The'goHen rod is yellow;
The corn Is turning brown;
The trees In apple orchards
With trait are bending down.
The gentian's bluest fringes
Are eurting to the sun;
In dusty pods the milkweed
Its hidden silk has spun.
The sedges flaunt their harvest
In every meadow nook:
And asters by the brook side,
Make asters in the brook.
From dewy lanes at morning
The grapes' sweet odors rise;
At noon the roads all flutter
With yellow butterflies.
By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer's best, of weather,
And autumn's best of cheer.
But none of all this beauty
Which floods the earth and air
Is unto me the secret
Which makes September fair.
'Tis a thing which I remember;
To name It thrills me yet;
One day of one September
I never can forget

The Turning of tne Tide.
The export of gold from England and
France to the United States is exciting
discussion in the English papers. The
Times does not expect an immediate ad
vance in the rate of discount which is
now as low in London as from one to
one and a-quarter per cent but con
cedes that there may be contingencies
which will stiffen the market. Apart
from the probability nof larger exports
of bullion from London, it is estimated
by the Times that the organization in
Paris: of a multitude of speculative com
panies, more or Jess unreal,; creates in
London great uneasiness, where any re
action ftom an inflation' movement in
Fraflce; would tie severely felt. The
London sFiiwTjatfr, while showing that
tho present -export -of bullion to the
Unrtd States can be met by the bullion
imports, , is , of u opinion that the shii
ments of bonds and of other commodi
ties "will be quite inadequate to settle,
for the time, , the ; enormous balance
which must be accumulating in respect
to American food." When the bills f or
the late supplies, which are drawn at
sixty days,- tall due, the extent of the
demand for bullion will be better
known. ' In some quarters it is claimed
that demand from the United States for
gold in-payment for ; breads tuffs will
reach, two millions of pounds sterling,
(ten millions of doJlai-i) , Hew much
more wi) be drawn for, il is impossible
to say j for the English harvest reports,
in view of the heavy losses sustained by

A Washington dispatch states that
the Attorney General, in investigating
tbe statutes of Virginia, has discovered
that a law exists prohibiting the ces
sionof any territory by individual to
the United States without th authori
ty of th Legislature of the State.
Therefore he will be unable to carry
out the provisions of the act of Congress
authorising the purchase of the ground
and the erection of a, monument oyer

ferson at MontioeUo, until the neces
sary aotion is had. by the. legislature.

that they , will unite-in any efforts he
may see fit to make to secure the neces
