v w& DAYS WlTHObl JS1GH1&. fe Dr. Baird, in Lis lecture at the conference room, gave some interesting facts. There is A nothing that strikes a stranger more forcibly, if lie visits Sweden at the season of the year -when the days are the longest,than the absence of night. Dr. B. had no conception of it he- t'fore his arrival. The sun in June goes down at Stockholm a little before ten o' clock. "-There is a great illumination all night, as the Btm passes round the earth towards the north pole, and the refraction of its rays is such that you can see to read at midnight. Dr. B. read a letter in theforebt, near Stockholm, at midnight, without artificial light. Thei e is a mountain at the head of the Gulf of Bothnia where, on the 1st of June", the sun does not go down at all. Travelers go there to see it. A steamboat goes up fiom Stockhelm for the ''purpose of carrying those who are curious to witness the phenomenon. It only occurs one night. The sun goes down to the horizon, jou ...

-.8 tho report of tho Committee, was as the to1 right of "Mr. Pease or Mr. Jones to occupy a seat in the Senate, from the eleventh District, nnder"the apportionment of the last Legislature. He had no doubt himself he presumed that no Senator doubted the right of Mr. Pease to hw seat, if the premises assumed by thecom- xnlttee were correct. If the apportionment of the last Legislature, was a legal and constitutional apportion ment, by which Brazoria and Galveston, formed the Eleventh Senatorial District, tho evidence was un- doubted that Mr. Pease had received a majority of the votes in those two counties. This however was not the main question. The petition of Mr. Pease seeks to displace Mr. Jones, who elaims a seat as a Senator from the"county of Galveston," which county he asserts is entitled to separate sectional representation under the constitution of this Stute. This is the grave ques- tion which theJSenate is called upon to decide before the country, and in-order that the que...

CovsTnRFETr'SPfzsTsfCoh Thomas Wm. Ward announces in the Austin Gazette, that Land Patents, frith his signature counter- feited, are in circulation. Tehjity Sugar. We were shown on Monday last three samples of beautiful sugar brought by Mr. R. Green from the plantation of Mr. Andrew Long on the Trinity near Liberty. This sugar is far superior to most of the imported sugar in the market. Mr. Greeu informs us that he saw a cane on this plantation that measured over eleven feet in length, and had twenty-five mature joint. Hefchas recently visited the sugar regions of Mississippi and Louisiana, and he considers that the valley of the lower Trinity far sur- passes the best sugar regions of those States. jje says, "the Trinity sugar planters can beat those of Mississippi two to one."

Mr. Uolinan, in his European Life and Manners, says that in England children even quite young are often called upon to Sty grace at the table; and that three days before he dined in a large and elegant party, where the lady of the house asked a blessing and return- ed thanks. He was a week at one house where the eldest daughter of a family, about twenty-two,- led in the family worship every morning, and constantly said grace at the table; and so in several other instances.

1 ington, and can hardly fail to awaken the indig- nation of the civilized -world. Ho has torn M. Bodisco, so long the Russian Envoy in Washington, from his family, and driv- en him, in his old age, into the life -long rigors of Siberian exile. The news, so astounding, came through a medium whch precludes all doubt. It seems that an edict of the Autocrat prohib- its his diplomatic agents from owning property of any kind in the countries to which they are accredited, and M. Bodisco has enriched himself in estates wholly American. He owned valua- ble real estate in Georgetown, and had become considerably interested inGovernment securities. His property in all was valued at 450,000. These facts became known to the Emperor last winter, through the agency of a spy: and he immediately proceeded, in an artful manner, to entrap M. Bodisco into his hands. He directed M. Bodisco to repair to St. Petersburg without any delay, as his counsel was required in a mat- ter of great importance, and h...

