DEATH AND THE WARRIOR.
"< Ay, ivarrior, arm and wear thy plume
On a proud and fearless brow !
I am the lord of the lonely tomb,
And a mightier one than thou !
Bid thy soul's love farewell, young chief!
Bid her a long farewell!
Like the morning's dew shall pass that grief,
Thou comest with me to dwell!
* Thy bark may rush through the foaming
Thy steed p'er the breezy hill;
But they bear thee on to a place of sleep,
Narrow, and cold, and chill !"
" Was the voice 1 heard, thy voice, 0 Death ?
And is thy day so near ?
Then on the field shall my life's last, breath
Mingle with victory's cheer!
' Banners shall float with the trumpet's note,
Above me as I die !
And the palm tree wave o'er'my noble grave,
Under the Syrian sky.
"High hearts shall burn in the royal hall,
When the minstrel names that spot;
And the eyes I love shall weep my fall-
Death Death I fear thee not."
" Warrior thou bearest a haughty heart,
But I can bend its pride !
How should'st thou know that thy soul will
In the hour of victory's tide!
* It may be far from thy steel-clad bands,
,That I shall make thee mine ;
It may be lone on the desert sands,
Where men for fountains pine !
" It may be deep amidst heavy chains,
In some strong Paynim hold-
I have slow, dull steps and lingering pains,
Wherewith to tame the bold !"
* Death Death I go to a doom unblest
If this indeed must be !
But the cross is bound upon my breast,
And I may not shrink for thee !
*"Sound, clarion, sound !-for my vows are
To the cause of the holy shrine;
I bow my soul to the will of Heaven,
0 Death and not to thine !"
PRINTER.. ROVERBs.-Pay thou thy

WTy hI ere is Mrs. Joel
Gib~~ and her husband is
one ot gentlemen there, for he is a
mercy nt, and lives in a fine house, and
has made a glorious spec in the .s down
east. She paid utm visit this s r, and
liked us so well that she staid a fortnight;
and I don't know how much longer she
would have staid, if it hadn't been for a
north-east storm that come up and drove
her away. ,She is a sort of cousin, in a
round about way, of Marm Peabody's; be-
ing akin to the Smiths and Jordans, up
about Nmbagog. And they are cousins
enough to ccme three miles out of their
way, every tune they go to market to Port-
land, just to see how we do, and put, up
with us all night, bag and baggage. Well,
no matter how she came by it, Mrs. Gib-
bins is Mart's cousin, and so by that means
cousin to the whole family. And that ain't
all, she is one of your first chop ladies.-
There's no mistake about it, she is the top
of the pot in Portland; real superfine up-
per crua; and up to all manner of gentili-
ty. I tell ye what, we had to mind our p's
and q's when she first came here, or we
should have disgraced ourselves directly.
Hannal, my wife, was scartout of a year's
growth,, at the first sight of her, all dressed
out in her silks and satins, and shirt sleeves
as big as meal bags. It was somethingjust
about a hair finer than she ever see before.
And even I was put up to all I knew, to
get along through the ceremonies on the
grand occasion. But I am an old hand at
your compliments, and I give her some
samples that she didn't expect to see.-
Gpod lordy! just to see me at the table!
setting up so prim, and mincing and taking
small mouthfiuls. Hannah was ready to
split, and had to look other way to save
laughing right out. She declares I took
two bites at a bean.
But I minded well what I was about,
-and didn't make a single sip. -Gatch -

