LIFE, DEATH AND ETERNITY. A shadow moving bv one's side, That woo Id a substance seem.? That is. ?et ,? not?thoueh described? Like ?k,os l?eiieath tho stream ; A tree that's ever in the Mooni, Whoso fruit is never ripe; A with for joys that never come? Muoh are the hopea of Life. A dark, inevitable Bight, A blank that will remain ; A waiting for the morning light. When waiting la in raiu; , A g u ph where pathway never led To show the depth beneath : A thing we know not, yet we dread.? That dreaded thing is Death. The vaulted void of purple akr 'I'hat everywhere extends. That stretches frcm the dizzied ere.

'Twas evening?a balmy June evening?in New Orleans, the gay metropolis of the sunny South. The rcd-crosted waves of the Gulf, roll ing lazily in from the setting sun, lathed the pebbly beach in front of the city, and rocked the fleet of vessels Anchored in the offing?a picturesque me-lley of sm?k ing stoamor J. cotton laden merchantmen, filibuster cruisers. Afri can slavers, and Ca^tilian fishing smacks. In the far distance, to the east, might be seen tho glittering mosques and minarets of Algiers, dis tinctly defined against the deep blue of tho still more distant hills of Opeloustts. To the w^st the watery expanse wa? relieved by the Cande labra Islands, interrupting but beautifying the hazy view of somniferous Mobile. The scene, in short, was such as to gladden the poetic eye aad saturate tho soul with soft, sweot melan choly. Nor were the *ounds that greeted the ear less soothing iu effect than the view of the surround ing scenery. A sharp and melodious twang came from tho flocks of birds that flocked tho blue vault above?the ^allinippers. a sneciesof pelican peculiar to Louisiana?whilst tho deop choral roar of the alligators in the Ma.?sasip Bayou and Lake Gretna, was pleasantly relieved Ly the sharp cracking of tho rifles and pistol* of the merchants and lawyers and other deui tens of tho city, settling up their daily disa greements on Pontchartr.iin llidge. and aftor the peculiar fashion of the tropic*. The streets of the city presented their wonted lively aspcct. Here might be seen a foot-race between a Sena tor and a Cyprian, with cowhides and pistols switching and popping?there a rough-and-tum ble oouibat between an Alderman and boot-jack with the ladios applauding troin the balconies, over yonder a ring-fight between a judge and a steamboat engineer?whilst the boys in crowds were pelting houses with bricks and stones, in different directions, and the dog* yelping and scrambling about in promiscuous piles. It was in short a summer evening in New Orleana. ? II.?EU LA LIE. In' the old Moorish quarter of tho city *tood a large mansion, or castle, so to speak ; with hi 'h walls and grated windows, which repelled aliae the inquisitive gaze of the populace, and the occasional bullets that oame whiziing along from the neighboring affray* and duel*. Within, however, all was a paradise All that wealth could proenre, or taste devise, was here concentrated, as if by the magic of a genii. In the centcr of the tesselated court-yard acros* the silvery ppray of a fountain, giving life to the little rainbows above, and sustenance to the eel* and polliwogs that wiggled in the marble basin balow. From the surrounding terrace a grove of tropical treos and plants dis pensed their fragrance and shade in the most voluptuous sweetness?the toweringpino-apple, the wide-spread magnolia, the white-blossomed live-oak and the stately lemon, with a thick face-work of pumpkin and cocoa-nut vine* net ting them together and dangling their golden fruit in evening breeze. In the midst of this Inxury specially dwelt its aoul. Eulalie?the beautiful quadroon Eulalie. a slender, dark-eyed, tawny-skinned, etherial l>eing, whose sweetness reveled halo-like around her. Dressed in a loose oriental costume, which revealed the exquisite contour of her matchless form, and reclining on a cushion of gold embroidered velvet, at the brink of the marble basin, the beautiful maiden amused herself by alternately feeding and caressing a folden macaw, which sat perched upon one of er lovely shoulders, whilst with her delicately uiuk-nailed toes she plashed the water in the basin, and sported with tb? polliwogs. Behind her stood a sable African girl, of a dark black color, fanning her in mute respectful silence with an enormous turkey-tail plume. " Bobo ! iaaued from between Eulalie'* ru by-set pearls. " \ es. missus and the African bent over to ber " 11a* he oome yet, Bobo ?" asked tha seraph ic voice. r ??aau* !*' was the response . Then go and call that organ-grinder that I bear; and. Bobo, eo to aunty at the corner, and bring me sonlf pop-corn, candy, and a bot tle of nigger beer." ^ es. missus ??' and Bobo went. HI?TIIE GAMING SALOON.

Thit School will be re-opened on the 1st of Sep tember, In57, for tho reception of Boarders and a few day Scholars. Tho object in view is to extend to all who apply and are admitted, a thorough and useful education. No pains will be witl.held from giving the youiig Ladies such instructions as will adapt them for every duty and emergency of life. While the ornamental branches will hot lie neglected, the solid and fundamental principles of heart and head education will be the special objects of asiduous at tention. Female education has now taken such a firm hold on public attention, that, to proclaim its advantages, would be to portray a degree of ignorance not com patible witli modern improvement. The elevating influence of female education is felt and acknowl edged by every admirer of female excellence ; hes itate then, no longer, to bestow on your daughters those advantages that are indispensibie to their ad vancement andsuccess through life. As the School increases, the number of Teachers wtll be also increased ; thereby securing every aux iliary to the rnpid advancement of the Student. Every effort will be put forth to maintain the high tone and character of the School. Appropriate hours will be set apart for studr and daily exercise. The discipline will be mild and per suasive, but very firm. Two Saturdays are appoint ed every month for the girls to visit and make pur chases. The Gospel is preached from four different pulpits,alfording to each th<* privilege of attending the Church of her choice. No influence will be ex erteU to control tho religious pieindices of the pu pils. While practical Christianity will form the t>asis of their instruction, the selection of Churches an l Sabliath Schools will l>e submitted to the docision of parents and pupils?the variety of religious priv ileges here, will not fail to oifer s'atirfaction to all. No Scholar will he taken for a shorter term than live montha admission will beobtainrdany timedur lnt the session, and charged only from thetiiueof entrance.
