Why Jo I love her ? 'Tis not that hei beauty

'Tis not that in filial atl'ection and duty
She hag not an eqjal on earth j
Nor is it because sihe has genius and talents,
Willi all that the s hools can instil,
A nth cultured intellect, fancy to balance
'Tis som 'thing more cxijui.site still.

Grisi and Mario, go to the Fourteenth
Street Opera House, next week. H.u k
ett hns barely paid expenses with them
at (he C. stle Garden.
Talking of the Opera, reminds me of
the lady who haunts Mrio. The seat
taken for the season, under the name of
"Coutl," is filled every Opera night, by
the phister-of-paris looking female, who
has adop'ed this cognomen. Hi herlo, it
has g"!ierally been supposed that she w.is
a manager's myth n lady got up for ef
fect, by Hacked, and romanced into noto
riety, ut so much per line. This is amis
take. To my certain knowledge, she is an
English woman of large fortune mad as
a March hare, no doubt and just as des
perately in love with Le Marquis, as a
I nr.; tic might be expected to be. She
brought to this country a large sum, in
Bank of England notes, and letters of
credit, drafts, Sic, from the London Bank
ing House, of "Coutts Si Co.," to a large
amount. I have seen several of these
letters, drafts, Sic.,nnd know that Brown,
Brothers Si Co., cash her bills, without
hesitation. She buys largely at Stewart's,
Genin's and other fashionable stores, pay
ing for her purchases, in fiffy pound let-
tern of credit, bearing the signature and
water-mark of "Coutls Si Co.." and her
own endorsement. Her real mme, is
'Frances Sarah Gyle," which she blfives
in a very sane looking hand, to the afore
said llfty pounds. Every time the visits
tlie Opera, she arrays herself in a new
eostiune, and, if I may j.nlge from her ap
pearance, gives her face a new coat of
v l ite-wash. She is slaying at the St.
Nicholas, and has with her, a very nice
I. joking "lady's maid," who seems quite
in distress ut the vagaries of her n.jss
tre, whom fche is very anxious to get
back to England again. Mario has hud
an interview with the lair ihmenteo, since
her arrival, but what passed thereat, this
deponent not knowing, cannot say.

Mormox Emigration to Kansas.
We learn from one of the Mormon faith,
that movements are on foot to establish a
"stake" for Mormon settlers in the Ter
ritory of Kansas about one hundred miles
interior from the town of Kansas. A
small delegation from this city are prepar
inz to start in the course of one or two
weeks, uniting with others at S'. Louis,
which will probubly swell the number to
seme two hundred famalies. They go
out in charge of Elder Eratus Snow, one
of the twelve, who is expected to preside
over the settlement. Mr. Snow has been
to Europe about a year since, and labored
successfully in Sweden, Denmark and
other central countries on the continent,
inducing a considerable number to em
brace that faith, and, as a necessary con
sequence, to emigrate to the appointed
gathering places in the western territories
of this continent. Companies cf these
converts are expected to urrive in a few
weeks, who will be sent forward by the
arjen's 0f the ''stake" at St. Louis to the
settlement in Kansus. Alton Courier.

the difference betwee friendship and
love is too precious and too powerful an
agency to be thrown away in the educa
tion of either. I believe it to be an acen
cy which God meant we should make use
of to promote the refinement, the progress
and the elevation of them both. 1 believe
it m.iy be made to supercede many of our
present coarse and rude iiistrumenfs of
discipline the goads and bludgeons of
punishment which ure tmployed to rouse
young men from the sluperfaction of idle
ness, or beat them back from the gateways
"And what a state of society does it
invincibly argue among parents, and in the
cornmunily at large, if young men and
young women eannot be brought together
'o pursue those ennobling studies and t?
receive those apt instructions which pre
cmincntly fit them for the highest duties
of their common life, without mutual per
il! And wiiere, in reason or in divine
commands, is their either warrant or pre
text for the doctrine that those whom
God mingles together in the family, by
birth, and whom, through the sacred ordi
nance of marriage, lie designs for a still
closer relation in after life; where I ask,
is their any authority, human or divine,
for seizing an 1 violently seperating these
same parlies, for four or six or ten of the
middle years of their existencer" this
very years when they can best prepare
themselves, by the elevation of whatever
is in them of gojJ and" the suppression of
whatever is in them of evil, for a f uttir
companionship so intimate as to b less in
identity. Such seperations is obviously
unnatural; and if it be necessary for tlie
preservation of sexual purity, it is time
lhat the whole community should take
the alarm, and hasten to devise a less mon
TnuTir every word of it. Cut it out
and commit it to memory:
"We should make it. a principle to ex
tend the hand of friendship to every man
who discharges faithfully his duties, and
maintains good order who manifests a
deep interest in the welfare of general
society whose deportment is upwright
and whose mind is intelligentwithout
stopping to ascertain whether he swings
a hammer or draws a thread. There is
nothing so distant from all natural claim
hs tlie reluctant, the backward sympathy,
the forced smile, the checked conversa
tion, tlie hesitating compliance, tho well
off are apt fo manifest to those a little
lower down, with whom, in the compari
son of intellect and principles of virtue,
they frequently sink into insiguifiujnee."
J"1 Emigration to the United this year,
it is thought, will reach four hundred
thousand.' By the census of 1850, tha
population of the United States was over
twenty-three millions, of which, eighteen
millions were native whiles, over two mil
lions were foreign born, thirty-nine thou
sand were slaves. From 1340 to 1850,
1 -5-9 8'JO foreigners came to our shores.
From 1820 to 1830, tho average number
was only 20,000 a year. From 1S30 to
184U, i.bout 70 000 a year. The Irish
famine i.n.l the continental revolutions in
1847 increased the emigration to 240,000
in 1847, and to x300,000 in 1S50. The
total number of emigrants to the L'niteJ
States since 1700 and living in 1850, to
gether w'uh descendants, amounted ( when
the census was taken,) to 4 304,416.
The greut number of deaths among for
eigners in the United Suites is apjuilling,
and average, it is thought, ut least fifty
