The tras turned down till only a tiny tongue of flamo remained, hut in the grate a fire burned cheerfully, casting a pleasant glow through the room, and through the door and along the halls from the par- lors twyonit came the sound of gay' voices, ripples of light laughter, and fragments of There a hush presently, as some one began to sing, and Captain Adiir said JlcClennan's oiee." A good voice, jit't touched witli a soft Celtic tlm words were the words of that sweetest song ever sung. "The Irish Emigrant's Lament." Did its tender pilhos touch any long experience in his own life, that the finger's voice trembled so over the lines? And what was it that made Dennis Adiir's face change as he listened "I'm sittini: nn Hie Jlnry, vhcre wo snt niilc hr sMc, On n liriglit'Mny morning long wlun first ton w crc my lintlc.

THE LITEEATUBE OP DEEAMS. A curious book In-, just been published in London, entitled "The Literature and Cu- rio-Hies of Dreams a Commonplace T3ook of Speculations concerning the Jlystcry of Dreams, and Notes on the Various Modes of Interpretation adopted in Ancient and Jlod- eru Times, by frank Scafield, 51. A." The London Athen.i'iim describes it'as a vivid and singular compilation." The author is not a theorist, like the late Sir Wni. Moles- worth, hut a collector. It is his boast that hu neither put hiuibclf forward as a dis- coverer nor "ought hii mm plory as a Fcribe; hut he claims the 'credit of collecting into onu all that is best worth knowing as to tho fads of the case. Among his stories arc the following. oi.n un cnoMwiLi.. Peter Stcrry dreamed that "Oliver Crom- well was to bo placed in which he foolishly imagined to be the true nnd real heaven abote; but it liippcnnl to be the carnal heaven at the end of Westmin- ster Unit, where his head was fixed after the restoration. There were at that time two victualling houses at the end of Hall, under the Kxcheqttor, the one called Heaven and the other I loll. to the former Oliver's head was fised, Jau. oO, 1GGO. nn. itAitrnr. "When Dr. Harvey, one of the Physicians' College in London, being a young man, went to travel towards 1'adua, he went to Dover, with several others, and showed his pass, as the rest did, to the Governor there. The Governor told him that lie must not go, but he must keep him The Doctor desired to know for what reason? iioiv he had "Well, it was his will lo have it so." The packet-boat hois-ted sail in the evening, which was very rlear, and the Doctor's companions in it. There en- sued a terrible storm, and the packet-boat and tho passengers were drowned. The next day tho Bad news was brought to Dover. The Doctor was unknown to the Governor, both by name and fact but the night before the Governor had a perfect vision of the Doctor in a dream, who came to pass over to Calais, and that he had a warning to stop him. This the Governor told to tho Doctor the next day. Some experiments, made with a view to induce dreaming under conditions in which thu results could bc-uoted, wcriunada on the. person. of yi. "Maury. AVhilc M. Maury wan atleep, his external organs weru subjected to various kinds of irritation.. Thus: 1. His lips and noso being tickled by his coadjutor with a feather, he dreamed that lie was subjected to Imrriblo tortures that a pitch piaster was applied to his face, which was then roughly withdrawn, denuding the lips and chocks. 2. A pair of tnccrrrs, be- ing struck to his ears by scissors, he dreamed that he heard the' ringing of bells, which speedily chanpcd into tho tocsin, and suggested June, 1S48. H Ucing made 'to smell can dc cologne, he dreamed that lib was in tho shop of a which led the fancy to the Kast. and to the nhop of Jean Imrina, in Cairo -I. 35eing made lo fccl'Uic heat, and smell of a burning mich, and the wind at the jame time being whistled through the shutters, he dreamed that he was at sea, and that the powder-room of tho vessel blew up. tt. Hjg ueck being slightly pinched, ho dreamed that a bitter was ap- plied aud then there arose the recollection of a phytieian who had treated him in 3 outh. G. A piece of red hot iron being held close to li'a face fur such n length of time as to communicate a slight heat, he dreamed of bandits who got into houses aud applied hot irons to tho feet of in order to extort money from them. Thii idea sng- that of the Duchess d'Abrantes, who he had conceived had chosen as secretary, in uho.-c memoirs he had read of chauSTeiirs, or bandits who burned people. 7. The word parafaramous" being pronounced close to his car, ho heard nothing but on a repeti- tion of the attempt while in bed, the word "inanian" was followed only by a dre.im of the hum of bees. AVhcn the experiment wus repented tome days subsequently, and when he was falling asleep, he dreamed of two or three words, Azor, Castor, Leo- which were attributed to the interlo- cutors in his dream. The sound of "chan- ilelle, awoke him while pronounc- ing the words e'est but without any recollection of the idea attached to the ex- pression. 8. A drop of water falling ou the brow suggcoted a dream of Italy, great thirst, nnd a draught of Onietto. 9. A light, surrounded by a red paper, being re- peatedly passed before his eyes, he dreamed of a storm of lightning, which reproduced a violent tempest which he had encountered between Jlorlaix and llmre. Tint dreams are not quite independent of the will, appears from the singular case of Thomas Kcid, of 1'diiiburgh II1X.UI3 SOT INDEPENDENT OF THE WILL. About the ago of fourteen I was almost ci ery night unhappy in my sleep from fright- ful dreams. Sometimes hanging over a frightful precipice, and just ready to drop dow n nomelimcs pursued for my life, and stopped by a wall, or by a sudden of all strength sometimes rciidy to be devoured by a wild beast. How long I was plagued with such dreams I do not now recollect. I believe it was for a jcar or two at least and I think they had quite left me before I was sixteen. In those days I was much given to what Mr. Additon, in one of his Spectators, calls and in my evening solitary walk which was gen- erally