THE SONGS OF OUR FATHERS.
BY MRS. HEMANS.
Sing them upon the sunny' hills,
When the days are long and bright,
And the blue gleam of shining rills
Is loveliest to the sight.'
Sing them along the misty moor,
Where ancient hunters roved,
And swell them through the torrent's roar,
The songs our fathers loved !
The songs their souls rejoice'd to hear,
When harps were in the hall,
And each proud note made lance and spear
Thrill on the banner'd wall:
The songs that through our valleys green,
Sent on from age to age,
Like his own river's voice, have been
The peasant's heritage.
The reaper sings them when the vale
Is fill'd with plumy sheaves;
The woodman, by the staffight pale
Cheer'd homeward through the leaves :
And unto them the glancing oars
A joyous measure keep,
Where the dark rocks that crest our.shores
Dash back the foaming deep..-
So let it be !-a light they shed
O'er each old fount and grove ;
A memory of the gentle dead,
A spell of lingering love ;
Murmuring the names of mighty men,
They bid our streams roll on,
And lifik high thoughts to every glen
Where valiant deeds were done.
Teach them your children round the hearth
When evening fires burn clear,
And in the fields of harvest-mirth,
And on the hills of deer !
SSo shall each unforgotten word,
When far those lov'd ones roam,
Call back the hearts that once it stirr'd
To childhood's holy home.
The green woods of their native land
Shall whisper in the strain,
The voices of their household band
Shall sweetly speak again ;
The heather heights in vision rise,
Where like the stag they rov'd-
Sing to your sons those melodies,
The songs your fathers lov'd.

Any body can talk common sense, bi
few can talk nonsense well. This may strike
the reader as a singular remark, but let u
examine it. imon sense matter is th
gift of every j with any intellect at al
of any man an idiot or not insane.-
Every body is ever talking common sens
tnd so it becomes familiar, just as ever
body can talk of religion and politics, wh
can talk ofnothing else. But skilful, grace
ful, elegant nonsense demands education
wit, wisdom. How few can trifle graceful,

nothing for a lorg time; but he nodded his

nd Van Nordon's printing office much in-
ired. Connor & Cook's establishment
vas somewhat injured on the roof. The
ame building belonged to Connor & Cook
nd was occupied by Mr. Beraud, as,4 se-
ar store, a French shoemaker, and fami-
es. .
The foregoing is a hasty and very m-
erfect account of the ravages of this awful
re; but it is as nearly, correct as the con-
bsion and consternation which it occasion-
d would permit. It is estimated that pro-
erty to the amount of not less than two
millions of dollars has fallen a victim to
he flames, and it is currently asserted, that
eside Mr. Blanchard, four other lives have
een lost among the wrecks of buildings
nd property. These unfortunate persons
re said to have been printers, among whom
rere David Carlile and D. D. Wyatt. The
hitter was carrying the former, an aged
ian, on his back "through the scuttle of
lo. 115 Fulton street, in which they, to-
ether with several others lodged, when he
ost his balance, and both rolled off togeth-
r into the burning mass. Besides these,
n unknown colored man was buried un-
er one of the fallen walls. Mr. E. B.
raylor, a fireman of No. 40, was severely
turned, as was also a member of No. 28,
iame believed to be Gaston. It is also stat-
d that Mr.C. Baldwin, and a Mr. Scott,
were consumed in the same building at
vhich the other deaths occurred.
Nearly, if not quite one thousand per-
ons have been thrown out of employment,
of whom probably a third are females, and
wo hundred at least are printers.

HEAT LIGHTNING.--A writer in the Bos-
on Centinel, thus speaks of the vulgar no-
ions of Heat Lightninig-
From my earliest recollection, I have oc-
casionally heard heat lightning spoken of.
Often, at the close of a hot day in summer,
on resorting to the Mall for fresh air, I
have seen the west and south horizon al-
most continually. illuminated with light-
ning, not the fierce blue forked streams,
but mild pale flashes, while no clouds, or
perhaps very small ones, only were visible
in any direction. On meeting a friend, if
our conversation was turned on the sub-
ject, I was informed it was heat lightning.
Having always resided in the vicinity of
the Common, where this appearance is so
frequently seen in the south-west and west
horizon on the evenings of our hot days
in summer, and having consequently heard
it so repeatedly spoken of as heat lightning,
I had for many years, indeed all the early
part of my life, as firm a faith in the doc-
trine of the existence of heat lightning as
distinct from the lightning attending thun-
der storms, as I had in the existence of the
latter. How many hundred times have I
heard it said, '0 that's only heatlightning,
that never does any harm.'
As soon as I came to reason on the sub-
ject, I doubted the correctness of the opin-
ion respecting the existence of any such
lightning as is here spoken of. Reflection
and a natural or acquired proneness to
scrutinize opinions generally, induced me
to give this subject a little attention, and
the result was, that there was no such
thing as heat lightning in the circumstan-
ces alluded to. I was convinced the ap-
pearance is caused by lightning proceeding
from clouds below the horizon, in places
where at the time a thunder storm is expe-
rienced. In this way the appearance it-
self, together with its attending and succee-
ding phenomena, are naturally and very
simply accounted for._ The heat .f the
preceding ?ay causes thunder clofirds as
usual; those clouds sometimes pass around
just below our horizon, carrying to the pla-
ces over wnich they pass a storm or thun-
der gust; during the continuance of which,
we see the reflection of the lightning altho'
we see no cloud, or the skirts of one mere-
ly, and hear no thunder: the clouds give






