To o'er eo me earth's gross resistance, Comprehend affinity, Spurn this bounded, brief existence, Longs to stretch her wings in flight, Like the sea-bird, wild with motion. Miirhty longing day and night— iii'l. no peace is on the ocean. Erom the world of verdure parted. Sheltering rock and water clear, Now we wander, heavy-hearied. O'er the desert lone and drear. Here no streamlet hiughs to meet us, Here no blushing blossom charms, And no swaying tree to greet us, Spreads its broad inviting arms, Here the sun sinks red and haggard, Weary wastes of sand to meet, And night's rest comes like a laggard To the patient camel's feet. Then the bright stars burn and glisten Diamond like, with living fire, And tho desert seems to listen To thebhininc heavenly choir. Hushed and waiting, but not hearing, List we too, with straining eye. In the beating silence fearing Lest, the heart should throb too high. Creeping o*er thi desert lonely, With her watchtul eves of light, There U breathless terror only In the stiliuess of the night. No sweet, dew drops: from her lingers, No content, comes with the dawn ; So the wandering Arab lingers Rut a moment, and is gone. Traveling toward the western mountains, Throimh the forest and the vale, Passing hamlets, groves, aud iouutaiiis, Rivers white wilh ninny a sail; Frnm the noise of'cities going, Erom the sound of village bells, Busy wheel and mill stream flowing With a murmur through tbe dells ; Pa-sing where the lithe corn swaying, Noels and bends and nods again, Where the light and shadow playing, Run across the fields of grain ; Leaving eastern homes behind us, Joys of life and liie of cure. Here no care, no joy shall bind us, Restless freedom everywhere! Lo ! the western sky bends o'er us, Aud the Prairie is before us! Lo! the Prairie proudly sweeping! Lo! the Prairie wide and still! Where the stealthy breezes creeping, Woo tbe bright-eyed fl >wers at will; Where the grass, a moment parting, Closes o'er the foot-track light, And the grey-winged birds ups ealing Elash before us in their flight; Where, with fluttering wing bespangled Fliis the fickle butterfly, And among the vines entangled, Rosy red the berries lie. But with fairer green beguiling, Spreads the distance, far and wide, And the charms around us smiling, In its velvet verdure hide. By the distant promise cheated, Seeking contentment here. Disappointed and defeated, Roams ihe restless pioneer; From the nearer beauty turning. For the greener distance yearning. Oh! the mighty Prairie! stretching Like a green and sileut sea, Yast and awful in its reaching, Vague as far futurity. Vast! the swelling mind to fill it Struggles vainly to be free ; Vague! press down your heart and still it, Aching with its mystery.

The desert lone, the prairie and the sea. Are fraught with deep and solemn mystery. Oh ! dearer far the green slope ofthe" bill. The forest dim, the valley sweet and still. The daisied fields, lhe dark entangled brake, The rolling river and the limpid lake, The proud old cliff-, where bright the star-flowers grow, The clear stream whispering in the shade below. As turns the wild bird to her sheltered nest, We seek thee, mountain homes, for peace and rest : Thou art the nursery ofthe mighty free, The home of nature's great nobility ; And calm content;, as pure as earth can bring, Broods o'er thee, like a gentle angel's wing. So Scotia's children, wise, and great, and good, Love well their rugged hills aud swelling dood ; And Switzer's sous rejoice indeed to dwell Where mountain bulwarks shield and guard them well. And in our own thrice blest and happy land, Would'st learu where nature clasps her friendly hand With thine in confidence and kindest mood? Oh i come with me to mountain solitude ; To yon green hills, crowned with the taeselled pine, Where violets bloom and cascades Hash and shine. Deep in the valley, sileut and secure, A silver mirror, crystaUike and pure. Girdled with mountains, bearing on thy breast Islets of green, in calm, unbroken rest; Wo hail thee, smiling iu thy sweet content, Fairest ot lakes—Lake George—St. Sacrament. How radiant art thou when returning day Comes o'er the eastern hills in bright array, Aud softly melts the mountain mists away ; liut lovlier when the gentle evening glides In shadowy robe down the grey mountain's sides, 1 Over the water, through the valley trips, Kisses the flowerets with her dewy lips, u a communication to the Aa- tional Intelligencer, gives some curious information in regard to the various names which were applied to the American continent during its early history. The first name under which North America became known in Europa (or one portion of it at least) was that of "Wine Land." which was applied by the Northmen ; but this name, with the discoveries of the Northmen, was soon forgotten. The Brst designation which appeared on a map was in 1808, when La Costa, a Spaniard, published it as tho " Sea (or coast) discovered by Englishmen." It was so named from the fact that Sebastian Cabot (in 1497) was the first man after the Northmen to sail along the coast of'North America. Newfoundland and its vicinity was subsequently called '■ Uaecalaos," by theBiscayan fishermen who frequently visited it. from the principal product which it yielded—the codfish—which in the Biscay an language is called bacca/aos. Sometimes the titleRegiones Bacca- leorum—Codfish Regions—was given to a vast tract of North America, if not tho