PASSING CLOUDB. Where are the swallows tied ? J Frosen and dead Perchanoe upon somd bluak and stormy shore. 0 doubting heart! They wait l4 sunny ease, Far o'er the purple seas, The balmy southern breeze, To bring them to their northern homes once more, Why must the lowers die? Poisoned they lie In the oold tomb, heedless of tear or rain. O0doubting heart! They only sleep below, While winter winds shall blow ; To breathe and smile upon you soon again. The sun bath hid Its rays These many days; Will dreary hours never leave the eartht 0 doubting heart, The stormy clouds on high, Vail the sme sunny sky, That soon, (for spring is nigh) Shall waki the summer into golden mirth. Fair hope is dead, and light Is quenched in night. What sound oan break the silence of despair I 0 doubting heart I The sky is overcast, Yet stars shall rise at last, Brighter for darkness past, And angel's silver voices stir the air. A SBHOr LIOrTUBE TO YOUNG MEN.-We clip the following from Hunt's Merchants Magazine of a recent date, and which, for a leson in sound wisdom, cannot be beat, and we think, cannot be too often repeated. Every young man ought to carry a copy of it with him, and preserve it as carefully as he does a jewelled watch, or more so. Indeed it would do no hurt to hang it up over every mantle-shelf as a family picture for a memento: Keep good company or none, and never be idle. If your hands cannot be usefully employ ed, attend to the cultivation of your mind. Always speak the truth. Make few promises. LIve up to your engagements. Keep your own secrets if you have any. When you speak to a person, look him in the face. Good company and good conversation are the very sinews of virtue. Good character is above all things else. Your character cannot be essentially in jured except by your own acts. If one speaks evil of you, let your life be so that nobody will believe him. Drink no kind of intoxicating liquors. Ever live, misfortune excepted, within your income. When you retire to bed, think over what you have been doing during the day. Make no haste to be rich, if you would prosper; small and steady gains give comn poteucy, with tranquility of mind. Never play at any kind of game of chance. Avoid temptation, through fear you may not withstand it. Never run in debt unless you see a way to get out again. Never borrow if yon can possibly avoid it. Never speak evil of any one. Be just before you are generous. Keel) yourself innocent if you would be happy. Save what you are going to spend so as to have it when you are old. iThle New orlk Spiritual Telegraph gives some odd quibbles in a lacetious arti cle entitled " Living by one's Wits," and which are unique in their way- 1. lHow many soft boiled eggs could the' giant Goliah eat on an empty stomach. Ans.-- One; because he who has caten one egg, can't cat a ecoLnd on an EMPTY stomach. 2. Why did did the apostle Paul write the second epistle to the Corinthians ? Because lie was not in Corinth, otherwise he would have spoken to them. 3. Who prolongs his work to the great est length poNible, yet completes it in time? The ropemakcr if he is industrious. 4. In what month do people eat the least food ? February; asit contains only twenty.eight days. 5. What fish have their eyes nearest to gether ? The smallest. 6 Ilow can irve persons divide five eggs so that each man shall receive one, and still one remain in the dish ? The last takes the dish with the egg, and can let it lie there as long as he plea ses. 7. How can a mnan ride tioni one place to axpther in the shade, when at intervals the sun shines full upon himn? At such intervals lie has only to diInouiit and walk. I '" John, your'n is a good wife." "Good, do you a.y ? she's a perfect devil?"

TN CONNECTION with the usual matter, I political and literary, contained in the UNI TED STATES REVIEW, we intend to republish all the state papers extant on the question of state rights as announced inthe VirginiaResolutions of '98 and '99. The publication will embrace also the works of standard writers such as John Taylor of Caroline, whose works are now nearly out of print. These valuable political data will be carefully collected, and when com pleted, will furnish a complete constitutional historyf our Federal Union. The subscrip tion list of thile " State-Rights Register" (the prospectus of which was issued under the ap; probation of the Democratic members and senators in congress) will be furnished regular ly with the Review from this date, and we hope each subscriber will feel that he is performing a duty to a great and sacred political principle by extending the list of names already on our books. It is time for us to go go back to those pure principles upon which the great fabric of de mocracy rests; principles originated and defined by those who created, and best understood the true meaning of the constitution. It is time that the friends of state sovereignty should ral ly around some common nucleus, to resist, the wild latitudinarianism of the age, and evident tendency of the republic towards concentration -to end at best in a mixed monarchy. It is time for each states-rights man to feel that lihe must give his own personal individual influence to the defense of the very corner-stone of our constitutional government. We send the Review to the subscribers of B the State-Rights Register, and feel confident e that they will respond heartily to the call. r The true Democracy have a great battle to fight, a great principle of self.government to uphold, an inspired Constitution to defend. May each one of us feel that it is an individual , duty. LLOYD & CAMPBELL, Publishers. WAsm5aIotoN, April, 1856. UNITED STATES REVIEW OFFICE.J N.
