Saturday december 2 a 18-18.farewell. Stolen from an album. Farewell that word brings Many a sigh from friendships shrine the heart and tills with trembling tears the eyes of loved ones doomed to part. We feel with anguish starting from its Pearly fount n tear As to breathe this word when parting from those by us held dear. Farewell 1 what bitter pangs arise when that sad word is spoken by it How Many Quot lies Are severed How Many hearts Are broken but round Tho heart Thero is a spell As Calm As Summers even which seems to say there a no Farewell or parting scene in heaven. 18 l. J. miss Kate Lexington Kentucky. Of there Are Many to be loved few to to loved 09 thou few to lie thought of when away As thou Art thought of now. When first we Inot to each unknown. Our hearts held Sweet commune. Though not a word or sigh escaped those lips of Rosy Bloom. The silent blushing glance exchanged a More eloquent than words lends deeper rapture to thu heart than heaven on Earth of lords. Long since we parted against our will we dried the tears of love. And every Hope Hinl Fortune gave was blasted from above. In be wandered in other climes in be stray a do my sorrow to efface if Fate the faithful thus unlink their Friendship but to part Ohl Why Why is their memory so sacred to the heart ? Why does the love of childhood in sweeter Beauty seem restored awhile in happiness in every pleasing dream when time with thee shall he no More thy Blissful life shall Cense May st Oliou a precious Pearl to cast on tic Bright shores of Pence. J. M. M. Adjusting the London Gazette contains Somo important information for the ladies with regard to the manner of placing their lips when they desire to look amiable dignified amp a. It says that when a indy would compose her Mouth to a Bland and Serene character Sho should just before entering the room say Besom and keep Tho expression into which the Mouth subsides until the desired effect upon the company is evident. If on the other hand she wishes to assume a distinguished und somewhat Noble bearing not suggestive of sweetness she should say Brush the result of which is infallible. If she would make her Mouth Small and pretty so must say flip but if the Mouth be already too Small und needs enlarging Sho must say cabbage. Ladies when having their daguerreotypes taken May observe Tiesu rules with some advantage. At a debating society in this City n Resolution was offered that one speech should to taken Down and sent to the locomotive for publication. The speaker Troso with All the dignity of a new made Counci limn and after several preparatory a in hems Quot delivered himself to the following of feel for to Jolt motive. Me. Preside it i arise Afore you and this society to express Mong the rest my opinions of Tho credit 1 has Columbus and 1 want you to comprehend i does not wish i Tell you id ont. To take away from the credit of Gine Rul Washington. If Columbus had not discovered America would any of his men Ever have done it or any living Man in those limes i suy if liar were Ever a Man to discover such a world As the United states and Mexico or. President i say wait a moment a before he discovered America As my worthy eol leg says after sailing for some Purv length of Lime his men and troops come to great confusion and they rip and swore most voraciously they would go Home. Now you see i have destroyed the gentlemen and his arguing. Columbus was the by Hoy for to discover America. 1 Tell you the King of Spain have beat up men Ono go in a Day to have done it. I permit sir that Many men had sailed you May say thar were Captain Cook yes but perhaps he would have been too late to got his supper and ill succeed when 1 get the cobwebs out of my Throat. If Columbus had not discovered America by his surprising politician skill would Washington Evor have fought for it that is u Proton cd it by his Force As Well As i can think i remember of Reading of it when i was a boy Columbus went from King to King to get a ship and some men logo a sailing in. But i say Washington Luid Twenty seven i Neuls to defend this country with und the United my Friend says Columbus and nothing to be a feared of and he would yes As leave swim across the Ocean on a clap Hoard As lace a Cannon. I Tell him the Compass does vary and it sometimes knocks the men and vessels to destruction and that too sir in Salt water. But there Washington. He and rifles and Inus Kots and firearms. He was not feared of water you might As Well Tell me hed Ruuk the ashes in that stove. General Washington did no to gain he Battle. Were you Ever at Tho Battle of Buena Vista where we killed the mexicans so totally fast that thar ghosts darkened the air Genorn Wool did t gain that Battle no sir the soldiers gained it. Columbus had n few men and sailors and ships and the Ocean Bent against it and almost knocked it to pieces. But we Are hero on hard land not Salt water and we can stay Here if to done to Lake a running Start and leave it and i say Columbus is the Man that deserves the Praise lie is the cause of of r Freedom and our intelligence the tyrants Gravo Digger and Burien Dono Inore Good than in Fayette and outstripped Washington and consequently was the cause of All our Good except bringing Tho cursed niggers among us. I Feci mighty eloquent to night or. President but my ideas arc run out and As the locomotive is on hands i must Leno off by saying Columbus was the h Hoy for to discover America. For tir Imo Metier. Gents a one sees much of the different phases of human life by a miscellaneous life is so Antithetic ally mixed up that to Are not surprised but pained at the striking contrast we see exhibited every Day. Tis but a thin parti tit Ion that divides Tho Good from the evil. In see much to Admire and love too much to condemn and abhor. Here we find a spot glowing in Tho soft Sunshine there a place dreary and desolate. There Flowers Are Blooming scattering their fragrance on the air Here weeds whose noxious exhalations sicken and disgust. On one Page we find records of All that a Beautiful and Lovely on another much that a detestable and repulsive. Darkness and Light Clouds and bit Shine hurry each other like Tho shifting scenes of a Piny. I indulged in such thoughts the other evening while at the dance. The Young the Gay the Beautiful wore there engaged right merrily in chasing a the glowing hours with flying who could look on that Scono of gaiety and plea-8,ire�? of female loveliness and Manly Pride of buoyant hearts on which a Shadow never rested a of Lovely faces beaming with Happy smiles of innocent pleasure and Gladsome mirth a nor Feci the heart can never All grow but in coming years a Green spot will exist in
