THE CRIMEA. "Give us a song," the soldier cried, The outer trenches guarding, When the heated guns of the camp allied Grew weary of bombarding. The dark Redan, in silent scoff, Juiy grim and threatening under, And the tawny mound of the Malakoff No longer belched its thunder, "Give us a song," the guardsmen say, "We storm the forts to-morrow ; Sing while we may, another day Wll bring enough of sorrow." They lay along the battery's side, Below, the smoking canuon ; Brave hearts from Severn and from Clyde, And from the banks of Shannon! They sang of love, aud not of fame, Forgot 'twus Britains glory— Each heart recalled a different name, But all sang Annie Laurie ! Voice after voice caught up the song, Until its tender passion Rose, like an anthem rich and strong, Their battle-eve confession. Beyond, the darkening ocean burned The bloody sunset embers ; And the Crimean valleys learned How English love remembers. And once again the fires of hell Raiued on the Russiain quarters— H'ith scream of shot and burst of shell, And bellowing of the mortars! An Irish Nora's eyes are dim, For a singer dumb and gory, An English Mary mourns for him W ho sang of Annie Laurie 1 Ah! soldiers to your honored rest, Your love and glory bearing ; The bravest are the lovliest, The loving are the daring. Bayard Tatloh. OLD SONG, Could a man be secure That his life would endure. As of old a thousand long years, What arts might be know! What acts might he do! i And all without hurry or care. But we that have but span-long lives, The thicker must lay on the pleasure, And since time will not, cannot stay We'll add the night unto the day, 1 ' And thus we'll fill: the measure. . ' — : f!: Heavy Storm of Wind.— A telegram fromYreka, November 18th, says a heavy wind-storm passed over Trinity Valley, Scott's Mountain and the upper portion of Scott's Valley last Saturday, whieh did much damage to the telegraph line in those sections. Alto gether, more than a mile of the line and poles were blown down. In many places, huge trees were felled across it.

She was. ac cording to some accounts born before her brother, and aided the labor of her mother. This goddess presided over the chase ; she loved to follow with the bow and arrows the flying game over the mountains, attended by her train of huntress-nymphs. Diana was never married ; and she was renowned for her unblemished chastity. As we have seen in the instance of Callisto, she punished severely the breach of this virtue in her nymphs, Actaeon, one of the grandsons of Cadmus, chanced as he roamed through the woods du ring the heat of the day, to approach the cave and fount in the vale of Gargaphia, whither Diana was in the habit of retiring to bathe with her nymphs. Unfortunately for the youth the goddess was there at the time : ashamed of being surprised in this situation by a mor tal, and incensed at the unintentional intru sion, she took up some water in her hand, and flinging it on Actaeon, turned him into a stag. His own dogs happened to catch a sight of him, gave chase, and running him down tore him to pieces. Chione, the daughter of Dtedalion, was loved by both Apollo and Mercury. Her son by the former god was Philammon, a cele brated musician; to the latter she bore Au tolycus, the notorious cattle-stealer. Far from being ashamed, Chione gloried in having gained the love of two gods, and she presum ed to speak disparagingly of the beauty of Diana compared with her own. The goddess to punish her, shot her through the tongue with one of her arrows. Niobf, the daughter of Tantalus and wife of Amphion, being the mother of seven sons and as many daughters, proudly set herself above Latona, who had borne two children The goddess complained to her bow-bearing offspring; and soon the seven sons of Amhi on lay slain by the arrows of Apollo and his daughters by those of Diana. Niobe. stiffen ing with grief, was turned into stone. (Eneus king of Calydon, having neglected to make offerings to Diana along with the other gods at the termination of harvest, she sent in revenge a monstrous boar to ravage the fields of Calydon. This gave occasion to the celebrated Calydonian Hunt, hereafter to be related. The huntress-goddess was in process of time identified with the moon-goddess, Sele na or Luna; with Hecate, the goddess of the night; with Ilithya, assisted at births; and with Proserpine, queen of Erebus. Apollo was in like manner made one with the Sun It is, however, highly probable that Apollo was originally a sun-god, and his sister a moon-goddess. VENUS. . VENUS. Venus, the goddess of love and beauty, was the daughter of Jupiter and Dione. Others say that Venus sprang from the foam of the sea; the gentle Zephyr wafted her along the waves to the ilse of Cyprus, where she was received and attired by the Seasons, and then led to the assembly of the gods. Venus possessed an embroidered girdle, called Cestus (embroidered), which had the gift of inspiring love. Her favorite birds were swans, doves and sparrows, teams of which drew her chariot. The plants sacred to her were the rose and the myrtle. The husband of this lovely goddess was the lame artist Vulcan ; but conjugal fidelity was not her virtue. Her intrigue with Mars has been already noticed ; and Baechus and Mercury could, it is said, also boast of her love. Mortals, too, enjoyed the love of Venus. Smitten with the charms of Anchises, a hand some Trojan youth, she visited him among the sheep-cotes on Mount Ida, and became the mother of the renowned JDneas. Offended with Myrrha daughter of king Cinyras, Venus inspired her with love for her own father. Cinyras, to punish the guilt of bis daughter, pursuing her with his drawn sword, she was changed by the gods into a myrrh-tree. In course of time the tree open ed and gave birth to a babe who was named Adonis. Venus gave him to Proserpine to rear, who delighted with his beauty, refused to part with him. The matter was referred to Jupiter, who directed that he should spend a part of the year with each goddess. Adonis was *t length