Robert) Br. Co. issue, at the same `time
with the English publishers; Jean Ingelow's
new poem, "The Monitions, of the Unseen."
A harri-worked carate, in the'wretcliedness of
an English pariah, needs comfort; and, in a
vision in the ancient reinster, it comes to him
in these "Monitions'of the Unseen." They
are monitions which many an over-worked
Irian and woman needs, who have made the
4 mistake of thinking, that God has, - for His
kthgdom's comingmo other,agency than theirs,
or than that which they can see.
-Without attempting a digestlef this poem,
we copy the conclusion : 4
'Therzurate - answered - hinaT
' Art thou content, 0 great one from afar
If I may ask, and not offend?' He said,
' I am. Behold ! I stand not all alone, •
That I should think to do a perfect work.
I may not wish to, give ; for I have heard
Pis best for-me that I receive. For me,
God is the only Giver, aid His gift., '
Is one.' With that, the little child sighed out,
- ,0 'master !'-master! I am outof lieaven
since noonday, and I hear them calling me.
If you be ready, great one, let us go :
Bark ! hark! they '
" Then did the beggar lift
Hie face to heaven, and utter forth a cry '
As of the pangs of death ; and every tree .
Moved as if shaken bv.a sudden wind.
He cried again : and there came forth a - hand
From some invisible form, which, being laid
A. little moment on the curatp's eyes,
ItUazzled him with light that brake from it,
So that he saw no more.
What shall I do ?'
The curate murmured,. when hecame-again -
To himself and looked about him. ' This is
My thoughts areal] astray; and yet, methinks,
A weight is taken from my heart:. Lo ! Lo !
There lieth at my feet; frail, white, and dead,
The sometime beggar. He is happy now.
There was a child; bid, he is gone, and he
Is also..h l appy. 'I am glad to think •
I am not-bound to make the wrong . k 6 right
Btit onli• to discover, and to do
IVith cheerful heart the work that.( 5`
With that, he did compose, with reverend
The dead ; continuing, I will trust in Him,
That Be can hold His own ; and I will take
His will, above the work He sendeth"me;
To be•Larchiefest good.'
" Then went he forth,
"I shall die early' thinking : lam warned,
By this fair visien, that 1 have not long
To live.' Vet he lived on to godd old age,—
Ay, he lives yet, and he is working still.
"TtAnay be there are many in like case;
They give themselves, and are in misery
Because the'gift is small, and cloth not make
The world by so.puch better as they fain
Would have it. 'Tis a fault ; but, as for us,
Let us not.blame them. Maybe, 'tis a fault