whole, and may be considered the first name under wliich a great part of the continent became known to Europe. The Spaniards commenced their discovery of North America with what Ponce de Leon in 1512 called Florida. The Spanish geographers gave it fanciful names, some designating it as Terra de Cuba, the mainland of Cuba, and others Paria. The latter term was properly the name which was first given after tho second toyage of Columbus (141)8) to that part of South America which he discovered. The name Paria was applied, probably, in the belief that North aud South America were one connected continent, and ought thereto: e to bear the same name. It lasted a long time, until the magnitude ofthe two continents was properly recognized, and unitl the geographers learned that they ought to have distinct names. Many thought it was all one group of large and small islands, and hence the early general designaiions were such as *■- The newly four-d island, and countries," "The New World," "The New Siihere," ■'The West Indies." "The Indies of Occident," or " Tho New Indies," " The Fourth Part of the World," &e. Of the name "America," Mr. Kohl says : Towards the year 1520 the name America was introduced in books and maps. Humboldt has given us the history of this name, and has shown that at first a German cosmographer, in one of his books, uttered the opinion that tha New World could very appropriately be ealled America, because Amerigo Vespucci had written so much about it, and had also so much merit in its better discovery. This proposition found applause in Germany, tlie Netherlands and vicinity, and after the year 1520 we find that name down on many maps, sometimes written America, sometimes Ameria, America Provincia, (the Province America,} or also the New World America. The name is, however, for a long time exclusively given to South America, which was first circumnavigated all round, and which was first recognized to be an entire continental piece of land by itself, since the expeditions to Peru and Chile, after 1530." The extent and geographical character of North America were not ascertained until a much a later date. Many thought it was joined to Asia, aud was only a large peninsula, and on many maps the names ''Asia" or "India Superior" were applied to Asia and the whole of North America, except Florida and Mexico. Cortez himself, in his progress northward from Mexico, expected to *all in with Upper India and China. When the true character of the continent was discovered, the names applied to it varied with the nationalities and theories ofthe map makers. The French, who had made great discoveries in North America during the sixteenth century, attempted to affix to it the appellation, " La Nacelle Fiance" (New France:) and the French geographer and historian, Thevet, called South America " La France Antarctiqtie." The Spaniards, with equal ambition, endeavored to make tlieir famous names of Mexico and Peru still moro celebrated and comprehensive by stretching them over the two continents. Numerous Spanish maps call the whole Of South America El Peru and North America Mexico or Nova Spagna (New Spain). Even at the close of the sixteenth century, wdieu the name "America " had become familiar to the Spaniards, they applied the title America Peruvana (the Peruvian America) to South America, and America Mexicana to North America. Sometimes they distinguished the two continents by calling the southern America, and the northern Nova Spagna. The Spaniards also extended their name Florida over the whole continent. The English endeavored to give the name "Virginia" to North America. It is a fine name, and would have been a euphonious and handy title for the country. There are scarcely auy maps before tiu; year 1750 in which the name America is applied to North America. The writer says : Tlie I-lne of Battle Slil|i Peimsylinnln. We see it stated that there is some probability Ebat ibis magnificent vessel will yet be turned to* some more valuable use than that of receiving ship at Norfolk. It is proposed to cut off her upper deck, lengthen her and convert her into a propeller. The Pennsylvania, though not the longest, is the most spacious ship in our service, has the largest armament, and requires a larger number of mon to mau her. She can carry six mouths' provisions and water for twelve hundred men. This war ship, the largest in J/he world, was built at an immense expense, and launched twenty- one years ago at Philadelphia, with great parade and in the presence of all the high dignitaries of the country. She made the passage to N.rfolk, and there she has been ever elnce, of no use to the country whatever, except as a receiving sh p. Had' shebeen put afloat twenty years previously, she might have been regarded as monarch of the seas,- for neither at Trafalgar, Aboukir, or Copenhagen, was thero a vessel that was anywhere near her equal in strength, number of guns, or weight of metal. But ocean steam navigation, by becoming practical, rendered her practically useless. Railroad bom Sun PiiukUco to Stockton. The Stockton Republican says:—" Letters received in this city from London by the last steamer, give ffattcring accounts of the early commencement of the work on the Stockton and San Francisco railroad. The project is in the hands of the English railroad capitalists. The next steamer will probably bring us something definite in regard to it." Extracts from a Modem Dictionary.
