In thy still beauty sitting calm and Ion e, A brightness round thee grew—and by thy side, Kindling the air, a form etherial shone, Solemn, yet breathing gladness. From her throne A queen has risen with more imperial eye, A stately prophetess of victory, From her proud lyre had struck a tempests tone, For such high tidings as to Thee werebrought, Chosen of Heaven! that hour; hut thou, oh, thou, Ev'n as a flower with grasious rains o'er fraught, The virgin head bener.th its crown didst bow, And take to thy mock breast tli' all holy word, And own thyself the handmaid of the Lord. The Song of the Virgin, Yes, as a sun-burst flushing mountain snow, Felt the celestial touch of fire, ere long On the pale stillness of thy thoughtful brow, And thy calm spirit lightened into song, Unconsciously perchance, yet free and strong Flowed the majestic joy of tuneful words, Which living harps the choirs of Heaven among Might well have linked with their divinest chords. Full many a strain, borne far on glory's blast, Shall leave, were once its haughty music pass'd No more to memory than a reed's faint sigh: While thine, O childlike Virgin! through all time Shall send its fervent breath o'er ever)' clime, Being of God, and therefore not to die. The Penitent Anointing Christ's Feet There was a mournfulness in Angel eyes, That saw thee. Woman! bright in this world's train, Moving to Pleasure's airy melodies, or in has Moving to Pleasure's airy melodies, Thyself the idol of the enèhanted strain. But from thy Beauty's garland brief and sey • ed five of the vain, When one by one the rose-leaves had been torn, When thy heart's-core had quivered to the pain Through every life-nerve sent by arrowy scorn; When thou didst kneel to pour sweet odors forth - On the Redeemer"» flet, w.th many a sigh. And showering tear-drops, of yet richer worth Than all those costly halms of Araby; Then was there joy, a song of joy in Heaven, For thee, the child won back, the penitent forgiven. Mary at the Feet of Christ. Oh ! blest beyond nil Daughters of the Earth ! What were the Orient's throne to that low seat, thy hushed spirit drew celestial mirth? Mary! meek listener at the Saviour's feet! No feverish cares to that divine retreat Thy woman's heart of silent worship brought, But a fresh childhood, heavenly Truth to meet, With Love, and wonder, and submissive Thought. Oh! for the holy quiet of thy breast, Midst tlie world's ëagar tones and footsteps flying! Thou, whose calm soul was like a well spring, lying So deep and still in its transparent rest, That even when Noontide burns upon the hills. Some one bright solemn star all its lone mirror fills.

We have already, more than once, alluded to the trial and conviction of William Teller, for the murder of one of the keepers of the Weathersfield prison,Ct. It appears that the unfortunate wretch clings to life with great He has addressed the following tenacity, in'prayer for mercy, to the Editor of the Hart j ford 'Times: in 1 at will is, Hartford Jail, August 21, 1833. I, WILLIAM TELLER, now in chains, and with but sixteen days more allotted me to live, take the opportunity to write to the good people ofthe state ot Connecticut, 1 acknowledge that I have been tried by the laws of my country, and by an impartial jury—and that jury has brought a verdict of death to me. I would have the good people of the State of Connecticut to know, that I was tried ina moment of excitement; when I was looked upon as a monster, mere than as a human being, and when all were against me and cried aloud tor my blood; but I would have the good people to understand that I never intended to take tlie life ot my fellow I endeavored to obtain my liberty, and 77 V in on with me man. who would not have done the same, hacl he seen fifteen gloomy years before him, and no prospect of obtaining his liberty, except by his own exertions. Althc ugh I have tried obtain my liberty, I deny the charge of —for 1 had no malice aforethought, premeditated any thing of the kind; but .. the contrary forbade my fellow prisoners to use any violence, but merely to secure the unfor'uuate man until we could obtain our liberty. But the unfortunate man tell, al though contrary to my expectations. And now, alas! it is to bring me to an ignominious death and an untimely end. But as I feel in nocent of the crime of murder andas my life will not bring the unfortunate matt back. to murder T il Por should it be taken, therefore I hope the good people of the State will intercede and save my life, if possible. I am willing to accept life on any terms, even if it be to banish me to the sandy deserts of Arabia; and should I obtain my liberty, I am resolved to become a good citizen, and would be an ornament to my friends and to society, with the help of God. X hope the good people of the State will not doubt my veracity, and my firm resolution to live a good and holy life, should I be sofortu nate as to have it lengthened out by the in tercession of the good people of the State of Connecticut—and especially as the good peo ple of the city of Hartford know the peculiar circumstances under which X was convicted. Oh! spare my life!—why punish me with unrelenting vengeance?—Oh! life! why cut me off in the bloom of my youth, and in the full vigor of-strength? Was I guilty I would not murmur, but willingly submit to my fate, but I declare before the world, and before God, the all-wise and Supreme Judge, and before whom we must shortlv appear, that I am innocent of the crime of murder, There fore, I hope that mercy will be extended un to me, as mercy is the brightest ornament in the Christian world, and the delight of Deity.

