Mr. Ilnrnp, llio autltur of "I tic Living Arc-," in Ins notice of Dickens, nnlcs a fiup;tilar pcctl liarily in the metrical nrrangcmunl of borne nf his Eenlelices. "A curious circumslanrp (says lie) isnbsorv able in a fjfeat pnrticui nf llie fcciics last men. tinned, wlncli it is possible may have been t lie result of linriiinnimis accident, nnd the author not even subsequently ftilly cnntfpious nf it. It is that they arc written In blank verse, nf irregular luetic and rhymes, which Sntitbcy and Shelly, and fnme ntbor pools have occasionally adopted. Tito passage properly divided into lines, will stand thus : NCM.Y'S PON'llKAIi. And now the be I the bdl She bad so often beard In tilpbl anil day, And listened 10 with solemn pleasure, I'Ven as n living voice Kims its remorsehss P for her, So young, so beautiful, so cood. De-repit ne, nnd vicorous life, And bloomiii2 youth, nnd hclphss infancy, Pouted forth nn crutches, in the pride of strength And health, in the full blush Of promise, the mere dawn of life To father round her tomb. Old men were there, Whose eye. were dun And senses fnilins Grand dames, who mi-ilit have ditd ten years ngo, And siill bun old the deal, the blind, the lame, The palsied. The living Iend in many shapes nnd forms, To see the closing of this early grave. What wa the death it w uld shut in, To that which still could crawl nnd creep nbovc it! Along the crowded path they I ore her now i Pure as the new-falliii snow That covered it: whose day on earth Had been as flertins. Under tint porch, where the had sat when In nieicy brought her 10 that p ncclul spot, She passed nr.nm, nnd the old church Hectived litr in its quid tliado. Throuodinut the whole of the above,, unimportant words have been omitted 111 and its; "jinml-i'.imos" has been rnbslituleii for "(jratid. mothers," and "e'en" for "almnjt." All that rrtn.iius is exactly as in llin nrifrinal ; not a ninglo word transposed, and the ptincluatioti the same to a comma. The brief homily that con cludes the funeral is profoundly beautiful. Oh ! it is haul to take to heart The lesson that such deaths will teach, Hut L'l no man reject it. For it is nno llint all must barn, And is a iniehiv, uuiursul truth. When deal!) stit'.ts down the beautiful nnd young, for every liaede form from which he lets The pariiuz spirit fiee, A liiind'id v irlues rise. In shapes of limey, charity and love, To walk the world and bless it. Uf every tear That sorrowing mortals shed on such green graves, Sonicgood is born, some yeiithr nai in e comes. IS'ut a wind of the original is eliaiictl in the above qiiointions, which is worthy of the best pissa;;e.-i 111 Woidsuorth, ami thus, jncctiiijr cm the eeinmon .;rouud ofa deeply trulliful ecnti ment, the two most unlike men in the literatuie of the country are brought into tho closest np-pro.-.-imalion.. Somethino; of a similar kind of versification in the pto-e may bo discovered in chapter 77 of " il iruaby Huibn." '1'he follow in,' is Irnin the concluding pamgrapli of "Ntrlt. o!,ts ,icl:!eby" : 'I ho grass was green above the dm.l boy's grave, Trodden by feet so small and light, That not a daisy dropped its head I!cnoi:h their pressure. Throii-jh all iho spring and summer time G-ulandsof frc-b IIoers wnalhed by infant hands Ucsled upon the stone. To theto selections of Mr. llornoV, many as curious might he adileil. As all nur readers nnj not have observed this cause of the smoothness with woich many passages in Dickens's wri- ,ings fall on llio ear, we havo thiill-lit tho.. abo.-e worth trrnsrribiug. A friend has c.illei' our attention to thus'! winch follo.v, from the Attiorican Nolo. We copy them verbatim, giving, however, to the words the arrangement ol verse : NIAGARA. I think in every quiet season now, Sell do those waters roll, nnd, and roar, And tumble all day long j Siill are the rniribonB spanning them A bunJre fat below. Still, when the sun is on ihcm, do theyshino And grow hl,o molten uold Still, when the day is c.luomy jn tbcy fall Like snow, or siem lo crumble anay, Like the limit of n arcat chalk cliff. Or roll adown the nek like den e while smoVe. Put always does the mighty stream appear To die ns il comes down ; And always frum the unfathomable grave Atises ill n t tremendous ghost of spray And mist which is mur laid : Which has haunted this place Willi iho same diead solemnity, finee (Silliness brooded on the deep, And that fnsi flood bifoto the Dthn-e Light Came rushing on Creation nt tho word of God. To any one who reads this wo need not sav that but tbrco lines in it vary at all from tho closest requisitions of an Iambic movement I he measure is precisely of the kind which .Mr, Snuthey to often used. For tho reader'n con venience, we