Bright shoiKf the sun when for th West,
Ahhy, I Haw thee start,
Yet ntill a cloud of deepest ploom,
Wan shading over my heart.
Yet when thy partin; kis was giv'u
FleHveen a tear and smile,
With anguish ih-pp, thy mother's heart
Seem'd breaking e'en the while.
Now thou art gone, how sad and lone
Is the forsaken nest ;
I long to sec thy face again,
And clasp thee to my breart.
Yp oft for thee my absent one,
My bosom heaves a sigh,
Thou art as fondly cherished now,
As if thou still were nigh.
I Diiaa thee, in the evening hours,
Thou hast so oft lieguil'd,
Amid those pensive hours, my heart
Slill yearns for thee my child.
I miss thy fond bright smile, that fill'd
Thine eyes in days before ;
While seated by thy mother's side
Cunning thy lessons o'er.
Ah then, I feared it would he thus,
That in sonic future day,
Thou'd leave thy early home and friends,
And from thy mother stray.
Now, thou ait in a fctrangcr'n home,
And stranger's voices there,
To greet thee in the morning hour, J
And mid the evening air.
And thou, may'gt list but list invain,
To hear thy mother's voice,
That oft in younj; life's early years,
Has made thy heart rejoirc.
Yet still, within thy mother's heart,
Atrection lives as true,
I love as well, as in those years,
Say, Abby near, do you?
A teacher's task, thy cirly choice,
Devolves upon thee now,
(,od grant, its cares and toils may bring,
No shades upon thy brow.
O, may life's path, ne'er prove to thee,
A dark and tedious way,
May irladiiess ever shed for thee,
Its bi ight and joyous ray.
Yet itill. mrtliii.ks I see thine eyrs,
Oft languishing wiCi care,
Then i:h a mother's f rvent love,
I breath'! a whispered ju ay'r,
Thai Co l may shield Ihy youthful hc
And ail my f vot-steps guide,
His Inly woul, thy anchor be,
Through life's evu.tl'ul tide.

"lie h id been deputed by the Captain to fire
(lie s c.nul gun, (when all o! tiers had tied.) and
v in id t!ie irel.inilioly Hail he pursued hisduly.
WiiPii all hope ha I lied, and the vessel neaily
level with the ae I, Holland Mas seen busy witli
Ins gun. I In la-il shot boom ' I out as the Art ic
sank, and he went down with her persevering
in tliw strict pel foruiancc of Jus duty." The,
I'poti the Artie's deck was seen
A noble form, and fair;
l inn, lesolulu amid the gloom
And scenes of dark despair!
His ear was pierced by shriek and wail,
And melancholy strain,
Of sti iiijling victim ! all around,
Who sought for help in vain 1
DoublM.ss in that depressing hour
Of dismay and pain,
He thought of home and lov'd ones far,
He'd never see again.
How'er, he did not flee the wreck,
To trust the treacherous wave,
Which bore some to a succoring hand,
Hut others to the gTave.
His post was at the signal gun,
" Wh"ti all thercjthad lied,"
Nor from his duty turned aside,
To dying or the dead !
Ah I no response, to cheer, was heard,
And hope had well nigh flown ,
Bat rumbled still o'er mountain foam
The signal's doleful tone!
The noble youth, with brow exposed,
Throughout, undaunted ttood,
Though gathering waters lashed his form
To wliclru it in the HooJ.
And calmly with the Artie sunk,
While yet the cannon's breath
Went moaning o'er the sea' expanse,
The aignal of his death !

The Two Sex to. There is much
truth in the following, which we clip from
the Syracuse Starulurd:
When ti raking youth Roes tislrny, friends
gut her round him in order lo restore him
lo the paths of virtue. Gentleness und
kindness are lavished upon him, to win
him Luck to innocence inui peace. No
one would suspect licit ho had ever sinned.
Iiat when n poor, coiili !in girl is Le
truved, hhi: nvt ives thu brand of society,
and is l.i iicefnrih driven from the ways of
virtue. The betrayer is honored, res.
perted mi 1 esteemed; but the ruilo I,
I.iiirl-Lrol.en victim knows there is. wo
peace, for her this si In of lli" grave. So
oiely li.-is tit) helping hand for her, no smile
of comfort, no voice of forgiveness.
These aro earthly moralities unknown
lo hctveii. There is u deep wrong in
1 them, mi l IVarful rre the rtonseijiKncci.

