The Ptiper's Death Bed;

Exquisitely touching tender, {mpile
and beautiful, is the following poem,* by
Caroline Bowles Southey:
Tread softly; bow the heaa--
tn'reverent silence bo1'-_
No passing bell doth toli,
Yet an immortal soul
Is passig now.

Stranger, t'owever great,
With holy reverence bow-
There's one in that poor shed,
One by that paltry bed,
. < Greaftir than thou.

Beneath that beggar's roof,
Lo Death doth keep his state,
Enter-no crowds attend ;
Enter--no guards defend,
;- T hi' palace gate.

That pavement, damp and cold;'
No smiling courtiers tread;
One silent woman stands,
Lifting with meagre hand, !
A dying head !

:No mingling voices sound-'
An infant wail alone,
-A sob suppressed--again
That short, deep gasp, and then ^
The parting groan ? ,

0 change-O wondrous change I
Burst'are the pris,,n lars ;
This moment there so lw
-So agonized-and now
Beyond the stars !

SFrom,n the London Times,. May 3.
It Iris 1 kkodus to the U. S,
The trish emigration still continues it a
rate which threatens results far beyond
the calculations. f hWo ec0noiiit, per-

It is no longer the overlow of a vessel
full to repletion, but the operating of r&
syphon which drains i & very cotton.
If that syphon m.Ay te regarded in any
visible form, it is" 1146 rai'*la ygstem,
which, in the eyes of every Irishman, ap-
pears to have one common terminus across
the Atlantic. He sees trains of hopefu,,
ii not happy faces, going off to the Land4
of 3iomi~ie, from which friends -and reiA,>
itionis have seni not only invitationsbut
ihe iieins4 of Aceetng them, A train
starts to catehk an emigran, v l"- m7;re=pa-,
Aarly ai"in' Ehgand to catch' a steamer
across'the channel. The emigrant- nhips
hnve no longetrto peep into every little
pork to pick. op their'passensers. They,
assemble al Cork, an] "pass in a continu-
ous stream, if.it may be so called, across
that ocean which, wide as it be, is easier to
an Irishman 1i1:a1 th gul f which divides
him from Englrinn1. At present it cannot
be said that there leaves Ireland a's -nu"ch
as the natural increase, but the cause in
operation are not unlikely to ihake it e6,
ceed that rate. ;-
As the small holdings are thrown into
larger, and 'the farm grows to the English
scale, there must be numbers everywhere
bred to t- e occupation of land, and with
all the ideas.adapted to it, but unable to
get hMhdings lhat require little or no capi-
al. They go across the Atlantic, as a
matter of course. Brothers, uncles and
neighborsh hava gone long before, and send
not only good niews; b-it the substantial
pledge of its truth in the shape of orders
on Irish banks. In Ireland the rIlemark is,
that these are welcome to go. They ire'
the Irish surplus. They constitute the
storehouse of independent enterprise which
Providence would seem to have prepared
through long ages for the peopling of the
New World. But there is a class that are
not bid "God speed" quite sto cheerfully.
Laborers that is, men with strong sinews
and thews, who can do a good day's work
and are content to receive wages. are, as
they always have been, the chief want of
Ireland., The new race of farmers do not
like to see them go. But Who can pick
and choose in human affairs ? There are
good, easy souls, who enter life with this
speculalion, who e:kpect ill everything thp
fruit without the, husk, the meat without
the bone, the sweet without the sour, the
harvst without the tillage. In Ireland

all doors, and brings td thesead 9 ell, a
theit prouder neighbors, letters and remit-
tanesa and good accounts firotm the West-
ern States ; so off they go, leaving the
new tenant farmers to manage its i dll as
they can. if this goes on long, as it is
likely to go on; Ireland will become very
English and the United States very Irish.

The Gulf Stream as a Fertilizing
If 4e follow the Gulf Streamti across the
Ocean, we perceive hotr fully it fulfills' thi
purpose- for which it ta8 Ibsiged. Sir
Walter Sctt tells 8is that the pools in the
Orkneys are nOver frozen, the effect of the
grand hot-water-warning apparatus o! a
far distant shore being sensibly felt eten

owes her splendid gratting land to' the' oft

which strikes full upon h-'e'r 6h,rc8. The
western shores of England are robed-in
bright greeni pastures, nourished with the
warmth and in',.)isture issuing fromn the

