REJANG MARRIAGEs.-Reynolds gives
the following account of the courtships and
marriages among the Rejangs of Sumatrar:-
"As respects courtship and riarriage, the
Rejangs have several curious observances
not undeserving of notice. They practice
but little ceremony in their courtships-
their characters and manners do pot admit
of it. The lover and his mistress'are care-
fully kept separated as soon as the old folks
have an inkling that there is suqh a thing
in agitation. Indeed, the fair one is seldom
permitted to leave the shelter of lier moth-
ers wing. i
The young Rejangs, however,fare not to
be considered as wanting in gallantry; for
it is said that they often evince a delicacy
towards the sex which might, perhaps, be
emulated with advantage by people of
higher pretentions to refinement. This
trait, however, must not be considered as
applicable to every individual. Months
and years are not wasted in wooing a coy
and fickle fair one. He does not assail her
with a volley of darts, flames anid raptures.
When he has selected a female as the ob-
ject of his choice, he knows exactly what
she is to cost him; not in sighs and tears,
and doubts and fears, but in good hard
cash, the amount of which is probably all
he is worth in the world, and which, once
paid, places the obligation in his favor.'
The principal intercourse of the young
people takes place at their dances, festivals,
and other amusements, where they are not
backward in making their own selections ;
for old maids and old bachelors are by no
means so plenty in Sumartra as catamounts
and tigers. As soon as his choice is fixed,
the lover, or boojong, employs an old wo-
man to communicate his sentiments to the
mistress of his affections, orgoddess, whose
parents then take the affair into their own
hands, and if no obstacle intervene, bring
it to,a final consummation.
There are several modes of marriage
practised among them. The joojoor is a
fixed sum of money paid down by the man
to the father as a compensation for his
daughter. In a marriage of this sort, the
relation which is established between the
husband and wife can differ but little from
that which exists between a master and his
slave. The relation may be one of great
kindness; but if so, it must be from con-
descension on the one part, and not from
equality of the parties. By leaving a part
of the price unapid, which is generally
done from a sete ot'delicacy, though it
be only five dollars,,the relationship is still
preserved betweeitthe families, and the
parents of the female can interfere in her
behalf in case of ill treatment. But if from
any cause the balance be finally paid, then
the right of the husband becomes absolute,
and the woman is to all intents and pur-
poses his slave; when her power to claim
a divorce ceases, and she may be disposed
of at the will of her husband; provided,
that in all instances the offer be first made
to her relations.
It very often happens, however, as be-
fore stated, that marriages take place with-
out the whole of the money being paid
down; and that-y ears are allowed to roll
on without any demand being made. The
debt, however, is considered sacred, and
can never be outlawed by time, and is
sometimes collected by the second and

So completely is the marriage contract a
matter of commercial arrangement among
these people, that it not unfrequently oc-
curs that friends and neighbors borrow a
girl from each other to effect some matri- ,
minonial arrangement, binding themselves
at the same time to return another in her
place when needed, and to pay thejoojoor t
when required. If the parents or relation t
of a youth go to the parents of a girl to
make a contract, the sum of six dollathis t
usually paid as an earnest of the compact;
after which, the girl cannot be disposed of
to another without incurring upon the pa- c
rents a fine for failing to comply with the

May is the poetaster's pet,
But we prefer October
Because she's worth the most and is
Most dignified and sober.
We like her ladyship so well
We should rejoice to have her
Stay and be sociable and take
Pot luck with us forever.
October is no giddy flirt,
But staid, sedate and sensible,
And yields the treasures of the year
From her great indispensible-
For all good cultivators makes
Most capital deposits,
Establishing the best of banks
In cellars, barns and closets.
Blind Fortune with her golden horn,
And swaggering pretences,
Makes no donations half so rich
As autumn's queen dispenses.
Few parents realize how much their
children may be taught at home by devo-
ting a few minutes to their instruction ev-

ment with his son of ten years old for a
single week, and, only during the hours
which are spent in school. Let him make
a companion of his child-converse with
him familiarly-put to him questions-an-
swer inquiries-communicate facts, the re-
sult of his reading or observation-awaken
his curiosity--explain difficulties-the mean-
ing of things and the reason of things-and
all this in an easy, play-l manner, with-
out seeming to impose a task, and he will
himself be astonished at the progress which
will be made.-[Professor Lindsley.

