In the enormnc. as he emer'd the hill

I'll co to my tower on the Rhine," replied he,
' Tis the safest place in tiermany ;
The walls are high, and shores are steep.
And the stream is strong, and the water deep."
Bishop Hallo fearfully hasten'd away,
And he crossed the Rhine without delay.
And reatb'd his tower, and bari'd with rare
All the windows, doors, and loop holes there.
He laid him down and closed his eyes
But soon a scrpsm made him arise ;
He et-rted, and saw two ryes of dame
On bis pillow, from whence the screaming came.
Hp listen'd and look'd it was only the cat ;
But Ihe Hi-hop he grew more fearful for that ;
For she sat screaming, mad with fear
At Ihe army of rats that were drawing near.
For thev have swam over the river so deep,
And they have climb' J the shores so steep.
And up Ihe lower their way is bent.

Such numbers had never been hearj of befo'e ;

Down on bis fcnees the Bishop Ml,
And faster and faster his beads did he tell.
As loader and louder drawing near.
The gnawing of" their letih he could hear.
And in at Ihe window, and in at the door.
And ih-oi.g'i Ihe walls, heller-,leller they pour.

,he co, f poor Eden
I he waul of it has ur.ven many a man
to il.e now i. me gim.ng tame, tne compn-
ny of the desolate, to hell. It has made
many a home a prison, many a husband
an enemy, mnnv a father a lyrnnl ; many
children faiheiless and many wives wid
ows, whose fathers or husbands yet live.
And when I see a man neglecting a lovely
looking w ife, and seeking his pleasure in
the haunts of sin, to know whether most to
pity or to Maine him, 1 wish to know if ihe
wife of his bosom always gave him the un
clouded welcome of a smile w hen he en
tcreJ bis own door.
If she did, but he cared not for it if
she spread the wiles of her pure love to
twine his heart, while he broke away from
the sweet enchantment if she made it sun
shine always in the house, nnd was cheer
ful in adversity as well as gay in hours ol
joy if she strove to bean angel at the gate
to keep him w iihiu the Cden that she loved,
while he would yield to the song of the sy
ren and wander from the arms that embra
ed him, to seek the embraces of others,
even to the abandoned, then he is a villain,
hatred of God and justly despised of men.
And such are many of those whom we see
in the road to ruin. The love of a fond wife
woulJ have saved them, but they rejected
it and deserved to perish.
But if and a serious if if she meets
him returning from his day's care and toil,
in the field or the shop, or the study of the
forum, or ihe senate, (it matters not where
or what his labors, he flies from them with
joy to find repose nnd peace in the para
dise of his nw n home ;) but if she whom he
loves mtets him wi'liout the joyous welcome
of a glad heart and a sunlight eye, or with
n frown, or look of cold indifference, or
whining complaints, or the mere absence
of delight : if she meets him not with the
living, speaking, shining evidence that her
heart leaps with gladness when its lord has
come, it is not strange lo me that his heart
sinks, and he seeks for pleasure where he
looks not for love, lit can be h ippy with
out love abroad, but home, though a heav
en full of angels, without love is hell.
Love is a thing of frail and delicate growth ;
Moon rfcnked.soon fostered .feeble and vet strong:
It will endure u.urh. suffer long and bear
Wh it would bring down an angel's wing to earth,
.nd yet mouol heavenwaid; hut not the lesa
Il dieih of a word, a look, a thought ;
And when it dies, it dies without a sign
To led how fair it was in happier hours j
Ii leavea behind reproaches and regrets,
And biin mesa within aXecliou's welt,
Fur which there is no healing.
There is truth as well as poetry in this
andoftthe domestic circle where poetry
never had a worshiper, has felt the sad
powers of this truth. "A word, a look,"
has been the death blow to love that shed
bliss in that circle, and has driven a fond
husband lorth to seek relief for a wounded
spirit in scenes that allure to destroy. Mrs.
Ellis in Iter "Wives in Englnnd," has most
happily drawn the portrait of a wife at she
should be "a being to come home to." It
is no: wit, nor beauty, nor religion, that
makes a wife a crown of rejoicing to her
husband. Nor all these combined. A wife
may have them and love her husband not ;
give him an unclouded welcomo never ;
make his honse no home.
Oh ! man may beat with suffering; his heart
Is a strong thing and g 'Id like to the grasp
Of pain that wrings mortality : but teir
One cord illeclion clings to. part one tie
That binds hi n unto woman's delicate I e,
And his great spirit yiclileth like a retd."
When such a tho't as this is put into
print, the most of readers laugh at it.as the
soft sentimcntalism of ihe young poet. Il
love dwells not here, joy is also a stranger;
and if love has its home in thai house, " a
word or look" may drive it faraway.

