EVENING STAR. A VI8I0H. J drearopta dream ?a waking dream, Ftn It rame with the moan'a pale yellow beam , And methougbt 1 mw, in lis glittering rays, A vision of long departed day a; It bore me awavr to a distant strand When I heard the tongre of mr na'lve land, There warrior* met with eyea of Are, And darkly frowned In their patriot Ire, While 1 saw, as their banners were ra'aed on high Thalr motto was "IVath or Liberty." My country's motto ' but oh I found Her enemies breathed the wfll-known sound, While England, overwhelming thought, Against the cause of Freedom fought, when lo' a chief with a thoughtful mien, 3 saw arise, midst the restless scene, And o'er that scene's chaotic night He beamed with f.ure and guiding light, And soon to his flag, from the Gallic shore Came a noble youth, the rough seas o'er, And others from thence his steps pursued. Their hearts with Freedom's lova Imbued ; And quickly learned on that distant spot A leasou they never, no never forgot. And thev fought and conquered on Freedom's Me, With the Chief?Columbia's noblest p?lde, Till the tide of Wi r was turned cn her foes; Till the eagle, in air, triumphant arose, And the shout was heard o'er land and sea, ''Our cause is bleat, and Columbia free !" Then Wisdom spoke by that chieftain's voice, When called to rule by the people's choice; But soon, for his country's wish too soon, He resigned his sway, that country's boon, Repaired again to the svlvan shade. To the plowshare turned his patriot blade; And greater than king in his jewelled crown Was he, when he laid his greatness down. And when that summona which comes to all. Threw over thla loved the funeral pell. A people wept o'er his simplegrave, Wheie nought but the cedar branches wave; How need'es* to him a tomb to raise. Whose fame must live to the end of days; In a country through his labors free, Shall future age his trophies see ; On a people's hea't, not on senseless stone, Is graven the name of Wasbixqtom. The Birth of a Dimple.?A pretty idea 5s evolved in the following petite pair of poetic dimples: Cupid, near a cradle creeping. Saw an infant gently sleeping; The rone that blushed upon its ehcek deemed a birth divine to speak. To ascertain if earth or heaven To mortals this fair form had given, He, the little urchin simple, Touched Its cheek and left a dimple. Heat* Downward ?The patriotic French ?men who do not particularly admire Louis Jiapolcon's strong government, ha\c an in seniouj method of expressing their dissatis faction. They affix the post stamp*, which bear Napoleon's head, on their letters head downward So extensively has this become the sign of opposition, thai four-fifths of all the letters posted have the head inverted.
