Frederick Haated's Pamphlets.
"We hare deceived a vojame of pam?
phlets, or rather sermons, essays and let
tera, from the pea of one Frederick Hasted,
au old man of seventy, an Englishman,
-who seems to be a sort of peupatetic, for
his essays are written from various places,
lie is a dreamer, an enthusiast, means
well, co doubt, and makes of Bible topics
his familiar themes. He addresses, first,
the professing believers ia Christ, and
asks them the question, which we may
suppose to be one of singular novelty, if
it be not necessary for the furtherance of
the cause of God that the doctrines of the
believers in Christ should be uniform. His
simplicity ia surely a rare merit now-a
days. We doubt if any of the churches
will make answer. We find his first pa?
per addressed to Franklin Pierce, when
President, in 1S54, in which he proposes a
subscription for buying up the negroes
and setting them free-a suggestion which,
duly carried out, would tend greatly to
the relief of many a luckless slaveholder
.of the present day. In December, 1S60,
he wrote to President Lincoln, telling him
that a rumor from Washington informed
him that he (the President) and Hamlin,
the vice-President, were both to be assas?
sinated. Very curious, surely, wheu we
consider the final fate ol Liucoln. Ho
wrote" several letters to Horace Greeley,
his head still running on the slavery ques?
tion. There are several letters to Lincoln.
In one of them, he gravely proposes to
him that, as England seema to hold Cana,
da with a very slack hand, he should do
well and wisely to swap for the Canadas
and British possessions in North America
the several States of Mississippi, Alabama
Georgia, the Carolinas. Florida, and that
portion of Louisiana lying Northeast of
the Mississippi. Rather a large and mag?
nificent trading transaction! In April,
1861, he addressed a letter "to the Hon.
Jefferson Davis, at Moutydmew," in
which he tenderly exhorts him to turn
from the error of his ways, give up his
vanities and false gods, eschew slavery,
and he offers to subscribe one hundred
dollars as his contribution towards the
purchase of the freedom of the negro.
He does not seem to have made any im?
pression upon Davis, nor does the money
seem to have paid over. Tho good old
man has nevertheless attained thc object
of his heart, and we declare to him our
perfect readiness to receive the money
which Mr. Davis declined. This is our
day of small things, and the smallest fa?
vors will be gladly received. We will
promise Mr. Hasted that in the expendi?
ture of his hundred dollara, we shall buy
?ny other than human flesh. And, verily,
.we need thia money for the market. But
enough of this amiable enthusiast, who
still continues, though at seventy years, to
canter about upon his hobby.
The terrible explosion at1nj>bile is now
supposed to be the work of incendiarism.

On the night before the explosion at
Mobile, he helped to lay three torpedoes
between two buildings, both stored with
gunpowder. These three were laid by
him, with the assistance crUtwo other men,
under the direction of a Confederate ma?
jor, who, with drawn sword, threatened
the men with instant death on the slight?
est resistance. After the torpedoes \v<>re
laid, a shell with a long fuse attached was
yiven to him, and he was told where to
place it, at the end of the line made by
the three torpedoes. He did aa ho was
bid. He ascended a plank; he put down
the shell-the fuse uppermost. Then the
en4 of the fuse was lighted by the major,
the three men hurriedly getting out of the
way. The next morning, the explosion

We do net wonder that, wiih Ameri
ricans, the weather is such a frequent topic
of conversation. Ita changes are as fi ekle
and as sadden as are those cf the different
faces with whom we meet in society. Few
or no other countries are so continually
subject to as great transitions. During a
sultry day in midsummer, jjpor humanity,
with us, feels every nerve and fibre; each
one seems attached to u separate galvanic
battery, aud all are electrically charged to
their utmost tension. We almosr. lose our
self-control, and petulance is ready to
expresa discomfiture in coutnet with the
slightest opposing elements or objects.
We welcome sleep, and, like Sancho
Panza, bless its inventor. Perhaps, ere
?morning breaks, tigere comes a shower,
and then how swiftly do our nerves relax.
We become our happier selves again. jNo

gtune of lightning has restored to a happy
condition our atmosphere and ourselves.
Men of sittiirmine te upernment may ?jut,
bc as much affected by the weather as

pendent on the condition of tho air. Some
men can no more be lively in foul weather*1
than they can control their sick and well
days. Tiicy are at the mercy of the de
meats. And so, too, with the sensibilities
of the sanguine. Snch persons must have
their pleasures augmented by clear and
genial skies. If lightnings pia}- at sunset
and the day departs amid nature s tears,

good that night than would a pillow of j

neither storm nor calm disturbs their

a hard stroke uponathe cranium, will in?

vegetating daily, which is to them the sum

the pleasures and miseries of a changeable
climate are diverse in the case of-each in?

antipathies or susceptibilities that they

ragingly of thc work, and says that it will
bc pressed forward with all the energy
possible to the circumstances of the com?

of Columbia and thu country to make us

manner witn the terms of General Kirby

moved across the Ilio Grande into Mexico,
taking with them their arms. Their artil?

at Matamoros. It ls said that the last of

hy Mexican residents, who organized a
home guard for the preservation of order
soon after the evacuation commenced.
After taking possession of Brownsville,

to the wants of th? city, "and surely the

when there is no militia duty to be done,
ought to suffice to give ua at least three
companies, as before. Thia done, and a
proper esprit da corps inspired among
