WHAT SHALL BE MY THEME ?
LADY, shall I sing of Love-
Of moonlit stream, and shady grove,
Of two fond hearts that wandered there,
To breathe their vows-a happy pair !
But what is Love in modern times ?
'T is only found in idle rhymes-
We sing of vows,-of grove, and stream,
Alas 't is all a poet's dream:
Then what shall be my theme ?
Shall it be a battle-lay--
Of flashing steel, and dread affray ?
Of all that mingle in a fight,
The y field, and sullen flight ?
The mwing shrieka-the struggling breath,
As yields the fallen man to death ?
But song like this thou wouldst not hear-
It is not meet for lady's ear:
What then shall be my theme..?
Shall I, lady, sing of Life ?
This, too, is but a scene of strife-
From hnanhood's dawn to hoary age,
One ceaseless warfare we but wage;
The world is one wide battle field-
We war with oare-to death -we yield ;.'
In vain do we misfortune brave,
Our only refuge is the grave :
What then shall be my theme ?
Shall it be of by-gone days,
When Hope threw forth her brightest rays-
When Time flew by on golden wing,
And Pleasure in our path did fling,
Her cheerful light, and sweetest flowers,
And Mirth did crown the rosy hours ?
Bright, blessed time! We sigh to turn
Front scenes for which the heart doth yearn :
This must not be my theme !
The prAsent is a dreary track,
Our thoughts are ever flying back
To that brief hour of childhood free,
When all our life was poetry-
Then turn with heaviness to trace,
Anew our dull and mkgyr4ace;
The present only wal1 sigh,
Deep shadows shroudnii gloom its sky :
It shall not be my the
Canno taurity i -
we,, wi n -.bold,
Its hten mysteries I bol,d
And .g of things to come, with strain
f Tat shall revive our hopes again ?
It may not be-a secret spell
Moves o'er its chords to hush their swell:
It cannot be my theme !
Be thou my theme, 0 Death!-to thee
Will we pour forth our minstelsy-
To thee, who bringest glad repose
To hearts bowed down,and crushed with woes!
When folded in thy mighty arm,
We are released from every harm;
Then take our lay! Our humble song
Is thine-to thee it doth belong !
Death-Death shall be my theme !
C. P. I.
He who attackcan absent friend, or does
not defend him when defamed by another
-td t man is a dark character.
There are some reproaches which form
a commendation, and some praises which
are in fact slanders.
The drop hollows the stone, not by its
force, but by the frequency of its falling.
It is common to man to err, but it is the
characteristic of afool to persevere in error.
Love may sli pet of the heart, but it
will notbe forcedlt of it.

