A THOUGHT SUGGESTED BY THE
The more we live, more brief appear,
Ode life's' succeeding stages;
A day to childhood seems a year,
And years, like passing ages.
11. 3r. NOELTII.
The gladsome current of our youth,
De passion yet disorders,
Steals, lingering, like a river smooth
Along its grassy borders,
But as the enre-worn cheek grows wan
And sorrow's shafts fly thicker,
Yo stars that measure life to man!
Why sewn your courses quicker!
Wbcal joys have lost their bloom and breath,
And life itself is vapid,
Why, as we reach the falls of death,
Feel we its tide more rapid?
It may be strange; yet who would change
Time's course to slower speeding,
When, one by one, our friends have gone,
And :eft our bosoms bleeding?
Heaven gives our years of fading strength
And those of youth a seeming leuvls,
Proportioned to their sweetness.
A SKETCH", BY DR. WILLIAM ELDER.
When a man's life is heroic, and his name
has passed into history, the world wants to
know him personally, intimately. The
"grave and reverend chronicler," passing
over his beginnings, presents him abruptly
in his full-grown greatness; men render the
admiration earned, but the sympathetic
emulation awakened is concerned to know
how he grew into his maturity of excellence.
This curiosity isnot an idleness of the fancy,
but a personal interest in the facts that
springs out of those aspirations which put
every man upon the fulfilment of his own
destiny. How came this man to excel—
what was in him—what happened to develop
it? "Some man are born great; some achieve
greatness; some have greatness thrust upon
upon them." How came this man by id—
Is it within my reach also? and, by what
means? History provokes us with such que
ries as these: Biography answers, them.
Dr. Elisha Sent Kane
circumnavigate the globe; he has visited t and
traversed India, Africa, Europe, South
America, the islands of the Pacific, and
twice penetrated the Arctic region to the
highest latitude attained by civilized man.
Ile has encountered the extremest perils of
sea and land, in every climate of the globe;
he has discharged in turn the severest duties
of the soldier and the seaman; attached to
the United States Navy as n surgeon; ho is,
nevertheless, engaged at ono time in the
coast survey of the tropical ocean, and in a
month or two, we find him exploring the
frigid zone; and all the while that his per
experiences had the character of roman
tic adventure, he was pushing them in the
spirit of scientific and philanthropic enter
As a boy, his instinctive bent impelled
him to the indulgence and enjoyment of
such adventures as were best fitted to train
bins for the work before him. His collegiate
studies suffered SOl/10 postponement while
his physical qualities pressed for their ne
cessary training and discipline. It was al
, most in the spirit of truancy that he ex
plored the Blue Mountains of Virginia, as a
student of geology, under the guidance of
! Professor Rodgers, and cultivated, at once,
j his hardihood of vital energy and those ele
ments of natural science which were to
; qualify him for his after services in the field
Iphysical geography. But, in duo time he
returned to the pursuit of literature, and
achieved the usual honors, as well as though
his college studies had suffered no diversion
—his musclesend nerves were educated, and
his brain lost nothing by the indirectness of
its developement, but was rather corrobo
rated for all the uses which it has served
since. Ire graduated at the University
of Pennsylvania—first, in its collegiate, and
afterwards, in its medical department.—
His special relishes in study indicated his
natural drift: chemistry and surgery; natu
ral science in its most intimate converse with
substance, and the remedial art in its most
heroic function. He went out from his Alma
Muter a good classical scholar, a good chem
ist, minerologist, astronomer, and surgeon.
But he lacked, or thought he lacked, robust
ness of frame and soundness of health. He
solicited an appointment in the navy, and
upon his admission, demanded active service.
