And eterruore the angels teven, Wilh glowing fingert tipp'il in firp. Draw from the chords retcttinl tones, That peal in baruiouies through all the slurry ronrs. - An angel with a pensive face Silt at the kej-note evermore; Mat lad, as If a pang she bore. Oat radiant with tuperrfal grace: Her name is Sorrows when she sings, Tha wonderont Ljre responds in all its golden strings. The second breathes in harmonies, A rainbow is her diadem, And on her breast h wears a gem That trickled from Contrition's e: Her nam is Sympathy; her tears. Falling upon the I.yre, make mimic in the spheres- The third is beautiful as she, Unfading flowers her brow adorn, And from her smile a rajr is born. That looks into Eternity : Her name is llol'K; to hear her voice. Belted Orion tings, nud all the stars rejoice. Tho fourfli, with eyes of earnest ken, Surveys the boundless universe, While her extatic lips rehearse The promises of God to men: Her name is Faith; her mighty cord Reverberates through space the glories of the Lord. fifth is robed in spotless white, d from the beating of her heart, Sach heavenly corruscations start As clothe the universe with light: Her name Is I.ovfc; when she preluded, The constellations throb in all their multitudes. The sixth inhales perpetual morn: Far through the bright Infinitude She sees beyond the present good. The better destined to be born: Her name is AsPIRATioM: eter She sings the might of Will.the beauty ofENDKAVoR. Crown and completion of the seven, Rapt Adoration sits uloue; She wakes the Lyre's divines! tone It touches earth it dwells in heaven: All life and nature join her hymn; Man and the rolling worldt, and choirs of cherubim. Know'st thou that Lyre 1 If through thy soul TIT immortal music never ran. Thou art but outwardly a man; Thou art not pure thou art not whole A faculty within thee sleeps, Death-like, eusepullured.in dim, unfathomed deeps. Oh suffering Spirit, bear and soar! The angels wave their golden wings, ' And strike the seven celestial strings. To give thee joy for evetmore: Ascend exulting from the sod. And join, thou happy soul, the harmonics of Cod! From the Minnesota Register. Minnesota. BY MRS. L. H. SIGOURNEY We've a child out at nurse, whero the titers run clear. And the Falls of St. Anthony ring on the ear And there, where the breezes are braciugand free, She's as healthful and hpv as baby can be; "Mens tana, in corpore sano," you know. Is a treasure to all who are pilgrims below ; And we with the wise Dr. Brigham have thought The " corpoue bAso" was first to be sought, So she runs at her will in the fresh open air, And takes simple food, aud is vigorous and fair. No toys at Coutant's or Donfanti's she buy, Nor afStewart's for candies and sugar plums cries, But plays on the greensward her gambols so rude With a huge timber doll that the woodmen bare kewed f Trots away to the bluffs, on her own sturdy feet, Or sings with her birdlingsin harmony sweet Marks the Father of Rivers, majestic and deep, Or links dn the shade of her forests totleep. We've been very much prospered in basket and store, Aud have brought up wilh care thirty children more; And our neighbors across the Great Water they say Regard them wilh envy, as surely they may; Still we bop iu her. case, some improvement euake. Since tha wisest of parents may sonietimessiiistuke. Her sisters are doubtless a wonderful band, The Joy of our heart and the pride of the land Yet a few of the eldest, from strictness of rule, Were sent, we're afraid, rather early to school; And, perchance, though the teachers had excellent tense. They developed the brain at the body's expense; Then some from the heat of their climate are frail, And others with fever and ague are pale And others, alas! have gone mad, we are told.

