BY MRS. SIGOURNEY.
I came, but she was gone.
There lay her lute,
Just as she touch'd it last, at the soft hour
Of summer twilight, when the woodbine cups
Filling with deeper fragrance, fondly press'd
Through the rais'd casement, uttering ten-
der thanks 4
To her who train'd them. On her favorite
Still lay her work-box open, and the book
That last she read, and careless near its page
A note, whose cover her slightpen had trac'd
With lines unconscious, while her lover spake
That dialect which brings forgetfulness
Of all beside. It was the pleasant home
Where from her childhood she had been the
Of hope and joy.
I came, and she was gone.
But this I knew, for I remembered well
Her parting look, when from the altar led,
AritLh silvery veil, but slightly-ow-ept asde,
How the young rose leaf deepened on her
And on her brow a solemn beauty sat,
Like one who gives a priceless gift away.
And there was silence. Mid that stranger
Even' strangers, and the hard of heart, did
Their breath supprest, to see the mother's lip
Turn ghastly pale, and the tall stately sire
Bow with a secret sorrow, as he gave
His darling to an untried guardianship,
And to a far-off clime. Perchance his thought
Travers'd the moss-grown prairies, and the
Of the cold lakes,-or those o'erhanging cliffs
And mighty mountain tops, that rose to bar
Her long-rear'd mansion from the anxious eye
Of kindred and of friend.'
Even triflers felt
How strong and beautiful is woman's love,
That, taking in its hand the joys of home,
The tenderest melodies of tuneful years,
Yea, and its own life also, lays them all
Meek and unblenching on a mortal's breast,
Reserving nought, save that unspoken hope
Which hath its root in Goxn.
Mock not with mirth
A scene like this,-ye laughter-loving ones,
Hence with the hackney'djest! The dancer's
What doth it here ?
Joy, serious and sublime,
Such as doth nerve the energies of prayer,
Should swell the bosom, when a maiden's
Fresh from its young flower-gathering, gird-
That harness, which the minister of death
Alone unlooseth,-and whose power doth aid,
Or mar, the journey of the soul to Heaven.
There is a jewel thatno Indian mine can buy,
No chemic art can counterfeit,
It makes men rich in greatest poverty,
Makes water wine, turut wooden cups to gold,
The homely whistle to s*eet muse's strain;
Seldom it comes, to few from Heaven sent,

LADY ANN'S BRIDAL.
.... ./ Tale of the Two Churches.
BY MISS AGNES STRICKLAND.
In one of the western counties of Eng
y land is situated the sequestered and beauti
ful valley of Deendale. It /is, in sooth,
s spot of peculiar loveliness, et so lonel.
e withal, that When the euriou traveller be
d holds, in the depths of itsalnjost untroddei
solitudes, two noble Gothic' churches, ris
- ing in rival grandeur upon pis view, he is
- at first, tempted to believe tiat objects ar
multiplied to him by ,m~I. deception o
vision. Having satisfiJi hi ietfo'dithe re
ality of' what he soes ie 'ill the next place
infers the poverty of the inhabitants, bypb
serving that there are no altar or coffin
shaped tombs, or raised slabs, and very fev

distinguishment of upright head and foo
stones; and calculates the scanminess of the
population from the small number of briar
bound turfy mounds, which denote the las
abode of the lowly peasant in the burying.
ground of either church, and muses why
and by what means, two such edifices car
have been erected, in a place which could
scarcely have required a church of halfth(
dimensions df either of these solemn temn
ples, both of which are so rich in the elab-
orate ornaments of the florid Gothic ar-
chitecture, that they must have cost, in
workmen's wages alone, a sum sufficient
to startle the wealthiest and most liberal-
minded select vestry in London. The mar-
vel, however, is lessened by the explana-
nation afforded by the personage who per-
forms the important offices of parish clerk
and sexton, in one or other of these twin
churches, who, haply observing a stranger
employed in exploring the localities of the
spot, issues from his domicile with a pon-
derous key,in his hands, and, inspired with
silver hopes, volunteers to admit "his hon-
or" into that church of which he considers
himself the peculiar guardian.
His services accepted, he points to a low
ivy-grown wall which separates the two
burying-grounds, and informs the visitor
that it is the line of demarcation between
the two parishes which meet on that spot,
neither of which could boast of a church
till-the days of the third Ed-ward, in whose
time, saith that venerable gossip Tradition,
two wealthy co-heiresses, of one parish, un-
luckily placed their affections on the lord
of the manor of the next, who, being of a
remarkably grateful temper, regretted that
we could not marry them both; but, as the
claims of both to his regard were so equal
that he found some difficulty in deciding
upon which of the fair spinsters to fix his
choice, he left them to settle that point be-
tween themselves. Now, as that was a
matter on which it was utterly impossible
that they should ever agree, they had re-
course to the expedient of casting lots for
the object of their equal affection, when
the youngest, sister, throwing the ,highest
number, became his wife, and the elder,
renouncing the world, buried her disap-
pointed hopes in a convent, arid devoted
her wealth to the erection of the first-built
church, which she dedicated to her pat-
roness St. Agnes. The married sister, how-
ever, became a widow shortly after her
marriage, which she attributed to the wrath
of Heaven at the crime she bhad committed,
in obtaining the advantage over her sister
through the use offalse dice; and she con-
fessed the fraud to her spiritual director,
who enjoined her to atone ibr it Iby imitat-
ing the example of her pious sister, and
building a church also. The penitent wid-
ow complied, and the second church was
erected, dedicated to St. Maiy. .:
After this legendary p)refliace, 1j sSer
Ralph Digwell, or Peter Pitrhpipe, viich-
ever it chances to be, introduces the fiter
into the holy pile, which d emphlatifically
styles his church, and pl)oints.out th-torntr

