DEMOCRATIC RALLY1G SONG. Hurrah for Hit patriotinse! Hurrah for tho Democrats true, Tho old Constitution mid Laws The party for mo and for you! They follow the banner of right They kitllu the aruiy of wrong, And as they o fwrth to the light, They shout this encouraging song : Hurrah fur the riht '. The power of its might, Shall sweep liko tho Incoming tide, And treason no more, Besotted with gore, Our country milted divide! Hurrah for the men of our choice! America's trustworthy frU-nd IVo list with delight to their voice. Applause on their footstep attimls. Thnt voice as of oceans tho flow, Is strong In defenco of the right Those footsteps h.vu followed the foe, Arc found in front ofthe fight. Hurrah for the ritlit ! i The power of iu might t'hall sweep like the incoming tide, Aud treason no more, Besotted with gore, Onr country united divide! Hnrrab for the land thnt we love Tho land from the South to the North. No Democrat lives bnt K ill prove, Ho knows what the Union is worth! Hurrah fur the party that dares, The wrong iu high places t- chide ; Hurrah for tho pui ty that swears, The Uuion shall ever ubide! Hurrah for the right ! Tho power of its might, Shall sweep fiko the incoming tide, And treason no more, Besotted with gore, Onr country united divide! HOW I FIRST MET HER. 'Firnt 1"V0 is the only true love,' sny Home reole ; and 'Love is love f irover moru,' ndds a poet of tho cCectiong. On the other hand, there nre many persons, not without poms repututitu fur judgment in commercial circles, who assert that 'Brut luve is calf love.' I do not pretend to decide this question. But, at all events, firbt love must happen to every ninn before second love, and if it has not happened at all, it hns yrt to come. Under three circumstances, I cannot but think thnt tl e suVject is of universal inter est, and that any new experience of this absorbing passion will he received with rapture by the peojl?. Variety is j lend ing, but novelty is what I uuderstood tho magnzines are just now giving almost any thing for. Ball ion ndventures are rimng I IxLevo, in the verindiral sciile ; ai.d nar rations of descents into tho craters of vol canoes if active) are rerauneratpd most band"omely. But conceive, Mr. Editor, what would be the r.trr.iction of a vi lcatiic experience, 'complicated,' us the doctors any, with an episode of the tender passion! A love-scene, for instance, in the crater ! A owj of afT'ction intcrchnnged amid seas of burr iDg lava, and with the mountain throw ing iiinian candles over the heads of the intnpid pair! Vt'ouM nit this be novel ? v ould not this be Ftrikipg? I wih, for bi:h our eakwtfer your-, Mr. Kditor, and mine, that is) that I had met my Uha'lotte Elizabeth for the first time under tlm ';e jclV1'"'' circumstances. You would hastily have written, 'Name your ov, n price,' would yiu hot, aud enclos ed a blank cheque by return of pest ? I though fo ; and the idea gives me much sutisracion,' becauso I really did meet Cbatl itte Elizabeth for the first time in a locality by no mentis inferior (in point ol esceptiotittbility) to thatot the bottom of a crater nod a ?reat dcnl lower down. You will not imagine (hid to have been a coal mine, 1 hope. 1 have met very charming persons cf tho opposite srx and those nt the firet fashion many hundred feet bi 1 w the level of the sen, ai.d attired in a mas culine garb, for the convenience of descen ding shafts and travelling upon all fours ; hut I sh.mlJ not dream of sendir.g the ac count of anything so ordinary to a modern editor. I am betti r acquainted, I trut-t, with the nature of hid csnectatioas than that. Sevmteen was just the pgo fit which I first met Charlotte E'-izeth underwater. What think you nf that, Mr. Editor? Are not such circumstances of fi6t love new? Permit me i:Nto tdJ, with my bund upon my bei-rt, that they uro moieovcr true. It was on n Saturday cftern-on, which was a holiday nt our tfiice in the city (al though the early-clasing movement was net so much o beHrd of at that time), and I was speeding it in the improvement of my mind at the Polytechnic I had sat in that stately hull, which is something between a theatre and a dissecting-room, to behold the wonders of science ; I had gazed upon that wor.derous apparatus for learning to swim upon dry land until my limbs were on the point of involuntarily 'striking out' for an imaginary shore ; and I had gazed upon the electrical eel to repletion, whr n a great bell was rung, and a sonorous voios ex claimed : 'Experiments connected with the diving bell.' Upon this, a great rush was made frrm parts of tho building to the circular pond of clear, green water, the excessive depth of which has always been a marvel to me. Into whose celler dues it descend J What sewers does it forever threaten with untime ly flushing? Erotn what fountains do its pellucid waves arise? Then the intrepid diver made bis toilet in the presence of the company, being loaded with heavy weights, as though he were snmo desperate criminal and having on his face a helmet fixed, to be presently screwed .round by the assist ants, a proceeding which appeared to the unscientific eye like wringing his neck. Covered with polypi in the shape of India rubber tubing, this monster torpedo clum sily descended by an iron ladder into the pond, the bottom of which was already strewed with halfpence ; after this, wo could dimly see him