TIlE SHIP IS REA'
BY MISS GOUL6.o.
Fare thee well! the ship is ready,
And the breeze is fresh and steady
Hands are fast the anchor weighing;
High in the air the streamer's playing;
Spread the sails, the waves are swelling.
Proudly round the buoyant dwelling.
Fare thee well ! and when at sea,
Think of t hose who sigh for thee;
Fare thee well! and when at sea,
Think of those who sigh for thee,
When from land and home receding,
And from hearts that ache to bleeding,
Think of those behind who love thee,
While the stn is bright above thee!
Then as down to ocean glancitig,
With the waves his rays are (lancing,
Think how long the night will be
To the eyes that weep for thee.
When1lhe lonely night-watch keeping,
All below thee still and sleeping
As the needle points the quarter
O'er the wide and trackless water,
Let thy vigils ever find thee
Mindful of the friends behind thee!
Let thy bosom's magnet be
Turned to those who wake for thee.
When with slow and ntle motion,
Heaves the bosom of te ocean
While it ace thy bark iIfi.
And the silver moon is alijg
O'er thi,sky. wi-I eign our,
Couptry, hom, and friends, t ith. a
When the tempest hovers o'er thee.
Danger, wreck anrd death before thee,
While the.sword of fire is gleaming,
Wild the winds, tile torrent streaming;
Then a piotts suppliant bending,
Let thy thoughts to heaven ascending,
Reach the mercy sent, to be
Met by prayers that rise for thee!
BY 1TRS. SIGOURNEY.
The watcl-light of the lovers siream'd
Forth from their lattice high,
As lost itt deep discourse they sate,
While summer windq went by.
The bandog howl'd, the clouds did lower,
Winds shook the willow's stem,
The clock toll'd out the midnight hour
What were such sounds to them.
Oh, steal not on their tranced speech
Of smile.: nd murmur'd sigh,
Shake not the dew -drop from the rose,
Dim not tle opal's dye;
For life hath many a path of thorn
To wound the feet that rove;
But yet no sunnier spot than this
Break not the trance of love.

his ex r4ionsof this nature, he accidental
ly fell W with .a pair of young people who
were about to get married. Mr. Weems
havingimale himself known. was immedi.
ately applied to, to perform the ceremony of
uniting them in wedlock. Afrer this im
portant matter had been settled, the idea
very naturally suggested itself to some of
the company that a dance would be very pro
per on the occasion M r. W. had no objer
tion; andthe only diffictilty which appear
ed to render the prposal impractie-able,was
that they had nofiddler. It was whispered
thant the difficulty could he overcome if cer
tain arrangements could he made. Aeconi
iglv, a curtain was stspended from the
ceiling. extended from one side of the room
to the other, and presently behind it vas
heard the thumbing and tuning of a violin,
and soon after the merry dance began. All
things went on gaily and merrily for a while,
but suddenly the curtain was torn loose,
when lo ! who should the company behold
but Rev. L. Weems, f6ddling awaV as if
for poor dear life itself, but really 'for the
amusement of the dancers. It is certainly
a happy faculty to be able to turn one's
hand to any thing. Mr. Weems was one

Anecdote of Dr. Black.-Soon afler the
appearance of Mr. Cavendish's paper on
hydrogen gas, in which he made approxi
mation to the specific gravity of that body,
showing that it was at least ten titnes light
er than the coalimon air, Dr. Black invited
a party of his friends to supper, informin g
them that he had a curiosity to show them.
When, the company invited, had assembled,
he took them-tnto a room, lHe had the al

and upqn setting it at liberty, it immediate.

and thak some one in the apartment above,

persons who have travelled much in steam
oats, are very strong in th3 opinion, that
ardent spirits have been the cauue of not
only the destruction of the Pulaski, :Put of
all the stearmboats which have been lost at
the south and West. A letter has been pub

geulenah in Virginia, who has travelled
lurmg the pant winter several thousand
miles upon the Mississippi and its tributa

cause of nine-tenths of the loss of life and
property which occur on board 1 the steam

boats in which lie travelled, lie says it was
a general custom, if not universal, to let out
the privilege of keeping the har to some
person who would agree to find the deck
hands and oflicers or the boat in drink. and
would put a certain number of decanters of
spirit on the dinner table every day. Al

men, and profess to limit their views to
the moderate use of spirit, yet, as lie sjays. it

The Cashmere Shawl-Cashmere shawls

111cre alone, whence t:,ev are sent to Surat,
Ben,a,l, or to other partc;of Iadia, and find
their way through these channels all over
the world. The manulicitures give em
ployment to .50,000 men, and activity to
11,(H)( looms. The wool of which they
are m1.ade is not produced in the country,
but is brought firon Thibet, wcro it i4ar
article of extensive tra!fi, regulated with
greatjealousy; it is originally of a dark grey
color, and is bleached in Cashmere. The
yarn of this wool is stained with such co,
lor as may be elcemed best suited for sale,
and after being woven, the piece is once
washed. 'The'_ borders, which usually dis
PlIy a variety of ligures and colors, are at
tached to the shawls after 11tbriction, but
in so nice a manner. that the junction is
not discernable. The shawls usually con

India, are tie sorts usttally sent to Eng
land; the other, long and very narr,>w, with
at large mixture of black in them, are wornt
as a girdle by many of the Asiatic. They
are generally 3old in pairs: the price varies
according to the qualitv, and is considera
bly enhanced by the iinitoduction of flower

and flowers are most esteened: the plain

of Shakspeare may be relieved from th

Hamlet, as seen in Denmark, is to the back
