It is the biography of Finely Johnson, Esq., the ready-poet, off-hand raUroad-mayor-reecption-spcech-vuiker, the uni- versally-cut-and-dried essayist upon any sub ject, and the quasi author and contributor to twenty country newspapers. Mr. PSmUy John son advertises that he will write poetry (?) on any subject. But tliis short biography is appended to a por trait of the clever literary gentleman, which occupies about the space of a Mexican dollar. His biographer has learned to write almost in the laconic style of Julius Caesar. He says “his educational facilities were limited, and he only received a common English education.’' It does not say how far up the hill of science the young Roscius travelled, and wc might have been left to speculate at some length as to the acquirements of the famous young man, bnt in the next elegant sentence of the able biogra pher we are informed that “he was taken from school at eleven, and placed as clerk in a drug store.” We arc not informed whether Mr. Johnson ever went to school another day after lie commenced weighing out simple*, and learned to compound medicinos. /hr. Finley Johnson, it seems, then learned the simplicity of style which characterizes his writings, from his dexterity in weighing out simples. He learned the apoth ecaries weight so well, that he does not scru ple to attempt a composition upon any subject. In the very next sentence we are informed by the quaint historian that “in 1854 lie went to Texas, and was editor of The Western Texan, in San Antonio.” The reader is left to specu late vastly upon the dreadfully fine articles which appeared from time to time in the fa mous Western Texan, os no allusion is made of them or of the time he spent in Texas, but in the next sentence—the last but three of the illustrious biographer—we are startled by this announcement—“Taking sick with the yellow fever, he ^as sent home to die.” Alas, poor Finley; c^uld they not let you die in San An- re you had contracted the fell dis- f»en behold a vessel prepared by the '{kied friends and taken The True Editor. We respectfully beg leave to criticise the ar ticle of our townsman, Marcus A. Bell, which appears in another column, upon the sub ject of the “True Editor.” IVc acknowledge that Mr. Bell is a nice, genteel, smooth wri- Atlilta, (itwpt, Tharsdjy Imilg, Say 17, 1860. ter > but we think he has entirely mistaken the duties and callings of an editor. If we should follow his advice, we should be set up in our sanctum as a man of straw, or as an automa ton waiting to have a peal sounded upon us before we gave forth amp sound of our own. We should be careful to remain neutral upon every question, for fear that we might give of fence ; we should not praisej the building of Huggins for fear that Muggins might talk about us ; we ought never to speak of politi cal questions, for fear some quiet good man should call us fimatics. Mr. Bell would soon find himself an old woman in the sanctum, if he followed up his own advice. It may look very well upon paper, indeed, but his true ed itor would be better occupied with knitting- needles and blue yarn thread than with pen, paper and wafers. Our friend Bell is entirely behind the age, if he thinks the true editor ought to set up “like a dial, which quietly per forms its work, and never speaks at all.” It would be worse than an inquisition, to insist upon confining an editor in leading strings. As well might you try to keep the crowd from guished men, which accompany tbe work, thad applauding when such men as Alexander H. anchor weighed, and the gratelVnfy/isisp, “give3 its’ sides to the unfriendly brine,” and its sails td the wind, and away it flew till a small speemit gTew, and at last the noble ship faded entirely from the view of the San An tonians. It was a dreadful thing, but it could not be heljted. It was enough to draw the tears from an anchorite to see the editor of the MVj- f?rn Texan going home to die. But we shall not keep our readers in suspense, the noble Finley did r.ot die, as will appear from the next graphic nentcnce—the last but two in this •history: “Regaining his health he has since lived in Baltimore, principally engaged in writing for the press.” Finley has written so much, it seems, that his biographer had not time to enumerate his works. In the next gTand sentence we have “an ocean in a tear, a whirl wind in a sigh,” a volume in a word, an age in a moment, the trump of Fame in a katy-did' note, a locomotive encyclopepia of useful knowledge in a chapter. “Mr. Johnson has made quite a wide reputation as a writer, some of his pieces having been copied into the Eng lisli papers.” What a glorious thing it is for a man to “ sound every trump of Fame,” to fill both hemispheres “with the music of the spheres,” and to become great between the years of 1854 and I860, as we have no notice of his having been engaged in literary pursuits previous to tbe time of his sailing from an unknown port to San Antonio to become the editor of The Western Texan. The rapid rise of