THE OLD GUARD, A Monthly Magazine, Devoted to Literature, Science and Art, and the Political Principles of 1770 and 1787. C. CHAUNCEY BURR, Emtou. The success of The Old Guaud has been as remarkable as it ought to be gratifying to the friends of a true American literature. It has steadily doubled its circulation each year of its publication, and its publishers have found it necessary to annually enlarge it, to meet the full expectations of its patrons, as well os to realize their own ideal of a First-class Family and Literary Magazine, combined with sound political principles. To still farther carry out (his design, The Old Guard for 1807 will be printed on new type, and enlarged Sixteen ad ditional Pages, niakins in all nearly One Thou sand Pages of reading matter yearly for the low price of three dollars ! Arrangements have also been made to secure the very best literary talent of the country. We will eommenccin the Jan uary number a thrilling Romance, written ex pressly for The Old Guard, entitled, Joscclyn; A Tale of the Revelation. By Wai. Gilmore Simms, Esq., of S. C., the poor of Cooper and Irving, taking the rea-, der back to the birth of the Aine r i ean principle of government, and introducing him to the rebels of 177 G. John Esten Cooke, Esq., of Virginia, author of “Surry of Eagle’s Nest,” Ac., Ac., will furnish a series of graphic sketches,entitled “The Battles of Virginia,” while bur present corps'of contributors, with some now ones will continue to furnish articles, making the Magazine second to none in point of literary attraction and ability. Politically, The Old Guard will stand in the future as in the past, faithfully guarding the Constitution as it came from the hands of Washington, with out acquiescing in any of the •nbvernon*, under the title of “amendments.” It will be contin ued upon-the grand idea that “all is not lost,” while virtue and intelligence remain with any portion of the people.

Rereimy conscience was taught By a moral quite fraught , With sentiments holy and true; Then onward I travelled To, find it unravelled ,; What Hiram intended to do. Very soon to the East I made known mj’ request, And‘‘light” by command did attend ; When lo ! I perceived, In due form revealed, A Master, and Brother, and Friend. Thus far I have stated, ’ ■ And simply related, What happened when I was made free, But I’ve “passed” since then, And was “raised up again Xb a sublime and ancient degree. Then onward I marched, That I might be “Arched,” And find out those treasures long lost; When behold a bright flame. From the midst of which came A voice which my ears did accost. 1 Through the “vails” I then went, And succeeded at length The “Sanctum Sanctorum” to find ; By the “Signet” I gained, And quickly obtained Employment which suited my mind. In the depths I then wrought, And most carefully sought For treasures long hidden there ;

• And by labor and toil, I discovered rich spoil, Which are kept by the craft with due care. Having thus far arrived, I further contrived : Ajnong valiant Knights to appear ; And as pilgrim and kuight, I stood ready to fight, Nor Saracen foe did I fear. For the widow distressed, There’s a chord in my breast For the helpless and orphan I feel; And my sword I could draw To maintain the pure law Which the duty of Masons reveals. Thus have I revealed Yet wisely concealed What the “free and accepted” well know ; I am one of a baud Who. will faithfully stand As brothers wherever we go. The Poor Musician & his Mate. One beattti.uil summer day there was a great festival in the large park at Vienna. This park is called by the people the Prater. It is full of lovely trees, splendid walks, aud little rustic pleasure bouses. At the time of which I am speaking, there were people there; some young and some old. and many strangers, too. All those who were there enjoyed such a scene as they probably had never be held; Be that as it may, the Prater was almost covered with the crowds of people. Among the number were organ grinders, the beggars, and the girls who played on harps. There stood an old musician. He had once been a soldier, but his pension was not enough to live on. Still he did not like to beg. There fore, bn this particular festival day, he took his old violin and played, under an old tree iiuthe park. He had a good old faithful dog with him, which lay at his feet), and he held ah old hat in his mouth, so that the passerby might cast coins in it for the poor old man. On the day of the festival which I have mentioned, the dog sat before him •with the old hat. Many people went by and heard the old man playing, but they did not throw much in. 1 wonder the people did not give him more, for he was truly a pitiable object. His face was covered with scars received in bat tle, and he wore a long gray coat, such as he had kept ever since he had been in.the army. He even had his old sword by his side, and would not consent to walk in the streets without carrying his trusty friend with him. He had only three, fingers on bis right had, so he had to hold the bow of the of the violin with these. A bullet had taken off the two others—and almost at the same time a cannon ball had taken off one of his legs. The last money he had 1 had been spent in buying new strings for his violin, and he was now playing with all his strength the old marches he had learned when a boy with his father. He looked sad enough as he saw the multitude pass by in their strength, and youth, and beauty; but whenever they laughed, it was like a dagger to his soul, for he knew that i ’ very evening he would go to bed sup perless, hungry as he was. and lie on a straw couch io a little garret room. His old dog was better off, for be had often found a bone here and there to satisfy .. the cravings of hunger. It was late in the afternoon, his hopes were almost Hide itHc v?eW : both gnidg. doWn togthor.>b ; ftd‘bftd i plartfd his old ■ violin dowh Hy diis ante and leaned - a- ; . gainst an old tree. 1 The tears streamed down his scarred Cheeks. Tie thought! that none of that giddy (frowd stew him. but he wa? much mistaken. Not farioff stood a gentleman v 4n fine clothes, who had &' kind heart. lie ' listened to the old musibiaU, sind when he saw that no one gave him anything, his heatt was loathed -With sympathy; He finally wont to the dog, and’Tooking into the hat, saw only tWoTtotle copper coins ini it.

