•Forever ringing as we shine.1*
I deck the night with gems of light,
In azure realms I roll
And shine upon the fields of space,
That stretch from pole 10 pole.
Years may not quench my glowing fire
Nor time my lustre pale
No legal ornament can vie
With Heaven's spangled veil.
I robe with beauty every scene
That makes the earth so fair
There's not a spot so waste or wild,
But I can sparkle there.
There's not a stream, however
Its winding current be,
But bears my ray upon its breast*
And gives it back to me.
I look upon the haunts of men.
And watch the turmoil there:
Immortals, struggling for the boon
That only mortals share.
I look upon the grave yards t'len,
Where gathered millions lie,
With nothing but the robe of death,
That earthly dross could buy.
I mark the upturned weary, eye.
That seeks my glittering sphere.
Unconscious that the vales of rest.
For sainted ones, are here.
Perchance, some spirit disenthralled.
Is whispering to tbee now,—
Ijee the smile upon tby lip!
The light upon thy brow
ft tells the of my crystal stream?,
My blooming, happy bowers
Where ever verdant foilage screens
The sweet unfading flowers.
It tells thee of my gates of pearl,
My walls of jasper stone,
With lamps unquenchable, thatitave
For countless
ages shone.
It tells thee that the ties of earth
Will be cemented here—
Although Death's portals must be crossed
Ere fields of light appear.
Thou'rt not so distant as t'would seem,
When gqzing from afar,—
Ere break of day, thy home may be
Within thy favorite star.
Spirit of earth! each glowing orb
Has messengers of peace—
To hover round thy couch of death,
And bid its terrors cease
To catch thy struggling soul, when falls
Its prison house of clay,
And bear it on angelic wings
To Heaven's cloudlcss day.
POLITENESS
or
gentleman, recently from the
city of Mexico, gives us the particulars of
sn attack upon the stage and the subse
fluent robbery of the passengers by a body
of Mexican brigands.
Two stages left Mexico in the morning
for Publa. Few of the passengers had
vms, and our informant, who was the on
ly American, had but a single pocket pis
tol, and thai was stowed away in his trunk
A
guard of six dragoons accompanied the
atages. and all went on well until they
reached the pine unods in the vicinity of
Rio Frio. Here some eighteen gentlemen
of the road, who were dressed as ranche
ros suddenly appeared from behind a small
grove, and discharged their carbines and
pistols at the guard. The latter, with the
single exception of the corporal, fled at the
first fire. The corporal charged in among
tie robbers sword in hand, but received a
fistol ball in the neck, he too left the une
^ual conflict, and rode off as fast as his
ttorse would carry him.
The passengers of the two stages were
now politely requested by the captain of
the robbers to step out and undergo a
•iarch. Their trunks were overhauled,
and all the money and valuables, together
with such articles of clothing as the rob
bers might chance to fancy, removed.
From our informant they took some three
hundred dollars in gold, and he says that
the robbers, in good set phrase, begged his
pardon for thus putting him to the ineon
wnience. One gentlemanly scoundrel
said that it was with the greatest reluc*
tance he thus levied taxes but hard times,
and the difficulty of obtaining an honest
living any other way, induced him to his
present calling. He sincerely hoped that
our friend was a rich man and had plenty
.pore where the present money came from,
£tid after politely raising his hat, turned to
•Parch some other person. After collect
ing money and valuables, to the amount
of some three thousand dollars, the rob
bers told the drivers of the stages they
night proceed on their journey, and thev
finally drove off amid the "uclios. cabelle
ofthebunditts. The gentleman who
fives us this account says he could not
.feuj laugh at the easy but impudent polite
ness of the robbers, although far from be
pleased with the loss of his money.—
FROM REXAS.—We learn by our
late southern papers, that Com. Moore
had another engagement with the Mexican
Steamers on the 16th ult. The action
lasted four hours. The Austin had but
3 men killed, but the Gaudaloupe, with
^hi«:h she was engaged, had 47 killed and
$0 wounded. The whole matter is repre
•ented as being highly creditable to the
I exans. They have held public meetings

MEXICAN STAGE ROB-
FJU.VJF.
BY MISS 5ID6WICK.
