CO VE OUT TO WALK.
Several weeks ago, a friend of ours who
resides in Oroville, California, lost his wife
after a long and painful illness. She left
three beautiful children to cheer the sad
hearts of those left to mourn her loss. A
few days after her death, a gentleman was
passing hy the house and observed the
youngest girl, a blue-eyed darling of four
summers, standing at the gate and gazing
intently up and down the street. " Whom
are you looking for?" asked the gentleman.
"I'm waiting for mamma," said the child,
with half a sob, "she's gone out to walk. I
wish she'd come back."
Weep not, blue-eyed cherub,
For the unreturning step
Of her who watched thy cradle,
And joy-tears o'er thee wept ;
She has left the earth forever,
And in the starry dome,
She's watching o'er the dear ones
Who cheered her earthly home.
She treads the azure pathway,
In blight Heaven's eternal spring,
'Mid the host of radiant angels
That tueir Father's praises sing,
i . rth ne'er beheld such beauty
Such robes of spotless white,
she walks the streets eternal
lu ladiant realms of light.
The fond eyes are cast downwards
To the home that she has left,
Her prayers are for the dear ones
Of her fond care bereft.
She's praying for her children,
With sorrow stricken down,
On earth their cross they'll carry
In lleav'n they'll wear her crown.
God guard those tender children,
Blessed with an angel's tears;
Throughout life's toils and dangers
May faith subdue their fears.
They'll lind her when their footsteps
On earth shall cease to roam,
At Heaven's gate awaiting
For her children coming home.

Among the incidental but not in
significant results of the ministry of
Gen. Dix to the Tuelcrics, is the ens
lightenuient of the French govern
ment and people upon the vatness
;tnd importance of that great enter
prise the Pacific Railroad, says tiie
Chicago Tribune, and the revolution
it is bound to ellect in the commerce,
of the whole world. In a Fans paper
of June 30, there is an account of the
Sal'a des Confrences of the universal
exposition, at which were represen
tatives from all the different races of
mankind Americans, French, Chw
nese, English and others assembled
for the purpose of listening to a de
tailed history of the Pacific Railroad.
xt the conference a letter was read
from Gen. Dix, in which he refers to
the long time necessary for travelers
or merchandise to reach China from
Paris, a great portion of the time be
mg taken in traveling away from the
direct course. But when the great
Pacific Railroad is completed there
will be, he says, an almost direct line

The United States is destined to
become the great entrepot of trade.
It may be interesting and profitable
to trace the star of commerce as it
gradually took its way Nvestvvard, and
then glance at the probabilities in re
gard to the poir.t where commercial
prosperity will culminate.
The Phoenicians were the first nav
igators of any account of whom we
have any authentic history, and even
their exploits are shrouded in the
mists of tradition. The date of the
origin of commerce cannot be deter
mined, but it must have been prior
to the records of history, for the con
veyauce of merchandise by water is
so much easier than by land that we
may safely conclude that the people
who possessed opportunities of this
kind were not slow in improving
them. Tyre, which so long withstood
the assaults of xlexauder, the great
est burglar of his age, it not of his
race, was the first commercial capital
of the world. When that city fell,
though it was long before commerce
had a metropolis of cosmopolitan di
mensions, Corinth and Athens be
came great commercial cities ; and
on the eastern shore of the sea which
divided Greece from Afia, were some
important cities, but none of them
equaled what Tyre bad been. Fin
ally, the Phoenicians established and
raised to prominence Carthage, on
the south shore of the Mediterranean.
That became a much more import
ant commercial point than Tyre had
been, when it finally fell before the
sword of Rome, a victim not of com
mercial but of imperial rivalry.
Rome, with no water but the muddy
Tiber, was not, nor did it ever be
come, a great commercial centre ;
but the vast power of Carthage, de.
rived from its ships, stood between
the Eternal City and universal em
pire, and therefore the relentless
Romans decreed its utter destruction.
Although Rome was not a commer
cial city, Us imperial sway was emi
nently serviceable to commerce by
suppressing piracy and securing a
unity and fraternity of interest be
tween different people.
The next great city of ships was
Yen ice, which, in its palmy days,
gave to the traffic of the seas greater
wealth and influence than they ever
had before or .since. The period of
its greatest prosperity, from the
eleventh to the sixteenth century,
was the heyday of that cluster of seas
of which the Mediterranean is the
chief. The sceptre has departed from
that old oligarchy of waters and will
From the Bosphorus the star of
commercial empire took its way to
the Gibraltar, and lingered about the
pillars of Hercules until Spain and
Portugal became the two greatest
nations for traffic in the world. In
the Indies and in Africa, especially
the latter, they built up a more ex
tensive trade than had ever been
known before. And when the genius
of Columbus opened up the new
world the area of commerce was j
vastly extended, not only in theory
but in reality. From that time
forth international trade was done
less on the seas and more upon the
ocean. The Atlantic has steadily
increased iu importance as a highway,
until it Jong since became the great
Appian road of the modern world.
Trade has not centered about th?
streets which unite the Mediterranean
with the ocean, but alter tarrying for
a time at the Zuyder Zee, it at length
chose Loudon as its metropolis, j
That supremacy is still maintained.
Paris, Berlin and some other great
cities of Eurone do an immense busi
ness, but London is at a safe distance
in advance of them all.
But while the commerce of the xt
lantic has given the metropolis of the
world to England, the commerce of
the two great oceans, so soon to be
united in the bonds of wedlock by
the Union Pacific Railroad, Nvili give
that supremacy to America. The
confluence of the tid of trade upon
the Pacifi-2 and the Atlantic is des
tined eventually to give to thUcoun-
try the greatest citv on the face of
J to -
the earlh. Where that citv will be
located is not certain. New York
can have no competitor on the At
lantic coast, nor San Francisco on
the Pacific. The former would semi

he claiming that it was, in legal point
of view, a written one. The ballot

Here was the result of leisure.

honesty of his disposition rose upper

his course was chosen. At school he

Shakespeare under his arm.

A western R.R. conductor tells the
following to the Cincinnati Times :
" One day last week,'' said he,
" there came on board the cars, from
one of the up-country stations, a very
pretty, genteel young lady, on her
way to the city. She was alone ; so
I waited upon her to a good seat, and
made her as comfot t--ible as possible.
It was a fjw minutes before the start
ing hour, and she was so agreeable
and so talkative that I Imgertd, and
we had a pleasant chat.
" Afterward, when collecting the
tickets she detained me again an hi
stant, and gave me some finepeacnes,
which she said came from her friend's
orchard in the country ; and really I
began to think that 1 had not had so

Now, we thought of course, that

a gleam of sunshine and the carriage
roll off and our friend John Van
Dusen, the gentlemanly conductor,
would bow adieu, and with a sigh
turn away, and forget the matter, and
stated that as our natural supposition.
"No," said the conductor, "she
did no such thing ; but just as her
foot was on the step, she turned, and
with a sort of look I cannot describe,
You must consider this, fiir,

Jchn drew a long breath.
" Wliv, I thought this rather u:i
civil, to say the least, so I replied
very quickly :
" Certainly not, madam. I was
just about t remark that you must
not feel slighted if unnoticed by me