TRANSLATED FROM ROLES 1T FAITS MEMO-
RABLES NAPOLAN. -
,At the coronatioajf the emperor on the
2d of December, 1,k ardly had the em-
press returned to t i Pu ileries when she
retired to her apartment, and wished to be
alone for a few moments. Informed of
this ircumstance the emperor goes to her.
Jud, of his astonishment on seeing Jose-
phine supporting her head iqon her hands
and bathed in tears. "
What is the matter, mpdame ?' inquir-
ed he with earnestness.
'What shall I say, sire?? replied the sen-
sitive Josepnine,. throwing herself inth his
arms-' I know not, myself; bit for two
hours past I have felt as if I must weep.-
I am, nevertheless, the happiest of spouses.'
'Come you are a child-console your-
self. It is a woman's caprice. Dry your
eyes-you have never looked so beautiful
as to-day. Above all on returning to the
saloon, let ,no one perceive that you have
wept. They will say that I have made a
scene for you.'
Think of these involentary tears at the
instant when Josephine, at the height ol
her grandeur, ought not to have shed them;
think of those painful tears which attend-
ed her upon the throne, and you will be
tempted to say that she had a presentiment
of her divorce, and of the events which af-
terward conducted her to the tomb.
When the unfortunate Duke d'Enghien
saw that he must die, he gave a lock of his
hair and his portrait to M. Savary, begging
him to remit theti to Josephine, being cer-
tain that she would send them to a person
who was very dear to him.-This was Ma-
demoiselle de Rohan, whom the prince had
tenderly loved.-Josephine received the
portrait and the hair which she moistened
with her tears. Sensible of the noble con-
fidence of the unfortunate prince, she in-
stantly dispatched a trusty messenger to
carry the hair and the portrait to their ad-
dress. Seeing the next morning, that her
husband shunned her, she thought that
having'heard of the message she had sent
he was displeased with her. She explain-
ed it to him in the sweetest way in the
Hasit ever happened thatJ I have pre-
vented you from doing a good action ?' said
Napoleon to her. 'You are happy, mad-
ame, in not being forced to do bad ones.'
These last words which Josephine con-
fided to the Count Beauhamai, and whose
authenticity is warranted, explain the death
of the Duke d' Enghien and Napoleon's
state of mind after this politic murder.
Arrived at the summit of his power, Na-
poleon felt the necessity of reforming the
morals, which the revolution had tolerably
perverted. Hlie therefore pronounced with
severity against every thing licentious about
his court. The following is an example
taken in his own family:
Lucien, his brother, possessed a very
beautiful dwelling near Neuilly. He had
had constructed there a theatre where he
often played tragedy or comedy with his
sisters and intimate friends. Napoleon
was invited there with the inhabitants of
Malmaison.-The piece was Alzire.-Eli-
za performed Alzire, and Lucien, Zamore.
The warmth of the declarations-the en-
ergetic expression of the gestures, and the
well known truth of the costumes were
revolting to Napoleon. On going out he
gave vent to his indignation. 'It is an in-
famous thing,' said he to M. de Bourrienne
with much warmth. I wjll not and ought
not to suffer such indecencies. I shall sig-
nify to Lucien that he must not have it
Then on entering the saloon, as soon as
his brother had undressed, he addrefed
him warmly, and forbade him to give sim-
ilar representations in future. Lucien took
the warning very ill.
How,' said he to his broker, at home,
in my own house, shall I no be free to act
as I please ? It is a right t at could not
be denied without injustice, t the simplest
'Know that you are not simple citi-
zen,' replied Napoleon ; 'yoI tare my bro-
ther, and when it is part ofn r policy and
my duty to re-establish good 'orals, it be-
comes you more th any body, not to set
an example ofbad.' Tie thinmg'ended here;
but they never afterward in LIcien's thea-
tre played pieces in which t re was any
thing objectionable. ,
On the day of the coronation of the em-
peror, they sent off from Pari= ,n immense
crown which was carried aWiy by a bal-
loon. Chance so willed it tha it was found
at Rome upon the tomb of- ero where, it
was broken. The Duke de Iassano relat-
ed this circumstance to Napleon, taking,
all proper precautions not to wound his
feelings. 'Well,' replied the emperor, 'bet-
ter that it should have fallen there than in
Junot, while yet but a sergeant, was writ-
ing one day in the open ir, under the dic-
tation of Napoleon,. theiton horseback.-
On the instant a cannon ball passed be-
tween them, and covered Junot's paper
with sand, who jumped ip and said smil-
ingly to the ball-' Thans anahber bullet,
you are very obliging i leed to put the
sand on my paper yourself.
The gaiety and coolness fJunot, charm-
ed Napoleon. His rapid 'advancement is
When they came to announce to the
emperor that Prince Louis of Prussia, the
brother of the king, had been killed in the
battle of Sarlfield, by,a qiarter-master he
replied with visible discontent; So much
the worse, gentlemen, so much the worse!
We wound princes and make them pris-
oners, but we don't kill them.' So the
brave quarter-master was not made cap-
tain. 'Napoleon,' said General Legrand,
S'was doubtless ignorant that the quarter-
master, who had a hard contest with a
brave man like Prince Louis, had not the
choice of means.'
One day of a great review upon the
place du carrousel, Napoleon was riding at
F full gallop along the line when his hat fell
off. A young pupil of the holy technic
school who happened to be near,.picked it
up and presented itto the emperor. 'Thanks
t Captain,' said Napoleon smiling.
'In what regiment, sire ?' asked the
young man with an admirable presence of
mind. The emperor, astonished, stops,
looks at the pupil a moment and replies
immediately-' In my guard.' Rapp took
the name of the young man, who the next
morning received his commission of Cap-
tain. But not having yet finished his stu-
dies he did not enter upon active service
till two years afterward, although his com-
pensation as captain was paid him from the
day of his nomination.
[From the American Magazine.]
GENERAL DANIEL MORGAN.
General Morgan of Virginia was a dis-
tinguished officer of the American army,
in the war of the revolution. He was a
native of New Jersey, but must have re-
moved into Virginia when quite young;
for he had been residing thereabout twen-
ty yeafs wlien'tie'War bean. Little has
been recorded of his family or his educa-
tion. But it is said he was destitute ofpro-
perty; and drove a wagon sqme time for a
living. In the expedition of General Brad-
dock against the French and Indians, on
the Ohio, which was undertaken soon af-
ter, he served as a private, at the age of
twenty-two or three, and was wounded'.-
On a charge of contumacy to a British of-
ficer in this campaign, he is said to have
received five hundred la hes! One can
hardly conceive of his surviving such a se-
*ere punishment; and perhaps there was
some favor shown by the men who gave
them. It is mentioned to his honor, that
in (the war of the revolution, he was hu-
mane and generous in his treatment of the
British officers who fell into his hands.-
After Braddock's unfortunate expedition
he resumed his former occupation; and
soon acquired property to purchase a small
farm. For some years aft r he was twen-
ty, he was much addicted to boxing and
gambling; but soon becarre frugal as well
as industrious, and Jamen.ed the excesses
of his early years; yet hs boldness and
courage were retained.
When the war began, 1i was early ap-
pointed to command a tr op of horse in
Virginia. And with thi company he
marched to the American army at Cam-
bridge, in the summer of 1775. General
Washington, who knew him well, had
great confidence in his bravery apd patri-
otism; end he detached him to join the
expedition against Canada, the following
autumn. No officer was more di'lnguish-
ed than Morgan, on that memorable occa-
sion: and when Arnold was wounded in
the first assault, the command fell on him.
Soon afterwards, when General Montgom-
ery was slain, Morgan, with hers, was
taken prisoner. While in thte hands of
the British, he was offered the rank arid
pay of a Colonel in that service, which he
indignantly rejected. The following year
Morgan was exchanged, and immediately
joined the American army. Washington
gave him command of a rifle corps, with
which he was detached to the assistance
of Gates, then opposing the British army in
its advance from Canada, He bore a dis-
tinguished part in the battles, which pre-
ceded the surrender ofBu goyne, near Sar-
atoga in October 1777. When he joined
the main army, after that glorious event,
he was employed by the commander-in-
chief in several perilous enterprises, which
he conducted with equal courage and judg-
ment. In 1780, he found his health de-
clining, and retired from the army; but
was again induced to join the army in the
South, where the British were making dep-
relations on the inhabitants. He now re-
ceived a commission as a Brigadier Gene-
ral, and followed Gates into South Caroli-
na. But Gates was obliged to retire, with-
out accomplishing any thing; for the Brit-
ish were far the most numerous. Yet this
did not discourage Morgan. He command-
ed in the attack on Colonel Tarlton at the
Cowpens, who was defeated; and Morgan,
Colonel Howard, Colonel Washington and
General Pickens, were honorably noticed
by Congress, for their brave conduct on
that occasion. When General Greene was
afterwards appointed to the command of
the southern army, Morgan continued
\sometime with him. The army was oblig-
ed to retreat, for want ofanenadj provis-
ions; and it was said Greene and Morgan
did not agree as to the route best to be tak-
en : and soon after, he retired from the ar-
my ; some said in disgust, andjothers, with
more probability of truth, (for!on a former
occasion he had yielded to General Green's
opinion, and the latter had nothing arbitra-
ry in his deportment) that his state of health
made it necessary for him to return to his
family. General Morgan served one term
in Congress, from Frederick county; and
he appeared in the field once ibore, having
command of the Virginia r ilitia against
the whisky insurrection in Pe nsylvania, in
1794. He died in 1799, the game year in
which the death of Washington occurred.

