It was the first, the first sweet song, ' Of one who cared for me; I learned it from the lips of love When stars were on the sea. But the minstrel's hand is cold and mute, And silent is that lute, And the hallowed lips whence flowed that song, Are now forever mute.

Then touch again tbe silver lute, And sing that song once more, 'Twas sung to me by my beloved In happy days of yore. My Mother's Bible. BY G. P. MORRIS. This book is all that's left me now, Tears will unbidden start With faltering lip and throbbing brow, I press it to my heart. For many generations past, Here is our family tree; My mother's hands this bible clasped She, dying gave it me. Ah! well do I remember those Whose names these records bear; Who round the hearth-stone used to close. After the evening prayer, And speak of what these pages said, In tones my heart would thrill; . Though they are with the silent dead, Here they are living still! My father read this holy book To sisters, brothers dear. How calm was my poor mother's look, Who learned God's word to hear. Her angel face I see it yet! What thrilling memories come! Again that little group is met Within the walls of home! Thou truest friend man ever knew, Thy constancy I've tried, Where all were false I found thee true, My counsellor and guide; The mines of earth no treasures give, That could this volume buy, In teaching me the way to live, It taught me how to die! Fall op Spirit Rappers. The following bit of plain talk we find in the JV. T. Courier and Enquirer. "In Little York, Ohio, fifty-two fools, male, female, and juvenile, were lately rathered together, to consult the Spirits. AH passed off satisfactorily, till the gaping crowd asked the ghost of an old man who said he was not in heaven, if he was in the other place. Whereupon the floor gave way with a loud crash, and fools, mediums and all were thrown into the cellar. The ghost, of course, had to bear the blame of the accident.

