We will sec," and cross- ng over to the gsy scene, be entered the lall. He cast off his overshoes, banded his cloak and cap lo a servant, and unannounc ed, mingled with the beiuly and fashion that thronged the rooms. Gradually making his .vay through the crowd, he sought a group, n the cetilre of which stood a briclil and beautiful being, the queen in loveliness of mat brilliant assembly. 1 lie bloods or the East End flocked about her seeking for an spproving glance from those dreamy blue eyes ; half abstracted, she answered or spoke upon the topics of conversation, without ap parent interest. Suddenly she started, and blushed deeply, dropped a "half courtesy," in token of recognition lo some one without the group. Her eyes no longer languid ; now sparkling with animation, and as our naval friend entered the group about ber, lie laid her liny gloved hand in his, saving, "Welcome, Ferris wo bad feared tbtt your sailing orders hsd taken you lo sea, Ibis bleak weather." We should not have lifted anchor with out first paying tribute to our queen," was tne gallant reply. A litter ran through Ihe circle or exclu- vea at his flnnearance anions, litem, but when the lady approved, there was no room for complaint. The ear acenes oi the nigni wore on ; everal times had Ferris Harvard complete r nut at fault the shallow-brained fops around him, placing them in anything but an enviable light. t erns Harvard was a lieutenant in tne Navy, and depended entirely on his pjy as an officer to support a widowed mother and a young sister, to both ol whom ho waa de votedly attached, ins latner was a sen made man had once been a successful merchant, who sailed and freighted some of the heaviest tonned vessels Dial lell Hie port of Boston, but misfortune and sickness over, look him, and he sunk iu the grave, leav ing bis only son lo protect his mother and sister from the wants and ills of life. Ferris had enjoyed a liberal education, and having entered Ihe Navy as a Midshipman, had been raised to a l.ieul. by reason oi Ins su perior acquirements and good conduct. His profession had led him lo all parts.of Iho world, and lie had careluiiy improved nts advantages thousli, constrained by reason of limited means, to the practice of the most rigid economy. He had met with the only daugnicr oi Harris Howell, one of the wealthy citizens of Boston,. nt. a fete given on board the ship to which be belonged, and had immediately became enamored of her, but he well knew in Ins own heart tho difference in their for tunes formed a barrier lo his wishes. He had been a casual visitor for several months subsequent lo t lie time our story commenc es. at the house ol Ihe Howell lamiiy. "I must Hunk of her no more, said I cr ris to himself. "If sneered nt by her friends, for offering her common civilities with what contempt would her austere pa rents receive a proposition for her hand from one so poor I" Air Howell was indeed a slern old man. and yet be was said to be kind lo the poor giving freely of his bounty for the relief o! Ihe needy. Still he was a strange man ; he seldom spoku lo those around him, yet he evinced the warmest love lor his only child. and Anne, too, loved her father with an ar dent affection. Ills delight was to pore over bis library, living, as It were, in ihe fel lowship of the old philosophers. On sever al occasions, wnen rerrls was at ins house, and engaged in conversation with Anne, bej had observed the old man's eves bent stern i ly upon him, and ho would sink within him . as he would awake to the reality of his situation, I erris was one evening on' Beacon slreel at Ihe house of Mr Howell, where in spile of the cold reception he received from some, he slill enjoyed himself lu Ihe belief that Anno was not indifferent to his regard.; He had been relating lo her, al her requesl, Ins experience Willi different national char ar.ter. uilh ivlinrn lift h.rl m.l .n.-ilrln-, nt their neciiliarilip. ami -t.r.riliiiiiT llift v.rt. ous scene effects of different .countries Anne sat riear a awert geranium whose! leasee she waa, industriously engaged in de- slroyitig.

