THE CHAMBER OF THE DYING.
'Tis holy, when the morning peeps
Softly through the shadowy night.
When nature gems of beauty weeps.
And the bright world so gently sleeps
Hushed in its pomp and might.
'Tis holy. in that hour of eve,
When twilight's robe is spread,
When thought mnay solemn visions weave,
And care and pain and sorrow leave,
Till all but peace hath fled.
'Tis holy, when the glistening rays
Jt many a silent star
Gleams on that sad and yeatning gaze,
That up to Heaven its prayer would raise,
And send its dream afar.
'Tis holy. whet the choral song.
Fills with.deep tones the air,
When awed and hushed, the gathering tbironu
Still in the spitit's depth prolong,
The mighty voice of prayer.
'Tis holy, when loud thunders roar,
Atid lightiting flashes round,
When ocean breaks npon the shore,
And heavy clouds the Heaven's rush b'er,
And winds send forth deep sound.
Bot holier e'en than these, the shrine,
Where low the loved is lying;
Where glimmering of a love divine,
Through pain and sorrow softly shine,
The chamber of the dying.
There-Goil is there. lie calls his own,
I n voice so gently mild,
A few brief hours and to [His throne.
Whete Saints and Angels dwell alone,
He calls his favored child.
'Tis on an Angel that we gaze,
A resident of Henven.
Shrouded awhile in misty haze,
As morning veils her glowing rays,
Ear night, afar is driven.
'Tis holy! holy thus to rest,
Beside a sjgrit flying ;
Though an.. t msh fills the watchers breast,
Yet Ce'en to themii-'tis holiest,
The chamnber of the dying!

Poverty is, except where there is an
actual want of food and rairmetnt, a thing

A traveller w bo spent some tme in Tur

even more beautiful than Sterne's cele

-two aug-els, one on his right shotilder and
one on his left. When he does anything
good. the angel on his right shouldjer writes
it down, and seals ii; hecause what is once
well done, is done foreyer. When he does
evil, the angel upon his left shoulder writes
it down, liut does not seal it. He wait,
till midnight. If before that time the man
bo'vs downi his head and e.xclaims, -'bra
clous Allah' I have sinned-forgive mes."
the angel rubs i out; but if not, at tnid
night he seals iW ud the angel upon the

Ohio. -iThe resulutions introduced into
the Legislature of Oiiio, a tbdit time since,
calling upon its Representatives in Can
gress to use their endeavors to bring to a
close ihe pending negofiations in relation
to the Oregon territory, and to protest
against yielding- up any part of it to Great
Britain, have beed passed in both House?.
From the Auguia -rashinglonman.
The extract from Mr. Pierponf deserves
th; seriotb considerqtion of every mani who
really desires th'e prosperity of Augusta.
In vain will we manufaeture, and econo
mise in otner respects, wlil our children
and servants are taught to wasti the fruits
of our toil and care in i lie and ruinous
dissipatiti. TII vain nIa we hope ror
prospOrity- while nursih'i bur iosofI, a
tire that coosumnes all the elements of pros
perity. In vain we expect the blessing of
heaven, while this patronized sink of pol.
lution shows that we do not deserve it.
Sin is a disgrace to any nation?-open
and legalized intemperance will prove ihe
ruin of any community!
Besides the contitded waste of the pro
fits of lahbr resulting f'rotn groo selling and
buying, the enconragemelt given to itin
erant play-actors and circus riders, tends
greatly to drain our resources, and also to
demoralize our people.-Ntht after night
money is thrown away, and Physical and
mental eneigy expended; in atendauce
upon the vitiating exhibitions of men, ioo
lazy to work. ar.d too ignorant to instruct.
Ought it to surprise us that the times are
hard?-Can men work in the day who
spend the night in dissipation? 'Can they
relish realities, who depend upon fictions
for excitement? Can the money given to
vagrants, remain to bless the city? Hard
times! They are indeed hard. but they
will lie much worse, unless the virtuous
arise in tlOo m;tjesty of virtue, and say to
the vicious. "Titese things shall no 1,nger
lut it may be asked, how can the virtu
ens arrest the progress of vice? We an
swer-by eforcing the laws agai aut all
vagrantts and grog sellers. Let them only
resolve and act togeiher. and the work is
done. If existing laws are inefficient, let
the city authorities make thetm stronger.
The tales for shows may be so increased
as to drive from amonig us*he traffickers in
such degrading wares. The penaltibs for
selling poison to the unsuspecting citizens
may be miade more exemplary..
Th~fere is one cheering ray of light break
ing ain upon us through the dark clouds of
commercial adversity-it is, that hard
n ecessity will insure the reformation pro
posed, even if our pleadings fail. ,Cash
alone will command sensual gratificationis
and as this article will he wanting,our grog
buyers anid night revellers, will be comt
pelledJ to call a halt. It would be miuch
mare noble to do it from choice, but good
will come of it, let the cause be what it
may. When this is done, the germ of
prosperity will be founditi Augusta--until
theti no change can do more than enlarge
the meatns of those. who waste them on
unworthy objects, and spend more at nigh:
than all the industrious make during the
day. How they get it we know not. but
we know the city looses it! The city has
its debit and credit accounts, and its bal
ance sheet mtust always ezjihii the amount
of its ext ravagjance.

Suppose a man should ,come intoi your

mad dogs. And suppose that this man
every day as your children bould pass by
his kennel on their way to school should
let out one or two of his mad dogs to bite
your little children-.andi every day your
little ones shoud be dying here in Concord,
with the hydrophobia ! How long would
it take to wake up an interest here to abol
jsh that mnd dog knnnel ? You otjni

Neddy Brown: -living's a miserable piece

said Brown, -if I aint getting the where

'What's the matter, neighbor ?' said a
man with a badge.
'I'm dizzy-got the where-to-go iii my

'If it wasn't- that I'm troubled in my

'Stand aside !' roared Brown. 'Here

the decline and fall of the Roman Empire.
"I'm down, and it's all up.' sighed lie,

My knees are stuv' in, and I can't tell
