T IIE Commander-in-Chief has received the melancholy intelligence of the death of Brigadier Ueneral G, J.

BEINI. MIMS8, Excntor. As AMEatcAN PoETEss RN IsoNDoN."-Thte ILon don Sun. in noticing the Monthly, say., "as a specimen of its poetry we quote some beautiful lines for a Child at play with a Watch.' The writer is Mrs Osgood, of Boston, the wife of a yqumg artist, now trying his-peticil in London. "Art thou laughing at Time in thy sweet baby glee? Will he pause on his pinions to frolic with thee? Oh! show him those shadowless innocenteyes, That smile with bewilder'd and beaming sur prise; Bid himl look on that cheek where that rich hair reposes, Where dimples are playing 'be peep' with the roses! His wrinkled brow press with light kisses and varnm, And-clasp his rough neck in thy soft-wreathing ann! Perhaps thy infantine anid exquisite sweetness May win hlm for once todelay inhls fleetness, Then-then would I keep thee my beautiful child! Thy blue eyes unclouded, thy bloom utdefiled, With thy innocence only to guard thee from ill, In life's sunny dawning-a lily-bud still! . Laugh on, my own Ellen. Iis voice, which to Ine Gives a warning so solemn, makes music for thee ;. And while I atthose sounds feel the idler'sannoy, Thou hear'st but the tick of the pretty gold toy ! Hlis smile is upon thee, my bless'd,my own! Long may it be ere thou feelest his frown. And oh, may his tread, as he wanders with thee, Light and soft as thine own *' fairy step be; And still through all seasons, in storms, and fair weather, May tine and any Ellen be playnatestogcther!" MisecIlaneous. (inllighanie's heenger. published at Paris, furnishes the following interesting aecount of a new musical wonder, in the shape of Monsieur Mareppe's automaton violin player, which was not long since exhibited before the Royal Con servatory at Paris-and caused much admiration. Oin entering the saloon, I saw a well dressed handsome figure of a man, apparently between 40 and 50, standing with a violin ill his hand, as il contemplating a piece of music, which lay on a desk before him-and had I not gone to see an autonmaton, I should have believed the ohject helbire te endowed with life and reason, so per fectly natural and easy were the attitudes an ex pression ofcountenance of' the figure. I had but little time for observation before tha orches tra was filled by musicians, and on the lender taking his sent, the figure instantly raised itself erect, be.wed with miutch elegance two or three tines, and then turning to the leader. notdded. as if to say, he was ready. and placed his violin to his shoulder. At the given signal lie raised his how, and applyving it to the instrument, pro duced a Ia 'agiiai.one of the most thrilling and extraordinaurv flourishes I ever heard-in which scarcely a seumi-tone within the compass of the instrutment was omitted-and thi4 executed with a degree of rapidity and clearness perfectly as touishling. '[lie orchestra then played a short symphony, in which the automaton occasionally joited in a heautiful style. lIe then played a most brilliant fintsia in E natural with accompa niments, including a movement alegro mnollo on the futrth string solo, which was perfectly ibde scribnble. The tones produced were like any thing but a violin=-tho expression beyond con eeption. I felt as if lifted from my seat, and burst into tears-in which predicament I saw most persons in the room. Studdenaly lie struck itnto a cadenza, in which the harmomecs double and single, arpef ion on the f'htr strings, and sa'ltos, for which Paiganinai wvas so justly celebrated, were itntroduaced with thme grentest effect; and anter a close shake of 8 bars dutratin, cotmmenced the coda, a presstissima movemient, played in three parts throtighont. This part of the pierfornane was perfectlymiagi cal. I have hteardl the great Italiana. I haveheard the still greater Norwegian. I have heard the biest of mnic, bitt I never heard sneh sounads as thetn salttd miy car. It commenced P P p. rising by a gradnual crescendo to a pitch ahnost beyond he lief; andI then by a grautal mnotendo and calendo died awvay, leavimg the audience absolutely en chanted. *Monsieur Mareppe' wvho is a palayer of tao mean order, thenii stepped uip amidst 'thme most deafening acclnamntions, and stated thatema lated by the example ofVanecnnson's flute palayer, Ihe had conceived thin project of constructing 'this figure, which had cost him many years of study and lnhor before lie could brmng it to -comtpletion. Ie then showed to the conmpatny tihe interior of the figure, wvhich was completely filled with small cranks, lby which the motions are given to thme several parts ofthe automatona at the will of the coanducetor, who has thle whole man cline so perfectly undaer control, that Monisienr Mairoppe proptosets that the auatomaton shall pr form anyv piece of muatsic that shall lbe laid before himn wvnthim a fortnight. He also showed tant to a certaiti extent the figu're was self acting, as on winading tupan string, several af the most heau. tiful airs were played, afnong wvhich were 'Nel eor pina,' 'Partant ponr Ia Syrie,' Welber,.slast WValtz,' and 'La ci d'arem In mann,' all with splendid emhellishmeunts. Buit the chief d'oeu v'reis the mantier in whlichfthe figure is maude to obey the direction of the conductor, wvhereby it is endowed with a sorts of semi-reason.

