Are object I loved in the days of my youth, And only a thought will discover the truth, That 1 love but my Green Mountain Home. When sickness assails us nnd want is in store, When doubt overshadows and j)y is no more, 'Tis then that we utter n sigh, And long for some pitying eye. And think of our home once so gladsome nnd gay, Where the hand of affecii in wiped sorrow away, As of ) ore in my Green Mountain Home. i,. 1:. s. 'I Hi: AMOUNT. The friends of my bosom, I cannot forget them, Through changes and seasons still cherished they are, Rright gems in the crown of nfTjctlon I set them, And its brilliance is dimmed though but one is afar. The absent ! the n'isent 1 their voices sweetly linger In my list'ning car still, I tmy hear not again, And the chords of my spirit which memory fingers, Give back ncalh the pressure a sarrowful strain. When llio shadows of eve are serenely descending, And the last golden beams of the sunset npprar, And day with dim night in soft twilight i blending, Oh, oft to my spirit the absent arc here, When the weary woild vexes tho hushed soul 110 longer, And the silver stars light the still earth with their licame, And fetters of slumber grow firmer and stronger, They glide thiougli the land, the bright land of my 'dreams. They glide o'er my vision nnd bear the sweet token Of friendship that soothed in the days that have flown,. Hut the busy morn break, and the sleep spell is bro ken, The dear phantoms vanish, and I am alone. Where the eager crowd toil in the strife of existence, And throng nTcr throng moves uncnsingly by, I fondly imagine the love il in the distance. Hut they wear the cold faces of strangers when nigh. And my drooping heart sinks in its own desolation, Where loudest nnd deepest life's Imnnlls liny be. And sickens and bleeds in its vain expectation Oflhe dfstnnt, the absent il yearncth to see. O the cold world may meet, and meet only to sever, And affection's torn wreath not a tear-drop miy wet, Hut mi heart when it loves must love onward for ever, It cannot forget, no, it cannot forget.

Oiui of tliu edi tors of tlio St. Louis Reve'illo, liaviii!; l.nt'Iy visiieil Nauvoo, thus spunks of the nuw M01- 11x1 11 tcinplo : " Tho system upon which this tnmplo has been liiiililiiig, is tho exariioit of labor every tenth (I ly from every man who rannnt pur cliasu his exiimplion from tho task with 111 nn uy. It will lie, if ever ftmsilieil, n very im posing looking edifice. It stands in a high and commanding position, a prominent ob ject, riveting thu slrnncer's eye at once j nnd upon near inspection, tlio stylo of nrclntec lecturo is found to ho inoro than commonly attractive, from its singularity. It is like nothing else ; and, unless wo may be allow ed to designate it as the Mormonic ortler, it certainly lias no name ut all, Tlio stone is of excellent quality, quarried in the neigh borhood, and very good mechanics have been at work upon it. Tho massivo caps of the columns are already carved from hugo blocks, isuowing n gigiiiiiii; iuuiiu iiunniii men iiku 1 . 1 1 e 1 1 the broad full moon. Tho columns are made to rest upon crescent moons, sculptured on the face of the stone, resting with the horns down, and with 11 profile of eyes, nose, nnd mouth upon the inner curve. What idea this is meant to convey wo could not learn, though tho impression is irresistible thai the church is built up upon moonshine. orToff, thFregicide. Licttt. Col. Cameron, in his "Personal Adventures in Russia, &c." thus graphically sketches the last sad and melancholy inci dent. in the life of Orl.iff, the Regicide: " lie had married the vniinp, tho beauti ful, nnd amiable Countess Zinowinfi', to whom ho was devotedly and passionately attached, anel in whose society perhaps the short fleet ing period of real happiness he ever knew, was experienced. In the bloom of life and health, nnd within ,1 few months after their union, she was suddenly carried off, nnd laid in her early crave, a stroke of misfor tune so sudden mid severe, that tho mind of her unhappy husband gave way beneath it. ISit one I ro 111 that moment was admitted to his presence, except one or two confiden tial demesnes he ale of what they placed before Inn:, and then either sal or reclined in listless apathv, not a tear or moan escap ing him ; or, passed llio lime in vacantly wanileritig Irom one rich suit ol apartments to another, of his gorgeous and miserable home, as if in search of the lost and loved one, whoso radiant lieanly and angelic sweet ness hail so rociNilly shone, diffusive of every earthly happiness, whete all now was dark ness, gloom and wietcbedness. At length, by the instigation nf ,111 nculo and inteUH'fiit physician, he was prevailed upon to leave St. I'eteisburgh, and proceed upon a lenclhcned coursu of travel ; from which period till upwards of two years after wards, no tidiiiES were liearel of him, beyond his being engaged, in one incessant change of movement, from one rountrv to another.

