I know a grove, a Hummer grove, Where midday suu beams never fall; By Nature consecrate to love Fragrant and cool and silent all. Silent, nave when, from orerhend, Or right, or left, or all around, From his mysterious leafy bed The robin's welcome notes resound ; Or soothing drone of idle bee, Or insect call, or, sweeter still, Pervades the ear, continuously, The music of a gurgling rill. Here, in this grove, when yonder sun Sinks wearily in Wauba's tide,* 1 sit, and, tearful, think of one? One whom I lovo o'er all beside? One I adore?but dare not name, Whom 'tis a crime to think upon? Yet ohl I love her all the same, And must till hope and life are gone! And I could tell?yes! I could tell, llow, once, it was not wrong to love; And how wo threaded many a dell, And how we haunted many a grove; And hoyr I listened eagerly? Breathless, enraptured?to each tone; Only betraying by a sigh How deep I loved, bow peace had down. And, ah I I trusted. She deceived? Not not such wrong she could not do! I saw, her gentle bosom heaved, And felt?oh! joy?the loved me loo I Yet neither spake?we knew 'twas vain? A vain, yet soul-entrancing dream; Still, oft we mot, and oft again Thought silently renewed the theme. Wo parted; o'er the restless sea, For many a lonely day and night, My white-winged bark seemed painfully To bear me from my Ella's sight. Love yields to time, nor space; nor aught Can e'er subdue his latent fire ; Mine was not that by Fancy caught From the low embers of Desire! Thus, when long, weary months had pa^t, Mid scenes full fair and strange to view, And when my forest shores at last Returned, this burning heart was true. Columbia's white sand l>each arose, Like a snow-cloud, upon the sea; And all around forgot their woos, And sang and smiled?tare only me. One told me of a sire, that long Had thought him cold on foreign strand; And, too, the good man's stirring wroug, Wrought him by one who craved his land; And how he meant?I marked his smile? To right that wrong, and claim?a brifle. 0 Uod! this marble soul, the while, Would joy with him?but vainly triod! , Another came, with eager word Of hopes that beckoned on the slioro? The moaning waves were all I heard, Their voice was melody no more! Yet could I turn my morbid thought From Memory's engulphing deep, Aud on this sliadeless brow I sought What cause oould make my dark soul weep; For, as his tones fell heedless on The calm, the chill, unliving air. Hit Itiok met mine?and swift were gone The icy fetter* of despair; And down this flushed and sunken check? As welcome as the Summer flood? Coursed the hot tears, and seamed to speak Sweet soothing to my maddening mood. The face I saw was as mine own? Or, as mine own lx'forc the kiss Of unavailing love was known To seal the death, as birth, of bliss, Ere we had patted?I would part K'en now, in memory, from the past! Peace! anguished soul?nor writhing start! Thou shalt have rest, sweet rest, at last! His days were many as were mine, But sunlight shone from morn to eve? The heart he wooed a sheltered shrine The winds of fato might never grieve; While mine?alas! what need to tear, from the barred chamber of my coul. The thwarted lore, that, rankling there, Aroused would scorn my stern control Ills rich brown hair, his arching brows.

The following is an authentic narrative, which we have been permitted to copy from an un published journal: A couple of sailors chnnced, upon a certain 4th of July, near Amsterdam, Holland, to get into a quarrel with the police of the city, and pitched iuto and upset about a dozen of them, capturing the swords of some, and using the same pretty freely upon the " officers of the law and protectors of the peace." It was, of course, a grave offence. In the fiist place, they were Americans, and it was the 4th of July? two things dreaded by monarchical govern ments in Europe. It was a public and armed resistance of the law of the land, aud the mat ter was taken up with great seriousness by the authorities. The punishment was not so severe as anticipated, yet severe euough; for they were sentenced to solitary confinement or ban ishment, one for eighteen months, the other for three years. The one who was sentenced for three years was in love with, and engaged to, a "black-eyed Sue," in Hoston, and, before be ing sent to jail, asked an interview with the director. The audience was given, when the poor fellow told his tale of love; how he adored "his girl;" how he had a picture of her, and produced the likeness of a sweet, young-look ing face. Ho wanted the director to keep it for him. "If I como back in three years, I will engage on a ship for Amsterdam, and como here and get it; if I don't, why, send it to her in Hoston?her name's inside." " But," said the director, "why don't you keep it with you?? it will be safer with you, and such a consola tion." Jack looked at the picture for some time, his eyes filling up with tears?" No, no ; I would like to see it, but I cannot bear the idea of her portrait briny in a felon's cell /" By gracious! when I heard that, my heart fairly leaped into my throat. What refinement! What, / elicacy! Who, among all the gilded and be decked lenders of ?'refined circles," would bo capable of such heroism of the heart ? Who but an American sailor would, under such cir cumstances, have acted so truly, and with such nobleness of sonl ? His trial took place before my nrrival in Holland; and upon heariug the story from an eye-witness, my interest was, of course, keenly excited for him. The story soon got out, and there was no little sympathy among the fair sex aroused for one u'/io appre ciated them ?u well, (a rare thing, by-the-way, in liuropc;) and by the kind co-operation of our charge, (Mr. Folsom,) the two sailors were pardoned by the