That erer woke the minstrel' fame :
No music, since the world began,
' E'er ipoke like this to ruined man ;'
Through the dark valley of the dead,
Its echo tells where angels tread.
Though from our classic temples torn,
Time honored relics we may mourn ;
Though, round Cathedral walls thy hand
Lets not one Ivy -tendril stand,
Yet this great name should ret forever,
Unmarr'd unchang'd oh ! touch it never.
Dearer than life aurpasing tvord !
In those serint hymns, first heard,
When Angels left their native fkie,
Wilh golden harps from Paradise,
Oh, Saviour! let thy grace divine
Dwell In this sorrwing heart of mine.
Though we forget our mother tongue
While Vandal tago where seraphs sung
Yet my soul recks not grief nor care,
Write but thy name, bless'd Saviour, there ;
In Him, may U and I bear tway
Though heav'n and earth should pass away.

Cod bless ye, brothers ! In tho fight

The Dead IIoj.
His little chair is vacant now,
His playthings put away;
The beauty of this cherub brow
Is vanished where he lay.
The music of his young delight
Is hushed forever more ;
The sunny face that gleamed so bright
Has faded from the door.
Yet still we listen through the night
To hear his breathing sweet,
And with the morn's awakening light
His kiss we turn to meet.
And through the lovelong day wo sigh
To catch his beaming smile,
And see th t form go bounding by
So beanlifiil ere while.
In vain, iu vain a shallow lie
Where sunbeam used to tail;
The moaning wind nluue replies,
When bis dear name we eall ;
The echoes of Iiin steps are (led,
And glance and smile are gone
And now we know that he is dead,
And we are left alone.
Put in each wind that fans our cheek
His own sweet breath is there j
And angel lips in w hispers speak
To comfort our despair ;
And every star that bums above
His own blest image fives,
And tells us that where all is love
Our boy forever lives.
How to speak to 'Children.
It is usual to attempt the management of chil
dren either by corporeal punishment, or by re
wards addressed to the senses, and not by words
alone. There is one other means of government,
the power and importance of which are seldom
regarded I refer to the human voice. A blow
may be inflicted on a child, accompanied with
words so uttered as to counteract entirely its in
tended effect; or tho parent may Use language
rjuite unobjectionable in itself, yet spukeu iu a
tone which more than defeats its influence. W hat
is it which lulls the infant to repose? It is an
array of mare words. There i9 no charm to the
untaught one, in letters, Billables, and sentences.
It is the sound which strikes its little ear that
soothes and composes it to sleep. A few notes,
however unskilfully arranged, if uttered in a soft
tone, are found to possess a magic influence.
Think we that this influence is confined to the
cradle .' No ; it is diffused over every age, and
ceaes not while the child remain under the pa
rental roof. Is the boy growing rude in manner,
and boisterous in speech ? 1 know no instrument
so surs to control those tendencies as the gentle
tones of a mother. She who speaks to her son
harshly does but give to his conduct the sanction
ofher'own example. She pours oil on the al
ready raging flame. In the presence of duty, we
are liable to utter ourselves harshly to children.
Perhaps a threat is expressed in loud apd irri
tating tone ; instead of allaying the passions of
the child, it serves directly to increase them.
Every fretful expression awakens in him Hie

Occupation for Children.
The habits of children prove that occupation is
a necessity with most of them. They love to be
busy.even about nothing, still more tobe usefully
employed. With some children it is a strongly
developed physical necessity ;and if not turned to
good account.will be productive of vil.thus verify
ing the old adage, that 'idleness is the mother of
mischief.' Children should be encouraged, if in
clined to do it, or, if not inclined, should be dis
ctplined into performing for themselves every
littlo office relative to the toilet, which they are
capable of performing. They should also keep
their own clothes and possessions in neat order,
and fetch for themselves whatever they want ; in
short, they should learn to be as independent of
the services of others as possible, fitting them a
like to make a good use of prosperity, to meet
with foititude any reverse ot fortune that may be.

An Afii'ctionate Spirit-
We sometimes meet with men who seem tn
think that indulgence, iu an affectionate leeling is
a weakness. They will return from a journey
and greet their families with distant dignity, and
move among their children with the cold and lof
ty splendor of an iceberg, surrounded with its
broken fragments. There is hardly a more un
natural sight on earth than one ot these families.
"A father had better extinguish his boy's eyes
than take away his heart. Who that has experi
enced the joys of friendship and knows the worth
of sympathy atnj affection, would not rather loose
all that is beautiful in natural scenery, than be
robbed of his heart? Who would not rather fol
low his child to the grave than entomb his paren
tal affection ?
"Cherish, then, your heart's best affections
Indulge in the warm and gushing emotions of fil

fc'fji. Taylor on I'atiguc Daly.
During his campaign in Florida, says the New

war with Mexico, "Old Zai k" displayed a rough
ness and a toughness which Major U.igMock mitht
have envied, but he appears to have wild cl down
under the oppressive hospitality, the criiiuims,
the fawnings, the all but bending of the knee
which havo attended his presidential progress.
The privations of the camp and fmced matches
through everglades and ehapperels, touched m l
the iron of his constitution, but a journey in
which he is waylaid at every stage by an army of
gentlemen will) axes to grind, is a far more se
rious affair. President Taylor as we understand
it, lid t Washington in search of recreation and
enjoyment. Unhappy delusion! lie has been
made a show of as ipuch as if he had been a
menagerie lion. To prove how much they loved
him, the office-seekers have nearly shaken his
rii(ht arm off, while batteries of speeches have
been opened upon him, dniibllf ss move annoying
to the plain old soldier than the Mexici.n guns in
"the slippery streets of Monterey.' We roeret
deeply that the brave old man is ill, but we do
not wonder at it. The atmosphi re which syco
phancy pollutes is not wholesome for honest
men. Heaven send him a speedy deliverance
from his sickness, and the caose of it. Nearly
his whole life, like lint of Othello, has hewi
passed in the tented field ; hut he now realizes
the fact that all the arts of military strategy and
defence arc no protection against the sorties of
trained politicians.
By the time (Jon. Tay'or has made one-third
as many political tours as Henry Clay, he will
estimate at their true value the fine things ad
dressed by ambition and cupidity to present or
prospective authority. He will u nleistand that
men who make a business of politics always wor
ship the rising or the risen sun that their pule
star is their interest and that they w ould walk
over the prostrate body of the greatest of states
men and patriots, if that were the shortist rut to
office and emolument. How often have men of
this class tossed their caps for "Harry Clay."
How basely they deserted him, let history tell

the country, either refuses to have an interview
wilh them, or anweis their protestations of
respect and affection with a curled lip and con
temptuous words.
