Life without Hope 1 Oh, (hat ia not To live! but, day by day to tot, With feelings cold and pasions dead : To wander o'er the world, and tread Upon its beauties ; and to gaze, Cjuita vacant, o'er ita flowery maze. Oh, think if thia be Life! then say, "Who lives when hope is fled away 3" Youth without hope ! An endless night. Trees which have felt the cold apiing'a blight. The lightning's flashes and the thunder's suife, Yet pine away a weary life, Which older would have sunk and died Beneath the stroke their youth defied Dut curst with length of days, are left To rail at Youth and Hope bereft. And Beauty, too, when Hope is gone Has lost thu rsy in which it shone; And seen without this borrowed light, Has List the beam which made it bright. Now what avail the ailken hair. The angel smile, and gentle air. The beanving eye ; and glance refined Faint semblance of that purer mind As gold dust sparkling in the sun, Point where the richer strata run I Alaa ! they now just seem to be bestowed to mock at Misery.

The latest account of tho un rtunate girl ia in the following evidence given be e Justice Paikcr day bcfoi e yesterday. We co- from the Journal of Commerce. "Cabi or Maht J. Rookrs. Daniel C. Payne, No. 47 John alreel, cork cutter, went yesterday the Police Office, at the request of Justice Par r, to give any information lie might possess, or lich might tend to throw any light upon the die pearance of Miss Mary C. Rogers, said to have en murdered at Hoboken, and made the following dements s I have known Mary C Rogera rice October or November las-t, at which time I entto board at her mother's, at No. 126 Nassau eet During my day :bere, (which waa until tibia a few da) a of the time Mrs. Rogers gave up eping boarders, ) myself and Miss Rogers formed attachment for each other, the result of which is, that we were engaged to be married. The it time I saw her waa on Sund.iy morning, the th July last. About the hour of ten o'clock on that morning, was busy shaving myself in my room, when she roe and knocked at my door ; upon which I open I the same, when she told me that she was go g to Mrs. Downing'a, when I replied, very well, err. I shall look out for vu in the evening. At ia time she appeared cheerful and lively as usual, During the time that I had been acquainted with er she had been at Mra. Downing'a some three or iur timea to my knowledge; and on two occasions. s she returned from there, I had waited for her a iut dark, on the corner of liroadwiiy and Ann rcet, until the alighted from an omnibus, and then alked home with her. Mra. Downing live in me street, No. 63. I did not go to the corner of nn street and Brosdwsy on this occasion to wait ir her, a I had done before, on accouut of a very eavy storm coming on about dusk, and I feeling t my own mind that aha would not leave Mr, owning' that night, but remain there aa aha had one on anothei occasion. Upon loaving the house sal morning, which waa about 11 o'clock, 1 ralked directly to my brother's John Payne's, iu rVarren street, No. 33, and remained in bis couipa ly until one o'clock, part of the lime in the house ind part of the time out. When out of the house, went to Scott' Bazaar, in Dey atieet, where we emaiued until about one, when we left there and talked np to Broadway and parted company near iu Paul'a Church. I then walked up into James itreet.al Mr. Bickford'a and read the newspapers jntil about 2 o'clock, and then came down, and ook my dinner at Go.liri's eating house, in Fulton treet. I then went home, and at three o'clock waa lying on ray bed, and remained ihrre until a wul ail o'clock, when I dressed myself and walked down to the Battery, and remained there until a- bout a ouarter Dat aeven o'clock. When I left, a any brother was coming off the Battery with hi ;hildren, to whom I epoke for moment or two and then parted. I walked up Broadway, aud when near Ann atreet, noticed a storm was fast coming, up, and thinking it waa too early to go to, Ua, I walked up to Bickford'a, in 4mea atieet, and re mained there until nine o'clock, and then want 9oic and imifea1 for the ni.bt. 1 impression that the omnibusse run on Sundays, and had the weather been clear, I ahould hive waU ted for Mary on the corner of Ann atreet and Broad way, aa uaual. I have never known Mary, since I have been in the house, to keep company with any poison but myself, and do not know of her ever having any male person to casually call upon her. Her habits were very domestic, she scarcely ever leaving the house, and I do not think that she ever left the house in company with any other person but myself. Daniel Payne, on hia further examination, said t "On my return home on Sunday evening, about the