One niL'lil about litis lime, the chateau of Lzarskoezelo was the scene of one ol those select, gay, and brilliant soirees in which the Lmpros" took so much pleasure. Never had she nppearetl in her best days, though now past the bloom of life, more strikingly handsome, or more replelo with happiness, as she prominaded the. hall-room, her arm resting upon that of a pale, stripling, elegant term, in 11 rich hussar unilorm, upon whose feminine beauty of feature and countenance her eves were fixed with looks of tho deepest and fondest love ami devotion. It was the fair-haired Lanskoi, the one, sole being she ever regarded with true affec tion, whose eailyand untimely death from decline, crushing and overwliplniiug with the deepest affliction the heart of the ambi tious Sovereign, the artful and intriguing ruler ol an equally unscrupulous and unprincipled period, added one more to the examples of, what a tiddli! is woman! Mirth and gladness were at tho highest, tho ball proceeded merrily, when a tall, pow erful, gentlemanly man, on whose noble and dignified features either ilisease or the 11 cutest mental misery, or perhaps both, had impress ed a paleness so livid and wasted, as render ed his countenance scarcely human, sudden ly entered tho room. As if in defiance of court ctiqtittn and derision of tho "orgeotts costumes around him, ho was attired in a suit of the deepest mourning; but on his broad and muscular chest glittered, set in the choicest brilliants, llio insignia nf the most illustrious Orders of Knighthood in Europe. h was Orloff! He strode into the middle of the.assenibly, till he reached the spot where the Empress stood. " You are gay to-night, Kalcrina," he said with a maniac laugh; "how happy every thing seems around you." Then changing his tone, he added, in a voico of thunder and ferocity of manner, that started even the boldest heart present. " How dare you be dancing and enjoying yourselves, and my poor wife not cold in her grave !" Palo and agitated, for several moments, tho Empress vainly struggled lo give utter ance lo the words, " Good God ! Orloff, are you mad ?" " Mad !" ho exclaimed, in that low, deep, stern tone of intense p.is,iu, so frightful to near, as slowly he raised, anil menacingly held his finger towards her. "Mad! aye. and who niado mo sol through whom did I become a murderer and a regicide 1" Catherine now shook so violently, that her favorite was obliged to cast his arm around her waist to sustain her; hut equally alarm ed at the fearful degree of agitation which possessed her, and the llireniciiing ttspeci of Orlofl", while even some ol the boldest vete rans of tho great S.ittvaroff stood bv narulvz- ed and confounded, thu noble youth, placing liimseil ns a shield Delore the bmprcss, nnd resigned her to tho case of her trembling re mnisellcs tl'mnnctir, advanced and confron ted the giant. " Hoy !" said Orloff, contemptuously ex lending an arm, in muscular strength and tirnpnrlioii rivalling that of the Hercules Farnese, and which most certainly would havo crushed 'he elegant form of the favorite to death at a singlo blow, " boy, I wish not to harm you, jet comu not near me, stand aside, nnd let mo onco morn gaze upon unit who has nliko been thu cause of my glory and my guilt," The fierce tones of his deep and powerful voice became wholly changed nnd subdued, as ho altered thu conclusion ot the sentence, sadly and mournfully they struck upon the car. The exciting energy of the moment was past ; ho gazed with pity and affection upon his Sovereign and mistress, as sinking upon un adjoining ottoman, that last resource and relief of the hopelessly miserable, that intonsly wretched, (whoso unulterablo agony of mind has been occasioned by their own guilt, vice, or folly,) in its weakness over came him, and ho wept- tho irnn-nor-etl soldier tho unscrupulous volarv of ambition lho man of bluod, the regicide, wept wept liko a child.

