Mr. Buchanan on the War, y^e t ake pleasure in laying before our readers le [admirable letter sent by Hon. Jams Bcchiitax to the great war meeting heldon the l^th instant in Philadelphia. It is marked by all the clearness and cogency which .distinguish the productions of this able Statesman, and places the history of the war in so striking a-ljght that no unbiassed reader can fail, we think, to be convinced by its statements. The letter was received with rapturous applause by the meeting; and -will doubtless be greeted with equal commendation by our readers:- , " ..." ' ¦ ¦ : . 1 j WiSHisoTojr, Dec. 17, 1847.

_ Tbe Wlfer-A Thrilling Sbetcn. BT JOBS S. WHITTIM. She was a beautiful girl 'when I first saw her She was standing up at the -afc of hex lover at the marriage altar She was slightly pale—yet ever and anon, as the ceremony proceeded, a faint tinge of crimson crossed her beautiful cheek, like the reflection of a sunset of cloud upon the clear waters of a quiet lake. Her lover, as he clasped her hand within his own, gazed on her a few mo-, ments with unmingled admiration, and warm and eloquent blood shadowed at intervals his. manly forehead and melted in beauty: on his lips. And they gave themselves to one another in the presence of Heaven, and every heart blessed them, as they went their way rejoicing in their, love. Years passed on and I again, saw those lovers. They were seated together where the light of sunset stole through the half-closed crimson curtains, lending a richer tint to the delicate carpeting and the exquisite:embellishment of the rich and gorgeous apartment.

On the eWA dark evening a poor little girl went into the street with bare head and naked feet It is true, she had shoes on. when she went from home, but of what use were they! They were \ery large shoes, her mother had last worn them, they were too large, and die little one lost them in hurrying over the street as two carriages passed quickly by. One shoe was not to be found and the other a boy raua"way.with, saying that he could use. it'for a cradle when he_got children himself The little girl now went on her small naked feet, which were red and blue with co|d,—she carried a number of matches in an old apron, and held one bundle in her hand, Np one had bought of her the whole day, no one had given her -a- iarthing.

Tbe Eloquence of Bathos. .The following extract of a speech delivered in the Massachusetts House of Representatives, by a Mh.

Stbisoi Astipathiks.—7 0ur antipathies and sympathies are most unaccountable manifestations of our nervous impressionability affecting our judgment, and uncontrollable by will or reason. Certain antipathies seem to depend upon a peculiarity of the senses. The horror inspired by the odour of certain flowers may be referred to; this cause—• an antipathy so powerful as to. realize the poetic allusion,, to • " Die of a rose in aromatic pain. " For Amatus Lusitanus relates the case of a monk who fainted when he beheld a rdseyand never quitted his cell while that flower was blooming. Orfila (a less questionable authority) gives the account of the painter Vincent, who was seized with violent vertigo and swooned, when there were roses in the room. Valtain gives the history of an officer who was thrown into convulsions and lost his senses by having pinks in his chamber. Orfda also relates the instance of a lady, forty-six years of age, of a hale constitution, who could never be present w...

The Bible.—How comes it that this.little volume, composed by, humble men in a rude age, when art and science were but in their childhood, has exerted more influence on the human mind and on the social system, than all other books put together? Whence comes it that this book has achieved such marvellous changes in the opinions of mankind—has banished idol-worshi p has abolished infanticide—has put down pol ygamy and divorce—exalted the condition of woman raised the standard of public morality-r-created lor families that blessed thing, a Christian home—^-and caused its other triumph; by causing benevolent institutions, open and expansive, to spring up as with the wand of enchantment? What sort of a book is this, that even the winds and waves of human, passion obey it? What other engine of social improvement has operated so long, and yet lost none of.its virtue? ^ince it appeared, many boasted plans of amelioration have been tried and failed; many codes of jurisprudence have arisen, ...
