The late Philip , Tucker, when Grand
Master of Vermont, JS"6, said :
When I heard Bro. H. C. Deming read
these lines at the Hartford banquet? I was
not quite sure that his splendid manner and
enunciation had not deceived me as to their
real value. When I saw them in print I
read them fifty times over -.with great care,
studied the thoughts, and became gloriously
satistied that it was not Bro. Deming's tine
reading which had captivated me, but the
sentiments of the beautiful lines themselves.
A few days since, 1 dedicated a.rvevy Lodge
room at Bichmond, Yt., and took it into my
head thatrif, near the close of our ceremo
nies, I were to recite those lines well, it
might have a good effect ; so I ventured to
do it, and I never saw such an effect pro
duced upon an audience by such means.
When I got to the lines,
'Already in tte tveetcrn slrj the signs bid us

the Masons were either pale cr crying ; and
ihose who were not Masons, women and all,
had an expression of intense thought upon
their countenances, snch as I never before
saw upon the faces of men or women. I-
have no idea of offering flattery or incense,

feeling, nothing.withni 'my knowledge equals

meuts with fellow operators oa the State
Telegraph JJie and we have been expect
ing that some great musical genius would
lease the line and give a concert to audi
ences in various cities on the same eve
ning. It may be done yet. The follow
ing is related by the Jacksonville Sentinel:
We were sitting in the telegraph office
a few evenings since chatting with th.e op
erator, 5"hen he suddenly called guf atten
tion to an unusual performance of the in
struments. There' said'he, " is music.
Listen!'' A close -attention to the sounds
disclosed the fact that some musical gen
tleman was imitating Paginini, and the
performance, with a single key and a sin
gle string, was excellent. Here came
Dixie7' tripping and throbbing over the
wire, so correctly that we imagined that
we were in l the land of cotton" listening
to that popular air. Without disclosing
himself, our musical friend responded to
the call for Yankee Doodle," as an anti
dote to rebel music. Here it came, re
minding us of the land of pumpkin pies
ana rosy cneekeu uamseis men a gem
from " Norma" then the erratic genius
" dreamed that he dwelt in marble halls,"
and told us of the pleasant hours in his
"Cottage by the Sea." as plainly and cor
rectly as it could have been done on a
musical instrument. It was a wonderful
performance, and et us to thinkinar how
iitlle the world 'realizes of Morse's grand
discovery. After interrupting himself to
stir the tire, the performer wound up the
evening s entertainment with 'Old Grimes,
and told us he did not live more than a
six months' journey from Yreka. ' :

From the French of Eugene Guizot. ? ' . ;
It was past midnight, and the bride had
already been some time in the nuptial
chamber. When the young spouse suc
ceeded at last in escaping from his friends
and leaving the ball room, he as
cended the stairs, upon one of the landing
places of which a waiting maid met him
and told him to enter.
The new husband rapped lightly upon
the door, and threw himself at the feet of
a woman, who was waiting for him, seated
near the fire, in an elegant night dress,
such as a rich widow might be expected
to wear, wliose desires had been satisfied
by a new marriage.
"Rise, my - friend,'! said she to her
spouse, giving him her vand.
" No, no, madam," replied the young
man, seizing upon the white hand which
he clasped between his own, and carried
to his lij,8. Jq, leave me at your feet,
and do not withdraw your hand, for I
fear lest you may escape me ; I fear that
all this is only an illusion ; it seems to me
that I am the hero of one of those fairy
tales that I used to hear when a child, and
that, at the very moment of being happy,
the malicious fairy is going to fly away to
laugh with her companions at my sorrow
"ie assured, my friend, that yesterday
I was Lord Melville's widow ; and, now,
sir, I am Madam de la Tour, your wife.
Dispel from your imagination your child
hood's fairy. That tale is but a fable."
Fredrick de la Tour had some reason to
suspect that a superior genius interfered
with his affairs, for, Ayithin the last month,
either chance or inexplicable good fortune
had rendered him rich and happy beyond
his desires. His age was 25 ; he was an
orphan and lived upon an employment in
which he was engaged, when passing one
day through the street Saint Ilonore a
splended coach stopped near him, and an
elegantly dressed lady leaned over the
carriage door and called out to him,
though not by name.
The driver descended, let down the foot
board, and hat in hand, respectfully in
vited Mr. Frederick to be seated bv the
side of this woman glittering with jewels.
The coachman then drove on.
" Sir," said the lady who had thus taken
him up ; with a sweet voice. " I have re
ceived your letter, but notwithstanding
your refusal, I yet hope to see you to
morrow at my evening party."
" Me, Madam," replied Frederick.
''Yes, sir, you ah ! I beg your pardon,"
cried the lady, with surprise. " I beg
your pardon, sir. tou so much resemble a
person of my acquaintance that I took you
for him. Ah, sir, excuse What must you
thmk ? Indeed the resemblance is so
;triking that any one in the world would
be deceived as I have been."
Before this explanation was ended, the
carriage stopped in the court of a superb
mansion, and Mr. Frederick could not but
offer his hand to Lady Melville ; he ac
cepted, her invitation and in a few days
became one of her frequent; visitors. The
rljCh "i?id.ow was surrounded by admirers ;
but they dropped off one by one, and
things were so arranged before a week

