The wijd rose, by the window side,
Np more waves in- the breeze;
:, The scattered stones JoiL desolate,
p -J.zna codirhzf- rested.n -.
Hias been ploughed up by stranger hands
Since you and I were gone.
The chestnut tree is dead, John,
And, what is sadder now,
The broken grapevine of our swing
Hangs on the withered bough;
I read our names upon the bark,
And found the pebbles rare,
Laid up beneath the hollow side,
As we had piled them there.
Beneath the grass-grown bank, John,
I looked for our old spring,
That bubbled down the alder path,
That bnbbled down the alder path,
Three paces from the swing.
The rushes grow upon the brink,
The pond is black and bare,
And not afoot, this many a day,
It seems, hM' trodden there.
I took the old blind road, John,
That wandered up the hill,
'Tis darker than it used to be,
And seems so lone and still;
The birds sing yet upon the boughs,
Where once the sweet grapes hung,
But not a voice of human kind.
Where all our voices rung.
I sat me on the fence, John,
That lies as in old time,
The same half panel, in the path,
We used so oft to climb,
And thought how o'er the bars of life
Our playmates had passed on,
And left me counting, on this spot,
The faces that are gone.

Melville was a remarkably Ii:inosome young

maiden-thatwas the heart of Eugenia Dor-
Endowed with a perfect education,, with
a lovely face and figure, of a character at
once simple and affectionate, Euge:nia was,
in one word, an accomplished woman.' ,Her
father had acquired an immense fortune,
and taken up his abode in Baden Baden.
Far from interfering with 'the course of
true love,' M. Dorval had encouraged the
growing affection between his daughter and
Charles Melville. Everything contributed
to make the proposed union a happy one. In
age, rank, and feeling, both parties were on
a perfect equaUlty.
Eugenia, it might be said, had the oppor-
tunity of choosing between the two brothers,
and she gave the preference to Charles
Melville, not because at first it was possible
to make a distinction between them, but be-
cause Charles was the more animated of
the two, and had first presumed to speak to
her of love-to press her hnd-and to
make her mistress of her own destiny.
Adolphus. the more timid of the two, had
contented himself with admiring Eugenia
in'silence, and loving her in secret, his dis-
position being to take the part of Sorrow,'
in that domestic drama of which his brother
should appear as the representative of IHap-
piness.' -
Charles, as it may be perceived, had pen-
etrated the mystery ofhis heroic sufferings.
'On the point of being united with Eugeiiia,
he was terrified at the thought of the blow
be was about to aim at the heart of Adol-
phus. He told his grief to Edward, and
the latter at length succeeded in convincing
him, that despite of their amazing sympathy
with each other ia ever3thii,, el0e, it was
not to be pre-snmetl thai they mnut both lall
in ote. with the sgame lady.. F -
Ouar wishes are often the. itarpreters
which our heart employs to mislead our
reason. Such. too, was the case with
Charles Melville. The words of his friend
at once dispelled all his cares, and it was
agreed by the two youinecmllenitn. that
they should finish their evening by a visit to
the opera.
But, alas! on what a fragile thread de-
pends the life of man., .Charles Melville
left his seat between the acts, and when he
returned, he found his place occupied. He
politely remarked to the stranger that he
made a mistake in taking it, for on going
out he left his glove op the seat, where it
was still to be found.
The man to whom these observations
were addressed, was of a most ferocious and
forbidding aspect. He had thick grey mus-
tachios-his frock coat closely buttoned up
to the neck-the red ribbon at the button
hole-and high, haughty look and manner,
at once declared him to be an old officer who
had served under the Emperor. This per-
son, in hearing himself addressed by Charles,"
scarcely deigned to turn round his head.
He slightly raised his eyebrows, and then
cast upon the young gentleman a haughty
and disdainful look.
The place is mine, sir,' said Charles, in
a voice slightly tremulous with anger. 'Will
you give it up quietly, or shall I have to
take it by force?'
'The place is yours, you say; very well f
that is the very reason I am determined to
keep it as mine.'
Then you compel me to remove you.
from it,' replied Charles, placing his hand
on the stranger's collar.
At the moment he did so, he was instantly
struck in the face; and thus an insult was
offered to himn, that in every country of the
world, and iin despite of the strongest laws,
requires a reparation, too frequently stained
with blood.
A place of nrieeting was instantly fixed
upon. Not ote word of rage or of passion
passed between the parties, only, at the end
of the performance, the unknown, in passing
Charles, looked at him fixedly, and in order
that he mighf sed what' effect hii words
would produce upon hiu, said:
Tomorrow, sir--I am General Dupont.'
That name was knoiw'n to Charles, ais it
was known to all the i~orld; for it hadac
quired in France, bat in-Parisespecially, a
horrible celebrity. Every one knew that,
thanks to his murderous talent, aided as it
had hitherto been. by chance, that every
unfortunate man'that had fronted the Gen-
eral as-an anttagonist in a duel, had beemtre-
trioved as a corpse!
No matter what may be a man's courage-
nor how strong may Ibe his tlerves, nor hlow

