From the London Court Journal, Jlug. 17. THE ZUNGEED TREE. Serenade addressed by the author to a Persian "Ga zelle eyed" one of Jlfghistan. TheZungeed (a species of willow) has leaves of a silvery hue, and the flowers, which are of a deep crimson, send forth a most delicious perfume. When in blossom, the Zungeed is viewed by the Persians with ajealous eye, from the belief that it has a str ns tendency to quicken the love-thoughts of the gentler sex, whom they accordingly lock up while the flower is in bloom! : "To be plain, I think there's not ha'f a kits to choose Which loves the other best." "If that thou lov'st me, Steal forth this balmy night." Oh haste thee, ever dearest, Ever dearest, haste to me, The pale-eyed moon shall light us soon Beneath our Zungeed tree; Whose boughs, with pearls weeping, Now droop their silver arms, To veil from sight, this stilly night, Thy young and maiden charms. But other arms, my dearest, Shall clasp thee i th -ir hold The Zungeed tree may wave o'er thee, 'Tis mine that must infold -Thy cheek," love, shall out blush it, Though crimson be its bloom Wh le murm'ring rise thy tuneful sighs, To blend with its perfume. Our Zungeed tree, my dearest, Is now in rosy flower; 'Twill spread for thee its canopy, And be our bridal bower. And hde the stars are keeping Their azure watch above, And hearts beat hiijh, and lip3 arcnigh, We'll tell our tale of love. Thou com'st, thou com'st, my Peri, Thy voice is on the breeze; The Bulbub ne'er could woo the air With such sweet notes as these. Now, Zungeed, wave thy branches, - Wave, wave, thy crimson flowers, And moon and star go shine afar A night of bliss is ours. From the Georgia Constitutionalist. Vive la Bagatelle. It will b; remembered, that a short time since, a Durham bull, some where in Pennsylvania, broke into a mo.-us multicaulis field and devoured six hundred dollars worth of trees in one night; and the wag of an editor Who announced the fact, stated that it Was expected the hull would begin- to spin in a day or two. This bold outrage upon so important a staple in our trade, has called forth the following amusing parody on Gem Mor ris' "Woodman spare that tree." TO MY DURHAM. Tpne. " IFoodmaii spare that Tree." Durham! spare those trees, Harm not their tender boughs, But let them grow in peace, And elsewhere seek to browse. 'Twas your own master's hand That placed them in this spot: Then let my "morus" stand, Thy mouth shall harm them not. Those green and thrifty trees, My hopes must shortly crown, Then tread not, if you please, My multicaulis down. Forbear those midnight haunts, I've grass and hay to spare; Oh! save those tender plants, The silkworms only share. 'Twas not for idle sport, 1 sought this grateful trade, In all my gushing joy, I deemed my fortune made. With care those twigs I've reared, And weeded with my hand From grass and rubbish cleared; Then let, oh! let them stand. My hopes around them twine, - As round a needful friend, Each twig shall yield me coin, Till wealth shall make me bend. Old brute! then get thee gone, And leave this treasured spot, For while I've club or gun, Thy mouth shall harm them not. MORUS MULTICAULIS. GENERAL SELECTIONS The Compassionate Merchant. 'Jarties,' said a merchant on Main street to his clerk the other morning 'go down to Water street to J!,. ., and tell him his rent must be paid to day; I can't wait any longer, as he is already two quarters in arrear.' The clerk obeyed the direction, and soon returned with great appearance of mildness about the eyes. 'Mr. wants to see you, sir, about that rent very much.' Tbe merchant happily wax at. leisure, and went at once to visit tbe tenant. He found him extended upon a coarse bed, in an insen sible state ol" dangerous a malady. His wife was busy over a scanty fire apparently prepar ing some aliment for her sick husbaud. Three little children sat shivering in a corner. His approach was unnoticed. . .-, 'Ma,' said one of the little urchins, 'when be you agoing to get breakfast?' Breakfast, my dear child, that is more than I can tell.' - The merchant advanced. 'My gooj womau-my good woman them that is' and the worthy man felt very much like choaking. He grasped his pocket book convulsively, and laid some bills upon the table he opened the door ami disappear ed. 