Those light repats, where young Content And Temperance stood smiling on: The maiden step, the seemly dress, In which thou wen'st along so meek; The blush that, at a look, or less, Came o'er the paleness of thy cheek.

Legare, Minister of thc United States of America at Brussels, went to Antwerp a few days back with a view to obtain information for tlie con clusion of a Treaty of Commerce between Belgium and the United States, which has been in contemplation for some time post." The following melancholy story is told in Galignani's Messenger of the 7th ultimo. "On Saturday evening a lady and gentleman on returning home from the Theatre, found that the youngest of their children had been strangled by its eldest brother, seven years old, who, on being interrogated as to lus in ducement to commit an act so atrocious, de clared with tears and sobs that he onl) to do as he had seen Punch do tho evening before upon the Boulevard." - •ant - Singular Habits of Lifer An old gen tleman by the name of Hirte died lately at Lebanon, Pennsylvania, having "run salt, we ][ with Father Time," and reached the outpost of ninety.

It may be f useful, too, to destroy worms, which so often nfest fruit trees, without injuring the trees themselves, and to remove skippers from bacon without affecting the .neat.
