'Tis sweet to believe of the absent we love ;
If We miss them below, we shall meet them
The departed the departed !
They visit us in dreams;
And they glide above our memories,
Like shadows over streams ,
But where the cheerful lights of home
In constant lustre burn,
The departed-the departed
Can never more return.

Earlier! my dear lady Grace, Sir Bil-
ly has been dead this three or four weeks."
True, true, Mr. Ef'ank-he died very
suddenly poor man-kit I always predict-
ed it. However, I ar sorry for this disap-
pointment of yours; but the colonel has
been so assiduous in his attentions, how
could I refuse hln ? These military gen-
tlemen have a way "0ith them indeed!-
Dear Mr. Frank, I'shill remember you as
long as I live; I KnoV how devoted you
are, and if the colonel should ever getkill-
ed in the wars, why fhen, of course, you
are my next husband.! Frank could not
restrain himself from artintg up and vow-
ing to challenge Col. lashqagger, bdi La-
dy Grace protested ii the most posil e
manner that she would not hear of a du:eI.
His next vow was to bve Lady Grhce no
more, but this was ai ineffectual as'he
first; he soon discovered she had pnoreg'
power over him than iver, since his love
continued tunabated though circumstances
that seemed calculated to inspire a far dif-
ferent feeling. Frank thought it. the strong-
est conjecture of events in [the world, but
he was convinced that Lady Grace loved
him-how could he help it? Lady Grace
had such a bewitching smile, and such an
engaging air, and talked so charmingly,
and manifested so deep a regret for his
misfortunes, and was so polite, and good
natured, and sincere. She is the most
beautiful, fascinating, tantalizing creature
in the world," said he," and the colonel is
not bullet-proof, so --."
With this assurance, therefore, that La-
dy Grace was an angel, and that Col. Flash-
dagger might be killed Frank shrugged
his shoulders, and let j44lind misfortune
pass. The colonel went the wars, and
had his head shot off by a cannon ball.-
"Now," quoth Frank, my time is come ;
nobody shall anticipate me by having less
scruple in wiping awat a widow's tears!"
So without losing a moment's time, he
hurried to Lady Grace, and claimed the
fulfilment of he" promise. -
Lady Grace receivd-d'him in the most
obliging'manner possi)e, and Frank thot'
her a great deal hands ner than ever. I
beg ten thousand paions, my dear Mr.
Mildardour," said slh, but there is a cir-
cumstance which I cannot control; I would
it were otherwise. You are the man of all
the world that I most esteem ; but the co-
lonel, poor man! has laid a solemn injunce
t tion on me, by his will, to marry his second
r cousin, Tom Starling, on gain of forfeiting
- his whole estate. What can I do, my dear
r, Mr. Frank, 'tis such an awkward affair ?-
t Do you know Tom ? he is a queer creature,
, sings a splendid song, they say-but I am
- sorry for you with all my heart."
Oh, Lady Grace! Lady Grace ex-
t claimed Frank.,
"Really, Mr. Mildardour, I feel quite as
r much grieved at as you-] do indeed; you
e are such an excellent man. But you will
, not deprive us of your company ; we shall
- have such delightful concerts; quite charm-
y ing, I assure you."
t My dear Lady Grace," said Frank
e wringing his hands, what 1 1/become of.
h "Oh, Mr. Frank, you know I have the,
greatest regard for you ; aid if Tom, who
a is a fiery, choleric fellow, should ever' be
4 shot in a duel, why then, positively, Mr.
t Frank, nothing can prevent it-you must
Sbe my next husband."
4 Frank ran away from her in despair, and
, made another vow riot. to think any more
of Lady Grace; but he only thought the
e more of her on that account. She was
Such a sweet creature, indeed, that the
Shop of possessing her might have support-
r ed a man through a thousand mishaps.-
- But Frank began to think himself do6med
- irrevocably to disappointment, and fell in-
i to a desperate melancholy. He set off for
, the continent,, traversed France and Italy,
r and got to Naples in a fit of the most dole-
ful dumps that ever clouded the brains of a
haples lover. He was just about to throw
himself into the crater Of Vesuvius, when,
She received intelligence that Mr. Tom
SStarlirfg had died suddenly of a surfeit, at
, a harmonic celebration of the Anniversary
Sof the Sons of Thunder.
S "There is still a chanceleft," said Frank,
as,he ordered post horses for his return,
"Ye Gods! annihilate both space and time !"
But the Gods refused to do any such thing,
and Frank arrived too late. Lady Grace
had given him up for lost and was engaged
to Mr. William James, late of the city, a
rich banker, just retired from business.
Poor Mr. Frank "Mildardour !-there
seemed nothing wanting to overwhehnlm
him. He did not wait upon Lady Grace
to extort a renewal of her promise, but
abandoned himself to his melancholy, con-
ceiving his case to be utterly hopeless.'
When things are at the worst, however,
they are sure to mend. Passing along Ox-
ford street one afternoon, he saw a great
