The song of neglected Tannahiit was to his Jessie both s glory and a curse ; while it hrmight her into notice and enhanced her beauty, it laid the foundation of her final destruction. Popularity is a danger ous elevation, whether tin- object of i t lie a pea sant or a prince ; temptations crowd around it, and snares are laid on every hand. •• Who would be eminent, said a distinguished child of populari ty, ‘ if they knew the peril, the madness, and distraction of mind to which the creature of the popular breath is exposed ?” When the poet heard of the fate of his beloved Jessie, his heart almost hurst with mental agony, and, working himself into the enthusiastic frenzy of inspiration, poured forih a torrent of song more glowing and energelc than ever before dropped in burning accents from his tonguer It is to he lamented, that in a fit of disgust, ho afterwards destroyed thoye poetic records of his passsiun and his resentment. Ere three years had revolved their triple circuit after Jpssie left her father’s home, site was a changed woman. Her paramour had forsaken her. Site was destitute in her splendid habitation. Her blue eyes looked pitiful on nil things around her; the oval cheeks were indented by the hand of misery, and the face and person presented the picture of an unhappy, hut amiable being. How changed was the fimire clothed in silk, which moved on the hanks of'the Forth, from the happy, lively gir| in Dumblane, dressed in the rustic garb of a peasant! But this is a subject too painful to dwell on : let us hasten to the catastrophe. It was on an afternoon in July, a beautiful, sunny afternoon—the air was calm and pure. I lie twin islands of the Forth, like vast emeralds set in a lake of silver, rose splendidly over the shining water, which now and then gurgled and mantled round their bases.— Fifeshiro was spread forth like a map, her bun dreds of inland villages and cots tranquilly stepp ing in the sunshine. The din of the artisan’s hammers in Kirkaldy ami Queensferry stnote the still air ; and Domfermlim-’s aproned inhabitants scattered forth their whitened weba beneath the noontide sun. On the opposite shore, Leith dis gorged her black smoke, which rolled slowly in volumes to the sea. Edinburg castle, like a mighty spirit from the “ vasty deep,” reared her grey bulwarks high in air; and Arthur’s seat rose hugely and darkly in the back ground. The chorusses of the fishermen, like hymns to the great spirit of the waters, ascended over Nevv haven ; and dow n from Grangemouth, lightly booming over llto tide, floated the tall hark. '"The world seemed stepped in happiness. But there wras one—a wandering one, an outcast — wretched and despairing, amid all its loveliness ; her hnsont was cold and dark, no ray could penetrate its depths; the sun shone not for her, nor did nature smile around but to inflict a more exquisite pang on the unfortunate. Her steps were broken and hurried. She now approached the water’s edge, and thpn receded. No human creature was near to disturb Iter purpose—all was quietude and privacy ; hut there was an eye from above who who watched all. Jessie Monteith—how mourn fully sounds that name at such a crisis! But Jessie sat herself down, and, removing a shawl and bonnet from Iter person, and taking a string of pparl from her marble-seeming neck, and a gold ring, which she kissed eagerly, from her taper finger, 6he cast up her streaming eyes, meekly imploring the forgiveness of Heaven on him. the cause of her shame and death. Scarce oflerintr a prayer lor herself, she hreathed forth the names of her disconsolate, parents, and ere. the eye could follow her, she disappeared in the pure stream.— I he sun shone on, the green of the earth stirred not a leaf j a bell did nut toll ; nor did a sigh eseape front the lips of one human being, and yet the spirit of the loveliest of women passed (may we not hope?) to Heaven.

A PLEASANT CHANGE. The election returns from Pennsylvania and Ohio have put our whig friends in great good hu mor. They have been so melancholy for the last two years it really is pleasant to see them cast their weeds of mouring away, and shorten the longitude of their faces. Their first efforts at laughing seem rather awkward, to be sure; the muscles of sorrow do not readily relax ; and there is a hollow muffled ring in their audible expres sions of delight that seems in indicate a fear that the causes of merriment will he short lived. But after all, it is pleasant even in this way to he ro lieved from the tedium of their solemn and wo begone gravity. A little success dors whiggery a great deal of good, and prosperity in large doses completely intoxicates. It requires to be* treated according to the principles of Hahnemann, and to have victory dealt out to it in infinitessimal rinses. Because an obscure federal town in Connecticut does not " fall from grace,” there seems, at times to bo no limit to the glorification of certain of its organs. The question how North Bradford has gone, becomes second in importance only t> that of” Who killed Cock Robin ?” While call ing the attention of our readers to these amiable weaknesses, we do not intend to deprive our whig friends of their cold drops of comfort, for this would be unkind — it would be cruel, and if we know our own hearts, we would not do it for the world. Successful f.ffortof Nature.— We yes Jerri ay saw a piece of window glass, about one inch in length and a quarter of an inch in breadth, which had just worked its way out of the arm of Mr. Jame* M. Bankard. after havincr hpen there about eight years. About that time Mr. B. had hi* right arm cut by being violently protruded through a pane of glass. The wound'healed. but lie has always since felt some inconvenience about the arm. The wound was made a little above the wrist, and the piece of glass came out just in the bend of the arm, inside of the elbow. It has therefore been making its way fora space of eight years among the tendons,arteries and veins, with out causing serious injury. The wound is now healing, and he experiences no ill effects from it. Gf.h. Worth’s Mode of Attack.—An offi cer in the army, who was present at the storming of Monterey , says :—< Gen. Worth has just com pleted a series of the most brilliant operations in modern warfare, and with hot little hiss, fie carried four works, and then came into the town when every house was a fortification. He acted thus—Di vided his force into columns, moving par allel, and opening their way with pick axes through the houses and walls. Thus when they knocked a hole in the house they of course had possession, and^ in this way avoided the streets and the ene’ tny’s fire fnami roofs of houses arid barricades thrown up in every direction.” Convictf.o him.—-T.
