PFmas-To read these lines so as to make good sense is the mystery: I thee read see that me Love is up will I'll have But that and you have yonll One and down and you if, Greatness et Love. Go, count the sands that form the earth, Go, count the dro:s that make the sea; Go, count thai stars of heavenly birth, And tell me what the r numbers be; Then thou shalt know love's mystery. No measurement hath yet been found, No lines or numbers that can keep The sum of its eternal round. The plummet of its endless deep, Or heights to which its glories sweep. Yes, mea"ure Love, when thou canat tell The luand where serupns ne'er trod. The heights of berve the depths of hell, And laid their fluite measuring rod, On, the infinitude of God. WLile a great many wise and good people are mourning over the degenera cy of the Press in these latter days, the Pall Mall Gazette, in its article on "The Recreative use of Literature," presents some consoling reflections. The millions are slowly waking from their state of in tellectual torpor, and they must be fed with food convenient for them. It re quires an immense quantity to minister to their wants, and if in their present state of development they prefer "pad ding" to philosophy or theology, we must not despair of an improvement of their taste, nor deny ourselves the cons fort of remembering that their present condition is a slight improvement upon the intellectual lethargy which was once their lot. Again, though the bulk of current literature is flimsy, because the mass of readers cannot appreciate any thing of a better character, it is at the same time true, that there is more able thinking and writing now, than there has been at any previous period. We have but one other remark to offer on this subject. It is a prevalent mistake to believe that what is commonly called "heav3" reading cannot bie recreative. We believe experience will prove that more pleasure is derived from reading what taxes the faculties of the mind, than from what only employs them laz ily, without waking thom from their or dinary indolent attitude. Recreation comes from change of vigorous action, not from repose.--[Kew BEclectic. Carlyle says journalists ate the "true kings of the earth." They have no clown on their head, and some no crown in their pockets. Beware of him that is slow to anger. Anger, when it is long in coming, is the stronger when it comes, and the longer kept. Abused patience turns to fury. When fancy is the ground ot passion, that understanding which composes the fancy qualifies the passion; but when judgment is the ground, the memory is the recorder, and this passion is long retained. When a couple engage to row in the same boat for life, their condition is canoe-bail. The torch of Hymen is used to set "matches" on fire. The "spark" appears in the first instance, andi be ecmes a "flame." Friday is an unlucky day for marriages; people should wed on Wed-nesday. The "ringing" of belles often proclaims a wedding. The man is no longer a "bean" when the knot is tied. With a brutal husband, what hard lines are the marriage lines. How M0e SnoUD TrEAT WoxuN. A Persian poet gives the following in struaction upon this important subject: "When thou art married, seek to please thy wife; but listen not to all she says. From man's right aide a rib was taken to form the woman, and never was there seen a rib quite straiRht. And wouldst thou straighten itt It breaks, but bends not. Bince, then, 'tie plain that crooked is woman's temper, tbrgtive her faults and blame her not; nor let her anger thee; nor eoermaton use, as all is vain to straighten what is curved.

De Bow ns U -h f-il vtkew # t mat rimonial advertialng was iJaeA4 In by the tinbabitati at Pompeli THI FASHIONABLE YOUNG MEN OP NEw YORK--The fashionable young men of New York city would form a small army, since, it marshalled forth in full strength,they would number at least three thouaand--that is, including the different localities which assume to be fashionable.. Strictly speaking, how ever, none. but the residents of the Fifth avenue and its vicinity are fashionable people; for East Broadway and other out of-the-way spots, although they may be fual of realth, are not up to ton. Outof the '900,000 inhabitants of New York, we do not think there are over 1200 young men who are creme de la creme. A larger number than this may Iaveistree to the first families, but we limait our category to those whtmake fashion their study to the exclusion of everything else. These have rich pa rents, or are supported by investments; and hence they resemble the lilies of the field in one respect-they tail not, neith er do: they spin. They have never known what it is to put forth At mental or physical exertion. They dawdle away their time with every means to kill time except with thoughtor work. The great aim of his class is to be fashion able. The tie of a cravat is invested with such importance that sixteen differ ent ways are on the record. The cut of a coat is a still more important study, atid these fellows spend a few hours every day lounging in the parlors of the tailors and discussing style. Some who are less supplied with cash than others often contrive to get a suit by way of re compense for "blowing"for the concern, and most of them are very slippery customers. The fashionable young man breakfasts at 11 