Something ever doth impress us With a souse of right or wrong; Something waltcth still to bless us, As we journey life along; Something view less whispers to us Words of hope and promise sure; Voices speak prophetic through us, Of a life that shall endure. There Is a silent, voiecles teacher,' Striving with the human will; i Unto each weak, earth-ixirn ere attiro Wisdom's letters doth instill; Heed them, better grow and wiser: They will soften life' hot fray ; Duty make your stern ndviser, Aim to reach the perfect day. Trust the hinh hopes that Impel us, Ami inspire our linn belief They uloiio can well foretell us, Uuinau works how frail anil brief; Trust the (iod that reigns above us, . Faithful to his precepts be, lie w ill gnidc. and guard, nnd love us, Through a blest eternity.

Sci in all things truth and beauty, ' Love nVrrlowhig from tlio skies; ' Exercising Faith and luty, Earth Would bo a paradise. BY NEAL BERNARD. Miscellaneous. Eloquent Extract—The Union of the Atlantic with the Pacific. Tiik magnillcent project of uniting the Atlantic Oe'eari With the Pnclllo, by rail road connection, and of accomplishing in a few hours ii journey across the breadth of the continent of North America, which for merly,, required months to effect, and of causing the commerce of the East to flow through tho gates of our principal cities, is we'll calculated, although n utilitarian scheme, to give the hue of poetry and ro mance to the speculations of those w ho aro engaged in forwarding- the great wttrk. The idea Is so splendid ami great that even our nuwt sober, and sedate statesmen, who in general confine themselves to prosaic facts and figures, will insensibly, in their allusions to it, use the most oratorical and splendid illustrations. When we contem plate the advantages nnd results that would flow from it, the changes that it would pro duce in all the groat enterprises of life, it Is not remarkable that it is a line theme for forensic displays. The classic and eloquent Keitt, a member of Congress from South Carolina, in a late speech at Charleston, at a railroad celebration, handled the subject as ably and as beautifully aa we have ever seen it done. He said : "The march of tho States is on ward and onward still nor can it pause until tho sun is right over our heads ; nor will ' tho edict of Destiny he met until the people of these regions are bidden to a mar riage feast grander than any spread on tho records of time. Tho Pa cific, vexed by storms, and restless upon his lonely, bachelor bfcd," for unnoted centuries, has sobbed to the rock-bound coast the story of his baffled love ; but American ge nius and American energy, like carrier-pigeons, are now bearing the sutor's gentle plea over, plain and mountain, over forest and city, arid they soon will carry back tho pligh ted maiden's vow of the blush ing Atlantic. - - ' ' .' Much have you of the South and "West already done, but much still remains for you to do.. The lordly Facific, like an awakened giant, is stopping forth to demand and wel come the bride he has already wooed and. won, and it is for you to solemnize, the magnificent lly men of the oseans with a' chain of iron ,Vibiesses.'( '.When you have done .this, , you will have laid your hands' upon the gates of the East, aofl the long procession 'of. the traded .will follow in ': your track way ttf seize 'and hold the -' golden keys,VThe;;.sIileiidjd ; commerce, which' erstwhile, enriched Thebes and, fttlmyrdj :Venice, . Genoa ,:and Holland, ind which now plants the grtfat commercial nervo of tho world on the Exchange in London, will 'comb to. you a bidden guest. Tho use of tropical productions is fast becoming a test of civiliza tion, nnd they arc rapidly elaborat ing themselves into tho very ele ments of national greatness nnd power. Great Britain sees thin, and hence she is pushing her con quests through ruined India, and treading over shattered thrones, to lay her hands upon tho sources of tropical wealth. Trance, too, has planted her Lillics upon tlio soil of Africa, and, stretching on to tho accomplishment of the samo end, is marching over liery deserts ami through the smoke of burning Arab villages. Nor does this great law of modem progress and civili zation stop ith these two powers. Nicholas, of Russia,' when in his midsoar of ambition when stretch ing to tho very sun, liko . - 'Tlio feathered king, ' On balanced wing,"'- . , , ho was struck down by. tho shaft of death, was gilding up tho loins of his huge empire, for ; a . mighty spring through jho gateway of VhW na, upon the possessions of Great Britain in ,tho East,' in order to grapplo. those -,vast regions to his already colossal empire, and re found his power and reyime upon tho wealth and commerco of the East. This great scheme precolates through tho minds of the .rulers of Russia. This race to tho tropics is ours, too. God, geography and na ture have combined to enablo us to outstrip nil our rivals ' in this high career of power and empire. Marry-the Atlantic to tho Pacific, ' and obey the mandate of destiny, and you will have your hands upon tho necessities and luxuries of tho world, while all tho arts and all tho trades, and all the sciences, will circlo in festive throngs around you." . ; A Good Rebuke. Tiik talented editor of the PcorlaXation al Democrat, handsomely rebukes a neigh boring Abolition editor in the following ; . "The Pantagraph, a disunion pa per published in Blooniington, anxiously enquires in regard to tho President's Pence Proclamation: 'Does this Presidential Proclam ation look to such a result? Aro we not on tho brink of another civil war?'" : No, sir, We are not on the brink of any such thing. The, coup de tat that your party intend to mako to get hold of tho Executivo power ot the nation, will bo so .suddenly squelched, that it cannot bo digni fied with the name of insurrection. We shall have no civil war, because those who attempt to innugurato it would hang as high as llaaman before the emeuto was twenty-four hours old." . Taken Aback. A handsome sleigh came dashing up to a swell mansion one day last winter, in line style, nnd, stopping, out sprang a sprucely dressed little fellow, who might have seen a dozen summers, but Who had the air of one who labors under the impression that his father is considerable his junior ia years nnd experience; Accosting a passing boy, probably a year or so older than him self, he haughtily exclaimed : , ' " Hero, boy, hold my horse 1" Tho boy stepped up, and, look ing at the animal, asked ; " Can one boy hold him ?" "Yes ;. certainly,". ".Well, hold him youjself, then," continued he, passing on, leaving our hero quite taken aback. Ah amusing dialogue lately occurred ia one of the American camps between a pri vate, who was' acting as sentinel near n hospital, and a general. On the approach of the latter, the former neglected to give the accustomed salute. ' The general then sharply asked : "Who stands guard hero?" : ' "A' chap : about my size," an swered the private. : " General-Vhat aro your duties here?" ;- ' 1 : "To allow tho sick to como out, and to keep the well in." ' : " Call your corporal." ! " You won't catch me doing that. I don't intend to stand here two hours longer than usual to please you.'? Tlio sentinel alluded hero to a rule which gives corporals the power when they are unnecessari ly called byi sentinels, to punish them by imposing ' on them two hours' extrrt duty.

