A L.OV13 LETTER IN IllIYMB.
Most worthy of estimation :
Induced by the reputation
You possess in the nation,
I have a strong inclination
To become your relation ;
And if tin J declaration
Meets your approbation,
I shall make preparation
To remove my situation
To a more convenient station
To profess my admiration
Of your high qual ficaticn.
Now if such an oblation
And this supplication
Be worthy of observation
" .And obtain conur.is ration,
'Twill b; an agsrandization
Dcyond all calculation.
Ot the joy and exultation
Of Yours, rsANs DiasisfVLATiON.
Oh I bring me flower, y deart....
And wreathe them in my hair,
The beautiful the fair at out s
And let them wither there
"Wild rose?, and the fragile lily
The blossoms of a day
And twine th'.mon the brow of one
As per slang as they.
I may not see theei growing
I:i w:ld wood or in g'.en ;
I may not tread upon the green
And fragrant earth again ;
-Yet leave the casement open,
That the blue and LUf3ed sky
The tree t'.ps and the pleasant hdlS,
May greet my closing eye !?
And gather ye around mo,
The friends whom I have loved
The eyes that ever shone with mine
The hearts which I have proved.
In calm unweepin sorrow,
Oh! let thjlcveJ draw near,
And let each low familiar tone
Fail oa tilt; dying ear.
I know that death is near me,
And yet Pfcar it not ;
It is but slTedJing sunshine on
The shadows of my lot.
A welcome from the spirits
Of the pure and sm-forgiven

"Call you lhat talking?" exclaimed she.
"lie's a dull, drowsy proser: his talk is like
the buzziug of a bee in a bottle. And then
he has but one subjec t to talk about prints,
prints, prints, eternally prints ! his collection
of prints! his Marc Antonio! his Al'nuit Diner!
his Baitolozzi! Pagan ini would play divine
ly upon one string for a quarter of an houi at
a time ; but then ho could play upon the other
three quite as well. Now your Mr Brumby
has but one string to his fiddle, and even
upon that he's a very bad fiddler. Then, not
only can he talk of nothing else, but he will
uot allow any other person a choice ot sub
ject he cuts through them rudely and im
patiently interrupts them with a something or
other about his eternal engravings. A little
of that subject would be very well in its way;
but to run it to death as he does ! Oh, the
tiresome man! The. best couversers and
he has met some good ones at our table ate
killed dead by him. One is anxious to listen
to them, but, no ; no chance for conversation
where Mr Brumby is."
"But, my love," said I (still resolved not to
give him up) "he does not always interrupt
it. On the contrary he will often, when
another person is in possession of the at
tention of the table, politely pretend to fall
"It was upon such an occasion," said my
wile, laughing, "that poor Hook stopped shoit
in the midst of one of his liveliest sallies, and
cried 'Pray, silence, ladies aud gentlemen,
fey- auore from Mr Brumbv."
"But really, my dear Clara, you must al
low," said I, (determined not to give him up)
scenes must not be dwelt upon.
It so happened that Brumbv and I were
the only persons in the visiter's room we
had it entirely to ourselves. What an oppor
tunity for an easy, unconstrained confabula
tion! And what a variety of pleasant topics
were open to us! Parliament and the income
tax; the Opera, at the most brilliant period of
its season, and all the singers quite well
enough not to sing; morning concerts, Wuch company as Brumby's
Thnlberg, and the projected Society tor td
Prevention of Cruelly to Pianofortes ; our
English threatres-royal, and the crowds that
nightly rush to the French piny; the Royal
Academy exhibition, and Mr Hume's patriotic
suggestion that the R. As should be compel
led to throw open the doors gratis, and pay
all the expenses of the establishment out of
the "tottle ot the whole;" copy-right, and
rights of every body in it, except the author
together with "v-rowner's-qtiest-law" upon the
subject; the In a word, topics were end
less. But Brumby had just purchased a Rem
brandt etching, and Oh, my stars!
Here, be it observed, that my wife truly
characterized the talk of Brumby, when she
compared it to the drowsy, monotonous buzz
mg ot a bee in a bottle. A word is occasion
ally detected . the rest is one unmitigated
"Brum-brum-brum early impression brum-