FOREIGN NEWS.
NEW YORE, August 18.
The fast sailing ship Josephine arrived
yesterday from Cork, whence she took-her
departure on the 18th ult. Her command-
er, Capt. Britton, has had the goodness to
furnish us with Cork papers of that day, a
Liverpool paper of the 14th, and a London
Shipping List of the 15th.
We ask attention to the extract we give
below fi-om the London Morning Chroni-
cle. That paper may be considered the
official organ of the present Ministers ; who
therefore probably entertain that opinion of
the conduct of the King and his Court to-
wards them, which the Chronicle expres-
ses. It is indicative of a change in the
Government. We have indeed never be-
lieved that the present Ministers would re-
tail their seats longer than was necessary
to pass the Irish Church Bill and one or
two other measures which the conserva-
tive party could not consistently with their
avowed opinions, sanction.
The King has sent a message to the
-House of Commons, signifying that as head
of the Chtowh, by the civil constitution of
t1land, he would offer no objection to
.theunrestrained investigation of a subject,
the Irish Church-which was now before
the Parliament and under legislative de-
liberation.
FRANCE.-The Conspiracy.-The parties
in custody charged with a conspiracy to
assassinate the King; amount already to
-the number of twenty. The prime mover-
of this plot is a man of the name of Berge-
ron, who has already been tried and ac-
quitted of a ,similar offence, having been
charged, as you may remember, with firing
a pistol at the King, at the corner of the
Pont Royal, when his-Majesty was pro-
ceeding from the Tuileries to the Chamber
,of Deputies to open the session of the Le-
gislature.
His acquittal having secured his impu-
nity, this man has since been heard to boast
that his was really the hand that fired the
famous pistol shot; but although he is now
in custody, it seems to be doubtful wheth-
er this new conspiracy can be brought
home either to him or his supposed ac-
complices. Apart from their ulterior de-
signs, which certimiiily could not be inno-
cent, the facts which cani be proved against
them amount to little more than their hav-
' ing taken a house on the road to Neuilly,
and having made it a sort of magazine of
arms and ammunition. It is supposed that
the principal part of their plan consisted in
the construction of a second edition of the
celebrated infernal machine, which was to
have been directed against the King's car-
*riage on his Majesty's return fiom his su-
burban villa to the Tuileries. The' pre-
liminary proceedings are still in progress,
and as soon as they are brought to a close,
some official announcement will be made
of the course which it is intended to pur'
sue.-[Times.

SPANISH.CONSULATE.-His Excellency,
the Captain General of the Island of Cuba,
with the view of prohibiting the introduc-
tion into the Island, of offenders against
the laws, or other persons of bad charac-
ter, has lately passed a law, requiring all
persons coming from foreign ports intoany
part of the Island, to be provided with a
passport from the Spanish Consul, at the
place of embarkation. ,
As this law will be rigorously enforced
in all cases, notice is thus publicly given,
that no one may allege ignorance, and
complain of the inevitable detention con-
sequent on a non-compliance with the a-
bove law.
All Captains of vessels are also hereby
required to provide themselves with clean
bills of health from the Spanish Consul at
the ports of their clearance.

ELEGANT EXTRACT.- The following
'passage is extracted from the eloquent
speech of Mr. Livingstons in reply to the
toast drank in compliment to him at the
public dinner given to him at Philadel-
phia:
"The occasion which brought you to-
gether adds one more to the many preced-


ing refutations of the charge of ingratitude
against Republics: for the people have on
this occasion most generously repaid mod-
erate services, ordinary talents, and -hum-
ble etTobrs, uy me nMgfiest ol ail rewards-
their approbation and applause.
"No Republics are not ungrateful!-
'The charge is made by the sordid and vain,
who think nothing valuable but gold, noth-
ing honorable but titles, and that gaudy
ribbons are the proper recompense for
'merit. No, gentlemen, Republics are not
ungrateful, but they are judicious in the
choice bf reward. They do not give he-
reditary.honors to virtue and wisdom,
which may descend to folly and vice.-
They do not wring, its earnings from the
hard hand of labor, that it may be poured,
out in pensions on the idle and unworthy.
They do not decorate with stars and spang-
led garters-with ribbons and crosses and
gewgaws, men who if they have done any
thing that may seem to have deserved
these childish toys, may afterwards prove
unworthy of the decoration. But they
give a nobler, a higher recompense for ser-
vices-they give their confidence. The
,seal of their approbation is a prouder dis-

a fbot nearer the ground than is usual,
whereby the most valuable part of the tim-
ber is saved, besides all the after labor of
squaring the end. The cost of the machine
is about fifty dollars, and it is believed that
with it two men can fell as much timber in
a given time as twenty can with the axe."

