'Oft M tho hour when evening throws
Its gathering shades o'er vale and hill,
While half the scene In .twilight glow,
And half in sun-light glories still
Tho thought of all thotYre have been,
And hoped and feared in life's long way
Remembrances of joy and pain,
Come mingling with tho Close of day.
The distant scene of youth's bright dream,
The smiling green, the rustling tree;
Tho murmur ofthe grass-fringed stream,
The "bounding of the torrent free
The friend, whose tender voice no moro
Shall sweetly thrill tho listening car,
The glow that Love's firei vision wore,
And disappointment's pangs are here.
"lut soft o'er each reviving sccno
Tho chastening hues of memory spread;
Aud smiling each dark thought between,
Hope softens every tear we shed
O thus, when Death's long night comes en,
Atri its dark shades around me lie,
May parting beams from Memory's sun
Blend softly in my evening sky!
During the late American war a soldier
who had been wounded and honorably
discharged, (but perhaps not paid) being
destitute, knocked at the door of an Irish
farmer, when the following dialogue ensu
Patrick. And who are you nowT
Soldier. My name is John Wilson.
Pat. And where are you going from,
John Wilson.
Soldier. From the American army at
Eric, Sir.
TPat. And what do you want here?
Soldier. I want shelter to night, will
"you permit me to spread my blanket on
your floor and sleep to night?
Pat. D 1 take if I do. John Wilson
that's flat.
Soldier. On the kitchen floor, Sir?
Pat. Not I, by the Hill o' Howth
that's flat. Af
Soldier. Jh your stable then?
Pat. I will hot do that eithei that's
Soldier. I am dying with hunger; give
me but a bone and a crust, I ask no more.
Pat. I will not that's flat.
Soldier Give mo some water to quench
my thirst, I beg of you.
Pat. Beg and be hanged, 111 do no such
thing that's flat.
Soldier. Sir, 1 have been fighting to sc
cure the blessings you enjoy; I have con
tributed to tho glory and welfare of the
country which has so hospitably received
.your and can you so inhospitably reject me
from your house?
Pat. Reject you? Who talked a word
about rejectingyou? May be I am not the
scurvy spalpeen you take me to be, John
Wilson. You asked me to let you lid on
my floor, my kitchen floor, or in my sta
ble; now, by the powers, do you think I'd
let a perfect stranger do that when I have
half a doien soft feather beds all empty?
No, by the Hill o'Howth, John that's
flat. In the second place you were dying
tvith hungcr and wanted a bone and a crust
to eat. Now, honey, do you think I'd
feed a hungry man with bones and crust,
when my yard is full of fat pullets and pigs?
No, by tho powers, not Ithat's flat. In
the third place, you asked me for some
simple water to quench your thirst.
Now, as my water is none of the best, I
never give it to a poor traveller without
mixing it with plenty of wine, brandy,
whiskey or something else wholesoirie or
cooling. Come into the ouse, my honey;
you shall have tho best supper and break
fast that my farm can supply, which thank
the Lord, is none of the worst; you shall
drink as much water as you please, provi--ded
you mix it with plenty of wine or spir
its, and provided you prefer it. Come in
my hearty, come in, and feel yourself at
heme. It shall never be said that Patrick
O'Flaherty treated a man scurvily who has
been fighting for the dear country which
gave him protection that's flat?
