The Snowdrop in the Poor .Han's Window
It was a darksome alley
Where light but seldom sbone,
Save when at noon n sun-ray touch'd
The little sill of stone
Beneath the poor man's window,
Whose weary life was bound.
To waste, nt one dull ceaseless task.
The passing seasons round.
Spring's dewey breath of perfume,
And Summer's wealth of flowers,
Or the changing hue of Anlumn's leaves,
Ne'er blest his lonely hours.
He knew, too well, when Winter
Came howling forth again
He knew it by his fireless grate,
The snow, ond plashing rain !
Pierced by the frost-wind's biting,
His cheerless task be plied j
Want chain'd him ever to the loom
By the little window side.
But when the days grew longer,
He stole one happy hour,
To tend, with a broken vase,
A pale and broken flower.
How tenderly be moved it
To catch the nasine rav.
And smiled to sec its folded leaves
y day !
His faded eves were lilted oft.
To watch the Snowdrop bloom
To him it seem'd a star of light
Within that darksome room !
And as he gently moved it
Near to the sun. touch'd pane
Oh ! who can tell what memories
Were busy in his brain ?
Perchance bis home in childhood
In a svlvan vallev lav.
And be heard the voice of the running streams,
juu ine green leaves rustling piay :
Terchance a long departed
But cherished dream of yore,
Row up through the mist of want and toil,
To bless his heart once more.
A voice of music whisper'd
Sweet words into his ear ;
And be lived again that moonlight hour,
Gone by for many a year!
Or but the love of nature
Wiiliin his bosom stirr'd
The same sweet call lliat'sanswer'd by
The hlos.nm and the bird !
The free, imfettcr'd worship,
l'aid by the yearning soul,
When it serins to feel us wings expand
To leach n brighter goal !
An aspiration, showing
Karlli binds us not her slave,
But we claim n brighter being,
A life beyond the grave !
From the Traveller.

BV EVA MILFOItD.
James Davis was a flourishing young
merchant in good business, witli fair pros
pects for tlio future ; anil to complete his
liapplncsx, ho was the husband of an ex
cellcnt, loving wife, and tho father of a fine
little boy four years old. It was evenin",
null the little r rank had been brought down
Xvith liis father nnd mother, before "oin" to
ted - Tho litlle fellow was running aS,u
iuwiii twin iiiiiiisiui; J1UU-.U11 in various
ways, when his eye was caught bv hi
molher's bend purse, lyim,' upon tho table,
and immediately clambering upon a chair,
ho tried to reach tho object of his wishes,
hut his mother perceiving his attempts.
quietly removed the purso to a safe place
in her work-box. The child's face grew
scarlet with race, and springing from the
chair, ho doubled up his little fist and struck
his mother blow alter blow, with nil the
tiny force of which ho was master.
' Bravo, Frank !' exclaimed his father ;
you know how to defend yourself and your
rights, don't you ?'
' Oh, James,' interposed the mother, 'how
can you encourage the child in such an
exhibition of temper ? You surely do not
wish to foster his passionate disposition.'
'Pho! pho! Ullen, vou would make a
complete milksop of the boy if you had your
way. It noes very well to talk about hem
ousncss of temper and all that, but let me
tell you, that a man who does not stand up
for his own rights in the world, won't have
them ; every body will tramplo on him just
because they may- No, I had much rath-

took Frank in her arms and carried him to
bod. The littlo fellow nt first resisted, hut
his mother snoko to hurt firmly and mildly,
telling him that ho must obey, nnd ho at
once did so. As she undressed him nnd
laid him in his orib, Mrs. Davis talked sc.
riously to her littlo boy of the wickedness
of his allowing his passion to govern him.
She told him that she had been much criev.
ed nt his conduct that evening, and that no
doubt his Heavenly Father was displeas
' Well, but mamma,' interposed the boy,'

Tho tears rushed to tho eyes of tho young
mother. ' I havo a hard task before me,
murmured she, for lie who should help mo

' Why do you cry, dear mamma ?' in
quired tho sensitivo and affectionate child.
' Is it bocauso I was naughty 1 will not
do so any more, mamma. I certainly will
not only do not cry, for it makes mo want
to cry too.

