O my thoughts tire away where my infancy flew, Near the creen mossy bank where the butter cups grew, Where the bright silver fountain eternally played First laughing in sunshine then singing in shade. There oft in my childhood I've wandered in play, Flinging up the cool drops in a shower nf spray, Till my small naked feet were al! bathed in bright dew, As I played on the bank where the btitter-cnps grew. How softly that green bank sloped down from the hill, To the spot where the fountain grew suddenly still How cool was the shadow the long branches gave, As they hung from the willow and dipped in the wa''e ! And then each pa!e lilly that slept on the stream Rose nnd fell with the wave ns if stirred by a dream, W title n.y home m.U the v.ne-leaves rose sou on j my liiew, As I played on the bank where the butter-cups grew. The beautiful things how I watched them unfold, Till they lifted their delicate vases of gold, O, never a spot since those days have I seen With leaves of sin h freshness, and flowers ol such sheen, How glad was my spirit '. for then there was nought, To burthen its wings, save somebeatitiful thought Breaking up from its depths with each w ild wind that blew O'er the green mossy bank where the butter cups giew. The paths 1 have trod I would quickly retrace, Could 1 win ba.'k the gladness that looked from my lace, As 1 coohd my warm lip in the fountain I love, With a spirit ns pure as the wing of a dove, CoM 1 ndor again where my forehead was fctarr'd -jVith the beauty that dwelt in my bosom un armed And calm as a child, in the starlight and dew Fall asleep on the bank where the butter-cups ! grew. i llobbrrie of I' u bile I'mit tlonarlr In .Mrs. I lci. Thp Washington correspondent of the New J York Commercial Advertiser intimates that the ; frequent robbery of Auiericun Minibters is done ! by the agents. He says : ' ... , . -ii i were more amiiMoiI than surnriseil hen; i t thu story that Mr. IMiot, the British charge ! ,rufl:iires. was robbed on his way to Mexico r , . r,i. ....i. ..vllf v .. tn; Alvnil liium I a l ,t,, ',J i I i lie finictiontries are of old dte and always of a i mysterious chnracter.

The object of hours. When we reflect that this stream of the robbers is to get possession, for the tiovern- , gas has, unabated, flowed up for nearly two ment, of the private papers, political objects and ' months, what must be thought of the quantity instructions of the functionary, and the tiovern- ) and facility of manufacturing it below ! In the iiieiil invariably makes re.-titiitiou of the money ; springs hard by, and in the other wells, (with and valuables taken by the robbers, if they uu- ! perhaps the exception of that of one or t woo warily, or of necessity, take them.

The Government immediately offered him ample amends, but his papers wero not re turned. When Mr. Shannon went out, as Min ister, he was warned that lie would be robbed between Vera Cruz und Mexico, and advised to t.ko no money witli him, but lo procure a bill, as can always be done, at Vera Crur., on Mexi co. Hi' did so, ii ml was duly robbed. The Go vernment offered its condolence, and tendered indemnification ton lire amount. When Mr. Cushing passed through Mexico, on his return from ('hum, he was stopped by a troop of half military, hull sivnge looking fel lows, w ho demanded his keys, &c. They over hauled every tiling. His trunks with specie and witli public papers were examined and lock ed tip ngnin. A box with papers was taken, and he was then told to proceed. Commodore Porter, when they attempt pd to rob him in his return from Mexico, biung bad some difficulties with thai Government, und be ing in no humor for tho operation, w heeled his horse upon the captain of the troopand shot him dead, whereupon the rest took to flight. Case have been known wherein men of im portance have been robbed, according to order, and upon their arrival al Mexico, complained of their largo losses, and the Government, though well knowing that the Iom wae trifling, have restored the sum claimed. If the Go vernment wishes to gains man, who has lost. but twenty doubloons, they say you must have lost sixteen hundred d.iubloons, ant it lie assents, they pay dim accordingly. I do not intimate that this haa been the cse with any of tur functionaries." Navlnral Gaa. We arp indphted to the Kanawha (Va.)

Rut the most remarkable phennmeni n in th' way of natural gas here, nod we have nodouh', in the whole world, is that at the works of Messrs.

