And thot haal willed and w. mutt pari.
Bat oh! though banlshsd from thy home
Thou canst not thrust from thy heart.
No- vainly wid. with all Iu storms
Between n rolls th. distaat Ma
Though many a mil. divide on forms
Thy soul shall still b. full of met
When th. glad daylight shall arts.
And wak. t. Ufa thy troubled breast;
Oh though shall miss th. laughing eyes
That hung snamor'd o'er thy rait;
When from tao midnight blu. and deep
Th. sad moon gleama o'er land and sea.
The night winds In their ruining soetp '
Shall bring the. beck tb. thought of mat
And thou shalt shrink belore my name
And algh t. hear lb. laya I aung;
And cure the Hps that dar. to blame
Her whom thin own reproach wrung.
Thy III. la charmed! a weary spell
Shall haunt thy spirit day by day;
And shadows Iu thy horn shall dwell
Of soenes foretsr passed away.
Tears thrilling yean shall slow gill by.
And find thee lonely Joyless still;
Aod forms more fair ahall charm thin aye
But hat. no power thy heart to fill.
Even while they pledge the. paaslon'a tow.
Th. sudden pang that none may aea
Shall darken on thin altered brow
Thou'lt answer them but think of me.
When languid sickness numbs each limb
Fancy ahall bring my stealing tread
And weary eyes with watching dim
To tl.lt thy forsaken bed.
Go rot. through every clime on earth
And dream thy falsehood sets thee free;
In Joy In pain In love or mirth
1 still will haunt thy memory.

31 r. x urookmortoa sometime since
favored us with a copy of the follow-
iugbill: la the House of Representatives Oc
tober 29 lbiv Head twice referred
to the Committee on tlio Pueifio
Kailroad and ordered to be printed.
April 27 1873 Committed to the
Committee ot the Whole House ou
the state of the Union and ordered
to be printed; "
To Survey the Auetin-Topolotampo Pacific route.
Be it enacted bv the Senate and
House of Representatives of fte United
States of America in Congress .assem-
bled. That the Secretary of War be
direoted to make an examination of
and report upon the most feasible
route tor postul and commercial pur-
poses from Austin Texas to the liio
Grande and to extend said examina
tioo and report (permission having
been obtained through the Deportment
ot State trom tne Government or JHexi
co) to tbe uay ot Topolovampo (lati
tude twenty-nve degrees thirty-two
minutes north.) on tne Uuli ot Call
fornia : and thut for the purposes of
Ruoh examination and report there is
hereby appropriated out of any mon
ey not otherwise appropriated tbe sum
of twenty thousand dollars or so much
thereof as may be necessary.
On the above bill Mr. Thrcckmor
ton from the Committee on tbe Pacific
Railroad submitted a report the most
of which we copy below. The bill and
comments'in the report will be read
with interest. Kd. Free Press.
During the first session of the Forty-
fourth Congress a bill directing the
Secretary of War to make a survey
and report of the most feasible route
from Austin Tex. to Topolovampo
Mexico was adopted by both com
mittees on the Pacific Railroad and
reported therefrom ; but by reason of
complications peculiar to that Con
cress no action was obtained in either
the Senate or Hodse.
The said route if found to be prac
ticable will give all the important
centers ot industry and population in
the United States and Canada east of
the Rocky Mountains the great lakes
and the Saint Lawrence Valley and
every port on the Atlantio coast of
this country a short convenient and
uninterrupted line of comniuoicaucn
with the l'acifia Ooean and will di
rectly promote the development of
commercial and Social intercourse be
tween the forty-five millions of pec pie
living on the AtlanUe Jslope of North
America and the nine million iahabit-
ante of Mexico apart froaa lie con
sideration it nay command as a link
ia one of the most economical routes
between Europe aod Asia. It is urged
in tba lafrest of the whole countrr.

viduals OTjrsnitatiooe. or sections so
far as has come to ths knowledge of
There has sever been ruLittei ass
official information of scientifio or com
mercial value relative to the section of
our continent in question although
fifty surveys were made by the War
Department between 1803 and 1868
for the purpose of reporting military
postal and oorumeroial highways from
the waters of the Mississippi to the
Paoifk rocludmg surveys along the
32d35tb 41st. 47th 48th and 49tb
parallels large sums of money and
much labor have been expended by
the Navy Department in effecting ex-
plorations for canal and railway routes
across tne isthmuses of Tehuantepeo
Nicaragua Panama and Darien. The
deep-sea soundings for the Atlantio
and Paeifio Ocean cables ; the surveys
of the Dead Sea of the South Paoifio
Islands of the harbors of Japan and
China of the Gulf of California of
TopolovaraDO Harbor of the Amason
River of the Polar Seas ic &c
have been and are being prosecuted
by our government for the purpose of
diffusing reliable information in the
interests of society science and com-
merce. The War Department also
commissioned John C. Fremont then
a civil engineer to traverse the oentral
plateau and Rocky Mountains and to
searoh for and report upon a wagon-
road through Mexican Territory un-
der which instructions tho said Fre
mont conducted three separate sur-
veys. The permission so cordially given by
the Mexican Government in 187G to
extend said explorations from the Rio
Grande across her domain to the waters
at Topolovampo was accorded in ans-
wer to a communication from the Sec
retary of State made at the suggestion
ot the President of the United States
The harbor of Topolovauipa has
been surveyed and reported three
timos by the United States Navy. It
is a mountain-locked harbor and has a
water surface of 54 square miles with
an anchorage area of 12" square miles
of from 3J to 15 fathoms and a depth
over its bar sumcient to carry tne
For fifteen years the United States
Government has not taken a step
either by treaty or by survey to en
courage our people to make their in'
dustries intor-dependent with thoss of
Mexico although it is abundantly on
on record tbat the latter oountry can
furnish us with all the tropical medi-
oines woods fruits &o. which we now
obtain under so many disadvantages
from Cuba and Brazil a trade which
amounts to $200000000 annually and
for which tho 9000000 citizens of
Mexico would receive iu exohange our
surplus articles of manufacture.