villages are ugly when compared with
ours. In the beauty of those of the North-
ern States, we far surpass the English.-

names, and they really amuse one; for here

ing of the Royal Victorias, &c. The best

but by what law it'has this claim, which
all acknowledge, I "cannot say, but it often
blazons the claim publicly enough.
For rhiles and miles out of London, there
is as it were, a constant succession of hous-
es. At last I could see the black cloud of
smoke that ever hovers over this immense
hive of human beings. I stretched my
eyes long before I came to the Thames, or
the Terns, as they call it here, (but these
English do not speak English as I shall
prove by and by, rascals as they are for
abusing us for our Yankeeisms,)-the far-
famed Thames-to see this river,and when
I first saw it, and that not far fror Lon-
don, it was a pretty rivulet, as we should
call it, with low banks, that the Penobscot
would take it at one gulp; and this was
the Thames, bearing on its little bosom, all
the commerce of the richest, and, except
Pekin, the greatest city in the world! Then
Windsor Castle was in sight, the residence
of the King and the royal family, with the
British flag floating over it to denote the
presence of the King, as our flag floats
over our capitol, when Congress is in ses-
But all my eyes were for London. Anon
we were engulphed in this whirlpool of
human beings, swallowed up in this migh-
ty vortex,-in the city of the growth ofe
centuries, where man has been dying for
hundreds and hundreds of years, and oth-
er men have filled the reservoir-where
battles and the plague have striven to see
which should work direst havoc with hu-,
man life, where the great dead had throng-
ed, and the mighty living were thronging,
and here am 1 one solitary man knowing
not a human being among one million and
a half like myself! And here, even here,
over the very dust of the host slain by the
plague, and the mightier host slain by
Time, palaces are up, the wild reckless
laugh is heard*-commerce is boisterously
pushing in wealth,-the beautiful lady and
gallant beau are driving with their high
and proudly decked steeds,-and the gold-

painfully sad on entering such a city!-
,Where are the men who years and years
and years ago figured so lustrously, the
Kings and the Nobles, the Orators and the
Poe.ts ?-and where such men as Johnson,
and Goldsmith, and Burke, and Sheridan
and Fox are gone, with other dead within
the walls of yonder Abbey.-I am writing
this within the sound of Westminster.-
What is Fame or Wealth that this host
now boisterously trampling the streets,
should seek it thus ? Does Wellington or

