- diance in vain; and he had seen the sun
y rise so often that it had lost all its novelty.
d His feelings were not awakened by wand
o ering affections, nor was his clear and cal-
- culating brain disturbed by the intrusive
- visions of fancy. Nature, art, beauty and
d fashion, all went on with their various rev-
solutions and adventurers without affecting0
y him-his time was devoted to his duty,
v and he knew no other pleasure.
Ten years passed away, and brought
with it as usual many unexpected changes.
g Charles Chatterton, the mould of fashion
e and the glass of form, had been left in poVI-
e erty by the failure-of his father:. Bred up
s in all the luxuries of life and unprepared to
a meet its ruder scenes, he was inadequate
s to support himself. His fine effeminate
spirit broke down, and he lives in poverty,
. neglected by his former friends, and await-
ing a miserable death.,
Obadiah on the contrary, has succeeded
, beyond all expectations.' His skill and
Knowledge have acquired for him a high
Reputation, and he is rapidly amassing a
i fortune, which he will doubtless know how
Sto keep as wellas to obtain. His manners,
Stood, have become polished since his inter-
Scourse with the world, and the rough and
awkward country lad is now one ofthe rich-
est and most celebrated wyersI one of
the first states in the UnioO. His influence
is visible upon a large portion of society ;
and there are rumors of an intention to
send him to Congress.
What a pity it is that the fine and delicate
enjoyments of our nature are so often'in-
consistent with worldly success; and that
wealth and fame must be bought by so
many sacrifices of feeling kand affection.
[Neal's Yankee.
MAR-RIAGE.-The happiness ofthe marri-
ed state depends much on conformity of
taste. Miserable must that person bewho,
possessing intellect of a high order, -and'
cultivated taste, is doomed to pass his or'
her life in the closest union with ignorance,
vulgarity, or stupidity. Miserable must
that person be who, of a sober,.sedate, re-
flective turn of mind is doomed to live,
and if possible to loe a being who is the
essence of folly, frivolity, and rude gaiety.
Miserable must that person be who, having
cultivated the principles of morality, is
condemnedTaopress on his or her bosom,
one who is regardless of moral principles-
and mocks at religion. Yet how often in
our progress through life, do we meet with
such couples, "paired not matched," who
yoked together instead of administering to
the happiness 6f each other, by pursuing
the same pleasures, and cultivating the
same tastes, possessing no congeniality of
feeling, and agree only on one subject, that
of increasing each other's wretchedness.-
Hannah More in her Ccelebs in search of
a wife, describes in her usual felicitous
manner, in the following passage, the evils
which result fiom a union where there is
.no congeniality of feeling.
S"How dull we find it when civility com-
pels us to pass even a day with an illiter-
ate man!-Shall we not then delight in
kindred acquirement of a dearer friend ?-
Shall we not rejoice in a companion who (
has drawn, less copiously perhaps, from the 1
same rich sources with ourselves, who can
relinquish the beauty we quote and trace
the allusion at which we hint ? I do not 1
mean that learning is absolutely necessary,
but a man of taste who has ah ignorant
wife, cannot in her company think his own
thoughts "nor speak his ownr language,- (
his thoughts he will suppress, his language 1
he will debase-the one from hopelessness, t
the other from compassion. He must be t
continually lowering and dilating his mean-
ing, in order to make himself intelligible. s
This he will do for the woman he loves,
but in doing it he will not be happy. (
She who cannot be entertained by his (
conversationn will not be convinced by his s
'easoning,-and at length he will find out,
that it is less trouble to lower his own s
standard to hers, than to exhaust himselfin a
the vain attempt to raise hers to his own." 1

CRUELTY OF A FATHER.-In a little vil- i
lage near Landan resided a respectable fam- a
ily, consisting of the father, mother,,son s
and daughter. Until the year 1823 they r
had always lived together in the greatest t
harmony. At that period the daughter,
then very young, formed an attachment to
a man of low birth atu connexions, which
circumstance gave the greatest offence to t
her family, and more especially to her fa-
ther. Neither entreaties nor menaces were t
of avail to shake the young lady's affection t
for her lover; and the father seeing that all p
was in vain, resolved to employ the most a
horrible means to be revenged. He made,
her go down into one of the cellars of the
house, where he walled uip a space in a r
corner so as to form a narrow dungeon, t
the entrance of which he afterwards clos- d
ed up with stones and mortar, leaving only s
a small aperture, through which the hand s

