§etet[ted ^liuelUmiu UP IN THE CLOUDS. MY friend, your fancy files too far, The world of man lies ronnd our feet, Ilcre its unceasing coniliels are, And here its varying forces meet. Fray, curb the thoughts that vaguely rise Anonettf&a real and stubborn facts Give o'er wild flights to distant skies, And do some good by human acts. Utopian dreams are pleasant things, No donbt—but dreams are poor at best We live not by imaginings, Nor thrive oa vague aud vain unrest. We must behold with eyes of sense, Our feet must tread in actual ways, And ere we gain the recompense "Tis ours to number toilsome days. Grand theories of what might be, Prodigious scheme* for changing all Heaven order here can never free Mankind from Nature's bond and thrall. What '*, howe'er or whence it came, Is'Uiut which all must recognize What might be wears a winsome name, But brings no joy to tearful eyes.

Jmeskrtt ^iliauc^ Terms $9.00 a Year, $i.oo for Six Months. 8ATUBDAY. MARCH 14, 1874. SALUTATORY. The recent suspension of the A -pany VANCE, and transfer of its editor to a different field of labor, renders it neces sary for others to discharge the duties of the editorial chair. The present pro prietors of the ADVANCE (Miller, Hum iston&Co.) have opened negotiations with a gentleman in an eastern city, and we are warranted in saying that he will, in all probability, take charge of the office at an early day—not asan employee, but as one ofdy its proprietors. Being a practical prin ter as well as a competent editor, he will prove a valuable accession to the enterprise. There seems to be an opinion enter tained by many that the present pro prietors of the ADVANCE desire to con fine its publication exclusively to theGoods interests of the National Colony.— Now we are authorized to say that such is-not the fact, and a suspension of judgment is asked until this opinion is contradict...

Work and Worry* IT is an old opinion that the literary men and brain-workers generally have often inadequate notions in regard to the conditions of healthy work of the instru ment which they employ. Other men," saya one of Barton's favorite old authors, "look to their tools a painter will wash his pencils a smith will look to his hammer, anvil, forge a husbandman will mind his plowshare, aDd grind his hatchet if it be dull a falconer or hunts man will have special care of his hawks, horses and dogs a musician will string and unstring his lute only scholars neg lect-that instrument which they daily use, and by which they range over all the world." But there is an essential differ ence between the two classes of cases here contrasted, which constitutes some sort of apology for the brain-worker. A handicraftsman is able to observe at a glance the very first indications of his tools getting' the worse for wear but it is by no means so easy a matter to tell at what point the brain has do...

The Better Side of the Story To the Editor of the Brooklyn Eagle: ONE cannot take up a paper nowadays without being confronted, in glaring let ters, with a Divorce," or Matrimonial Quarrel," or "Wife Beaten," or what would seem to be a universal complaint, difficulties between married people. Then turn to the correspondence, and some husband complains of the extravagance of women, of the leniency of the law in giving women so many privileges of property denied to men, or some poor, subdued wife ventilates her opinion on the tyranny of men in general, or the fearful injustice of the law in regard to wives and their right in thei* own children. Perhaps some bachelor or ancient maiden utters a growl at theiet ters of matrimony, and declares how much better and wiser it is to remain single. The newspaper columns are mediums of complaints, grumbles and abuses but whoever represents to the public that large class—in fact, the majority—of contented married people, who trouble not themselve...

A Situation of Extreme Horror. I once," savs a celebrated writer, "read a most horrible story of some French travelers who attempted to ex plore the vaults ot the Egyptian pyra mids, which revives some of those terri fying obstructions we sometimes meet with in disturbed dreams. These per sons had already traversed an extensive labyrinth oi chambers and passages they were on their return, and had arrived at the most difficult part of it—a very long and winding passage, forming a commu nication between two chambers its open ing narrow and low. The ruggedness of the floor, sides and roof rendered their Sifflcultiesslow rogress and laborious, and these increased rapidly as they ad vanced. The torch with which they had entered became useless, from the impos sibility of holding it upright, as the pas sage diminished its height. Both its height and width, at length, however, be came so much contracted that the party were compelled to crawl on their bellies. Their wanderings in these inter...

Another Balloon Expedition. E failure of all North Pole ezpedi. tions to discover the secret ot the Arctic regions has stimulated the Aeronautic So ciety of Paris to attempt an Arctic balloon voyage. Extravagant as the notion may appear, it is not more extravagant than Prof. Wise's project of crossing the At lantic Ocean in a balloon. One advan tage of an aerial North Pole voyage is the temperature of the Arctic regions, which prevents the escape of gas from the bal loon to such a degree that it is supposed to be quite feasible to construct a balloon which will last a three months' voyage. Another advantage is the absence of dark ness in the Northern regions, if the bal loon leaves in the summer time the sun will illumine the heavens during the whole trip. Then, again, the permanency in the direction of the winds around the regions of the North Pole would be another point in favor of the trip to the North Pole over that across the Atlantic. The size of the proposed balloon is fixed ...

«f^vyi«tMw«ur'.4tMJ An Exciting Race—The Story of a Grave Robbery. IN a town of Northern New York a poor man went to bis grave by a disease of the brain, concerning which the local medical authorities differed widely and acrimoniously. In fact two particular phy sicians, who had long been professional rivals, so radically disagreed as to the ex act character of the case that, when he whose treatment prevailed could noVsave the patient, the other did not hesitate to allege that the sick man had been de stroyed by ignorant mismanagement. When a respectable practitioner casts such -an imputation upon a member of his own professional school, he should be pretty confident of his ability to prove it, and the accuser in the present instance was not unaware of his imperative obligation to substantiate his accusation. But how was that to be done? He had firmly main tained that the disease in question was caused by a tumor, and that the removal of the same by an operation would save the patie...
