wuvlim NOT TUB GLORY OF C 41 S A R DUT TUB WELFARE OF ROME BURLINGTON, VERMONT, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER H 1845. VOL. XIX No. 24. BY II. B. STACY. AUTUMN. Autumn is singing a solemn hymn, To tlio year lliat is dyinp now j Liko (.nc of tlio ministering scraphims, With a golden crown on his brow. And his hymn is sweeter, far sweeter to me. Than the merriest chotu of spring, Or the richest and rarest melody, That tho sun -taught summer can sin?. Autumn is strewing tho forest leaves, Crimson and yellow and brown And tho south-west lifts up his voice and gricvet To sea how the leaves come down Dut to mo the forest is dearer far Than with summer's sras o'cr-pread, ' Like a carpet of flowers the crisp leaves arc Yielding music at every tread. Autumn is shedding a glory now Even here through tho city sl;y With rsptuie our wondering spirits bow As we gaio on each sunset dyo. Dut the sunset dyes are more golden and red, The glory more glorious still, Where the rainbow wings of tho west are spread Over forest and river and hill. Autumn is breathing a holy calm, Now that tho storms of summer are spent, And each well-reaped valley and harvested farm Arc resting in sweet content. And an eloquent hush from tho lips cf life Is heard with his measured breath, For the queenly year, without murmur of strife, Has yielded her throne to Death! Cahom.ua. ROMANCE IN REAL LIFE. Ono of my father's brother?, residing in Bos. ton at that iitne, became a lctim to the peslN lencc. When the first symp'.oms appeared, his wife sent the children into the country and lit; r eolf remained to attend upon him. Her friends warned her against such rashness They told her it would be death to her, and no benefit to him ; for he would soon be too ill to know who attended him. These arguments made no im press on her affectionate heart. She felt that it would be a long.life satisfaction to her to know i who attended linn, if he did not. She accord ingly stayed and watched him witli unremitting care. This, however, did not avail tosavo him. lie grew wore! and worse, and finally died. Those who wont round with the death. carts had , visited the chamber and seen that the end was near. They now came to take the body. His ' wife refused to let it go. She told mo she nev er knew how to account fur it, but though he 1 was perfectly cold and rigid, and to every ap- pcarancc quite dead, there wa a powortul im pression nn her mind that life was not extinct. The men were ovi rhornc by the strength of her conviction ; though their own reaion was opposed to it. Tho half.hour again came round, and again was hoard tho solemn word, "firing out your dead I" The wi.'o again resisted their impuni ties but this lime the i.ien wuiis more lesulule. They said the duty assigned to them was a piinful one ; but the health of the city required punctual obedience to tho orders they" received ; if they eer expected the pestilence to abate, it must be by a prompt removal of the dead, and immediate fuhnigatiun of the infected apart ments. She pleaded and pleaded, and even knelt to them in an agony of tears, continually saying, 'I am sure ho is not dead." The men repro sented tho utter absurdity nf Mich an idea ; but finally, overcome by her tears, again de- fiartcd. With trembling haste she renewed ler efforts to restore him. She raided his head, rolled his limbs in hot llinnel, and placed hot onions on Ins foot. Tho dreadful half-hour again came round, and found him as cold and rigid as ever. She renewed her entreaties so desperately, tint the messengers began to think a little gentle force would be necessary. They accordingly attempted to remove the body againt her will ; but she threw herself upon it, and clung to it with such frantic strength, that they could not easily loosen her grasp I Impressed by the remarkable energy of her j win, ir.ey relaxed tlieir ellorts. To all ol their j remonstrances she answered, 'If yon bury linn you shall bury mo with him.' At last by dint of reasoning on the necessity of tho casei they obtained from her a promise, that, if he showed I no signs of life before they again came round she would make no farther opposition to tlio re. moval. Having gained this respite, she hung the watch upon the bed-post, and renewed her ef forts with redoubled zeal. She placed kegs of hot water about him, forced brandy between his teeth, breathed into his nostrils and hold harts horn to his nose ; but still the body lay motion less and cold, she looked anxiously at tlio watch; in five minutes the half hour would expire, and those dreadful voices would bo heard, passing through the street.: Hopelessness came over her; she dropped the head she had been sus taining; her hand trembled violently ; and tho hartshorn sho had been holding was spilled on the pallid face. Accidentia, the position of the head had become slightly tipped backward, and the powerful liquid flowed into his nostrils. In stantly there was a 6hort, quick gasp a strug gle his eyes opened ; and when the death men camo again, they found him sitting up in bed. lie is still alive and has enjoyed unusually good lioalth.-Mrs. ChilJs. F'RiaiiTrui. Mortality at Sea. On Men. day the Eclair steam sloop, Commander Est court, arrived at Portsmouth, from the coast of Africa, having the yellow flag with a black ball in its centre, Hying from the iiidiuiiiast head emblematic of death on board. The most aw ful mortality has prevailed on this vessel, it is stated from a fever something between the yellow and black. No less than sixty-two per sons, including the commander, the surgeon, assistant surgeon, and four other officers, had died up to Monday morning, and at that time twenty-three persons were suffering from the disease. Three more deaths, and two new cases, wore reported yesterday (Tuesday) morning. Tho vessel is kept in a stato'of trict quarantine, and the must careful surveil lance is exorcised to proven! any communica tion with tho shore, Fresh provisions have been supplied to the unfortunate crew, and it is stated that medical aid has been sent from Ilaslar hospital, but no ono has been allowed to go on board or leave the venel, and the .quarantine officers refused to receive any 'thing from her oxcept llie Admiralty despatches.

