A Victoiy!
The Joy -bells peal a merry tuna
Along the evening air;
The crackling bonfire turn the skj.
All crimson with their glare;
Bold niusic tiih the startled street-.
With mirth-inspiring lound;
The ppirig cannon's reddening Lie ith,
akes thunder-shouts around:
And thousand joyful voices crv,
"Huzza huzza ! a icti.rv
A little girl stooxl rlt il. door,
And with her kitten played;
Less wild and froliclsome than he,
That roy prattling maid.
Suddenly her cheek turns ghostly white:
Her eyes with tears are filled,
And rushing in of doors, she screams
My brother Willie's killed!"
And thousand joyful voices cry,
'Huzza! huzza! a victory!"
A mother sal in thoughtless e.i-c,
A-knilling by the lire,
iMying the needle's thrifty task
With hands that never tire.
She tore her few grey hairs and shrieked,
"My joy on earth is done!
Oh! who will lay mc in the grave
Oh, God! my son! my ton!"
And thousand joyful voices cry,
"llurza! huzza! a victory!"
A youthful wife the threshold crossed,
With matron's treasure blessed :
A smiling infant nestling lay
In slumber at her breast.
She spoke no word, the heaved no sigh,
The widow's tale to tell :
But like a corpse, all white and still, '
Upon tho earth-floor fell,
And thousand joyful voices cry,
"Huzza! huzza! a victory!"
An old weak'man, with head of snow,
And years three scoie and ten,
Looked in upon his cabin-home.
And anguish seized him then.
He helped not wife, nor helpless babe,
Matron nor little maid,
One scalding tear, one choking sob
He knelt him down and prayed.
And thousand joyful voices cry,
'Huzza! huzza! a ictory!"
A Battle Field. For two days a thou
sand cannon had swept it, and three hund
red thousand men had struggled upon it in
the midst of their fire. The grassy plain
was trodden into rnire, on which nearly
twenty, thousand men mangled, torn and
bleeding, had been strewn. Many had
been carried into the city during the night,
but some stark and stiff in death some
resting on their elbows, pale and ghastly,
and calling for help, others writhing in mor
tal agony amid heaps of the slain, still cov
ered the ground. , Others which had been
hastily buried the day before, lay in their
half covered graves here a leg and there:
an arm, sticking out of the ground, while to!
crown the horror of the scene, multitudes of
women were seen roaming the field, not to
bind up the wounded, but to plunder the
dead. They went from heap to heap of
the slain, turning over tho mangled bodies1
and stripping them of their clothing; and
loaded down with their booty, gathered it
in piles besides their corpses., Unmolest
ed in their work they made the shuddering
field still more ghastly by strewing it with
half naked form?. White arms and bodies
stretched across each other, or dragged a
wajT from the heaps they had helped to swell,
made the heart even ot Napoleon turn faint
as he rode over the field of slaughter. Oh,
what a comment on war, and what a cure
for ambition and the love of glory was this
ueiuj j. no icii lucu uiiu iiorror sincKen in
habitants came out from the cellars of their
burnt dwellings and strove to relieve this
woe by burying the dead and succoring the
wounded.- lleadley. .
The Two Roses Heing with my friend
in a garden, we gathered each of us a rose.
He handled his tendei lv, smelt it but cldo.n,
and sparingly. I always kept mine to my
nose, or squeezed it in mv hand, whereby in
a very short time it lost both its color and
sweetness; but his still remained as sweet and
fragrant as if it had been growing upon its
own root. Ihese roses, satd I, are the true
emblems of tho best and sweetest creature
enjoyments in the world, which being mod
erately and cautionsly used and enjoyed,
may lor a long time yield sweetness to the
possessor of them: but if once tho affection
seize too greedily upon them, and squeeze
them too hard they quickly wither in our
hands, nnd we lose thecomlort of them: and
that either through the soul surfeiting upon
them, or their just removal, because of tho
excess of our affections to them. It is a
(xint of excellent wisdom to keep the golden
iridle of moderation upon all tho aflecfions
we exercise on eatthly things. Flavtl.
Mahkiace. The marriage ceremony is
the most interesting spectacle .social life ex
hibits. To see two rational beings, in tho
glow of youth and hope which invests life
with the halo of happiness, appear together
and acknowledge their preference for each
other, voluntarily enter into a league of
perpetual fricmUiiip, and ( all heaen nnd
earth to witness the .sincerity of their solemn
vows to think of the endearing connection,
the important consequences, the final separ
ation, the smiles that kindle into ec.stacy at
their union, must at length be quenched in
tears of the survivor; but while hlo continues,
thev are to participate in the same joys, en
dure the same sorrows, to rejoico nnd weep

Law. The bitterest practical satire upon

taken and arrested upon wnai cnargo uoe t
