quittconturies of discipline and education,

Of the conduct of the blacks, under the
state'pf things, the following extracts from
the Jgmaiai Gazette, will furnish our read
I ers with correct ideas:
".The apprentices," snys the Kingston
.Chroicle, " are treated by the special
magtraites and their subordinates, as
- spolichild ron. They are petted, humored
encQgruged in idleness and waste of time
and taught to expect indulgence which
tholeirimasters cannot nford to give theim
gratis--and when denied these indulgencies
they.jre encourage(i imn the bmelief that they
are ill treated and imposed upon. Tieir
i chilk)en are idle and profligate, aequiring
Sno ove good habit vihamever, disdaining all
r ng rItural labor; and again encouraged in
.suce elings, we snppose, by command or
on adeount of instriction."
I This no dotit. presents a true hmt raint
I pictdfe of the inconveniences and abuses to
) wh the miserable failure of this experi
s menhas opened the door; anti may be re
gnarde as the advance gu ard of a'[host of

" On this subject the following remark
are made by or.; of the leading journalsor
the island-"That idleness is the root of a]
evil," is made manifest in every court by th<
L fearill increase of crime. In (lays whe
,r masters had mhe power of stimulating theii

ADVI:NTUR.s AND ESCAPE, OF CoLONEL
nIIART04 Fo MATAMORAS.-We have
obtained from the lonourable Wn. If.
Wharton, late Minister Plenipotentiary from
Texas in the United States, soine particu
lars of his distressing captivity and mirae
ulous escape firom the dungeoas of his Mex
iean oppressors.
On the 17th of April last, after a fight of
more than seven hours, the Independence
in which lie was passenger surrendered to
two Mexican 18 gun brigt. The combat
IMd capture took place almost in sight or
the Colonel's residence from which he had
been absent for months on a mission to the
United States. Ile was carried to Mata
muras and confined for four months in a
low damp and dark prison, where he was
almost sullbeated with heat, continually
torniited with liens, exceedingly incom
moded by tihe stench of the llospital, which
was next door to him, and deprived of his
rest every night by the screams of the sen
tiiel uttered every fifleen minutes within a
few feet of his head. For four months such
was his situation, dependant for sustenance
entirely upon his own resources, shut out
froan the light of heaven, except what the
narrow gates of the dungeon admitted, and
demlied even the privilege of medical aid,
when languishing undei an illness, brought
on by the rigorous privations of his ca ptivi
ty. flis escapei however was at last effected,
the details of which cannot now he made
public, for fear of compromitting the safety
of the miagnaninmous individuals, residents
of Matamtioras, to whose aid he was indebt
ed for delivery.
On escaping from prison lie wts corn
plled by the treachery of his guide to re
main hid in a low prickly pear thicket for
eleven days, within hearing of the drums
and sentmiels of M atamoras. and very often
npproached within a few yards by the sol
diers and itidiais in constant search for
him, tempted by the magnificent price of
$5000 set upon his head, dead or alive.
In this thicket of thorns lie could not stand
erect, being taller than most of the bushes
for fear of being discovered, nor for the
same reason could lie build a shelteragainst
the burning rays of an August sun, almost
within the topics. During three days and
nights lie tasted neither food or water.
liis sufferings under these privations, were
inexpressable, and such as none can realize
unless taught by experience. After suffer
ing 11 days in this situation, a guide furn
ished him with a horse, and he started on
his journey home. Doubting the fidelity

Whei prone to the dust his oppressor should be

He was a firm believer in the truth of a
sentiment uttered ly him in his first speech
for his country, delivered in this city in De
cember, 1835-it was this: "That the ball
of revolution now started in Texas, would
never cense to roll, till the cannon dis
charged from the heights of Bunker's Hiill
should he answered by klmdred peals, re
echoing from Cape lorn. and proclaiming
the glad tidings (if the emancipation of true
Americans from the shackles of civil and
religious oppression.' It was an ardent
conviction of these truths that animated hin

MARKET FOR MAiDEs.-TIT FOR TAT.
-The young bachelors of Texas, to the
itutber of 8000, and many of whomig behi.,
on their brow the glorious laurels of San
Jacinto, and therefore tare "doubly arned"
for female conquests, have addressed an a o
swer to the 3000 yankee lasses of Iios.wn
who petitioned Congress against a UJniong
with Texas. Like much of what the Ihir
sex say about the matter of union, -o,' tIh
Texas youth suppose means, in this in
stance, -ycs." They pray ardently. tit least
for a domestic union, and their'prayer, wo
presume, wvill he respectfully listened to;
tihe more so probably because, as the Jiou i
ton Tcleganph suggests, many of the afore
said spinsters are a little "how come e so" -
il tihe old maidish line, and 'toier ;ide of
the Rubicon. The memorial runs thus:
"To the most beautiful-the most lovelv
the most accomplished, the fairest of "tho
fair, alias. the 3000 young ladies of Iloston,
,who signed a petitioi to the Congress of tIho
United States, against the annexation of
Texas to the Union of the North.
"We are here, dear objects of our afl'ec
tion, without wives: we have not one wo
man to one hundred mien; and it is this re
flection which more sensibly embitters tho
course you have adopted towards us. Weo
are aware that the refinements of the aee
will not allow us to adopt the precedent s1t
by.the youths of Rome, in seizing upon the
fair daughters of their Sabiniua ncie-hbor.;
such is the anxiety of government olliters
to promote an emigration of the fair liti-ja
other countries, with a probability of seem -
ing to themselves happiness in doinest i- I i;,
(being nearly all bachelors,) ther, hmiet u
granted to each lady two thirds of a' legegte
of land, (as a dower to her husband) wio
shall marry within the next twelve-montathe.
These considerations should prevent you
from forming a hasty opinion ngainst its.
."11n conclusion, if you will eiirate to our
fair land, we will hind ourselves, individi
ally and collectively, to furnish you all with
good husbands vithin between eight and
ten months after your arrival upon our
coast; and thus furnish you with a better
employment than meddling with political
questions, which should interest you much
less than your own domestic felicity."
WINTER EvENaNos are seasons for lo
mestic comfort, mental application anti so
ciality. They are delightful periods of
time when the rude bla - -ire heard wih
out, and the storm heats the snug -asement,
and tihe bright fireside reveals its substan
ial joys. They are not fictitious ones.
The. np p taqca I a
ous action together. These evenings should
be the means of great and permanent good
to the young. They should not be passed
im sluggish and criminal inaction. They
should not he frittered away in litless idle
ness, accumulating nothing, but squander
ing inestimable treasure.
We design simply to urge upon yotmng
men the improvement of those preciouis pe
riods in their existence. They are pre
nant with important results, moulding tihe
character and impressing the mind with
what will sink them in mature life or elevate
them to positions of infl'etice and respecta
bity in society. Much, very much, may
be accomplished by mental application, af
terithe labors of the field or work-shop have
closed. The body may weary and the
limbs tire, but the mind is still vigorous and
feels nothing of lassitude ani exhaustion.
Apply it then every evening to a settled
pursut, to some practical study. Let not
idle pretences or frivolous amusements de
duct front what will insure vou an ionora
ble position in society. Youniag mnen con
mtit a crininal act ofinjustice to themselves,
who are content with tie performance of a
daily task at the bench or inl the field.
'T'hey should remember that the mind rather
than tle boy, demands oftthem intelligent
care as well as assiduous cultivation.