could be introduced for the purpose of
supplying hIer with food. He then,to al-,
lay the suspicions of his neighbors gave
out that he had sent his daughter to a
boarding school. Shortly afterwards he
* read abroad a rumor that she was dead
ad went into mourning for her. During
seven years the unfortunate girl remained
enclosed in this dungeon. Every, week
her father took her down fresh straw to
lie upon, and a measure of boiled potatoes,
which was to serve for the whole nourish-
ment until the next visit. About three
weeks ago a happy accident delivered her
from this dreadful durance. One of the
servant maids, whose -curiosity had been
excited by the father's conduct, aqd by the
circumstance of its being strictly forbidden
to all the family to enter the e'llar, resolv-e
ed to approach the interdicted cave. When
at the door she began to sing, and soon af-
terwards she heard a faint cry in the corn-
er. Appr-oaching the spot whence the
sound proceeded, she was soon inforined
the circumstances of this horrible affair.
The nmaid immediately gave information to
the authorities of the place, who on arriv-
ing, released the wretched being from her
long and doleful captivity. The father and
mothlier have been placed in custody. The
unfortunate girl on being restored to the
light of day, presented thee most hideous
appearance. She was unable to stand, her
legs having been so long bent under her as
to have deprived her of all use of them.-
It was hardly possible to ,recognize a hu-
man being in the miserable and deformed
object.--[Courrier Francais.

PRicTICAL PRINTERS.-It is singular
how many practical printers are at the head
of the newspaper and periodical press at
the present time, both in Great Britain and
this country: and how many gentlemen of
the same profession have been conspicu-
ous in the halls of legislation, and the walks
of science and elegant literature. Notwith-
standing the sneers of would-be-gentlemen,
and their affected depreciation of the very
individuals by whom they subsist, we do
Inot know a prouder or more gratifying ti-
tle than that of a member of the "art 'ire-
servative of all arts'," by which currency
and stability are given to the fleeting and
otherwise transitory speculations of the
ppiia andthe ,moraiat; by which
the bright conceptions of the poet are im-
bodied. in a durable form. and are convey-
ed wherever a wave dances, a wind blows,
or a language is spoken; which is the
source of every refined and elegant pleas-
ure ; to which all the modern cultivation
and improvements in science owe their or-
igin ; to which the liberal arts are indebted
for their expansion and influence, and ev-
ery member of which is as much superior
to the supercilious and sneering sciolist in
literature and manners, as the man of sense
is to the drivelling idiot, or the polished in-
habitant of New York, London and Paris,
to the half nakedsavage of the Feejee Is-
lands. There is scarcely a country news-
paper which is not edited and printed by
the same individual,: and the majority .of
he journals of the cities is similarly cir-
cumstanced; which is a high eulogium on
the industiv, talents, prseverence and en
lerpirise of these gentlemen, and at once
proves the profession to.be well entitled to
the designation of a liberal art.

AUTuMN.-Passing rapidly along the
current of time, we are almost impercepti-
bly surrounded with the fading beauties of
he past summer, aita discover at once the
riumphant return of Autumn. The voice
of nature is heard proclaiming to man, that
he has again nearly accomplished the
work of bounteous providence, in the abun-
lant harvest which fill the valleys, and
*rown the hills, with those attendant bles-
tings always made the return of Autumn
a season of peculiar gratitude, as well as a
seriouss meditation, There is a striking
analogy between the changing events of
human life. In no season of the year are
we more forcibly reminded of these than

n Autumn1, when we behold lying thick
around us the faded laurels of departed '
summer. Nature seems to pause and
mourn, while she views from her lofty
hrone, the great and mighty change in this
her universal empire.

ORIGINAL RETORT.-A yo0ng lady was
old by a married lady, that she had better
precipitate herself from. off the rocks of
he Passaic Falls into the basin beneath,

lied, eIl would if I thought I should find
Husband at the bottom. .