AN INTERESTING DISCLOSURE.
THE FRENCH CLAIMS, &c.--It may be
remembered that some eight or nine weeks
ago, an inquiry was made through the col-
umns of this paper, respecting the authen-
ticity of a rumor, that Mr. Crawford, while
minister of the United States in .Paris, had
declined a prefer of the allies, at the down-
fall of Napoleon-to include indemnity for
the claims of America on France, in the
amount of retributions then exacted from
that nation. No satisfactory answer was
given, and we began to fear that, what can-
not but be deemed a remarkable instance
of sympathy, for the altered fortunes df a
friendly nation, and of generous confidence
in its honor and justice under happier cir-
cumstances, might, after all, turn out to be
merely an unfounded rumor.
Happily, the anntexed eaterc nt, receiv-
ed by the Silvie de GrasscSs the matter
The letter of Mr. Vail establishes that
Mf. Crawford did receive and did decline,
a proffer-indirect, but not, therefore un-
authorized-of the aid of the allies, to ob-
tain indemnity of our claims on France _;-
and the authentication of this fact should
cause the blush of shame ,to tingle in the
cheeks of those honorable Deputies, who,
in the discussion of the treaty of July, were
so lavish of epithets upon the bargain driv-
ing spirit of the Americans.
We thank Mr. Vail for this contribution
to American annals.
To the Editor of the New York American:
PARIS, July 13, 1835.
Sir:-Your paper of-June last, made
an appeal to\ any one who may have a
knowledge of the fact, frequently repeated,
that our government at a time of great
pressure upon France, refused to avail it-
self of the means it had, of satisfying, by
force, the claims provided for by the un-
executed treaty of 1831. You justly re-
mark, that a fact so honorable in itself
should be sustained and gp unauthenticat-
ed to the world; and it afords me pleas-
ure to be able to contribute to an act of jus-
tice which is, in the first place due to the
memory of an honest statesman, now no
more, whose character, in point of hones-
ty, at least, has passed unscathed through
the virulence of party; and then, to the
government, which nobly approved of his
course. At the period so calamitous for
France, when nearly the whple word was
brandishing over her head the sword of
vengeance, I, although very young, con-
stitued a part of Mr, Crawford's legation
at Bris, and I distinctly recollect, that, in
a nversation between General Lafayette,
f whom the emperor Alexander had a
d at personal regard, and Mr. Crawford,
the former stated that the Russian Empe-
ror (and not, as your correspondent sup-
poses, Lord Wellington,) had mentioned
his particular solicitude for the U. States-;
that he was very desirous of reconciling
them with England, and had moreover in-
timated that, should the American Govern-
ment desire it, he would cause .our claims
to be included in the aggregate amount
then making out for settlement by France.
It may not be amiss to say, also, that,
such was the magnitude of the sums then
claimed by the allies, our own world, if
added to them, have been like a drop *in
the ocean. To this semi-official proposal,
which doubtless night, ifencouraged, have
become a positive one, Mr. Crawford
promptly replied, that it did not become
the ancient ally of 'rance to join its ene-
mies at a time when itlat country was over-
whelmed with misfortune, and that he
thought he spoke the language of his gov-
ernment, when he, at once declined the
offer, abd in its name, said,, that it preferr-
ed trusting to the gopd faith of France,
1hnd to its dispensation when able to do so,
of discharging so just debtb.
The conversation qpded to was at the
time,* believe, mentioned by Mr. 'Craw-
ford in his semi-official correspondence,
because, from the nature of the case, it
could not have become the subject of a
formal despatch; and it is more than prob-
able that the private correspondence of the
then Secretary of State contains it.
Such are the circumstances, as far as I
can. recollect and they made a deep im-
pression on me at the time, of an act which
instead of being as our long forbearance
has been used against us, should on the
contrary excite the admiration of nations,
and cause the heart of every citizen of that
one capable of performing it to thrill with
delight and pride.
I am respectfully, your obd't servant,
EUGENE A. VAIL.
OLD BACHELORs.-There are certain
peculiar characteristics which are always
found mixed with the ingredients which
make up an old bachelor. In 'the first
place, certain peculiarities which were sim-
ilar to the natural disposition of the whole
tribe of single gentlemen, have been in-
creased by a similarity of habits in their
single state. Similar in the original struc-
ture of their minds, they become more fand
more assimilated by the simplicVp their
modes of life. They are generaly.aixmous
to pass for youth, and extremely offended
when asked their age. Though they may
have no intention of getting married, they
manifest a great yearning after the fair sex,
and are particularly partial to young girls.
They have a great abhorance of old maids,'
perhaps because they are so often associat-
ed together in the raillery of conversation.
They are generally very armnorous, very
fickle, rather coquettish, and very dreat
dandies! They have likewise a great re-
gard for their dignity, since, under their
peculiar circumstances, it is hard to sup-
_port it. They have remained single, not
on account of their inability to love, button
account of their inability to remain con-
stant in their affections. Their hearts are
hollow like a balloon-being blown up
with selfishness and vanity; and the ar-
rows which Cupid throws at them pass
right through ; finding no substance to de-
tain them. Many of them have deferred
marriage, from prudential motives until an
advanced period' of life, when their age
and peculiarities render them soJntolera-
ble, even to the least fastidious of the sex,
that unless they have wherewithal to bribe
the affections of a female, they are obliged
to endure from necessity, that state in which
they had long remained from choice. Boys
hoot at them -girls snicker; old maids
turn up their noses, and dogs bark at them-
-and their latter years are thus spent in
suffering penance for the errors of their
The celebrated Fontenelle said, that wo-
men have a fibre more in the heart, and a
cell less in the brain, than man.
Women, in the course of action, describe
a smaller circle than men, but the perfec-
tion of a circle consists not in its dimen-
sions, but in its correctness. There may
be here and there a soaring female, who
looks down with disdain on the paltry af-
fairs of this "dim speck called earth;" who
despises order and regularity, as indications
of a grovelling spirit. But a sound mind
judges directly contrary. The larger the
capacity, the wider is the sweep it takes
in. A sensible woman loves to imitate the
order which is stamped on the whole cre-
ation of God. All the operations of nature
are uniform, even in their changes, and
regular to their infinite variety. As the
dew lies longest and produces more fertili-
ty in the shade; so woman, in the shade of
domestic retirement, sheds around her
path richer and more permanent blessings
than man, who is more exposed to the
glare and observation of public life.
One of the greatest mysteries is the ex-
pression of the human eye.-It depends
upon something beyond organization, for I
hage seen the eyes of two persons which
in their structure and color wed, appa-
rently, quite the same, and yet (e ocular
expression of each individual wan perfectly
different. Some owe the expr'e ion of
their countenance chieflyto the eyes, dkeiwrs
to the mouth; nor is it, upon the- e,
easy to say which feature is the unost'Hl.
pressive. The intellect, I believe, is more
especially communicated by the eyes, and
the feelings by the mouth. I never knew
a man of imaginative genius who had not

