There's room enough in the nursery now,
'Twos crowded a little before;
For when the crib in the corner sat,
The rockers came close to the door;
But the light was sweet and the air was soft,
And the room was tilled with cheer;
For we all were charmed to the chosen spot
By the voice of the b.:by deur.
Where is the sunshine?
Where is the noise?
Where are the playthings gone?
What shall 1 do with my empty arms ?
Siitin4r n alone, alone!
What Ido with the vacant crib?
Where shall I set this chair?
Must the little one's clothes come down?
0, let me leave them there ! •
Fold the littlo garments,
Lay them softly by ;
Put away the playthings,
Check the choking sigh
Turn thee to thy duties,
Take up life again,
Newly consecrated
By this precious pain.
Ilroasl-thy face full heavenwald ;
Giro thy life to God,
Ills sweet peace shall keep thee,
If thou "kiss the rod."
Letter from New York.
NEW Yonie, July 25th, 1860.
DEAR GLOBE:—I've been thinking
of you and of my long absence from
your columns, doubtless toile intense
relief of those who search said columns
for amusement or instruction ; but in
the words of the funny man in Mot
ley, "here lam again," With a bow
and a scrape I ask admittrinee ; "thank
you—take my bat."
New York--the city of our land—
fair, frail, honest, sharp, cosmopolitan,
the American kaleidoscope ever
changing, ever new—willing to greet
you kindly, to forget, bury and damn
you—just the platie to become an ant,
to burrow, to horde, to starve, to grope,
to do just like ten thousand other ants
who live and move, battle, crush, and
hurry over'you. IVhat an atom a man
is here ?—"Found drowned, an un
known man ;" -Died from the effects
of the sun, a stranger ;" "Murdered by
roughs, it person mamma ;" ''Died
from want and exposure, no clue to
his identity ;" the morgue, twelve men,
rita LS()
out a life—noted carelessly—and we
turn to "gold" or Brio, and devour
greedily. One man—we know so ma
ny—"poor devil, it was his luck" (pub
lic verdict.)
I like this place, it is so truly Demo
cratic. They don't ask if his father
was a gentleman, or his ma moved in
good society, or if he is of "our set,"
hut"is he honest, intelligent, reliable,"
if so his place is for him. They give
him a start, steady him, and then leave
him to fight out his life. You meet
men every day here who can count
their wealth by hundreds of thousands,
and their talisman can be yours—
pluck, energy. Twenty-four hours a
day. How I was once appalled by the
fact—so much time, so little to do—
and now 1 know bow little it repro-
Sent S—present, past, and so little to
show for it—little done, much undone.
I hear you say, "Confound the fel
low, we don't want to hoar this stuffy
moralizing; we can get much better
for less time spent from the first soul
saving tract in the bands of the pious
distributor who curries conviction and
utter annihilation for the pleasure it
affords him!' "'Nufh sod." I'm off.
Choose—news, scandal, rumor, what
wilt you have? Shall I don the cap
and hells, and by uncouth jest and
gesture make evident my claims as
Momus' devotee or will you lot me
answer by presenting my handiest
card, gossip, (may it be trump.)
The weather, Wo hero in New
York have been blessed as yet with a
lovely summer; at odd times hot as
Tophet, but a delightful breeze from
our waters every evening brings solace
and refreshment; between the puffs of
my pipe am I sensible of its gentle
presence, and think were I at Long
Branch "on the beach" what more
could be mine, and so am content.
Now, what would your good people
think of an o'pera selection raising in
your midst on year quiet, staid Sunday
evening? As I write, one of Otfen
bach's gems charms my ear from the
lips of some lovely creature whose form
is partly hidden by her curtained win
dow. 'Tis nothing. Mrs. Grundy,
dear, lenient old woman, smiles appro
vingly and calls it "sacred music." In
fact here one "gangs his ain gait," and
so long as his gait trouble me not, nei
ther I him. On the Bowery, quaint,
queer old thoroughfare, whose tame is
wide spread, or in Chatham street, the
"home of the Jews," can you to-day
purchase an outfit "cheap for cash."—
Jewelry, trimming, furnishing, hat,
hoot, all sorts of stores, keep Open
doors, and the big spirit of tolerance
interferes not. On every line plies the
street ear, loaded down with human
freight leaving fora breathing spell on
the Hudson or the Harlem. Jersey
with her beer gardens attract. many—
the Central Park never tails its vota
ries. New York does her pleasures as
her business, with a rush, nor do the
churches suffer; attentive and appre
ciative congregations fill them, doubt
less with as much devotion and good
results as in our more riarrim minded,
staid neighbor, Philadelphia. The
belles and - beauxs of the Avenue do
their piety in the most approved-garb
at Newport, Saratoga, Long Branch
or among the summits of the Catskill
or White Mountains; giving wo stay•
at-homes more room and quiet for our
devotions (we dote on our privilege.)
Theatres, despite the absence of
many of their-patrons, find their 'seats
well filled. Lydia Thompson with her
blondes still hold their undisputed
sway over us, where we feast our eyes
on pretty, dashing women, causing
many a bachelor the sin of covetness.
Our press launches its thunders at
their looseness, but it availeth nothing
but an' advertisement. 'Eve's legacy
to man—curiosity—holds strongly to
us, and from wondering how bad it can
be we cud by seeing for ourselves, and
wo arc more amused than, shocked,
and see no reason why we shbuld be
numbered among. their denunciators.
For myself, I see nothing hat pretty,
dashing, witty women, only' too attrac
tive. Booth's beautiful theatre finds
ample work fbr its pasteboard dispen
cers. Night after night do well filled
houses attest the popularity of "Enoch
Arden"—a perfect gem - beautifully set.
The poem grows upon us as we see its
characters moving !loath our eyes, and
so well that it comes to us more plain
tively than ever. Few hearts but feel
the pang in unison with the poor, bro-
ken man whose weary "waiting for a
sail" brings bins naught but a living,
terrible death; woman, whose ever
sympathetic heart giv'es to he who
seeks it, pity, pays tribute in her tears.
Lucille Western at our Academy of
Music, or rather Fisk's (who, useful
man, eaters for our every want—items,
cheap conveyance through our streets,
convenient ferryage, instant death, or
I a gentle roast upon the Erie—takes
you to Newport and gives you the in
imitable "llodsworths" to make your
passage one of delightful harmony—
anything you want, gentlemen,) has