moment of its flush of pleasure can steal a

dedicate it to benevolence and charity, is

You are a good-for-nothing lazy rascal
said an exasperated farmer to his son Oba
diah Davis. 'Ifou-have either water
rly the horses nor fed the pigs. There's Sa
scolding down Fiairs, because there's n
cts wood cut for the oven; an you have le:
)le theAars of the lane down, and the cow ha
ed gone to neighbor Humphrey's field. Ge
out you lazy good-for-nothing loon-out c
d- my sight!'
u- Mr. Davis was six feet high, Obadia
was not more than five feet three. Th
last adjectives, with their terminating nour
were rendered much more emphatic by
the hearty cuff, wi. whvhJ each was ac
comjnanieeind tljeJast plianatory push
vthe paim ofuahand braw
ny with fifty years labor, formed a hint nc
to be inistaken, that the negligent youth'
company was no longer wanted,
Obadiah was a lubberly looking fellow
about twenty. He bore the beating with
- good grace, the necessity of which frequent
experiment had inculcated; and, without
ch saying a word to his parent, he went down
the lane, a neglectof the bars which form
ed one of the counts in the declaration
n -against himn, and sat down on a stone in
little grove of trees, and by theside of c
brook whose waters swept rapidly eve
d their sandy bed, and filled the air with
of freshness and with music. He ruminate<
a while with his under lip out in a pouting
way, which with him, as well as others
Swas a sign of some internal agitation.
'Yes, he exclaimed-for why .should
not a farmer's boy address the groves aw
Sinvoke the rural spirits, as well as Tell oi
Brutus ?-'-.yes,'says Obadiah, drawing the
sleeve of his coat across his mouth, with
more of a view of comfort than of grace-
S'yes, I'll be darned if I stand this 7ere any
more. I ai'nt to be beat like a dog all mI
V- life, and I think I may as well give dad the
-slip now as any other time. I'll tell .hin
ori't. If he's a mind to give me a trifle sc
much the better, if he ai'nt, why, he ma
r, let it alone.'
It was about two days after the preced-
ing event that Mr. Davis, was surprised at
! the appearance of his son equipped for a
journey. He started at him for a moment
partly, silent from displeasure and partly
rom surprise.
n 'Well father,'said Obadiah, with some
hesitation, 'I'm come to bid you good-by.'
? To bid me good-b you fool! why
where are you a going ?
I'm going to seek my ibrtune in the
World, father. I know I am of no use to
n you. I think I can do ahnost as well any
where else. I ca'nt do much worse at all
events. So I am going down to York, or

Warm and deep feelibigs, thank"heaven!
, are not confined to the wealthy or the wise,
o and nature fashions her humblest hearts as
rich in strong and delicious affections as
t those which beat, beneath flashing stars.-
t, Mr. Davis loved his son for many reasons.
, He was the only pledge of one who had
y stirred up the romance of earlier feelings
and whom now the green sod covered;
and Obadiah, -ordinary as was his general
appearance, sometimes turned upon him
with an expression of eye, or replied in
mirth with a smile, which recalled her to
ehis memory, with feelings which he found
no where else in the wide world. Besides,
he was always honest and affectionate, and
- though he never discovered that kind of
activity which might have rendered him
useful in the station which he had occupi-
. ed, yet he was his son, and as such, he felt
more than he was in the habit of putting
in words. His eyes appeared moist, there-
1 fore as he remonstrated with the young
adventurer, and found him firm in the pur-
pose which he had, it seemed, been.a con-
siderable .time in adopting; and after much
useless persuasion, with a voice softerned
by the thought of approaching separation,
he asked him what course he intended to
pursue. ..
''lam agolng to study law.'
And how are you to be supported while

you are following your studies?'
'I guess -I'll teach school,' answered
Obadiah with the gravity of a saint.
The old man, in spite of his sorrow,
could riot refrain from laughing at the idea
of this young :unsuccessful agriculiurist,
retailing his wisdom and knowledge to the
rising generation, or pursuing the subtile
shadows ofjustice through the mazy laba-m
rynths of law. .He looked at him with in-
creasing wonder. There he wa. with his
brown coat and linsey-woolsey patitaloons,
his'hair combed straight over his forehead,
and his bashfiulness flinging him into the
most awarked attitudes, even in this-attempt
to explain his new prospects. But Obadi-
ah, it appears, had made up his mind, and
was not inclined to return to his old enm-
ploymlent on any termins., He therefore bIid
his father good-by, and shook hands with
,his Sister, Sally and the cook. -A short

walk over the farm afforded him an oppor
p tunity of performing the tame tender dut
- towards the horses, the pigs, and the old
d cow. All things being at length settled t
l his satisfaction, he started on his way.-
o The old dog Csesar came after him wag
ft going his tail affectionately, and entreate(
is eloquently, but in vain, tc accompany his
t master upon his novel expedition. Man
)f sensitive folks would have yielded a few
soft regrets to the quiet and really beauti
h fhl spot he was leaving, perhaps tforever.-
e But Obadiah never drearied ofregretting
, what he was doing of his own accord. He
y therefore cast only a slight retrospective
Glance upon the scene of his boyish pains
Sand leasures"d "g surveyed it a
d-moment with one eye shut, began hi

s The disadvantages under which he la
bored =a immense, Without education
v and totally destitute of experience in th(
h fashionable or literary world; friendless
it and almost pennyless, he was to make his
it own way among those who had enjoyed
n proper instructions andhigLh friends from
- their birth--who had been ushered into
a public life with the honors rf college and
a who would scarcely regard the plain and
a retiring country boy, except with smiles
x and derision-
h His advan es, however,were not by
d himself disregarded, He knev the strength
g of mind which had grown Lp in the soli-
, tude and quiet of nature's abodes, una-
wakened by the dissipation of passion, and
Suntrammelled by the fetters ofa bad system
Sof education. lie knew that he had great
r difficulties to struggle against, and that he
e must depend upon himself, duly to supply
Small deficiencies of nature ard art by his
- own unwearied application.

