We watched her broathing through tho night, Her breathing soft and low, And on her breast the wave of life Kept heaving to and fro. So silently wo seemed to speak, So slowly moved about, As we had lent her half our powers, To eke bcr being out. Our very hopes belied our fears, Our fears our hopes belied; We thought her dying when sho slept, And sleeping when she died. For when the morn come dim and sad, And chill with early showers, Her quiet eyelids closed; she had Another morn than ours. MACHINE POETRY WHAT I LOVE. I love to see a flock of sliepp, All feeding on the mountain; I love to see a drunkard drink From out h living fountain; At first upon his knees he gets, And then he sticks his nose in, But soon he slips, end then, ker souso, His head and shoulders goes in. I love to see, with all my heart, The sun shine while 'tis raining; I love to see a row kicked up At a militia training. 1 love to see a table watched By civil, careful waiters; 1 love to see them fotch along The biggest kind of latcrs. I love (0 seo the industrious bees All busy making honey; I love to see a man contrive Always lo lay up money; I love to see a lot of chaps Engaged in midnight revel; I love to see them let out loose, And go it like the d 1 ! I love (0 hear old women talk They do some lofty talking, I love to see defaulters walk They do some tallish walking; I love to hear at dead of night A glorious catterwauling, And O, I love to hear at Church A lot of babies squalling. I love to see two colored gents Call one another "niggers"' I love to see the ladies run, They cut such curious figures; I love my lassy more than all I love her, Oil most dearly! I love to hug and kiss her oh, It makes mo feel so qucerly! OUT OF HEART. BY ELLEN AS II TON. "Why so sad, Ernest?" said the young wife to her husband, affectionately twining her arm around his neck and kissing him. He looked up with a sad smilo and re plied, 'I am almost out of heart, Mary. I think of all pursuits, a profession is the worst. Here have 1 been week after week and month after moth and I may soon say year after year waiting for practice, yet without success. A lawyer may vol unteer in a celebrated case, and somakc himself known; but a physician must sit patiently in his office, and, if unknown, see men without half his acquirements rolling in wealth, while he perhaps is starv ing. And it will soon come to that." he added bitterly, "if I do not get employ ment." An unbidden tear started into tho wife's eye, but she strove to smile, and said, "Do not despond, Ernest. I know you have been unfortunate so fur, but you have talents and knowledge to make your way, as soon as you get a start. And, depend upon it," she added with a cheerful look, "that will come when you least expect it." "So you have told mo often; but the lucky hour has never come," said her hus band dcspondingly. "And now every cent of my little for tune has been expended, and our credit will soon bo gone when it is found wc do not pay. What then is to become of us?" Ernest was in a mood which the most sanguine sometimes experience, when dis appointment after disappointment has crushed tho spirit, and the voice of hope is no longer heard within. His wife would have given way to tears, if she had been alone; but she felt the necessity of sustain ing him and auswered cheerfully. "And what if every cent is gone? Have no fear that we shall starve. God sent ravens to feed Elijah, and he will vet inter pose for our aid. Trust in bun, dear brnest. The husband felt rebuked, as sho thus spoke and answered less dcspondingly, "But really, Mary, this want of success would try tlio stoutest spirit. The me chanic, the day laborer, the humblest farmer is sure of his food and raiment, but I, after having spent years in study, have wasted years besides waiting for practice: and now when all my fortune is gone, if I re sort to other means of livelihood I lose all I havo spent, both time and money, and must forever abandon tho idea of pursuing my profession. It is too hard!" and he arose and walked tho room with rapid strides. His wife sighed, and remained silent. Dut after a moment or two sho arose, went up to him, and fondly encircling him with her arm said, "Dear Ernest you must not worry your self so. You think it painful for me lo bear poverty, I know, or you would not take it so hard; but a woman never regards such things when she loves. A crust of bread, a log-cabin would be preferable to me if I shared them wilhyou, than a palace with any other. But it will not como to this. Something within assures mo you will yet be great and rich. Have patience only for a little while longer. There there is a knock at tho door now it may bo for you." As if her words had been prophetic, the little girl their only servant, appeared at this crisis and said the doctor was wanted in a great hurry. With an exulting smile his wife ran for his hat, to await his return. It was almost the first summons that the young physician had received, though he had resided in the village for more than a year. Tho place, too, was large and populous, but there were several medical men of large practice, and all these com bined to put down their young rival. More than once heretofore Ernest would have abandoned the field in despair; but his young wife cheered and encouraged him. though sometimes her own heart felt ready to give up. Mary Linwood was, indeed, that greatest of all blessings, a good wife: she sympathized with her husband, econ omized to the utmost, and by her sanguine words chased despondency from his heart. Hour after hour she sat there awaiting her husband, yet still he came not. At last darkness set in, and she began to feel uneasy. She was about rising to go to the door, w hen she heard her husband's foot on the step, and hurrying out she met him in the