How 1 laushcd ns 1 lay concealed from sight, For m-iny n countless hour, At the childish boast ol human might, Add tho pride of human power. When I saw on army upon the Und, A navy upon the seas. Creeping along n snaiMikc band, Or wailing the wayward brcezct When I marked lho peasant faintly reel With tho toil which he daily boro, As ho feebly turned the lardy wheel, Or tugged at tho 'weary oari . When I measured the panting courser's speed, Tho flight of the courier dove, As they horcthc law a king decreed, Or thu lines of impatient love t I could not but think how the world would feel, As these were ciutstripp'd afar, When I should bo bound tn tho rushing keel, Ur chained to the Hying car. Ha 1 ha 1 ha I they found me at last, They invited mo forihat length, And I rush'd to my throne with thunder blast, And laughed in my iron strength.

THE 0LDCL0AK. 11V MRS. I). Pray, Mr Norton,' exclaimed a lively lady to a fashionable dressed, handsome young man, who was standing beside her at an evening p irlv, 'pray do you intend to re main an old bachelor all your days? Since your return fiu'ii Europe, I have been con tinually expecting to hear of your mairiage, but burn you have been two ycais, and you arc still, to all appearance, in statu quo, as Hie lawyer says. ' My dear Mrs. Ilinlon,' replied the young gentleman uith a smile, 'I will be frank and tell you tho real reason of my remaining a general admirer of tho sex, instead of con fining my attention to any one 'hi icht par ticular star,' however much 1 may hu daz zled by its brilliancy, I am actually afraid to marry.' Afraid !' echoed tho lady, opening liei dark eyes In their widest extent uiih aston ishment. ' Faint heart i.nver won, you know. Are you afraid lo propose V ' No madam, afraid to marry. You will laugh at me, I dare say, when I tell you that my scat in church has a great deal In do witli my solitary state which seems so much to ex cite your surprise.' Why, yes,' replied Mrs. Ilinlon, 'ono is always surprised when a young man who without meaning to Hitter you is certainly a favorite in society, (here Mr. Norton made her a polite bow,) and who has an indepen dent fortune, slill refrains from choosing ono of this many fair damsels whom he meets, to superintend his establishment. Hut what in fluence your seat in church can have upon the matter, I am at a loss lo imagine.' 1 You must hnow then, '.hat 1 sit just be hind Miss La Mode, in Dr. Uighthead's church and the sight of her velvet cloak ah- solulcly frightens me from the thoughts of narryiug u wiie wnu iiiny souiu uay say lo mo. 'My dear, I am dying for a new velvet cloak : please Id eivu mu two or Ibren hull dred dollars, nnd 1 will go lo Stewart's and buv one. Huw 1 should shudder In benr such a requusi. ' Really, Mr. Norton, this is too absurd for one with your fortune to talk in such a man ner. I shall begin to think yOU U mtuur Y i ' u r wifo might dress as extravagantly as the chose, and it would not injure you. And surely you do not object to u lady's wearing a velvet cloak V 'I do not object to any thing that is con sistent but 1 cannot help thinking splendid velvet, such us Queen Victoria lierselfinight bo satisfied with fur a coronaliun robe, sadly out of pleco whon it it in ,i j,ito a conk, to be worn on almost all occasions; particularly when il is well known that Miss La Modu's father docs not even pay his baker or his butcher. If I was one of his pour creditors I should be lempted lo take llm climb in wit the young lady in tho street, and sell it for what il would bring.' Mr. Ilinlon was silent at this spoech. Her conicienco reproached her, for she knew that she had, on thai day, purchased an cle ganl new mantle, although her husband had renuesled her to lie us us possible in her expenditures, us he found il difficult, in these trying limes, lo meet all the demands made upon I its purse. She was a woman, liowcver, of generous feelings, not us vel hardened by resisting good impulses and she secretly resolved tn lake back iho mantle the next day, und prevail upon Iho shopman to receive it, since it was not paid for. All this passed through her mind with I ho rapidity of ligiuuing, auu suu iuiiicu rouou wiui a smile to address Mr. Norton, when an over-dress- etl voting latlvt who had been silting an in teresting listener to the conversation, inter posed. , If Mr. Norton wants an economical wile, sho said, 'I would recommend liim to offer himself to Emily Ilarwood.

Mr. Norton was charmed lo perceive that it was n young lady who, by her singularly modest and unpretending appearance had at tracted his attention in the early part of the evi'iiiiiL'.

Mr. Ilinlon was Mr. Ilinlon was n man ol sense- and intelligence, lie had often deplored his wife's fondness for display, but sho was so young when ho married her, and had been so pelted from Iter childhood by a fond mother nnd was withal so lovely nnd interesting thnt ho could not find it in his h-nrt to deny her any gratification, misting that as she crow older her taste would change. I Ilo did not know that tho passion for dress is one vt hich increases with indulgence liite nil other had habits, nnd is tho hardest to over come in the female heart, particularly us was the rase with Mis.
