lien hope u.is ...
'i'hat spring beside tlio summer s .>?.
I do not sigh for festive bulls :
1 eovet not the gay saloon ;
JN'or would I list to pleasure's calls.
My spirit craves u higher boon.
But, U ! I sigh for vanished years.
When spicy gales embalmed the day,
And dewy eve distilled its tears
Of joy, along my spirit's way.
I (Jo not sigh ("or classic shores,
Where music flows in cv'ry stream,
Nor do llong for India's stores,
To soothe my troubled spirit's dream.
But, O! 1 sigh lor the sunny land,
Where once I strayed in joyous glee;
Where friendship smiled on either hand,
And cr'rg sound was melody.
An exile from my native bow'rs.
Where friendship smiles,but not for me,
I've naught to cheer my lonely hours,
But my own plaintive minstrelsy.
But Faith reveals a smiling land,
Illum'd with*brightand peerless beams,
A land of rest at God's i iglit hand ;
This, //lis, shall cheer my spirit's
dream's. [Staffojik.

a hi; jDKAvi-; ivian.? i novo js naming
which a truly brave ami persevering <
man cannot accomplish. Heat and j
cold, mountains and seas, and sunshines, <
are alike to him, when lie is bent upon
his object. He pushes ahead?never
thinks of fainting?until his proud de- ,
sign is achieved. Whether it be riches ,
or honors, he permits no obstacle to impede
his progress. The histories of all |
distinguished men, from Alexander to '
Napoleon, shows that it was energy and '
perseverance that made them distinguished
above their fellow men. And j
you, young man, if determined in your j
course, whatever end you have in viewj (
shall be respected and honored. Never ,
permit your energies to slumber, but lie
ever active in whatever field you choose
to labor. To lag?to stop to doubt?to '
hang your head in fear, will prove disas- !
trcus to your best interest. '
" To move along in doubt and fear,
And tremble at the shades of even?
What is it, but a tomb to rear, \
And stealing to it, turn from Heaven." (
The reason why so many turn out |
miserable tools?without ambition, life, ,
or even wealth?is their lack of courage J
and their fear of the world. What has an
honest man, or a man of virtue and in- '
tegrity, lo fear? All are but shadows (
that look dark and forbidding before '
you?and these vanish before the light !
of truth and generous ambition. Let 1
nothing stay your progress when you <
know you aTe in the right path?noth- <
ing but the strong arm of death?then
you will accomplish your bright expectations,
while
" Shadows fly,
And hope beam lu-autious from afar?
A sea of glory fill the eky,
And wisdom beam in every Star." <
Mi*. Kendall 'of thn Picayune, ,
writing from Matamoras, relates i
the following:?
A Mexican captain of artillery,
a prisoner in the eamp, tells a t
good story of Canales and his,'1
great haste to get upon the Mexi-j
can side of the Rio Grande afteij 1
the last great battle. He hacR 1
reached the stream, had thrown '
himself into a boat, and was about '
pushing oft; when a burly paddle,
one Fathe.r Leary as he was call- j
ed, came rushing up to the bank i
i i i ?:i.. j'? ? _
etuu project lusmy jur a passage
over. The boatman hesitated
about pushing off, while the padre
was making J'or the craft, up to his j
knees in mud, "Shove her off!"
shouted the frightened Cariales, as
some of the American mounted
men appeared, in sight; "One t
moment, for the love of God !"
ejaculated the priest, with out- <
stretched arm. " Let go that rope,
there!" again shouted Canales. I
"I shall sink," responded the priest,
in doleful a?npTits. and still flnnn. 1
deririg onwards towards the canoe. <
"He will drown, General," said 1
one of the oarsmen, struck aghast
at the idea of seeing a holy man -
" Le.t;,, him drown,

Prison.?An exhas
taken place
xvy. It appears that
.c term of Franklin counUourt,
in 1845, the justices removed
the jailor and appointed
another. The displaced man,
with the aid ot'friends, took appeal
from this action of the county
court, up to the Court of Appeals,
which after a hearing issued its
mandate, directing his restoration.
This the county court refused to
do, and the Justices, five in number
were cited to appear before
the Court of Appeals, to show
I ,1 i*i - -
cause wny tney aici not enter ana
carry into effect the mandate sent
(o tliem, and the refusing to appear,
they were thrown into prison.
What will be the finale of the
matter, we cannot say. The Legislature
has interferred in the
matter, and will settle it of course.
A "Tali" Corporal.?A Colo-,
nel in the army writing to the
editor of the Albany Journal, has
the following paragraph, in an
account of the battle of the 9th of
M ay:?
" I assure you this battle of the
JJtli will never be forgotten by any
participant?a most'closely fought
!i nd bloody battle. I saw a corporal,
who was by my side, kill three
men, who appeared in the same
opening in the thicket, in quick
succession ; tliey literally fell dead
one upon the other. He then
wounded some others, rushed out
find made prisoners of them, handed
them over s.nd then went to
work firing again. . iie man exponded
twenty-sev ^n catridges,
and I doubt whether he evey'missed
his aim."
Tiie Rocking Chair.?A writer
in the Boston Transcript condemns
the general use of the Rocking
Chair in that city. He attributes
lack of graceful motion, and particularly
a graceful walk in ladies
to that cause. Nearly half a
young lady's indoor life is spent,
the body half suspended by the
elbows, and the muscles of the
Kmolr pntirnlr vorl in tV?o rnr>1/,_
ing chair. The necessary consequence
is, a crooked spine, a weak
back, a high pair of shoulders, and
pin awkward manner of carrying
the head?effects perfectly incompatible
with graceful movements
of any kind. The majority of
laboring men carry the head and
?houlders less ungracefully than
the majority of ladies merely bpcause
exercise with them strengthens
the back, and the forming
rocking chair has never humped
their shoulders, and pitched forward
their heads.

received by the last steamer from
England, says. "The Duke Devonshire
entertained a select par^
ly to luncheon at his residence, at
Chiswick, on Saturday. They,
were engaged on this occasion,
and met with their usual success;
the amusing extravaganza, the
llail-road Overture, being repeat-,

False friendship, like ivy, decays
and ruins the wall it embraces
; but true friendship gives new
life and animation to the object it
supports.
A Good One.?" My dear what

Mr. Smith to Mrs. Smith: the

" Why huz, I've settled on Peter."

"Peter! Good Lord! I never

" Well, then* we'll call him