when a woman Mr Uewdney's her husband,
or a man Mrs Dewdneys his wife, there is
some dissatisfaction in the case so, at least,
was it in the present. And all about what?
Why, about so-dull a companion -no: an
ui-companion, as Brumby.
" Wre had been married nearly two years,
and this disagreement, slight as it was, was
the first that had occulted between us. How,
indeed, could it have been otherwise? My
clear Clara's temper is the sweetest in the
world , as for mine but ask Clara. She
had left me alone in the parlor, (wnerc we
had just finished breakfast) brooding over
this om first quar quarrel? away with the
hateful word! misunderstanding? even that
is too strong a term. She had left me, then,
brooding over our little tiff ay, that's it ; 1
had borne it for nearly two minutes ; I was
iu agonies; I could endure it no louger. I
rang the bell.
"John," said I, "go to the drawing-room"
I heatd her pacing the room aboyc ; and
the state of her mind, poor dear! was - pain
fully indicated by her hasty and irregular step.
"John," said I, "go to the drawing-room,
and tell your mistress 1 wishto.ce her." ;
She came, her smiles shining through her
tears she knew that 'tw-js for reconciliation
I bad summoned her. Wo rushed into each

r-"GV TOrer,- love; saicihe"!
Such a couple! Adam and Eve before they
partook of that unlucky desert, perhaps but
siuce then nothing like,us!
"Then you won't ask that Mr Brjmby to
dine here to-day," said my wife.
Obseive the significant " that". Never is
that pronoun so applied, whether to man, dog,
woman, cat, or child, but it is intended to
convey the idea of dislike. See
"Send the dog out of tho room."
There iss nothing in that which any dog
excepting some very thin-skinned dog indeed
rould take as an offensive personality; the
dog is momentarily in the way that's all.
But "Seud that dog out of tho room."
Here the dog is unequivocally marked as
an object of dislike it is most pointedly in
sulted and no dog of becoming spirit but
would quit, not tho room only, but the house;
nor ever return to it, though it should see (he
whole town placarded with a guinea reward
lor its recovery.
By "that Mr Brumby," then, it is clear that

The following most extraordinary case has
been communicated to the Medical (.jazettp
by Sir Henry Mar.sh, M. D., London. Thfe
patient was a young lady, described as L. A !.
whose disease terminated, fatally : !
"It was ten days previous to L. A.'s deatfc
that T (Sir" Henry Mar:sh)-observed a very ex'
traordinary light, whichdemed, darting about
the face, and illuminating all around her head
flashing Very tnuch like an aurora boreal is.
She was in deep decline, and had that day

much for an hoarje&hd made her so ueryous
lhat she would not suffer ine to leave her for a
moment, that I mightaKiise her up quickly in;
case of a return of-this painful sensation.
After she settled for the-night, I lay down be
side her, and it was then this luminous ap
pearance suddenly commenced. Fler maid,
was sitting up beside the bed; aud I wished
her to shade the light, as it would awaken
Louisa. She told me the light was perfectly
shaded. I then said : What can this light
be which is flashing on Miss Louisa's face ?'
The maid looked very mysterious and inform
ed me she had seen that tight before. And it
was frpm no candle. I then inquired when
she had perceived it ? She said that morn
ing; and it Had dazzled her eye?, but she had
said nothing about it, as ladies always consid
er servants, superstitious. However, after
watching it myself half an hour, I got up, and
saw that the candle was in a position from
whichthis peculiar light could not have come,
nor, indeed, was it like that of light; it was
more silvery, like the reflection of moonlight
on the water. I watched it more than an hour,
when it disappeared. It gave the face the look

Happiness of His. The following is
the conclusion of the learned aud philosophi
cal report on swine, by Y illiain. Lincoln, ot
the agricultural fair held at Albanyi a short
time since :
Pigs are a happy peojle. ' We may talk
dirtrngingly about living like a pig. To
live like a pig is to live like a gentleman.
Although it is not permitted hjr-he order of
nature that a pig should IaughVTMvcii smile,1
he enjoys the next best blessing:-of humanity,
the disposition to grow fat.- ,Ilow easily he
goes through thevorld ! Ho has no fancy
stocks to buy no ' bank notes - to pay
no indignation meetings to attend no log
cabin assemblies to hold. He has uo occa
sion to take the benefit of tho bankrupt act,
or to leave his estate confiscated to defray the
expenses of the settlement. Free froin all
the troubles that disturb the busy world, he is
as unconcerned among the changes of earthly
affairs as was the citizen whj was waked in
the earliest light of morning by being told day
was breaking ; well,' said he, as ho. turned
again to his repose ; let day break he owes
ot tlie numan race auu ot tne swiuiaii multi
tude, we may come to the conclusion- that ' if
mau will not be a man he had better be a pijj-
candle" nor moon, nor in - fact any visible
means of producing it. -Her sister xamotfa

