Ha ! what a toilsome race I've ran Upon this couree of strife. Since first my infant steps began To move and bound with life? How heavy has the load became Which I am doomed to bear; How wearily upon my frame Turn these frail limbs I wear? Alas, alas, I'm helpless now With old and hoary aee, Lone years of grief have blanched my brow, .. With their triumphant rage j All early hopes have vanished too Beyond my feeble grasp ; No longer them I seek to woo, Or dream their shades to clasp. The young, tho thoughtless nnd the gny, Laugh my white locks to scorn ; And hasten from my sight away As tbou'', a demon born ! With vai ..jntempt they pass me by My bending form to scan ; And with a sneering accent cry, "There goes Vie poor old man !" Ah ! they forget that long ago I too was hale and young; And with the glee of childhood's glow To their fond idols clung! That in the days of happy youth I leaped at pleasure's call ; And 'mid my comrades then, forsooth, Was gayest of them all ! How mould'ring time flings to decay The joys, we boast to span ! How soon youth's follies fide away Beneath the age of man! Swift, as tho darting eagle's flight, Tho season hurries on ; And not till launched in manhood's night Arc they aware 'tis gone! Oh! that they mitrht but understand, How oft fair childhood's flowers Could well be culled by youth's fresh hand, To cheer their after hours ! Then would life be another scene From that which round us lies; A lovety landscape, fair nnd green, Whose foliage never dies! Pittsburgh, Pa. ORIGINAL SKETCH. FOR THE CADIZ SENTINEL. CATCIII3VG A UACIIELOIt. AN APRIL FOOL STORY. BY THE EDITOR. Tho fame of the Hon. It. B- had trav elled not only over these United States, hut was well known in various parts of Europe, particu larly at the Court of St. James. He at one time represented a district of Western Pennsylvania in Congress, and while occupying a scat in that body, ho becamo distinguished for his profound learning, logical rjasonitig'and powers of elo quence. A3 a debater, he had few equals, and being a decided advocate of the Tariff policy, it appeared to be a sort of ambitious pleasure for him to meet the oppouents of that measure in wordy combat. Although an eminent and eru dite lawyer, yet he appeared to take more de light in the study of political economy and the Science of Government, than in perusing the dry pages of My Lord Coke's " black lettered lear ning." His books were tho only mistress at whose shrine he worshipped tho only deity to whom ho bowed. He mingled but little among his fellow-citizens, and was never seen enter taining " tho masses " at tho street corners and at the public houses. Occasionally, when any thing of general interest was brought before town meeting, ho would consent to mako a speech, and immediately leavp when througl Ho was rarely seen at parties of pleasure, partic ularly where tho "softer sex" were assembled and never ventured to interchange with them " those sweet unutterable words," the eloquence which lovo employs, Men of gunius are said to bo always slovenly and of course B could not help being slo venly also. Many amusing anecdotes are told of his carelessness, one only of which I will relate and then proceed to the " subject under consid oration." He had an old negro washer-woman named Nelly,, who took great delight in starch ing the line linens of our old bachelor friond. Nelly Called regularly once a week at tho rooms of the "old , coon," to take away his linens Each week tho number of pieces seemed to be decreasing, and poor Nelly began to have seri ous apprehensions that some feminine African was sharing the profits, but as long ns she was not formally dismissed, she said nothing on the subject. At length B - , in dressing him- , self one day, did not succeed in finding a single piece of linen in his wardrobe. His suspicions against Nelly were at once aroused,, and ho ac cused her of want of honesty. Sho protested her innocence. But there was the empty wardrobe, and sho alone had access to it. Nelly was dis- missed, and the milliner was set to work, to fit up a new lot. roor ieny maue uie iihuci &uuwii to some of her fiiends, determining that not a shade of suspicion should darken her fair 1 T. T II 1 .1 I. ,.,.- fame. Some person suggested to her that B , although lie put on clean linens, sometimes forgot to take off the old ones; and Nelly lost no time, to see him relative to the mailer. " Massa B ," she said, while the big tears were streaming dowu the furrows of her sable countenance, " doy tell movthat you has got nil the shirts on what was lost, sarlin it is, massa, dat Nelly is not to blame." B looked duinb-foutidtid, but the sorrowful coun tenance of the old negro forbade him treating her in any manner tho least unkind. He drop ped the Now York Albion, (a paper which he was fond of perusing,) and upon examination, actually discovered that ho had fourteen ihirli on! But, I have digressed. I have said that B had an aversion to the society of ladies, md as he had seen the flowers of some fifty summers h 00m on I us beauiliui eann, 11 was scarcely presumable that he possessed a hearl vulnerable to the shufls