The introduction of machinery in place of the tedi ous and unhealthy process of casing type by hand, a desideratum bv the European founders, was by Amer ican ingenuity, a heavy expenditure of time and money on the part of our seinor partner, first successfully ac complished.

When the last rays, a tw light’s hour, Fai gently o’er me drooping flower — Wliea mists are ga'he ring on die hill, N )r sound is heard save mountain rdl; Then hear the echo wli.speriiig near, In softest accents to thine ear— -1 love Uifcc, dearest brother! When silence reigns through earth and sea— When mows the s'ur of Memory— Wnm Music wakes her thiiiiing tone, A id Au..4*!in .wiiius around the moan— Tneir accents hear, and oh rejoice! For, hark! th> re comes a w Ei-k no wn voice— s live thee, dearest brother!

Should Disappointment’s withering breath Consign thy brightest hopes to demh— Should Friend ir«'?t, in boylixid made, l.i aner years (irove faith betrayed; Then to tliy si.- er yet return, For oli, her heart will fondly burn To clasp her dearest brother N Should Sorrow* cloud thy coming years, And bathe thy prospects all in mars, Remember that the Rainbow’s hue Is btlgli! ’mid clouds aud sunshine too; Remember .hough -ve’re doomed to part, There lives one fond and faithful heart That loves her dearest brother! l love thee more and more. Faithful in Fortune’s darkest hour, Till then our loves were dreams of youth ! ’Twasthen I felt affection’s power, ’Twas then 1 proved thy bosom’s truth. Yes, when I see the gushing tear Bedim the eye that thrill’d before, I feel that thou indeed art dear, And love thee—love thee more and more. "Waked fi >m a “ofi Elysian trance To life’s severe reality! I find in thy more pensive glance A deeper, sweeter sympathy. Our griefs, as from one fountain spring. Now that our mutual joys are o’er — Yes, not a sorrow time may bring, But I shall love 'hee more and more. I’ll clasp thee j T et—-1 il clasp dice vet, Though passion’s burning hour is pist, Nor breathe one accent of re met That the bright-nomen's fled so fast; Nay, the more dark the sky may be, Aid ‘he more loud tbe storm may roar. The closer will I cling to thee, And love thee —love thee more and more. Thus far together we have come —* Nor be the h pe, ‘he prayer sunorest, That we mav reach our 'ong lost home Together, and united res'. But fire ddmv fate be first to and e, Wife Dos h stands eck’ning at the eoor, I’ll turn to thee, and faintly s;gh, I love thee—love thee more arid snore.

He <* a .ed a 1 back and a sUF neck, us a man to, wnen he lias his best on ; and every [time he spit, lie sprung ins bo ly forward, like a iack-kntfu, in order to .shoot clear of the ruf fles. S poire Jones’ pew is next but two to mine; and whe t I stand up to prayers and t .ke my | coat tail under my arm, and turn my back to jt e minister, I naturally look right Haight at Sally Jones. Now Sally has got a face noi to | txi griti tied at in a fog. Indeed, as regards beauty', some lolks think sue can pul! an even yoke with Fatty Bean. For my part, 1 think ti.e e is not much boot between tuern. Any io\v t ;cv r are so nigii mate icd that tney have jii ted and dispised each outer like rank poison, ever since they were school girls. Squire Jones iiad got niseveni g fire on, and set fiimnclf down to reading t c great b.hse, Kviien he heard a rap at his door. “ W Ik n. ! —Well, Joiin, ’now der do? Git out Pompy.” !‘’Pretty well Itnank ye.S<;uare and uow do yon do “ Why, so as be to.crawling—yeugiy, will ye nold ver yopi —*iaui up a chair and set down, John.” “ How do you do. Mrs. Jones ?” O, md dlin’, how’s your inarm ? Don't forget the mat, tuere, Mr. Beedic.” This put me in mind that I had been off soundings several times, in the long muddy lane; and my boots were in a sweet pickle. It was now old Captain .Tones’ tun, the grandfather. Being roused from a doze, by t e bustle and racket, he opened both h*s eyes at first with wonder and astonishment. At last ho began to halloo so oud that you m ght hear him a mile; for he takes it for grunted that every body is just exactly as deaf as he is? Mrs. Jones going close to his ear, screamed out, “it’s Johnny Beedle.” —“Ho—Johnny Roe'He. I remember, he was one summer at the siege of Boston.” —“ No no, father, bless vour heart, that was his grandfather, that’ ’>een dead and gone this twenty year. —“ Ho— but where does he co. ne f r oin Daovvn. taown. —“ Ho.—And what does he follow tor a livin’?” —And he did not stop asking ques tions, after this sort till the particulai of the Bee He family were published und proclaimed in Mrs. Jones* last screech. He then sunk b into nis doze again. T ie dog stretched himself before one andi ron, the cit squat down before the ot .ar. Si lence came ou bv degrees, I’kc a cidui snow storm till nothing was heard but cricket un der the hearth, keeping tune w th a yellow bir -fi forestlck.
