WHEN I AM OLD.
When I am old—and nh ! how soon
Will life's sweet morning yield to noon,
And noon's broad, fervid earnest light
Be shrouded in the solemn night,
Till like a story well nigh told,
Will semi' my life when I am old.
When I am old this breezy earth
Will lose for one its voice of mirth ;
The streams will have an under tone
Of sadness, not by right their own ;
And spring's sweet power in vain unfold
Its rosy charms when I am old.
When I am old I shall not rare
To deck with flowers my faded hair;
'Twill he no rain desire of mine
In rich and costly dress to shine;
Itri2ht jewels and the bri.,ditest gold
Will charm me not when I am old.
then I am old my friends will be
Old and infirm, and bowed like me;
Or else their bodies 'neath the sod.
Their spirits dwelling safe with God,
The old ehareh•bell will then hove tolled
Above their rests, when I am old.
When I am old I'd rather bend
Thus sadly o'er each buried friend,
Than see them loose the earliest truth
That marks the friendship of our youth,
'Twill he so sad to have them cold,
Or strange to me when I am old.
"Thy Word is Truth."

"There is that seattereth and yet in , rmseth,
and there is that withholdeth more than is meet,
but it tendeth to poverty."
And the words of Paul to the Corinthians
aptly expresses the same idea:
"He that soweth sparingly shall reap also
sparingly, nod ho that soweth bountifully shall
rzap alsu bountifully."

Republic at Guatemala.
We have been favore with a pamphlet copy
of the message of Gen. Carrera, Pre4ident of
the Republic of Guatemala, to the House of
Representatives on the opening of its first ses
sion, on the 25th November, 1853. We are
gratified to perceive that it presents a cheering
view o , the ,present improved condition and
prospects of the Republic. The fidlowintr ex
tracts from the document may possess interest
to many of our readers. It opens as flillows:
'•lt is very gratifying for me to see this res
pectable Congress now reassembled, in order
to continue the useful laborsthat were com
menced last year. The regularity with which
these meetings take place is an evidenee that
the establishment of our institutions advances
without any obstacle, and justifies the hope
that the governmenemay gradually acquire sill
id il Y. twreeabl v to the hoses of the constitution."
"In the interior of the Republic tranquility
has been preserved, and the increase of private
and general welfare keeps pace with the resin
ration of confidence in the stability of public
order. The desire to retrieve past losses has
been generally awakened. There is a tenden
cy to return to habits of order and regularity,
and the spirit of enterprise spreads and expands
everywhere. Trade has had a visible increase,
and it con be asserted that within the last ten
years the amount of capital employed in coin
!tierce has doubled. Agriculture is being de
veloped, notwithstanding the want of roads fur
speedy communication. The manufacture of
sugar has been increased to a considerable ex
"Should this fortunate movement continue
without nny interruption, it may be depended
upod that within a very few years the aspect of
the country will have been materially changed.
"As regards our relations with the other
Central American States, I have the satisfac
tion to incorm this Congress that the same fra
ternity and good understanding previously ex.
i,t'ng is maintained with Costa Rica. That of
Nicaragua has also evinced to this government
the most friendly anxiety to cooperate to the
restoration of peace between us and Honduras."
"A treaty was concluded with Salvador,
n, !deb, having been duly ratified, will he sub.
mined to Congress. I consider this event of
great importance. The relations between the
two States being so close, it was earnestly de.
sired that peace should he fortified, through a
solemn net, removing thereby the fear of any
new rupture. We have not been able to conic
to an understanding with Honduras."
"My constant policy and my steady purpose
has been not to protract useless wars on our
part; and accordingly I have confined my mil.
itary operations to what was deemed firers..
ry in order to repel and to disarm the invaders.
This object attained, and with a view to spare
calamities to the populations, hostilities have
been suspended on our side; our troops have
been reduced to the Wing, of pence."
llaving occasion to notice the above Message
of the President of Guatemala. we will add a
few words in regard to the affairs of the Cen•
rat American States, which we are prompted
to offer in consequence of various misconcep
tions or erroneous statements, as we under
stand them to he, put forth from time to time
through New York presses. Influenced prob.
ably by private ends, correspondents of those
journals are in the habit of representing the
Guatemalian government as one which follows
an illiberal and iniquitous policy. They mis
lead public opinion by what we are well assu

of the war, if it *nay be called a war. still

They assert that Guatemala has been the n?•
gressor in that war, and that she nets under
British influence, and is supported by Ena.
kind. Such representations, we are assured,
are contrary to truth, and have no foundation.
We learn the fact to be, that, after many years
of confusion, bloodshed, and calamity, brought
upon Central Americi by the disorganizing
doctrines of the radical or Jacobinic party, this
party became unpopular by its very excesses
and extravagances. The consequence was, we
understand, that it gradually lost ground in
Guatemala, Costa Hien. Salvador, and Nicara
gua; which republics are at present under the
guidance of men professing conservative prin
ciples, through whose exertions the country
hns emerged from anarchy. and a regular state
of society Tins been reconstructed. But the
few remaining adherents to revolutionary ideas
have succeeded in obtaining the control of the
State of Honduras, and front that quarter they
have been engaged in sending out expeditions
of political refugees from Guaternala,aticl other
marauders into the territory of Guatemala.—
Remonstrances were duly addressed to the
Honduras Government by that of Guatemala;
but the former. notwithstanding its official de.
(Aerations, continued to protect them, rind to
assist them with arms and money. The Gus.
tenudians were in consequence driven to ne
cessity of crossing the frontier of Honduras to
chastise and repress the marauders. The Pres
ident of Honduras saw in this circumstance a
convenient plea for declaring open war and in
vading Guatemala. He did so in the course
of last year, but was cotnpletely defeated. Gua

after that event, has tried every reasonable
means for the arrangement of the difficulty, and

