From the Religious Souvenir, for 1839. AflUICl 'LTl'RK £l0ri cultural. BT C W. EVEREST. How blest the Farmer's simple life? How pure the joy it yield-,! Far from the world's tempestuous strife, Free 'mid the scented fields! When morning woos, the roseate hue O'er the far hills away, His footsteps brush the silver;' dew, To greet the welcoming day. When Sol's first beam in glory grows. And blith the sky-lark's song, Pleased, to his toil the farmer goes, With cheerful steps along. While Noon broods o'er the sultry sky, And sun beams fierce are cast. Where the cool streamlet wanders by, He shares his sweet repast. When twilight's gentlest shadows fall Along the darkening plain, He lists his faithful watch-dog's call, To warn the listening train. Down the green lane young hurrying feet Their eager pathway press, His loved one's come in joy to greet. And claim their sires caress. Then, when the evening prayer is said, And Heaven with praise is blest, How twett reclines his weary ...

The whi g party, at this moment is an anomaly, even in the mental and moral vision of its own most warm and devoted adhetants. Without concert, without organization, without any general plan of action, it has essayed to effect a political revolution, of thrice the magnitude of that which haloed the three glorious days of model n France.

A li KANSAS E L O Q U K N (J E TTV11 put the following sample of an Arkansas lawyer's eloquence against any thing they can bring fiom the west. As to the justness of bis reasoning we say nothing, but as to its conclusiveness we defy any one. to find a match. His client was brought up for stealing a mule. After the witnesses had been all sworn, and the lawyer on the other side had given his opinion, our orator gave the jury the following blast: "Gentlemen of the jury, the whole of you, there you set.
