THE WORLD WOULD BE THE BETTER
This noble poem has been often supposed
to be of foreign authorship, but it is by M.
H. Cobb, editor of The Agitator, in Wells
boro, Tioga county, Pennsylvania. .
If men cared less for wealth and fame,
And less for battle-fields and glory,
It, writ in human hearts, a name
Seemed better than in song or story;
If men, instead of nursing pride
Would learn to hate it and abhor it,
If more relied
On love to guide,
The world would be the better for it.
If men dealt less in stocks and lands,
And more in bonds and deeds fraternal,
If Love's work had more willing hands,
To link this world with the supernal ;
If men stored up Love's oil and wino
And on bruised human hearts would
If "yours" and."mine” [pour it.
Would once combine.
The world would be the better fur it.
If more would art the play of Life,
And fewer spoil it in rehearsal ;
If Bigotry would sheath its knife,
'Til good became more univeral ;
If Custom, gray with ages grown,
Had fewer blind men to adore it,—
If Talent shone
In Truth alolie,
The world would be the better for it
If men were wise in little things--
Affecting less in all their dealings ;
If hearts had fewer rusted strings
To iusolate their kindred feelings;,,
If men,when Wrong beats down the Righ
Would strike together to restore,--
If Right made Might
In every light,
The world would be the better for it.
[Corre-j, ,a,lence of the Star and Setaine
GILPIN/C ROCKS AND FALLS.
CECIL CW77.41". 312tnyt.AND,)
August 27th, 1;4;7. )
That the importance or things increases
with their distance, I never more fully realized
than during my visit to this place, situated a
bout five miles south, of Mason. and Dixon's
line. Within fifteen miles of the place of my
nativity I have found a scene of beauty and
grandeur, before unknown to me, that equals
many made familiar to us by tourists and geo
graphical works. Yet how many of your
readers have ever heard of the place, hearing
only the name of plain farmer Gilpins, who
formerly owned it? I discribed Minneha-ha
Falls and St. Anthony Falls to the readers of
the Star last August. The former of. these
made famous by Longfellow's Hiawatha ex
ceeds Gilpin in the height of the unbroken
sheet of water, but in the grandeur of the sur
rounding scenery it bears an comparison.—
The latter; where the Mississippi plunges over
its ledge of rocks, exhibits, in its greater vol
ume, more sublimity, yet the roar of its water
is hardly greater, and in the grandenr of the
rugged, rocky scenery around it is far inferior.
Now, 'come in imagination to this spot.—
Travelling on the Philadelphia, Wilmington
and Baltimore Railroad, stop at the town of
North-east, situated on an arm of the Chesa
peake Bay Caned North Esist River, a short
distance east of the month of the Susquehanna.
Due north three miles is the village of Bay
View. Situated on an elevation from which the
Chesapeake Bay is seen spread out before you.
A few rods further on you will cross North
East Creek which ! flows through the south
weste.rn part of Chester co., Pa., and through
Cecil county, 31d., into North East River.—
Now you begin to see large rocks lying around
you, and turning from the main road to the
right, you enter a rocky wood where your car
riage ride suddenly comes to an cad. By in
numerable foot-paths you wind down around
a hill aniong piles of huge rocks, by the aid of
trees climbing down some, threading your
way through the nan - ow passages between
others, and creeping under such as have
nearly obstructed the patlmsay by tumbling
together, the roar all the time becoming more
distinct ; but the water still invisible. When
you have nearly readied the edge of the stream
you begin to catch glimpses of its tumbling
waters. between 'the rocks, and looking back
wonder how it will be possible to regain the
top of those apparently perpendicular pills of
stone. In a moment you are at the waters'
edge, and looking up the stream a grand
scene is before you. You can see for about a
quarter of mile up the narrow gorge of from
fifteen to twenty yards in width, its sides and
bottom composed of masses of rocks, between
which shrubs and trees have gained a foot
hold. Nestled down in one side of the gorge
near the top, you see a large water-wheel and
a portion of an old mill that,, manufactures
flour very extensively. A few yards farther
up is a mill-dam where nature has formed a
breast-work of rocks, that, friend Cooper the
owner of the Mill, never fears will be broken
and carried away.• Prom your position at, -the
foot of the gorge, you see the water falling over
this breast work wheel, and the water whirls,
then come tumbling down over rocks, rushing
under rocks, and between rocks in Many rapids
and falls of a few feet, washing out caves in
the sides where the waters rush in the time'of
a flood with great violence, also wearing holes
several feet in depth in the rocky bottom
where the water whirls and foams, then
plunges on down its rocky path.
At one place, you can go outton a large flat
rock to the middle of the stream, then by
throwing boards across from rock to rock,
reach the opposite side and climb into Rob
ber's Cave, where, a legend tells us, a robber
had his headquarters daring the Revolutionary
war, and was at last discovered by the smoke
that ascended from the cave. .
Gilpin's Rocks is the noted place of this sec=
tion of country for excursions and . pic-,nics.—
Theni seems tp be nothing wanting that could
add to the pleasure of such companies. There
ire large, high, flat rocks where companies
may dine together, open spaces where games
may be played, secluded nooks where lam
dredr, of couples may have private tete-a-fetes,
and cowers and rocks in abundance to oecp_py
the minds of the sei'entific.

