Beyond the dark Blue seas. Proud Freedom to our land had flown. And chose it for the Brave then formed the nation s Corner Stone and set it by the wave. That when the Pil is anchored there their stepping Stone might be that consecrated Rock of prayer. The bulwark of the free. And there they stood each Pilgrim brow was wan grief and care. And Bent each Manly form but ohm ii the a eight was there Tad woman with her Sweet sad face. An trembling Pale and chill but of there was in that Lone place a sight More touching still the Cheek of childhood Pale with fear and hushed its voice of glee and they Are gone but we Are Here a bulwark for the free. Our Pilgrim sires Are gone yet still a nation in its Pride hath pour d o or every Hill. In a Bright unbroken tide and still their sons shall flood the land while that old Rock appears like a Pilgrim spirit bound to stand the mighty wreck of years and of White floats the wind and wave that hallowed Rock Small be the threshold of the Good and Brave. The bulwark of the free. For on Many a Holiday evening he had seen one or not Ier of these Timber lords lose More in play than his poor father had earned in a year. Three of these men he particularly admired although he knew them not. One was tall and Stout with a red face who passed for the richest Man around. He was called the Stout Ezekiel. He travelled twice every year with build car. Timber to Amsterdam and had the Good Fortune always to make so much better bargains that he could Rise Back in a coach whilst the others went Home on foot. The other was the longest and leanest Man in the whole Forest. To was called the Long sch Lurker and Monk envied him on account of his extraordinary he contradicted the most respectable people and however crowded it was in the Public House required More room than four of the largest for he either thrust both elbows upon the table or stretched his Long limbs on the Bench yet no one dared to interfere with him for he had a vast Quantity of Money. The third Lio Wever was a Haruis Oliie Young Man who was called the dancing King. He had been a a a Oor Man and he served a Timber merchant As a servant then suddenly he became wondrous Rich some said that he had found a Crock of Money under an old a line others asserted that not far from Bingen on the Rhine he had drawn up with a pole such As the raft men sometimes thrust at the fish a parcel filled with Gold pieces and that it belonged to the treasure which lies buried there in Short he had All at once become Rich and was considered a Prince by Young and old. Peter Monk often thought of these three men As he sat lonely in the Pine Wood. Trua they All had faults which caused them to be hated by the people it was their uncommon avarice their want of Benevolence towards debtors and the poor for the Black foresters Are a kind hearted people. But every one knows How it is although they were hated yet they were held in consideration on account of their Money for who could throw away dollars As they did As if they Shook the Money from the Pines ? Quot it shall continue so no longer Quot at last said Peter to himself sadly grieved for the Day before had been a Holiday and All the people were at the inn Quot if i do not find a Green Bough soon i shall surely kill myself. Of if i were Only As respectable and Rich As the Stout Ezekiel or As bold and powerful As the Long Schulker or renowned As the dancing King and like him could throw dollars instead of Kreutzer to the musicians i but where did the fellow get his Money Quot he thought of All sorts of of ways by which he could grow Rich but none pleased him. At last the traditions of people who in Olden times had become Rich through the Hollander Michel and the Little Glassman occurred to him. During his father s life time their poor neighbors came often to visit them and they talked a great Deal of Rich people and How they became Rich. In these legends the Little Glassman often played a part indeed when he reflected he could almost still remember the verse which should be repeated at the Summit of the Pine Mountain in the Middle of the Forest to summon him treasure keeper of Tanne Buhl hundreds of years thou St Here held Rule. Though thine All lands where fir Trees stand they took in Peter Munk who begged a night s lodging without asking his name or dwelling gave him cider to drink and at the evening meal set before him a great Mountain cock the Best game of the Black Forest. After the supper the housewife and her daughters placed themselves with their distal a around the Brilliant fire which the Young a a eople continually replenished with Pine Knols the Grandfather the guest and the master of the House smoked and looked at the women the lad occur Neil himself with carving spoons and Forks from Wood. Without in the Woods the storm howled and raged through the firs. They Hoard now and then a heavy fall and it seemed often As if whole Trees were so slitting and crashing together. The youths wished to Spring out into the , to see this frightfully Beautiful spectacle the Grandfather held them Back by Strong looks and words. Quot i advise no one to go from the door Quot said