In the Philadelphia Public Ledger we have the proceedings in this important trial of the first four Days. The witnesses on the part of the prosecution had All been examined As Well As a part of those for the defence. The prosecution fully established the following facts a that the steam boat Caroline was attacked and burned by a company of Canadian out Laws that a. Durfee one of the persons on Board the boat was murdered by a shot through the head that Mcleod was seen to enter one of the seven or eight boats that went on the expedition a that he was thought to be recognized by one of the attacked parly in the in oath that he was seen Early in the morning succeeding the destruction of the boat at the Little town opposite the place where the boat was that he was heard to brag and vapor As to what he had done in the Ai Faiia that he was heard say j killed one did Yankee and Here is the blood of him these facts were established by Many witnesses. On the part of the defence it was proven that Mcleod on the night of the destruction of the Caroline staid at a tavern near Chippewa on the Canada Side that he knew nothing of the expedition until the next morning and that he expressed regret on that account As he would like to have been one of the murderous gang. Commissions of the evidence of some one or More in each boat engaged in the expedition have been taken which show that Mcleod was not in either of the boats. Mcnabb the getter up and planner of the expedition swore that Mcleod was not one of the company As he had a Correct and full list of them made out for the purpose of bestowing some Mark of distinction on each of them. In Short it was fully proven by the Oral and written testimony of a Large number of witnesses that Mcleod was not engaged directly or indirectly in the affair of burning the steam boat Caroline but that he boasted of being so is As fully established. The result of the trial no doubt will be an acquittal. The country however will have sufficiently vindicated her Honor by a refusal to surrender Mcleod without a trial. We rejoice in the Prospect that this matter is about to be adjusted in a manner that will prevent Var an l at the same time sustain our National dignity and character. The Cabinet. John c. Spencer of new York has accepted the appointment of Secretary of War. The new Cabinet is now full or. Wickliffe having previously accepted the place of postmaster general. Virginia. At a special election in Albemarle county for a Delegate to the legislature to fill a vacancy Alexander Rives Wiig was elected Over s. F. Leake Loco Foco by a majority of 17 votes. Or. Rives is a brother to senator Rives. Maryland election. The whigs have sustained a defeat for gov Fer nor. Homas the Loco Foco candidate is elected by about one thousand majority. The House of delegates is against the whigs by a Small majority. The Senate is decidedly whig. The whigs lost their candidate by inactivity. Thomas vote Falls behind that of Van Buren last fall but a few hundreds while Johnson s vote is thousands Short of that received by general Harrison. For their inertness and indifference the president s vetoes and general course in relation to removals from and appointments to office Are Given As reasons. The same reasons seem to have i spirited the opposition in proportion As they dispirited the whigs. Georgia. The election for governor and members of the legislature took place on the 4th inst. We have received returns from Only a few counties. Chatham and Richmond counties give Dawson the whig candidate for governor of 236. Last fall they gave Harrison a majority of 475. P. S.

