Some who thy sole dominion own, As Nature's brightest, eldest son, Say thou hest taught the soul will live, And her account to God must give. Others deny that this will be, And both for proof appeal to thee.

Military ardor also begins to show itself "among those who have usually been de barred, by. their cloth, from warlike oc cupations, although chaplains, in Revo lutionary times, occasionally wielded the sword or musket. It is stated that the ilkes Guard, a military company in Washington, G-a., have elected the Rev. G. G. Norman, of the Methodist Church, Captain, in place of their late Captain, Hon. I. T. Irvin. SFIOEING HORSES FOR WINTER.-N. P. Willis, of the Home Journal, in one of his recent Idlewild Letters, says : "You will have discpvered, of course, that you cannot have uninterrupted winter riding with a horse shod in the ordinary way.— The sharp points of frozen mud will wound the frog of the foot. and with snow on the ground, the hollow hoof soon collects a hard ball, which makes the footing very insecure. But those evils are remedied by a piece of sole leather nailed on under the shoe—a pro tection to the hoof which makes a sur prising difference in the confidence and surefootedness of the animal's step."

WILLIAM ELDER. When I was a very little boy I had a very big dog. He took his name from his color—it was Buff—not from his char acter, for he was as remarkable for mag (dog)nanimity as for strength and cour age. He was very patient, too ; all the worry and work that a seven-year old urchin could inflict upon him in a long holiday, never disturbed his equi(cani)- nimity. He probably bad once been a puppy, but no one who knew him would think of uncoiling such an inference, from the principles of natural history, to . his prejudice—he was every inch and every ounce a dog, and one of the big gest, noblest of the race, at that. How he hated the harness of my little wagon in summer, and board-sled in winter I He was faithful, and fond of his little master'; but, naturally enough, while he performed the duties and felt the senti ments of a dog, he resisted the degrada tion of a hack. Nothing else ever made him exhibit any doggedness of temper. I never caught him in a sneak, except when he was trying to escape the collar and traces ; or at a dodge, except when a hole in the fence, or the low door of his dormitory, offered him an opportunity of stripping me off his hack. My troub les and tumbles of this sort, often ruffled my temper with him ; but more mature reflection has long since reconciled me to his conduct in this respect, and in the "late remorse .of love," I admit that he was right. Alas ! poor Buff! Eiery dog, thOy say, has his day ; but Buffs was shamefully shortened. A beggar poisoned him; for it; was a a principle with . . him never never to let tatterdemalion cross our door-step. He had an opiniOn, and a post, to maintain—he had some dignity of his own, and, of course, a de cent indignation against vagabonds de ficient in b.ot c h dr.e.ss and address_ suspected them of fleas, perhaps ; per haps of felony I anyhow, he could not abide them , and if it was only a caprici ous antipathy, I don't think it. a very serious impeachment of his other!ise un questionable philanthropy. He may have been a reformer, and had a mission : and for that reason, must be:excused if he garrisoned the premises with rather se vere fidelity. I doubt not that excel lent authorities can be found for growl ing and barking • alarmingly for consci ence' sake, and I claim the benefit for the justification of Buff ; the more by token that the poor fellow fell a martyr to it at last. See, there is a doctrine and a par able even in the . life and death of a dog. One day—how well I remember the day—l was trying to drive a family of refractory pigs out of the yard, and, after a dozen fa:lures, called upon Buff for as sistance. He had been looking on con templatively for half an hour, while the struggle lasted, without offering any as sistance, or exhibiting any interest in the matter, and now absolutely refused to interfere. There was another witness of my perplexity—my father was stand ing on the porch, very quietly walting for the result. A regular fight had be gan with Buff for his insolent indiffer ence and• downright disobedience ; but, detecting the presence, and hoping for the interposition of the paramount au thority, I began my complaint with, "Papa, what is the reason that Buff won't hunt these pigs? "Why, William, don't you know that a big dog will not worry little pigs? If you want to have .help at a mean little job, you must employ a puppy in the