Withered leaves are rou't.l n falling, To the wintry blat they bend, Whispering in accent mournful, '"All things beautiful must end." Nature robbe 1 of all her glory, Ueiiils unwillingly her head, Like a broken hearted mother Weeping o'tr her cherished dead! Ah, those leaves once green an 1 lovely, Oft I hailed them as my friends : Now no pleasing thought they bring me, To my heart no beauty lends. Yes ! they bring a sweet remembrance Of the happy, happy past; They are types to me and shadows Of eUirnal life at last. Withered 'eaves are round us falling, To the faintest breeze they bend ; Yet their falling is a token That this life is not our enJ. Yes! on every leaf is written, In my mind a holy thought ; Yes! the hope of life upspringing From the grave by them is brought. Though they're withered now and falling Down to earth their native tomb, Yet the parent stalk will flourish, And with fresh leaves bud and bloom. So our mortal frames will perish, Like thu falling leaves and sere ; Yet again will bloom and flourish, In a bright eternal sphere. THE BROKEN HEART. BY WASniNOTOX IUVIXG. . I never heard Of any true affection, but 'twas nipt Willi care, that, like the cattcrpillar eats The leaves of the spring's sweetest book, the rose." Middi.eton. . It is a -common practice with those wh" have outlived the susceptibility of early feeling, or have been I'roittrht up in the gay heHftlessi.esof'dissipated 1 fe, to lantrh a all hpest'-riis, and to treat the tales of romantic passion as mere fiction of nov elists ntid mets: - My observatirrrnm 'hu man nature h ive induced me to think oth erwise. They have convinced me thu however the surface of character may be chilled and frozen by the cares of the world, or cultivated into mere smiles by the arts of society, still they are dormant fires lurking in l he depths of the coldest bosom, which, when once enkindled, become impetuous, and are sometimes desolating in their effects. Indeed, I am a true be liever in the blind deity, and go to the full extent of his doctrines. Shall I confess it! I believe in broken hearts and the possibility of dying of disappointed love. I do not, however, consider the malady of ten fatal to my own sex; but I firmly be lieve that it. withers down many a lovely woman into an early grave. Man is the creature of interest and ambition Ills nature leads him forth into the struggle and bustle of the world. Love is but the embclishment of his early life, or a song piped in the intervals of the act. lie seeks for fame, for fortune. for space in the world's thought, and do-1 mination over his fellow-men. But a wo-j man's whole life is the history of the affec tions. The heart is the world; It is there her nviriec seeks for hidden treasures. She sends forth her sympathies on adven ture; she embarks her whole soul in the traffic of aflcction, and if ship-wricked, her case is hopeless for it is a bankrupcy of the heart. To man, the disappointment of love may occasion some bitter pangs; it wounds some feelings of tenderness: it blasts some prospects of felicity; but he is an active being; he may dissipate his thoughts in the w hirl of varied occupation, or plunge into, the tide of pleasure; or if the scene of disappointment be too full of pain ful associations, lie can shift his abode at will, and taking as it were the wings of the morning, can 'fly to the utmost parts of the earth and be at rest ' But a woman's is comparatively a fixed, a secluded, and a meditative life She is more the companion of her own thoughts and feelings: and if they are turned to ministers of sorrow, where shall she look for consolation? Her lot is to be wooed and won: and if unhappy in her love, her heart is like some fortress, that has been captured and sacked, and abandoned ami n n uesoiate. How many bright eyes grow dim, how t. i i many son. cneeKs grow pale; iiow many 1 lovely forms fade away into t he tomb, and none can lell the cause that hliuhtvii tin ir lovt iiuess: ,as the ove will dap its wings to its sides, and cover and conceal the arrow that is preying on its vUj-K so it is the nature of woman to hide from the pangs of wounded afiVeti n. ' The love of a delicate maiden is shy and si'ent. Even whin fortunate she scare ly breath- it to herself; but when otherwise, sin: buries it in the deep reccssenwif her bosom, and there lets it cower and hnjod among the ruins of her peace With her the. desire of her heart has failed. The great charm of existence is at an end. Sheneglects all the checrfur exercises which gladden the spirits, quicken the pulses, ' and send the tide of life iu healthful currents through the veins. Her rest is broken, the sweet ! refreshmcnt of sleep is jioisouetl by mel- nncholy dreams 'dry sorrow drinks her blood' until her enfeebled frame sinks un der the slightest injury. Look fur her after a while; and you will find friendship over her untimely grave, and wondering that one, wLo but lately glowed with all the radiance of health and beauty, should so easily be brought