Beautiful flowers! wherever y^iloom, With your sort-tinted leaves andn-agrant perfume, Whether in spring ye come forth from the ground, Or when autumn scatters her dead leaves around, Whether in cottage or palace ye dwell, Beautiful flowers ! I love ye well. Behold a young girl, in her mirthful play, Laughing the hours of childhood away, The light winds are waving her sunny hair, And her voicc sounds sweet in the silent air, While her fair hands arc twining, from summer bowers, Wild blooming wreaths of the beautiful flowers. flie scene has now changed, for years have flown ; That gay laughing girl to a woman has grown ; And her lover is there, who fain would tell I he secret their eyes have revealed too well! But flowers he plants in her snowy vest, And their eloquent leaves have his love confest. 'Tis a bridal mom. and loudly swells A merry peal from the old church bells; The white rob'd bride is smiling now, 'Neath a budding wreath from the orange bough ; And bright eyed maidens before her strew Beautiful flowers of every hue. There's a voice of sorrow for time hath fled, A wife and a mother lie cold and dead ; They've laid her to sleep in her endless rest; With a young babe clasp'd to her marble breast; And the flowers are there with their perfum'd breath, Decking the bud and blossom in death. fn the green church yard is a lonely spot, Where the joyous sunshine enters not; Deep in the gloom of the cypre# shade, There is her home in the cold earth made, And over her still the sweet flowers bloom, They were near her in life and forsake not her tomb. Beautiful flowers! ye seem to be Linked in the fond ties of memory ? Companionsye were to our childhood's day, Companions ye are to our lifeless clay, And barren and drear were this wide world of ours, Lacking the sinile Of the beautiful flowers! F. E. B. North Yarmouth, Mc., Oct. 24th 1846. C OM MUNICAT ION s7 NIGHT RAMBLES IN WASHINGTON. It was a cold and disagreeable night in the Spring of '44, when every surrounding object of nature was dressed in the gloomy garb of those cheerless nights which carry with them sorrow and anguish into the habitations ol the disconsolate and poverty-stricken, who alone feel the sting of penury and want?a night which appeared to envelope earth and heaven in uni versal gloom. Dark and lowering lay the tempest over the scenc 1 am now about to describe. The object was concealed lroni human vision. The clouds seemed as if unable longer to contain the liquid element, and gave way at last, pouring down the heavy shower through the im penetrable gloom, upon reposing nature. It was a solemn, a melancholy hour; tlie dead hour of midnight; when not a sound was to be'heard save the slow and steady step of the watchmen, whose keen vision, seeming to pierce even the thick darkness Sur rounding them, fell upon an object which attracted their deepest attention and challenged their astonish ment. They paused a moment. The object seemed motionless?dead They ventured to touch it, as if actuated by a supernatural impulse, and the mystery was revealed. It was a human being?an unfortu nate woman. Their minds revolted to lind her there, familiar as they were with such scencs. Their sym pathies for the desolate one were aroused. " Here, thought they, " is a woman lying, at the dead hour of night, upon the cold, damp ground. How came sTie here?" and many such reflections passed througli'thoir minds. Further developementsincreased their wondar. Her attire proved to be of the most costly material. Her cloak was suc.h as are generally worn by t he rich, but literally torn to pieces But see! the puzzle is solved? she is (bunk?yes DRUNK! She who, by a prudent, and virtuous course of life, would have been <mi orna-1 inent to society, a gem in the refined associations of j life?she is become an outcast by reason of intoxica-1 tion! She might have exhibited the beautiful graces of virtuous female character; but our hearts sink, and we become disgusstd, as we behold the degraded con dition in wiiiijh she now appears. The watchmcn lifted her up out of the "? horrible pit" into which she had fallen, and conducted her to the watch house Now the scene changes. The unfortunate one | throws herself upon her couch?sueh an one as the 1 house for stragglers afforded?such an one as those [ unhappy beings, similarly situated with the one we are speaking of, spend many a quictless hour upon. Here, lor the space of an hour, she lay in a state of in sensibility, when, suddenly, as if awaking from a dream, she asked for a little water to quench the rag ing, thirst created by the poisonous beverage slie had drank. Such a thirst always accompanies the drunk ard. O, the vice of drunkenness! It strikes a death blow at tlie best interests of any community where it is suffered to exist. An instance of its effects; a sad instance; is before us. Here is one who, by her own act and deed, has turned her admiring nature into brutishncss. She gave the following narrative: My name is , (her name before mar riage.) I came from , the place where I was born, the offspring of parents who loved me with a ten der