Two large parties, consisting of eighty men eaçh, were organized, one of which proceeded to Stanstead, the other to Dunham, in Lower Canada, about 40 miles apart: and before any suspicion excited, and at a time when it was known from previous information that most of the counterfeiters would be at home, their houses were surrounded, and the No violent resis was inmates apprehended, tance was offered, except in two houses, the doors of which being very strongly secured, it was found necressat y to force, with logs of .

At Dunham the number of counter feiters taken was thirteen, viz: Eben Gleason, Jun. ; Horace Gleason, Benja min Moses, Reuben Moses. Willis Sher man, Dr. Jonas Broadman, Alexander Nelson, B. D. Wing, Artemas Howe, and-Jones. Thirteen plates of differenlbanks were found in their possession—a large am ount ol forged notes, besides a quantity of counterfeit hard money, with dies lor stamping—a great deal of very costly machinery necessary to their purpose, together with a considerable quantity ot zinc, copper, &c. &c. in short a com plete and entire apparatus for counter feiting on the most extensive scale. 1 he persons apprehended at Stanstead were nut in irons and safely lodged in the pri son at Sherbrooke, (L.

We ought to have mentioned before, that at the in stigation of the association, a law has been enacted by the Legislature of Low er Canada, making the counterfeiting of bills of the Banks of the United States a criminal offence. The Duke of Cumberland .—In the Court of King's Bench on Tuesday last the case of the King v. Philips, which was a crim inal information filed against the defen dant, by permission of the Court at the instance of his Royal Highness the Duke of Cumberland, for publishing in a book entitled, "Authentic records of the Courts _ of England for the last Seventy Years," libels reflecting „on his Royal Highness, and imputing to him the commission of adisgusting offence, and also of murder, came on for trial before the Lord Chief ] Justice and a special Jury. The imput ed libels gave a detailed account of cir cumstances connected with the death of ^ Roya , H igh„ess's va i etS ems,in the X e ar 1810, in which it was asserted that (. T .

The Cotton Speculations .—Wehavebeen informed of various large sums of mo ney suddenly made, within the last ten days, by the great and unexpected rise in this staple article. One instance, as it did not occur here, we maybe permitted to relate. A New Orleans merchant, largely concerned in the cotton trade, happening to be in New York, the notion took him to make a trip to Liverpool, to which be was in reality induced more by the superior accommodation of the New York pai kets, than from any call of busi ness. He had no sooner landed in Liv erpool, than he made himseif in a few days perfectly familiar with the state of the Cotton Market. This knowledge, united to his full acquaintance with the market in this country, satisfied him that a rise was about to take place in Eng land. He proceeded to employ an agent who purchased on his account a very large amount of cotton. Before even the bills could be made out and the cot ton delivered to him, the rise in price which how agitates this market, sudden ly took place; and so great was the ad vance from day to day, that in one week the sagacious N\ w O lean s merchant re sold Ins cotton without having been o bliged to pay porterage,for a cash advance of two hundred thousand dollars.— Phil. Gaz. IVe learn of Capt. Beekman, from Carlhagena, that Col. W r oodbine, former ly of Florida, his wife and two daughters, who resided in the neighborhood of the citv, had all been recently murdered by a gang of slaves.
