The Louisville Journal says: We defy any
tasteful lover of poetry to read the following
lines without exclaiming—" Mow beautiful!"
My soul thy sacred hinge keeps,
• My midnight dreams are all of thee ;
For.nature then in silence sleeps,
And silence broods o'er land and sea ;
Oh ; l4 t* still, mysterions hour
How on from waking dreams I start,
To find thee but a fancy flower,
Thou cherished' idcil of my heart,
Thou haat each thottght and dream of mine—
Have I in turn one thought of thine ?
Forever thine my dreatnewill be,
Whateer may *my fortune here ;
I ask not love—l 'claim from thee
Only one boon, a gentle tear ;
May e'er Wen visions from above
Play brightly round thy happy heart,
And may the heams of peace and love,
Ne'er from thy glowing soul depart,
Farewell I my dreams' are still with thee,
Hest thou one tender thought of me ?
, My joys like summer birds may fly,
Sly hopes like summer flowers depart,
But there's one flower that cannot die—
The holy memory in my heart ;
No dews that flowret's cap may fill,
No sunlight to its leaves be given,
But it will live and flourish still,
As deathless as a thing of heaven,
My soul greets thine, unmasked, unsought,
Hest thou for me one gentle thought?
Farewell I farewell I my far of? friend 1
Between us broad blue rivers flow,
And forests wave, and plains extend,
And mountains in the sunlight glow,
The wind that breathes upon thy brow
13 not the wind that breathes on mine.
The star beams shining ou thee now
Aru not the beams that on me shine.
But memory's spell is with us yet—
Caust thou the holy past forget ?
The bitter tears that you and I
May shed when'er by anguish bowed,
Exhaled into tho noon-tide sky
May meet and mingle in the cloud I
And thus, my well loved friend, though we
Far apart must live and move 1
Our souls when God shall set them free,
Can mingle in the world of :ova ;
This w as an ecstncy to me—
Say, would it be a joy to thee ?
Rev. Willets, of Philadelphia, in il
lustrating the blessedness of cultivating a
liberal spirit, uses this figure :
"See that little fountain yonder—away
yonder in the distant mountain, shining
likes thread of silver through the thick
copse: and sparkliug like a diamond in its
healthful activity. It is hurrying on with
tinkling feet to bear its tribute to the river.
Mee. tt passes a stagnant pool, and the
pool hails it : 'Whither away, master
siren mlet r '1 am going to the river to
hear this cup of water God has given. '—
Alt. you are very foolish for that—you'll
need it before the summer's ever. It has
been a backward
,spring, and wq shall hate

up then.' 'Well.' said the stroandet, 'if
am to die so soon, ,I had better work while
the day lasts. If lam likely to lose this
treasure from the heat, I had better do
good with it while I have it.' So on it
Ivent, blessing and rejoicing in its course.
The pool stuilod complacently at its own
superior foresight, and husbanded all its
resources, letting not a drop steal away.—
Noou the mid summer beat came down,
cud it feR upon the little stream. But
the trees crowded to its brink and threw
out their sheltering branches over it in the
day of adversity, for it brought refresh
ment and life to them, and the sun peeped
through tbo branches and smiled compla
cently upon its dimpled face, and seemed
to say, 'lee not in my heart to Kara you ;'
and the birds sipped its silver tide, and
sung its praises; the flowers breathed
their perfume upon its bosom; the beasts.
of the field seemed to linger nearits banks ;
the husbandman's eye always sparkled
with joy as he looked upon rho line of ver
dant beauty that marked its course through
his fields and meadows; and so on it went,
blessing and blessed of all
"And where was the 'prudent pool ?
Alas in its inglorious inactivity, it grew
sickly and pestilential. The beasts of the
field put their lips to it, but turned away
without drinking; the-brettze stooped and
kissed it by mistake, but shrunk chilled
away. It caught the malaria in tho con
tact, end carried:the ague through the re
gion, and the inhabitants caught it, and
bad to move away; and at last the very
frogs cast.their venom upon the pool and
deserted it, and Heaven, in mercy to man,
smote it w . ha hotter breath and dried it up.
"But d d not the little stream exhaust

emptied its full cup into the river, and the
river bore it on to the sea, and the sea
welcomed it,*and the sun smiled upon the

thought of its being necessary to have

or from some proper person to prove to
strangers that he was an honest and good

in deep thought, the captain meanwhile
curiously watching the working of his 'im

into his besom and drew out a little Bible,
and without one word put it into the cap