PARDON OF DE SOTO, THE PIRATE.-
The reprieve of sixty days, granted to this
individual, expired on Tuesday; at 10
o'clock on the morning of that day, the
Marshal, the Spanish Consul and some
other individuals entered his prison, and
read to him an absolute pardon by the Pres-
ident; Madame De Soto was present and
much affected. The reprieve.of Ruiz, who
continues apparently insane, will expire on
the 11th of September.

hard with honest labor-by their counte-
nances beaming with the fire of patriotism,
infinitely more honored, than I could be

a monarch could bestow."

A THRILLING DEVELOPEMENT.-We yes-
terday gave an extract from a Mobile pa-
per, in relation to the death of Mrs. Alston.
lrhe Mobile Commercial Advertiser, re-
ceived last evening, contains a still more
interesting statement upon the subject, from
the pen of the physician who attended the
supposed pirate and murderer during the
last moments of his earthly existence. We
annex the most important part of it:-
The pirate who died, and the facts of
whose case came into my possession, was
by the name of Foster. lie was without
family, and kept a grog shop. He was
taciturn and silent in his disposition. He,
for sometime before his death, grew gradu-
ally more intemperate. He often spoke of
being a sailor, of having been much at sea,
or, as the phrase goes, of having seen
much service." He fell sick, and was con-
fined for some time. His brain appeared
disordered, and his mind at times haunted
by strange impressions. He, on his death
bed confessed to a very worthy and respec-
table gentleman who stood by him, that he
had been a pirate, and belonged to a pirat-
ical crew who took the vessel in which
Mrs. Alston had embarked. That after
the crew and passengers of the captured
vessel were all despatched, she alone re-
mained to be disposed of. Each man ex-
pressed an unwillingness to become her ex-
ecutioner. They finally drew lots, to see
whose duty it should be to destroy her;
that it unfortunately fell upon him. Upon
learning her fate, she begged strongly and
pathetically for her life ; she entreated them
to spare her. She told them she was Mrs.
Alston, the daughter of Aaron Burr, who
had been Vice President of the United
States, and that he was awaiting her in N.
York, where she was going on to join him,
and to console him in his adversity-that
he made her walk the plank, which, find-
ing she could not avert, she finally did,
with great firmness and composure !! He
was an illiterate man, and had probably ne-
ver read any thing on the subject.
For some days previous to his death, he
imagined he saw her in his room, and
would convulsively point to different parts
of the chamber, exclaiming with much ear-
nestness-" There, there she is!" and would
ask the bystanders if they did not see her.
This delusion tormented him as long as he,
could make himself understood, when he
died a most miserable death !
' In corroboration of this statement the
testimony of several gentlemen could be
mentioned, whose standing and character
are of the first order in the community,
and whose veracity, where known never
will be questioned, and ,who know the
above statement to be substantially true ;
but I have no authority for calling them
by name. If Col. Burr should yet doubt
on the subject, evidence could be adduced,
to establish it in any court ofjustice, which,
being a lawyer, he would be obliged to ad-'
mit.
I do not consider it necessary to be more
minute on the subject, unl-ss I should be
formally called on by some one, who has
authority, or claims for more particular in-
formation. Because, as before observed,
nothing of the kind can do any good ; fir-
ther development and discussion can only
tend to revive melancholy feelings and un-
.pleasant regrets, which time had measura-
bly buried in oblivion.

A USEFUL INVENTION.-Mr James Ham-
ilton has invented a machine for felling
trees, which is spoken of as follows:
"This machine requires very little more
space-for use than is required for the swing
of an axe, and may be used in almost any
situation in which a man can use an axe.
It may be moved from tree to tree by one
man, who can with it cut through a stern

PUBLIC MEETING.


