■ PHANTOM WHISPERS. Hours of loneliness un numbered, Mine decreed, the Fates have sealed, While to eyes that never slumbered, Stand;* tiie naked soul revealed. Here are none to sooth my anguish, None to count the sighs I heave ; Thus on Time's gray shores I languish, And o'er sad memorials grieve. Through the silent dusky doorway, Creeping phantoms, one by one, Stealing in, in ghostly array. Flit around nw chill hearthstone. Mingling their sepulchral whispers Taunt me with tbe wasted hours, With tbem come two tiny lispers In iheir pale hands clasping flowera. Tti*ese thev strive to weave in garlands, For the mourner's throbbing brow ; Hut tbe blo-ssoms plucked iu far land3,.- Earth airs quickly wither now— And tbey fall as dead as ashes On the stone my tears have worn ; So, the wretched human dashes Hopes that e'en of heaven are born. Hopes with gleams of consolation Flickering through the sombre gloom, Through the brooding desolation Show the dwellers of tho tomb. Haunting faee.-i dimly shaded, With long tresses, gulden hued, Earnest cye.J that early faded Quenched in death, with tears bedewed : Glancing fond with tenderest meaning, Beckon me with them to go ; And, on spirit-bO-onis leaning, Sleep from every sense of woo. In tbe cold realms of obstruction, Fold the careless hands from toil; Let tho spheres reel to destruction, Quit the warfare, spurn the toil. Lift the veil that shrouds the Isis, Grasp tbe mystery, 'tis thine ; All that is. must bo, and right is, Snatch the cup and drain the wine. In that deep oblivion's quiet Dreamless' years shall onward roll, Cycling ages vainly riot, O'er thy still unconscious soul. « Sleep—forget—thy cares arc banished With the close of life's dull lore." Slowlv, then, the phantoms vanishe <_ Vanished tlu-oueh the dusky door. Tes, they have the truth outspoken ! Time is palsy-struck with age ; My life's golden bowl is broken, Blot my name from off the page. But the little angel lispers With soft wings, as white as snow, Folded me,.with tearful whispers, Murmur ring, " Mother do not go." Like in tub West.—A Yankee traveler who, ■aw the live hoosicr, has again written to his mother. "Western people (says he) go tbeir death on etiquette. You can't tell a man here that ho lies, as you can down East, without fighting. A few days ago, a man was telling two of his neighbors in my -tearing a pretty large story. Says I. *' stranger that's a whappcr!" Says be, " lay there, stranger." And in the twinkling of an eye I found myself in the ditch, the worse for wear and tear. Upon another occasion, says I jto a man I never saw before, as a woman passed: "That isn't a specimen of your western women I should think ? Says be, " You are afraid of fever and ague, ain't you V "Very much," says I. "Well," replied he, "that lady is my wife, and if you dout apologize in two minutes, by tbe honor of a gentleman, I swear that these two pistols (wbich he held cocked in his hand) shall cure you of that disorder entirely—so don't fear stranger! So I knelt down and politely apologized. I admire this western country much; but curse rae if I can stand so much etiquette ; it always takes me so unawares." Anecdote of Franklin.—It is stated of Dr, Franklin, that when bo was last in London, he was walking oue day with a pair of spectacles on, belonging to a friend. He kept them on, pretending they would help his eyes. Passing along, a porter ran against him. " D—n your spectacles," said the fellow; whereupon, the Doctor, laughing heartily, said: "TJicre, my friend, you see what I said was true—for if I had not had the spectacles on, he would have d—d my eyes I" To win the maid the poet tries, And sometimes writes to Julia'3 eyes; She likes a verse—but, cruel whim, She still appears a-vers. to him.—[Punch. Johnny, my son, do you know that you have broken tbe Sabbath ? "Yes, daddy, said his little sister, and mammy's big iron pot, in five or six pieces." The following answer was made to a young lady who bad sent her lover a kiss—in a letter : Thanks to my little absent friend—• A kiss you in my letter send, But, ah ! the thrilling charm is lost Iu kisses that arrive by post; Such fruit can only tasteful be, When gathered, melting, from the tree ! Thi Great Eastern Steamship.—The largest v.isel ever built since Noah's time is to be launched in England about the middle or next April. Her first trip will b*. to Portland, Me., "where wharfs for her accommodation arc now being built. Significant.—Fremont received but 18,000 votes in New York city out of 80,001) cast, notwithstanding the Herald, Tribune, Times, Courier and Evening Post sustained his election. Newspaper Manta.