tion and improvement of the militia, and
in his anxious solicitude. to dischrge faith
fully the arduous duties which his commis

conspcuous as an oflicer,whilst his kindness
of manner, emanating from a benevolent
heart, secured for hiin the :respect and es

by his office.

specimen of its poetry we quote some beautiful
lines for a Child at play with a Watch.' The
writer is Mrs Osgood, of Boston, the wife of a
yqumg artist, now trying his-peticil in London.
"Art thou laughing at Time in thy sweet baby
glee?
Will he pause on his pinions to frolic with thee?
Oh! show him those shadowless innocenteyes,
That smile with bewilder'd and beaming sur
prise;
Bid himl look on that cheek where that rich hair
reposes,
Where dimples are playing 'be peep' with the
roses!
His wrinkled brow press with light kisses and
varnm,
And-clasp his rough neck in thy soft-wreathing
ann!
Perhaps thy infantine anid exquisite sweetness
May win hlm for once todelay inhls fleetness,
Then-then would I keep thee my beautiful
child!
Thy blue eyes unclouded, thy bloom utdefiled,
With thy innocence only to guard thee from ill,
In life's sunny dawning-a lily-bud still! .
Laugh on, my own Ellen. Iis voice, which to
Ine
Gives a warning so solemn, makes music for
thee ;.
And while I atthose sounds feel the idler'sannoy,
Thou hear'st but the tick of the pretty gold toy !
Hlis smile is upon thee, my bless'd,my own!
Long may it be ere thou feelest his frown.
And oh, may his tread, as he wanders with thee,
Light and soft as thine own *' fairy step be;
And still through all seasons, in storms, and fair
weather,
May tine and any Ellen be playnatestogcther!"
MisecIlaneous.
(inllighanie's heenger. published at Paris,
furnishes the following interesting aecount of a
new musical wonder, in the shape of Monsieur
Mareppe's automaton violin player, which was
not long since exhibited before the Royal Con
servatory at Paris-and caused much admiration.
Oin entering the saloon, I saw a well dressed
handsome figure of a man, apparently between
40 and 50, standing with a violin ill his hand, as
il contemplating a piece of music, which lay on
a desk before him-and had I not gone to see an
autonmaton, I should have believed the ohject
helbire te endowed with life and reason, so per
fectly natural and easy were the attitudes an ex
pression ofcountenance of' the figure. I had
but little time for observation before tha orches
tra was filled by musicians, and on the lender
taking his sent, the figure instantly raised itself
erect, be.wed with miutch elegance two or three
tines, and then turning to the leader. notdded.
as if to say, he was ready. and placed his violin
to his shoulder. At the given signal lie raised
his how, and applyving it to the instrument, pro
duced a Ia 'agiiai.one of the most thrilling and
extraordinaurv flourishes I ever heard-in which
scarcely a seumi-tone within the compass of the
instrutment was omitted-and thi4 executed with
a degree of rapidity and clearness perfectly as
touishling. '[lie orchestra then played a short
symphony, in which the automaton occasionally
joited in a heautiful style. lIe then played a
most brilliant fintsia in E natural with accompa
niments, including a movement alegro mnollo on
the futrth string solo, which was perfectly ibde
scribnble. The tones produced were like any
thing but a violin=-tho expression beyond con
eeption. I felt as if lifted from my seat, and
burst into tears-in which predicament I saw
most persons in the room.
Studdenaly lie struck itnto a cadenza, in which
the harmomecs double and single, arpef ion on the
f'htr strings, and sa'ltos, for which Paiganinai wvas
so justly celebrated, were itntroduaced with thme
grentest effect; and anter a close shake of 8 bars
dutratin, cotmmenced the coda, a presstissima
movemient, played in three parts throtighont.
This part of the pierfornane was perfectlymiagi
cal. I have hteardl the great Italiana. I haveheard
the still greater Norwegian. I have heard the biest
of mnic, bitt I never heard sneh sounads as thetn
salttd miy car. It commenced P P p. rising by
a gradnual crescendo to a pitch ahnost beyond he
lief; andI then by a grautal mnotendo and calendo
died awvay, leavimg the audience absolutely en
chanted. *Monsieur Mareppe' wvho is a palayer
of tao mean order, thenii stepped uip amidst 'thme
most deafening acclnamntions, and stated thatema
lated by the example ofVanecnnson's flute palayer,
Ihe had conceived thin project of constructing 'this
figure, which had cost him many years
of study and lnhor before lie could brmng it to
-comtpletion. Ie then showed to the conmpatny
tihe interior of the figure, wvhich was completely
filled with small cranks, lby which the motions are
given to thme several parts ofthe automatona at the
will of the coanducetor, who has thle whole man
cline so perfectly undaer control, that Monisienr
Mairoppe proptosets that the auatomaton shall pr
form anyv piece of muatsic that shall lbe laid before
himn wvnthim a fortnight. He also showed tant
to a certaiti extent the figu're was self acting, as
on winading tupan string, several af the most heau.
tiful airs were played, afnong wvhich were 'Nel
eor pina,' 'Partant ponr Ia Syrie,' Welber,.slast
WValtz,' and 'La ci d'arem In mann,' all with
splendid emhellishmeunts. Buit the chief d'oeu
v'reis the mantier in whlichfthe figure is maude to
obey the direction of the conductor, wvhereby
it is endowed with a sorts of semi-reason.