me the day of his death, and the contents ol

pressed closely on her heart.

'. these few lines:-

Not one word was exchanged between the two
young persons after the reading of this letter.
Eugenia Derval stretched her hand to Adolphus,
who pressed it. to his lips, and the wish of the
dead was soon carried into effect. United before
men, as they had been almost unknown to them-
selves in the secrecy of their hearts, they with-

of Charles; and not a day now passes over their

SUICIDE OF A CONVICT.-In our paper of last
Friday we mentioned the conviction, in the court
for Greenville district, S. C., of Ambrose H.
Jones, a man of about fifty years of age, of the
murder of his step-mother, an old lady of sixty-
five. On the 12th inst. he was taken to the bar of
the court to receive his sentence, which was, that
he be hung onthe first Friday of June. On'the
14th, about 3 o'clock in the afternoon, Jones com-
mitted suicide by hanging himself with his sus-
penders and a rope made by tearing and twisting
his blanket. A note was found in his pocket, ad,
dressed to the sheriff, Wbich read as follows:
COL. D. HOKx: Dear Sir-I have saved you
the trouble. AMBROSE H. JONEs.
I am innocent of the charge.
Near the middle of the day Jones made his will.
His wife took leave of him about half an hour be-
fore he was found dead, but he requested that she
would return in an hour, as he might have some-
thing more to say to her. She came back to the
prison before the time stipulated, and upon going
to his cell, in company with thejailor, found him
dead. An inquest was held over the body by the
coroner,'when the above facts were elicited.

The Honorable David Levy, the democratic i
candidate for Congress (N. B.-A seat in the
Senate would be preferable, but if this can't be b
had, the lower house will answer,-" small favors
thankfully received."-) has addressed the people .
of Florida in a Circular, wherein he details all
that he has heretofore done in their behalf, and t
all that he intends to do hereafter-if he can get 8
a chance,-besides giving them important and I
interesting intelligence concerning the progress
of his studies and the improvement of his mind. '
After declaring that Florida was admitted into I
the Union through his exertions, and enumerating
the different bills, containing appropriations for
our State, which he carried through, and others t
that he commenced but had not been able as yet I
to get passed,-all of which, recollect, are in di- a
rect accordance with the doctrine of Internal a
Improvement, so loudly condemned by the d'mo. t
cracy,-he proceeds to notice a report that he c
had met with in the Tallahassee Sentinel, name. 0
ly, that he has become a candidate for Represen- C
native in Congress solely to strengthen the party s
ticket in the State; and with the understanding
that if there should he a democratic majority in a
the Legislature, he should be promoted to the P
United States Senate. He begins by saying that t
during the last session of Congress, while at b
Washington, after it had become pretty certain i
that Florida would be admitted into the Union as l
an independent State, he received letters both a
from Democrats and IWhngs, expressing satisfac- d
tion with his course,'and communicating the wish I
to see him "chosen one of the first U. S. Sena- r
tors from the State, in the introduction of which F
into the Union he had officiated." Being also l
pressed by members of his own party, after his d
return, to know which one of the loaves he would a
prefer, he very candidly declares that, though he li
will accept any thing he can get, yet he would b
much ratherf'take an upper seat in the Syna- 1'
gogue. His reason for this preference is forcible P
and convincing. In the House, on account of the V
number of members, the business is conducted P
very irregularly, and it takes up all his time to ll
keep pace with the proceedings, while in the *
Senate, business is carried on with greater order C


