From Ackerman's Forget Me Not.
Now take thy choice, thou maiden fair,
Of the gifts thy lovers bring;
The one has brought thee jewels fair,
The other flowers of spring.
The maiden watched the rubies glow,
And wreathed them in her hair;
Tut heavy they pressed upon her brow,
Like the weight of secret care.
The gems that bound her forehead high,
Might have lighted a diadem ;
Yet pale grew her check, and dim her eye
Her heart was not with them. 1
And ever an inward pulse would stir,
When she saw a'spring flower wave ;
TJut never again did they bloom tor her,
Till they bloomed upon her grave !
She's borne ta her -grave with purple pall,
And scaitcl.eon, and waving plume; .
One followed-r-thc. saddest one of al l
' And threw flowers oyer her tomb. L. E. L.
: MATRIMONIAL LAV.
The editor of the Hosion l ranscripws a
tie man lorying Jn his bachelorship,.-: He,
gdesrSrUi from " fair to iairV well received and
well ehtefuined, because he has hot yet passed
1,-nr. Af hnnn: andwhile he continues on the
fence vhh regard to matrimony, he occasion
allv drops a crumb on either side, so that wheu
hc'shali jump, he "may be decently received.
ThC, following is Extracted from a recent num
ber of his paper. We beg leave to add that
there is no law in Pennsylvania prohibiting a
man from beating a wife. For the'same rea
son, we imagine, that, a legislator of olfl refused
to add to his code a penalty for parricide.
"Touching the marriage contract, we have
a word of consolation for the feminine moiety
of the conjugated, worthy their remembrance.
A large portion of -the sex have.been "frighted
from their propriety" by a nonsensical belief
founded on the excathedral assertion oi a mar
velously learned, ancient and fish-like Judge of
the British Realm, that a man has by nature,
a riht perfect and indisputable, to annoint his
woman with a rod, provided always it be no
biager than his thumb.
The whole story is ridiculous, and not worth
one moment's consideration. It may be Com
mon Law in Old England, but it is positively
against the Statute Law of New England and
so conscientious were our gallant and chival
rous forefathers in this respect, that the very
first section of the chapter of recorded acts re-snectin"-
marriages and married persons pro
vides that no man shall strike his wife, nor any
woman her husband, (mark that latter clause
'ire damsels) on penalty of such fine not exceed
ng ten pounds, (currency of those times, say
about $33 33) or such coporal punishment as
ihe court shall determine. This law was
passed in 1G50 has never been repealed, and
is'worthy of all rehiembranee."
From the Boston Atlas.
l ft was an old saying, I remember, when I play
ed pawpayi for marbles in State street and a boy
was very lucky the others would cry out
hang him how he nicks, 'em'. But this is noth
jn,f to the Brown nick that has taken place
How imperceptibly does age steal on us and
ve are considered old and advanced even before
we know it. About two years since, in a neigh
bouring town, I met an old lady and her daugh
ter who had, as we often see, stockings and
socks for sale. I asked the price and was ex
amining them, when the daughter spoke up and
said, mother, perhaps the old gentleman will
take the two pair, if you will put them so and
so. I shall never forget the sensation I felt at)
this first sound of old gentleman. I strongly
reprimanded the young lady tor calling me old,
and tellingherl believed it was customary with;
the French to consider nobody old but the Old
Harry 1 passed it oflf as well as I could. A
iew days after, il being winter, there came by
mo one afternoon a large party of young men,
one of whom I overheard to say, 'why there is
old Mr. " 'Gone,' says I to myself, 'hook
and line: 1 must give up the ship and consider
myself an old man.'
-A late London paper contains a
JMter from Hungary, under the date of 8th
August, which states that the country had
been deluged, by an almost incessant rain from
July 2d. On August 4, atdaybreak, the weath-
er appeared to oe cteanng up, uui at miu-uay
the sun became completely obscured, as if by
an eclipse, and five minutes afterwards a globe
uf fire as large as a carriage-wheel appeared in
the west, and moving in a serpentine course,
broke against the mountains, with a tremen
dous explosion. It was immediately followed
j,y a torrent of rain that inundated the whole
country. The atmosphere became extremely
:old, and on the 16th, the Alps were covered
Poisonous Beads. Those heautiful red seeds
- with a black spot, brought fronlndia, which are some
si nies worn as ornaments of dress, are said by the na
tives to be so dangerous, that the half of one of them
ia sufficiently poisonous to destroy a man. .This ac
ount, however, seems to exceed probability ; but that
they h?.ve a very prejudicial -quality, 1 have no doubt,
;or within my own knowledge I have seen an extra
ordinary effect of t he poison of one of these peas. A
-o;r woman who had some ollhem given to her, and
a ho d'ul not choose to be at the expense of having
uuMTi drilled to make a necklace, put the seeds into

1833, was destroyed including, as well the
original letters and communications addressed
to tip Secretary af the Treasury, as the records
of the letters and communications written bv
him. With a view to repair the loss, as
as maybe practicable, all officers of the United

pared, and authenticated by them, of any let
ters (excepting those hereinafter alluded to,
which they may at any time have written to)

other individuals throughout the United States,
are invited to do the same. That this corres

all sides to admit of binding, and that no more
than one letter be contained on a leaf. It is
also requested, that the copies be written in a
plain and distinct or engrossing hanH. Where
the original letter can be spared it would be
preferred. The reasonable expense incurred
in copying the papers now requested, not ex
ceeding the rate of ten cents for every hundred
words, will be defrayed by the Department.
The correspondence which has been saved,
and of which, therefore, no copies are desired,
are the records of the letters written by the
Secretary of the Treasury to Presidents ami
