Rome anti gritpx Oh,,there is a power to make each hour As sweet , as hehren - designed it ; Nor need we roam to bring it home, Though few there be that find it. We seek too high for things close by, And lose what nature found us; For life hath here no charms eo dear As home and friends around us! We oft destroy the present joy For future hopes—and praise them ; While flowers as sweet bloom at our feet, If wed but stoop . to raise them ; For things afar still sweeter are When youth's brightspell has bound us; But soon we're taught that earth has naught Like home and friends around us The friends that speed in time of need, When hope's last reed is shaken, To show us still, that, come what will, We are not quite forsaken ; Though all were night—if but the light From Friendship's alter crowned us, 'Twobld prove the bliss of earth was this —Our home and friends around ns I OLEANLINE3B.—"O/01111111:10199 is 8, in godliness," is said.

A coarse shirt, or a calico dress, is not necessarily vulgar, but dirt is essensial ly so. We do not here refer of course, to oue'e condition while engaged in his or hers industrial occupation. Soiled hands, and even e. begrimed face, are badges of honor in the field, the work shop, or the kitchen ; but in a country in which soap and water-abound, there is no excuse for carrying them into the parlor or dining-room. • A clean skin is as essential to health, beauty, and personal comfort, as it is to decency; and without health, and that perfect freedom from physical disquiet which comes only from the normal ac tion of all the functions of the bodily or gans, your behavior can never be otitis factory to yourself or agreeable to others. INJUDICIOUS EARLY RISING.-Dr. in the February number of his Journal of Health says ; "One of the very worst economies of time, is that filched from necessary sleep. The wholesale but blind commendation of early rising is as misphevious in practice as it is arrant folly in theory. • Fierly rising is. a . crime . against_the noblest, part of our physical nature, unless it is preceded. by an early retiring. We caution parents particu larly not to allow their children to b . ° waked up in the mornings ; let nature wake them- up, she will not do' it prema turely ; but have a care that they go to bed at an early hour ; let it be earlier and, earlier, WWI it is found that they wake up of themselves in fall time to dress for breakfast.

From the - Groot Plains. Hop the Union Pacific Bail Road is built. An intelligent correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette has written a very interesting letter, showing the manner in which this last wonder of the century is - being completed. He says : -There is nothing connected with the Unless Pacific Railroad that is not wonderful. The possibility of constrwt ing such a road at some future day has fang loomed up as one of the events Of a grander future' w.hich all believed was to come for the land. To look upon so much of it adcomplished; to watch the marvelous progress of each day, and feel sure that the great enterprise which we had consigned to the future of our dreams, is to be a reality for us, makes one prouder of the noble days in which we live. In one sense - the road is as great an achievement as the war, and as grand a triumph to those who have seen rich of the former and looked from this point upon the unfoldings of the latter, they appear equally impressive What the country has dreamed about for many years is becoming a reality much faster than the people know. One year ago, but forty miles were finished ; this morn ing, we look back from our train over , a day's rapid run, and forward sixty miles. To-night, three additional miles of rail will mark the day's advance. " Our party left the depot at Omaha at 9 o'clock on the morning of the 3rd tilt. The sation-house, and the common passenger cars, were better than those on the road from Washington to New York ; those who have been so unfortu nate as to make the fatter trip will all hope they are very much better, if the love of country be in their . hearts. "The train, which was made up for the excursionists, consisted of cars as elegant as any that can be found east of the Missouri. It was very difficult to look at them and realize that before night they would , be roaring along over , lains from which hostile Indians, deer and antelope have not been driven yet. VALLEY OF THE PLATTE "Long before the valley is reached, it spreads before the eye like a vast bay opening out into au ocean, whither the track appears to lead. It is forty miles from the low, rolling hills on the north, to the opposite and similar range on the south. Between, the surface is almost perfectly flat, though its regular ascent toward the -west, of about ten feet to the mile, gives ample drainage. The soil is very rich, and the mind falters in its attempt 0138th:este the future of such a valley, or its immense capabili ties. The grain fields of Europe are mere garden-patchee beside the-green oceans which roll. from Colorado to Indiana. The valley widens with the advance. The hills behind sink into the plain until the horizon there is perfect. Those : . on either side grown fainter, till through the heated air they-take on the appearance of low , islands seen across many miles of water. " Much of the land at the month of the valley is under cultivation, and the deep black of the freshly turned loam, the dark green of the wheat, the lighter grass, the deeper shades, and the brown . of that which the fires of the autumn spared, make np the wide expanse a mosaic which nature alone could color, end the prairies only-find room to 'dis play. Further on, huge plows, drawn by 'eight oxen, iaboreti* - slowly along, - each furrow being an added ripple to the tide which is sweeping over these rich regions—a tide whose' ebb . the youngest will never know. "After a rapid run of 1 . 50 miles, we stopped for an excellent dinner at Grand Island. , A CONTINENTAL MILESTONE "The* c ,moron mile posts seem to Six miles back are other trains of like measure insignificant distances pon the upon are Character.