service." Duff was fairly vindicated, and I had a lesson which has served me many a time since. Just then I felt only the rebuke; without at all relishing it, and, indeed, without fully understanding its philoso phy. That night, after saying my daily prayer, and feeling as good as if I had been whipped, or praised, or pardoned ' some little iniquity, and had my account with the world and the world to come happily squared, and at liberty to begin again, I renewed the complaint and apol ogy by saying, "But, papa, what ia the reason that Buff oughtn't to worry little pigs when they are in the yard, where they have no busineis to be 1" "Why, see hero, my son ; little pigs have some rights, oven when they are doing wrong. Haven't they ?" "No ; I don't see how they can be right when they are wrong." Smiling in a way that made me think I was not quite , up to the argument, al though I could not soe the kink in it, he answered. "Well, then, if the pigs aro not quite right when they are wrong, or, what is a very different thiug, if they have no rights when they are in e,uythinir wrong' —as, for instance, in the wrong yard or wrong trough—little boys and little dogs may, nevertheless, be Wrong in their way of turning them ont—may they not ?" "I suppose so ; but"— "Oome, come, William ; you can de fend yourself any other time. Buff knows we are talking about him, and he is pressing in between us here, and look ing at you, as much as to say, Little mas ter, I can not speak for myself, you know —do listen to what papa is going to say for me." "Get away, Buff," was my answer ; "you have your great big paw on my toe, that has a splinter in it." "He has a worse grip of you than that, William : he has you in the wrong. Put, up your little foot, and let me see that dreadful sore toe, Tat, there is no splinter there." "But there was one, yesterday. See how red it is." • •'Red, William ; it isn't as red as your face ; and I know it doesn't hurt you as badly as you feel somewhere else." "I want to go to bed, papa." "No, no, my boy; you are too wide awake just now for that. You have not been so wide awake, all over and all through, for a week and I want you to reflect, while you lie awake to think over this matter, that there are some things and some ways of doing things, that are unworthy of anything but puppies and mean' people ; no matter what wrongs they undertake to correct. You wouldn't smother a poor little pig in a puddle be cause it happened to be trespassing on your playground. You wouldn't kick a little baby with your boots on, for tak ing your piece of bread and butter that happened to fall , within its reach, any more than Buff would crush the bones of a little pig for playing in the yard. It is net what a wrong doer May seem to doserwr.whaza you..are Angry, beat what is becommg.yourself, that you should do. Now, my son, shake hands with Buff— poor Buff-=and then with me, and go - to your little bed. " There, that's right ; now run alone.f l "But, papw"— • "Never mind,:now ; go, and don't walk as if you were carrying a weight, nor look as if it were too heavy for you. .Open your window, for the robins will be sing ing in the apple tree in the morning ; your dear little toe will be well as ever, and you will be as happy and merry as a bird again. You will be ray own brave boy; and when you get to be a big one, you'll understand Buff." The moral of my story, as applied to the HUNTERS OF MEN, is—altered a little from the original—"ln all your service, copy Buff." THE WATCH OF GEN. WASIIINGTON.--- We were shown yesterday, says the Louisville Journal, a gold watch of the olden-time, which is of great value as a memento of an important event in Amer ican history. The Watch was a present from Gen. Washington to - Gen. Lafay ette, and bears the following inscription on the back of the inner case :—" G. Washington to Gilbert Mattiers de La fayette. Lord Cornwallis's capitula tion,-Yorktown, December 17, 1791.": The watch is of London manufacture, and was made in 1769. It is said that the watch Was taken to San Francisco from Paris by a Frenchman, who be came embarrassed there, and sold it to the present owner for the sum of fifty dollars. EFFECTS OF DRINK.—John D. Defroes, writing to the Indianapolis Journal, says "Twenty years ago, I was a looker-on at the doings of Congress. The two men who attracted the mist attention were William Cost Johnson, of Mary land, and Thomas F. Marshall; of Ken tucky. They were the most brilliant orators—the 'observed of all observers.' Mr. -Johnson died in Maryland a few days ago, a pauper and an outcast, un noticed and unlamented. The papers a few days ago, informed us that Marshall is an inmate of a hospital at Buffalo.