The following lines were written by .iss
Cynthia I. Stow, who perished in the sad
andi melancholy wreck of the " Home" in
October las:, and were given to her broi her
a few hours befoire sie embarked on her
fatal voyage. lie has handed them to ti
for publication, of which they are indeed
worthv. There iS a deep melancholy pre
vaiding themt which "is pleasant thouth
mournful to the soul," and one can easily
imagine, almost prophetic of tihe ailietive
event which overtook their gifted aithor.
If the doctrine, that tile dead are the un
wearied witnesses of our conduct,be true,
how beautiful aid touchingly approprtate
anre the first three stanzas!
Miss Stow was a young lady of superior
attainmenre, of well regulated mind, and of
uncommon promise. She wi. elucated in
this city and there aro not a few here who
canl appreciate her worth and sincerely sym
pathise with her relatives in their irrepara
ble loss.-Troy Buclget.
TO MY BROT11.R
When the last rays of twilight's hour,
Fall gently o'er the drooping flower
WhlenC mists are ga thering on the hill,
Nor so'nil is heard save mountain rill
[Then haer!the echo whispering near,
In softest lcetients to thino ear
I lo'e thee, deare-t brother!
Wtensilencer reigns throulh earth and sea,
n ,anur of mnemnory
When music wakes her thrilling tine,
And Atittini winds around thee moan
Their accents bear,. aId ah rz joicc!
For hark ! there comes a well knoii iw voice,
I love thee, dearest brother!
When faney lift her radiant wiinr,
And morning lirds around thee sing
When joy lights up thy beaming eye,
And love's enchantment too is nigh
.Whei cnhu blue waters around thee flow,
Then bear thy sister, breathing low
I love thee, dearest brother!
Should disappointment's withering breath
Consign thy brightest hopes to dcath
Should friendship's trust in boyhood made,
In after years prove faith betrayed ;
Then to thy sister yet return,
For oh, her heart will fondly burn
To clasp her dearest brother!
Should sorrow cloud thy coming years,
And bathe thy prospects all in tears,
Reietuber that the Rainbow's hie
Is bright 'mi' clouds and sunshine too:
Remember though we're dooled to part,
The:e lives one fond and fithiful heart
That loves her dearest brother!

The history of the potato is a regular oie.
flee's Encyclopedia states thant lhe poltato
was brought fronm Virgmii by Mir WVahler
Raleigh to I reland,--the wrilcer shiuld
have said from South Amecrica,--in the
latter poutof the sixteenth ceituiry. lie
had no' 'idea of its ever hemng used~ as an
esculent tit tha.t time. It wa oitSnte'd out
to him as a beatifuil flower. anad its hard,
hulby root iwas said byv the ntatives, to pos
sess medical gjtaliuies. lie took it to Ire
laud, where he hadl e-tates pr"euted to
him by (Queen ElizabethI, andl pla~ntedl it in
his garden. Thel flow'r dlid not improv~e by
etiltivation, hat the root grew Ir: eri anid
softer. The potatto int its native bed wias a
coarse grounid tint. The lihought struek rte
pthilosopher to try the poitt as ant eatible,
andil ~ing and roasting it, fouind it by either
process excellent, Ile then gave some
plants to the peasantry, am.d they soot be
.came int a measure, a substitute for bread
whe'n tile harvest was scanty.
TIhe potato was successfully cnltivated in
Irebintd buefore it wa :s thought of in Eng
land. It grewv inito favor by slow de~grees,
atnd was so little knoiwn whetn oor pilgrim
fathers camne to this cotutry, that it was
'lot thioutght of for at crop ini the Nri w R orld.
It would have beetn an e'xcellent thing for
hemt, if they had( beetn negnaintedl withI tho
value of the potato It wias not tuntil I17'9,
that the it ish Potatb reached this country.
A colony of Presbyterian Irish whto settled
in L~ondotnderry, in N. llamlpshiire, broueht
the root with them. These people found
heir ravorite vegetable thrived well inl new
grounnds. By dcegrees their ncighbos came
into the habit of rasing potatoes, but many
years elapsed befbro the culkivation of thein
was generally aiong the yeoainry of this
country. Long after they were held in
coneiipt, nnd tile master mechanuic often
had to stipulate with his apprentice that lie
should not he obliged to eat potatoes. Anl
aged mechanic ouce informed me that he
had raised nine bushels, having at that mne
(1746) a dozen apprentices, but did not
venture to oifler then a boiled potato .with
their ncnt, but left them) in tihe cellar for
tine apprentices to get and roast as they
pleased ; but soon found that he should not
have enough for seed, and locked upl) what
was left. The next year ie raised the
enormous quanitity of thirty bushels; the
neighbliors siared, bit the boys devoured
them the Following 'winter.
Aboit this time some of the gentry
broueght this vegetable on their tables, and
the prejudice against them vanish- d. Thus
by degrees, a taste fimr- them was formed
never to be extinguished. The culture of
the potato is niow well understood: a crop
ieliorates instead of impoverishes the soil.
and the culture can be increased to any ex
lent. Thus by the curiosity of onne lover of
riatinre, and his experinents, has an humble
weed been brought from tle mountain of
:muth Amerien, and spread over Europe
anad North America, until it is enphtically
called tine bread of na ticns." Still the!
cointry Crom whinice it was taken, has been
too ignorant or superstitions to attempt .its
eulntivation until wvithin a few years. Now
el lights of science are chasilng away tine
long deep shadows of tie Andes.
