He sat within a silent room Death's shadow had been there, His heart was filled with grief and gloom, ; His head was bowed in prayer ; He strove to shut out memory, So filled with bitter pain, But close before his weeping eyes Her glass was held again. Again he stood beside his wlfo And almost deemed her living Again he took the farewell kiss Which she had died in giving. Ho half forgoUhat deuih had been Within his pleasant home ; lie seemed to feci her presence there Beside him iu her room. 1'here stood upon the mantel shelf ' A vase of faded flowers, ' They had been placed there by herself In happy, glowing hours j Thero sat her vacant, crimson chair, Her shawl across it lying, It had been folded round her breast When he had seen her dying. . . There was her bosket and her books, i ! Her portrait on the wall, : . The Bible where her last sweet looks ' ; 1 On holy words did fall, A few short years before and ho ' ' Had brought her there a bride, ' : But now she was laid down to rest 1 With her infant by her side. He did not dream how much he loved ' The flower that he had cherished, Or how she twined about his heart, Until the bloom had perished. THE DESERTED WIFE. i He comes not I have watched the moon go down, But yet he comes nut. Once it was not so. He thinks not how these bitter tears do flow, The while he holds his riot in that town. Yet he will come and chide, and I shall weep ; And he will wake my infant from its sleep, To blend its feeble wailing with my tears. Oh ! how I love a molher's watch to keep Over those sleeping eyes, that smile, which cheers My heart, though sunk in sorrow, fixed and deep. I had a husband once, who loved mi now He ever wears a frown upon his brow, And feeds his passion on a wanton's lip. Aa bees from laurel flowers a poison sip. But yet I cannot hats. Oh! thero were hours When I oould hang forever on his eye, And Time, who stole with silent swifeness hy, Strewed, as ho hurried on, his path with Cowers. I loved him then he loved me too. My benrt Still finds its fun Iness kindle if he smile ; The memory of our loves wilt ne'er depart; And though he often s'yig me with a dart, Vsnomed and barbed, and woste upon the vile Caresses which his babe and mino should share- Though he should spurn me I will calmly bear His madnoss ; aiid should sickness corns and lay Its paralyzing band upon him, theu , I would with kindness all my wrongs repay, Until the penitent should weep and say How injured and how faithful I had been. sr AIM. Ofenino or the Cortes Speech of the Queen Her Relations with Mex ico. The Queen of Spaiu opened the Corfes ou the 1st December. Her Majesty spoke as folbns : Senort Senator! and Detmtiea I have come with feelings of iively satisfaction to inaugurate your lubor.i. Surrounded by the representatives of the nation, who at all times have given me the most marked proofs of their affection and loyalty, I am strength enetl in the hope that, under the shadow of the throne, Spain will enjoy tranquilly the advantages, of constitutional government, aiid will attain the power which once was bers, through the courago and Science of hor children, her religious piety, and tho wiso rulo of ber monarclis. : ; I have the satisfaction to announce to you that onr relutions with friendly Powers are at this moment cordial and sincere. I huvo adopted all the means compatible with the national dignity to prevent peace being disturbed between twocouutries bound by fraternal ties; but, if contrary to my wishes and hopes, an immediate result is not obtained by pacifio negotiations, I will em ploy the resources already prepared in sup port of my demands with vigor and energy equal to the moderation and temperance shown in the long period of the differences existing with the Government of Mexico. ..Some ships of the squadron assembled at the Havana, are stationed in the river of Tampico, and. also in the waters of the Island of Sacrifioios, with the object of pro tecting the interests nnd lives of my subjects. jThe Emperor of Morocco, recognizing, as be hug not done up to the present, a princi ple embodied iu the treaties concluded with Spain, in virtue of which he has agreed to pay no indemnity for the ship captured ty the Moors' of the Riff, more than two years ago, I hope that he will continue to satisfy, in like manner, my demands, that I mat no longer be obliged to have recourse! to force to insure respect to the Spanish flag, and that there will be no repetition of tho excesses committed against our fortresses and our merchant ships by tho Moors of the Riff, at various periods. ' ' ' Tho outrages of which our missionaries were the victims in Asia, have obliged me to send, in conjunction with the Emperor of the Ureneu, a military expedition to (Jochin China. The land and sea force will n6t, should the occasion 'occur, be beloir the tra ditions and memory of the exploits, which always distinguish the Spanish soldier when defending the interests and honor of his country and his aovsrcign.'' i , ' . From the Washington States. OUR MEXICAN POLICY. It is known that Mexico is convulsed bv a