ness, and poking the victuals at her.! Han-
nali, says I, if she didn't get enough to eat,
it wasn't my fault. And whenever the la-
dy said, "Mr. Beedle, I'll trouble you for
this thing or that"-I always spoke right
up with, 6, marm, that trouble is a plea-
sure." Finally our cousin had to come out
and say, that she was surprised to find "so'
civilized a being, so far up in the country,"
and she couldn't invent how, nor where, I
had picked up so much politeness, as I had
never been to Portland. Well, my lady
had hardly been in the house two hours,
before she begun to ask me about the pros-
pects here in the country. "0," says I,
"pretty fair, considering. Iay will come
in short, owing to the drouth in the spring;
but the potatoes look well, and corn is go-
ing to turn out a grand crop."
"Mr. Beedle," says she, "I have heard
before, that you was a funny man. I am
going to look for myself." With that she
claps on Marm Peabody's old sun-bonnet,
and out she goes, dragging wife and me af-
ter her, through the fields. And away sl i
streaked it, through bush and brier, and
over fence and stone wall; 'twas neck or
nothing, but no whoa. And her tongue
was running all the time, as fast as her legs,.
every mite and grain. Sometimes I un-
derstood what she said, and sometimes I
did'nt. But when I did'nt understand, I
made as if 1 did, and she was none the wis-
er. "Mr. Beedle," says she, "don't you
admire the beauties of the country ?" "I
used to, marm," says I, "before I was mar-
ried ; but now, you know, that won't do at
all." O, you are a queer little man always
thinking oftne girls. I am speaking of the
beauties of nature. O ho-you mean the
beauties of nature. Sartain, I admire the
beauties of nature, and always did." By
and by we got to the to.f Bare-back hill,
and all at once she bega ,,play such antics
that I thought she was sIng by a bumble-
bee. "My stars," says she, "what a charm-
in prospect! beautiful, delightIfi, pictorick-
stick! Come here, good folks. This i
the spot to look from. Is'rit that enchant-
ing ?" At this Hannah she stretched her
neck and stared all around, without saying
a word, for she could make nothing out,
and she did'nt know how to hide her igno-
rance. But I blarted right out. "Ooooo!.

rag offthe bush. That bangs every thing.'
It's equal to cash." "I don't see nothing
John," says Hannah says she, "what is it ?"
" Why look," says I, ",can't you see with

signed to it by Capt. Back ad the Arctic
Committee in London in their prospectus

Farther thap this, we onul know that
the party of intrepid travelles had to en-
counter every obstacle to whbh polar nav-
igation is liable, and were hd to believe
that immense masses of ice,accompanied
by uncommonly severe weather, finally ar-
rested their progress.
How far the labors of the expedition will
increase our knowledge ofi the line of
coast, we are unable to say ; 'hit from what
has been stated above, it is obvious that a
new route has been opened to the Polar
Sea, and that the large blank ifhich former-
ly struck the eye, on surveying the map,
will now in a great measure be filled up.
Capt. Back will, we believe, have much
interesting information to communicate,
respecting his observations on the Aurora,
the changes on the needle as he drew north-
ward, &c. The extreme cold experienced,,
we learn, was 70 deg. below zero.

20th March, 1835, and travelled on snow-

tillery, who left this city wit him in 1833.
returned to Lachine on Thlrsday last, in
excellent health and spirits.,
During th1 first winter, je expedition
had to endure great privatids and suffer-
ings, owing to the scarcity food, and the
severity of the weather. C the 25th of
April, being exactly one yet after he had
left Lachine, and during i.very heavy
snow-storm, the despatch cinmunicating
Capt. Ross' safe return wI delivered to
Capt. Back. The primary ol0ct for which
the journey was undertaken bng thus hap-
pily fulfilled by other agent, Capt. Back
made preparations for com ing with the
secondary part of his instru ons-the ex-
amination of the coast l4ween Point
Turnagain and Ross' pillar. Several boats
were 'witlthe most activity1 build during
the winter, but in spring, fining that they
had an insufficient supply tf provisions,
they could only take one vth them. It
was not until the month of Jly, 1834, that
the expedition got to open tater on the
Thlew-ee-chudezeth or Gre Fish River.
Capt. Back, we believe, succeeded in
determining that this river runs to the
northward, and if we undersind the pur-
port of scanty information which has
reached us, it has its source i a height of
land, about 150 to 200 mile from Fort
Reliance, the winter establishment of the
expedition atthe eastern extraity of Great
Slave Lake. Capt. Back is t:e first Euro-
pean who has visited GreatFish River,
and examined its course to th Polar Seas.

