JONAS G. CLARK & CO., No. 128 Washington street, aug 30 San Francisco Tlie Present. Do not crouch to-day, and worship The old Past, whose life is fled ; Hush your voice to tender reverence ; Crown'd he lies, but cold and dead; For the Present reigns our monarch, With an added weight of hours j Honor her, tor she is mighty! Honor her, for she is ours!. See the shadows of his heroes, Girt aroiind her cloudy throne ■ And each day the ranks are strengthened By great heart, to him unknown ; Noble things the great Past promised, Holy dreams, both strange and new ; But the Present shall fullill them, What he promised she shall do. She inherits all his treasures, She is heir to all his fame, And the light that lightens round her, Is the lustre of his name ; She ia wise with all his wisdom, ■ Living on'his grave she stands ; On her brow she bears hia laurels, And her ha_v__t- iti her baud. Coward, can she reign and conquer, If we thus her glory dim T Let us fight for her as nobly Aa our .'athers did for him. God, wbo orowns the dying ages, Bids us rule, and'us obey— Bids us cast our lives before her, With our loving hearts to day I T_ast Year's Dead.—By Benj. F. "Taylor. Some, like the Morning Star, went out at dawn, Wheu birds did smfr at Heaven's gate aloud ; Some, like tbe sun, kept shining bravely on, Still in the West, beneath a golden cloud, Tlie dead Day lay in State, and lamps did burn, In all of Heaven, to welcome their return ; And Earth' was dewy with the tears she shed, And bared her bosom for the coming dead, But still upon the Western threshold ofthe World They yet shall linger, and our eyes behold, Till this great azure, tent of time is furled ; And ages -stand before God's Gates of Gold. We cannot weep for these. The Sexton makes Their graves in vain. The green earth idly break- In voiceless billows, for her Etitiop breast Shall not unfold them. Let her love tbe flowers. And woo the leaves December has caressed* Let her put shrouds on the summer hours And fold dead birds within the snowy drift, But these are not for her. Oh I she may lift The pail, the turf—the might are not there, Though bell and rite and dirge were rnngandsaid And sung, no sigh nor sting can make them dead Whom God did give His wardrobe for their wear! As vainly dream to bear the star away, Shining tbe night out, in a drop of dew, That June has shed upon the rose's crest, A syllable of Heaven—to some far day, And think to set that crystal shrine anew, In starry splendor upon beauty's breast. Uh ! MasU-r builder ofthe solemn tomb. Oh ! Mighty Weaver of the shrouds of gloom, These are not thine, pb! Time, for they shall be, When not a withered leaf remains of thee ! And those who went at morning. like the bird, That meet the dawn a moment out of Heaven— For whom a window opened, and we heard The songs of seraphs and of souls forgiven—■ We cannot weep ior them, who ever keep, So close to Paradise, their very sleep Is white with wings and beautiful with dreams ; The Foundlings ot the world, see where we lie, On Heaven's threshold, above its streams, A ray of glory. Do you deem they die, When, gates ajar, they creep confiding in, Truants irom thee, ol) ! Time, from tears and sin ? Oh ! wondrous journey they have finished there— From cradle mimming unto an angel choir! Growth of Cities. London is now the greatest concentration of human power the world has ever known. Will its supremacy be permanent, or will it, like its predecessors, be eclipsed by western rivals 1 New Yorkers do not doubt, and indeed have no reason to doubt, that their city, now numbering little more than one-third of the population of London, will within tiie next fifty years, be greater than the m.tropolis ofthe British empire. New York, with her immediate dependencies, numbers about 900 000. Since 1790 she. has established a law of growth which doubles her population once in fifteen years. If this law continues to operate, she may be expected to possess in 1881,1,800,000 ; 3.600,000 in 1886, aud 7,200,000 in 1901. If twenty years be allowed New York as her future period of duplication, she would overtake London by the end of fifty years. London may then have five millions ; New York will almost certainly have more than that number. Will the star of empire become stationary at New York? The ititerior plain ofNorth America has within itself more means to sustain a dense population in civilized comfort than any other region ofthe world. The star of empire cannot be arrested in its western course uutil it reaches this plain. Its most promising city at present is Chicago. Tbe law of its growth since 1840 seems to be a duplication within four years. In 1810 it numbered 4379. In June of this year it will contain 88.000. At the same rate of increase carried forward, it would overt-lie New York within twenty years. If six years be allowed for each future duplication, Chicago would overtake New York in thirty-three years. If the growth of Chicago should iu future be measured by a duplication of every seven years, it would contain 5,622,- 000 in forty-two years. In 1901, forty-five years from this time, the central plain, including the Canadas, will coutain about eighty millions of people. Its chief city may be expected to contain about one-tenth of this population. Before tbe end of this century, the towns and cities of the central plain will contain, within their suburbs, not less thau half their entire population—that is to say forty millions. How these millions shall be apportioned among the cities of that day, is a subject for curious speculation. ■ — *»n^l ' % * -W Cuuiou. I*\tve.\"f[o>~.