MISS PLEASANT'S POEMS.
Mr. Editor:—l desiro through tho medium
of your columns to mill the attention of
the roadiogy portion of our citizoneto the
poetical works of Miss JULIA PLEASANTS, Of
Huntsville, Ala., which I learn is no in
press, and will be boforo the public in a few
The perusal of Borne of her fugitive pieces
Which hove accidentally fallen into my hands,
has afforded me no ordinary pleasure;, and I
think I shall not bo found to have underrated
the good taste of any ono, if I add, that there
is an clement of beauty -in those of her effu
sions that have been given to the public which
will commend them to the heart of overy , lover
of chaste and elegant sentiment. ' -
It is true, it is not given to the female mind
to soar Martin epio strains, descriptive of the
battles of heroes, the plunder of cities and the
subjugation of kingdoms; nor yet, with tragic
gloom, to conceive of scenes of infidelity, of
fraud, of retribution, of blood and of death.
The madness, the fierceness, and the terror of
the former find no corresponding attributes in
her nature ; while nothing is farther from the
confiding and gentle spirit of woman than the
treachery and violence of the latter.
Yet it is given her to trend a milder path
way to the feeling heart. She can conceive
of the beautiful, the chaste. the pure and the
angelic. She can paint the scenes of child
hood, of youth, and the peaceful decline of
the good, with a touching pathos unknown to
a less flexible nature. ,She can chant the
praises of Flora, and associate the charms of
her own poetic mind ,with the fragrance of
Spring. She can beighten•the joys of connu
bial bliss by decking the hymeneal wreath
with the roses of genius. She can throw's
charm around the scenes of home, and give an
ideal spell to domestic felicity, which no ster
ner pen can surpass. It is the part of woman's
poetry, too u p subdue our more turbulent na
'ture by catalog oil on the troubled sea of pas.
sion. Her poetry, as her tears, softens the
rudest heart. If she speaks but the truth, it
is , woman's truth, simple, unaffected, touch
ing. If she talks of friendship, it is n lofty,
ennobling, self sacrcing friendship; a friend
ship such as JULIA spooks of, in the follolcing
Commend me to the friend who comes
When I am end and lone,
And Makes the - anguish of my heart
The euffering,of hie own.
Who coldly shuns the glittering throng
At Pleasure's gay levee,
But comes to gild a sombre hour,
And give his heart to me.
110 henrs me count my sorrows o'er,
And when the tusk is done,
He freely gives me what I ask,
A sigh for every ono.
Ile cannot wear, a smiling brow
When mine is touched with gloom,
But like the violet seeks to cheer -
• The midnight with perfume,
Commend me to that generous heart
Which like the pine on high,
Uplifts the same unvarying brow
To every etraring eky.
Whose friendship does not fade away,
When iVintry tenipests blow,
But like the Winter's ivy crown
Looks greener through the snow.
He tiles not with the flitting fleck
That seeks the Southern sky,
But lingers where the wounded bird
Bath laid him down to die.
Oh such n friend—ho is in truth,
Whato'er his lot may be,
A rainbthr of the storm of life,
An anchor on its sec.
Nor are the beriuties of nature unknown to
hor. Tho death of a sparrow may awake her
oomplainte against the cruelty of the piti
less ,blast. Tho bursting of a rose-bud may
awaken in bar the liveliest emotions of grati
tude to the genial zephyrs, whose refreshing
breath has expanded to her gaze the enchant
ments of the flower. The bounty of summer,
" When weary reapers quit the sultry field,
And crown'd with corn their thanks to Ceres
stirs up her eirseeptible heart to more than
gratitude = to .the puiest love and adoration
of the Great Source of all plenty.
If 'any bne doubt her ability to paint the - "ra
diance" of the "gorgooue Autumn,"
"Hanging round the lovely landscape,
Like a glory round a Saint,"
let him again read from our authoress:
Like some splendid old cathedral,
With its rainbow colored panes,
le the grand majestic forest
Where the gorgeous Autumn reigns
And its choir of feathered flutists
°haunt a melancholy strain,'
For the' beauteous summer moments
That may never come again:
Yet the Autumn , bath a - radiance
' 'Which the summer scarcely knew,
In her crown of glowing emerald,
And her robe of, burning blue.
Tie the hazy Indian summer, t.
Which I would that I could paint,
Hanging round the lovely landscape, •
Like a glory round a saint.. •
Oh, 'tie like a poet's memory .
, Of Immo dearly cherished dream
..4":;'.:/Drighter far than when they blessed him,
Do its perished features seem. •
iftl3o the hues of gay vermilion, •
And the gold and orange dyes,
Roll across the lordly mountains,
Ai the fading Bummer flies., '
And the soft,delloious zephyr
Hath as musical a tying
As though revelling 'mid the mien,
And the mignonettes of Spring.
And the morning blintz as brightly,
And the twilight falls as soft
As tho' June her royal banner
Then how gently . doos the night-queen
Through her fair attendant's glide,
Veiled in atoll& of snowy gossamer, •
Like a pale and shrinking bride.
Oh, tlo.Autumn, matAless Autumn,
Is the glory of the year;
Toll mo not of blue eyed 'April,
With her lovlier riyal hero.
CARLISLE, PA., WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1854.
Yes, the Autumn bath the radiance,
For a poet's shell to sing,
Flashing like a changeful opal,
In the season's circling ring.
And I would that, like the mountains,
When the August suns depart,
She should crown the summer beauties,
That hove perished in the heart.
I ask but the privilege of quoting one more
gem front Miss PLEASANT& It is headed
" Addie," and seems to too to contain Some of
the most exquisite touo',es of beauty I have
mot with in any author. It is the very lan
guage of an affectionate breast—wounded, in
deed, but still cherishing,fond recollections.
How lovely is the sleep of " Addie," _nestling
under the 'willow leaflets?" Flow carelessly
do 4, tho long green grasses wildly wave," o'er
the foot-prints of the ." fairy sylph?" Her
tiny" fm t no longer mar their growth. But
lot her speak from her own full heart.
The daughters of my father's house—
They wore not over fair,
But one of thorn had loving eyes,
And soft and shining hair.
Her cheek was like , the pale Mush rose,
ller smile was like - iho sun,
Her brow ° , it was the fairBst thing
You ever looked upon.
She floated like a fairy sylph
Along :he joyous daiico;
An nugel's soul was on her brow,
And heaven was in her glance.
Fier foot was like the•tiny wing
That bears a tiny bird:
Her voice was like its caroling,
Among the myrtles hoard.
I would that you had soon her whom,
The loeliestOf them all,
She sported through the happy band
That filled my father's hall.
She rifts the darling little lamb
Our mother most oaressed;
And I—l loved her as the soul
That sorrows in my breast.
She was the jewel in the chain
That bound me to this earth ;
That-last sweet memory of the reign
Of childhood add of mirth—
The shrine whereon my spirit laid
Fier franki r heense and myrrh;
And I can never love again
A's I have worshiped her.
Btit she is sleeping sadly now
Where willow leaflets fall :
And long green grasses wildly wave
Around my father's hall.
Prefacing this beautiful little gem the Wash
ington Sentinel says, ‘' The nillowing is ono of
those fleeting gems that sometimes run as
dazzling fugitives through the newspaper press.
It deserves to be i arrested and embodied In
the . standard literiiture of America. We there
fore lay violent hands on it, and ask that some
book tinker or other will put it where it should
b , !—in a handsomely bound volume with gol
The soft find flowing numbers of this south
ern muse, as they come wafted upOn the gen
tle Southwestern, have music Inc our souls.
We have long had an affinity with the south.
It is our home. We have known something
of " her magnificent 'mountains, her forest
wilds, her rolling rivers, and her deep blue
sky." We have often seated ourselves amidst
her slumbering vales, and watched where
The rinsed stars
Glow in the deep blue heaven, and the moon
Pours from her beamy urn a silver tide
Of living rays upon the slumbering earth."
We have been more thiin once proud of the
eulogies so lavishly bestowed upon the soft
ness of manners and elegance of taste so pecu
liar to this region of our country. Nor has
the.vehemence and power of sauthern-elo
qu'ence been surpassed by that of any other
portion of our broad confederacy; and were
it not for the prejudice of the worshippers of
antiquity, we might Venture to add, that it
has never been surpassed by that of any other
country of the'world. „Ica from some cause
or other, we have been permitted to realize
but little of the happy influence of this cul
ture upon the polite literature of our land.
Wo hare often wondered why it was that so'
much of the elegance and grandeur of Roman
and Grecian literature should be attributed to
Italian skies and Grecian 'scenery, while our,
own placid South, 'with all thatjs ample in
nature, magnificent in prospect, diversified in
beauty, should • have remained to this day
almost without a production which may hope
to survive the mutations of public taste. We
welcome this little volume as theliirbia'ger,ot.
a more excellent literature which is soon to
shed its radiance over the literary wastes of
the Sunny South.

