The Snowdrop in the Poor .Han's Window It was a darksome alley Where light but seldom sbone, Save when at noon n sun-ray touch'd The little sill of stone Beneath the poor man's window, Whose weary life was bound. To waste, nt one dull ceaseless task. The passing seasons round. Spring's dewey breath of perfume, And Summer's wealth of flowers, Or the changing hue of Anlumn's leaves, Ne'er blest his lonely hours. He knew, too well, when Winter Came howling forth again He knew it by his fireless grate, The snow, ond plashing rain ! Pierced by the frost-wind's biting, His cheerless task be plied j Want chain'd him ever to the loom By the little window side. But when the days grew longer, He stole one happy hour, To tend, with a broken vase, A pale and broken flower. How tenderly be moved it To catch the nasine rav. And smiled to sec its folded leaves y day ! lilted ofl His faded eves were lilted oft. t pri To watch the Snowdrop bloom To him it seem'd a star of light Within that darksome room ! And as he gently moved it Near to the sun. touch'd pane Oh ! who can tell what memories Were busy in his brain ? Perchance bis home in childhood In a svlvan vallev lav. And be heard the voice of the running streams, juu ine green leaves rustling piay : Terchance a long departed But cherished dream of yore, Row up through the mist of want and toil, To bless his heart once more. A voice of music whisper'd Sweet words into his ear ; And be lived again that moonlight hour, Gone by for many a year! Or but the love of nature Wiiliin his bosom stirr'd The same sweet call lliat'sanswer'd by The hlos.nm and the bird ! The free, imfettcr'd worship, l'aid by the yearning soul, When it serins to feel us wings expand To leach n brighter goal ! An aspiration, showing Karlli binds us not her slave, But we claim n brighter being, A life beyond the grave ! From the Traveller. l)c iHanln Spirit. BV EVA MILFOItD. James Davis was a flourishing young merchant in good business, witli fair pros pects for tlio future ; anil to complete his liapplncsx, ho was the husband of an ex cellcnt, loving wife, and tho father of a fine little boy four years old. It was evenin", null the little r rank had been brought down Xvith liis father nnd mother, before "oin" to ted - Tho litlle fellow was running aS,u iuwiii twin iiiiiiisiui; J1UU-.U11 in various ways, when his eye was caught bv hi molher's bend purse, lyim,' upon tho table, and immediately clambering upon a chair, ho tried to reach tho object of his wishes, hut his mother perceiving his attempts. quietly removed the purso to a safe place in her work-box. The child's face grew scarlet with race, and springing from the chair, ho doubled up his little fist and struck his mother blow alter blow, with nil the tiny force of which ho was master. ' Bravo, Frank !' exclaimed his father ; you know how to defend yourself and your rights, don't you ?' ' Oh, James,' interposed the mother, 'how can you encourage the child in such an exhibition of temper ? You surely do not wish to foster his passionate disposition.' 'Pho! pho! Ullen, vou would make a complete milksop of the boy if you had your way. It noes very well to talk about hem ousncss of temper and all that, but let me tell you, that a man who does not stand up for his own rights in the world, won't have them ; every body will tramplo on him just because they may- No, I had much rath- er the boy should be too fiery than too tame.' lru n.,ti. mniln nr. nn,i,n, t.,,1 vt..In took Frank in her arms and carried him to bod. The littlo fellow nt first resisted, hut his mother snoko to hurt firmly and mildly, telling him that ho must obey, nnd ho at once did so. As she undressed him nnd laid him in his orib, Mrs. Davis talked sc. riously to her littlo boy of the wickedness of his allowing his passion to govern him. She told him that she had been much criev. ed nt his conduct that evening, and that no doubt his Heavenly Father was displeas ed. ' Well, but mamma,' interposed the boy,' my earthly father tho one down stairs in tho parlor, I mean was not grieved or displeased, for lie laughed and patted my head.' Tho tears rushed to tho eyes of tho young mother. ' I havo a hard task before me, murmured she, for lie who should help mo only retnrds me. ' Why do you cry, dear mamma ?' in quired tho sensitivo and affectionate child. ' Is it bocauso I was naughty 1 will not do so any more, mamma. I certainly will not only do not cry, for it makes mo want to cry too. bllen kissed her child, and bidding him good night hastily entered her own room, and throwing herself upon her knees, pray, ed long and fervently to Him who knowcth 'n:....' i u..i.t i.. . ami cotnprclicndctli all our troubles .iiiiu iinsseii nn nnn - i inn i-iiiiik nnn i bcco.no u ,-ri l-,v ..f i,.n vonr.l.l.