Jbor these among other reasons
your committee suggest the importance
of the proposed survey and reconi
mend that the bill No. 112 herewith
reported back be passed.
An Emway on IfBiabac by the
PhlloMoplier of Man fflarcoa.
People presume to live now in an
enlightened age; and at the same time
humbug rules the world. There is
humbug in all present forms of gov-
ernment beeiu.se all can be ridiculed.
For the same reason there is humbug
in all religions including Christianity
with the Bible for a text book with-
out a key to define it There is dis
crepancies in the exact scieoces.JMod-
ern laws of finance and eooiety are
humbugs because they favor the rich.
The legal fraternity ia a humbug be
cause mopey draws on. the scales of
justice aad by proper education of the
masses. lawyers could be dispensed
ith. Tbe medical faculty with its
materia sntJiea is as big a humbug as
the juggernaut car in the empire of
DaboLiy. The laws of commerce are
humbug. . because there is six limes
more people employed in trade thsa is
necessary to do tbe business. Archi-
tecture is a lumlair .because there is
six limes less people employed at it
than is Bcesary to do the work right.
There is hurabuc ia literature becaove
for every l.fXO rolsraes published for
the eoeoarenieot of humbug th're
is bat one ttsteco .written on truth.
There is humbug in sgrioulture in
Texas because farmers leave the ma-.
nure where it is a nuiianoe and let
their soil wash to the ocean to ob-
struct harbors and entrances of rivers.
Among other minor humbugs too nu- -merous
to mention here t the Looal i
Option law here in Sen Marcos is a
humbug perceivable-by deaf bliad or-
dumb persons and illiterate corsfieJd
I do not mean to ssy that all these .
hnmbugs ate wrong: because "what- .
ever is is right" The feudal laws of
Europe were appropriate at the .time .
ot their existenoe but they played Out.
Customs whioh are legal now may be .
criminal i five or ten years henoe :
aud vice versa. Taking the world's
history ss a guido philosophers have
sought in vain for the purpose of man's
existence on earth. Intellieonoe may
be introduced on earth for the purpose
in its first stages to display a drama
or eomedy in the universe for anaolH
to amuse : with the words "vanitui t
vomtlalis" or some other sucAuDsmo
on the playbill.
Arguments and the sharpoBt ridioulo .
cannot abolish humbug from the civi- .
lizfid World but a Won of astrpnomy
and politios oould establish a reform
by recognizing the following uoreutk- -ble
view of the world:
"The univorso is a piese of .divine -
workmanship the design and .masonry .
of a living temple fort human musolt -and
intelligence to complete under (ho '
auspioes of a higher Jaw."
The official recognition of jthisiaqt. :
would cause humbugs to disappear
without resistance or violence as dark- .
noss vanishes before the rising sun.
The above argumeuts are severe and
uncompromising; but it takes a loud-
er voice than the peals of thunder or v
Krupp's canoofl to call i nations to
consciousness. G. V.
The streets of almost any large..oi!y
at night present a spectacle more sad- .
dening more pitiful more fearful than
any picture to be found in Dante's In-
ferno. Beneath the gas lamv from
dark until long after midnight wander -
unoeasingly thousands of young girls.
Their eyes are fixed. They stalk like .
shadows. There is no merriment in
their gait; no joy no peace no happi-
ness in their look. However well j
dressed it is the same whiter!; sepul-.
oli re. For mile after mile these sad
specters hurry along. At eachtpide
street they carry off their victims.
Who are those desolate ones that fill
tho city with their ceaseless tramp? '
Do they come forth at night booause
they caro not for the society of their f
fathers or mothers or sisters? yAlas
no. These have no homes They sre
alone iu a great world too busy to no- .
tice them or their misfortunes. With-
out a knowledge of the world they are
driven iato the midst of its vices and i
forced to .earn a living by the only .
means. that is within their .power. ;
ThcyJtBOW oot the horrible abyss of
shame the amplitude of suffcrirg tho '.
depth of the. distress to. which-' that -first
step leads and so having begun
they are carried. on by the swift cur- -rent
of crime about them:. Do they
ever seek to escape? They turn blind-
ly for the means but on every hand i
they seem shut in by a high wall sepa.
rating thorn from the respectable world.
There is no recourse and so year after .
year Ihcy fall lower and. lower aod
their despair grows deeper until death .
takes them for his own. sod their poor -
bones are. laid away in the potters' '