struggle between the reactionary party and me party ot progress the former. being represented by Zuloaga, and the latter by Juarez. The triumph of Zuloaga will eon- nrtn tne rule of priestly domination, and oppose an obstitiato barrier to those social and political reforms which all recognize as essential to the efficient and beneficial ope ration of the Mexican Government. The ascendancy of Juarez will inaugurate the reign of liberal ideas and insure favorable conditions for the success of the republican experiment in Mexico. It is obvious from this timplo r.tatement that the American Government cannot hesitate in distributing its sympathies between these parties. And its inclination towards the system of Juarez is confirmed by considerations of national policy; for, while he solicits an intimate alliance with the United States, and to that end proposes concessions which this Govern ment would embrace with avidity, the on- posing faction of the reactionists uft'ect Eu ropean associations, anil betray a reluctance to yield anything to the friendly instances even of the American republic. If h be tnougnt ot advantage to theLnited States to secure a dominant influence in Mexican councils, they should tiot hesitate to extend every legitimate assistance to the Liberal party. They may interpose their friendly offices by a variety of agmicics; but we are warranted in asserting tiiat tho mere recog nition of the Juarez system would determine, its establishment. , A representative of that Government is now iu Washington, soliciting a reception by the President, and offering in return such conditions of alliance as would amaze tho country. " :! ' ' ' ' Whatever miy be ths ulterior policy of tins irovertiraeut iu its relations with Mexi co, its preseut courso is too clearly defined for misapprehension. We must hold up the bauds of the Liberal party ; we must pro tnott tho success of the Republican experi ment; we must forbid the intervention of European Powers; we must assume and maintain an ascendency of influence in the country ; uud we must exact uu adjustment nt the deputes winch embarrass our relations with the Mexican Government. All these results, we repeat, may be secured by a re cognition : of the Juarez 'Administration. We are not permitted to specify iu detail the advantages which that Government is willing to accord the United Status ; but tiie couucs-iou ot a direct passage between our southern frontier and the Gulf of Caii foi'uia, a guaranty of the utmost freedom of trade, and a settlement of all difficulties ou the most f'.ivorable conditions, are sufficient f themselves to determine the Executive to accept the overtures of the Juarez party. , Whether the President will yield to the importunity of these urgent considerations, or be directed upon another pnlicy by iu duceniauts of which the public arc ignorant, is a quoion which we may safely submit to his enlightened judgment and patriotic impulses. Hut upr.n one point there cun be no hesitation in pronouncing an emphatic opinion, and that is, the propriety of a more vigilant observation of Mexican affairs and a more active intervention for the ujiinteu auce of American interests. " At this moment Mexico is harassed by tho intrigues of European Powers. The French miuiatcr, iu fact, directs the councils of the central Government. Great Britain, France and Spain unite iu imposing demon strations of strength in the Mexican waters. At this critical-juncture the United States have neither a ship in the gulf nor a minis ter in the country 1 We havo already ad verted to the necessity of despatching an energetic representative to the capital of Mexico, lucre are equally obligatory rea sons for the presence of a naval foroo iu its harbors. We uuticipate the objection, that thero are no vessels for the service ; but the argumeut is uutenablo while a squadron is employed upon au oxcursioti of pleasure in the Levant. , : MALE TEACHERS FOR GIRLS. Fanny Fern doesn't think much of scliool- nmsters as governors of girls thinks the damsids are "too many" for 'em : ' 1 pity a male teacher who is set to the impossible task of making girls "behave." I should pity them more, did I not know that they keep them in school about four or five hour.) longer than they ought. Did I not know what they know, but still persist practically in ignoring, that the fun has got to-'cdnie out somehow, or turn to poison in tho blood, and that if teachers won't give it whizzing time out of school, they must needs have it fly io their faces in school. There must be discipline, that's certain j but, in my opiniou, a man's head must bo gray, not brown or black, if he Would enforce it ; his blood must be cold and sluggish, and his ear deaf, to the charmer, charm she never so cunningly, oi' oertcs, his magisterial chair will be set at naught Don't I kuow 1 An swer me, thou now Reverend" gentleman, who once kept me after school for a repri mand, and spent the precious moments roll ing my curls over your -fingers, while my she comrade was bursting off ber hooks and eyes as she pocped through tbo key -hole.