Gray, in the most familiar of his exquisite
Stanzas in a country Clwtch-yard, Full ma
ny a gem" &c.,) has expressed most poetical
ly the waste of a false position in life. I he
fond partiality ofe*ery
It is a single good fortune when an indivtcf&sf
has a right position in life. The office of Pres
ident of the United States is one of the high
est among men, and he who worthily fi.ls it is
the peer of kings and autocrats. Washington,
the elected head of the American people, was
truly kincr of kings. Bui if the nation put in
that place a man only fitted to be a clever ward
politician, or a skillful oveeseer of a planta
tion, he is a mark in the pillory, not the light
set on a hill.
We 6ee every day men in a false position
in places as ill-fitting as a garment would too
wide, or perchance too narrow. Men are rais
ed to offices of trust and honor, that are wor
thy neither of the one nor the other and stout
frames, which nature 1ias bujlt of muscle and
6inew able to subdue the wildest of our wild
land, are in places behind counters, that wo
men of ri»ht and grace should fill. Do we
not all know ladies in drawing-rooms, cumber
ers of that ground, who would have figured as
first rate milliners! And mistresses of our
city palaces, who would have been inestima
ble market-women And yellow, languid,
fine ladies, who, in their right vocation as
chamber-maids, would have been brisk and
blooming And do we not know those in ob
scure and humble places, who, shuffled to their
right position, would bring with them the gra
ces so much wanted to give a zest to high life 1
There are men born to the inheritance and
ministration of a princely fortune, who are on
ly fit to keep livery stable, or drive four-in
hand and there are spiritual teachers, whose
whole lives should he passed in the humblest
class of learners. Bachtlora there are, who
would have been pattern husbands and idoli
zed fathers and husbands and fathers, who
should have gone roaming and growling alone
through life. It is this prevailingjdisorder and
unfitness that makes it so peculiarly delight
ful te 6ee a friend in the right position—that
gives to fitness the effect of harmony.
This felicity of the right position is most
strikingly illustrated by a charming friend of
mine, who, having an innumerable host of
young cousins, is best known by his most com
mon appollative, "Cousin Frank." A dis
cerning girl has tried to fix upon him the so
briquet of Pickwick, but there was a general
outcry against this we were too jealous of the
originality of our friend, to blend bin in any
way with another. Perhaps, we did not all of
us fully appreciate the gentle qualities—the
romantic benevolence—the exquisite gentle
manliness of the Don Quixote of Mr. Dick
ens' creation and besides, the very sound of
Cousin Frank is a key-note to our affec
tions. Cousin Frank" is not too your.g—
and I cannot remember that lie ever was—for
any kind office, and he never will be
Again,11 Cousin Frank" is not in the dilem
ma of one of Mr. Bnlwer's heioes," too hand
some for anything," but were you to question
his beauty in a certain circle, any one of a do
zen fair young creatures would exclaim,

o!d" for any service of humanity. He is not
rich, thank Heaven, for if he were, he would
have cares of his own nor is he poor, and
thank Heaven for that, too, for then he would
have sordid anxieties. If he were too tall, he
might on some occasion (there is universality
in Cousin Frank's occasions) be inconvenient
ly conspicuous and if he were too short, he
might not always command the respect of
those who measure dignity by feet and inches
so he is just right—just as high as all our
hearts.
too
4Cous-
in Frank not handsome!—I wonder then who
is" He certainly has what our English
friends call4* a nice countenance just that
amount of good looks that makes a young la
dy, who has his arm in a company of stran
gers, feel very complacent.
We have said there is an universality in
Cousin Frank's occasions of benevolent use
fulness—we cannot enumerate them. He is
the dear and privileged friend of half-a-dozen
families, and mainspring of three. If there be
a pleasant party on foot, Cousin Frank must
come to make it pleasanter if a dull one, he
must come to make it endurable. If an agree
able dinner is planned. Cousin Frank is the
guest to make sure all its pleasant hilarities
if a heavy one is apprehended, he must do its
dull honors. A perilous winter's journey can
only be encountered with Cousin Frank an
enticing pic-nic would still be nothing without
him. If there be any awkward secret that must
be confided to some one, Cousin Frank is the
chosen recipient he never tells, and if help
be possible, help will come from him.
Cousin Frank is no amateur of music, real
or pretended. I doubt if he could distinguish
an air of Bellini from a sonata of Beethoven.
