Br J. BAYARD TAYLOR. " Sister nnd brother wound their arms around each other, and the golden light came streaming in, ana icn upon mem Kicked together. "The poldcn rinnleonthe wall came back again.and nothing else stirred in the room." Domliey tf Son, Through the curtain poured the sunlight Willi a sudden gush of joy, Where Uhjii his bed of weakness Lay the dying little Imy. On the rising airs of Evening Balmy pound' of Summer came, And a voice amid their music Seemed to call him by his name ! And the golden waves were dancing Oil the Hooded Chamlier wall On the sunny hair ot Florence And the brow of little Paul! As the sunset's tide receding, Ebbed ngain into the sky, Passed ihelnint hue Irom his features And the lustre Irom his eye ; As if up the rosy surges Of that shining river's flow, Went his spirit to the angel. Who had clniined it long ago ! Fonder still, and full of yearning, Seemed to come e'er gentle call, And the throb ol lile grew fainter In the heart of little Paul. But the fond arms of a sister, Like a link around him lay, Chaining tack his tlulteriiig spirit To tlie love which was its stay, And Its own weak arms were folded In a clinging dear embrace. Till his cheek and dewey forhead Rested gently on her lace. Slowly sank Ins weary eyelids; One laint breathing ili.it was all, And no more the kiss of Florence Thrilled the lips of little Paul. Through his childish world he wandered Like n stranger, slill and lone, For the depth ot Manhood's leeling Had within his bosom grown. Yet tlie hue whose meek entreaty, In his patient features smiled, Gave at Inst the sainted Mother, To the happy cherub child ! Sad and silent through the chamber Crept the shadows up the wall ; Cold against the cheek of Florence Grew the cheek of little Paul ! a lUolf Stow. It was about eleven o'clock at nin-l.t. when a lnng howl was heard, which sounded so close and startling, that we with one accord suspend ed our work. Attlio same moment, old George, who was thp sentry, called to in. A dozen enormous wolves were prowling about the out side edge ol the I right circle thrown by our lan terns. Fe.ir of the light kept them off; but each moment they were growing bolder, and it was easy to Bee that they would lKt bo long without attacking- us. j I looked to tlie priming ot my caroine and pistols. Ivan was similarly armed ; but the c.irriers had only their pikes, hatchets, and knives. With these weapons, however, they uoicny awaiteu trie attacK. Half an hour passed in this slate of suspense, the wolves occasionally advancing a pace or two into the circle ol light, uut always retreat ing again. At length one of them approached near, that I asked George if it would not be advisable to reward his temerity witli a bul let. 'Ye,' was the answer; 'if you are certain of hitting him.' ' Why must I be certain ? ' Because, if you kill him his companions will amuse themselves with eating him. To be ore, added he to hunsell, ' il thev once taste blood they will be mad lor more.' ' The mark is so good, said 1, ' I can hardly miss linn. Fire, then, in God's name !' returned George ; ' all this must end one way or the other. Before tho words were out of his mouth, I fired, and the wolf writhed in agony nn the snow. In an instant half a dozen wolves darted for ward, and seizing their comrade, carried him off in the darkness. The howling now increased, and it was evi dent moro wolves were arming. At length there was a moment's silence. ' Do von hear the horses? said George ; ' how they neigh and paw ! It s a signal foi Us to be prepared. ' I thought tho wolves were gone,' replied I j they nave lelt on howling. ' No; thev have finished their repast, and are preparing foran attack. Here they come.' At that moment, eight or ten wolves, that, in the imperfect, flickering light, looked as big as , i r 1 I r J1t.lC.OnV?, lU.llbU .. -l.u, ui vie I ileavonng to pass under mo wagons, bounded , ""'V l ' boldlv un them.