PROSPECT U S
CONGRESSIONAL QLOBE AXD
Tlios:; works iiive sue!) a wide circulation, and
have bi en so tiaivuiaally approved atid fought after
by the public, that wo deem it ncce-wary only in
this pro-sp cttis to say that they willi bo continued
at tlie next session ot Conn s.-', and t'i state, suc
cinily, their content?, the form in which they will
be pnn'cd, and the prices lor ilieoi.
Tho Couirrcssioiial Glube is made ifp of the dally
proceedings of the two Houses of Conn ss.- Tho
speeches ot'thc members are abiidsed, or condons
cd, tobrini t'aem into a reasonable or ridable
length. All the resolutions ollV-red, or motions
iiia.ie, are i:ivon at length, in the mover's own
words ; and the yeas and nays oi all the important
qiif-sii-jns. it is print oil vita small yc orcvier
and nonpareil on a double-royal slice', in quarto
form, each number containing I( loyal tpiarlo
pa2.es. It is printed as fast as the business done in
Congress furnishes matter enough for a nu.nber
The first four weeks of a sesMon usually furuishe
matter enoitgh for one number a week; and the
balance of the session for t o or three numbers a
weik, Th2 coming session of Congress will fur
nish matter cno.igh, we suppose, for twenty-live or
The Appendix is m ide up r t the President's an
nual mer-fitec, the reports of the-principal officers of
the Govemnint that accompany it, anil all the loti
written out or'
th same -tly
of pages. Tlierv are not
so many numbers published the fi st weeks of a
es-ion,'as there ara numbrrs of the' Congressional
Globe; because tli: members nre s'ow writing out
their speei hes. But towards the close of a session
; he numbers are published more frequently tliau tho
Congressional Globe. .
Each f these works is complete in itse'f; hut it
is necessary for eveiy subscriber who desires a full
knowledge of the proceedings of Congress, ti have
both; because, then, if there should he any ambi
guity in tho synops s of life speech, or any d nial of
its correctness, as published in tha Congressional
Glolie, (he rcadr may turn to-thn Appendix to scu
the speech at length, correctetl by the member him
self. Now, there is no other source but the Congres
sional Globe and Appendix, from which a perso.'i
can obtiin .a full history of the proceedings of Con
gress. ; Gales and S aton's Kegister of DcbaN's,
which contaiiifd a bistorv, was suspended iu tho
year 1837, and has not since born resuimd. It
cost about five times as much for a Session as tin:
Congressional Globe and Appendix, and did not .
contain an equal amount ot matter, a irr"at poitioo
otthe current proceedings being; omitted. Tho
speeches of both parties are published in the Daily
Globe, and in the Congressional Globe and Ap
pendix: other papers publisli their own side only.
We are enabled lo print the Congrf ssional Globor
and Appendix at the low rate now-proposed, by hav
ing a larirc quantity of tvpe, and keeping the Con
gressional nfatter that we set up for the Dai'y and
Semi-weekly Gobe standing for the Congression
al Globe and Appendix.
Compltto indexes to both tl.c Congt essiona I
Globe and tlie Appendix are prinird at tho clos.t of
each session, and sent to all subscribers for them.
The reports ol the Congressional Globe and Ap
pendix are not in the least degree affected by the
party bias of the Editors. They arc given precisely
as written out by ibe Reporters and the numbers
tM;nac!ves. And the whole are subject to the re-
vision and correction of the speakers, as they pass
in review in our daily sheet, iu ease any maunder'
standing or misrepresentation in their remarks
should occur. We make a daily analysis of the
doings in Congress, nd give our opinions in it
freely j-but this 's published only iu "the Dailv,
S. rni-cekly, and Weekly Gbr. The Daily
Globe js S'tU, the Semi -veekJy Globe 5, and tho
Weekly Gftfue 32 per annum, iu advance. The
1 Weekly Globe is prisfed in fyy Pa pjlC form . as.tlui L 1r

Doth Mouses of Congress take the Congressional - i
Globe and Appendix, for thtir committee rooms,
and for the libraries ofComrress. Si confident ar"
we that all who may subscribe i'qr these works will
be pleased with them, that we hereby pledge our

wish to dispose of them, if they will sencl liem 4o

who did not subscribe for these works at first, are
now almost compelled to have the back . numbers,,
to enable them lo understand the previous legisla
tion of Conrcs. We have hack nuinbrTrs- oiv