down to 'darkness and the worm.' You will be told of some wintry chill, some casual indisposition that laid her low; but no one knows of the mental malady that previously snapped her strength, and made her so easy a prey to i he spoiler. Site is like some tree, the pride and beamy of the grove: graceful in its form, Origin in its foliage, but with the worm preying at its heart. We (hid it sudden ly withering; when it should be most fresh and luxuriant. We see it dropping its branches to the earth and shedding leaf by leaf, until wasted and perished away, it falls even in the stillness of the forest; and as we muse over the beautiful ruin, we ', strive in vain to recollect the blast or than-, derbolt that could have smitten it with j decay. I have seen many instances of woman running ti) waste aid neglect, and pearing gradually from the earth, almost as if they had been exalted to heaven: aim nave repeateuiy iancieu mat i eonm ; ii . 1 1 t . l . tit trace their death through the various de- c;ensious of consumption, cold, debility laugour, melancholy, until I reached the first symptom of disappointed love. But sin instance of the kind was lately told to me; the Circumstances are well known iu the country where they happeued, and I shall give ihem in the manner which they were related. Every one must recollect the tragical story of 3 oung Emmet, the Irish patriot; it was loo touching to be soon forgotten During ihe troubles in Ireland, he was tried, condemned and exeeuted.on a charge of treason. His faie made a deep impres sion on publie sympathy. He was so young, so intelligent, so brave, so every thing ve are ii pi to like in a j'oni g m.in. tils condiici under trial, too, was so -lofty ii.d iinr. p.d. The uoble indignation with which he repelled the; charges of treason against his country, the elocpient vindica tion of his name: and his pathetic appeal io posLeruy.iu the hoi.-eless hour of -con-oeuiiiaiiou all these entered deeply into every generous bosom, and even his en emies laiueiited the stern policy that dic tated his execution. But there was one heart whose anguish it. would be impossible lit describe In' happier days and fairer fortunes, he won tha affections, of a beautiful and iu-l terestii.g girl, the tiai ehttr of a late! Irish barrister. She loved him with the; . t r . . . f . i i ! disinterested ferver ot u woman s first and : , , -vi in i early love.

To find it wajuler- ing like a spectre lonely, aud joyless, j ! where all arNuund is gay to see it dressed but in trappings of mirth, and looking so wan and woebegone, as if it had tried in vain to cheat the poor heart into a mo mentary forgetfuluess of sorrow." After strolling through the splendid rooms-and giiMy tow1 vriih on iiir of utter abstrac- tion, she sat htrstlf down on the steps of the orchestra, and looking about for some time with a vacant air, that showed her insensi'tility to the garish scene, she began with the eapriciousness of a sickly heart, to warble a little plaintive air. She had an exquisite voice, but on this occasion it was so simple, so touching, it breathed forth such a soul of wretchedness, that she drew a crowd mute and silent around her. and melted every one into tears. The sfory of one so true and tender could not but excite great interest in a country so remink.ible for its n'husiasm. It completely won -the heart of a brave o flicer. who paid his addresses to her, and thought that one so true to tiff dead could not but prove affectionate to the living. She declined his attentions, for Iter t houghts were irrevocably engrossed by the memo ry of her former lover He however per- Msled in his suit He solicited not her tenderness,- but her esteem. lie was as sisted lv her conviction of his worth, and her sense of her own destitute and de pendent situation, for she was existing oil ' the kindness of friends. In a word, he at length succeeded in gaining her hand, .though with the assurance, her heart was j disap-;mia!ierablv another's. lie took her with him to Sicily, hoping that change of scene might wear out the , . remembrance ot early woe. bhe was an amiable and exemplary wife, and made an effort to be a happy one; but nothing could cure the silent and devouring mel ancholy that had entered into her very soul. She wasted in a slow and hopeless decline, and at length sunk into the grave, the victim of a broken heart. It was on her that Moore, the distin guished Irish poet composed the follow ing lines : She is far from the land where her young hero sleeps, . And lovers around her are sighing ; But coldly she turns from their gaze and weeps, For her hea.t in his grave is lying. He had lived for his love for his country he died; They were all that to life had entwined him Not soon shall the tears of his country be dried Nor long will his love stay behind him. Oh make her a grave where the sunbeams rest; Where they promise a glorious morrow, TluytUl, sinile. o'er her sleep like-a .smile from ; the west, Ftom her own, loved Island of sorrow.

