To childhood's home, to hearts and lips of love
And grief and sorrow from our breasts effitcing,
How sweetly all our former joys we'll prove.
Brother, come back !
Brother, come back—the scenes of early gladness,
Still glow in beauty as in days gone past,
There is no change except a tinge of sadness,
Which thy long absence over all has cast.
Brother, coins back
Brother, come back—fond eyes for thee are weep
And arms are ready to enclasp thy form,
Affection's torch its brightest flame is keeping
To light thy presence, and thy breast to warm;
Brother, come back !

We'd draw thee homeward in the heart's em
But thought and memory can alone pursue thee;
An ocean rolls between us and thy face;

TUE BROKEN-lIEA IMT ED.
BY JOHN O. IVHITTIER
I have seen the infant, sinking down
like a stricken flower to the grave ; the
strong man fiercely breathing out his soul
upon the field of battle ; the miserable con
vict standing upon the scaffold, with a deep
curse upon his lips. I have viewed death
in all its forms of darkness and vengeance,
with a fearless eye, but I never could look
on woman—young and lovely woman—fa
ding away from the earth in beautiful and
uncomplaining melancholy, without feeling
the very fountain of life turned to tears
and dust. Death is always terrible but
when a form of angel-beauty is passing off
to the silent land of the sleepers, the heart
feels that something lovely is ceasing from
existence, and broods with a sense of
utter desolation over the lonely thoughts
that come up like spectres from the grave
to haunt our midnight musings.
A few years since, I took up my resi
dence for a short time in a country village
in the eastern part of New England. Soon
after my arrival, I became acquainted with
a lovely girl, apparently about seventeen
years of age. She had lost the idol of her
pure heart's purest love, and the shadows
of deep and holy memories were resting
like the wing of death upon her brow. I
first saw her in the presence of the mirth
ful. She was indeed a creature to be wor
shipped; her brow was garlanded with the
young year's sweetest flowers ; her young
locks were hanging beautifully and low
upon her bosoms, and she moved through
the crowd with such a floating and unearth
ly grace, that the bewildered gazer almost
looked to see her fade away into the air,
like the creation of some unpleasant dream.
She seemed cheerful and even gay, yet I
saw that her gayety was but the mockery
of her feelings. She smiled, but there
was something in her smile which told
that its mots nful beauty was but the bright
reflection of a tear ; and her eyelids at
times closed heavily down, as if struggling
to repress the tido of agony that was burst
ing up from the heart's secret urn. She
looked as if she could have loft the scene
of festivity and gone out beneath the quiet
stars, and laid her forehead down upon the
fresh green earth, and poured out her
stricken soul, gush after gush, till it min
gled with the eternal fountain of life and
'Days and weeks passed on, and that
sweet girl gave we her confidence, and I
became to her a brother. She was wasting
away by disease. The smile upon her lip
was fainter, the purple veins upon her
cheek grew visible, and the cadence of
her voice became daily more weak and
tremulous. On a quiet evening in the
depth of June, I wandered out with her in
the open air. It was then that she first
told me the tale of passion, and of the
blight that had come down like mildew up
on her life. Love had been the portion of
her existence. Its tendrils had been twined
around her heart in its earliest years ;
and when they were rent away, they left a
wound which flowed till all the springs of
her soul were blood.
" I am passing away," she said, "and it
should be so. The winds have passed
over my life, and the bright buds of hope,
and the sweet blossoms of passion are scat
tered down, and lie withering in the dust,
or rotting away upon the chill waters of
memory. And yet I cannot go down
among the tombs without a tear. It is
hard to leave the friends who love me ; it
is very hard to bid farewell to these scenes,
with which I have held communion from
childhood ; and which, from day to day
have caught the color of my life, and
sympathized with its joys and sorrows.—
That little grove, where I have so often
strayed with my buried love, and where
at times, and even now, the sweet tones of
his voice seem to come stealing around me,
till the whole air becomes one intense and
mournful melody—that pensive star, which
we used to watch in its early rising, and
on which my fancy still can picture his
form looking down upon me, and beckon
ing me to his own bright home—every
flower, and tree, and rivulet, on which the
memory of early love has set its undying
seal, have become dear to me—and I can
not without a sigh close my eyes upon
I have lately hoard that the beautiful
girl of whom 1 have spoken is dead. The
close of her life was calm as the falling of
a quiet stream—gently as the sighing of
the breeze, that lingers for a time around
a bed of roses, and then dies, "as 'twcre
from very sweetness."
