They tell mo my Alice died
Like a wave on the sandy shore,
When the wind is boshed at eventide,
Acd the light of day is o'er ;
They say that she tuns, to rest
Like the zephyr that warms the deep,
With her white hands laid on her marble breast
And her blue eyes closed in sleep.
Ah ! the sun of life went down,
Ere the hours of morn bad fled ;
And the shadows rolled with an angry lrown
O'er mT darling's sunny head !
And her "heart grew faint and cold.
As the snow on the mountain's breast.
When the frozen wings of the north wind fold
On its darkened sides to rest.
She murmured her mother's name.
While her eyes grew bright and blue ;
And their lustrous depths were the same
Which the olden momonts knew;
And she pressed her parting Kiss,
As the winged moments fled ;
Then sank to sleep in the arms of bliss,
With tie sunshine round her head.
They parted the wavy hair,
O'er the brow as w bite as enow,
And pressed the lids o'er the blue eyes fair,
That would wake no more below,
And the evening's golden light "
As it full on my darling there,
Revealed the form of an angel bright,
With the look that she used t wear.
The Great Secret of Masonry.
One of our exchanges relates au anecdote
of a broihur wiio is noted for his acts of
cliarity, and who is withal a man of good
(.rexMice and a great favorite attong the la
dies io much so as to cause some jealousy
on the part of his worthy spouse. Oue
evening a bundle came to the house for him.,
LLellc-d, "private." Of course this was
fufiicient for female curiosity, and therefore
indulced ;n an inspection. Ilorror! horror-.!
I!ankets, baby-linen, &c, greeted her
astomMied vision, and dreams of two fami
lies floated through her brain. The hus
larrl soon came in, and after tea, when the
wife had discovered in his eye the treachery

the bundle and went out, but not alone, for

supposed herself so foully wronged, was

hu paused to hold a council of war. What
tactics to follow she was in doubt, but de
termined to storm the citadel ; she knocked
and lia.ti!y brushed past the little child who
answered the f-ummons; she stood in an
instant before her astonished husband, the
i-iiihixlinjcnt of injured innocence. Her
Jixlintrs were alxmt to fiud expression, when
the scene before her caused her to pause. A
p:ile and care worn man, shivering over the
tspiring embers of a scanty fire, a poor
Oman on a sick bed, a babe not old enough
Ct christening, and two little girls snugly
stuwod away on some straw in a corner, met
her ferocious gaze. She read the story at a

Fashionable Women. At a meeting in
-Sew York recently held by a number of gen
tlenien interested in the establisement of an
institution in that city for the proper edu
ction of young women, the following letter
from the Rev. Howard Crosby was read : .
My Dear Pit. Griscom : I wish I could
j' present at the meeting his evening, which
i to consider the propriety of taking meas
ures fur a central educational institution for
vuiiien. I have long felt very deeply the
need of this movement. Our women are
tat becoming butterflies for want of a true
training. 3rXst of our female schools are
fashionable hot-houses, to encourage the
prowth of listlessncss, affectation and ex
travagance. Society is made artificial, the
laws of God despised, and all things set top-T-turvy
; wives lord it over their husbands,
and children lord it over their parents ; wis
m is driven into the corner,and folly wears
the crown. I trace nine-tenths of the flip
pancy and falsehood of niodera society to
the mockery of ah education which the,
Janyhtors of the land receive. God help
Jam and your colleagues in this good work to
d the devil yelping to his den. Yours,
ery truly, Ho WARD CROSBY.

antioiiarbns. An officer of Engineers who
M observed that the bricks with which the
1 r,',!jc supplied Fort No. 1 were extreme
i tll baked, evidently very old, partly cov
ered with mortar ascertained that they had
found amongst some ruins' at a dis
tance of about fifteen miles from the fort,
at a spot which was formerly on the banks
the tea of Aral. Some officers were
ent to examine the place, and discovered a
r!W"i , ut. tnree miles in diameter, com
pletely buried in sand and overgrown with
. ushes. None ol them could form any con
ture as to what the town may. have been,
at a description has been sent to the cen
Xrf al'iiinistration, and the iuouiry will be
"ken up by scientific men.