crowd collected before a new building, and
by dint of inquiries, soon learnedthe par-
ticulars of the accident that had assembled
it. He flew like lightning to Lady Grace.
Lady Grace," said he, you are once
more a widow!"
"It cannot be, Mr. Mildardour. How a
widow? Mr. James walked out in perfect
health oat hilfan fibur ago."
Exactly, my dear Lady Grace-I am
sorry to be the bearer-ahem!-of such ill
news; but 1 will tell you just how it hap-
pened. Mr. James was walking along Ox-
ford street, arm-in-arm with Sir Harry
"Ah the very man; Sir Harry is'always
here. Sir Harry is quite ariend of mine ;
but go on, Mr. Frank, with -.our relation." (
." Mr. James, I say my dear Lady Grace,
happened to pass ne~r the scaffolding of a
building just as the'workmen were hpist- 1
i, a huge stone, whe'ra horse in the street .
. ta hig fright, ran against the scaffoldiing *
"the stpie fell-and oh, Lady Grace !---Mr.
Jameir.was killed on the spot!. 'J
Dear me Mr. Mildardour you don't
say so!" ,
"Positively true. 1 saw him with my i
Lady Grace put her handkerchief to her (
eyes, and there was a dead silence for some t
time; at last Frank thought it time to re-
mind her of his purpose, by saying- t
"Lady Grace you know your promise ?" i
"My dear Mr. Frank, there is only one
obstacle in the way-I have a promise to /
Sir Harry Wildgoose-it was only last f
week: 'tis an unfortunate thing-but if Sir
Harry dies, then upon my honor, you shall,
truly and positively be my next husband." ,.P
On your honor ?" :
On myhonor." :
Then, my dear Lady Grace, I am the
happiest man in the world, for the same -
stone has killed both of them! t
Lady Grace started with surprise: her P
feelings I need not attempt to describe, for
how few can guess what it is to lose two
husbands at a single blow! I am the hap-
piest man in the world," repeated Frank. tI
Lady Grace looked upon him in a manner A
that left it dubious whether a smile or a
tear was to follow; but she was fairly
;caught. Frank loved her, and she-who
can doubt it?-had always loved him.-b- b
They were married at St. George's, Hano- t
ver Square ; but lam unable to say wheth-
er Lady Grace has made a further appoint- tl
ment of her next husband. b
'Tis wearisome to think
What troubles time may bring.
There are times when affliction and mis-
fortupe weigh heavily upon man-- when
disappointment sears tile heart, and the
keen stings of agony pierce the inmost soul.
It is then, we pine in sorrow, and yield to
the bitterness of despondency. A wreck-
lessness of life follows, and the most tender
and refined feelings become callous and
subservient to the canker that gnaws upon
the heart, freezing up the channels of af,
fection and love. MAlisbfortiune is the eart-
ly portion of all. The youth as he.arIves
to manhood feels a indefimabre som01ethi ng
Vafutiit-e years .expl)lains. aMid the aged
an-tifioary headed'veteran, whose head is
covered with the frost of eighty winters,
welcomes the tomb, his only resting place
from earthly grief and sorrow. True there
are bright and flowery pictures in life:-
fora brief space of time they are enjoyed
by all-by the rich man, revelling in luxu-
ry, and by, the poor man pining in poverty.
But are there no sorrows to succeed, which
cloud and furrow the brow, and throw the
mantle of despondency over the evanes-
cent shadows ? Look at the world. He
-who once sported in pleasure's bowers,
and revelled in luxury-he who imagined
that the future could bring no grovelling
reverse of fortune, is now an outcast-a
grief struck and helpless wretch, exposed
to the taunting jeers of those who once cra-
vingly sought and enjoyed his bounty ; and
he who once felt the piercing demands of
want-he, who, in the anguish of a heart
overburdened with grief, almost cursed the
hour of his existepnce-the being who
sought in humility the very crumbs that
fell from the rich man's table, is now 'the
lordly aristocrat, refusing the very comfort
which poverty, in other days had compell-
ed him to seek. What is wealth, when the
possessor sinks in the grave ? 'Tis a mere
nothing--the prodigal heir clutuches it,
and clothes the world and himself in mis-
ery and sorrow. What is power, when
cares and fears alternately threaten its hol-
der's stability ? What is famre, when the
vain wretch who has acquired it, after years
of study arid vexation, descends to the
loathsome tombl? A mere bubble, that
bursts when the frail tenement ceases to ex-
ist. And what are all our aspirations-
our ardent longings and desires, but the
looking forward to a goal, which, like the
dagger that crossed the vision of Macbeth,
disappears when grasped at.
CORRECT SENTIMENTS.-In an address,
delivered by Gen. Samuel Smith, the May-
or Baltimore, to the civil officers of that ci-
ty, we notice the following just and repub-
lican sentimeots---would that they could be
acted upon in the, administration of the af-
fairs of government generally.
'',You have been regularly appointed to,
yoiir several offices, and I shall expect that
you without fear or affection perform the

