THE WIL L. O XV .
O willow, why for ever weep,
As one who mourns an endless wrong ?
What hidden woe can lie so deep?
What utter grief can last so long ?
The Spring makes haste with step elate
Tour life and beauty to renew;
She even bids the roses wait,
And gives her first t weet care to yon.
The welcome redbreast folds bis wing
To pour for yon his freshest strain;
To you the earliest bluebirds sing,
Till all your light stems thrill again.
The sparrow trills his wedding song
And trusts his tender brood to you;
Fair flowering vines the summer long,
With clasp and kiss your beauty woo.
The sunshine drapes your limbs with light,
The rain braids diamonds in your hair,
The breeze makes love to you at night—
Yet still you droop, and still despair.
Beneath your'boughs, at fall of dew.
By lovers’ lips is softly told
The tale that all the ages through
Has kept the world from growing old.
But still, though April's buds unfold.
Or Summer sets the earth aleaf.
Or Autumn pranks your robes with gold,
You syray and sigh in graceful grief.
Mourn on forever, unconsoled.
And keep your secret,, faithful tree I
‘No heart iu all the world can hold
A sweeter grace than constancy.
ESSAY ON EDUCATION
, BY P. JEHU MALOKE.
, m CAPS, and
The universal right of suffrage has been
the boast of Republicanism. Whether guar
anteed by the Constitution or left to the ac
tion of the State laws, it is a right of which
our respectable citizens—and I use the word
respectable in contradistinction io all mental
qualifications—have never been sfyown. In
saying that “the Constitution guaranteed the.
elective franchise to all citizens.” I simply
inferred that the Constitution was not inimi
cal to the enjoyment of these rights indis
criminately by all, whether they were in
tellectually qualified for a judicious exercise
.of the privilege or not; and as I was writing
upon the subject of education, any construc
tion placed upon my language looking for
ward to the exclusive matter of politics is to
tally irrelevant to the point under considera
tion. I would also inform “Citizen” that
my remarks have a retrospective reference.
It has been premised in all ages that the
end of moral endeavour is character. How
ever foreign this may be to the received
opinions of the present day, I state it as the
summary results of the highest investigation,
and challenge its controversion upon any
reasonable ground. The idea that the ac-'
cumulation of grei* wealth is wholly neces
sary to the consummation of the best political
measurer and expediencies is but a pitiable
myth, to say the least. Have we not illus
trations of the fallacy of such opinions in
multitudinous instances? Look to Webster
and McDuffie, our own illustrious statesmen;
the great Napoleon “with no friend but his
sword,” from whose glance competition fled,
and the, tread of whose armies made
the world tremble; and lastly the renowned
Victo Hugo whose sarcastic pen awed
France as much as the “magnificently stern
array” of Wellington's serried hosts. Arc’
there not monuments of political greatness
beyond the creations of money or its boasted
influence ? I would be understood as de
claiming spacifically against the current be
lief in the omnipotence of wealth. The
good advantages, politically and socially,
accruing from a wise and just distribution of
affiuentiol resources, arc too austensible to be
overlooked by even the most cynical cas
uists ; but it must be admitted that there is
no instrument of power so liable to perver
sion, none that will corrupt so readily.
The bane of our country has been the par
amount importance attached to the acquisi
tion ol money and the circumscribed esti
mate placed upon &ome good .system of gen
eral education —a manifest want of apprecia
tion of the benefits that would crown socie
ty from a just spirit of liberality. What was
the result ? Excess of tashion, and disgust
ing pride; dissolution on the one hand and
squalid mendicity on, the other, and I am not
a little inaccurate if we have not more stu
pendous results. Take the College life of the
mass of the wealthy young men for example.
They leave hodie with the reputation of both
prestige and opulence—pass their halcyon
days m sports—become connoisseurs in re
dowa, schottisclie, polka, and mazurka—
have no taste I'or the sentiments expressed in
that trite old maxim: “ Gutta cavit lapideur
non vi,” &c., because its intimates something
about strenuous application; and hence,
their career terminates in expulsion with all
its attendant shame. Immediately “Indul
gence” determines that they shall see the
world, and thereupon their debut is made in
Paris as tourists. They gaze with ghastly
surprise upon the mostrosities everywhere
presented to view in these places of popular
resorts; see everything and understand no
thing ; and returning, recour tthe sights they
have seen and the sounds* tney have heard
in a strain of grandiloquent egotism and
bragadocia, expatiating with delectable non
chalance upon their geneological precedence,
until you would fancy that their lineage dates
back lo the years beyond the flood. With
bacchanal sneer and vulgar phraseology they
—“around the comer”—cast siguifleaut hints
about certain families “want of respectability
because they are low bred” and ogling, and the
extreme oi sensualism become their employ
ment while the ineffable scorn of pride and
decency is the estimation in which they are
held. Ido not purpose aninadverting upon
the many derelictions of duty manifest in the
past history of our national life, or venting
anathemas against those who endeavored to
play a conspiciou9 partin the drama to the
exclusion of all who could not so plausibly
establish their claims to relationship with
the illustrious paragons who had played be
fore th6m. It is a truth patent to every one,
and something that requires the promptest
and most thorough remedial action. We
must learn to estimate persons by their own
intrinsic worth, rather than by the loud sound
ings of wealth or hereditary prestige. Must

A Horrible ft’ate-A 3J«n Bitten by « R at _
[ From the Duouque limes.
