Tiiere they stand, silent monitors, pointing up lo heaven, with their tops girt with na ture's garlands ;he fleecy clouds where living thing dwells no', and nought dis turbs the monotony, but the distant roar ol Hhe avalanche ; with their hides dotted by flock and cottage, echoing to the lowing iff the rattle and the sweet music of the -Aljiiue fcurn ; there, in lhe gorge below, ajtre t4e rooantic town and vineyards the take, spwiliog in its purity the old castles, those bulwarks of tyranny, that have frowned rom their rocky sites for centuries and there.

They bowed th knee to (j.id, and to dun only. Finally, the Swiss love their country. Ttiough the poetry and the real life of iheir land are very different, still their heart strings are entwined about her. The soldier, while he listens to the melodies of his far-distant home, is melted in tears ; the wanderer.when life's journey is nigh spent, ; hastens back to breathe his latest si'nh amid the wild scenes of his father-land ; even the exile, torn from her by the "ruth less grasp of power, exclaims, 0 Switzerland ! "my country ! 'tis to thee 1 atiike my barp io agony.' Hut, though the fate of empires no longer waits the arbitrament of Alpine shepherds, the Swiss are a free and happy people. True, the French Revolution, which con vulsed the continent of European its length and breadth, like a mighty earthquake, brought the peop'e down upon the aristoc racy, and Swiss fell side by side ; but the muttering of that awful tempest have long since died sway in the distance, and while lhe storm moans its lullaby around their lovely duelling, the Swiss may cry in rap tore to the winds, "Blow on ! blow on ! this ii the land of Liberty. DECISION. Decision is tn essential ingredient in true greatness. On it dejiends success in every sphere of action. Without it, man is a mere slave to instability : he fancies that all perplexities beset his pa'h alone ; that he is placed in circumstances peculiarly unfavorable, and in which no one else could succeed. To-day he plans a jour ney lor the morrow, but,' as he is about starting, he perceives that clouds veil the heavens; he then hesitates, unable to de cide whether lo go or remain, until a late hour relieves his mind hy deciding it for hitr. it is now too late. The oppos:!e cie.s, generally commands the esteem of his fellow men. lie forms resolution-, season-ibly, and cariies them into eflect. He yields to no ordiniry circumstances. Friends and relatives may disapprove his pr.jeci, and endeavor lo dissuade hun from im-essant toils and privations ; ihey msy even become incensed at him ; hut he consoles himself with the reflection, that he is aspiring af'er that hich is ennobling and which will finally elicit their highest esteem. With a realizing sense of the justice of his cause, misfortune d'ies not abale his zeal, knowing that this is I he common lot of man- In adversity or prosperity, in honor or unmeri'ed dishonor, in rcpu'atinn or undeserved reproach, he adopts the sentiment of another, ' If in the lottery of the world it lie my fortune to draw a prize, I am not proud of my success : il 1 draw nothing but b.uuks, I a:n tint troubled wi ll my misfortune.' Persons of decision may not be able, in every trying circumstance, to form con clusions immediately : hut those of on op posite character, influenced by selfish mo tives, can almost instantly determine upon n course, and, at least as far as the way is strewn with fl'iwer, ptirsue it but no far' her. The former having made a res olution, although his way is thick eel wiih brambles.ii.oves onward and upward ; and each step advanced, qualifies him to lake the next, until ha arrives at the desired ... ... . j It is m evidence of a waut ol decision; i form in iividu.il, having taken a wroni; I course, on ihe discovery of his mistake to retrace his steps; but il is a striking proof of his ability, in such instances, to relin quish his purpose, and to undo if possible what he hs done wrong. Hence it is, that sound reasoning aids in forming de cision. An individual may reole wrong ly, and if, apprized ol his mis'ake, he sti'l resists in the same course, he exhibits a spirit of of)$ iini-y, and not of decision. Knowledge al-o assists in forming a resolution. A man uho'wou'd carry on successfully an enterprise, must undtr.stund ' its na'ure at least, he must have sti.-h a 1 .1 i-s completion may be acquired in the pros. I crution of it.