affection. Upon me was staid their hope of future happiness, doating upon me, the idol of their hearts, they suffered me to indulge in all the pleasures of the day, which one would suppose would have had a ten dency to lure me into scenes of vanity; but these in nocent pleasures had no such effect on me, and manv are the happy hours 1 have spent in this way, with the young of my acquauitance, and the dear associates of my youthful days. A stranger to care,l had never felt one pang of sorrow or disappointment. Thus pass ed the golden hours of my life away in virgin inno cence; and oh, when I contemplate the past; when I cast my thoughts back upon the scenes of my youth, the home of my childhood, and retrospect the hours of my past happiness and joy, my heart shrinks within me?alas, they are gone, never to return; but oh, the recollection pierces ine through with a thousand sor rows?my happiness is gone forever. The society in which 1 moved brought me manv new acquaintances, and on one occasion, I shall never forget it, I was introduced to a young man by the name of - ?, from a neighboring city While in his company, I experienced some strange and unusual sensations?a passion, which developed itself to me with such irresistible power as to take en tire possession of all the sensibilities of my youthful uature, and I at once became captive to one of the most endearing passions that can actuate the human heart. What tongue can express, what mind can conceive the bliss of a tender and reciprocal affection. I loved liim then?I love him still, above all other objects on earth, and shall so continue to do until my latest breath, i loved him for his many virtues; lor lua warm attachment tome; the kind, tendef, artee tionate conduct which he manifested towards me un der every circumstance and upon all occasions?but these unwelcome remembrances are bitter drugs in iny cupol misery, which only serve to rob ine of the little I comfort remaining to me, and make me miserable be yond expression. Here, overcome with emotion, she paused a moment and then proceeded ? After our marriage, we proceeded to our residence, where we lived together in uninterrupted harmony. It was in ???, where the bliss of conjugal union with me had its beginning, and when' were consum mated the. joys of domestic life. The associations of iny husband were extensive asid most respectable, and many are the happy hours that I have spent in the social circle, with our friends and acquaintances. The time passed pleasantly away, for it pleased kind heaven to smile upon us, and to bless us with plenty, prosper ity, and happiness. But why should I dwell longer upon that happy season of ray life! My story is one of wo. We are too apt, whilst rambling along the pleas ing walks of life, plucking from the blooming foliage of nature the sweet flowers that strew our pathway, to imagine our happiness so durable that nothing can dispossess us of our earthly blessings! Such were the convictions of my youthful mind; but sad experience has now changed the aspect! Yes, when I was attend ing to the duties and enjoying the tranquil blessing of domestic life?in an unguarded moment, when 1 least suspected danger near?a villain, yea, a demon, in the shape of a man, with his alluring enchantments and villainous devices; like Satan, who inthc lovely walks of Paradise beguiled our first parents; so this man, the pretended friend of my husband, seduced me! and bore' me from him. Yes, it was with that wretch 1 left my eaceful abode, the home of my happiness. () aban oned mother! O my tender child, the oflspring of my youth! O the companion of my bosom! Will the sun of heaven ever dawn upon the morn that 1 can call liim mine again?that will restore me to my once fond and affectionate family? will these eves ever again Ih' permitted to gaze upon the manly lace of my once kind and tender husband? No, no, the fearful forebodings of a guilt-stricken conscience warn me of our linal and eternal separation. 1 can but invoke the cold hand of death to put an end to my suflerings?to remove me from this wearisome scene of ruined prospects and blighted hopes, perhaps, to a place still more awf'nl? where the light of heaven will never east one ray ol hope upon my unhappy condition?where mercy is a stranger?where the enduring remembrance of one act of disobedience will never cease to torment and vex my soul. The above facts should teach all to avoid that de mon?1 >runkenness, in whose train follows every vice. COLUMBIAN WVMILW,' From a volume of Sketches. JOHN RANDOLPH. | I remember some years since to have seen John Randolph in Baltimore. I had frequently read and heard description of him, and one day, as f was standing in market, now Baltimore street, I remarked a tall, thin, unique looking being hurrying towurds me with a quick impatient step, evidently much annoyed by a crowd of boys who were following on his heels, not in the obstreperous mirth with which they would have followed a crazy or drunken man, or organ grinder and his monkey, but in the si lent, curious wonder with which theywould have haunted a Chinese