Beneath whose ga'lant vessel's keel There lies yawing grave. Around whos birk the wlntery winds Like fieni!s of fury rave On, while ye feel is hard to toil ' And labor long hours through, ' Remember it is I arder still To have no work to do. Hoi ye upon whose fervred cheeks The hectic glow is bright ; Whose mental toil wears o it the day And half the weary night; Who hhor for the souls of men, ' Champions of trut and right Although ye feel your toil is hard, Even with his g'orious view, Pemember It Is hirder still To have no work to do. all who labor all who strive Ye wield a lofty power j Do with your might, do with your strength, Fill every go'den hour ; The glorious privilege, to do, Is mail's most noble dower.

Our national air certainly has it origin in the music of the free ryrenees; the first strain are identically thote of the heroic Danza H-puna as it was pliyed to me of brave ol I Bistay. Very truly yours, BUCKINGHAM SMITH. Kossuth informed u that the Hungari ans with him in this country first heard Yankee Double on the Missis-ippi River, when they immedintely recognized it a one of the old national airs of their native laud one played in the Janes of that country and they bewail immediate y to caper and dance as 'hey used to in Hun gary.

Among a thou sand indiw luals, you inijht readily point out Robert F lion, lie was con-picuous f..r his gentlemanly bearing; and freedom from embarrassment ; for hi extreme ac tivity ; his bight somewhat over six feet; his fcl -nder, yet energetic form, and well a con in xiated dress; for his full and cur ly brown hair, carelessly scattered "ver hi forehead and falling round about his n-ck. Ill complexion was fair; hi eyes dark, aid large, and penrating, an I revolving in a cxpicinus orbii of cav ernous depth; his brow was thick, and evinc d rength and determination ; his n was long and prominent ; his mouth and lips were beautifully proportioned giving the impress of eloquent utterance, equally as his eyes displayed, according t phrenology a pictorial talent and the benevolent flections." I'nioii of Rations. The Ion; lookod-for and long prayed for Millennium, has at last burst upon ihe world. Continents so long severed by the upheaving of the ocean, have bean united. The race has been wedded in ootids of universal Brotherhood. Al ready have the President and the Queen, been whi-pering to each other ; while the hearts of both nations pulsate in mutual congratulations. The laying of the Submarine Cable, is doubtless the most 'sublime achievement of the nineteenth century. It is not sim ply wonderful, but it is practical and use ful. It w ill do much good, perhaps the greatest good in working out the great problem of the well being of the race. By its use, man will be brought in close contact with hi fellows; individuals and nations will under.tutid each other better, and hence peace and good-will must be the result. Inten ommunication of thought and sentiment, will assimilate and fuse the jaring elements of earth, and cause man to respect that great principle of right, which will iftiite men in the bonds of uni versal Brotherhood. The nations of the earth, will be able to bit in their own legislative halls, and do business with each other. Parliament will need no longer the services of Lord Nupier, in this country. Congress can di..jwne with Lady" Dallas, as Minis. ; r to her Majesty. The Press will no longer wait with breathless anxiety, for the arrival of the expected Steamer, light ning out-wind steam as well as wind. The pn ctical uses of electricity in con. veyin;' thought, we cannot begin to con ceive. We ore prepared, for almost any. thing. The tyinpathay and contact of mind with mind, either dead or living, through the medium of this subtle fluid, we dure not pronounce an impossibility. Thought so long dormant, in darkness, is diving as well as soaring. The region of the star, the bowels of the earth, the depths of the ocean, and the innneaf ure able range of invisible realities, have all opened up their, heretofore, hidden recess, ses, to this march of mind. Let science go on, let thought be as free, as the breezes of heaven; we fear not its result.

We understood, however, thev were intended for the Muscatine branch of the M. & M. Road. Mr. Farnam arrived in our city on Thurday evening, we preeuiue with the intention of makiuz arrangement for constructing the road west of Iowa City. The greatest neces sity eut for the extenion of hi road, a thn rapidity with which the Lyons road is being pushed ahead renders it oblige tory upon the M. & M. Company, to do something immediately, if they wish not to be distanced by the enterprising men woo now nave the Lyons road utder con tract.

How often do men mistake the love their own epinions for the lov of truth. The Atlantio TtLtoalni continue! to be the all-absorbing topic of converse tion in the community, to the conclusion of matters ordinarily considered of much, but just now, of trifling importance. And surtly not without reason ; the great work m eucccsafully accomplished, is indeed Uf event of the present age, the effect of which upon the present and future fener ations the world over, fails to be conceiv ed by human perception. We beleie it will, not only in form, but fully and firm y unite the two continents, and the nations upon either side of the great deep, in one common brotherhood, and prove the har binger, not alone of good will, but of peace and prosperity. It is the greatest protect man hat set on foot for years, and its complete success mav well cause the hearts of our people to swell with new emotions of joy and pride. Wim, ten years ago, but would have called him an idle dreamer or a spc ulating lunatic, who should have intimat ed the possibility, even, of such an event; and who h Teafter shall pronounce, im possible, any achievement however stu pendous, not directly opposed to fixed and known laws of the universe.

Lawrence Jlmtrican: On Wednesday evening, the 18th, wt bad placed on our table by Col. Osborne full files of St. Louis tapers of the 16th, embracing the Evening News of that date. This is receiving St Louis paper in about fifty hours. They came of course by the Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad. There is now only about twelve hours' staging between this city and Hannibal, making this many hours the quickest route to at. Louis and the Last The travel of this road is already very consid erable, and as each day shortens the die- ance to be staged, we may expect that the main portion of the travel of upper Missouri, Nebraska and Kansas, will d' through this city and over this rrad, dur ing the approaching winter.

Piety and PaoriTS A gentleman who employs a great number of hands in a manufactory in the west of England, in order to encourage) his work people in due attendance at church on a fast-day, told them ta-1 if they went to church they wouiu receive their wages lor that day in the manner as if they had been at work. I'pon which a deputation was appointed to acquaint the employer that if he would pay them for over hours .hey would at tend likewise the Methodist chapel in the evening. The Dalles," a word which occurs so frequently in the news from Oregon, is a name criven to a narrow passage on the Columbia river, some fifty miles above the Cascades, where the stream passes between immense walls of basaltic rock, only three hundred feet asunder. The name, which ia pronounced as if written dolls, tnetns "slab; and was (riven, doubtless, by early French trappers, as descriptive of the remarkable masses of basalt, which are not dissimilar to flag stones set upon end, and cemented to gether. The commerce of Lake Erie this sea son, thus far exceeds that of any previous year, and it is believed that the close of navigation will show an increase of at east one-third in the flour and ifrain re ceipts over those of any former year.