of Cupid. Some w;igs who were acquainted with the peculiarities of bis character, took it into their heads to have sport at his expense on the fust of April last, all fool's day." Judge B -of the U. Court was a particular friend of Mr. B , and whenever he visited the city of P , our hero never failed to call upon him. The Judge generally put up at tbo houao of Mr. A , who had a very interesting and accomplished daughter. The aforesaid wags, it appears, had ap prized Miss A of the trick they proposed playing off, and having no particular aversion to fun, she yielded her consent. On the morning of the first of April, our wags came across the old bachelor, and (old him that his friend Judge B was in town, at tho house of Mr. , and wished to see him forthwith. lost no time, but stalled down town B- immediately. Arriving at ihe house of Mr. he rang the bell, and Miss A received h:m at Ihe door, and invited him to walk in. "I wish lo see Judge B ; I be lieve he stops with you, said the old woman hater, looking through his spectacles very anx iously upon tho pleasant countenance of the d-imsel.--" No, sir, he does nol. nor have I heard that he is in the cily at all." B was com plelely " obflusticated," as they say out in Illi nois: " he spake not a word. But like a dumb statue or brcathlens stone. Stared on the damsel, nnd look'd deadly pale." " There was silence for the space of" consid erable time. Jj bit His nnger nuns, an amusonient of which he was very fond, but could not got a word out. " O! were I in tho Court House, (thought he to himself,) in the midst of a difficult ejectment suit, ov in Congress demolish ing tho arguments of South Carolina milliners and Virginia abstractionists any where else but here. What am I to do? whither shall 1 flee?" At length, Miss A broke the silenco, (ladies arc always tho first to break silence,) but she did not tell him that it was the first ot April, as she was fully conscious that he was aware of that fact already! Miss A was justly celobratod for her line conversational powers, and she entertained Mr. B very agreeably indeed. His em barrassment passed ofiTike a summer's cloud, and the sunshine of the lady's brilliant eyes beamed bright and beautiful before him. Ho was in a steel trap! Tirno flew unheeded by hours ap peared but as momenta to our hero; and it was not until "twilight dews were falling," that the old bachelor was aware of tho length of his visit. For once in his lifo he fell "all ovcrish," as Jon athan Slick says, and began lo think that there were " more things in heaven and earth, than were dreamed oft' in his philosophy." Ho told the young ludy a round unvarnished talo of his bachelor lifo -a bachelor's troubles and a bache lor's clouds! And "these things to hear did Miss A seriously incline;" and sho told him if ho had any good friend of his, who wish ed to shako off tho dull monotony of single bles sedness, he had but to teach him how to repeal his own tale, and that would woo her. Upon this hint, like Othello, the Moor, did the old bachelor himself speuk. His heart had been touched by the elect t ic flame of love, and it was "love at first sight," loo! He declared his pas sion whether on bended knees or not, this de ponent is not informed " popped the question," as they say down east among the Yankees, and was accepted! " Not so badly fooled, after all," said Cuiblos to himself, as he was leaving tho house of Mr. A true I have not seen my friend of the woolsack and black robes, but who cares 1 have wooed and won a fair maiden in double quick time. Sho is intelligent, and what is bet ter, has a glorious fine ankle! The young wtgs will laugh out of tho other side of their mouths, who fooled mo so bad! ha! ha! ha!" J lie "old cooii" tasted the honey on the young maiden's lips, and bade her good night ! B visited iho houso of Mr. A daily, and he became so fond of tho society of Miss A , that ho fell miserable when ab sent from her. Coko and Plowdcn, were allow ed to slumber on dusty shelves essays on banks, tariffs and political economy, were thrown asido as drv and useless. " Lalla Rookh" and the " Loves of the Angols" wcro considered deci dedly sentimental, useful, instructing and alto- gether the best works for a man's library ! Moon light rambles along the margin of the limpid Al legheny, at the witching hour of midnight, when Diana's silvery beams were dancing upon the Lluo waters, were regarded as more conducive to health and happiness, than " trimming the midnight lamp," in a close, illy ventillatcd room. And he thought Tasso was a happy mortal and a w. so man, and Lord Is icon was a fool ! Bear s oil, otto of roses, cologne, and all that sort ling, were put into requisition to flavor the old bachelors person, when in the company of his Laura! What great fools these old bache lors will make of themselves! they are infinite ly wotsc than the sickly, sentimental school-boy of seventeen summers! Whithersoever went M'ss A , there was seen Mr. B : he stuck to her closer than a brother. In the ball 100:11, the "dry bones" of Benedict might le heard rattling among the soft and tender sinews of 1 It t lo boys and