From a volume now in the press of Carey,

Young Irving who accompanied his uncle
on the Tour to the Prairies."
During the month of May business had
called Maj. Dougherty to the Ote Agency,
on the Missouri. One morning, while there,
a wearied messenger made his appearance.
He had been sent to by a half-breed from
the Pawnee village, with intelligence that
the Loups had taken a Shian wonian pris-
oner, and intended to burn her at the stake,
in the course of a few days.*
The Agent determined if possible to save
her. Having made a few hurried prepar-
ations, he set off with five companions. A
journey of three days brought them to the
village. The news of their visit and the
object of it, had preceded them, and they
experienced an ungracious reception. No
hand was extended in friendship; no voice'
uttered the words of welcome.
As the little band passed through the vil-
lage, the tops of the lodges were crowded
with women and children, and an immense
concourse was drawn up in fiont pf the
dwelling of the chief. They forced-their
way through the fierce and sullenpb,
and cleared a passage to the entrance.'"
Here stood the chief. His welcome, and
his alone, was cordial. He ushered the
Agent into his dwelling, nor did he turn a
deaf ear to his request, that the Shian fe-
male mighr be spared. l e told 4myhow-
ever, that he had no power to free her, and
that all he could do would be to assemble
a council of the nation, and lay the matter
before them; that he would use his influ-
ence; and that if they could be prevailed
upon, the captive should be saved. He ac-
cordingly despatched messengerss in every
direction, to call a council of the chiefs
and braves of the nation, and they assem-
bled that very night. They took their
seats around the lodge in silence, with fa-
ces that gave but little hope of a merciful
result to their deliberations. In the centre
sat the Agent and his companions; and
near them t Shian caikve. She had
been led in vely, and made no appeal,
for she had ope. It seemed as if eve-
ry sense and filing had been, paralysed by
the horror of her approaching fate.
The Agent rose and stated his object to
the meeting. He was a firm man; he had
spent much of his life among the savages ;
but it needed all his resolution, and all his
knowledge of the Indian char ar to ef-
fect the desired object. As he spoke there
was no friendly look returned-no sound
of approbation uttered. They listened with
a calm, cold air, and he finished his ad-
dress, conscious that he had gained no
point, nor enlisted the friendly feeling of a
single breast, in the whole of the dark cir-
cles which surrounded him.
When he ended, the *chief, who during
the whole time had been seated quietly at
the foot of a pillar, rose. He was in favor
of releasing the captive, and of sending her
off with the whites. He spoke with the
wild energy, and vehement jesticulation4
customary among the Indians. During his
speech there was a silence-a portentous
silence in the lodge. But when he had
finished a hundred' throats yelled out cries
of anger, and a hundred eyes gleamed
fiercely upon him. It was not, however,
in his nature to yield. Incensed at the op-
position offered to his will, he raised his
voice, until it even drowned the cries of
the whole assembly, and swore by the
Great Spirit that she should be delivered
to the whites; and he dared any man of
the whole assembly to offer her the slight-
All quailed before the master spirit, and
bowed to the superior energy of his nature.
One after another left tbe lodge, until the
chief, the captive, and the whites were its
sole occupants. In a few moments the
chief went out also. In an hour he return-
d, followed by two armed warriors, whom

he stationed in the opposite part of the
lodge, placing the squaw between them.
Upon being asked the reason of this pre-
caution, he mentioned that the Soldier
Chief, instigated by one of the Medicine-
men of the village, had created a distur-
bance, which caused him to fear for the life
of the captive, and that these men were
placed to protect her. He evaded all far-
ther inquiries, and shortly [after left the
The whites stretched themselves upon
their bear-skins, but scarcely closed their
eyes that night. The guards kept watch
on each side of the captive; motionless,but
sleepless. On the following morning the
horses were saddled in front of the lodge,
and the party having armed themselves,
prepared to mount. The chief led out the
captive, and forcing back the angry crowd,
he placed her upon a horse, between two
of the whites; at the same time cautioning
them to lose no time in leaving the village.
They accordingly attempted to push for-
ward, but the crowd hemmed them in so
closely, that it was with difficulty they pre-
vented their horses from trampling them
down. This throng continued to press
around them until they reached the lodge
of the Soldier Chief. As they passed it a
bow twanged, from within, and an arrow,
whizzing through the air, was buried up
to the feather in the Shian captive. With
a loud scream, she tossed her arms up in
air, and fell forward upon the neck of the
horse. At the same moment, a loud roar
rose from the multitude; and two Indians
seized the bridle, and jerked the horse on-
ward. The crowd opened to let them
pass, but before the whites could follow, it
had again closed. At that moment, the
Agent heard a loud whoop behind him,
and turning, beheld the Black Chief and.

therefore sprang from his horse, and suc-
ceeded with the aid of several chiefs, in
dragging :them aprt and put an end to the
-contest. He then turned to look for the
captive. She had been borne off by the
crowd, who were rushing over the prairie
with ,deafening yells.
Still determined' if possible to save her,.
he sprang upon his horse, and galloped af-
ter them. They had torn the wretched be-
ing to pieces, smeared themselves, with her
gore, and were whirlingher head and quiv-
ering limbs in the air.

