What do I Think? I
S3T A correspondent, who signs himself.
E. A. G., in reply to a letter of his to Mrs.
Francis D. Gage, inquiring of her what she
thinks of the Fugitive Slave Law, received the
following poetical answer, which not only has
the spirit of true poetry, but breaths senti
ments that should be chearished in the hearts
of all true friends of liberty. Ed Frek'x.
From the Ohio Repository.
"If yonr heart has burned with as deepen indig
nation as mine has, since the passage of that r u
gitive Law," it must be pretty well charred. But
siill, lam pioud of our country for I know and feel
thttt it is not the mauv, Ihe goon aud the true that
have done that evil thing. Oh that I had the in
spirution of a Sliukepp-are, h Bvron, or even a Ile-
nmns or an Osgood, while I answer your question
Blame me not if my song is tame my spirit is not,
Dn you ask whnt I think? Do yon ask what I feel?
Ciiuie my thoughts from iUejU? Is my heart made
til sift I?
Does the tninb skip and play, when he hears the wolf
Dos tils' NiL'htingnle sing in the vhtw of (he owl?
Do the deer oer the green hiis,go bounding no more?
Has the e;ile forgot oil pioud pinou to soar:
H;t e justice and mercy deserted the e;rl..;
Love, kindness and feeling the home & the hearth;
Could you think that aught else from my spirit
But a dirge for my Country of sorrow and woe?
A 'irge for my Country of guilt aud of wrong,
A dirge for the weak, broken down by ihe strong,
A dirge for the glory that's passing hwhv,
A dirge for our Fillmore, our Webster, our Clay?
Woe, woe to the few, who have sullied our stars.
Who've forgotten ourheroes, their toils &. their scars;
The curse of ihe victim shall b'ackeii each name,
The scorn of the line men shall hand it to fame
As a blot, a pollution where'er it is trused,
A word to be hated, dishonored, disgraced.
Oh Northmen! O Northmen! beware of the honr
When you sell yourselves out to the Slave holding
When you barter your soul for a five dollar fee; i
beware how you take up the shackles, to bind
The limbs that have left a harsh master behind.
Beware how yon stand in the way of the brave
Who has ma ohood to feel he will not be a slave.
Beware, if vou covet such bloodshed and strife.
How you trifle with what is far dearer than life;
fr or hands strong and willing, Tom hill top oc plain,
Will dare you to fasten the 'fugitive's chum.'
Oh! who were your sires! Came they not f.om that
Who snurn'd the oppressor with heart & with hand,
Who with sword of Rebellion bouud firm on their
Went forth with a strong will to be freeman or die?
Signed iteir hands not that great declaration that we
o boast; that all men are born equal and tree.
And now will you sully the name of those sires.
Wilt you pull down home altars and put out home
Will you break the bruised heart tor the tinge. of the
And smother the Godlike that's burning within!
Oh Northmen! Oi. Northmen! beware of the day
When vou place yourselves thus in hostile array
Uainst the seeker ot t reedum, wnntrrer nt nueg
Though his skin may be sab e, his soul may be true.
Is Ihe Negro a man? Hath his voice not atone,
A language, a music, that answ ers your own!
Hath he not the same hopes; hath he not ths same
Feels he not the same joys; weeps he not the same
Do not the same love s make his pulse wildly start,
Are not wile mother sister, as dear to his heart.
Bears he not the same sorrow; the same chastening
Has he not the same Savior; hashcnotiliesjm. God?
Oh Northmen! Oh Northmen! will vou be the knave
That wilt turn out to fetter the Fugitive Slave,
And hind like a beast for a master's cmirol.
The man to whom God gave n reasoning soul,
And help bear him b:.ck lo Slitvedom again.
To toil out his years 'uealh the lash and the chain?
A curse to the land where his sweat drops shall fall,
A curse to thn counirv that holds htm in thrall.

