and I gladly avail myself ofthe opportiiii
ty which is afforded me, of announcing
my determination. So deeply do I- feel
the debt of gratitude which I owe to my
constituents, that if I know tnyself, there
is no sacrifice which I would not make to
serve them. But I am-well satisfied that
there is no service which I could render
them, which wouldtbe at all commensurate
with the sacrifice of interest, of feeling and
of health, which a longer. continuance in
Congress would involve.
"1 assure you, sir, that whatever pleas
ures public life may have afforded to others,
that I leave it with no other regrets, than
as the termination of a relation which has
so long subsisted with thq most generous
and independent of constituents, and the
loss of the good feelings of an enlightened
and patriotic portion. of these constituents,
occasioned by an honest and indexible ad
herence to what [,believed to be right. I
trust, however, that the time is not distant,
if it has not already arrived, when the
larger portion even of these will be satis
fed that I was right, on the only question
upon which any objection was made to me.
Very truly, your friend and ob't serv't.
WADDY THOMPSON, Jr,"
I was much pleased with the astronomi
cal lecture delivered on Thursday night,
the eleventh ult. It was highly credita
ble to the Author, and indeed, it would
have done credit to one far more experi
enced than himself. Both the manner
and the matter were good, and Dr. M.
gave in that lecture, strong evidence that
he is destined in time, if be perseveres, to
make no mean proficiency in the sublime
science which he has undertaken to teach.
So much, justice and impartiality require
me to say. And it is the duty of the vir
tuous and intelligent to cheer and encour
age whomsoever they find toiling, in any
path, to diffuse knowledge and to promote
virtue. This we should do, not only with
the pen, but with the purse also.
I regret that I cannot close here: but the
principles which I-have just avowed com
pel me to say one word more. I desire,
respectfully to suggest. to the gentlemen
who have the conduct of those things, the
propriety of omitting hereafter the exhibi
tion of those "Scriptural Diagrams." It
would be difficult to say what feeling. save
that of adoration, those pictorial represen
tations are intended to excite, And the
2d article of the decalogue commands us
to "worship the likeness of nothing in hea
ven." It was well said by that eminent
christian philosopher, the Bishop of Sa
rum-that "the bias of human nature lies
to sense, and to form gross imaginations of
incorporeal objects; and, therefore, instead
of gratifying these, we ought to wean our
minds from them, and rise, aq far as hu
manit wll suffer, above them."
But it being my intention, merely to
make a suggestion and not an argument,
I will .content myself with what I have
said;.trusting that my remarks will be
taken in the spirit of kindness and charity,
in which they are made.

Mr. E ditor,
1 beg leave to pablish, through the me
dium of your paper, some account of deer
hunting, by the Penn Creek Company, on
the waters of $aluda, Edgefield District,
during the months of Juno, July, August,
September and part .of October, 1838.
The Company consisted of five men who
had dogs amounting to seventeen. Good
dogs indeed they wvere-for Old Jolly, one
of the pack, would never pass the trail of
the buck, (although the latter had made it
36 hours previously,) without yelling most
loudly. We amused ourselves one day in
each week during the months above men
tioned, nor did we consider the tinie un
profitably spent, having killed in that fine
season 23 deer, which were fat, tender and
delicious to the taste. How delightful was
it to us to hear Jolly and his comrades in
full yell, wvhen the flying doe, but a fur
long in advance, trode the pathless hills
and valleys, dreading even the very thick
ets themselves! How does the poor crea
ture tremble at the arrival of'Spring! This
season to her has become terrible! She
starts at the rustle of a leaf!- She flies
if but a green lizard stir the black-berry
bush which bears her favorite food ! She
dares not stay to nip a bud, for JTolly and
his pack are in fudllpursuit, making sweet
er music than did Orpheus when he drew
the lofty oak from the mountain, by'the
soft strains of his lyre-when subdued by
his melody, rivers the most trapid ceased
to flow, and the very mountains moved
forward to listen to his song!
What a thrill shoots through the breast
of one, who has been anxiously waiting at
the pass thte arrival of the buck, when he
beholds him leaping carelessly, but majes
tically along ! His velvet horns arerthrown
back, his snow-white tail is erect, 'and 'he
looks as if he disdained to touch a branch
or a leaf with his taper legs! He makes
his way through the vast pine barrens,
speeding as with the wings of Icarus.
But lie fl ies in vain ! Jolly and his merry
crew are close in his rearhs Alas! the no
ble stng is now exhausted-lie bowvs down
his head-he throws out his tongue-lhe
'tottrs ns he runs nlnng the> winding riru
let, seeking shelter in'the full, overflowing
stream! Driven from this, he hides him
in the dense thickets, where the owl pours
forth his startling note! Or where the
whip-poor-will gives warning of the ap
proach of evening, by his saddening strain.
,But enough of this.
In conclusion, I must say that hunting
is a manly pastime. The hunter is gener
ally a noble, generous being. Doubtless,
he will make a good husband. Wit idue
deference, Mr. Editor, [think that the
hunter, who is yet a bachelor, is worthy
or the "little girl whom you saw stooping
over a snow-bank," and with whom you
were willing to do battle at snow-ball,
throwing your -editorial dignity" to the
winds. Oh mother! whoever thou art, who
readest this sketch, never refuse thy daugh
ter to a hunter! Trust her to him freely!
Bind her to him by the silken bonds of
Hymen. He will cherish her in sickness
and in health. Unto her will he cleave, for
saking all others. VENATOR.

