OIL! sweet are:the dew.drops, in early morn shining,
And sweet is the rose just blushing to light;
But sweeter by far-when my heart is repining-
Are the rays of fond love, from her eye beaming bright.

And beauteous the stars on the robe of fair even,
As they sparkle and glitter-sweet gems of the night;-
But more like the lights that illuminate heaven,
Are the looks of sweet Lizza, that ravish my sight.

The moon is abroad, all softness and beauty, .,.
SAnd purity streams from her broad shining face;
But thou mays't compare-in love's gentle duty-
'Wtlt 'hLI tIM, th'soAivess{-an,*consummate grace.

Oh i fondly I love Ic, 'tis romance and passion-
My heart at thy shrine instinctively kneels;
Forgive, dearest lady, this open confession,
'Tis the fervor and madness love never conceals.

The heath is all lonely and drear, love,
There's nobody stirring or near, love,
Awake, then, and lend thy soft ear, love,
'' And open ihy lattice to me.

Disdain not thy lover to hear, love,
His heart is, oppress'd with, sad care, love,
In pity, then, shed a kind tear, love,
And open thy lattice to me.

The stars are departing the sky, love;
The night owl is ceasing his cry, love, "
Then show but one ray of thine eye, love,
And open thy lattice to me.

The night'is fast passing away, love,
And losingits gloom in the day, love,,
Awake, then, and list to my lay, lovet'
"' And open thy lattice to me.

What eye that beheld that star arise but became ani.
mated 'and fixed in its gaze upon its transcendent beau-
ty-its wavering light--its divine: struggles to gleam in
the ascendant! [tas feeble glimmer was first discerned
amid the storm and tempest; occasionally, as the wrath-
ful clouds would'sepiirate, its faint ray of' youthful light
and-hope would dart forth, prFinki as wit Lhe ro-a-tc
blush of morn, the thick panoply of gloom, and finding
its way-to the deep recesses of :many a patriot bosom!
The thunders of. tyranny and the itornis of oppression
being well nigh .exhausted,. this bright and beautiful,
this lone star, was seen standing out upon the broad and
silvery hv.n ofiofTexias, in solitary; but bold'telief.
N.Ssister star .was near to lend the light of her counte-
nance, or greet her with an% approving smile! Not a
beam which liemanated from its effulgence was borrowed
-not a ray '.flight did it cast over a benighted 'land,
but was. given forth ,from its own brilliant and exhauat-
lees orbit!: 'Brighter and purer did it shine, as it contin-
ued io rise and mount to'the"hgh heaven of hope and
promise, but not 'without sometimes almost failing to
give token of its presence.. Itsflickered as with expiring
cnergy'over the fierce and unequal:corfliet at Conception,
It was seen faintly glnimering over o the gory platin of
(uliuad. and enan4in put the last ray ofits, hope, upon
the awful scene of VtheAlamo. it move pn-dig y
through all these scenes of bloody strife--presided 'at
each mort1l combat--cheerd the weak and despairing,
&d4 shone; with fearful dlimness 'in .that lourr whenjthe
light of mortality of a Fnn-im ai d his bravelcompaiionk,
was shrouded' in the night of etenal infamy' !", '" .
V. B-pt lo! wherei next doth, gleam. thi, single stair ?
Over theimmortal struggle of SanJacinto it bangs sue-
peided: its light' has relilmed-its rays enkindle with a
sweeter, brlter,-qe enirancing fire-the battle rages
-.tho fight Its desperate, deadly-1he neighing of.thp,wr

startling, en4liusistic cry of rememberr the Alamo :"
all went up to,heaven n ,a slexpnp league .n4d: as they
passed away, the Lone Stafv6f Texas'?. blazed forth in