MY NEXT HUSBAND.
Lady Grace Gayton was-I should sa
is, but that would be adopting the style un
historical; she was, then, a charming
young person whom one could not hel
loving. She has been copied for the he
roine of a score of modern romances, jus
as Charles Lamb sat to a portrait painted
for a series of the British Admirals: read
ers of books seldom know whom they ar
admiring. Lady Grace was as good na
tured as she was beautiful. I am certain]
that, like uncle Toby, she would not wil
lingly have harmed a fly. All the work
knew-Lady f ace's good nature; all th,
world, therefore, were astonished at he
treatment of Frank Mildardour.
Poor Frank! I never, knew a man sF
deeply in love: he existed only in he
smiles: he would have attempted any ex
ploitto gratify the slightest ofher whims
a word from her would have made hin
fight a windmill, travel to Timbuctoo, o
study German metaphysics. Frank ha
never loved any other woman than Lad;
Grace ; his love had all the zeal and sin
cerity of a first attachment, all the intensi
ty and devotedness of an absorbing pas
sion. Poor Frank! I say again ; every bo
dy [sympathised with him, and declared
that if he could not command success, h(
certainly studied to deserve it." Howev-
er, let us defer moralising till we come t(
the end of the story.
Frank and Lady Grace had been on fa
miliar terms for many years: it was utter
ly impossible for the heart of the young la
dy not to respond to the wishes of so ar-
dent a lover-a passion that had grown
with his growth, and strengthened with hiz
strength. In plain terms, she positively
loved Frank; how could she help it? she
had so good a heart, and so sweet a tem-
per They were certainly destined for
each other, and every body pronounced
that nothing on/earth could part then, for
Lady Grace bestowed her sweetest smiles
upon Frank, and Frank became the shadow
of Lady Grac but every body was some-
what mistaken. I don't know, by the way,
a less infallible personage tlan that same
Never was an enterprise so promising as
that jof Frank in making love to Lady
Grace. She had a d cided penchant for
him at the very beginning, and her esteem
for him did but increase on every moment's
acquaintance, for Frantlwas one of the best
of men. Never did a 'ourtship promise a
more happy consurnmition: nearly every
thing was settled, and Fi'ank was only wait-
ing for Lady Grace to atne the happy day.
Well, my dear Lady Grace," said Frank,
with the utmost impatience, at his next vis-
it, when is the hour i) be that shall make
me the happiest of inen ?-Thursday, I
hope, or Friday-or nqxt week at farthest."
"My dear Frank," replied she in some
confusion, "I am the most unfortunate
creature in the world; you are certainly
one of the best -6f meri; it is so unlucky-
1,am shockingly grieved on your account;
but it is so unlucky that you did not make
your proposals sooner."
What do you mean, Lady Grace ?"
said Frank in the greatest alarm.
,, Dear me Mr. Frank, I am afraid that
you never will forgive me," replied the la-
dy, with the sweetest smile imaginable ;-
' but the truth is, I have already promised
my hand to Sir Billy Rattle."
* "Sir Billy Rattle!" said Frank in un-
Yes, Sir Billy Rattle ; you "know Sir
Billy; he is the most amusing creature in
the universe ; positively I think he'll make
me die with laughing, one of these days:
however, 'tis a pity for your sake that it has
happened so, and I have the most sincere
esteem for you, Mildardour :but Sir Billy
has such a fascinating way that he abso-
lutely won my consent before I was aware
of what I had promised him. La! me!
tisa most awkward affair-I know what
0ou will say, but it can't be helped; Sir
Billy insists upon the promise; he is a
Frank could hardly believe his ears
while listening to this astounding recital.
[n any other case, he would have explod-
ed with a torrent of reproaches and impre-
rations; but Lady Grace had such a sweet
.nmd affable manner, displaying such a
charming affability while condoling him
mn his ill luck, and expressed such real re-
,ret at the occurrence, that it was impossi-
)le to feel the smallest anger against her.-
n spite of all, therefore, Frank loved her
is strongly as ever.
Ah! my dear Lady Grace," said he
vith 4 sigh, I must submit, since
lesthdy rn have it so ; but to live without
ou is impossible-I will live no longer."
"Nay, miy dear Mr. Frank," replied she,

