Our country right or wrong,"
What manly heart can doubt,
SThat thus should swvell the patrbt song,
Thus ring the patriot shout ?
Be but the foe arrayed,
And War's wild trumpet blown-,
Cold were his heart who has nit made
His country's ca Lse his own.
Though faction rules the halls
Where nobler hearts have swayed,
One satied V..uct f,-rever cails
The patriot's heart and blade !
1He, at his country's name,
Feels every pulse beat high,
Wreathes round her glory all his fame,
And loves for her to die !
Where 'er her flag nroll'd
Woos the saluting breeze,
Flings o'er the plain its starry fold,
Or floats on stormy seas--
All dearest things are there,
All that makes life divine,
Home, faith, the brave, the- true, the fair
Cling to the flaming sign.
Oh, is this thought a dream ?
No by the gallant dead,
Who sleep by plain and hill, and stream,
Or deep on ocean's bed,
By every sacred name,
By every glorious song,
* By all we love and know of fame,
Our country--right or wrong."
A amusing correspondent of the Cour
er' Etats Unis tells the following:
jne of our most celebrated
painters had made, with the
vfw of exhibition at the Gal
Jerry, the portrait of a lady
whose fortune has enable he
top occupy a very brilliant pos
itf/n, and who had been, for

long time, regarded as one o
the most beautiful women o
Paris. Unfortunately, this re
putation is one of such lona
standing, that it is already 01

tion has already reached a

The dusty files of the Civil
Registry kept the secret of her
forty summers, which she con-
cealed as well as she could,
with a wonderful skill, aud by
her great endeavors to be as
attractive as in time past.
Paris is a place of great re-
sources; ointments for all
wounds are to be found there,
as well as admirers of all ages.
Our heroine maintained her
pretensions bravely; her vanity
was tolerated, and being desi-
rous of giving publicity to her
attractions by an exhibition at
the Louvre, she had her por-
trait painted. She prepared
her best looks for the purpose,
wearing her most becoming
dress, assuming a position most
favorable to her charms, sea-
ted before her toilette table,
leaning negligently on the arm
of her chair, arid smiling upon
htr own reflection in the iil0i
ror, which coursewas b
most complimentary to her
The painter sketched a
most striking likeness; in doing
so, he did just what he should
not have done. A little more
flattery, and a little less exact-
ness, would have been far
more acceptable. The per-
fectness of the likeness made
her less willing to recognize ijs
merits. The model declared;
she could not see -any likeniess
in it, and the painting was left
on the hands of the unfortu-
nate painter.
This was a double wrong tc

"You'll please not ,to forget
to ask the place for me, sir,"
said a pale blue eyed boy, as
he brushed the coat of the rich
man of leishre at his lodgings.
'Certairjly not,' aid Mr. ink-

'Did you ask ,t the place

boy on the following day' with
quivering lip, as he performed
the same office.
'No,' was the answer, I was
busy, but I will to-day.,
Heaven help my mother,
murmered tbe boy, and gazed
listlessly on the cent Mr. Ink-

The boy went home. He.
ran to the hungry children
with a loaf of bread he had
earned by brushing the,.gentle-
men s coats at the hotel.-
They shouted with joy, and
his mother held out her hand
for a portion, while a smile
litted across her face.
Mother, dear, said the boy,

MR. CA(BELL.-Fromi private letters we
learn, that this gentleman is winning
hearts, and i\ we mistake not, votes too,
wlier-ver he goes. The reception' he has
Inet with in the different places he has
visited, must be truly gratifying, and flat-
tering to himself. Of one thing we are
sure, he will find that '" Crackers" as we
are cillied in East Florida, we know how
to esteem a worthy gentleman, and an ho-
,nst, open, uprighit Wiig politician.
V( We are indebted to the Jackson-
ville News for the very facetious, gentle-
manly, courteous and friendly manner in
which it has introduced the Whig Banner
to its readers. See advertising colukuns.

1' At an election hbld in this, town
Last week for company officers, the follow-
ing gentlemen were unanimously chosen:
S. Glinski, Capiain.
L. G Sibley, 1st Lieutenant.
Luke Johns,-td Lieutenant.
We understand that it is the intention of
Captain Glinski to establish a regular pa-
trol. This energy on the part of the wor-
thy Captain, will mrit the praise of the
friends of law and order.

THE CROPS.-From every quarter we
learn that the weather has been very pro-
pitious for the crops, and that the general
prospect is very flattering. The corn will
turn out finely, and we venture to say that
our sea island cotton will yield in quantity,
and be superior to anything heretofore
produced in the t" land of flowers"-Deo

t,1'he Savannah Republican of, the
26th,in noticing the public dinner given
to C.ABELL, at Palatka, has this hand-
some paragraph:--
tl "May this to the Whigs of Florida be
but the prelude to that greater and more
Universal triumph, which, we trust, they

SICKNESS IN THE ARM.--A gentlemann
writing from Matamoras says:- a
Regret to say that the measles have
broken out in our camp, and Doct. Axsom i n
his report declares that it has assumed an
epidemic form, At present we have had no
deaths, 'but some very critical cases. The
dysentery is also veiy had with many."

(l?' Our gallant contemporary of the
Savannah Republican, is charging nobly
into some resolutions which Mr. Webster
recently introduced in the Senate of the
U. S., stating that "6Our Government
ought no,. to desist from its military oper-.
ations, and tender terms to the Mexicans."'
The Republican, after scoring it into the
Government for its negligence in not pro-
viding General Taylor with the means to
follow up his brilliant victories of the 8th
and 9th, and mentioning that the course
pursued by it is one calculated to prolong
the war, thus concludes:-
"The proposition for peace ought to
come from the Mexicans, if the moral and
political influences .expected to flow from
this war, areAintended to result beneficially
to the United States. The surest way for

a nation to obtain peace, is toehold herself
in readiness to fight, and to fighting earnest
at any time, and with any foe. This boy's
play is neither becoming onr national dig-
nity, nor our national power. It will pro-
long the war for years to the injury of ev-
i ery interest involved. If the Government
will only furnish General Taylor and Genl.
Gaines with the mea-ns, they will ensure
peace to both countries in less than a
twelve month."

GEri. TAYkiOR. The Louisville Courier,
in speaking of Gen. Taylor, says:
i1e wps;raised and educated in thiscoun-
try, and always has considered it and re-
gards it as his home. His father, Col.
Richard Taylor, was an officer in the Old
Continental army, and died at his residence
near this city abou tet years. since. le

SA NOVEL ExcuSE.-In the battle of the
Resaca de la Palma, a hand-to-hand skir-
mish, a soldier in our army, a quaint
Irishman, pierced a Mexican with his bay-
onet and immediately after fired the con-
tents of his musket. "What was that for,"
said the officer in command of the squad,
in a tone signifying his disapproval of the
act. "Oh" said the soldier, much puzzled
for an answer, "What was it for ?-why to

most excruciating head-ache which caused
her to scream in agony. A Physician was
sent for, and after examining the case, he
pronounced it a fever, and prescribed ac-
cordingly. But his prescription afforded
no relief, and the patient died. 'While
laying out the body, an eai wig was seen
issuing from one of her ears, and it is said
it passed from one ear to the other entirely
through her head. This is impossible.
Nevertheless the presence of an insect in
the ear may be higfily dangerous. By
dropping a teaspoonful of'gin or sweet oil
in the ear, the cause will be destroyed.