It is true that the incidents by flood and, field of the
anti revolutionary ages ate 'not so thrilling,' lithey are
far more interestingto'a mind imbued with the true spir.
it either of poetry or philosophy- For'4ht.eirere the
ages-,these the materials out of which the revolution
created'this great nation.
SAs history, therefore, is almost silent upon these things
which we most desire to know concerning these prima.
tive settlers, let us wander for a while over the scenes
where their bones lie, and see, if we like the Geologists,
can gather from a single bone the size, characters and
habits of the animal' to which it belonged.
Every one knows that Jamestown was the scene of
the first trials and misfortunes encountered by the pio.
neers of Virginia; yet how many of her boasting sons,
have ever had the curiosity Oven to visit the spot. Not
one in. five thousand. Sordid avarice and pride, broken
down by extravagance, have pointed to the west as., the
scene of a golden harvest, and thousands rush by this in-
teresting place, too indolent to travel'a few miles out of
their way-or too deeply absorbed by the engrossing
passion of the day.
Occasionally indeed a pilgrim wanders to the silent
and almost solitary island. He looks around him in vain
for the ancient capital of the Old Dominion. In vain he
looks for the streets-the hotels-thlie ware-houses, or
the palace. By watching the tide some small remnants
of the old palisade may be discovered beneath 'the pres-
ent bed of the river; nor are these all the changes that
time has wrought upon the face of the countryy. The
hill, mrom. wichb historians describe the tebel army to
have cannonaded the capital, has totally disappeared.
Here and there over the face of the surrounding coun-
try you may discover a solitary and gigantic remnant of
the primative forest-but like every other ancient fea-
ture of the place, blasted and riven by the elements.
Of all the once proud Capital of Virginia. nothing re-
mains but the belfry.of the church and the grave-yard
with a few well preserve monuments. Among'these,
that of Col. PHIrzP LUDWELL stands conspicuous;, setting
forth his titles, honors and armorial bearings, egntrasting
strongly and painfully, the times in which they originat-
ed, with the revolutionary ages which have since swept
over the land.
H-ow little did the pious relatives who erected these
frail memorials of his family greatnefs, imagine, that in
less than a century and a half, they should be looked
upoi'with mockery and derision by the passing cirowd,
anid that all in their institutions which-gave them value
at that day should only be remembered in ,a succeeding
age by these very insignia or the records of history and
the fleeting' tales of tradition.
There' are many more monuments of less' pretension
within the crumbling wall, and over one poor Yorieka
plentiful crop of mint has sprung up-r-whe.ther germinat-
ed in a frolicksome freak of nature, or first planted by
his' boon companions, tradition telleth not, but it is im-
possible to look upon his perennial monumeni; without
contrasting it ludicrously with the. mp;e fading vestiges
of family pride ..
The general appearance of the sight of the town is
melancholy in'the extrefne-vegeiitation itself'seemir to
hays been cursed and blighted along the ancient location
of the, streets, and all' that.points out the spot to the An-
tiquarian as the scene of civilized life in a former age, are
a few stunted and decayed exotic trees. '
There is'a solitary'two story house; built apparently of
brick;fronq-the old,''ins, and the family that-now occu-
pies it are the only tenants of .an island that once con-
tained the whole white population of this continent.-
There arc two' or three shanitees near the margin -of the
river, and a wooden dock with a. broad platform extend.
ing out into the stream for he convenience of passnguiegrs
landing from Norfolk or Richmond. jHere the stage
from Williamsburg is usually found wailing to convey
those who desire, to visit another and still, later Capital
of Virginia in i'semi-ruinous state, butdf'this hereafter.

in the foundations of ruinous houses, but not the smallest
vestige of a such mound can be seen.' Not a paving-or
curb stonm,. 'Not even an old cannon sunk into the cor-
ner of a cross street, marks out the place where such an-
gle -was formed. All i bleak, solitary and desolate.
The old church-lower (itself in ruins and overrun' With
ivy,)' stani'ds the sole m'nionur'ents. The'inside'of this old
churchi;likeitsyounger sister atWilliamsburg, doubtless
contained many marble slabs against its walls telling of
the ,deed_ and virtues of those who sleep beneath its
walls, 'but t lfsae now' require'a'monument to tell'of their
departure. .' This old tower is square -and seems to have
formed anuinegral portion of.the buiJdiiir, which like, all
those of the,same era. was very probably built in the
shape of a cross,' or more properly speaking,'bf their letter
T. If my supposition is correct, this-reimnatt must have
formed, the'snimminit of'.the beam or main timbec- 'of the
cross, ,and consequently wa the belfry. I- draw, this
conclusion, because itis too narrow to have formed either
of'the wings of the cross, anrd' much more s6 to' have
been the main entrance to the building. Many of the
old churches and rnins of churches of that era have a

doeth all in nature,-prey upon one another. How then

The little blue flower had began to grow melancholy
at this sad tale, but nevertheless she soon rallied.'her
spirits as she looked around and perceived all was lappy
about her, and opening her pretty petals to kiss thbqpass-
ing zephyr, began an address, which no doubtvwouiid
have been a -very pretty one, had it not been interrupted
by another speaker. The little blue flower looked, around
and perceived that the. rivulet at her feet which had
been running on so quietly in its course, had suddenly
stopped, and raising her pretty eyelashes-0al"besprinkled
with diamond drop, gazed wistfully at tham[nild and for
once complaining 'white flower. "You especially," re,-
peating the last words of the .mild white flower, in a low
twittering voice...' "You especially, are prayed upon by
all others, without the privilege of returning in kind or
receiving, aught, from them." Fie upon thee, pretty
flower, thou art as complaining as mortals and with as
little reason'. 'Iast not thou received from the Sun thy
beautiful coloring, and from the winds thy sweet o6dour,
and-from the earth thatwell.proportioned form and'grden