gored by a wild boar, and died of the wound, and Venus turned him into the flower called Anemone. The fair maid Atalanta was warned by the oracle to abstain from marriage, at it would be fatal to her. Being pressed by many suit ors, to get rid of them she proposed * race, and that whoever surpassed her in swiftness should have her hand, but those who were vanquished should be put to death. As the speed of Atlanta was unrivaled, numerous youths had paid the penalty of their rashness, when Hippomenss, a son of Neptune, chal lenged her to a trial of swiftness. Atalanta warned him in vain; he persisted; and in voking the aid of Venus, was given by the goddess three golden apples. In his race he threw from time to time an apple on the grpund; Atalanta ran out of the course to pick them up, and Hippomenes first reached the goal. The'victorious youth forgot to sac rifice to whom he owed his success. Venus inspired him and his fair bride with sudder. passion as they passed the cavern of Cybele, who turned them into lions for profaning it.

Not until r 11 that made life beautiful has been swept away—not until she has yielded one by one the golden dream of her girlhood, sacrificed them all up on the world's cold altar—not until each bright hope that gilded her path has set. in darkness—not until the sun of her life has gone down to rise no more—not until the heart is closed, and upon its portals is written Bit oen! o la 1 orul (n» n h o m Kr.t* /l,1 ! desolate," and the chambers, deserted oy their fairy guests, echo ever more sadly to the music of the past—not until then does woman pour out her soul in song! Didst ever think of this, ye whe delight in her strains P The careless world read her thrilling songs and admire the genius of the author, little heeding how each word was written as with a pencil of fire upo.i her burn ing brain ere they were transferred to paper. They know not how in the lone night vigil, amid prayers and tears, was born the deter mination to buffer and be strong—to win for herself a name to which the world in homage should bow, and with the praise and adulation of the crowd fill the void in her heart. So she goes with a proud cold smile upon her lip, and magic words are traced by her penwords, that thrill the heart and stir the spirit's depths. The meed of prafse is her's at last, and she takes the wreath that fame offers, binds it upon her aching brow, and seems to be content; but when she turns from the crowd and gains the seclusion of her own room, the cold smile fades from her lips, the proud head is bowed in anguish, while the hands are clasped tightly over her bursting heart, and her pale lips murmer, "All, is van ity !" Sportive words flow from her of Sportive words flow from her pen, carrying light and sunshine to many homes; smiles greet their appearance, and hearts go forth to meet them gladly, and the world lauds the genius of the woman whose magic have such power over the hearts of others, little deem ing them but the echo of past joys ; and that while memory brought pictures from her treasury to the lone watcher, she, with a low wail of smothered anguish upon her lips, pen ned those lightsome words, to cheat the world into the belief that her own heart was blithe and gay. Say you that this is a fancy sketch ? Let the history of the many gifted daughters of song answer. Have not the words that have most thrilled our hearts been but the sad echo of some happy past—the plaintive wail of some broken shrine ? Oh, envy not gifted ones of earth! Seek not to bind upon your brow the laurel of fame, for on woman's brow, it is hut a crown of thorns. Better far to live humble and un known to the great world the center of a lov ing home, than to be coining thoughts from out of a bleeding heart, to scatter among the careless crowd! Envy not the gifted ones, Who thrill with magic words ; Know ye not each line is wrung From the crushed heart's aching chords? Know \e not a mother's heart Ne'er feels the power of song Till it has felt the poisoned dart, Aud learned to suffer and be strong? Married the Wrong Woman. —A short time ago a candidate for matrimony arrived in town, and straightway repaired to the office of our obliging County Clerk, for the purpose of obtaining a marriage certificate. The Clerk.misunderstood the name of the fair one who had been making inroads on the affec tions of the applicant, and consequently in serted the wrong name of the female party who was to be tied by the silken cords. The intended groom was so delighted with the prospect before him that he did not stop to read the document, after it was placed in his hands, but forking over the two dollars he thrust the legal privilege in his pocket. Gain ing an audience with the object of his heart, the two repaired to the house of the clergy man, where the document was presented, which in the eyes of the minister appearing! perfectly satisfactory, the two were united in the holy bands of wedlock. The next morn of of ing upon seating themselves at the breakfast, the table of one of our hotels, the groom com- j menced reading the record of his marriage in the morning papers, and found the printers had him married to another woman. Thrust ing his hand in his pocket, he pulled out the marriage license, when lo and behold, to his utter astonishment he discovered that the Clerk had committed the grave error of in serting the wrong name of the intended bride. Turning to the object of hi* affections, and with an excited yet tremulous voice, he exclaimed : " Maria, a mistake hae been made, and I am married to the wrong woman. You are not my lawful wife." Maria gave a glance at the legal document, and with a half drawn eigh. answered: " It's no use fretting, Jeremiah—it's too late now."—[Marysville Express. was did was now tion on the her Rather Rich.—A statement is published to the effect that rock from a Santiam quartz lode hae assayed $ 100.000 in gold, a ton, for the richest epecimens, and "several hundred dollar!, with considerable silver, for the poor est."