Dutch government. The last 4th of July I went to the jail, and, procuring ndmiBfltan, ordered them a good dinner, and in formed them that they would be liberated on the 4th of September. They were very thank ful, and seemed delighted, especially the "hero," who, when I asked him what port he would like to sail for, blushed liko a girl, and said? " Hoston!" Mr. Fillmore on Slavery. For the instruction of such as may desire to know what Mr. Fillmore's opinions were thir teen years ago, wo republish the following let ter, now the subjcct of extensive newspaper comment: Buffalo, October 17, 1838. Sir: Your communication of the 15th inst., as chairman of a committee appointed by "The Anti-Slavery Society of the county of Erie," has just come to hand. You solicit my answer to the following interrogatories : " First. Do you believe that petitions to Con gress on the subject of slavery and the slave trade ought to be received, road, and respect fully considered by the representatives of the people? " Second. Are you opposed to the annexation of Texas to this Union, under any circum stances, so long as slaves are held therein ? " Third. Are you in favor of Congress exor cising all the constitutional power it possesses to abolish the internal slave trade between the States ? " Fourth. Are you in favor of immediate leg islation for the abolition of slavery in the Dis trict of Columbia ?" I am much engaged, and have no time to en ter into an argument, or to explain at full length my reasons for my opinion. I shall therefore content myself for the present by answering all your interrogatories in the affirmative, and leave for some future occasion a more extended dis cussion of the subject. I would, however, take this occasion to say that, in thus frankly giving my opinion, I would not desire to have it un derstood in the nature of a pledge. At the same time that I seek no disguises, but freely give my sentiments on any subjcct of interest to those for Avhose suffrages I am a candidate, I am opposed to giving any pledges that shall deprive me hereafter of all discretionary power. My own character muBt be the guarantee for the general correctness of my legislative deport ment. On overy important subject I am bound to deliberate before I act, and, especially as a legislator, to possess myself of all the informa tion, and listen to every argument tnat can be adduced by my associates, before I give a final vote. If 1 stand pledged to a particular course of action 1 cease to be a responsible agent, but I become a mere machine. Should subsequent events show, beyond all doubt, that the course 1 had become pledged to pursue was ruinous to my constituents and disgraceful to myself, 1 have no alternative, no opportunity for repent ance, and there is no power to absolve me from my obligation. Hence the impropriety, not to say absurdity, in my view, of giving a pledge. 1 am aware that you have not asked any pledge, and I believe I know your sound judgment and good sense too well to think you desire any such thing. It was, however, to prevent any mis representation on the part of others, that I have : felt it my duty to say thus much on this subjcct. I I am, respectfully, your most obedient ser vant, Millaiw Fillmore. W. Mills, esq., Chairman, &c. The Bi.oomkr Costcmk.?Grace Greenwood, who has lately visited her friend the Hon. Mr. Giddings, has written a letter to the National Era on matters and things in general, from which wo extract the following : " Mr. Giddings amused me by telling of a distinguished Judge, thereabouts, who, having a young law student under examination, sol emnly put to him the questions, ' Do you be lieve in the rappings ? Do you go the Bloomer dress?' " I havo, as yet, seen no specimen of the new costume which I thought pretty. 1 think it might be made very picturesque; and, provided one had the independence to don it, and feel comfortable in it, nothing could be better for a journey to the Far West, a visit to the Mam moth Cave, a trip to the White Mountains, or for long morning walks in the country. "As a costume for the parlor, or as a com mon street dress, I surely could not advocate it. But I do advocate the right of every woman to dress as she pleases?to make herself beautiful or hideous, as suits her fancy?provided no just law of delicacy is violated. The cry of im modesty, raised against the new costume, is, it seems to me, most unfounded and senseless. " Still more ridiculous is the accusation that the Bloomers have unlawfully appropriated the sign and symbol of masculine dignity and do- 1 minion. If, in truth, they had robbed you of your heavy, ungraceful ' bifurcated garments,' you ought to be inexpressibly relieved. But at the worst, they have only made free with Mos lem privileges, and I doubt not that the gentle men Mohammedans, more gallant than trans Atlantic Christians, will have a proper sense of the compliment." CathaMIKI Hayis.?Her figure is rather above the medium, full and well 14 finished up," as the artists would say, to the lines of beauty. Her hair is exuberant, curling and of a rich auburn color ; in the suulight it would be golden. I She has a large, soft, cerulean eye, a good- ' natured mouth, and a smile as radiant as sun shine. In her conversation she betrays a plea- . Bant wit, combined with the enthusiasm peculiar to her countrymen. AH the portraits represent 1 her with an expression of sadness, a sort of weeping-and-willowy look, as if she wore lis tening to the broken waitings of the Harp of Tara; but a more lively, joyous, sunny face, wo have seldom seen, while her spirits seem to flow and overflow in animated sympathy with everything that is bright and good and beauti ful around her. Take her, as Shakspeare would say, for all in all, she is a flush pattern ot womanhood?body, mind, and soul.?N. Y. Mir. | Fifty Bloomers were seen in Bridget?