Who arc sleeping? Children weaned with their play; For the stars of night are peeping, Arid the sun hath sunk away. ' As the dew upon the blossoms .Bow'them on their slender stem, So, as light as are their blossoms, -o Calmly sleep hath conquered them. They are sleeping! Who are sleeping? Mortals compassed round with woe; Eyelids, wearied out with weeping, Close through very weakness now; And that short relief from sorrow, Harrassed nature shall sustain, Till they wake again to-morrow. Strengthened to contend with pain. They are "sleeping! ' Who are sleeping? Captives in their gloomy cell; Yet sweet dreams are o'er them creeping, With many a colored spell. AH they love, again they clasp them Feet again their long lost joys; Bat the haste with which they grasp them, " Every fairy form destroys. They are sleeping! Who are sleeping? Misers, by their hoarded gold; And in fancy now are heaping Gems and pearls of price untold; Golden chains their limbs encumber, Diamonds seem before them strown; But they waken from their slumbers, ' And the splendid drem is flown. They are sleeping! Who are sleeping? Pause a moment, softly tread Anxious friends are fondly keeping Vigils by the sleeper's bed; Other hopes have all forsaken,' One remains that slumpers deep; Speak not lest the slumberer waken : From that sweet and balmy sleep. They are sleeping! Who are sleeping? - Thousands who have passed away From a world of woe and weeping, To the regions of decay! Safe they rest the green turf under Sighing breeze or music's breath, Winter's wind, or summer's thunder, Cannot break the sleep of death' WHAT A SERMON SHOULD BE. It should be brief; if lengthy, it will steep, . Our hearts in apathy, our eyes in sleep; The dull will yawn, the chapel-lounger doze, Attention flag, and memory's portals close. It should be warm; a living alter coal, To melt the icy heart and charm the soul: A sapless, dull harangue, however read. Will never rouse the soul, or raise the dead. It should be simple, practical, and clear; No fine spun theory to please the ear; No curious lay to tickle letter' d pride, And leave the poor and plain unedificd. It should be tender and affectionate, As his warm theme who wept lost Sa lem's fate; The fiery laws, with words of love al lay'd, Will sweetly warm and awfully per suade, It should be manly, just, and rational, Wisely conceived, and well express'd withal: Not stuffed with silly notions, apt to stain A sacred desk, and show a muddy brain. It should possess a well-adapted grace, To situation, audience, time, and place: A sermon form'd for scholars, states men, lords, . With peasants and mechanics ill accords. It should with evangelic beauties bloom, Like Paul's at Corinth, Athens, or at "Rome; While some Epictetus or Sterne esteem, A gracious Savior is the gospel theme! It should be mix'd with many an ardent prayer, To reach the heart, and fix and fasten there: When God and man are mutually ad dress'd, God grants a blessing, man is truly blessed. It should be closely, well applied at last, To make the moral nail securely fast: Thou art the man, and thou, alone, will make ...... A Felix tremble, and a David quake! On the 1st : of ' May, a most shocking accident occurred on the Peru vian coast..' A large armed ship belong ing to- the Peruvian Navy, called the Mercadio, had been sent to a small port some three leagues north of Callao, to bring, up troops. ' The steamer Semac was sent with orders to tow the Merca dio back to Callao. - The -tow lines broke, and the ship' drifted against a rock, where she bilged, and swinging clear, sank, carrying down with her 820 men, 73 1 of whom perished!

