Spring, And lift hia silver wing. We will tow down before hia fkoe aa one Who ooine* with tidinga from the only King Yea, he 1a Thine; Thy lianda did weave thia orown, Thase golden garlands round hia temple* fling; All mute things knows hia presence and give praise, The wo?>dl?ine yearns around hia arma to oltng, Morn weave* his palace iroin her id moat raya, And sweet birds noatie in hia hair sing, ?? God of the purple Spring. We thank Thee for the mori lug's vestal I laze. And evening with her locks of sob'r brown ; A\ a thank Thee for the emerald Summ? r days And Autumn with her nights of weary moan; We thank 1 hee for the quiet SeMath hours, \\ bich speak for man a fairer bloasoinmg : We thank Thee for the sunset's burnished towers. Cut more, more than for these, with all they bring, We thauk Thee for the Spring ! Angel. thy splendors never oould have ahone I pon the Orient t'a as here they shine. Else her immortal bard from thee had known A softer music for his glorious line; He would have seen th?? burstine of tlie graves. He would have heard their mouldy ailenoe ruig With peana like the noise of niauv waves, And ocean'soozy charnela throband sing Through the'green gates of Spring. What ia so sweet aa clover by the way. So fresh mm violets lifting the dead leaves ? W hat ia so downy as a l>eecben spray, So uiuaicai as swallows round the eaves ? W hat is so queenly aa the jasmine belts between whoao walla the bee forgeta his sting ? Yet theae are ttime.all these, the apioy dells. The balm, the glorious tinta, the caroling, O, roar-footed Spring ! Lover of moasy tanks, we welcome thee Back to the orchard paths And yearning hills Come, hang thy mantle on the crownles* tree; An<l scatter dappled pinks and daffadils; And we will wreathe thy brow and clasp thy knees With Mooms prefer our fresh tliank-ottering Of gentle mood*. new hopes, while glossy bees Hum through the delicate urns that roll and swing Around thy liaiba, O Spring ! The royal blue-bird whose soft vest was dipped l,ong in the August hrmaneut's rich wave. And the fine robin of thy dews have sipped. And league to aiug the blossoms from their grave; All spirits of the aml>er budded boughs Call thee sweet names. Bridegroom of Flowers and ? Kin*; The distant valleys and the near hedge rows. The silvery vault and gluuincriug mountains sing lo, delicious Spring! Great Tan reclined in odorous shades and woke The ochoes of the lulls, long, long ago. And while-artned Drjads daueed beneath the oak Nor marked th*rapid seasons o'er them How ; The (treads t ripped along the mountain way a : But all the past gone is the Satyr king, A purer breath the grove and the woodland sways. And with a better Name the flute notes ring Of lily bosomed Spring. Hosani as for the birda and flowers, O God ! I see Thee in the bloom and mellow beams. Yet 1 am sari even where so lately trod Thy radiant feet and woke the sleeping streams; Our bosoms for a purer region yearn We feel the flutter of the i tnmn rial trim 'Gainst its clay walla: unsatisfied we turn From Summer's crown and the fresh tints that fling A glory round the Spring. A Novel Wat to Effect Sales ?The Balti more Weekly Dispatch sava some of the clothing dealers on Centre Market Space have a way of se curing sale* occasionally, which savors strongly ??f rascality and the drop game. Theyplace in the coat pocket an old portemonnaie stuff.-d with paper; a customer comes along inquiring forsuch a vestment The dealer, if he judges his custom er to be of the right stripe, after essaying several coats, at last says : '? Here is a coat we made for a gentleman, he wore it one dav and sent it back; It was too small for him?try ft on. Ah ! it fits first rate?like it was made for you. It is well made, buttons sewed on strong, with strong pockets " The customer puts his hand into the porkets to try them, when his lingers come in contact with the pocket book. His imagination is kindled with the idea of appropriating the supposed treasure. ' Hi>w much dla vou say the coat was' ' he eagerly asks. The dealer names a good round price It suits me?I'll take it," is the quick reply The money ia paid, the self duped customer walks off Hurriedly with his supposed prize, not stopping to bear the sup pressed chuckle of the dealer as be looks after him out of the corner of his eye. The issue can be guessed?the covetous buyer finds out there is a difference oetween paper arid paper money, and ?? bothenraged and mortified to find that his own dishonest avarice has led him to pay an extrava gant price for a Mirthless article that fits him so i>adlv that he is ashamed to wear It. Unless, however, his greenness is of a deeper -.hade than ordinary, he is careful not to mention it, even to his most intimate friends. ILr In an important case in New York City, a few days since, one of the jurymen during the progress of the case, devoted his attention to read Jag a newspaper. The evidence didn't seem to interest him. L/~ An individual, wearing a bright scarlet uniform, and carrying a long sword, has been per ambulating the streets of Newport. Ky.. for the past few davs. He states that he is Elijah, the prophet, and predicts the destruction of the world speedily. iLr The birthday of Henry Clay was appro priately celebrated' bv the Clav Assaciation, at Houston, Texas, on Monday, by a splendid sup per. Letters were read from RoT>ert C Winthrop and Edward Everett, of Massachusetts, In reply toinvitations to be present. KA lump of gold was taken out of the old 'aton" claim, in Holden'a Garden, says a California paper of the 6th inst . on Saturday last, worth one thousand dollars. This is the claim fVom which a thirty-five pound lump was taken in the fall of IbSI. CT7" Mrs. Nicholson savs : ??Clandestine mar* riage* seldom bring happiness ; the woman who sacrifices home ahd father's and mother's affec tion for a lover, unless the parents are unusually unreasonable, generally reaps that reward which follows in thefuotsteps of ingratitude and diso bedience." CT7* A large family of colored persons, manu mitted by the will of their late master, a gentle man of Montgomery. Ala., have been provided with a home a:id m^ans of support in that city. Their maMer left al>out 912.WHI to them, with their I'ffdom, on condition they should remove to a State. fl-r -An extraordinary feature of reccnt medical experience is, that consumption prevails along the Southern st-aroaot of the 1 nited States, Cuba, and other \\esi India Islands, as inuch as it does at the North. This is known to physicians in the West Indies. The St Paul. Minn . Advertiser says the landlords of that place have this season advanced their iates for stotes and dwellings from twenty to thirty percent, ovtr the prices demanded for the same buildinu* last year, and think them ?elvea justified in doing so by the increase of bus ines? and immigration in prospect. A ^Mrirn Dead head ?In churches sleepy, bead* have always been numerous, but. until re cently, we never heard of any one claiming dead head exemption when the plate went around I.a*t Sunday, in a Western village, when the ? plate" was being passed In ? church, a gentleman said to the -'collector"?- Go on : I'm a dead-head? I've got a pass !?* . HmiiU!! Death?A son of Mr. James An drews. of Saratoga, met with his death in a sin vular manner. Saturday morning last. He had a rleaning out the barrel of his gun by either wiping ?r washing, and. after having, as he sup posed. removed all tbe powder, took a candle ami ptaeefl jt in proximity to the hole in the butt 'J* , f/'1*'1 **?ile he covered the muzzle with .h?