—A very curious invention has been madeMn England, Its object is the manufacture ot picture frames, and other articles of like description out of bricks; and, singularly enough, such an object as this has been and can be successfully accomplished. It is done, as we understand, by reducing pieces of old brick to powder, mixing this powder with some portion of the tar or refuse of the gas works, and then compressing tbe mixture iuto suitable moulds. The result is said to be a solid, durable and beautiful article, of almost any given pattern. The Royal Spy. Of all the mysteries that occurred in the American Revolution, tho employment of Riviugton, editor of the Royal Gazette, iu the secret service of the American commander, is the most astonishing. The time that this remarkable connection took place is of course unknown. There ia much probability that it may have commenced at the closing ot the campaign of 1776, as it is known that about that time Robert Morris borrowed of a Qu&ker, five hundred guineas iu gold for the secret service of Washington's arms, and that intelligence of vital and vast importance was obtained from the disbursement «f the Quaker's loan. The worthy Quaker said to Morris :—" How can I, friend Robert, wbo am a man of peace, lend thee money for the purpose of war? Friend George, is, I believe, a good man, and fighting in a good cause ; but I am opposed to fighting of any sort.' Morris, however, soon managed to quiet old Broadbrim's scruples j the gold was dug up from his garden, and handed over to the Commander- in-Chief whose application of it to the secret service produced the happiest effdets upon the cause of the Revolution in the critical period of our destiny. Rivington proved faithful to his bargain, and often would intelligence of great importance, gleaned at convivial moments at Sir William's or Sir Harry's table, be in the American camp, before the convivialists had slept eft' the effects of their wine. The business of the secret service was so well managed that oven a supicion never arose as to the medium through which intelligence of vast importance was continually being received iu the American camp, from the very head quarters oi the British army ; and, had suspicion arose, the King's printer would probably have been the last man suspected, for during the whole of his connection with the secret services his Royal Gazette literally piled abuses of every sort upou the American General and the cause of America. In 1783 this remarkable mystery was solved.— When Washington entered New York a conqueror, by the evacuation ot the British he- s_id one morning to two of his officers : " Suppose, gentlemen, we walk down to Riving- ton's book store ; he is said to be a very pleasant kind of fellow. Amazed as the officers were at the idea of visiting such a man, they of course prepared to accompany the Chief. When arrived at the book store, Rivington received his visitors with great politeness ; for he was indeed one of the most elegant gentlemen and best bred men of the age. Escort' ing the party into a parlor, he begged the officers to be seated, and then said to the Chief ; " Will your Excellency do me the honor to step into the adjoining room for a moment, that I may show you the list of the agricultural works I am about to order out from London for your special use V The locks on the doors of tbe houses in New York city, more than three score years ago were not so good as now. The door of Riviiigton's private room closed very imperfectly and soon became ajar, when the officers distinctly beard the chinking of two heavy purses of gold as they were successively put upon a table. The party soon returned frond the inner room, when Rivington pressed upon his guests a glass of Maderia which he assured them was a prime article, having imported it himself. The visitors now rose to depart. Rivington, on taking leave of the Chief, whom he escorted to the door, sai: " Your Excellency may rely upon my especial attention being given to the agricultural works, which, on their arrival, will be immediately forwarded to Mount Vernon, where I trust they will contribute to your gratification amid the shades of domestic retirement." Rivington remained for several years after the peace of 17S-3, then returned to England, and there died. He was never called to account by his government for the affair of the secret service. It was the general opinion at that time if Rivington had been closely pressed on the delicate service, characters of greater caliber might have appeared on tbe tapis than the King's Printer. Fr-cmusofi- In Turkey. A correspondent of the London Daily News, writing from Belgrade, says: More thau a year ago I communicated to you the fact of the existeuce of Mahomedan Freemasons in European Turkey, whose tendency, signs, and other modes of recognition are iden tical with those ofthe masons in other countries of Europe. These Bektaschi Dervishes—as they are called in Turkish—were, however, always looked upon by the Porte as anon recognized religious sect, and property belonging to the order was therefore confiscated, in con-Sequence ol wbich they have eoutiuuedever since to act witb great caution, aud hold their lodges in secret. Amongst the nine lodges of the order, there happen to be several members of high rank and now enjoying great influence at Constantinople The Graud Master ofthe Order in European Turkey is Tzani Zscholak Mahommed Saede, who re- tides at Belgrade, and is at the same time master ofthe lodge of Allkotsch. in this city. In consequence of ttie new order of things in Turkey, and especially in virtue ofthe lately published Hatti- Humuiayoum, which acknowledges the legal existence of all religious creeds and sexes, and guarantees the full exercise of their several forms of worship, the above named Grand Master left this