decked in full cos tume. I instantly knew the individual to be John Randolph, from the descriptions. I therefore advanced towards him to make a full observation of his person without violating the rules of courtesy in slopping to gaze at him. As he approached, he oc casionally turned toward the boys willi an angry glance, but without saying anything, and then hurrying on as if to outstrip them, but it would not do. They followed close on behind the orator, each one observing him so intently that each one said nothing fo his companions. Just before I met him lie stopped a Mr. I)., a Cashier of one of the Banks, and said to be as odd a fish as John himself. I loitered in a store close by, and, unnoticed, remarked the Roanoke orator for a considerable time, and really, he was the strangest looking being 1 ever beheld. His long thin legs, about as thick as a strong walking cane, and of much such a shape, were encased in a pair of light small clothes, so tight that they seemed part and parcel of the limbs of the wearer. [laud some white stockings were fastened with great tidiness at the knees, by a small gold buckle, and over them, coming about half way up ihc calf, were a pair of what, I be lieve, are called hose, coarse and country knit. He wore short?they were old fash ioned, and fastened only with buckles? huge ones. He trod like an Indian, without turning his toes out, planking ihem down straight ahead, ll was the fashion in those days to wear a fan tailed coal, with a small collar and buttons far apart behind, and a few on the breast. Mr. R\s were the re verse of all this, and instead of his coat be ing fan tailed, it is what, we believe the knights of the needle call swallow tailed. The buttons behind were in kissing prox imity, and they sat together as close on the breast of the garment as the feasters at a crowded public festival. Mis waist was re markably slender; so slender that, as he stood with arms akimbo, he could easily, as I thought, with his long and bony fin gers, have spanned if. Around him, his coat, which was very tight, was held together by one button, atjd in consequence, an inch or more of tape, lo which it was attached, wan perceptible where it was pulled through the cloth. He wore a large white cravat, in which hi* chin was occasionally buried, as he moved his head in conversation; no shirt collar ^was perceptible; every other person seemed to pride himself on the size of his, as they were then worn large. Mr. Randolph's complexion wap precisely that of a mummy ?withered, saffron, dry, and bloodless.? ^ oil could not have placed a pin's point on liis facr where you would not have touched a wrinkle. Ilia lips were thin, compressed and colorless; the chin, beardless ag a boy's, was broad for the size of his face, which was small; his nose was straight, with no thing remarkable in it, except it was too short. He wore a fur cap which he look off, standing a few minutes uncovered. I observed that his head was quite small; a characteristic whirh is said to have marked many men of talent. Byron and Chief Jus tice Marshall, for instance. Mary.?Who does not love the common yet beautiful name, Mary ? It is from the Hebrew, and means a 'tear drop.' What sweet and joyous hours of other days? what pleasing associations does not the ve ry name call up in every heart! Who knows aught ill of Mary ! Who that does not love the name? If there is any thing gentle and valued and womanly, what Ma ry (hat possesses it not? Was it not Mary who was 'Last al die cross, And earliest at the grave?' And was not Mary the mother of our Sa viour of the world ? The Work of the Rumsei.ler. A friend informs us of an affai* which happened recent ly at Hollidaysburg, in this state. A man sold a horse to his son and was paid. Some time afterwards, while under the influence of liquor, he told his son, who was on the horse at the door of his father's house that it was time the horse was paid for. The son told him it was paid for, and that he had a receipt. The father became enraged, and went into the house and brought out a double barreled gun, and shot the horse and then his rider, killing them both! He is in jail awaiting his trial. If the rumseller is not a murderer, how far is he from in a case such as this ? (Pledge and Standard. A Oood Suggestion. Il is proposed by se veral of our prominent temperance men, lo pe tition the Common Council to close the grog shop doors and widows on the Sabbath, and also to close all the groggeries each night in the week, after 11 o'clock. The plan is cer tainly a good one, and we hope to see it promptly and extensively carried out.?Cata ract. The Albany, N. Y.f Knickerbocker, tells of a drunken fellow who, being brought before the Police and not able to give his name, was christened John Doe, ami locked up to get so ber. Dropped Dead.?On Tuesday last, one of the waiters at the Aslor Hotel dropped dead whilst waiting on the table. As he was falling he exclaimed to his fellows? "Good bye, boys?I'm going !" and in stantly expired. WASIIUNGTON AGENCY OF TRK .'Etna Fire Insurance Company, of Ilart fonI, Connecticut.
