The following passages are from Henry Taylor's Si. Clement's Eve. THH CHARM OP IMPERFECTION. There is a power in beauty which subdues All accidents of Nature Lo itself. Aurora comes in clouds, and yet the cloud Dims not, but decks her beauty. 'Furthermore Whate'er shall single out a personal self Takes with a subtler magic. So of shape ; Perfect proportion, like unclouded light, Is but a faultless model; small defect Conjoint with excellence, more moves and wins, Making the heavenly human. A LUSATTC'S FA^CT. Once I thought my body-was a church, My head the belfr> ; and you'd scarce believe What clangor and what swinging to and fro Went on, and how the belfry rocked and reeled, Till Death, tlie knock-need laggard, came to church Then all was peace. ■ THB CKI3DUL1TY OF WISDOM. "\Vi:;dom errs la nought more oft than putting easy trust In tales when things are dark. For man is loth In argument where grounded thought is none And yet the theme solicitous, to fold The wings of thought aud drop its lid and owu That in a night of knowledge to roost and sleep I. judgment's so." sagacity. MORALIZING OP ORIS-NEZ THE FOOL. Knowest thou not, Sir Pool my brother, One dirty hand can wash another ■ Oft times olfenceB that are" twins Shalt suffer less tbi.u single'sins ; . Stern forfeits tread upon his kibe Who hath not robbed enough to bribe ; To (Hs-tanee justice in the course Who steals a purse should steal a horse ; Not hardly the offender fares When Accusation goes shares ; Receive thou, then, dear brother Fool, Monition wise from Folly's School, To kisn a Nun nor fear the worst Thou should'st have kissed the Abbess first. Intant Phenomena.—You still see. here and there, idiotic parents striving to make infant phenomena of their children; and recording with much pride how their children could read and write at an unnaturally early age. Such parents are fools ; not certainly malicious fools, but fools beyond question- The great use to which the first six or seven years of life should be given, is the laying the foundation of a healthful constitution in body andmind;«nd tho instilling of those fiL':::t principles of duty and religion which do not need to be" taught out of books. Even if you do not permanently injure the young brain and mind prematurely overtasking them; even if you do not permanently "blight the bodily heal thi aud break the minds cheerful soring, you gain nothing. Your child at 14 years old is not a hit further advanced in his education than a child who began his years after him ; and the entire result of your stupid driving has beeu to overcloud some days which should have been among the happiest of his life. Tt is a woful sight to me to see the little forehead corrugated with mental effort, though the effort be to do no more than master the multiplication table; it was a sad story I heard of a little boy repeating his latin lesson over aud again in the delirium ofthe fever of which he died, and saying piteo- ously that indeed he could not do it better.—Fra- sij t Max Tobacco EsciTsaSMl in Costba Costa.—A successful experiment has been made this season in our county in the cultivation of tobacco by Messrs. Stout and Pcden, cf San Ramon Valley. They have planted about twelve acres, and the tobacco has come up beautifully and matured thoroughly. It is now fully ripe, and will be cut next week. Good judges estimato the average product as certainly not less than bve hundred pounds per acre, ami probably more. The sorts that have turned out best, we are told, aro the Long (been and the Maryland Straight tobacco. This experiment demonstrates the capacity and the adaptability of our soil aud climate to the rearing of this plant. There can be no longer any doubt on the subject. The matter is tested and lairly proven. Quite an ex citement has been created in the neighborhood o' Alamo and Danville, among the farmers, we understand, owing to tho success of this new experiment. From what we hear, we should not bo surprised if very large crops should be raided next year in tha1 locality.— Contra Costa Gazette, CARE. Care is like a husbandman Who doth guard our treasures, And the while, all ways he can, Spoils our harmless pleasures. Loving hearts and laughing brows Most he seeks to plunder ; And each furrow that he plows, Turns the roses under. Alice Cart. The Sea Beyond. 0 life! O silent Bhore! Where we sit patient—0 great sea beyond. To which wo turn with solemn hope aud fond, But sorrowful no more :— A little while and then we, too, shall soar Like white-winged sea-birds iu the infinite deep ; Till then, Thou, Father, will our spirits keep.

