Into the city of Kambaln, By the read that leadoth to Ispahan, At the head of his dusty caravan, 0 ' Laden with treasure from realms afar, BalJaoca an) Kelatand Kandahar, Rode the great captain Alan. The Kahn from his palace-window gased I He saw ia the thronging street beneath, In the light of the setting sun that biased, Through the clouds of dust by the caravan raised, The flash of harness and jeweled sheath, And the shining scimitars of the guard, . And the weary camels ihat bared their teeth, As they psssed and passed through the gates un barred' Into the gates of the palaoe-yard.' Thus into the dry of Kambslu Rode the great captain Alau And he stood before the Kahn and said, . " The enemies of my lord arc dead All the Kalifs or all the West Bow and obey bis least behest The plains are dark with mulberry trees, The weavers are busy In Seraarcand, The miners are sifting the golden sand, The divers are plunging for pearls in the sees, And peace and plenty are !n the land. " Only Baldaooa'i Knlif alone Rose in rebellion against thy throne His treasures are at the palace door, With the swords and the shawls and the jewels . he wore f r His body is dust o'er the desert blown. " A mile outside of Beldooca's gate I left my forces to lie in wait, Concealed by forests and hillocks of sand, And forward dashed with a handful of men, To lure the old tiger from his den Into the ambush, I bad planned. Ere the town was reached the alarm was spread, For we hsard the sound of gongs from within With clash of cymbals and warlike din The gates swung wlJe j we turned and fled, And the garrison sallied forth and pursued, With the gray old Kalif at their head, And above the banner of Mahomed : Thus we snared them all, and the town was sub dued. " As in at the gate we rode, behold, A tower that was called the Tower of Gold! For there the Kslif had hidden his wealth, Heaped and hoarded, and piled on high, Like sacks of whest in a granary And there the old miser creep by stealth, To feel of the gold that gave him health, To gate and gloat with his hungry eye On jewels that gleamed like a glow-worms spark, Or the eyes of a panther in the dark. I said to the Kalif Thou art old, Thou hast no need of so uuuh gold Thou should'stnot have heaped and hie'dsn it here, Till the breath of battle was hot and nesr, But have sown through the laud these useless boards, ..... . And keep thine honor sweet and clear. These grains of gold are not grains of wheat , These bars of silver thou canst not eat; Those jewels and pearls and precious stones Cannot cure the aches in thy bones. Nor keep the feet of Death one hour From climbing the stairways of thy tower! ' ' Then into his dungoon I locked the drone, And left him to feed there all alone In the honey-cells of his golden hive Never a prayer, nor a cry, nor a groan Was heard from the massive walls of stone, Nor again was the Kalif seen alive ! " When at last we unlocked the door, Wo found him dead upon the fl. or ; The rings had Gr ipped from his withered bands, His teeth wire like bones in the deceit sands j Still clutching his treosuiee he had died 1 And as he lay there, he sp eared A statue of gold with a silver besrd, His arms outstretched as if crucified." This is the story, strange snd true, That the great captain Alau Told to his brother the Tartar Khan, When he rode that day into Kainbalu By the road that leadeth to Ispahan. Atlantic for Junt. Wast or Decision. A prcat deal of labor is lost to the world fur the want of a littlo courage. Every day sends to their graves a number of ob scure men, who have only remained in obscurity because their timidity lias prevented them from making a first effort, and who, if they had only been induced to begin, would in all proba bility havo gne great lengths in the career of fume. lho lact is, that in doing anything in the world worth do ing we must not stand shivering on the bank, thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in and scramble through as well as we can. It will not do to le perpetually calculating risks and adjusting nice chances; it did all very well before tho flood, when a man could consult his friends upon an in tended publication tor a hundred and fifty years, and live to see its success for six or seven conturies afterward; but at proscnt a man waits and doubts, and consults his brothef, ana his uu clos, and his particular friends, till one day he finds that he is sixty-five years of ago, and that he has lost so much time in consulting first cousins and particular friends that he has no more time to follow their advice. There is so little time for ovcr-squeamishncss at present, that the opportunity slips away. The very period of life at which a man chooses to venture, if ever, is so confined that it is no bad rule to preach up the necessity, in such in; stances, of a little violence done to the feelings, and efforts made in defiance of such strict and sober calculations. Sydney Smith. ThB silk worm feeds upon the mul bery leaf and spins his silk. The po et feasts upon the world of nature, and spins his beautiful thought and fancies. Feelings go and come like light troops following the victory of the present; but principles, like troops of the lino, aro undisturbed and stonu fust. Manners What Not to Do. The difference between the gentle man and