The rose* yet were wreathing in her curia of sun ny hair, And the smile, the vanished apirit left upon her lip, was there; The sunset's parting ray gleamed like a glow on her brow, And crimsoned o’er her pallid cheek with an un- ^ earthly glow.

From the A>w Tork .Comlrlhition. CHANGING HUSBANDS. Aa two ladies were coming out of one of our fashionable churches the other Sunday, they somehow or other had the misfortune, in the crowd, to change husband»—>a mistake which, as both parties were going the same way, was not immediately discovered. Esch of the ladies, as soon as they had got I her gentleman by the arm, naturally began to talk with all her might in or ,der to make up for the long edema she had been obliged to maintain while in ; church. Mrs. A. addressing Mr. B. began— * My dear, what made you get asleep i in the middle of the sermon? I a in _a II _ _ ^1._i r a . . •vmaiiy ■■iiBUiru Ul jour CHIMIUCU * My conduct, my dear?* aaid Mr. B. * I’m sura 1 did'nt get ta sleep.' ' Not get to bleep! How can you tell such a fib—and on Sunday too?— Did’nt I have to jog you half a dozen times before I could wake you up?* * By no means—I hav'nt beeu asleep to-day, my dear. Surely your thoughts •oust have been strangely wandering from the purpoaea of worship, to have taken such a fancy into your head.— What m ade you imagine I was asleep?* ‘ Imag.ne, sir! there's no imagination in the case— »»*» ail matter of fact.— Why, man alive, you snored so loud as to wake up half the congregation; then you began to talk in your sleep, and if I had’nt waked you up just as 1 did, 1 don’t know what would have been the conaeqoeore. Kie! fie! my dear. I'm really ahiHkedal you.* ‘At me. Mrs. B! shocked at me! I’d have you to know, Mrs. B-.* •Mra. B.f Who's Mrs. B.? Why the mao is crar.y. Let me tell you, Mr. A. this conduct is unbecoming— lyes, Mr, A. 1*11 jast inform you, Mr. A-.» * Who the d—I is Mt. A.? W hy, Mrs. B. yon must ba crazy iostead of me.* By this time the gentleman and lady began to ba mutually anapicioas of the aoundoeas of sns another's intellect*! and looking in each othar'a faces to confirm their suspicions, thay at the asme time discovered that each had got the wrong partner. In the mean time Mrs. B. before the had got fairly over the threshold of the church, affectionately preseed the arm of Mr. A. began—*My dear, what a beautiful Ironnet Mrs- Twitched has got! Did you notice it?* •No, I did not,' replied Mr. A. 'but 1 dare say it mutt he handsome, since you commend it! I always rely upon your taste, y«ts know. By the by, my : dear, what aro you going to have for ' dinner;' * W by, a piece nfvoaat motion.' •Uoast mutton!* esrlauned Mr. A turning up hte noee—I'd as licvelat' I a piece of a torn cat. I never could endure roast mutton—the only decent way of cooking mutton it to boil it and aet it on the table with plenty of drawn butter and parsley.* ‘Indeed!* said Mrs. B. somewhat contemptuously, 'where did you learn all this knowledge of cookery, my, dear?* * Where did I learn it! Why, hav*nt j I always told you, my dear, never to] roast muttohr I'm surprised you should be so obstinate.' * And I'in surprised you should men tion this subject now—really it is the first time I ever heard you speak of it.* ‘ 'I he first time!* ‘It is, indeed—but we won't dispute about a piece of mutton in the streets.! Oh! what a charming bonnet that was: of Mrs. Twitcbell**: I do wish, mv, dear, you'd get me such a one.' ‘Certainly, if you insist upon it—but where are you going? This is not our house.* ‘Not ours! surely the man is beside himself..' With that Mrs. B. gave the bell a violent ring, and while she was waiting lor the servant, she chanced to look round, and just then discovered that she had got the wrong man, and lie perceived also that he had got the wrong wife. They, of course, gave a mutual exclamation of surprise, and began to look about them for their le gitimate partners, when presently up came the ether odd couple. A hearty laugn now ensued ; mutual apologies took place ; a re-exchange waa effected; aud Mrs. A. departed with her hus band to her own home. But the dif ferent parties, it is said, were not a little chagrined at the exposure of their particular foibles, which took place in the conversation above related. THE CASE OF MRS CHAPMAN, Who vii inilirtrt] for tli« murder of her liuibud, la*t Fall, in Pennsylvania. In opening thr ease on the part of the prosecu tion against Mrs. Chapman, Mr. Hoss, the Prose eating Attorney, made the following vtatttm-nt: "The indictment contained three counts, in all of which Mra. Chapman was charged with being the principal, in the murder of William Chapman.