In a spending drawing room of a well
Known city, a young gentleman was enter-
Stainingsome young ladies. The girls were,
Lovely, and they, as well as the graceful
South whose handsomely turned periods
excited so much pleasure, and whose attic
wits produced such bursts of merriment,
Seemed whirling away the hours delight-
fully, in all the charnning familiarity of
t high life. A ringing was heard at the door,
and a servant announced Mr. Obadiah Da-
vis, who aceidently walked in width his hat
on, and, without the slightest embarrass-
ment, proceeded to business The polite-
ness ever attendant upon real gentility,
prompted all the company to restrain their
disposition towards mirth, while Mr. Davis
presented his letter of introduction, and the
gentleman was perusing the same. But
when, after having finished and folded up
the letter, Mr. Chatterton introduced Mr.
Davis to the, ladies, as a gentleman from
the country, whose intention it was to pur-
sue the profession of law, the lurking smile
curled their rosy lips in spite themselves ;
and Mr. Chatterton himself, while he per-
formed all the necessary duties which the
etiquetteof the day required, added to the
good humor of his fair and merry compan-
ions by a wink that did not pass altogether
unobserved, p
Mr, Chattertoncomplied with his request
which, upon the recommendation of a
friend, he bad made, to be allow ed to file
his certificate in theoffice where the young

Time passed on. C. Chatterton, in the
full possession of an ample fojtune, and
surrounded by all the blandishments of life,
found a thousand thingsto charm him
from his office. He was young, and gay,
and witty. His society was courted by all
his acquaintances of his own sex, and
among the fair and fascinating ofthe other,
a heart like his was sure to find joys too
delicious to be yielded for the drudgery of
a lawyer's office, or the remote hopes of
future fame. Heloved music and its notes
welcomed and detained him wherever he
went. Dancing was his delight; and there
were snowy hands ,which he knew he
might have for the asking, and bright eyes
to flash upon him when he did ask ; and
how could he turn from witcheries like

these, for the dusty volumes of antiquated
law? He wa-s an enthusiastic admirer of
nature, and she wooed him in a thousand
ways from his tedious task. 'Her breath
was fragrant upon the air, and her voice,
came to him in winning tones-upon every
breeze. It was impossible for him to turn
a deaf ear to her enchantments, therefore
he walked, -sailed, rode-sometimes he
wandered forth in the morning to witness
the rising of the sun, and agaoIin the sunm-
mer night, the moon would tre him out
from the unhealthy lamn,. roam with
loved ones beneath her e.M

By news from Alachua, it appears that the
Seminole Indians have openly shown their
,opposition to the measures of the Govern-
ment for their removal, by commencing hos-
tilities upon the inhabitants residing near
them. Their first act was the murder, of
Charles 0'Mathla, a chief of the Mickasuky
tribe, who was i4 favor of a removal..
Col.,Mcdntosh, who resides near Micano-
py,, 'thus writes:'---' By express ,.from Fort
King last night we lean that the Mieckasuky
Indians have, .illed Charles 0'Mathla, and
shown other signs of hostility; Which, in my
humble opinion, brings matters to a ,crisis.
We have a defenseless frontier, which must
be, entirely sacrificed, unless aided from
some source or other." .'
They have since made attacks upon' seve-
ra famiiie, la-4,1 waste their plantations,

fins1 blow Iias been'givenlto.,tihe two 1"t
props, which supported the, tottering super-
structure of abolitionismn in. the Norlhern
States'. Garrison,' the (pretended) philan-
thropist, the'greaot friend of universal free-
dom, he who boasted oft.his willingness to
die a martyr to 'his principles, has sho w n
himself a hIpocrite, and compelled to seek
refuge from the fury of his incensed fellIw --
citizensin a common gaol. And Thompson,
the foreign incendiary, has been proved to
be a iascal and in outcast vagabond, and
after skulking among the dark places of our
populous cities, till he could no lonlger, :has
at length fled, from the .country.
The treatment which these- fellows "have
received, andu tiet spirited meetings which
hav6 been held at the North, show that the
people are'indiguanizt-at, the interference of

cerns of the South Tl'6y lihave hunted them
from post to pillar, through all the length
and breadth'of their territorie's;' a nd have
given ample.- assurance, that 'they feel no

