O, boatman ! wind lint horn again,
For never did the list'ning nir
Upon its invnus bosom bear
f?o wild, so soft, so sweet a stinin 1
Whnt though thy notes arc sid iinJ lew,
Jly cicn' simp'e boiilman blun,
Yet i'enth puis- to nature true.
And mflodv in everv lone
How oil in t'oyliood s joyous day,
Unmindful of the Inpsing hours,
I've loitered on my homeward way
By wild Ohio's brink of flowers,
Wiide some ione boatman from the deck
I'oitred his soft numbers to that tide,
As if to charm Itom storm and wreck
The boat wheie all Ins fortunes ride J
Delighted Nature dinnk the sound,
Knclnntcd echo bore it round
In whispers soft and softer still,
I'irim lull to plain and plain to hill,
Till e'en the ihoughlless, frolic boy,
Khli' wiih hope, and wild wilhjoy,
Who gamboled by the river's side,
And sported Willi the fritting tide,
Kelt some thine new pervade nis breast,
Change bis light Flep, repress bis jest,
Bent o'er the Hood his eager car
To catch the sounds Inr off, yet denr
Drank the sweet draught, but knew not why
The tenr of rapture fill'd his eye,
And can he now, to manhood grown,
Tell w hy those notes, simple and lone
As on the ravished ear Ihey fell,
Hound eerv sense in magic spell.
There iu a Tide ol feeling given
To nil on earth, its lountnm Heaven,
Beginning with the dewy flower,
Just ope'd in Horn's vernal bower
Rising creation's oidcrs through
Withloudcr murmur, brighter hue
That tide is sympathy ! its ebb and flow
Giveshfe its hues, its joy and wo.
Music, the muster-spirit that can move
lis waves to war, or lull lhm into love
Can cheer the sinking sailor mid the wac,
And bid the soldier on! nor tenr the grave
Inspire the hunting pilgrim on his road,
And rlcvnte his soul to claim his God.
Then boatmen I wind that horn ngarn
Though much of sorrow moik its strain,
Yet are its notes to sorrow dear ;
What though lliey wake loud memory's tear '
Tearsare s.ul incinuiy'ssacied least,
And raptmc oil her chosen guest.

dinner parly given by a family nf soma unto In
tlio place, al wlucli uit minister wan present jind
at which Iho witio circulated freely, a rather
sc-indalous report got abroad, and' soon went
buzzing over the village. A young man who
mado in. secret of being fond of his glass, and
who was utlhis dinner party, met, on the day
following, a very warm advocate of temperance,
and a member of a different denomination to
that of which Mr. Manlius was a minister, and
said to him, with a mock gravity ' wo had a
rara aris at our dinner party yesterday, l'er
kins.' Indeed ! What wonderful thing was that ?'
' A tipy parbon.'

Tho man's eyes became instantly almost as
tug as saucers,

ed. ' I didn't bay so. I call no names.
Ho was present I know: and drank wine, I
am told, liko a fish,'
' I wasn't aware before that fishes drank wine,'
said tho man gravely.
' It was .Manlius, wasn I It urged tlio otnor.;

Never before, in a gravo and solemn assem

I ANOTHER NEW EN l'ERl'RISE.
I We yesterday had the pleasure of mention
, ing tho arrival of tlio first cargo of oro from the
llruco imne. Wo nave to uay to record the
opening of another channel for Canadian trade.
The Ireland, a steamer of about thrco hundred
tons burden Is now chartered, nnd will on Mnn-
day sail from this port direct for Chicago, with
ft enrim rif Nt. lilies salt. Thn phnrtn nh
Messrs. Young, Holmes and Knapp, and we tin.
dcr-tood that Ihey propose tn forward some oil,
brandy and other articles out of bond by the
same vessel, by way of an cxprimont on the
markets of the far U'est. There will be some
suiiiisii iimoiig ner cargo ui wincii wo tin
ilerstandu lari'e qinntitv Is conmmed In Mich
Igan and the neighboring Sutos, and which has
hitherto been sent by way of New Orleans, and
the Mississippi. It Is unnecessary to point out
the ndvantago of the St. Isiwrcnce route over
the southern orfe for that pecics of merchan-
' dize. Tliere can be no doubt, that ilh the for
wuruing me nr"i now .jJSs.'eil uv nnr m, r
cantile community, the wholn of this brunch of
irauo must accrue to us. Jim vessels which
Comu here with fish from tho Lower Ports, will
of course always meet with cargoes of provis
ions for tiio ictiiin oyage. In this enlerprize,
as in so many olhors, tho hand of the unskilful
legislator is perceived in the iniurv of the mor.
ch tnt. Mr. Christie's exertions In favor of his
oriental constituents, have saddled the imporler
of cod or mackerel from Nova Scotinn port",
with a duty, which, we believe, exceeds 75 per
cent. The late intercolonial acts will, however,
set mis io rights. The steamer, besides the
usual nrticles of produce, will, we arc told,
bring down a number of live cattle.

The Unppy Former.
Saw ye the Former at bis plow,
As you were riding by !
Or nearied 'neath his noonday toil,
When summer sun was high !
And thought you that his lot was hard,
And did you thank your God,
Thst you nnd youis were not condemn'd
Thus like a slave to plod J
Come see him at his harvest home,
When garden, field nnd tree,
Conspire with flowing stores to fill
His barn and granary.
His beautiful childien gilly spoil,
Amid the new mown hiy,
Or proudly nid with vigorous arm,
His task as best they may.
Th" dog partakes his master's joy,
And guard the londed wain,
The feathery people chip their wings.
And lead their youngling train.
Ferrhnnce the hoary grandsirc's eye
The glowing scene surveys,
And breathes a blessing on his race,
Or guides their evening prnie.
Their Harvest Giver is their friend,
The maker of the soil,
Andeaith.the mother, gives them bread,
And cheers their patient toll.
Come, join them round their wintry hearth,
Their heartfelt pleasures see,
And you ton better judge how blest
The Tanner's life may be.

1!T We give place to the following commu
nication from one who probably belongs to the
Barnburner division of the terrified Democracy.
It furnishes a toter.ihly (air offset for tho " plain

we inert it principally bocausa It is no more
than fair that our Barnburner friends should
have a hearing. W'c must give notice, howev
er, that we cannot nffjrd to give them a great
deal of room in our small paper. Wo rather
think they might strike a birgain with tho Serf-
Unci for a column or so a day, as that old Hun
kcr concern lias wholly suspended all advocacy
or notice of its own parly and candidates, and
'turned itself out to pvsture on th green hills of
Whig dissensions. Our readers don't mean to
vote for Lawis Cass, we presume to s.iy, so that
our correspondent, "a true democrat," is bring
ingcoals to New C.tsllo by arguing against that
I gentleman in our columns. The Sentinel is the
place for him to do good, and as that accoinmo
: dating journal has inserted the Massachusetts
I Barnburner Call for a Convention to oppose
j Cass's olection, without charge, we Bee no rea
i son to doubt that it will bo equally courteous to
Barnburners nearer home.