The followingarticle from a Boston jour-
nal speaks the Pal sentiment of the most
respectable portion of the people of New-
England, in retard to the plans and move-
ments of the bolitionists:-[National In-
telligencer.
[From the loston Atlas of August 4.]
THE SLAVE QUESTION.-We have ex-
pressed butan ingle opinion on this agita-
ting topic, froa the time that it first be-
came lnecessay to discuss it in the public
journals. W have uniformly and decid-
edly c ondensed the violent movements,
and still mnor violent language of the im-
mediate Ablitionists. The evil, great as
it is, we sha' only aggravate by agitating.
The sufferigs of the slave-great as they
may be-vx shall only increase by our
rash interference.
Let Abotionists ask themselves, in what
manner ca; we interfere with the slaves at
the Soutbh,with any reasonable expectation
of betterih; their condition.? It must be
either witior without the consent of their
masters. If you propose to adopt your
measures with the consent of their masters,
go among hem and promulgate your doc-
trines. If l ey will consent to their adop-
tion, they will certainly consent to listen to
them. If'you mean to force your opinions
on them-to compel them to a manumis-
sion of their slaves-you at once light up
the flames of civil war. The whole ques-
tion resolves itself into this-and can be
considered only in this point of view.
If thisis then your intention, avow it.-
Proclaim that you are agitating in New-
England; and are preparing to agitate in
Europe, br the purpose of compelling a
r"elu;nse of ill slave property-avow this in-
tention---aid this must be your intention if
you mean any thing-and see how many
of your dluded followers would cling to
ynu. Weabhor slavery as heartily as we
hate any uing else that is oppressive, un-
just, anl )dious. But there is no more
reason for a movement in New-England,
to reduce he Southern States, and compel
them to. release their slaves, than there
would lmias been for our joining Poland in
he, strugg le against the Autocrat of the
Norath---o in exciting the serfs of Russia
to a rebellon against their legitimate Gov-
ernment.
As far a this question is concerned, the
slave Stats are, to all intent and purposes,
a Foreign Nation. We have no more right,
and no rmre power to \meddle with the
slaves of E>uth Carolina, than we have to
meddle wth those of the West India Is-
lands. .Ard if we attempt it, it can only
be through battle arid bloodshed that we
shallsucceei in such a plan ofemancipation.
We reget to learn that there is to be
more Ameiican agitation on this subject in
England. the Abolition Society is send-
ing out agents to work for them there-
how, and to what end ? To raise funds
for the purchase of the slaves ? or to pay
itineratts for preaching up an excitement
in New-Englid and New York ?
It is of the teatest importance that pub-
lic meetings should be held throughout
New-England, to declare the sentiments
of the Peoplo at large with reference to the
movements .f the fanatics and abolitionists
-those whb profess themselves ready to
go through he double horrors of a servile
and civil wr for the remote chance ofsuc-
ceeding in compulsoryy emancipation.

THREATENED HOSTILITIES OF THE PAW-
NEES AND (AMANCHES.-We have receiv-
ed through the politeness of a friend, the
following liter dated;
FoRT GIBSON, July 7, 1835.
"Just a the mail is about to leave, an
express ha arrived from Major Mason, at
Cross Tim ers, where he has been station-
ed with t o companies of dragoons, for
the purpo of receiving the Pawnees and
Camanchej Indians, who were to assemble
to form a treaty, bringing the unpleasant
intelligence that the Pawnees and Caman-
ches, had Qllected, and were still collect-
ing in greatt numbers, and that they were
sending their wives and children back into
the woodsind mountains, and making pre-
parations t( attack the dragoons, and com-
mence a var of offence, and Maj. M. sent
for Gen. A'buckle, and six or eight compa-
nies of infantry.

mother of the negro had succeeded in forc-
ing him out of the back door, and locked
it. Finding, however, that but one person
had come to the assistance of the family,
he endeavored again to force an entrance
with his ate, and furiously continued his
efforts, notwithstanding the party had been
strengthened by the presence of a gentle-
man who resided with Dr. Hunt, and who
had also been raised by Mrs. T.'s cries for
help; and it was not until after the arrival
of two constables, and hearing their voices
as they entered the passage in front, that
he desisted and fled. Had they approach-
ed the house by the rear, the negro would
have been arrested; but as it was, he es-
caped, and has not yet been arrested.

The immediate abolitionists, says the N.
Y. Star, hold a large caucus this day-we
know where they meet. If their delibera-
tions shall result in an avowed determina-
tion to abandon their mischievous objects,
we shall chronicle the event with pleasure
-if they are determined to go on and keep
up this excitement, their deeds be on their
own heads.


