M. EDITOR: I send a few versen for
publication, which I hope you will deem
*orthy a. place in your paper. They are
entirely original and written from reeling.
Should this, my first ofibring be accepted,
V thers more deserving the name of poetry
may follow if deuired:
Where Is my Marle.
WVhere is my lov'd one-where is she,
Who once, was all the world to me ?
Where is my Mary, has she flown
And left her 6uillaume all alone 1
Ah I yet, thour't gone, alas ! and I
Am left to wither, droop and die;
To weep. in vain, those burning tears,
For one I've lov'd from childhood's years.
'Tin hard to hide an aching heart
Beneath a smile when forc'el to part
From love, from hope-we then undone,
Can nevermore say "w we are one."
Bt4 none shall ever hear my sighs,
Or see the tears that dim my eyes;
My grief I'll hide, while here I dwell
My sweetest bary, fare thee well.
When.the little birdies sweetly sing
Their merriest notes in joyous spring,
Sweet roses will blow
And violets bloom,
And blue-bells grow
O'er affection's tomb.

AMnRICiANs IN PAars.-A Paris let
ter of the 7th ult., says: The first pre
sentation of Americans to Louis Na
poleon, since he has been Emperor, and
to Mrs. Bonaparte, since she has been
Enpress, took place at the Tuileries,
on Thursday night. About sixty Am.
mericans and seventy English were in
troduced to their Majesties. The cere
mony is briefly this: The gentleme.
and ladies to be esented form
double line, t
au ahnhu 8I
were to dance a.Virginia Reel. Spacee -
no0gh'is left between for their fajcs
ties to pass easily. The Americans
had one half' of the presentation
room, and the English the other. The
practice of the Emperor would seemn
to be to address some remark to about
every third person, as the names of the
presentees are mentioned to him, those
of the ladies by their ambassadress,
and those of the gentlemen by their
ambassador. The American portion
of the ceremony was easy, graceful and
highly successful; their Majesties were
gracious in the extreme. Lord Cowl
ey made a boteh of the English intro
ductions; and an incensed Lord was
heard to remark, "Those Americans al
ways do everything better thani any
one else; we eut no figure at all next
to them."~ Tfhe Emperor looked well;
better, indeed, more at ease, more
desirous of pleasing, than I have ev
er before seen him. The Empress wore
white flowers, both in her hair, anid
scattered in tasteful profusion over her
dress. She had a necklnce of large peal-s
around her neck, but no't a single diami
ond. The American ladies that had
put on all their foleandas, to comnpete
with her Majesty, shone in undiamed
brilliancy. WVe made a very striking
display. I doubt whether thirty hand
somer women were ever collected on
an occaision of the kind. More thani
once the Emperor seemed to single
out a lady of more thans ordinary beau
ty, and call the Empress's attention to
her. After the presentation there was
dancing and a supper. Their Majesti
es .waltzed together, and we-re onc-e or
twice bumped in a most unseemly
manner by Americans who had
grown dizzy, and had lost the power of
properly guiding their footsteps. It
was past one when their Majesties re
tired. The festivities continued, how
ever, after their departure, and when
the olock struck three the company had
not yet left.
PADDLN Youa Own Caxo.-Young
man! You must paddle y-our own
canoe! It is on the whole better that
you should! See that young man who
getsi into a canoe, bought with the mo
ney of hi. parents or his friends.
When the vessel is launebed, he mst
have it paddled by hiaed hands, while
ho lolls back and perhaps sees nothing
but an unsubstantial shadow of him.
aelf ini the smooth waters. By and by
the canoe, through carelessness and
preumtuous steering, is dashed among
the rapids, and he goes down. Should
he come up again, he finds that he is
abandoned by all, and that lhe has
made a wreck where he might have
made a fortune.
Young man or woman! paddle your
own canoe! Even if you are f~av-rd
with parents, or friends who can give
you one, be sure you earn it by the
worthiness of your lives. In high
puro ses, in noble resolves, in generous
d ,in purity and virtuous endur
ance and blameless conversation, let
your endeavors to paddle your own
canoe be sieen by all. Pull away! If
against the rapids, have another ready.
If you have but one, pull with the
stump of the old onel Dort't relax
one effort. One stroke lost, and it
may be the fatal onel Pull away!
Your canoe if you have built It, like
your friend, of the right material in
your.character,, will hold out as long
as you yourself will. Pull away!
And before long you may find your
self in as fair a heaven as the man that
'paddles his own canoe.'
Tux Timias IN AUSTRALIA.-A New
Yorker upon his arrival at Melbourne,
Australia, writes to the Post, as fol
The streets are perfectly crowded
with people, every house cramed as
full as itcan be. There is at present a
law in force prohibiting persons from
erecting anything in the shape of a
house, within a certain distance from
the city, unless bnilt ofeither brick or
stone; and as mechanics cannot be got
at any price, there are few or no houses
in course of erection, and consequently
there is not house accommodation for
one-half of the people. All around
the city, you may see thousands and
thousands living under tents, vnd in
many instances they pitch them right
in the street. I have been fortunate
enough to get lodgings at ?2 per week,
in a small room with four others ; but
many pay 2s. Gd. sterling for sleeping
in the hall of the same house.
I am three days in Melbourne, and
since my arrival flour has risen from
?45 to ?50 per ton; and it is the gen
eral impression here, that it will
double this amount before long. Lum
ber too is almost impossible to be
got at any price, what little there is
has been selling at an enormous price.
There is no doubt but flour and
dressed lumber will pay here, as long
as there is gold found in the country.
Emigrants are flocking here, at the
rate of about four thousand a week
that is, at present; but from advices
from England we may expect almost
double that amount in future. There
are less than fifteen ships, full of pas.
sengers, below, including six hun
dred troops sent out from England.
Every one here looks to the United
States for flour, and should they be
disappointed, the consequences must
be dreadful. All agricultural pursuits
are totally at a stand, while thou
sands and thousands are flocking here
every day. Australia never expor
ted much flour-they say they could
always consume the greater part of
their own produce in breadstuffs; and
now that the population is increasing
at such a fearfbl ratio, and the land ly
ing uutilled, I think there is little
chance of the price decreasing until the
gold fever is over. Any person that
will send flour, dressed lumber, or ev
e4, such as were shipped
eiars nce % s. country fur sey
(s9 say the folks here, and so I think,)
in a very short time.
I "am off to the mines to-morrow
morning. I go to a place called
tihe "Ovens," newly discovered, where
th.' gold has been found in great abun
dance, and flour selling at one hun
dred andpfity pounds sterling per ton. It
is ab~out one hundred and eighty
miles from Melbourne, anid I intend
to walk up; and as cartage to there is
on' one hundred pounds sterling per
ton, I shall only carry what's on
my back. I start with two others,
one of them a nephew of Charles
O'Conor, the lawyer of your city.
If I am fbrt unate enough to be able to
get a supply of bread to main
tuin life, you shall hear from me again,
and have a full account of my mining
experience, anid also of tihe quantity
of gold in the colony, a. 11. x.

