On the ferry, sailing over
lo the city, lying dim
In the mellow mist of evening
liy the river s further rim ;
On the ferry, gazing outward
lo the ocean, calm and cold :
While the blue bay dips its waters
m tup sunset s fleeting gold.
On the ferry, gazing outward,

Every pulse is beating measure
With th rhythm of thy tide !
Loving wave3 ki.warm and eager ;
Motionless the great ships stand,
While above, each pendulous pennon,
Lures me with a beckoning hand.
Calm on the uneasy waters
Lean the sun6$t"s bars of flame,
Like the legendary ladder
On which angels went and came.
In another summer evening,
On a little way before,
I shall reach another ferry,
Seeking swift a dimmer shore.
I shall cross a wider ferry.
Crossing to return no more,
failing for a fairer city,
V aiting on a lovelier shore.

A Beautiixi,0 Figure. Two painters
were employed to frescoe the walls of a
magnificent cathedral ; both stood on a
rude scaffolding constructed for the pur
pose, some eighty feet from the floor. One
of them was so intent upon his work that
he became wliolly absorbed, and in ad
miration stood off from the picture gazing
on it with delight. Forgetting where he
was, he moved backward slowly, survey
ing critically the work of his pencil, until
he had neared the end of the plank upon
which he stood. At this critical moment
his companion turned suddenly, and, al
most frozen with horror, beheld his immi
nent peril ; another instant and the enthu
siast would be precipitated upon the pave
ment beneath j if he spoke to him it was
certain death ; if he held his peace death
was equally sure. Suddenly he regained
his presence of mind, and seizing a wet
brush flung it against the wall, spattering
the beautiful picture with unsightly
blotches of coloring. The painter flew for
ward and turned upon his friend with
fierce imprecations, but startled at his
ghastly face he listened to the recital of
danger, looked over the dread space be
low, and with tears of gratitude blessed
the hand that saved him. So, said a
preacher, we are sometimes absorbed in
looking upon the pictures of this world,
and in contemplating them step backward,
unconscious of our peril ; when the Al
mighty dashes out the beautiful images,
and we spring forward to lament their
destruction into the outstretched arms of
merer, and are saved !
Fet Rats. I was astonished, on visiting
the houses of some of the inhabitants of
giam, too see a huge rat walking quietly
about the room, and crawling up the
master's legs in a cool, familiar5 manner.
Instead of repulsing it, or evincing any
alarm, he took it up in his arms, and
caressed it ; and then I learned for the first
time and to my utter astonishment, that it
was a custom prevalent in Bankok to keep
pet rats, which are taken very young, and
carefully reared, till they attain a perfectly
monstrgus size from good and plentiful
feeding. These domestic rats are kept ex
pressly to free the house of other vermin
of their own race ; and so ferocious are
they in the onslaughts they make, that few
of the houses are ever annoyed by rats or
mice. Cor. X. Y. Tunes.

