Like a sfngle gem. of the crystal dew, A drop of the rainy showers, A gleam from a star inllie jut her blue, A bud in a world of flowers. Like a leaf from one of the numWrhss trees, A flaKe m a drift of snow', A ripple in all of the rippling seas, A b,ade h tbc s fieJds " Like a single ray from the pale sad moon To lighten the gloom of night ; Or a golden beam from the sun at noon Or the son;j of a bird in flight. Like a fleeting grain of-thejdesert sand, - A flash of the ocean spray, A simple shell on thejonely strand, A rainbow fading away : Such, such is life and though lowly, these Have each their mission and part, The dew and t he rain, the flo'ers and t he trees, The ocean the human heart. And like all of these in life's; surging throng, . There's a simple place for me, A note or a chord in dear nature's song, To BweLl her great harmony. SIC miR AD ASTRA. et conixsE oaksmith June, 1879. Oh, the crosses that are carried Which the world can never know Oh, the hopes by sorrow buried, Where Lethe's waters flow ! Oh, the idols crushed and broken, Along life's thoroughfare Oh, the burdens all unspoken, Whose ashes moulder there ! Ob, the tasks in secret taken For God alone to see- Oh. the patient faith unshaken, Through years of misery ! Oh.the vain endeavors wasted, The sacrifices lost Ye who life's joy have tasted, Know not the heavy cost ! Oh, well for the children! of sorrow, As they tread the lonely track, That the shadows of to-morrow, Have never yet come back. We know in the great supernal, God watches us one and all. And gathers with love eternal, Our treasures as they fall.

C, ) July 8th, 1879. Dear Friend : Your letter of yesterday is received. You say truly that "only God can give us strength to bear such a calam ity." You inclose me a printed report ot the disaster and ask if it is correct. My agony is too great to dwell upon the hor rible scene, but justice to nLy dead daugh ters compels me to make the cCbit, ando say that the report you send is entirely er- roneous. I will state all that it is essential now to know. AH the facts are known only tor God and myself, i was' the only one in the boat who could I swim, or who had ever before confronted peril and death. Hence I waj. net panic ttriclen, and had a dreadful realization of all that was coins on. AH the Itsroism displayed in the fearful struggle was by my noble daughters Bessie and Corinne, who lost their lives in heart rending efforts to save their two younger sisters. 'Whatever I did was my plain simple duty, arid God knows I feel that I did it poorly enough.. I had the responsi bility of oil, and hoped to the last to save them all. The saving myslelf never entered my mmd : my whole thought was to save my children, and I say it , with submission, that but for my efforts riot been saved. one would ; have The accident occurred in this way : I was steering the boat wiih a :yoke, and when half way across between fort Macon and Beaufort she steered wildly, and jt en trusted the main sheet to my son Randolph, 17 years of age, charging hirivto kep it clear arid watch the sail, ready tp ibe' I charged the moment the sail passec When we got him to "let fly" the wind.'