THE MASSACRE AT CAVVNl'ORE. Extraordinary Devtlopmenti. We give, says the New Orleans Delta, the subjoined interestit.g', though somewhat ques tionable, narrative ot incidents in the meinora ble massacre at Cawnpore, gathered by the special uoriespondent of the London Times. It the details here stated be true, it is only another proof that tlii-re is a aoui of good ness io things evil : for even the much-abused Sepoy refused to obey orders leading to butchery aud death. . the narrative is as follows : As time rolls on, and the events of 1857 beojrne historical, the details of the dreadful scenes enacted at Cawnpore, Delhi, Futte ghur, and other places, which must ever sound sadly and horribly iu English ears, are brought before us more clearly, and be view ed more distinctly, if not more calmly. The narrative of Mrs. Murray may be regarded as u fistion founded on fact ; the former be ing the work of the trautlenian who "put her narrative into shape." But there is now in course of investigation the story of anoth er survivor and eye-witness of the massacre of Cawnpore. Some time ago a hall-caste Christian, named File.hett, presented him self for pdtiiission into the police levy before the local authorities ot Meertit. Ihe usual inquiries into his character led to the devel opment of his tale, which is as follows : When the mutiny broke out he was a musi cian iu the band of one of the native infant ry regiments at Cawnpore, and in the gen eral massacre he saved his life try proclaiming that he would become a Mofiam nedan, which he did by au easy process almost on the spot; lie remained in Cawnpore, and was enrolled in the Nana's forcCj with which he did duty. ' Ou the afternoon of the 15th of June, when it became known thitt the Ui'itish were advancing, a council of war, or of delibera lion, was held by the Nana, at which it was resolved the women and children at the Beelieeghur, numbering- about 205, were to be murdered. Ihe news Went rapidiv throngl the town, and the men of the mutinous (it I) Native Infantry enleiing the enclosure pro ceeded to take from our tmfortuiiiito coun trywomen any articles of value or trinkeis which they retained on their persons When the Nana heard of this bo was vei y much displeased, and he sent down a body oi Sowars, wi'h strict orders to permit no one to enter but the executioners. It so happened that by soma means not lem I v ascertained, four hnghsli gentlemen were itl this time living w.tn tlie wuiimn anu children in the enclosure. Three h ive been identified beyond doubt, namely : Mr. Thorn - hill, magistrate and collector of Fu tte Colonel Smith, 10th Native 'Infantry, and Brigadier GolJie, of the clothing depart inc.it; the identity of the fourth has not been established, but it is probable that he was 'one of the Greeitway. Shortly before half pat four o'clock, n menage was bintigl.t to these gent'eineii tluit Brigadier Jerkin, a native officer of (lie mutineers, desired to see them, and thev left tin house to rerair to his quarters. They walked quietly along the load, tispeoiing nothing in -die direction indicated to them, and when they had got as far as the Assembly Rooms they were suddenly attacked from behind, cut down, and murdered on the spot. Meantime preparations "were being made for the execution of the orders of the Nana and his council. There was some difficulty about getting instruments for this horrible butchery. The Sowars wished to save them selves from the defilement of b.ood the ill fautry were equally averse to the task but at Inst some soldiers of the 6ih Native In fantry were compelled to go in, with ordets to fire on the poor, helpless crowd. They fired in the air, or did so little harm that it was evideut the views of the assassins could not be accomplished in that manner. They sent into the town, therefore, and tlie Sowars brought out two of the common butcheis of the bazaar two Bnooreeas, men of a wild, miserable, gipsy like caste and a vilaiytee, who were armed with hatchets and tulwars, and ordeied to gain ad kill everj- soul in the house