the little cares and trifling perplexities

Plain Tails IVith Married Ladies.
If the young girl, who has lately taken
upon herself the responsibilities of wife
hood, finds difficulties in her way, arising
out of newly-formed family relations, she
is also at the same time involved in new
perplexities occasioned by the change in
he social position. This, too, is but
faintly perceived, and hardly understood,
by those who marry young, before they
find themselves entangled in these unfore-
embarassments. All at once, witn
scarce thinking why, the wife finds her
former privileges removed. No longer
can she be the petted, praised, and will
ful girl, fearlessly tasking the forbearance
of her friend3, both old and young, in the
certainty of being lovingly excused. No
more can she listen to the familiar voice
of flattery from her male acquaintances.
No more be the recipient of favors and in
vitations without thought of return. Does
any one say that this change, when it oc
curred to her, was no trial ? Was it no
effort to calm down your effervescing spir
its to the proper" tone of married dignity?
Did it cost you no pang when the gentle
men of your acquaintance took on the air
of saying oh, you belong to your husband
now, we must not express our admiration?
Did you never feel the lack of those pro
fuse attentions from all classes of your
friends which you had previously enjoyed
nor slighted at the falling off of invita
tions nor overcome with anxiety at the
thought of beginning to make some return
for past favors"? In all probability most
of you recollect something of these feel
ings, as they arose upon occasions, during
the first few months of your married life.
Yet I incline to think that they are too
little regarded by most persons, and often
too entirely overlooked by your husbands.
Any man will -ay : I remember to
have been reproached by the half-sad
faces of most brides. I asked myself why
do they look anxious since to be married
is the ambition of all young persons?
When I came to years of thought and ob
servation, I then guessed the truth. The
wife is made to feel too palpably the drop
ping off of her old estate : and not suffi
cient care is taken by any parties to
smooth the path by which the transition is
made. She is wedded, and thenceforth
expected to assume a new life without any
nf that, gradual srrowinc: into it which is
v O C3 :
necessary in order to retain the happiness
of the old, in the cares of the new. No
careful mother now orders her toilet or
watches over Cer health. No fond father
brings her a present or a compliment each
day. No gay brothers, and loving sisters
enter into all her little plans with happy
confidence. She cannot now go on visits,
and stay a season, to be petted and flat
tered. No : she is now a wife and a house
keeper. Instead of going, she must stay
instead of being invited, she must in
vite ; and instead of being provided with
pleasures, she must provide them for
others and the difference is wider than
at first you might think.
All this must be done for the love of
one. He ought to love you well indeed
you ought to ldvc him well indeed, to
make the sacrifice a pleasant one. Do you
say I make too much of what are really
trifles ? I appeal to your own conscious
ness. But, nevertheless, this is all right,
and I only ask for time for a less sudden
exclusion of the young wife from girlish
privileges. It cannot benefit you, perhaps
hut vour daughters after you. Do not
j ,j
put them too early upon their dignity,
But it can be no great thing, you say, to
assume quiet ways, and learn to live much
alone, and get up good dinners lor your
friends, and give parties in return for

company with ease and comfort. If it is
not, you have forgotten some of your own
trials in this department of your social
duties or, you are a very remarkable
rTv.r,r. xWfrtheless these are not the
J Ullil-'-i '
duties, important as seem to be, and are,
to which I desire most to direct your
thoughts in this paper. There is a differ-
f ence too, of worldly position, and of hap
piness in family ties, as well as of many
other circumstances to mate tne cnange
consequent upon marriage, as much a re-
ief to some, as it is a restraint upon otners.

I will suppose then, that any one of my
readers may, if sue cnoost, u

her new position, ui
which I shall sneak. First
of all, as
wife, you are the representative of your
husband's honor and of his social rank.

the power he has to elevate or depress
your condition in life according to his
n-K-n. ia net sufficient to counteract the
V "-7
effect of your qualities of mind and heart
Therefore itobecomes every woman to cul
tivate her moral and intellectual gifts with
a view to enhancing the honor of her hus
band, as well as with a view to retaining
his affections. To be Jpved, is undoubt
edly the greatest demand of your hearts,
and one of the chief avenues to the love
of every creature is pride. Make your
husbands woud of vou, and clinch that
triumph with the charm of amiability, and
you are quite sure of reigning where to
reign would give you the greatest amount
of happiness.
After affection, the first quality a wife
can possess, is discretion. By this I mean,
the tact to always repel or receive the re
gards of other gentlemen in just the proper
proportion. It is certainly a vulgar idea
that a woman may have no male friends
out of the circle of her relations. And
here I wish to remark, that a false notion
with regard to this, not only prevails in
secluded places, but also works a world of
mischief. For instance : a young lady,
who has perhaps been a favorite in society,
is married. Previous to her marriage, she
actually entertained a friendship for sev
eral gentlemen among her acquaintances.
This friendship did not then interfere with
her lov? for her betrothed. To suppose
that after marriage this innocent regard
could not continue without danger to her
fidelity, U to suppose that she is possessed
no real i nor even good sense. Yet
frequently iuio ;nd envious tongues have
made out of thi3 natural and proper inter
course the vilest scandal. It frequently
happens, too, that men in public life, or
extensive business, form a wide circle of
acquaintances among their own sex, which,
for some reason, they wish to preserve
and propitiate. No one can aid him more
in doing this, than an affable and accom
plished wife ; and to suppose that to do so,
she should have to sacrifice any iota of
truth, or modesty, is simply preposterous
and insulting. A lady should know how
to demean herself so as to win the admira
tion, respect, or regard of her husband's
friends, without giving any one any reason
for malicious remark. But it sometimes
happens that a perfectly innocent woman
gives occasion for scandal her fault being
that she ha3 indulged her natural gayety
too much in such places or under such
circumstances as created remark from
those who either did not know her well
enough to understand her, or who had
some sinister motive in misrepresenting
her conduct. It is very importantethat a
married woman should bear in mind the
disagreeable fact, that in this country she
is more subject to inimical observation
than an unmarried lady reversing just
the European rule. Hence, to remember
this from the first, will save her perhaps
fronr the misfortune of being slandered
an event as torturing to her husband as
humiliating to herself. Every woman
ought to have that jealous regard for her
husband's honor, that any word or act
which militated against it, should arouse
her indignation thoroughly, let many
woirfen I fear, who are in themselves
really loyal, have not that force and dig-
nity of character wfiich would make their
indignation felt, where it was needed. A
timid and shrinking disposition prevents
th from doine themselves justice in the
estimation of others. To these I can only
tit ffnrt. tn arnuire the proper
1 .
A bold woman is disagreeable,
but a brave woman is admirable.
It is false idea that a woman's education
is complete when she leaves off her school
books it usually being the case that it is