A true republican looks with sympathetic
interest upon nil classes of men who earn their
bread by the sweat of the brow ; but of course
there must be vocations for which one has a
particular regard, and we confess we know of
none mure important, nor a class more gener
ally useful, than that of printers. From a long
flailv mid i-oiiMtanl association with them, wo
j li.ive !e li ned to lok upon them as one large
fiiiiiiy nervous. jnvial, thoughtful, witty, bilious,
i poor proud, willing-, talkative in relation to
whom we stand ms a sm t of half-brother, or
! socond-cousin on a luntr visit to them. There
i they stand at their cases breathing machines,
magical aut'imatta daugt-rreotyping, as it
' were, the pasiiii; scenes of life's changeful
panorama. Sending forth into the world the
! world's history of itself, with such a generally
I accurate minuteness, such order nnd punctu
! a:iity, that Ihe unadvised world conceive, if
! they think anything about their benefactors,
! that the toil is not only easy but amusing
the printer has such a fine chance lo get the
Favored race! the average duration of a
printer's life is estimated at twenty-eight
years! Agreeable and healthy must be the
occupation that has such an effect upon the
system. A printer is litte rally a galley slave,
though he is nominally paid for his labors.
What amount of wages will compensate him
for the loss of proper exercise, pure nir and
reasonable sleep ? How much gold will purge
the lead from his system ? What ecstatic en
joyment is there in his employment which, in
the round of hisabreviated years will compen
sate him for the years he is deprived of? He
looks upon the fair vista of a "happy old age"
as Moses viewed the land of promise a vision
of beauty not his fortune to realize.
Vte really think that if there is anything
which an age of intelligence like this has to re
proach itself with, it is neglect of the printers,
in view of their scanty rewards and their hope
less, refugeless, unhealthy drudgery. Emty
praises may be bestowed upon them by some
artful, political demagogue, and they may be
toasted at festivals, in a conscending way, but
words will not reward them, nor build an asy
lum for the consumptive, nor put bread into
the mouths of the printer and his family, when
temporarily or permanently thrown out of
work by dull business, or of the sickness re
sulting from his vocation. Hard life and ill
rewarded. (Boston Waverly Mag.
Two carrier pigeons, let loose by Sir James
Ross, one of the seekers for Sir John Franklin,
have arrived at Ayr, Scotland, and made their
way to their formor dovecote. One bore the
mutilated nnd illegible remains of a letter; it
had apparently been shot at, having lost its
legs. It is supposed that they had flown
about two thousand miles. Sir James took
five such pigeons with him,
"It is a curious fact," says some entomolog
ists, "that it is only the female musquito that

