The Portsmouth Gazette says the foilowingbeau tiful verses, in manuscript .were discovered among the rubbish of an ancient Cabinet at the Navv- Vard, where they may have been laying for half a century or more. The manuscript bears all the marks of age. What an unwritten history of love, friendship or romance, these lines may indicate : When the ocaau before thee its dark waves is hea ving. And (lie peaks of the distant hills melt on thy sight, Look thro’ the mist to the land thou art leaving. And think of the friend who now bids thee good night. The sky is all clondless, the moon full appearing, Looks on the cold ocean serenely and bright ; Oh ! may her meek halo, thy lonely way cheering, Make thee think of the friend who now bids thee good-night. And fair be the winds as they traverse the ocean, And play around thy bark.be friendly and light; Should they threaten to set the wild waves in commotion, Be they sooth'd by her prayers who now bids thee good-nigut. And oh ! when the horizon behind thee is glowing, And the sun in pavilllous of cloud's setting bright ; A long,lingering look to that setting sun throwing Think, think of the friend who now bids thee good-night. About six months ago, a well-dressed and gentleman]}'looking individual arrived in this city upon the Cleveland train, and register ed his name at one of our principal hotels, as 11. W. Flemington. After remaining a couple of days, he settled his bill, and re marking that business would probably com mand his attendance in a neighboring town for a short period, he left without taking his baggage, which consisted of a trunk and portmanteau. The next day, however, lie drove up to the private entrance of the hotel, accompanied by a lady who he represented as his wife, end who was as such registered. The female, who was in the first tender bloom of woman hood, was but seldom seen during their stay at the hotel, save by those whose avocations enabled them to enjoy this privilege, who pronounced her to be of surpassing beauty. Time passed, and a month had been added to the vortex of the past, when one of those sinister billet dour, in the shape of—not a bill of fare- but a bill foe fare, was presented to Mr. Flemington, On his promise to set tle the matter in a day or two, another week passed, and his quid pro quo for boarding, lodging, et cetera was not forthcoming. The landlord became importunate, and the guest finally told him he would go to Milwaukie, where he had funds, and return with means to liquidate the debt, lie took his portman teau, and after bidding his beautiful compan ion an affectionate, though apparently short adieu, he departed. The sequel is soon told ; lie never return ed,and the victim of his treachery soon found that she was deserted by him for whom she had sacrificed the most precious attributes of woman—her honor and her fame. Con cealment was no longer possible, and the hu miliating admission was confessed that, after a short acquaintance in Cleveland with her seducer, she had forsaken the protecting roof of a confiding father, for one who, un der the promise of marriage, had first des troyed her innocence, and then left her to the cold scorn of an unpitying world. No persuasion, however, could induce her to, or even avow, the name of her family. She might have suffered from want of food, had not some compassionate individuals, who,dis covering that she was well instructed in the art of dress-making, procured her employ- Day after day sped without casting a light on the whereabouts of her seducer, until at length, the fruit of her fatal error became apparent. She was about to become a mo ther, which blessed and holy event of wo man's existence, was to her fraught with ter ror and dismay. No anxious husband would hang with tender solicitude o’er her conch, or hail with paternal kiss the advent of the new born pledge of love. She was alone— alone—and madness took possession of her soul. On Sunday night the inmates of a house on Slate street, where Fanny Dennett (for such was the name she had assumed) board ed, were alarmed by the smell of fire, and hastening to the third floor they found that it proceeded from her room. Hurstingopen the door, a dense smoke was observed to fill the interior, arising from a quantity of wear ing apparel which was slowly mouldering, having been ignited from a charcoal furnace, the embers of which were glowing and emit ting their deadly vapors. Stretched upon the bed lay the forsaken girl insensible and in a short l ime longer her broken heart would have ceased to throb with shame and anguish ; but such a death was not her destiny, for the noble method through which she assayed to destroy her life of misery was, by the timely interven tion of the kind-hearted people with whom she boarded, frustrated. Medical aid was soon procured, and ere long she was pronounced