Yet he goes to more concerts than any man in
town for Crisi or Lamblache would sing in
vain to any of our score of girls, if Cousin
Frank were not there. The lectures—,%* e must
confess it—sparing neither sex nor age, tlmy
have well nigh exhausted even Cousin Frank's
patience, and he was once seen looking grave
and doubtful, when one of his prettiest cous
ins asked hi in to attend her to the Tabernacle.
For himself, Cousin Frank eschews parlies
but if there be a timid womankind among us,
who fears to go alone in a carriage, he is call
ed upon to attend her or if there he a frugal
one who would fain save coach-hire, he is a
gain calleo upon, and Cousin Frank is that
good, that44 dainty spirit," that "does always
come when you do call him." But he is not
merely the prcux chevalier of young and pretty
girls—most bachelors are willing servants of
these he is the visiter of the neglected, the
prop of the old, the cheerer of all. He has
that true chivalry which Chas. Lamb said he
would believe in when he saw the best seat in
a coach given to a fflrlorn old woman.
As to commissions, scarce a mai! arrives
without bringing a flood of them for Consin
Frank. The tide never ebbs. For example,
hy the last:
44
Poor B. is getting deafer and
deafer every day. It is a sad sight to see the
tears in his eyes when he perceives his little
boy's Lips moving without hearing the arcents
that came from them. Ask your Cousin Frank
to lo. k in at the new-fangled instruments for
"he deaf, and send us a report of them.
14
's eyes are getting worse again then
comes a statement of the case, and the unfail
ing conclusion, Ask your Cousin Fjank to
step into billot's and consult him about her
going ,o town." Again We are impatient
to see Stephens' new work ask vour Couisn
Frank to forward it by the first opportunity
your Cousin Frank to send me a couple
dozen of good Port and a half-box of the best
cigars he knows how lo choose both.**
tut we forbear, lest through our
um our readers may he—as no C"11
was—tired of Cousin Frank. Th
place to speak of his blessed parti
mestic tragedies of his friends t^
is cut in to their hearts, and iia
written down in the book of whichPUHj
of life keeps the record. Such a chtraeter as
Cousin Frank is a rare social bleaaiftg, and
its felicity is to have fallen into the rtgllt: pest
tion—upon a family where there is an alarm
ing and most inconvenient preponderance of
woman kind.
Every now and then we have a rumor that
Cousin Frank is about44 to give a party what
was meant for mankind and his cousins
linked jealously on certain of their charming
friends on whom he seems to them to
8l"''e
too benignly. The cloud passes off. The
statute has found its true niche—the picture
its best light. Cousin Frank mast be marri
ed. This would be like giving lo an individ
ual an exclusive right to the sunshine—allow
ing to one family the monopoly of the Croton
water. No: all crowns but the crown matri

Review of May.
LOVE OF NATURB.r-There is
sweetness in the recollection of those hours
which we have spent with friends of a kindred
spirit, amidst the beauties of created nature.
The Christian can alone find that congeniality
in associates, who not only possess a lively
and cultivated sence of the high beauty which
landscape scenery presents to the eye but
who can also see creation's God in every fea
ture of the prospect. The painter can imitate,
the poet describe, and the tourist lalk with ec
stacy of the sublime and beautiful objects
which constitute the scene before him. But
he can only be said to enjoy them aright,
whose talents, taste and affections, are conse
crated to the glory of Him hy whom
44all
things were made, and without whom was not
any thing made that was made." When the
pencil that traces the rich and animated land
scapes of the mountains, lakes, and trees, i*
onided by a grateful heart as well as by a
ekilful hand then the picture becomes no less
an acceptible offering to God, than it is a
source of well directed pleasure to the mind
of man. And when the poet, in harmonious
numbers, makes hill and dale responsive tq
his song, happy is it, if his harp be in unison
with the harp of David, and if he can call on
all created nature to join in one universal cho
rus of gratitude and praise. The Christian
traveller best enjoys 6cenes like these. In ev
ery wonder, he sees the hand that made it
in every landscape, the bounty that adorns it
—in rivers, fields, forests, the Providence that
ministers to the wants of man —in every sur
rounding object, he sees an emblem of his own
spiritual condition —himself a stranger and a
pilgrim, journeying on through a country of
wonders and beauties alternately investiga
ting, admiring, and praising the work of his
Malier, and anticipating a holy and happy
eternity, to be spent in the paridise of God,
where ihe prospects are ever new* and the
landscapes never fade from his sight!
