On a rich morningin June, there stood
in the door of one of the numerous offices
attached to the far-fained State House of
Philadelphia, a youth of nineteen: The
winds of the hour were wafting his dark
hair around his forehead, and he seemed
to rejoice in the beauty of the day. The
air was full of the delicious fragrance from
the flowering trees, which lined the side-
walks on *every hand. The young men
was evidently pleased with himself and all
around him. He seemed to be watching,
with no inconsiderable earnestness, the
groups of ladies strolling in the shades, gli-
ding to and fro, on errands of sight-seeing
At last, there passed a young girl of'six-
teen, at whom he gazed with such fixed
attention, as to raise a blush upon her
cheek. She was a lovely being, with li-
quid blue eyes,.and hair that floated above
them, like 'pure floss sunshine, twisted in-
to whirls.' Her movements were graceful
is a fawn. The light of youth was about
her like an atmosphere:
"She drank the spirit of the golden day,
And triumphed in existence."
The young man followed her with his
eye, until she had nearly vanished among
he various persons promenading the long I
avenue, when he stepped in for, a moment, I
nd re-appeared with evident signs of hav- t
ng made preparations for a morning's
walk. He moved briskly along the pave.
Marion Harold was the only daughter of i
i widow. She --was a scholar, and daily 1
passed the Independence Square, on her s
vay to school. By degrees an acquain- I
dance, without introduction, was formed d
between herself and the youth whom I e
ave described. The simple act of accept- e
ng a proffered umbrella during a sudden I
bower, was the origin of their knowledge I
f each other. It soon ripened into intima- a
1Mauiice Ellison was a child of passion. a
Trom his boyhood, he had been wild and s
tful in his temperament; indignant against c
eproof,-strong in th6se bitter feelings a
against foes, which are supposed by the o
world to be sometimes a test of faithful- tl
ess to friends,-and open to every in- a
ulse which the prevailments of ardent w
blood, coursing through the veins of youth, S
would engender. He had good qualities, n
id engaging ones,-for, '.none are all te
il, -but they were choked by the sug- ei
estions of passion, by an overbearing spir- s(
and by the thousand inducements to in- o]
uity with which cities abound. c(
Marion Harold had been richly endow- a(
I by nature, and early education, with ly
complishments far beyond her years.- sc
ie, too, was ardent and susceptible.- ui
aurice was enthusiastic and devoted,- A
d they loved or seemed to love. With sh
r, it was a pure and affectionate attach- ed
ent: with him, it was-one of pride and th
pulse. He was not so desirous ofpos- bl
ssing her heart, as of subduing it. She ns
d been affluent, and was then cast down. de
ie death of her father had diminished the sp
ome of her remaining parent, and left of
her monetary affairs in confusion.- in
hen these were adjusted, a very insuffi- sta
nt annuity only remained. By elegant ly
edle work for rich families, by whom su:
was much employed, she continued to ou
)port herself and daughter not merely he

