Thomas Francis Meagher thus epeaks of the debasing influences of gold, in his elegant lecture upon Australia. As a feverish desire to grow rich is our principal nathional charcctcris tie he could hare said nothing mora appropri ate to his American hearers. "Gold, which has caused many n. l.-rain to ache, has blistered many a hand, broken many u noble heart, Las wounded manv a soaring .soul, and clinging to it' has brought'it to the dust; gold, which has lxvjght the integrity of ti e statesman, and led hiswisdom captive; gold, for which in the gay saloons of fashion, many a fair and I'.oble girl has plighted the vow which has consigned her life to bitterness, and locked up tin radicntneck the snake that swells her veins with venom; gold, which has stolen into the councils of the ttrugling nation, has bred dis sension among her chiefs, ha3 broken the seal of her sacred secret?, hai forced the gates of strongest citadels, has bought the evidences which harried her nposlols to the scaff...

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 1853 THE STREAM OP DEATIL . There 'is a stream whose narrow tide The known and unknown worlds divide Where all must go; Its waveless waters, dark and deep, 'Mid sullen silence downward sweep, With moanless flow. I saw where, at that dreary flood, A smiling infant pratling stood, "Whose hour had come : Untaught of ill, it neared the tide. Bunk as to cradled rest, and died Like going home. Followed with languid eye, anon, A youth diseased, and pale, and wan; And there alone, ' He gazed upon the leaden stream, And feared to plunge I hear! a scream, And he was gone. And then a form in manhood's strength, Came bustling on, till there, at length, He saw life's bound, ne shrunk, and raised the bitter prayer Too late! his shriek of wild despair, The waters drowned. Next stood npon that eurgeless shore A being bowed with many a score Of toilsome years. Earth-bound and sad he left the bank, Back turned his damning eye and sank Ah, full of fears. How Liltir must thy wate...

Some interesting experiments have been lately Biade with these different substances, which af afford yaluable results. The Journal of Agri culture furnishes a statement of trials made with potatoes covered with six inches of salt c hay; with slacked lime in the hill and salt over it; with lime only, and that on the surface; with a shovel full of tan in the hill; with a shovel full f marsh mud; and with a shovel full of cattle manure. The sa!t hay, slacked lime and salt, manure, and mud, were all attended with equal results; the lime oa the surface, and lime on. the hill, afforded one-sixteenth more, while the tan under the seed yielded one-6fth more, and tan on the seed one-eighth more the latter being larger, smoother, and better than the others. To what cause is the favorable influence of the tan to be ascribed? Some, doubtless, would re fer it to its chemical composition but the...

A great and increasing interest is now felt by the citizens of Charleston, Savannah and A u gnsta, and also by the southern connecting rail road Companies, and by the people living upon the line, in the projected road from Knoxville to Danville, Kentucky. The construction of this places our road upon another most impor tant thoroughfare, to-wit: from Kentucky and the Ohio to the south Atlantic seaboard, and the interior of Georgia, Alabama, and South Carolina. The initiatory steps have been taken for the formation of a Company, and a survey it to be forthwith commenced. The length of this road will not exceed 120 miles, and it is probable the cost will fall within $2,000,000. It Is tho't that the public and private subscriptions of the towns and counties along the line will go far toward raising this sum, and that the deficit will be made up by Augusta, Charleston and Savannah, and the Georgia and South Carolina...

o4 i n. THE DEAD. Tlie dead alone are great! While heavenly plants abide on earth, The soil Is one of dew-less dearth. But when they die, a morning shower Comes down and makestheir memories flower, With odors sweet though late. The dead alone are fair! While they are with us, strange lines play Before our eyes, and chase away God's light; but let them pale and die, And swell the tores of memory There is no envy there. The dead alone are dear! While they are here, long shadows fall From our own forms, and darken all; But when they leave us, all the shade Is round our own 6ad footsteps made, And they are bright and clear. The dead alone are blest ! While they are here, clouds mar the day, And bitter snow-falls nip their May; But when the tempest-time is done, The light and heart of Heaven's own sun Broods on their land of rest. AGRICULTURAL.