not at all "curious."
A Farmer's Life.
I The TTon. .Tospnli R Williams hna rpcpntli'
d0iver(,d an ,1(drt,ss before the Micliigan State
A,r,icultial Society, at Ann Arbor, which is
distinguished by the soundness of its views
no less than by the perspicuity with which
they are advanced. We sincerely wish that
we could attora room, consistently with our
engagements, for the whole of this sterling
production ; but bsing unable to do so, we pre
sent to our readers an extract from it, devoted
to a consideration of the farmer's calling. It
is as follows:
"The best faculties of men must be devoted
to the farmer's pursuits; the best intellect
must be engaged in it; and the farmer's life
must bo field wide and attractive enough for
the engrossment and developement of every
human faculty, or error.or ignorance and thrift
lessness, will not be explored, nnd the calling
will not secure the elevated position it deserves
Happily a rapid change is perceptible. The
realative position of professional, mercantile,
and farming pursuits are changing day by day,
the hrst are no longer sougnt with such avid
ity, the last no longer shunned. A wise man
should never encourage his children to as
sume the duties, vexations, and hazards of pre
carious and unhealthy pursuits, no matter how
dazzling the prospect, how brilliant the prize.
There is a higher object than wealth to be
gained sound sleep and sound health;
higher object than personal distinction a com
posed conscience. In limes past there seems
to have been a kind of infatuation among the
farming communitv in regard to evasion of
their honorable calling. Thirty years ago a
father was prons to act with his children as
though he himself followed a degraded call
ing. He seemed to deem professional or mer
cantile life the only road to high respectabili
ty, or social or official distinction. Ihe Web
sters, the Wrights, and the Fillmores, were
not retained to ennoble their own, but crowd
ed off to illustrate and adorn some other profes
sion. Jt has somewhat mended of late. It
bids fair to become perfectly sound. It cer
tainly will, if men will speak the truth, and
hear the truth, and practice on its precepts.
i he world will never regard the farmer's call
ing as the most honorable till it is so cherished
by himself. In public estimation a pursuit is
appreciated at the value placed upon it by
those who follow it. Turn back, then, the tide
of public sentiment among the agricultural
population. 1 he sturdy sense ot many a stur
dy farmer pierces the gauze delusions thrown
around the fanciful and frivolous life of the
townsman. In the expression of his judgment
sonnd, be yet practically may have sought all
his lite to makf. his children the very butter
flies he detests. If he would have his occu
pation take rank as the most respected and
most dignified among me,., he must not him
self act as though he regarded itasa dull and
stupid exercise of human powers. I know
not so small a fni m, so limited a garden, that
may not engross all a man s (acuities and con
sume all his leisure. The time may be dis
tant when each farmer may be a geologist, a
naturalist, a chemist.but the time has arrived
when the application of science to agriculture
is producing a peaceful, certain, and gigantic
revelation, elevating the calling, multiplying
its results, increasing its comforts, and promot
ing a higher civilization of the race.
"A farmer should not consider it presump
tion, but a duty, to gladden his home with all
true, and genial, and intrinsically valuable
comlorls, that shed a glow and attractiveness
around the private home of the citizen. He
can make it more inviting. There are few
comforts and appliances about the home of a
townsman which a countryman cannot enjoy.
There are a thousand pleasures around a coun
try residence which all the capital of a city
cannot buy. A farmer surveys from his win
dow with unalloyed delight the held now
'groaning by superior cultivation, under twice
the crop of previous years. While he gains it,
the world gains it It is so much added to
production. But multiplied and dubious are
the ways in which a townsman makes his
gains. Sometimes 'tis the pound of flesh.
Sometimes 'tis extortion. Some times n doub
le value is given to the raw material, but of
tener his gain is loss to another. To say the
least, the townsman is sumetimes exposed to
the inevitable necessities of expediency and
dishonor. From such necessities the farmer
can, if he will, always be free.
God made the country, man made the city.'
Just so superior as God's works are to man's
works just so far are the studies of the coun
try to the studies of the town. If you look
upon the rich and gorgeous developement of
nature from spring to fall, from the tiny germ
to the abundant crop, with no more delight
than on piles of stone, and brick, and mortar,
then your life anywhere will be dusiltory, hard,
and dulL When he gazed upon the miracle
of his own frame, in awe admiration, David
exclaimed : 'I am fearfully and wonderfully
made.' Yet each plant and spire of grass,
each tree and fruit, each creature, every form
of vegetable and animal life, is a growing and
living miracle, no less wonderful than the frame
of man. If he studies them all as living illus
trations of scientific truths, and he delights at
each new discovery of the capacity and prop
erties of a plant or an animal, and each new
insight into the laws which regulate its propa
gation and perfect growth, then indeed will a
uirmer become a philosopher and a man of
science, and his lite will be a ceaseless round
of triumphant experiment and success. From
the most trifling act, to the performance of the
highest duty of a noble calling, his life will be
full of dulightful satisfaction. The favorite
domestic animal, which he has watched and
and fed from a nursling, seems to lick his hand
in gratitude, and almost eagei to contribute to
his support. Look along that avenue of state
ly trees, groaning beneath an abundance of de
licious fruit, or throwing a refreshing shade
over the weary traveler. But yesterday it was
a bundle of mere twigs, which he providently
brought home, grasped perhaps in a single
hand. It may be that wide fields around him
have been transformed from the wilderness
by his energy, and now blossom like the rose.
No groans nor tears, no sinks of misery and
crime, no squalid povert)', nre witnessed in his
daily walks, and in the performance of his dai
ly duty. His mind need not be tortured with
intense anxiety because struggling on the
verge of commercial ruin. He runs less haz
ard of having his body racked with every dis
ease to which muscle and nerve, head and
stomach, are liable. But I fear I am straying
wide from my subject. I wished to show that
the pursuits of a farmer may be rendered the
most intensely interesting, the most noble, and
the most engrossing of all the faculties, of both
body and mind, of human occupations. As
soon as it is made so, it will become the most
profitable and thrifty also. What a farmer
wills his life and profession to be, that will it

Gen. Taylor's Will.
Gen. Taylor's last will is said by the Wash
ington correspondent of the New York Her
ald, to have been made before the ballle-of
of Monterey in 1846. He made ample provis
ion for his wife, giving her three large store
houses and a lot, and more than a hundred
shares of bank stock, and six or eight slaves
in Louisville, Reetucky. To his sou Richard
he p-ave his plantations in Mississippi and j
Louisiana, and twenty thousand dollars. 1
Mrs. Bliss and Mrs. Wood he gave thousand
dollars each, and to the former then unmarii-
cd. several negro women. It was h;s wisl
that the plantation should not be divided fur
ten years, and from the proeecds of the crops
he directected that his daughters should re
ceive twentv thousand dollars each in ndditinn
to the sum before mentioned. Judge McGhee
of Mississippi was made his executor. He
made provisions for the payment of a security
debt of $1,000; he owed "nothing on his own
aceount. He desired that his servants should
be moderately worked and kindly treated