all the exercise I took, my thoughts would hurry me into sonic active sccuc, n here I generally acquitted in) self much to my own satUfaction and In these scenes of imagination I performed many a gallant ex- ploit. At the same time in my dreams .T found myself the arrant coward that ever was. Not only my courage but my strength failed me, in every danger and I often rose from my bed in the morning in fiicli a panic, that it took some time to get the better of it. I wished very much to get rid of these uneasy dreams which not only made mo very unhappy in my sleep, but often left a disagreeable impression on my mind for sonic part of the following day. 1 thought it worth trying whether it was to recollect that it was all a dream, and that I was in no real danger. I often went to sleep with my mind as strongly impressed with this thought as I could, that my lifetime was in any real dan- ger, and that every fright 1 hail was a dream. After many frnillc'3 endeavors to recollect this when the danger appeared, I effected it at last, and have often, when I was sliding over a precipice into the abyss, recollected that it was a dream and boldly jumped down. The effect of this commonly was, that I im- mcdialely awoke. Unt I awoke calm and intrepid, which I thought a great acquisition. After this my dreams were never uneasy, and in a bhort lime I dreamed not at all. During all this time I was in perfect health." and Wife. The theory of man and wife, that special theory in accordance with which the wife is to bend hcreclf in loving submission before her husband, is very beautiful and it would Itc good altogether if it could only be arran- ged that the husband should be the stronger and the greater of the two. The theory is bnjcd upon the hypothesis and the hypoth- esis sometimes failf of confirmation. In ordinary marriages the rights itself, and the stronger and greater lakes tho lead, whether clothed in -petticoit-s, or in coat, waistcoat and trowscrs; but there sometimes comes a terrible shipwreck, when the woman before marriigc has filled her- self full with ideas of submission, and then finds that her golden headed god has got an iron body and feet of A'cnVio. opcna a man's mouth, nnd if it delivers foul words, thalli because they arc in InlluonCc'or Plcasnro at Homo. Self-control and discipline most be learned al license in after life will surely follow. Let home be the nursery of truth, of refinement, of simplicity and taile, Study to make it attract'ire to your children by every means in your power, add lose no op- portunity for improving their minds and culth atiug their homo aflecticm3. Let sys- tem and.order, industry and ,taste and refinement, be cultivated at home, and comfort, aud peace will reign within your dwelling, however humble. Do your chihlrqii lol o musie, or drawing, qr (lowers, encourage their taste to the ut- most ability. Indeed, wiicre the love of pervades nnd is judiciously cultivated, it is an important aid in the training of children for the child whose soul is touched with melody easily yields to tho voice of affection and seldom requires se- verity. More than this, the hnrih tones of the father's voice as it and the cutting tones of the mother as she forbids, become milder nnd moro persuasive, if ac- customed to join with their children in these recreations, aud' thus both parents and children are mutually refined and elevated. Let me add that I cannot any purer enjoyment than is felt by the head of a family, as wife and children gather a- bout him, and pour forth their sweet voices in songs and praise at the morning sacrifice and the evening oblation. If the father has money lo spare, I do nut doubt that he might make a good investment in a piano, a mclodeon, or sonic other musical instru- ment, to accompany the voice of his wife and children, provided always that practice on these instruments be not allowed lo iu- torfore with tho practice at the kneading- trough, the wash-tub, or with any other doty that a true woman, be she daughter, sister, wife, or mother, ought to understand. These duties and these- pleasures arc in no legrec incompatible with each other, or out of keeping with a fanner's home. What- ever tends to develop the intellect, to refine the taste and purify the affections, may find a fitting place in every farmer's house. If he has wealth, none has a better right to adorn his walls with the gems of art, and surround his home with nil that is beautiful iu cultivated nature. Birth-places of Leading Radicals. A correspondent of the Hartford Times gives the following list of birth-places of leading agitators Maine, then, claims 113 her otrn native son, Hannibal there ever should be nny dispute about that.

'Wade Hampton., ,_ General Wado Hampton of South -Car- olina, being about to leave that State for ur uncertain' period, has issued an address tcr his fellow-citizens thanking them for tho largo" vote they gave him for Governor. He says he'was not a candidate, hating -withdrawn, in favor of Mr. Orr, who consented to run at the earnest request of tho State Conreu- tion, nnd at great personal inconvenience.- Gen. If. gives other reasons for refusing to be a candidate.. Among them the following: "I was unwilling to" do atfy thing might cause a political contest in the State. I thought that no good could arise at homo from such a contest, whilst it might do us infinite mischief abroad. The President of the United Slates had cxhifcited not'only strong disposition to protect the South from tho radicalism of the North, bub to reinstate us in our civil and political righta. I feared- that my election by embarrassing him his labors and policy might incidentally do barm to Hie Stale." Gen. Hamilton then proceeds (o give Ms' ideas of what he conceives to be tho duty of tho people of the State under present cumstaitccs. Tho following IB what he nays i on the subject .1 "For years past it been tho boast of'' our State that there was but one party with- in her limits. Commendable and vital us that elate of affairs wan during the war, it is scarcely, if at all, .loss BO now.
