The Angel and the Wanderer.,
hereee was an Angel hovering over at
great city by night.
It was so dark and the mist so thick,
that the church spires looked like shadowy
figures pointing heavenwards, and the tall
masts of ships along the river, like the
lances and pennons of a hostile armament.
Scarce a footstep echoed along the wet
pavements; scarce a shop threw its broad
ligl t out into the deserted streets. It was
late-the cold wind rushed moaning on its
way, and the rain came heavily-down, blur-
ring the pale light of" the flickering gas-
lamps.
Still the Angel flew on, though the rain
spared not his white wings; for he was a
good angel, and it was his mission towatch
over the hearts of young children; to pro.
tect them from evil thoughts and ang-y im-
pulses; and to bring pleasant dreams to the
slumbers of those who had been good and
truthful and obedient all the day.

small courtyard, at the end of which stood
a large white house with all its windows
lighted-and he paused in his flight, for
he saw a figure crouched up against the
wall, just within the shadow of the arch-
way that opened into the courtyard from
the street.
It was a poor little Italian image-vender,
with his tray of plaster figures laid beside
him. His eyes were closed, his black hair
fell in long damp locks over his face, and
the tears with which he had cried him-
self asleep were yet wet on his checks.
One cold hand was sheltered in the breast
of his jacket, and the other had fallen
listlessly on the ground. The angel bent
low and dropped a tear upon the little hand,
it was so wasted!
He was weary, and sleepy, and hungry.
He had not sold one image all that day,
and be was dreaming of his cruel master,
and of the heavy punishment. that awaited
him. But the Angel pressed his lips upon
the pale forehead, and folded his wings
around the shrinking form, and the bad
dreams fled away, and he slept peacefully.
Still he was chilled and weak for need
of bread, and the Angel's heart of mercy
was troubled. He looked up at the great
house; its bright windows were crossed
and recrossed by the shadows of the dan-
cers, and the sounds of music and laughter
were loud within.
'Alas!'F aid the Angel, 'they are too hap-
py to heed me!'
i"Hark! there were footsteps coming
quickly along the street Itwas a wealthy
old citizen hastening home from a card
party. He had lost money at the game,
and he was out of temper with the weath-
er and with himself. The Angel flew out
of the passage and clung to him.
(I Help!' he cried. 'Help for the cold
and hungry.'
"The citizen shuddered and. drew the
collar of his coat closer round his neck.
"'How the wind whistles into one's
ears,' muttered he, and passed by.
"So the Augel flew back, and strove to
warm his little charge by breathing on his,


day's work that makes my eyes weak !'
"But it was the two white wings that
she saw fluttering in her path, only she did
not know it; and even the sacred tears that
he wept down upon her face she mistook
for thin drops borne upon the wind-and

'Sl Il-l e 'n-.sI ii,, i antwaiied"
and still the music and dancing in the great
house went merrily on.
"The sleeper moaned and feebly mur-
mured, 'Mother!'
"He wa;s dreaming-dreamingof his far
off home beside the blue sea. That home
where the shadows of the vine-leaves round
the porch flickered on the floor in the
bright sunshine-where his gentle mother
sat spinning on the t'ireshold, and his lit-
tle brothers played with shells and sea-
weed at her feet, and all the days were
happy.
"Then the Angel flew up to the win-
dows of the great house, and looked in,
and saw a party of merry children dancing
gaily together, and a group of elder per-
sons sitting by, and watching them with
smiles. The chandeliers were shining
overhead; the room rang with young voices;
the floor echoed the quick touches of their
light feet. The Angel clasped his hands
in despair,
"Help, help, before it is too late."
"And he dashed himself against the
window and filled the air with cries.
"Listen to the rain, said an old white-
headed gentleman, who was standing close
by with two or three others. 'Hear how it
beats upo:- tLe pane-."
"Ay, ran to tb'e wind," replied one near
h'm, taking a pinch of snf snufffroma jew-
moo -- m at.ze-g-ti- n voice.--*
Bad weather, my lord, for the shipping."
"And they spoke of it, and noticed it no
more.
"So the Angel went back and took the
outcast in his arms, and pressed him to his
(dviue heart. But the little cheek still
grew colder and colder, and the faint breath
fell more faintly-and an hour went by.
"Then a carriage with bright lamps and
pawing horses drove up and waited before
the archway. Then another and another,
till presently there was a long row of them
waiting in the street. And very soon the
door of the house was opened, and, amid
the blaze of lights and gleaming of many
faces a gentleman and lady with three lit-
tle children appeared upon the steps.
"iBut this time the Angel was silent,
and just as they came forward he unwound
his loving arms from round the boy, and
stood apart.
(Eh what is this?' cried the gentle-
man, starting back as his foot touched the
figure crouching by the wall. 'A boy
asleep?'
"The servant snatched a lamp from the
carriage-more gentlemen came crowding
round-they tried in vain to rouse him as
he lay, The first gentleman stooped down
and heid the light to his face. It was very
white. He took the cold hand in his, andl
it dropped heavily as he released it.
"'Great heaven' cried he, looking
round upon the rest. 'The child is dead!'
'"Then the Angel, weeping and invisible,
spread his white wings, and, with a long,
sad wail, soared up into the night, far from
the archway and the wondering throng
around it. Onward he went, and onward,
till the lights all faded away, and the site
of the great city lay dark and indistinct be-
neath his feet. And presently there was
a sound of rushing wings behind him, and
another Angel, bright and beautiful as the
morning, overtook him, and said:
"'Whence comes my sorrowful brother?'
'I come,' said the Angel, from the
great city. 1 have seen men, in their blind
selfishness, reject the voice of pity, and I
have seen a little child die from cold and
hunger. Therefore am I sorrowful, and,
.the decrees of our Master- are dark before
me.'
"'Dost thou question the justice of
Providence ?'
"'Alas I' replied the Angel, 'I question
i not; but I cannot understand the death
rnd the suffering.'