Farewell of the Sou J to tbe Body.
Compttnion dear the hnnrsdraw nig-h,
The sentence cpeedslo die, lo die;
So long in mystic union held.
So close in strong embrace compelled,
Hoiv canst thou bar Ihe dread decree.
Thai strikes thyclisping nerves from me?
To Him, who, on this mortal shore.
The name encircling vestment wore,
I'o Him I look, to him I hend.
To Him thy shuddering frame commend.
If I have ever caosed thee pain.
The throbbing brest. the burning br.iin,
With earns and vigils turned thee pale.
Or scorned thee when thy str-iigth did fail,
Forgive! forgive! thy task doth ceasp,
Friend! Lover! let us part in race.
That thou didpt sometimes clog mr course,
Or with thy trifling check my force.
Or lure from heaven my wavering trust,
Or bow my drooping wing to dual,
I blame the not; our strife is done:
I knew thou wert the wenker on:
The vase of earth the trembtingclod,
Constrained to hold the breath of God.
Well hath thon in my service wrought:
Thy brow hath mirrored forth mv thought,
To wear my smile thy lips have glowed,
Thy tear to speak my sorrow flowed;
Thine ear hath brought me rich supplies
Of varying tinctured inlodies;
Thy hands my pronited dfeds hnve done,
Thy feel have on my errands run;
Yes, thou hast marked my hidHing well,
Faithful and true Farewell! "Farewell!
Go to thy reFt. A quiet bed
The earth with sw-eet Sowers shall spread,
Where 1 no more thy sleep mny break,
With fevered dream nor rndely wnke '
Thy weary feet. Ah, quit thy hold.
For thou an faint, and chill, and cold,
And still thy grasp and groan and pain,
Do bind me, pitying, in thy chain,
Though angels warn me hence to soar,
Where I can share thv woes no more.

"There have been merry times a Michael

been merry limes a Michaelmas. Mayors and
aldermen were then elected, and made tliei
bows to each other; and be sure there were
mere doings when mayors and aldermen,
were in the case. Stubble geese like the
alderman, were now in prime condition; but
being the weak, according to the proverb,
went to the wall, and thence to the kitchen
and twirled np the spit It was a jolly day
in old mother Church : she ordered every body
that could get it to eat a goose in honor of
St Michael and all tbe angels; we may sup
pose because they were not such geese as to
quarrel with their comforts in heaven at tne
suggestion of Lucifer. So in church and cor
poration, in abbey and town hall, in farm and
cottage, there was a universal eating of fat
geese; and nobody that 1 ever heard ot com
plained of the injunction. Queen Elizabeth
was eating her goose at the time that the
news of the defeat of the Spanish Armada
was brought to her, and no doubt she thought
the Spaniards great and very green geese for
having come there, and that they would be
nctich greater if they ever came again.
"Jiver after, Queen Kess most nssidously
ale her gosse on Michaelmas, and, probably,
with Spanish chestnuts, as people on the
Continent do now; or, if she did not, she
would not have repented it if she had, for it is
a princely addition. Queen isess ate her goose
nil the more nssidouslv because it was an old
saying, that if vou ate your goose at Michael
mas, you would have plenty of money all the
year round a prescription so pleasant, that
if its efficacy were at all proportioned to its
agreeabless, people would be geese.indeed, not
to comply with. How indeed, could any one
desire a .pleasanter way of replenishing a pur
pose? Queen Bess was always dreadfully in
want of money, however; and as this come to
be seen, and not the less to be felt by
those who had the taxes to pay, and as no
more armadas came to be defeated, people
lost all faith that Robert Southey had, when
he addressed one in a sonnet, and asking the
goose where it could have been so bravely fed
nnd received no answer, added of himself:
But this I know, that thou art very fine
Seasoned with sage, with onions, and port wine.
"Jolly limes, then, it is clear there have
been at Michalmas. Into these, except in the
city of London, there has been made a dread
ful inroad by the Municipal Corporation re
form act, which forbade all eating of Michael
mas goose in a corporate capacity. Driven
out of convents and corporations, yet I imagine
roast goose at Jlichaelmashnds a welcome re
ception in many a farm, gentleman's, nnd other
private house. Roast pigs no longer run
about with oranges in their mouths, crying
"Come eat me I" but stubble geese really do
seem to meet you at every turn, and cackle
out invitingly that pathetic request. At
markets and poulterers they crowd upon you;
in lanes and upon commons they nibble at
your heels, and hiss to inform you that thoy
are fat and foolish, and bog you to introduce
them to a sage. They stand m flocks fit
stubblefield gates, aud look imploringly; every
where yon are called on to note that they are
no longer rxreen, but have grown grey and

