What shall it be? What fong
Wilt win your fancy, dear,
And move your heart to'sing
As mine i-i mov;d to hear? r
Shall it be gay or sad
Bright as the linnets' strain,
Or full of unwashed tears,
That dJiideu lifu -with pain ?
I touch the l:oys and w.vt.
Watching those dreamy eyes,
That hide their thought, as stars
Are hiJ in bluest skies;
N furtive flash betrays.
There is no tell-tale gleam;
H!p me then, dc-ar, to try
And read your waking dream.
Say, shall the song be ripo
With manners of the past,
With rosy blossoms shod,
With sunsLio erercast?
Shall scenes and sounds that were
In pleasant memories strong,
And song give life Bjjaia
- The day j when life was song?
Shall sadder fancies 2nd .
An echo in the tone .
'Till we are moved to. weep i,
. O'er sorrows not our vwii ? -Or
shall hcroio deeds
Move us to fierce delight,
As wben a clarion thrills
Tho pulses of the uight?
Shall laughter bubbUng rie,
Like streams that seaward go,
And, prodigal of life,
Wrestle to overflow ?
Or, 'neath a deeper spell,
Say, shall the musie move,
Stirring the hearts of alt -
Shall it discourse of love ?
Ab ! dreamy eyes that hide
Their burning thoughts so well,
A burning cheek reveals,
A tilcnt lip can tell,
What need to ask the strain
That joulb to youth will bring?
Lve it baa ever sung,
Love it ever will sing.
An Immense Contract.
The most extensive contract ever
awarded in this State was negotiated in
Philadelphia, on Friday last, between
the Central Improvement Company (of
which Philip Collins, hsrj., of this place
and his two brothers, Thomas and Peter
were members), and the Shenandoah
- Valley Railroad from Shepherdstown,
via Charlestown, Front Royal, Lexing
ton, &c., to the Virginia and Tennes
see Railroad, near Salem, a distance of
33 miles. The whole line, which will
' cost nearly 9,000,000, is to be com-
pleted and ready for the cars within
two years, and our word for it there
will be, no failure, either in time or
manner, on the part of a firm composed
pf such men as the Messrs. Collins.
We wish Mr. Hoi lad ay would ope
fate upon the principle above set forth.
But he thinks the profitable way to
build railroads is to commence but nev
er complete one, and always bo in a
great hurry and bustle and employ a
great number of Chinamen abbut the
pitting of every Legislature, -and es
pecially where they only, meet once in
woyearp, ; ; . vX
The following is the seventh and last

V tgubscribc. for jo JUWCAN. S
which passed the House of Represent-
atives at its last session, brought for
ward by Bingham, from the Judiciary
Committee, to regulate the mode of de
termining the ratification to an amend
raent to the Constitution of the United
States, as an argument in favor of
our leader of last week on that iuhjetit.
By this bill, if it should become' a law,'
but under Divine Providence wo ttope
it never may, tho Congress of the Uni
ted States may propose any amend
mcnt to the Constitution it -sees fit,
even to perpetuate itself in power j re
fer it to Legislatures then in session,
who had been elected by the people
without any reference to the proposed
amendment, induce them, through con
siderations of money or promise of fat
offices, to adopt the proposed amend
ment instanter, report it to the Secre
tary of State, who would immediately
promulgate it as a part and parcel of
the fundamental law ot the land, and
if the people should be unanimously
opposed to it, elect their next Legisla
tures upon that issue, and should con
vene them before the requisite number
of States had ratified tho amendment,
still they arc, by the provisions of this
bill, debarred the privilege of undoing
what the former Legislature had been
purchased to do, their will completely
thwarted, and the people compelled to
submit to a law repugnant to their
cherished institutions and which they
hate. If this be Republicanism then
we have misunderstood it. Wve say
that so long as the present system pre
vails, let the pcoplo of each Stato say,
through their Representatives, at any
jime before the requisite q umber is ob
tained, whether or not they want an
amendrocBt to pass. , No harm can re
sult from the latter course, while by the
former the people can be. completely
cheated out of their rights. We here
place ourselves on the record against
the passage of the law.