hall. "God bless you, Mary, for an nngel ns you are," were his first words. "If it had not been for you, I should have given up long ago, and now, my fortune is made." Breathless with anxiety to hear all, yet not unmindful of his probably wearied condition, Mary hurried her husband into the little sitting room where the tea-things were laid, and began to pour out the re freshing beverage with a trembling hand, while Ernest told the history of his day's absence. "I found," he said, "I was sent for to old Governor Huston's the richest and most influential man, you know, in the country and when I got there I learned, to my sur prise, that the governor had been thrown from his carriage and was thought to be dying. All the physicians of the town had been sent for, one after another, but none could aid him. In despair, his wife, with out orders, had sent for me. I saw his only chance for life depended on a new and difficult operation, which none of the older physicians had ever seen performed. Luckily 1 had assisted at one when a stu dent. I stated what I thought could be done. The old governor is a man of iron nerves and quick resolution; so, when he heard the others say they could do nothing for him, he determined to commit himself to my hands. I succeeded beyond my hopes; even the other physicians were forced to acknowledge my skill; and there is now nothing but care required to make my patient as well as ever. On parting he put this roll of notes in my hand." Mary was in tears long before her hus band finished his narration: but her heart went up in thankfulness to God for having interposed just at the crisis when hope seemed gone. From that day Ernest Linwood was a made man. The fame of his skilful opera tion was in every one's mouth; and, by the aid of his patient, who now become his patron, he stepped at once into a practice among the best families of the place. Wealth as well as reputation (lowed in upon him; but he always attributed his success 10 ins w lie, wnose nnocuon, ne saui. had cheered and sustained hitu when out of heart. "There is nothing," ho would say, "like a faithful wife: under Gud our weal or woe for this life depends on her. If she is desponding, your own sanguine spirit catches the infection; but if she is full of hope and energy, her smiles will cheer you in the darkest hours and enable you to achieve what von, at first thought impossi b i li ties. Our success in this world, as well as our happiness depends chiefly on our wives. Let a man marry one, therefore, "equal to either fortune, who can adorn his riches or brighten his poverty, and who under all circumstances, will be truly his helpmate. A Remarkable Cask. It is stated in a late foreign Magazine, that there is now livinn in the Isle of France, a man en dowed with such remarkable power of si"ht that he perceives vessels several hun di ed miles at sea. He is pensioned by the British government, and every morning reports to the government house what ves sels are in the oiling, and when they mav bo expected, and it is remarkable that he was never known to fail. When the first steamer was sent from England, ho saw her at a distance of some hundred miles, but was surprised at observing she had four masts, one of ihem smoking. When he reported this strange appearance (no steam cr being expected, or known to bo on its way) it was supposed he had lost his extra ordinary power of vision, but the result verified his story. "How dreadful short the days arc," as the woman said, when she let tho breakfast dishes stand till she had read a novel. ME8 Jeffehson. IVo. 17. BRITISH RAGE FOR MONOPOLY. It appears that the English have intrigued successfully with the Bolivian government tor the exclusive privilege of exporting bark, by tho British; and the general opin ion is that it will be granted, and continu ed, let what change of government soever be made. There is no country in which this bmk and the chemical preparation cf it, called quinine, are consumed to st great an extent ns in the United States. Trio British have a monopoly of the article, they probably will in the event of war, prohibit the ex portation of it lo this country. During the last war with France they "denounced this medicine ns liable to seizure, when found on hoard neutral vessels, bound to any port in possession of Napoleon's gov ernment. Both bark and quinine nre exceedingly scarco in the southern States. In some places on tho Mississippi, quinine sell1', we are told, as high as five dollars an ounce. This enormous price is accounted for by the letter from which we have given an extract above. Fortunately for mankind, and particularly the poor, whom the extravagantly high price of bark and quinine excludes from their use, a substitute has been discovered, as we are informed by an article in the Union, in the bark of several varieties o! the common willow (sahx). Tins medi cine says the article just referred to, was introduced many years ago under the name of salacine, but it has not hitherto been used to such an extent as fully to test its quali ties. It is understood to be the intention of the medical department of the army to try it on a large scale in some of the most unhealthy posts of the frontier. Should salicine prove to be a proper substitute for fjuiuine, tho preodinoss of John Bull will be disappointed of his monopoly. Mis.