"Crossing the North Platte, on bridge about three thousand feet long, the train soon stopped at Ncirth Platte Station. which can propably, for a time, be regarded. as a frontier town. Last fall there was no building here. Now the Railroad Company have fine brick car-houses, there is a good hotel, where excellent fare is provided, and on the main street fronting the track are thir ty-six buildings. The depot and ware houses are overflowing with stores of all kinds. Within twenty miles of the end Of the track a few'of the party rode on the caw-catcher. It seemed marvelous to drive on at twenty miles an hour over rails that had only been down for‘ten days. But the perfection with which the work is done allows it, and makes it safe. It was exhilarating in the extreme thus under the flags which streamed on either side, to rush over these prairies so lately bound with links °lkon to the _ empire of the East.. "Three hundred'and twenty-five miles oat, a construction train of eighty cars stood on a side track. It was loaded with iron, ties, spikes and chains, in exactly such proportions as were needed. It looked the very embodiment of sys tem, and was one key to the rapidity with which the work progresses. A little farther on stood a similar train, and next we stopped in the rear of the one where the tracklayers resided. Sev enty-six hours swift riding had brought us to this goal. The bills of Colorado were in plain sight. San Francisco was nearer than Boston. " The road has been a constant won der from the start. Its depots, its car shops, its equipment, its remarkable smoothness, its high rate of speed,- its long bridges, and its well-ordered eating houses, bad attracted constant attention to it as a railroad alone. " Every step - trod revealed new won ders. .The great achievement grew upward toward its real froportione with every throb of the engine. But all we saw was commonplace and natural be side the scene that awaited us where the track was being laid. If the rest had excited amazement, this new wonder took all the attributes of magic. Fic tions of the East must be're written to match the realities of this West. BOW THE ROAD TB BUILT. "The plain fact will reveal the mag. nitude of the work. There is really little known by the people of the char acter of the enterprise. Mott think that a company of capitalists are hastily putting down -a rude track, over which cars can he moved with care, for the purpose of securing rands and money from the Government. The fact is that one of the most complete roads of which the country can tweet, with equipments that surpass many, is being laid with a speed that tails to impress the nation, simply because it is not believed. But let the facts tell their plain yet wonder ful story. ' " General J. S. and D. C. Casement, of Ohio, grade the road, lay the track, and put up the telegraph. The graders go' first.' There are two thousand of them: Their advance is near the - Beach Bills, and their work is Chine to Jules burgh ' "Of the tie.getters and wood-choppers there are 1,500. Their axes are resound ing in the Black Hills, over Laramie Plains, and in the passes of the Rocky Mountains. They have 100,000 ties in these hills awaiting safeguards for trains to haul them. Then follow the tie lay ere carefully performing their share of the work. "Now go back twenty Miles on the road and look at the inn:lei:lse canetruc tion trains loaded with• ties'and rails, and all things needed for-the work. It is like the grand reserve of an army. VOL. XIII.-NO. 48. takes on a load of rails, about forty, with the proper proportion of spikes and chairs, making a load, when the horses are started off on a full gallop for the trook-layers. On each side of these trucks are rollers to facilitate raining off the iron. "The rails within reach, parties of five men stand on either side. One in the rear throws a rail upon the rollers three in advance seize it, and run out with it to the proper distance. The chairs have, meantime, been set under the last rails placed. The two men in the rear, with a single awing, force the end of - the rail into the chair, and the chief of the squad calls out 'Down,' in a tone that equals the 'Forward' to an army. Every thirty seconds there came that brave 'Down; 'Down,' on either side the track. They were the pendulum beats of a mighty era ; they marked the time of the march and its regulation, step. ' "If` it is asked : 'How does the work get on?' again let the facts answer. On the 9th of May, 1666, but forty miles of road were completed. In a hundred and eighty-two working days thereafter, two hundred and forty five additional miles ,were laid, and put in prime con diti in, every rail and tie and spike having been brought up from the rear. Seven saw mills furnish the ties and lumber. All bridges are framed, the pieces numbered, an 3 set up where wanted Without the least delay. The bridge at Loup Fork is 1,500 feet long and as fine a Howe truss ae can be found in the laud. While our train was run ning the sixty miles from North Platte, over a mile of track had been put down, and one train passed over it. From one o'clock till four in the afternoon, a mile and two hundred feet were added to this while the party was looking on. WRSTERN CAR suers. " After the return of the party to Omaha, it visited the extensive shops of the railroad company at that point. ".The depot grounds, upon which they are situated, contain forty acres, special• ly devoted to these buildings, and to passenger and freight traffic. Within five years it is estimated that the whole of this space will be needed for the business of the road. " The engine house will hold twenty one locomotives. There are two others further West. Thirty-two engines are already in use on this road, whose ter minus is in the •dese:t,' and twenty three more are on the way, and already want ed. Those last constructed are coal burners.- The fuel to move ihem is to come from the Black Hills. In a few years it is confidentlyexpected that the iron to supply thee° very works will be obtained from the same point.— Think of importing iron for Omaha from the West. " Passenger cars are in process of construction equal to the best. Emi grant cars were being built, and the frames of an hundred freight cats were ready to be put together. Several traveling post-office care are already finished. For stations on the route, the distributing boxes will be - marked North Platte,' Fort Laramie; 'Salt Lake,"Sacramento,' and 'San Francisco,' while the closed pouches, at no distant day, will be labeled 'China, Through,' ' India, Official,' Sandwich Islands,' 'Russian 4merica,' and 'Japan.' And the cars are built as if the' service were already secure. Every particle of work' in all the multifarious kinds demanded, shows implicit faith in a future of grand proportions for the road." up The New Glascow (Nova Scotia) Chronicle says that two frogs were found a few days ago deeply imbeded in the Acadia coal mile. One of them was killed, unfortunately, by the fall of coal: They were found in a small cavity filled with water, in the centre of the coal seam, 160 feet beneath the surface , . The living , animal is small sized, per fectly shaped, and it is quite lively, but at the same time is blind and has no Morith: k .
