The following beautiful lyric Bv Holmes,
far excels anything we ever read, with the ex
ception of Drake’s “American Flag.” It was
written when some Goths proposed to break
up the brave old Frigate Constitution, and is'
worthy of the subject:
Ay, tear that tattered .ensign down !
Lohg has it waved on high,
And many an eye has danced to see
That banner in the sky.
Beneath it rung the battle shout,
And burst the cannon’s roar—
The meteor of the ocean air
Shall sweep the clouds no more !
Her deck, once red with hero’s blood,
Where knelt the vanquished foe,
When winds were hurrying o'er the flood,
And waves where white below,
No more shall victor’s tread,
Or bow the conquered knee—
The harpies of the shore shall pluck
The eagle of the sea !
Oh ! better that her shattered hulk
Should sink beneath the wave ;
Her thunders shook the mighty deep,
And there should be her grave :
Nail to the mast her holy flag,
Set every thread-bare sail,
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning of the gale !
FOLLY AND WIT.
Once Folly tried to cheat the world,
Assuming Wit’s demeanour,
And thought (poor fool) the darts she hurl'd
Than Wit's ourn darts were keener !
While those of Wit were used in sport,
And (lipp'd in Pleasure’s chalice,
Young Folly used another sort,
Whose only point was Malice.
A sly and secret aim she took—
But, ere one heart was wounded,
Upon herself, by some ill luck,
Each venom'd shaft rebounded,
So Wisdom ventured to express
This gentle k;.A tv. guide ner: —
When Wit takes aim with most success,
Good-nature stands beside her.
MIS € E L L A A Y.
Religious Pantomimes. On one ofi
the hills near Naples there is situate a
village, whose rustic habitations arc over-'
shaded by lofty pines, green laurels, and i
the fragrant oranges of the neighboring!
villas, in the arrangement of which Nature j
has been more consulted than art. There
tlie votaries ot ancient usages may enjoy
the satisfaction of imagining themselves in
the vfery bosom of the middle age—of
those blessed days into which some of the
musty brains of our times would fain re-j
conduct their restive contemporaries. At I
the festivity of Easter, an immense statue!
ot St. John the Baptist issues from the
parish church of Arenella, for such is the
the name of the village, borne on the
shoulders of four lusty peasants, who every
year dispute the honor of being crushed
beneath its ponderous load. The figure
moves along at a slow pace, and gives
one the idea of a person who lias lost
something. It turns restlessly about from
the right to the left: it goes prying into
every door, and finds its way into every
courtyard and down every street. It was
thus, perhaps, that, in the Eleusinian mys
teries, Ceres went about in search of her
daughter Proserpine who had disappeared
from her eyes, amid the yellow plains of
Sicily. After many fruitless researches,
it seems, if it be not very much mistaken,
to hear at a distance the festive hymns
that announce the resurrection of the Sa
viour. It would fain hasten in that di
rection, and make some advances to meet
him, but Mary Magdalen, who has follow
ed him at some short distance, cotne3 to
remind him of the promise lie has made
to the virgin not to monopolize the first
embraces of her son. St. John bows to
this request, and politely falls back, to
yield to the virgin the happiness of so
propitious a greeting. But the heart of a
mother has anticipated his coming. Be
hold she advances with majestic pace,
amid the loud congratulations of the peo
ple, who advise her to lay aside the black
mantle in which she is wrapt. In effect,
<rl the appearance of the Redeemer, nor
longer habited as a man of sorrows, but
resplendent in gold and jewels, the holya
virgin shows herself to the longing eyes
of the spectators, at the same moment
peopling the air with a number of birds
which escape from her bosom. The peo
ple the sacred group, which
re-enters the chorcb amid the ringing of
bells and the firing of small mortars.
But a still better pantomime, of the sa
cred kind, is that represented on holy
Thursday, at a small village in
the district of Aversa. A strapping bell
man, arrayed like the man of Nazareth,
crowned with thorns and bearing on his j
shoulders a ponderous cross, sets out to i
ascend the bill of Calvary. His escort
consists of twenty or thirty fellows dress
ed as Roman soldiers, with helmets and
cuirasses. From time to time the sacred
victim makes h feiut to fall under the
load of the cross, and the executioners that
J follow drive him along, like very Jews,
by blows of their lances, by kicks and
cuffs, applied in such good earnest that
the poor fellQw remains most soundly
pummelled, and his only consolation is
that such liifrsh treatment will be turned
to good account by being accepted, in the
other world, in expiation of his sins.—
Meanwhile the Virgin and the Magdalen,
bathed in tears,follow the Redeemer; who,
after traversing the principal paths about
the village, returns, accompanied by the
whole population, who are highly edified,
and melted to compassion at the affecting
PARTICULAR UtILITT OF DANCING.
Dancing contributes to improve the fig
ure. V hen habitually practised, it in
creases the strength, the suppleness and
the agility of the body. The shoulders
and arms then fall farther back : the feet
turn more outward, and the walk assumes
a particular character of firmness and
iightnesy. Dancing also tire de-!
[vortmeut easy and agreeable, and the mo-j
tions more free and graceful. Those in- j
deed, who learn to dance when very!
young, acquire an ease of motion that
can be gained in no other way; and if a i
habit of moving gracefully is then acquir-!
cd, it is never lost. It is owing to oth- j
er causes that professional dancers are !
seldom remarkable tor grace in any of,
the ordinary movements of life, and that j
in the performance of these they are gen- !
erally constrained, formal and tbmatic. j
As in its effects upon the muscels, dan-!
cing does not exercise any so much as
those of the lower part of tjie trunk, they i
generally exhibit an increase at the ex-i
pense of the upper part of the body and!
arms. This, however, is not unfavorable !
to female form ; and the best poof of this
is, that this exercise produces,in men who 1
make it their habitual practice, a great'
similarity in. S&tUJh « •• • * -- j
fessional dancers, the excess of this c::cr-j
cise causes the pelvis to appear large, hy’j
the prodigious dcvelcpemcnt of the sur-!
rounding muscels: the neck is thin; the'
arms, meagre; the shoulders seem nar- 1
row, and contrast strongly with the size
of the pelvis, and especially with the en
ormous prominence of the kips. Dan
cers present a formation totally different
from that of Smith.? and porters,in whom
the shoulders, chest and arms, are develo-1
ped at the expense of the inferior parts i
and lower limbs. For these reasons, I
young persons, who dance a good deal,
should always join with the dance some j
other exercise, as that ofthelndian seep-!
tres, having for its object almost exclu-l
sively the de’velopetnent of thc shoulders
and arms. It is further observed, that
bad effects on the form of the foot result
from overstretching its ligament ; that j
very few opera dancers can boast of a
good instep off the stage ; that when the
foot is placed on the ground, the arch of
the instep yields to the weight of the body '
and allows the concave part of the sole
to rest on the same plane with the toes,
that when, therefore, these persons walk,
they never rise on the toe, nor bend the
1 foot., and that, from the habit of turning
! the toes very much outwards, they ac-
I quire a very peculiar mode of walking.
! To bo useful to health, dancing must not
|he engaged in immediately after a meal,
nor be continued whole nights, nor -in
| places confined in proportion to the num
ber of dancers. In %‘se places, there
is frequently a groat quantity of dust,
which, joined to the animal exhalations,
and carried with the atmospheric air,con
tributes with the cause, the least
chill, to create irritation in the parts.
These become the more serious, because,
young people, especially the female sex,
are very careful to conceal the commence
ment of these affections, lest they inter
fere with their views of pleasure. lu a
i physiological point of view,dancing does
1 not differ from ordinary walking, except
ing that the extension and flexions are
more quickly repeated, and that the body
is every instant raised from, the ground,
and as if suspended in the air by the sud
den straightening of the articulation.
Thus, the commotions produced by this
kind of exercise ara-stronger- than- these
| that occur in walking, and their effects'
ion their organs contained in the trunk
! much more sensible. Some of the func
tions, consequently, are soon carried out!