you gather that a nobleman's family is res-

a challenges him to the proof, that the gen
- tleman may judge for himself." But frorn

the present Earl FitA-Aymer entertains
such a horror of every thing that can re-
mind him of death, as to preclude all

most probably, as insensible of the depre-
dations that have been committedd upon
. their funeral finery, as to those that will,
undoubtedly, be perpetrated upon his own,
. provided the same sly knave keeps the key
of his domus ultima.
It happened one evening hat the rival sex-
tons met at a little wicket-gate which af-
fords a means of communication between
their respective church-,ards, and mutual-
ly drew up for a gossip; for, though they ne-
ver talked without quarrelling, yet they al-
ways made a point of conversing whenev-
er they did meet. "1Out of the fullness of
the heart the mouth speaketh," said the
proverb, and Master Digwell accosted Pe-
ter Pitchpipe as follows:
"I reckon our church will boast a gran-
der bridal to-morrow than poor St. Agnes
ever witnessed, since the disappointed old
maid, who built it, laid the tbundation-
stone. Somebody, who shall be nameless,
would like to pocket my fee on the occa-
"Neighbor Digwell," returned Pitchpipe,
"I don't teach the young ones their cate-
chism every Sunday, without bearing in
mind the tenth commandment; and, to
tell you a bit of my mind, I would not give
thee half-a-crown for thy fees to-morrow."

