PO E T E "Y _
Two Translations from the Hungarian Poet,
BY JOHN BoWßiXti.
O Youth! Thou art a whirlwind! Thou
In thy swift circling dance
Droppest a flowery garlaud on our brow,
Which shines in the sun's glance;
And suddenly there comes another gust,
Which, with unfriendly breath,
Carries away the wreath,
And leaves no trace upon the lorehead bust:
We feel that forehead cold and hlauk and bare, j
Inquiring: '-Was the garland ever there?"
Is Nature's kindest gift; it opens wide
Those fairy palaces where glance and gleam
Sweet fancies, never seen at waking tide.
In his blest dreams tlie boor
Drives coid and thirst and hunger from his door,
Wears purple garment- dwells amidst perfumes,
Spreads softest carpels on bis glided rooms,
And laughs at tyrant kings, and walks erect
In the proud liberty of self respect.
11l dreams the youth whom the coy maid lias chased,
Sleeps with his loving arms around her waist;
And 1, poor dreamer! in my vision see.
That my weak breath has made my country free!
Correspondence of the Gazette.
WASHINGTON, I). C., July,'GG.
MR. EDITOR: —After viewing the
capitol building tuid admiring the wis
dom of its architect, we are ready to
listen to t he deliberations of Congress,
but are informed the session fur the
day will not open for several hours,
affording us the opportunity of visit
ing the Botanical Gardens on the south
of the Capitol. These gardens contain
many acres, are well laid out, and to
the lover of the beautiful in nature, as
well as to the botanical student,afford
great pleasure. Turning to the left as
we enter, we notice a large plot of
ground devoted to the cultivation of
evergreens of every variety; next we
behold other kinds of ornamental trees,
native and foreign, all kinds of vines
and all manner of hedges arranged in
logical order. Then there are the flow
ers, various, numerous and beautiful,
arranged around the outside and along
the walks in the most tasteful manner.
In the centre of the garden area nuui
ber of greenhouses filled with exotic |
plants and flowers collected from ill- |
most every country on the globe. Here
we meet the fan-palm with its broad
leaves, the date-palm with its delicious
fruit, the baobab, bending its branches
to the ground, forming a wide spread
ing forest, together with every variety
of cyeas, cactus and ferns In another
apartment all around the sides of the
walls, arranged on shelves, are flowers
of every hue and variety, enchanting
like a fairy's hower. We pause as we
enter, not knowing but that we are
treading upon enchanted ground or en
tering the palace of some fairy queen.
We visited several others of a similar
character, passing by the gardener -
cottage which sits among the flowers
like a hummingbird among the honey
suckles. A few minutes walk brings
us to the Senate chamber. We as
cend to the gailories, place ourselves
in a finely cushioned seat feeling like
a Republican in the Capitol of the Re
public. which means quite at home. A
glance around us satisfies us there are
similar seats lor one thousand more,
with reserved seats for the diplomatic
corps. The chamber is lighted entire
ly by windows above. We casta look
beneath, and what a scene 1 The ses
sion has just opened, and one half of
the members are reading the morning
papers, while the other half, except
two or three, are writing letters, frank
ing pamphlets and speeches, sending
them home. Whenever one is sealed
the Senator claps his hands, when a
boy comes and carries it to a side
chamber. This clapping of hands is
so constant that, should a member rise
and speak, he would seem to be ap
plauded all the time. While all this
is going on bills are passing with the
greatest dispatch. The process is
something like this : The bill is read
by the clerk, the chairman addresses
the Senate, and calls for the yeas. Xo
one responds. lie then calls for the
nays ; still no response, and the biil is
pronounced passed, apparently by the
chairman alone, as no one else seemed
to notice it at all. This procedure,
however, is only adopted when the bill
is an unimportant one.
The most important man in this
chamber is oi course Mr; Foster, who
presides with becoming dignity, and
does his business with dispatch. He
is a fine intellectual man, and would
grace any position.