It is one of the drawbacks to Patriarchal authority, that while absolute power in one's own family may be tempted with the best and kindest feelings, so long as it is con fined to the household, it is apt to indemnify itself upon strangers for the restraints of tbe borne circle. This is the only way of account ing for. the fact that Nicholas, Auto crat of all the Kussias, who is one of the kindest of rulers to his own subjects, is a mere tyrant where for eign nations are concerned. The following anecdotes of the Russian Czar, are from a recent pub lication by M. Jerrmann, who resi ded several years in St. Petersburg. Before quitting the subject of the architecture and public buildings of the Russian capital, Mr. Jerrmann gives a most interesting account of the burning of the Winter Palace in December, 1837. The court were at the Michael's theatre, where the! French company perform, when suddenly an aid-de-camp entered the imperial box and whispered to Prince YV olkonsky, one of the minis ters then present. The prince gave him orders, and continued to look quietly on at the performance. Half an hour later the aid de-camp re turned, and this time the Prince spoke to the Emperor, who rose, gave his arm to his wife, and conducted her to her carriage. The coachman received orders to drive to the Anitchkoff Palace instead of to the Winter Palace. The Emperor mounted a horse that was in wait ing for him, and galloped to the Win ter Palace. There was a terrible crowd and crushing in the streets; half St. Petersburgh was on foot; it was light as day, and flames were roaring up into tbe sky; the Winter Palace was on fire. When the Em peror got there the names were bursting through all the windows. The massive walls still stood firm, as did the gigantic statues that sur mounted them, and which passed blackened but uninjured through that terrible night; but the whole in terior of the palace, with its costly pictures end decorations, was evi dently doomed. 1 he Emperor galloped round the building to look after his sentries. The precaution was not superfluous; on the western sice two soldiers were near falling victims to the fire; the general confusion, those whose duty it was, had forgotten to relieve them, and there they stood, notwith standing the terrible heat, musket on shoulder and resigned to their fate The Emperor relieved them himself, and passed forward into the palace; with a glance he saw that the whole would soon fall in, and he hastened into the rooms where the danger seemed greatest, to call out the men who were saving the furniture. At his command everybody fled from the palace, with the exception of four workmen who had received orders to save an enormous mirror, and who could not leave the place with out it. The Emperor drew his sword, and with one blow of the hilt shivered the glass. Scarcely had the last man passed the thresh old, when the room lell in with a terrible crash. Having satisfied him self that no lives were in danger, Nicholas hurried to the Empress at the Anitchkoff Palace. The Empress had recovered from her first alarm. She was tired, and asked with some uneasiness, where she was to pass the night. Her secretary, the privy-councillor Cham beau, begged permission to conduct her to the sleeping room that had been hastily prepared for her. There she found, to her great as tonishment, through the- delicate attention of an attached servant her sleeping apartment out of the Winter Palace, with its thousand little comforts and conveniences; everything in the same place and order as if it had remained untouched since the last time she dressed her self. When the fire had reached that wing of the palace and it spread with tremendous rapidity Chambeau hastened to the boudoir with a dozen servants and muschiks. "AH here belongs to the Empress!" cried; "not a thing must be broken!" and in aprons, baskets, and pockets were carried away all those thousand and one nick-nacks clocks, vases, boxes and ornaments wanting which a boudoir could not be complete. Without the slightest injury they were conveyed through the flames, and for half a league through the heaving throng that filled the streets; and when Chambeau had arranged everything it was in its former place, the lo cality alone was changed; all thirlgs seemed to stand where they had been left not a riband was crumbled. nor a sheet of paper soiled. I doubt there being many masters In Germa- it to his ny who' are so well and quickly served, The next day the Emperor re turned to the scene of destruction Within the walls the fire still raged. For some time he gazed mournfully at the blackened remnants of one of the chief ornaments of his capital. At last he raised, his head passed his hand over his brow, and said cheer fully "This day vear I will sleep in my room in the winter raiace. vno undertakes the building?" For a moment all recoiled before an un dertaking that seemed impossible. Then Gen. Klenmichael, an aid-decamp of the Emperor, stepped for ward and said, "I willr "And the building is to be complete in a year?" asked Nicholas. "Yes sire." "'Tis good! Now set to work!" An hour later the still burning nuns were being cleared away. The fire was in" December, 1837; bv December, 1838, the palace was rebuilt. Three months afterwards it was occupied by the court. Klen michael kept his word but at a heavy price, a price that could be paid only in Russia, for it was at the cost of human life as well as ol the mountains of gold. Under the Em press Elizabeth, the palace had taken eight years to build; Klenmichael completed it in one. True i! is that almost the whole of the masonry resisted the fire, but the interior had to be reconstructed; and what a task that was! The work went on day and night; festivals were un heeded; the seasons themselves were overcome. lo accelerate the work, the building was kept at the exces sive temperature of 24 lo 28 degs. Keaumur. Many workmen sank under the heat, and were carried I out dead or dying; a painter, who was decorating a ceiling, fell from his ladder struck wilh apoplexy. Neither monev, health nor life was spared.. The Emperor, who at the time of the conflagration had risked his own life to save others, knew nothing of the means employed to carry out his will In December of the following vear, says Mr. Jerrmann, and in proud consciousness of his power the Emperor entered the resusrita ted' palace, and rejoiced over his work. The whole was constructed on the previous plan, but with some improvements and many embellish ments. With the Empress on his arm and followed by his family, he traversed the apartments ol this immense building, completed in one year s time, by the labor ol thou sands of men. He reached the sa loon of St. George, the largest and most beautiful of all, and the royal la mil v remained there longer than any where else, examining the costly gold mouldings of the ceiling, the five colossal bronze chandaliers, and the beautiful relievo over the throne, representing St. George slaying the dragon. The Empress was tired, and would have sat down, (the patron spirit of Russia prevented her,) as yet there was no lurniture in the hall, so she leaned upon the Emperor's arm and walked into the next room, followed by the entire retinue. The last of these had scarcely passed through the door when a thundering crash resounded through the palace, which trembled to its very foundations, and the air was darkened by the clouds of dust. The timbers of the ceiling of the sa loon St. George had yielded to the weight of the chandeliers, and the whole had fallen in, crushing every thing beneath its enormous mass. The saloon, so brilliant a moment before, was a heap of ruins. The splendid palace was again partly destroyed, but the genius ol Kussia watched over her destiny the im perial family was saved. Even the smallest glimpses of the private character and habits ol so remarkable a man as Nicholas of Russia, cannot but have their interest. The chapter entitled the "Imperial Family," comprises several pleasing traits of bon homme and kindly feei ng, in the Emperor. He considers himself as the first servant of the state, and likes to make those around him observe this. If a partr of pleasure is "proposed, "he will join if the service permits." To a favored but weary official, who asked retire on a pension, he replied "So long as I serve, you also, I hope, will not refuse your services to your country. The days he passes in his country palace of Peterhof are his days of relaxation from this "servicft." Every hour of them is spent in the bosom of his family. Invested with crown and scepter, he inspires re spect and admiration; behold him in domestic circle, and one cannot help loving him. At Peterhof I nftn mt ih Emnarnr wlkinr aiono ja the park and gardens. of ty-two to is the the " . ' J There he puts himself at ease; lays aside sword, uniform and epaulets, and rambles about in a surtout and forage cap. In his capital, when be is "on service," he never appears otherwise than in uniform; even in the coldest weather be wears only a cloth cloak, like any other 'officer. I never saw him in a fur coat, nor do I believe that he has one. In the metropolis his appearance is quite unassuming; he walks about the Newsky unattended, and his pres ence is only to be noticed by the joy- lul movement ol the crowd. None are allowed to address him; and although it were most agreeable to him, if he could with propriety e le t unnoticed, yet he exacts due re- spect from those by whom he knows that he is recognized. He once stopped opposite to two young men belonging to one of the imperial schools, who were staring him in the face, and asked why they did not sa lute him. One of them maintained a I terrified silence; the other plucked up courage and replied: "We do not know you!" ""No matter," replied the Emperor; "you see that I wear a general's uni form; go, both of you to the Winter Palace, and report yourselves to the guard as under arrest. There you will find out who I am and will know it for the future. With throbbing hearts the young men obeyed orders, and augured little good from the unfriendly re ception of the officer on guard. The guard had their dinner; nobody heeded the prisoners. Several hours passedtand still they we-e kept fast ing. i ney naa just received a naran refusal to their humble petition to be allowed to send out for a loaf, when one of the imperial servants entered with a dinner from the Emperor's table, and a bottle of champagne. For that day, he tcld them, they were the guests of the Emperor, who requested them to drink his health, and not to forget in future to salute when they met him, as he could not afford to invite them to dinner every day.