Than our best virtues are. Why, W.hat are

[For the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin.]
A ISITE FOR A yiry HALL.
Alas! Philadelphia—rich enough• to - spend
on a building for the permanent lodgment of
the Municifial offices five Or, six millions of dol
lars—one-third of the slim in decorative trim
mings and ornamentation—but deeming herself
too poor to purchase a site whereon to con
struct it. Instead of determining first' where
the municipal pile should be, in • order to best
answer the convenience of citizens now and
fob• it long seas of years to come, and then
placing it there, the citizens, through the
agency of parties pertinaciously patriotic in
realizing money from public jobs mainly 'of
their own creation, have been broueht to wran
gle about the expediency of utilizin g this orthat
spot, on the ground that either of the two can
be used without the cost of purchase. Whether
either of the two is absolutely the most eligible
location, or whether neither will answer, are
questions not mentioned.
One set of belie e s urge that to ruin the
beauty and convenience of both Market and
Broad sti eet sto tear up and remove the business
centre of eight hundred thousand people, are
not worth considering when expenditure for a
proper site of the City Ball can be avoided by
such trilling sacrifices. To place a huge and
magnificent quadrangular structure o
stone upon the intersection of Broad
and Market streets will be, of course, an
obstacle in the route of vehicles of pleasure
and use, even through a street a hun
dred feet wide.- around it. Pedestrians may
find it direct passage through the pile by corri
dors or lobbies provided for the purpose. It is
admitted that the view of Broad street, as well
as of Market street., from end to end, must be
destroyed. But, in exchange, there will be two
Broad streets, one looking south and one look
ing north, and both clearly to be seen from the
roof of the bedding.; and two Market streets,
one east tuft] one west:
Another patty argues' that\ by using Wash
ington Square a suitable locality will be se
cured without expending anything' for , ;
_witfiout diSturbing the basiness centre, and
'lwithout marring the continuity of Broad or
Market streets, although some too strait
laced people think this square cannot be built
upon consistently with the conditions on which
this square was given to the city. But Inde
pendence tiquare.being left open, will answer all
the purposes of ventilation and a lounger's
walk just . as-well as the Washington ground,
diagonally opposite. Besides, if Washington
Square cannot be legally occupied in the man
nor proposed, there can be no doubt that the
cotuts of Pennsylvania are competent to adju
dicate the question, and decide it satisfactorily
to o all unprejudiced minds. Under •this view
those' who are must scrupulous to ob
serve the conditions of the gift of Washington
Square to the city may safely vote in favor of
placing the municipal structure upoh it, be
cause it is - very - certain - that Ore cOliffTl will not
sanction a perpetration of any wrong in the

continuity of those streets..
Is Philadelphia so poor in purse and spirit,
they ask, that she cannot afford to keep the
faith reposed iii her by William Penn, or to
preserve Broad and Plarket streets' continuous
lines of travel, and at the same time provide
a site for a municipal hall vicinity of
the glorious old State House
,is the proper
locality for the public buildings now , and for
ever. The suggestion has been made More
than once by far-seeing men }'that the south
aide of Walnut street, from fifth to Sixth
street, is a proper place for thisiproposed city
edifice. Let the Otck :boundegby Fifth and
Nixth strectSrTV.lntrand Loctist streets, be
taken for the purpose, paying the present
owners liberally for their property, and there
let the city's buildings be constructed. Penny
wise and pound-foolish people object at once.
Rather than incur The expense, they would
•ruin Broad street, or be recreant , to-the trust
repesed in the people by William Penn, and
vacate the right •to erect a monument to the
*Father Of his Country' on Washington Sijuare,
for which the foundation has been laid.
fSquare is the site nearest to the
proper place for the public buildings, and iris
ho - Od the vote Of the tie-ople d willlie In - favor of
that'localityvin . preference to_ the Pedn Square.
Being thus determined; the courts can decide
the - question.of:the_right of the Legislature to
Occupy that sift:rite for any purpose whatever.'
Then, if the courts determine against its occu
pation, still let us' adhere to that vicinity, and
• take' the'site just suggested, and not think' of.
Penn Square at all. Whether it be deteimined
to keep that also wit is or not is unimportant.
. That it viould -- be a great advantage to the
laity to possOss !frea museums, libat'ry and art
galleries in juxtaposition, no one who has se
.riOnsly considered the sunject doubts, provided
' they can be obtained without cost to theVpublic
'llielY too poor to expend any sum whatever to
provide for its citizens such means of free cul
ture and entertainment. But the city and many
citizens would very cheerfully permit liberal
gentlemen or corporations at their own expense
to supply the want—nay, they will even hrand
them as beggars, robbers, or stingy wretches,
for not giving to the public - all - they - have - col- -

conjectured that the Society will not.wrangle
and quarrel with and importune the com

also purchase a lot and construct an edifice to
keep it in, in exchange forsratuitous vitupera

