A correspondent sent us. the followinz
poem, requesting us to make such atera
tions as we thought proper. We have
re-written it, greatly changing, the melre.
& the language; but we have endeavored
to preserve many of the sentiments.
The statesmam'Wisame will ever shine,
And bright will be the warrior's glory;
Napoleon when he cross'd the Rhine
Shall o'er be-sang in poet's story.
4peak ntof Greek or noble Pole;
.iE was the boldest ot' the bold.
Oh ! his was not the glory of atn hour! .
O'er prostrate hosts. he fiercely strode;
1'roud. in his car of wrath he rode!
And nations bow'd them to his mighty pow'r.
Though like a meteor bright he shone,
Befbre the Sun of' Washington,
His star turns pale-Our Chiet's great namie.
Transcends "all Greek-all Romall Came."
He was a victor bold and brave.
He warr'd-but 'iwas a land to save!
Oh! should the times a Chief demand,
To save fron chains, a suft'rjtag land,
May one arise-and at the sound
Of his loud voice, may from the ground,
Arm'd warriors sprinr, and as his had
He lifts aloft, may thousand muskets gleam all
o'er the land!
Let tvrnntsqttake! They'll son be hurl'd
Froni their proud thrones-O'er a!l !he world
The sun of freedom pours his light,
And scatters far the shades of night.
Written for the Fifieth Anniversary ofthe
Inauguration of. General Washington,
April 30, 1839.
BY WILLIA3 C. BRYANT.
Great were the hearts. and strm.sg the minds
Of those who framed, in high debate,
. The immortal league of love that biuds
Oar fairbroad empires, State with State.
And ever hallowed be the hour.
When, as the anspiciots task was done,
In solemntnist, the sword of power
Was giv'n to Glory's unspoiled son.
That noble race is gone; the suns
Of fifty years have dawn'd and set:
But the tIright liniks. thse chosen ones
So strog ly foazed, are bright ev'n yet.
Wide-as our own free race incr.ase
Wide shlnl extend the elastic chain,
And hold in everlasting pe-ace.
State after state, a nighty train.
THEDAoUFRROTTPE, OR SOLAR E.-4

It is very common in certain circles. we
are told, to notice fingers blackenedl by the
nitrate of silver. We believe, Psyet. nom.
of our experimenters have been able to re
tain the color imparted to the nitrated pa

images inverted. We have heard it .in
timated that the F'rencb government are
ahout to make arraugemeents with Mr.
Daguerre, by which in the course of t wo

Within this period it is expected that the

As usual in suchi cases, the credit of Mr.
Daguerre's discovery is claitmed b3 a hs
of comipetitors. And im truth there is evi
dence that others have anticipated him in
some of thte principal features of the art
The L.ondon Athenem says.
The most curious fact itn relation to this
discovery yet remains to he told. It would
appiear, considering the character of the
- pictures, all hut impossible that imopres..
sions fromn them could lhe tmultiplied aufter
the manner of an eneravinc: .31. Daguerre,
indeed, stated to as that it was im possible,
apd itis but reasonable to believe clhat he
is fully informed of the nature and extent
of the discoveries as M. Niepee himelf
Yet, in 18.37, M. Niepceenot onlh declareet

stood anti behieves that no engravmger t180l
was used, but that the drawings were
fixed by the action of light, and the plates
subsequently engraved by a chemical pro
coss, discovered- by Mr. Niepee. 2If so,
the greatest secret of all rematins yet to be
made public, and is, we believe, as un
known to Mr. Dagtterre as to others.
