It is spring-Nature has put on all her
charms and has decked the fields with
flowers and blossoms, exhaling the most
delicious perfume. All is gay and joyous
-see yon brilliant flower, a well watered
plant,it has sprung up in majesty and love-
liness. The dying wind plays through its
expanded foliage, breathing a melody soft
as the whispered music of Eolian harp-
and stealing and giving odour. But the
season passes away, and succeeds. The
scene is changed into a dark and dreary
waste, and the fragment flower broken
from the stem, lies faded, and scentless on
that ground. Such is man, such is cruel
fate, the destiny-brought into the world
by a kind and benificient Creator, his young
heart is elate with the blossorts of fancy-
and he seems daily to be springing into a
new existence, merely to enj)y happiness
in all its ecstacy-h0 is tend-ily alive to
every impulse of friendship acd love-he
is cheered by the whispers of hope, and
fortune smiles upon him.
But remorseless time passe on; and
mows down each bud ofyouthil fancy.-
Disappointments storm and sorow's flood
complete the wreck, rolling tlB dark tide
of desolation over his once enchanting
prospects. In all the various scenes in
which he may oct his part in the grand
drama of life,---the fate of manis material-
ly the same whether ambition beckons him
up the steep ascent, or whether he loiters
along through voluptuous patis of pleas-
ure-whether the votary of vitue and sci-
ence, or the child of ignorane, and the
worker of iniquity,-he is but the creature
of a day-with the morning he rises young
and vigorous-at noon he is powerful and
brilliant, and at eve where is he ? In dark-
ness so impenetrable that eye cannot fath-
om or theory explain it. His friends follow
him to the silent tomb, and perchance drop
a tear, as they lay his cold relics beneath
the green sod-but. do the birds sing less
sweetly, does the sun shi'e less brightly
because a worm of the dust, to dust is re-
turned? No, the tears that mourn are
soon dried. In a few short months, mem-
ory regardeth not the departed; and his
place is filled by a successor, who in his
turn feels keenly the blasts of misfortune
and the thousand natural shocks that flesh
is heir to, until death comes to his relief,
and hie too is buried in oblivion,-ambitious
life and labors are all vain.
WESTMINSTER ABEY. ,

1 rose and prepared to leav6 the Abbey.
As I descended the flight of'Steps which
led into the body of the building, my eye
was caught by the shrine of Edward the
Confessor, and I ascended the small stair-
case that conducts to it, to take from thence
a general survey of this wilderness of tombs.
The shrine is elevated upon a kind of plat-
form, and close around it are the sepulchres
of various kinds of queens. From this em-
inence the eye looks down between pillars
and funeral trophies to the chapels and
chambers below, crowded with tombs,
warriors, prelates, courtiers and statesmen,
lie mouldering in their beds of darkness."
Close by me stood the great chair of coro-
nation, rudely carved of oak, in the barba-
rous taste of a remote and Gothic age.-
The science seemed almost as if contrived,
with theatrical artifice, to produce an ef-
fect on the beholder. Here was a type of
the beginning and the end of human pomp
and power; here it was literally but a step
from the throne to the sepulchre. Would
not one think that these incongruous me-
mentor had been gathered together as a
lesson to living greatness! to show it, even
in the moment of its proudest exaltation,
the neglect and dishonor to which it must
soon arrive; how soon that crown which
encircles its brow must pass away, and it
must lie down in the dust anc disgraces of
the tomb, and be trampled upin by the feet
of the meanest of the multitude. For,
strange to tell, even the graje is here no
longer a sanctuary. There is a shocking
levity in some natures, which leads then
to sport with awful and, halbwed things,
and there are base minds, which delight to
revenge on the illustrious dead the abject
homage and grovelling servility which they
pay to the living. The coffin of Edward
the Confessor has been broken open, and
his remains despoiled, oftheir funeral or-
naumeits; th!l eptre has been stolen from.

