Poetry. in Autuiuu Fancy. by geobge cooper. The apple-trees up in the orchard. This breezy autumnal u.orn, Are tossing their heads m a lrolic And laughing the year to acorn. Around us the dowers arc lading, And grasses and h aves decay; But those merry groups on the uplands, What in the world care they? Children are picking the wind-fails, And shouting in pure delight, While the trees they nod this way and that way. . Flatuly enjoying the sight! You would say they were playing »t pastimes. And look! at aim’s length the* hold The bubbles they blow, ail shining in russet and crimson and gold. *-«uu*i**»" el S"ari*. This inscrutable and nondescript class of juvenile humanity is made the subject of a very lively paper iu. a recent number of Onre a Week. It is from the pen of the author of ‘■Flemish Interiors.” AVe subjoin an extract or two : The little rascal has lived frightfully fast; his preeosity is absolutely startling. At ten he looks fitteen, and talks like tive-and-twen ty; while liis knowledge of all he ought not to know has attained its maximum. Wc stand aghast at Iris self possession under 110-uiatter what circumstances, and as we watch his un embarrassed air and steady gait, Ids matured expression and self-conscious aspect, we men tally admit the melancholy fact, "11 n’y a plus d’eulans!” The gamin is up to everything : he smokes, he drinks, he gambles; but then we must remember, if be indulge in the vices of a man, he is often expected also to exercise the strength and the skill of one. Many a gamin is the soutien de la maison; a sick fath er, a widowed mother and several young sis- , ters, often depend on his earnings for their i daily bread: of course it is only bread: still it is he who gets it for them, and gets it bravely, too. But unhappily—though as naturally—if a man. he is also a child, and in growing into the one, lie has not grown out of the other; so that his frolics, and the vagaries to which, often in spite of himself, he is wont to yield, are disasterous to others as well as to himsell, and when the mischiet is done, he is the first to lament it. How the gamin ever learns anything is a mystery which has never bsen solved; one of his peculiarities consisting in the tact that he is entirely self taught, lie takes in knowl edge—Heaven knows all that it includes!— just as he does air and sunshine, i:i his pere grinations through the ciowdedand instruc tive rues de Paris. There is a great deal to be learnt there, tmd lie learns it. Put him to school and you make uothing at all of him. The be3t you can hope of his future is tiiatone day he will naturally grow into a Zouave, for he is one in embryo already, and no power we know of eqjild train him into a domesticated character. “Tell me, my child,1’ said a cure one even ing to one of me most promising, at the clone of a long lecture on the subject, “how many Gods ate there ?” “Two M’sieur le Cure,’' promptly replied the boy. “Two Gods!” exclaimed the miserable cure, aghast, and wondering what he could have said to leave such an expression. “Two Gods! Mon Dieu! Mon Dieu! What can you mean?” “Why,’’ replied the imperturbable catechu men, “of course I have not forgotten there ware three to begin with, but as the Jews made away with one, there can be only two left.” In the same class was another with whom his Reverence had taken equal pains. “Eli bien, mon petit,” enquired he of this urchin in a conciliating tone, can you tell me in what manner our Lord was put to death ?” “O yes, m’sieur; the Jews guillotined him.” “Guillotined him, my dear child! Why, do think a little. The guillotine was not invent ed a hundred years ago, and our Lord was put to death something like two thousand yeats back.” "Ah yes, that is true,” was the ready re sponse ; "they must have shot him There is a provoking aptitude in the gamin's repartees, which are prompt and flasumg as the lightning, for he is always equal to the oc casion. “How old are you?-’said we once to a di minutive urchin at the comer of the Boule vard, selling newspapers, counting his receipts, and giving change with the accuracy and gravity of a practised baud. "Six,’’ was the curt reply. “Anil how long have you teen in the busi ness ?” With a roguish sparkle of his eye, which we shall not readily forget, and stooping down to arrange his stock-in-trade on the pavement, with the attitude of a man who is quite capa ble of attending to two things at once, he re joined,— “How long ? O, ever since I was a child.” We very much doubt if he ever had been one I "Give me to-morrow's Mouiteur, petit,” said we oue day to a young imp of the same calling, and no( much older. "Sorry 1 can t oblige you, sir; sold them all last week,'' replied the promising youth, who was not to be caught napping. However, we may forgive the tollies of his youth when we reflect on what he often be comes; if he sows wild oats, he not unffe quently reaps a harvest of glory, and stores up a world-wide fame. In what country in the i world shall we tind a regiment like the Zou aves'/yet the majority of the dauntless fol lows spring Irom this origin. We have all heard of Eugene Libaut, a non cunmissioned officer of this brave cotps, the first who ascended the heights of Sebastopol, uud planted the flag of France upon its here tofore impregnable summit. His general well discerned the stutf of which he was made; he placed the French standard in his hands, simply saying, “C’esi le drapeau signal—patiez.” And it was enough: Libau darted from the trenches, leading alter him the whole column. Struck <yn the head as he reached the ditch by t a heavy stone, this intrepid young follow did I not slacken his progress; he continued to 1 scale the heights, regardless of the shower of projectiles which assailed him, and, overcom ing ail obstacles, he gained his point, (or the colors of the First