Ye may bring fresh roses and garlands twine
To crown ths goblet of ruby wine,
When ye gather around the festal board
And the sparkling draught amid mirth li
Ye may call it ths nectar that gods may sip,
As It deepens ths coral on beauty's tip ;
Ye may rcho its praises In music and song,
As it circles brightly In pleasure's throng.
But there ts t tlrr.e when the roy w ine,
Though in cups of gold and crystal it shine,
Though it foam up brightly in ruby light,
Wl'l lose the power to waken delight ;
When all the wine that ever was poured
In princely halls at the festive board,
Would be gladly given, could it but bring
One pure cool draught from the limpid spring,
When fever burns in each throbbing vein, .

Spicy Correspondence A frne

' We are assured by a friend who is per
sonally cognizant of what he states, that
the following piquant correspondence is
genuine, A gentleman whose 'business
calls him a good deal from hoine is ac
customed to give the custody of his cor
responuertce to bis wiie, an intelligent is
day, who, in obedience to instructions,
opens all letters that come in her bus
band's absence ; answer such of them as
she can, like a confidential clerk, and for
wards the rest to her liege lord at such
places as he may have designated at his
departiT. During a recent absence of
hf r TwMianl, tbe My rertivcJ a letter
of which the following (oiimnuiiig names,
dutec, and places,) is a true copy :
. Mr stti Sim: 1 saw a fine picture
of you yesterday, and fell in love with it,
as 1 diii with the original in W , last
winter, when I saw you more than an
hour, though I suppose you did not see me
among so many. I fear you will think
mo forward in thus addre?iug you j but
I trust you ore as noble und unsuspecting
as you are handsome and brilliant. Per
haps you would liko to know something
ab mi me your ardent admirer ! Well,
i am not very good at description, but 1
wiil say 1 am not married, (though you
are, I am told.) My friciidj tell me 1
have not u pretty face, but only a good
figure. 1 am rather petit, have black
eyes, black huir.and a dark complexion
that u, 1 am what is culled a 'brunette.'
I nm stopping for a few weeks with tny
brother-in-law and Mster in this town, and
I dearly wish you would meet me there
before I return to V . At afiy rate,
do not fail to write mo at lea.t a few
word to tell mo whether I shall ever see
you again, and know you more intimately.
Forgive my boldness, and believe me,
Your friend, ."
To this letter the wife, who, by the by,
has not the least knowledge of the person
to whom bhe was wrrtmg, made the fol
lowing answer :
"MaDAMoiscLLti You letter of the
. instant, addressed la Mr. , was
duly received. Mr. , who is my
husband, directed me, when he left home
some days 056 to open all his letters, and
to answer any of them thut 1 convenient
ly could. As you seem to be rather im
patient, I will answer your letter nivself.
1 do not think your description of yourself
will pleaie Mr. . 1 huppeu to know 1
that he dislikes black eye, aud hates
brunettes mot decidedly. It u quite true
(as you seem to suppose,) thai lie judges
of women as he does of horses; but 1 do
not think your inventory of your 'point
is complete) enough to be satisfactory to
him. You omit to mention your hight,
weight, wind, speed, and .here the
word is illegible. Taking your charms
at your own estimate. 1 doubt whether
they wi!l prove sufficiently attractive to
draw htm as far as B , merely for
the satisfaction of comparing thin with
the kchedule. . You say y ou trust my liu
band in 'unsuspecting.' 1 think that is his
nautre ; but yet he is used to drawing in
ferences, which are sometimes as unkind
as susj icious iou say you are unmar
ried. My advice to you is that you marry
somebody as soon as possible. In uiojI
cases I would not recommend haste; hut
in yours I am convinced there is truth 111
the proverb which speaks of the danger
of delay. Should you be so fortunate as
to ft a husband, which may God merci
fully grant, my opinion 13 that , you will
consider any womun wtio should writ linn
such a letter as this of yours, impertinent,
and, perhaps, immodest. ' '
1 will deliver , your note to Mr. 1
when he returns, and also a copy of my
reply, which 1 am sure he, will approve.

The "Grand Father" in his reply said t
"Why is it that our red brethren are
poor ? 1 will tell them how to become
rich. They will always be poor while
they live by the chase and make war upon
each other whilst they live in this way
they must be poor. The while men are
rich because they work, because they
plough iho soil and sow grain, and reap
the harvest and live in their own houses.
If the Indians will follow their example
they wi'l be rich, too, because the Great
Spirit looks down with the same kindness
upon His red and His white children J for
they are all brethren, and without work
no man can become rich.
1 have one request to make of my chil
dren of the Pawnee and the Ponca tribes,
and if it li granted it will make me very
happy, and! will feel thai their Great
Father and my Great Father well ap
proves of the deed. I understsnd that
theso tribes both brave men ll brave
men have been at war and, whilst they
continue at war with each other, they can
never improve their condition; and 1 pray
that the Great Spirit may at this moment
appear before me ; and 1 being a party to
it, I hope that he may cause them to make
peace and shake hands tith we, and
shake hnnds with each other, in token of
perpetual peace with each other."
After shaking hands with each other
and with the President they retired, high

A Second Iloblnson Crusoe.
A Van Dieman's land paper publishes
the following account of the discovery of
an Englishman on one of the South Sea
An English ship having senl a boat
ashore for water and fresh provisions, the
oliicer was astonished at the European
look uf some of the natives : manv were
light colored, and had unmistakable Eu
ropean countenances. I here were also
traces of civilization in the haunts of the
savages. Sev ral of the wigwams were
formed in a comfortable manuer, being
tolerably well thatched, with a narrow
opening for the doorway, and the fire
nlace in front, rieces of woou scooped
out served for buckets to carry water, and
kangoroo skins neatly cut and stitched
formed a convenient, resture ; these aud
other indications of ingenuity were soon
explained by the appearance of a while
man, clothed in a kangaroo sum cloak.
At first he was timid iu his approaches,
but when spoken to kindly, and wffered a
piece of. bread, he threw oft his reserve,
and after eating with apparent relish, he,
looked at the remainder as if endeavoring
to bring something to his recollection, lie
exclaimed, with symptoms of delight
slowing, in his face, "bread V Other,
English words soon, returned to bu mem
ory, and he was at last able to communi
cnte that his name was William Duckly
that he escaped from the encampment of
prisoners by ihe ship Ocean, formed by
the late Col. Collins, in attempting, agree
ably to the instructions of the British
Government, to form a settlement at Port
rhilip many years ago hat he pad lived
mor than thirty years with the tribe of
the Aborigines, whom he then met with
in the bush, and over which he had long
exercised the rule of a chief. He is a
very tall man, havin? served as a grena
dier is from fifty-eight to sixty years j of
age, and is in excellent health. He for
warded a petition to the Lieutenant Gov-
ernor; praying for a pardon, mainly with
a view; we presume, to enable him to re
main where he ia. This the. Governor
has granted, impressing the hope that he
wi'l endeavor to maintain an amicable in
let course between the Aborigines and the
white; for he ha.l already been -the
