If hope ho dead—why Reek to live?
For what beside has life to give?
Love, Life, and Youth, and Beauty, too,
If hope be dead—soy! what are you?
Love without hope! it cannot be.
There in a me! on yon sea,
Becalmed and eailless as Despair,
And know—'tie hopeless Love float. there,
Life without Hope! 0 that is nut
To live; but day by day to rot,
With feeling' cold and passions dead,
To wander o'er the world, and tread
1,7p0n its beauticy and to gaze
Quite vacant, o'er its flowery mate,
Oh! think, if thie be life! then sey—
Who lives when Hope has fled away? "
Youth without Hope! An endless night,
Trees which have felt the cold spring's blight,
The lightning's flash and the thunder's strife,
Yet pine away a weary life;
Which older would hare sunk and died,
Beneath the strokes their Youth defied—
Bat, curet with length of days are left
to rail at Youth of Hope bereft.
And Beauty, too, when Hope is gone—
Has lost the ray in which it shone;
And seen with,,ot tt,;. hnrocoAti
Has lost the beam that made it bright
Now what avail the silken hair,
The gentle smile, the gentle air,
The beaming eye, and glance refined—
Faint semblance of the purer mind—
Ae gold dust aPerkling in the sun,
Point whore the richer strata's rent
Alas! they now just seem to be
Bestowed to mock at miser;
They speak of days long, long gone by,
Then point to cold reality.
And with a death-like smile, they say—
..Olt! what are wo when Hope's away!"
thus Love, Life, Youth, and Beauty too,
When seen without Hope's hrightning hue,
All sigh, in MISERY ' S saddest tones,

Battle of Queenstown.
The subsequent embarkations were yet more
irregular. The number pf boat. which had been
originally provided, about twelve or fourteen, was
p!together inadequate, and several of these had
been lost catty ih the attack. The pilot and boat
men became irreaolute, and finally fled from the
ferry.
, •
Under these circumstances, about daybreak,
Lieutenant Colonel Fenwick and Maier MUllany
embarked as many as they could (about two hun
dred in all) of the remaining detachment. This
division of boats, without pilots, was forced, by the
violence of the current, upon the enemy's shore
immediately under his batteries; and the whole de
tachment was taken, with the exception of Major
Mullany, who, with . eight or ten mon, escaped in a

wounded in three or four places. The troops which
had effeeciedtheir landing were immediately in ac

Colonel yan Rensselaer, who, after having ad.
vanced one hundred and fifty paces, received two
severe wounds, and was forced to leave the field;
not, however, without having firs': ynptirted to tire