Matlers and Things In New 7jrV.
Ni.w York, Oct. 14.
Tim pj!ootn which fell upon our ci!y like
n visible shadow when (he loss of the
Arctic was rmnniinced, has not yet dis
appeared. It. is true, that the arrival at
S. John's, N. I'., oT the propeller Ves
tt , with thiity-one of the steamer's crew,
f.nd the in'iellicnce that the second male's
boat and another, containing (ogelher for
ty-five persons, reached Capo. Kace in
safety, have lessened the supposed ng-
grcgalu of victims; but as nearly nil the
rescued arc employees of the ship, w ho,
like base dastards, deserted their duly in
the. hour of peril, the report of Ihcir safe
ty creates very little interest in the pub
The entire numSer of lives known to
be saved thus far, is one hundred and
eight, and the three boots tint heard from
arc estiinalp.'l to have contained from scv-enly-live
to one hundred sou's. Urn; of
these missing crafts was manned by Mr.
Gouilie, Ihe first mat, the boatswain and
four hands, who were sent by Capt. Luce
to look after tho propeller, and could not
afterwards be taken on board the Arctic.
The other (wo were first-class lifo boats,
which might be made lo hold forty or lif
tv persons each. Mr. Hums, tho agent
of Adams Si Co., states positively, that
one of them was nearly filled with ladies,
only four men being on board of her
when she pushed off from the wreck. He
thinks this boat had oars. How the other
life boat was occupied, none of the sur
vivors who have been heard from seems
It is a mailer of doubt, whether the
family of Mr. Collins were tilted into the
sea by the breaking of a boat's tackle, or
not. Tiiey may have been among the la
dies in the life boat, yet it iscpiile as proba
ble that the first account was true. There
is not, I fear, any good ground for believ
ing they were saved.
The fearful lesson taught by this catas
trophe, will not be lost upon the owners
of our ocoan steamers. The important
fact ennnccied with this disaster, cainot
fail to make an ltiuYiitiie impression upon
all "who gojjwn to the .sea in ships."
The Arclio was racing through a blind
fog, at ihe rate of thirteen knots tin hour,
. i . i . t - i i i i i ,
wiieu me v csui sirucx iier; s;io nau no
fog bell ringing; and with four hundred
souls on board, she had not boats for two
uimireii. I ossuiv, tiie six 'jo.it s intirlit
have sustained two hundred and fifty per
sons tilbiat in s'ill water, but they could
no! have b ,'eu rowed and steered proper
ly with more than one hundred fifty on
board. Of this, I am positive, us I know
ihe size of the craft. There should be u
fog bell continually ringing in a fog, and
ihe speed checked, to prevent accidents of
this kind. There are rumors about town
this morning, that Mr. Collins has be
come insane. This, I find, on inquiry,
to be untrue. He is, however, laboring
under great prostration of body and mind.
Confusion worse confounded, reigns in
the political camp here. For the mayor
alty, there arc "six Riehmouds in the
field," viz: Augustus Schell, (hard-shell
Democrat,) Fernando Wood, (both shell
Democrat,) Jno. J. Herrick, (Whig,)
James W. Darker, (Know-No;hing,)
John N. Gcnin, (Independent,) Wilson
G. Hunt, (Ilufonn.) For most of the
charter offices, there are from three to live
cfndidalcs, and who will come riht side
up out of the chaos, II lipus himself coald
not guess. The oldest and hrcwdet cam
paigners arc at fault; as well they may be,
after tho late astounding news in IViih
s) lr'uiiia, Ohio und Indiana,
The verdict in tho case of Dr. Graham
seems to give universal satisfaction. His
counsel have given notice of a bill of ex
ceptions, but if wise, they will not move
fur a new trial. Another jury might be
less lenient. The maximum of punish
ment under the verdict, is seven years im
prisonment, cud the general opinion seems
to be, that he should be sentenced for the
full term. Jagcr, found guilty of mail
slaughter in tho third degree, has been
condemned to the State prison for three
years." I Its offense, was the stabbing to
death of u inui n lined Moran, during a
drunken quarrel. Yesterday, (mother fa
tal krlifo case was concluded in the court
of oyer and terminer. The prisoner,
Chas. Graham, was found guilty in the
same degree us Jagcr, mid rt'vcived the
same sentence. It would seem, hoV'vcr,
the Kpitit which is rile among Ihe rowuics
of this city, has not been checked by the
late examples. A deliberate homicide
was coinnitled in Ih oome street, last night
by an unknown man, who lenpe I upon
the platform of a Harlactn car und knock-
iellhe lr.;:l;;':n-'ti oil. ilic unfortunate
man, whose name whs Kkkert, died fif
teen minutes uftcrw nrds, in consequence
of the injuries he received by the fall. A
rowdy who had been rngaeed in a dispute
with Rickcrt, on Wednesday las!, is sus
pected to bo the guilty parly, b at he has
nut yet been arrested.
Some of the small banks of this city
are shaking in the wind . The Knicker
bocker, Suffolk, F.ighth avenue, and Bank
of the. Union, have suspended operations,
and their circulation is going in for re
demption. It U scarcely possible, that
bill-holders .should sustain any loss by the
failure of these concerns, whatever may
be the fate or the depositors. The fact
is, we have too many banks of the small
fry class. They do anything but a legiii
,fnate business, ut.d the sooner they arc
:ound tip and (heir notus redeemed from
the proceeds of their stock in the hands of
the Comptroller, (he better. The Knick
erbocker Savings Bank also has failed.
The weather here is warm enough for
August, and the furs, merinocs, and other
winter goods behind the plate-glass win
dows of the fashionable stores in Broad
way, look singularly unseasonable.
A fine body of firemen, from Lynn,
Mass., calling themselves the Silver Greys
nd wearing a beautiful uniform of that
color, are now receiving the hospitality of
the fire department of this city.
The cholera, which has nearly ceased
its ravages on terra lirina, is making a
frightful havoc at sea. On board the Har
vest Queen, from Liverpool, and the I'is
catoro from Havre, both arrived yester
day, the total number of deaths on the
voyage wai one hundred and twenty-five.
Seventy-five dead bodies were thrown
overboard from the former, and fifty from
The Second avenue railroad compnrij
was yesterday mulcted in 13,000 dama
ges, for a breach of contract in suspend
ing the laying of concrete rail, after hav
ing agree therefor. Whenever a jury get
a chance of this kind at a railroad corpo
ration, they arc pretty sure to give the
plaintiff a rousing verdict.
Besides the criminal trials in the court
of oyer and terminer this week, there
nave been two In ilie co n i of "sessions j
one for manslaughter in the fourth degree,
and the other for rape. Bjtli the olFen
ders were found guilty and sentenced to
two year's imprisonment. So we go !
All the theaters here, seem to be doing
a good business, notwithstanding the 'hard
times. At Ihe Broadway Lnglish Opera
is decidedly successful. Miss Louisa
I'yne, the prim;i donna, is a delightful
singer) but the "great Engliidi tenor," as
he is culled, is by no means equal to Wood,
Wilson, and others, who have preceded
him in the same line.
Business continues to be dull, and re
trenchment of expenses seems to be Ihe
order of the day among our merchants.
Still there are no heavy failures, and al
though we shall probably havo a 'tight"
lime this fall and next winter, there is a
fair prospect of a renewal of trade in the
spring. The clearing house which was
established last spring by the different
banks, has been the cause of the suspen
sion of the banks reported above. If a
bank fails to settle up its accounts daily,
it is suspended from the privileges of the
house, which causes a general run upon
it, which few banks can go through safe-
A Good Rebuke, A very good lady
in Boston had in her employment, a young
man from tho country. On certain occa
sions he was instructed to inform any com
pany who mjght ring at the door that Mrs.
, was not at home.
On:", day, John made his reply to an in
timate friend of the lady, who shortly
went away, leaving a card and a promise
to call again. As the card was handed to
Mrs. , she said: 'John what did
you say to the lady?' 'I told her you
were not at home.' 'Well, John, I hope
you did not laugh?' 'Oh no, iim'mu,' said
John, I never laugh when I tell a lie.'
A Female in Bkeeches. Yesterday
afternoon, a female, who, for months past,
has been attending tho theatres, dining at
first class hotels, and circulating generally
through the city, under the garb of a gen
tleman of wealth and fashion, assuming
different names as occasion required, was
arrested as a vagrant, on the complaint of

