The American Girl. Don't Stay Long. Robert Emmet and his Bride. 'Twas tlie evening of a lovely day—the last dav for tlie noble and ill-fated Kmmet. A vomit; lady stood at the castle irate, and desired admittance into the dungeon. She was closely veiled, and the keeper could not imagine who she was, nor why one of such proud hearing should be a suppliant at the prison door, llowei cr. lie granted the boon, led her to the dungenti, opened the massive iron door, then closed it again, and the lov ers were alone. He was leaning against the prison wall, with a downcast head, and his arms folded on his breast, tiently sin 1 rais ed the veil from her face, and Emmet turn ed Ins face upon all that earth contained for him — the girl whose sunny brow, in the days of boyhood, had been his polar star—the maiden who had .sometimes made him think “ the world was all sunshine.’’ The clnnk imrof the heavy ehaiiis soiiude I like a death knell to her ears and she wept like a child. Emmet said lint little, yet lie pressed her warmly to his hosom. and their feelings held a silent meeting—siieli a meeting, perchance, as is held in Heaven, only there we part no more. In a low voice he besought her not to forget linn when the cold grave received his inanimate laxly lie spoke of by-gone ,|avs—the happy hours of childhood, when his hopes were bright and glorious, and he concluded by mpiesting her sometimes to visit the places and scenes that were halloa ed to his memory from the days of infancy ; and should the world pronounce his mime with scorn and contempt, he prayed she would siill ding to him with nlleetion, mid remember him when others should lorget. Hark ! the church bell sounded, and lie remembered the hour ol execution. The turnkey entered, and alter dashing the tears from his eyes, laid separated them Irom their long embrace, ami led the lady from the dim goon. A t the entrance she turned, and I heir eves met they could not say farewell the door swung upon it> heavy hinges, and they parted forevi r. No ! not forever ! is there no I leaven '!

When ties have been formed on earth, close burning lies —what is more heart rend ing and agonizing to the spirit than to litid that, at last, the beloved one i- snatched n wav, and all our loie is given to a “ passing Holier.” Enough- 'lie died—tin* betrothed of Robert Emmet — I lie lovely Sarah < in run.

Home and love ! twin strains that have been sung in every key, yet have the fresh ness and delight of novelty hovering around them still. Home is a inugie word to myriad hearts, hut to none does it bring the halm more purely than to the honest poor. In the guy world it is hut one of the many pleasures that surround the rich, and too often i- its ipiiet elmrin impaired and even lost timid the giddy whirl ; hut to siieli a- our poor labor er it is the haven of rest tor his toil-wearied limits, and all the world lo liis humble heart, tor there dwells the only one who shares his trials, or cares for hishappiness,—the only one mi earth to whom he ean recount his troubles, sure of a sympathizing ear, — the only one who will not llout him lor his oiiaiut thoughts, or set constantly before him tlie difference between his lot and that of the favored ones of earth. Could lie lint read the heart of many of those glittering objects of his admiration, the toil-stained son of poverty would pity them, for with all their gilded palaces and gorgeous furniture -they hair no uomi. ! F1.our.N1 1 I’ottku. Hn Thursday, Aug. •jstli, the long pending dispute about “ Lit tle Florence” w as brought to a dose in I)ow nieville .fudge Smith deciding Hint it was best to t on -la'11 her to the keeping of Mrs. .Jessup, sister of Kstelle Hotter, whom the Surra (.'thzrn speaks of as a lady in every respect (pialilied for the responsible trust.— The conditions are that Flory is to be taken from the stage and sent to school until she shall have, obtained an age of discretion at which she cun choose for herself. I lie trial is said to la ve been a deeply interesting one, in the course of which the imputed stain ol illegitimacy w as removed from the little girl. After the decision, Flora gravely iuijuired, “ And who do I belong to uow ?” The Acquittal of Herbert. The N. V. Ihy /W-, speaking of the ac quittal of Herbert, the murderer says : We have seen no act in \\ ushington which deserves more general or determined con demnation than the acquittal of Mr. Her bert, of California, for killing the waiter at Willard's Hotel We will not sav that Mr Herbert is aridity of deliberate murder, but he most assuredly committed manslaughter, and should be punished accordingly. The very fact that he is a member of Congress i- a reason whv justice should be meted out to him without favor. We shall have as poor an opinion of the administration of jus tice in Washington as in our own city or even in San Francisco, if such men as Her bert escape the penally of their crimes.— Some reekless presses have been disposed to make political capital out of this occurrence, by representing that Mr. Herbert is a south erner, whereas he hails from California.