Let me go, the day is breaking Dear companions, let me go; We have spent a night in waiting In the wi'derness below; Upward new I bend my way, Part we here at break of day. Let me go: I mav not tarry, Wresting thus with doubts and fears, Angels wait my soul to carry Where my risen Loid appears; Friends and kindred weep not so " If ye love me, let me go. i have travell'd lone together, - Hand in hand, and heart in heart, Both through fair and stormy weather, And 'tis hard, 'tis hard to part; While I sigh "Farewell!" to you, Answer, one and all, "Adieu!" 'Tis not darkness gathering round me That withdraws me from your sight; Walls of flesh no morn can bound mo, But, translated into light. Like the lark on mountain wing, Though unseen, you hear me sing: Heaven's broad day hath o'er me broken, Far beyond earth's span of sky; Am I dead? Nay, by this token, Know that I have ceased to die; Would you solve the mystery, Come up hither come and see. to ry Small is the sum that is required to patronise a newspaper, and amply rewarded is its patron, we care sot how humble -and unpretending the paper which he takes.

We have been permitted, (says the New Haven Palladium) to make the following - extract of Vr private letter received in this city, from . an American gentleman now in Europe. The writer had no expectation of its publication; the reader will, howev er, we doubt not, be pleased with its perusal, more so, perhaps, than if it had been a studied production: I crowded so much into my brief stay in Paris as to jade body and brain, buch a succession ot won ders pealed, clap after clap, upon me that I was fain to cry enough; such a continued strain of magnificences, that my sated curiosity asked for something common by way of re lief. I was in a painful state of ten sity; I began to fear that my eyes would not relax to their usual diam eter, and that I should present my self in quiet Geneva with a couple of protruding eyeballs, as though I were fresh from some soul-harrowing fright By night it was the came; gaudy equipages made a high way of my brain: miles of pictures on walking frames, marched slowly, making me obeisance; whole palaces danced a polka, without shaking down a brick, and, perhaps, you will not believe it, but more than once I woke to find my palate suf fused in floods of saliva, which imag inary delicacies had evoked. Thus it was wearisome by day and fever by night, and I was as hot in the morn ing as if I had slept over landlord Will's bakery; and I grew fashiona ble, too, in Paris kept late hours, and tried to go the elegant, trifling, &c, &c ' Why not? He who has five dollars to spend is as rich and important, as long as it lasts, (and his manner of spending it suggests more,) as tie wno has fco.UUU. it is not the reality of the thing, you per ceive, nor. the self satisfaction that you are what you claim to be, which measures a man's comfort, but public opinion the estimation of others. Candor never requires a man to confess himself a dunce, or the world confess him a Crichton. So I rung the hotel bell mullitudin ously, called garcon up something less than 300 stairs to scold him about the boots, vawned into the breakfast room at ten o'clock, sip ped my coffee, and called lor "Gal ignani," took my wine at dinner as though I had been used to it, and pa trolled the streets till midnight. The true Parisian never sees the sun rise; he takes his coffee and roll per haps in bed, certainly in his room, breakfasts on a chop at eleven o' clock, generally at a cafe, where he collects the morning gossip, then goes and gets shaved and perfumed by his barber, takes a saunter on the Boulevards, then a drive on the Champs Elysees, comes home to din ner, and here his morning commen ces; lrom this time to three o clock past midnight he is in his element; gay, brisk, vivacious, gliding lrom opera to theatre and lrom that to ball, till his bed rests him for the same mane lite another day. All aris is alive in the evening; the gay, the simple, the vile, the mere gazer ke myself, the sharper, the revolu- tianaire, stately dames and ambi tious politicians are all abroad. Shops are brilliant, streets buzz with the many voices, the pavement patters the mao7 sounding feet, gas lights glitter, the false fair assail you at eve step, the cafes resound with laugh ter, dice and domino. - Every hell of amusement is crowded the saloons sparkle with the bright array; fash ionable folly rules triumphant in ev ery corner. Un ounday this is par ticularly so; then the devil and ail imps have holliday, and they keep it in Paris. Eery body seems frantically determined to do all he dares in the face of Heaven, and af fronts the great king more than he would any earthly potentate. There was opposite to my hotel a very fashionable magazine, or dry good store, as we call such. On Sun day it had what was called a "dis play;" i. e. the ample halls were thrown open, decora ted most taste fully with