Tis like a dream that 1 recall
The happy hours we've passed,
Where stands the plant hickory tall,
And nods beneath the'blnst.
When many a day, In weary cleo, .
With basket wo havo strayed ..
To our old farorlte walnut tree, ' '
And "hulled1' beneath Its shade.
Where we were wont to build of moss,
lllrd nests In nil the bowers,
And rob each one we " camo across "
To get " nest-eggs " for ours.
And.whoa.thc moailow, ripening fast,
Its pleasant odors shed,
Where strawberries a rich repast,
Their carmine dainty spread ;
And not the leait affecting scene ,

The mill and cider pres.
Then next, since I bethink to troll,.
Thcro Is a sacred spot,
Where stands the gray, old apple cell,
Within the orchard lot.
'Tis long ngn It scorns an ago,
Since that bright vision fled,
Tho' it hath left on memory's page,
A record often read.
That youth of ours was blest indeed,
II ut 1 was unprepared
To give one-hall Its pleasures heed,
Which we might then have shared.
And now, that cars' dull load I feel,
I ask in wistful tone,
"Whence aro these thoughts which o'er
For happy moments flown !''

Tho worth of friends and home,
Until from both afar 1boy go,

Escape of tlio Adriatic.
The American bnrk Adriatic, which be
came famous from her dlsa.lrous collision
with the French steamer Lyonalsc, in No
vembcr, 183G, and still more nn object of
interest from her Tcccnt seizures by the
French authorities at Marseilles, her confis
cation by the Court ot Admiralty, and her
subsequent escape, Arrived safely at this
port at an early hour yeitcrdsy. We have
had a long Interview with her commander,
Captain Durham, and as the facts connected
with her escape are matters of national li
tcreat, wo proceed to state them us briefly
atSe nature of the subject will allow,
The circumstances attending the collision
with the Lyonatso arc already familiar to
the public. Captain Durham is very pod-
tire that it grew out of no fault on the part

officers of the steamer. The Judgment 0f! "o wanted. Just as she got her provN
confiscation was rendered by the Imperial
Court of Alx, In December last, and as soou
as a copy was served on Captain Durham,
believing that it was impossible, in the exci
ted stats of the public mind In France, to
obtatn justice, he rcjol.'cd to make his cs
cspo if posslblo, and place tba whole mat'
tcr in tho bands of his Government. Of
course he had to resort to stratagem to ac
compllsb hi. purpose. Learning that the'
Adriatic would tiot.be taken possession of ,
until the full extent of loss by the Lyonalsc
could be ascertained, he Improved the inter-
val In devising the mean, of escape. He on -
gaged a caulker and had her caulked all
round for about Ave feet above the water's
e Jgt, under the pretext that she was so open.
when the mlnstrals should act in, she would
.sink right there in tho harbor. Captain D. I
thinks thero was no suspicions from this,
movement, for in tho "noise and confusion"!
of the caulker's operations he and bis assls-j
tant ncre quietly weaving aud running rig
ging on board, and getting ready for sea. ,
They worked at this business about three
hours every night, say from 9 o'clock till
12, when there was much noise and it was so
dark no one could either hear or see what
they wero doing. What provisions they got
were put on board another vessel and from
thence traniferrsd to tho Adriatic during the '
night. The crew was also shipped for anv''... ' "1- . . . . w"''!Jw for eighteen years, and had taken no

the American ship Luna, that hod cleared M
the day before. Nothing more was heard
from the official, and the Adriatic proceeded
on her way,
As soon as the fugitive got clear of tho
harbor, a fine breese sprung up from the
eastward, and at daybreak she was abreast
of Flalnlcr, and three good miles off the
French coast. The Adriutlo then took her
course for Spezzla, in Sardinia, the Captain
expecting to find his ship's papers there, and
also some American man-of-war, who might
Hupply him with an anchor aud such other
articles as he stood in need of. Sho arrived
at Spezzla on the morning of the l'Jth of
January, and anchored with the kedge,
having cut loose both anchors and left them
at the wharf In Marseilles. There was no
man-of-war in port, and her papers had not
arrived. Having no bill of health, the Sar
dinian authorities would not permit her to
Cant. D. then went ashore himself to the
pratique office, where he met the American
Consul, who informed him that intelligence
of his rjicapc bad reached there, and that
the French Government had telegraphed to
all the ports in the Mediterranean to stop
I tho vessel in whatever port tho may be
found. Soon after her arrival orders came
, from Turin to sclxe the vessel, nud the offi
ccrs actually placed a gunboat nndrr her
jstern, wilb two guns mounted, bavlug rc
'eclved orders to flro, should any attempt btj

What is hunger its canso and sQccti A
writer In Jllaektcood't Jtagatine answers
this question in an interesting and Instruc

tion having its seat in the stomach, but
principally caused by the state of the whole
system. It Is therefore rclafcd to therchc-
ral state of tho system, and to the particu!,
lar state of the stomach. Tho primary cause!
is the want of food to repair the waste of

exaggeration are so great
that wo aro tempted to reject almost tvtry
one of these cases rather than reject all
physiological teachings. If the persons
fatting remained perfectly motionless, they
must still breathe, and every breath draws
upon the substance of the body. The ani
mal beat is maintained solely by the com
bustion of the body, and it seems impossi
ble that It should go on consuming itself for
years without repair. The truth is, tbo man
who takes no food, lives like a spendthrift
on his capital. We cannot say precisely bow
long such a spendthrift life may coutlnue
how long starvation will be in cfiectlng its
fatal end, but wo can say bow much watte
is fatal. Experiments prore that death ar
rives whenever the waste reaches an aver
age proportion of four-tenths. That Is to
sny, supposing an animal to weigh one hun
dred pounds, it will succumb when its wilght
Is reduced to sixty pounds. Death tnsy of
course ensue before that point ts reached,
but cannot be prolonged after it. Curiously
enough, insufficiency of food causes death
at precisely the same point, that is, as soon
as the original weight is reduced four-tenths.
Men, therefore, reduced to an insufficient
allowance, whether from famine, shipwreck,
or siege, will Inevitably perish unless the
allowance be Increased, just as If they hud
received no food at all, only they will It
longer beforo they succumb. An important
lesson is contained lu this fact, and one!

Why Coi'i.3 Siioild hoT Mirbt. Iu
tho Annual Report of tbo Superintendent of
the Kentucky Institution for the Deaf and
Dumb we find the following conclusive argu- j
merit against the marriage of cousins :
From ten to twenty per cent, of deaf mutes
are the children of cousins. It is greatly to
be regretted that the bill forbldlng the mar
riage of first cousins did not pass the recent
Legislature. These marriages ore a viola
tion of a law of nature, as is evidenced by
the afflictions visited in almost every cate
upon their offspring, Io deafness, blindness
and idiotcy, and ought to be a violation of
human law also. The common wealth bas
the clear right to protect Itself against these
ill-starred matches, whor offspring It has to
sustain for life. It may be hoped that this
important subject will pot escape the action
of our legislators many years longer. It Is
confidently believed that by forbidding mar
riages of tbts kind, nnd by proper attention
aud care of iofsnts laboring under the dis
eases stated, the uumber of deaf mutts In
the community might be diminished ocuhalf
io a grueration.
