Wk have long withed to have, Tor our own library, & uniform I edition of our favorite aurhora. lochia greaariuuv world, ten thoatand may nave together what one cannot have alone, and we wiah oar i??d>r? to join and rive u? our coveted library ay having oua like it thetnarlvea.

We i a?e insensibly arrived at this idriby very bliod steps We tried iu vain for seara, to liou a publisher who would uldert?ke a new edition of our t> .ems?though I hey were coin- | pletely eat of print, anil though (it seemed to us I ttwre war a demand or them wh oh migh' j >(y the edition. Akamai advice w? thought we might at le at furnish our frienda co.irs to read, by publishing them iu an extra ol the Mirror, lor a price that would joat nay the rxpeuae of printing and circulating. To our no email aatomaiin>ent tl r ordara fur them cave in no rapidly whi'e they were in press, that we published a very large edition, which ia atill telling freely, and it thm occurred t> ua very rt'iirallv that one of two thing* must be true either the pub'ishera were perfect Cormorants *t to ih* profi'?th-y expucted from b ioIh, or else ihey were not al ways infallible judges at to wbat works would sell. Th* ne?t ( thought was an easy one. Could we not, out of our own better judgment and smaller expectations as to pr<y4f, pub'i-h as handsome and cheap editions of olAer autli re, whose works were out, now, easily come at ' " Let us try !" said Eulerprue.

We would ?sy, en passant,, of "Pencilliiigs," thnt only one-third of them have ever been re-published, either here or in Kuglaud. The first Kuglish edition (the fifth edition is now salliug well in London) was printed from a broken set of the old Mirror, which had found its way out there, and the author being abseut iu France, even that imperfect copy was mueh reduced bv the proof-readers. The Ainericau edition {long ago ost' of print) was a litvral copy of this incomplete English oue,and now, for the firat time. Pencilling! by the Way" will be printed in a handsome and cninp'ete edition. Of coarse, dear reader, we did not intend the presumption (the Genetal and 1) of putting our own worka at the beginning of a "Library of Favorite Authors." This is explained above. But we shall so arraugn it, by giving you an extra titlepage, that you can bind up ir leave out, us or others, at your pleasure.

February should be called the month of hope, for it is invariably more enjoyable than the first nominal fruition?more spring-like than the first month ot spring. This is a morning that makes the hand OMUt and the fingers spread?a morning that should ha consecrated to sacred idleness. I should like to exchange work with any out-ofdoors man?even with a driver of an omnibus? specially with the farmer tinkering his fencesCities are convenient places of refuge from winter and bad weather, but one longs to get out into the country, like a sheep from a abed, wall the first warm gleam of suitBtiine. 1 see that Moore lias virtually turned to come down from liia long ladder of fame?hia publishers, Longmans, having made a final collection of hit! works man elaborate edition, and prefixed thereto a picture of an old man?Tom Moore as he is! It is melancholy to see this portrait. The sparse hair, made-the-most-ot?the muscles of the face retreating from the habitual expression?the lamp within siill unconscious of losing brightness, yet the glass over it stained and cracked. Moore should never have been painted, after thirty. Tliis picture is like a decrepit cupid?wholly out of character. His poetry is all youth, its very faults requiring youthful feeling for an apology ; and to know that he has grown old?that fie is bald, wrinkled, venerable?is some unnatural hocus-pocus?some hideous metamorphosis we would rather not have teen even in melodrama. Moore lias not sobered away, twilight-wise, as he might have done, llis wit and song have kept admiration so warm around him that he has forgotten his sun was setting?that it was time the shadows of his face grew longer?time that his pen leaned toward life's downward horizon. The expression on this lace of frisky sixty, is of a flogged-up hilarity that is afraid to relax. Moore will look lacetiousand dining-outish in his coffin. 1 see that Wallack has added lecturing, as a new branch, to his profession, and is very successful. Mr. Harry, the stage manager of the Park, is to try on the same experiment to-night at the Society Library. "Two strings to your bow" is a good economy in any profession, and there are sundry professions the duties of which do not interfere, fur instance, with authorship. A men who sheuld reuii two hours beloregoing to he<l, and'(rite for the first two hours altersuurisu, would give tima-^nd attention enough to any literary pursuit, while the bus'ness part of the day, and a good part of thelevening, won If he stillileft unoccupied.

