TSIK l.ii.tm OF DEC AY.
Once more. All how often, in
l.ow many thonsand writings have
the thoughts been uttered. that
rise as we gaz ujk.ii the mellow
ing landscape and the serene sky!
Knr li?M» have murmured
dreamily. “* nee more,” and
hearts have grown as calm as the
sot: air. They have drank the
medicine, and soothed though sad
dened by its * fleets, they have not
cared often to ask what drug ol
sleep, what opiate of peace, hnr
been mingled with it; bitterness.
Tlie Fall is coming with glories
of deepening color; its hazy sun
shine, its azure distance; and its
richly lined foliage, do vers and
fruit—ail, the regal paraphenalia
of death. The gay vivacity of
youth, the happy maturity of the
Vear is over, and now is the decline
Vfhy is that the sadness of the
thought does not makes us abhor
the period of decay t fan its ran
iiv tinted ornaments so deck out
destruction as to conceal its h«r
• ror from onr hearts? i he beauty
that appeals to tl.e external eye,
alone soothes the sight, flatters
the sense; but lias no power to cast
a spell over the sjdrit. No gor
geous panorama that enrolls itself
before the vision, and is silent for
the uiittd, can arouse for a mo
ment the expiring s| ark,orquencii
the corroding tire. There is in all
nature an external ami an tuner
beauty. A delight to the eye*, a
combination of rich (••dors and lair
forms, covers over like a mantle,
the spiritual truth within. Wit
ching ami wondering as it is, the
beauty of form and hue is nothing
more thau a representation, a re
minder. a mcinoi ial of a noblei
manifestation, which will '.ever
present itself to our thongiits with
out recalling the indwelling glory
So inextricably are these two form
of truth associated in onr minds
that we are scarcely conscious o:
their separate existence. Wi
imagine tliat it is the lordiruhtt ol
Jiature that invigorati* orsoothot
or saddens, and cani.ot n-eognix*
the idea which is linked with it it
eternal union. We wonder why
we cannot, at our will, shsike of
the enchaining thought; why lha
which is but a transient itupressioi
on these j»erisbable orbs, can cal
up undying regret, or admin isu
immoral calm. The true enjoy
luent of natnre is only tasted bt
th> se to whom her meaning pre
scuts itself as quickly as her u -rd*
and who perceive the out war
and the inner beaoty ia equal aw
mingling elements.

trates info their inner temple. It
;enters those interior sauctuaiics
where their secret* are hid, and
find# (here the divinity of which
they are the shrine*; and we ask,
what mournful thought, what sad
truth is the centre of all these
shitting scenes of melancholy
sweetness) In a whispering breath
we hear the secret. It i# the same
we have heard so often before, the
doom passed on all living. We
-have read the stern decree in all
lit* livid horror on the fittes of the
; dead, but X"a tire, now. tenderly
1 murmurs in our ear#'he sorrow

leaf that float# by on the evening

but gently as a vesper hymn
;*Tlie trail of the serpent is over
'them all.” The gnat battle was
i won by Evil, untobj age* ago,
; and every year at this sad season,
the vietorv is commemorated.—
i Every year the awful conqtterer
throws a lighted torch upon the
| earth and spread* ruin over its
fair face. The forest* will soon
, be gorgeous with the tlame.—
Frightful monarch, what can we
do, bnt submit like slaves as we
are? Did not onr treachery lose
j the day?
Every year the creative energy
i bursts forth anew, rising for
; awhile triumphant, like the fitful
1 flickering of an expiring lamp.—
Every Spring conies hud and blos
som and lift', every Autumn, fall
: ing leaves, withered flowers, and
death. The first delights of tin.
year have scarcely rij>eoed into
summer, when the vast wing of
lime comes swooping over them,
and drags them all away. This is
i the gigantic spectre that haunts
the closing year. This terrible
idea of devastating time is the
grief that plunges us in autumnal
gloom.
One thought alone soothes the
despair. The ruined tower has ■
gained a new beauty, the softened j
outline.of the ancient mountain a
new dignity, tire fading leaves a
giorv of color, for he is also, 7 tnu j