He was indicted for from Mexico. From the new Orleans Buletin of september 25. Vera Cruz papers to the is. Instant contain some interesting items of intelligence. Another struggle is about to take place among the different leaders of Mexico for the Mastery in that self abused country. Santa Anna Lias collected a considerable Force at be Rote where he reviewed his troops on the 30ih ult. Be eral corps were on their March from different Points to join the main body. No one supposed this Force was intended Ismedia Toiyo to operate either against Yucatan or Texas though it Iii it eventually take one or the other direction according to circumstances. At Jalisco in , a state convention had Boon a fold. It declared in favor of the Constitution of 1824�?formed a state convention and Apponi sued Gen. Paru uns governor. The state of Guanajuato Vera j Cruz tan Hulipas Jalapa and indeed All of Southern Mexico have followed that example and pronounced in favor of restoring the Constitution of l?�24. The censor of the 1st september the latest received asserts that Quot governor Paredes approaches the Central capital operating in unison with Unnold Friend who has with him some the old Friend al used to is undoubtedly Santa Anna and vol in it is considered that the censor paper has Long been the Mouth Pirce of the sentiments of that chief it Trivus Force to a report that he has formed a a Nim with tic federalists for the double purpose of the present usurpers from Power and regain in reins of government which he lost on his d feat at san Jacinto. A gentleman who arrived at Vera Cruz with the Conducta on the 31st, and who has arrived Here in Forn s that they met Santa Anna s army on the Road and the belief was general and freely expressed by the citizens that he was marching up it a the capital. The cosmopolitan of Mexico assures its readers that Gen. Arista who was charged by the government with subduing the texans and indians is about to proceed to the capital ostensibly with the purpose of putting Down the insurrection of Paredes. General Bravo has been called to the Capitol and we Ore informed that Bustamente is inclined to March against Paredes in person but that he is opposed in this step by Almonte. Large quantities of goods it is complained of Are smuggled through the Pacific ports of Tepic and Mazatan and that some of them find their Way nearly Over to the Gulf towns the Small pox and yellow fever both prevailed to a considerable extent at Vera Cruz. A Conducta arrived at Vera Cruz on the 30th, from Mexico with $633,000. The following is an extract of a letter to the editor of the new Orleans courier Vera Cruz sept. 1, 1841. Since our last there has been a revolution which bids fair to upset the present government. It commenced about the beginning of last month in Guada Lasara. On the 25lh ult. Vera Cruz pronounced in its favor. Jalapa parts of the slate with the City of Guanajuato and most of the Southern states of Mexico have All declared for the plan of Nabisco Wlinich is to put Down the 15 per cent Law Reform Tho Pauta de Capisos and the Tariff with several other reforms. It is thought that Santa Anna was privy to the whole of it and More especially As he has gone to Porte where they say he has 1,200 followers and there is Little doubt he will go on to Mexico with but trifling if any opposition and will of course put Down the present authorities and will place himself and friends in their places. It is to be hoped that this revolution will create favourable changes in fact it is positively expected by the generality of the better classes of people and we Are inclined to think business must revive Here in a very Short time. Government must give some impulse to importations which Are the principal support of their administration. Personal or direct taxes will always meet with great opposition. Never before have things been in a worse state than they Are now in Vera Cruz and letters from Mexico assure us that the times Are still worse there. From Texas. Gen. Houston has been elected president by a Large majority. We copy the following from the Houston Star Quot news from the learn by a letter received from san Patricio written by the Hon. Is. Hagler that a party of about fifty men consisting of the company of minute men of san Patricio and a few volunteers from Gonzales lately made an excursion to the Southern extremity of padre Island and in afternoon of the 17ih ult. Surprised and captured a mexican Captain and nine soldiers who were stationed at a Rancho at Itiat place. These soldiers Mude no resistance. They were taken with their arms and horses to Sun Pali Scio and placed in the hands of the chief Justice of that county to be exchanged for the same number of texan prisoners in Matamoras. The Captain stated that the me Cican Antii crities of that City would consent to make the Exchange Ond he has written to Gen. Ampudia to request that or. Dimmit May be included in the number of the prisoners to be exchanged. According to the statements of these prisoners and information received from some Irish