J then swam round on the other side of the boat and found that ray daughters j had all, lost their hold, got the two eldest once more back, telling them that I would go for the little ones. I was clinging to thej sten to get a breath for my task when Bessie and Corinne turned round and saw their little sisters being swept away. They uttered one shrickt and threw, themselves rtff nnli BtrmrtrlitA trt irf tn thorn Af th!a instant! I realized that the boat's anchor had i gone to the b)ttom and was holding her. Pknew then that 1 unless I could i get the boat clear of ier anchor, or assistance soon came, Uevould be lost. I got two boat who stilt heeded my voice, I told the lit tle! onc-a to cling to the gratings and Bessie " 'I fend Corinne t Put the oars under their arms and 4 keicp hedes up and arms down." Corinne answWed cheerfully, "All right, papa,"j and called out to the others, "Keep your heads up and arms down, and keep quiet." j i j I then swam'against the current tothebriw of the boat, which was six feet under water, held by her cable, and went down and tried jiri vain to cast it jadrift. I had thrown off jmy coat and Ivest early in the struggle and had no knife. j Tiie weight of my body on the bow, pressed down by the current, bore it further down, and I felt the boat again rolling over, j I let go my hold and came to the surface,; steadied the boat again, en couraged my; son t3 hold on to his little brother and flic boat to the last, and look ing for my daughters, saw them drifting away, but apparently safe. At this mo ment, while holding on to the boat to recov er myself, I saw t-ome canoes or boats in the distance, apparently fishing. I raised my Voice for help. The men appeared to look, but did not pome. Could I have got the boat clear from her cable in time, I believe I could have savdd my daughters. I wasted much strength in that vain endeavor. Had I not don so I might possibly have got one of them to tfie shore, but after they drifted 20 feet by tiie stern, it was impossible for me to. get either back to the boat. It re quired all my! strength to swim to the bow against the current when I made my vain effort to set the boat adrift for their rescue. My aony was so great that I could not endure it, arl4 I started to swim to my daughter where we should all doubtless have perished together, which would have been better for me were it riot for the living When I saw jtlje boat whic h rescued us com ing round the point of marsh. My reason told me that the chances for saving my daughters w'cfrs greater with my help in that boat than out of it, and I waited in till she! came, and directed the kind friends who! were in her where to search. The rest is all known. We i ,;.: . Ifound my daughters all floating ex- jcept Bessiejbut near where I saw her last hvas M ildred lvinsr hleless with her arms .iacross an oar.

The world has never seen greater devotion than this of my two rioblc eldest daughters, i; jlfour anchor had not gone to the bottom, or th boat w'hich carae,to our aid had reached us ten minutes sooner, all would have been saved.

If the Sahara is Flooded What t The only important objection which has thus far been uged;. against; the undertaking has arisen in the appre hensions expressed by a few scien t,sts that the evaporation produced by so large and so shallow a body of water, exposed to the - tropical sun, Would be sulficient to deluge North- E(irope with inceSsant rains, and to IieviuvTC iiiaici lazi ly iiic ic.upciaiuiv 111 , all the countries north of the Alps. MAJ ...... w. A 1 Mn. I I .. . I . A AH.. HA .M It has even been feared that i the winds freighted with moisture on crossing the cold summits of the Alps, would precipitote vast volumes of water aud produce a degree of cold which would give Denmark jand Northern Germany a semi-Arctic cli mate and, produce a glacial epoch farther north. Is it not probable that all such apprehensions arise1 out of a misunderstanding as to the topo graphy of Sahara and North Africa? The entire region to be flooded is practically shut in by mountain-chains on all sides. The Atlas mountains on the north, lifting their snow-clad peaks in some instances 12,000 feet, afford a sufficient bulwark for the protection of Europe from increased humidity. The only possible north ern ly outlet for air currents from El Juf would be across Tunis in a north easterly direction over the widest - part of the Mediterranean. Currents moving in that direction, if they reach ed Europe at all, would touch the shores of Greece after they had lost most of their humidity. M. de Les- seps, attt r a careiui examination oi the question, is convinced that it would result in the general improve ment of the climate of Europe rather than to its detriment. The advan tage of the increased evaporation to North Africa cannot be overestima ted.' The snow-clad cliffs of Aban, lying to the east of the proposed sea, and the Kong mountains to the south, would bring down upoii the parched desert grateful rains, which, with the assistance of cultivation, would in time, no doubt, redeem thousands of square mills from the desolation of the sands. Scribner. The great meteor which fell in Era raett county, Iowa, on May 10th, is indeed a great curiosity. We notice that a piece of it weighing 500 pounds has been taken to New York and has been thoroughly examined af. the Government assay office. The result is thus given. The metal ic portion, separated as far as possible from the poky part, gave 83 5-100 per cent, metalic iron, 1 1 per cent, nickel, with a trace juf co balt. The rocky part contains crystals of zircnm of small size, and was prin ninnllr made on of that mineral in granular form mixed with sulphide of iron and nickel, besides carrying silica, allumina, lime aud magnesia. The whole -makes up a composition not found anywhere on earth, though its several ' parts are well known to geologists. Zircum, however,; is a rare mineral; and when found in large, clear crystals is of considerble value.
