Thcre'i language that' mute, tint no silence can
Thcre'i a something that cannot be told ;
Thcro re words that can only bj read on tho
And thoughts but Iho eyes can unfold.
There a look so expressive, no timid, so kind.
So conscious , so quick to impart,
Though dumb 4 ii an instant it speak out the mind
And strikes in an iiibtant the heait.
This eloquent silence, this convi rse of sou.
In Tain we attempt to suppress;
More prompt it appears from the wish to control,
Muro apt the fond truth to cxpriss.
And oh ! tho delight in the features that shine,
The raptures in bosoms that melt,
' Who, bless' d with each other.this converse divine
Is mutually spoken and felt.

since penned by the hand of friendship, is ;-s dear
as the loved ones we cherished in our childhood.
I love to trace the diffident characters of those
with whom in happy days I held sweet converse,
and as I read 1 maik their dilll-rcnt lots.
I follow them as tlay go out into the busy
scenes of lit -, ami watch the caprice of Fortune's
dealing. On those whom sho cradled in Hope,
ar.d on whom in childhood she lavished he.r gifts j
- profusely, in future years she Irowned upon every
opening promise, blasted the flower while in the
bud, and left the signet of despair where was
wont to be seen the cheerful smile. They moved
through the busy crowd with a kind of an unwor
thy fatality ever following them. Theie aicsome
however, for whom Fame twined tho garland
wreath in youth who still wear the shining gift,

lieed to that holy injunction "Co, preach my gos

proclaiming peace to the drooping heart of the
christian, while to the impenitent the threat

we have the authority of the present Secretary ol

On reaching Montgomery, Jess went to the
Capitol, and was introduced to the Secretary: "I

will now give, premising that the gist of the sto

that it rousj lose much by being read.
Some years ag, before I eot to be Sheriff of
this county, I was in Mobile, and one day I saw a
croud moving out toward the Orange Grove;!
joined it, and found that a match fight was ab-mt
