P 0 E T R Y A FANCY. It was a child a little child lie died opon the deep ; The wave wore raging tern and wild; They rook him into sleep! Hii Cither (oiled upon the deck, And strove and strove in vain J A thousand voices cried "a wreck!" And never cried again. Ttio waters maddening in their ire, A Bedlam of the waves, Swept down that stout and hardy sire, To sleep in coral caves. The boats are near the crew begin To leave the crowded bow. Gone gone the waters suck them in ! riey have the victory now. The ni(ht is dark, the hulk drives on Over the lonely sea; And now, methoughl a red flash ihone And smote it on the lee. The torch-light ot the tempest came On wings of ruin fast, The sea, like hills of rolling flame, Blusli'd bloody as it pait. The hulk is stuggling still and where, Where is the little chile ? He sleeps upon the cabin chair, Mis dreams are soft and mild. In dreams arc closed the angel eyes, The rosy lips apart, While thoughts of home and sunny skies Melt the poor infant's heart. And o'er his fare such feelings pass As move, but may not wake : Like si) idhvs ovof waving grass, Or bree7.es on 4 lake. Once did he stir his drooping hard, As if he sought another, And, murmuring of some distant land. Ho smiled, and lisped my mother! The tempest ceased 'twas brief and still The oi l hulk swam the sea, And idly drifted on, until It wnt down silently ! It dropt upon a coral bank, Its last stout riven , Dream-like the vanished vessel sank The infant woke in Heaven. Our lVfH.-ce Girls. BVO. W. HOLMES.

The gay grizette, whose fingers touch Love's thousand chords so well ; The dark Italian, loving much, But more than one can tell, And England's fuir-haired, blue-eyed dame, Win hinds her brow with pearls ; Ye who have scenthem.can Ihey shame Our own sweet Yankee girls ?

Interesting Typograpliieal History The following we copy from the last number of that excellent paper the Doyleslown Dew. The Doylcslown JJemocrut was origi nally established by Lewis Deflenbach, in the year 1815. It was printed in the frame building over the store of Itenj. Mor ris, jr., adjoining the hotel ofJ- Wilson Cowell. lie did not succeed well, how ever, and made an assignment to Thos. Witts, and IJenj. Morris, jr. They sold it to 15enj. Miillin, late of the Pcnmytvu nittn. In the year 1818, another Demo cratic paper was established here by Sim eon Siegfried, who afterwards published a paper at Newtown ; and who is now liv ing in Waynesburg, Greene county, Pa., editing a paper called the Village I Hitch man, and preaching occasionally between whiles. The Democratic party at that time was divided the Doylestown Dem ocrat being the organ of the Ileistcr Dem ocrats, and the Messenger the organ of the Findlay Democrats. After the Guberna torial election of 1810, the Bucks County Messenger was purchased by Hon. Simon Cameron late U. S. Senator from this State. About the year 1820 the two estab lishments were united in one paper bearing the title of the "Doylestown Democrat." and published by the firm of Cameron fc Mifllin. At the close of the year it was purchased by (Jen. Wi'liam T. Kogers, 1-ite Slate Senator from this county, and at present a resident of this boro'. lie con tinued to publish it until the first of July, 1828- It was during his administration of it, that the memorable election of Andrew Jackson ti the Presidency occurred.

A College Lniii. The Mowing capital story is told by "one who knows," of Doctor Marey, anil cannot fail to amuse our readers. On one occasion, several of the gtut'ents of South Carolina College resolved to drag the doc- j tor'rt carriage into the woods, and fixed up on a night for the performance of the ex ploit. One of their number, however, was troubled with some compunctious visitings, and managed to convey to the worthy President a hint that it would be well for ; him to secure the door of his carriage house. Instead of paying any heed to this sujfgeston, the doctor proceeded on the ap pointed night to the carriage house, and ensconced his portly person inside the VC' hide. In less than an hour some half a dozen young gentlemen came to his re treat, and cautiously withdrew the carriagi into the road. When they were fairly out of the College precincts they forgot their reserve and began to joke freely with each other by name. One of them complained of the weightof the carriage, and another replied by say ing that it was heavy enough to have the old fellow himself in it. For nearly a mile they proceeded along the highway, and then struck into the woods, to a cover which they concluded would effectually conceal the vehicle. Making themselves infinitely merry at the Doctor's expense, and conjecturing how and when he would find his carriage, they at length reached the spot where they had resolved to leave it. Just as they were about to depart having once more agreed that "the carriage was heavy enough to have the old Doctor and all his tribe in it" they were startled by the sudden dropping of one of the glass door panels, and the well known voice of the Doctor himself thus addressed them "So, so, young gentlemen, you are going to leave me in the woods, are you ? Sure ly, as you have brought me hither for your own gratification, you will not refuse to take me back for mine. Come, Messrs , and , and , buckle to, and let us return ; it's getting late !" There was no appeal; for the window was raised, and the doctor resumed his seat. Almost without a word, the discom fitted young gentlemen took their places at the pole at the back of the vehicle, and quite as expeditiously, if with less noise, did they retrace their course. In silence they dragged the carriage into its wonted place, and then retreated precipitately to their rooms, to dream of the account they must render on the morrow. When they had gone, the Doctor quietly vacated the carriage, and went to the house, where he related the story to his family with much glee. He never called the heroes of that nocturnal expedition to an account, nor was his carriage ever afterwards dragged at night into the woods. Spirit of the Times. Parson ISrownlotv. Tarson Emwnlow, the eccentric Methodist Treacher and independent editor, has left Jones borough, Tennessee, and located his newspaper at Knoxville. In a recent number, hchas a "Re view of the Knoxville Market," (or the current week. Here are a few items.

