A NEW SONG eon THE rocnTO or JULY, 1846,
Now while our cups are flowiNg
With memories born to bloont,
And filial hands ere throwing
Their wreath's o'er valor's tomb ;
While lips exulting shout the praise
Of heroes of the past that stood,
Triumphant, 'mid old Bunker's blaze,
And proud in Eutaw's field of blood,
Be not forgot the gallant train
That lifts your name in Mexico war :
One cup for Palo-Alto drain,
Ono mighty cheer for Resaca!
For Taylor—" Rough and Ready,"
True son of truest sires;
For May, who, swift and steady
Trod down La Vega's fires;
For all who in that day of strife,
Maintain'd in pride the stripes and stare,
The dead, who won immortal life,
And they who live for other wars:
For these, who with their victory,
New wreath's to grace our laurel bring—
A health that drains the goblet dry,
A cheer that makes the welkin ring!
Nor, though even now we falter
With thoughts of those who died,
And at our festive altar
Grow silent in our pride.
Yer in the heart's most holy deep
Fond memory shines the happy brave,
Who in the arms of battle sleep
By Palo's wood and Bravo's wave;
Nor in our future deeds forgot,
Shall silent thought forbear to bring
Her tribute to that sacred spot,
Where Ringgold's gallant soul took wing.
Fill to our country's glory,
. Where'er her flag is borne I
Nor, ih her failing story,
Let future ages mourn ;
Nor let the envious foreign foe
. Rejoice that faction checks her speed,
Arrests her in the indignant blow,
And sadden's o'er the uvehging deed!
Fill high, though from the crystal wave
Your cup, and from the grape be mine:
The marriage rites, that link the brave
To fame, will turn each draught to wine.

A Legend of Judea
The cite occupied by the Temple of Solntnon
was formeriy a cultivated field, possessed in common
by two brothers. One of theM was married, and
had several children ; the other was unmarried ; they
lived together. however, cultivating, in the greatest
harmony possible, the property they had inherited
from their father.
The harvest Staten had arrived ; the two broth-
Ors botind up their sheaves; made two equal stacks
Of them, and left them on the field. During the
night, the one who was unmarried was struck with
an excellent thought: my brother, said he, to him
self, has a wife and thildren to support ;. it is not
just that my share of the harvest should be as large
as his. Upon this he arose, and took from his stack
several sheaves, which he added to those of his bro
ther; and this he did with as much secrecy at if he
had been committing an evil action, in order that
his brotherly offering might not be refused. On the
same night the other brother awoke, and said to
his wife, " my brother lives alone, witttoiit d eem
panion; he has no ono to resist him in his librirti;
nor to reward him for his tails; while God has be
stowed oti me II Wtfe and children; it is trot right
that we should take from our common field as many
sheaves as he, since We have already more then he
hes—domestic happiness. if you consent, we shall,
by adding secretly a certain number of our sheaves
to his stack, by way of compensation, and without
his knowledge, see his portion of the harvest in
creased." This project was approved, and imme
diately put into execution.
In the morning, each of the brothers went to the
field and was much surprised at seeing the stocks
equal. During several successive nights, the same
contrivance was repeated on each side ; for, us each
kept adding to his brother's store the stacks always
remained the sante. But one night having stood
sentinel to dive into the cause of this miracle, they
met, each bearing the sheaves mutually destined
for the other: it was all thus elucidated, and they
rushed into each other's arms, each grateful to hoe
yen for having so good a brother. Now, says the
legend, the place where so good an idea had sim
ultaneously occurred to the two brothers, and with
so much pertinacity, must have been acceptable to

" Mr. Speaker—When I open my eyes and look

The Secret or Success.
There ere come men who appear born to good
f,rtune, and other. whose destiny appears to sub
ject them to eternal failure and disaster. The an- .
cicnts represented Fortune as a blind goddess, be
cause she distributed her gills without discrimina
tion; and in modern times, the belief has been
prevalent that the fortunes of a Stan were ruled
chiefly by the influences of the planet under which
he was born. Those superstitions, however ridic
ulous, show at Least that the connexion between
merit and success is not very conspicuous, yet it is
not therefore the lean perpetual. To coerced in the
world, is of itself a proof of merit ; of a vulgar
kind indeed it may be, but a useful kind notwith
standing. We grant, indeed, that those qualities
of rebid which make a man succeed in life, are to
a great extent subversive of gemus. Nevertheless,
numerous illustrious examples might be given of
men of the highest genius being as worldly-wise as
duller mortals. It is the pretenders to genius, rather
' than the possessors of it, who claim the large eV
eruption from those rules of prudence which regu
late the conduct of ordinary mortals, and array
themselves in the deformities of genius, in the Idea
that they conetitute its beauties. There are some
indiscretions, we believe, to which men of a vigor

and for which it would be as unjust to condemn
them with rigor, as it would be to blame one of the
