In proportion as man advances in life, and withdraws himself from maternal care, the passions god him-griefdraws tears from him, and gloomy thoughts possess his soul. His companions can no lon ger console him-his mother has not words sufficiently enticing to restore him to virtue. A stronger support becomes necessary to him; lie seeks a Being who will defend him from his own passions -if he find him not, he will perish, for God alone knows the profound myste ries of our hearts. Religious sentiments only prevent our fall. I say more. they elevate us and make...

It is a pen dant to one which appeared originally in the United States Gazette, some vars since. and attracted general attention here and in E.ngland; but especially was it read. applauded and cher ished here. after it received the stamp of the London Court Gazette. That was among the first of Mliss Waterman's productions that re ceived particular attention. and was the means of bringing into public notice, and general ap proval, one whose writings give her a high rank irgh the best female poet.< of the country.

Duane's late pu-'lication, entitled a -Nirrative and Correspondence conce--ing ihe Rieoral of ti Deposites, and occurrences connected thcrewith: P HiLIVLriIA, Nov. 3, i3% I need not fror my general purpose, stop here to coneider, whether the U. :. bank really wa-.s a regulator of thii paper cur rency; and yet, I will brien15 consider that point. To show, that it never did restrain the issue of paper as money, all that is needful is, to state undisputed facts; that, in 1791, there were but three banks; but there are now upwards of sis hundred: and then, duri-ig forty of the intervening forty-six years, the U.

F011 THE ADVE.RTISER. TO E-, The voice of the robin that sings In the grove so sweetly, has flown; No longer around thee it flings, Its music by zephyrs once blown. Yet come! gentle robin again, And rouse the old oak by thy strains, Nor tune the sweet mathi in vain, For Heav'n shall feed thee with grains. My eyes shall gently scan each limb, Of that old oaken tree to find; Perchance, to get a glimpse of him, The sweetest songster of his kind. Vet strike! those tuneful chords once more, And break this silly silence now, My ear and heart will both adore, And pay, with thee, kind fHcav'n, a vow. So sweetly stealing otn my ear, Thy magic music soothes my heart, And bids my passions all to hear, . And wish to act a nobler part. Hark! soul! and ear! and all imy powers! My robin, robin sings once more; In early dew and inorhing showers May he continue ever more. IIERO. From Hood's Comic Annual. A LAY OF REAL LIFE. Some are born with a wooden spoon in their mouth. and some with a golden lad...

THE GREEN ILLS OF MY FATER LAND. The green hills of my father-land In dreams still meet my view, 1 see once more the wave-girt strand The ocean depth of blue The sky-the glorious sky outspread Above their cahr repose The river, o'er its rocky bed Still singing as it flows The stillness of the Sabbath hours, Wtere men go uip to pray The sun-lihti resting on the 1-wers The birds that sing among the bowers, Through all the summer day. Land of my birth!-mine eaily love! Once more thine airs I breathe! I see thy proud hills tower above The greet vales sleep beneath Thy groves, thy rocks, thy murmuring rills, All rise before mine eyes. The dawn of morning on thy hills, Thy gorgeons sun-set skies, Thy forests, firom whose deep recess A thousand streams have birth, Glad'ninig the lonely wilderness, And fillinag the green silentness With melody and mirth. I wonder if my home would seem As lovely as of )ore! I wonder if the mountain s:ream oes siu-ing by the door! And the flowers still bloom ...
