Tho following lines uxro writcn on the death
of Mary Ax,n Tilden with no intention of pub
lishing, but being submitted to me for perusal. I
find so much beauty and touching pathos in their
composition, that I tnk,o the liberty of sending you
a copy for publication. A short tunc previous to
her death, at a party, as jfin anticipation of the
melancholy event sho sung "ycep not for me,
when I am gone," with a child-like tenderness
thqt brought tears to every eye. D.
The departed, tho departed,
Mcthinks I scothec now
In all thy childish innocence
With fair and .sunny brow.
Thy merry laugh, lileo silver flow,
Of gcntlo rivulet,
As gurgling through tho vale below,
Is in my memory yet.
Oh Death, coutd'st thmi not spare us
The much lovd little onts.
!i(Wre there not iIiqsp less lovely
TW,That better, could havo gone ?
Whore linger thy sweet spirit
Hovers it round' us now,
Weaving thi flowers of Paradiso
Around each once loved brow I
Dotli glidc.in noiseltsf footsteps
Around thy parents' btd
Brpathes thy pure angel spirit
Around the prithlhcy tread
Dost look upon thy sisters' grir f
' With thy clear epirit eyes,
Would'st woo them from this vale eftenrs,
To joinhce in the skjes ?
Sweet cherub, wo Would fain, bslievc
Tint still thou lingerist near,
To cheer us 'mid our solitude
And wipo away each tear.
Thou bade'it lis "Not to weep for thee I"
Ah ! little did wc.think
That even then thy .spirit .stood
Upon tho grave's cold brink I
Sweetly, I hear thy spirit sing,
JTis, bcck'jijng us to come,
As, tho night-winch chant Iho.rcquium
And sigh around thy homo !

friends were weary of watching. As if loth to
convey a spirit like his to its Maker, the angel
of death seemed to tarry upon tho threshold. His

gone. No stone marks his Iono resting place.

Life and Death of Sexes. The law of life
and mortality betwixt tho sexes arc very remarka
ble. They nrostated thus :
1. In the present condition of the white popula
tion of the United States the number, of females
born per annum js about 12,000 less than the
mnlcG. TUi determines of itself tlint polygamy
is not a natural condition of man, and tho law of
our religion and nature nre tho same that one
man shall bo tho husband of one woman.
2. At twenty yearsof age the females exceed the
males. This proves that between tho birth nnd
twenty tho mortality among the boys has been
much greater than that among tho girls.
3. From 20 to 40 the men atrain much exceed
tho worritn, which shows that this is the period of
the greatest morality among women.
4. From 40 to 70 the dill rmcc rapidly Uirnin
ishes.the female s, as in the early part bf life, gain
ihg on the males. This shows that this is tho po--
nod of danger and exposure to men, the least to
5. From 70 onward the, wqmen outnumber the
men. This snows conclusively that, relatively
speaking, in comparison with men, tho healthiest
period of female life is at its elbse. Absolutely,

blacksmillyof tho namoofCartwright,and among
tho devotees is a fanatic of tho natno ofPugmire,
also ftralth or engineer. Tho latter was married
to a rcspectablo woman of about thirty years of age,
who had bore him three children, nnd was within
threo months of her next confinement. Sho steadily

band, and much altercation had ensued in conse-
quonce. Worn out however, with his repealed so
licitations, and his continued declarations that un
less sho submitted to be baptized in order, sho
would bo eternally lost, sho .declared her intention
to one of her neighbors to obey Lcr iHisband's
wishes, being satisfied, as sho "said, that unlesi she
did so she would never have any more peace with
him. On Ihursday,tho 23d ult, nt eight o'clock
at night, the poor worn out creature was taken
by her husband and tho blacksmith priest down
to the river below tho works, was denuded of all
her clothing excerpt a small flannel singlet and,
notwithstanding her interesting situntion, thoso
wretched fantics, after muttoring some incantations
plunged her into tho stream. The night was
dreadful cold and dark, in consequence of the late
heavy rains the river was running nt a great rate,
nnd was much higher than ordinary. The priest
having hold of her naked arm unfortunately let
gp his grasp, and the curent running like a mill
race, immediately carried her away, and it being
pitch' dark sho was instantly overwhelmed by tho
boiling flood and drowned. The husband walked
homo with great deliberation nnd nonchalance,
and told his neighbors what had occurrd: and af
ter septing himself in a chair, rolled himself in a
flinnel nnd declared his conviction '"that it was
hi! will of God that she should be drowned." ad
ding "that it was the wickedness of her faith that
causi-d it, hut that ,ho was now satisfied that sho
was .in glory." That body wa subsequently