Ellison was proud to win the heart of pei
rion Harold--but too wicked to pay it he
h his own. He soon found that in him ed,
*whole affections were centered; and too
breathed to the ear of Hope, abused and
What was to be done ? By degrees,
Marion Harold awoke from her awful de-
lusion. She looked around upon the dark
abyss into which she had been drawn by
her betrayer,-she sought for reparation,-
she demanded the fulfilment of his mar-
riage vow, with tears and entreaties,-but
in vain. The lover had changed to the
tyrant. He walked the streets -with an
undaunted front, as if the air he breathed
was too tasteless for his nostrils. He said
nothing to his friends of the being he had
so foully wronged: her mother knew not
wither she was gone,-her departure was
veiled in obscurity.
Let that man tremble, who breaks down
the barriers that protect the bosom of Vir-
tue! There is in every heart a power to
revenge, and a power to rise. If, instead
of bursting the shackles of one error, only
to cling to another, the soul that has once
been led to evil would return, not all the
stigmatizing taunts on earth could awe that
self-sustained and lofty spirit. But alas !
when innocence has been corrupted, it usu-
ally sinks deeper and deeper, or else waits,
with cloaked revenge, for a time to wreak
itself upon the wronger.
Such was. the determination of Marion
Harold. She was undone; she pictured
to her excited mind the dark disgrace
which would gloom around her name, un-
less she lost it in another's. This refuge I
was denied her. Her unfeeling betrayer
appeared in his true colors,-refusing her
all reparation, and laughing at the wreck
which he had made.t
There is that in woman, which, when
she is but partially abandoned, will rise in
her bosom the daring and tempestuous feel- ,
ings of a heroine. Show one ray of hope, c
to point a way in which, to the world's eye
at least, her good name may be regained, s
and you open to her spirit a light as if S
from heaven. It may point to crime,-it v
may add to her guilt,-but it will conceal o
;he same. She grasps the hope, and be-
gins the enterprise. r
One strong resolve now reigned para- t
mount in the heart of Mregn Harold. She ti
had been wronged,-deceived; she knew
she was beautiful; and so overwhelming
bad been her disappointment at the degra-
lation and coldness, whichshe had receiv- "
ed from Ellison, that her love was quench-
ed, and its charm was gone. She looked si
)ack upon the purity and blessedness of si
teart from which she had been divorced, I
.nd she mused deeply on the atrocity of a:
he arts whereby she had been beguiled, w
nd by which, !if discovered, she would mr
oon be despoiled of her good name,-be- re
ome a sacrifice to scorn and infamy, and a
mark for the altered eye of unkindness,
r the rebuking finger of suspicion. The te
thought stung her almost to madness. Live m
abandoned, she would not. She dressed
ith all her former neatness, and on every of
abbath attended a church in the country, w
ot far from town. Here she won the at- br
rntion of a youth, who loved and address- di
d her. He was a handsome, honest per- la
n11, and his attachment was sincere. His la
pen bearing, and excellent disposition, ri,
contrasting so closely as they did with the
cts of Ellison, won her esteem, and final-
r her firm and sober affection. She re-
>lved to be his own,-but to be utterly
known to him as the victim of another. sh
almost frenzied with the desire to be his, do
ie met him cautiously, but often,-walk- Sp
A with him, and held sweet counsel on he
eir approaching nuptials. The suscepti- ce
e youth knew not her home, nor her
ime,-save that he called her Mary. He loc
seemed her a highly accomplished and r'e- br
ectable lady, who, obeying the impulses
her feelings, was about to marry the be- en
g she loved, at the expense of losing her be
ition in society. This rendered her doub- wlh
dear to him. He was possessed of a lin
efficient competence, being an industri- dis
s, thriving young agriculturist; and all pco
r wants, he rejoiced to believe, even to mc
e' luxurious comforts, he had it in his as
wer to supply. He acceded to her re- ces
est, and refrained from all inquiries res- yot
acting her condition or name. She knew me
was deluded,-but the delusion was fix- int(
and the object at which she aimed was tha
) dear to her heart to .be lost sight of by seal
her affection, until he saw that he was be-
ginning to lose it. His selfish spirit then
deemed it invaluable. He had recourse
again to the spurious tenderness by which
his first triumph over her innocence was
accomplished. In-vain. She did not con-
ceal that her feelings had changed. His
pride was wounded, and he strove by pres-
ents to win her back to cordiality. She
resolved to appear won, but het heart was
turned, and it was but a slilght repayment
of the deception by which she had been
undone. Her design was laudable; she
desired to be an. honest wife, and sin no
more. Faithful to this end, she hoarded
the stinted monies that lie gave her, for her
The sudden return ofher kindness, and
the seeming excess to which she carried it,
awakened the jealousy of her betrayer. He
resolved to devote a day to the inspection
of her movements. He did so. Secreting
himself in a clump of dwarf willows, near
where they lived, he saw her walk into the
fields, and direct her step towards the dis-
tant dwelling of the agriculturist. He fol- i
lowed stealthily, in the shadow of the hedg- 1
es,-saw them meet,-observed her to give i
money into his hands, and him to kiss her
own! Maddened at the sight, he returned a
homeward, and awaited her arrival with a
moody brow and bitter heart. (
It was just after sunset, when Marion re- t
turned. The great luminary of day had h
left a sanguinary radiance upon a pile of o
western clouds, as the despondent girl took r
her seat by the casement, and looked out h
upon the landscape, seemingly lost in
Come my dear," said Maurice, with a r
malignant smile, and a trembling tone,- d
' play us an air on your guitar. Come,-

