BY WASHINGTON IRVING. The grave is the of deal of true It is there the divine passion of the soul manifests its superiority the instinctive impulse of mere ani mal attachment. The latter must continually refreshei and kept alive by the presence of its object; but the ore that is seated in the soul can live on loner remembrance. The mere inclinations of sense languish and decline with the charms, which excited them, and turn with shudder ing and disgust from the dismal pre cincts of the tomb: but It ' is thence that tru'y spiritual affection rises pu rifled from every sensual desire, and returns like a holy name, to illumine and sanctify the heart ol the sum vor. The sorrow for the dead is the on ly sorrow from which we refuse to be divorced, livery other would we seek to heal every other affection to forget but this would we con sider it a duty to keep open; this af fection we cherish and brood over in solitude. Where is the mother who would willingly forget the infant that perished like a blossom from her arms, though every recollection is a pengT Where is the child who would willingly forget the most ten der of parents, though but to re member, be but to lament? Who, even in the hour of agony, would for get the friend over whom he mourns' Who, even when the tomb is clos ing upon the remains of her he most loved, when he feels his heart as it were, crushed in the closing of its portal, would accept of consolation that. must be bought by forgetful ness? No the love that survives the tomb is one of the noblest attributes of the soul. If is has woes, it has ikewise its delights; and when the overwhelming burst of grief is calm ed into the gentle tear of recollec tion when the sudden anguish and the convulsive .agon v over the pres ent rums of all that we most loved, is softened away into pensive medita tion on all thatit was in thedavs of its oveliness who would root out such a sorrow from the heart? Though t may sometimes, throw a passing cloud over the bright hour of gaietv, or spread a deeper sadness over the hour of gloom, yet who would ex change it even for the song of pleas ure, or the burst of revelry? No there is a voice from the tomb sweet er than song. There is a remem brance cf the dead to which we turn even from the charms of the living. Oh, the grave! It burries every er rorcovers every defect, extinguish es every resentment! From its peaceful bosom spring nothing but fond regrets and tender recollections. Who can look down upon the grave even of an enemy, and not feel a compunctious throb, that he should ever have warred with the poor handful of earth that lies beneath him. But the grave of those we love what a place of meditation! There it is that we call up in long review the whole history of virtue and gen tleness, and the thousand endear ments lavished upon us almost un heeded in the daily intercourse of in timacy; there it is that the tender ness, the solemn, awful tenderness ol the parting scene, the bed of death! with all its stifled grief! its noiseless attendance! its mute, watchful assid uities! the last testimonial of expiring love! the feeble, fluttering, thrilling oh! how thrilling pleasure ol the hand! the last fond look of the gaz ing eye, turning upon us even from the threshold of existence! the faint, faltering a c c e n ts, struggling in death to give one more assurance of Section. Ay, go to the grave of buried love, and meditate! There settle the account with thy. conscience for eve ery past benefit unrequited, every past endearment unregarded, of that departed being, who can never, nev er return to be soothed by the con trition. If thou art a child, and hast ever added a sorrow to the soul, or a fur row to the silvered brow of an af fectionate parent if thou art a hus band, and hast ever caused the fond bosom that ventured its whole hap piness in thy arms, to doubt for one moment of thy kindness or thy truth; if thou art a friend that hast ever wronged, in thought, or word, or deed, the spirit that generously con fided in thee if thou art a lover, and has ever given one unmerited pane to that true heart which now lies cold and still beneath thy feet, then be sure that every unkind look, evenr ungracious word, every un gracious action will come thronging " 1 ! back upon tny memory, Knocking dolefully at thy soul then be sure dolefully at tny soul wen oo sure that thou wilt lie down, sorrowing repeDtant, on the grave, and to be utter the unheard groan, and pour out the unheard and unavailing. Then weave the chaplet of flowers, and strew the beauties of nature bout the grave, console the broken spirit, if thou canst, with these ten der, yet futile tributes of regret; and take warning by the bitterness this, thy contrite affliction over dead, and henceforth be more faith ful and affectionate in the discharge of thy duties to the living. A Singular Adventure. Once on a time a traveller stepped into a post-coach. He was a young man, just starting in life. He found six passengers about him, al! of them grey headed and extremely aged men. The youngest appeared to have seen at least eighty winters. Our young traveller was struck with the singular, mild and happy aspect which distinguished his fellow pas sengers, and determined to ascertain the secret of long life, and the art of making the aged comlortable. He first addressed the one who was appa rently the oldest, who said he always ed a regular and abstemious life, ea- ing vegetables and drinking water. 