The only true, deep, clinjjinp chords, that bind us to tlio world and our kind, arc found, in nlk-clions ; in those tendrils of iovc that bind heart to heart so closely, that thoy become ai it wore one, and to separate which seems, for the' tone, almost like a blow of mutual death. But of all partiiifif, perhaps there is none more ,; onizmr than that which comes between th' pa rent and those beautiful llovvcrs of lift, that have been ho tenderly and anxiously watched ; a id who, day after day, as some new charm, (i 'lie tinny rjrace devolopes itself, havo boon bound closer and closer lo the bosom. The old or the mature, dying in their strength, fooiii to Invo sunk bofore an inevitable fate ; and time with his obvious hand, gradually smoothes away the harshness of our first fjriof. Uut when the vv 'alt ami the dependent, the pure, the innocent, tho fragile, bow before the breath of the des troyer, a keener agony is felt and tho fountain" of the soul are more deeply stirred. To see its infviti'o face, one day lighted up with the mor rj laiiijii, springing from a spirit that knows only of lair sunshine hippy, joyoiH, frolicsome, a lijlit tint cheers your hom. and makes glad ymir heart after a day's rough toil and the lvjt vv itli fevered I, nibs, mcskly enduring the pm ol a disease that will not bo bathed of its vif I rm ; to feel the cold chill run through your veins as hc la:r touches vuu to watcli its sutler ingii ; to see it sink slowly ; tosee tint mild eve fM faintly in its "lance upon you: tosre the l:d iVorip and clo-c and then feel tint it is cone, f. . tuoi the sweet cherub you so loved and i n:j so rnenslifil carries a pang, a Keener an I niro intense agony of the soul, that Ian gtinga cannot tell nor imagination dream. None ran Kimw who havo not sullaied. yt tins season of the voir, many a victu.) is filtered up in all its angelic purity. Many a neari mat peruses tins will nnsvver to it with Itarr, dMU ivel that I, kecarly lljwersthey bloom and fade as silently. But there is still a rich balm of consolation that like incense hovers over the tomb of the Ikir b.tb?.. It is its innocence. The enncinua ntss that it was taken away, eic sorrow had darkened its p?.'h or sin ficd its plague spot upon the soul, gives a peace ami joy, which leave to tim mourner only thegrief of parting. There is no trembling for the luture, no sor rowing in bitterness, or alarm. It is indued hard to take the final farewell of thoe little inno. rentr; but better is it, tiiat they sh mid go from us when called, in id their unsullied inno cence, than to live and struggle an.l s.n in the iUrk vv ivh of a flail world. They arc at pear.;. I.e!, then, tho mourner strive to feel tint it is I etter for tha babe, and pray to be made sub. missive to tho higher Will.

When you say, then, that : "ti nn writings, which, with such inimitable pro pricty, you styla his "police reports," it is very cvi dent that "his life has been mainly spent among the lower classes of the Lnghsh people, nnd tint ho is not at all accustomed to mingle in pood society," you mil?! nave Kept distinctly in your democratic eye, nil his eir;uf lie pictures of innocence, ull his sketches of bumble worth, which p veto lowly virtue fur moro "" lUan" nd so ic'y" among tho higher clas- ' 1 - l n.. ip Me vvao I rvt-r daim When -Tin. i.k.n,tr.tfl, ft l' Jriu,puni of the character, manners and habits of his London associates," I take it for gianted that the genial phi losophy, the warm-hearted humanity, tho glowing sympathy with the good and the true, under what rags soever it may dwell and in whatever lowly and despised hratt ft may make it- home, which shine through Oliver Twist, and make it one of the best and most delightful books ever penned, were clearly present to your mind and were allowed all proper weight in determining jour judgment of his worth. Hut t cannot quite persuade myself that all tho old emotions with which you first read his work, kept tliciriull power anil freshness 111 your heart. I can not quite believo tint you locd lilllj Nell, a female portrait worthy that gallery In which hang for tho worship ofages, Miranda and Juliette an I Dcsdemo na and "Una with her milk-white lamb," quite as ar- denily aa when first you made her acquaintance, and kissed her smooth forehead and silently vowid in your heart never to forget or cease to love her. Arid had you not lost something of tho holy sadness with which you sat beside tho bed, dressed with winter berries and green leaves culled from the spots she loved so well, whereon sho died T Hid you feel just as you did when, with her poor old grand-father, you Hols on tiptoe to her chamber door, and looked in upon her, as she lay ihere, with her strong and gen tle heart mute and motionless forever, looking hko "soma creature ficsh from the hand cf God and waiting for the breath of life not one who had lived and suffered death 1 Did vou see her little bird stir ring nimbly in its cage above her head? And did you remember your walk, along that crow 'ed paih, to her last beautiful and peaceful resling place!