SCNERY OF TEE FAR WEST.-A gen-
tleman who accompanied the U. S. Dra-
goons in their e.epdition last year to the
'farWest,,thusdecribps, the scenery in the-
neighborhood of the famous Pawnee Vil-
I have read of the' Alps, and have seen
paintings of the most celebrated portion of
Alpine scenery. The Alps are higher; but
in sublimity, grandeur, and general effect,
they must, and in time will, yield the palm
to the hitherto unknown, unvisited Paw-
nee Peaks. Here the gradual swell, the
beetling precipice, the castellated battle-
ment, the solitary tower, the glittering roar-
ing cascade, the shady vale, and the open-
ing vista, disclosing in its turn distant views
,of new grandeur-all, all the rich combi-
nation of mountainri scenery are here thrown
together, forming an unrivalled .whole,
which, in years to come, wih be the goal of
all travellers on earth.
On the evening of the 21st we reached
the goal of our enterprise,~the long sought
Pawnee Village. Here was a new matter
.of wonder. We approached a sweep of
perpendicular mountains, whose tops are
wholly inaccessible to the human foot from
this side, and reached the village through
the passage which leads to it, a narrow de-
file, which one hundred good men, with a
proper armament, and a good engineer,
could keep against the countless legions
that Napoleon led to Moscow.
S"After passing through this defile, we
immediately entered the village, situated
in a beautiful bottom, on the margin of a
river,a supposed, by some, to be the main
Red River, but which is only a principal
fork of that stream.
"Like theirs of the southern rivers, its
bottom is a flat bed of fine sand, that main-
tains nearly the same level all the way
across% tb4i water -eyo-"but a fevy inches
-deep; yet, unlike the water of otigb rivers,
this is earlyy as salt as the watdr of,the
Kenhav~,saline. Whe this streak is full,
it is five Jhmndred yards ,wide, and about
ten feet deep. Tbe natives say that the
salt taste proceeds from great beds of rock
salt about twenty miles above, and exhibit-
ed to us quantities that they had procured
there. Ouir arrival here was timely; for
we were hungry and had nothing to eat.
They had plenty of good corn just in good'
eating .der,' pumpkins, squashes, water
and mi'^ melons, together with dried buf-
falo an orse meat. For supplies of these
.articles"s gave them tobacco, tin cups,
butt ns, the yellow stripess from our panta-
loonk, &c.; but when we offered them
pey they laughed:at us, for these unso-
phisticated beings knew not its value,-
When we could explain to them the use,
-of any thing, they would trade f6r it; but
as we could not make them sensible of the
kuse of money, -none of it would they have.'
THE MEETINGs.-A noble spirit is per-
vading and animating the North. The re-
lations of kindted and country-the obli-
gations of constitutional faith-the hallow-
ed ties of union and liberty which bind our
.cluster ofrepublics in national fellowship--
have asserted their legitimate and righte-
ouis force-and the North is rising in its
might to put down and extinguish the in-
cendiary influence which but yesterday
showered its fire-brands into the bosom of
the South. We are even about to accom-
plish the great purpose of engaging our sis-
ter statestin the truly constitutional work of
State legislation, or State judicial interfer-
ence, in behalf of Southern rights. We
congratulate the gallant and generous Bos-
tonians and Philadelphians on the firm and
decided manner in which they have re,-
deemed their constitutional faith, by rep-
robating the treason of our foes; and we
congratulate ourselves on the friendly host
that is ready to rally under our banner, in
defence of our domestic institutions-our
altars and our fire-sides, our wives and our
The proceedings of the Boston meeting