—There are published in San Francisco twenty •nine newspapers—fourteen dailies and lifteen weeklies, and one monthly magazine ; and the number increases weekly. Gov. BifiLRtt.—Ex Gov. John Bigler returned to California ou tiie steamer Orizaba. Hon. S. A. Douglass, of Illinois, was married at Washington city, Nov. 20, to Miss Ada Cutts, of tbat place. Three American steamboats are now navigating the rivers La Plftia and.Paru-ia, in South America. Mrs. Thorn, of _-ah._J.i-0, Michigan, hung herself and ohild'j-e.ause her husband refused to take ber to a ball. C ran berries are offered in abundance at Wheeling at lifteen cents per quart. We havo intelligence from Kausas to the effect that thirty-nine of the Free State prisoners at Le- ■comptou effected their escape, without committm- any vi. leuce, on the night of the 22d ult Post Offices and Post Masters in California.

Corner of Melius Row, Los Angeles. aug 9 The Child and the Sitnht-nm. I saw a youthful mother, Once on a summer's day, Set down her smiling infant, To watch its frolic play. It gamboled on the flowers That docked the carpet o'er, And seemed with childish wonder Each object to explore. A something on the instant Its glad cureer arrests ; And earnestly it gazes where A golden sunbeam rests ; While on the new found glory It fixed its wandering eyes, And trustfully reached forth its hands, To seize the glittering prize. And now its tiny fingers clasp The treasure rich and rare, Wliich in its baby innocence, It surely thought was there ; But ah ! that h.iii.d uncloses, And to its earnest gaze, Reveals no gem of beauty— Nor bright imprisoned rays.

These moments are hallowed by smiles aud by tears, The fifst look of love and last parting given ; As the sun in the dawn of his gloi-y appears, And the cloud weeps and glows with the rainbow in heaven. There are hours, there are minutes, whieh memory brings, Like blossoms of Eden, to twine round the heart; And as time rushes by on the might of his wings, They nifty darken awhile, but they never depart. O, these hallowed rcinenibi*anccs cannot decay, But they come on the soul with a magical thrill, And the days that are darkest, they kindly will stay, And the lieart in its last throb will beat with them f-tiU- They come, like tite dawn in its loveliness hoW, The same look of beauty that went to my soul; The snows of the mountain are bleach'd on her brow And ber eyes in the blue of the firmament roll; The roses are dim by her cheek's living bloom, ^ And her coral lips part, like the opening of flow rs She moves through the air In a cloud of perfume, Like the winds from tho blossoms of jessamine bowers. From her cvos melting a/.ure, there sparkles a flame, That kindled my young hlood to ecstasy's glow; She speaks—and the tones of her voice are the same, As would once, like the wind harp, in melody flow. That touch, as her hand meets and mingles with mine, Shoots along to my heartwith magical thrill; 'TwaS a moment for earth too supremely divine, And while life lasts its sweetness shall cling to me still. We met—aud we drank from the crystaline well, That flows from the fountain of science above ; On the beauties of thought wo would silently dwell, Till we looked ;though we never were talking of love ; We purled—the tear glisten'd bright in her eye, And her trembling hand shook, as I dropped it- forever! 0, that moment will always be hovering by- Life may frown, but its lig.'t shall abandon me— never. A Graphic Picturk of Natoleon-.—The person. al appearance of Napoleon, in the last days or his power, is thus described by Lainartine, and will be interesting as coming Irom his pen, though we doubt very mnch its correctness : " The empire lias made him old before his time. Gratified ambition, satisfied pride, the delights of u palace, a luxurious table, a voluptuous couch, youthful wives, complaisant mistresses, long vigils, sleepless nights, divided between labor and festive pleasure, the habit of constant riding wliich made him corpulent,—all tended to deaden his limbs find enervate his faculties. An early obesity over- loadedhim with flesh. His cheeks, formerly streaked with muscle and hallowed by the working of genius, were broad, full, and overhanging, like thoBC of Otho in the Roman medals of the empire. An excess of bile mingling with the hlood, gave a yellow tint to the skin, which at a distance, looked like a Tarnish of pale gold on his countenance. His lips still preserved their Grecian outline and steady grace, passing easily from a smile to a 1 menace. His solid bony chin formed an appropriate base to his features. His nose was but a