To him •wiM !Main ear for melody,
Who lovis.earties:natural music, where no harp
Of curious mike; by man's device is framed
To measure sounds by arbitrary laws—
Hciw manifold ihn minstrelsy that swells
From her voiced instruments—he walks abroad,
And nature is attuned to harmony. -
Earth caught her music when the Morning stars .
Welcomed the stranger to their galaxy.
And ever since there's not a thing that lives
But bath an utterance, though inaudible
To him whose ear is wedded to the wire,
And to the viol's smooth, voluptuous trills ;
The stream that through the untrodden desert flows
impregnates with iticadences the air ;
The first white snow-drop and the last brown flower
That leans its withered cheek on winter's breast,
Hold eloquent converse with the changing year.
Spring has a joyful tons—
There's a glad murmer, through the loreit trees; .
And budding boughs, stirred by the southern breeze
As if their maker's Lund were o'er theta ihrown,
Give forth a voice peculiarly their own.

IVlnni birds imrsue their mates upon the wing,
And bold their revels rental the - shaded spring,
Or perch upon some branch, the whole' day long,
Echo each other's numbers clear and strong.

Of varied melody; oft-limessheTrieves;
Anil o'er her faded sheen a reiMium‘wenves ;
All whiles her garners with ripe spoils are hung . ,
And.tlie loud harvest home iszaily sung.
Stern winter goes not by
With silent footsteps: there's a crashing sotind
Where the hewn cedar topples to the ground ;
And tilt pure snow, when from the frosty sky
Its finites conic down, yielda delicate minstrelsi
And childhood's early day—.
It is nil music ;. with the blush of light.
Its hymn commences • a the shut ot 'night

Steals from its kielming lips to heaven away

Of broken melody; when love is young,

this unceasing concert ; and her wail •
Is like the mourning of November's gale,
Or Millie plant of the death-stricken heart,
Pierced by the forest ranger's bearded dart.
Religion's anthem swells
Front holy lips, tntidiangett by )earn or clime,
Still soaring heavenward with a [mitt sitl lime,
Or whispering Inwardly, its utterance tells
or peace, drawn from salvation's living wells.

'His tears had been flowing Aolong, that
his eyes red and swollen, and ; his voice

voice, begged for a little charity, the gen

with compassion Ae he looked into the. fair
face of the boy, and saw the deep blush
that overspread his face; and listened to
the modest, humble tones whith accompan

do pity my poor mother.'
The tears and the 'simple and moving
language of the poor boy, touched a chord
in the breast of the stranger that was accus

said he in a husky voice, 'is it far from

here, in the third block, and 'on the left

'Have you Beni for a physician V
'No sir,' said the boy , sorrowfully shak
ing his head. had no money to pay nei
ther for a physician nor for the medicine.'
'Here;' said the stranger, drawing some
pieces of silver from his pocket, 'here are
three dollars, take them and run immedi
ately for a physician.'
Henry's eye flashed with gratitude—lie
received the money with a stammering and
almost inaudible voice, but with a look of
.the warmest gratitude, and vanished.
The benevolent stranger immediately
sought the dwelling of the sick widow.—
Ho entered a little room in which he could
see nothing but a few implements of female
labor'—a miserable table, an old bureau,
and a little bed which stood in one I ,o yller,
anil on which the invalid - loy. —She—ap
peared weak and almost exhausted; and on
the bed et her feet, sat a little boy, crying
as if his heart would break .
Deeply moved at this sight, the stranger
row near the bedside of the invalid, and
feigning to be a physician, inquired into
he nature of hey. disease. The symptoms
were explained in a few words, when the
widow with a deep sigh, added, 'Oh sir, my

'Pile Mississippi valley is known by

\Vest, the Western country, the Lake
' country, the Southwest, the Far \Vest; by
sonic, it is called the Land of Pigs, and;
since the election of 1840, it is sometimes
styled the Coonskin regions. Its bounda
ries on the West, are the Rocky Moun
tains, Mexico and Texas ; on the south
the Gulf of Mexico, on the East the Alle
gheny mountains,; and .on the north the
Lakes and British possessions. It contains
nearly as many square miles as continen
tal Europe. and if populated as densely as
England, would sustain a population of
five hundred ?nillions of human heings—
more than half of the present population of
the earth. Stretching from the 29th to
the 49th degrees of latitude, it pOssesses
great variety of clitnate. In richness of
soil, and- extent of tillable land, it is not
it is not surpassed by any country of the
same exteat. Its surface is almost .unbro

size to impede cultivation. Geographi.

