subjects for royal favour or clrmency-if they do im
so, there is at once an end of that eatablihIment which was
instituted for the wisest and best of purpose, which was
frained on the soundest principles of humanity-om the
basis of mercy for that population, which the avarice and
cupidity of thi Parent State had forced upon our pre-
iitors. The hard labour of the workhoume, a il iuJ ur-
ly called, is the only legitimate mode of punishment over
and abue the scriptural infliction of forty ave ore."
This is the mode of punishment pointed out to our high
cliam-s to prevent transcression of the law, and to prevent
the indulgence of limteon in tie outrages or aggravations
which the rebellious or contumnacius slave il apt to pen-
tire on his owner. Always under he control of dhe
Magistrate, it offers a sure node of reforming the sinner,
and it is only in the neglect of this sholesnom discipline,
liht a few cams ol cruelty have appeared among a.-
Of those now incarcerated, most have Iben done with a
serious sacrifice of property, for the laudable purpose of
maintaining law and obedience, which is the end of it; but
to say that any' conpeneation can, or will be made, is ab-
surd, as we have uicient evidence to prove that the
British Government are, in the firt plece, too paninmo-
nious, if not too poor; and, in the next, oo dilamM .-
The Anti-Colonial object is to do mischief as crep na
possible.
To abolish, therefoor, this institution, which the Cole-
ital or Anti-Col mial Ofce contemplates, would he at-
tended with the meet disastrous conequences. Hefloe I
conclude, I cannot refrain from remarking on that maen
sure, which, dictated by humanity, and founded in sound
judgment, passed the House of Asembly in the las Ss-
sion, for permitting proprietors and managers to chain
their runaway slaves on the property, after proof aorded
before one or more Magistrar. This wl be the ams
of bringing many to a proper em of duly--of reclaim
ing them before they are hardened in sin; and I aver,
without fear fa contradiction, will keep hundreds in the
bosoms of their families, who would otherwise par the
remainder of their lives in the durtace of die Workhese.
It thus appeals, lhle every thing i in operation which ca
prevent an accumulation of criminals in our Workhoeat
but if the Anti-Colonial schemes are put in execution, we
shall have them filled to suffocation-our Slve Courts
will have a perpetual sitting-the bonds of society will he
loosened to destruction-we shall be falling willing virdti
to the macunatlson of our eemies-it will bin rin
premiunes for every desariptioa of crimte-nd, sbovea
I would suggest, that although perferly in accordance with
the tart of our enemies, it is, of al aIl hrs, the period at
wliichl rch a serious innovation ought not to have been
attempted.
UMBRATUS.

Picture of P'ari, 1794.-I arrived in Paris towards
the middle of August. When I left that city in 1792
the people, freed from the wholesome restraint of the
laws, intiuincaed with fury, and elated with their abomi-
iable triuniphs, were inadly enjoying a sauvge lice-
tiousneus and, ever threatening, ever oppresive, mst
bouods to deir tyranny. What a change did I ao fund
after tie short space of tree years! Scar:ity was
terrible, misery at th highest pitch, and die dethroned
sovereign scarcely dared to complain. The people were
no better than a vile rabble, devoid of energy, shrinking
under the rod that clastised them, but having not emn the
thought of resistance. In the morning, the city preseaned
a deplorable spectacle: thousands of womes and children
were siing on the rtoas before tie doons of the beln'
shops, waiting their turn for receiving a darly bought bit
of bred. More than one-hlf of Pari lived an peasea.
Paper money was without value, and hbulion whmt cir-
cultion: This lated naly a year. A still sranger igl struck
Ihe observer's eyes. The unfortunate priuaenl d reco-
vered their lihbrty, and having escaped almost cereLm
death, they enjoyed their good lurk with a of erarcy.
The danger to which they Iad hasI so lb aepind
excited a lively interest in their favour; but vanity, sa
ingenious in France, discovered the means of turning their
situation to advantage. Each person pretended to have
sulffred more than hu neirhbimr ; and as it was the* feshion
to have been puereuted, a great many people who had
remained safe in their hiding-places, or had boogesi their
security by hIwe concessions, boasted of having languished
in pris.n. An imnipmese number of innocent Iernos had,
in fart, perished on th- sr ffid; but Ifcredit could haer
been gives to the acciumnts propagated by awtred and
vanity, one might have thought thla on-halfof Paria had
imprisoned or ietchered the ollthr half Conafmiou was
at this pi'riod at its highest pilch in sc'iey : all diliarlions
of rank had diusppeared; w.illh had changed posisssrs;
and as it was silldannernes tobosul of hinh, and to recall
the memory of former gentility, due pumnots of nrwl)-

