The Boston Pos says : Since the commence ment of the Sontag operas, an enthusiastic friend of ours and his wife have become so car ried away with the furor awakened by attending two nights at the opera, that it is the hardest thing in the world for them to restrain their dis position to sing everything the more so be cause they are both proficients in music. The other morning, while ordering hii dinner, the butcher a sedate man was surprised to hear our friend shout out, with most emphatic enun ciation: " What will vou take For that 'ere steak V The butcher winked at his partner, and1 an swered, with an air of composure, "a shillPn, sir;" but it was evident our friend was down in tho day-book of his estimation as a lunatic.

COMMENCEMENT OF THE SI1I1 CA NAL. About 10 o'clock of Monday morning last, the steamboat Albany made her appearance, and came up the river with all her colors flying, and as hhe ncared the dock the piles of wheel-bar. rows and crowds of men, to bo seen on her decks, made it evident that at last our hopes were to bo realized in the arrival of a strong force of canal workmen. Mr. Harvey, the Con tractors' Agent, Cant. Canfield and Col. Glenn Were passengers, accompanied by about 100 men. We learn that a great crowd assembled on tho docks at Detroit to witness their depart ure, and the seeno was enlivened by tho pres ence of a band of music. The citizens of De troit could well aflbrd to make some demonstra tions of satisfaction, as no work of its cost and size was ever undertaken which will add to tho growth and prosperity of the City of tho Straits like the Saut Ste.

u , world. But alas! how vain are earthly hopes. How transient earthly bliss, the morning cloud the evening flower the vnpor that flies before the morning sun, bespeak the failing character of earthly joy. Behold in her case, while her star is steadily ri sing to its zenith, in an hour It is obscured In death. The subject of this brief notice had been blessed with a pious mother's early instruction and prayers, and during the past winter has often been strongly impressed with the importance of a "personal preparation of heart to meet God. Often has she resolved to attend to the subject, but like too many, still delayed, thinking there was time enough yet. But the fatal hour drew near that was to try her, nd teach a group of sorrowing friends and rela tives, the importance of &c?aready.To'her Pas tor who saw her but a few hours before her exit, she said with much earnestness, " I ought to have attended to these things before when I was well."

AUSTRALIA AS SEEN BY A CALIFOR-' ni an. ..: The following letter was written under date of Jan. 10, 1853 from the "Eureka Diggings," Australia, by Mr. W. II. Cooper, late City Sur veyor of Sonora to a friend in the latter place, by whom it was furnished to the Sonora Her ald. Being written by an intelligent and observ ing rrian,.and withal a practical miner, it is enti tled to full consideration. ... "This country is low and flat; ami is a great deal worse watered than California. What wa ter there is, ia nearly all brackish. Sometimes it is tinctured with 6ulphur and iron, but most ly salt. The flics are an intolerable nuisance; there is no end to them in the mines. Many persons have almost lost their sight, on account of their darting into their eyes. I preserve my eyes and faco by continually wearing a veil.

AN UNCHANGING NATIONAL POLICY. All who have read lho Arabian Nights, will remember the adventure of the man who climb ed the mount for the singing birds and golden waters As he proceeds, regardless of peril, and resolved to succeed, even at the sacrifice of life itself, he is threatened by a thousand sten torian voices, threatening resistance and death, unless he look back, and at the same time he is perplexed by unseen hands opposing his ad vance. But he does not blench he does not pause. With high constancy and fortitude he makes good his way, and so escapes the fate of those who preceded him, and who were turned into stones. This fairy tajo reminds us of the lesson taught in the daily experience of every man. If wo suffer mere clamor and impalpable visionary resistance to impede our progress in great designs, and look back, and turn back up on our path, our hesitation ends in making our. selves obstacles to the advance of others. All those who know the character of Frank, lin Pie...

JL R. R. The brain is the centre of the nervous system. From it arises 13 pairs of nerves, also the spinal marrow, from which arise 31 pairs of nerves. It Is by the nerves that we experience our sense of see ing, feeling, hearing, &c. Whenever we feel pain the nerves are likewise sensitive to the cause, pain prostrates the nerves, it irritates and inflames the muscles, ligaments, cartilages, &c. It enlarges the joints, and makes the bones brittle and soft. Diarrhoea, Dyspepsia, Cholera Morbus, &c, act more upon the stomach and Intestines. Radway's Ready Relief will stop the most distressing pains of all bowel complaints In a few minutes and ini mediately check the most painful discharges.