good night hastily entered her own room,

sions Mr. Davis happening to look at his
son, exclaimed :

' Tom Elliott gnvo mo a hit, sir, becauso
I tODk away a bird ho was tormenting.'
' Well, and what did you do when ho
gavo you tho hit?'
The hoy looked from ono to the other of
Ins parents, and hesitated to reply. Hut
catching his father's good-natured expres
sion, he answered boldly :
1 Why, father, I pounded him till he was
black in tho face.'
' I warrant you did. I should think tho
boys would find out that it is not very safu
to meddle with you,' said tho father ap
provingly; while" Mrs. Davis looked at her
son with a sorrowful and reproachful ex
pression. The boy saw it, nnd rising, threw
his arms about her neck whispering
' Dear mother pray forgive me. I was
wrong, but how could I stund tamely and
allow myself to bo beaten for doing what
was right V
' Yes my son,' answered Mrs. Davis aloud
' I acknowledge that it was right for you to
uclcml the poor bird, but I think tho good
act was overbalanced by the wrong one.'
' Nonsense, Ellen,' interposed her hus
band, 'as Frank loft the room. ' How is
Frank ever coins to cct along in the world
if ho allows every body who choosrs to
tako the trouble, to beat him and trample
' Ho will havo the satisfaction of know
ing that ho docs his duty, and is obeying
the precepts ol his divine Master,' answer,
ed the mother.
' Oh, that is all very good, but then this
sentimental religion won't help a man to
get his living in the world. If Frank was
to be a Missionary or n jletbodist minister,
it would be very well to give him these
ideas, but as I bono to make Mm into n
shrewd, clever man of the world, they are
quite misplaced. And besides that, it is
useless to try to alter him. You might as
well try to teach a fish lo walk, as to give
that boy your own sweet, enduring tern-
Ellen smiled faintly at the compliments,
but the stnilo was drowned by tho fast
i i me swittly, and silently sped on, nnd
tho boy had become almost a man. Twen
ty summers had rolled over his head, and
each one had added now force to the strength
and quickness of his passionate temper.
Ho was very hand.somo, but thero was
something too indicative of the fierce tern-
per within in the bright and flashing eye,
in the large veins upon tho forehead, nnd
in tho curving nostril. So thought his
mother, but his father said
' Frank is a fine dashing fellow, and if
thero is a spice of the devil in him, I like
mm all tho hotter tor it. It shows that his
spirit novcr was broken by tyranny, as
that of many tthor high strung boys has
Ellen did not agree with this, but she
did not choose to dispute with her husband,
and so she contented herself with praying
and hoping for the best. Frank was u
highly intellectual and talented young man,
and was already in Ins senior year at col
lego. With his open, pleasing manners, Frank
mailo mnny acquaintance among his fellow
collegians. One of these vwis Frederic
Ainslic, a young Southerner, to whom
Frank soon became very much attached.
They had boon intimate for more than a
year, and had never had the slightest cold
ness, or misunderstanding, when all at
once, Ainslie became reserved and distant
to his friend, and when Frank implored him
to explain tho cause of this, ho replied, in
polite astonishment, ho 'was not aware that
he had treated Mr. Davis in any ungentle
manly manner that certainly nothing was
farther from his intention.'
After so chilling an answer as this.
Frank's pride forbado hint to renew his en
treaties, nnd for some time they remained
estranged ; but finally, affeclion conquered
pride in Frank's heart, and ho took an op -
portuuity to renew his earnest inquiries of
his Iricnd, ns to the cause ot Ins change.
For some tlmo young Ainslie refused to
answer ; but nt least ho said
' When I tell you that .Mr. Bamford has

Scarcely were these last words spoken,
when Frank raised his heavy cano and,

full force upon Uamford's head. The
heavy handlo struck upon Ids temple, and
he foil to the ground a corpse.