out of danger, since which time she has exhibited a less des pairing turn of mind. 1’oor girl ! she has most bitterly atoned for her one solitary transgression. What shall we say of him— treble murderer 1 the slayer of innocence 1 the murderer of his confiding victim and his own offspring ! Where is retributive jus tice, that such a villia.ii remains unpunish ed ! — Cincinnati Commercial llulldiu. At the Fourth of July dinner in Boston, the following toast was offered : “ Yankee Doodle—the tunc to which our fathers march ed to victory. May their sons, as they com memorate Yankee Doodle-z/oc, never forget what Yankee Doodle did.” < DEVOTED TO THE INTERESTS OF TK1XITV COUNTY. Good-Night. Love, Desertion, Despair. Smith O'Brien’s Return. The Nation congratulates the distinguish ed Patriot, Wm. Smith O'Brien, on his re turn to his native land in the following beautiful and just tribute to his genius and patriotism : “ After eight years spent in prison, or In exile, William Smith O’Brien touched life native soil, a freeman, on Thursday last, — 1 after eight years which have been as eight ages to him and to poor Ireland. The sunk en and spiritless city did not open its gates with the air of its old patriot glory, to the martyr who had suffered so much for the . cause of Ireland -who had been borne away from its bosom with all the barbarous pomp of a successful tyranny, and who had come back unchanged in heart and spirit—un stained in honor by the least compromise or the faintest complaint—the purest patriot, the noblest gentleman that Uod ever breath ed the breath of life into, in this island.— But the welcome which is quietly wafted to his manly heart, not in Dublin alone, but from end to end of the island, though not loud is deep, and strong, and fond indeed.— Kvery honest Irish voice is combined in it. All men of all parties forget their animosi ties to do a quiet homage to t hat nature, so pure/ so chivalrous, of so far loftier standard than that which obtains in Ireland to-day. With one acclaim, the Press, Whig and Tory, as well as Nationalist, express in uni son sentiment full of cordial respect, which are echoed and applauded in every Irish home. If our cad mite faille be less demon strative, less enthusiastsc than it would have been in the old high-spirited days, it is not O'Brien who feels that he comes home to a race humbled, and saddened, and self-de graded, who are hardly lit to be the coun treymen ol one so magnanimous, and unself ish—but who have at least the good taste silently to respect the modest dignity with which he again returns to the station which lie had sacrificed for them, lie is too gen erous to feel aught but a noble and pious pity for the country, so weak and wretched—but this sentiment with which he is welcomed buck, confess a sorrowful truth. It is not yet time to speak of what his future may be amongst us. His character has been tried and canonised by exile, by suHeriug bravely borne, by long sustained adversity, by the sacrifice of home, fame, fortune, family—by that long death in life, more trying to the heart than the cruellest death that infernal ingenuity ever conceived. But sure we are that whenever O’Brien feels it his duty to advise the People of Ire land, he will speak in tones to which they will listen witli a respect more general and more earnest than they have accorded to any voice that has been raised in Ireland, since the day he received sentence of execu tion in the dock of Clonmel, i Let us, too no longer obtrude on the peaceful welcome which lie is this day enjoy i ing in the old house of (Jnhirmoylo- in the happy home from which the sunshine of his smile has been so long absent ; amid the scenes which in the distant forests of Tas mania, or among the glorious relies of (Jrecce, he longed for with a lover’s longing. There the Irish Blessing,and the Irish Wel come, await the Chief, come homo to his | own again.” Aii Adventure in California. The truth of Ihe following talc of adven ture is vouched for to us, by a person who beared it from the lips of one of the party : “ A party of three men started from Sac ramento on a prospecting tour, and, being well supplied with provisions, they pene trated much farther into the mountains than any other party, without meeting witli any success, living men of great perseverance, however, they determined to pursue their course still further, although they hod nearly reached a point where it was believed the foot of white man never trod before. The party begun to feel somewhat discouraged as lack appeared to have abandoned them. They were many miles from any habitation and their provisions were getting very low. A melaneliolly feeling pervaded the whole three, but they kept on until they came to a deep guldi. After making a, thorough ex amination, they returned to Sacramento for ropes and provisions. Having procured these, and loaded their mules with as much as was thought necessary for their purpose, they proceeded again to the guldi. To get down this ravine was the next object.