His mute looked at him with great wonder; he was so stirred that he could hardly believe that it was his old violin that such beautiful sounds came from. Every note was like a pearl.— The. first piece had übt been finished be fore the people, observing the strange sight, and hearing Such wonderful um-i sic, stopped a moment in cariosity.— Everyone saw th&t <lic fine looking gentleman was playing for the poor old mauf bnt none knew who he was. Byrand-by’the people began to drop, money into the hat, and the old ’dog, seemed delighted -to receive'-so many • pieces of gold for his master.; The cir cle of hearers became larger. I’Even the coachmgn of the splendid carriages begged the people!aside to stop and hear the music, titilj the money increased. Geld, silver and topper coin Were thrown into the hat by old and young! The dog began to growl. t ,: ! ti • What in the world could be the mat-, • ter? One gentleman, as he dropped a large piece of money into the hat, struck him on the nose, and he came very near.,letting the hat and money fall. But it soon became so heavy that he could hold it no longer. ,* T . “Empty your hat, ojd .man, ’’ said the man, “and we. will fill it again for you.” He pulled out an old handkerchief, wrapped that money in it,,and put it in his violin bag. The stranger kept on playing, and the people cried out “BravoJ bravo” in great joy. He played one tune and then another—even the children seemed carried away with rapture. At last he played that splendid sonnet. “God bless the Emperor Francis.” All caps and hats flew off their heads, for the r people loVed their Emperor. The song final ly came to a close—the hour was ended —and the musician handed the violin to the old man “T!hank you,” said;&f< dslny God bless you,” and he disappeared in the crowd. “Who is he ? who is he ?” said the people. “Where did lie come from?” A certain person sitting in one of the . coaches said : “I know him. It is Alexander Boucher, the distinguished violinist.—' It is just like him. He saw , that the old man needed assistance and he de termined to help him the best way he could. The people then gave three cheers for Boucher, and put money into the old man’s hat. When he went home that evening he was richer than he ever was before. When he went to bed he folded his hands and prayed that God might bleps good Boucher, so that when he became au old man he might have good 1 friends* ' were two happy men that night | in Vienna. Of course the poor old musician rejoiced, now that he was out of want; but of more! value ti> him than all his money was the cOusolatiod that | somebody had proved -a friend to him. ( For it does us all good to know that we I have friends—even though they are of } no further advantage to us. There was ' another that was happy and that was the good Boucher. - Mow could he go ( to bed that night without thanking God for putting it in his to be kind to ftie old friendless, starving 1 soldier. 2 f * I Another Wife.—-Matrimonial ad s vices from Utah Mr. Brigham t Young has taken a forty-fifth,wife, s the. actual number of fife family not be b ing increased, as No. 23 died the Other 3 day. This looks very little like aban r don ing .polygamy, ,w 5 u; .m-.iii-n ; tini.i ~ ] * a A Bonnet Story.— A Pittsfield t (Mass.) editor tells that a fashionable 1- lady of that town recently wore her a bonnet to church wrong side before, s though there were a. few people who a knew the difference between the back y and front, and lie adds that “none pf n those religiously inclined noticed the t error. Venice. i Venice is a-oolleetiou of 115 islets, .divided by 147 canals, connected by : 380 Bridges, and pierced by 2,050 in* ) finitely narrow and labarinthine streets; Almost every foot of the city -is built Upon piles. Each, of its 15,000 houses js washed by the sea water, and of its 130,000 people not ope ever rode upon 'wheels down the mainland of bis city, 'Making a broad spiral ribbon of blue sea, ' three timeeas wide as Broadway,through the longest diameter of Venice, passes the Grand Canal, the most wonderful water panorama in the world-—in no degree like the dull brick ‘facing of the Flemish and Hatch city canals, but a highway to palaces, into which are burned the dyes of a southern sun, and all the floridness of the Goth blossoms in their architecture. Three bridges only cross this grand