O T THE GLORY OF CiESAlt; Dl)T THE WELFARE OF ROME. BY II. B. STACY. FRIDAY, 21, 1837. VOL. X No. 513. trnvclcr, as ho pnccth, nmnzodly, through I It ought not ho tho lending object of any thnso deserts askelh of her who buildoil 'ic " become nn eminent mathematician, THE COMMON LOT. BY MONTOOMEUY. KJiire in llic flight ofiigea past Tliero lived a mnn-und who was lie ? Moriul ! hovve'er iliy lot lie cast, Tlwt man resembled dice ! XJnkiiuivn llio legions of Ills hirili. I'lie land in which he died unknown, His name hath perished fiom the c.irlh, This liuih survives alone That joy, find Brief, mid hope, nnd fear, Alternate triumphed in Ins brcint, 11 is bliss and wo, a finite, u tear ! Oblivion hides the rest. The loundins pulse, the languid limb, The changing ppii it's rise and fall, c know that lhee were fell by him, For thcic me fell by all. He suffered but his ians3 arc o'er, Enjovcd but his delights are fled, Had friends iiis friends are now no more, Anil foes bis foes aiedcad. He loved but "bom bo loved, the grave Hath lust in in unconscious womb : O hIiu was fair ! but nought could save tier beauty from the tomb. The lolling peasoiw, day and night, Sun, moon ami ?lars. i tie earth and mam, Ere while his portion, life and light, To him exist in vain, He saw whatever thou hast fcen, Encountered all that Doubles thee, He was whatever llion hast been, lie is what thou eh. ill be ! Thi clouds and sunbeams o'er hia eye That once tlicir shade and glory threw, Have left in jonder silent fky No vestige wlicielhey flew ! The aun.ils of the human race, Their lain since ihu world began, 01 him afford no other trace Than this theke lived a man. Wo had the pleasure of hearing the on nual oration and poem delivered on tho 22d day of February, 1037, before the Young Mechanics of Boston, and noticed that in the poem, especially, there were some exceedingly clever passages The ptiblt cation of that 'pnuhi in the Evening Ga zette, enables us to select one of those passage, as a specimen of the composition creditable to ltd author, who, we under Blond, is an apprentice in a Printing-Office Bailor. Courier. It once was said by one well known to Fame, A thinking sage, Archimedes bis name, That it weie easv, cnuM he find a place To fix the Lever'in the fields of space, To move the Earth fiom its accustomed round, This Nature Ins denied : I5nt there is found In those high l'r'mciples that triumph heio, A Lever iirmlv -fixed which vet thissiiheie JW.iy cause to shake and liemble with its power It is a lever mat miiKe-i ijiiuns nmn, And mingles with the dust iho.-e lofiy thrones That rise accursed 'midst the People's groans, A Lever that shall bieak all senile chains That bind man, dow n to man, till through bis veins Shall course al'iecnian s blooil.aml I- reeiloni's power And siein oppression shall be known no more, It needs not sirs, a station where the sun From east in west its daily course has mil Tho fulcrum's here amidu jour very selves j 'I'is tlicie, my fiiends, on jointer teeming shelves It needs but willing hands its woik to do, itnd for lliiK-e willing li.u.tN now calls on you. Those niincinles we boast, i-o justly famed, By which our in.-liiuiions all aie framed, They have the power, which ne'er the sage's skill Though left to range thoee boundless fields at will Could ever rival in majestic night. True, they may not jetard earth's rapid flight, Its oi bit change amid tne heavenly train, Vheicin the Eternal bade it to lemain ; But tliev may send throughout its farthest verge An influence which shall all things else immergc, Andicuovatc ami partly each place That wears tho semblance of corruption's face. Be those but true who have this charge in trust, Fi ce from ambition's toils, ami pi ale, and lust, And Liberiy-tlie prize our Fathers gave Shall live shall triumph and a world shall save! The shelves containing a library of well selected books. thcin. and she mumbled something, but. what is, ho hearelli not.' Thus it is, that the position of our being deficH a'l primary or ultimate inquiry. If we look bach, there a point where knowledge fades into con jcclurci il'onwnrd, wet-land upon the bor der of a sea with but one slmrc, and whoso lieavings h"yond are infinite and eternal ! Of what avail is it, then, thnt we bond over the lore of antiquity, or wax pale over the lamp of midnight -i hat we walk in the fields, catching the faint utterance of the voice of Got! ? Wo spend our strength for naught : the clouds roll with an uncomurc bended impulse ; tho wave heaves, the vcr. dure brightens, the wind turneth in its cir cuits but what are we? Wo drink tho sunshine and I ho breeze ; passions warm 113 -doubl overshadows hope inspiresfear haunts us: but we arc still in mystery. Pleasure and pain are equally uncertain; the morrow is in a mist, and yesterday is nothing. Our friends dieGod changes their countenances and takes them away nd where is the halm for so bitter a sting? It is to consider the earth as no abiding place ; to rely on a pnwor beyond our own; to disdain the sneer of the bigot" the hot language of the zealot, and to cherish in one's heart of hearts, that essence of the beatitudes the religion of life. Death levels poverty and pride, And rich and poor sleep side by side, IVithin the grave. To this completion, at last, must wu come: and our questionings oi tne cio ments, or of the mind, are nliko in vain. How olton has passionate Grief invoked tho hosts of heaven to restore the lost Yet when, the clod has once fallen with its hollow sound upon the coffin-lid ; when its nielaiiehollv echo has sunk, unheard, over the tuneless ear of Death, who has stood by and heard the requiem for the departed soul, but has wondered for its flight Wheie is the heart that has not poured forth its plaint, amid the stillness of the night, 'when the car pout, or man ol business ; hut lo render himself happy as nn individual, and an ngreoable, and tin useful member of society. without alarming nee niado them I .1.. ... ...... i. i . .i i .una fniir or I un in nj il jlnn rnni 1 mcilV!

