Our hearts are still by Jordan's stream. And there our footsteps fain would be; But oh, 'tis like the captive's dream Of home his eyes may never see. A cloud is on our father's graves, And darkly spreads o'er Zion's hill, And there their sons must stand as slaves, Or roam like houseless wanderers still.

The lovers of gossip will find enough to cloy a moderate appetite in the sub joined article, which is part of the pri of the London correspondence vate Times. The Princess Caroline of Naples, over. of Bourbon blood, the sister of the late reigning King, the sister ofthe King of Spain, the niece of Louis Philippe, the grand-daughter of the Austrian Cæsars, the mother of Mademoiselle de Berry d'Artols, and of the child of the miracle, the Duke of Bordeaux, now Henry V. ac cording to the reckoning of Legitimacy, is, sfter all, Madame, the Countess Hec tor de Lucchesi Palli. Well, then, there is a happy mortal who has ingrafted a daughter on his Royal stock, and has shared the couch of the Princess Regent during her Vendean excursions, but who doubtless, is happy enough to have escap ed the disagreeable affair of the Chateau de la Peniciere. We may now have a ofthe nature of the dreadful and guess irreparable misfortune of which the Countess de la Rochejacquelin spoke and deplored. In spite of all this, doubts have arisen to the reality of this union declared to have taken place between the widow ofthe Duke of Berry with Count Hector de Lucchesi Pa'li. The period of the birth throws back the epoch of another event to the month of August, 1833.— Now, if this M. Lucchesi be, as we are assured he is, the Neapolitan Charge d'Affaires of the same name at the Court of the Hague, it is certain that M Lucch esi Palli was in the month of August at at the scat of his mission, and there is nothing to show that there could at that time be Sft" intercourse between this di plomatist and the Duchess. But there is always something miraculous in the confinements of her Royal Highness.— She has again given to the world a mi racle-born child, for which her new hus band is doubtless grateful. Do you wish to know something more ot this M. de Lucchesi-Palli, husband by declaration, father presumptive? I will tell you. Count Lucchesi Palli (if he put forward Blaye and the Minister at the Hague of which as of at be one and the same person, there seems no doubt) is a man of .thirty orthereahout, and of the middle size. His features, which are pitted with the small-pox, are of a very common cast.— His deportment is grave, but affected.— In general he is altogether wanting ' dignity; there is nothing in his manners like the man of rank, nor even the gen tleman. He passes his evenings v ith the financier Ouvrard, Madame de Rossi, formerly Miss Sontag, and the Countess du Cayla. He often dines at the table d'hote of the Gand Doelen Inn. You will easily conceive the great vex ation of our legitimist devotees at their Idisappoiniment. The most fanatical of tii Eli a the set take refuge in a denial ofthe facts, would notwithstanding the mostformal andin disputable proofs. M. de Kergorlay de- it is dares that he will not believe in the event of until he has seen and touched. Herequ ires proof as decisive as that given by done the Duchess at the birth of the Duke of Bordeaux, when calling her attendants done around her, and uncovering herself be fore them, she said, •■'■Voyez it tient encore a ma personne" words since repeated with transport, and which have, I know It not why,! made her Royal Highness be compared to Blanche of Castile, the mo then of St Louis. itancc You must have' been amused by the ly. proposal of some of our legitimists to the make the case of the prisoner at Blaye a he subject of legal investigation. It is not him conceivable that her friends could have emy wished to see her appear before a pub lie tribunal with all the signs of preg- visit nancy of so little edifying a nature.— you There was much bad faith in^this pro- young position, and our Republicans were not when they joined in chorus have ith the Royalists to demand atrial.— Great What they wanted was something which bable might give opportunity for riots, and the chance of an overthrow. The Ministers, however,acted with much prudence in not allowing themselves to be intimidated by all the united cries of the factions. the But what is now to be done with the the Countess Hector de Lucchesi Palli? It him is generally believed that she will be sent can off to her own country; to try whether domestic happiness will there make her the to regret the loss of her former that greatness, ''tnthemean time itis impos sible hut that this childbed declaration, these, circumstances of secret marriage, for which seem to be brought forward as an tion, afterthought, should not revive the sus- ing picions which have existed respecting sin, the extraordinary birth of the Duke of Bordeaux. It is not easy to reconcile and the extreme fondness of the Countess for this new-born daughter, whom she wishes to unrse with her own milk, with no the little affection she used to-show for a to son whose life was valuable to her, as it promised to secure to her the highest de stiny. It is not less difficult to explain how 3 he could so easily separate from him, and incur the risk of depriving her self forever of the happiness of seeing It is now reported that we shall soon have various revelations on this sub ject, and curiosity is more easily awaken ed as the public mind has never been completely satisfied respecting the facts. I recollect that during the July days cer tain influential persons then said—"The ppositious birth, so often suspected, of the Duke of Bordeaux may be one day proved. In that case the Duke of Or leans must not be allowed to imagine that the crown has some to him by succession, and that he no longer owes it to the na tional will and our election. Every thing must, therefore, be so arranged, that if such an event should occur, he will not dare to appeal to any other right tl an that which we now confer upon him in the name of the people." You will par don my dwelling so long on the captive of Blaye; it is the question ol the moment, and it is rendered much more important by the consequences which may result.