What journalist or public man in Ore
gon favors it ? but let our proposition of
last week prevail, and then the people
can ru, as they should, and one more
relic of monarchy will have been erad
icated from our institutions.
NEAN. The Grecian Archipelago has
again been disturbed by a volcanic up
heaval, and with terrible results. For
two thousand years, we are told' fearful
convulsions have from time to time
changed the face of nature in that region.
Islands have suddenly risen out of the
depths of the sea, and as suddenly dis
appeared. In the recent earthquake,
the Island of Sintorin, which 'belongs
to the group of the Cyclades, celebrated
in the poets, and which since 18GS has
been consuming with hidden fires, was
riven throughout its whole extent, and
its capital, Thera, reduced to a heap
of ruins, while an adjacent island! was
swallowed up by the Mediterranean.
It does not appear that this latter was
inhabitated,' and we can only lament
that it was not the home of the Greek
brigands.'' ,?f
Santorin is a corruption of St.;Irrne,
the name given to the island in the
third century of the Chris tain era. ' Io
ancient times it sent forth: the colony
that founded the Libyan city of Cyreno.
Its chief production was the vine,
which flourishes best in volcanic coun
tries, and from which the inhabitants
madeone millon gallons of wine annu
ally. The full extent of tho calamity
of last Friday will be known only when
accounts can reach us from Athens. '

A Joke ou the Choir,
Many years ago there was in the East
era nart of Massachusetts, a worthy D
1)., und although he was an eminently be
nevolent man and a good Christainyet
it must be confessed that -he loved a
good joke much better than even 1 the
most inveterate jokers.' t It was, before
church organs, werc niuch in use ; it so
hannened thatthe choir of the church
had recently purchased a double bass
viol; Not far from the church was a
large pasture. and in it a huge tdwn
bull. .One hot Sabbath in the Summer
he got out of the pasture, and Came
bellowing up the street. About the
church there was plenty of untrodden
grass, green and good, and Mr. Bull
stopped to try the quality; perchance
to ascertain if its location had improved
its flavor ; at any rate, tho doctor was
in the midst of his sermon when
'Boo woo woo,' went tlie bull ,
The doctor paused, looked up at the
singing scats, with a grave face, said:
"I would thank the musicians not to
tune their instruments, during service
tliue; it annoys, me very much.''
The people tittered, for they well
knew what the real state of the case
was. " ' ' -
The minister went on again with his
discourse, but he had not proceeded far
beforo another "Boo woo woo" came
from Mr. Bull. ; "' '
The parson paused once more, and
'l have twice already requested the
musicians in the gallery not to tune
their instruments during sermon time
I now particulaly request Mr. Lafevor
that he will not tune his double bass
viol while I am preaching."
This was too much. Mr. Lafevor
jot up, much agitated at the thought
of speaking out in church, and stam
iiicffd out : ,

Wiikhf8 thk AitM.noLEa! A
friend of ours had ordered a pair of pan V
at the tailors, giving the latter to under
Stand that ho was io no hurry for them.
Shortly alter ordering them be found
it necessary to make a trip to the me
tropolis;, and of course wanted the new
pants to wear. Accompanied by a
friend who is somewhat celebrated for
his many practical jokes, he drove up
to the tailor's in his buggy, and as his
friend was about getting out, he request
ed him as a favor to say to the tailor
that he wanted those' pants finished by
a certain day. The friend promised to
attend to the matter, and with a face as
long as that of a horse, he called on the
tailor and informed him that the gen
tleman who had ordered those pants
wanted them right away, aud as he
was going on a hunt he wanted them
cut six inches shorter in the leg, so
they could bo "foxed' at the bottom,
and the cloth thus cut off added to
lengthen the waist. The tailor suppos
ing the order for the ; change in the
' style" to be all right, proceeded to
finish tho enrment in good shape by
the required time. tAtj the appointed
time, the owner of the pants called,
was handed the completed garment,
and unsuspectingly proceeded to get
into them. On getting fairly into them,
he found the waist reached his armpits,
while his . leg was exposed from tho
knee down. Seeing the comical figure
he cut (ho weighs in the neighborhood
of 250 pounds), and at onoe compre
hending the situation, he gave one
quizzical look at the pants, and then
in his shrillest tones vociferated
'Here, -, where in h 's the arm
holes I" It is a safe bet that 'somebody
will have to pay for those pants before
the summer is over and gone." AU

B&US8CL8, August 13. Advices
from Metz, through private channels,
teem to confirm the story of the removal
of tke Prince Imperial from trance.