One of the most horrible deaths possible
for a man to meet, is awaiting Mr. Jacob
Shuester, a farmer near Waupaton, in ■ this
county, who was bitten by a rattlesnake
last Saturday. Mr. Shuester was in a field
mowing hay, when he came upon the snake
and it attempted to draw away. He cut it
in two with his sithe, and as it still gave
signs of life, he severed it again within three
inches of its head. It then seemed to be
dead, and he stooped down to qxamine its
mouth. He was approaching its mouth with
his right baud, when the snake sprang and
and fastened itself to his right thumb. He
sprang to his feet, and, after several seconds,
succeeded in loosening its hold and flinging it
to the ground. The thumb pained him terribly,
and he ran to the house. It immediately
commenced swelling, and his agony in
Neighbors were sent for, who applied
remedies of which they had heard. But they
did no good, and in ten minutes Mr. Shues
ter commenced vomiting blood. AH the
remedies suggested by bis neighbors having
failed, they ‘doctored’ him until late Sunday
forenoon, when Dr. Staples, of this city, was
sent for. He arrived at the house, a distance
of twenty miles, Sunday evening. He fouad
Shuester in a horrible state of body and mind.
His right arm was swollen to four times its
natural size, and was nearly black. This
color had reached his breast, and was spread
ing over his system. Below the elbow the
poison had affected the arm so that its sur
face was covered with large blisters, which
were filled with blood. From one of these
the doctor drew nearly a teacup full of blood.
The palm of the sufferer’s hand, although
calloused by labor, was puffed out like a
sugar-loaf; and blood continually flowed
from the wounded thumb. Hia breath was
Mr. Shuester retains all his senses. Before
he was bitten he was a large well-built man,
and possessed great strength. He is now
haggard, as white as a sheet, and his eyes
are ghastly. •
Dr. S. administered powerful neutralizing
medicines, and Mr. Shuester felt somewhat
relieved almost immediately. The Doctor,
stayed with him all night, and left him at 10
o’clock yesterday morning, with slight hppes
of his recovery. When the Doctor left Mr.
Shuester complained of a feeling which was
then coming upon him for the first time—a
sort of benumbing yet painfully tingling sen
sation, which affected his whole body. He
was alive yesterday morning—since that time
we have not beard from him.
Mr. Shuester is a well-to-do farmer, and u
geuerally respected iu the community where
he lives. He has a wife and two small chil
dren, who are iu agony over his misfortune. ’
John Bright’s Oratory.— Mr. Bright
is very attractive as an orator. When
it is known that he is to speak the gal
leries are insufficient to hold the multitude
which gathers to hear him. His delivery is
prompt and easy. He has none of
that hesitation and apparent timidity which
mark the address of many English orators;
but neither, on the other hand, does he pos
sess that rich and fascinating intonation
which forces us to concede the forensic palm
to Mr. Gladstone of all contemporary Eng
lishmen. He expresses himself with bold
ness, sometimes almost with rudeness. His
declamation is fresh, vigorous, and almost al
ways even. At times be is unable to pre
serve the moderation of language and man
ner which retains the mastery over impulse;
his indignation carries him away; his de
nunciation becomes overwhelming; his foil
voice rings out, trembling with agitation, as
he exposes some wrongful or defends some
good measure ; then his vigorous nature ap
pears, unadorned by cultivated graces, but
admirable tor its manliness and strength-
This impetuosity, which is so prominent a
characteristic of his oratory, is in marked
contrast with the manner of the late Mr.
Cobden, his friend and co-operator. Mr.
Cobden was always guarded, cautious, and
studiously accurate in his language. Mr.
Bright often says things m the excitement of
controversy which exaggerate his real senti-
ments, and which may be used to misrepre
sent his opinions. Mr. Cobden, whose tem
perament was more phlegmatic, was careful
to avoid any undue heat of speech, and hence
often passed, erroneously, for a more moder
ate thinker than Mr. Bright.
