Gentle Words—loting Smiles,
The sun may warm the grass to life,
The dew the drooping flower,
And eyes grow bright and watch the light
Of Autumn's opening hour—
But words that breathe of tenderness,
And smiles we know are true.
Are wanner than the summer time,
And brighter than the dew.
It i* not much the world can give,
With all its subtle art,
And gold and gems are not the things
To satisfy the heart :
But oh, if those who cluster round
The altar and the hearth,
Have gentle words and loving smiles,
llow beautiful is earth !
from Charles Strain's " English Melodies."
'Tis the breath of a moment—which no one re
That holdeth the key to each secret of life ;
'Tis a "moment" that oft our long watching
And calms the dark waters of sorrow and
Its breath may seem nothing—but yet 'tis ex
A power the sublimest our being can know ;
A moment may yield us a bliss without ending—
A moment consign us to darkness and woe !
Its circle may flash with a beauty that ages
May crown as immortal and hallow its birth ;
A moment may question the wisdom of sages,
And change the whole system of science and
A moment—the soul of the painter can feel it—
It thrills through his frame with a spirit-like
A moment—Oh ! once let thegi/t*d reveal it,
And Heaven is short of the height 'twould as

Ask the home-seeking sailor, while fast his heart
How sweet is the moment he views his old
Ask the 'over, when whisper to whisper repli
In accents that tremble lest lips be o'erheard;
And oh, they will tell you each moment that
Hath crowded eternity oft in a word !

Beautiful Region of Country near the hth

The productions of Central America
are as varied as the climate, which, ac
cording to the level selected, may appa
rently be adapted to all wants. On the
higher table lands wheat, barley, and the
rare fruits and vegetables of Europe mav
be grown abundantly, as well as Indian
corn, and in some parts rice. In the
lower plains and valleys the soil yields an
nually two crops of Indian corn, and the
sugar cane, bananas, mandiocca, pine-a[>-
p'es, cocoa nuts, sapots, and sweet potatoes
me all raised or grow naturally. Indigo,
cochineal, tobacco, vanilla, cotton, cocoa,
s■ 12 nr and coffee, are also, according to the
district, capable of the finest cultivation. —
Of the various small states into which
Central America is now divided ; Nic
aragua, in point of natural gifts, is de
scribed to be the richest. Commencing
the route from the Gulf of Nicoya, on the
Pacific, we find that at this point pearls

so is the mountain Aguacatvin which the
few geologists who have visited Central
America have asset ted immense wealth
bes buried, the localities of which are
most evident. Passing on towards the
inn of Nicaragua, the fields are 'covered
'■ 'h high grass, studded with noble trees,
to! herds of cattle.' Cocoa, indigo, rice,
Indian corn, bananas, and cotton are heie
produced, and mahogany, cedar and pine
<n<;und in the forests. Proceeding across
t'j the eastern side of the lake there are
r *ttle tirinc, on which are herds of from
;0,000 to 40JHU0 oxen, bulls and cows.

this river abounds with manatees, an ani

Atlantic in which the river San Juan dis
charges itself, is the best for large vessels
on the whole range of coast. The cli

