The light at home! how bright it beams
When venturing shades around us fall;
And froth the lattice far it gleams,
To love, and rest and comfort call.
When wearied with the toils of day,
And strife for glory, gold or fame,
How sweet to seek the quiet way,
Where loving lips will lisp ouir name
Around the light at home.
When through the dark and stormy night,
The wayward wanderer homeward hies ;
How cheering is that twinkling light,
Which through the forest gloom he spies.
It is the light at home; he feels
That loving hearts will greet him there,
. And softly through his bosom steals
The joy and love that banish care
Around the light at home.
The light.at home! whene'er at last
It greets the seaman through 'he storm:
He feels no more the chilling. blast~
That beats upon his manly form.
Long years upon the sea have fled,
Since Mary gave her parting kiss,
But the t, ars which then she shed
Will now be paid with rapturous bliss,
Around the light at home.
The light at home! how still and sweet
It peeps from yonder cottage door
The weary laborer to greet
When the rough toils of day are 'Ar.
Sad is the soul that does not know
The blessings that the beams impart,
The cheerful hopes and joys that flow,
And lighten up the heaviest heart
Around the light at home.

her finger, tore otT the ring and pawned IL fomr

despair, she drank, and together we wallowed in
the gutter. P'enni,e.s, we begged our way from
Vermoint to thts city. liere we hired a small
cellar, in a daxrk and disma.ul street, and sent our
children out to beg. Many a wveary day we spent
in that dreary cellkr, thiile our childrctt were
wadeiigit the stetbegging for teir drun

childrt n went out to big, and from that hour to
this, I have not seen them. Withouut foiod or
fire, I have clung to the dismal aboide. till hun

My degraded wife lhas been sent to lBlackwell's

In M---, in the year 1829, 1 became acquaint- b
ed with a young man who was known as a
danciog master. le was very polite, and paid
marked respect to religious persons, when in
their company. le was tile son of religious I
parents in one of the Northern States, but had. 6
forsaken the God of his fathers; and his man- 11
ner of living was free, as might be expected ti
from his calling.
A few nionths after I became acquainted with 0
him. he was taken ill, though it was supposed
not dangerously. But at the end of about ten
dayi he tuok suddenly under the elTects of n
medicine, owing, as I wa.I told, to his system
being impaired by dissipa:nn. In this state I d
was called to see him, about fifteen ninutes be
fore his death. After speaking tenderly to him d
of faith in Chri-t, to which he seemed to be a
stranger, I offered prayer for him at his own re- r
quest. Immediately after this he pointed to his
violin. that lay near his bed, and said to me,
-1Burn that, for it has been the cause qf my
ruin." He spoke no more to any pelson in the I
room; but, looking towards heaven, lie exclaim- ri
ed sever:l times even as long as he could speak. a
Is there no me1rcy for me?" and died as the I
words died away on) his lips. The suddenness 0
of this young nan's death--for he had no ap- a
prehension of its apiroacli till about the time I
was called to see him-the c.ndition in which I
he died, ilte reileration of the words, " Is there h
no mercy for me ?" the peculiar indescribable
tone with which they were uttered, made an ,
iapression on my mind that will never be eflTc e.

And yet some profelssedly religious people
think the dancing m:aster quite a proper person

nitted to a view of the doom of such fjivolous
and trifling charA-ters. they would soon change
their opinions. It is to be feared that many of Ci

