FRIDAT OCTOBER 16 THE FUNNY CORNER TO A.W ABSENT WIFE. BT GEORGE D. PRXSTICE. 'TU morn the sea breeze seems to bring Joy, health and freslmee on its wing; Bright fiewers,to i all strange and new, Are glittering in Se early dew ; And perfumes rise from every grove As incense to the clouds that move Like spiriis o'er yon welkin clear Bat I am sad then art not hare. 'Tia morn a calm, nnbroken sleep Is on the blue waves of the deep ; A soft haze, like a fairy dream, Is floating over wood and stream, And many a broad magnolia flower Within its shadowy woodland bower, Is gleaming like a lovely star But I am sad thou art alar. 'Tia eve o'er earth the sunset skies Are painting their own Eden dyea ; The stars come down, and trembling, gluw, Like sea-gems in the waves below ; And like some unseen spirit, the breeze, Seems lingering 'mid the orange trees, Brothiag its. music round the spot But I am saa I see thee not. 'Tis midnight with a soothing spell The far tones of the ocean swell. Soft as a mother's cadence, mild. Low, breathing o'er het sleeping child ; And on aach wandering breeze are heard The rich notes of the mocking bird, In many a wild and wondrous lay But I am sad thou art away. I sink in dreams soft, sweet and clear, Thy own dear voice is in my ear ; Around my cheek thy trasses twine. Thy own loved hand is clasped ia mine; Tby own soft lis to mi ue is pressed ; My head ia pillowed ou thy breast ; Oh. I hare all ray heart holds dear, And I am happy thou art here ! I Grammar Lesson Teacher "Class in grammar, take your places. John, parse Vallandig ham.'' John " Vallandigham is a noun Bob " Hain't Tfuther. He's a traitor. Teacher "You're right, Bob, but let John do his own parsing. Go on." John " Common noun- -" Teacher No, proper." John " No, tain't; nothing proper about him. Common noun, because it is the name of a thing." Teacher " Fire ahead." John " Nominative case (nominated by a set of hard cases, called Copper heads) governed by Jeff. Davis, under stood." Teacher " What person is he?" John "A mitrhtv mean person, spo of Ohio), and the ken of (for Governor very last person that ought to be elect- ed. Teacher ' What ia his number?' John "There's only one of him, thank God. Had he rived in the days of B. Arnold, there would have been two of them, which wouldn't have been n.t all singular." Teacher " Do nouns ever have moods?" John " This one has, and it is a very bad one, though nothing to what it will be after the election." Teacher' Well done, Johnny, you can go out and play with the contra bands." Sik William Dayexaxt, the poet, who had no nose, was going along the Mews one day; a beggar woman followed him, crying: "Ah, heaven preserve your eyesight, sir; the Lord preserve your eyesight ! " ny god woman," said he. " do you pray so much for my eyesight? " "Ah, dear sir," answered the woman, " If you shonld grow dimsighted, you have no place to hang your spectacles on!" On the day of an eclipse, when all the inhabitants of Paris were without doors, provided with telescopes and pieces of smoked glass, an Englishman was seen driving furiously in a fiacre along on e of the principal streets. Where does my Lord wish to go? " said the driver. " To see the eclipse," said the English man, thrusting his head out of the coach window; "only drive up to it as near as possible, for I am short sighted."

Campbell, Heudersoai " May Duke, Cairo. " Delaware, Louisville. The river had risen about two inches in the "24 boats up to 5 o'clock last even ing at this point, but was falling at Cin c'mniiti. The weather is again dry and warm, and the faint hopes of a rise entertained for the last few days are dissipated. The Colossus arrived late Wednesday evening, and returned to Louisville that night. Tbe Cordelia Ann came in from Bow ling Green and returned last evening with all the freight she could carry. Her officers report Green Jiiver rising above the locks but falling below. The Huntsman arrived from Cairo early yesterday morning. She will go out to-day at noon, and shippers and pas senger will find it to their advantage -to be ready and on hajid at an early hour Oapf. Dexter commands in person, with Fred, ilnston in the office, and passen gers neied no otlier inducement to go aboard. The Chambers and the D. B. Campbell are maintaining their trips hence to Henderson. The Chambers seems to carry all the freight, but the Campbell takes aud brings the passengers. The Campbell's passenger accommodations are unsurpassable. The Delaware arrived from and re turned to Louisville yesterday morning. The favorite "John Thomas" Mc Combs. may be expected here this morn ing from Louisville. Her accommoda tions are very superior. We clip the following from the Louis ville Journal of yesterday: Ihe river at this point was stationary last night, with 2 feet 5 inches in the canal. Over Portland bar there are 3J feet; 30 inches at French Island; 3 feet at Flint Island and Scurlletown, and 30 inches at Cumberland Island and the Sisters. We have reports of a slight rise in the Kentucky and Wabash rivers. We also learn that all the small tributaries hence to Evansville have risen from 2 to 3 feet. Up to 10 o'clock last night we had re ceived no reports from the Upper Ohio. The Des Arc has abandoned her trip to Memphis, Captain King being afraid to risk the water. j ' The great Atlantic is doing a large business as one of the regular Lnited States mail packets between Vieksburg and New Orleans. She is the fleetest boat running into New Orleans. Capt. Harry McDougal commands her, with Mr. Edward Ford in the office. Three or four small paper boxes, each containing several pounds of powder, were discovered among the coal before the furnace doors of the Belle Memphis on'her last trip up to Cairo. One of the firemen was in the act of shoveling one of the boxes into the furnace along with coal, when he accidently noticed the package. Had one of them been thrown in, the explosion would have scattered the fire from the furnace in such a man ner that it would have been impossible to have saved the boat from burning up. The Henry Chouteau has been charter ed by the Government for twelve months, " or during the war," the Government having the right to purchase her at any time during the contiauance of the charter at $25,000. We understand that an attempt at mu tiny occurred on board the steamer Mars,Jjelow Memphis, at an early hour last Saturday. No damage was done, aud the result was the arrest of the per sons inciting tbe riot. The Natchez Courier of the 7th says: We hpve no change to report in the condition of the Mississippi at his point. It is still at a stand. We have no late news from the lower country streams. The Red, Ouachita, Arkansas, White and Yazoo rivers are of but little use to our people at present, and will not be, in all probability, until peaca spreads her goidenwings over our distracted country. -' In a trial of sneed. made lasL week ' - i between those swift steamers the Liberty No. 2 and City of Alton, from Memphis to Cairo, the Liberty No. 2 beat her competitor handsomely. The City of Alton has heretofore ranked as the fleet est boat on the lower Mississippi. The Liberty No. 2 is now entitled to the horns. The New Albany Ledger speaks our feelings in the following reference to one of our most enterprising steamboat men: Capt J. B. Archer, of the Archer Line of steamers, was in town yesterday, and gave us a glimpse of his smiling counte nance. It is hardly necessary to say that any line with which he is connected must of necessity be well conducted and popular. The Nashville Press, of yesterday, says: The river yesterday showed indicaj tions of arise, but up to night the change was hardly perceptible. The weather was again cloudy, rainy, and disagreea ble. The McCombs, Capt. Ballard, re-en tered the Henderson trade yesterday. Capt. Gilmore will soon be out with his elegant Ella Faber. The launch of the Tarascon has been postponed until Saturday afternoon next. LIQUORS. 1ST J3 H7S7 FIRM N. F.