At a public meeting of the citizens of
Jacksonville and its vicinity, convened at
the Court-house, to adopt measures to meet
the present crisis, J. B. LANCASTER was
called to the chair, when the following
preamble and resolutions were passed
unanimously.
Whereas, recent occurrences make it
proper for the people of the South, to ex-
press their sentiments in relation to the
extraordinary measures of various fanatical
and other societies in the Northern and
Eastern States; therefore, we the people
of Jacksonville, in public meeting assem-
bled, do publish and declare, that we re-
gard the proceedings of the Abolitionists
societies in the non-slaveholding States, as
incendiary and treasonable attacks on the
right of private property in the slave hold-
ing States and Territories, equally guaran-
teed to us by the Constitution of the 'Uni-
ted States, as the right of property of any
other description, is to these Abolitionists,
and more outrageous.and wanton than an
interference with their personal or proper-
tied rights, because the interference pro-
posed, not only jeopardizes our property,
but our lives and all most dear to us.
Be it resolved--That the next Legisla-
tive Council be requested to pass such laws
as may be necessary to avert the evils in-
tended by the Fanatics and Incendiaries,
who are endeavoring to deluge our country
with blood, and that severe penalties and
summary punishments be awarded against
all persons who may either take or attempt
to distribute any inflammatory or incendiary
paper-and that the laws against colored
persons be revised in such a manner as
the Legislative Council may deem proper
to meet the present crisis, and that severe
penalties be awarded against any person or
persons, who may attempt to teach any
colored person to read or write.
Resolved-That we consider as danger-
ous, all persons who may be subscribers to
or who shall take any Abolitionist paper or
pamphlets, or seditious or incendiary pub-
lications, and will view all such persons as
inimical to our institutions and meriting
summary punishment.
Resolved-That a committee of six be
appointed by this meeting, who shall act
as a committee of vigilance,,and have pow-
er to see that the patrols do their duty
strictly, and to call public meetings when-
ever in their opinion public safety shall re-
quire it.
Resolved-That all owners and over-
seers of slaves, be requested to keep their
slaves on their plantations, particularly
nights and Sundays, and allow them passes,
to go off only in the day time.
Resolved-That Isaiah D. Hart, John L.
Doggett, William J. Mills, 0. M. D9rman,
Elijah Williams, and Squire Streeter, be
the committee of vigilance.
Resolved-That the proceedings of this
meeting be published in the Jacksonville
Courier, signed by the Chairman and Sec-
retary.

OUTRAGE AT WASHINGTON.-The Na-
tional Intelligencer of Friday, publishes
the following account of an audacious out-
rage in that city, accompanied by a string
of unwarrantable & calumnious comments,
to which we cannot consent to give place
in our columns:
On Tuesday night last, an attempt was
made on the life of Mrs. Thornton, of this
city, (the much respected widow of the late
Dr. Thornton, Superintendent of the Pa-
tent Office,) by a young negro man, her
slave. About half past one o'clock, in the
dead of the night, Mrs. T.'s chamber, in
which slept herself, her aged mother, and
a woman servant, was entered by the ne-
gro, who had obtained access to it by for-
cing the outer door. He approached the
bed of Mrs. Thornton with an uplifted axe.
She was, fortunately, awakened by his step,
and still more fortunately, the negro wo-
man, the mother of the man, was also
awake. As he approached the bed of her
mistress, the latter sprung up, seized and
held him, while Mrs. T. escaped from the
room, rushed to the door of the next house,
the residence of Dr. Hunt, whom she rous-
ed with her cries. On reaching the entry
of Mrs. T.'s house,. Dr. H. found that the

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 3.
The recent developemehts in relation to the
insurrectionary movements of the Abolition-
ists have highly excited the feelings of most
of the population of the slave-holding states.
We believe that unless prompt measures are
taken to check the influence of emissaries,
the lives of citizens in the States and Terri-
tories holding slaves will be in danger, and
the Constitution shaken to its centre. The
prosperity of the whole country has been pur-
chased by persevering zeal and cemented
with precious blood.
By the misguided enthusiasm of a few, the
character of Northeners and northern institu-
tions is fast weakening the chain of mutual
good feeling, and common love of country.-
There are undoubtedly master spirits behind
the curtain. Treason and rebellion do not
find root in minds sterile and stupid. The
dumb beast can draw the cart but he cannot
direct the, course or business.
Our citizens may be assured that accom-_
plished lurkers are in our Territories as well
as States. Insurrection, although it may se-
cretly begin in the kitchen, winds itself by
degrees into the refinement of the drawing
room and parlor. It violates the closet of
study the sacredness of domestic confidence,
and pays its obligations in ruin and blood.-
The case of Aaron Burr in his attempt to de-
stroy the liberties of the States and his suc-
cessful effort to blast the happiness of fam-
ilies cannot be forgotten.
The serpant can charm the bird while he
meditates his destruction.

SEPTEMBER has come, and as yet, there
has been no prevailing sickness in this or
other towns on the St. Johns. Here it is not
considered unhealthy, but we are liable every
day to rains and storms. One needs an um-
brella to keep out of the sun in the morning,
,and the shower in the evening. The clouds
become highly charged with electric fluid,
and the heavens are fairly alive with light-
ning. We have known of but one instance
of striking near this place. But the shafts
frequently take in the pine wood, further
back from the river. It is not safe to be far.
out on this river in small boats in the after-
noon at this season. There are sudden squalls
which are discoverable approaching, but
which are dangerous, even if the helmsman
can manage a boat uncommonly well. At
one moment you may glide over a splendid
smooth sea, and at the next, may discover by
the ripple at a short distance, that trouble is
coming.
0I7 MURDER.-The mail carrier between
Tampa Bay and Camp King, was barbarously
murdered on the road about two weeks since,
by a party of the Seminole Indians.' He was
shot, and scalped his bowels taken out, and
thrown into a pond. The mule was cut in
pieces, and the saddle, bridle, and mail bag-
have not been found. The savages had a
war-dance over the scalp of their victim.
A messenger was despatched to General
Clynch at Camp King, and a detachment
proceeded to the scene of the massacre.
We hope our neighbor of the St. Augustine
Herald will not contradict this statement, as.
he has all our former ones in relation to the
Seminoles. This transaction does not look
like being removed "peaceably and quietly.'"
However, we should not be surprised if he
should dispute this, and assert that no such
thing has occurred.