A Tar of the Old ScnooL. One
morning, when his majesty’s ship Hesper-!
us lay at the cape, a seaman named Wolfe
applied to Lieutenant Strangways for leave
to go on sflore. “No, Wolfe,” said Strang-;
: ways, “I cannot allow you to go on shore..
I You know the last time yoy got leave you ;
jeanie on board drunk, and such conduct
j cannot be permitted.” “I promise you,
I sir,” said Wolfe, “I won’t get drunk.”—
j “What do you want to do on shore ?” in
quired Strangways. “I fight ”
To fight, repeated Strangways, a *pretty
errand truly. And with whom pray do
| you mean to fight ? With Black Sambo
the prize fighter, sir. lie challenged me
jto a match before I joined the. ship, and
j he.hhsbeen taunting me ever sfnee, in

jwe were to meet, sir, and if 1 do rjot at

J such arrangement, replied Strangways, j
I hut what you say is true—if you do not
attend, these Cape Town buillios may ini-!
pute it to cowardice. You promise me
you will not get drunk. 1 promise you, |
sir. Then you may go. Wolfe accord
ingly went on shore and after an absence
of an hour and a half he returned without
having tasted a drop of liquor. As soon
as lie got on deck he went to Strangways
and reported himself. I «nm come on
board sober, sir. .Weil, replied Strang
vvays, f am glad you have kept your word.
, Did you fight the match ? 1 did sir. Was
:it a long one? Fifty minutes, sir, by the