settlers at the Southern extremity of pure Island there Are now Only one Hundred infantry in Matamoras. In Camargo col Fernandez has Only fifty men finder his Eon mind part infantry and part cavalry. The horses of the cavalry Are he so poor Liat they can scarcely walk. On the Little Colorado about 25 Miles from Matamoras colonel Villareal is stationed with a bout forty a ranchers country militia higher up the country col. Ramirez is Rangner with from fifty to one Hundred men he is regarded As a robber and is a traitor to the traders of either party. According to these the whole mexican Force on the Rio Grande does not exceed three Hundred troops. The volunteers now assembled at san Patricio Muster nearly fifty men and they Are daily expecting an attack from Villareal or Ramirez. It is quite doubtful however whether either of these colonels will Muster valor to Marfi an attack upon a set of men who seem willing to Cope with five times their number of Northampton mass., Liere is not a place where spirituous liquors can be obtained abolition lecturers disgraceful. Conduct amp a. A number of imported lecturers on abolition have visited our City during the past ten Days and attempted on several occasions to enlighten our citizens on the subject of slavery. We suppose that they Are missionaries hired by the anti slavery societies in the East to awaken us to a sense of our sins and to Tell us what is our duty in regard to the unfortunate slaves of the South. We Are opposed to All such itinerant demagogues. If our own citizens choose to meet together to discuss any subject by which the interest and welfare of Community could under any circumstances be affected we would not have the least impediment thrown in their Way. We believe free discussion to be one of the most glorious attributes of a Republican government. But while we wish to see every Good citizen secured and protected in that right we will not by our presence or other Means countenance hirelings who travel from one Community to another exciting and disturbing All without the least Benefit to any. To those who Are willing to listen to such men we offer no objection. To the conscientious and disinterested Patriot who acting under the influence of deity in the discussion of abolition we will at All times extend the hand of Fellowship and bid him god Speed. But god will protect and defend his chosen servants. The abolitionist he sends Forth will go where the sin exists and As he protected Daniel in Olden Days so will he defend those who go into the Den of the slave Holder to do his work. Slavery is both a moral and a political evil. In the latter sense we have nothing to do with it but in the former it is our duty to Bear constant testimony against it and at All times to rebuke the spirit of despotism whenever it May attempt to infuse itself into our institutions beyond that Point acknowledged in the formation of our government. This much we say for ourselves. While we condemn so decidedly the introduction of Eastern gentlemen to enlighten us to condemn As far More dangerous and More to be feared the Mobo cratic spirit manifested by some persons on one evening when an abolition meeting was held in the Street. We understand that application was made to the owners of the several churches in the City for the use of the lecturers but that All were refused except one which was occupied one evening and then closed against them. They had occupied the Warner building but representations having been made to tie trustees of that House of the probability of a mob and injury being done to the House in Case it were again occupied the trustees saw proper to close it also. As an alternative the abolitionists vent in the Street and whilst a or. Burleigh was speaking several eggs were thrown at him or into the crowd and we regret to say that several ladies who were in attendance had t fir clothes much injured. Some of our Best and most resp Octabie citizens attended participated in and sustained that meeting. Citizens with to Weir wives were there whose characters have at All i Imes commanded respect in this Community and it was their i Trot thus to assemble and Thoy should have been j to tract a. Such an outrage is a disgrace to the town and every honorable citizen should frown Down any attempts of Tho Lind. This is not the Way to put Down abolition on the contrary it is calculated to Advance that party. There Are Manv persons who will join and defend a persecuted scat from a principle which is commendable in human nature. A More effective plan was adopted As we Are credibly informed by our neighbors in the Village of Milton. An Aioli Tim lecturer requested the use of the Public school House permission was Given him to occupy it it was lighted up and the itinerant took his seat at the desk he waited anxious from the lady s Book. Gentility by t. S. Arthur. Did t i see you walking up the Street with a Young lady yesterday Williamr said Anna Enfield to her brother who had but a few Days before returned from new York after an absence of some a months perhaps you did i was