An English emigrant had settled down in a remoio part of tho forest where ho clear ed a Utile space about him and built a log hut. Ho had been there but a year or two, when one day as he was absent in tho woods with his eldest daughter, his hut look ftro and burned down. Ills wife was sick, but sho managed to crawl out, taking the straw bod on which she lay with her. At evening the husband re turned to find his house in ruins. It was a winter night, and the snow lay deep on tho ground. Culling aloud, he heard a fuiiit voice" reply, and going in the direc tion from which it came, found his wife stretched on the bed in the snow. . Get- ling together a few boards left froifr tho conflagration ho mado a shelter over her. That night sho was safuly delivered of a child, which survived and is now living. Dm under iho exposure nud cxciicincnt together, tho husbund look a violent cold, which having fits tc nud on his lungs, and being resisted by no medical treatment whatever, terminated in tho consump tion. Ho however, reared another hut and during the summer a young sotiler came in and purchased a tract near by him. His being tho only family within a long disianco, this back woodsman often passed tho evening in their society. It whs not long before he discovered that his neighbor could not long survive, for tho most ignorant in this region knew all tho symptoms of pulmonary disease which carries off three fourths of thoso who die. Accompanying this conclusion came naturally the reflection, what would becomo of iho wife: and as sho was good looking and industrious ho thought ho could not do better than to marry her himself. Acting under this consideration, ho mentioned the matter lo her, remarking that her husband could not live long, and asking if she would marry him after he was dead? She replied that she had no objections at nil if "her husband was willing?" He said he had no doubt on that point, and ho would speak to him about it. He did so, and the husband unhesitatingly gave his consent, adding that he was glad she would be so well provided for after his death. So when winter approached, the young settler would come and "court the prospective widow, whilo the dying husband lay and coughed on tho bed in tho corner. i. Now there was not much soiiiitnent in this, I grant, but there was a vast deal of philosophy. It was rather cool on her part lo be suro,bui vastly sensible on his. What could hiswifo nnd chil dren do all alone thero in the woods, without a protector? Tho toughest part of the proceeding, and that which no doubt tested tho backwoodsmuu's phi losophy iho severest was the courtship. To lio gasping for breath in ono part of ihe room, and sco iho young, athletic and healthy backwoodsman and his wile sit ting together by the fire, and know that after u few more painful weeks, he would occupy that place permanently, and yet boar it all patiently, required a good deal of stamina. Especially must the reflec tion that they were boih probably very anxious to have him take his departure have been rather a bitter pill lo swallow. 1 go into all these little particulars, you know, to show the character of my hero to the best advantage tho heroine speaks lor herself, lhese two interesting per sonages were my shoemaker and his wife.

It of a up at a who was From a letter in tho Boston Time, we extract tho following description of the pleasures of a voyago to California. We commend it to thoso who havo "got tho fever bad :" "During our vovneo, many amusing incidents occurred, none of which pro voked moro mirth than tho discharging of the duties of captains of tho messes around Cape Horn. You have probably beon informed that wo have 15 mosses, containing 10 persons each. A captain of the mess serves ono week at n timo, and his duty is to go to tho cook's gal ley, on the main deck, with his wooden kids and with his pots for various dishes, including b.-ans, puddings, sauce, tea, coffee, &c, and bring them down the compnnion-wny, between docks, and servo them up to tho messes, I had the honor of officiating as captain of Mess 4, round the Horn, and can speak experi mentally on tho subject. Severe blows were tho order of iho day, nnd they seem ed to rage with even moro fierceness just at tho timo of our pilgrimago after tho grub. 1 he decks would bo wet and slip pcry, from tho breaking over 01 tho sea, and it was not unfrenucnt thnt they ac quired additional slippiness, if I may use the expression, Irom deposits ol si.ustt carelessly dropped by Doctor Juba, the presiding divinity of the galley, or some of tho sailors. Added to this was the fuel that the vessel would lie over nearly on her side, causing tho surfuco of tho deck lo bo perpendicular. An unlucky wight would start from iho galley with his pork and beans, for instance, tlie Int- tcr article in a liquid loiin; no wouiu achieve nearly the whole extent of iho main