trow*,yourself-you must not, for my
The good, the brave, the beautiful!
How dreamless is their sleep,
Where rolls the dirge-like music
Of the ever-tossing deep:
Or where thedmournfull night-winds
Pale Winter's robes have spread,
Above their narrow palaces,
In the cities of the dead! ,
I look around and feel the awe
Of one who walks alone
Among'the Wreck of former days,
In dismal ruin strown.
I start to hear the stirring sounds
From the leaves of withered trees;
Tor the voice of the. departed
Seems borne upon the breeze.
That solemn voice it mingles with
Each gay and careless strain-
I scarce can think Earth's minstrelsy
Will cheer my heart again.
The glad-song of the Summer waves,
The thrilling notes of birds,
Can never be so dear to me
As their rememb ed words.
I sometimes dream their pleasant smiles
Still on me sweetly fall:
Their tones of love I faintly hear .I,
My name in sadness call. .wv
I know that they are happy,
With their angel plumage on,
But my heart is very desolate,
To think that they are gone !
[From the Boston Pearl.]
0 THIS IS NOT MY HOME.
O this is not my home !
I miss the glorious sea,
Its white and sparkling foam,
And lofty melody.
All things seem strange to me-,
I miss the rocky shore,
Where broke so sullenly
The waves with deafening roars
The sands that shone like gold
Beneath the blazing sun,
O'er which the waters rolled,
'Soft chanting as they run :
,And O the glorious.sight!
Ships *ving to and fro,
,Like birds upon their flight-
So silently they go!
1 climb the mountain's height,
And vainly gaze around-,
No water cheers my sight,
I hear norushino- sound.
THURSDAYY, DECEMBER 10.
During a few days past, our town has been
the stirring scene of busy preparation for a
campaign on the Indian Frontier. By the
last accounts, the Indians evince a determi-
nation and preparation for hostilities little an-
ticipated. The. friendly chiefs, (or such as
professed themselves friendly) are said to
have removed from lt Fort and joined the
hostile tribes, with 'the exception of two or
three immediate dependants of Charles
O'Mathla, who, it will be recollected, was a
few days since murdered. They have retir-
ed in a body to a large swamp' near their vil-
lages, and are carrying their wives and chil-
dren to places of security. They are report-
ed to have made arnittack upon a party of
whites, and' plundere and Burnt two or three
more plantations. ,
In obedience to the call of General Clin
who has the commAn6 of the U. S Trooper
Gen. Hlernandez has ordered out-iLtie Militia.i
Col. Warren left this place yesterday morn-
ing at the head of his regiment, leaving on-
ly a number sufficient for the protection of
the posts near this. Every man is enroled
for the service on the Frontier, or for service
at home. At such a time as this, a great
want of muskets is felt. Such as have rifles,
have taken them" But a great part have
been compelled to take their fowling pieces,
or such guns as they could lay their hands
upon. There has been an alacrity in their
preparations, creditable to all, and particular-
ly to the officers who have directed the move-
ments. We hope, that by such a timely dis-
play of militia, the Indians will 'be induced
to abandon their intention of further hostili-
ties, and submit to the stipulations of the
Treaty made at Payne's Landing, without
We have received the first number of a
new paper published at Tallahassee, called
the Tallahassee Gazette and General Ad-
vertiser." It is the largest sheet issued in
Florida. Its typographydis very. neat. We
hail it with pleasure as an indication of the
increasing prosperity of that rich section of
our Territory. We think the Editor must
have had an unusually activePrinter's Devily
or he never could have fared his readersin
his first number, with so large a quantity and
variety of blunders and errors. Doubtless he
considered the injunction of Horbace, hot to
promise too much at first. As he has room
for improvement, we say go ahead." As
far as we are concerned, we will mete to him
"the spirit of gentleness and magnanimity
due to professional juvenility," should-his sub-
sequent efforts seem to require it.
PAPER MADE OF PEAT.-One of the New
York papers contains a notice of paper made
of peat. (a substance resembling turf, used in
Europe for fuel.) The transformations of art
are little less wond ful than those of nature,
were not its operations more familiar to us.
The sheet, on which is imprinted that en-
graving so beautiful, or those lines so fairly
t d.lhas undergone changes from the green
rin Btax, or the beautiful golden cotton-flow-
.er, scarcely less than those which convert
the catapillar to the gaudy butterfly, or the
acorn to the gigantic oak. To see the neat
white sheet arising out of the peat-turf, is al-
most equal to the fabled Phenix, animating
the ashes of its mother. Of what is not the
human mind capable of transforming and
The highest mountain in the U. States is
said to be found in North Carolina. The lof-
tiest peak of the Black Mountain in Yancey
county intliat State, is found tobe more than
200 feet above Mount, Washington in New
Hampshire, hitherto accounted the highest
mountain in the Union. This State appears
to be late in unfolding its mineral treasures.
A diamond, said to be real on examination by
geologists, was recently found there..
Governor M'Duffie, in his message to the
Legislature of South Carolina, enlarges upon
the slave question. He statesjis opinions
freely, boldly and eloquently .. e may give
some extracts hereafter, that our readers may
judge of the soundness of his views.
CORN.-Mr. Asael -Refftck lately received
the premium, awarded by the agricultural so-
ciety of Pickaway county, Ohio, for the best
acre of corn. The product of the acre was
one hundred and fifty seven bushels!
There was a rumor of a combination among
the blacks for evil purposes at this time. But
we are authorized to say that there was not
sufficient foundation to cause the alarm.
No foreign news of importance since aoux
ing the above circumstances, and thinking
it was some deranged person, did not at-
tempt to arrest him. Upon enquiry of the
negroes, they told lim that the man had
been shot and wanted them to give him a
knife to lick the hot out. Here ended
this affair. A few lays afterward, Short
offered his servicesas a wood chopper to a
man living "about 150 miles below, who
was without a family, with the exception
of a negro woma4I He took Short back /
into the woods t show him his work,
-Short following behindd with his axe.-
When they had pot far enough from the
house for the purpose, Short struck his
employer with tie edge of the axe, split-
ting his head completely open and laying
him dead at his ieet. The monster then
returned to the hc.se aid attacked the ne-
gro woman, She attempted to make her
escape through the window, but he seized
her by the clothe and cried out to her