it cannot be that earth is man's only
abiding place. It cannot be that our life
is a bubble, cast off by the ocean of eter
nity, to float a moment upon its waves, and
sink into darkness and nothingness. Else
why is it that the high and glorious aspi
rations, which leap like angels from the
temple of our hearts, are forever wander
ing abroad unsatisfied ?—Why is it that
the rainbow and the cloud come over us
with a beauty that is not of earth, and
then pass off, and leave us to muse upon
their faded loveliness ? Why is it that
stars, which hold their festivals around
the midnight throne, aro above the grasp
of our limited faculties—forever mocking
us with their unapproachable glroy ? And
why is it, that bright forms of human beau
ty aro presented to our view and then ta
ken from us, leaving the thousand streams
of our affections to flow back in an Alpine
torrent upon our hearts t We are born
for a higher destiny than that of earth.—
There is a realm where the rainbow never
fades, where the stars will be spread out
before us, like islands that slumber on the
ocean—and whore the beatiful beings
which hero pass before us like visions will,
stay in our presence forever.
Bright creature of my dreams; in that
realm I shall see the again. Even now
thy lost image is sometimes with me. In
the mysterious silence of midnight, when
the streams are glowing in the light of the
many stars, that imago comes floating up
on the beam that lingers around my pil
low, and stand before me in its pale loveli
ness, till its own quiet spirit sinks like a
spell from heaven upon my thought and
the grief of years is turned to blessedness
Presonal Appearance of Socrates.
Seldom has the appearance of a great
man been so faithfully preserved. In the
pictures of the School of Athens we hook
on the faces of the other philosophers, and
detect them only by their likeness to some
ideal model which the painter has imagin
ed to himself. But the Socrates of Rap
hael i.e the true historical Socrates of
Xenophon and Aristophanes. Could we
transport ourselves back to the Athenian
market place during the Peloponnesian
war, we should at once recognise ono fa
milliar figure, standing with uplifted finger
and animated gesture, amidst a group of
handsome youths or aged sophists, eager to
hear to learn, ami to refute. 'We should
see the Silence features of that memorable
countenance—the t nose, the thick lips,'
the prominent eyes the mark of a thou
sand jests from fri ds and foes. We
should laugh at the vtuberance of the
Falstaff stomach which o necessary hard
ships' no voluntary exervi. , c could bring
down. We should perceive the strong
built frame, the developement of health and
strength, which never sickened in the win
ter campaign of Potidea, nor yet in the
long and stifling heats of the blockade of
Athens: which could enter alike into the
jovial revelry of religious festivities of
Xenophon an Platy, or sustain the austeri
ties, the scanty clothing, the bare feet,
and the coarse fare of his ordinary life.—
The strong common sense, the humor, the
!courage of the man, were conspicuous on
his very first appearance.—And every one
knows the story of the physiognomist who
detected in his features the traces of that
fiery temper which for the most part he
kept under severe control, but which, when
it did break loose, is described by those
who witnessed it as abosolutely terrific,
o'erleaping both in act and language every
barrier of the ordinary decorum of Grecian
THINK - .--Thought engenders thought.—
Place one idea upon paper, another will
follow it, and still another, until you have
written a page. You cannot fathom
your mind. There is Iti well of thought
there which has no bottom. The more
you draw from it, the more clear and
fruitful it will be. If you neglect to think
yourself and use other people's thoughts,
giving them utterance only, you will never
know what you aro capable of. At first
your ideas may come out in lumps, homely
and shapeless: but no matter; time and
perseverence will arrange and polish them.
Learn to think, and you will learn to
write: the more you think, the better you
will e Tress your ideas.
EDUCATlON.—Education does not com
mence with the alphabet. It begins with
a mother's look—with a father's nod of
approbation, or a sign of reproof—with a
sister's gentle presure of the hand, or a
brother's noble act of forbearance —with
handsful of flowers in green and daisy
meadows ; with birds nests admired, but
not touched; with creeping ants and al
most imperceptible emmets ; with hum
ming bees and glass bee-hives: with pleas
ant walks in shady lanes, and with thoughts
directed, in sweet and kindly tones and.
words, to nature, to beauty, to acts of be
nevolence, to deeds of virtue• and to the
centre of all good—to God himself'.
