The Sailor Boy.
The moon shines bright.
And the bark bounds light,
s the stag bounds o'er the lee :
We love the strife
Of a sailor's life,
And we love our dark blue sea.
Now high, now low.
To the depths we go,
Now rise on the surge again :
We make a track
O'er the ocean's back,
Aud play with the hoary mane.
Fearless we face
The storm in the chase,
When the dark clouds fly before it :
And meet the shock
Of the fierce Siroc,
Though Death breathes hotly o'er it.
The landsman may quail
At the shout of the gale,
Peril's the sailor's joy :
Wild as the waves
Which his vessel braves.
Is the lot of the sailor boy.

The following is an adveuture iu the his

fitted and popular Democratic Senator
from Illinois. It is -from the X. Y. " Spir

original and amusing member of the wes

Not so the Judge he had come on busin

and no time to be lost. He was about

the very letter. Hence, in this country,
as we understand the matter, there is no
such thintr as a divided alleiriance. The
only allegiance which the citizen owes,
is an allegiance to the State of his birth
or of his adoption. And the Federal
r, i 1 .i
Government has consequently no right
to dictate -rerms to a btate, for the
State is its superior its sovereign, to
whom it owes fealty ; and the moment

tional law, the sovereign may speak

whatever, to explain it3 duty to it, or

So, if a State wbhesto eecede from the jl
Union, the servant ha3 no neht to call
hia master to account for the act, either
by impertinent words or stiil more im
pertinent force. Hence, our plenipo
tentiaries to foreign court3 do not repre- j
seat the sovereignty ot the Union tor
it has no sovereignty but they repre
sent the sovereignty of the State,, act
ing by and "through the Uuion. The
subject is susceptible of a variety of il
lustrations, but these may sufiice.
We conclude, therefore, that the first
step towards the formation cf a Southern
Confederacy, is the secession from the
Union of a single State, and then the
secession, one by one,- of the other
StLtss, who may choose afterwards to
enter into the Confederacy.

Saturday Visiter, gives the following
opinion of the new di c3s;
".We never thought dress of so much
importance as -to be worth any great
act of. moral heroism. We would not
subject ourself to the rude ' gaze of a
mob on the street, or the insolence of
ruffians or boys, for any thing less than
the salvation of a soul. No dress could
be comfortable or convenient lo us
which would gather half a dozen of
boy3 to stare at us. We should never
think of beingjnartyr for such slight
cause as thp pattern of a new frock;
nor have we any need to be so, for nei
ther health nor convenience requires it.