While- on a visit to Gordon castle, the

our American forests. "The duchess led

the magnolia grandiflora attracts most the
attention of strangers. It will chal enge a
comparison with any other for richness of
appearance. It attains great height. Va-

diameter at the base, the trunk rises, with
little diminution of size and without branch-
es, twenty or thirty feet. The branches
preserve great regularity, and present a
shape which the most cultivated taste
would not wish changed.
The leaves smooth and shining, are of a
deep, rich green. .The largest are from
eight to twelve inches in length and about
three and a half in width. The young
ones are encased in a kind of sheath, which
serves to protect them till they are three or
four inches long, when the envelop ex-

"Now is the pleasant time,

To the night-warbling bird, that now awake

Full orbed the moon, and with more pleasing

The ideal pictures of imagination can
scarcely surpass the loveliness and luxury
of our moonlight evenings. Though at
first a seeming paradox, the nights are
cooler, as wellas brighter, here, tlw# in the
Middle and Northern States. This is to
be-attributed mainly, to our peninsular sit-
uation, to the trade winds whose influence
is*felt during the warm season, and to the
short duration of the sun's heat, bwingto
its being nearly vertical.
S'In the invigorating coolness of such an
.hour, man, loosed froni the cares and per-
plexities of life, wanders to muse on the
past, and the scenes which "hope, the
charmer," pictures in .the future; and to
indulge in the pleasing reveries of his own
fancy. On the cool, sunny morn, when
all nature awakes with the freshness of
youth, when the ocean-bathed sun first
throws its pure, animating beams upon the
earth; when the feathered warblers carol
their inatin song of praise, when every leaf
and blade of grass sparkles with the dia-
mond drop, there is a luxury in drinking
in the fresh fragi-ance of reviving nature.
With.light step the rambler traces his way
as he catches the first gleams of the bright
orb of day, now peering above the horizon
to gladden the drooping heart of man.
But morn with all its pleasures must
yield to our moonlit eves,--those Italian
moonlights, when Luna's, silvery light
throws its charm over thequiet bosom of
nature. The sky is clear and transparent;
the air pure and fragrant; the breeze gen-
tle and refreshing: the light dimly bright,
and we seem suddenly to have awoke in
fairy land. Earth has no enchantment

CONGRESS OF AUTHORESSES-GRAND
REUNION OF POETESSES.-Tihe little town of

immortalized. At Mrs. Sedgwick's de-

where she, self, is eve principal star
of the constellation thHphers around
her, are now congregat.w e learn, a gal-
axy of female poets and literary ladies,
such as have seldom in our country at

which Coleridge was the presiding deity.

Hoey genius delights in retirement !-in
sequestered seclusion, and converse with
mind of its own pure mould! What
germs of new creations of thought, and
new poetical fancies, may not here be in-

where is the wa
tonnage. There is a question now at issue
in relation to the depth of water at the bar of
the Suwanee. The rail roal, if run there,
would pass through a country rich in its soil,
for the greater part, but it is thinly populated,
holding out no extraordinary inducements,
and when the road is built, there might be
constant risk as to- the passage over the bar
of the river.
From the St. Johns on the rout to Talla-
hassee, there are great facilities for con-
structing a rail road track. In a former
number we enumerated some of them.
A rail road from this town would begin
with business on its whole route. Other
places may grow up. But a communication,
by land, in an infant Territory wants a moth-
er to nurse it, and a father to provide for it.
When it is of:lawful age it will take care of
itself. The bent of opinion at the North, so
far as we have ascertained, is, for starting
from this place. A stranger might suppose
we were interested. Not so-not- a dollar.
We have inquired, examined, conversed with
intelligent, scientific gentlemen, and such 'is
the settled opinion. But, if we are mistaken,
it can do no injury. We will most cheerfully
use our endeavors to communicate any in-
trmation in our power, to persons interested
or to others. We will do it.impartially, and
we trust correctly.
There is now a-rail road constructing from
St.Marks to Tallahassee. The business freight
of Middle Florida, connected with that of itsf
neighboring country will be enormous. The
connection with other projected public im-
provements, will command an influence, and
afford sufficient encouragement to adopt this
route. There is in the river at this place, a
good depth of water-sufficient for any vessel
that can come over the bar.
Good wharves are, already built. In most
parts of the river a good anchorage is diffi-
cult to be found. Here is a good protection
from storms, at all times. Beside this, pas-
sengers who are to take this course from the
North to the interior of our Territory or to
Mississippi, want to find a healthy country-
where there are no regular epidemics and
fevers. We speak from experience when we
say, that so far this year, there has been no
more sickness here, than there usually is in
Massachusetts during the same months. -
We have hitherto withheld our individual
opinion. What we have said applies to the
whole of the chartered companies. An error
in judgment is no cri.me. It is better to be
mistaken in t matter relating to public im-
provement, and remain subject to correction,
than to stand like a dull, stupid statue, know-
ing nothing, and without life or action.