" AH aboard !" shouted tlie conductor, and with a w histle and a jerk w-e were again on our way, and soon tiie trees and meadows, brooks and hills, seemed wh z ing by. and the dust and cinders flew thick and fast. But amid lhe roaring and jolting of the cars, steep like a minisle ing angel, came io my relief, (iraduallv ihe noi-e was hushe.l, and the speed at which I rode inspired dreams of a lolly character. 1 was in a wide rotunda, from which led two halls on either side. Many tall Corinthian columns rose about me, hewn Irom the whitest marble, and their gilded capitals were lighted from a slained glass dome. The ceilings were adorned with carved works, images, and paintings, and in short the master pieces of the Giecian sculptors, and of modern artists, seemed to adorn and decora'e the walls and niches. Cut scarcely had I begun o gaz! upon the beau'ies of the pile of splendor, when a roar like that of many oceans burst upon my ear, and I corn-In led I was in the 'em pie of the gods at Mount OI mpus, uu'il a mass of polished steel, and brass and silver, rushed into one of the long h ills, and passed out at the extremity of the other, f, I lowed by a train of what I called some thirty pagan temphs, iJI glipering with carved wood and iron, gilded eagles, pii -nacles, and spires. N't sooner than lhe train had stopped, out stepped a Yankee (I knew him by his voice.) and shouted Hartford 1" at tlie windows of each ol the cars. A throng of gents, ladies and children poured from the opening doors and Mood wiihin the rotunda. Being very anxious to view lhe interior of the cars or lemph s, and lo the motive power, I entered one, and had hardly recovered from the shock which the dazzling magnificetic re WEDNESDAY, SEPT. flected, when the train, which had benj set in motion again, stopped in a rotunda of the same size and splendor with the first, and the Yankee Ciptain cried "Spring field !" I singgered lo a seat in utter un conscii .iistiess, and as t endeavored lo lo cale myselfon what apicared to be a pic ture of New York city, I sank to my waist in a delicious air sofa, which again restored my senses. The towns and ci'ies, lakes and moun'ains, once more shot in cuiifu sion by, as lhe conductor hurridly tap ped me on the shoulder and whispered " ticket.' " Where are you bound V said I " Boston. He -there in twenty minutes. Fare from Spi in e field, one dime from New York ihree dimes. 1 handed him a shillini;. "lis hind the time," said he ; ' no such coin in circulaiion.' - I had the iood luck to carry a gold dol lar as a pocket piece, which I drew out, and paid my fare. "Where am I, cap tain ! ' said I involun'aril. lie smiled, ami lushed from lhe car, which had entered the third rotunda, and shouted Worcester '." "Mister, where am IP said I to the nearest man. He eyed ma with evident surprise a mo ment, though bis eyes sparkled as he ask ed, 'Keen asleep !"' 'Yes, sir. Got to New Haven yet T or i this " Tell me the year I" said he. Its 1349 of course! are you crazy V I replied. He tapped me on the shoulder, and said, "You've slept a hundred years it's!919! Several have slept over.

Hurrah! hur " "Stop! here's Boston. Keep close to me, and we'll get a seal in lhe first elevat ed omnibus, for the Ocean Hotel best house in the ci y. Come, we do thing so quick we seldom carry baggage.' I made fast to his coat tail, and my Yankee guide rushed thr uh crowds, and temples, and galleri s, till we found our selves at last in the flying, elevated, elec tric something omnibus, which was an open car some twenty feet long, on a rail road, elevated alwut thirty feet above the street. A double track was laid all the way, and we met several cars or omnibus es, rushing down, propelled by little elec tric engines. Below the street was thronged with trucks, goods, merchants, and car riers. On cither side, broad side walk. were filled wiih people, and above, the houses rose from eight to ten storeys, nil constructed from iron, gilded and painted in the most costly and beautiful manner. At last, when we had come about ten miles in five minutes, as fast up hill as down, we arrived at what f should have supposed to be Solomon Vtemple, restored ; but no, it was the O.ean Hotel. Of our en'ry into this place, the furniture, the car ving, the gilding, the painting, we will not speak. A'ter visiting a fashionable tailor's shop, I sat down with my guide, iu my room, to take a rest preparatory to seeing the tlqthanl no! the leviathan, and to rrmke the lour of the Stale.

England's a republic, and a Yankee is their President. There was but one kingdom in the world six fys ago, but the transatlantic telegraph was then out of order. We have n't heard for most a week from t'o'her side, and here ! see that flying car up there, see it ! It's going to San Francisco, the Isrel city in America, or United Slates, all ihe same. There, it's out or sihl ; but lh Great Aerial Electric Navigation Company are building a car that will beat that it's manufacturing in that machine shop yon der." said he as he pointed to a building fourteen storeys and a half hg. " There's generally," coniinoed he, universal peace on earth, and the lust dis patches from the moon said that the revolu tion had been brought to a close, anJ that bloodshed had ceased to slain thai para lise, and while we sptak of it, there's a fellow from the moon, who came down on a fly ing car yesterday, but their air is so diffe rent from ours he can't stay long :'' and he poiuted to a most perfect li'tle man, about three feet high. "But we'll go up to lhe moon by tho next car and stroll about a day or two, and look - (here 1 haf recourse to ihe camphor b tt'e) and look about town. Yes, wo will hem, there's some angles there some gals, and they think everyhing of us Yankees. Hurrah 1 there's the California, the last steamer from Liverpool. She started day before yesterday. She made ol iron, cutis percha, and durus.