Captain 'McLeod was not a pious man,
but he could not consider the case before

The Dying Italian Mother's
The plague broke out in a little Italian
village. in one house the children were
taken first. The parents watched over
them, but only caught the disease which
they themselves cuuld not cure. The
whole family died. On the opposite side of
the way, lived the family of a laborer, who'
wus absent the whole week; only coming
on Saturday nights to bring his earnings.
His wife felt herself attacked by the fever
in the night ; in the morning she was
worst . ) ; and before night the plague spot
showed itself. She thought of the tern
ble fate of bei - neighbors— , She knew that
she must die, hut sti ahe !Coked upon her
dear little boys, she resolved 'hat to com
municate death to them. She therefore
locked the children in the room, snatched
the bed clothes, lest they should leave the
contagion behind her, and left the house.
She even dettied herself the sad pleasure
of a last embrace. Oh, think of the he.

est son saw her from the window. "Good
bye, mother," said be, with his tenderest
tone, for he wondered why his mother left
him so strangely. "Good bye," repeated
the youngest child, stretching his little
hand out oh the window. The mother
paused, her heart yearned toward her
children, and she was on the point of turn
ing back ; she struggled hard while the
tears rolled down her cheeks at the sad
sight of her helpless babes; at length she
turned from them. The children contin
ued to say, "Good bye, mother." The
sound sent a thrill of anguish to her heart,
but she pressed ou to the house of those
who were to bury her. In two days she
died, recommending her husband and

I stood on the steps o f the 'Aaron,
And gazed at the living tide
Of vehicles down the middle,
And people up either side.
And I saw a maid who was 'pumpkins,'

Jump down from the step of a carriage,
While her'robe 'got caught' in the rear.

SHOVELING UP DOI:LAM—The barque
Emily Banning, which left in Deceinher
last, with three of the Nautilus Submarine
Company's inaahine on hoard, bound on
a pearl-fishing voyage, is now engaged in
elploring the wreck of the frigate am
Pedro, on I dle cost of Venezuela. This
frigate, supposed to have no hoard some
two or three of dollars, was Wotan
up at the island VI a-g , irita in 1833.
Her stern being blown out, the treasure
wag scattered upon the surounding Sam,.
Some three hundred thousand dollars
have heretofore been taken up, but owing
to the inefficiency of the insellinerY rmi•
ploved, operations were suspended. The
company fitting out the Emily Banning
ordered her to atop there, and the trial de.
scent of the first machine, sent d'own in
66 feet of water, brought up one hundred
dnl!ars—thirty two dollars being found
within the area covered by the Ma .
chine, before moving. Other articles",
as caper. &a., were, brought up at the
,time. The captain, finding the advan
tage of combining the work, immediately
left for the seat of government to secure
the necessary privilege, which was gran.'
Letters have been received from on
board, during the absence of the captain,
which represent the operator's' “shoveling
dollars.' It is the impanel' of the com
pany to blow the fragments of the ship to
pieces, securing the' copper, guns, shots.
etc. The 'captain write/ :' "The bells are
all they are said to be." One'of the en
gineers writes : wish you eoulb look
nun the bell when we are down on the

almighty dollar. We can look out of the
windows of the boll and tee the fish loOk

in the bell. and get out on the sand, and
pick up the hell; and run all around where
we like." Two months; it is anticipated,
will be sufficient to take up every vestige
of the San Pedro ; and the captain reports