he has never had any instruction since he wi
twelve-.or thirteen years old." Poor fellow! th;
is a misfortune, truly; and we think his friend
should kindly allow him to remain at home tli
next two years, to take care of his health, which
has become so much impaired by excessive laboa
and to remedy those defects in his early education
which he seems sobittterly to deplore.
After this long digression on the subject of hi
health and mental culture, Mr. Levy at last n
turns to the accusation referred to above, an
says: "1Whether it is the purpose of my friend
to tender me a change of position in Congrest
should the people place it in their power to d
so, is a matter for them to consider and decide
It will remain for me to consider and deci(4f
myself, if the tender should ever be made, whtao
er I will accept or not." Really, Mr. Levy
not been at Washington four years in vain, for i
he has learnt nothing else, he has at least aS
quired the art of doubling and turning in its it
most perfection, as taught by the Fox of Lindeo
wold. In the above quotation the inferenfi
plainly is, that if elected a member to the lowl
house, he will serve in that capacity; but yeti
he should be promoted to the Senate, no 4
could accuse him of a violation of any promise
lie accepted the preferment, Thesubjoinedre
lution, -howevcr, whichw o f&red itfthe
son Convention, and afterwards withdrawn f1i
fear it would be used against them in the elect
tion, shows conclusively the intentions of tjn
Resolved, That he (Levy) merit; the highest
gift of the people, which we believe to be thi
office of United States Senator, but his services
are of such importance that we deem it impru.
dent to hazard his election, therefore we nomi.
nate him for the office of Representative in Con.
Now, should the democracy carry the Legisa.
lure through the influence of the name of Davic
Levy,-in itself "a tower of strength,"-^.will
they not feel bound to confer upon him the office
of Senator, which, they say, he so well mInerii
and will he, think you, hesitate to accept thit
position, which, besides conferring greater hlonor
and dignity, wilt allow him time to supply, to
some extent, the deficiencies of early education ?
Then, although Mr Levy is a candidate f~r
Representative in Congress, and a candidate fr
nothing else," he knows very well that if his par-
ty comes into power in the State, another anda
higher office will at once beoffered him, and thot
he intends to accept it; and it ill accords with
his protestations of candor and plhin dealing
towards the people, to have dodged the question
as he has. He should either have pledged hiri-
self to serve, if elected, in the lower house -t
Congress, or else have declared his determination
of changing his position as soon as he could, and
acknowledged that he only agreed to occupy his
present situation, for fear that by aiming at too
much he might miss all. This, we say, would
have been the most honest and fair way of acts
ing; but the course he has pursued is undoubted.
ly in accordance with the practice of the wA/&
politicians under whom he has been trained.

