THE HEAVENLY SECRET.
Mr. Genree Cooper fendi ut tbl stately and
sustained poem oil the grave theme of immor
tality:
Does the dark and soundless river
Stretch so wide
The homeward rolling tldo
Over which have crossed
Our loved nnd early lost,
That thetr unsealed eyes may never tee
The further side
Where still amid this coll and misery
. We bide !
Is the realm of their transition
Close at hand
To this our living land ?
Nearer than we dream t
Can they catch the gleam
Of our smiles and hear the words we speak?
And see our deeds!
And, looking deeper than our eyes may seek,
Our needs ?
Do they mingle in our gladness ?
Do thay grievo
When nays of good we leave 1
Do they know ench thought and hope ?
While wo In shadows grope,
Can tboy bear the Future's high behest,
Yet lack tho power
To lead us from our HI or to arrest
The hour!
When they find us bowed with sorrow
Do they sigh ?
Or when earth passes by
For them do they forget
The careR that here beset,
Their well beloved t Or do they wait
(Oh be It thus I)
And watch beside the goldeu gate
For us f
We are yearning for their secret ;
Though we call
No auswera ever fall
Upon oor dullard ears
To'qitcll our nameless fears,
Yet God Is over all, what'er my be,
And trusting so,
Patience, my heart ! a little while, and wo
Shall know,