On ono of these occa. sions Mr. Davis happening to look at his son, exclaimed : ' Why Frank ! how in the world did you get such n black cyo V ' Tom Elliott gnvo mo a hit, sir, becauso I tODk away a bird ho was tormenting.' ' Well, and what did you do when ho gavo you tho hit?' The hoy looked from ono to the other of Ins parents, and hesitated to reply. Hut catching his father's good-natured expres sion, he answered boldly : 1 Why, father, I pounded him till he was black in tho face.' ' I warrant you did. I should think tho boys would find out that it is not very safu to meddle with you,' said tho father ap provingly; while" Mrs. Davis looked at her son with a sorrowful and reproachful ex pression. The boy saw it, nnd rising, threw his arms about her neck whispering ' Dear mother pray forgive me. I was wrong, but how could I stund tamely and allow myself to bo beaten for doing what was right V ' Yes my son,' answered Mrs. Davis aloud ' I acknowledge that it was right for you to uclcml the poor bird, but I think tho good act was overbalanced by the wrong one.' ' Nonsense, Ellen,' interposed her hus band, 'as Frank loft the room. ' How is Frank ever coins to cct along in the world if ho allows every body who choosrs to tako the trouble, to beat him and trample upon him. ' Ho will havo the satisfaction of know ing that ho docs his duty, and is obeying the precepts ol his divine Master,' answer, ed the mother. ' Oh, that is all very good, but then this sentimental religion won't help a man to get his living in the world. If Frank was to be a Missionary or n jletbodist minister, it would be very well to give him these ideas, but as I bono to make Mm into n shrewd, clever man of the world, they are quite misplaced. And besides that, it is useless to try to alter him. You might as well try to teach a fish lo walk, as to give that boy your own sweet, enduring tern- per.7 Ellen smiled faintly at the compliments, but the stnilo was drowned by tho fast gathering tears. i i me swittly, and silently sped on, nnd tho boy had become almost a man. Twen ty summers had rolled over his head, and each one had added now force to the strength and quickness of his passionate temper. Ho was very hand.somo, but thero was something too indicative of the fierce tern- per within in the bright and flashing eye, in the large veins upon tho forehead, nnd in tho curving nostril. So thought his mother, but his father said ' Frank is a fine dashing fellow, and if thero is a spice of the devil in him, I like mm all tho hotter tor it. It shows that his spirit novcr was broken by tyranny, as that of many tthor high strung boys has oecn.- Ellen did not agree with this, but she did not choose to dispute with her husband, and so she contented herself with praying and hoping for the best. Frank was u highly intellectual and talented young man, and was already in Ins senior year at col lego. With his open, pleasing manners, Frank mailo mnny acquaintance among his fellow collegians. One of these vwis Frederic Ainslic, a young Southerner, to whom Frank soon became very much attached. They had boon intimate for more than a year, and had never had the slightest cold ness, or misunderstanding, when all at once, Ainslie became reserved and distant to his friend, and when Frank implored him to explain tho cause of this, ho replied, in polite astonishment, ho 'was not aware that he had treated Mr. Davis in any ungentle manly manner that certainly nothing was farther from his intention.' After so chilling an answer as this. Frank's pride forbado hint to renew his en treaties, nnd for some time they remained estranged ; but finally, affeclion conquered pride in Frank's heart, and ho took an op - portuuity to renew his earnest inquiries of his Iricnd, ns to the cause ot Ins change. For some tlmo young Ainslie refused to answer ; but nt least ho said ' When I tell you that .Mr. Bamford has told mo the opinion you expressed of me, anil tho retfon you gave for associating with inn. nnrhnnq vnu will cease tn wonder ' Tho opinion 1 expressed to .Mr. ilam-, il ?

