Why, lady, should'st thou vainly sigh
For beauty's magic spell?
Or let, perchance, within thine eye
The tear of envy swell?
Why should'st thou idly, thus regret
A simple gilded toY.
And on its lustre; childlike, set
Thy dreams Of sweetest joy?
Hath partial Nature from thy doWer
Withhold each better part? .
Bestows she neither spell nor power
To win up 6 the heart?
Save the mete etodel of the face -
The eye of brilliancy—
The beau idea form of gracei
And perfect symmetry?
Are there no other gems then these
Comprised within her store,
And boasts as true a charm to please=
That you their lack deplore?
Is there no beauty of the minds
Nor loveliness of soul?
Possessing magic pow'r to bind,
Within their sweet control,
All that the heart may sigh to win.;
The bosom yearn to share 7
111-favoured shells oft yield within,
Rich pearls beyond compare.
Dwells there no fascinating wile
In smiles that kindly wreathe?
No syron sweetness to beguile, -
On tones that gently breathe? •
Is,there no magic in the glance
Of fondly-beaming eyes?
Or in the gushing tear, perchance,
When tender pity sighs?
May not the worth of these aspire
To rank with beauty's sheen, -
And kindling oft a purer• fire,
Remain forever green?
Andlorm they not the magic zone—
The cestus Venus wore
To bind with beauty not their own,
The charms that you deplore ?
Then why - , aweet lady, idly sigh,
For hues that Soon decay?
The joys they win full surely die,
When berinty fades away ;
The flow'ret WitOring in its time,
No more attracts the bee,
That fondly sought its fragrant prime,
And banquetted in glee.
RIVAL MADMEN.- The famous Blondin
has a rival at Niagara in the penal' of
Signor Farini, who will open his mad
performances. on the 10th. He has se
lected a place near the outlet of the Hy
draulic Canal, a short distance below the
Niagara House. where the river is about
200 feet wide-=the widest place between
the Falls and Lewistown—and where
the banks are also very high. His:bills
state that he will walk from the Ameri
can side and on returning he will draw a
rope up from the steamer Maid of the
Mist, fasten it to his cable, and descend
it head foremost to the deck of the
steamer, (t-little distance of perhaps 150
feet.) He will return to his cable by
the same route. This is a performance
never before undertaken by Blondin .or
any one else.
YrOI4ALS IN HATTI.— , An official Hayti- ;
en document, giving the number of
births, deaths, marriages, and divorces,
in various villages -in different parts of
the empire, during three months, sho ' .
that the whole number of childeen irn
in these months were 1,900, of orn'
1,740 were born out of wedlock. In Port
an Prince, the capital, out of 420 chil
dren born only 30 were legitimate. If
any other country on. the face of the
earth—where the marriage institution is
recognized—can exhibit such a mon
strous disproportion between the legiti
mate and illegitimate births, we know
not where it is to be found. Freedom
in the Hayti islands is rather the unbri
dled license of the wild animal than the
rational liberty of a man.
NEGRO 00.NSPUI.ACY.—The Richmond
(Vs.) Dispatch says on Wednesday or
Thursday, last, as the overseer of Mr.
Samuel Hairston, a wealthy farmer of
Halifax, in that State, was in his office,
six negroes came in and told him that oth
er negroes were plotting an insurrection
in the woods, and offered to take hip to
'the place. They led him into the woods,
until they came to a newly dug pit, 1 hen
one of the negroes told theoverseer hat
that was his grave, and offered him -
teen minutes to prepare for death. The
overseer, however, had a revolver, which
he drew and shot four of them dead,
wounding a fifth in the abodomen, when
the sixth "cleared out." The wounded
man is dangerously , injured.
recent season of the Alexandria dotiuty
Court, two mea of mixed blood appeared
before the Court,- and, having proved ,
themselves to be octoroons, or possessing
one-eighth negro blood,. asked• the C ourt
to certify that they were not negroes..—
The Court, having heard the evidence;
granted the certificate asked for. The
object of the process was to release the
parties applying from the obligations
and penalties attached - to free negroes
by the laws of Virginia.
L. Baker, Editor and Proprietor.
Baltimore correspondent of the Times
writes : "A matter rather singular, for
cibly impressed itself upon me some
weeks ago, but I' neglected noticing it
up to the present time. Passing along
our streets the next day after the an
nouncement of the death of Prince Je
rome Bonaparte, I saw his wife—Miss
Patterson—now near her eightieth year,
walking out, in her usual costume, un
concerned as if nothing had happened.
She certainly knew the fact ; but know
ing her eccentricities, I was not surprised.
It is no uncommon thing to see this ven
erable lady in the public marts attend
ing personally to business. She often
collects her own rents, and takes a flirt
at stock speculations when the fever is
up. At all times an elegant crown jewel,
glittering with diamonds of the purest
water, is displayed upon her forehead,
whilst her arms are white, skin, smooth
and tender as a maiden of sixteen. She
is really a remarkable woman. There is
a deep stoicism and unbending philoso
phy, coupled with independence, in her
compositions which one out of a thqu
sand, male or female, does not possess.
Her every thought is replete witla•favor
itism for royalty: Republics she esteems
commons ungrateful ; and now, though a
citizen of our domain, and without, any
thing special to plume herself upon
touching lmperial favors; she lives in the
ideal of to belle France. Her greatest
ambition is to -hear of her grandson—
young Jerome—now in the French army,
rising to honor and imperial distinction.
A large portion of her annual Ilieciine,
which is very large, is appropriated to
his service. At her demise it is pre
sumed, he will inherit her entire for
tune, as she is not on terms of intimacy
with her son here."
charming maiden, in Indiana, the fortu
nate possessor of a considerable proper
ty, became engaged for marriage to a
green, unattractive, clnmsey boy, of 18
years. The day for the wedding was fix
ed, and the course'of rustic love running
smoothly enough. One day, the groom
expectant appeared before his mistress
with wrinkled brow, quivering chin, eyes
filled with ' tears. "My father says 1
shan't marry, unless I first pay him for
my time." This was all he said. The
woman at once sent him to the sharp
parent, with instructions to leatn the
lowest rate of exChange at which the
time could be transmuted into money.—
" I will sell you;" said the fathet, " for
$2OO, and not.,a cent less." . " And 1 will
buy you," returned the damsel, when the
offer was communicated- to her. She
paid the money, married the property,
and has since so assiduously cultivated
it, that a great improvement, personally,