he to them Quot he would never come Back alive for the Hollander Michel cuts to night a new raft from the the Young people gazed at him they might have heard of the Hollinder Michel i before but they now untreated Ehni to Tell them All about him. Peter Munk who on the other Side of the Wood had Only heard a Rumor of him also joined with them and begged the old Man to Tell him who and what he was. Quot he is the lord of these Woods and i conclude you were born on the other Side of Tanne Buhl or that you Are now far from your Home to have lived till your age without hearing of Bini. But i will Tell you what 1 know of the Hollander Mii Diel and what the Wise ones say of him. A Hundred years ago at least so it is related there were no More honorable peo Jile far and wide upon the Earth than the Black foresters. But since there is so much Gold in tiie land the men Are dishonest and wicked. The Young men dance anti frolic on sunday and swear so that it s frightful to hear them. Once it was otherwise but even if now he wire looking in at the Wii Low i say it and have often said that the Hallander Michel is guilty of All of this Corr there lived Ai out the same time a Rich Timber merchant who had Many labourers. He traded far Down the Kue and his business was blessed for he was a Good Liere came to his door one evening a person such As has sad never seen. He was dressed like the Black foresters hit he was a Good head taller than they and no one Ever Luli eved it possible such a giant could . He begged the Timber merchant to take him into service. The merchant looked at him saw that he was Strong and capable of great labor agreed to give him a certain Reward and the bargain was struck. Never had a Timber merchant such a Workman As Michel. He was equal to three at Wood cutting and when six men could lift one end of a log he alone could lift the other. After he had Cut Wood for a half year he came to his master one Day and said to him have i not Cut Wood Long enough for you ? and will you not permit me to go Down the Stream with the raft to see what becomes of tote Timber Quot the Timber merchant answered i will not stand in your Way Michel if you wish to go out into the world. I certainly need Strong men like you As Wood cutters but on the raft it depends upon skill. Go for this time Quot and so it was. The raft upon which he was to depart Quot a last a Rewth to Lull and Valley As on ii Hei Dit 1 stand i Iki Seii Forth to join and rally my firm devoted this flashed like lightning upon Peter and he started up rushed out of the House imagining he could not have heard Arigrit. Sprang upon the three youths and sized the Singer quickly and rather roughly by the Arm. Quot Stop Friend Quot cried he Quot How did you rhyme stand do me the kindness to Tell me what you Are Quot Why do you attack me fellow Quot replied the forester Quot i can sing what i will and let go my Arm or Quot Quot no thou shall t Tell me what thou Hast Sung Quot cried Peter almost frantic grasping him still More strongly. The other two As they saw this delayed no longer but fell with their fists upon poor Peter and gave him a Quot Jound drubbing till he let go his hold upon the Singer and Sank upon his Knees exhausted. Quot Hast thou had thy share Quot said they laughing Quot now remember foolish fellow never attack people like us on the Highway Quot a if i shall certainly remember it Quot said Kohlen Peter sighing Quot but As 1 have had the beating be so Good As to repeat Dimiti Nutly what you were thou they laughed out anew and mocked at him but he who had Sung the song repeated it to him and they went Laug Liing and singing on their Way. Quot so mini Quot said the poor beaten one whilst he painfully raised himself Quot hand with stand now Little Glassman we a �?�11 again speak a word he went into the hut for his hat and his Long stick took leave of the inmates and traced his Way Back towards the Tanne Buhl. He went slowly and thoughtfully along the Road meditating upon his verse. At length As he already had the District of the Tanne Buhl and the Pines Prew i Fifer and thicker he suddenly hit upon a rhyme and fairly jumped for Joy. At this moment there came Forward fro Iii behind the Pines a Gigantic Man in a Floater s dress and carrying in his hand a stick As Long As a Mast. Peter Munk almost fell on his Knees As he saw Liim draw near with slow Steps for he thought this must be Hollander Michel and no other. The formidable a Paragiou s Ake not and Peter occasionally cast at him a timorous glance lie was a head taller than the tallest Man Peter had Ever seen his countenance was no longer Young neither was it old but full of furrows and wrinkles he wore a Linen jacket and immense boots which were drawn up Over his leather breeches As Peter Well remembered in the tradition. Quot Peter Munk what Doest thou in Tanne Buhl Quot at length asked the Wood King in a deep sepulchral voice. Quot Good morning countryman Quot answered Peter endeavouring to appear undisturbed Thounh trembling violently. Quot i would return Home through the Quot Peter Munk Quot replied lie and threw a terrible piercing look upon him Quot thy