Far off In the dim and desolate Past That shoreless and sorrowful sea Whero wrecks nre driven by the wavo and blast, Shattered, sunken, nnd lost, at last, Lies the heart that was brokon for mo Poor heart I Long ago broken for me I My loves wore Glory and Prldo and Art Ah, dnngorous rivals three I Sweet lips might quiver and warm tears start, Should on artist pause for n woman's heart Evon that which wan broken for mo 1 Poor heart I Too rare to be broken for mo 1 Ob, sho was moro mild than tho sumnor wlud, Mora fair than tho lllllosbol Moro truo than tho star with twilight twined Was tho spirit against whoso lovo I sinned Tho heart that was broken for mo Poor hoart I Cruelly broken for mo t I told her nn artist should wed his art That only his love should be ; No other should luro mo from ml no apart, I said ; nnd my oold wordn chilled her heart, The heart that was broken for mo Poor heart! Hopelessly broken for me I I spoke of the beautiful yoars to come, Iu tho lauds beyond tho soa Thoso years which roust bo so woarisomo To her; but patient lips wcro dumb ; In sllenco It broko for mo I Poor heart 1 Ilroko, yot complained not, for me 1 I pressed her hand, and rebuked her tears Lightly and carolussly; I said my triumphs should rcaoh her cars, Aud left her alono with dismal years Aud tho hoart that was broaklng for mo Poor heart ! Silently breaking for mo ! My days wcro a dream of summor time, My lifo was a victory j Famo wovo bright garlands to crown my prime, And I half forgot, in that radiant clime, Tho hoart that was broken for mo ' Poor hoart I Patiently breaking for me 1 Hut my wholo Ufa seemed, as tho swift years rolled Moro hollow and vnin to bo; Famo's bosom at best is hard and cold Ob, I would luivo given all praiso and gold For the hoart that was broken for mo Poor hoart 1 Tbanklesslf brokon for mo 1 Sick with longtng, hopo nnd dread I hurried across tho sea; She had wasted as though with grief, thoy said Poor child, poor child! and was long sinoo dead; Ah I dead lor mo love or mo Poor heart 1 Broken, aud vainly, for me ! Wolghcd down by a load too heavy to hold, Sho died unmurmurlngly ; nd I. remorsoful and unoonsoled, I dream of tho wasted days of obi, And or tho heart that was broken ror mc Poor heart.! Droicon so vainly for me ! And my soul cries out In bitter pain For the bliss that cannot be For tho love that never can come again, l or tho sweet young lifo that was lived In vain, And the heart that was broKcn for me Poor heart I DroKen and burled for roe I This is an agrccablo world, after nil. If wo would only brine ourselves to look at tho objects tbat surround us in their truo light, wo should sco beauty whero beforo wo behold deformity, and listen to harmony whero beforo wo could hear nothing but discord. To be euro tlicro is a great deal of anxiety and vexation to meet : wo cannot expect to sail upon a summor sea forovcr ; yet if wo preservo a calm oyo ana a steady hand, wo can so trim our sails and man ago our holm as to avoid tho quick sands, and woathor tho storms that thi eaten shipwreck. Wo aro members of ono groat family ; wo aro all travel ing tho samo road and shall arrivo at the sjmo goal, no breath tno iroo air, and aro subioct to the samo bounty, e shall lio down on tho bosom of our mmon mother. It is not becom- inr 1 then, that brother should hato brotl r : it is not proper that friend should deccivfl friend ; it is not right that neighbor should injure neighbor. Wo pity thirl man who can harbor en mity qgainstliis fellow ; ho loses half thJjcnjoymcnl of lifo ; ho embitters his owSv,?tenco. Let us tear from our eytliio jolorou medium that invests ov sftbjeot Aih tho greon huo of jeal ousy and svfpicion ; turn a deaf ear to tho talo ofcandal ; breath tho spirit of charity mom our lips ; and from our hearts If tliOAricb gushings of human kindnosi woA up as from a fountain so tholgoldon ago" will becomo no fiction, fcd tho "island of tho blessed" bloom irlmore than Uosporian beauty, fliosplian Ladiespabkually carry pins in thoir mouthfMwo mean in tho dressing-room and Jfcvs insist that no barm evor earnest i On tho contrary, there aro frequyt warnings in tho ehapo of fatal acoidtftts resuming from this practico.

