I'm dying now, There is a dampness on my brow; The pang is o'er; without a sigh I'll pa's away and sweetly dm : But, oh! that pang cost many a tear! 'Twas hard to yield up friends so dear. But that is passed—lll weep no more, With me the dream of life is o'er. And now, sweet sister, nearer come, And tell me of that hapy home ; Shall I its pearly gates behold, Its streets all paved with burnished gold? And in that clime so strangely fair, Say, shall I feel a stranger there Or will their harp-strings sweetly blend, To welcome me, a child and friend But softly, sister, softly speak, And say—these tears upon thy cheek ! Weep not for me—oh, do nor pun! I would not woke to earth again. Thy hand—so often clasped of old— Thy soil warm hand, for mine grows cold, And now, dear sister, let me rest My wearied head upon thy breast, And fold thy arias about my form. It shivers 'ncatli death's dark, cold storm. But sing ine, sister. crc Igo, Our song—our childhood's song, you know— And let its gentle numbers flow, As last ) oft sung, soft, sweet, and how— And V.111:11 its last faint echoes die, Anal the bright tears steal from thine eye— shall not heed theta us they stray, I shall be gone—far, far away! Select Otorics.. A PATRIARCH OP THE NINETEENTII CENTURY [Translated front the French.] It was at the end of a wedding dinner—. "To the health of the happy couple!" cried in a voice like a tailor's, a man with blue spectacles. " May they have posterity numerous as the sands of the sea!" That is a good toast, observed my neighbor, but if this gentleman found himself with so numerous a posterity on Isis hands, his blue spectacles would hardly help him out of the difficulty. Alas did you know It4ron Forbach ? Never Then as you did not know him I mean to speak to you of him. He was a worthy man,a worthy Baron, and a worthy German, a friend of my fath er; his only litult wits trying to act Priam, the primitiye man. He had tarty daughters, sir! Forty ! 1 exclaimed, do you not exaggerate. Forty, I tell you, he had this notion, and took lit erally the toasts at his wedding, for he married seven times, n Inch was not too often for the project he had in his head. A child every year! and al. ways a girt; but t.e fluttc.ed h.p. of a pension, ho even petitioned the Germanic con federation, which bid him walk off: Instead of obeying and " walking," however, he shut himself up in his castle and passed his time in studying the names of his forty girls ; but us lie had a bad memory lie could never completely succeed in re taining them. When he wanted Wilhelmine, it was Helen he asked for, and when he wanted to play with Conradine, the youngest, he called out of the window of Leopoldinc, the oldest of all: a maiden of forty years of age. What could the Baron do? He had recourse to all sorts of mnemonical arts, which ended by filling his brain with confusion. Tired of the struggle, he gave up trying to remember the names of all his children, hat it was hot any more easy fur him to recall their faces—tit passing the village square, he would caress and embrace a youug girl belong ing to some neighbor, under the idea that she was one of his own; or else surprising one of his own children in his own orchard, he would pull her cars most vigorously, convinced that he was dealing with a little rogue from the village who krill COMO to steel his apples. What pain to the lM.e. of a futh• or as tender as Baron Forbach.! —Yes—and the ears of his family too! For there is no reason to suppose that this cartilage be. longing in the young ladies was any less tender than the father's heart. True, let us drink on that and I will resume. A proof that the Furbach damsels had tender ears, is that they detested their father, the more so as they were badly dressed. The Baron although worth a hundred thousand crowns, could not buy forty dresses in a season, from the fashionable merchants; this inspired in him un original idea. He convert. ed one wing of his castle into a shop, where was spun and woven stuffs for the use of his children, hoping that thus their clothing would cost him less. But during this scheme he was subjected to a number of hoaxes. A manufacturer from the next city wrote to propose to him to advertise for the materials of which he had need each year un der a system of sealed proposals submitted to ad judication. Another who had the army clothing contractovished to sell him, at a reduction, fifty soldier's cloaks which the government had refused. The Baron did not reply, but put in operation his