Italy was crowded with German pilgrims.’ — Walpole. A sound went upward upon startled ears, Like music of some mighty instrument, Os that commanding and great harmony That takes the spirit captive. From the sky A voice broke o’er the mountain and the vale, And rushing river with its castled crag, Telling, as through a prophet’s stirring trump, That the Mid Sea, which lash’d the Holy Shore, Should to its grave go back—and a great path Open for chariots o’er its vanish’d tides— The jewels of the ocean, from thtir caves, Flash to a wond’ring world—and the vast deep Bare its unnutnber’d mysteries to man ! A nation woke. Along the shadowy Rhine, As though another ‘ star’ upon the air, With its unmaster’d glory, had come forth, Men startled as from slumber—and away They gather’d to the Capitol—and Rome Grew dark with pilgrims—and all Italy Was crowded with believers—and they stood, Pressing the classic shores—with rounding eyes, Gazing upon the quivering expanse, V\ ilh its unalter’d blue—and the dull dirge Os its unshrinking waters. Still they gaz’d With that sad fixedness of spirits bow’d, Which rest hearts only token. Stiii away To the lost land—the sainted sepulchre— They gaz’d with eyes though tearless, yet how full ! They gaz’d—but the sea fell not—not a wave •Sunk from its royalty—but on. and far, Deep, calling unto deep, it swung and swept, Unrein’d, from shore to shore ! Alas ! for man ! How strong his fai’h—bow weak Ins fantasies ; What riddle, with his * brief authority,’ And his few days, he reads to all the earth ! He would not trust his spirit for the sky, To promises of Him who plan’d the stars, And gave the heavens their glory. Not to Him Would he give up his life, who for him died, And pass’d within the veil. He asks not first That lighting through the Valley of the Dead, Without which hope is darkness ! Yet behold! A pilgrim from the spectre land, he leans Upon the broken shafts of a past world, As waiting for the earth with that great noise To pass away, which prophets sung of old ; Believing that the blue deep shall roll back Into its vasty caverns—and a path Open from Italy to Palestine, O’er which the pilgrim army shall tread forth, With staff and cowl, as o’er the torrid plain, Up to the portals of Jerusalem! Ah ! man—thy pilgrimage must be to shores, Where life, hencefotih, must thrive with memory, And thy years cloud them with forgetfulneess ! Where thy dim dreams must lie down with the faith That can bid oceans to a sepulchre, And stay the elements Back to thy home ! And with God’s volume, and its worship there, Yet find a Calvary among its hills ! From the New Yorker. THE EARLY” LOST. I stole to the grave of one 1 had lov’d in my happier years, And tarried till each idle gazer was gone, Then I water’d her turf with my tears : For she was the beauteous ark In which I had ventur’d my all— Too rude blew the winds for the summer-built bark, My hopes were all quench’d in her pall. I knelt ’neath the funeral tree, That fitfully stream’d in the wind, Raving aloud, all unheeded by me— The body felt not, but the mind ; For I thought on those rosy-wing’d days When we roam’d in the vale of our youth ; Where citron groves shaded her form from the rays Os the life-teeming sun of the South. I thought on her genius and worth ; I thought on her white swelling btow, Round which the base worms of the earth Were revelling greedily now : A shroud and cold worms for the clay, But a heavenly crown for the soul; And a bower which can never decay, Whore the waters cf melody roll. Place no stone o’er the bed of her rest, For she had small part with the world ; Though the cold clay now presses Iter breast, Her spirit’s young wings are unfurl’d : Oh ! she was a fair bird of spring, Les, behind in a bleak, wintry clime, Where cold breezes faded the hue of its wing, Once so bright in the soft vernal time. Oh! she was a bright Eden flower, Severed far from its nurturing earth, Which sprang into life in a warm April shower, But withered away from its birth : The bird to anew spring hath fled ; The flower in anew Eden smiles, Whose vales are ne’er water’d with tears for the dead, Where the weary worn rest from their toils. A dirge, when nv heart is in wo, My frail harp will breathe o’er her tomb ; For though dark be my pathway below, Her memory cart silver its gloom. Alas ! for the love that lies buried In the wreck-covc-r’d tide of the past ! Alas for time’s flood, which hath hurried My soul on its voyage so fast! W. F. MEETING AND PARTING. A GLEE COMPOSED FOK THE ADMIRED AIR, ‘ SPARKLING AND BRIGHT.’ Sparkling and bright With silver light Are the stars in the blue sky gleaming, And the moon’s pale ray On her azure way Is soft as an infant’s dreaming. Then meet to-night In the mellow light The moon and stars are flinging, And light be our feet As the arrow so fleet From the bow of the hunter ringing. Then meet to-uight, &c. While thus we sing, With rapid wing Old Time on bis flight is speeding ; And soon we must part, Though careless of heart— We wist not the moments’ receding. Then part to-night With hopes as bright As the moonbeams round us playing ; And oft as we meet Each other to greet, May jov wing the moments unstaying ! We part to-night, &c. ANTONIO ALLEGRI DA CORREGGIO. ‘ Here conies Antonio, with his new pic ture,’ said Maddelena to her father Nicolo ; ‘ do, clear father speak kindly P> him.’ ‘ Nay, daughter,’ replied Ntcolo, ‘ thou canst not expect me to be as dove-like as thy self. I will speak to him as one man may speak to another. It would have been well for thee, had I not yielded to thy foolish fancy in the first place. Hadst thou married Pietro, thou wouldst have taken thy proper siation in the world, and been mistress of one of the finest Inns in Correggio. I should not see thee, as I now do, wanting the necessaries of life.’ ‘Father,’ said Maddelena, ‘ thou art mis taken ; I want nothing. lam the happiest being in the world.’ ‘ Then why dost, thou weep?’ said Nicolo, for the tears of the young wife were falling like a morning shower. ‘Look '.’said she, ‘ Antonio is just coming up the ltiii—see how feeble he walks—he can j scarcely carry his picture—ah, he stops to re-s t —do you see how pale he is ?’ ‘ Y r es, yes, ;he had better taken my advice, and worked at my trade; I offered to give him a years instruction for no remunera tion but his services; but nothing would do— he must paint pictures, that are good for no thing in the world. Now jars and pipkins and milk-pans and flower-pots are good for something, and will always bring money.’ ‘ Yes, father, but Antonio’s work will bring him fame —glory.’ ‘Fame, glory! nonsense! canst thou live on these commodities?’ ‘ We want but very little to live upon : in deed. father, if Antonio were well, I should not have a wish ungratified. He is so kind, so gent'e. so fond of our little Giovanni, and , of the infant. ‘ Oh, there are few so blest as l I ant!’ To have such a husband, father— one whose genius will lead him to immortali ty !’ ‘lt is in a fair way of leading thee to im mortality, mv poor child,’said Nicolo, with feeling. ‘ Thou art almost as pale as he.. I little thought, when I let thee out of my fold, that thou wouldst find no other shepherd.’ ‘ Sav what you please tonic,’said Maddel ena, ‘you are mv father, my dent father, and I can bear it all: hot I beseech you, do not say such things to jny poor Antonio ; they make him miserable—they break his heart.’ ‘ I wish you had married Pietro,’ reiterated Nicolo, ‘ he has a slout heart.’ ‘ Rather sa v, you wish I was in my grave ; for I would sooner be there, than married to him. No, no, you do not wish such miserv for your poor child. Look, father ! Antonio is up again, and coming—ah, when you see his picture, I am sure you will say to him, ‘ You were right, Antoaio, to pursue painting —it will lead you to immortality.’ Antonio slowly ascet.ded the hill, and Mad delena met him. ‘ Let me look at it,’ said she, and he turned tl? piettre towardsher. ‘How beautiful!’ ex-la i tel; ‘jthey are just such faces as we shall see in heaven.’ When they entered the house, the painter modestly set down the picture with its face to the wall. ‘ A warm day, Antonio,’ said Nicolo; ‘thou shale have a cup of good old wine to refresh ihpe.’ * ‘ Rather a cup of milk,’ replied Antonio, ‘ldo not love your heating draughts; they only add to t.he heat here,’ and lie laid his hand upon his breast. ‘My dear husband,’ said Maddelena, sooth ingly, ‘ thou hast painted too closely for these few days past; but it is for you, father, An tonio has been engaged. He said lie would paint a picture for your room, and lie has brought it.’ ‘lt is but a little thing,’said Antonio, rising, ‘ but I will show it you.’ ‘ Wait a moment,’ exclaimed Maddelena, ‘I hear our little Giovanni, and baby too is awake ;’ and going out, she returned in a few moments with the child in her arms, seated herself near the window, witli Giovanni lean ing upon her lap, and said, ‘ Come, Antonio, lam ready.’ Slowly, and with trepidation the painter displayed the picture. It was a Madonna with the infant in her arms, and John near her—Maria and Iter children —bearing a ve ry striking resemblance to the living group before them. Nicolo gazed fixedly upon it; his stern fea tures relaxed ; he attempted to speak, and burst into tears. ‘ My daughter!’ lie at length exclaimed, ‘my little Giovanni! just as they look now !’ and suddenly turning to Antonio, he seized his hand. ‘Yes,’ continued he, ‘thou wert right to pursue painting—it will lead you to immortality .’ ‘Did I not say so?’ said the delighted wife, and her arms were in a moment around her father’s neck. ‘ Good, kind Antonio,’ said Nicolo, ‘ I will not find fault with Maddelena that she'did not choose Pietro—no, no, lie cannot paint such a picture as this —he ;s a very good tapster, and keeps good wines, and a good Inn ; but thou hast chosen well, my daugh ter.’ It was a happy day for Antonio and his wile. Nicolo who esteemed the value of the picture, by the perfect resemblance the mo ther and children bore to the beings he loved best, and by his devotional impressions, re peatedly exclaimed, ‘ Pietro never could have painted such a picture as that.’ Mr. Willis in one of his letters to the New York Mirror, thus delicately, and poetically, alludes to the sale of the Sigourney estate : ‘ Talking of home, 1 wonder whether it is true that adverse fortunes have thrown Mr. Sigourney’s beautiful home into the market. It is offered for sale, and the Newspapers say as much. If so, it is piiy indeed. 1 was there once, and to leave so delicious a spot must, 1 think, breed a headache. In general, unless’ tiie reverse is extreme, compassion is thrown away on those who leave a large house to be comfortable in a small one —but she is a poet ess, and a most true and sweet one, and lias a property in that house and in ali its trees and flowers, which can neither be bought nor sold. It is robbing to sell it for its apparent value. You can understand, for ‘your spir it is touched to these fine issues,’ how a tree that the eye of genius has rested on while the mind was at work among its bright fan cies, becomes the cradle and home of these fancies. The brain seems driven out of its workshop if you cut it down. So with walks. So with streams. So with the modifications of natural beauty seen'tlience habitually— sunrise, sunset, moonlight. In peculiar pla ces, these daily glories take peculiar effects, and in that guise genius becomes accustomed to recognise and love them most. Who can buy this at Auction? Who can weave this golden mesh in another tree —give the san e voices to another stream —the same sunset to other hills ? This fair property, invisible as it'is, is acquired slowly. Habit, long associ ation, the connexion with many precious thoughts, (the more precious the farther be tween) make it precious. To sell such a | spot lor its wood and brick, is to value Tom* Moore for what tie will weigh—Daniel Web ster for his superfices. Then there will lie a | time (1 trust it is far off) when the property will treble even in saleable- value. The bee i and the poet must be killed before their honev j is tasted. For how much more would Ab-S botsfbrd sett now- than in the life-time of j Scott ? For what could you buy Fernev— Burn’s cottage— house at Sirat- 1 ford? I have not the honor of a personal j acquaintance with Mrs. Sigourney, and can-: not judge with what philosophy she may Bus tain this reverse. But bear it weilor if', there can be no doubt it falis heavily; and it is one of those instances, I think, where public feel-1 ing should he called oh to interpose. But in what shape? I have always admired the’ generosity and readiness with which actors! play for the benefit'of a decayed brother of j the Stock. Let American authors contribute : to make up a volume, and let the people off Hartford, who live in the light of this bright; spirit, head the subscription with ten thou-1 sand copies.

Most young men consider it a great mis fortune to be poor, or not have capital enough to establish themselves at their outset iu life in a good business. This is a mistaken no tion. So lar from poverty being a misfor tune to him, if we may judge from what we every da-y behold, it is really a blessing.— The chance is more than ten to one in favor of the success of such a young man over one who starts with plenty of money. Let any one look back twenty years, and see who commenced business at that time with abun dance of means, and trace them down to the present day. How many of these can now boast of wealth and standing? On the con trary how many have become poor, lost their places in society, and are passed by their once young companions, with a look which plainly says, 1 know you not. In this country the wheel of fortune is con stantly turning, and he who is at zenith this year, may be at nadir next, and excite no surprise. It is seldom that the fourth, or even the third generation, enjoys property and station, which was won by the industry ot the first. i'bis eoastont olmn-'u is the natural result of causes in continual opera tion. A man starts in life poor, but indus trious and honest. He resolves to acquire property, and at the same time sustain a character that shall command respect. By dint of long perseverance in business, he at tains a high character for integrity and fair dealing, and becomes wealthy. Ilis sons succeed him, perhaps maintain the character of their lather, and add to the wealth he left them, because they were educated to busi ness, and know how the property they enjoy was acquired. But their sons grow up, and from infancy find themselves in the lap of luxury, and rocked in the cradle of ease, their minds are never turned on business : that, they consider beneath them. They