Ob there are mem'rics bright, that come
With rop'ure o'er the lonely heart.
To bring back gleams of joy long fljwn,
And e'en t sorrow light impart.
A something namelcas. undefined,

Comra with itt magic o'er the mind.
To mako u feci we have been bleat.
How oft amid the gayest train,
Where pleasure danced in joyous round,
A word tone has thrilled the chain,
That mem'ri spell had darkly bound.
And slumb'ring thoughts, that could not diet
Enraptured hours, A Ins! no more,
Rurh'd o'er the hrart, and dim'd the eye,
To ft el those joy a forever o'er.
And ere there only joys that rise 1
Has grief no record to unroll t
Oh ! yea remembci'd agonies,
Start into life, and rend the soul.
Oh ! there are nvmi'iics dark that come,
Te blight and chill the lonely heart,
To wrap the spirit in their gloom,
And bid each brighter gleam di par'.
But wou'd we thrn, the boon forego !
And quaff oblivion's dcad'uing stream 1
No! there's a luxury in woe,
Dearer than pleasure's brightest dream.

Within each friendly, fet ling breast;

Though thou, dear Mend, to realms above,
Far from all worldly ilU hast flown,
Where reigns such sweet celestial love,
As m rtal hearts have never known
When glitters bright the midnight sky.

Full many a friend shall heave a sigh.
And bathe with tears thy hailow'd ground.

The trial of Dr. Eld ridge, for for
gery, is still in progress. Thc two
eminent Counsels for thc accused, W.
L. Hirst, and David Paul Drown,
Esq's, have occupied most of thc time
during the week past, in the delivery
of their speeches. I hey have made
great exertion on behalf of the pris
oner, and all that legal ingenuity, wit
and eloquence,, could do, has been
brought into requisition on his behalf.
On the other side, however, stands an
array of eminent counsel, the solici
tors for the various banks that have
been defrauded, who arc untiring and
vigilant, rendering, it would seem,
escape impossible. We shall be able
possibly in our next, to give tho ver
dict. Tho mass of irrelevant testimony,
and the number of minor issues, which
have been forced into this case, have
unnecessarily consumed tho time and
money of tho Commonwealth, but with
tho number of lawyers engaged, it
could not be otherwise. Every man
must have his say, and will endeav
or to show how fierce a lawyer he
is, to the gaping crowd of idlers, who
throng all tho Courts of Justice,
while perhaps the families of many of
them, are in actual suffering for the
nccessrrics of life.

Professor Arndt, after being shut
up in a fortress for twenty-one years,
his struggles, his sufferings, and his
name almost forgotten, has, we learn
by the German papers, been restored
to liberty. Young men will ask, we
aro afraid, in Germany as they ask
in America, who is Arndt? Four or
five and twenty years ago a profes
sor of his name was thc terror of tho
German Government, lie was impri
soned, not for misdeeds, but his pop
ularity. The students sung his hymns
to lilterty, repeated his burning words,
and frightened Kings. Ily the patri
olic exertions of the Germans, the
French were driven across thc Rhine,
and when tlicy claimed their promis
ed reward of a liberal constitution,
they were answered with stripes, dun
geons, and fetters. Arnt, we believe,
was one of those who felt most deep
ly the faithlessness of the King of
Prussia, and most loudly and elo
quently expressed his indignation. For
that he was imprisoned, and for that
he has been kept i prison for twenty-one
years. The present King of
Prussia has the merit of releasing him,
of restoring him to his professorship,
and of compensating him for a part
of the pecuniary loss he has sustain
ed by his imprisonment Dut the ty
rant who confined him could no more
restore Arndt tho years of which he
deprived him, than he could restore
the dead to life. Arndt has been rob
bed of his fame, past all human pow
ers to give him redress. For twen
ty one years he has been dead to
urope, and he comes lorth Irom his
dungeon only for men to ask, " who

