fir ho UftK Woman axd Mauri age.-I have speculated a great deal upon matrimony. I have seen a young and beautiful woman, the pride of gay circles, married, as the world say?, well. Some have moved into costly houses, and their friends have all come and looked at their furniture and their splendid arrangement for happiness, and they have gone away and committed iheia to their sunny hopes cheerfully and without fear. It is natural to be sanguine for them; as the young sometimes arc earned away by similar feelings. I love to get, unobserved, into a corner, and "watch the bride in her white attire, and, with her smiling face and her soft eyes meeting me in their pride of life, weave a waking dream of future happiness, and persuade 'myself that it will be true. I think how they will sit upon the luxurious sofa as twilight falls, and build gay hopes, and murmur in low tone. the now ni)t forbidden tenderness; and how ibrilliiigly the allowed kiss and beautiful endearments of wedded life wi...

COIVTlYZZJItCIilL. THURSDAY, MARCH 19, 1857. . TSearrival of three merchant vessels the past week, viz. : the Raduga ami L. P. Foster on Friday and the sch San Diego ou Mon Jay has imparted a bustling appearance to our wharves and etrects, but we do not discover a very active demand for goods ; the retailers complain of an unusually dull state of trade for the seaeon. The Raduga, from Boston, brings a large cargo, mostly on ships account, of which building materials, bread and salt fnrtn a large portion; several parcels of goods by this vessel were sold to arrive some time since. Her arrival therefore does not excite much animation ia trade. The L. P. Foster bring3 a well assorted cargo of lumber from Tckalet, Puget Sound.

THE PACIFIC Commercial Advertiser. The ISritish Review. The power exercised in England by the Quarterly Review, is one of those tilings in wliich the popular feeling of this country has perhaps no sympathy. All our politics and politicians, our book publishers and book writers would stagnate if they had to wait three months for critical exposition in a hundred and fifty Daces of ablv written and expensive literature. e had rather have our paragraphs not quite so neatly turned, our rhetoric less polished, our arguments and decisions shorter and more condensed, and then take them in regular and moderate doses before eating in the morning. It is even true that we have scarcely a . Monthly or a Weekly, if we except those of the latter - made up from the Dailies of any important political weight. To the last we look fur all our light on these subjects, or most of it, at a price so low that poverty can enjoy it as well as riches, and perhaps we may add of a kind so poor that every thought...

. COlVTIVTEIlCIill. THURSDAY, MARCH 28, 1857. The violent storms of the past week have left us little to re port on the subject of trade-, the vessels in port have been de barred from discharging or receiving freight except at rare in terval, between the showers-, and business of all kinds appears to have been almost entirely interrupted. . Our quotations it will be noticed are mostly from auction sales, as we have heard of but few private transactions. We have no arrivals of merchant vessels to report and no departures. The wreck of the N. O. bark J. C. Fremont as it now lies on Christmas Island was sold at auction for account of underwriters on Monday for $110. The cargo of lumber originally consist ing of 50,000 feet dressed, and 300,000 feet rough, was also put up and sold for $205 the inrchasers of bothwreck and cargo taking the risk of finding all, any, or no part thereof on the island.