Frederick perceiving that argument was
useless, slowly followed his friend, ns he
went to tell tho whole story to the l'resi.
dent, nnd deliver himself up to justice.
The kind old man was deeply affected ; for
Frank Davis, by his talent, offahle manner
and respectful behavior, had won much re-
gard and esteem from the whole faculty ;
but the President plainly saw that but one
course was left lo him, and with a sorrow,
ful heart ho saw tho young man carried to
Tho wretchedness which this catastrophe
brought to the home of the murderer may
bo imagined but not described. Every
means which money and influence could
command, were put in force, to impress
judge and jury in favor of the prisoner, nnd
tho best counsel were retained in his favor.
I) tit on the other hand, plain and over-
whelming stood the facts, and the young
man's own confession.
The time intervening between the arrest
and the trial was spent by tho mother in
tears and agony of prayer ; by the father,
in glojmy and bitter reflection. Could he
quite acquit himself of blame ? Had ho
not encouraged and applaud;d the very
passions which had led to mis ? Uut,'
reasoned he, ' I am not answerable for his
perversion of tho good nnd useful spirit
which was what I aimed at in him. God
gave him hands, but becauso he misuses
them, is God to blamo V
Thus reasoned the man of tho world,
willing to adopt any hypothesis rather than
tako tho blame on his own shoulders. lie
regarded the guilt of the matter very little
it was tho disgrace of seeing his son
brought to the bar, as a common felon, lo
be tried for his life it was the ignominy
of having a convict for a son, that nflcctcd
him ; and he sternly resolved that were he
proved guilty, he could at once disown
The day of trial came nt length, nnd the
court was crowded with spectators. The
witnesses were few, but there was no need
of more, for the prisoner unhesitatingly do
clared himself guilty.
The jury, accordingly, '.vitllbut leaving
their box, brought in tho prisoner at the
bar guilty of manslaughter, or murder in
the second degree ; but on account of the
circumstances and tho youth of tho prison
or, he was recommended to mercy. There
was a short pause, and then l-rank Davis
was sentenced to the State Prison for life,
unless pardoned by tho Governor. This,
then, became the last hope ; and ere long
a petition signed bv many influential per.
sons, was prcsenteil to tho humane Cover
nor, and was by him almost immediately
The father and mother had just heard
the joyful news, and Ellen, for a long time,

Frank might not do so well in business us

consent, come again under tho roof which

Elizatiethtown, Sunday Evening.
General Scott took us all by surprise this
morning, at 8 o'clock. The vessel in which he
came, anchored, it seems, la-t evening, after a
pood run of 19 days from Vera Crtti, off tho " "'"'" "'-'rj'" -""cerne. , ime mam point) to our columns as interesting and important in

great efforts were made to Induce him to do so ;
but he strenuously deemed a tier press ne

overtures; and desirous first to set his feet upon
ine sou ot .New Jersey, he passed the ni'dit on
board and this morning was rowed up to the
roini uy jiajor r razier, ol the Revenue Service
an old soldier, who volunteered for the ncra
sion in a tine barge, manned by eight oars
men. The General reached the point unheralded,
and then taking tho lirst vehicle he could obtain
an open one-hnrso wagon, driven bv an lion-
' , , . . 1 " ",'
est. good tempered lri-bman, in his shirt sleeves
he reached home. What a triumphal car for
this second Cortez!
As soon as tho news nf bl rrlvnl .n.n-,l
' movements were made for at least hoisting tho!
Hags nnd ringing the bells; but Gen. Scott ab-1

legible on every face, was with difficulty re
pressed but it was repressed by llin eager and
admiring throng that pressed around him. A
single hat swung in the air, a single hurra,
wuuiu nave nrcu inc wnoiu village, anu greet
ings, honest, hearty, loud and lung, would have
greeted the honored soldier in his home.
Better as it Was more iu consonance with
his character and wishes, ipore in keeping with
the habits and feelings of the orderly and religi
ons people among whom he lives and whoso com
tidence and affection be shares.
But I cannot forego the mention of the scene
presented iu church, when the beautiful thanks

tlicir friend, their neighbor, tho eminent soldier
and defender of his country, had been conducted
in safety to the haven whero he would be,
The Sunday was kept holy.
But tomorrow tomorrow the heart of the
people will find utterance. They will not lis

