Should this, my first ofibring be accepted, V thers more deserving the name of poetry may follow if deuired: Where Is my Marle. WVhere is my lov'd one-where is she, Who once, was all the world to me ? Where is my Mary, has she flown And left her 6uillaume all alone 1 Ah I yet, thour't gone, alas ! and I Am left to wither, droop and die; To weep. in vain, those burning tears, For one I've lov'd from childhood's years. 'Tin hard to hide an aching heart Beneath a smile when forc'el to part From love, from hope-we then undone, Can nevermore say "w we are one." Bt4 none shall ever hear my sighs, Or see the tears that dim my eyes; My grief I'll hide, while here I dwell My sweetest bary, fare thee well. When.the little birdies sweetly sing Their merriest notes in joyous spring, Sweet roses will blow And violets bloom, And blue-bells grow O'er affection's tomb. CAsDARPA. March 8thk4 Do. AMnRICiANs IN PAars.-A Paris let ter of the 7th ult., says: The first pre sentation of Americans to Louis Na poleon, since he has been Emperor, and to Mrs. Bonaparte, since she has been Enpress, took place at the Tuileries, on Thursday night. About sixty Am. mericans and seventy English were in troduced to their Majesties. The cere mony is briefly this: The gentleme. and ladies to be esented form double line, t au ahnhu 8I were to dance a.Virginia Reel. Spacee - no0gh'is left between for their fajcs ties to pass easily. The Americans had one half' of the presentation room, and the English the other. The practice of the Emperor would seemn to be to address some remark to about every third person, as the names of the presentees are mentioned to him, those of the ladies by their ambassadress, and those of the gentlemen by their ambassador. The American portion of the ceremony was easy, graceful and highly successful; their Majesties were gracious in the extreme. Lord Cowl ey made a boteh of the English intro ductions; and an incensed Lord was heard to remark, "Those Americans al ways do everything better thani any one else; we eut no figure at all next to them."~ Tfhe Emperor looked well; better, indeed, more at ease, more desirous of pleasing, than I have ev er before seen him. The Empress wore white flowers, both in her hair, anid scattered in tasteful profusion over her dress. She had a necklnce of large peal-s around her neck, but no't a single diami ond. The American ladies that had put on all their foleandas, to comnpete with her Majesty, shone in undiamed brilliancy. WVe made a very striking display. I doubt whether thirty hand somer women were ever collected on an occaision of the kind. More thani once the Emperor seemed to single out a lady of more thans ordinary beau ty, and call the Empress's attention to her. After the presentation there was dancing and a supper. Their Majesti es .waltzed together, and we-re onc-e or twice bumped in a most unseemly manner by Americans who had grown dizzy, and had lost the power of properly guiding their footsteps. It was past one when their Majesties re tired. The festivities continued, how ever, after their departure, and when the olock struck three the company had not yet left. PADDLN Youa Own Caxo.-Young man! You must paddle y-our own canoe! It is on the whole better that you should! See that young man who getsi into a canoe, bought with the mo ney of hi. parents or his friends. When the vessel is launebed, he mst have it paddled by hiaed hands, while ho lolls back and perhaps sees nothing but an unsubstantial shadow of him. aelf ini the smooth waters. By and by the canoe, through carelessness and preumtuous steering, is dashed among the rapids, and he goes down. Should he come up again, he finds that he is abandoned by all, and that lhe has made a wreck where he might have made a fortune. Young man or woman! paddle your own canoe! Even if you are f~av-rd with parents, or friends who can give you one, be sure you earn it by the worthiness of your lives. In high puro ses, in noble resolves, in generous d ,in purity and virtuous endur ance and blameless conversation, let your endeavors to paddle your own canoe be sieen by all. Pull away! If against the rapids, have another ready. If you have but one, pull with the stump of the old onel Dort't relax one effort. One stroke lost, and it may be the fatal onel Pull away! Your canoe if you have built It, like your friend, of the right material in your.character,, will hold out as long as you yourself will. Pull away! And before long you may find your self in as fair a heaven as the man that 'paddles his own canoe.' Tux Timias IN AUSTRALIA.