feeling in favor the constitutional sanctity
of Southern Institutions. But while un-
compromising in the true and rightful
Southern stand, that the people at the
North have no right to condemn Southern
Institutions, or measures, in matters of re-
served right, we are not disposed, at pres-
ent, to quairel. with those who, are other-
wise so soLtnd,in constitutional sentiment,
and so redolent of friendly feeling. Let us
be even warm in our expression of heart-
felt gratitude towards the overflowing as-

dle of our common independence,).8 whose

,senting voice, of the preamble and resolu-

pus, arrived here from a cruise, on the 3d
inst. We' are indebted to a friend on board,
for the' following brief memoranda of the
cruise. The The G. sailed from this port
on the 9th inst. bound to Matamoras,
Galveston, &c. in Mexico, and when in
Lat. 27 22 N., Long. 94-40 W, experienced
one of the hurricanes which are so com-
mon in the Gulf of Mexico at this season,
which lasted 48 hours, during which time
the Grampus sustained much damage-her
hammock nettings stove in, main jib-boom
carried away, sails and rigging much in-
jured, and the officers and crew suffered
considerably. Capt. Ritchie was on deck
the whole time.
On the 19th ult. discovered a wrecked
sail to windward. The Captain stood for
the wreck, which proved to be the Schr.
Watchman, Capt. Murry, 4 days from Rio
grande, bound to New Orleans, with $100,-
000 on board, many passengers; among
the passengers the ex-vice president and
family of Mexico. Capt. Murry of the
Watchman, made his distressed situation
(as the W. was dismantled and without
masts, sails, boats &c.) known to the comt.
of the Grampus, who furnished him with
spars, sails &c. and took him in tow and
safely landed him at the S. W. Pass of the
Mississippi river on the night of the 25th
ult. The following is a list of the officers
of the Grampus.

From Indiana, it appears that the fol-

R. Boon, John Carr, Amos Lane, Jonathan

a new member, elected against Mr. Ewing,
in h district of decidedly Whig.politics.-
All the gentlemen chosen were original

to the American flqg, only the stripes are

blue cross. The klexandros was built for
a brig of war, ani is owned by her com-
mander, who is afine, stout looking man,
and arrests the attention of every one as
he passes in the streets. This is not to be
wondered at, accustomed as we are to
the sight of pett oat trowsers, short jacket
and red cap. Formerly, I believe, the
Greeks wore th turban; but since they
have acquired t eir independence, the red
cap with a tass` suspended from the top
is now universa3y worn. The officers and
crew are all Geeks, not one of whom, as
I am informed, understands our language,
and are all dressed in the costume of their
country. This vessel lies at the south side
of India wharf-and is quite an object of
curiosity; at le.t, I should judge so, by
the thousands of persons that thronged the
Wharf thb whole of this day. As she is
the first,/f that brave and ancient nation
that ha visited the United States, I hope
her commander will receive every atten-
tion wnd civility from our public authori-

EXCELx'T SUGGESTION.-By a letter
we find i rthe Cincinnati Whig,, from the
Hon. John C. Wright, who was appointed
by the Cincinnati Bar to deliver an eulogy
upon th1 latelChief Justide Marshall, we
learn tha he declines delivering the eulogy,
for the reason 'that to do justice to the Life
and Character of so great, good and virtu-
ous a mani-one who was "next to Wash-
ington, only," requires more time and tal-
ents than he cotild command. He, how-
ever, suggests, that instead of an eulogy,
the Bar procure from the unrivalled sculp-
tor, Powers, of Cincinnati, a Bust of the
late Chief Justice Marshall, to be placed in
the Court Room-as it would place, in a
durable form, before the Courts and Bar, a
model, worthy off imitation. The sugges-
tion is an excellent one, and worthy of a-
doption by the members of the Bar, gen-
erally, throughout the country.