In an editorial article .or The last harirdia'n, i
find an attempt to makan a issue :etvee;n *6f*
Calland ourselves, in relation to so-ne reinarti
reported, as having been made by the General,
in hii speech here on the 29th April fest. The
Floridian says, he (Gen. Cal) acctedhis Whig
friend, who reported his speech at ApalachiOola,
of reporting it falsely." Notvcithstan.l i ng the liigh
source from which we receive the information, we
cannot believe Gen. Call so discourteous ase Jo
charge falsehood upon any one, with ut strong as-
surance of such intention, but mor particularly
upon one who, like ourselves, could have no mo-
tive for misquoting his speech. We are left entire.
ly in the dark as to what part of that speech he ex.
cepts to, but presumejt refers to that portion which
bears upon the partisan nomination. Now, we may
have blended Gen. Call's remarks upon that sub-
ject with our own convictions, for t ie speech was
reported next day from memory, and with no in-
tention of giving it literally,-and should have so
stated, but in the hurry of getting the paper to
press overlooked it,-but merely the substance;
if we did, and it is quite possible, we think, from
conversations since had with gentlemen who were
present on that occasion, we shall be most happy
to correct the error, and place the responsibility
where it properly belongs. Howe.'er unpleasant
the charge of nominating a partisan, for party
purposes, may sound to Democratic ears gener-
ally, and those of the leaders particularly, who
are ever seeking to convince the 'dear people'
that they are governed in their conduct by no
considerations save those which have for their
object the good of the State, and happiness of her
citizens, it nevertheless requires but a small
share of common sense to perceive that such was
the feeling manifested in the Madison Convention,
und that similar motives govern those 'wire
pullers' of the Democracy, who are Iloking TW
Ihe loaves and fishes' which will require distd.,.
bution, should the party succeed in the approaeK
ing contest. Let us now for a moment go back
to a few months prior to the Madison Convention,

promising to support him. Now, we ask, i
Col. Bailey was as competent and' worthy, ant
had the support of the Whig party pledged t
him, and was a 'good and true' Democrat, wh
were his claims laid on the table by the Conven
tion until the next time, and another gentlinma
taken up, who would necessarily encounter th
opposition of the Whig party, and probably
through their instrumentality, suffer defeat? W.
think this plain view of the matter, looks, to
man up a tree,' very like the clique entertained
fears that Col. Bailey would not have looked 8
much to the bestowal of office upon the faith
fil,' as to the general interests of the State; ani
:jhat possibly some poor Whig, or honest maln
.p'ithout strenuous political principles, migh
divide with the aforesaid faithful,' some of thi
public plunder. But, say the Democrats sirtlci
the Madison Convention, this was a ruse. Wal
now, gentlemen, we should like to know upor
what ground this charge was predicated ? Di
not the Whig party wait until after the Cnnven
tion nominated Col. Mosely, before they woyii
take any steps towards bringing before the pepaI
a candidate? Did not Gen. Call positively rerusi
to run, though strongly solicited from various
parts of the State, by those who were not advised

'shallow wit' in those who got it up, and would
argue but a small quantity of that acumen it the
Whigs generally, for which the Democrat$isa)
they are so distinguished. But let us see how
the thing would have worked had Col. Bailey re-
ceived the nomination at Madison. After having
elicited him to run, several months before by a
committee representing the Whig party, could
that party, with any show of consistency, have
centered their votqs upon another? Would not
a violation of a pledge, under such circumstances,
havb cast an odium upon, and rendered unworthy
of confidence for the future, that party which
would so lightly consider the obligation of pro-
mises ? Could any of ourI Democratic friends sup-
pose those who acted in thitaffair, so stupid, as
not to foresee the injury to the'party which would
have followed such a course ? Verily do the no-
tions of the Democrats, in relation to Whig man-
agement, change with circumstances. Recently,
however, we have been undeceivediin this mat-
ter, and we now make our aclZnowledgments to
the Convention, and beg,-as we so promptly ad-
mit that we laboured under a misapprehension as
to the cause which induced the selection of Col
Mosely rather than Col. Bailey,-we shall be
forgiven for having blamed them for not nomina-
ting a man so stupid as Col. Bailey has been as-
certained to be since that Convention. Hear the
Democracy's explanation, which, by-the-bye, we
feel bound to receive as we have no persona!
knowledge of Col. Bailey. It has now been ns-
certained, (say they,) that Col. Bailey is deficient
in ability, and it was found, had he been elected
Governor, he would have filled the chair, but the
functions of office would have been performed by
Gen. Call; so that, though the Democrats hladl
really put one of their own men in office, from
his imnalecility, and 4 t0d iinflenar of~en. -C