Lr_. The expanding mind of man, as it
goes out in the investigation of nature, and
the laws that every one preside in her or
dinary domain, comes back, bringing with
it the conviction that nature's author is a
being of goodness.
U Of riches, as of every thing else,
the hope is more than the enjoyment;
while wo consider them as the means to
be used at some future thee for the attain
ment of felicity, ardour after them secures
us from weariness of ourselves ; but no
sooner do wo sit down to enjoy our acqui
sitions, than we find them insufficient to
611 up the vacuities of life.
Cato, the censor, in distributing
rich presents amongst his soldiers, observ
ed, that it was much better for many of
the Romans to return home with silver
than a few with gold. So every enlight
ened philanthropist, looking upon all man
kind as his brethren, will not, by a n undue
preference of a partial few, out himself off
from the power of doing good to many.

Let Tax Payers Remember..
Thnt on the 3ntli of Nov'r, 1840,
the Public Debt amounted to $40,848,598 St
That on the 30th of Nov'r, 1850,
the Public Debt, including the
Inclined Plguc loan, amounted to 40,310,304 8:4.
TOtill i icercisc in Gov. Johnston's
The amount of debt given above, as ow
ing on the 30th of November, 1850, in
clude* the loan of $400,000 to avoid the
Inclined Plane at the Schuykill. So that,
notwithstrnding a loan of $400,000 made
for this important and necessary work—
and notwithstanding an appropriation of
$150,000 to the completion of the North
Branch Canal, Governor Johnston, in the
first two years of his administration, paid
FIVE HIT NDRED AND THIRT )(-
EIGHT THOUSAND DOLLARS of the
Public Debt !
If this loan had not been made, Gover
nor Johnston would have reduced the
Public Debt in his first two years, NINE
lIIJNDIIED AND THIRTY-EIGHT
THOUSAND DOLLARS. As it is, he
has paid $150,000 to the North Branch
Canal—he counts the loan of $400,000 in
the amount of debt now existing, and yet
that amount is less than when ho took
office by five hundred and thirty-eight
thousand dollars !---Under the previous
administration, these items of expense did
not exist. But Governor Johnston has
paid these now items and yet cancelled
over HALF-A-MILLION of the State
indebtedness!! This is an important fact
for the tax payer to remember.—Harris
The hour is Coming
We are rapidly approaching the fulfil
ment of our prediction, says the New York
Leader, that the vaunted prosperity of
our country will be shortly dissipated by
the incoming of a tedious revulsion unex
ampled since the days of 1837. The fi
nancial aspect of the past week has been
gloomy in the extreme. Money, hitherto
freely obtained at 6 per cent per annum,
has risen in Wall street to one per cent
per mouth, and scarce at that ! Heavy
failures have taken place in every section
of the country, and many more threatened;
in a word, the finger of faith exhibits the
approach of dark times! We are no
croakers, but perceive the fore-shodows of
of coming events ; stll men are loath to at
tribute these fatal results to the true
cause, over importation of foreign user
ehandize. We have slept in over security;
we have run in debt to foreign countries;
we have drained the laud of California's
product, and the hour of judgement has
approached. Can we meet it ? Such is
the question of the week and with an uni
versal response ;"it is possible." Listen,
for we speak words of prophecy, wo bid
you prepare for the coming hour of trial
and preach reformarion for the future.—
We are convinced that naught will save
our country front absolute prostration, from,
pecuniary ruin, save the passage of a
Protective Tariff. This measure, the on
ly means of national salvation, will be
submitted to the next Congress by force
of necessity, and we will see whether the
Servants of the People will legislate for
the good of ourselves or for that of the
British manufacturer and capitalist.
The Reseals of Whig and Locofoco
J. R. Snowden in his letter says that
in 1842 "our financial difficulties were
such that although a loan was authorized
to pay the interest in August, 1842, there
were no bidders for the loan and the in
terest za consequence was not pazd."—
This was in 1842, when the Looofocos had
all branches of the government in their
hands. In 1850, under a IVhig Gover
nor,the State credit is firm, the interest is
promptly paid and in par funds, the State
ran borrow money at a premium, and the
State debt is being gradually lessened !
Look on these two pictures and say do you
wish to give power tp the party who
brought our State so low that for several
years she could not pay the interest on,
the debt, and could not even borrow money
when she wished ? or to the Whig party
who rescued the State from her difficulties,
placed her credit upon a firm foundation