The.ffoivcf 'was placed itext to his heart and he left Ihe apartment. Ho had proceeded but a few steps from the Ikiujo when he was accosted, by a poor mendicant, clothed In rags, who Was expos ed hi that late hour of Ihe nljhl to the in clemency of Ihe season, "Pny, sir," ssid the beggar lo Ferris, "can you give mo a trifle t I an nearly starved and chilled through by tie night air." Ferris, after a few moments conversation with the beggar, for be had not the heir! lo turn away from the sufferings of a fel low creature, and handing him a purse, containing some five or six dollars, urged blm to seek immediate shelter and food. The beggar blessed him and passed on. A few nights subsequent to litis occur rence he wss again al her father's house. Mrs Howell, Anne's mother, received him as she did most of her visitors, with a some what constrained and distant welcome. Deing a woman of no (-real conversational potters, she a hi ays retired .early, conduct. ing her intercourse with aoeiety in ihe most formal manner, Ferris was much surpris ed that Mr Howell hid faken no particular nolice of his intimacy at his house, for he seldom saw him, and when he could Ihe old man's eyes brnt sternly on him, in any thing but a friendly and invitinir spirit. In this dilemma, he was at a loss what course to pursue, since Anne's acknowledgment of her affection for him, and now he had succeeded in this, he was equally distant from Iho coal of his happiness, for bis belter jodgmeut told him thai the consent of her parents could never be obtained, un thia occasion he had taken his leave as usual, when ho waa met by Ihe beggar or Ihe for mer nishl. who again solicited alms, declar ing that he could find no one else to assist him, and that the money before bestowed upon mm nan been expended lor lood anil rent of a miserable cellar where he bad lodged.

Nol long subsequent. Ferris called one evening al the houso of Mr Howell, and fortunately found Anne aud her father alone, the former engaged on a piece of embroidery of a new pattern, and iho latter poring over a volume of ancient philosophy, On his entrsnce the old gentleman took no lurlher apparent notice of him than a slight inclination or the head and a "good even ing, sir.

He proceeded lo (hat nart of the room where Mr Howell aal, and after a few intro ductory remarks, said : "You have doubtless observed, sir, my in timacy in tour family for more than a year past. From the fact that you did nol ob ject to my attentions to your daughter, I have been led to hope that it might not be altogether against your wishes. May I ask sir, with due respect, your opinion in this mailer." "I have often seen you here," replied Mr Howell, "and hare no reason to object to your visits, air r "Indeed, air, you are very kind.

This waa of course all mystery to Anne, hut when explained, added to her lote for her luturc husband. Female IMiicalion. An anecdote we have seen recently of Or. Sliles, moves our, spirits anew on ihe object oi female Education, we arc not isposed lo deny that a degree or attention as been paid to female education in our country, which has raised tho female por tion of Ihe community as a whole, to an elevation shore what they occupied a cen tury, or half a century ago. There is more intellectuality, and less of the puerile, whin ing, superstitious ignorance, with the com tnonality of women. But the few-who irrre educated, in former times, were belter educated than the many now. J heir education embraced more or be substantial and practical In life, ti Inch s useful, honorable, and lovely. Msy wo not do well to retain our hold upon so much of the past as is great and good, and ever remember, for our instruction, the practical characters of Ihe noblest women of ancient recce aud Rome 1 Out wo are often tnado heart sick by the iglit of realities which como within our now ledge. A young woman works at beau calching, and cnlcra into wedlock. Hut she is nol truly speaking a wife, a help meet unto the man she calls husband. She as no underslstiding nf the meaning of that companionship in lire, which belongs to the relation or husband and wire, btie as no thought or interest for the pleasure. prosperity and happiness of her husband, bul only in her own capricious whims, and her dress and show lor the eyes ol other men and women. Her most animated discourse in company is about jewelry, and dresses, and bonnets ; she draws from her husband's earnings for costly apparel, which she casts off and re places with new as often as milliners choose lo change Ihe rashons, or ss her own Taney is inclined lo something new. Her raving and fretting drives all peace from her hus band's hours nt home, unless he gratifies her extravagant and ainrul d.m.naf .ii I. harraased, ond perhaps beggared, by the roily and wickedness of her who should have doubled his enjoyments and fostered his interests.

Fehale CuLTunc. The entertainments of all ages are reading, conversation, and thought. If our existence after middle life is not enriched by these, it becomes mea gre and dull indeed. And Ihese will prove sources of pleasure just in proportion to previous intellectual culture. How is that mind to hare subject matter of pleasurable thought during ils solitary hours, which has no knowledge of Ihe treasures or literature and science, which has made no extensive acquaintance with the distant and the past? And what is conversation between those who know nothing J Bul, nn the other hand, what delight is that mind ablo lu re ceive and impart, which is able lo discuss any topic that comes up, with accuracy. copiousness, eloquence, and beauty I The woman who possesses this power can nev er Tail to render herself agreeable and useful in any circle Into which sho may be thrown-; and when she is so, she cannot fail to be happy. A ful mind, a lame heart, and an, eloquent tongue, arc among the most precious of human things. The young forsake their sporis and gslher around, the old draw nich to bear, and all involuntarily bow down to the supremacy of minu. mesa endowments -add brilliancy lo youth and beauty, and when all other charms are departed, Ihey mako old age aa cred, venerable, and beloved. ' What Education should be. Educa tion unaccompanied by moral training is liko a sword in the hand of a roadman and yet, grieved am I lo titter il, muoii of the education ot our country is or this sort.

