C7e, The following lines are now eWerally now g known to be from the pen of Dr. J. Addison Alexander. It is one of those productions of genius which neter die: , . There is a time, we know not when, A point we know not where, That marks the destiny of men To glory or despair. There is a line by us unseen, That crosses erery path ; The hidden boundary between God's patience and his wrath. To pans that limit is to die, To die as if by stealth; It docs not quench the beaming eye, Or pale the glow of health. The conscience may be still at ease, The spirits light and gay ; That which is pleasing still may please, And care be thrust away. But on that forehead God has set, Indelibly a mark ; Unseen by man, for man as yet -j. Is bliud and in the dark. . And ret lh doomed man's path below, lie did not, dues not, will not know, Or feel that he is doomed. ' He knows, he feels that all Is'welT, " And every fear is calmed ; ' ' ' He lives, he dies, he wakes in hell, Not only doomed, but damued. O ! where is this mysterious bourne, Dy which our path is cronsed ; Beyond which, God himself kath sworn That he who goes is lost. IIow far may we go in sin ? How long will God forbear? Where docs hope end, and where begin The confiues of despair. An answer from the skies is ssnt, "Ye that from God depart; While it is called to-dat, repent, And harden not your hearts." A Child's Dream or a Star. BT CHABLES PICKENS. There was once a child, and he strolled about a good deal, and thought of ji jreat number of things. He had atVster, who was a chili too, and his coTstant companion. These two used to wonder all day long. They wondered at the height and Llueue.ss of the sky ; they wondered at the depth of the bright water; they wondered at the goodness and power of God who had made the lovely world. They used to say to one another some times, " Supposing all the children upon the earth were to die, would the flowers and water and sky be sorry?" Thev believed they would be sorry For, said thev. the buds are the children of the flowers, and the little playful streams that gambol down the hillsides, are the children of the water; and the smallest bright specks playing at hide and seek in the sky ail night, must surely be the children of the stars ; anil they would all be grieved to .eee their playmates, the children of men, no more. There was one clear shining star flint used to come out in the skv before the pirtt. & to V - tli aud more beauti- craves. It was larger ful, they thought than all the others, an.l every night they watched for it, stand ins hand in hand, at a window. Who- I eVCr saw it hrt, cried outt4i I see the j star J' And often they cried out both .1.. 1 .. i,.. : 1.1 rie, and where. So they grew to be such friends with it that, before lying down in their beds, they always looked once more to bid it good night ; and when they were turning round to sleep, said " God bless the star." But while Bhe was still very young, oh ! very, very young, the sister drooped, and came to be so very weak that she could no longer stand in the window at night; and then the child looked sadly at the star, turned round and said to the patient pale face on the bed, " I see the star ! aud then a smile would come upon the face, and a little weak voice scd to say, ' God bles9 my brother and the star t" Qt And so the time camo all toe aoon 1 when the child looked out alone, and when there was no face on' the bed; and when there was a little grave among the graves not there before ; and when the star made long rays down toward him, as he saw it through bis tears. Now, these rays were so bright, and they seemed to make such a shining way from earth to heaven that when the child went to his solitary bed,"" he dreamed about the star; aud he dreamed that lying where he was, he saw a, train of people, taken np that sparkling road by angels. And the star, opening, showed him a great world of light, where many more such angels waited to receive them. All these angels who were waiting turned their beaming eyes upon the peo ple who were carried up into the star; and some came up into the star; and some came out from the long rows in which tbey stood, and fell upon the peo ple's necks, and kissed them tenderly, and went away with-thwm down avenues of light, and were eo happy in their com pany that, laying iu his bed he wept for THE IIIDUEX joy- But there were many angels who did not go with them, and among them one he knew. The patient face that had Iain upon the bed was glorified and radiant, but his heart found out his sister among all the host. His sister's angel lingered near the entrance of the star, and said to the leader among those who had, brought them thither : " Is my brother come ?' ' And he said "No." . She was turning hopelessly away, when the child stretched out his arms and cried," O; sister I am here I Take me!" and then she turned her beaming eyes upon him, aud it was night, and the xtar was shining into the room making long rays down towards him, as he saw it through his tears. From that hour forth the child looked out upon the star as on the hoiifNie was to go to when his time should cohvc ; and he thought that he did not belong to the earfhaloue, but to the star, too, because of his sister's angel gone before. There was a baby born to be a brother to the child ; and while he was so little that he never yet had spoken a word, he stretched his tiny form out on his bed, and died. Again the child dreamed of the open ed star, and of the company of angels, and the train of people, and the rows of angels with their beaming eyes all turned upon those people's faces. Said his sister's augcl to the leader : - " Is my brother come ?" And he said, " Not