She took up her instrument, and with a a
sweet voice, 'discoursed excellent music.' n
She repeated some airs that had been fa- fi
vorites of Ellison's in the commencement s
f their acquaintance. f(
"Not those-not those," muttered Mau- o
ice,-' they are too soft.' Give me some- v
thing stern and solemn. Play that old bal- t

She sank it with touching pathos and
simplicity. As she concluded the 'last

Twilight was now drawing in. The hum nD
f the city was dying away,-the landscape ey
'as fading into indistinctness, and 'a I
'owner horror' seemed descending on the a
distant woods. A feeling of melancholy to
nguor stole over the fair musician, as she ga
id aside her instrument, and asked Mau- ri(
ce if he was prepared for supper. ha
"No,-I wish none," he replied sternly. an
"Are you unwell ?" she inquired. B
" Yes,-1 am. Marion go light a candle." thn
She retired to do his bidding. When va
e returned, he was seated by the win- sh"
iw, where she had been playing. A huge wi
)anish knife lay on the casement, which
snatched up as she entered, and con- fo
aled in his bosom. o
"Maurice!" she said, with a foreboding oc

upon one knee, and bending back the
graceful dbead and neck of his beautiful
victim, placed the knife across he throat.
Her rich golden hair had fallen loose in
her struggle, and, as it lay upon her neck,
prevented the intended wound. He de-
iberately dropped his knife, and while his
left hand was pressed against her forehead,
removed with his right the obstructing
tresses: then grasped his deadly blade,
and with one wide gash, severed tme veins
of life. The heart's blood of the damsel
bubbled and streamed upward into his face
and bosom: while her pallid lips seemed
pleading in voiceless movements for the
boon of being.
"It springs up to meet me, this fountain
of blood," said the maddened Maurice; it
would mingle with mine,-and I bow. to
its will. In an instant, he had severed the'
arteries of his own neck, and the blood of
the murderer and his victim was flowing
together! It was a sight of horror!
The text morning looked upon a mel-
ancholy scene. The dead forms were ly-
ing together, weltering in gore. The blood
had flowed over the threshold, and stood
in clotted pools among the paving stones.
A coroner's inquest was convened, and an
attempt to obtain a verdict made. A paper
was found in the pocket of Maurice, dis-
closing the name of his victim, alluding to
he estrangement of her affections, a boon
ie had won without merit, and kept with-
)ut reward,-and declaring that jealousy,
remorse, and weariness of life had driven
him to the deed. 1 r
Thus fell the Betrayer of Innocence-
hus fell the Betrayer. I saw the widowed
another bend in helpless agony over the
lead body of her child. I saw her wither-
ed lips pressed wildly and fondly upon
hose pallid features, lovely in dissolution,
nd lovelier in that repose which knows
o10 waking. I saw the age-dimmed eyes
killing with tears; I heard the moans and
ighs of her who never could know com-
ort more. When the priest would have
offered consolation, she turned upon him
vith a look of despair, and besought him
o be still. "A !' sh, groaned aloud,
alas! she died in sin,-she went down to
eath with the leprosy on her soul!"
The lover, too, was there. Overcome
y his feelings, he had sunk into a swoon.*
t was a scene of sorrow and tears.-
Oh thou who languishest in passion,

rhat thou doest! Thou destroyest a soul!
lou repayest a fond love with a fiend-like
gratitude; thou kindlest a fire in thy bo-
om, which years cannot quench, nor re-

