The moon beams on the billowy deep,
The blue waves tippling on the strand,
The ocean in its peaceful sleep,
The shell that murmurs on the sand,
The cloud that dims the bending sky,
The bow that on its bosom glows,
The sun that lights the vault on high,
The stars at midnight's calm repose;
These praise the power that arched the sky
And robed the earth in beauty's dye.
The melody of Nature's choir,
The deep-toned anthems of the sea.
The wind that tunes a viewless lyre,
The zephyr on its pinions free,
The thunder with its thrilling notes,
The peal upon the mountain air,
The lay that through the foliage floats,
Or sinks in dying cadence there;
These all to Thee their voices raise.
A fervant song of gushing praise.
'1 he day-star, herald of the dawn,
As the dark shutdown flit away,
The tint upon the cheek of morn, •
The dew-drop gleaming on the spray—
From wild birds in their wanderings,
From strcamlets leaping to the sea,
From all Earth's fair and lovely things,
noth living praise ascend to Thee;
These with their silent tongnes proclaim
The varied wonders of Thy name.
Father, Thy hand Inuit form 'd the flower,
And flung it on the verdant len;
Thus had'st it ope at summer's horn•,
Its hues of beauty speak of Thee,
Thy works all praise Thee; shall not men
Alike attune the grateful hymn ?
Shall he not join the loftier strain,
Echoed front heart of seraphim?
We tune to Theemur humble lays.
Thy mercy, goodness, love, we praise.
Female Influence and Energy.
I have noticed, says Washington Irving,
that a married man falling into misfortune
is more apt to retrieve his situation in the
world than a single one, chiefly because his
spirits are softened and relieved by domes
tic endearments and self-respect, kept alive
by finding that, though all abroad be dark
ness and humiliation, yet there is still a
little world of love at home of which he is
a monarch; whereas a single limn is apt to
run to self-neglect and waste; to fall to ru
in like a deserted mansion for want of in
habitants. I have often bad occasion to
mark the fortitude with which women sus
tain the most overwhelming reverses of for
tune. Those disasters which break down
the spirit of a man and postrate him in the
dust seem to call forth all the energies of
the softer sex, and give such intrepidity
and elevation to their character that at
times it approaches to sublimity. Nothing
can be more touching than to behold a soft
and thnder female, who had been all weak
ness and dependence, and alive to every
trivial roughness, while treading the pros
perous path of life suddenly lining in men
tal force to be the comforter and support
er of the husband under the misfortunes,
abiding with nnshrinking firmness the bit
terest blast of adversity. As the vine
which has long twined its graceful foliage
about the oak, and has been lifted by it in ,
to sunshine, will, when the hardy plant has
been rifted by the thunderbolt, cling round
it with caressing tendrils, and bind up its
shattered boughs ; so, too, it is beautifully
ordained by Providence that Woman, who
is the ornament and dependent of man in
his happier hours, should be his stay and
solace when smitten with dire and sudden
calamity, winding herself into the rugged
recesses of his nature, tenderly supporting
his drooping head, and binding up his bro
ken heart.
Russia add Tnrker‘
The great point of interest in the intelli
gence brought by the Arctic, is the com
plication and alarm connected with the pro
seence of Prince Menchikoff, the special
Russian Envoy at Constantinople. Wo
some time since called the attention of the
public to the peculiar character and posi
tion of this Statesman in Russia, and to the
fact that an embassy entrusted to him must
be of the gravest kind. Above all, the
Emperor would not have sent him to Con
stantinople without putting into his hands
full powers for either peace or war, or with
out preparations to back up the ultimatum
he was instructed to proffer to the Ottoman
Government. His appearance and conduct
since his arrival there, as well as his pro
gress thither, show that whatever fears
other powers may have about. snaking war,
Russia is ready for it. On his way the
Prince held extraordinary reviews of the
land forces in the Southern Provinces, and
of the fleet ou the Black Sea, as if he were
about to lead them into an actual campaign.
