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

UNITED STATES REVIEW & STATE
RICHTS REGISTER.
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.

DESIRABLE TOWN RESIDENCE
For Sale or for Rent.
M Y FAMILY RESIDENCE in the town
of Clinton, in which I am now living, In
cluding the entire premises, lot, dwelling house,
kitchen, store-rooms, carriage houses, stables,
cribs, and flower and kitchen gardens, besides I
all other appurtenances necessary and conveni
bunt for a comfortable family residence.
The lot is situated just near enough to the
public squure to be both convenient and re
tired; measures seventy-five feet front by three
hundred back, hounded on the east, north and
south by a public street, and on the west by
the residence of P. C. Hardee, Esqr.
The dwelling house is two stories high, is
large and airy, raised several feet off of the
ground, to admit the free passage of air under
neath. It contains eight large rooms, four
above, and four below; four measures eighteen
feet square, and four are seventeen by eighteen.
There are also two large halls, one above, and
one below stairs. Also two balconies, both on
the upper story, one in front, the other in the
rear of the house, with a piazza on the lower
story, fronting the street.
This house was built for a family residence,
and every attention was paid to the construc
tion of every portion of it, with a view to beau
ty of structure, comfort and health. No resi
dence can be found in the Parish surpassing it
ni these particulars.
The kitchen is large and commodious, con
taining four extra rooms.
There is a most excellent well on the prem
ises, affording water in good quantities, amply
sufficient for all family purposes.
The entire establlishment built in the fall of
t853, is entirely new and in an admirable state
of repair.
I will also sell all my kitchen and household
furniture, complrising: sofas, chairs, tables, win
dow curtains, of fine quality, selected for my
i own use, &c. &e., on the most reasonable terms,
and in lots to suit the purchaser.
The house and fixtures are insured to the 7th
of May, 1850. The purchaser will have the
benetit of the insurance. A. LEVI.
