AN TI SLAVERY BUGLE, SALEM, O.
Poetry. The Brotherhood of Nations. AN ANTICIPATION. [Suggested by Beranger's Alliance des Peoples'.] BY CHARLES MACKAY, LL, D. Tha wan had ctasd; tha wtarj nation furled Their tattered flags, and aheathed their bluntrd affords. And, ick of blood, the decimated world Couoted it acars, it glories and rewards. A little tvhisprr, raised in doubt and frnr, . Made an appeal to all the suffering lands Form an alliance, holy and sincere, And jain, join hands. "Old men left childless and disconsolate. Widows, forlorn, and maidens sorrow-crowned, The children loitering al the cottage gate, 'Theyoung men mournful gazing on the ground, Joined In the cry, lamenting, j-et of cheer Repenting ever, Oh! ye ruined lands, Form an alliance, holy and sincere, And. join, join hands. The plowman singing at the early morn, Stopped in his task, and shuddered to behold, Through the long furrows for the future corn. Half-buried skulls projecting from the mould, Jiunei of his brethren, scattered far and near; And sadly gating sighed, Unhappy luuda, Form an alliance, holy and sincere, And join, join hands. ," The whisper spread it gathered as It went; r'roni crowd to crowd the aspiration flew; Piitracted Kurope staunched the wounds that rent Her bleeding bosom, pierced at Waterloo; 'Her wisest sons, with voices loud and clear, Took up the words, and bore them o'er the lauds Form an alliance, holy and siucere. And join, jain hands. ' Vhy should ye drag,' said they, 'tha furious car Of wild ambition? why, with sweat and toil. Follow the pantingdenii-gods of War, And with your blood make runnels thro' the soft! 'Long have you suffered long in mad career Borne fire, and sword, and sorrow thro' ihcliHtds 'Form an alliance, holy and sincere. And join, join hands. Sheathed be the sword forever let the drum 'Be school-boys' pastime let your battles cease, Aud be the cannon's voice forever dumb, Kxcept to celebrate the joys of peace. Are ye not brothers? God whom ye revere, Is he not Father of all climes and lands? Fovni an alliance, holy and sincere, And join, join hands.' . The words grew oracjes; from mouth lomotitb. Rapid as light, the truthful accents ran From'the NoTthland'to the sunny Sooth From East to W est they warmed the heel of man ; The prosperous people, with a sound of cheer, Fasted tha glad watchword through the uniting -lands Form an alliance, holy and sincere, And join, join bands. 'They spread, (bey flew, thej fructified apaeet The spear and aword hung resting on the walls, 'I'reserved as relics of a bygone race, When men went mad, and gloried in their brawls. Peace the fair mother of each bounteous year Dropped corn and wino on the proli6c lands; Form an alliatice, holy and -sincere, And join, join hands. iF.ngland forgot her deeds of battle done-; -France blushed at'glory ' gained in fields of gore; German, Indian, Spaniard, Pole, and Hun, Taught kings a lesson, and were foes no more 'Knowledge achieved the circuit of our sphere, . And love became the gospel of the lauds When thatlliance, holy and sincera. Had joined all hands. Labor. Ho! Ya who at the anvil toil, And strike the sounding blow. Where, from the burning iron's breast, The sparks fly to and fro! While answering-to-the hammer's ring.

Ii is to be gifted with iho el oquence of o Cicero mid the ubiquity of n inuskcioc. To gossips how much so ciety is indebted for the latest intelligence, furnished gratis. They nro the model reporters of the world. They not only know all thui hns been done, but all ihnt is being done, ull that is going to be done, all that is proposed lo bo done, and all that is not going lo bo done. And these they have a hnppy faculty of exaggera ting and embellishing, and reciting in the best approved graphic stylo, so that their Eociety is ns much superior to the dry and garbled rumors of a newspaper, as thev are, themselves, in point of mor als and propriety, superior to the rest of this wicked world. Has any impropriety been committed by anybody anywhere J Straightway tho gossip's bonnet is on, and without stopping to change her frock, oil she goes, "with -charitable intent, to spread the tidings to "a few" "confidential" friends. Then how tho heads are bobbed together, and eyes opened wide and tongues made lo imitate a mill-clnpper. Would you have thought it t You don't say so 1 What do you think I just heard? Oh don't you tell anybody, if I'll tell you. Oh, mercy's sake, not for the world. Well, won't you certain 1 No. Well then, here it is there now oh. Some body's mare's dead, and forlorn gossip dom is reanimated, and tho news is spread from cloilics-polo to cloihos-polo. Theso nminblo personages, who are so imbued with the spirit of self-sacrifice that they cannot attend to their own bu siness till they hove taken care of every body's else, are Iiko the breeze to tho ocean they keep society from stagna tion. They stir up their neighbors with a long pole, and wo to the communica tive or confiding. If you wish to adver tise anything far and cheap, tell it as n secret to one of this industrious class, and within a day it will come back to you from fiftv sources, and so altered and improved upon that you will not re cognize it. Sweet are the uses of adversity, Which, like the toad, ugly and venomous, Wears yet a precious jewel in its head. Seriously tTie " precious jewel " of experience thus bought will be of ser vice to you through lire. It will learn you to be shy of your confidence, and tardy in your beliefs. It will teach you to spurn lrom your communion those miserable newsmongers of society who fatten on the faults and follies and mis fortunes of their race. It will teach you that loquacity is generally a sign of vices in its possessor, and that those against whom its sallies are directed are often tho good and the harmless. It will expose the cause ot much of the sultering of do mestic life, of hate and heart-burning, jealousy, slander, sorrow and despair : and it will say to you with a solemn voice, Beware of dubbling with u (fairs that concorn you not j lest your feet become entangled in a web that you cannot break, and you stir up tho undy ing hato of those, whom you wrong and irritate by a meddlesome spirit.

