The owl, he limb well
In the shadow" of the night;
And it pirnles him to tell
Why the Eagle Lovell the Light.
Away he lloata—avray,
• From the forest, dim and old.
Whore he puled the garish day x
The Night loth snake hint bold!
The wave of Ins downy wing,
As his courses' round about,
Disturbs no sleeping thing
That he tindoth in his route.

And the vale, grows so ft ly light;
And the cock, with greeting shrill,
Wakes die pane of the night.

And the cock—it doth but tell,
Poor fool ! its resting place.
And as gill as the spirit of Death
0i the air his pinion" play ;
There's not the note of a breath,
As he grapples with his prey.
Oh, tho slipdowy Night for him !
It bringith !anthill and glee ;
And what cants he how dim
For the Eagle it may be !
It clothes him from the cold,
It keeps his larders fall
And he loves the darkness old,
To the Eagle all so doll.
But the dawn is in the esa—
And titer shadows disappear ;
And at once his timid breast
Feels the presence of a fear.
He resists ;—hut all in vain !
The clear Light is not for biro ;
Be he hastens back &pia
To the forest old and dim.
Through his head strange fancies run ;
For he cannot comprehend
Why the moon, and then the sun,
Up the heavens should ascend,—
When the old and quiet Night,
With its shadows dark and deep,
Anil the half-revralintlight
Of its 'tont, he'd ever keep.
And ho hooteth loud and long :
Dot the Eagle greets the Day,
And on pinions cold and strong
Like a Roused Thought sweeps away !

Lag not the oar when skies are clear,
A . Nor leave the trusty helm.
We cannot tell bow lime and near
Are blasts to overwhelm.
Though dark the night, to watchful eyes
The stars will never fail,
And clouds, when morning lights the skies,
Bring tidings of the gale.
The calm should never be idly spent,
While sleep the threat'ning eras,
Trim up the sails the storm has rent,
And fling them to the breeze.
The tide is not an even tide,
Though iunooth the track behind—
O'er which our venturous shallop' glide
Before the sweeping wind.
With trusty hearts, through night and day,
Till rook and shoal are past,
Keep "wait and watch," and ever pray,.
God help us to the last !
Mr 11‘1111Irr M•MTIMILAr
We passed the night on the 14th of A
pril, in our tents, just outside the town of
Jenin. Our dragoman had warned us of
the thievish character of the people of this
neighborhood, so that we had an eye to
such of our property as was lying about
while the tents were preparing. The
Governor called, had coffee, and appointed
four guards; so that we supposed ourselves
safe front robbery. But in the morning
the best mule was gone; and the four
guards declared themselves wholly unable
to say whey, how, and by whom, the ani.
mid was let loose from its fastenings, and
carried off. Our departure was delayed`;
the Governor was sent for, end a pretend•
ed. inquiry was made—a nd•this gave me
opportunity to walk about for an hour af
ter breakfast through the little town, through
ea orange grove, w here every tree was
white with blossoms, and up a neighbor
ing. bill, whence I sew, to my surprise, a
snowy mountain peak to the northeast--
This was the summit of Gebel Sheikh—
the mountain which closes the nprth end
of the valley of the Jordan, and then joins
on to the ranges of Atitilibanuc Prom my ,
point of View I could see, too, the bestutt
ful plain of Esdfaelon, which we were to
traverse this day; and the hills (0, the
neat?, which enclosed Nazareth, where we
Wiped to sleep . this night; and ,to the west
some tokens of the rise of a line of hills
which we should soon see swelling into
Mount Cannel, Where we were to go to
morrow. 'Whit a prospect lay before
both eye lOW tnind !
Our dragomen 'told ne we might make
ourselves easy about , oar Mule. He hid
no doubt it was in some stable die town.
We' Should be 'asked to leave a . tranleiiiir
behintivirtni — in'r - the an ma
would be delivered to him, with '1 dintimd
of a few piastres for the trouble or findin g
the mule on the mountains. It is probable
that matters' stood'eYae ly , 'se, ' for thif thule
teer followed in two days' with the'beast i
having paid fourteen piastreiftri , the trouble
of finding ,
Thus tar we have travelled only awe%
hills and valley* and to-daV welreartily
enjoyed otir ride over the ric'h plain of ps
draelon. It was fertile and floweryfroin
end to end; and the young partridges ran
under the very feet of my horse. Small
birds flitted in multitudes on every side, and
tall cranes stood among the high grass.—
The Cannel range grew upon the sight, as
we had expected ; and the blue hills of
Galilee closed in the view northward.- l i
Little Mount ilermon rose on our sight ;
and on its north acclivity lay the village of
Nair. rt. 'round hill, dropped over with
ohl oaks, was Mount Tubor. Villages
were well placed on such rising grounds
as there were amid the plains ; and our
track lay broad, and level, and green, a
mong rows of tall artichokes and patches
of rich cultivation.
When about two-thirds of the way over
we crossed the great caravan track from
Egypt to. Damascus. We had been to E
gypt, and we wore going to Damascus;

