An.f who .shall chide us if we Sned A tear to-day, though shed in vain, O'er so much joy and '.wauty ifled, That never can be ours again : Tor now it is we see how bright Were those young iiours we have resign'd JJow, when we've reached another height, And turning, sadlylook behind! I Oh, had we seen them then, as now We see them through the lapse of years, How fleeting had they seemed, and how Replete with smiles and free from tears! How gladly would we have delayed, If possible, their rapid flight, And kept them with us till we made Them double all their sweet delight!

The Cheerful Heart How wearily the little news-boy plodded along the deserted streets' on that New Year's Evel The cold rain was beating, fiercely upon him, and a few tattered garments served to protect him from its rage. All day long he had been out amid the s torm. and was now returning, weary, ond hungry home. The street lamps were lighted, and as be passed by them you could see by the gleam that his face was pale and ema'ciate'd—'could see that, young as he was, something had been there already to attenuate his features, and give him that wan and desolate look which can be given only by some great affliction, some pinching want or overwhelming grief. You could ull at a glance that dark shadows was resting upon his pathway—a shadow out of which there seemed, just then, biit little hope of escape. Born amid poverty and wretchedness, and left fatherless while yet in his cradle, his life up to that hour had beennothingbutmisery—and the whole record of that lite was written in ...

The Baw material!. A green 'un in the New York Spirit gives the following as his experience in the oyster line :— '•I never seed any of the animals till I went to New Orleans." One night a friend of mine said to-me, "are you fond of oysters ?" 'I aint nothin' else,' says I. 'Reckon,' says he, 'I can push more than any living man.' 'I can take the shine out of you,* says I, and I'll anti on that." 'Done,' says he, 'we'll bet suppers, and go right out and get 'em.' We went into what we called 'a roas. ted rat,' and arter we sot down, he asked me how I'd take 'em.' I didn't know what to say, and I told him I'd take 'em any way he chose. 'Waiter!' he sung out, 'bring us a dozen raw to begin on, then a stew, and after that a dozen fried !' Putty soon a fellow with his shirt tail hanging down- before, sot down a plate full of nasty slimy look in' things, that made me gag to look at 'era I dassent say a word for fear of bein' found out but ef I didn't imbide the brandy to keep them...

Recipe for making Goo&Bread. —James Roche, long celebrated in Baltimore, as a baker of excellent bread, having retired from business, has furnished the Baltimore American with the following recipe for making good breadj with a request that it should be published for the information of the public: "Take an earthen vessel, larger at the top than the bottom, and in it put-one pint of milkwarm water, one and a half pounds of flour, and half pint of mall yeast; mix them well together, and set it nway (in winter it should be in a warm place) until it rises and falls, again, will be in from three to fivehours; (it may be set at night, if it be wanted in the morning;) then put two large spoonsful of salt into two quarts of water, and mix it well with the' above rising; then put it in about nine pounds of flour, and work your dough well/and set it by until it becomes light Then make it out in loaves.

{From the Bradford Reporter, Extra.] North Branch Canal* ' LETTER II. Hi tarty projection—irnnenu chain of Inland Navigation united and extended by it. Before entering upon any consideration of the revenue which the State r would derive from the completion of this work, it is proper I should look at its t 'present condition, and the probable cost of such completion. v '• The dimensions of the wore, as far «s constructed above the mouth of the Lackawanna, correspond with those on the line extending down the river to Co-. lumbia. The width istwenty-eighiftiet on the bottom ; forty feet at the surface, —-providiog"for four feet depth of water. . The locks are ninety feet long by seXenteen feet wide in the chamber; arid the lockage, from the mouth of Lackawanna to the State line, averages but little over two feet per mile I Its capacity, when completed, would therefore, be ample to puss a million of tons each >way, every year.

NORTH BRANCH CANAI In common with (he people of Northern Pennsylvania, we owe a debt of gratitude to those persons in other portions of the State, who, having no especial interest in the matter have labored zealously this winter, to secure the completion of ihe North Branch Extension. Should it be completed, they can in after years, recur to ihe fact of their having so directed iheir influence, with proud and hearly salisfaciion. He is a benefactor, who exerts himself for the well being of his kind: certainly not he who only cares for self. The spirit which actuates the latter, moving in a community, would effectually destroy its vitality. That community in which liberality is the prominent feature, will always thrive, despite ihe most untoward circumstanres. We are led lo these remarks from the fjet of having noticed in some of our legislators, a manifestation of the same illiberal spirit lutrardi their fellow citizens of other see- . It would seem that members of the Legis...

Death of the Folh Dynasty. But a litihe while now, and the present general Administration will have died a natural death. Not soitstlightlng effects upon the prosperity and industry of the country. TTfcy will live—be felt years hence, and perhaps never recovered from. Future geneiations havefyct to witness the results of the policy of Polk's Administration. — In reviewing its history, we behold a succession if acts, fraught with imminent danger to the country, and which may result in its dissolution. Fastened upon the country by a system of fraud and deception,its every act has been with a view to secure the continued ascendency of a cor rupt and designing faction. The interests of the people have been overlooked, and opposition to their known wishes has marked every step of its progress. In the face of a great majority of the American people, it has extended the curse of human slavery j nnd in spite of their earnest remonstrances, held in check the developing energies of th...

Sir. Puller's Speech. We find in the Harrisburg Telegraph, the speech of Henry M. Fuller, Esq. of Luzerne, delivered in the. House of Representatives of this Slate, on the North Branch Extension, a" week or two since. We regard it as a splendid effort—deep in research and incontrovertible in argument. A greater amoiint of important information we never saw condensed in the same space. Mr. Fuller has taken the lead in the movement at Harrisburg, and If an appropriation is made, to him more than any other man, will the ' tate be indebted for it. —It is our intention to lay the speech before our readers next week,.believing it will be read with interest and satisfaction.

THJBliROTOCOL AGAIN. ThefPPIsident ^^ ^ aQ3Wer to ^ resolution of Congress, sent in a massage, ndmiuing the execution of the paper referred lo in another column, under the above lille, in which he endeavors, first, to throw the blame upon the commissioners, second, he asserts that the commissioners did no more than explain the Senate amendments, and thirdly, if they even did go so far in effect to annul those amendments, the treaty with ihe protocol is as good as it would be without it. Mr. Polk has, indeed, got himselfintoabad scrape, but he will manage to lie himself out of itf-lo the satisfaction of the party. 'Tylerism,' is not in the code of modern Democracy, and we have no doubt Mr. Polk will re tire with honors thick upon'his brow. It is a fortunate circumstance that his seat is not the throne of Great Britain, or Mr. King Polk's head would be found tolling around in search of a body. A less offence than his, has oft bathed the headsman's axe with blood. —Mauch Chunk ...

NORTH BRANCH" CANaOI JVa give the Legislative proceedinH upon tbi* important subject up to tlL time of our going to press.

But one thinfr seems very certain—the: friends of the measure and the true friends to the interest of the commonwealth have combined their energies to effect the completion of a work, the abandonment and n«>. lect of which has been too foag a reproach upon the policy of the State. There are still some narrow views to b» enlarged or removed ^ some sectional or personal teeling* to be moderated—bat the general tone of legislative opinion harmonizes with the proposed comple tion of the work.