the richest goods the world affords, to the inspection of the public. I watched the scene from my window. The rain fell in torrents, yet the street from one end the other, was jammed in with lashionable ""carriages, disemboguing their costly clothed inmates at or sear the door of this temple of fash ion. But this was a mere inno cency to some other things 1 could mention. . At the same time the churches are devotionally full. What life! what a life!. I do not see'how the French, whose characteristic is insane love of pleasure, can be any thine but frivolous, hollow hearted. unsubstantial, incapable of any thing that is great or immortal. a I of on of d ly. ed ish he or to for of I aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa My letter was minute enough about the great sights of Fans may mention one or two little things which would seem trifling but in letter to a sister. The bread for in stance. I never saw any yeasty compound that can compare with u; absolutely some of it would shame show for purity, or might stand in the worlds metaphor for a standard of whiteness; white as Paris bread! Upon my word, I thought I never could eat enough. It is a famous staple in Paris, lorming, with sour wine, the sole (almost) subsistence of half the population. It is one of the articles which Government in sists on keeping cheap, for a hungry Parisian populace would be a dan gerous thing to deal with. There fore, vou may see it festooning win dows (eating houses) in all manner of complex and inviting forms; it is trundled through the streets; you see ragged urchins munching it at street corners, loafers as you know immediately: emphatically the staff of life here," for I have seen a man lugging along a huge post of bread the price of a few sous, on which ha could well lean as a crutch or you will see it in a rim form, big as a cart wheel, or else in a loaf large enough for a cannon target. At the hotels it is brought to you in rolls about eight inches in length, with a brown crisp crust this with coffee, is fit for the lips of the Grand Turk, and I wish no other breakfast. But as I said before, there is, with the Parisians, a differ ence between coffee and breaklast one is "coffee" per se, taken in deli cious loneliness, and the other is technically "breakfast." But we Americans at tho hotel combine the two. after calling for a steak. The Americans are perhaps the only na tion who breakfast heartily. You are aware perhaps, that the Paris ho tels have only one regular meal per day, the dinner or table d'hote, at five or six o clock, the morning meal is taken either at the cafes, or if at the hotel, only as called for from eight to twelve o clock, no two persons ever being seen to breakfast together. The table d'hote is the meal which concentrates the French man's utmost of ceremony, style and taste in cooking. It is the custom for many Parisians to dine daily at particular table d'hote, paying ev ery day for their meal as they go out. Here again are the comlorts ol a home! don't you say so? This ta ble d'hote is managed with the most exquisite nicety, on the principle ol making a little go a great ways. Course follows course in quick suc cession, each being prepared at a side-table, so that for each course you can take only so large a piece is prepared for you; hardly two things are served together, bread be ing the great offset for everything. Even pommes de terre are served up alone; and, as for management, can tell you, I have seen a couple chickens (one of the courses) serve fifteen people, so minutely calcu lated is everything. One Astor din ner would keep a 1'ansian table d'hote a week; yes, what is wasted it in unscientific carving. Yet, every body feels after dinner that he has eaten enough, he hardly knows what. The price of a good table note is five francs, one dollar near I ate ignorantlv in Fans, not knowing how oue-half that nourish or vitiated, as the case might my blood; I was a little squeam at first, but soon found that it was no use, and finally went into ev ery thing boldly. I do recollect one thing, though, I one day ate two cab bage heads; and you know 1 detest cabbage; yet I could have eaten twenty-four more; how do you sup pose? I was speaking of bread, but butter is a curiosity. Not a par ticle of salt ever touches it; it is made every day, and is as white as driven snow; is brought into the breakfast (never dinner table) in lit tle thin pats of about a dollar's size, exquisite little nothings, of which an American stomach could store a doz en; but stop, each pat has it price af fixed, and before one is long in Paris learns to content himself with one two. Do you think, by the way, that these non-essentials are put on your table in abundance, of which you can take or leaver wo; so much and if yen call lor more, pay j it. Mite by mite the coral in sect builds its palaces, and ounce by ounce the Paris cuisimer or maitre d'Hotel makes his money. Every mouthful has its carefully computed value, and be very careful how you eat, for behind the door of a little side room is remorselessly going the omniscient pen, and francs in your bill afford you a very fair estimate just how many bites you have ta ken during your sojourn in the ho tel. I naid for evpry nun re of blood which I manufactured in Paris. on of ing -?