Sir,--The money market has not recovered from the
shock it received by the intelligence brought by the
Cambridge, and you will perceive by the files of papers
taken out by the President. that wa-fava firthr+andrv *
dy to make the breach wider between thie two countries
on this side of the water as well as on yours. These ef-
fusions are, however, not to be taken as the opinion of
the reflecting part of our community, although it must
be admitted that there is a considerable section of our
aristocracy that would not be displeased, or rather thoy
would feel gratified, by a rupture on any terms or con.
editions. The most intense anxiety prevails amongst the
mercantile and monied classes, to learn tile result of the
resumption of specie payments bythe suspended banks
of Pennsylvania, on the 15th ult. The view taken of
the affairs of the United States Bank here is certainly
not su gloomy as on your side of t ie water,'fut thie de-
cline in the value of the shares tothe extent'of twelve
per cent, has so far shaken confidence, that there are few
buyers at nearly the corresponding depression in our
market. A good many sales have been effected as low
as .X11, but they havy been chiefly made by small hold.

The speculation at Liverpool, which had enhanced the

out a failure for the present.
The case of McLeod, it will be seen, -has been the sub.
ject of debate in Parliament, arid the Iondond- papers
generally, are loud, in their denunciations.
The London Morning Herald of the 8th thus concludes
an article on the subject of the imprisonment of McLeod:
As to the plea put forward by Mr. Forsyth, of the
State of New York having rights independent of the
federal government, in vindication of which the author.
cities there can try and hang British subjectsfor acts
avowed to have bIeen committed byt he orders of their
own government, it',will 0i6t bear a moment's investiga.
tion, or, if it deserves an answer it is this--that if the
Crown of Great Britain be .insulted and aggrieved by
the State of Nsw York, in the person of Col McLeod,
'the State of New York must answer to Great Britain
for the outrage; and if the other States of the Republi.
can Union -should make common cause with, that of

Viscount Melbourne-I simply reply to 'the question
put to me by the Noble Earl, without entering at present
into a discussion on the facstand .arguments by which
that question was introduced % It is true that her Majes.

authorities of New York, and at he has also been col"
inltted on a charf'&i6riaon ammffdura., stated tlo'iAvd'_
been committed by him on the occasion of the destruction
of the steamer Caroline. Immediately on hearing, of the
capture and detention of this individual, Mr. Fox, her
Majesty's Mmister at Washfigton, demanded hmilibeta.
tion from the Federal Government, and the-reply which
he received was, that the matter entirely rested with the
authorities of the State of NeW York, and that the Fed.
eral Government had not tne power, if it had the inclin-
ation, to interfere. Thus the matter stands at present,
What it may be the intention of her Majesty's Govern.
went to do under such circumstances, your Lordship#:
will not, I am sure, expect me now to state--(Cheers)-
but the Noble Earl and your Lordships may rest assured
that they will take every measure necessary .to securer
the safety of her Majesty's subject, and fimly to uphold
the honor of the British nation, : .(oud cheers.).. ,

Lord Stanley rose and said-Seeing the NoblelLori, -

of so important a nature, put at a period so critical, that,
I am compelled to preface the question bywbL--tatf.

mit. If I go one single step beyond, the rulesof the "
House I hope the Speaker will have the kindness to stop
me. It will be in the recollection of the House that itn
the latter part of the year 1837, at the time when, by the
gallantry of the: troops both of tae line and; the militia,

The past week has been unusually dull in general bu.
stneu. The Cotton market decidedly flat. The first
part of the week we were without news entirely, save
now and then a floating rumor of war with England,
which caused the holders of Cotton to hold on with in.
creased tenacity. But few sales have been made and
those at reduced prices ; the news by the British steamer
President at New York, being of an unfavorable charac.
ter, and the Charleston and Augusta papers of the 12th
and 13th showing a decline of I to I cent.
The fair quotations of our market is 9j to 10jc.
The Moucy Market is without alteration. Florida
funds in statu quo-Georgia, the regular currency with
us, for tho very good reason that wo have nothing else
in the likeness of money.
We have heard of no suspension bepond Columbus
with the exception of the Georgia Rail Road Bank.
The Munroe R. R. Bank is deemed to be broken-burst.
cd-absquatulated. It in no go" in this market.
In relation to the suspension of the Columbus Banks,
the Argus of the I Oth says:
Well, our banks have suspended-except the Phoenix
Bank. In relation to this, we have only to say, as we
have said of other banks; we hope the Governor will
have the nerve to execute the law. Banks which cannot
or will not answer the purpose for which they were es.
Published, ought not to be allowed the extraordinary pri.
vileges which have been granted them. One thing how.
ever. may be truly said of the banks of this place; they
hive made a fair bona fide effort to pay specie; as long
as they pretended to pay, they paid to all who demanded;
this is no reason however why they should be exempted
from the operation of the law. That they are unable to
redeem their bills prove, either that banking is a busi-
nes' which ought not in any shape to be carried on, or
that these banks have been mismanaged. They have
been granted privileges that are denied to the citizen, in
return for which, they were to confer upon the country
certain benefits; whether for want of ability or for want
cf disposition, is no matter; suffice it, that they have
failed to do what they promised to do, and the privilege
ought no longer to be allowed them.
FRIDAY, March 6,-6 r. u.
In the stock market there has been but a small busi.
nero doing at an immaterial change in rates. U. S.
Ilank 'improved i per cent; Stonington 1j per cent;
North American Trust and Banking Company per
cent; Delaware and Hudson declined 1 per cent; Har.
1im n per cent; Indiana Sterling bonds, 51; Illinois 92 59.
There remains considerable uncertainty in regard to
red back money. Many of the brokers refuse to buy the
western money at all; and the rate is generally from 3
to 5 discount. The stoppage of the Western Bank of
New York at Rochester, seems to have created distrust,
which the evident" kiteing" between the Albany agents
ofoomeof the banks and their correspondents in this city,
has increased. The comptroller, we trust, will take
prompt notice of this. state of things.

Kr FLORIDA MONEY-Life and Trust and Union bills
-received for Subscriptions to the Journal.
The events of the last few years have produced a state
of things in Florida, which will require us to have at
Washington a man of high character for integrity, and
one of untiring industry, with business habits.
-It is of. far greater importance now, than it has hitherto
beenf, that our Delegate should possess these qualifica.
tiono, VWe. must all be convinced of this. We have
much to solicit from Congress, both as a Territory and
as individuals.-Floridian.
Most true, and very well spoken, good Doctor. We
agree with you perfectly, and hence the earnestness with
which we continue to press the claims of GEORGE T.
WARD. And we are happy to inform our friend of the
Floridian, that we learn from the West that Ward's
prospects are daily brightening, and that his recent visit
to the counties of Washington, Walton and Eacambia,
has gained for him numerous votes-a gain that will
doubtless swell his majority, and render certain his elec.
tion. So that the people's loving friend-the editor of
the rabid 1 Floridian,"-may congratulate himself upon
