SONS-THE EMBLEM OF FREEDOM.
BY JAMES S. BABCOCK.
Bee o'er the blue ocean whose billows are laving
Those green flow'ry shores and the emerald isles,
The banners of freedom in majesty waving,
Their stripes and their stars in the sunbeam's bright
smiles;
In long streaming grandeur they proudly are floating
Upon the oft swelling and mild sweeping breeze,
Ble-t liberty. harmony, friendship denoting--
Oh! what are the ensigns of monarchs to thee.
See yonder tall tree with its green branches spreading,
In loveliest beauty far over theland,
Its fruits and its fragrance in rich bounty shedding
To all who beneath its reviving shade stead.
How ofien its soil has in torrents heen watered
By the deepcrimson fount from the patriot's heat,
While figtiing beneath the sweet shadows were slaugh-
tered,
The blessing to ages unborn to impart.
See far in the heavens the eagle is flying,
In lof y magnificence sails through the air;
The chaipsof oppression beneath her are lying.
FR r while she is flutt'ring, no slaves can be there.
The hoarse trunms; are beating, the loud cannons roaring,
The wild trumpet sounding the charge through the fitld,
Above the red carnage the prod bird is soaring,
S, Her pinions are stretched, and ti~e toeman mast yield.
Bee far o'er the country the people pursuing,
Without dread confusion, their labors in peace,
And unto all nations the blest prospect showing,
That war a'nd co emotions by freedom maycease.
With rich golden harvests the green fields are banding,
Sweet fruits, flowers arid roses bespang e the ground,
With odorous groves, spicy fragrance are sending,
On soft breathing zephyrs in sweetness around.
Oh I say, shall our banner the tyrant foe banish,
The tree of our frerdorin cut rudely away,
Shall the efgle ii sorrow disconsolate vanish,
And despots our brothers, our countrymen, slay.
Our arbors of roses to wild deserts turning,
Our gardens of plenty, our fields into gore-
0 Dear homes.of our childhood, our forrfathers, burning,
And spreading destruction, unequalled before.
Nn: we swear by the flag, and the tree freedom planted,
Our dear native country, the bird of the sky,
Our home, children, wives-we will meet foes un-
daunted;
flefend those we love, or like brave freemen die.
We swear by the heroes wh', hive suffered b fore us,
By all our possessions, by all that we crave,
No traitor nor tyrant shall ever rule o'er ius,
Nor blast that blest freedom our forefathers gave.

LINES ON REVISITING THE HOME OF
MY CHILD!IOOD.
The scenes of my childhood burst fresh or my sight,
And far on tih pleasant fields wave in the view;
All, all to my bosom bring joyv and delight,
The cool quint shaide. and the green avenlle.
But yet they are changed, and 'he visions of yore,
By th-ir mazic high-wrought bi the embryon mind
Like a rnteor sear, havw flel long liefore,
And lIft pot a gleam of their brightness behind.
My own lovely arcade is standing there still,
The green ivy twines o'er the summer house yet;
While each spot imparting a rapturous thrill,
Seems fondly to utter, -'once more we are met."
But where are they gone front this dear loved retreat,
Who danced o'er its paths in the years fled away-
Whom buoyant with hope Ihave iiastene lto greet,
In the spring time of life, my youth's sunny-day?
The fountain yet gushes from out the high hill,
Untouichrd or unwarmed by the sun's glowing beam,
And gently it flows in a pellucid rill,
That murmurs along like the Lethean stream.
How oft have I quaff-d the pare wave from its bed,
When high on my brow was the eIverish glow !
To its green banks in haste, how oft have I sped,
To relieve my hot thirst, and the blood's rapid flow!
These yore-haunted shades are full fresh in my mind,
Where. languid and worn by the all-fervent sun,
Unwonted to care, I have rften reclined.
Till onward the bright orb his course far had run.
But gone are the loved ones with whommy free hours
Have passed like a vision : far, far do they roam,
For the g itter of famle, like quick fiding flowers,
They have left their elysium. their own native home.
Again have I found thee, home of my childhood,-
S But though they are lost, that have tripped o'er yourlea,
Yet a transporting thrill imparts e'en the wild wood
That circles around all bhy green fields so free,
Adieu, then the world's giddy revel adieu I

ORIGINAL TALES.
Written for the Saturday Courier.
A STORY OF AfMERICAN LIFE.

Judge Mansfield was the first witness examined
for the prisoner, and irrepressible tears rolled
down his manly cheeks, as he spoke in high terms
of his former irreproachahle character.
Julia Durand confirmed all he had said, while
the deep paleness of her countenance bore witness
to her own feelings.
Several of Beanchamp's most intimate acquaint-
ances in New Orleans testified to the rectitude ol
his conduct since he had been in that city; ancu
here the evidence was closed. There was scarce-
ly a chance for any defence. Gilbert, however
was sanguine; and he made a bold, spirited, and
eloquent appeal to the jury. He exerted all the
powers of a strong mind, and a vivid fancy, aided
by all the best, strongest, and purest feelings of au
unsophisticated heart.
In a cold, business-like manner the Judge charg-
ed the jury.
They retired; and after an hour of awful sus-
pense, returned and announced that their decision
was made. There was a breathless pause among
the audience. The prisoner was sitting by the
table; his elbow rested on that, and his cheek
pressed upon his hand. There was no percep
tible change in his countenanee, as the awful-
guilty-sounded through the hall! He stirred
not, but sat as if changed to marble.
Lucy fainted, and was borne from the court-
house. The prisoner gazed vacantly at her as she
w's carried away.
The Judge rose to pronounce sentence of
death.
/ At that instant a youth, who had been observed
as deeply interested in the trial, cane forward
from among the crowd, and requested to he heard.
He was about thle size of the prisoner, and his
person, it was thought at Ihe time, bore a sirong
resemblance to his. But conscious guilt ha,
wrought even greater ruin than sickness and inm
prisomnent. His form,, which seemed to havt
been cast in nature's noblest mould, was wastci
to a perfect skeleton; his countenance was of
livid paleness, aud in the centre of each sunker

He confessed himself the murderer of Penn
field ; said that ever since the fatal night, life hac
been to him but prolonged torture; and to lengthen


it a few days or weeks, he would not sacrifice at
innocent and worthy man; that his soul was al
ready stained deep enough with murder.
It appeared that he was a mere youth of nine
teen ; had been in New Orleans but a few months
had a widowed mother and an only sister in -
though poor, had been respectably educated; thai
on coming to New Orleans, he had became ac
quainted with the family of Pennfield; had love(
deeply the only sister of the murdered man, anl
his affection had been all returned by the inic
cent, confiding girl. Her brother had always op
posed strongly her attachment to him.
A few nights before the murder, that brother
had won from him, at the card-table, his lai
dollar.
Pennfield had spoken tauntingly, contempt
ously to him, on that fatal night, when he had ni
him in the street, and absolutely forbid all intet
course with his sister. This the fiery spirit of th
spoiled boy could zot endure, and in a moment o
wild excitement he plunged a dagger to his hear
"It is useless," he continued, "to speak of whit
I felt, soon as the deed was done. Reckless an
insane ndered I knew not where. Tt
morning I went to see Sarah. I knew
must be the last visit, but I went; and I told h.
all! She was before involved in the deepest grit
for the death of her brother; but never-throug
the endless ages of eternity !--shall I forget tt