girls, like an old oaken tree shorn of its bark, amidst a nursery of young shoots! And in the holy sanctuary, where nev er before was seen his countenance, ho was a weekly visiter, and even if Miss A seated herself in. tho choir, there was Mr. B at nor side, even thougn tuo whole congregation hold split their sides with laughter! Perseve rance, said cicneca, will scale tlio most rugged mountain; and it is only by perseverance, some times, that men can expect lo win the object of their adoration. My last daily paper from the city of P- containcd the following an nouncement, right under a picture of two hearts pierced by an arrow: "Married, on the instant, by the Rev. G U , D I)., the Hon. II. B to Miss A. E. A , daugh ter of J. A Lsq., all of this city." Who wouldn't be an" April Fool!" SHORT PATENT SERMON. Those are the words of my text for this occasion. Touch us gently time Let us glide adowu thy stream Gently an we sometime glide Through a quiet dream! My hearcis you may travel all over the world, and at the same time you are doing nothing but going through the world. This you know, as well as I, is sometimes hard digging; but a little pushing, perseverance, and tho sweet oil of hope, generally overcome all difiicultes. No matter where wo seek repose in this jostling world, Time will keep stirring us up with sticks and po- King straws at us. roots talk about tune Hit ting by, with silken wing and rustling sound, and feet that gently fall on flowers; but for my part, 1 think he comes tiainping along with the big gest kind of boots, crushing at every tread some of us, fioor insects, into tho dust of death, and most horribly mangling others. iJy friends if piayors would avail any thing, would be our daily petition that Time would touch us gently that we might be permitted to glide down tho stream of lite as gently as we sometimes glide through a pleasant dscam. Life liter all, is little more than a dream. Wo revel imid imaginary pleasure grunt and groan be neath fancied ilis have now and then a touch of tlio nightmatc and are occasionally delight ed with the deceitful visions of bliss. I some times doubt whether I really live and move and have a being, or am laboring under a pleasant de lusion who'ih'ei'j'as the Iranscendentalist would say, there is au actuality affiliated with nn ideal and carnasious existence. But what's the odds loiv me to ask, so long as we are happy? My dear friends as for asking Time to touch us gently, we might as well request a thunder bolt to descend without noise, in consequence of family sickness. While time handles us ten derly kisses and caresses us, as it were, with parental affection waters and nourishes ottrope uing buds of dolight. fills our bosoms with bo nnets of hone's lovliest flowers allows neither care, trouble nor sorrow to torment us and with a wary wing, secins careful not to brush a parti cle! ot youthful bloom from our chocks. But, my dearly beloved brethren, when a few years have rolled away, wc fi-el that time drives us in his old wagon along rougher roads than wo have been accuulomed to travel, and at a much swift er pace; that ho is sowing salt in the once green pasture? ot our hearts that ho is strew ing thorns and thistles where sweetest of rosos once bloomed and that ho is robbing us ot joys winch tho world can never again bestow. When wc look in the glass and find furrows ploughed in our ficoa, wrinkles upon our brows, and whole handfuls of hair torn from our top knots, we cannot but cotno to tho conclusion that Time has handled us roughly; and enter taining this idea, wo are not quite so much mis taken as wa3 tho somnambulis', who imagined that a moonbeam had set his shirt-tail a-firc. My worthy hearers let Timo use you as he may, you ought all to prepare for tho dread cri sis that awaits you. Commence to-day, for you are not sure of living any decent length of tunc. Nay, lo-moriow you may bo cold tallow, done up in tho rag and laid aside. Even you, little babies! you admired specimens of domestic man ufacture ! you juvenile joys of milk ! Yon may spring a leak in less than a week, and let life's contents soak into the earth; andwhero will you be, I ask, unless your parents possess sufficient piety to oflbr up sufficient prayers in your be half? And you older ones! tho hoops may fly olf from your barrels before you are aware of it, allowing all the vital brino to escape, and leave you tainting in tho moulding sepulchre. Time, the old man-rnowcr, is in the midst of us all whetting his scythe- for the next fatal stroke. 