place yesterday ior Constantinople, to endeavor to obtain for the former persecuted Bektaschi Dervishes the formal recognition ofthe Turkish government, and if he succeeds he will apply for restitution of the property formerly belonging to the order and confiscated. The religion of the Bektaschi is decidedly tbe most enlightened and liberal lorra of MaLomedanism, witb the greatest approach to civilization and improvement. Description ot the Capitol. This work being now fairly under way, we proceed to lay before tbe public the following description of its character and dimeusions. The edifice is to be located on the square bounded by I and J, Ninth aud Tenth streets, being in the upper part of the city, and on the most elevated ground within its limits. The form of the building will be that of a Greek cross, with portico*- at each of the four ends, surmounted by a dome In the centre. The leugth, one way, exclusive .f tbe porticos, will be 212 feet; the other 131 feet. The width of each arm will be 6*1- feet G inchei.— It will consist of two stories, betides the basement. The top of the cornice will be 70 feet from the ground ; the top or the dome, 131 feet. The basement is to be 8 feet high; the first, or main story, wil] be 20 feet 11 Inches; and the second, 20 feet 8 inches. The Senate Chamber aud hall of Assembly, the two principal apartments, will be -:f_ feet 6 inches in bight. The edifice together witb the shafts of columns, pilasters, cornices, &c. are to be of brick. The basement, with the steps to the porticos, and the different entrances will be granite. Tho floors of the rotunda porticos and basement halls will be marble tiles Tbe caps and bases of the columns, pilasters, cornices, window sills, water conductors, ventilators, railings, &c, are to be made of cast iron. The floors of the halls and rotunda in the basement, and also over tbe cellars, are to be supported by wrought iron beams. There is to be a gallery around the rotunda; also, one in the Supremo Court Rooni, the Senate Chamber and tho Hall of Assembly. The edifice will be supplied witb 42 windows in the basement, 50 in the principle story, 54 in the second, and 16 in the rotunda. There is to be one skylight oyer the back stairs, and two in the top of the dome. The roof, gutters, dome, _-C, are to be covered with heavy tin. The ceilings throughout are to be plastered ; and the architraves, cornices, jambs, &c, are to be run with. cement or stucco. Enriched panels and mouldings will appear in various parts of the building, while the principle offices aud chambers will be embellished with ornamented centre pieces. The outside of tbe edifice is to be plastered with cement mortar. Thedoorsaud window sashes are to be grained in imitation of oak, and all the exterior wood and iron work, including the roof and gutters, are to be painted and _anded.-5_-c.-4gf.. The Great African D-sbht.—Few men have* a correct standard by which to measure the vast extent of the African Desert. It stretches westward down to the green waters of the Atlantic. It yieldsnot to the gigantic floods that the great ocean ceaselessly rolls against the continent. Far into the high sea, the Sahara extends below the- restless waves, so tbat the depth of water is but trifiing for miles, and ships cannot approach the inhospitable shores. Fearful sand baDks announce to tbe weary mariner that he is near the land of mysterious Africa, and warn him to seek more ndly harbors. Eastward, the dread wastespread. its white shroud over the whole northern part of the continent, until at last it is lifted on high by the pyramids of Egypt and torn by the mighty floods of the Nile. In vain, year after year, does t roll its colossal, dry waves over lhe Sphynx and Temple; in vain does it send its tempest-tossed clouds even across the fertile valley. The great- god of the Nile, whom the Egyptians worshipped,. and before whom the ignorant Arab still kneels n blind awe, interposes bis power, and from the sacred mountains beyond, a higher voice is heard : So far shalt thou go, aud no farther !" The length ofthe Sahara is thus nearly sis hundred acd eighty geographical miles, but its breadth differs, especially towards the Red Sea ; "". it covers, with its dread and dismal terrors, a space much larger than two-thirds of all Eu- . rope. Exploration o.- tub Nile.^-TIio new expedition to the head waters ofthe Nile, under the command of the French Count d'E.cayrac de Lau- ture, and under fhe protection and auspices of Siad Pasha, promises to exceed all similar projects hitherto set on foot. At Vienna twelve officers of the Austrian general staff expressed their willingness to join the expedition, from which number, three were selected, who, together with the mineralogist, Mayer, recently in the Dutch Government in Borneo, made up the complement of Germans iu the expedition. The whole force will comprise twelve Europeans, besides the leader, and 300 soldiers furnished by the Egyptian. Government. Among these latter, who are pria- cipally natives from the interior of Africa, there are supposed to be a sufficiency of interpreters.. For the navigation of the Nile tho expedition has thirty barks and two small steamers, with a crew of one hundred men, besides tho necessary men aud meaus to continue tb. journey by land beyond the head of navigation. Never before wa_ a- scientific expedition fitted out in like manner. The expedition will leave Europe on the 10th; ofSeptetnber, Count d'Escayrac, with the Germans, embarking at Triste, and the French expeditionists at Marseilles. The entire party will meet at Alexandria and expect to reach Ohartoum by December, where tbey wiil remain some time to complete the organization.—N. Y. Evening Post. .
