We allude to the art of poetry. A sunrise is manufactured out of the very same material* and by the same process now at in Homer's ! time. 'Aurora, the 'rosy clouds,' the dew, the lark, and all that kind of thing, are still the ma \ teriil of a poetical sunrise. A storm still 'howls and rave*,' a mountain, to the present time, 'wave* its pines' in different modifications of phraseology, and all the phtnomona of nature are depicted iii the stock epithets and well worn terms which two thousand years a<; > were noted antique — We think that the poets of our young republic ought to sho...

I: ■:: • • . N \ ' -•r Jt Kaenim I 111 '.)...! II >IH«. The London Times of the 13th Nov., has a very able article upon the gross violation of the Treaty of Vienna which has* been perpetrated by the Northern power* of Europe, in the armed occupation of the city of Cracow,— against the ! precise, emphatic, and repeated declarations of that Treaty. be pith of the article lies in its ascription to France of at least acquiescence in this gross violation of a treaty which she was deeply and solemnly pledged, in connection with England, to maintain inviolate. The Times ofthel3tb, says that the recent advices from America, combined with the accounts from different parts of Europe, remove the extreme alarm which once prevailed lest the supply of „.! for th*. ensuing year should be insufficient for the wants of the country. The supply may fall short of that of the most abundant seasous, but its contraction will not be sensibly felt. In every market throughout the kingdom, prices h...

May Showers During the past week, our country has been gladdened by a succession of showers, sufficient to moisten the earth and greatly improve and hasten forward the already promising crops. — These are the annual May rains, we are told, and the last of the season, for beyond this month, no rain falls until the close of Summer, and the setting in of Winter months. Enough has fallen, however, to insure the farmer an abundant re ward for his toil and anxiety, by a rich and plentiful harvest. The country at this time presents a most beautiful appearance. Col. Fremont was expected daily in Monterey at last accounts. We have received late dates from Oregon, but no news of importance. The " Spectator "a semi monthly journal, has commenced its second volume, and justly merits by its ability as a journal and handsome typographical appearance, a liberal support from the patrons of the press on the north-eastern coast of the Pacific.

We visited all their schools, and were highly delighted. They are doing an immense amount of good. I spoke in their great stone church to some three thousand persons, on the Christian sympathy felt in the United States for them — and then told them Commodore Stockton was present, and I hoped he would consent to address them — he was sitting by the side of the king — came forward and spoke for an hour with fervency and effect, on the benefits of the Christian religion, etc. The king and high chief came up at the close, and thanked us for our addresses. | Wo raised two hundred dollars on board our I ship to aid the seamen's chaplain at the Port of !
