FLOWERS.
There is a legend old as earth,
Rut beautiful and true,
Wh.ch tells us how the flowers had birth,
And wherefore came the dew.
V.'hcii Eve—thro’ Satan’s sore deceit—
Touched the forbidden tree,
And tenij.tcd her “gftid man’’ to eat,
'J'he Lord came angrily.
And straig;ht\vay turned from Edcii’t: bowers
'J‘hi:se fir.'st-boni siniier.s forth,
Aiway from all its smiling flowers,
I pon the barren earth.
J)ut jiitying, ere to Heaven he passed.
His angels—brothers then—
O’er all tlie earth their footjirints cast.
And hill, and vale, and glen,
Sparkled with flowers—earth’s starry siiheres,
And on they fled from view
They strewed the flowers with ]>itying tears,^
A\’hich since have pa.'sed for dew.
And thus, though Paradise was lost
]>y first of iiuman kind,
Thy children know, though sorely crossed,
dods’ love is left behind.
REPORT OP THE PEACE CONFER
ENCE COMMITTEE.
On Friday the 15th, the Committee on a l*lan
of Settlement, presented to the Peace Conference

])unishment of crime, is prohibited wliilst it shall
be uttder a Territorial (iioverniDent; and in all the
Territory .south of said line the of jier.sons
owing service or labor as it now exists shall not be
changed by biw while such 'J’crritory shall be
under a Territorial (lovernment ; and neither (’on-
:;re.ss nor the Territorial (lOvernment shall have '
power to hinder or prevent the taking to said Ter
ritory of persons held to lal.or or involuntary
service witliii> tlie I nited States, according to tlie
laws or u.sages of any State from whicli such per-
‘ sons may be taken, nor to impair the rights arising
I out of said relation's, which shall be subject to
j judicial cognizance in the Federal Courts accord- |
i iiig to the ctmimon law; and when any Territory '
i north or south of said line, within such boundary
I :is Congress may prescribe, shall contain a popula- j
I tion .required for a member of 0>ngress, according I
i to the then Federal ratio of re|)resentation, it !
; shall, if its form of government be Kepublican, be

tlie original States, with or without involuntarv
service or labor, as the Constitution of such new
State may provide.
Art. '1. Territory shall not be acquired by tlie

naval and commercial stations and depots, unless

Akt. 8. Neither the Constitution, nor any
amendment thereof, shall be construed to give
('otigre.ss power to abolish or control, within any
State or Territory, the relation e.stablished or re
cognized by the laws thereof, touching persons bound
(o laborer itivoluntary service therein, or interfere
with or abolish involuntary service in the IMstrict
of ('ulumbia witlu,ut the consent of ^Maryland, and
without the consent of the owners, or making the.
owners who do not consent just compensation; nor
the power to interfere with or prohibit representa
tives and others from bringing with them to the
city of Washington, retaining and taking away,
persons bound to labor; nor the power to inteifere
with or abolish involuntary service in places under
the exclusive jurisdiction of the United States
withia those States and Territories where the same

hibit the removal or transportation, by land, sea or

usage, and the right, during transjiortation, oi’
touching at shores, ports and landings, and of
landing in case of distress, shall exist ; nor .shall
Congre.ss have jiower to authorize any higher rate
of taxes on j)ersons bound to labor than on land.
Art. 4. The thiid paragraph of the second sec
tion of the fourth article of the C’onstitiition shall
not be construed to prevent any of the States, by
appropriate legislation, iitid through the action of
their judicial and ministerial oflicers, from enfor
cing the delivery of fugitives from labor to the
person to whom stieli service or labor is due.
Art. 5. TJie foreign shive trade and the impor

value oi his fugitive from labor in all case's where
the ^Marshal or otlier officer, whose duty it was to
arrest such fugitive, was prevented from so doing
by violence or intiinidatiun, or when, after arr'-st,
such fugitive was rescued by force, and the owner
thereby ]irevented and obstructed in the jiursuit
of his remedy for the recovery ofsueh I'ugitive.

The Niairara left Kanagawa ou the 26th of
November Imm Hong-Kong, bringing letters up to
tliat «late. The landing of the Ambassadors and
the reception of the Niagara's oflicers have already
been Jioticed. A visit to the city of Yeddo soems
to have completely dissolved that halo of beauty
which the imagination had lent it. The houses

of wood or stone, con>tructed of a framework
of light timber, with lieavy beams above, while the
side and partitions below are simply iraiues of sticks
and paper—the whole resembling a vast rice-pa-
' }>er camp, which only needs a spark to kiudle it
inti» a flame. In I'act, two thous^jid hou.'Jes were

men to work the new gun wth entire success.
Nearly all the Ibreigners in Japan, however,
complain bitterly of the indignities which are still
heaped upju them; and it is evident that the pre
judices of centuries are far from being overcome.
Fears are entertained of an indiscriminate massacre