own manufactory. The result was that his forty girls wearing always dresses of the same ma terial and color, could be recognized by their uni form. This was a first success. But mark what followed! When a dress was beyond farther ser vice, it was given to some poor person in the vil lage, so that at the end of a year nothing but the uniform was anywhere to be seen, and the Baron instead of forty daughters, appeared to have a hundred. —The deuce ! But it mind have been somewhat burdensome to feed all this flock. Don't speak of it, but let us take another glass It was not exactly the wine that cost so much in the house for they drank nothing but water. As to tho rest, be bought a flock of sheep every month, and led them to pasture himself, en as to save the expense of a shepherd. He had wished to assume the patriarch and he was now completely one; from a Baron he had become a shepherd. At the end of each month not a sheep or lamb remained. " If they had time to multiply"—he used to say. The pastor of the place, I mean the Lutheran minister, a worthy man too, consoled the Baron sometimes—" Courage,' said he to him, " heaven has blessed your seven marriages, and it must cost him something to receive the benedictions of hea ven." " May the devil bless you," responded the Baron. "I see myself reduced to beggary, I have taken the scripture literally, that is my fate—l have been blessed until I am cursed." " But Monsieur," the ladies would say, looking at him with much curiosity," what an astonishing man you arc, who would have believed you, judg ing by your appearance, capable of becoming so often the father of a family." .. . The Baron turning his back upon them murmur ed, " Forty girls! If they were forty boys I would have the resource of making them shipboys," In the meantime the daughters grew mortally tired of the old castle. Every evening the Baron passed them in review in the court yard, before closingthe gates; but as the village children some times assisted at the ceremony, and a number of strangers wearing the uniform slipped in, he rarely had the right amount. The total ranged usually from 90 to 45. One evening he counted only thirty nine. Let us proceed in order." He recom menced the roll. Leopuldine did not answer: two months before she had eloped with an herb mer chant whose red coat had captivated her. The Baron, indignant at such misalliance, went in pursuit of the merchant, but without being able to discover him. On his return two others had dis appeared. Again he began a search, lint without any better success. When he came back five more were gone. Then the Barott in despair inserted in the paper an advertisement that he had but thirty-two daughters left to run away with, and considering their inclination for travelling, no time should be lost by any one whn wished to profit by the oppor tunity. At this all Germany cried aloud with in dignation. It was scandalized, and justly so. The thirty-two who remained, brought a suit against him to determine his incapacity to have charge of a property and a family. Except Duncantel, said I, never did a more un fortunate father exist.' Nothing was wanting ex cept that he should become rheumatic. I confess it, but that would have been too much. Give me, if you please, a glass of champagne that I may strengthen myself against the woes of this worthy man. —Here aro two. But did he gain the lawsuit? No, sir, Heavn, tired of blessing him, decided upon cursing him. The Baron was defeated, and not content with this, succeeded, thanks to an able lawyer, in passing fur a mandinan, and coming himself to be shut up in an asylum at the expense of the state. This was certainly ono way of ob taining a pension from government; he lived in the height of happiness, ten years longer, enjoying the privilege of having no children, and he yielded his last sigh in the arms of a manic who believed himself the Apollo Belvidere; on one side of him a man who imagined himself triple, and on the other one who was taking himself for a burning house was constantly crying Fire! After his fortunate sentence, the officers, seized his mansion and his manufactory. His daughters were scattered throughout the universe. Fedora married a circus actor. Helen became a lady and took Wilhelmina fora feminine de chambre, Lconora fur sister, and Concradina for mother. Helen had, as one may see, the bump of lovo strongly developed in the highest degree. Marguerite turned cook. Another, the youngest, made a marriage of lovo with a peer of England. Leopoldine died of en indigestion from eating too much celery. Each of them - got along the best she could. —And the conclusion ()fall this, said I. —How you do not perceive the conclusion ? 