the b'ues or aid dige Lion by facial

train long enough, but I could stop for
many more equally presentable people.
Doubtless you tbink I've given enough
of this class, so we will oti again. Lily

Not knowing how this effort will be
received, and not caring to further de•

to bid you a very good evening
Should you again desire my presence,
a line, or a gentle smile, or insinuation
on the face of the Globe, you will ever

11E-Charlen Lamb tells his sad ex
perience, as warning to young men, in
the following language : "The waters
have gone over me. But out of the
black depths, could I be heard, I would
ery out to all. those who have set a foot
in the perilous flood. Could the youths
to whom the flavor of the first wine is
as delicious as the opening scenes of
life or the entering upon some newly
discovered paradise, look into my des
olation, and be made to understand
how drcar it is, when he shall feel
himself going down a precipice, with
open eyes and a passive wi'l to his de
struction, and have no human power
to stop it, and yet feel it all the way
emanating from himself, to see all god
liness emptied out of him, and yet not
able to forget a time was oth
erwise; to bear the piteous spectacle
of his own ruin ; could be see my fe
vered eye, fevered with last night's
drinking, and feverishly looking for
to night's repeating of the folly; could
he but feel the ,body of death out of
which I cry hourly with feebler outcry
to be delivered, it were enough to
make him dash the sparkling beverage
to the earth, in all the pride of its man
thing temptation."
A TRYING ExpEntmENT —Five young
men in Berlin lately made an agree
ment for a wager, to see who of them
could keep awake for a whole week.—
They all held out for about five days
and a half, by drinking largely of
strong coffee, and keeping up a con
stant round of active exorcise and ex
citing amusements. At the end of
that time two of them yielded to
drowsiness; a third soon fell asleep
while riding, tumbled from his &addle
and broke his arm; a fourth was at
tacked by severe sickness, and com
pelled to retire from the list; the fifth
held out to the end, but lost twenty
five pounds of flesh in winning the
wager. Long ago, Frederick the
Great and Voltaire made a similar ex
periment, making use of the same
stiniulatit of strong coffee, but they
did not succeed in driving away sleep
for longer than four days.
Wit—Our affections fbr our children
and our grand-children garland the
heart with the buds and blossoms of a
second Spring; they aro the holy band
whose miraculous tonal can bid the
thorn of mot tality break forth into
flowers even in the Winter of our days.
TROUBLE.—Never trouble trouble
till" trouble troubles you;'for trouble
rarely troubles people who never trou
ble themselves about trouble.' •
"Died Poor."
"It was a sad funeral to me," said
the speaker; "the saddest I have at
tended for many years."
"That of Edmonson ?"
"How did he die ?"
"Poor—poor as poverty. His life
was one long struggle with the world,
and at every disadvantage. Fortune
mocked him all the while with golden
promises that were destined never to
know fulfillment."
"Yet he was patkint and enduring,"
remarked one of the company.
"Patient as a Christian--enduring
as a martyr, was answered.- "Poor
man ! lle was worthy of a bettentate.
Ile ought to have succeeded, for ho
deserved success."
"Did ho not : succeed ?" questioned
the one who had spoken on his patience
and endurance.
"No sir. Lie died poor, just as I
have stated. Nettling that ho put his
hand to ever succeeded. A strange
fatality seemed to attend every 'enter-
"I.was with, him in his last mo
ment:4," said the other, "and he thought
he died 'rich."
"No, be has left nothing behind,"
was replied. "The heirs will have•-no
