Once more, once more, my Mary dear, - I sit by that lone stream, Where first within thy timid ear I breathed love's burning dream; The birds we loved still tell their tale Of music on each spray, And still the wild rose decks the vale But thou art far away. In vain thy vanished form I seek, By wood, and stream, and dell, And tears of anguish bathe my cheek Where tears of rapture fell; And yet beneath these wild wood bowers Dear thoughts my soul employ, For in the memory of past houis There is a mournful joy. Upon the air thy gentle words Around me seem to thrill, Lake sounds upon the chords When all the winds are still. Or like the low and soul-like swell Of that wild spirit-tone Which haunts the hollow of the bell When its sad chime is done. I seem to hear thee speak my name "In sweet low murmurs now, I seem to feel thy breath of flame Upon ray cheek and brow; On my cold lips I feel thy kiss, Thy heart to mine is laid Alas that such a dream of bliss Like other dreams must fade! i winu-narp s G.

Soon after the adjournment of the Constitutional Convention, we no ticed the attempt of the Ohio States man to make political capital out of it, by charging the Whigs as having brought it about, in order to render the Convention and its majority un popular with the people. Although this was not very consistent, coming from a party that has a majority of nearly twenty in the Convention, one of whom moved' the adjourn ment, yet with the peculiar logic of that press, it was asserted. Although the extent which Columbus has suf fered with the cholera, has put the propriety of the adjournment be yond all question, we give the follow ing from an address of Mr. Case, of Licking county, a Locofoco member of the Convention, to his constit uents: "Touching the adjournment of the Convention, it is known that the law calling it contemplated that circum stances might arise which would make such an event necessary; hence provision for it is made in that law At the time of our adjournment, such were the circumstances sur rounding us, that I think I am safe in saying that there was not a single delegate who did not admit the pro priety of some adjournment. But members were, as was to be expect ed, much divided in opinion as to time and place. Many who voted against the resolutions for adjourn ing, were most clamorous for some adjournment. But some for private, and others for public reasons, could not concur with the majority as to time and place. For some days be fore the adjournment we were often without a quorum in Convention, and it was ascertained that on the day the adjournment resolutions passed, we should have been left without a quorum in the city, had not members about to leave consent ed to remain long enough to pass the resolutions, lhe resolutions passed on Monday morning at about 10 o'- ciock, providing inai.wnen we ad journed the next Tuesday morning it should be to meet in Cincinnati in December. Yet such was the impa tience of members, that at 3 o'clock Monday afternoon there were not forty members left in the city; and majority of the twenty-nine who voted against adjournment were at that time among the milsine. So that when we assembled on Tues day morning we were unable to transact important business for want a quorum, there not being forty members present. i ed ed trie r ana Fitz Henry Warren. The efficiency and ability with which Col.

She feels that she has no right to be taxed and not protected to be taxed and not rep resented to be taxed, and nothing but taxed. .Nothing else has been done for her.