Thus miy yous' o hiw esi-ntnllv .tp'rHuil, is his whole Philosophy s nnd how much higher and worthier it is thin tint mechanical scheme of Hi-l-vrn, who nerjr ptrfi.'ms an s-t, ot even poetic justice but by a miracle1, and who thus leaves the reider surprised and confounded that lico should ever have received its puntshnvnt. Hut I will not yield to the tciiptatnn to writo o critique of Dickp.s-h. I fear that I have already writ ten too much for your columns, but I hive no time to ma' e it shorter; so I'll ramble on a littln farther, and cast mvi-jlf upon your indulgence. I know yon to be good-nituied and I'll not conccnl my disposition to takendvanlagc of that amiable failing. This "police reporter" begins to assume aim." If tru, that's bid fur hitn, hot, thank fortune, it can't hnrt little Nell or Nicklehy or any of his other ch.l dien. I shall love them just as woll fir nil that; fir even if Dickens should nuke a foil of himself, (of which I have not the least fiar, since wv, of the Ue public, utterly fn le-t to make one of liihi,) I should Isugh just as merrily at his wonted humor, and weep just as sincerely over such "amusing police reports" as I have already quote I. Hut since it is proved Hist tho letter you published was not written by him, yon cannil linger lias this testimony to his condemna tion. Iltorl must be, as it already has been, had to the fact that whilu here ho ventured to hint to his American worshippers, tho propriety of acknowledg ing md eocuiinT his nV'i'f well as glorifying his en":s by which, indeed, nnny of them hive hith erto lived. I am not shout to enter t.pon n d.sci s'on ofthc International Copy-right question, though I havenadonbt as to th ri?h! of the matter t but the process by which i gifted writer, of great fame and piw-r, i" instantly converted, in o ir eye, into a base "police reporter," at least descries a parable i here then let it begin ; Charles, it seams, with minv brethren, dwells in a goolly lind which is all their own rich in all luscious and fnodful fruits and over hung by the lounty of n benignant Heaven. It is shutout by a high wall, built by naturs, (rom tho broader hut less wealthy and fei tile domain of Jona than who scorn1 the name, but is not always a sham ed to claim the privilege of a poor rthtion. Now Jon athap isskilled in judging nffruts : and he soon per ceives that tlvis of Charles nnd his breihre n are of surpassing flivnr. He is skilled, too, in climbing walls snd soonhe fteds himself from his neighbor's trees, and grows fat and good-natured, withal, on his repast. No ftuit was ever half sj sweet to his tastes the wide world, in all its ages, never saw sught that could compare with it in richness; all tho day ho feeds upon it, and at n'ght he sounds loud picans in its pra'se. He lakes great cargoes of it to bis home and all his children are fed and d -lighted, They find in it a life they had never known before anda sweetness of which they had never dreamcl. Then all the land rine" with sliouis in honor of Chariest all her people takeptidoin his great glory and her most cunning men je with each nthnriuej. alting most cunningly his priuso. Their idol Charles hears their songs and is pleised; snd he determines to sec tho poodly land of his adjoining neighbor. Jonathan he hears is nn open, frank, honest, grateful friend and he lands upon hi- shore. The whulo land welcomes him, thouts, nnd sings to him, and thinks it3(lf blessed beyond nil hope that it has seen the man who has grown the ftuit thnl has fed them all. Charles siys he is reiy glad they like his fruit; he thanks them for their praises of in he rejoices in the plcaiure it has given them ; they ate welcome to all they have taken without so much as asking liU lenvet hedemauds no returns for what they have had but he gently hints his wish, that they would"pay him tometKng for what they tletlen to take thereafter. This fruit, he says, is all that he and his many breth ren huve to live upon : it costs them labor and troub le to isiso it, and they niggest lo Jonathan the pro priety of giving them tircatl,u UaBt, for tho luscious fruit he loves so nell. Jonathan is atnnred petrified with oslonishmrnt. Vox