Lord Byron was nothing to compare with this. The head long advancement of “The Wizzard of the North” is not a circumstance, when we look upon Finley, “shot madly from his sphered His pieces being “copied into the English pa pers” is a sure proof, according to our histo rian, that he “has made quite a reputation as a writer.” We come now to the last sentence of the history, and, in taking leave of the sub ject, we shall resign it for abler pens than ours to enlarge upon and place this biography in its proper light before the public for whose good Mr. Johnson left off the measuring of liquid medicines to pour out greater quantities of liquid verse, and to scatter the sea with his pearls of thought and gems of the brain, from his unknown port of embarkation clear to San Antonio’s distant citadels. “ More recently Mr. Johnson has lived in New York, but has to Baltimore.” Here we have a slight oversight, or Vtpsus pennar of the able historian, who, ip baste to complete the sketch, had forgotten that he had distinctly said that, “regaining his health, he has since lived in Baltimore, principally engaged in writing for the press.” How t\e illustrious author of this famous sketch can harmonize these two conflicting passages we are at a loss 'to know. In reviewing tnis article, we find that we have made no remarks upon the first two sentences. The opening one states that “Finley Johnson was born 7th December, 182<J.” We are not informed where he was bora, or whether he was the son of old man Johnson or not, but we think he was, as in the next sentence we have it stated that “his fath er died in ISftft.” That our readers may have the benefit of the biography in a connected Style, we copy the entire article as follows: “ Finley Johnson was born 7th December, 1820. His father died in S2J. His educa tional facilities were limited, and be only re ceived a common English education. He was taken from school at eleven and placed as a clerk in a drag store. In 1854 he went to Texas, and was editor of “The Western Tex- San Antonio. Taking sick with the rwas sent home to die. Re- Stephens or Wm. L. Yancey, are speaking, as to put a curb upon an editor who has any gum in him. You might as well lay down the rule to lawyers, tjiaff they should not argue a bad case, because the community are against it, as to tell an <what kind of articles he ought to write. jM^gnly way to kill off the influ ence of aneditB is, not to road or wrtn*er4tae ’ to his paper. When yon do not wish to pat ronize a play, you do not go to the exhibition; when you desire to have a pastor turned out of his diocese, you tend your footsteps from his sanctuary. If our friend Bell were placed at- the head of a daily paper he would soon see the fallacy of his arguments. lie might get through with one issue with his temper, but he would soon see the sense of his third paragraph, which reads, “next to the sublime virtue of candid goodness, is a cheerful disposition, graced by that magnanimity which tenderly reproves whilst it allays the perturbations even of a foe,” vanish into thin air. He would hear forty thousand complaints like this; “Hang that paper, it is as starchy as an old maid ; it never has anything spicy in it; it is afraid to speak its own sentiments.” He would pick up an ex change some fine morning and find himself put down as an old fogy. True sentiment is not always thought to flow from the chair editorial. We are gener ally governed by the appearance, standing and abilities of an editor, before we class him among the reliable class of writers. We may respect a man ever so much ; may have confi dence in his integrity and ability, yet if he does not give anaturalvent to his thoughts, his editorials are as dry as a chip. If he does not wound sometimes he never can heal. The good doctor wounds often when he intends to cicatrize, of course, and produce a counter irritation and draw the cause of the disease from its old lo cality, to produce equilibrium, thereby alle viating the pain of the 3ufferer, and curing up the old sore. Yon must touch up a community sometimes, when you want them to do better; and whether the reproof comes from the pul pit or the press it is good, if morality is incul cated iu the doctrines. The true editor will give his readers sorae- hing grave, didactic, pathetic, and sometimes he may be witty, though some “wise journals,” with “old lady editors,” object seriously to fun and pictures But then you know “old women” must have their way, anti be allowed to drink their “yarb tea” in peace, for you may never make anything out of one of the good old 9ouls, God bless them, only by agreeing with them. But our friend Bell is not upon the same footing himself with the “old women,” bnt he wishes to place the true editor in his sanctumJFke a Judge upon the bene! l j spitaf. aivn Jth he has sittee lived in Bahi- jiore^JBVfcipally engaged nil writing for tbe press. Mr. Johnson has made quite a wide reputation as a writer, some of his pieces hav ing been copied into the English papers.

