DISMISSAL OF GENERAL TALCOTT. We have mentioned that Brevet Brigadier General Talcott was dismissed from tlio service a short time since ; the finding of the court mar tial, convened on charges preferred by tho Sec vetary of War, having been approved by Pres ident Fillmore on tho 8th ult. The dismissal was not anticipated by tho friends of General Talcott, and is almost universally condemned by the press, ns a harsh and uncalled for pun ishment of w hat few men would call nn offence.

OUR FLAG WHEN WE PAIIT. Oh ! what will become of that flag when we part f Shall it droop o'er the tomb of our national ramel Shall it stream o'er the wreck, when each hopo of the heart Has nbandon'd that wreck to oblivion and shame. When the banner of glory forever is furled, Shall each gem be re-set und translated afar 1 Shall the bright constellation that lighted a world Be replaced by a distant and desolate star ? Rather heap Its proud trophies and over them cast This all of our honor this shroud of our shame ; Fire the pilo ! lling the ashes abroad on the blast It was born amid storm let it perish in flames 1 ADVENTURE WITH A TIGER.

THE TOSITION OF PAllTIES.

We think we may safely say that party is the democratic party of tho United States. They tand on the platform of that national democra cy by which the Compromise, tho Union, and the Constitution must all equally be defended. Ey 1 cry where the democratic party has assumed this platform as the test of political orthodoxy. Even in Vermont and Massachusetts, whero the true democracy are in a small minority, they have de clared their adhesion to tho Baltimore platform. We regret to say that our opponents, what- ever may be their professions in favor of the Un ion and the Constitution, are utterly unable to inscribo on their banner "The Compromise ns 'it is."

t ACQUITTAL OF CABET. Paris, July. 28, 1851. After the departure of M. Cabctfor America, Dec, 13, 1848, when ho camo to rejoin his lea. rian Colony, now established at" Nauvoo, tho Government took tho advantage of his absence to accuse him of fraud in his relations with his Colony, as if the enterprise had been only a swindling operation. This accusation was evi dently a mero pretext, and the whole suit noth ing but an act of political persecution. All the reactionary journals vied with each other in venting calumny and abuse against M. Cabet, who was at thesame lime slandered by some of the witnesses, and even condemned to two years imprisonment by the Criminal Court. This took place during his absence, and by default. As soon as M. Cabet believed that prosper ous state of his Icarian Community would per mit him to leave without injury, he returned to Paris, having taken passage at Now York, the 21st of May, in the 6teamer Arctic. It is an uncommon spectaclo to seo n, man accused o...

FAREWELL. . . ;. We may not meet again; Yet oft when lost in fleer, The olden hope will rise. Like ppirits from the deep ; While not a bird that wings Its flight oc'r earth or sea, But whispers, as it sings, , Some thought, loved one of tliee. We may not meet again ; , , For earth has many way , And lips in other lands .Axe voiceful in thy praise ; But thy sweet lute and songs, The places where we met, The glen, the fount, the tree, i All bid me not forget. We may not meet again ; But oh 1 from round mv heart The " light of other days,' Alasl will ne'er depart ; But like some lonely star, That lights the deep blue sea, Thy beauty shines upon The wave of Memory. PHILOSOPHY OF DRUNKENNESS. Oinomania or insanity for wine, is the sub ject for a late article in the "American Journal of insanity." The object of the writer is to show that drunkenness in many of its pluses is a mental disease, sometimes hereditary, and sometimes arises from other causes. lie di vides the disease of drunkenn...

ARRIVAL OF THE BALTIC. The Collins steamship Baltic arrived in this city at six o'clock on Saturday, morning, and her mails were immediately transferred to the Post Office authorities, who punctually distrib uted their contents by nine o'clockthus giving merchants and others, in the metropolis, an op portunity to reply to their European correspon dents by the Pacific, which sailed for Liverpool a few hours afterwards. The probability is, therefore, as tho Pacific and Baltic are the two models of speed in the steam marine of the At lantic, that advices will 1)9 sent nndreplied to between Liverpool and New York, in twenty days. Tho Baltic has made tho shortest pas sage (not the greatest, as one of our cotempo rarics has it) on record, having accomplished the voyage in nine days, thirteen hours, and fif ty minutes. This remarkable voyage, however, was made under 6ome adverse circumstances. Tho force of tho engines was superior to the strength of the wheel floats, and fourteen of the la...

MY MOTHER. My mother she is aged now And many a silver hair Is sadly parted on her brow, Deep furrow'd o'er with care : Oh 1 she has been so kind to me, So loving and sincere.

2f The Editor of the N. Y. Evening Post, who has travelled in Cuba, writes as follows: "Tho Collonial government of Spain is one of the worst forms of government in the world. It allows the people no share in the administra tion of affairs, even by the expression of opin ion ; there is no freedom of speech, of the press, or of occupation ; the despotism of Russia is not more severe or moro hateful. On a population of little more than a million, including the slaves it levies annually, by an arbitrary system of tax. ntion.and every sort of vexatious excuse, a trib ute of twenty-four millions of dollars. With a part of this sum, the Spanish government sup ports twenty thousand soldiers to keep the in habitants in subjection, and the entire Spanish marine, which has its principal stations in the ports of Cuba. No trade or busipess can be pur sued without first paying for a license; no com pany be entertained or amusement take place in any residence, no removal be made from place tn nla...

Great Railway from Halifax to Port Sarkia. It is already known to our renders, that the British Government has officially prof, fered to the Provinces of Canada, Nova Scotia And New Brunswick, a guarantee of 3 1-2 per cent bonds of the Provinces, to a sufficient am ount to construct a Rail way from Halifax to the foot of Lake Huron. On Fridav last, the Canadian Parliament, passed the bill for build ing the road through that Province, by a vote of 38 to 23, McNab of the Graat Western Road violently opposing it. It is estimated the Can adian portion of the road, will cost sixteen mill ions dollars. The bill makes Port Sarnia, the western terminus. Once there, the Detroit and Port Huron road will soon be made. Det. Tribune.

HIDDEN MUSIC. Peep In my bosom's secret cell, There ever dwells a gladdened tone, A voice of seraph melody, To mortal spirits all unknown. No harp e'er woke so sweet a strain No lyre e'er breathed so glad a lay, As that which In my bosom lone, Swells in undying harmony. Storms mar not hush that spirit-voice ; No! 'mid the tempest's loudest roar More sweetly flows that hidden strain, More glad the notes those harp-strings pour. Ah ! yes, 'mid the toils of life, 'Mid agony, and woe, and pain How sweetly soothing are the tones That 6well within my sad heart then. I dwell on earth a wand'rer lone, Yet life ne'er seemed a darksome way ; A lamp is lit within my soul, Which ever sheds a brightening ray. No mortal ear may catch that strain, Or list that thrilling music-tone, The soul's deep chords alone are strung Are touched by angel-hands alone. It is the voice of God that wakes That gladdened echo in the soul, And marvel not that human hand May ne'er the magic power control. A HOPE IN HE...