— Intemperance, of course, is the cause of all this." FUGITIVE SLAVE CAUGHT. --a well dressed nogro, with one hundred and fifty dollars in his pocket, was arrested near Rome, Indiana, a few nights ago, and taken to the jail in-Hawsville, Ky. He confessed that he was a runaway, and be longed to a Mr. Boyd; of Louisiana.-- Louisville Jortrnal. ' Spare moments are like the gold dust of time. Of all the portions of our life spare moments are the most fruitful in good or evil. Th(iy are the gaps through which temptations find the ac_ coz:s to the garden of the soul. Terms, C).aae .IDcilla,r a Year- WHAT A CONTRAST.—When about ten years ago, Millard Fillmore was Presi dent of the United States, and the frolic some Palmettoes threatened to cut up some of their odd shines, that excellent executive officer caused a strong body of troops to be quietly put into Fort Moul trie, The gay and- gallant Palmettoes awoke one fine morning, and foind this awkward fact suddenly staring them in the face, whereupon their chivalric gov ernor waxed wroth and applied to Pres ident Fillmore for an explanation. "Sir," was the answer, "the President of the United States .is not responsible for hie official conduct to the•governor of South Carolina." - The amiable President then in office did not particularly affect heroic qualities ; but he understood his duty to the Constitution he was sworn to sup port, and his vigorous mode of confrent ing rebellion nipped in the bud to the great satisfaction of everybody - except the combustible and explosive Palmet toes. If the gentleman now at the head of the Government, -says the New 'York World, had had the forecast, discretion and spirit, two months ago, to do his plain duty, he would not now be the ob ject of universal contempt and derision. He had good reason to suppose, more than two -months ago, that some such mad prank as we now witness would be attempted close on the heels of Lincoln's election ; end it was the clearest dictate of prudence that the exigency should find him prepared. A few ships of war in complete readiness for any service that might be wanted of them; adequate gar risons in the forts, and moderate detach ments of the regular army stationed at points whence they could be readily transported by railroad to the scene of the apprehended disturbantes, would have prevented the rebellion from swel ling to itpresent formidable dimensions. MRS. BONAPARTE, Of BALTIMORE From a letter of M. Gaillardet, dated Paris, Dec. 7th, to the Courrier des Etats- Unis, we translate the. following : "I had the honor and pleasure of meet ing, a few - days ago, at the table of one of the most agreeable American ladies of the Champs-Blysees Quarter, with Mrs. Patterson, the first wife of Prince Jerome Bonaparte. She is ono of the most interesting of Women, by reason of her character and her wit, which has pre served all its vivacity, notwithstanding her great age. She speaks French with much facility, and told me some lively particulars of her relations with Prince Jerome. She possesses numerous letters from her former husband, and proposes one day to publish them, with memoirs. In yielding to the desire of her grand-son to pursue a military career in the French army, she wished him to preserve an in dependence and rank worthy of his name. With this view, the excellent woman gives the young officer an annual allow ance of 26,000 francs. Mrs. Patterson's fortune consists of savings made from the pension granted to her by Napoleon I. as a feeble compensation for the de struction ofler prospects for a reason of State. This pension was stopped by the Bourbons. -In restoring it to the hon orable septnagenary, Napoleon II I. would do an act of justice as well as o policy, in the interest of the memory o his two uncles." DEATH OF A NOTED CHARACTER : Jas. W. Whitney, familiarly known as "Mil ord Coke," the King of the Missouri Legislative lobby, died in Pike county, Mo., on the 13th ult., aged 84 years. In former times, the "Lobby" or third house, was regularly organized at every session of the Missouri Legislature. "Milord Coke" was the perpetual president at the third house, always claiming that position as a matter of right. As a par liamentarian, he had no superior in the State, and many' a speaker and Lieut. Governor has been brought to the blush by "Milord's" stinging reviews of some of the decisions given by them from the Chair. Mr. Whitney was a graduate of Williams' College. He afterwards stud died law in Cazenovia, N. Y., and emi grated to Alton while Illinois was yet a territory. Before coming West he mar ried in Massachusetts, where he lived with-his wife and son for a short time, when one day, from some cause which he never would explain, he packed up his clothes and left, never seeing or corres ponding with his family afterwards._ Cr Another English Prince will shortly visit this country. It is Prince Albert, the secondson of queen 'Vic toria, who lips4 - eft 'the Ship Euryalus, and will join St-'6egrge,:a larger vessel, which will sail early-best- year for the Lithe: - and North Araerita.