once beauliful boy, now cold in death. This heart
There are times when the fountain of grief is spent,
When its streams can no longer flow;
When the heart for its anguish can find no vent,
And hush'd ere the strains of woe.
There are times again when we cannot weep;
Though the heart may be runt in twain :
When the fountains of woo are pent up so deep,
That they never can flow again.
It is then, that the crushed and broken heart,
Weigh'd down by afflictions' chain;.
Stated on through sorrow, by ntisery's chart,
Must feel the fame of pain.
Oh! the touching etraine of that mother's grief 1
How replete with the Anise of woe;
When tears (which once came to her relief,)
Were no longer ellow'd to flow I
When cell'd from. her last fond tie to part:
When the shaft of death had sped,.
With entering Mtn to her fair child's hear!,
And number'd it with the dead !
that there is a chann that can yield relief,
And dry all the tears of woe;
It is there that the heart o'ercharged with grief,
Far comfort and solace must go !
There mourner, thy wail is forever husied—
Thy tear. are forever dried;
There'. a bairn for thy wore In the fountain that
From a thviour's bleeding side !
Through this we may enter those realms of light,
Prepared for the faithful on high;
Ana mix with the seraphim, cloth'd in white;
Whore pleasures can never die!,
There are joys untold that await us there;
When, (our sickness and. sorrow o'er,)'
We have Ind farewell to a world of cats,

A DEATH SCENE.--THE
ERS' OF COL. •PAVENPORT.
late number : of the Chicago . News
cootaina a detailed account of the execu
tion of John and Aaron Long and Gran
ville totiug, convicted of the inurderof
Cu). Davenport. It is stated that notwith
standing ow woador swag otor,ty,
5000-men, women and children, gazed
upon the appalling scene. John Long
confessed the murder, but said he wished
those present to receive, as the declara
tion of a dying man, his assertion that
his brother Aaron and Granville Young,
were innocent of that crime.
Aaron Long and Granville Young then
severally protested that they were inno
-cent. When they had done, John Long
again made a speech,detailing some events
in his life, and called upon all to take
warning by his fate. Up to 1840, he had
'never wronged a man, but in that year he
-was persuaded to engae in counter felting,
and from that he wasted to the commis
sion of robbery and murder. A full con
fession of his acts and associates he said
'would implicate two hundred men in Illi
nois, Indians Missouri and the Territory
but he withheld the confession from some
regard fur their families.
After he had closed he returned to his
teat, and after consulting the other pris
oners, returned and stated that it was
their (lying request that their bodies be
. given to their friends and not to the pity
ileitiss. !Ir. Gatchell now stepped for
ward and nfferxd •up a short and appropri•
ate prayer; after Which Mr. Haney read
a short psalm. The prisoners now sever-
Ally shook hands with those on the scan'•
old, and with each other. Aaron Long,
;and Young, nearly eivereotne with eino•
Aion—John„ quite calm and collected.--
.The Sheriff bound,their arms, put the
ropes round their necks, drew the caps
over-their faces, and led them forward
upon the strop. Taking the axe, he sere
ed'the ror at One blow, and doWn went,
the drop, letting them fall a distance of
fbur feet, But now remained a scene most
revolting to behold and most horrible to
describe. The middle rope broke, letting
Aaron Loug fall, striking his back upon
the beam below, and lying insensible from
-the strangling caused by the rope before
broke. For a tneirient not a human being
moved, all were horrified, and seemed riv
. cited to their places. Soon however the
officers descended and raised him up
when he recovered his senses and was
again led upon the gallows, 'suffering in
tensely, raising his hands and, crying out
"The Lord have mercy on me I You are
hanging an innocent man. And '(pointing
to his brother) there hangs my poor broth
er."' But, alas, he heeded him not. He
• was already gone beyond his sympathy—
be was left alone to endure the dreadful
sight of his brother's last agonies, and
-.once more to pass through the dreadful
-scene—the rope—the platform—the axe !
I shall never forget the appearance of
that man, as he sat upon the bench, a
large . bloody streak about his neck, his
..bcitry trembling all over, while prepare
tions.vt ere making for his final fall. But
there was another act in this drama. As
lie was ascending the galloivs, signs of an
nutbreak among the crowd, were evident.
