f _he Mourner a la Mode." • ■■ I saw her last njght ift ft "party, r ——J (The elegant party at Mead's,) And looking remarkably hearty For a widow so yourig in her weeds; Yet I know she was suffering sorrow Too deep for the tongue to express— ' Or why had she chosen to borrow i So.much from the language of d_ess ? Her shawl was a? gable as night: I And her gloves were as dark as her shawl; And her jewels—that flashed in the light— ' Were black as a funeral pall! Her robe had the hue of tho rest (How nicely it fitted her shape !) And the grief that was heaving her-breast Boiled over in billows of crape! What tears of vicarious woe, I That else might have sullied her face, Were kindly permitted to flow In ripples of ebony lace! i While even her fan, in its play, Had quite a lugubrious scope, And seemed to be waving away The ghost of the angel of Hope! Yet rich as the robes of a queen Was the sombre apparel she wore, I'm certain I never had seen Such a sumptous sorrow before; And I coul...

a word, we assert that the pulpit of the South, so far as we know, is not liable to the charge of either disloyalty or sedition against the Govern ment of the United States. On the contrary, we are conscious of having adhered strictly and constantly to our ecclesias tical functions, and have studiously avoided all complication of our pulpits with the political issues of the day. This is our testimony and our record, and we calmly submit the declaration thereof to the world.

A Literary Curiosity. The night has come, but not too soon; Westward the course of empire takes its way; Ye banks and braes of Bonnie Doon ! Blue spirits and white, black spirits and grey. Rocked in the cradle of the deep, Old Caspar's work was done; Piping on hollow reeds to his pent sheep, Charge, Chester, charge! On, Stanley, on !J There was a sound of revelry by night, On Linden when the sun was low; A voice replied far up the height, Tall oaks from little acorns grow. What if a little rain should say, I have not loved the world nor the world me; Ah! well a day! Woodman, spare that tree! My heart leaps up with joy to see A primrose by the water's brim; Zaccneus he did climb the tree ; Few of our youth could cope with him. The prayer of Ajax was for light— The light that never was on sea or shore. Pudding and beef make Brittons fight Never more! Under a spreading chestnut tree, For hours the either sat, I and my Annabel Lee ; A mon's a mon for a' that. Truth crushed to the earth ...

You Naughty ! Haughty Men!! Composed for and Sung by Miss Milly Cavendish, in the Black Crook. I will never more deceive you, or of happiness bereave you, But I' 11 die a maid to grieve you, oh 1 you naugh ty men! You may talk of love, and, sighing, say for us you're nearly dying; All the while you know you're tryingto deceive, you naughty men; You may talk of love, and, sighing, say for us you're nearly dying.

When you want a kiss or favor, you put on your best behavior, And your looks of kindness savor, oh! you naughty, naughty men, Of love you set us dreaming, and when with hope we're teeming, We find that you are but scheming, you naugh ty, naughty men. If a fortune we inherit, you see in us every merit, And declare Ave're girls of spirit, oh! you naugh ty, naughty men; But too often, matrimony is a mere matter of money; We get bitters 'stead of honey, from you naugh ty, naughty men.

For the Spectator. A Lovyer _ Lament. BY PHIFTY-SIKS. The night is dark and dreary, dad, My heart is sick and sore; My life is awful weary, dad, And I can smile no more. Your darling son is jilted, dad, By one he used to love; I long for to be kilted, dad, And go to rest above. Sal says she does despise me, dad, It makes me mighty sick ; She does not rightly prize me, dad, And loves some other brick. Because she won't marry me, dad, I sorter take it hard ; You will have to bury me, dad, In yonder green church-yard. But dyin' isn't funny, dad, To leave a lifeless trunk ; Give me a little money, dad, To take me on a drunk. A Sad Tale. A damsel sat beside the sea— A damsel sadly weeping; Upon her face no signs of glee In joyous rapture creeping. In silence did she weep alone; No happiness could banish The plaintive air and gentle moan Not for awhile could vanish. No hunter fierce had slain her fawn That roams in this green valley; Then why does that look, sad and wan, Upon her features...
