Oh, there's not a trade that's going, ..,
Worth showing or knowing,

" For a bowld sojer boy !

'" Sure you know, friend or foe,'
' " Will have hand or toe, . ' '
Trom the bow Id sojer boy. .
... There's not a town we march thro'
Bat ladies looking arch thro
The window panes will sarch thro'
The ranks to find their joy, .
While op the street each girl yon meet,
With look so sly, will cry. -My eye,
Oh isn't he a darling, tha bowld sojer boy !"
Bet when we get the rout,
' ' " ' How they pont and they shout, .
While to the right about.
Gees the bowld sojer bay.
"T'is then that ladies fair,
In despair tear their hair,
But the divil a one I care.
Says the bowld sojer boy :
For the world is all before us,
Where the landladies adore as,
And ne'er refuse to sjore us,
But chalk us up with joy.
We taste her tap. we tear her aay,
Oh, that's the chap for me." ssys she,
"Oh, isn't he a darling, the bowld sojer boy !"
Then come along with me,
Gramashree, and you'll see, ..
y j How happy you. will be, ,
With your bowld sojer boy. . '
faith if you're up to fun,
With me run, 'twill be done,
. In the snapping of a gun,.
Says the bowld sojer boy. , -
And 'tis then that without scandal,
Myself would proudly dandle,
The little farthing candle.
Of our mutual love my joy. ;
May his light shine, as bright as mine,
, Till in the line he'll blaze and raise, . :
. The glory of his corps, like a bowld sojer boy.

The adventitious people didn't bring the
world's end about . so easy as they thought,'
aid Mrs. Partington, smiling at the recollec
tion of saeing along-legged saint in a white
cotton gown on the top el a neighboring house
the night before. . ...
Yes, replied Old Kogsr, zravely, 'it did
come to an end; it sa?pendL'd for alittlcvrhile.
when a meeting of its creditors was held, and
thong!; its affairs were fonnd a little shaky, It
was thoughJjest to let it go on, and it would

ued she, raising. ters'pecsj , ,",U I'.only weighed
just live pounds when it was born!"
La, rae! why, I want to know,"; cried out
Mrs. Smith, in amazement.
"Why, Mrs. Fergerson,",'said Mrs. Turtle
dove, ' that's nothing to tell on. There is
Rachel Skinner's child, that did'nt only weigh
just four pounds and a half when it was torn."
"Goodness, gracious me? Why you don't
say so," ejaculated Mrs Fegerson.
"Sartin," here remarked Mrs. Hopkins,
and that ain't much to tell on either. Why

Eccextkic Female. In the county of Har
risson, Mississippi, lives a female hermit a
curiosity, indeed, of her sex, because prone to
solitude and silence. She lives in a house
the fabric of her own hand3, cultivates her
own fields, splits her own rails, does her own
fencing, and the present autumn she wj'.l have
one hundred bushels of corn to sell, and a
f-.w hundred bushels of potatoes, all the pro
duct of her own unaided and indomitable la
bors! She lives alone no husband, nor chil
dren, nor neighbors nearer than three miles.

A Poivted Reply. One of the most remar
kable replies we remember ever to have heard,
is attributed to Mr. OitHou',' the barrister.
Seme one in his hearing used hackneyed sear
casm, that heetween the churches of England
and Rome there is but a pajer wall. "True,"
said he; "but the whole BiM. is printed on it."

