The woman who makes the contemptible blunder In getting up pies, To shorten the upper crust more than the Under, Is very unwise ; Not only penurious, meagre and mean, But called in the papers "decidedly green. r But look thro' this world, and you'll find that the upper, Are ever more short, More tested in tcmpt-r, more stinted in supper, .

You will find the same spirit perva ling all classes, The high and the mean L'.ke a rich satin clonk it envelopes the masses. Over ragged moreen As a spotless lalse bosom may horrors enclose, And gaiter boots laced over detestable hose. Tnere is counterfeit breeding in full circulation, More brilliant lhan gold There iscouoierleit talent and false reputation. Most fair to behold ! And (ounterfeil wealth, and its glittering dust, All showy without, like the rivu upper crust. But give me the friend that is frank for a wonder, And trusty though rough Whose upper crust proves very much like the under, And neither are tough ; Let us win what we can ol the graces of art, But pledge for them never the tiuth of the heart. Fulton's Steamer. When," said Mr. Fulton, " I was building my first steamboat at New Yi rk, the project was viewed by the public either with indifference nr , contempt, as a visionary scheme. My friends, Indeed were mil, but Iney were sny. tney listened with patience to my explanations, but with a settled cast of incredulity on their coun tenances. I felt the full force of the lamentation of the poet, " Truths would you tench to save a sinking Isnd, All fear, none aid you, and few understand." As I hadoccarion to pass daily to and from the biiilidng-yard, while my boat was in progress, 1 have often loitered, unknown, near the idle groups of i-trangers, gathered in little circles, and heard various inqi tries as to the object ol lhi new vehich'.

I wa well aware, that in my cafe there wa man) reasons to doubt i f my own success. The ma-chin-ry was new and ill mado ; many parts ol it were constructed by mechanic iiiiaecustom ed to such woik ; and unexpected dillicultior night reasonably be presumed to present them selves from other causes. The moment urrivec In wl.ich the wo:d was to be given for the vessel 1 1 move. My iiiouds were in groups on the deck. There was anxiety mixed with feai among them. Tuey were silent, and sad, and weary. 1 read In their look- nothing but disas ter, and almost repented of my rflnrts. The sig nal was given, the boat moved a small distance and stopied, and became immovable. To tin silence of the preceding moment now succeeded murmurs in uiscoiiient, anu rtgiiaiiuiif nuu wills pcrs, and shrugs. I could hear distinctly re- f eated, I told you it would be so it is a fini sh scheme I wi-h we were well nut of it,' I elevated myself upon a platform and addressed the assembly. I stated that I knew nut what was the matter ; but if they would be quiet, and indulge me for half an hour, I would either go on, or abandon the voyage for that time. This short respite was conceded without objection. I went below, examined the machinery, and dis covered that the cause was a slight misadjust ment nf some of the work. In a short period it was obviated. The boat was put again in mo linn. She continued to move on. AH were still incredulous. Aone seemed willing to trust the evidence of their own senses.