street of th'e city. Here the dead who died

THINGS IN ENGLANI?, &C.
A truce to essays. I am o4 the wing
again. You may consider m4'on the roach
to Lopdon, as entering London, mounted
on an English coach-they never say stage
here; that's a Yankeeism, t4id marks ar
American in England. Stage coach they
sometimes say-never driver but always
Scoachman. Yes, yot may consider me on
a stage coach, as being gallfpped off tc
London from Portsmouth,72 miles in 71-2
hours, including stoppages; fare 12 shil-
lings, (about $2,) without the coachman
who comes in for fifty cents more. You
see I am as particular as a guide book.-
The fact is, these are the very little things
that every body wants to learn, and there-
fore I have treasured them up-and now:
if any one will take the trouble to draw
comparisons he will see that the land mo-
tion is about the same in England as in the
Northern States, and cheaper than it is in
the Southern. Steamboat fare is dearer.
In land carriage, the English are a century
ahead of us, in comfort, expedition, cer-
tainty of motion, &c. In steamboat carri-
age, we are a little more than a century
ahead of them, and as much better as their
carriages and horses are than ours, so much
the worse are their steamboats.
One of the new sights that first strikes
an American eye is the number ofred coats
-of officers and soldiers that he meets with
in the old world. Having been in Halifax
and New Brunswick, I was partially pre-
pared for stich an expedition. The red-
coated soldiers and blue coated officers
throng the streets of Portsmouth. One
meets with them every turn he takes. In-
deed it is no wonder that the English find
little difficulty in procuring recruits, and
the best of them too-for the poor fellow
here-must have a very bad taste not to ex-
change his doubtful condition in life, and
his rags for a red broad-cloth coat, aid cap
and trimmings, with enough to eat and but
little to do.
Another of the new sights is the servants
in rich liveries. The gentlemen's servants
of England look very tnumh like our dan-
dies, and the gentlemen somewhat like our
waiters. Indeed, one's idea of propriety is
often wonderfully puzzled. These servants
are such well dressed fellows, in such fine
broad-cloth, with so many trappings, that I
have to puccer up my mouth twice before
I could ask them to do a job. I cannot
tell servant from master, and therefore I
often go wanting. Opposite my hotel in
Portsmouth, a fellow has often popped his
head out who interests me much. He has
on a powdered wig, scarlet breeches, silk
stockings, silver buckles, and a coat cover-
ed with embroidery and spangled buttons.
If I had ,not had a hint or two I should
have taken him for the Duke of Welling-
ton, He looks very like, the wig excepted,
our Major Generals of Militia on a muster-
day. It would be a long time before I
could make up my mind to ask such a
piece of furniture to do any thing in a ser-
vile way. His master whomn I have since
seen dresses very like some of'our plain
men-and herein is a lesson for many lov-
ers of fine dress-that they are playing in
America the very same part that a master
makes his livery servant play in England
--and here is another lesson too for us.--
How ridiculous is that silly imitation of
livery in the Northern States-it is well
enough in the Southern, in another condi-
tion of society-when an American livery
is such a miserable beggarly imitation of
the rich and costly dresses one sees here-
when an Englishman, too, can put on his
livery the crest of the arms of his family,
whereas we republican Americans cannot,
for the life of us, tell what families we
come from-a large majority of us having
no families at all. When we have the coat
of arms, let us don the livery, and not be-
The coachman of an English coach is
almost a fat man. Ours happens to be not
over-fat, but he is the only lean one I have
seen. We have eleven passengers outside
and four in. Four or five outside are la-
dies, arid ladies, by the way, ride outside as
well as in. The quantity of baggage-
they never say baggage inI Egngland, every
thing is luggage-is immense. A coach on
our roads would upset in a very short time
with such a load. Nor could an English
coachman drive an American coach "on an
American road. Hie would break the necks
of all his passengers in a very short time;
for such furious driving -as would answer
over a McAdamized road here, would be
ruin over our roads. *
The 'coach starts too, at the minute al-
lotted it. At every stage the horses are all
ready. The time at which .the coachman
shall be at the principal towns, is marked
upon the way bills, and the exact time of
his arrival is marked too, by the agent there.
Thus the punctaality of movement is won-.
P oeeti o-

to the approaching nuptials between their
children, miss takes it into her head to love