Ho was attended to Constantinople by a
suite worthy of the Czar himself, and was
received by the Greek and Russian popula
tion of the city with the pomp of a sever
' eign. Then, on his first interview with the
Grand Vizier he took care to be especially
insulting, and even went s) far as virtually
to dictate the resignation of the Minister
for Foreign Affairs, which was at once com
plied with. At these insolent proceedings
the Turks took fright, and the Grand Viz
ier prevailed on the British Charge d'Af
faires to send to Melte for the fleet there
stationed, to come immediately to the Dar
danelles—a smmons the Admiral in com
mand did not see fit to comply with. The
French Government have also ordered a
fleet Into the Archipelago to observe the
progress of events. At Paris stocks have
I fallen, while at London they were loss, but
still sensibly affected.
The nature of Prince Menehikoff's de
mands is variously, though nowhere offi
cially stated, but it is clear that they re
late mainly to the question of the Holy'
Sepulcher, and to the respective privile
ges of the Greek and Latin Churches, in
Syria and other parts of the Turkish Ens 4
pare. Some time ago the French Ambas
sador, M. de Lavalette, acting on the com
mand of Louis Napoleon bullied the Porte
into granting to the Roman Catholic Church
certain advantages with respect to the Sep
ulcher which had not before been enjoyed
by it. The Porte resisted, but, though
Lavalette was less arrogant than Menchi
koff, he was sufficiently imperious; and the
Sultan gave way. Prince Monchikoff now
comes to insist on the retraction of those
advantages, and doubtless adds to that de
mand the recognition of a certain protecto
rate over the Greek Christians of Turkey,
to be exercised by the Czar, with other
conditions no less unpalatable.
It is striking to observe the patience with
which events so interesting are watched in
England. Toe Times suddenly turning
right about from its late incitations to hill
busterism and the partition of Turkey, now
calls on Great Britian "by an example of
'moderation to preserve peace, and to cheek
'that cupidity which may threaten at any
'moment to tear the Turkish Empire asun
'der." The Morning. Chronicle thinks
that "too much stress cannot be laid upon
'the consideration that any thing like a di
'vision of the Ottoman Territories could
'never be accomplished without a long and
'costly war"—and that so far is Turkey
from the impossibility of becoming civili
zed, which alone could justify her destruc
tion, that it may really be hoped "that the
'Sultan may one day succeed in giving his
'people a Government almost as civilized
'and enlightened as is enjoyed by the Po
'lists subjects of the Czar, or by the equal
ly contented Italian subjects of the Em
peror of Austria."
Meantime, while the journals thus mod
erately debate the scatter, the funds suffer
no great decline, and the public gets into
no excitement, contenting itself with ble c
ming Lord Stratford for his prolonged abl•
sense from his post as Ambassador at con
Nor does the French Government mani
fest any such irascible disposition as was to
be expected from its share in the prelimi
naries. Having brought this Russian En
voy upon the Sultan; Napoleon was at least
bound to sustain the hitter in reducing
Menchikoff to civility, if not to face the no
nessity of war in his behalf. But he has
done no such thing, notwithstanding the
terror of the Paris stockjobbers. And as
the affair cannot have come upon him una
wares; we may take it for proven that
when he does go to watt he will ncii be
gin with Russia.
Ardent political prophets hold uc the
entire deglutition of the Ottoman Empire
by Russia and her allies as immediately at
hand; This seems to be an exaggerated
expectation. The process wiil be slower
and less apparent. It was already repor
ted at Paris, the day before the sailing of
the steamer that the question would be
peacefully settled. Such a settlement is
posible only oil the submission of the
Porte to all that is essential in Menchi
koff's demands. Such submission is high
ly probable, but it implies a profound con
viction on the part of the Sultan and his
Ministers, that in a war with Russia, Eng
land, and France would not support them,
in other words that those powers practical
ly abandon the Ottoman cause. Thus
will they prove the most efficient laborers
for the establishment of permanent Rus
sian domination in Turkey. Provided that
be really gained, the Czar is too shrewd to
peril it by grasping at more. For the mo
ment, it is of little consequence to him
whether he rules at Constantinople through
a Russian Governor, or through a Mahom
otan satrap with the title of Sultan. And
this promises to be the result of Mendhi
koff's mission. If he achieve such a tri
umph, it may restore him to that full favor
with his imperial master to which his tal
outs and integrity entitle him, but which a
jealousy dislike of his ambition on the part
of the Czar has latterly in a measure de
prived him of.