How to Scouro an Independent Press. Wo commend tho following excellent articlo upon tho abovo subject, taken from tho Whito Cloud Chiof, to our readors. Somo of our legislators would bo benefitted by reading it : Pcoplo lament tho want of an inde pendent and uncorruptod press ; and we hoar a great deal about "venal," "mer cenary," or "subsidized" presses. The evils complained of really exist to an alarming extent. Thoy cannot bo wholly remedied, but may bo in a great part; nnd tho remedy lios in the bauds ot tho people, it tnoy uesiro acuango for tho better, lot them stop lamenting, and apply tho romcdy. It lies simply in giving newspapers a uecont support. If it is desired to havo tho press inde pendent and uncorruptod, it must have support 8UII1CICIII to ciiuuiu iv iw uu au. Poonlo nocloet thcit homo papers, bo- causo thoy are not as largo, and do not contain as much reading matter, ns mammoth city papers, which run off many editions o tho samo matter, nnu can thereby afford to send out a weekly edition at low cost. But home papers aro "Jowcd" down below a paying prico, and then they are askod to tako it out in all manner of unsaleablo "truck," at tho very highest prices. If they show any independence in this narticular. or rofuso to come down to tho terms of tho subscriber, they lose their customer. Thcro is another crcatevil. In West ern country towns, tho subscription prico of a paper would not keep it run nine thrco months in tho year in fact, just now, thero is no profit on subscrip tion. The papers must uepenu mostly upon advertising and public printing. Yot how do they faro in this respect? Yoar after year, as rogular as tho Leg islature meots, thero is a war openod against printers. Men who uro living at tho public crib, send up memorials and petitions, stigmatizing printers as paupers and pickpockots, and demand protoction against them. Efforts are made to dispense with really necessary nublio nrintina : and on that which can not possibly bo dispensed with, the rates aro reduced far below a remuner ative prico. If a printer occasionally stumbles upon a paying job, ho is at onco nounucu us u jjuuhu Muimuni, without any account being taken of tho v'drv many iobs upon which ho makes nothing, nnd of tho vast amount of matter inserted for nothing, tor which ho justly ought to havo pay. Lawyers' fees, mechanics' wages, and tho prices of farmer's produco, nro never legisla ted against ; but a discrimination must be mado against printers. Under such circumstances, how is it nossiblo to havo a puro press ? Whon, under the tender mercies of such a sys tem, a printer finds himself head over oars in debt, without means to purchaso material, pay hands, or buy bread, who can wonder if thoy greedily accept a bonus from some wealthy political as pirant, in order to placo thomselvcs in a position of easo and comfort? Their necessities will bind them to tho faults of their benofactor. They will roason to themselves, that perhaps ho is not so bad as ho is represented : that ho is as good as tho common run ; or that, if bo is not exactly sounu, no cannon uo much harm, and thero aro plenty of others to keep him straight. Thus thoy will seek for excuses to justify their courso, when tuoy aro poruaps aidine. to bring about a publio calami ty. Women hold thoir virtuo uoarnr than all elso ; yot, pressed by want, thousands of them bartor it for broad. So tho press, naturally mclinod to bo freo and indopondent, may bo induced by necessity to sell its inilucnco to un worthy purposes, wo repoai, u mc people desiro a puro and independent press, lot them cnauio it to uo bo, anu thov will have thoir heart's wish. Noth ing is so humiliating to an editor as to bo compellod to act as a dependent, n menial, or a mouth-piece to soma indi vidual ; and ho will coaso doing so, when tho pooplo begin to appreciate his necessities, and coase inventing contri vances and enactments to grind him down.

Tho fees nro as follows : On domestic letters to any part of the United States or Territories, 20 conts each ; on letters addressed to Canada, 5 cents each ; on letters addressed to Gorraany, or any part of tho German Austrian postal union, 5 conts each.

