When'er I see thy gentle face, 1 scarce can cheek the rising tear, As in each feature fair I trace Thy likeness to my sister dear; And if, perchance, I Meet thiue eye, So likeber's long dear to me, I cannot help but sadly sigh To think I have no claim on thee. In thoughts of the sweet visions rise Of many a distant, happy day— But oftener tears bedim ray eyes, For her, my sister, far away ; I seem to hear her softly sigh For her dear brother's wonted kiss— To see the tear-drop in her eye, His once familiar voice to miss. When died my mother. I a boy, My sister soothed my wild despair, And since, my dearest earthly joy, Has been her every grief to share. No need to say she's dear to me, Her image in my heart I wear, That loving her, I too love thee, Her likeness in each feature fair. Thy form, thy every look and smile, Thy eyes—liAe angels' eyes above, So free from every worldly guile— Are all like those of her I lor*. No wouder then—sh e far away. Perhaps in spirit-land above— My every hope should turn to thee For consolation and for lore. Fort Lapwai, I. T., Oct. 7,1863. A Thought on M«n. In the long past,, what time fair science smiled A new born thing in helpless infant state, One sang of all inventive Man—how great His skill of art; how he could render mind The rough maned horse, and bison of the wild. O'erpasses the surging deep, could subjugate Earth, sea and air, all things—save only Fate How language he had lernt,and laws compiled. Yet scarce the poet's prophet-sonl divined A11 that the coming years should bring to light, When matter had been taught to yield to mind, And science gained the acme of her might. But what though all else yield him victory ? Man's victor still is Hades—and shall be. A gallant soldier was once heard to say that his only measure of courage was this: Upon the first fire I look immediatlv upon myself as a dead man ; I then fight the re mainder of the day as regardless of danger as dead man should be. All my limbs I car ry out of the field I regard as so much saved out of the fire. " You have a considerable floating popu lation in this village, haven't you?" asked a stranger of one of the citizens of a village on the Mississippi. " Well, yes, rather." was the reply ; "about half the year the water is up. to the second story windows." Vulcan. — Vulcan, the celestial artist, was the son of Jupiter and Juno,—some said of Juno alone. He was born lame; and his morher was so displeased at the sight of him, that she fluDg him out of heaven He was saved by the nymphs Thetis and Eurynome, who kept him for nine years in a cavern un der the ocean; during which time hesfashion ed for them a great variety of trinkets and ornaments. All the houses, chariots and armour, and other articles in Olympus, were made hy Vul can. He also made various wonderful things for his own favorites, or those of Jupiter and the other gods, among men. Alcinous king of the Phoeacians had golden dogs, which guarded his house; and ^Eetes king of Col chis brass-footed bulls, which guarded the Golden Fleece,—all made by Vulcan. Vul can formed for Minos king of Crete a brazen man named Talos, who compassed the isle three times a day to guard it from invasion. Talos's mode of destroying people was to make h'mself red-hot in the fire, and then embrace them. The servants assigned to Vulcan bv the poets are the three Cyclopes, Brontes (Thun der), Steropes(Lightning), and Arges(Fiame). His wife was Venus, the goddess of beauty. That Same Greek Fire.— Dr. Richard son, a scientific gentleman in England, in a late work, makes the following remarkable declaration : At last that which the English nation, or ratter Government, refused to study as a means of warfare, has been turned to practical account in America. Liquid fire has found its wav into Charleston, and the question is, Will its application stop there P It is folly to rest content with saying that the practice is barbarous. Barbarity pertains to the use of bayonets and swords and grenades, and all else; the points to he recognized are the facts—that the Americans are using this liq uid fire; that they will soon find means of improving their first attempts; that the sue cessfui employment of one liquid will suggest others, and that suddenly we may be aroused to the unpleasant consciousness that all our great armaments, all our forces, all our ships, all our men, are at the mercy of a foe who has iearned a new art in war, in which science has sap pad courage, and in which brute force stands hut second in the contest. Let us have no mincing of the matter so essential to B, it ish interests as the application of liquid fire in warfare. The worst cannot be spoken too early; if shell charged with liquid fire were to be used by America in a war with England there is not a wooden ship in the whole of our marine service, royal or mercantile, that would ever be absolutely safe after a single shell, even if a rifle, had thrown the treach erous and terrible combustible on to the sails, decks or quarters ; while there is not a town or fortress within the range of American cannon that might not be destroyed by fire from a few well directed shots.