But did not the thought Ion" wander ia the grave, Let the WipUdv. embodied as it were, into thousand varied hues, gild the portals of the tomb; ana stream lite to auroral glory, toward heaveju ; -.: i . : ; A TOUCHING INCIDENT. I went one night to see a comedy. The chief actor was a favorite, and the theatre was densely crowded. The cur tain drew no amidst a burst of applause, and the hero of the piece made his ap pearance. He had hardly said twenty words when it struck me that some thing strange was the matter with him The play was a boisterous comedy of the old school, and required considera- ble spirit and vivacity on the part of the actors to sustain u property; uuv iu mis man there was none he walked and talked like a person in a dream; his best points he passed over without appearing to perceive them; and altogether he ap peared quite unfitted for his part. His smile was ghastly, his laugh hollow and unnatural, and frequently he would stop suddenly in his speech, and let his eyes wander vacantly over me auaience. Even when in his character of a silly husband, he had to suffer himself to be kicked about the stage by the young j rake of the comedy, and afterwards to behold this individual make love to his wife and eat his supper, while he was shut up in a closet from which he could not emerge his contortion of ludicrous wrath which had never before failed to call down plenty of applause, were now such dismal attempts to portray the pas sion, that hisses were audible in various parts of the house. The audience were lairly out 01 tem per, and several inquisitive individuals were particular in the inquiries as to the extent of the potations he bad indulged in th at evening. A storm of sibilation and abuse now fell around the ears of the devoted actor, and not content with verbal insult, orange peels and apples flew upon the stage. He stopped and looked around at tbe shouting crowd. I never saw such misery in a human countenance. His face was worn and haggard, and large tears rolled down his painted checks. I saw his lips quiver with inward agony I saw his bosom heave with convulsions of sup pressed emotion, and his whole mien betokened such depths of anguish and distress that the most ruthless heart must have throbbed with sympathy for the unfortunate actor. The audience were moved, and by degrees the clamor of invective subsided into solemn si lence, while he stood near the foot-lights, a picture of dejection. When all was calm he spoke, and in a voice broken with sobs that seemed to rend his bosom, proceeded at once to offer his little explanation. "Ladies and gentlemen," said he, "though in my acting to-night I am conscious of meriting your displeasure, yet in one thug you do me injustice I am not intoxicated. Emotion alone, and that of the most painful kind, has caused me to fill my alloted part so badly. My wife died but a few short hours ago, and I left her side to fulfill my unavoidable engagement here. If I have not pleased yon, forgive me. I loved her, I grieve for her, and if an guish can excuse' a fault, I bear my apology here?" He placed his hand upon his heart, and stopped; and a burst-of tears re lieved his momentary paroxysm of grief. The audience wire thoroughly affected, and an honest burst of sympa thy made the walls tremble. Women wept aloud and strong men silently; and during the remainder of the evening his performance was scarcely audible above the storm of applause by which the crowd sought to soothe the poor fellow's feelings. There was something very melan choly in the thought of that wretched man's coming from the bed of death to don the gay 'attire,-and uttfcr studied witticisms for the- "amusement of a crowd, not one of whonr dr?amed of the anguish which lay festering upon the, painted cheek and stage smile. And in the great theatre of life, how many are there around us like that poor actor, smiling gaily at the multitude, while at home lies some mystery of sor row, whose shadow is ever present with them in busy places, and in solitude revels upon their hearts like a ghost among the tombs. Learn All Tor Cak. Never omit any opportunity to learn all you can.- Sir Walter Scott said, that, even in a stage-coaph, he always found somebody who could tell him something he did not know before. Conversation is frequent ly more useful' than books for the pur pose, of knowledge. It is, therefore, a mistake to be morose or silent, when you are among persons whom you think ig norant, for a little sociability on your part will draw them out, and they will be able to teach you something, no mat ter how ordinary their employment, Indeed, some of the most sagacious re marks are made by persons of this de scription, respecting their particular pursuit. - Hugh Milton - the famous Scotch geologist, owes not a little of his fame to observations, when be was a journeyman stone-mason, and working in a quarry. Socrates well said that there is but one good, which is knowl edge, and one evQ, which is ignorace. Every grain of sand helps to make the heap. A gold-digger takes the smallest nuggets, aud is not fool enough to throw them away, because he hopes to find a huge lump some time. '-i So, in acquiring knowledge, we should