The strangers soon awoke, and upon jreltino: up to dress, beheld the sad reality of a Yankee trick. Having much money in their saddle-bags, they ascertained which way the Yankee had gone, and obtaining a small skiif set out after him the skiff was light, and mo- g rapidly, an hour or two bronchi The Duke on his next visit said, '-Well.

The tioer, however, had the advantage, for he had grasped March before the buds bcca.n to But many good orchardisls now doubt the propriety of trimming at this season and Judge BucI, of Albany, is decidedly session of their clothes and saddle-bags.

It has been indeed contended that trees should never be trimmed; that nature gave them no more than she in- tended they should keep, and that by robbing the tree of its natural branches, we inflict on them an irreparable injury. This doctrine may lead us too If we must not curtail the works of na- ture, we must suffer our nails to crow and while drinking, he stepped back, jumped into the skiff and pushed Amid the exertions of the crew, he plied his paddle, and the skiff darted away from the flat boat.

Ilis employer detected in the cloth two small holes, within half an inch of each other, and told him he must pay ties. The insects must be provided a fine of a shilling for a hole. for, and would be in want of their por- tion of foliage, and if the inferior ani- mals did not take from it their customary supply, it was then the duty of man to act as regulator and to take from the tree O i as much as it sometimes loses in the I the same price natural course of events.

There, are no elements of spirit of in the name- of VAN or his to excite the enthusiasm which finds vent in soul- stirring strains. His character is emi- nently common-place. It rouses no no sym- pathies. If any bard should attempt to put I'an Jiuroi'' into impassioned verse the whigs of fancy would fail into col- lapse, and the step which is said to sepa- rate the sublime from the ridiculous would bo passed in a moment. Song is the language of cheerfulness and hope melody is allied with good feeling the high impulses of patriotism, of all noble devotion by which heart and soul are inspired in a great cause, find an utterance in music commensurate with their exalted nature. The use of songs then in a political can- :ass, in place of violent invective and bit- ter reproaches, which often implant vin- dictive animosities ami cultivate bad feel- ings among citizens, is a good sign of the times. It is good not only as il prog- nosticates the triumphant success of the it is good also as constitu- ting a new feature in politics. People will not quarrel when their political dif- ferences are expressed in songs. Good humor is generated by singing. There is generally more or less wit in thesepolitical melodies of the something at all events to disarm partisan asperity of its sting, or to takeaway its poison. Let the songs go on then; let the chorus swell in full resounding tone- A ny cause which can be made the themeof song is not abaci cause any man whose name gives spirit to music, whose deeds can infuse life and melody. into odes and "ballads, has something ster- ling in stuff. When FUKJ.INUIIUYSKN was nomina- ted there was some fear that his name would not run well inlo verse. As for T IKNKY of the name hadbeen woven into all sorts of measure long ago. It had become a household to music for all instruments. We shall sub- join some specimens of recent acts to show that the name of ITRKI.I is not only an excellent one in all political respects, but a capital one for a song also. The first rhymes on the occasion of Mr. FUKLINTMIUYSKN'S nomination were made by Mr. Hardi'ii, of Illinois, who was on his way to this city in the Wil- mington train when by a train from Balti- more the news was brought of the nomi- nation to the. Vice Presidency. Here is I he stanza throw our banner to the breeze, Its ample inlds ulolt nre rising In u'ord.s il. there disjilays Tim nnnios of Clay and Krelinghnyscn." On the morning of ihe great Ratifica- tion Convention the Whigs of Vermont, as they inarched in procession, sung to a popular air a very animating song, in, which the foregoing rhyme was already embodied.
