She looked likc^nu who had suffered much, und the sorrowful music seemed her own appropriate voice. A little; girl clung to her scanty garments as if afraid a.11 vlungs but her mother. As I looked on them, a young lady of pleasing countenance opened tdo window, and began to sing like a bird, in keeping with the street organ. The other young girls came and leaned on her hhouldcr, und slil) she sang on. Blowing on her gentle heart. It was evidently the hjiontaneous gunli of human love and *<ympithy.

A Jewel of a Letter writer.—The Louisville Journal thus serves up one of his contemporaries m-Cincinnati. " He is the rascal,, who, a few years ago acted astlic Cincinnati correspondent of the Louisville Jour' nal and Perm's Louisville Adrcrtiser, writing Whig letters fur the one, and Locofbco letters for for the other. In one case the scoundrel wrote to* the Journal that a certain stale election* wouTcS go iu favor of the Whig?, and at the same time wrote to the Advertiser that it would certainly go* for Ihe Democrats; an J, after the election was over, he wrote to the Journal thai it actually had gone for the Whigs, and at the same time to the Advertiser that it actually had gone for the Democrats!!

Effects of Slavery.—The Charleston Mercury in an article headed "The Ruin of the Slaveholder and the Slave," has the following information : 11 The thirteen original States of the Union com. prised on area of 371,121 square miles, of which the six Slave Slates contained 226,000, or 22 37tlis of the whole, und the non-SUvchoMing Slates 145,12-1, or 15-17ths. Now, the entire extent of our common country is 2,920,000 square miles, of which the Sl.ive Slstc possess 8G0,0O0, not quite ll-37tha; being a growth in ihc latter of fourteen times their original size, while in the same period of time the Slave States have not quadrupled theirs." Tho difference of increase in population and wealth has been still greater than that of territory. What better argument could be offered than this, of the superior advantages of free over slave labor.?

Ecil'asimitv.— Everyone who baa read ihc story of the philosopher who, when his dog Diamond had destroyed the work of years, merely told ihc quadruped that he didn't know the mischief he had done; which no doubt was true; and perhaps the li I tic rascal knew as much of philosophy as he did of the speech made to him on the occasion. Such instances of equanimity are rare. Probably but one other case has transpired since then, and this was when the cat roiiofT with Mrs. Partington's steak, which she had just prepared for dinnci. When informed of it by her niece, the old hdy smiled as she spoke—"That cat always was agreeable to my cooking; some people's vittlcs she wouldn't touch; we must put ourselves on a regi. menl to-day, Lucy."

Tiie flour from the new wheat is said lo be very bupcrior this year, from the fact that ihe unexampled demand for breadblmTd during the last year has thrown into market the surplus on hand, so tlmt Hie usual custom of mixing oi'd wilh new wheat, grinding it together and sending it to market us new flour, it is largely diminished if not entirely prevented.
