Yes, social friend, I love thee well, In learn'd Doctor's spite; I love thy fragrant, musty smell, I love thy calm delight. What if they tell with phizzes long, Our years are sooner past; I would reply, with reason strong, They're sweeter while they last. And oft, mild tube, to me thou art, A monitor though still, Thou speak'st a lesson to my heart, Above the Preacher's skilL. When in the lonely evening hour Attended but by thee, O'er history's varied page I pour, Man's fate in thine I see. Awhile like thee, the hero burns, And smokes and fumes around, And then like thee to ashes turns, And mingles with the ground. Thou'rt like the man of worth who gives To goodness every day, The fragrance of whose virtue lives When he has passed away. Oft when the snowy column grows And tumbles to decay, I trace how mighty realms thus rose, Thus broke and fell away. From beggar's frieze to monarch robe, Our common doom is passed Sweet lIature's works the mighty globe. Must all burn out at last. And what isiie that smokes thee now, A little moving heap, That soon like thee to fate must how, Like thee in (lust must sleep. And when I see thy smoke roll high, Thy ashes downward go; 'This thus methinks my soul shall fly, Thus leave ny body low. A SMOKER. Jan. 10, 1838. From the Providence (IR. I.) Patriot. THE SUM OF LIFE. Searcher of gold, whose days and nights All waste away in anxious eare, Estranged from ill of life's delights.

Lover of woman, whose sad heart Wastes like a fountain in the sun, Clings most where most its pain docs start, Dies by the light it lives upon Come to the land of graves-for here Are beauty's smile and beauty's tear, Gather'd in holy trust. Here slumber forms as fair as thoso Whoe cheek, now living, shn, s the rose. Their glory turn'd to dust. Lover of fame, whose foolish thought Steals onward from the wave of Time, Tell tme-what goodness hath it.hbrought, Atoning for that restless crime1?

And warrior-thou with snowy plume, That guest to the bugle's call, Come and look down-this lonely tomb Shall hold thee and thy glories all The haughty brow, the manly frame, The daring deeds, the sounding fanme, Are trophies bu~t for death; And millions who have toil-d like the Are stay'd, and he-e they sleep.

[A writer on French Novels in the South em Review quotes the following story from Mill's History of the Crusades.] "The delights of love have made Alex ander pause in the career of abbition. Hi% hosts.of Knights and Barons were diseon tented at the change, and Aristotle, as the tutor and guardian of his youthful course, endeavored to arouse anew the spirit of the hero. The prince attempted no lengthened reply to this appeal to his chivalry. I "Sighing, alone he cried, an inly mov'd, I Alas! these men me-seems, have never lov'd" Thegrave saws of the sage took root. how - ever, in Alexander's heart. and he absented himself from his mistress. She veiled her a fate for some time in solitude, but at length f assured that it was not the mere capricious- I ness of passion which kept him from her, t she forced herself into the presence of her I lord. ier beauty smiled away all his r dreams of glory from his mind, and in the s fondness of his love, he accused Aristotle of I breaking in upon his joy. But the domin- I ion of his passion was only momentary, and I recovering the martial tone of his soul, lie v declared the sad necessity of their parting. 1i She then requested a brief delay, promising i to convince the King that his Tutor's coun- i sel derived no additional recommendation v from hi practice, for that he stood in need % of as much instruction as Alexander him - l1 self. Accordingly, with the first appcr- I arree of the next morning, the damsel re paired to the lawn before the chamber where Aristotle lay. On approaching the , casement, she broke the stillness of the air by chaunting a love ditty, and the sweetness of her wild notes charmed the philosopher from his studious page. lie softly stole to the window, and beheld a form far fairer t than any image of truth which his fancy had just previously been conceiving. Her face was not shrouded by veil or wimple, 1 her lung flaxen tresses strayed negligently down her neck,. and her dress, like drapery I on an ancient statue, accurately expressed the beauty of a well turned limb. She loi tered about the place on pretence of gath ering a branch of a myrtle-tree, and wind ing it round her forehead. When her con fidence in her beauty assured her that Aris totle was mad for her love she stole under neath the casement and in a voice checked I by sighs, she sang that love detained her there. Aristotle'drank the delicious sounds and gazing again, her charms appearcd more resplendent than before. Reason faintly whispered that lie was not horn to be loved, and that his hair was now white with age, his forehead wrinkled with study. but passion and vanity drove away these faint remonstrances, and Aristotle was a1 sage no more. Thedamsel carelessly pass- I ed his window: and in the delirium of his love he caught the flonting folds of hier rohe. She listened to his confession with a sur prise of manner that fanned his flame, and she answered him by complaining of the late coldness of Alexander. The grey beard, not caring for a return of love, so that she accepted his suit, promised to bring his pupil to her feet, if she would but confer some sign of favor upon himself. She feign ed an intention of compliance, but declared, that before she yielded, she must be in dulged a foolish whim which had long dis tracted her fancy. Aristotle then renewed his professions of devoted love, and she, in sentences broken by exclamations of appa rent slhame at her folly, vowed that she wvas dying to mount and ride on the bask of a wise man. lie was now so passionately in love, that the fancies of his mistress appea edl divinest wisdom to has miind, and he immediately thre w humself along the~ ground in a crawling attitude. She seated herself on a gorgeous saddle which she placed upon his bach, and throwlngsreina around his neck, she urged him to proeed. in a few moments they reached the terrace under the royal apartments, and the King beheld the singular spectacle. A peal of anoghter from the windows awoke the philosopher to a sense of his state, anid when be saw his pupal, he owned that youth might well yield to love, as it had power to break oven the frost of age."