in company with a Young lady in the afternoon replied the brother Well who was she i did not see you until after you had passed the store i was in and then i could not see her face it was Caroline Murry you know her i suppose Caroline Murry Why brother what were you doing in her company and Anna s face expressed unfeigned astonishment. Why really you Surprise me sister i Hope there is no blemish on her character. But what is the matter i feel concerned to know there s not much the matter brother but then Caroline Murry is not genteel. We Don t think of keeping her company a indeed and you Don t associate with her because she is not genteel. Well if Lam any judge of gentility Anna Caroline Murry is about As genteel and Ladylike As any Eirl i know always excepting of Couise my own dear sister Why brother How you talk you Don t certainly pretend to compare her with Ernestine Eberly and Zepherine Fitzwilliams whom you have seen Here several times no i do not replied the brother emphatically Well they re what i Call genteel and Caroline Murry would t be tolerated in the society where they visit and Why not sister Havn t i told you Beca Iise she is not considered genteel that is the reason but i Don t understand what you consider genteel Anna if i know Vahai gentility Means Caroline As far As that is concerned is in every Way Superior to Ernestine Eberly and Therine Fitzwilliams. Now William that is too bad if any other Man had said so to me i would never have spoken to him again As Long As i lived but seriously Anna what do you mean by gentility asked the brother. That s a question More easily asked than answered but you know As Well As i do what is meant by gentility. Every body knows i know what i mean by it Anna. But it seems that a o Don t agree on the subject for i Call Caroline Murry genteel and you Don to so you see Itiat different things May be called by the same name. Now what i wish to know is what precise meaning you attach to the word or Why do you think Caroline not genteel Why in the first place she Don t go into genteel company. People of the first rank won t associate with her Here ensued a pause and the brother said Well Why Don t they associate with her Anna Quot i Hope she has not been guilty of improper or immoral conduct of no nothing of that. I never heard the slightest reflection on her character replied her sister. But then genteel Young ladies Don t work in the Kitchen like hired servants and she docs. And besides this Call on her when you will and she is always doing something. Why i am told that she has even been seen at the chamber windows fronting on the Public Street with her head tied up sweeping an d making the Beds and Clarissa Sprissler says that she saw her once with the parlor windows open sweeping by for the appearance of his audience lie waited soul und dusting like a servant nobody is going to Asso but no one came the candles were extinguished and so the matter ended. Was it not effectual a Richmond Pallad Nim 0 the veto Power of the president should either be modified or Congress entirely dispensed with. In the present state of parties in this country the idea of securing a majority of two thirds in both houses of Congress in favor of any important measure which is opposed by the president is perfectly preposterous. It can t be done. In this state the governor has a limited veto and he sometimes exercises it but alien no serious evil can grow out of it. He can pronounce his Quot forbid Quot a As sternly As can the president hut having done so s simple majority of the people s representatives can set aside his objections and carry the measure in spite of the veto. This is at it shoud be. Whilst the effects of Hasty and inconsiderate legislation Are guarded against in clothing the governor with Power to throw Back for the reconsideration of the legislature such Bills As he cannot approve it preserves unimpaired the fundamental principle on which our institutions Are based that the majority should .

C., August 7. 1841, More mystery extraordinary circumstance suicide of the Lover of Mary Rogers Daniel Payne the Lover of Mary Rogers was found dead yesterday afternoon at Hoboken near the spot where the body of that unfortunate girl was discovered und a circumstances that warrant the belief that he committed suicide. The Coroner or. Morritt summoned a jury of inquest immediately but subsequently adjourned to this morning at 11 o clock in order to give Opportunity for the friends of the deceased to be present. Payne called at the Plienis hotel Hoboken on thursday afternoon. His appearance was singular and attracted much attention. He had no hat on and asked a gentleman present to loan him one. He eventually obtained a hat and As he was going away lie remarked Quot perhaps you Don t know who i am i ant Payne the Lover of Mary Rogers. No one Knovs Iii troubles Quot he then left and no knowledge was had i it of his movie Nants until he a s found dead yesterday after noon important papers Are said to have been found upon his body but of their character to Are not informed.