Drawings of the Moon —Prof. Phillips has succeeded in obtaining drawings of the moon seen through a new telescope with a six-inch object glass. They exhibit many new and striking features, showing a volcanic ac tion of which we of this world have no con ception. What would we think if our whole continent was a collection of craters, with hills rising out of th«ir midsts and divided by radiating ravines of awful depth ? The only approach to any such scenery in this warld is to be found in the Cordilleras of our ^old regions. Slander. —Against slander there is no de fense. Hell cannot boast of such a fiend, nor man deplore so foul a foe. It stabs with a smile. It is pestilence walking in darkness, preading contagion far and wide, which the most wary traveler cannot avoid. It is the heart-searching dagger ef the assassin. It is a poisoned arrow whose wound is incurable. It is as fatal as the sting of the most deadly asp—murder is its employment, innocence its prey, and ruin its sport. « ! A BACHELOR'S REVERIE Fifty to-day ! Fifty—little chance now of my having a wife and a house full of "little re sponsibilities," as Fanny Wright calls them. Heigho ! I'm getting tc be—no, not a midle agee gentlemen, for I've been that any time the last ten years; no, I'm a gentleman de dining in years, and may advertise for a housekeeper without giving a handle to scan dal to make free with my character. Twenty five years ago, and I should have affronted the man who foretold that I should be sitting this | day in arm chair, newspaper in hand, break fast before me, one foot on a cushion and only one cup and two eggs on the table. News papers are stupid things; I'd much rather chat over my morning meal. Why the deuce am I not married? Nobod} -makes tea fit to drink now ; and the toast never comes up to me hot. What capital tea Lucy Smith used to make ! Poor Lucy ! I wonder-what made me think of her ? People said Lucy and I would certainly make a, match; and so we should, I suspect.if it hadn'tl been for that cursed cousin of hers. I'm sure she would have married me "had I asked her; hut I kept putting off from day to day, and he I f cut me out, and be hanged to him. I was a young gentleman, then, and young then, although I could marry whenever I liked. Ihey wentj away to the east and got rich ; he's a member of Congress, and she has grown fat, and rides about in her carriage, with two or three grown up daughters—pretty girls, too, as am told, but they'll never be like their mothei: I've a ribbon of hers, that she used to wear around her slender waist, and I bribed her little brother to steal it for me, with the loan of my fowling-piece; and some times, when it rains, and I feel sentimental, I take it out of my writing desk and look at it awhile and think I'll throw it into the fire 1 1 J , 4 ~ v j ut * d°nt though; and there it is yet in the j C PPYO f rlvn ntiiw m 1*1% . _*t_ U _ * . 1 secret drawer, with my mother's picture, and the last lock of my own hair, They make capital »ig*„ow, by-the-way ; nobody neema I to suspect that my curls are not the natural' crop. They used to say that my hair was beautiful, and I'm almost certain 'she cut off a lock once, when I was asleep on the sofa I wonder whether she's lost any or her sulen any or her sple did teeth ; mine have stood it out pretty well but they're going. Old Parmfly said hers would last a long time, and he ought to know. I must go to him and get him to make me a couple of new ones. What shall I do with myself to-day? Ive given up business, and made money enough to last me mj lime. I've no one to leave it,, to when I'm gone. Where's the use of going on adding dollar to dollar, and acre to acre, unless one has children to set up! Nine mar riages in the paper to-day! Nine husbands and nine wives created since yesterday morn morn ing I dare say they will all have young sprouts—say four apiece on an average; that's thirty-six little mouths to be stuffed with bread and butter, and seventy-two little feet to buy shoes for, and two hundred and eighty-eight little fingers to wash and keep clean ! No fool of a j jb that for the nine papas and mam mas! 1 was always remarkably fond of chil dren. There is a newly married counple moved into the house over the way, on purpose to plague me, I do believe; they seem to be very fond of each other, and dreadfully hap py. There's a gig comes to the door every afternoon, and he hands wife into it so care fully, aud she smiles at him so brightly as they drive off, that I am almost tempted to wish they might break their necks before they come back. That's a nice looking girl that has come to stay with them during the honey moon ; she's the bride's sister or something, I dare say ; the prettiest foot and the most roguish eyes I've ever seen—except Lucy Smith's. I wonder if she's engaged to be engaged married; I don't see any very suspicious young men come to the door and-. But what the deuce is to me whe'her she is or not? Im an old bachelor, and must go down to the gr.ve without leaving any one to cry for me I should like, though, to see the girl nearer it is easy enough to get introduced into the house, and though I'm too old to marry, there is no reason that I know of, why an old fellow like me shouldn't do th* polite thing to a new comer int th* neighborhood. I've a new coat coming home, that my artist says, will make me look fifteen years younger—rather imper tinent, by the way. And I am so amaz ingl old, after all When I set down to break fast, I felt rather blueish, and thought myself quite a Methusaleh. Poh, no such thing; I can walk as briskly as ever—almost—I can ride, sing, dan—, no, I'd better leav* out the dancing, but what of that? I'm a good looking, middle aged man, tired of liv ing alone, and hang me, but 1*11 make one more try for the ring, if I die for it. There's a pretty girl over the way, and I'll send over a basket of grapes with my compliments. How near akin laughter is to tears was shown by Reubens, with a single stroke of his brush, turned a laughing child in a paint ing to one crying; and our mothers, without being great painters, have often brought us in like manner from joy to grief hy a single stroke. Rrigham Young, in one of his recent Sun day "sermons," bragged of the beauty o* his wives, while one of his "brethren" elaiced to borejifty-nine children, and defied any of the followers of the faith to show a more pro lific record.

