The Seasons of Life.
The years glide by, and on their wings
Our dearest memories bear;
While constant changes 'round us Rem
Occurring ever 'where,
As on the sea of Time we roll,
'Till its tempestuous waves
O'crwhelin us, and we sink to rest
In deep, oblivious graves.
Life's morning sunbeams softly fall
On Childhood's happy days;
We while away the merry hours,
Amid our sports and plays.
Snell is the sunny side of lite,—
The Spring time of the year,—
When, in our primal innocence,
No earthly cares appear.
Spring glides away; its flowers fade;
Its pleasures soon are gone;
Anil Summer conies ; iu lab we put
/ur manly vigor on;
And Anti) to toil upon the world,
We (cave our childhood plays.
To rear the harms that Fancy built
In dreams of youtlithl days.
The transient Summer disappears,
And "Autumn's solemn form"
Aearing on Time's troubled waves,
Fretells the Wintry storm.
The golden harvest of the year
Is gathered and in store,
We leave the toil 14vounger hands,
Our fathers left before.
The old, old year soon glides away,
fly %Vintry cares oppresseil,
Ami heavy with the frosts of age,
We long to lie at rest.
The past seems like a fleeting dream,
And soon Life's yellow sun
Sinks down beneath the sea of Time,
Our earthly cart's arc done.

"Visions of ecstatic rapture, thicker than
the hair of a blacking brush and brighter
than the hues of a humming bird's pinions,
visit me in my slumber ; and borne on their
invi s ible wings, your image stands before
me, and I reach out to grasp it, like an old
pointer snapping at a blue-bottle fly. When
I first beheld your angelic perfections I was
bewildered, and my brain whirled round
like a bumble bee in a glass tumbler. My
eyes stood open like cellar doors in country
towns, I lifted up my ears to catch the ail
very accents of your voice. My tongue re
refused to wag, and in silent admiration I
drank in the sweet infection of love, as a
thirsty man swalloweth a tumbler of hot
whisky punch. Since the light of your
face full upon my life, I sometimes feel as
if I could lift myself by my boot strops to
the top of a church steeple. Day and night
you are my thought. When Aurora, blush
ing like a bride, rises from her saffron couch ;
when the jay -bird piper his tuneful lay in
the apple tree by the spring house; when
the chanticleer's shrill clarion heralds the
coming morn ; when the awakened pig
ariseth from his bed and grunteth and goeth
fbr his morning refreshments; when the
drowsy beetle wheels his drowning flight at
sultry noon-tide, and when the lowing cows
come home at milking 61110,1 think of thee:
and like a piece of gum elastic my heart
seemed to stretch clean across my bosom.
Your hair is like the mane of a surd horse
powdered with gold; and the brass pins
skewered through your waterfall fill me '
with unbounded awe. Your forehead is
smoother than the elbow of an old coat,
and whiter than seventeen hundred linen.
Your eyes are glorious to behold. Is their
liquid depths 1 see legions of little Cupids
battling and fighting like cohorts of ants in
old army crackers. When their fire hit me
full on my manly breast, it permeated my
entire anatomy, like as a load of bird shot
would go through a rotten apple. Your
nose is from a chunk of Parisian marble,
and your mouth puckered with sweetness.
Nectar lingers on your lips like honey on a
bear's paw, and myriads of unfledged kisses
are there ready to fly out and light some
where like young blue birds out of the
parent nest. Your lungh ring on my ears j
like the windharp's strains, or the bleat of
a stray lamb on the bleak hillside. The
dimples on your cheeks aro like bowers in
beds of roses, or like hollows in cakes of
home made sugar.
I am dying to fly to your presence and I
pour out the burning eloquence of my love,
as thrifty housewives pour out the hot cofke.
Away from you, lam melancholy as a sick I
eat. Uncout h fears, like a thousand win
nows, nibble at toy spirits, and my soul is
pierced through with doubts as an old cheese
is bored with skippers.
My love f o r you is stronger than the smell
of old butter, Switzer cheese, or a kick of a
mule ; it is purer than the breath of a young
cow, and more unselfish than the kitten's
first caterwaul. As the song bird hungers
for the light of day, the cautious mouse for
for the fresh bacon in the tray, a lean pup
hankers after new milk, so I long for thee.
You are fairer than a speckled pullet;
sweeter titan a Yankee doughnut fried in
sorghum molasses; brighter than the top
knot plumage on the head of a muscovy
duck. You arc candy kisses, pound cake,
and sweetened toddy altogether.
If these remarks will enable you to see
the inside of my soul, and me to win your
affections, I shall be as happy as a wood
pecker in a cherry tree, or a stage horse in
green pasture. If you cannot reciprocate
my thrilling passion, I will die away like a
poi:oned bedbug, and in calming years when
the shadows grow long from the hills, and
the philanthrophie frog sings his evening
hymn, you, happy in another's love, can