path lies not through these Quot not exactly so Quot said he Quot but As it grew very warm i thought it would be cooler Quot i it in not Kohlen Peter Quot cried Hollander Michel in a thundering tone Quot or i will strike thee with this stick to the Earth do you imagine i did not see you begging of the Little one Quot then he added More softly Quot go go that was a foolish act and it was Well that you didst not know the Little the from the Boston Atlas. Cold heart. Translated from the German of Wilhelm Hauff in travelling to rough Swabia do not neglect to visit the Black Forest not merely to see the Trees though one Sel but Strain his memory As he might not another word could he rec ill. He often thought whether he should not ask this or that old Man How the verse ran but he always had a certain dread of betraying his thoughts and he also concluded that Ilie Glassman was not Muslih Novau aug that very few could be familiar with the verse for there were not Man j Rich people in the Forest and Why had not his Tatlier and the other poor people tried their Luck he once brought his Mother to speak of the Little Man. She told him what he already knew though she remembered Only the first line of the magic verse and moreover that Only to those born on sunday Between eleven and two o clock would the Little spirit show himself. He said she was born at midday and if he Only knew the rhyme the Glassman would probably come at his Call. As the Coal Burner Peter Munk heard this he was nearly beside himself for Joy and eagerness to undertake the adventure. It seemed to him sufficient to know a part of the verse and to be born on sunday and he was certain that the Little spirit would show himself to Idin. Therefore when he sold his Coal one Day he kindled no new Heap but put on his father s gala jacket and new red stockings a placed his sunday hat u on his head and with his five feet tall Blackthorn stick in his hand he took leave of his Mother saying Quot i must go up to the office in the City where those who were Draughter for soldiers must soon draw lots and there i will impress it upon the Bailis Quot that you Are a widow and i am your Only his Mother praised his Resolution and he away to the Tanne Buhl fir Mountain the Tanne Buhl forms the highest Elevation of the Black poorest and at the time was composed of eight joints All of which were of the largest a Tiggard the Little churl he never gives much Timber. But what Hap ened one evening the tall Michel a joyous. Peter thou Art brought to the water eight beams thicker and longer than and i pity thee in my soul for a livelier finer had Ever before been seen each of which he carried Over a a a a a a opt his shoulder As easily As a fishing pole so that All the people charcoal when others can shake from their sleeve Many were astonished. Where they were Cut no one knows to a a this Day the Timber merchant saw these beams Sechser three Farthings it is a wretched he As Delight and reckoned what each would snug. A i a thou Art rights it is a miserable Michel said As i am to go Down upon the raft i should therefore Trust yourself to me Quot continued not go safely on Little thin boards. The merchant wished fearful Michel "1 have helped Many Brave lads out of to give him a pair of footers boots As a recompense but he a a a Hou wouldst not be the first say at once i Drew Forth a pair which my grand Hundred thales you desire at first Quot weighed a Hundred pounds and were together the Gold in his immense pockets and again Peter he ird the tempting Clink Asiu his dream. His heart heat painfully and fearfully he became to lire them aside and father has assured me five feet Ion the raft was off Quot and if Michel had before filled the Wood cutters with wonder the floaters were now As much alternately warm and cold hut the Hollander Michel a eared astonished for instead of moving slowly Down the River As As if he would give the Money out of compassion without one. Would have supposed necessary from its immense beams desiring any thing in then occurred to him the As soon As it Camei tothe Neckar it darted off Quot like an Arrow mysterious words of the old Man about the Rich men and Arij where the Neckar weds Aru Piid adj tie flu Leri fur thrill la will due Pressi did to Baid Quot my mercy had had trouble to keep their rafts in the Middle of thanks sir but with you i will have nothing to do i know the Stream that they might not ground upon the Sand and Yon now Quot and ran As As he could. The Wood spirit gravel Michel at once sprang into the water moved it with a Trode with immeasurable Steps after him muttering in a a Jerk right and left so that without danger it glided by. Hollow threatening tone Quot thou Wilt yet rejment it Peter when the Channel was straight he outran All the others put upon thy forehead it is written in thine eyes one can read Ting aside their poles and i lacing his giant beam in the it thou escapes me not. Run not so fast heir Only one gravel and with a Spring it flew along so that land and reasonable word we have already reached my Trees and villages seems i to sweep by them. In half the time but As Peter heard this and saw