BIR JAMES C. MYTH A MATCH-MAKER.
A fw days ago, Mr. James Reid, a planter upon
Sdaes isle, petitioned His Eicaeancy the Governor,
fwr t re n al of hi own, and also the slaves belonging
Sa Min Davis, ( free black woman), residing upon the
me Ilaod, to n estate on this Island, recendy purchased
by bir; maker the two gangs were moved together,
separation of families would necem rily take place, and
th agresm be made unhappy and dissatisfied.
Wkhtor Hi Eicellency was les under the influence
t his angry paenios then OMal, and wished to excite a
lugh at Mr. Reid's exprse ; or whether, to gratify sone
bae gling, he soaglh to wound a quiet, inofeoive being,
who, if be in a sIlr-mwsr, perhaps nats his dependuats
with grater kiadn than Sir Janme is id to triet one
mreclaely connected with him, we do not know; and can
only add, tai the former intention is a unworthy the re-
prnmeaalve of Hi Majesty, a the latter is disacaful to
Sih coramtr of a gendenms. Hi Excelleny after ap-
proving of ti mativs which ieduenced Mr. Reid, in de-
siring the removal of dhe two pop of slaves together, ob-
surves, that u Mni Davis owns no land on this Island,
he could st legally grant permimaom fur such removal;
amui as 68 slaveI o die two ovn s amre intermarrisd
tha llty cannot be eparrted without a separation of ra-
ulies, the only mode which occrrn to him by which the
law can he complied with, and the widses of all parties be
midesr would he for a permaneu Lgal camerism" to
the place between Mr. Reid and Mis Davis, when the
had and slaves would become joint property, and the
dave could he legally aoved froa Andrm Island to New

Mr. Haultihlt,shall you and I have glss of wine Wit

single glass of sherry, is forgotten, for ever and ever,
the previous irritation. It is not by the words, so much u
by the tone and manner of saying them, that the replai
makes the officer feel how anxious he is to have the god
understanding restored, or that he regrets what has petal.
Of course, if the officer be not one of those pigheaded d
inflexible fellows, upon whom all sense of kindness is
wasted, he eizes the bottle, and 611ing his glass, replies,
SWith all my heart air." And there, in all probability,
the matter ends. The above example is one in which tI
superior is supposed to have been wrong: but, as may be
imagined, the opposite case will often happen likewise-
I have seen an officer go on, for several days together,
purposely teasing his captain, but all the time taking the
greatest possible care to keep within the law. Who, I
masy ask, that has had to do with command of any kind,
whether afloat or on here, in the navy or in the amiry,
has not felt the provocation of such petty hostility 1 For
my part, I can compare it to nothing but the stiogiag f
a moslqito, which you spend half the night in tryingto
ratch, losing your mat and your temper to no purpo,
owing to the dexterity of your antagonist, who thn .u.s

Sunday comes about, all is settled. On this day the cap-
tain invariably dines in de ward-room; and, when onrs
there, he is received, as a matter of course, with attention
by all-Mr. Mosquito inclusive. It is the general custel,
on these occasions, to unbend a little of the traigs*
lars lness of discipline, so that a kind of regulated, starch.

This the captain rather encourages, though of counrs, i
a cautilou way, but more than ie ever permits himmelta
allow at his own table. During dinner, all time olies
drink wine ith their guest; and when this office of hospi-
tality i performed by the tormenting officer, above ai
lidedl to, tie captain, if he be a man of sense, will set
fail to play off a litlir of his agreealieness upon the per-
son wlai has been buzzing round him during the prrc-
ding week. By this means, or some one of the nombhr.
le devices which people who are net together profeIsed-
ly to be social, always know how to hit upon, all erll
srole as this, and many others, may be wiped off. With-
