Do you know the nice young man That lives across the way? The accomplish'd lady, Julia Van, He's courting her they say; Yes, he's a noble fellow, So every body thinks, But then he will get mellow, What a pity it is he drinks! He is a man of gifted mind, His heart's nn earthly heaven; And every feeling is refined, That God to him hnth given; No intellect is quicker! In every thing he thinks. But, ah! ho loves the liquor, What a pity it is he drinks! I am told that Juliet now Is jealous of the youth; Not jealous of his solemn vow, For he's a mnn of truth; But jealous of his throttle, For every body thinks He loves the brandy bottle, What a pity it is he drinks! He's a very moral man, And honest too, they sny; He's very generous when ho can Give any thing away; But then at church he's moddy, And every person thinks He takes too much of toddy, What a pity it is he drinks! LINES TO Go ask the planets why they roll Forever on their endless round; The needle why townrds tho pole, 'Tie always constant found. Go ask tho ocean, why her tide3 Perpetually ebbs end flows; The Andes, why his lowering sides Are ever wrapt in snows. Go ask the ear, why raptures thrill Its mazy labarynths nlong, When from your lips you pour, at will, The melody of song. Go ask the clouds, that, bath'd in gold, Float calmly in the purple west, Why watch they as the day grows old, And sinks the sun to rest. When these have answered, then my heart Shall tell, why it must ever love, While thought and sense are given it, From the Great Soul above. From tho Washington Union. A New Mexican Outuaoe. We have just heard of a new Mexican outrage, the particulars of which will doubtless be laid before our government in the next des patches from Mr. Shannon. Mr. Alexander Atochn, a citizen of the United Stales, engnged in extensive com mercial enterprises in the capital, where he has resided lor several years, a wealthy American merchant, was suddenly ordered to quit the Republic, in the short space ol eight days. Mr. Atocha immediately applied to our minister lor protection, nnd a strong re monstrance was forthwith despatched by him to the Mexican government. But the allotted period of eigtit days passed, without a reply, and Mr. Alocha was forced to a bandon his dwelling, furnished in the mojt tasteful and expensive manner, to relinquish his lucrative commercial business, and with a large family, to depart dr Vera Cruz, whence he sailed for New York, where he has nrrived. It is a question of politicnl import'ince that should at once be decided by this case, whether our inoffensive citizens are to be thus driven, like dogs from Mexico, without even the allegation ol cuilt or olitsnce a- gainst her laws. Mexico. The following, which we cut from the N. Y. Journal of Commerce o1 the 21st, is not us late as the news we pub lished by the way of New Orleans, but con firms what was there stated: We learn from Capt. Baker, of the bark Falmouth, which left Mantanzas May 10th, that the English mail steamer from Vera Cruz, arrived at Havana 7th inst., with de spatches for Mr. Crawford, the British con sul, advising him that the boundary line of Texas had been defined and settled, and her independence guaranteed by a convention between England, France and Mexico. Ac counts by the same arrival state tint Santa Anna has been reduced to the alternative of ten years' banishment, or a trial for malad ministration. The above intelligence must have left Vera Cruz on ihe 2d or 3d inst., which is ten days later thnn our previous advices. The joint guarantee of Texan indepen dence, with a specification of boundaries, is a more definite form of the propositions sent to Texas from Mexico some weeks since, per British frigate Euridieo. The Texan government objected to that propo sition, that it specified no particular bounda ry; but intimated that if this objection was obviated, and a liberal boundary specified, the proposition would do presented to the people lor adoption or rejection, simultan eously with the annexation project. We presume the line has been placed pretty far west, in hope of inducing the Texians to ac quiesce, but it is in vain they are almost unanimous for annexation, ana annexation will be the result. I'rom our New York Correspondent Nf.w York, May 15, 1845. Sir: Enclosed I send you a commercial letter from a highly respectable mercantile firm in Liverpool, from wlii'-h you are at liberty to make such extracts ns you choose. Accompanying the same is a Liverpool price current, both of which were received by the late steamer. Since the races, the crowd of visiters nt traded to New York by that occurrence have thinned off"; still, this is a season