But apparently no vital part was touched, and the wolf had broken the pike with his teeth ; so that for a moment tho man opposed to him had nothing but a pole wherewith to de fend himself. Tlie second wolf was scrambling along the cart, and was on the point of attack ing him, when 1 sprung from one wagon to the other, and fired one of my pistols into the ani- mars car. tie leu iieaa uy me side oi ins com panion, who was rolling in the snow and making violent euons 10 tear me uronen lance irom ins wound. - Meantime, Ivan was hard at work, and I heard a carbine or two pUtol shots, Avhich told me that our adversaries were as warmly received on the left as on the right of the line. An in stant later, four wolves again crossed the circlo of light; but tins tune in lull retreat; and at the same moment, to our no small astonishment, three others, that wo had thought dead or mor tally wounded, raised themselves up and follow, led their companions, leaving largo tracks of uiood behind them. Three carcasses remained upon the field of battlo. Load again, and quickly, cried George. 'I know their wavs: thev will ho back aoain di rectly.' And the old man pointed with his fin ger into the darkness. I listened and heard dis tant bowlings replying to the nearer ones. What we had as yet had was a mere sklr- inlsh ; the general engagements was yet tn come. ' Look behind von ?' cried a voice. I tnrnf il and saw two firry eves gleaming on the top of Iho snow wall In the rear, before I could draw a trigger, the wolf cave a lean, and falling mint one of the horses, struck his fangs Into Ills inroai. xnree men lelt their waenns. 'There Is but one wolf,' cried George, 1 and ono man is enough. Let the others remain at their posts. "wo of the men resumed their places. Tlie third crept upon his hands and knees among the horses, who, in their terror, were plunging vio lently, and throwing themselves against Hie carts by which thev were surrounded. The next instant I saw the Lrloam of a knife blade, and the wolf let go the horse, which tcared upon his hind legs, the blood streaming from his throat. A dark mass was rolling and strug gling on the ground ; it was the man and wolf. At the end of a few seconds the man stood nn. JMvid, said lie to one or his comrades, ' come and help me carry away this carrion. The horses won't be quiet while it lies here.' They drairsed tliu wolf towards George's war. on, and then raising it from the ground, the old man took it by the hind legs, as though it had been a hare, and threw it outside the line of carls. ' Well, Nicholas," said Gcortre. to tlie sue cessfull combattant, ' don't you take your place ngnin i ' No, replied the other ; ' 1 have enough as it is 1' 'Are von wounded?' cried Louise, oneninu tlie door of the telegue. ' I belive I have killed mv last wolf.' answer. cd the poor fellow in a faint voice. I irave Georirc mv barbine. and hastened to the wounded man. A part of his jaw was torn away, and the blood (lowed abundantly from a large wound in his neck. 1 for a moment fear ed that tho carotrd artcrv was omened, and. scarcely knowing whether I did right or wrong, i seized a nandlul ot snow an applied it to the wound. The sufferer uttered a cry and fainted away. ' Oli God !' cried Louise. ' have mercy upon him !' ' To your posts 1' shouted George in a stento rian voice : ' the wolves are upon us. I left the wounded man in Louise's care, and urnped upon tho cart. 1 can give no details of the combat that fnl- lowed. 1 had too much occupation myself to attend to what my comrades were doing. Wo I we attached bv at cast twentv wolves at once. After discharging my two pistols, I armed my s.'lfwith an axe George gave me. The fight lasted nearly a quarter of un hour, add certainly the srene was one of the most terrible it is pos sihle to imagine. At length, nnd just as I was splitting the skull of a wolf that hung on to one of the wheels of my wagon, a shout of triumph resounded all along our line, and again our enemies fled ; but this time it was for good. ihrce of our men wcra wounded, besides Nicholas, who was still alive, but in a desperate . condition. We were obliged to shoot tho horse 1 that had been torn bv tho wolf. By daybreak a nussace was opened through the wall of snow, and we resumed our journey. The evening of the same day we reached a small villagu where we found an inn, that under any other circumstances would have been pro nounced abominable, but which appeared a pa lace after three such days had passed. 1 bo following morning wo parted from our friends, the carriers, leaving George five hundred rubles todivido among them.

As this mo?t distinguished of living statesmen lias just anivcd in London, and is likely to re main" for some time amoiK'lSi readers may like in have nt hand a brief note of his nublic career a career moro remarkable in its pros perty as well as In Its downfall than that of any other living man, Louis 1'liilippo alone except ed. Indeed, it is more remarkable than even thatofthn ex-Kinir himelf, both In the heichl to which it liflcd him, and the wholly unlooked- for suddenness of bis downfall ! lor it is to be remarked that while Metternich, during his prosperity, stood on a loftier height than ever Louis Philippe did, and for a period of double the duration of tho latler's reign, he had no claims to place to support him there but his own capacity j and, on the other hand, his fall is at tributable to no fault or error of his own, but. on the contrary, to that noble faith in his prin ciple! or polity ana ins system oi ruie, hi which he has never once faltered or swerved during an uninterrupted reicn of more than thirty years a reign not over one country or people alone, but virtually over three-fourths of tho ci vilized portion of continental Europe. Metternich was bom at Coblcntz, on the Rhine, on the 15th of .May, 1773, of an ancient and noble family to the younger but only eA- ting branch ot which the sutijfct in our notice longs. He was educated at the University ol Strasbourg, under the direction ot a pnvate tutor, sent with him by his family ; and several of the boyish friendships which lie contracted during that early period staved bv him tlirouirl life; l)rin private society Metternich has evei been extremely popular, no less from tho lively piquancy of his wit than the naive and frank simplicity of bis manner and bearing. Among the school friendships he contracted at Strasbourg are said to have been those which he maintained to the last with the lato Earl Grey and benjamin Constant. At the close of his academical studies, young Metternich made the usual ' grand tour,' which was, at that time, considered de rigiter with young men of his rank in life; at the conclusion of which, he returned to Vienna, and, sliortlj afterwards, married a daughter of the famous i'rince Kaumtz, the most remarkable man ol that day remarkable, no less lor liis strange eccentricities than for liis sterling talents. fllcllcrnicira first entrance Into public Hie was as Secretary of Embassy at the Congress of Rastadt ; nnd even ut that early period of his