Seine cried, "That's enough—let him go;"
while others gave expression to their hor
ror.. Just at this moment some cry was
raised in a reroute part of the crowd; no
one knew what it was; some were fright
ened—one wing of the guard retreated
towards the gallows—the tumult increa
sed—a sudden panic seized the immense
crowd, and they all fled precipitately
from the place. If the earth under the
gallows hail opened, and Pluto himself
had arisen from the infernal ,regions with
his horses and chariot, it could not have
caused greater consternation, or a more
hasty flight. . The guard were with difli
culty kept in their places ; the crowd re.
turned, and soon all was quiet, every one
ashamed of himself for having been 1110.
tened at nothing. One wagon was found
upset, but it was supposed to be the effect,
and not the 'cause of the panic. The
wretched victim of the law was at length
despatched; and the crowd dispersed.--
Thus ended the first execution I ever wit
nessed, and God graht that it may be the

A Nation must be truly blessed, if it were gov
erned by no other laws than those of this blessed
book: it is so complete a system, that nothing can
beadded to it Or taken from it; it contains every
thing needful to be known or. done ; it afford a
copy for a king," end a rule for a subject; it gives
instruction and counsel to a senate ; authority and
direction to a magistrate; it cautions a witness, re
quires an impartial verdict of a jury, and furnishes
the judge with his sentence i it sets the husband as
lord of the hinisehold, and the wife as, mistress of
the table; tells him how to' rule, and her hoW to
manage: It entails honor to parents, and enjoins
obedience upon children; it prescribes and limits
the sway of the sovereign ; the 'rule of the ruler,
and authority of the. master; commands the sub
jects to honor, and the servants to obey ; and prom
ises the bleessing and protection of its Author to
ell that walk by its rules. 'lt gives. directions for
weddings and for burials ; it promisee food and rai
ment, and •lunits the use of both; it points out's
* faithful and eternal guardian to the departing hus
band and father; 'tells him with whom to : leave his
fatherless children, and in whom his widow is to
trust ;t and promises a father to the former, and
hnsband to in° tarter. It teaches a man now he
ought to set his hound In order, and how to make
his will; it appoints a dowry for the wife, and en
tails the right of the first born; andshows how the
younger branches shill' be left. It defends the
tights of Al!, and reveals vengeance to the defrauder,
over-reacher, and oppressor. - It is the first book,
the best book„and the oldest book 'in the world. It
contains the choicest matter, gives the beat instruc
tion, and affords the greatest pleasure and satisfac
tion that ever wore revealed: It contains the best
laws' and profoundest myntcries that eVer were
penned. It brings the best of tidings, and affords
the best of comfort to the enquiring and 'disconso
late. • It exhibits life and immortality, and shows
the way to everlasting glory:' It is a brief recital
of all that is, past, 'and a certain prediction of all
that is to conic; It settles all matters in debate, re
solves all doubts, and eases the mind and conscience
of all their scruples. It reveals tha only living and
true Gon, and chews the' way to him ; and scta
aside all other gods, and describes the vanity of
them, and of all that trust in them. In short, it is
a book of laws, to show right and wrong; a book
of wisdom that condemns all folly, and, makes the
foolish wise ; a book of truth, that detects all lies
and confutes all error ; and a book of life that shows
the way from everlasting death. It is the most
compendious book in all the world; the moat au-,
thentic and entertaining history that ever was pub
lished; it contains the moat early antiquities,
strange events, wonderful occurrences, heroic deeds,
unparalleled ware. It describes the celestial, ter
restial and infernal worlds; and the origin of the
angelic myriads, human tribes, and infernal legions.
It will instruct the most skilful mechanic, and the
finest artist; it will teach the best rhetorician, and
exercise every power of the most expert arithme
tician ;§ ptiizle the wisest anatomist, and exercise
the nicest' critic. It corrects the vain philosopher,
and .gnide. 'the wise astronomer; it exposes the
subtle sophist, and makes diviners mad. It is a
complete code of lawn, a perfect body of divinity,
an unequalled narrative; a booh of lives, a book of
travels, and a book Of ',emelt. It is t the best cov
enant that ever was agreed on, the best deed that
ever was sealed, the beet . evidence that ever was
produced, the best will that ever was Made ? end the
best testament that over was signed. To Under
stand it, is to be wise indeed ; to be ignorant of 4,
is to be destitute of Wiedoth. It is the king's beet
copy, the rinigistrate'S best vale, the houiewife'sbest
guide, the Servant's beet directory, and the 'Sung
man's best coinpanion. It is the '
spelling-book, and the learned man's master-piece;
it contains a choice stammer for a novice, and a
profound treatise for a sage; it is the ignorant man's
dictionary, and the wise man's directory. Itaffords
knowledge of witty inventions for the ingenious,
anedark sayings for the grave; and it is its own
interpreter. It encourages the wise, the warrior, the
racer and the overcomer; and promises an eternal
reward to the conqueror. And that which crowns
all is, that the Author is " without partiality and
without Itypocricy—in whom is no variableness nor
shadow of turning."--(Sekcied.