Did you punish your opponent severely ?
Why, sir, I beat him, and that's just say
ing enough. Right—you may retire, sir.
I hope, sir, you will have no objections to
let me go ashore again, said Wolfe, stili
lingering in the neighborhood of the
lieutenant. What, at present? Yes, sir.
M hy, what do you want ashore now?—
Get drunk, sir. replied Wolfe, vyitli the
gravest expression of countenance ; whilst
Strangways hurst out into an immoderate
fit of laughter. May I go, sir, continued
Wolfe, when lie thought the lieutenant
had had time to indulge his merriment.—
It is contrary to all rule, sir, said Strang
vvays, scarcely able to articulate fir laugh

so faithfully, l will permit you once to go.!

The Hottentots. An officer who
served in the interior, in the midst of the
Dutch African colonists, thus describes
the Hottentots at the period when the
English came into possession of the col
“At that time (1796—1502) the Hot
tentots were a miserable, abject race of
people, generally Jiving in the service of
the boors, who had so many of them that
they were thought of little value as ser
vants. and were treated more like brute
beasts than human beings.—-Indeed, the
colonists in those days scarcely consider
ed them human. They w«re mostly na

jack all’s skin for the men, and a wretch
ed sort of leathern apon for the women
! attached to a girdle of a raw hide, which
encircled their loins. Their food was
comnidW v the flesh of old ewes, or any
animal the hoor expected to die from age.
If he was short of that, he shot a few
quaggaS or other game for them. Their
wages were generally a few beads in the
year : or, when the boor returned from
a journey to Cape Town, a tinder, box and
a knife were considered a reward for faith
ful services. Perhaps a very obedient
man, and more than commonly Jndußtri-j
ous, got a heifer or a couple of ewe* in
a year. And if, by accident, any one of
IheJse poor wretches happened to possess
a few cattle, there was often some means
fallen Upon by the boor to get rid of him,
and thus the cattle became Jiis master’s: '
When a Hottentot offended a boor or a
booress, he was immediately tied up to a
wagoi£wkeel and flogged in a most bar
barous manner." f)r, if the master took'
a serious dislike to any of these unhappy
creatures, it was qo uncommon practice
to send out th% Hottentot on some preten

anecdote was a day or two since related
to us by a friend, which is worth the tell

months ago, and when off Florida, a bald
eagle which had been’ blown out to sea,
alighted, exhausted, on oneqof the lower
yards. He was brought down by our in
formant, and his wings were cropped, and
himself was nursed into vigor again. Ar-j

food, our eagle was trimmed aud painted
roosterlike, and taken, in a bag, to jbe pit.
At length the owner of a cock whicbdiad
beaten in twelve rounds, dared a contest
with anv one, for any stake. This was the
time. Our friend stepped up to him, and
told him that he had a Yankee cock, of
tiie native Green Mountain breed with
him, ifhe would like a game. ‘Yes,’ said |
the Spaniard, ‘I don't care wfiat kind of a
cock it is—lot him out !’ The b*t was
twenty-live dollars, and ottr Yankee cock
was let into tire ring. The opposite roaster,
flushed with his victories, crowed and spir

Long Hair.— We find in the News
and Courier, Portsmouth, N. H,, the fol*
lowing agreement entered into by the
Governor, Deputy Governor and Magis
trates, of New Hampshire, in 1G49, to
discountenance the sinful practice of
wearing lung hair. It is worth preserv
ing, as it goes to show the characters of
the great men of th»t generation.
, M Forasmuch,” says the instrument, “as
the wearing of long hair, after .the man
ner of ruflmns and barbarous Indians,has
begun to invade New-England, contrary
to the rule of God’s word, which says it
is a shame for a man to wear long hair,
as also to the commendable custom gener
ally of all the godly of our nation until
within-this few years: We, the magis
trates, who have subscribed this paper
(for the shewing of our own innocency
in this behalf) do declare and manifest
our dislike and detestation against the
wearing of such long hair, ns against a
thing uncivil and unmanly, whereby men
do deform themselves, and offend sober,
and modest men, and do corrupt good
rnauners. We do, therefore, earnestly
entreat all the elders of this jurisdiction
(as often as they shall see cause) tQ man
ifest their zeal against it in their public
administrations, and to take care that the
members of their respective churches be
not defiled therewith, that so, such as
shall prove obstinate, and will not reform
themselves may have God and man to
witness against them.”