SANITARY ARRANGEMENTS IN THE
GERMAN SNI) FRENCH ARMIES.
To the Editor of the Evening Bullekn :
was sorry to see in the EvEBl56 BULLETIN a
phrase or two founded on our conversation of
yesterday—,and especially the last one of the
'article—which are not altogether correct, and
certainly convey an impreSsion which '.s unfair
to a large body of most devoted and admirable
workers (male and female) in what has struck
me as the grandest and most fruitful move
ment and characteristic, as well as redeeming
feature of this horrible waic.; I refer, of course,,
to the brothers and sisters Of St. John
themembers of the -
the Sauiitats C071017188i012, or Inter
national Commission of Geneva,
JohannisteN Commission Sdnitaire, as they
are variously named in different tongues and
places. , Americans are doubtless actively and
,efficiently engaged on bath sides; and: espe
cially on the French, under Dr. Evans and lir.
Marion Sims and others ; but I should be sorry
, to _have it said by any one, ' hay
ing even far bettor opportunity for
observation than I have, that the Ameri
cans were not far outnumbered (although
not excelled) by the English and by the na
tives of other neighboring countries, and, of
course, vastly exceeded in numbers and q uite
equalled in devotion by the Germans and .
No one could witness even the little that I
was able to see without cordial admiration
and sympathy for these universal efforts of a
patriotism and humanity which, whether first
roused by our American example and teaching
or not, were at least born of a civilization, and
significant of a progress immeasurably higher
and greater than could haVe been hoped for,
much less experienced in any previous Euro
pean war. As a matter of course, and as
amongst our own ranks, there have been
excursionists, sensation mongers, drones and
other such dead weights and false-pretending
sponges on the good faith and will of genuine
philanthropists; but the, number of earnest and
thoroughly capable men and women of: all
ranks engaged in the work of aiding and at
tending the sick and wounded is very large,
not only in the field but in the cities bud on all
the lines of communication, and at every,
railway station. My own immediate sphere
of observation Was too limited to justify much
direct, and personal testimony; but on the
authority of others, with whom I conversed
upon the subject, near the most important
centres, the , dilliculties arose most frequently
from a want of the complete organization and
"consequent discipline which distinguished the
great American body. The clashing of autho
rity among the leaders,and crowds of idlers and
insubordinates, were seriously felt; but they
have not prevented, Lhe accomplishment of a
wonderful amount of invaluable work by l&rge
numbers of educated ,Germans, Swiss, Bel- .
gians, as well as English, and others from more
distant countries, including Russians. 1 have
no doubt that the seine may be said of the
French, and still morb of the energetic and
accomplished Americans, with' their English.
associates, on the French side—but I know less
of them, except from hearsay and the pagers.
I had no idea, however, of presuming to give
any account of the Sanitary Com Mission
operat7ions-now going on throughout Gernfany,
and in France and Belgium. My only desire.
' was to beg you to correct what appears to me,
so far as 1 know, an erroneous impression—
that these operations are, or have been con
d meted and directed to any great extent (ex
rept possibly in Sedan or some such particular
field) by Americans alone, Receiving their
inspiration from the American Commission
ing :iz. - ..301
peiteetly irr some respects, the Europeans
have nevertheless profited by our, experience
enough in a few others to have improved upon
us in" sonic of their materials and methods.
We must certainly admit (and I do so with
great pleasure) that, in view of the interna
tional character of their arrangements and
obligations, the universality of their operations,
and the large numbers, intelligence and entire
self-devotion of these brothers and sisters of
the Red Cross Banner—and considering the
terrible timount'lind nature of the statiqug to ,
be relieved—a good deal ' more has been
effected by them, under all their difficulties, in
the past six weeks, than ours had learned to
accomplish in more than' as many months.
Their work, however, is confined and concen
trated within a field of less extent than a
single one of our States, while ours was
spread over half a continent, and
might have covered the ° whole.
Notwithstanding the magnitude of their strug
gle, sometime must still elapse before it can
approach comparison With ours, except it the.
fearful concentration of its horrors. That
such a time may never come is the prayer and
wish from - the'inmoSt heart of every one who
has seen anything of either war. Bet,. if it
should, we have the Strongest consolation .and.

