The stormy Marsh has come at last, With wind and cloud, and changing skies; l hear the rushing of the blast, • That through the snowy valley flies. Ah, passing few are they who speak. Wild stormy month! in praise of thee; Yet, though thy winds are loud and bleak, Thou art a welcome month to me. For thou, to northern lands again The glad and glorious sun dost bring, And thou hast joined the gentle train, And wear’st the gentle name of Spring. And in thy reign of blast and storm, * Smiles many a long, bright, sunny day, When the changed winds are soft and warm, And heaven puts on the blue of May. Then sing aloud the gushing rills, And the full springs from frost set free. That, brightly leaping down the hills, Are just set out to meet the sea. The year’s departing beautv hides Of wintry storms the sullen threat; But in thy sternest frown abides, A look of kindly promise yet. Thou bring’st the hope of those calm skies. And that soft time of sunny showers. When the wide bloom, on earth that lies. Seems of a brighter world than ours. A XEW^KDKR. We observed in the city of Philadelphia, a few days ago, that a new order had been or ganized in that city, which promises to be very numerous. Already there may be seen large delegations of its members at various points in the streets. Their particular business seems to be to look at ladies endeavoring to cross the muddy streets without getting their dresses soiled; and in order to carry out tully the object of organization the members of this new order—composed chiefly ot young men and idlers—are posted at the several crossings in Chestnut street, where the mud is thick est. These chaps volunteer to be on duty as long as there are any females in the streets,' and from the close manlier in which they re main at their posts, we should infer that they were good members. Iheir duty, however, is not a hard one; it is simply to see that a ladv has her dress raised sufficiently to keep it out of the mud, when crossing the street. The moral effect produced by the performance of this duty by the young men is considered a sufficient equivalent for their trouble. W e believe the name of the order is the Philadel phia Knights of the Ciarter.—Del. Jour. The Paris Patrieofa late date has the fol lowing*. “At the last Tuileries ball, the brilliant toilette of a stranger, with an incredible num ber of diamonds, attracted the attention ot all present. In a moment the attention was changed to the most intense curiosity, when Louis Napoleon was observed to accost the ladv, and remain some moments in conversa tion. Enigma was soon solved. The lady was the widow of Mr. Aaron Burr, formerly Vice President of the United States, with whom Louis Napoleon was on terms of intimacy _L. !Ll - * 1 . i m ti I 1 • ! ♦ till* 411lI I III 111 — Wllliai III Ulul UVUUU J | am* i-»v V..v. --- teen years lie had recognized the widow ol his old American friend.” “This probably alludes to Madame dum.d, the wealthy second wile ol Col. Jiurr, who obtained a divorce from him a few years previous to his decease. She awns a largo landed estate on the Island of Malta.” ID* LYON’S KATHAIRON, for preserving, restoring, anil beautifying the Uair} is the most de lightful and wonderful article the world ever pro duced. Its astonishing success is without a pre cedent in the history of the Materia Medica.— Dark and luxuriant curls, soft and glossy hair, with scores of admirers, (mark this, ladies.) is the universal effect ol the Kathairon. Bald and Grey Heads were perfectly astonished.— “The Kathairon has fully restored my hair after a baldness of 12 years. A. J. Courtnghi. Bond street.