the clown consists not so much in the breadth of thought and noblenoss of nature on the one hand with the absence of these on the oth er, as may be supposed, but rather in a thousand little things. Many, who have excellent common sense in some things, and even talent, make them selves unacceptable to their frionds on account of uncouth habits. .There is no criminality in being awkward, but it is a great inconvenience, at least would be, if the man knew it. In a brief period one may see a great many things that excite his pity or awaken his dingust. We know a person of wealth who goes to church early, and is suro to take out his knife and cut and clean his fingernails beforo service commences. We know another, who has a classical education, who in church uses his tooth-pick, not be cause his teeth need picking, but sim ply to keep himself occupied, as one would twirl his watch-key, or as a la dy would toy with her fan. XSow, tooth-picking associations are as tiaa as naii-cieaning. uui we would rather Gee a person clean his nails, even in company, than to see a black streak under each finger-nail on a lady's hand that flashed with diamond rings ; but wo read in Scrip ture of the jewel being in an unfit place, and why should . they not be in modern times r Somo young men whistle in a ferry boat or street car, and we have no ticed nine times in ten, that the fools who practice this aro deficient in mu sical talent, and are not aware that they are chafing the nervos of every listen' r in two ways first, with the bad music ; second, with the rawness of the practice of porpotrating music on people without any invitation and without their consent. Drumming with the fingers or with the feet, making unnecessary noiso among some pooplo who are nervous render the society of persons who thoughtlessly perpetrate these petty rudenesses almost insufferable. We are awaro that these habits ofter orig inate in diffidence. The person feelsi nervous, and does not know exactly what to do but to practice this drum ming as a kind of outlet or scapegoat to nervousness. Well-bred people may do this, but it is no Bign of good breeding, and it iaprima facie evidence of ill-breeding. Sprawling the feet and legs in company is another common and very improper practice, u is an auhticuu habit," known by the rule of putting the feel as high as the head, or high er. 1 asstner by hotel in rsew lorn, Boston, or Philadelphia, one sees in a sine-le window perhaps four pairs of fvt, Md w hf Mm wotouilina from a third story window a pair of feet nad a foot of leg attached to each. It is regarded in England as an of fence against good taste to show the bottom of tho 6hoo in company, and therefore Englishmen are not likely to so sit as to exhibit the bottom of tho foot, much less retst one foot on tho knee ; but go into a company of (en or twelvo Americans, see what awkward adjustment the men prcsont with their feet and legs, and wo ask ... .1 il A Ml no severer criticism man inai win give on this bad habit. Another bad practice in company, or any where, is to lean back against the wall, and hoist tho feet on the round of the, chair, if it havo one. We have seen many a nice mahogany or rosewpod chair broken qlf at tho back, by heavy louts leaning back on the two hind legs but we beg par don for having been caught in such company. It tho habit were not un couth, and if, tho chair did not break, it would mar the wall. lounging on sofa, and sitting, as somo gentlemen do, on the small of the back, is very rude. II a man wisnes to recline on the sofa, let him lay himself down, and gather up his feot, as if he wero composing himself to to sleep, or as if he wore drunk ; but this sprawling, lounging, and leaning, is execrable. Picking the nose in company, or usinir the handkerchief unnecessarily or ostentatiously, and especially look ing atlt after it has been used, need not be condemned the very mention of it is enough. Persons frequently work at the oars " belore lolks.' e rememwr when a child, seeing ' a woman in church put her littlo finger in her ear, elevate iier elbow, ana give n one grand shaking ; but though in was before the days of daguerreotypes, it was thoroughly uaeuerreotyped on our memory. Hawking, spitting, and clearing tho throat may sometimes bo necessary, even in public, but it should bo done as quietly as possible, with tho hand- kerchiof to the mouth. 1 owning, stretching, putting tho hands in the pockets, it will do for littlo boys with their first pockets ; bnt when we see men in tho pulpit, or on the platform, thrust their hands in their trowsers pocket, we can not say it is a sin, but it is an uncouth habit. riavincr with the pocket-knife, jingling keys, and loose chatgo, are in very bad taste. looking at the watch in an open way makes one think a person wishes to make a display of that valuable article. It is considered ill-manners to look at one's watch in company, but we now speak of public places, concerts, in church, etc., and not private society. One may take a peep at his watch in public places, if he does it quietly, not to attract at tention, and it is allowable. Ixud talking is very rude on a ferry-boat, in a railway car, at church, in the lecture , or concert-room before the services commence, ' and dotestable afterward. Little parties should