section than it has been since 1827. We un-

The city of Sk Marks, in Middle Florida,

THE BOAT OF LIFE.-When one gets ac-
customed to the habits, manners and lan-
guage of a country distant from the scene of
his early education, he looks quietly upon all
that passes before him, and hardly suspects
that any thing is new or uncommon:. A nor-
thern lady would tremble with affright to
cross a little river in a wherry boat,-,-and a.
sail would, only be a signal for a flaw of wind
which bore in it" death by drowning." But
it is not so on the St. Johns River. Well e
ucated ladies understand -the management of
a sail boat, and fear not to go in it where
man dare." We like this energy, this forti-
tude, this daring resolution. The storm on
the ocean is but a miniature of the storm of
human life. The master, of a gallant ship
may err in judgement and sink itin the deep;
and the man of business may bury his hopes
afid prospects in the depths of'misfortune.--
But when a woman, the wife of his bosom,
braces herselfagainst trouble, and rises proud-
ly against adversity, the husband must be
" any thing but a man" who will not rouse all
his energy, and endeavor to sustain the ob-
ject of his love.
We learn from the Charleston Gazette, that
the public mind in New York was much ex-
cited against the Abolitionists, particularly
Tappan, and it was supposed that he would
be fortunate if he escaped personal injury.
A Circular, (says the Boston Post of the
14th ult.) calling a meeting at Faneuil Hall,
of the citizens of Boston opposed to the pro-
ceedings of the advocates of immediate eman-
cipation, signed by about five hundred indi-
viduals, was left at Topliff 's yesterday, where
it received a large accession of subscribers.
The list was to remain open for signatures at
the Reading Roorhs and at the Globe Insur-
ance Office, until Saturday afternoon.
A great public meeting has been held at
the Park in New York. Tappan had taken
his family to Brooklyn, and some of his
neighbors had removed from his dangerous
ATTACK OF AN ALLIGATOR,-A young man
by the name of NoRTbN~ r ~ent at a place
called Brandy Branch,. awyout twenty-five
miles from here, was bitten in the hand and
arm by an Alligator, about two weeks since, -
and a bone fractured. We understand that
he was endeavoring to get some water from
a stream, and while clearing the surface
with his hand, the Alligator seized it, and he
was only saved by gouging the animals eyes,
upon which he relinquished his hold. The
young man is much injury and it may yet
be necessary to perform 'Mputation. The
Alligator was afterwards tahRendfa1iftriau red
almost ten feet in length.
A yankee once told us, in joke, that he had
frequent dealings withmen of no principle,
and, as he wanted to "make a spec,"' he
bought their souls as he called them, and put
them all into a small room without any funds,
when they immediately commenced swap-
ping jackets, and cleared five dollars apiece.
The price of a passage from New York to
London or Liverpool, in the regular Packets,
is $140 including wines and liquor, or $120
We understand(says the lichmond Com-
piler,) that the sum of twenty thousand dol-
lars has been made up in New Orleans, as
a reward to be paid for the delivery of Ar-
thur Tappan, the celebrated Agitator, up-
on the levee in that city. Tappan will soon
find that even his extreme wealth will not
enable him to repose in quiet; and he may
himself realize some of the apprehensions
which he has been instrumental in intict
ing on others.