MY WIFE, MY CAT, AND ME.
Let winter come, with chilling look,
And strip the summer bower;
He cannot rob me of my book,
Or philosophic hour;
Yes, let him come, with aspect chill,
The leaves strip from the tree,
There's three that can be happy still!
My Wife--my Cat-and Me.
The storm may howl, the snow may fall,
The frost may glitter bright;
I heed them not, while on the wall
The hearth fire shows its light;
Nor care I how the winds may blow,
If from a dun-I'm free,
For little will's.urfice, you know,
My Wife-my Cat-and Me.
The fool may pleasure take in wealth,
I envy not his pelf; ,
He's richer whose a mind in health,
Who does not fear himself;
How sweet to hope for brighter days,
Though they should never be,
While warm we sit before the blaze,
My Wife-my Cat-and Me.
And when old age with silent pace,
Strews o'er our heads the snows,
Plough furrows deep upon the face,
And steals the full blown rose,
How sweet'twill be when death shall come,
To know that when we three,
Shall sleep together in one tomb,
My Wife-my Cat-and Me.
THE SOLDIER'S GRAVE.
He sleeps : the burning breath of war
No more shall wave his purple plume,
No watching by the midnight star
Shall chill the warriors youthful bloom.
He sleeps;-the hour of mortal gain
And mortal pride alike are past;
His blood is scattered on the plain,
His cheek is withering in the blast.
A thousand storms may wander there,
May swell a thousand battle's cry-
For earth he hasno eye, nor ear;
Pain, pleasure, glory pass him by.
He sleeps the brother of the worm,
By thunder and by trump unmoved;
And is this frail and faded form
All that is left of him we loved.
Lo !-Mourner kneel and weep no more--
That faded form is not thy love-
Its hour was come, its course was o'er,
The spirit winged its way above.
And wouldst thou for his glory weep,
And grieve him with an idle tear!
Love was not born in tombs to sleep,
See yonder heaven !-thy love is there.
A STRONG VERDICT.-About the com-
mencement of the present century, a black
fellow who lived at the North End of Bos-
ton, suddenly disappeared, and it was
thought that he had drowned himself.-
Accordingly diligent search was made,
add at the end of two days, his body was
found in a dock in Charlestown. As is
usual in such cases, a jury was called to-
gether; and as the story goes, (which is
true for aught we know) they were all
'\tnen ofcolor." After some deliberation
tlfy brought in a verdict something as fol-
lo0 : "Dat- going h6mte one berry dark

ny one, solitary and alone, among them
ut not of them;" "and why," said I, when
ne of these services was over' "why do

nd love? Why suffer your afflictions to
orrode into your heart, unconsoled or end-
d by the sweet voice of woman, or wVy
efuse to double your joys by sharing tyiem