It appears by ihe English papers that Madane Catalnni Indignantly denies being deed ! She is still living, and capable of enjoying "good living" at her villa, near Florence. The American story, which went the rounds ol the papers some time since, of a man whose capacious throat hod "swallowed a plantation and fifty negroes, finds its counterpart in the villa and its dependants which have come out or the threat of Madame (Jatalani. I was fortunate enough to enjoy much of her hospitality when in Italy, and there are few establishments that I have seen where the honors were done with a more princely liberality and good taste. She was then, as she is probably still, a well-preserved and handsome woman, of majestic mien ami most aifable manners, and at her own little parties siie sang whenever asked, and as well as ever she had done in public. She seemed to me never to have huen intoxicated with her brilliant successes, and to have had no l>noin of applause left like a thirst in her ears?as is the case with popular favorites too often. Her husband, M. Vulabreque, was a courteous man and a fond husband, and their children were on an equal feoting of social position with the young nobility of Florence. Most strangers who see any thing of the society of that delightful city, come away with charming remembrances of Malame ( ntalani. Washington's Birthday is growing into a temperance anniversary, probably much to the pleasure, and a little to the surprise, of the distinguished ghost. There was a grand temperance celebration at the Tnbernacle last evening, at which the eloquent author of the airs of Palestine, Rev. John Pierpont, delivered an address. By tho.way, it is an overlooked feather in the cap ot temperance, that we owe to it the pleasant invention of kissing. In the course .f my rea-linp I ?.? r- folio.

Now. by restoring the muah-abused and perverted kiss to its original mission, and making of it the sacred apostle of inquiry that it was originally designed for, it strikes me that the temperance committees would have many more " active members," and the cause would assuredly grow on public favor. 1 submit the hint to that admirable enthusiast, Mrs. Child. There are two establishments in the city ol New York which should be visited by those who require stretchers :o their comprehension ot luxury?Weekt'j Furniture Warehouse, behind the Astor, and Titfany's Bijou-shop, at the corner of Warrea street and Broadway.

The fancies of every age and country are represented?those of the F.ll/.ahethian era and the ornate fashion of Louis XIV. predominant,.though tables ami sofas'on Egyptian models ire more sumptuous. At so much cost, they ought to put the mind at ease as well as the body. And, Tiy the way, the rombining of couch and chair in one (now so fashionable) would have pleased the Roman damci, whose husbands kept chairs (or women and moarners--a man's sitting upon a chair (in preference to a couch) being considered a received sign of deep mourning or poverty. Few people can trust their taite to go into such an immense warehouse as Weeks', and select (in one style, awlj that style suitable to their house, condition, and manner ol living) the furniture for an establishment. It would he a rood vocation for a reduced gentleman to keep taste to let, holding himself ready to take orders, and execute 'hem at discretion, according to the suitabilities of the employer.