account of Beauchamp's arrest, and conscience
goaded me effectually.' I returned to this city one
week ago. The next day I gazed on the lifeless
features of Sarah Pennfield. I saw her laid by
her brother's side! I had murdered both!
"To-day I have heard one, I know to be inno-
cent, pronounced guilty of the murder I commit-
ted; and though life to me is 'now valueless, I
might-(so hard is it to confess myself a murderer)
-I might, had it not been for the eloquence of
that young gentleman," pointing to Gilbert, "per-
mitted him to die !"
"As I said before, my life is valueless. True, I
too have a sister, who loves me as well, perhaps,
as -Pennfield's did him-as well as the devoted
girl, just carried from this room, loves her brother.
And-I have a mother! 0 God!-But I can be
nothing now to them but a blighting curse! Let
me die! I would not live !"
He paused.
It would be vain to describe the astonishment
produced by this speech ;-vain to describe the
appearance of the prisoner-or of the misguided
youth who was speaking-or of Lucy Beauchamp,
when she was told that her brother was proved
innocent-or the feelings of Gilbert, who was the
first to communicate to her the welcome news, as
she recovered from the long death-like swoon into
which she had fallen-or the meeting of Beaun
champ with his sister.
We will leave them all, and briefly narrate
what remains to be told concerning the ill-fated,
guilty, but noble boy, in whose fate I think my
readers must be interested. For reasons, which
must occur to every generous mind, he was par-
doned by the governor; and his last pangs were
mitigated by the presence of his sister and mother.
He had been a petted and-idolized child! He
died-a broken-hearted penitent! and they thought
of him with hope.


CHAPTER VII.
"And from her soft blue eye,
The spirit of cach new-born thought looked out
In undisguised depressionn, and diffis- d
Over her face its own pure loveliness!"
It was the close of a glorious summer. Old
Mr. Gilbert's small white house, on the banks of
the Illinois, embosomed in a rich profusion of liv-
ing green, adorned by flowers of deep luxury, and
canopied by a sky of sunny and gorgeous linhues,
;iad been that summer the abode of as happy a
party as ever gathered around a cottage-door, one
a summer's evening.
Young Gilbert, Beauchamp, and his sister, had
spent several months there. James's health, which
had been seriously impaired by severe suffering,
was now so far restored as to admit of active ex-
ertion, for which the state of his finances was call-
ing loudly. And it was agreed that the party, on
the morrow, should leave the undisturbed repose
of the country for New Orleans.
The circle, at old Mr. Gilbert's, had certainly
been a happy and interesting one. The old gen-
tleman had been an officer in.the army of the re-
volution; and the young people were as fond of
listening to his long and minute stories of those
ever-interesting days, as lie was of relating them;
a;nd among the listeners, none dwelt with more in-
dividual attention on every word than Maria.

var-ending forest: They gathered wild flowers,
they listened to the music of morning's earliest
birds, they traced the course of the wayward
brook, they drank in the influence of nature to-
gether.
Maria had been happy, most happy, even while
she had been nursing a hopeless fashion. 'But to
tier it was not then hopeless. Sanguine in all her
expectations, unused to the blandishments of po-
lite society, unskilled in reading human hearts, and
too conversant with novels and romances, she im
igined that the fondniess which Beauchamp mani'
tested for her society was love. Deluded girl !-

brother, than a tribute to any qualities possess(o
'ly the sister. And had he even looked on he,
vith more partiality, he would not have aspired
o her hand, for she had now become an heiress.
[ie law-suit, which Gilbert had so suddenly aban-
loned, he had very prudently entrusted to so goo,-
lands, that contrary to his and her most sanguin,
expectations it had gone in her favour.
Beauchamp admired the firmness with whicl
ihe bore her good fortune, and very justly consi-
dered it an initiation of a strong mind. But some-
times he thought of what she would be, when ex
perience should have corrected her faults, educa
lion refined her manners, and time matured ihe
beauty. Had he known the sacrifice she had beert
willing to make for his sake, his feelings towards
;ier might, perhaps, have been more ardent.
He never dreamed of the existence of that fool-
'sh passion which his slightest attention, his mosl
meaningg compliment was nursing. If he had,
his manner towards her would have been cold.
Willingly he would not have blighted one rose in
her future path; little did he think he was strew-
.ng it with thorns! Little did he think, while he
wined wild flowers amid her flowing tresses,
and praised the fresh bloom of her young cheeks,
;ow many bitter tears would be slied over the me-
mory of these careless actions, and idle words!-
Little did he think, ashe playfully kissed her fore-
- iead, while in all the artlessness and innocence ol
i early childhood she clung around his neck, thai