Inftuenet of a Wife, What is it that man seeks in the companionship of a woman I An influence like the gentle dew, and the cheering libt, more felt throughout the whole of his existence in its softening, healing, harmonising power, than acknowledged by ar.y single act, or recognized by any certain rule. It is in fact a being to come home to, in the hap piest sense of the expression. Poetic lays of ancient tim were wont to tell how the old warrior, returning from his bold fight, would doff his plumed helmet, and repoe ing from his toils, lay bare his weary limbs, that woman's hand might pour the heal balm. But never wearied knight nor warrior Covered with the dust of the battle field, was more In need of wotiian'i southing power thr. are thrii care-worn sons of toil, who struggle for the bread of life in our more peaceful and delightful days. And still, thouKh the romance of the bat tie, the helmet, the waving plume, ind the " Clarion wild and high," may all have vanished from the scene, tho charm of woman's influence lives as brightly in li e pic ture ot domestic joy, as when she placed th wreath of victory on the hero's brow. May, more, so; for there are deeper sensibilities at work, thoughts more profound in our great tho. tre of intellectual and moral strite, than whero the contest was for heroic lame, and lorce of glory or of wealth. Among the changes which have taken place in the condition of mankind, it is then not the lent of woman's privileges that her influence remains the same, except only as it is deepened and per fected, as her own character approaches tow aid perfection. It is not the least of her privileges, that she can still be all to man which his necessi ties require ; that he can retire fmra the tumult of the world, and seek her society with a r.tst which nothing can impair, so long as alio receives him with a truo and faithful heart true to the best and kindest impuse of which her nature is capable ; and sacred to the faithful trust commit ted to her care. And that it is eo, how many a home can wit ness, how many a fireside welcome how mar.y a happy meeting after painful absence prolonged: Yes, there are scenes within the sacred precincts of the household heart, which, not the less, be cause no stranger's eye beholds them repay, and richly, too, dark days of weary conflict arid lor.g nights of anxious rare. Rut who sliMI puitit them ? Are they not graven on the hesr's of wives .' and those who behold the picture them, in all its beauty, vividness and truth, can scarce ly wish to draw aside the veil which screens it from the world. Jm Thin J A slory is told of a very good and pious m-n whom the Church of Rome has enrolled among her saints on account of his great holiness. He was living at once of the Italian Universitii , when a young man whom ht h id known as a hoy, ran up to him with a face full of deliiiht, nnd told him that what he had long been wishing a bove all things in the world was at enj?!h ful filled. His parents having just given him leave to study Law, thereupon he had come to the law school al this University on account of its grent fame, and meant to spare no pains or labrr in getting through his studies as quickly as possible. In this way he ran on a long time ; and when rt last he came to a stop, the holy man, who had been listening to him with great patience an I kindness, said Well, and when you pet through your course of studies, what do you mean to do then ?" " Then I Bhall take my Doctor's degree," an swered the young man. "And then?" inquired Thillippo Ncri. " And then," continued the ynyih, "I shall have a number of difficult and knotty ruses to manage, shall catch people's applause hy my elo- qncnee, my zeal, my acutcness, and gain tepula tion." " And then ?" again asked the holy man. " And then why then there cannot he a ques. tion but what I shall be promoted to some high office or other ; besides, 1 shall make money and grow rich." " And then?" repeated Philippo. ' And then," said the student, "and then I hall die." " And then ?" asked philippo, mildly. " Whereupon the young man made no anpwer, hut cast down his head anil went away. This last 'And ThenV had pierced like a flash of light ning into his sou'. ap(j he could not get quit nf if. Soon after he forsook th srndy of the law, giv himself up to the ministry of Christ, and spent the remainder of his days in good words and wi r'is. The question -vhich Thilippo Neri put to the young lawyer is one which we should put l'r quently to oorsrlvps. When we have done nil that we are doing, all that we dream of doing, evpn supposing that all our dreams were accom plished, that evety wish of our heart is fulfilled, still mav we a.k " What will we do What wilt we be then !" whenever we raster thoughts forward, never lt them stop short on this fide of the grave let them be carried to the grave i. self; hut hen we have followed oursclvts thith er, and have seen ourselves laid therein, still ask ourselves the searching qiirstirc ant. tha:.