iat srt of a sermon do you like?"'
i."'D;- Rush to Robert Morris. "That
"yl of a sermon which drives a man into
lQ cv)rnor f)f his pew, and mates him think
bedevil is after him." .
One day a new scholar appeared in school.
She was irentle and modest looking, and did
not tor a moment lift her eyes from her book.
"Who is she?" "What is her name?"
were the Questions of the cirls ; but no one
knew. "1 suspect she is not much," said
one or the girls.
"Do you see her dress?" said I. "Why,
I believe it is nothing but a six-penny cal
ico?" "Poor thing! she must be cold." "I
can't imagine how a person can wear calico
this cold day," said another, whose fine plaid
was the admiration of the school. "I must
say I like to see a person dress according to
the season," remarked another "that is,
it people can afford it," she added, in a
manner plain enough meaning that her fa
ther could.
None of us went to take the stranger by
the hand, and welcome her as the compan
ion of our studies and our play. We stood
aloof, and stared at her with cold and un
feeling cnriosit3T. The teacher called her
Susan. When she first came to repeat her
leron, she took a seat beside the rich plaid.
The plairl drew proudly .awaj', as if the six
penny calico might dim the. beauty of its
colors. A slight color flushed Susan's cheek
but her quiet remained the same. It was
some time before she ventured on the play
ground and then it was only to stand on one
side and look on, for we were slow in asking
her to join us.
On one occasion we had a harder arithme
tic lesson ti.an usual, completely baffling our
small brains. Upon comparing notes, none
of us had mastered it. "I'll ask Susan of
her success," said one of my class. "It is
quite unlikely she has," I replied "do stay
here ; besides what if she has?"
"I will go" she answered. Away she
went, and, as it appeared, Siisan and she
were the only members of the class ready
for their lesson. Susan had been more suc
cessful than the rest of us, and kindly help
ed my friend to overcome the difficulties of
tne lesson.
Tiy and by I took to patronizing hef.
"She is really a very nice body, and ought
to join us more in our play," we said. So
we used to gather around her desk during
school-hours, and make her ."one of us" in
the plav-trround. In fact . I began to have a
sort of liking for her. There was something
in Susan which called out our respect.
One Saturday afternoon, as I was looking
out of the window, wishing for something
to do, my mother asked me to join her in a
little walk. Pressed in my new cloak, warm
furs, and hat, I was soon ready. My moth
er turned into a narrow street. "Where,"
mother," I asked, "ate you going in this
vulgar part of the town ?"
"Not vulgar, my dear," she said. "A
very respectable and industrous part of our
population live here." uNot fashionable,
certainly." I added.
"And not vulgar because not fashionable,
by any means," she added. They stopped
before aw humble looking house, and enter
ed the front door.
Then gently opening a side door, she paus
ed a moment on the threshold. "Come
in." said n voice from within.
"Fray do not rise," said my mother,
going toward an afflicted, lady-liko woman
who sat in an arm-chair. "You look better
than when I saw you before." I was intro
duced, and I fancied the iuvalid looked at
me with a sort of admiring surprise, as she
took my hand, and hoped I should prove
worthy of such, a mother. Then, while
mofher and she were talking, I sat down and
took notes with my eyes of everything in
the room. It looked beautifully neat, and
the furniture had evidently seen better days.
By and by mother asked for her daughter.
"She has gone out on some errands," was
the answer. "The dear child is a great
blessing to me," and tears filled her eyes.
"She will return soon. She has gone to
carry some work which she has contrived to
do in her leisure moments. The self-sacri
fice of the child is wonderful. A little while
ago, an early friend who had found me out
and has been kind to me as you have,"
(tears came into the speaker's eyes) "sent
her a handsome winter dress, "O mother!"
she said, "this is too costly for me, when
you want some warm flannel so badly. See
mother, she said, I shall enjoy this cali-
co a nunare.i times more tnn tne nnest
dresses in the world, while you can. have
your flannel." Excuse me for telling it,but
you know a mother s heart, lhereis her
step, sne is coming-
Tikj outer door opened. I low 1 longed to
see the comer ! "I am sure I shall admire
and love her," I said to myself. The latch
was lifted. A young girl entered, and my
schoolmate Susan stood before me ! I could
have sunk to the ground for my shame.
How wicked my pride ! how false and fool
ish my judgment ! Oh ! how mean did my
own winter dress appear before the six-pen
ny calico.
I was almost sure mother had managed all
this : for she had a way of making me see
my faults and making nie desire to cure
them, without ever saying much directly
herself. This, however, did not come about
by her design. God had taught me by his
As we walked home, my mother gave me
nn account of Mrs. G , who had been
her early friend. She had lost her proper
ty and her husband, and had fallen into
great distress. But that story is no' matter
here. I will only add that my judgment of
people was formed ever after according to a
truer standard than the dress they wore, and
that Susan and I became intimate friends.

