I stKP-r, anJ o'er my wandering tenses came
A scene of childhood, beautiful and bright ;
- Methought I rushed again with joyous bound
To groet the coming of the new-born day,
And taste her mnrry-scentod otfroue breath.
Fair nature spread a rich and boundless store
To charm my sight ; the rainbow-tinted flower
Unclosed her virgin beauty to the sun,
Courting his truant smiles and golden beams ;
And wild-beos tarried on their lazy flights
To steal with murmured song the luscious spoil:
Again I locked upon the smiling wave,
And traced its fairy gambols on the deep,
Leaping to wanton mu-ic of the breeze.
Wearied at length, methought I found my rest
In the soft haven of a mother's arms:
Loving and loved, I basked within the gaze
Of ever.watchful eye, till misty gleams
Stole o'er my brow, and pictured to my view
Those visions of a fur and distant land
That glitter in an angel-revelry.
Could I but taste that blissful dream again,
Thoughtless of change, and reckless of the storm,
That slumbers in the cloud of woo to come !

They are worthy of the beat days of Ron but

I've wandered cast, I've wandered west,
Through mony a weary way,
But never, never can f rget

But blacker fa' awaits (he heart
Where first fond luve grows cule.
O dear, dear Jcanie Morrison,
The thochts o' bygane years

And sair and sick I pine
A Mem'ry idly summons up

Oh, mornin' life ! Oil ! morniu' !vc !
Oh, lichtsome days and lang,
When hinnied hopes around our hearts,

O mind ye, lute, hjw aft we left

damaged seveial buildings and, accoiding to the

The trial of Louis Napoleon Mill not commence
until the 1st Oct. The meeting of the 15th will
be for the purpose of reading the accusation, but
the prisoners will not be brought forward till the
day above numrd. Gen. Excel mans has refused to
be present at ihe trial. Our correspondent tells us
that Prince Louis Napoleon is greatly annoyed by
two valuable cameos and (wo picture, family gifts,
which he valued most highly, having been sold at
auction iu London. In giv'ng an order for the sale
of his furniture, he unfoitunitely neglected to re
serve the ar icles iu question, and the whole was
sold in strict performance of the terms of his letter.
The unfortunate young mail is much cast down al
the loss of those family treasures, and he thinks
more of them than that of the critical siiuution in
which he is placed.

I entreat you to receive the following decima
tion :
I am aware that a recourse to publiiity isst once
singular and improper, but when a fjther, afflicted
aged, ill, and an exile, cannot olhei wise assist his
unfortunate son, such a recourse can l but appro
ved by all those who have a father's heart.
Convinced that my son my only rtmaining son
ia the victim of an infamous intrigue, and has
been seduced by vile flatterers, false friends, anJ
perhaps insidious advice, I cannot remain silen
wiihout a breach of duly, and without exposing
myself to the most bitter regrets.
I declare then, that my son Louis Napoleon has
for the third time, fallen into a flighlful snure, into
a horrible, premeditated snare, since a man, n t en.
Urely void of intelligence and good sense, could lie
ver have of his own accord ru-hed headlong iut
such a precipice. If guilty, surely the most truly
guilty are those by whom he has been urged on
and misled.
I moreover declare with horror, that the insult
inflicted on my son, by confining him in the prison
of an infamous assassin, is a 'nonstrous, ur French
piece of cruelly ; that it is an outrage as vile as it is