his tailor. He was forced to the conclu-
sion that he was loved for himself, or else
Lady Melville was fascinated. When the
marriage was settled, when the future
spouse was before the notary, his astonish
ment was redoubled. They declared his
property to be over a minion, lie oyn
ed, according to the contract, a farm in
Normandy, a house in Paris, in the street
Saint Ilonore, and other real estate which
he had never before heard mentioned.
The widow was rich in foreign wealths.
She had farms in Wales and pastures in
All this was to Frederick a golden
dream, and he longed to wake from it.
The mayor and curate came to sanction
the union, but neither the marriage solem

doubts, but he did not leave his wife's
feet, but grasped in his hand the embroid-

" There," said Frederick, so I was pot

"Listen to me. mv friend. There was
once on a time a young gin, uuru ui pa
rents who had formerly been wealthy, but
who, when 15 year3 of age, had to subsist
upon the industry of her father. They
resided in Lyons, but some homes of bet
ter fortune brought them to Faris. Nothing-is

the attic for which the rent vras unpaid.
Its only furniture was two beds. If there
was a fafry in the tale which I ap relating,
this is certainly the moment she. should

young woman remained in Paris, without

the wealth of the poor. Yice, it is true,
stretched its arms to her, but there are
pure souls that can pass vice without
looking at it. er, at least, without suffer
ing themselves to be sullied by its breath.
" Meanwhile life was necessary, thefhun-
ger of the day redoubled at night, and the
misery of a night was added to a second
day passing without food. You rise from
a table groaning under its weight of dain
ties, where wine, too, abounds to satisfac
tion, and although it is since yesterday,
Frederick, that you are rich, you have no
idea of the misery I speak of, and you
wonder that, in the midst of the luxury
that surrounds you, upon this arm chair of
gold and silk, where I am sitting, I can
paint to you such a picture ; but listen to
me further. Hunger led this youn-r cirl
to beg. She covered her head with her
mother's vail, the only heritage she re
ceived ; she inclined her body to imitate
age, and went into the street. There she
held out her hand.

have something else to do in the evening
besides drawing sous from their pockets.
If the begging girl saw an old man pass
ing she ventured to implore him. Age is
often avaricious and hard. The old man
passed. The evening had been wet and
rainy, night was approaching, and the
patrols, the night guards, arid the city serg
eants were about to take possession of the
streets of Paris, when the young girl,
fainting with want, once more held out
her hand. She addressed herself to a
young man "who stopped, felt in his
pocket, and threw her a piece of money,
so much did he fear to touch the wretched
one. A police officer who was apparently

police officer, said :

of my acquaintances."
"But. sir," the executor-, of the law
against beggary, was going on to say.

Southern Oregon Minks. The follow
ing is an extract from a letter dated Grant's
Fass, Jackson county, March 21st, and
published in the Sentinel :
While the excitement is agitating the
public mind, respecting the discoveries
made in this part of Jackson county, I have
concluded to drop you a few lines for pub
lication, which 1 believe to be reliable.
It has long been known that gold existed
on a stream called Jump-olf-Joe, in this
county, and occasionally pockets were
found that paid very well, but nothing to
create any excitement. - Last fall, a Ger
man by the name of II. Y"ines started in
to prospect the creek higher up than any
Avork had been done before ; the result
was, that the farther up he went, the bet
ter he found the pay, till, at last he con
cluded he Avas doing Avell enough, and put
him up a cabin, after doing Avhich be Avent
to Avork on his claim, which proved, as-1
am credibly informed, to be good ounce
diggings. Mr. Wines tried the creek in
several places, Avith the same success. In
a gulch putting into the main creek,' he
Avorked several days with a rocker, Avhich J
paid him about live or six dollars per cay. ';
Other parties are now taking up claims all I
along the creek. Mr. Sexton located, a
claim on the creek, below Mr. Wines claim.
He sank a small hole to prospect it, and
Avashed out, in a pan, one piece that
weighed thirteen dollars, and several dol
lars in fine gold. Another hole, sunk in
another part of the claim, satisfies him that
he has good ounce diggings. Hoav exten
sive the pay region may be, it is impossi
ble to tell, as the creek is several miles
long, and there is so much snow on the
ground that it prevents any great amount
of Avork being doue-at present. The loca
tion of this new milling camp, Avhich has
already received the name of Wines Camp,
is about fifteen miles up the creek from
Avh';re the Oregon road crosses Jump-o'f-Jec,