The Boston Traveller publishes as an on dit tha certain parties have gono to Mount Ararat to find the remnants of Noah's Ark, and sell them to the Unit lid states Government for transport service, at a profit of five thousand percent. The Ark could be laden with shoddy, with shoes as soleless as their makers and with Belgian muskets, warranted to be harmful only to those using them—and so the cargo and tho craft would be matched, and when sunk the loss would be a gain. In the Polytechnic School of Paris. It was found that the habitual tobacco-smokers were far below others iu the competitive examinations. Tobacco- smokers, Hkc opium takers, become lazy and stupid ; but they have not the vices of gin-drinkers- As to the effect of tobacco upon the organization generally, I am inclined to think that it is more deleterious than opium, and more productiv disease when the use of it is carried into excess.— Sir Benjamin C. Brodie. It appears that wives were even more expensive luxuries in ancient limes th-ui they are now-a days. The following is an authenticated list of the most famous jewels of Roman ladies: Faustina's finger" ring, $200)000;Dornit"a's ring, $300,000; Caisonia'a bracelet, $400,000 ; Poppaa's (Caisar's wife) earrings, "above suspicion,'' $1,200,000 ; Labina's diadem, $1,200,000. It is stated that Sir Joseph Paxton is about to construct at Passey, near Parle, for the Emperor Napoleon, a new Crystal Palace of such dimensions that that of Sydenham would sink into iusig- uilicauce ii placed beside it. An ecclesiastic asked Garrick how it was that fiction iu the theatre commanded larger audiences than truth in the pulpit. The actor replied : "The stage handled fiction as if it were truth, while the pulpit made truth appear like fiction." Lady Temple, of Stow, died iu 1856, having given birth to lour sous and nine daughters, and lived to see 700 descendants.—Book of Days. In chemistry, the best way to separate two bodies ia to introduce a third. The same holds true In other departments. To increase the distance between a pair of lovers, all that's required ia to let Willie walk Into the "back parlor" with a lighted candle in bis hand. Brigham Young has sent oue of his sons to Washington as a member of the delegation uow at the capital lobbying in the political and polygamic interests of Utah. Old Abe, in discussing conjugal matters with him, is said to have remarked that it was absured to talk about polgamy\ as "he never of a man h&vinga wife who wanted two.'" yet heard " Children ," said a considerate matron to her assembled progeny, "children, you may have anything you want, but you musn't want anything yuu can't have." Chinese Etiquette.— As samples of Chinese etiquette, the following will be edifyiDg to the reader. A polite Chinese, desiring to ask a stranger his name, inquires—"What is your honorable name?" To which the answer is—-'My ignoble name is Smith, or King," as tbe fact may be. Inquiring for his .residence, he asks-—" Where is your stately mansion-V7- • Answer—'-My miserable hovel is on the bank of the river," If he inquires after the number of his eons, (daughters are never Inquired after.) it is asked— "What is the number of your princely sons ?" Answer—"The eumber of my trifling puppies is one, two, three, four," as the case may be. But a harder question still to answer is—" How is your accomplished lady ?" Answer—"My stujnd thornbush is so and so," A Frenchwoman named Uuet, who has reached the extraordinary age of 186 years, was recently much improved in health by getting knocked down by a cart in the streets of Paris. Whereas she was previously quite weak: and infirm, the strong nervous shock has so revived her faculties that she is now exceedingly vigorous, and, as one of the French papers says "it is thought that she may yet live a long while." She followed most of the campaigns of the first Napoleon as a vivan- die re. Mr. Gregory, the explorer of Northwestern Australia, has visited Melbourne, with several new -plants and objects of interest which he has discovered. One is a new species of gourd, found at Nickleby, in latitude 20° S., longitude 117° E.; also a plaut believed to be entirely new, the frnit of which, when fresh gathered, has a strong odor resembling that of garlic ; likewise a new species of palm, some kiuds of beans, and several handsome pearls. Discovery Is Locomotion,—A new discovery iu locomotion has been made in France, and it is con. sidered to be of so much importance that a commission has beeu appointed by the Emperor to examine and report upon it, M. Girard has constructed the model of a railway adapted for runners like those of a sledge. The runners move in a soit of clog ; between this aud the rails wator it introduced, and thus almost all friction is avoided. Should thia piau prove successful on a large scale, much wear and tear, uot only of the carriages, but of the passengers' nerves, will be saved. How delightful it will be to slide smoothly over a aurle.ee of water, instead of having one's bones dislocated by being rattled over uneven rails, aud one's head stupefied by the perpetual clatter. Theology am) Thirst.—It is a current story in Teviotdale, [Scotland,] that iu the house of au an" cieut family of distinction^ much addicted to the Presbyterian cause, a bible was always put into the sleeping apartment ol the guests, along with a bottle of strong aie. On oue occasion, there was a meeting of clergymen in the vicinity of the castle, all of whom were invited to dinner by the worthy baronet, and several abode all night. According to the fasion of the times, Bcveu of the revereud guests were allotted to oue large barrack room, which was used ou such occasious of extended hospitality. The battler took care that the divines were presented, according to custom, each with a bible aud a bottle of ale. But after a little consultation among themselves, they are said to have recalled the domestic as he was leaving the apartment. "My friend*," said one of the venerable guests, "you must know, when we luuet together as brethren, the youngest minister rends aloud a portion of Scripture to the rest; only on,1 bible is, therefore, necessary ; take away the other six, and in their places bring six more bottles of ale." Oh! marry the man you love, girls, if you can get him at all; if he is as rich as IfcflttiiB, ot as poor as Job in his fall. Do net many tor self, girls— twill bring your soul into thrall; but umrry the man you love, girls if his purse is ev^r Be small. Oh! never m.ury a lop, girls, whether he he little or tall; he'll make a fool of himself and you, he knowe nothing well'but to drawl. But marry a Sober man, girls, there are few left on this ball; and you'll uever rue the day that you ever •named at all. Names of Recent Battles.