Q-The following poem, written bjr young En
glish poetess, is taken from the Lady' Book for
BT MISS ELI I A COOK.
Land of the W'el ! though pawing brief
The record of thine ago.
Thou hast a name lhat darken all
rtn history's wide pige ;
Let all the bias' of Fame ring out
Thine shall be loudest far,
Let others boost their satellite
Thou hast the plnnet rtt',
Thou hast a name who e characters,
Of high shall ne'er depart,
Tisatxmpod upon the dullest brain,
And warms the elou.le-t heart ;
A war-cry fit for any land
Whoie freedom's to be won
Land of the Wert, it at inds alone
It is thy Washington.
Rome had its Csnar, groal and brave-;
But stain was on hi width
He lived the heartless conqueror,
And died the tyrant' death l
France had its Eagle, but his wings,
Though lofty they mit;ht soar,
Were spread in false emhiliou' fl'glit,
And dripped in murder's gore.
Those hero gods, whose mighty away
Would fain have cha:ned the wave.
Who flashed their blades with tiger zeal
To make a work! of slave
Who, though their kindied barred the path,
Slill fire ly waded on,
Oh ! wh re shall le thi ir glory by
The aide of Washing! -n.
He fought, but not wilh love of strife
He struck but to defend ;
Ard ere he turned a people' foe.
He sought to he a friend ;
He strove to keep his country's right
By reason's gentle word,
And sighed when fell i justice threw
The challenge sword to sword.
He stood tho firm, the calm, the wie,
The pa' ri t and s.tge ;
He showed no deep avenging halo,
No burst of despot rage ;
He stood for L'beity and Truth,
And dauntlesaly led on.
Till shouts of victory camo firth
The name of Washington.
No car of triumph bo'e him through .
A city filled with grief.
No groaning captives at the wheels
Proclaimed him vicior chit f;
He broke the gyves of slavery
With strong and high disdain,
And cast no sceptre from the link
When he had broke the chain.
He saved his land, but did not lay
His soldier tr ippings down,
To chango them f.tr a regit v. st.
And d -n a kingly crown ;
Fame was too earnest in hr j y
Too proud of such a son
To let a robe and title nin-k
Hor noble Washmgton.
England, my heart is truly thine
My loved my native e.tith ;
The land that holds a mother's grave
And gave that mother birth.
Oh! keenly sad would ba the fate
That thrust me fiom thy shore,
Ard f.iltiring my breath, that tithed,
Farewell for ever more V
Dut did I meet such adverse lot,
I would not seek to dwell,
Where olden hero wrought the d.cdi
For Home.' song to tel1;
Away thou gallant ship! I'dc y,
And bear me swift 'y on,
Bui hear me from my own fair IjnJ
To that of Washington !

