ORIGIN OF MAN. We take from our scrap book the following exquisite and beautiful stanzas, said to be from pen of the celebrated orator and statosman, Sher idan. Though no novelty, they will not fail to interest whoever gives them a perusal. . Affliction one dav as she harked to the roar Of the stormy and struggling billow, Drew a beautiful form on the sands of the shore, With the stem of a weepinff willow. Jupiter struck with the noble plan, As he roamed ou the verse ot the ocean, Breathed on the figure, and calling it man, Endowed it with lite and motion. A creature so glorious in mind and in frame nostamp'd with each parent impression Among them a point of contention became, Etich clnimins a rirht of possession. "He is mine," said Affliction, "I gave him his birth, I alono am the cause oi creation." The materials were furnished by me," answered Earth, " T gave him," said Jove, " animation." The gods all assomblcd in solemn divan, After henrine each claimant's petition, Pronounced a definite sentence on man, And thus settled his lute's disposition: "Let Affliction possess her own child, till the woes Ut lite cease to harass and goad it, After death give his body to Earth whence itrose, And his spirit to mm who bestowed it." WHEN COLDNESS WRAPS THIS SUFFER ING CLAY. from byron's Hebrew melodies. When coldness wraps this suffering clay. Ah, whither strays the immortal mind? It cannot die, it cannot stay, But leaves its darkened dust behind. Then, unembodied, doth it trace By steps each planet's heavenly way? Or fill at onco tho realms of space, A thing of eyes that all survey ? Eternal, boundless, undecayed, A thought unseen, but seeing all, All, all in earth, or pkies displny'd, Shall it survey, shall it recall : Each fainter trace that memory holds So darkly of departed years. In one broad glance the soul beholds, And all, that was, at once appears. Before creation peopled earth, Its eye shnll roll through chaos back. And where tho furthest heaven had birth, The spirit trace its rising track. And where the future mars or makes, Its glance dilate o'er all to be, While sun is quenched or system breaks, Fix'd in its own eternity. Above, or Love, Hope, Hate or Fear, It lives all passionless and pure : An age shall fleet like earthly year; Its years as moments shall endure. Away, away, without a wing. O'er all, through all, its thoughts shall fly; A nameless and eternal thing. Forgetting what it was to die. A HEROINE. THE WIFH OF LAFAYETTE. The faithful and devoted wife of General Lafayette was daughter of the illustrious house of JNoailles. one was married at the early age of seventeen, and scarcely had the honeymoon glided happily away, when her youthful husband left her side to fight for American independence. During his ab sence, Madame Lafayette ruled her house hold and numerous estate with wisdom mid prudence faribeyond her years. At length her husband whom she loved so dearlv, and of whom she was so justly fond, returned, covered with glory, to lay his laurels at her feet. Some few happy davs were spent to gethcr, and then the storm cloud of the French revolution broke over their heads. Her hus band was soon driven into exile, but it was thought that Madame Lafayette, living quiet ly and in retirement on her estate in Auver genc, ran no danger. But her love of liber ty, her high rank, her talents, made her an object of suspicion. She was arrested on the 10th of August, and soon after sent to Paris. Her mother, grand-mother, and sister-in-law, all perished on the same scallold. Madame Lafayetle herself was in daily expectation of death : she made her will, and waited calmly and resolutely for the summons to the guill otine. The revolution of the 9th Thermidor preceded by five days that appointed for her execution. As soon as she was liberated, she sent her only son, then in his childhood, to the care of Gen. Washington, after whom he had been named; and then hastened with her two daughters to find her unfortunate husband then languishing in Rn Austrian prison: She reached Vienna by means of an American passport, obtained an audienco of the Emperor, and solicited either the release of her husband or permission to share his captivity. "As to the release of General La fayette," replied the Emperor, " it is a very complicated piece of business: on that point my hands are tied." Madame Lafayette joyfully embraced the other alternative that of sharing her hus band's gloomy prison, sixteen months' close imprisonment in France, the loss of all her kindred, and her contiual anxiety respecting her husband, had combined to Sheet her health, which declined so rapidly in her damp prison ol Ulmutz, that serious appre hensions were entertained forher life. Fee ling the importance of her life to her family she wrote to the Emperor for his permission io spend a week in Vienna for change of air, and for the purpose of consulting a physi cian. Her letter remained two months un answered, and then came an imperial man date, forbidding her ever to appear in Vien- ua, but offering her ireedom on -condition that she would never seek to return to her husband's prison. Madame de Lafayette's no ble and touching answer to this inhumau pro position, fortunately for posterity, remains on record. It was as follows : "I owecttt-to my family and my friends, to make some eUurt.4'pr the preservation of my life, but they Knew me too well to sup. pose, tor an instant tr.at I would accept it at such a price: . I cannot forget that when we were on the eve of perishing, my husband, by his physical and mental sufferings in Austria, and I by the tyranny of Robespierre in France,! was not allowed to receive any communication from, him, nor to inform him in return that his wife and children were in existence; and I will never, of my own frco will, expose myself to the agony of a seporation from him again. However unsuitable this residenco may bo to my daughter, and however unfa vorable to my health, we will gladly avail ourselves of his Imperial Majesty's gooduess in allowing us to rema.n here, and will never trouble him with any more petitions." 1' rom that lime Aladame do Lafayette made no further efforts, but bore her suffer ings firmly and patiently until the victories of the French Kepublic, changed tho aspect of arlairs. ucneral Latuyctle was restored to freedom, and with his devoted wife returned to his native country, and fixed his residence at La Giango tho maternal inheritance of his wife an estate situated about twelvo leagues from Paris. Here Madame do La fayette spent the remainder of her short lifo in the bosom of her family, and in the prac tice of every Christian virtue. But the poi soned arrow ot griet and anxiety had drank her life blood, and after many lingering months of suffering, this humble christian, this affectionate mother and heroic wife clo sed her pure and exemplary life on the 24th Decomber, 1806. Posterity has covered the name of General Lafayette with glory, but surely the patient endurance, and selt-sacrih cing devotion of his noble wife, deserves an equal meed ot praise. THE RUSSIAN SERFS THEIR CON. DITION THEIR NUMBER. In a work recently published, entitled tho White Slave, a full idea can be gathered of tho serf system, which prevades the Russian empire. Th number of beings embraced within its folds, is not less than forty-three millions of soul3. The Emperor himself, is the proprietor of twenty-one millions or, in other words, he owns more slaves than we have people in the twenty-eight states of our Union. One can thus imagine the collossal personal power of such a monarch. He is undoubtedly the most extensive possessor of serfs of any despot that ever existed Genghis Khan or Tamerlane, would not compare'yith Nicholas. It is JHso said that he is continual ly augmenting this vast number by confisca tions, and by forclosing mortgages on money loaned, or a fine exacted on the estates of his nobility, In this way, if his successors steadily pursue the same policy, they may monopolize nearly all the serfs in that vast empire. Since the days of Peter the Great, the accumulation of serfs on the imperial domaiu.has gone on in an extraordinary ratio, The number has advanced from two or three millions, to twenty-one millions. In this connection it is proper to state, that though the Emperor is nominally a despot over every soul in Russia, both serf and master, embrac ing an aggregate of sixty millions, yet he is restrained by certain laws and usages, from treating all as serfs. His twenty millions are peculiarly the chattels of his will, with all ot whom he can do as his pleasure or caprice may dictate. It has frequently been stated that the ser fage of Russia was different from the slavery of the South, in that the serf could only be transferred with the soil, and that therefore you- could not buy the one without being en cumbered by tho other, which to a certain extent was a clog to tho selling of human be ings; but this is not so. Though the law is, " that no sert could he sold without tho estate to which he belonged," this is evaded by selling land in the desert wasters of Russia, which is not leally worth a penny an acre, and " attaching," as they call it, the serf or serfs to this " newly carved estate," and thus the sale would be legal. It is also said that the Emperor punishes, with the greatest severity, all infractions of the regulations which he was established for the benefit of the serf, but most strangely these punishments do not lead to the en franchisement of the serf. Not in the least. The Emperor puts a ronnd fine on tho of fender, and if he cannot pay, he then con fiscates the estate and brings it within the imperial domain, and thus adds to the num ber of his own serfs. This circumstance shows that the very laws which he is alleged to have made tor their eventual enfranchise ment, but transfers the slaves from the hands of the nobility to those of tho Emperor. This, in our opinion, docs not weaken the serf system ot Russia, though it may mod ify the severity with which he suffers on the estates ot the nobility. . The serfs of Russia arc