they are written, give them a corner in
Can glowing gems, or diadems,
Insure sweet peace of mind ?
Can glittering dust, or earthly trust
Thy path contentment find ?
Can ridh array or splendor, say 1
Our upward flight advance!
Can learning's power, or beauty's hour,
Our hopes of Heaven enhance?
Golconda, no! thy gems may glow,
And half the world illume
Their brightest light is lost in night,
When cast upon the tomb.
Proud Princes stay! Crowns pass avay !
Where are your Cmsars now 1
Low in the dust, ignobly thrust,
Earth's mightiest monarch's bow.
Gold has its wings; Earth's loftiest things,
But grovelling fools deceive
That splendor's ray can Heaven essay,
Even idiots scarce believe.
Learning! thy light, beauty! ihy might,
Are transient, fleeting things;
They ne'er can raise one song of praise,
To him, -the King of Kings.
'Tis Virtue's part to teach the art,
Bright happiness to gain;
To fill the 'mind with joys refin'd,
When, like a scroll, the heavens uproll,
And melt with fervent hear,
When rocks are rent and mountains bier
With vales in their retreat
Tben Virtue's power secures the hour,
From chastening wrath divine,
And safe careers, mid burning spheres,
Vithi seraph choirs tojoin. P.
From the Saturday Erening Poi.
Is there a land so bright, so fair,
With sons so brave as thine ?
If thou canst point to such a spot,
That spot shall be forever mine!
Thy forests and thy woods so wild,
Thy mountains high and steep,
Thy mighty rivers that onward rush,
So smooth, but yet so deep.
I have no care-I have no thought
To have a home like his,
To end my life beneath thy "stars,"
Is that life's dearest wish.
No clime like this can cre he found
W~ith beauties grand replete ;
And despots, who once knew no fear,
Life prostrate at thy feet;
And trembling at their coming fate,
Th~e proud oppressors crower ;
Liberty's refulgent rays
Proclaim their ending power.
And now a gentler theme I sing,
Columbia's vituet'S FAIR ;
None ever wore the " mystic ring,"
With mind or form so fair.
But they requitre not the aid
Of pencil or of brush;
Go, seek, and thou wilt find in
Themi, modesty's pure blush.

To-Day man lives in pleasure, wealth,

To-morrow poor, of life itself detnied.
Today lays plans of many years to come;
To-morrow sinks into the silent tomnb
Today his food is dressed in dainty forms;
To-morrow is himself a feast for worms,
To-day he's clad in gaudy rich array ;
To-morrow shrouded for a bed of clay.
To-day enjoys his halls built to his mind ;
To-morrow in a coijin is confined.
To-day he floats on honor's lofty wave ;
To-morrow leaves his title for a grave.
Today his beautious visage wo extol;
To-miorrowv loathsome to thme eyes of all.
To-day he has delusive d reatms of Heaven;
To-morrow cries too late to be forgiven.
To-dlay he lives in hopes as light as air ;

FLO. A AND SLAVERY.
The ms -pportune notice which Mr.
Cuthbertt of Mr. Webster's doctrine -
"that Cog, has, by the Constitution,
power the traflc in slaves between
the dife7 -.. ates of the Union"-has
brought to-it t and to public notice the
report andl Ives of the Massachusetts
Legislatiure n the mouth of April. 1838,
on the who tibject of slavery, in which
all the Al n doctrines are openly main
tained. - O .ting other parts of these re
solves at j tit, and intending to present
the report a . resolves heretfter,-we limit
ourselves. 'esent to the part which re
lates to F , and which becomes emi
tied td '1 gavest consideration" of the
South, no"'. the author orthe doctrines
applicable t.rida has become,by a freak

ercised in t i 'ntey, in the new function
of promulga " Presidential edicts, sign.
eil by himse. .: pdinvolying the exercise
of the Legis te, the Judicial, and the
Executive p rs.
One of th' resolves is in these woids:
" Resolved, at Congress has, by the
Constitution, wer to abolish slavery in
the Territoliairf the United States."
Now, as tl"a is no Territory in the
Union which ontains slaves, except Flor
'ida, it is ell Ilint this resolve is directed
against that i.erritory alone; and the in.
dividual nnatW both soft and green who
could suppohat the practical and busi