'Why, it is es plain as your nose— Firstly. Never seek to play the patriarch, nor to take literally the history of Priam, and his fifty children, considering that is doubtful whether Troy or Priam ever existed. Secondly. Never say to the bridal pair. may you be happy, and have plenty of children.' Tnird LlGhtatg tv jut. wyrn ago ..Love all, and meditate seriously the words or the dying Baron— Would to Heaven,' said lie, ' that some witch bad blighted me on my wedding night.' Unfortunately the words were addrasied to the one who believing hi , nself a house on tire, and who responded by cry. ing out—'A fire engine, in the name of heaven bring an engine.' Thus speaking my neighbor seized hold of a fresh bottle of Champagne, which was the reason why I raised no objections to his conclusions 1 At midnight, at the close of a marriage feast, all the conclusions are tipsy. I=l GAMBLING, IN FOUR SCENES C=l2 A genteel coffee-house, whose human screen con. cools a line of Grenadier Bottles, and hides respect. able blushes from impertinent eyes.—There is a quiet little room opening out of the bar, and here sit four jovial youths. The cards aro out, the wines are in. The fourth is a reluctant hand; lot does not love drink, or approve the game. He en. ticipates and fears the results of both. Whf is he hero? He.is a whole-sonled fellow, and is afraid to seem ashamed of any fashionable gaiety. He will sip his wine on the importunity of a friend newly come to town, and is too polite turmoil that friend's pleasure by refusing a part in the game. They sit, shuffle, deal ; the night wears on, the clock tell. ing no tale of passing hours, the prudent liquor fiend has made it safely dumb. The night is get. ting cold; its dark air grows fresher; the cast is gray, the drinking and glinting and high.farious laughter are over, and the youths wending home ward. What says conscience? Nu matter what it says; they did not hear and we will not. What. ever was said, it was shortly answered thus : " This has not been gambling, all were gentlemen; there was no cheating, simply a convivial meeting. No stakes, except the bills incident to the entertain ment. If anybody blames a young man for a lit. tle innocent exhileration on a special occasion, he is a superstitious old bigot, let him croak." Such a garnished name is made the text to justify the whole round of gambling. Let us then look at = In a room so silent that there is no sound except the shrill cock crowing the morning, the forgotten candles burning dimly over the long and lengthen. ed wick, sit four men. Carved marble could not be more motionless, seve their hands. Pale, watchful, though weary—their eyes pierce the cards, or fur. Lively read each other's faces. Hours have passed over them thus. At lengths they rise without words; some with a satisfaction that only makes their faces brightly haggard, scrape off the piles of money; others, dark, sullen, silent, fierce, move slowly away from their lost money. The darkest and fiercest of the four is the young friend who first sat down to make out the game. He will never sit down so innocently age in. What says he to his conscience now ? ^ I have a right to gamble; I have a right to be damned, too, if I choose;— whose business is it ? I=ll7llll Years have passed. He has seen his youth ru. 'nod, at first expostulation, then with only silent regret, the consenting to take part of the spoils lie had himself decoyed, duped and stripped them, without mercy.—Go with me into that dilapitated house, not fat from the landing at New Orleans. Look into that dirty room. Around a broken table, sitting upon boxes, kegs, or rickety chairs, see a. filthy Grew dealing cards, smooched with tobacco, grease and liquor. One has a private face, burnish. ed and brandy, a lock of grizzly, matted hair, half covering his tillain eyes, which glare out like a wild boast's from a thicket. Close by him whence a white.faced, dropsical wretch, vermin covered and stenchful. A scoundrel Spaniard and a burly negro (tho jolliest of the four) complete the group. —They have spectatons--drunken sailors, and og.