knowing well your ground"-(Oxleigh suiied
contemptuously)--"I am ready to hear what you
say. Go on, sir. You may sit down, if you
choose." The baronet sat down in his easy chair,
and Oxleigh took a seat opposite to him.
"Not liking to trust my memory insuch niatters
as this. Sir William," said he leisurely, "I have
committed to paper what I have to say to you,
and beg your permission to read it." The baron-
et nodded haughtily, and his features wore a very
concerned air. Mr. Oxleigh drew out of his hat
a sheet of paper, and distinctly read as follows:
"Sir Gwynne Fowler Gwynne died in 1673, be-
queathing his estates to'his eldest son, Fowler
Gwynne Gwynne, and the heirs male of his body;
but if his first son died without having been mar-
ried and leaving male issue, then to his secondson,
Glendower Fowler Gwyme, and the heirs male
of his body; if his second son, however, died un-
married, and without leaving male issue, then to
the heirs male of Sir Gwynne Fowler Gwynne's
neice, Mary Gwynne Evans. on condition that
they took the name of 'Gwynne.'
"Sir Fowler Gwynne Gvainne entered, and
d(id at sea, unmarried in 1683; when his brother,
Glendower Fowler Gwynne, entered on the titles
and estates-was afterward married and had two
children--"
"Both of whom died," interrupted Sir William,
eagerly, who had been listening with undisguised
and intense anxiety. "But one of them left is-
sue," continued Oxleigh, calmly; "and that issue
I can produce! Gavin Evans, son of Ellen Evans,
(your father, Sir William,) entered in 1740; and
had about as much right to do so as 1. DoI make.
myself clear, Sir Wiiliam?"
"And do youi pretend, Mr. Oxleigh," said the
baronet, rather faintly, yet striving to assume ai
smile of increduliiy-"do you dare to assert, Mr.
Oxleigh, that there is now living lawful issue of
Sir Glendower Gwynne ?" "Yes, Sir William, I
do-aud can prove it. I can reduce your infirm
title to the dust with a breath, whenever I please;
and thus: Sir Glendower-as doubtless youlnow,
Sir William-died in 1740, and, as you imagine,
without leaving mile issue surviving him; but I
can show you, that though his daughter Ellen
died unmarried, hilson, William Fowler Gwynne,
was married in 1733."
"It is as false as hell! It is false! It is false !"
exclaimed the baronet, vehemently-half choked,
yet continuing in his chair, with his eyes fixed on
Oxleigh, 'Tis too true, Sir William-to true for
you, I'm afraid! Isay, William Fowler Gwynne
was secretly married to Sir Glendower's house-
keeper in 1733, and had a son by her in 1738, a
few months only before he himself died. I can
produce all the necessary registers and certificates,
Sir William I can.! The marriage was in ihe
proper fill name of William Fowler Gwynne;
hut immediately afterward his wife dropped the
name of Gwynne, andl settled in a distant part of
Somersetshire, under the name of Fowler; but
her son was carefully christened by the name of
Gwynne. It is astroig case, Sir William-what
we call, in law, a very strong prima facia case,"
continued Oxleigh, bitterly. "1 can, at a day's
notice, produce that son, who is the proper heir
arnd holder of all you now have-who is now
more than of age-"
"Why, sirrah! even on your own showing, I
ant safe' yot -- pettifogger, if by right of pos-
session only." "Pardon me-pardon me, Sir
William There are nine years and a quarter,
arid more, yet to expire, before that can be the
case. I have calculated the time to a minute!
And note, Sir Wiliam Gwynne," said Oxleigh,
with a startling change of tone, pay me for the
/kick you gave me!''
The baronet continued silent; though the work-
ing of his features showed the prodigious tempest
ihat agitated within. "Let me e frank, Sir Wil-
linna. I do not presume lo blame you for calling
yourself a baronel, and enjoying these fineestates;
it was done in ignorance; bi't it is hard-very,
very hard. to give them up, Sir Willinam !"
,[- ...J ,. ,e very te r ac ',.l trat you say!" said
the baronet in a low tone. "How could the
lamnned vixen that swindled William Fowler out
of his name and land forget to put in claim on
behalf of her von till now?:' "You cannot escape
:ne, Sir WVilliamt! Mrs. Fowler died in child-
bed, and had changed her resilience, by her hus-
oand's order, but a week before her confinement.
She did not live to explain the nature of herson's
Sights and birth. I, however, know them well,
thonghr at first through blessed accident; and have
for months fretted out every fact that can estab-
lish the right of that woman's son to die title and
-estates you now hold. There is not, however,
mother person breathing but our two selves, that
know of this-indeed there is not, Sir William i"
"Have young here the proofs of all this?" in-
lImired the baronet, wiping the perspiration from
'its forehead, and looking anxiously at the packet
.)f papers which lay in Oxleigh's hat. Mr. Ox-
leigh instantly untied them, and proffered themrto
Sir William, who suddenly snatched them up,
,'rushed them together, and with frantic violence
of gesture flung them into the blazing fire, where,
in an anstant, they were reduced to ashes. Mr.
Oxleigh looked on with composure, making
not the slightest effort to rescue them. "Well!
it is brit the trouble of another copy from the
originals!" "Copy! Copy! murmured Sir Wil-
liarm, aghast, sinking back overwhelmed into hib
chair.
"Yes! You have burned cApies qply, Sir Wil
liam. And could you really suppose I should
bring here the original documents, on purpose for
you to destroy them? We lawyers, Sir William,
are generally considered a cautious set of men,
and do not usually fling ourselves bound hand
and foot into t':e hands of the enemy! And
look'ee, Sir William," continued Oxleigh, fiercely,
taking a small pocket pistol from his bosom,
cocking it, and levelling it at the baronet, "since
I cannot otherwise obtain civility, I shall avenge
any future insult you may dare to offer me on the
spot. If you menace Ie ever so little-if yol
lift but you little finger threateningly towards me
-by-- ? I'll shoot you through the heart. I
cannot be insulted even by Sir William Gwynne!"
said he, with sarcastic emphasis. The baronel
looked at him' as if he were stupified with what he
had seen and heard.
"Have you any further commands with me in
this business, Sir William, or is it now your plea-
sure that I should withdraw ?" inquired Oxleigh.
'"Yes-withdi-raw, sir! Begone I will set off to-
night for London; I will lay your atrocious con
duct before the secretary of state-I will seek the
advice of eminent counsel-"
"Do not you think, then, Sir WVillliam, that ore
depositary of such a secret as this is quite enough?
\Vould you rather prefer being at the mercy of a
dozen, thbn one?" The baronet heaved a pro
found sigh, and turned deadly pale.
"Sit down, sir," saidl he, i aii mvournfril tone-
"pray be seated, Mr. Oxleigh !" Oxleigh bowed,
.atd resumed thle chair he had left.
"Put away your pis'ol, sir--" "Excuse me-
pardoin me, Sir William Forgive me holding it
in my hand, after what has happened between us,
is an argument for coolness and consideration,
:ill youi arid I thoroughly understand one another!"


Phe baronet's lips--rather his whole frame--
quivered with insupportable emotion, and his eyes
Were fixed with a kind of anguished stare on
'hose (if Mr. Oxleigh. He suddenly hid his face
in his hands, pressed his hair back, and muttered,
'Surely, surely, this is all dreaming!"
"It is a dreadful business," exclaimed Oxleigh,
"'and I see you feel it to be so. I thought you
would." The baronet spoke not, but seemed ab-
sorbed in deep and bitter reflection. "Sir Wil-
lina," resumed the attorney, in a low tone, "it
is impossible for us to come to an-an amicable
:djustimett ?"
"Great Heaven !" groaned the baronet, rising,
arnd walking hurriedly to and fro; "here is a
wretch, absolutely in my own house, tempting me
io become a villian !" "Say, rather, a fi end, who
ivonld persuade you to prefer safety to destruction,
Sir Williand!"
"And pray, what do you mean, sir, by an amic-
able adjustment?" inquired the baronet, sternly-
pausing, anid looking full in Oxleigh's face, "Sure-
ly, Sir William, it is not very hard to imagine a
meaning," replied Oxleigh, looking unabashed at
the baronet with equal keenness and steadfastness.
"iir William seemed confounded at the easy ef
.'runtry of his companion.
'Wiiat, sirrah, do youi mean that you would
wish me to meet the person you have been speak-
ig of, and buy him iinm off heavily '" "No, no,
Sir William; such a thought' never passed through
ny head. It would be folly personified. 'There
ire ways of cUttinr the kinot: what you name