' The Foreign News by the Steamer Niagara. The Steamer Niagara, a short abstract of whose newt we gave in Monday's Thelegraph. ie Despatch, arrived In Boston on Saturday last with seven days later intelligence from Europe. We tr've below an enitnnie of hsr niwa aa we the city of Rome, accompanied by the deliberate assassination 01 rrnssi, rrlme Oiintster, as he alighted from his carriage at the entrance nf the C umber of Deputies, on the 16lh "It. On the ftillnn ing day the insurgents proceeded In a body to the Pope's palace, where they demanded a new and more Democratic. Ministry and four oilier concessions, of which the Pope, at first, re fused tn grant. Subsequently the citizens re newed their demands tn the Pope, and gave him an hour tn consider, after which, if not acceded to, they announced their firm purpose tn break into the Palace and 'put to death every jnmalp. thereof with the .tingle exception of his Holi ness himself. As successful resistance was not tn be hoped for, Pius IX. yielded, and sent fur Gallettl, and with him arranged the new Minis try in accordance with the riomand, of the pen pie. Mainiani is appointed Minister of Foreign Affairs. Accounts from Home up to the eve ning of the SOih have been received, at which time there prevailed perfect tranquility. In the Deputies, a proposition had been mrde to assure hi' Holiness of the fidelity nf that C.iamber, but when put In Vote, it was rejected. In Paris, the only topic of interest, except the Presidential contest, is the course which the Government has adopted in consequence of the events which have taken place at Hume. A pro found impression has been produced by the an nouncement made in the Assembly, that the Government had rn.olved to send an expedition of 3500 to Ci vita Vecchia, to secure the perian al liberty of the Pope and M. C ircelles, who has been ordered on an extrsnrdiim.y mission to Rome, has instructions to offer his Hn'incss an asvlum in France. The Government dis 'claim anv Intention tu interfere In tho political affilrs of Fume, or ol employing troops other wise than in securing the personal liberty of the Pope. Tho excitement in regard to the npptoacliing election continues tn increase in Paris and throughout France. Tne English accounts leiive scarcely any room to doubt that Louis Na poleon will be elected by a triumphant majority but such is not the conclusion which well informed and unprejudiced persons arrive at in Pari. Nnonediiubisthat Louis Napoleon will receive the greatest number nf votes, but it is considered very doubtlul whether he can secure the 3.000.000, which is requisite before he nan lie elected by the popular vote. Should the choice nf President be thrown into the Assem bly, there is not a question but that General Cavaignac would be elected by a vc:y large ma jority Iiuis Napoleon has published a manifesto to the nation, which is replete with fair and pat riotic, promises, and which, it is presumed, will prove of material advantago towards securing his election. Lamarline, it is now raid, will not be a candidate, but will throw his influence iu favor of Cavaignac. The debate on the conduct of Gen. Cavaignae during the insurrection of June, terminated on Saturday night, in the Chamber by an over whelming innjuity, expressing I heir approval of the conduct ot the General. The result of the dividon was : In favor of General Cavaignac, 03 Against him, 31 In Encinnd Ihe ehnlpra has almost entirnlv ceased its ravages. In Scotland, too, there has i been a material diminution nf caea. The argument of counsel in the case in error of Smith O'Brien, ha' been brought to a close, hut the Court has deferred judgment till next term. The Bank of England accounts fnrnlh pvi J'Mice of increasing improvement in its position, rue bullion is still on the increase, and now .mounts tn 13,913,9(0. The London money market Is easy, and there is a rumor that th bank will soon reduce its rate nf interest. C msols on the 1st were 87 i'or money and account. A well informed correspondent of the London Times at M -ssina, states that an almost imme liate settlement of the pcnd'ng dispute between he King of Naples and his S.cilian subjects is xnected to take place. tn commercial matters, generally, there con inues to be gradual, though slow improve nent.

HOPE . A great variety of flowers huh th Creator planted In the garden of the human mind. A mnne those not the least attractive and beautiful Is Hope. In looking at the structure nf the mind, we do not regard hepe is a distinctive faculty, but a an exercise. It belongs to the class of emitions, and although lets violent than some, fur instance fear and anger, It Is more powerful, and in a kind of way most needed In the constitution of man. It has a sustaining power. It places itself right opposite to that dark and dread emotion detvair, and is perpetu ally engaged in counteracting its Influence. It may be true that there are found some in whom It appears only as a gllaering light, but tlw by reason of this idiosyncrasy may be considered as exceptions. The law of our nature Is to hope. The necessity of the law Is as obvious as the law itself. Without the operation of .....i. n.:n.tj. .....u , , inlhis world certainly to live in comfort Henee when amid the fall of man so many flow-' "" a pi.Hnpir w.iuiu do impossioie io live . i. : . , . ers of Paradise withered and died, this remained wim us bioom ana neauty to please his eye, and cheer his heart. Some " plant, there are that can grow only in Paradise. This will spring up any where even amid the deserts of the world. It is never to be eradicated from the soil of humanity. It is congenial and coeval with us, for as long as we live there will be de sired and expected good before us. It seems to underline the entire strata of human faculties and feelings, so that if they could be conceived to disappear or be extinguished, it would still remain. Like a perennial spring embosomed in the earth, it dwell, witiiin man. It Is a spark' ling fountain in the interior court of this august temple the soul of man, whoe waters are ever bubbling up in beauty and brightness. Hence flows tho stream nt comfort through the valley of human life. There is not a condition of hu manity on which hope is not attendant. There is not an aspect of our destiny on which her be nignant light does not fall. Who is a stranger to her impulses ? Cnildhood reaches forward to youth. Youth impatiently awaits manhood. Manhood hopes on the very confines of age Too traveler, far distant from his home, has this for a cheerful companion. The mariner, tossed upon the treacherons wave, with joy an ticipates the hour of his anchorage in some friendly port. The sick man continually look inc forward to the time of restoration to health. Even the dying man often hopes to the moment of giving up the ghost. In the busy bustling world ol human beings how many are led on by this in the pursuit after wealth, fame, power, promotion, pleasure. She smiles on the immur ed captive drooping and sotrnwing within the gloomy cell to which superstition, despotism or bigotry has consigned him. Oh gentle, genial, unsleeping hope ! holy offspring of infinite be nevolence, divine creation of the Omnipotent. .V. V. Observer. A BnAVK Oi.niSoLtjlF.il.