Cite or be seen in the Street with any one who has it the spirit Tobe above the condition of a hireling. And besides this whenever she was invited to balls or parties she never would stay later than ten or eleven o clock which every one knows to be vulgar. Somebody had to go biome with her of course and the choicest Beau in the company was almost sure to have his Good nature and his politeness taxed for this purpose. Once i heard her say that she considered the theatre an unfit place for any Young Ady she offended the whole company and has never been invited to a party among Gentee people since and is that All said William Enfield taking a Long breath. Yes and i should think that was enough in All conscience replied the sister. So should i Annas to make me respect Hep Why William Why Anna Bat seriously William you cannot be in Earnest and seriously Anna Are you in Earnest of course i am Well sister i m afraid my old fashioned notions for such i suppose you will Call them and your new Fangold notions for such i must Call them will not chime Well together. All that i have heard you allege against Caroline Murry raises instead of lowering her in my estimation. So far As a genteel and truly Ladylike deportment is concerned i think her greatly Superior to the two friends you have named As pinks of gents Ity Anna looked up into the face of her brother for some moments her countenance exhibiting a mingled expression of Surprise and . But Vou Are not going to walk with her in the Street any More i Hope she at length said. And Why not Anna because As i have said before she is not Gene genteel you were going to say. But that allegation you perceive Anna has no weight with me i do not consider it a True one Well won t talk any More about it just now for it will be of no use said the sister changing her voice and manner and so i will change the subject. I want you to make a Call or two with me this morning on whom on miss Eberly and miss Fitzwilliams it would t be right for me to do so would it you know i Don t consider them genteel said the brother with affected Gravity. Of nonsense brother Why will you trifle but seriously Anna i do not consider that those Young ladies have any very Strong claims to gentility and like you i do not Yish to associate with Tii Ose who Are not genteel in that Way William i shall get angry with you. I cannot hear my most intimate friends spoken of so lightly and at the same Tinie of Cusco of a want of gentility. You must remember that you Are reflecting upon your sister s associates you must not and i know you will not get angry with me for speaking plainly and you must do me the Justice to believe that in speaking As i do i am in Earnest. And you must also remember that in saying what you did of Caroline Murry you spoke of one with whom your brother has associated and with whom he is still willing to associate Anna looked very serious at this nor could she Frame in her own mind a reply that was satisfactory to her. At last she said a but seriously brother William won t you Call on those Young ladies with me yes on one condition a Well what is that Why on condition that you will afterwards Call with me and see Caroline Murry a i cannot do that William she replied in a positive tone. And Why not annal Quot a i have already told you. I cannot perceive the Force of that reason Anna. But if you will not go with me i must decline going with you. The society of miss Murry cannot be More repulsive to you than is that of the misses Berky and Fitzwilliams to to you Don t know what Abii fire talking about William that is my impression about Yon. But come now sister let us both be rational to each other. I am willing to go with you if you will go with me yes but William you Don t reflect that in doing As you desire me i will be in danger of losing my present position in society. Caroline Murry is not esteemed genteel in the Circle in which i move and if it should be known that i visit her i will be considered on a level with her. I would do any thing to oblige you but indeed i would to risking too much Here you would Only be breaking Loose replied the brother from the slavery you Are now in to false notions of what is truly genteel. If any one esteems you less for being kind attentive and courteous to one against whom suspicion has never dared to breathe a Vord and whose whole life is a Bright example of the pure and High toned principles that govern her that one is univ Orthy of your regard. True gentility does not exist my sister merely in a studied and artificial elegance of behaviour but in inward purify and taste and a True sense or what is right All exhibiting themselves in their natural external expression. The real lady judges of others from what they Are and neglects none but the wilfully depraved. True there Are distinctions in society and there Are lines of social demarcation and All this is right. But we should be careful into what social sphere we Are drawn and How we suffer ourselves to be influenced by the false notions of real Worth which prevail in some circles that profess a High degree of gentility. I hold that every one no matter what May be his or her condition in life fails to act a True part if not engaged in doing something that is useful. Let me put it to your natural Good sense which you think the most deserving of Praise Caroline Murry who spends her time