She, "the beautiful mether of a beautiful offspring," has, 1 think, no insignificant oiaisn upon your regard. To a recital of her doings, yon will, peihaps listen. Venerable in herself, from her age and respec tability, she acquires each day renewed glory, from the honors heaped upon her children. Scarce a corner of the civilized world, but offers a home to one or more of her numerous and scattered progeny. And the brilliant suocessot many of bar sons, borne on the wing* of fame from all quarters oi our land, tefiucted back upon her, ttieir common parent, shed around htr an imperishable halo of giS'y. Not that her sons sing their own praises. Ills a fowl aspersion upon our race, to a sert this to be our theme, when we crow.

Von will soon be called upon to recognise Cambridge as one of the sisterhood of cities. She has petitioned tor a charter, tor no better reason, we believe, than that odo or two of her leading spirits, not content with the glory of " Selectmen," aro ambitious to write themselves " Mayor." The approaching inauguration of Mr. Everett is the all-engrossing topic of conversation. The 99th of April is the day toward whiah all eya* are turned. Our neighbor Boston, too?throughout her ranks of besuty aod fashion?manifests a lively xeal in the matter; though for the present her attention ia distracted by the trial of Tirrell. The exercises on the oocasion are expected to be of a high order of excellence. An English oration ia to be pronounoed in the village church by the new Pre sident ; another, in way of salutation, by a graduate member of the college ; and one in Latin by Mr. L , who stands so deservedly high in the Univeraity as s classical scholar.
