Tho higher Poems bestow an almost exhaust

fill command of language in nil its strength and
beauty. Here however I enter my protest a-
eainstthe miserable rhyming, with its sickly sen-
timcntnlism, jingling sing-song nnd false morality
so much in voguo, a species of composition per
petrated chiefly by love-lorn swains and venerable
spinsters, who wreak their vengeance on society
by publishing these precious models of on imbe
cile literature. From the perusal ofsuch stutTwe

had expected a banquet, and nrc fed with in

quickness of apprehension. The Sciences with
their nppliances for the mechanicnl, agricultural
and social conveniences of life, permeate all tho
masses of society. Essays produco methodical
and pleasing ihoughtfulncss. Legislative Debates
rouse a spirit of emulation nnd a thirst for more
general knowledge. Law Commentaries enlarge
tho understanding, give acuteness and discrimina
tion, and impart clear views of tho principles of
government nnd of individual rights. Newspa

led up by tho boys on tho way side. A blush
might have been seen upon tho young girl's face
as Mortimer gallantly assisted her in nrrism
meantime stealing n hasty kiss from her rosy
cheek. Thus early was formed tho attachment
which existed in purenrss between them, nnd ma
ny were the thoughts of the futuro passing in thei
youthful minds as they sat in tho school room.
Nor was the discernment of the innkco teacher
lon-r in discovering their mutual fricndship,whic
he would sometimes in n shrowd manner make
the occasion of n passing jest. Ono instance
will mention: Mortimer and Flora were both
in tho same class in Grammar, nnd while parsing
one day the teacher requested Florn to conjugal
tho verb to love, nnd when shecnincto tho piura
of the first future, she inadvertantly raised her
eyes toward Mortimer, who sat opposito to her, in
doing which she caught the eye of tho teacher,
who was smiling and who'iinmcdiately approach
ed and presently whispered in her ear, 'You may
indeed, but vou had better attend to your studies
nwhilo first.'
Time passed on, and tho days of their minority
were numbered, when (in 1830, ns I have before
mentioned) their union was consummated, mak-
in" hundreds of hearts glad, while some more nris
female faces present, even when the others lud
passed away. Suddenly Elizabetli started upsho
was wide awake, out nn iinutteraoic uorror nau
seized upon hrrsoul any tiling to escape from that
bed ! nnd when her dismal shriek had summoned
her attendants to her npaitmenl, they found her
Mainline in her nigln dress on the floor, bur hands
clenched, her eyes fixed as in a convulsion, and
spoeks of foam upon her patted lips. It was a
frightful speciarle, the strongly marked but wither
ed features and stony blue eyes of tho miserable
Hut what needs it to prolong the description of
scenes so horrible ; tho struggles of a soul which
had used its greatness to destroy ; and which sum
moned to quit that world it hath too much loved,
shrunk from the contemplation of its past career.
No entreaties cpuld prevail upon the wretched
Oupen to return to her bed; she raved, screamed,
and went at the proposal. Cushions wero brought
and upon them she was extended, billerly bemoan
ing her miserable fate, and refusing all refreshment
and consolation.
Who does not know that for ten days tho unhap
py Queen thus remained, still refusing to enter her
bed. The llishops and the Lords of the Council,
alike in vain entieated her to alter this resolution.

