From the Philadelphia Visiter.
O! Lady, buy those budding flowers,
For 1 aui sad and wet and weary;
I gathered them ere break of day.
When all was lonely still and dreary ;
And long I’ve sought to sell them here,
To purchase clothes and food and dwelling
For valor’s wretched or pan girls—
i’oor me and my young sister Ellen.
Ah, those who tread life's thornless way,
In fortune’s golden sunshine basking.
May deem my wants require no aid,
Because my lips are mute unasking.
They have no heart for woes like mine,
Each word, each look, repelling;
Yet once a crowd of flatterers fawned,
And fortune smiled on me and Eiien.
O, buy my flowers fair and fresh
As mine and morning’s tears could keep
Tomorrow’s sun shall find them dead,
And I shall scarcely live to weep them.
A’et this sweet bud, if nursed with care,
Soon into fullness would be swelling;
And nurtured by some generous hand,
So might my little sister Ellen.
She’s sleeping in a hollow tree—
Her only home—its leaves her bedding,
And I've no food to carry there.
To soothe the tears she will he shedding.
O, that those mourner’s tears which fall,
That bell which heavily is knelling,
And that deep grave were meant for me
And my poor little sister Ellen.
When wo in silence are laid down
in life's la 4, f.\irie;.s, blessed sleeping,
No tears will fail upon our grave,
Save those o! pity nig 11 eaven son u weeping.
Unknown we’ve lived, unknown must die—
No tongue the mournful tale lie telling
Os two young broken-hearted girls—
Boor Alary and her sister Lilcu.
No one has bought of me touav,
Ail l ui Bit is now the tow n o ers . filing;
And I, like these poor drooping flowers,
Unnoticed and unwept am finUm;.
M« soul is stru rglin; to he free,
It loathes its wretched earthly dwelling,
31 y limbs refuse to bear their load—

BURIAL OF THE SUB-TREASURY BILL.
Letter from a Loco Vaco m M ash< ngton to his poli
“Not a drum was heard, nor a funeral note,
“As over the ramparts we hurried. ’
Not a word was said, riot a speech was made
As the Bill thro’ the House was hurried;
No kindlv Conservative came to our aid,
As our favorite measure wo buried.
The question was taVu in silence and tears,
Or only disturbed by our sohhiiitr,
While terrible doubts and awful fears
in the hearts o! the faithful v.eic tj.oboing.
No useless amendment encumbered the Bill,
No previous quest ton upon it,
’Twns laid on the table deserted and still,
Precisely as't came from the Senate.
Sadly we counted the “nays” to the last,
And the absent ones strove to remember;
We said not a word of elections just passed;
But we bitterly thought of November.*
We said not a word in defence of it, there,
We were not (to tell the truth,) able;
But we rose from our scats in silent despair,
And left it alone on tlie table.

Wed din a Presents.— ln the Swedish province
of Dalecarlia, it is customary for young females
on their wedding day to present each of the guest
with a pair of stockings or gloves of their own
knitting. This custom is held so sacred, that wed

“Bless me! who is moving away?” asked 31rs.
Specie-ton, who was sitting at the w indow of a
fashionable boarding-house in Brodway. The
hulies ran to the window, and behold a cut be
fore the door, on which they were [lacking all the
etcetras of a boarding family. Just then tie lady
of the house came in, and with a heavy sigh
threw hereself upon the sofa.
“Whose baggage is that, 31rs. Benton ?” asked

“I knew it,” said young Mrs. Marsden; “but
did not care to mention it.”
“This is the fourth family who have thus sud
denly left me, and really' I do not know vvliat is to
become of me. My landlord has raised my rent
to seven thousand dollars, and now these hard
times have put an end to all travilling, and broken
up my house. 1 wish the government was

Mr. Specieton, gravely, “especially with oue who

••lie! fi.-!” laughed a thin drrk over-dressed

upon cotton-sccd, and lie used often to sa f alter

if they had not all taken it into their beaus most
unaccountably to die—he, lie!’’
Mr. Specieton did not deign an answer except
* \ skrug'jiug his shoulders and muttering some
thing about stale whig jokes.
• O , rnamn a ’ said .Matilda Spec'e'on returning
*rom the window, “do give me ten shillings. I
saw such a love of a scarf at Stewart’s, which he
sold for three dollar-last winter, but which he now