country baa but one want, and that is that
it should become the seat of enterprise.
The Escurial is perhaps the most cele
brated palace on the continent of Europe.
It is situated among the wild, sombre scene
ry of the old Castilian mountains, about
twenty-two miles from Madrid. This
enormous palace, seven hundred and forty
feet in length, by five hundred and eighty
feet in breadth, was reared by Philip 11, in
the middle of the sixteenth century, at an
expense of about fifty millions of dollars.
Philip, austere, gloomy, fanatical, selec
ted this wild and gloomy fastness as the
site of his palace, and reared the regal
mansion in the form of n gridiron in com
memoration of the instrument of the mar
tyrdom of St. Lawrence. The embellish
ments of modern kings, and the luxuriant
foliage of trees and shrubbery, have now
invested even this uncouth order of archi
tecture with a kind of venerable beauty.—
Four towers at the angles represent the
legs ofthe gridiron. The Spanish descrip
tion of this structure forms a large quarto
volume. It is stated that there are eleven
thousand doors. This may he an exagger
ation, and yet the enormous edifice, With
its cupola, its domes, iis towers, its chap
el, library, painting gallery ami college,
mausoleum, cloisters, regal saloons, apart
ments for domestics and artizans, its parks,
gardens, walks, and fountains, constitute
almost a city by itself. A statue of St.
Lawrence is over the grand entrance, with
a gill gridiron in his hand.
Spacious reservoirs, constructed upon
the neighboring mountains, collect the wa
ter, conveyed by aqueducts, to supply
ninety-two fountains. A very beautiful
road, about a tnile in length, Iringed with
lofty elms and lindens, is the avenue to this
magnificent palace, and a subterranean cor
ridor of equal length, arched with stone,
connects the edifice with the neighboring
Underneath the building is the subtei ra
neaii chamber called the Pantheon, the
burying place of the royal family, it is a
very magnificent apartment, citcular in its,
form, thirty-six feet in diameter, its walls
encrusted with the most beautiful and
highly polished marble. Here repose the
mouldering remains of the Spanish mou
archs. Their bodies lie in marble tombs,
one above another. A long arched stair
way, lined with polished marble, beauti
fully veined, conducts to this mausoleum,
far below the surface of the earth. A mag
nificent chandelier, suspended from the
ceiling, is lighted upon extraordinary occa
sions, and sheds noonday bt illiance upon
this grand yet gloomy mansion of the dead.
Tito labor of many \ears was devoted to
the construction of the sepulchre.
For nearly three hundred years, the
domes arid lowers of this monument of
Spanish grandeur and superstition have
withstood the storms which have swept
the summer, and wrecked the winter's skv.
Many generations of kings, with their ac
cumulated throng of courtiers, have like
ocean tides, ebbed and flawed through
these halls. Hut now the Escurial is hut
a memorial of ihe past, neglected end for
gotten. Two hundred monks, like the
spirits of dead ages, creep noiselessly
through its cloisters, and the pensive mel
ody of their matins and vespers floats
mournfully through their deserted halls.
Here have been witnessed scenes of revel
ry and scenes of fanaticism-the spirit of sin
cere though misguided piety, and the spir
it of reckless and heaven defying crime,
such as few earthly abodes have ever ex
hibited. The fountains still throw up their
beautiful jets, hut the haughty cavaliers
and the highborn maidens and dames who
once thronged them have disappeared, and
the pensive friar, in sackcloth and hempen
girdle, sits in solitude upon the moss-grown
stone. The blaze of illuminations oriee
gleamed from those windows and corri
dors, and night was turned to day, as songs
and dances resounded through hall, and
bower, and grove. Now midnight conu s
with midnight silence, and solitude, and
gloom; arid nought is to he seen hut here
arid there the glimmer of some faint taper
from the cell where some penitent monk
keeps his painful vigils. The jewelry
and the flaunting robes of fashion, and the
merry peals which have ushered in the
bridal parly, have passed away, and now

or lolls the knell, as, in the shades of night,
the remains of some departed brother are
borne, with twinkling torches and funeral
chants, to their burial. And yet how
many are there, weary of the world, with
crushed hearts and dead hopes, who would
gladly find, in these dim cloisters, u re
fuge from the storms of life. Here, soon
beneath this marble canopy, the body of
the hapless Isabella will moulder to the

