niPORTANTCllANGE-SIIII!.IJUin)ING. Late foreign paper bring us intelligence of a very important change in ship-building, which can not fail to interest the mercantile reader. Tho improvement consists in ' dispensing with timbers, the vessel being all solid planning. Tho Peninsular ami Oriental Company uaveju launched a steamship at Cowes, constructed by Messrs. John and Robert White, on what i described their "patented improved diagona nrincinle." The new steamship called tho Vee lis, of 100 tons burthen, is intended to form ono of a fleet of steam packets, upon tho new con tract, to carry the mails between Marseilles and Malta.

INAUGURAL address of President PIKHCE. My Countrymen: It is a relief lo feel th.it no heart but my own can know tho personal re gret and bitter sorrow over which 1 have been borne to a position so suitable for others rather than desirable for myself. The circumstances under which I have been called for a limited time to preside over the destinies of the Repub lic, fill ne with a profound sense of responsibil ity, but with nothing like shrinking apprehen pion. I repair to the post assigned me, not as to one sought, but in obedience to the unsolicit ed expression of your will, sensible onFy of a fearless, faithful and diligent exercise of my best powers. I ought to be, and am truly grateful for the rare manifestation of the national confi dence ; but this, so far frcm lightening my ob ligations, only adds to their weight You have summoned me in mv weakness, you must sus tain me with vour strength. When looking for the fulfilment of reasonable requirements, you will not be unmindful of...

Charge or Tome. No oneof coarse, has failed to observe the difference in the tone of the whig press before and after the election of Gen. Pierce. From the moment he was nominated at Baltimore, there seemed to bo a systematic attempt on the part of a largo portion of the whig papers to malign him in every conceivable way No assault was too atrocious to be made, no detraction ' was too vile to ba employed, to prejudice him in the minds of the people. Tho aspersions upon his courage as a soldier and his honor as a man were base and contemptible. No scandalous story could be coined, and no in famous accusation could bo imagined for the purpose of blasting his good name, that the whig papers did not seize upon with the utmost avidity, and give currency to with extravagant delight, embellishing and aggravating in a man of erpdifohla to nothing but their ingenuity. This was before tho election. The tono of fhpAA miners is now chanced: though Geti IMerce Is the same that he has ever been. T...

TIIE BOON. BT BOBEBT O. ALLISON. There is a boon I crave, More precious far than fame, Or glory's wreaths, that wave Around the warrior's name. When, in the dark and stormy night;. Oppressed with anxious fears, The seaman views the beacon-light, Then Joy his visage wears. So if life grow dark as night, This boon of heavenly love, With its pure and holy light, Can all the gloom remove. WORK IN THE GARDEN. Every farm should have its well appointed and well-stored garden. If well cultivated, it may be the most profitable part of the farm. But independent of this consideration, it is such a fruitful source of comfort and luxury to one's family, that no man, who properly considered upon the subject, would hesitate a moment in providing such an one aa would reflect credit upon himself, and be the pride of the female members of his family.

OAKLAND AND OTTAWA RAILROAD. ThU great work is now In the way of early prosecution, and no doubt exists of its speedy completion to the waters of Lake Michigan. Its importance to every interest of Northern Michigan cannot be overrated. The eonstruc tion of this road, and also of the road from this place to Flint and Saginaw, is, to the citizens of Detroit, Pontine, and the counties through which the respective thoroughfares may pass, or that are contiguous of that vital'and" absolute impor tance that no effort should' be spared by every citizen of this portion of Michigan to hasten their sDeedv comoletion.

' ..' ,' THE FOUR PHILOSOPHERS. ? Four great philosophers ': Come every ydir ; . . ! ! Teach in the open air, Then disappear. Winter's the Stoic, , So chill and heroic ; He 6its in the mountain breeze, biting and puTe; And when, to bring fear and doubt, " Damp nightly winds arc out, r ; Wraps an old cloak about he can endure. Sprino, at dull hearts to mock, Comes in a farming frock, With garlands and plowshare a lesson doth give; lie sighs through the fields awhile, Turns up the soaking soil, All haste and laughing briskly can live. Summer, with mantle free, Epicurean he, Lolls in the cooling shade, like a tired boy; While blazing suns unkind Leave the stout mower blind, Where faints the mountain wind ho can enjoy. Autumn, when all are done, Paled the nercc-burning sun, Fills well the granaries, where seeds may lie, New-coming years to bless ; Then, in his russet dress, All hope and quietness sweetly can die.
