EPPERSON, EDITOR. The Fire Is Out. BY PA UL PENCIL, JR. I hrar their iread, dim, ghostly dim, The dark night spirits roam "about; The slow clock ( inns its midnight, hvmn, "lis bitter cold, the fire is out. And now tne joys before me move fd Earth's wild battle put to rout, Whr lade the forms we prize and "love And one by one life's fires go out. Man has but one deep love of youth, One trembling love of hope and doubt, No answering love rewards his truth, The heart is chilled, the fire goes out. At morn to battle for the right Goes forth i ip- manhood strong and stout; Alas that day must close in night, MeA change to clods, the fire goes out ! Fill -high the glass ! The hour scarce past With loudest pOOfl and deepest bout ! Ah ! c( Id gray morning dawns at last, The headache comes, the fire goes out. Up ! up ! for Fam?,r Honor's state ! We'll carry Glorjrs high redoubt. Tis but the millionth man is great, The rest, poor souls, their fire goes out. Poor child-man, in thy constant strife, Why ever fret and tease and pout ? Thou canst not wield the toys of life, Go ! sleep ! Go die ! thy fire is out. The last spark flies, and leaves the soul That grave with ashes strewn about: Cold grate, with many a dark dead coal, Emblem of lile, thy fire is out. One Vacant Clan jr. We were talking a days since with on esteem ed friends of ours, who was reared after the good old New England fashion, and with whom "Thanksgiving," as a matter of course, is an in stitution a day of family le-union, of domestic and social rejoicing. He is a man of noble sym pathies and a big heart. In speaking of the com ing Thanksgiving day. a cloud passed over his features, and tear gathered in his eye. T have,' said he, 'Tor many years gathered my family around me on that day. All ray children have sat with meat my annual feast, and it never -c-currod to me that it could ever be otherwise. We ate, drink, and were merry, without think ing that a change must one day corns. But that change has already come. At our annual ban quet this year this will be one vacant chair." It was a sad. sad thought. Sorrowful memo ries come clustering around the heart at the men lion of that "one vacant chair." The pleasant features, the happy smile, the cheerful voice of the loved and the lost come like a vision of sweetness from the sorrowful past. The pale, still face, the marble brow, decked with the gar lands of the grave, follow, and the eye dims wih tears as the vision vanishes away, and th paip ible presence only is left of that "one va cant chair.' And so it is. and so it will he always. Year by year those that we love drop from around us Some arc snatched away by death, going down in the bloom isf their beauty to the city of the dead. Some swing out into the great world, and are borne by the currents of life, far away from us. The day of annual reunion comes; we gather around the yearly banquet, we look fi r the cher ished faces, we listen for the loved voices; but the heart swells and the big tear trembles on the eyelids, for there, where one who nestled fondi lest in our offections used to sit, is " one vacant chair.' We who sit at the head of these family feasts should never f rget that one day we shall be ab sent from the benquet. The time will surely come when we shall cease to occupy a place there. We know not when the racaocy may occur, but as surely as time rUs on. as surely as human destiny is sweeping onward and onward, ahvavs towards eternity, so surely will the day of our departure come ; and struggle as we may, Rsist as we may, as all the aggregated energies of nature may, we must pass from among the liv ing, and leave behind us for the next gathering one vacant chair." Albany Register. try Cunning is seeing a hundred miles ahead wisdom, fifty miles in advance. So the cun- nins man is brought to a stand still, because from peering so closely at the stones under his nose, he has overlooked the swamp to wlncn ins by-path leads ; whilst the wise man has seen the other, only to decide on the best way of avoid ing both. rr" Life is often wasted in a search after un attainable advantages, and generally, through the scruples of pride and vanity, our nappmess is delayed from day to day by a rejection of those pleasures and benefits which are within our reach. Genteel folks are martyrs to an absurd decorum ; and some would rather faint with fa tigue than sit on a post to rest ; whilst in open ddvlitiht it would require more moral courage in a " gent'eTnan" to take a draught of water from a town pump, than it would to lead a " loriorn hone." CCF Be careful how you throw bottles and boot-jacks at an old maid's tom-cat. You'll nev er hear the last of it. Advanced spinsters place more of their affections on a cat than a political patriot does on getting an office, pap, and lazy hours. qT In a fashionable novel, the author says "Lady Emma trembled, grew pale, and imme dtelyM'M Tne Pinter, putting "p" in stead 1 rendered it, "the lady grew pale, land immadutely painted." A LITTLE LECTURE ADDRESSED TO MY DSAB3. Br an old Maid of the World. "My dears, Love is like Chancery ; it is a u u easier to get into than to get out again. There are thousands of ways for the former, but as for the latter, it can't be done noways. "Take my advice, my dears never believe a man befoie marriage, and never trust him after wards. "If men, my dears, were to pay, like servants, for everything they broke, they wouldn't be so fon I of breaking their hearts for every pretty girl they saw. The fortune of a Rothschild couldn't stand, my dears, against such a ruinous amount of breakages. Why I have known a man's heart break as often as an American bank, and, yet he would open the next day with the sameJbrass plate on his face, on which you Could plainly read"'assurance,' and his heart would go on issuing the same false note as before Be sides, jv hat becomes of all their broh en hearts, I should like to know ? Where do they go to? Along with the old 'moons, I suppose : cr the may be keeping company, there's no knowing where, with all the pins that are lost, each heart being stuck through with a pin, lika the curious insects in a museum. "There's no need to tell you, I am sure, irf-t dears, about choosing a husband. A woman's instinct generally guides her in those little mat ters. But this I U U you, that husbands differ as much as geese ; but the softest mind is not al ways the worst. The softer your husbands, the more pliable you will find him, andal! the easi er for you to twist him around your little fin ger If husbands trusted more io their wives and less to themselves, there would be more hapjy marriages ; but, until they learn what is due to our sex and are fully prepared to pay it. that happy ballanee will never exist in a house hold which, to the husband, should be the source of as much as a large balance is at his banker's; but at present the wife is not allowed to hae any share or interest in the one, or to participate in t he other. "1 will conclude, tny dears, with giving you a few rules with regard to the choice of hushm;! in general, and though, my dears, 1 have never ventured on the stormy seas of mitrimnny my self,"' (here the fail lecturer's voice slightly trem bled with emotion,) "still, I have watched from the haven of single blessedness many of the squalls an 1 breezes that have taken place upon them, and have derived no fnnll knowledge from the numerous shipwrecks I have witnesaed iu consequence ot them ; and this knowledge 1 am only too willing to imparl to thoe who are anxious to embark for the United Svstes. "I sha'l confine my observations, my dears, tf) the small circle of my experience of men, such as 1 hae studied them round the lea liible. "If a man wipes his feet on the. door mat be fore coming into the room, you may be sure he will makea good domestic husband. Tf a man, in snufiing the candles, snutfs them out, you may be sure he wiil maka a stupid hus band. "If a man puts his handkerchief on his knees whilst taking hi3 tea, you may be sure he will be a prudent husband. "In the same way, always mistrust the man who will not take the last piece ot toast of Sal ly Lunn, but prefers waiting for the next warm batch. It is not unlikely he will make a greedy, selfish husband, with whom you will enjoy no 'brown' at dinner, no crust at tea, no peace what ever at home. The man- my dears, who wears goloshes, and is careful about wrapping himself up well be fore venturing into the nightair, not unfrequent ly makes a good invalid husband that mostly stops at home, and is easily comforted with slo"ps. "The man who watches the kettle and pre. vents its boiling over, will not fail, my dears, in his married state, in exercising the same care in always keaping the pot boiling. "The man who doesn't take tea, illtreats the cat, takes snuff, and stands with his back to the fire, is a brute whom I would not advise you, my dears, to marry upon any consi.leration, either foe iove or money, but most decidedly not for love. "But the man who, when the tea is over, is discovered to have had none, is sure to make the best husband. Patience like his deserves being rewarded with the best of wives, and the best of mothers-in-law. My dears, when you meet with such a man, do your utmost to marry him. In the severest winter lie would not mind going to bed first." Punch. fXJ- There is a great deal of "the woman," as a lover in these lines, which come we know not whence, and from the pen of we know not whom: "Yes, my lips to-night have spoken Words I said they should not speak : And I would I could recall them Would I had not been so weak. Oh ! that one unguarded moment ! Were it mine to live again. All the strength of its temptation Would ad peal to me in vain. "True, my lips have only uttered What is ever in my heart ; I am bappy when beside him, Wretched when we are apart. Though I listen to his praises Always longer than L should ; Yet my heart can never hear them Half so often as it would. "And 1 would not, could not pain him, Would not for he world offend, I would have him know I like hinl As a brother, as a friend ; But 1 meant to keep oue secret In my bosom always hid. For I never meant to tell him That I loved him but I did." COT A. French Canadian posts his wife in St. John, in the following words : "Ma nam, dabs Peter RoWville ma wife he leave ma hous and shant ax me any man dat trus him on ma name, data lots for you." JLUe Fictu.e. From the local department of the Philadel phia Sit7i we cut the following true life picture : " I have no one to care for .Tie I" said a lit tie child scarce twelve years old, arraigned before the Mayor on a charge of youlbtul depravity. 