MKIOS,  X E A T' S DYING The following lines were written by JOHN on his and are the last verses ovorpcnned by that gifted yoang poet. It will bo remembered that he died through intense grief on account of the too severe and unjust criticisms of Gifford, the English Juvenile. The youthful poet was removed to Italy, where he expired; and the last sad words he whispered wore, "I die ofa broken heart." He.was- buried in the protestant burying pluee-'atth'ebase of the pyramid- of Cyins Oestus, near Home. 'JWany pieces have .appeared purporting to ba his last pro- duction, but these now transcribed are the last that ever emanated from his pen: My spirit's .lamp is fiiint and weak, My feeble 'sensos'bow; Death's finger pales my His seal is on my brow. My heart is a withered leaf, Kiicl) fibre dead and sear; And near mo sits the spectre To drain each burning tear. The enrth isbrijjlit with buds and bees, Tlie air with purple The winds are sxviming in the. trees, Or sporiin" on the streams. But not for me the blossom's breath, Nor winds, nor sunny I languish, in the arms of death, And feod my soul with I sigli .Jo back again, My heart is weak for But worj is me" my sighs are She Jlies-from misery.

When tossed-on the iilone, But now it is cold and foreverat rest, he calmly lies under the stone, How often liis eyes were saen briming with tears, To mhi'jlc willi oihwrs in grief; But joy would rekindle the light of his smile, When pourinjjthe bulm of relief.

A poor tailor being released from thiitrou. blosome world and a scolding appeared at the gate of Paradise. Peter asked him if he had ever b'efen tb purgatory? said the tailor, "bnt I haVe been married." uOh, said Peter, "that's all the same." The tailor had aoareely got in when a fat, ttutlo-taling alderman, came up puffing and blowing. "Hallo! you ftlloWj" laitj he, "openthfc door."

He was u hugh mass swarthy fea- bearing the impress of ninny a scar; piercing dark eyes, that seemed to possess the power of blasting gleaming eyes, such as taunt the memory painfully; a rant luxuriance ol coal blacic-hair, immense whiskers and moustache. This savage looking figure was habited in Iho costliest clothing, and adorned with a. profusion of jewelry, while the outlines of several murderous weapons were plainly distinguishable beneath his gaudy vast and superfine coat. Nor did he need these to make him an object ol terror. A. conhisseur io the science of belligerent -gymhastice would have confidently pronounced him a match for any five men .-en '-the decu, wilhoutany aid froth lea'd bt'.'colii'Bteel At many failures, he pre- vailed on a; vvea-lthy; young merchant of .Notches, to join at a game of "poker." They sat down beside a small table near the bar, and were TKjon absorbed in the: most perilous of all excitement, of which the two.alluringingredients are the vani- ty and-pride of individual skill, and the uncertainty of general hazard. At first the stakes were small, and the run- of cards seemed wholly in favorof the chant; but presently they bet and; gold eagles-arid hundred dollar notes showered bourd with extravagant; ardor; and the current of fortune changed away from the young and fioxved to the prbfess'idnal -gambler in a.stream like the ocean's tide, AE usually happens in such cases, his Want of success only .piqued a-nd'madderted the loser, and he 'sbught to'recover himself by venturing such desperate ventures as could not but deepen and confirm his ruin. And thus they'continued during that long summer night. Tha iritenahy of their excitement became eqiJivaierU'to insanity. Every nerve was every energy of the brain was taxed to the teelh were set as those of antagonists in mortal sweat rolled from their brows like great drops of rain. The passengers formed a circle around the players and looked on with that in% terfist which extraordinary concentration of intellect and passion never fails to in- spire bosoms that, shudder at the excess. The merchant and the gambler attracted all kept many a wake .by gazing till morning. Among the latter was one presenting a countenance so .piteous that it might have melted hearts of marble 'to tears. A pale-arid beautiful face 'peeked from the weeping all the while as if op-pressed by some dreadful lion of immedfaie sorrow. It was the merchant's lovely wife weeping her fare- well -to departing hope'-! There was one spectator, also whose appearance and actions excited almost as much curiosity as the players did them- He svas a tall spare man, of thirty, with handsome features, golden hair, keen bine eyes of preterna- tural brightness, a'nd his firm, thin lips wore a perpetual mistenous smile, of the strangest, most inscru'talile meaning. With the exception of his red calico shirt, his person was dressed, wholly in buckskin, ornamented with long flowing tassels, and wilh fig- ures wrought out of variegated beads, and after the fashion of some western Indians. He stood close beside the card lablttj and held in his left hand a sheet of j paper, In Ms right hand a large pencil, with which ever and anon, he dashed offa few words as if engaged in tracing the progress of the game. Still the merchant and gambler vered in. their physical and mental toil. The dial of the stars, with its thousand fingers of golden fire, pointed to the worldrsbadows of midnight; but still they did not pause. It still was "Shuffled and cut and up, and I call you, and rake down the pile." Towards morning, a tremendous storm The red lightning flashed hail poured down like a frozen tnte great river roared till .it rivalled the loud 'thunderi of heaven; and the very pilot at the wheel vvis alarmed. But the mad players heard it not; What] was-the tumult of the raging elemeht to them, whose destiny hung on the turn- ing of a A-nd the smiling blue eyed stranger in buckskin still stood by them, with his pencil and paper, calmly the developmant ot the game.