A correspondent of the "Household Words," London, in an article enti tied "A Prison Scene in Munich," thus exhibits the impossibility of al ways judging correctly by appear ance: The number of female prisoners is very small in comparison with the men. At one particular washing tub stood four women. Our conduc tor spoke to one of them, this being a sign for us to notice them. Two looked up, and fairly beamed with smiles; one, a tall and very hand some young girl, continued to wash awtfy with downcast eyes. I felt a sort of delicacy in staring al her, her looks were so conscious and modest. A fourth, a fat, ill-looking old wo man, also never looked at the visi tors. The two who had smiled had remarkably agreeable faces; one, with features, and a very mild ex pression; the other, a small woman, and though with bloom on her cheeks, a certain sad, anxious expres-' sion about her eyes and mouth. Of which of these women were we to!uP u f.-f,,! tu on. y one who looked evil was the! fat old woman. As soon as we were in the court our conductor said, "Now, what do you say about those women?" "Three out of the four," we remark ed, "are the only agreeable faces we have seen in the prison; and judging from this momentary glance at their countenances, we should say, could U. f ' much crime; perhaps may be so; that tall young girl, however, is not only handsome, but gentlelooking." "That tall young g'rrl," replied our guide, "was the one who, a year or two ago, murdered her fellow-servant, and culling up the body, bu ried it in the garden; the little wo man next to her, some two years since, murdered her husband; and the handsome, kind, motherly-looking woman who stood next, destroyed her child of seven vears old. The fat woman is in only for slight of fence!" So much for our judgment physiognomy. Fashionable Call.

Seriocs Thought. Ought not per sons to thoroughly instil into the minds their children, the great sin of the in termarriage of relatives? It certainly a sin, else why is it followed by evil results? Young ladies often thought lessly encourage their male cousins, by receiving attentions from them in some thing more than a cousinly way; love of conquest sometimes leads to sad results, there is nothing sadder to the mind, the spectacle of a marriage cere mony where cousins are to be wedded. have known several such unions to terminate unhappily, or where hearts were in unison, blighting disease, or terrible deformity, have marked either parents or children.

Previous to my arrival there, I had many accounts of this place, and expected to see quite a city, but was much disappointed when our ship rounded to in nuite a small bay, and my attention was called by the Captain to a little col lection of some dozen houses, located on the side of a steep forming the bank of the river, and told by him, "that is Astoria!" Something more than a year has passed away since that time, however, and the town has improved rapidly. Quite a flourish ing trade is now carried on there. and it is in fact a place of more im portance and business than its first appearance would denote. The Co lumbia here, is from four to eight miles in width, and the water pure and cool. Traveling up the river a- ooui ninety mnes, we come to the twenty miles, we arrive at fort land.! situated on the southwest bank ot the river, and at present the head of ship navigation on this stream. It con tains a population of about 1,000 A lively trade with the interior is car ried on from this point, and many improvements of a suitable character are already made, and more in pro gress. There is now in operation at this place, two steam saw mills, and one steam flouring mill. Progres sing up the river about four miles, the next we find is Milwaukee, on the left bank of the river, with a popula tion of some three or four hundred, and supported by its lumber trade. It has a very good water power, and makes and exports a large quantity of lumber annually. Six miles fur ther up the river we come to the Falls of the Willamette, where Ore gon City is situated, between two very high banks of the river. It con tains a population ol 1,000, or per haps, 1,200. Its water power is, per haps, unsurpassed by any other in the world, and it can be used on both sides of the river. This place is prob ably better known abroad than any other of our young cities, owing to the fact that it has hitherto been the place at which the Legislature was accustomed to hold its sessions. Its advantages must eventually make it town ot great manulacturing im portance, and when the resources of the country are developed, it will oc copy the first position among the manufacturing towns of this country. There are at present two flouring mills, and several saw mills in opera tion, and more in cootemylation. Cor. Mo. Rep. Tub Winter i.v Europe.

