I asked you to accompany me to day, in hopes that you would help me to drive off a legion of blue devils that have been pur suing me like my shadow for a week or more, but instead of doing so, your rever ential step and wo begone image would give a fellow the horror9 with Mirth standing at his elbow. Come, man, what has gone wrong with you ?" "Nothing, I assure you; I was never in better spirits. Perhaps I was yielding somewhat to the dreamy influence that this soft South wind produces, as it steals so lazily over the prairie grass and sweet ly scented flowers; but let me repeat your question, 'what has gone wrong with you ?' " "Oh, everything! I get no business, and I am too proud to go back to my father, with the tale of my defeat, as he assured me I should one day do.

THE OLD TURNPIKE. We hear no more tho clinging hoot, And the stage coach rattling by; For the iteam.king rules ths traveled world, ..'And the old Pike's left to die. The grass creeps o'er the flinty path, And the stealthy daisies steal, Where once the stage horse, day by day, Lifted his iron heel. Ho more the weary stager dreads The toil of the coming morn; . No more the bustling landlord runs , - At the sound of the echoing horn; For the dut lies still upon the road, And bright-eyed children play, - Where crce the clajtering hoof and wheel Rattled aloDg the way, So more we hear the cracking whip.

There was a deeper shade of sadness on the brow of the first speaker, as she sank languidly, among the pillows of the sofa on which the was reclining, and throwing aside the book slse had been reading,, gave herself up to melancholy reverie. And yet sadness seemed by no means the natural expression of that charming countenance, in which, as in an open volume, all gentle thoughts and wo manly affections were written.

I was waited upon one morning by a lady who appeared in very deep affliction, and who in broken accents asked me if I would meet Dr. , an eminent physi cian, whom I knew well by name, to consult concerning her husband's case.

PRESIDENTS MESSAGE Fellow Citizens of the Senate, and of the House of Jiepresmtatives : Being suddenly called, in the midst of the last session ol Congress, oy a painiui dispensation of Divine Providence, to the responsible station which I now hold, I contented myself with such communica tions to the Legislature as the exigency of the moment seemed to require. 1 he country was shrouded in mourning for the the loss of its venerated Chief Magistrate, and all hearts were penetrated with grief. Neither the time nor the occasion appear ed to require or to justify, on my part, any general expression of political opin ions, or any announcement of the princi ples which would govern me in the dis charge of the duties to the performance of which I had been so unexpectedly called. I trust, therefore, that it may not be deemed inappropriate, if I avail myself of this opportunity of the re-assembling of Congress to make known my sentiments, in a general manner, in regard to the poli cy which oug...
