When streams of unkindness as bitter as gall,
Bubble up from the heart to the tongue,
And meekness is writhing in torment and thrall,
By the hands of ingratitude wrung—
In the heat of Anjusticb, unwept and unfair,
While the anguish is festering yet,
None, none but an angel of God can declare
"I now can forgive and forget."
But, if the bad spirit is chased from the heart,
And the lips are in penitence steeped,
With the wrong so repented the wrath will depart,
Though scorn on injustice were heaped :
For the best compensation is pai4 for all ill,
When the cheek with contrition is wet,
And every one feels it is possible still,
At once to forgive and forget.
To forget? It is .bard for a man with a mini!,
. However his heart may forgive,
To blot out all perils and dangers behind,
• And but for , the future to live: ,
Then how shall it ha ? for at every turn
Recollection the spirit will fret,
And the millet. of injury will smoulder and burn,
Though we strive to forgive and forget.
Oh, hearken! my tongue shall the riddle uneeal,
And mind shall be partner with heart,
While thee to-thyself I bid conscience reveal,
And show thee how evil thou art:
Remember thy bonier, thy sins, and—thy crimes,
How vast is that infinite debt !
Yet Mercy hath seven by eeventy times
Been swift to forgive and forget.
Brood not on insults or injuries old,
For thou att injurious too—
Count not the sum till the total is told,
For thou art unkind and untrue
And if all thy harms are forgotten, forgiven,
Now mercy with justice is met ;
06, who would not gladly take lessons of Heaven ,
Nor learn to forgive and forget?
Yes, yes, let a man when his enemy rrepa,
Be quick to receive him a friend
For thee on his head in kindness he heepe
Hot coals—to refine and emend :
And hearts that are Christian more eagerly yearn,
An a nurse on her innocent pet,
Over lips tiler, once bitter, to penitence turn,
And whisper, forgive and fcrget.
Hew superior is a poor roan with a rich spirit to
a rich man with a poor spirit! To borrow the ex
pression of St. Paul, he is "as having nothing and
gae pbhavan*
all things and yeehaving nothing. The first hopes
every thing; the ti it hopes .nothing, and fears ev
ery thing. There tis no absolute poverty without
poverty of spirit, The sunshine of the mind gives
only the bright del, 1-'e who lives under its influ•
race is courted by all men, and may, if he will, en
their goods withLut their troubles. The world
is, as it were, held itternst for him ; and, in freedom
from care, he is entitiA to be' celled a gcntleman.,-•
fie is the most indervntlent•cif all men, , because
fortune has the least power over MM. He is the
only man that is freol!ind unfettered', he may do
what ho pleases, and nothing can be expectottfrom
I him. He escapes impuaity and flattery, and feels
a perpetual consciousness that he is not sought-but
for himself. Suspicion of motives never chills his
confidence, nor withers his enjoyment. Ho sees
on enr;:hing power within himself, which makes
hi s outward wants easily supplied with industry
and prudence, without thenecessity of anxious toil.
A little is his enough, and beyond is an incum
i bronco. This is the Chr;Vian doctrine and the
1 doctrine of reason, which ever go together. The
principle is the same whether a roan have a family
or not; good training is a better patrimony than
wealth. To promote richness of spirit as a nation
al characteristic, it is necessary to have spirited
governments, both local and general, and in each
community a large common purse—the very re
verse of the present tone, and of the wretched doc
trines df the economists. The greatest quantity
and the greatest diffusion of enjoyment, with the
least care, are to be found under a ty*tem of pri
vate comfort and public magnificence.