canal, two of them practical ad modem; the middle bridge fumed'in all lands, is the llialto, a high archway of shops and multitudes, un der which like docile crocodiles, gon dolas shoot their beaks of steel! Upon the surface of this peopled archipelago there are 105 open places qr Qumpi. Most of theta were spaces to give some church perspective; but iwp r tnirds of the way down the city, whete it narrows to almost its smallest girth, lies the only square of greater length than a sling’s throw, the won drous Piazza of San Marco. This piaz za is like nothing in America. . Prom the days of Petrarch, who loved it, it has been a marvel. It is a great long square, 600 feet long by 230 feet wide, paved with hewn blocks of mar ble, bordered on three sides by a mar ble palace, faced with long arcades, which show gilded cafes and splendid shops of jewelry beneath them; and on the third side, or rather at the head of it, the Cathedral of St.. Mark, the pa tron of Venice, rises venerable and plentiful of domes, the richest, if not the ~ [purest, religious edifice in the world. a--! •i.Before its carcev the bronze horse of St. Mark, part of the. Crusades, and from the paved space before them, , set iteide, So as not to mar the perspective, rises the great Campanile or bell-tower pearly a thousand years old, and to the height of three hundred and fifty feet —about twice that, if I do not mistake, of Trinity Church oil Broadway, A second tower near by holds a zodiacal clock, rung!by Moorish giantu, and fa rcing it from the opposite corner of the piazza, reaches at right angles quite down to the harbor side, the piazetta of St. Mark, a smaller area, flanked with the Doge’s palace, a grand edifice, ma ny-hued, built on pointed arches,‘and reaching on its farther end along the splendid quay. This pizeatta is closed, almost to the water edge, by two granite columns, each of a single stone, crested, the one witli a statue of Saint George, the other with a Winged lion. Going down between them, in past times, the hoary Admirals have been escorted to their gondolas, followed by the anxious Doge, and sail ed from the very shadows of these col-’ umns to fight out the quarrel of the re public on distant seas. Behind the ducol palace are the pri soners of State, whose outlet is the famed Bridge of Sighs, of late the sepulchres of the Italian patriots.— From this Moh, or State quay, the view is wonderful of the domes and campaniles on three opposite islands, and the broad blue paths of the canals, ploughed with swift gondola's. Far down the island is the arsenal where the Venetians fitted out their fleets, as Dante describes them. This is Venice, a labyrinth of Is lands palaces, churches, founded by fugitives who grew up scadogs, and are now to be ushered into the first day of independence. African Emigration. There seems to be some probability of a very considerable African emigration to the Northern and Western States;— The negroes of the South hear so much of the excessive friendship for their race in those regions, of the great de mand for labor and high price of wages, that Jthey are disposed to leave the South where there is so little money, and try their fortunes in a land where capi tal is redundant, and where they can find remunerative occupation lor the males in fields, workship and mines; and for the woman as house servandP— But these are by no means the only, or even the strongest inducements that prompt them to emigration. They -have been assured that in the Northern and Western States, they will secure political and social privileges which they cannot expect at the South ; that their children will be educated for little or nothing at -the free schools; that they will themselves bo permitted to vote ,too 4 X : he. election of two negroes to the Massachusetts legislature will produce an inspiring effect upon the minds of the Africans of the South, and induce them to hurry to a land where such a high official future is in store for them and their posterity. We do not "blame them for this, but, on the contrary, think they would be Very foolish not to improve their condition, if they are satisfied they will be im proved by the proposed change. We take it fpr granted that Mr. Wendell Phillips will make baste to organize mi African Emigrant Aid Society, and contribute its funds with his usual lib erality.— Balt.