t "'Look upon me,' said the radiant Stran-
ger; 'look upon me and doubt no more. I
was the soul of that little child !'
"So, hand in hand, and rejoicing to-
gether, they ascended through the mists
and clouds of earth to that far space where
the stars shine night and day."

The First Medallion Portrait.
As the daughter of Dibutades went draped
in her veil to the market-place, she often

and the daily life of father, daughter, and.
lover presented an illustration of Grecian
life and beauty.. The youth was constrained
at length to depart, but ere he went the
vows of betrothal were exchanged between
him and Kora. Their eve of patting was
a sad one. As they sat together by the
lamplight the maiden suddenly rose, and
taking up a piece of pointed charcoal from
the brasier, and bidding the young man
remain still, she traced on the wall the
outline of his fine Grecian profile, as a
memorial when he should be far away.
Dibutades saw the sketch she has made,
and recognized the likeness. Carefully he
'lled the outline with clay, and a complete
medallion was formed. It was the first
portrait in relief Thus a new art was born
into the world, the development of which
brought fortune and fame to the inventor !
The story is, at least, as probable as that of
Saurias discovering the rules of sketching
and contour irom the shadow of his horse.
t was neither the first nor the last time
that Love became a teacher. Might not
thefableof Memou thus find its realization?
it is related that Dibutades, who had fol-
lowed up his medallions with busts, became
so celebrated that many Grecian states
claimed the honor of his birth; and thet

S oDunDz DEATHS-ArEECTINa CASE.-
On Tuesday evening the wife of a man
named John Jones complained of a violent
headache, and requested her husband to
apply cold water to her forehead, and just
as the man was placing a wet cloth on her
head the poor woman expired. The
husband, apparently much affected at the
death of his wife, yesterday morning
expressed himself to his step-son, a lad of
about 14 years of age, as being oppressed
with a feeling akin to suffocation, and
having a great desire to shed tears but being
utterly unable to do so. The lad told his
father that he would go to his employer,
Mr. E. Morgan, Mountain hill, as there
was no one to attend to the two young
children, one of whom is only fourteen
months old, and obtain leave to stay at
home and mind them until his mother was
int.rred. The lad having obtained the
desired liberty, was on his way home, when
he met a young companion, who informed
hint that his father had died during his ab-
sence. 'T'le poor boy rushed home in a
great state of excitement and found the
intelligence too true; his father was acorpse,
having died immediately, vomiting an im-
mense quantity of blood, probably i.
consequence of having burst a blood ve,-
sel.-Quebec Gazette, Dec. 3.
a The Canton (N. Y.) Courier of the
3d says, that on Tuesday, November 22d,
a hunter by the name of Anson Ives, while
hunting for deer in the township of Ed-
wards, came upon two fine bucks with
their horns firmly interlaced, and struig-
gling, as he supposed for the champion-
ship of Doedom. But Mr. Ives, more in-
tent upon venison than sympathizing with
either of the combatants, immediately
fired, and brought down one of them. The
survivor made fearfZ'l bounds in his una-
vailing attempts to free himself fr .m his
dead companion, but a loose charge from
I r. Ives' rifle soon brought him to the
ground. From the appearance, Mr. Ives
judged they must have had their horns
locked one or more days; and, so firmly
were they locked together that Mr. Ives
and his companion (who came up about
this time) were unable to separate them
without cutting off their heads. They
were very fine deer, and their saddles sold
for nine dollars,