keep their personal conversation to them selves. Nothing, we think, shows good-breeding more than a quiet man ner, a mellow voice, and that decor- ousness and gentleness which accom pany that style of speech. One more very common and yery annoyiug habit may be named, and that is, not going when one starts, but standing in the door. Many a cold has been taken . by the patient lady of the house with nothing on for protection, being detained by a gos siping friend, sometimes ten minutes to hear last words and confidential communications ; talking thus in the noise and roar of thestreet necessitates loud talking, and sometimes the most confidential things are heard all over tho house, and even across the street. "We remember, in particular, a fam ily that lived ' next door to us. The young ladies would stand on the steps and talk, sometimes ten minutes, and we were obliged to go away from our open parlor windows, or hear all their arrangements and confidential conversations, and, forgive us for say ing it, we have seen some people make a display on the steps on pur twse, as we thought, to attract atten tion from people across tire way they have talked loudly and laughed heartily on purpose to make a display. Never stand and talk when you propose to go. We have seen a delicate woman rise to dismiss her company after they had roached the door and " must go right away we havo seen such a lady stand till she turned pale with fatigue,-while her visitors, ruddy and strong, and jolly, would spin long yarns, and then stop again in the cold hall, and on the steps, and after reaching the sidewalk. The proper rule is, when you havo decided to leave, to be off in sixty seconds. Never keep a person standing in the hall or at the parlor door, but take leave of your friends where they are, and go at once. Tho Radical Republican Platform. The Central Republican organ of the State of New York the Albany Journal thus lays down the program of its party. It will bo seen that the Journal does not try how not to say it, but speaks right out in meeting. It says : " The Southern States must recog nize tho freedom and equality of the blacks. They must accept the princi ples embodied in the proposed amend ment of the Constitution. They must establish sufficient guarantees for the liberties that have been won by war. They must enter into irrevocable obli gations to surrender their pestilential dogma of sovereignty, and to refrain forever from attempted revolution. Until they do these things, their p li tical privileges will not bo restored to them they can have no representa tion in the Federal Government, and inuai l.a ounaulured in fcntagoniaru with the Union, and requiring oversight and repression." - f The Journal is very plain, and lays down with truthfulness the real plat form of its party. The Southern States "can have no representation in the Federal Government, and must be considered in antagonism with the Union, and requiring oversight and repression," until they shall recognize, not only tho freedom which they havo dono but, also, the "equality of the blacks" until they shall "accept tho principles embodied in the pro posed amendment of the Constitution" until they shall "establish sufficient guarantees for the liberties that have been won by war," (what are they?) until they shall enter into "irrevoca ble obligations to surrender their pes tilential dogma of sovereignty, and to refrain forever from attempted revolu tion." These must bo dono before the Southern States can be allowed Rep resentatives and Senators in Congress, or be relieved of military rule. It is well that the points of the coming political contest aro so well defined. There is to be no restoration of tho fraternal relations between the States North and South. No restoration of the Union. No Union, but in its place section alism. No representation in Congress of tho Southern States. No withdrawing of military surveil lance, oversight and repression from tho outh. Until the Southern States shall have put the blacks on an equality, civilly, politically and otherwise, with the whites, and done certain other things to secure equality to the blacks and to provide against revolution in the fu ture, "their political privileges will not bo restored to them." Which programme, if successful at the polls, will endanger the peace of the country and the permanency of the Government; will require the con tinuation of high taxes to support a large standing army and a horde of L'uderal oihcials scattered through the South; will require high tariff to sup port the heavy expenses of the Gov ernment, and to give bounties to New England manufacturers; will secure to tho holders of Government bonds continuod exemption from State and municipal taxation, and will koep the industry, trade and business of the country in an unsettled state for years to come. We aro but entering upon, instead of emerging from, an agita tion that is revolutionary in its ten dencies, and which cannot be other wiso than detrimental to the public welfare. Such is the entertainment to which the Radical Republicans in vite the people. Cin. qirer. Never offer to intrude, by words of untimely sympathy, uton a grief borne as nieu bear it, and felt as women feel it. We don't see why a lady in crino line should go abroad for companion ship.