OUR GRANDMOTHER'S MUSIC. 11 V STMNn. ' Thy grandmother,' said undo Toby, ad dressing himself to young Arabella, just Irom London, nnd who wits playing the bat tle of Marengo on thn niano ' thy grand mother, child,' said he, ' used to play on 11 much better instrument than thine. ' ' Indeed,' said Arabella, 1 how could it have been better? you know it is the most fashionable instrument, and it is used by every body that is anything.' ' Your grandmother was something, yet she never saw a piano forte.' 'But what was thu name of this instru ment? had it strings, or was it played bv keys? ' You must give mo lime to rrcollert the name; it was indeed a stiinged instrument, but was played by the hand.' 1 Uy llie hand alone? How vulgar; hut I protest I should like lo see one, and papa shall buy me one when I return to London. Do you think wo can obtain one ?' ' No, you will not find one in London, but doubtless they may bu found in some uf the countty towns.' 1 How many strings had it ? Must one play with both hands f And could one play double bass?' ' 1 know not whether it could play double bass, as you call it ; it was played by both hanils and two strings.' ' Two strings only ? surely you nro jest ing, how could music ho produced by such an instrument, when the piano has two or three hundred ?' Oh, the strings were very long, one about fourteen feel, and the other might ho length ened at pleasure, even fifty or more.' ' What a prodigious deal of room it must take up ; hut no matter, I will have mine in the old hall, nnd pupil may have an addi tion built to il, fur he says 1 shall not want for anything, and so does mama. Were the strings struck with little mallets like the piano, or were they snapped like tho harpsi choid?' ' Like neither of those instruments, ns I recollect ; but it produced a soft kind of humming music, nnd peculiarly ngreeablu to the husband and relations of the performer.' ' Oh, as to pleasing one's husband or rela tions, that is all Dicky, in the Haul ton, you know : but I am determined to have one at any rate. Was il easily learnt, and was il taught by French or Italian masters?' ' Il was easily learnt, but Frenchmen and Italians scarcely dared lo show their heads in our country in those times.' Can you not possibly recollect the name ? How shall wo know what to enquire for?' 1 Yes, I do now remember the name, nnd you must enquire fur a spinning witr.Li.. Singular Traits or Song Birds. A gentleman of my acquaintance had an Amer ican mocking-bird in such health nnd vigor that il was constantly singing or else imita ting the various sounds it heard. In order to try the powers of this bird, the owner pur chased a fine skv lark. When placed in tho same room with tho mocking-bird the song of the former was heard to echo through the house, ns if it were chanting "on fluttering wing" its well known welcome lo tho rising sun. The mocking-bird was silent for some time, but at last burst forth in the strains of tho "trrial songster," but louder and clearer, as if mounting and stretching its wings to wards heaven. The lark was silent from that moment, nor was a joyous nolo ever heard afterwards. Willing tn test the pow ers of the mocking-bird still further, nn unu sual largo prico was given fur a black-bird, celebrated for lis vocal powers. It was placed in the same room with the mocking- bird. Earlv on the second morning its song was resumed, nnd its charming notes were warbled forth with all the sweetness and modulations which may be heaid in its native "thorny brakes." Tho morking-hiul listen ed, and was silent fur a time ; then all at once its notes wero heard to issue forth, but sweeter and louder than those nf tho wood land sot gster. Tho poor black-bird heard them, felt that it was conquered, remained silent, drooped, pined anil died. From the above facts