1 know not tho victim soon to fall before his keon edged bushwhacker, or I would point him out. Perhaps it is myself; for I feel that I am almost gono to seed, and am half ripo for the harvest; but certain it is that somo 0110 must shortly go for on every side wc constantly behold, in Ihe great family of mankind, many falling into dust to rise no more. Oh! it is a melancholy Bight lo see so many of our friends annually dropping, like loaves and tendrils from the troos, to be trod upon by thc'carcless foot of posterity, and have tho ploughs of generations intermingle their sacred ashes with tho vilo earth that nourishes potatoes, pumpkins, turnips and toadstools! It is mournful to reflect upon iho frailty of human ox'sterrco ; and sadder still lo think that llio bcau- tiful materials of mortals should thus be cast to the four winds of heaven, or loft to rot and en rich the soil from whence they sprang. But, my dear friends, we have this consolat ion, that while wo drop a tear npon tho dust of former friend ship, we can say, in tho assurance of heavenly hope, his is not the end of man. So mote it be! Dow Jr. CHOICE SELECTIONS. The Ball Itoom and Home. A bll room! what a scene of cominon-place! how hackneyed in novels, how trite in ordinary life, and yet bill rooms h ivo a character in all igcs. something in the l'ghis, the crowd, the music, conduces to stir up many of the thoughts that belong to t'mcv and romance. It is a mel ancholy scene to men after a certain age. It re vives m.iny of iltosc lghter and more graceful images connected with the wandering desires of youf-: fhudows that crossed us, nnd secerned love, but were not, having much 01 ine grace and charm, but none of the pnssion and tragedy of love. So many of our earliest and gentlest lecollcclions ate connected with those chalkcu floors, and that music painfully gay, and those quiet nooks and corners, where the talk that ho vers about the heart and does not touch it has been held. A part and unsympalhising in that austercr wisdom which comes to us after deep passions have been excited wo see form after torm chasing the uutteillics mat dazzle us no lougcr among tho flowers that have evermore lost their fragrance.

"Life, as well as all other things, has its bounds assigned by nature; and its conclusion like the lust act of a play, is old age the fatigue of which we ought to shun, especially when our appetites are fully. satisfied. -Cicero. Socrates, on the day of his execution, a little before the draught of poison was brought to him entertaining his friends with a discourse on the immortality of the soul, has these words: " Whe ther or no God will approve of my actions, know not, but this I am sure of, that 1 have at all times made it my endeavor to please him, and I have a good hope that this my hope will be ac cepted by htm." "In this life no mm has so much care as he who endeavors after the most happiness." JSion Epaminondas, being asked whether Chabrias. fphicrates, or ho himcelf, deserved most to be esteemed, replied, "lou must hist see us die before that question can be answered." "Death only closes a man's reputation, and determines it as good or bad." Phahtris. " It is in human lifo as in a game at table one may wish wo had tho highest cast; but if our chance be otherwise, it i3 our duty to play as well as we can. and make the best of it. 7 Plu larch. Silenus, being asked what was the bpst thing that could behd man, answered, " ihat was beat fur all never to be born, or to die immc diatcly after one's birth." " Thrice happy they, beneath their northern skies. Who Ihat worst fear, the tear ot death, despise: Hence they no cares for this frail being feel, But rush undaunted on the pointed steel; Provoke approaching fate, and bravely Scorn To snare that life, which must too soon return." Lucan. "Oh, the precarious turns of human stata! How blind is man how thoughtless of his fate! Oft through his limbs death's fatal arrows creep. When, Bunk, he lies in luxury and sleep.' " Be not grieved ahove measure for thy de ceased friends; they arc not dead, but have only finished th it loumey which it is necessary for every one of 113 to take. We ourselves must go to that place of reception, in whxh they are all of them assembled; ami in this general rendez vous of ninukind, livo together in another state of being." Antiphancs. TiairTATio.v. To resist temptation once, is nol sufficient proof of honesty. If a servant, in deed wuto to te.sist the continued temptation of silver lying in a window, as some people let it lie, when he is sure his master docs not know how much there is of it, he would give a strong proof of honesty. But this is a proof to which you have no right to put a man. You know, hu manly speaking, there is a certain degree of teniptation which will overcome any virtue. Now, in so fir as you approach temptation fo a man, you do him an injury; and, if ho is over come, you share his guilt.- Johnson. Ciiastitv. How largo a portion of chastity is sent out of tho world by distant hint, or nodded away, and cruelly winked into suspicion by the envy of those who are past all temptation of it themselves. How does the reputation of a help less creature bleed by a report which the party, who is at the pains to propagate it, beholds with much pity and fellow-feeling that she is hear tily sorry for it- -hopes in God, that it is not true; however, as Archbishop Tillotson wittily ob serves upon it, is resolved, in the mean time, to give tho report her pass, that at least it may have fair play to take its fortune in the world to be believed or not. according to tho charity into whoso hands it shall happen lo fall. Sterne. Happiness. The carlh can bear a great do grco of happiness; can boar it for long without its bringing