BY "two sisters of the west."
I shall not see again a brow
So pure and proud as thine ;
It seem'd an altar formM of snow}
For thoughts and dreams divine?
I shall not meet again an eye
So eloquent and bright;
The stars that gem the evening sky
Alone recall its light,
J ne'er again α voice may hear
Qf such a witching tone,
Or bask beneath a smile so dear,
As thine, my lost, mine own!
My beautiful, my cherished flower,
Thy footstep's lightest fall
Stirr'd in my heart a magic power,
And made earlh musical.
I know not why I yet live on,
Since thou art flrd afar;
The glory of my life halli gone
With thee, my morning star;
But thou, my bird, hast spread thy plumes.
In hotter brighter spheres;
Far from the dreary shade of tombs,
The bitterness of tears.

we think it answers. Suppose Saratoga to be a
ilass vessel. Mr. Q,. (quicksilver) g'»cs there

(seq-watcr) follows and lies comfortably a-top of
Mr. Q. Then tumbles in Mr. E. (ether) ; Mr
Χ. Γ. \V. (nice pure \yater) ; Mr. Ο. O. (olive
r>ii) : Mr. N.X. (ôjsjy miptlci) ; ;ιπΊ Mr. S. Λ.
(strong alchohol). After the first confusion ot
comiii^ together is well over, this charming soci
ety finds itself very clearly arranged—Mr. IV.
;it tho top, p,r»d Ml. ft. at the bottom, and the
i»lh« r genilurju'u fallen, by some inexplicable law
or other, into very well defined relative positions
—apparent to the (jpinmonest observation. Hut
Mr. O. <). begins to be ipteasy. Me ijon-t see

undertakes to change places with ope or both

then to {he airfare. And though every body
think? lh.it, «jomi'hiiu' or οΐΙ,οι., ·ί is all wrong,
and Jher.e is great about mixed society and
parvenus and pretenders, the very struggle to put
down the ambitious gentleman seems only to
raise him higher. And the confusions lasts—till ;
the parties become tired of debating the· matter,
and the upstart is let alone. Upon which désira- j.
hie consummation, dow n sinks Mr. O. O. to his j
old place again, and ail the [est resume their
placet', according to their original §trqlifieatiori. 11
No—no ! Life is too short for supecfuicry !— |
True philosophy is to live as much as you |
can, leaving the gods to determine how /<">£, 1
and hp who crowds into hi* day t!;e most events,
the most variety, the. most contact with hi·» spe
cies, learns, thinks, feels and lives the most—be
his conversance with rich or poor, with high or '

sea, into which we piuuge ou fed f, after our day's
work is done, to swim till bed time. Let what J
will float up to us. We cannot but knqw the !
thing that touches us and that knowledge'repays
us for the contract; and we rise or sink, in ref» r- |
ence to thi> neighbor ijjloat with us in life, accord- 1
ing to our specific gravity, (or if you like the j
word better, specific levity!) If God designed !
us to hold our head higher than another above!
w^ler, weswun in a truth-telling element, and the ι
world has found it out. We will take the world's
word for it—meantime, however, buffeting away