Lmester with virtue, and traffic with its
chess! When the evening of age is at

THE BALTIMORE MYSTERY.-We have t]
for a few days past been led by some mys- tc

to expect a disclosure of circumstances of li

BALTIMORE, July 23, 1835.
Would you like a piece of gossip this ii
sultry weather? Our city just at this time ri
is full of it. There is a man residing in
Baltimore by the name of Captain .n
He is perhaps thirty odd years of age-has b
a family-is tolerably well looking-is said v
to be fascinating in his manners-can spout t]
French and Italian very fluently-has for t
some years past run a great rig in Balti- a
more, in the way of keeping a young la- a
dies' riding school, running omnibusses, t
until he ran them out of sight and himself J
out of funds-getting into private broils, n
quarrels, fighting, having duels, getting p
kicked out of lyceums, and so forth. He b
has been almost the terror of the town.- s
Every body, almost, despised him; and yet i
every body, almost, has been afraid of him.
He has had a. whipping at last, however, a l
severe one, almost as severe as it was just. s
Capt. formerly boarded with a
Mrs. who has for a long time kept p
a respectable school for young misses.- b
One of the young ladies attending this r
.school is a Ml iss W- from Washing-
ton. Yesterday her guardian, Mr. Baylies,
of Washington, being in this city, called at c
the house of Mrs. S. who has been for some c
time confined to her house with indisposi- j
tion, to see his ward. He was told that
she was not then in but should be sent for.
' A person was sent; Baylies also took his
; hat and went out. He overtook the girl
; who was 'going after Miss W and
asked her where she was. The girl at first
refused to tell him. This created suspicion,
and he soon prevailed upon her to show f
him to the house, which was none other
than Capt. '-- 's, who, although his

THE SLAVERY QUESTION.-The papers of
ie day are filled with excited accounts of
efforts making by individuals, to produce
difficulty in the slave holding states, and
rith attempts to effect an insurrection of the
laves in the South and West. The question
f Slavery, considered in the abstract, is very
different from the real question, which is
what is the best course to be taken to bring
bout universal freedom in the United States."
Vre do not doubt that many of those who are
leading on this enthusiastic scheme of imme-
iate reform, are strong in the faith, that they
re doing God service." Their zeal outstrips
;heir knowledge and discretion. What do
ome of the most distinguished champions of
lhe party know about the condition of slaves
s a whole ? To be sure, there a.re hard mas-
ers at the South, as, well as the North, and
lere are also kind masters. The tyranny of
-ie slave holder is not generally greater than
hat of the overgrown merchant, who dictates
o his clerks what they shall believe on reli-
ious doctrines, where they shall attend pub-
ic worship, what amusements they shall en-
oy out of business hours, and how they shall
peak and act when their master, enters his
counting room. They do not consider a.
lack coachman who trembles as he drops
he steps of the carriage, a slave, only a ser-
vant. He is not asked to join in the morn-
ng and evening devotions of the family-his
religion is confined to thestable, and his food
no better than that of the Southern slave who.
belongs to an intelligent master. T lger-
vile subjugation of many a house serW 'in.
he families of purse-proud anti-slavery, en-
husiasts, is a disgrace to their employers,
and more than off-sets against the reasonable
asks of slaves. We say not these things in
justification of those who hold slaves, for they
need no justification. They hold their pro-
lerty, of whatever kind it may be, under the
)road shield of the Constitution of the United
States. An attempt to excite slaves is noth-
ng less than TREASON and REBELLION. The
aws, the great principles which have been
sanctioned by the mutual pledges of all:the
States of the Union, through the majority of
public representatives, should not be shaken
by appeals to the passions, or disputed at the
risk of the Union itself. It is true that recent
occurrences have been quoted, in proof of the
opinion, that slavery is an evil." But who-
occasioned these unfortunate sacrifices ? Let
those who ought to know best, answer the
The good and faithful negro on a planta-
tion at the South, is no more a manual slave-
than the hired white man, who labors from
sunrise to its sitting, on a farm at the North.
The former has his task ;-and when that is
finished, his time is his own. But the hired.
man works all the day for ten or twelve dol-
lars per month, and must do what his em-
ployer orders to be done.
The negro has an immortal soul, and so
has the laboring white man; and we are as-
sured, by divine revelation, that ignorance
will not be a crime at the bar of God.
DEDICATION.-The New Presbyterian
Church" at Mandarin, fifteen miles from this
place, was dedicated to the worship of God,.
on Saturday, 22d inst. We believe this is
the only church on this river; and the friends
of good order and good morals may well re-
joice in the successful efforts of a few to ad-
vance the spiritual interests of
We have received a letter from a venera-
ble clergyman requesting a notice of the then
intended ceremonies to be published in our
last paper, but it did not come to hand until
after the day of dedication.