—The fol- LoTvihg are tlie names, which, it seciiiH, kftve been assigned to the recent battles in front of Eieha&ond : Tluu'sdity, Juno 2fj—Battle of Mcchan- icsville. Friday, June 27.—Battle of Game's Mill. Satur.Liy. June :-::;.---jj;;tLie of the CiriekiihornniY. Sunday, Juno 29.—Battle M' Peach Orcnardj battle of Savaged Station. Monday June 80.—.Battle of Whito Oak Swamp; battle of Wli ite Oak Creek; battle of Charles City Cross Koadfl, Tuesday, July 1.—Battle of Turkey Bend. Knights oy the Golden Circle.— Take a map of the western hemisphere, and find trie Island of Cuba; place one leg of a pair of (Sht«dera ia the center of the Island, extend the other to tho 36thpamUei of nojrthlatitude, and sweep a circle. You will then remark that the circumference thus dr'iwn. will include the slave territory of tlie United States, a portion of Mexico and California, Central America, all the West India Islands, the Isthmus of Panama, and a portion of South America, together with the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. A single glance and a moment's reflection will convince the examiner that the territory, and waters included, would form one of the richest and most commanding empires on tho earth. This, reader, ia what is meant by the •'Golden Circle." To possess this prodigiously fertile and commercially im- portaht territory, and establish therein a groat Slave Empire, was the purpose of the Knights of the Golden Circle, of Whom you have read in newspapers. —Sierra News. A chap who procured some whisky of an army sutler, in which to preserve some zoological, specimen says: "A week in the whiskey bottle has deprived three of my best lizards of their tails, and mado painfully apparent inroads on the beauty ot the venomous little snake, who was its first victim. The remains of my collection arc at tho service of any temperance lecturer who happens to be in want of a "Horrid Example." Swift called dancing '-voluntary madness." The Chinese seem to think it useless fatigue; for when Commodore Anson was at Canton, tho owners of the Centurion had a ball upon some court holiday, and while they were dancing, a Chinese who surveyed the operation, sa^l softly to oue of the party, "Why don't you let your servants.do this for you?" "The Heavks bobn- Statesman".—In a review of Earl Stanhope's Life of Pitt, the London Times says Pitt's iunocency was seen In a good number of things. " lie is the most forgiving and easy-tempered ol men," says Lord Malmoshury, " lie ia the most uptight political character I ever kuew or heard of," says Wilberforco. " I never once saw him out of temper," says George Rose, Ouo day when the conversation turned upou the quality most needed in a Prime Minister, and one said "Eloquence," another '■ Knowledge, ■' and a third " Toil," Pitt Stiid "No, Patience." It^vas an answer worthy of the great statesman, aud recalls that of Newton, who said that he owed his splendid discoveries to the power of fixed attention.— Pitt was wonderfully patient, and this which is com- uioiily regarded as a slow virtue he combined with uncommon readinewaand rapidity ol thought. "What an extraordinary man Pitt ia," said Adam Smith * " he makes me understand my own ideas better than before." This was the lieaveu-born minister. This was '■ the pilot to weather the storm." This is ho who stands forth the greatest of our statesmen, and the story of whose life, now fitly told, will havo undying interest throughout the world j GuiZOT AT BCCMBQHAM PALACE,—M.GuiZOt, iu his new work, has ttie following sketch of a dinner at Buckingham Palace : On Thursday, the 5th of March, I diued for tho first time with the Queen, Neither during the dinner nor in thedrnwiug-rooiu afterwards was the conversation animated or inter" cstiug. Political subjects were entirely avoided ; wc sat around a circular table, before the Queen, who waa on a sofa ; two or three of her ladles were endeavoring to work ; Prince Albert played at chess; Lady Palmerston audi, with some effort, carried ou a flagging dialogue. I observed, over the three doors of the apartment, three portraits, Feuelon, the Czar Peter the Great, and Ann Hyde, daughter of Lord Clarendon, the first wife of James the Second. I felt surprised at this association of thfee persobs 60 incongruous. No one could exuluiu the reaBOO. I thought of one—the portraits were selected for their size—they fitted well iu their respective places, A New Barometer.—54. Sauvegeon of Valence has studied thediffurent pheaomena which are produced in n cup of OeSse when the sugar is put into it, and the result of thoBe observations trans - forms tha demi tasse into a barometer, "If, in sweetening youi coffee,V says tl- Sauvageon, "you allow the shgar to dissolve without stirring tho liquid, the globules of air contained in the sugar will rise to the Surface of the liquid. If these globules form a frothy mass, remaining in the centre of the cup. it is an indication of duration of flue weather; if, on the contrary, the froth forms a ring round the sides of tbts cup, it is a sign of heavy rain ; variable weather is implied by the froth remaining stationary, but not esactly in the centre."