LOVE STORY OF A BACHELOR.
FROM THE FRENCH.
I was born in a romantic country vil-
lage; but, not caring to make' myself very
interesting to you, I shall speak neither of
murmuring brooks, nor of birds chanting
the green leaves beneath."
The brooks no longer murmer for ,me ;
the birds no longer sing; my green leaves
of spring are turning yellow. I am thirty-
four years old. And when a man is thirty-,
four years old-for him, believe me, ladies,
if he be not of a peculiar temperament, but
has travelled, and filled public stations-
he cares little about singing or being sung
to; still less about murmuringg brooks."
I, for my own part, would not give a cent
for the murmurs of all the brooks in the
world. I have enough to do to murmur
Happiness is a "Racine," and every one
knows the epithet bestowed by the ro-
mantiques" on this prince of elegiac poets.,
Happiness is, in fact, like a jester-I mis-
understand him, and then I am vexed with
him, sick of him. He gives me nausea.
I wish to have no more of happiness. I
believe no longer in its existence. I never
have believed. It is an imposture! Do
you doubt this? Then hear my story-a
story sufficient to make savages, aye, brutes,
the most ferocious brutes, shed tears. Dur-
ing fifteen long years I lived in a pool of
water, as it were, supplied by my own eyes.
So abundant, indeed, were my tears, that
my philanthropy made me uneasy.' I
feared the world would be visited by an-
Whatever it was that put it in my head
to fall in love I cannot tell. Believe me,
gentle' reader, on my soul, my falling in
love was no act of mine. But Iloved. Am
I asked how I knew that I loved ? I will*
tell you. When near the adored one I was
unhappy, for I feared she loved me not.-_
When distant I, was more.unhappy still.
The sight of her set my blood in a boiling
state; and not to see her, distracted my bo-
som. Many were the sad days I passed-
many the long, the sleepless nights. My
hair was turning grey. This, by the by,
was the only traitor to the secret; for, 1
should have told you, I loved in silence.
In silence! Yes, in silence to her I-loved,
whilst in the depth of my own heart I
heard the roar of a very tempest of love.
It was one evening, at that hour when
the features of a lady may, with impunity,
"give the lie" (excuse me, my fair readers)
to her voice: before the candles were
lighted, one evening was it, that ihe tones
of my Dulcinea appeared to respond in
those of" love for love." I saw (of course)
no smile, mocking the accents of her lips;
no glance of her eye, in the shade of that
apartment, showing how little she thought
of my plaints. I saw nothing, I heard
nothing, but that voice, which seemed to
assure me I was beloved as I loved.
As if by accident, she asked me my age.
"I am twenty-eight," I replied; and I
said s,in such a state of unconsciousness,
that I might as probably have said "fifty."
But, the thought of that scene is too much
for me! I was at the moment I made this
answer, lost to every thing. I had but one
thought. It was of her, who, veiled in the
darkness of the apartment, sat beside me.
It was settled that we were to be married
on the morrow. I will not re-count all
the follies which, in the overflow of joy,
contemplating the proximity and certainty
of so much happiness, I committed. They
are easily imagined.
Every thing was ready; the requisite
purchases made; the "wedding garb" put
min order, the rooms were garlanded; the
ball room figured; no expense was spared;
in short, I was about to be perfectly happy.
Certain am I, that the magistrate who was
to perfect my felicity (it was the worthy
mayor of the fifth arrondisement) will never
forget the scene for the rem ainder of his
life. He missed by it the nest attack of
dyspepsia, (from over-feasting) which has
been known in Paris half a century.
We had proceeded as far in the ceremo-
ny as that part in which I had to declare
my age :-" Thirty-four years !"
"Thirty-four !" exclaimed my wife that-
was-about-to-be, "why, you told me twqn-
"It may be So Miss.; but you know '1
know not what wesay, when in love."
My future better lf affectionately an-
swered thus':-" Well, ir, when men know
not what they say, it's tiipe for women to
know wl'*t they do! Your servant, sir, I
shall not marry to a man of thirty-four, for
I thought this was too much, particular-
ly the latter words, "for example." I told
her so. She was about to quit the lace.
Her father remon'strated with her of the
impropriety of her conduct., All in vain!
She grew still more angry, and remonstra-
ted with her father. In the midst of her
anger, she gave an inconsiderate jerk to
one ofher ringlets. JMon Dieu! thathead
of hair which had entangled my heart! It
.all came off! [it was a wg-] and a bald
young lady stood before me.!
The'scene was so droll that I could not
repress my laughter. I was cured of my
passion; and shall now die contented a
bachelor. On what depends, then, human
Often it hangs by a hair!
A certain minister lately paid a visit to a
lady of his acquaintance, who was newly
married and who-was attired in the modern
indecent fashion. After the usual compli-
ments he familiarly said, I hope you have
got a good husband, madam."
"Yes, sir," she replied, "and a good
"I don't know what to say about his
goodness," added the minister, rather blunt-
ly, "for my Bible teaches me that a good
man should clothe his wife; but he lets
. you go half clad."
The wife of a lime merchant at Bayeux,
in France, recently taking home her drunk-
en husband at night, was stopped by the
officers of the customs, who demanding
what she had, she replied a hog. They
then asked the weight, she answered 200
pounds. The next morning, in spite ofher
remonstrances, and her declaration that it
was all a plaisanterie, she was compelled to
to pay the domestic import duty on 200
pounds of lard.
An Irish judge, when passing sentence
on a man convicted of bigamy, severely
lectured:the fellow on his uxorious crime,
and regretted that the law did not allow
him to award a greater punishment than
seven years transportation. "Had I my
will, you sinner," said the learned Judge,
you should not have so mild a punish-
ment, for I should sentence you, for the
term of your natural life, to live in the
same house with both your wives."
YANKEE-Question.-You han't none of
ou seen nothing of no hat no where along
here upon'none of these seats, have you?
Answer.-We han't none of us, seen
nothing of no hats nor nothing of no kind
no where on none of these seats nor no

