We were not many wo who stood
Beforo the iron hail that day;
Yet many a gallant spirit would
flive half his years, if ho but oould
Havo been with us at Monterey.
Now here, now there, tho shot is hailed
In deadly drifts of fiery spray,
Yet not a single soldier quailed
When woundod comrades round them wailed
Their dying shouts at Monterey.
And on, still on, our columns kopt,
Through walls of flame its withering way,
Where foil tho dead, tho living stopt,
Still charging on tho guns that swept
Tho alippery streets of Monterey.
The foe himself recoiled aghast,
When, Striking whore the strongest lay,
w e swept its flaming batteries past,
And bruving full their uiurdereus blast,
Stoauied home tho toners of Monterey.
Our banners on those turret wave,
Aid there the evening bugles play;
Where oraugo boughs above their grave
Keep green tho memory of the brave
Who fought and fell, at Monterey.
Wo are not many we who pressed
Beside the bravo who fell thut day ;
But who of us has not confessed
He'd rather share their warrior re."t,
Than not have been at Monterey.
Homo I tho centre of delight,

It appears that the elder brother of a

his pretty wife, and mildo her his idol, his
temple of devotion morning and evening.
In an evil hour, a younger brother, Mieha
el Angolo Gitto, looked with loving eyes
upon his sister-in-law, and she was won
from her allegiance to her lord. The guil
ty pair made their escape to this country,
bringing with them a littlo daughter, and
leaving tl.e husband and two little boys in
their deserted Italian home. The broth

this city some months ago, and opened a
confectionary store on Main street.

The first company of "Mormon Elders

A STRONG CHANGE.
The Elkton (Md ) Democrat states, that

victed bt'fore the Cecil County Circuit
Court for the robbery committed by them
on the farm of Gen. Cadwalader, and the
attack 011 Mr. Murphy, his overseer; In
Harford county, .ludgo Price addressed
the prisoners, in substance as follows:
"You have been found guilty, by a jury
of your country, of two high offences
against the laws of" the land, and tho peace
and good order of tho Stnte, viz: burglary
and larceny. You banded yourselves to
geiher for crime: for robbery ami plun
der. You deliberately arranged anil fitted
out, in the city ol Baltimore, an expedi
tion to tho country for that purpose; anil
did at the dead hour of night, attack, rob.
and plunder the retired and peaceful a-
liode ot Mr. Murphy, a worthy and unof
fending citizen of Harford county. For
theso offences it is necessary that you
should bo punched, und uillhu puiii.-hcd,
not only because you deserve it, but also,
as a warning to others.
I recret that 1 feel myself obliged, by
the duty I owe to community, to speak to
you thus, and to impose upon you a sen
tence, which no'doubt you will regard, and
perhaps many others, ns unduly severe,
liut the time ha como nhen, I think,
when fbrbearanc'i to such 4 ; ycu aro ccu-
thoro is a timo to laugh, as well as 11 time
to i lourn. Man only laughs man, the
highest organized being ; and hence the
definition that has been proposed of "man
a laughing animal." Certainly itdefiuis
him as well as a "cooking tiiimal," 11 toil
ntaking animal', a "inotiey iiiakliig ani
mal," 11 "politicM animal," or sikh like.
Laughter vriy often shows the bright Mile
of a man. It brings out his happier mv
ture, anl shows of what sort of'stud'he is
really made. Somehow we feel ius if wo ne
ver thoroughly, know a man until wo hear
him laugh. Ve do not incur! a mere snig
ger; but a gdod roitiid hearty laiigll. The
solemn sober visage, like a Sunday dres'
tells nothing of the real man. Ho may be
very silly, or very profound ; very cross,
or very jolly. Let us hear him laugh, and
wc can decipher hirit lit oJicc, and tell how
his heart beats. We are disposed to sus
pect tho man that never laitghs. At all
events there is a repulslou about him
which wo cannot get over. Lavator says
"shun that man who never laughi, who
dislikes music., or the glad face ofa child."
This is what every liody feels, and noni
more than children', who aro quick at rea-
ling characters; and tlieir strong instinct
rarely deceives them. lUivkmowl.
