To a Miniature..
'Tis strange that Art can weave a face
So radiani and divine- - -
So eloquent with thought and grace,
So beautiful as thine.
I almost see the warm blood.seek
The blue veins on thy brow,
And glow upon..A.hy pearly cheek—
So life-like seemest thou.
I love thy dark cye's sunny glee; • .
There's something in its glance
That tells thy heart is fond and free,
And full of love's romance.
The dimpled lake, the sky's soft glow,
Can no such charms impart,
As those which thou doss mutely thro •
Around the but•ning heart.
And o'er that bosom, white as snow,
Entwined in thy fair finger,
Dail, dreamy ebon ringlets flow,
--- Ks if they loved to linger;
And blest as heaven arc they blest,
Rocked in their sea-wave motion,
Like shadows on the tiny breast
Of some sweet Mimic ocean. •1k
Oh! could'st Ulna break the silent spell
That binds tlty lips so long,
Each soft, enci . anting tone would tell
That thou were burn for song.
To me, Art's melody but mucks—
For, in the gilded South,
The softest, sweetest music-box
Is woman's rosy mouth!
How fair these daughters of the sun,
These black-eyed, sparkling things,
These jewels of the Holy One,
These ;Ingels without wings!
One golden look, one crystal tear,
One sweet, emphatic word,
Is worth the wealth of Ind, so.dear,
Or all we've seen or heard.
Thou art not old, bright tropic gem—
A bud yet hall' a hlosntn ;
Too young to leave the parent !dein,
Tor. frail for roan's fond bosom:
Thou vield:•st but a star-like
13,tit were thou woman, girl.
I'd brave the battle's fiercest light
For one 'bright smile or mill.

Touching Incident at the Land Office,
A Wisconsin paper relates the following
interesting narrative of one of those real strug
gles of the young, to assist their parents,
which sparkle like diamonds along the path
way of hur an life. In traits like these there
is a moral eroism manifested, which marks
the pure gol of human character : '-
Business caved me to the United States
Land Office ; A Nile there, awaiting the com
pletion of t ybu iness, a lad apparently about
ir - 31,ct
10 or 1,7-4 ears pld, came in; and presented
teethe recet •er la certi fi cate of purchase for
40 acres of and. I was struck with the
countenance and general appearance of the
lad,.and inquired of him for whom he was
purchasin ,, the. land ; the reply. was, ~ for
myself, sir." I then inquired where e g ot
the money ; he answered, ~ I earned it by
my labor." Then, said I, you richly de
serve the land. I then inquired, where did
you come from ?
"New York," said he. Feeling anin
creased desire to know something more of
this lad, I asked whether he had parents, and
where they lived ; on this question, he took
a seat, and crave me the following narrative :
~ I am from New York state—have there
living a father, mother and five brotherS and
Fisters—l am the oldest child. Father is a
drinking man, and often would return home
from his day's work drunk, and not anent I
in his podket to buy food for the family, hav
ing spent all his day's earnings in liquor
with his drinking companions ; the family
had to depend chiefly'on mother and nkyself
Ifor bread ; this distressed mother much. and
had a powerful effect on my feelings. Find
ing that father would not abstain from liquor,
II resolved to make an effort in some way to
relieve mother,. sis.tera and brothers front

min‘acal consulting with mother. 1 got all
thelflrarmatioWl cpuld about the Far West,
and .started !ram home for. Wisconsin with
three dollars in my pocket. I left home on
foot—after spending my ihrEie dollars, I
worked• occasionally it day ; and renewed '
my travel so long es money lasted. By labor
occasionally, and the charitable treatment I
got on'the road, I landed in Wisconsin.—
Here I got an axe, set to work and cleared
land by.the job—earned money, saved it, till
1 gathered S5O, which money 1 now pay for
this 40 acres of land."
Well, my good lad, (for by this time I be
came much interested in his history.) what

come to Wisconsin and enjoy this home.—
This land, now bought by me, [ design for
My - mother, which will secure her from want
in her declining years."
What, said I, will you do with your father
if he continues to drink ardent spirits to
"Oh, sir, when We. get him on the farm
he'.will feel at home, will Work at home, l.•e'p
no liquor in' the house', and in a short time
he will be a sober man."
I then replied. young inan, these being
your principles so young•. I recounnend you
to improve on them, and the blessing of God
will fat .nd you. I shall not be surprised to
hear of y our advancement to the highest
post of I nor in the state ; with such prin