Here, hour draws on hour, sometimes with brutal laughter, sometimes with threat and oath end up. roar. The last few stolen dollars lost, temper too, each charges the other with cheating, and high words ensue, and blows, the whole gang burst out• of the door, beating, biting, scratching, and rolling over in the dust. The worst,the fiercest, the most drunken of the four, is our friend who began by making up the game. 1= Upon this bright day, stand with me, if you would be sick of humanity, look over that multi. tudo of men kindly gathered to see a murderer hung. At last a guarded car drags on a thrice guarded wretch. At the gallows ladder his cour. age fails. His coward feet refuse to ascend— dragged up, he is supported by bustling officiate— his brain reels, his eyes swim, while the mock minister utters a final prayer by his leaden ear. The prayer is said, the noose is fixed, the signal is given—a shudder runs through the crowd as he swings free. Aller a moment his convulsed limbs streach down and hang heavily and still ; and he who began to gamble to make out a game, ended in st+bbing an enraged victim whom he had fleeced, has here played his last game—himself the last stake—Rev. H. IV. Beecher. TALLEYRAND ARNOLD There was a day when Talleyrand arrived in Havre, hot foot from Paris. It was in the darkest hour of the French Revolution. Pursued by the bloodhounds of the Reign of Terror, stripped of every wreck of property or power, Talleyrand se cured a passage to America in a ship shout to sail. He was going a beggar and a wanderer to a strange land, to earn his bread by daily labor. tt Is there an American staying at your house 7" he asked the landlord of his hotel. "I sin bound to cross to the water, and would like a letter to some person of influence in the New World." The landlord hesitated a moment end,„then re. plied : "There is a gentleman up stairs, either from America or Britain, but whether an American or an Englishman, I cannot tell." He pointed the way, and Talleyrand—who in his life was Bishop, Prince, and Prime Minister—as. cended the stairs. A miserable suppliant, he stood before the stranger's door, knocked and entered. In the far corner of a dimly lighted room, sat a gentleman of some fifty years, his arms folded,and his head bowed on his breast. From a window di• rectly opposite, a flood of light poured over his forehead. Ills eyes looking from beneath the downcast brows, gazed ht Telleyrand's face with a peculiar and searching expression. Hie face was striking in its outline ; the mouth and chin in. dicative of an Iron will. His form, vigorous, even with the snows of fifty winters, was clad in dark, but rich and distinguished costume. Talleyrand advanced—stated that Ito was a fu. gitive—and under the impression that the gentle. man before him was nn American, he solicited his kind and feeling offices. He poured forth his history in eloquent French and broken English— "lam a wanderer—an cxne. lam tbrued 51.. Ay to the Now World, without a friend or home. You are an American ! Give me, then, I beseech you, a letter of yours, so that I may be able to earn my bread. I am willing to toil in any manner—the scenes of Paris have filled me with such horror, that a life of labor would be a paradise to a career of one of luxury in France. You will give me is letter to one of your friends. A gentleman like you has doubtless many friends." The strange gentleman rose. With a look that Talleyrand never forgot, he retreated towards the door of the next chamber, hie head still downcast, his eyes looking still from beneath his darkened brow. He spoke as he retreated backward; his voice was full of meaning— " I am the only man born in the New World who can raise his hand to God and say—l have not a friend—not one, in all America." Talleyrand never forgot the overwhelming sadness of that look which accompanied these words. " Who are you!" he cried, as the strange man retreated townsda the next room. "Your name." "My name"—with a smile that had more of mockery than joy in its convulsive expression— " my name is hencelict Arnold." He was germ. Tallcyrand sunk in a chair gasp. ing the words— " Arnold the traitor!" Thus you see lie wandered over the earth, another Cain, with a wanderer's mark upon his brow. Even in that secluded room at that Inn of Havre, his crimes found him out, and forced to tell his name—that name the synonym° of infamy. The last twenty yeurs of his life are covered with a cloud, from whose darkness but few gleams of light flash out upon the page of history. The manner of his death is not distinctly known. But we cannot doubt that he died utterly friend. less—that his culd brow was not moistened by ono farewell tear—that remorse pursued him to the grave, whispering John