M. Thiers is a small mm, wi'h rather an iffomi
nate voice and look, but n.itwilht-tand ng he is a man
of great rapacity. He is whM we cM a self m ide
man. He ha written the best work on the French
revolution, be baa been tho most powerful writer
for the press in France, he hi made capital and
effective speeches in the chamber of Deputies, he is
now prime minister ; and lore than 20 years ago he
waa poor and unknown, inheriting nothing but po
verty and disgrace, living in otxure lodging", and
not knowing from day to day when or how he was
to gi t a dinner. In April next M. Thiers will be
forty four years of age, and in lees than h df that
number of year he has built himself a naie, and
developed a character that may be envied by many
an older and bolter man. His father woe lock
smith, and at eighteen (he son wa entered as a
law student, and applied himself with alacii'y and
perseverance to the study of literatute, philosophy
and history, identifying himself with the party of
the peiple, and enlisting himself on the a'de of the
revolutionists His talents were great, his writing
forcible. He wtole a theme for the prizi of the
Academy of Air, which, al hough acknowledged
the bent, was in consequence of coming frm him
rejected, and the decision of the prize was postpo
ned to another year. In the meantime a new com
petitor for the prize appeared, who sent his manu
script from Paris. The production ecl'psrd all o
thera, and was pronounced successful, when lo I on
opening the sealed a.ket containi-g the author's
name, who should it be but tho lit1 Ic jacobin Thiers.
He had written an entire new treat so, and having
got a friend to copy it nd put it into the post ollice
at Paris it had unexpected by the learned members
of the Aeadamy, gained lor him the prize.
Having been admitted to the bar of Alt he did
n t succeed, because he was known as the po r son
of a oor man, and he concluded to come to Paris
to seek his fortune. He was tich in hope, in am
bition and in talents, but even here he was for some
t:me in obscurity and poverty. But he knew that
fortune waa a fickle goddess, and be wa'ched her
with a keen rye to tike advantage of the R a chance
abe ahould give him, to ii- to the station he cove
ted. In 1820 he made the acquaintance of Manuel
the great orutor, and Lafitte, and became one of the
writera fur the Constitu'ionnel, one of the best pa
p r in Pari. Hera he shone pre-eminent for the
nerve, the richness and the beauty of hia contribu
tions, and soon he became person .liy acquainted
with great men of the day. He wa a frequent u
sitor at Talleyrand's, and he is frequently called in
deriion by the opposition, tho "would lie Talley
rand" of the day. He i a man of great judgment
and of much olwervalion, and rarely allowa any
thing to escape hia memory. From a mere writer
in the Consiilutior nel, he a -on became a proprietor,
and, foitune hivinj gone will with him, he awu
med the dsn.ly, and was to 1 e found every d ey at
Tort mi', and kept hi horse to ride in the Doi de
Cologne. The Conmitutionnel did not suit his
purpose afier a while. It via too old fashioned,
uud he wanted something frerhir. Accordingly in
1828 he founded a new paper called the Nati mat.
which took a stand more Jem cratie, and was the,
mouth piece of the revolutionary parly. In the
Nationut M. Thiera showed his ii.uuslry and hi
v gor. He attacked the gov,.rnment of Charles X,
and goaded on Polinac lo the utmost. He kept
his pvt when o'her j lurn d sl were afraid to speak,
and va only d ien from it at last by force. M.
Thiers took an act'.ve part in the rcv.du'ion of July,
1830, and it was he with Lafirte thai induced the
Uuke or Orleans to accept tho crown. He ma le
part of the Knit cabinet of Ivi PfAillipj, a under
secretary to the minister of finance. He was soon
after ilected deputy for Aix, and made his fir ft ap
pearance in the Chambers; Tho Lafitte ministry
having been obliged to resign, Casaitnir I'errior be
came prime minister, and the opposition counted
upon M. Thiers as their loader, but he disappointed
them, and came out with an eloquent and able
speech againut all their proposition On the sub
ject of the Hereditary p er ige, democrat and j ico-
bin as he always had txten, he proved himself even
more minintrtial than tho mtnistiy themselves. His
speech on the occasion is said lo have been moi-t
masterly. The hereditary plan fell to the ground,
but from this moment M. Thiers was atamped a
one of tlte first orators of the Chaml-er, and he le-
taiu his rank to thia day. It la useless to fo'l iw
him through all the politic of France to th a lime.
He has, I btlieve, either diieetly or indirectly been
a put of every cabinet since l30 until 1838, when
he wa found on the opposition benches.
In March, 1840, M. 'i hieis became Prime nvn-
is er, and whatever may be said of his acts, he has
khown bimaelf so far an able one. There are many
who doubt whether be will be able to sunUiu him
self through the coming session of the Chamber,
and ihe opposition are making vigorou elf iris to
oust bim if possible, 80 much for M. Thiers a a
publie man. In priva'e be i alfibU to thote he
meets, and a companion whose society is to be co
veted, but beyond this we are permitted to know
nothing. It is saij that ha has uut always dune
what he ahould, and that he was indiiectly coucei

firt of August; that matters of private ncauilal

Majesty'a daily occupation whilst ahe is in London.
They are mutafit miitandit.the same when she ii

generally known, an h irly riser, seldom being in

The time occupied by this meal is about half an
hour, when her majesty, if the weather permiic, en
joys the air in the p'easurc-garJens attached to Bue
kingham Palace: this garden covers a space of for
ty acres. Hero thi Queen fiequently remains an
hour, and is accomp anied by some of the household
or by the Prince. When sho is accompanied by
the latter, etiquette preKcribca that except by invi
tation, the ladies and gentlemen in attendance
should walk at a respectful distance. Upon her
Majesty's return lo the pal ice, she is attended by
hi r secret try, when she affixes her signature to the
various documents which acquire their valid ly by

the commissions of military officers, states paper,

that it ba leforo now required more than two
hours to get through thi businese. The Queen
passes the lime let ween one and three, either in
conver ation, reading, pa n'ing, or mucin. In these
two accomplishments her Majesty is eminently pro
ficient ; her drawings are much admired, and hei
love for mui-ic i well known ; she U excellent both
as an instrumental and vocal perform r. There are
three piano-foite in the sui'e of three drawing

fingers, i magnificent; it is rosewood, inlaid with
gold and vignclte pictures, and coat 1,600 guineas.

Queen receives the Cabinet Ministers and such
other person whom it is usual to honor with au
diences. At five the royal cortege leaves the pal

before eight, except on opera nighta when it is a
little earlier. The usual nuinler of persona who

never fails to be present, except upon the nights of