concern as to the admiuistration.of his
"lie left. a good name," Said one,
"and that is something."
"And a legacy of noble deeds that
were done in the name of humanity,"
remarked another.
"And precious
,examples," said a
'"Lessons of patience in suffering; of
hope in adversity; of heavenly confi
dence' when the sunbeams fell upon
his bewildering path," was the testi
mony of another.
"And high truths, manly .courage,
heroic fortitude."
"Then he died rich," was the -em
phatic declaration. ' , Richer than the
millionaire who went to his long home
on the same day a miserable pauper
in all but gold. A sad furnoral did
you say ? No, my friend, it was a
triumphant procession ! Not the.bur
ial of a human clod, but the memo-.
flies attendant on-the translation of an
angel. Did not succeed ! Why, his
whole life was a series of success. In
every conflict he came off the victor,
and now the victor's crown is on his
brow. Any grasping, soulless, selfish
man, with a moderate share of brains,
may gainer in money:,
art of keeping it,' but not one in a
hundred can conquer bravely in the
battle of life, as Edmonson has con
quered, and stop forth from the ranks
of men a Christian hero. No, no; ho
did not die poor, but rich—rich in
neighborly love, and rich in celestial
affections. And his heirs have an in
terest in the administration of his af
fairs. A large property has been left,
and let them see to it that they dq not
lose precious things through Use esti
mates and ignorant depreciations."
"You have a new way of estimating
the wealth of man," said the one who
lfad first expressed sympathy for the
"Is it not the - right way ?" was an
swered. "There are higher things to
gain in this world than wealth that
*perishes. Riches of princely value over
reward the true merchant, who trades
for wisdom, buying it with the silver
of truth and the gold of love. He dies
rich who can take his treasure with
him to the nemb lands where he is to
abide forever, and be who has toleave
all behind on which he placed his •af
foction, dies poor indeed. thir friend
Edmonson died richer, than: a Girard
or an Astor; his monument is built of
good deeds and noble examples. It
will abide forever !
POETIC SAD:IE69.-0110 of the sad
dest and most touching speeches that
wo ever read is that of the, venerable
poet William Cullen - Bryant at the late
commencement' of Williams College.—
Being called upon to speak at the an
nual dinner, he said:
'"lt has occurred to me, since I, in
the decline of life, camp to. visit once
more this seat of learning in which our
youth are trained to succeed us on the
stage of the world, that I am in the
situation of ono who, standing on a
spot desolate with winter and dim with
twilight, should be permitted by a sort
of miracle to look upon a neighboring
region glorious with the bloom of
spring and bright with the beams of
morning. Ou the side where I stand
are herbless fields and leafless woods,
pools sheeted with ice, a frozen soil,
and the shadows of approaching night.
On the nide to which I look aro emer
ald meadows, fields of springing wheat,
orchards in bloom, transparent streams,
and a genial sunshine. With me, it is
too late for any furthbr hopefal tillage,
and if the plough were put into the
ground, its coulter would be obstruc
ted by the ice-bound sods. On the
side to which I look I see the tokens
of judicious cultivation and careful
tendance, recompensed by a free and
promising growth. I rejoice at the
kindly care thus bestowed, and my
hope and prayer is that. under such
auspices all the promise which meets
my eyes may be amply fulfilled, and
that from these luxuriant fields a har
vest may be gathered richer and more
abundant than has yet been stored in
the granaries of our land."