"'You wonll murder him, then ?'" said the bar-

God and man ?" "I do." The baronet walked
bout, frequently stopping, evidently in deep and
mgitk 'ng thought; and at length sat down exhaust-
ed in .s chair in silence. He closed hiseyes with
iis haia ,and looked that moment as wretched a
"How am I to know, sir, that you are not after
all, a common swindler-have come here with this
trumped-up stuff for the basest purposes?" in-
'luired the baronet with a scowl of mingled pride
and despair. "By going to the parish church of
Grilstone, and for yourself comparing my copies,
which I will, once more, Sir William," continued
Oxleigh, with stinging emphasis, "cause to be put
into your hands to-morrow, with-the original reg-
isters and certificates; and if you prove me wrong
-that I have deceived you in anything-in a sin-
gle tittie of what I have said-hand me over at
once to the pillory, transportation or death !"
"I will, sir !" replied the baronet, with a search-
nug look at Oxleigh; who resumed, "Sir William.
I am a lawyer, and a calculating one. I have look-
nd well to the end of what I am doing. Permit
me, therefore, to say, that my arrangements will
not allow of-delay. You must choose your alter-
native-beggery, or a baronetcy with 30,0001. a
year! And again, Sir William," continued Ox-
leigh, drawling out his words slowly, "there are
what we lawyers call MESNE PROFITS to be ac-
counted for! What will becomeofyou?" The
baronet shuddered. The bare possibility, the dis-
tant contingency of such a thing, was frightful.
Po be not only shorn of his title, income, and
standing in society, but to have to disgorge two
or three hundred thousand pounds to his sup-
planter Fearful thoughts and prospects; bloody
schemes began to gleam before the disturbed in-
tellects of Sir William Gwynne. What an awful
-hange had a few minutes only wrought in him,
his situation, his prospects! Here was a low fel-
low, a scoundrel, swindling pettifogger, boarding
and bullying him in his own house; flashing ruki,
disgrace, starvation before his shrinking eyes--
coolly goading and edging him on to the perpe-
tration of villainy and cruelty, and requiring,
doubtless, a participation in the profits! Those
maddening thoughts kept him long silent.
"Are you, permit me to inquire, thinking of
what I have said, Sir William?" "I am thinking
you are too great a villain to live sir; and that I
had better knock you on the head, and so rid the
world of such a ruffian!" replied the baronet, with
V- desperase air.
"Suppose you did, Sir William; a lawyer, like
an eel, is hard of dying. I have made such ar-
rangements, as, even were you to succeed in kil-
ling me on the spot, here, this night, and which
would not, possibly, be without danger"--glancing
"irom his pistol to Sir William-"it would do you
no good, but rather ruin you at once in every way,
with no possibility of escape. I told you I had
calculated, Sir William-"
"Oh!-your terms, sir.!" gasped the baronet,
interrupting Oxleigh, as though he felt his fate
pressing him on. "Why, I don't know, exactly,
whether I could name them at a moment's warn-
ing. It is, I presume, superfluous to say, that I
must be paid well for any assistance I may render
you. Nay, may I not name any terms I choose ?
Is it not I who am to dictate ?"
"What are your terms, sir ?" repeated the bar-
onet, with an air of consternation at the tone in
which Oxleigh spoke: "whatever they are, name
them at once. Don't hesitate, sir. Yol know, of
course, that you are a scoundrel: but circum-
stances have inade you safe, and. protected you
from a fury that would have annihalated you,"
gasped the baror.et, stamping his foot upon the
fldoor. "Name your terms at once. They may
be so exorblitnt and monstrous, that I may deter-
m'ne, at all risks, to refuse them, and defy you,
devil out ol hell as you are!"
"WVell, Sir William, it is of course for yourself
to know best your own interests. Let me, how-
ever, request you, Sir William, to bear in mind
.what small courtesy yonuha ey bs mevepMi .SEv,-

*hbe oity due to misfortune !" "'Oh, God! oh,
Go4! that I must bear all this !" groaned the bar-
ri~et, compressing his arms with convulsive force
)lpon his breast. Oxleigh smiled.
* "I have little further to add to what I have said,
Sir William, unless you are disposed to come to
terms. It will be a terrible thing for you, if I leave
your house tonight without some thing like a
very definite understanding with you. I'will be
straightforward with you, Sir William, and in a
word or two tell you that, to secure my secrecy
and co-operation in concealing the fact of this
young rnan's, Fowler's, existence-sending him
-ibroad, and keeping him there-you must con-
vey to me the fee of a certain estate of yours, in
the neighbourhood of the house where I live,
worth, as I reckon it, 20001. per aunum; and fur-
ther, must cause it to be believed by the world that
I have been a bona fide purchaser of it." The
baronet bit his lips, but evidenced no symptoms
of astonishment or anger. "Well, sir," said he,
"I suppose I must consider your proposal."
"But allow me, Sir William-do you consider
it unreasonable, supposing you to have ascerlain-
ed the truth of my representations ?" "Why, cer-
tainly, sir, you might have been more extravagant,"
replied the baronet, gloomily, and with a reluctant
air.
"But, further, Sir William, this must be done
with no ill grace-no airs of condescension! It
must be done as between gentlemen," continued
the attorney; "you and I must hereafter know
each other, and associate together as equals-the
baronet's blood boiled, and his eye flashed-"we,
must be intimate, and I shall expect the honourof
your good word, and introduction to your friends
of the county generally." While Oxleigh said all
this, the tears of agony were several times nearly
forcing themselves from Sir William. He 'rose
from his chair, exclaiming, in a lo0w tone "I-_I
ronnot think that all this is real!" '
"Will you allow me to remind you that pen.
ink, and paper are before you, Sir William, and
will you favour me with your written promise to
convey to me the property in question?" "It will
be time enough to think of that, sir, to-morrow,
ufter we shall have inspected the parish register."
"Excuse me, Sir William, but, with submission,
we can do it now, conditionally. Nothing like
written accuracy on sucn occasions as these.'"-
"Well, sir!" exclaimed the baronet, with a pro-
found sigh: and flinging himself down in his
chair, he seized pen and paper, and wrote, to the
dictation of the attorney:
"Sir William Gwynne, baronet, of Gwynne
Hall, Shropshire, hereby engages to convey to
Job Oxleigh, Esq. of Oxleigh, in the same county,
lhe fee simple situate in the same county, and
known by the name of 'The Sheaves,' now of a
rental of 20001. per annum, provided the saidJob
Oxleigh shall prove the truth of his representations
and make good the undertakings specified by him
to me, thlis 15th of October, 1760. And, as the
said estate is portion of the estate entailed upon
me, I hereby engage to suffer a recovery of the
same, in order to cut off the entail, for the purpose
of alienating such portion thereof as is above
specified. "WILLIAtM GWYSE." '
"Gwynt. Hall, 15th October. 1760."


Mr. Oxleigh carefully read this agreement over,
folded it up, put it into his pocketbook, and express,
ed himself satisfied with it. "Now, Sir William,"
said he, in an altered tone, "we understand one
another, and may therefore proceed to business."
"Mr..Oxleigh-Mr. Oxleigh, not quite so fast, sir!
I have not yet ascertained the truth of your extra-
or'dinary representations: till which is done, I will
not stir one step in the proceedings. I expect, in
the course of to-morrow, to be shown the marriage,
baptismal, and burial registers, and to be put into
possession of the name and residence of the young.
tman we have been speaking of. And you will
allow me, sir, to take this opportunity of telling
you two things, that if I should find myself, de-
ceived by you, by my God, I will get you hanged;
or, if that cannot be done by law, I will shoot you
through the head. And I beg, secondly, that you
will not talk so much like my equal-in such a
strain of familiarity with me. Sir, I care not what
you say to this, or how mortified you look. I can-
not, and will not, bear such freedom. It chokes
me to hear the tone of your speech to me. We
hall never be friends so long as you forget that I
am a gentleman and a baronet, and you-but no
matter. Sir, it is against my nature to endure
liberties of' anmy kind." The baronet said all this
sternly and bitterly, and drew himself up to his full
height as he'concluided. The attorney was abashep
by the flashing eye and proud bearing of the bar-
onet, and stammered something iPdistinctly about
ihe respect "certainly due to misfortune."
"Sir. your attention a moment,'! said the baronet
abruptly, seeing Oxleigh rising as if to go; "tell
me what is to be done in this matter, supposing
all to prove true that you have said. How is this
young manto be found? how is he to be got secure-
ly rid of?!" inquired the baronet, anxiously. 'Why
Sir William, I see no other safe and srure way than
IF _[;A :. -kidn innnaL tk I A _AI-IAI L.'_