of the year when the city begins to be filled with southern travellers, merchants, &c, consid erable numbers of whom are found nt our principal hotels. Y'ou will see an interesting letter from the correspondence in the Journal of Com merr.e, dated at Basic, in Switzerland, giv ing nn account of the snd events of the de p'orable civil war raging in that country. Such a war, under such circumstances, ex cited as it has been by dilTurences in religious opinions, is disgraceful to the age in w hich we live. We had been led to suppose the time had passed among civilized nation", when men are led to shed each others' blood for conscience sake for the right of worship ping God according to their sense of right nnd wrong. Religious civil wars aro, of all others, the most suvnge and revengeful. Such war? have tended to make morn infidels, thnn anything else connected with the move ments of sects professedly Chris'.inn in their tenets. How those who profess to follow the meek, self-denying, pence-loving, aiid peace-tecching Savour of the world, enn imagine themselves to be worthy disciples of him Rnd his cross, while shedding the blood of a brother, because ho is not of the same mode of faith, is a puzzle to the human understanding. Where blood is shed about religous tenets, the religion of Christ is out of the question. Whenever the church is fastened on to the state, ambition nnd cor ruption usurp the throne, both of common sense and true piety, and erect in their stead iron rules of empty coremonies, ad ministered in a manner to aid the decrees of tyranny and oppression. No despotism equals that enforced under the pretended sanctions of God and the Bible. No crime so great, no desolation and ruin brought up on a people and country so cnlnmitoii', that may not find apology nnd justification be neath specious pleas of "God's will and God's word commanded it." Heaven fore fend and protect the free institutions of our happy country from the grasp and conlrnl of such damning fannticism. Notwithstanding our shipping interests is much depressed, the city ol New York is improving and growing in'buildings. Much of this improvement is caused by the in vestment of foreign capital in renl estate. It is suid Louis Phillippe, Kinu of the French, through the agency of the French consul, or other parlies, has inves'ed large sums in real estate in this city. A large and splen did new block of houses in Broadway, near Uuann street, are said to have been erected j with the money of the French King. This j opinion gains strength from the fuctlhat tho i legislature ol Albany recently passed a law authorizing the French consul 'at this port to hold property without limitation as to time or amount. The agents of several West India es tates have also invested considerable sums of money in real estate in New Y'ork. Some lew wealthy planters of Luiiana also own some valuable blocks of buildings in New York, among whom is Mr. Pack wood. Real estate, (that is productive,) accord ing to its style and location, readily yields from seven to ten per cent ., from which one per cent, may be deducted to pay city and State taxss, and for repairs, &c. Most com nmnly, the use of Croton wuter is paid for ly the tenants, which, for an ordinary threestory house and basement, occupied by a private family, amounts to 10 per an num. Jf by the keeper of a board'ng house, 820 per nrnum, Sen. Since the introduction of Crotcn water, policies of insurance have been greatly re duced. On a three-story hrick house, with base ment and slate roof, in a good neighbor hood, occupied by a private family, the in surance is only one-fith' of one per cent., or twenty c-n'ts on tho 100 worth, which is very moderate. Fires have been lessened in number nnd destructiveness by the introduction of Rti a bundant supply of water. The Union. The Albany Daily American Citizen thus describes one of the wonders of the anima! kingdom now exhibiting in that city: It is the pretrified vertebrn? of n monster called by the naturalists the Zuvsjlocon a creature which must have been half alliga tor an 1 hall whale. It was discovered em bedded in a chalk formation on tho banks of ihe Alabama river, and was boxed up and sent to professor Emmons, of this city. The vertebrae, extending from a portion of the head to the tip of the tail, is eiehty feel in length as il lies upon the floor ! The creat ure musi have been, in lile, from ninety to one hundred (eel long. Sam Slick says, 'I am a great friend to delicacy, for delicacy is a feminine varttio; and to decency, for decency is a manly vartuc; but as for squcomishncss rat me! if it dors'nt mako me sick! Who take? No plaster can bo made