line, thin and transparent. The paleness of his cheeks added greater brilliancy to the blue of his eyes. His look was searching and as unsteady and wavering as a flame—au emblem of inquietude. His forehead seemed to have widened from the scantiness of his thin black hair, which was falling from the moisture of continued thought. It might be said that his head, naturally small, had increased in size to give ample -Cope between his temples for the machinery and combination of a mind, every thought of which was an empire. The man of the world seemed to be encrusted on the orb of that reflective head. But it was beginning to yield; and he inclined it often on his breast, while crossing his arms like Frederick the Great—an attitude aud gesture which he appeared to affect. Unable any longer to seduce his courtiers and his soldiers by the charm of youth, it was evident he wished to fascinate them by the rough, pensive and disdain ful character of himself —of his model iu his latter days. He moulded himself, as it were, into the statute of reflection, before his troops, who gave him the nickname of Father Thoughtful. He assumed the pose of destiny. Something rough, rude and savage in his movements, revealed his -..nth.1'.} and insular origin. The man of the Aleditcranean broke out through the Frenchman. Hie nature, too great and powerful for the part he had to play, overflowed, on all CC-asicus. He bore no resemblance to the men around him. Superior and altogether different, he was an offspring of the sun, ot the sea, and of the battle fieid— out of his element even in his own element, even iu his own palace, and a stranger even in Sis own empire. Such was at this period the profile, the bust, and thu external physiognomy of Napoleon.1' JONAS G.

CI, ARK ,& GO,, ■ No. 128 Washington, street, au„ 30 gjjp F.auclBCO By bos .—Byron is in all respects 'the very op posite of Scat.. He never dreams of wholly giv ing up his mind to the influence of the actions of men, or the events of history. He lets the world roll on. and eyes its wide-weltering and tumultuous waves—even the calamitous shipwrecks that strew its darkness—with a stern, and sometimes even with a pitiless misanthrcphy. He cannot sympathize wilh the ordinary joys and sorrows of humanity, even though intense and overpowering- They must live and work in intellect and by intellect, before they seem worthy of the sympathy of his impenetrable soul. His idea of man, in the abstract, is boundless and maguificent, but ofmen- as individuals, he thinks with derision and contempt. Hence be is in one stanza a sublime moralist, elevated and transported by the dignity of human nature ; in the next a paltry satirist, sneering Bt its meanness. Hence he is, unwilling to yield love or reverence to anything that has yet lire; for life seems to sink the very little that is noble into the degradation of the much that is vili The dead, and the dead only, are the objects of his love; for death separates the dead from all connection, all intimacy with the living; and the memories ofthe great or good ,alone. live iu the past, which is a world of ashes. Byron looks back to tbe tombs of great men " that stand in assured rest," and gazing, as it were, on the bones of a more gigantic race, his imagination then teems with corresponding births, and ho holds converse with the mighty in language worthy to be heard by the spirits of the mighty, It is in this contrast between his august conceptions of man, and bis contemptuous opinion of men, that much of the almost incomprehensible charm, and power, and enchantment of his poetry exists. We feel ourselves alternately sunk and elevated, as if the hand of an invisible being had command over us. At one time we are a little lower than the angels ; in another but little higher than the worms. We feel that our elevation and disgrace are alike the lot of our nature ; and hence the poetry of Byron, as we before remarked, is read as a dark, but still a, divine revelation.—Professor Wilsoa's Essays, Joun Buntan's Flutb,—The flute with wliich John Buuyan beguiled the tediousness of his cap. tivehours, is now iu the possession of Mr. Howells, tailor, Gainsborough. In appearance it does not look unlike the leg of a stool—out of which it is said that Bunyan, while iu prison, manufactured it. When the turnkey, attracted by the sound of music, entered his cell to ascertain, if possible the cause of the harmony, the flute was replaced in the stool, and by this means detection was avoided. Hapniuess is not promised to the learned, bu,t jto t.hego.od. The great truths are the simplest, &nd so .are the greatest incji. SriiYCiixisn Anat,y/.f.d.