4 Dut. xxxtv., 5.
By Nebo's lonely mountain, .
On this side Jordan's wave,
In a vale in the laud of Moub, '
There lies a lonely grave.
And no man dug that sepulchre,
And no man saw It e'er
For the angels of God upturned the sod
And laid the dead man thcro.
That was the grandest funeral
That ever passod on earth,
But no man heard the trampling
Or saw the truiu go forth.
Noiselessly as tho daylight
Comes when the night is done.
And Ibe crimson streak on ocean'. cheek
Grows into the great sun.
Noiselessly as the spring timo
Her crown of verdure weaves,
And all the trees on all the hilfs
Open their thousand leuvesj
So, without sound of uiuvic,
Or voice of tliein that wept,
Silently down from the mountain's erown,
Tho great procorsion swept.
Fcrelianco the bald old eagle, 4
On gray Fetb-poor's height,
Out of his rocky .eyrie,
1 xiked en th Wondrous sight.
Perchnnce the lion stalking,
Still shuns that hallowed spot
For boat an 1 bird hive seen and heard
That which man kuoweta not.
But when the warrior dioth,
His comrades in the war,
With arms reverted and muQlod drum,
Follow tho funeral ear.
They show the banners taken,
They tell his battles won
And After him lend h s masterlcu steed,
While peals the minute gun.
Amid the noblest of tho land
Men lay the sago to rest, ' '
And give the bard an honored place
With cotly marble drcst.
In the great minister transept,
Where lights like glories fall,
And the sweet choir sins and the organ rings
.Along tho emblazoned wall.
This was the bravest warrior
That ever buck led sword 1
This the uvwt gifted et

A Description of tho Treasury EuiM
ing What may bo eoea in tho
Morning.
B. V. Taylor, writing from Wash
ington thus gives a jiieturo of lifo
whero greenbacks aro made:
Tho Treasury ImiUlir.g is a walled
city. Any morning, between eight

or another, you M'ill soo a lino of men
and women' filing tilently in. Somo
in carriages, somo in cars, and bouio
on foot, dangling a dinner basket.

missod out of daily lifo, and who havo
worn out their "excellencies," aro
among them, senators that were, leg
islators that would bo, smooth-faced
youth and grizzly ngo ; palo, thin men
in fslippery black ; stout, ruddy lellows
in fancy patterns ; mock-eyed matrons
and bright-eyed maidens. You won
der nt tho long procession, and you
number it at livo hundred, but it is a
hobt of two thousand strong. As tho
clock tolls nine, tho lust girl flutters
in at a door and out of airht. You
havo beoii Beeing tho workicg force,
tho rank and filo of the Department.
Tho Secretary of tho Troasury lias

you havo missed the most notablo man
of all. As tho day wears on to ten,
another strong tido begin to How

tho open doors. Men that out Atlas

ly and bv, you follow, and find
yourself in a spacioui hall that con
verges Iiko a , as you look down it,
but asido from a messeuger hastening
with noiseless Rtep, you seo nobody.
You wander from hall to hall, and
beyond a littlo group hcri and thero,
talking with bated breath, fctill no

thousands that just entered beforo
your eyes? Aro they tho retinues ot
tho night kings that went by in Mac

THE LIFE OF AN ACTltESS.
tX ItKV. HF.Xltr OILKS.
Tho follies and vices of tho poor, call
for our pity or our grief, but not for
our scorn, or our stniles. In his poem
of "Tho liorough," Crabbo is tremen
dously sovero on players, and in his
laceruting description of the poor
strollers whom ho satires, thero is un
questionable power; but when this
power is turned against the weak and
the helpless, every generous and pity
ing uutuVo rebells against tyranic ge
nius. The most prosperous in "the
theatrical profession illustrate so stri
kingly tho vicisitudes and transcioncy
of our human state that I can. connect
them with only sober associations; tho
unsuccessful, whoso work is hard, rnd
whoso pny is as uncertain as it is scan
ty, I can regard only with sadness
and compnsyion. There is so much of
tho glare and grief of lifo connected
with tho stage, that it fills mo with
ino:;t solemn thoughts. To-day tho
god and goddess of tho scene, stiflod
with dense crowds, inflated with ap
plause, tread with testacy a giddy and
an airy height; that height has been
attained, often, through years of labor,
trials, fear, want and suffering; now
wealth flows in upon them with, most
ample measure; plaudits hail their
triumphs, and intoxicated joy is theirs
to suffocation. All those will soon bo
gono and silent; aN brief enthusiasm
will givo them to oblivion, or give
them to tho tomb.
I heard tho wonderfull Malibran in
her latest concert. I listened to her
dying song. Sho poured fjVth htr im
passioned soul, 'in linked sweetness
long drawn out," through all the ma
zes of music. A glorious crowd was
beforo Iter of jeweled and and joyous
beauty, light and gladuo3 gavo en
chantment to tho hour, nniHhousands
of excited heart were raised to tho
delirium of dolight At this moment,
lifo in her who caused the pleasure
was throbbing to its close. Encoro
upon encoro echoed in shouts that
seemed to rend tho ceiling. Tho poor
singer eamo on, elated by tho cheers;
sustained by wonted fervor,, her sink
ing form arose living and tluetic her
transcendent eyo kindled with even
unusual lire; her magical tones swelled
and sank, and floated into wilder
ecstasy; again tho building rung with
plaudits they were her triumph and
her knell. 1 might havo gono from
this place to tho tuge door of the next
theatre and thero 1 might have seen
a weary creature, coming out from
her night' unnoticed labors, and she
was also iroin; homo to die. No'