These animals have been brought from California for Baron de Rothschild, who intends to breed from them iu his park of Ferrieres.” giving them sage’advice. Now, editors place tlieir owh views before the public, not as laws, but as suggestions, never supposing that they can exert so much influence as our friend Bell seems to think. He accords to them entirely too much importance, and seems to think that they should be very circumspect. To sum up the whole duties of a true editor, we think he ought to go according to his own inclinations, without any fixed rules to govern his actions. The world cannot move onward and let him keep still. If a community are to make an editor their oracle they should obey him. There are certain prerogatives, how ever, that belong to an editor: he should have, at least, the license of public speakers lie should have the good will of a community, because, in general, he has but few selfish ends to grat- ify. He should not deem it his duty to take up every case and expose its actoTs, nolens rolens, and then stand upon his reserved rights, for there are certain things enacted in all comrau nities which should not he exposed, even though the community should be the gainer. For stance, wc saw two policemen taking a man to the calaboose on Monday. He seemed peni tent, and begged his tormenters to turn him loose, but they “had the advantage” of the in ebriate neophyte of Bacchus, and their ten dency was calaboose-ward, (we hope N. P Willis will excuse us for coining this com pound,) and there they were going. This would thank us but little were wc to give his name. The true editor i9 bound to not ice events only as he desires, as all the responsibility con sists in the commission, not in the omission. We think the editorial profession is too much a target for the public. They get but little praise for what pleases a community, and at least their just meed of censure for what they neg lect to do. “I’ll swear the press ought to no tice that," Paul Pry wil say, and when Goose- quil does get off an article upon the subject and gets whipped for it, Paul will clap his hands and hasten to the next office and ask ed itor Grampnis to write a local about the fight. He thinks editor Goose-quill acted wrong in being so personal. Thus wags the world—the true editor will go under and be thrashed out frequently unless he be a man of nerve. W'e must confess, how ever, that our friend Bell is a good friend to editors, hut he does not &cem to understand the duties of a epod true editor. Mr. Belllrays: “Newspapers are constantly multiplying, and many of them with high sounding names serve hardly any otherpurpos than that of augmenting the devouring flames of fanaticism and faction.” This sentence intended to curb the spirit of the political e*d itor when he tries to set- forth the wrongs heaped upon the South. Again, our mistaken friend, in his zeal upon llie subject of the ‘true editor,’ makes an assertion which he does not qualify, but it may be taken as a sweep at the whole fraternity. “Wanting in learning, truth and dignity, they are aggressors in the flowery republic of mind, and should be re pulsed by the discountenance of the reading community.” This is rather severe upon the editors—or na Mr. Bell would have it, many of them—but admitting that our correspondent is right, it is wrong in him to make such broad, unqualified, gratuitous thrusts, for we are all connected by a tie, however so strong or weak. We are not generally less inclined to speak the truth than our outside friends ; we arc in search of learning, and sometimes get as near the Temple of Fame as some of our correspondents, and if not dignified, it is the fault of nature, notours. We seldom try to tread upon “the flowery republic of mind,” for there are so many thorns in our paths that we can liurdly eveT get into “the gardens of Ghttl in their bloom.” Our clever correspondent ought not to call us ignorant, because we try to primp up and do the best we cau. We do not think it possible that we ever will get to be “a true editor,” in the sense of our friend Bell, as he places the stan dard too high. “Vituperation and wrangling form their chief design—base selfishness the gold of their mean ambition.” This is too bad, friend Bell, we are not venal; wc deal as little in vituperation as our want of refinement will allow. If we published a monthly Maga zine or a Quarterly Review, we might keep out much that will