him by leaving portion of her clothes in

hailed and the owier of the flat boat sent
his skiff ashore anI took Short on board,
The boat was larned, and the owner sent
one of the hands shore to give informa-
tion. The murder was suspicious, and
attempted to makehis escape in a pirouge,
but the boatman sezed an axe and held it
threatingly over hishead, and told him that
he moved at his peil. The citizens soon
came on board ane secured him. This
was on last Thursdat week, the 29th ult.-

THE HAT *%UFACTURE IN AMERICA.
By a calculate made a few weeks since,
it appears that the amount of hats manu-
factured in the United States in. one year
exceeds sixteen milions of dollars. There
are, it is estimated, upwards of twenty-five
thousand persons employed in the busi-

seven millions of dollars.

which time she has made sixty-three pas-

The following horrid recital is contained

FREDERICKSRBU VA., Nov. 21, 1835.
Messrs. Editors Allow me through the
medium of your per, to inform you of a
most horrid butchery which our town has
just witnessed. Last night there was a
general rebellion among the free and slave
negroes of this place, but by the help of
Providence we have been fortunate enough
to quell it so far. About 12 o'clock, or
thereabouts, Mlr. Jenkins, a sadler, was
aroused from his mid-nightslumber by the
most worried and heart piercing screams
from his daughter's apartment, adjoining
his own. He and his wife immediately
sprang from their bed and ran to ascertain
the cause of the screams. When he went
in, he discovered his daughter vainly de-
fending lhrs.-ifCfrom the ferocious thrusts
of a servant man, who was armed with a
large carving knife. He inivdiatey rani
to his daughter's assistance, but was instant-
ly felled to the ground by another negro,
armed with an axe. His wife saved her-
self by jumping from the second story win-
dow, but with the loss of both legs, brok-
enM The negroes, in the mean time, sup-
posingo their work of death was done, left
the premises and went in search of Mrs.
Jenkins, who was taken into a neighbor's
house by a person passing by at the time
of the screams. Mr. Jenkins had his'left
arm broken, but was not seriously hurt in
any other place. He immediately issued
forth and gave "the alarm just in time to
save the whole town from being butchered,
as there was a large party coming from
Stafford county to reinforce the town ne-
groes, but a number of young men coming
promptly with arms even at the late hour
of the night, marched out and cut off the
country negroes, and coming unawares
upon thera, fired a volley of balls into them,
and killed seven, wounded twelve, and
took twerty-eight prisoners, all of whom
were lodged in jail to await their trial.
P. S.-1 have just time to say that the
two negroes have been taken who murder-
ed Mr. Ji's daughter, and attempted his
own life, and were promptly Lynched."
ANOTHER ABSCONDING CASHIER.-The
New Orleans papers offer a reward of