Scarcely were these last words spoken, when Frank raised his heavy cano and, swinging it in the air, brouzht it down with full force upon Uamford's head. The heavy handlo struck upon Ids temple, and he foil to the ground a corpse. 'Frank! Frank!' exclaimed Ainslic. 'you havo killed him! you have killed him ! Fly, fly, for your life ! I will he faithful unto the death to you, and if ncccs sary, take it all upon myself; but do not stay hero.' ' I thank you heartily, Frederick, and do not doubt you would be ns good as your word, but I will never consent to such a step. I go to deliver myself up. Will you como with mo V Frederick perceiving that argument was useless, slowly followed his friend, ns he went to tell tho whole story to the l'resi. dent, nnd deliver himself up to justice. The kind old man was deeply affected ; for Frank Davis, by his talent, offahle manner and respectful behavior, had won much re- gard and esteem from the whole faculty ; but the President plainly saw that but one course was left lo him, and with a sorrow, ful heart ho saw tho young man carried to prison. Tho wretchedness which this catastrophe brought to the home of the murderer may bo imagined but not described. Every means which money and influence could command, were put in force, to impress judge and jury in favor of the prisoner, nnd tho best counsel were retained in his favor. I) tit on the other hand, plain and over- whelming stood the facts, and the young man's own confession. The time intervening between the arrest and the trial was spent by tho mother in tears and agony of prayer ; by the father, in glojmy and bitter reflection. Could he quite acquit himself of blame ? Had ho not encouraged and applaud;d the very passions which had led to mis ? Uut,' reasoned he, ' I am not answerable for his perversion of tho good nnd useful spirit which was what I aimed at in him. God gave him hands, but becauso he misuses them, is God to blamo V Thus reasoned the man of tho world, willing to adopt any hypothesis rather than tako tho blame on his own shoulders. lie regarded the guilt of the matter very little it was tho disgrace of seeing his son brought to the bar, as a common felon, lo be tried for his life it was the ignominy of having a convict for a son, that nflcctcd him ; and he sternly resolved that were he proved guilty, he could at once disown mm. The day of trial came nt length, nnd the court was crowded with spectators. The witnesses were few, but there was no need of more, for the prisoner unhesitatingly do clared himself guilty. The jury, accordingly, '.vitllbut leaving their box, brought in tho prisoner at the bar guilty of manslaughter, or murder in the second degree ; but on account of the circumstances and tho youth of tho prison or, he was recommended to mercy. There was a short pause, and then l-rank Davis was sentenced to the State Prison for life, unless pardoned by tho Governor. This, then, became the last hope ; and ere long

a petition signed bv many influential per. sons, was prcsenteil to tho humane Cover nor, and was by him almost immediately granted. The father and mother had just heard the joyful news, and Ellen, for a long time, all to live hero alter tlus anil perhaps ( Frank might not do so well in business us arrangements.

SATURDAY EVENING, MAY 27, 1818. Wo arc sorry to feel obliged to say that the Sen tinel is fastdeparting from that standard of hon orable and fair controversy which it marked out for itself at the commencement of its new life. We give it timely notice that wo shall not follow it. Our readers will recollect that we copied from the Sentinel, a few days ago, a paragraph purporting and nnnlfestly iirtended.to show that Anti-Slavery Whigs could not consistently sup port Mr. Clay for the presidency, because, as the Sentinel argued, Mr. Clay is opposed to the exclusion of Slavery " from the Territories of this Union ," for proof of which it referred to and quoted a restitution offered by Mr. Clay in the U. S. Senate, some ten years ago, aflinn ing the inexpediency nnd injustice of abolishing Slavery in the District of Columbia ! We took occasion to expose, as we think fairly and pro perly, the shallow sophistry which was expend ed in the effort to place such premises nnd con clusions in a logical relation. We also took the same occasion to lay down what we hold to be the Wmo doctrine respect ing interference with SUvery in this Union ; and tins we Unelly did us follows : The Whigs, wi.de tlpy ciaim (he rir,,t "to oppose its extension, have' repeatedly nnd " always disclaimed any rijiht or intention to " interfere in any way with Slavery, as it exists "tn the States. I hev do not intend that tho " Constitution gives them any right to such in - " terferencc.

The Sentinel has tho right, un doubtedly, to hold the discussion iiwcgard to Free Territory as " ridiculous" and "disgust ing," But while the Party to which it belong is so agitated nnd divided nn this question, (nf Free Territory) that its existence and success aro known to depend upon the adjustment or non-adjustment of it; and while tho Union if ringing with tho violent denunciation of one faction of Losofjcoism ag.urnt iha ether, on account ol a difference on this question alone, , if there is not a propriety in our calling on one of the organs of that Party to define its position respecting it, there is a gross improvrietii in I ,i . .- I . that organs m.srepresenttng and tntsstaling i A Bricklayer, employed by tho parochial au thorities of n village iu" tlio western district to erect, or as it is technically called, to hang two copH.T4 to supply the poor with soup during the severe teaion, sent in a bill in this form The gcntlemon of dr, to John Jackson, To hanging 2 coorrs to made snop for Ihe pore." iVcw Scries, Vol. 3 IVo. 40 The I.ocorocu Nomlnte.