— They lied a rope to a tree, and by this means one after another descended to the bottom, after lowering down tlio provisions and tools. Here they found gold in abund ance, and labored assiduously to secure their pile as soon us possible, not being particu larly in love with their habitation. By a | mere accident, after having been in the ra vine for several weeks, they discovered that the rope lmd been cut by the Indians, or let loose by some other means, which cut olF all hopes of escape. The ledges of rock were perpendicular for hundreds of feet, and climbing up was out of the question. Their provisions rapidly diminished, and starvation stared them in the face. The gold which they had secured was of no use. They had made up their minds that their end was near. Providentially, u party of friendly Indians cutne hy, and hearing the men hal looing they discovered their whereabouts, and immediately went to work to release them. Ropes were obtained, and let down, when they were drawn up one by one, anil their gold also. Being released from their prison, they liberally rewarded the Indians, and went on their way to a more suitable location, thankful for their preservation ■from the awfnl fate with which they had been threatened.— jX. Y. Com. Advertiser. Fremont or the Ride of the one Hundred. In the early part of the year 1S4“ business called me to Alta California. Having been long a resident on the Pacific coast, and being familiar with the language and cus tuoms of the people, I was selected to effect a large contract of hides for one of our east ern firms, the trade being nearly paralyzed at the time by the war then in progress be tween our country and Mexico ; where a handful of noble men were accomplishing deeds which have given them a place in the history by the side of Leonidas and his braves. California had become to us a desideratum ; although their mineral wealth still slumbered, waiting for that enchanter of modern days, Yankee enterprise, their splendid harbors, the contiguity of our pos sessions in Oregon, nnd the facilities for trade with China, were a sufficient incentive. Commodore Stockton lmd hurried up from Callao in the frigate Congress and (ieneral Kearney had crossed the plains from the Missouri River with a force of tinned hunt ers, for the purpose of taking the country and holding it ns a gage for a satisfactory treaty. The native Californians, who lmd long groaned beneath the imposts of a. distant Government and venial Governors, had themselves invited onr overtures ; but a few of their leaders, with a deadly hatred toward the Yankees, and hope of personal reward from Mexico, were assidously endeavoring to stir the people tip to a revolt—in many eases with too great success. Manuel Cas t.io, a wealthy and influential rnnehero noted for his determined opposition to all change, and enmity tollic “ Gringos,” had arranged for an attack on the Pueblos Angelos, the head quarters of Gen. Kearny, held by n small force of marines and volunteers. His agents were in all parts of the country, in llaming the inhabitants and urging them to join him. By some means his plan leaked out. It was at this time nt the ranch of my old friend, Gen. Martinez Vallejo, on the Sonoma Creek ; my companion was Cupt. I> , who lms since espoused one of our host’s daughters. Vallejo was one of the largest landholders in California, owning some sixty square miles, with forty thousand head of cattle and several hundred horses, cattle and horses at that time being a man’s available wealth, lie had been formerly Military Governor of the country, and was considered fair spoil by our people, though in justice I must state that lie was kindly disposed toward the Americans. The house was a substantial edifice of two stories, sur rounded by a corrall, with a stout gateway the household consisted of some twenty per sons. We had retired to rest, and were wrap ped in slumber, when the loud barking of dogs and hallooing of men aroused us sud denly from our dreams. Expecting an at tack from the bear party (a band of desper adoes who infest the country,) nil rushed to the court-yard armed ns well ns the time permitted and in costume, the most pictur esque, ns primitiveness is unusually consid ered so. The General, snbre in hand, came hist ; he challenged the intruders with : “ Qmtn rs hi /” (Who is there.) “ A/nrriiauos raw/ins, umbra, la jmrrla," (Americans and friends,, open the gate,) wits the response, a blow accompnning the words that made the floor shake again. The demand was quickly complied with ; and a band of some fifty men were presented to our view, mounted nnd arrayed as trap pars and hunters, sud