The Old Grist Mill.
BY 11. H. STODDARD.
The grist-mill stands beside the stream,
With bending roof and leaning wall;
So old, that, when the winds ore wild,
"The miller trembles lest it fall.
ial moss and ivy, never sere,
Bedeck it o'er from year to year.
The dam is steep, and weeded green ;
The gates are raised, the waters pour,
And tread the old wheel's slippery steps
The lowest rounds for evermore.
Mcthinks they have a sound of ire,
Because they cannot climb it higher.
From morn till night, in autumn-time,
When yellow harvests load the plains,
Up drive the farmers to the mill,
And back anon, with loaded wains;
They brinp; a heap of golden grain,
And take it home in meal again.
The mill inside is dim and dark,
But, peeping in the open door,
You see the miller flitting round.
And dusty bags along the floor;
And by the shaft and down the spot,
The yellow meal comes pouring out.
And all day long the winnowed chaff
Floats round it on the sultry breeze,
And shineth like a settling swarm
Of golden-winged and belted bees;
Or sparks around a blacksmith's door,
When bellows blow and forges roar.
I love my pleasant, quaint old mill ;
It 'minds me of my early prime.
'Tis changed since then but not so much
As I am by decay and time.
Its wrecks are mossed from year to year,
But mine all dark and bare appear.
I Eland beside the stream of life;
The mighty current sweeps along;
Lifting the floodgates of my heart,
It turns the magic wheel of song,
And grinds the ripened harvest, brought
From out the golden field of thought.

It is stated that of five hundred and forty
young ladies who fainted last year, more than
one half fell into the arms of gentlemen.
Only two had the mislortune to fall on the

this matter can present, we can arrive at
no other conclusion than that, indepen
dent of all extraordinary oppropriations
for prosecuting new works, our public
improvements arc sinking the Common
zvcaeth every year dcejjcr and jqycr in
debt! Notwithstanding the mystery in
which the reports are purposely involved,
this fact is apparent, and admits of no
denial; but they can and they doubtless
do, withhold from the public the exact
amount of debt they annually throw upon
the State. In the brief space of five
years we sec the cost of maintaining our
publio works swelled from 8700,000 to
over 82,000,000; and if this species of
Democratic progression is to be continued
for five years more, it will require the
sale of the works, and exhaust all the
proceeds, to pay the debt incurred in
merely keeping them up.
This condition of affairs has been bro't
about by the most unbounded profligacy
and corruption. For years our public
improvements have been made a mere

by the habitual villainy of her agents,

of party blindly to sustain it. I he gen-
era! system of transacting business on
our public works would make a man in
private enterprise despised in any com
munity, and our courts would seize him as
a felon. He would be dreaded as if his
very touch was contamination, and until
his operations could be confined to the walls
of some hospitable prison, public justice
would not be satisfied. But he is an
agent of the State forsooth! he deals
bountifully, and shares his plunder liber-
ally with his accomplices, and public o-
pinion seems to have grown strangely in
different to this species of robbery. And
how long will the people of the State, by
whose hard-earned taxes this proflgacy is
supported, stand idly by and permit it to
run its high handod career? Is there no
remedy for this official villainy ? I an
swer that there is but one hope of sub
stantial reform, AND THAT IS THE
UNCONDITIONAL SALE OF THE
WORKS ! And until this is affected,
the indications arc that the same fatal
abuses which are now practiced, for years,
will be practiced still. I grant that we
cannot realize the cost of their construc
tion that we must lose heavily in the
sale; but wo can reduce our State debt
nearly one-half, and destroy tho great
cause of its increase, without reducing our :
revenue. H by, then, will we madly

Fellow citizens, I am not here to beg
your votes. I care nothing for whatever
personal interest I may have involved in
this contest. I have a house and a voca
tion which are dearer and more cogenial
to me than an' official position 3011 could
assign me. But being the youngest can
didate ever presented to the people for a
State office and having been placed in
that position by the voluntary action of
the Whig party, I shall not stop to inquire
whether victory or defeat is to reward
my efforts. While the old Whig flag
waves over me I shall follow its fortunes
thhroug the din and smoke of every battle
anp call upon the young Whigs to join
their fathers in sustaining our noble cause.
