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. DOVER'S TAHLC Two glances make one look ; Two looks make one sih ; f Four sighs make one valtz: Three waltxes make one palpitation ; Two calls make one attention; Two atteniions one tool. (Sometimes two)j; 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, Attorncv-at-Law ; And when he died, The devil cried, 'O ire us your paw, John Law, Attorney -at-Law.'" The following reference to one de parted Mr Strange of the same prof es ion is, on the contrary, complimentary; jfind we have only to hope that the facts ,of the 'case are as stated, and that the writer was not led away by the obvious opportunity of making a point, to ex iggerate the virtues of tho deceased. Ji looks a little suspicious : "Here lies an honest lawyer, And that's Strange." Brown and Smith were met by an overdressed individual. "Do you know that chap, Smith 1 " said Brown.

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 Technologist. 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, Cambridge, under an examiner whose name was Payn?, ono of the questions was,' Give a definition of happiness." To which a candidate returned the fol lowing laconic answer; ' An exemption from Payne." , d ... i - The Production of Sulphur Discoveries. 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 ever. . 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 extent. These instances furnish marked il lustrations of the many presidential provisions which exit in nature. When thcprogrces of civilization creates new or increased wants, the material is ever at hand to supply them. Technologist. Smith and Urown, running opposite ways round a eofrier,struck each other. "Oh, dear!" says Smith, u how you make my head ring!" " That's a sign its hollow," said Itrown. "Didn't your's ring? " paid Smith. -l No,' said Jrown. " That's a sign its cracked," replied his friend. A Quaker Ysays Hood) makes r pleasure fit his business, and then, fos relaxation, makes a buisncss of hi pleasure.'

' Affairs iu Virginia Richmond. March 17. For some time past there has been a rumor that the present authorities Ln-ojTiec by mil itary appointment- intended to rcMt any movement to dispossess them until their successors were elected by the people, holding that the enabling act declaring the offices .vacant was uncon fvfllut tonal. Lat evening the City Council, appointed, by Gov. Walker, under this act,-elected a new Mayor and choe a new Cliicf and Captains of the Police. To-day, when the ccw Mavorand Chief of Police applied for their respective offices, they were re fused. The ex-Mayor has sworn in a large number Q? special police, and the new Mayor holds the City Hall and all other public Jjuildings, except the sta tion houses, which arc in possession of the old Mayor, who has applied, through his counsel, cs-Gov." Wise, to Gover nor Walker for ..assistance to maintain his authorily. itbr. Walker in reply to the application of Mayor Capoon. says, Mayor Kmison is legally elected under the act of the Legislature, aud he cannot recognize the authority of any one ele as Mayor. He censures Capoon's action, and advises him to obey the laws. Capoon is still, in the station house with about thirty men, but the besieging party have cut oft the gas and supplies of food. Washington, March 15. In the Senate the resolution givins a year's salary as a Justice of the Supreme Court. to Mrs. Stanton, passed.

General James Watson Webb writes the Tri bune a long letter from Havana, on the 5th inst., favoring the accordance of belligerent rights to the Cubans, and saying that if the President and Sec retary Fish had been permitted to know tho whole truth, they would havo been conceded six months ago. He says the Cubans have fifteen or twenty thousand well armed troops, and as many more carry in-g pikes, etc , and that if a hun dred thousand arms could be landed there would be plenty to carry them, and Havana wonld'fall iu a fortnight. He reiterates the stories of Spanish cruelties, which he says surpass belief, and make one's blood cold with indignation. PROFESSIONAL CARDS, tC.