lfrom a bride in ny lile, if she were ev.r

eye upon the bridegroom."
At Fitz-Aymer Castle, the subject ofmy
lady Anne's bridal formed matter of stiU
more angry discussion than it had done
between the rival sextons; and report said,d
that the young lady' had wept, entreated,]
and finally knelt at the feet of the obdurate,
Earl, her father, in a vain attempt to pre-
vail upon him to excuse her from these ab-
horrent nuptials. Much more was said u
3, on the occasion than was trie; for never
- was a young lady less lachrymose than La-
3, dy Anne. She was, in spoth, a lass of spir-
- it, and had never fainted, nor been afflicted
h with a single hysteric fit in all her life: yet
y awful were the swoonings and hysterics
- that were reported of her; not to speak of
i wringing of hands and rending of hair, be-
s sides tears too manifold to record. But
f these were things of course, and the natu-
ral consequences of her dislike to the ma-
, ture spouse her papa had provided for her.
t All sorts and conditions of the people, in'
- the two parisP --L i~ a 't "-
sionate, in their sympathy for her, and in-
, dignation against her father 'and the. bride-
t groom elect. The village mind was in a
state of the highest excitation, respecting
I the nuptials of the much pitied Lady Anne,
when the day that was appointed for their
solemnization arrived; and, as the morning
. was uncommonly fine, the church yard of
St. Mary, Deepdale, was thronged with all
t the indignant and sight-loving inhabitants
i of the two parishes. The women forsook
the houses, the men the fields; the hay
was left to turn itself by the one, and the
pots to boil, or cool, at their own discretion
by the other. No one could attend to his
own concerns for thinking of those of my
Lady Anne, and every one was in the very
height of discussing them, when the bridal
procession drove up; and they half forgot
their commiseration for her in the extrav-
agant delight and wonder with which they
surveyed the long train of showery equi-
pages, with so much grandly dressed folks
within, and still finer dressed servants with-
out with white favors in their gold and sil-
ver laced hats. There were abundance of
lauk-a-daisies, look' there !" from the wo-
men,, and stars o' mine," from the men,"
and my eyes!" from the boys and girls,
as each carriage set down its noble freight,
and drove off to make way for another,
and another, and another after that, till the
good people firmly believed that all
the lords and ladies in England, save and
except old my Lord Deepdale, and young
my Lord Beauchamp, and his son, were
come to my Lady Anne's wedding. Nev-
er had been seen in that church yard such
a, waving of ostrich and marabout plum-
age, and fluttering of white lace veils, as
was exhibited that morning by the six
young and noble bridemaids. As for the
bride herself, she was, dressed much- like
other brides of her rank and expectations,
in an orthodox quantity of white satin and
Brussels lace. She wore no bonnet; and
her rich profusion of sunny tresses, were
wreathed with orange blossoms, and parti-
ally shaded with a long veil, of the most
superb lace. She was in form petite, but
perfectly sylph-like, and sweetly pretty.-
She looked a little pale or so, but, to the
surprise of every one, shed'no tears. In
fact, she appeared to have made up her
mind to go through the business with firm-
ness, in compliance with the exordiums of
her lady mother, who, before she left the
carriage, had pathetically entreated her
"not to expose herself, by any public man-
"ilgtation of her sentiments towards her fu-
-Lady A ne was an only child, and, of
coulaq, a spoiled child: she had early
known yd felt her own importance, and
had bees acc :stomed from her very cradle
to have. ter own way in every thing. It
was onr in this most important action of
her lifthat she had received a serious con-
tradic a. But in this, the Earl, her fath-
er, resolutely, and somewhat harshly, en-
forced his paternal authority; and, in con-
teste o4this kind, the weaker party is gen.
eraly obliged to yield to the will of the
stronger. It was, however, plain to all,
t-t' it was no meek, lamb-like sacrifice that
thry were leading so gaily decked out to
the altar: there was a self-willed petulance
in her air, and a scornful spirit in her eye,
that made the Marquis shrink, and look
like the fool he was, whenever he encoun-
tered its disdainful glance; and there was
ten eloquence in the manner in which I
phe trampled the beautiful flowers that
(were strewn'before her. It was one of the
ways in which the little vixen vented her 1
mngry displeasure at the pomps and vani-
ies prepared in honor of the scene in which
she was to be the reluctant prima donna.- D
The Earl, her father, was evidently morti-
-d and exasperated with her; and there l
s something approaching to brutality in (
rough manner in which he seized her s
)ny white-gloved hand, and drew it thro' t
his amtn, to lead her into the church. There t
was answering disdain in the indignant v
Flash of her bright blue eye, and the sud- s
den suffusion of the pale cheek with glow- I
4Ang crimson; also, there was a ,certain n
slight, but decidedly rebellious, motion of s
the shoulders, and a retrograde step, with a
thbe pretty little foot of the bride, as though r
she would have resisted crossing the i
threshold of the church. But the resolute ]
Earl drew her forcibly forward-I am per- i
Ouaded that it would have given him posi-
tive pleasure to beset the provoking young
slut; but there is no managing family mat-
ters in public, and she permitted him to
lead her up to the altar without any further
show of resistance. The Marquis took his
proper place by her side,-the minister
opened his book. The bridemaids looked
as interesting as they could, and put all the
blushes they could command upon imme-
diate service. The bridemen looked quiz-
zical, the Earl authoritative, the Countess
apprehensive, the bridegroom foolish, and
the bride sullen,. No oUne a'vieed per-
1ei, .1L e m.
upon the occasion ; and he was (in his own
opinion, at least) the most important per-.
son present, and certainly the most to be
envied, as he stood in all the glories of a
bran new black coat, purchased upon the
speculation of the noble bridegroom's an-
ticipated donation, holding a huge open
prayer-book, and literally panting to pro-
nounce the final amen, which he always
considered the most consequential word in
the service of matrimony. There was a
dead hush in the church ; for the bride-
groom had' already signified his assent, in
answer to that important question, "Wilt
thou have this woman for thy wedded
wife?" and the minister, turning to the
bride, said, though rather in a flattering
tone (for, he was well aware of the nature
of her sentiments towards the bridegroom,)
" Wilt thou have this man for thy wedded
'husband ?" expecting hesitation, or a flood
of tears, in reply, if not obstinate silence.-
Lady Anne, however, was not of the cry-
ing sort: she seldom hesitated upon any
point, and she always spoke her mind; so
she. boldly and decidedly answered, I
will not," in so loud a tone that the resolute
negative resounded through the church;
then turning quickly to the crest-fallen
bridegroom, she said, "I told you so before,
my lord; and now 1 hope you will believe
that I am in earnest."
Lady Anne, I blush for the improprie-
ty of your conduct!" said the Countess;