panics. Other small., parties, of twenty or thirty
men each, follewed on, as the boats successively
arrived. These gallant ypung men were soon in
possession of the greater height, called the moun
tain, having in their ascent carried a battery of one
eighteen pounder and two Mortars, which was
planted midway the acclivity. The enemy, beaten
inddispersed, fled to the village of Queenstown.
Here the fugitives were met and rallied by Genet-
al Brock, who brought up with him a detachment
of the York voltintaers, and instantly advanced to
the charge. The path of hie accent wee winding
and difficult. At the dietance of a hundred pacee
from the American line, this gallant and accom
plished soldier fell at the head of his troops, who
were again instantly dispersed. At this instant,
eight
_o'clock in the morning, Lieutenant Colonel
over to take the command of the whole of the
troops engaged; but the presence of Brigadier Gen
eral Wadsworth of the militia, who had crowed
without the knowledge of the commander-in-chief,
soon obliged hint to limit his attention to the reg
ulars, of whom, about two hundred and thirty in
all, he retained the independent command. Every
arrangement was promptly made for the reception
of the enemy. Matilde , ' by the judgment of Capt.
Totten, of the engineers, Scott drew up his little
army in a strong position. This was chosen with a
view not only to receive the enemy, but also to cov
er the ferry, under the idea that they would speedi
ly be reirifOrced by the whole of the troop! at Lewis
town. The enemy allowed them but a short
breathing tini:e_
The first gun which had been fired in the morn:
ing had put in motion the garrison at Fort George,
and the body . of Indians collected there. The lat
ter, about four hundred in number, arrived first,
and were joined by the, light troupe previously en
gaged. A sharp and gallant conflict ensued.
SCOTT reccivnd the enemy with his regulars, routed
and pursued him as far as the great object in view,
the protection Pb the ferry, would permit., 6ur
trot*, having resumed their Oehler', the enemy,
front his great superiority in numbers, was induced
to renew the attack, drove in the advanced picket,
and forced his way into the midst of the American
line. All was now cenfusion; defeat and massacre
seemed inevitable. At this critical moment SCOTT,
who had been everywhere in the thickest of the
fire, by great exertions brought the retreating line
to the right about. With one of those 'sudden
revolutions of feelings which set Upon itirge bodice
of men, so instantaneously and so wonderfully, his
troops seemed at once to catch the spirit of their
leader. With one burst of enthusiasm, as sudden
as the panic of the preceding moment, the line,
which had just before been retreating in broken
confUsion, ilatit threw itself forward on the enemy,
who again fled with precipitation. leaving a consid
erable number of dead and wounded on the field.
The rout was follOived UP a considerable distance,
but the ferry could not be lost sight of. Through.
out these affairs, the militia did not act in a body
but many giilleint iiidividnals among them fought
as individuals, by the side of the regulars, and par
ticipated in their dangers and successes. .
... .
The Indians and light troops, so frequently
befit en, were now content to await the arrival of
the garrison of Fort Gunge, (eight hundred and
fifty in iiimilier,) then in sight, at the distance of ri
mile, under Major-General Sheafle. Lieutenant:
Colonel Chrystia and Major Miillany, who had
joined SCOTT during the list piirsnit, biit Without
any reinforcements, brought information that no
aid was to be expected from Lewistown. Major-
General Van Rensselaer had done everything in his
power to induce the .ailitia to cross over, but the
sight of Sheaffe's column excited in them °consti
tutional scruples" not to be overcome. They
were contented to watch the fate of their country
man, on the opposite heights, themselves far re-
I moved from danger. Retreat had now become as
hopeless as succour. The few remaining boats

Were On the American aide. SCOTT resolved to
receive the enemy on the ground which he occu
pied, when, any survived the shock, it would be
time enough to surrender. Major.Generel Sheaffe
approached warily with his force, suspecting the
small band in view to be but the outpost of the prin
cipal army. At length they closed; the action was
sharp, bloody and desperate, for some eight or ten
minutes, when, being nearly surrounded on all
sides, the Americans broke and retreated to the
bank of the river, under cover of the precipice.
The greatest mortification experienced by those
who had done their duty, was to find, un..ler the
rocks and the fissures of the precipice, upwards of
ono hundred of the militia, who, it seems, had been
forced over the river, but never ascended the height,
or came within sight of the enemy.
boring the whole of those affairs, Seer, ex
posed his person in the most fearless manner. He
was in his full uniform, and being, besides, re
markable for his stature, was evidently singled out
as a mark. He was advised by an officer to throw
aside, or cover some part of his dress: "No," said
he, smiling, -I will die in my robes." Captain
Laurence soon after fell dangerously (it was then
thoitght, mortally) wounded by his side. After he
had surrendered himself, an Indian came up to
Colonel Scott, and, attentively surveying him, said'
" , you are not born to be shot—so many limes—
(holding up all the fingers of both hands, to count
ten)—so many times have I leveled, and fired my
rifle at yeti."
From Queenstown Scott was sent a prisoter to
Quebec; thei.ce, about a month after, he embarked
for Boston. He was exchanged in January, 1813,
soon After his realm to the United States..
Thus ended the battle of Queenstown, in which
the Americans engaged, with the exception, per
haps, of a few of the militia, behaved with tho Ut
most coolness and bravery., The refusal of the
rear division to cress the river, alone prevented
them from reaping the fruits of their exertions,

