" Sister nnd brother wound their arms around
each other, and the golden light came streaming
in, ana icn upon mem Kicked together.
"The poldcn rinnleonthe wall came

Domliey tf Son,
Through the curtain poured the sunlight
Willi a sudden gush of joy,
Where Uhjii his bed of weakness
Lay the dying little Imy.
On the rising airs of Evening
Balmy pound' of Summer came,
And a voice amid their music
Seemed to call him by his name !
And the golden waves were dancing
Oil the Hooded Chamlier wall
On the sunny hair ot Florence
And the brow of little Paul!
As the sunset's tide receding,
Ebbed ngain into the sky,
Passed ihelnint hue Irom his features
And the lustre Irom his eye ;
As if up the rosy surges
Of that shining river's flow,
Went his spirit to the angel.
Who had clniined it long ago !
Fonder still, and full of yearning,
Seemed to come e'er gentle call,
And the throb ol lile grew fainter
In the heart of little Paul.
But the fond arms of a sister,
Like a link around him lay,
Chaining tack his tlulteriiig spirit
To tlie love which was its stay,
And Its own weak arms were folded
In a clinging dear embrace.
Till his cheek and dewey forhead
Rested gently on her lace.
Slowly sank Ins weary eyelids;
One laint breathing ili.it was all,
And no more the kiss of Florence
Thrilled the lips of little Paul.
Through his childish world he wandered
Like n stranger, slill and lone,
For the depth ot Manhood's leeling
Had within his bosom grown.
Yet tlie hue whose meek entreaty,
In his patient features smiled,
Gave at Inst the sainted Mother,
To the happy cherub child !
Sad and silent through the chamber
Crept the shadows up the wall ;
Cold against the cheek of Florence
Grew the cheek of little Paul !

It was about eleven o'clock at nin-l.t. when a
lnng howl was heard, which sounded so close
and startling, that we with one accord suspend
ed our work. Attlio same moment, old George,
who was thp sentry, called to in. A dozen
enormous wolves were prowling about the out
side edge ol the I right circle thrown by our lan
terns. Fe.ir of the light kept them off; but each
moment they were growing bolder, and it was
easy to Bee that they would lKt bo long without
attacking- us. j
I looked to tlie priming ot my caroine and
pistols. Ivan was similarly armed ; but the
c.irriers had only their pikes, hatchets, and
knives. With these weapons, however, they
uoicny awaiteu trie attacK.
Half an hour passed in this slate of suspense,
the wolves occasionally advancing a pace or
two into the circle ol light, uut always retreat
ing again. At length one of them approached
near, that I asked George if it would not
be advisable to reward his temerity witli a bul
let. 'Ye,' was the answer; 'if you are certain of
hitting him.'
' Why must I be certain ?
' Because, if you kill him his companions will
amuse themselves with eating him. To be
ore, added he to hunsell, ' il thev once taste
blood they will be mad lor more.'
' The mark is so good, said 1, ' I can hardly
miss linn.
Fire, then, in God's name !' returned
George ; ' all this must end one way or the
other.
Before tho words were out of his mouth, I
fired, and the wolf writhed in agony nn the snow.
In an instant half a dozen wolves darted for
ward, and seizing their comrade, carried him off
in the darkness.
The howling now increased, and it was evi
dent moro wolves were arming. At length
there was a moment's silence.
' Do von hear the horses? said George ; ' how
they neigh and paw ! It s a signal foi Us to be
prepared.
' I thought tho wolves were gone,' replied I j
they nave lelt on howling.
' No; thev have finished their repast, and are
preparing foran attack. Here they come.'
At that moment, eight or ten wolves, that, in
the imperfect, flickering light, looked as big as

touched, and the wolf had broken the pike with
his teeth ; so that for a moment tho man opposed
to him had nothing but a pole wherewith to de
fend himself. Tlie second wolf was scrambling
along the cart, and was on the point of attack

other, and fired one of my pistols into the ani-
mars car. tie leu iieaa uy me side oi ins com