the law, breathing indulgence and human-
ity, sanctions the act.
THE PLACE TO PUT LIBERTY.--Twice
in France the physical power has gained
the ascendency over lcw; and t Vi-
tory, the discovery has been made, that to
_patriots, cities are fortresses, and pave-
me -ts, -Uinitions. This is one of the most
glorious and dreadful discoveries of mod-
ern days-glorious in its ultimate results in
the emancipating of the world, but dread-
ful if those intervening revolutions which
man achieves in the conquest of liberty, are
without corresponding intelligence and vir-
tue for its permanent preservation.
The conquest of liberty is not difficult-
the question is, where to put it-with
whom to entrust it. If to the multitude
who achieved it, it be committed, it. will
perish by anarchy. If national guards are
employed for its defence, the bayonets
which protect it are at any moment able
to destroy it for a military despotism. If
to a republican king it be entrusted, it (will
have to be regulated by state policy, and
fed on bread and water, until the action of
her heart, and the movement of her tongue,
and te power of her arm, as under the
deadly incubus, shall cease. There-is hot
in this wide world a safe deposit for liber-
ty, but in the hearts of patriots so enlight-
ened, as to be able to judge of correct leg-
islation, and so patient and disinterested,
as to practice self-denial and self-govern-
ment for the public good.
But can such a state of society be found
and maintained without a Bible and the
institutions of Christianity ? Did a condi-
tion of unperverted liberty, uninspired by
Christianity, ever bless the world thiough-
out any considerable period of duration ? .
The power of a favoring clime and the
force of genius, did thrust up from the dead
level of monotonous despotism, the repub-
lic of Greece to a temporary liberty ; Iut it
was a patent model only, compared with
such a nation as this; and it was partial
and capricious, and of short duration, and
rendered illustrious, rather by the darkness
which preceded and followed, than by the
benign influence of its own beams.
Certainly it is Christianity which, in this
country, rocked the cradle of our liberties,
defended our youth and brought us up to
manhood. And it has been proved that'
under her auspices, three millions and
twelve millions of people may be protect-
ed and governed. But that twenty, fifty
or a hundred millions can without a vast
augmentation of her moral power over
mind, has not/yet been proved-whilst all
past analogies, and all present circumstan-
ces of our nation, announce that Christian-
ity is our best hope, and without it our de-
struction does not slumber.
During all past ages, the vast majority
of the human family, unblest by revelation,
have been idolatprs and slaves; and at the
present time, all nations upon whomin the
Sun of Righteous has not risen are crush-
ed by the grievous despotism. Day-light
is not more uniform in the track of the sun,
than civil liberty is found in the track of
Christianity and despotism in its absence.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22.
Nearly every paper, which we take up,
contains some notice of a railway. The
North, East, West and South, all seem to be
on the move. The last year is characterized
by the number of such projects. In one pa-
per is a project for a rail road from Boston to
Albany. 1n another they propose to: unite
the waters 0 Ohio with' the Atlantic, by
means of a rail road from Cincinnati to
Charleston. In another they propose to unite
the Alabama with the Chatahoochie river,and
again with the Tennessee. Another propos-
es to construct a rail road from Nashville to
New Orleans, at an expense of more than ten
millions of dollars. Innumerable others of
less magnitude daily meet our eyei as we
glance over the pages of those heralds of
knowledge which are wafted by every breeze
to the remotest part of our country. And last,
though not least, a proposition is made to con-
nect the Atlantic Ocean wlth the Pacific by
a rail road over the Rocky Mountains. Ex-
travagant as this proposition may s-em, a
few years only will see it realized, if we go
on expanding and improving, unless, in the
mean time, the rail road car should give
place to the balloon car. Speculation fails
before the improvements of time.
The Boston Mercantile Journal contains an
interesting account of the wrecking of the
schooner James Monroe, in the Gulf Stream,
between the Florida shore and the Bahama
Bank, during a severe gale of wind on the
14th and 15th ult., whilston her passage from
N. York to New Orleans. Capt. Pilsbury
and crew saved themselves in the boat, and
were picked up two days after by a Bark,
bound to Boston. In Capt. P."'snarrative the
preservation of the vessel at one time, and
the lives of all on board, is ascribed to the
free use of oil. It ought to be generally
known that oil will prevent the combing of
This is a fact worthy of notice, not only as
important in itself, but as a triumph of the
American philosopher, Dr. Franklin. From
noticinIg the every day incident of throwing
greasy water overboard by the cook, he was
led to the discovery, that oil would diminish
the roughness of the waves. He found that
there is much less friction of the wind when
the surface of the water is covered with oil.
In this way the mind of that truly great man
was accustomed to elicit important truths.-
America may well be proud of him. He not
only analyzed the lightning's flash and iden-
tified it, but said to the rolling billows here
shall thy proud waves be stayed," and they
MAKING THE DUMB TO SPEAK.-The New
York Star gives an account of a most remark-
able cure from deafness, by Dr. Webster of
that city. The subject >was a young man
from Virginia, for some time an inmate of the
Deaf and Dumb Institution of New York.-
The skilful operations of Dr. Webster, almost
instantaneously restored the sense of hearing
to this unfortunate man, who had been deaf
up to that period. The left ear is entirely
restored, and the right partially. The first
effect of the impression of sound, is said to
have been exceedingly painful. In a few
days he became accustomed to it. We think
this a subject worthy the attention of the
most skilful and practical surgeons.
The number, suffering in a similar state,--
a kind of nonentity, for what can a person be,
or enjoy without hearing or language,--is
very great. In Europe it is said there are
upwards of 137,000 persons Deaf and Dumb!
The number! in the U. States is not as great
in proportion. In the Royal Dispensary for
the diseases of the ear, and for the Deafand-
Dumb at London, upwards of 9,630 patients
have been "ured, or relieved since its estab-
lishment in 1816. Dr. J. Togno, of Philadel-
phia, who has twice successfully performed
similar operations, gives it as his decided opin-
ion, that,af least one half of the deaf and dumb
individuals nowv condemned to eternal deaf-