A grand reform banquet was given a; Chatdlun,

We have received by the Aden, arrived at Ply
mouth, a Canton Press of the 25th of April. Tho
following are tho only pieces of intelligence which
contains :
Thrre is a rumor come from Canton to the ef
fect that it is iho intention of Governor Lin, in case
the English should attack the Bogue, to destroy
the suburbs of Canton, and to put the city itself in
atate of defence The city of Canton is surroun led
iy a wull ten feet high, with small turrets at short
and equal distance, without ditches or any other
works of defence, in fact, it is, to European art, an
open town. The suburbs of Canton contains a
opulution probably larger than'that enclosed with
in the walls, by far the most important, and the
most industrious portion if the inhabitants. All
the foreign trade, and the manufactories, the ware
houses, &c, that supply it, aie in the subuibs, and
we can therefore give but little credit lo a rumor
according to which one half of an immense popu
ution is to be sacrificed iu order to incrcjse the vc
ry doubtful safety of ihe rei-t.
An edict has been issued by the Canton autliori
ties regnrding the new port regulation, according
to which no s.iip is ullowed to enter tho Itogu
wiihout having previously stnt her pijers to Can
ton, and received thence the necessary permission
to proceed to Wnmpon. The new law cannot fail
to tie in some degree embarrassing to newly arrived
ships, to which loss of time is a mailer of tho ut
most importance. We hear that several veisrl.
alely arrived from Manilla are now waiting cut-
side for their permission from Canton to enter the
We have happily nothing to record. The dread
ed commissioner from Cunton has arrived, and the
only trouble occasioned by the Mandarins, is their
delaying the entrance of ships under vsrions pre
tences. Most of the individuals who during the
late disturbances have been seized, of whom the
number is immense, are promised their freedom on
the payment of a sum of moi.ey.
The private ad vie a by the Aden state that the
consignees of the Armrican vessels remaining at
Canton, had given notice that they would not bring
down any more tea for transshipment ; they would,
they added, only retnain to complete the rarg vs of
their vessels, mid then wind up their ufl'airs.
The British ships were lo. din Ic is under the
Danish flag. Freights ranged from 6 to 8 per
ton ; in some instances X'J had been paid.
The exorts of tea fiom China to Great Britain
during the year, were variously estiuia.ed al fiom
25,000,000 lbs. to 30,000,000 lbs.
The following extraordinary narrative is given
in a recent letter from Milan :
"A priest, on returning a few nights ago from
vi-iting a sick person in the reentry near Pitj.iti,
perceived lights in the windows of a farmhouse be
longing tu a friend, and, supposing thai there was
a fumily nueiing, entered with the intention of pir-
tuking of their festivity. On reaching the first
floor, he found the daughter of the house suspend
ed from beam in the ceiling. He immediately
cut her down, and look means to restore her. Mie
recovered her senses, but before she coul l speak she
urged him by her gestures lo go into an adjoining
room. Here he found the father and the moth, r
lntli dead, having been evidently murdered. On
returning to the poor girl, who was about 15, she
had recovered her voice, and told him that ihe house
had been entered by five men, one of whom was
the priest's own servant, who had first killed her
father and mother, then bung her, and afterwards
docamied with all ihe plate, jewels, and money.
Having pl icod the resuscitated gitl in good hand
the piiist went home. His servant cane to him
as usual, to assist bim in undressing, but he desir. d
the man to gi to the cellai, and bring up a bottle
of wine, as he was fatigued and ihiMy. The ser
vant went down, and the priest, stealing gently af
ter bim, succeeded in locking hint in. lie then
listened lo the magistrate of tho place, who, on
hearing his tale, sent some officers to his house,
where they entered the cellar, and seized the servant
and two of the four accomplices, but the remaining
two effected their escape. The whole of the booty
was also found in the cellar.

The embassador of Austria was permitted in his

too flattering. I had reckoned on him to assist mo
in saving the peace of the world, but now I trust
but in the sword of France."
The scene made a deep impression on ut I pre
sent at the audience. M. Rothschild was presmt
in his quality as Austriun Consul. Uneasy at the
King's language he went to the Queen and ex-
prcsscJ his astonishment at the King's irritation
and begged her to intervene to bring his nv-jc-ty

By eight o'clock our borough literally presented

from Eaglo Village had but barely room to pass
through the borough. The arrival of the steamboat

crowd were passing out sixth street to the encamp

length, liegari to enter tho town on state street.
The impassable throng filled the public sqaare and
the whole leng'h of s'xth street to the euCMnpment,
compelled ibis procession to diverge to frcneh street
nearly to the lake, to cross from frcneh over state