I turned away to pity his perverted feel-
ngs, but at that moment conscience whis-
)ered that he was but the image of myself.
The light ,of morning rose on the sha-
tows of the night, and that church with its
wvorshippers and their feelings'were alike
gone. My dream was ended. C.
The sensation of hunger is attributed by
most authorities to the irritation occasioned
n the coats of the stomach by the gastric :-
uice, as it is called, a liquid formed by the
stomach itself, and which possesses the
property ofrapidly dissolving such substan-
ces as are exposed to its action. That a
fluid possessing this property is actually
formed, is proved by experiments on per-
sons who through accident have had fistu-
lous openings into this organ from thesur-
face of the body. The experiments are
very curious,, and serve to show what
indeed is amply proved by other evi-
dence, that some descriptions of aliment
are much more readily dissolved in the
stomach than others. It has been suppos-
ed,that this fluid, when no foreign sub-
stance is furnished it, expends its force on
the coat of the stomach itself, and thus pro-
duces the painful sensation we term hun-
ger. Appetite, is hunger in a less degree,
but can hardly be considered a disagreea-
ble feeling. It is remarkable how much
the recurrence of this sensation is under
the dominion of habit. At whatever time
we are accustomed to dine, at that hour
the appetite comes, and we may discipline
ourselves to almost any interval between
meals which we think proper. The an-
cient Romans, even in the most luxurious
period of the Empire, had but two meals a
day-the breakfast about nine,-and the
dinner at three or four. In the earlier and
more rigid times of the republic, one meal
a day was counted sufficient. Savages,
whose supplies of food are precarious, fre-
quently eat enough at onceto last several
days; in fact Irving, in his amusing sketch-
es of the Pawnee Indians, says their rule
is to eat as long as any food remains to be
Whether one meal or three is eaten dai-
ly, probably does not much influence the.
whole quantity taken; and in civilized so-
ciety the recurrence of the social meal, by
uniting the members of a family, answers
a better purpose than the mere gratifica-
tion of sensual appetite. When the regu-
lar hour of dinner is allowed to pass by, the
appetite after a time diminishes, and even
disappears, leaving a more or less distinct
sense of uneasiness, which is not entirely
removed until another day restores the reg-
ular order of things. Mental emotion has
great influence both on appetite and diges-'
tion. The receipt of exciting intelligence,
whether agreeable or the reverse, will en-
tirely extinguish the appetite, and if food
has just been taken, will cause it to remain
undigested for a considerable time, or even
to be rejected. Hunger, when extreme, is
one of the most painful of sensations ; and
of the many instances of persons who have
attempted to starve themselves, very few
have had the courage to effect it. Men
will devour the most disgusting viands, and
even become cannibals, under the influ-
ence of this irresistable craving.
, Married on the 15th of July, at Exeter,
Mr. Joshua Stokes, of Sidbury, to Mrs. Ann
Drake Patridge, of Exeter. It is not a lit-
tle singular, and will certainly afford an
argument for fatalists in favor of their sys-
tem, that these parties who are now getting
in years, were acquainted in their youth,
and about to be united in the bonds of wed-
lock; a difference however, took place, and
they parted. After a while each got mar-
ried and in the lapse of years became sin-
gle, when the courtship was again renew-
ed, with precisely the same result as be-
fore-a quarrel and second separation,-
Each again got married, and having be-
come once more single, they resolved to
put it out of the power of caprice, or caught
but death to separate them. more, by mindis-
solubly uniting themselves in the silken
bonds of Hymen. : .
J iCKSONVILLE, EAST FLORIDA DECEMBER 17, 1835.
One of the easiest, the pron common,
and the most perfectly fo.is., things in
this world, is-to quarrel; no matter with
whom, man, woman, or chi d: or upon
what pretence, provocation occasion so-
ever. There is no kind of n* sity for it,
no0manner of use for it, and species or
eree of benefit to be gain y it. And
Ittange as the fact-may theologians
Il 1, and politicians qu 1r lawyers
'irs, and printers quarr;lthp church
puarrels, and the state t|al't14' nations
and tribesf* 4rp40 ti Womdn,
children, dogs and cats, birds and beasts,
quarrel about all manner of things, and on
all manner of occasions.
Now that a great deal of mischief comes
of this, every body sees, arid feels, and ad-
mits, but what good ? Many things, evil
in themselves, have their redeeming re-
sults, and produce at least their kernel of
wheat to the bushel of chaff, but if any bo-
dy discovers a good thing come out of a
quarrel, if he'll give us it's length, breadth,
quality, and.description, we'll insure him a
patent for it, and the credit to boot, of hav-
ing seen further into a mill stone than any
chap that ever looked into daylight east of
the Hudson. I have never heard of it, nor
heard of him who ever did hear of it, and
conceive it to be the most inconceivable of
Some things look very well in theory,
,which do not answer at all in practice;
and it is possible for a man to reason him-
self into the belief that a particular system
is right, which when reduced to practice,
will turn out entirely wrong. But neither
the theory nor the practice of quarelling is
As for the theory-molasses catches flies,
they won't come near vinegar. If people
will not listen to reason, they will seldom
hearken patiently to abuse: you may lead,
but you cannot drive men, either into the
right or wrong way. If you succeed by
an irresistible argument in .convincing a
man, and you find out that-
Convinced against his will,
He's of the same opinion still,"
there is no principle ever yet discovered in
human nature, upon which you can reach
his will, vi et armies. Men can't be made
to believe upon compulsion, so you may
just as well let go and drop him, in a good
As for the practice-if there is any thing
in the world will make a man feel bad, ex-
cept pinching his fingers in the crack of
the door, it is unquestionably a quarrel.-
No man ever'fails to think less of himself
after than he did before one-it degrades
him in his own eyes, and in the eyes of
others-and what is worse, blunts his sen-
sibility to disgrace, on the one hand, and
increases the power of passionate irratabili-
ty on the other. In short, it is the source
of unmixed and perfect wretchedness.
"The fool who folds a viper to his heart,
Acts not a wilder or a simpler part-
Than he who takes the worm-wood to his lips,
Filled with the gall of bitterness-and sips."
Wisdom is applied to the affairs of meo
in the adoption of the best means to secure
the best ends. This business ofquarelling
just reverses the proceedings; it is the ap-
plication of the worst means to secure the
worst ends. If it is really desirable that
you should make a man your enemy, you
might contrive a much more comfortable
and honorable mode of making him in the
effort. What then ? has a man wronged
you-if so, he has done himself a great
deal more mischief than he has done you-
but if the offence requires it, apply peace-
ably and quietly to your remedy at law;
don't quarrel with him. Have you been
insulted ? that only proves your antagonist
a blackguard, it does you no harm-let him
alone-don't quarrel with him. Won't
your neighbor agree with you in opinion ?
well, and you are right and he is wrong,
but if you quarrel with him about it, you
are both wrong, that's all-so don't quarrel
if you would keep in the right.
The reason people quarrel about religion
is, because they really have so little of it,
and the harder they quarrel, the more
abundantly do they prove it. A man has
a right to stand fast by his religious faith-
a right to insist upon it-a right to present
it respectfully on all proper occasions, to
the consideration of others; but he has no
right to quarrel-and any man that will
quarrel about these things, in my opinion,
has not much to quarrel about.
Politicians need, not quarrel. Whoever
quarrels with a man for his political opin-
ions, is himself denying the first principles
of freedom-freedom of thought-moral
liberty-without which there is nothing in
polities worth a groat; it is therefore wrong
iupon principle. You have on this subject
a right to your own opinions, so have oth-
ers; you have a right to convince them if
you can, they have the same right. Exer-
cise your rights, but, again I say-don't

