PERSIAN LOVE SONG.
Amnbition is the ripened pear,
And friemiehi'p is the vine
Which even rbund a ruin will
Its clinging tendrils twine.
but love is like a luscious peach
A touek its bloon destroys ;
As beautiful its blushing cheer,
As sweet its lasted joys.
But ever in its inmost heart
A poison lies concealed :
And all its sweetness faded away
When Jealousy's revealed.
And woman often breaks her teeth
Against. this heart. of stone,
And, disappoiuted. finds in Lovo
But bitterness alone.
Oh, then. beware! go not too far,
Or Jealousy you'll meet;
Just brush the bloom and taste the fruit,
If you would find Love sweet.

as$ an 01pon oneC. Since writing that
p)aragrap)h the Bait imoro Sun, of Srat
urday'hlas ome to hand, in which pa
per we find a report of a decision of
Judge Garey's in the Court of Comn
mon01 Pleas, upon this v'ery point.
"Bu it is not admitted that thme net
did not take effect exeept "ats to the
appointurent of thme officers create1T
thereby and tihe paromulgation of rules
and general ordors" until the lat day
of .June, 1868; but to the contrary it
wvill 1be found that the most importanlt
rights anrd liabilities devolve upon
partfas inmmediately after thme passago
of the act ; (see sections 23, 27, 29.
89, and 44]-for the right to compel
a dlebtor inte involuntary bannkruptoy
--the disaflowance of preferences, or
of a discharge to a bankrupt and the
right to have him punished for ii
fraud upon his creditors. All thiere
rights and1 disabilities, accrue as welli
before tihe 1st day of .Juno as after
vrards,and are the vital points an.!
mattter's of the law. I therefore conI
elude that tihe act became a law in
March, and that by the 50th sect ion.
there was only a suspension of tho re -
medies, that is of poti'tions pr other'i
procoodings under Aho act., so thrt
"they should not be fle d, received, et
comntneoed'* before the 1st day e'l