THE BUTCHER AND THE BEAR
A farmer who had bought a calf from a
butcher, desired him to drive it to his farm,
and place it in the stable, which ho according
ly did. Now it happened that very day, that
a man with a grinding organ, and a dancing
I boor, passing by that way, began their antics
in front of the farm. After amusing the far
mer's family for some 'time, the organ man
entered the farmer's house, and asked the far
mer if he could give him a night's, lodging.
The armor replied that he could give the . man
a lodging, but ho wail at a loss winre to put
the boar. After incising a little, ho dote-min
ed to bring the calf. inside the house far that
night, and place the bear in the stable, which
IVO : done. Now 'the butcher, expecting the
Calf would remain in 'the stable all night, re
solved to steal it ore morning; and the farmer
and his guest were in the night awakened by
a fearful yelling from the outbuilding. Both
got up, and taking a lantern, entered the sta
ble, when the farmer found, to his surprise;
the butcher of whom ho had bought
in the grasp of the boar, Willett was hugging
him most tremendously, for 16 - otild net bite,
being muzzled:,lThe farmer instantly under..
stood the state of the case;:and briefly men
tioned'the circumstance to the owner of Bruin,
who,' to punish the butcher` for' his intended
theft, called out to the boar, him, Tom
try I" which the bear did in "real earnest; the
butcher roaring 'Most Itidemiely the whOlo
time. After they thought ho,..had.esuffered
enough, they set him free, and , : the butcher
slunk of, glad to escape '
With his'life;. while
the farmer and his guest retired to their beds.