1 he young man was rather daunted at this, inasmuch as he liked the good things of life. He addressed the sec ond, who astonished him by saying that he had eaten roast beef and gone to bed regularly "high" for seventy years adding that all de pended on regularity. The third had prolonged his days by never seeking or accepting office; the fourth by resolutely abstaining from political or religious controversy; and the fifth by going to bed at sunset and rising at dawn. The sixth was ap parently much younger than the rest; his hair was less gray, and there were more of it a placid smile de noting a perlertly upright con science, mantled his lace, and his voice was jocund and strong. They were all surprised to learn that by ten years he was the oldest man in the coach. "How!" exclaimed our voung trav eller, "how is it that you havtt thus preserved the freshness of life? where there is one wrinkle on your brow, there are fifteen on that of each of your juniors tell me, I pray, the secret of your long lile!" "It is no mystery, said the old man, "I have eaten meat, and I have eaten vegetables, I have held a pub ic office; 1 have dabbled in politics, and 1 have written religious pam phlets. I have sometimes gone to bed at sunset, and at noon; but I always paid promptly for my news paper!" An Item for Greybeards. The True Union, of Baltimore, publishes the following from "an au thentic source." As it may be of im portance to some friends "we wot of," we give it a place: A distinguished General (Twiggs) returned from the Mexican war cov ered with "glory." He had, how ever, two marks of hard service which laurels could not hide as they did Caesar's baldness. One was a head as white as wool, and the other a cutaneous eruption on his forehead. For the latter he was ad vised to try a mixture of sulphur, and sugar of lead and rose water. In ap plying it, some ol the mixture moist ened the hair on his forehead, and after a while this part of his hair re sumed its original color. He then applied the mixture to all his hair, and it all became, and is now, of its primitive sandy hue. He communi cated the fact to some of his friends in Washington especially to some ex-members, who are widowers and seeking preferment and it has been found efficacious in every instance. It does not dye the hair, but seems to operate upon the roots, and re store the original color. The recipe is as follows: 1 drachm Lac Sulphur; drachm, Sugar of Lead; 4 ounces Hose Water; mix them; shake the phial on using the mixture, and bathe the hair twice a day for a week, or longer if neces sary. One of the most heartless displays of political feeling ever heard of took place when Sir Robert Peel was on his death bed. A wealthy farmer of Suffolk county caused the bells of the parish of Bures St. Mary to ring a merry peal. In another place a land holder sent a crier round with the news "that the farmers' enemy was at the point of death." Texas insists that the late President Polk recognized her right to that por tion of New Nexico which she now claims. If this be so, what is meant by the passage in his message to Congress, of December 8, 1840, whicn reads as follows: "By rapid movements the Vtt Fe, out Province of New Mexico, with Santa . its capital, has been captured with out bloodshed." tsven. Jour, A Tale of Horror. a- of While traveling a couple of since, we heard from the lips of friend one of the most beart-rending recitals we have listened to for long time. He was put of! from steamboat at or near Wolf Island, about twenty-five miles below the mouth of the' Ohio, for the purpose of collecting a debt from a man liv ing about five miles back in the country, on the Missouri side, we think. With a carpet bag in his hand, he had followed a narrow path about three miles, when came across a small cabin.. Yet 'cab in' would not describe the place habitation, for such it proved to be. It was a little dilapidated shed, with no boards on one side and great cre vices on the other side and in the roof. He would have passed it by, but moans from the inside told that it was occupied. Wishing to inquire his road, he stopped, .and stood be fore the open side of the shed, and gazed upon a spectacle, which, as he said, was present belore his eyes days afterwards, and haunted his sleep. We describe what he saw, as he told us, only saying that strange as the story may seem, full reliance can be placed upon his words There was not a bed or chair in the shed, but stretched upon the bare ground lay the body of a young ish looking woman, who had evi dently just died. Her form was a most a perfect skeleton, yet the face was that of a refined and beautiful woman. On her breast lay an in fant of about six months old, with its mouth to the breast of its mother, and dead. And sitting up in a cor ner of the shed, and staring the trav eler in the face with glazed eyes, was what he thought another corpse, but life was yet in it. lhe figure was that of a girl apparently about ten years old. She could not rise to her feet, and'yet she was not sick. She was literally dying of starvation. By the side of the woman, clasping her hand, lay a man covered with blood and apparently in a dying state. Add to this, the filth of the room and the half naked condition of the sufferers, and we wonder not that the scene long haunted the ob server. He went in. i he girl could not speak, but the man cried 'water,' in a feeble voice, and pointed to the girl as if to attract the stranger's at tention to her. The traveler, Air, J., of Cincinnati, hastened awav, tak ing with him a tin