The Colonel. ?r doubt, felt ''pretty well" .bout the tin,, he penned the article : "Invitations are out for the most en blime and magnificent nuptials ever cel. ebrated upon our planet?the wedding ol the rough Atlantic to the fair Pacific occan. An iron necklace has been thrown across the Isthmus; the banns arc al ready published, and the bridal j arty will leave this city on Monday next, Feb 5, to perform the august ceremony. Sonic seven millions of d< liars have been s|>eut in achieving this union; but, as the fruit. thereof will soon show, it has bven mo ney well invested. Across the bosom ol the Isthmus, the golden products of our Pacific borders and the incalculable treasures of the distant Orient, are des tined to flow in unremitting streams. The stupendous enterprise of uniting the two oceans which embrace the graat* er portion of the globe, we are proud to say, was conceived and executed by oui own citizens, in the frowuing face of ob stacles that none but Americans could have overcome. The swamps, moun tains, aud miasmas of the Isthmus drove all the engineers of Surope home in de spair who contemplated the gigautic uu dertaking, and the Herculean work was left to the hands and hearts of men in whose vocabulary 'there is no such word as fail.' "An enterprise so full of poetic sublim ity, and so fraught with interests co ex tensive with the whole earth, may well command the admiration of the world; and deserve to bo fitly inaugurated by such a bridal piyty as are now preparing to embark as witnesses of the gr&ud con summation. It is a theme for such an Epithalamiuin as was never sung in Greece, and an occasion for a world-ring ing burst of eloquence that makes one deplore afresh that the tongiie of Web sler is mute in death." Office Bmoixg-Corwix's Advicr.? During Mr. Corwin's administration in the Treasury Department, a young man presented himself to him for a clerkship. Thrice was he refused ; and stiil he made a fourth effort. His perseverance and spirit of determination awakened a friendly interest in his welfare, and the Secretary advised him, in the strongest possible terms, to abandon his purpose and go to the West, if he could not do better outside the Departments. " My young friend," said he, "go to the !?orth west ; buy one hundred and sixty acres of government land?or, if you have not got the money to purchase, squat on it; get you an ax and a mattock ; put up a log cabin for a habitation, and raise a little corn and potatoes : keep your con scicnce clear, and live like a "freeman ; your own mister, with no one to give you orders, and without dependence upon anybody. Do that, and you will bccome honored and respected, influential and rich. But accept a clerkship here, and you sink at once all independence, your energies become relaxed, and you are un fitted in a few years for any other and more independent position- I may give you a place to day, and kick you outCto morrow ; and there's another man over at the White House who can kick m?out, and the people by-and-by can kick Arm out; and so we go. But if you own an acre of land it is your kingdom, and your cabin your castle?you are a sovereign, and you will feel it in the throbbing of your pulse, and every day of youi life would assure me of your thanks for having thus advised you." Dbcidsdlv Rich !?A vhort time ago the Opera of the "Barber of Seville'' was produced at the grand Opera of Paris. A certain Mr. Lecomte, being a great admi rer of Rossini in general, and the "Bar ber of Seville' in particular, purchased a ticket for the reserved seat by paying five francs. He very quietly looked for his seat, and after some trouble, found it occupied bv a gentlemen, who perempto rily refused to give it up. Mr. Lecomte very quietly went to the Commissary of Police, who is generally in Paris very easily found, entered a complaint and commenced a suit against the manage ment. He claimed damages to the amount of 150 francs for being deprived from wit nessing the performances of his favorite opera, and demanded a repetition as soon as possible for his own special benefit, and in addition 20 francs damages for every day's delay. Judgment was given in his favor, and the management was glad to settle with him by paying a few hundred francs. This very naturally led to some inquiries abot the person who refused to give up the seat, and after a great deal of trouble it was found that a*id seat had been occupied bv a dead head. The* management, in all probability, had giv en him the seat expecting that he would quietly submit to being turned out if it was wanted. A Russian Pig in tus Pokb.?The German Universal Gazette has the fol lowing amusmg anecdote, stated to have occurred before Sebastopol. The French having remarked an unusual activity among the garrison of the Quarantine Fort, were anxious to know the cause of it, and for that purpose were determined to get hold of some Russian sentinel at the eatposts. But that was no easy matter, the sentinels being usually on the alert, and taking good care to keep out of danger. At last, a Zouave offered to furnish the article in question. That very night, a watchful Muscovite heard a rustling in the bushes. He cried, "Who goes there ?" but the only answer he re ceived was a grunt. Thinks he to him self, "This is some fat pig that has de serted from the enemy. Bless me, if I oaly could get hold of it, and smuggle it into the fort, so that our officers may not lay hold of it V. With this view ha re turns the grunt; the conversation be comes interesting to both parties, and at THE WKKiLY 8IAR.