one waited for his neighbor.
This is the first instance of Florida apples
being sold in this place. The trees, do not
thrive, particularly near the sea coast. Those
from which these apples were plucked, were
raised from the seed planted seven year
since, and have never been engrafted.
ATTEMPT TO MURDER.-We learn that Ho]
Thomas Douglass, United States District A
torney for East Florida, was shot at, while i
his bed, about 1 o'clock on Sunday morning
23d inst. The shot passed through the wii
dow, and the netting about the bed, with
about six inches of his head, and lodged i
the wall. This is the second attempt to tak

"Beware of jealousy,
It is the green eyed monster that doth make
The meat it feeds upon'"
A CUTTING SCENE.-A very severe,-
sharp and cutting looking character, by the
significant cognomen of Solomon Swords,
was brought up for what the watchman
termed one of the "most outrageousest
assaults and batteries he ever did see!"
And although Swords was but a little fel-
low, and did not look like one that would
"do murder cheap" yet said the watchman,
he was the awfullest ugliest fellow I ever
did handle: for he fit and bit, and tore and
swore in a way that was a caution, I tell
ye!" It seems that some six months ago
Swords fell desperately in love with a pret-
ty young tailoress, who had just before
discarded her first, second, or third lover,
we don't undertake to say which; matters
moved on swimmingly for some time after
this; she assiduously encouraged his assi-
duities, and he, on his part, was no ways
slow in doing the agreeable" to his then
dearly beloved; he watched her every
"Responded every sigh,
And wept when she did cry."
He was her partner at every ball, and in
every dance; her cicerone to the theatres,
the gardens, the museums; her pilot and
protector on water and on land excursions ;
and it seemed to be the desire of his soul
that the winds of heaven 'should not visit
her face too roughly.' As for her, she
seemed to swim with the stream of pleas-
ure, and bask in the sunshine and splendor
that Solomon spread before her, and to
love the gallant cause of her convivial
hours with an attachment which, if not the
most fervent in the world, at any rate pro-
missed to be as lasting as their lives.-But
alas! and alack! for the instability and in-
security of this world's happiness-
"How vain are all things here below,
How false, and yet how fair,
Each pleasure has its poison too,
And every sweet its snare."
And so poor Solomon Swords 'proved to
his sorrow. At the close of a day which
they had spent in most delighful dalliance,
and which promised to' close as brightly
for Solomon's hopes as it had began, his
fickle fair one, after a proper portion of
artificial regrets had been expended as pre-
paratory to her purposed astounding dis-
closure, opened upon ,Solomon, first a
masked battery of coldness and unfounded
complaints, then a broadside of red hot
-shot in the shape of rebukes at his bearing
under her fickle behavior, and lastly she
gave the coup, d'eil to his hopes and his
ambition by telling him to make himself
scarce-to avaunt and quit her sight-
never to let her see his ugly face again-
and above all, never to dare to pass "be-
twixt the wind and her nobility," or to pol- t
lute her ears by any more proffers of affec- i
tion, for that she had'suddenly taken a dis-
like to every soul of his sex, and had made c
up her mind to c
Calmly live and peaceful die
In antiquate virginity !" t
Solomon, who had not the wisdom, nor
the winning ways of his immortal name-
sake, and who did not know quite so much c
of womankind as that worthy of old, the
never-to-be-forgotten polygamist-our mo-
dern Solomon then, we say, began not only
to look, but to sing exceedingly small; and -
if he did not feel exactly like a "small po-
tatoe" himself, he began to think that there t
might be such a description of animal or t
vegetable somewhere above ground; he
was astounded, electrified; he pleaded pit- g
eously, he knelt, he entreated, he raved, he n
swore, but all to no purpose. At last, by d
an admirable ruse de guerre, he got his r
arms around'her neck, and imprinted the r
burning kisses of passion upon her lips; p
this operated like a powerful charm upor
her spell-bound bosom; it fell upon her
feelings like the "honey'd dews of Hymet- h
ta, or the "balmy breathing incense from
Hybla's fountain;" she relented, or at least
she appeared to do so, and told Solomon, s
with a sweet benignity of manner, that he
might call just once more. Hie did call i
again and again, and again and again were h
their vows of love renewed; until at last ti
One night he missed her in her accus- si
tomed seat." T
Hie called at her house, but she was like w
the contrary recruit "absent without leave;" 'e
he sallied out in' search of her, and melan-
cbolly to relate for the fair fame of woman-
kind, he met her with her former sweet- sr
heart. "Frailty, thy name is woman," c
said Solomon, and he savagely separated
the swain and his sweetheart; and well y
would it have been for Solomon's peace, of
but not for history, if matters had gone no
further. But "who can hold a fire in his v
hand, by thinking on the frosty Caucasus ?"