strange shapes in the uncertain light; the l
evening breeze crept through the aisles like c
the cold breath of the grave; and Oven the
distant footfall of a verger, traversing the i
Poet's Corner, had something strange and P
dreary in its sound. I slowly retraced my
morning's walk, and as I passed out at the
portals of the cloisters, the door, closing
with a jarring noise behind mq, filled the
whole building with echoes.
I endeavored to form some arrangement
in my mind of the objects I had been con-
templating, but found they were already
falling into indistinctness and confusion.-
Names, inscriptions, trophies,b had all be- i
come counfounded in my recollection, j
though I had scarcely taken riy foot from s
offthq threshold. What, thought I, is this
vast assemblage of sepulchres'but a treas- C
ury of humiliation; a huge pile ofreitera- f
ted homilies on the emptiness of renown, f
and the certainty of oblivion. It is, indeed,
the empire of death-his great shadowy
palace-where he sits in state, mocking at
the relics of human glory, and spreading
dust and forgetfulness on the monuments
of princes. How idle a boast, after all, is
the immortality of a name! Time is ever
silently turning over his pages; we are too
much engrosed lithe story of the present,
to think of the characters and anecdotes
that gave interest to the past; and each age
is a volume thrown aside to be speedily
fbrgotton. The idol of to-day pushes the
hero of yesterday out of our recollection;
and will, in turn, be supplanted by his suc-
cessor of to-morrow.
I stood, as I thought, in the gallery of a
Gothic Church. Tall columns, clustering
together like the trees of the forest, rose
above me. The shrine below me was cov-
ered with those flowers, "which speak of
hope to the fainting heart." At the altar
stood the white robed priest-and high
above in the dim distance of the roof was
that holy dove, fit emblem of the spirit
from whom all good gifts proceed. Around
were the gay forms of the young and love-
ly-beings, who seemed, as it were sent for
a time by heaven to earth, to console the,
afflictions of earth's children, and to purify
their joy. The countenance of the priest
seemed laboring with suppressed emotion,
and those of the congregation as expecting
some interesting ceremony. Suddenly the
doors of the church opened, and before
that priest stood his daughter in the act
to become a bride, and about to receive in
the faltering accents of an earthly parent, a
blessing front' her Father in Heaven. The
scene was over, and, as that fair bride pass-
ed from the church, full of "all spiritual
benediction and grace," I could not help
picturing to myself, the thousand blessings
which in human probability might hereaf-
ter surround her in her happy home. The
bright and beaming faces of infancy and
childhood would soon be hanging around
her knees,ld forming new cords of strong
affection to hiind her to her lord. The bless-
ing she had been of a dutiful child would
be returned and repaid to herself. But
even as I looked, the pageant passed, and
the crowd were gone.
I stood in that church again in the twi-
light of a summer evening, and again
around me I saw the young and lovely I
had seen before, but they were gay no long-
er. Again the doors opened, and the first
sight I saw was the priest of God, the first
sound I heard the strong and consoling af-
firmation, "I am the resurrection and the
life, saith the Lord." Again I saw that fa-
ther, but where was the fair young bride ?
Her spirit had gone to her heavenly parent,
and here were they bringing her mortal re-
mains to repose under that altar, where but
a short time ago, she knelt in all the warmth
of her young affection. She had been tak-
" Ere life'searly lustre had time to groW pale,
And the garland of love was yet fresh on her
And so that pageant past.
I still stood in that church, and behold
other hearts knit together in holiest har-
mony, with the gratulations of friends ris-
ing around them. But one being was there,
who seemed to look on all, as if he felt
some interest in their fate, but riot allied to

we lost our axe overboard-cut away the
other two with a kiife4 and the steps of the

situation for two days, exposed to the mer-

None were killed. One was slightly wound-

another's hat-a ball passed through the
sleeve of a third man's jacket. To account
for the Indians shooting so at random it is
supposed that they were deceived by the
looming of the boat, as it was within about
one hundred yards of the point, and ,there-
fore in the shade of the shore. Add to this,
it was just dark. They overshot;: or they
would have made sad havoc among the men
crowded in the boat. Both boats urged their
course down the river, and especially the
small boat, having all the arms! Soon they
saw the flames of the buildings on the Islahd.

