LIFE. BY II. W. LONorEl-LOVV. Tell me not In mournful number, " Life is but an empty dream !" For the toul is dead that slumbers, Aud things are not what they seem. Lire is real! Life is earnest ! Dust thou art.to dust returnest," Wu not spoken of the soul. Rot enjoyment, and not sorrow, Is our destined end or way, But to act, lbs t each to-morrow Find us farther than to-day. Art is lone, and Time is fleeting, And our hearts, though stout nnd brave, Brill like muffled drums arc beating Funeral marches to the grave. In the world's broad field of battle, In the bivouac of Lile, Be not like dumb, driven cattle ! Be a hero in the strife ! Trust no Future, howe'er pleasant I Let the dead Past bury its dead I Act act in the living Present ! Heart within, and God o'erhead ! Lives of great men all remind us, We can make our lives sublime ; And, departing, leave behind us FooteicpB on the sands of time : Footsteps that perhaps another, Sailing o'er life's solemn mam, A forlorn and shipwrecked brother, Seeing, shall take heart again. Let us, then, be up nnd doing, With a heart for any fate ; Still atchieving, still pursuing, Learn to labor and to wait. SOLOJIOIV swallow. THE WOMAN TAMER. " Rule a Wife, and have a JfiV." Solomos Swallow was bachelor, nnd a rusty one, loo ; but nevertheless he had made up Ilia mind to one thing; that he was the only man living who had acquired any knnwlege of the sublime art of taking care of a wife. " All married men are dulls," was Solomon's constant observation. There, for instance, is my neigh bor Tom Tangible ; his wife makes a sort of a threo legged stool of him ; she shoves him in one corner and then in another, and sits on him nnd walks on him, as if he was nobody in the house j while he, poor man, takes it as easy as if it was the most natural thing in the world. Now that I were only Tom Tangible ; I'd first write a se ries of matrimonial rules, and if Mrs. T. did n't abide by them, I'd submit her to the wholesome discipline of bread and water and a padlock ; and mayhap brighten her ideas by the applica tion of the good cow-hide. And there again are Kvcrett Easy, Dick Snooks and a host more of them in the same condition ; but I, I'm the boy that will set them all right, if they will only fol low my example, after I have condescended to endow some fortunate female with the legal claim to the title of Mrs. Swallow.'

At this important ioriod Solo- mo5 was a puffy, comfortable looking little fcl-. low as you'J meet in a day's walk, for allieit the 1 crown of his head never stood full five feet from the heels ofhis boots, he was of propo.tion that would have honored an alderman or even a Lord Mayor ; and his gait (especially when walking will, anything in likenesf a woman) was at pompoui at a Sultan's; while at such times his countenance always assumed an expression that could not have brooked the approach of f.unil-1 Urity. The lady whom Solomon had chosen for his 'worserhaff,' was apparently a lamb-like creature, so that the chances were very fair that I she would not only be a tractable wife, but that 1 Solomon would require no help from his system to make her so. " Now Solomon had the forbearance not to inter-' timated to his partner that iHvas time to get up.

But though in the present instance she did precisely M he wa. bid ; she resolved in heart that it was ' the last time she would get up at six in the morning 10 prepare DreaKtast. At 8 o'clock everything being ready, Mrs. Swallow called Mr. Swallow. 'Breakfast ia ready, Mr. Swallow. ' Is the toast made ?' Yes.' ' Burned ?' ' No.' ' Are my stockings aired ?' ' Yes. ' You'll do,' quoth Mr. Swallow, and to break fait he went, having first received the services of the blushing Mrs. Swallow to assist him indrcs ing. The breakfast however did not turn out to be the thing it had been cracked up for. The toast was done a liule too much and tea was n t none quite enough, the slop bowl was at the wrong end of the tray, and there were sev eral crumbs on the carpet.

I The lady was again posed, and she said no thing, but tho day wore to its close before she could bring herself to believe that .Mr. Swallow had actually made use of the words ' servant' and ' wife' in the same sentence. The next mornine at 6 o'clock. Mr. Swatlnu.' again informed his wife that it was time to get up, coupling the remark with the suggestion that in luiure sue must save nim tho trouble of re inindiiH' her of so necessurv a dutv. Mrs. Swallow, however. beiietitlpH nnlblnn l,v this soft insinuation, for at the moment, sh'o either was or pretended to be, fast locked in tho arms of Mnrphpus.

And this magnlficrm Idea had scarcely crossed tlio threshold of his brain, than he Inserted the point of a huge pin Into the arm nftlio sleeper. A might bo expected, the in tended effect lnfanlly followed tlio cause, for the astonished Mrs. Swallow sprung from lier bed as though she had been thrown from It by an earthquake I Hut alas, her auility was too strikingly manifested, for she nlronly all but annihilated pnor Solomon In rolling over him, but she dashed his patent lever from the nail which suspended It to tl-AtJL.und broke the dial Into a thousand pieceff ' What a dreadful dream, ciaculated Mrs. Swallow pressing her left hand over lier woun ded arm. ' What a dreadful reality.' shouted Mr. Swal low, contemplating the fragile ruins of Ids de molished time piece.

