From the DOwnlngton Gazette, KITCHEN POETRY. I'm tired of work, said Roily Orayi h'a nothing but sr-.m'. the livelong d iy; I've walloped the pots awl kettles round ¦Till my ears ire sick of the very sound, My hands are as hard as a critter's horn, Such things I never since I wasborn, On any de ent body did sec, Much more on one that was made like me. There! there! the pot is sputtering over, B cause I foreot to take iff the cover—¦ The fat is scorching, the bread is burning-Run, Polly, run, the flitter needs turning—The broom is worn away to the hub—. The brush is only a tangled stub, How many spreading hitching motions I've made in wearing out them notions! I've twisted my hips ar.d shoulder out, In banging the beds and blankets about, There : re twn long marks astride my nose! They husbands mean, but the deuce only knows When one will come! and here I must stayin this stewed up kitchen to work all day. There was Betsy Grant and llulda Drew, Two h.zy drabs as ever I knew, ...

DIOCLES. Among the laws which Dioclcs jjave to the S_yracusians there was one which enacted, 'that no mtn should presume to enter, armed, into an assembly of people; in case any should, he was to suffer death.' One day an alarm was given ofthe enemy approaching, and Diodes haistened to meet them, with his sword by his side. On the way he was informed that the people indifferent to their common danger, had assembled to talk sedition in the forum; anil, forgeting all inferior circumstances in his zeal for public safety, he ,stepped, armed as he was, into the midst of the assembly, intending to use his best I endeavours to recall them to a sense of their duty; but before he could address them, one of the busiest of the factious csl led out, 'that Diodes, in arms among the people, had broken the laws which he had himself made." Diodes struck, but not confounded, turned towards his accuser, replied with a loud voice, "Most true, nor shall Diodes be last to sanction his own laws." O...

VIRTUE. The bright wreath of the bard may wither—the creations of the iculptor may moulder into dust, tlie throne of the conque.ior may be shivered by an imposing power, into atoms—the fame of the warrior may no longer be hymned by the recording minstrel— the hones of the vouth may be disappointed—but that which hallows the cottage and sheds a glory around tlie palace, virtue, shall never decay. I would rather have "the inward glory" with which the poor man 'is crowned,' than overshadow the world with my martial banners. I would not exchange his lot for ths reputation ot a Raphael, the inspiration of a Byron—the eloquence of a Klarsbe.iu, or tlie intellect of a Bacon. I may be despised here, but if I possess it dien shall I tower above them all when the gi.illy shall tremble io their secret p laces as they behold the "Uoaven's rolloc together as " a ;croll,"

Rogers the Thief. l Last week we gave a brief statement o the facts, relative to the discharge of this DETECTED ROBBER, whereupon that pink of decency, the ".Qdvoca'e," says we lie, (so does he, in the gutter, occasionally)—But that the people may think there is some mistake, we insert the entire article from the "Advocate" contra dieting our charge; and if our readers, as well as those of the "Advocate,'" do not say we have the poor tiling in a forked stick, we shall miss our guess. The truth is, we should not trouble ourselves about the charges against us, but when the most malicious untruths are uttered, in order if possible to screen their guilty Governor from the charge of forming his suite of "drunkards and thieves," we feel bound to prove what we say. Now then to what we did say; w* said Ro-crs was a DETECTED THIEF, and we said he was released by Porter's Prosecuting Attorney. Whereupun the Ad. vocate utters the following.