C. Wright'. Letter to Win. II. Ashurst of London. . During the Mexican war which the Whigs opposcdwe asked a Whig pro prietor or a religious newspaper of ex tensive circulation, why ho did ol oorrre out boldly ud denoatice the warr, be lieving, as he did, that it was wrong and therefore irreligious. He replied as fol lows : "Why, one half of my subscri bers' are Detnaernts,"' The author of that reply is a Taylor man, of course. Roxburj Gat. , . - , . Husband Catching. Of certain divine an anecdote is told, which Hook used to say exceeded any specimen of cool assurance that he had ever exhibited. A young clerical friend of his, staying at his house, happened to be sitting up one night reading, after the family, as ho supposed, had retired to rest. The door opened, and hlu excellent host reappeared in his dressing gown and slip pers. "My dear boy," said the latter, seat ing himself, and looking pathetically at his guest, "1 have a lew words to say don I look alarmed they will prove a- grceabte enough to you, rely upon It. Tho fact is, Mrs. and myself have for some time obsetved tho attention which you have paid to Betsey. We can make every allowance, knowing your excellent principles as we do, for the ail- fidence which has hitherto tied your tongue, but It lias Deen carried lar enough. In a worldly point Ol View, Hotscy, 01 course, might do better, yet wo have all the highest esteem for your character and disposition but then our daughter- she is very dear to us and where her happiness is at slake all minor conshlera Hons must give way. We have, there fore, nfter duo deliberation I must own not altogether without hesitation made up our minds lo the match. What must be, must bu ; you are a worthy fellow, and, therefore, at a word, you have our free and cordial consent. Only make our child happy and we ask no more The ustonished divine, half petrified, laid down his book. " My dear sir," he bo can to murmur, " here is some dreadful mistake. I really never thought, that is I never intended. " "No 1 no I 1 know you did not. Your modesty, indeed, is one of those traits which has made you so deservedly a favorite with us all. But my dear boy, a parent's eyes" are chary. Anxiety sharpens them. Wo saw well enough what you thought so well con cealcd. Betsey, too, is just the girl to be so won. Well ! well ! soy no more about it; it's all over now. God bless you both. Only make her a good hus band ! here she is. 1 have told Mrs to bring her down again : for the sooner young folks are put out of sus pense the better. Settle the matter as soon as you like; we will leave you to emher." Thus saving, the considerate nana bestowed a most affectionate kiss upon his daughter, who was at this junc ture led into the room by her mother, both en dishabille, shook his luture son- in-law cordially by the hand, and with "There, there, go along, Mrs. ," he turned his wile out of the room, and leu tho lovers to their tete-a-tete, What was to be done? Common hu manity to say nothing of politeness, de manded nothing less than a proposal; was tendered accordingly, and, we need scarcely add, very graciously received. Memoirs oj Hook, Old Zack on Education. Tho fol lowing is one of the incidents of the Pres ident s tour: "Passing a small but busy brick school- house of rather humble pretensions, the President remarked that there were the true elements of nntional strength more formidable and effectual against the en croachments ot unarchy and tyranny than all the cannons of Waterloo or the soldiers of Napoleon. Education, said, was tho bulwark of American liber ty, and the country school house the ar senal lrom which tho cause of freedom, must ever draw her supplies." Wonder why old Zach docs not intro duce the Common School system on plantation? Is it because ho fears that the 4cause of freedom might 4draw sup plies lrom Hf Pedestrian Feat. Mrs. Anna Nor throp, upwards of 80 years of age, a few days since walked from her residence in Milford to the house of a friend Humphrevsvitlc, and relnrned again same day, having walked a distance twenty-six miles, besides-knitting, during Wr visit to the 44 Ville," two or three inches in length of a stocking! This a feat, though perhaps oemmon to -our revolutionary flumes, which would found difficult to perform by most ladies of the present day. If old Milford has many such smart Women as Mrs. N. protest againgt the term "Sleepy Hollow"' being longer applied to her. .New-Haven (Ct.) four. Butter Making. Scene; up -in Ver mont.