—The drug which has lately become so notorious Ibr destroying the lives of human beings—as iu the case of the infamous Dr. Palmer, recently executed iu England—is a most deadly organic poison. A dog has been killed wilh the sixth part of a grain of it, and a human being with less. When introduced into the stomach it acts with fearful energy, causing lockjaw immediately, violent spasms, and death iu a few minutes. It is oderless, but so intensely bitter as to be perceptible to taste eyen when one part is diluted in a million parts of water. The composition strychnia is carbon forty-four, hydrogen twenty-four, oxygen four, nitrogen two equivalents. It is colorless, and forms crystalizabl'e salts. It is an alkaline base, and extracted principally from the strychnox nux vomica. The tree from which it is obtained is of moderate size, and grows in several parts of the East Indies and the Island of Ceylon. Its fruits are large orange- colored berries, the pulp of which is the favorite of many birds. The seed coutains the deadly poison. They are flat and round, about an inch in diameter, and grey in color. These seeds were used as medicine and as a poison by the Hindoo-, long before they were known in Europe. Many of the natives of Hindostan often uBe it as people use opium. They commence with taking the eighth of a nut every day, and gradually increase their allowance.to an entire nut, which would be about twenty grains. If they eat it directly before or after food, no unpleasant effects are produced ; but if they neglect this precaution, spasms are the result. The bark of the tree is also poisonous. and from its resemblance to Augustura or Cuspa- ria bark, a tonic medicine imported from South America, caused a deal of alarm and excitement iu Germany, in the early part ot this century, by being mixed with that bark. No sure antidote has yet been discovered lor this poison, but some chemists have attained to great skill in detecting it when administered as a poison. WisH-NGTON'S Faiiewell Address.—Will*, respect to his (Washington's) Farewell Address, to the authorship of which, it seems, there are conflicting claims, writes Mr. Jefferson to Judge Johnson, lean state to you some facts. He had determined to decline a re-election at the eud of his first term, aud so far determined that he had re- qu.sted Mr. Madison to prepare for him something valedictory, to be addressed to his constituents ou his retirement. This was done ; but he was finally persuaded to acquiesce in a second election, to which no oue more strenuously pressed him thau myself, from a conviction of the importance of strengthening, by longer habit, the great respect for that office, which the weight of his character alone could effect. When, at the end of his second term, his valedictory came out, Mr. Madison recognized in it several passages of his draught. Several others, we were both satisfied, were from tha peu of Hamilton, and others from that of the President himself. These he probably put into the hands of Hainilton to form iuto a whole, hence it may all appear .# Ifamilton's handwriting, as if it were .^11 of his composition. Curious Dying Suknks.—Accurdiii_ to Fielding, Jonathan Walk picked t';e pocket of the ordinary while he was exhorting him in the cart, and went out of the world with the par_oa'_ cork screw and thumb bottle in his hand. Petrontus, who was master of ceremonies and inventor of plr.amires at the Court of Nero, when he saw that elegant indulgence was giving placo to coarse debauchery, perceived at once that his turn of favor had arrived, and it wan lime to die. He resolved, therefore, to anticipate the tyrant, and to disrobe death of his paraphernalia of terror. Accordingly, he entered a warm bath, and opened hia veins, composed verses, jested with his familiar associates, and died oil'by insensible d.greea. Democritus, the laughing philosopher, disliking the inconveniences and iutii milieu ot a protracted old age, made up his mind to die on a certain dity ; but to oblige his sister, he postponed Inn departure until three feats of Ceres were over. He supported nature on a pot of honey to the appointed hour, and theu expired by arrangement. James Garden, a celebrated Italian phynicinn, starved himself gradually, and calculated with such mathamatical nicety, as to hit the very day and hour foretold. When Rabelais was dying, the Cardinal nent a page to inquire how he was. Rabelais joked with the envoy until he found his strength declining, and hi. last moments approaching. He then nail], " Tell his eminence the state in which you left mo. I am going