Description of his person.---Babcock is a
native of Rhode Island, is about five feet
six or eight inches high, is of a sickly ap-
pearance and sallow complexion, has dark
hair, large dark eyes, high forehead, and
large prominent nose.
CONSUMPTION OF COTTON.-In the year
1770 the annual consumption of Cotton in
British manufactures, was under four mil-
lions of pounds weight, and that of the
whole of Christendom was probably not
mord than ten millions. Last year (1834)'
the consumption in Great Britain and Ire-
land was about 270 millions of pounds,
and that of Europe and the United States
together 480 millions.
RAIL ROAD IN CUBA.-It appears that in
Cuba a rail road was in pro ress, in order
to connect Havana with the iUterior. It is
under the superintendence of Engineers
from the United States. The planter looks
forward to its completion with great satis-
faction, as it will add much to the value
of his property.

pouring rapidly through Arkansas, towards
the rich country of the Red River. The
road onward from Memlphis, Tenn., is li-
terally alive with the moving caravans

'He who examines human life with at-
tentive eyes, will find that it is chiefly made
up of trifling incidents and petty occurren-
ces; that our warmest wishes are often ex-
cited by objects of no particular moments;
and our greatest afiflictions arise from be-
reavements or disappointments,which prop-
erly considered, should not occasion a sigh.
The distresses of mind of most common
occurrences are but insect stings, which
smart for a moment, and are over; and the
vast majority of earthly pleasures are ex-
perienced in the persuit of some unreal
good, alluring at a distance, but despised as
soon as won. The bubble that charred
by its beautiful rotundity and crystal brigh-
ness, turns to water in grasp ; and the pros-
pect thatfrom afar seemed green with ver-
dure and rich iruitage,'on near approach,
is found to be chequered with the same di-
versity which characterized the scenes that
were previously passed.
The only tbfountain in the wilderness of
life, where man may drink of waters total-
ly unmixed with bitterness, is that which
gushes forth in the calm and shady reces-
ses of domestic love. Pleasure may beat
the heart into artificial excitement; ambi-
tion may delude it with its golden dream ;
war may indurate its fine fibres, and di-
minish its sensitiveness; but it is only do-
mestic love that can render it happy.
It has been justly remarked by an anci-
ent writer, that of the actions which claim
our attention, the most splendid are not al-
ways the greatest; and there are .few hu-
man beings who are not aware, that those
outward circumstances of pomp and afflu-
ence which are looked on with admiration
and envy, seldom create happiness in the
bosoms of the possessors. It is in the utin-
restricted intercourse of the domestic cir-
cle, where heart, the real enjoyment most
experienced at all ; not in treading the
complicated labyrinth of politics; not
amidst the glare of fashion, nor surround-
ed by the toils of state.
Like the poor player, when his hour of
mimic greatness is passed, even the rulers
of the earth eagerly strip themselves, when-
ever an interval ofease is afforded, of the
artificial ornaments and disguises that in
public they are forced to wear, but which
areshown to be incumbrances by the alac-
rity they evince in dispensing with them.
From the privacy of home they issued in-
to public life; the privacy of home they
revisit, whenever occasion permits: arid
not even the "round and top of power"
can totally allure their mental vision from
the contemplation ofits soul-satisfying joys.
The greater part of most men's lives is
spent in domestic scenes and familiar em-
ployments ; it is wise therefore, so to live,
that those hours may glide along in tran-
quil brightness, which the breath of flatte-
ry cannot dimple, nor the gaudy light of
pleasure gild. To be happy at home, is
goal of all our wishes; it is the object for
which ambition pants and industry labors;
but which cannot be attained, unless ardor
be repressed by prudence, and virtue be
joined with diligence.
NATCHES, Nov. 9.-A HORRIBLE TRAG-
EDY.-A man by the name of William H.
Short, who has been an inhabitant of one
of the Penitentiaries of the Western States,
having been sentenced for four years, but
liberated on account of his good behavior
while there, at the expiration of twenty
months, about three weeks ago hired him-
self to a man living at the Cowpens, a few
miles above this city, as a wood chopper.
He was taken to the woods and set to
work, and having felled a tree, complained
of being unwell and quit work, and asked
in the'eveming permission to sleep in the
dwelling house. He had the appearance
ance of having been out during the preced-
ing night in the rain. His request wa
granted, and he was placed in a room with
a son of the owner of the house, and anoth-
er wood chopper. The old man andAhis
wife slept in an adjoining ?room. Duiring
the night, Short got up and went put sev-
eral times; the last time he came in, he
left the door open. The son, who relates
this portion of the story, says, the next re-
collection was hearing a scream from his
mother, and upon raising himself in bed,
fiound that he had been stunned by a blow,
given with an axe, the head of which, as
he lay a little upon one side, struck him on
the t'r ,-.hea, pornerwise, cutting out a tri-
angular piece to the skidll. He sprang
from the bed, seized a shot gun and rush-
ed to his parent's rescue. He found
Short in the room stripped to the skin, who
upon seeing him with a gun fled through
the door way. The son fired at him, but
was uncertain with what effect. Upon re-
turning to the room hlie found, that the vil-
lain had attempted toq, cut his father's throat,
and had so far succeeded as to inflict a deep
gash under his chin. He had also stabbed
him in the temple and one or two other
places about the head, but gave no fatal
wound. His mother was lying almost life-
less, with two ribs broken and one of the
bones of the wrist. The other wood chop-
per, when the son was attacked, fled, and
in theact of passing the door was struck
atby Short, but the axe fortunately hit the
,op of the' door casement. On the follow-
ing day, a white person residing in the
neighborhood, saw a naked man in conver-
sation with some negroes. He approach-
ed him and spoke; the man turned rodild
and seeing the person hailing him armed
with a rifle fled. The gentleman not know-