" and I wonder you are not ashamed of the
manner in which you have exposed your-
self, by. putting this public insult upon the
Marquis of Greystock.
Had the Marquis of Greystock pos-
sessed the common feelings, or the honor-
able delicacy, of a gentleman, mamma, he
would have spared me the trouble of com-
ing hither, and myself the mortification of
a public refusal," returned Lady Anne.
Come, come, madam! 1 am not to be
thus trifled with," said the Earl sternly;
"and I insist upon your fulfilling your en-
gagement with the Marquis."
"I never entered into an engagement
with him," said Lady Anne pouting.
"But I have for you, Lady Anne."
Oh! true, papa; but that is quite anoth-
And I tell you, madame, that you shall
marry the Marquis," said the Earl, bend-
ing his brows most awfully upon the fair
"lmpossible,papn; for you see the church
very properly considers the lady's consent
an indispensable part of the marriage cer-
emony; and, as I am a woman of consci-
ence, I find it impossible to answer in the.
affirmative, when I am asked by the minis-
ter if I will have a man I hate fobr my wed-
"Confound your conscience!" retorted
the Earl furiously.
Here, the mortified Marquis drew the
Earl aside, to propose some plan for his
private consideration; the Countess join-
ed herself to the council. Every one in
the church had been thrown into utter con
sternation, by the unexpected freak of my
Lady Anne. The parson looked down
upon his book in dismay; Ralph Digwell
groaned in spirit at the perversity of the
bride, and, like squire Richard, in Van-
burgh s Comedy, "thought he was not too
big to be whipped." The bridemaids tit-
tered; the bridemen elevated their eye-
brows and stared. The elders of the bride's
family were ashamed to look the bride-
groom's friends in the face, after the insult
they had received in the person of the Mar-
quis, for their wayward young relation, for
which they began to offer apologies in the
most doleful tone imaginable.
But what did the bride meantime ? Tru-
y, the bride did the wisest thing that she
could do, under such circumstances; for
she fairly walked out of the church, thro'
the door opposite to that by which she en-
tered it; and, exerting all the speed with
which youth and love could inspire her,
she hurried through the church yard, and
passing through the wicket gate of com-.
munication, entered that adjoining, where
she was met, and rapturously greeted, by
in elegant young man, who, it is scarcely
necessary to explain, was no other than her
favored lover, the Viscount Beauchamp.-
By him she was immediately conducted
nto the church of St. Agnes, where also a
white-robed priest stood in readiness at the
altar, book in hand, seconded by -Ralph
Digwell's rival, Peter Pitcbpipe. There,
too, were assembled the fair sisters of the
Viscount, prepared to officiate as bride-
maids, and his younger brother, who oblig-
ingly undertook to give away the bride.-
No explanation was necessary; for it was
all a preconcerted plan, arranged through
the agency of Lucy Pitchpipe, the parish
clerk's daughter, who filled the post of
waiting-maid to Lady Anne.
No time was consumed in idle compli-
ments; and, without so much as pausing
for the bride to recover her breath, the
minister commenced the marriage service,
in which he used such audible despatch,
that the enraged father and rejected bride-
groom only entered the church in time to
hear Lady Anne pronounce as decided an
"1 forbid the marriage Proceed at your
peril," vociferated the Earl, in a voice of
I- was of age yesterday," said the half
wedded bride, by way of parenthasis to the
solemn vow of oLediencep which. in defi-
ance of the paternal interdict, she persisted
"I shall disinherit you," exclaimed the
"With all my worldly goods I thee en-
dow," pursued the lover bridegroom, with
a look of unutterable tenderness: and the
'Earl had the mortification of witnessing the
conclusion of the spousal rites. The Mar-
quis, seeing no reason for his doing the
same, flung himself into the elegant travell-
ing carriage which he had provided for a
very different occasion, and shouted to the
post-lads to take the white and silver cock-
ades out of their hats, and drive off. Ralph
Digwell stood looking after him, with a
rueful countenance; while the melancholy
conviction, "no hopes of golded fees to-
day," smote upon his heart, and he began
to cast about in his mind how his new
black coat was to be paid, for, there beitg,
no present prospect of a death in his pat-
ron's family; and he reflected with a bitter
pang of envy, upon the superior good. for-
tune of his rival, Peter Pitchpipe.
With respect to the proceedings of the
higher powers on this extraordinary busi-,
ness, be it known, that the Earl of 'itz-
Aymer talked loudly and angrily; and the
bride, whq knew her cue, listened patient-
ly till all his sayings were exhausted. She
was then all duty and submission. The
bridegroom was as conciliatory as the hus-
band of an heiress ought to be. The lady
mother temporised, as lady mothers gene-
rally do on such occasions, and at length
mollified the wrath of her offended lord,
by reminding him of the admirable geo-
graphical situation of the estates of Lord
Deepdale and himself, for a ;marriage be-
tween their heirs. He acknowledged the
propriety of the remark; and the thought
struck him, at the same moment, that, con-
sidering the resolute temper of Lady Anne,-
it was very well that she had not contract-
ed an alliance which offered no such local
advantages; and, as the Earl of Deepdale,
who was in every respect his equal, offer-
ed to make all proper settlements upon her,
he at length determined to shake hands
with his noble neighbor, and bestowed a
sort of sulky benediction on the newly
wedded pair, which he qualified with an
intimation that he should expect them to
proceed to the continent, and reside there
for a twelvemonth at least,as his friend the
Marquis of Greystock would consider him-
self very dishonorably treated if he were to
be publicly reconciled to them before that
period,. The happy pair readily agreed to
this arrangement; but the term of their
banishment was very considerably shorten-
ed by the marriage of the Marquis of Grey-
stock, who, in a fit ofbachelor desperation,
took to wife his chaplain's pretty sister,
who made him one of the happiest elderly
gentleman in the peerage, and perfectly
consoled him for the affront he had receiv-
ed from Lady Anne Fitz-Aymer.
ZEKEL BIGELOW, in a letter to the edi-
tor of the Downing Gazette, on the best
method of abolishing slavery, sums up the
whole matter very briefly. If any man,"
says Zekel, wants my shirt, and I chuse
to sell it to him, it's a bargain; but if he
aint ready to pay me a fair price for it, then
1 say he aint got no right to discuss the
matter, particularly if the natur of the cas9
is such as to deprive me of my shirt, with-
out compensating at all." And this is his
Now, then, if )he Abolition folks wants
-to free a nigger, they must be, ready to pay
for him, and something like this plan might
work well. Let the southern states fix a
fair price for a nigger, and form a commit-
tee to take charge of the matter, and when
an abolition man is so bran full of philan-
thropy that he can't find work enufat home
for it, let him 'send the amount of the fixed
value of a nigger to this- committee south,
and simply say, Gentlemen, enclosed is
$-; please send me a nigger."