Yet are yours sufficient, even with mine; but we
nust neither of us, therefore, be idle. We must
,lire at least two desperate fellows, and pay them
vell--stop up their mouths with bank notes; and,
besides, there is no need for them to be instructed
with the reasons of what they are doing: we can
easilyy give.them any story we like.''"
"It isa frightful business! Here, the devils has
taught you how to make a villian in a moment out
.fa man who, but an hour ago, might have be-
ieved his soul to be full of honour and nobility! I
tm undone! I am fit for hell, for even listening
to you !" "Well, it is easily remedied: I can tell
you a way of preserving spotless honour-"
"What do you mean, sir?" inquired the baronet,
abruptly. "By simply giving up your all-sur-
,endering your title and estates to a-wagoner--a
:ommon wagoner-making up to him two or three
mlundred thousand pounds-and earning your own
'read for the rest of your life. That, now, Sir
William, would certainly be noble!" The baronet
1,roanetl. "We are all the creatures of circum-
itances, Sir W-lMtni : we must all yield to fqNe !"
S'Patter your nonsense elsewhere, sir!" replied
:he baronet, angrily; "I want no devil's preach-
ing here!"
"I wonder, Sir William," retorted Oxleigh, tho-
roughly nettled by the lefty bearing of the barbo
net, and the contemptuous tone in which he ad-
Iressed him, "you can so easily forget that I, who
im,really and in fact your master, yet consent to
become your friend-your adviser! Have I not
been moderate in my demands? What if I had
demanded half your fortune?" "And how do I
know but -you will hereafter? Let me advise you
iMr. Oxleigh, not to irritate a desperate man; for
I now tell you that if you were to increase your
demands on me above what is already, perhaps,
too easily conceded, I would certainly take your
life !"
/'Sir William-I had better be 'rank with you,
as I said before-I never thought I should be free'
from danger-though 'nothing venture, nothing
have'-that my lifewould be otherwise than in per-
petual jeopardy-and soI will at once tell you what
arrangements lthave made to provide for my own
security. I have drawn up a full statement of the
matters which I have mentioned to you this even-
ing, sealed it up, and placed it in the hands of my
London agent, with explicit directions for him to
open it, directly he hears of my death, either na-
turally or violently, for at least nine years to come;
so that not only would it do you no good to take
away my fife, Sir William, but it would immedi-
ately ruin you." J"Ah! Well, here, then, is an
end of our bargain. Give me up the paper I have
put into your hands I will not treat with you
on such terrs!" said the baronet, his face blanched
to a whiterhue than before.
"You cannot help yourself, Sir William!" re-
plied the -attorney, calmly. "Only be pleased to
reflect-and you will yourself see that you can-
not." 4 "Mr. Oxleigh," said the baronet,
stltdenly, "I have been thinking of this matter.
Supposing all to be as you say, and it should prove
necessary to send this man outof the country, there
is surely, there can certainly be, no need for my
appearance or meddling in the business? I need
not, personally, have a hand init! Cannot Ileave
it all to you, Mr. Oxleigh, and your assistants?"
"Then, Sir William, what security would you
have? How would you know that I had really
performed my promise to you? That I had not
played you false? Besides, Sir William, this is a
dangerous, a very black business-a perilous, a
deadly job; and I cannot consent tp bear it all upon
my own shoulders-to stand alone in it. You must
help me, Sir William-must work as hard, and
risk as much as I. Our hands must both assist in
removing this obnoxious person! I am a man of
my word, Sir William!-f cannot forego this! To
be equally safe, we must be equally guilty, Sir
William!-equally committed to each other!" *
"Pray sir, what did you say was this young malu's
name?" "William Fowler Gwynne--but be goes
-hy hp rss," "-f WihHans"l nI,,-.?,, 'r.u ,* "'-.-- *v-
5.RDou"o lenow-1-tnt lie' bVears the name of
Gwynne, sir? Has he any inkling of, what you
have now been telling me ?" "No more than the
dead !" -
"What is he now?" "I am not quite sure, Sir
William. He is poor and ignorant-a carter, I
believe, or wagoner; but I shall know more by to-
morrow."
"Till to-morrow, then, sir, we must part," said
the baronet. "Be here to-morrow at nine, and we
will say more on this subject. Good evening, sir."
"Good evening, Sir William; good evening. I
shall be with you again at nine to-morrow; and hope
we shall then be better friends. Good evening,
Sir William"-and Oxleigh presumptuously ten-
dered his hand to the baronet, who reluctantly laid
his cold fingers-the flesh creeping the while with
disgust-in those of Oxleigh, and in a moment or
two he was left alone. He sat back in his ample
armchair, for nearly two hours, in stupified silence.
He was to have written three or four imp"t t
election letters, and one to his intended wife, .hat
evening; but being now unequal. to Ihe task, he
thrust his table from him, rang for candles, and
went to bed, saying to his valet that he was ill. It
need hardly be said that he passed a fearful night;
several times being on the point of leaping out of
bed, and committing suicide.
True to his time, the villain Oxleigh made his
appearance at the hall as the clock was striking
nine. Sir William met him with a fevered brow
and bloodshot eyes; and in half an hour's time
both of them stepped into the carriage, which Sir
William had ordered to be in readiness. They
drove rapidly into Somersetshire; and Sir Wiliam
returned thunderstruck 'with what he had seen-
ample and idub"'able corroboration of all Ox-
leigh had t.la him overnight-a ruined, a blight-
ed -man. It was long before he recovered the
stunning effects of the disclosure. He gradually
became passive in the hands of Oxieigh. The
servants at the hall, and Sir William's friends,
equally wondered what could be the reason of
Oxleigh's perpetual presence at the hall.
In three weeks' time it was a matter of notoriety
over the country, that Job Oxleigh, Esq., of Ox-
leigh, had purchased "The Sheaves" estate from
Sir William Gwynne; and shortly afterward oc-
curred the seizure with which this narrative com-
mences: Sir William and Oxleigh, with two des-
perate fellows hired by Oxleigh, were the four that
set upon Forster, and subsequently, William Fow-
ler. Sir William became one of the most misera-
ble of men. His altered demeanor and habits be-
came matterofpublicobservation. He contrived
to have it given out that he had become addicted
to the gaming table; and the subtle Oxleigh en-
couraged the rumour-even allowing himself to
be thought one of Sir William's winners That
consummate scoundrel contrived to write himself,
in two or three years time, Job Oxleigh, Esq. M.P.;
and was on terms of intimate acquaintance with
most of the leading mes in the county. Ho easily
made his presence, in a manner necessary to the
wretched baronet, whose nobler soul drooped dai-
ly ander time pressure of guilt contracted in a weak
and evil hour, and so wormed himself into his
confidence, that, what with wheedling and men-
uce, he obtained an introduction to a female rela-
tive of lhe baronet's and married her.


