Hftrlcji the Convent Bell's arc ringing.
Hark, the convent bells are ringing,
And the nun's are sweetly singing,
" Holy Virgin, hear our prayer
See, the novice comes to sever
v'ry worldly tie for ever ;
"Take, O take her to your care."
Still radiant gems are shining,
Her jet black locks entwining ; f
And her robes around her flown ig
With sunny tints are glowing,
But all earthly rays are dim ;
,; Splendours brighter
"Now invite her,
Yhilc we chauHt our vesper hymn."
Now the lovely maid is kneeling,
Vith uplifted eyes appealing ; ;
Holy Virgin, hear her prayer;
See, the Abbess benuing o'er her,
U'reathes the sacred vow before her,
" Take, O take her to your care."
Her form no more possesses
fL'hose dark luxuriant tresses;
The solemn words are spoken,
Each earthly link is broken,
; And all earthly joys arc dim:
" Splendours brighter
Now invite her,
l- While we chaunt our vesper hymn."
A woman's love, deep in the heart,
Is like the violet flower,
That lifts its modest head apart
In some sequester'd bower;
.ndblest is he who finds that bloom,
Who sips its gentle sweets ;
He needs not life's oppressive gloom,
SVor all the care he meets!
A woman's love i like the spring
Amid the wild alone?
A burning wild, o'er which the wing
Of cloud is seldom thrown;
And blest is he who meets that fount
Ueneath the sultry day;
How gladly should his spirits mount!
How pleasant be his way .
wArvoman's love is like the rock-
That every tempest braves,
And stands secure amid the shock
OFocean's wildest waves ;
Aud blest is he to whom repose
Within its shade is given;
The world, with all its cares and woes,
Seems les3 like earth than heaven.
A Hoax. At the court of sessions which
;losed a few days since at Hackensack, N. J.,
a hoax was played ofT, which for its singular
audacity and success, deserves to be recorded.
The perpetrator had been a l ng time in pris
on at Hackensack, awaiting his trial upon a
charge of perjury. The evident e against him
establishing the offence was known to be of so
c onclusive a character, that i obody doubted
ior a moment that the proceedings against him
would terminate by his imprisonment in the
tate prison. A living dog, however, is better
than adcadlion, as was shown by the issue of
this, mail's case. It appears that a few years' East-India Company were united together for
rior to the time appointed for trial, when eve-' the purpose of collecting authentic information

continued, was in a great measure destroyed by
the afflicting paralysis under wlncli lie men la
bored that if sent to prison he must remain
there a public charge without rendering any ad
equate service in return for his support but
above all, that he was likely according to every
reasonable probability of shortly answering
for his transgressions before another and high
er tribunal, they came to a conclusion that all
the ends of public justice would be answered
in his case, by imposing upon him a fine.
They, therefore, more out of a regard to the
forms of law, than from any desire to exact its
roHection, imposed upon him a fine of Jive
The brother of the prisoner, who manifested
for him during all this while the most fraternal
ohcilude, advanced the fine, and with a one
iiorse wagon in winch he had placed a Led,
t drove off with him from the prison.
One of the prosecuting counsel bavin busi
ness in this city on the following day, crossed
ihe ferry at the foot of Courtland street, but the
extent of his surprise and astonishment mav h
better conceived than described, when almost
immediately on lauding he ran plump against
thodving man, who was hastening towards the
ferrtvith the eagerness and speed of a flying
Mercury. The counsel of course expressed
his amazement at this singularly unexpected
rt"'jonlre, to which the culprit replied, chuck
ling at the success of his ingenious expedient,
and proud of the deception he had practised
by the inimitable manner in which he had ac
ted out the character of a cripple Gh ! I am a
great deal better to day than I was yesterday.
Then, with a knowing wink and a hearty laugh,
he dropped his arm and contracted his leg, to
prove the identity of the paraltic cheat, and re
covering 4iimself immediately, turned hastily
on his heel, and made the best of his way to the
ferry, leaving the counsel to gaze with wonder
at ; the miraculous recovery of his locomotive
powers, of which but the day before he had been
seemingly deprived, and also to reflect upon
the credulity of those who had been so success
fully duped by an arch impostor. Courier $
Burying Alive. The late Capt. Ebenezer
Chapman Ken p, who, in 18:6, commenced
the Moira, in which I sailed to India, related to
me a painful instance of self-immolation which
occurred in his own family. A young woman in
his service lost her husband, and resolved,
without hesitation to bur herself alive with the
body. Both Captain and Mrs. K. were shock
ed to hear of her determination, and , represent
ed to her both the dreadful character of the
crime she was about to commit, and the utter
inutility of the sacrifice to the departed spirit
of her husband. But all the arguments and
entreaties which Christian principle and the
feelings of humanity could suggest were urged
in vain. She had been taught to believe that,
by voluntarily dying with her husband, she
would expedite his transit to some unknown
region of bliss, and herself bear him company.
Every attempt to persuade the infatuated crea
ture to live, wheth' r for the sake 61 her family,
or her own soul, appeared only to cause her
the more to exult in her resolution to die.
Capt. K. continued his humane exertions to
the last, even while the awful ceremony was
proceeding, but without the least symptom of
a favorable impression being produced on her
minrl. When the pit was dug, and the dead
body lowered into it, she walked round several
times repeating the formularies which the
piiest dictated to her, and scattering about as
she went along, sweetmeats, parched rice, flow
ers and other tribes, for which the spectators
scrambled. When these preliminary rites
were finished, she descended into the grave,
amid the din of barbarous music and deafening
shouts of applause. Having taken her seat,
and placed the head of the corpse in her lap,
she gave the signal to throw in the earth. I
forget whether she had a son old enough to
take a part in the horrid scene, in which case
he would be the principal actoi ; but otherwise,
her nearest male relatives, as chief mourners,
would take the lead, and throw in the first
baskets of eartti. For some time the jrave
filled slowly as the deed ofdeath was perpetrated
with appalling deliberation & the relations conti
nued to throw in garlands, sandal-wood and
other ril-es, with the mould that was gradu
ally covering the bodies. When it rose to her
breast, the woman raised her left arm. and was
seeifto turn roun i her fort -finger as long as it
was visible, even after her head was covered.
That however, was a very short time, as the
earth was thrown in hastily as soon as the
head disappeared, and her relations jumped in
to tread it down, and smoother their wretched
victim. At the very time that Captain Kemp
was giving me the atTe. ting account just de-
j tailed, several gentlemen in the service of the
snowing laconic siie:
