Perhaps some persons may not be inclined
to condemn Mr. Smith's conduct, because
he it paid for it by Captain Houseman:--
He is a lawyer, and works for his'ee, and
his client should be held responsible for his
conduct. We 'do not approve of this rea-

The vYesel had a very boi iterous passage,
having hbid 17 days of westerly winds.--
The owners, it appears, desirous of making
the mosi out bf the voyage, dispensed with

winds keeping hi~r but a few days longer
than was calculated, her fuel fell short, and
every thing like wood, such- as spars, plank,
etc were sawed up to supply the boilers
with fuel. In water, they wore also short,
and for several days previous to her arrival,
the passengers were put on an allowance
of 4 pint a day. Fearing that they should
be.unable to reach New York, it was de-
termined on Tuesday to put in at Newport,
as it appeared by tleir chronometer, that
they were then not fair )f,. But it seems,
that in consequence of aa accident which
happened that day to the chronometer, they
had made a mistake in their reckonua of
150 miles, and instead of being near New
port, they found themselves suddenly ap.
proachihg Long Island shore. Considerable
alarm was felt on board, until they met a
Ship fr'im New York, informing them of
their error. Had ltho weatherr been thick at
the time, as it was 12 hours after, nothing
could have saved them from shipwreck.

So cheeri!y forth I go,

When the sun is sinking low.

And the cooling draught pours in,
Sask no spring of brandy ling,
Or toddy made of gin.

The fount that gurgles free,
The green-wood trees, in a cooling breeze,
And a limpid stream for me.


In Northfield, N. H., on the day of elec-
tion, says the New York Whig, nine revolu-
tionary soldiers attended the polls together,
and voted. The following verses were writ-
ten on the occasion.

Room for the grey haire soldiers !
In a noble band they come--
But not with the battle shout,
Nbr with th hd of the martial drum:

Not with the nodding plume,
Nor the war steed proudly-prancing,
Do they come, with the light of the day,
On their bayonets brightly glancing.

Not now with the stars and stripes
Above them floating free,
Do they press to the battle field,
With the cry of Liberty.

Nor now does the cannon roar,
Or the speedy musket flash
Rally the ranks of the freemen
Where the swords of foemen clash.

With tottering steps they come,
And lips all bloodless now
