Dyspepsia ! horrid fiend, away ! Nor dog my stops from day to day : Where’er 1 go—wherovw fly, I meet that dim and sunken eye. That pallid and cadav’rous bite, '1 hose bloodless lips, so coldly blue, Thy tott’rißg gait and fah’ring breath, Proclaim thee messenger of death. Behold thy work—my languid tratue, Its vigoi wasted, blood grown tame, Afraid of what, it cannot tell, Tshsfd in thvdainoniao spell; i )ark shadows round, thou seein’st to fling; “My ears with hollow murmurs sing My head grows giddy---»yesight dim, My senses seem to reel and swim. At night 1 start from hideous dream; My pillow fly, with stifled scream; I dare not sleep --at early moru I hear the huntsman's echoing horn; M v bnrthen’d heart one instant pound* i 0 to noise, Ani fiieer the liounds—- AJ is! no more for me the chase! Myself pursued, I fly thy face. I cannot breathe the balmy air— It cheers me not, for thou art there; 1 am not gladden’d by the sun— Hit course is glorietis, mine is run. For me the flower* all vainlv bloom; They seem but things which strew the tomb. All it.iuga mat wo**. & The earth a blank-—the world undone. Is there no power, this brow to cool, And wash me in Siloam’s pool ! i’ethesda’s waters ! where ar* they ? The friendly hand to guide the way ? Remorseles* fiend ! relax thy hold; The demons w*re cast out of old, And 1 will ciiug to Jesus’ kaee; Uh! let him speak, and thou must flee. MUGATOR. "irTTi’js'A’x, Asra s>'ta* Frum the Southern Literary Messenger. BENEVOLENCE AND MODESTY. AS LSSAY. By the author oj “ es of a Bachelor” A modest, benevolent face may *• compared to a cupboard without a lock—a repository tor pec ula ion, invitingly open to evert gjrecfly cormo rant, and as little respected whea nfled of its con tents, as a swine trough, isto which the auiuial's snout is thrust at lirsf, b«t as the contents dimin ish tha whole of its body is inserted. A modest man should always be poor; if, for no other rea son, dlilv to disappoint the ravenous sharks who know not the virtue. A mild, *pou couutouaueo may also, be compered to u ripe poar, hanging over the highway, a mark for the slings of every passer, and exposed to ail the ill winds that blow. Fie upon it ! we are taught to cherish it, and find, too late, that we have nourished a viper. It might be a valuable virtue, if ail, or even a respectable por tion of mankind harbored it: so would there be no necessity of closing our doors at uigiit if *ll men were honest. These reflection* were engendered one line Sabbath mo min after setting out for church. It was a most lovely day in autumn, in spiring, even in the city: (here bad been on# or two frosts, that paled the lindens on the leaves be - the door, and uow the sun shone out clear, mild and invigorating. It was natural for a com plaisant smile to rest on my lips, a* 1 descended the snow white steps of my boarding house, and mined the throng of pedestrians, which increased iu numbers as we approached the vicinity of the time-honored edrfles. Tii*aged umu tottered a lon? the same walk he had traversed iu childhood; and the young and joyful wended the same road, whilst few of them, it may be, entertained many thoughts of death aud th* grave hard by. Near om* ot the fluted oi ise splenam grumte “ :il *rip!eot the Lord,” vfeated on the Sold st*s, with a Crutch in one lmnd and a rusty wool hat in tim other, was stationed a cadaverous old beggar. ?xow, thought I. will be practised the holy chari ty, on the threshold of tbc holy house, where the holy precept is taught. As the crowd swept in I found myself standing before the mendicant. “Well, my good man,” said 1, “you have doubt less reaped a full harvest, this delightful morn ing.” “Behold,” said he, “my treasure.” I looked in and (bund only some half dozen coppers.— “But yrru,” continued he, holding up the lut. “have the right kind es face, and the moment [ saw you 1 knew tny little store would be increas ed.” 1 arn sure it was a natural impulse, and not his practised flattery, that induced me to contri bute, for my pocket was already delivered of its little mite, set apart for the church, before he wns half done speaking “Heaven bless your generous countenance !” continued the old man, looking me steadily in the eye, “it will be a treasure for you in heaven, but on earth you will find ft a curse, and 1 would ad vise you to dispense with it as quick as possible.” Struck with the singularity of his remark, I was rivetted to the spot in astouis’nment. “Why should you form this conclusion and tender sach advice, my friend?” I inquired. “Were this a fittiug place I would tell you; and if you really wish to hear me, you can do so by accompanying me to one ofuiy haunts. 1 will soon be compelled to leave here.” “1 will go with you,” said I, “and substitute your lessons for the eermoo. But what will compel you to leave here Just then my remarks were abruptly broken off by the intrusion of a red faced gentleman, who, with an air of uncommon im portance, placed his foot under the mendicant, and forced him to Vise. “Stop! yon impudent scoundrel!” said I, iu- Vol. I.