While all is dark and dress;

To het a Mend is near
One who through trials firm will stand
And yield a geberoue aid,
To bear above the storm, of time,
, A Wag God bath made.
We cannot claim a right to live
Aloof from others' woes,
And peas in splendid luxury
On to the grave's repose :
The wealth of earth may guild our path
And blind the rich mates eyes—

Whene'er the "hit flies I

And feel that life's Ant duty is
Our fellowship to lend
How moth of humeri woe would then
Be banished from our race I
ALL our acts would meet the smile
Of God's approving grace.
in vain the heart that goes astray
From virtue's seraph-guarded way
May hope that feelings just and free,
Meek peace, or firm integrity,
Or innocence with snowy vest ,
Will condescend to be its guest.
As soon within the viper's coil
Might pure and white-winged spirits dwell,
As soon the flame of vivid gleam
(Bow in the Chill and turbid sticani;
For by strong links, a viewless chain
Connects- our wanderings with our pain—
And heaven onlaina it thus, to show
That bands of vice are bonds of woe
Away ! away with the poimoned cup !
It bath no charms for me I
Fill, till to the brim the goblet cup
With water pure and free—
With water from the mountain rill,
i'parkling and cool, the goblet fill.
The wineciip you offer, tho' radiant and bright,
Is stainod by the sigh and tear ;
It may give to the palate a momenta delight,
But how soon will Its glow disappear !
Each moment of pleasure In followed by pain,
And we fly to the wine-cup for succor in vain.
Oh! give me the nectar, pure gashing and free,
From the fountain, the streandet, or rill:
Sweet emblem of truth, source oral! purity,

From thee will I draw inspiration—in vain

And oh! to breathe each tale we've heard —

Full oft a butter seed is sown
By choosing thus the kinder plan ;
For if but little good is known,
Still let us speak the best we can.
Oise me the heart that fain would hide— 4
Would fain another's faults efface ;
How tan it pleasure human pride
To prove humanity but base I
No : let us reach a high t r_mood,
A nobler eliluilife of man;
Be earnest in the search of good,
And speak of all the best we can.
Then speak no ill—lint lenient-be
To others' failings as your own ;

No lip may tell how brief its span;
Then, oh! the hula time we stay.
Let's speak of all the best we can.
[ A late number of Llouabey and Son contains
a passage that we think will be particularly inter.
eating to some of our madam. We would pre
mise that Florence—the abuse of her father hay:
ing swelled to a point beyond even her meek en
durance—has left the house f , and sought a
refuge at the "Wooden Midshipman," now kept by
Captain Cuttle. Walter has come back from
sea, and has been tack three or four days when
the following scene cavern:
"Florence had been weak and delicate
of late, and the agitation she had undergone
was not without its influence on her health.
But it was no bodily illness that affected
her now. She was distressed in mind;
and the cause of her distress was Walter.
Interested in her, axious for her, proud
and glad to servo her, and showing all this
with the enthusiasm and ardor of his char
acter, Floreuce saw that , ho avoided her.
All the long day through he seldom ap
proached her room. If she tusked for him,
he came again for the moment 'as earnest
and as bright as she remembered him
when she was a lost child in the staring
streets, but he soon became constrained—
her quick affection was too watchful not
to know it—and uneasy, and soon left her.
Unsought he never came, all day, between
the morning and the night. When the
evening closed in, he was always there,
and that was her happiest time, for then
she half believed that the old Walter of her
childhood was not changed. But even
then, some trivial word, look or circum
stance would ahnw her that there was an
indefinable division betwen !bent which
could not be passed. - •
And she could not but see that these,re-
Voillings of a great alteration in 'Walter
manifested themselves in despite of his ut
most efforts to hide them. in his oonsid
eration for her, she thought, sod in the
earnestness of hie desire to spate her any
wound from _hie PO hand, he resorted, to
innumerable 'Bide artifices and. 4 .141 pl
So muolt the more did ,Floreuee the

The good Captain—her untiring, tender,
overazealcius friOnd—saw it too, Florence
thought, and'it pained him. He' Was leek
cheerful and hopeful than he had been ai
Bret, and would steal looks at her and
Walter by turns, when., , then were all
three together of an elening, with quite a
sad face.
Florence resolved, at last, to speak to
Walter. She believed she knew now what
the cause of his estrangement was, and
she thought it would-be a relief to her full
heart, and set Nay more at ease, if she
told him she had found it out, and quite
submitted to it, anti did not reproach him.
It was on a certain Sunday afternoon
that Florence took this resolution. The
faithful Captain, in an amazing shirt collar,
was sitti%by her. reading with his spec
tacles on, and she asked where Walter
"I think he's down below, my lad_ y lass,"
returned the Captain.
should like to speak to him," said
Florence, rising hurriedly as if to go down
"I•ll rouse him up here, beauty," said
the Captain, "in a trice."
Thereupon the Captain, with much a
lacrity, shouldered his book—for he made
it a point of duty to read none but very
large books on a Sunday, as having a more
staid appearace ; and had bargained years
ago. for a prodigious volume at a book-stall,
five lines of which utterly confunded him
at any time, inibibuch that he had not as -