Clippings.
Women have surely no business to talk,
or fib, or swear, or drink, for they make us
men do all four of those ugly things more
than enough for ourselves and them.
All men come into th world a'one, all
leave it alone; king and priest, warrior and

into empty wells, and fritter away their
age in trying to draw them up again.
Happiness and sorrow are the measures
of our moral life; re willingly record thbe'
moments of glaencss-, and borrow's hours
make their own impress.
It is exceedingly difficult to pronounce
on the character of some men's minds, for
the sufficient reason that they seem to have
no mind at all.
He who gives pleasure, meets with it.-
Kindness is the bond- of friendship, and
the book of love; he who sows not, reaps
not.
We should manage our fortune as we do
our health-enjoy it when good, be pa-
tient when it is bad, and never apply vio-
lent remedies except in an extieme neces-
sity.
It is often better to have a great deal of
harm happen to one; a great deal may
arouse you to remove what a little will only
accustom you to endure.
A generous, virtuous man lives not to
the world, but to his own conscience; he,
as the planets above, steers a cou"e con-
trary to that of the world.
True felicity is, wLno any one is co ham-

endeavors to exert himself according as
that prompts him.
It is undeniable, that, in America, it
takes three to make a pau-he, she, and a
hired girl. If Adam h..d been a modern,
there would have been a hired girl in Para-
dise to look after little Abel and "raise
Cain."
Some persons tell us of the impurity of
the milk, and others of the impu.ity of the
spirits. So what is a thirsty soul, intent
on purity, to do?
The solemn duties are generally the most
readily undertaken. How many a man
would with pleasure be your second in a
duel, or stand godfather to your child, yet
would strongly object to the lopn of a five
dollar bill.
We should educate the whole man-the.
body, the head, and the heart, the body to-
act. the head to think, and the heart to feet.

To Young Men.
In a lecture to young men, recently dc-
livered at Mobile, by the Rev. Dr. Lord,,
we find the following suggestive passages:-
Dare the young husband at the altar
of the Most High God, swear to cherish
and protect, until death shall break the
golden chain, the fair aud timnid -girl- who-
-,.. ~ I h;s side, who forsakes for him
i... i .: :,. care and the mother's tender-
ness, and then go away to the paths of sin,
and brutalize himself, until dead? Dare he
bring dishonor upon the wife of his bosom,
and leavein miseryand want whathe found
in beauty and happiness?
Dare he substitute a drivelling drunkard
for the promising youth, who, in the glory
of his manhood, vowed before: heaven and
in the presence of angels and men, to be to
her in the place of---nay, more-all kind,
red and friends? Dare he leave to his in-
nocent children the inheritance of an evil
name, the corrupting influence of an evil
example, and worse than all, the constitt.-
tional taints, profligacy and intemperance,
the fearful law by which the Supreme
Judge visits the iniquities of tihe father
upon the children?"
MocLIEmt was asked the reason why in
certain countries a king may assume the
crown at fourteen years of age, and cannot
marry before eighteen. "It is," said Mo-
liere, "because it is more difficult to ruie P.
wife than a kingdom."

(dividing the waters of the St. John's,
from that which falls into the Matanzas
and North river,) when it has attained the
height of 80 feet above the river. From
this point, towards St. Augustine, there is
a cut of half a mile through the ridge, in
the deepest place only four feet, when the
grade commences to descend, falling in
six and a half miles 24 feet, to the eastern
depot on the western limits of the Cit1.
AF Vas intended, the broad ditches on
either side of the embankment of the Rail-
road, with an average descent of about
three and a half feet to the mile, has com-
pletely drained the pine flats through
which a portion of the road passes, thor-
oughly reclaiming for agricultural purposes,
an extensive tract of "pine level," situated
on the western slope of the road, and of
superiorsoil, but heretofore to wet to culti-
vate without an extensive and costly sys-
tem of drainage, and which could never
have been profitably accomplished by indi-
vidual enterprise. Thousands of acres of
land among the most valuable in the State,
with a substratum of clay and marl, and
the richest and most inexaustable soil,
pleasantly situated on, or within short dis-
tance of the Rail-road, mid-way between

