Why dues he not stop at home in the bosoui of his family, or, if he has no iitiniiy, acquire one ? It is his duty us a citizen. When a boy runs away from school, it is, of course, the correct thing to call him "intrepid,' "gallant," "high-spirited," and "indo: pendeni,;" but that sort of boy is in reality not-generally speaking-a good boy. It may be very true that a nation owes its nautical supremacy to Uuf degoriplion of youth; but he dosen't run away to' sea from that distant and patriotic motive; he goes to i-ea Dccuuso he di s n't like what is good for him on land; and almost immediately;, though that is beside the question, finds he has made a great mistake. Sim-ilarly,-a man does not gu to Tartary or Kamtchatka to improve his mind; if he ventured to tell mc ihat (suppo.?ing he was not a very tall man, and 1 had no reason to suppose he had a yataghan or any other outlandish weapon concealed about his person), I should laugh in his face. No; he flios to such obscure regions because the restraints of civiliz-a,tion are abhorcnt to hia undisciplined mind, and he has some morbid ta.sle; say, for human flesh-uncooked. The mildest spoken man I ever met in my life, and the greatest truveler, once coh-fided to me, after a moat excellent dinner at our club, that, "after all," there was lothing like uncooked food. He did not xcfy human food, but I knew well enough what he meant. He has repented since of having let out so much, and endeavors to re-assure me by CiiQventionu] behavior and conversation. The world is small," he says (he had been around it two or three timeR^,"atid give him England; for, when all is said, that is the be.Mt place to live in," but this does not deceive me for-a moment. That man is a cannibal at heart. I have soenjhim look at plump and tender people in a very peculiar way, and I would not trust him alone with my T)aby for a small fortiune. That sweet child would take rnnk among the mysterious dssappearances." He would Sjy "How should I know ?" like the trog who HWuUowed the duck's egg ; but I should know better than the duuk. if you think these appreheuKions extreme, you are, of lourse, welcome to your own opinion; some people are more satiguine than others, and al�o more simple.-From "Simpson of Bussorr," James Puyn, in Marpem Magaz'au Bew Vs. Beeoher t'efilt AVoat the 3aan-dal Talk. {f'rom Report of Itit Sptech htfort theAdvito � ry Coancii in t^. Y. JVifcune ) It has come to pass that for so many yenfs I have read of myself, and heard of myself, that I have ceased in some moods to have any actual 'self, and ani projected as an idea before my own mind. And if I shall therefore speak somewhat freely, after the manner of men, about myself, I wish you to consider it a part of that mataphysica which Dr. Poster says is so bad. I have of ten read as if I were reading in a novel about the bad hero, and waked up from the dieam and grimly laughed as 1 asked myself. '<Is it me that they mean; is it possible for a man to live as long as I have and aa openly, and acted upon so largo a theatre, and been agitated by such World-shaking events, and be so utterly misconceived?" I have had the reputation of being a frank man.' It is true that I am a man of very cautious speech, and inay therefore sometime? not have expressed myself intelligently, thougli at other times I have had the reputation of being able to make myself understood. Nevertheless, it has come to pass that I supposed myself to have been more thoroughly canvassed and construed in no very enviable light than it has befallen any of my eotem-porariea. I am very sorry that it should be so. I have no love of being a hero, and I have still less of being such a hero as 1 have been made to be. I tell you that, to hear men talking whether I am or am not guilty makes the very mother-thought of my soul shiver and blush Jn me; for I have that sensibility. I am open to that keenest sense of truth and purity and honor and right, and to be held before a jury, and to sit six long months and to have rained upon me perjury and pi-oi'essional abuse, and to i'eel tluit over tho whole broad extent of this land I was the focal point on whidh journalism whs expending itself, and that, too, not as to whether 1 was Republican or Democrat; not whether I was orthodox or heterodox; not whether this or that system expounded was rightly hold, but whether I was an in-efl'able culprit. I have not been hunted as an eagle is hunted; I have not been pursued as a lion has been pursued, I hav^ not been pursued oven us wolves and foxes. I have been pursued as if I was a maggot in a rotten corpse. And do you Buppoiie that it is human nature to go through months and through years and not feel it? And yet, if it please Gud, who has enabled me to go through the desert and Red Sea, that I slionld go on, God is my judge that I am both willing and I atn able to go on again another five years, for 1 can do all things, Christ strengthening nie, and the life that I nuw live in the flesh I live f'ivilh in the Son of Gud, who loved lue never so much as now.