We proceeded, bag tie baggage, to the

and the hour at which this most important
event takes place is, or ought to be eleven, A.
M. Travellers are commanded. to be at the
station at ten precisely ; and then they, are
liable to be told that the train is full—as it is
quite an unheard of thing to put on an extra
carriage for any number of passengers. Hav

ten, to be quite sure of being in time, our
baggage was seized by a policeman or rail
way porter, (for they all wear somewhat the
same uniform,) and carried in one'direction,
while we rushed in another to show bur pass

a sort of dull attempt at avereum, are, as in

as we usually suppose to be, L an emanation of
superior intellect. This has been repeatedly
exemplified in rencont?es 'with the insane.—A
lady was one evening sitting in her,cirawing
room alone, when the only inmate of the house,
a brother, who for a time had been betraying
,a tendency to 'unsoundness of mind, entered

The lady looked at her brother's eye, and see

KOWING GARDEN SEEDS,
The practice of sowing the seeds of many
hardy vegetables for early spring use, at ouch'
a time of year that they shall make consider
able growth before winter, has been praotioed
with groat success by some gardeners, parti
cularly for lattice, early cabbage, early onions,
spinach, &o. But it often. happens that the
soil is suffering from 'the severe aatumin
droughts at the best time for sowing. J.
Towers, a skillful English gardener pursues'
the following method.—lle first thoroughly
soaks with a watering pot the entire space,to
be seeded at sunset, and the surface covered
with mats all night, and until late .the next
afternoon when the watering and covering ie.'
again repeated, and so 'on for three snooessive
days. By this time- the soil is brought to a
fine, friable, quite moist condition, when the
drills are drawn, a watering given along eaoll

Every good seed will grow• without failure,
and with no appearance of unevenness ko com

watering, as is commonly practised at this
season, is perfectly futile, and soaking the•
seed merely will be of little use. A very weak

contemplations to concentrate them upon an
insect's wing or the petal of a flower. The
eye, in fact, creates the blue arch above, and
spreads the colors upon the sky; paints the
'fields, and sees the rainbows in the clouds:
There is no arch above us, no color in the