—No. ST terferiug, on recognizing the intruder to be the sexton. ‘‘Never mind.” said the beggar, laughing, “1 am willing to exchange this stand for any other hn far as profit is concerned.” And when the old fellow hobbled oil, I followed him. “Now,” said my companion, when we were en sconced under an awning on the wharf, where an old woman, whom he informed me was deaf aud dumb, kept cakes and apples for sale, sat dozing by, “l wiil tell you why you should dispense with your geneious and modest face. Genuine mod esty comprehends more thau mere iuoH'ensivc dis li(j6oc6 jit me radiant uc jttus vCnu ur uamic*? alchemy, formed of all the most valuable particles of the soul, and consequently only fit for liea veu.” “My dear sir,” said f, “you put it all to the blush! You tell me to niy lice that 1 possess this raid compound.” “I do say it,” lie replied, “and instead of a grateful blush, a tear of iegret would be more appropriate, unless you retire from the world at.d live a hermit’s life. You would then be bevnnd the influences of the vices of the world, and, in stead of having your virtues preyed upon by the Vicious, you might eojoy the treasure which God has endowed you with in peace. Vice and virtue are antagonist qualities, aud as there is ten fold more of the former on the earth, so when they come in contact the victory is to numbers : there fore it Is wisdom to keep them asunder, or, if they muxt rniugle, it is prudence to dispense with the sembl*Hc«ofthe latter, »s a soldier does tlm badge of his Gountry when surrounded by the enemv.” “This is most extraordinary !” I exclaimed. n rth tlv n it? o tea r\ f »!■■•♦ I* r-E- A pani«a ; “and, if you will give me your attention, 1 will brefly relate some of the instances of mv lit*.” Unhesitatingly assenting, and signifying gi#at curiosity to know his history, he threw aside his crutch, aud leaning back against a keg on which I was desired to sit, he thus began : “i was the only child of humble parents, who lived by keeping a small flower garden near the city. I wassent to school when very young, and was distinguished by my learning and bash fulness- At the aga of 13 I was left an orphan—-both of inv parents dyiag the-same day ; being swept otf by an epidemic. I was now' the inheritor of a few hundred dollars, aud might have continued ruy father’s business successfully, had it not been lor iny constitutional infirmity, modesty, which ever prevented me from bustliug with my fellow men aud pushing my fortune. I hired myself to a neighboring gardener, and for several years led a contented life : but the fairest flower, the one with w hich 1 was most delighted, was the gentle Rosa, my employer’s daughter. Long 1 loved her ; und lha passion was mutual. She delighted to dis tant iu my presence on the various significations of the plants—and, at parting, sbe would pin on nay breast the one which was the badge of love and constancy. Yet the curse of timidity hung over me ! When the time arrived tor me to act, when it became necessary for tnc to declare my love iu words and solicit her hand, my tongue refused its oflioe, and I construed her silence and coyness fit to a rejection ; and without seeking another in terview, 1 fled to the city. Here, amongst stran gers, whom 1 had not confidence to ask lor em ployment, nor firmness to deny my purse to anv, lxvas soou loft destitute. When on the borders of despair, and wishiug that some tiiendly dispensa tion of Providence would take me from aiaong't the living, a war was declared, nnd 1 gladly shoul dered a musket in the defence of my country, In the first conflict, urged more by a reckless de sire ol death, than impelled by a sengi of duty, it was my fortune to distinguish myself, and re ceive the particular commendations of mv officer. Bu; in the next action I was made a cripple for life, toll into the hands of the enemy, aud wheu 1 awoke from a long delirium 1 found myself in a hospital iu England. They had evidently taken me for one cf their own party, of the same name, who, 1 supposed had perished in the battle. 1 toki them who and what I was, and soon fount! iuys*lf abandoned, iu a strange land, without mo ney, aud unable to work fora living. For years 1 puttied the occupation of a beggar. hom Jing up mv savings to return to my native lapd. I now thought of tny faint-heartedness, and felt certain that Rosa would gladly have been mine, had I on ly pressed my suit! Aye, the bitterest sting of modosty is the conviction of calmer moments, that it has been hopelessly ill-timed, and could so eas ily and profitatbly have been dispensed with ! 1 called several times on Out minister, but paused at the threshhold, and never Lad the heart to see him, even when he had granted an audience. At length a humane captain gave me a passage in the steerage, and when 1 again set foot ou this wharf. 1 hastened to Rosa’s garden, determined to try iny foitune once more, even under more unfavorable circumstances than formerly. 1 saw her from a thicket of shrubbery, culling flowers as usual, but several prattling children were round her, calliug lo ‘mama!’ I turned and fled away. “I learned that the wounded in the late war were entitled to pensions, and 1 repaired to the war office to assert my claims. The .functionary looked at the list, stared me iu the face, and thrust me out, saying 1 had been paid only the week be fore. In vain were my protestations to the con trary. I was shown my name (it was that of the Englishman!) ou the pension list, and was assur ed that I had regularly received my pay lor years ! Again I fled back to this city and pursued the mendicant’s occupation. Another had usurped my name aud taken my pay, and 1 was a bashful outcast—brow beaten out of iny ideutily, a victim : of MODESTY. “This, young man, is n portion of iny history. ! My profession has made me a good judge of la-, ! ces, and 1 advise you to throw aside youi benevo lent modesty as soou as possible. To-day I siu i gledyou out from hundreds, and rely upou it, your | want ol assurance may prove the gicatcM curso of ! your life. What have you done today ? Y our ' yielding disjiosition has caused you to be guilty ; of profanity and sacrilege : with the most lauda- I ble purpose you left borne; but instead of listen