Seeing in your paper of Tuesday the publication of the birth of uiy infant clulil, 1 beg leave to inform yon that an error has been committed, us legards Mrs. itagge having no medical attendance, owing to the closure of the prison at that time of night. My benefactor, Mr. Malaclii Fallon, (who under such circumstances, would never, and under no consideration whatever, hesitate ot letting the iron doors in the middle of the night he opened,) has showed to nie through every thing, anu in spite ot a great many persons, und iny enemies, all the humanity I ever could have expected of a stranger ; and the keeper who was on the watch, hearing me knocking at the door of mv prison cell, attended to me iu a moment. My wife gave, quite unexpected, and in less than a quarter ot an hour, birth to the infant; and doctor Macready, who was then sent for, came without the slightest doubt, in the short period of ten minutes time, and helped my wile with his usual skilful and medical assistance ; and every day attends to the young mother ami child, not alone with great interest,hut with fatherly protection; and lie is the man who was kind enough to give to that unfortunate, though happy mother, (who stands destitute upon the world, in a foreign land, and having no other protector than myself to look upon) some baby's clothes, until she could provide for some more. My dear Mr Fallon?Of course, what can I say of linn, nothing?because the heart feels more than the mouth enn utter. Hut this is certain, 1 respect him as a man, who will certainly receive the blessings of God for every thing lie has shown to me in my so puiidnl mid distressed circumstances, in which I am placed for the present. As regards my case, 1 have employed other Counsel, with my faithful and honorable Mr. Graham. llis name is James M. Smith, Jr., who came yesterday and offered my wife a more comtortable home, (although we have it as comfortable us a prison cell allows us to be) if the Doctor should think it proper to remove her, and whatever expense it should be, he would, with the greatest pleasure, furnish. Now 1 ask any individual where a client shall find such a Counsel, who out of charity, generosity and humanity, and with disinterested views, shall make such proposals, and assist, his client, even with money, (as he has done to trie) from whom he has never received a single penny yet, but only out of feeling of a true Christian, interests himself in behalf of a poor and unfortunate little family ? i I hope that Mr. Smith will not be angry with me for taking the liberty of making his generosity known ; but I think the act too honorable to pass by without any feeling of the most sincere and true gratitude. Good God ! what a diflerence! Some Counsel sell their clients lor the sake of money, and the others tor the sake of their own satisfaction, are happy to help to defend the innocent. My dear wile and child are hearty and doing remarkably well, and 1 am exceedingly obliged to you lor your otherwise most correct statement as regards the facts of the case. If it is not too much trouble, you would confer un everlasting obligation by publishing these few lines for me. And believe me, with true respect, Gear Sir, your well wisher, and ob't serv'l, JIknry M. Hague. City Prison, February 23d, 1844. P.

In every civilised nation, we believe, except Kugland, and those countries her former dependencies, which derive their system of property from her, the iriwi are much more humane and juit towards womtn. And the condition of women in those countries, in other respects, than this right of property, hut growing out ol it, is less helpless, more seldom visited by cruel punishment, less dependent on the caprice of men, than in Kngland and this country. At this moment there probably is not in this Htate, ten in ten thousand of the married women who have any other interest in tha common property, than a vested right and perpetual use. in the duster, the scrubbing brush, and the cocking stove. The condition ol one hnll of the human beings who constitute the people of the State, has a tendency to aggravate one of tne evils of American society. It mokes the accidents of speculation press with the heaviest weight upon the most helpless sea. It makes ruin irremeiliuhie. It brings it home to the household, and forces it to uproot the ties ol farm! v. Women urn not speculators, nor gamblers, nor spendthrifts. They are prudent and cautious, e\ en to timidity. The right to property is with them, the right to educate their children hcfittingiy, and to gratify a law moderate social wants, with the earnings ol their own industry, or with means derived from iiiberltBnrr. (five to American mothers this right, anil society w ill have obtained a new preservative element?an element of the utmost value? purchased only by a measure of the simplest ana most obvious justice. Kvery year this subject is brought to the attention of the I.rghluture, as it has Wn during the present session by Mr. Votings, ol (Queens-, and each year it is dismiss r I without any action. The policy, as well as justice, ol remedying this great social evil is admitted, but nothing is done. The legislators ata the representatives of the ?,* who profit by the evil. They are gallant, tender, chivalrous?every thing but just. They will die for the women, but they will not part with their chance of a life lease in their property. So they dismiss a,l legislative action by calling the " fair petitioners" angels, and 1 idding them go scrub ?.Hihnny ?1llat.
