MELANCHOLY.-Melancholy has been
impersonated by numerous writers us a
tall, sad, female with wo-worn visage,
drooping eye-lids, aud dreamy, despond?
ing aspect. No woudor this mentnl
malady, so grievous in ?ls influence on
tho human mind, should bo thus repre?
sented by prophet seers, as poets ure
not inaptly called. We duro aver that
most of those subject to her depressing
iufluonco, describe her best. Both Cow?
per and Kirke White (espeaially the
latter) paint uer in doleful colors. Me?
lancholy is somethiug quito distinct from
that decent seriousness common to many
temperaments, aud is often the result
of ill-health or disappointed hopo. In
either case, though sneered at by the
unreflecting, sober reasoners and gener?
ous thiukors regard those ovor-borno by
her sombro presonco with pity aud sym?
pathy, rather than with any more iguo
blo and moro reprehensible feeling.
It were but benevolent, kind uud
charitable to win her victims, if possi?
ble, through cheerful representations of
lifo, and arts known to uflection, v.di.cli
ever seeks the good of those who sharo
it. Bodily diseaso is afflictive, aud men?
tal butlering even moro so. How ten?
derly, then, should unfortunates bo
treated who writhe under the latter
malady! If aggravated by harshness, iu
their eiiso, fearful results sometimes en
cue, aud those heartless enough to deal
radely with melancholy people see rea?
son in tho end, to ?epent bitterly of
such a course- of conduct. Doubtless n
cheerful temper should be cultivated,
moro especially where tho natural dis?
position inclines one to gloomy views
Yet it is not perhaps the fault of hy
pocondriaos, even if they are not able to
cultivate this desirable state of mind.
It has been asserted, with whut truth wt
cannot take on us to determine, thal
some specios of derangement pertains
to the mind of every mau-not except
ing tbe most exalted in intellect. A
natural despondency muy be this ver^
weakness. Is it uot cruel, then, to ug
gr?vate an evil which common httmanitj
should teach us to ameliorate, by gen th
and loving means?
We are making no apology for meian
oboly people, their own hopeless malady
being their best defence. We aro ooh
asking charity for tho mentally diseased
nevertheless, is it incumbent on such t<
strive manfully with this gorgon, wh<
should bo, if possible, driven from tin
mind, lest a host of horrors follow in he
dismal train. Religion should inspin
pleasing contemplation, not only of thi
life, but of that which is to come.
If benevolence bo the main uttribub
of Deity, couched under tho attractive
uame of Love, which all his creature
must know, nod all nature shows is true
then have wo cause, not only for lind ties
gratitude, but for a cheerful tempei
Like birds of dawn, wo should sing ii
sun-light, not us the evil-omened ow
hoots, covered with melancholy darknes
nt noon-day. If not for our sake, c
least in consideration of those uronm
us, wo aro best employed (supposiu
melancholy our enemy) whou lightiuj
manfully against her insidious in road t
Above all, let tho Christian, knowiu
himself an heir of immortality, lookin
away from transitory scenes, amidst ad
verse aud troublous existence, whe
'storms revel and sun-light is withdrawr.
for that better country whero no rudel
milling blast mars pleasant fields, an

The range of quotations for Americt

A Coon Timur.-Tba audacity, cool?
ness and readiness of aome thieves, is
most astounding. Only a few ovoniugo
since., a boarder at one of tbe fnshioun
ble boarding bouses i u Twenty-first stree!
on bis way to bis room from dinner, met
a well-dressed young man at tbe foot of
tbe hall stairs, with several coats on his
arm. "Where aro you going with this
property?" inquired the unsophisticated
boarder. "To be cleaned," readily re?
sponds the thief. "So here, my dear
fellow," observed the boarder, "I have a
oout here that should be cleaned. When
can yon give it to mo?" "To-morrow,"
promptly answered tbe bogus clotbeB
clonuer. "Be B?ro and hiing it back to?
morrow," remarked tho verdant boarder,
as he stripped off his overcoat and bund?
ed it to the thief, who walked off with
his plunder, in a short time after, it
?vas discovered that the house was rob?
bed, nud during the evening it dawned
on tho benighted mind of the simple?
minded boarder thnt tho well-dressed
individual he met on the stairs and car?
ried oil' his coat, was not a clothes
clcanor, but an out-and-out thief.