Farmer N., of Newbury, was a miserly old
codger, Sometimes, in his eagerness to grasp
the dimes, he would run rather close to tha
boundary line which seperates honesty from
dishonesty ; and he has been known to go so
far as even to step upon the line. I will not
say he ever got fairly over, but he came o
near doing it 'twas hardly worth a dispute
He was deaf as a haddock as a very post
and when ocassion required, he was more
deaf than both of thse similes but together.
He once sold ft load of hay to his neighbor
who, contrary to N.'s expectations, after see
ing it weighed, stayed So see it unloaded.
But a few forkfuls were pitched off, when
bouncing big rock rolled from off the load
then another and then a third, came "bangl"
upon the barn floor. "Whtt's this?" queried
the buyer in a loud voice. "Most nil herd'
grass, this year," replied the deaf man. - But

the boulders which lay arrayed In judg
ment against the dishonest Layman, what
does all this mean?" "Shan't cut nigh o
much hay this year as I did last,", replied
the dealer in herd's grass. Just as he had
finished the last sentence, down thunder
ed a rousing junk of granite making a deep
indentation in the barn floor with one of iu
sharp angles. "I say, neighbor N," scream
ed forth the purchaser of fodder; "I want
to know what in h are these ?" pointing
to the boulders and big lump of granite.
Old N. took a mighty forkful of the herd'
grass, gave it a toss into the hayloft, then,
leaning upon his fork, ejected Lis huge quid of
tobacco and replaced it with a fresh one, took
a view of the fragments of stone wall that lay
before him, and with one af the blandest smil

Extraordinary Unman Curiosities.
A. Mr. 8. B. Knox has bronght to Boston
a boy and a girl, of the Kaanas, a tribe of an
almost extinct race. I hey are described in
the papers of that city as most singular' look
ing creatures. The boy is thirty-two inches
in height, and weighs sixteen pounds, and
about ten years of age. The girl is twenty
eight inches in height, weighs fourteen pounds
and is supposed to be about 14 rears of age.
Their heads are not larger than a new born
infant's, and they are almost destitute of fore
heads, while their noses are finely developed
straight and long, and project at a well de
fined angle. Their eyes are full dark and lus
trous. Their heads are covered with strong
dark hair, which descends forward nearly to
the eyebrows. The face is very sharp, tha
upper lip projecting, and tbe chin receding in
a corresponding - degree. Notwithstanding
the almost entire absenceof forehead, there ia .
not in the profile view the least resemblance
to the Simia tribe. They are said to belong
(o the surviving remnant of an ancient order
of priesthood, called Kaanas, which by con
stant intermarriage with its own cast bas
dwindled down to a few individuals, diminu
tive in stature, and imbecile in intellect.
Tbeir headi and faces resemble exactly tha
hgures on the bas-reliefs in the temple rains
described in Stephen's Central America.
They are orphans, and at the close of a wat
between two of the Aztec tribes, fell into the
hands af a traveller named Hammond. They
are lively, playful, and affectionate, but' all
attempts to teach them a word of English have
thus far proved unsuccessful; they occassios-
ally utter a few gibberish sounds. . ,'
Crazy People. .
It is generally considered a terrible calam
ity for a person to go crazy ! There are very
few persons who are not wild infatuated, or, m
plain terms, mad, unpon some subject or oth
ther. Some are crazy about politics, and some
about religion some are crazy after money,
and some after wine and women some are
crazy about unity, and some about trinity
some are crazy about banks, and some about
railroads; some are crazy about law, and some
about physic; some are crazy about (heir own
existence.and some about the existence of their
neighbors. In fact, when a man thinks con.
stantly and intently on a favorite theme, his
mind is apt to run into vagaries and be will
become, to all intents and purposes, crazy
about that which most interests him, while at
the same time perfectly sound and reasona
ble on all other topics. When these vagaries
are indulged and courted by nervous irritable
persons, the mind becomes diseased, and delir
ium finally ensues. Cin. NonparieL 1
The Tnrkls& Empire,
A very interesting article appears ia the
dnily Advertiser, on the the present condition
of the Turkish Empire, showing the ameliora
tion which it has undergone during the reign
of its present sovereign, and that of his im
mediate predecessor. The article is presumed
to be from the pen of Mr. Brown, who accom
panied the Turkish Ambassador.
He says that standing army of the feultan
is composed of about 120,000 men, divided in
to six corps, composed and commanded wholly
by Musselmen. Another corps is now being
formed near Danube, on the Hungarian fron-
ler. Christians are exempted from military
duty by the payment of a tax. The Sultan's
navy is composed of from eighty to ninety
vessels of two three-deckers, 11 seventy-
finirs fifteen frigates, eight corvettes, twenty
nine brigs and schooners, six steameres, of
from 400 to 450 horse power, and fourteen
tliers of various powers. Some of the best
of these ships were built by Americans of
iSew York, tho late li. it- .ct;ord, and .
