From the German af Goethe.
A rose" that bloom'd the ro.id-side by
Caught a young vigraut's wanton eye;
The child was gay the morn was clear
He saw the blooming flower.
"My little rose my rose-bud dear!
My rose that blooms tnc road -side near!
The child esclaim'd. "My hands shill dare
Thee rose from oft" the stem to tear;"
The rose replied. "If I have need
My thorns shall make-thy finders bleed
Thy rash design give o'er."
My little rose my rose-bud dear!
My rose thai blooms the road-side near! '
Regardless ef its thorny spray
The child would tear tiie rose away;
The rose bewail'd with sob and sigh
But all in van no hup was nigh
To quell the urchin's power.
My little rose my rose bud-dear!
Mvrese that bloom'd . c road-side near!
The following beautiful epitaph was written by Bin Johnson
upon the celebrated Mary Countess Pembroke: '
"Underneath this marble hearse
Lies the subject of all verse;
Sidney's sister Pembroke's mother
Death! ere thou hast slain another
Fair and wise and good as she
Time shall throw his dart at thee."
Where true religion has prevented one crime

Of every description t neatly

In death itself there can be nothing terrible for the act of death

f them justly formidable even to the bravest; but to various are
the modesaf geing out of the world that io be born may have been
a more painful tiling than to die and to live may prove a more
troublesome thing than either. r
If some persons were to besto-.v one half of their fortune in lear.

out. lie that spends two iortunes ana permuting nimseit to be
twice ruined dies at last a beggar deserved no commisseration.
He has gained neither experience from trial nor repentance from
reprieve. He has been all his life abusing fortune without enjoy
ing her and purchasing wisdom without possessing her.
Persecutors on the score of religion have in general been the
foulest of hypocrites and their burning zeal has too often been
lighted up' at the altar of worldly ambition. Bat suppose we ad-
mit that persecution may in some solitary cases have arisen from
motives that are pure; the glory of God and the salvation of men.
But here again the purity of the motive is most wofully eclipsed by
gross absurdity of the means. For the persecutor must begin by
breaking many fundamental laws of his master in t order to com-
mence his operations in his favor; thus asserting by deeds if not
by words that the intrinsic excellence of the code of oir Saviour
is sufficient for its own preservation. But thus it is that even the
shjttrest persecutors defends the cause of his master. He show's
hnove of man by breaking his cardinal laws; he then seeks to glo-
rify a God of mercy by worshiping him. as a Moloch who delights
in human sacrifices; and lastly he shows his love of his neighbor
by roasting his body for the good of his soul. But can a dark-
ness which is intellectual be done away by a fire which is materi.
al? or is jt absolutely necessary to make a faggot of a man's bo-
dy border to enlighten his mind?

A calm follows a storm and the city is quiet after the shock
of the Presidents shooting which I yesterday detailed. Not much
has transpired in relation to it which can be relied on with the ex-
ception of one thing of some interest which may be; and thatis
the singular charge mads by the otd gentleman as to the author-
ship of the business. He charges it upon Poindoxter! At least he
did so at tie time; and the f ici indicates at all events as sir aws
show thn way the wind blows the leading bias of his miad. You
may depend on h he broke out into passionate exclamations on
the matter characterzedly with his own peculiar suavity calling
him "a d d assassin" fcc. I have it from a highly respectable
pei son who heard it and will swear it word for word. You may
make of it what vou please and so ma Poins: I make nmhimr.

la'. general's word at the best will no? bear an inference. Un-
der the excitement of an' occasion of this sort they diserve no no-
tice al all. I hope Poins won't be silly enough ;o prosecuteitfln
as some peot!e intimate or persecute him or pist o"l him even
ao he threatened io do before. As I said before the words shew
nothing butdor.nant hatred; and that every body was aware of it
long ago. The globe you see. has not the hardihood to give cur-
rency to itie dia.tre. Tney dout dare do it. though they'do hate
Poins a gnod deal worse than the d . They 'havethc'insole.-.oc
however to intimate t':at the m in was excite:! l it by the tot.e of
the Senate debates meaning the Pos' Office discussion. They
even designate Calhoun's speech hs sufficient to have produced
the result. A comijiimont to his gennis certainly and more sig-
nificant if not more civil than evor issued from the same source
before- In regard to the charge above referred Jo while I think
ofit I should msnti'jii that it was substantiated that is the fact
of the charge being made last night in presence of a torgc com-
pany in a public ()!?ce . young man had asserted it in strong
term a-.other stepped forward and said "it was false aai v.ho-
ever stated it was ad d liar" adopting appropriately '.he refine-
ment oi the c-jurt di.ilecf. A weger of $20 was propo-.ed as to its
susceptibility of proof. It was accepted; the testimony brought for-
ward on the spot and the company satisfied. The champion of
hie mijesty was reduced to the necessity of the payment on one
hand arid the apology on the other; a!1(l j0 it eudd. Nobody

Well Leigh is chosen you see after all the premature crowing
and s using of the Globe. Great excitement attended the elec-
tion. Richmond was full of strangers and the house galleries
aisles entries and yard crowded almost to suffocation The an-
nunciation of the result produced a treming. The Johbies caught
ihe note. The people without joined in; and in tea minutes tho
town was iu an uproar My informant left them firing cannon die
Leigh is amazingly popu'ar and (deserves to be. There is no
doubt at all that the spring election in Virgtuia will go very strong
fjr the Whigs more so than ever before- There will be however
no nomination jor the Presidency tkis.winter; that you may be sure
of. You have noticed that the Globs is out at last for the Balti-
more convention; and that the time is to be May as I predicteda
foitnight since instead of October. No plainer proof coald .be
had of the dismay of the party in regard to the new movement.
The Richmond Enquirer cannot yet beiieve that White "will suf-
'fer himself to be used up againsl Jackson!" Think of that senti-
ment tor this country and the democracy1. On the other hand a
cunning fellow who writes for a Philadelphia paper from here
Kendall I believe certainly one of his men holds out the bribe
of the vice providency for the Judge if he will back out.. But it
won't do. They may cajole him on one side and curse him outhe
other. Their earnestness itself shows too much to be given up.
Their "speech bewrays" them and the Judge understands it well.
He sees too and so do we all that the convention charm is bro-
ken up. That was to be the great magic circle within which he
who shou d be the nominee would entrench himself "against the
world in arm." But a small matter kindleth a great fire; and a
pin wil' prick a balloon. Alabama has pricked the convention.
The magician turns ghost. The gas rushes broad east. The blad-
der is burst.
Taney still stands as he did. T.

The Senate has been in secret-session and probably in discuss
ion on Taney but he is not yet disposed of. They disposed how.
ever it is understood of man by the name of Fitch heretofore
marshal! of the district of Maryland and now proposed again for
the same place. The difficulty with him was that he has beeri
most disgustingly abusive against the Senate. His slang was a
little too much to swallow and they have just set him aside to get
Previous to the motion of the executive business Mr. Calhoun
called the attention of the Senate to an offensive article ia the Sat-
urday's Glob's which I have already mentioned ascribing as well
as it does the outrage of poor crazy Lawrence to the instigation
of Calhoun's speech! The latter reuestei the clerk to readjtfw
obnoxious paragraph from the desk. It was a hard one to be sure.