ness, by the generally prevailing ignorance,
might be restored to hearing by an appropri-
The New York Transcript thus speaks:-
The Fair.-" The cry is still, they come."
We wish some of the fair would turn their
faces this way. We would be the last to
" cry" about it. They would make this a land
of the fair," of fruits, and of flowers,-in
sooth a fairy land.
By the last advices from Liverpool, the
Hon. William T. Barry, our Minister to
Spain, is reported to have been so indisposed
at that place, as to induce the belief that he
would notreach Madrid alive.
SUPERIORITY OF AMERICAN SILK.-M.
D'Homergue has been the first to discover
the great superiority of American silk over
that of any other country, and ascertained
the fact, that, while in France it requires
twelve pounds of cocoons to produce one
pound of raw silk, eight pounds will in this
country, be amplysufficient to produce the
same quantity. Experiments made long
since in 'Georgia, it is true had given the
same result,--but they were insulated
and had excited no particular attention.-
In the Manual, published in 1828, un-!
der the authority of the House of Rep-
resentatives of the United States, the au-
thor (pages 105, 106) has inserted those
experiments in detail, as extracted from
the manuscripts of the late Col. Haber-
sham, and has subjoined similar ones made
in Franceand Italy, with their results, ex-
traicted from various writers, and those re-
sults, in general correspond with the state-
ment of M. D'Homergue ; but neither the
author nor any body else, appears to have
perceived the great advantages of Ameri-
can silk over all others although the facts
were before their eyes. The. reason is,
that it required a practical man to make
the important discovery; one well ac-
quainted with the properties of foreign
silks, and enabled by his own experience,
to take clear comparative view of them
with our own, and, decide on both.
ABOLITIONIST CONVERTED. -The New
York Herald tells a good story of a Yan-
kee who has been transformed from an ab-
olitionist to a strenuous advocate for sla-
kveiy. This Jonathan had been journeying
in the Southern States for his health, and
for the purpose of getting subscribers to a
new publication. On he went, from plan-
tation to plantation, until he arrived at the
dwelling place of a maiden lady, who own-
ed a hundred negroes-here our abolition-
ist fell sick, aani left the green bag contain-
ing the shew volume of the new publica-
tion, to rest in peace. The lady kindly
nursed her Northern visiter, until her care
and the operation of a generous climate
cured him of all his ills. He looked about
and found every thing comfortable. His
mind was made up and he assiduously
courted the old maid, until she lent an ear
to his entreaties, and our itinerant aboli-
tionist procured her hand, her heart and
her hundred negroes, at one fellf'swoop."
The anti-abolitionists say, that on this plan-
tation the negroes are a little the hardest
dealt with-of any in that neighborhood.-
Something is likewise said ofthe age ofthe
lady, and whitewashing," which we think
it unnecessary to repeat. ,
PIN MAKING.-A very ingenious inven-
tion for making pins is at present exhibit-
ing at the manufactory of R. Hoe -& Co.
in Gold-street. It is capable of making
and completely finishing eixty pins per
minute ; and it is said three or four of these
machines can be attended by one person
while in operation. When it is considered
that by the ordinary mode eight persons are
required to perfect a pin, the improvement
must be manifest. From plain wire a pin
per second is made in this way.
The race for the Presidency is likely to be
a severe one. If the number of competitors
will affect the interests of Van Buren they
are resolved it shall not be wanting. Gen.
Harrison of Ohio, is entering the list, with
considerable heering, if we may judge from
the numerous meetings which are held in the
Middle and Western States, to approve his
course. Stowed away here, we view, with
perfect nonchalance, the cheering of this and
the plaudits of that, and are often amused by
the expedients resorted to, to obtain interest
here or not to lose it there.
The result of the elections, as far as we
have heard, is as follows:
Tennessee.-From the full returns of the
election for Governor of Tennessee, it appears
that Mr. Cannon received 42,796 votes, Mr.
Carroll, (V. B.) 35,247, and Mr. Humphries
, Kentucky.-Pbur administration men and
nine Whigs, have been elected to Congress.
Rhode Island.-The administration candi-
dates, Sprague and Pearce,have been elected
by small majorities, over Burges and Cran-
North Carolina.--Seven Whigs and six Van
Buien men have been elected.
IndManna.-Five Van Buren men and two
Whigs have been elected.
Alabama.-Mr. Clay has been elected Gov-
Vermont.-Mr. Palmer, (antimason) has
been elected Governor.
Missouri.--One Van Buren man and one
Whig have been elected to Congress.
Maine.-Dunlap, the Van Buren candidate,
has been elected by a large majority.
Georgia.-Sixty-two counties heard from,
which giveSchley (V. B.) 1,807 votes maj.
WARS.-In Tait's Edinburgh Magazine,
we have presented a frightful picture of the
devastations of war. What a lesson do the
following facts teach Within the last cen-
tury, there have been four wars, which have
cost Great Britain 1,046,400,000 sterling, or
upwards of $4,650,000,000; and in which she
lost upwards of 2,450,000 lives. In the war
commenced in 1793, Great Britain spent
750,000,000; France, 690,000,000; Aus-
tria, 220,000,000, the other states of Europe
1,012,000,000; and the United States 27,-
000,000 ; making the sum of 2,699,000,000;
or $11,994,356,000. Such was the terrible
destruction of human life, during this long
and protracted 'war, that upwards of twio mil-
lions of our fellow creatures are said to have
fallen a sacrifice, among the several bellige-
rants. What an enormous expenditure of
what we most value, treasure and life, does
War occasion! Since A. D. 1000, therehav.e
been fifty-one wars.
All the papers north of this speak of its
having been unusually cold. The Georgian
says--"',there was a frost on the 8th inst."
The Mobile Mercantile Advertiser says-
"it is rumored there were frosts in the inte-
rior last week; but we trust, if there have
been, they have been light. Severe frosts,
at this time, it is feared would do great injury
to the crops." We thought it had been cold
here. But we observe, several plum trees in
bloom, and peach trees are blossoming near
this, we learn. We suspect it was not very
cold after all.
APPOINTMENTS.-The President of the Uni-
ted States has appointed JOHN FORSYTH, Jr.,
of Alabama, to be Attorney for the Southern
District of that State, in place of John Elliott,
WILLIAM MARVIN, of New York, recently
appointed District Attorney for the Southern
District of this Territory, we observe, is on
his way to Key West to commence his duties.

