The human beart his hidden treasures,
Irn meort kept, In silence sealed,
The thoughts, the hopes, the dreams, the pleasures,
Whose charms were broken, if revealed.
And day may pss in gay confuelon,
And nights innois rlot fly,
While lost in fhee or wealth's illusion,
The memory or the pat may die.
But there arehours of lonely musing,
fob ash i evening silence come,
When mset as birds, theirpidnlone eloenlg,
The heart's best feling gather home.
Then In our soals there seems to languish
A tender grief that Is not woe:
And thoughts that once wrung groans of anguish,
Now causo but some mild teors to flow.
And feelings, once as strong a passions,
Float softly book, a ftded dream
Our own sharp grief ad wild sensations,
The tastes of others' suflbrings seem ;
Oh I when the heart is freshly bleeding,
Now longs It for that time to be,
Wha., through the mists of years receding,
Its woes but live in reverie.
And it can dwell on moonlight glimmer,
On evening shades and loneliness,
And while the sky grown dim and dimmer,
Feel no untold sud strange distress
Only a deeper Impulse given
By lonely hour and darkened r out,
To solemn thoughts that soar to Heaven,
Seeklug the life and worl. to come.
WoxaN.-We find the following going
the rounds of the press without credit. It
certainly displays discrimination, and we
think it not less discriminating than just:
"The English woman is respectful and
proud; the French woman is gay and agree
ablei the Italian is pasionate; the Ameri
can is sincere and affectionate. With an
English woman, love is a principal; with a
French woman is a caprice; with an Italian
it is a passion; with an American it is a
esntiment. A man is married to an Eng
lish woman; is united to a French; co-hab
its with an Italian, and is wedded to an
American. An English woman is anxious
to scure a lord; a French woman a com
paniop; an Italian a lover, and an Ameri
can a husband. The Englishman respects
his lady: the Frenchman esteems his com
panion; the Italian adores his mistress; the
American loves his wife. The Englishman
at night returns to his house, while the
Frenchman goes to his establishment; the
Italian to his retreat; the American to his
home. When an Englishman is sick, his
lady visits him, when a Frenchman is sick,
his companion pities, when an Italian is
sick, his mistress sighs over him; when an
American is sick hiswifenurses him. The
English woman instructs her offspring; a
French woman teaches her progeny; an
Italian' rears her young, while an Ameri
can educates her child.
Tan 'SQUIru's GEORGIA WIDOW.- "Oh!"
says the 'Squire " I wish I was married and
well over it. I dread it powerful. I'd
like to marry a widow. Iallers liked
widows since I knowed one down in Geor
gia, that suited my ideas adzactly.
"About a week after her husband died,
she started down to the krave-yard, where
they planted of him, as she said, to read
the prescriptions onto his monument.
Who she got there, she stood a minute a
looking at the stones which was put at each
end of the grave, with an epithed on 'ea
that the minist ehad writ for her. Then
she burst out, ' ! boo!' Says she:' Jones
he was one of the best men, I remember
how the last time lie brought down from
town some sugar and a little tea, and some
store-goods for me, and lots of little neceos
saries, and a little painted hose for Jeems,
which that blessed child got his mouth all
yaller with sucking of it; and then he kiss
ed the children all round, and took down
that good old fiddle of his'n and played
up that good old tune:
" Rake her down Sal, oh ! rang dang diddle.
Obh I rang dang-dlddle, dang, dang, da!"
"Here,' says the 'Squire, 'she begin to
dance, and I just thought she was the great
eat woman I ever see.'
The 'Squire always gives a short laugh
after telling this anecdote,, and then filling
and lighting his pipe, subsides into an arm
chair in front of the 'Exchange,' and in
dulges in calm and dreamy reollection.
"Hiram, my boy," said a tender father
to his son, "you must be more careful of
yourself; you have not the constitution of
some." " )on't you believe it dad; I've
got the constitution of a horse. 1)ang it,
if I don't believe I've got the constitution
of the United States.'
WOMAN.-God intended all women to be
beautiful, as much as lihe did the roses and
the morning glories; and what hIe intended
was that they should obey his laws, and
cut indolence and corset strings, and iwn
dulge in freedmcctln and fresh air. For a girl
to expect to be handsome, with the action
of her luIgs dependent on the expansive
nature of a cent s worth of tape, is as abI
surd as to look for tulips in a snow-bank,
or a full grown oak in i little flowerpot.
UNITED STATES REVIEW & STATE
TN CONNECTION with the usual matter,
- political and literary, contained in the UN1
rTD StrZs REVIEW, we intend to republish all
the state papers extant on the question of state
rights as announced in the Virginia Resolutions
of '98 and '99. The publication will embrace
also the works of standard writers, such as
John Taylor of Caroline, whose works are now
nearly out of print. These valuable political
data will be carefully collected, and when com
pleted, will furnish a complete constitutional
history of our Federal Union. The subscrip
tion list of the " State-Rights Register" (the
prospectus of which was issued under the aps
probation of the Democratic members and
senators in congress) will be furnished regular
ly with the Reevic from this date, and we hope
each subscriber will feel that he is performing
a duty to a great and sacred political principle
by extending the list of names already on our
It is time for us to go go back to those pure
principles upon which the great fabric of de
mocracy rests; principles originated and defined
by those who created, and best, understood the
true meaning of the constitution. It is time
that the friends of state sovereignty should ral
ly around some common nucleus, to resist the
wild latitudinarianism of the age, and evident
tendency of the republic towards concentration
-to end at best hi a mixed monarchy. It is
time for each states-rights man to feel that he
must give his own personal individual influence
to the defense of the very corner-stone of our
We send the Review to the subscribers of
the State-Rights Register, and feel confident
that they will respond heartily to the call.
The true Democracy have a great battle to
fight, a great principle of self-government to
uphold, an inspired Constitution to defend.