By this time the receiver handed him his
duplicate receipt for his forty acres of land ;

The Equity Court in Alabama.
When the Creek Indians inhabited Ala
bama, there were several
pointed who had extensive urisdiction to try
causes %vithout a jury. One of these magis
trates was a well known character who re
sided in Turkey Town, an Indian villag.e 'on
the Coosa river. He had a marshal who
was known in his tribe as Moneycries."
This magistrate was remarkable for his con
tempt of legal opinions, and judicial forms.

notions of right and justice caini" in contact
with law, the latter was forced to crive way.
He thought the customs of the Indians !not !

to set aside the latter. rits"

Marat was the editor of a paper whiCh he
named the Friend of the People. It is as
difficult to write without disgust of so gro- i
tesque a being, as to believe in the sort of
worship with which he was regarded at
Paris (huhg the latter portion of his life,
and after his death. Still, it is impossible
not to admit that all we know of him is
through the traditions of his enemies, of
royalists, who never could forgive hint the
twenty-first of January, of Girondists, who
could never forgive him the twenty-seventh
of May. At ally rate, his intellect, clouded
as it was• by a constitutional insanity, was
probably not so mean or despicable as they
have represented it. Voltaire was even so
struck by a pamphlet of his, on the respec
tive influences of the mind and the body, as
to have reviewed it. • Timon (M. Cormenin)
says of him : "Marat was not an orator
he was not even a mob speaker. But he
was not without ability ks a polemic; and
he had shrewdness en0u?,441 to tear it off."
His attacks upon the Newtonian philosophy
betoken a similar hardihood and a contemp
tuous hupatience of all received authority.
As the revolution advanced, it became de
veloped into the mostsanguinary intolerance.
As early as August, 1789, he declared that

punity. The Frienfl of the People became
more and more fr - antic, and more and more
poptilar. it is Curious to remark that his
chief demand at this period was a Dictator !
When the conventional electioris began he
was named, by almost universal acclama
tion, a metropolitan tnember, and what was
more extraordinary, (for violente is a com
mon title to the suffrages of capitals,) the
colleague of a Bourbon. He was received
in the Convention, as Mirabeau had been by
the States-Qenerzil, with insult and disgust.
He repelled the scorn of his adversaries with
an increased ferocity. "Massacre," he said;
•two hundred thousand partizans of the an
cient regime, and reduce the donvention to
a fourth." They attacked him for having'
called for a Dictator. The words of this ar
ticle seem new to have something of a proph
ecy. "Count not upon this or ally other as

• Music hi Minh ,
The Universal disposition of human beings,
from the cradle to the death-bed, to express
their feeling in measured cadences of sound,
and -action, proves that oar bodies are cOn l . •
structed on musical principles, hud.that the .
harmonious working of.tlidir ninchinery.de
pends on the movements of the several partsi
beind, timed to each othei, and thatsthe des- .
traction of health, as regards both body and
mind, may be well described as being pat
out of tune. Our intellectual and moral vig
or would be better sustained if we. more
practically studied the propriety of,keeping!
the soul in harmony, by regulating the move, •
tnents of the body ; for v'ie should thus . see
and feel that every affection( which -is not,
connected with social enjoyment, is also de
structive of individual:comfort, and that:
whatever tends to harmonise, also tends to
promote happiness and health. There is'
every probability that a goneral improve-'
ment in our taste for Music Would really im
prove odr morals.- We Should:indeed be .
more apt to detect discords, but then we
should also be more -ready to avoid their •
causes ' and shoal not fail td perceive that
those feelings which admit not of cheerful,
chaste, and melodious expression, are at war
with both soul and .body. A .wholesomd
musical education is perhaps a necessary s.
part of high religious cultivation, and it will'
be far more valuable to children than.the
chatecbistic familiarity with great truths,'
Which, being committed, to meraory

associated 'ivith darkaideas, instead . Of direct
ing the Soul to' the Maker of illaminitited'
