occasions drifting by! Better with naked nerve to bear The needles of this goading air, Than, in the lap of sensual ease, forego The godlike power to do, the godlike aim to know. XXI. Home of my heart! to me more fair Than gay Versailles or Windsor's halls, The painted, shingly town-house where The freeman's vote for Freedom falls! The simple roof where prayer is made, Than Gothic groin and colonnade; The living temple of the heart of man, Than Rome's sky-mocking vault, or many-spired Milan! Xxii. More dear thy equal village schools, Where rich and poor the Bible read, Than classic halls where Priestcraft rules, And Learning wears the chains of Creed; Thy glad Thanksgiving, gathering in The scattered sheaves of home and kin, Than the mad license ushering Lenten pains, Or holidays of slaves who laugh and dance in chains. Xxvi. And sweet homes nestle in these dales, And perch along these wooded swells; And, blest beyond Arcadian vales, They hear the sound of Sabbath bells
rted that the Emperor Napoleon declared to the Bishop of Versailles, with much sarcasm, that the temporal power of the Pope must be put down. Count Persigny, as Minister of the Interior of France, was issuing important circulars to the Prefects. In one he promises the utmost liberty of discussion to the press. It was reported that the Austrian Cabinet had discussed the expediency of declaring martial law throughout Hungary. It was also rumored that the Hungarian Committee, at Milan, had proposed to tender the Hungarian cause to Prince Napoleon. General O' Donnell had been fired upon and shot in the shoulder, as he was leaving the Spanish Senate. The French Ambassador to Turkey was urging the extension of the French occupation of Syria, but the Porte objects. Commercial. Liverpool.

plary plenty. Certain it is, that his object in suggesting a different mode of punishment from that in general use, was purely benevolent. It seems from the statement of Du Bois--who has written the most reliable account of these matters — that Guillotin got his first notion of a beheading machine — not from the Halifax Gibbet, nor the Scottish Maiden — but from an anonymous book of travels in Italy and Switzerland, in which the author describes the execution of a certain Count Bozelli, at Milan, in 1702, by an instrument resembling the guillotine.--This seems, indeed, to have been the common method of executing great criminals throughout the continent in the 17th century. One of Richeliru's victims, the Marshal De Montmorenci, was beheaded by a similar one at Toulouse in the year 1632. It has been said that the Jews and Romans employed the same means to punish offenders; but of this there is no authentic proof, so far as we know. The first establishment of the guillotine aff<

It is astonishing to what channels commerce will adapt itself when its ordinary course is interrupted Napoleon could march in triumph from the Tagus to the Vistula. He overthrew, as if by magic, the best appointed armies and the most ancient dynasties in Europe. He could make and unmake what laws he choose, excepting only one--the simple and eternal law of demand and supply. His famous Milan and Berlin decrees were more injurious to his subjects than to his enemies. British commerce found its way into the heart of his dominions in spite of every obstacle, and American cotton will find its way across the Atlantic in spite of all the navies in the world. But it is possible — nay, highly probable — that the demand for it will diminish in the event of a protracted contest There are numerous instances in the history of commerce where the accident of war, or even the alteration of a

ined to try her powers in a wider field, where success is surer and fame more brilliant and lasting. She accordingly went to Paris, where she placed herself under the tuition of the celebrated Spanish teacher, Garoia, and afterwards proceeded to Milan, where she became the pupil of Renconi. Her debut in opera was made at Marseilles, in the "Huguenots, " in the year 1845. She was immediately afterwards engaged at the celebrated theatre of La Scala, in Milan, where she gathered laurels froMilan, where she gathered laurels from the most discriminating musical audience in the world, winning universal admiration by the simplicity and naturalness of her manner and the purity of her voice. The season of 1846 she passed at Vienna, and after having made the tour of the principal cities of Italy, made her first appearance in London in 1849. Two years later she left Europe for the United States, and arrived in the fall of 1851, making her first appearance in New York in a concert at Tripler Hall, where the Lafarge Hotel no
Tardy repentance. --The Lombardo, of Milan, publishes the following letter, addressed to the Pope by an old woman, once a celebrated dancer: "At the advanced age of seventy-eight I humble myself in the dust, and bitterly deplore having occasioned many scandals by dancing in theatres during a period of twenty-five years, and having heaped up enjoyment and riches by the practice of that diabolical art. At this time, when the Roman Government is enduring such great anguish, I venture, unworthy sinner as I am, to come feebly to its aid with the trifling sum of five hundred Austrian livers, which I offer as a contribution to St. Peter's penny, imploring at the same time his blessing and prayers for myself, my deceased father, my daughter Charlotte, and her son Eustago and Elizabeth, his wife, and all the children they may have, and finally for all my children and posterity, to the end that the good may triumph and the wicked perish.

But these measures, which were never up to, were called forth by those mad decrees of Berlin, Milan, and Fontaineblea , by which the French Emperor attempted to close Europe against our goods and to us annihilate our manufactured. But this precedent cannot be appealed to by the American Government, inasmuch as it protected repeatedly against those Orders in Council. It has always insisted that the presence of a competent force at the entrance of the post is necessary to make a blockade effective. We find this doctrine plainly enunciated in the ordinances of the Congress of the Confeder

Already the Austrian garrison along the shore of the lake have caught the alarm, and are everywhere on the watch. The ever of excitement aroused by the hero wherever he shows himself, exceeds the description.
