From the Nr;c- York Commercial ,‘ldrerliti.r. There is n*» less of poetic beauty than of genuine feeling tn the following lines from the pensive muse of our old frlettd *t>J correspondent. MY K.\rXY DAY. •‘My early day.whnt joys were thine! ’ And yet thou It ad's t some sorrows too; A varied wreath they join'd to twine. \u l 'midst it Hope her blossoms threwt B n lie oil the breeze, her losy kiss Bade Pleasure sojourn thcie, \.nve ramc to tune iiei lute ol bliss, Ami iviiiiicms sung to cate. Deardavsof peace! ah, whither fled? O'er my young Ko.v'r ye did but hover, i'licu, like the dove, your pinions spread. And v-mght your home, the -Kies Ion-vet! dour morning gales my path beguil’d. Nor whisper’d they should dip so soon; Nor cicli bright bod that round il smil'd, Ditain of departing ere 'tiva> noon. Hut tho«e ate hush'd, nud these are gone, And sadness rules tin* blighted scene; l wander downcast and alone. Scarce mindful they have ever been! 3o chill, Time*-- marble foot hal!i pass'd Through childhood's dimpled vale. No herb cun bloom, no verdure last, To cheer life's ev'uing pile. Sweet hours! with golden pastimes fraught, On you 1 turn my streaming eve And think: and in that racking thought, My heart, my gushing heart, would die. Ye conjecture up each onre-lov’d form, Krtch well icmcmbcied voice awaken; Then show me how they met the storm, And sunk, on Joy’s blight shore forsaken! Ne’er shall they mount with me again, I lov'd so well—yon sunny steep— One stroke hath dash’d our hands in twain, And 'neath its bronmwnnd edge they sleep. His pang descends not to their bed, Who sickens round the scene, To know life’s infant riow'rs are dead, Its riper thorns yet green. On wing more swift than morning lark, Mv faded yea is unlov'd tire Imrne; Where wilt thou land me, oh my baik, If not to youth's dear port v\e turn? Must man n'erpas- the beek'niug vale. An * all its winning sweets iciiounce? Alas! he spreads no second sail, He freights his hatk hut once! Oh tell me, “step-dame Nature,” tell, Where shall thy wayward child abide, On what far stiatid his spirit dwell. When life hath sp-at its struggling tide? Shall hope no more her taper uuiuio. Quench'd in'the teais that Sorrow sends; No.- from the tl nst Mi-fortune spurn The wishful wretch that o’er it bends? No more shall folly's yellow wing O'er l’li i .lie's path shed sickly dews? Nor Youth's delightful day ol spring 'Mid Cliff's dim cloud its lustre lose? Say, ne’er shall wealth’s gay spangled plume Deceive, as when it eist was mine? Not l.ovt turn sliudd’ring from the tomb; Nor Joy at her siimt reign repine-1 And when the grave, if* grassy v* il Between these eyes and litis shall -ipreaJ, Shall Mein’ry blight the primrose pule. That kindly strives to shade my bed? Or shall the form that slumbers there. No more of pain nor death endure? Oh, pour thine answer on my ear, ‘‘I've to!ihec, told thee, child—no more!"

Spread your sail to the breeze. I.o! the vile Crescent’s pointed horn, Hwift on the wrathful tempest borne, Shower fires upon the foe. Like Ilion's crackling towers they fall, And many n tm-ban'd warrior tall, Sleeps in the sen below.

At sea. his power is as extensive as that of the Giand V’isicr on land.