The following from Lady Montagu's lately published Letters is an account of a" scene which, wo will venturo to as sort, is without a parallel in any ago or na tion. Aid. uaz, "London, Mav, 1738. Here is no news to bo sent yon from this place, which has been for this fortnight and still continues ovor.vli.jli.lou i.'itli p.illliaJ, and u'llioll OTO of so mysterious n nature, one ought to have some oftho gifts of Lilly or Pntridgc tn be able to write about them; and I leavo all i hose dissertations to those distinguished mortals who are endowed with tho talent of divination though I am at present the only one of my sex who seems to be of that opin ion, the ladies having shown thoir zeal and appjlile for knowledge in a most glorious manner. At the last warm debate in tho IIouso of Lords, it was unanimously resolv. ed there should be nu crowd of unnecessary auditors : consequently the fnir sex wcro excluded and Him gallery destined to tho solo use of the House of Commons. Not withstanding which determination, a tribo of dames resolved lo show on this occasion that niiiher men nor laws could roj'istthem. These heroines wcro Lady Huntingdon, tho duchess of Qiieensbury, the Duchess Ancasier Ladv Westmoreland, Lady Cob bam. Lady Charlotte Edwin, Lady Arch ibald Hamilton and her daughter. Mrs. Scott. Mrs. Pcndarvis, and Lady Francos Sauiidorson. T am thus particular in their unities, since I look upon them to bo tho boldest a-'sertors and imst resigned sufferers for liberty I ever read of. They presented themselves tit the door at nine o'clock in tho morning, where Sir William Saunderso. respectfully informed them tho Chancellor bad made an order against their admittance. The dutches of Q,uecnsbii'y, as head of the squadron, pished nt the ill-breeding of n mere lawyer, and desired him to let thoin up stairs privately. After somo modest refusals ho sworn by u ho would not let. then) in- I lor Grace, with a noble warmth answered, by Glhoy would como in, in pile of ihu Chancellor and ino wnoio IIourc. This being reported, tho Pecr3 resolved to starve them out; an order was matlo that the doors should not be opened till they had raised their 6cigc. J heso Amazons now showed themselves qualified fur the duty even of foot soldiers; they stood thcro till five in the afternoon, with out sustenance every now nnd then playing vollies of thumps, kicks, and raps, against tho door, that tho speakers in the IIouso were scarce heard. Whon the Lords were not to conquered by this, the two Dutch esses (very well apprized uf the use of strnlagcms in wnr) commanded a dead si lonccof half nn hour ; and thu Clnncellor. who thought this a certain proof of their absence, (the Common? nlso being very impatient to enter,) gavo order for the o pcning of tho door ; upon which thoy all rushed in. pn-hed nside their competitors, and placed themselves in the front rows of the gallery. They stayed there till aflor eleven, when tho IIouso rose; and during the debate gave applause, and showed marks of dislike, not only by smiles nnd winks, (which havo alwayi been allowed in these cases,) but by noisy laughs ami appa. runt contempts; which i's supposed the true, reason why poor Lord Ilcrveyspoko misor ably. 1 beg your pardon, dear madam, for this long relation; but, 'tis impossible to bo short on so copious n subject j and you must own this action very well worthy of record, and 1 think not to bo paralleled in any history, ancient or modern. I look so little iu my own eyes, (who was at that timo ingloriously 6iitiug over u tea-table,) I hardly dare subscribe myself even. i Yours."