RUNAWAY THIEF.-Our readers have,
probably read the advertisement in our pa-

hired a horse and chaise of Mr. Mason, of
this village, on the'11th ult. Notwith-
standing the society for detecting thieves

rection, the curious animal has thus far
eluded their vigilance, and is yet roaming
-nobody knows where-certain it is that
Mr. Mason is left minus one horse and
chaise. The fair thief was a middling
sized woman, and, (as the ostler who lent
the horse and chaise declares) the most
beautiful one he ever saw. She was dress-
ed in black silk, with a straw bonnet and
black veil, name unknown. The horse
was a small, slim neck, brown animal.-
The chaise was black, some worn, the
handle on the nigh side of the dasher was
off-the harness silver-nmowmted.-: .

A great anti-abolition meeting was held
in Boston onh Friday, at which Gen. Ly-
man, the mayor, presided, and which was
addressed by Richard Fletcher, Peleg
Sprague and -larrison Gray Otis. Reso-
lutions were passed by acclamation, which
in substance deprecated any attempt on
the part of northern cities, to interfere with
the domestic policy of the South, by ap-
peals to the fears of the master or the pas-
sions of the slave, arid also deprecated all
associations instituted in the non-slave-
holding states with ii intent to act within
the slave holding states without their con-

There is nothing new of'importance to give,

quiet resignation. Dullness is the charac-
teristic bump, so far as phrenological energy
is concerned at this season of the year. : We
shall be glad if our subscribers do not com-
plain. We have 'ad gales 'and storms 'or,
several days; the tides ari' her than they
have been for five ears, anw cannot doubt
that great damage andloss will be sustained
by owners of vessels which are off the coast.

security of their sister States. It is to be re-

no home quarrels and dangers to swell its

checks impiety and promotes adoration. And .

Through bowers built by nature above it;
Let the sahnond-trout sport in its ripple by day,
And darkness at night be its covert.
Let a dear little cottage spring up from be-
A dear little moss-covered bower;
Then the spirits of angels shall watch o'er
To hallow the sacred still hour.
And who would not sigh for a mansion like
Oh where are the castles of yore;

And their proud lords rdice there no more.

We have seen the prospectus of a work
entitled, "KEY TO THE PRINCIPLES OF NA-

by Thomas Jefferson Eddy.
After giving himself a most exquisite puff,
he winds up as follows:-
"As the above systems are entirely ori-
ginal, the author feels himself justified in
presenting them to an enlightened commu-
nity, respectfully soliciting their patronage
to a work that comprises assigned causes,
for'many of the natural phenomena, that
have been looked upon by the whole school
of philosophers as beyond the reach of hu-
man ken to fathom, d that hive slum-
bered in the cradle Q ture's arcana from
the commencement oTtime.
The author flatters himself that many
causes of the striking phenomena which
have been deemed past finding out, will
be satisfactorially explained and developed.
The price of the above work, bound in
sheep, will be, $1,25: in calf, gilt, $1,50.

[From the New York Evening Star.]
During twenty-five years that I have
been directly and indirectly connected with
the public press, I have invariably sustain-
ed the rights, and supported the principles
of the Southern States-have always pro-
tested against any interference with their
constitutional privileges, and decried every
attempt to create excitement, or produce
unhappy difficulties on the Slave question.
Recent events in several parts of the
Southern and Western States, satisfy me,
that there is a fixed determination among
a body of men residing north of the Poto-
mac, to agitate and pursue the discussion
of immediate emancipation, and thus jeopar-
dise the safety of the Union, and the rights,
comforts and happiness of our fellow citi-
zens residing in the Slave States.
.be. iew of affording to those re-
sidin~l1at section of the Union, and
also .1 channel in the North, through
which t an be fully heard in defence
of their p iples, their right, their attach-
ment to our 'happy confederacy, and, in
particular, their sentiments on this impor-
tant and delicate question, I cheerfully
open to them the columns of the EVENING
STAR, in which not only those rights shall
be firmly sustained, but shall be happy to
make the paper the medium of communi-
cation through which 'their sentiments can
be heard, and their wishes made known to
the people of the United States.