Democratic leaders entertain such uncompronr"t

friends ywho supported his claims in (he Conven.
tion, receive this excuse from their brethren?
Will the addition of insult to injury soothe the
irritated feelings, or heal the wound thus wan-
tonly inflicted by his own friends ? We shall
now leave the adjustment of this affair with Col.
Bailey tnd his friends, hoping they may find some
better reason to point to him, for thus uncere-
moniously putting him aside, and taking in his
stead another more congenial to their tastes.

0- The following, which we extract from the
Albany (Ga.) Courier, shews in what estimation
the conduct of the Democratic and Whig parties
of Florida is held by the thinking portion of the
citizens of that good old State.
People of Florida! be not humbugged into
he support of a mere partisan, who will
ook more to the distribution of offices among
he few who constitute the clique which put
iim in power, than to the discharge of those
luties which devolve upon the Executive of a
3tate. Has riot Gen'l Call pledged himself, if
elected Governor, to serve the people--to dis-
:harge the duties of his office, unbiased by any
>arty consideration whatever1 But what says
=ol. Mosely? "If elected he will defend the
principless of his party." Therefore should the
principless of his party-as indicated by himself-
*ome in conflict with the interests of the State,
rhy, as a matter of course, the interests of the
jtate must be sacrificed fur the good of the Party.
Pre the honest and industrious planters and me-
hanics of Florida willing to put a man in the
highest office: they are able to bestow, who is
)ledged to sacrifice every thing at the shrine of
)arty? .We cannot, will not, believe them so

'lie friends of the People.
Floridians! look well to the merits and promi-
es of both candidates. They are before you with
heir letters of acceptance, asking your suffrages.
Be not deceived by empty promises, or vainglori-
us boasting of party adherence, but examine dis.
assionately the claims of both. Gen'l Call is no
tranger in this State; he has long been among
ou, protecting your interests, both in a civil and
military capacity. Col. Mosely has more recent-

ind see the position of Col. Bailey and the Whigs,
luring the last Territurial Council. The Whigs,
looking-to the probability of admitting the Ter-
itory into the confederacy as a State, to prevent
party strife and its ccn:omitant evils-,-at least in
he commencement of our new Government-
determined tit forego their political predilections,
and even lend their support to any man who was
liberal, honest and competent, though he might
bear the nane of Democrat. Believing Col. Bai-
ley was such a man, and knowing him to be*eWy
popular and unexceptionable to his party, the
Whigs tendered him, through a committee ap.
pointed for that purpose, the support of the party,
f he would consent to have his name announced
or the office of Governor. Now, if the Demo-
crats did not make a nomination for party pur-
poses, we ask, why was not Col. Bailey the man?
They knew full well, that if he did receive it,
he Whigs would cheerfully enter into his sop.;
port, and of consequence his election would be
certain. We know the Democrats of this city
ware generally of opinion that Col. Bailey would
ae the candidate; and, so far as we heard, they
II agreed that his talents and moral worth gave
him pre-eminence over all others who were
poken of, and, indeed, chuckled over the fact