NOVEMBER TERM, 1835.
The Grand Jury of the Counties of Co-
lumbia, Alachu and Hillsborough, in con-
cluding their duties, take occasion to con-
gratulate their fellow citizens upon the
general good order which prevails, and
the advancing prosperity of the country.
They present as a grievance, the disor-
ganized state of the Militia in this district.
The critical juncture now at hand in our
relations with the Florida Indians, has for
some tihe past rendered it essentially im-
portant and necessary to the safety and
protection of the frontier Counties, that the
Militia of the Territory should be in a state
of preparation to, meet the possible crisis
which threatens this portion of the, coun-
try, yet they regret to say that the most
marked neglect has existed on this subject.
nn'tat district composed of the
Counties from the body of which they -atre
called, is still without an organized regi-
ment. The regiment is unofficered-yet
the repeated elections of the people have
been passed, unnoticed, and the officers
elect are still without commissions. It is
unarmed-yet no steps have been taken to
procure the necessary supplies. They in-
vite the immediate attention of those whose
duty it miay be, to the subject.
They present as a further grievance, the
want of public buildings in the district
composed of their Counties.
They ask the notice of the next Legis-
lative Council of this Territory,
1st. To the propriety of allowing dama-
ges against plaintiffs in certiorari from
Justices' Courts, in cases in which it may
appear that such proceedings has been sued
out upon frivolous ground add for purpo-
ses of delay.
2d. To the evils attending the proceed-
ings in replevin, as practised in the Courts
of the Territory, and to the necessity of
regulating that action by statute.
3d. To the inadequacy of the punish-
ment affixed by law to the crime ofan as-
sault with intent to murder; and
4th. To the policy of submitting to the
,discretion of the Bench, the measure of
punishment to be iuflicted in cases in which
that discretion now by law rests upon the
Having for years observed the operation
of the revenue system of this Territory, and
being satisfied that it is inefficient, unequal,
and therefore unjust, if not absolutely use-
less, and being uninformed of any benefi-
cial result that has ever proceeded from it,
recommend to the Legislature of this Ter-
rity its entire repeal, or its alteration, so
that each County will be charged with.the
economy, the regulation, and the liability
for its own expenditures.
They ask the endeavors of the delegate
in Congress, to procure an appropriatioh
for the opening of a road from .this place
to the Mineral Springs, on Suwannee.
They represent as an injustice which
deserves immediate redress, the exclusion
of the Judge of this District from the bene-
fit of the increased salary allowed by a late
act of Congress to the Judges of this Ter-
ritory; the provision of that law which
operates,this exclusion, they cannot doubt,
was founded in ignorance of the burthen
of the duties growing out of the* adju-
dication of Land Claims in this District,
for which the extra compensation al-
lowed, forms in itself but a scanty recom-

and interesting, charge delivered to them,

A doctor visiting his patient, a lady, re-
quested to look at her tongue. She open-
ed her mouth and put the end of her tongue
out. The doctor said, put it out a little
further, madam: and was under the ne-
cessity of repeating it several times, the
lady only putting her tongue out a trifling
distance each time. At length the doctor
remarked: put it out as far as possible,
madam. Lord, doctor (says she) you must
think there is no end to a woman's tongue."
"I was going," said an Irishman, "over
Westminster Bridge the other day, and I
met Pat Hewins.-Hewins," says I, how
are you ?" "Pretty well I thank you Don-
nelly," says he, says I, "that's not my
name." "Faith; no more is mine Hew-
ins," says he. "So we looked at each
other again, and sure it turned out to be
neither of us."
"The dust is quite astonishing to-day--
surely, we had a great deal of rain yester-
dap," said a traveller in Ireland to the driv-
er of his car. Oh! is it rain, your honor,
replied the whip, bless you, sir, it's noth-
ing in Ireland, which is so dry that there
was plenty of dist on the roads the day af-
ter the Deluge."
A learned young lady being asked at a
tea-table if she used sugar, replied, I have

ders it vastly obnpxious."
WANT OF A NOSE.-A gentleman with-
out a nose was followed by an unfortunate