The editor of the Washington Evening
Star, writing from Harper's Ferry,speaks
as follows of some of the evidences of the
manner in which the work of surveying
was done by Washington in his early
days: " When engaged in engineering
lower down the river—that is, between
Harper's Ferry and Georgetown—l have
not unfrequently hunted up and found
"beach marks' made by the hand of
Washington himself, their position being
so distinctly and accurately indicated in
his notes of his surveys (still preservad)
as that there was rto mistaking their pa
ternity. In all, hundreds, it may be, of
civil engineers have labored over the
route of Washington's original survey , of
the Potomac in• the last thirty-three or
four years, and one and all,they will tes
tify that the evidences remaining of his
professional labors prove his remarkable
method in all things as unerringly as his
subsequent glorious military and civil
fifiguished little Frenchman cafe at
the office of the N. Y. Tribune a few
days since and is thus described ; Re
is a little, fair-hatred,'wiry fellow,_with
keen blue eye, as bright and piercing as
an eagle's. His grip is vice-like in As
firmness., and altogether he looks as the
Roman might who knows no fear, On
the 10th or 12th of September Ike will
commence his exploits at ;Tones' Woods,-
walking over a 2,000 feet rope,.stretched
from masts 200 feet. above the ground.
On the 29th inst., at the Falls he will
cross over his roils' at 4 6'clock, with a
Woman on his back; and at 9 m., in a
blaze 'of fireworks: On' th'e'ocU6 3 sion of
the visit of the Prince of Wales to the
Cataract, Blondin will cross the rope on
stilts four feet high. He looks none the
worse for his recent roasting. •
THE CICiAlt STEAMER.--Tlie Baltitore
eorrespdrldent of the Charlestown Cour
ier writes i "I learn that Thomas Winans
our opulent; enterprising, fellow-eitiken,
is determined to e*liibit; for a brief per
iod, his novel drift Alongside the Great
Eastern, during her anchorage at Annap
ohs Roads,which will constitute a double
attraction. The (tiger) steamer is one
of the funiest-looking things imaginable.

is deSigned to plunge through waves,

essary, all Safe the pilot's house or plat-;

sanguine, more than ever, that his plan
of ocean steam navigation will be a suc
cess. He has, on trial trips, made twen
ty tiles per hour; and, it is said, has
the full knowledge within himself, from
private experiments, that his boat can
be put np to an average of thirty, or per
haps thirty-five miles per hour. So con
fident is he that the invention will even
tually succeed that, in due'time, he pro
poses to build another vessel; of similar
construction, on a much more extensive
scale. The one now built has cost hilt(
about $200,000.
THAT SWINDLE.-A correspondent
writing to the New York Post, says of
the Japanese swindle : A lady, who ex
amined the forty Japanese apartments
before the guests arrived, says such
splendor and extravagance h - ad never
before been seen in this country. All
this, let it be remembered, for people, of
simple habits, and who knew nothing of
otir American extravagances. She stat
ed that the beds of the Japanese were
costly beyond estimate, and that they
were curtained around with the richest
and most expensive laces. These apart
ments were all newly furnithed, and pro •
bably the Lelands have di:landed the
original cost of those ariticles in their
bills. They not only charge for enter
taining the Japanese, but for maga&
ciently furnishing the rooms they occu
pied! A. bill of particulars will settle
this question.
A few days since a case unparalleled in
the . hiStory of surgical operations upon
one's self took place
. in Memphis, Ten
nessee. A man named Patrick Dugan,
who for some time had been under med
ical treatment at the city hospital, left
that institution and went to a neighbor.;

Dugan returned to the hospital after get
ting the axe, and went to the rear ofthe
building, where, placing his leg upon
a stump, with a stmeal insensibility of
real or pretended indifference'to paini
he actually hacked the member off near
the - ankle. When discovered a • short
time afterwards, he was still standing
by the stump, steadying himself by one
hand, and swinging the injured leg, the
oot being still attached by a portion of
he skin, as gaily as though he was the
most delightful posturer known.
are daily railing the President, or some
member of his Cabinet, find themselves
likely to exhaust their stock of invec-,
tives, they can renew their supply by the
study of certain,productions of their pre
deeessors in the same vile business. In
a publigation now before us; issued in
1800, we find Washington charged with
having " embezzled 'the public money,
being " knowingly
_prejured," being ".a
hypocrite " and with having "sacrificed
the dearest rights of his country;" While
the incumbent President was assailed
for "having completed the scene of ig
nomiay Which Washington began."

of about 1,000 a week, half by births
(their excess :'over deaths) and half by
