Four not the voice of grief
Above the sable bier !
The weary spirit finds relief
In some more hallowed sphere.
"Whatrecks it that the lip
Hath lost its thrilling hue
Untainted was their felI.'sliiP
As blushing roso "d dew
And now too toon n creeping thing,
"Will, like tccch, there feed and cling!
yct weop not for the dead
Who early pas3 away.
Ere hope and joy and youth have fled,
' Ere woo has wrought decay?
Better to die in youth,
When life is green and bright,
Than when the heart has !ost its truth
la age and sorrows night
Then voe9 and years around us throng
And death's chill grasp is on U3 long.
Life is a rifled flower
"When love's pure visions fade
A broken spell a faded hour
An echo and a shade!
The poet's thirst for fame,
And syren beauty's kiss,
Ambition's height, and honor's name
But yield a phantom bliss
And man turns back from every goal
Hirsting- for some high bliss of soul!
"Would I had died when young!
How many burning tears,
And wasted boes and severed tic3
Had spared my after years!
And she on whose pale brow,
The damp and cold earth lies,
Whore pure heart in its virgin glow
Was mirrored in dark eyes!
Would I bad faded soon with her.
My boyhood's earliest worshipper?
I'our not the voice of wo!
Shed not the burning tear
When spirits fcpm the cold earth go
Too bright to linger here! ';
Unsullied let them pass
Into oblivion's tomb
Like snow-flake3 melting in the sea .
When rife with vestal bloom.
Then strew fresh flowers above the grave,
And let the tall grass o'er it wave!

A Cherokee Indian, confined by Ccn.

before tho Judge on a writ of Habeas

length, and with considerable ability on
the part of the prisoner, by Jude Roane
of North Carolina, and J. F. Giliespy,

of the application by Ccn. Scott, who ap

l'EXDIX. These works have been published by
us for six years. Thero are now more
subscribers lor them, probably, than for
any other paper published in Hie United
States; certainly more than there arc for
any other paper published in this District.
This large and increasing subscription is
conclusive evidence of their useiulnes,s.
They are invaluable to all who feel an in
terest in tho proceedings of Congress.
No other publication gives them so full,
nor half socheap. It is, indeed, the cheap
est publication in the United States per-
haps in the woikt. Uisr position at me
to popular music; and the six remaining to
the political, foreign and general news of
the day. . Under the political head, ques
tions of high political interest will at all
times be temperately discussed; but the
general parpose of this department will be
the careful presentation ot an events anu
incidents of political moment occuring
from time to time in the several states, or
at tho seat of government. All conven
tions, nominations, &c. of importance, will
be duly noted, and full returns of all elec
tions occurring throughout the Union will
bo regularly compiled for present informa
tion and future reference. Tho general
intelligence will likewise be prepared with
an eye rather to correctness and utility
than tho gratification of a voracious and
indiscriminate-appetite for the novel nnd
the marvellous. In fine, it will be the
aim of the editors- to present a useful pub
lic journal, which may be perused with
profit and satisfaction by persons of all
pure taste and all intelligent classes. The
generous patronage heretofore extended to
it afford an evidence that their labors have
not been in vain.

A pianoforte is a most agreeable object.
It is a piece of furniture with a soul in
it, ready to wake at a touch, and charm us
with invisible beauty. Open or shut, it j
is pleasant to look at; but open it looks
best, smiling at us with its ivory, like the
mouth of a sweet singer. The keys of a
pianoforte are, of themselves, an agreeable
spectacle an elegance not sufficiently
prized for their aspect, because they are
so common, but well worth regarding even
in that respect. It is one of the advan
tages of this instrument to the learner,
that there is no discord to go through in
getting at a tone. Tone is ready-made.
The finger touches tho key, and there is
music at once. Another and greater ad
vantage is that it contains a whole concert
"within itself, for you mav play with all
your fingers, and then everyone performs,
the part of a separate instrument. True,
it will not compare with a real concert
iwith the rising winds of an orchestra; but
in no single instrument, except the organ,
can you have such a combination of sound,
and tho organ itself cannot do for you
what the pianoforte does. There are su
perfine cars that profess not to be able to
endure a pianoforte after a concert; others
that always find it fo he out of tune; and
more who veil their insensibility to music
in general, by protesting against "ever
lasting tinkles," and school girl affectation
or sulliness. It is not a pleasure, which
a man would select, to be obliged to fit--
ncss affectation of any sort, much less sul-
leness, or any other absurdity With re
spect to pianafortes not perfectly in tune,
' it is a curious fact in the history of sound,
that.no instrumeut is ever perfectly
in tune. Even tho heavenly charmer,
musick, being partly of earth as well as
of heaven, partakes the common imper
fection of things sublunary. It is there
fore, possible to have senses two fine for
it, if we are to be alwa) a sensible to this
imperfection; to

to judge at wnat nice poinx oi impencc
tion the disgust is to uegm, wnere no uis
gust is felt by the general ear? As to
those who, notwithstanding their pretend
ed love of music at other times, are so rea
dy to talk of "jingling'" and "tingling."
whenever they hear a pianoforte, or a
poor girl at her lesson, they have really
no love of music whatever; and only pro
daim as much to those who understand
them. They are among the wiseacres
who are always proving their spleen at
the expense of their wit.

powerful commentary upon those complex
questions of policy and party which so
frequently distract the country, and upon
which, imperfectly understood as they
often are by friends, and misrepresented
and distorted as they never fail to be by
political opponents, it is of the utmost im
