Oh, there are some dark : hours in life,
When the heart seems charged to breaking;
The qui ekcning'pulse withfever rife, • •
Marks the slumbering passions waking.
When the rapt soul in burning chains,
Seems writhing in its sadness;
Yet scorns the show of mortal pains,
And smix,r.s in reckless madness.
So lightning 'mocksthe storm cloud's power ft
To dim its viVid flashing ;
,And revels most when Tempesti lower,
With its eehoii 0. Thunder crashing;
. .
Or the wild laugh f maniac fears,
That rings from Passion's struggle;
Thus fills the soul with grief and tears,
As vaunted strength a---bubble!
Ke 4, there are times we love to feel
A. loneliness is sorrow ;
When from the world's bright ;Alarms we steal,
And shades from memory borrow.
'Tis then we feel that keen remorse--
. The bliss we've madly blighted;
For Time, whilst on his ceaseless course,
Gives back no moments slighted.

Li proportion, however, as marriage is
of a sacred and permanent nature, produc
ing weighty obligations, and liable to spe
cial and severe cares or calamities, ought
it to be cautiously and deliberately, and pi
ously contracted. It is
,not to be viewed
or anticipated as, a merely halcyon career;
rich as it often is in smiling .prospects and
auspicious event's, and Serene as it may be
rendered in all that the human creature can
control. A childish penchant, a calcula ,
tion of convenience, a momentary caprice,
form no warrant for it ; though they be so
frequently the only incentives.
Such a bond requires matured and dis
criminating attachment; comprehension of
its good and evil; resignation to,all chan
ces. Butlie or she wholta.s the right in
telligence,/feeling, and opportunity, and
yet avoids it yielding to selfishness or
cowardice, sins against the designs of Prov
idence and loses the final reward of coura
geous and successful trial.

According to the, same questionable an,
thority, all opithalamitmis are, therefore, at
least premature in their usual strain . ; the

he indulges himself in self-gratulation, or
welcomes the greeting of his friends. The
analogy is not, howurer, exact—because
it is in the power of 'the bridal parties to,
determine their own fate, in a miiterial
Life itself might be equally styled
d lottery, • looking to the diversity of its
chances, and the ineei'titude of its incidents;
but it is nevertheless, a positive blessing
with well-constituted minds and healthful
frames. So, likewise, is marriage, 'which
should be Undertaken as life is accepted----
with stronger expectation of weal than wdl
—with bright visions and cheerful resolu
tions; but, also, with a spirit of philo
sophical or christian submission to what
ever Providence May ordain to its course.
The Greeks made Hymen descend from,
Apollo, Urania, or Calliope. This origin
from the fountain of harmony and light,
anil the two noblest sons of the muses, il
lustrates or shadows forth the true chance
ter of the espousals over which the garland
ed god waves his never-dying torch, and
sheds•his celestial influence.
W" We extract the following from the
Rev..l. N. MArrres Lectures on the En
glish Langfiage—its origin, beauty, rich
ness and power, which we find in the Bal
timore Sun.. Mr. Maffit, iit reference to
the English Language, says that the Latin
tongue was introduced at the invasion , of
Julius Caesar, A. D. 45—that the Roman
language prevailed Mail 440, when the
Saxon passed over and established their
power, while their language gradually
blended with the •Latin. This was con
tinued until the time of William the Con
queror; when a direct effort• was made to
ettablish the Norman French; but this fail
ed, as the Normans lost their'own language
in that of the country. Mr. Matlit then
Icoritinues as reads the following :
• "The English language 'is the richest of
ancient or modern times, but by this asser
tion it ia`'not intentled to undervalue the an
cient and dead languages:--if the thesis is
sustained, an unanswerable argument is de
duced in favor of them. The Greek was
the. first language .of the arts; the Hebrew
of philosophy. we have been debarred
from a knowled49 91 the ?Of contained in
the early , writings of Greece by the burn
ing of the Alexandrian library. Many of
the Greek words Seem to be of the Egyp
that or Coptic origin. Thcos, in Greek,
seems to have been derived from Theo, the
Mercury of the Egyptians, and from it we
have our Theology. The Greek, is the
most perfect of languages-it is invulnera
invective; conveying all the thunders of
'mint' it is the language of love,'and, un
happily for Greece her physical power
was gone before her literature . was • estab
lished. The Roman language' derives all
its power and beauty from the'Greelt-----hut