They say that when the Great Spirit made, he also made three men, all of whom were fair complexioned ; and that after making them, he led them to the margin of a small l ike und bade them lay therein and wash. One immediately obeyed, and came from the wu'er purer and fair er than beforo ; the second hesitated a moment, during which tune the water, agitated by the first, had becn.ue slightly mudded, ami when ho had bathed lie came up copper-colored ; the third did not leap into till the water became black with mud, and he came out w ith his own color. Then thn Great Spirit laid before them three packages of bark, and madelhem choose and out nf pity for his misfortune in color, gave tho black man the first choice, lie too!; each of tho packages and having felt the weight chose the heaviest ; the copper-colored one then chose the second heaviest, ami tho white inun the lightest. When the packagea were open ed, the first waa found, lo contain spades, hoe and all the iinp'.oiueuta of lubor ; the second en wrapped htint .ng and fishing and warlike appa ratus ; the third guve to the white man, pens, ink und paper the engine of the mind the ineana of mutual mental improvement the so cial link of humanity the foundation of the white man' superiority.

We hive been looking over with great interest, "Counsels to Young men," by the venerable Dr. Nott, published by the Harpers; n small volume with which every youth ought to be familiar. The following sen timents cannot fail to commend themselves to the conscience and heart : Truth and justice are immutable nnd eternal principles always sacred nnd always applica ble. In no circumstances, however urgent, no crisis, however awful, can there be an oburra tion from the one, or a dereliction of the other, without sin. With respect to everything else, be nccomrnoihiting ; but here, be unyield ing Bnd invincible. Rather carry your integri ty to the dungeon or tho sraflobl, than receive in exchange for it liberty nnd life. Should you ever be calhd to make your selection between these extremes, do not hesitate. It is belter prematurely to be sent to heaven in honor, than, having lingered on the earth, tit last lo sink to hell in infamy. In every situation, a dishonest man is detestable, and a liar is still more so. Truth is one of the fairest attributes of the Deity. It is the b military which separates vice from virtue ; the line which divides hea ven from hell. It is. the chain w Inch binds the man ol integrity to the throne of God ; and, like the God to w hose throne it hinds him, till this chain is dissolved his word may be r lied on. Suspended on this, vour property, yrur reputa tion, your life are sale. Ilu against the inalicp nf a liar there is no security. He can bo bound by nothing. His soul is already repulsed to an immeasurable distance from that Divinity,' a sense of whose presence is the security of vir tue. He has sundered the last ofthnse moral ligaments which bind a mortal to his duty. And having done so, through the extended region of fraud and falsehood, without n bond to check or limit to confine him, he ranges the dreaded enemy of innocence whose lips pollute even truth itself ns it passes thro' them, nnd w bosp breath blasts, and soils, and poisons as it touches.

"It is hard, I think, Mr. Caudle, that I can't leave home for a day or two, but the house must be turned into a tavern ; a tavern ! a pot- Iioure ! Yes, I thought you were very anxious that I should go ; tho't you wanted to get rid of me for something, or you would not have in sisted on my slaying at dear mother's nil night.

"I'm sure the house will not lie sweet for a month. All the rtirtains are poisoned with smoke; and what's more, the fi'thiest smoke I ever knew. Takr 'cm down thin ! Yes, it's all very well for you to say, take 'em down ; but they were only cleaned and put up a month ago ; but a careful wile's lost upon you, Mr. Caudle. You onoht to have married somebody who'd have let your house go to wreck nnd ru in, as I will for the future. People who don't cnip for their families are better than those who do ; I've long found out that. "And w hat a condition tiie carpet's in !

If you want to have a few friends, why could'nt you invile 'em when your wife's at home, like any other man 1 not have 'em sneaking in, like a set of housebreakers, directly a woman turns her buck.

Vaccination. A late number of the I on don Lancet has the following on the subject of vacpitintion : ''Phe general conclusions drawn by Dr. pit Z'ns, of Stockholm, from his observations ii Sweden are these : The protection afforded bv vaccination, from tho close of the second year of life, against the contagion of the variolous poison, usually Insts unimpaired to the end of the thirteenth year or so , after this periol it begins to lose itsrfl.'ct, and grodually becomes more and more uncertain to the twentieth or twenty-first year of life. Tor the next four or five years the disposition to the small pox seem almost to hnve recovered its originnl int-'gr ty ; and this state of liability continues unimpaired up to Ihe see of forty years or so. At about this epoch of life it begins to approach nearer and nearer to the limits of existence which it reaches, in the majority of cases, about th fif tieth year the period when the general revo lution of the human body commences to t.l.o place." Mendimi a Tree. It is well known that i tree, when injured, can be completely restored by agricultural surgery. The editor of the Brooklyn Advertiser saw nt Mr. Frost's, New ton, L. I., a large apple tree, that had the baric eaten all round by the mice some years ago, end of course would have died, without some extra j pains to save it. Mr. Frost set a dozen of scums in the tree, one end in the green bark and wood below, and the other above the wound. They all took nt both ends nnd grew well, excepting one, which took only at tho bottom, and thus forming a little tree by itself.