fauclbus hasit, closer than wax, stiterunttpu coma; stifT as a stnkel The impudence of his old friend Charles is astoundinir: it is sublimn! Tim . ungrateful vagabond! "Have I not," said Jonathan m his wrBlh, "have not I and my children praised his fruit as no other men have praisrd It 7 Hnvewend ifnil as no ntlurs have everdonel And does not d.s urg n. i r.v ''nit if it h duet hu I'tiv t ( ed it not tenth part as much would havo been eat en, and therefore ho would havo acquired not a tithe ofthc glory 7" Then all the people of Jonathandom waxed wroth i tho p'easanl fruit they had been eat ing, turned to ashes in their mouth nnd then was beard a mighty spitting and sputteting nil over the land. So Charles went homo ; nnd the land he had left rung wi'h curses of him and his fruit. Clumsy, .Mr. F.ditor, my parable may bet but not quite pointless, I hope. I can readily sec how those, who havo been so long and deeply delighted with tho writings of Dicitrsf, should sadden nt the thought, that they must hereafter, be placed farther from their grasp. Perfectly intelligible is this to me. And lean easily conceive, moreover, that they shi uld be un willing to deprive themselves of so pleasant food for the benefit, even, of the man who has pripircd itfor them. Hut it is not quite so comprchcnsiblo-to my mind, how this titan who was onco so great a gen ius, whom men of sane minds nnd sound hearts ofieu ventured lo name m connection with ijiiAKsreAnc, whose song reached unto Iho ends of the Kartb, be cause it was sounded upon the chord that sends up its melody wherever there is found a human being, should in a moment of tune, in the twinkling of nn eye lie translormcd into a worthless "police re;iorl- er'' a scavenger in tho polluted finds of London low life a cat icatutisl, a rovdy and a boor. As the old merchant says in the farce, when accused of a peccadillo, "it may be all right I Mesuinc it isi bu hang me if I con understand it." As to the propriety of the allusions Mr. Pickens was in the habit (if making to tht copy-right question, at complimentary festivals in thu country. 1 hare nothing to say. It may have been in bad tsste perhaps it was s but a lack of taste, in this country, you know, is not a capital offence. Mr. Dickes-3 may have been guilty of it, and yet have onco written sonic very commend able hooks. Hut suppose he had chosen the path di rectly opposite the one be did take. Suppose, when atieed to paitakc of a public dinner, ho had said "No, gentleman you rob mo of my books nnd till you make provision for my payment, I can't pnrtnke of your linsjiiisliij.. I respectfully decline your offer." would you nave thought any better of him then u), oou us wen as you do nowl And yet you blame him for having "received in nil cases without being urged and m most with ncknow bilged gratifi canon" tnc hospitality of Ins American hosts. Yon boast that you "expressed your disapprobation'' of the public lienors paid to DicKr.ftn at the time. Well, perhaps you were right. did not nor did I feel it very decidedly. As VNor.oswonTn savs, of h s beau tiful little poem about the Hainbow, I thought it "something very childish but very natural," and not tlie less commendable for being either. It snnkn deeper language than that of man-worship, to which you ascribe it: and when I saw Inviso, and Hbvant and Hailcck and RA.scnorT and Qnscv, and our best men, shnring in the enthusiasm I confess I felt somewhat proud of a sympathetic feeling. I know not whether thtso men are ashamed of it now or not: for my own parti think it infinitely more nnnoraoie to the American character than the very undignihed fit of vexation and nnger into which wo were thrown by the rumor that our Into guest i i.-j.l.. -.j;..i i ...f... . . icuucu uuituiu our iiosjiiminy. ii ne cues 1 m sure it will show him to be much baser than those he abuses ; and with this I console myself. Hut I sm inclined to "wait nnd see" ; and so I think is VLRMONT RHODE ISLAND WHO ARC THE HEAL riUENDS OT SUFFRAGE. We ask every intelligent voter in Masacl.ti. netts, who is willing fairly am, justly to enn'id. er the subject, to watch with attention :.nd dill gence the tortuous, treacherous nn.l mini itti-i pled faction.