hour of 9 o'clock,! waa asked by Mrs, Hayes, the aunt of Mary, who waa in the house, and who had come there after I left at 6 o'clock, where Mary was, when I replied that the had gone to Mrs. Duwning's, when Mra. liayea replied that her mother was very much alarmed about her, and had gone to her house, (that ia Mra Hayes' hquse,) to enquire f her. Nothing further upon the subject of Mary'a absence then passed between us, excep ting that Mrs. Hayes made the remark, that she supposed that she would be home in the morning. Mrs. Hayes then offered me a light to take to my room, I declined it, stating that I alwaya went in the dark. When I took my breakfast on the fol lowing morning, Mrs. Roger remarked that Mra. Hayes had gone home to her house to aee if Mary waa there, and waa to return immediately aud let me know. I then went to work, piesumiug, if all waa not right, that they would lot me know at the shop. I heard nothing more until I returned borne to my dinner, and then heard that she had not been either at Mra. Downing'a or Mra. Hayes', at which the family were much alarmed. I then commenced searching for her, and in the first place went t Mra. Pitcher's," st Harlem, and maJe enquiry there lor her, when they informed me aha had n ;i been there, Thia waa the only place that I knew of her being acquainted out of the family. I next went to W illiamsburg to search for her. I did not know ny one there, and had no reason for going there ny more than any other place, but thought I must make a general enquiry, and the next day procee ded to Hoboken, also to btaten Ialand, and also crosied over the South Ferry, and enquired of dif ferent peraona at all I hone places, if they had seen ny porson of her description, describing her to tbem. On the evening of the same dsy, 1 carried an advertisement to the Sun newspsper, respecting her absence, Ac. On tho following day, Wednesday, I made fur ther enquiry and aearched for her, and first of all called upon the keeper of a public house, on the corner of Duane and William atreets, kept by Gal as, owing to a note having been received at the house, by the mother, without signature, that they could tell something about ber when on enquiry, ascertained that a young girl had called there and remained in company with a young man for three hours', but lite description of this girl did not at II answer the description of Mary, and not only ao, the girl who was theie they stated waa in the prac tice of chewing snuff while she was there, and was dressed in blue. I then proceeded to Hoboken, it being between 9 and 10 o'clock, and made enqui ry about Hoboken, and also along the ahore, as far as the Elysian Fields House. I did not make any inquiry at the last mentioned house, but did before got there. I inquired for her at the ferry, and three limes between the furry and the house. These inquiriea were made of two different persona whom I casually met on the road, and at a public house close to Van Buskirk'a, but obtained no trace of her whatever. I then teturned to the city about I or 2 o'clock, and in the afternoon went to my store, but did not go to work, and returned home again about 'clock. After having been in the house about a quarter of an hour, a gentleman, whose name I was infor med by him waa Luther, and residing at No. 90 Chambers at, came into the dining room, where myself and others were sitting, and informed me that a body had been found by him in the water near Hoboken. which he supposed, from the des cription of the dress, to be the body of Miss Rogers, who had been advertised in the newapafier. I did not go to Hoboken to iudentify the boJy at that time nor since. Before I waa out of my bd on the following morning, Mr. Urommelin came in and informed the family, that he had been to Hobokan, and the body there found was the body of Msry. I think it was about half past six (he afterwards said five o'clock) in the morning wheu I arose. Mr. Crommelin al so informed ua that th inquest had been held the night before, which did away with any necessity for myself or the family going to Hoboken. We ate very much surprised to note that this testimony is passed over by severs! New York jnurnala witn Hie opinion irjai homing important waa elicited from the witness. Now it appeara to ua that very grave queationa aiiae upon aifling the statement of Mr. Payne, involving nothing Use than a suspicion that he baa not told a peifcctty re aonable atory. Cautiously aa such a autpicion ahould be mentioned, it ia neveithelci right to, ut ter it upon proper grounds. These are presented by the New york Star, p which find the ai ueied comment Upon Mr, ray ne'e testimony. 