First among the Senators we notice
Mr. Doolittle, of \Y iscousin, a man
who has done too much to aid the cop
perheads and support " my policy." —
Little ho dreams how his constituents
hate him. Beside him is .Mr. Cowan,
ofPenna., whose name should be Cow
ard for the treacherous part he is now
taking. Before him sits Mr. Fessen-
den, one of the finest speakers and
smartest men in the Senate; near him
is Chus. Sumner, as calm and serene
as though no earthquake were shock
ing our Republic. His name will be
associated with liberty and justice as
long as our institutions live Air. Mor
rcll, of Maine, is in his seat as usual,
getting up some new bill; he is the
working man of the Senate, and rich
ly earns his eight dollars. Beside him
is Reverdy Johnson, whose appearance
is not near so reverent as his name. —
He is the strong man of the Demo
cratic party, and the able defender of
Airs. Surratt and of treason and mur
der generally. Mr. Saulsbury, of Del
aware, one of the ablest speakers ol
the party, now takes care of the South
ern interests, and gallants Airs. Jeff
Davis to church. From what we cuuld
observe, we give it as our decided
opinion tl at the tendency among the
several factions at Washington, is to
glide into two great parties. The
democrats and Southern traitors have
already in one solid phalanx attached
themselves to " my policy," and ex
pect by their numbers to obtain all the
public offices, while the conservative
Republicans, who, in the hope of keep
ing their two factions linked together,
sympathized with the President, but
seeing the impossibility of a reconcili
ation. many have boldly avowed their
intention to stand by their Congress
and their country. More anon.
THE MEMPHIS RIOTS.
Report of the Investigating Committee.
WASHINGTON, Jul}' 25. —The report
of the committee appointed to investi
gate all matters connected with the
Memphis riots and massacres, was
made to the House this evening. It
is signed by Representatives Wash
burne, of Illinois, and Broom all, of Pa
The other Representative, Mr. Shank
i iin. of Kentucky, dissents.
They say the outbreak of the dis
turbance resulted from a collision be
tween some policemen and discharged
colored soldiers, and was seized upon
as a pretext for an organized and
bloody massacre of the colored people
of Memphis, regardless of age, sex or
condition, inspired by the teachings of
the press and led on by sworn officers
of the law composing the city govern
ment, and others.
The whole evidence discloses the
killing of men, women and children,
the innocent, unarmed and defence
less, pleading for their lives and crying
for mercy ; the wounding, beating and
maltreating of a still greater number;
burning, pillaging and robbing; the
consuming of dead bodies in the flames;
the burning of dwellings ; the attempt
to burn up whole families in their
houses, and the brutal and revolting
ravishing of defenseless and terror
The report gives a circumstantial
account of the commencement ot the
difficulties, the renewal of the distur
bances, shooting negruus. brutal mur
ders, what the riot was, the coward
ice ot the mob, burning ot the Lincoln
Chapel, and other features of the mob,
and recapitulates the number of color
ed persons killed at forty-six, and of
whites two. Wounded, 75; rapes on
colored women, 5; maltreated. 10 ; rob
beries, 100; houses and cabins burned,
91; churches, 4; school houses, 12
Value of property destroyed, 5109,0-sl.
The committee say, in their several
conclusions, that from the testimony
taken from personal observation, and
from what they could learn in regard
to the state ot feeling in Memphis, and
indeed throughout that entire section
of the country, they are of opinion
that there is but little loyalty to the
Government and flag. The state of
things in the city of Memphis is very
much now as it was before the break
ing out of the Rebellion.
Many of the same newspapers pub
lished there then are published now,
and by many of the same men, men
who, during the war, were in the rebel
armies, fighting for the overthrow of
the Government. Professing to ae
eept the situation, they seem inspired
with as deadly hatred against the Gov.
eminent as ever, and are guilty of the
same incitation to violence, persecu
tion and oppression toward the men
holding opinions obnoxious to them
that were held towards the men who
were well disposed toward the Union
They believe in the principle and
doctrine of secession the same as ever;
though they have been beaten by
arms they assort and maintain that
the principle is the same, and hope for
its vindication hereafter in somo way.
