THE FRENCH CONSTITUTION. That any one man should make laws for a tui tion, and execute them himself, is generally re garded, in this country at least, as a. monstrous wrong. Even in England, two hundred years no, Charles I. lost his head, and James II. lost Ins throne, for attempting to do so. In every country where freedom passes for anything at all, in all countries, except the barbarous des potisras of the East, whether monarchy or re public, the people have been supposed to have a right, to some share at least, of the law-making power. They are to bo governed by the laws; at is their interests their lives, their property, their labor which are to bo affected by them. In 4.his country they aro regarded as the only right ful source of law. The spectacle which France presents to the world now is an anomaly. Ono man holds in his hand all that thcro is of government in France. His will is the only law for thirty-five millions of people. What ho permits, they may do what ho forbids, t...

JAPAN AND TUB UNITED STATES. We have heard but little of lato of the expe dition to Japan, which is to bo dispatched early in the Spring. Commodore Terry has been or. dered to command it, and it will be a large squad ron, composed principally of steamers. Of the true object of the expedition nothing of an offi cial character has transpired, but we presume the rumors in regard to it, which have recently been circulating, nre In the main correct. If we sue ceed in establishing a trade between that coun try and our own, it will prove mutually benefi cial ; and we are of the opinion that such a step might be consummated peacefully and with much less belligerent display, were a good diplomatic agent employed for the purpose. We understand that Commodore Perry i3 now in Washington, completing the preliminary ar rangements for tho expedition, and receiving at various times, from the Navy and State Depart ments, verbal instructions in relation to the course ho is to pursue.

f Lines ou the following uttitlmcnt expressed in a Sermon, on Thanksgiving day : "Piety often flourishes most in soil watered with tears; anl succeeds where harvests of temporal good have ceased to grow." Hope's soft petals loves the beam Thatcheer'd them into birth ; pleasure seeks the glittering stream That oozes from the earth ; Knowledge yields her lofty fruit To those who climb with toil ; Rut Heaven's pure plant strikes deepest root, Where, tears have dew'd the soil. Hope, her flowrcts gives the blast When wrecking winds arise ; Pleasure's garlands wither fast Ueforo inclement skies; Knowledge often mocks pnrsuit, Involved in mazy shado ; But Piety sheds richer fruit When other harvests fade.

"CHIVALRY" AT A DISCOUNT. Tho disgraceful scene in the United States Senate, between Messrs, llhctt md Clemens, can hardly lo a subject of regret, since it has bhown that there i one man, bred oven under the fervid sun of tho old South State, who dares bravo public opinion, and disappoint public ex pectation, by refusing to participate in a duel. -If ever provocation could justify a resort to this mode of healing wounded - honor, it would be under circumstances such as have so recently disgraced M the most august body ot legislators in the world." Publicly called a "liar," " cow ard" and u knave," and branded as a "traitor," upon tho floor of the Senate, Senator Ithett has yet had the moral courago to declare, that " he feared God more than man, and would rather encounter tho opprobrium of tho latter, than dare the anger of the former." And that, too, when a truly chivalric and sensitive nature was writhing under tho bitterest words that were ever uttered in such a placo and on such...

FORGIVENESS. BY J. EDMONSTOX. When on a fragrant sandal-tree The woodman' axe descends, And she who bloomed so bcauteottsly, Beneath the weapon bends; E'en on the age that wrought her death, Dying, she breathes her sweetest breath, As if to token in her fall, Peace to her foes, and love to alb How hardly man this lesson learns, To smile aud bless the hand that 6purns, To see the blow, to feel the pain, And render only love again 1 One had it but He came from Heaven ; Reviled, rejected and betrayed, No curse He breathed, no plaint He made, Hut when in death's dark pang he sighed, Prayed for his murderers and died. NEVER TOO LATE TO LEARN. Sofcrates at an extreme old nge, learned to play on musical instruments. This would look ridiculous for some of the rich old men of our city, especially if they should take it into their heads to thrum a guitar under a lady's window which Socrates did not do, but only learned to play on some instrument of his time not a guit ar for the purpose of re...
