MISCELLANEOUS. From the Charleston Mercury. THE LAST SESSION OF CONGRESS THE TWENTY-FIRST RULE. We pursue our review of -the course of The Democratic party. And here it is pro per to notice .an article in the Globe of Friday night, in which it notices at-length the matters we have assigned as among the causes of Mr. Van Buren's defeat-es pecially the action of the party on the Tt.riff and the 21st Rule. That paper re vives its old and absurd charge against the free trade mo of the south that they were the cause of the defeat of McKay's Tariff bill. If the Globe believes that, nobody else does. It was knoten that a much larger majority would have voted against the passage of that bill than voted to lay it on the table. There nas no manner of doubt about the matter at the time, anti if there had been. the subsrquent course of the party in Ne w York. Pennsyl vania and other manufneturing States would-have set it at rest. They relused to go into the Presidential election or. the issue-a...

One thing is ce-tain, we an never be a party'toany ariingernent, which would imply approbation of slavery."

Her spun was like the sky, Whose thousand stars shine beautiful and brighi, Like flowers that know not what it is to die, Like long link'd shadeless months of polar light, Like music floating o'er a waveless lake, W bile echo answers from the flowery brake, Weep not for her ! Weep not for-her! 'She died in early youth, E're hope had lost its ricl'romantic hues, When human bosoms seem'd the homes of truth, And earth still gleam'd with beauty's radient dews, - Her summer prime waned not to days that . freeze, Her wine of life was not run to the lees, Weep not for her ! Weep not for her.! - By fleet or slow decay, It never grieved her bosom's care to mark The playmates of her childhood wane away, Her prospects wither, and her hopes grow dark.