SSBBBSBSSSSSS- Uniropressible as are the American people if they can, with truth, be said to be unimpressible and weak as are the great majority of the pub lic journals of the country, it is not to be disputed that the press of the Unit ed States wields a vast influence over the popular mind. It is capable of great good ; it is also capable of mighty evil. Indifferent as are the greater share of its articles, and threadbare and narrow as is its philosophy, it can by constant repetition of the same statements and ideas, at length fix them upon thelommon memory, and make them the springs of action in matters in which the fate of the nation may be involved. The public journal is at once the creator and the collaborator of the popular orator. The orator draws upon the journal for his resources, and the journal upon the orator. 'Inca ses of agitation, the difference between thorn is, that the one represents the individual, the other the class ; the one is the demagogue, the other the scum of all demagogery. Had there been upon neither side newspapers ana popular .orators to stir the publio mind by untrue state ments or unsound deductions from known facts, there would have been no jealousies between the Isorth and the South, no abolition excitement and no war. It required years of falsehood and misconstruction and ex aggeration to bring on a state of ac tive hostility. The means of propo gating slander and intensifying hatred in the absence of these two imple ments, would have been insufficient to bring on a conflagaration. As it was, it is not necessary to inquire up on which side the means wero usod mo6t unscrupulously. We are speak ing of the result which they produced war and its consequences of mutual injury and collective insolvency. The truth which we desire to impress is this : that continued .malign agitation in this country leads to war. It has done so once ; there is no reason to doubt that it is capable of doing so again. The refore it is that we condemn the efforts that are continually being made by the press and orators of the nepuuucan parry, to Keep oeiore tne people of the North the real or unreal sins, follies and misdoings of the peo ple of the Southv Why this continual overhauling of old accounts? why this constant and laborous presenta tion of incitements to hatred, distrust and susnicion. if not to nernotuate a condition of enmity ? Admitting that there are men in the South whose passions are immoderate, and whose words are intemperate : is it just al ways to assume that these passions and these words truly represent the Fouth in its collective capacity ? -. W Jnovr! bliwa tbe without mutual tolerance there can be no per manent union of these States ; and that any temporary union will be a source of infinite distress and expense It is due to the conquering party to set the example of forbearance. More than we can express, we regret the narrowness and want of magnanimity which characterizes the entire Repub lican press and body of popular ora tors. The tene of the North, as it is spoken through their vehicles, is that of a pooplo who have not been re venged half enough who havo yet hatreds to feed and enmities to satisfy, and who are resolved to koep open an avenue to further satisfaction. If we. were ablo to discover any, the slight est, wish for the restoration of a desi rable unity, we would not hesitate to confess it ; but we do not. The Union looks farther off than ever, and is daily, to all appearance, receding in to the regions of utter hopelossncss. hat wo would like to know is, whether the people of tho North do really take pleasure in this multipli cation of the literature of Southern hatred and disloyalty. Ihis elaborate slander for even the presentation of facts becomes de famatory when it is carried to ex tremes, or is made for an injurious purpose is war. It is the meanest and most despicable species of war. It is a war that cowards can prosecute, and which, to prosecute, is a sign of cowardice. It is even more inimical to national unity than a conflict of arms. Friendships were formed, and lessons of mutual tolerance learned in the midst of actual hostilities ; but here is no room for such meliorating influences. It is a work purely of in jury, for which there is no compensa tion ; a cause which is to be worked out in unhappy effects in a long and ominous future. Cin. Enquirer. Hint to Letteb Writers. By the lute act to amend the l'ostal laws; it is provided th&t postmasters shall re turn to the writers, free of cost, all letters not called for, when requested to do so by the person mailing them. Persons mailing letters should boar this in miud and write on them a re quest to the postmaster to return the letter to them if not delivered ia any number of days they may choose to mention. By this course luuch delay and anxiety may often be avoided. Better send the young virgin, with her wreath of rosebuds, her tender nesa, her ignorance of life's sufferings her dream-pictures of a holy Eden, into tho graveyard of earth, which is God's field, than into the waste places of life. The moral and apprehensive nature of girls is more rapidly developed than the mind eft boys, as... satellites move faster than planets, or as flowers bloom sooner in valleys than on moun tains.