o'clock, which is asear ly as his hours of rising will permit. He then spends a season ; of chatting at Derby's, or Cronin's. or some other fashionable tailor's, where he meets a few associates. In the afternoon he promenades the Fith avenue, or lounges over the newspaper at the club. After he makes a few calls on fashionable ladies, and discusses in a dilettanti manner the opera or the last party, while at night he is sure to be found in some crowded saloon assaisting in the glories of a splendid reception. These fashionable young men dwell in a world of their own; their language and habits are diffrent from those of the rest of mankind. They have their own affected drawl and the peculiar daintiness of the accomplished fop. All this may seem pleasant for a time, but it comes soon to an end. The fashion younw man may be seen, after the lapse of a few years,' gray and wizened, worn out in doing nothing, and an old man at thirty. His energies have died but for want of use; just as, in legal parlanc~, a charecter becomes extinct from non usur, and before he has reached thirty five his career is generally wound up by a fashionable funeral.-[Troy Tines. "You are writing my bill on a very rongit piece of paper," said a client to his solicitor. "Oh, never mind, sir; it has to be filed before it goes into court." DEPTHS OF THE SEA.-The soundings effected with reference to the new trans atlantic cable have enabled comparisons to be made of the different depths of the sea. Gener.dly speaking, they are not of any great depth in the neighborhood of continents; thus the Baltic between Germany and Sweden is oxnly 120 feet deep, and the Adriatic between Venice and Triesto 130. The greatest depth of the channel between France and Eng land does not exceed 300 feet, whilst to the south-west of Ireland, where the sea is open, the depth is more than 2,000 feet. The seas to the south of Europe are much deeper than those in the inte rior. In the narrowest part of the Straits of Gibraltar the depth is only 1,000 feet, while a little more to the east it is 3,000. On the coast of Spain the depth is nearly 6,000 feet. At 250 miles south of the Nantucket (south of Cape Cod), no bottom was found at 7,800 feet. The greatest depths of all are to be met with in the Southern Ocean. To the west of the Cape of Good Hope 16,000 feet have been measured, and to the west of St. Helena 27,000 feet. It is estimated that the average depth of the Atlantic is 26,000 feet, and that of the Pacific 29,000. "Daughter," said a fond mother, whom oil spenlations had made aristo cratic, "has Mr. Brown proposed to you?" "Yes, ma," replied the daughter, "he proposes that we go out this evening and get some oysters." PABrIA2MENTARY.-A minister hav ing preached the same discourse to his people three times, one of his constant hearers said to him after service, "Doe tor, the sernon 3on gave as this morning has had three several readings; I move that it now be passed." "Mack," the Washington correspond ent of the Cincinnati Commercial, says Ip WVade is still hale and heiarty; rises eer3y morning at 6, takes -long walks when he can, and when he can't do that does a little swearing before breakfast to give him a good appetite. An Irishman who had left his native country, and .oaght~ an sylam In Ame~r ica,besarse it was a land of lhberty, was attacked on his arrival, in Deceat ber, by a furious deag -lie stooped to pick up a etone to def~md bimself, bat the stone was Asea bt.

The colossal foundations of the temple wall, which are stones of ten cubits and stones of eight cubits, laid by Solomon or his successors on the throne, are now being laid bare at the enormous depth of 90 fedt and more beneath the present surface. The bridge that onee spanned the ravine between the place of Zion and the temple on Moriah is now proved to have been upward of 150 feet high. If this be, as it seems, the ascent to the House of the Lord which Solomon showed to the Queen Sheba, we cannot wonder that on seeing it there was no spirit in her. The pinnaele of the temple on which the tempter placed the Saviour has justjseen uncovered to the base, anb is found still to havean o elevatiop o 136 feet. The statement of Josephue 14, therefore,'no exaggeration. If any one looked from the battlements into the valley he would be giddy;while his sight could not reach to such an immense depth. Sectiods of the ancient wall of Ophel have been exhumed, showing that, asJosephus says, it was joined to the southeast angle of the temple. Aqueducts, cisterns, rock hewn channe1l and passages have also been discovered within and around the harem, throwing new light on the buildings, the arrangements and the services of the temple. The great work of a complete exploration of ancient Jerusa lem is thus fairly and auspiciously com menced. The opportune visit of the Sultan and Grant Visor to England; and the representations made to the latter by the Archbishop of York, fol lowed up as they have been by the ener gy, the wisdom, wtnd tact of Lieutenant Warren and his admirable staff, have smoothed down Moslem prejudice, re moved local opposition,, and thus brought about opportunities for excava tion and exploration' such 'as never occurred before; and besides, large numbers of Arab laborers are trained to the work, and are eager to be employed, and the exact points for the successful exploration are nowwell known. Some ungenerous biped has patented a ;medicine to make a "fellow" rise early in the morning. The Boston Post says a six months old baby canjbeat it to death. "Nothing comes of nothing" is not true, since an empty-headed fool often causes uncounted trouble. How beautifully does =iope elevate the student's mind to golden fields of literature! VEGETATION IN TUE:MOON.