The long and desperate struggle which bad for years been carried on between the Imperial Government of Brazil and the re voted southern pro^pces was draw ing to a closo ; and I, who for nearly fire years had boen almost constantly on the wing, or, what amounted to about the same thing, on horseback, in the patri otic service, was on my way to join my little Brazilian wife to whom I had bc<-n united some five months previously, and from whose side I had been summoned within three hours after our marriaire to lead my command against a body of Don Pedro Seguado's Landeros, who were committing depredations in ihe neighbor hood. I had been severely wounded in the side and shoulder, and what with the ex posure in our wild, uncomfortable camp, the entire lack of proper medical and surgical skill, and the slow fever which had for three weeks been consuming me, my iron constitution had given awav at last, and I was as near dead as a man could well be and maintain his seat in his saddle. My home, or rather that of my wife, was on the banks of the beautiful Uru guay, on the extreme western limits of the Brazilian Empire, and my way thither led across the serried peaks and through the wiid passes of the Southern Brazilian Andes, a region swarming wiih every species of wild Leasts, fierce savages, murderous banditti, who killed for men pastime, and bands of Imperial troops, more savage than brutos, Indiarn, or robbers. Pleasant, very; don't ycu think it was ? for an invalid scarce able to keep hi3 scat in the saddle, and accompanied by only two n-.gro slaves possessing but little more sense or reason than the horses they guided. Seven long, tedious days went by, an?J T had struggled on thus far without com ing in contact with the wild beasts, sav ages, robbers, or Imperial fo'ditrs, to within fifteen leagues of my journeyY end ; when my overtasked energies could bear me up no longer, and dispatching the most intelligent of my servants to apprise my wife and family of my situa tion, I lay down under the shelter of a shelving rock in one of the most rugged, desolate mountain passes I had ever seen, but with slight hopes of surviving tili aid should arrive from my friends on the Uruguay. Ic was near neon when the negro de parted on his mission, and, as I had pro mised him freedom and ten ounocs in gold if he reached my wife's home thai night. 1 knew he would not lose a mo ment, and I might expcct relief before night next day, provided I lived till that time, which did not seem very probable, ts within two hour3 I was half delirous. The hot bieod, dm en to the extremities by the raging f.ver, seemed like leaping l'quid currents of fire; while my very vitals appeared to scorch and to crisp with the subtle heat, and my whole frame wa? racWed with the most exqu site torture. Twenty times during the afternoon I I had sent the remaining slave to the , stream which wound aiong tho bottom ol the ravine for water to slake my burning thirst. The sun was, perhaps, an hour above the horizon, when I was suddenly sur rounded by a baud of some tM euty fero cious-looking Lri j-iud", who were traver sing the mountain pass to the westward in pursuit of a iraiu of mules loaded witl merchandize thai had preceded i J?m bui the day previous. I had LOthiug about me to tempt th? robbers' cupidity. As they were rathei partial to the revolutionary party, whose uniform I wore, they ottbrud me no vio lence, and one of them even brought m< a gourd of water, for my siave had llec at the approach of the brigands, and I never saw him afterward. But all my e-utreaties, prayers am promises of reward were unheeded c uOt prevail on ihem to remain will imT'till should arrive. The1 were intent oS'*")*" th.e clP;'"e a'; plunder of the ac<! 53 th7 dc parted, leaving me there dying, in that wild, desolate mJMUi'a pass. My scanty supply of water was soot exhausted, and I was raving mad witl intolerable thirst. In my frerzy I ton the bandages from my half-closed wounds beat my head against the rocky frag incnts that formed my be<I; end. oh, hov II prayed for death ! I There I lay all that long, horrid n\gn till it was daylight again; and then sank into a death-like torpor, from wliic! I was aroused by a heavy weight press ing on my che6t, and my first glance, a I opened my eyes, fell upon the wc:i-re Ti mbered features of tlie most de&dlj emzDjr I had on earth?Col.

