Lying westward far away—:

O'er the:Orrice of the thyraylurf? •

That shone on those autumn. afternoons
When the days wvie calm and bright ;
When the golden beauty of summer's glow
Was fading from earth and sky, • •
And the year grew old with a sad, sad mac,
Law a saint prepared to die?
Have you forgotten Ole shaded pored
Before our cottage door,
And the balmy days of early youth—
Those days that return no more?
Then the rustling leaves of the lemist trees
Were hushed by the moonbeams' spell,
As WV lingered to whisper Home su - eet, sweet

That I have remembered well.
Have you forgotten? I still believe
You think of that pleasant past;
And your heart turns back to those quiet scenes
Scar changed since you saw' them last.

can sleep as comfortable as in a bed.
Our route lay through lowa to com
mence with, and we passed through •
some splendid towns all along our
route. Next? came Missouri. In that
we passed through St. Joseph (about
25,000 inhabitants) and Kan4as City
(about 42,006). Next came Kansas.

day, making us 97 days on the trip
(900 miles). Jefferson is a little town
of 7,000 inhabitants, and ;the worst
rebel hole you ever heard of. Green
backs are of no account here at all ;
gold and silveer is the only current
money in Texas. It is not recon

Well, we went to camp in the pine

the line of the preposed Memphis d.

the company's store (a tent - 20130,
filled with groceries, boots. shoes, and
in fact everything railroaders need)
until last 'Wednesday, whdn I- came
to Jefferson, found the boats were
running opposition and only charged
$B,OO fare to New Orleans, 800 miles
from there, and so made up my mind
to come with Mr. Farrell to visit the
city. (Mr. Farrell is the head con

Jefferson is on a bayou. From
thence we run 'on to Cado Lake, across
that to Soda Lake, and ;then strike

mouth and strike the Mississippi, and
run direct to New Orleans.
I may stay here some time ; I don't

should, and is using his..inllueuce to
procure me a situation here, , and he
may succeed ; if not, I shall go back.
New Orleans_ is a fine city, muchnicer
buildings than in Chicago, and agreat
deal more business here now than
there, as this is the cotton and sugar

It is not every book which finds its
way to our tables that '"pays - fvr
reading; Inlt "Sur GuLl_ AND Tla-
VSIPUS" is a work , of intense- interest,
both as to the facts and experiences
it recites, and in its racy style of nar
ration. In Ids wonderful career Bar
num has hardly done a better thing
for the - world,than ill givii ° , it, in this
book, the salient points_ of a public
life of fOrtY active years, such as but have ever experienced, or
rather, such us no !hail bat the "Great
Showman" ever did experience Front
beginning to end the book abounds
in matters of in,at,* - nction and amnse - -
ment to the reader. Good humor,
and pointed, vigilant stories, ,
edly told and illustrating human na
ture in its various moods, are renniriz
ble features of the work.
We cannot think of teperson in the!
community who, -would not road (if
indeed he can read at all,) this work
of Barnum's with delighted interest.
It is fitted to the cheerful fireside
: gathering of the family, the Eeeludeil
chambers of the, old batchelor, or of
.the - deranre old maid; for , the poor,
man and thefieh; the 'serious contem
plator-of humanity; or the jolly ob
'server of his race ;. for tho - se lack
ing courage to face a "frowning
world'," and for him who rejoices in
well-earned victories; in .short, for
loan, woman or child, whatever walk
in, life either maybe pursuing., Bar
num has in his book lifted the veil
from many a matter of curiosity and
wonder to the public in his noted ca
reer, and pointed every page of the
work with something in some way
useful and practiCal for its readers to
know' We shilll be greatly mistaken
if -'43-ructtot.E4 SND Ttatistrni!' does not
prove the book of the season, and we
picture. to .ourseirves the tens of thous
ands over the land who will suou be
laughing over its humorous pages,

this crowning enterprise of his life..

The trip, like most of & passages
which I have made across the Atlan
tic, was an exceedingly pleasant one.
These freqtrent`voyages were to Inc
'the rests,. therelitgs-from almost un
remitting industry, anxiety and- care,
and I always managed to lave More
- or less fun on-board ship erory time
Crossed- the ocean. During - the
present -trip, for amusement and to
pass away - the time, the passengers
,got up , a number of -mock trials
which afforded a vast deal of fun. A
judge Was'aelecteol, - jurymen drawn,
:prisoners arraigned, counsel employ
ed, and all the forrualitid of a court
established. I have the vanity to
think that - if nay good fortune had di
.reeted me to that - profession l should
have made: avery fair lawyer, for I
have always had a great fondnesti,for
depute and especially. for : the cross
exinuination of witnesses; unless that
witheaa was P. T. Barnum in exam
ination "under supplementary pro
ceedings at the instance of some no
shaver, who had bought a clock note
-at a discount of thirty-six per cent.
In this Mock court, I was unanimous-
ly chosen as prosecuting attorney,
and ns the court was established ex-
preisly to convict, I had no difficulty

punishment of the prisoner. A small
line was generally imposed, and the

him with, being the Prince of hum

to the array of counsel, I remarked,
with 4 smile, "You had better have

" Don't be alarmed, sir, we hme

The next `witness testified that he
was a planter from Georgia, that some
years since the prisoner visited his
plantation with a show, and that.