Masstchust old etnploy itself in pas

this resolve political abstraction to be
followed hy 'inperation-let him read the
following re vhich was adopted by
the same G Ial Xssembly at the same
Web-ster, the present de facto President of
the United -States, has taken her stand
against the admission of Florida as a slave
State; and what have the southern States
yet done to counteract this very hostile
movement? Nothing! literally nothing!
or, worse. Some of them have contribut
ed to restore the very party in power whose
first aim is, was, and will be, to cripple
and weaken'the south.
The Florida war may no* 'be consider
ed as finished, antid the contest must begin
between the Abolitionists and the south.
The Abolitionists dictated the Massachu
setts resolves; they mean to oppose the
admission of Florida; their designsare now
known, and the policy of the present ad
mintistration.coincides with their designs.
Florida has had a petition for some years
before Congress for amission into the
Union; that petition must soon be acted
upon. To come in as one State, with a
provision for a seconol, east of ihe Suwan
nee, is the wish of the people, and the true
policy of all the friends of the Union; and
the sooner the question is tried in Congress,
and the Abolitiunists and Cabinct made to
showv their hands, the better.
From the Cnarleston Mercury.
The New York Herald says-" ini eve
ry aspect in which it is capable of being
vie'wed, we cannot resist the conclusion
that the death of Gen. HartsoN may lie
productive of fatal consequences to the
Whig party. If there should not be the
most candid co-operation between the Ex
ecutive, the Cabinet, and the party in Cen
gress, their measures must fail, and the
party be disbanded and overthrown."
The Philadelphia Correspondent of the
same paper says:
Trhe Whig party already show much
uneasiness in consequence of Mir. Tyler's
taking upon himselfthe office of Presidetit.
The game practiced during the election
canvass, of "no more disclosures for the
public eye," is beginning to recoil upon
them, and my word for it, they mnay well
fear the wvorst consequences. The hope
so fondly indulged of establishing a tnatioi
al bank, a high tariff, and the hundred and
otie extravagances-atietidan't ipon them,
is now fairly blown to the wintds-the
Webster influence is et an end. John
Tyler is a Virginian; a .man possessing of
principles which he dare avow, and whicht
he is able to maintain--avd those princi
p)1es are known to be the very antipodes
of those entertained by Daniel Webster.
Our Whigs are sadly disdomfitted, and
hundreds of them do not care to conceal
their chagrin and mortification.
It is not dillicolt I think to forese-e the
end of all this. Tyler is as competent,
and possessing as great claims for the Pres
idency as does Henry Clay, and if he evin
cess ambition it may be attributed more to
his prudence thatnto his desire to mount
the highest round in the ladder of fame. Is
it to be supposed, that he will prefer to ad
vance another's interest to his own ? Will
lie not rather apply the theatns wvhich
chance has thrown into his hands to his
own ..,atennmemt? Atnid if he ,ocs. wa.,
will the friends of Mr. Clay do ? Why,
the very thing that is nurnured here
assail'his reputation, and oppose his mea
sures; and thus make him the candidate
of the great.democratic party of the Union,
whether he will or no. And there vill
be found in him nothing, or at least but
little that is inconsistent in his occupying
such a position before the country, for he
has ever 'been an unwavering States'
Rights democrat, and a rigid adherent to
the principles. inculcated by .efferson.
There is nothing in all his lire that squints
towards a hank or a tariff, nor can he ever
be induced to sanction either. ;Change
fronts is the next movement.
Enernous Wealih.-The celebrated
Countess Branitskaythe nisce of Potemp
kin, died lately on 'her estate of Biala-Cer
kiew, in'he 8bib 'year of her dge. She
had been a favorite of the Ernpiress Cath
arine, on which account the Emperor Al
exander always treated her .witlh the ut
most attention and respect, addressing her
by the'hame of matuska, or mother. Hie
never met her vithout kissing her hand, and
he would stand in her 'presence until she
bade him beated. 'The Countess has left an
immense fortune, which will pa'ily be in
herited hy Count Woronzow, her son-in
law. A sum of one million sterling in
specie Was found in her chateau; she had
sixty millions of roubles lodged in the bank
of Russia, and on her estates were one
hundred nnd thirty thousand peasants or
slaves. The countess, in her life time,
made money in every way; she lent it
out in mortgages, and there are very few
landed proprietors in the empire who are
not her debtors. She discounted bills,
solt gold, disposed herself of the immense
produce of her lands; and it is even said
that havin visited France several years
since, and finding human hair so valuable
in that country, she had, on her return to
Russia, caused the heads of all her female
slaves to be shaved, and shipped a cargo
orcherenurrb to France, whete they fetch
ed a handsome return. Her caisse was
al ways escorteil by thirty or forty Cossacks,
and her relittation for wealth was so gener