VIEW OF THB ROCKY MOUNTAINS.—In the
forenoon the trail run over a series of moun
tains swelling above one another in long aud
gentle ascents, covered with noble forest3 of
yellow pine, fir, and hemlock. Among these
were frequent glades of rich pasture land
grass green and numerous brooks of pure wa
ter leaping from cliffs, or murmuring among
the shrubbery,»The snow-ball, the wax-plant,
the yellow and black currant, a species of
whortle berry, the service berry, choke berry,
the elder, the shrub maple, and all the beauti
ful flowers that gem a mountain landscape du
ring its short summer?, clothed the ground.—
At twelve o'clock we entered a deep ravine,
at the bottom of which ran a brook of clear
spring water, and dined on its bank. A di-lt
of rich cocoa, mush and sugar, and dried buff
alo tongue, on the fresh grass hy a cool rivu
let, on the wild mountains of Oregon Na
ture stretched her bare and mighty arwiround
us! The mountain hid the lower sky and
walled out the lower world We looked up
on the beautiful heights of the Blue Mountains
and ate amid the spring blossoms, its singing
pines and holy battlements, ten thousand feet
above the seas. In the afternoon we continu
ed to ascend vast rolls lifted themselves over
one another in a northerly direction higher,
till in the distance their tops mingled with the
blue of the sky.—Farnhatn's Travels.
FEMALE DELICACY.—Above every other fea
ture which adorns the female character, deli
cacy stands foremost within the province ot
good tas'e. Not that delicacy which is per
petually in quest of something to be ashamed
of, which makes merit blush, and simpers at
the false construction its own ingenuity has
put upon an innocent remark this spurious
kind of delicacy is as far removed from good
taste as
from good feelingand good sense buttbe
high minded delicacy which maintains its pure
and undeviating walk alike amongst women
as in the society of men, which shrinks from
no necessary duty, and can speak, when re
quired, with seriousness and kindness, of
things at which it would he ashamed to smiie
or to blush that delicacy which knows how
to confer a benefit without wounding the feel
ings of another, and which understands also
how and when to receive one that delicacy,
which can give alms without display, and ad
vice without assumption and which pains not
the most humblo or susceptible betno in crea
tion.
RETORT COOKTKOUS.—The
Rttriington
Free Press tells the following story of
Fid ward Everett, our present minister to
England. A few years ago he delivered
an oration before the Phi Beta Kappa So
ciety, at Cambridge, ai their annual cele
bration, and after the public exercises
were over they had a dinner, as is
usual.on
such occasions. Judge Story, who pre
sided at the table, is said to hive proposed
the following sentiment, after the cloth
was removed, in comjpliinent to the ora
tor: V
•The Oratdf of the Day—Applause
follows the footsteps of taoio _whefe*fcer
it (Everett) goes."
This directed the attention of the whole
company to Mr. Everett, who immediate
ly arose and made the following very hap%
py retort:

Greate»t Discovery of the Jlge.
ill IS term may be justly applied to the discov
ery of compounding medicines with the best
double refined loaf sugar in such manner that chil
dren and adults may now eat medicine with as much
pleasure as they do the best confectionary.
For this discovery we are indebted to A Sherman,
D, of the city of New York, who has been a
regular practitioner of medicine in that city for the
last ten years, and also a member of the New York
Medical society.
The Doctor, after devoting his attention for a long
time tv the subject, about three years since offered
his invention to the public under the name of
SHERMAN'S MEDICATED LOZENGES,
Since which time they have gained a celebritv for
the cure of different complaints for which they are
recommended, unprecedented in the history of any
other medicine—they consist of
SHERMAN'S COUGH LOZENGES,
Which are the most certain and effectual remedy for
coughs, colds, consumptions, whooping cough, asth
mas, tightness of the lungs and chest, ever offered
to the public.
SHERMAF'S WORM LOZENGES,
Are the only infallib!e worm medicine ever discover
ed. They have l»een used in hundreds of thousands
of cases, and never known to fail. The medical
faculty recommend them in preference to all other
