Among those who have left friends and home
to seek their fortunes in California, there may
ptrhaps be some whom disease will consign to
the grave. Should such unfortunately be the
ci-e. it might readily be inferred into what cur
rent the thoughts of a dying man would turn
when far away from those he loved best. With
some slight alterations, I have made the sub

r MIRY ME BACK.
Juniata's woods were clothed in gren,
When from ray home I turned,
With hope to win a golden store,
My youthful passion burned.
I'm dying now in a foreign land,
Life's cherished dream is o'er;
Oh. carry me back to Mifflin's vales,
To Juniata's shore.
I'm dying, dying all alone,
And not a friend is near ;
No brother's voice, no sister's sigh,
Fails on my dying ear.
Oh, for a heart (hat loves me now,
Ere life's wild dream is o'er ;
To carry me back to Mifflin's vales,
To Juniata's shore.
I: may not be—'neath distant sky
Oh, let me gently sleep,
Where Sacramento's golden waves
To ocean's bosom sweep ;
And there in slumbers soft I'll lie,
And dream for ever more,
That you earned me back to Mifflin's rales.
To Juniata's shore.

'Tis wondrous strange, and yet 'tis true,
That some folks take delight
The deeds of other men to \ lew,
As if their own were right.
And if a piece of news comes out,
They'll eagerly pursue it;
And hand the charming dish about,
And add a little to it.
Each fault they'd try to magnify,
Vet seeming to bemoan,
The motes within a brother's eye,
Are blinded to their own.
And if a brother chance to stray,
Or fortune on him frown,
Though humbled in the dust he lay,
The text is " keep him down."
They'll preach up penance with a sigh,
To cure, or nothing can—

But not when sent by man.

T n E HASHISH.
, SINGI l.\k t'l TECTS or AN ORIENTAL DRUG.
Aw riter in Chambers Journal recalls
the public attention to tho singular effects
of this drug, the produce of tho Indian
hemp, which particularly in 1* raoce, sinco
IS4<>, has been n matter of interest in Ms
connexion with medicine. French au
thors of distinction have published me
moirs on the subject ; M. Virey attempt
ing to prove it tbc Nepenthe of Homer :
S\ Ivestro de Sacy finding it in the charms
I practised by the Assassins. But the au
thor Theodore Gautier, has given the most
! wonderful account ol its effects —from his
| own sensations.
" The Orientals" says he, " have in con
sequence of the interdiction ol wine, sought
that species of excitement which the west
ern nations derive from alcoholic drinks. —
The love of the ideal is so dear to man
that he attempts as far as he can, to relax
the ties which bind the body to the soul;
and as the means of being in an ecstatic
state are not in the power of all, one per
son drinks for gaiety, another smokes lor
forgetfulness, a third devours momentary
madness ; one under the form of wine, the
other under that of tobacco and hashish."
He then proceeds to say, that a few min
utes after swallowing some ot the prepara
tion, a sudden overwhelming sensation
took possesion of him. It appeared to him
lhat his body was dissolved, that he had
become transparent. lie clearly saw in
his cheat the hashish which lie had swal
lowed, under the form of an emerald, from
which a thousand little sparks issued—

around ivory balls, which turned with an
inconceivable rapidity. Around him were
sparkling precious stones of all colors,
changes e'ernally produced, like the play
of the kalirdoscopn. lie every now and
then saw his friends who were round him
disfigured--half men, haif plants, some
with the wing of the ostrich, which they
were constantly shaking. So strange
were these, that he burst into fits of laugh

ness of the -affair, he began throwing the
cushions in the air, catching ami turning

gler. One gentleman spoke to him in
Italian, which the hashish transposed into
Spanish. After a few minutes he recover
ed his habitual calmness, without any had
efiect, without headache, arid only a-.tcn
ished at what had passed. Half an hour
had scarcely elapsed before he had fell again
under the influence ol the drug. On this
occasion the vision was more complicated
and more extraordinary. In the air there
were millions of butterflies confusedly lum
inous, shaking their wings like fans. Gi

parities upon beds of gold and silver, rose
and surrounded him with the crackling
sound that accompanies the explosion in
the air ol fire-works. His hearing
acquired new power ; it was enormously
developed. Ho heard the noise of colors.
Green, red, blue and yellow sounds reach
ed In in in waves. A glass thrown down,
the cracking of a sofa, a word pronounced
low, vibrated and rolled within htm like
peals <>l thunder. His own voice sounded
so loud that he feared to speak, lest he
should knock down the walls, or explode
like a rocket. .More than five hundred
clocks struck the hour with fleeting, sil
very voices; and every object touched
gave a note like the harmonica or yfColian
harp. He swam in an ocean of sound,
where floated, like isles of purest light,
songs of'- Lucia di Lamrnermoor" and the
•'Hartier of Seville." Never did similar
bliss overwhelm him with its waves ; he
was lost in a wilderness of sweets ; he was
not himself: he was relieved from con
sciousness, that feeling which always per
vades the mind ; and for the first time he
comprehended what might be the state of
existence ol elementary beings, of angels,
of souls separated froui the body : all his
system seemed to be infected with the
fantastic coloring in which he was plunged.
Sound, perfume, light reached him only by
minute rays, in the midst of which he
heard magic currents whistling along.—
According to his calculation this state last
ed abiut three hundred years; for the
sensations were so numerous and hurried,
one upon the other, that a real appreciation
of tune was impossible. The paroxysm
over, he was aware that it had lasted only
a quarter of an hour.

Some nights since a huge specimen, some
15 feet lung, got under the floor of a hut,
where a number of negroes were sleeping
and after tossing up the door, gave battle.
Two dogs flew at him and were crushed
instantly, and blows fiom an axe were
showered upon him with no effect. The j
conflict looked serious against the negroes, j
when one of them fortunately thrust a
lighted brand down tho monster's tbroaf,
which killed him.

WHERE THEY LEARN IT.
'I don't see where my children learn
such things,' is ole of the most common
phrases in the mother's vocabulary. A lit
tle incident, which we happened to be an
et c witness to, may perhaps help to solve
the enigma. We smiled a little at the
time, have thought a good deal since, and
we trust not without profit.
'Bub,' screamed a little bright eyed girl,
somewhat under six years of age, to a
younger ; who was seated on the curbstone
making lusty pudding of the mud in the
gutter —'Bub, you good for nothing, dirty

We wish to correct one mistake that
prevails among many of our housekeepers,
which is, that the hotter the fire the hotter
the water that is boiling over it. Now. :
the boiling point of water is two hundred
and twelve degrees, and hotter than thai
it cannot be made, in an open vessel, or in '
one covered with a loose lid, however
great the fire under it may be. As soon
as water reaches the temperature of two 1
hundred and twelve in the ordinary state
of the atmosphere, it commences boiling,
and any increase of heat under it only
increases the evaporation, without in any
manner changing the temperature of the
water. After reaching the boiling point,
water is changed into vapor or steam,
which absorbs the heat as fast as it comes
in contact with the water, and immediately
carries it oft'into the atmosphere, combined !
with water, in the form of vapor.
