NEUTRAL IN POLITICS.
From Holden's Dollar Magazine.
Remenisoeties of theWitite Rose
remember, I was planted
By a maiden's snowy hand,
And her ftit'm was sweetly graceful
As a sylph's from fairy land.
Her blue eye was brightly sparkling
With tht purest joy and love,
And she seemed a happy angel
That had wandcred from above.
Sunbeams of life's pleasant morning,
Trembled on her youthful way;
And before her eye the future
With enchanting prospect lay.
Meek and lonely was her spirit,
And she loved the blooming flowers,
For she read of God, in nature,
On this pleasant land of ours.
By a neat and pretty cottage,
Where rich flowers in beauty bloom,
I was trained around a window, .
There to shed my sweet perfume:
And there my guardian would warble,
Her sweet songs with merry tune;
- Pleasant as the fairy-wind.harp's;
In the month of rosy June.
But one spring time she did languish,.
As my own fair severed flowers;
And her cheerful song grew fainter,
Through the balmy venal hours.
Till one morning when my Poses
Were in all their wealth of bloom, '
They placed her by her favorite window,
Where I'shed my sweet perfume.
Her fair form was white as marble
And I saw it had no breadth;
But it was so very lovely
That I could not think 'twas death
But my sweetest rose was resting
In her still and icy hand—
And her friends were gathering round her
And how stricken was their band.
With slow steps that seemed so solemn
Far away her form they bore,
And the cottage now is lonely,
For I never saw her more.
But I hear them say the angels
Bore her spirit to the skies,
Where she lives a smiling cherub
In the realms of paradise.
Married and Unmarried.
The situation of a married and unmar
ried female, it must be confessed, .is very
unequal—the former having greatly the ad
vantage in the scale of earthly happiness;
and the world makes the distinction still
more unequal than nature intended it. At
thirty-five the married woman is considered
in the noon of life, while the single woman
is looked upon passed.
Again the wife has less necessity to de
pend epos intellectual pleasures as resources
against the lassitude of ennui. She has
duties to perform let her station in life be
what it may, to which*the single woman can
not turn to vary the monotony of her exist
ence. The matron, if she be a mother, will
find a sufficient stimulus to keep up or re
vive, in the early instruction which it is one
of woman's sweetest privileges to give her
offspring, the knowledge and accomplish
ments which.she learned in her youth.
What pleasure can be higher or more un
alloyed to the bestower—what sight more
endearing to the beholder—than a matron,
over whose brow the shadow of time, like
that on the dial, has passed, yet left much of
the sunny light of life behind, leading her
fair daughter to emulate the grace, of which
she herself is so fair a pattern? Or to mark
a son, in all the pride of youthful manhood,
paying back with love, little short of adora
tion, the cares of her whose gentle instruc
tion first lured hint to seek the wide paths
of knowledge, and at whose knee his infant
prayer was first breathed ? Other feelings
grow cold ; other memories pass away; but
the gentle image of the mother who has
watched our childhood—her love, her un
wearied devotion, will forever be mirrored in
the human heart
Matrimony and its inducements.
An exchange paper says we heard a very
good joke some time since that occurred in
Paris where there are all kinds of strange
people and a great variety of queer places.
Among the latter are offices for the procure
ment of marriages, and the keepers of the
same are called marriage brokers.
It appears that a'young Parisian, who had
once known prosperity, became exceeding
ly poor, and in cogitating upon the best
means to recruit his finances stumbled upon
the thought of matrimony. He had hither
to lived, a wild and independent life, and the
connubial thought was therefore reluctantly
entertained ; but his affairs were pressing,
and his wit could suggest no other means to
retrieve them. He posted to the brokers
office, and made application for a lady,
young, and rich. Hymen's agent stated'
that he had called very opportunely, as he
had upon his book a lady that was young,
fair, and worth fifty thousand francs.
The eyes of our friend sparkled at the
mention of the money, and for that consider
ation he was willing to submit to the imam
bmnce of a wife.
'Very well,' said the broker, 'I will give a
I description of your person to the lady, make
some inquiries in reference to your family,
report the same, and give you an answer in
Otir hero expressed himself satisfied, and
was about leaving, when the broker stopped
him, and mentioned that as he would be put
to a good deal of trouble about the matter,
and it might be possible a failure, it was but
fair that he should be rewarded, in fact it
was indispeneible that his fee should be paid
'And what is your fee, sir ?' asked our he
ro, somewhat chop-fallen.
'Fifteen francs,' replied the broker.
The young Parisian gazed steadfastly at
the man for a moment as he buttoned his
coat close up to his chin.
'And have you the intolerable 'impudence
to suppose,' he said, as he thrust his hand
into a torn pair of gloves, and darted indig
nantly towards the door, 'that if in the entire
universe. I possessed such an amount fifteen
francs, I would be frantic enough to get mar

A certain barber of our town, having
