I asked a glad and happy child,
Whoso hands wete tilled with flowers,
Whose ailvery Utogh rang Tree and wild
Anionfe the vino wreath bowers;
1 crossed her euritly path and cried,
When is the time to diet'
'Not yel l not yet 1' the child replied
And swiftly bounded by.
I asked a maiden) back she threw
The tresses of her hair;
briefs traces o'er her cheeks I knew,
Liko pearls thpy glislaned there;
A flush passed o'er her lily brow,
I heard her spirit sigh ;
'Not now,' she ciied, 'O no; uot now,
Youth is no time to die 1'
I asked a mother, as she pressed
Her first born fn her arms,
And quickly on her throbbing breast,
She hushed her babe's alarms:
In quivering tones her answer came
Her eyes wero wet with tears:
My boyhis mother's life must claim
For many, many years.' ,
I questioned one in manhood's prime,
Of proud and fearless air;
His brow was furrowed not by time,
Or dimmed by woe worn care,
In angry accents ho replied,
And flashed with scotn his eye :
Talk not to me of death,' he cried,
For only age should die.'
I questioned age, for him the (omb
Has all been long prepared;
But death, who withers youth and bloom,
This man of 3"outh has spaied;
Once mote his nature' flying fire
Flashed high, and thus he cried;
Life 1 only life is my desire 1'
Then grasped and groaned add died.
I asked a Christian . 'Answer thou
When is the hour of death V
A holy calm was on his brow,
And peaceful was his breath.
And sweetly o'er his features stole
A smile, a light divine;
He spake the language of his soul,
Aly master's time is mine 1'
Eesloring Suspended Animation. As
the season is now approaching, when the
cases of drowning are most frequent, the
following hints, which we have derived
from the best authority, may be useful.
As the rudo attempts of well meaning
persons, to restore suspended animatijn
from drowning, are often as likely to ex
tinguish life as to restore it, we have thought
that we could not better serve the cause of
humanity, than by publishing a few plain
directions, for the guidance of thoso bystan
ders on such accidents, till the assistance of
a physician could ho procured. We are.
reminded of this duty by a fact that occur
red only a day or two ago, when tho first
act of the persons around, on fishing out
the body, was to roll it in a barrel, a pro
ceeding generally murderous in its conse
quences, 1. The attrocious custom of suspending
the sody by me neejs, or roiling: it in a
barrel, is not to be thought of; but carefully
and qttichiy removejthe body to a warm and
dry room;
2. Cut off the wet clothes of the patient
place him on a low bed, and on his right
side, slightly separating the jaws to allow
the escape of any water in the mouth or
3. Endeavor to restore heat slowly to
the body, by applying a bottle filled with
hot water to the pit of the stomach, hot
bricks to the soles of the feet, and frictions,
with hot flannels or a soft brush, over the
whole body.
4. Tickle the lips and the nostrils with
n feather;or some other light body, dripped
in hartshorn.
S. If these attempts do not succeed in
restoring some degree of animation, burn
email pieces of paper over the nit of Ihe
etomach, and on the thighs and arms.
0. If sensibility be restored, give a table
spoonful of camphorale brandy, or cologne
water,diluded with two pails of waler.every
five minutes, but be careful not to force tXe
patient to dunk, while there is much difli
cully in swallowing,
7. If sensibility be restored, and the face
red or purple, ihe limbs flexible and warm
bleed him, but do not resorUo this temedy
if the body is cold or stiff.
8. Tobabco is not to be used under any
There is a lawyer down e&st so exceed
inslv honest that he puts all his flower
tiqIs ont over nirrht, so determined is h
that every thing shall have its dew.
From tht Motion Trhhicripli
A Fortune, A yobng lawyer, of this
city, possessing talent in his piofessibti,
but little pecuniary ability to start swimm
ingly into life, by one of llioeo singular
chances which arfe as rare as they are fortu
nate, has suddenly as we learn, bbcotno the
possessor of a (ortune the attainment of
which is indeed remarkable. One day,
which seems to have been marked ih his
calender as especially propitious and smil
ing, a laboring Irishman entered his oflice
to consult him upon particular business for
which he had been refused the advice of
professional gentlemen. Pursuing the ne
cessary details, he drew from his pockets
sundry documents unconnected with the
original matter in reference, which, exciting
the atteuiion uf the lawyer, proved to be
certificates of deposits for a large sum of
money in the Bank of Dublin, the value
of which was previously unknown to his
Tim appearance of things naturally
enough attracting professional observation;
on examination was subsequently instituted
which resulted in the fact that property to
the amount of 60,000 had been deposited
to the credit of the hitherto poor laborer in
the bank, and in establishing his title also
to a large landed estate in Ohio, which was
valued at $1,700,000 and bequeathed to the
Irishman by the will of a wealthy but un
known relative. The gratitude and gener
osity of the Hibernian nation are well
known,, but, with a liberality which is not
generally manifested, except in cases of
sudden and unexpected accession to fortune
the now wealthy client insisted upon relin
quishing all claim to the landed property of
which he had become possessed in favor of
his lawyer, reserving to himself only tho
personal estate in itself a fortune. The
money has in part been withdrawn, from
Ihe Bank of Dublin, and we understand that
15, 000 came out to this country in one of
the late steamers, tho 'removal of the depo
bites' probably being in favor of some ono
of our American banks. It is stated that
this matter which hag resulted so fortunately
has been in process of settlement for several
months, the lawyer himself having journied
to the El Dorado of the West in prosecution
of the special business of his generous
client, and having returned willr a portion
of the income derived from the large prop
erty there held in possession.