The man of business will be sure to find
therein the most'recent and correct informa-

with mercantile affairs; the politician will
meet with a faithful abstract of the move-

to suit their tastes, in the choicest extracts
from native and foreign periodicals, and in
the contributions of popular and approved
writers. The tone preserved throughout, will
be that of scrupulous morality, so that the
most fastidious shall have nothing to object
to on this score-and the wish of the prdprie-

The popularity now enjoyed by thisjournal,

GREAT NATIONAL WORK.
Of useful and Entertaining Knowledge, to be il-
lustrated by numerous Engravings.
BY THE BOSTON BE WICK COMPANY.
T HE success which has attended the pub-
lication of the best Magazines from the
English Press, has led to preparations for is-
suing a periodical more particularly adapted
to the wants and taste of the American pub-
lic. While it will be the object of the pro
prietors to make the work strictly what its
title indicates, it will, nevertheless, contain
all articles of interest to its patrons, which
appear in foreign Magazines.
Extensive preparations have been entered
into, both with Artists and Authlors, to fur-
sish, from all parts of the Union, drawings
tad illustrations of every subject of interest,
ich the publishers confidently believe will
e le them to issue a work honorable to its
tit1 and acceptable to the American People.
The American Magazine is published
monthly-each number containing between
forty and fifty imperial oetavo pages, at Two
DOLLARS per annum, payable in advance.
It comprises-Portraits and Biographical
-Sketches of distinguished Americans; Views
of Public B-Tildings, Monuments, and im-
provements ; Landscape scenery-the bound-
less variety land beauty of* whKih, in this
country, will form an unceasing source of in-
struction andgratimon; Engravings and

Birds, Beasts, Fish nd Insects, together

TO THE PUBLIC.
T HE SUBSCRIBER, having purchased
The Sovlhern Agriculluralist from 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 Mr. Legare m its
commencement, in the y(4r 1828, ihe is
t ls practically acquainted with fthllde in
vwch itshould le conducted. Its publica-
tion will be continued on thsame terms and
in the same nanier as her afore with such
improvemeuits 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 effortsiin Agriculture and.Horticul-
tie, he invites free and unrestricted commu-
nication from all persons occupied jn these
pursuits. Let no one imagine that solitary"
facts or isolated experiments are too trivial to
be communicated. ,fAll systematic knowl-
edge is but the aggregate of humble 4articu-
laro,-and ci ence, in eri-deytime i
brought to perfection, not through the instru-
mentality of a single exrraor*iary mind, but
by the contribution of par ilars by rany
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-A
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 methods of
Husbandry, but also of facts relating to our
system of Slavery. The subjects of the deci-
pline, the treatmentthe characters of our
Slaves, are fairly suited to its pages, and
constitute topics as interesting and important
as any which caix engage either our own at-
tention or the attention of those abroad, who
feel a legitimate interest in our concerns.
The subscriber begs leave, in conclusion,
to 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
the Literary Contributions of Southern Plan-
-tTs-. He confiTently -row leaves this matter
in their hands, feeling a. full assurance that
there is wanting on the part of our Planters,
neitherathe liberality nor mental energies ne-
cessary to sustain the Southern Agriculturist.