reached in less than an hour, have been
reclaimed by this improvement, and other-
wise, would have been valuless for years to
come except for grazing. There is now no
doubt, but these lands will soon be settled
and in profitable cultivation.
We have more and better inducements
for agriculture, than any other State can
name. A better climate, for every month
in the year cannot be found. A Southern
latitude as some suppose, is not necessarily
a sickly one. St. Augustine and vicinity
has become celebrated for restoring tone to
the system in Pulmanary, Bronchial and
other serious complaints, and persons from
every portion of the United States, the
Canad'as, the Brittish provinces, and Eu-
rope, resort here during the, winter season
to avoid the severity of the Northern frosts
anf bl -enjoy the mildness of our Southern
breezes. There is no month in the year
that St. John's County is not as healthy as
ay worsion of the United States, and we
verily believe there is no State where a
man can procure more valuable rewards for
his industry than Florida, and where the
labor of onue man in agriculture, will pro-
duce more, and yield a larger surplus
above his own necessities. The price of
land is much lower here, than the same
qualities are held in other States. From
what wre have learned, we- havmej. doubt
the lands bordering on our Rail-road will
be spedily occupied; we hope to see also be-
fore long, the old plantations on the Ma-
-tanzas and North river, which were culti-
vated in Provisions, Sugar, and Cotton, be-
fore the Seminole war, but abandoned du-
ring it, re-occupied by an industrious and
thrifty population, and we see no good
reasonwhy they should not be.
Those who are desirous of visiting Flori-
da, can do so now with great facility, and
with but little expense. Commodious and
well appointed Steamers leave Charleston
daily, and Savannah three times a week,
and arrive with great regularity; those run-
ning up the St. John's arriving at Palatka
in 86 hours, touching at Jacksonville,
Mandarin, Flemings, Magnolia, Picolata,
Toqoi, and Orange Mills in the route.
Those wishing to visit St. Augustine or
the coast, leave the Steamers at Tocoior
Picolata. A new Hotel with superior ac-
commodation is now open at Tocoi, and the
Hotel accommodations in St. Augustine
for convenience, comfort, and table, will
compare favorably with any part of the
United States.


Questions of War and Peace
in Europe.


While some great statesmen in the old
world are endeavoring to settle the affairs
of Europe on a permanent and pacific basis,
events are constantly occurring which
throw all such plans into confusion, and
strengthen the hands of those who are
clamorous for war. The present is a fit-
ting time for casting a glance over the po-
litical condition of the leading European
nations.
Many would deny that Spain is entitled
to rank with these; yet, it is certain that
she is now waking up from the sleep of cen-
turies, and preparing to assert and make
good her claim to her ancient place among
the powers of the world. In measures of
internal improvement, in her military and
naval affairs, Spain haq made great advan-
ces within the last few years. Just now
she is at war with the Empire of Morocco,
perhaps for the purpose of putting her sol-
diers at school and training them for on-
terprizes of greater moment. Thisis strong-
ly suspect. .,r .l'f y PFrenl, e rd l h
is, a war .,'.jAin;ig, u the f.r-.,rrn:L,'c
schemes of the French Empertr, by whose
aid it is sustained; apd many believe that he
designs, through the assistance which be is
lending to Spain, and by means of her ex-
pected conquests in Morocco, to bind the
Spaniards more closely to himself, and ul-
timately to add other African territory to
the French possessions in Algeria. Such
is, undoubtedly, the opinion of the English.
The English government and people are
opposed to the invasion of Morocco, pre-
tend to fear for their own stronghold at
Gibraltar, and threaten to set the continent
in flames in case Gibraltar or Malta is
assailed by hostile demonstrations.
Another African question, long debated
and not yet amicably adjusted, between
France and England, relates to the pierc-
ing of the Isthmus of Suez in Egypt, and
the construction of a canal between the
Mediterranean and the Red Sea., thus
connecting the commerce of Southern
Europe with all the richest countries of the
East. France powerfully favors and urges
forward this project, and Great Britain
most earnestly opposes it from fear lest her
possessions in Hindoostan-already mena-
ced by Russia-be thereby further endan-
gered. Meantime, an English force has
seized upon the small and barren, but im-
portant island of Perim, situated in the
l-l-- raht arro en catrance into
the Arabian Gulf, and thus commasrdilg
the entire transit through those waters to
India; and strong fortifications have been
erected at this point. This forms a second
question of magnitude, with regard to
which the French and English are at va-
riance.
A third source of dispute is formed in
connexion with the unsettled and unquiet
state of the Italian Peninsula. Sardinia,
by the prompt and powerful aid of France,
conquered in the short and bloody war
with Austria; and the freedom of Lombar-
dy from Austrian oppression and its an-
nexation to Sardinia were among the hap-
py results. Other countries of Italy, and
among them the inhabitants of Romagua
composing one third part of the Roman
States, have formally expressed their desire
to join themselves to the kingdom of Sar-
dinia and share in the benefits of a liberal
and constitutional government. The course
insisted upon by the English Government,
as a necessary preliminary to any just and
complete settlement of Italian affairs, is,
that the people shall be allowed to act and
to decide for themselves, choosing heir
form of government and their rulers. To
this principle, it is believed that the
French Emperor is not opposed, since his
own authority is founded on the vote of the
French people. But many of his followers
and partizans in France and elsewhere are
the advocates of despotic power-without
regard to any sanction from the popular
will;- some of these men believe in a "pa-
ternal" government, that is, one clothed
with absolute, irresponsible, authority, and
ruling by alleged "divine right;" and for
fear of alienating the votaries of Absolut-
ism in Church and State, the Emperor
seems unable to pursue a plain and straight
path in composing Italian strife and set-
tling the affairs of the entire Peninsula up-
on a peaceful and equitable foundation. The
Congress of the great European nations ie
at hand; let us hope that, by the blessing
of the Almighty, it shall be enabled to pro-
mote and to establish peace and concord,
and that it will not be permitted to subserve
the designs of ambition, and "let slip the
dogs of war."