C?Why is I'resident Pierce like the globe
which we inhabit T 1
Because,' although he was thought at fiistto
be perfect 1n his epbere, !fr fs now known he
l af..tidnMy'jlatUmtd at th Poll." ; j
PresiJont Pierce commences his annual
Message to Congress with thanks to Provi
dence for protecting care and merciful deal
ings with us as a people. The convulsions
which shake Europe claim an individual sym
pathy ; whatever checks the prosperity ol any
part ol Christendom involves our own, as
States, like men, are mutually dependent. It
has, therefore, been his earnest endeavor to
maintain peace and friendly relations with all.
The wise theory of avoiding entangliug alli
ances has exempted our government from ma
ny complications, but an increasingdisposition
has been manifested by some European powers
to supervise and direct onr foreign policy, and
to constrain us to adopt their views in adjust
ing their balance of power. The United States
can recognize no such interpolations of the
established principles of international law, as
temporary interests may suggest. This- has
created distrust and occasional acts of disturb
ing etfect upon our foreign relations; but our
past and present history shonli give unques
tionable assurance that our purposes are not
aegressive or dangerous to other nations; our
policy is essentially pacific.
Europe is invited to look at home before she
carps at our territorial expansion; she has no
plea to growl at the legitimate exercise of sov
ereign rights, when she has absorbed whole
kingdoms, and claims control over "all the
world and the rest ol" mankind." -
Having become equal to the first maritime
power of the earth, our foreign commerce
must be carefully supervised and protected.
War in Europe endangers neutral rights, and
looking to the cherished doctrine that free
ships make free goods, except when contra
band of war, a proposition has been submitted
to the European powers, embracing this doc
trine, and that neutral property, not contra
band, on enemy's ships, shall be exempt from
confiscation. Russia promptly agreed to adopt
these as a principles of international law; the
other powers have not nctod finally, though no
known objections have been urged. The two
Sicilies are readv to enter such a convention,
and Prussia approves it too, but wants the re
nunciation of privateering also, to which we
cannot listen, as privateers would be as indis
pensable to us, in the aosenco ol a large n.ivv,
as volunteers for land service, having no large
army ; but we are willing to meet Europe on
the ground of exempting private propertv from
seizures by public oruizers as wt-l! as privateers.

A joint commission is recommended to set
tle the boundary line between the Territory of
Washington and the British possessions on
the Pacific, which has led to difficulties, but
can be amicably adjusted.
Explanations, which it is hoped will be satis
factory, have been made to France, relative to
her Consul at San Francisco, no disrespect hav
ing leen implied. France has unequivocally
denied any design to deny the right ol transit to
Minister Soule; and he has resumed his jour
ney through her territory. The correspond
ence on this subject is laid before Congress. ..
Affairs with Spain remain in statu quo it is
thought her present ministry are more favora
bly inclined to comply with our just demands,
restore Irirmony and preserve peace.
It is proposed t give notice to Denmark of
our intention to terminate the treaty of 182"5,
with a view to claim exemption froau payment
ol Sound tolls, which arc impliedly agreed to
in that tieaty, and provides that our vessels
shall pay no higher duties thau those of the
most favored countries.
The expedition to Japan has been success
fully terminated, a treaty negotiated, and it
is necessary to exchange ratifications and
adopt commercial regulations.
The unsettled state of Mexico has embar
rassed our legation iu its earnest endeavor to
procure & settlement for new cases ef wrongs
and injuries to our citizens. All effective
measures hrve been taken to frustrate, lawless
enterprises and hostile expeditons against the
Mexican States.

line between the United States and Mexico,

azonism pending negotiations with Brazil, it is
hoped will eventually reach a favorable result.
It is enforced as the duty of government to
secure the transit of the isthmus against all
danger of insurrection. All perplexing ques
tions existing between us and Great Britian,
concerning inter-oceanic coTiiiuiinic itions were
supposed to be adjusted by the treaty )f Sept. j

Grevtown was dvmoIihed as a piratical re
sort. Those nations who complain more
harshly than justly of this proceeding, have
punished less olfending and more defenceless
places than Grey town with greater severity,
and with roc'.iless sacrifice of human life.
The amount of revenue for the fiscal year
from all sources was $73,540,705, and the ex
penditures, exclusive of pavments on account
of the public debt, $51, 018,259. Tl.epaymeJits
in redemption of public debt, including inter
est and premium, were 21 ..336.380. At the
commencement of the year. ther.j wasa balance
in the treasury of $21,912,802, and at the close
$27,137,967. The recipt.s of the current year
are estimated to exceed the expenses bv at
least $15,O0,t00, and therefore the public debt
will be paid off judiciously and economically
as fast as possible. The outstanding debt is
$4 ,9 j,4 36, redeemable within fourteen years.
The recommendation for a reduction on the
duties of imports, is renewed, as the reduction
of duties, lor revenue and not protection, may
be regarded as the policy of the government.
Out going officers should be compelled to de
liver up lwoksand papers, to prevent fr.iuds.c.
An increased force in the Indian Territory
is demanded. Two new regiments of ifantry.
and two of mounted men are called for to
meet present emergencies. An increase and
reorganization of the Navy is advised. The
existing laws for the maintenance of dicipline
at sea, are presouted for consideration.
The" Post Office expenditures for the year
ending June 3 amounted to SS,710. 0'i7, and
the receipts Sa,955,5S6. showing a deficiency
of S2,753.321, andadiminutioo ol deficiency as
compared with the previous year of 8381.756.