Sympathies. No fact displays in more
striking manner the wonderful mechanism
of the human frame, than tho sympathies
manifested in the involuntary affections of
persons situated near each other. The act
of groping is diffused round a company as
if by an invisible electric chain connecting
their breasts and jaws. Sighing equally
infections and one no sooner draws his
broath, for a time suspended by deep medi
tation on .some object of interest, or atten
tion to some profoundly absorbing1 tale, than
all the other listeners dr meditators are'
thrown into simultaneous exhibitions of
the eapacity of their lungs. "Yawning and
sometimes vomiting are propagated by sym
pathy, and some people of delicate fibres at
the presence of a spectacle of misery, have
felt pain in tlib same parts of their own
bodies that were diseased or mangled in
the other." So saya Darwin, the man
who prophecicd the era of steamboat and
rail roads,
The case is related in which a lady be
came gibbous on gazing intensely at a
humbasked man, and the like on which a
student caught the smallpox from turning
over the leaves of a book which treated of it,
are scarcely ideal. Who has not known
instances where a female of delicate frame
has been thown into convulsion on witness
ing the agonies of a person suffering under
some severe bodily injury? Where the
spectacle of a woman in hystbrics has pro
duced a corresponding affection in one that
merely looked on? Persons faint at wit
nessing the operation of blooding in anoth
er, as if the blood were drawing from their
own veins. The sight of one on tin point
of falling from a height, receiving a wound,
or in danger of being crushed by a vehicle,
will draw an exclamation from every breast.
Even wit and silence arceoritacious. Tears
certainly are. No one can behold the eyes
ofa person wet with tears, without finding
his own filling irresistibly with the sym
pathetic dew. We have observed this
frequently in a hall where something par
ticularly moveitig was uttered by the orator.
Some apparently insensible to the eloquence
or the speaker, on turningthir looks towards
their neighbors, would instantly become
affected with the prevailing laziness and
obscurity of vision, until by propagation it
became universal. There is no infection
less to be shunned than this. It is a spark
of childhood left in the human breast,
which evinces our adaption to a higher and
purer state of existance.
Vomiting sympathetically affects the sto
machs of the beholders, and each one by
imperceptible degrees finds his ribs to be
drawn in as if even devils were engaged in
pulling at the diaphram. Fear is obviously
infectious, and when a single individual in a
regiment of an army becomes seized with a
the inclination in the whole corps to make
the best Use of thei legs in aretrogiate direc
tion is irresistibly overcoming; arms and
ammunition aro unanimously lumped and
each one takes to his lendo achillis, as if
its well trained vigour was his only reli
Ready Wit. As this is the season when
toasts, as plenty as blackberries,' we ate
reminded of a story, very well told by a
military friend of ours. During the last
war with England, a young officer belong
ing to the Northern army was sent with a
flag of truce to the nearest British post,
and while there was invited to dine with
the officers of the Regiment. After the
wine had circulated freely, a young British
officer requested permission to propose a
toast, which the Colonel granted, and forth
with gave
"The President of the United States,
dead or alive."
The Company drank their wine in si
lence, which was broken by the Ameri
can's request to return the compliment,
when he offered
'The Prince Regent, drunk or sober!"
The British cockerel was inclined to
quarrel but received a seveic reproof from
his Colonel for having offered the first toast,
and the young American was treated with
politeness during his visit. Brunswick

I observed a notice in tho "Keystone," (under
one which I published,) signed by Mr. P. C. Gil
christ, Agent, stating that the Susquchannah Boat
Line would carry passengers In less time than the
Mail Stage which is not the fact. It will be un
derstood that the Boat leaves Harrisburg one day
before the Stage; yet we have taken Passengers
through to Wilkcsbarre in timo for the Montrose
Btages, notwithstanding the tardy manner in which
the mail is brought from Harrisburg to us at Nor
thumberland. If any other persons had the convey
ance of the mails from Harrisburg to Northumber
land than those connected with the floats, I would
engage to start at the same hour with the Boat at
Harrisburg, and deliver the mail and the parscngers
TWELVE HOURS sooner than the Boat Line
possibly can do it.
When the Company runs a stage from Northum
berland to Wilkcsbarre, the mail can arrive at Nor
thumberland from Harrisburg by 1 1 o'clock, A. M.;
but when the Boat runs above, they then keep
back tho stage at Northumberland Until 4 o'clock P.
M. and sometimes as late as 7 o'clock, P. M.
These are facts, which, if the Post Master General
is not aware of, it is time he was mado acquainted
with them.
(Cjvlny passengers wishing to take the stage at
Northumberland, to go through to Montrose, will
be tuken on in time to secure seats in the Montrose
stage, notwithstanding the delay of the Opposition
in arriving at Northumberland provided they fix
upon a regular time for starting.
