Oh youth ! 'twere well lor thee If life's false stream
Would aways Soar as smooth. But ah !
Aa greatest danger oft is hidden deep
By fancy's van of sweet security.

Before tia ruffled by tbe winter storms.
" For once again the scene is changed, and now
A mbrhry river, carrying all before.
Bashes and roars through many a deep-cut gorge
Aad steep defile, while ragged rocks tuwer high
Aad wafl the stream of life on every skie.
Along the bank Bes many a shattered tree.
Whose branches once their giant arms outstretched.
Tin lae wild Mast swept by, aad at a stroke
Bowed their proud heads, and laid than In the dust.
From ridge to rlJge, dark threatening clouds extend,
frpreadiag o'er aU a canopy of dread,
- While arnding forth their coptoos floods which flow
lata the stream, and urge with maddening haste
Its speed toward- the sea, which lies beyond.
Ia tLe dim vista of tbe future seen.
A Iiulc bark drires swift bet; re tbe gale.
Dashing the spray Croat off her dripping prow,
" Aad trembling to her keel, as if alive
And conac ooa of the dangers th rouging round ;
While with clasp'd hands, aad looks of mute despair.
Within the sklfl the yooth, to manhood grown.
How trembling stands ; the rspids' deafening roar m
Strikes terrvr to his axil and pales bis cheek ;
The tiller wrenched away, the tittle bark
Caeheeksd, speeds wildly cc her fatal course t
While fiends oa lowering wing are hovering near
Intemperance, offering him the soothing cup.
And Suicide, the dagr in her hand (
Despair affrights him, with her visage grim.
He heeds them not, his bearenly guide is near,
Aad though aasera, that angel strengthens him ;
And as he nea-s the roaring cataract,
He breathes to Tleaven a wild, an earnest prayer.
Then disappears amid tbe foam below.
And now the last, tad scene, presents Itself,
Sad seen, f any. yet kmffift of them all
As darkest night gives sweetest sleep to man,
o life's tired m Tiger, wearied at the oar,
lies down amid tbe gloom and seeks repose.
The stream baa widened as it Beared the sea,
e Till now. no land la m oa either side.
But vast expanse of waters, darka night.
While silence reigns supreme silence so dread,
Aad darkness so profound, a whispered word
Wsuld seem a thanderbolt, and deepest Bight
WouU seem as if it were the fairest day.
A ahattered bark moves slowly down tbe stream ;
The waters at her prow seem scarce to part.
Bo quiet is the tide oa which the floats i
Dark clouds, the like of which bare never yet
O'crspread life's sky, hang heary all around.
Aad Time, afraid to enter Death's domains.
Baa taken wing and sought a sunnier clime.
Old Age sits helpless in the battend bark,
Aad calmly waita for hia expected guide ;
Far though he satts upon aa unknown aea.
With Darkness, and her sister, Solitude
Companions feared and dreaded most by all
. Vet nought he fears, aa angel's pledge, he knows.
Is always sure, will shortly be redeemed.
Bat now tbe trying moment has srrived.
The broken bark lets in the wares of death
Ob baste thee, angel, haste ! I need thee now.
A mjsoent's ps'sse, and be Is by his side
Hail, happy voyager, bail ! I coate to bear
Thee, worn and wearied, to tbe land of rest."
AB radiant thin the old man's face with Joy,
So beaoteous to behold, one scarce can tell
Which Is axat fair, the pilgrim or his guide t
One band be lays in peace serosa bis breast.

BT AS BTE-WITNESS.
We take great pleasure in laying beforo
our readers the following graphic sketch of
the great naval battle between the Monitor
and Merrimac. It has nerer before been
published, having been written by an eye
witness, and communicated in a letter to a
kind friend, who has furnished it at our
solicitation. It was not intended for publica
tion. We are confident our readers will
peruse this letter with much interest. It is
an event of the civil war in America, which
seems destined to revolutionize ail the navies
of tbe world place all the nations of earth
upon a common level. All must now begin
to build anew their navies. As it has been
forcibly remarked, "The Monitor, in one
day, battered down the navies of the globe."