never despise an opportunity, however unpromising. If there is moment's "leisure, spend it over a good or instructive talking with the first person you meet. Mm. Akha Cora Mowatt's Mar- riagk. We take the following brief description of the event from the JT. T. Timet: The company began to arrive, in car- riages, by the hour earliest named on Mrs. S. G. 0den'8 card, and by 3 1-2 o clock a party of some five or six nun- dred guests had assembled, when the was announced to take place in one of the principle saloons of the spacious mansion. It was impossible, of course, that this, the most interesting incident .of the occasion, should be wit nessed by any very considerable portion of the numerous company. It was the good fortune of the favored few to mark, with peculiar interest an interest that we are sure will be appreciated by our lady readers the appearance of the bride in a dress of superb white silk, inlaid with lace, and deep flounced, and a long bridal veil of costly thread lace, secured by a myrtle wreath; the toilette altogether exquisite, without sacrificing simplicity to extravagance. She was attended by six bridesmaids, m embroidered white muslin; two of them her own sisters, Misses Emily and Grace Ogden; another a niece, Miss' Margaretta Ogden, and three other young ladies from Boston and Cincin nati. The fortunate bridegroom, Mr. Ritchie, was of course attended by the corresponding number of friends. The ceremony was after the Swedenborgian form, novel of course - to nearly all the spectators. It was performed by Rev. Mr. Keene, with impressiveness and proper solemnity, using the ring, as in the Episcopal ritual. Ihe solemnity ol the scene was well nigh being disturbed by the peculiar pronunciation of the nuptuaiie" and the quaint reading of "congugal love. It was also inter rupted by a fine burst of music from the band of Mr. Dodworth, which though nominated in the programme, was not exactly according to the Rev erend gentleman's understanding of the forms of the Church, and which brought him to a momentary pause. The ceremony over, the presentation of the company to the happy pair took place, and it was 5 o'clock when dancing and waltzing commenced, and Dod- worth's model Band brought into active requisition, leading off with the cele brated .Wedding Quadrille. This was kept up until after 8 o'clock, the wed ding pair meanwhile taking their leave on an excursion, the precise destination of which was not given out, but sup posed to be up the Aorth luver; to re- turn in a few days and then to go to Virginia, when they join the family of the bridegroom. The company was altogether one of the most elegantly dressed, and, in other respects, distinguished which has been brought together on a similar oc casion for many a day. The event brought together a number of the promi nent Southern and Washington City friends of Mr. Ritchie. Ex-Secretary Walker was present, and Senator Doug las and several Representatives in Con gress, f rom this Uity, besides a large array of beauty and fashion, there was a large number of the members of the legal and medical profession, merchants, military gentlemen, Ac. The scene at Ravenswood was truly enchanting the grounds, without, richly and luxuriant ly adorned by nature and ornamented by taste, and the halls within made generous by all that elegant hospitality and profuse abundance could provide. It was a scene of continued (easting and pleasure giving to the eye and the taste. . I The Extremes of Life. The follow ing, by a correspondent of the People's Beacon, is enough to make the fairest of earth's creatures look twice into the mir ror, and doubt the truth of its reflection the loftiest intellect doubt its own conclusions the happiest of beings look around for some lurking sorrow the most miserable to imagine himself sur rounded by felicity and the most vile and degraded to consider himself a deity. There is, however, an admirable spirit of humor, as well as truthfulness, in the remarks of the correspondent; and we commend them to the careful perusal of those who are looking for perfection in this life, and also those who are constantly denouncing the world as nothing but 'a vale of tears' 'a wilderness of woe.' 'The very sun has black spots and troubled nebulosities amid its effulgence.' 'Aye! and the loveliest valley has a muddy swamp, and the noblest moun tain a piercing blast, and the prettiest face some ugly feature. The fairest com plexion is most subject to freckles; the handsomest girl is apt to-be proud; the most sentimental lady loves cold pork; and the gayest mother lets her children go ragged. The kindest wife will some times overlook an absent shirt button, and the best husband forgets to kiss his wife everytime he steps outside his gate, and the best dispositioned child in the world get angry and squall; and the smartest scholar miss a lesson; and the wittiest wit say something stupid; and the wisest essayist write some nonsense; and Homer nod, and Wordsworth snore; and stars will fall and the moon suffer eclipse and men won't be angels, nor earth heaven.' - .. A .Good Dkfihttiok. At a social party one evening the question was put, "What is rplifrinn?" Poi;," What is religion?"