'Narration of Mc, Payne before the police offi cers, containa ataleinenu and admisaiona which ahould lead to fuilhei aciutiny and examination. Ha aays they U.tn tngagrd to It married, and ha waa a boarder In the houso of her mother, where he slso had resided up to the moment she left the house on the morning of her mysterious disappear ance and deatruction. He it the last perton who aaw her there on that fatul day. He aays, "the tame up stairs and knocked at my door'' He opened it, and found her dressed for a walk. She said she wst going to see Mra. Downing. lie said very well he would "come for her in the evening." The statement in an another paper ia that, he said "Very well, Mary, I will look out for ye-n in the evening." If either be correct, here is a positive engagement to meet her to whom he was affianced, and which was not likely to be broken under aucb cirouinslancea without any reasonable cause. He snys that "from 11 o'clock, A.M. until t, P. M. he was at hia brother's, or went with nim to the Dey st. Bazaar. He then walked up Broadway, and thence to Bickford'a, in James street, until 2 o' clock then went to Fulton street and dined at an eating house ; went home about 3, and laid down until six, P. M, when ha walked to the Bat tery." The jtietion may be here asked l Why did he pass hia own (warding house (kept by Mary'a mo ther) to dine at an eating house, in Fulton street, but a block from her own residence 1 And again, an important question may be suggested : From 3 to 6, when he allegea he waa at the house, was he seen by the mother or any of the family ! Or was he there without his usual intercourse with them for it must have been about their usual tea time. At 8, he aaya bo walked to the Battery, and re turning, on reaching Ann atreet, (which ia but a few doors from hia boarding house,) he saw the storm gathering, and walked to Bickford'a in Jamea atreet (a distance, perhapa, over half a mile,) and ataid there until 9 o'clock and returned and retired (or the night. i ne two hours ot this awlul thunder storm are important, and his whereabouts ahould be moat sat- isfactorily ascertained, and ao ahould every hour of that melancholy dsy. lit knew where the had ffene, of which even her mother toot ignorant. He bod promised to meet her in the evening ; he went to the Battery at the very lime be should have taken the contrary direction to fulfil hia en gagement with her who had confided herself to him, and at Ann street he turns off for Bickford'a, when in the same space of time he could have nearly leached her, and thus shown reasonable solici tude for her. In the searches he made for her, it does not ap pear that he held any consultations with her mo ther or friends, as to the places ihey might deem proper to be aeniched. After searching for her at Harlem, Williamsburg and Hoboken, without auccesa, he was afterwards "informed by Mr. Lu'ber, of No. 90 Chambera atreet that Mary had been Jound at tluboken. and an inquest was to be held," but aa did hot ao to HoaoKsa hi attssd th iriii-kst. A Mr Crommelin went. And can it be that he waa so lofct to all feelings of humanity of affection for her who waa his betrothed of a regard for the a11 c lions of her aged, widowed mother that he could remain, aud not rush to the spot and call down the vengeance of Heaven upon the ae.lucer end mur deier. It requires more explanation than has yet been given. Is there not in the above suggesliona sufficient ground for examining this witness again and call ing upon win to euoieniiale bis statements I ills conduct, according to hia account waa to aay the least very extiaordinary from first to last, aud re quires explanation. Colloquy. Soon after the revolutionary war, Capt. P., brave Yankee officer. Waa at St. Petersburg, in Ruaaia, and while there, accepted an invitation to dine there waa a large number at the table, and among the rest an English lady, who wished to ap pear one of the knowing onea. Thia lady on un derstauding that an American was one of the guests, expressed to one of her friend a determination to quia him. She fastened on him like a ligreas, ma king many enquiries respecting our habita, customs, dress, manners, and mode of life, education, musements, etc. Ac. J o all inquiriea, Capt. P gave an answer that satisfied all the company, ex cept the lady; ahe waa determine-! not to be satis lied, and the following abort dialogue took place: iAidy. have the lich people in your country any carriagea 1 for I suppose there are aome that call themselves rich. Capt. P. My tesidence is in a small town up on an Maud, where, there are but a few carriage kept, but in the Urge towns and citiea upoo the J main land, there are a n nber kept iu style suited to our republican manners.