..Our design is to'offer a few 'remarks in-re-
Iation to Garrison, who ; has''fi-gured so corn-
spicuously in the: froit" ranks 'o'f the aboli-
tionists; We belie ve the man to have, been
led, away, by an, enthisia~sm which the weak-
hess of his intellect rendered him 'incapable
of resisting. Eossessed of a vivid imagina:-
tion and a head too. weak: to control it, he'
has rushed forwardiin his reckless .and head-

schooner Octavia, it Baltimore, from St.
Johns, Porto "Rico, whence she sailed on
the 25th Oct. Thb editors of the Ameri-
can have received intelligence relative to
certain political discontents which have
recently been manifested among the troops
stationed at St. Johns., It appears that the
news of the movements in Spain, in'favor
of the Constitutio'i was received with much
gratification by a portion of the troops at
St. Johns,"and that they were not slow in
,testifying their sentiments ,by- shouts of
songs of which ihe Constitution was the
burthen. The officer who permitted the
soldiery to make these demonstrations was
soon after place in confinement, but this
act only served to make ,them the more,
discontented, ana his release from confine-
ment was loudly demanded. In a short
time afterwards the officer was sentoff in
a vessel to Spaih, and as soon as the fact
had transpired, the soldiers became so ex-
asperated,. that the destruction of the town.
vwas threatened., Gen. La Torre- the gov-
ernor of the Island, and a highly popular
officer, had succeeded thus far in prevent-
ing matters friorn-coming to. extremeties,
but it was doubted when, the Octavia sail:

GYMEN.-This alarming disease, sometimes
improperly called Bronchitis," has, it is
well known, become exceedingly common
among the clerical profession in our coun-
try. As many as twenty clergymen during
the past summer, were in the space of a
few days noticed at Saratoga, laboring un-
der it. What makes it a subject of greater
interest, is that in- this climate, if it has pro-
gressed to a certain point beyond the incip-
ient stage, it is almost always fatal. The
Rev. Mr. Rutledge of S. C., was cut off by
it a fewyears since in the prime of his life,
leaving a large and interesting family be-
hind. The Rev. Mr. Taylorjthe eloquent
pastor of Grace Church, also like Mr. Rut-
ledge, a southern man, and therefore mo,
predisposed to puhnonatyfinflamation, has
recently left here for Europe, with symp-
toms, which it is feared, indicated an at-
tack of this dreadful malady. We believe
it was first scientifically described by Dr.
Hugh McLean of New York,.in the Amer-
iean Med. and Phil. Register. He proper-
ly called it Ldryngeat Thithisis or con-
sumption, attackng the: upper part of the
windpipe, in the immet6dinte nhighborhood
of the cartilages aiad mttscles1 emtiployed in
speech. It has alo, beside'sits'character-
istic symptom',of hoarseness.'and loss of
speech, those of ordinary; consumption-
the same hectic flurb, exacerbations of fe-
ver, night sweats expectoration, &c.thou gh
all are infinitely more rapdid:when the dis-
ease is fairly formed. Constnt 'expecto-

Trachtlic Phthisis,as the windpipe. prpo-,
before It branches into the lungs, is often
if not always'involved', as may be seen by
examining after death, the ulcerations atnd
inflamed patches on the mucous membrane
imtnediately :at, the bifurcation ofthe-bron-
t chim. Thebf 'whole of the body band sub-
stance of theluhgs also, may finally become
,implicated by the inflammation extending
into'all the ramifications ofthe air Vessels.
But more frequently perhaps the disease is
confined0to one spot, tfafdt of the windpipe
and rapidly, wastes: away the patient by in-
cessant mucous expectorations, hoarseness
and irritation,
( ,A clergyman, ,in the Pehnsylvanian,
newspaper; at Philadelphia, has, in a l6ng
article' enumerated 'the supposed -causes,
many of which are well founded. He im-
putes its frequent occurrence among cler-
gymen, to their incessant labor in speaking,

