THE WISH. 1
Oh 1 may it be at eve's
Still hour when I die!
When through the rustling leaves.
Is borne no sigh. ,
Willi nnmn O lot mft not
f ? IVM v J -ww (
Be to the sad grave borne ! i
Let but otic faithful heart,
Over me mourn.
Plant not near my lone tomb,
The mournful Cypress tree,
Let not a shade ol gloom
Wave over me.
Still let the wild bird sing,
And still the sweet briar wave,
With each returning spring,
Around my grave.
Abbeville C. H. Eva.
(FOit TIIE BANNER.)
Like the metiors flash,
As onward they dash
Swift thro' the sky,
And e're we can see.
What they may be,
In darkness die:
Such is man's life,
With sorrow most rife,
His race is soon run ;
And scarce e're we know.
His place here below,
His gaol too is won.
O'er man in his grave,
Earth's storms may rave,
They disturb not his sleep ;
But cold as the stone,
That tells he is gone,
His silence is endless and deep.
Since life then is so brief,
And filled up with grief,
Why should we stay :
And linger on here,
Year after year,
When Heaven invites us away?
Oh! let us then live,
That each may give,
Of his stewardship here ;
An account to secure,
A seat with the pure,
In Heaven's own sphere.
Santa Fe.?This having become a
place of interest in the public eye, since
Gen. Kearney's expedition to it, we extract
from Mr. Gregg's " Commerce of
the Prairies" a description of the town and
its neighborhood. Mr. Gregg made several
trading expeditons from Missouri
to Santa Fe, and became well acquainted
with the place, as well as with the
" Santa Fe, the capital of New Mexico,
is the otVy town of any importance
in the province. We sometimes find it
written Santa Fe de San Francisco,
(Holy Faith of St. Francis,) the latter
being the patron or tutelary saint. Like
most of the towns in this section of country,
it occupies the site of an ancient
Pueblo or Indian village, whose race
has hpftn ovlincl fnr n m-oni ?
_ *v? t? vuv iiidiiy yuaio.
Its situation is 12 or 15 miles east of the
Rio del Norte, at the Western base of
a snow clad mountain, upon a beautiiul
stream of small mill power size, which
ripples down in icy cascades, and joins
the river some 20 miles to the suoth westward.
The population of the city itself
but little exceeds three thousand : yet,
including several surrounding villages
which are embraced in its corporate jurisdiction,
it amounts to near six thousand
" The town is very irregular laid out,
and most of the streets are little better
than common high-ways, traversing
scattered settlements. whi/?w oro I

to supply the inLabitanis with grain
The only attempt at any thing like architectural
compactness and precision
consists in four tiers of buildings, whose
fronts are shaded with a fringe of portales
or corredores of the rudest possible
description. They stand around the
public square*, and comprise the Governor's
house, the custom house, the barracks,
the Casa Consistorial of the Alcaldes, 1

residences, as well as most of the