DEATH.
A Funeral Discourse- by Viotor Hueo.
An American lady passing tho winter
in JJreaden, capital of saxony, sonus to
the editor of the Philadelphia Press, tho
following translation of an address de
livered some months aco by tho French
poet, Victor-Hugo, at tbo interment of
Mibs tinny Do l'utron :
Within a few weeks wo have boen oc
cupiedwith two sisters tho oncwohnvc
married, and now wo tiro burying the
other. Such is tho perpetual agitation
of life. Let us bow, my brutliern, be
fore inflexible destiny, and let us bow
with hope. Uur eyes aro made to weep,
but thoy aro uiado to see. Our heart is
mado to guQ'er, but it is also made to bo
liovo. Fuith in another existence springs
from tlio faculty of loving. Let us not
forget that in this inquiet life, which is
controlled by love, it is tho heart that
believes. The son hopes agaiu to find
Ins father. The mother will not consent
to lose her child forever. Tbistevolt
ngainst annihilation is tho grandeur of
man. The heart cun nover err. The
flesh is a dream, which fades away. This
trance, were it the end of man, would
take from our existence every sanction.
We cannot content, outsclvcs with this
vapor, which is mero matter ; wo must
have certainty Whoever loves, knows
and feels that tho prospects of man are
not upon this earth ; to love is to live
after life. Without this faith, no deep
gift of the heart wero possible. To
love, which is the aim of man, would be
his punishment ; paradiso would bo a
hell. No ; let it bo declared tho loving
creature demands tho immortal creature.
The heart must lmvo a sun. There is a
hoart in this coffin, and that heart lives.
At this very moment it listens to my
words. Emily De Putron was tho gen
tle prido of a respectable family. Her
friends and neighbors found enchant
ment in her graces and pleasure in her
smile. She was liko a full-blown flower
of joy in tho house. She is gone.
Whither is Bho gono t Into darkness I
No ! It Is wo who aro In tho Oiuknees
she is in tne uawning ngut. olio is in
the light, in the truth, in tho reality, in
tho recompense These early dead, who
havo douo no ill, aro the blessed of the
grave, and their heads riso gently from
tho tomb towards a mysterious crown.
Emily Do Putron has gono to seek on
high everlasting sincerity tho comple
ment of an innocent existence. Youth
has gone to eternity, beauty towards tho
ideal, tho pearl towards tho ocean, a
spirit towards its uod. The soul, the
marvel of the groat celestial departure
which we call death, is here thoso who
thus depart still remain near us. Thoy
are in a world of light, but thoy as teu-
der witnesses hover about our world of
darkness.
Thev are over us and near us. Oh
whoever it may bo who havo seen such
a beloved boirg sinking into tne tomo,
do not think it has left vou. Tho beauty
of death is its presence Inexpressible
preseni-o of a soul which smiles upon uur
tearful eves. The being that we mourn
has disappeared, but she has not depart
ed. We no longer see its gontlo face,
hut we feel that wavo beneath its wings.
Tho dead aro invisible but they are not
Hhscnt. Let us bo iust to death It is
not. us has been said, a ruin and a snaro.
It is an error to think that there in the
tlarknes8 of tho open grave, all is lost to
ns. Thero everything is found again.
Tho crave is a placo of restitution ; there
.. i ' c . .1
tne soul resumea tuo inuiiiin , wu-ic i
recovers its plentitudo. There it ro
enters on the possession of all it a mys
terinus nature"; it is sot free from tho
body, from want, from its burthen, from
fatality. Death is tbo greatest of liber
ties ; it is' also the farthest progress
Death js a higher stefp for nil who havo
lived upon its height. Dazzling and
v ly,i every one receives his increase,
overything is transfigured in the light
and by the light. Ho who has been no
moro than virtuous on earth becomes
boauteous : he who has only been beau
teous becomes sublimo, and h6 who has
only been sublime becomes good. And
now I. who am speakinc, why am I
here? What brings me to this gravo,
and by what right do I address the
dead 7. and who am 1 i JNothing ! JJut
I am Wrong I am something. I am a
proscrlpt. Yesterday exiled by vio
lence, to-day a voluntary exile. A pro
script is a vanquished, a culminntod, a
porsoctted 'man ; a man wounaeu oy
fate. A proscript-is an innocent mon,
weighed down by malediction. His
blessing ought to1 have virtue in it. I
bless this grave; I bless the noblo, gra
oiouj being' that lies here. In the. des
ert wo find tho oasis in exile.; wo meet
with souls. Emily Do Purton has heon
ono of tho lovely wo havo met. Icomo
to pay her the debt owed by a proscript
whom she has consoled. I bless her in
tho dark profound. In tho name of
the sorrow, wheroon sho gently beamed;
in tho namo of tho (rials of destiny,
which aro for her ended, but which con
tinue for us ; in tho namo of terrestrial
things, which onco sho hoped for, and of
celestial things, which sho nows obtains ;
in tho name of all sho loved, I blcs this
lifeless being ; I bless her in her boau
ty, in her youth, in her innocence, in
her life, nnd in her doath. I bless her
in her whito sopulchrul robes ; in her
homo, which sho has left dcsolato ; in
her coffin, which her mother has filled
with flowers, and which God is about to
fill with stars.
Whnt wo Got by tho Treaty.
Tho Russian Treaty has been mado
public, apparently without authority,
and is printed in our columns to-day.
In tho first article tho boundaries of the
ceded territory aro defined ; in tho sec
ond is trunsftrrod to tho United States
tho titlo of all public property with tho
exception of tho Greek Churches, which
aro to remain tho property of their mem
bers ; in tho third, it is stipulated that
tho inhabitants, excepting uncivilized
tribes, shall, after three yoars residence,
be admitted to citizonship of tho United
States, while tho Esquimaux and Indi
ans shall bo subject to our authority ;
in tho fourth, tho formal terms of cx
chango aro definod ; the fifth provides
for tho withdrawal of Russian troops ;
in tho sixth, tho cession of territory and
dominion is declared to bo frco and un
incumbered by an reservations ; and in
tho seventh, tho date of ratification is
fixod.
It is at least a satisfaction to know
that the treaty binds our Government to
no moro than a payment of a certain
sum in gold, and tho admission of Rus
sian settlors to citizenship, and that any
slight valuo tho cession may have is not
lessoned by reservations in favor of
British hunters and traders. To share
tho questionable advantages of tho ter
ritorv would bo to yield tbem entirely
for there are somo things which oro too
small to bo divided. But though tbis is
theoretically a satisfaction, practically
it would havo mado no approciablo dif
tcrence to the people ot this country
an tho traders in xsortu America hac
been given equal rights in the territory
by tho treaty. In tho deserts of Russian
America tho laws aro not likely to bo
enforced, and tho hunters nround tho
Great Beard Lake will care littlo for the
141st degree of wost latitude Wo sim
ply obtain by tho troaty tho nominal pos-
sofSion of impassable deserts of snow,
vast tracts of dwarf tunbor, frozen riv
ers, inaccessible mountain ranges, with
a few islands whero tho climato is moro
moderate and a scanty population is
supported by fishing nnd trading with
the Indians. Virtually wo get, by an
expenditure of seven millions in gold,
Sitka and tho.Pnnco ot Wales Islands.
All tho rest is wasto territory, and no
energy of tho American people will bo
sufficient to make mining speculations
in tho sixtieth degreo north latitude
profitablo, or to reclaim wildernesses
which border on tho Arctic Ocean. A
glance at tho map will Bhow that this
' . , ... -.!' !.!. .L- .:. ;

sixtieth degree, nnd is divided into noar-

Nitictv-nino hundredths of Russian
America are absolutely useless ; the re
mainine hundredth may be of somo val
uo to tho Russians who Bettlod it, but is
certainly not worth Beven millions of
dollars to a nation already possessed of
moro territory than it can decently gov
ern, and burdened with debt. On tho
ontrory. it is certain that the expenso
and trouble of a Territorial government
or six governments, as wo hear air.