PLUCK TMB BEAM OUT OF YOUR OWN EYE.
Philanthopy is the pretence under which Brit
ish intermeddlers profess to sympathize with i
the mad schemes o( abolitionism in the United i
States. How baseless is such a pretence is fully I
demonstrated by the Irish census tables just pub- i
lished. Think of twenty-one thousand human i
beings perishing from starvation in one year in I
Ireland, and then think of the amazing hypocri- I
sy which induces British philanthropists to mourn i
over the imaginary sufferings of the well-fed,
well.elnd, and contented slaves in the southern I
States. We copy from the Albany Atlas and i
"AN APPEALING F4CT I-The Irish census ta- <
bles just publish- d report that in one year there <
were 21,775 deaths from starvation ! The edi- I
tor of the Meical Times, eommenting upon 1
this app-illing statement, says; u The figure z
must be far short of the truth. The harrowing I
details given in the body of the report leave no
doubt that multitudes perished by the wayside i
and- in the clieerless Irish hovel, whom neither (
policemen nor coroner's inquest ever took note c
"These victims of starvation were the small t
tenants and cottiers who were thrgit from their i
homesundera system of etiction like that which t
the Duchess of'Southerland has recently put in. t
to force. and they have been left to die on the v
wayside. There has been going on in Ireland t
of late years a social and property revolution, t
by which the lit tle l'rms and holdings have been I
swept away, and the country turned into large (
forms, ivorked by machinery and by hired labor. F
"The poor tenets have no where to go, for c
there is no system of poor-houses in Ireland v
such as there is in England, and these poor e
creatures, arer begging from door to door on 8
a weary round, die in the ditches at the wayside. a
" At this very tin a British fleet is hovering I
off'the const of Naples, pretending to find a just f
cause of war in the conduct of its King to his P
subjects. But were the lazzaroni of Naples the e
victims of a policy as cruel as that of England, li
King Bomba would not reign a day.
"'The press and the people of England howl I
over the wickedness of American slavery. Did n
the reenrd of American slavery show over 20,000 p
victims of starvation in a year, a servile insur- n
reetion woild terminate it forever.
" England is the hendquarters of mock phil.
anthropy and cant. She is ever arraigning the t
nations of the earth before her, and condemning t1
them. But it is in order to divert attention from
her own wounds that she is thus ever pointing b

SPEECH OF HON. . . MOSES.
At a mass meeting in Atlanta, on Thursday
vening, the 16th inst., of which we have already
nade mention, an incident occured which called
:o n conspicuous position-a young man, a native
>f Charleston, but who has for some time been
ichieving distinction in.the West. Mr. James
U. Calhoun addressed the meeting; behind
im was a portrait of Washington, and when he
:losed his address which was a short and good
>ne, the assembly gave three cheers for South
,arolina, and R. G. Moses, Esq., being recog
uised in the crowd, was called out. Those who
inve ever heard him will not need to be remind.
-d of his stirring eloquence. Few men in this
:untry are so eloquent when the occasion hap.
>ens t inspire him. We have been furnished
vith the following report of his remarks, but
ire assured that it conveys but little of what
eally thri.led his hearers for about half an hour:
I must thank you for the cheers you have
,iven to South Carolina; not because South
arolina requires this enthusiastic endorsement
f her course to do her honor, but because it Is
n indication that the spirit of Georgia is right
pon the Southern question! lam not unmind
ul of the fact, that in 1850, when popular ora.
ors were endeavoring to force the people to bow
heir n-eks to the yoke of submiesion, that di.
ision of South Carolina was "the harp of a
ousand strings" on which they played, and
hat Georgians gave a responsive echo to the
ey note. With this fact before me, as a South
arolinian, I cannot but acknowledge the comd
liment paid to her to-night. When, upon the
onclusion of Mr. Calhoun's speech, I saw this
ast multitude rise to their feet and give three
heers for South Carolina, it convinces me that
he is derided, only, when the people are to be
Dhooind into submission, and that when the
onl of honor is to be reached by a manly de
.nee of Southern rights, South Carolina is
ointed to as a bright example worthy of your
mulation! For this reason, as a South Caro.
nian, I congratulate myself on the enthusias
ie reception which you have given to her son.
Ls far.as that gallant State is concerned, she
eeds the endorsement of no people. Your
raises cannot elevate her - your detraction can
ot lower her; she has her title deeds to fame
raced in the blood of the revolution; her soil
a cemetery of martyrs; there is but.one State
iat can rival her In her claims to national grati
ade, and that is old Virginia.
They are alike, too, in this. That you may
lot out the history of each, reserving a single
age, and they ivill yet have enough of glory
ft to entitle them to the brightest niche in the
mple of American fame. Virginia, because
lie was the birth place of Washington, the Fa.

GooD SENsE.-Good sense, or what isu1aially

It teaches a man in the firt place that two el.
bows are highly inconvenient infie world; and,
in the second,-that the fewer people yuu JoAsti
on the road of life the greater your chance of
success among men or women. It is not ne
cessary that a common sense man need bi'a.
unimaginative one; but it is necessary that hi.
imagination should be well regulated. Good
taste springs from good sense, because.the latter
enables a man to understand at all times pre

under the circumstances of his situation. Good