I can't think where you find driver for I ahould not thiiil ihe Americans knew how to drive a coach, Capt, ,We find no difficulty on that account, "fVain ; we ean have plenty of drivers by aendiug to tni'iand for them. Larfy. Speaking vary quickly. I think the A m ricans ought to drive tho English instead of the English driving the Americans, Capt. J'. We did, madam, in the lato wart but aiuce peace, we permit the Euglish to drive us ! The lady half choked with anger, elood mute a minute, and then left the loom whispering to her friend the Yankees are too much lor ua in the esbltt, aa well as in the field. The Tery Latest. In these days of trouble, the necessi ties of men have prompted almost eve ry method ot raising the wind, bo many queer ways have been reported, that we had concluded there was no means of gouging which remained un covered. But acknowledge our error: mortal ingenuity lias made another im provement in rascality and impudence. A simple minded and honest country man wniic walking upon the levee yes terday, observed a well dressed gentle- r i . , . . man, a few yards in advance of him drop his pocket book. lie picked it up and hailed the careless stranger, who turned with apparent surprise and wai ted until the other approached. 'Isn't this your pocket book (" said the countryman. "I thought I saw you drop it" "Well, mv soul it is, I owe ten thou sand thanks ; you are an honest man. There is a large amount of money here, and had I lost it beyond recovery I should have been ruined for ever." The worthy rustic was delighted be yond conception. The feelings of deep gratification which always arise in consequence of performing a praise worthy action, were much increased by the thanks so plentifully bestowed upon urn. "Ninetv-nine persons in every hun dred," said the loser of the pocket book, would not have acted as vou have done. I feel compelled to evince my gratitude in a substantial manner you must permit me to make you a pres ent of twenty dollars" He fumbled over the roll of notes, and said : "l have nothing smaller than a fifty dollar bill ; can you give mc thirty dollars in change?" "O yes, easy," said the other. The transaction was completed and the poor dupe walked away, not a lit tle elated with his good lortune. 1 wo hours afterwards, the unfortunate coun tryman was arrested for attempting to pass a fifty dollar counterfeit note. It is almost needless to add that it was the note he had received from his worthy friend, who so strangely dropped hfs pocket book. N. O. Picayune The Meeting. We have already stated that six fe males, rescued from the "William Brown," had arrived at Germantown, their place of destination in this neigh borhood. Y c are told that one of the company was not of the family that had come to make rtieir home in German- era town. iite was a young woman whose mother fourteen years before had come from Scotland to this coun try, and the daughter thought she had only to come to America to find her pa rent. 1 heir common sufferings had attached her to the other five females, and they took up their abode in Gcr- mantown, the young woman ascertain ing very soon that she was not likely to find her mother quite as ready as she had supposed, bhe accordingly look cd about for work to earn her living Shortly after her arrival, she was visi ted, among many others, by an elderly lady lrom JVlanayunk, w ho came to en quire after the rescued sufferers gener ally, and to hear more particulars of those who were lost with the ship and from the boat. Having heard the oft repeated story, the old lady ventured to make one particular enquiry "Was Mary on board the William Brown1?" "Yes, she was." The next question dropt tremulously from her lips: was she saved : "Yes, I am she." "My child !" exclaimed the mother. And so the o'd lady supplied her aaugnier wi., a home, which she Was about Uj earn among strangers. U. S. Gazette. Crane's Patent Twelve Moxtus Clock. A model specimen of this Clock is now at the house of Mr. Van Boskerck (Congress Hall) for public in spection. They require no more space, weight or strength of spring than eight day clocks t will run one year without once winding up ; are perfectly silent other than striking the hour. i he whole simple, easily adjusted and re gulated, and when so, the time