They Jay at the mercy of her guns. This
shows the conquering power of a new idea.
It is, after all, true, tbat mind rules the world.
An idea of Ericsson the native of Sweden,
and the adopted son of America now " rules
the sea," and is "Mistress of the Ocean":
Camp Under Xevrpart 'ewa
I etippoMe you have heard of the naval engage
ment, off thia .lacv, bctwi-r-n our men-ol-wur
and tbe iron-clad (Steamer yUrriutac, but as some
of the accounts in the papers were nut exactly us
it happened, I will just give you an eye-witnees-doacription
Ic cuinmancod about 1 o'clock on Saturday,
the Fth March. I had just sat down to wrice
when the loug roll beat, and the men all rushed
to arms. I went down to my gun on the battery
to see che cause of the alarm. I did not have to
look long, fur down the river, towards Norfolk,
I saw thre rebel gun-boats coming up; in ad
vance oi these was something that looked like a
roof of a house, with a rhimncy in the center.
We all knew in an instant what it woe, ana the
cry " the Mtrrimac is coming" passed through
the whole camp. A very formidable appearance
she presented to us, and we knew we had got
some fighting to do to get rid of her.
As soon as she got within range of the guns of
the frigate Congress, that frigate opened on her,
as well as the battery here; but the Slerrimac took
no notice of the shot, although they were falling
like hail, and kept steadily on till abreast of the
Congress, when she opened her ports and poured
a broadside into her, with tenible effect. The
Congress then returned the broadside directly
down on the Mcrrimac, but with still no visible
effect, and the nhot only rattled down like so
many marbles. The Merrimac then kept on for
tbe Cumberland, which lay a short distance from
the Congress; it was now a perfect thunder of
cannon, for the Congress, Cumberland, and our
battery, were raining solid shot on the Mtrrimac
till she kept on for the Cumttcrland, running
presently into her starboard bow, and at the
same time firing a broadside into her, which
mode an awful slaughter. One ball from the
Merrimac killed sixteen men at one gun. The
Cumberland immediately returned a broadside of
120-lb. solid shot, the Merrimac being close to
the muzzles of the guns ; it only had the effect of
dismounting the only gun they had in sight, and
cutting away two of her flag-staffs. The Cum
berland now began to settle slowly, but still kept
filng. The commander of the Merrimac now
asked the commander of the Cumberland if he
would surrender. 44 So, never," said that gal
lant commander, but still kept on firing. As she
began to go down faster, the commander was
again asked if he was ready to surrender. 44 No,"
said be, 44 1 will down with my colors flying'
and so he did.
Until the water was knee-deep on the gun-deck,
tbe Cumberland kept up her firing, and finally
sunk, carrjing over a hundred brave and loyal
men to a watery grave. It was a terrible sight
to us to see this noble vessel disappearing from
oar sight; not a sound was heard on shore as
she n.ade her final plunge in the river she had so
faithfully guarded even the cannon ceased their
thunder for a few minutes, and the 44 stillness of
death was here."
Just before the poor Cumberland went down,
the Congress slipped her cables and ran ashore
on the point about half a mile below here.
Both of our vessels being now out of the way,
three more gun-boats came down the river from
Tbe Merrimac next commenced to shell our
camp, but being so near, she did not do much
harm, her shot passing over us. She then ran
down to where the Congress was ashore, and was
joined by the other six relel gun-boats. The
Congress fired a few shots in return, and then
hoisting the white flag, surrendered.
One of the gun-boats came up to take the crew
prisoners, but were kept off by the boys on ehoie,
who fired with their rifk-s so the Kebels only
succeeded in taking a very few.