Providence tempers the east wind to the shorn lamb. Violent attacks ot grief only comr. on at rare intervals. Sometimes the widow seems as though she had forgotten her loss, but all at once a circumstance, apparent ly inainerent, recalls it, and she falls back into grief. Yet she dwells from time to time upon the faults of the be loved, but it is only to contrast them with his dazzling virtues. This period would be tiresome enough for the world at large; therefore it has been decided to express it simply by half mournin. "5th period. There is now only a softened melancholy, which will last all her life, i. ., six weeks. This touch ing and graceful sentiment shows itself by a quiet gray silk dress; the sufferer less feels the loss than the actual depri vations oi a nusoand. "When any lady loses her husband. it is requisite either to pay her a visit of condolence, or to address a letter to her. It is customary in these cases to make use of such language as admits the probability of the greatest possible grief, that oi Artemisia, for example. Fontenele, however, thought proper to send a blank letter to a young friend of ins who had lost an old husband, say ing he would fill it up three months afterwards. When he did so, he began 'Madam, I congratulate you-' But this is quite contrary to custom. Therefore, when a widow loses an old avaricious husband, from whom she inherits a large fortune, you ought not the less to entreat her not to give herself up to despair, and take care to look as though you believed it was law and custom alone which prevented her from burying herself with him." TnE Figure Nike. A correspondent over the signature of "Ledger," sends a Cincinnati editor the following. I have just read in your paper what has often before been published, respect ing the curious proportions of the figure 9. One of these properties is of im portance to all book-keepers and ac countants to know, and which I have never seen published. I have accident ally found it out, and the discovery to me (though it amy have been well known to others before) has often been of essential service in settling complica ted accounts. It is thus: The difference between any transpos ed number is always a multiple of 9; lor instance, suppose an accountant or nook-keeper cannot prove or balance ins accounts there is a difference be tween his debts and credits, which he cannot account for, after careful and re peated addings. Let him then see if this difference ean be divided by 9, without any remainder. If it can, he may be assured that his error most pro- oRDiy ues in nis having somewhere transposed figures, that is to say, he has put aown Z lor 29, 83 for 38, fec, with any other transposition. The dif ference of any such transpositions is al ways a multiple of 9. The knowledge of this will at once direct attention to the true source of error, and save the la bor of adding up often long columns of j ngures. l he difference between 92 and 29 is 63, or 7 times 9; between 83 and 38 is 45, or 5 times 9; and so on be tween any transposed number. , Th Momihtocs Qux8H0jr.-T-Well, Charlotte, now you have decided on the brocade, what lace do you 'mean to trim it with?' Why, Amelia, I really don't know: what do you think!' Oh, Charlotte, dear, ' how should I tell? What do you say to 'point? I saw some in Broadway, to-day, at 920 the yard!' 'That's just the thing. Let's see- takes twenty yards, don't it?' Xes, love; and if von have anything over, you can give it to me; if there's anything I admire, it's 'point' lace. George says it is extravagant, but I see 'no fuu in stinting -one's self; do you dear?'. a [From the Providence Journal, June 6.] A Furious Elephant at Large. The large elephant Hannibal, attach ed to the Broadway menagerie, which was on exhibition at Pawtucket on the 2d instant, got loose from his keeper on the way from Pawtucket to Fall River, early yesterday morning. Before start ing his keeper made him lift the hinder pan ui m wngou ioaaea wim s,ouj pounds, for the purpose of getting it in to line. It is supposed that this, al though not unusual, might have sug gested to him the mode of attack which he adopted afterwards. When about seven miles from Pawtucket he became furious, turned npon his keeper," who had to fly for his life and take refuge in a house, got free, and rushed along the road, destroying everything in his way. Meeting a horse and wagon belonging to Mr. Stafford Short, he thrust his task into the horse and lifted horse, wagon and rider into the air. He mangled the horse terribly and carried him about fifty feet, and threw the dead body into a pond. The wat?on was broken to Uh..tM.M.rf tusks in this encounter. A mile further :r.u:- the elephant, now grown more furious, attacked in the same manner a horse and wagon, with Mr. Thomas W. Peck and his son. He broke the wagon and wounded the horse, which ran away.- Mr. Peck was pretty badly hurt in the hip. While the keepers were engaged in securing the smaller elephant, who had not, however, manifested any signs of insubordination, the larger one got off from them, and went through Uarney ville, when Mr. Mason Barney and an other man mounted their horses and kept on his track as near to him as was prudent, giving warning of the danger to the passengers whom they met on the way. The elephant would occa sionally turn to look at them, but did not attempt to molest them. The next man in the path was Mr. Pcarce, who was riding with his little son in a one-horse wagon. He was coming towards the elephant, and be ing warned by Mr. Barney, turned round and put the horse to his speed, but the elephant overtook him, and seiz ing the wagon, threw it into the air, dashing it into pieces, and breaking the collar bone and arm of Mr. Pcarce. The horse disengaged from the wagon, escaped with the fore wheels, and the elephant gave chase fur eight miles, but did not catch him. The elephant came back from his unsuccessful pursuit, and took up his march on the main road, where he next encountered Mr. J. Eddy, with a horse and wagon.- He threw up the whole establishment in the same way as before, smashed the wagon, killed the horse, and wounded Mr. Eddy. He threw the horse twenty feet over a fence, went over and picked up the dead horse and deposited him in the road where he had first met him. , , , ' He killed one other" horse, and pursu ed another, who fled to a barn; the ele phant followed, but at the door was met by a fierce bull-dog, which bit his leg and drove him off. Once on the route, the keeper being ahead of him, saw mm piunge over a wan ana make ior a house. The keeper got into the house first, harried the frightened people with- in to the upper story, and providing him- with an axe. succeeded in driving tne furious beast. The elephant exhausted his strength, and laid him- self down in the bushes, about two miles from Sla.lo's Ferry. Here .e was se- cured with chains; and carried over the ferry to all River.