Chro- notyjie. The Bishop of Oxford recently sent round his diocese a circular of inquiries, amongst wnicn was the tallowing : 44 Does your officiating clergyman preach the .gospol, and are his conversa tion and carriage consistent therewith To this query the churchwarden, near YV ailing ford, replied, "He proaches gospel, but docs not keep a carriage."

PMithti tvery Saturday, at 12J ctnti a A'umbtr, or Ttarly, in adranc; J 8. BT I. L1TTELL & CO., BOSTON. . THIS work is conducted in the spirit of Littell's Museum of Foreign Literature, (which was favorably received by tha pubio for twenty years,) butas it is twice as large, . and appears so often, we not only give spirit1 ana iresnnees to it by many tilings wnicn were excluded by a month's delay, but while ' thus extending our scope and gathering a . greater and more attractive variety, are able so to increase tha solid and substantial part of our literary, historical, and political harr est, as fully to satisfy the wants of the American reader. . i The elaborate and stately Essays of the Edinburgh Quarterly, and other Reviews; and Blackwood's noble criticisms on Poetry, his keen political Commentaries, highly wrought Tales, and vivid descriptions of rural and mountain scenery ; and the contributions to Literature, History, and common life, by the sagacious Spectator, the sparkling Examiner, Hie judicious Athenaeum, the busy and in- ustrious Literary Gazette, the sensible and comprehensive Britannia, the sober and res pectable Christian Ubserver; these are Inter mixed with the Military and IN aval reraims-. cences of the United Service, and with the best articles of the Dublin University, New Monthly, Eraser's, Tail's, Alnsworth's, Hood's, and Sporting Magazines, and of Chambers's admirable Journal. 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 the thun der of the The Times. Wa shall increase our variety by importations from the conti nent of Kurope, and lrom the new growtn ot the British colonies. The steamship has brought Europe, Asia, and Africa, into our neighborhood, and will. greatly multiply our connections, as merch ants, 1 ravelers, and Politicians, wuh all parts of Ihe world ; so that, much mors than ever. it now becomes -every intelligent American to be informed of the condition and -changes of foreign countries. And this not only because of -their' nearer coiineKlion with ourselves, but because the nations seem lo be hastening, through a rapid process of change, to soma new Btate ol things, which the -merely poli tical prophet cannot compute or -foresee. Ideographical -Discoveries, the progress ot -Colonization, '(which is extending over the whole world,) and Voyages and 1 ravels, will be favorite matter for our selections; and in general, we shall systematically and very fully acquaint our readers with the great de partment of Foreign affairs, without entirely neglecting our own. Vhi!e we aspire to make the Living Agsj desirable to all who wish to keep themselves informed Of the rapid progress of Ihe move ment to Statesmen, Divines, Lawyers, and physicians to men of business and men of leisure, it is slill a stronger object lo make it attractive to their wives and children. Wa believe that we can thus do some good in our day and generation ; and hops to make the work .indispensable in every well-informed family, We say -indispensable, because in this day of cheap literature it 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 s-u-pply of a healthy 'Character. The menial and moral appetite must 'be gratified. We hope, that by 44 winnowing the wheat from the chatT," by providing abundantly for the imagination, and by a lare collection of Uiography, Voyages and 1 ravels, -History, nd more solid matter, we may produce a work which -shall be popular, while at the same time it will aspire to raise the standard of -public taste. Oct Letters' -commendation -of the plan and execution of the work from Judge Story, Chancellor -Kent, l)r. Uethune, nd Messrs. Jared Sparks, W. H. Prescolt, 5eorge Ban croft, and George Ticknor, have-boon publish ed in former advertisements. Posta'ce, When spnt with a cover it is ranked as a pamphlet, and cost 4i cents. Without the -cover it comes within Ihe defi nition of a newspaper, given rn the law, and cannot legally be charged with -more than newspaper postage. Month ty Parts. For such as prefer it in that form ihe Living Age is put up in Monthly parts, containing four or fivers eek I7 numbers. In this shape it shows to great advantage in comparison with other works, containing in each part double the matter of any ol' the Quarterlies. But we recommend the weekly numbers, as fresher and fuller of life. The volumes pre published quarterly. Each of them is equal lo three ordinary octavoes. Orders should be addressed directly to the publishers. E. L1TTELL & CO., Boston, Dec. CO.