not far from him a Little grave that it usually required they arrived a Cologne on the Rhine he quickened his Steps to get beyond the limits so that at where they generally sold to licit freight but Here Michel fast Quot Michel had to run and pursued him with oaths and said to them i menaces. The Young Man made a desperate s ring Over the Quot you Are indeed merchants and understand your own Prave As he saw the Wood spirit with his Long pole up interest do Yon imagine the colognes use All the Timber nosed As if he would dash him to the Earth he arrived comes from the Black Forest for themselves no they a it on t be other Side and the pole shivered to pieces in the buy it of you for one half its value and sell it for a much Quot re is if against an invisible Wall and one Long fragment larger sum in Holland. Let us sell Here the Small Timber of a Quot beyond Peter. And carry the other to Holland what Money we take above i triumphantly he raised it to throw at the Gigantic Michel tie usual Price is our own profit but in a moment he Felt the piece of stick move in his hand Quot so spake the artful Michel and All the others agreed to amazement he saw it was a huge Snake which he it some because they wished to visit Holland and others on Quot lat with foaming Mouth and lighting Eye wound they Are taller than the generality of men Broad shouldered Strong climbed and it seems As if the strengthening single hut a the superstitious people believed it unsafe to dwell there. So High and magnificent were these firs. A a in. �?z1 that the Wood cutters felled them reluctantly and it often Ike would san from the handles and strike into their feet or the Trees would be suddenly overthrown wounding and maiming or quite killing the men in their from this place the finest Wood for fuel could be obtained though not a single stick would ship builders use for the tradition says that men and ships Are unlucky if any Timber from the Tanne Buhl goes with them into the water. Therefore it is that the Trees on., a a z4�?zj the Tanne Buhl stand so close and High that in the Briff these Nous tightly plaited Pant doors red stockings and pointed Jujj p hats surrounded with a Broad brim give them a strange Fol Nnnie. A a it their occupation and firmer Eye though it May be also a rougher temper than to the inhabitants of the valleys and plants. And not Only their personal appearance Buttlieri manners and dress distinguish them from those who dwell beyond the Forest. The inhabitants of the Balden Side of the Black Forest have a Peculiar costume the men allow the Beard to grow As nature designed in bestowing it their Black jackets enor account of the Money. Only one was honest and warned closely round his Arm and came with wagging head them against endangering the property of their master and is face when a Large Mountain Coli suddenly humanity after Sam Natov Tho pressure is cheating him of the i free to Price Thev would not to Down seized the head of the Snake in his Bill and raised Liu Manit alter Sam Paziy.

A a Rhine Michel guided Viera it and brought them quickly to As the Serpent was carried away by one More powerful Rotterdam. There they asked quadruple the usual Price to be continued though serious and venerable appearance is Glass making they also manufacture clocks which Are sent Over half 5ie world. On the other Side of the Forest dwell a part of the same race but their employments have Given them different manners and customs from the Glass makers. They Trade with their Forest they fell and Hue the Pines float them through the nag old into the Neckar and from the upper Neckar Down the Rhine far into Holland. Every one on the sea knows tie Black foresters and their Long rafts they Stop at every town that lies on the Stream and await proudly Pur chasers for to Weir Timber their strongest and longest beams however they sell for solid Gold to the Mynheer for shipbuilding. These men Are accustomed to a rough wandering life. It is their Delight to go Down the Stream upon to Weir Timber Ali or sorrow to wander up again upon the their gala dress differs much from the Glass makers of the other Side of the Forest. They Wear jackets of dark Linen. Fail him for he heard no voice no step but his own no axe even tie Birds seemed to shun these night like Pines. Peter Munk had now reached the highest Point of the Tanne Buhl and stood before a Pine of immense circumference for which a dutch ship builder would have Given Many a Hundred guilders on the spot. Quot Here Quot thought he Quot the treasure keeper dwells Quot and he took Oft his great sunday hat made before the tree a deep reverence cleared his Throat and said with trembling voice Quot a very Good evening to you or. but no answer followed All around was still As be Quot perhaps i should repeat the Little verse Quot thought he again and murmured Quot treasure keeper of Tanne Buhl hundreds of years thou St Here held Rule Tho Frh thine All lands where fir Trees stand Quot and especially for the immense beams did Michel receive heavy Gold. The Black foresters were beside themselves with Joy when they beheld so much Money. Michel divided Boson transcript.

