Tlic Blind Sjy.
An editor from whose selections we tnke the fol
lowing lines, has' beaatifully said, that, forliimself,
he could not see to read them through :
It was a blessed summer's day,
The flowers bloomed, the air was mild,
The little birds poured forth their l.iy,
And everything in nature smiled.
In pleasant thought I wandered on
Beneath the deep woods' simple sha.le,
Till suddenly I came upon
Two children who had thither etmyed.
Just at an aged beec'j tree's foot,
A tittle boy and girl reclined;
His hand in tier's he gently put.
And then I saw the boy was blind.
The children knew nut I was near;
A tree concealed me from their view ;
.But all they said I well could hea;
And I could see all they might do.
" Dear Mary !" said the poor blind boy,
''That little bird sings very long,
Say, do you see him in his joy,
And is he pretty as his song"
"Yes, Edward, yes," replied the maid,
" I see the bird on yonder tree
The poor boy sighed and gent'y said,
'Sister,'I wish that I could see.'.'
" The flowers, you say, are very fair,
And brigiit green leaves are on the trees.
And pretty birds are singing there
How beautiful for one who sees !"
"Yet I the fragrant flowers can smell,
And I can feel the green leaf's shade,
And I can hear the notes that sweil
From those dear birds that G od has made.
" So, sister, God to me is kind.
Though sight, alas ! He has not given ; .
Put tell me, are there any blind,
Among the children up in Heaven !"
" No, dearest Edward, there all see,
But why ask me a thing so odd !"
"Oh, Mary, He's so good to me,
I thought I'd like to look at God !" "
Ere long, disease his hand had laid
On that dear boy so meek and mild ;
His widowed mother wept and prayed
That God would spare her sight less child;
He felt her warm tears on his face,
And said, Oh, never weep for me
I'm going to a bright, bright place.
Where, Mary says, I God shall see.
And you'll come there, dear Mary, too ;
But, mother, dear, w hen you come there,
Tell Edward, mother, that "'tis you
You know I never saw you here !"
He spoke no more, but sweetly smiled,
Until the final blow was given ;
When God took up that pour blind child
And opened first his eyes in Heaven.
Or The melody of " Old Folks at Home" has be
come quite popular. The last number of Zion's Her-
aid gives us the following new version :
The Blest Ones at Home.
Away on the banks of life's bright river,
Far, far away
There will my heart bo turning ever,
There's where the blest ones stay ;
All through the vale of sin and sorrow, ,
Hadijr 1 room,
Still longing for the dawn of nw,
And for the Ulcr.t ones at home.
All without is dark and dreary,
Every where I roam,
Oj brothers, how the heart grows wearjr,
Sighing for the bk-st ones at home.
Thaough all earth's sunny t-cencs I've w-ndcrcd,
In youth's gay morn ;
How many precious hours I've squandered,-
How many mercies scorned :
When seeking sin's delusive pleasure,
Wretched was I ;
But now my heart has found a treasure,-
There with the blest ones on high.
AJ1 without is dark,&c. 1
One hour there is forever bringing' ' ' " ,
Memories of love ; - '
'Twas when my sighs were charigt'd to singing,
Of the blest ones above.
When shall I see my Savious reigning,
On his white throne 1
When will be hushed mo heart's complaining,
There with the blect ones at houe,? ,
All till then is dark and'dreury, J
Every where I roam, '
O, brothers' how the heart: gVows weary.
Longing for the blest ones at home.;
Statistics of Life and Pcalfe.
. The Quarterly Return of the Registrar General of
England, lately published, gives some interesting sta
tistics. It comprises, among other things, the. births
i and deaths registered by 2.191 registrars 'in all the
districts of England and Wales during the summer
I quarter ending September 30,:i lS53' They' may be
! briefly stated as follows : f
Natural increase of population, 55,249
Estimating the births and deaths in Scotland and
Ireland in the same proportion as the above, the con
clusion is arrived at that tho population of the united
kingdom has increased from natural causes about
83,000. But.during the same period, it appears that
5 87,467 emigrants sailed from ail the ports of the uni
ted kingdom, viz : S,b26 lroai Jionuon, riymouin ana
Southampton; 63,00 from Liverpool; 2,807 from
Glasgow and Greenock, and 7,437 , from Irish ports.
A lar"e proportion of the einicrraiits from Liverpool
were Irish and it is inferred that the population of
Ireland is decreasing, and that.of England, is slowly
, The whole number of deaths registered during the
quarter, (92,332) it is remarked, is less' by S,1G5 than
the number recorded in the corresponding quarter of
1852. A similar depression was remarked in the
summer quarter ; of -1848 immediately before the
breaking put of the Asiatic Gliolers in that year, thus
furnishing another token of a probably severe visita
tion of the epidemic during the ccmingyear. In 1848
the epidemic began in October, and prevailed to an
inconsiderable extent for several . months ; declined
during the winter, revived in the spring of 1849, and
increased gradually till September, when there were
ao,7n deaths Irom it in the kingdom ; and it finally
disappeared in December. The whole number of
deaths from Lngland, during the year 1849, was 53,'
293, the mortality being at the rate of 30 in 10,000 of
the inhabitants. It was at the rate of 50 in 10,000
on the coasts; 17 in 10,000 in the inland districts ;
125 m 10,000 in thedistricts including large sea-ports ;
85 in 10,000 of the inhabitants of low river and sea-
side districts; 02 in 10,000 in London ; 33 in 10.000
in inland townsrwhile in small towns and the country
around the river sources only 12 in 10,000 perished.
The present visitation of the Cholera is observed to
resemble, in many respects, that of 1843-49. ;'.
, To return to the mortality of the quarter ending
September 30th. It appears that in London the deaths
were 12,918, which is below the average, and in a de
cidedly lower ratio than any American city. We pub
lished, some time since,'a statement of the mortality
in the four principal American cities during the same
quarter, which we reproduce here, with the figures of
London added Tor the sake ot comparison :

1 liilaaelpnia, although presenting a Wa favorable
report than London, is the only one of th American'
m.. 0 nidi, can dc Drought into any comparison with
.1 01 the score of health. New York, with cne-fourtli
tuepupuiatiun.has, during a quarter, a record of deaths
equal to nearly three-fifths of that or London. The
mortality of London is a convincing proof of the fl-

unhealthy. Good sanitary measures will preserve the

system is the best in existence. If a similar system
could be introduced into our cities.similar food result

generally to be commended for their teard to the

healthiest city in the Union; but it would' be time

drainage, the water supply, the cleaning system, &,c,

Administioii of Taylor and l ilimore, announced
the nomhiation of Mr. Pierce with the remark that
he had always ieui ultra in his 1 d ocacy of the
ri glils of the States and that FrecsuiU rs, when
they supported him, by way of -penance' - &r 'their
past Otlences, would haveto "eat Southern ' jrt'."
In the same spirit the Boston Alias,' a Whig papr
of note, now speaks of the supporters of Mr. Pierce
as " crawliny al Ike feet of ihe slave democracy,, cf
the South, and prrfessing i tciUingrest to oe hewers
of wood and droolers of ivutler for the task mastej'9

Such is the opinion of the Northern opposers of