S FRArNCE.-The laws imposing addition-
al restraints on the press, introduced by
the King's Ministers immediately after the
attempt on his life, have passed the Cham-
ber of Deputies by a majority of 290.-
They have already been presented to the
Chamber of Peers where they will no
doubt also be adopted. The utmost in-
dignation is expressed by the opposition,
and even by moderate journals at the rig-
orous provisions of these laws. It is cus-
tomary, that when a law has passed the
Chamber, the President of that body pre-
sent it to the King, but in the present in-
stance the celebrated M. Dupin, President
ofthe ChamBer, declined performing the
unpleasant task, and it devolved on the

ENGLAND.-We find in the Paris Journ-
als accounts from London to the 29th Au-
gust. The Municipal Corporations bill
had passed the House of Lords with all
the amendments made by the Conserva-
tive party. There were but five votes a-
gainst it, and these from the most violent
tory lords, who would not vote for any bill
whatever. We perceive, as we expected,
that the majority in the House of Com-
mons have renounced their intention of
withholding the supplies, and that a con-
ciliatory course will be pursued by both
parties. A conference is spoken of be-
tween the two Houses, in which some of
the most objectionable innovations shall be
given up by the Commons, though the
principle. of the Bill be preserved. The
leading prints of both parties recommend
this course. We have no doubt that in
this way, the difficulties will be removed,
in which the King would be involved by a
resignation of the present ministry before
they had carried through the House the
supplies for the public service.
The new Bill proposed by Lord Mel-
bourne for the preservation of peace in
Ireland, was rejected by the Lords on the
15th of August, by a vote of 51 to 30. By
this rejection the power of the police islefil
in the hands of the magistrates, instead of
being taken under the immediate direction
of the government. It will no doubt cause
great dissatisfaction. The object of the
Peers is to force a resignation of the Mel-
bourne ministry and a dissolution of Par-
liament, in the hope that a new election
will increase the conservative strength in,
the lower House.

