From the Metropolitan Magazine.
SONG OF THE WATER-DRINKER.
Oh! water for tne! Bright water for me
And wine foi the tremulous dtbaacbee
It coo'.eth the brow, it cooleth the brain,
It maketh the faint one ttrong a*aio
I, ro-e* o'er the "asa
AH fre*hncji,l:ke ia&nt purity.
Oh water, bright water, for ine, for me!
Fill to the brim! Fill, 611 to the brim!
Let the flowing chrystal ki» the rim'.
1'or my hand it steady, roy eye is true,
For I, like the Gawe.f, drink nsjght bat dew.
O water, bright water's t. rniae of wealth,
And the otti it yie'.deth are vigor and health,
Eo watet. pure water, fo* »e, for me!
And wiae fo: the tremulous dtbaacbee!
Fill again to the b.-irr.
1 again to the brim'.
For water Krengtheneth life and iimb
To the days of the aged it addeth length,
To the might of the strong it addeth r.rength,
It freshens the heajt, it brightens tfce fight,
'Tis like quafciig a gb'et of rooming 1'ght.
Ho
w-,er,
I tri'l drink nought but thee,
TlWJ pare*'! of health a. e.isigj!
When o'er the hills, like a fclatUome bride,
Morning walk* forth in her beauty's pride,
And, leading a band of la»ihing hours,
Bruthea the dew from the morning 6o*en!
Oh chaerily then my voice is heard,
Mingling witk that of the soaring bird,
Who flingeth abroad hi* matins loud,
As he freshens his wing in the cold gray cloud

with unabated fury for six months,and
the city depopulating, hour by hour,
from the double effect of death and fear.
Seventeen thousand of the Greek in
habitants have fled—the Armenian pa
triarch has lately delivered fifteen
thousand passports in the course of a
few days, and the general population
has been thus diminished by upwards
of one hundred thousand since last

it has spread westward on both shores.

tne Mediterranean ports, our criminal
disregard of precaution, the still more
criminal avidity of our commerce for
gain, in all quarters, and at all risks,

other country to this most dreadful of
all scourges. Nothing but the hand of
Providence could have hitherto prc

"There is a rumor that Santa Anna