but we did not follow this track. We held
on northward to the,Galilean hills.
We entered among these hills about an
bour before we reached Nazareth, winding
up add dOwn, and around the base of one,
and the shoulder of 'another, sometimes
among seattered wood, semetiines over
stony tracts, and always in sight of many
goats. After mounting to a 'Very steep
pass, and coining to a well,' and winding
round a hill once more, we came suddenly
insight of pretty Nazareth. Its basin of
fertility is charming; its little plain, full of
gardens and groves and fields, surrounded,
as it seemed, completely The
town is, in fact, a poor one; but built cif
stone, and covering a good deal of ground, '
and extendinke little way_upiltaweetern
apes/. Ifroolii iiillrrom above.
Here, then, we n a il before our eyes the
scenery amid which Jens grew hp. Its
character cannot have changed very much
since his day. A fertile basin among the
everlasting hills, and the primitive little
town which they protect, must bear much
the same aspect from age to age. The
great .additiOS is the ;convent end church
of the Latin monks ; but these Wiling. do
not stand out offensively to the eyq, but
mingle well with the flat-roofed stone houses
of the town. in this convent we had to
take up our abode. We hinged to pitch
our'tenta on the green below the town ;
hut there Was apprehension of rain, and it
was thought better to go Tinder the con.
vent serif, Which is truly a hospitable one.
I do not know what it is Aunt the ser
vices of this church which is so affecting
to strangers; but I observe that all travel
lers speak of the strong emotions excited
here. Few believe that the places under
the church are what they are said to
Few believe that the little eaves shown by
the monks are the kitchen and sitting-room
of the, parent . of Jesus ;. and , that the spots
marked out by two granite pillows are
those where Mary and the angel sto od at
the time of the Annunciation. Ido not at
all believe that these places were thus con
secrated ; yet I. have seldom been so mo
ved as I was this afternoon in tire Church
of the Annunciation at Nazareth. We
were at least in the place of residence of
Jesus, and saw what he saw every day;
the hollows of the valleys, the ontlinea of
the hills, the streams in their coarses; and
the wild flowers, which every where on
the slopes spread under foot. We were
in the place which he called home. En
tering the church with these impressions
on our minds, we were saluted with a
chant from a full choir—a chant sonorous,
swelling, and elect ; the best music, in
comparably, that I heard abroad. It told
upon our very hearts.
Af course, we visited the rocky reeess
es below the church, which are called the
abode of Joseph and Mary; and saw no
reason to suppose that, while citizen* of
Nazareth, they lived in a grotto, rather
than a !mere. We were shown, too, a por
trait of Jesus, which the monks Relieve to
hive been copied from an original, taken
in his life time! As if there had been por
trait painting of that kind in those days !
And as if the Jews would have considered
it lawful, if there had ! Such ignorance on
the part of the monks prevents our relying
on any traditions given by them ; and I
will therefore say nothing of the other pla
ces pointed out as sacred by them. Naz
areth itself is sacred enough ; and it is
merely offensive to one's feelings to speak
of some of the strange stories the monks
telLimtl really believe,aboutlissus.and-his
family, in exhibiting what they declare to
be the scenes of his life and daily actions.
The next day, the uppermost feeling
throughout was of delight at the thought of
the natural beauty amid which Jesus was
reared. From the heights above the town
wo looked down into dells full of verdure,
and abroad over the rich plain we had
crossed the day before, and over toward
Carmel, where we were going to-day.—
We rode among the hills for two 'hours,
observing that clumps of feria& treat be
came more frequent, and that the scenery
was changing its character. And then we
entered upon a tract which was so like the
outakiris of an English nobledien'a perk,
that I could hardly believe we were in the
Holy Land. Rich grasses covered the
slopes and levels, and clumps of ilex wood

Ilere stood his four hundred and fifty

Next wo ascended the mountain itself ;
and we spent two nights in the convent on

onel, there' is nothing for us to do but
telecik thin business right in the face
and make the best we can of it. If there
was any Way to keep the thing out of sight
it would be, best for you to throw the
treaty into the fire as soon as you get it,
and send word on to Gineral Scott to go a
head agaia. But that is impossible ; it
will he spread ever the country and known'
to every body. And I'm convinced it will
be the best way for you to turn right about,
make out to be glad of what can't be help: j
ed, mid accept the treaty.
The nomina
tions for President is close at hand, and'.
You'inust get ready to go into the election
for your second term on what you've got,
mid make the bast show you can with it.
If yen should reject the treaty, the oppogi
lion Woidd get the advantage of you again ;
they would cry out that the Mexicans had
asked for peace and you had rtfusert it ;
Bad there would be no end to their growl:
ing•about this oppressive war of invasion.
But if you accept the treaty, it puts an end
to their grumbling/about the war.
r,) pacify our friends that are very eager
for the whole of Mexico, you must tell 'ein
to leek out and see how much we have al
ready got; keep telling of 'ein that half a
loaf is better than no bread ; tell 'em to
keep quiet till after your 'next election is
over, and may be you'll contrive some
plan to he cutting into 'tether half. Keep
Mr. Ritchie blowing the organ, all weath
ers, to the tune of Italia Mexico for a song.
Tell the whole country, and brazen it out
to every body, that you've made a great
bargain, a capital bargain, notch better than
Jell'erson made when he bought Louiatana
for fifteen millions of dollars ; tell 'cut for
the same sum of money you have got al
great deal more land. and more men on it.
Pin satisfied this is the best ground to take;
we mast go for the treaty. and, bitter pill
as it is, we must Swallow it as though we
loved it. I apse it will have to go before
the Senate, as the constitution now stands,
(the constitution is very detective on that
pint, and ought to be mended, fur it's dan
gerous trusting important matters to• the
Senate ;) but you must drive your friends,
all up to vote for it ; don't let it fail on not