A writer in the National Intelligencer notices a communication from the Rich mood Republican, signed " W. W. Y.,' in which early marriages were advocated, and present "lhe other side of the picture, ns follows : ' Says W. W. Y.,"AII know, or should know, ihe opinion of the good and wise Franklin upon this subject, who was warm arfvocwe in it fever." Perhaps Franklin was philosophically right in his opinion, but facts go to prove that he was practically wrong. Fot instance, gen ileraen all know, or should know, that theehildrenof very yoong parent are gen eraily deficient in strength of body and lavicdy and commonly die young?. "All VOL. know or should know, that Franklin wa ihe fifteenth child of his ftther, and the eighth of his mother ; and mow still, he was the youngest child for Aoe successive generations on hit mother's side, from whom, more than his father, he inherited his eminent talents. Pitt, Fox, and Burke, wens each the youngest child of their re spective familea. Daniel Webster ia fhe youngest by a aerena! mm'tage ; to also was Lord Bacon, whose father was Airy, and his mother waa thirty-two yean of ae at his birth. Judge Storv's mother was forty-four at hia birth ; Benjamin West was the tenth child of his parents ; and Dr. Doddredge was the trtntitth child by one father and mother. Il is a proverb that Ihe youngest children are the sovar test. And why t evidently because the par ents are mature m mind and body and con sequently trail nit a higSer order of menta i y io their offspring. Dora the mtel'ignt farmer tipect a healthy and luiurianl crop when he seed with dwarfish green; eorn or unripe potatoes? And why not bring in requisition as much science and eomnon sense to propagate 'the hmnai form di vine' as potatoes and cahhegef Grnt that etrl v marriage would obviate much of lhe vice and wickedness which in now almost unavoidable,' is n I lhe feme by worse than llsr disease if it be the means slf bring mg intoeaistencea race of puny, ill-'ormed children, a majority of whom die Vf .re they arrive at maturi'v f Bo, the evil - i d es not end here. Those who in live transmit their tmishroom ewns'itutina) to iheir offspring, and thus most effectually are the " iniquities of the father visited upon the children.' Ou ihe other hand it mitfht he shown hy numerous examples that the first born of healthy parents ate the most vigorous in body and trend, and that as j areata advance in life their offsnviM heom fee- b'e in intellect and in person.

The H.ble call the goad maa'a Itl a light, (says Dr. Wushutll,) and at i nature of light ta flow out pon'a. ooaly ' all directions, and fill the world uneowaci nus'y wiih its beams. So Ihe Chnatiaa shines, no; because he will, but because ha is a luminous object. Not that the active influence of Christians made of no ac count in the figure, but only that thissym bI of tih: has its property, in the fact tbut their unconscious influence is th.;chtel influence, and has the precedency in its power over the world. And yel there are many who will be ready to think that litfht is a-ery tame and feeble instrument, be cause it is noiseless. An earthquake, for example, is to them a much more vigorous and effective agency. Hear how it comes thundering through the solid foundations ofnntuie! It rocks a whole continent. The noblest works of man, cities, monu ments, and temples, are in a moment lev eled to ihe ground, or swallowed down the opening gulfs of fire. Li: tie do they think that the light of every morning, the soft and silent light, is an agent many limes more powerful. But let the light of fhe morning cease ftntf return no more ; let he hour of morning come, and bring with it no duwn ; the outcries of a horrer-st rick- en world fill the air, and make as it were, the darkness audible. The beasts go wild and framic, at the loss of the sun. The vegetable growth turn pale and d-e. A chill creeps on, and frosty winds begin to howl across the freezing earth. Colder, yet colder is the night. The vital blood, at leng'h, of all creatures, stops congealed. Down goes the frost to the earth a centre. The heart of the sea "ta fmz-n. nay the earthquakes are themselves frozen in, an der their fiery caverns. The very globe itself, loo, and all the feUow ptarat that have lost their sun, are become mere balls of ice, swinging silent in the carknesa. Such is the light which revisits as in the silence of the morning, ft makes ao slioc k ia - - e . or scar. U wouia nrx vik inram in the eradle. And yet h perpetually new creates the world, reecning it, each morn ing, as a prey from night and ehaos. So the Christian ia a light, eve) the light of the world and we mast not think that because he shines insensibly or ailentty, aa a mere object, he is therefore pewerless. The greatest powers aie ever those which lie back of the lift- stir and eommotion. of nature; aud I verily believe, that the inaensible influences of good; men are as much more potent than what I have called their voluntary and active, aa the great si lent powers of nature are of greater con sequence than her little rfisturlen-es and tumults.