aiden, and after her marriage, pursue
such a course of reading as shall fit her to
shine in the social circle, as well as to have
the satisfaction of feeling competent to
undertakehe domestic education of chil
dren. There is a great deal of reading
done by our sex, but unfortunately it is
of that kind which gives a loose rein to
the imagination, and has no principles of
knowledge in it except to give one per
haps a use of more copious language than
otherwise they would have. But as ease
of speech, where there is nothing to be
said, i3 but of small moment, acg must con
demn this species of reading almost alto

sciences, roetry auu uieuiyujioo

bility, quickness of apprehension, readi
ness to converse, and willingness to make
one's self agreeable, go far toward recom
mending any one in any position in life.
When coupled with intelligence and merit,
they are nearly irresistible, and certainly
are reckoned among the highest womanly
arms ; enabling one to shine at home or
abroad, and to be loved everywhere. For
the want of these charms, many very ex
cellent women never reach that position in
life which their heads and hearts otherwise
entitle them to.
You may say, "this is all very well
known, and does not need repeating."
One-half, at least, o such a conclusion is
a mistake : for though these truths are
simple enough, and find a familiar response
in your minds, that is because you have
already found them out by experience.
There are, however, hundreds of others
who have not yet reflected upon the na
ture or number of their responsibilities,
and who may be glad to meet with a word
in season. To those especially who have
daughters coming upon the stage of action,
I should say, make haste to inform them
of the life that lies before them, and Ho
not let them begin it as you did, perhaps,
unprepared, and forced to take lessons
from unwelcome experiences.
Besides the duties to society which I
haird mentioned, and which concern your
own advancement chiefly, there is another
set of duties which concern others most.
and which no Christian woman ought ever
to forget. I speak of Charity and Benevo
lence. By charity, I mean the exercisj! of
that spirit of love and forbearance toward
the mistakes and errors of others, and to
ward those of your own sojt in particular,
which cis the highest proof oa truly exalt
ed character. It would be wise in every
one to bear in mind, that it is alioays easier
to find fault than to find remedies. A hasty
judgment, while it betrays a want of kindly
forethought on the part of the critic, often
also lays her under the embarrassment of
seeming to possess a relish for the low de
lights of scaijdal a reputation the least
flattering possible to a woman of any good
ness or spirit. It is always presumption
to assert that you would never have done
so and so : unless indeed it is something
so revolting a to be evidently impossible.
For I am satisfied by long observation,
that the fault for which our sex most
severely condemned, are not those arising
from malicious or evil propensities, so
much as from aetrain of circumstances
quite unforeseen by womer, and which if
understood, would extenuate largely the
error. Therefore if you have never been
similarly tried or tempted or coerced, Te
kram from saying that you know you could
never have been guilty 6T such a thing. I
have seen many cases where a whole coia,
munity was outraged by an error or in
discretion, the actual sin of which was not
equal to the sin committed by the nn
charitableness of utterly condemning a
fellow-creature for her first fault. Wtjman
can not be too pure, nor too careful to
preserve their delicacy from contact with
grossness : but a (voman may more fatally
assoil her soul by bitter scorn and mjusuce,
than by the less ostentatious and silent
.pity she may feel for one who has sinned
and suffered, and been cast out without
mercy. I hold it therefore a Christian
duty to discountenance 'the repetition of
anv unkind rumor, which may injure
another woinan,3tnd to regard more pity
ingly than scornfully that poor wretch
who has been convicted jof sin.