It was late on one of those bitter cold
nights which are* not unfrequently felt in
'our climate in the dead of winter, when,
the 'full moon looks down upon the crusted
snow; sparkling and creaking as the sleighs
glide along, that one of our most benevo-
lent and wealtdy':citizens was aroused
from hIs slunibe'rs by a rap. at his door.-
Witlout disturbing the family the door
Was opened, and he listened to the tale; of
a half starved foreigue', whose wants were
n~ot all his own, for the partner of all his
joys'and s-orrows as well as8 their offspring,
for whotm ho had found some poorshelter,
were waiting-his return. ,
SMcriing came, and the industrious ser-
vant, girl was up betimes to spread the'am-
ple,'breakfist" board. Priding herself, in
the success% of her baking the previous day,
as well as,:congratulating herself oil the
ease with whieh she should live for the
several succeeding ones her batch would
last, lhe ,opened the closet,--but what %%as
her surprise when vot a drop cIke could fe
fawnd! "In vain every place wassearched,
nor could the surprise. of Aher-mistress and
the searchling oftheifamilyimake -any dis-
covery. Robbers had been there-'but yet

not a door was fund unbolted, or a win-'
dow raised!
Fortunately, however, a brown.loaf was
found in the oven-and the smokidngcone
rose like the peak of Teneriff from the
centre of the table when the family gath-
ered around it. It was, however, by the
robbing idea rendered quite as unpalata-
ble to most of those who surrounded it as
the peak itself; while the good man who
had been rather silent, never seemed to
eat with a better-relish.
,Well, wife, I have not made'a better
meal these three inonths-I -hardly knew
before the goodness of a brown loaf-it
seems to the the travellers on wh'ro I be'
stowed your diop cakes at midnight, have
leavened this loaf with a blessing..
The mystery of. the lost bread was now
explained, andcthe loaf was at once found
byall around.the 1oard to possess a pecu-
liar richness..'
The discovery thus made has doubtless
been practiged'to a greater or less extent
by the discoverer, ever. since. As he has
not sought a patent for this discovery, no
one need fear encroaching upon his right,
who is desirous of knowing the flavor of
the leaven of benevolence ; having 7 the Tree
privilege of making a trial forthwith.--
This leaven works admirably in 'the winter

CHEROKEE AFFAIRs,----There are four
Cherokees in Milledgeville, who state, that
in the absence Of Col. Bishop, the, second
officer of the Cherokee Guard, with .ade-
tachment crossed the boundary of, the
State, proceeded to the residence of John
Ross in Tennessee, seized him,and brought
hitn a prisoner into Georgia. They state,
that this outrage was perpetrated at the
suggestion ,of Schermerhorn and Currie,
agents of the United States; and that its
motive', was,to 'leep Ross from going.,to
Washington, to represent the Cherokees
with the Federal Government. These four
men are said to be as reputable as most
Indians; but they belong to the Ross p1ar-
ty ;and there is, strong -reasons to believe,
that if there is any truth in tlie statement,
it is partial, and suppresses material, facts.-
If it be true', an enormous outrage has been
perpetrated, which cannot be too severely
condemned;, and which we shall- more
deeply deplore, because it may produce an
iippression unfavorable to the continuance-
of tha guard, which has been found neces-
sary to the. peace and good order of the.
Cherokee country. An,officer of that guard
Imaydo Wrong, and-somay a sheriff; and
so'may a judge and so may the Governor
of the State', Who for the fault of one of
these latter officers, would think ofabolish-
ing our courts, or destroying our govern-
men(t? If a gross outrage has been p1erpe-
trated, the offender ought to be punished;
but it ou ghtot -be permitted to exert any
influence over the decisiol of the question,
whether'it' be proper to continue .or abolish
the :Cheroke'. Guard.
Mr. John BHoard Paine alsc, a gentle-
man well known to the, literary world,.has
been arrested under the suspicion, of his
having conspired with IRoSs, against the
welfare ofGeorgia, and it is said that his
papers gives evidence,.of the. fact. We
have no precise information on the subject;
but we fear that, this gentleman has suifer-
ed .tinjstice, .fi'om ,the. excited, temper of
the times. :An authentic reportt, of these