that one but an other." As the child beheld his brother's angel in her arms, he cried, "O sister, I am here! Take me !" And she turned and smiled upon him, and the star was shining. He grew to be n young man. and was busy at his books, when an old servant came to him and said : Thy mc-'jer is no I bring her blessing on her darliu ius: s on Again at night he saw the star, and all that former cotupanjr. Said his sister's angel to the leader: " Is my brother come?" And he said, " Thy mother." A mighty cry of joy went through all the stars because the nther was reunit ed to her two children. And he stretch ed out his arms nd cried, ' O, mother, sister and brother, I am here? Take me!" And they answered him, "not yet," and the star was shining. He grew to be a man whose hair was turniui; prnt-. and he was 811(1017 ki his b a Ui j t her' ftrtstilBWflT. K"woc aua .wun nis eyes oeueweu wun tears, when the star opened once again. Said hi sister's angel to the leader, " Is my brother come ?" And he Baid, " Nay but his maiden daughter." And the man who bad been a child saw his daughter, newiy lost to him, a celestial creature among those three, and he said ; "My daughter's bead is on my sisters bosom, and hei arm ts round mv mother's neck, and at her feet there is ; baby of old time, and .1 can bear the parting from her, God be praised!" And the star was nhininyy -' Thus the child came to ll an old man. and his once smooth face was wrinkled, and his steps were beut. ' And, one night, as be lay upon his bed, his children standing round, he cried, as he had cried so long ago : ' I see the star .'" They whispered to one another: " He is dying." And he said, "I am. My age is lull ing from me like a garment, and I move towards the star as a child. And O, my Father, now I thank thee that it has often opened, to receive those dear ones that await me !' And the star was shining and it shines upon his grave. A Specimen IJkick. The New York Express says the value of "reconstruc tion" on the Radical plan is evidenced in the condition of Tennessee. Every na- 1 tive body that can is getting out of the State, and leaving places for adventurers with carpet-bags to fill. These latter, as fast as tbey obtain footing and power, tighten the thumb-screws on all whites bot of their own stamp, and encourage the negroes to perpetrate such outrages as the natives can not bear, but must resent. This brings Brownlow's militia dowu upon thern, aud thus we hear of murderw in tt r-frin almost dally.' Memphis used to be a flourishing city. Five thousand persons have left it within ninety days. Whole rows of store houses in the most eligible business portions of the city are now untenanted. Dwellings in streets are vacant. The poor have scanty employment, aud some are on the verge of destitution. Provisions and rents are held at exorbitant rates. Here is a specimen of the fruits of reconstruc tion, as Congress wants it. The other States, about to be " brought in" under the same beneficent code aud system, are pretty well ruined already; but when the " Brownlow plan" gets systematically at work, the ruin will be equal to that of Poland. The Astiqi'itv of Horse Kacinq.- The antiquity of horse racins, in sub stantially the same shape which it now wears, is lar greater than even racing men of reading and education have been in the habit of supnosincr. Without fol lowing the authors of some treaties upon the turf kinto their elaborate disquisitions as to the evidences that the Romans, af ter their subjugation of Jii itaiu brought over their own breed 5b f running horses to these island, we are justified ,$ri be lieving that horse racing .s 'in vogue among the Saxons, from the factthat Hugh the Great, father of Hugh Capet, of France, sent a present to King Athel stan of several German raee horses. There is also farther evidence that horses, famous for their speed, were transmitted to this monarch from many parts of the continentond we read that in the year 930 a law was promulgated by him, enacting that no horses should be exported from Great Britain except as royal presents. But the earliest authen tic evidence of horse races having been celebrated in this country is furnished by the old chronicler, Fritz-StepfffensT" who wrote in the reign of Heury II (1154 to 1189) and who describes what would in these days be designated as the Smithfield meeting of 1163. As we read the translation of the old annalist's words describing a ial of speed be tween horses which took place seven centuries ago, it is with difficulty that we can persuade ourselves that .we have not Bell's Life or the SportingMagazine be fore us, and that we are not perusing the performances of animals by Stockwell or Trumpeter. " The horses," he tgKs us, "are not without euiulatu. tdiey trem ble and are impatient, and are continual ly in motisn. At last, the signal once given, they start, devofff the course, and hurry along with unremitting swiftness. The jockeys, inspired with the thought of applause aud the hope of victory, clap spurs to their willing horses, brand ish their whips, and cheer them with their cries." St. Pauls.

Every one will be in good humor and look faiorably, for the time, upon those who bi-iftg about such a state of things. The mass. of people will not stop to think about the fictitious aud evanes cent character of such prosperity. They will swim: along joyously with the tide, carying or thinking little of the inevit abla reaction that must follow, bring ing universal bankruptcy and gloom. And what will the political leaders care so that they can keep the people in good temper and amused uutil they can con solidate their power and make msuey out of the inflation.