pan, and says he never ran harder in his life than he did about half a mile to a small stream he had passed. On his return, he found the man still alive, and gave him water which he eagerly drank. He could then speak in a whisper. He pointed to the girl and said 'she s starving.' Mr. J. gave the girl some water, which aopeared to revive her, and she tried to talk, but could not. With much difficulty he learned from the man that there was a house about a mile distant, to which he hurried. On his arrival there, he found only a negro. While getting some provisions and hastening back with the man, the latter informed him that the cholera had broken out in that neighborhood, and the family owning him had left for the time be ing. He said the little girl of the shed had daily made her appearance there for provisions until about three days back that the man and wo man had been sick lor a long time. &c. On their return, the man was dying, and lived but ao hour. The little girl was revived by lood, and before they took her away, oould talk. She said she had been sick her self, and could not walk to the house for food, and that her mother died the day previous, and the baby about the same time and that her father had tried to kill himself when they died. It was horrid. The child was taken to the house, and the rest of the unfortunate family buried. The child afterwards stated her name was Mary Williams, and Mr. J. thought, from what he could gath- er,the family had lived in N. Albany, but in what New Albany he could not ascertain, more than as the child said, there were a great many houses there, and it was evidently New Albany, N. York. The negro said the family had been there several weeks, and came directly alter his master had left. As there was not a family in the neighborhood, the person also having gone whom Mr. J. wished to see, the girl, who was sick and exhausted, was left with the negro, who promised faithfully to at tend to her. Yet there were but lit tle hopes of her recovery. It has never been our misfortune to hear a more horrible tale of leality than this. Evant. Jour.

The two most important Dins mat nave yet passed the Senate will not be taken up in the House and they will not pass there with out a severe struggle and a good deal of idle debate. The extreme south ern men will oppose the Calilorni: bill, and do everything in their pow er to prevent its passage, but it is generally conceded in the House that it will go through. There is more doubt about the sue cess of the still more important meas ure the Texas Boundary bill. This will meet with strong opposition from the North as well as the South. The bill providing a territorial government lor New Mexico, will j undoubtedly pass the Senate thi weeg.. i nere is an accumulation o mi a other important business, in the Committee rooms, that imperatively demands immediate attention. If the House pass the Senate bill providing lor a Board of Accounts, it will re lieve both houses of the most trouble some and the most neglected branch of their duties the adjustment of claims against government They cannot fail to take up the bill and pass it at as early a dar as possible, for they almost hourly hear its necessity impressed upon them, by the urgent importunities of im patient claimants, many ol whom have passed session alter session here, impoverishing themselves and their mends by the heavy expense, besides suffering the tortures of hoie delayed, in begging Congress and the departments to pay claims that are just and undoubted, but to which Congress 'have not time to attend.' As business in the committee rooms has heretofore been conduct ed, a shrewd claimant, with monev sufficient to give a few dimes, and employ two or three lobby agents. is quite as likely to get a Mancy' or unjust claim allowed as an honest one. Hy es'aoisning a wen organ n .lata 11 ized Board of Commissioners for the settlement of all claims against gov ernment, more individual suffering will be relieved and prevented, than in the admission of California, or in the extension of a territorial govern ment over Deseret. Another measure ye neglected, n the hands of Congress, to which the present ruinous and sinking con ditionof our manufacturing interests everywhere must have called their attention, is a protective tariff. If we may judge from the tone of the public press in all sections, the coun try will expect that Congress before they adjourn, shall extend some suf ficient and adequate protection over the great and most important re sources of the country. Mr. Casev of Pennsylvania, a few days since made a sound, practical speech upon the subject, and in the course o! his remarks made a startling report of the condition or the iron manufacto ries in Pennsylvania. He had tak en great care that his statistics hould be accurate and reliable. It appears that since 1790, there have been, in Pennsylvania in the iron usiness. 177 failures, and 124 of these have taken place since 1846! n IS49, at the close ol the year. there were 149 furnaces out of 293, that were out of blast, and many more have stopped since. At the closn of the present year, Bbout 100 will be out of employ. A decrease of 49$ per cent, in three years, of pig metal, and 3J per cent, in two ears ol bar metal. In 1S47 there was 40,966 tons of railroad iron manufactured, and in 349 only 18,973; a decrease of 21,- 993 tons, or 54 per centJ If we en quire into the present state of the manutacturing interests m mew England we shall see quite a sad spectacle.