man in the midst of an adVersity unparalleled
in modern times, and Unknown, except. to the

WAR AND WET WEATHER.
Speaking of the effect of cannonading in pro
ducing fall of rain a German letter says :
The. Germans bring to mind some very inter
esting American experiences. In ,st; I Lewis.
called attention in Sullivan's American Journal
to the fact that violent rains and heavy cannon
ading appeared to stand in intimate connection.
Ile said (I quote the German) : "in October;
I 525, I observed a plentiful rain immediately
after the cannonading which took place in cele
brating the connecting of Lake Erie with the
Hudson. I published my observations on this
event in the year 1341, expresing the opinion
that the firing of heavy gun§„.produces rain in
the neighborhood. After t 14% first battle in the
last war between France, Sardinia and Austria,
there followed such important rains that even
small rivers were impassable, and during the
great-battle of Solferino there broke out such a
violent storm that the lighting was interrupted.
In July, 13f11', McClellan's troops on the upper
Potomac had four separate engagements on
four days, and before the close of each violent
rains fell. On the 21st of July Bull Run was
fought in Virginia, and on the 22d rain fell the
whole day till late at night." l' Wer the head
ing, " Can we produce rain when and where
we like?" the cirwinnati 11 7 iwhent::irhe
Walt for the 10th of July, 1862, remarked:
" The cannonading (during the war) on the . ,
fork - River and James Itivy.r; as well as.,tllp
cannonading \of Corinth and on the Mfasis
• sippi, were followed by such fearful storms that
the land wirs inundated."
The Bohemian campaign of 15t:t: was accbm
paided during the Whole course by violent
rains. After the battle of Kimiggrat z violent
rain stoints hindered' the harvest from .beltig
properly garnered. The letters of the soldiers
in the field in the present war are full of ac
counts of " sleeping on the wet ground," and
complaints of the inclemency of the weather.