Paris Thieving,
The Paris correspondent of the Journal
of Commerce, has the following amusing
account of the manner in which the thieves
of Paris do up their work:
"Friday evening last some intimate
friends were in my parlor, and among them
an American lady, who, the day before,
had this adventure. She went to visit the
show rooms of Giroux—well known to all
Parisians and all curious, strangers, as the
moat splendid, fashionable, and expensive
of the entrepots at this season: She wore
a side pocket in which was the sum of 300
Fanks in bank notes, and in the same a
porte inonnaie with ay coin. She had
' destined the money, not to the purchase of
knick knacks, but to the payment of sun
dry small debts elsewhere. On retiring
from the moodish throng, she found that
her pocket was missing; it bad been cut in
the neatest manner, from under her robe.
In the afternoon, a package was delivered
by an unknown person, to the porter of
her residence, to her address, containing.,
the pocket, in which were the handker-1
chief, needlebook, visiting cards—all but
the money. Recovery is out the question,
:is she had not attended to the numbers of
the notes.
A distinguished Catholic priest of the
company related the following kindred an
ecdote. In the beginning of this month,
on the Sunday, a marriage in high life was
celebrated at the church of St. Louis d'-
Antin, about 10 in the morning. Our
Abbe happened to be in the Sacristy with
a few others of the clergy who had just
performed religious service in the chapels.
Suddenly the door opened, rather violent
ly, and a lady entered grasping by the
wrist a gentleman dressed in extreme style,
with new straw colored kid gloves, &c.—
She stated with some agitation that she
was of the bridal party, and that her pri
soner stood next to her. As she 'turned
her head to look at some ono who was en
tering the church she felt a twitch at her,
neck, and instantly perceived that her gold
watch, chain and seals—all of consider
able value, had been clutched. She seiz
ed her neighbor saying, "You have stolen
my watch, come with me to the Sacristy,
if you do not prefer to be exposed hero in
a more public way."
Ile protested his innocence while he suf
fered himself to be dragged. The priest
sent for the police officer, stationed out
side, and meanwhile wore almost persua
ded by the polite manners and earnest
pleas of the dandy, that he was wronged
and hardly treated. The functionary ar
rived, and the moment he cast his eyes up
on the accused, he exclaimed—"Ah, you
again, my boy, Pion Garcon)—Now, do•
give the lady her watch at once." The
watch was produced and gracefully restor
ed, and the Serjeant de Vile marched off
with his old acqaintauce. The reverend'
gentleman added, about a year previous,
at similar nuptials in Saint Roche, the
church in which he regularly officiates,
five lady females, fashionably attired, were
apprebendod•by the police officers at ',one
swoop. They were of a combination of fn. ,
°hers especially assigned to grand Espou
sals, of which it is always easy to get suf
ficient information beforehand.
SURE ENOUGII.—“Mother," asked a lit
tle girl, while listening to the reading of
Uncle Tom's Cabin, "why don't the book
never mention Topsy's last name ? I have
tried to hear it whenever it spoke of her,
but it has not once spoke it."
"Why, sho has no other name, child."
"Yes she bad, mother, and I know it."
"What was it ?"
Why, Topsy—Topsy Turvy."
“Yott had better go to bed, my dear,"
said the mother. o'You die as bad as your ,
old granainother, for she can't fitly pork
without beans, for the life of her."
1.E.," The beet proof of foreordination, is
the position that some men 'occupy in so
ciety. According to a late statistician,
the number of asses annually elected to
Congress, ontnumber the mon of sense by
twenty-three per cent.
The Marriage Altar.
