The Free,
The wilil streams leap with headlong sweep
In their curbless course o'er the mountain steep;
All fresh and strong they foam along,
Waking the rocks with their cataract song.
My eye bears a glance like the beam on a lance,
I burn with glee, for I love to see
The path of any thing that's free.
The sky lark springs with dew on his wings, .
And tip in the arch of heaven he sings
Trill-la, trill-hi-oh, sweeter far
Than the notes that come through a golden bar,
The joyous bay ol a hound at play,
The caw of a rook on its homeward way,
Oh, these shall be the music for me,
For I love the voices of the free.
The deer starts by with hi? antlers high,
Proudly tossing his head to the sky;
The barb runs the plain unbrokc by the rein,
With streaming nostrils and flying mane;
The clouds arc stirr'd by the eaglet bird,
As the flap of its swooping pinion is heard..
Oh! these shal'l be the creatures for me,
For my soul was form'd to love the free.
The mariner brave, in his bark on the wave,
May laugh at the walls round a kingly stare;
And the one whose lot is the desert spot .
Has no dread of envious foe in his cot.
The thrall and stale at the palace gate'
Are what my spirit has learnt to hate:
OhJ the hills shall bo a home for me,
For I'd leave a throne for the hut of the free.
"Yes, I do now remember the name,
must enquire for a spinning wheel."
From the Christian Register.
The Dying Wife,
I saw a young and lovely wife,
Strcched on a bed of pain and death,
Waiting to yield him up he r life
Who filled her frame with mortal breath.
Beside her sat with aching brow
The sharer of her youthful heart;
Oh, will there nought console him now,
When she he loves must soon depart?
0 yes, for hear them speaking now
Of that blest world beyond the grave,
For they arc taught with Christ to bow,
Ard hope through him their souls to save.
1 go, dear husband, where the stream
Of heavenly pleasures gently flow,
Where the blest light of glory beams,
Surpassing all things here below.
I thank thee for the many hours
Of happiness almost divine,
Which o'er me fell like summer showers,
From the pure gushing heart of thine.
' And if to parted souls are given
The blest employ to hover near,
And guide the loved ones up to heaven
Till thou art laid upon thy bier,
. Will I thy guardian angel be,"
To guid,o thee through life's weary road,
From every snare to set thee free,
And lead thee 'upward to thy God.
She ceased; she felt that death was nigh,
To 'touch her with his icy wand
She heard her husband's heart-drawn sigh,
And felt the tremor of his hand.
Then giving him one look of love,
And bidding him in Christ to trust,
Her spirit fled to worlds above,
And left him weeping o'er her dust.
The Rocky Mountain Expedition,

The party, it will be remembered, left this city
on the 12th of May 1843 very near fifteen months
ago and by the latter part of that month they had
passed the western boundary of Missouri and
launched out into the Praries.
T.eavinnr the frontier in the beginning of June
and travelling along the line of the Kansas River

July, and occupied the month in exploring the
heads of the Arkansas. At the close of the month
they crossed the mountains, and continuing their
way to the westward, had reached the ureal
Salt Lake in the begginning of September.
No human being had ever before visited the
Island of this celebrated lake and a few weeks
were spent in exploring its unknown waters, and

the winter set in with a severe storm, on the 19th.
Pursuing their way in the Oregon road, they
reached the falls of the Columbia early in the
month of November. Leaving his party here Mr.
Fremont proceeded by water to Fort Van
couver, at which Mace he arrived at me com
mencement of the ramv season. Un the 25th ol
November, m n snow storm, they left the 'tails' on
their homeward route, intending to return by the
wnv of Klamet and Mary's Lake. No interrup

their march until they had passed the Klamet

I allow not to human laws, be they primary or secon
dary, no matter by what numbers, or with what solemi i:
ties ordained, the least semblance of right to establish sla
very, to make property of my fellow, created equally with
myself, in the image of God. Individually, or as political
communities, men have no more right to enact Slavery,
than they hare to enact murder, or blasphemy, or incest,
or adultery. To establish slavery is to dethrone right, to
trample on justice, the only true foundation of Govern
ment. Governments exist, not for the destruction of lib
erty, but for its defence not for the annihilation of men's
lights, but their preservation." Birney on Annexation.
Whilst the South is crying out for the Union, and char
ging the Abolitionists with aiming to destroy it, the Union
it wants is one in which the JNorlh is tamely to submit to
the indignities and degradation which slavery casts upon
free labor to the destruction of the press and the slaugh

Our Grandmother's Music.
" Thy grandmother," said uncle Toby, address
ing himself to young Arabella, just from London,
and who was playing the battle of Marengp on
'the piano, "thy grandmother, child," said he.
" used to play on a much better instruments than
" Indeed," said Arabella, " how could it have
been 'better? you knor it is the most fashionable
instrument,- and it is used by every body that is
any thing."
" Your grandmother was something, yet she
never saw a piano forte."
" But what was the name of this instrument?
had it strings, or was it played by keys?"
" You must give me time to recollect the name;
it was indeed a stringed instrument, but was play
ed by the hand."
"By the hand alone? How vulgar; but I pro
test I should like to see on.e, and papa shall buy
. me one when I return to London. Do you think
we 3an obtain one?"
"No, you will not find one in Loudon, but
doubtless they may be found in some of the coun
try towns."
"How many strings had it? Must one play
with both hands? and could one play double
bass?" . ".
" I know not whether it could play double bass,
as you call it; it was played by both hands.and
two strings." . '
" Two strings only? surely you are jesting, how
could music be produced by such nn instrument,
when the piano has two or three hundred!"
" Oh, the strings were vfcry long, one about
fourteen feet, and the other might be lengthened
at pleasure, even fifty or more."
" What a prodigious-deal of roo'm it must take
up; but no matter, I will have mine in the old
hall, and papa may have an addition built to it,
for he says I shall not want for any thing, and so
does mamma. Were the strings struck with little
mallets, like the piano, or were they snapped, like
the harpsichord?"
" Like neither of those instruments, as I recol

In a lawyer's office in a remote part of this state,
lay a rnortjrase for eleven hundred dollars which
was within a few days of being due. One moi'n

" I know there is a visionary dogma which holds that
negro slaves cannot be the subjects of property. I shall

Two hundred years of legislation have sanctioned and

Wo remember an individual that residod in this
city not,many years ago, who owned a considera
ble amount of property, but who was so much ad
dicted to the use of strong drink, that his friends
arranged matters in such a way as to prevent its
being squandered, by removing it from his reach;
'and after taking.care that he was well provided
with the necessaries of lile, allowed a certain sum
each day for spending money. Ashe grew older
his appetite grew stronger, and his daily allowance
was not sufficient to gratify his increasing thirst.
He would goto his friends and plead for ,yi hour
at a time for a little more of the ready, but they
were inexorable. At length they told him to go to
