I love the ladies, every one The laughing ripe branerte, Those dark-eyed daughters of the sun, With tresses black as jet. What raptures in their glances glow! Rich tints their cheeks discloses, And in the little dimples there Young smiling Love reposes. I love the ladies, every one The blonds so soft and fdr, With looks so mild and languishing, ' And bright and golden hair. How lovely are their sylph-like forms, Their alabaster hue. And blushes far more beautiful Than rose-buds bathed in dew. 1 love the ladies, every one E'en those whose graceless forms Are rugged as the oak that's borne A hundred winter's sorms. The young, the old. the stout, the thin, The short as well as tall, Widows and wives, matrons and maids, - Oh! yes, I love them all. I love the ladies, every one None but a wretch would flout 'era; This world would be a lonely place If we were left without 'em. But lighted by a woman's smile, " Away all gloom is driven, 'And the most humble home appears . ' Almost a little heaven. I love the ladies, every one They're angels all God bless 'em! And what can greater pleasure give Than to comfort and caress 'emt I call myself a temperance man, So I'll drink their health in water Here's to the mothers, one and all, , And every mother's daughter. in Later from the Plains. - The St. Louis Republican of the 4th. publishes the following from Fort Laramie, Aug. 26th. The tide of emigration is on its last ebb. For some time past the pil grim faces have been 'few and far between, and now only the few the persons who pass here en route to California and Oregan registered their names. At that rate, the num ber of persons would equal about fifty-five thousand, wagons, &c, in due proportion, and thus may we only form any fair or definite idea of the . actual amount of this year's pilgrim age.

"No, Julia, I expeet to be at home to-night. I sent a ncte to Mary, vesterdav. declining her invitation." "Not going! i am surprised to hear you say so; it will not be a very gay party, and there will be no dancing. What are your reasons I for staying away" "I have several." replied Fannv. smiling. "Will you have the most important first or last?" 1 do not care which, only tell me." Well, then, to begin with the most trivial, perhaps, somewhat selfish reasons, I seldom enjoy eve- ning companies. I cannot be ani- mated and interested in con versa- tion about 'nothing;' I am not bril- liant, and so cannot entertain the company with bright and wittv speeches, and, therefore, neither re- ceive nor give pleasure."

She is a particu lar friend of mine, and 1 thought I ought to go; but Mary Wright is on ly an acquaintance." "Well, I do not know what vou can find so agreeable in an evening at home," said Julia, shrugging up her shoulders; "I think them exceeding- Iv tiresome.

So saying she rose, and gathering folds of a rich shawl around her "Yes, Mr. Lawrence will certain- be there, foi he is Mary Wright's cousin," she said to herself; and then thoughts reverted to a very pleasant evening she had passed a weeks previous with the above sleep over it.

What, prefer the admiration of one who is almost a stranger to me," she thought, "to the aociety and comlort -of those who a as er, an ny, he her in or was ' have claims upon me that I can nev er discharge! No no; my dear pa rents shall, never want a cheerful companion while their daoghter goes forth to scenes of gayety to en joy the attentions of any gentleman. Here in my own home will I be sought or nowhere!" Within that same pleasant appartment a family group was gathered that eve ning, needing no artist's skill to render it lovely to a discerning eye. in a large rocking-chair by the fire, in a richly embroidered wrapper and slippers, sat an elderly gentleman a little past the prime of life. The long silken locks of his white hair, put back from hit brow, revealed a broad, intellectual forehead, that, with fine, dark eyes, undimmed even by the cares and sorrows of many years, and the benevolent expression that lingered round his mouth, made his face striking and attractive. Near him sat a lady, on whose mild and faded, yet still lovely face, his gaze often rested. bhe was knitting with the ease and rapid ity so habitual to elderly females, while her eve wandered from one loved face to another, oAen resting attentively on the bright and beautiful countenance of a young girl, who read aloud from a volume that lay on the table beside her. Her sweet, clear voice was the only sound to be heard in the silent apart ment, save now and then the heavy breathing of a pet dog that slept at the foot of his master. Sh3 sometimes paused to ask questions that elicited in formation from her father, or to make a pertinent or arch remark, that called forth a smile of gratified pride and ap proval from her listeners. Their only sou was absent, nor did he return at his usual hour that evening: As it grew late, Fanny prevailed upon her parents to retire, and remained alone to wait for him. She drew the table hearer to ths fire, and opening a small volume, was soon absorbed in its sacred contents. gleaning from iis holy pages the hope of that better and more enduring inheri tance, of which her own sweet home was faint yet beautiful type. When her broiher entered he seemed surprised and grieved to find her there. One glance at his trou bled face was sufficient to awaken the anxious fears of his sister. Her affectionate inquiries he appeared at first unwilling to answer, but long ing for the gentle and cheering sym pathy of ons in whose judgement and discretion he had confidence, he yielded at length, and unfolded the anxious cares that had oppressed him during the day. He had recently entered into business for himseK, and the harassed state of commercial affairs, found many difficulties to per plex him. Sweetly did Fanny cheer the drooping spirits of her depressed companion, and it was with a heart lightened of half its burden by the tender sympathy of woman, that he bade her affectionate! v "good-night." a O C When Julia Lawton laid her head upon her pillow that night, it wa with painful and conflicting emotions busy at her heart. Her cousin's words had been vividly recalled to her mind when, attired for the party, she entered the parlour in which her parents sat, to leave a message for her eldest brother, Edward. "What going out again, Julia?" said her father in a repioachful tone, he lay stretched upon the sofa, where he had thrown himself, com plaining of indisposition. Her moth too, looked depressed; and her sad locks and her father s words haunted her all the evening. She had been dbject of much attention to an admiring and envying throng, but had experienced no real enjoyment. and was much disappointed and chagrined by the manner ol Charles Lawrence, lie had inquired for Fan and hearing that she was not ex pected to be present, after a few min utes conversation with Julia, had eft her to be entertained by others, and had spent the remainder of the evening in an animated discussion with a plain matronly lady, evident ly many years his .senior. Julia's brother, too, had complain ed of the long walk which he had ta ken to be her escort, declaring that was heartily tired of going out to party, alter being detained as be often was until a late hour at the of fice.'! Julia had never tried to be in teresting in his pursuits, or yielded wishes to his even when they in terfered with his comfort, or sought any way to make herself, a com panion to her brother, and, of course, there was no congeniality of thought feeling between them.. He looked upon her as a weak, capricious wo man, whom, as being his sister, he obliged to escort to . parties and places of fashionable amusement, but whose presence, in the desirable event of her marriage, would not be missed from the family circle, whose absence: weuld. take no brightness from the domestic hearth.- - y ' ' i r , .. .