Quick Way to Get Itlch.
A Miss Ingram, of Pontcac, some
time since was perusing a Texas pa
per, and observed among the persons
that bore a prominent part in thc af
fairs of that government, a man bear
ing her own name, and jocosely re
marked to her companions, that she
had found a namesake in Texas, and
intended to write to him and claim
relationship. This resolution, more
from curiosity and a desire of novel
ty than from any conviction that her
hopes would be realized, was carried
into effect. She wrote him a respect
ful letter, giving him a history of her
family and parentage, and suggesting
that as the name was not as com
mon as most of the names of our
country, the probability was strong
thnt n rolnlionebip U.xistud between
them. She received in reply, a friend
ly and affectionate letter acknowledg
ing her as a cousin, and expressing
an earnest desire that thc correspon
dence might be continued.
This was readily acceded to, and
it was carriep on agreeably and sat
isfactorily to both parties, until very
recently, when she received intelli
gence of his death, and information
lli.it in his will he had bequeathed
her the handsome sum of 820,000 in
gold and silver, leaving his personal
property and immense landed estates
to his relatives in that country. A few
days previous to tho reception of this
joyful communication, she had con
ncctcd her fortunes with those of a
Methodist clergyman, and hould their
deeds of charity comport with their
means, the widows heart will he Idled
with joy, and many an orphan live
to implore blessings upon the heads
of their benefactors, for their deeds
of benevolence and generosity.

Romance In Real K4fe
A romantic incident has just occur
red in thc Marylebonc Infirmary.
Ann Dempsey, a young and interes
ting girl, who had been the support
of an aged mother, had gone into
thc infirmary for the purpose of un
dergoing an operation for thc remo
val of a dropsical complaint, which
had assumed thc form of a largo tu
mour. She was warned of the pain
ful and even perilous nature of the
operation, but she expressed her res
olution to submit to it, owing to the
ardent wish that her life might be
spared for her mother's sake. The
operation was accordingly performed
in tho presence of her mother and
several eminent medical men. It
lasted two hours and forty minutes,
and thc magnitude of the tumour
taken from her may be imagined
when it contained no less than two
gallons and a half of water. Not
withstanding the long and painful
operation, singular to relate, this he
roic girl never uttered a single cry 5
but at the conclusion tears were oh
served rolling down her checks, and
being desired not to shed them, she
replied that they " wero tears of joy
at her freedom from tho incubus
which had so long alllicted her."
As she appeared to be in a sinking
condition, tho medical gentlemen up
on a consultation, deemed a fresh
infusion of blood into her veins abso
lutely necessary. On making inquiries
as to whom they could procure to
provide the blood, it was ascertained
tli.it two men wero in an adjoining
room, one 25, and tho udier between
30 and 40 years of age, anxiously
awaiting the issue of the operation.
Believing them, in thc first instance,
to bo relatives of the poor girl, they
were ushered into the room when it
turned out that the eldest was her
employer, for whom she worked at
shoo binding and thc other a jour
neyman in the same employ, both
devotedly attached to the unfortunate
girl. On being made acquainted with
her state, and what was required to
bo done for thc patient, they both
simultaneously volunteered to supply
tho blood from their veins. Much
bitterness of feqh'ng and contention
between them ensued as to which
should do so, which was put an end
to by the decision of thc surgeons in
favor of,- tho youngest, who, baring
his arm, with great energy exclaimed
" that he was willing to lose thc last
drop of his blood to save her life."
The blood was then carefully infused
from his arm into thc veins of the
poor sufferer, till thc youhg man
fainted from his loss. On this taking
place thc cider lover implored per
mission to supply the remainder, but
thc girl recovering, it was deemed
unnecessary. The oor girl Itcgan to
improve and great hopes were enter
tained of her recovery, but unfortu
nately those hopes were blasted, for,
unknown to the surgeons, she was
found to be indicted with a severe
diarrhea, which increased until it be
came a confirmed case of cholera,
from thc effects of which she died
on thc fifth day after the operation
She was scnsiblo to thc last, and the
i . i ,
acaiii oca scene is represented as
truly affecting. She expressed a wish
to sec the young man who had lost
his blood for her, kissed him, bade
him cut off a lock of her hair, and
begged ol him to be kind to her mo
ther. She then entered into prayors
with lo Kb. Mn JluwUj, tlil'lnlj-
lain to thc workhouse, and in the
midst of it expired.