LAND AT ST. PABLO
THE FOLLY OF ANTICIPATING TROUBLES,.
Afflictions seen in 'prospective are more
appalling than when they actually arrive.
For there are'few but are attended by some
alleviating circumstance that deaden their
force. Why, then, should we sour the
cup of happiness, by anticipating trouble
that may never reach us, and in probabili-
ties dependent on a thousand contingent
circumstances, never likely to occur at
once. The folly" of doing so will be placed
in a stronger light by the following anec-
A country woman set 'her daughter, a
girl of fifteen, to bake, while she went to a
neighbor's. After some stay, she returned,
and found the oven sparkling hot, and her
daughter in another apartment in the great-
est agony and tears. A sight so unexpect-
ed, excited the most tender sympathy in
the maternal bosom, and solicitude for the
cause. After much entreaty, the daughter
complied.-" I was thinking," said she, if
I was married and should have a dear little
child, and it should live to run about, and
i should be baking as I now am, and I
should go out for fuel and should leave it
alone, and it should take a chair, and should
get up to the mouth of the oven, and it
should crawl in, and should burn itself to
death, all to a crisp, what a terrible thing
it would be. Oh oh dear, what should I
Let us not 'smile at the imaginary trou-
ble of the girl, while' half the ills we feel

ELOQUENCE EXTRAORDINARY.-A com-
mittee man on the construction of-a cer-
tain turnpike, once addressed the meeting
in the following language:-" Who among
you, gentlemen, can mark the onward
march'of Internal Improvement, without
cherishing feelings of pride for the present
glory of your country The stupendous

pleted, will be an additional star in the
coronet of our nation's greatness ; millions
will admire the patriotism and enterprise
of the citizens of- county; the hog
trade with Kentucky will be secured,
which will be of immense benefit to this
flourishing village, which I can already
picture as one of the proudest cities in the
world! I therefore, gentlemen,, motion

'of sufficient thickness, it retains its heat
till morning-and then, if a person is too
lazy to get up, he can' make a very good
breakfast by eating off the edges as he
We recollect to have seen some where
an anecdote of an old patriot, which is too
good to be lost. He received the first
number of a newspaper which had for its
motto-" Be just and fear not."-Shak-
speare; which he read thus:-Be just and
ifearnot Shakspeare, upon which he jump-
ed up and in a gush of patriotism aind rust-
ic simplicity exclaimed-' Blood and 'ouns!
I don't fear Shakspeare norany other tory !
Let him come on-we'll teach him a niew
game of 'IHide and Coop,' behind the
ANECDOTE.-A countryman came to
one of our hotels and wrote after his name,
P. O. P. S. F. G. Here was a title. "Pray,
my dear sir," asked a bystander, what
do those letters stand for ?" "Stand for!
why that's my title !" Yes sir-but what
is your title?" Why-Professor of Psalm-
ody and Schoolmaster from Connecticut."
A soldier flying in battle, was called to
by his comrades, "How canst thou be so
infamous ? all thy fellows witness thy dis-
grace, and cursed thee for a coward!"
* That may be," said the fugitive, but I
would rather be cursed as a living soldier,
than hlest as a dead hero."
TO THE PUBLIC. .
HE SUBSCRIBER, having purchased
The Southern Agriculturalist from, its late
Editor and proprietor, Mr. John D. Legare,
solicits the support of the friends of Agricul-
ture, and of the interests connected with t
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 m'ay suggest.
As the subscriber is solicitous to make this
Journal the vehicle for disseminating useful
information, 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, ot through the instru-
mentality of a single eirraordinary 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 Southern Review. Of
the last it may be justly said, that it was suf-
fered to fall, whern 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 four
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 noxIeaves this matter
in their hands, feeling a Tull assurance that
there is wanting on the part of our Planters,
neither the liberality nor mental energies ne-
cessary to sustain the Southern Agriculturist.

English Press, has led to preparations for is-
suing a periodical more particularly adapted
to the wants and taste of the American pub-

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, plyable in advance.
It comprises-Portraits and Biographical
Sketches of distinguiished Americans ; Views
of Public Buildings, Monuments, and im-
provements; Landscape scenery-the bound-

struction and gratification; Engravings and
descriptions of the character, habits, &c. of
Birds, Beasts, Fishes, and Insects, together
