Flitting about withlow.soft hum, Regardless of my eager gaze, Thou dost about theim flowers come, Reminding mc of childhood's days, When oft I listened to thy praise, Fair emblem of blest Industry ! That I might learn to mark thy ways, And cmulale " The Busy Bcc !" Thoe days of happy childhood, when This earth was gay, bedecked with flowers, And every smiling hill and glen, To mc was fair as Eden's bowers : Enchantment threw around mine hours Her magic spell : while Time flew on Anil thus through sunshine and through showers Those sweetest days of life have gone ! And now, Earth has a charming smile Her sky is passing bright and fair, Though sometimes floating clouds awhile Betoken storms of grief and care ; I've seen thick darkness brooding there. When soon these clouds would pass away, And smiling hope an apect wear More bright, and beautiful, and gay! Thy life, thou " little busy bee," Is one ol bliss unmixed with wo, Among sweet flowers roving free, On the green banks where ever flow Bright w aters, laughing as they go Sipping from golden cowslip s cup. And tmm the trembling violet low, The honey thou dost treasure up. The winter conies, yet in thy cells Enough to feast upon the while, Till spring comes forth with fairy bells. To bless thee with her wonted smile ! Thou goest to the sunny isle, Anu to the woodv niomualn's height, While nature ever doth beguile, And yield her sweets which give delight. Oh, would that man would learn from thee To seek in Summer's early day, Amid Life's flowers, lair and free. Those sweets that never know decay : That when his youth has passed away, And Flowers have laded one by one. His joys might through theJWinler slay, 'I ill all his happy days arc done ! But now, farewell, thou charming Bee ! I've lingered near thee nut in vain ; For in thy busy course I see How mortals may true good obtain : Then, ere my summer sun doiti wane, .May I lay up a winter store, That, though the flouerscome not again, Will last till time with me is o'er .'

Speaker LenthaM, a barrister of small notice, returned for Gloucester, and very unex pectedly thrown into tho position of tho first gen tleman of England, is seated in a comfortable cushioned receptacle, surmounted by tho Royal Arms. The House is sitting in tot. Stephens Chapol a lone narrow chamber of the 14th century, with a western entrance, and a large eastern window ; in advance of tho middle of which, at tho -distance of some few feet, stands the Speaker's Chair.

I would wish to bring to the notice of the public, through the medium of the Cullivator,nn important improvement in the wind-mill, a mo del of which, you may recollect, was exhibited nt mv hotel last winter, by Dr. Bridgman, of Ca botvillc, Mass. r It is lielievcd that, by the aid of this improve ment, wind power may bo used to advantage in many situations where water or nothing bettor can lie had. Tho great objection generally to a machine being worked by wind, is tho unsteadiness of the power, varying from a stand still to the great est velocity, at which speed it is liable to injure any machinery attached to it. A stationary power, which can be applied to thn various operations of the farm and out build- incs. would Ixs a desiratum with every farmer P ' . , I.; 1:1 i , Whose business is on anyming iiku an emargcu Kcale. There aro a great many operations on the farm which may be economically performed by a stationary power j that is, by water, by steam, by horses, or by wind. The same power that is nnnlicd to tho threshing of grain, ciittincr fodder, nr tho grinding of apples, may, if properly ad justed, and with a trilling additional expense, bo annlied to the crushing of grain for farm stock, or oven for grinding for family use to tho saw ing of wood, slitting of boards, to the pumping of water, turning of tho grindstone, and various other stationary uses. A friend on Statcn Is land erected a wind-mill on the old and com mon principle, which lie applied to fourteen dif ferent purposes. The loilowing description of ono of these wheels, now in successful operation, I clip from a Chickopce paper. By publishing it, you will not only confer a tavor on tho ingenious Inven tor and'proprietor, but aid the farmer and median ic. C. S. UEMENT. Albany. Juno, 1810. On Friday last we visited a new, and, wo think, highly valuable invention of Mr. A. Jndd. nf this villain), called a " Centrific Wind-Wheel." For simplicity of construction and efficiency of action, It exceeds anytning in tne snapo ol a wind-mill that we havo ever seen. Tho princi ples on which it is constructed are entirely new; and the inventor, in conjunction with Dr. J. B. Bridgman, who, as joint proprietor, have obtain ed letters patent for the invention. The wheel resembles a common overshot or breast water wheel, except its motion is horizontal ; and is propelled by tho application of wind upon the in ner surface. By this application, tho entire cir .cn nf tho wheel is kept constantly be fore the wind, tho wholeforce of which is brought to bear square upon the lover, producing a pow er three or four timos as great as any other wind wheel in operation. What adds greatly to tho valuo of this wheel is the fact that It is enclosed lI V Vaitsl 1 M -OU.M. 1 OPENING OF THE LONG PARLIAMENT. upon ono circuit, amounted to the then unpar- illolcd, and, in the estimation ol a rival practi ioner, almost incredible sum of 700, Maynard sat for Totncts. As we advance beyond the gallery, wo pass, on our right hand, tho usual seat of Pym, one of the members for Tavistock, and tho recognised leader of the popular party. On the floor of the House, at some little distnnce in front of the Speaker's Chair, stands the Clerk's CHIEF JUSTICE MAItSII.VLL.

Ho had proceeded some way in it. when the crier, aroused from his rcterie, found what was going on, nnd with the quickness of thought, stepped into the bar room, between tno Uo, water closet to 1)3 scoured, and everjthing in ulo tidy for Sunday."

Withinavery few days afterwards, troops of horscmon, bearing petitions for redress of grievances, flocked into London, even from far distant counties ; and grave, solier men descanted with solemn earnestness upon many enormities in Church and State. Some poured nut their lamentations over tho attempts made in high places to " evaporate and dispirit the iower or religion, by drawing it out into solemn, specious formalities ; into obsolete an tiquated ceremonies new furbished up ;" others were indignant that all of " the religion" were branded under the name of Puritans, so that " whosoever squares his actions by any rule,' cither divino or human, tie is a rurilan ; who soever would bo governed by the King's he is a Puritan ; he that will not do whatsoever other men would have bun do, he is a Puritan. Others, again, affected by mora worldly consi derations, exclaimed against "the great and in tolerable burden of ship money," the imposition of which, at tho mere pleasure of the crown, made " the farmers faint, and tho plough to go heavy !" against coat and conduct money ; against tho compulsory demand for arms, people being threatened, " llvou will not send your arms, you shall go yourselves ;" and against the giant, the monster grievance of at least seven hundred monopolies.

Article on the Ijtmg Parliament, in Edinburgh Reiteu: Grave of John Randolph. A writer in the Norfolk Jlcacon describes a visit to thn grave of ttrts remarkable man.

Shortly, tho houses that were occupied by tho great and eccentric genius, appeared through tho intervening trees, built up in tho mid-t of the woods. Not a stump to lie seen, not a bush grubb.-d up; all standing, us if tho foot of man had nover trodden there. Mr. Ran dolph would not stiller the primitive aspect of things to be disturbed in the leat. Not a tree, or branch, or switch, was allowed to be cut. During his absence in Europe, a linibof nn oak, projecting towards a window of ono of the hou ses, grew so near, that old Essex, fearing tho window would be broken, cut tho limb off. On Mr. Randolph's return ho at once discovered tho mutilation; old Essex was called up, and the reasons demanded for cutting off tho limb.