'Noene! my father is dead, and my mother" yes, little oa your mother still lives but, fur better would it have b32n fo you, had she also been laid in tho tomb before it closed over your Hither, than thai she should have learnea to trans gress; for, than, yoi choe!s would have never been dyed vith shame at thoughts of her, a, id your young Iip3 hesitate to speak her name ! "All yi ungand fallen, cs you are, from the in nocence and trustfulness of childhood !" 'i'his was not alwags so ou, no, uof always. There was once a stately mansion that shelterad thee, little one, and obsequious servants who hasten ed to do thy childish bidding. A refined and noble man, whose arms were outstretched to re ceive you, as in childish playfulness you sprang to receive his caresses, when you heard the sound of that familiar footfall in the entry. And there was another ; and, oh, how beautiful she was you know itall the years of suffering that have passed over that young head have not been able io obliterate the remembrance of her radiant loveliness, nor that fatal morning when you were aroused from your infantile slumbers and hurried to the chamber where death was hover ing a father's couch ! nor yet, how you clung to him nestling your little head close to his bosom, while he smoothed back your curls and kissed you over and over, 89 if he could never let you go; your loretieau, your che-ks and mouth, and then held you still closer in his arms ! " The child disturbs you, Frederick ; let mr- sen i her away. And the neautitul woman vv dd hive thrust you from the room of your dying father. "Xo! no! Ciroline I must give her up very .-o u. 1 feel death grasping me in his icy folds for her ske lor your sake I would have welcomed t.fe and health as inestimable blessing-. It grieves me, Curo, that I can leave you but a few hundred for your support. You will find my balance sheet in my desk, end inclosed is a lite insurance, that will give you five thous and rnorf. With the help of this you can m -tain yourself and Anne with comfort. 1 know it is very hard to condemn you to a life without the gratification of your exquisite taste yet it will be necessary, in order to reserve enough for the necessaries of life." His Hps snddenlv ceased their sound you laid ours close to them, I i f tie child, when you beard the murmur, "God protect my orphaned .;hter," and then all was still, and you were torn from all that remained of a father, and car ried sobbing to your own room ! "All ! oh no, not all !n But a few short hours elapsed and the modiste of your mother was in the room. 'You know my taste and style I leave the arrangements for the costumes of myself and child to you," said the bereaved widow. "Caroline, you know what my dear friend said about your future income. Now, I km w you have beautiful black dresses, and with a few rows of crape, and a few dollars, yoU can trans form them into mourning. I would do this if it was my case." So said a gentle woman, the wife of their pastor, who had come, as was her habitual custom, to the house of mourning. The modiste gave the woman a vulgar stare, and then seeing your mother hesitated, with her most cringing obsequiousness said, " Madame, your taste shall be gratified." and then left the room. You would not have toiled quite sii long for six and a quarter cents a day, "little one," if you had had that six hundred and fifty dollars that the heartless modiste demanded in payment for the costumes of your mother. You were very young then, and have only a dim rec( Uection of the few years that followed You only remember that the longing for your deceased father was the constant emotion that stirred your heart, stamping every recollection with which your life had been blended with his every day still more vividly on your memory, and you learned to look upon the succeeding year as a void. You next remember leaving your home with your mother and then it struck your childish heart that she had, too. somewhat changed and you remember your pillow was oftener wet with tears than formerly, and jour heart did not bound to her as it were wont ; you tried to think, for days and weeks, why this was so, and grew subdued and noiseless in your steps and tone, in thinking, and with all this, matteis grew worse, for you had no nurse, and your lit tle frocks were often in tatters. Everything around you was wondrously Strange; stranger than all, your mother, who laughed loudly, jested freely and coarsely with every one, and the house where you then dwelt was frequented by visitors, but you, child as you was, knew they were not 6uch visitors as came to your father's house. One night, you recollect a cry of mortal agony aery for help the house had been invaded by officers, during which your mother caught you in her arms, and half naked as you were, rushed with you into the street ; you soon found yourself in a house similar to ihe one you left, which you have since called your home thodgh you rarely see your mother, and where you have for the last year earned enough to buy an entrance into scenes of the lowest depravity. Yet these, though