the sol- regard ns a sure indication of the increasing intol-
gencc and sense of thecommunity. The writings
and speeches of tho great fathers of American lib
erty nnd laws, as also those of tho great English
statesmen, ought not to bo omitted for they a re in
deed among the best specimens of intellectual
greatness extant.
Thcro is one fact connected with this subject
which I cannot look upon but with feelings of re
gret nnd deep humiliation. I refer to the pauci
ty and meagerness of the private libraries of our
agricultural gentlemen. Look at them 1 A con
temptible number of school and religious books,
("not very expensive nor very good) nn almanac,
two or three nntinuated. ihird-rato love and-mur-
dernovels, (operating ns far as they go to vitiato
their children's taste for rending) nnd what else?
"A bectrnrly acocunt of empty shelves." Shamel
shame! that men who aro worth their thousands
should suffer their children to grow up without
habits of useful reading. For be nssurcd that tho
character and extent of our libraries nro unfailing
irv!i-M nf the character nnd rxtrnt of our
nedlierf.no: but it rometh, it comcth forovor, nnd
still accompanied by another, which my soul sick-
encth to behold.' Whilo Elizabeth spoke, entered
Sir Robert Cecil, with the Lord Admiral, a rela
tion of tho Queen ; they came to entreat that she
would suffer herself to be conveyed to bed.
Elizabeth looked round, shuddonng, at her cost
ly couch, 'Oh, never, never !' she exclaimed. 'Oh
Cecil, if thou hadst seon there what I have seen,
thou wouldat not drive thy mistr oss to that couch ol
horrors !'
'What has your Grace thcro beheld ' asked Ce
cil, 'have you there beliel d the dwellers of another
world ;
Nay 1' answered Elizabeth, 'surely this is an idle
question; and beneath our notice.
, bo but to satisfy tho affection of
'In sooth your Grace must retire to bed,' persist
ed Cecil,' 'it it b(
vour people !
At these words, the ombers of on almost extin
guishable fire again blazed in the heart of Eliza
beth, and lighting up her worn features with some
thing of the dignity of old, she raised herself on her
'Must!' she exclaimed; 'is must a Word to bo nd
dressed to peincesl Littlo man. little man. thy
father, l the hat been alive, durst not have used
that word. Hut nlas, alas,' continued tho Queen,
wringing her hands and speakinc in a tone of deep
dejection, 'thou art grown presumptuous, because
tnmi Knowcsi tnai i snail uie.'
'Good madam, be comforted,' said the Lord Ad
miral, again approaching the Queen
her estimation a Jack Plane wis as honorable a
mark of distinction as a Title Deed, and tho pro
fession house-building as meritorotis as that of
house-renting. Nobility, in her judgment, con
sisted in being truly noble, generous, good. And
her futuro history proved her judgment corrected
No person could have been happier than herself,
duiing the seven years of her husband's life five
of which were spent iri Saraldga after marriage,
nndiwoin Michigan, although tho peculiar mis
fortunes which befel them in pecuniary matters
while at the west, under almost any other circum
stances would hnvo been sufficient to embitter
their cup most deeply. For, during the two years
of his residence in Adrian. Lenawee co, was Mor
timer made the victim of most wicked designs ;
more agravating, because concealed under a pro
fession of religion and friendship. Tho circum
stances of which can only bo give in brief, are ns
follows :
Mortimer was n workman of superior science,
and had made great proficiency in acquiring prop-
crtv bv his trado : he was, a man of peculiarly
exemplary habits, and had gained tho respect of
all who knew him.. Being a constant attendent
enjoying the unceasing sympathy nnd respect of
ic community. The next event that occurrcu in
is eventful life, was that which tnnde htm nbank-
rnrt but enrrird him to a nrcnmluro crave, nnu
covered the path of Flora with darkness, and fill',
cd her heart with many sorrows,

Mr. Editor: -The "Illuminated Periodical"
Bible," from the press of tho hnrper,-NBW York, '
has been submitted to us for our opinion of its char- '
actor, nnd claims to "popular favor," and as minis'
tcrcsof the Gospel wo do not feel nt liberty to with
hold thn expression' of the opinion, howuver' it
may conflict with the commendation passed upon
it by tho press, or seem to mihtatoNvith tho interest
of the proprietors.
In tho first place, wo nre decidedly opposed fo
tho growing disposition to accompany tho Sncrcd
Scriptures with pictorial illustrntions. While in
somo few casss these may nfford clear views of
ancient riles, or give moro perfect knowledge of
the arts of the ngc, they can seldom if ever aid nt
all in giving clearer perceptions of truth, orinfor
cing its sacred claims. Their tendencies to evil
aro too numerous to mention in this place, obvious
ly holding a natural nnd immediate nfiinity to tho
sickening usages of supcrstiton, nnd image wor
ship. In tho second place, wo nro strongly opposed
to the present work on account oftho character
of many of its pictures ; and ns Christian Minis
tors wo feel bound to record our most decided
objections to it, whatever mny bo its claims to
excellent mechanical execution. Many of those
pictures are rcvoltingty obscene nnd coining ns

we have not been nble to discover .cither their
great excellence ns specimens of nrt, or the pro
priety of nffixing them to passages of inspired
truth where they nro found.
In our view, the plea of increasing the circula

such violation of deicacy and good taste ; nnd ob