The Mobile Tribune has a letter de
scriptive ofSouthren Florida, from which
we make the following extracts :
The ' Keys,' or almost innumerable
islands of the coast of Florida are of soft
lime rock of the tertiary formation, it be
ing of ill© same age and the same belt
which crosses the Tombigby at or above
St. Stephens and the Alabama in (dark
and Monroe Counties, whence it stretches
through Butler and Conecuh Counties into
Florida, where it pervades nearlv the
whole State either as the sub stratum near
the surface of the earth, or, which is too
often the cuse, it forms the supeiior strat
urn when it gives the country the appear
ance of almost hopeless sterility ; a few
stunted pine trees, or a few other trees or
shrubs merely struggling for existence
among the limestone 'heads' which fre
quently rise to the height of ten feet, though
no larger than a man's body. The Baha
ma Islands are of the same rock formation,*
likewise a part of the Island of Cuba, and
nearly the whole Peninsula of Yucat tn.
Tho ' Keys,' have hut little soil on them
of any kind, but what there is contains,
much to my surprise, no sand—it being
composed of the detritus of'rotten lime
stone' alone. There aie some exceptions
to this, such as Pine Island and Cay Bis
cayne, where there is a little sand mixed
with the soil, and in such places the pine
in a dwarf mate usually appears. Many
of the ' Keys,' are thickly covered with
vegetation, such as mangrove, Ace. ; a few
such as Key \ acas and Key Largo, have
largo trees on them, and of a kind, too,
that will be usel'ul in ship-building, among
which are the wild Tamarind (a species
of locust) and the 'Dog Wood,' which
closely resembles the East India Teak.
On most of the ' Keys' or Islands there
are no inhabitants: the only exceptions, 1
believe, are the Tortugas, Key West—one
house on Saddle Key, ten or twelve miles
from Key West; a few families of Baha
mans on Key Vacas; some four familes
on Indian Key, a beautiful circular island
of less than an hundred acres, and one
family at Cape Florida (Cay Biscayne)
who keeps the light house. On the main
land are some five families in the vicinity
of the Miami river, which empties into
Biscayne Bay, some ten miles north of
Cape Florida. Key West has a popula
tion of about 3000, more than half uf
which are from the Bahama l-lands, they
being the descendants of refugees from
North Carolina, who fled to those islands
during the Revolution. This class are a
quiet, otderly race—catchers of turtle,
fishermen, wreckers and divers, but with
too much Rip Van Winkteisrn in them ev
er to do a great deal toward developing the
resources of the land.
The remainder of the population, the
greater share of which tire from Northern
Stales, are mostly engaged in the same oc
cupations, but principally nt wrecking and
business therewith connected. Tho mor
als of Key West are said to have been im
proved much within tho lat futtr or five
years. This, 1 presume, is the case, for
at present there are very few tbnvns that
have as little drunkenness and vice, or that
attend mo.e to the courtesies orciviities of
life. But .from some cause, which it would
be well to inquire into, none of the people
there seem to endeavor seriouslv to reap
any other harvest from the country except
such as Providence at intervals scatters
along the reels. There is a salt work on
•he Island which is carried on in a limited
manner. It makes the best salt for pack
ing pork in the world. But while there is
abundance ofcapital for purposes connected
with wrecking,therehasnotyetbeen enough
applied to the purpose of improving Iho
salt ponds, to scarcely test their capabilities
of making that staple article. 1 do not
think, however, that it is altogether from
the lack of capital that the salt ponds are
HO little worked—they lack the right kind
of labor. The present proprietor told me
that last Full a large pond was crystalized
ready for 'raking' immediately before the
hurricane season was at hand. The pond
had to he raked or the winds would drive
in the water and dissolve the sail. His
own negroes were other wise employed and
to save the r.slt he offered enormous wages,
but be got but lew negroes from their
The American part of the town is built
up in a \ery creditable manner and many
of tho houses have yards filled with beau
tiful shrubbery, and there are perhaps a
hundred cocoa nut trees growing in a most
thrifty manner. They have however been
planted for ornament, not profit, arid it is
strange from the ease with which they are
cultivated, the large amount of waste land
and valuo of the tree ufter it begins to
bear, that there should not now be more
thousands of trees on the Isle than there
are single trees. They bear in seven years
from planting and it is estimated that each
t;ee will produce at least three dollars'
worth of fruit yearly. Frosts are not
known on Key West or any of the Key*,
and there are lands on Key Vacasand Key
►Sago with soil sufliciently deep to cultivate
not only cocoa nuts but every description
el tropical fruits, yet there has not been
any progress made to raise fruits either
for market or home consumption.
On the main land from Cape Sable to
'he head o! Biscayno Hay, between the
Everglades and ihe sea, there is hut little
•rood land. The principal port of it has
