For an actual belle and aposidlil bride:
But the miracle erawd when she turned iniide out,
Aud the truth Citmeto liht, and the dry (-nods beside;
Wliii h.iu rpite of collector aud the custom -hoUM sentry
Haduutered tlie port wi:hout any entry.
Aud yet, tbou-h scarce thrremonths hare paa-d dioea

Hii- Mine MisMcHinicr.of Madi-on Aiuare,
1 i.e ast time we met. was in utt r dirpair

Normxi; t un! Now, as thin ica true ditty,
I do not a.w rt this, you know.ifi between us
That 'he n in a-tateof absolute nudity.
Like IVwcr'u J reek lare or the Mtliei Venofi:
Hut I do ni'-an to fay, I hare beard ber declare,
When, at id aaue moment, she bad on a dreft
Whicb ct.rt fire huntlred dullars and not a WDtleM,
Aud jewelry worth ten times more, I should guesn.
That he bad not a thing in the wide world to wear!
I should mention ju-4 here, that out of MLs Flora's
Two hundred and fifty or ixty adon in,
I ba.l jast been Mlect-d as he who rdiouM throw all
The rt tt in the shade, by the gracious bestowal
On mym'T. aftT twentyor thirty rejections,
'f the- fos-il remains which roe called -her affeetkms,
And that rather docayed, but well-known work of art,
W tk h Flora fM-r.lat.-d In atyJinrr tr hMrt.
So we were eiig(ed. Our troth had been pllphted,
Not by moctilf am or trlam, by fountain or firore,
ltut In a front parlor, mwt brilliantly libt-d.
Beneath tlie ;af-&xturea we n Iiipcml our lore.
Hi-bout any rem. nee. or raptures, or ehrbs,
Without any tear in ML-i flora' J blue eyes.
Or t-lu.'h'-is or transorts,ir such eilly arUona,
It Ki' one of the ijuretet l'ioncg traufactions
With a Tery small fprinklin of rtentiinent, if any,
And a r- ry larje d:amiHl iuipirtt-d ty TilLtny.
u her Tirjrinai lij-a where I printed a kiss,
Mi- ni lainied in a surt of parcutlit-(is,
Ant by way of puttiuz me ijuite at my ease,
You ku' w I'm to fHtlka as nnx-h an I please,
A n 1 flirt wb -n I like now stop, tion't you speak
Aud too muot n' t come hre more than twice in a week,
or talk to me either nt party or hall,
lint always le ready to com1 when I call,
io don't prose tome about b-anty and ctuff,
If we doii'l break this off. there will be time enough
F t tha: srt of thin ; but the bargain must be
Tl1.1t, a. I' ns; as I cbo-j 1 am perfectly free,
For thin in a rtof entrapment, you fee,
W Id' h in binding on yon but not binding on me.w
W ill, having thu. wooed Mi-s McFIimsey and gained her.
With the silks, crinolines, ani hoops that contained ber,
I had. as I tlmuht, a coutiu ut remainder
At 1 at iu the property, and the hcl ri-ht
To appear asltf epcort by itayand by niht.
Ami it b inp the week of the STrcntr's grand ball
Tln ir cards bad been out a fortniirht or ao,
And ct all the Avenue on the tip-toe
I rousider"! it only nir duty to call,
And M' if Misfi Flora intended to fro.
I found her an ladies an' apt to be found,
U ben ho time intervening betweeu the first sound
Of ihc lell and the Tisitor'a entry is rhorter
Thnn uual 1 fonnd ; I won't pay I eaucht her
Int'-nton the pier rlfesR. undoubtnlly mianin
.-'oseeifperhaj sit didn't nee-l clcntiiuj.
ihe t n rued as I entered "W hy, Harry, yon sinner,
I thought that you went to the FMsnci's to dinnfr:"
'So I did," I n-plie-l, "but the dinner is swallowed,
And digested, I trust, for 'tis bow nine or more.
0 l-eirit: relieved from that duty. I followed
Inclination, whirb led m. you see, to your door.
Atid now will your ladyship so condescend
As jut to inform me ifyou intend
Your beauty, and graces, and presenee to lend,
(All wbich, when I own, 1 hope no one will borrow)
To the STt cKt r'awhoM party, you know, U to morrow T"
The fair Flora looked ap with a pitiful air,
And answered juite promptly, "Why, Harry mom ekrrt
I t-hould like above all thinj-s tn o with you there;
Hut really and truly I've nothing to wear."
Nothing to wear! go just as yon are;
Wear the drej you have on, and you'll be by far,
I engage, the most bright and particular star
On the Stuck up horizon" I stopped, for her eye,
Notwithstanding this delicate onset of flattery,
Opened on me at once a most terrible battery
Of scorn and amaiement. She made no reply,
But gave a slight turn to the end of her nose
(That pare Grecian feature,) as much as to fay,
ki iUni that any nrteman ohoald nuppoM
That a laily would go to a ball in the rlotbca,
No matter how fine, thatube wnni every day !"
So I Ti-Dtunil again MWear yoar crimson brocaa,n
(Swnil turn up or none) "That'e too dark by aphaile."
-Vour Moe Filk" .That, too heary." Tour pink"
-TIiat ti licht."
"Wear talteover saUn" "I can't endure white."
"Your rope-colored, then, tbe beat of the batch"
"I haven't a thread of point laee to match."
Your brown moirtmntiqm" "Yet, look like a Quaker."
"The peart-colored" MI woald, but that plaguey dreas-
Has had it a week" "Then that exquiaita lilac,
In which yon would melt the heart af a Shylock."
(lli ru the noee took attain in the aame elevation.)

The Naturalized vote in the U. S. is
probably 400,000, and that vote not only
elected Pierce in 1S52, but Buchanan in
IS 50. Could the votes be traced from the
box to tho voter in every case, our position
we doubt not could be still more clearly
verified, and the proof given that three
fourths if not nine-tenths of the uneducated
adults, vote modern Democracy. A few
specimens, by way of illustration, must
suffice.

We will not aggravate the case by show
ing that Democratic Xctc Jersey alone has
over 3,000 more ignorant na'iW,black aud
white, than ALL tlte six Republican Xcw
England States together ! We will not
compare Maine, Vcrmont,or Massachusetts,
with Pennsylvania, in respect to uniform
education. It is unfortunate for our State
that the diversity of races has caused the
failure- to thoroughly educate tho masses ;
and the disparity is an occasion for regret
more than for censure. A population half
German and half English can not harmo

There is no class of citizens generally j
so well and thoroughly educated, so little ,

inclined to avoid merely political contests, ,
as ministers of the Gospel. And yet, ;
throughout the free States certainly, no
class of citizens are so uniformly identified
with the Republican party, as the clergy-;
men. Tbe memory of every man will as-'.
sure him that the Black Democracy's ha-
trcd of preachers of God's Word, is not
without cause. The Catholic and Mormon i
teachers, it is true, were, invariably with 1
the Black Democracy, and occasionally a
