ArRIL AND MAY. The last day of April was bright and beautiful, as if to make amends for the <lark and gloomy weather, which we bad during the greater portion of the month. April is said to derive its name from the Latin word Aperio, to open, be cause all nature is then'opened, under the genial influence of the season. During the present year, eighteen hundred and forty, April well deserved the name of the opening month; for the windows of Heav en have all been open, and floods of rain have poured down upon. the hills and plains. .We have read an anonymous poem upon an April day, in an old number of Blackwood's Magazine, which is so appropriate, that we cannot forbear in serting it. April Day.-Axonimdbs. All day the low-hung clouds have dropt Their garnered fuhess down; All day that soft, gray mist hath wrapt - Hill, valley, grove, and town. There has not been a sound to-day To break the calm of nature; Nor motion, I might almost say, Of life, or living creature; Of waving bough, ...

The volume of poems from. which we make the following selection, is just out of press in Boston: THE DEAD. -.-------And hath the memory Of otber days no power upon thy soul? B. B. TATcHre. I love them still-the dead Beneath the grave's dark covert sleeping, Where wild-wood flowers rich sweets are weepn Above their silent bed, So like tdie iifluence memory brings Of friendships, ties unbroken, When heart gave heart pure token, Of unfeigned happiness, The-love-ehained soul indwelling, While heaven-waked thoughts were swelling, - With holy tenderness. Then borne, as on celestial wings, Afar from each dull scene of earth, Each seemed to know a seraph's birth, So deep that pleasure's thrill! What though from men t...

Miscellaneous. Correspondence of the Charleston Courier. WASHINGTON, May 13. The rumor. of changes in the Cabinet have already subsided, though some dis contents, express the opinion thathir. Van Buren's interests would be -promoted by the formation of a newcabinct. Some say that Mr. Niles, of Connecti cut, the late senator from that State, is to take the Post Office Department, but the provailing opinion is that this officer should bd taken from the West. The bankrupt bill was taken up in the Senate, yesterday, and the discussion was commenced upon it. The bill reported by Mr. Clayton, from 'the.majority of the Committee of the Ju diciary, is a voluntary system, applying only to individuals. Mr. Walls' bill from .the minority, embraces both the compul sory and the voluntary systems, and ap plies to artificial as well as natural per ,sous-to banks and all other corporate .bodies. Mr. Wall opened the debate by a spiri ted attack on the majority bill-declaring that it was a partial an...

Miscellaneous. Correspondenceof the Charleston Courier. WASHINGTO, May 21. The Bankrupt bill was again taken np In the Senate, yesterday. and Mr. Dixon, of Rhode island, spoke in favor of the bill for voluntary bankruptcy. We are anxious to bear Mr. Calhoun' opinon as to the constitutiunality-of a law extending to banks. It is probable that a -majority will be found in the Senate for the voluntary system alone. In the House, there was a discusSion up en the preemption bill from the Senate the -question being whether it should be refer -ed to the committee of the whole, or acted on in the House. It was not decided, All these measures in relation to the pub lie lands, occasion much excitement and difficulty.