— The following is the substance of the testimony, to sustain which Mr. H said the prosecution were able, and should proceed to adduce evidence. “About the middle of last May, a stranger appeared, in a lone and dis tressed condition, at the residence of j Mr. William Chapman, at Anduluaia, i in this county. He asked protection tor the night, which sit readily grant ed. Ilia receptjon being cordial, as he waa considered an object of pity, he prolonged hi* stay. In a short time he contracted an intimacy with Mrs. Chapman, which continued to increase daily, until Mrs Chapman’s affections became entirely divorced from her nuaoano, ana given to the stranger. The evidence on this point will dis close a scene of the basest and black est crime. An illicit connexion was known to exist between the stranger and Mrs. C. Her friends and family saw it, and it aroused their warmest indignation. Mo open and barefaced was the woman’* infamy,that no abomi nations from her friend* had the small*' upon her. She waa repeat-1 ea# a wish that her | ”oq me iinnor’ June, this stranger lift Andulusia, and went to Philadel phia. W hile in the city he purchased * quantity of arsenic, fur the purpose, t* he sta'ed, of preparing a collection ol bird* for the Mouth American mar- i ket. He returned to Andulusia in; a day or two, and shortly after Mr.I Chapman was taken ill. On the I9*h! of June, a physieiaii was sent lor; he came, but thought it unnecessary to prescribe medicine. On the Monday follow log, Mrs. Chapman made some chicken soup fur her husband; she seasoned it while in the kitchen, and conveyed it to the psrlour, where no person was present but this stranger. In his pretence she mixed pmsun with it, end took it up to Mr. Chapman.— Mr. C. partook of a small quantity, after which it »u thrown away, as al-( *o was the ehirken of which it was made. Ducks belonging to a neigh boring farm, which were observed over the chicken and soup, died in a short time after. Mr. Chef man grew worse rapidly} ha romplamed of burning heat in his stomach ; he complained of suffering the mo*t excruciating pain, and vomited at interval# of ten or fif teen minutes. Mrs. Chapman was re quested to tend for a physician, but she refused. On Tuesday a similar! request was made, bet without effect.! A gentlemen who visited Mr. C. was' dnven from hit room, notwithstanding Mr. C.’a earnest requestIbet he might, remain. I.ate in the evening, how •: ever, a physician was sent f«r; he I came immediately and prescribed rate-1 mrl. but hv Mrs, f '# orders, not a I particle was administered. In the' morning the physician called again, and isked if the medicine had been given. Mrs. C. replied no, and that it should net be. Mr. C. lingered until the 23d June, when he expired in great pain, from the effects of poison in his sto mach., 44 Three months after, suspicions as te the cause ef Mr. Chapmen’s'death were excited by subsequent transac tions, and his body was disinterred, ind his stotnuch examined, by several physicians. They came to lheconclu lion that his death had been occasioned by poison, and not by cholera morbus, I is had been given out. In the course uf the examination, said Mr. R., we ihall lay before you a letter from Mrs. Chapman to Mins, in which are several cutious expressions, winch can only, be explained by reference to this hein ous transaction. Mrs. Chapman ascribed her husband’s death to a variety of causes. To some she averred that he had died from eat ing a large quantity of chicken ; to others she called the meat beef; to' others pork; to others veal. In nine Jays after the death of Mr. Chapman, she was married to Mina, and as >omi as she became informed that suspicions were excited against her, without offer mg a word of explanation,she prompt ly attempted an escape. These are the points which the counsel for the prose cut ion informprl inr* ih*v now proceed lo prove. THE COMET.

Some of the accounts state, that i it will approach within 20,000 miles of | us. and that it will appear to the naked1 eye as large as the full moon, with a broad coma or tail, streaming through half the heavens! We regret to sec some disposed to humor the fancies and superstitions of the weak-minded and ignoiant, by speaking of these burning bodies as celestial omens, premonitory ] of some signal calamity on earth.~ Some have already announced the ex pected visitant as the herald of war, betokening the hostile shock of uations, the revolution of states, or the dismeni berment of empires; while othei* inti mate, that it may “be intended by the Deity, as an agant to brush away the heavens and destroy the earth.” Though Science is yet as much in 1 the dark, respecting the purposes of, Comets in creation, as ignorance was cemuries ago, yei we naa hopeu that the human intellect was in far ad vanced towards troth in its researches after the arcane of their order, an to hare rid of superstitious terror.— Kapecially alter the events in Virginia, connected with the singular appearance of the Sun Iasi Summer, we hoped, at least, that prudence would have sug gested a lesaoo of eaution, and that those whose bu»ine»s it is to enlighten public sentimeot, would hare spoken of the Comet aa connected with phy ticali rather than with moral or politi cal causes. Withojt hazarding a con jecture as to the uses or ends for which they are designed, it is sufficient lor presumptuous man to know, that wild and eccentric aa they seem to the eye of reason, they constitute an indispe'n-1 sable and orderly part of a wise, har monious and magnificent whole.
