THE HEART'S GUESTS.
When age has cast its shadows O'er life's declining way, When evening twilight gathers Round our retiring day, an ?u_it 1 JL lieu OilUll \VU fill til lit puiiuui On the dim and shadowy past, In the heart's silent chamber The guests will gather fast; Guests that in youth we cherished Shall come to us once more, And we shall hold communion As in the days before. They may be dark and sombre, They may be bright and fair, But the heart will have its chamber And the guests will gather there. IIow shall it be, my sisters, Who shall hn our hnart's ornnsts? How shall it be my brothers, When life's shadow on us rests? Shall we not mid the silence Hear voices sweet and low, Speak the old familiar language, The words of long ago ? Shall we not see dear faces Sweet smiling as of old ; Till the mists of that lone chamber Are sunset clouds of old'? When age has cast its shadows O'er life's declining way, And evening twilight gathers Round our retiring. From the Southern Patriot. We do not wonder that the memorable battle of Palo Alto, .and Resaca de la Palma, have excited the utmost attention, and a hisrh degree of admiration, abroad. We anticipated most of the encomiums which have been bestowed on our troops for their daring and heroic actions on the eight and ninth of May, We felt confident that a nation like England, one of the distinguishing characteristics of whose people is bravery, would appreciate and admire the ieats of prowess performed by our gallant men. We felt confident too that - i - _i _/? n m 1 tne aesp&icnes 01 \jren. xayior, would commend themselves to the favor of all. The singularly modest tone in which they were written, this good sense and excellent judgement which characterized and distinguished them, all have received at the hands of the English, a degree of appreciation honorable to them, and flattering to us. Some of our exchange papers have been informed by passengers who came over in the Britannia, tnat tne details 01 ootn oatties were read in Englad, with a degree of interest approaching to enthusiasm ; and in confirmation of what we have written above we append the following article from the London Morning chronicle. " Nil admirari.?Such is the motto of Great Britain in respect to the great deeds of Americ i. She views them coldly, quietly, and without either wonder or emotion. She is as little surprised at their occurrence as the mathe-; matician is astounded at the accuracy of his own calculations. She sees her way both to them and through them, and would have been more surprised had they turned otherwise than they have done. " The feats on the 1? io Grande have been gallant and successful. TVT? 17 1 J J Li. u man in uugiauu UUUULS u. No man in England suggests even a second interpretation of them, nor cares about refining upon their natural significations. We admit, without reservation, that, they exhibit some important facts, and that to some extent, viz : the trojiscendant merits of the Ame_! ^ 1 a. I'll r ncan army, me strategic skiii oi the officers, the impetuous energy of the soldiers, the considerate forbearance of the sutlers. For any exception that we take to his . conduct, General Taylor may deserve a triumph, and Captain Ringgold the honors of an ovation. They have fought well, and kept up a character which was before high enough to be independent of either bravado or exa ggeration. More than that, they have just done what we expected, and what we foretold they would do. Who so dear to us as the man who fulfils our prophecies 1 The Mexicans themselves are not dishonored. Let those who think lightly of American courage attribute the sucesses in question to the weakness of their enemy, .U aL _ ______ /-.I ranter mail to tae vaior 01 tneir conquerors. We reject the alternative. America won the fight through her own inherent heroism. The cause was gained by the strength of the one rather than by the weakness of the other. " Such is the fact?a fact probably admitted through the whole lengiit and breadth of Great Britain ; by the Gael and Welshman, as well as the consanguineous Anglo-Saxon." St. Juan D'Ulloa.?In reference to the statement published yesterday, the N. Y. Journal of Commerce remarks as follows :? " In our opinion, it would ?e all but a meracle if the American licet now in the Gulf, even if th^y were all concentrated, (which they cannot be without int'-rmitting the blockade of the other ports,) should capture the fortress ol D'Ulloa, strengthened as it now is at every point. 1 ne wnoie squadron does not mount as many guns as the fortress; and would have to present wooden walls against walls of stone. No; if Ulloa is to be bombarded, (and we don't see why it should be at present,) let at least three ships of the line, ot the heaviest metal, join the squadron before the attempt is made. Otherwise we shall expect a failure. Our tara naturally think they can do as much as the French, with an equal number of guns : and so they can, and more besides. But four times < 1 i. i* 1 it ine numoer 01 guns empioyea ny ilie French in 1838, would not capture the fortess now, as easily as it was then captured, if at all. A Washington letter in the New York journai of Commerce, speaking of the Indians at present in Washington says ::? On Wednesday they visited for the first time, the Capitol, remained for a short time in the Galleries of the Senate and House of Representatives, beheld with wonder the paintings and statuary, and more than everything besides were delighted with the colored prints in the Library from Mr. Catlin's portraits and scenes of Indian Life, As they gazed upon the ttuualo hunts, upon the groups of wild horses and wolves, and upon the various Indian warriors in their own costumes, and aimed the scenes of their own distant homes, they could not restrain their emotions, and for the first time men, women, and even the youths present, fell into an animated conver sation, ^pointing out to each other what most interested them in the different, groups,) and for the moment seemed restored to the wild prairies or hills of Texas. They ^were much pleased, not only with the large paintings in the otunda, but also with the portraits of General Jackson, the President, and other distinguished persons by Mr. Healy. Among them is an admirable picture of General Houston himself, at which they laugh< d heartily. American Newspapers at Matamoras.?A weekly paper has been commenced at Matamoras b> H. ivici^eoa, entitled " uepuoiic ol the Rio Grande and Frend of the People." The leading articles are printed both in English and Spanish. The purpose is to convince the people of Tamaulipas. Coahulia, New Leon and Chihuahua, of the futility of resisting American arms and to throw upon ihe Administration of Paredes the responsibility of the war. A separation of the Departments nam d above from the Central Government of Mexico, is the distinct aim of this new paper. A prospectus for another new paper has been issued at Matarnoras by Messrs. Bangs <? Lewis, II I - I fl * ? ? uaiieu me ** kio grande Herald." The Bibi<e in Italy,?Italy is becoming more and more accessible to evangelical efforts. The Bibe can now be circulated, and the Grand Duke of Tuscany has re cently consented to the publication of the Scriptures in his domain. I positively never knew a man ill the country too poor to take a newspaper ; yet many respectable persons read no papers but that they borrow ; as 1 speak generally, 1 hope to ollend no one. If I do, the greater the necessity to speak on. livery man is able conveniently to take a paper. How many who think themselves too poor to take a paper, pay as much daily for trifles. To CLEANSE THE TbETII AND IMPROVE THIS UitEATii.?To four ounces of fresh prepared water, add one drachm of Peruvian Bark, and wash the teeth with this water morning and evening, before hrfiakf'ast und air. a i* vimnop li will effectually destroy the tartar on the teeth and remove the offensive smell arising from those that are decayed.
