EVENING STAR A THEM TOR A POST. I've Md tbe hards ^chanting lay* That apeak of beauty, grace and lo I 've heard the poet"" song of praise AddKwiod to T?a bright arb above. But yet I know a sweeter sphere For bright poetic love to roam, To picture all the hean holds dear within the sacred fold of home. Th# wanderer, as he onward speeds Along his p-th, by night ana day, The voice of songsters scarcely heeds. To cheer him on his lonely way. Yet If one whisper softly tells Of friends within the cottage dome. With tenderness his bosom swells In recollectioa of his home. Oh, home! that spot of Joy and bliss, Tho' far from all tay pleasures now, Yet feel I still my parents' kiss Pressed lovingly upon mv brow. Then, home fort-ver dear, farewell, Th- world in sadness I must roam, Yet time can never half dispel The fond remembrance of my Lome. K W. General Pictos's Drtermkatior.?I once heard an anecdote of Picton, from an officcr, who wu himaelf at Waterloo?Picton, I was told by this officer, was wounded the day be fore Waterloo, but had concealed his hurt, And with the most heroic fortitude remained in the field. During tbo night, however, tho agony of his wound obliged him to send for a surgeon, who remained with him until dawn; and, on his leaving, Picton thus ad dre?ied him: " You say that my wound is dangerous? mortal; that I am unfit for duty, and must bo represented so to the Duke ?" '?Such is my opinion," said tho medical man. " I think it would be impossible for you to take command of your division." 4' Leave mo t? ju<ige of that sir," said Pie ton, " acl in the meanwhile, allow me to ask jou a question. From your long knowledge of me, do you consider mo capable of strictly keeping my word ?" '?I have every cause to believe so," re turned the surgeon, "but why the question, ?ir Thomas?" "Simply for th*i3 reason," returnod Picton. " that I have made up my mind to be in the fie'd with my brigade; and I give you my word of honor, both as a gentleman and a sol dier, that, if you place my name in your re port as unfit for duty, I will shoot you with my own hand " The surgeon shrugged his shoulders shook Picton by the hand, and withdrew. The gallant gonorai's name wa,- accordingly omitted amongst the wounded; rod, a? nti wish had often been expressed, that he might dio amid3t the blaze of battle, he wa? gratified. Execution or Rebels at Castor, China. It is stated in the China Mail, that the thou tands of men brought to Canton as prisoners ?r.re now being decapitated at the rate of one hundred and fifty a day. The editor, who witnessed some of the executions, says : With a sharp knife a ?lice was cut out from under each arm. A low suppressed fearful groan from each followed the operation of the weapon. Dexterous as butchers, a slice was taken successively by the operators from the calves, the thighs and then from oach breast. M'e may suppose, we may hope, that by thus time the sufferers were insensible to pain; but I hey were not dead. The knife was then ftuck into the abdomen, which was ripped up to the breast-bone, and the blade twisted round ami round hp the heart was separated from its holding. Up to this moment, having once set eye." on the victim under torture, they had become fixed as by f.ieoiuation; but they could be rivited there no longor. A whirling sensation ran through the brain, and it wa& with difficulty we could keep ourselves from failing. But this was not all; the lashings were then cut, and the head, being tied by the tail to a luu'o of across, were severed from the body, which was then dismembered ol' hands and arm*, foet and legs, separately. The Imperial Visit.?Tha English papers are filled with ascounts of Queen Victoria's rccent vint to France. The following shows how the Emperer took the Queen to the opera: When the Queen entered the state box lean ing on the Emperor's am , the whole house rose and g-ive them a hearty heer, which her Ma jesty several times ackn< wledged with that in lini.e ^raoe which everyoody in this country remarks. The Emperor, as if wishing it to be understood that the oheen* beloved to his illustrious guest, did not bow to the audience himself, or if ho did. it was in the slightest possible manner, Their majesties were fol lowed by Prince Albert and the Empress. Prince Xapoleon and the Princess Matailde. The Queen and tha Empress took their seats tide by side in the ceotre of the box. The Em peror sat on the Queen's right hand, and next to him was the Prince Napoleon. Prince Al bert was next to the Empress on her left hand; and on his left w&s the Princess Mathilda.