According advices from the north, a milder season has not been experienced even as far as Norway, since the commencement of the century. ! Phil Ledger. We have noted this fact for years, that when the winter is severe in this country it is certain to be corres pondingly mild in Europe, and vice versa. Uur winter has been almost unprecedentally cold, while in Eu rope, even in the region of Norway, has been surprisingly warm. Albany (N. Y.) Register. A Queer Senator.

Ten persons are confined in prison New xort city, cnargea with murder. for Cross of the Grder of the Legion of Honor. The form of the decoration of th members of the Legion of Honor is, by a recent decree of Louis Napole on, re-established according to the style adopted by (he Emperor. This is one of those significant steps which have recently foreshadowed the ap proaching restoration of the Empire. The Order of the Legion of Honor was established by Napoleon when First Consul. All order of nobility after the manner of tbe old regime hav ing been abolished under the Revolu tion, the Institution of the Order of the Legion of Honor was a political device of the First Consul to avail himse'f of the national fondness for distinctions without incurring tbe odium of an at tempted revival of the old aristocratical orders. The prestige of the new order would be entire'y his own; his name as its founder would be associated with it; the honors it conferred would de derived from him; yet to make it also national and honorable as a badge of merit It was declared to be instituted 'to recompense civil and military services." The form of the decoration, as fixed oy Napoleon when tmperor. is tUus picribed by a decree of 1804: no aecoranon oi me members oi the Legion of f Ionor shall consist of i alar of six double rays. The centre of the star surrounded with a wreath ofoak and laurel, shall present on one side the head of the Emperor, with this legend, "Napoleon, Empereur Us Francais," and on the other, the French eagle, hold ing a thunderbolt, with this legend, Hon er el Patrie. The decoration shall bft enameled with white. It shall be of gold for the Grand Officers, Command ants and Officers, and of silver for the Legionaries. It shall be worn suspen ded at one of th button holes of the coat, attached to a red watered ribbon. Offi cers shall add a rosette to the ribbon Commandants shall wear it saltire-wlse, hanging bv a ribbon placed around the neck- The Grand Officers shall wear it suspended by a grand cordon of tha samo color, passing as a shou'der-belt from right to left over the breast. Upon the restoration of Louis XVIII who did not venture upon abolishing the order, the form of the decoration was changed so as to correspond with the associations of the House of Bourbon; and the name of Henry IV, the founder of that House, was substituted for thatjof Napoleon. Under Louis Phillippe the order underwent other modifications. The lilies of the old style were made to give war to the tri colored flag, whereby the citizen King whl'e retaining the em blazonry of the Bourbons and the name of Henry ofNavarre, sought at the same time to derive benefit by connecting therewith the military emblem of the Empire, with the memories of the victo ries that had gken it splendor. J Tie inscn nlion of "JSapoleon, Em pereur les Franeais" with the eagle and the thunderbolt, now restored by Louis Napoleon, re-establishes the or der as an institution of the imperial epoch, and the transfer of ideas from tha uncle to the nephew in an east order of association may be regarded as a conse quence contemplated by the decree of re establishment. Bait. Amer. MvsrERT Explained. Much curios ity has been excited in some of the East ern States, by the appearance of tracks the snow, unlike those of any known creature. An ornithologist, writing to the Providence Herald, says that, du ring this remarkably cold winter, unu sual numbers of birds, whose home is the north, have been driven southward into more hospitable regions. Amongst the largest of these occasional visitors are the cinereous, or great gray owl (the largest of the kind in this country ) and the snowy owl. The former is very rarely seen; though i has been, in a few instances, as far south as Massachusetts. The foot-prints of the latter, which are less frequently met with, correspond with mysterious tracks referred to. and it thought that a flock of them may have passed through Massachusetts and across Rhode Island in November, and may have returned in February, according to their usual period of migration to and from the South. . Localities op Heaten and Hell. Some weeks ago, Dr. Porter, of the Cumberland Presbyterian church in this city, in the course of a series of eloquent astronomical nrmom, preached a discourse of the "locality heaven, astronomically consid ered, and located that happy place the centre of our solar system in the sun. Last Sunday evening he discoursed to one of the largest audi ences we have ever seen in Memphis, the "locality of hell," and Axed abode of the damned outside of solar and astral system, in the "outer darkness," beyond the light of sun and stars, where the planets, comets, and lost world, which have violated the great laws of their exis tence, darkle forever on their return less course through eternal space.