paratus to whip the infant when it cries;
and .another contrivance whereby 'the child

It is to be manufactured ofthe most rare

It will be so constructed as to rock, feed

N1Iarch of Mfind.-An honest farm'er in
the state of Pennsylvania married a M1iss
from a fashionable boarding school, for his
second wife. He was struck dumb with
her eloquence, and gnped with wonder at
his wife's learning.
"You may (said he) bore a hole throug'h

" Life " in an Oyster.-The lig do!- in
an oyster contains incredible multitudes of
small embryos, coveretd with small shells,
perfecctly transparent, swimming mdimbly
about. One hundred anti twenty of those
in a row would extend one inch. lBesides
these young oysters, the liquor c'ontains a
great variety of anirmalenhe, 'live lhundred
titmes less in size, which emnit phosphoric
light. The list of inhabitants however,
do not conclude hei-e, for besides the last
tmeniloned there dre three glistinct species
of worm, forund in oysters half an inch in
length, whicli shine like'the glow ivorm.

An e.rtraordinary Revelation.-The Neti
York Courier des Estats Unis, a French
Journal published in New York, has the
" At a recent bail during the carnival I1
Paris, a chargeter in mask asserted 'that
the reraaius ofNapoleon had been spirited
away frorm the custody of the French, and
those of an English corporal substituted in
their place, 'He offered, indeed, to prove
by indiibitaible 'evidence, that t'he body of
the ' martyr of St. Helena' was now in fadt
at Westmirister, while the corporal afore
said was reposing in state at the Invalides."
Q5lce Beggars.-The Baltimore Argus,
of the 31st uit. says: "Daqiel Webster
was in Philadelphia on Sunday last, and
his Hotel was beseiged by th'e office beg

nighthe started out on a visit in a carriage,
but such was the pressing friendship of
these parasites, that thef absolutely. stop.

the *hdrses, jumped into. the harness, and
absolutely dragged him down towards the
Custom House. The coachman did not
discover the fact until he began to " whip
tip" his steeds, when their roars discovered
their asinine character."
The Honey Bee.-This bee, when col
lecting the pollen of flowers, which consti
tutes the "bee bread," never passes froth
one kind of flower to another, as has been
supposed. If it first light upon a honey
suckle, it continues to collect from its flow
er until it has loaded its thighs with as
much as it can carry away. The hee is
governed in this by an instinct that makes
it a co-laborer in the ordinary work of re
productiveness. The pollen, or fructifying
dust, is carried from flower to flower of the
same species, and thus the bee aids the
operation of dature by distributing the pol
len, necessary to the fruitfulness of plants.
If the bee. were to. pass from a clover blos
som, with the pollen adhering to its body,
and light upon a honey suckle. would pro