-her her the Frenchmen do not eat much butter, and especially they do not like salt in it. Ah, yes, another change; no hotel furnishes soap not knowing this on your arrival, you ring lor a piece you leave in three days call for your bill, "and there you find charged a cake of soap, one franc- no disputing you must pay. That same piece of soap is removed from the room, and serves to multi ply francs in the same way again and again. Why it is the inexhaust ible sixpence. Again as you are go ing through the provinces, stop at a hotel; you take a light to bed with you, ol course; next morning you find one franc for bougie, (wax can dle,) as they facetiously call them; pay you must, though you have burnt but one half inch. If you stay long at a hotel, your bougie is numbered according to your room, and you use the same every night. Cf course, in the former case, the same bougie answers for a dozen individuals, and a half franc's worth brings to the ho tel keeper two hundred percent; but travellers soon find out this, and do as I did, before I had been !"ng in ranee on leaving in the morn ing, pocket the candle! So the su gar at a cafe; a quantity is brought you take a piece or two, but are charged for the whole; but after being three or four days in Paris, you learn to empty the sugar you don't use into your pocket. Funny things you see in this world. it Follow Nature. We are never ridiculous when we act as nature dic tates; when we assume what she never gave us, we at once become ridiculous. A very just comment. "A bear," says some author whose name we have forgotten, "is a most grave, and quite respectable animal as a bear; but, should he set up for a dancing master, he would be sure to be laughed at for his pains." But then a bear knows belter, it is only men who get into "false positions," and so make themselves ridiculous. The disposition shown by so many persons to figure in matters for which they have no natural aptitude, is thus severely satirized by Swift: "A dog by instinct turns aside, Who sees a ditch too deep and wide, A foundered horse will oft debate Before he tries a five barred gate. But man we find the only creature Who, led by folly, combats nature; And where his genious least inclines Absurdly bends his whole designs Civilization is not so much the triumph of religion over the human heart as woman, from the very moment men begin to live in a regu lated society as soon as gentleness and persuasion replaces the violence of barbarism a new wish makes Us appearance in society a wish to understand and appreciate women Uncouth manners are abandoned lor standing collars and poetry, while a passion for flutes and moonlight eve nings supercedes cowhide shirts and sheep-skin continuations. Asbmith ers very justly observes, who can look dimity in the face without ex claimfng"whai an elevation." Ay Eleoajit Compliment.

While Edward III, in 1337, re pea ted his invasion of Scotland, and "ravaged the country with great fury, burning Aberdeen and many similar towns," as the historian tells us; and while he was engaged in raising an army to Invade France in 133S, exacting from the impover ished English people all their wealth to waste in war and when he was wasting France with war, borrow ing money irom ail loreign princes who would lend him, pawning the English crown which made- him a king, that he might still furlher ex tend destruction over fertile France; when, in the battles which our his torians and poets have so minutely recorded, and loftily sung out, swords clashed with swords, and battle ax es rung upon the coats of mail, the warrior-heroes of France, there was a servant of mankind making a noise in Bristol, which was of infinitely greater service to England than the entire conquest of Europe would have been. This was Thomas Hlan ket. Tho noise he made was not that of the clashing sword, but of the Clashing shuttle. His purpose was not to destroy what his country al ready possessed, but to give his coun try what it did not yet possess blankets, a covering of comfort to go to bed with, to sleep under, that might be refreshed in sound sleep, and rise in heaith and strength to its daily work of making mankind hap pier by being happier itself. Thom as Blanket was soon imitated by his neighbors, who, like him, set up looms in their own houses, and made woollen cloth like that which he made. The cloth was named by his name; and to this day ."through all time in this country will the name known, though nothing else is known of this weaver than that he was the first to introduce the blanket manufacture in England. . .. Kt . i t i-jLjt o cloth of any kind had beenrr weaved in England belore the reign t rij j i,, ti.