Andre! in his ears, and that the memory of his course of glory gnawed like a canker at his beast, murmuring forever " True to your country, what might you bare been, 0 Arnold the traitor. =I THE FIRST VIEW OF JERUSALEM. A writer in the Providence Journal furnishes the following impressive account of his first view of the Holy City: My dragoman Flapaw and myself,mounted on fleet Arab horses, had ridden from early dawn, hardly drawing rein, in my desire to reach the Holy City before sunset. We had left the baggage mules he hind in the neighborhood ofHamla,ty follow more slow y. Leaving the fine flower-sprinkled plain of Hintla, we entered into the" hill country ofludea," barren, desolate of inhabitants, and without gran deur. We stopped a few moments at the village of Abougosh, the former resit:once of the famous Arnb robber.ohieftain, whose sons are now in Constant!. ' noplc, under the eye of the Sultan, expiating the sins of their sire, and the evil power of the familp is broken op. Until this place and a little Outlier on, there is some slight appearance of verdure, olive trees, ap ricet trees, and patches of grain; hut after this, one comes upon scorched, volcanic mountains, on which there is no life. Yet even among these, one may yet see evidences of the ancient system of terracing for agricutural purposes, and this is the only way by which Judea proper could have been a produc tive land. It looks now like a land of curse, and notof blessing. We met frequently pilgrims going to and returning from Jerusalem, and two or three companies of Armenian merchants, richlydressed, with large retinues of armed slaves, and fine horses. The road wound through narrow circuitous valleys, sometimes mounting up abrupt steeps, and decend. ing precipitously, a road well fitted for those scenes of robbing and treachery for which it is so famous. One small village after passing Abougosh had [WHOLE NUMBER, 951. rather a smiling appearance. it was nestled in St quiet buw-like valley, and a little brook, which ran through it, nourishing a thick nursery of lemon trees, whose perfume scented the air.—The people looked handsome and amiable. One bright little muscleman wished us a prosperous journey to 'EI Kudds,' (the Blessed City.) for Jerusalem is a holy city with the Mahometan, and next to Mecca in sanctity.—Here and there were remains of tow. era placed at narrow passes, vestiges of the cruse. ders.—The Hebrews were mountaineers, but unlike their Samaritan neighbors, their mountains pos. sesacd neither picturesqueness nor fertility; their life must have been a continual struggle with na ture, and this may account, in part, fOr the obsti. nate energy and resolute egotism of national char. acter. We at last reached the valley of Elan, where David slew Goliath. A ruined mosque points out the spot which tradition assigns as the place of the event, and the character of the ground and scene corresponds with the Scriptural account. There is " the mountain on the one side" towards Jeru salem where the Israelites stood, and " the moun. rain on the other side" towards Pitilistia where the Philistines stood, and there is the valley between them." There is the course of the brook where David found the stones for his sling, and the way taken by the army of the uncircumcised in their flight towards Gath and Ekron, was undoubtedly the very path which my horse's feet had just passed over. I thought a moment upon the youthful hero, inspired by faith and the might of the One Omnip.. otent God, and then spurred on, for I knew that Jerusalem was nigh, though I feared to ask how near. We ascended to the summit of a hill, and a mass of towers and minarets came to view upon an op posite mountain, and I cried out "Is that Jerusa lem?" No," answered Hapsaw," but,"—He had hardly spoken this, before the long line of heavy battlemenled wall, and the many points and domes of the Holy City burst to view, unmistakable be low ate. 1 dismounted. It is useless to enter hem into a description of the feelings which possessed me. I did what most travellers have confessed themselves ,compelled to do at this moment. I fell uponmsy knees, and tears rushed into my eyes. JUSTICE IN TUNIS. WO cut the following capital story from the N. Y. Spirit; where it appears among the selections. Whence it originated, we wot not; but it is a very pretty Munehumanism, as it stands, and on the whole reads quite FitENCllll.