lHfc. THIRTEEN VOTES, OR THE WACER. [From the Roston Mercantile Journal.] A TRUE STOItr. In a town in the interior of the Granite sta(e, not many years since, a gentleman of some property, and no little political Consideration, resided, whose name we shall call Martyn. He was a great stickier for party principle, insomuch that he was sometimes induced bv party zeal to violate his moral duties. ' On one occasion in particular, when a very important election was taking place, upon the result of which, perhaps, the very existence of his party depended, he was so carried away by his party feelings, as to deposite thirteen votes for one individual at the same time in (he be-Hot box; in defiance of the lav- which provides that no man to whichsoever party he may belong, or however worthy may be his favorite candidate, shall deposite more than one ballot for any one individual, for one office I >\ attic Martyn was unfortunatel y detected in thi,s equivolentact; & al...

MEMORY. From the Evangelical Magazine. BY VHi R. BIDOI.ECOJI. Memory, the beacon of despair, the talisman of human felicity, the pole-star of genius'mystic flight, how mysterious in its power—how ethereal in its origin, how enrapturing in its influence! Ic dissipates the dusky twilight of sorrow's nighty reign, disrobes the ' feelings of the gloomy mantle of mourning, disperses the murky clouds of disappointments, anil plants in their stead, the holy joy of youthful association, enkindled into " life anew. Like the attraction that pervades all matter, its iullucnce is felt throughout each link of "being's glorious chain," and its power is realized and acknowledged in all the various parts ol animated aa* turc. Association and Hope, the shrines before which the devotee of pleasure offer! his most frequent solicitations, at once rush back to it, as the fountain from whence they derive their celestial power, The loftiest enjoyments to he deduced from the depths ol science, th...

THAT LITTLE SONG nv CATHARINE u. WATERMAN. SING me again that little song, Oh! sing it one: again! A thousand buried memories rise, Before its simple strain. I heard it when a happy child, Amid a merry throng, From gleesomc voices long since hush'd: Oh! sing that little song! I see again the bright green sward, Whereon we gladly play'd, I hear again the echoing sound Their little footsteps made. Their voices, like a ringing shell, Are murmuring in mine ears, And not a single eye is dim With sorrow or with tears.' Hither they come, the rose-lip'd ones, In many a sh.tcr pair. While the rich music of their hearts, Swell out upon the air. Oil! thro' the long, long lapse of years . They greet me once again, Those young companions of mv mirth, Waked by that simple strain. Heed not the tears within mine eyes, While the quick memories throng Of other days upon my heart, Oh! sing that little song.

THE BLIND. Shortly after the death of Mr. Friedlander, the students of tho ^ Institution for the blind, assembled and resolved that an obituary should be prepared for their friend and benefactor, and the task was devolved upon Henry J. Gray, of Virginia, one of the blind, a lad in his fifteenth year. He have already had occasion to notice the poetic composition, and musical writings of this wonderful youth; we now invite attention to his notice ofhis beloved teacher. IFc copy it from (he Student's Magazine, published in the institute, and printed with raised letters for the blind. U. S. Gazelle. There is a delight, an inexpressible piesure in hope, when the mind looks for ward to futurity's golden bonis with ar eye of joy; but there is a deep and awful gloom east over the soul, when we reflect upon the past with sad and melancholy regret- There is a charm in the calm summer evening, when the last ray of the setting sun paints the horizon—when the warblers of the groves seek ...

W HAT IS LOCO FOCOISM. 1 he National Intelligencer in the course ol some remarks on the late decision ol the Supreme Court ot the United States, on the great appeal cases Irom Alabama, touching the rights and duties of corporations, forcibl y describes Loco Focoism to comprehend "the levelling orpulling-down principle, which professes to contend only sgainst artificle or unjust distinctions among men, but ends in openly making war against al! ths laws and established usages ol society, as being so many unnatural and unbearable restraints upon the freedom and equality which common rights ul all the human race." Following up these remarks, (he Intelligencer traces the spirit ot Loco Focoism from the days of Jack Cade to (lie present tune and m the chain- ler of that distinguished forerunner of the loco focos of the present day, points out the consistencv in his principles And those which are boldly avowed now by men in high places.

The Public IVorks. There is nothing we more regret than the fact that the State Improvements, are ID a most wretched condition, never since the canal banks have become solid, has there been such a continued series of breaks in its banks, as there has since the commencement of this season. There is hardly a week or even a day passes over without some breaking of the banks which detains 'the boats more or less. Wha-J can be the cause of this; Is it not (he incapacity or inattention of the new officers. If they attended to their business, the leaks would be discovered before they became breaks. Notwithstanding they have men Supervisors on the same distance that was formerl y under four.

"Is he Iioiicat?" This is the old Democratic omcter bv which the fitness of men, for offices Jf responsibilit y were tried. Not many months since, we tried to direct the public mind to the importance of having non-Mi rulers, if they wished those rulers to select men to fill the offices in their gift, with men, in any way qualified, or deserving. We then said that knaves and fools would form the coterie around the "GREAT EXPOSED," if Fate or Fortune should favor his success. Fraud, and the most consummate villiany triumphed; and now the truth of our assertions is clearly exemplified. Gamblers, rowdies/drunkards and thieves, seek and obtain countenance and preferment.— There are some exceptions, some who we really regret to sec in such company. "A man is known b y the company lie keeps," and we have no other reason to suspect them, but seeing their associates. It is an insult to every honest partisan of the new administration, to have the very dregs of society, raked up from t...