Republican Muddle' lu tho Sixth District. Correspondence ef the Detroit Free Press. Fust, Aug. 2. 18G0. Matters here in regard to the Con gressional District Convention are get ting somewhat mixed among the im maculate Republicans, as to who shall have the honor to represent us in the next Congress. ' We have three dis tinguished individuals dosiring tho honor, First, the honorable gentle man that now represents us, lion. John F. Driggs, of East Saginaw. Second, Hon. James Biraey, of Bay county. Third, the late lrovost Mar shal of the' District, Strickland, of St. Johns. Driggs is going In on the strength of what he has done. Birney on what his father has done. Strickland on his nerve. . ' v Dritrgs claims that he has already a great national reputation. Birney claims the same for his father. Strick land thinks he can make one if ho has a chance. Between Driggs and Birney thoro happens to be a most bitter feud; thov are as fond of each other as the devil is of consocrated eloments. Driggs is too much of a political figurer for Birney. The reason is obvious. Driggs was educated in Tammany Hall; Bir ney in a theological seminary. Birney may be a good priost, but a poor poli tician. The good book says : " Oh ! that mino enemy would wrfto a book." Some two years sinco, Birney, think ing himself the most abused, and at the same Eime the moat able man irt . the District to renresont ius in Con gress, wroto a book detailing all his grievances and troubles, particularly thoso relating to the Hon. John F. how John had cheated him out of fho nomination, and all that. John had undoubtedly all tho time been praying for this same thing that is the book. How remarkably his prayer was an swered. He must be a pious cuss. Jim says, if John is nominated, he will run on a stump ticket against . him, and has already sjnt round his little circulars to those he thinks aro his friends, asking them for signatures to that effect Every year about applo time you see Jim about figuring for some poli-, tical nice, and he generally comes out of the conventions, and front before the people, as tho man did some years since, who took a large dose of Bran dreth's pills with as little left. Tho ' doses his political friends administer to him are terrific. But he recuper ates before the next two years wears round, and is again ready for another trial. John undoubtedly has the in- side track. He relies on the efforts he has made for tho mining interest t Im.V Superior in him votee on th tariff ; his vote for more pay in apolo gised for, that a Representative can not sustain his reputation (without his family) in Washington, as a bully member of the Republican party, for less than five thousand a year. I very much doubt if he can. But John, Jim and Strick, all three, are bound to bo disappointed. The man who will finally receive tho nomination is Col. William B. McCrccry, the present popular mayor of this city. Modest and unassuming, not seeking tho nom- ination himself, the young men of the party (not the wire pullers) aro deter mined to secure it for him. He is far superior to either of the other men in education, and natural abilities. . Educated for the bar, he was, admit ted to practice just at tho breaking out of the rebellion; and had he cho en to follow it, his succes in the law would have equaled that in the field. His bravery and gallantry as a com manding officer, his imprisonment in Lib by and remarkablo escape, are too familiar to the peoplo of the district to be repeated. My only hope is ho will not be nominated, for he, or any other Republican, is bound to be de feated; but if his friends desire to sac rifice him it is no fault of ours. , His friends claim that he is entittled to it He has tamed it by his services ' in the field. They also say the county is entittlod to it, it boing the largest and strongest Republican conn ty in the district. Bay county is De mocratic, Saginaw about equally bal anced, and if there is a Republican majority to bo obtained in the district it must como out of Genesee. My only hopo is that there will bo such a general row grow ont of this muddle as to onable tho Democracy te send a man to the next Congress who will represent the district honest- ly, doing credit to the district and State, which is moro than can be said for the past few years. Occasional. The thousand watchful nights and other sacrifies by which a mother gives a hero or a poet to the state are for gotten, not once counted; the mother herself does not count them; and so; one century after another,mothcrs un named and nnthanked, send forth the arrows, the stars, the storm-birds, and the nightingales of time. Sculptors have to strike almost in numerable blows upon the marble block to develop the statue that is hid den within it Shoolmasters are apt to think they must treat an urchins body in the same way to develop his mind. Josh Billings remarks with as much good' feeling as truth, that "in the good old daze there wui more fun in thirty cents than there is now in 7 dollars and a half." The hard strata of circumstances through which ones life rill most needs filter and force its way,' may make it purer and clearer just as all hard strata are filtcring-stonesof water.
