Alioul a year or two ago.
When I was young ami rather trreen,
1 chanced to meet the pretlien gill
My yoiitliliil eyes Lad ever seen.
Of course you liave already guessed
What I am now about to say :
That on the wings of quenchless love
My tender heart soon Qev away
I swore that Nellie's glossy curls
Were blacker than the raven's plume;
I thoiigiit the tint upon tier cheek
Would shame ihe rose's velvet bloom.
I raved about her starrv eves.
Compared her hands to (Likes of snow:
I said her teeth were shining pearls.
And called her mo-illi a coral bow.
Well, s'range as it in iv seem to yon.
Although that girl is just as lair.
With eves as b-iglit ami blue as then.
And chisieiing curls of midnight h-iit
Though every charm that won my heart
lis pristine freshness still retains.
Ami though hr temper's sweet. I own.
And ill her innocence retna-ns ;
Yet now my heart doth never beat.
When noting her unconscious grace;
And. with a cold, iiidillereiit eye,
I look ii poll her childlike lace.
Her kisses are insipid now.
lief hand 1 never cue to press;
Pome. imos 1 ii igu lo notice her.
And just bestow a slight caress.
I wonder wh:it has changed mo so
lis true I leid a I as! is!; life;
I 1 1 1 this is how it is. you know.
It. is because she is IliV wiie.

There is nothing more fortunate
for modern genius than to he horn
poor. The "sil er spoon"' class are
a very comfortable people, no
doubt, hut the great trouble with
them is, their education is mainly
of this order, and if they don't be
come very great ihey are extreme
ly likely to heome the very oppo
site. Poverty has helped men to
solve some of the greatest prob
lems of life. Half its brave deeds
have been a necessity, and the most
of its noble sayings have been born
of a determined opposition. It
does a man good to put him at his
wit's ends. Emergencies make
men. Any man can he a general
or a pilot in a calm; but storm
show the metal. Poputation is
made more bv boldness and will
than by ability and patience. Life
is too short to wait for tiie tide
whose ebb leads on to fortune. V e
must make the most of the present
opportunities", but we shall hardly
do it, unless present opportunities
are in the mam present necessities.

A Published Letter.
The editor of the Chr'txtian
Jfesactifer, published at Monmouth-
Polk county, publishes in tlie last
issue of that paper a very interest
ing letter in reply to a friend in
Missouri, from which we make the
following extract :
The failure of the mar
ket for wheat this season has pro
duced a partial stagnation in busi
ness. The Witnt of transportation
and consequent high freights
caused wheat to decline to sixty
five cents per bushel. This ren
ders money scarce and the people
despondent; yet with the resources
ami energy of a western people
this depression cannot last loner.
The soil yields abundantly small
urrain, vegetables, and fruit of the
iinest quality, except peaches,
which do not grow and mature
well in the valley. East of the
Cascade Mountains ami in the val
lies south, peaches and melons are
raised to perfection.
We have no hemp land on this
coast, and our soil will not com
pare favorably with X. W. Mis
souri. Vet it produces freely and
abundantky. The climate is de
lightful. Tlie -"Oregon mist," so
dreadful to those who hear of it at
a distance, is not more disagreea
ble than the thunder storms in
Missouri. .Wo have not had at
any time, at Moninou'h, within the
last three winters, lour inches of
snow. And I do not remember
that it remained on the ground at
at any lime more than forty-eight
hours. I have potatoes and ap
ples exposed in an open barn which
have not frozen this winter. I
have never lived in a more health
ful climate. Take the statistics of
this locality af a sample. With
Monmouth as a centre and with a
ratlins of two miles and a half, the
circle embraces a population ot
one family to every quarter sec
tion, and includes Independence, a
village of three hundred inhabit
ants, and Monmouth with its col
lege of 150 students. The only
deaths in this population for two
years past, that 1 can now recall
lo mind, are one man over 90
years of age, one lady, who came
into the neighborhood and died
soon after of consumption, two ot h
ers of typhoid fever, and a lady
and her infant of a lew days old,
not attributable to the climate.
Only six deaths out of a popula
tion of 12 or 1,500 in two years is
better than a volume to establish
the healthfulness of any locality.
Chills .and fever prevail along
the streams, but seldom appear out
of the bottoms. The scenery is
grand and lovely. Communica
lion will soon be established by
railroads southward with Califor
nia, and eastward with the north
and westward States. This will put
Oregon in direct communication
with ihe outside world, and make
this valley, in its whole extent, the
great thoroughfare of commerce
With undeveloped resources in
almost every department of indus
try inviting capita' and labor, the
population' must increase very rap
idly; and Oregon must soon occu
py" a prominent position amongst
the States of the Union. The
spirit of education is intense, and
schools and academies art? liberally
sustained and patronized in .almost
every community. Our colleges
too, "rather too numerous for the
demand in classical education, are
patronized beyond what could be
txpected in a country so new.