Tub Ti-'AtATix' Hivkk. Speakh gof the
navigation of the Tualatin rivr, the Ore
con urn of Monday says :
Recent developments indicate that the
navigation of the Tualatin river is not an
enterprise to be derided, but that it will
be at least measurably successful. The
stream has been cleared of drift so that it
is navigable for boats of thirty or forty
tons as far as Hillsboro, on one of its
branches, and to a point within two and a
half miles of Forest Grove on the other.
The north fork, it is said, AvilL be cleared
of drift so that boats can run to Center
ville, some four or five miles above Ilills
boro. It is proposed by those Avho are
engaged in the enterprise to deliver
freight in Portland from any of these
points at six dollars per ton. If this can
be done, and there seems to be no reason
to doubt its practicability, the navigation
of the Tualatin will prove of great advan
tage to the people Avho occupy the good
farming country through which that stream
takes its course. Hitherto they have been
practically cut off from market for half the
A-ear ; but if in the winter season they ean
hereafter ship their produce to Portland
at the rates above mentioned;, they will
find the arrangement highly beneficial to
their interests.- That the stream will afford
navigation for six or eight months during
the year is an established fact.' The en
ergy tna demonstrated this in thed'ace of
"! . -i - rv -i . r t r i i .. j
such great auncuuies is nigniy commend
able. During the summer season hauling
is comparatively easy from the Plains to
Portland : but even then it is difficult
enousrh. Transportation for the winter
months is a creat des'vhratum, since the
occupations of the farmer during the sea
son of good roads are such as to leave him
little time to haul his produce to market.
In tree planting, as in many other
things, the old adage0esi?ia lente, make'
haste slowly, is applicable. We mean aa
to the size of the trees. Young planters,
especially, aim to have blgr fine-looking
trees. They think that-to get full grown
trees quickly they must plant large ones.
It is a great mistake.- An extreme case 0
will illustrate what Ave wisf? to impress
upon our readers. . A friend of ours, with
a Aery commendable- desire to have a
plantation of grown-up trees to adorn a
site for building, incurred great expense
in moving those of full size.' With all the
facilities he could command and the ut-.
most care he could use he s-jccqededdSl
saving the life of one indifferent specimen.
This, Aye say was an extreme case, but we
may be assured that the obstacles here,
met Avith are only in less degrees as we go -
down the scale of size and age. -Those
which are the freest from them are the
smallest and ycungest. Our object must '
be to get them at such a stage of growth
as will give as much size as is consistent
Avith the preservation of the ropts in th?ir
removal and the preservation; of the .nat
ural growth of branches. If roots are de
stroyed in moving there must, be. a cor-,

which, unless done Avith great discretion,''

the tree, while there is nothing gained in,

rootless almost, must be . apparent. We.

is a plea for small trees, which we cannot
do better than to append to these remarks:
" AVe beg a little consideration for ?mall
trees. Go to the open field or to thenur

any good tree say the ,beech, or maple,
tulip, or hemlock..'. Take one or mow of
each, three or four., feet. high, that haVo
branches well forced Oh each side. Save
all the roots and fibres in digging them
up. and in carrying them home don't banr
them to pieces, root and branch, but treat
them with the utmost tenderness. Pre
pare large holes in rich soil, and set them
out, so they will groAV vigorously. Clip
the ends of the branches just a little, butr
do this so as to .preserve the original symmetry-,
.Jsow,. watch these trees from year
to yeor. How healthy they look in every
limb and twig and leaf. How happyjthey
look, shooting out their branches on every
side and dancing- in every breeze. How

Small ps they are, they are perfect in form,
and plainly predict what they aa ill be when

bulk; and brjng them nearerCthe time of
their decay. . s !'J
He Avho setf out large trees is compelled
to top off at least the loAver branches 16
enable the top ones to liA'e. The roots are
so mutilated in digging them up that
nearly all the branches have to be trimmed
up and shortened in order to restore thoi
balance of things. But such a tree, so
marred in root ad branch, is only half a
tree. It is a fragment to Avhich the lost
parts can never be restored. Begin, then,
with small trees. How they enjoy life!