Uy glancing at any recent mp of Alia California, the reader will perceive that there is a large in land tract, extensivo enough to form sever al States of the largeal class, described as unexplored. On some maps it is designat ed as "The Great Interior Basin of Cali. fornla," in some marked as inhabited Jiy mo "l aiiutas. ne river una tuns aldu? its southern border, the Calor.dn ihroiinl, its eastern; the Great Salt Lake lies at tie northeast corner, Pyramid Lake at its north western. The old Spanish trail from San- la I e to the Pacific runs near it. Until re cently this region has belonged to Mexico; now it forms a part of the possessions nflhe United Slates. It is a vast, unexplored, unknown wilderness. Fremont and others have skirted its borders, Mexican trading and exploring patties hate been upon all sides of It, but no while man has ever pene trated this mysterious region and returned. II is the land to which Whiltier ai littier applied his lines "Vast regions yet untrodden, Great Lakes whose mystic shores The Bason rifle never heard, Nor dip of Saxon oars." It is the terra incognita of our Continent. From time lo lime adventurous traders and trappers, who had penetrated lo its borders, have brought back strsnoe. thrilline. half incredible accounts of sights seen there, aim tales nesrd Irom Ihe native Indians or Ihe region round. They have represented that according lo the accounts of Indians, who hare penetrated this mysterious region, it is Inhabited liy a compact and well or ganjzed population, Hying-in cities strongly fortified, under a stringent government. The cities are said to be adorned by mas sive and gorgeous palaces, and temples pro fesely adorned wilh gold and emeralds. Some traders hare even pretended lo havo seen one city from distant heights, and lo have been turned back by the inhabitants on attempting to approach it. These ru mors would hare passed unnoticed, as mere idle talcs, utterly incredible, bat for their striking similarity to the well authenticated accounts of the inhabitants of Mexico at the lime of its first discovery by the Span iards. Ignorsnt trappers could hardly be supposed lo be acquainted wilh the history of Mexico; and' when il was found that their accounts of the basin of California answered ao perfectly lo tho well known condition of the basin of Mexico at the time nf ils discovery, attention was excited, and even many judicious men thought these stories might be something more thsn "trav eler's tales." However Ihe matter was al lowed to alumbcr without investigation un til this region of romance waa ceded to the Uiilied Stales. The No. of the "Spirit or the Times" for last week contains under the heading of "Gold mines of the Gila," what purports lo be an extract from a work about to be pub lished by Mr C. W. Webber. Tho extract contains a summary of all the information which has been gleaned concerning the California basin ; and to il we are indebted for Ihe following particulars. hen Mexico was conquered by Cortez, -j-"' ii possession of l-'"1 ,lulnber r precious emeralds. Some Sent tO Spain by CoMCZ. UTB said to """ retained as among the most valuable ofthe crown jeivels." The conquerers coold , n le"n "om "eneo tne nattvea procured iiicsc jeweis. a ne aziecs would never re veal the mines, and,all knowledge of them was finally lost, Bul il seems that of laic emeralds have occasionally been brought lo lucxico uy inuians irom trie north, who as sen mat ueyonu ine mountains they are plenty. This would point to the California basin as the real nflhe minrs. An eminent dignitary of the Catholic church in Mexico is said recently to havo mauo tne lunowing statement to one U Montgomery, who allesls to iho fact.; "At every attempt to do this", (send mis' sionaries into Iho California basini wo hay become more certain that the people of central sjainornia are more civilized than their neighbors, and not only possess among them mines of surpassing value, bul still re- lain llieirold religion, and heathen tempi like those Corlez demolished. Oar mis sionaries have converted Indian captives who have worshipped in them in their youth, and as late as 1630, Ihe son of a female convert of that description, was a priest iu Muchuacan, and as well as his mother, was acquainted with Ihe present liishop of that Stale. This Indian woman always declar ed that, in her country, gold was sacred lo tbe God of fire, and was never used except in his service, but was so abundant that their temples were paved with it. To guard their religion and their country from the gold loving Spaniards, they will not suffer one to enter their country, not even as a missionary," The Bishop of Zacatccas hss said that he has often conrersed with priests of Iho native blood, who have vainly attempted to euter the forbidden region aa missionaries, and who bad actually been north of tho Gila, aud seen in tho diatsnce a stately tem ple, or palace, surrounded by cultivated fields, but were not permitted a nearer ap proach. Theso. missionaries confirmed the rumor of the abundance of gold in that region. The old Church records of Sanle Fe, and Ihe original letters of early missiona ries there, make mention of powerful and intractable Indian tribes in Ihe west (agaiu pointing toward the basin) who are describ ed as worshippers of fire, aud having ex ceedingly rich mines of gold. t Man years ego a Untied Slates explor ing parly on the, borders of Ihe terra incog nita came upon an encampment of ihe fire worshippers, who spoke.ol the golden glo ries of their native valley. Another parly, under Messrs Aherl and Emery, while en camped on Ihe Gila, heard from Indians ru mors of immepse quantities of gold in the bed of the l'ierlot ''Tho hunters of Ken lucky," an accOunl of the adventures of i party ubo crossed the continent of Califor nia, menlions tlio noisy devotions of a tribe of sun worshipping Indians whom they en countered; and also speaka of rumors of rich gold minrs north of the Gils, It Is well known (so says the extract) that, soon after the conquest of Mexico, the Spaniards repeatedly attempted the suhju l t gation of the California basin. -Thsee ex ptdilions were-uniforihly unfortunate ; but Ihe survivors brought back accounts of well built cilics and a nation abounding in gold inhibiting the unconquerable'valley, Tbe extract makes mention of the stories brought by trappers and - traders, also, .to which we have already alluded. Now ho.v much truth there may be in all this, or whether .there Is any, we do not undertake lo decide. But it is certainly very striking that so many accounts, gath ered from such widely different quarters, should not only concur so well with each other, bul with what we may know of the aboriginal inhabitants of Mexico. Here is at least food fur thought; and perhaps an expediiion fitted out to explore, if need be by force, this shadowy region, would be no more on a wild goose chase man me many parlies which haru so recently atarled for the va.ley of Ihe Sacramento, Recollect that , f eather river, and some ol Ihe other tribu taries of the Sacramento, tbe very alreams whose waters glitter wilh the golden sand, take their rise in the mountains on Ibe north and wast of the gnat central basin of California.