'James,' said he again to his clerk, 'take this order to Mr. , and te!l him to have the provisions delivered immediately.' The merchant felt much better than he would have doue if he had got the rent. There is something in a good action that makes one's heart teel lighter warmer bet ter. We would publish the good man's name, but we know he would not forgive it, and we would not for the world offend him. JJuff'alonian. From the .ffalo Commercial .Advertiser. PERILOUS ADVENTURE AT THE FALLS. An occurrence of most thrilling interest took place at Niagara Falls yesterday after noon, attended with imminent peril to the lives of two individuals, but resulted in a most happy and providential deliverance. The new bridge to Iris island is planted in a frightful rapid, where the current is from 20 to 30 miles an hour, and is only about 100 or 150 yards above the brow of the great pre cipice, or perpendicular fall. A carpenter by the name of Chapin was engaged with others in covering the bridge, and while at work upon a staging about one hundred feet from Iris island, accidentally losthis footing, and was precipitated into the rapids, and in the twinkling of an eye swept away towards the great cataract. Speedy and inevitable de struction seemed to await him; but fortunately he was uninjured by the fall, and even in this most hopeless condition retained perfeci self-possession. Turning his eye toward the only point of hope above the fearful preci pice, be succeeded, by great dexterity in swiming, in effecting a landing upon a little island some twenty feet in width and length, the outermost of the group of little cedar is lands situated some thirty or forty yards above the fulls, and about equi-disfant from Croat island and the American shore. There he stood for an hour, looking calmly and beseechingly back upon the numerous spectators who lined the bridge and shores, but with whom he could hold no conversa tion on account of the distance, and the roar of the rapids. There is a man in the village of the Falls by the name of Robinson, of extraordinary muscular power, great intrepidity, and with al an admirable boatman and he was proba bly the only one that could have been found within fifty miles who generously volunteer ed his services to attempt reaching the island in a boat, End bring Chapin off. A light boat of two oars, similar in construction to the Whitehall race boats, was soon procured, and he embarked. lie proceeded with great deliberation and consummate skill, darting his little boat across the rapid channels, and at the intervening ed ciies holding up to survey his situation and recruit his strength for the next trial. In a few minutes he neared the island, but a rapid channel still intervened, sweeping close to the island, and rendering the attempt to land very difficult. He paused for a moment, and then with all his strength darted across and sprang from his boat his foot slipped, and he fell backward into the rapid current. With the spectators it was a moment of thril ling interest and breathless silence, his boat seemed inevitably lost, and himself in fearful jeopardy. Retaining, however, his grasp oa the boat, he sprang in, and again seising the oars brought up under th lee of the little is land. All again felt a momentary relief, but still the great labor and hazard of the enterprise remained to be overcome. A cool head and a strong arm only could effect it. Robinson proved qual to the task. Taking his com panion onboard, in the same careful and deliberate manner, though at infinitely greater hazard and labor, they effected a safe landing on Goat island. There the spectators assembled to give them a cordial greeting. A scene of great excitement ensued the boat was drawn up the bank, and it was moved and carried by ac clamation that a collection be taken up on the spot for Chapin and his noble hearted deliver er Robinson. It was a generous one and was thankfully received; but the reflection to Robinson that he has rescued a fellow being under such circumstances will be to his gene rous heart a much richer one. After the col lection, Robinson and Chapin took their scats in the boat, and were carried in triumph on the shoulders of their neighbors to the vil lager The intense interest of the whole scene was heightened by the presence of Chapin's wife and children, who stood on the shora watching with unavailing horror and agony what seemed his inevitable and . fearful fate. With what devout and heartfelt gratitude must they have thanked God, when the husband and parent once more stood by their side safe and sound. VOL. 1. SO. 32. From the Savannah Georgian.

French Steamboats. A private letter from Marseilles, conveys the intelligence, that the Chief Naval Engineer,' who had charge of the direction of steamboats in the Mediter ranean, had received orders from the French Government, to prepare a plan of organiza tion for steam packets between Bourdeaux and New York. Marshal Souk interests himself greatly in the immediate execution of this plan, which has both a military and a commercial object. These packet boats are to be of such size and construction, that they may readily be converted into ships of Vvar of eighty guns: The largest engines yet employed are of lour hundred horse power. It is proposed to give the engines of the French steamers, four hundred arid fifty horse power. The railroad projected between Havre and Paris has failed. The bin authorizing it was lost in the Chamber of Deputies on the 8th of July. Globe.

To establish a commercial bank in Egypt, with a capital of two millions sterl-ing- 2. To purchase territory in Syria, for the benefit of the Jews. 3. To make the oath -of Jews admissible in Syria, as in Egypt. Globe. Singular.