The following notice was furnished us as
a curiosity. The names of the parties are in-
tentionally withheld. Cupid is a clever fel-
low, but he is like a great many others, apt
to "turn his yoke," or, in other words, "be

STRIKE AMONG THE PRINTERS.-Blow and
a strike, and a blow first.-We regret to an-
nounce, that the Printers in this city have
aped the mechanics in larger places, by de-
claring that they will not work over two
hours in a day, and if the Editor and the
Printer's devil had not been unusually ac-
tive, our paper would have appeared, as Col.
Crocket would say, like a racoon's tail, "up
side down."

ARREST.-We have heard that a foreigner
was arrested and committed to the jail in St.
Augustine during the last week, for attempt-
ing to excite insurrection among the blacks
In that place, and on examination disclosed
that several persons were engaged in the plot
in Florida, with the understanding that, there
was to be a general rise in all the Southern
States. He did not state the time, or the ar-
rangements but doubtless it is a part of the

_..Hoh. Horace Binney.of Philadelphia has
z- eniplied with the invitation of the City Au-
thorities, and is to deliv'r aan Eulogium on
the, character of the lamented Chief Justice
Marshall. The friends of the deceased can-
not ask a more flattering tribute to the mem-
ory of a friend, than the character of those
distinguished statesmen and eloquent orators
who have been selected as his eulogists.

Col. Washington, one of the Board of U.
S. Surveying Engineers, passed through this
town on Monday last, with his corps of work-
men, on his way to Tallahassee. He has
been employed for some time in laying out.
townships in the Territory.

QUICK PASSAGE.-The steamboat Emerald,
Capt. Swartwout, made her trip.on Sunday
from New York to Albany, in ten hours and
forty-five minutes, bringing 423 passengers.

We learn with regret, that JOHN GRAY, Jr.
Esq. Post Master at St. Augustine, died at
Charleston, S. C. on the 22d ult.

Extract of a letter from a young man in
Baltimore to his brother in this place, dated
BAL MORE, August 2.
"The mob assembled again last night to
the number of about 2000, to tear Mr.
Johnson's house down; but the Troop of
Horse and the Police guarded it so that
they could not get to it. However, they
made a rush, and the Troop fired on them,
killed seven and wounded thirteen. Two
of the killed were merely spectators like
myself; one of- them, a shoe-maker, fell
within three feet of me, with seven shot in
him, nearly all in the breast. You may be
sure I started after that. The mob then
went to the house of Mr. Glenn and broke
every tling in it, demolished the house,
strewed the surniture all over the streets,
cut the beds open, and in short, every thing
that was in the house war destroyed. To
night there is a large mob assembled while
I am writing, threatening the Mayor, and
I do not know what will be the conse-
quence.
"P. S. Monday morning discloses a
scene of destruction almost indescribable.
The mob demolished five houses last night
and burnt the furniture in the streets, inclu-
ding that of the Mayor. who has resigned
his office, and the city is completely at the
mercy of the mob. The Mayor was shot
last night in the leg, by a pistol ball. The
papers are afraid to publish any thing.-
There are about 15000 assembled on the
commons while I am writing. God knows
where it will end."

NEW YORK, August 18.
A DUEL NOT EXPECTED.-Paymaster
General Towson, has announced his arri-
val in this city, and his intended stay at the
National Hotel, until the departure of the
Frigate constitution. The columns of cor-
respondence are published in the Times
and American. between Commodore Elli-


ot, and Col. Towson, from which it appears
that the0 gentleman at least is deter-
mined t t, if he can get the Commo-
dore's courage up to that honorable point.
However couragious. it may be to settle
matters by single combat, and however fa-
tal encounters of this kind often terminate,
there appears to be a prevailing sentiment,
that the Commodore would depart with his
wooden head, without the least injury be-
ing done to either. Even Police officers
do not deem it necessary to bind over the
parties to preserve the peace of the city
from being disturbed.-[Daily Advertiser.

ROBBERY AT SARATOGA.-A gentleman
from Saratoga, informs us, says the United
States Gazette, that while a wealthy gen-
tleman from the south, was standing in
front of one of the Hotels, a stranger came
up, and laying his hand gently upon the
shoulder of the gentleman, asked a civil
question in reference to i' stage which was
preparing to start from the hotel, which
was civilly answered, and the stranger
thanked him and retired.-Shotily after,
the gentleman missed his pocketbook, con-
taining $600 in cash and papers of great
value.-[N. Y. Star.'