Their families. At the same time our Well dressed hero mov Kohlen Peter Munk had never had such heavy dreams ased gracefully away and what to do 7 has the question on this night. Now Bethought the dark giant Lio Lander was it to pursue an honest calling to pay his honest Michel opened the window and held out to him with his debts not he frown the new York observer. Sacred mountains mount of olives. Do the Rev. T. Ii Auley. The mount of olives stands just without Jerusalem Over the Little Stream of Kedron. Its height and magnitude would not entitle it to tie name of the Mountain As we use the word but being called such in the Bible it belongs among the sacred in moral grandeur it towers above All the preceding mountains that Rise along the Hori xon of history. It is difficult to recall any scene Vivi Illy that has been so often described and so Long familiar to us As that which transpired on the mount of olives. The mind is prepared for every event in it and hence cannot be taken by or held in suspense. But there arc moments when the heart forgets All that it has Ever heard and seems for the first time to witness that night of suffering. The indifference which Long familiarity has Giro diced disappears before rising emotion and that lonely Hill top that Midnight prayer that piercing agony with its bloody testimonial and the rude Shock of roman soldiers All All swim before the swimming Eye. With tie freshness of first sight till the heart thrills and throbs at the wondrous spectacle. Hut As morally grand and moving As that scene was it caused but Little talk in Jerusalem. The streets of the proud City were filled with careless promenade so parties of pleasure were assembled dissipation and revelry were on every Side and the quiet of the staid citizen s Home was not interrupted by the tragedy mount Olivet was to every tiling moved on in its accustomed Way when in an obscure Street in the upper chamber of an inferior dwelling a group of coarse Clad men sat Down to a table spread with the Prunest fare. The rattling of carriages and the hum of the mighty City were unheeded by them and you could see by their countenances that some calamity was impending Over to Weir Heads. Few words were spoken and those few were uttered in a subdued and saddened tone that always bespeak grief at the heart. At the head of the table sat one whose Noble countenance proclaimed him chief there. He had won the love of those simile hearted men and now they sat grouped around him expecting some sad news but of they were unprepared for the startling declaration that fell from those lips Quot to tis Niht one of you shall betray Quot a it i ? Quot Quot a it 1 ? Quot ran from lip to lip in breathless consternation. At length All eyes centred on Judas and he Rose and went away. I will not speak of the conversation that followed but amid words that thrilled every heart were heard such language As Quot this is my blood shed for Many Quot and As the bread crumbled beneath his lingers Quot Yvvis is my body a strange language and Awakening strange sensations in the bewildered listeners and a Mournful sadness rested on every face As through the silent chamber rung those tones of tenderness. Gradually the great City sunk to rest the noise of wheels grew less and less and Only now and then a solitary Carriage went rumbling by. It was Midnight and from that solitary chamber arose the voice of singing. The victim at the altar a the sufferer by the wheel struck up a hymn at the moment of sacrifice. Was there Ever before a hymn Sung under such circumstances through the darkened streets those twelve forms Are slowly passing towards the Walls of the City cared for and noticed Only by the police whom the betrayer has put upon the track. Kedron is passed and they reach the Garden of Gethsemane. Quot sit you Here Quot says Jesus Quot while i go and Pray yonder Quot and taking with him Only Peter and James and John he ascended the slope of Olivet. As they paused on the solitary Summit the human heart threw off the restraint it had put on its feelings and burst Forth in tones of indescribable Mournful Ness "3ii/ soul is exceeding sorrowful even unto death stay Here and watch Ecith every prop seemed falling beside him and in the deepening gloom and dread that surrounded him he reached out for sympathy and Aid. Then As if recollecting himself and the task before him he broke away even from those three remaining friends and they saw with speechless grief and amazement his form disappear in the darkness. Jerusalem is sunk in slumber and Security and nought but the tread of the watchmen is heard along the the disciples in the Garden of Gethsemane Are quietly sleeping below and All is still and solemn As night Ever is when left alone and the Large Luminous stars Are shining Down in their wonted Beauty. Ked Roii goes murmuring by As if singing in its dreams and the Olive Trees Rustle to the passing Breeze As if their leaves were but half stirred from their slumbers. It is night most quiet night with All its accompaniments of Beauty Ami of loveliness. But hark from the Summit of mount Olivet rises a Low plaintive moan and there stretched