Take in the idle tale yon hear - And hand it round and round, There's many a one whose thirsty ear Will drink the pleasant sound, And tell it with an added part To each one that receives bint 1 But always with an honest start, That proves bo much it grioves him. Look wise for one?, and boldly ro You'll raSe a w-n-nin hand i Ferchnnco thero is some fair young brow Just waiting for your brand. Make husto to bring your foul complaint Against life's fnint beginners ; Prove to the world you are a saint, By making otLers sinners. Oh I slanderer With the listening ear And ever ready tongue. There is a curse in every tear You wring from old or young ; Thou dark intruder in the abode Most sacred to another. The braver murd'ror on the road, Would blush to call thee brother. THE PROUD HEART BROKEN. Tell him, tell him that in the trill I was the light of the festival ; Tell him how proudly I paced the dance What power I bora in word or glanoe : And how each wave of my oarcless hand Seemed a strong srieU, like a king's command. Tell him, tell him my Hp was wreathed With a glnd, cold smile, ashis name was breathed: Tell him I laughed with the proud and cold, In mockery deepjat those days of old ; Those dreams of folly, the fir, the dim, When my haughty spirit was bound to him. But tell him not, tell him not, day by day, The light of my eye, how it blanched away ; Tell him not how, in the hush of night, H form would arise to my aching tight, Till my hands were clasped o'er my closed eyes. To shut out those haunting memories. Friend !. gcnSe-friend I thou hast loved me long, And thy heart is stirred with my woe and wrong; Oh ! be it ne'er to the false one known That my fpirit's worship was his alone ; In my dying heart is a gush of pride, Tell him not, tell him not how I died. Say that I passed, in my flush of power, A rose bud dashed by a sudden shower , A string which burst in the tide of song. Touched by a ini too lull and strong ; A star that shot from iU lofty sphere, Losing its lustre and glory bere. DEATH THE I.EVELUER. The glories of our mortal state Are shadows, not substantial things ; There is no armor against fate j Death lays his icy hand ou kings. Sceptre and crown Must tuml)!u d'wn. And in the dust be equal made With the poor cr joked ecythe and spade; Some men with swords may reap the field, And plant fresh laurels where they kill ; But their strong nerves at last must yield. They tame but one another still ; Ennly or latv. They stoop to fate, And ma t give up their conquering bre uh, When tbty, pale captives, creep to death. The garlands wither on your brow. ; Then boast no more your mighty deeds ; See where the victor-victim bleeds 1 Aft beads uiust come To the cold tomb.

The Russian and United States ministers have concluded treaties with th Chinese, and -be bearer of ho Russian treaty is a pa-senger by the' present steamer. We cannot sihte posbively what concessions have been obtained tro.n the Chinese by these tieaties, but it is probable a good deal is left to depend upon the treaties to be ob tamed by the- allies, the Russians and 'he Americans' stipu at;ng for the satne privi lege" as granted to other nations. It is mentioned that the Americans stipu lated for the openi'ig of 'lie new ports of Swaftow ami Tai wan, in Fonnosa. As re gaids ihe qustiou of compensation for piop tty destroyed al Canton, we do noi heat that anything was ai ranged Evening. -There are two periods in the life of man in which the evening hour is pe culiarly interesting in youth and in old ago. Iu youth we love it for its mellow moonlight, its millions of star", its thin, rich shooting shades, its still serenely, amid those who can commune with our loves, or twiue the wreath offrienlship, whila there is none to bear 'us witness but the heavens and the spirits that hold their endless sabbath there or look into the deep bosom of creation, spread abroad like a canopy above us, and look and listen till we cuu almost sea and hear the waving wiugs and melting songs of tb other world. ' To youth, evening is delightful, it accords with the flow of his light spirits, the fervor or ttis tancy, and the softness of his Heart. Evening is, also, the delight of virtuous ages, it seems an emblem of the tranquil close of busy life serene, placid, mild tbo impress I of its Creator stamped upon it; it spteads j its quiet wings ovor the grave, and seems to promise that all shall bo peaco beyond it. SOUTH- UNPARALLELED FEMALE DEPRAVITY. The following narrative of an instance of almost incredible female depravity is fl'oru a paper in Alleghany county, N. Y.: We paid a flying visit t lie other day to the county Beat. On our return, tlpnri reaching B'lviderc, waiting to take the Dunkirk Kx prws for home, we ob-erved, seated upon the platform of the Depot, a Well-dressed, gen teel appearing man. with two interesting little (iris, oue upon each side. There was something in the appearance of the grmtp that nttractud attention and excited curiosi jty. There was an expression of sadne?s ul,on cacl1 countenance which nothing but a. iinr great sorrow could produce. We ap preached theiu and commenced a ennversa tion with the man, wh i was trunk and in telligent, and from him learned the follow ing story : The little girls wsre his children, aged fivo and seven. He wns married to their mother about ci:ht yenrs, and lived with her in a perfect state of happiness until last fall. His home is in Burton, twentyeight miles east of Elmira, on the Erie road In December lust a near and intimate neighbor employed a negro to do a job-of work, and for a few days got this m m to lodge the negro in a bick chamber in his bouse. The negro completed his job bin still hungnbout the premises. The husband ordered him away, and rcmonstra'cd with his wife, (;is the affair had created some, scandal in the neighborhood,) although the husband had nut a su!-picin;t of anything wrong on tU part of his wife lit. the t,in:e. The wife was . indignant wrote to h brother in Bingbamptnn that her liush nni bud insulted her. The brother came ami took the wife and daughters home for a few weks, until the difficulty wore away. Sin had no sootier arrived there than the negro presented himself und was lurking about. In a few days the w ife, eluding the vigilance of the brother and f.itn'tly, eloped with I lie negro, taking with her t lie two daughters the only children. The first clue the bus band or brother had been able to get of the fugitives, was on the day before we saw the group nt Belvidore, when he learned they ware about four miles south of Frieu lsliip. in this county, among some negro inhab itants li nng there. He took tbo cars and reached Beividere that morning got a live ry and went immediately iu the direction of the settlement He was armed witu a six- shooter, as he said, lo kill the negro if ho saw him. He sc-on found the negro shanty, where his guilty wife, was living with the negro The first persons he saw were his little girls in lags, playing about the hut, Tlio wife and negro were away in the Beld boiryin?. He entered the cabin and sail it presented a scene of squalid wretchedness no c.iair, a little straw anil old quilts constituting the beds; and a few plates and a kettle made up the furniture. He took the-little girls nnd the mother's trunk and returned to the Beividere station With the aid of the landlady, he washed and dressed up the children with the only remaining clothes found in the trunk, and was waiting for the cars to take them home. He was- a mechanic candid and honest hearted to appearance, and in comf triable circumstances. There is no taint of African blood in either, He showed a daguerreotype of his faithless wifo. She was good looking above tlio average of her scz rather pre possessing, lie said she was educated and iutelliiiont.. and hud always moved in good society. The shades of nigh'- were drawing around, but as we scanned the picture we thought we could detect in her otherwise beautiful face a vein of low sensual pas:-ion. The little girls were really pretty and pre cocious. About this time we heard the whistle of the train. They were soon on board." We saw tho three in a scat. The little girls nestled beside the injured fa'ber, and soon i hey sped away, leaving the nwither to wretchedness ami her vagabond paramour. Alovk in Lifr. What r-an be more dts ;oura'in" than the feeling that, in our strug- gli's tlnoiigb life, in our trials and our dis appointments, there are none to sympathise or care fir us? No man can go far with unabatud strencrih, courage and cbeefj if he goes alone. We are m ule to be rendered happier ami better by each oiher's notice. appreciation, help and praise ' and the hearts lhat are debarred trom iti-se ltuiuences inev itablv wither, hfmbm or break. Here and there are found persons who from pride, perverseness, or from very sensihYenes-, (which they ;hu seek to hide, affect to b tibogether in.'ependent of the not e" of re-o-ard of their lellow be'iigs: but it is a very & 4 ' . sate assertion to make, that nev r Tet was thete oue human heart that did not, at some lime, and in some lender and yearning bout, Lng for the s mpaihj of oilier hearts.