and enclosure, while all egress was strictly watched by the Sowars outside. It was a long aud dreadful butchery. Fitchett, who was near the place, declares that the assassins entered the enclosure about 5:30 p. m , and that it was 10 p. m. before they came out to announce that their work was accomplished. Once, ha says, a butchet appeared with his sword broken in two,' received a sabre from oue of the So.v ars, aod returned to continue his hellish la bor... The Nana was in the hotel, close af hand, and wheu he heard that all were dead, he gave orders that the doors should be closed for luq uiglu, ami guards put over the place. That fright the Nana gave a oautoh- a kind of dance and ball to his friends. Early in the morning of the 16th, the Nana gave orders that the doors should be opened, aud that all the bodies -should be flung into the well -within tjje compound j but,' as it was far too sinall'toAcontain so many bodies, it is probable that some were dragged away to other places, or were thrown into, the Ganges. . On the 16th, Filuhett tied with his new friends to rutteghur, aod bete occurs a most interesting pait of his story. He deolaies that be frequently saw Kiss Wheeler the daughter of the General, at Futteghur, and that she traveled with a Sowar, who had taken her Irom Cawnpore nay, more, that he was shown into the room where she was, and ordered to read extracts from English newspapers, which the rebel received Irom Calcutta, he being employed i. ii . . ' . , .. oy iiibiu lor me purpose or translating me news, in which, particularly that relating to the progress ot the war with China, they took great interest. She had a boise with an English saddle, which the Sowar had procur ed for her, and she rode close beside him. with ber lace veiled, along the line of march. When the British approached Futtebgiir, 'orders were seat to the Sowar to give Miss1 Wheeler up, but he escaped with her at night, and it is supposed he went with hnr to Cal pee. In that case it is not at all improbable that the unfortunate young lady may besli!: alive, moving about with Tanlia Topee, and that we may rascue her from her unhappy fate. There is another Christian half-caste still alive, who became a' Mohammedan ai the same time ana under the same circutn stances as Miss Fitchett, in pursuit of whom the authorities Hre now most busily engaged. Line upon lii.e, here a little and tiere a little, we shrll soon know ail that cun be known about that "bloodiest record in the book of time." Down and Up. In the year 184. young man who was r;ch, and engaged in a lucrative business in Cincinnati, became en amored of a beautiful and amiable girl the daughter, by the way of wealthy parents and after a brief courtship, married her. He loved her dearly. She loved htm dea'tly. A fortune of happiness seemed in stoe foi them; but. evil days came, and aftsr a brie! but violeut struggle with fortune, tne voting man became bankrupt, lie was left, without a dollar, but not without a hope. The gold mines of CalifoMiiH were open to the adveti t irous. lie would leave his beautiful wile and seek its glittering shores, where he would remain until his fortunes we're revived. The resolution otfee taken was soon ex tctftad. He came to California, but the cloud still hurg over him. He was active, enterpriiing and persevering; yet, while others atotind him were gathering the golden harvest in abundance, bis every object failed. Foi eight yearn he continued thus, lie became sick, weajiv and disheartened, but bis pride would not allow him to write home for a-si-aauce. He was at last rediicjJ to sell newspapers upon the street for a living. A lew weeks ago he was at Folsoni street whirf upon the arrival of the mail steamer, and, among the passengers who came ashore, he caught a glimpse of a richly dressed lady whom he thought be knew. He followed her to a hotel, got a fair view, and recogn:zed her as his wife, whom be had not seen1 for oijjht years. lie was poorly dressed, but his affection conqueied his pride, and he imme diately made himself known to her.