FLoRIDA.-The contest, in this infant State
for Governor and inember nf Congress, at the ap-
proachingelection, bids fair, from what we see in
the papers, to be a warm and exciting one. Both
parties have their candidates in the field, and no
pains will be spared on either side to insure suc-
cess. The Whigs are endeavoring to place a man
in office, as the first Governor of the State, who
will not be operated upon by party influence.-
This, thought he is in principle a true Whig,
they find to be the character ot Gen. Call, their
candidate, who, in his letter of acceptance of the
nomination says: "if elected he will serve the
people to the best of his ability, as the Governor
of the State of Florida, unbiased and uncontrol-
led by any party considerations whatever "
The Democrats, on the other hand, have deter-
mined, from the outset, to make the election a
strictly party contest, believing that they have a
majority of voters in the State; the unterrified, in
every District, have been stirred up, and their
forces regularly marshaled for the onest. Their
candidate is a strict partizan, who says," If elec-
ted, he will defend-not the interest of the State,
but the principle of his party-principles which
he has ever cherished with unreinitted and una-
,bated consistency." The result will soon bt-

Mr. Calhoun, in January, 1843, when he wad
in the Senate, delivered a speech upon it, in op-.
position to the immediate occupation, in which'
he contended that we could not hold it against
the. opposition of Great Britian. After having re.-
capitulated the historyof the Oregon negotition,' -
he said:- .
With these preliminary remarks, I repeat the'
question, has the time arrived, when it would be
wise and prudent for us to attempt to assert and- -
maintain our exclusive right to the territay
against the adverse and confieting-claim of Great
Britain? I answer, No, it has not: and that for'
the decisive reason, because the attempt, if made,
must prove unsuccessful against the resistance(
Great Britain. We could neither take nof h6d *4
it against her; and that, for a reason not less de- *.I
cisive-thatshe could in a much shorter tine, and
at far less expense, concentrate a far greater ftice .i
than we could in the territory." .
Mr. Callhoun enforces his views iy sobqwing
how that Great Britain has already a lri uarmy
in the Pacific Ocean, capable of being eoucentra-'
ted in six weeks at the mouth of the Columbia.
On the other hand, we have no force there. He
Our fleet would have to sail from our Own
shores, and would have to cross the line .nd :
double Cape Horn in 56 degrees of south latitude;
and turning noth, recross the line, and ascend to,
altitude 46 north, in order to reach the month of
the Columbia river -a distance from Nw York
(over the straightest' and shortest line) of more
than 13,U00 miles, and which would require a' run -
,t more than 18,U0 of actual sailing on the usual 1
route. Instead of six weeks, the voyage would 4-
require six months. I speak on the authority ot'
one of the most experienced officers attached to&
the Navy Department.
These facts are decisive. We could do noth-'
ing by water. As far as that element is co icern-
ed, we could not oppose to her a gun or aas Idler
in the territory."
Having established that we could do nothing by
water, Mr. Calhoun goes dn to demnonstrare that
we could do nothing by land-that the distance
from a central point in Missuri to the Columbia '-
river is two thousand miles, and that it would be
utterly impossible, in any reasonable time, tor us
to march an army that distance, thriou;h a'. un-

In these little sketches we do not propose to be
r profound; only talkative, chatty, and simple. As
we have very little space this week, for this fea-
ture, we shall continue our subject without need-
las preface.
Putnam's early days were spent as those of most
boys placed in his situation of life. One of his
favorite amusements was "bird nesting," a cruel
S kand useless custom, followed in all country places
: 'with a ferocity perfectly atrocious. These hunts
"'for nests were followed in company; but Putnam
S;was always the leader of the head.
On one occasion he and his companions same
across a fine nest which lodged on a frail branch
of a very high tree. The tree stood apart from
'the others, and was difficult of climbing Besides
Athie, it was evident that no pole, or contrivance,
would answer the purpose of getting the nest-
there was no way of obtaining it save by venturing
: 7'upon' thebranch, which, nine chances to ten,
tinfd beakc-urder the weight of the robber. No
obn' would venture.
Putnam regarded the nest and limb in silence,
tor some moments,' and at length said-
"That bird has all the qualities of a soldier.-
t has completely fortified its home. I'll wager
there is not a boy for ten miles round that could
.et that lestt.'
All dgreed lith him.
S" I'll try it," said he deliberately taking off his
jacket and rolling his pantaloons up| to his knees.
The little knot of boys attempted to dissuade
Shim ;.but to no purpose. Go he would.
S"I'll fancy that one of the King's strongholds,"
,sald Putnam, (" and may I be shot if I don't come