SPAIN.-The accounts from Spain con-
firm the previous accounts of the distract-
ed state of things in that country. The
Carlists retain possession of the Barque
provinces and Navarre, and no military
movements attended with decisive results,
have taken place. Independent juntas
have been established in Barcelona, Sarra-
gossa, Valencia and Murcia, which act in
concert and have an army, the command
of which it is said has been offered to Mi-
na. The views of these different juntas
are indicative of the state of anarchy into
which the country has fallen. The junta
of Barcelona demands the convacation of
constituent Cortes; and the junta of Sarra-
gossa requires the re-establishment of
Kingdom of Arragon, with its fuero.

mand the total suppression of reli .

FRoM KEY WEST.-We learn from Cap.

rived on Saturday last, that a very severe
and destructive hurricane occurred at Key
West, and its vicinity, on the 15th Septem-
ber. The following vessels employed

Charleston City Bank, &c., and hence, in
order to make the table complete, the
reader should add the capital of all recent-
ly chartered Banks. It will be perceived
that the banking capital of this State [Penn-
sylvania] amounts to little more than sev-
enteen millions, while in 1834 that of Mas-
sachusetts amounted to $29,409,450-and
New York has more than $31,000,000:

Indiana, 4- 1,500,000
District of Columbia, 3,335,305
In this statement, there is a material error
in the amount set down for this Territory.
The Banking capital of Florida may be thus
stated :-Union Bank of Florida, capital,
$3,000,000; Bank of Pensacola, $2,500,000;
Central Bank of Florida, $1,000,000; Bank
of West Florida, $500,000; total, $7,075,000.

A VETERAN "WHIP."-Mr. A. Shum-
way, of Belchertown, has driven the stage
between that town and Northampton, more
than 25 successive years! He has passed
over the road on an average, twice every
day, and after making proper deductions,
it will be found he has travelled 168 miles
per week, 8736 a year, and 218,400 miles,
during this period of time His route at
both extremities is usually before daylight
in the morning or after dark in the even -
ing, and numberless instances have occur-
red when the darkness was intense, or dur-
ing terrific storms; yet what is very re-
markable, he has never overturned his
coach, killed a horse, or met with a seri-
ous accident of any kind. When it is re-
membered that he has made more than
15,000 trips, and conveyed at least 124,000
passengers, and has neither broken a limb
nor upset his coach, surely such a man de-
serves well of his country.