diplomatic career, he is said tn have shown ex traordinary powers of politicHV forosight, parti cularly as.regarded theXittirjJortui.-os of Napo leon, wuo was men ai vie ncigni oi nis power and glory. Metleruich was next attached to Count Sta dion, first al Berlin, and afterwards at St. 1'c tersburgh; and these preparatory initiation- into tho very heart of Eurfrpean diplomacy seem to have fully fitted him, even at tho early uge ol twenty-three, for an appointment on which it may bo said that the ultimate late or rallier, let us mrc say, the penultimate fate of conti nental Europe mainly depended, we allude to the Embassy to Paris, to which Metternich was appointed in I80R, just after tlie Treaty of Pres. burg; consequently, at an epoch most impor tant to Austria. We have alluded to those personal qualities in Metternich which secured to him through life the friend-hip of his buoyish d lys. Those qualities did still more for linn now, for they at nco faciualcd and fixed tho personal favor and confidence of Napoleon, and enibled the young ambassador to gain and exerci-o an influence over him that no foreigner ever before did, and to turn that inguence to an account that may be said to be felt cen at the present day. In a word. Metternich succeeded incompletely nnoo- winking tlie Emperor as to the ulterior objects and designs of Antria, and thin enabled the latter no mature and consolidate those plum and nrenarations which (bv tho heroic help ol Ln- gland, be it always understood) finally brought about the downfall of the usurper. It is not a little remarkable, and may be cited as an extreme case, in illustration of the art of diplomacy as then understood and practiced in Europe, t'hat the ftinous, or rallier tlm infamous marriage of Maria Louisa with Napoleon is note understood to havo been neither more nor less that a subtld trick of Metternich's, to bring about that downfall which it unquestionably did ulti inately ellVct.

Under the new act such language Is mado felony, and the nenallv is transportation for a term of years, or for life, as tho judge in insiiiscreiion may sco lit. il ill is not allowed under this act, and Mitchell has consequently been ordered to prison. There does not appear in navo been much excitement when he wa arrested, and the organs of power boast that the people would with indifference see him trans ported. We cannot believe this. It must b,' false that the population of Dublin would stand by quietly and see consigned to a lifejpng ban ishment a man whoeonly fault IsVieir-immo. laling struggle to give them the blessings ol liberty.

JOHN MITCHEL. The Execution Committee of the CiiiDoGO Harbor and River Cowentiox, or such por tion of them as could be convened nn a short notice met on iuesday, at the A-lnr House. Ablmtt Lawrence, Esq., ol Boston, in Iho chair. The dralt ol a memorial to Congress, on the general subject of river and harbor improve ments, and 111 special reliitation or some recent doctrines put forth in opposition to tho power ol Congress ill this behalf, was presented by Mr. J. C. -Spencer, to whom has been as-aimed Ihe chargd of preparing said report, and of receiving and digesting mo reports oi various silb-cnin. mittees, in elucidation of the commerce and Iiu. sinrss of Iho lakes and mors, and of the ditli cullies and dangers, by reason of Insufficient harbors and obstructed rivers, in the prosecu tion of that business. The Report was carefully considered and unanimously adopted, and a committee was de puted to proceed to Washington, as soon as the signatures of tho respective members of the Ex ecutive Committee should be obtained, and lay the memorial before Congress. It is, wo say without fear of being disproved by the eventual judgment of the public, the a blest and most original argument in favor of the power and duty of Congress, to aid the com merce among the States Try harbor and river im provement and the most complete refutation nl tho nation mat mis wnrK rrn, or lawtullv may, bo accomplished by tho action of tho se parate States that has been framed. We trust this memorial, backed by the copi. nus und convincing statistics which accompany it, will avail to prompt Congress to do what is so much needed, for tho benefit to the harbors and rivers of our land. iV. 1'.

If so, (and our respect for and confidence in the integrity and patriotism ol the National Convention do not permit us to doubt nn the subject) we certainly acquiesce in the result, and shall givo to General Taylor oursincereandcordi.il support. It is surely unnecessary for us to say that Gen.