being represented, after next May, by "a man of high
character for integrity," &c.
That therinterests of Florida are daily increasing in
numbers and importance, all know and will admit. "We
have much to solicit from Congress, both as a Territory
and as individuals," and it is really important that we
should be represented in Congress by the best talents of
the Territory, and that the man sent there as our Dele-
gate should possess an influence which can be made to
tell, in the National Council, strongly in favor of his con-
stituents. Such a man. we hold Ward to be. He pos.
sesses integrity and talents of a high character, as we
have before said, and, as we candidly believe, could car.
ry to Congress and exercise there, an influence, on be-
half of Florida, which would elevate her character and
promote her interests.
We do not wish to be represented by an Eastern man;
we ought not to be-we cannot be fully and fairly repre.
sented by an Eastern man. Upon this point we appeal
to the people, in all seriousness and candor. East Flo.
rida, although at present forming a part of the Territory
proper, is yet alien from us, in feeling, habit, and inter.
est. The Island of Cuba sympathizes as much with
Middle and West Florida, as does East Florida. She
prays for division-division at the Suwannce: she would
be set off to herself, separate and alone. She opposes all
legislation which has for its aim and end the benefit of
any portion of either the Middle or West; and for the
truth of this last remark, we appeal confidently to every
member of the late Legislative Council. Where then
the fitness, or reason, or propriety, of Florida being re.
presented in Congress by a man from the extreme East,
a section of the Territory foreign in its population, ]an.
guage, wishes and interests? And further still, where
the ratio of representation, the equality of taxation, be.
tween Florida proper, as we may justly call all that por.
tion of Territory lying west of the Suwannee,-densely
populated and yielding much wealth,-and an isolated
strip of barren country, sparsely populated and without
resources! Let us look at this subject for a moment,
T'ra.W Cv ..... r4 -*- f~M. Btre-rponBV-dUFltfe^alB
many legal votes as does East Florida. Franklin coun.
ty contains 3000 inhabitants. Look at the, importance
of our own city. We export 100,000 bales of Cotton :
we import 500,000 barrels of merchandi-e, which is for.
warded up the River annually. Some 20 steamboats
run out of our port, and 50 to 60 sail of vessel are an.
gaged in our regular trade. Apalachicola, herself, pays
more tax than East and South Florida combined. And
shall we select a man to represent our interests in Con-
gress, who has lived all his days in East Florida-the
extreme East-at St. Augustine! The Floridian would
palm upon us Mr. Levy-and in the extract which we
quote from that print, and which we have made the cap
tion of this article, would fain have us to believe that
4, Mr. Levy is just the man to attend to our interests."
So far from that however, no man of common sense
would presume Mr. Levy to be at all acquainted with
our'interests or wishes; he must, be perfectly ignorant of
both--Or as much so at least, as a man would be brought
from Jamaica, Hindoston, or Palestine. No, no, Mr.
Floridiaii ,you can't-put that bug upon the people. If
you art crazy upon the subject of banks, think not that
the people. are equally mad and foolish in relation to a
proper person to represent them-in Congress.
"' We have hitherto advocated the admission: of Florida
into the Union one and; entire. Wie have ever been in
favor uf State .Government, and opposed to division.
But rather that/lee an Eastern man elected to Congress,
adUd the weighaty akndextensive interests of the Middle
and Weal ncrificed to the overweening ambition and
selfishnessoffthe East, we would go for Jivision. '
'The representative: of a people should be" one of 'that
people iand during all of th. t~ine inl .which he is-not
engagedin Congress, he should dwell amongst them,
a~nd familiarize'himself with all their wants, so as to be