armed to the teeth. Foremost among them, on a black mustang, was a small, sinew, dark man, evidently their leader, with “ an eye like Mars to threaten and command,” a countenance expressive oT tlic greatest determination, and a hearing that, notwithstanding his rough dress stamp ed him as one born to command—to lead. This was Fremont. I am an officer of the United States,” said he ; I am on my way to Los Angelos ; I must have horses.” “ Hut ” said Vallejo. ‘‘I said, Sir, I must have them ; yoi) will be recompensed by the Government. I order you, Sir, to deliver to my men what horses you may have in corral.” Finding remonstrance would he of no avail With such a man, Vallejo called his vaqueros and gave the requisite directions. In the meanwhile my friend I) made himself known to Freruont, having met him in Washington. “ 1 have information of Castro's intention to attack Los Angelos. I have six days to reach there before the outbreak, for that I need these horses ; for I must he in ut the deal h.” " Hut the distance ; six hundred miles,” said D The road “ I shall do if,” lie replied, and turned away to supervise his arrangements. In half an hour they departed as uncere moniously as they ciunc, taking with them some three hundred horses, and leaving us astonished ut this riud, to wonder if we were yet awake, or whether it was an unsubstan tial dream. 11 Ta/s diabolatf exclaimed the general, "they have even taken my wife’s saddle horse 1” so thoroughly had Fremont’s Lieut, executed his order. From Sonoma to Verba Bnena, the little hamlet where now stands the Queen City of the Pacific, San Francisco, he augmented his stock to the numlier of fifteen hundred, completely clearing the country ; and then commenced one of the most peculiar rarrs for a fight ever probably known. Barely pulling bridle to devour a steak cut from the quarter of a scarce dead bullock, driving before them their spare horses— on, on they went. The roads at all times bad, at this season were horrible—fifty miles being a liarrl day’s journey even for a Californian. As their exhausted beasts drooled under them they tore olT the saddles, and placing them ou others, hurried on, leaving the poor animals to he devoured hy the eayotes, or recover as chance mijrht bring about. Kver at the head, the last to dismount, and the first to leap into the saddle was this moun taineer, this companion of Kit Carson ! this pioneer of empire! Fremont ! Rarely speaking but to urge on his men, or to ques tion some passing native, taking the smallest modicum of refreshment, and watching while others snatched a moment's repose, was lie wrapped up in his project and determined to /hive some of the fight. Through San Pablo, and Monterey, and Josepha they dashed like the phantom ri ders of the llartz Mountains, startling the inhabitants, and making the night-watcher cross himself in terror as their band (lew on. The River Sncrifieios was reached ; swollen by the ruins, it rolled on, a rapid, muddy stream ; his men paused, “ Forward, forward !” cried lie, ami dashed in himself ; the struggle was a fierce one, but his gallant mustang breasts the current, and he reaches the opposite shore in safety ; his men after to join him two brave fellows finding a watery grave, and many horses being carried down the stream ; but nothing can now stop him the bights adjacent to the l’uebla appear now a smile might be seen on lho implacable vissago of the leader-- - Vis the sixth day, and the gad is term! With ninety men on the Inst of his enrn vnn of horses, lie fell like a thunderbolt on the rear of the Mexicans. The day was with them ; the little band of stout hearts guarding the Preside, taken by surprise, and not having the advantage of the Mexi cans in regard to horses were begining to waver. On comes those riders of Fremont —nothing can withstand their shock.— With shouts of triumph they change the bat tle to a rout. The field, is iron ! The rout was a complete one ; and laid not Fremont's men been utterly exhausted, none would have escaped. So ended the Hide of the (hit Hundred. 1 would stale that the government, with their unusual speed in such matters, passed an appropriation to satisfy (Jcneral Vallejo and others for their losses, six years after. This put a virtual end to the war, for though they again made a stand at the San Pascal, headed by Pico, us they wore dis pirited, and (Jen. Kearny with his mounted men defeated them with great loss. The governorship of the country being decided, which had long been u source of trouble be tween Kearny, Stockton and Mason, affairs become more settled, and the American force, now largely augmented, was placed on such a footing as to soon “crush llm head of rank rebellion,” and Pico and Cas tro lied to the lower country, to light for u time longer against inreitablc fate.- Xe.w Voile Tribune.