In view of the fact, the state of public
sentiment is such in Memphis that it
is conceded that no punishment what
ever can be meted out to the perpetra
tors of those outrages by the civil au
thorities, and in view of the further
fact that the city repudiates any liabil-
ity for the property both of the Gov
ernment, and individual, destroyed by
the mob, the committee believe it to be
the duty of the Government to arrest,
try and punish the offenders by mili
tary authority, and also by the same
authority lay a tax upon the citizens
ol Memphi -efficient to cover the loss
es of all p: i, . destroyed.
Captain Scott's Dog.
The celebrated Mirtin Scott was a
friend of Gen. Marcy, who in his new
hook. "Thirty Years of Army Lite,'
gives many interesting anecdotes about
Captain Scott was at onetime, while
stationed at Prairie du Ohien. in pos
session of a wonderfully sagacious dog
—a cross of the setter and pointer
The captain would for example,
while sitting in his quarters at the fort,
with his dog at his feet, say, " Mark, I
want you to go over to the island and
ascertain if there are any woodcock
there, and come back and tell me '
The dog would instantly go to the riv
er, swim to the island, and if he had
found birds, run up to his master, then
to the gun, wag his tail, and make
other demonstrations of joy, which
made it perfectly apparent that lie
had been successful. Scott would then
tell the dog to get the canoe in readi
ness, and strange as it may appear, he
would take the cushion in his mouth,
carry it to the river bank where the
boal was moored, piaee it upon the
seat, return lor the puddle, carry that
to the canoe, then go back to Scott,
and look up in his lace with an ex
pression which indicated that all was
The captain had at the same time
another dog, which lie called Turk. —
These dogs, from their first acquaint
ance, had never been on friendly terms,
and they had many severely contested
encounters, which finally resulted in
Turk's gaining and retaining the mas
tery. Mark was emphatically a van
quished dog, and by bis meek and sub
missive demeanor in the presence of
bis adversary admitted as much.
Upon one occasion Turk had gained
possession of a bonne bouebe, in the
form of a beef's bone, which he was
quietly enjoying by himself upon the
parade ground, when Mark chanced
to pass that way and scented iho
choice morsel. The longing, anxious
look which he cast upon the bone told
how desirous he was to participate in
the feast, but his experience had taught
him that an attempt to contend with
his powerful adversary would only re
sult in his own discomfiture. lie
therefore prudently resolved to resort
to strategy in order to accomplish his
ends. Accordingly he ran furiously
outside the stockade inclosure and set
up a tremendous barking as if some
thing extraordinary had occurred, upon
which, as usual, all the dogs in the fort
hurried out of the gates to see v\ hat
was the matter, and among them was
Turk, who in the excitement of the
moment, abandoned his bone. As soon
us this was done Mark very quietlj
slipped back, seized the prize, and car
ried it to a hiding place, where he
could enjoy it at his leisure.
Mark was by no means a dog of reg
ular habits, and would often steal away
from home and pass the night among
bis canine companions. For this be
was invariably punished, bis master
compelling him t<> stand on bis hind
feet, with his fore paws resting against
the wall, while castigation was admin
istered by a cowhide. In one instance,
after having absented himself all night,
lie returned home with a dejected and
penitent air, and, seeing his master
looking very angry at him, he imme
diately went to the wall, placed him
self in the position he had been requir
ed to assume when he received hispre
j vio. s punishments, and at the same
| time turned his head around and louk
j ed at Scott, as much as to say, u I am
! In the course of time-Mark waxed
' in years, and was no longer able to
: endure the work required in hunting,
| and Captain Scott took him home to
Bennington to pass the remainder of
his days in quiet retirement, and here
lie continued to make himself useful
even in his dotage by going to the pas
ture every night and driving home the
cows. It certainly appeared as if this
animal was endowed with something
beyond mere brute instinct, as he seem
ed to comprehend ali the relations ex
isting between cause and effect.
Captain Scott was so very fond of
: his dogs that I have known him. upon
the death of a favorite one, to walk
his room in great apparent distress of
i mind during the entire night, and af
terward place the body in a coffin, and,
' with his boy Jack leading his hunting
horse draped in black, follow it to the
I grave, and bury it with as much care
and ceremony as if it had been a child.

ourselves by trying to injure others.