-, course of tlir- leaders of the Lo. cotoco parly, more especially thosp f this state in reiorcnce to the recent difficulties in Uho.le Island. While all their professions, their idle. empty and unmeaning clamor, their pretended but unroll zeal for universal sufliago, aro in tended solely for factious and nnrtirniii-nnen. without any desiro or expectation of extending trie right ot sutlrage all their act,-, both past and present, show conclusively their hypocrisy and insincerity. All thoir acts must "show to u.cij ra m,., ioiiiii ll,.l ll.ny had nlbor i . ' . ,.' "l,i HO Ollior Wlhll 1 nl f CZ, ', n,"" ,J?CIm"' "an a:'1" source of party capital. I hits far, these pre- tended friends of sulirago have thcinoplv-r. ben the puneipal means of keeping from 'ho disfranchised citizens of Uhodo Island the privi lege of voting. The time is not immemorial, when thn pirly now pretending tu ho so eager in the cause of FufHio-p, had the entire aceen. cleticy in Uhodo Island. When, in 191)0, Mar tin Van Huron obtained tho vote of that Stale, and the Locofoco parly had tho entire control the Governor, ,m unanimous Locofoco Senate, and a' majority in tho House who then heard a word in favor of the right of MilTrage, from tfieso new tledged champions of tho rights of man I When a liberal, fair and rightful rnnsti ttition was oilered, not siv month? ago, to the people cf Rhodn Hand, by a legal Convention, who then prevented its adoption! Who then tetarded and prevented, for an indefinite period, this very right of Miflragc vvh ch the.-e brazen faced hypocrites protend to favor? The an pwor is unnecessary. These very men who would make the people believe, if thoy could, that they are tho evcluive friends of sufi'rago these very men turned "the scale ngainsf the extension of the right of suffrage, atill, for the time defeated it. liven now, "while the real friends of sufliago are onc moro showing their sincerity and honesty of purpose, by atrointit ing anew to givo tho people of Uhodo Island a just and equitable constitution, who is throwing every possible obstacle in their way, and doing all they can, by every moans the mo-t disreputl able, to prevent success in this l.iudihle under taking ! These f-ame Locofoco leaders, who, if you would believe their professions and thoir hollow rliiims, aro the exclusive and only friondB of the right of sitlliuge, the rights (if mail, iSic. ! Witness their condemnation nnd denunciations, in advance of any knowledge of the Constitution to bo propound by tho Conven tion of the real friends of sulfrage at Newport. Witness their attempts to prevent any extension of the right of suffrage, by opposing every oth er, except one they know cannot be adopted a fraudulent and infamous conspiracy of unprinci pled and designing men, to thrust themselves into p.-,vvr against the wishes of the peonlo of Rhode Island. They know full well that the en styled constitution, under which tho craven and would bc-murderer Dorr, went through the farce of an election, is of itself a fraud", and can never be adopted, as it never has been, bv a majority of the citizen- of Rhode Mund. 'In furtherance of thoir desire to keep thin que.s. tion Hill open, and a source of politic;.) .vita tion, we fee them, with professions of a desire for tha cMcnsion of suffrage, using the very means which thoy know is thu only one by which they ran hope to defeat and prevent tho object they profesK lo desire. They oppose, and do all they can to prevent, tho adoption of any consti tution excepting nno only, which they know al fonevercati bo adopted, and which thoy do not urge with any hope of its adoption, but with a sole view to political capital. Hut, on tho other hand, tho sincerity and lion csty of purpose of the real friends of huftrai'e, is shown less by their professions than by their acts. Rcfolutely opposed to violence, blood, shed and rapine, they have, in spito of thu ob. taclea which faction, Locofocoistn and foreign invasion, have placed in their way, pcrspyerin"'. ly endeavored to give to tho peoplo of Rhode Island ajust and equitable constitution. They hive been foiled onco by tho exclusive.

