ing will so become sach a people as the bright jewel of magnanimity. To power belongs the sweet prerogative of mercy. The North is omnipotent, and in such an hour it is only mean souls that thirst for vengeance. Take the South by the hand in her fallen estate; lift her up, aud sustain her. Say to her: "It is true we have warred, but we are kindred, born of the same mother, and we will be friends.'' Let the Lethean waters of oblivion wash away all hitter memoriesT The brightest names in his tory that shine forever like stars in the clear firmament are of those who in the hour of triumph forgave their prostrate foes. Scipio was generous, Pericles was merciful, Washington was magnanimous, and the lustre of these heavenly virtues far outshines on the pages of history the brilliant fame of their warlike deeds. Amnesty is an attribute of the blessed Naza rene. He extended it from tbe cross to a ruined world that slew him. Charity is of celestial origin—an inhabitant of the Christian's hea...

For the Spectator. A Parody. Tell me ye winged winds That round my pathway roar, Do ye not knoWsome spot Where women fret no more ? Some lone and pleasant dell, Some 'holler' in the ground, Where babies never yell, And cradles are not found ? The loud wind blew the snow into my face, And snickered as it answered "nary place." Tell me, thou misty deep, Whose billows 'round me play, Knows't thou not some favored spot, Some island far away, Where weary man can find A place to smoke in peace; Where crinoline is not, And hoops are out of place ? The loud winds, sounding a perpetual shout, Stopt for a while and spluttered, "you git out." And thou, serenest moon, That with such holy face, Dost look upon the girls, Who, with their beaux embrace, Tell me, in all thy rounds, Hast thou not seen some spot Where muslin is not found, And calico is not ? Behind a cloud the v moon withdrew in woe, And a voice sweet, but sad, responded "Poh !" Tell me. my secret soul, O, tell me, Hope and Faith, Is ...

In the Spectator of Nov. 19th, we published a Parody from "L. M." and have received from an indignant Miss the following Keply. Tell me, ye winged winds, That round my pathway sigh, How dare you thus to tell, That silly/wicked lie; To say there is no spot, No hole beneath the ground, AVhere women trouble not, And babies aro not found ! The wind abashed, her blast aside withdrew, And hoarsely growled, 'I never said so, for I do.' Tell me thou misty deep, Whose billows round mo play, Know-est thou no loathsome spot, Perchance noi far away ? A place to smoke and drink, For men abased and low, "VYhere ladies would not think, Or even dare to go ? The loud wind ceased, and gently whispering said Into my list'ning ear: "I do, I do, indeed." And thou my gentle moon, Who still so pensive moves, And hast thou never seen Some men whom none could love ; Some crusty, growling squirts, Who lonely end this life; Old owls, in dirty shirts ? From under clouds, the moon withdrew her face, And brightl...

the rich man's fields by the sweat of the poor man's brow. Ordinary tyranny, oppression, excessive taxation —these bear lightly on tbe happiness of the mass of the community compared with a fraudulent currency, and the robberies committed by depreciated paper. Our own history has recorded for our instruction enough, and more than enough of the demoralizing tendency, the injustice, and the intolerable oppression on the virtuous and will-disposed of a degraded paper currency, authorized by law or in any way countenanced by Government." It it one of the most successful devices, in times of peace or war, expansions or revulsions, to accomplish tbe transfer of all the precious metals from the great mass of the people into the hands of the few, where they are hoarded in secret places or deposited in strong boxes under bolts and bars, while the people are left to endure all the inconvenience, sacrifice, and demoralization resulting from the use of a depreciated and worthless paper money.

Parody No. 3, To Femini?ies generally. BY TIU'XDER A. SHUNN. Tell me, ye winged winds, That round my pathway roar, Do ye not know some spot Where women flirt no more ? Some high and holy school, Some city blest of heaven, Whore ladies do not rule, And peace to man is given ? The wind replied, "as long as she is human Such must ever be poor mortal woman.*' Tell me thou misty deep, Whose billows round me play, Will woman ever speak In any other way, Than "like a lightning streak Broke loose and run away— Their tongues being fast midway And wagging at full play? A roar came up from the boundless deep, And said "her only silence is in sleep." Tell me, thou silent night Will woman e"er forget. When moon and stars are bright, To act the hypocrite? Will she forsake her guile Or ever think amiss To make a treach'rous smile Or give a Judas' kiss? The night replied and still darker frowned, ; "A true and faithful woman is not found ! Tell me thou rolling sun, Who all the earth surveys, DicTst...
