Life is a race whcr some succeed,
While others are beginning;
'Tis luck at times, at others speed,
That gives nn early winning;
But if you chance to fall behind,
NeVr slacken your endeavor ;
Just keep this wholesome, truth in mind I
'Tis better late, than never.
If you ran keep ahead 'tis well,
But never trip your neighbor ;
'Tis noble, when you can excel
By honest, patient labor ;
But if you aro outstripped at last,
Press on as bold as ever ;
Remember, though you arc surpassed,
'Tis belter late than never I
Ne'er labor for an Idle boast
ff lctory o'er another;
But, while yon strive your uttermost,
Deal fairly with a brother.
Whate'er your station, do your best,
' And hold your purpose ever;
And If you fail to beat the rest,
'Tis better late than never !
Choose well the path in which you run,
Succeed by noble daring;
Then, though the last, when once 'tis won,
Your crovn is worth the wearing.
Then never fret, if left behind,
Nor slacken your endeavor;
But ever keep this truth in mind
'Tis better late than never.
The army of tin King of Siam contains
a corps which particularly attracts t'ie at
ention of strangers ; this is the battallion
of the King's Guard, composed of women.
This battalion consists of 400 women,
chosen from among the handsomest nnd
most robust girls in the country. They
receive excellent pay, nnd their discipline
is perfect. They are admitted to serve
at the nge of thirteen, nnd are placed in
the nrmy of reserve at twenty-five. From
that period they no longer serve about the
King's person, but are employed to guard
the Royal Palaces and tho Crown lands.
On entering the army they niako a vow
of chastity, from which there is no exemp
tion unless any of them should nttract the
King's attention nnd bo admitted among
his legitimate wives. The King's choice
seldom fails on the mott beautiful, but on
the most skilled in military exercises.
The hope of such a reward animates them
with extraordinary zeal for military in
struction, and Europeans are astonished
at the martial appearance of that battalion
as well ns its skill in manoeuvring and its
The costume these women wear is very
rich. Their full dress is composed of a
whito woollen robe, embroidered with
gold. The cloth is extremely fine, nnd
descends as far as the knee; it is covered
with a light coat of mail and a guilt cuirass,
The arms are free, and the head is cov
ered with a guilt casque. When wearing
this dress on State occasions their only
weapon is a lance, which they handle
with wonderful dexterity. With their
undress they are armed with a musket,
The battalion is composed of four compa
nies, and each company of 100 women,
commanded by a raptain of their sex
Should the captain die, tho company is
drilled du ing three days by the King,
who appoints the most competent to suc
ceed to the command. The battallion has
been commanded for the last five years by
a woman who saved the King's life at a
tiger hunt by her courage and skill. She
possesses great influence at court, and is
much respee'ed by those under her com
mand. She has the same eublihuient
as a member of the royal family, and ten
elephants arc placed at her service.

Those rewinds consist of bracelets, or
other valuable jewelry, to which tho fe
male and their families ntltich great im
portance. Those 60 honored fill the offices
of sergeant and corporal.
Punishment is very rare in this corps,
nnd when it is indicted it consists of a
suspension from service of n period not
exceeding three months. IJut duels are
J much more frequent. They must be
sanctioned, however, by tho female enp
tain, nnd be fought with swords, in pre
sence of the entire company. IVhen
tho death of one of tho parties ensues, tho
deceased receives a magnificent funeral,
and the high priest pronounces a panegy
ric, declaring that tho deceased, by her
valor, has merited cternnl rest in the
abode of tho blessed. Tho survivor re
ceives tho congratulations of her compan
ions : but, as a measure of discipline, she
is sentenced to pass two months, away
from her company, in fasting nnd prayer.
Tho military organization of this battalion
is so perfect that the cntiro nriny endea
vors to imitatq it.
Tho following extract from Passages
of Eastern Travels," will meet with a
ready response from every heart that has
had its dearest feelings nurtured amid the
genial influences of home :
" Them is a fireside in a far oft" land
by vt hich, could I but warm my cold and
weary feet to-night, I would lio down and
sleep such a sleep as God (jiveth his be
loved. Sometimes I think I have not
slept for months ; nnd I have not, bbvc
only that dreamy, restless sleep, that is
fi'led with visions of dear faces looking
on me through impassible bars or out of
unapproachable distances. And at night
as I walked along, tho moonlight fulling
all around me out of that fathomless sky,
I f ilt as if to lie down on the sand would
be b!c:sed, and to bleep there glorious, if
I could but dream once more of home."
Will not this voice from the Orient find
an echo in each heart that ever roamed
from the loved ones at home T A response
from every one who has adjourned as a
stranger in some strange land ? Yes, it
will. Tho sentiment is ono kindred to
the loveliest feelings of the human heart
Camels In Texas.
The Camel experiment on the plains of
the South has been a success. One came
is capable of doing the work of four mules
an doing it quicker and more cheaply. It
would not be surprising if, a few years
hence, we had regular caravans across the
plains in advance of the Pacific Railroad
One part of the experiment is yet unde
cided. The Secretary of War, has not
yet had the pleasure of presenting to the
people a native camel. But he is conn
dent that in a few weeki he will have that
satistaction. It is, perhaps, indiscreet to
! attempt to bo precise in promising the ad
vent of little humpbacked strangers ; but
we can assure the public that tho hopes of
the Department are very high and confi

The surest way to fill a private apart
ment whether in printing office, a cot