engaged in the service- of her Majesty, and who filled the,
situation, I think, of sheriff of one, of the counties, but
who, so far as I have ben' able to ascertain the circumr-

learnt'from the public papers that a correspondence had
taken place between Mr. Fox' the British Minister at
Washington, and Mr. Forsyth, the American Secreta.

having refused to deliver him up. Mostviolent speech.
es had been made on the subject in the American Con-
gress, not.only against this country but attackingMr.
McLeod himself, so that it would be impossible almost
but that he should fall a victim to the-prejud'ides excited
against him. He (the Earl of Mountcashel) had a com-
minication with Capt.Drew, who had attacked the Car.
oline, and had understood from him that McLeod was
not one of the party engaged in capturing the Caroline,
but that he "was on shore at the time. in the execution
of hiadety. He'trusted'the Government would act in

UatAd. States whieh correspondence has been furnished
to the public In the American papers, there can be no ob.
jeoction to lay before' Parliament those papers that are
already before the public. (Laughter.) Bgt this is de.
perture from what I consider an important rule in re-
gard to the international affairs-(Hear, hear)-and one
which may operate injuriously to national interests, to
lay before Parliamnent documents relating to pending
discussions; but, as I have before said, some of these
having been already furnished, as respects them there
"an be no objection. I think it important to make, with
reference to the notice to Mr. For sytb, one observation.
The Noble Lord said he believed Mr. M'Leod was not
one ol the party by whom the Caroline was attacked.
My information goes precisely to the same conclusion;
but with regard to thle ground taken by Mr. Forsyth, in
replying to Mr. Fox, I think it right to state that the
American Government might have considered this trans-
action as a transaction to be dealt with between the two
Governments, by demands for redress by one, to be gran.
ted or refusc4 by the other, and dealt with accordingly,
or it might have been considered, as the British author-
ities consider proceedings between American citizens on
the British side of the border, as matter to be dealt with
by the local authorities. But the American Government
ho the former course, by treating this matter as one
to be decided between the Governments, and this is the
ground on which they are entitled to demand redress
from the British Government for the acts of its subjects.
I assurethe House that on a matter of such extreme
difficulty it would be improper for me to enter into fur.
other remarks or observations, and I shall therefore con.
tent myself with answering the Noble Lord's questions
by stating the matters of fact I have just inmntioned.
Eord Stanly-The Noble Lord has not auawered one
question at all. One question, and one of great impor.
tance, I asked was, whether tihe Govcrnment has taken
any, and if so, what steps for the protection of Mr. Me.
Leod ? (Hear, hear.)
Viscount PaLmeraton said-Sir. a cas..poytI-t ;tr"
ilar ia principle to the present was expected a year and
a half or two years ago, and instructions were sent at that
time to Mr. Fox, on which he founded the cominunica.
ties he made to the American authorities. Of course
the House will suppose, I trust, that her Majesty's Go-
vernment will send-they have, indeed, sent-certain
instructions; but till we get the conclusion of the cor.
respondence it is impossible to send final instructions. I
trust the House will believe the Government will send
such further instructions as they may think it to be their
duty to do, but I assure the House I am not prepared
now to state formally what those instructions are. (Hear.
Mr. Hums wished to ask one qucsti'n of the Noble
Lord, but before doing so he must request the House to
suspend their judgment on the case brought before them
by the Noble Lord till they ha-l before themoin the whole of
the papers on the subject. The question he wished to
ask was this :-It appeared by the papers which he had
In his possession, that in January, 1838, a motion was
made in the House of Representatives, calling upon the
Government to place on the table of the House of Repre-
sentatives all the papers respecting the Caroline, and in
consequence of that motion certain papers which had
been received frne Mr. .tevanrn, hwd hIan 114A an tha
table of the Mouse on the 15th of May, together with a
letter from that gentleman. What, therefore, he wished
to kne.w was, what Mr. Stevenson's instructions were
upon which ho acted as hlie had done? As to the whole
subject he hoped the housee would nut enter into any
discussion until the whole of the documents were before
Viscount Palmorston said-I rather think that my
lon. Friend will find in that correspondence that in.
structions from the American Government weregiven to
Mr. Stephenson to abstain from pressing the subject.

