I walked once more In the meadows,
Where my feet In chflhood strayed ;
I sit agnln in the shadows,
Where my youth's companions played;
The trees ill accustomed places,
Like familiar forms appear,
Hut the once familiar fares
Ar not here they are not here,
The brook glides through the grasses,
Where It ran long years before, '
And the song it sines as It passes, i
1 Is the song it murmured of yore ;
From lha willow that is nearest,
Sings a well remembered bird ;
But the voices that arc dourest,
Are not heard they are not heard.

With the light of early days,
And htr robes beauty arc flowing,
Along all her flowery ways ;
But nlasl for nil the swct es,'

the moonlight fell with a faint twilight

were soon bigns and portents of a move

cloud wen) pent in the boem of the mouij

round the edges of the crater, irrew nnd

raging 111 wild bursts and wrathful gusts,
coursing after tho smoke, ami muking the
heavens lurid with that strange, fearful
glare which the soul associates with fire
und doom. The roar within deepened,
and the fire grew fiercer every :ioment,
the smoke blacker and thicker, and then
there was n bound as of a mighty wind,
the sweeping of a tornado, and fonh from
the muuiiluiii's depths ihere surged floods
of flame and storms of fiery balls, which
shot meieoMiku into the air, and then felt
and rolled around us with all the force of

the volcano would send up its eruptions of

grand and terrible features of the stone

effect. Ever a? the mountain worked, the

from its outlet, and running in burning

The JC. Y. ''iiMi.t learns of a movement
of the Mexican (iovcrnuicnt to promolo
emigration to that country, which may
hereafter bo attended with impoilunt ro
suits both to that section and to our own.
A grant has been Hindu for the establish
ment of u line of vteuiners between .New
Ui Ivans nud Vera Cruz, with compensa
tion fur carrying the mails, and witli an
eijuivolent for the passuge money of emi
grants in an allowance of duties upon ear-
goes of goods that may bo imported. The
Mexican Govcrmuunt offers to each emi
grant a free passage in these steamers,
with twenty five acres of luud and a lot in
what is designed tu be a central villngd of
each colony that may be thus established.
The emigrant is allowed throe yeurs to re
fund the pussage money; if it is not paid
ut the end of thut time, the emigrant en
gages to pay live per cent annual interest
upon it, and the government lakes a mort
gage upon the land which he has received,
. Iho oiler is open to emigrants of all
classes; but those who are expected lo avail
themselves of it most largely uro iho bet'
tor classes otfrte blink and mulattoes in
the southern states. liy going to Mexico,
they can still haw the udvuutuges of the
Mue climate as that to which they have
been ticcusloijied, while they will1 escape
from the bevrre and uncomfortable mir
vrithtnee to which tle existence of slavery
at homo utj6cUi them, .
. The south has for a long lime been very
desirous of finding some way of disposing
of the free blacks in that sertiort, who are
snl l to be very little use' at home, while
they are taipposcd to oiler a constant in
citement to discontentment among the
slaves. It is not impossible that a coloni
zation of the kind proposed, if eainesily
and permanently favored by the Mextca-i
government, may be of essential service to
the south in connection with this question.

Siimk Don. A gentleman left Holyoke
011 Friday nfternonn for this city, in a bug
gy, taking a favorite dog with him. As
they progressed toward Willianiselt, the
geullemau nmuved himself by plaguing
the dog, till he had got the animal in n
complete worry. Presently the gentle
man' hat blew off, und he went buck af
ter it, leaving his lioiso nnd buggy stand
ing in the mud; then (he dog took advan
tage of his master's absence to jump into
the buggy and start the animal, who mu
ted guily toward ihe river, followed by the
gentleman, yelling "whoa" to no purpose.
His faithful dog now look u position upon
the sent, where ho could keep an cyo on
the master and another on the steed, to
see fair pluy in the race. They approach
ed the Connecticut river, into which iho
waggish brute drove, and, keeping his
seat, floated out behind the horso, who
swam, after getting beyond his depth.
They were seen, at this juncture, by per
sons on the south shore, who put off in a
boat nnd got them safely to Innd- the dojf
in hiith glee nt his successful experiment
in driving and then went buck after their
owner, who will no doubt lenvo that dog
behind the next time he goes to ride. The
best of this story Is its truths Spi ingicW
A Maw or BcsiNr. In ono of the
western counties of New Yolk, is a man
by the name of Zndock Pratt, one
of the bono and siuow, nn intelligent
mechanic and farmer, who ha contribu
ted greatly to tho general prosperity, as
well as to his individual wealth. In a
speech at an Agricultural Fair, in Greeno
county, New York, ho said thot since ho
had been engaged in farming, ho had cm
ployed over fifteen thousand years of oth
er men s labor; had employed over thirty
thousand men, and paid them for their la
bor over two millions five hundred thou
sand dollars. Ho had cleared over tea
thousand acres of land, and used over two
hundred thousand cords of hemlock Lark,
and paid over half a milliun of dollars for
it. He had used and worn out five hun
dred horse nnd 0110 thousand yoke of ox
en, used two hundred thousand Luuhels of
oats, one hundred and twenty thousand
tons of hay, thirty thousand barrels of beef
and pork, nearly one hundred thousand
barrels of flour, and potatoes without num
ber or measure. He had lannedover ono
million two hundred and fifty thousand
sides of leather; his usual disbursement is
over five thousand dollars per duy, and ho
has used iu his business, over ten millions.
He has never had a side of leather stolen,
and Wns never sued on account of his bus
iti"si transactions. We should nay thai