The rain that fell in tor rents was scarcely heard by the in mates of that noble room, where eve ry article that wealth and taste could procure shone in unwonted solen dour in the brilliant gas light. The lady, wnose youth and beauty fitted ner to grace so lair a scene, sat in her rich sewing-chair carelessly, and as if her object was pass iwav time, emDroidenng the cover for an ottoman, while her husband, half- reclining in a large rockinir-chair. seemed absorbed in the paper he held iu nis nand. ---w, .ivui j oum ilia niiOf after an interval of silence, "have you i a. . uoi nnisned reading that paper yet "Not yet, Julia," he replied, with a smile; "it contains a most noble speech of our great statesman, Uanie Webster. I wish you would let me read it to vou. Everv true Ameri can heart must be stirred by its patri otic sentiments. I am sure you will be interested in it if vou will only listen." "Oh, no; indeed I should not. I nev er could bear politics, I used to get so tired of hearing father and Edward dis cuss speeches and laws and Congress proceedings. Do not mention the sub ject. Why do you not read those tire some papers at your office?" "I have not time, Julia. I conld not do justice to such an address as this amid all the interruptions of business hours." ' "But this is the only time you have at home." "We are so often out or have compa ny, Julia, that the few evenings we are alone I feel as if I must spend in grati fying my taste for reading and in acqui ring the knowledge my position in life requires. You know I am always wil ling to share my pursuits with you, I love to read aloud to an interested lis tener." "Which I never can be, Henry, while you select such tiresome and dry books," said bis wife half pettishly. . ; "Dry! I am sure jou cannot call any of Stephen's works dry! Everyone thinks them extremly interesting, and they are the only books I have attempt ed to read to you this winter." I do not like books of travel; I nev er did Nor works o' biography, either. rou know I have tried to interest y-u them." Julia waa silent; she could not but acknowledge the justice of her hus band's remarks. It was true that, never from their marriage, almost a year be fore, had she made the least effort to be interested in his pursuits. He had a taste for books, imbibed in early life, before he entered into business, and a love of domestic quiet that, with encour agement from her, would have made him prize home above all other spots, and rendered him a bright example of an intelligent and enterprising merchant; but in vain had he sought to interest his wife in these quiet, home pleasures in which he delighled. History, travels, the biography of the good and great, and even selections from the lighter reading the day, were alike distasteful to her, and Henry Norns soon found that he need hope for no sympathy on these sub jects from the partner of his life. She made no attempt to be a companion to him, and though to please her he accom panied her often to scenes of amuse ment and gayety, she never rewarded self-denial by studying his wishes tastes. In society she was the life an admiring throng, but at home, dull, peevish and unentertaining, and ere a year of his wedding life passed away, lond dreams ol domestic bliss had vanished. "Julia," tie said, alter the pause that followed his last remark, "here a beautiful, an almost sublime pas sage, which 1 am sure you will ad mire. For my sake, listen to it." He explained to her the circum stances under which ths address had been delivered, and then proceed to read an extract from it. A flush of pride and pleasure stole over his face, his tone grew almost eloquent. looked up as he finished.