Friends, have you ever differed? If He, who was

The Oregon Question
PREPARATION FOR WAR.
, Wilmer and Smith's European Times contains
the following comments on tho preparation for war
now visible in England:—
the dock yard; and naval arsenals of England,
exhibit extraordinary activity at the present mo
ment. In many of the outporte steam frigates of
the largest class have been ordered by the govern
ment, to be ready by a fixed period, according to
the contracts, and the builders have been bound
down by heavs penalties to have them, like the
old Commodore in the song, "fit for sea" at the re
quired time, .'the contractors have recently been
informed by the AdMiralty that the penalties will
be rigidly enforced in the event of failure as to
time. In addition, eurveys are being made oldie
coast and of the outports, end ii4a7ations are also
being made for placing tilt whcla in a pcaition of
the greatest strength and impregnability. But the
natural inquiry is, whence this warlike activity?
What is the occasion that demand. it? We are
at peace with the world; our ships ride, quietly on
every sea; the foreign relations of the country wear
a pacific appearance.
Those who profess to see farther into a millatono
than their neighbors, point to the "Far West"—to
Oregon, fora solution of the mystery. President
Polk, Hay they, is determined to have the disputed
territory, irrespective of the consequences. The
spirit of his inaugural adding, the came authorities
add, actuate. the President and his democratic
Congress. The comparative weakness of the
Whigs in the House, as well as in the Senate, and
the strong feelings which influence a large portion
of the citizens of the United Stetee on this question,
are adduced as potent reasons for the arming, and
the preparations for onslaught, of which the dock
yards of Britain at the present moment give indu
bitable proof. The preparations to which we
allude are unquestionably matters of fact; whether
the inference deduced therefrom be correct, is an.
other question. But the quid nun., who are nev
er at a loss for reasons on which to build a specu
lation, however absurd, instance the fact of Mr.
Everett having declined an invitation to a public
demonstration in Boston, on his return home, be
cause he could not speak, except of vague general
ities, without violating official confidence, as a
proof that the relations of the two countries, arising

IiAkNIER'S CREED
W e believe in small farms and thorough
cultivation.
•
,We believe that the soil loves to eat,
as its owner, and ought to be manured.
W e believe to large crops which leave
the land better.than they knod it; making
both the farmer and the farm rich at once.
We believe to going to the bottom of
thins—and therefore, in deep ploughing
and enough of it. All the better if with
a subsoil plough.
We believe the best fertilizer of any
soil is a spirit of industry; enterprise,
and intelligence—without this, lime and
gypsum bones and green manure, marl
and guano, will be of little use.
'We believe in good lenges, good barns,
good farm bosses, good stuck, good or
chards, and children enough to gather the
fruit.
M'e believe in a clean kitchen, a neat
wile in it, a spinning piano, a clean cup
board; a clear conscience.
NV . e disbelieve in farmers who will not
improve—in farms that grow poorer every
. year, farmer's boys turning into clerks and
merchants--in farmers ashamed of their
vocation, or who drink whiskey till sober
men are ashamed of them.
Moreover, we believe in taking a new s•
paper and in paying for it. Such hints
are worth at least a year's pay.

The hopes that had nestled in the heart of many a

of strangers. Ah ! little did they think, on that
day, when tears and smiles were mingled—when
they looked upon that bright face with its beaming
joy and youthful pride, that its glow was lighted
with the fevered breath of the treacherous disease
—consumption. Littlo did the fond father think
when he loft a tear of mingled joy and sorrow up
on her cheek at parting, that she was so soon to be
borne . back to the house of her youth in comfortless
sorrow.
Death regards not a father's love, nor a husband's
grief—she is laid in her shrouded beauty beneath
the spreading cypress of het native hills, in calm,
unbroken, painless sleep. She has the moonlight
resting upon her native valbee for the last tune—
the sun to her gilds the hill-tops no more. Th.