or through the medium of the French;' the
, are compounds frontlhe Latin and
Greek, aiding in the polish and beauty 'of
the whole. As a son of the Emerald Isle,
it might be•expeeted that the speaker should
all;ude to the Irish. It is a spirit-stirring
language, but since Queen Elizabeth had
stirckened it out of use, it has fallen into !
disrepute. It is remarkable for two quali
ties; first, it is an admirable language for
making love ; and secondly, it is unsurpas
sed for scolding.
The magnificence of the English tatil
gunge is finely illustrated in the Scriptures,
which abound with pure Saxon. It is
learned as the Greek, melodious as thela
tin, courtly as the Spanish. Several pas
sages were quoted from Scripture to show
its plaintive, joyful, sweet and touching
powers or expression; The writings 'of
prominent men were referred,to for its di
versified powers, as Byron,,tatricknenry,
John . Bunyan and Washington Irving. It
was that tremendous agency with which
the orator cati roll up the wave
, of public
opinion, break fragments from the roclbof
intellect; and 'shake the world . with the
thuOder of its elriquence; Ibis the garliin
which some new thought goes, out into the

the' statesman - and the orator of God, was
descanted upon. SoMe factitious and iron-I
int remarks were' made relative to the
treatment which teachers received_ atAlte.,
hands of the world, and the speaker drew
to a close. In the course of the peroration, 1 ,
the English language was compared to
temple_ built of marble, in which one part
cause frotn•one nation, another from ano
ther, and harmonizing at length to a beau
tiful and diversified whole. --
. The English tongue will become the
universal language; it will flow on in one
broad stream L-broader and broader, recei,v-
Mg others as trihntaries, until finally

TRIAL nv Jour.—\%o take the follow
ing from an amusing natrative in the
"Knickerbocker." The writer of it has
sat on a jury without doubt:
" Did you ever serve on a jury, my
dear sir? I don't refer, now, to a coro
ner's jury, nor a grand jury; nor a jury
in the criminal courts—‘--these are well
enough in their way--but to the case
where character and property are discuss
ed, were justice in matters civil is confin
ed to one's peers.
True, the the theory of the trial by jury
is a beautiful conceit. X citizeti of thy
United States to be tried by his peers !—J
it looks vastly well an raper; there is some
thing in the very sound
,dint excites one's
American feelings. But my dear sir, the
ory is one thing—practice, another.
And why 1 Because, sir, the word
peers is a very ambiguous - s ignification in
in this free and glorious republic,
The theory Bait!) that a litigation .be ,
Mean merchants possessing thousands of
pounds shall, be arbitrated by merchants
possessing thousand of pounds; that me•
chanics shall mete out justice to mechanics,
gentlemen of leisure to gentlemen. of lei•
sure; and so on. And, indeed, this theory
carried. out, would secure the end and ails
of justice.
But look It the practice, 'Pita
chant, the gentleman, the man of wealth,
whatever be his vocation, disregards, the
summons of the court to attend us a juror,
and pays his fine becausa he can afford it.
The poor man on the.contrary, who has
quite as little leisura as his rich neighbor,
and can far less afford to spare that little,
obeys the summons because.he neyerthe
less has no money to pay his firfe:
The result is obvious enough. The fu

parties litigant, and unable, not from Al q

which he had positively refused to dd.—.
One day he had went to dig a gravd for one
who had just died; and during his labors
he plied the bottle so freely, that by the
time he finished it,he was considerably more

and it struck him very forcibly that it was

but ita . vii.4 nowhere to. be found =-: and there
was no tinte to go home for another. It
wollbl lie very awkward if the funeral
should arrive and -OW! grave not be large

dead man ' w
as considerably smaller than
himself, if there was room for him to lie
in it coniforiably, would answer—so in

"it'llbe a close lit," muttered he. streteh
ipg himself out. When he attempted to
get up, he could'nt. Ile dug his hands
into the earth and tried to pull himself up,
instead of which he pulled the earth down
—and the more he scrambled and kicked
to free himself from his unpleasitni. situa
tion, the faster the dirt and stones rolled in
upon him, and he was nearly buried alive!
The fright had sobered him and he began
to halloo must lustily. "Help! help! for
God's sake come and ,help/me ()in. or I'll
be buried alive!"
A IVashingtonian wlio was passing the
graveyard, lieard the noise—it soundedl-as'