Division were seen floating from the llalakolf tower, foiming a rallying j point, totind which the allies grouped them- I selves and maintained their post with charac teristic determination. Eugene Libaut, the enfantperdu of the Ma lakoti’. began lite as a Gamin de Paris. j Sketch of Ike Piuniaa Chamber of Dep uties. A correspondent at Berlin sends to the Paris Journal La France an interesting description of the hall in which the deputies of the Prus sian Parliament meet, and of the most prom inent leaders. The writei says: The chamber is situated iu the Donbof- I platz, in the center of the city; the building i3 I a very ordinary one, differing but little from j the surrounding nouses. After having trav- i ersed a court the visitor arrives at the hall of i sitting through lovf and dark corridors, mu ’h resembling the passage^ in the Couciergerie of I Patis. Two stories must lie ascended to reach 1 the public tribunes. The hail, oblong in lorm, is covered with dark red paper, and lighted by J two large openings, in the roof. As it is cold ! in winter and hot in summer the deputies find it very tucoLvenienb The speakers address the house either irom their places or from a smalt tribune placed below the president's seat. The whole progressionist party U seat- i ed to the left ot that functionary, who has in j front of him the centre, placed between him | and the ministers, the conservatives sitting on j his right. M. do Forhenbeck, advocate, is the I president, and named by the chamber; he is a young man, with a fair complexion and a very ■ mild aspect, but making liis observations at j times wilh considerable vivacity; the cham- i ber, however, receive! them with deference.— | He is the mediator of the assembly. In the centre, AI. Viucke, an old man, with j white hair and prominent features, is the 1 most influential member of hjs party; he is a brilliant speaker, and often supports the poll- | cy of the government. Near him is the cele- ! brated AI. Simpson, who presided over the as sembly of Frankfort, and brought the imperial j crown to King Frederick William; he is held ! in great repute as a lawyer. On the right good speakers are lew in num ber. The member of this party who rises most frequently is AI. Wagner, the founder of , the Kreutz Zeitung. He was formerly Uberai, ' hut a great change has come over his opin- l ions; having become a high lauciiouary, he delenas with ardor the policy of Count Bis marck. His solemn language and very un prepossessing countenance do not effect much towards conciliating the good will ol the pro F xiSl^ pll !lic’ 'yfi°st‘i,avoi'ite, on the contrary, Is Ai. Twesfen. this latter personage, a judge in the Berlin tribunal, U a little man With fair hair and beard; he expresses himself with a I nrm voice and entergetic lucidity • ue coe3 straight to his adversary and presses him with arguments replete with lozic, which excite tempests on the side of the right. Near him is M. Waldeck, member of the Supreme Tribunal (Court of Cassation), who speaks frequently and defends constitutional rights with all the authority of his position. His marked features and white liair attract attention, and his prolixity is pardoned iu vir tue ot his age and gravity. In front of him is seated AT. Wircliow, professor of anatomy at Berlin, witii a forehead yellow like ivory, and a dark brown beard beginning to be silvered by age. You know well his taleu; and bis Influence over his own party, and you cannot have forgotten the provocation addressed to him by Count de Bismarch, who felt offended by the attacks made on his policy by the emi nent professor. Au L“l: *e,t there are also to be found 51. Sdiulz-TMitseli, a man perhaps the best knowu,.and certainly the m« popular in all Prussia; he has devoted his whole life to the laboring classes, whoso associates, have found in him their most eloquent an i zealous champion. He is still full of vivacitv and is constantly moving about bom one part ot the chamber to another to confer with his potlcal .rieuds. Lastly, we have Doctor Ja coby whose bald head and aquiline nose im part an original character to his physiognomy • you are acquainted with his republican opin ions, of which he makes no mystery. He ■ especially the man of strong eonrictlons, ney er swerving from his path, but marching on straight to his object without earing whether he is lollowed or not by the multitude. For cible in bis delivery, bespeaks tlie truth with out disguise, in the keenest and most incisive language. No ribbons or uniforms are to be seen in the chamber, simplicity prevailing ev erywhere. ^_ MEDICAL. TEH GREAT ENGLISH REMEDY.

Caution to the Public. Every intelligent aud thinking person must know that remedies handed out lor general use should have their efficacy established by well tested experience in the hands of a regularly educated physician, whose preparatory studies tit him for all the duties he must raliil; yet the‘country is flooded with poor nostrums . and cure-alls, puri»orting to Ikj the lx?st in the world, which are not only useless, but alwavs injurious. The unfortunate should be particular in selecting his physician, as it is a lamentable yet incontroverti ble fact, that many syphilitic patients arc made mis erable with ruined constitutions by maltreatment from inexperienced physicians in general practice, tor It is a point generally conceded by the best svpUilogra plien, tluit the study and management of those come plaints should engross the whole time of those who would be competent and successlUl in their treat ment and cure. The inexperianced general practi tioner. having neither opportunity nor tirnu to mak liiuiseif acquainted with their pathology, conimonly pursues one system of treatment, in most cases rank- i ing an indiscriminate use of that antiquated aud dan gerous weapon, the Mercury.
