proofs of its efficacy have been received from ev

have already tested its exalted virtues, and con
fessed its surpassing excellence and amazing
power. The remarkable success of this Balsam is
no doubt owing, in a great messure, to the pecu
liarly agreeable and powerful nature of its ingre
dients. It is a
FINE HERBAL MEDICINE!

Some Merchants iu town catch customers by the

For soon rates of Interest will drop down to six,
And according to that, we our profits must fix.

And they'll not give their notes till after July.

1 WANT A BEAU I'VE GOT A BEAU.
I want a beaul I want a beau!
'Tie sweet at least they tell me so
To waltz, or walk, or sail, or row,
With him you mean to marry;
And then but oh! it mast be sweet!'
To have one kneeling at one's feet,
And hear him there his vow repeat!
By Jove, but I will marry!
1'nm old enough to have a beau!
And oft I tell my mamma so!
And often she replies "Oh no!
You are too young to marry!''
Odd Zooki! 'tis alwaya thus with those
Within whose bosom coldly flows,
The streams of love, to belles and beaux,
Who have a mind to marry.
Maidens who have their heartSjfor sale
Some forty years whose charms are stale,
May and thy have a cause to rail
At those who wish to many;
But ma'as who by experience taught,
Know all the bliss with which is fraught
The wedded life I think should nought
Object when girls would marry.
I've got a beau! I've got a beau;
I know he loves me and he came
This very night to tell hta flame;
He called me every pretty name;
And asked me if I'd marry.
I blush 'd as every modest maid
On such occasions will and said,
"Dear, I feel somewhat afraid,
I am to young to mBrry."
He pressed his suit whafcould I do?
I answered "take me," (so would you,)
And, truth tossy, I think there's few
Who can, but that will marry.
The Rubicon is passed what then?
Why I must wed the best of men,
I trust I shan't regret the when
I first resolv'd to marry.
THE WAR Treason.
In his speech in reply to Mr. Benton,
who charged him with being the author of
the war, Mr. Calhoun made the following
Every measure towards the accomplishmant of
annexation had been consamated before the
present administration came into power. No
war followed, although the act of annexation had
been completed more than a year before the rup
ture between us and Mexico took place, nor
would war have followed at all hid we acted
with ordinary prudence. That Mexico was
chafed, chagrined, that she threatened much and
blustered much; talked about war and even the
existence of hostilities are all true. It was,
however, but talk. The strong should always
permit the weak and aggrieved to talk, to bluster
and Bcold, without taking offence; and, if we had
so acted, and exercised proper skill in the man
agement of our affairs, Mexico and ourselves
would, bv this time, have auietly and peaceably
settled all difficulties, and been good friends.
We have chosen to pursue the opposite course,
and are in war.
Every senator knows (hat T am opposed to the
war, but none knows but myself the depth of that
opposition. With my conceptions of its charac
ter and consequences, it was impossible for me
to vote for it. When accordingly, I was deserted
by every friend on this side of the house, inclu
ding my then honorable colleague, among the
rest, Mr. JYlcDume, 1 was not shaken in the
least degree in reference to my course. On the
passage of the act recognizing the war, I said to
many of my friends that a deed had been done
from which the country would not be able to
recover for a long time, if ever; and added, it has
dropped a curtain between the present and the
future, which to me is impenetrable; and lor the
first time since I have been in bublic life, I am
unable to see the future. I also added that it has
closed the first volume of our political history
under the constitution, and opened the second,
and that no mortal could tell what would be
written in it. These deep impressions were made
upon my mind, because I saw, from the circum.
stances under which the tear was made, a total
departure from the course of policy whkh had
governed the country from the commencement of
our government until that time; ana that, too.
under circumstances calculated to lead to most
disastrous consequences. Since then, less than
a year has elapsed, but in that short period enough
has already been developed to make what was
then sutd look like prophecy.
But the senator charges, entertaining as I did
these impressions, that I did not lake a aland,
and arrest the march of Gen. Taylor to the Rio
del Norte, I have already stated the reasons on
another occasion why I did not, and however un
satisfactory they may be to the senator, they are
satisfactory to myself, and I doubt not they will be
to the community at large, tie also intimated
that I ought to have communicated my views to
the President. I was guilty of no neglect in
that respect; I did not fail to state in the proper
quarter explicitly what I thought would result
from the order given to Gen. Taylor, but I found
very different views from mine entertained there.

The advent of the vernal month teems
not to be tardy, although it cornel to us
over fields ot untrodden snow, and is ush
ered in by the merry peals of sleigh-bells.
We perceived that a change had come over
the spirit of old winter, on taking a pleasant
drive a day or two since. The sound of
the bells, mingled in a thousand harmonious
cadences, went up on the rarified atmos
phere with a mellower and more musical
sound than when Johua tried to keep pace
with, or get atari of Jack Frost at he trav
elled on the winds over the creaking snow
track. The breath of the Frost King is
growing mild, like a last sigh. All the sharp
angles ol the rough winds are smoothed
away; and, although it blows seemingly
with at good a will as ever, it is a modest,
good-natured, full-mouthed blast, which
ttrikes ut broadside like, and not edge-wise,
at formerly, causing the ears to tingle, and
the cheeks to blush, whenever it gained ac
cess through ourmuules.
We hail the spring with joy, lor it comes
like a harbingerof returning health to nature,
so long clothed in the heavy garments ol
winter like the tidings of freedom to the
captive, end hope to the fugitive. We bid
the hoary crown of winter farewell without
regret, but not spitefully, for his reign has
been one of cladness, and gayety has flour
ished with a liberality which shall preserve
his memory until the bright flowers and
green Melds lead our thoughts to a clime
where winter never comes and joys are
new. Alb. Eve. Jour.