ry for tin Cotn.es whether there were not officer o.f her
Majisty'sarfty and navy engaged in the affair of the
Caroline, snd wounded in that service; and further,
-whether they had received the same pensions as they
w4uld hare received if they' had suffered such wounds

that occasion, rnder the orders qf the colonial author.
tik, and that some of them were wounded in that ser.
vice; but he had naot heard they had received any pen.
M. McLaoi.-Lord Stanly wished to know if the
Noble Lord opposite, the Secretary for: Foreign Affairs,
would reconsider his answer of last night, with reference
to the correspondence between this Government and
*that of the United States, relative to the capture of Mr.
McLeod. Ho wished likewise to ask distinctly whether
the Noble Lord had taken steps for the protection of Mr.
McLeod against the proceedings then troiner on aiin-int
Lord Palmerston stated that a similar case to that of
J. M'Leod was about to happen about a year and a hall
sgo, and insructions applicable to that case were sent to
Mr. Fox from the Government, but were not required, and

Our own country, like Great Britain, would be com.
paratively nothing without a Navy. Her independence,
it is true, was achieved by bold spirits and daring bands,
fighting by their hearthstones for freedom with the bright
eyes of their wives and little ones, encouraging them to
unparalled exertions and endurance for their protection:
but, once achieved, it was maintained aione by the grad-
ual creation of a maritime force, the necessity of which
to ensure respect for our new position, the wise Fathers
of the Republic well foresaw, and the immense import.
ance and utility of which, in every point of view-com-
mercial as well as hostile,-every succeeding year has
vividly demonstrated. We have followed the example
of the another country in our admiration of a gallant
Navy, but-and the peaceful and unambitious policy of
our government may account for it-we have fallen far
short of her in its practical exhibition. We have no de.
sire for foreign conquests; we have no wish to boast of
colonial ,and distant possessions, won by the sword and
bayonet, and similarly retained; we are opposed even to
extending the territory of our Union-it is sufficiently
large for every good, honest, and useful purpose; still,
it is not in the promotion of such schemes only that a
great and efficient Navy becomes of peculiar service.-
We may yet find our negligence in this matter a source
of national regret; perhaps of national dishonor. We
may discover the difficulty too late to enable us to pun-
ish aggression with eclat, or even to repel with suitable
promptitude an invasion of our soil! We hope it may
never be the case, still, it is possible. Tho picture is a
disagreeable one, but it is not less the limning of truth.
If in 1808 and '9 our present naval force had been in
existence, France would not have captured our merchant.
men, nor England impressed our seamen; nor in conse-
quence of the latter unjustifiable, and insulting treatment
of our national flag, would the second war have occur-
red which cost us little less than two hundred and fifty
millions of dollars. But, since that date, the naval force
of the two nations alluded to, has increased immensely
tey9R01 t "ta05o. of qt jBwA54jdJ,"Ahene we really stand
in a worse relative position, as regards our ability to pro-
tect our rights upon the ocean, than we did in the days
of our c-untry's feebleness, and the Republic's youth!
This is all wrong, and we may.yet have reason to re-
pent it. Though we should never be ready to provoke a
quarrel we should always be prepared for its contingen-
cy, in case one cannot be avoided without a forfeiture of
our principles and our privileges. None are so likely to
go unmolested-none are so much respected-as those
whom all know tobe constantly on the alert,-who have
ever in abeyance the means and the disposition for a
summary and vigorous defence. A war now, would not
resemble the wars of olden time. The introduction of
steam as an agent in the navigation of seas, to say no-
thing of its application to the discharge of guns, shells,
&c. is as great an era, in the history of war, as the dis-
covery of gunpowder, and its effects will necessarily be
as important. Frigates and ships and all the smaller
paraphernalia of maratime armamrnt will sink into insig.
nificance before the magnificent operation of this new
power; and it gives us pleasure to note that our govern-
ment is not insensible to the fact. Still, we are immense-
ly behind our old antagonist even here. We have one
ataani vessel ready for use, (and if the truth must be
told, such is the defective character of her machinery, a
48 hours voyage is about all she dare attempt) and two
other very large ones near completion at our Navy Yard,
and that of New York. Three in all, while England has
fifty.one in commission, ordinary, and building! This
number c.mn be increased at pleasure to the enormous ex-
tent of two hundred! (a more formidable armament than
the world has ever before witnessed,) since among other
means the whole of the larger class of steam ships con-
tracted to be employed in the mail service are required
to be so built and fitted, as to be immediately converti-
ble into vessels of war, and the Admiralty have even
the power under the contracts,, to purchase them for such
purposes whenever their services may be considered re.
quisite. Even the British Queen, the Acadia, the Bri.
tannia, the President, &c. &c. all peaceable ships at
present, and engaged in the quiet transportation of let-
ters and passengers, may thus at any moment be trans.
fifimcd into formidable foes; their bristlinZg guns mnry rf.
quitesor early smiles and welcomes, with :y .1 U
the oacs tf comfort; while their commander, (rmos. of
thenm. strancrely enough, officers in the Bitish Navy ')
hAv!in acquired an intimate acquaintance with the in-
t.wa: i'jep offour ,iaftf s and oa.-i ".l, _A"' ""- '
psit0itrnm of the forts erected to defend our Cities, mn.,
forthe fetes we have treated them to. irnundata w-; w.'h
British bayonets, and men behind them. paid L; ib, '
British government to "take, burn, and destroy"' re kle
Share able to resist, every vestige of our prosperity.
Even France has exceeded us in the great race after
naval advancement, and particularly in the development
I of that stupenduous improvement which we have desig.
nated. France boasts 36 steam vessels of war--29 in
actual commission, and 7 in rapid progress of completion.
She, also has had her steamboats constructed for the
Post Office, so modelled, as in an emerge cy to be sus-
ceptible of instant alteration to the purposes of war; and
she talks boldly of her capacity to invade even Englaud,
and ere effective resistance can be offered, of throwing
an army of from 30 to 40,000 men ready for instant bat-
tie into the heart of her dominions.
All this proves how infinitely behind the age in which
Swe live, is our country, as regards this important arm of
National defence; and now that Europe exhibits anything
Sbut a state of equanimity, and a war there, must, (the
r pr.mress of science having so diminished our distance,
and the progress of commerce, of luzury and the arts, so

ot nut reel and regret the negligence that has so idly
exposed us to so much peril. ItfWil be a salutary les-
son however for the future, and we ardently hope may
thus operate fur good. The blessings of peace are worth.
i less, unless secured to us by a readiness for war. This
* maxim of Washington should have been ever before the
i eyes of Congress in preference to the petty debates on
t petty subjects that have so much occupied its attention;
and t is possible now that cause fore 'its remenmbrance is
being daily furnished in the ,changing character of our
foreign relations, that its great and leading importance,
will not be forgotten. '