Our society is composed chielly
of that class of men and women
who had energy and neiwc to en
counter the hardships and brave
the dangers of a trip across the
plains, and who with a trusty title
and a good ax, could defend them
selves in a wilderness, and hue out
:i home in a wild country.
Amongst fitch a people the.stran
ger" receives a cordial welcome,
and a sustaining hand to establish
himself in business, if lie shows
We want our unoccupied lands
taken up, and our resources de-cl-oped.
Hence we want men of the
Napoleonic spirit, who can first
make lor themselves a situation,
and then fill it. To all such Ore
gon holds out tempting rewards
and cheering prospects.
They appear to he cursed with
some very bad preaching in Iowa.
A minister in Hardin county, in
that State, lately had to sue lor his
salary, which amounted to the
munificent sum of f30 GO, and the
defence set up was want of con
sideration. The preaching warift
worth the money. Perhaps the
salvation ef that community was
not of sufficient importance to jus
tify more extensive exhortation.
It is computed that 75,000,000
worth of fuel is burned yearly in
the United Stales, and that 100,
000,000 worth of lumber is used
annually in buildings and in manufactures.
The Strasbourg Clock Surpassed.
A German of Cincinnati lias in
vented a clock which, though much
smaller than the celebrated one at
Strasbourg, is, from its description,
much more complicated. We see
in a glass case, a three-story, stee
ple shaped clock, four feet wide at
the first story and nine feet high.
The movements are placed in the
first story, on four elelicatecolumns,
within which swings the pendulum.
The second story consists of two
towerlike pieces on the doors of
which there are two pictures that
represent boyhood and early man
hood. A tower crowns, as third story,
the ingenious structure. A cock
as a symbol of watchfulness, stands
on the top. directly over the portal.
When the clock" marks tlie first
quarter the eloor of the left piece
ot the second story opens, and a
child issues lrom the back-ground,
comes forward to a little bell, gives
it one blow, and then disappears.
At the second quarter a youth
appears, strikes the bell twice and
disappears; at the third conies a
man in his prime; at the fourth we
have a tottering old man, leaning
em a stall", who strikes the bell four
times. Each time the eloor closes
of itself. When the hours are full,
the door of the right piece ef the
second story opens, and Death, as
a skeleton, scythe in hauel, appears
ami marks the hour by striking a
bell. Hut it is at the twelfth hour
that we have tlie grand spectacle
in the representation of the day of
Judgment. Then when death has
struck three blows on the little
bell, the cock em the teip of the
tower siuhlenly llaps his wings,
and creiws in a shrill tone; and,
after Death hath marked the
twelfth hour with, his hammer, he
creiws again "twice. Inunceliatcly
three angels, who stand as guard
ians in a central position, raise
their trumpets with their hands (in
tin; left they hold sworels) cand
blow a blast toward each ot the
four corners e)f the earth, At the
last blast, the eloor of the tower
opens, and the resurrected children
of the earth appear, while the ele
stioying angel sinks out of sight.
Then, suddenly, Christ descends,
surrounded by angels. On his left
there is an angel who holds the
scales of justice; on his right anoth
er carries the Ioek of I ile, which
opens to show the alpl a and
emiega the beginning and the end.
Christ waves his hand, and instant
ly the good among the resurrected
are separated front the wicked, the
former going to the right, and the
latter to tlie left. The Archangel
Michael salutes the gods while em
the either side stands the devil,
radiant with fiendish doliiihl he
can hardly wait for the final sen
tence of tiiose who fall te him, but
in obedience to the command of
the central figure, he withdraws.
The figure eif Christ raises its hand
again, with a threatening mien,
and the accused sink down to the
realms of his satanic majesty.
Then Christ blesses the chose n few,
who draw near ter, him. Einally
we hear a cheerful chime of bells,
during which Christ rises surround
cel by" Ids angels, until he disap
pears and the portal closes.
A cetmplete drama is here repre-se-ntcd
without the aid of a human
hand. The meivernents are calm,
steady ami neiiseless, with the ex
ception of tire threatening gestures
ef the figure of Christ and the,
movements of Lucifer, who darts
across the scent with lightning
rapidity. Of course the peculiar
action ef these two figures is inten
tional em the part of the artist, ami
adds greatly to the effect.