He has not been seen in court or church
since; Sunday. It is reported, oh good
authority,. that kugeme has made prep
aration to go to England, by way of
UCigiUJi, in case 01 neceusity.
JjONdon, August ii$ A special to
the Telegraph says reports from Carl
shue this moruiog anuounee the eapitu-
lation, of, Strasbourg after a short bom
bardment. , . .
Sharp fighting took place in front of
Metz yesterday. A considerable force
of Prussians advanced into the environs
of the city as a reconnoitering party,
to discover if the report of the town
having been evacuated by the French
was true. They were taken by suprrisc
by a fire from the batteries, and forced
to retire.
It would appear that, the Prussian
advance has received a decided check
at this point, and a great battle cannot
much longer be delayed.
Paris, Aug. 13. Dispatches to
the Minister of War say that a recent
reconnoissance made near the enemy
indicate that the Prussians have an in
vading army of 750,000 men between
Cologne and Rastadt. The chiefs of
the French army are fully prepared to
resist this torrent of invasion. Over
400,000 troops will in a day or two be
united between the Vnsgea and the
Moselle. The bulk of the French
army is now concentrated around Mets,
where the first detachment of the corps
of McMahon and Failley arrived yes
terday. The retreat of the troops was made
in good order
The abandcomett of Alsace by the
French causes great anxiety, and dis
content at and near Strasbourg. That
place is well provided for in war material
and provisions, but the garrison, it is
feared, will not be able to hold out long.
Iowa Wiikat. The Iowa RegUttr
of July 27th, speaking of the wheat
prospects in that State, says :
The month of July closes well agri
culturally. Through May and June
we thought wa were io a fearfully bad
row of stumps. All the prophets and
all the oldest inhabitant agreed that we
were to have no wheat and oats worth
cutting. The opinion became general,
and times were' blue. But the proph
ets were wrong. Timely showers came
and tho crop of small grains was saved.
Its harvest has now been in progress
for two or three weeks, and is prob
ably, taking the whole State over,
three-fourths done I u Southern Iowa
cutting is about done, stacking well
started, and threshing begun ; in the
North, this will be tho busy week, and
will nearly finish up tho cutting. Of
the wheat, there is but one report all
over the State, which is to the effect
that, while the yield is not so great in
bushels, it is of the best, ! being the
plumpest, firmest, and brightest ever
raised in the State. The crop per acre
will be worth more than any we have
had for several years, and the prospect
is if Napoleon and the Prussians carry
out the big job of war they have com
menced, that it will bring the most
money our, wheat crop has ever
brought. Old residents say they have
never ' seen wheat of such superior
quality in Iowa. ;
nonainus Burning Accident.
The Portland Advertiser says : "Mrs.
Eliza II. Barber, of Portsmouth, N. II.,
widow of Jethro L. Barber, was burn
ed to death Sunday afternoon. Her
grandson Daniel had left her about half
an hour before fire was disoovcred in
her room ; she , was then sitting at - a
table near and back to a stove, eating
strawberries. Shortly before 5 o'clock
Mr. David Marshal, a neighbor, discovi
ered smoke issuing from the house,
and, and, with others, entered Mrs.' Bar
ber's room, found it on fire aud full of i
smoke, the ' old lady lying dead upon
the floor, her clothes being burned off,
and her body blackened and burned to
a crisp. The fire was: speedily extin
guished, and it. was found that the chair
on which she' had been" sitting, was
scorched, and ! a oloset door against
which she had fallen was badly scorch '"
cd and had some of ; the, flesh from her
face adhering to it. Her body present
ed a horrible spectacle. ' No doubt the
fire was communicated to her olothing
by the stove.!) Mrs. Barber was seven
ty eight 'years of; age, was lame and
feeble in health ; so much so that she
probably had not sufficient strength to
raise her voiee loud enough to be beard