— I shall perhaps soon have occasion to re turn to it. more sincere w cease ous by ant ing a ns day, day a be not day face till the of nim. a a su at is de Every where Europe seems to be set Our hostile fac tlinginto tranquility. evidently sensible to their total defeat, and their follies only excite the pity of a people who, under a sky become suddenly magnificent, as it were, by a sort of coquetry, readily find employment and resources for the enjoyment of vari ed and inexhaustable pleasures. Your correspondents have doubtless already told you that Paris was never more an imated and brilliant than at present, and the provinces are in unison with the cap ital. The famous republican dinner of 6000 persons, which was to have taken place at Lyons, is indefinitely postponed. The government had determined to dis perse this seditious assemblage. Oriental affairs seem to he taking a If there still exist any tions are A favorable turn, difficulties, they can only proceed from Russia. Mehemet Ali has acquired a high degree of power, and he will not compromise the conquests he owes to the last campaign by refusing some con cessions of minor importance, requested by sovereigns whose friendship it is his interest to cultivate. The Frankfort row is a Tugenbund affair, set a going with too much confidence in assistance from our propagandists. But these tenebrous powers are not yet among the number of earthly dominations, and have too great ly alarmed Germany and even France, to allow them to rely for any support from the populace. Moderation, which never excludes firmness, will prevent intestine troubles, if a general war dose not pro voke them. With us the reaction m the republican excitement has led to the sub stitution of a sort of Napoltamsm. Jo seph Bonaparte is by some regarded as the heir of the imperial system. It ap pears that a fraction of the republican v party proposed to unite with him if he the ' gen the table vex their of tii would but limit his pretensions to being Piesidentof a Commonwealh. Joseph, it is said, has suggested a modification of these overtures. As the empire waa overthrown by foreigners, and violence done to the nation, he thinks that the empire ought to be formally restored, done to the nation, he thinks that the empire ought to be formally restored, leaving it to the country, through its re presentatives, to change the constitution, It is possible that Joseph Bonaparte may continue to regard as valid the votes and senatus consulta which placed the inhet itancc of the imperial crown in his fami ly. He may be seeking in good faith the recovery of a high position, which he considers as of the right belonging to him ; but he is a good man, and the en emy of all violence and excess, Rumor has not failed to attribute the visit which the Duke of Orleans has paid you to political combinations. young Prince will doubtless carefully collect the information which he may have an opportunity of obtaining m Great Britain, but it is by no weans pro bable that he has been sent on a special mission. We hear with pleasure of the favorable reception of this Prince, whose amiable character is duly appreciated by all persons, in proportion as they have the honor of approaching him. As to the stories about a marriage between him and the Princess Victoria, nothing can be more absurd, But it should: be recollected that the Duke of Orleans is the brother in law of King Leopold, and that the Princess Victoria, the destined Queen of England, has lhe Queenof the Belgians lor her aunt and Louis Phillipe for her grand uncle. 1 his approxima tion, through the alliances of the reign ing families in France and Great Brit sin, has a historical singularity, Our second session is proceeding well, and will produce a good Iruil. l he present Chamber will certainly be dis solved after the session of 1834; it is by no means probable that it will be allowed to reach its fifth year. - G. The Holt's Spring. —The opening of a copi ous spring of excellent water under the. city, by Mr. Holt, at his-great hotel, is an inter esting fact, and may perhaps lead to import ant results. The'Gazette gives the follow ing particulars ï.i relation to the subject. "The digging of the earth commenced 22 months ago, and at the depth of 40 to 50 feet, a vein of fresh, impure water was found] which induced Mr. H. to go farther down. When he had dug to 130 feet, he came to a rock, on the surface of which flowed water, ns salt, or satter than ocean water. Not succeeding in his pursuit, he was induced to apply the drill, which has been at constant work, a large portion of the time, night and day, wrought by a steam engine, till Satur day last. In this vast depth, which is as great as any perforation on record, the en gineer, believes his tool has been appfied to a solid rock, as hard as granite and gneiss could form it, without once penetrating any other stratum. The rock during the last three or four months work has been found to be nearly as hard as flint, and the drill did not descend more than from 8 to 10 inches & day during the whole time in which it has been employed. The pipe which was inserted into the sur face of the rock was not properly secured against the flood of salt that continues to pass over it, and which rises in the tube to the ocean's level. This fact may account for the fresh water now found not rising to the sur face of the earth, mingling, as it probably does, and passing offin the same vein through* which thesalt water flows. It is intended immediately to apply the proper remedy against the salt water flood, till which time it will be impossible to test the quality of that from the fissure.—This will be effected as soon as the proper instru ments can lie made. Mr. Holt employs constantly, three men, each with ahorse and cart owned by him self, and two others whom he hires, to bring him water from Trnpphagan's well more than two miles from his house, at of eight dollars a day. tied into four cysterns, holding 125 hogs heads, and his daily consumption f.ir drink ing, cooking, and washing, is twenty-four N.