supposed (though this tradition is disputed) to be the descen dants of Surr, who founded the Syrian em pire of Ninevah. After its overthrow, his descendants spread to the West, into modern Russia and Poland, where they increased and multiplied. But then incursion upon incurs ion came upon them like an avalanche. The Scythian, the Goth, th Hun, the Mogul, and finally the Tartar) swept over that vast region of Eastern Europe, still keeping the original inhabitants, who are probably called Slavi or Slavodiae, (from which the name slave seems clearly derived) in bondage, where they continue at this day, even after a lapse of two thousand years. This is certainly a more remarkable con tinuation of serfdom in one race than has e listed even in Africa. Yet notwithstanding their Ions anes of mental, moral and physical degradation and despair, tho Russian Serf has a capacity which shows that ho is still of tho white lace. I hoiigli stupid, lie can rearm Travellers say that he is remarkably ingenious in manufactures, though too versa tile in character to compete with the more steady industry of the English and Germans. He makes a superior soldier, for his courago and nerve are as undaunted as the iron which he is wielding. His endurance of heat and cold, his blind obedience, his abstemiousness of living, when necessary, show a character encrusted with tho darkness of despotism, but still as worthy and fit to be freemen, as the masters who lord it over him so cruelly. It has been sunnosed that in our day we should live to see the enfranchisement of the serfs of the Russian empire. Wo fear this will not be. Tho dawning eveu is not visible. The Russian Autocrat is too deeply inter ested in its continuance to induce liim to adopt any but palliative mensureS. He will not strike at tho root, by enfranchising the serfs on tho imperial domain. Not only the large, but increasing number on his estates, is calculated to harden and slrengthen the natural passions of avarice and personal pow er. This very increase also binds still tighter the sinews ot Ins monarchy, and thus tosters both the strong passions of personal and poll tical ambition. As able, statesman-like and benevolent as Nicholas is said to be, it would require virtue, almost more than mortal, to induce him voluntarily to divest himself of a power which renders him so terribly great. not only in his own empire, but throughout the world.

The food of man. "The Genessee Farmer gives this brief summary of tho nativo coun tries of our most familiar plants: " I he potatoe is a native of bouth America; and is still found wild in Chili, Pe:u and Monte Video; in its native state, the root is small and bitter. The first mention of it by European writers, is in 1558. It is now spread over tho world. Wheat and rye ori ginated in Tartary and Siberia, where they are still indigenous. The only country where the oat is found wild is in Abyssinia, and thence may be considered a native.- Maize, or Indian corn, is a native of Mexico, and was unknown in Europe, until the dis coveries of Columbus. The bread fruit tree is a native of the South Sea Islands, particularly Otaheite. Tea is found a native nowhere except in China and Japan, from which countries the world is supplied. The cocoa nut is a nativo of most equinoctial countries, and is one of the most valuable trees; as food, clothing and shelter are af forded by it. Coffee is s native of Arabia Felix, but is now spread in both the East and West Indies. The best coffee is brought from Mocha, in Arabia, whence about four teen millions are annually exported. St. Domingo furnishes from sixty to seventy millions of lbs. yearly. All the varieties of the apple are derived from the crab apple, which is found in most parts of the world. " The peach is a native of Persia, where it still grows in a native state, small, bitter, and with poisonous qualities. Tobacco is a native of Mexico and South America, and lately one species has been found in New Holland. Tobacco was first introduced into England from North Carolina, in 1586, by Wallet Raleigh. Asparagus . was brought from Asia; cabbage and lettuce from Hol land; horse radish from Chili; rice from Ethiopia; onions and garlic are. natives of various places both in Asia and Africa. The sugar cane is a native of China, and from thence is derived the art of making sugar from it." THE WORLD.

The month, rolled round, and June succeeded March, and September " June, without payment being made to the great distress of the widow and uneasiness of ihefauctioneer. And after further appUca tion, the office-holderrefused absolutely to do anything, alleging it but of his power to pay. The sum was loo largo for the auc tioneer to spare out of his own pocket, or he would have paid it himself, so deep did ho foel for .the poor creditor.

Mauro returned to the President, handing him the note, who without saying a word, sat down and wrote on the back of the paper " Andrew Jackson." " Now said the General, " show Mr. P the endorsement, and if he don't pay you, let me know it." .