Britain comprise more than one-sixth part
of the whole population! In the United

British Revenua Budget.-By the state-
ment of the Chancellor of Exchequer, Mr.
Rice, it appears that the surplus revenue
of Great Britain for the year ending July
5th, 1835, over expenditure amounts to
1,205,000. From that date to July next
year, it is estimated at 835,000. Out of
this 700,000 may be required for the
West India loan, leaving a surplus of about
only 150,000. :The Liverpool Journal
thinks the people will be dissatisfied with
Mr. Rice's report on the budget. The ed-
itor avers that with proper economy in this
time of peace, in the enormous burthens of
the army and navy, the retrenchment of
the extravagant expenditures in the church
and civil establishments and in the pension
list, three millions sterling might easily be
saved to the country.

WAR AT LAST.--It appears by the
Cleveland papers received this mo'-niii ,
that the hot bloods of Michigan and O-hio
have actually succeeded in getting tip'a
real Battle-not being disposed to let 'thdir
blustering and bravado go for nothing.,
The bulletin account-of the action, oil
the part of the Ohioans, though not ofticinai
sets forth as follows:-On the morning-of
the 15th ult. the Sheriff of Monroe co'utyvt
accompanied by a body of armed meni'
made a descent upon the village of Toled
and'captured the Sheriff of Lucas county
whom they carried off. The party re-a -
-peared in the course of the day, in seared
of stch Judges and Justices as were act
ing under the laws of Ohio ; but did n
succeed in gettitig hold of them, as the ci-
izens of Toledo had armed themselves f
battle, and made such stout resistance, th
after the exchange of about one, hundre
shots, the invading party fled. They wern
hotly pursued, but being on horseback
weire not overtaken.
There is one feature in all this splendid
affair, which is worthy of all admiration
It is the singularly bloodless sesult of the
victory-none being killed, and only one
person injured by a contusion.
The bulletin further adds,-that the

declared like "Ancient Pstol," that "All

intimated an intention of returning on the
night after the conflict, :or the. purpose of

vices left. The word will therefore rest
in suspense, until thestory of that night's
doings shall be forthcoming.