From the "Sketchs of Westem Adventuere," Early in the fall of 1793. two boys by :he name of Johnson, the one twelve and the other nine years of age. were playing in the banks of Short creek, near thei mouth :f the luskinguin, and occasionally skip ing stones into the water. At a distance, hey saw two men, dressed. like ordinary ettlers, in hats and coats, who gradalily ipproached them, and from time to time hrew stones into the water, in imfitatiou of he children. At length, when within one landred yards of the boys, they suddenly ,hrow of their masks, and rushing rapidly 'pon them took them prisoners. They woved to be Indians of the Deleware tribe. Paking the children in their arms. they ran rastily into the woods; and afler a rapid narci of about six miles, they encamped or the night. Having kindled a fire, and nying their rifles and tomahawks against t tree, they lay down to rest each with. a woy in his arms. The children as may be eadily supposed, % ere too much apitated to leep. The eldest at length began to move is limbs cautiously. and finding that the ndian who held him remained ist asleep, ie gradually disengaged himself from his irms, lie walked to the fire, which had urnt low, Ile remained several minutes it suspense of what was to be done. Hav rig stirred the fire, and ascertained the xac? position of the enemy's arms, lie vhispered softly to his brother to imitato uis example, and if possible to extricate imself from his keeper. The little boy did s his brother directed. And both stood rresolute around the fire. At length the Idest, who was of a very resolute dispo ition, proposed that they should III the leeping Indians, and returned home. The Idest pointed at one of the guns, and ns urbd his brother that if he would pull the rigger of int gun after he had placed if to est, lie would answer for the other Indian ['he plan was agreed upoti. The rifle was eveled, with the muzzle restina on a log. vhich lay near: and having stationed his ittle brot her at the breceh. with positive rders not to tuch the trigger until ie ga-.e lie word, lie then seized. the tomahawk. mid advanced cautinusly to the sleeper. such was the nitation of the younger bro her however, that he towi-hed the trigger on soon, and the report of his gun awake'i lie other Indian before his brother was quite ire pared, He struck the blow, however, vith firmness, ahhough in the hurry of the ret it was lone with the blunt part of the iatehet, and only sinnned his antagonict. uickly repeating the blow, however with lie edge, he inflicted a deep wound utponi h6 ludian's head, and after repented trokes left him lifeless upon the spot. The other, frightened at the explosion of iis own gun. had alrealy taken to his scra ers., and with much diflicnhy was overta ;en by his brother. Having regained the and by which they had advanced, the -I ler fixed his lint upon a bush to mark the pot. and by daylight they regained their somes, They found their mother in -ni gony of grief for their loss, and ignoranrt vhether they had been drowned or taken by ie Indians. Their talk was heard with istonishient, not uhimingled wiith ineredui ity. and a few of the neighbours insisted up in accompanying them to the spot where so ~xtraordinary a rencontre had occurrrcd. I're place was soon found, andI the truth of lie boys' atory placed beyoend a doubt. Thre omnahawked Imdian lay in his blood where ie fell, but thre one who had beern shot was 1ot to be fournd. A broad trail of blood, how ,ver, enabled themn to track hris footsteps, iur Ihe was at length overtaken. Ihis uin 1er jaw had been enitirely shot away, arid ris hands anrd breast were entirely covered with clotted blood. Th'lough very munch exhausted, hre still kept his puirsirers ai hay anrd faced threnm from tirie to time, with at nir of determoinedl resolution. Eithrer huis gory appearance, or thre appsrehenrsioni t'al more were in thre nieighborrhoodl, hadl such an efTeet ripen his pursuers, thrat, riotwith standing their numbers, yet lie was,~ permit ted to escape. Whlethecr Ihe survived1 or per ished in the wihderness, coubil riot bte ascer tained ; but fromi thne severity of ihie wvoum the latter suppositioni is most probable.
