Tho following beautiful lines from the pen of

From the Louisville Journal.
:=839AT7.R71 ULAT.
The day was beautiful—around our bark
In sparkling waves the flashing waters stirred,
When, on the deck, one form I chanced to mark,
That made my quick heart flutter like a bird--
I turned away,
Yet something whispered, ere his name I heard—
'Tis fizmix CLAY !
How like a vision float before me now,
While fancy stamps with seeming truth the whole,
That stately form, that pale, expansive brow,
Those lips where smiles in bright succession stole,
That eye of blue,
From whose unchadowed depth his very soul
Seemed shining through !
Worshipping genius, I had long desired
To meet this modern Cicero; and when
My glances sought tho glimpse my heart required,
A more than mortal grandeur awed me then.
For, as ho trod,
Though but a man amid his fellow men,
Ho looked a God.
Oh thou, by fears unmoved, by threats unbent
Amid the struggling tides that round thee roll—
The meekly great—the purely eloquent—
The bright one speeding onward to the goal—
The firm--the true—
In whose all glorious praise I feel my soul
Exalted too—
Were I some gifted spirit, whose bright lays
Glow with high thought and wild poetic file,
Then would I sing for thee a song of praise,
Such as thy loftier spirit should inspire;
But o'er the strings
No poet bends ; a light hand sweeps the lyre—
A woman sings.
Yet I may breathe thy name, and bid thee press
On 'mid the adverse waves that round thee boat;
Such barriers pave the way to sure success,
And firmness gathers strength from pant defeat;
The torrent's force,
Though turned aside, still struggles on to meet
Its deJtined course.
Not for the narrow views of party band,
Not for their fickle praise, our loud applause,
Dost thou stand forth the champion of thy land,
The firm &fender of our sacred laws ;
To light the Came
Of patriot zeal, to aid thy country's cause,
Thine only aim.
'rho' sad was his fate, and mournful the story,
The deeds of the hero shall never decay--
He fell in the cause dear to freedom and glory,
And fought to the last, like a lion at bay.
When rang the loud call from the nation oppress'd,
And her valleys, with slaughter of brave men
were red ;
'Twos the pride of our Crockett to help the distress'd
And the watchword in Texas was heard, Go
His death-dealing rifle no longer shall shower
Its unerring balls on the proud, haughty foe,
Cut down in the spring-time of life's budding
His tombstone, alas ! are thy walls, A/unto.
Then may we not hope, since yalor has crown'd
And o'er him bright fame her mantle has spread ;
In the court's parting hour good angels were round
Bid the spirit arise to the skies, " Go ahead'!"
MIC~~~ a "sv OVd.
Death ! the great counsellor, who man inspires
With every nobler thought and fairer deed;
Death ! the deliverer, w:!o rescues man ;
Death ! the rewarder, who the rescued crowns."
DEATH IN mon pr.icas.—lt is well occasionally
to review the doings of the great leveller of the
human race, were it only to mark his impartiality.
If over he was partial, it has been in recent times
to public functionaries of the United States. The
frequency of death in highs places of late is remark
able. To say nothing of the long list of official
men, whose dust is now with the long line of low
monuments in the Congressional burial ground,with.
in the past two or three years, the fatal wand of the
great disenchanter has touched many of the sons of
ambition and of fame, and turned them to cold and
lifeless clay. If this article should meet the eye of
any of this class, let it not be passed too lighly over,
since they are in the shambles and will soon have
to go the same way. A little while since, Rodgers
sat at the head of the Navy Board, and was enroll
ed at the head of the Navy List. His name hos
been transferred to the roll of Death, and the hardy
sailor has cast his last anchor in the grave. He
sleeps among the brave, the eloquent and the wise
—as they were. In the same neighborhood lies
Tingey, who for many years served under the gov
ernment of his country. After sailing many years
over the sea of life, sometimes, in sunshine, some
times in the tempest, he too made fast near his
comrade. Not far was Ito carried from Isis com
mand at the Navy Yard to his lowly bed in the
earth. "Earth to earth—dust to dust." Next
followed Stevens, struck down from the same sta