The imaginations of females are always
more excitable than mar., and they are
therefore more susceptible of any folly
when they lead a life of secret seclusion,
andxheir. thoughts are constanly turned
inward upon themselves; hence, in orphan I
aayiuuwj nusiiiidis, auu uuivcihs, uic ucr
vous disorder of one female so easily, quick
ly becomes the disorder of all, It is recorded
in a medical book, that a nun in a large
covenent in France, began to mew life a cat;
hortlv afterwards other nuns mewed every
dav at a certain time, for several hours
together. The surrounding neighborhood
heard with some astonishment the daily
cat concern, which did not cease until the
nuns were informed that a company of sol
dier were placed by the public before the
the entrance of the convent, provided with
rods, and would continue whipping them
until they promised not to mew any more.
Li m ol all the epidemics says Dr. Bab
bington, in his recently published work)of
females, which I myself have seen in Gei
many, or of which the histoiy is known
to me, the most remarkable convent epi
demic of ihe 15th century. A nun in a
German nunery fell to biting all her com
panions. In a short lime all the nuns of
this convent began biting each other. The
news of this infatuation among the nuns
soon spread, and it then passed from con
vent to convent throughout a great part of
Uermany, principally baxony and liranden
ourz. Jt afterwards visited Ihe nuneries of
Holland, and at last tho runs had the bum?
mania even far as Rome''
Generation after generation, savs
eloquent modern writer, have felt as
feel, and their fellows were as active
life as ours now. They passed away
vapors, while nature ware the same aspect
of beauty as when her Ureator commanded
her to be. And so, likewise, shall it be
when we are gnne. The heavens will be
bright over our graves as they are now
around our path; tho world will have tho
same attractions for offspring yet unborn,
that she had once for our children. Yet a
little while, and all this will have happened
The throbbing heart shall be stilled and we
shall be at rest. Our funeral will wind on
its way, and the prayer will wind on its
way, and the prayer will be said, and the
grave clods will be thrown in; and our
friends will return and we shall be left
alone to darkness and the worm, And it
may be for some short time we shall be
spoken of, but the things of life will creep
in, and our names will soon be forgotten.
Days will continue to move on and laugli
ier and song will be hearu in tho very
chamber in which he died : and the eye
that mourned for us will be iliied, and
will glisten again with joy, and even our
children will cease to think of us, and
will not remember to lisp our name
Then shall we bedorae, in the language of
the Psalmist, forgotten and clean out ol

In the course of n few weeks the undersigned
will commence on his own account, the publication
of a New Scries of the N. YORK MIRROR, in
the octavo form, on an entirely novel and original
plan, with a Steel Engraving in every number and
at Iho reduced piico oi Three. Dollars per amium,or
six and a quarter cents per copy.
Tho New mirror will appear with many striking
and attractive features, distinguishing it from every
other periodical. It will bo published with new
type, on fino paper, and each number will contain
a beautiful original Engraving on Steel, designed
ahd etched by Chapman, illustrating tho letter
press which it accompanies, nnd which it will in
vest by peculiar interest. Besides tho contributions
of all our extensive, corps of correspondents which
embraces most of tho talent of this country we
have made arrangements for fresh and early trans
lations from some of the best writers of FranccJ'and
for proof sheets from Bcveral of the popular authors
of England. M ilh such materials, and with such
able fellow laborers in tho literary vineyaid, wo
hone to present to the American reader n weekly
journal of great value and unusual oxccllchcy.
I he parade or mere names will lie sedulously avoi
ded. Tho mirror will be remarkable, we hope,
rather for good articles without namcs.than for poor
articles with diitintruished names. It will embrace
in its scope every department of elegant literature,
comprising talcs of romance,skctches of society and
manners, sentiment and every day life, piquant es
says, domestic and foreign correspondence, literary
intelligence; wit and humor, fashion and gossip,
poetry, the fino arts, and literary, musical and dra
matic criticisms. Its reviews of new works will be
careful, discriminating and impartial. It will aim
to foster a literature, suited to the taste and deurcs
of the age and country. Its tendency will he cheer
ful and enlivening, as well as improving. It will
seek to gratify every refined taste, but never to of
fend tho most fastidious; and it will ever feel its
duty to be, to 'turn the sunny side of things to hu
man eyes.'
The work will be published every Saturday; in
numbers of sixteen large octavo super royal pages,
with double columns, und enclosed in a neat orna
mental covor. It will form, at the end of the year
two superb volumes, each ot lour hundred anil
sixteen pages, filled with the gems of literature and
the fine arts.
The very low prico at which i t will bo issued,
renders it the chcaj est periodical in this or any oth
er country, considering the cost and beauty of its
FIFTY TWO ENGRAVINGS, and tho intrinsic
value of its literary contents. Thoso desirous of
receiving tho paper from this commencement, will
have it punctually sent to their address upon .heir
forwarding to the undersigned, at No. 4 Ann street
three dollars, Tree from expense.
Letters enclosing tho amount of subscription
may be flanked by all postmasters. Agents, carri

terms. Tho Cash System will be rigidly adhered
to, without any deviation whatever.