Meantime, Ivan was hard at work, and I heard
a carbine or two pUtol shots, Avhich told me
that our adversaries were as warmly received
on the left as on the right of the line. An in
stant later, four wolves again crossed the circlo
of light; but tins tune in lull retreat; and at the
same moment, to our no small astonishment,
three others, that wo had thought dead or mor
tally wounded, raised themselves up and follow,
led their companions, leaving largo tracks of
uiood behind them. Three carcasses remained
upon the field of battlo.
Load again, and quickly, cried George. 'I
know their wavs: thev will ho back aoain di
rectly.' And the old man pointed with his fin
ger into the darkness. I listened and heard dis
tant bowlings replying to the nearer ones.
What we had as yet had was a mere sklr-
inlsh ; the general engagements was yet tn
come.
' Look behind von ?' cried a voice. I tnrnf il
and saw two firry eves gleaming on the top of
Iho snow wall In the rear, before I could draw
a trigger, the wolf cave a lean, and falling mint
one of the horses, struck his fangs Into Ills
inroai. xnree men lelt their waenns.
'There Is but one wolf,' cried George, 1 and
ono man is enough. Let the others remain at
their posts.
"wo of the men resumed their places. Tlie
third crept upon his hands and knees among the
horses, who, in their terror, were plunging vio
lently, and throwing themselves against Hie
carts by which thev were surrounded. The next
instant I saw the Lrloam of a knife blade, and
the wolf let go the horse, which tcared upon
his hind legs, the blood streaming from his
throat. A dark mass was rolling and strug
gling on the ground ; it was the man and
wolf.
At the end of a few seconds the man stood nn.

and help me carry away this carrion. The
horses won't be quiet while it lies here.'
They drairsed tliu wolf towards George's war.

man took it by the hind legs, as though it had
been a hare, and threw it outside the line of

I irave Georirc mv barbine. and hastened to
the wounded man. A part of his jaw was torn
away, and the blood (lowed abundantly from a
large wound in his neck. 1 for a moment fear
ed that tho carotrd artcrv was omened, and.
scarcely knowing whether I did right or wrong,
i seized a nandlul ot snow an applied it to the
wound. The sufferer uttered a cry and fainted
away.
' Oli God !' cried Louise. ' have mercy upon
him !'
' To your posts 1' shouted George in a stento
rian voice : ' the wolves are upon us.
I left the wounded man in Louise's care, and
urnped upon tho cart.
1 can give no details of the combat that fnl-
lowed. 1 had too much occupation myself to
attend to what my comrades were doing. Wo I
we attached bv at cast twentv wolves at once.
After discharging my two pistols, I armed my
s.'lfwith an axe George gave me. The fight
lasted nearly a quarter of un hour, add certainly
the srene was one of the most terrible it is pos
sihle to imagine. At length, nnd just as I was
splitting the skull of a wolf that hung on to one
of the wheels of my wagon, a shout of triumph
resounded all along our line, and again our
enemies fled ; but this time it was for good.
ihrce of our men wcra wounded, besides
Nicholas, who was still alive, but in a desperate .
condition. We were obliged to shoot tho horse 1
that had been torn bv tho wolf.
By daybreak a nussace was opened through
the wall of snow, and we resumed our journey.
The evening of the same day we reached a
small villagu where we found an inn, that under
any other circumstances would have been pro
nounced abominable, but which appeared a pa
lace after three such days had passed. 1 bo
following morning wo parted from our friends,
the carriers, leaving George five hundred rubles