He was appointed upon the diplomatic staff
as surgeon to the first American Embassy
to China. This position gave him opportu_
nity to explore the Phillippine islands, which
he effected mainly on foot. He was the first
man who descended into the crater of Tael;
lowered more than a hundred feet by a bam
boo rope from the overhanging cliff, and
clambering down some seven hundred more
through the seorire, he made a topographi
cal sketch of the interior of this great vol
cano, collected a bottle of sulphurous acid
from the very mouth of the crater; and, al
though he was drawn up almost senseless,
he brought with him his portrait of this hid
eous cavern, and the specimens which it af
Before he returned from this trip, he . had
ascended the Himalayas, and triangulated
Greece, on foot; he had visited Ceylon, the
Upper Nile, and ali the mythologic region
of Egypt; traversing the route, and making
the acquaintance of the learned Lepsius,

accept, instead, a ball of ruffian Mexicans,
called the Spy Comp:illy, who had taken to
the business of troasoh and trickery for a 1
livelihood. He aceilited them, and went I
forward. Near Puchta. his troop encounter
ed a body of Mexictuis escorting a number
of distinguished officui:s to Orizaba, among
whom were Major Geirral Gaona, Governor
of Puebla; his son, MOZimilian, and General
'Anjou, who coma :laded the brilliant
charge of horse at Duena'Vista. The raw
prise was mutual, but, the Spy Company
had the advantage of-the ground. At the
first instant of the diielhery, 'and before the
rascals fully compregoded their involve
mot, the Doctor shoutd4in Spanish, "Bravo!

is its weight multipli by its velocity, he
dashed through the' opposing force, and
turning to engage after breaking their line,
he found himself fairly surrounded, and two
of the enemy giving him their special atten
tion. One of these was disposed of in all
instant by rearing his horse, who, with a
blow of his fore foot, floored his man; and
wheeling suddenly, the Doctor gave the oth
er a sword wound, which opened the exter
nal iliac artery, and put him leers de combal.
This subject of the Doctor's military surgery
was the young Maximilian. The brief me
lee terminated with a cry from the Mexicans,
"We surrender." Two of the officers made
a dash for an escape; the Doctor pursued
them, but soon gave up the chase. When lie
returned, he found his ruffians preparing to
massacre the prisoners. As ho galloped past I
the young officer whom he had wounded, he
heard him cry, "Senor, save my fi;ther." A
group of the guerrilla guards were dashing
upon the Mexicans, huddled together, with
their lances in rest. Ire threw himself be
' fore them—ono of them transfixed his horse,
another gave him a severe wound in the
groin. lle killed the first-lieutenant, wound
ed the second-lieutenant, and blew a part of
the colonel's heard off with the last charge of •
his six shooter; then grappling with him, •
and using his fists, he brought the party to
terms. The licA of the prisons' were saved
and the Doctor received their swords. As
soon as General Gaona could reach hie son,
who lay at a little distance from the scene
of the last struggle, the Doctor found him
sitting by him, receiving his last adieus. = ,
Shifting the soldier and resuming the sur
geon, he secured the artery, and put the
wounded man in condition to travel. The
ambulance got up for the occasion, contain
ed at once the wounded Maximilian, the
wounded second-lieutenant, and the man
that had prepared them for slow traveling,
himself on his litter, from the lance wound
received in defence of his prisoners! When
they reached Puebla, the Doctor's wound
proved the worst in the party. Ile was ta
ken to the government house, but the old
General, in gratitude for his generous ser
vices, had him convoyed to his own house.—
' General Childs, American commander at
Puebla, hearing of the generosity of his pris
oner, discharged him without making any
terms, and the old general became the prin
cipal nurse of his captor and benefactor, di
viding his attention between him and hilt son,
who lay wounded in an adjoining room.—
This illness of our hero was long and doubt
ful, and he was reported dead to his friends
'When he recovered and returned, be was
employed in the Coast Survey. While en
gaged in this service, the government, by its
correspondence with Lady Franklin, became
committed for an attempt at the rescue of
Sir John and his ill-starred companions in
Arctic discovery. Nothing could be better
addressed to the Doctor's governing senti
ments than this adventure. The enterprise
of Sir John ran exactly in the current of one
of his own enthusiasms—theservice of natural
science combined with heroic personal effort;
and, added to this, that sort of patriotism
which charges itself with its own full share
in the execution of national engagements of
honor; and besides this cordial assumption
of his country's debts and duties, there was
no little force in the appeal of a nobly brave