Messrs. Palmer & Ferris have a cargo of
live-oak on the Island ready for shipment,

it on board when the above occurred. In-

The Editor of the Floridian promises to
give us the Constitution in his next number.
We are glad to see such indications of an
Agricultural spirit manifested in Florida, and
by such gentlemen. T'e resources of the
soil of Florida have not yet been developed,
We trust the time is not far distant, when
the lands of East, as well as Middle Florida,
will be more highly valued, and their worth
halted for the main body and to make ar-
rangements for the attack. A very small
party were sent into town, and they brought
out, with the utmost secrecy, a worthy cit-
izen friendly to the constitution of 1824.-
And by his assistance, guides were procur-
ed, perfectly acquainted with the place.
The main body of the colonists missed
their road in the night, and before they
found out their mistake, were at the upper
ford, immediately opposite the town. They
then struck across, for a short cut, to the
I position occupied by the van-guard. Their
route led through a muskeet thicket. The
muskeet is a tree of the locust family, full
of thorns, and at a little distance resembles
Sthe common peach tree in size and appear-
ance. While the parties were treading
their way through this thicket, the horse of
some of them started Ai affright at an ob-

his horse and said/ "who's there." A
voice answered in/Spanish. One of the
party supposed ttgt he recognized in the
voice an old acquaintance of La Bahia-

When Sana Anna assumed the Dictator-

When the company arrived at the lower
ford they divided themselves into four par-
ties, of twelve men each. One party re-
mained as a guard with our horses. The
other three, each with a guide, marched
by different routes to the assault.
Their axes hewed down the door where
the colonel commanding the place slept-
and he was taken a prisoner from his bed.
A sentinel hailed-and fired. A rifle ball
laid him dead upon the spot. The dis-
charge of fire-arms, and the noise of hu-
man voices now became commingled.-
The Mexican soldiers fired from their
quarters and the blaze of their guns served
as targets for the colonist riflemen.
The garrison was called to surrender,
and the call was translated by a gentleman
present who spoke the language. They
asked for terms.
The interpreter now became the chief
speaker. "No" answered he. They say
they will massacre every one of you, un-
less you come out immediately and sur-
render. Come out-come out quick. I
cannot keep them back-caene out if you
wish to save your lives-I can keep them
back no longer. "O do for God's sake
keep them back," answered the Mexicans
in their own language-" We will come
out and surrender immediately"-and they
rushed out with all possible speed and laid
down their arms. ,
And thus was the Fort of Goliad taken.
a fort, which with the garrison of three
hundred and fifty patriots the war of
1812-13 withstood a siege d',an army of
more than two thousand Spanish troops,
and forced them to retire-discomfitted.
At the capture of the fort three Mexican
soldiers were killed* and seven wounded,
and one colonel, one captain, one lieuten-
ant, with twenty-one petty officers and
privates were made .prisoners-others of

In the fort were found two pieces of

:Correspondence of the New-Orleans Bulletin.
BRAZORIA, (Texas) Oct. 22, 1835.
DEAR Sm,-While all eyes were direct-
,ed with intense anxiety towards the milita-
ry operations near Gonzales--supposing
that to be the only point from whence we
might expect important news-we were
astonished by receiving information of the
capture of the fort and town of Goliad, (La
Bahia) by a party of colonists. These
were volunteers from the transcendantly
fertile banks of the Canoy and from the
town of Matagorda, a place destined to be-
come an important city.,
Before this party entered the field, most
of the volunteers were at Gonzales-and
fearing that the harvest of honors would
,be reaped before they could arrive there-
Ifhey struck off from La Baca with the dar-
ing determination of taking Goliad by sur-
Goliad is situated on the southwest side
of the San Antonio river, thirty leagues be-
low Bexar, and it' is fifteen leagues from
GCopono, the landing place of Aransas bay,
,and about the same distance from the La
Baca endof Matagorda bay. The fort is
'built upon the point of a very steep and
high hill, formed o0rock, with a deep ra-
vine upon one side and a low prairie upon
the opposite-while a broad elevated prai-
rie extends towards the southwest.
. The walls of the fort are of stone and
lime, and bear in places the marks of the
storms of an hundred winters, but are still
proof against any thing less than the bat-
terings of heavy artillery.
,A long forced march brought the van-
guard of the colonists to the San Antonio
river fording below the town at 11 o'clock
on the night of the 9th inst. Here they