naturally creep into a daily or weekly paper. The masses must have some trash, or the paper will not take. It is like some of the speeches that you lawyers make, when you have a little case in a Justices Court, you must speak to the Jury and to the Justice after a very plain fashion, as all of them do not understand the relationship existing be tween John Doe and Richard Roe. The strung nnion sentiments of friend Bell are not relevant to the subject, as a great many “true editors” take the opposite side. We would simply state that true patriotism can also be found in the ranks of those who are not so union loving. We hope our readers will peruse friend Bell’s article and act upon his wise suggestions, and try and bring his hopes to their fulfillment, and that his “happy reflections shall tend to soften the asperities and awaken the nobler impulses of the editors and writers of the pres ent day." A fine Hat made in Atlanta. In addition to having the name of being the greatest Rail Road city in the South, Atlanta can boast of many branches of industry. It is generally known that the art of hat making is one of the most difficult branches among the in dustrial arts. Until within a few years past we have depended almost entirely upon the North ern manufactories for thi3 necessary article to set off the dress of a genteel man. It is true we can | urchase a nica hat from any of tbe Stores at a moderate price, but those hats are hastily put together, are made of ordinary materials, and as soon as they arc exposed to the rain they change color and become slouchy in their ap pearance. We are under obligations to Mr. G. T. Hamp ton, the very efficient head workman in the Hat Manufactory of Mr. J. M. Holbrook, of our city, for on* of the neatest and most finely fin ished silk hats, made expressly for the writer, that we have ever seen. We risk nothing in making the assertion that Mr. Hampton is one ot the most expert workmen in the country, ei ther North or South: Those who desire to test his skill can call upon him at his room in the establishment of the employer, on Whitehall street, where they can see with what dexterity he uses the bow string, iron and dyeing pot. They will also be convinced that he is a nice, genteel, clever man, and at all times ready to measure the heads of his customers. We thank Mr, Hampton for this line present, and wc shall wear the hat with the conciousuess that it is the gift of a worthy citizen. We trust he may long make Atlanta his home, to supply its citizens with a plenty of fine hats. Tlie Trne Editor. BY MARCI’S A. BELT.. The characteristic of a true Editor is that manly spirit of brotherly love which induces an ingenueus inculcation of real convictions of truth to elevate the social standard, and insure the general happiness of the human family. However brilliant the talents of the Editor, if not imbued with generous candor, his strained editorials arc hut discordant notes jarring the harmony “finer feelings can bestow.” His language may flow in the glowing style of a Headley, or the stately elegance of a Gibbon, yet the want of earnest trot h will impart to the strain acheerless tone, breathing a chilling, withering influence upon the budding hopes of true social life. Next to the sublime virtue of candid good ness, is a cheerful disposition, graced by that magnanimity which tenderly reproves whilst it allays the perturbations even of a foe! Supposing, of conr se, that the Editor pos- seses varied knowledge of persons and things, with fit endowments of the pen, he must not only have the above named moral qualities, but great self-respect and self-reliance, with ^UMMttSiM»Wr ri yk*fel*A IW Eliding love. ’ Might Thought* ‘•Through the shadowy rmst Lika a tomb Marcher memory ran. IJfthig each shroud that time had cj4*t O^r buried hopes.” Ten years have passed since [saw my native land, or looked upon an “old familiar face.” Ten years have passed since last I stood upon the thresh hold of the old homestead, and oh ! who shall say how, amidst all my triumphs, my heart has turned with a yearning ten derness to the roof that sheltered my in fancy . As l partt to-night, the curtain of memory, and permit my thoughts to wander through the labarynth of joys and sorrows which the past contains, a spirit of unutterable loneliness pervades my heart. I feel, indeed, like one amidst the vast ness of a desert, not a sign of vegetation near, not a flower anywhere to re lieve the