Wonderful Thieves. to to An Englishman who was lately traveling on the Mississippi river told some rather tough stories about the London thieves. A Cincinnati chap named Case, heard these narra tives with a silent but expressive humph! and then remarked that ho thought the Western thieves beat the London operators all hollow.' "How so?" inquired the English man, with surprise. "Pray, sir, have you lived much in the West?" "Not a great deal. I undertook to set up a business at the Desmoines Rapids a while ago. but the rascall people stole nearly everything 1 had. and finally a Welch miner ran off with my wife." "Good Godfsaid the Englishman. "And you never have found her?" " ever to this day. But that was not the worst of it." -Worst. Why what could be worse than stealing a man's wife?" "Mealing his children, 1 should say," said the implicable Case. "Children!" Yes; a nigger woman who hadn't any of her own, abducted my youn gest daughter, and sloped and jined ineingtns. w "Great heaven! And did vou see her do it?" "See hert Yes, and she hadn't ten rods the start of me; but she plunged into the lake and swam off like a duck, and there wasn't a canoa to follow her with." The Englishman laid back in his chair and called for another mug of aff-an-aff, while Case smoked his ci gar and credulous friend at the same time, most remorselessly. "I I shan't go any further West think? at length observed the ex cited John Bull. "I should not advise any one to go," said Case quietly. "My brother ones i ved there, but he had to leave, al though his business was the best ia the country." "What business was he in prayr "Lumbering had a saw mill." "And they stole his lumber?" "Yes, and his saw logs, too," "Saw logs!" "Yes. Whole dozens ol finet black walnut logs were carried off in a single nightl" "Is it possible?" "True, upon my honor, sir. He tried every way to prevent it; had had men hired to watch his logs, but it was all of no use. They would whip 'em away as easily as if there had been nobody there. They would steal them out of the river, out of the cove, and even out tha mill ways." "Good Gracious!" "Just to give you an idea how they can steal out there," continued Case, sending a sly wink at the lis tening company, "just to give yoo an idea did you ever work in a saw mill?" "Never." "Well, my brother, one day bought an allfired fine black walnut log four feet three al the butt and not a knot in it. He was determirr- ed to keep that log, any how, and hired two Scotchmen to watch it all niaht. Well, they took a small demijohn of whiskey with them, snaked the log up the side hill above the mill, and built a fire, and then sot down on the log to play keerds just to keep awake you see. 'Twas a monstrous big log bark two in ches thick. Well, as I was saying, thev played keerds and drank whis key all night, and as it began to grow light, went to sleep, a straddle the log. About a minute after day light, George went over to the mill to see how they were getting on, and the log watgonef" "And they setting on itf ' "Setting on the Bark. The thieves had drove an iron wedge into the hint end. which Dinted down hill, and hitched a voke of oxen on, pull ed it right out," leaving the shell and the Scotchers setting a euaaam of it fast asleep P The Englishman here rose, arop ped his cigar-stump into the spittoon, and looking at his watch, said he thought he would go on deck and see how far we'd be down the river be fore morning. Raisixo Pigs. There Is a good deal said in Agricultural works in relation to raising pigs, but the Mem phis Enquirer gives the following singular item in relation to the rais ing of a thousand pigs of lead, sunk in the Ohio river twenty years ago: "One thousand pigs of lead were recently recovered from the wreck of the steamer Neptune, which was sunk at the mouth of the Ohio river in the year 1830, twenty years ago. This lead was taken to New Orleans in the steamer Mohawk a few days since.
