Oh! there is a dream dearly youth,
And it never comes again;
`Tim a vision of light, and life and truth,
That flits across the brain.
And love is the theme of that early dream ;
So wild, so warm, so new,
That in all after years I deem
That early dreams were true.
Oh there is a dream of matnre years,
More turbulent by far.
'Tis„a vision of blood, and of woman's tears,
FOr the theme of that dream is war :
And we toil in the field of danger and death,
And shout the battle array,
'Till we find that theme in a budiless breath,
Which vanishes away.
Oh! there is a dream of hoary age,
'Tis a vision of gold in store—
Of sums nuted down on the figured page,
To Im counted o'er and o'er;
And we fondly trust in our glittering dust,
As a refuge from grief and pain,
'Till our limbs arc laid on the last dark bed,
Where the wealth of the world is vain.
And is it thus from man's birth to his grave,
_path which all are treading?
Is there nought in that long career to save
Front remorse and self upbraiding,
Oh yes there is a dream so pare, so bright,
That the being to whom it is given,
Huth bathed in a sea of living light,
And the theme of that dream is Heaven.
Haste Not—Rest Not.
Without haste !—without rest;
Bind the motto•to thy breast!
Bear it with thee as a spell;
Storm or sunshine guard it well I
Heed not the flowers that round thee bloom,
Bear it onward to the tomb I
Haste not!—let no thoughtless deed
Mar fore'er the Spirit's speed;
Ponder well and know the right,
Onward then with all thy might;
Haste not years can neer atone
For oue reckless action done I
Rest not!—life is sweeping by;
Do and DARE before you die;
Something mighty and sublime
Leave behind to conquer time ;
Glorious 'tis to live for aye, •
When these forms have passed away
Haste not!—rest not! calmly wait,
Meekly bear the storm of fate;
DUTY be thy polnr guide—
Haste not I—rest not! conflicts past,

A Hindoo Wedding.
A nECOLLECTION OF 1805,
It is well known in England that the Mu-
Zoos who marry are betrothed very young, and
ills°, that the fair sex is so confined to the
house, that the young women, after they are
ten or twelve years of age, see no male per
sons, not even their own brothers. The hou
ses of wealthy persons are all constructed so
that they have nn windows that look into the
streets, but are built in squares, the windows
looking into the interior, The only entrance
is by a large gate, where the doorman, or por
ter, sits night and day, fur ho eats, drinks and
sleeps inside the gate, and when he has occa
sion to go to the river to bathe and say bin
prayers—which he does regularly every morn
ing—he is relieved by the trust-worth persOn,
so that no one can get in or out without the
fact being known. All Europeans of any note
also keep a doorwan, who when any stranger
goes into the house, calls after him "Bhar
Ca—Shaft, iah, chubber, di joc ;" that is to
inform the servants of the house that aostran
ger gentleman has gone in, and let the master
know. By this you will see the place is strict
ly guarded ; and it is very difficult to get in,
except at the Dutgrt Poolan, and other great
holidays, when three sidesof the house are open
to strangers,and the women of the family remove
to the zenana, or the side of the square oppo
site the gate, the windows of which are gener
ally glazed with ground glass; that gives light
but cannot be seen through. The great ha•
boos have their children betrothed when veer

young, and as they are never allowed to see
strangers, the father looks out f r suitable
matches for them ; the mothers ore out of the
question, for they see no person but their hus
bands or servants. The' fathers, when they
have sons or daughters come to the age of be
trothal, which is generally when the boy is
twelve and the girl eight or nine, look out for
a match for them in some respectable family
or their own caste, and who can likewise give a
suitable portion with their children.
There are also female agents, or match-ma
kers, who go about under the pretence of sell
ing fine dresses, clothing or trinkets, and who
make a profitable trade in looking out for good
looking girls, and recommending them to the
mothers who have sons come of age. After
they have made ass eligible snatch, the father
makes a bargin for the sums that each is to
give to the children to set up house-keeping,
and fix the time when the wedding is to take
place. To snake the arrangements sure. a na
tive caked, or lawyer, is employed to draw up
the deed, with tt penalty its ease of failure.—
When the wedding is to take place—that is
when the young couple are to live together,
which is, generally, when the boy is eighteen,
and the girl fourteen- r ail their male relations
and acquaintances are told there will be a
great &mosso,* or procession at the wedding,
and they are invited to attend. If the boy's
father is rich, Ise will spend a great deal of
money on this fortunate occasion.
I remember, in 1803, a very rich baboo,
with whom I had frequent dealings, and who
made all his money by traiding with Europe
ans, having a grand talllftSsa at his sun's wed
ding, which lasted three days. There was a
gorgeous procession through the streets of
Calcutta during that time, at which not less
than one thousand hired persons assisted ; and
besides other devices, there was a large moun
tain made of hoboes mid paper, on which were
placed a number of trees and bushes; with wild
animals and birds, all made of the same mate
rial, and painted to the life. This 1.3 carried
through the streets on the heads of pruhably
not less than a hundred men, a curtain hang
ing down to prevent the hoovers from being
seen. A guard of a hundred men in uniform
went before, and the same number followed,
all with intimation muskets on their shuulders,
and intermixed with numerous bands of drums
(tom-turns) and otherinstruments. The bride
groom in his palkee, finely dressed in gold em
broidered muslins, carried by four men, and
the girl in her dowlah ; closely covered up with
cloth, followed closely in the roar, guarded on
each side by n number of men dressed as se
poys, I think the procession was a quarter of
a mile lung in the broad streets, and a half
mile in the narrow streets, where the black
popelation live. After much show and parade
of this kind fur three days, it was intimated
when the marriage ceremony was to take
place; and there is often a great deal ur mon
ey given away among the pear at this time.
The marriage cerimony is performed in the
square of the fathers's house by a Brahma of
high, caste, who pronounces au elaborate liar
wipe ou the gool qualities of the bridegroom's
and bride's father ; then on those of the brine
and bridegroom themselves ; and then a pray
er that they may prosper, multiply and re
plenish the earth, there being grant mourning
in the house if there are no children even the
The time is now come when the bridegroom
first sees his bride. They having been placed
in their palkees under the zoona—that side of
the square where none of the company arc—
the bride is closely cover „d up in her dowluh,
and the Brahmin, holding a looking-glass in
his hand, gently opens the cloth, and, holding
the mirror in front of the bride, desires the
bridegroon to look in it, and say whether he
is satisfied to take this lady for his wife. if he
says Yes, then the ceremony goes on,-and is
concluded with a grand invocation to the gods,
ending with great huzzahs, and mighty drum
ming of the tom-toms. During the noise there
is generally a scramble in the street; fur mon
ey, which is scattered to the poor. The com
pany then disperses, the square is sem clad by
the doorwans,the door is lceked,and the xt day
that part of the town is as quiet as if nothing
had happened. But if, on the faithful ques
tion being put to the bridegroom say No—a
thing which rarely occurs—thewthere is a stop
put to the whole proceedings; the company is
dismissed, and the girl taken home to her fath
er, who returns the duplicate of the marriage
deed. I have only to add that it is not easy
for a stranger to get in to sec ono of these
marriages. I happened to have a Brahman
of high cast aura writer in my office who went
with me on the occasion retered to, and be
had only to hold us his finer to the doorwan
to procure my admission. There was a num
ber of Europeans there, but as they were all
dressed in white clothes, with hats off they at
tracted little observation.