-It was for a lonr timte the common conclusion among astronomers that the moon was without any atmosphere, and destitute of water; and that, consequently, neither animal nor vegetable life, eminent mo dern astronomners have maintained the moon has an atmosphere, though of a very limited extent. And quite recent ly Mr. Schawbe, a German astronomi cal professor, thinks he has discovered signs of vegetation on the surface of our satelite. It is well known that there are certain dark lines or scratches, as they appear, extending across the slopes of the highest mountains in the moon. These have been variously exp'ained, some regarding them ais the beds of dried up streams, others as the channels left by torrents of lava; others as having some other origin. Prof. Schawbe claimed to have discovered in these lines a greenish color, which appears at cer tain seasons, lasts a few months, and then disappears. lie therefore regards those lines as belts of vegitation. If his observations should be decisively con firmed by those ofot her astronomers, it will settle the question that the moon has both air and water, and will there fore remove any presumption against the existence of animal life on its surface. -English Paper. A vendor of hoop-skirts was extolling his wares in presence of a customer's husband. "No lady should be without one of these skirts," said the shopman. *"Well, of course not," said the husband, "she should be within it." An editor and his wife were walking out in thebright, moonlight one evening. Like all editor's wives she was of an ex ceedingly poetic nature-"Notice that moon; how bright and calm and beanti ful!" "Could'nt think of noticing it," returned the editor, "for less than twen ty-five cents a line.'" In Great Britain, there are now pnb lished 1324 newspapers, distributed as fillows: London, 253; elsewhere in England, 751-a total of 1004. Wales, 49. Scotland, 132. Ireland, 124.

It was but yesterday, and that lad was playing with tops, a buoyant boy. He is a man, and gone now! There is no more child bood-for.hitn or for us. Life has claimed him. When a beginning is made, it is like a raveling stocking; stich by stich gives way tilEall are gone. The house has not a child in it-there is no more noise in the hall-boys rushing in poll mell; iris very orderly now. There are no more skatesor sleds, bats, balls or strings left scattered about. Things are neat enough now. There is no delay for s'eepy folks; there is no longer any task before you lie down, of looking after anybody, and tucking up thebedelothes. There are no disputes to settle, nobody to get off to school, no Complaint, no importunities for impossible things, no rips to mend; no fingers to tie up, no faces to be washed, or collars to be arranged. There never was such peace in the house. It would sound like music to have some feet to clatter down the front stairs. Oh for some children's noise. What used to nil us, that we were hushing their loud laugh, cheek ing their noisy frolic. and reproving their slamming and banging the doors? We wish our neighbors would only lend us an urchin or two to make alittle noise in these permises. A home with out children! It's like a lantern and no candle; a garden and no flowers; a vine and no grapes; a brook and no water gurgling and gushing in its channel. We want to be tired, to be vexed, to be run over, to hear children at work with all its varieties. During the secu lar days, this is enough maked. Bat it is the S.bhbate that puts our homes to the proof, That is the Christian family day. The intervals of public worship are long spaces of peace. The family seernts made up on that day. The children are at home. You can lay your hands upon their heads. They seem to recogzine the greater and lesser love-to God and to friends. The house is peaceful but not still. There is a low and melodious trill ofchildren in it. But the Sabbath comes too still now. There is a silence that aches i. the ear. There is too much room at the table, too much at the hearth. The bedrooms are a work too orderly. There is too much leisure, and too little care. Alas! what means these things? Is somebody growing old! Are these signs tokens? Is life waninl?-Henry Ward Beecher. Of the 2218 graduates of WVest Point since 1802, 955 have died and 1263 are living. There have been appointed from New York 355 cadets; from P'ennsy . is, 218; from Virginia, 150; from Massa cbusetts, 139. Of the total number the New England States have had 408. Mr. Jellaby rejoices that his wife, who was born on the 29th of February, does not have a birth-day but once in four years. He thus escapes annually those little remembrances which call for cer tain inroads upon the purse, which in roads Mr. Jellaby isn't at all partial to, except when he is selfishly to be the gainer. The Emperor Napoleon III makes a note of everything lihe wishes to remem ber in hisl memorandum book. As soon as he has fiilld up a page of it he tears it out, reads it over, and then tears it to pieces. He says he never forgot any thing noted down and read over in this manner. A REMARKABLE PROPUECY.