Stop My Paper.
Some people seem to think'that a news-
paper is public property, and that it is the
proper medium through which they "have
a right" to vent their private rancor;
others that they have a right tq "require"
the type-setter to put in a paper anything
their fancy desires, because they '"sub-
scribe" for it. Not a few grumble because
in polities the paper is too radical, and
others because it is not partizan enough;
others because the advertisements don't
suit them, &o., &c. To meet these per-
plexities in a proper spirit, is an important
and no easy part of the duty of the con-
duptor of a newspaper.
We are led to make these remarks from
a recent case of "stop my paper." The
course we have pursued has been, and the
course we shall pursue in future will be, in
harmony with our conscientious convic-
tions of duty; our purpose contemplated
an honorable benefit to ourserf, and the
advancement of the interests and prosperi-
ty of our community in all matters, alike
unbiased and unawed by unfriendly To-
mnarks. Our press aand type are private
'property, purchased and used for the spe-
cial purpose of providing employment to
obtain a living; to this end we have la-
bored ha-d, performing most of the work
ourself.
Since we commenced the publication of
the Examiner, some unpleasant occur-
ronces have taken place; we, however, had
not been led to expect a contrary result;
thanks to good health, good nature, indus-
try and perseverance, kind and partial
friends, we have survived the circumstan-
tial and negative "patronage" of some, and
the improper and cultivated malice of oth-
ers. Of one thing we are certain; our pa-
per has now a permanent foundation, and
nothing but a neglect of propriety and in-
terest, can prevent its success. We should
however be derilocet in duty, were we not to
render our sincere thanks for the many
contributions we have received; apprecia-
ting, we hope properly, the kindnesses ex-
tended to us, from those we know desire,
and continue to take a lively and positive
interest in making our paper a fit represen-
tative of the intelligence, progress, and
prosperity of our "Ancient City."

The Florida Historical Society.
We are happy to announce to our rea-
ders, that this Society has resolved on
having a course of Lectures in this City
the ensuing winter, as some latitude will be

their subjects, we have no doubt, the course
will be deeply interesting, which, taken in
connexion with the objects of the Society,
will cause them to be well attended. The
society is still in its infancy, and yet, for
the period of its existence, and the means at
its control, it has rescued many interesting
relies and memorials of olden time.
It is understood, the first Lecture will be
delivered on Thursday of next week, by
GEORoE R. FAIRBANKs ESQ., Vice Presi
dent of the Society, who has devoted much
time to the antiquities of this, the oldest
town of the Union, and the author of thi
"History and Antiquities of the City o:

of our citizens and the strangers in this en
terprise.
[WRITTEN rORTnE ST. AUGUSTINu EXAM"INERn.
Moving ceremony in the Catholic
Church of St. Augustine-90 Young
Ladies form themselves into pious
Societies nfnder the tutelage of the
"Infant Jesus," the "Blessed Virgin'
and the "Angel Guardian." -
MR. EDITnO:-Dear Sir; On Sunday
evening last we had the pleasure of wit
nessing the highly interesting ceremony o
forming three societies among the young
Ladies of the Sisters' schools of this City
A procession was formed from the con
vent to the Church, preceded by the sacrei
symbol of our redemption carried betwevei
t two lighted tapers. On arriving at the
r church, two by two they slowly moved u0
the aisle arranging themselves in order be
fore the high altar. All were robed ii
pure white, type of innocence, blue zones
were tied round their waists, while gar
lands of our own Southern flowers, o
which even winter cannot deprive us, en
t circled their youthful brows, from which
also depended long snowy veils flowing ii
graceful folds over the neck and shoulders
The church was completely filled, every
available spot was occupied,' parents an
strangers seemed alike deeply' interested.
We can imagine but by no means de
scribe the feelings of the former what emo
tions ofjoy mustnot that little hand havy
excited in their paternal hearts!
After the benediction of thq blessed
sacrement while the last peal of the orgar
and the last lingering cloud of incense were
wafting their prayers to the throne of tht
Almighty, the Right Rev. Bishop accom
panied by the Rev. Clergy of the church
addressed the fair aspirants in his usual
eloquent manner.


He commenced by expressing the great
pleasure hlie felt in presiding over this cere-
mony, and that he fully concurred in the
joy which such a spectacle gave to God, the
Angels and to their parents; hoe entreated
them to give now in the morning of life the
first thoughts, the first fruits of their rea-
son to God; he explained to them that the
Blessed Virgin in her youth had devoted
herself to him in the temple, and by her
piety and concurrence with his grace, be
came entitled to an honor sighed after by
all the Jewish maidens, namely to become
the mother of the promised redeemer.
Showing to them the advantage of cherish-
ing a tender devotion to this most holy
mother, who had gained for their sex the
title of pious; he exhorted them to implore
her assistance reminding them of the words
of our Saviour on the cross-"mother be-
hold thy son, son behold thy mother"-
that in these words we became children of
Mary and she became our mother. Having
explained the ceremony of blessing the
rosettes he continued-"considering my-
self as the humble minister of God I will
now bless those Rosettes and when you
lo6k at their let them remind you of the
promise which you are now about to make.:
Yes my beloved children think of it in
school, in the streets, in the bosoms of
your families, consider that you now aspire
to become true children of Mary and imita-
tors of her virtues; never do anything which
might tarnish the brilliancy of that preci-
ous jem of innocence, which like the pow-
der on the petal of a flower once brushed
off can never, never be restored--guardit
then as you would the dearest treasure of
your soul; watch over it with a miser's care
for if it is lost all is lost that makes life
valuable. The Right Rev. Bishop then
gave the reasons which induced him to
- give his sanction to those societies, which
we must pass over in silence as this letter
is already too long. The members of the
7 first Society are those who have made their
first communion and who aspire after three
months probation to be enrolled under the
title of the "Children of Mary." The se-
cond are those who have not made their
first communion as yet, their Society is
under the tutelage ofthe "Angel Guardian "
The members of the third being too young
to perform that sacred duty have taken
the Infant Jesus for their model being
old enough to imitate his infantile virtues.
One being chosen from each of the two
last mentioned Societies, read the formula
of consecration in a clear silvery voice,
3,icnjijhJentomuipr i-ti-Jhe numberof
e ninety received their badges at the hands
of the Bishop; many presenting him with
* beautiful bouquets; after the ceremony of
presenting the badges which lasted some
r time all joined in prayer, and if angels
t ever partake in the scenes of this earth and
who would dare deny it? many a saffron
winged messenger hovered over those
kneeling ones to bear their prayers beyond
Y the clouds.
There could not have been many in St.
1 Augustine that did not witness the proces-
t sion on its return to the convent; the
e square in front of the church was complete-
fly wedged with well dressed and respecta-
t ble citizens; many mounted the railing to
- catch a passing glance others vied among
themselves to see them once more as they
Entered the convent gate. We could see
c that there was, a strong inclination to cheer
9 the sacredness of the day alone preventing
s it.
e A word en passant concerning those
generous Sisters who have left their homes
to instruct and lead our daughters in the
Y path of virtue and science; theirs is a
- mission Angels might well be proud of.
f Clothed in the armour of meekness and
g modesty they come to battle with ignor-
Sanece and sin, bravely have they corn-
Smenced the campaign who can refrain from
- comparing the position of the Catholic
d youth o this City as it now exists to that
u of one or two years ago how great and con.
e soling the change..
On then humble laborers in the. vine-
p yard of the Lord generations yet to come
- will bless your arrival in St. Augustine.

