THE MONTH OF JULY.
This month was originally called Quin
tilis by the Romans. This name it re
tained until the time of Julius Cesar, who
reformed the Roman Calendar, and gave I
it his own name. The painters. says an I
old writer, represented July in a jacket of <
a light yellow, eating cherries, his face
and bosom sun-burut; having his head
adorned with a garland of Centaury, and
Thyme, bearing a scythe on his shoulder,
und having a bottle banging at his girdle,
and by him, a lio,. Mid burning heat,
and parching winds, and brilliant skies,
"Child of the Sun, July refulgent comes."

laden gale, nor does the earth greet him
with her smiles. As he appears, no flow
ers spring up on her bosom. A few be
deck the forests here and there, but thous

fiery breath. Few of the animal creation
now bask them in the burning sunshine.
They retreat into the dark forests,-they

This month is memorable in the history
of America. On the fifth of July,some of
the provinces of South America, threw off
the yoke of old Spain, and established
their own free governments. But July is
particularly memorable in the history of
the North American States. It i6 peca
liarly dear to the citizens of the United
States. In this month, and on this day,
our illustrious forefathers severed the bond
which united us to a mighty empire.
What mighty events affecting the destiny
of the whole human race were consequent
iereon, history has traced in bright and
ever-during characters. From that eventful
lay, to the present hour, the march of onr
country has been onward! onward! From
a little colony, she has iecome a great
and happy republic. Her career of pros
perity has received no cheek, but has ad
vanced with rapid strides. The old Thir
teen are still bound together by the sam
holy tie,which united them in days of peril.
But numerous young and vigorous States
have been added to the number. From,
the Atlantic to the Pacific-from the bleak
regions of Maine. to the sunny climes of
Louisiana-One flag waves over our bound
less territory-..One language is the mother
tongue of our people-One religion dispeu

Let every American breathe forth this
heart-felt prayer for our Union,
Esto perpetua ;
and let every lover of liberty,in every land.
repeut a loud Amen!
The Chartists, Radicas,' and Republi
cans of Enigland, recetly presented to the
British Parliament, a petition which was
nearly three miles long. It contained 1,
250,000 signatures. It was carried to Lon
don, in procession, with great ceremony.
The Petitioners demand Universal Suf
frage, the Ballot and Annual Parlia
mnents. They demand that fair and ade
quate remuneration be given to the Rep
resentatives, for their services. They
wish that "all future elections of the mem
bers of Parliament, should be in the way
of secret ballot and that the duration of
Parliament so chosent shall in no case ex

Working of the Divorce Bill-T here
have recently, been many applications for
divorce betwveen married couples, laid be
fore the Legislature of Connecticut. This
state it is said, I-as forfeited all claim to
the title of'-'the land of steady habits."
The marriage yoke is evidently gallhng to
a number of her people. The Divorce1
Bill, "the great measure ofdeliverance,and
liberty" (not the Sub-Treasury Bill) is
* exceedingly popular in that Common

t. A tiger six weeks old, was taken on
)oard the East Indiaman, in 1790, and
:arried to England, before it was a year
>d. It was as playful and harmless as
kitten. It was placed in the Tower of
[London, and was never guilty of any sav
ige trick. Bishop Ieber says that a gen
:leman in India, had an yena for several
rears which followed him like a Dog, and
awned on his acquaintance. A tame
arocodile, was kept at Chantilly, 1828,
0 mild that it was cares4fhy its keeper
vithout danger. Francis. I. had a tame
Leopard which he carried with him in
iunting, and Mr. Barrow procured one in
Vfrica,which became as gentle as a kitten.
'ir. F. Cuvier describes a Wolf that was
ike a young dog. Goldsmith mentions of
Father C., that lie had taught monkeys
o attensl him, guard him while asleep
gainst thieves and rats, comb his head
ind bring his water. These facts have
teen collected principally from "Turner's
Sacred History of the World," and the
iumber miglit be much increased. In
hese instances, the savage ferocity of the

TE LAsT OF TruE Husuo~os.--De
parted this litfe tn this city on the 17th intst.
Mr. Stepheni Thomas, in the 89th year of~
his ace. Mr. T'. wvas born in the villagej
of Eymet, dlepartmnent La Dordogne,j
Prance, on the 19th of A ugust. A. D. 1750,r
ad fled with an elder maiden sister td
London, in 17.54, to join the Rev, Mr.
Gibert, who, with his congregation hadli
miso been compelled to seek an asylum
rrom the persecutiotns which they endured
in their native land. This congrecationi
f. xiles'consisted of nearly 100 individu
als; a cd by a kind Providence, they arrived
dere in safety on the 12th of April, 1794.
wvhere the subject of this notic~e has ever
'ince resided. At an early period of the
Rlevolutionary strtuggle, Mr. T. returned
:0 his native country on business, where
le suff'ered a painful detention from his
'amnily for about three years. On his ne
urn, ho was capttured by the British fleet
n the Chesapeake, where he remained
amp lime, a prisoner. At length he re- I
urned to Charleston. and immediately
ni-ned the troops in defence of his adopted
'ouintry; was at the battle of Fort Moul
rie, andl afterwards was with Gen. Marion
o the close of the wnr..
At what age Mr. Thomas became a pro
es-or of religion, we have not ascertained; 1
ut from some c'ircutmstanices it is pre
unmed that, like Olhadinh, he wvas one who I
feared God from his vouth." For manyv
ears he was a Ruling EI'er of the Frenech i
'rorestant chtrch in this city-a chturch e
triccly Calvinistic in its creed, and Pres
yterinn in its model. The blowing up of
the church edifice, in the great fire of 1796
the subsequent death of their Pastor, the
Rev. ir. Boudinot, and the delay experi
enced in obtaining another, were among
the causes which led to the dispersion of
the flock among other chitrchesofthe city.
Still there are strong attachments amont:
the descendants of the congregation to the
religion or their fatlters. But none of the
original flock now remain.
When the second Preshyterian Church
was established in 1810, hir. Thomihs was
chosen one of its first rulting Elters-an
orfice. the duties of which he faithfully and
conscientuously performed till within the
last five or six years, when the infirmities
of age rendered him physically, and even
mentally unable to take the oversight of
the flock of Christ.
Mr. T. retained throngh life the strong
feelits anI rietd principles for which the
original Hu guenots were distinguished.
The persections which he and hi; riily
land endured for conscience qake, coul
not he effaced from his mind: %nd hence in
part arose hiq ardeur love of liberty-his
strong attachrment to the principles of tie
Reformnation, and his opposition to every
thing peculiar to the Chur-h of' Rome.
Twice he sacrifih ed all-once wheit a
youth. for the religion of his fathers; and
once when in manhood, with a family to
support, for the liberty of his adopted coun
try. But lie still lived to a cood old age,
and his children, and his children's children
to the fifth eeneration, arose to call him
blessed. His descendants consist of be
tween sixty and seventy-of whom thro"
are his children, and four his great grand
children. Thus halving served the will of
God in his generation, lie has at last *one
to his rest, leaving a charncter free from re
proach; a memorial of his filelity in his
family and in the Chnreh; and a testitmony
which in its influence will- live when his
tnme shall no longer be remembered.
