IWfe with you now is ihidiig wiea'Ther;
Your beaming hearts pulsate together.
No sombre clouds above you flating.
Nor ugly phanton cheeks your doting.
Noseathiag glauce-the scion of sorrow
Nor galling words-the blossoms of
At break of day, with cloudless heaven,
The fancy claims a shining leaven;
But clouds remote, by tempests driven,
Alas! anon, our hopes have riven.
Thus wedding days-those sweet liba.
Are often gates to stern rinations.
The lovely bride may prove a vixen,

Turn from his wife to hellish revel;
Despise her love, her sacred plightings,
And fume her with infernal blighhngs.
But this is Hymen's &Mshld vision;
For yes we hold adverse decision.
No vixen growl, nor hellish laving,
Shall effervesce in your behaving.
Now= guard yourselves against forgetting
The ghastly forms for aye besetting.
Our life's a course of undulation
And universal relsbateon.
No may berths upon this ocean
Each son 4f man must bear his portion;
Nor fairy heights are we aseeading.
While others to the oars are bending.
Wrestle and pray for God's encomium;
Despise the praise of pandemonium;

the investigation set afoot by the
Coaittee of Wausa sn Means at

tional crimes of the day. Samples
fremn the difereat refneries in New
York have been analysed, and in
every instance they have been found
to contain ea arises-gluconaind
other adulterations, all of them of a
poisonous nature. The New York
lhlirnne publishes a tabte of forty
five analyses of samples from difer
ent refineries, sorb do which show
as much as 6 per cent of water and
15 per cent of impurities. These
imps ritideaessist in lb. main of
glucose, a substance made from
starch, and even from rags, and
muriate of tin, or tin dissolved ia
muriatic asid. Thq glaeooss ieused

tin poison to improve the color.
Syrups are also. saul eited with
these and other substances even
more hurtful to the health. One
specimen showed a precipitate that
contained muriate of tin and cop
per. Another sample of sugar-house
syrup, from one of the largest re
fineries, showed 70 per cent of glu
cose, and but 80 per cent. of sugar
syrup. Still another sample had
been treated wit)1 aiilphnretted

cents a pound, and is used in adul
