Love's fond tellings--the plighted vow,
And the glory enshrined on beauty's brow,
And the lustrous eye, and the bosoms swell
In the glad, glad heart of the bless'd one dwell.
A vision of time - Youth's days have past,
As the eagles rush on the mountain blast;
And years with the hues of the stormy sky,
In the darkened paths of the future lie.
Alas! that the star-lit dreams of bliss,
Which hallow'd the heart like an angel's kiss,
Should live but in days of fleeting power,
Should die ere the passing of manhood's hour.

BY ELLEN DARLINGTON.

TO BLEACH WOOL, SILKS, STRAW BONNETS,

&c. Put à chafing-dish, with some lighted charcoal, into a close room, or large box; then strew an ounce or two of powdered brimstone on the hot coals. Hang the articles in the room, or box, make the door fast, and let them hang some hours. l'ine colored woolens are thus sulphured before dyed, and straw bonnets are thus bleached.

CEMENT FOR CRACKED AND BROKEN VESSELS.

To half a pint of milk, put an equal quantity of vinegar, in order to curdle it; then separate the curd from the whey, and mix the whey with the whites of four or five eggs, beating the whole well together. When it is well mixed, add a little quick lime, through a sieve, until it has acquired the consistency of a thick paste. With this cement, broken vessels, and cracks of all kinds, may be mended. It dries quickly, and resists the action of fire and water.

EAU DE VEAU.

Boil a calf's foot in four quarts of river water, till it is reduced to half the quantity ; add half a pound of rice, and boil it with crumb of white bread steeped in milk, a pound of fresh butter, and the whites of five fresh eggs; mix with them a small quantity of camphor and alum; and distil the whole. These ingredients are best distilled by being put in a bottle, and placed in boiling water. Eau de Veau is used as a wash to soften the skin.