-Jb RALITy.-It is with a man's morals
is with his temporal concerns. If he
suffer his business .. get behind hand, he
finds it very difficiit to meet all his en-
gagemerits, and utterly impossible to take
any advantages which are constantly pre-
senting themselves to the economist, who
in room of teing in debt has money to
spare. A few days of relaxation from the
wholesome rules of a moral life, will throw
aus so far back, that in room of having, it is
in our power to make new advances in the
"' noble and glorious work" of moral ac-
quirements, it may consume some time,
and cost no little exertion to retrieve what
was foolishly lost.
This simple hint, should it be put to its
profitable use, Bpay turn to more advantage
than a superficial observer might expect,
for should it iMce any to avoid running
into debt unn sarily, or to exert econo-
myto pay wha'they owe, the advantage
would not be small. And if it should in-
cite any to be on their guard against temp-.
tation, this is better than silver or gold.
BEAUTY.-" The rays of beauty may
,dazzle our eyes for a moment like a solar
beam, but if the mind be not affected, they
fade as the sun declines beneath the west-
ern cloud: and when this fascination, that
ibnce so sweetly captivated our senses has
lost its attractions, we shall find but a faint
impression of what once was lovely re-
maining. But he whose sensibility has
been excited by the charms of intellectual
beauty, whose desires are sincere, pure,
and disinterested, may never fear that the
prospect which hope has painted will be
darkened by the gloomy shades of disap-
pointment and discontent. Even if his ex-
pectation be realized, the unsuccessful lover
has had the consolation of reflecting that
the object of his wishes conferred honor
upon his selection: and the approbation of
an honest conscience will cheer his sorrow
and mitigate his despair."
SLANDER.--It is a poor soul that cannot
bear slander. No decent man can get along
without it-at least none that are actively
engaged in the struggle of business life.--
Have a bad fellow in your employment
and discharge him, he goes round and slan-
ders you-refuse another some very mod-
est boon which he has asked, he goes
round and slanders fyou-let your conduct
be such as to create the envy of another,
he goes round and slanders you. In fine,
as we [said before, we would not give a
cent for a person that is not slandered-it
shows that he is either'a milksop or a fool.
No, no, earn a bad name from a bad fellow,'
jand you can easily do so by correct con-
duct,) it is the only way to prove that you
MORAL REFLECTIONS.-Hope is the sup-
port of the disappointed, the encourager of
the unfortunate, the rest of the weary, and
the visionary friend of all mankind. How
many an unhappy person has been enabled
to support himself in the trying 'moments
of affliction, by the indulgence of a hope,
that the dark hour would not last forever,
but that the time would soon arrive when
he should once more be happy. The young
man in his hopeful day-dreams, see only
in the extended vista of life, the gay, ima-
ges of fancy, and the delusive phantoms of
ambition. Hope adds to the picture friend-
ship's visionary form, and love's glowing
colors. Time himself can scarcely weaken
the hues and diminish the objects raised
by hope, till death shuts the scene.
ORIGINAL ENOUGH.-The Belfast Jour-
nal says, a man in that town lately let a
farm to an Irishman "at the halves."-
When a calf on the farm had arrived at a
marketable age, the landlord sent his boy
to get half the calf-the tenant went to the
barn and caught the animal, cut off his
head and tail with the axe ,then taking a
string and measuring leng'wise, found
the exact centre of the trunk, and cut it in
two, the boy looked on with astonishment
at the butchery, and when told "to take
his half," observed that his father always
skined a calf before he cut it up,"-" Ah,
an faith" says Pat, tell yer father that he
must pale it as he ates it."
An honest Welchman was one day giv-
ing an account of a wonderful Echo in
Old North Wales, which would repeat
eleven words distinctly-O, said an Irish-
man in company, that is nothing to what
we have in Ireland. Often would I go out
in a bright morning, and just say, "good
morning, madam Echo!" and it would
ailswer me with "And good morning to
you, Mr. Patrick Blake, how do you find
yourself this morning ?"
DYING CONSOLATION.-" I shall be hap-
py," said the expiring husband to his wife,
who was weeping most dutifully by the
led side, "if you will. only promise not to
marry that object of my unceasing jeal-
ousy, your cousin Charles." Make your-
self quite easy, love," said the expectant
widow, "I am engaged to his brother."
THE KING'S EVIL.-A student of medi-
cine from Boston, while attending lectures
in London, observed that "the king's evil
had been hut utle known in the United
States since the Retvolution.."
Knowledge, planted by the hand of af-
fection in the hallowed sanctuary of home,
is wont to take deeper root than "seed
sown by the way side." Parents who
write with their own pencils, lines of'hea-
ven upon the fresh' tables of their chil-
dren's hearts, who trust not to the hand of
hirelings, their first, holiest, most indelible
impressions, will usually find less than
others to blot out when the scroll is finish-
ed, and to maourn for when they read it in
AN IRISHMAN'S REPLY.-Lord St. John
being some time ago in want of a servant,
an Irishman offered his service, but being
asked what countryman he was, answered
an Englishman.-" Where was you born ?"
said his lordship. "In Ireland an' plaze
your worship," said the man. How then
can you be an Englishman ?" said his
lordship. "My loid," replied the man,
" sposen I was born in a stable, that's no
razen I should be a horse."
A FLAT.-An impertinent fop, a passen-
ger on board the steamboat De Witt Clin-
ton, the other day, a few miles below Al-
bany, observed a young lady looking very
attentively at the shallows near the boat,
and took the liberty of thus addressing her
-" Miss, dfoyou see the flats ?" She gave
him a glance that would have petrified a
man of sense, and turning on her heel,
archly replied, "I see one flat, sir !"
A SWEET TEMPER.-A gentleman, when
asked his opinion of a certain critic, a few
days ago, gave it in the following terms:
"Wh4y, he is a perfect crab apple-a
decoction of verjuce-the quintessence of
acerbity. If I wished to convert the
Thames into lemonade, I should pitch him
A certain lawyer had been laboring for
his client in a long-winded speech, but the
verdict was found against him-"Zounds!"
exclaimed he, I believe the jury have
been inoculated for stupidity." "That
may be," said the opponent, but you Mr.
Sargeant, seem to have had it in the natur-
A lad having been very positive on some
subject with his school-fellow, the latter
aid, You are very dogmatic." Where-
upon the former, putting his arms akimbo,
and looking very fiercely, replied, Sir, I
am do more of a dog than you are."
A FALSE REPORT.-When Mr. Alexan-
der Gun was dismissed from the Customs
of Edinburgh, the entry made against his
name in the books was "A Gun discharg-
ed for making a false report."
WoMAN's CONFIDENCE.-There is some-
thing so beautifully confiding in the natural
feelings of a woman's heart that she will