At the sound of his footsteps, an inner door was quickly opened. .."Iam afraid you are very 'wet, Charles." said a sweet and gentle voice. " . . r - .

Though the room was not large, and its simple furniture bore no evidence of wealth nothing that could contribute to the comfort of its occupants was want- ing. Beside a centre-table, on which lay soma newspapers and a few choice volumes of literature, an easy chair had been placed, the slippers on the carpet before it showing for whose use it had been destined This was, indeed, just such a cheerful. quiet little apartment as the heart of one wearied with the toil and bustle of a day passed in the exciting haunts ot business would desire, bo, at least, thought Charles Lawrence, as he took the seal assigned him, and looked with fond and confiding affec- non on nis gentle and loving com panion. And now for Webster's speech. Fanny," he said, after some time passed in conversation. Fanny smiled approvingly, and handing him the evening paper, took some sewing from a little work-basket on the table beside her. As he read aloud in an animated tone, she ofteu paused in her employment and istened with absorbed attention, un til at length, letting it fall, she rested her head on one hand and sat motion ess, her dark eyes fixed on the rea er and her sweet face mantled with the rich glow of excited feeling.

"Fanny," said Mr. Lawrence, as they sat by the fire before retiring for the night, "1 met Henry Norris in Chestnut street this evening, as 1 was returning from Mr. Gibson's. Where could he have been going in all this storm? He passed me so quickly that I bad not time to ask him." "I do not know, Charles) but I am afraid," replied his wife, with a sigh, "that he does not much enjoy an evening at home."

Thev looked upon her as an1 inferior, and she made no effort to interest herself in their pursuits or to entertaining and agreeable at home. She was made to feel that the chief object of her education was fit her to appear to advantage in society, and to make a 'good match,' the world calls it. Her tastes and pleasures all led her from her own fireside, and marriage has effected no alteration in them. Her habits and feelings roust be entirely changed be fore she can make a cheerful and in teresting home companion. I do, in deed, pity while I blame her, for her faults t.re, in a great measure, the ef fects of education.;. She is accom plished, intelligent, and really affec tionate, but does not understand her domestic duties; and . though con scious to a certain degree ol her de fects in this respect, has no energy to overcome them."- "Harrv was dazzled by her beauty graceful manners, said Mr. Lawrence.

Mr. Clay at Home. On Wednesday morning last, a telegraphic dispatch was received from Maysville, announcing the fact that Mr. Clav had arrived in thai riir and that he was expected to reach Ashland that evening. The news spread through the city with almost the same rapidity that the telegraphic wires had brought it from Maysville. and there was a universal determina tion, short as the time was, to extend him a public reception. Every one seemed to feel that such a manifests. tion of respect and gratitude was es pecially due to him at this time, when he was returning to his quiet abode after having performed almost superhuman labors during the recent arduous, pro tracted and at times gloomy session of Congress. It Was the noble promptings of generous hearts to a great benefactors who had so powerfully and effectively raised his arm to avert the threatened blow to our glorious Union; and the spontaneous enthusiasm created by the annunciation that Henry Clay was in a few hours to be in our midst could not be repressed. He arrived about 9 o'clock, amidst the firing of cannon, the ascent of rock ets, and the blaze of bonfires. He had chosen to come in the night to atoid all public demonstration, but, as he said, in substance, in the few remarks he made to the Vast concourse which greeted him on his arrival, the friendship of his neighbors was too vigilant for all his precautionary steps. vv hen he descended from bis carnage. three loud and long continued cheers went Up from the immense multitude who had gathered in front of the Phca nix Hotel.

In concluding, Mr. Clay said that he was glad to aee them all again and here he pointed . his finger towards Ashland in a manner so irresis tibly comic that for some time not a word could be heard from him. When silence was restored, he said that glad he Was to see them, there was an old lady about a mile and a half off. with whom he had lived for more than fifty years, whom he would rather aee than of them, and he retired amidst gen era!, loud and long continued cheering. Ve have seldom seen him in finer health or better spirits. And certainly have never known blm to return among us when his return produced so deep and intense emotion. It was no homagn to power no sycophantic adu. lation to the trappings of office, but the spontaneous tribute of respect and de votion to an aged patriot wfeose every pulsation seems to be for his country. Un J hursday, Mr. Clay visited the Fair, and another shout from the con gregated multitude attested the aflec- onate regard in w hich he is held by bis Lexington Observer. The Arctic Expedition.