While wa are pre eluded, by the crowded statu of our columns and tho length of our correspondent's re marks, from making a full reply to him this week, justice to otirself requires from us ;i few woids by way of explanation.

In the one character, he appeared to us to be a writer of considerable merit and a young man of respectability and prom ise. In iho oilier he resembled a blackguard of tho coarsest grain, a rude, unmannerly coxcomb. We were led to regard the let ter as a genuine, hona jidc production of Dickens, ns well from tho fact that it had been published as such in several of our best and most respectable journals, as that it was written in thn same vein of scttr rihty and vulgar aliuso which had formed so conspicuous a feature in the writings of other hnglislt travellcis in this country. Wo arc gratified, however, to know that tin odium of its authorship docs not atliirh to the name ol Mr. Dickens, and we sincerely I .1.... .!.

When the letter in question first made its appear ance, vvo wero absent from our editorial post and weru in a situation where we could not see the papers regularly. The consequence was that we had not read the offensive letter until ft few days before its appearance in our columns, and wo had never even heard, at that time, that its authenticity was denied by any one, and, least of all, by "the friends of Mr. Dickens ," "men who weie in inti mate corrcsjwmlcncc with him, and vvlio had every possible opportunity to know." Nor aro we await' now, exept from our corres pondent's declaration, that any such semi official, authoritative denial of the letter had been intiile. All this wns will known to our correspondent, for we had so informed him ourself moro than a week before his com munication was written.

Tho peculiar position of Mit. gave unusual interest to the ceremonies, and, from the time of the first announcement of the meeting to the day it was to take place, the public of all parties had been looking to it with the hope, and indeed for the most part with an expectation that ho would mako it tlie occasion for a full and explicit exposition of his political rela tions with President Tvler, and of the atti tudo hu holds and purposes to maintain In wards tho two gteat parlies ol the country. To sumo extent he has done this ; nnd though not us fully, in all re?pect3, as some had anticipated, jet, all things considered, as fully as could, pel haps, Ii tvo been reasona bly requited. Wu havo not room for a full report of his speech in our paper this week, but the fol lowing abstract embraces its principle and most interesting prints : He be .iius with some local and personal references very happily conceived nnd expressed, and then states the circumstances of bis call to the cabinet by President Harrison.

Our readers will lecollect tint Congreii passed two bills, just before the close of tho session, ono to repeal thtt 20 per cent provi so in tho Land Distribution Act.and the other to provide for tho taking of testimony in cases of contested Elections. Roth these Dills were passed by large majorities in both branches of tho LegUl iturr, and both have been defeated In John Tyler by the opera tion of the Pocket Veto. We find the fol lowing remarks on lids subject in a late number of the National Intelligencer. Another Ketainep Hill Itesides the IMI tn . peal the proviso in the Land Distribution Act, ths 1'besioent ufthet'mttd Smtes withheld bis signature Iroin the bill which passed t'on.tess prescribing the mode of taking evidence in cases o' Contested Klec lions, rv'or did he return it, but kent it in bis hands. Uy this retention of it the lull is rejected. Such re tention is in tlleei a Veto, without giving to the two 1 louses of Congress the opportunity of repassing the bill; a mode of defeating the will of the l'cople, as ex pressed through their ltepresentattves, even more ex ceptionable than the simple Veto. We can imagine no bill, likely to pass Congress, which the President could hive vetoed wuh less pro priety linn ihis.