We had indulged the hope that "In
quisitor" would take advantage of the few
hints we gave him, on the impropriety of
scribbling. As well might we expect a
weather-cock to assume a fixed position,
or endeavor to stop the current of the
winda. It is not surprising to us, in the
least, that the stretches of his flighty and
baloon-like, imagination should seek for a
simile in the exploits of his beau-ideal of
heroism Don Quixotte. Who that has
read of the imaginative genius of' Ichabod
Crane, of Sieepy Hollow, the grand pro
totype and forerunner of the "Inquisitor"
of modern date, but must be s'truck with
the exact coincidence of their wonderful
genuises? Par nobile fratrum.
Mr. -'' feels that he is subject to our
'-doggerel splurges." Well he may. We
make our -ills to suit the palates of those
that have to swallow them; hence it is,
that we have been induced to believe that
any thing short of "doggerel splurges,"
(as an astringent,) is altogether incompe
tent to produce the desired effect. Mr ' I'
presumes to question whether we have ev
er had the "advantages of an academical
education." Now, "the proof of the pud
ding is chewing the bag," and while In
quisitor is chewing the bag, we will again
ask "is he a hraduate ?" if he is, he has
greatly cheated the Faculty; for no "gra
duate" would ever write desideratums ror
desiderata. His dignity too, stoops to the
"practical bearings" or personal remarks,
as " beardless youth,"&c. Weonlywish
a sling, and a few smooth stones, to pene
trate the armour of this gigantic Ichabod,
We are truly sorry that we cannot return
the compliment paid us in the outset of his
eloquent "splurge," by using the term
"egotist;" for Mr. -I" has clearly shown
in his "adniratiorn for qualifcations," that
he has thought too little of him'self ever to
We congratulate Mr. "I" in being so
successful in obtainitng from the Editor
that advice which hie so ardently craved,
and so much needed ; for now it seems that
he has enough and some to spare. The
"advice" he offered us was very good,
(what there was of it,) but we do not like
to take " advice" from one who has to ad
vertise for it. We must confess that in
some degree we have been rightly com
pared to the renowned Don Quixotto.
*We were not dleceived it) the object of our
attack-we never could have mistaken
"Inquisitor" for a "giant," for we accus
ed him from the first or being "an airy
minded s'ribbletr;" he now not only con
fesses that, but frankly acknowledges him
self to be "A Windmill !"-Yes A Wind
rmill!!l This is all we ask-it is all that
"justice to the Ladies" requires.-And
now "Inquisitor," we will meet-break

THE.CHAR-risTs la GREAT BRITAIN.
Much excitement still prevailed atourlinst
dates frotm England in relation to the Corn
Laws, and the course of the Ministers upon
that subject. What is termed the -'Peo
ple's Charter" was obtaining signatures in
the manufacturing districts, and it wvas ex
pectetd that.upwards of two millions would
be in readiness by the 6th of May, the
time designated for the presentation of the
petition to the House of Commons. This
document purports to deamid from the
House, the rights of Universal Suffrage,
the Vote by Ballot,.the payment of mem
bers, the abolition of the Corn Laws. &c.
It is believed that it will be refused by the
House, which the leaders of the Chartists
expecting, call upon every man who has
signedhis name~to arm and prepare for fight
ing for his right. TheLondonCorrespondent
of the Courier and Enquirer says:
These threats of resortinig to physical
force have now become perfectly open with
the principal leaders of the people, who
are nowv assembled in London as delegates
to w t is terrnied the National Conven

at two of which I have recently attended.

SUBSTITUTE FoR THE Su.-The new
ly invented light of M. Gaudin, on which
experiments were recently made at Paris,
is an improved modification of the well
known invention of Lieutenant Drum
mond. While Drummond pours a stream
of oxygen gas through spirits ol wine, upon
unslacked lime, Gaudin makes use of a
more etherial kind of oxygen, which he
conducts through burning essence of tur
peutine. The Drummond light is 1500
times stronger than that of burning gas;
the Gaudin light is, we assured by the in
ventor, as strong as that of the sun, ot
thirty thousand times stronger than gas,
and of course, ten times more so than that
of the Drummond. The method by which
M. Gaudin proposes to turn the new in
vention to use is singularly striking. He
proposes to erect in the island of the Pont
Nettf, in the middle of the Seine and cen

Seat of Government for Texas.-The
steamboat Cuba arrived here yesterday
from Galveston. The papers brought by
her were of a date not tore recent than
those received by the Columbia. A pri

from Houston, later than previous advices
that gives important information respect

The Commissioners, it seems, have loca

at a point called Waterloo, thirty miles
above Bastrop, and ten miles below the

HUMAN OCCUPATIoNs.-Why is it that
we find so many in all professions, occu
pations, and trades, who are dissatisfied
men? They seem to be moving in a sphere
in life for which they are neither fitted by
education, nor taste. The answer to this
question is the most important view ofthe
theme. It is because the profession, trade,
or occupation, is-forced upon the child, be
rore his mind has acquired the power ol
judging; before his tastes are developed,
and his genitts, or aptitude to any one pur
suit, isevinced. Many men study law,
who had better have been farmers or tne
chanics, and many mechanics, had bettet
been lawyers. The parent, instead ol
studying the disposition of his child, give
him such'a calling as agrees with his owti
taste, rather than the child's, and perhaps,
by this course, unfits him for hope of use
fulness. There is undoubtedly such a
thing as natural taste; a taste not innate,
but resulting from organization, or early,
insensible education. The eye of the
painter, the car of the musician, the love
of mathematies belonging to sedentary
men, and the phlegmatic temperament, al
prove this. If then this natural taste
should be consulted, instead of pursuini
the arbitrary course now so common, w<i
might hope for better work, in all the oe
cupations of life. Besides a man's mora
character often depends upon the interesi
he feels in his occupation. When thiey
dislike it., they take every occasion to rit
themselves of it for the time, and cont rac1
habits of idleness, which lead to povert y
and in nine cases out of ten, lead to vice.