or who can meet their best beloved under
the wing of another, and not, like him, a
Vow to sheathe a dagoger in his heart, si
Whose curst ambition stole away his love ?" c
Not us--nor Solomon, as it would seem; I'
but he had ,no dagge---" nor could he tv
make a weapon of his name," or else doubt-
less he would have done so ;' nevertheless,
he did do something for the sake of injur- Pi
ed lihoor; he happened to have in his hand
a stout cowskin stick or whip, and by ap- fc
is bosom with sausages, when his atten-
on was drawn to the preacher, who was
xhorting his hearers "to give up their 1
ins- and particularly their bosom sins.
'he sausage man immediately 0ame for-
yard, "here, take your links, I don't want
em if you're going to make a fuss about it."
A countryman sowing his ground, two
mart fellows riding that way, one of them
called to him with an insolent air:
"Well, honest fellow," said he, "'tis
our business to sow, but we reap the fruits
f your labor."
To which the*countryman replied, "'Tis
ery like you may, for I am sowing hemp."
"Dick, what are you about there ?" said
gentleman to his servant whom he saw
)itering about the barn. "Catching rats,
irt!" "And how many rats have you t
aught ?" "Why, sir, when I get the one
'm after now and another one it will make c
Break down the tyrant, and raise the op- i
ressed to liberty and equality.
Application in youth makes old age com-
plying it stoutly to his rival's head an
shoulders, he pouredd the red libation forth
pretty freely upon the altar of revenge.-
The fair one fainted-her first love fled
and Solomon was savagely seized by th
stalwart watchman, and lodged "in du
rance vile." He gave bail to answer, an
went on his way sorrowing.
HUMILIATING PICTURE.-Man may b
justly entitled the great destroyer and ex
aminator of life, without regard to time
place or circumstances. By his powe
the strongest are overcome, by his ingenu
ity, the most subtile are circumvented, an(
their energies of body and mind made sub
servient to his necessities or pleasures. H(
is superior to the whole animal creation ii
the noblest attributes; but enjoys one pre
eminence, for which even the lowest hav
no cause to envy him. All the destructive(
animals fulfil their dire offices upon crea-
tures belonging to their kind; when the
lion leaps from the ambush, it is into the
neck of the wild ox or the antelope that he
buries his claws; when the wolves howl
in unison, it is the deer they are pursuing:
when the scream of the engle sounds shrill-
est, then let the wild duck beware! Even
the insatiably ferocious tiger keeps aloof
from his brethren of the blood. But when
the drums roll, and the trumpets clang-
when the banner folds are shaken abroad
upon the air, and the neigh of the charger
re-echoes the deep notes of the bugle ; then
is man with his boasted reason, prepared
to spill the blood of his brother,-to drive
his desolating chariot over the faces of his
kindred-spread havoc and despair before
his path, and leave famine and pestilence
to track his footsteps.
A GOOD CHARACTER.-A good charac-
ter is to a young man what a firm founda-
fion is to the artist, who proposes to erect
a building on it; he can build with safety,
and all who behold it will have confidence
in its solidity, a helping hand will never be
wanted-but let a single part of this be
defective, and you go on a hazard, amid
doubting and distrust, and ten to one it will
tumble down at last, and mingle all that
was built on it in ruin. Without a good
character, poverty iq a curse-with it, it is
scarcely an evil. Happiness cannot exist
where a good character is not. All that is
bright in the hope of youth, all that is calm
and blissful in the sober scenes of life, all
that is soothing in the vale of years, cen-
tres in, and is derived from a good charac-
ter. Therefore acquire this as the first
and most valuable.good.
To SCHOOL TEACHERS.-Never deceive
your scholars, nor suffer them to practice
Never promise what you do not intend
strictly and literally to perform.
Never threaten what yon do not mean
or what it would be improper to execute.
Never tell,your scholars you will cut off
their ears, or do any thing else you do not
intend to do.
Never shut up a child in a dark closet,
or say any thing that will make them afraid
Never allude to mysterious evils, or
threaten punishments from causes that
children cannot comprehend.
Never speak to them about the Old Man,
)r the Old Woman or the Old Harry.
EDUCATION is a companion which no
m'nisfortune can depress-no clime destroy
-no enemy alienate-no despotism en-
slave. At home a friend-abroad an in-
roduction-in solitude a solace-in socie-
y an ornament.
It shortens vice-it guides virtue-it
,ives at once, grace and government to ge-
ius. Without it, what is man ? A spen-
lid slave! a reasoning savage! vasciliating
betweenn the dignity of an intelligence de-
ived from God, and the degredation of
passions participated with brutes.
A GOOD ONE.-At an evening meeting
eld at a private house, one of the light-
ingered gentry happened to be present,
Vhose attention was arrested more by a
trying of sausages hanging up in the room
ban by the words of the preacher. Dur-
ng the discourse, he had unnoticed filled