in doing something useful to her family or your friends the misses Eberly and Fitzwilliams and those constituting their particular Circle who expect service from others but never think of rendering any and who carry their prejudices so far As to despise those who work Anna did not reply and her brother said i am in Earnest sister when i say that you cannot Confer a greater favor upon your brother thai to go with him to see Caroline Murry. Cannot i induce you to comply with my wishes i will go she replied to this Appeal and then hurried away evidently no Little disturbed in her feelings. In half an hour she was ready and taking her brother s Arm was soon on the Way to miss Ernestine Eberly s residence. That Young lady received them with All the graces and fashionable airs she As sume and entertained them with the Idle gossip of the Day interspersed with an occasional spice of envious and ill natured remark. Knowing that her brother was a close discriminator and that he was by no Means repossessed in her Friend s favor Anna her self observed her More narrowly and As it were will his eyes. It seemed to her that miss Eberly never was so in interesting or so malaprops in what she said. The Call on Zepherine Fitzwilliams came next in turn scanning her also with other eyes than her own an a was disappointed in her very dear Friend. She looked through her Ond was pained to see that there was a hollowness and want of any thing like Frue strength or excellence of character about her. Particularly was she displeased with a gratuitous sneer thrown out at the expense of Caroline Murry. And now with a reluctance which she could not overcome Anna turned with her brother towards the residence of the Young lady who had lost caste because she had Good sense and was i industrious. I know my sister s lady like character will prompt her to right action in our next Call said the brother looking into Anna s face with an encouraging smile. She did not reply yet she Felt somehow or other pleased with the remark. A few minutes walk brought them to the door and they were presently ushered into a neat in which was the Young lady they were seeking. She sat near a window and was sewing. She was plainly dressed in comparison with the Young ladies just called upon but in neatness and All that constitutes the lady in air and appearance in every Way their Superior. I believe you know my sister said Enfield on presenting Anna. We have met a few times she replied with a pleasant a embarrassed smile extending at the same time her hand. Miss Enfield took the offered hand with less reluctance than she had imagined she should but a few hours before. Somehow or other Caroline seemed to her to be very much changed for the better in manner and appearance. And she could not help during All the visit drawing contrasts Between her and the two very dear friends she had just called upon and the contrast was in no Way favourable to the latter. The conversation was on topics of Ordinary interest but did not degenerate into frivolity or censorious Ness. Good sense manifested itself in almost every sentence that Caroline uttered and this was so apparent to Ana that she could not help noticing and involuntarily approving it. What a pity Anna once or twice remarked to herself that she will be so singular. The Call was but a Brief one Anna parted with Caroline under a different impression of her character Thon she had Ever before entertained. After her return with her brother he risked her this abrupt ques Tion. Which of the Young ladies Anna of the three we called upon this morning would you prefer to Call a Oier sister Anna looked up bewildered and surprised into the face of her brother for a few moments and then said i Don t understand you brother William Why i thought i asked a very Plain but i will make it plainer. Which one of the three Young ladies we called upon this morning would you advise me to marry neither replied Anna promptly. That is Only jumping the question lie said smiling. But to Corner you so that there can be no escape i will confess that i have made up my mind to marry one of the three. Now Tell me which you would rather it would be Caroline Murry said Anna emphatically while her Cheeks burned and her eyes became slightly suffused. William Enfield did not reply to the hoped for though rather unexpected admission but stooping Down he kissed her glowing Cheek and whispered in her ear then she shall be your sister and i know you will love one another he said truly. In a few months he claimed Caroline Murry As his Bride and her Good sense and winning gentleness of character influenced Anna and eff oct Nelly counteracted the false notions which were beginning to corrupt a Good heart and to overshadow a a sound judgment it was not Long before she was fully sensible of Tho real difference which there was Between the characters of her two friends and that of Ier brother s wife and also Between True and false gentility. Although Caroline Murry had been proscribed by a certain Circle in which false Pride instead of principle was the governing motive she had still been esteemed among those who knew How to look beyond the surface. As the wife of Enfield she at once took a position in circles where those who had passed her by As unworthy would have sought in vain fur admin Hion and m those circles she shone As u Bright particular Star.