No country in tho world presents so many inducements to immigration as Missouri. Tho Stato is in tho center of tho Union, nnd in tho valley of the Mississippi, tho most fortilo region in tho world. It lies in that soction most favored in soil, climate and productions. It furnishes cheap lands, frco pas- turo, a short winter, an early spring, n long summer and autumn, that matures crops without fear of frost. It is not noccssnry to work half the year in order to got enough to livo on tho other half : nor is it requisite to spend halt tho valuo of tho crops ob turned in the fall in manures to enrich tho lands. Wo' can sell all wo cau raise at cood prices. Our prnirio Innds need no clonnng, out aro all lit tor tho plow nnd fenco. It is a superior stock and sheep rais ing region, and it is not ncceesary to fodder cattle six or nino months a year, as in Canada and parts of New Eng land. On our smooth prairies so much moro can bo accomplished with agricultural labor-saving implements that farming is more profitablo than in tho East. Wo havo not only timber sufiicicnt, but coal in groat abundance Grain nnd fruits of all kind : tobac co, and oven cotton and swoot potatoes aro produced in enormous quantities. In soil, minerals, railroads and riv ers, in production and pooplo, it is tho loading Stato west of tho Missicsippi, and in ton years may bo . tho fourth State in tho Union in importance. Stato Suicido. A recent numbor of the London Times which during the war robcls und copperheads regardod as tho high est lMigusu auuioruy hub mo luiiuw ing on tho present political status of tho South : It is a Gimplo fact that tho land south of Mason k Dixon's lino, onco parcel ed into States, forming parts or the Union, is now a conquered territory, lying in tho hands of tho conquon-rs, and awaiting their disposition of it anew. South Carolina is now nothing moro than a coocranhical expression. Tho continuity of tho lifo of each South ern Commonwealth is nbsolutoly oroK cn, and whon South Carolina comes it must corao juat ns Utah or Idaho might bo admitted. It must start afresh, as in determining whon and under what condition it shall start7 afresh, ns in determining whon and under what con dition Utah shall bo ontitlod to becomo a m'embor of tho Union. It will, no doubt, bo wise in adraittingjnto the Foderal Union States from tho South, to adhero to the old boundanos : but there is no compulsion to do bo. An old minister enforced tho neces sity of differonco of opinion by argur mont: "Now, if overybody hnd been of my opinion, thoy would nil nave wanted my old woman." HEDGES. Wo mako tho following extracts, upon tho subject of Osago Orange Hedge, from tho American Agriculturist: It is not necessary to advocate tho Osago Orango as a hedgo plant. It has probably been moro extensively planted than all others, nnd whorevor tho win ters nro not too severe, it is ono of our most valuablo fenco plants. In tho pres ent articlo wo merely wish to say a word about tho young plants and Bccds, to givo a general answer to numerous lot tcrs of inquiry. Thoro was a largo quan tity of seed sown last spring nnd many will loso their plants from not knowing that tho first winter is usually vory se vere upon them especially in ground liable to bo thrown by tho frost. Tho proper way is to tako up all tho seod iingfiwhon frost has chocked tho growth. Tho bod, is usually mowod over, to ro movo tho immoturo tops, and tho plants aro m'thcr plowed out, or if tho quantity is small, dug by the spado. Tho plants aro thon assorted, all of tho samo eizo put together and tied in bundles of 100. To preservo them during tho winter, they may bo placed in tho collar and covered with Band, sandy earth, or saw dust fresh from tho mill. Anything that will keep them from drying nnd not too wet, will answer. Tho plants may also be hcclod-in out of doors, if a properly drainod placo bo Bolcctcd. Thus treated, the plants winter safely, and tho assorting, which is always nec essary to socuro evenness in tho hedgo, is dono more nt leisure than it can be in spring. With regard to seed, in aex- as and Arkansas, whero the treo grows naturally, tho fruit, when ripo, is thrown into heaps to vot, and tho seeds aro washed from tho pulp. This does well enough whero tho season is long enough to maturo tho fruit on tho treo. At tho north thcro are many old hedges and trees also, that bear fruit, which, though it attains its full size, does not ripen upon tho tree. "With this fruit a diflor ent courso must bo followed. Tho seed must havo nn opportunity to perfect itself within tho fruit. Tho fruit is in sizo and Bhapo like an orango, and in structuro much like an enormous round mulberry. Each seed is surrounded by lleshy onvolopcs, which, though tho seed may bo quito immaturo whon tho fruit is gathered, servo to nourish and por fect it. With tho northern fruit it is tbcreforo best to spread it and let it ripen under cover, and after tho seed is fully doveloped it may bo allowed to freeze Tho fruit is mashed in spring and tho seeds aro separated by washing. November, 1866. Osage Ouanoe Seed. Now that this long wantod seod is again offered for sale, wo havo questions ns to how to sprout it, nnd if it is to bo plnntcd in placo, whero tho hedgo is to stand. It should bo frozen boforo sowing : but as it is now too lata to do that, tho seed must bo soaked. Pour scalding wator, as hot as tho hand can bear, over tho seed, and lot tho wholo stand in n warm placo, repeating tho oporation evory day for fivo days. Then drain off tho wator, and koop tho soods coverod in a Bballow vessol in a warm room until thoy begin to sprout, whon thoy may be sown. As tho plants aro liablo to bo thrown out by tho first winter's frosts, it is neces sary to raiso tho plants in a nursery. Rich land in fino tilth is marked out with drills, about two feot apart, or wido enough to work with tho cultiva tor; bow tho seed thinly, about an inch apart, and cover two inches deep. Keep carefully cultivated tho wholo season. Warder's Hedges and Evergreens, gives tho various methods of forming hodges. April, 1800. Setting Osage Obanoe Hedges. It will not do to set Osago Orango plants in autumn. Tho yearling plants aro vory tender, nnd neod to bo token from tho seed bed and protected through tho winter, by sotting thom in boxes of oarth in tho collar, or by stacking them up out of doors and covering sufficiently with earth to provont froczing.