“Ten shillings,” said 3lrs. Benton. “Ido not
Know where you are to get that iroin, I have not
seen so much specie in a month.”
“it is vm v scarce,” said Mrs. Specieton, “i have
not had much lately,”
“H-w vexatious,” said her daughter, “where
fins a’l the money gone—i as it sunk into the sea?
“No, dear,”said 31rs. (’otton the Southern lady;
“tin* President wants it all for l:i; own private spen
din-r. What cares he. or the officers of the gov
ernment whether the merchants-the prop, tiic
stay—nay, the very supporters oi tin: government,
prosper or arc involved in ut; a - ruin. 1 hey are
callous to the sufferings and distress ot all—save
when it touches their oiva intent's, and th.cn they
discover there is a pressure—nut none that ‘any
honest man should fear.’ The tyrant is seated on
his throne, surrounded bv his sat- lites eager to
do his bidding ; and thus lie reclines on liis bed
of down, regardless ot the misery a.id min ot the
cmmtry’of his birth. Were but women allowed
a voice in the legislative halls, 1 war. ant u>e affans
would then be changed.”
-Pshaw, child,” said Mr. Specieton, “there is
plentv of specie and yellow gold. Ho no* believe
the story the whigs'tell—here is a handful: but
it seems to me you have a variety ot^s curl's, and
'on must not be so extravagant, child.
' “Hcigho!” sighed Mrs. Benton, “I do not care
who makes the money pressure—government or
whig?, but 1 do hate to see my boarders ruined—
and my house empty.” And with another heavy
sigh she left the room.
“What a silly woman that is,” said ..Ir. Specie
ton, after she had left the room, “with her sighs
and groans and money-pressure. I tell you it is
all a mistake—wait in patience. I have no idea
but that all will go oil right—l have no tears.”
“It is awful times,” said Mrs. Cotton. “ All my
acquaintances are selling off. ruined—and disap
pearing from society. -I fancy they are not so de
lighted with the experiment you are so fond n. talk

Such ignorance and impertinence, as Mr. fcpe

in a dignified manner. “It is an absurdity to im-

U “Aye,” said 3lrs. Cotton, rising to leave tlie
room, “you may be glad it is no worse. You will

“How 1 hate that whig woman,” said 3lr. tfjie
cieton. “Like all her party she is ever prophe

“Come, come! leave politics, and take a stroll
on the Battery,*’ said his wife.
The ladies retired to equip themselves, and
joined bv Wilhelm Kozeustion, to whom 31atilda
was betrothed, they sallied out for a walk.
Seated at the window of a large and elegantly
furnished apartment, immediately over the draw
iiiiig-ioom, were three persons: 31r. and 31rs.
alaisdcu, a young couple who had been married
only one month, and Mrs. Granger, a lady who
boarded in the same house.
“Dear me, what a show our friends the Specie
tons make,” said 31rs. Granger, looking after them.
“Their gay dresses attract every eye. Pink satin
mantelets, trimmed with broad black lace—bon
nets all satin and blonde —for my part, I could not
bear tube dressed out so splendidly when all the
city is plunged in such gloom and distress.”
“That lias often struck me,” said Mr. Marsden,
rousing from the gloomy reverie in which he had
been plunged, “when 1 have been ail day in the
business part of of the city, surrounded by men
wan with anxiety or haggard w ith despair, and see
the ladies in Broadway decked out like butterflies,
sailing along as if in mockery of the woes ot their
fathers and husbands, it has struck me as some
thing so utterly shocking and unfeeling that 1
have turned away in disgust.”
“It is not so much the case now as formerly,”
observed 3lrs. Granger, “Broadway and the shops
are not by any means as thronged as usual, and it
will diminish more.”
“Besides those who have dresses roust wear
them,” said Mrs. Marsden, “and they should not
give up all exercise.”
“No, Caroline; hut I would have them do as you
have done,” he replied, gazing admiringly upon
his voting bride. “Do you know, Mrs. Granger,
the dear creature has laid aside all her rich wed
dingdresses, and wears only cajico in the house,
arid plain dark silk tochuri l h---and even her bridal
hat of satin and blonde, has given place to straw
and plain green ribbon.”
“Then that is the reason we never see you in
any of tlioss pretty dresses you wore when you
fast came here! a just compliment to the times,
which we all might follow.”
31 rs. Marsden blushing and smiling fondly upon
her husband said. “Pray do not praise me Alfred ;
it was from a selfish motive, I assure you; for when I
saw my husband and friends w ere so much dis
tressed, and there was so much suffering around
me, I did not feel comfortable in gay dresses.”
“Vou are a noble-minded woman,” said 3lrs.
Granger, as she arose to depart, “and it all had
acted as you have done, the sinful luxury ot this
city would soon cease, and our husbands Le re
lieved from a load of care.”
When Mrs. Marsden n tuned to her seat after
seeing 3lrs. Granger to th” door, she found her
husband leaning his head upon bis hand in the
same desponding rtitude which had been so com
mon with hiirrof late. “Now, Alfred, dearest,
you must not look so wretched,” she said ca
ressingly ; did you not promise me you would try
to look more cheerful.”
“Caroline, 1 have tried—l have struggled against
this depression, but it is in vain, ii you know
what an effort it is to strive to appear composed,
when the besom is torn with contending emo
tions, you will not ask it. Its costs me too much.”
“Well, dear, be dull then if you choose, but
toll me what it is that makes you so gloomy and
despairing. You have not tailed, and may yet
weather the storm.”
••No, my wife—do not deceive yourself; every
day I am more convinced ot the appalling cer
tainty that the next may sec me a bankrupt, and
all my friends involved ill my rum.”
“Gertainly there is n thing pleasant in such an
expectation. Still it becomes us all in times of
great emergency,; l l arouse oursoivss t. om despond
encypmd sharpen all our faculties to keep above the
current, or to seize upon new resources tor safety.
If you are bankrupt, it will not be from any mis
management ot yours—and no one will blame
' “But to reduce my wife to beggary—you who
have been brought up to every comfort—no I can
not bear it.” And rising up, he paced tlie duoi in
the greatest agitation.
“Ah, yes, I see I am a burden upon you Allied,
said his wife, “if you were not married you would
feel it less. When you married me I was an
heiress, and vou could rely in ease of reverse upon
the assistance of my father—he is now a bankrupt
and cannot serve. ' I have also plunged you into
more expense by taking this costly suit of apart
ments—but l will give them up-to-morrow will
see us in cheaper lodgings, and there will he one
thing less to reproach myself with.”
“Give up these beautiful rooms winch all your
friends have admired so much—dearest Caroline,
I cannot permit it.”
“(H, 1 am the master here, and am dertermmed
I will be no more a burden upon you.”
“Yo„ a burden?” he exclaimed, seating him
self by her side and pressing her to him “A ou are
mv only comfort, Caroline. When in my office,
barrassed by a thousand unpleasant things, 1 am
rea.lv to despair, and wish 1 could lay me down
and die ; but when I return to your cheering and
sympathising bosom, 1 forget all mv distress.--
Somctimes, do you know, 1 think it it w ere not
t„." vou,' lie added, gasping for breath and looking
wildly upon he., “I -hould—ycs,Caroline, I know
1 should destroy myself!” , ,
“Destrov vourself!” she repeated slowly, gazing
fixedly into her husband’s agitated face, “And
do 1 hear this from the lugh-souled, pious Allied
Marsden. Do not let me hear those words again.
Oh do not lead me to think, I have been deceived
in mv husband, and that his spirit, once so noble
awl exalted, has uot been able to bear np against
the ills of life!”