O NE OF TIHE Chief charms .of Literature is its
nationalty-Us Iddta ltirest. It *as the blend-
ing of national feeling anpi eatiment with the produc-
tions of genius--the close alliance of literature with
patriotism that enabled the authors of antiquity to
reach the hearts of the people, and to exert such pow-
erful influence upon the age and country in which they
lived. The literattre,of clden Greece was but the
breathing forth of the national spirit and feeling. It
was purely lo 'al, an I bears the stamp and impress of the
age and people no !es. than of the genius of those gi eat
authors and poets whose fame will endure forever.-
What knowledge have we of the nations that have
preceded us but that which we have obtained through
the medium of their national literature-or what bet-
ter evidence do we desire of the mental in.becility and
barbarism ot any people, modern or ancient, than their
destitutiot in this re ard? Indeed all nationally that
survives a nation is its literature. With'our peculiar
intitution theri, what political or moral interest can
present stronger claims to Lhe people of the oiiuth than
that of hAer doacstic literate? Certainly none-for
it must be admitted by all, that none other is so deci-
dedly calculated to promote the intelligence, patriot-
isin, morality,and cunseqeunt security and happiness of
her people!
The MIRROR hias now been in existence about two
years, during whtch time, though no very strenuous
efforts have been made. the literary resources of the
immediate, south have been sufficiently developed to
warrant the belief that our own section of country is
as capable of an exalted literature as any other portion
of the republic. Why then should we remain in de-
pendence upon the Northl Why should thousands of
collars be annually drained from the South to pay for
a literature, which comes to us divested of all its lo-
cal interest, and not unfrequently coupled with insult
and upbraidingl There is no good reason why such
a state of things should longer continue to exist. Be-
hold the West!-already has a vigorous literature
,spung up almost to maturity, in that section of our
country, wnich within our recollection was .but an
idle wilderness; and even now the genius and talent
of her writers is beginning to equalizothe literary com-
merce between the north and the west, while it is call-
ed into existence and ably sustains several literary pe.
riodicals of transcendent merit.
Are not we of the South equally competent to think,
and write for ours-lvesl Have we not an equal de-
gree of talent and patriottsm'? Most assuredly we'
have! And yetiwe may not boast in allitour borders
oae flourishirngdo:n..-tic literary journal-while 'the
patronage of our peoplee is liberally bestowed to sup-
port foreign journals and foreign writers, We do not
desire to excite sectional prejudice against Ihe literary
periodicals of the north-there are many excellent
Magazines and journals which we would be ,glad to
sec -xtensively patronized, and which we never fail to
commend to the Southeinpublic. Nevertheless we
cannot but feel mortified at our present absolute litera-
ly dependence. We desire to see the literature of the
south placed upon an equality with that of other sec-,
tions of our couiiry. The north, the east, and the
west.,have their local literature-why shall not the
pqoutfl' If our sectional pride will not prompt us totlhe
derelopement of our own resources, there are strong
practical reasons which should urge us to foster and
promote this most efficient means of disseminating
healthy sentiment,, moral and political among the peo-
ple. If ever the peculiar institutions of a country de-,
manded such an influence-if ever the political posi-
ti'onlt ,a.Opeople rendered it important that they,
'should guard with jealous care the sources of opinion
.truly our position-which is daily becoming more and
more opposed by powerful sectional interests, as well
as the inflamed and misguided public opiurn of other
states, at home and abroad-demahds that, we should
n& surrender the empire of the:mind to the sceptre (of
those who aire .'aliens to our interests and, ,enemies to,
our rights! If it be true (and .all history .attests the
faci) that the literature of a country, exerts more or:
less mnfluenc' npon the public sentiment, would it not
be better that our owi writers should .give the tone and
impulse to that sentitnent among us. WoutlcAt not be
better that the yottng, whose minds are. easiest lured
and moulded by the charms of literature, should im-'
bibe the principles +' sentiments ofsouthern writers than
of those who, if their published sentiments are not in-
imical to our own on a certain important ttqJecr,-'are
at least,strangers to our interests and our feelings'.
Entertaining these -vieWs, the editor is determine.
e1 to devote all the energy of which h is ,capable to the
furtherance Lef this tru.y commendable object, and
he tru sts that in such a cause,, he will not be per-
mitted to appeal in vain to the intelligence,and patriot-
ism of the south for ec'ouragement and support, :
Oun LITER.aARY RESOURCE,-With a view of placing
the Mitaon in competition Willt its northern conempo-
raries here at h6orie, we have'rccently made great ex-
ertion tonlist in its'support much of the talent of the:
south; and from the cordial assurances which we have
rebeived from writers, of eminence, ot theii friend-
ship and aid we have no hesitancy in informing the
friends of ourdomestic literature that the MIRoO will
i: fltixre be ably sustained by southern, writers.

mencementt 6f ihe Mirror, it has beenwthe constant aim

on her many additions' and improvements, Some of
her old tiinbemrs.have been taken out and replaced. by
new--she has a greater measurement fcre vnd aft; a
greater length of beam, and her sheets have been ma.
terially enlarged. :.
Notwithstanding the increased size, the public may
rest assured that.the "Picaywne" will be enabled to
working shoalwaktrwith the same facility as.hexeto,

would be folly for the dull, heavy vessels at present1ailr
