How sweet and solemn is the sound,
From yon lonely tower,
That sends it deep-toned music
At twilight's holy hour !
When every sound of day is mute,
And all its vcices still,
And silence walks with velvet feet
O'er valley, town and bill.
When every passion is at rest,
And every tumult fled,
And through the warm and tranquil breast
The charm of peace is spread.
Oh, then how sweet the solemn bell
That toils to evening praj-er 1
While each vibration seems to tell
Thai thou, Oh God, are there.
Music of Solomon's Temple.
The disentombing of the Assyrian
sculptures and the deciphering of As
Syrian and Egyptian inscriptions have
opened new fields of investigation in
almost every department of knowl
edge. Among the branches of sci
ence which have shared in these dis
coveries that of music has been ben
efited largely. The accounts of an
cient musical instruments were
vague, and our ideas, especially of
Hebrew music, were confuscd,till re
cent sculptures and paintings have
been brought to light which delineate
the musical instruments of early Ori
ental nations, and in a number of
cases veritable specimens have been
disentombed. Such, for example, is
an Egyptian harp found in Thebes,
with its strings yet perfect enough to
vibrate again, after a silence of 3,000
years. The more recent investiga
tions prove that the parent of all
known musical science was Assyria.
Erom I he Assyrians, the Hebrews
and the Egyptians, and, indeed, all
Eastirn nations, derived their knowl
edge of music. The unveiled monu
ments show that, in the time of Sen
nacherib, music was a highly cultured
art, and must have existed through
generations. This polished nation
used a harp of 21 strings, the frame
of which was fur feet high, which
accompanied minstrel songs, or was
borne in the dance. The lyre of tor
toise shell, the double pipe, the trum
pet, drum and bell were common.
Evea of the bagpipe, representations
have been discovered, though none of
stringed instruments, like the violin,
played with the bow. In ail delinc-.
ations of social or worshiping assem
blies, musiciil instruments very much
like our modern ones havo a prom
iiicnt place. '
The Hebrew music at the time of
the exodus, was purely Egyptian ; but
it was much modified, subsequently,
by association with Asiatic nations.
In the temple of Jerusalem, nccord
ing to the Talmud, stood a powerful
organ, consisting of a windchest vith
ten holes, containing ten pipes, each
pipe capable of emitting ten different
sounds by means of finger holes, so
that a hundred sounds could be pro
duced by it. It was provided with
two pairs of bellows and ten keys, so
that it could be played with the fin
gers. According to the rabbins, it
could be heard a great distance from
the temple.
Moral Light ix the Family.
Show us a family of intelligent boys
and girls, and wo will show you a
family where newspapers and period
icals arc plenty. Nobody who has
been without these private tutors can
know their educating power for good
or evil. Have you ever thought of
the innumerable topics of discussion
which they suggest at the breakfast
table ; the important public measures
with which, thus early, our children
become acquainted; great philanthrop
ic questions of the day, to which tin
consciously their attention is awak
ened, and the general spirit of intel
ligence which is evoked by these qui
et visitors? Anything that makes
home pleasant, cheerful and chatty,
thins the haunts of vice, and the thons
and and or.e avenues of temptation,
should certainly be regarded, when
we consider its influence on the minds
of the young, as a great moral and
social light.
Foor Old Ireland. Cardinal
Cul'en, iu a recent pastoral address
upon Ireland, says " that her popula
tion has been lessened by millions ;
her trade is bad, and in a short pe
riod 400,0C0 houses have disappear
ed." He continues : " While the
most abject poverty abounds, we
have been obliged to pay to other
countries about 30,000,000, in the
five years ending 1S6G, for the ucces-
saries of life, which formerly were
abundantly supplied by our fruitful
Cox. What is the difference be
tween a barber and a mother '? One
has razors to thrive, and the ether
shavers to rave.
One Crandall, writing from Wash
injrton to a friend at Stockton, states
that he has become interested in a
lately invented machine which on the
rivers of California, that, have golden
sands, will make anybodys fortune
in less than no time, lie says that
it is so constructed that it makes no
difference about the depth of the wa
ter. "Wherever a boat will float it
will work, and where a boat cannot
lie used the machine can be used by
other means, It will take up and
wash dirt or gravel from the bottom
of a stream at the rate of from ten to
twelve cubic yards per minute. The
writer draws the following sketch of
the power of the machine:
Now as there are twentyscven
cubic feet in a cubic yard, and six
pans in each cubic foot, there would
be one hundred and sixtytwo pans
in one cubic yard of dirt. Now.
mnllipiy that by ten (as the machine
will throw ten cubic yards per mhr
ute),andwe have one thousand six
hundred and twenty pans per minute,
which at one cent per pan not very
rich diggings gives us $1G20 per
minute. Do you think that w.ll
pay? We think it will, and are getting
ready to try it. I have no doubt this
sounds fishy to you, and it always
will, until you can see it operate; for
you or any onG else, can never realize
what it will do until yon see it. Such
has been my experience with every
person whom I have taken to see a
small working model. Wc are now
building a full sized machine, and
expect to have it ready to operate
within two months from the present
date. We have already been offered
and refused $150,000 for the right for
the State of California.