Sam Slick's Wis* Saws.?Hope is a rleasant companion, but an unsafe fneod. lefll do for a traveling companion on a pinch, but h? i? not the man for jour banker. Take your daily braad and be thank ful; but don't pray to the Lord to lay up for you the loaves for years to come, to make you rich. Many a man has died about the time his great baking of bread came out of his oveu. A woman who wants a charitable heart, wants a pure mind. The measure of a female's judgment must b* her own feelings ; and if she jndje harshly, her feelings are not deMcste. Her experience is her own and if that is adverse, it ought at least to impose silence. Inno cence is not suspicious, bat guilt is al wavs ready to turn informer. Thinks I to myself, a man may l? President, aud no great shakes either, for, after all, lie is only the lead-horse of a team. He has got the go in him, that's all; but he can't hold back, which is a great matter, both in statesmen and horses. For, if he slacks up, he is rid over by those behind him, and lie gets his ne<*k broke?he must go or die. Work ! Kern your own pork, and see how swtet it will be. Work, and i?ee hove well you will be. Work, and see how happy your family will be : for. Vie fore you know where you are, instead of repining at Providence, vou will find yourself ottering up thanks for all the numerous blessings you enjoy. It's no use talkin'. When you are down, poverty, like snow-shoes, keeps your f?ct last and prevents your rising. A man can't hope agin' hope. , ^ t 1 t A Rat Stort.?In a paragraph con. cerning the high tide of Thursday, the lloston Telegiaph records the following : 41 At the wharves, owing to the high water, a large number of rats wcie killed by unemployed laborers. The vermin were obliged to leave their holes, or re main and be drowned, and as they ap peared parties of Irishmen wailing for jobs, chased them about the docks wuh clubs and stones. In one instance the men had driven two large rats into an empty building on Commercial street, where there was no mode of egress through the door. This the two men fastened, and forming a circle, drove the animals into a corner and prepared to dispatch them. The rats, rendered des perate. sprang at the throat of the near est Irishman, and one succeeded in fast ening his long sharp teeth in the man's handkerchief. which he wore around his neck, and held his jaw tirmlv clasped un til killed. Luckily the handkerchief waa thick, so that the animal's teeth did not touch the man's throat. The rat's com panion sprang at bis intended victim, missed him, and was knocked over by a club. They were enormous, large fel lows, and wou d have made a meal for half a dozen Chinamen." Tpk Vinwjar-Facko Orvtrt.?That very able aad ubiquitous sheet, ?? an ex change paper," gives the following very plain statement, which we commend to the afflicted : There is a class of men in every com ? tnunity who go about with vinegar fae?js because thev are not appreciated as they should be, and who have a constant quarrel with what they call their desti ny. We hate such people. They are a nuisance and a pest. They make all within their influence uncom^rtable. These men have usually made a grave mistake in the estimate of their abilities, or are unmitigated asses. Wherever this fault-finding with one's condition or posi tion occurs, there is always want of solf rcspect. If you are a right down clever fellow, wash the wormwood off your lace, and show your good will by y??ur good deeds. If people feel above you. why re turn the compliment and feel above them. If they turn up your noses because you are a mechanic, or a farmer, or a clerk, turn up your nose a notch higher. If they swell when they pass you in the street, swell yourself. Deliver us from the whining fools who go around like babies, telling how people abuse tfcem, and whining because society will not take them by the collar and drag them into decency. Tb* Gold Minss op Virginia ?The gold mining interest of Virginia, it ap pears, is more extensive than m*nv per sons sre aware The Petersburg Intelli gencer gives a lists embracing fifteen of the most important mines, the aggregate value of which is estimated at * 1,700, 000. Of these, five are not worked, tor want of capital, or because their owner ship is disputed; and four, valued at $575,000, are owned bv English compa nies. The great drawback U> gold min ing in Virginia, and in other States, has been occasioned by the want of adequate machinery. It is thought this difficulty has been surmouuted by the use of the "Eureka Crushing Machine," invented by a New York mechanic. It is in use at one of the mines. The Intelligencer is of opinion that as soon as the present stress in the money market is passed gold min ing will induce capitalists to inveai their spare fnnds in that State. It also men tions that copper and silver are to be found to a great extent. 03^ Two printers in the Plymouth Rock Office, tired of taking xiyresnons on the forms of that paper, tried it on the hearts of two dauisels. After several srf ItHgs up they sue ceded in such fair jtoofs of "the matter, that the minister oi the place was called in and of the wbole four jorma folio edition, leaving them locked up for Life