made a stand on the Katscha, and another bat

suiting in the defeat of the Russians, who were
pursued by the Allies to the landward walls of
Sebastopol. More fighting took place under
the walls. On the nth, Feet Constantine was
invested by sea and land, and alter an obstinate
defence, was carried by storm. The Allies then
bombarded the city and the fleet. Teu Res•
sian ships of the line were burned and sunk ;
the remaining forts were carried, one after an
other, eight hundred gnus were silenced, tines•
ty-two thousand prisoners were taken, and the
Russian loss in dead and disabled estimated at
not less than eighteen thousand in Sebastopol
alone. In the midst of this tremendous havoc,
Menschilsolf, with the shattered remains of his
force, retired into a position in the inner bar•
bor, and threatened to fire the town and blow
up the remaining ships, unless the victors
would grant him an honorable capitulation.
The Allied Genei'als demanded hisuneondi
tionary surrender, and—in the named human

six hours had not expired when the last adviees

"The allied armies yesterday attacked the
position of the enemy on the banks of the Alma,
and carried it after a desperate battle about
one hour and a half before sunset. Nothing
could surpass the bravery and excellent con
duct of the troops. The position was very for
midable, and defended by a numerous artilery
of heavy calibre. Our loss, I regret to add, is
very considerable, but no general officer has
been wounded. The main body of the army
of the enemy was estimated at from 45,050 to
50,000 inthntry. A few prisoners, among whom
are two general officers and two guns, have
been taken by the English.

in some parts of Belgium, while with other:
and with Os, it is generally inferior.
The flavor of fruits is much influenced not
only by soil bat also by climatic and metero
logical agents. This, in a cold, wet and un.
drained soil, disease commences in the root;
and as a natural consequence, the juices attic
tree are imperfectly elaborated and unable to
supply the exigency of the fruit. Even inju.
rious substances are taken up. plum tree
has been known to absorb oxide o Iron, so as
not only to color the foliage, but also to exude
and form incrustations on the bark, and finally
to kill the tree. As an in,tance of climatic
agency, it is sufficient to Inca the fact that
out of fifty varieties of American peaches
grown in the gardens at Chiswick, England,
only two were adapted to the etiolate."

A good neiOlhor of cars tells us that 113 is
feeding his cows in part on applo , , and 110
thinks advantageously. it is his opinion tit,t.
apples, whether sweet or sour, in these times,
of scarcity of feed, are worth far more for cows,
than to make into eider. lie says that
may be fed to cows in larger quantities, now .
that the grass is dry, and especially if a little
hay from the barn be given, than if the pas.
tares wore ns grera usual; that if you coed
them in any quauti the sconrins point,
they will increase the quantity without detect.
1 orating the quality of the milk; but that if you
go beyond that point, the milk will be thinin
lobed; and that the feeder should observe the et . -
feet, and stop feeding within the limit, if ha
would derive the greatest benefit from his ap
ples as a feed fur mile,' cows. Others have
said that if cows are admitted to fulling apples
by degrees, they will soon learn to eat enough
of theta without entiag too many. We know
not how all this is, but our neighbor is a man
of good sense and careful observation, and wo
are inclined to believe that he is right in think
ing that the quantity should be limited ; and sea
have no doubt that apples, if fed in the best
manner, are valuable for any kind of horned
cattle, as we believe they are also for swine,
and for aught we know, for any hind of animals.

Charcoal for Swine.
It is perhaps not generally known that one of
the best articles that can be given to swine while
in preparation fur the tub, is common charcoal.
The nutritive properties are so great, that they
have subsisted on it without other food., fur
weeks together. Geese confined so as to de
prive them of motion, awl tattered on three
grains of corn per day and as much coal us they
can devour, have become fat in eight days.—
