Beautiful, Exceedingly.?Newspaper poetry is generally deficient in all the attributes of true poetry, excepting words and rhyme. But the following, by Mrs. Welby, of Louisville, is very beautiful and truth ful in sentiment, even though it lack some of the less important graces of composition : TEACH ME FORGETFULNESS. BY AMELIA. Oh, teach me forgetfulness! teach me to cast From the depths of my spirit all thoughts of the past. My hopes you have blighted ; within my sad heart There lingers but memory?oh ! bid it depart. You have taught me to look on the past with regret, And weep for the future, but not to forget;? You have taught me my love and my folly to rue,? Why did you not teach me forgetfulness, too? Oh, teach me forgettulness!?bid me control The thoughts?the wild thoughts?that have enter'd my soul! f thought your wild passion an innocent flame, That would lift me above, not degrade me to shame! I thought?but enough?the deep folly is o'er? I would turn from the past and remember no more. You have taught me my love and my folly to rue; Then teach me?oh! teach me forgetfulness, too! Oh, teach me forgetfulness!?little I thought, That in seeking my heart, 'twa3 its ruin you sought;? I thought you had won my fond spirit away? To love me, to bless me, and not to betray. Alas ! that such musings should sadden me yet; My heart is all memory?Oh ! bid it forget!? You have taught me my love and my folly to rue ; Then teach me?Oh! teach me forgetfulness, too ! THE ROSE. The Guebers believe that when Abraham was thrown into the fire by Nimrod, the flame turned into a bed of roses. The Turks have an idea that it sprang from the perspiration of Mahomet, and they cause a rose to be sculptured on the monuments of all young women who die unmar ried. The mythological writers say that Apollo caused Rhodante, Queen of Corinth, in conse quence of her extreme beauty, to be changed into a rose. The first rose is said to tyive been given by the God of Love to Hippocrates, the God of Silence, to ecgage him to conceal the conduct of his mother Venus, and hence it was made the symbol of silence. A roee was always placed above the heads of the guests in the ban queting. hall, to banish restraint, and to denote that nothing said there should be repeated else where ; and hence originated the saying, sub rosa, when a secret was to be kept. Rhodes is thought to owe its name to the immense quantify of roses which it produces. AtSalfeay, in France, a cu rious festival is kept up, called the Festival of Roses. A young girl is selected from among three of the most distinguished for female vir tues. Her name is announced from the pulpit. She is afterwards conducted to the church to at tend the vesper service. She was formerly ac customed to open the ball at night with the sig neur; now a present is bestowed upon her, and she is called la rosiere, because she is always adorned with roses. The perfume of this deli cious flower is thus accounted for by the fabulous authors : " Love, at a feast at Olympus, in the midst of a lively dance, overset by a stroke of his wing, a goblet of nectar, which, falling on a rose, embalmed it with the rich fragrance which it still retains.''?Ladies Cabinet. HINDOO FABLE. There is a fable among the Hindoos, that a thief having been detected and condemned to die, thought upon an expedient by which he might be rescued from death. He sent for the jailer, and told him he had an important secret to disclose to the King, and when he had done so he would be ready to die. The King sent for him to know what this secret was. He told him that he knew the art. of producing trees that should bear gold. The King, accompanied by his prime minister, courtiers, and priests, came with the thief to a cer tain spot, where they began their incantations. The thief then produced a piece of gold, declaring that if sown it would produce a tree, every branch of which should bear gold; " but," added he, " this must be put into the ground by a person perfectly honest. I am not so, and therefore pass it to your Majesty." The King replied, " When 1 was a boy I remember taking something from my father, which, although a trifle, prevents my being the proper person. I pass it, therefore, to my prime minister." The latter said, "1 receive the taxes from the people, and, as I am exposed to many temptations, how can I be perfectly hon est 1 I therefore give it to the priest." The priest pleaded the same as to his conduct in re ceiving the sacrifices. At length the thief ex claimed, "I know not why wo should not all four be hanged, since not one of us is honest." The King was so pleased at the ingenuity of the thief that he granted him a pardon. The Leprosy in New Brunswick.?We learn from the last Miramachi Gleaner that a Medical Commission, consisting of Drs. Key, Skene, Toldervy, and Gordon, have been investi gating the nature, origin, and extent of the fright ful and loathsome disease now existing at Traca die, Tabisintac, and Neguack. These gentlemen have decided that the disease is the Greek Ele | phantiasis ; not the Elephantiasis of the Arabians, i but the