- j bdward 111. 'We read that in 1331 John Kemp, from Flanders, introduced the weaving of cloth into England; that the King invited ful lers, dyers, and so lorth, to come from Flanders and settle here. This policy on the pait of Edward was discreet; and, viewed m connection with some other of bis actions, prove him to have had some perception of real sources of national well- being. But he no sooner allowed cloth manufactured to be im planted in England, than he almost rooted it up again by restrictive en actments and oppressive taxes to carry on his wars. The manufac ture of the twisted double thread of woollen, called worsted, was intro duced into England about this time, soon after. The village of Wors ted, about fifteen miles from Nor wich, was the first place where this thread was made, and it took the name of the village. There is no spinning nor woollen manulartures Worsted now, but from the tombs the grave yard, and the benefac tions left to the parish, which are recorded iri the church, we have proofs that the manufacturers of Worsted were numerous, opulent. lived there in successive genera several ce'.turies. It also be noticed here, that after enquiring into the history or the parish and manufac urers of Wors we visited Linsev, which gave name to the fabric known as lin- wolsey, and the Kersey and the Mere close to it in bunolk, where the workshops were situated, in which cloth called kerseymere was first made. The cloth so called now dif from the original, and there is little trade of any kind in Kersey now. But, as at Worsted, the grave and the church have many re cords of manufacturers long deceased. Their names, though now Anglicised common in Suffolk, are all of Flemish origin'.

During the 1 1th Parliament he was elected five times and so olten expelled "the gov ernor and the colonial office opposing the expulsions and the Legislative Council sanctioning them. Macken ie s offense was the expression of his opinions in a public newspaper, Wheri first expelled, he adressed the freeholders to the effect, that they knew his sentiments and conduct in that and the previous Parliament he would neither retract nor apolo gize but that it he did not truly represent them, their course was open, they could elect and employ auuuier. ii again returned ne said he would understand their votes as an endorsement of his public conduct and condemnation of that of the Legislature. The 12'h Parliament tore the votes of expulsion from its journals, but the District Magistrates refused to pay his wages because he had not received the previous spea ker s warrant on. their treasurer. The new assembly could nol pay up arrears of wages as a contingency of the session, for the Home District had been specially assessed foi the service, and no bill to pay the debt would have passed the Legislative Council as then constituted. Recent events, however, have given the peo ple the power to pay such arrears with interest, and Mackenzie would have applied to the Council lust year, hut he had to leave Toronto to es cape fiom midnight violence.

"Tita Bitter E.xo." We are sor ry to see so many evidences that "the bitter end" cf political hostili ty is to be invoked against Gen. Tay lor's successor. But an article in the Post of last evening, and in the Penn sylvanian of yesterday, gives sad as surance that both branches of the party mean to begin their warfare early, and to prosecute it with un sparing fury fo the bitter end. Such predetermined opposition should unite the Whig party of the country once against this unscrupulous warfare, which has been commenced before the deceased President is com mitted to the crave, and in advance the utterance of any official opin ion whatever on the part of the pres. Chief Magistrate. The country will not suotain such a mode of war fare. N. Y. Express. A Vbterah. A late Paris paper says, that the Minister of War had given an order that an old soldier, Kolombeski by name, and of Polish origin, should be admitted into the Hotel des Invalides, whither he soon repaired. He was born early in the reign of Louis XV., and is one hun dred and twenty-six years old. He served in all tho wars to which France was a party, against Frede rick the Great, and had been long in service when the battle of Fontenoy fought. At the commencement the first French Revolution, ho ' seventy years old, at d about ninety when the Empire went down. had lived under ten forms of gov ernment, and has seen more political convulsions and changes than any living, probably; which have passed by him, perhaps, as the idle wind which he regarded not. lr"01d Whitey,"tbe veteran war- of the hero of Buena Vista, for med an effective and affecting part of procession, at Washington, on the occasion of what the Journal of Com merce calls "the funeral obsequies," on Saturday.