FACTS AND OBSERVATIONS RELATIVE
TO THE' CULTURE OF SILK.-Silk Manu-
facturers.-The first steps in the manufac-
ture of silk are within the farmer's imme-
diate department, viz: to sow the mulber-
ry seed, and rear the young trees; and after
two years of attendance the raising of silk
may commence in good earnest; and will
become a pleasant and healthy business for
children and young women. This rich
crop will require but two month's care to
secure it, and when the buisfiess shall flour-
ish on-r-large scale, whichh we hope will
eru lung take place, the raising of theimul-
berry trees, fiedingi the silk worms, and
the manufacturing cfthe cocoons will be
considered as mucn a part of good hus-
bandry, as the rearing of neat cattle, sheep,
&c. Silk worms vill become a part of a
farmer's stock, and :ocoons his produce as.
commonly sent to the market as butter,
cheese, &c. The vinding and reeling of
cocoons may or mty not be performed in
the family, and by the fire side, as the cul-
tivator's help or circumstances may admit;
but the cocoons will be as much cash arti-
cles as beef, corn or cattle.
Great advantages will accrue to the
younger members of farmer's families from
silk culture. F trmer's daughters in limit-
ed circumstancES, but of respectable con-
nexions may fine a profitable and pleasant
employment at home, instead of being com-
pelled by penury to seek an asylum fi'om
want in cotton factories, or the kitchens of
their more wealthy neighbors. Poor peo-
ple may find profitable employment, rich
people innocent and pleasant amusement
in the different branches of the same occu-
pation. Some of the processes necessary.
for converting mulberry leaves into the
multifarious manufactures in which silk'
forms the whole or any important point,
may be performed bj a child or an idiot.-
Other manipulations connected with the
same business require consummate skill,
and long practice to ensure their proper
performance. Ignorance of an art can be
no apology for idleness, when knowledge
is not necessary for its prosecution; and
every human being'of every grade an in-
tellect, or strength, mental or corporeal
power, if .nt, an infant, insane, or bed-rid-
den, may find something connected with
silk culture adapted to his or her faculties,
and calculated to furnish useful employ-
The mechanical part of reeling silk in
France and Italy is performed entirely by
women. There are in those countries
what are called great and small filatures.-
The lbrm-?r are large establishments inl
which lrot 50 to 500 reels are at work;
the wvoinen employed there are 'under",tlie
superintendence ofta director. who is.4ho-
roughly acquh-ted with the mechanical,
as well as t1.1-mercantjie part of tlieuisi-
nest. These directors are brought up to
the~ professfon... Th women employed in
the'-e large filaturs a're wel!. paild,'aindl
generally remain .iere till the.epid opJheir
days. The sma 'or as we slio., call
them domcslic: filatures, are carried on in
families by lhrmer's wives and d hters,
who work from one to five reels$'ithi co-
coons of thtnir wn. raising, or those they
purchase ofthefr neighbors, by which they
make a handsoinegicopjie at the end oft'the
year. These wome'niin general have pre-
served the art in the families from enera-
tion to generation. The silk tr"i r.esic
reels is not as perfect as that" which es
from the large tilatures. 1 sells howa
and the mniantitheturers know how to6 '
ploy it. It iinit lie added, that the Frenchl
and Italian tenmale reelers perform their
work mechanically, and are, hi other re-
spects grossly ignorant; few of them, if
any knowing how to read and write. Our
American wvomPan vilprove Themselves
far superior in every et a --d-
mestic filatures wvill- proftic:ie perfect silk,
because they \wiil have receivd instruc-
tion through'l their great grand mothers,
before the art was inprtoved as it is now.
In this country there should be both,
great and small or- domestic.-filatures ; t'.e
former will be the depositoriies.;of all the
improvements in the art; their latter will
contribute to the use'of families, and there
is no dangeer of there beingan excess of the
"article in the marEket. There.must be file
tures of all sizes ,a'd dimensions, accpr
ing to the means of those who undertal
them. Full and free com tion can aloi
ensure success. .... -

PROFITS OF THE MULBERRY.-Though
it would seem probable that almost any
farmer who has 100 acres or 'more, if he
understood the subject, and was duly in-
formed as to the profits of cultivating silk,
would appropriate at least three acres to it.
I will confine my calculation on the profits
of a single acre, which the farmer can al-
ways extend or contract to suit his own
A number of calculations have been given
othe public, by different persons, all found-
ed on experience, and probably all true.
But as they have been made on different
soils, and no doubt with different manage-
ment and different degrees of skill and
care, it is naturally to' be expected they all
differ. Probably the mean between them
may be relied on as a fair average result,