emulation would seem lo ho one of the exciting causes of the songs of the birds. When their powers aro excelled, they appear to feel the disgrace of being ounquer ed, and to lose all inclination to renew their former effort. A Case. A few days since a man went into tho Apothecary's shop of Mr. John Itiirlr in rlielseii nskinir for linlf an nnnrn nf I rulslun. Mr Itiirk not heinir liloncol Willi his looks, interrogated hint as to the use he intended to maku of it, and was told it was to kill rats. Tho Apothecary then gave him half an ounce of medicine, and thu man was seen to cat it ns ho walked from tho shop, and before ho reached his home had thrown the paper away. On reaching hemic ho ttrld his wifu ho was unwell, and laid down on tho bed. Soon after, being attacked with pain ful symptoms, ho told his wife, he was going lo die, and on being asked why ho thought , . , 1 1 il,. . so, lie sum no uau lasen nan an ounce 01 arsenic, and that il was all over with him ; that it would ho no use to elo any thing fur him as ho must die. His frighleneel wife ran for a physician, who was quickly in atten dance, and who after administering a pow erful emetic, which lit) happened to have by htm, ran oil to Die Apothecary lo know bo.v he camo lo sell arsenic to such a man. Hero ho was informed, that tho supposed arsonic was nothing inoro than cream or tar tar, which the Apothecary had given him to prevent his going elsewhere, where he might nrocuro the real nrlicle of which ho was in search. Tho cream of tartar operated, of course, very powerlully j but (ho man per sisted in the opinion that ho had taken arse nic, and that he must die. This may servo as another caution to Apothecaries, hot to sell poison to any person whom they do not know. Mr. buck s surewaness saved the nun's life. Boston Transcript, Prom the Middletiury Galaxy. A L ANSON ST. CLAIR, Has been about this region some time en gaged in promoting tho caixo ol third parly ism, alias, Lncofocoisir. From information which reached our ears of his egregious per versions of tho truth, in relation lo the sen timents and policy of the Whig party, nnd the grarious and wily manner In wbiih he attempted lo entrap public sentiment in oilier rcsperts, we felt that duty as 11 whig editor, demanded eiurnoliro ofn man whose name otherwise wo should not have deigned' lo place in our columns. This excited the ire of this Reverend individual, and on com mencement day, vt'i; found ('handbill posted throughout the town, charging us with "ijitih bUng, misrcpn.srntalion and fahrhtiod." The same abusive course he has since pur sued by publications in the Voire of Free dom, mul tho Green Mountain Freeman, berating us most .soundly fur styling him a hr.-izen-f iced deceiver, rt cetera, and chal lenging us, anil in our default, the Hon. S. S. Phelps, and tho Hon.

All we have said in our paper, it j relation to this man, wo believe to 'in wealth and greatness; all t ii is they mo.t bo true.

Happily,. in rola- linn to this chaige, we have tho most posi tivn and direct proof at hand. What St. Clair himself regards the most untruthful and groundless charge of all others being proved, we shall withhold evidence upon another point, until a inoro convenient oc casion shall present itself. After petusiiig the carel from Mr. Cobb, we would ask who is guilty of falsehood ? A CARD. Mr. Bell Sir Injustice to myself I claim a 1 fmM "Pncc "iir columns in vindication nf the statement made to you by me, with regard to a conversation between myself and one llev. A. St. Clair, who lias of late been endeavoring to enlighten the good people of Middlehury, on the subject nf H,l party politics. The article in question, as published in your paper, commenced inns : " line lie iror.w it To show what reliance is to bo placed nn St, Clair, since ho has come to town, he