Oneo I turned my head toward the west to catch a glimpse of the setting sun, and the next moment I was insensi ble. It was not loog that I remained thus; for I was aroused again by the quick rattle of pistol shots, the clash of steel, the wild baUle shouts, and dying screams of strong men in their last nor* rid death agony. All iround me I beheld a vision of gal lant men led by a slight, wirlish fi/ure in the light blue frock, gold-embroidered vest and plumed cap 0f the Southern (mumJioji who, mounted upon a superb torse, black as night, sped here and there, shouting our battle-cry of ?

AWCIZKT AND MODERN HOBS8 The Romans walked on mosaic floors ? but they were hard and cold. The pall ane halls of Q.icen Flinbrth were strewn with straw and rushes; but we, of this western world, walk over landscapes, designed by the genius of Claude Lo am-?thus bringing to our v?,ry feet, in ."e luxurious tread of the parlor, all the mages of l>eauty which once adorned the wails of Italian pa!ace?, and which are now sought for with eagerness, and looked upon with veneration. The progress of art end taste is e'eo tnc in our age, and Inventions for mul tiplying whatever exalts or embellishes ci\:liz?d life, outstrip the widest imigi nation. We were forcibly stauck with this thought the other day, as we glanced rapi lij through a great carpet estab Iishment. There is always much that is suggestive and striking in a superb collection of rich fabrics gathered from every part of the world, and thrown opeu to the eye ol taste on our fashionable Bou.evard ; and every season brings its new attraction into Broadway. But at no former period have we witnessed more marked progress in any department, than xc find this spring in the new styles of arpets, and every ?p?cies of covering with which wc clothe the halls and floors of our dwellings. There we notice a .uxurious Mosaic rug, which seems an rxact counterpart of one of the fiaest pictures of the old masters. From ? short distance the tky is as blue?the clouds as golden?the water as limpid ? tile tree-shadows fall as mirror-like upon its g assy bosom?the herds are as lazily wandering in the meadows?the moun tains rise as dark at the base, as purple up the sides, and as golden en the topi, as ever the finest imagination pictured. At the iarther end of the stately hall al>ove referred to. (which, for com tnercet sake, we must call a sales room.) is suspended something entirely new iu the world of art?an American invention. It is the first sample seen in the world of the Medallion Ingrain Carpet. It id composed of five breadths, which unite in a gorgeous and splendid design?? unique, f.esh, striking, beautiful, aid suggestive of imag-js of beauty ; and vet khis work of art which is worth a thou sand times more than all the meaning less scrolls and flowers, and confusion of colors, hurled together to make up car* pets of common design, cost scarcely a groat more than one of thoce old-f^sh ioned things we have grown so tired of long years ago. Why shall we not havo things that are beautiful iu our dwellings, when the genius ol art and the sturdy am of commerce bring them to our doors ? This is an cge of luxury and of pea?e 10 "s on this untroubled side of the eai?. * It may well be: for the olive is growing ?*n 0ur New World, while the Haines of war Z'e Jighted in the Old. And here is a nation ?f working meu. walking on a continent of gold. Once all the beautiful oljects, images and associa tions of art were confined to the rich and ncble. Democracy has revolutionized thewor'i. It has lifted the veil, and cpencd a^. ?cr!hl/ paradise to the long toiiing. and ,e7?r-Iargo?a,z million. The home cf every active, intelligent, cpright American, may now be brightece-d by those 'usuries which, by the magic work ings cf modern machinery, have been Vithin tfc? common reach. To the ener gy, boldne&9 and taste of such, our city and country are* indebted for much of the luxury and crguflvts of American hemtij, Home Journal. / K .AkTIDCTB TO TilK l\-*ATO-R(>f.? Professor Boll man. of the Russ>n Agri cultural Institute, has published a pamph let on the potato-rot, and he announces to the woild that mere drying, if ex>n dactc-d at a sufficiently high temperature a:?d continued long enough, is a complete antidote to the disease This result was !>*<.?* tamed by repeated experience con ducted for a series of years. The tew pera'.ure required to produce the desired result is not very clearly made rut. Mr. tollman's room, in which his first pota toes were dri.-d. was heated to about 72 degrees, and much higher. By way of d i experiment he placed others in the cham d bcr of tKe stove itself, where the thermo a meter stood at 136 degrees, and more.? d! lie also ascertained thut the vitality of o'the potato is not affected even if the i rind is charred.