to inquire into a great possibility. He iti iii a finug nest; let, him stay there an long as ho can. Draw the curtain ; the farce is over." When the famous Count de Grammont wan reported to he in extremity, the King, Louis XIV., being told of his total want of religious feeling. which shocked him not a little, sent the Marqui* de Dangeau to beg of him. for the credit of the court, to die like a good Christian. He was scarcely able to speak, but turning round to Iilh countess, who had always been remarkahle for her piety, he said, with a smile. "Countess, take care, or Dangeau will filch frem you the credit of my conversion." PitESriifiXTiAi,— In 1825. when Andrew Jackson, Jolm Quincy Adams, William II. Crawford and Henry Clay were candidates for the Presidency, neither received at the hands of the electors a majority ofthe Vot-M cast. I» consequence ofthe failure of the electors to designate a .'resident, the first three named candidates were thrown into th. House of Represematives, and the votes of IS States were given for John Quiucy Adams, tlie votes of 7 States for Andrew Jackson, and the votes of 4 States for Wm. H. Crawford. John 4 Quincy Adam.*-*, thus elected President, took the oath ot office and entered upon its duties ou tha| 4th of March, 1S25. This is uot the only instance1, on record of a Presidential election being thrown, into the House of Representatives. The electoral vote for Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr being equal (73 votes each) no choice was made by the people, and the HouBe of Representatives pio- ceeded ou February 11, 1801, in the manner prescribed by the Constitution, to the choice of a President ofthe United States. On-the first 1ml-1 lot 8 States voted for Thomas Jefferson, oi Virginia, 6 States voted for Aaron Burr, of New York, and the votes of 2 States were divided. The balloting continued until Februaiy 17, when on the 3Gth ballot the votes of 10 States were given Tor Thomas Jefferson, of Virginia, the votes ofi States for Aaron Burr, of New York, and the votes of 2 States iu blank. Artistical Humruggery.—Speak tlie truth anil. somebody is sure to be indignant Praise auy thing and everybody, and yon will be sure to pass for an amiable character. Sugar aud soap are the only kind of mental groceries that seem to be popular with all classes. Tombstone criticism is the only kind of commentary on men's actions aud example that wins the universal approbation. Now it happens that while we esteem both soap and sugar in their way, and conceive them to be excellent things at need, we are unable to persuade ourselves that nothing else is necessary in thi9 world to ensure success. Actors aud aclres-CB, opera-singers and Ethiopean minstrels, .daiieem^ posturers, clowns in the ring aud clowns out of it, are among those who will never agree with us in this particular, and we never expect it. You must not allude to them except in terms of eulogy, unless you wish to earn their immortal dislike ; and however indifferent each may be to au artist, each must be spoken of, generally, as surpassing all tho world besides, if you would escape thu faiiUle.s one's anathema. A Solemn Thought.—It has been observed with much significance, that every morning we enter on a new day, carrying still an unknown futur. in its- bosom. How pregnant and stirring the reflection I Thoughts may be born to-day which may never be extinguished. Hopes may be excited to day, which maynever expire. Acts may be performed, the consequence of which may not be realized till eternity. Simple Truths.—It is not what people eat, but what they digest, that makes them strong. It is not what they gain, but what they save that makes them rich. It is not what they profess, but what they practise that makes them righteous. These are very plain and important truths, too little heeded by gluttons, spendthrifts, bookworms and hypocrites. _____^ Ignorance.—'• Nothing (says Montaigne) is go- firmly believed as that whieh we least know."" Plato said, " It was more easy to satissty his hearers with discourses about the nature ofthe gods: than of men ;" and the ever-euduring Shakspeare describes the empty man in one line : " Most ignorant of what he's most assured. Watch for little opportunities of pleasing, and J«p«£ ^ J -. put little auuoyau.e*-*-put Qt the way. |VUV1/ ' *- True.—People who suppose tbat a good prayer is preferred to a good act, doubtless imagine that God has more hearing that eye sight. The end, we fear, will show that they reasoned from false premises. The poor are ofteuer prayed f.r thaa helped. The reason is, we believe, that breath is ___ -»*'.

