An Autumn for the Nation There is something exquisitely beautiful in these ideas of the Rev. Mr. Fletcher pastor of the Seeond Universalist Church al Lowell, Mass., a few days ago, from the text: "We all do fade as ' a leaf." He is speaking of the late , frosts and unusually fine weather of the autumn of 1861, and says:—- ' '•Summer, glorious, protracted, beautiful summer, loth to leave her cherished treasures, lingered and breathed upon fields and gardens long after the . usual time of her departure. Autumn came , and hind in hand they walked along, so gently, so harmoniously, that flowera looked, up and smiled in al) their loveliness, beneath the influence of their united reign. . . But they have spoken their adieus and parted company, an<| with her breath of frost autumn has spoiled the lingering, freshnrss of the field and garden, and touched with russet the foliage of the forest.

^ SMELfCTJPOETRY ^ ONR SHORT YEAR. BY D. HARDY, Jft. In one short year, O who can tell A What changes time may bringi / vThe sun may shine as brightly then, The birds as sweetly sing; The flowers unfold their petals fair, And ail without be gay, But those we love so dearly now, May then have passed away. Misfortune's tide mayfroU along, And cloud the noble^row; And hearts that are from sorrow free,. May then in sadness bow. The future may all bright .appear, As one unclouded day; But clouds may gather dim and dark, And beauty fade away. The yonng may now dream goHen dreams, The future has in store; But ere one year hath passed away Their blissful dreams are o'er; They find the earth hath many wrongs To steel the youthful heart, And make the spirits bow beneath Their earth depressing art. The changes vast of one short year So strangely do they seem; That we can scarcely dream them aught But one short, mournful dream. Ill one short year, and all we love, May then have passed away; A...

TRUE POETRY For elegance and beauty, the following lines from the pen of Charles Mackay, challenge the whole world of poesy. How many thoughts I gave thee! Come hither on the grass, And if thou't count nnfailing The green blades asVe pass; Or the leaves that sigh and tremble, To the sweet wind of the west, Or the rippling of the river, Or the sunbeams on its breast, I'll count the thoughts I give thee, My beautiful, my blest! How many joys I owe thee! Come sit where seas run high, And count the heaving billows, ' That break on the shore and die—Or the grains of sand they fondle, When the storms are overblown, Or the pearls in the deep sea caverns, Or the 8tara in the milky zone, <• And I'll count the joys t owe thee, My beautiful, my own! And how much love 1 proffer! Come scoop the ocean dry, Or weigh in thy " tiny balance The star ships of the sky; Or twine around thy fingers, The sunlight streaming wide, Or fold it in thy bosom;

The New York Tribune makes the following sensible remarks on the subject of hasty marriages: There is not a city, there is scarcely a township which does not number among its inhabitants women who have married on very short acquaintance, only to be abus ed, deserted, and left a burden and a life long sorrow to the families in which they were born'ant! reared.and which they most improperly deserted to share the fortune of relative strangers.