*, N. J., last week. I A Youno and Beautiful Vocalist.?The Baltimore American of this morning says: IMiss Jenny Busk's Concert on Monday even ing was attended by the beauty und fashion of the city. >So large and brilliant an audience must have been very liattering to the young debutante. She was very pale, and we suspect a little afraid?the tremendous applause should have reassured her. It has been said such powers of vocalization were never known iu a child. Miss Jenny goes to Washington for a few ;days, where she gives a concert on Saturday evening. She will give another concert in Bal timore next week, when we hope all who did not hear her on Monday evening will attend, and thus eucouragc native talout. A correspondent at Baltimore informs us that the style of "her voice greatly resembles that of Jenny Lind." Trenton, N. J., October 1.?The great India Rubber cases between Goodyear and Day camo up for a final hearing yesterday before Judges Greer ami Dickerson, of the United States Cir cuit Court. Thare were two actions, ono at law and the other in equity, involving the validity of the Goodyear patents. The defendant was ready, und claimed a trial for the suit at law. The plaintiff' filed an affidavit, and moved to post pone the trial at law, and moved that the case in equity, praying for an injunction, be taken up and tried before the suit at law, on the ground that the defendant, by certain contracts, was estopped from denying the validity of the Goodyear patents, thus evincing a disposition to avoid the only action by which the validity of the patent could be tested, which action was first on the calendar and first in order for trial. The defendant strenuously demanded a trial of the action at law on the ground before stated. A considerable debate on each side for two days has finally resulted in the continuance of the suits pending, in order that the testimony on both sides may be completed by the 15th of next February. Time Wanted.?The Washington Republic j says that " Mr. Owen is entitled to time, to be I heard from officially by the Department, in ex planation of his conduct. His case must bo duly considered, and decided upon with delib j eration." So wo suppose. The fifty prisoners j at Havana wanted a little "time," but they did I not get it, when, we doubt not, had our Consul [ appealed to the Captain-General, " time" would have been allowed. Wo do not doubt it, any more than wo doubt that the non-appearance of Mr. Owen was considered tantamount to the approval of our Government of the execution. Mr. Owen had abundance of "time" to act in behalf of the remaining prisoners ; but he de liberated and kept aloof. There has already been too ihuch "time and deliberation" ex pended upon the case. Action is wanted?it is high "time" for action.?N. Y. llerald. American Consul at Havana.?The Louis ! ville Courier, an able and high-toned Adminis I tration paper, says : It seems that Mr. Owen, | the United States Consul at Cuba, has at labt i condescended to notice the torrent of indignr. I tion that from all parts of the Union had been let loose upon him, for refusing to see or to make an attempt to commuuicatc with the gal lant Kentuckians and their comrades, who were shot at Havana by Concha. The Republic publishes his card, " but without a word of com ment," thus creating the inference that he stands as indefensible after making his defence, as he was generally execrated before it was known he would attempt one. We now ask, whether this man, who has outraged the American character iu his person as a public officer, is longer to be continued in the service of the Government? AVhen the fifty Americans made an appeal to him to visit them, that through him they might communicate with loved friends and afflicted families, for the last time, before being launched into eternity, he should have either dona so, or sold his life in the attempt. If his application to the Captain-General had been made and de nied, he should have gathered around him tho folds of the fiag of his country, and bid them reach his body ihroxnjh it, sooner than be pre I vented from hearing the dying words of his massacred countrymen. I McCobmjck's Reaping Machine, wo lenru ; from (ho London Times, has been making tho I tour of the country, and lias been tried under all circumstances, and on all kinds of ground. The Timet, chronicling the rcults of the tour, says that the general success of the macliinc is es tablished beyond a doubt, and that " there uever was an agricultural implement which, on its first exhibition, obtained the approval of practical farmers so generally ns this has done. Every body wonders that a piece of mechanism so si in - , pie, effective and useful, was never invented before." The English Chitbch.?The Archbishop of Canterbury has given great offence to a large body of the clergy, by denying the exclusive necessity of ordination by the regular bishops of the Queen's Church, and thereby virtually overthrowing the sacerdotal doctrine of the Apostolical succession of the bishops. Flogging in the Army.?In a report to tho English Secretary of War by Lieutenant Colonel Jebb, the Inspector General of military prisons, which has jnst been printed in a parliamentary paper, tho subject of Hogging in the army is brought forward. It seems that imprisonment, in lieu of corporal punishment, has been benefi cial in its operation, notwithstanding the con trary opinion expressed by military officers. A Cincinnati paper suggests the plan of con necting the Alleghany river with Lake Erie by a canal. It thinks by this means the Ohio might be supplied with sufficient water for navigation during the dry seasons.