wandering eye, no rippling stream whose flowing melody should relieve the ear frem the weight of the surrounding silence. I look around, but no smile of recognition or of welcome from loving friends meets my eye; no well remembered voice tails upon my ear : no hand grasps mine in love and fellowship. ] am, Indeed, alone—all alone. The family chain was broken, and the sev ered links scattered when I was but a child. The old homestead passed into strange hands. An old friend of my family adopted me. 1 was treated kindly and affectionately ; and tlie only fountain of joy that my youthful heart ever knew was in the bosom of that family. But I had my joy for a brief nejisoo only. Short as it was, however, it was fraught with an influence whose presence has Hm, in all my latter years, a sweet companion in my wanderings. \ Jennie Gordon, my old friend’s daughter, was the fountain of joy to me, and her love the influence which, amidst all the care* and tur moils which have surrounded me, never for a moment left me. We grew up together ; stu died together. Even in our childhood, the hope of one was the hope of the othem In our youth, whatever pictures the fancy of one wduid draw of future happiness, tlie imagina tion of the other would endeavor to give them a brighter coloring. Of our lore we never spoke. We were satisfied of its existence. We never knew the day of its birth, and we never thought that a time would ever come when it should die. .She was singular as a child, aud as she increased in years, her peculiarities, it seemed to me, became more firmly fixed. Her father and mother would sometimes say that they feared her mind was not always strong, and the neighbors would at times look at her and shake their heads ominously. 1 would often laugh at these fears of our friends, for I knew that, what they took as evidences of their men tal weakness were the deep searchings and the giant efforts of a strong mind to comprehend the greatness and the glory of God, as dis played in everything which his hand has created for our good. 1 have seen her often sit for hours with her eyes fixed upon the heavens with such intensity that one would think that life and death hung upon her gaze. I would sometimes break in upon these spells of star-reading, when she would turn her great eyes to me, beaming with a world of deep thought and feeling, and say, “I cannot see them now, but I shall before long.” This was her invariable answer, and as tbe words fell upon my car, my heart would always heat quicker, and for days afterwards a scene of dread would come over me, for which 1 could not account. The Autumn of the year had conic. All na ture was changing its livery of green, for gol den tints. The winds no longer stirred the leaves with a melody like unto that of running brooks, hut rather wailed as if they knew that the strings of their harp had become loosed or broken. The day was near at hand in 1 which I was to take leave of Jennie, aud fo go to Italy to finish my studies. Oh! how my mind turns after this long lapse of cears to to that last night at home, to the las. words that fell from her lips—words of counsel— ^4*' • • words are singing in my car—“I will leave the” “pearly gates ajar.” And as 1 turn my eyes heavenward, the wish will spring in my heart that the “pearly gates” might open, and angel hands bear me up to God. But I will wait patiently, and when the time comes for me to go, she will know it., and will meet me at the “gate.” Atlanta, May 14. New* from Pike** Peak. St. Josephs, Mo., May 10, 1800. The Pike's Peak express arrived here lats night with Denver City dates to May, 3, and $G,268 in treasure. The express met in one day one hundred teams cn route for the mines. The fol lowing summary of news is furnished by this arrival : Denver Cjtv, May.”, I860. The reported murder at the Smoky Hill Fork is not credited here. The Indians probably had reference to one committed early in tbe Spring. Dr. L. D. Hickman, brother of Bill Hickman, of Mormon notoriety, was shot on Monday last by a German, named Hazelly, near Mountain City. Hickman ordered Hazelly from a claim he was working, aiming at him with a cocked revolver, llazely climbed front the pit in which be was working, knocked np Hickman’s pistol, drew his own, and shot him through tbe head, causing instant death. It is reported that Hick man hss a wife in Davenport, Iowa. Much difficulty is anticipated in consequence of the jumping” of claims.

