THE MODERN Ii ELLE.
Extract from Mr. Sark's Poem, read at the
lute Manchester (N. II.) Fair.
The daughter sits in the parlor
And rocks in her easy chair;
She's clad in her silks arid satins,
And jewels are in her hair
She winks, and giggles and simpers.
And simpers, and giggles, and M ink.
And though she- talks but a little,
'Tis vastly nlorc than fhe thinks.
Her father goes clad in his russett
And ragged and seedy at that
His coats are all out at t lie elbows,
He :vears a most shocking bad hit.
liVs hoiking and saving his shilling?,
So carefully U-.v by day,
While she, on her L?ux end poodles,
Is t!:rowi:i2 them all aw:i v.
She lies a-bed in the morntiiJ, I
j Till nearly the hour of noon;
I Then comes down snapping 6c snarling
because s he was called so soon;
Her hair is still in ihe papers,
11er cr.ccKsstm ttaooiea wiin paint j
r .11 1 1
remains 01 tier last ntnt s oiusues,
. .
Cefore she intended to faint.
She dotes upon men unshaven,
And men with the "flowing hair,"
She's eloquent over moustaches,
They give such a foreign air.
She talks of Italian musk',
And falls in love with the moon.
And tlfo but a mouse, should meet her
one sinks away 111 a swoon.
Hr feet are so very little.
Her hands are so Y?iy white,
li;r jewels are so very heavy,
And her head so very light;
Her color is made of cosmetics,
Though this s!i2 nevr will own.
Her body's matte mostly of cotton,
Her hart is made wholly of stone.
Mi !Y.b in 1o;m with a frllow,
Who sw.-llä wiih a foreign air,
lie .nrr.es hei for her money,
Übe marries him for his hair;
O.i? of tho very best nntchs
Holl are well iaa:ed iu life,
Slie's got a fool for a husband
lie's rot u fool lor a wife.

'IJcat to ouarters!" thundered the com-I
mander of the American vessel, and then -
as quick as thought the silence of the j
quiet vessel was broken by the shrill note
of tlu fife, the tapping of the drum, the
tread of armed mn; the triceing up xf
ports, the raliliug of cannon shot in the
racks, and the running out of heavy piec
es of ordinance.
The chi3? now showed English colors,
turned swiftly upon her heel, and run up
the private signal of lheehaunr.1 fleet.
"Show them the stars," cried the im
mortal Blakely. "Forecastle, there."
Aye, aye," replied the master's mate.

For an hour this terrible couüiJMvaSj

thetn in a voice louJer than the roaring
ocesn
'Have you surren lered?'
No human voie.e replied but a few
long eighteens thundered back the em-phaU-tic
No!'
A fresh broadside was now poured in
t') the enemy, und as the lire was not
relumed Uiakely hailed a second time.
'Have you struck'?'
A faint 'aye, aye,' now came over the
waters and the boat was at once lowered
to take yossesjion of the prize. Ai th
cutter touched tho wave ths loak-out
man died-
'Sail Ü! close aboard!'
The. smoke having blown awiy, anot'i
er vessel was se.en approaching the
Wasp, The cutter was therefore, run up
to the davits, and the crew sent again to
their guns.
The Wasp was soon in readiness to
receive the second antagonist; but two
more sails heaving in sight astern, the
con.uerer was forced to leave his prize.
The helm of the Wasp was therefore
put up and the ship ran oflf free, in order
to repair her rigging and to draw the
nearest vessel of the enemy from its con
sorts.
The second stranger continued her
chase of the Wasp until begot quite near
when he shot across her stern, gave her
a parting broadside, and beat up towards
his consort, whose signal guns of distress
now echoed in melancholy murmurs a
long the mighty deep.
The Wasp left her priza in such haste,
as to be ignorant of his name aud force.
When ths sea gives up its dead, ami the
crew of the Avon, and the little band of
Dlakely, shall muster together at the fi
lial judgments then, and then only, shall
the conqueror know its vanished foe.
The Wasp was soon lost amidst the
darkness of the night, whilst the Castil
lian, the vessel that came, to the assist
ance of the enemy, and his consorts,
hovered around the wreck of the prize,
and endeavored to save the crew.
As the morning watch was called, the
Avon gave a sudden roll to leeward, then
settling swiftly by the stern, she sink
with a gurgling sound, while her dead
meu floateJ iu ghastly aud bloody forms
upon the summer sea. With heavy
hearts the English cruisers lowered their
ensigns at half mast, and left the ocean
tomb of her sister, firing minute guus iu
memory uf their brave.
Having repaired the damages, which
were principally in her spars aud rigging
the Wasp continued her cruise to the
westward, and on the Tith of September
fell in with, and took the Three Urothers
After sculling her, she overhauled and
took the brig Bacchus. This vessel she
soon sent to a final resting place in the
ocean's realms. As she neared the Wes
tern Islruds an armed brig hove in sight.
Crowding all sail, the gallant Blakely
lired a ihot across her bows, and received
her descending flag as a token of submis
sion. The vessel proved to be the At
lanta, of eight guns and nineteen minute
men. Midshipmin Daniel Geisinger,
now a post-captain in the service, was
put on board of her as a prize mister,
and as the priza slowly parted from the
conqueror at the dim hour of evening,
the prizi mister and his crew were the

from starboard binnacle, and the signal
bell tolls sadly as the vessel is thrown
from broadside to broadside upon the
sideling waves.

'f this country should turn its back upon
; the distinguished man whom we have
invited among us. He is tue inviieu
guest of the nation; and I can see no im
propriety in receiving him in this simple
manner. The resolution merely provides
that ha shall be introduced to the Senate
in the way in which L-ifayette was in
troduced. I do not know, sir, whether
I am transgressing the rules of the Senats
in making this same proposition for him
but there is one thing I would beg leave
to say, and it is this: If this distin
guished man be received at all if you
perform this act of courtesy at all it

this man. The hopes ot tue UDerai par

ble opinion he is the great man of this
age. I feel that if there is one man who
will carry out what I hope will be car
ried out the concentration of the moral
force of this age Louis Kossuth is the
man. I think that is his mission not
to involve us in war-not to force us into
intervention, if you please but to com