THE PORTUGUESE PiRATEs.-Fifty-three
of the persons who arrived at Norfolk on
the 27th May, in the schr Boa Nova, from
Brassos (Cape de Verds,) and who were
arrested on the 2d Jung, and imprisoned
to await their trial for piracy, left Norfolk
under charge of the Deputy Marshall for
the Richmond district, in the steam boat
Thomas Jefferson, for Richmond. The
Court will convene on the 15th Nov. at
which Judge Barbour will preside. Pro-
bably a called Court will convene earlier.

A project is on fbot in Charleston to es-
tablish a line of steam packets between
Charleston and Havana. The Courier
states that the Dolphin, Capt. Pennoyer, is
engaged, and will leaOv Charleston for Ha-
vanna via St. Augustine, Cape Florida and
Key West, on the 10th November next.

We learn, says the Farmington Courier,
that the Hon Joseph P. Fisk, of Wrenth-
am, Mass., has been appointed by the
President, Governor of the Arkansas Ter-
ritory.
Col. James C. Terrell, has, in conise-
quence of continued, ill health, resigned his
seat in Congress from Georgia.

MISCELLANEOUS.

[From the National Intelligencer.]
Those of our readers who entertain a
proper contempt for every thing mercena-
ry in the commerce between the sexes, will
keenly relish the following jea d'esprit,
prompted no doubt by the late scandalous
verdict, by a New York jury, in favor of a
man who sued a female for dainages for
breach of a marriage promise:
[From the New York Evening Star.]
NOTICE TO ALL WHOM IT MAY CONCERN.
The subscriber being about to enter into
matrimonial engagements with Miss Smith
of this city, considers it-an act of prudence
due to himself; to endeavor, previous to the
finale of that interesting event, to ascertain
the amount of liability he may thereby in-
cur, as Miss Smith, from her weighty sub-
stantial attractions, has for some years past
been considered "a desirable investment
for the time and attention of speculators."
He, therefore, earnestly requests all those
rejected yoiug gentlemen, who may have
legal claims against Miss Smith for loss of
time-crushed hopes-postage and sta-
tionary-blighted affections, and all other
reasonable items and charges, which may
have arisen in the course of an unsuccess-
ful wooing, to present them forthwith for
settlement-properly attested under oath
of affirmation, when he will apply as much
balsam to their wounded feelings as one or
two thousand dollars will furnish.
All communications to the address of
the subscriber through either the Post or
Star office, will be promptly attended to,
ard considered strictly confidential. But
if any of the aforesaid gentlemen specula-
tors wish for so very enviable a notoriety,
the subscriber is so anxious to make every
reparation in his power for their irrepara-
ble loss, that he will at his own expense
publish to the world their tale of wo."
WILLIAM WISEACRE,
No. 3, Bachelor's Terrace', Maiden Lane.

SCANDAL-a fragment.-- "There are peo-
ple," continued the corporal, who can't
even breathe without slandering a neigh-
bor."
"You judge too severely," replied my
aunt Prudy, "no 6oe is slandered who does
not deserve it."
That may be," retorted the corporal,
"but I have heard very slight things said
of you."
The face of my aunt kindled with anger.
"IMe !" she exclaimed, "me !-slight things
said of me !-what can any body say of
me"
*I- They say answered the corporal grave-
ly, and drawing his words to keep her in
suspense, "that-that-you are no better
than you ought to'be."
.Fury flashed from the eyes of my aunt
Who are the wretches ?"
"I hope they slander no on0 who does
not deserve it," remarked the corporal jeer-
ingly as she left the room.
The feelings of my aunt may well be
conceived. She was sensibly injured.-
True she had her foibles. She was peev
ish and fretful ; but she was rigidly mora
and virtuous. The purest ice was no
more chaste. The pope himself could no
boast more of piety. Conscious of the cor
rectness of her conduct she was wounded(
at the remark of the corporal. Why should(
her neighbors slander her ? She could no
conjecture.
Let my aunt be consoled. A person
who can live in this world without suffer
ing slander, must be too stupid or insig
nificant to claim attention.

CONSOLATION-While General Green
of Rhode Island, was independent of a
parties, he had a capital knack of soothin
the disappointment of beaten candidate
and on such occasions used to tell a favo
ite story, in a style of inimitable hurno
which reconciled every body to the loss
office. We can give nothing of its spir:
merely an outline. A field slave in th
South, to whom meat was a rare blessin
one day found in his trap a plump rabb
He took him out alive, held him under h

on his qualities. "0 how fat! berry fa

so berry fat he fry himself; golly ho

white-whiskered, red-eyed son of a gt

[Boston Free Press

TOLERABLY ToUGH.-A man was s-
:__~ ~ hin l nl-"'fr


ANECDOTE.-A young lady was very
much in love with a young Irish officer;
but that false delicacy which prevails a-
mong the female sex, would not permit
her to disclose her passion. However, her
attentions were unremitted, and she was
lavish in compliments when, opportunity
would permit. But the officer was a deli-
cate man and unexperienced in those mat-
ters: he was therefore unconscious of her
meaning: and it remained for the young
lady either to be more explicit, or continue
in all the torture of suspense. The former
being her choice, she availed herself of a
circumstance which happened. There
were fowles and a scarcity of plates, so the
young lady taking notice of,,and resolving
to seize the presenthappy moment, turned
about, and with an expressive look, said,
" Pray, sir, lay your bones with mine." The
officer took the hint, and an eclairecissement
took place that evening.