It is certainly improper fur the American
press to encourage civil war among sister Re•

any one party. Their endeavors should be con•

A Mother's Prayer.
"When I could first remember," said John
Randolph to a friend, "I slept in the same bed
with a widowed mother; each night befOre put.
ting me to bed, I repeated on my knees before
her, the Lord's prayer, and the apostle's creed;
each morning kneeling in the bed, I put up my
little hands in prnyer in the same form. Years
have since passed away; I have been a skeptic,
a professed scoffer, glorying in my infidelity,
and vain of the ingenuity with which I could
defend it. Prayer never crossed my mind but
in scorn. I am now conscious that the lee•
sons above mentbmed, taught me by my dear
and revered mother, are of more value to me.

friend. "They appeared both annie•mattd and

A Remarkable Story.
One night, while Sir Even Napean was Un•
der.Secretary to the Home Department, he
felt the most unaccountable wakefulness that
could he imagined. He was in perfect health,
had dined early, and had nothing whatever on
his mind to keep him awake. Still he found
sleep impossible, and from eleven till two he
never closed an eye. At length, weary of this
struggle, and no the twilight was breaking (it
was Summer,) he determined to try what would
be the effect of a walk in the park. There was
nothing hut the sleepy sentinels. But, in this
walk. happening. to pass the Home Office set•
eral times, he thought of letting himself in with
his key, though without any particular object.
The book of entries of the day before still lay
on the table, and through listlessness he open.
ed it. The first thing he saw appalled him—
•'A reprieve to be sent to York for the coiners
ordered for execution." The execution had
been appointed for the next day. It struck
him that he had received no return to his order
to send the reprieve. He searched the ..min
utes"—he could not find it there. In alarm,
he went to the house of the Chief Clerk, who
lived in Downing street, knocked him up it
was past three.) and asked if he knew anything
about the reprieve being sent. In great alarm,
the Chief Clerk could not remember.
"Yon are scarcely awake.' said Sir Evan.—
"Recollect yourself—it must have been sent.
The Chief Clerk said that he now recollected
he had sent it to the Clerk of the Crown, whose
business it wins to forward it to York.
"Good 1" said Sir Evan, '•but have you his
receipt and certificate that it is gone?"
uN o. n
"Then come with me to his house; we must
find him, it is so early."
It was now four, and the Clerk of the Crown
lived in Chancery lane. There was no hackney
conch to be seen, and they almost ran. They
were just inlime. The Clerk of the Crown
had a country house, and, meaning to have a
long holiday, he was nt that moment steps iag
into his gig to go to his villn. Astounded at
the visit of the under-Secretary of State, nt
such an hour, he was still more so at his busi-

reprieve reached York, the next morning, just
at the moment when the unhappy men were
ascending the cart.

Dean Swift was a great enemy to ext-ava
genre in dress. Of his mode of reproving this
fully in those persons for whom he had any es•
teem, the following instance has been recorded:
When George Faulkner, the painter, return•
ed from London, where he had been soliciting
subscriptions fur his edition of the Dean's
works, he went to pay his respects to him,
dressed in a waistcoat, a big wig, and other
fopperies. Swill received him with the same
ceremony as if he had been a stranger. 'And
pray, sir,' said he, 'what are your commands
with me?' 'I thought it was my duty, sir,' re•
plied George, 'to wait upon you immediately
upon my arrival from London. "Pray, sir, who
are you?' George Faulkner, the painter, sir.'

peries. Get you gone you rascal. or I will im•
mediately send you to the house of correction.'
Away went George, as fast as be could, and
having changed his dress, returned to the des•
nery. where he was received with the greatest
cordiality. 'My friend George,' said the dean,
'I am glad to see you return safe from London.

A Model Editor.
He must linnw all about Isis own county",
his own State. Isis own county and other cam•
ties, State and country. He must know every
event of the current hour, must remember eve
rything he ever said or heard of during Isis life.
He must be familiar with all the records of past
history, and prepared to utter prophesies as to
the future a much harder task than many ima•
gine, if he wishes to avoid being thought mad
or foolish. He must be fully and thoroughly
posted in all the innumerable °logics, osophies
and ograplsies into which the limitless domain
of so called or truly called science, is divided.
He must know every great man of history.
every hero, god, or goddess, of ancient myth°.
logy and of the paganism of all time. He must
remember the name of every poet, and be able
to quote all the poetry that has ever been writ
ten, be thoroughly versed in all religious con•
troversies and doctrines of the old or latter
times. He mast understand every practical
question of all periods, .d the names and his•
tories of each agitator and party. He must
know all opinions prevalent or exploded, and
believe most of them. In short he must be a
walking eyclopedium of knowledge, a locomo•
tive megasine of everybody's belief; 1 must he
both chan4inr and unchaneeable in Isis prin
ciples. He must never be converted from his
opinions, and yet must be ready to embrace
every principle or issue propounded to him.—

If all the oaths uttered in the United States
