- TO HOPE. ght of-the soul! thine hour once past, The proudesr brow must bend at last. :Pale agony-the heart must-wring, - Deipair must plant the sullen string, The weary spirit long to part, And all be but the wreck of heart. Bright tenant of tie trembling breast, Give-but my sinking spirit rest. Tho' friendship flies, or love betrays, Still on thy light shrill fix my gaze, 1jystar, though clduded and alone, Until my pilgrimage is done. " The traveller in the fiery sand Where Afric spreads her burning strand, When thunders roar and whirlwinds rise And Heaven is darkening on his eyes, Struggles in vain, sinks panting down, And sees his fate in nature's frown. But. let him find some crystal stream, His eyes with sudden-lustre beam, So, Hope; at the enchanting voice, - Delicious.dreams the soul rejoice, The agony of heart is o'er; It trembles, but it lives once more. Angel of life! thy vigil keep, Above my waking and my sleep; - Still pour upon my fainting eyes Thebeam. the beauty of ...

FOREIGN NEWS From the N. Y. Herald Extra. ARRVAL OF THE STEAM SIP HtaERNIA. FIFTE$N DAYS LATER FROM . EUROPE. - The- Hibernia. arrived at Boston on the - morning of the 7th, bringing London and Liverpool papers to the 19th ult. The general aspect of trade remains about the same. The Cotton market had experienced a slight--decline. The news by the Cam bria, which arrived on the 13th, put an end to all speculation, but the trade con tinued to buy regularly, and there was.a - steady, demand. The European Times sas that matters would probably remain in that state until it was known what ef feet Sir RoberrPeel's views respecting the Oregon question would produce in the . United States. The last steamer, it will be remembred, sailed an hour-or two after the explanations in Parliament respecting the Oregon ques lion. When the detention of the packet, to carry:. out: these explanations, was buzzed abour, the Cotton market felt the influence of the. warlike rumors which prevailed; and previo...

.xtract of a letter received le Charleston from a respectable planter, dated "EDISTO ISLA%'D, May4. Our agricultural prospects are indeed gloomy, it is-estinated that on this Island, ,only one half of the Cotton crop is not up;. while in three or four plantations, plants of the usual number may be seen, on others, not the one fourth of one acre cheers the grower. Such an occurrence has never taken place within 'my know ledge as a Planter for'33 years. Rain enough to lay the dust has not fallen since the 26th of March. Now, when it is con sidered, that long cottons, especially the finer qualities, require for their maturity the full season with which we are usually visited, and that the time' for the coming up of the crop is form the 1st to the 15th of April. It seems scarcely possible, un - less in reference-on high and warm lands, the Summer be dry, and the Autumn a late one, that the harvest can be other wise than meagre and unprofitable."

commercial marine, is a humiliating corn mentary on the political sagacity and com mercial enterprise of our country. When we consider the commerce of the Gulf of -Mexico alone, foreign and coastwise, which is thus left defenceless to foreign cannon-a commerce which concentrates near the mouth of the Mississippi piore .property than human industry and enter prise have ever elsewhere gi"en, by a sin gle outlet to the sea, and when we reflect on the disorder and distress by the obstruc tion of that commerce, that would pevrado all the walks of life amongst twenty mil lions of people who inhabit this laud, the neglect of the governtent becomes still more surprising and inexplicable. Congress, however. at its last session, passed an act for the transportation of Foreign Mails, and gave the Postmaster General power to contract with steamers for that purpose. We are informed that an offer has been made to the Government for the establishment of a line of steamers from New York to Galvesto...

11MISCELLANEOJS. From the N. Y. Morning News, 3rd inst. LETTERS OF MARQUE. Ti is gen-rally conceded that the only means by which Mexico, in case she obeys the cart of certain papers among us. and declares war, will have as a means of an noyance, only the right of granting letters of marque within her power. As she has no no marine of her own, it becones an interesting question how far other nations may plunder us under her authoity. On this subject, Vattel, book 3d, chap. 15, re marks as follows: "There is no doubt but they .private persons) may with a safe conscience serve their country by fitting nut by privateers, unless the war be evidently unjust. But, on the contrary. foreigners take commis sions from a prince, to prey on a nation, absolutely innocent with respect t. them, are guilty of an infamous practice. The thirstof gold is their orly inducement, and however their commission may 'assucre them impunity, it canaot wash away their exe crable guilt." From this it would seem t...

From the Philadelphta U. S. Gazette. THE EDITOR SATIN HIS SANCTUM. BY TAM. The editor sat in his sanctum, - In a hopeless plight was he ; Fain would he.fall in a thinking fit, For he was at-the extreme of his wit, As to-what his leader should be, He had reaped his brain so often, The soil'seemed barren grown; The forest of wit was felled'to the stump, The flowers of fancy were gone, save a clump, Where the seed had but lately been sown. He fished in the river of knowledge, But his angling line was short; "Surely there'd plenty of fish in the sea, But it's plain as a whale." quoth he, "In deeper waters they're caught." Be dived to the bed of the ocean, Where the. pearls did erest abound; He raked and sifted the briny mud That lies below the emerald flood, - But not an oyster he found. "Ah? what I shall do 7" he murmured; "The devil will be here soon ; Methinks his tones on my tympanum stir, "The men are all waiting for copy,sir ; And now it is after noon." 'I hath been quoted often, ...