on the dewy grass his face to the Earth is seen the dim outlines of a human form. All is still around save that moan which rises in a deep perpetual Monotone like the last cry of helpless suffering. But listen again a prayer is ascending to the heavens and what a Rayer and in what tones it is uttered. Such accents never before rung on the ear of god or Man a father if in be possible let this cup pass from it is still again and nature herself seems to gasp for breath and to there arises another voice in tones of resignation sweeter than Angels use father not my icily but thine be of what inexpressible tenderness is poured in that word a a father Quot a the very passion and soul of love is breathed Forth in it. Wearied and worn that tottering form slowly rises and moves through the gloom towards where the three friends Are sleeping go the pressure is too Uman Plorin Gly for help. Quot Wadi could you not watch with me one hour Quot Falls on their slumber us ears and the lonely sufferer turns again to his Solitude and his woe. Prone on the Earth he again casts himself and the wave comes Back with a heavier and a Darker bursting sighs and groans that rend the human heart again startle the Midnight air and Adown those Pale Cheeks the blood is trickling and the dewy grass turns red As if a wounded Man were sweltering there. The life Stream is flowing from the crushed heart As it trembles and wrestles in the grasp of its mighty agony. Woe and darkness and horror inconceivable indescribable gather in fearful companionship around that prostrate form but still the prayer goes up and still the voice of resignation hovers amid the tumult like the Breatix of god Over a world in chaos ruling the wild scene. Of is this the form that a few Days ago stood on this same height and looked off on Jerusalem sleeping below while the sunlight around and the fragrant breezes loaded with the scent of the pomegranate and Vine visited in kindness his brow and the Garden smiled up in his face from beneath a Quot a branches of Palm highest Quot Shook Over him. No his soul Are voices to shake his constancy or Darken his Faith. At length the Ai orifice was pail the faithful baptism endured and the brow prepared for the Chaplet of the agony was Over but the son of god weak and exhausted Lay helpless on the Earth when to a Bright Wing flashed through the gloom and Quot an Angel appeared strengthening of no Wing Ever before passed the portals of heaven with such lightning like rapidity nor even when the birth song arose from the Manger of Bethlehem As those which sped away for the mount of olives and never before did Thev so joyously enclose with their Bright holdings a human or divine form As when they wrapped the bloody exhausted body of the son of Iod. The first act in the fearful tragedy had now passed and the second was soon to commence. There was however to be an interval of insults scorn and mockery. Christ arose from the Earth he had moistened with his blood and stood beneath the stars that still shone on As tranquilly As if All unconscious of the scene that had transpired in their Light. Kedron still murmured by and the night air stirred the leaves As gently As Ever. All was Sweet and tranquil when torches were seen dancing to and fro a Long the slopes of the Hill and the heavy tread of approach in o feet was heard and the rough voices broke the holy quiet of Quot nature and soon roman helmets flashed through the anxieties of the Sailor s life. By the Rev. Or. Abbott of Nantucket. A Man was speaking a few Days ago of the emotions with which he was overwhelmed Wheir he bade Adieu to his family on his last voyage. The ship in which he was to sail was at Edgartown on Martha s Vineyard. The packet was at the wharf which was to convey him from Nantucket to Tho ship. He went Down in the morning and saw All his private sea stores stowed away in the Sloop and then returned to his Home to take leave of his wife and children. His wife was sitting at the fireside struggling in vain to restrain from tears. She had an infant a few months old in her arms and with her foot was rocking the Cradle in which Lay another Little daughter about three years of age with her Cheeks flushed with a burning fever. No pen can describe the anguish of such a parting. It is almost like the Bitt Niess of death. The departing father imprints a kiss upon the Cheek of his child. Four years will pass away Ere he will again take that child in his arms. Leaving his wife sobbing in anguish he closes the door of his House behind him. Four years must Elaise Ere he can Cross that threshold again. One sea Captain upon this Island has passed but seven years out of forty one Iii Jon the land. A lady said to me a few evenings ago i have been married eleven years and counting All the Days my husband has been at Home since our marriage it amounts to but three Hundred and sixty Days. He is now absent having been gone fifteen months and two years More must undoubtedly elapse before his wife can see his face and when he shall return it will be merely a visit to his family for a few months when he will again bid them Adieu for another four years absence. I