Judge Carlton; in. a.reCent eloquent ad
dress, at Augusta, GeOrgia, thus sketches
the marriage scene, before the Young 346's
Association :
i 4 I have drawn you mary pietbres of
death; let me sketch for you a brief, but
bright scene of beautiful life. It is the
marriage altar. A lovely female clotl)ed
in all the freshness of youth and surpassing
beauty, leans upon the arm of him to whbin
she has just given up herself forever. Look
in her eyes, ye gloomy philosophers, and
tell me if you dare, that there is no appi
ness on earth. See the trusting heroic de
votion which impels her to leave her coun
try, and parents, for a comparative stran
ger. She has launche3 her frail bark upon
a wide and stormy sea; she has handed
over her happiness and doom for this world
to another's keeping; but she has done it
fearlessly, for love whispers to her that her
chosen guardian and protector bears a
manly and noble heart. Oh, woe to him
that forgets his oath and his manhood !
Iler dark wing shall flap,
O'er the false hearted,
Ilis warns blood the wolf shall lap,
Ere life be parted;
Shame shall dishonor it,
On his grave ever ;
Blessings shall hallow it,
Never! Oh never!
We have all read the story of the hus
band, who, in a moment of hasty wrath,
said to her who had but a few months be
fore united her fate to his, "If you are
not satisfied with my conduct, go, return to
your happiness." "And will you give me
back that which I brought to you?" asked
the despairing wife. "Yes," he replied,
"all your wealth shall go with you; I cov
et it not." "Alas, she answered. I thought
not of my wealth--I spoke of my maiden
affections—of my buoyant hope—of my de
voted love, can you give these back to
me?" "No!" said the man as he flung
himself at her feet.
"No ! I cannot restore them, but I will
dc more —I will keep them unsullied and
unstained— I will cherish them through my
life, and in my death; and never again will
I forget that I have sworn to protect and
cherish her, who gave up to sue, all ebb
held most dear."
Did I not tell you that there was poetry
in a woman's word? See it here! the mild,
the gentle reproof of love, winning back
from its harshness and rudeness, the stern
and unyielding temper of an angry man.
Ah, if creation's fairer sex only know their
strongest weapons, how many of Wedlock's
fiercest battles would be unfought; how
much of unhappiness and coldness would
be avoided !"
The following Indian legend, relative to
the spirit-home of Washington, is extrac
ted from Margan's league of the Iroquois.
It is curious, as showing the estimation in
which the Father of his Country was held
by this singular people, and their idea of
future felicity:
"Among the modern beliefs engrafted
upon the ancient faith of the Iroquois,
there is one which is worthy of particular
notice. It relates to Washington. Ac
cording to their present belief, no white
man ever reached the Indian heaven.—
Not having been created by the Great
Spirit, no provisions was wade for him in
their schemes cf theology. lie was exclu
ded both from heaven and the place of
punishment. But an exception was made
in favor of Washington. Because of his
justice and benevolence to the Indian, be
stood preeminent above all other white
wen. When by the peace of 1783, the
Indians were abandoned by,their 'British
allies, and loft to make their own terms
with the American Government, the Iro
quois were more exposed to severe meas
ures than the other tribes in their alli
ance. At this critical moment, Washing
ton interfered in the behalf as the protec
tor of Indian rights, and the advocate of a
policy towards them of the most enlight
ened justice and humanity. After his
death he was mourned by the Iroquois as
a benefactor of their race, and his memory
was cherished with reverence and affection.
A belief was 'spread among them that the
Great Spirit had received into a celestial
residence upon the plains of Heaven,. the
only white man whose dee& hid entitled
him to his heavenly favor. Just by the
entrance of Heaven is a wall enclosure,
the ample grounds within which aro laid
out with avenues and shaded walks.—
Within is a spacious mansion, constructed
in the fashion of a fort. Every object in
nature which ethild please a cultivated
taste had been gathered in this blooming
Eden to render it a happy dwelling place
for the immortal Washington. The faith
fulindian, awhe 'enters. haven,. passes the
inolpsure, Ho sees the illustrious inmate
Dille walks to and fro in quiet meditation.l
But no word passes his lips. Dressed its
his uniform, and in a state of perfect feli
city, be is destined to remain through.,
eternity in the solitary •enjoyment of the
celestial residence prepared for him by the
Great Spirit."
An Ugly Editor.