Z'Theeuirjoined is on extract of an able speech
by Mr. peorge S. Hillard, before the Common
Council of Boston, upon the subject of creating a
Superintendent of the Public Schools—a bill to ac-'
complish that object being before the Cern:cif:
.4 hove Token strongly in favor of this measure,
because I ern convinced of its utility. I think that
a wise, faithful and zealous superintendent will give
completeness and efficiency to our system of school
government. The schools of Boston are the beet
jewels in her crown. If I were asked by en intelli
gent stranger to point out to him our most valued
possession', I would show to him not our railroads,
our warehouses filled with the Wealth of all the
earth, cur ships, our busy wharves and marts, where
the car of commerce is ever "thundering loud with
her ten thousand vrheele," but I Would carry him
to one of our public schools, would show him its
happy and intelligent children, hushed into rever
ent silence at their teacher's word, or humming over
their tasks with a sound like that of bees in June.
Iwould tell him that here was the foundation on
which our material prosperity woe reared, that here
were the elements from which We constructed the
.1-fere are the fountains from which flow those
streams which make glad our land. The schools
of Boston, are dear to my heart. Though I can
have no perconal and immediate interest in them;
though no child on earth culls me father; yet most
gladly do I contribute to their support, according to
my subatance; arid when I see a father's eyes filled
with pleosarit tears, as he hears the music of his
child's voice linked to some strain of poetry or burst
of elorptuce, I con sympathise in the feeling in
which I cannot share. May the blessing of Heav
en rest upon our schools. They are an object
worthy of all efforts and sacrifices. We should
leave nothing undone which May tend to make
them more excellent and more useful. For this,
we should gather into our own stores all the hat
vests of experience which have, been reaped from
other soils. The present is an age of progress.
The claimant humanity are now beginning to be
heard, as they never were before. The movements
in favor of Pearl, of Anti-blavery, of Temperance,
of Education, of l'rison Lisciplico, all spring from
the came root—a sense of sympathy and brother
hood. fa it too.much to say , that the dawn of a
rnAnirykt ro nirrdavt.'aw, 'ha ranu restinfil

' and sin! Let us not be sluggards in this generous
I race. Let us not stand idly on the brink while the
tide of improvement sweeps by us, but boldly
launch our bark upon the stream."
,:rlThe London correspondent of the Boston
Atlas, makes the following reference to Professor
Faraday's experiments, to ascertain the connection
subsisting between magnetism and light:
odn the evening oldie 23d ultimo, Mr. Faraday
exhibited the great fact oflus resonrehes—the rota
tion of royal light by magnetic force. The fol
lowing grand experiment of the evening was sue
ass:dully tried: ,
A pristn.of heavy glaas.was so adjusted between
.Ire poles bravery. powerful magnet as to receive
the oxy-hydrogen light after it had been polarised,
and before it was •depolcrieed by i\ieholl's eye
piece. The following • factay demonstrating the
magnetism of light, were then exhibited.
1. As to the rofationoct the ray. 1 . 1 pole7isted
ray having been extinguished by the , depolarising
plate, was instantaneously restored when the mag
netic current was sent through the prism through
which the ray was transmitted; and conversely, the
polarised ray, when, by the common adjustment of
the plate, it had been made visible, was extinguish.
cd by the force of the current.
2. As to the relations of this electro-tnagnetic
power to other laws of polarised light. The rota
tion having been established, it was shown, that the
direction of the rotation was absolutely dependent
on that of the magnetic force. That, while in
common circular polarisation, the ray of light al
ways rotates in the same direction with regard In
j the observer, (to whatever part of the medium his
I view may be directed,) it is very different is the
state of the ray induced by this new force. When
brought under the influence of the magnetic cur
rent polarised rays always rotate in a constant di
reCtion, with respect, not to the observer, but to the
piano of the Magnetic curves.
In the course of his remarks, Professor Faraday
said it did not seem impossible Id him that thesun'e
rays might be found to originate the magnetic
forca of the earth, and the air and water of our
planet might be proved to bo the diamagnetic media
in which this condition of the force was 'canna