TO THE PUBLIC.
T9HE SUBSCRIBER, having purchased
L- The Southern Jgriculturawistfrom its late
Editor and proprietor, Mr. John D. Legare,
solicits the support of the friends of Agricul-
ture, and of the interests connected with it
throughout the Southern States. He has
published this work for ir. Legare frm its
commencement, in the year `28, and he is
thus practically acquainted with the mode if
which it should be conducted. Its public.
tion will be continued on the same terms and
in the same manner as heretofore with such
improvements as his experience may suggest.
As the subscriber is solicitous to make this
Journal the vehicle for dissemminating useful
information, not only with regard to estab-
lished systems of husbandry, but also experi-
mental efforts in Agriculture and Horticul-
ture, he invites free and unrestricted commu-
nication.from all persons occupied in these
pursuits. Let no one imagine that solitary
facts or isolated experiments are too trivial to
be communicated. All systematic knowl-
edge is but the aggregate of humble particu-
lars; and Science, in every department, is
brought to perfection, not through the instru-
mentality of a single exrraqrdinary mind, but
by the contribution of particulars by many
individuals, and generally after the lapse of
many years, he is desirous, therefore, to have
as many facts to record as can be furnished ;
and from the planter, who is systematic in
his experimental labors, an account of his
failures as well a his successful efforts, will
be acceptable. If the last are worthy of being
recorded that they may be imitated, the first
should be noted in order to be shunned.
The subscriber hopes that this appeal to his
Fellow citizens of the South, will not be in
vain. It would be a reproach to our Planters
to meet the fate of the Southern 'Review Of
the last it may be justly said, that it was suf-
fered to fall, when it was not only rearing for
us a well merited fame as a literary people,
but it was also vindicating the Southern hab-
its from the unjust aspersions which have
been so liberally bestowed upon us out of our
section of country. The Southern Agri-
culturalist" in some measure supplies the
place of the Southern Review, so far as re-
gards the circumstances last alluded to .-It
serves as a Register not only of method f
Iusbandry, but also of facts relating to our
system of Slavery. The subjects of the deci-
pline, the treatment, the characters of our
Slaves, are fairly suited to its priges, and
institute topics as interesting and important
as any which can engage either our own at-
ention or the attention of those abroad, who
eel a legitimate interest in our concerns.
The subscriber begs leave, in conclusion,
o remark, that if he had not undertaken to
continue the publication of this Periodical, it,
most probably, would have been either re'
moved from our city, or been suspended.
Whether it will be in his power to continue it,
will depend not only on the Pecuniary but
he Literary Contributions of Southern Plan-
ers. lHe confidently now leaves this matter
n their hands, feeling a full assurance that
here is wanting on the part of our Planters,
either the liberality nor mental energies ne-
esslry to sustain the Southern Agriculturist.