THE NEW YORK NAVY AGENCY. ft&*SEE “The True Editor.” It vindicate* itself against the criticisms of friend Bolivar. Ilis charge that I would have editors “remain neutral upon every question, for fear of giving offence,” is not justified by the letter nor spirit of the article assailed. It will be seen that his other criticisms are very harmless. I cannot agree with him that “Tbe masses must, have some trash, or a paper will not take.” Marchs A. Bell. The Plantation Is a Southern Quarterly Journal, edited by J. A.'Turner, of Georgia. Wc have been favored by Mr. J. A. Turner, the editor, who resides at Eatonton, Ga., with a copy of this work, which contains upwards of two hundred pages of reading matter. We have not had time to peruse the articles, there fore wc can give no opinion as to their merit. The number presented to us looks very well indeed, and would have done credit to the city (?) of Eatonton and tbe printers under the charge of Mr. Turner, if he had had the work done there, but from a close inspection of the title page, wc found that it is “published by Pudney & Russell, New York.” Eatonton, Ga., published by J. A. Turner. For a Southern Editor to sit at home here in Georgia and write, or cause to be written, enough manuscript to Jill a Magazine of two hundred pages, and entirely overlooking the claims of pub lishers in Atlanta, Augusta, Macon, Columbus and Savannah, to send them to Xew York to be published, is a sufficient cause for the rejection of the work. We trust that every paper in the .State will condemn the work, merely upon this ground. Tne publishers in either of the cities named, could have done the type and press work as neatly as Pudney & Russell, 7D John j Street, N. Y. The work purports to treat upon tlie Slave interest and everything connected with the plantation; therefore it should be published in the South, or not at all. Until the publication is changed from New York to Georgia, we can not recommend it to the support of the citizens of Georgia. Messrs. Pudney & Russell are to receive all the profits of the work, of course, as Mr. Tur ner cau only hope to clear expense, for the first, year or two. We hope Mr. Turner will reconsider his plans and change the programme, as his work, It is reported that tlie name of Mr. Russell, I published at the South, might-do sonic good, of Ulster county, New York, and oue of the delegates to Charleston, will be sent in to the Senate to-morrow as Navy Agent in Now York, rice Geo. X. Sunders, removed. clamors of wrong. If such is not his preem inence, he has certainly usurped tlie editorial throne; and instead of a herald of tbe grand truths of civilization, his paper is an organ of strife. The position the Editor holds to society, is of great importance. From the chair editorial, true sentiment is generally thought to he ex pressed; and the general intelligence dis- seminat ed through the columns of the news paper for the public good; and hence to this source of information the eyes of the people are turned with peculiar concern. The patriot, the poet, the philosopher, scans the fresh pages of life-history, for “ A feast of Teason and a flow of soul;” the sordidly selfish tradesman, to note the items in the dry department of trafic; and the idle vulgar, to satiate a vicious curiosity. Is it not a strange infatuation, a singular devotion, that inclines the feelings and confidence of some persons on tbe side of pub lic scandal ? To gratify a polluted taste is the low busi ness of the silly scribbler, surely not the high vocation of the true Editor. All good principles are pointed with amoral, expressed or implied, and are intended for wholesome admonition or instruction; and if any Lord or Lady of th t mortal or immortal pen, make a personal application of the moral of these truths, Sir, Madam, he not provoked to anger. Pause right here ! Reflect! Remember that if the reproof is justly applied to you on account of your heartless productions, you are dishonoring your name ; and from this time forward resolve to honor your name by assum ing and maintaining the dignified position of the true Editor Newspapers are constantly multiplying, and many of them with high sounding names serve hardly any other purpose than that of aug menting the devouring flames of fanaticism and faction. Wanting in learning, truth, and dignity, they arc aggressors in the flowery re public of mind, and should be repulsed by the discountenance of the reading community. Vituperation and wrangling form their chief de sign—base selfishness the gold of their mean ambition. The majesty of justice may be sha ken, hut can never be hurled from its throne, and sooner or later ignoble notoriety will su pervene to respond to their false hopes. The true Editor is ever awake to his own host Interest in striving to promote the peace and general welfare of society, and not a destroyer of his own best interest by exasperating the evil passions of men to the disturbance of pub lic tranquility. He makes it a daily study to edify and please, by enunciating practical truths, and presenting innocent amusements, and striking pictures of real life—illustrations of its deformities to admonish, of its beauties to allure ua to the quiet paths of virtue—those highways of prosperity and happiness winding around tbe great Mount of National Union and leading us, as a united brotherhood, to tbe proud summit of true greatness. All that we possess of true glory as Individ uals, or as a people, springs from the virtue of simple truth and brotherly love; and the perpetuity of our republic depends more upon the universal inculcation of these grand princi ples, than upon the changing schemes and plat forms of excited politicians. True patriotism is moving in this direction to stay the tide of error and fanaticism—having faith in the pro gression of man—and looking forward with pleasing confidence to the time when as one people, with one national spirit, we shall bask in the light of a brighter and more permanent glory. If these happy reflections shall tend to sof ten the asperities aud awaken the nobler im pulses of any of the editors or writer* of tho day, tbe lesson may not be iu vain to the world. Lost (Jvku the Falls.