Hours of loneliness un numbered,
Mine decreed, the Fates have sealed,
While to eyes that never slumbered,
Stand;* tiie naked soul revealed.
Here are none to sooth my anguish,
None to count the sighs I heave ;
Thus on Time's gray shores I languish,
And o'er sad memorials grieve.
Through the silent dusky doorway,
Creeping phantoms, one by one,
Stealing in, in ghostly array.
Flit around nw chill hearthstone.
Mingling their sepulchral whispers
Taunt me with tbe wasted hours,
With tbem come two tiny lispers
In iheir pale hands clasping flowera.
Tti*ese thev strive to weave in garlands,
For the mourner's throbbing brow ;
Hut tbe blo-ssoms plucked iu far land3,.-
Earth airs quickly wither now—
And tbey fall as dead as ashes
On the stone my tears have worn ;
So, the wretched human dashes
Hopes that e'en of heaven are born.
Hopes with gleams of consolation
Flickering through the sombre gloom,
Through the brooding desolation
Show the dwellers of tho tomb.
Haunting faee.-i dimly shaded,
With long tresses, gulden hued,
Earnest cye.J that early faded
Quenched in death, with tears bedewed :
Glancing fond with tenderest meaning,
Beckon me with them to go ;
And, on spirit-bO-onis leaning,
Sleep from every sense of woo.
In tbe cold realms of obstruction,
Fold the careless hands from toil;
Let tho spheres reel to destruction,
Quit the warfare, spurn the toil.
Lift the veil that shrouds the Isis,
Grasp tbe mystery, 'tis thine ;
All that is. must bo, and right is,
Snatch the cup and drain the wine.
In that deep oblivion's quiet
Dreamless' years shall onward roll,
Cycling ages vainly riot,
O'er thy still unconscious soul.
« Sleep—forget—thy cares arc banished
With the close of life's dull lore."
Slowlv, then, the phantoms vanishe <_
Vanished tlu-oueh the dusky door.
Tes, they have the truth outspoken !
Time is palsy-struck with age ;
My life's golden bowl is broken,
Blot my name from off the page.
But the little angel lispers
With soft wings, as white as snow,
Folded me,.with tearful whispers,
Murmur ring, " Mother do not go."
Like in tub West.—A Yankee traveler who,
■aw the live hoosicr, has again written to his mother.
"Western people (says he) go tbeir death on etiquette. You can't tell a man here that ho lies, as
you can down East, without fighting. A few days
ago, a man was telling two of his neighbors in my
-tearing a pretty large story.
Says I. *' stranger that's a whappcr!"
Says be, " lay there, stranger."
And in the twinkling of an eye I found myself in
the ditch, the worse for wear and tear.
Upon another occasion, says I jto a man I never
saw before, as a woman passed:
"That isn't a specimen of your western women I
should think ?
Says be, " You are afraid of fever and ague, ain't
"Very much," says I.
"Well," replied he, "that lady is my wife, and
if you dout apologize in two minutes, by tbe honor
of a gentleman, I swear that these two pistols (wbich
he held cocked in his hand) shall cure you of that
disorder entirely—so don't fear stranger!
So I knelt down and politely apologized.
I admire this western country much; but curse
rae if I can stand so much etiquette ; it always takes
me so unawares."
Anecdote of Franklin.—It is stated of Dr,
Franklin, that when bo was last in London, he was
walking oue day with a pair of spectacles on, belonging to a friend. He kept them on, pretending
they would help his eyes. Passing along, a porter
ran against him. " D—n your spectacles," said the
fellow; whereupon, the Doctor, laughing heartily,
said: "TJicre, my friend, you see what I said was
true—for if I had not had the spectacles on, he
would have d—d my eyes I"