Climate of Russian America.
An article on Meteorology, prepared by
Frofessor Henry, of the Smithsonian Insti
tute, for the United States Fa tent Office
Report of 1855. coutaius the following par
agraph illustrative or the climate of JNortii
western America :
In the North Pacific ocean, on the wes
tern side of our continent, the great circle
of water passes up along the coast of Japan,
recrosses the ocean in the region of the
Aleutian islands, mingles with the fitful cur
rent outward, through Behring's strait, and
thence down along tho northwest coist of
North America. In this long circuit, the
northeastern portion of it is much more cool
ed than the similar portion of the whirl of
the Atlantic. It therefore modifies the tem
perature of the northwestern coast, and pro
duces a remarkable uniformity along the
whole extent, from Sitka to the southern
extremity of California. It is an interest
ing fact, which we have just derived from
Captain Ilodgers, that an offshoot from the
great whirl in the Pacific, analagous to that
which impinges on the coast of Norway,en
ters along the eastern side of Behring's
strait, while a cold current passes out on the
western side, thus producing almost as mark
ed a difference in the character of the veg
etation on the two shores of the strait, as
between that of Iceland and Labrador.
Lieutenant Bent, an officer of the United
States navy, who accompanied the Japanese
expedition, reported that, through the soft
eninz influence of the Gulf stream of the
"The winters are so mild at Fuget Sound,
lat. 48 degrees, that snow larely falls there,
and the inhabitants are never enabled to fill
their ice-houses for the summer. Vessels
trading to Petropaulouski and Mampschat
ka, when becoming unwieldy from the accu
mulation of ice on their hulls and rigging,
run over to a higher latitude on the Amer
ican coast, and thaw out in the same manner-that
vessels frozen up on our own coast
retreat again into the Gulf stream until fa
vored by an easterly wind."
Direet evidence of the general correctness
of this theory is furnished by the meteoro
logical records of the ltussian Government,
kept at Sitka, in latitude 57.03 degrees,the
mean temperature for a period of ten years
being in spring 44.5 degrees ; in autumn, 47
degrees; in winter-3'3.5 degrees, and during
the year 4G. 4 degrees. This indicates colder
springs, summers, and autumns, but milder
winters than we have 'in Philadelphia.
How Dr. Livingstone was Killed.
Official information of the death of Dr.
Livingstone has been received at the British
Foicign Office, lie was slain during a sud
den and unprovoked encounter with the very
Zulus, ol whom, in the last dispatch receiv
ed f rom him (dated Ngomana, May IS,) he
said that they had laid waste the country
round about him. With an escort reduced
to twenty by desertions, death and dismiss
als, he had traversed terra incognita letvveeu
the confluence of the Leonde and llovuma
rivers at Ngomana and the eastern and
northeastern shore of Lake Nyassa, and
had crossed the lake at some point not yet
ascertained, had reached a station named
Campunda, on its western or northwestern
shore, anAwas pushing westward or north
westward into dangerous ground, when be
tween Mareuga and Maklisoora a band of
implacable savages slopped the way, a mix
ed herd of Zulus or Matite and Nyassa folk.
The Nyassa folk were armed with bow and
arrow. The Zulus with the traditional
shield, broad bladed spears, and axes. With
Livingstone there Vere nine or ten musket
eers; his Johanna men were resting with
their loads far in the rear. The Mante in
stantly came on to fiht. There was no
parley, no avoidance of the combat. They
c;une on with a rush, with war cries, rattling
their shields with their spears. As Living
stone ami his party raised their pieces tho
onset was for a'moment checked. Living
stone fired, and two Zulus were shot dead.
His boys fired, but their fire was harmless.
He was in the act of reloading, when three
Mafites leaped uron through the .smoke.
There was no resistance ; there could be
none: one axe cut from behind put him out
of life. He fell, and his terror-stricken es
cort fled. One of the fugitives escaped,
and he tells the tale Ali 'oosa, chief of
his escort of porters. One blow killed Pr.
Livingstone outright. Iiobad no other
wo ind but this terrible gash. From the de
scription it must have gone through the
neck and spine up to the throat in front.
It had nearly decapitated him. Deatl
came mercifully in its suddenness. The
Mf fite had respected him when dead, for
lie was stripped only of his outer clothing.
A grave was dug with sticks and the body

people will be compelled to carry their own