—A dispatch from Chippewa, Canada West, says: A sou of tbe late Dr. Macklem, and nephew of Tho*. C. Etroet, fell into the river yesterday, (May uth,) and was carried over Niagara Falls. She came to me that last evening, and said, “George, to-morrow you leave for Ttalr, there to pursue your studies iu the very presence, as it were, of tho old masters. You are going where you can, indeed, not. only look upon but touch what the immortal genius of Angelo, Ra phael and Da Yinei have rendered saefed—you will soon be amidst, the scenery that gave in spiration to their genius—you will become a frequent visitor to places that were once hul lo wed by their presence. These things added to your devotion, to your art, will barely leave room in your mind for other things which, in the judgement of her who loves you before all the world, are paramount to these idols of your heart. I wish you now to go with me to look upon the works of a mightier genius than either of the immortal trio that 1 have men tioned, so that, when the great ocean rolls be tween us, you may have the recollection of oue scene of super-human beauty and glory to bring your mind in its freshness an 1 purity hack to this night to me.” I went out with her to a little knoll a few hundred yards from our cottage, when point ing to the beautiful heavens studded with mil lions of stars?—pointing to the moon walking with the stately steps of an Empress, the “up per deep,” she said to me in low, deep tones, “look upon that work, and in all your future efforts after fame, remember what I shall say to you to-night—the last, night that l shall stand by your side iu this world.” Stop Jen nie, 1 said; such talk is out of place now. My heart is sad enough at the thought of leaving you, and you should endeavor to shed as much sunlight around my last hours with you, as possible, instead of casting such shadows upon my heart. But she continued, “you know how deep is the love I bear you, and you know that 1 would not willingly give you pain, but I must speak to-night as my heart dictates. You are going in search of lame, and it is my earnest hope that all yonr anticipations may he realized, if they will conduce to your eter nal happiness. It will be a proud day to me if I should live to hear your name mentioned in terms of eulogy by the great aud good. A wild ecstacy will fill my heart to overflowing, if my eyes ever rest upon a work of your hands—a creation of your genius : and my soul with its great love, its deep and holy love, will, when it shall sec your name written in characters of living fire upon the scroll of fame, thank God for granting you Ell that your heart could wish ; hut, George, there is some thing higher yet than this fame of the world to which I wish your thoughts and your efforts directed. It is this : that you turn aside often in your pursuit, of worldly honor, to acknowl edge your indebtedness to God for the high gifts which he has bestowed upon you, and to ask that those gifts may be always so eiuyloy- ed as to reflect His Glory. Nothing great or noble can be accomplished to tlie soul’s satis faction unless we feel a consciousness that in all our efforts the eye of Providence has fol lowed us approvingly. You will thiuk of these things, I know, for my sake, when in far off Italy—sweet land of poetry—cradle of immor tal art, and some quiet Autumn evening you will seek a place in which to muse of home, und to think of her whose prayers the while will he ascending to heaven that your ‘lines may he cast in pleasant places.’ And now farewell. Something tells tne that. 1 will be walking the golden streets of the Celestial City before you return ; but cb ! if this shall be, l will leave the ‘pearly gates ajar* for you God bless and keep you.’ Ten year-—ten long yours to me have gone by since these words fell’upon my ear. They have lingered in my heart ever since, and when my feet liavo turned aside from the “strait and narrow way,” they have acted the part of a guardian angel, and have led me gently back. I have gained honor, wealth and fame; 1 have walked with God all these years, and now to-night, while standing where I bid good bye to the only being I ever loved, her last THE SAN 4TAX DI1TICLLTY. Lord Lyons had a protracted interview with the Secretary of State to-day, in regard to the San Juan affair. It is pretty evident that tho matter is not so easy of solution as Lord John Russell supposed. The proposition of the Eng lish government has been peremptorily and positively declined by our government, and the final settlement is as remote to-day as it was in the beginning. Our government, as from the first, maintains its undisputed right to the island. What new position England will next assume in the matter the next mail will probable disclose. increase of the pay of naval officers.