Hurrying on an interval of several years-for
the few remaining scenes of this black drama
must now be passed rapidly before the reader's
eyes-let us approach the mansion ofJob Oxleigh,.
Esq., M. P.; on an evening in the winter of the
year 1768. He was entertaining a numerous
and gay dinner party, consisting of some of the
most distinguished people in the county, Sir Wil-
liam Gwynne was to have been one of them, but
excused himself on the score of illness. Many
were the toasts that had been drunk, and were
drinking ; and the health of the host was being
proposed, and received with complimentary en-
thusiasm, when a servant brought in a letter,
which he put into the hands of the Rev. Dr. Eb-
ury, the vicar of the parish, a staid and learned
man, who, after a polite nod to. the host, opened
it, and read with much surprise as follows:-
"The master of the workhouse presents respects
to the Rev. Dr, Ebury, and begs to inform him
that there is a pauper in the workhouse, now in
dying circumstances, who has so dIsturbed, for
some time, everybody in the house l.dth his groans
and lamentations, that it has been found necessary
to put hitm into a room by hirtself He says he
has something very heavy 'on his mind, and hum-
bly begs the favour of a clergyman's being sent
fn4, when he will make an important confession.
The Rev. Dr. Ebury is respectfully informed, that
the man is pronounced to be in extreme circum-
stances, it may prove too late."
Great was the astonishment with which Dr. Eb-
uury perused this letter, which he took an oppor-
tuntty of reading aloud to the company, as at once
a sufficient and very interesting excuse for leav-
ing. He promised to return to the party that
evening, and communicate any intelligence lie
might receive. Mr. Oxleigh was observed to start
as Dr Ebury went on ; and when he had finished

THE HUMBUG UNMASKED.
Our readers will bear ns evidence that we have
never been very slow in expressing our convic-
tion that the "Wandering Piper," who was piping
through our towns, was a rascally humbug. We
warned people against him, and did all we 'could
to show him up. By the following article from
the London Times of Aug. 20, it will be seen that
this wandering vagrant-this great physical,
vulgar lout, is stripped of his borrowed plumage
-his garbof "the Great Unknown"-at last : the
real Simon Pure having always been on the other
side of the Atlantic.
THE WANDERING PIPER. This celebrated per-
sonage is at present in Dunbar on the east coast
of Scotland, and is a great favorite. The mystery
concerning his birth 'and Darentage no one call
* solve, and on that account he is the object of thF
greatest curiosity. He is dressed in the Highland
garb. The money he collectshe gives to the poor.

'The poor ye hare always with ye.
As the inclement season 'approaches, it is the
duty of those to whom Heaven has imparted
abundance, to think of the forlorn and exposed
condition of the destitute poor. To see the wi.
dowed mother, with her helpless orphans, from
whom the stroke, of death hath taken away their
natural protector, shivering around 'some half.
expiring embers, in a winteeold and dreadful as
was the last, is indeed a spectacle that will open
the avenues of benevolence, if any thing on earth
has the power to do so. It appears that the Com-
mon Council of Albany have appropriated money
for the purchase of one thousarmd cords of wood,
to be distributed among the suffering poor the en
suing winter. And we hope that every other
place in this vast country, where this unexcep.
tionable charity may be needed, Will follow so
glorious an example. The Fund Societies of our
city will not be unmindful of so imperious a duty.
Their arrangements should be early and decisive.

THE CITY OF CONCEPTION AND. THE PORT OF
TAr.cuaHaMA.-The New Bedford Gazette (a
very well-managed paper) has an article ofinte
rest respecting these distant police. The effects
of the dreadful earthquakes of last year are rapidly
passing away. Multitudes of new buildings are
springing up F-om the ruins. They are built
earthquake proof. Slight shocks are occasionally
felt. A gentleman has shown the editor "two or
three petrified reund-clams, or quahaugs, which
he says were taken from the inside of one of the
highest mountains in that country-a mountain
whose top was opened and turned off by the
earthquake, These petrified fish were found in
the middle of the mountain, with a deal of other
substances of similar character, several miles from
the sea, and hundreds of feet above water level."

THE $39,000 IN GOLD FOUND.
We are happy to learn from the New York Ga-
zette that the gold hais been found, under the fol-
lowing circumstances:-- .
As. the Rhode Island was coming down from
Albany on Saturday night, the engineer, Mr. Bar-


unet Smith, went into the engine room about 10
o'clock, to draw some oil from the can. On turn-
ing the cock, the oil run very slowly, and in a'-
tempting to cant it, he was surprised at its weight;
he accordingly removed the lid, and, examining
the interior with a light, discovered four bags ly-
S ing on the bottom. He at once concluded that
they contained part of the stolen money; and on
the arrival of the boat yesterday morning, he im-
mediately proceeded to the residence of Mr.
Schuyler, the agent of the Company, andlinform-
ed him of the discovery he had made. Mr. S. re-
paired on board without delay, and caused the
four.bags to be removed from the can. A further
examination was then made on board the boat,
which had been taken over to Jersey City for tlIe
purpose of receiving a supply of fuel, but the ba-
lance of the money could not be found. It was,


serious countenances of "citizens," as they went
p to give thie keys to their luggage, put one in
miad of a great play-house. One man's chest wa,-
ery heavy, and thle ministers of the law made
I:nay sly winks aund shrugs, as much as to say-
,We've got the chap." All were on tiptre. The
d was raised-and lo and behold-the honest fel-
low had all the kind implements of his trade, con-
istring of carpenter's tools of almost every de-
cription-but no gold. Next came an English
;en leman, whose trunk was very heavy. "Here','
he gold," went round the throng. The officers
raised the cover, and about $1400 in silver
exhibited themselves. "If you are satisfied that
silver is not gold, I'll thlnk you to lock nmy
runk, gentlemen." An old gentleman next came
inder the screw, who had a trunk in charge. It
was very heavy, and his nerves appeared much
disturbed. "I have got no key. gentlemen." Tlhat
was set down as proof positive that there was
'something rotten in Denmark." 'They forced
hlie lock, when a good lot of various iron teols for
gardening presented themselves. The old man
was the gardener of a gentleman of New York,
going to his home "for the season."
This made almost as much confusion among the
'law-limbs," as did t:ie loss of the battle of Wa-
terloo to the forces of Napoleon-and with about
he same effect, for they never gathered courage
o renew the attack in the "battle of keys." They
soon beat an inglorious retreat--though we have
not heard that any of them have yet been trans-
ported to the Island of St. Helena.

CURRENT COIN.
A writer in the St. Louis IRepublican of the
10th ultimo, in some very judicious remarks on
he advantage of adopting a uniform currency,
suggests that as no coins are so much used in traf.


fic as those of the value of one-eighth and one-
sixteenth of a dollar, and it can scarcely be doubted
that the necessity for small coins will always coln-
tinue, it is time for us to determine whether we
will have these necessary coins of our own, or for
ever depend upon a foreign mint to supply us.
IIe says if silver coins, equivalent in value to
the Spanish rial and half rial pieces, should be is-
sued from our mint, they should by all means be
stamped with brief specific names, by which they
may be universally known; and not, like these
Spanish pieces, bear different names in almost
every different state of the Union. We might
then hope to see one uniform mode of reckoning
adopted, in place of the diversity which now pre.
vails; and to have no more of those unintelligible
denominations-shillings and sixpences-nine.
penny and fourpence half-pennies-levies and
fips-bits and picueunes.
He also observes that-in our coinage of copper,
also, some improvement might be made. Our
half cents are entirely useless. In every part of
the United States they are considered too insigni-
ficant for currency. In place of them, therefore,
I would suggest the making of coins of the value
ofone cent and a half; which would be found con.
venient for the adjustment of fractions, and not
liable to thle objection of insignificance, where
copper coin is used at all. Besides, pieces of thiu,
value would correspond to the general rule of
subdivision ol coin; being as near as possible one-
fourth of the value of the smallest silver coin
above proposed.