Prince iVlcttcrnich.
As this mo?t distinguished of living statesmen
lias just anivcd in London, and is likely to re
main" for some time amoiK'lSi readers may
like in have nt hand a brief note of his nublic
career a career moro remarkable in its pros
perty as well as In Its downfall than that of any
other living man, Louis 1'liilippo alone except
ed. Indeed, it is more remarkable than even
thatofthn ex-Kinir himelf, both In the heichl
to which it liflcd him, and the wholly unlooked-
for suddenness of bis downfall ! lor it is to be
remarked that while Metternich, during his
prosperity, stood on a loftier height than ever
Louis Philippe did, and for a period of double
the duration of tho latler's reign, he had no
claims to place to support him there but his own
capacity j and, on the other hand, his fall is at
tributable to no fault or error of his own, but.
on the contrary, to that noble faith in his prin
ciple! or polity ana ins system oi ruie, hi which
he has never once faltered or swerved during
an uninterrupted reicn of more than thirty
years a reign not over one country or people
alone, but virtually over three-fourths of tho ci
vilized portion of continental Europe.
Metternich was bom at Coblcntz, on the
Rhine, on the 15th of .May, 1773, of an ancient
and noble family to the younger but only eA-
ting branch ot which the sutijfct in our notice
longs. He was educated at the University ol
Strasbourg, under the direction ot a pnvate
tutor, sent with him by his family ; and several
of the boyish friendships which lie contracted
during that early period staved bv him tlirouirl
life; l)rin private society Metternich has evei
been extremely popular, no less from tho lively
piquancy of his wit than the naive and frank
simplicity of bis manner and bearing.
Among the school friendships he contracted
at Strasbourg are said to have been those which
he maintained to the last with the lato Earl
Grey and benjamin Constant.
At the close of his academical studies, young
Metternich made the usual ' grand tour,' which
was, at that time, considered de rigiter with
young men of his rank in life; at the conclusion
of which, he returned to Vienna, and, sliortlj
afterwards, married a daughter of the famous
i'rince Kaumtz, the most remarkable man ol
that day remarkable, no less lor liis strange
eccentricities than for liis sterling talents.
fllcllcrnicira first entrance Into public Hie
was as Secretary of Embassy at the Congress
of Rastadt ; nnd even ut that early period of his
diplomatic career, he is said tn have shown ex
traordinary powers of politicHV forosight, parti
cularly as.regarded theXittirjJortui.-os of Napo
leon, wuo was men ai vie ncigni oi nis power
and glory.
Metleruich was next attached to Count Sta
dion, first al Berlin, and afterwards at St. 1'c
tersburgh; and these preparatory initiation-
into tho very heart of Eurfrpean diplomacy seem
to have fully fitted him, even at tho early uge ol
twenty-three, for an appointment on which it
may bo said that the ultimate late or rallier,
let us mrc say, the penultimate fate of conti
nental Europe mainly depended, we allude to
the Embassy to Paris, to which Metternich was
appointed in I80R, just after tlie Treaty of Pres.
burg; consequently, at an epoch most impor
tant to Austria.
We have alluded to those personal qualities
in Metternich which secured to him through
life the friend-hip of his buoyish d lys. Those
qualities did still more for linn now, for they at
nco faciualcd and fixed tho personal favor and
confidence of Napoleon, and enibled the young
ambassador to gain and exerci-o an influence
over him that no foreigner ever before did, and
to turn that inguence to an account that may
be said to be felt cen at the present day. In a
word. Metternich succeeded incompletely nnoo-
winking tlie Emperor as to the ulterior objects
and designs of Antria, and thin enabled the
latter no mature and consolidate those plum and
nrenarations which (bv tho heroic help ol Ln-
gland, be it always understood) finally brought
about the downfall of the usurper.
It is not a little remarkable, and may be cited
as an extreme case, in illustration of the art of
diplomacy as then understood and practiced in
Europe, t'hat the ftinous, or rallier tlm infamous
marriage of Maria Louisa with Napoleon is note
understood to havo been neither more nor less
that a subtld trick of Metternich's, to bring about
that downfall which it unquestionably did ulti
inately ellVct. Whut is still more remarkable.

The dralt ol a memorial to Congress, on the
general subject of river and harbor improve
ments, and 111 special reliitation or some recent
doctrines put forth in opposition to tho power ol
Congress ill this behalf, was presented by Mr. J.

mittees, in elucidation of the commerce and Iiu.
sinrss of Iho lakes and mors, and of the ditli
cullies and dangers, by reason of Insufficient
harbors and obstructed rivers, in the prosecu
tion of that business.
The Report was carefully considered and
unanimously adopted, and a committee was de
puted to proceed to Washington, as soon as the
signatures of tho respective members of the Ex
ecutive Committee should be obtained, and lay
the memorial before Congress.
It is, wo say without fear of being disproved
by the eventual judgment of the public, the a
blest and most original argument in favor of the
power and duty of Congress, to aid the com
merce among the States Try harbor and river im
provement and the most complete refutation

We trust this memorial, backed by the copi.

it, will avail to prompt Congress to do what is
so much needed, for tho benefit to the harbors
and rivers of our land. iV. 1'. Cutiricr awl

In the absence of the definite Information al-1
luded to, we of course infer that the nomination
of Gen. Taylor received tho authoritative sane-1
lion of the Convention, that ho has been selected
as tho Whig most likely, in existing circum
stances, to unite the wishes and the efforts of
the People of this Country, in rejecting the prin
ciples, arresting the measures and defeating the
candidates, of the Destructives who, for the
past four year, have had possession of tlie'

majority of the Contention, thus expressed, was
harmoniously ratified by the several Delegations
who composed it. If so, (and our respect for
and confidence in the integrity and patriotism ol
the National Convention do not permit us to
doubt nn the subject) we certainly acquiesce in
the result, and shall givo to General Taylor

It is surely unnecessary for us to say that
Gen. Taylor has not been our choice for the
Presidency, first or second ; and that his nmn
inatiou has received no encouragement from
the columns of this paper. Nor need we
say that wo look for the last lime upon the

IT" It is absolutely astonishing to observe how
little compassion our friends of the barnburner
Democracy have for Mr. Cass! The Sentinel
mil it " take up a labor" with its quondam breth
ren again, for their " ridiculous" and "disgust

bing as the following, which we find in the Al
bany Atlas, is "flat burglary!"
Gen. Cass's RtswsAtiOi. Gen. Cass had re
signed his seat in the Senate. He lits thus
sought to avoid committing himself on thoqiies

as Ihe hill for the organization of Oregon, on tho
principle of which he is committed, might, at
this crisis, embarrass h!m. To vote against a