Wendell was examined again to-day by the Covode Committee in regard to money used to pass the English bill. l’y an examination of his hank book and other papers the committee traced thirty thousand dollars into the hands of three lobby men, who are supposed to have used it in the passage of the bill. The parties who received it are Mr. Walker, at present correspondent of the New York Express, Mr. Hay, of Fenusylvania, and Mr. Bean. The latter, it appears, only received five thousand dollars, so that tlie remainder went into the hands of the two former. The committee will endeavor to trace it a little further, and see if any members of Congress received any of the thirty thousand. Mortimer Thompson lias* been subpoenaed to appear again to-morrow, as my * ,Uit;oni " ' lu - THE NEW YORK PUBLIC STORE CONTRACTS. Mr. Barr’s committee met this morning, and examined Mr. Purser, of New York, in regard to the public store contract. His testimony was nearly the same as that given before the Co vode committee. Nothing new was elicited. Whatever may be individual right in the matter of religious opinion, to say the least of it. any one is seriously endamaging his claims upon a perfect confidence of society, who openly scoffs at the Christian religion, and seeks tlie conversion of men to infidelity.

For several Sabbaths a span of males has been observed to santer leisurely through Ma rietta Street, with a special view it seems, to sample the beautiful shade trees that adorn this locality that have been nurtured with so much care for some years. A number of elm trees in this-street bear the evidences of tlieir sad havoc, and are well nigh ruined. These animals may have committed similar depredations in other portions of the city. Can’t (lie owner, (who certainly cannot, be aware of the perpetration of the mischief re ferred to) confine them on Sundays, and thus prevent the unnecessary destruction of trees that cost <»ne dollar a piece ?

Tuf African Slave Trade in the North. The African slave trade would appear to be ii flourishing condition, if we can judge from the number of slavers, or suspected slavers, which are continually clearing from this and odjacen ports. Tbe escape of the Storm King, tbe other day, from the surveillance of the federal author ities, is not a novel affair, although it is the first time, we believe, in which the delinquent ofli cials were brought to account. There is no doubt that vessels are fitted out by the score every year for the African slave trade, aud ow ing to the corruption wich exists among the sub ordinate federal officers they manage to mal. jood their departure unmolested, or at best sub jected only to u temporary detention. Curious enough, too, nearly all vessels engaged in this illegal traffic are built and fitted out in the North —the fanatical, anti-slavery North—that raves fiercely about the’suflerings of the negro race. We rarely hear of a slaver clearing from n South ern port; and we believe the only case know of conviction for running slaves was had in a Southern city.—A’. Herald. John Cameron, of Providence, Rhode Island had a dashing young man named Janies Stewart for a bonder. Stewart worked himself into the good graces of Mrs. Cameron, and last Friday persuaded her to go to boston, and marry him. The Rev. Jon Duncan performed the ceremony, she giving her name as Mary Ann Burns. Then the lomng couple went back to theliousa of Mr. Cameron, who, a few days after, saw Stewart make a hasty exit through the window ot his wife’s bedroom. Mrs. C. contessed all, and Ste wart was taken into custody. An Earthquake Barometer.—The Japanese have discovered that a lew seconds previous to au earthquake, the magnet temporarily loses its power, and have ingeniously constructed a light, frame supporting a horse-shoe magnet, beneath which is a cup of heel metal.