A PLAIN LEUJSSON.
The Portsmouth Journal f urnishes a very hoone.
ly but practical illustrations ofttic chtiracier ofinuobm
aind their destructive tendency, in an anecdote of
a drunken seaman who was recently seen stagger-
ing through the streets of that town. The moral
is capital, though conveyed in a guise, as "plain
as a pipe stem." The anti-temperance tar was
obAirved butting his sconce now against the fence.
and then against a post, apparently beating hard
against the wind. 'I say, what are these things
placed here for, right in a fellow's way?" he ex-
claimed, rubbing his forehead after .prfintv se-
-vered'cltAl lt..ith uNBVMu4htt P-aceT
-" say, take 'em up, and put 'em wikre they
ought to be, inside the fence; that's the wsyt they
do in Kentucky; a pretty town this, where a man
must be.knocked down every step he takes, by
these blockheads. I say, take 'timaway!"
An admirable-exemplification of the spirit which'
invariably influences mobs. The laws of the land
are the line of posts which protect the citizen from
the incursions of the street Jehus. Let them be
once set aside, or put inside the fence, at the in
stigation of some drunken traveller whose course
they impede, and every one's life is in danger.
This is a lesson that Lynchers and levellers
should be taught to get by heart, and if too obsti-
nate to heed it, or too dumb to understand it, the
moral should be beaten into them by such legal
means as the law allows. Unless the spirit of mis-
rule which has been stalking over our country
receives a thorough and effectual check, and the
.whole tribe of Lynchers be broken up and dispers-
ed; whenever they dare to show themselves, it may
not be many years ere we sink, to the state of semi-
barbarism that noW disgraces Spain. Recent ac
counts, it will be seen, represent the condition of
'Madridas deplorable. The opponents ofthe'pre-
sent political party in power are put to great shifts
to save property and life. The stiletto of the as-
sassin ts not infrequently directed against their
life. A reign of terror is in existence, and every
thing carried by violent and bloody threats.

AN UNNATURAL SON.
We met recently in a distant village an instance
of cold and cruel neglect on, the part of an only
son, well calculated to excite abhorrence. With
the parent-an intelligent and venerable lady,
upwards of eighty years old, we' had long since
been acquainted, though a great length of time
has passed since -we last saw her. Passing a few
weeks in the vicinity of her residence, and hearing
of the forlorn and desolate condition of one whose
early days had been spent in the enjoyment of all
the comforts and elegancies of life, and whose lat-
ter hours should have been protected from the bit
terness of want, we called at her humble residence.
A mere painful exhibition has rarely met our ob-
servation; The once elegant and happy possessor
of wealth and its choicest comforts, blessed with
the smiles of a large family and surrounded by
friends among whom she moved as ene justly en-
titled to the respect and influence which she so
largely enjoyed, was now broken down in health
and spirits, beggared in fortune, and in her old
age forced toseek shelteramong strangers. When
we first met the old lady, she was seated among
the rough and boisterous labourers from a neigh-
bouring rail road, who though honest and respect-
able enough, were too much engrossed with their
own pursuits to heed the silent and uiolhtrusive
sorrows of one with whom they could feel no
icllowship; and whose associations and sphere of
life had been such as to cast off all communion
arising from congenial sentiments and habits.
She was alone amidst them. On 6ur entering,
she arose to receive us, but would have sunk
down but for our timely aid, overcome by the
combined efforts of disease, old age, and the men-
tial anguish of her yet sensitive mind. As she
irged us towards an humble corner where she
might be further removed from the noise and
smok f the motley group that filled the room,
we supported her tottering footsteps; indeed,
with the aid of a fair companion, who had ac-
companied us to this abode ol misery, and of
whom the aged sufferer spoke in terms of gratitude
as her "ministering angel," we rather dragged


her to a seat upon which she sank down, a pic-
ture of utter wretchedness. We never shall forget
the scene, or cease to remember the poor old wo-
man's faltering voice, as she depicted the utter
helplessness and desolation of her last days. "I
am here." she exclaimed, "left in my old age to
die without a soul near me with. whom I can

well got up. This work has been for years be-

extensive sale, and is sought for with avidity-it
may properly (as it has always been) be regarded
as a work of equivocal character. Its standard of
morals is none too elevated, and the details which
it gives of the scenes in the salons of France are
none too refined for "eyes polite."

PRACTICAL ESSAYS-No. 3.
BY A DISTINGUISHED MEDICAL PnACTITIONEII.
OF DtINKs.-The only drinks we shall notice
are water, milk, coffee, tea, chocolate, nmalt liquors
wine, and ardent spirits. It is superfluous at the
present day, when so much has been said by the
advocates of temperance on the subject, to dilate
on the advantages of water as a daily and con-
stant drink. Water is furnished us by nature in
great abundance, and no doubt was intended to
be the principal, if not the only drink for all ani.
mated beings.
It is allowed by all physicians to afford the most
wholesome and salutary beverage, which we can
possibly have, being the best solvent of our solid
iaod, il e at the same time it contributes to the
vigour and healthy action of the stomach. It is
of some consequence, in order to derive the great
est possible advantage from this element, that i-
0o pure, and what is called soft water.' Hrd wa-
ter, which has the power of decomposing soot,
lerivesr this quality from several earthy salt whicli
It holds in solution, the most important of which
is the Sulphat of Lime. These salts render the
water unwholesome, and 'less fit for the purposes
of nourishment and refreshment.
There cannot be the least doubt that the ordina-
ry substitutes for water, as tea, coffee, wine, &c.
are not so well fitted for this purpose, and are all
more or less injmurious. We do not mean to say
thit they are all very hurtful, but merely that they
are not so well adapted to our organization as
water is. Among other objections to the rejection
of water at our meals, and other times, as our or-
dinary drink, one of great importance is, that w-
are induced to drink more atnd oftener than we
otherwise would. Water was intended by nature
toquench our thirst, and when we are really thirsty,
nothing is so agreeable to the unadulterated taste,
as cool, pure water. At other times water is either
indifferent or absolutely nauseous. Those who
resort to other beverages, frequently drink, not be-
cause it is necessary, but because, to their vitiated
taste, it will be agreeable: thus we often see men
taking a glass of beer, wine, brandy and water,
&c., whose stomachs at tile time have not tile
least need of any kind of beverage,, and whose
functions, therefore, are impeded and injured by
it-precisely as it w-ould be injurious (only in a less
degree,) to take food when we did not need it.
These remarks may be applied not only to distilled
and fermented liquors, but to tea, coffee, and even
to lemonade, soda water, &c. Of course, we do
not mean to insinuate that these latter drinks are
in themselves injturious.but merely that inasmuch