" The other Side.' The Philadelphia
correspondent of the Denver, Bocky 3oun-
tain News, is highly indignant. He says :
" I learn from Governor Evans that the
Union Pacific Railroad from Omaha will,
without, doubt, run up PoleCreek, which
decision, combined with the fact of being
all the way on the north side of the Platte,
will virtually render it of no practicable
value to Colorado travel and traffic. The
delay and danger of crossing the Tlatte,
will virtually defer the use of that route
more than an hundred miles of travel oft)
good roads. Common sense enters not
into the calculation of the Union Pacific
Kailroad Company. They avoid the dic
tatesCdf anything and everything calcula
ted to make the enterprise worthy of what
it should be. The Government pays them
more money than is necessary to build and
equip the road, but they cross the Missouri
river where there is, virtually, so to speak,
no crossing. They avoid the south side of
the rlatte where there is no river from
Plattsmouth toMlhe Rocky Mountains to
cross upon its north side, four terrible
streams either of which drains an area of
country hardly enough to form a respect
able State, and whose dreadful currents
may well at times apall the most capable
engineer, but worst of all they place a
wide, swift and treacherous river between
it and the settled and practical road to
Denver and the mountains. Shaping their
course away from the vast business of
Colorado, which, with its dzen passes, in
vite aOto country on the earth could in-
vite, with the promise of treasures untold,
some great thoroughfare to go. Well let
them go. Too much money has made them
mad. The desolat e " bad land" of Ne
braska and Utah, the valleys of Pole and
Bitter Creek, will echo the steam whistle
through their God forsaken wilderness ;
where rabbits get gray with hard living, Q
and compared to which the Steppes of
Russia are a garden, because grass grows

Lima, South America. The tribune
correspondent, writing ronDLima, says v
Almost every Northern man, in visiting
South America for the first time, will be
most agreeably surprised upon visiting
Lima, which, as a general thing, he regards
as a dead city, with a faint pulsation of
life, perhaps, where Callao, its foreign
populated port, does business with the
sea. He knows, from his map, that Lima
has over one hundred thousand inhabit
ants, and must therefore Jje large ; but his
conception of its vastuess is mostly a col
lection of adobe huts, filled withwCholoe8
and a few dirty soldiers waiting for the
next " revolution." But there never was
a greater mistake. Lima is, in more re
spects than New York, a lovely city.
Most of the houses artP strong, well built
of stone, or sun-dried brick, with walls of
great thickness, and universally yellow in
color not a bad contrast with the dusky
verdure of the surrounding hills, for the
Spaniards understood the harmony of
color, as many a great -painting in these
churches Qwill attest. The terror of an
earthquake is everlasting 31ncP therefore
most of the thick-walled houses are of only
one story. But there is a peculiar charm
in the plan upon which they are built.
This plan consists of a sort of walled in
closure facing the street, with a portal in
the middle, and very generallyQi lovely
gardeuwith a fountain, which has to be
trave9sed before reaching the door of the
collection of apartments in the rear.
Either with or without the garden, this
system of residences is almost universal in
Lima ; and there is no sweeter spot to live.
Even the business houses are very fre
quently arranged in a similar manner.
There are a dozen hotel)which are all
eood : there are twice as many cafes, or
restaurants, which are verv passable. As
pin ew Yk, there are a great many good
looking young men, who dress fashionably,
spend a great deal ot money, and don t ap
pear to do anything for a living ; and also,
sm.ew lork, there are a-great many
pretty womefi)

Southerners in Washixgtox The
Washington correspondent of the Boston 0
Journal speaks of Southerners in Washing
ton, in the following pathetic style :
Although the doors of the Halls of
Congress are hermetically sealed against
Southern Senators and Representatives,
there is a goodly representation of the
once dominant ra'ce here at the metrop
olis. Nearl v all of them are doing a quiet
but profitable business in obtaining the
payment of claims for forage taken by
Sherman's men from loyal (?) people, lo
cated along the " roads over which he
marched to the sea. They wear black
dress coats, of course, and were itnot for,
their swinging gold fob chains and their ;
gold beaded canes they might be taken,
for undertakers, as they move slowly
along, like recruits marching to the tune
of the Dead March in Saul. Deluded-in-dividuals
! They fondly believe that there
is to be a restoration, and they will have
high places in the Capitol with Northern
Democrats kneeling all around them be
seaching office. Instead of which, tho
probabilities are, that if they want posi
tions in years to come, they must politely,
ask Sambo and Cuffee to vote for them.