Adatu and Mary, his wife, were very good members of the church, good sort of folks any way, quite industrious and thriving iu thc World. Whenever the minister called to make' Mary a visit,which was often, sho con trived to have a glass of good toddy made, and the minister never refused t<r imbibe. Alter a while Adam got to following the example of the minister to fUch an extent that he became a drunkard— drank up everything he had and all he could get. Mary and Adam became very poor in consequence of his follow ing the minister’s example so closely, but the good minister 'continued still to get his glass of toddy. One day he called in and told Mary he was goinv for a week; —should return on Friday— and handed her a book containing the Catechism, and told bur when he re turned he Should expect her to answer the questions. Mary said yes, and laid away tho, book carefully. But Mary, like a good many others, forgot it until the very Friday that the good minister was to return. “What shall I do?" said she; “the minister is to be here to-day, gnd I haven’t looked into the book he gave me 1 How can I answer the questions?” “I can tell you,” said Adam; “give me a quarter, and let me go over to Smith’s and gCtsome good nim and you can answer him'with a glass of toddy.” Mary took the advice, gave Adam a , 9 u |irtcr and a jug, and off he started.— After getting his jug filled, and on his way back, Adam concluded to taste the rum* One taste followed another, until he tumbled over a pile of rocks and broke the jug and lost all the rttm.— Adam managed to stagger.home. Soon as he got into the house, Mary asked very anxiously for the rum. Poor Adam managed to stammer out that he stumbled over a pile of rocks, and broke the j,ug and spilled the rum. Mary* was in a fix—Adam drunk— the minister coming-—the rum gone— and the questions unlearned. But here comes the . minister! It won’t do for the man of God to- sec Adam drunk, so slic, for want of a better place to hide him, sent him under the bed. By tho time he was fairly under, in eame tho minister; After sitting a few moments, he asked Mary if she could answer the question.-r --“llow did Adam fall ?” Mai*y turned her head first one way and then the other, and finally stam mered out, — I. ■: “lie fell over a pile of rocks,” It was now the minister’s turn to look black, but he ventured another question, “Where did he hide himself after the fall ?” Mary looked at the minister, then at the bed, but finally she spoke out with, “Under the bed, sir ! There, Adam, you may conic bat; he knows all about ,it.” The good minister retired—not even waiting for his glas.y of toddy. Western Maryland It ai lug ad!— The commissioners of Washington coun ty have refused the application of the President of the Western Maryland railroad, to pay monthly installment# on the subscription of stock to the road. The Contractors for the extension of the road have commenced work on the section of six miles at Union Bridge, and have bought the lumber for their shanties, on all the sections from Ha gerstown to Smithsburg, which are now being built. This looks encouraging. A letter on our table informs os that Mr. Haines, of Carroll county, has sue* Ceeded admirably in securing the right of way for the Western Maryland Rail road, east of the mountains, and inquires how the work in this region is progres sing on our side. He has not learned tb what extent Mr, Zeller and Mr. Zeigler have settled for the right of way here; This is an important con sideration, which, if managed with ad dress and' energy, and in the right spirit, will operate as a great saving to the company. Later, we are advised that the right of way in this county has been secured to a very considerable extent, at a cost, however, 1 greatly exceeding that by which the right has been obtained east of the mountain. —Hagerstown Mail. Planets Destroyed. The belief that this world is ultimate ly to be destroyed by, fire is supported by the discovery that such a fate has befallen far firger planets than ours. French astronomers assert that no fewer than fifteen hundred fixed stars have vanished from the firmament within the last three hundred,years. Tycho Brahe gives an interesting account of a bril liant star of the largest size which, on* account of its singular radiance, had become the special object of his daily observation for several months, during which the star gradually became paler until final disappearanca. La Place States that one of the vanished fixed stars on the northern hemisphere afford ed indutibable evidence of having been consumed by fire. At first the star was of a dazzling white, next of a glowing red and yellow 1 aster, and finally it be came pale and ash colored. The burn ing of the star lasted sixteen months, when this sunny visitor, to which per haps a whole series of planets may have owed allegiance, finally departed and became invisible forever. • i Cubing Warts. —The following ts a newspaper received for the caring of warts: Stick a pin under the wart, close down to the flesh; then apply a lamp or even a match to the head of the pin until it hrfats it so as to raise a blis ter, and the wart is cured' and disap pears never to return.
