The following thrilling verses by Mrs. Sigourncy
In connection with the report on tho murJcr of Cil
ley, have peculiar interest at the present time..
They are from trie Muy number of the Democratic
BT MBS. l'. H. BICfOURSIT. '
Tho mother sat beside her fire,
Well trimmed It was, and bright
While loud moaned the forcst-plncs, '
Amid that wintry night.
feho heard them notthose wind-swept pities,
For o'er a scroll she liting,
That boro her husband' voice of love,
A wheh that love was young.
And thrico her son, beside her kneo,
, Besought her favouring eye,
And thrice her lisping daughter speke,
Before sho made reply.
Q'littlo daughter, iriiny a kies
Lurks in this treasured, line,
And boy, a father's' counsels fond,
And tender prayers arc thine.
Thou hast his proud and arching brow;
Thou hast his eye and flame,-
And be tho purpose of his soul,
Thy sunward course the same.
Then as she drew them to her arms;
Down her fair cheek would glide
A tear, that rio'.Hfc' like diamond spark,
The tear of love and pride.
feho took her infant from its rest,
And laid it on her knee,
Jl Thou ne'er hast seen thy sire," she said;
But he'll be proud of thee.
Yes, he'll be proud of thee, iny dove;
Thelilly of our line
I know what eye of blue he (o'tcs;
And such' an eye is thine."
' Where is rhy father gone, mamal
Why docs he stay so long 1"
l He's far away in Corfgress Hall;
Amid tile noble throng;
lie's in (he lofty Congressman,
To swell the high debate,
And help to frame those righteous laws
That makes o'nr land so great;
But ere fh'6 earliest Violets bloanr,-
You in his arms shall be;
bo go to rest, my children dcir;
And pray for him and me."
Thd erfow-flakSa reared their drifted mound
They buried nature deep;
Yet nought within that peaceful home
Stirred the soft down bf sleep.
For lightly, like an arigcl df carrf;
The trance of slumber fell
Where Innocence and holy love
Entwined their guardian spell;'
Another eve,--anothcr scroll,
Wot ye what words it saidt
Two words', two fearful words it bore,
The duetl-md the dead!
The duel.' and the deadthovt dark
Was that yo'nng mother's eye,
How fearful her protracted swoon
How wild he piercing cry;
There's many a wife, whose' bc-sota lord1
Is iri bis prime laid low
Engulphcd beneath the watery main,
While bitter tempests blow,
Or crushed amid tho battle field,
Where crimson rivers flow,
Yet know thoy not the deadly pang
That dregs her cup of woe.
Who lies co-powerless on her couch,'
Transfixed by sorrow's sting!
Her infant in its nurse's arms
Lik$ tf forgotten thing 1
A dark-n'sjred boy is at her side,
He lifts his eagle eye,
" Mother, they say my father's dead;
How did my father die !"
Again, the spear-point in her breatt,
Again, that shriek of pain !
Child! thou hast riven thy mother's soul,"
Speak not those words again.
Speak not those words again, my son!"
WW bbots'tBB fruitless care 1
They're written whereso'eersho turns',
On ocean, earth, or air,
TJtey're seared upon her shrinking hesfrf,
That bursts beneath its doom,
The duel and the dead! they haunt
The threshold of her. tomb.
So, through' tier brief and weary years'
That broken heart she bore,
And on her pale slid drooping Wow"
The smile sat never more.
A pcrtfon Iri company Said to another,
,You are a great scoundrel." The other

Great imperfections in tho art and liabil

Tho rules, with one or two exceptions,
whiqh have been in use ever since the first

would long Mnco have boon superceded by
self-varying rules, had tailors but thought
that tho variation in tH6 proportions of men's
bodies aro almost as many as in the feature
of the face.
Two or three rules dtyled Sclf-vtlrying,
have made their appearance within about as
many years, each inventor claiming the hon
or of having perfected the art, upon which J.
G. Wilson, of New York, entitled his sys
tem perfect ; but instead of being perfect,
it contains many erroneous principles, which
the subscribers forbear to point out Until
that gentleman assails this assertion. All
such systems have heretofore bben defective
in two ways : First, they are only in part
self-varying. Secondly, those parts which
are intended to be self-varying aro defective.
In fact, there arc certain points on the coat
which cannot be effected by self-varying
principles in any other way, nor by any
other means, than those laid down by thd
Unlike any other of the kind, tilts sys

that should it ever fail to produce a good fit
upon any shape whatever, the charge must
be laid to a careless and incorrect measure

rule is said to be self-varying, and yet a