leprosy of the middle a^es, of tliat descrip j tion which the French designate the Tubercular, and which raged over nearly every part of Europe between the tenth and sixteenth centuries. The disease is contagious, and no person in this Prov ince who has been unfortunate enough to con tract it has as yet been cured. The medical gen tlemen say that the disease has no affininity to scrofula, and that the idea of its having arisen from the poor diet of the French settlors, oi from filthy habits, is not 'correct, as they found it existing in some of the cleanest dwellings, and among the most respectable families. The di* ease appears to have spread rapidly daring the past year, and the Commissioners have seen up wards ol twenty case?, all of which they have traced to one source;?St. John paper. * ? V I " ?" I I ?? Taxtng old Bachelors and Jackasses.? There is a revenue bill before the Mississippi Legislature, which lays an ad volorem tax of 5 per cent, upon all gold and silver plate, and such luxuries, and the samo tax upon trinkets and jewelry worh by women, where they exceed in value $100. Lawyers, physicians, old bachelors, over 25 years of age, and jackaeses, are taxed, and all are embraced in the same sentence with out the intervention even of a comma. It was in vain that one young member of the bar protested against the association ; yet he was so patriotic as to declare his unwillingness to submit to any tax !" This bill ought to pass and remain in force until the entire debt of Mississippi is paid off and repudiation repudiated.?Cin. Com. A Colored Gentleman at the Bar.?We learn from the Portland American that General Fessenden, a day or two since, appeared before the district court, and moved that a colored gen tlerna'i from Boston, who was then with him,'be admitted to practice as an attorney and counsel lor at law in the courts of Maine. The motion was made under the new law, which makes all citizens of good moral character eligible to ad mission. The necessary certificate was produced, but the court refused the motion on the ground that the candidate was not in fact a citizen. A successful application will probably be made at the October term, adds the American. I WRIGHT'S INDIAN VEGETABLE PILLS? For sale by W. ELIOT & CO., mayl- lm Corner of F and 12th streets.

WM. MARSHALL, ap 27? Auctioneer. THE TRUTH SOMETIMES NOT FOUND OUT UNTIL TOO LATE. SUCH is often the case in regard to persons taking medicine. They are induced by plausible rea soning, false representation and doctrines, to employ medicines that, so far from being adapted to their disease or sickness, absolutely increase the symp toms, destroy the constitution, rack the whole system, and bring on a gradual decline, terminating in death ; previous to the fatal termination, however, (but unfortunately too late,) the truth is found out that the pills, mixtures, &c. they have been taking were composed of the most powerful and dangerous ingredients, prepared too by persona knowing nothing of disease or the nature of the medicines they recom mend, depending altogether upon the "general doc trine of such imposters," that their medicines will " kill or cure." Be advised, then, if you find It ne cessary to take 3omc medicine for purifying the blood and clcansing the bowels, to take nothing but Dr. Leidy's justly and deservedly celebrted SaRSAPA R1LLA BLOOD PILLS, the only pills containing Sarsaparilla in the their composition?the safest and best as well as the most effectual that can be taken. Old and young, at all times, without regard to weather, may take them without fear of taking cold, and without restraint from occupation or usual course of living. Upwards of 1,000 certificates iiave been published, various times, of their efficacy. More than 100,000 boxes have been sold in Philadelphia in twelve months. These facts go to prove their value, or so many never would be sold in so short a time, in a place where they are manufactured; this, how ever, arises in part from the fact that the manufac turer of them (Dr. Leidy) is well known at home as a regular physician and apothecary, knowing the true nature of diseases and of the medicines he recom mends, attested by the most celebrated physicians, among whom arc Dr. Nathaniel Chapman, Dr. Wm. Gibson, Dr. W. E. Horner, Dr. Samuel Jackson, Dr. Robert Hare, Dr. P. S. Physic, Dr. T. C. James, Dr. W. P. Dewccs, Dr. J. Redman Coxe, Rev. W. H. Delancy, Robert Adrian, LLD., &c. &.c. Orders f#r Dr. Leidy's BLOOD PILLS are daily received from the North, South, East, and West, and the most flattering accounts, from every direction, of their unparalleled success. A single box (25 cents) may save as many dollars, if taken in time, instead of the dangerous medicines now forced on the pub lic, and by taking which persons so often find it ne cessary at last to take Dr. Leidy's Blood Pills, to counteract their injurious consequences. They are prepared only, and sold Wholesale and Retal, at Dr. Leidy's Health Emporium, No. 191, North Second street, below Vine street, Philadelphia. And by CHARLRS STOTT, apr 25?3m Agent for the District.