The carriage was at the door; it was a bitter cold night; I could hear the coachman swinging and slapping, his arms to keep hi hands warm. I wound up the musical box for excite incut, and listened to its soulless jingle for occupation; I had made the little King Charles spaniel siaud on his hind legs un til he began to think that was his normal position. 1 tried with my right hand to coax "Uncle Ned' out of the piano much to the chagrin of that instrument, whose mission was classical music. 1 beat a retreat from the realm of sweet sounds to that of sweet feelings my patent leath er boots were awfully tight. In blissful i agony I heard, at last, the opening of a Uouv, a musical laugh, the rustling of silks, and J,here, before me,-just giving the last tightening to her glovedace, was Blar-che Derceau. Such a seraphic smile, such a cooiiii" voice! "And did I keep him waiting? the dear little Arthur! And did he grow fretful?" "In the lexicon of politeness which fate has ordained for a bright man of the world, there is no such word as fretful," I an swered. I had been studying this answer for two hours Bulwer gave the lesson. As I replied, my eyes fell on the ball costume of Blauche. The pyramids of Egypt were evidently intended to be represented by that dress, her head the apex, and the bot tom of her skirt the base. I had to open my eyes wide to take ii: the full circumference there was no end to that lower hoop! "Can she get out of the front door?" thought I. "Granted; yet can she getiu- outside with the driver," I mildly asked her this last thought. "Never, dear Arthur, on such a night as this. Ride inside, only put your feet up on the cushion; then I can stand up." 'Kiud-hearted Blanche," thought I, what sacrifices you make for one you love. " I entered the carriage first; it was not gallant but then, she insisted upon it! Then she came iu how, I can't teli; but she did. Then, standing up like a hippo drome girl in her charriot, and holding on to the straps, we started offfo "attend Madame llavencouri's grand ball. CHAPTER II. It was a full house; how it would have gladdened the hearts of a prima donna at a dollar a head. Through the crush of human beings I stepped onward with. Blanche; once only I thought it was all up with the whalebone, but we got through, a little bent, but still lastic. Occasoiual ly, a passer-by would sweep the skirts round till I saw those dainty chaase tiny feet, and her figure looked like a dinner bell cut in two; but the wave swept ', on, and the pyramid was a pyramid. "Will you waltz?" I said to her as the music sounded. "Oh, no! 1 never waltz now." ; " Confound these hoops," thought I. But we "did" a quadrille very easily. Duly two steps, and the figure was com plete; an awkward steji from the gentle man its a vis, and rip weut the lady's skirts, hoops, &e., then c ine apologies, retreat to the dressing room .. , , , repairs im- possible had to send home for the car- 1..: :.wi !-.! i... c.i.M i utzc i-u, mo-tuu w itu.iiii a owicuum Of evening, iiaucue aim fill 1 1 I she sat down on the seat now, and I took her dear little gloved hand iu mine, and poured conso latiou into her heart rode home before 1 1 o'clock v.h, horrors ! CHAPTER, III. In a few days, Blauche and f will be married. Hoop, hurrah! The wedding ring I wish it was some other shape, it reminds me so much of hoops now lies on the table. And that cartload of whale bone I saw going into her house one day last week ; "Blanche," said I, "is there an um brella factory near you?" reminds me that the bridal dresses are being built. Blanche hasn't been to church for three months owing to the narrowness of the pews and the width of her hoops. . CHArTEtt IV. I sit down in my arm chair, and won der if such things can be possible, and if what was, was right; and I've come to the conclusion that everything is that is. My wedding day! "Now, old boy!" I soliloquized, "you can only go through this operation once iu your life three or four times at the outside. Just raise the window and see if there are any unusual operations going ou in the heavens above, or in the garden below, or over in the neighbors' houses the other side of the street. othing. Then nature is inaus picious. There will be a ro w to-day some where !" Prophetic words! We were to be mar - ried in church, en (rani- teihie. at 10 o'clock in the morning. The hour came, carriages, friends, c, along with it. We went up to the church. We descended, walked up to the door side door very narrow bride conldu't get throngh : could not get into church.