has given a statement from two acres,
which divided will .give the following for

Mr. Fitch, who is. cited as authority by
the Secretary of the Treasury, calculates
40 pounds of4k ,to an ac'e, and Mr. Storrs
60 pounds. i
According to the calculation 6f Mr. Par-
mentier, an acre will pay on an average of
20 years $205,62, and $490 a year, after-
Mr. Fitch's statement allowing the silk
to be worth 4 dollars per pound, would
yield a gross amount of $160, and that of
Mr. Storrs $240. Mr. Storrs has had
much experience and probably his estimate
may be relied on as the average ; though
in a better soil some one may have gone
far beyond it.-[Silkworm.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 15.
The summer is now past and we may safe-
ly speak of the degree of health which has
prevailed in this portion of Florida. Enter-
taining, as most Northerners do, incorrect
views and prejudices, particularly with regard
to the healthiness of this portion of our coun,-
try, they will doubtless be surprised at a
statement of facts, so much at variance with
their pre-conceived "notions." No opinion is
more erroneous than that this part ofthe Ter-
ritory is unhealthy. From what we have
heard of years previous, and what we have
witnessed the year past, we unhesitatingly
pronounce this to be as healthy as any por-
tion of our country. Since last April, there
have been but five deaths among the whites
(only one of fever) on the whole line of the
river, extending from its mouth seventy'
miles into the interior,-- E--oatian&af-'coa.untry.
sparsely inhabited, it is true, yet embracing
beside Jacksonville, the village of Mandarin,
several settlements at various distances, and
plantations settled along the whole distance
from a quarter, to two miles apart. There
have been very few cases of sickness of any
kind, and taose arose chiefly from inatten-
tion and exposure. When it is considered,
that the summer is the period of disease, if
any prevail, we think we may safely chal-
lenge a comparison, in point of health, with
any section of the Union embracing the same
number of inhabitants. We are not aware
that any disease prevails among the residents
during the cooler months, scarcely winter
One reason why the southern cities are
generally considered more sickly than- those
of the North,, i, that the sickness is mostly
confined to twc or three months of the year,
and is limited to two or three diseases. While
at the North, every month, and every day of
the month, they are subject to the attacks of
disease, and every month brings it in some
new form. Like a defeated but persevering
.enemy, some nuew mode of attack upon the
citadel of life is 'assumed. There during the
dropping of every sand, a person may fall by
<%e "-ytlhe of time." While he walks to-
day,,ibuoyed with ardor and hope, hideous
con0iKption mp.y have commenced its dep-
_tradations, working under the deceitful colors
of the hectic glow."
We observe by the northern papers, that
at Liverpool the price of cotton has fallen. It
is presumed to have arisen from a concert
amadng the spinners, to use the cotton on
hand, and. 1.y not entering the market, to
lessen the price. T9e consumption and pro-
duction are now so nearly equal, that, while
peace re-.ain, we cannot expect a great re-
duction the price to be more than tempo-
rary. r the recent report of the consump-
.t*ion4f this article in England, its increase is
*und.to have been great. In 1833 the amount
consumed was 284,460,000 lbs.; in 1834, 297,-
000,000 lbs.; and in '1835, 320,000,000 lbs.;
showing an increase of 12,540,000 lbs. for
the first year, and 23,000,000 lbs for the next.
If we take into consideration the increase
consumption in our own country, we may
safely fix the increase annually at 16,000,00(
year, it is about 385,000,.
000lbs.; ma Rrease of about
12,940,000 1"s. Frf 'is, it would appear,
that the increased production in this country,
falls considerable short of the increased con-
sumption in those countries where the de-
mand is the greatest. The'increased produc-
tion in Egypt, Greece,'and other cotton grow-
ing countries may be fairly set off against the
increased demand in other countries which
have been omitted in our estimate. From
this view, we cannot fear a great reduction
with the above.
"EGYPT.-The produce of cotton has this
year amounted to 25,000 quintals. The ave-
rage price at which it has been sold being 25
dollars, the pasha has thus realized the sum
of 6,250,000 Spanish dollars."
The New York cotton riarket is represent-
ed as being very dulli on the 26th ult. The
sales from the 19th to 26th, were only 1,000
bales at a decline of.l-2 to 1 cent from vre-
vious rates The sales were 450 Uplands,
16 1-2 to 18 1-2c ; 350 Alabamas at 161-4 to
to 20 1-2c, and 200 Floridas, 16 to 18. About
30 bales new crop Uplands brought 19 1-2 to
In various parts of the Northern States,,.
they are entering largely into the production
of silk. From the experiments which have
been made, they regard it as a very profitable
crop. Some among us are also turning their
attention that way. We doubt not, it will.
be found to be a most profitable investment
for those who attempt it. If it be inade pro-
fitable in New England, it must necessarily
'be much more soehere. The mulberry grows
remarkably well here. The black mulberry
grows wild in our hammocks, which shows
the adaption of the mulberry to the soil. We
have seen the Chinese mulberry, sprouting
from the root, reach the height of eight or
nine feet in one summer, and exhibit a most
luxurious growth of foliage without the least
attention. Here too, instead of three hatch-
ings, all. that the season will allow in New
England, the silk-growers might have five
each year. This would make a most import-
ant difference in the annual products. There
is an article on another column showing the
profits which might arise from raising the
mulberry. Possessing a soil well adapted to
the most advantageous culture of many arti-
cles, which can be raised in no other portion
of the U. States, we expect soon to see the
aspect of E. Florida entirely changed. By
growing silk, the grape, indigo, the olive,
the orange and other tropical productions,
this must soon be the garden of the Union,
instead of being regarded as an unhealthy,
A company has been formed for the pur-
pose of establishing a line of Steamers, to
run between New York and Liverpool. They
intend to apply to the Legislature of New
York, for a charter, which will undoubtedly
be granted. Liverpool will thus be brought
within twelve days travel of New York.-
Steam is the order of the day. It seems an
exceedingly appropriate agent for a, people
whose every act illustrates the Crockett mot-
to, "go ahead." Not content with thus
skimming the watery element, our velocity
on land must be increased by the same swift
agent. And locomotives are becoming as
common, as stages were a few years since.
A short time since, a steam-propelled-carriage
ran on a common road, from London, the
distance of forty milesin three hours and a
quarter, and returned in three hours and
twenty minutes. What next ? What would
the heroes of '76 have thought, to have step-
ped into one of our rail road cars, and shot
off bird-like through the air ?
We publish this week on our first page, a
piece of poetry by Mrs. Sigourney. She re-
ceives not her full merit, when called the