has declared that in Vermont ho is a Loco, and in New Hampshire he is a Whig." Now the above is true to a letter, and I must confess I was astonished when I learned that he denied ever hiving made the statement. Hut I niut own that notwithstanding the zig zag course nf argument tint this Mr. St. Clair ued 111 his conversation with 1110 and the unan itnous opinion 01 a,i wtio had ever been acniiam. ted with him that his word was a kind nf doubt. ful commodity, especially in these davs of se cession and Comc-o'jt-ism, I say notwithstand ing all this I did not suppose that he would deny what he hid said hut a few days before unless be has taken up the old adage that "all things are fair in Politics," I could hardly believe my own eyes when I read Irs denial of the above statement, published in the (Jreen Mountain Freeman, anel also the Voice of Freedom. Mr. St. Clair says that the ronversilimi lasled some time, so that there was little room for apprehension." Very well; I agree with him on this point, for when a"er 1 nm euargeu mm with tavoring the Lnro foco pirty, he replied that he was ,1 Loco in Vermont, but in New Hampshire lie was a Whig. 1 enquired why tin? change 111 different states, he answered that " be always went with tho minority." Now, Mr. Editor, far be it from me to entertain tho least desire tn he drawn into a newspaper controversy with Mr. St. Clair, or any other person, but a duty tn myself and the public, demands when a public, teacher, a minister of the gospel declares that he is prac tising this Cbiiii"Ieoii.liko rnurse tn accomplish pirty end--, that the public, should bo put in pos. sessiun of the fact. Yours truly, J. Coeb, Jr. Middlebury, lug. la, 1611. lS'lJXT GOVERNOR. Since the opening of the present political campaign, notwithstanding the unpiralled cal umnies upon .nr. ijiay, not a worn 01 scandal wnrihy of notice has been uttered against the Whig candidate lor (inventor by our opponents. In relation tn him the tongue nf slander has been hushed. Not even Lien Focoism, so ingenious in such things, can affix a stigma upon hl char acter either m public or private life. His abili ties tn discharge the duties of Chief Magistrate aro unbounded As a politician ho has ever been an nut and nut Whig. In Congress he showed himself an able anil industrious and ar dent advocate of protection, distribution, and all those principles nf national policy which are combined in tho Whig cause. With scarcely an exception every true Whig in Vermont will vote for Williau Slaps for (lovornnr. No Whig Abolitionist ran consistently refuse tn do so. 11 there is any ono thing for which Mr. Slade during his long public, career Ins labored more earnestly and successfully, anil endured more abundant contumely' and reproach, it is in the noble cause nf genuine Abolitionism. No one hi' been, oris this moment more ardently devoted lo the cause of emancipation. And vet because ho does not follow in the track of rer tain self-appointed guardians of tho Abolition cause, he, together with J. Q. Adams, Seward, Cassius ,M. Clay, (inklings, and ,1 host of such men aro denounced by the Third party press as traitors, anu in no s-ncKon einwn, crushed and ev terminated. Yes, these pure spotless mush room philanthropists who havo so suddenly bo gan lo swarm about us. now imnnilentlc do nounced these great pioneers of thn anti.slaverv cause, because thny nre unwilling In pull down tho pillars of thn Constitution and elissolvo the Union, In the vain hope of thereby striking off 1110 HiacKics irom ttiree millions of slaves at the South. Mr. Slade will never go to sii,-h mon. strous extremifios to accomplish tho abolition of slavery which may and will be accomplished by peaceabl me.itn. Ha rusorts tn the poivor of trulli.is rnnro efil'Cluril than political nrganizatbn to compel men to act.

