Though clouds environ now, And gladness hide her face in scorn; Put then the shadow from thy brow— No night but hath its morn Have Faith. Where’er thy bark is driven— In ealm’s disport, in tempest’s mirth— Know this—God rules the hosts of Heaven, The 'habitants of Earth. Have Love.- Not love alone for one: Butf man as man thy brother call, And scatter like the circling suii, Thy charities on all.

Lose this day Loitering—’t will be the same story To-morrow, and next more dilatory; The indecision brings its own delays, And days are lost lamenting over days. Are you in earnest ? Sieze this- very minute f What you can. do, or dream you can, begin it-; Boldness has genius, power and magic in It, Only engage, and then the mind grows heated ; Begin (t, and the work will be completed! t ------------ 3L --------- - , . , *. i t t i B c e l l a n j C L W a n t O f C o u rtesy* T h e most striking and prevailing defect in the manners of Americans is, I believe, a want of courtesy. This has arisen from the genera! equality of lights, condition and education.— And it arises in part Irorh that mauvaise honte. or shyness, so characteristic of our E n g l is h an­ cestors from whom we inherit it. A little re­ flection would remove this defect. W h a t do [ mean by courtesy and =bow is the want df it shown, do you ask? A few winters since, a well bred young foreigner came to the interior, and took lodgings at a village inn, for the pur­ pose of learning the English language. T o facilitate its acquisition, he g e n e r a lly preferred remaining in the receiving room of t h e tavern, where travellers were passing in and out. ;^Iis writing table was placed before the fire. W h e n the worn-cn came shivering in from a long drive in the stage coach, he moved his table, to the coolest com e r of the mom, mended the fire, drew chairs near it, and il they brought in foot stoves or blocks, he found the best splace to heat them. H e then returned to his own uncomforta­ ble seat, and pursued his reading or writing. T h e women profited by his civilities, without appearing to notice them. D u r i n g the whole winter he never received one word of a c k n o w l­ edgment. Not one ‘T h a n k you, sir,’ ‘You are very kind, ■S'ir,’’ or, what would have seemed inevitable. ‘P r a y don’t take that cold seat, sir.’ W h a t was the polished s tranger’s inference?-— Certainly, that the Americans were a most dis­ courteous, if not cold-hearted people. Cold-hearted we are not. These women were probably, generally impressed with the young man’s attention— one of them I knew, in relating her travelling experiences at her own fireside at night, said, ‘She should never forget a young man of thq,tavern in S. She thought she should have died with the cold before she got there, and when she went in he moved n way from the fire, and gave her the rocking chair— h u n g her cloak over the back of anoth­ er, and warmed her cloak for her, and did every thing just as if he ha l been'her own s o n l And yet this good woman had not indicated in her manners to the young man ihat sire ever saw him. H e r e there was no expression of 'he real \feeling no courtesy. I have often seen men in steamboats, in s tage­ coaches, and other pub!<c plates, rise and give their seats to the women, apd ihe women seat themselves quietly, vvith'out a look or word of acknowledgement. And so with a thousand other attentfonis which are rendered, and are received without any return. Avoid such dis­ courtesy my young friends— it is not only dis pleasing but unjust. - W e actually owe some return lor such civiliiiee, and a courteous ac. ceptance is, in most cases, the only one \that can be made. T h e s e little chance courtesies are smiles on the face of tnftnhers, and smiles are like sunshine—^ve can scarcely bave too much of either.— Miss Sedgwick.

