REMINISCENCES. duar to every feeling heart, Thoughts, on the blissful past, The happy days, when love and joy, Around our hearts were cast, How swift ourtho'ls will take their flight, Those happy hours renew, Roam through familiar haunts of youth, Again those scenes review, That aged tree, whose branching limbs Threw 'round a cooling shade, In summer beauty, stands there yet, in lovely green arrayed. The little brook, with flower gem'd banks, Is rippling on the same, But the days of childhood, they are gone, They cannot come again. Metliinks, down near the wood I eeo The dear old uchool house stand, While ringing shouts of of childish glee, Come from a merry band. And hark I hear their joyous call, Sweet sounding o'er the plain Alas! alavi 'tis a'l a dream, They cannot come again. Where are those youthful friends 1 loved, So joyous, young, and gay, Whose hearts were pure and innocent In childhood's happy day [away, Like night's fair dreams they've passed And left no trace behind, Save in the mem'ry of their friends, Ot loving deeds, and kind. Our life is but a passing dream, When taken at its best, We soon must die, and leave this earth, In the damp grave to rest. But still we have a joyful hope, The sweet assurance given, Though parted here forever more, We all may meet in Heaven. LIZZIE.

Hard and Hollow Ware, Iron, Drugs, Medicines, Paints, Oils, Stationery, leans Delta says that by kindness manifested to the officers and soldiers of the captured gar- rison of Vera Cruz, and a respectful regard to the prejudices and customs of the people, he has succeeded in a great measure in soften- ing their anticipation, and allaying their jeal- ousies against our country and One ajt of generous concession to the army of Vera Cruz produced the most kindly feelings among men, who a short time before had ex- hibited the most deadly hostility towards our country. On the capitulation of the town, Gen. Scott intimated to Gen. Landero ci wish to be introduced to those of his officers who had distinguished themselves in the defence of the town. Some six or eight officers were accordingly presented to Gen. Scott who com- i plimenleri them highly on their valor and good I conduct, and refused to take their parole. This act of magnanimity was not thrown away up- on the Mexicans. In all the towns through which they passed they gave the most favora- ble reports ot the liberality and generosity of the commander-in-chief of the American troops. THB WAY THEY DO exceedingly pleasant to glance over the administration prints just at time, to see how batty the magnanimous fellows are, m trying to remedy the shocking faux they committed, when they countenanced the of the little Autocrat at Washington, and his liege follow- ers in trying to break down the Old Hero of Buena Vista.' The manner in which they have let reminds one of the French government pa- per, which chronicled Napoleon's approach to Paris from Elba. It was something like this, as near as we can recollect: The TIGER has landed at Frejus. The TYRANT has paHsed through Aving nen. GENZRAL has arrived at Lyons. The Emperor passed through Auxerre. His Gracious Majesty, the Emperor entered Paris to-day, amidst the acclamation of de- lighted Banner. Corrv.n AND SILVER or LAKE first arrivals from Superior have brought down ft number of who have during the winter n prosecuting their works in the march of mineral. All of our previous accounts are nothing in son to the account) now given of the mineral wealth of that region. When we predicted short time since that this region would be able to supply the world with copper tt much price than Cornwall, we had not anticipated there were large of lilver, rivaling the mines of Mexico. We yesterday had the p tenure of seeing Mr. Tho man C. the agent of the Brittth North American Mining Company, who iion liia way Jo Montreal with several cuke of mineral taken from the location known the "Prince and from the vein discov- ered by Col. Kins 9 the last season, on Spar Island. It has been traced to the main chore, wheie the specimens nowhere were obtained. The mineral is a vein etone strongly charged with metalic silver. It is UBssociated with cal- careous epar, quartz, surphale baryteand cloud or vein stone. Thu specimens of silver from the south ahore are very rich, but not of the character of thosa found by Mr. on the north shore. We have been informed by.thoie who have seen and examined specimens from the celebrated mint's of Durango and Chihua- hua, in Mexico, those obtained from Lake Superior have a very strong resemblance to them. All the indications in that country would lead us to Lelieve there mineral wealth beyond calculation almost; but at the same lime it would not be amiss for those who are engaged in mining to remember that there is much uncertainty in Free Press.

This principle strikes at Ihe root of all the rights and privileges of Ihe mu- ter, and if acknov. ledged, or permitted to gain foothold, will soon wholly destroy the value of slave property. When such muni be the of .the pre- cedent sought to be established, it becomes every citizen who respects the institution of slavery, and desires its protection, to protest ugn'msl this alarming innovation.