averages are unhealthful, and which are the least
so. Their degree of adaptation to our constitu
tion might perhaps be arranged in the following
way:
1. Milk, lemonade, and soda water;--these may
be pronounced absolutely innocent, amnd only to
be objected to from the danger of one taking too
much of them.
2. Chocolate, tea, coffee;--the first of this class
is rather a nourishing article, not at all stimulat-
ing; amnd where it does not create nausea, (as it
somnuimes does) is free from any objection. It
seems peculiarly adapted to the nervous, delicate,
and those of a costive habit of body.
Tea.-There has been, at different times, consi-
derable variety of opinions among medical men,
respecting the effect of the habitual use of this
plant. Although now it seems to be generally
conceded, that black tea, if used in moderate quan-
tity with milk and sugar, (for these articles seem
in some degree to modify its qualities) is either
perfectly innoxious, or only slightly injurious;
and the opinion is equally unanimous that green
tea is decidedly unwholesome, and particularly to
persons of nervous temperaments. If two or three
cupfuls of the latter kind, of the ordinary strength,
be taken by a person unaccustomed to its use, he
will feel exceedingly uncomfortable and nervous
for a considerable length of time ; and if the quan-
tity much exceed this, violent and even dangerous
symptoms will be caused. This seems asufiicient
proof of its injurious quality, and of the destruc-
tive effects it must produce on those who use it
habitually, and in large quantities. There can
be no doubt that green tea is the worst of the dif-
ferent beverages which we are in the habit of tak-
ing at our meals. 'Th;s plant was first used in
England about the year 1666, and soon became a
fashionable drink from the example of Queen
Catharine, who had been accustomed to it in Por-
tugal. The immense quantities now used through-
ont the civilized world, are another proof how
easily fashion can introduce into daily employ-
ment articles which are naturally nauseous and
disagreeable.
Coffee.-This article, although like all others of
the class, it is decidedly less wholesome-than wa-
ter, or milk and water, but will do very well as a
drink at our meals, if taken in moderation, and
not too strong, or too hot. When employed very
strong, it is unquestionably injurious, as it im-
pedes digestion, stimulates the stomach, and gives
rise to or increases nervous feelings. There is
some discrepancy of opinion among writers on
Hygiene, as to whether tea or coffee is the most
unwholesome. It is iot perhaps of much practi-
cal consequence that this question should be de-
cidld wih mathematical accuracy, as both of them
are undoubtedly injuriits, and had better be
avoided by the nervous and dyspeptic patient.-
We have no doubt, however, that greeti tea, as a
general rule, is more apt than coffee to disagree
with the stomach.
Thn-ru is one observationwhich may be applied
to all these beverages, that we consider of great
consequence to be attended to, viz: that they are
aluiost universally in this country taken too hot.
Tea and coffee are both frequently drank at a tem-
perature so great, that our hands could not bear it
for a inomeni ; and yet we pour it do;vn upon the
mucous membrane of the gullet aand stomach,
which is naturally very delicate and susceptible.
This cannot but be injurious, as it will have a temn-
dency to produce inflammation, as it certainly has
to impede digesrion. Besides these evils, ex-
tremely hot drinks always injure the teeth, giving
rise to inflammation, and subsequent caries and
destruction of these important but delicate and
easily injured organs. We have carcely a doubt.
that this is the principal cause of the teeth failing
and becoming carious so much earlier in the Unit-
ed States (a remark oftan made by foreigners)
than in other parts of the world.
Soups and broths, made out of the different
kinds of meat, are wholesome and nutritive, and
answer, to a certain extent, both for solid and li-

sltippose that they are more suitable for the dys-
peptic than solid food; on the contrary, we are
decidedly of opinion, that as a general rule, to
which of course there are some exceptions, that
solid food is more'easily digested by the dyspeptic
than soups of any kind. Probably the principal
reason of this is, that soup dilutes the salivary and
gastric juices too much, and indeed diminishes
their quantity, which must of course impede di-
gestion, as these fluids are of so much importance
in that process. It is well known that the salivary
and gastric fluids flow in considerable quantity
during the period of digestion, and that this quan-
tity is a goolP deal dimininiished by using liquid
food, and so far as this effect is produced by soups,
they must be injurious.
3. Alcohol, whether in the form of ardent spi-
rits, wine, beer, or cider.
It is now ascertained, beyond all possibility of
doubt, by experiments made on a large scale, and
n every possible way, that alcohol in any and eve-
ry form is in a state of health, always not only un-
necessary, but, so fir as it has any effect, injurious.
Of course we do not mean to say, that a small
quantity of pure wine or cider, or even brandy,
will bring on a fit of sickness, or indeed perhaps
produce any appreciable injurious consequences,
but merely that a person .in health is better with-
out any stimulus of this kind, If but little be ta-
ken, of course but little injury will be suffered,
and perhaps this will be so slights to escape no
tice; ifa good deal be taken, and especially if it
be taken habitually, the consequences 'are deplor-
able in the extreme. This whole subject, how-
ever. is so well understood now, that it seems al-
most superfluous to say any thing upon it. We
will, therefore, confine ourselves to a very few re-
marks.


It has been asserted by some of the warm
(may we not say the ultra?) friends of temper-
ance, that alcohol is just as injurious in one form
as another; that brandy or rum is no worse than
wine ourcider, provided we take as much of the
latter as to amount to the same quantity of alco-
hol. For example, that a pint of brandy, which
contains fifty-three per cent. of alcohol, will do
no more harm than a quart of wine which may
contain 26J per cent., or seven pints of cider
which may contain 8 per cent. Now, a good
cause is rnevor advanced by statements wlich will
not bear the test (4f strict examination. We are
no advocates, as we have already stated, for the
use of alcohol it any form ; on the contrary, we
brilieve it, in health, always unnecessary, and so
far, as it has any effect, injuiions; but we have at


disorder; follow tihe nieo of pure wine, however
long indulluged in : to the concealed and unwilling
consumption of spirit, therefore, as contained in
tile %wines commonly drunk it this country, [G.1.]
is to be attributed the excessive previdence of
those hepatic affections, which are comparatively
little known to our continental neighbours.'
The least injurious form, therefore, in which
alcoholic stimulus can be taken, is pure light wine,
well brewed beer, forcee from narcotic poisons) or
clear, well-made cider. The worst form is that
of brandy, rum, or gin, (and among these there is
little to choose, tile effects of all, when taken ha-
bitually and in large quantities, being alike disas-
trous arnd appalling,) and the brandied wines,
such as Port, Sherry, and Madeira.
The following experiment, and a thousand
other illiustrationls could be adduced were it neces
sary, is sufficient to show that all stimulants of this
kind are injurious:
An ingenious surgeon selected two children in
perfect health, and of similar constitution, to one
of whom he gave every day, after dinner, a large
China orange, and to the other a glass of Sherry:
the result was a striking proof of the injurious ef
fects of vinous and alcoholic stimulus. T'he for-
mer continued to enjoy perfect health, while the
latter exhibited decided indications of a feverish
state of the system, with accelerated pulse, increas-
ed heat, high-coloured urine, and stools destitute
of the usual quantity of bile. The same effects
Ibllowed upon reversing the experiment.

Gossip aind News from Abroad.

In describing the obsequies of the wealthy Is-
raelite, Rothschild, the papers inform its that "an
extra number of watchmen, after the interment,
will be placed at tl-e gravy, for a length of time,
to prevent the committal of any sacrilegious act
towards the deceased. We suppose thisis a hint
to "our peoples" to keep their fingers off the

"THE RULING PASSION STROGo IN DEATHr_."--t
Alonzo Caneo, a Spanlish artist, may lie literally
said to have left ti.e ruling passion strong in death;
for, when the priest who attended him presented
the crucifix, he turned his eyes away, and refused
to look at it, because the sculpture was so bse'ly
executed, but asked for a plain cross, which being
brought to him, he devoutly embraced it and ex-
pired.
The Prince of Capua's marriage with Miss
Smith, is ascribed to repeated bitter quarrels be-

says he will cure his hair brained brother, whom
he threatens io keep on his regime of Irish pota-
toes.

AN Ewes-ful STATUTE.-At the late Assizes for
Cambridgeshire, two men were tried for sherp-
stealing, and were acquitted, because what they
stole wore hoggets-i. e. two year old ewes, and
hoggets are not mentioned in the statute A most

not conceive how it is that such ridiculous quib
bles are allowed to be available. Are two year
old ewes sheep, or not? If they are not sheep,
whatsare they? When sheep-stealing was pun-
ished by death, a prisoner in the North of Englaod
accused of it, was found guilty of manslaughter,
by a jury wishing to save his life. Here the rea-
son was obvious, though absurd; but in the case
above mentioned, the success of the quibble is a
disgrace to the law.