, And, in harder to bring the effcts of this
ex'iraordinarty marine phenomena closer
home to the stomach of our reader, we
may perhaps be permitted to ask him, how
it is that of late years hehas purchased
peas, potatoes and broccoli so many weeks
before their season in Covent Garden mar-
ket 1 Peas in May were once thought to
be an extravagance only allowable to a
duke. Now any moderate man may in-
dulge in them to his heart's content.
Well. these vegetables are forced, but in a
hot-house atmosphere of natures own con-
triving, Where the tail of the Bratish
Dolphin dips into the Atlantic, there the
effects of the Gulf Stream are most felt,
it is bathed with the warm moist air,
heated by the far off Gulf cauldron, and
we may say with exactness, that the ma-
jority of our early vegetables sold in the
opei market are forcedd in houses in Corn-
wall and Portugal, the seaboard of the
-most southerly promontory, by means of
a boiler situated beyond the West Indian
Archipelago, the conducting hot water of
which runs for nearly four thousand miles
between the cold walls of the surrounding
ocean, Had the ancietis been aware of
this property of the ocean, it would have

Sir hdwtVrd Bulwer Lytton, in a lecture
recently delivered, gave the-following his-
tory of his literary habits : !
"Many persons seeing me so much en-
gaged in active life. and as ritch about the
world a. if I had never n a student.
have said to me, 'When do you get time
tu write all your books? :How on earth
do you contrive to do so mtch work 7' I
shall surprise you by the answer I make.
The answer is this. I connive to do so
much by never doing too nmich at a time.
A man, to get through work well, must
not overwork himself, or, evtn if he do too
hiuch td-day, the reaction ci fatigue will
come and he will-be obliged Ito do too lit
tie to-m,)rrnw. Now, since I began really

What Makes the Gentleman,
A gentleman Is not merely a person ac-
quainted with certain forms or convention-
alities of life, easy and self-possessed in
society. able to speak, and act, anid mioivie
in the world, without awkwardness, and
free from habits which are vulgar and in
bad taste. A gentleman is something be--
yond this. At the base of all disease and
refinement, and tact and power of pleasing,
is the same spirit which lies at the root of
every Christian virtue. It is the thought-
ful desire of doing in every instance to
others as he would that others should do
unto him. He is constantly thinking, not
indeed how he may give pleasure to oth-
ers for the .mere sense of pleasing, but
how he ban show them respect, how he
may-avoid hurting their" feelings, When
he is in society he scrupulously ascertains
the position dfevery one with whom he is
brbiignt into contact, that he may give to
each hisN de honor;i He studies how he
may avoid touching -ipddi d y submit*
which may call up a disagreabi or offen-
sive association. A gentleman never al-
ludes to; never dapbars consciotis of any
ierson-i defect, oddliy detormitty; infior-
Ity ti taieht, ort ank, ofreputation. ifi thi
pbesoni in whose society he is placed. ile
'never assumes afny superiority--iefoel rid-

garding the party within a look of sullen
dissatisfaction. Tlhey mistook the cause
f his anger, however; for suddenly roll-

middle of the r'o'o'rn, and, in a tone of voice
hat at once secured reairked attention,
said :

,-Yes, you have alllt1 of you haive
hurt my feelings, and I've just thfl' to say
about it: here's every gal in B trboom'

piece, and there's my wife, who I onsider

now, if she don't get as many kisses, the

room, the man that slights her has got me
to fight-that's all I Now go ahead with

If Mrs. B-- was slighted during the
balance of the night we did not know it.
As for ourselves, we know that John had
no fault to find, with us individually for

that the grand jury of Queen Anne's

Washington, May 17.-The ,mbassy,
attended by a military and civic escort'
left the hotei at i.3dA: m in open car-
riages, to visit the President. The Am+
basaadors were arrayed in rich brocade
robes, and their itteidnidns carr the in-
signia of their rank. A dense throng of
spectatoi- filled the istrieet. They were
received in the East room, o f the White
House y title Piresident and Cabimet, Nav-
al Officers, Ailitary anid Staff, Government
Officials, Senators, Congretssman; a com-
mittee from 'New York, ladies, &6.
A series of formalities preceded' the de-
livery of several letters, and the Ambas-
sadors theq addressed the President as
follows: :
His M-jestyi-he Ty Coon, has comsaAan-
ded u*- that .W, respectfultj exprpesS to
his Majesty, the President of, the United

tho Piesident then ':made the following
address, reainfg aii fe* linei afid stopping
for translation to the Ambassadors by the
interpreters. When thus unhdbrstood.
they bowed very low at each sentence .
Give you cordial welcome, as, represen-
tatives of his Imperial Majesty, the Ty
Coon of Japan, to the American Govern-
ment. We are all much gratified that the
first eiiimbassy ivWch your g&eMt Empire
has ever accreitted to any propere` Niokr.
has been sent to the United States. I,
trust that this will be the harbinger of
perpetual peace and friendship between the
two countries. +h6 ratifications yotu are
about to exchange with ne S ecr'etairy of
State, cannot fail to be productive of ben.
efits and blessings to the people of both
Japan and the United States.
I can say for myself, and promise for my
successors, that it shall be carried into ex-
ecution in a faithful and friendly spirit, so
as to secure to the countries all the advan-
tages they may justly expect for the hap-
py auspices under which it has becn nego-
tiated and ratified. ., o -' .
