I DARE NOT LOVE THEE I
BY S. P. HOW I.
I dare not love thee, yet my soul could pour
Its richest treasures wildly out on thee ;
But, ah I I tremble e'er to venture more
Affection's bark on love's too treacherous sea!
I dare not love thee ! yet thy very name
Makes every fibre of my bosom thrill
When strange lips essay to praise or blame,
The blood within my trembling heart stands still.
I dare not love thee 1 yet thou hast the power
To fill my spirit with a pure delight
Thy presence is to me the gentle hour
.The soft, sweet star-light of the spirit's night!
I dare not love thee! for 'twould be to stake
My very life upon a dangerous throw,
A cast, perchance, my happiness might make,
But might destroy it at a single Mow !
-. Dost thou recall the dulcet sounds that fell
From Memnon's lips, when rose the morning
Thy smile is to my heart that mystic spell
The sounds are banished toon ajthou art gone
I dare not love the ! yet my soul ccj i.1 pour
Its richest treasures wildly out on thee ;
But, ah! I tremble e'er to venture more
Affection's hark on love's tumultuous sea!

Surrender of TeraCruz and Castle of
San Joan del'lloa.
I can never forget the feelings of national
pride and exultation that seized and agita-
iea my anxious bosom, and in winch the
' whole army seemed to participate, as it
flashed like lightning along the crowded
ranks, and manifested itself in half sup
pressed murmurs of applause, when I saw
the stars and stripes, that proud banner that
had waved over half the world, and swent
old ocean's home, run up upon the flag-staff
oi me impregnable cstle, while it was sa
luted by twenty-eight rounds from the verv
. guns which, but a few days before, had been
caiiering their death shots thick and wide
amongst our ranks. I have heard the poets
ceieoraie the honor or our nag in their wild
est and most exalted strains of poetry; I
have heard the orator, in his grandest and
uhjimest flights of fancv. attemDt to denict
the resplendent glories of the almost omnip
otent banner of the stars, but never have I
,flt its potency in all its irresistible and con
trolling influence, until I saw its bright and
tar-lit folds flung out to the breeze upon
that proud eminence where the untamed
eaglet of Anahuic had fluttered'for centu
ries with free and unfettered wing. The
tarllmg fact was pealed out in thunder
tones upon the ear of an astonished world,
that the proud, far-famed, and most power-
luicasue oi san J uan de UHoa, whose state
ly walls and towering ramparts had been
pronounced utterly impregnable to any
force, by tome of the first officers of the
army and nary, was now in possession of
uen. Scott and his invincible troops, while
its granite bound streets were trod in tri
umph by the restless feet of "the barbari
ans of the North"
The two forts upon the beach, Santiago
ana conception, were surrendered in the
ame way, i by pulling down the Mexican
flag-and running up the stars aid stripes in
its stead, and which was soon enveloped in
clouds of smoke which rose from the salute
of the guns below, as twenty-eight rounds
were fired from the captured pieces of each
fort. I thought I never had seen General
Scott look so well as he' did that morning,
as he tat in bis saddle a head and shoulders
taller than those around him, his fine eye
flashing, and his countenance lit up with a
mile, lie dashed past our lines on his fine
bay charger, accompanied by Gen. Worth
and Jtia atafl; and hastened to take his posi
tion at the head of the columns, and near
where the Mexican lines were to be formed.
I noticed that his horse would paw the
ground and champ the bit, when the boom
ing of the cannon would reach his ear, as if
impatient to bea his gallant rider to the
The Mexican army manifested a good
deal of patriotic indignation and wounded
pride, jn the surrender of their arms; they
were required to inarch out from the city
and stack their arms in the presence of the
American army, in doing which, some of
them would hurl them against the ground
as though they would break itrni in pieces,
while oilier would ull nit their hats and
dash tliein down, stamping tlit-ui under their
feet with muttered curses of indignation,
while others, turning to take a last farewell
of their ancient and beautiful city as it was
now fading in the distance, would rend the
air with the most piteous howls and lamen
tations. Mothers were seen w ith their chil
dren in their arms, hurrying to & fro through
the ranks, carrying' in their hands their most
valuable articles of furniture, as though they
expected that every thing they left behind
them, even their homes and firesides, and
family altars, would be swept away before
the desolating march of the merciless inva
der. Children were seen hanging to the
skirts of their fathers, loaded with toys and
play-thing?: some with chickens under their
arms, others leading and coaxing along some
favorite dog, which perchance had been the
pet of the family. Cages of parrots and
canary birds, rattles and ribbons, violins
and guitars, together with all the parapher
nalia of a Mexican household, all mingling
in spleneid confusion with the life likeness
of the Holy Virgin, and the figure of our
saviour upon the cross: while towering him
above all, in silent grandeur and majesty,!
was seen the worshipped and venerated
household god, the Santa Cruz ( holy cross)

Accounts state that the Venitian deputies
sent to negotiate for the surrender of Venice
to the Austrian ministry at Verona, have
been dismissed, & have returned to Venice.
The bombardment and siege would again
be prosecuted with greater vigor. The

successful. Among the prisoners carried
into Venice, besides several officers of the
staff, were two generals.

FRANCE AND ROME.
The Legislative Assembly has been a
scene of much turbulence and recrimina
tion during the past week. The despotic
spirit which marks the proceedings of the
Government, is having the effect to unite
those sections of the the Assembly, which
were not heretofore friendly, in a compact
opposition to Barrot. On the 30i! the Con
stituent Assembly of Rome finding that
further resistance to the rencb army would
be in vain, ceased hostilities, and virtually
surrendered the eternal city to the besieg
ers. Un the loth an official notification
was made to the French Legislative As
sembly that in consequence of arrangement!:
entered into between General Uudinot and
the Roman Triumvirate, the gate of Parolo
fortera and Saint Fanoracio had been
thrown open to the French troops, who were
advancing measures for the immediate oc
cupation of Kome, which should take place
with perlect quietness and order.
lhe communications produced a deep
sensation in the Chamber. A correspond
ent writing from Paris, says, that just as the
course was closing, it was stated posi
tively that the Government had received
a Telegraphic dispatch announcing the en
trance of the French army into Rome, and
that they were received with acclamations
by the people. The division of Garabaldi
had been conducted to Civita Veechia,
where they laid down their aims. Two di
visions of the army would be lodged and
maintained by the Roman Government.
On the receipt of this news, the funds rose
1 per cent. Just before the reception of
this intelligence, General Dedas left Paris
to take command of the aruiv in Italy, Gen
eral Oudinot having beeu ordered home in
disgra.ee. Arrangements were also prompt
ly made to increase the army of Italy to 50,'
000 men. On the reception of the news f
the surrenderor Kome to General Oudinot,
a telegraphic dispatch was sent to Marseil
les, ordering General Dedas to wait there
for further instruction, before proceeding
on ins marcn,