inhosnifablo land.' would far outweigh

any advontago from its codfish or boar-

ment, and by the next session of Con
gress we trust tho folly of tho purchase

Importanco of Advertising.
In tho year 1862, Edwin T. Frecdloy,
Esq., of Philadelphia, published a book
entitlod "Practical Treatiso on Busl-
ness." Boforo publishing it ho asked
Barnum, tho celebrated showman, who
has mado a half dozen fortunes in his
time, ro furnish him a communication
embodying the results of his experience)
and observation. Barnum furnished tho
articlo, which Frcedloy published in his
work and whtch wp find published also
in Barnum's Lifo, ''writton by himself,"
undor tho titlo of "Barnum's llules lor
success in Business." Thero were ten
rules laid down ; tho eighth was as fol
lows :
"8. Advcrtiso your business. Do not
hide your light under a bushol. What
ever your occupation or calling may bo,
if it needs support from tho public, ad
vertise it thoroughly and efficiently in
eotno shape or other that will arrest pub
lic attention. I freely confess that what
success I havo had in my lifo may fair
ly bo attributed moro to tho press than
nearly all other causes combined. Thero
may possibly bo occupations that do
not requiro advertising, but I cannot
well concoivo what thoy are
Men in business will Bomctimes toll
you that thoy tried advertising, and that
it did not pay. This is only when ad
vertising is dono sparingly nnd grudg-
ingiy. liomccpainio uosc3 or auvcrtis-
ing will not pay, perhaps it is liko
half a portion of physio, making tho
patient sick, but effecting nothing. Ad
minister liberally, and tho euro will bo
suro and permanent.
bomo say "they cannot auord to ad-
vortiso." Thoy mistako they cannot
afford ?io to advertise. In this coun
try, whero everybody reads tho newspa
pers, the man must havo a thick skull
who does not sco that theso are tho
cheapest and best mediums through
which ho can speak to tho public whero
ho is to find his customers. Put on tho
appearance of business, and generally.
tho realizing will iollow. The farmer
plants his seed, nnd whilo ho is sleep
ing ma corn anu potatoes uiu growiug.
bo with advertising. Wnilo you aro
sleeping or eatings or conversing with
ono sot of customers, your advertise
ments aro being read by hundreds and
thousands of persons who nover saw or
hoard of your business, nnd nevor would
had it not been for your advertisements
appearing in tho nowspapers.
Tho business men of this country do
not, as a general thing, appreciate tho
advantago of advertising thoroughly.
Occasionly tho public aro aroused nt
witnessing tho success of a Swain, a
Brandroth, a Townsend, a Gcnin, or a
Knot, and express astonishment at tho
rapidity with which theso gentlomen nc-
quiro fortunes, not reflecting tho earuo
path is opened to all who dare pursue
it. But it needs nerve and faith. Tho
former to cnablo you to launch out
thousands on tho uncertain waters of tho
future ; the latter to tench you that af
ter many days it shall suroly return,
bringing a hundred or a thousand fold
to him who appreciates tho advantages
of "printer's ink, properly applied."
In a certain Sabbath School the Su
perintendent mado a powerful appeal to
tho scholars to bo active and useful, and
among other things, ho told them they
should all bo locomotives, each taking
along his train to heaven. Tho next
Sabbath, iust as tho school opened, in
came one of tho best and most zealous
boys with thirteen new scholars behind
him, and went up the aisle uttering a
noiso choo, choo imitativoof tho en
gine, to the amazement ot tne auperin-
tendont and scnoiars. "wnat aoes mis
mean?" asked tho astonished Superin
tendent. "Why," answered tho boy,
"vou said wo must all bo locomotives,
and hore I am with thirteen cars behind
mo."
A correspondent of the St. Joseph
Herald, writing from Deer Lodge Val-
ey, Montana, says business of all kinds
is vciy dull there ot present, as mining
operations are at a stand still for tho
winter, with the exception of several
quartz mills, nnd two or threo smelting
furnaces that are in operation, and' that
employ a number of hands. The most'
exoiting topio on hand is the expected
election of a dolegate to represent tho
Territory in the Fortieth Congress. The