Dying for a Kiss.-—A n inquest was held lately on the body of a young man who, in the attempt to snatch a kiss from the unwill ing lips of a girl, fell down stairs and killed himself.

A short time since, William Dunlop, of Gairbraid. Colborne township, Canada, died, leaving the following as his last will and testament. It is now contested in chancery, in the district of Huron, on the ground that its author was iner.r.e : In the name of God, amen. I. William Dunlop, ot Gairbraid, in the township of Col • ... . .. 1 m borne and district of Huron, Western Cana da, Esquire, being in sound health and my mind just as usual, which my friends who flatter me say is no great shakes at the best of times, do make this my last will and testa ment, a» follows : ment, : Revoking, of course, all former wills, 1 leave the property of Gairbraid, and all other landed property I may die possessed of, to my sisttrs Ellen Boyle Story and Elisabeth Boyle Dunlop, the former because she is married to a minister, whom (God help him) she hen pecks; the latter because she is married to nobody, nor is she like to be, for she is an old maid, and not market-ripe ; and also I leave to them and their heirs my share of the stock, and implements on the farm ; provided al ways that the inclosure around ray brother'* grave be reserved, and, if either should die without issue, then the other to inherit the whole. I leave my sister-in-law, Louisa Dunlop, all my share of the household turniture and such traps, with the exceptions hereinafter rue tioned. 1 leave my silrpr tankard to the eldest son of old John, as the representative of the fam ily. I should have left it to old John himself,, but he would melt it down to make temper ance medals, and that would be sacrilege ; however, I leave my big horn snuff-box to him; he can only make temperance horn spoons of that. I leave my sister Jenny my Bible, formerly the property of my great-great grandmother, Bertha Hamilton of Woodhall; and when she knows as much of the spirit as she does, of the letter she will be another Christian than she is. 1 also leave my late brother's watch to my brother Sandy, exhorting him at the same time to give up whiggery, radicalism and oil other sins that do most easily beset him. I leave my brother Allen toy big silver snuff-box, as I am informed he is rather a tie cent sort of a Christian, with a swag-belly and a jolly face. I leave' Parson Chevassie (Maggie's hus band) the small box 1 got fiotn the Sarnia militia, as a small token of my gratitude for the service he has done the family in taking a sister that no man of taste would have taken. I leave John Cadeel a silver tea-pot, to the end that he may drink tea therefrom to com fort him under the affliction of a slatternly wife. I leave my books to my brother Andrew, because he has been so long a jangley wollah, that he may learn to read with them. I give my silver cup, with a sovereign in it, to my sister, Janet Graham Dunlop, because she is an old maid and pious, and therefore will necessarily take to horning, and also my granny's snuff-shell, as it looks decent to see an old woman taking snuff. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal, the 31st day of August, in the year of our Lord 1862. W. Dunlop. Enrolling a Jackass. —The enrolling of ficer of Saulsbury District, Maryland, was very active and thorough in the performance of his duty. One day he went to the house of a countryman and finding none of the male members of the family at home, made inquiry of an old lady of the number and ages ot the family. After naming several the old lady stopped. " is there no one eke asked the offioer, "No," replied she, "none except Billy Bray " Billy Bray ! where's he ?" " He was in the barn a moment ago," said the old lady, j Out went the officer, but could not see the man. Coming back, the worthy officer ques tioned the old lady as to the age of Billy, and want away, after enrolling his name among those to be drafted. Time of the drafting came, and one of those on whom the lot fell was Billy Bray. No one knew him. Where did he live ? The officer who entailed him was called on to produce him; and lo, be hold Billy Bray was a jackass! and atanda now on the list of drafted met), at forming the quota of Maryland. A Bri»k Scotch Lassie. —At an examina tion in the case of a farmer in a Scotch eourl on his sister entering the box to he examined the following conversation took place between her and the opposing agent: " How old are you ? * taid the lawyer.