strong enough to draw genuine tears from a hypocrite's eyes money from a miser generosity from selfishness truth from a slanderer honor from a thief or a prize in the lot tery. . A1AI.TESE MARRIAGES. The Maltese women lend a very retired life, they are never allowed to walk out without ilv ir pirents, nor to speak to any mnn until they nre ma-iied, the ncquain-ant-c with their husbands being made en liicly afterwards. When n man wishes to marry he goes to the father of the lndy he admires, (who, p.erhnp., ,c may have seen once or twice through nn open door or window.) stating what he is worth, and what nre his fxpectatinns. If the father and he are mutuully satisfied, the state of the case is made known to the girl, who t icldom averse to changing her condition. Rings nre then exrhnngedi nnd ihe young man is invited to dinner and to walk out with all the family, brothers and sisters in cluded, however many there may be. The next time they meet is generally in church to be united. ' The fnther of the I ride gives the trnvsteau part of the household furni ture and plate if he be rich enough. I was much amused when Vicenza, talking of her .'hildren,the two bisrgest of whom are in the Unsa lndustria, s;iid she thought that the eldest pirl, who is just thirteen years old, would be married in a year or two, for now they were allowed to come out of the school for three Jnys every six months and during that time very likely some ynuntr man might see and admire her. I Inuohed at the idea of such a short acquaintance, but she told me, that, at the last holidays, sixty girls were married, and the rule had been made on purpose to givp them the opportunity, for during the rest of the year they are never allowed to leave the walls; and even their pnrents, excepting on some urgent ne cess'ty , are only permitted to see their chil dren nt certain hours on Sundav. Major iind Mrs. Griffith's Journey. DtriEcT Payment. An honest man ha? no objections to pay for value received. He requires no round about way to make the payment, but prefers the diri-cl modp. He has no objection to pay his butcher direct ly, and therefore does not require the land lord to put on twelve per cent, more rent in order that the landlord may pay the butchrr for lha tenant, and so on. Govern ment is valuable if free. Our own is free, or passes for it. lu administration is val uable to tis. We enjoy it, and we should pay tor it. Ilow? The sooner we learn to pay for it directly, the more economical will it be. This, however, is prospective argument, and may in the course of another generation or two, he recognised as true. Philadelphia Is-lrr. LOOK AHEAD! WhiUt we hope for peace, it is as well fdr us to keep our eyes open to all the military t movements of the dwy. The only difficul ty is, :inong the rumors we hear, to know what is furt, and what is fiction. With the view of showing th'.t the press is wide a wake, we copy the two following para graphs from the new spapers, without pre tending to vouch for their authenticity. Waumkk Preparations. The British Whig, published in Kingston, Canada West, mentions the following rumors of warlike preparations iht te, Uit does not vouch for lliem: 'Eiht reaimrnts are ordered out imme diatvly to Canada, nnd those going home this summer are to stay till further orders. In ordor t encourage the recruiting of soldier.- for the regiments of the line, the stan dard Ims bf-n rdiKed one inch. (This is a fact.) The d.mk-yard at Kingston is forthwith ti be put ( n a full establishment, and an admiralty commissioner will assume the command, ind"'r whose superintendence three iron steam frigate..-, of the largest c'ass, arc to be built. Mr. Tusker, the admiralty builder, the architect who built the Chero kee, arrived out in the ILbernia, and by this day's steamer is a".'ui!lv at his past in Kingston.''

The Albany Argu of Wednesday atternoon says: "The act in rtla'i'""i n the canals passed both lit. uses by con-i lerible majorities, but was returned with tho Governor's veto. It was ih'n rejected for the want of constitu tional require ment, a majority of two-thirds of thp members present. This hi:! appro priated the ascertained surplus revpnue of the canals, f!197,000, after complying, ac cording to th language cT this act, with the pledg"s and gmranties of the act of 1842, and paying :00 000 to the general fund, for thi prr-servaMnn or completion of unfin irhed portions of the Genesse Vulley and Illack River canals, for bringing into use" such works on the Enlarged Erie Canal as 'he Cann! Cvjiivnissiotiers shall decide will t est promote the interests of the (Mate, and for the rcconsini'Mion of certain lock, &c.
