Suggested by Ihe sudden death of two lovely children Addressed lo the parents. WRITTEN Ml R Till 01.IVK HRANCH. They grew in childish beauty fait, Bright buds of hope were they : The stars thai lit thy household eve, Thy sunshine through ihe day. A dark-winged angel swiftly came, With icy hiind and breath, He chilled the half-unfold binN ; That angel's name 'vas llealh ! In liTe, through evury joy and grief, The two weio side by side ; Thi" golden link that bound them thus, Slern Death could not divide ! Together, maible-like and cold, Ye sadly laid them down, The ringlets clustering yet, so Mill, The flaxen and the brown. Then slowly hearing thrm nway, Ye laid them in the tomb, And turned to that deserted home, In agony and gloom ; Their places vacant inund ynnr board, Their empty ennch to see, To hear them lisp their prayer no more, Beside their motliei's knee. The little garment once they wore The playthings that remain, A few bright links of curling hair, Are all ye can retain ! Yet while thy toais in anguish flow, Fivr hones so sadly riven, Mourn not thou hast no child on earth, While two are thine in Heaven ! For tim ro fearful ravage make With youth and beauty there; And they've etraped the pain and toil, Karth'it sorrowing children bear. Then let this arm, this hope, be thine, That whpn life's cord is riven, Thine angel. children hand in hand, Shall welcome thee to Heaven ! The Djiiis;. Oh. mother, make my bed for me, I'll ask it not again ; Why are thy eyes so dim with tears .' I would not give thee pain. Father, dear father, ero I die. Draw near my couch of death, And eal thy blessing, ere 1 yield My last expiring breath. Sitter stretch out thy trcmgling hand, 1 feel I'm dving now ; Wipe oil those tear-drops from the eyes, And smooth my humming brow Brother, breathe nut thy last fniewell, And give thy parting kiss, F.re my freed spirit takes ils flight. To you bright world of bliss. Friends of my gay and joyous hours, I've loved you deep and long, Breathe out for me one parting prayer, And sing one parting song. Farewell ! but when I'm laid ttmv-t j Breathe not for me a sigh ; Death comes ! it was a gi iel to live, An endle-s bliss to die. ohkmnalT" Random Shots No- 3- BV NONDBSCKII'T. Smoking and Charing. It is said by ninny people whose heads are on their shoulders, that a man may as well be oul of the world, as out of the fash, ion and nothing is too rcdieulous in the matter of dress or manners for them to a lopt. Most men smoke and chew and wear coats and pants nf a peculiar cut and fashion, because that appears to he the ruling style of chestnut street. They re mind tnc of a Lady who had been on a vis it to Philadelphia, and was very much ela ted in consequence. After her return home the conversation in a company of which she made one, happened to turn upon no ses; in which the Grecian. Koman and African, came in for a due share of praise and censure. This ornamental member of the l.adv's face, happened to be most de cidpdlv Roman: and ,'P,i being asked her preference she replied with a preat deal of naivete. " I very much prefer Ro. jnan nones, they are all the fashion in the city." ' It is fashionable iid gmllemanly lo ..iiiokf," say these xtitiirc:, of viilcm. i'lii.vTKif .mi rmrisui BL00MSBU11G, COLUMBIA CO., SATUHDAY, MARCH 3, 1849. iiluiut a single item of benefit to their constitutions and at tho expensn of their income, they pull' and spit, until they them-1 selves as well as the company, are com- j pletely disgusted. How a delicate lady can permit u walking representative of a Tobacco shop to approach the confines of! her ruby lips, surpasses my understanding. Now how is it fashionable ? The most degraded loafer who comes up regularly before the Mayor for sentence, is according to these wise-acres, the most fashionable. Ily the same rule of reasoning he is also a gentleman ; and yet few of our young llucks would like to walk down street with their fashionable and gentlemanly brethern Hut it may be answered, it takes something more than Plunking and chewing to make a gentleman. Let me ask then, cannot a man be a most perfect gentleman, and neither smoke, chew nor snufP Do cither of these pract ices make a man cither dignified or grace ful? Some physicians have given in their opin ion in favor of the medical qualities of to. bacco. Not having the honor of belonging to this very useful and meritorious profession, I tihall not take upon me the task of deny, ing this position, but shall merely say, that so far as my reading extends, the majority of authorities lean to the other side of the question. Tobacco, according to the fol lowers of this pernicious practice, is a sover eign panacea forall the "ills that flesh is heir to;" curing the water-brash, tooth-ache, heart-burn, stimulating and strengthening the system, making lean people fat, and fat ones lean. It is the human system, like a whig United Slates Hank, in the political system; the balance wheal, regulator and preserver of all things. Smoking, chewing, snuffing and drinking are nothing in the world but nasty, disgus ting practices. "I have smoked says one ever since I was ten years old ;'? and "says another," never smoked till I was thirty. 1'he hoy smoked because his companions did ; and the man, for the same most ex cellent reason. Upon meeting after his first collegiate year, an old schoohmate of mine-; a segar which he was leisurely puffing, first attracted my attention. "Why P, said I, you surely do not smoke." " Yes said ho I learned to smoke at College. You would soon learn to smoke, drink and swear in college, Phis did not lend lo exalt my idea of college rules and regulations, but it did serve to prove, that people smoke for fash ion sake, and that mankind are very much like a flock of sheep. "I knew by the smoke that so gracefully curled From a blazing segar that a lanfer was near." Is it not really singular that young men, otherwise well-bred and genteel, can so far forget themselves as to turn their mouth in- j , ,'i , c , , , to the crater ol a immature volcano? Iii-I ! temperance in ron2 drink is not a greater ; curse than the practice of smoking and ' chewing, Although not so rappid,' the fa-1 tal consequences are just as certain.