with it a curse or a disappointment. It is in stillness nd in retirement where this good fortune blooms tho best, and on that ac count the world knows little of it, and has little faith in it. But, thank God! it may bo abun dantly found in all times and in oil countries; and it is we whisper this to tho blessed ones in order that wo may rejoice wiih them it is of extremely rare occurrence when it haimons in actual life, as, for the sake of effect, it happens in books, that a strong current of happiness car ries along with it unhnppincss ns in a drag-rope The Joyois One. Adelaide devoted very much time to her children; yet she continued tor many others " a song of joy," iudisponsablo at all festivities; and wherever her kind, fair counte nance showed itself, under lowly roof or in lofty costle. bv the song of mourning or the marriage hymn, there was she greeted ns a messenger cf heaven sent iorlh with consolation ana joy. one was still the swan of whiteness, freshness, slen- dcrncss, and grace, and the happiness of her home was the living well 111 winch sue oatnea her wings. Benefits and Injuries. There needs no greater subtlety to prove that both benefits and injuries receive tneir value irom me tiiieiiiioii, when even brutes themselves ate able to decide this question. Tread upon a dog by chance, 01 put him to pain upon tho dress.ng ot a wound; the one he passes by as an accident, and the oth er, in h's fashion, he acknowledges as a kind ness; but offer to strike at hi in, and though you do him no hurt at all, he flics yet in the face of you, even for the m.sciiief you barely mount to him. The Dvixo. But tho truth is, there belongs to a dweller on the boidets of the kingdom ol death, a peculiar rank, a peculiar worth, and the man believes that the whispering of spirits from the mysterious land reaches the car which bow itself to them on this account the wise and the strong of the earth listen silently, liko disciples and piously like little children, lo the precepts that are breathing forth Irom dying lips. A Bhoke.n FoitTtrxE. Ovid finely compares a broken fortune to a falling column; the lower it sinks the greater weight it is obliged to sustain Thus, when a man's circumstances are such that he has no occasion to borrow, he finds numbers willing to lend him; butshould his want be such, that he sues for a trifle, it is two to one whether he may be trusted with the smallest sum.- -Gold smith. Vamty. Tho vanity of voting men in having fine clothes, and new-fashions, and valuing them selves by them, is one of the most childish pieces of folly that can be, and the occasion ot great Diofuseness. and undoing of young men. Avoid curiosity nnd too much expensiveness in your apparel: be comely, plain, decent, cleanly, not curious nor costly; it is a sign 01 a wean neao niece to be sick for every new fashion, or to think himself tho better in it, or the worso with out it. Labor the only Source of Wealth. It ii to labor that man owes everything possessed of changeable value. Labor is tho talisman that has raised him from the condition of the savage that has changed the desert and the lorcst into cultivated fields; thai has covered the earth will cities and the ocean with ships; that has given us plenty, comfort, and eleg'.mce, instead of want misery, and barbarism. Encyclopaedia Pritanni- ca. Slander and scandal differ much in the man nor of their attack. Slander is " the pestilence that waikelh in daikness," but scandal is " the destruction that waste! h at noonday." Scanda seldom looks forward to !ho consequences of its acts, and sometimes repents of them; slander ev or looks at the result of its labors, and is disap pointed 11 it, la;l in its object. Slander is dehbe rate: scandal is thoughtless. Malice is the com pnnion of the one; folly is tho comrade of the other. OATIEEIJIiVCiS ASD GOSS1PIXGS. " A snapper up of unconsidered triflea."

Polk of Tennessee, whilst a member of Congress, in January, 1833, is a triumphant refution of the charge that he is an advocate of Free Trade.'1'' . It will be perceived, that so far from having defended the doctrines imputed to m by the whigs, he advocated a bill affording Ihe amplest jrotection to the manufacturing in terests: " No member of the committee (of which ho was one.) who yielded his assent to this bill, I may safely affirm, desires to prostrate the manu- icttirer, nor Will such, in their ludgment be th effect of the bill. I venture to affirm that the bill, so far from prostrating these establishments. iflbrds sufficient incidental protection to ena ble all such as ate based on real, not borrowed, capital, and which arc conducted with economy and skill, not only to stand, under this bill, but to realize greater rales of profit upon the capital and labor employed, than is derived from any other regular bmincss in the country ." . Does this look like "Fkee Thadi:?" 1HA Clay scolt Kandolph's I.ifel On pages 209 and 300 of a "Biography of Cloy? written by his fiiend George D.

The unseemly garment constituted such a vast circumference, that tho locality of the thin and swarthv Senator wa3 at least a matter of very vague conjecture.