-Not long ago was found at Toledo, in Spain, in a monastery, a paper containing the following prophecy: "In the far west, beyond the ocean, will rise a nation which vill be great in power and wealth, and Satan, in one 4f his walks to and tro in the earth, will observa this nation, and, determined to destroy their happi ness, will there send two monsters, one to the North aind the other to the South; and hbe will give them strawberries, and they will eat then; and after they have eaten they will feel a great thirst, not to be quenched with anything but blood. They will, therefore, cause the brother to slay the brother, the father to slay the son, and the son the father, and they will drink the blood of the slain, and it will bring lamentation aid wailing throughout the land. Anid, when the time is fulfilled, there will arise a strong man in the North whoe will take the mon sters and bind them, and draw them into the sea, where it is theiw deepest, anl peace and hamppiness will again prevail throughout, and the people will again praise the Lord." It is said that the monks in the above monastery maintain that this prophecy was written before the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus; that Ferdinand and Isabella were, in the main, induced to fit out the ship for Columbus, and that the first partof it is fulfilled in America, and that the other part will soon come to pass. "I know Pim a perfect bear in my manners," said a young farmer to .is sweetheart. "No," indeed, John;" saki the maiden, "yon have never hbnugged me yet. Yon are more sheep than bear."

It is now boldly charged at Washing ton that the impeachment of the Presi dent was contrived to divert public at tention from the frauds now being ex posed in the Treasury. ))epDrtment. The developments so far are said to be positively astotriiding. For greater fa cility in printing bonds and currency, the original plates were duplicated, tri plicated, and, in many instances, multi plied ad libitiam. They were tfien used regardless of proper care; or system, and in many instances have since passed into the hands of persons in no wise connected with the Government, who are doubtless, for anything known to the contrary, yet at work with them. The extra coupons of the bonds are being daily paid at the Treasury office, simply because it is impossible to detect the difference between the originals and the duplicates-the genuine and the bo gus. No one seems to have the least idea of the extent of the fraud; although Thad. Stevens hazards a guess at one and a half billions, thus making the pub lic debt four billions, instead of two and a half as represented. One item alone points out from sixty to one thousand five hundred millions not yet accounted for. The most shameful laxity and care lessness seems to have existed in every department. No record has been kept of spoiled impressions. Thirty thousand strips of batik note paper, capable of printing three hundred millions, have disappeared. A deficit of sixty milliont is shown in the fractional currency, be sides an over-insuo of twenty-five mil lions; to say nothing of the vast sums squandered by defaulting officials. The disclosure of such a gigantic swindle in volves, of course, all degrees of crime. Not only theft, but petjury is boldly charged upon grave Senators. The ut anost alarm, it is evident, pervades finain cial circles, and Senator Sherman's warning would seem to indicate that where bad begins there's "worse re mains behind."-[N. O. Times.

IBATUING IN TIIiE l)EAd Sj.A.-From a work recently published in England, the annexed extract on the buovancy of tihe waters and the nlpearance of the Dead Sea; is taken: Though itl breadth not exceeding tert miles, thel Dead 8ea ,sems boumndllesa to the eye looking fromn North to South, and the nmumntiur of the waves as they break on the flintatrewn slores, together with the lines ofldrift-wood and frag ments of bitumen ont the beach, give to its waters a reseublatnce of the ocean. Curious to exlperience the sensation of swimming inl so curious a sea, I put to test the various accounts of the ex treme buoyaney felt in it, and I was quickly convinced that there was no ex - aggeration in what I had heard. I lound the water almost ti- 'id, and so strong that the chief dtlficllty was to keep slffi ee.ntly submecrged, the feet starting np inl the air at every vigorous stroke. When floating, half the ILnly rose above the surface, and with a pillow, onle might haive slept aupon the water. After a time the strangeness of the sen.sation in some menasure disappeared, and on appproaehing the shore I care hisly drolpped my fe.t to walk out when it,! as if a bladderr ehad been attach dtl to each heel, thuy dew npward.-! The slraiggle to ree.in er myself sent my headl dowt.; the. hitter aid briny stuff; from whicb I had hitherto giardedl my head, now rushed into anmy month, eyes, ears, ;nd nose and ifor onte ihonible nmomcllent tl.e rnly doubt I had was whether I was to Ie duo'xned or 1isuosated. Comining to thel ntlitce, I aswIm to lald, maki:ig no further attempt to walk in dead water, which, I am inclined tobelieve, is almost impossible.