Mrs. Crawford, in her Antohiographic Sketches, gives the following singular ai eedote : "At a party some few years ago, I wi attracted by an object, interesting in itse and likewise in strong contrast to the su rounding scene. Nenr the gay groups the dancing room, looking in their rninhn costumes like beds of tulips. or flights butterflies, sat one of the most lovely at innocent faced creatures I ever beheld.. She was a young, very young wilow, a rayed ini her wveeds, and simple mellah cap, that is itself a mnonody maore ufleeii thtan ever p~oet wrote. Oin inquiring wi she was, I learnedl some interesting parti ulars respecting her. A few' months art her marriage, she was takena ill, and felli to a trance, which lasted for upwards of fortnight.

Anecdotes of Anainmnl Insint.-in a p per in the Junie numleer of th~e Bibliotheq Universelle de Geneve,(so ably edited lay I de le Rive, whao read several'piapers a~t t: British association) there are some curio anecdotes, tending to prove howv near, tnt quite, to the power of reasoninag the ti tions of animals approach. Two men wv were abaout to wvalk to Vovev, agreed meet at on appoinited place. One of thei whoa arrived first. fancying lie was too laa resolved to push on anad overtake his eoi rade ; but his dog showed symptoams of d liking this proeeedinag. lie ran backwat and forwvard s, lingered behind, and at lent totally disappeared, bumt speedily return with the wvalking stick of the second per. in his mouth, lHe had conme late and down to wvait for his friend, biut the saga ty of the animal resorted to this evidt means of teaching them their relative pa tions and bringing them together. Anotl dog which they were trvimr to mount ladder, got so tired of his lesson that he run away; but the next day lie rettrncd alone ti to the ladder, and applied himself to-the- it task just as if his vanity-had been piqued d. into learning the exercise. A third dog that a was taught to carry a lantern with his own- d er,.on winter mornings, before daylight, as a the latter carried- milk -to - a neighboring tl farmer, happened one day to be shut tp ei when his maaterdeparted. When lodsoned, p he ran and overtook him, but, perceiving- 1 he had not the lantern, he returned to the tc house, and crising it to be given to hin, al again hastened to his accustomed light It work.

Uigh- i tower, a young gentleman 17 ypare of age, r was brought here a few weeks sincp to pro cure the benefit of a surgical operation. H is - disease was congenital cataract. The op- 0 eratioa was performed two weeks ago by ? r Professor Dudley, in lis Amphitheatre;in it lthe;presence of more than 200 young gen- IT tlemen,- and we are happy to say that he is P now enjoying the exquisite pleasure of pe holding and admiring the beautiesof nature. N ; The long night of obscurity through which ( he has passed from his birth to the present ii time, is thus suddenly and delightfully inter- B rupted, and lie is now exercising his young and hitherto untried vision, in distinguishing s d colors, forms and the relationship of objects d around him. A young gentlemen 21 years old, from Tennessee, and a youth 14 from a Pennsylvania, have each been operated h upon for cataract existing from birth, within t the past year, by the s;me distinguished strgeoh.