INDIAN HOSTILITIES !
From themost authentic reports received,
it appears that the Seminoles are carrying on
their devastqtions and murdering the inhabit-
ants of the frontier, whenever they have an
opportunityto do so with impunity. They
seem to be growling about in parties from 10
to 30 strong, In the early part of the disturb-
ances occasoned by the hostile spirit dis-
played by t1e Indians, Capt. Gabriel Priest
removed hi family, from his plantation at
Wacahooti, to. Hogtown, a place, twelve or
fifteen miles iorth-west of Wacahooti, where
is erected a.f4t for the protecf.n of the peo-
ple of the vicinity assembling there. On
Monday of last week, Dec. 7th, a scouting
party of fourteen or fifteen mounted men,
proceeded from Hogtown, to scour the coun-
try, and particularly to visit Capt. Priest's
plantation. About one mile,from the planta-
tion is a little jungle, or what is here called a
scrub hammock, through which, it was, by
some of the party, suggested, it would be un-
safe to ride. Four of the party, however,
thinking there was no cause of avoiding the
thicket, declared they would, go through,,
while the rest of the party proceeded to go
around the suspected place.
The two foremost of the four, however,
when about half through the hammock, were
fired upon by a party of Indians starting up
from their ambush. Both were wounded.-
One Mr. Folk, receiving a bullet which en-
tering near the point of his shoulder, passing
through his throat, came out near the other
shoulder-the other, Mr. Priest, son of Capt.
Gabriel Priest, formerly for many years, a
member of the Legislative Council, had his
horse shot dead from under him and his arm
broken. His horse fell upon his gun, so that
he, unarmed, fled pursued by an Indian, arid
escaped only by running into a swamp and
secreting himself by sinking in the water
till he had an opportunity to return to Hog-
town. Mr. Folk, badly wounded as he was,
fled a short distance, when he was taken up
by one of his companions behind him on his
horse, and carried off. His wound, it is said,
is probably fatal. The buildings at Waca-
hooti had, probably the day before, been
burned and the settlement laid waste.
MAlessrs. Palmer & Ferris, who have a con-
tract to furnish Government with a quantity
of live-oak, have been driven from their work
by the Indians. These gentlemen had about
thirty men in their employ, cutting live-oak
,on Drayton's Island in the lower part of Lake
George. Last week, on Sunday or Monday,
at evening, the men on the Island were in-
formed, by one of Mr. Kingsley's negroes,
left on the Island in charge of the improve-
ments there, that the Indians intended, that
night or the next, to.attack them, plunder and
burn up their encampment. Receiving this
intelligence, and having no means of de-
fence, they in some haste, abandoning the
encampment, leaving provisions &c., preced-
ed in boats to the Head Quarters" of Mes-
srs. Palmers & Ferris, at Rollestown.
On Thursday of last week, the 10th inst.,
six of the men, armed, that being the num-
ber of guns they could raise, returned to the
Island to see what the Indians had done. To
their surprise they found all safe and their
encampment as they had left it. The leader
of the six men, detaining two with him, sent
three with the boat down on Friday to Rolles-
town for the remainder of the men to return
to the Island in order to go on with their
work. Several returned on Saturday. On
Sunday the men were out rambling over the
Island-they saw no Indians, nor signs of
them. About sundown,asallwere assemble-
ed at the encampment, the cook by mere ac-
cident saw, just back of the encampment, an
Inkian skulking in the bushes. The cook,
hastening in, reported what he had seen. He
was hardly credited, yet for certain safety the
men, sixteen in number, concluded to put ev-
ery thing on board their two boats and again
abandon the Island. They did so, but on
their way, they were under the necessity of
passing the northern point of the Island near
to the shore. This point, on which is Mr.
Kingsley's plantation, the small boat con-
taining six men with the six guns, passed un-
molested, but the larger boat, containing ten
men unarmed, when opposite was fired at by
a party of, it is supposed, six Indians. From
the confusion among the men, one or two
falling over board, the boat was so long de-
layed within their reach, that the party on
shore re-loading gave them a second dis-
charge. After the second discharge the In-

vellous times to somb consideration. The

(having miscarried asWwe suppose,) was re-

EYES ON THE PICTURE."
SINGULAR PRESERVATION.-The Charles-
ton Mercury of Friday night says, "the
ship Washington, from New York, arrived
at this port on the 1st inst., and reported
John Shultz, seaman, as having fallen
from the rail overboard, off Charleston
Bar on the 29th ult.and was drowned. A
letter from Boston, dated the 12th inst., re-
:ceived yesterday, by the William Gibbons,
informs us that the brig Token, fronl this
port, had arrived the previous evening, the
captain of which vessel reported having
picked up at seain a boat, the said John
Schultz. The writer of the letter does
not give any particulars, as to the place
where he was picked up, or the circum-
stances attending his being lost from the
ship, and we are therefore, left in the dark
as to how lie got possession of the boat in
whichhe was picked up. He writes, how-
ever, that "John thinks he was rather un-
ceremoniously disposed of by the captain
of the Washington."-[Times.
EMIGRATION.-It seems that the tide of
emigration is pouring in an unusual degree
into Mississippi, Arkansas, and parts oft
this State., Cotton lands of good quality
-are every where in request, and command
high prices. We have heard one of the
most experienced planters in Adams coun-
ty, Mi., express an opinion, that fine un-
-cleared cotton land purchased at $30 per
.acre, and cotton commanding 10 cents the
pound, was the best agricultural invest-
ment that could be made; although the
price of cotton may decline a few cents,
and be subject to occasional depressions
and advances, still the immense and in-
creasing demand for the article, the con-
fined space of the globe in which this sta-
ple can be raised, make the cultivation of
cotton as one of the most lucrative products
.of the soil.-[New Orleans Union.
A SQUIRREL IHUNT.-A fine sporting
*match was decided at Russell's, in South
,Deerfield. There were about thirty on a
side, principally from Deerfield and Whate-
ly; about two day's time allowed for pro-
curing the game. Seventeen hundred
heads of all kinds, sorts and sizes, but prin-
cipally of squirrels, were counted at the
.time of meeting; about nine hundred of
which, probably, were shot for the occa-
sion. One of the parties resorted to a coup
remain, allowable by the immemorial cus-
tom of squirrel hunts, by which they suc-
ceeded in abstracting a large quantity of
game previously shot and stored up by
their adversaries, and thus secured the vic-
tory for themselves.-[Greenfield Mercury.
SCHOONER COMET.-There remains no
doubt but that this schooner, with six hands
and one passenger, had been lost. The
names of the persons lost are Robert Hag-
gerty, aged about 22; John Herrin of this
city, about 35 years old; Phillip Desilvy,
aged 45, Portuguese; Joseph Boclaire, a
Frenchman, from near Detroit, 24 ; John
Decker from Albany, where his friends
reside, aged about 21 ; and Truman Chit-
tenden, of London, M. T. aged 19.
NEW COUNTERFEIT.-The Albany Ar-
gus cautioristhe public against counterfeit
$10 notes on the Oommercial Bank of that
city. It is stated that the general appear-
ance is calculated to deceive, but that the
paper is of an inferior quality, and the sig-
natures decidedly had. The one detected
in circulation is dated Nov. 1, 1832, letter
A. and payable to A.'Keyser or bearer.

