This world would be a happy world,
Would all men think alike j
Would sects and parties throw away
Their bitterness and spite;
Would they but quit their strife of creeds,
And try which could be best,
Didiifle abroad those noble deeds
By which mankind are blest.
This world would be a happy world
Had kings the power no more
To drench this beauteous earth of ours
In pools of human gore ;
Had proud a nihil ion to submit
To arbitration's rule,
And glory's gilded toys be thought
The playthings of a fool.
This world would be a happy world
If men were junter grown,
Not seeking to raise up themselves
By crushing others down ;
Were all content by honest means
To live ami get along,
Tliere'd be an end to fraud and guile,
To villainy and wrong.
This world would be a happy world,
A scene of joy and bliss,
Did generous feeling sway mankind,
Free from all selfishness ;
Were man to man more firmly hound
By sympathy's bright chain,
Oh I then our glorious world would be
A paradise again!
The Turn of lAtv.
Between the years of forty uiul sixty, a
man who has properly regululej himself,
may ho considered ns in tho prime of
life. His matured strength of constitution
renders him ulino.-t impervious to the at
tucli of disease, and experience has givt-n
soundness to his judgment. His mind is
resolute, linn and equal ; all his fuiio
tions are in the highest order; he as
sumes the mastery over business; build
up u competence on the foundation he has
formed iu early manhood, and passes
through a period of life attended by many
gratifications. Having gone a year or
two past sixty, he arrives at a critical pe
riod in the road of existence ; the river of
death llovvs before him, and he remains
at a stand-still. Hut athwart this river is a
viaduct, called "The Turn of Life,"
wliii h, if crossed in safely, leads to the
valley of "old age," round which the river
winds, and then flows beyond without a
boat or causeway to obstruct its passage.
The bridge is constructed of fragile
materials, and it depends upon how it is
trodden whether it bend or break. Gout,
apoplexy, and other lad characters, are
also in the vicinity to wayluy the traveler,
and thrust him from tho pass; but let him
gird up his loins, and provide himself
with a fitting slaff, and he may trudge on
in safety with perfect composure. To

The "Old Oaken Hurkct," was written
by S. H. YYoodworth, while yet lie was n
journeyman printer, working in an ollice
at the coiner of Chnmbers and Chatham
streets. New York. Near by, in Frank
fort street, was a drinking house, kept "by
a innn named Mallory, where Wood
worth and several particular friends used
to resort. One afternoon tho liquor was
super-excellent. Wood worth peeuu d in
spired by it; for, after taking n draught,
he set his glass upon the table, and .smack
ing his lips, declared thiit Mallory's euu
i!k t'c was superior to any that ho had
ever tasted. "No," said Mallory, "you
are mistaken, there was one which, in
both our estimations, far surpassed this in
the way of drinking." "What was thai f"
asked Woodworth. dubiously. "The
hanghts of pure, fresh spring water that
we used to drink in the old oaken buiket
that hung iu the well, ufter our return
from the labors of (he lield on a sultry
day in summer." The tear-drop glisten
ed for a moment in Wood won h's eye.
'True, true," he replied, and shortly al'ier
piitted the place. Ho immediately re
turned to the ollice, gruped a pen, and iu
half an hour the "Old Oaken Bucket,"
one of the most delightful comjHisitions iu
our language, was ready in manuscript to
be embalmed in (ho memories of sue-
Dent Ii or u Notable Man.
Thomas Dovvsn, tanner, of Cambridge,
Mass., died on Tuesday, at the age of
more than eighty years. Mr. Dowse was
a reumrkublo character. Bred to the bu-
sii;en of u tanner, nnd occupied with it
till near the close of his life, he cultivated
a taste for literature and urt, and accom
plished himself iu uu eminent degree in
various branches of polite learning. His
library was, perhaps, tho must miscella
neous one in the vicii.iiy of Boston. In
J'nglish liternturo it ceull boa.-.t all the
finest, as well as the" rarest editions of the
best authors. Its value was not less than
830,000, and may have equalled 810,000.
A few weeks ago, in anticipation of his
death, he conveyed it entire to the Mas
sachusetts Historical Society, whiMi has
decided to appropriate a suite of rooms
exclusively to its reception. His admira
ble collection of paintings iu water colors
has probably been left to some public in
stitution. Mr. Dowse's name was writ
ten, by the irreverent Harvard collegians,
Thomas Dowse, I,L, 1)., which wus he'd
to mean learned leather dresser. Har
vard missed getting his library, which it
was nt one period believed would be ad
ded to its riches in this line. Mr. Dowse
was in all respects a most excellent man,
a good tanner, and n well-read student of
A Woman's Miiile.

I.ienl. Bel lyumn, who was sent out by
the Navy Department, in the ship Arctic,
to ascertain the depth, by sounding, from
Newfoundland to Ireland, with reference
to. the practicability of a submarine tele-
graph, bus submitted his report, together
wilh (ho maps nnd charts, to tho Navy
Department, which will be published in
the reports accompanying tho Secretary's
Annual Ueport. It is very brief und to
the point. He starts out by making
soundings every thirty or forty miles,
varying from one hundred fathoms to two
.i i i . .. . .
minimum nun seventy-live iadioms; no
place beyond the latter figure that being
the deepest point. In almost every sound
ing he brought up various kinds of curi
osities, such as shells of every descrip
tion, gravel, quantities of mud, &c, all of
which have been deposited in tho Smith
On his return he mado tho same ex
ptrimenu of soundings with tho samo
success. Nowhere did he find any ob
structions or imediments in tho way, and
establishes clearly and conclusively, and
biyond the shadow of a doubt, in his
judgment, the practicability and feasibility
of the sub rme telegraph between those
two points. I understand that the whole
thing can be accomplished in ten days af
ter everything is in readiness. During
the month of July, in his judgment, is tho
time it should be done. He further says
that the wires would sink down into soft
muddy bottom, and that nothing could pos
sibly interfere with them. This settles
beyond all question tho practicability of
connecting the two continents by a sub
Ifrlnrirh rieinr's Opinion of

Send a philosopher to London, but for

there, and stand him at the corner of

from u!l the books of the lant Leipsio fair ; ,
and as the billows of human life roar ,
around him, so will a sea of new thoughts,
rise beforo him, and the Eternal Spirit
which moves ujhui the face of the waters
wiil breathe upon him; the most hidden
secrets of social harmony will be sudden
ly revealed to him ; he will hear the pulse
of the world Uut audibly, and see it visi
blyfor, if London is the right hand of
tho world its active, mighty right hand
then we may regard the route which leads
from the Exchange to Downing street as
tho world's pyloric artery. But never
rend a poet to London ! This dowiu iht
earnestness of all things, this colonial
uniformity, this machine-like movement,
this troubled spirit in pleasure itself, thii
exaggerated Luidon, smothers the ima-.
giuatiHi und rends the heart. And should
you ever send a German poet thither a
dreamer, who stares at everything, even
a raggar beggar woman, or the shining
wares of a goldsmith's shop why, then,