copy from Tluiaba his well re membered hues on night as an instance " How bcautif.d is Night I A dewy freshness fills tlie silent nir j No mist obscures, nor cloud, nor speck, nor slain Itreaks tho sereno ol heaven. In full orbed glory yonder Moon divino Rolls through I lie dark blue depths, lieneaih her steady ray The desert circle spreads, Liko the round ocean, girdled with tho sky. How beautiful i. Night 1" From llio American 'Notes wo extract tho following passage, only changing its form, as in lines on Niagara : " Cant as wo may (says Mr. Dickon.) anil as wo shall to the end of all things, il is very much harder for tho poor to bo virtuous than the rich, ami the good that is in llieur shines tho butter for il." And, in another etrahi, ho roiiiiiiues, in prose pruned vcrto "In many a noble mansion lives n man The best of husbands and of fathers Whose private worth in both capacities Is justly lauded to the skies Put bring bint hero upon this crowded deck Snip from bis fair young wife her silken drcsa And jewels unbind her braided hair Stamp early wiinkleson her brow Pinch her palt) cheek With earn and much privation Array her faded form In coHM'scly patched "attire Let there bo nothing but his love To set her forth and deck her out And you shall put il to the proof indeed. " So change bis station in the world be shall sea In those yonni' lliinis who climb about bis knee, Not records of his wealth nnd name, Put hull! wre'tlcrs with him for his daily bn ad. So tinny poachers on bis seunty meal, So many units lo diu.h His every sum of comfort, Arvl fjiiiber to i educe its small amount. " In I rtii of the endearments Of childhood in its sweetest aspect, Heap upon him nil ils pains nn I wants, lis -le' lussos nnil ills, Ils frcifiilnc-s,, and q'ieruiou endurance; Lu its pratile be. Not of inonging infant fancies, Put of cobl, nnd thirst, nnd hunger And if fatherly affection Outlive all this, "And he bo patient, watchful, tender, Carclul of his children's lics, And mindful nlwnys of their joys and sorrows Then scud him back lo Parliament, And pu'pit, nnd loquaiter se-sions, And when he henrs fine talk Of the depravity of those, who livo From hand lo mouth, and labor haul to do it, Let tutu sprnk up ns one who knows, And tell those holders furth that they, By parallel with such a class, Should be high .mgels in their daily live0. And lay but humble siege to heaven at last." The pasr-njres are in themselves so beautiful and valuable that we make no apology for copy, ine them, even to those who have analyzed Mr. Dickens's stylo of compo-ition, and are familiar with its secrets. Richmond Compiler. THE i)yPTED DAUGHTER. 11V MISS MAItfilA t'.ussni.i.. Concluded.) When quite young, Mr. Hoyden, in oppo sition to the wishes nf his haughty family, had married u gill of, what they termed, low extr.u'tinii, whose dazzling; beauty was equal led onlv bv her heurtlessuess ami her dtspo sitiiin for inttiotie. After two or three years spent in domestic contentions, she cloned with a fashionable foieigner, leaving bcliini her onlv child, a boy about two veins old. This deeply wounded her husband's prill nod his piidu ilone, fur them w.i no efTec- lion to be wounded, the inaiii.ign having been tilt; result of mere impulse. When left alone with his child, Mr Ilayden's character under went a modification. lie began lo love that child as he had never before loved any thine. And the bov ws worthy of his father s love. s he grew older, his character revealed none of his father's violent pride or his mo ther's spirit for intrigue.

Ho knew his father and felt that ho would be indexible ; but he loved Mary, and while, ho felt that she was innocent, he could not bo false to that lovo which, like a sweet flower, had gradually un folded to bless him with its inspiration. Ilu could not trifle with his relation to her, nnd n few weeks before her father's death they were married. Ilu wrole again to his father, informing him of his muriiage, giving htm his reasons tor il, defending Mary fioin his indignalion, and earnestly enlre iling his forbearance. In reply, ho received n considerable sum nf money, accompanied hy Ins lather s curse, and a tearfully uttered command, that he should never again prifsuiiiu lo return homo, or see his father's faro. " From that iiitie,"'added Dr. Seely, Mr. Uuyden h is not been heard to utter his snn's name. Francis finally went with his wife to England, bill, 1 supposo, his father has never Iii-iii i fioin him nnd knows not whether ho n still living."

Ho had met Clara several times, and though not much struck with her appearance al first, had be gun to study her rather closely, and in so doing perceived the difference helween beau ty and loveliness.