scorn labor, run the rounds of folly, marry light-headed, fashionable ladies, who have as sovereign a contempt for labor and the use ful arts as themselves, dash away a lew years in their carriages, lose their parents, divide their property, attempt to carry on business—are incapable of managing it— fail, struggle to keep up appearances, and their places in fashionable life—are obliged to retire, are wretched and miserable at home, and get through the world as they can, carrying the appearance of shabby gentlemen,-and being looked at askance by their Conner companions. Their children are more miserable even than themselves, being brought up with the idea that labor is degrading, while necessity compels them to resort to some means of getting a living. Pride and poverty are forever at war with them, and they drag out a miserable and precarious life, and finally die in poverty and obscurity—ofien kmthsome drunkards. From the Knickerbocker. A LITERARY CHARACTER. One morning, during the ‘ rabid stage’ of the late ‘ pressure,’ while looking over some new publications, in the fashionable magasin of one skilled in bibliography, there enters a middle aged specimen of humanity, who, from crown to heel, bore the marks of a de cayed gentleman. He looked as if he had been ‘ spending the night in a stable, and taking his breakfast at a pump.’ ‘Sir,’ said he, bowing condescendingly to the shopman, and sneaking with a studied precision of diction, ‘you see before you an unfortunate who, as the poet remarks, is greatly ‘ In want of ready rhino, Like many hereabout that you, And some, perhaps, that 1 know.’ Permit me, therefore, my dear sir, to ask, could you oblige me with the loan of a fip?’ x -‘No, sir, I ‘could’ not!’ replied the shop man, sarcastically. ‘ Ah !’ responded the solicitor, 1 I had no idea that the times were so hard here. I thought they were hard enough in Philadel- * piiia, hut nothing like it—nothing like it. J ieel for you,’ he added, laying his hand, with a philanthropic air, upon his breast, ‘ I feel lor you all!’ He mused fora moment, then extending his arm, and flourishing the tattered remnant of a pocket handkerchief, he continued— ‘ What is this great and glorious country coming to, I should like to know, under its present rulers, with their bank laws, sub treasury, so forth ? To ruin, sir—to ut ter ruin ! Man, as the English grammar very correctly observes, is a verb. Our gov ernment, the body corporate, is the verb to be ! — to do ! And we, the people, sir, of this great and glorious country, are the miserable passive verb, to suffer !’ * Shade of Cicero!’ thought we, ‘such elo quence would shame the oratory of our Eagle of the .North!’ ‘ Sir,’ said the shopman, ‘ I have no time to attend to you. You will oblige rne by leaving the store/ ‘ Oh certainly !’ And he retired accordingly. The battle of eleven hundred Horses. —Two of the (Spanish) regiments which had been quartered in Fund were cavalry, mounted on fine black long tailed Andalusian horses. It was impracticable to bring off these horses, about eleven hundred in number, and Roma no'uas not a man who could order them to be destroyed ; le was fond of horses himself, and knew that every man was attached to the beast which had carried him so far and so faithfully. Their bridles were therefore taken off, and they were turned loose upon the beach. A | scene ensued such as probably never before i was witnessed. They were sensible that they | were no longer under any restraint of human ! pbwer. A general conflict ensued, in which, | retaining the discipline they had learned, they | charged each other in squadrons of ten or I twelve together, then closely engaged, stri j king with their fore feet, and biting and tear ; ing each other with the most ferocious rage, and trampling over those which were beaten down, till the shore in ihe course of a quarter of an hour, was strewn with the dead and disabled. Part of them had been set free on a rising ground, at a distance; they .o sooner heard the roar of battle, ti an they came thundering down over the intermediate hedges, and catching the contagious madness, plunged into the fight with equal fury. Sub lime as the scene was, it was too horrible to he long contemplated, and Romano, in mer cy, gave orders for destroying them; but it was foun ! too dangerous to attempt this, and alter the last boats quitted the beach, the few horses that remained were seen still engaged in the dreadful work of mutual destruction.— Southey. ‘ Thunder,’ observes Sir John ITerschd,’ ‘can scarcely ever be beard more than 20 or 30 miles from the flash which produces it. Lightning, on the other hand, may be seen, or at least its reflection in the clouds, form ing what is called sheet lightning, at the dis tance of 150 or 200 miles.’ Bennett, of the N. Y. Herald, says that ‘the Eng!i ll surpass us in many thins, but in wo -1 men and horses ;ve beat them out and out,’ [NO. 34.
