EVENING STAR. THE POET'S POWER. BT LOU m. I would the poet's power were mine, From mental ore to mould the thought, That glows in every flowing line, With mslodv an * feeling fraught. 1 woo Id mine warn the skill to wake The silent melodies which sleep In every soul?as others break The slumbers of my spirit deep; To pour from poesy's breathing lyre, Strains of wild music on the ear; To kindle coldest hearts to Are, And make, at will, a smile or tear. Then rri^h: 1 hope, when, cold and lone, Within the silent grave I lie, To leave, revered ts well as known, A memory that could not die. Then might I hope to leave a name Inwoven with tne spe'l of song. And echoing from the elitfi offline, Borne on the tide of time along. But to a destiny so high, No kindly star my path doth light; And soon must I forgotten lie, In ccld oblivion's silent night. Yet, no ! tho' to the trorli unknown, To some my memory will be dear; There's one, at least, his friend will mourn And at my tomb weep many a tear. Thus be it?better for a name Enshrined In one fond, faithful breast Than that the favored few of fame. Leave with the world, unknown, unblest! You DIB A.1D ARE FOEOOTTBX.?Ile'i de*<f dead. What, Ned Nolten dead! Well he was a good fellow and a warm friend of mine ; but, I say boys what are you going to baye to drink. Can't expect to live always, you know, and we might as well enjoy life while we do live. Or, she s dead! No; Mrs. Morgan no more? Really you don't say so! What will become of her poor ohildron? But what a love of a bonnet that is of yours ; do pray tell me all about that party last night. Wasitaycry brilliant affair? Husband is quite sick, but I should surely have been there had I not been obliged to stay at home to keep him com pany. though I'm sure 1 didn't do him any g'^d. Pray what did Mrs. Morgan die of? chc always professed a deal of friendship for me, ani I believo I reciprocated it though I haven't been to see her for a month, and hardly knew that she was at all sick. So wags the world. You live; and as your eager lungs drink in tho breath of life and frundt crowd around to grasp your hand, you fondly imagine yourself tho sum of existence, nor think the time would soon come when thufe who know you now shall know you no more for ever, not even in memory. See you that hearse. iU black plumes fluttering in the breeze ' lie whose body it bears to the last resting plaoe. was aa noble and as popular as you. To-day his name may be mentioned casually among his acquaintances, but to morrow he is forgotten even by his friend*. Do you rail at friendship' Think whether you are more true to the memory of the do ceased?whether your thoughts revert oflener than once in a month to those of your friends who died only a year, or two years, since. Think and may you profit by the reflection. 13** Mrs Fantadliiig is dying of grief. Iler pet canary is down with inflammation of kid neys, and nothing affords it relief. Mrs Fan tailing deserves cur sympathies. Till they arrive, she should resort to burn) feathers ' Catch the rooster, Dan, and :inge his tail." MOVEMENTS OF OCEAN STEAMERS.