withdrew. Walter soon appeared.
"Capt. Cuttle tells me, Miss Dombey,"
he eagerly began on coming in—but stop
ped when he saw her face.
"You are not so well to-day. You look
distressed. You have been weeping."
He spoke so kindly, and with such a
fervent tremor in his voice, that the tears
gushed into her eyes at the sound of his
"Walter," said Florence, gently, "I am
not quite well, and I have been weeping.
I want to speak to you."
He sat down opposite to her, looking at
her beautiful ar , l innocent face ; and his
own turned pale, and his lips trembled.
"Yon said, upon the night when I knew
that you were saved—and oh ! dear Wal;
ter, what I felt that night, and what I
hoped !"
Ile put his trembling hand upon the ta
ble between them, and eat looking at her.
—"that I was changed. I wassurprised
to hear you say so, but I understand, now,
that I am. Don't be angry with me, Wal
ter. I was too much overjoyed to think
of it, then."
She seemed a child to him again. It
was the ingenuous, confiding, loving child
he saw and heard. Not the dear woman,
at whose feet he would have laid the rich
es of tho earth.
"You remember the last time I saw
you, Walter, before you went away ?"
He put his hand into his breast, and
took out a little purse.
"I have always wan it around my neck!
If I had gone down in the deep, it would
have been with me at the bottom of the

my old sake ?"
"Until I die !"
She laid her hand on his, as fearlessly and
simply, as if not a day had intervend since
she gave hiin the little token of remem

lect that a thought of this change seemed
to come into our minds at the same time
that evening, when we were talking to

"No !" he answered in a wondering tone.
"Yes, Walter. I had been the means
of injuring your hopes and prospects even
then. I feared to think so, then, but I know
it now. If you were able, then, in your
generosity, to hide from me that you knew
it too, you cannot do so now, although you
try as generously before. You do. I
thank you for it, Walter, deeply, truly;
but you cannot succeed. You have suf.
fered too much in your own hardships,
and those of your •dearest relation, quite
to overlook the innocent cause of all the
peril and affliction that has befallen you.
You cannot quite forget me in that char
acter, and we can be' brother and sister no
longer. But, dear Walter, do not think
that I complain of you in this. I might
have known it—onght to have known a—
but forgot it in my joy. All I hope is, that
you will think of me less irksomely when
this feeling is no more a secret one; and
all I ask is, Walter, in the name of the poor
child who was your sister once, that you
will not struggle with yourself, and pain
yourself, for my sake, now that I know
Walter had looked upon her while she
said this with a face so full of wonder and
amazement, that it had room for nothing
else.• Now he caught up the hand that
touched his. so entreatingly, and held it
between his own.
"Oh, Miss Dombey," he said, "is it
possible that while I have been suffering
so much in striving with my sense of what
is due to you, and must be rendered to you,
I have made you suffer what your words
disclose to me. Never, never, before
Heaven, have I thought of you but as the
single, bright, pure, blessed recollection of
my boyhood and my youth. Never have
I from the first, and never shall I to the
last., re(ard your part in my life, but as
something sacred, never to be lightly
thought of. never to be esteemed enough,
never, until death, to be forgotten. Again
to see you look and hear you speak, as you
did on that night when we parted, is hap.
pinata to me that there are no words to
utter; and to be loved and trusted as your
brother, is the next great gift I could.4*

earnestly, but with a changing face, "what
is that which ia due to me, and must be
rendered to me, at the sacrifice of all this I"

would ssy no mote, and her face dropped

They were both silent fora time; she
"I owe it to a heart so trusting, Pure
and good," said Walter, "even to tear my
self from it, though I rend my own. How
dare I say it is my sister's.'
See was weeping still.
"If you had been happy ; surrounded as
you should be by loving and admiring
friends, and all that makes the station you.
were born to enviable," said Walter, "and

I would have told you that it was the only
claim that you could give me to defend and
guard you, whioh I . dare accept and dare
assert—but that if I had that right, I would
regard it as a trust so precious and so price
less, that the undivided truth and fervor of
my life would poorly acknowledge its
The head was still bent down, the tears
still falling and the bosom swelling with its

could consider how presumptuous and
wild it was. One last time let me call you
by your own dear name, and touch this
gentle hand in token of your sisterly for
getfulness of what I have said."
She raised her head; and spoke to him
with such a solemn sweetness in her eyes;
with such a low, soft tremble in her frame
and voice that• the innermost chords of his
heart were ruched, and his sight was dim
as he listened.
"No. Walter, I cannot forget it. I
would not forget it for the world. Are you

"I am but a wanderer," said Walk ,
"malcing,voyages to live, across the sea.

and no one to forsake; but all my love
and life shall be devoted to you, and with
my last breath I will breathe your name
to God if I have sense and memory left."
Ile caught her to his heart and laid her,
cheek against his own and now, no more
repulsed, no more forlorn, she wept indeed,
upon the breast of her dear lover.