[COMMUNICATED.]
Ma. EDITOR: In looking over some old
papers I found this short piece, written
some years ago, and am tempted to send it
to you, thinking that, perhaps, in the ab
sence of mpre worthy matter, you may find
a spare corner for it:
"Ours is an age of progress; it has been
called the age of steam. We drive on at
such a rushing rate over everything in our
way, that no name has been found to apply
so well as this. Our railroads, steamboats,,
and telegraphs have imparted their char-
acter of speed to our people. To use the
words of another, we are born in a hurry,
we live in a hurry, we die in a hurry, and
are buried in a hurry.' We wish to do
so much, and have apparently so little time
to doit in, that wen must drive on, though
in our hurry we drive ourselves into the
grave, and, after all, leave the work half
done. The spirit of "Young America"
is predominanutin this country; that spirit
which, almost before it has. assume the,
clothing of manhood, wishes to assume its
privileges, and almost before it can walk
f must have its hat on one side, its jaunty
cravat, and its cigar in its mouth,. wbich,
by the way, whenever I see it reminds me
of the definition I have somewhere seen, 'a
piece of tobacco rolled up with a calf suck-
ing at one end, and fire coming out at the
other end." An examination of the cen-
sus shows the fact that more than one-half
3 of the white population of the United
I States die under twenty years of age. What
a startling truth does this reveal! That our
habits are such that more than one-half
. of our population die before they reach one-
third of the age allotted-to man-long be-
fore they live out half their days.' We
dry up our brains with tobacco, we burn
- our stomachs with high-seasoned food, we
D go half dressed, and then wonder why our
young men and women are so puny and
sickly, when the wonder is that we are not
all dead before we arrive at years of discere-
tion. Our young men and women are
r forced on in the hot-bed of fashion, and
which, though it may tend to give them a
rapid, yet does not give them a healthy
Growth. Our Country perhaps demands
s the rapid development of the intellectual
powers, yet we should remember that
S"JAes sana in corpoce sano." A sound
w mind in a sound body, is a rule of the high-
est importance one which should be strictly
observed. Again, an examination of the
census shows that while there were 7,200,-
000 (in round numbers) between the ages
of 5 and 20 in this country, only 8,600,-
a 000 attended school, thus leaving one

LoL,A MONTE ON ENGLISH GAL-
LANTRY. This singular woman delivered
a lecture on "John Bull at Home," in New
York city, on Thursday night, to a delighted
audience of about three thousand persons.
Her ideas of English gallantry are thus
reported by the New York Herald:
In domestic and social life she found the
English very admirable and praiseworthy.-
The love of money, however, was great.
The Scotchman would love his bonnie lassie,
because she was bonnie. The Irishman
would love his lass for beauty and accoipl is.-
ments. But John Bull would rather ioieo
her if she had gold in her purse and lands
for her dower. Observation had shown her
everywhere that money inspired affection,
The gentry and nobility of England for the
most part practiced the most refined and the
most wicked arts of gallantry. To-win the
.l..',-.: i.l. .; and artless girl and
1.. I,..c .. i '. wasa matter of boasting
at their clubs. At some watering 'placrthe
villain would begin his campaign. The
poor girl would be flattered by what my
lord would say. She has read in novels of
condescension on the part of the high born
to love such as herself and she expected- to
become a great lady. In this way she
became an easy victim. These things were
the fashionable amusements of the wealthy
in England. In fact it was a common
pastime with them She had seen in New
York papers advertisements for wives,
which she regarded as nets only to catch.
some foolish girl. To see the reign of the
mighty god Cupid in all his greatness and
glory, they should visit a winter watering
place in England, where liver-disease people,
as yellow as their guineas, went to recruit
their health. Here daughters, especially
such as were some-what passe, were
bargained off to the old gouents who had
returned from the Indies with gold and
disease. John Bull at home in England,
and Brother Jonathan at home in New
Fngland, were the same beings, modified bX
local changes.