Daniel Webster. For President, HENRY CLAY. For Vice President, MILL All 0 FILLMORE), OF NEW YOJIK. Subject to the decision of the Whig National Con vention. O On Thursday of last week, Mr. Webster, delivered a speech in tho Senate on tho War the Treaty, and the policy, or rather tho impol icy and Imminent danger, of the acquisition and annexation to this Union, of foreign territory. It is universally conceded to be one of the no blest efforts of his great intellect not Inferior to his celebrated Reply to I layne, on the Footc resolutions, In 1830. The mighty Senator is in the full vigor of his extraordinary powers, and ready to stand by the Constitution whenever it is assailed, or its integrity threatened, by nulli ficrs or loose constructionists. We wish we had room for the whole of this speech. It is rich In the lessons of mature po litical widom, nnd impressive in its warnings against the unwonted perils that surround us, as well as scorching in its rebuke of those demagogues who sock to hide their own infi delity to the true interests and policy of the Re public, by assailing the motives of those who sec no patriotism in upholding an unjust war, or in enlarging the boundaries of this already almost limitless Union, by the conquest of foreign nations. Wo give, below, an extract which exhibits a specimen of the temper and spirit with which Mr. Webster dealt with the pre tensions of those who arrogate to themselves all the credit of being exclusively " Americans." After expressing the hope that the Ten Regi ment Bill would not become a law, Mr. Webster said : Ami here 1 dare say I shall be colled by some a " Miwicnn Whijj." 'Ilie man who can stand up here nnd fay that hclinppsth.it what the administration projects, and the turther prosecution ol the war with Mexico requires, may not Iw carried into effect, mii-l be nn enemy lo his country, or what gentlemen huc considered lho same thing, an enemy to the President nfthc United Suites mid to his administra tion nod his parly, He is a .Mexican.

He says he will try what virttio there is in a " Pass," once moro, if his fragment of a government will give him nne.and go into honorable exile in " furrin parts." Since lien.

Wo cannot help thinking the best joke in it Is tho Eitor's assertion that wo Yankees are supe rior to the French in loquacity! Wc should as soon think of comparing a bob-o-llnk with a crow, A meeting of tho French residents of New York city was holdcn at St. John's Hall, on the 22d March, in honor of the recent Revolution in Franco. Among the transactions at this meet ing we notice that the titles Monsieur and Messieurs were suppressed, as anti-republican, and replaced by that of Citoycns. On this sub ject the editor of tho Courrier iles Etats Vnis has the following sensible remarks : " One scene nt this meeting appeared to us particu larly deplorable. It was that in which some persons, who mnke lheir republiconism to consist in words, shouted their aiiathemns against the first speaker, who had the politeness to make use ol the term Mcssieurt. and required that this aristocratic np-iellutlon should be replaced by that ol Cttoycns. Laughable incidents resulted from Ibis ridiculous innovation : all the speak ers pronounced at each instant, Irom force ol liabil, Ihe fatal Mettieuin but, being called at once to order by their inexorable auditors, they recovered themselves very quickly, like school boys who have mode n blun der. Their tongue, alas 1 turned back lo their repub licanism of the day before! This pitilul borrowing f rum the vulgnr and prosaic traditions of our ancient revolution is, we repeat it, deplorable.

' Do the Americans, our masters in democracy, give us hke examples'. Among them, is not politeness allied with the mosvnbsolule equality I Do even ihe most radical Locobros lielieve that they Hay their tongues and their pntiiotism by pronouncing the words Matter, Sir, and Geitleman, which, grammatically are words lor more tristocrutic than our iiiollensive .Vesffietrs The Americans hi'e understood equality, in seek ing to elevate nil to th; dignity of gentlemen.

Brisbane, an American, who, in an address ia French, rendered homage in the happiest terms to the devotion of France to the cause of liberty. The editor says thus : " In general we (Frenchmen) should be sparing ol public meeting. We have neither ihe hnbit nor the discipline suited for them, nnd our sell love loses more than it gains in this sort of exhibitions.

I ' niost enlightened portion ol the civ ilued woild Tl.si TUESDAY EVENING, AI'HII, 4, 18.8. Our Vlllnge, Xo. 3. Wo had a word or two to say, yesterday respecting the manifest want ol Hotel accommo dations in our growing and prosperous village a want that, it is very plain, tho completion of ouf uaiiroads, now in a state of active advance ment, and the consequent augmentation of travel and business, will render absolutely Intolerable. It i obvious now, to thoo best acquainted with the matter, that a Hotel of lho largest class, would be amply sustained, without any other det riment to those already in existence than such as would result from reducing their Inmates to their rational christian capacity. For the past live or six years, the numbers of strangers an nually arriving at, and passing through, Bur lington, in pursuit of business or pleasure, liavo prodigiously increased j and every indication is that the present year will be distinguished above all its predecessors for the large ratio ol this in crease. Travellers have complained, publicly and privately, and with reason, not of the want of disposition, (for that would argue an iiinos pitality which cannot be charged upon us) but of a want of the necessary accommodations to render their Nit to our ploaant village com fortable, and a thing desirable in the repetition. Such complaint are made by those who are attracted to Hurlingtoii by the multiform induce ments with which the hand of nature and enter prise of man have endowed it ; aud though nc should be among lho first to disclaim the re proach they imply, if they were unfounded, w are, also, among the last to feel thin-skinned when their truth i undeniable. It is always better to remedy our faults when they are point ed out, than to " nflend our lungs" hy railing against the friend who detects them at least ice think so. I?i 1 1 perhaps we have said enough orl this topic though we certainly do think it is one in which our best citizens Ante, and in which we happen to know many of them feel, a tlecided interest. With strangers, opinions and impressions with regard to a town, are always more or lcs modified by their opinions and im pression of its l'ublic Houses. Every man's experience will certify this j and if one is com pelled to lose himself in a crowd, in one case, or is met at the threshold with never so civil and courteous an "All full, sir!" in the other, ho ii likely to as-ociate with his recollection of the place, grim vision of mass meeting where he had less identity than a leaf on a painted tree, or disagreeable ideas of having been once turned out of door !