BRIDAL. Tura.—flow thankful our "well
educated" young ladies of this day must
feel that they do not live among such a half
civilised people as the Isiestorians must be,
from the following account of one of their
wedding customs: After the marriage °ere
money has been performed, the wedding
party is taken in wagons to the house of the
bridegroom's parents. When the second
wagon, in which the bride is seated alone,
reaches the gate opening into the yard in
which the house is situated, it is halted, and
the bridegroom's mother comes to meet it,
with a baby and three suits of baby clothes
in her arms. Bhe throws the child and the
clothes into the arms of the bride, who is
required to undress and dross the baby three
times in the presenee of the mother-in•law,
who watches every movement, is only a
mother•in•Jaw can watch a daughter-in-law.
If the newly-made bride does not perform
the operation to the satisfaction of her se
vere judge, she is considered unfit for the
position ; the wagon is turned round, and
she is taken back home for further instruc
tion, and the poor bridegroom is compelled
to live in single blessedness until his wife is
educated up to the proper standard. —L' . ? : .
Utah and the Mormons.
The delegate in Congress from Utah, Mr,
W. IL Moeller, has recently given an inter
gating sketch of that Territory, in a letter.
According to this account, the Mormons
have built up Utah km a desert waste,
which twenty years ago was twelve hundred
miles from either settlements or navigable
rivers. It is now a flourishing young State
containing one hundred thousand inhabit
ants with a territorial extension of seventy
five thousand square miles. There are
eighty.six flourishing towns and cities in the
Territory, with neer one hundred post-o&
cos, while the grist and saw mills, woollen
manufactories, and many other branches of
the mechanic arts are quite equal to those
of the other States. There are one hun
dred churches, one hundred and twenty
school houses and three theatres, which
equal in appearance those of the older
The Mormons left Missouri in 1844, cross
ing lowa, then a wilderness, and encamped
on the banks of the Missouri, in what was
then called the Pottawatotnie country. Here
they laid out the town, now known as Coun
cil Bluffs. In the spring of 1847, an ad
vanced guard of ono hundred and fifty men
proceeded to Salt Lake Valley, and selected
the present alto of Salt Lake City in July of
that year. A few of these pioneers, under
the lead of President Young, returned to
the Missouri river the NM fall, leaving
most of the men at the lake to plough, and
plant during the following season. In 1848,
the great bulk of emigration of that year
reached the valley, and found that much
had been raised for their sustenance. The
march was attended by many hardships.
The industry of the emigrants is shown in
the fact that during the tedious journey of
four months' duration, the apinning-wbeel
and loom continued their work, and hum
are& of yards of goods were woven, the
heavy wagon sad slow motion of' ox-teams
giving an opportunity to spin and weave
while the train was in motion. The first
printing press ever taken west of the Mis
souri was established by the Mormons at
Independence in the years 1832 2 33. In
850, there was not a single roof in Salt
Lake City, which now contains twenty thou
sand inhabitants. The Mormon emigration
from Europe, froin PM to 1857 inclusive,
is estimated at an annual average of two
ihousand souls, or an aggregate of thirty-six
thousand; while the -emigration from the
old States during the same period has been
about twenty flair thousand. The estimated
cost of taking these people to Utah is eight
million three hundred thousand dollen.—
The emigration from Europe this year is
put down at four thousand souls.
About one-third of the emigrants have
paid their own expenses. The remaining
two-thirds have been aided by "the perpet
ual emigration fund," which has been in or
ganized existence about twenty years, and is
composed of contributions, tithes, legacies,
and funds drawn from various sources, both
in Europe and America. This fund is kept
up by the beneficiaries repaying when con
venient the expense incurred in their imi
gratin, so that others may receive like as
sistance. During the present year $156,000
was contributed in Salt Lake City alone, to
enable others to reach America.

"Mark Twain" writes to his "Cousin
Jennie" on the added of "Female Suff.
rage," as follows : There is one insuperable
obstacle in the way of female suffrage, Jon
nic ; I approach the subject with tear but
it must out. A
woman would never vote
because she would have to tell her age at
the palls. And even if aho did dare to vote
once or twice when she was of age, you
know what dire results would follow from
"putting this and that together . " in after
times. For instance, in an unguarded mo
ment, Miss A. says she voted for Mr. Smith.
Her auditor, who knows that it is seven
years since Smith ran for anything, easily
cyphers out that she is at least seven years
over age, instead of the young pullet she
has been making herself out to be. No,
Jennie, this fashion of registering the name,
age, residence and occupation of every voter
is a fatal bar to female suffrage.
Women will never be permitted to vote
or hold office, Jennie, and it is a lucky
thing for me and many other men, that
such is the decree of fate. Because, yuu
see, there are some few measures they would
all unite on, there are ono or two measures
that would bring out their entire voting
strength in spite of their apathy to inakiug
themselves conspicuous, and there being
more women than men in this State, they
would trot these measures through the Leg
islature with a velocity that would be appal
ling. For instance they would enact :
I. That all men should be at home at
ten, p. In., without fail•
2. That married men should bestow eon•
siderable attention on their wives.
3. That it should be banging offense to
sell whisky in saloons, and that tine and
disfranchisement should follow drinking in
4. That the smoking of cigars to men
should be forbidden and the smoking of
pipes utterly abolished.
5. That the wife should have a little prep
erty of her own when she married a wan
who hadn't any.

GRANT ANNTOrs TO RR A DIcTATOR.—
A prominent officer of the Union army,
while driving with a friend a few days
since, took occasion to eulogise some of the
characteristics of Grant, declaring that the
American people did not understand him.
"I saw" said this officer "a great deal of
him during the war, and knew all his strong
and weak points." "But" asked one of
the parts, do you think he isNhe right man
to elect President of the United States?"
To this the Union - officer replied: 'That
depends upon circumstances. If tho peo
ple desire military rule, Grant should be
elected; for, from my knowledge of the
man, I will stake my reputation on the pre
diction that if he is elected he will proclaim
himself Dictator within twelve months after
he is sworn into office l" This is the opin
ion of a Union soldier who held close per
sonal relations with Grant during the greater
portion of the late war.