Eternal vigilance is the price of Liberty and there is no use in trying to cheapen the ar ticle by higgling. We would make no reflections on nunne ries, but Joshua is said hy the Bible to have been the son of a "Nun." It matters not how little account we are held in by those who are of none. As the pearl ripens in the obscurity of its shell, so riuens in the tomb all the fame that ' of suffering, The nearest resemblance in opinions, if we is truly precious. Poetry should always be chaste. The Muses should be as slow to loosen the zone as the Graces are. There are various kinds of greatness. Most of those who profess one kind are ready to acknowledge no other. Little men like little birds are attracted and caught hy false light. It is far hetter to suffer than lose the power could trace every line of it, would be found ar more divergent than the nearest in human far more divergent than the nearest inhuman countenances. The best language in all countries is that which is spoken by intelligent men of too much request in society for deep study. Good morals may not always be good poli tics, but bad morals can never be. Lovers can kiss a great deal of 6ense into empty words. Even prosaic men who wear grief long will get to wear it at last as a hat with a flower stuck in it.

This is the second time be has beaten Joshua Ward, heretofore the bully oarsman. oarsman. Greed of Gold. —When Napoleon, about 1811, desired to build a palace for the King of Rome near the Barrier de Fassy, the shop of a poor cobbler stood in the way. Simon having learned what was going on, demanded twenty thousand francs for his tenement.— The admistrator hesitated a few days, and then decided to give it; but Simon, goaded by the greed of gain, now asked forty thousand francs. The sum was more than two thou sand times its value, and the demand was scouted. An attempt was made to chang* the frontage, but being found impossible, they went again to the cobbler, who had raised his price to sixty thousand francs. He was of fered fifty thousand, but refused. The Em peror would not give a franc more, and pre ferred to change his plans. The speculating son of St. Crispin then saw his mistake, and offered his property for fifty thousand francs, iorty thousand, thirty thousand, coming down at last to ten thousand. The disaster of 1814 happened, and all thoughts for a palace for the King of Rome were abandoned. Some months after, Simon sold bis shop for on* hundred and fifty francs and in a few daya alter he was removed to an insane asvium. Disappointed avarice had driven him crazy. Gen. Scott. —A West Point letter saya: General Scott enjoys excellent health consid ering his years. He is the earliest riser ia the house and first at the breakfast tabie. After breakfasting, at seven o'clock, he pro ceeds to the library, where he is daily engaged in preparing his autobiography for th* W orld's history. SUI8UN City.—T he Rev. W. R. Gober, in late sermon at Suisun, gave his hearers a piece of information which may result hereaf* ter in their spiritual good. He said: "I have lived in a great many little towns, and a great many country places; but I have never lived in any town or country place where there are so very few religious men and so small a number of those who belong to th* church, as there are in Suisun. I must add, however, that I have never been treated with better respect than I have received here. I have never been treated disrespectfully in any one instance since my residence among you." There is one town, we think, which is more ungodly in a worldly sense, and thut is Fol som, Sacramento county. We have bees credibly informed that the minister in that place has manifested the nerve to preach • sermon in the presence of one hearer.— Jk psal "
