CLEARFIELD, WEDNESDAY, EEBETJARY 20, 1850.
." ' . .-..IS IT COME!
Th fallowing is the poetu that attracted the at
to&tion of tho Marquis of Lansdowne, nndln.luccd
him to inako a present of 100 to tho authoress,
3life Frances Brown EJinburi Lcudex1 Own.
Jt it cone? they said on tha banks of tho Nile,
Who looked for tho world long promised day,
And saw' hut Uic strife of. Egypt's toil,
With tho desert's ennd and the granite grey.
From tho pyramid, temple and trcasurod dead,
Wa vainly ask for her wisdom's plan ;
They tell of tho Iavo and tho tyrant's dread
Yet thoro was hopo when that day began.
Tha Chaldee eatne with his starry lore.
That built op Babylon's crowu and creed ;
And bricks wore stamped on tho Tigris shore
With sign which our sages scarce can real.
From Jfinus' Temple and Xim'rod's Tower
The rale of the old East's empire spread
Unreasoning faith aad unquestioned power
But still, Is it come ? tho watcher said.
Tha light of the Persian's worshipped flame,
The ancient boDtlago its splendor threw;
And once on the west a sunrise came.
When Urcece to her freedom's trust was truo!
With dreams to the utmost ages dear,
With human gods and with godlike men ;
2?o marvel the far-off day seemed near
To eyes that looked through her laurels then.
Tha Romans conquered and rovelled, too,
Till honor and faith and power were gone ;
And deeper old Europe's darkness grew,
As, wave aftar wave, the Goth eame on.
Tba gown wag learning, the sword was law,
The people served in the oxen's stead ;
But ever soma gleam the Watcher saw,
And evermore, Is it coma? they said.
Poet and Seer that question eanght
Above the din of Life's fears and frets;
It marched with letters, it toiled with thought, -
Thro' schools and creeds which the earth forgets.
And statesmen trifle and priests deceive,
And traders barter our world away;
Yet hearts to that golden premise cleave,
And still, at times, Is it come ? they gay.
Tha days of tha nations bear no trace
Of all the sunshine so far foretold ;
Tha eannon speaks in the teacher's place
The age is weary with work and gold ;
And high hopes wither and memories wane
On hearths and altars the fires are dead ;
But that brave faith hath not lived in vain ;
And this is all that oar Watcher said.

TIIE ETIQUETTE OF VISITING.
BT THOMAS BIBS BRADLET.
My readers, there Is nothing more delightful
than visiting a pretty, bright-eyed woman, on a
pretty, starry night. I can tell you, a pretty
woman Is a good thing a devilish good thing
bonum ovum! A man n the presence of a
lovely lady should graciously thank Paovi
msce for His benignity in creating her. The
Rcler of the universe arranged all those beau
tiful curls on that pearly neck, that she might
ba- attractive and pleasant unto man. Those
rare lips and that snowy brow, and those heav
enly eyes, and that swelling bosom were grant
ed to her to render her a suitable- partner for us.
In our visits to her, then, let us remember it,
and bow obedient to the shrine ot her beauty.
Of course, every gentleman more or less fre
quently visits the ladies. Not to do so argues
him unqualified for the balmy atmosphere of a
lady's parlor, and unsuited for the sweetest
pleasure of this short existence. The man who
has no friends among tho women is in a sad po
eition. Than to be such a man, I would prefer
to b suspended by a hair over tho cliffs of Do
ver, or navigating tho Arctic Ocean in a ca
noe. Even animals are sociable: pigs confab
ulate, and swine are capable of sustaing a con
versation. Elephants visit each other, and al
ligators enjoy evening entertainments. Horses
indeed have an established code of etiquette
In therr chit-chats. In fact, I once knew a silly
beast who associated (by accident purely) with
refined horse-company until he imagined him
self an excellent riding animal, and full of spi
rit. Tho consequence Was, ho rendered him
self ridiculous on all occasions by bis intoler
erablo vanity and abominablo attempts at the
Imitation of his superiors.
If fondness for company is thus truo of the
lower animals, how much moro true of man.
The great question to bo considered then, is
bow to render society and even a single visit
pleasant and profitable. In the first place, it is
generally conceded that no one should be
present at any entertainment, public or private,
or visit any fair lady, or in any manner what
soever protrude himself upon genteel compa
ny, who cannot contribute his share to the in
tcrcst of the occasion. Such a rule excludes
boys with sbirt-collars three inches high, and
skull six inches thick ; It demolishes dandies,
and depopulates the whole tribe of spccklc-fa-
ccd nihilities. It gives decent men a chance,
and consigns to their merited oblivion all rcd-
eyed boobiesr Such a rule works cogently, and
4s a good thing a devilish good thing bonum
; orum. It should be generally adopted in this
'benighted country. The dominron of boydom
would be over ; it would breathe its last sigh
gently as a sick hen. Misses in their facetious
teens would no more snicker and blush even
to their eye-brows at tho compliments and stu
pid flatteries of some sentimental, kid-gloved,
liook-nosed little gallant. Their flounces and
furbelows would infest a ball-room or private
party no more ; JN satinets, and Jaconets,
and bobinets womrnet no more minnows ; I
ay minnows, for trout don't bite at small
baits. They arc sensible fish, and know how
lo appreciate a good thing.
Such a rule, if adopted, would accomplish
another great desideratum in all goodly socie
ty. It would destroy with a keen and wither
ing frost thoao rare exotics which silently
bloom in their quiet simplicity. I refer to tho
specios wall-flowers. Now they are indeed
placid plants, quite content to waste their
sweetness uponthe desert air, but they always
ly sensible to woo her in the prosonco of oth
ers, jjonum otum !