Of what use is an isolated type! It may
be a perfect letter and a beautiful one, but
who takes notice ot it T It may be a figure
nine, which has wandered away from the
head of a half dozen ciphers. Without this
little type the whole row means just noth
ing. How important then is a single type
especially in the place assigned for it by
the compositor. Do you see nothing in
this illustration, ye who exclude yourselves
from society, and live isolated lives?
There are scores within speaking distance
of you, to whom you might be of essential
service. Unite with them and you may
move the world. Apart and you are worse
than nothing even less than ciphers.
What would Washington have done alone?
Suppose Adams, Franklin and a host of oth
ers had kept aloof, where would our nation
now be? Associated effort completes the
work, which might have been under pro
gress for ages with here and there a laborer.
In union there is power and strength. No
longer dig alone ; but if there is knowledge
of virtue in you, let it be united with the at
tainments of others and you will accomplish
all that can be desired. Portland Bulletin.
THE IRISH FAMINE-O'CONXEL'S PLAN.
The following is the conclution of a speech
by the Irith Liberator, delivered recently in
My plan it, that England should immedi
ately borrow 40 millions that she might
ransack the world for lood. 11 will be an
increase of 40 millions to the national debt
to be sure it will but it will be 40 mil
lions to purchase the lives ol the Irish peo
ple. I have been sneered at by tome, and
laughed at by others. I have always an
swered, " What will you propose what'
remedy have you?" '0h, we will allow
merchants to bring corn into the country."
See the price you now pay for corn, com
pared with the prices at which it is pur
chased in the original market. There is no
chance ol salvation lor the country, unless
the landlords come forward manfully, and
boldly insist upon the English Government
providing food for the people.
Talk ol drainage! whv drainage is verv
good, as regards next year, or the year af
ter; and as to the cultivation of the waste
lands those lands would produce no crops
for two years at least. Now what sort ol
a remedy it thatt It remindt me of a phrase
" Liive horse, and you win get grass."
They say to the people of Ireland, "live for
two years upon the air, and at the end of
that time you will get potatoes. ' Oh! it
is melancholy to think of it is really ludi
crous. In Cork the county which I repre-
sent tney are aying oy nines coroner's
inquests are no longer held, and so nurr.er
ous are the deaths that a sufficiency of cof
fins can not be had. Most affecting instan
ces are related of the kindness and devotion
ol the peasantry, in those unhappy districts
One man went seven or eight miles to get
work he didn t taste a morsel lor forty
eight hours, so that he might be able to pur
chase a couple of stone ol meal for hit fam
ily he carried the provisions till he reach
ed his own door, when he dropped dead ol
hunzer! And when such things occur, and
are becoming familiar, am I to be talked to
about political economy, and told not to in
terfere with mercanti'e speculation?
Gmn. Taylor's Politics. A gentleman
who was with the army last summer, on tho
Rio Grande, had occasion frequently to call
on Gen. Taylor, and in moments of leisure,
the cause of the Mexican war, fcc, was a
topic of conversation. It is known to all
acquainted with Gen. Taylor, that he con
verses freely upon any subject introduced
there seems to be no concealment in hie
composition. During one of his visits, a
gentleman of Mississippi was introduced as
the Hon. Mr. M. of that State, ho beine a
member of the State Senate. After a few
minutes of general conversation, our friend
remarked, "I see by the late papers, your
friends are proposing you for the Presiden
cy." "Yes," said Gen. Taylor, "I am sorry
to see it; I have always thought, and still
think, a civilian, and none other, ought to
hold that office. I have no other ambition
than to bring this war to an honorablo
close, and then go to my farm, and there.
in the bosom of my family, live and die.
i am no politician. 1 have not had a
chance to vote in a great number of years'.
i would, however, have voted at the fast
Presidential election for Mr. Clav. if I
could have done so because I believe him
to be not only a wise Statesman and good
man but, I had some constitutional doubts
upon the annexation of Texas."
Our friend remarked. "I have understood.
General, that you have said vou were here
as the officer of your Government, and
asked no questions as to the right or wrong
of this war." The old General, with much
" Between my government and a foreign
nation, 1 never ask a question; MY GOV
ERNMENT is ALWAYS RIGHT."
This pure, patriotic and lofty seutiment,
put an end to all queries. As a soldier,
Gen. Taylor, would be pardoned for thus
hiding from view, all the errors or deficien
cies of his Government.
In history there are not recorded moro
just and more noble sentiments. Gen.
lay lor s remark relative to his Govern
ment being "always right," when the ques
tion is between his own and a foreign one,
h far more patriotic and enlightened than
Perry's celebrated sentiment," Our coun
try, right or wrong." Will not those who
have so industriously abused Gen. Taylor,
in the Senate and House of Representa
tives at Washington, regret their course,
when they read Gen. Taylor's own senti
ments regarding the Presidency? Had
they let him alone sustained him as Commander-in-Chief
of the Army, he would
at the conclusion of his duties, have retired
to his farm, but the persecution he has re
ceived from his political enemies, forces
the people to vindicate his fair fame, against
the aspersions of his enemies, by bestow
ing upon him the highest office in their
gift. Thus it is, that the political enemies
of the greatest military hero of our nation
have forced him into the Presidency. Ba

Human happiness has no perfect security

vigor or immortal hope, except in the sanc