Much has been written and said of the instinct or intelligence of the lower or der of animals, and where one leaves off and the other begins according to the quality or importance of the exhibit. The fact is, that I know but little of it, and sometimes I think much less, espe cially after witnessing such actions and reultsasare contained in this true story: A centlem-n (a valued frieud of mine) residing in one of our rural villages, had a pony, a lively, docile, and very active animal, whose principal service was to carry his mistress out riding every- fine day her uncle riding his horse. In their rides they had to pass a farm house just over the bridge, where was kept a surly cur dog, who habitually jumped over the fence and barked at and wor ried the horses, and particularly the pony attempting to bite his hind legs, and causing him to wheel about and sou'rm abrtut, to face the dogs and Pave his heels. One day the owner of the do? was i refHijfed to keen his dote insiae tne icnee ana prevent hin worry ing the horses. He replied: "is dog had as good a right to the road as any other puppy, and he should not tie him up." "Then," said uncle, "I'll shoot your dog the next time he flies out at us in tlirs way," and so left. When they got home and the saddle and bridle were taken off the pony, he slipped away from the hostler and ran up to the house, where Bruno, a large 2ew Fpundland dog was lyincr on the mat in front of the piazza. They met; pony fu"t his nose down to Bruno's, and he raised his bead as though he was listen ing. "There, look at that dog and pony," said uncle: "what under the sun are they at? They act as though they were talking." They let them alone until they got through, and pony ran about the lawn and would not be caught, and Bruno laid down again as before. y Next day they rode again, prred to shoot the cur or drive him from his evil practices. A short distance from the home, and on turning an angle of the j road, they looked back, and spied Bruno miietlv following -1 - j This won't do," pays uncle. Go back Bruno; you know there is nobody home but your mistress, and who'll guard the house when you are away?" ''Go back." The doir turned and jumped the fence. j as they thought, to go across lots. So ! they rode on"until the farm honse ap peared in sight. Out came the cur. Uncle prepared to shoot, when all of a sudden overcame Bruno, seized the cur by the neck, shook him violently, and made him yell like fun; so much so that the family came out to the rescue, while pony looked on. evidently with as much delight as a child would at play. 7e rawed the "round, shook and bowed his iiea,l anj was very active iu securing a j nosos, with pony. j When tbey all got home again the 'fimmfil bail another rit tfrcncp and fi iinn f..Hinn nftmir iiif i:twn Tiiu.'ii in rue A ,, t ..,4 1. .1 ...r , ---- applause and merriment ot uncio ana the family.

Count Bistnark alone has got three par liaments of his own to manage, with quite distinct systems of representation. A day at Berlin which is not a day when some parliament is being assembled or prorogued or adjourned is like a day which is not a Saint's day isVSpaiu. There are such days but that is he most that can be said. In Austria there is a very vigorous Parliament sitting at Vi enna, another, equally vigorous, sitting at Pesth. And, besides these Parlia ments in the Great States, there are end less Parliaments in the little States more or less independent of the petty princes who reign in the territory. In Spain, unhappily, only the merest show1 and 4uini ef representative institutions con tinues' and every one there passively succsmbs to a petticoat government sup ported by baj-onets. In Italy the pa triotic firmness of the Deputies in vot ing the grinding taxes has restored the credit of the free government. But It aly has only had to sustain a reputation for killing free government, whereas Germany has had to earn one. At pres ent the success of the Germans is very great, and this success illustrates in the most forcible manner, the great truth of constitutional history, that the whole force and meauiog' of constitutions lie in the tone and temper of those who work them. If the Germans were not inclin ed to make their constitutions work well, there is nothing in the constitutions to insure easy and successful working, jthiug could in theory be more cum brous and ill-devised than there should be three separate Parliaments a Prus sian, a Federal, and a Custom's Parlia ment each meeting at Berlin, and each controlled by Count Bismark. But they go oh"Yery well just now, because all who sit in them are really penetrated by' the same ideas. Advertising Patronage. We copy the following sensible remarks from the Jamestown (N. Y.) Journal : "In a general sense, the effort on the part of any merchant to get trade with out advertising is a wrong to other busi ness men in the place. Whether a man believe in advertising or not, he will con cede that the newspapers &rA Preat help to the place, and that idsiness amounts to very little in places that dou't support one or more of them. Absence of newspapers is a bad sign for a place, in a business point of view, as absence -of churches is in morals, of school houses in education. The men who support the village paper do more to build up the place, and m'ake it pros perous, and draw trade there, than all other influences combined. Therefore, the man who tries to come in and take the benefits of that prosperity without contributing to sus;ain it, tries to 'dead head" on tho rest of the business men, end docs them a rot2- A Curious rase of Suspended Animation. The Detroit Tribune gives currency to the following singular case: A week or two ago the wife of a very respectable mechanic resting on Twelfth street in this city died after a short ill ness, and the usual arrangements were made for the funeral services. One of the city undertakers, at the request of the husband provided a very handsome coffin for the deceased, into which the lifeless remains were placed, and they were permitted to remain in a room. During the ensuing night, however, one of the watchers, who had heard and read of cases of suspended animation, and being imbued with a curiosity in the premises, decided to ascertain for her self whether there was atiy probability of truth in such reports. A favorable opportunity presented itself for the ful fillment of her schemes, aud having satisfied herself that he was really alone with the corpse, she obtained a small looking glas and laid it on the face of the deceased.