tion by the unconquerable foe, the conqueror of all,
who never strikes his flag to the boldest and the
bravest. At night, Stevens was in the midst of
apparent health. In the morning, the spirit had de
parted! It was a limo of sudden death among
public men. 11. was joined unto the congregation
of the dead. It was not long before Patterson fol
lowed. He that was brave and troublesome to the
foe at New ('cleans, rejoicing in the common victo
ry over the armed myrmidons of England, could
not maintain the conflict with the old enemy, equal
ly expert and' dreadful on the land and sea. He
struck his c,10 , s and was conveyed to the silent
companionship of the Commodores and Generals,
whom the Spoiler has delivered over to the guar
dianship of the grave.
How sleep the brave, who sink to rest,
By all their country's wishes blest !
But if the power of arms does not avail with this
foe, still less does he yield to the force of argument
or the eloquence of appeals. If the warrior must
lay his laurels at his feet, the statesmen and the
civilian cannot be expected to do lees. On the 4th
of July, 184;!, Samuel L. Southard, acting Vice
President of the United States, and Francis S. Key,
an eminent lawyer, each delivered an eloquent ad
dress at the East lawn of the Capitol, under the
shade of wide-spread trees, to a multitude of Sab
bath School teachers and children. Before the rev
olution of another Independence Day, they had
both ceased from among the living, and were en
tombed with the lowly dead. Key, like Piekney,
of Maryland, and Webeter, of New Hampshire,
died in the midst of action. Almost literally were
they carried from the bar to the grave! from the
high elevation of mental toil to the lifeless inanity
of death. But they had done well in their day and
generation, and left an untarnished name to their
friends and country. Not only was the Senate, the
House, the Bar, and the Army visited by the Great
Leveller, but the Judicial Bench has received a
summons t Marshall, its light and its glory, onza
nzent unt, tureen et deems, as Cicero would say, had
not long disappeared; but it was by the slow pro
cess of discave, pre-admonishing his friends, that
they must Fepare their minds for the extinction of
that illustrious light. But Philip Barbour, who
sat on his left, had no warning. His spirits rats
high at night. In the morning he was dead. No
'friend was near to witness his last agony, to receive
his last breath. He was found in his bed a mass of
clay—the spirit gone! Save me from thus dying!
If kind Heaven will deign to answer that prayer,
Oh may say eyes, as they grow dim in the last
struggle, look on the faces of those that love ate,
see perhaps the starting tear, and read in the ex
pression e' t! o features of the living, that sympa
thy for the dying which is above all price. At the
funeral of Judge Barbour, Rev. Geo. G. Cookman,
then Chaplain to Congress, delivered an address in
his usual style, which was distinguished for simpli
city, pathos and power. He delivered his message
to the great ones before him with fidelity, as well as
feeling. "Be wise now, therefore," said he, "Oh
ye Rulers, be instructed, ye Judges of the earth,
kiss the Son, lest he be angry," ecc. In a few weeks
he went down into the depths of the Ocean wills all
on board the President. The President! what a
fatal name was that in 1941 ! Returning train the
inauguration of Harrison, i met Coukumn. Ho
shook me by the hand, "Farewell," said he, "I
am off to England, I am going to visit my aged
father, and to drop a tear on the grave of my moth

weep over the grave the other. "Nor wife, nor
friends, nor sacred !ionic" was lie again to see.—
That tremendous catastrophe bereaved, in his case,
a wife and six children of their husband and father.
Oh Death! all modes, as well as "all seasons are
thine own."
In this way was the Conqueror dealing out his
fetal shafts on the right hand, and on the loft, whop
as if to attract a degree of attention he had never
yet commanded since the day Mat Washington
obeyed his high behest, he struck at the loftiest vic

blow. The inauguration of Harrison was sublime,
but the funeral, who shall describe it 1 That was
a day never to be forgotten. And who was that

Maccomb; and in a few weeks the solemn sepul

in health described the peculiar style of the military

borne to the tomb. The Major General's salute
was soon paid to him ! Such is life.