THE Sunday Morning News has now been

months, and if any criterion can be drawn
from the number of its patrons and subscrib-

and the principles it has been guided by in
its management, have been approved and
sanctioned. As a consequence of its increas-
ed circulation, its advertising friends have
come forward in large numbers; and,as it may
now be considered fairly afloat, and rising on
the tide of public favor, it affords an admira-
ble vehicle for the dissemination of such in-

popular approbation, and a sign of the attrac-

Under these favorable circumstances the
Sunday Morning New.s will proceed with re-
doubled confidence and energy, in laboring
to gratify the curiosity and taste of the pub-
lic, in all the various items of intelligence
which form the staple of a weekly journal.-
The man of business will be sure ,to find
therein the most recent and correct informa-
tion upon the state of the foreign and domes-
tic markets, the current of business, the arri-
val of vessels, and every thing connected
with mercantile affairs; the politician will
meet with a faithful abstract of the move-
ments of parties, with ,legislative proceedings
here, together with details of the political
operations on the continent of Europe, and
every other quarter of the globe: the lover of
varied and diversified reading will find the.
means of gratifying his appetite as copiously
supplied as/possible; while the admirers of
literature will be sure to discover something
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 proprie-
tor, as it has been and will continue to be his
duty as well as his desire, shall be to unite
in its columns in well arranged and digested
order, all that is sound and elegant in litera-
ture, amusing in art, instructive in the scien-
ces, and necessary for a correct appreciation
of passing events.
The popularity now enjoyed by this journal,
will be the best guarantee for a careful adhe-
rence to the meansby which it was acquired;
and the patronage hitherto extended towards
it, the most flattering encouragement to -a
perseverance in the same course.

GREAT NATIONAL WORK.
Of useful and Entertaining Knowledge, to be il-
lustrated by numerous Engravings. ; ,..
BY THE BOSTON BE WICK COMP.ANY.
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 Authors, to fur-
nish, from all parts of the Union, drawings
and illustrations of every subject of interest,
which the publishers confidently believe will
enable them to issue a work honorable to its
title and acceptable to the American People.
The American Magazine is published
monthly-each number containing between
forty and fifty imperial octavo pages, at Two
DOLLARS per annum, payable in advance.
It comprises-Portraits and Biographical
Sketches of distinguished AmerieAns; Vie.ws-
of Public Buildings, Monuments, and im-
provements; Landscape scenery-the bound-
less variety and beauty of which, in this
country, will form an unceasing source of in-
struction and gratification; Engravings and
descriptions of the character, habits, &c. of
Birds, Beasts, Fishes, and Insects, together
with every subject connected with the Geo-
graphy, history, Natural and Artificial re-
sources of ihe country, illustrated in arfamiliar
and popular manner.

TO THE PUBLIC.
THE SUBSCRIBER, having purchased
The Southern Jgriculturalist 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. Legate from its
cotmmencement, in the year 1S28, and he is
thus practically acquainted with the node in
which it should be conducted. Its publica-
tion will be continued on the same terms and
in the sarae 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 lu4handry, but also experi-
mental efforts in A Iulture and Horticul-
ture, he invites free and unrestricted commu-
facts orliso ted experiments are too trivial to
be communicated. All systematic knowl-
edge is but dhe aggregate of humble particu-
lars; and science, in every department, is
brought, to perfection, not through the instru-
mentality ofa single exrraordinary 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 plantr. witt is sysOtrnStic ih
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 fames a literary-, lople,
but it was also vindicafiig 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 methods of
Husbandry, but also of facts relating to our
system of Slavery. -The subijectdof the deci-
phine, the treatment, the ehar.acters our
Slaves, are fairly suited i and
constitute topics as interest In'g tant
as any which can engage eWiTjhe wn at-
tention or the attention of tbd)e (ad, who
feel a legitimate interest in o cerns.
The subscriber begs leave ,ei, conclusion,
to remark, that if he had notk'undertaken to
continue the publication of this~Periodical, it,
most probably,-would have been 'either re-
moved from our city, or been suspended.
Whetherit will be in his power to: continue it,
will depend not only on the Pecuniary but
the Literary Contributions of Southern Plan-
ters. He confidently now leaves this matter
in their hands, feeling a full assurance that
there is wanting on the part of our Planters,
neither the liberality nor mental energies ne-
cessary to sustain the Southern Agriculturist.
