Woman. BT WILLIAM LSOUCTT. No star in yonder sky that thine* Can light like woman's eye impart ; The earth holds not in all its mines, A gem bo rich as woman's heart , Her voice is like the music sweet Poured out from airy harp alone ; Like that when storms more loudly beat, It yields a clearer, richer tone.

I had been recommended to settle in this strange settlement by a friend, who clearly proved to me that it would be a good opening, from the fact that a portion, and a good portion, too, of the year, was devoted to frolics of various kinds, and at such times there was a universal gouging out of eyes, pulling of hair, and best of all, a breaking oft' and knocking out of teeth.

[From the Pacific Now- ] Car!ylc&amp;gt; Hfew Literary luiat«&amp;gt;rpri«&amp;lt;&amp;gt;. Mr. Carlyle has again appeared before the English public in the ti st of a series of papers^ which, undor the ominous name of ! Latter Day Pamphlets, 1 are to appear monthly. He takes as his subject 'The Present Time,' which he characterises as " days of endless calamity, disruption, dislocation, confusion worse confounded," and declares his persuasion that if they be not also days of endless hope, " then they are days of utter despair."' The revolutionary attempts of past years are examined and condemned as worthless — incapable of effecting any amelioration of the condition of mankind. At democracy he launches many scathing bolts : universal suffrage, vote by ballot, arid all the several parts that go to make up the perfect machine of representative governments, 'can answer no other end than to.make the phantasm-governors and governed go harmoniously together to perdition." ...
