Thou'rt bearing hence thy roses,
Glad Summer, fare thee-well!
Thou art singing thy last melodies
In every wood and dell.
But ere the golden sunset
Of thy latest lingering day,
Oh tell me, o'er this chequered earth,
How hast thou passed away ?
Brightly, siamet Summer! brightly
Thine hours ha 4 floated by,
To the joyous birds of the woodland boughs,
The rangers of the sky,
And brightly in the forests,
To the wild deer wandering free ;
And, brightly 'midst the garden flowers,
Is the happy murmuring bee.
Bitt how to human bosoms;
With all their hopes and fears 3 •
And thoughts that make them eagle wings,
l'o pierce the unborn years?
Sweet Summer! to the captive
Thou has flown in burning dreams
Of the woods,with all their whispering leaVes,
And the blue rejoicing streams;
To the wasted and the weary
On the bed of sickness bound,
In swift delirious fantasies,
That changed , with every sound ;
To the sailor on the billows,
In longings, wild and vain,
For the gushing founts and breezy hills,
And the homes of earth again !
And unto me, glad Summer!
How bast thou flown to me?
My chaOless footstep* naught hath kept
From thy flaunts of song and glee.
Thou bast flown in way-ward visions,
In memories of the dead—
In shadows, from a troubled heart,
O'eithy sunny pathway shed.
In brall'and'sudden strivings,
To 4ing a weight-aside
,lVlids/ these thy melodies have ceased
An all thy roses died.
But, Oh ! thou gentle Summer !
If I greet thy flowers once more,
Brim me again the buoyancy !
Wherewith my soul should soar!
Giye me to hail thy sunshine,
With song and spirit free ;
Orin a purer air than this
May that next meeting be !
From New-York Life Illustrated
Up, up! why should we sadly dream
Of days that time may not restore?
Let's cast our cares on EareVitream,
And gird our armor on once more.
We have been idle dreamers long,
Henceforth let us be workers true,
And do with willing hearts and strong,
' Whatever good we find to do.
Let's nerve our feeble souls to cope
With useless grief and dark despair,
And know ?tis but deficient hope
That lets the shadows, gather there.
Drown sorrow With the voice of song
And let the sunshine glisten through,
And do with willing hearts, and strong,
Whatever good we find to do.
Why should we suffer envious men
To crush our talents in the dust?
If God bath given us one or ten,
Qurselves must answer for the trust.
Then, up ! we have been dreamers long
Henceforth let us be workers true,
And do, with willing hearts and strong;
Whatever good we find to do.
Tell me, my heart, what love is?
It giveth but to rob—
Two souls and One idea,
Two hearts and one throb.
And tell me how love cometh ?
It comes—and ah, 'tis here ;
And whether, pray, it fleethl
'Twas not—'twas fancy mere
And when is love the purest?
When•its own self it shuns.
And when is love the" deepest?
When love the stillest runs.
And when is love the richest?
It hoardeth when it gives ;
And tell me how love speaketh?
It speaketh not—it lives.

=A letter from New York thus speaks
of a celebrated female :
Lola Montez is stopping at Astoria,
,With a kind friend, but alas ! in what a
condition of body and mind ! She is not
exactly imbecile, and yet what, term, will'
more clearly express her mental help
lessness? Physically she is an invalid
of a melancholy description. A female
friend of mine saw her a day or two ago,
and it was enough to make one's heart
bleed to note her picturesque 'innings
of the wonderfully changed woman.—
Lola was costumed in a half night and
half morning robe, and she sat in a pretty
garden, her hollow cheeks,'sunken eyes,
and cadevorous complexion forming a
remarkable contrast to the gay flowers.
She was unable to utter an intelligible
word, , except spasmodically,' and after
repeated efforts. Her mouth was froth
ing like that of one in partial convul
sions, and she was unconsciously wiping
it as little boys do, by drawing it across
the sleeve ahem dress, In fact; she had
the strange, wild appearance and be
havior of a quiet idiot, and is evidently
lost to All further interest in the world
aroi - indlher, and its affairs. And so ends
her eventful history ? What a study for
the brilliant and thoughtless ! What a
sermon on human vanity !
Cr Mrs. Harney, wife of General Har
ney of the United States Army, says a
Paris correspondent of the New York
Herald, died at her residence, No. 20
Rae de BerH, on Monday Sept'r 27th..
The funeral services over her remains
took place at the church of St. Philippe,
Fauburg St. Ft onore, with all the solemn
and imposing ceremonials of the Roman
Catholic Church, of which she, was•a
member. Amongst those who did honor
to her remains I observed her son, son
in-law, and nephew ; Mr. Faulkner, the
American Minister; Mr. Calhoun, a
planter from Louisiana"; Col. Stewart,
son of Corn. Stewart; and many others.
The services of the church occupied
more than an hour, and were very grand
and impressive.
arThe bridegroom of an hour was
Mr. Denning, of Harrisburg, who w
injured on the Pennsylvania Railroad.
He had, for some time, been betrothed
to an estimable young lady, Miss Gray,
and both looked forward to a speedy and
happy union.. When it was ascertained
that Mr. Denning could not possibly
survive, at the mutual request of him
and his betrothed, and with the consent
of the parents of both, they „were mar
rieq, the , minister performing the solemn
and impressive ceremony by the bedside
of the dying man. The bridegroom pas
sed from the altar to the tomb, and the
devoted bride of an hour changed her
wedding garments for the habiliments of
ifirThe New York. Herald thus con
cludes a long article on Edwin Forrest :
"So Mr. Forrest has given us the fresh
est and most agreable sensation of the
day. It is not likely to die out very
soon, either. We understand that he is
engaged three hundred nights, and re
ceives five hundred dollars per night.—
This engagement will be finished in about
a year and a half, so that Mr. Forrest
will enjoy a clear income of one hundred
thousand dollars per annum--a pleasant
admixture of the bank note and the lau
rel. And when he finally retires from
the scene of his present triumphs, we
should not be at all surprised if some
sensation constituency in the city of
.Philadelphia should take him up and
sendhim to Congress.
sIEFA Texas Judge concluded the trial
of a man for murder by sentencing him
to be hting that very day. A petition
was immediately signed by the bar, jury,
ann ;people, praying that longer time
might be granted the. poor prisoner.—
'The judge replied to the petition that
"the man bad been found guilty, the jail
was very unsafe, and besides, it was, so
very uncomfortable, he did not think any
man ought to be required to stay in i
longer than was necessary." The man
was hung.
