She liath gone, the gorgeous summer Yet on rath, and wood, and hill, The traces of her rosy feet Are lingering brightly still; And, as the sunlight paling On evening leaves its flash, . In the bhadowy arms of autumn Still we revel in her bluh. Art thou gone, oh! lovely summer? ' I am wandering where the trees, The grand high priests of nature, Swing their censors to the breeze; Swing perfumes on the hazy air While through the arches dim Come, far, and sweet and solemnly, Their murmured, mystic hymn. I am wandering through the forests, Through the summer woods butlo! There droops and sways a yellow Hag, A mid the greeu beach bough. And from the tufts" of waving feru Spring shafts of only gold, And the lone grass, 'plaiueth whispering! j When the ribing winds are bold. And the balm flower by the streamlet, , The thistle down that sails, A fair craft o'er mount and mead Urged on by mimic gales. The golden rods bright glancing. Where calm 8nd sunny light Falls trickling through the woven leaves, These whisper of thy flight. Alas! alas! for summer gone, , Alas! when death his snow Shall heap upon her rosy lips And on her rafliant brow! Alas! alas! for darker days " "When Nature, pale with dread, Shall stand a stricken Niobe, Alone amid her dead. THE POLITICS 0FTHE TELEGRAPH.

Dismounting, he walked in, bid good morning to the occupants of the cabin, an old gentleman and his help-mate, and the follow, ing conversation ensued: Agent. "Would vou like to subscribe for a Zanesville paper, sir? ' ; "in? ting. " ' ' 'Whag! Aw a with it! Tak it oot of my house! But stop, my gude mon, and Bit down can you tell me anything aboon this lightning rod? an' how ye get the news of fra it?' 'It is done by electricity, or magnetism, witn the use of signs and machinery ,'" replied the v is itor, with a smile. "Hoot! D ve smile? broke in the old lady, who, resting her chin upon her hands, had been closely watching our fiiend. "D'ye smile at this takin awa o the power o the A mighty: Is it Whag or Dimmecrat, this lightning rod?" "Oh! it is a Whig enterprise, altogether," re plied the visitor; "the Democrats have nothing to do with it. "Has Tom Corwin anything to do w i it?" "Yes, he is at the bottom of it." "Oh dear!'' the old lady ejaculated; "these Whags will destroy the world yet, wi' their stealin' the power o' the A'mighty," and, as our friend walked towards the lence, he could still hear the mournful exclamations of the ex ercised woman. i,ancsvuit courier.