idate of imposing pretensions for that
ignity presents himself in "Carl Ben.

risted, author of "Five Years in an
nglish University," and other atheti.
i compositions. This pleasant young
entleman, having devoted time en
ugh to ma'king Latin verses, has he
un the serious business of life which
e evidently takes to be the study of"
ups, wines, currieles, clothes and.
pera glasses. Of course Paris is the
uliy place for the prosecution of such4
nportant researches, and accordingly
e has taken up his residence there at
lumiero 20, Rue Barb.e:de Jouay."
~romi this enchanting pieda-terre he has
itely written a long letter for the dn
ectation of all Ameriean dandies,
-hich the Hlome Journial publishes,
lear him on the subject of gloves:
" Gloves have deteriorated .yery
inch in Paris of late. Prioat's are
ow good for n*othing either 'for 6t
iaterial or uewing. Boivin iane' ara ''

ave not a bad hand, and have been a
aod customer there, (my last year's,
ilhl was nearly $400,) but I never had
dozen of gloves made at Boivin's, in
hich there were not at least three dif
rent sizes, and half a dozen pair that..
d not fit."
Beau Brummell once told a lady
at consult him as to the expense of
ressing her son who was just "coming
it" in society, that "with strict econo.
ty it could be done for ?800 a year."
ut the Beau never alluded to the
nailness of his hand or the profita
eness of his custom. Carl Benson
lys his bills, perhaps, and considers
mnself licensed to speak upon the lat
r point freely. That he has not a
ad hand" must be a gratifying piece
information to the public. But
hat would his old grandfather, Johmn
icob Astor, have said to $400 peran
um for a glove bill?