AN HONEST -MAN.
“ The noblest work of (»od, ”
and yet how few there are!, An
envious, censcieuce stricken world
looks on and laughs contempt u
, on sly, because lie dares to obey
the distates of a whispering con
science, bnt in the sight of high
heaven lie stands approved—an
honest man. lie stops no! to ask
if the world pronounces it well,
| but is physically and mentally,
natures’ foreman, disdaining that
| miserable severity—that despica
ble ltondage that must always stop
to ask. “ will the world say?”
An tltmcK Man—show us one,
and we will show yon a happy
man, we will point you to a strong
man ; not mighty in axtcrior man
ifestations alone, but inherently
so. Possessing within himself the
reason of action and the ultimate

stamp, who is willing to walk in

own refreshments with him, and
drinking from the secret springs
moral and intellectual truth, that

An /torn -/ man,—who does not

He stands alone—the glorious ar
chitect of bis own fortune—the
universe a debtor to his worth;
while firm in his punx-we, constant
in hi - integrity, undaunted in his

to men, he will stand unmoved

WIIO TIIE DEICE WAS IT.
Brown tells us a Vermont story
which he says, is authentic as the
best of the Post anecdotes, and
certainly, nothing more can 1-e re
quired. A respectable old gen
tleman in Windsor county; many
rears ago, had an ambition to rep
resent his town in the State Le
gislature. Though a man of good
character and every way able e
nough for the office he sought, he
happened, as Aunt Peggy used to
say. to have “ a great many win
ning ways to make folks hate him,
and was in fact the most nnj»opn
lar man in town. Going to ‘squire
X., an influential man who Hap
pened to he friendly to him, he
laid his case before him, and ask
ed his influence; saying that lie
dull! t t-X}«CCI neip wiidoui paying
for it, anti declaring that if he
could get X s influence lie was
sure to be elected, l’he Squire
“put in his best jumps" for his
man; but when the ballot box was
turned, another mai was declared
elected. The disappointed eandi
da.e called out to know Imw the
rote stood, and learned that lie
had got just three rotes! “Bat 1
dor.t under 'and it," said he. turn
ing to the Squire with a chon fal
len countenance. “Nor I, either,
said the Squire, “I put in my vote;
y u put in another; hut who the

A TERRIBLE ENCOUNTER
WITH BULL DOGS.
Yesterday, Reed R. Young, tlie
well known pilot, was terrible bit
ten and lacerated by two fierce
bull dogs, the property of a milk
man by the name of Rmehearr,
we believe. It occurred in the
Salt River lane in the lower part
of the city, just as Mr. Young was
walking towards the rail road
track.—The dogs suddenly jump
ed on him one seizing him by the
calf of the leg and the other at
tempting to catch him by the
t: *--at. He had presence ot mind
• alhe ent to throw up his arm*in
defence of hit* throat, and the deg
seized bin: by the arm, tearing
awnv the clothe* and flesh in it
terrible manner. The other dog
tore the flesh from hi* leg. and se
vered an artery. He then Caught
Young by the top of the head
with hi* teeth, and literally tore
ofl'tbe scalp. The other dog fas
tened hi* fangs in his breast, and
they had so completely worried
and" bitten him that lie was almost
exhausted and entirely overpow
ered. and but for the timely assis
tance of n neighbor, would no
doubt have been killed outright.
The man attacked them with a
eluh, and had much difficulty ill
goMing them loose fioni their
prey.

meeting again after the long ab

pain of separation. After an ab

A. It. Johnston, of Mississippi, aud

State. Twenty nine years ago,
we entered a little printing office

j with the above gentlemen as edi
1 tors and proprietors; wo bad all
things in common, aud the prin
, tcr's devil was about as important
a personage in the eyes of the peo
ple then as editors are now. The
iacf is a printing-office twenty nine
years ago. dazzled the eyes ami at
tracted the admiration of all who
came near it. We remember with
what pride and pleasure we hail
ed the advent of every Saturday
morning. Then it was that we e
inerged from the office with all
pride and pomp of a militia cap
tain of olden times on parade day.
Early on the morning of that day
(when editoishad ten quire of pa
]>er to print on,) we went forth,
with the “11 era! of a noisy world,
with 1»"js from all parts of town
lumbering at our back!” Only

ples aud cakes) were permitted to
ap; roach ami touch the “Herald;”

along with ns. Thus we paraded
i the principal streets and alleys for
an hour, and then would return to
the office, covered with plory e
noitgh to last untl the next Satur
day. Ah! those were happy days
for a printer’s devil who carried
the “Herald” from the Ramapc

now for tiie first time sounded