asked the lady the other Day How Many letters she wrote to her husband during his last voyage. Quot one Hundred Quot was the answer. Quot and How Many did you receive Quot the inevitable Rule is to write by every ship that leaves this port or new Bedford or any other port that May be heard of for the Pacific Ocean. And yet the chances Are very Small that any two ships will meet on this boundless expanse. It sometimes happens that a ship returns when those on Board have not heard one word from their families during the whole period of their absence. Imagine then the feelings of a husband and father who returns to the Harbor of Nantucket after the septera Tiomi of forty eight months during which time he has heard no tidings whatever from his Home. He sees the boat pushing off from the wharves which is to bring him the tidings of weal or to. He stands Pale and trembling pacing Tho deck with emotions which he in vain endeavours to conceal. A Friend in the boat greets him with a smile and Captain your family Are All or perhaps he for you your wife died a Young Man left the quiet Home a Young and the wife and child Are now Uptain i have heavy news and a half t summer leaving in his wife and an infant child in the grave. But the husband knows not and probable Quot it Grill not know of it for some months to come. He perhaps Falls asleep every night thinking of the loved ones left at his fire Side Little imagining that they Are both cold in death. On a Bright summer afternoon the Telegraph announces that a Cape Horn ship has appeared in the horizon and immediately the stars and stripes of our notional Banner Are unfurled from our Flag staff sending a wave of Enjo Tion through the town. Many families Are hoping that it is the ship in which their friends Are to return and All Are hoping for tidings from the absent. Soon the name of the ship is announced. And then there is an eager Contention with the boys to be the first bearer of the Joyful tidings to tie wife of the Captain. For which services a Silver Dollar is the established and invariably fee and who can describe the feelings which must to Soin of the wife a perhaps she has heard of no tidings from tie Shiprit More than a year. Trembling with excitement she Degres herself to meet her husband. Quot is he alive Quot she says to herself or am i a widow and the poor children orphans Quot she walks about the room unable to compose herself sufficiently to sit Down eagerly is she looking out of the window and Down the Street. She sees a Man with hurried step turn Tho Corner and a Little boy hold of his hand. Yes it is he. And her Little son has gone Down to the boat and found his father. Or perhaps instead of this she sees two of her neighbors returning slowly and sadly and directing their Steps to her door. I he blood flows Back Ripon her heart. They rap at the door. It is the Knell of her husband s death and she Falls senseless to the floor As they Tell her that her husband has Long since been entombed in the fathomless Briean. This is not fiction these Are not extreme cases which the imagination creates. They Are facts of continued of Currance facts which awaken emotions to which no pen can do Justice. A few weeks ago a ship returned to this Island bringing the news of another ship that was nearly filled with Oil Liat All on Board were Well and that she might be expected in a neighbouring port in such a month. The wife of the Captain resided in Nantucket and Early in the month with a heart throbbing with affection and Hope she went to Greet her husband on his return. At length the ship Appe de dropped her Anchor in the Harbor and the friends of the lady went to the ship to Mort the husband to the life Froin Izhora he had so Long been separated. Soon they a idly ret Fried with Tho tidings that her husband had been seized with the coast fever upon the land of Madagascar and when about a week out on a return Home he died and was committed to his Ocean burial. A few Days after i called upon the weeping widow and Little daughter in to Weir destined Homo of bereavement and anguish. A Short time ago there was in the state s01 nature aim Quot a.

The Young Peter Munk a shy lad objected not to this other Squirrel Only having on his feet red stockings and Perez Black shoes. In Short he was a comical Little creature but Shook before him and he heard its Clear and loud Clink exception of his dress. The Sanu. Again he saw the Friendly Little Glassman who Rode around what the tailor has since done for him.

But a charcoal Burner has much time for reflection gloom of the Pine Woods seemed even deeper than before upon himself and others and when Peter Munk sat at his the Trees stood More closely and he began to be so fright Kiln the dark Trees around and the deep Forest silence in ened that he ran More swiftly until he heard the Barking of dined his heart to tears and filled him with unconscious dogs and soon saw Between the Trees the smoke from a longing.

At length he discovered the cause saw the dress of the people he found with anxiety that he j his ear Quot rhyme it foolish Kohlen Peter rhyme it Quot said he Are Ever imposing upon humanity.