Horrible Death—A Sleeping In/ant
Killed b>/ Hot a —The Pittsburgh Ga
zette of yesterday says:
We have just received the particu
lars of a horrible occurrence which
transpired a few days ago on Huberts
street, iw the Seventh ward, it ap
pears that a young married lady placed
her sleeping infant —a little cherub
three months old—in a cradle and lett.
the room. Five or ten minutes after
wards she heard a piercing shriek from,
the little innocent, and immediately
rushed to its side. She arrived in time
to see a large rat jump from the cradle
and escape through the open door.—
Upon raising the infant she found it
cold in death, the rat having bitten
through the lip and cheek, producing
spasms, in one of which the baby had
died. The eoprse was laid out in the
parlor, and being left unguarded a few
I minutes, a swarm of rats entered and
I attacked it; devouring nearly the en
! tire face and arms before their pres
j ence was discovered The house in
, question is literally swarming with
| large, ravenous Norway rats, which
frequently attack grown persons, and
are a source of terror to the occu-
Sleep in;l in the Moonshine. —A little
boy, 13 years of age, named Henry
Lowry, residing near Peckhamrye,
England, was one night, lute, expelled
from his home by his mother lor some
trifling misdemeanor. He at once ran
away to a cornfield close by. and on
lying down in the open air fell asleep;
lie slept throughout the night, which
was a moonlight one. Some laborers
on their way to work, seeing the boy
apparently asleep, aroused him; the
lad opened his eyes, bukdeclaring he
could not see. He was conveyed home
and from thence to a'n ocular institu
tion, where medical advice was ob
tained. The surgeon affirmed that
the loss of sight resulted from sleeping
in the moonlight. The boy is totally
blind, and few hopes arc entertained
of bis ultimate recovery.
Buryiny Alive. —On Monday last a
lady named Mrs. Hanncy, living at
Morrisania, on the outskirts of Now
York city, was taken ill, and soon af
ter, to all uppeara. s, died. Prepar
ations were made for the funeral on
the following afternoon, although two
doctors had expressed their belief that
she was not actually dcad. As they were
about to bury the lady her brother ar
rived, and the coffin being opened to
permit him to take a last look at his
sister, he too declared that she was not
dead, and refused to allow the inter
ment to proceed.. This state of things
continued until Thursday evening, at
' whicfo time there were no signs of re
vival nor of actual death.
Sad Case of' Drowning. —On Saturday
last Mrs. Marston, of East lladdam, Ct.,
took her daughter and the child of a
neighbor to the river for a bath She
sat on the bank watching the children,
when suddenly her attention was
attracted by their cries, and she
found that they had got beyond
their depth. With motherly in
stinct she plunged into the water to
rescue the little ones, and was herself
carried under. All three soon appear
ed at the surface, struggling for life,
but the effort was unavailing, and they
finally went down to a watery grave.
The Stolen Child. —The following is a
description of the little girl, Lillic Da
vidson, who was abducted from her
home in Cincinnati, on the 15th of
April, and who has not yet been found:
'She is between four and five years of
uge; rather stout in stature; light com
plexion; light brown hair, cut short;
full gray eyes; two moles on the side
of her face, one near the temple, tho
other near the top of her ear.' Two
thousand dollars is now offored for the
recovery of the child, and amount
has been placed in the hands of the
Mayor of Cincinnati.
A Fact Worth Printing. —At a Second
class hotel in Frankfort, Ky:, a few
days since, a little girl entered the bar
room and in piteous tones, told tho
bar-keeper that her mother had sent
her there to get eight cents.
•Eight cents?' said the bar-keeper.
' What does your mother want with
eight cents? I do not owe her any
'Well,' said the child, 'father spends
all his money here lor rum, and we
have had nothing to eat to-day.—
Mother wants to buy a loaf of bread/
A loafer suggested to the bar keeper
to kick the brat out.
'JST o,' said the bar-keeper, I'll give
her mother the money; and if ber fa
ther comes back again I'll kick him
Such a circumstance never happened
beforo, and may never happen again.
Humanity owes that bar-keeper a vote
Beware of strong drink