-ouriun. MELANGE. The pipers of tho day nro teeming with too many fables, which are calculated to ex cite, while they deceivo the people. Among these we have no hesitation in naming the following, as far as we are cJviscd: Frcm the Correspondence of tho A!' any Aiha. London, May 1 9. "It is well knorcn, ,nd I mentioned the circumstance in a postcript of April 5, that important despatches were sent to Mr. I'ukeiiham on that day by lhisgovernrr.cn', and it is believed that some reply has been received. In a recent number of tl e London Atlas, the subject is thus referred to: "It is no secret in well informed quar ters that despatches have been addressed by Lord Aberdeen to the British resident at Washington, of the most serious and emphatic descriptions, and that replies thence are expected by government with the greatest anxiety, not to say apprehen sion. Lord Aberdeen's object is un dors io.nl to bo to bring the all'iir to an immediate settlement. Further delay on th 3 part ol America will not. it is believed be submit ted to.' The Atlas, concludes by remark that "Lord Aberdeen u-ill insist on the mmth of the Volu.-nbbi river ;l!itf question of peace or war there hinges on tha point whether President Polk will resign the pretensions of the United Stales to the mouth of that river.' " This miy hi no secret in London, per haps, but we suspect it is rather more o! a secret in Washington. In ether words we doubt much whether Lord Aberdeen has given any such instructions, And we d."ulj;. too, whether Lord Aberdeen is so Strang" a statesman as peremptorily to insist on the mouth of the Columbia, at least 3! degrees south of the celebrated -lOtii degree. Let us say, with the same boldness with whiidi the London Atlas appears to reveal the se cret, that if the question of peace or war hin ges upon this issue, we go for war. We Joubt, hovvevor, the whole story i Union. SACRIFICE OF LIFE !N THE WAll OF L.V VENDEE. Every one knows something of this ter ribly war. It continued less than eight months, but though the whole territory con tained a few years since only 80X000 in habitants, even a French RspuLIicin wri ter makes the sum total of its victims no less than 9j'2,000 besides all that perished on the side of the Republicans. The state ment, even from such a source seems almost incredible; but there is no end to the havoc of war. Considerably more than a million of men must have been sacrificed in the war of La Vendee. Pittsburgh Spirit tf tha Age. Exactly so: and of whose procurement was this war of La Vendee? who conceiv ed it, nursed it, fed and fostered it, furnish ed it monev, cannon and small nrir.s! THE ENGLISH GOVERNMENT! And foi what? To aid the cause of legitimacy, and put down republicanism, in Europe. This, to the British aristocracy, was of far more im portance than a million, or any othei num ber of lives. Besides, there wore hopes on the part of tha English government, that this civil war, properly nursrd and petted, might end in a division of Frauce uinon: the nations thus blotting France from tlu map of Europe. This was a favorite scheme of the Pitt ministry, at one time: American editors when they advert to points in the French revolution, would do this nation and iho cause of truth, a great service if they wou'd, at tho sumo time, state the agency and interest that were ac tive in what they narrate; and the motives, when known, inducing thereto. There are few, very few points in that revolution, or of its subsequent wars, upon which ihis nation has not been entirely misled, by re lating upon t'.ia studied perversions of the Eag!ih ues3.-Niili-:ial Pilot. WASHINGTON IIIVJNG. Mr. Irving is beloved wherever he is known lor his amenity of manners and kindness of heart, nnd his reputation might almost bo termed universal. He is not on ly admired in the gorgeous halls of palaces, b it his writings huvo ronr.he 1 the heart of the common soldier in his cabin. We havo heard an anecdote which illustrates the truth of the la! ter part of this remark. Upon his last visit to the south of Spain, Mr. li ving took Gibraltar in his way. It is one of the reg ulations of th it military p?st that no one shall ba admitted within the gates alter a particular hour in the evening. The vessel in which Mr. Irving was a passenger had dropped anchor in the harbor ufler this hour, but, being wholly unacquainted with the above mentioned rule, nnd anxioui to leave the narrow limits in wh'ch he had been so long pent up, and tread once more upon the Lroad earth, he him'el, ai-ked for ad mittance of the soldier upon duty. The sentinel politely but decidedly refused; whereupon Mr. Irving handed him his card, with the request that it might be left with the proper r.uthori'.ier, so that in the morn'ng no delay mi'it o-.-cur in admitting h i :n. Ttii s'lhher Ij.iknd upon the card, and then r-ising his hat, "Sir, sai l he, " ar.e you Washington Irving of America ! are yon the author of the Sketch Book' and the Tales of the A'hmb.-a'" Mr. Ir ving replied, in s")m3 surprise, "I anv" Then said sentinel, "you may ener. I know th it I s.'iall b; pardoned fur admitting you!"' ENGLISH TESTIMONY OF AMERICA. We copy the following from the London Christian Examiner: "The Pilgrhn Spirit has not fled. Ameri ca is now strong in moral power, nnd as long as sho breathes the spirit of the reli gion of the Pi'grims, we hope wiil, not on ly fur the United Stales, but for Christen dom and tho world.

In speaking of th? probability of a war between Enghr.d and the United States, the Toronto, (Can. .da) Globe says: "This is nr-t the age when Loyalty goes by blind superstition ; it i? guided by discrimi m'ion. Nati ns are int to be ruled with a rod of iron, but swayed by :i wise nnd lib eral policy. L':t the II -me G ivernment reflect on the position of Canada, should a war unhappily arise between Britain and the United Slates. Nova Scotia, N'evv Brunswick, Prince Edwards Liand, and all the North AmerirNin Provinces have more or less to say to Robert lVM brl'ore he goes to war with the United States.

Frequent bathing, not ence or twice a t:ir.nth, but every day, if you please, in warm or cold water, is one of the grand est medicines in t'.ie world. It will make one heartier, freer fro-n iii tease, than a ton of medicine could.