In England there are persons generally deposed clergymen or superannuated school masters wno niartu a uuatucr. ut wiiuug sermons lor . ministers or the episcopal Church, who thereby save themselves this labor and gain time for hunting, attending race courses, &c. A good composer can command about five English shillings per sermbn and a Reclor can well afford this, as his living comes by tithes out of tbe pub lic. Some sermon-makers earn twenty or thirty pounds per year by the business. No matter what are their private doetrines or characters be they infidels or knaves if they csn but write sermons conforming lo the standard doctrines of the Church, and they are tolerably well written, so as lo bo read without difficulty, they are sure lo find clerical purchasers. Her.

The eccentric tmt pious iter, uoniana Hill tells, in his Village Dialogues, (vol. ii. p. 137,) a pretty anecdote illustrative or the' dsogcr of too many clergyman purchasing copies or the same sermon lor delivery, It is aa lolluws : "An e'recnous blunder once happened even in Ibe famous University of Cambridge, at what is commonly called tbe bound Church: Dr. Truster has a notable sermon on these words, 'See that ye fall not out by the way.' And so it feel out thst it was preached by different ministers, in the same Sound Church, three Sundays, running. The clerk on the fourth Sundsy admonish ed the preacher not to give 1 hem the fourth edition of 'See thai yo fall nol out by the way,' for that parish was all peaceable. The reply was, thsl he had no other in his pocket, so that Ihe people must hear that or none. The render would not dispute tho probability of this anecdote if he knew after what son of a fashion the Churches in and about the neighborhood of the English Uni versities sre unfortunately served."

Our sympathies are really moved for the destitution, and we, would call Ihe attention of the scientific world to this singular fact.