IP , After a couple of week's or so of good
bare running, she . will iv land, you at the
Great Falls, in the country of the Black
foot. Ltdiens, about , thirty-nine hundred
mike 4bove St. Louis, and ME THOUSAND
from New Orleans. Returning, you
would of course wish to see Some of 'the
tributaries of the Missouri—for this pur
pose you would make little excursion of
eleven hundred miles +the Yellow Shane,
of sixteen hundred up the Platte, and of
twelve hundred up the KozaS, and so back
to St. Louis, DO the, MissiSsippi river ,
twelve hundred miles /from New Orleans..
There you would take a boat for the beau;
tiful Ohio, and run up that stream to Pitts
burg one 'thousand miles from the mouth
of the Ohio, and two thousand front New
Orleans. You would see the flourishing
towns of Louisville, Cincintiatti, and Pitts
burg; the most luxuriant crops of grain
and grasses; fine and numerous flocks and
herds of every kind; you would smile to
see the primitive contrivances wafted oil
the bosom of the Ohio, bearing the mi.
ducts of the Ohio valley to its distant mar
ket_ in New Orleans; and more than all,
you would rejoice to see the healthy, hap;
py, smiling faces of the people. Before
you again embark on the Mississii)o, you
would no doubt run three or four hundred
miles up the Cumberland, six or, seven
hundred •up the
. Tennessee river, to see
what were the first cotton regions of the
valley,_end now highly cultivated and im
proved. Once' more on the Mississippi,
on your way downward, Yot. would be
prompted to shoot fifteen hundred or • ttho
thousand miles up the Arkansas river, just
to see where all those hides and furs come
frotri. • You would . no doubt run two or
three miles up the Yazoo, and two lion-
dyed or so up•the Big Black, both in the
state of Mississippi, to' see the country
that sends OM those stupendous steamboat
Toads of cotton that you meet on yoiir way
bin. and just before you reached New Or
leans you would be sorely tempted to pop
a thousand or fifteen hundred miles up
Red.river, to see the splendid cotton plan
tationS Louisiana, and give,a finish to
your excursions.
W hen you got back to New Oleans; you
would have a tolerably accurate idea of
what the Mississippi valley is ; and by put
ting the distauces together, you will find
that you travelled, very comfortably, by
steamboat sixteen thousand miles, and, in
going and returning, double that distance.
Should curiosity lead fou to investigate,
you will find that inthe Mississippi and its
tributaries, the Mississippi valley possesses
a steamboat navigation of from twenty five
to thirty thousand miles. Such is a brief
hut true geographical glance at the valley.
To the mind of an Atlantic or European
reader it may appear more of a fancy
sketch " than a true discription.` Let them
not suppose that truth is violated because
our rivers a•e large; we did not make
them, ant! are not responsible for that.—
We have, however, plenty of such little
streams as the Hudson, the Delaware, the
Potomac, the Santee, the Thames, the Sev

not dignify them with the name of river;
we call them creeks or bayous. With us

In 1790, no State had been erected in
this valley. Not including the population
of the western section of New York,Penti
sylvanin and Virginia, its population was
then only 108,868 ; not equal to .that of
Bedfordshire in England. 1890 it contain
ed two States—population 375,647 ; near
ly equal to that of iTheshire in England,z---
In 1810 it contained three- States,- popula
tion 1,00,169; nearly equal to the West
Riding of Yorkshire. In 1820 it contain=
ed six States, population 2,217,304; near
ly equal to that * Of Scotland. In , 1830 it
contained nine States population 3,672,470
more than that of ScOtland and-Wales ! In
18401 t contained eleven Statea, population
including that of the western .sections of
New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia, 8,-

He was an -li3hmaelitisli . wit for truly

of every woman too, from the Charles Rio 4

the ancient 'capital of the land of 'steady

. little time
church was full to overflowing: The
psalm was sung; the prayer Was said, the
sermon delivered in the pre:teller's best
style. He dwelt particularly on the' re
lquirements of the'reat precepts of broth
' erly love, upon the beauty of ben6olence;
on the pleasure which arises not Only from
attention to the mtnute and gracefnl sour:
tesies and charities of life; by which the
thorny paths are softened and adorned.---_
In the language of the critics in such mat
ters, 'there was not a dry eye In the place;'
the appeal liad found its Way to every
heart. All Mackay's immediate neighbors •
were sensibly 'affected; he.wept with Iberia;
the big tears chased each others down his
the Its.—. But while .every ene was' busy
wiTh their handkerchiefs; wiping away the
water that the orator, like a second :Moses,
had, by the strokes of his eloquence; caus=. -
edlo gush from their flinty hearts; Mack
held his arms still and straight While half
a glass of liquid. suffused his face. Ha
wrirtled, figeted, looked confused and in
teresting; but raised no hand, searched for
ne handkerchief, and. seemed to be in deep
distress. At length a young Widow lady,
Who sat, beside him remarked that he was
ill at ease, and (Heaven bless the female •
heart! it always melts at any mysterious
sorrow) after one or two downcast lOoke

'Alt, madam,' bre tiled Mackay, in a
whisper, 'I am a poo paralytic, and have
lost the use of My arms. Though my;
tears have flowed in answer to the touch
ing sentiments of the pastor; I have not the
power to wipe them away.' ''
In an instant a fair hand Was thrust into