TII2 SUMJGBE IS PAST.
In commenting upon the eventful Hum
mer from which we have just emerged,
the New York Mirror Rnyn:
Another summer has past and linrd and
hot it has been. Fires, failures, disease
and death, have brought mourning and loss
es to hundreds of thousands; and the ca
lamity of short crops, makes the poor man
look anxiously to the coming Wi-iter. In
our city, men who ranked as miHionaries,
when the summer opened, have seen their
riches suddenly take wings and fly away;
arid some, by dishonest efforts, to retain or
increase their reputed wealth, have "'reck
ed their honor and sunk to rise no more.
Many of our citizens who bcrran the
season in the fullness of health and beau
ty, have perished with the early flowers,
and thousands who went abroad, decked
in g.;y colors ot joy nud hope, rre now
I robed in tho attire of grief and inourninz.
Autumn has come (o many a heart even
in the spring time of life; and tho earth
has become to thousands of its pilgrims
literally, 'the valley and shadow of death.'
They who have passed through this try
ing season unscathed by sickness and mis
fortune, whom the Death Angel has not
even brushed with his wing, should make
their lives a hymn of thanksgiving to the
Infinite God who has dealt with them so
gently and so graciously. Instead ct
looking o.i the dark side of tho future,
they should look up in grateful confidence
lo the Reaper, whose sickle has felt them
to flourish a little longer in the field of
Time, while thousands as full of health
and promise as they, have been cut down
and withered in an hour.

