be best kept to himself. Is there any
t'ning like prudence in this? Is there any
thing like allection for that heart, which
(as he saylhe has been so "fortunate" to
win? None. Is Mr. "I" "a graduate?"
hardly: has he ever taken "music lessons?"
I see no music in his prose, and not much
in his head, or he would have put his ideas
into verse something lik. the above. He
may know something of French, but from
-the taste he has displayed in his "'delicate
request," one would hardly think that he
ever presumed to smell a flower, much less
to have turned his attention to the study of
Botany. Whether lie has been to a
'drawing school or not, I am not able to
judge, from the picture of courtship he has
drawn in that "delicate request." He asks
your "advice" whether "you think" from
her many "qualifications," that the unfor
tunate being -upon whom, his slim heart
has lavished its affections, can boy any
means, make him a "good wife? " rf she'
does, it will be more than he deserves. A
man of sense would have round that out,
(at least to his own satisfaction) before he
sought-the hand of the fair maiden. Much
less blot a column of the Advertiser by in
serting such a foolish "request."
There is sure to be fire, where therd is
much smoke, and as his pitiful "request"
seems lo be darkened "in extremo' with
the smoke of folly. I am led to think that
there is a spark of ambitious fire lurking
withiin his veins, th:.t often leads the im
prudent scribbler to stick his ideas in the
corner of a newspaper, because they are
too light and airy to be confined within the
narrow limits of his contracted mittd.
In the close of his idle effitsion, he says
that "she has an independent fortune at
her disposal." Here lies the whole secret
-he knows not whether ie can marry "the
fortune" and be -happy, when there is the
eseless appendagia'ttending it called wife.
Poot fellow! T hope-thefair one will keep
the fortune foi'di herdisposal, & niev
er let it be subject 'to that of one. -who is"
entirely void ofjudgment, and totally igno
rant of what will or will not tend to his
own happiness. ANTHONY.

Generals. When they 'meetrIor it is prob
able that they will shortlythave a personal
interview, i will not be for time first time.
11 we mistake not, it was upon the eve of
time ever to-be-remembere.d 4th of July,
014, that Gen Scott was advancing across
a beauti'ul plaiU about a mile and a half
above Uhzppewa, with a body of choice
American troops whon he intended to
drill belre suu down, when he met Gen.
Porter's light troops in conlnsion,und Gen.
Brown who was riding hard to put the re
serve oi tihe army it motion; the enemy
was drawn up in lull and regular order of
batme, supported by a heavy battery,with
in point ulatk shot of the bridge.
tie.. bcott passed the boridge, under a
dreadful fire, formed his line, drove back
'the British ann haited a womtent to take
breath; just then the smoke fronm the firing
cletared away and a drummer was shot
townm by the side ot Gen Scott; two of bs
men instiautly seized the drum, and began
to light for the possession of it, and at
last appealed to Gen. Scott to decide on
their respective claims to possession.
At tils critcal juncture, a party of Brit
msh slurp-iooters levelled their guns at
the interesting trio, and im a few mimoments
they would all nave lam hileless upon the
plain, had not a gallant British ollicer,tyho
%aw the whole oL these muvements, rode up
t, froint of the rLilemen and ineat up their
guns with his sword; that officer was Gen.
Sir John Harvey, and that was his first
meeting with Gen. Scott. In a few tie
imets aterwards, the firiig inereased, the
%11m1ke thickened, and as the British were
won seen flying in- confusion across the
plain to their works behind the Clippe
wa, of course Gen-. Scott saw no more at
that titne of Gen. Harvey.
However, they will doubtless meet again
i a day or two, and as they have added
the wisdom and experience of twenty-five
years to their undonhted bravery and ihon
or,th-ir ineeting n ill te an interesting one.