deck, and involuntarily congratu late himself upon being able to serve up a savory dish lor his mess-mates, when presto! iho ship would give a sudden lurch the heels ofihc valorous and dar ing adventurer would fly up, nnd himself and his rocking mess would bo precipita ted with iho velocity of a steam engine into tho lee scuppers. The bearer would bo sadly bedraggled, and tho contents o the kid would become kindred elements wiih any quantity of slush nnd sail wa ter. Another, passing down the compan ion-way, would miss his hold, and clutch ing at mid-air, drop a pot of hot collee, dish of warm apple sauce or molasses on the heads of his anxiously waiting mess mates below. Again, as tho messes would bo gathered -around their board with their dishes and pots fullycharged the ship would suddenly careen and th contents descend in one undistinguished mass to leeward. These are every da occurrences in rough weather, nnd sue accidents are sure to be followed I touts ot laughter, it nn tiniucKy ie ow slips on deck, and lulls into lit scuppers, tho samo merrimont is provok ed, oven though he may not got off without a sprained ancle and I really believe thai if a person should fall an rcak his neck, the mishap would greeted with a roar of laughter." A Nation's Best Defence. If vou ave a nation ol men who havo risen to that tiight of moral cultivation thui they not declare war or carry arms, lo they have not so much madness left i their brains, you have a nation of lovers, f benelactors, of true, great, and able men. Lict me know more ol that nation; I shall not find them defenceless with Jlo hands swinging nt their sides. I hall find them men of love, honor, and ruih; men of an immense industry; men whose influence is fell to the end " of the earth; men whoso very look and voice carry the sentence of honor and shame; nd all lorccs yield to their energy and persuasion. Whenever we see the doc trine ol peace embraced by a nation, we may be assured it will not be ono that tn- tcs an injury; but one, on tho contra ry, winch has a Iricnd in tho bottom ol ho heart of every man, even of iho vio lent and ihe base ; one against which no weapon can prosper, ono which is look ed upon as tho asylum of the human race, and has tho tears and blessings of mankind.- Emerson. Payins Cash for a Seumon.-A corres pondent of the N. Y. Tribuno relates iho following anecdote which occurred at Saratoga Springs, in a church : Kev. Mr. .bock had jusi linishcd his first head, when a man near tho door rose and walked down the aisle directly in front of the pulpit, then deliberately and politely bunded up in front a bank note to the Rev. speaker, who quietly receiv ed it, and went on with his discourse. Who? What? Why? asked exciiod cu riosity in the minds of the puzzled audi ence. Quite a number, nnd among them Indies not a few, lingered after the bene diction, to obtain a solution of tho mys tery. It seemed that tho man was the son ot the late Judge , a generous fellow, but nccusiomod to look loo much on the wine when red," He was hoard to say lo his friends near, "I like that man s nrcaclnne: us worili tho cash down; I don't believe ho'll half get paid for it ; so hero goos a picture lor him. Whereupon ho rose, and wun a -oricK in his hat" and a bill in Ins hand, he made his way through tho wondering congregation to the speaker, cashed over, and quieily returned to nis scat.

We do not consider it beneath our dignity to borrow wit and wisdom from Punch and, when we think it good enough, make use of Ihe tho ri der of the The Times. We shall increase our variety by importations ftom the conti nent of Europe, and from the new growth ot me urilish colonies. 1 he steamship has brought Europe, Atia, anu Ainca, into our neighborhood, and will greauy multiply our connections, as lYIercb- ante, Travelers, and Politicians, with all parts ?'

While we aspire to make Ihe Livino Aok desirable to all who wish to keep themselves informed of the rapid progress of the move ment to Statesmen, Divines, Lawyers, and physicians to men of business and men of leisure, it is still a stronger object to make it attractive lo their wives and children. We believe that we can thus do some good in our day and generation; and hope to make the work indispensable in every well-informed lamily. We say inoispensable, because in this day of cheap literature il is not possible to guard against the influx of what is bad in taste and vicious in morals, in any other way than by furnishing a sufficient supply of a healthy character. The mental and moral appetite must be gratified. We hope, that by " winnowing Ihe whea from the chafT," by providing abundantly for the imagination, and by a large collection of Biography, Voyages and Travels, History, and more solid matter, we may produce a work which shall be popular, while at ihsj same lime il will aspire lo raise the standard of public taste.