-A New Yorker upon his arrival at Melbourne, Australia, writes to the Post, as fol lows : The streets are perfectly crowded with people, every house cramed as full as itcan be. There is at present a law in force prohibiting persons from erecting anything in the shape of a house, within a certain distance from the city, unless bnilt ofeither brick or stone; and as mechanics cannot be got at any price, there are few or no houses in course of erection, and consequently there is not house accommodation for one-half of the people. All around the city, you may see thousands and thousands living under tents, vnd in many instances they pitch them right in the street. I have been fortunate enough to get lodgings at ?2 per week, in a small room with four others ; but many pay 2s. Gd. sterling for sleeping in the hall of the same house. HG11 PRICES. I am three days in Melbourne, and since my arrival flour has risen from ?45 to ?50 per ton; and it is the gen eral impression here, that it will double this amount before long. Lum ber too is almost impossible to be got at any price, what little there is has been selling at an enormous price. There is no doubt but flour and dressed lumber will pay here, as long as there is gold found in the country. Emigrants are flocking here, at the rate of about four thousand a week that is, at present; but from advices from England we may expect almost double that amount in future. There are less than fifteen ships, full of pas. sengers, below, including six hun dred troops sent out from England. Every one here looks to the United States for flour, and should they be disappointed, the consequences must be dreadful. All agricultural pursuits are totally at a stand, while thou sands and thousands are flocking here every day. Australia never expor ted much flour-they say they could always consume the greater part of their own produce in breadstuffs; and now that the population is increasing at such a fearfbl ratio, and the land ly ing uutilled, I think there is little chance of the price decreasing until the gold fever is over. Any person that will send flour, dressed lumber, or ev e4, such as were shipped eiars nce % s. country fur sey (s9 say the folks here, and so I think,) in a very short time. I "am off to the mines to-morrow morning. I go to a place called tihe "Ovens," newly discovered, where th.' gold has been found in great abun dance, and flour selling at one hun dred andpfity pounds sterling per ton. It is ab~out one hundred and eighty miles from Melbourne, anid I intend to walk up; and as cartage to there is on' one hundred pounds sterling per ton, I shall only carry what's on my back. I start with two others, one of them a nephew of Charles O'Conor, the lawyer of your city. If I am fbrt unate enough to be able to get a supply of bread to main tuin life, you shall hear from me again, and have a full account of my mining experience, anid also of tihe quantity of gold in the colony, a. 11. x.

A can idate of imposing pretensions for that ignity presents himself in "Carl Ben. n," otherwise Mr. Charles Attor risted, author of "Five Years in an nglish University," and other atheti. i compositions. This pleasant young entleman, having devoted time en ugh to ma'king Latin verses, has he un the serious business of life which e evidently takes to be the study of" ups, wines, currieles, clothes and. pera glasses. Of course Paris is the uliy place for the prosecution of such4 nportant researches, and accordingly e has taken up his residence there at lumiero 20, Rue Barb.e:de Jouay." ~romi this enchanting pieda-terre he has itely written a long letter for the dn ectation of all Ameriean dandies, -hich the Hlome Journial publishes, lear him on the subject of gloves: " Gloves have deteriorated .yery inch in Paris of late.

Beau Brummell once told a lady at consult him as to the expense of ressing her son who was just "coming it" in society, that "with strict econo. ty it could be done for ?800 a year." ut the Beau never alluded to the nailness of his hand or the profita eness of his custom. Carl Benson lys his bills, perhaps, and considers mnself licensed to speak upon the lat r point freely. That he has not a ad hand" must be a gratifying piece information to the public. But hat would his old grandfather, Johmn icob Astor, have said to $400 peran um for a glove bill?
