REMEDY I was drooping, I was grieving, O'er life's ills, a hideous train ; All, I said, is but bereaving ; All is loss Vithout a gain! There is not /ne stable blessing For our weak and sinful clay : In the moment of possessing ¦Every joy is snatched away. Suddenly there comes a splendor Richly gushing from the skies; As a maiden, blight yet tender, —Streamed- u pon-iiay- wond eri ng^ey cs

From present indications, it would seem that some sort of an alliance is in progress between the two jioweis.—'The pulpit m certain .sections, has certainly put its fingers very deep into politics 'of late. A New York" writer in one of the morning: papers states that there were no less than nine sermons advertised to be preached in that city on last Sabbath, in reference to the then approaching State election: and among the speakers at a political meeting held in New York last week, we notice the names of two city pastors. Neither of these, however, we arc happy to say, were Old school Presbyterians. It is true that the object ostensibly aimed at was the promotion of temperance—a good cause*, certainly, but in this instance so connected with political parti/anship, that it ^v^ rfnipossiblc for ministers to take a public part without entering the arena of polit...

Illinois Not Sad. The telegraph was a little too fast is announcing the election of an entire anti-Nebraska delegation to Congress from Illinois. On the contrary, the Chicago Times and u-legrapic despatches to the Washington papers assert that Win. A.

tZT^The proceedings on a late criminal trial in Massachusetts, says the Washington Union, have developed the startling fact that the obligations entered into by the know-nothings come in direct conflict with the administration of the law iu courts of justice.—We copied, a few weeks ago, so much of these proceedings from the Lowell Advertiser as shows clearlj r ..the practical workings of their oaths in affecting the credibility or competency of know-nothings as witnesses in court.—When the witness takes the stand he swears that he will state "the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth." When asked the question whither he is a member of a secret order, and as such, bound by an oath, if he answers that he canuot testify without criminating himself nnd subjecting himself to punishment, he is not a competent witness. If he answers that he is such mcmber.and bound by oath, be thereby violates the obligation of that oath, and discreditsJiimself as a witness. In either poi...

On Tuesday last it was consecrated as a burial place for the dead. Without the lease exaggerutioiiTthere is no more lovely spot to be found in Pennsylvania than "Evergreen Cemetery." Standing upon, the summit of the ground, a view is presented to the beholder which, cannot be surpassed, if even equalled.

The Attack on Sevastopol. Latk FouBKiS Nkws.—We have three days' later news from Europe—brought by the steamer Canadian. Intelligence from various sources, giving accounts of the progress of the siege of Subastopol, up to the 29th ulf, had been received, but nothing decisive hud occurred. Admiral llnm.elin says that if the Russians had not closed the* entrance of the harbor of Sebastopol by sinking 4 ships, the allied squadron, after the first fire, could have successfully run in and placed themselves in communication with the land forces, without, probably, a quarter of the loss they have now sustained. The English loss on shipboard was two lieutenants killed and 16 officers wounded : in all, 44 men killed nnd!2GG wounded, and the ships considerably damaged by shot and shells. The Flench loss was 30 killed and 1SG wouniled. On the evening of the 2Gth, the Russians, 8,000 strong, made a sortie from Sebastopol and also from the direction of Balaklava, but were repulsed, 1,000 m...

ArrccnxG Romascb.—The. Whitehall (X. Y.) Chronicle records the death of a young man named Dennis Bryan, from having his legs crushsd by a car, and adds : After his mangled limbs had been amputated his mind aroused to the terrible consciousness that he must die, and he implored the bystanders to "scud for his Lucy." "Where is she ? I must see her before I die—let me f-ee her and I can die. in peace," were his frequent ejaculations and entreaties. His parents were asked what he meant—if he was marriud — to which they replied that he was not, and that they knew nothing of the person he named as "bis Lucy." After his death it came to light that he had been married about three months ton lady belonging to one of the first families in Larisinbnrgh.

Oh ! yes, let the Legislature of the State be prostituted to the advancement of a secret oath bound association, and we will have a pretty tune of it bv-and-by. Let them control the Judiciary—the jury box—the pulpit, and the bar, as well as the hulls of legislation, and we will have a country lhat would make the bones of the Revolutionary sires rattle in their graves. Go ' on, gentlemen. The people are not taxed near enough, in your judgment. Give us another sample or two. Such as they have now in Philadelphia would not be bad. Lay it on thick.

"Diddled." . "The Pittsburg " Jmeriean is ont decidedly in favor of abolishing the CiUial Board. No doubt of it. All the Whig papers will follow suit as .soon as they think the Democratic portion of the K; N's. can be reconciled to the cheat. The bargain between the Whig and Democratic K.

Now abolish the Canal Boaid, ami appoint Whig superintendents, and the misled Democrats are linally 'diddled.'". We supposed some such game as is foreshadowed in the above extract would be play-L'd by the '"Know Nothings." Whigs who have been prating for months in favor of the sale of tho public works have changed their lune, and go in now for the abolition of the Canal iSonrd ! Of course.