Anil tn prevent this baleful re. suit, be would sustain Henry Clay. Under any combination of circumstances: which can exist Henry Clay will stretch forth llio arm of opposition to annexation. We there, fore i-all upon all Whigs, anil all Whig Aboli. tioiii.ls to go for Mr. Hlade. Can true nnlight ened Abolitioni-is throw aside a man like Wrr, mam St.Ann, In follow the mock philanthropist who are now practicing their arts of duplicity among us 1 CAN'T VOIT. FOR TIBNKY CLAY. There are many Whig Abolitionists who ail mire the splendid talon's of .Mr. ('lav, who con cede tn bun the highest acquirements as a statesman, and the inirst Noble nsp;ringH as a piiriotand friend of human freedom nt-large, and who wish and even almost pray to heaven tint be might he olcrtcd I'resulen of tin Uni te I R'ntes. and declare they eantint vote for hint because ho is a shveholeier. Tell them that the policy which Mr. Clay and the party with which he acts, is the only policy tinder which the nonplo can thrive and the country advance accomplishment of tins n"lartoiis scheme, a sti they Imitate, but at Icngllt with oreat 10- luctanro refuse In vote for Mr. Clay, herau.e he is a slaveholder. Again insist that although a slaveholder from necessity, as living in .-. slaveholding State, where the cause of hummi ly demands he should retain his slaves rather than turn them adrift upon the cold charities 1 f the world, that such was his love ofimpartia' freedom that in tho very commencement of h ' political career, at a great sacrifice of his pop 1. larity lie boldly advocated the cause nt eman pntion in Kentucky, and has over since done wherever it could be accomplished with safe lo the white population, and has ever taken hi;; and holy ground in all practical measures f. -relieving the country from wlut he has himse f declared the great moi-f.l and political evil 1 ' slavery, antl by breasting himself against annex ation, is doing the work of Abolitionists and ex ercising a giant power to give it efficacy, and success to their cause, yet they cannot vote fur for a slaveholder. But suppose such scrupulous abolitionists should cither withhold their votes from Mr. Clay, or vote for Mr. Birney, whoso sticcesi even the most sanguine of them could not Inoe for, and suppose the slaveholder's candidate Mr. Folk should consequently he elected, protection should be abandoned, all the great interests of the country ruined, Texas should bo annexed, and slavery strengthened and perpetuated, what plea could they urge bclore the throne nt the Atmb.Iite for the mischief tbev had brought I uooii "thii. heaven-favored nation ! It could not be ignorance, for they know full well tho fatal consequences nf their course; nor could they exculpate themselves nn the ground that they were prohibited fri in doing evil that good might come. The act itself was the most evil thing they could have done. It would hae been a viedatioi of their most sacred duties as citizens of tin last of the republics. It would be a base treach ery to the commonwealth, as well as a foul be trayal of the future hopes of three millions r' the' unhappy race in whose favor they pretct' to raise the war cry of third party abolition. Besides, this maxim has already been disci ded in practice by tliiru party men Irom u-hnii it comes with a vory poor grace. Are they m,' constantly insislieg that a runaway slave may lake a boat or K horse and steal his living, tu en able him tn regain his freedom ! These cons? . entions men say further, they will do right a- ' leave the results nf tl.eir actions with Onl. Bu suppose they elo what is palpably wrong, lunv dire they look for the approving smiles of the Almighty J Hut, say our mistaken friends, ir wo vote rnr a slaveholder we justify slaveholding. Whit sublimated moraliiv is this 7 Such casuistry is a elisgrare to an intelligent mind. If we vote for a candidate who will sustain such a policy pa weeleeni expedient, elo uc sanction his vices in either respects, which wo choose to overlook for the sake of those eiuahlicatinns which lit him for our purposes? If so; show us the man so wholly unimpeachable that the peoplo can con. scientiouslv vote for him. Wo therefore call upon all sincere Abolition ists to go forward in the noble cause in which they are embarked by the use of the only prac ticable means in tneir power tor its acomphsli mcnt. Throw your weight into the scale of freedom. Give vour votes for men who can be elected, and if elected will present an insur mountable barrier against the further extension nf the odious institution. We do not adopt the jcsuistical maxim that the end justifies tho means. Hut when until are righteous, go ahem!. The march of froeelom is onward. There aro causes in energetic, operation which will event- ua'ly prostrate the bloody Moloch of Slavery Thn triumph of the Whig party, which is' the only true Abolition pirty, is at hand. They aro fighting the battle of freedom to both tho whito man and the black. I hcv stand like a tall cliff beating back thn black surges of Polk- ism, alaiery and Annexation, with which the demagogues of the South and their allies, llie Third parly zealots nf the North, aro iinron. scioiisiy deluging the land. I he next election is to delerininn thu fate nf Slavery in the Union. Prevent the expansion of Slavery, confine it to its present limits and its final doom is sealed. MidJUbury Galaxy. Punctuation.
