POETRY. From the Louisville Journal, "I THINK OF THEE." BT OEORflB IV. FRENTICK. I think of thee, When orient beams the morn display, Ami nature brightens with the day, And leaf and flower of modest hue Glisten with the morning dew I think of thee ! Bright spirit of my destiny- I think of thee ! I think of thee When twilight dews are falling fast, And evening shades the sky o'ercast W hen vesper music floats along And echo answers to the song I think of thee ! Bright spirit of my destiny I think ot thee ! I think of thee ! When the first beam of Cynthia bright Illumes the dark expanse of night, And brings into the home sick mind All that I loved and left behind, I think of thee ! Bright spirit of my destiny I think of thee ! I think of thee When 1 mely midnight comes apace And draws his veil o'er Nature's face, When darkness lingers on the hill And tired Nature slumbers still I think of thee ! Bright spirit of mv destiny I think of thee ! I think of thee Of me thou art another part,...

V From the Pacific Monitor. Written for an Album. To write, or not to write, that is the question! Whether 'tis better for a man, to suffer The requisitions of a lovely woman; Or to take pen against a sea of leadings' And by composing, end them! To muse; to write, No more; And by that writingsay we end, Solicitations, and a thousand other ills That man is heir to, 'tis a consummation Devoutly to be wished. To muse; to write; To write ! perchance to fail aye, there's the rub; For in that failure what disgrace may come. When we have scribbled off our wretched scrawl, Must make us pause : For who would bear the smiles end jeers of men, The critic's eye. the ladb's obloquy. The pangs of ridicule, the silent sneer, The suppress'd titter, and the jests That would ensue his bold and vain attempt. When he himself might his quietus make With a mere Copy ! who would censures bear, And groan and writhe beneath vile criticism, Out for the dread of being called a dunce; That dreadful name; an ap...

POETRY. SPRING N. P. Willis. The Spring is here the delicate-footed May, With its slight lingers lull oi leaves ana flowers, And with it comes a thirst to be away, Washing in wood-paths its voluptuous hours, A feeling that is like a sense of wings, Restless to soar above these perishing things. We pass out from the city's feverish hum, To find refreshment in the silent woods; And nature that is beautiful and dumb, T ibo a rnrA elorn nnnn the TllllseS broods. Yet even there, a restless thought will steal, . .. - i i . . .-ii . r.-i To teach tne inaoieni nean u sun must icei Stranire that audible stillness of the noon, The waters tripping with their silver feet, The tuminir to the lurnt of leaves in June, And the light whisper as their edges meet, Strange that they nil not, with their tran quil tone One spirit, walking in their midst alone. There's no contentment in a world like this, Save in forgetting the immortal dream: We may not caze upon the stars of bliss, That thro' the clouds...

) POETRY. From the London Literary Gazette. USE OF PHRENOLOGY. Away with all doubt and misgiving, Now lovers trust woo by the book There's an end to all trick and devicing, No man can be caught by a look. Bright eyes or a love breeding dimple No longer their witchery fling: That lover indeed must be simple Who yields to so silly a thing. No more need we fly the bright glances Whence cupid shot arrows of yore: To skulls let us limit our fancies, And love by the bumps we explor! Oh now we can tell in a minute What fate will be ours when we wed; The heart has no passion within it That is not engraved on the head. The first time I studied the science With Jane and I cannot tell how, Twas not till the eve of alliance I caught the first glimps of ber brow. Casualty finely expanding, The largest I happened to see ; Such argument's fur too commanding Thought I to be practised on me. Then Nancy came next, and each feature As mild as an angel's appears; I ventured, the sweet little creature, ...

FOB. THE JOURNAL. . " Out of thine own month will I condemn thee." Sir. Ediloi I have read with considera ble surprise the communication of "Junius" in reply to my remarks in the Journal of the 25th April last; not suipriscd at his numerous misrepresentations and misstatements, but at the lone, slide, and object of it. I anneal to vou Mr. Editor, and to every reader of your paper, to bear witness that every line I have written for it has been in reply to "attacks," (whether pitiful" or otherwise, 1 leave for the public to judge) on the whigs, whig party, and whig measures, and tiiat in every instance 1 have carefully abstained from any thing like a per sonal application of my remarks, but have confined them to the subject matter of your correspondents, and to their assumed names, .Such a course I considered not only eminent ly proper in itself, but as due to your courtesy in extending the use of your columns for the discussion oi queslions of public interest.

Fourteen days Later from . Europe. The Great Western arrived at New York on the 3d inst, after a passage of 18 days. At a cabinet council on the 8th of April, Che English government authorized reprisals on Chinese commerce. England, it is said, has commenced hostile operations on the Sicilies. The French have monopolized the Sulphur trade, to the injury of English commerce. 'I here may be burning of sulphur and sa!t-petre between France and England in consequence of it. The British government are evidently in tent on pushing hostilities against China, and though but in a small majority when their policy was discussed in the House of Com mons, the subject was evidently treated as a party question and not a political one.

POETRY. THE WITHERED FLOWERS. I knew they would perish! Those beautiful flowers! As the hopes that we cherish In youth's sunny bowers I knew they'd be faded! Though with fond gentle care Their bright leaves were shaded, Decay was still there. So all that is brightest Ever first fades away, And the joys that leap lightest The earliest decay. -The heart that was nearest The widest will rve, And the friend that was dearest The first cease to love. And the purest, the noblest, The loveliest we know Are ever the surest, The soonest, to go, The bird that sings sweetest, The flower most pure, In their beauty are fleetest, In their fate the most sure. Yet still though thy flowers Are withered and cone. They will live like some hours In memory alone. In that hallow'd shrine only Sleep things we would cherish, Pure, priceless, loved, lonely, They never can perish. Then I'll mourn ye no more Ye pale leaves that are shed, Though your brightness is o'er, Your perfume is not fled; And like thine ...

AMOS KENDALL'S RESIGNATION. To Tii Frauc Finding it impossible, in consequence of enfeebled health. to perform thn duties of Postmaster General in a satis factory manner, I have resigned that office, to take effect as soon as m y successor can he appointed. Not having been fortunate enough to accu mulate wealth in a public office, I am under the necessity, of resorting to such private employment as is suited to my strength and condition, for the purpose of meeting the current expenses of a considerable family. A few hours each day devoted to the pen. leaving an abundance of time for relaxation and exercise, 1 have found by experience, from tbe excitement of composition, to be rather conducive to health than injurious; and this is the occupation, above oil others, most agreeable to my taste and my present inclination.