of this can testify, as he „waited at one of the

There are two sorts of jealousy—the passion
and the habit. There is the j'efilellsy which,
by the common consent of poets and .dra
matists, changes • the
of its victim by
gnawingat his. itals ; and there is the jealousy
whcih, tiffecting neither circulation, digestion,
nor bile, indicates its presence solely by a
certain rigidity of outline r ,„l7erbaps there is,
no vice more respectablelthan this latter form.
of jealousy, which is a quality wholly indepen-
Aent of passion, and • acting in cold blood.
The jealous nature does not need a lover or a
• thistresB to exercise itself upon; it rises out Of
a certain combination of qualities--:-an exag
gerated idea of one's own claims, a craving for
their recognition by others, and -not the best.
temper in the world. As an example of the
jealousy rising • out of an insatiable need of
uniVetsal honotage, take the case of Napoleon 1.
on the 'occasion, WO think, of his being elected
Consul for life. WI eyes of a vast .assembly
were fixed on him, when he noted a
momentary turn of those multi
tudinous oyes froin himself to:
some new object of .curiosity. Tlfeentiance
of Madame Ifecamier , in the splendor of- Ter
youthful beauty had caused this diversion, and
his displeasure—a lasting displea.sure—against
a rival who for a fet. moments reduced him to .
a second rank. For the; morefamilim: jealousy
of the obscure we 'may refer the reader to the
habitual temper of all old servant,if any reader
is fortunate enough to possess the services of
one confident in herself as a real treasure Of
honesty, industry and sobrlety,and using these
virtues as grounds - o perpetual ill-temper.
Respectability in this class often involves such
a hand-to-baud light with temptation that we
Should not perhaps wonder at their valuing
themselves on the score of negative excellence
which ought not to pass for much with .their
betters: As a fact, we have Often observed
that the self-complaceney_arisitigfrom_au or
derly life, religious observance and trustworth
iness, presumably enacted under the eyes of
all admiring world, issues in au ekclusive
claim tweverything good and pleasant that is
going on. Such a person grows to regard every
.recognition of another's merit as a deliberate
personal slight to be avenged by a judicial sid
lenness of aspect. .
Between these - two exponents of the Quality
there are infinite degrees. We ought never to
consider either ourselves or any one else to be
wholly free from it, or purely dispassionate and
_clear_olperionaLlaias not to .13e...otherwise ex,
plained. Wherever there are natural rights,
howeVer they may seem -to be forgotten or
disowned,it is always wise to steer clear of any
course that may awaken a sensation whiCh is
much more likely to be slumbering than wholly
absent.'Nor does it ever d e g to suppose- (dream
stames kbar to its presence. Wherever there
is a sense of dependence on others there is
room for jealousy. •
There, are certain people so tempted to jeal
ousy by circumstances that it is a merit in them
to keep reasonably clear from it. Such are all
whose life and credit hang on popular favt2r,
all whose-business it, is to amuse the, public,
and who have their tenure insecure. A suc
cessful poet must be a horrible exasperation to
his less famous brotherhood. It is expecting
too much from fallen humanity to suppose
otherwise. So it used to be in the free-spoken
days of which our literature tells us; so we. see
it in the effect of Wordsworth's career upon
some, of his contemporaries. Poor Walter
Savage Landor,showed in his charge of plagiar
ism, and in his rage with the public of readers,
for admiring the metaphor of the sounding
shell in Wordsworth's verse which they had
overlooked in his own. And it breaks out in
De Quincey's splenetic allusions to the poet's
'Ned destiny of prosperity, and the sort of lien
he asserts him to have had on the income of
other men who happened to stand in his way:
so that "for Myself," he adds, "hadl happened
to knoNvof any peculiar adaptation in an estate or
office of mine to an existing need of Words
worth's, forthwith,and with the speed of a titan
running for his life, I would have laid it down
at his feet. Take it,' I should have said;
take it,'or in three weeks I should have been a
dead man." It is one of Walter Scott's promi
nent points of greatness that he welcomed the
new lights that were to obscure his, own, and
seemed incapable of jealousy ; tho Ugh a sense
of his own boundless resources may very well
bavo aided in this, the consciousness of au un
tried field of power all his own making humil
ity easy. tßicial life presents a thousand cases
where it is great not to be jealous. .Thus the
man of varied powers, who would fain make
some figure with them,sees himself superceded,
by another with a knack of entertaining—a
sort of chance felieity—who • interests wituout
effort, who says things with nothing in them,

All, in fact, who have to play second fiddle
. - Where they feel they could play first may learn
that society is a school for greatness of mind.
Jealousy naturally rules where the field of
competition is narrow : the examples that most
readily rise to our memory have had a private
and narrowing training. A person under ex
citing circumstances has been pitted against
one ortwo—for open competition does not ex
cite it. It is wrong, therefore, and unjust to
expose the young to temptations of this kind ;
to bring a plain girl into close comparison with
,a beauty, or Mean circumstances in -harsh con
trast with wealth. All:that interferes with full
development and hiiiajps natural energies in
duces to jealousy ; a -temper that derives thi3
true lesson from a subordinate place thils
forced on it is a line and a rate one. tu tat,
-every close circle possessing points of stimu
lating interest, is a hotbed of jealousy, condu
cing to strange,unnatural grOwths. This clever
mothers have daughters tried and irritated by
being thrown into the shade, and young
mothers see rivals in their daughters.
Jealousy is excusable so long as circum
stances can be made to bear half the blame,
and therefore those are most tolerant of it who
see furthest. Yet even in this partnership of
-blame it is sometimes hard to be indulgent
enough to people who, while jealous of the ex
clusive affection of'' those belonging to them,
will do nothing too secure it, and . make no
sacrifice of will or temper to MUM their end,
While they. betray ill-will to others in propor
tion as these mitke up their deliciences,•and
thus gain a regard or influence winch they
.think exclusively their own by a sort of .di
vine inalienable right. •

