From the Philaddpida U. S. Gazette.
The subjoined piece of poetry, real poetry,
we copy from the Pennsrlvanian. It is a pen
dant to one which appeared originally in the
United States Gazette, some vars since. and
attracted general attention here and in E.ngland;
but especially was it read. applauded and cher
ished here. after it received the stamp of the
London Court Gazette. That was among the
first of Mliss Waterman's productions that re
ceived particular attention. and was the means
of bringing into public notice, and general ap
proval, one whose writings give her a high rank
irgh the best female poet.< of the country.

Unome's holy spells around her heart are cast,
Their gentle music-brenth hath lured him back,
And the soft shadowy pictures of the past,
Start up again before his hotmeward track;
.1y Brother comes.
The echoes of loved voices hush'd so Ions,
Have stolen like spirits through his midi.ight
And tones have whisper'd in their Iry song,
Bringing back monients lit by rainboW Ieams:

But oh ! the eyes t:.'--in j -:r
As his loved foots4teps' eclo 11t %4e r
With their laing watching vigils ii -
And beam but sadly at these words of ch -or
My Brother comes.
But Iong. long weary years have fled away,
And time perchance hath sadly changed his
Blanched his dark locks with the world's slow
But each lorod lineament again we'll trace;
My Brother comes.
Speed hin! white sails, across the heaving deep;
Change bath not crept into our hearts-those
H1ave been but trusty jailors, sent to keep
Closer those tried affections moist An tears;
My Brother comes.

Their gentle music-breath hath lured .in back.
And the soft, shadowy pictures of the past.

From thc South.crn Patriot.
S:t,-I have sent yon these lines, consider
ing them as a curiosity, having been written by
Mr. John Randolph They were obtained from
a gentleman of Philadelphia. at present n th.,
city, to whose father they had been given by
that great man hinself', while on a visit at their
farm. He says they have never appeared in
print, and I submit them to you, that you may
if sir, you think it is proper, publish them.
The subject of them, lhe informs me, wvas an
old Indian of the name of Powles, a very si'iu
-Jar man who lived tot his father's land for five
years, but died a few days before the period of
of this visit. S.
A lovely recittie life ha3 led,
His coul in dusky musings fed,
And dwelled in sylvan nature's arms,
For lie felt her sont-entrancing charms;
in speechless converse, oft they shared,.
And his bosomi'd carcs in thou::ht lie bared
To her synmpathisinig view-but never tore,
With rude tongue, the silence that she wore,
Hecr sacred robe when in mysterious rite,
She and some ethterial- mind unite.
His breathless corse, she, when all forsook,
Received, and to her vivid bosom pressed
With any mother's partial love I ween
His joys, his sober joys! in then she oft 'artook
And she wrapped his sorrows in her mantle
Now he lies there
From that willow
The chill wind flings,
The leaden rain drops
On his earthy pillow,
Pit, pit, pat
Through the inidnight air
From tree to tree.
The Owlet and the Bat
Flap their boding wings
And shriek to the-moonless sky-.
Above his head,
To insult now deed, .
The sparrow hops
And picks her food:
The Night-Hawk's brood
Are heedless fed,
And the prowlingCat
His footprints leave,
-Not dreading w'hat
His stealing~ steps achieve
List! oh hear !
From the 'jacent swamp
Through vapoutrs dim to sight,
To feeling damp,
The wvhip-poor-will's song
Full matny an hour lone,
TelLs the minutes of the mournful night
In his wvoriny ear
And 'nis little momnd.
Is circled all around
With the cold swamp's blight:
O'er his weed- bed thunders roll,
'The lightning flashes
Oh ceaseo!-they alarm not his soul,
But oh give, give reace to his ashes!

CULTIvATION OF IRisH POTATOES
Potatoes delight most in It rith loam, but
not too mhoist. Wet land produces too
much topand watery fruit, which will not
keep through she winter. and is always
strong and unpleasant to the tasse. Very
dry land produces a small crop and knotty
fruit. Land that is apt to hake (as we
commulonly phrase It,) ziould also be a
Fir this crop, the earth should be well
pluughed so as to pulverize and clear it of
weeds. It shouhl I ove not hihm about it to
shadc it-a great error in the' cultivation
of potatoes is, too much hilling of them.
I have found, by many years experence,
that if potatoes are planted in a mellow
soil, they need scarcely any hilbing. They
will hed themselves at that distance from
the surfasce of the ground, which gives
them the greatest adivantage to procure
nourislhntent. This deith, I have obser
ved is generally about lour inches; and this
depth the plant finds by something which
I will venture to call instinct. If the earth
in which you plant potatoes should be
hard, and ;tot yield to the pressure of the
root, it will then tbe necessary to hill them;
but great care must be taken ntt to hill
them too much; never let then ie covered
aibove four incies; and this hillitna must .
given niih discretion; for if they have
bedded themselves (as they will in imellotw
laud) fotr inches, and yout tid Aur itiches
stiore of earth, you suhffrocate the fruit.
Take ar- example; potatoes. just as they
begin to blossom, begin to 6hrm their
uibts. If vou leave thesi now, the frit
wid :row rapidly; but if you. shoid add
if)rt- to the hill. the vouhia bulb, far wait
