From the Glasgow Pilot,
The Far-off Clime.
Ti e is a land, unknown, afar.
Beyond ths reach of mortal atrife
' Where holy beings never war.
Or mingle in perplexing strife.
Tl ilia that trouble and destroy
The sun.shine of our happy hoars.
Ne'er reach this clime of perfect joy.
This world of happiness and flowsre.
No envy or revenge is known
; la this unsullied land of peaee,
Bot being round a dtnling throne
Breaths a para atmosphere of bliat..
Oh that I were a spirit there,
Far from the envious, grovelling crowd, !
Who worship wealth on earth, to ahare
A pUee iniMf the rich and proudT
I'd not fear death, if death would bring
- My spirit te that blest abode,
Swiftly I'd fly, on airy wing
And distance stars along the road.

m looking cut for the charge made
against him, Rory gave a knowing
wink of the eye at a couple of ac
quaintances who were in court, as
much as to say, "Now, boys, wont
we have fun?1'
"You are charged, Rory Regan,"
said the Recorder, "by Mrs. Malone,
with disturbing the peace of her
house; beside-, she says, she fears per
sonal violence from you."

which encouraged the party that

A nut roa nativists. The Colum
bus correspondent of the Cincinnati
Gazette, under date of the 12th inst.,
"In the House, the' instructions tr
our Congressmen to oppose any al
teration in the naturalization laws,
were reported back, with some tri
fling amendment. Mr. Flinn,?Mr.
Reemelin, and Mr. Archibold were
on their feet; the two former wanted
the question taken as a test question!
This was done by yeas and oays,
when, to their amazement, only three
members opposed the'passage of the
resolution! which was, that it was, at
this time, inexpedient to alter ths
naturalization laws. So this test
question turns out to be no question
Thus, in the House of Representa
tives of Ohio, a majority of the mem
bers of which are whigs, only three
men could be mustered to vote in fa
vor of any alteration of the naturali
zation laws. We doubt whether the
the Aborigines can parade more than
twelve or fourteen men in the popu
lar branch of Congress. The corres
pondent of the Gazette is right in de
claring that "this test question turn
out to be no question at all." Nativ
ism is hostile to the national feeling.