*The tree was ascended-the limb gained. Put-
ham placed his foot on it, and it cracked, while
S ,' the old.bird flew off with a sharp cry, and remain-
ed describing circles round the tree, and uttering
touching complaints.
S" Bah! said Putnam, do you not prey on our
:fields? Do ypu not tax us for your support ? Do
you not take our goods against our will, just like
Sthe King?"
He, ventured a foot further on the limb. It bent
low, and a warning murmnr arose from the boys
below. ,, Putnam put his knee to the branch, and
,reached towards the nest,. The limb broke par-
tially-a shout below-and Pltnam persevered.
His fingers-tnon hed the wis'e'le for ,)rize, and just

his head hung downwards.

A sailor not long since, went into a prayer
meeting-and took h'is seat in a remote part of the
room. In the course of the evening, a gentleman
came and requested him to go forward for .pray-
ers." The sailor had no special seriousness of
feeling, and was disinclined to take a step which
,would imply more- than he really felt at heart.-
The gentleman perceiving his reluctance, began
to importune him; "come friend; now is the
time to get religion. Come right forward and be
prayed for, and you'll go home rejoicing." The
l[-i sailor not yet persuaded, said "Sir, are you a sea-
I man !" No," was tfereply, but I love sailors,
and want to save thfltir'souls." Well," answered

.he Pensacola Gazett- r..lates the following oc-
e'lrreince, which took plac.c a few days since at
S'-Cedar RBliff; on the Chocktahatchie:-
A barge belonging to Mr. Cook, was Ivin-,
l61?"t the bank of the river, on board of which Mr.
N. Mitchell, of Holmes Villev, and his lady and
tfeveral children were passengers bound for Pen-
'w ueola. The screams of a pant tier were heard at a
di.sta'ie, and presently after the ferocious animal
bontited' towards the hare. All fled in conster-
tr&tio n f toursre. A Mr. Bowington, living near
there, waa-o.r the hank and took refute on board
the harit.'c:lply pursued by the panther, which
Sleapned uion him.: and with his claws, mangled
\im dreadfully in the back and sides, before any-
thi efflectnual could he done for his relief. At
... lenth a rifle wa,4 procuied and the panther was
_ s~rhot while yet in the act of tearing and mangling
h is victim, We are informed'that the animal was
-found to have in his mouth a 'sharp'stick of wood
.~~~,mnd-of which was embedded in ope of his jaws,

and the other-end projecting directly against the
other jaw ; satt|at he was entirely prevented from
biting. What connection this singular circum-
Stance may have had with the strange conduct of
the animal, or whether this may not be a case of
hydrophobia, is all matter of conjecture. The in-
side of the mouth of the animal showed signs of
its having been very sore for a long time, from the
wound produced by the stick, and the stick was
much discolored.

On Wednesday, April 30, at the Navy Yard, by
the Rev'd Rodman Lewis, Mr. GEORGE W. Du-
VALL, of Mobile, to Miss MARGARET K. LAVAL-
LETTE, daughter of Capt. Lavallette, Commandant
of the Navy Yard at Pensacola.

In this city, this morning, of bilious fever,
Esq., and daughter of the late Charles Austi-,
Esq, of Tallahassee, aged 21 years.
Why love to linger where disease
Is rife in every clime,

And few and faint the scenes that please,
And brief the hours oft'layfelt ease,
In woful, weary time. -
Oh Heaven, I gaze upon thy light,
So very far away,
And pour my soul with ardent might
To Cjtrist in realms of beauty bright,
Nor wish below to stay.
" To live is Christ, to die is gain,"
Thou reeling pauper Earth!
Then Hope shall gild our cankering chain,
And Faith shall drink the dregs of pain,
Till our immortal birth.