such as Mr. Crabbo, in tho section I
havo mentioned, describes with a pa
thos that compensate for his to- J
verity tow aids tho o her members of
tho company. 1 might have seen thi
trembling girl who, ut a moment be
fore, was blazing in tinsel, amidst gas
and gilding, stealing to her cold aud
shabby lodging tho paint washed
from her cheek, and leaving the palor
of consumption in its stead t'.ie mim

hard thought and hard words: shame
upon tho pharasaism, that could dis
cern no motive in her career, but van
ity, when charity, that "thinkcth no
evil," might suggest impulses moro
worthy, the necessities, perhaps, of a
widowed mother, or sickly father, or
of helpless and orphaned brothers and
sister. J5liamo upon tno unmaniy in

Tho first well of this kind wos that of
tho abattoir of Crenelle. This was
sunk, after eight year's incessant la
bor, a total depth of lii'b feet, and
gavo riso to many inventions for the
purposo of facilitating tho progrcts of
tho works, for removing tno broken
tools, for tho introduction of tho pipes,
and for carrying on observations at
various depths from tho surface Sub
sequently many similar wolls were
sunk on tho continent, particularly in
the llhino provinces, but they wero all
of small diameter, lho Herman en
gineers introduced important modifi
cations in the tools, ayenhausen
made tho etriking part, used for com
nrtnuting tho rock' t-j slidt so as to
fall always through a certain di stance,
and thus avoid a jar. Kind had al
ready nppliod his system to large ex
cavations for winniug coal mines, when
ho was intrusted by tho Municipal
Council of l'aris with lho execution
of the well nt Eussy. Thii was to
havo a diameter of one meter (: feet
3 7-10th inches,) that at (Jreuello
being only twenty centimeter (alut
eight inches.) Tho difficulties en
countered in carrying tho excavations
through-4ho clays of the upper serins
wero no serious that six years' nnd
nine months wero occupied in reach
ing the walor-beaving stratum, which
was ultimately attained at a depth of
1.1)13 feet 10 inches from the surface,
when the yield was 3,3 10,1200 gallons
per day, .of twenty-four hoars, subso
qucntly increased to .r,f$:!,000 gallons
per day. Tho total cost of the well
was 10,000. It was lined with solid
masonry for a depth of loO feet; then
wood nnd iron tubing was introduced
to feet from -fno surface, and
below that, thero was a length of cop
per pipe pierced witliho!cs,
Contractcri and Gcwins-Wcmcn.
Tho following fucts aro Printed in a
late number of tho Philadelphia Jlvt.
Idin. They servo to show up the clus
of men who nro so clamorous for war,
and tho roason why they are so :
A sub-eoutrat tor for the govern
ment in this city, hose numo though
known to us, wo for tho present with
hold, in now getting work done iu
Wilmington, Delaware, at tho follow
ing prices:
Haversacks, 10 cent. Wo under
stand that by a long and hard day'
work four of these can bo madej but
this rate cannot long bo kept up.
1'antaloons, 10 eonts! A case wa
mentioned to us, whero a woman, by
working from early morning until 1
o'clock at night, succeeded in making
eighteen of theso garments in a weok,
but by working in this manner eori
ously injured her eyesight.
Heavy overcoats, 40 cents each.
Wo are informed that those garments
aro so heavy to handle, that thoso
who work upon them soon break
down with pains in tho back, unless
they are uncommonly strong of frame
To the abovo prico ton cents aro added
for making 115 button-holes about
five hours' steady work, or two cent,
per hour!
Wo aro told that the old prico for
ranking overcoats was always SO ccnt9
each, so that now while the necessa
ries of life aro at a double price, those
who -'consume them aro to work ot
hulf price, the effect of which is that
they are required to do exactly four
times as much work a formerly to
procure the same quantity of food, fuel
or raiment.
Another case has been mentioned
to us where an army contractor get
$J each from the government for
making shelter tents, for which work
ho pays forly-jht cents! which it seems
is just half the price formorly given.
All this is literally shameful; thero
is no other word to express it, and no
community is justifiable in seeing the
poor among it crushed in this fright
ful way. It is tho clear duty of tho
government so to control its contrac
tor that they shall bo forced to do
somo kind of justico to thoso whom
they employ.
The very eamo men who aro thus
grinding the poor to death, aro squan
dering tholr extensive profits in tvory
specie of foreign luxury, swelling
our imports,, depriving us of our gold
to pny fur them, aiding in depreciating
our currency, and speculating in all
tho necessaries of life, to tho direct
enhancing of all tho values Let us
have. a refoim without delay. Tho
whole) matter is too iufuruoU to bo
telratod. . . .- . ,

No tine lady over exhibited moro terror

himself into a coiner, and stood trcm
blimr and roarinsr in such an" oxtaey
of fear, that wb wero always obliged
to desist in pity to, the poor brute.
Sometimes we insisted on his passing
over the spot whero tho unconscious
littlo mouse ran buekwards and lor
wards. For a long time, howover, we
could not get hiu to move; till at-
length I believe by iho help of a squib
wo ohlic-od him to start: but instead of"
Iiacing lesiuroly across his den, or ma
ting a detour to avoid tho object of"
his alarm, ho ereuerally took a kind of
flying leap so high as nearly to bring;
his back in contact with, tho roof o