The Independent remarks:
Nothing is said about the cost of
operating the machine, and it is tak
en for granted, apparently, that a
cent to the pan can be found any
where. A cent to the pan, is not,
by any means, poor diggings. With
plenty of dirt containing that amount
of gold dust, any industrious miner
can make good wages at the sluice
boxes. But according to Mr. Cran
dall's calculation, one of his machines,
in ten hours, would wash out the
handsome sum ot $972,000! Whew!
Zincotypy. This is the name
given a new discovery in the printing
business which threatens, as a thou
sand other inventions have threatened
before, to revolutionize the "art
preservative." The matter required
to be printed is written out on copy
ing paper, acd a zinc plate having
been carefully polished, the writing
is transferred to its surface. Tnc
zinc is then subjected to a chemical
process, by which the surface, except
where the impression of the writing
appears, is eaten away perpcndieular-
y, not horizontally. This leaves the
ac simile of the written matter stand
ng out-from the face of the plate,
reciselyT as the face of the ordinary-
typo stands up from the solid mass
when ready for printing. The plate
is then ready for printing from, as a
negative, and the original handwrit
ing, with every mark, dot and scratch,
perfect as when the ink first flowed
from the pro unou the naner. is re-
ft 4. A
produced as from an ordinary stereo
type plate, which it resembles in ap
pearance. This process renders the
work of a compositor entirely tin
neccessary, and it is thought that it
will so reduce the price of doing cer
tains kinds cf work as to supercede
the use of movable type altogether.
Even now many of the scientific.
papers use this zinc plate and acid for
the purpose of explaining machinery.
etc. Ihey have only to put the
drawing from the paper on to the
zinc by means of a certain composi
tion, and then put the zinc into an
acid bath, wherein the part not" cov
ered by the composition is reduced.
Dy and by it is not improbable that
any picture or painting, with all its
beauty and all its colors, can be
transferred to the newspaper almost
as cheaply as the same space can nov"?
be covered by type.
A number of women living in the
suburbs and outskirts of Boston have
subscribed money for the purpose of
building a club-house for their own
convenience, in a central part of the
city. It is intended to" be a place of
meeting, where, as directresses of dif
ferent societies, etc., they can hold
conferences, and where occasional
meals can be had in a quiet way.
Getlemen, unless with the consent of
the members, wiil be rigidly exclus

several of the wealthier ladies of the
city. Membership will bo strictly

The Rocky Mountain Gazette, a
very able sheet in everything but its
politics said something like this, in
March last :
One train has already pulled out
for Salt Luke to load back with
peaches, beans and other products of
that country, which are in demand
This rather irritated one of theLat-
ter Day saints who shot bis mouth
off at the Gazette in the following
style :
" We arc perfectly satisfied that
the Montana people should send to.us
for produce when they need it, in
scead of our people hauling it to them,
to be offered at prices that would not
pay for the freight, as in the past.
And, considering the nice, kind nod
fraternal feelings expressed towards
us by our neighbors north, as repre
sented in the Helena Herald, we fan
cy they would not object to taking
our produce for even less, and pay
ing us in scurrilous abuse and foul
mouthed slanders. Yery noble and
right-spirited people they must be
who inhabit that region so remotely
nonh, who in the elevation of self ar
rogated supremacy would recom
mend government to take our lands
and homes from us, and sell them at
the enormous price of a dollar and a
quarter an acre to the first " loyal"
purchaser that fancied a " mormon"
homestead. The higher virtues which
characterised ennobled humanity are
so strikingly illustrated by them,
that we only wonder they would
deign to eat " Mormon peaches,
beans, and other products," unless
government should confiscate them,
and give the high minded and charit
able people of that Territory an op
portnuity to buy them for nothing,
with freight and storage thrown in.
We offered at one time to supply
them with flour at reasonable prices,
that they might not be plundered by
speculators as they said they bad
been. But they treated our sellers
with contumely, and chuckled at
" doing" the " Mormons,'' Now we
would let them come here and buy
what they need, and if our citizens
were sufficiently wise not one pound
of produce would these same buyers
get, without paying a fair rcnuniera
tive price for it."
The Gazette continued the subject,
on receipt of the above, and said ;