THAT'S THE TIME O'DAY !-A certain
old woman had for many years an old-
fashioned sun-dial on one side of her house,
which at last got so pelted with stones by
some mischievous boys, that she was forced
to take it down to prevent it. She caused
it to be placed p the cellar, and when she
wished to asce-tain the time o'day," she
took a candle ad went thither. One day,
after many fritless attempts to get the
hour, she can up, in a great rage, and
said, "It's too ad, I declare fort; them.
pesky boys havy ruined my dial, and I've
sot it, and sot it, a dozen times, and it's
never right, a r all; I shouldn't know
when 'twas nig t, if 1 .didn't see the cows
ANECDOTE.- school-master, while cor-
recting an urchi for using improper lan-
guage, told him o go to the other end of
the room and sp ak to one of the scholars,
and that grammatically, or he should be
punished. On doing, he thus addressed
himself to the sdholar:-"Thomas, there
is a common substantive, of the masculine
gender, third person, singular number,
angry mood, who sits perched on an emi-
ndnce at the other end of the room, and
wishes to articulate a few sentences to you
in the present tense."
NATURAL CRITICISM.--I always listen
with pleasure to the remarks made by
country people on the habits of'animals.
A countryman was shown Gainsborough's
celebrated picture of the'pigs. "To be
sure," said he, they be deadly like pigs;
but there is one fault-nobody ever saw
three pigs feeding together, but what one
of 'em had his foot in the trough."
AN IRISH BULL.-A genuine Hibernian
said, By the powers, as I hope General
Jackson 'll be present, as I hope Adams
won't." Why, my good fellow, do you
say so ?" "Oh, faith, an he's just such a
wild fighting Irishman as myself.-Och,
my honey, you may look wild if you like,
but he's an Irishmnan.;4m--was only two
years wifs country when he was born."
GosLaIrGS.-"Halloo, mister!" cried a
passenger in a stage coach, to a rough-
looking foot passenger, "Can you tell me
what has become of those goslings which
were hatched last year, on the top of that
rock ?" "Four of them are dead, sir,"
returned Jonathan, and the other, I per-
ceive, is a passenger in the stage coach."
The gentleman was used up the worst kind.
TO HE PUBLIC.
HE SUBCRIBER, having purchased
The Sou-hern dgricultuqrgffrom its late
Editor and roprietor, Mr. John D. Legare,
solicits the uppoit of the friends of 4Vricul-
ture, and the interests connected 'Wth it,
throughout the southern States. He has
published this work for Mr'. Legare from its
commencement, in the jear 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 dissemminating useful
information, not only with regardto 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, iot through the instru-n
mentality of a single extraordinary mind, but
by the contribution of particulars by mtny
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 fromthe 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 areworthy of being
recorded that they may be imitated, the first
should be noted in order to be shunned.
The subscriber hopes that this appeal to his
fellow citizens of the South, will not be in
vain. It would be a reproach to our Planters
to meet the fate of the Southern Review. Of
the last it may be justly said, that it was suf-
fered to fall, when it was not only rearing for
us a well merited fame as a literary people,
but it was also vindicating the Southern hab-
its from the unjust aspersions which have
been so liberally bestowed upon us out of ouir
section of country. The Southern Agri-
culturalist" in: some measure supplies the
place of the Southern Review, so faras re.
,gards the circumstances last alluded to. If
serves as a Register not only of methods of
Husbandry, but also of facts relating to our
system of Slavery. The subjects of the deci-
pline, the treatment, the characters of our
Slaves, are fairly suited to its pages, and
constitute topics as interesting and important
as any which can engage either our own at-
tention or the attention of those abroad, who
feel a legitimate interest in our concerns.
The subscriber begs leave, in conclusion,.
to remark, that if he had not undertaken to
continue the publication of this Periodical, it,
most probably, would have been either re-
moved from our city, or been suspended.
Whether it will be in'his power to continue, it,
will depend not only on the Pecuniary but
the Literary Contributions of Southern Plan-
ters. He confidently now leaves this matter
in their hands, feeling a full assurance that
there is wanting on the partof our Planters,
neither the liberality nor mental energies ne-
cessary to sustain the Southern Agriculturist.