will not bo altered as in other clocks, by wind ing, by the difference of temperature, or by an increase of friction or weight, a desideratum in time keeping which has long been sought, and next in import- ance to the first discovery of the pende- mm l F'atArin I Irttftf Revolutionary Anecdotes. It is well remembered that a reward of 500 was offered for the head of John Hancock. When he signed the Declaration ot Independence, he did it wmi a ooid nana, in a conspicuous manner, and rose lrom his scat, point ing to it, and exclaimed, "There John Bull can read my name without spec tacles; ho may double his reward, and 1 put him at dchance. When I visited Mr. Adams in lo- vembcr, 1818, his hand trembled simi- I. ci if i - .u- r..i I lar to Stephen Hopkins, tho Quaker i patriot ot Khode Island, who had been afflicted with a paralytic stroke. Mr. Adams acted as his amanuensis, and asked him if he should sign his name to trie Declaration of Indepenaence fori him. He replied, "Nol 1 will sign itl myself, if wo are hung for signing it, you shall not be hung for signing it lor me. Mr. Adams, then in imitation of Hopkins, took his pen, clasped his wrist with his left hand, went through the tremulous motion of signing his name, I and in the language ol Hopkins, empha tically said, "if my hand trembles, John I liull will find my heart won tt which, Mr. Adams said, electrified all Con gress, and made tho most timid firm in their purpose. A Illvcr ou Fire. It can no longer be doubted that the Alabamians are waking up, as it will appear, by the following article, that they have succeeded in setting their principal river on fire: lOMDlUBEE KlVER O.f r IRE. While Mr. J. M. Cooper wasprosecu ting the removal of McGrcy's Shoals, after boring to the depth ol 375 lect his auger suddenly dropped and entirely disappeared. In the space of several moments a deep hollow sound was heard, resembling the rumbling noise of distant thunder from the chasm be low, and at the samo instant gushed forth from the shaft thus made a clear transparent, oleagenous substance or liquid, which toils up very similar to the effervescence of a boiling pot ; and owing to the sluggishness of tho cur rent, has gradually diffused itself over the surface of the river. A quantity has been collected, and upon applica tion of fire, it is found to burn equal to the present sperm oil. 1 o gratify curiosity and make further tests, fire has been applied to the oil on the water, and the whole surface of the river is now burning, emitting a flame of most beautiful appearance, about C inches high, and has already extended about half way down to Fort Stoddard, the reflection of which upon the lion zon at night, presents a most sublime spectacle far surpassing in grandeur and beauty of appearance the aurora borealis. I Mobile Journal. A Xatural Curiosity A late English paper recommends all w ho are fond of seeing the freaks of nature, to gratify their penchant by pac ing a visit to Master T. Jones, the "por cupine youth," as it facetiously terms him, exhibiting at the Losmorama Rooms. This singular production of nature is a healthy and interesting youth, about ten years of age, and three feet three inches in height, with the exception of nts lace ana uic paims oi ins nanas, nis whole body is covered with dark homy thorns, resembling the coat of a hedge hog or porcupine. Ihey are very thickly set, and at stated periods come off gradually without the feast ptun ; in deed, thev may be cut or burnt off with out iniurv. The roots remain in the flesh, and grow again by degrees, in- creasing to the length of half an inch, underneath which, the skin is soft and healthy. The youth is of Welsh pa rents, and the youngest of ten children, all of whom, except himself, have a fair and clear skin. Ihe appearance is si milar to that caused by the plica polo nica, a disease well known in l'oland. The Indian's opinion or the Book of Mormon. An old Indian having at tended a Mormon meeting, and heard one of its advocates extol Mormonism ; was requested to give his opinion of its merits. lie began by detailing the great good which had been done by the Bi ble, of which God was the author. And said he, the devil, seeing this, dctcrmi ncd that ho would have a Bible of his own, rind, accordingly, he wrote the book of Mormon.