The fact that earth or soil brough up from different depths of the Earth has, when exposed to the sun or air, become covered with vegetation, has led many to suppose that the whole earth, from center to circumference, is full of seeds. This cannot be the case, but there are, nevertheless, re markable instances of the fact above named. We once threw up a lot o coarse gravel, late in the fall, from a depth of nearly ten feet, and early next spring it was covered with big weeds which grew very luxuriantly The greatest depth we ever heard of seeds buried, we find in a recent ex change paper. In boring for water lately at K.ingston-upon-the-Thames, some earth was brought up from a depth of three hundred and sixty feet. This earth was carefully covered with a hand-glass, to prevent ihe posibility of any other seeds being deposited upon it; jet, in a short time, plants vegetated upon it. English Paper. From the Journal of Commerce. IS THE EARTH FULL OF SEEDS? a para graph in yesterday's Journal of Com merce. In 1345, while waiting at the foot of the White Face Peak of the summit a fire broke out in the woods of the eajtern slope of the mountain, and soon this gigantic mountain was wrapped in a sheet of flame." The trees and every com- bustible substance on the surface was consumed, and the thin cover- ng of loose earth (about a foot in thickness) on the rocks, was calcin by the heat. About three years Iterwards I again visited this moun tain and found the burnt district a- ast field of blueberry bushes. Du ring fruit senson, m re than 2,000 bushels of blueberries were gather in this field for the Montreal mar- et. About forty years ago, the ex tensive barrens lying between Cum berland and Green river, in Ken tucky, were covered with high rass, trawbernes and wild nowers. Among tiie latter the morning glory Every autumn when the grass had become dry, it wns fired either by unters or Irom the enmp fires of flit ters. 1 have seen a fire many miles length traversing these barrens with the speed of a race horse. No trees could grow there, but the grass resprouted and appeared to gather new life from the lire. Since the barrens have become settled, the au tumn fires have been prevented, and is now a thickly wooded district. Chestnut, oak and hickory have sprung up, and when I saw the first early growth, it looked like one vast nursery, bounded on all sides by the horizon. In my examination of the exten sive plains lying between Lake On tario and the river Ottowa, I found that district of pine timber, that had been swept by the flames, was sup plied by a new growth of hardwood place of the pine. IN ear the bor of lake Chamnlain, on lhe west side, farmers cultivate blueberry bushes: they pile brush on tneground out for the berry field, set fire the brush and burn it, and the year the blueberry bushes spring up in abundance. These facts bear witness to the harmonies of nature, and give evi dence of the fertility of our beauti ful earth. The most ancient ac count we have of our earth, makes mention of the "grass, the herb yield ing seed, and the first tree yielding after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth." The "fire weed is well known among farmers. This weed is plant by the fire. The place where a pit has been burnt, may be easi ly distinguished by the luxuriance of vegetable products. When Jiotz was in the far Northern sea, he anded upon an island covered with 1 His men, in making an exca vation, found that this island was a of ice, and that the loose earth which the grass was growing, was six inches in thickness.

' The SanAntonio (Texas) Ledger states that a high handed outrage was recently perpetrated by a party of the U. S. troops at Fredricksburg, disgraceful to the service and all concerned, and calls fof vigorous ac tion on the part of the war Depart ment. The Ledger says: "On Monday evening, the 1st inst. a party of U. .S soldiers left their camp near fredricksburg, and marched into town, mounted and fully armed. They immediately sur rounded the store belonging to Messrs. C. J. Cook & Co., of this city and having placed stroiH. guards in every direction, to pre- vent the approach of any ol the citi zens oi the town, proceeded and broke open the store. A young man about eighteen years of age, a clerk in the establishment, was ordered to procure them' a light which order was enforced by a pistol presented at his breast. They then ordered hi.-n to leave the store in his night dress, not even permitting him to take his own clothing. The burglars then deliberately piled a quantity of com bustible materials in the centre of the floor and set it on fire, the guard on the outside, in the meantime, pre venting the approach ot any person, either to extinguish the flames, or save any article from the store; and the result was that the store and its entire contents, including the ar- chives and records of Gillespie coun- ty, was entirely destroyed. The building was the property of Mr. Chester B. Stark, of Fredricks burg, and cost $1500. It was rent ed to C. J. Cook & Co., of this city. at a yearly rent of $150. The book accounts, notes and merchandise de stroyed is estimated at from $9,000 $10,000. In addition to this, all the archives and records ol Gilleipio county, including deeds, mortgages, &c, belonging to private persons, as well as bonds and vouchers of ad ministrators and executors, in short everything appertaining to the Coun and r rebate Courts were entirely dertroyed.' The circumstances which led to this disgraceful affair, was an affray that occurred on the previous day be tween a man in the employ of Cook Co., and a soldier, in which the. latter was killed. The evidence went to show that the former was acting in self-defence, and was ac cordingly admitted to bail. This so enraged the soldiers that they threat ened to burn down the town, unless accused was delivered into their hands. The burning of the store shows how far the threat was exe cuted. rf"7A daughter.aged 12,of George Giisssell of Rensselaer, Ind., commit ted suicide on the 23d ult., by hanging herself. She had accidentally bro ken a crock and was afraid of pun ishment. She dressed herself in suit able burial clothes and telling her little brother that "she never would break another crock," she got upon bed, tied a bridle to the joist, fas tened it around her neck, and jumped, Her brother succeeded in repla cing her upon the bed, but she jump ed off the second lime, and before he could obtain assistance she was dead. A fact never to be forgotten by ungovernable tempers. Chief Jus tice Shaw, in charging the jury, ia trial ol Prof. Webster, used the following: "It is a settled rule that provocation, with words only, justify a mortal blow. Then if provoking language the party intentionally revenge himself with a mortal blow, it is unquestionably murder." A droll story is told of the Nepaul ese ambassador, now in London.