deem such a collection possible? Does
n't it beat hollow the wonders of the Tow
er of London, the feats of Gabriel Ravel,
whig nominations, and the new m.istodom
discovered by Professor Morse, at I'ougli
keepsie? Ou the 5.h of October the ba
bies were displayed for the prizes at
Springfield, Ohio. Mrs. Ronney, of Vi
enna, Ohio, took the first prize a tea sett,
valued at $300. Mrs. McDoDsnell, of
Cincinnati, the second prize a tea sett
worth rj 200 and the third premium wa
taken by Mrs. Arthur of Philadelphia
$2o0. The handsomest child under one
year of age, took a Parian marble group
it was given to the daughter of Mrs.
Howe, of Cincinnati. One singular fact
connected with this exhibition, was that
all the noise in the collection, proceeded
from the femah children, which we think
is a slander. Most of the young ones
made the most astounding efforts to swal
low themselves, commencing at their fists
Fortunately t one of them succeeded. The
successful competitors were escorted from
the grounds by thu Diaper Band, the in
Htruments consisting of guin rings and
willow rattle boxes. Numerous letters
were read one from Fanny Fern and
the greatest good feeling prevailed.
Monet i Dead Letters. A cor
respondent of the Baltimore Sun, writes
from Washington, under date of October
3, says, that
The operations of the Finance Bureau,
of the General Post-Office Department
for the current year disclose the fact of a
rapid increase in the business and import
ance of tho dead letter office. In the first
quarter of ISM, the number of dead let
ters found by the openers, which contain

and $1 1,713. In the third quarter, end

ters reached 2,323, containing 14,401.
Tho second quarter 2,427 letters, and
t 14.323 in money. We have from the
third quarter ending Sept. 30. h last
2 331 letters, in which were found .f 14,