little and in some places no soil above the
lime rocks. Where there is a soil there
are a lew pine trees scattered over the
land, and here the 'coonty' (the plant
from which the arrowroot is made) grows
1 believe, in its great profusion. There
are, however many hammocks covered
with live oaks and other trees of like kind,
on which, the soil is sufliciently deep
to grow any of the tropical fruits. These
hammocks aie scattered along the coast at
intervals of a few nnles, arid 1 was inform
ed by a gentleman that 1 met at the mouth
of the Miami, who had been exploring,
that he saw a few thousand acres of land
near Cape Sable, which he had no doubt
would make the very best of sugar lands.
1 rorn this account they resemble some of
the prairie lands near the Gulf, in Texas.
I he only business now pursued on the
Miami liiver is making the 'coonty'into
arrowroot. Hitherto this root has been
used to a limited extent on the coast for
that purpose, hut it was ground by hand
and impure well water used for washing,
but thi-> establishment uses machinery for
reducing the root to a pulp, and the pure
water at the edge of the Everglades for
separating the 'starch' from the fibrous
part of the root, and is now turning out an
article which will in every way bear a
comparison with the Bermuda arrowroot.
This business might be carried to any ex
tent desirable, as lite supply of the root is
inexhaustible, and grows spontaneously on
the very poorest lands, but being rather
thinly scattered over the patches* of soil,
it is somewhat expensive gathering the
root. The proprietor of this establishment
gave great preference to negro labor, and
said that he could not continue the business
with white help alone.'
USEFUL UF C EIP TS .
BAKED CUSTARDS.— Boil one pint of
cream with some maize and cinnamon,and
w I" ' i is cold, take four yolks of eggs, a
little rose water, sack, nutmeg und sugar,
to the taste; mix them well and bake them.
The rose water may be omitted without
injury to the custard.
ALMOND CUSTARD.—BIanch a quarter
of a pound of almonds—beat them very
fine, and then put them into one pint of
cream : sweeten it and put in the yolk of
lour eggs; stir them well together, till it
becomes thick, then pour it into cups.
YANKEE PUDDINO.—Take one pint of
scalded milk, one half pint of Indian meal,
one tra cup of molasses, a tea-spoonful of
salt, and six sweet apples cut into small
pieces. It should be baked not less than
three hours. The apples will produce an
exceedingly rich jelly.
1 OMATO CATSUP.— Take one gallon of
skinned tomatoes, four table spoonfuls of
salt, four of black pepper, one half table
spoonful of Alspice, eight pods of red pop
per, three table spoootifuls of mustard, the
spices ground fine, and simmersd slowly
in sharp vinegar three or lour hours, then
strain it through a wire seive and buttle
close. It may be used in two weeks, but
improves by age. Fit use who like the ar
ticle may add (after the simmering is over
and the mixUue cooled) two table spoons
ful of the juice of garlic. As much vine
gar must he used as to have one half gal
lon of liquor after the process is over.
DEATII OF A SISTER OK CHARITY.—
I he superior of the Catholic Orphan Asy
lum at Mobile, Sister Martina, died on the
<th of August. 1 fie Mobile Herald says ;
1 iie deceased was a native ol Fiuludclphia,
and at the early age of seventeen, in the
possession of great personal beauty, and
with the most captivating and persuasive
manners, joined the Sisters of Charity, and
to their mission of love devoted her life.
She first joined the sisters at Emmettsburg,
Maryland, and then served in the asylum
hospital at Baltimore; subsequently, she
went to St. Gums, and was one of the foun
ders of (lie celebrated hospital of that city;
arid finally, in 1841, came to Mobile, and
tc ik charge ol the orphan asylum, where
i few days since Iter noble career was end
ed. To praise her deeds is superfluous: it
is sufficient to record them. The world
knows what gentleness, and faith, and love,
und heroic endurance are attributes of the
sister of Charily.

—Sir George Simpson returned on Mon

through the Hudson's Bay Territories and
North Western settlements of this Conti

that no clue had been obtained to the
whereabouts or the fate of Sir John Frank

Ilia exploring party will, however, con
tinue their search under the orders of Dr.
Kit, of the Hudson Hay Company, Sir
John's second in command, throughout the

criminal to abandon hope in such an enter

self the unwelcome truth, that the chances
to n successful issue become fearfully di

WOMAN HOOKED.—A singular incident
(says the Lowell Courier,) is told as hav
ing occurred in this city a day or two since.
A female was flying about the shop, scold
ing a gentleman and making a most ex'ra
ordinary free use of her tongue, when she
went to the window for the purpose of clo
sing it, and preventing her being heard.—
In doing this, she caught her lip on a large
fish hook which hung down from the top
of the window, and there was almost sus
pended like a brim at the end of a line.—
It was almost impossible to remove the
hook except by cutting away the lip, and
the pain of the operation may be ima
gined. Whether this was a visitation for
making too free with her tongue, or not.
it certainly was a most singular occur
