Our souls of heavenly parentage, have been expelled from their lofty dwelling places, and, as it were, sink into the mire of earth, a place of exile to our di- vine and eternal nature. But I believe that the immortal gods have placed souls in human b'ddies to give protectors to the earth, who whilst they contern plate the order of the heav- enly bodies, may imitate its unvarying regu- larity in thdr lives. This view is not alone 'the point of my own understanding and obser- vation. but it is based upon the high testimony of the greatest philosophers, I early taught that Pythagoras and his disciples never doubt- ed but that our souls were an out poring of the universal soul, which is God. What more shall T say I am convinced I (eel that a soul go active, a memory so won- derful, this nmcirtl into futurity, so Still, we have not expressed our idea no reverie attains unto it.

THE CONTRAST. has there been .a more remarkable contrast presented to the pub- lic eye than that contained in the letters from the rival camps in Italy. The writer from the camp of the allies can hardly find words pictorial enough for the beauty of the country, the luxu- riance of its produce, the geniality of its climate, or the sensation of pleasure with" which every soldier is penetrated as he pursues his march. The road lies through shady lanes, enlivened by the song of the nightengale, and adorned with the most charming flowers. After a few hours of easy and delightful exercise the troops arrive at the camping place for the night, where they find excellent provisions, all kinds of rural dainties, and a most agreeable bivouac. The next morning, refreshed and joyous, they re- sume their advance, only to go through a simi- lar promenade with a similar conclusion. Turn now to the Austrian army, pondent writing from the same country, _. ____t_ comparatively easy what bis uncle found to be a. work of Suoh difficulty. Had the elder Napo- leon been in possession of this mighty agent, he would have successfully invaded either Eng- land or Ireland, or both. The steam navy of France is now equal to that of Great Britain, and in spite of all the vigilance of the English Channel fleet a mighty army might be landed on the Irish or British coasts. A dark night or a fog would render a descent perfectly practica- ble. The coast defences are of no account, and both the late Duke of Wellington and Sir Charres Napier have declared that a French in- vasion is a matter of easy accomplishment. This it is which renders the statesmen of Eng- land so ill at ease. Their wooden walls" are no longer the impregnable bulwarks which they were found to be in other days, and the ques- tion is not now, can Louis Napoleon invade his neighbors, but will he do it 1 Whether he will do so depends on circumstances, and depends more on the good behaviour of the neighbor than on his own lust of conquest, or on any pposed scheme of aggrandisement which he have conceived. The elder Napoleon SU' may never contemplated it but as a desperate necessi- ty for self-defence. ___ A corres- nmlcr the same date, and aftor march over the very same roads, can scarcely describe the sufferings, the impatience, or the disgust prevailing around him. dust that t shall cease to exist.