— They have then asserted that he was born in tin' South ! as if all the villains in the world came from that section. It makes no dif ference where Herbert was born, his crime is the same and h® ought to have been pun ished for its commission. There is no piliti cal feature to the case. Herbert’s acquittal is simply the result of powerful inHuence, and of oU c counsel against poverty. This is the simple tact of the ease. We have seen the effects of this in our city time and again, and unless there is re form in this matter, an indignant people will be aroused, w ho will sweep the pretended ad ministrators of justice away, as they have in California. Less than three years ago there were two men confuted in the Tombs, in this city, on the charge of murder. One was a Frenchman, of considerable wealth and very inlliicntial connections. He shot a man in open day in this city, without ex ease, and evidently with premeditation.— The other was a an Irishman who was charg ed w ith killing his w ife, though there was no positive proof against him. Flic writer of this conversed with both these men during their coutincincu', and he was forcibly im pressed with the probable innocence of the Irishman, but with the certainty of the guilt of the Frenchman. In the former case the proof was unquestionable, in the latter it was, at the best doubtful, lint mark the se quel. The Frenchman’s friends rallied around him ; the best lawyers in the city were ob tained, and lie got off w ith a short imprison ment for manslaughter, of which lie was re lieved by the (inventor. The Irishman had a small grocery up-town, at the tune of his arrest, lie turned it, over to his lawyer, who sold it out, pocketed the money, and h it for parts unknown. The poor man thus had not a cent left to prosecute his defence. The court assigned him some boxwood conn ■el, and he was convicted and hanged!— Such u. tlie difference between money and no money V ml tteii is the ease of Herbert. Ili- acquittal is a subject of interest to ev ery person, for it is another melancholy evi deuce of the laxity of justice in our courts, and may be a forerunner oi some reign of terror. Tin California Farmer , in announcing its entrance into its sixth volume, gives utter ance to the under lidded patriotic tinij truly Californian sentiments In referring to the kind of men the people should elect to office, the editor writes : “(Mirs is cmphulicully the “working man’s journal.'’ We would advocate and defend a cause that should elevate the work ing man. We would have the working man in authority in our halls of legislation, in our offices o| honor and trust the tanner, the mechanic the manufacturer, and the mer chant. “ We would have men identified with our country alone, till ourolliecs ; men who have homes, wives, children, brothers, sisters, houses, lands, farms, workshops, men who have something to work for, to legislate for, tortile for, something (olive for, beside mere political preferment and the spoils of office We would have men in office, not polilmans, merely. “ We proscribe no man for his religious, political or sectional feelings. We would have him enjoy these freely, but we would have him or them who occupy office men of enlarged and liberal views, who can net at all times for “the greatest good of the greatest possible number,” men who shall net for the nnnilry not for parly. Such men California now needs. She is in her greatest extremity, and her only hope now rests with the working men of our State, to them tdl eyes are turned. Our cities mid villages -warm with men seeking office, they will not labor, they never labor, they are drones in the great hive of liumnii in dustry, and are consuming that store of food that, should be preserved for the coming w inter, and now is the time to tlr.re out Ifie drum s and save the food for our little ones. A IH:vrn I»kt. i.. — A pretty story is fold of the easting of the bell for the church of St Mugdelen, at llreslati. When the metal was just ready to be poured into the mould, the ehiel founder went to dinner, und forbade his apprentice, under the pain of death, to I ouch the vent by which the metal was con veyed. The youth, curious to see the oper ation, disobeyed orders, the whole of the inct ttl ran into the mould. The enraged mas ter, returning from Ins meal, slew the ap prentice on tlie spot. On breaking away the mould, lie found that lie had been too hasty, for the bell was cast sis perfectly as possible. When it was hung in its pluce, the master hud been sentenced to death by the sword for the murder of his apprentice, and he entreated the authorities that he might be ullowed to hear it once before he died. His petition was granted, and the bell has since been ruug at every execution. Woman's Influence A Shame. It is said—by the luw-und-murder papers— that when Judge Terry appeared in Sacra mento, after tiis release, the “ladies threw garlands, fair hands were clapped, and ma ny a manlv shunt rang out on the stillness of tlu* night.’’ We are curious to know it Mrs Hopkins was in the galaxy of bounty, or Mrs King, or Mrs. Richardson, or any of the Indies widowed by the assassin? If the w ife id' Terry was there, or his sister or daughter, or any of his kith or kin, and if they shouted with exultation at the release of their friend and protector, we should hon or t Item for so doing-it would he the prompt ings of woman's nature, to cling to the lov ed through evil and through good report a principal that Hod and the ungels honor, hut why should the ladies of Sacramento bestow the guerdon id’ their -miles on an in dividual whom accident ora hone prevented from committing murder. Perhaps the wa ving of handkerchiefs was in honor of the triumph of the doctor over death because a benign Providence diverted the knife from the seat of life ! Talk of woman's influence ! The kind hearted man who sits all night by his com panion's dying bed, ministering eou>olation to n fainting spirit is unknown, unhouored and neglected ; but lie who sheds his broth er’s blood, either in the duel or the melee, and eseapes strangulation, is pitied and lion ized, and courted by the ladies oi California, and wreaths of (lowers are strung around the neck that quivered and shrank with the constriction of a ghostly Imlter. Hail to woman’s intluence ! Who would not honor his wife, mother, or sister, who with her tail' hands would build a triumphal arch for the unsuccessful assassin to pass under? Let us Imve another chapter on “ woman's inlln cnee !" Turn over another leaf: Sin and shame have blighted a household, and the sinner sits I iv her deserted fireside ; a Christiau foot fall is heard at the door, and her sister whispers through the crevices Go, and sin no more, but •* Itut lir not down to Hleo|i beneath the trees \\ here liuiimu t rin ks are seen." And ibis is Christian consolation 1 O ! if ever amid the songs of angels, a word of blasphemy is uttered in Heaven, it is when the Angel of Mercy returns from earth and tells of the cruelty of woman to the erring and repentant, tlmt when earth undairniid chambers of the sold are full of the spee tivs of remorse, in all this bright, glorious world, overhung hy the how of promise, there cannot be found one human breast w here the throbbing temples of guilt and re pentaiice can rest. -Sirrri Cili:es. \\ asiii\uton\s Last Mumknts (Govern or w ise, of Virginia, delivered an oration on the fourth of duly, in wliieh he thus de scribed the last moments of W ashington : “ lie died ns he had lived, and what a beautiful economy there was in Ids death! Not faculty was impaired, not an error had marred the tneorof Ins life. At sixty-six, not quite three score and ten, he was taken uwiiy, whilst his example was perfect lie took cold, slighted the symptoms, saying, 'l,et it go as it came.’ In the morning of the 14lIt of Iteeernber, I7!*tt, he felt severe illness ; called in his overseer, Mr IPiw lings, to bleed him. lie was agitated, ami Wash ingtou said to him, ‘Don’t lie afraid.' When itb<hit to tie up his arm, he said with dillii'ii11y, ' More.’ After all efforts had failed, lie designated the paper he meant for his will, t lieu l it rued to Tol lias I .ear and said, ‘ I find I am going ; my breath cannot rini tinuc long, 1 believed from the first it would be fatal. Do you arrange and record all my military letters mid papers ; arrange my accounts and settle my books, us you know more about, them than any one else, and let Mr Rawlings finish recording my other letters which he has begun.’ lie tween o and ti o’clock lie said to his physi cian. Dr Craik, 'I feel myself going; you liiol better not take any more trouble nhout me, but let me go oil’ quietly; I cannot last, long ! shortly after, again ho said I believed from my lirst attack I should not survive it ; my hrcntli romint lust long.' About 10 o’clock, he niude several attempts to speak to Mr. bear, and ut Inst said,‘1 am just going. Have me decently buried, and do not let my body be pul into the vault in less than two days after I am dead.’ I,ear savs, ‘I bowed assent.’ lie looked at me again ami said, ‘Do you understand ine ?’ I replied, ‘Yes sir.’ ‘’Tin well’ And these were his Inst words. .Inst lief ore lie expired In* fell his own pulse ; his hand fell from his w list, and George Washington was no more." Irour partixau papers mean what, they sav, we are led to believe that there is not a single Ihichiiimu, Filmore, or Fremont man in (.'ulifoniia. Whom do our people intend voting for, we would like to know? Oh, these politicians ! “ lb.vnt to mu Ii.i,i\srmors Dkah.”— The lh rnbl publishes a picture of one of the departed members of the law and niiir der party, in the net of attending a \ igi lance bull, and demanding a partner for the next dance. It is not surprising tlmt those who were willing to admit such men to terms of social equality in their life, should imagine them claiming like privileges utter “ shuffling o(T this mortal coil.” Hut a few months have elupsed since the names of these worthies might have been seen in the lists of “ first citizens" attached to complimentary benefit and bull cards, and if Swedenborg's theory lie correct, it is not wouderful that they still attempt to keep up the good old custom.