A Kussiim counsellor of state lms recent ly published n work styled “ (iold mid Sil ver their origin, mid the mnnuiit extrueted from all tliu countries of tins known world, from the most remote limes to the year IHfiti.” The following jnirtienhirs are inter esting : “ The amount of gold and silver annnally taken from the mines of Knrojie, inelnding llnssia, is 2(5,805 kilogrammes of the for mer, (2 1 lit pounds to I lie kilogramme,) and lt'il,•141 kilogrames of the latter, valued to gather at $25,000,000. “In America, including California, the annual product is Ititt.KIU kilogrammes of gold, and IdO.lHO kilogrammes of silver, worth in nil, $14li.000,000. “ In Asia, tlie annual product is 2,100 kilogrammes of gold, and 11 n oun of silver, amounting in value to $22,000,000. “Australia, too, yields no silver, Imt the annual product of gold, amounts to 200.200 kilogrammes, valued at $200,000,000. “Sum total, in all parts of the world, • r >IO. 100 kilogrammes of gold, and 1,020.- 024 kilogianimus of silver, valued together at.

At the present rule we gain more in lilty years than our ancestors did in fifty centuries — The annual increase of gold and silver for the period of three years ending 1K.M, more than doubled that of any previous year, amounting to (101.000 000 francs; and in the last four years, ending 1855, it has in creased nearly 150 per cent, and now amounts to 1.502.001.001 francs, or $018.- 520,050.

Since the lute news from Nicaragua, rep* resenting the footing of Walker in Central Ann l ien ns anything litit secure, some of die papers, with the view, probably, of eliciting sympathy it nil aid in t'uliforniii, have taken considerable pains to torture the affairs of the new ly-llcdged I 'resident into a comely shape, amt the anurehy lie has created into good government. They have attempted to prove his popularity with the people l»y (pulling the handsome majority by which he was elected President, and the purity of his motives by the good he has already accom plished. As to the election by which he was placed at the head of the Republic, there can lu) but one honest opinion in relation to it, and thill is that the affair was a complete fared, lie deposed Rivas because lie imagined he could dispense with his services ami his in* llnencc, and assumed the oilier of Chief Kx erntivo, not in compliance with the wishes ol the people, as expressed through the bal lot box, tail, in lU'eordance with Ids own iiiin mid ambition. Can any one acquainted with the character of Walker for a moment believe that th 1 ' official vote of the Repub lic, as published in the (lovcrmncnt organ, was a correct exhibit of the balloting* ?—• We do not, nor do wo belioVo that had any one, or all of the three other candidate*, received a larger vote than himself—even admitting the possibility of a fair election—. the result would have been at all different, There might have been some wrangling, possildy some lighting, but Walker would iiave been President. The ofliciu) returns indicate the easting of ‘2d.000 votes, of which number Walker re ceived over 17.000 I This showing looks well to the world, for whose eyes it was in tended, iis a justification of the seizure of the reigns of government, but events w hich transpired immediately after the inaugura tion of the new administration, conclusively prove the election an unblushing fraud. If Walker received more than two-thirds of the votes cast, Imw happened it that in a month after the election lie found the people in arms against him, and led by Rivas, the most popular man in the Republic, who, ac cording to the official returns, received but 800 votes / If 17,000 of the quulilied elec tors of .Nicaragua threw up their hats for Walker on the 11th of June, how comes it that lie is now at the head of less than IJO0 men, which number is daily being reduced by deserton, and that nearly the whole na tive population is in rebellion against him?