MORNING.-At the morning's dawn, when
nature, refreshed by the dews of night,
smiles around and revives afresh, she cries
aloud-' O, mortal! Why art thou a prey

The term of thy existence is not confined

ERRORS OF THE PRESs.-And you can't
think what havoc these demons sometimes
choose to make of one's sense, and what's
worse, of one's rhymes. But a week or
two since, in my ode upon Spring, which
I meant to have made a most beautiful

from the freshly blown roses!" the nasty
things made it" from freshly blown noses!"

minister to a member of his class, whose
ringlets attracted his eye,) you should not
waste your precious time in curling your

A GRAVE AFPAIR.-A lad was one day
despatched to the house of a clergyman to
request him to attend a funeral. He arri-

mean; but who'A dead ?" My little broth-

There is much force in the moral of this
old fable:-"A man had the choice of
committing the least of three offences-
murder, robbery, or drunkenness. He
chose the latter, got drunk, and then com-
mitted the other two."

TO THE PUBLIC.
THE SUBSCRIBER, having purchased
The Southern .Agriculturalist from its lata
Editor and proprietor, Mr. John D. Legare,
solicits the support of the friends of Agricul-
ture, and of th,e interests connected with it,
throughout the Southern States. He has
published this work for Mr. Legare from its
commencement, in the year 1828, 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..
As the subscriber is solicitous to make this
Journal the vehicle for dissemmninating useful
information, not only with regard to estab-
ished 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
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 Southerp 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
system of Slavery. The subjects of the deci-
plinea 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 conceos.
The subscriber begs leave, in conci.sion,
to remark, that if he had npt 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 merital energies ne-
cessary to sustain the Southern Agriculturist.

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

elegant paper for the parlor, and for the lover
of polite literature, as contributions will be

tain as much reading matter asJW similar

the cheapest journal of the kind.

"Rural life seldom fails to accomplish
onie object,-it softens the heart. It awak-
ens the affections, and leads to contempla-
tion. God made the country, and Man
made the town.'* In the former, there are
no artificial wants, prejudices, or fashions,
all is cordiality, comfort and peace. We
look abroad upon the solemn hills, the
shining streams, and waving woodlands
and we feel that God is there!-His hand
placed the mountain on its throne, and
rolled around its crown of misty glory, his
breath fills the blue vault that swells above,
until immensity, as it were, is visible; and
his smile is shadowed only in. the sun-
beams which traverse those abysses of
mystery. How majestic is the coming of
a summer storm! We sit at the window
of some rural mansion, to which we have
fled from the thick air and heat of the me-
tropolis; we see the far-off clouds arise
like giant forms against the horizon, with
spears of fire and robes of purple and gold;
then, as by some sudden alchemy, they
melt into a mass of solid gloom, from
whose bosom the lightning darts its vivid
THE RULING PASSION OF THE SEx.-The
love of ornament is the pulling passion of
the sex. So it has ever been, and so it
ever will be. There's not a woman that
lives who does not regard the matter of
dress as a most important consideration.-
Even the old and decripit, or the young
and the unseemly, will try on a dashing
bonnet or a handsome shawl with the flut-
ter of the heart that speaks plainer than a
thousand words the delight it occasions.
This is partly the result of education and
habit. The first toy a girl generally gets
is a doll, and the first.thing she learns is to
dress it in the most attractive manner.-
These infantile idols are kept clothed in
rich vestments, and the little Worshipper
learns the value of such externals by their
influence upon herself. To aid this im-
pression, the mother, the nurse, and the
governess, use their best endeavors, by
making a new sash or' a pretty cap the-
most desirable rewards, and the resump-
tion of a cast-off frock or a soiled pair of
shoes the most dreaded punishments. As
the child increases in years, the knowledge
that superiority in dress is the passport to
general admiration gains strength. The
girl views it as a means of ensuring atten-
tion, and the woman relies upon its assist-
ance to strengthen her power over the
other sex, or increase her influence with
her own. Dress is the pivot on which
every feminine action must turn.
ADRIEN THE MAGICIAN.-This adroit

GREAT NATIONAL WORK.
Of useful and Entertaining Knowledge, to be il-
lustrated by numerous Engravings.
BY THE BOSTON BEWICK COMPdVNY.
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 Americans ; Views
of Public Buildi*s, 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. .