THE FRENCH ,QUE'STloN.-Our relations
with France are assuming an interesting
and important aispect.. The Globe of Thurs-
day has an official article on the subject,
which is taken as. a fair representatiOn of
the views of~the government at Washing-
ton. 'The statement by the Globe of the
.present attitude ,of th, question, corres-
ponds almost word for word with the state-
ment which "appeared in the Sunday Morn-
ing News some two weeks ago. It is as-
serted, in sutbstance,:by thel official paper,
that every explanation" which would, be
requ~iired of this government, or given by it,

has already been tendered to the govern-
ment of France.; further, that the president
has, in express terms, made known to the
French cabinet liis approbation of the ex-
planatory letter; of Mr. Livingston ; and,
still more, that'he has expressly disavowed
the construction attempted to be put upon.
the message of the last year, by the factions
on both sides of the Atl'ntic. 'What more'
could be asked or expected from our gov-
ernment? The government of France, in-
stead of meeting our overtures and seeking
to fulfil the stipulations of the treaty of 1831,
as approved by the indemnity bill of 1835,
have preserved an obstinate and I:isulting
silence on the subject.. They make no
overtures for an adjustment of the contro-
versy, and they do noteven deign to notice
the, explanation l rich they invited."
..Under these circonstances, Iwe repeat
what we said some weeks ago, that a strong
expression .-of feeling on,, this subject mhay
be looked for in; the, forthcoing 'message
of the president. At the same time, we -do

wrecks, and that the salvage will amount to
near $200,000. Many lives were lost-sev-

Among them thirteen, in the Pedee. Most
of these disasters are,impud to the absence
of lights on the coast, orhe existence of
such as serve only as dangerous decoys.

of the lantern on Cape Hatteras light-house,

while repairing the upp r deck and fitting
up a new lantern, there will be no light

GooD AvvrcV.-In one of the squire
courts of New York, a blacksmith, who
had the gift of stammering to perfection,
was called in a court as a witness between
two journeymen of his in a law suit, the
amount in question being about seventy-
five cents. The Judge, after hearing his
testimony, asked him why he did not ad-
vise his workmen to settle, the cost being
five times the amount of the disputed sum.
In reply the witness observed-"- I t-t-told
the foo-o-o-ls to s-s-s-settle; I s-s-s-said
the c-c-c-constables would t-t-t-ake their
c-c-c-coats, the 1-1-1-lawyers their s-s-shirts,
and if they got into your Honor's c~c-court,
you'd s-s-s-skin 'em."

verdict of three hundred and fifty dollars

above salvo for "love unrequited," the
editor of the New England Review thus
consoleth the fair lady:--"Dry up your
tears, Harriet: three hundred and'fifty dol-
lars does not grow on every bush; besides,
as Charity Vance said, 'the hide and tal-
low of an old ox will buy a young steer.'"

Old Mrs. Grimes still lives,, good soul,
Her age is just four-score-
Her stockings are of woolen blue
In weight half pound, no more.
Old Mrs. Grimes still goes to'church
On sunshine days or rainy-.-
Her umberrell has just eight sticks
Clean patch'd with colors many.
Old Mrs. Grimes don't spend her time
In gadding, but in thinking--
She'll make a keg of good spruce beer
And bottle it for drinking.
Old Mrs. Grimes with politics,
Ne'er lays her brain a tax on--
She's neither Tory nor a Whig,
But SOME inclined to, Jackson.
Old Mrs. Grimes had children once,
But they.are dead, God bless 'em-
In homespun clothes, all clean and neat,
S. She always used to dress 'em.
Old Mrs. Grimes, each Sunday morn,
Would wipe her babies noses,
She had a great big currant bush,
But on it grew no roses.
Old Mrs. Grimes gets up each morn,
Whenwaken'd from her dreams-
She knows well when the kettle boils,
Because it always steams.

A MEAL IS A MEAL.--A traveller, some
time ago, stopped at a. tavern in Rhode
Island, at the decline of the day, when his
appetite began to be rather clamorous, and
asked for a cold cut-at the same time
prudently inquiring the price. "Twenty-
five cents," replied mine host. That's
rather high," returned the other, "as I
merely wanted a cold bite." "No matter
for that," replied mine host, "a meal is a
meal, and I never charge less than twenty-
five cents." "Well, if that be the case,"
replied the traveller, I may as well have
a meal cooked." Accordingly the gridiron
was placed over the coals and a steak of
respectable dimensions was soon broiled
and placed on the table. The stranger sat
down, and like the man who works by the
job, soon dispatched the steak, together
with the accompaniments, and called for
more, observing at the same time, a meal
, is a animal, you know." Another steak of
goodly siee was forthwilth cooked and pla-
ced before him. This also disappeared in
a short time, and yet unsatisfied, the trav-
eller bawled for more, still repeating, "a
meal is a .meal, sir." A steak larger than
either of the former, was now cooked and
without the least appearance of satiety in
the eater, sent to accompany the rest, and
the demand, was reiterated for more, ac-
companied as usual, with the unlucky
phrase of mine host, a mneal is a meal,
sir." Thus mine hostess was kept cook-
ing for full two hours, and steak after steak
disappeared with the most appalling des-
patch, each time accompanied with that ill
omened sentence, a meal is a meal, you
know;" until at last, the inn-keeper, hope-
less of satisfying his guest, and heartily
sick of the operation of his own rule, told
the traveller, if he would quit then, he
would, charge him nothing for what he hrd
eaten; to which the other feeling that he
could not hold out muchulonger, consented
without much show of reluctance, and
merely added, as he was washing down
the last morsel with a mug of cider, "a
meal is a meal, you will recollect."
"most respectfully submit to you, oh. men
of weathercock hearts, the following true
document, upon which an unfortunate
swain was condemned to pay for a breach
of promise, in the Ohio court. Its pathos
is beyond praise, and being warranted
genuine, it must bming tears into all eyes:

HE. SUBSCRIBER, having purchased
The Southern friculturalist from its late
Editor and proprietor. Mr. John D. Legare
solicits the supportI' the friends of Agricul-
ture, and of the interests connected with it,
throughout the Southern States. He had
published this work for, Mr. Legare fro*. ite
commencement, in the year 1828, aw mhe ist
thus practically ',quainted.with the mode is
which it should 1q conducted. Its publicae d
tion will be contitied cn the sa pb terms and
in the same manner as heretofore with such:
improvements as his experience may sugest.
As the subscriber is solicitous to mak this
Journal the vehiclfor dissemminating useful
information, not only with regard to estab-
lished systems of husbandry, but also experi-
mental efforts in Agriculture and sorticul.
ture, he invites free and unrestricted commu--
nication from all persons occupied: in these'-
pursuits. Let no oaie imagine that solitary
facts or isolated experiments are too trivial, to
be communicated. 'All systematic knowvl-
edge is but the aggregate of humble particu-
lars; and Science, in every department, is
brought to perfection, not through the instriu-
mentality of a single extraordinary mind, biut
by tihe d'ontributioO of particulars by many
individuals, and geh4er&ll after, the lapse of
many years, he is dfsirous, therefore, to have
as many facts t&Lred as can belfurnished ;
and from the ff-'ft who is systematic in
his experimental labor, an.. atemount of his
failures as well a ili successfula efforts, w ill
be acceptable. If the lastare worthy of being
recorded that they may be imitated, the first
should be noted in order to be shunned.
The subscriber hopes, that this appealto his
fellow citizens of the South1 will not lw in
vain. It would be a reproach to our Planters
to meet the fate of the Southern Review. Of
the last it may be justlv said, that it was suf<
fered to fall, when it vas not obhly 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 upoin us out of our
section of country. The "Southern Agri-
culturalist" in some measure supplies Ithe'
place of the SOuthern Review, !so far s; re-
gards the circumstances last alluded to. If
serves as a Register riot only of methods of
Husbandry, but also of fabts. relating r to our
system of Slavery. The subiect4 of The deci-
pline, the treatment, the characters of our
Slaves, are fairly suited ito 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
fe&l a legitimate interest in our concerns.,,
The subscriber begs leave, 9n conclusion
to remark. that if he haAknot undertaken to
continue the publication K 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 onn the Pecuniary but
the Literary Contributions of Southern Plan-
ters. He confidently now leaves this matter
in their haids, feeling a fifull assuance that
there is wanting on the partot our Planters,
neither the liberality nor mental energies ne-
cessary to sustain the Southern Agriculturist.

HE Sunday Morning News has now been
before the public for upwards of three
months, and if any criterion can be drawn
from the number of its patrons and subscrib-
ers, it has met with a flattering,acceptance,
and the principles it has been guided by in
its management, have been approved and
sanctioned. As a consequelne of its increas-
ed circulation, its advertising friends have
come toward in large numbers ; and, as it may
now be considered fairly afloat, and rising on
the tide of public favor, it aflords an admiral
ble vehicle for the dissemination of such in-,
telligence as those engaged in business wish
to communicate to their correspondents and
The number of papers supplied to casual'
enquirers, in addition to the regular subscri-
bers, on Sundays, is very great, and is con-
stantly increasing; which is another proof of
popular approbation, and a sign of the attrac-
tive character of its general and miscellane-
ous contents.
Under these favorable circumstances the
Sunday.,orni'n;g News 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 wiillbe 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
1to on this score--and the wish of the proprie-
tor, as it has bben 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, a n d necessary for a correct appreciation
of passing evenfits.
Theipopu1larity now enjoyed by this journal,
will be the best guarantee for a.careful adhe-
rence .to the means by which it was acquired ;
and the patronage hitherto extended towards
it, the most flattering, encouragement to a
perseverance in the same course.
