Ani wnfts o'er intervening eus Sweet o'liirx from the Heppcritlcs! A wind that through the corridor Just stirs the curtain, and no more, Ani. touching the gentian strings, Paints with the burden that it brings! Come back! ye frienpidiips long departed! That likeo'erflowingstreamlets started, And now are dwindled one by one, To stony charutels in the Sun! t Come back! ye friends whose lives are ended Come back, with all that light attended, Which seem'd to darken and decay When yo arose and went away! They come, the shapes of Joy and woe, The airy crowds of long ago; The dreams and fancies known of yore, They change the cloister of the night Into a garden of delight; They make the dnrk'and dreary hours Open and blossom into flowers! I would not steep! I love to be Alone in their fair company; But ere my lips can bid them stay, They pass and vanish quite away! Alas! our memories ny retrace Each circumstance of time and place; Season and scene enmc back again, Ami outward things unchanged remain; The rest we cannot reinstate, Ourselves we cannot recreate, Nor get oursouls to the same key. Of the remembered harmony! Rest ! rest! 0 give me rest, a pence! The thought of love that ne'er shall cause Has something in it like despair, .4 weight I am to weak to bear!

I felt a weight where'er I went I felt a void within my brain.

THE DOUBLE MARCIAGE. BY THE COCNTK89 D'AUTICHAMP. The political dissentions that have ag. Snaln for more than twenty year have forced many families to leave their country, and seek a more tranquil home elsewhere. Bordeaux, for instance, con ..In. mote than twenty thousand Span iards; and in this city a happy tympath exists between the indigenous popula onil t rancors. Th Gascon character,, frank, quick' light and resolute, blends easily with the violent passionateness of the Spaniards; and the Castillian gravity equally accom modates itself with the vain frankness of Bordelais. The demands of society and the interests of commerce lave done the rt: and therefore "have arisen frequent marriages, and bonds, which have all the uermanency of friendship In 18, the Countess of Alcantara m. to reside at Bordeaux.

On a certain day, as one spoke of love and the other rejoiced in the hap' pincss of being beloved In,' observed tho Count, using one of those charming diminutives which give so much grace to the Spanish language ' you loveme, I know; why prolong what your poets and ours call iny mar tyrdom?

Slack water navigation wss the hobby of Clinton; whilo a modern university was the pet child of Jefferson's old age; so iho Pacific Railroad may afford an all absorbing thought for the mighty mind of Denton, during the last days of his earthly pilgrim age. As clinlon built up the commercial greatness of New York, so did Jefferson the educational interests of Virginia, and so shall Ben ton the railroad interest of the widely separated sea coasts of this nation. The importance of a railroad, which shall connect the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, is not now denied by any one. But whore between what points- shall this connection be made? We would answer, between such points as shall bo most conductive to the in terest of all sections of the Union. The connection should be made at three points, viz: across the isthmus, between Misouri and San Francisco, and a branch from this latter line tapping the Pacific at Pugct's Sound. Thus we should have two great centralizing ports on the Pacific coatts, and one opening into the South Sea, and commanding the trade of the Southern States and the western coast of South America. The route across the isthmus will soon be comple ted. But the central trunk has scarce begun. x But bear what an intelligent statesman says respectiag this main trunk: The route is central to the Union, and embracing the business centers of the Atlantic and Pacific, and the Mis sissippi Valley States; on a straight line with San Francisco and Su Louis, and connecting at this latter point with the concentrated steamboat navigation ol tho Great West, and with the entire railroad system from the Mississippi to the Atlantic; straight and smooth; not a mountain to be climbed, a river or swamp to be crossed, a hill to be tunnel ed; wood; water, and soil for continuous settlement; coal known to be on many points of the line; the whole tratersable in winter and' all south of 39, 38, and 37degroes. Such is the character of the central route, and which now claims share of the public attention, and of the congress appropriation. I shall ask r it that justice, and that it may be ex- amined by some practical man whom can commend, and who will have a stomach to the work, and do it without talk or delay. Regarding it as certain tho road Is to be made, 1 now add somo ohservsationa upon its character and construction, elieving that erroneous ideas prevail pon these points, which the public ood requires to be corrected. 1 am onposed to all schemes of making a job oftbe work, against mixing public and private interests, against furnishing the means of making the road to jobbers, and then letting them own it, and charge the people double upon condition of arryin; for the Federal Government free. I hold that it should be made by the United States, to far at their ter ritory extends, (which would be almost the whole distance on the central route,) leaving the two ends, where it would go through States, to the operation of State laws and state authority, inis would bo from the Missouri State line, at the mouth of the Kansas, to a point at California State line opposite the end of the Sierra Navada, at Walker's Pass, a distance of twelve and a halfde greos of longitude, equal to about twelve hundred miles, (fifty-six miles to a de gree in that lattitude.) with a southern deflection, as it went west, of three and a half degrees. This would be the main body oftbe work, leaving the two ends to roads to ba made under State authority, and which are already pro iccted, and in some degree commenced both in California and Missouri, in. the mean time, and es a permanent elp and rescourse at each end of the road, there is now steamboat transport tntion of seven Hundred miles at each d from San Francisco hall the way up the San Joaquin, or more; from St. Louis to tho mouth of ho Kansas, .and un it (as soon as the new tentory la. ...... . . i . , :i established) several nunureu umo further. Stages, also, all the usual land onveyances, would be at each end of the national territorial roau, Mu l.lea is. the road should be bjiilt bv the United States by the erealion of ' .1 ll stock, hypothecated upon me puoue. lands, payable at a fixed period at tna. Federal treasury; and Wat an aaequaie force should be pnt upon U to do . tb, work at once.