Before g to rest one of them took his
Bible and said : "Shall I read a little ?" l •
"Certainly- said the other ; "we should haire

What a home-thrust this was! for, during
all their stay at C , he had striven tQ over

a false fear. And yet, now he found honv
gladly such a proposal would have been re

THE ANGEL GABRIEL.
My friend, Major C., had an old darkey to
whom he was much attached. One evening,
at a party, Peter, from imbibing too freely of
various mixtures, began dancing around with
the waiter containing some ices and cakes,
and soon became uproarious. Observing his
conduct,the ittiyiir publicly reprimanded
and at once dismissed him from 'the post of
waiter for the evening, and appointed anoth
er in his place. This last stroke was too much
for old Peter, and he retired to his bed-room
in despair. That night Capt. K., a jolly
young offieerl.in the room adjoining Peter's,
hearing sorbs and groans in the next 'room,
rose to inquire what was the matter. He
opened the door of Peter's room and recon:
Peter was kneeling by a window and pray
ing. Amid his loud dies the Captalri heard
the following : ,

when he was a boy, is vexed with his poor

THE present King of Sweden is tan othThort
of genius. He likes to travel incognito
through his realm, and is never happier ,than
when he mingles with his people witho4t be
ing recognized by them. Not long singe he
went to the city of Calmar, where he put up
at a second class hotel. A pickpocket stole
from him all the money he had with him, and
the unfortunate King was consequently un
able to pay his hotel bill. "My friend," he said
to the landlord, "I am an honest fellow—l
won't swindle you. Some rascal has picked
my pocket, and stolen all my money. I can't
pay,your bill now ; but let me go now, and two
days hence you shall have your money." The
landlord could not see it. • lie eyed the King
suspicously, and told him that there were so
many swindlers about the ,Conntry
could not trust him. He mast pay his bill,
and should not leave his house before doing so
The King burst into loud blughter, and ex:
claimed, l'Poor Sweden ! There will be an in
terregnum, then, until somebody.goes securi
ty for her King!" The consternation of the
landlord, when he heard who his guest was,
may be imagined.
FISHES TRAVELING BY LANB.-Dr. Hancoex
inthe Zoological Journal, gives a description
of a fish called the flat-head hassar, that travels
to other pools of water when that in which it
has resided dries up. Bose also describes an
other variety which is fotmd in South Caro
lina, and if our memory serves us well, also in
Texas, which, like flat-head, leaves,the drying
pools in search of others. These fishes, tilled
with water, 'travel by night, one N . Vitli a lizard
like motion, and the other by leaps. The
South Carolina and Texas varieties are fur•
nisii&l with a membrane oven the mouth in
which they ate enabled to carry with them a
supply of water to keep their gills moist during
their travel. These fishes, guided by some
peculiar sense, always travel in a straight line
to the nearest water. This they do without
the aid of memory, for it has been found thut

near one of the pools which they inhabit, they
will when the pooh! dries up, move directly
towards the tub. Surely this is a wonderful
and tnerciful provision for the preservatiOn of
those kinds of fishes ; for, inhabiting, as they
do, only stagnant pools, and that, too, in coun
tries subject to long and periodical droughts,
their races would, but for this pro Vision, be
Do SNAKES CHAIM BIRDS ?—.l week Or two
since two ge emen, visiting the farm of Mr.
Cita'.les Collins, about two miles north of
Northumberland, were attracted to a certain
shrub by the distressed cry of a cat-bird hover
ing near it. Appratekting, they discovered a
large black snake with his body twined around
the shrub; while his extended head was fol
lowing every motion made by the bird, which
continually drew nearer and nearer to the
snake. Neither bird nor eureka appeared to
notice the presence of the gentlemen, though
'they approached very near, while the head of
the intake glowed with unnatural brilliancy.
The exciting scene was terminated when the
bird was only some six Inches from the snak'e's
mouth, by lodging the contents of a shot gun
in the head of hie snakeship, when his intend
ed victim, relieved from his influence, imme
flkitely flew away,g,.4.