California Spirit of the Timen. fcgr During a receut trial at Auburn, the following occurred to vary ihe monotouv die proceedings : Among the witnesses was one, as verdant a specimen of humanity as one would wish to meet with. After u severe cross examination, the counsel for the govern ment paused, and then putting on a look of severity, and then with an omiuous shake of the head, exclaimed : " Mr. Witness, has not nn effort been made to induce you to tell a different story ?" " A different story from what I have told, sir?" "That is what I mean.'' ' Yes, sir, several persors have tried to get me to veil it different story from what 1 'have fob!, but they couldn't' " Now, sir, upon your oath, I wish to know who those persons are.' " Waal, I guess you've tried 'bout as hard as any of 'em." The witness was dismissed, while judge, jury and spectators indulged in a hearty laugh. Ax Irreverent Habit. The following paragraph from the Presbyterian rebukes a practice which, we are sorry to say, is much too common in our own congregations i There is a practice prevailing in our churches which should be at once corrected. I allude to the prepaiations which fnanv persons make to get out of church at the eailiest possible moment, by putting on shawls, coats and cloaks, s as to lose not a moment in getting out. Many of the nvdes rise to receive the benediction, with their hats in their hauds, ready for a start at the earli est possible moment. The benediction should be re, eived with composure and reverence. and at a reasonable time after its close, the members of the congregation may put on their extra garments and look for their hats, and leave the church at a moderate pace, t will possibly require two mimiUs to coin ply wi.h my suggestions. JfAttONAi Cosventios or Gamblers. The strangest thing in the way of convoca tions is a National Convention of Gamblers, which the Chicago Democrat assures us is in session in that city. Although they are ' hard cases," they are said to U fine look ing fellows, sleek, fat and jeweled. There will be two important mattors to come Op before the Convention One will be the revision of the old rules aud the adoption of new ones for the various games. The rules are construed differently in differ ent States. Several lives have been lost in broils arising from this difference in their interDretation. Uniformity of construction is demanded by (he delegates. The other will be the non-interference of professional gamblers in politics, Theie will be a very warm debate upon this subject. " Ma, is aunty got bees in her mouth!" " No j why do you ask such a question ?" ' 'Cause that leetle man with a heap o' hair on bis face cotched bold of her and said he was goiug to take the boncy from her lips; and she said, ' well, make haste!' Sknatoks Jones of Iowa and Dot oi.au of Illinois. A controversy having been engeu lered up between these Senators, neat tha close of Ihe Illinois canvass, it has been olcne l, so far as " paper pellets of thi brain" tie concerned, after the following ea-ily un lerstood and unequivocal style, by Secatui Junes : Tuis, Sir, is the third time T"U bsve made, tnj mouily 'the accu-tations against me, aud that I have been compelled to fasten the I t upon Jo'i, Taough you may, at the sacrifice of democratic organisation, have effected triumph in your Sta'o, h you pay.

A Hard Case. They have in jail, in Pittsburg, Pa., a man uanfml Shaw, who formerly lived in North Alabama, and while living there became acquainted with a negi i fellow named Wash, belonging to Mr. G. 0 Riglanl, of Tirscflmbia. Shaw removed from Alabama to Pittsburg, and there fell in with and recognized Wash, who bad run away from Mr. Kigland. Ife informed th. latter of the presence of his b"j in Pittsburg, and was by Kigland comuiis-inned to appre hend and bring bin biek. He did not at tempt it in Pennsylvania, however, but wait ed until Wash made a visit to Missouri, whither he followed, arrested him, and re turned hinf to Ragl.tnd, and received there for 8500 the proof being undeniab'e that Wash was Mr. ll iglanl's ruoawiy negro.

With the restlessness aud love of adven ture whish characterize tho American people au expedition is now fitting out in Ne York by a number of enterprising young men, of various traues and professions, for otjthe .lettleuicnt of owe of the Papuan Islands,. ta Central Oceanica. They propose to g into tho cultivation of sugar, eottou, coffee. and other tropical product, and to establish a free port for tha supply and refitting of- American whaling ships iu the Pacific, and for a general trade. The Island which the' colonists have fixed upm is said to be very fertile and beautiful, and is not claimed by any European power, a few powerless and inoffensive natives occupying it, who wilt welcome peaceful adventurers. The enter prise is a novel one, and its progress will be watched with interest. An intelligent writer upon the subject says that the colored people of Jamaica ar not satisfied with the bare equality of civil and religious rights, but aspire to their exclusive enjoyment. Not content with ac quiring lands by froe sale aud purchase, aud by squatting on lauds which twenty year ago Were valuable plantations, though now abandoned to the first comer, they wish to force the proprietors of estates still undet cultivation to dispose of tho remains of their property exclusively in favor of tho colored "sons of the soil," menacing the colony, iu the event of coutinued recusancy', with the fate of Uatl.