Message of the President.
To the Senate of the United States. at Bunting-
clurricenrcat—Stability ofpurpose is the vital
principle of Republican Government; end a steady
adherence to the rules established under the wise
experience of those eminent men, whose counsels
accotaplished our revolution and national existence,
is no less a tribute which we owe to great names,
than an evidence of our own discretion.
So long ago, es under the Presidency of lames I
Monroe, formal notice was given by thin Govern
ment to the varicus Courts of Europe, that we
could not, and would not, regard with indifference
the attempts of any European Power, to reduce to.,
subjection, by military force, any of the States cr
nations lying south of us on this continent. 1 re
commend to this Senate, to regard the principles
embraced in the notification of Mr. Monroe, as a
rule from which we are not to depart. ~
Though I am not aware that any attempts. at
permanent military conquest has of late been made,
by any European Power, yet the late attempts of
the two greatest naval powers of the old world. to
force obedience to their will, amongst some of the
minor Powers of South Americo, should be regard•
ed by us as a warning, that they still claim the
right of controling at least a portion of the nations
of the new world. . .
Our only security against harransing and denote
ting wars, in in our naval strength. Great as the
expense of this arm of our national defence is, I
earnestly hop that the Senate will continue to
strengthen its force, and improve its discipline, by
wise laws. We ahotild, without delay, place our
selves in such an attitude, as to keep our coast dear
of marauders in case a war should unhappily over
take us.
It is hoped that we shall be able eutisfacturily to
terminate, in a peaceful manner, tho controversy
concerning the country lying west of the Chippe
wa mountains, north of the Columbia River, and
south of the Russian possessions. It is my opinion
that we shall lose nothing by the delays of this ne
gotiation; as the citizens of the United Stales are
removing to, and settling is the Oregon country :n
such numbers, that at the end of ten years, if not
molested, they will be able to defend themselves.
There is a portion of our brave, hardy and adven
turous citizens, who seem to seek after and pursue
fatigue, hunger, thirst, and the dangers which envi
by nosnie ant() dn
in a wild country, as choice luxuries—delicacies
not to be found or enjoyed in the Old settlements.'
' :Jo Icrig; co a waver. of these intrepid men, shall
encamp round the Lone Elm with each returning
month of May, we need entertain no fears for the
ultimate fate of any part of Oregon.
I recommend the appropriation of a proper sum
of money, for the establishment of a snail, between
Independence, in Missouri, and the settlements of
our citizens on the Wallamet River, with interme
diate offices et , Fort Laramie, Fort . Hall, and the
Presbyterian and Methodist missions, in Oregon.
_ .
There is a fine country lying west of the Snowy 1
mountains, in New California, which seems des-1
tined tO be rattled at an early period by citizens of
the United-States. Might it not be well lo,eet on
foot negotiations, with Mexico, for the purchase of
all her territory west of the Chippeway mountain.,
as far south as latitude thirty three, and on the (Jost
of the mountains as fur c.Juth as the heed of the
Arkansas River. This would giro us possession
of the great Salt Lake, and open to our citizens the
only practicable wagon, rood to the valley of the
Saeramento, by Welker's Pa., ix. latitude 34 north.
In pert ofthe.consideration, for the country pro
-1 posed to be F:trot:tiled of Mexico, wo might under
take, to curb the Comanche otol other nations,
along the northern frontier of Mexico. Th is could
be effectt;ally done by the armed -force which we
• shall be obliged to maintain in the west, for the
purpose of guarding the mail to and from Oregon;
j as well as to chock the ferocious tribes that hired the
1 , country between the River Colorado of California,
and the great mountain range of the Sierra Neveda.
The American citizen is entitled to the protection
of his government, in whatever pert of our territory
he may locate himself.
It seems to be necessary that we should secure
1 the possession of that part of the Pacific coast, which
I , lies within the latitudes of the U. S., at all points
where safe harbours may bo found. Our vast coin
[tierce upon the ocean which separates ue from Asia
I and the intermediate Islands, will, within the next
century, fi ll all the ports on our western border.

living at St. Augustine, P.iyitta da chaste,. having
sold a pair of over. in.. town,. vets returning home
in the evening with his money, when in a lonely

We gather from several articles in the %Verse,'
Signal, acd other quarters, that a portion, if hut the

their pilgrimage for Claliforitta. Tire they should
begin their journey so early in theseation—beforn
the Winter had terminated, and long before the
grass shall appear, upon which to Waist their cat
tle and horses—is hazardous and likely to be atten
ded with severe trials and ntlich suffering. But it
is stated that from ter. to twelve hundred have
already erozsed the river from Native°, and are eh
cairiped on Sugar creek, lowa, seven miles diatant.
Aniong them were the hake, the High Councit,
all the principal men of the church, and phewl ono
hundred female. They wore sevei,d, days. and
nights in getting across the river. It is &raid to he
the plan of the leaders to scud this company for

Omit five hundred tidies westward, where they are
to halt, build a village and put inn Spring crop.—
They RTC to remain there until those who follow