From Fremont’s Expedition to the Rocky Mountains., A D e s p e r a t e A d v e n tu r e . W h i l e entertained on the 24ih ol April, at a spring near the Spanish trail, we were surprised by (he sudden appearance am o n g us ot two. Mexicans, a man and a boy; the name of ihe man Andreas .Fuentas, and that of the Jboy (a handsome lad eleven years old) Pablo H e r n a n ­ dez. W ith a cavalcade of about thirty horses, they had come from Pubia delos Angefos, near the Pacific ;; \had lost half *of their animals, sto­ len by the Indians, and how sought my camp for aid. Carson and Godney, two pf my men, volunteered to pursue them, with the M e x ican; and, well mounted, the three set out on the trail. In the'evening/Fuenfas returned, his horse hav­ ing failed, but Carson and Godney continued the pursuit. In the afternoon of the next day a war-whoop was heard, such as Indians make when r e turn­ ing froin'a victorious e n t e r p r is e ; and soon Car­ son and Godney appeared* driving before them a band of horses, recognized by Fuentas to be a part o f those they had Tost. T wo bloody scalps, dangling from the end o f G o d n e y V gun, an* nounced that they had overtaken the Indians, as well as the horses. T h e y had continued the pursuit alone, after Fuentas had left them,-and towards nightfall entered the mountains into which the trail led After sunset the moon gave light, and they followed the trail b y moon* light until late in the night, when^it entered a narrow defile, and was difficult to follow.— H e r e they lay from midnight till morning. Ai daylight they resumed the pursuit, and at sunrise discovered the hoi s e s ; and immediately dismounting and tying up their own, they Crept cautiously to a rising ground which intervened, from the crest of which they perceived the e n ­ campment of four lodges close by. T h e y pro­ ceeded quietly, and had got within thirty or for­ ty yards of their object, when a movement a- mong the horses discovered them to the Indians. Giving the war-shout, they instantly charged into the camp, regardless of the numbers which the four lodges might contain. T h e Indians received them with a flight of arrows, shot from their long how*, one of which passed through G o d n e y ’s shirt collar, barely passing the neck, O u r men fired their rifles upon a steady aim, and rushed in. T w o Indi­ ans were stretched upon the ground fatally pierced with bullets ; the rest fled, except a lad who was captured. T h e scalps of the fallen were, stripped oft; but in the process, one of them, who; had two balls through his body, sprang to his feet, the blood streaming from his skinned head, and uttered a hideous howl. T h e frightful spectacle appalled the stou,t hearts of our men, but they did what humanity required, and quickly terminated the agonies of the gory savage. T h e y were now masters of the camp, which Was a pretty little recess in lhe mountains, with a fine spring, and apparently safe from all inva­ sion. G r e a t preparations had been m a d e for feasting a large party,lor it was a proper place for a rendezvous, and f o r the celebration of such orgies as robbers, of the desert would delight in. Several of the best horses had been killed, s k in­ ned and cut up—-for the Indians living in moun­ tains and only coming into the p lains to rob and murder, make no other use of horses but to eat them. •.( ■Large earthen vessels were on the fire, boil­ ing and s tewing horse :beef, and several baskets containing fifty or sixty moccasins indicated the presence or expectation of a large parly. T h e y released the boy, who had given strong evidence of the stoicism or something else o f the savage character by commencing his breakfast upon a horse’s head, as soon as he found he was not to be killed, b u t lied a« a prisoner. T h e i r object being accomplished, our men gathered up all the surviving horses, fifteen in number, and returned upon their trail, and re­ joined us at our^ camp in the afternoon of the same day. T h e y had rode a b o u t one hundred miles in pursuit and return, and all in thirty hours. T h e time, place, object, and number considered, this expedition-of Carson ancLGod- ney may be considered am o n g the boldest and most disinterested w h L h the annals of western adventure, so full of daring deeds can present. T w o men, in a savage wilderness, pursue day and night an unknown boay of Indians into tbe defiles of a f f u n k n o w n mountain— attack them on sight wiihout counting numbers, and defeat them Tn an instant— and for what ?— to punish the robbers of the desert, and avenge lhe w rongs of Mexicans they did not know. I repeat, it was Carson and Godney who did this— the for­ mer an American, born in Boonslick County. Missouri; and the latter a Frenchm a n , born in St. Louis, and both trained to western enterprise from early life.
