THE HEART'S GUESTS.
When age has cast its shadows
O'er life's declining way,
When evening twilight gathers
Round our retiring day,

On the dim and shadowy past,
In the heart's silent chamber
The guests will gather fast;
Guests that in youth we cherished
Shall come to us once more,
And we shall hold communion
As in the days before.
They may be dark and sombre,
They may be bright and fair,
But the heart will have its chamber
And the guests will gather there.
IIow shall it be, my sisters,
Who shall hn our hnart's ornnsts?
How shall it be my brothers,
When life's shadow on us rests?
Shall we not mid the silence
Hear voices sweet and low,
Speak the old familiar language,
The words of long ago ?
Shall we not see dear faces
Sweet smiling as of old ;
Till the mists of that lone chamber
Are sunset clouds of old'?
When age has cast its shadows
O'er life's declining way,
And evening twilight gathers
Round our retiring.
From the Southern Patriot.
We do not wonder that the memorable
battle of Palo Alto, .and
Resaca de la Palma, have excited
the utmost attention, and a hisrh
degree of admiration, abroad. We
anticipated most of the encomiums
which have been bestowed on our
troops for their daring and heroic
actions on the eight and ninth of
May, We felt confident that a
nation like England, one of the
distinguishing characteristics of
whose people is bravery, would
appreciate and admire the ieats of
prowess performed by our gallant
men. We felt confident too that

tone in which they were written,
this good sense and excellent
judgement which characterized
and distinguished them, all have
received at the hands of the English,
a degree of appreciation honorable
to them, and flattering to
Some of our exchange papers
have been informed by passengers
who came over in the Britannia,
tnat tne details 01 ootn oatties
were read in Englad, with a degree
of interest approaching to enthusiasm
; and in confirmation of
what we have written above we
append the following article from
the London Morning chronicle.
" Nil admirari.?Such is the
motto of Great Britain in respect
to the great deeds of Americ i.
She views them coldly, quietly,
and without either wonder or
emotion. She is as little surprised
at their occurrence as the mathe-;

No man in England suggests even
a second interpretation of them,
nor cares about refining upon
their natural significations. We
admit, without reservation, that,
they exhibit some important facts,

of the soldiers, the considerate

any exception that we take to his

deserve a triumph, and Captain
Ringgold the honors of an ovation.
They have fought well, and kept
up a character which was before
high enough to be independent of
either bravado or exa ggeration.
More than that, they have just
done what we expected, and what
we foretold they would do. Who

the weakness of the other.

admitted through the whole

; by the Gael and Welshman,
as well as the consanguineous
St. Juan D'Ulloa.?In reference
to the statement published
yesterday, the N. Y. Journal of
Commerce remarks as follows :?
" In our opinion, it would ?e all
but a meracle if the American
licet now in the Gulf, even if th^y
were all concentrated, (which
they cannot be without int'-rmitting
the blockade of the other
ports,) should capture the fortress

is at every point. 1 ne wnoie
squadron does not mount as many
guns as the fortress; and would
have to present wooden walls
against walls of stone. No; if
Ulloa is to be bombarded, (and
we don't see why it should be at
present,) let at least three ships of
the line, ot the heaviest metal,
join the squadron before the attempt
is made. Otherwise we
shall expect a failure. Our tara
naturally think they can do as
much as the French, with an equal
number of guns : and so they can,
and more besides. But four times

A Washington letter in the New
York journai of Commerce, speaking
of the Indians at present in
Washington says ::?
On Wednesday they visited for
the first time, the Capitol, remained
for a short time in the Galleries
of the Senate and House of Representatives,
beheld with wonder
the paintings and statuary, and
more than everything besides were
delighted with the colored prints
in the Library from Mr. Catlin's
portraits and scenes of Indian Life,
As they gazed upon the ttuualo
hunts, upon the groups of wild
horses and wolves, and upon the
various Indian warriors in their
own costumes, and aimed the
scenes of their own distant homes,
they could not restrain their emotions,
and for the first time men,
women, and even the youths present,
fell into an animated conver
sation, ^pointing out to each other
what most interested them in the
different, groups,) and for the moment
seemed restored to the wild
prairies or hills of Texas. They
^were much pleased, not only with
the large paintings in the otunda,
but also with the portraits of General
Jackson, the President, and
other distinguished persons by
Mr. Healy. Among them is an
admirable picture of General Houston
himself, at which they laugh<
American Newspapers at Matamoras.?A
weekly paper has been
commenced at Matamoras b> H.
ivici^eoa, entitled " uepuoiic ol
the Rio Grande and Frend of the

printed both in English and Spanish.
The purpose is to convince
the people of Tamaulipas. Coahulia,
New Leon and Chihuahua, of
the futility of resisting American
arms and to throw upon ihe Administration
of Paredes the responsibility
of the war. A separation
of the Departments nam d

of Mexico, is the distinct aim
of this new paper.