Profane Lang untie.
We would guard the young against the
use of every word that is not perfectly pro
per. Use no profane expression allude
to no sentence that w ill put to the blush
the most sensitive. You know not the ten
dency of habitually using indecent or pro
fane language. It may never be oblitera
ted from your hearts. When you grow
up, you will find at your tongue's end some
expression which you would not use for
any money it was one you learned when
you were quite young. By now being
careful, you will save yourself a great deal
of mortificaton and sorrow. Good men
have been taken sick, and become delirious.
In these moments, they have used the most
vile and indecent language imaginable.
When informed of it, alter the restoration

Difficulty with France.
We have intelligence from VVashington,
that the Government has notified M. Pous
sin, the French Minister, that his passports
are ready for him or in other words, that
he has been dismissed. Il has for some
Weeks boon hinted that some difficulty was
likely to arise from the reluctance of the
French Government to receive Mr. Rives,
the recently appointed American Minister
to that Republic ; but the difficulties at
VVashington did not arise solely from this.
It appears that M. Poussin, addressed a
note, on another subject, to Mr. Clayton,

from il phrtieolojiy was deemed highly im

A Precious Trio. Three German rob

what amounted to a very valuable bnr,t.

from so dangerous a vocation. M ben
the day which they fal ap;oin!ed for
this purpose arrived, one of Ihem was dis
patched to a neighboring loan to purchase
provisions for their last carousal. The
other two secretly agreed to murder him
on bis return, lhat they miolii coine in fur
hnlf the plunder, iustead of a third. They
did so. Hut the murdered man was a clo
ser calculator even than his assassins, for
he had previously poisoned a part of ihe
provisions, that he might appropriate to
himself the whole of the spoil. The prec
ious triumvirate were found dead together

and suicidal as ihe selfishness of vice.

We learn that dispatches went forward
by the last steamer, removing Mr. Robert

Are You Assessed ?
It is not loo early to remind the people
of the necessity of being assessed ten days
before the diction. The election takes
place on Tuesday, the 0th of October.
Bear it in mind, and attend to this impor
tant duty in time. Each one of you should
examine the list of voters put up in your
respective election districts, by your as
sessors, and if your name is not ihere,
have yourselves assessed immediately
lor if you are not assessed at least ten days
before the election, or have not paid a
State or County tax within two years past,
you will lose your votes.

The evidence on both sides, in the case
of the Aslor Place rioters has been closed,

was ragi..o lar!u ly in Lorrdoii. During
a single week, ihe deaths by the filial
scourge were 1 063. The mortality wa

is not a ray of hope from Hungary. Sev

children of Kossuth, aud the wives of sev
eral iMagvur Generals had arrived as pris
oners at Prtsburg. Georgy haJjbeen par
doued by the Emperor of Austria, and had
departed for Styna. A Congress ol Print

the German question. Nothing particlar

The ticket of Free Soilers and Old Hun

of Onondaga, Madison, and Oneida are.

We observe by the Democratic Whig,
that a serious fire occurred iu IWIefonte,
on ihe night ol the I3ih inst., which con

The total loss has nol yet been estimated,
but will doub'less be very heavy, of which,
we understand, but $-00 are insured.