- To, hercreat sus prise there appeared evidences or breathings upon the face of the glass, and she re solved, for fear of deception, to make an other test with another glass. The opera tion being repeated, the same signs were manifested, and she revealed her dis coveries to the other watchers. Each in turn tried the glass, and "each had the satisfaction of observing precisely what the first did. Of course in the morning the whole affair was discussed with the family of the deceased, and it then occurred that a long time ago a young man, a member of the woman's family, had died, and previous to the burial the corpse had actually turned over upon the side, show ing signs of life, and the case was de clared to have been one of suspended animation by the best medieal tesMmony that could be procured. Under all these! circumstances it was by the husband deemed advisable to deler the funeral ceremonies, and accordingly notice was given that the interment would not take place, at the time previously announced. The corpse was left in the coffin several days, and upon the fifth day, after the supposed death, signs of life were so num erous that the body was removed to bed, where it gradually became warmer, and finally its previous deadly expression for sook it altogether. The ensuing day the woman opened her eyes, spoke on the third, aid she is now in a f.tir way of recovery. Three well known medical gentlemen are now engaged in examin ing this case thoroughly, and when their labors are completed we are promised their written opinions concerning the affuir. The Hebrew. As long as time shall last the Hebrew child of the Orient will be an object of interest aud curiosity to his fellow man. Tossed for ages upon the ever changing tide of history, subject to every vicissitude, an exile, a ref ugee, wanderer, be has nevertheless carried with him the 01 vliich he is the oracic ttiroiign me manifest will of God. Even in tne dark est ages of the world he has kept alive the spark of immortal reason and illum ined the gloom of fanaticism, skepticism and t3-ranny by his unquenchable faith and his exalted conception of the ma jestic desien of the Creator. Time. revolution and change have only wrought out more clearly his claim and placed him more distinctly as an object of won der and admiration. Triumphing over every obstacle, he has at length come to be the first citizen of the world in com merce, finance, and the fine arts. Roths child, Touro, Mendelsohn, Heine, tui hundreds of others have proven their claims among the great masters and lifted the reproach ot the nations " from off their people." It can no longer be said: " The wild dove hath his nest, the fox his cave, mankind a country, Israel but the grave 1" For in this land of freedom, as in al most every country of the globe, the Hebrew has the largest liberty, and has built himelf a home. - He has become identified with our institutions and shares equally the bur'hens of the gov ernment. But the most remarkable fea ture about the Hebrew is his charity, he never suffers one of his own people to become an object of care to the State ; his benevolent societies are without end. Depreciation of Lands In Ten nessee. The report of the Department of Agri culture for March, compiled and issued by the United States Goverment Com missioner of Agriculture, haa returns from Tennessee showing a general de cline in the value of farm lands through out the State. Compared with the esti mates of 1860 the depreciation is placed at between 15 and 20 per cent on the ag gregate value. The heaviest falling off is in David son or Ileary counties, being abont 50 per cent. Weakley and .leigs report forty per cent, decline. Some few coun ties report an increase in value. The same general causes, says the Nashville Banner, which have tended to depreciate real estate, and particularly farm lands, in the Southern States, have operated in Tennessee, though not to the same ex tent, nor is it probable that a return to former values will be so long delayed, there being less necessity to sacrifice and not so strong a disposition to Bell at any price.

The New York Times, which fVT the negro scheme for the United State., has th following about the African Paradise of San Domingo: "The latest news from San Domlwgo is that the country is ia anarchy, and tho prisons all full. Of course there must oe some sort of governing foree ia ex istence to keep the prisons full ; but this, is probably about the-full extent of its power. It is' painful to Fee such a rich and charming part of the world give up to ruin and savagery. It is grievous to see the control of such a country in the hands of such a people. Bat wo see no hold for it. And we may. rest satisfied that if there be any lower depths of human degradation than that which they hav reached, it will not re quire them many years to sink to it.