uimnfrl gSBmBK A AHMINIAi; IGNORANCE. v We 'find ths following in some of our Cal- ,' Tanistic exchanges: "A colpoittu- having sold a Confession o ITaith, to an individual not a member o the church, his Arininian neighbors called in and looked at it. Some of them pronounced it not genuine. It was not the one they ha-1 seen or, heard of. We can scarcely divine what good objec , W&9 intended by publishing such tufF as this Is it to be supposed that Arniinians object t Calvanism because they do not understand it or is there any mistake in leference to th opinion -which they entertain, that the undi luted element is contained in the "Confes ' Bion?" We can assure the parties concerne I that precisely the reverse is the fact. 13t this end may be answered by publishing th; " "Incident of Colportage"' the unsectaria.. character of the enterprise, so much dwel . upon by the Agents, to secure Arniinian con tribution, may be demonstrated thereby. - ' We suppose our friends will notice thi...

General Land-Office, ) Austin, August 28 th, 1S48. j John W. Harris, Hon. Attorney General: Dear Sir : Another question, of grave im- portance, presents itself. It is, as to the pro- priety of receiving and placing among the ar- chives of the General Land Office, certain docu- ments purporting to be land titles, issued by ho former authorities of Mexico. These are semetimes presented in the form of originals, sometimes as first copies, and sometimes copies of copies. The constitution and kiws seem to contem- plate, that the General Land- Office shall bo the repository of land titles ; but ic would seem that it could not have been intended, that every un- authenticatcd document which is presented should be received, without attempting to dis- tinguish, even, tbe genuine from the spuri- ous. The constitution of the Republic of Texas declaresjthat, "with a view to the simplification of the land system, and the protection of the people and Government from litigation and fraud, a General...

Fe. Some dissatisfaction is expressed by particular members, as to the details of the bill in the nnangement of the different coun- ties for the respective Senatorial and Repre- sentative districts. It would be next to, if not impossible, to reconcile all. A pretty gen- eral concurrence is manifested, and 1 think the report which the committee have agreed will be adopted with few and no material amendments. This question has been the most vexed one expected to come before the Legislature, and its speedy and amicable set- tlement augurs a greater degree of interest for the public welfare, a more industrial dis position on ilm part of members, than any" previous action of the Legislature, of which it has been the distinguishing and most com- mendable characteristic A written communication was received in the Senate to-day from the Governor, bring- ing to the notice and recommending to the favorable consideralion of the Legislature, a digest of J he laws of the Republic and State of TV...

From the Western Christian Advocate. MAN LIVES NOT FOR HIM- ' SELF ALONE. How true is this, and yet how few ssem willing to believe in its truth, or practice on it ! Man is pi one to think that he is his own that he lives for himself alone. How great the mistake ! "Man is not Jiis own , he is "bought with a price." Yes with a piice no less than the suffering and ci ucifixion of Jesus Christ. He lives that he may be use- ful, not only to himself, but also to those with whom he is surrounded. In his social rela- tions he must be alive to the happiness of otherselse bis own happiness will be limited. Between his own happiness and that of others, there is such an intimate connection that the one cannot exist indipjndent, of the other. Man must caie for the wants of others, and be willing to relieve thvir distiessss, else, as it regards the end for Avhich he was c-vatjd, be lives in vain ; for " tu do good to otlns.1' is a part of the object for which he was crea- ted.

? rV THE WEEPER AT THE SEPULCHRE. ir MARIA JANE JEWSBTRY. A sound in yonder glade, But not of fount or breeze: A sound-ufc not of the whispering made By the palm and olive trees; It is not..the minstrel's lute, Nor the swell of the night-hird'SEOng, Nor the city's hum, Vrhen all else is mute, By echo borne along. " "Tis a voice the Saviors own " Woman, why weepest thou?"' She turns - and her grief is forever flown, And the shade that dimmed her brow; He is there; her risen Lord, No more to know decline; m He is there, with peace in every word, The wept one still divine. ''My f ither s throne to share, As King, as God I go, Bat a brother's heart will bo with me there, For my, brethren left below!" The weeper is left in dust, 3 Her Lord is throned on high, But ours may be still that weepers trust, And ours that Lord's reply.