Can it be possible that Earth Iii its wide circuit or the human heart in its loftiest Range has a treasure More dear than one or All al them it was not if we remember the Strain of the poet till she bore aloft on her jazz liner pinions the bitter burning tears of a penitent child of Earth weeping Over his guilt and his deeds of blood that the glad creature of heaven was greeted with a Wal Como to her Eden Home. How Beautiful this orientalism it is not merely a splendid Conception of the poet gilded Wilh gorgeous drapery of Eastern song but what is far belter it is in Harmony with teachings of inspiration. And yet and Yec there Are feelings within that impel us to ask if the tears of the penitent re Morse stricken sinner gushing warm up from the heart be the Only or the most precious of on that can be borne to the Gates of Paradise does the wide Earth with its hear jewels its splendid deeds and its heaven descended attributes contain nothing from the magnificent Palace and the Happy mansion to Tho Rayless hut that May be deem cd As an acceptable offering to the spirits above we May err but it appears to us that the tie which binds the husband to the wife of his Bosqui is the Golden thread of life and the affection is the holiest and Dearest of All other passions. Indeed it embraces within itself and centres upon the very liotart s shrine the purest and better portion of them All. The undying strength the tenderness and gushing ardor of other affections is admitted. Their develop meets Are delightful and what a Sweet Mellow radiance do Livoy spread Over the pathway of life were a Golden Ray from Tho throne of heaven itself. The love that exists Between Young hearts in the hey Day of life has been Sung and Felt and pronounced the love of sister for sister of brother for brother of a brother for his sister his Early play Nate and the Sharer of his sports and Little Griefs and the return of that love from the sister s heart the love of a Mother for her child Aye and above All the love of a father for his daughter How Sweet a gym a endearing Are they ally but that affection which exists Between a Young wife and the object of her earliest love Tho creature of her thoughts and fee liners As Well As the Centre of her Virgin heart is Chaster purer holier than them All. Lide cd it is All. In one and when the tie that binds them is broken when the Young Mother is stricken Down to the cold Martji and death feasts upon her lips her dimples and her smiles when the Young father is snatched away from the Side of her the Mother of his children and the being of his ten Derezet love what a void is left what agony what grief presses upon the spirit of the surviving one we feel As though a Golden Harp to whose Seraphic tones we Are listening had suddenly stopped As we Strain the ear to catch the Nia gic sounds. The survivor for the moment seems to die and the living heart to lie in the cold Tomb with the dead and gone. The presiding spirit is gone from the family Circle and the bereft As Quot the household goods Lay scattered around Quot no longer to to gathered up by that presiding one just removed from Earth to heaven exclaims in the touching language of Ruth Tho Beautiful gleaner of Bethlehem Quot whither thou guest i will go and where thou longest i will Lodge. Thy people a Kjall be my people and thy god my god. Where thou i est will 1 die and there will i be a a it must be so. If either of the affections which nurtured and ripening this Side the grave animate the Frame that springing from Earth at first mingles with each again at last be heaven born it can be no other than that which binds the husband to the wife of his bosom. It was hut yesterday that a Friend a Yozing Man of Fine intellect of Noble heart and one Well known to Many of our readers was suddenly snatched by the hand of death from All the endearments of life. Surrounded by every thing that could make existence pleas it and Happy a wife that idolized him a children that loved him As they Only can love and friends devoted to him the summons came and he Lay upon the bed of death. But a few Short ago she to whom he was wedded placed a bridal ring upon his Finger upon the inside of which he had a few words privately engraved. The husband would never permit the giver to read them telling her that the would come when her wish should be gratified and she would know the secret. Seven years glided away and a Day or two since when conscious he nest soon leave his wife forever he called her to his bed Side and with his dying accents told her that Tho hour had at last come when she should see the words upon the ring she had Given him. The Young Mother took it from his cold a Tiger and Tho heart stricken with grief eagerly read Tho words i have loved thee on Earth i icily meet thee in heaven. How touchingly Beautiful this simple incident a the garnered Joys of years Rush into that single Luoi ment As the words foil upon the years of the Young wife. Sorrow and wedded love Ond the brightest dreams of Tho world the heart s Dearest treasures the endearments of the life that is past and the bus of Tho life that is to come How they mingle at Thi hour As the Widt iwed Mother lays aside the ring and weeps Over the lifeless form of Trio husband Quot of Hor bosom 1 1 n i acis Rio corp by. 25 i Iddis g. 1�. ,2� a fit Chidic a g.