' It is necessary to add that this wash should be applied as soon as possible after the infliction of tbe bite. The following are tbe results of this treatment: From 1810 to 1824, the number of persons admitted into the Breslan Hospital was 184; into the Hos pital at Zurich, 233 persons bitten by different animals, (182 by dogs,) of whom only four died."

The wounds, he adds, should be constantly bathed with it, and three or four doses diluted, taken inwardly during tne nay. ine nartsnorn decomposes chemically the virus insinuated into the wound, and immediately alters and de stroys its deletenousness. The writer, who resided in Brazil for some time, first tried it for 'he bite of a scorpion, and found that it removed pain and in flammation instantly.'- Subsequently he tried it for the bite of the rattlesnake with similar success, - At the sugges tion of the writen an' old fnend and physician of England tried it in cases of hydrophobia and always with success. j j [From the Meigs County Telegraph.] i won(3cr therefore, that every good cili sclf wliethcr native or adopted will sac off riCce his iifc his fortunej and bia honor t0 maintain the law. ; 2 0ne of tic 6trongest arguments 'd by Native Americans U, "that the t mass 0f fort isn(.rs wi,0 emigrate to llis coim(ry aro raL.n who come herc Resisting thx Law.

The jury returned a verdict of guil ty and the prisoner was sentenced to ten days confinement in the county jail, and fined 820. He refused to be taken to jail, and, assisted by several of his Ger man friends, made an attack upon the sheriff, when about to execute the sen tence of the Court. This caused a gen eral melee, in which the liquor party came off second best. The prisoner was tumbled into jail, considerably bruised, and those who assisted him in endeavoring to escape, have left town, nope lorever.

That there is much truth in their assertions no one will deny; who is acquainted with the facts, and this on ly adds weight to their arguments. It is true, their views are partial and un just.

Further than this, there is no escape from these pen alties, except by leaving tht eottntry. If the forces in any neighborhood are not sufficient to punish the offenders, the officers have aright to call in requisition all the forces in the State and nation. 5. The foreign population are apt to overrate their numerical ttrenglh. Hav ing been accustomad to settling in large numbers in cities, and towns, where la bor is in demand, and being accustomed to hearing their political power greatly exaggerated by demagogues who flatter and deceive them to gain their confi dence, they have somewhat eome to think themselves far more numerous and of far more political importance than they really are.

The closing scene of the expedition and arrest of the band are thus narrated by the San Francisco Commercial Ad vertiser: "With thirty-three men, the whole of his force, he was on his march for San, Diego, and had arrived near the boun dary line on the 7th inst., being coo tinually harassed by a considerable force of mounted Mexioans under Melendrez, who, however, bad not the courage to make an attack upon the command. On the 8th, Walker advanced to within three miles of the boundary line, and encamped on a hacienda called 'La Tiaj sun- uanna. 1 he Mexicans were on the enrmnnInn v;il r..; rc:-., ow vuuuui 1 HO. ii ClJVri T .f IL.

Captain Benton obtained the per mission of Melendrez to cross the line, and also went to Walker's camp.' By him Melendrez sent . a demand to sur render, granting them permission to cross our territory if he and his men would deliver up tbeir arms. To this Walker paid no attention, simply saying that the. Mexican General could have their arms 'if he could take them. Things then became very warlike and the American officers informed , the Mexican General that ttey were not in the least concerned in the matter, and he wanted to fight they should not interfere being there merely as Ameri can citizens. - - Walker then took up his line of march along the main road to San Diego, and n lfi.rlf.flna fiprron Irt manonwA I,.... upon the fillibuster line, until within mile of the boundary line, when the Mexicans took post on an eminence, di rectly opposite where a large number of spectators from San Diego were posted see the fight, and made a displavas - determined to prevent Waller's fur-" . progress. As the latter neared the Mexicans, he ordered an advanced guard of nine men with rifles, to charge upon the enemy, which they did with a cheer. The Mexicans, without firing av put spurs to their horses and gal loped away, leaving Walker and his party to pursue their way unmolested." Arriving at the boundary, the party halted before crossing, and Walker had parley with Major McKinstry and Benton, (U. S. Officers senttoar-f his force.) The conference resulted Walker and friends - surrendering themselves, on parole of honor.