waddle and stoop, made more hidtous even than before by the watery medium foreshortened, at light sngles to bimscl', exaggerated, dis prcportioned, slow tho most horrible pic ture of cupidity that the mind is capable of conceiving. Above bim arose Lirge and noisy bubbles; and now and then he would emerge as far as to bis head and shoulders, and tap his mental helmet with halfpence, to Ict us know as though we bad not watched his horrid movements all aWg that he bad picked them up. Incredible as it may appear, I was attracted towards the amphibious pursuit of his; I felt as though I should like to explore thoso airless depths, and make my business in those mighty waters. When he came out at last, like a two trunked sea-elephant, and bowed in his repulsive manner to the spectators, I was almost afraid that be was goiDg to offer 'any lady or gent tho loan of his apparatus. I was infiuitely relieved when I saw it put away in a cupboard, for now no unnatural temptation Atiy lady or gent for the diving-bell?' exelaimed the sonorous voice. 'The ma chine is now about to descend.' My heart came into my mouth, and then retired about half-way down my throat, as 1 ebould judge. My extremities became hot as fire, as I gasped cut: 'Stop a minute; take me in, please do.' The crowd that already surronoded the machine parted to left and right, to let me sapm q ar ivhimj of course ; but if I bad not spoken at once, I should not have done so at all. I was the first volunteer of this tremendous en tervrise, and an object of great public in terest. I wouldn't do it myself fur a 'tindred pounds.' observed on gentleman, for the purpose of reassuring me, I cnnelude ; and a friend of his r"ilieJ : 'No not yet fur two; it's what I ctll fi.ol'ard .' I passed the little barrier, I gave the manager the requisite nhilling for the sub marine passage ; and I crept under tho great gngglc-cyed be!l amid quite a popu lar ovation. A narrow seat ran round the intori r nf the machine; the atmosphere seemed close, even as it was, arid the light was dim, although we were as yet in the land of the living. I perceived, however, a shining substuneo immediately opposite tome, which turned out to be a boy cover ed with buttons the page nf the establish roent, whose dreadful trade it was to de scend, I don't know how many times a day, in comrany with subaqueous amateurs. lie had a rope in his hand, that hung down from the top of the bell, and which I fond ly imagined communicated with tho scien tific authorities, so that we could be hois ted up again at o moment's notice by t-ig-n&l; but this confidence) was entirely aiis placed. A certain round spot with a number of little belts 1 ko tho t ip cf a sink was the sole ornament of tho apart ment in which we were; and through this was to come the air we breathed. To sav that I woulti gladly have got out again, and eacrficed my shilling, is to give a very fee ble ida of n;y state of repentance. I would have ftjiven forly shillings to be once more gazing undor the light of heaven at the least rentiirUa,'le object of interest in the institution. A 1 lb" crimes I had ever committed during a checkered life seemed to crowd in upon my recolectiort. I made the most ardent resolutions for con ducting myself for the future after a dif ferent fashion if 1 should only bo per tnitted 1 1 emerge alive out ol that bell.' It is true that theie was yet time for mto do 8", fir tho director v.- sti!l touting Tor pas sengers, but I had not the moral courage for such a step a this. I could rot have descended amid the same crowd which bad applauded my interenidity, to experience its scornful jeers. I perceived the same feelings rcre Actuating two other individ uals who now j. ined us ; the?, too, cat wistful glances at the mouth of the ' bell, and were evidently contemplating in their minds the most salient points in thrir past wicked live. 'You had better nut up yrur legs, gen tlemen,' ol served the page ; 'there will then be less chance of falling out at the bottom, when we got under water.' 'J.css chance !' I gasped, as 1 hastened to obey this suggestion. 'Dj you mcau to say there is en; chance ?' 'Well, yr.u must sit quite still, of course, or thorp's no knowing what niny happen. You will be eufe euough, however, like this.' We bid all gt out feet in ench other's Inr f, forming quite a reticulation r.f lees beneath us, s.) tl.at if we fell at a 1, it must needs have been all tog. ther, when the director suddenly excinimod: 'Uy your leave, gen:l-u:en, H ere's a lad v coniing.' A lac'y cf.nilrg ? Where r n earth is sl.c to c.iniDM?' 1 inquired. There was not room tur a pin's head to make r.tiif ng us, end far less n lnrfr'e l s way 'U there no mom ?' injured one ;-?etcet vciccs tint lever heard li e. or t'.ic iu my Plrn'y t-f mom, m!iis. L-gdi.-n:i !' ciicd the conductor. Then a bonnet appeared, wiiluns ofthe most lowly faces in it you can imagine, nnd a link of tender appeal upon it at finding too bell full of legs which it was impussH ble to yesist. I sided nearer towards tho Pge, in v hum I had some sort of ennfi dence, and made room for this cbarmiug creature i n my b-ft hand. It was lefore the day of crinoline, but she wore some expansive gauzy garment which, as she took bcr scat, llowed over all the others, and seetneo" to leave hemline with me and the png" nbc, escept as a scientific as-iotar.t, I considered us nciicdv.

