Imt whence came both? Their history does not

the race of AtSlhi nud his linns, and that thev
caino from the V'.ast from Asia. The Magyars
crime last, and found the Sickly already settled inj
their present home in Transylvania. 'J his part of

tries prompts many persons to tho cultivation of
this appendage, has nothing to do w ith the Cushion
among the Sxcklcrs : it is simply a habit to which
both thev and the Magyars li-.no nlwnvs been ac-
rustomed. That it is not a vanity on tho part of
the Siieklers is evident from their mode of dressing.
In this tlify observe the greatest simplicity; a dan
dy is a raritv among them. They uro even ultra
careless in dress, nnd on this account are often
subjected to raillery lv the morO elegant Magyars

tho encroneliinonts or desHisiiiMH tholnndof the
Szeklers, I niako lsdd to aflirin that, up to a Into
period, when tho Ausliian government filched from
It its eonstiiition, there existed ,, that little state a
greater amount of political liberty and equality
than In any country on the globe. In tho latter
times tho house of llapslairgh, by evory vile means,
made encroachments upon their freo constitution,
and to stay tho progress of these was the cause of
tlio ate Jingynr-Mcklnr war. Alas: Its lmorty is
now e brushed; its rights nre trodden beneath "the
iron heel of tho Ausliian trooper!
Tho Szeklers have never been a warlike neonlo:
I mean, a people delimits of war, or ambitious of
its red glories. I ney nave alwaya lieen tne advo

' arts. Tuuir well-tilled fields nud well-built houses

their country tho signs of intelligent industry and
respectable prosperity, that greet tho traveler at
every turn, prove the correctness of this assertion.

A SUMMER PICTURE
'Twns the very merry time,
Tlmt garlands hills mid dells,
And the South wind runir, 11 very i hi'no
I'pon the fntglove bells;
The cuckoo on the lady li'ticli
To bid 11 last good live
The lark sprung over the village church,
And whistled to the sky;
And wo had come from the harvest sheaves,
A blitho mid tuivney train,
And trucked our path with poppy leaves,
Along the green old lane.
'Twns n pleasnnt wny oh a summer day,
And wo w ere n happy set,
As ivo idly bent w here the streamlet went
To get our fingers wet;
With the dog-rose here nud the on his there
And the woodbine tw ining through;
With the broad trees meeting evo
And the grass still damp w ith dew;
Ah! lie all forgot in that blissful spot,
The name of care nud pain,
As w e we lay on the bank by the shepherd's cot,
To rest in the green old lane.
O! days gone by! I enn but sigh
As I think of that rich hour,
When my heart in glee but seemed to bo
Another wood-side flower)
For though tho trees he still as fair,
And the w ild bloom still ns gay
Though the South wind sends as sweet nn air,
And heaven as blight n day;
Yet the merry set nre far nnd w id",
And we never shall meet again;
AVc never shall ramble side by side,
Along tho green old lane. .7i Omit.

SLAVE TRADE IN UTAH.
PAROWAN, Utah, June 21, 1853.
I cohld impart much valuable, inlormation con
cerning matters and things here, if 1 thought you
could muster sufficient faith in a member of so de
spised a sect us tho Mormon i'ariahs, but nt any
rate 1 will speak of ono thing which is uow milking
something of a stir among us.
It is in relation to tho bunds of traveling iSpnnisli
traders, who nro in tho habit of visiting this por
tion of tlio country uiory year tor tlio purpose ut
stealing Indian children, and oven grown Indians
and sipiivs, which they carry away nnd Roll into

inces ol Unit country lliis tne y nave unite lorm
timu immemorial, but as such a course, in the opin
ion of Gov. Young and tho Mormons generally,
far from right, he has been trying to put a stop
it by tlie laws ot tlie land.
Wo think that thero aro already too many slaves
in tho land; those who aro in that condition, by the
sanction of the constitution, wo do not intend or
wish to meildlo with; but we do not wish to see nny
mora of our human moo reduced ti tho degrading
condition of Moxicau servitude.
