The sun went down on the ocean drear :
'Twas the last sunset of the fourteenth year,
Since first, for bleak Northumbrian snows,
Saint Cuthbert quitted "fair Melrose."
Thro those long years, by night and day,
'The saint had striven to point the way,
So rarely found, more rarely passed,
Whereon the Cross its shadows cast.
' He fled the abbot of Holy Isle,
From the monkish band and the sacred pile;
He fled, with naught but the faith enshrined
I his heaven-taught soul and guileless mind,
Awfy o'er the face of the stormy sea.
Alone at lat with hit O'ol to le !
No footstep gave to the world a trace
Of the path he took to his resting place :
'Twas a lone, lone roek, that reared its cret
From the sea-girt lair of its ocean nest ;
The cliffs rose black on the seaman's view,
Where gleamed the wings of the white sea-mew,
Whose hoarse cry, borue o'er tho surges drear,
Suute on the passing mariuer's car.
The exiled saint no Eden sought
To chain to earth one heaven-b)unl thought;
X charms to win his human eya
From its long, long gaze t&e far-oil sky,
The scanty turf, with toil severe,
He scraped from hollows ; fain to rear
A hut of rudest, simplest form,
To shield him from the wintry str-rra,
Not even a glimpse of that wild waste
The Mint allowed; to high were placed
Window and door, that ne'er by chance
Aught met his eye, save Heaven's expanse.
O, glorious scene and strange! (for him,
He gaxed, and gazed, t'll sight grew dim.)
Iladiijnt, in morning's rosy biusb,
Gorgeous, in sunset's deeper flush,
Jost beautiful at deep midnight.
With thousand stars of shimmering light;
And peaceful moonlight stewing in
Upon the holj manwithin
That humble cell, wb prayed and wept
For the world's sin; while that world slept.
Thus lived the fugitive bis life,
Apart from sin, apart from strife.
He sought to dwell above with God !
Then onee, and for the la.t time, tt -d .
The "Spirit-path to Heaven, and passed
Within the golden gaus at LiH.
Two glances make one look ;
Two looks make one sih ;
Four sighs make one valtz:
Three waltxes make one palpitation ;
Two calls make one attention;
Two atteniions one tool.
Two fools make one flirtation ;
One flirtation makes two bouquets ;
Two bouquets make ono engagement;
One engagement makes one marriage
Sometimes two, and fifteen children.
Go slow grass is short!
Epitapiis. Although somewhat de
ficient in tenderness, the following4, in
memoriam to Mr. John Law, is intro
duced for its spiritual analogy :
"Hero lies John Law,
And when he died,
The devil cried,
'O ire us your paw,
The following reference to one de

opportunity of making a point, to ex

The Amount of Arsenic, Mercury, and
Autimony Produced Yearly
A few iateresting facts in regard to
the production of some of tho less ex
tensively used metals have come to
light at theParis Exposition in 1807.
The yearly production of arsenic wa3
5,20!J centner weight, of which Eng
land produced 2,230, Austria 250,
Prussia 2,150, and Saxony 2S0. Tho
yearly production of mercury was 01,
000 centners, of which California pro
duced 30,000, Spain 22,000, Peru C,
200, Germany and France 2,000, Italy
502. The yearly production of anti
mony was $3,400 centnerf, of which
4,000 were obtained from England, 1
000 from Austria, 1,100 from France,
1,300 from Northern Germany, 200
from Italy, and 170 from Spain. The
centner is equal to 110 pounds, nearly.
'A singular point in the above state
ment is the large amount. of arsenic
that is consnmed "We all-know that
mercury is very largely used in mining
operations, and also for barometers,
themometers, voltaic batteries, and
paints; and '"could easily account
for any moderate consumption of anti
mony, from the fact that it enters
largely into the composition of all type
metal; but arsenic is popularly sup
posed to be a comparatively scarce met
al, best known, in the form of white
arsenic, as a deadly poison. It is, how
ever, very extensively used in the arts,
as it forms a prominent constituent of
many of the finer kinds of paint, und
is also used extensively by glass-mak-ers7
An old gentleman of eighty-four,
having taken to the altar a damsel of
about sixteen, the clergyman said to
him, "The font is at the other end of
of the church." "What do I want
with the font?" said tho old gentleman.
"Oh! I beg your pardon," said the
clerical wit; I thought you had
brought this child to bo christened."
In the course of an examination for
tho degree of P. A. in the Senate House,

The Production of Sulphur
It t een t
In 1838, the short-sighted policy 'of
the King of Naples granted a monop
oly of Sicilian sulphur to a French
mercantile house, the consequence
being that tho price of sulphur tripled
jtj England, and tho manufacturers Jf
sulphuric ' acid! were compelled to look
to other sources for their supplies. In
one year hot less, than fifteen patents
Were granted" for processes which had
for their object the production of sul
phuric acid trora pyrites a compound
of sulphur with iron and some other
metals. At the present time nine
tenths of all the sulphuric acid in
market is manufactured from this minj
eral, and this state of things continues,
although the monopoly has been long
since withdrawn. There can bo no
doubt that Sicily, where the supply is
inexhaustible, would sell ten times the
amount she now does if that mistake
had never been made; and it is a
wholesome lesson to governments and
legislatures not to thwart industries
based upon chemical scienco- a science
which has taught us to produce the'
most gorgeous colors from coal-tar, and
whose votaries cannot be prevented
from producing any given compound so
long as tho elementary substance need
ed may be had in any shape what
Since that time sulphur has been
produced nrtifieially in th'e purification
of coal-gas, which contains tho well
known sulphire of hydroged a gas
easily recognized by its horrible odor.
A few sulphuric acid factories in Eng
land employ sulphur thu obtained;
but the amount which miuht be pro
cured is very large, a i obvious it we
yfake iuto account the tact that coil
contains at lcatt one per cent, of ul
ihur, and that in Loudon, for instance,
where the amount of coal ued yearly
for gas making is 15,000,000 tons, eon
taining 15,000 ton3 of sulphur,' equal
to 30,000 tons, or over 00,000,000
pounds of sulphuric acid.
Blood, of Utrecht; in Holland, ha
invented a process for saying tho sul
phur wasted from the sulphuric acid
during the manufacture of soda from
common salt, and for returning all this
sulphur to the sulphuric acid manufac
tories, which process is in successful
operation in many places in Europe.
lu the meantime new deposits of
sulnhur have been found. Several
have been discovered in Californb.
where, in ono establishment, some tons
are now refined daily. 1 ise most re
cent report is from the Suez Canal,
where, on the shores of the lied Sea,
at the entrance of the Gulf of Suez,
two inexhaustible deposits have been
fouud. One, at Djem?ah, is located in
a perfectly rainless Ufcsert on the Afri
can coast very near the sea, and consists
ofa hill six hundred feet high , com posed
entirely of sulphur. In order to ob
tain the sulphur it Ub lasted like the
rock in a common stone quarry. Two
hundred Arab laborers arc occupied,
under the supervision of French engi
neers, and produce some ten tons of
sulphur a day. A railroad is in course
of construction for the purpose of trans
porting the sulphur rapidly and in large
quantities to the furnaces in which it
is refined, and thence to the coast lobe
shipped. The Viceroy of .-Egypt buys
from the French company all the; sul
phur at eighteen dollars per ton. The
other location is Itangh. five hundred
miles from Suez, and also near the
African continent. In this casc,!aho,
the sulphur appears in the. form of
rocks, much purer than the former, of
a bright lemon-yellow coloK but cover
ed under the earth, so that it must be
obtained by tunnelling. Thijy sulphur
mine has not yet been worked to any