Alfred shook liis head and and turned gloomily
away from her.
“What!” she said, “can it be possi? ’e the
of mere s worldly goods, of luxuries, when health
and strength, and innocence, arc left, can thus
break down ail high resolves, all religious princi
ples, and throw you into the ranks of the w eak, the
imbecile, whose pigmy soui i» unable to withstand
the shocks of fate. Have you forgotten, my hus
band, there is another and a happier world to the
virtuous,” she continued, lifting her fine eyes
streaming w ith tears to heaven ; “another home
where a kind and pitying father watches his chil
dren as they travel their weary and thorny road,
hoping iliey will but prove true to him and to
themselves, that he may joyfully welcome them to
that better land he lias’in reserve for them. “In
my father’s house there are many mansions.’ • b,
Alfred! rise, 1 conjure you, superior to these
trials, and we shall inhabit them together w hen
earth and all its troubles shall have passed away ?*
Tears burst from the eyes ot young Alarsden,
and the stern and despairing feelings w hich had
seized upon his heart and crushed all its best re
solves, vanished from liis breast, and throwing his
arms around her, he called her his guardian spirit,
and blessed the hour lie had taken to his heart so
firm a counsellor and tender guide.
About a week after this, some of the remaining
boarders of 3lrs. Benton were seated in the draw
ning-room aw aiting dinner. Tlie last to enter was
Mr. Granger, who threw himself upon a sofa over
come with fatigue.
“Any thing new in Wall St. 1” asked Mr. Nor
ton, an elderly gentleman, not in business, who.
had been out all day.
“Matters look worse—stocks are falling—bad
news from England.”
“Any new caste, as we used to say in Cholera
times; any new failures?”
“Good God, yes, a dozen. I remember the
time when oue failure set all Wall street in a tor
ment, and now we have 'twenty-five a-day. r l he*

“He! he!’ laughed Mrs. Cotton. “I wonder
if he finds a pressure real now.”

“she never denied hersell any tiling, and 1 fon< V

“She was an awfully extravagant woman—and

cushions, upon which the had been lulling all the
morning; “that 1 have seen licr lounge on the
sofa all the day, she has dresses enough to last
her two years, and.so costly, she might support
herself by the sale of them. Her pocket hand
kerchiefs cost twenty-live dollars a piece.
“Any woman who gives so much money fora

Granger, “1 declare it makes me shud *i when 1