The Merrimac, and all the gun-boafj, com
menced shelling the camp, the shot and chell
whistling over us and crashing among the trees
of tbe fret, and occasionally Binashing our tents
and exploding near us ; but the night soon awne
on, the firing ceased, and the boats ran up to
Norfolk to wait till morning, when they intended
to return, capture the Minnesota and other ves
sels of war, shell us out, and land a force to hold
this post. They would have done it too if Erics
son's floating battery, the Monitor, had not
arrived during the night.
As soon as it was dark, the flames broke
through the deck of the Congress (she had been
on fire below some time,) and mounted tbe masts
and rigging of the dimmed frigate, and she was
soon enveloped in flames from stem to stern,
which cast a lurid glare over the water and on
the camp. She lay bnadside to the camp.
Aboot 8 1. M. the fire began to affect the guns,
which were loaded. It was a fearful, yet grand,
sight to see that noble vessel blazing like a huge
pyramid, to bear the booming of the bursting
guns and have the balls whizzing over our heads,
fired by no mortal hand. One of the shot struck
a schooner and sunk her near to our wharf. We
went to sleep in the midst of this sublime scene,
with the shot srill flying over us. At 1 o'clock,
every man in camp was startled by the explosion
of the magazine; it shook the ground like an
earthquake ; the whole firmament was filled by
the burning splinters ana rparks of fire.
Sunday, the 9th, was as beautiful a day as ever
dawned on this troubled Union. We were up at
daylight, to see the re-commencement of the fight.
At 8 o'clock, the Merrimac, Patrick Henry and
Yorltotcn, came dawn from Norfolk to engage
and take the Minnesota, which lay aground off
here; but when the Merrimac got within three
miles, tbe Monitor came out irom behind her
and bore directly for the Merrimac the other
two rebel boats ran off. The Itebels were very
much surprised to see the Monitor; they neither
knew where it came from, or what it was. The
Rebels fired the first shot, and thus opened the
engagement. The Monitor engaged the Mcrrimr.c,
and it was a novel sight to see these two iron
clad steamers firing upon each other without
serious damage to either, and all this time not a
man could be seen on cither vessel. After five
hours firing, the Monitor drove off the Merrimac,
with some considerable damage. While they
were fighting on the river, the long roll beat in
the camp, for the Rebels had come down by land
to within three miles of us. They were sent to
cut us off in our retreat when the Mtrrimac
should have driven us ont. It was a well con
trived plan, and came very near being successful.
Had the Monitor been delayed a few hours, we
should not now be at Newport News.

A Poetical Diplomat.
It is not often that the votary of the Muses
participates in the conflicts of statesmen and
the correspondence of diplomatists. His
Majesty, in his address at the opening of
Parliament, announced that His Excellency
Sir Job:i Bownng had been appointed Min
ister Plenipotentiary from the Hawaiian
Court to those of Europe. Unless we are
much mistaken, this distinguished personage
is the author of the oft-sung hymn, com
44 Watchman ! tell us of the night,
What its signs and promise are ?" &c, &c.
There is scarcely any hymn more frequently
sung in the various Christian assemblies of
America, and we presume the same is true
of England. It is found in every collection
of church pslamody. It must have been
written more than thirty years ago. While
Mr. Bowring was British Minister to China,
he frequently translated specimens of Chinese
poetry. He also published a work upon
Siam, and another work upon Coins. He
has also the reputation of being a profound
linguist, and familiarly acquainted with most
of the languages of modern Europe. He
certainly cannot be less than 41 three score
and ten." Rarely is such a variety of talents
combined in the same individual, as that of
poet, linguist, diplomatist, political econo
mist and traveler. We cannot learn exactly
what treaty-stipulaliors he is desirous of
securing in behalf of the Hawaiian kingdom,
but hope he may be successful. We venture
however to assert, that when Sir John
Bowring's name as Diplomatist is forgotten,
that of the author cf
44 Watchman ! tell us of the nisht,"
will be remembered, and handed down to
millennial days by the harmonious choirs of
the church universal. Friend
