kv THE ROSE IN THE BOOK. Lo! pressed here in God's sacred book. Behold the fragments of a flow'r That once beside Judcan brook Lived out its evanescent hour. 2io longer in the dews of night It glitters like a diadem; Xo more the holy morning light Falls on the rose of Bethlehem. The faded leaves recall an age Beloved to-day a.thousand-fold, And I have pressed it on the page That breathes the wonder-tale of old. "Upon it, like a sunbeam, lies A benediction all Divine, .And from its crushed heart seem to riso The odors sweet of Palestine. Methinks I hear the dulcet flow Of Kedron thro' its restful glade; And where my rose smiled, long ago, The angel-guarded Saviour play'd. There fell not o'er his youthful bliss The shadow of the soon-to-be: No thoughts of Calvary were his, No vision cf Gethsemanc. 'Thus in the Bible I have kept The rose that seldom sees the sun; It grew near where the Master wept, And bloomed where Kedron's waters run. And as the old vainglorious Kings Held dear the c...

It is difficult in theso days of rapid ocean travel, says George P. Hasbrouck in Drake's Magazino, to realize that in tho beginning of the century, people were wondering over a strango new thing in navigation, a boat moved by steam. That tho application of steam to boats as a motive power had been considered by many minds as a matter certain of accomplishment long before it becamo an actual fact, admits of no doubt, and just as tho names of Treye thick, Hackworth and Stephenson must be bracketed togothcr in connection with tho locomotive, so must those of Fitch, Stovens, Fulton and others be associated with tho invention of the steamboat. That tho namo of John Fitch stands preeminent at tho head of the list, there zan bo no question, for whilo it must bo admitted that numerous models were made of steamboats, accompanied by illus...

4fc, ENCOURAGING PROSPECT. legitimate Business Continues to Expand-' A Confident Tone. New Yomc, June 14. IL G. Dun & Co. say: Speculation has been neither large in volume nor enthusiastic in tone during the past iveek, but the legiti mate business of the country continues unprecedented in volume for the season and highly encouraging in prospects. There has been quite a decline in ex ports from New York for two weeks past, the value having been 14 per cent, below that of the same weeks last year, while in imports here a mod erate increase continues last week 5 per cent. 15ut the flow of cur rency to this center supplies demands and makes the market easy. Interior cities report rather more demand for money and at Boston rates are rising, at Chicago and St. Louis steady, and at Philadelphia dull, not much commercial paper offering, but at most points the demand is fair, with a sufficient supply.