GUANO. Tho now manure which lias so much in terested agriculturists, is likely to interest humanity under a now and not less precious aspect, that of a great medicine. A resi dence on tho guano deposits cures leprosy ! Hero nro tho facts, as wo find them stated in tho Memorial Bocdclais, as quoted in tho Havre Journal of Sept. 3, from which we translate, omitting tlio prefatory icmurks : Theso aro tho circumstances under which tho curative virtues of guano hecomo first known in Peru. A servant eaten up with leprosy, was discharged from his employ, from apprehension of the contagiousness of his loatlisoino mnludy. This unfortunate man, after wandering about some time with out shelter, look refugoinono of the Guano islands of tho Pacific. Tlio demand for this substance, attracted vessels thither, and tilts outcast helped them to load, and, re ceived in return, provisions and tho mcuns of living. At the closo of his day's work, ho bathed in the sea, and (lien sought his sleep ing placo in a sort of cavo he had hollowed out in a hank of Guano. Very soon, and without suspecting the cause, ho began to feel unusually well. The spots and ulcers of the llesh, insensibly dis appeared his strength soon revived, and at the end of two months ho returned to his service entirely cured sound and strong. Tins marvellous cnio attracted tho notice of other lepers, who immediately sought the samo abode and with complete success. They made public their cure, of which tlio authenticity and the means hv which it was effected, wero verified by a committee of scientific physicians. A number of lepers aficr a short residence on tho Guano island of Chuiclias, nuar Pis ca, returned entirt'ly restored, fresh and agile. The facts in their cases aro estab lished on tho authority of an official medi cal examination, instituted by order of the government of Peru, and of which the Re port is preserved among tlieir archives. Moreover, a general commission from the uospiiuis ui v,ihii n.ia sum nu.m-.uua to one of tho islands of its tcirilory which abound in Guano ; nnd the report is that j iiiuu iiimiui . u.., nn ii u iii, i vi.iM.-... restoration is anticipated by tlio physi cians. Theso facts scum imposing, and will doubtless attract the attention of chemists and physicians. A LARGE PEARL. An orphan hoy about 12 or -14 yeais of age, living in tho neighborhood nf Southland, ut tho mouth of tho Cumberland river, obtains a scanty means necessary for his support by fishing. Ho does not content himself with following Ins vocation alone in the vicinity of his'humblo abode, but ofien extends his ex cursions to the Tcnnesseo river. Returning recently from ono of these ex cursions, with his basket filled with the re wards of his industry, tho youthful nngler of fered them for sale to one of his customers.

He asked the boy how ho came hy il. Tho latter replied that ho had found it, with others of n smaller size, in muscle shells which hu had picked up, whilst fishing on the bank of tho Tennessee liver, not far above its mouth lliat ho had thrown tho rest away, but had kept this because it was "big, while and pretty." Tho gentleman asked him what lie would take for the stone. Hosiidn hit or two just as ho pleased. " No, my littlu fellow," said tho gentleman, "you must not sell this pretty thing for a hit or two it is worth a great deal more. It is a pearl, I think, of some value. 1 will take it with me to Nash ville, u hence it shall be sent to the North and sold, nnd tho proceeds shall bo applied to your education." Tho boy readily con sented, and tho gentleman, on arriving in Nashville, submitted tho pearl to tho examin ation of Mr. Campbell, who at once pro nounced it lo bo ono of the handsomest and most valuable pearls hu had over seen. Ho will not venture to say what Us exact value . may be, but judging, ho says, from tho sizo of thai which is placed in the snuff-box sent to Mr. Van Buren when President, by the Imaum of Muscat, wu believe, and which was valued at blUUU, ho is convinced lliat fcoUU, would not bo too high an estimate to put up- 1 on tho fisher boy's pearl.

This is ono of tho most essential points in feeding animals. If given irregularly, tho ani mal indeed consumes his food, but he soon ac quires a restless disposition, is disturbed at eve ry appearance of his feeder, and is never in tint quiet state so necessary to the taking on of fat. It is surprising how readily any animal acquires habits of regularity in feeding, and how soon the intluenco of this is full in tho improvement of his constitution. When at tho regular hour the pig has had his pudding, or the sheep its tur nips, they compose thcinselrcs to rest, with the consciousness that their digestion is not to be unseasonably disturbed, "or tlieir quiet broken by unwonted invitation to cat. All creatures fatten much faster in tho dark than in tho liglit a fact only to bo accounted for by their greater quiet.