Reason ani Instinct of Anisals. BY THE HON. GRANT LEY BERKELEY. We are puzzled to account for scent, or the power of tracing things by nose'. J or to set it down as a mere smell, for this reason a hound will trust his nose, into and cover his lips with'Tdl sorts of fteti l carrion by the roadside, till the refuse matter with which he" is externally and internally laden' taints the 'surrounding air, and. is so perceptible to man that thi; nose of man is disgusted. In this foetid state the hound will hunt out and trace at speed the footstep or scent of a hare," but which hare, even if the man goes to the form she has been sleeping in and Ins just left warm from the pressure of -her limbs, cannot in the remotest degree be smclt.by him. Scent, therefore, is not, merely, a smell; if it was, it must be interfcred'with by scents of a cliEferent nature, : and -of infinitely greater; power What the fact is, then, that serves the' hoiinti must be a mystery, and the capability of tracing it evidently arises from the more peculiar gifts than are generally supposed. ' Now, suppose we take an otter recent ly kilied: man can discover very little, if auy smell arising from the beautiful fur and form of that creature; while if you take a fox that is recently killed the smell of that animal is very, strong so much so, that the hand of man will be' tainted by its mere touch; yet to the hound the scent of the (to man apparently) scent less auimal, the otter, is tenfold stronger and more capable of xletectipn than, is the smell of the absolutely .stinking: animal, the fox Therefore,, the line lefs. by crea tures, enabling the Tiound in some weathers to follow it at the top of his speed, must be a gift of nature more mysterious than the simple act of smelling. It undoubt edly is a power imbibed through the or gans of the nose; but to ,what that power extends, at present, we have no means of judging. , . L . . - j , . A question has often arisen in my mind as to whether the scent, or line of "trace, left by an auiinal, arises from the breath or simply from the Foot, or .whether it comes from sources of combination. The" breath of an animal enables a hound to hunt and speak to its presence or ' td its whereabout, as proved by the bubbles or chain of the otter nrising, when the ani mal is ten feet and upwards below the sur face of the water. - - The foot or slot of a deer holds a scent in itself, as proved by the bloodhound Druid. When on very stale "slots," he slightly disturbs the crust of the impros siou purposely with his paw, to.nssist him in ascertaining its freshness. Thu breath and the foot of an animal combined have certainly, therefore,' to do with the power derived by the hound; but, in my opinion, there is some oilier adjunct and occult principle, which has not yet been ascer tained. This fact is established, that, the strongest smelling animals, those emitting taints to the.air quite evident to man, are n t the animals the strongest or sweetest in the olfactory , organs .of the hound. That the scent floats on the air improved, by pointers and setters winding feathered game at a long. distance, and when the wind serves him, by Druid's going straight up to a deer at a gallop, who is lying Jmi lair a mile off; also by foxhounds ruuuing a fox, or by hounds running a deer,' shut out from their sight by a thick hedgerow, and from whose footsteps they are abso lutely divided. The organ of detection through the olfactory nerves enables a dog to trace his master among a million men; therefore, there must be some other atT tribute than the simple act of . smelling 1 . T. f for- though there are .different degrees cfPenceSfcrau jowiieeu-. smells, and, so to speak, some men are , in- . . - - I, finitely sweeter than others, . still the taint is much the same, and to man sufficient!) remarkable to serve as a guide to dcttc tion. Again, the fact of a ';d-:Tg" be-! fore hounds, . whence there., is, no living principle of breath, proves , that hounds will run a mere stench : so I , repeat there, is uo possibility of dejining what it ii.lhat induces or enables the houud to .follow-that which, living or .dead, he' has thns the power of pursuing. , r . s JCThc editor ; of tho WooMsocke!