—That 'lest brickbat' a bout Capt. Li' s desire to leave behind him .a name for generosity and greatness of soul,' etc., nearly upset our risibles. Commend us to the Tunis mode of doing justice, in-Jew-rious though it may be for some of the natives to o—Bey. A certain Capt. Baud. rd left Marseilles for China; but being hulietted by tho winds, he hauled up in the harbor of Tunis, to wait weather. The collect. or of the port Caine on board. Capt. Bronlard rep resented that lie was treited for Canton, that be had nothing to do with Tunis. and that he onlyput in from distress of weather. But the collector 'es hibited manifest necessity that ho should fork over. Capt. Bauclard did fork over in a rage, but instant ly repaired to the palace of the Bey, demanding jU9tiCe. _ 'Good Frank,' said the Hey,' 1 am your friend, God is great. NVllat the devil do you want of 'Higliticss, answered the captain. 'your custom house has robbed inc. I have forked over—fink back.' 'Excellent individual,' answered the Bey, `in this country, when we have the dust, we keep it. The original acquisition is a difficulty. To fork back is a thing unkuown to Africa.' 'But shall I not have justice?' 'Certainly, every one has justice In Tunis. Will you have it in French or Tunis fashion?' 'Highness, I have had a law-suit or two in France. Justice in French fashion! God forbid.' 'But I don't press it on you,' observed the Bcy. If you choose the French after all, I will speak to your consul.—lle loves justice, good man; three of my subjects applied to him three years ago for ins. munity, and they got it next year, I think—for he loves justice.' •French justice! never! give me the Tunisian; I am in a hurry!' 'Be it so then. God is great,' said the Bey—. what is your cargo?' 'Marseilles soap, and twenty thousand cotton caps.'t It is well. Go way and be tranquil.' - The Bey summoned the Vizier. Vizier, said lie.' there is no God but God, and Mehemet is the prophet. We love justice. Wo love the Franks.—Proclaim that every Jew who appears to morrow out doors without a cotton cap, will have a little transaction to settle with me' There were twenty thousand Jews in Tunis,and not one cotton cap in the place. They all made their wills; but when they learned through an offi cer of the customs that Capt. Bauclard had lots of the desired article, there was enough said—the captain sold the invoice at $2 the cap. He rushed to the palace and poured out his thanks. Not so Fast,' said the Bey; .1 am not done yet. Call my Vizier.' The Vizier appeared. Proclaim' said the Boy, 'that every Jow who keeps a collo,' cap another hour will have a troub le with you.—God is great, end I am a lineal des cendant of Malinmet.' The Vizier made a grand salute, placing his left leg on the back of his neck, according to the custom of the Court and retired. When Capt. Banelard returned to the dock, he found the twenty thousand Jews. already awaiting him, caps in hand. Ho might have had the caps for nothing, but, desirous to leave behind him a name for geitercNity and greatness of soul, he par. chased them at two cents apiece. = A Goon A NECDOTE.-A correspondent of the Troy Budget tells the following good story:—" It seem, t the person who blows the bellows of the organ at St. Luke's Church, also attends to the furnace for warming the building, and having occasion, during service, to mind the fires,' lie left the bellows is charge of a coachman lately imported, and 'green' is the Emerald Isleof his nativity before the ap pearance of the potato rot. During his absence, the ' Gloria in exceliis' came, in the order of the exercises, to be chanted, and Patrick was directed to furnish the organic element. A short time clap. red, but no music followed the touch of the lady who presided at the instrument. Blow,' whispered the fair organist.' Blow!' repeated the loader; and Blow! blast you blow!' echoed the entire choir, but not a puff found its way into the vacant pipes, to ware the slumbering harmony. An investigation now took plane, and Patrick was found behind the organ—with both his hands tightly clenched around the bellows.hiralle, (a stick of sonic five feet long and two inches thick,) the end stuck in his mouth, his cheeks swelled to the utmost expansion, his eyes disteuded, and the perspiration streaming from his face—engaged in the vigorous but vain attempt to force his breath through the pores of the wood into the body of the instrument." It is, perhaps, un necessary to say that some little time pissed before the choir were able to soma their mouths into that serious pucker requisite to the proper performance of the musical exercises."