It was not the Haggard and blood streaked face Over which the torches shed to Weir sudden Glare that unnerved them so for they were used to scenes of violence and murder it was the god speaking from the Man. Quot but it must he that the scriptures May be fulfilled and the betrayer and his accomplices like up their fallen weapons and freed from Tho sudden Awe that overwhelmed them close threateningly around their unresisting victim. With their prisoner they Clatter Down the Declivity of Olivet Cross Kedron a Iid soon Quot their heavy tread resounds along the streets of Jerusalem As they hurry of to the House of the High the night wanes away the morning the last dreadful morning approaches and the scenes of mount Olivet Are to Disasi Pear before the terrible tragedy of mount Calvary. Domestic Industry.if he deserves to be considered As a Public Benefactor who Quot makes two Blades of grass grow where Only one grew before Quot much More does he deserve gratitude who brings from Quot the bowels of the Earth Quot the Mineral wealth which Lay therein concealed and sends i Forth to Benefit his fellow citizens. But it is not the policy of our government to encourage such Domestic Enterprise and Industry on the contrary it is considered More advisable to Check them at Home and Foster them abroad. There appears to be a dread lest men should accumulate fortunes by mining Coal or making Iron that is when this work is to be performed by americans though it excites no horror to compel our citizens to contribute to swell the princely estates of Noble owners of mines and furnaces in England and her colonics. English subjects seem to be the legitimate objects of the paternal care of government whilst american citizens Are treated at Best As step children Only. American Industry is depressed whilst that of England is encouraged and yet those who practice this foul injustice a who cast our workmen out of employment and deprive them of bread ask for their Quot Sweet voices Quot at an election and profess the greatest attachment for Quot the dear but he must totally neglect the first Law of nature self preservation who can lend his Aid to continue a policy which is beg Garing himself and family. He must be either Quot More or less than Man Quot who can quietly submit to be struck to the Earth and lick the hand that smites him. The people will arouse on the subject of the Tariff and will insist that the protective policy shall be restored. There can be 110 mistaking Quot the signs of the times Quot upon this subject. The free Trade fallacy will be exploded by acclamation. Let the new Tariff get fairly into operation and its effects begin to be experienced by the Industrial classes of this country and a voice will cd me up to Congress which will compel members to regard with More respect the interests of the american people. The Copper region.a correspondent of the new York Post writing from Sault St. Marie says i have had a conversation with an intelligent geologist who had just returned from an examination of the Copper mines of Lake Superior. In regard to the mines he told me that the external tokens the surface indications As he called them were More favourable than those of any Copper mines in the world. They Are still however Mere surface indications the veins Hoid not been worked to that depth which was necessary to determine their value with any certainty. The mixture of Silver with the Copper he regarded As not giving any additional value to the mines inasmuch As it is Only occasional and rare. Sometimes he told me a mass of Metal would be discovered of the size of a Man s fist or smaller composed of Copper and Silver both metals being closely United and yet both perfectly pure and unalloyed with each other. The masses cd Virgin Coppe found in Beds of gravel Are however the most remarkable feature of these mines. One of them which has been discovered this summer but which has not been raised is estimated to weigh Twenty tons. I saw in the propeller Independence by which this party from the Copper mines was brought Down to the Sault one of these masses weighing Sci Eileen Hundred and fifty pounds with the appearance of been fluid with heat. It was so pure that it might have been Cut in pieces by cold steel and stamped at once into Coin. The largest kind known.a Volunteer writing to Louisville from the Rio Grande says that tie mosquitoes Liere Quot can stand Flat footed up ii the ground and without difficulty drink water out of a pint tin sugar.a commercial computation puts the whole production of the sugar growing countries of the world., in 1844, Down at 778,000 tons of which 200,000 tons were furnished by Cuba alone. In the following year Cuba produced Only 80,000 tons but the increase from other sources was so great that the total product amounted to/b9,000 tons which was very Little Short of that in 1844. The consumption of sugar in the whole world is estimated at 800,000 tons of which the United kingdom consumes about 250,000 the rest of Europe 4 25,001the United states of America 150, 000, and Canida and the other British colonies is too. The growth of the United states does not exceed 100,000 tons for about two thirds of consumption and the deficiency is supplied by Maple sugar and foreign importation