DESIGN IN DOGS.--A friend of mine,,
while shooting wild fowl with his brother,
was attended by a sagacious Newfound-
land dog. In getting ear some reedsby.
the river, they threw doglS'r hats and
crept to the side of the water' fty
fired. They soon afterward sent the dog
for the hats. Ope of them was smaller
than the other. After several attempts to
bring them both together in his mouth,
the dog at length placed the smaller in the
larger one, pressed it down with his foot,
and thus brought them together. This
fact need not be doubted. These individ-
uals have both at different times assured
me of its truth.
A gentleman of my acquaintance witnes-
sed the following occurrences. He was
shooting one day by the side of a hill, at-
tended by a keeper, shot at and wounded
a hare, which ran through one of several
holes made in the bottom of a stone wall.
The keeper sent a favorite old retriever
after the hare. The dog jumped over the
wall, caught the hare and returned with it
in his mouth to the wall, but after several
attempts was unable to jump back again
with his additional load. Giving up his
ineffectual efforts, the dog was seen to push
the hare with his nose as far as he could
through one of the holes at the bottom of
the wall. He then leaped over it, dragged
the hare through the hole on the other
'side, and brought it to his master. From
the high spot where the parties stood, they
were able to witness the whole of the dog's
*proceedings, which certainly appear to
have been caused by some faculty beyond
(BREA.CH OF PROMISE.-Mehitable Gran-

recently tried in Boston, and the breach in
Miss Mehitable's heart repaired bya ver-

of age, and the defendant 22. The pro-
mise of marriage was abundantly proved,
both by love letters and by oral testimony.
The epithets are as warmi as heart could
desire, pr language express. They are
mostly written in prose; but for once the
lover's feelings seem to have been too ar-
dent for plain prose, and they burst forth
in the following strain:
"I will send you a short verse of my own,
which I think will correspond with my own
Go gentle sigh to ease my breast,
And on M--'s bosom rest;
op gentle sigh my heart now swelling,
And in her bosom take thy dwelling.',
Yet, after all this flourish of affection,
the tender swain of 22 deserted the tough
virgin of 29, and married a widow still
tougher, with a whole family of children.

The popularity now enjoyed by thisjournal,
will be the best guarantee for a careful adhe-

and the patronage hitherto extended towards
it, the most flattering encouragement to a
perseverance in the same course.

GREAT NATIONAL WORK.
Of useful and Entertaining Knowledge, to be il-
lustrated by numerous Engravings.
BY THE BOSTON BEWICK COMP.iNY.
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 pacgvsc- Two
DOrLARS per annum, payable in advance.
It comprises-Portraits and Biographical
Sketches of distinguished Americans; Views
of Public Buildings, Monuments, and im-
provements; Landscape scenery-the bound-
less variety afd beauty of which, in this
country, will form an unceasing source of in-
struction and gratification; Engravings arid
descriptions of the character, habits, &c. of
Birds, Beasts, 'Fishes, and Insects, together
with every sutibject connected, with the Geo-
graphy, History, Natural and Artificial re-
sources of the country, illustrated in a familiar
and popular manner.

A TAILOR'S REPARTEE.-A be-
ing seated at table between t ades-
men, and thinking to be witty upon them,
said, "How prettily 1 am fixed between
two 'tailors.' Upon which one of them
replied, "Being only new beginners in
business, we cannot afford to keep more
climbing on the cushion at his feet, leani'-
ing over his knees, looking to his face with
joyous eagerness, that they may coaxing
win him. This is the aeme of happiness.
HosPITALITY.-The late Dr. Thyme, so.
well known for his love of good eating,
called one day to pay a visit to the eccen-
tric Lord R--. He was shown into the
dininig-room, where he found his Lordship
alone, and engaged in the discussion of an
exquisite little dinner. After talking for
some time, My Lord," said the Doctor,
(excited by the agreeable odor,) II I think
it would be no great stretch of hospitality
were your Lordship to say, 'Doctor, pray,
do as I am doing.'" Well, Doctor," said
his Lordship, pray do as I am doing-
4 go home and eat your dinner.'