Mrs. Crawford, in her Antohiographic

eedote :
"At a party some few years ago, I wi

and likewise in strong contrast to the su

she was, I learnedl some interesting parti
ulars respecting her. A few' months art
her marriage, she was takena ill, and felli
to a trance, which lasted for upwards of
fortnight. Durinig that period her humsbani

Anecdotes of Anainmnl Insint.-in a p
per in the Junie numleer of th~e Bibliotheq
Universelle de Geneve,(so ably edited lay I
de le Rive, whao read several'piapers a~t t:
British association) there are some curio
anecdotes, tending to prove howv near,
tnt quite, to the power of reasoninag the ti
tions of animals approach. Two men wv
were abaout to wvalk to Vovev, agreed
meet at on appoinited place. One of thei
whoa arrived first. fancying lie was too laa
resolved to push on anad overtake his eoi
rade ; but his dog showed symptoams of d
liking this proeeedinag. lie ran backwat
and forwvard s, lingered behind, and at lent
totally disappeared, bumt speedily return
with the wvalking stick of the second per.
in his mouth, lHe had conme late and
down to wvait for his friend, biut the saga
ty of the animal resorted to this evidt
means of teaching them their relative pa
tions and bringing them together. Anotl
dog which they were trvimr to mount
ladder, got so tired of his lesson that he run
away; but the next day lie rettrncd alone ti
to the ladder, and applied himself to-the- it
task just as if his vanity-had been piqued d.
into learning the exercise. A third dog that a
was taught to carry a lantern with his own- d
er,.on winter mornings, before daylight, as a
the latter carried- milk -to - a neighboring tl
farmer, happened one day to be shut tp ei
when his maaterdeparted. When lodsoned, p
he ran and overtook him, but, perceiving- 1
he had not the lantern, he returned to the tc
house, and crising it to be given to hin, al
again hastened to his accustomed light It
work. Another, belonging to a young-stu- P
dent, whose master, while bathing, hid him. a
self among some rushes, was hallooed into til
- the water, as if an accident had happened, mi
when, instead of plunging in, he ran lower te
down the rapid stream, and -took"his sta- "i
tion, watching the river, where it was most P
likely to bring down the body for rescue- A
1 We conclude with one fect mnore, relating o1
' to an animal of which we have been used
to consider innocence, rather than wisdom, o1
t the characteristic. A pigeon fnmiliarised b
to the kitchen,- where it was fed and ca- h
reseed, one day'witnessed the killing of a 1
pullet, and it immediately flew avay and
never returned to the scene of slaughter !

The Blind Restored to Sight.-r. Uigh- i
tower, a young gentleman 17 ypare of age,
r was brought here a few weeks sincp to pro
cure the benefit of a surgical operation. H is -
disease was congenital cataract. The op- 0
eratioa was performed two weeks ago by ?
r Professor Dudley, in lis Amphitheatre;in it
lthe;presence of more than 200 young gen- IT
tlemen,- and we are happy to say that he is P
now enjoying the exquisite pleasure of pe
holding and admiring the beautiesof nature. N
; The long night of obscurity through which (
he has passed from his birth to the present ii
time, is thus suddenly and delightfully inter- B
rupted, and lie is now exercising his young
and hitherto untried vision, in distinguishing s
d colors, forms and the relationship of objects d
around him. A young gentlemen 21 years
old, from Tennessee, and a youth 14 from a
Pennsylvania, have each been operated
h upon for cataract existing from birth, within t
the past year, by the s;me distinguished
strgeoh. In neither of these eases was s
. there .any evidence gi vein, thint objects of
d vision appeared to b" in contact with the
eye of the beholder, or that objects were at

qluired education and the aid of the other Z
senses to correct these supposel natiral
1" errors of vision. In :ill these bir . p-t. at
e peared neither inverted, double or in clhose ii
contact with the organs of vision; hut, on
d the contrary, they seemed in their true posi- n
b tion. We do not deny that shith, like the b
d other senses, is improved by education; but 1'
e the posiqion of Cheselden and most of the ti
old netaphysical writers, that there are
d primitive errors in the exercise filt his sense, I'

Ii fi'ct:-"Alexander during his niareli into
r- Africa came to a people dwelling in peace
o fil huts, who knew neither wart uor S

a- interview with the African chief two of ti5s
subjects brought a case belre himi forI
is jilgemnent. '1'lie dispute was this:-Thel
f, one had bought of the other a picco of I
r- ground which after the purchase, was found I
in to contain a treasure, for which lie felt him,.
w self bound1 to pay. The other refused any
af thing, stating that when he sold the ground c
id he sold it with all the advantages apparent 1
- and concealed, which it might he tiund to
allol. Said thIe chief', looking at the oie C
1ly "you have a soin, arid to the oilier, 'youii
ir have a daughiter: let them he maried, anud

ng. paper. --
Mr.. Fennitnore Cooper has written a
iter to the Editor of the National Gazette,

that paper from the London Quarterly

the.Qarterly upou Mr.. Cooper's book,
doesmot strike us that - he will mneud tho
tatter much by his letter to the 'hiladcl
Iia editor. In the first place, Mr. Fen
inore-J. Fennimore -Cooper notices Sir
Valter Scott as a: writer of Reviews to or
er, and secondly, he calls Mr. Lockhart,
ma son-in-law of that great ian, and him
of one of the finest writers of the day-?a
ack writer," and Mr Cooper proceeds to
ay, that this clas is kept at such an awful
istance from all "genilemen's society" in
nugLmmnd, as prevents theta from knowing
ny thming about the great world in which

Railroad speculations are obtaiuin great

tacles which plans on a large scale must
ecessarily meet with in a country parcelled
at in small portions of territory, a project
as been lormed ofjoining Gcermtny to Italv
y a rail-road. which is to cross the Cantonls
f Appenzell and tihe Grisons. For the pre
ent, the rail-mad is to be esttblished ouly
brough the portion ofeonntry betweeni Baste