IIllon to me. You may squeeze my hand as tight as ynu please ; tlml is t.'ic only irny to keep ymir.ii IJ' from J'alliinj Even in that dim, bottle-green light, I saw a lovely 1 lu.-h steal over her damask check ; but ?he did tc.ko hold of my hand, and held it pretty tight, tuo. What an 'pnressi,.n I feel ab;iut my forehead,' observed she ; 'my brain seems on firo.' 'So d: es mine, my deer young lady,' I replied ; 'utid my heart goes pita-pat, pit apat.' S does min;.,' said she. 'I am told the phenomenon haptens in tli the subraarit o excursions.' 'Why, we ain't rdyet,' observed the page, contemptuou-ly, who bad been (most unjustifiably) listening to our conversation. I should pcrhapis have rebuked him, but ut that moment the awful bell ewung ut from terra firma. and we beheld beneath us the cold and treacherous wave. What a terrible situa ion !' ejaculated my fair companion. Not altogether,' I returned with a pres sure of the fingers. Wo are leaving all behind U9 or at least above us,' added she, for oven in that awful mumont her native correctness did not desert her. 'Heaven preserve us! what was that?' A cannon appeared in have gone off im mediately outside my ear, aad then it went on firing a royal salute and didu't stop then. I trembled like an aspen-leaf, but not so much as the beautiful being who rt-lied on me for succor. We leaned up against one another for mutual support. With my left arm, I mechanically encircled her waist ; with my right hand, I grasped half-a-dozen of th page's buttons. On one side of mo was Poetry ; on the other, Science. 'What are these dreadful guns ?' inquired the young lady. Guns !' cried the page. laughing a laugh peculiar (I hope) to water-ki lj.jes 'That's only the tinpaniem of your car a lusting, bless yer. It'll get wus and wnss, aril the top of your 'ed will be like to fly off, as it seems to you, before we gets to the bot tom. A-comin' up ycu'll like it tet ter.' 'Dear, gal,' whispered I, in tones of com fort, 'you will find some relief to lay your head upon my shoulder.' She did no, aud I caught her broken tones inquiiicg what that dreadful thing was beating against the bell, as though it wantod to get in among us. 'I hopo and trust, my goi d boy,' 6aid 6he, 'addressing the pao with sudden animation, "that it is not that eleotrical eel !' I do believe, if I had not bad fast h. I J of that boy by his buttons, that bo would have fallen off bis seat into the water, in a par oxysm of mirth, and left us without any protector. ' 'Lyr' bless ye, miss,' replied he. when be got breath enough to do so, 'that's the beating of the hair pump, that ; if that was to 6top for arf a minute, it would be all Ilookey with us in tbis 'ere bell.'

It requires two things, therefore, for its esi.-te. c strong feelings and strong command over them. X iw it is here we make a great mistake; we mistake strong fee'iti. lor strong character. A man who t ears t l: I bclcre him, before w hose frown domestics tremble, and whose bursts nf fury make the children of the household quake be cause. ho has bis will obeyed, end bis own way in all things wc call him a strong man. The truth is, that is the weak mnn: it is Ins passions that are etrcng; he mas- ! tered by them, is weak. You must meas ure the ftrength of a man by the pmwer of feelings he subdues, jiot by the power of those which subdue birr. And hence composure is very often the highest result of strength. Did we uever see a mon re ceive a flagrant insult, end only grow a little pale and then reply quietly? That is a man spirituully strong.
