When surrounded by the joys and com- forts of home, alas, how few appreciate it properly, petty grievances, the anoyances of every day life, are too apt to be transformed into mountains of misery by the way wa-d- ness of youth, or the caprice and whim of childhood. Buoyant with youth and hope, the young mind is too prone to look into the future, and amid the creations ol imagi- nation, build up fancies and create joys and pleasures that after years may never ripen into a golden fruition.

ata JCS-A meeting of the citizens of VVash- ington will take place in this city on next Thursday, to take into consideration the necessity of aiding the liberal cause in Nica- ragua with sympathy if nothing else. We have received a letter from Mr. Lockridge, the indefatagible agent, who informs us that he has enrolled about three hundred emi- grants for that country. In the South, we are peculiarly interested in tha movement, for that Republic may yet be a last resort for our institutions. But aside from that, the spread of republican in. stitutions is dear to every American heart, and no patriot can contemplate the glorious stand taken, and so far maintained by the indomitable Walker and his brave followers, against sach fearful odds, without a thrill of American pride swelling his bosom. We ■call on all persons who love the institutions •of freedom, to meet us at the time suggest- ed, and let us council together. Patriotic speeches will be delivered on the occasion.

10VE 8CJS1TE. Mr. Poppa paid his two hundred and sixty seventh risit to Miss Clarissa Cooler the other evening. He found her in a rocker, alone in the parlour; stole his arm around her alabaster neck, and sipped the ncetar of her cherry lips; a proceeding there was not the least harm 1 , considering (Stt they had come to an agreement, and were generally reported to be on the high road to matrimony. The lady took it quietly—even indifferently, to judge from the lassitude of her attitude in the- rocker, the laay use of her fan and- her exclamation of something be- tween a heigh ho and a ya-hum. Commonplaces were disposed of. Then followed a silence, broken only by Mr Popps slapping at the musquitoes, and Miss Clarissa fanning herself unceasingly. At length Poppa proposed a prominade and ice cream. Clarissa declined both, adding; " I wish to stay at home, for I have something particular to tell you.; *Indeedf" said Popps: "what is it dear?" «Yo* expect our weddiDg to takq, place in thr...

We will mot doubt that Mr. Fillmore said as ttove in Louisville, Kentucky.

They have administered this governmcnt^suoh & manner as to bring shame antfwproach upon it; and it is their business to answer at the bar oí the people for the violated trust. At an extraordinary time, and under extra- ordinary circumstances, nations destiny were confided to their keeping. No foreign war depleted the public treasury. No heavy debt was hangiDg upon us. No unfavourable seasons blas- ted the crop of the husbandman. No hostile fleet crippled our commerce. No domestic contentions dotted the land with intestine fires. Within and with- out there was peace, prosperity, abund* ancc, and contentment.