Night had set in deep, and in a
small log hut, situated a few miles from
Trenton, N. J., sat five men, four of
whom were seated at an old oaken ta
ble in the centre of the room, engaged
in playing cards, while they,frequently
moistened their throats with large
draughts from an earthen jug which

They were heavily bearded, coarse
looking men, and from their dross,
which somewhat resembled the British
uniform, they were evidently Tories.
The other was a stout-built, young
-man; clad in the Continental uniform.
Ho sat in one corner of the room with
his face buried in his hands.,
"Tom," said ono of the Tories, rising
from the table, and seating himself
near the young prisoner, for such 'he
evidently was : "Tom, you and I were
schoolboys together, and I love you
yet. Now why can't you • give up
your wild notions and join us? You
are our prisoner, and if yea don't we

your fortune is made, for with your
bravery and talents vou will distin

after the rebellion is crushed out, your
case shall be'rewarded by knighthood
and promotion in the army. Now
there are two alternatives, which ,do
you choose ?" •
'Neither," said the young man rais

straight,in the eye. i‘l

said the Tory; "he'll talk differently
in the morning." And he returned to
his seat at the table, leaving the youth

'prisontr drew a pipe and some tobacco

leader'if ho had any objection to his

Immediately all around the .room
wore seen streaks of fire hissing and
squirming; the'cabin was filled with
dense sulphurous smoke amidst which
was a clap of thunder. The Tories
sat in their chairs paralyzed with

from his stupor, gave one glance
around the room and sprang out of the
window, followed by his comrades.
They ran through the forest at the top
of their speed, in the direction of the
British encampment, leaving their
muskets and other arms to the mercy
of the flames, which had now begun to
devour the cabin.
The next day two youngmen, dress.

seen standing near the ruins of the old
cabin. Ono was our prisoner of the
night previous. "Let us hear all about
it, Tom," said the other.
"Well," said ho, "last evening, as I
was passing this place, two Tories ran
out of the cabin and took possession of
me. Before I could make any resist

mate. Ho talked with me and tried
to induce me to join thorn; but I told
them I couldn't do it; that at twelve
o'clock I was going -to escape, disup

laughed at me and said I was out of
my head. About eleven o'clock I ask

had no objections, so I filled my pipe
and lighted it, and commenced walk

gunpowder in my pocket, and', as 1
walked strewed it all , over the floor.

dazzling flame of fire shot across,
around and all over the room, filling it
with suffocating smoke., Before it
cleared away, I hurled a chair through
the window, sprang out and departed,
leaving them to their own reflections.