A recent number of the Democratic Re
view contained a likeness of Bennett, of the
Now York Herald, which Prentice thus
hits off :
“Bennett's portrait is terrific. Such a
thing ought never to be painted or daguer
reotyped. It ought to be considered a
penal offcode to make anything so revolting
to all our ideas of propriety. No man has
a right to monopolize so much ugliness.—
If Bennett's ugliness ; eould •be distributed
over a thonsawd !lieu, it would make each
of them intensely ; hatefully ugly. He
ought not to be permitted to go
b into the
street without a blanket over has awful
frontispiece. No wonder that so many of
the Now York children die of convulsions,
since Bennett is permitted to walk abroad
with uncovered face. We once ••heard of a
man's face that was so ugly that it was
placed on andirons for the purpose .of
frightening children from the fire, with
much effect. No child dared approach the
andirons, and the liability to combustion
from such a case was greatly lessened. If
Bennett's ugly likeness were stamped on
fire-places, the effect would be decidedly
had, for the children would not dare to go
near enough to the fire to keep warm, and
would become frost-bitten and perhaps fro
zen to death. We cannot conceive of any
reason why anything should be as ugly as
Bennett. He is ugliness perfected. There
is a thoroughness about his ugliness which
defies competition. When Mirabgau de
scribed himself as a tiger that bad had the
small pox, be placed - a
very ugly idea in
everybody's mind, but it was beautiful
when compared with Bennett's face. When
Appelles made his beauty, his 'Venus he
Wok ari eye from otie woman, a nose from
another, a mouth from a third, and so on
until the Venus was complete in her more
than earthly beauty. Now, if any Aud
ios, or artist of any appellation, wishes to
make the most indubitably perfect repre
sentation of ugliness, be would not be com
pelled to take features from several very
ugly persons, but 'all he would be compel
led to do Would be to get Bennett's taco,
and the enterprise would be acconipliShed.”
Tlf e Sabbath
The New-York Times very happily dis
courses of the day of rest in this wise :
“The rest of the'Sal?bath, is as necessa
ry after the engagement of the week, as is
the night's rest after the work of the day.
To the one we go instinctively, forced by
fatigue. It is well if we observe the other,
impelled by moral considerations, .before
suffering the penalty attached to its viola
tion, of which no instinct gives us warning.
After six days of labor our strained mus
cles need a season to renew their elasticity
—our irritable nerves to recover their nor
mal state—our fretted spirits to resume
their equanimity. A simple change of ne
cessary labor does a great deal ; the entire
cessation of all that is unnecessary does
still more. The fitting devotional exerci
ses of the day are calming and soothing,
and productive of that healthy state of mind
with which it is desirable to enter upon the
duties of the succeeding days. The influ
ence of the Sabbath on the week's tumul
tuous cares is like oil poured or. a stormy
sea. Stretched out over the hurrying crowd
of daily engagements, like the rod of the
Prophet over the Red Sea, it piles the
waves up on either side, and wo pass
through them dry shod.
"Oh day, most ralm, most !
The fruit of this, the next world's bud;
The endorsement of the supreme delight,
Writ by a friend, and witli his bler,!;
The couch of time , care's halm and day—
. The week' were dark but for thy light;
The torch duth show the way."
What Hope Did.
It stole on its pinions of snow to the bed
of disease; and the sufferer's frown became
a smile—the emblem of peace and code
It went to the house of mourning—and
from the lips of sorrow there came sweet
and cheerful songs.
It laid its head upon the arm of tho poor
man, which was stretched forth at the
command of unholy impulses, and saved
him from disgrace and ruin.
It dwelt like a living thing in the bosom
of the mother, whose son tarried long after
the promised time of his coming; and it
saved her from desolation, and the "care
that killoth." ' '
It hovered about the head of the youth
who had become the Ishruale of societ,.;
and' led him onwakltti works which. cycn
his enemies praised.' .
It snatched a maiden from the jaws of
death, and wont with an old man to Heav

ltdOken it on your side. Wrestle with it
that it may not depart. It may repay your
pains. Life is hard enough at best—but
hope shall lead thee over its mountains and
sustain thee amid its billows. Part with
all beside—but keep thy hope; ',
