SONG BY ROBERT BURNS,
Addressed to Jliss has Da , f/hter r t f
the Pdrisle Pasturur Looks,th,i, Suld'and.
When first I saw my Jeatiie's form,
1 could en' think what ailed me 3
My heart went fluttering pit in pat,
My 'eon haul ?nearly faile.l
She's ne sac neat, and Into, and tight,
All brace does round her hover,
An' look deprived me of my heart,
And I became her lover. •
She's aye, nyc sae Idythe and gay,
She's nye sae blythe and cherry,
She aye sae rein y, hlytho and gay
0, gin I were her dearie.
MO I Dant, whole eatat,,
Or Haptoun's pride to shine in,
Did warlike honors crown my fate,
Or.softer bay 3 entwine in,
I'd lay them a nt Jeanie's feet,
Cold,' J bat hope to Move her,
And !treader than a peer or knight
I'd be my Jeanie's lover.
She's nye, nye sne hiythe and cay
But sat'. I doubt some happier swrin,
Bas gained my Jennie's favor ;
If sae, may every bl is% he her's
Tho' I an never have her's;
But gang she east or gatu, , she west,
'Twixt Nith and, all over,
While men have eyos, or ears, or taste,
She'll always find a lover.
She's aye, nye sae hlythe and gay,&c.
THE SAPPY
I love the heart where evening hci age
Her loved ones from their daily tasks*
Where virtue spreads her spotless wings,
And vice, fell serpent I never basks;
Where sweetly rings upon' the ear
The blooming daughter's gentle song,
Like heavenly music wispered near,
While thrilling hearts are the notes prolong•
For there the father sits in joy,
And there the cheerful, mother smiles,
And there the Inughter•loving boy,
With sportive trick, the eve beguiles ;
nd love, beyond what worl.llings know,
Like sunlight on the purest foam,
Descends, and with its cheering glow,
Lights up the Christians happy home.
Contentment spread her holy calm
Around a resting-place so bright,
And gloomy sorrow finds a Wm
lir gazing nt so fair a sight ;
The world's cold selfishness departs,
And discord rears its front no more,
There pity's pearly tear drop start,
And charity attends the door.
No bitter scandal, fresh from hell,
()rates on the ear, or sealds the tongue;
There kind iemembrance loves to dwell.
And virtue's laced is sweetly sung;
And human nature soars on high,
Where heavenly spirits love to roam,
And vice, as stalks it rudely by,
Admires the Christian's happy home.
Pit have I joined the lovely ones
Around the bright and eheertul hearth
With father, mother, daughters, sons,
The brightest jewels atilt) earth;
to while the world grew dark around.
And lasnion called her senseless throng,
I've fancied it was holy ground,
And that fair girl's a seraph's song.
And swift as circles fade away,
Upon the bosom of the deep;
When pehldes tossed by buys at play,
Disturb Its still and glassy sleep,
The hours have sped in pure delight,
And .wanderiug feet forget to roam,
While waved the banner of the night,
♦bravo the Chrisitian's happy borne.

Results of unexpected interest have
proved the justness of this expectation.—
rhese resu'ts are chiefly due to to labors of
of two Romans, one a priest nod the other
n layman, the Padre tlarchi, and the Che
valier de Rossi. who have devoted them
selves with the utmost zeal rind wall great
ability to the task of exploration. The
present Pope, stimulated, by the efforts of
these schohrs, established some years
s;hce a Commission of Sacred A relneoloay
for the express purpose of forwarding the
.investigations in the catacombs ;And the
French government, soon after •ils military
occuption of Rome, likewise established o
commission for the purpose or conducting
independent investigations in the same
field.
The Mown catacombs conskt for the

rinth composed of possnges upon a vingle
level only ; frequently there are several
stories, connected with each other by slo•
ping ways.
There is no single circumstance. in rela
tion to the catacombs, of store striking and
at first sight perplexing character than
their vast extent. About twenty different
catacombs ore now known and are nom, or
less open,—and n year is now hardly like
ly to piss without the discovery of a sew
tine; for the orig sal number of under
ground cemeteries, asnsc..rtnined fro ~ the
early authorities. was nearly. if not quite,
three tittles this number. It is but a few
years since the entrance to the famous rot
ncoitib of St. Callixtus, one of the ino t
interesting of till, was found by the Cavil
liere ; and it wits only in the spring
of 1b55 that the buried church and Cain
comb of St. Aloxander on th. NIIIIIVIIiaII
War were brought to light. Earthquakes,
floods, and neglect haw obliterated the op.

‘' LIMIRTY AND UNION. NOW AK
Each of the twelve great highways
which ran from the gates of Rome wets
bordered on either side, ut a shortilistance
from the city wall, by the hidden Christian
cemeteries. The only one of the elms
combs of which even a sire at survey has

Cultivation of the Intellect.
There is—l fear—great reason to op
pry hend that the moral training of youth
does not excite parental solicitude propor.
tionnte to that manifested in regard to their
intellectual 'advancement. Many good
parents look mainly to the communication
of knowledge as the proper moans of ed.
seating children and seem to forget that
the heart as well as the head must be in
structed in its duties. It was tint so in the
days of our forefathers. If they lacked
the literary appliances we have, their itt
telleet was not so early tasked, and the
moral nature %yob improved. Here t,nu.t