A TIPLrE MARRIAGE.-On the 21s,
inst., Dr. W. H. Hopson married three
sisters, Misses Zerilda, Margaret and
Denmarias Breshears, daughters of Mr.
Thomas Breshears, of Falmyra, to Messrs.
G. L. Dixon, ...l Pui j,., T.B. Kemper, of
Shelbina, and E. Manner, of Chillicothe, all
under one ceremony. This is what might
be called a wholesale marriage is one;
family.-[Missouri paper.
If you call that marrying by wholesale,
what would call this?
We saw, a week or two ago, walking
down Main street, from the direction of
the "President's Office," a man accompanied
by four ladies. An air of slight perturba-
tion in the party, mingled with evident
expressions of satisfaction and happiness,,
led us to inquire who they were? Some.
one present informed us that they were a
party that had been up to President Young's
office to be married, and that the four ladies
had just been united in indissoluble bonds
to the man accumpanyin .them. That, we
suppose, might be termed marriage in
gross.-Salt Lake Tan.

fleeting earthly existence is a question
beautifully answered by the author of

and forceful moral reflections:
"The present life is sleeping and waking.;
it is 'good-night' on going to bui, id,
'good-morning' on getting up; it is to
wonder what the day will bring; it is sun:
shine and gloominess; it is' rain on the

in the garden and see the flowers and hear
the birds sing;it is to have the postman,
bring letters; it is to have news from the
East, West North and South; it is to read,
old books and new books; it is to see
pictures and hear music; it is to sit in
twilight and mediate; it is to be well and,
sometimes ill; it is to have business to. do,
and to do it; it is to belong to a town, and
to have neighbors, and to be one in a circle'
of acquaintances; it is to- have friends to.
love one; it is to have a sight at dear faces,
and with some men to be kissed daily by the
same loving lipso forty years; and it is to
know themselves thought of many times a
day in many places by children and: gr'apd-
ehijdron, and many friends."

I am now supplying the trade with pure Cog-
nac Brandy, in bottles, both for medical and
private use. Tho immense success that has
crowned my efforts to place a pure Gin within
the reach of all, under the name of Aromatic
Schiedam Schnappe, and to drive out of the
market the pernicious compound sold as Gin.
throughout the country, led many leading drug.
gists, apothecaries and medical men, for some'
years past, to solidit me to pursue he fsi
course in regard to the.article of Brandy. I
should have complied with these requests from
all quarters long ago, but was deterred from it
by the fact, thliat owing to the exorbitant price
of Brandy in France, consequent upon the short-
ness of the grape crop for some years,.there
was no chance of my being able to import the
choicest Brandy. bottle it and sell it at mode-
rate price. Fortunately for me, the grape crop
for the last and previous year (and the prospect
for this) was abundant, and prices of Brandy
have fallen to the standard of ten years ago.-
The duty on Brandy is also seventy per cent
lower, and I have now made arrangements
with four Brandy exporters in France, of the
highest repute, and am regularly receiving con-
signments of the best Cognac Brandy, which I
am bottling and selling as Wolfe's Genuine Co-
gnao Brandy. I guarantee with my seal, label
and certificates, the Brandy so bottled by me,
as the pure, unadulterated article, and it will
be found, when used as a medicine, a beverage,
or a cordial, healthful and invigorating. Ithas
been a matter of universal complaint, that a
bottle of pure, unmixed French Brandy, was
very difficult to obtain, and the purchaser, nine
times in ten, was deceived with a vile manufac-
tured imitation. Of all descriptions of ardent
spirits, Brandy, from its high price, has been
the one artie artic that mixers and sellers hav
turned their attention to, and millions of gal-
lons of the so-called French Brandy have been
scattered annually through the land, and have
been the primary cause of murders, suicides,
cruelties and crimes, and have sent thousands
to an early grave, self-destroyers, from delirium
tremens, mania-a-potu and horrors, names un-
known, until unprincipled men began to make
maddening compounds and sell it as the pure
French Brandy.
The virtues of pure French Brandy need not
be told by me. They are known throughout
the eorld as a medicine or mild stimulant. It
is, as the French nation poetically call it "Eau
de vie," the water of life. But this applies'
to it only when pure and unadulterated. Man-
ufactured with the fearful isrpdien ts that make
a good imitation, it becomes a death drink to
innocent tens of thousands of our race. To
remedy a fearful evil, I have commenced im-
porting Brandy, bottling it, ir, m" .. it as
"Wolfe's Genuine Cognac Z' .,. I am
daily receiving orders from the druggists and
apothecaries in all parts of the Union, to s ll is
for medical purposes.
