From the Model American Courier.
My heart il like to break, tonight,
'Tis lika to rend in twain,
For loving one thai loves Die not,
And heedeih not its pain.
Nor is ilii love the transient flam
Of Teeling's meteor glare;
But like the fire on holy shrines,
For ever burning there.
Unkindled and unfanned, il fell
A little spark at first;
1 knew not when it woke to life,
And into being burst.
I only know il spread and ran, , .
Subduing earthly pride;
Till feelings chastened fountain lay,
Refreshed and purified.
Yea, by a spell 1 could not break,
I chased the beacon sign;
Nor cored I that another soul
Should give its life to mine
Till day by day the name I loved
Was trembling on my lips;
And in my hrart no other light
His glory could eclipse.
And daily too 'twas all tny prayer,
That God would keep and bless,
And fill the soul transfused in mine,
With perfect happiness.
1 know not how I dared to blend
That spirit with my own,
Or ask our Father's hand to keep
The idle on hit throne.
I dare not tell how much 1 loved,
Nor could I if I dare,
Before I asked one answering word,
In pity lo my prayer.
But ol.! those words my burning lips
For ever ehull conceal,
For cold suspicions mocked my love
It shamed me to reveal.
0, God! I know 'tis thy tebuke, .
But cannot tear apart
Chains that enslave my will, and bind
This idol to my heart.
Be Hill that heart, thy worship wild
Is cast on empty oir;
The all-consuming love of years
Is buried in despair.
Important Tax Title Decision. In
April 1810, Stephen Donohoe sued James
Coy in the Chariton circuit court, in on ac
tion of ejectment, to recover a tract of
land in Chariton county, on which Coy
lived. Donohoe claimed the Innd by pur
chase, at the land sales for taxes, made by
the Sheriff of Chariton county, in Septem
ber 1844, for the taes of the year 1812.
Some two or three trials were had in the
Chariton circuit court, but the juries were
unable to agree upon a verdict, and at the
March term 1818, of the Chariton circuit
court a change of venue was taken to
Grundy county; and during last week, at

First. This Churn will produce butter, gather
ing it in a mass, from sweet milk, in five to ten
minues, and trom cream prepared, as families usu
ally prepare it, in three to five minutes.
Second. The utility of this invention is appa
rent, as better butter can be produced from sweet
milk, or cream, than cream soured in the usual
way; and by means of this Churn, a little girl or
boy can perform, in live or ten minutes, what lias
heretofore required the labor ot a woman or man
for oneortwo hours, and sometimes half a day.
Third. By simply turning a thumb-screw, the
whole inside dnslier is taken out, leaving nothing
but the butler and milk in the plain wooden box.
Fourth. It is the cheapest Churn ever invented
as the simplicity of its construction (though em
bodying a great philosophical principle,) makes it
but little to manufacture it.
Fifth. It is a common sense Churn, as all will

ADDISON G. BRAGG, of St. Louis, having
made a foul and malicious attempt to destroy
the popularity and sale of Dr. Champion's very
popular and highly esteemed medicines, by mean's
of false add slanderous publications in the Saint'
Louis Sun, and in other papers published in St.
Louis, and perhaps in popers published in different
ports of tho country and having failed in his ma
licious intent, we know not what other means may
be resorted to to accomplish this foul purpose
but in order lo guard the public against imposition
we deem it our duly lo inform them that we have
furnished all our travelling agents with a regularly
authenticated Letter of Attorney, signed with our
own written signotures, and certified under seal by
a-Notarv Public or other proper officer of St. Clair
county, Illinois, and also with a copy of the Letter
Testamentary, certified and sealed by the Probate'
