SELF-EXAMINATION.

Thou 'rt growing old, thy head is gray,
Life, like a spectre, glides away ;
The evening shades are gathering fast,
Thy fleeting day will soon be past.

Thus on the verge of life's decline, << Be solemn recollection mine,"

Review the hours for ever gone,
The hour of death comes hast’ning on.

Ah! has improvement, conscience say, Kept pace with life's advancing day? Have all the hours thou hast enjoyed, To the best purpose been employed ?

SUMMARY OF NEWS. CONGRESS.—The Ten Regiment Bill has been further discussed in the Senate, by Dix of New York, Clarke of Rhode Island, and Phelps of Ver. mont, the former defending the war and the bill, and the two latter condemning both.

In the House, a bill has been reported, making an appropriation of nearly $13,000,000, to meet the deficiencies of the present fiscal year.

The Judiciary Committee of the Senate of New York, to whom was referred a bill to prevent State officers from arresting or detaining persons claimed as sugitives from slavery, and to prevent State judges and magistrates from taking cogni. zance of such cases have made a report adverse to the proposed legislation. They declare that the power of retaking fugitive slaves is with the owner, assisted by the United States officers; that the power of legislation, in relation to fugitives, is ex. clusively in the National Legislature, and the State Legislature is prohibited from acting on the subject. A decision of the New York Supreme Court is cited to show that Congress cannot constitutionally rest in the State Courts, any portion of the judicial power of the United States, por can it vest in the Siate magist rates, sheriffs, or other officers, power to execute the national laws. They conclude, that as State officers cannot legally act onder the law of Congress, it is unnecessary to prohibit them from doing so by statute, and i hat the common law is sufficient, in its civil and criminal remedies, to punish all State officers who inter. fere with fugitive slaves. Resolutions against the further extension of slavery, have passed the House by yeas 108, nays 5—and the Senate by yeas 26,

How much was passed in airy dreams,
In idle, visionary schemes ?
But i hough this time was spent amiss,
How much was spent far worse than this?

Has not thy breast with anger burned,
And ill for ill hath oft returned ?
Nay, hast thou not misunderstood-
And evil hast returned for good ?

Hast thou been thankful to that Pɔwer
Who saved thy life in danger's hour ?
With blessings who hath crowned thy days ?
Say what returns of grateful praise !

[ocr errors]

When He chastised, think-hast thou then
Submissive to his chastening been ?
Say, didst thou not aloud repine,
When heaven had crossed some fond design?

nay 1.

Or if thy speech hath been restrained,
Has not a secret murmuring pained ?
Has envy ne'er thy breast annoyed,
At good which others have enjoyed ?

Hast thou, according to thy store,
Been liberal always to the poor ?
And didst thou sympathetic grieve,
O'er ills which thou couldst not relieve ?

Hast thou been kind to all thy friends
Not seeking merely sel tish ends ?
And hast thou, from thy early youth,
Adhered to plain and simple truth?

The Wisconsin Constitutional Convention has adopted, by a decided vote, a resolution instructing the Committee on General Provisions to inquire into the expediency of incorporating into the Bill of Rights, an article probibiting all State officers from rendering any official assistance for the arrest or imprisonment of any person claimed as a fugitive from slavery.

Mexico.- Rumors have been prevalent for some days, that Peace negotiations were in progress, with a probability of a successful result. They come, however, in such a questionable shape, that very little reliance can be placed in them.

The Acadia. By the arrival of this steamship, which reached Boston on the 1st instant, European news, fourteen days later than that previously received, has come to hand. Further failures in London and Glasgow are announced ; and the price of cotton and breadstuffs has declined. The distress in the south and west of Ireland has become appalling. The anthority of France in Africa, appears to be confirmed, by the surrender of the Arab Chief, Abdel Kader. Allelaide, sister to Louis Philippe, died on the last day of 1847.

Were all thy dealings strictly just,
And faithful always to thy trust ?
Have those who watched thee never found
Thy footsteps on forbidden ground ?

Hast thou been thankful for that light
Which heaven has shed o'er nature's night?
Hast thou the gospel rightly prized,
And ne'er its sacred truths despised ?

Say, hast thou kept thy heart from sin ?
Has all been pure and right within ?
Didst thou in secret always be
As seeing Him who seeth thee?

The past reviewed with solemn care,
Will call for penitence and prayer
To Him alone who can forgive,
And bid the penitent to live.
