Death. A fettered spirit dreading to be free ! Sight passing strange ! a soul that hugs its chains, And hates to quit earth's tremblings, and its pains. And loves the cloud that wraps in mystery All that is worth the knowing. Can it be, Since through death only life supremely reigns, That man, who here unceasingly complains,: Dreads to cast off his dull mortality T Death openeth life ! and yet he fears to die ! What! would the prisoner seeing from afar The dim light glimmering through his prison bar, Not turn upon it a much longing eve? And with the gates wide open would he sav, I love this gloom, and. will not come away " ? i ¦

For the Lancaster Intelligencer. Electing- tbe Judges. . I heard it asked, in reply to the article on the " Judiciary " ia your paper of the 18th ultimo: " What can the people, who are not lawyers, know about who ia fit to be a Judge?" It is this very notion of incapacity, so strongly pressed against the Democracy in former times, that has so long prevented a change to a more popular form of selecting the Judges, or even much public inquiry on the subject; but it did not satisfy the common judgment. We are all more or less the slaves of habit, guided by accustomed modes of thinking, which we ¦mistake for reason. The above truism, that lawyers alone are fit to recommend or select Judges, is one of those modeB of thought forced upon us on trust. The question in government is not, who knows best, but who will decide or select with'judgmen and honesty combined? In fine, who is most likely to do right 1 All our notions of freedom end in trusting no one man, or set of men, to do tha...

William C. Tobey and his "North i American." •Among the many brave spiritsj^who are now serving thejr country in the city of gold, of idols, and of human hecatombs, in the city of the reckless Cor' tez and of the infatuated Moxtezcma, we know of none more deserving of gratitude and praise than William C. Tobey, the poet and the printer. Tobet was at various times associated with leading ' journals in this State, as assistant editor and correspondent, and by the point and vigor of his writings had gained deserved popularity. Now—and we can scarcely expand our minds to the realization of the grave fact—the very paths which three centuries ago were trodden by Cohtez are trodden by William C. Toner and kindred spirits, who, if they present strange contrasts, arc not less heroic and not less confident in- the infallible fortune of their cause thnn was the far-famwl rV»i- auestador. Tobet has not, it is true, participated in any of the sanguinary battles which have signalized the ...

r Proceedings of Congress. Talliyrakd was once asked, whether the French deputies, who were then in session, had passed any thing of importance? " Passed T replied the veteran wit,," they have passed withing a few days of sixteen tittles, and I can imagine nothing of higher importance to the public than time.'" If the two branches of Congress do not take excellent care. they will stand in danger of subjecting themselves to the same bitter sarcasm. They have now passed overtwo months of precious time, and have transacted none of the urgent" business of the country. We know of no more crying evil, under our institutions, than the miserable and often culpable manner in which the most important measures are delayed by Congress. However urgent and even threatening the public exigencies, or how ruinous soever the delay, it appears utterly impossible to inspire tfiSb body .with a due degree of energy or promptitude. Reinforcements are needed in Mexico, and in every quarter the peop...

Our reply to all such fault-finders is: What is a Constitution good for, whose principles will not bear the test of examination—or what is anewspaper good for, whose columns are closed to those, who seek to point out to the people the errors and defects in the government, under which they live 1 We cannot conceive how any improvement, either in the social or political condition of mankind, could ever have taken place, if the press had not first lent its powerful aid in the dissemination of useful and correct doctrine.