It presents not n social sys tem, for thero is no real system in it but a vast and accidental hu man agglomeration, to which tho principles and laws ot self-government have no proper application." In these few lines is displayed tho intenso hostility o popular government, and free institutions which has cvp'r been tho disgusting characteristic of tho opposition, which, uiu.or different names, have fought tho Democracy of tho Uni ted Statos ever, since Ibo sulnnl inn of the Constitution. It is not al ways frank enough to admit tho fact, but tho views of its leaders and its general policy have ever been to take from tho manv llioir rights and bestow them upon the iow who aro to Do tno rulers while the masses aro to bo rovrrnri1.

Was Burns Happy at Home? Hut why not say that tlio thrco years ho lived at Elliesland wore all happy, as happiness goes in the world ? His wilo never had an hour's sickness, and was always cheerful as day, one of thoso "Sound, healthy children of the God of neaven,: , ..,-.' ; , , whoso very presence is positivo, pleasure,, whoso silent contented: nes's with her lot inspires .comfort into her husband's heart, when at times oppressed with a mortal hea viness that no words could lighten. Burns says, with gloomy grandeur, "Thero is a foggy atmosphoro na tive to my soul in tho hour of care which makes the dreary objects seem larger tluin life." He who suffers thus can not be relieved by any appliances save thoso that touch the heart the homelier the more sanative and none so sure, as a wife's affectionate ways, qui etly moving abouT; the house affairs, which, insignificant as they are in themselves, aro felt to bo little truthful realities that banish thoso monstrous phantoms, showing them to be but glooms and shadows.