the most accomplished commander of the ago
the soldier who combines in so eminent a de"ree
humanity to the conquered, and care for the
lives of his own soldiers, with the utmost vigor
in action and celerity in operations who never
risked the life of one of his soldiers on any mere
ly personal calculations, nnd who never forbore
the hazard of his own life when prompted by
duty the people, his neighbors, countrymen
and friends, will not listen tn the notion that
such a man, returning from tho most brilliant
military campaign known to any nnnals and
hawked at by the mousing owls of parly, shall
look upon himself ns under tho cloud of Execu
tive displeasure, and therelnre withdraw himself
from I ho just plaudits, and affectionate solici
tude of his countrymen.
The people are the sovereigns, and they will
absolve Gen. Scott from the 'displeasure" of Mr
Preilient Polk, who is nobody, except as the
servant of the people. The master will reward
their servant, and teach him that a little brief
authority accidentally confided to him, furnish
es no warrant for such wrong nnd outrage its

Uut theru will be no other demouslration than
that of a popular gathering of friends and neigh.
bor at the Court House, at about 3 P. AI,,
when the corporate authorities of the Borough
will welcome Gen, Scott to his home and uf.
ter presenting him generally to the assembly,
the ceremony will end. c. K.
SATURDAY EVENING, MAY 27, 1818.
Wo arc sorry to feel obliged to say that the Sen
tinel is fastdeparting from that standard of hon
orable and fair controversy which it marked
out for itself at the commencement of its new
life. We give it timely notice that wo shall
not follow it.
Our readers will recollect that we copied
from the Sentinel, a few days ago, a paragraph
purporting and nnnlfestly iirtended.to show that
Anti-Slavery Whigs could not consistently sup
port Mr. Clay for the presidency, because, as
the Sentinel argued, Mr. Clay is opposed to
the exclusion of Slavery " from the Territories
of this Union ," for proof of which it referred
to and quoted a restitution offered by Mr. Clay
in the U. S. Senate, some ten years ago, aflinn
ing the inexpediency nnd injustice of abolishing
Slavery in the District of Columbia ! We took
occasion to expose, as we think fairly and pro
perly, the shallow sophistry which was expend
ed in the effort to place such premises nnd con
clusions in a logical relation.
We also took the same occasion to lay down
what we hold to be the Wmo doctrine respect
ing interference with SUvery in this Union ;
and tins we Unelly did us follows :
The Whigs, wi.de tlpy ciaim (he rir,,t
"to oppose its extension, have' repeatedly nnd
" always disclaimed any rijiht or intention to
" interfere in any way with Slavery, as it exists
"tn the States. I hev do not intend that tho
" Constitution gives them any right to such in -
" terferencc. Slavery is exclusively a State
" affair, or " institution" as it is noinnnunlv call-
I ,1 -.1 1 ......... .1 ' e ,
--t'u, anu, as -.iin, uie i uesiion oi aiioiisning or

I .. .m.j,,,,,,! s,o,. l.r i.ibor.vUn i. i. l.., .,;
" in regard to the extension of Slavery intoTer-
" ritory where it docs nut now exist ice.
This view, awkwardly enough expressed wo
admit.butyct sufficiently explicit and iiitelligi. aid ixteh.sal ljirr.ovn.MEM, are to be submit
blc, is precisely that taken recently by Mr. gTd- ,ci1 ' t''e afhitrament of the ballot-box that

District of Columbia is unconstitutional. This

doubtedly, to hold the discussion iiwcgard to
Free Territory as " ridiculous" and "disgust

is so agitated nnd divided nn this question, (nf
Free Territory) that its existence and success

Jnuriul stales that the quarry wasopeneu aonui
three years since, but the real value of it was
not discovered until quite recently, when a vein
over one half a mile in length was discovered
hingin some 30 strata of blocks, averaging
iibaut d feel in length, from 15 inches lo 4 feel
in width and thickness. This marble I. very
hard, ot tine grain, midtakcsa very high polish.