It iaoue of' the Humorous ameiidiucnis offered yestordiiy by the opponents of the bill, who have fought its pasaage through the House inch by inch. "That a clergyman shall be employed to attend upon the criuiinat, and whenever ho shall report to the sheriff of the county that the criminal has attained that high statu of piety usually felt by criminals going to glory from the gallows, to prevent any possibility of backsliding it shall be the duty of the sheriff to forthwith cany into execution the sentence of the cuurt." The amendment was not adopted.- State Register. Will; m^-i bAiiL m* svMSEx eoz. from the Boitoii Journal. "Why," asks a correspondent, "do you speak of Congressman Oox as Sunset Cox ?" fiie tittute was given to Samuel Sullivan Cox, years ago, and it will probably stick, for Ciix Is always rising. Aside from his Democratic pi't^clivitieSf he is a genial, pleasant man. He was born at Zanesville, Ohio, was graduated at Broun Uuiveraity, ran through the Cnnibridge Law School; finished his studies in Cincinnati, married tt Wealthy Wife from tho heart of Muskingum county'', Ohio, did Europe in four months Wiiii wrote a booK. went to Peru as secretary of legation, served several terms in Congress from Ohio, removed to New York city and was picked up by the Democrats, after a short probation, and was again sent to Congress ' He y was an editor for a short time, aniii^ay 19, 1853, he published in the Ohio Statesman the following gorgeous article, to which he owes his nickname: a great old sunset. What a stormful sunset was that of lost night I How glorious the storm, and how splendid the setting sun 1 We do not remember ever to have seen the like on our round globe. The scene opened in the west, with a whole horizon lull of a golden interpenetrating luster, which colored the foliage and brightened every object in its own rich dyes. The colors grew deeper and richer, until the golden luster was trans formed into a stoiin-cloud, full of finest lightning, which leaped.in dazzling sig-zugs all round and over the city. The wind arose with fury, the slender shrubs and giant trees made obeisance to its majesty. Some even snapped before its force. Tho strawberry beds and grass plots "turned up their whites" to see Zephyrus march by. As the rain came, and the poola�formed, and the gutters hurried oway, thunder roared grandly, and the fire-bells caught the excitement and rung with hearty oho-rous. The South and'the East received the copious showers, ond the West all at once brightened up in a long, polished belt of azure, worthy of u Sicilian jiky. Prese'Tltly a cloud, appeared in the azure belt, in the form of a castellated city. It became more vivid, revealing strange forms of peerless fanes and alabaster terapies, and glorious, rare and grand in this mundane sphere. It reminds us of .Wordsworth's-splendid verse in bis Excursion: 'The appenranca instantiiieously di.s-closed Wos of a mighty city, boldly any a wiMcnicss nt bniidings, sinking fur. And self withdrawn Into a woutlrous depth, Far nnking into splendor without end I' But the city vanished only to (jive place to another islos where tho most beautiful forms of foliage appeared, ini aging a Paradise In the distant and purified air. The sun, wearied of elemental commotion, Fank behind the green plains of the West. The "great eye in heaven," however, went m t down without a dark brow hanging over its departing light. The rich flush of the unearthly light had pa.ssed and the rain hud ceased, wht-n the solemn cliuroh bells pealed, tho laughter of the children, out and joyous after the storm, is heard with the oaiol of birds; while the forked and purple Wv,jpon of the skies still darted illumination' around the Startling College, trying to rival its angels and leap into its dark windows. Candles uro lighted. Tht piano strikes up. Wo feel that it is good to have a home-good to be on the earth where such revelations of beautj and power may be made.