I've lov'd my last! for I have heard The given promise, plighted word, The fairest vows that e'er were spoken, By the same tongue that made them broken. And looks of love, with smiles sincere, Ilave mingled with affection's tear To meet those vows so warmly given ; tToo soon they come from heart now riven ;) I've learned that treason, can, with guile, Both lurk beneath a woman's smile f I've lov'd my last! I've lov'd my last ! The dream is o'er, the vision's past, And now the beating hesrt is free, Tbot once lov'd deep and fervently ; The love that reign'd therein for oue Has faded, now it beats for none ; Though all may chide that cold I seem, I'll trust not the delusive dream.

Hj wants to get all the money tie can lor iris surplus productions, which is not only natural, but right; ami men ne wants to get an ne can for his money, and thai again is li.'ht. He thinks that he can best accomplish his desires by the free trade system, because England will give him more cloth for one dollar than we can. We think he can gain his end only by the pro tective system, because we say it is only under that system that he can get his dollar to start with and without the dollar it Is a matter of in difference to him who sells cloth cheapest, for he would not be in the market as a purchaser. Toe first thing then for the Western farmer to do is, to find a purchaser for his surplus, and his first question, Where is my custo-ner 7 for an answer to this question, let him examine the following statistics : In 1844, (we take that year for two reasons, 1. There was no famine anv where, und the op erations represent the current of trade under or- dinary circumstances ; and 3. We happen to have the documents on hand.) our exports irom all the States to all Europe, of flour, corn, and pork, were as follows, viz: 161.103 barrels ol flour, $310,516 88 903 barrels corn, 44,4'J8 11,688 barrels pork, 117,880 372.861 Tho imports from other parts of the United States into New England were, for the same lima. estimated bv addinr? 60 ner cent, to the imports to Boston, for the quantities received at other New England ports, and which we bo. lieve to be under the mark, and deducting tho foreign exports from Boston.) 923.017 barrels flour, 9 l.oio.osa 1,960,663 barrels corn, 1.176,807 60.0C0 " pork (exclusive of exp's) 600,000 5,336.382 This It rtnf that under ordinary circuov -ns ,h mnanmmion oi new cingiann -rr - .

The impotls of the present year, eallmated as befotc, and allowing the present mouth of De cember pro rata to the oil'erele.en months, will stand thus, viz; 1.117,881 barrels Flour 6,727,286 3 86J 779 bushels Corn 3,897.083 104 C03 Uriels Pork, 1,348,000 10,872,369 Showing an Increase, in four years, tetenty fTh. i'ivin Fsrmoi' has found an answer to this question ; Now England is his customer before all the world.

Ing depending on dry weather, or wet weather, but a heavv supply wanted under all clrcnm stances. MVre then. h has found his dollar. and now he wants to Invest it. We tell htm, frankly, that he must buy what he wants of us so far is we can supply his wants if he ex pects to sell to us. Our ability to consume de pends upon our ability to sell the productions of our own labor. We have no gold mines noth ing but fish, Ice, granite,lamberand labor; and if these cannot be made available to buy flour and corn, we must reduce our population, by emigration, tn that number which can lire upon the sea and the soil, and so close our market against the productions of agriculture from oth er States. If the products of foreign labor are to come Into direct competition with the pro ducts of our labor If we must work for Euro pean wages, or emigrate to the West, and com- Eete witn me western rarmer in producing read we shall choose to emigrate and adopt that alternative I This year we have paid our, money for bread for the surplus of the West but we have not received it sgain ; it has been suit abroad to pay far foreign fabrics, while our own mills and workshops have been closed, and our labor left unemployed. This csnnot last, of course, and the question for the " Western Farmer" to an swer, is whether he will look to the markets of Europe, which, under ordinary circumstances, do not take enough of his productions to pay for Us cotton shirt", or will he encourage New England industry, and keep a great, sure and f rowing market. We think he cannot hesitate n his answer, even if he thinks he has to pay something more for our fabrics ; but we intend to show at another time, that the effect of the protection we claim, is to reduce prices a point as clear, to our minds, as it is that our market Is of more importance to the agricultural State, than not only all Europe, but all the world be sides.