fact that both Cassagnac and Jerome David
were regular pensioners on the civil list. The
cost of the baptism of the Prince Imperial was
;•31es,000f. (nearly $180,000). The consins,

francs were paid to General DeFailly for simi

name continually appears, received 2,000,000
francs as a marriage portion. The son of the
American Bonaparte had a pension of 30,000
francs; Madame Hatazzi of tf4,000 francs, and
her sister, Madame Tun.. the same, and the

not contented with their pensions, were always
getting extra allowances. Prince Achille Mu

Prussia refuses to acknowledge'•4he legality
of the present provisional government, and
until it or another be proclaimed- legal by the'
Constitutional Assembly to be called shortly;
the Emperor will be considered as the ruler of
France. by virtue of the plibiscite of 1600. It
will be soon enough to treat Napoleon as a
private man after he has been declared de
throned by the French people.
What the settlement is can now be pretty
accurately defined, namely, the cession of the
whole of .11sace and Lothringia as far as the
Moselle, refunding of war expenses, compensa

and private property, and the cession of half
her fleet. Herr Dicer' Richter calculates iu

The ability of Paris to resist a siege is thus
estimated by- -a- Paris _correspondant-of4he_
, I,bildon Daily Neic% writing Sept. 15 :
" You, in England, appear to consider it a
foregone conclusion that Paris will he unable
-tb resist an attack. This is by no means the
opinion here among competent authorities. 1
know that Gen. Trochu is, now very hopeful
of being able to hold out for two months, and
he is the very reverse of sanguine disPOsi
tion. Had the German forces been able to in-.
vest this city within ten days of the capitula
tion of Sedan, they would' have entered it
almost without firing a shot. Now, however,
time has been given to--the , new Govern
ment to obtain men, arms, and ammuni
tion • they have,, too, •considerably strength
ened the fortifications. Surely an intrenched
camp, surrounded. tw solid forts, with More
than three hundred t housaml armed men
within it, with SailOrs , to handle the guns i with
no lack of provision* with a good General at
their head, and 'everything that art c.an desire
to tend the wounded, ought to be able to re
sist 300. 000 assailants. The southern earth
works of SebaStOpol protected the northern
portion of the town even from' bombardment,
and why are welte suppose that thp forts and
Alio long walls rdund Paris will not do the same
for her? The Provi, ucial Mobiles who crowd
the streets have jaciw had almost three weeks'

-soldiers-as the-peaSants ot Bavaria and Porno

out for six weekl3, the approach' of. Winter
and the uncertainty of their communications
will oblige th4-Priissians to raise the siege,and
then that they will bo ready to conclude peace
on honorable terMS.....__Surely the gain is worth

Since the fearful conflict at West Hickory
bet Ween Adam Goodman and.a wild cat which
had taken refuge beneath his bed (an account
of whieb - was published some weeks since), the
" Van:Uinta" have liqcome ,demoralized, and
DOW from Clarion county there conies a story
of an attempt to lunch off from "a bran new"
baby by one of these denizens of the forest :
On Thursday of last. week, a wild cat en
tered the house of Mr. Enka Walters, who re
sides at Wilson'ti mill ? on Toby creek, in Knox
township, about seven billet; north of Clarion,
and took a young ehiltl from the cradle, and
was about to commence devouring it, when it
was frightened away. The parents had gone
out to gather in potatoes from a lot and left the
babe wrapped up, sleeping In its cradle. A
little girl was sent in after they had been ab
sent a shprt time, to see about the child, and
when ski opened the deitlr, was horrified to see
a large wild cat with the infant behind the
stove. The little thing was crying piteously,
and in a short time would doubtless have been
killed and devoured by the savage beast.L On
the alarm being given, the wild cat escaped
through the window, but has since been Seen
in that neighborhood.