child more sinned against than sinning, have not blotted the remembrance of thy once beautiful home and mother from thy memory. Reader, this is no fiction 1 Go to the House of Refuge, and inquire for the little girl sent there by the Mayor, and she will tell you even more than I have written. The names are all the fiction would it were not so f.r then many a parent would, with less agony, say God protect my orphans. THE CITY OF NEW YORK ASLEEP. The following from the N. Y. Tribuns, is ia the best vein of Dickens: "It is curious to see the circulation of a great city commence i i the morning the great city th had roared itself to sl ; True, there was a feeble pulse all night ; the cars beat to and fro ; a carriag? now and then gave a flutter, but afte all there had been aquiet hour. About half a ntUion of the people had been lying on a "dead level" for four or five hours ; some on pillows of down and s me on curb stones; some on coun terpanes and soxai beneath the blue quit of heav en. A qtiTr figure they make in the mind's eye, to be sure 400,000 folks, more or less, five or six miles long ljing on their backs lying in tlsrs or rows lying three or fourdeep. In the cellar that is, in the "primitive foundation' then first floor, second, third, and so on, up to the girret. Three hundred thousand people dreaming, Two hundred thousand in red night, cap.T; One hundred thousand in white, "and hem and there one trimmed in lace. Fifty thousand curls twisted up in papers, giving their owners the appearance of having made a pillow of uigar lighters; twenty thousand curls hanging on the backs of chairs, or tossed upon tables. How gently Time touches such people they never grow gray at all. Ten thousand people weeping. and now and then one dying dying in his sleep dying in a dream. And then the getting up is ridiculous enough : though going to bed should we say "retire" in these refined times? is a solemn place of busi ness, whether people think of it or not. But the getting up, the waking up, is funny enough for a farce its process a species of grnndualism. Here's one who has slept "like a top" for nine solid hours, and now he begins to wake ; first it is a half lurch, and a long breath, and a yawn then an arm is thrust ont ; then a foot; the mus cles are waking up. Next the rattle of the early wagon strike his ear; hearing is coming to. Then his tongue moves uneasily ; taste ie return -ing. Last, his eyes open, one after other, then half close, then open again, and the man isawake- awake all over, awake for all dav. There's an other sound asleep this minute, and this lie s't-kes himself like a huge Newfoundland, springs up "percussion," and the thing is done : the fellow has not a sleepy hair about him SnoWy quilts that have just risen and fallen with the gentle bosom beneath, begin to grow uneasr. The sweet sleepers are waking, and so we will draw the curtains, and leave them to their toil ette. Bundles of rage in dark, damp corners toss and tumble ; there's something alive underneath Our it comes more rags. Misery makes no toilette, and there are no curtains to draw. Powell awd his Great Paiwtiko. The great national painting ot Powell is still on exhibi tion at the Academy of Design in Broadway, and those strangers in the city who have not. yet seen it, had better hasten to do a- becsuse it is to be removed by the middle or end of the week to New Orleans. The artist has made ar rangements with Mr, Morris, who is acquainted1 with picture exhibitions, to embark in a few days to exhibit this painting in the South; whence he will proceed west up the Mississip pi, to show it in the various cities along that river till he reaches Pittsburg; thence he wiil return orer the mountains and exhibit at Some other cities on his way, before it is finally placed in the Capitol at Washington, for which it was painted by Mr. Powell, pursuant io the order of Congress. This great work, one of the most striking pieces of art produced in the present age, has been discussed by newspaper critics in this city, of all kinds and all tempers. Some of the small critics of the day, who write for ihe Sunday p-ess, have censured it without knowing any thing of the subject j and one magazine, and only one, Putnam's) has condescended to be a common scavenger of the filthy vituperation. It is gratifying, however, that every true lover of art who has beheld and studied the painting, has acknowledged, without a single dissenting voice, the high merits of Mr. Powell. We are glad to learn that Mr. Brady with his usual ac tivity and foresight, has secured copies of the work in daguerreotype, lest anything should be fal it in the contemplated tour. In the meantime while the picture goes to New Orleans. We understand that the painter himself will remain in this city, and open a stu dio for the practice of his art, in the upper part of Broadway. Already he has received numer ous orders from wealthy persons, the subjects to be chosen by himself, and the paintings to be finished according to his ideas of original beauty Mr Powell is the only artist or eminence now in the city, and we have no doubt that his coun trymen and the public will extend to him that encouragement and patronage which true ge nius ought always to command.