is as choice, and her conceptions are as beau-
tiful, original, and as forcibly exhibited, as
hers with whom she is compared. Often her
images are more vividly portrayed, and her
appeals to the heart more pathetic and thrill-
ing. The warmest and noblest feelings of
our nature, are frequently touched, and they
flow at her bidding. Few selections can be
found, surpassing in, their truth and beauty,
the glowing lines commencing, Even tri-
flers felt" &c. Her writings frequently a-
bound in such grap#m, angelic touches. We
would venture to say of her, what can hardly

GREAT NATIONAL WORK.
Of useful and Entertaining Knowledge, to be il-
/ lustrated by numerous Engravings.
BY THE BOSTON BE WICK COMPAdNY.
THE 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
ernable 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 Americans; Views
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 the country, illustrated in a familiar
and popular manner.

STO THE PUBLIC.
ituralist from its lat9
Editor an "nr. 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 from its
coinmencement, in the year 18P8, and he is
thus practically acquainted-with the mode in
which it 'should be conducted. Its publica-
tion will be continued on the same terms and
in the same manner as heretofore with such
improvements as his experience:may suggest.
A s the subscriber is solicitous to make this
Journal'the vehicle for dissemminating useful
informationn. not only with regard to estab-
lished systems of husbandry, but also experi-
mental efforts in Agriculture and Horticul-
ture, he invites free and unrestricted commu-
nication from. all persons occupied, in these
pursuits, Let no one imagine that solitary-
facts or isolated experiments are too trivial to
be communicated. All systematic knowl-
edge is but the aggregate of humble particu-
lars; and Science, in every department, is
brought to perfection, not through the instru-
mentality of a single extraordinary mind, but
by the contribution of particulars by many
individuals, and generally after the lapse of
many years, he is desirous, therefore, to have
as many facts to record as can be furnished ;
and from the planter, who is systematic in
his experimental labors, an account of his
failures as well a his successful efforts, will
le acceptable. If the last are worthy of being-
recorded that they may be imitated, the first
should be noted in order to be shunned.
The subscriber hopes that this appeal to his
fellow citizens of the South, will not be in
vain. It would be a reproach to our Planters
to meet the fate of the Southern Review. Of,
the last it may be justly said, that it was suf-
fered to fall, when it was not only rearing for
us a well merited fame as a literary people,.
but it was also vindicating the Southern hab-
its from the unjust aspersions which have
been so liberally bestowed upon us out of our
section of country. The Southern Agri-
culturalist" in some measure supplies the
place of the Southern Review, so far as re-
gards the circumstances last alluded to. If
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 treatment, the characters of our
Slaves, are fairly suited to its pages, and
constitute' topics as interesting and, important
as any which can 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-
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 rie-
cessary to sustain the Southern Agriculturist

THE BOSTON PEARL AND LITER-
ARY GAZETTE.-Volume Fourth..
Published every week, by
ISAA C C. PRAI Y, Jun.
The work will be published weekly, each
number containing eight large quarto pages.
-equal to sixty duodecimo pages-of miscel-
laneous and original matter, printed on supe-
rior white paper, with perfectly new type. A
handsome title page and correct index will
be furnished, and the work at the end of the
year, will form an excellently printed volume
of four hundred and sixteen pages, equal to
three thousand duodecimo pages.
The volume will contain twenty-six pieces
of music for the Piano Forte, &c. equal to
one hundred of common sheet music, which
could not be purchased separately for less
than five dollars; and the publisher is deter-
mined to procure the simple rather than the
complex and difficult.
Although the publisher places no depen-
dance whatever, in the support of it, as a lite-
rary paper, from its engravings, yet there will
be presented occasionally, plates from copper
and wood of beautiful workmanship and fin-
ish. Already have appeared a beautifully
engraved portrait of James Fenimore Cooper,
executed on steel, and a chaste vignette title
page, engraved on copper.
Its contents will be various and spirited, as
there will be a general record of Occurren
ces, Statistics, Obituary notices, &c. &c. ia

elling, Literary, Fugitive and Historical
Sketches, Biography, Poetry, &c. making an
elegant paper for the parlor, and for the lover
of polite literature, as contributions will be
secured from some of the most popular Ame-
The work will be printed as well, and con-
tain as much reading matter as any similar
quarto paper now published in the United
States; and it can safely and truly be called
the cheapest journal of thaekind.
TFRMs-Three dollars per annum, as the
paper is firmly established-to be paid in ad-
vance. Two dollars for six months, to be
paid in advance.