- NO. 26. A PRACTICAL ABGIIMENT.-8011. Doo little of Wisconsin, in his - speech on Thursday a-week, took up the 'ffigitive slave agitation, and hit the nail on the head as follows : "He said Mr. Lincoln was in favor of giving the South the- fugitive slave law, and read speeches to support the asser tion. The South complain that they lose a great deal by fugitives and few are reclaimed. This arises from the fact that they possess a species of property with a will of its own, and legs of its own, and desire of its own to get sway. This is no fault of ours, and the North are not responsible for that. The Sena tor from Va., (Mr. Mason) told us that a few years ago Virginia lost annually $lOO,OOO, and he believed she lost the . same now. He would concede that for the sake of argument Virginia had about 500,000 slaves, worth on an average $BOO, (at least before the panic) making $400,- 000,000. The loss of $lOO,OOO is only one fortieth of one per cent., or about one qaarter of a mill on a dollar. This fs less than the risk incurred in any othsr species of, property in the United States. Suppose the people of the border States form themselves into an Insurance Com pany, how small would be the premium to cover the loss. This special property has special advantages. It has advantages of representation, and is it strange that such property should be subjected to peculiar risks ? • What will those gentle men gain by severing the bonds of the Union ? If they run this slight risk now, what risk will they run then, when tke Northern States will be, under no ob%- gations. to return their property? Would 10 per cent. cover the loss of the State ? RENFREW AS A FAST AMER/CAN S A large picture in a recent number of Punch is entitled ' Latest from Ameri ca,' and represents the Prince of Wales Quills return hum . ii,..fter his American tour. The Royal yoith - has adhered a change during his absence. He has be come Americanized, and now sits be.: fore the grate with his legs resting on the mantel-piece, a cigar in his mouth' and a pocket-pistol in his hand, while a a box of fragrant Havannas is on the table near by. A sherry-cobler, with its. characteristic straws, is on the mantel piece. The young prince wears a shock ing bad hat, tipped over on one sid‘,. sports a goatee, and really looks like " one of the boys." In the background stands Prince Albert, gazing on his son with an expression of amazement, not nniningled with fear. or Quilp has a mortal hatred of pian ofortes, and resists all attempt of his family to get one into the house. • " You don't like music," says Mrs. Quilp. "It is not a question of music," re plie d the incorrigible husband. "I like music ; but silence is delicious compared with discords and disagreable noises gen erally. Good playing is charming, but practicing' is excruciating. Think how much wretched, ear-torturing prac tice a poor parient ' must bear before the best of his five girls has made her , playing tolerable even to herself I Who wants to make a Babel of his house und er pretence of loving music ? It is a de lusion, a humbug, a device of the enemy ; and I'll none of it." GB'Whittier, the poet, says in refer ence to the present crisis : "The South are setting fire•to the clothes upon their backs, hoping their neighbors may scorch. their fingers in trying to put it out"— He also says, "that those fighting about Lincoln's election, are fighting with the census-takers, and Greenlears arithme tic ; they look like the figure 3 getting angry because it ain't the figure 5." stir Postmaster General Holt hall adopted a short and sensible policy to ward a few disunion postmasters who propose to resign their offices. He in forms them that if they name successors who will give the usual securities to the Department, they will be accepted, and business permitted to go on as before.— Otherwise, the offices will be discontinu ed. • Ervrhe Hartford 'Times says that bolt's pistol factory is now Ariven to its full cayacity.—three hundred pistols' ale turned Oul'daily, finished and cOmitete.. .