Do AS YOU aciaer-- T -There is no neces
sity of breaking your word. In the first
place, never promise anything unless you
know it to be in your power to fulfil; and
ih the seccond place, make up ybUr mind
before you promise, that whatever you do
promise you will fulfil. By so doing, you
will gain and enjoy the confidence of those
around you. When such a chancier is
established, it will be of more value than
ermine, gold or princely diadems.
A WORD.—Say not what you had bet-
ter leave unsaid. A word is a little thing
we know, but it has often occasioned bitter
strife. Suppressing the truth has ruined
many a character—many a soul. A word

sin. He is fifty-two years of age, about
six feet two inches in height, and one of
the finest looking men in the world.
Though somewhat stout, weighing from
two hundred,and twenty to two hundred
and forty pounds, he is so perfectly formed
as not to be at all unwieldy. There is

hitt a than borne to command. His calm
tenance and disposition are naturally pleas-
tint, though, from the multiplicity and
wei g ht of his cares, his temper is less a
greeable.than formerly.
The present form of government in Rus
sia is evidently the one best adapted to the
peculiar character and condition of the
people, but if Nicholas is spared a few
years longer, and succeeded by a man of
eqtral or superior ability, the people may
become fitted, in the course of fifty or one
hundietlyears, fur a constitutional govern
ment: In his domestic relations, the Ern
poor of Russia is extremely happy. His
children are amiable and well educated ;

hithself is one of the kindest husbands and
fathers in the world.

Mr. Editor:—The value of your excel
lent paper is greatly enhanced by its °col
umns being enriched with occasional essays
on topics of general interest, while chiefly
engaged injudiciously advocating the claims
of injured humanity. Thus you not entre
quently attract attention to the peculiar:Ml
vantages enjoyed by the salubrious and pic
turesque regions of Virginia and Tennes
see for wool growing. Permit me then
to suggest to your readers, among whom I
learn there are many Iron Masters, the re
lief that might now be afforded to that suf
fering branch of home industry, ifso admi
rable a material as laoN, was extensively
introduced into domestic architecture.
Hitherto, its high price has preventedite
being generally used in building. But when
we learn that the iron which commanded
$4O per ton a few months since, is now
without buyers at $24, we can conceive do
!good reason why our builders should send
Ito distant States for granite, or order the
brown "gingerbrepAratone at much higher
cost, which presents in one striking case,
the epectacle of a broken architrave threat
ening to fall on the heads of those who may
enter its door, even before the noble edi
has received its roof? We observe
that our ever watchful fellow-citizen, Ger.
and Ralston, affords some instructive sta
tistics as to the immense consumption of
iron in England, in the construction of how
sea, stores, churches, bridges, 4-c. at home,
and for export for similar purposes in In
dia, Africa and the West Indies. • Our I
ron Masters have added vastly to the pros
perity of our common country, enriching
the farmer and the operative by the inval
uable home market they have provided for
food and labour. We regret to learn that
the low price of Iron abroad has already
closed many of these greatest auxiliaries of
national prosperity ; and while orders for
$5,000,000 of foreign railroad iron have
been recently sent out, many more must
close their doors, unless new sources of
qmployment be found for this chief stable
of. Pennsylvania.
Happily, its peculiar value for building
purposes has been well ascertained ; fur
While granite and stone are highly danger.-
ous in case offire, and requireheavy outlays
for sculpture, if ornamented; the most
chaste and delicate designs may be repro
duced in iron a thousand times, at the
mere first cost of moulds; and after being
used for half a century, the value of the
material remains, to say nothing of its be
ing fire-proof in the highest degree.
We hear much of vast structures in sis
ter cities for 'Washington monuments—one
of them at least of hideous form. Why
not avail ourselves of the present low
price of Iron to construct the one contem
plated in our own beautiful Washington
Square, and founded by Lafayette, in
1824 ?" The dimensions of that Square
forbid a broad base, and the monument of
Sir Walter Scott, at Edinburg, fortunately
presents us with one of the most beautiful
models in the world for ours ; especially
if its delicate and exquisite tracery be re-•
produced in iron, which can be done at
one-fifth the cost of sculpture—casts' for
other editicea being thus secured at the
mere expense of founding. When'-we "
-may thus promote the welfare of thousands
of suffering fellow-citizens—develops the
vast minera resources of Pennsylvania,
and consequently diminish the great drain
upon our currency in payment of foreign
products similar to our own—add to the