HARD LIVING."-We have it from good
authority that there lives an old bachelor
in the city of New York, who is very rich
and keeps a store, in which he employs
two clerks. These clerk's salary he pays
by allowing them extra privileges in the
store. Hie is so darn'd close that he sleeps
in the store upon the bare counter. His
meals consist of two pennies' worth of dried
apples for breakfast, eaten dry and without
drink ; for dinner he drinks a quart of wa-
ter to swell the apples, and for supper eats
and drinks nothing the year round.
This is but little better board than the
Dutchman got, when apprentice to the tai-
loring trade, who never had any breakfast
given him, for dinner he'd get a good flog-
ging, and for supper that which was left
over from dinner, warmed over again. He
would have almost starved, had it not been
for the cabbage.

A married couple in Maine, sued mutu-
ally, a short time since for divorce. One
of the grounds on which the husband
prayed for a separation was that his wife
smoked-that she smoked day and night,
and farther that she smoked before mar-
riage, but concealed the habit from him
until after their union. The wife on her
side, put in a cross plea that her husband
chewed tobacco, and not only chewed to-
bacco, but ate onions. Causes of dissatis-
-faction so strong, added to divers others
mutually alleged and proven, were deem-
ed sufficient by the court, and the disgust-
ed couple were allowed to separate and
enjoy apart their delicate propensities.

HoME.-Let no man ever think of hap-
- piness distinct from the happiness of his
home. The gayest must have their lan-
r guid, sick, and solitary hours. The busies
must relax their labor, and there must be
some retreat for them where they may seelk
refreshment from their cares, and collect
s the spirits that disappointments so frequent
- ly depress. They who live the most fo:
the public still live for the public but in
small part; and they are apt to find the
- public service a heavy burthen which
- greater encouragement than that of ambi
d tion must furnish the strength to support.

TO THE PUBLIC. *
HE SUBSCRIBER, having purchasd
_ The Southern Agriculturalist from its late
itor and proprietor, Mr. John D. Legare,
icits the support of the friends of Agricul-
e, and of the interests connected with it,
oughout the Southern States. He, has.
blished this work for Mr. Legare from its
mmencement, in the year 1828, and he is
us practically acquainted with the mode in
rich it should be conducted. Its publica-
n wl I be continued on the same terms and
theli me manner as heretofore with such
proe ime nts as his experience may suggest.
As the subscriber is solicitous to make this
urnal the vehicle for dissemminating useful
formation, not only with regard to estab-
bted systems of husbandry, but also experi-
ental efforts in Agriculture and Horticul-
re, he invites free and unrestricted commu-
cation from all persons occupied in these
rsuits. Let no one imagine that solitary
cts or isolated experiments are too trivial to
communicated. All systematic knowl- A

rs; and Science, in every department, is.
ought to perfection, not through the instru-
entality of a single extraordinary mind, but
the contribution of particulars by many
dividuals, and generally after the lapse of
any years, he is desirous, therefore, to have
many facts to record as can be furnished;,
d from the planter. .who is systematic in
s experimental labors, an account of his
lures as well a his successful efforts, will
acceptable. If the last are worthy of being
corded that they may be imitated, the first
would be noted in order to be shunned.
The subscriber hopes that this appeal to his
low citizens of the South, will not be in
ain. It would be a reproach to our Planters
meet the fate of the Southern Review. Of
e last it may be justly said, that it was suf-
red to fall, when it was not only rearing for
a well merited fame as a literary people,
it it was also vindicating the Southern hab-
s from the unjust aspersions which have
een so liberally bestowed upon us out of our
action of country. The "Southern Agri-
ilturalist" in some measure supplies the
ace of the Southern Review, so far as re-
ards the circumstances last alluded to. It
rves as a Register not only of methods of
usbandry, but also of facts relating to our
'stem of Slavery. The subjects of the deci-
ine, the treatment, the characters 'of our
laves, are fairly suited to its pages, and
institute topics as interesting and important
s any which can engage either our own at-
untion 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,
lost probably, would have been either re-..
loved, from our city, or been suspended.
Whether it will be in his power to continue it,
'ill depend not only on the Pecuniary but
he Literary Contributions of Southern Plan-
ers. He confidently now leaves this matter
i their hands, feeling a full assurance that
here is wanting on the part of our Planters,
either the liberality nor mental energies ne-,
essary to sustain the Southern Agriculturist.

be presented occasionally, plates from copper
