der irar is evidently to be the only protection

- "The people on the southern border will
take down the guns with which their fathers
slaughtered the Indians who stole tl eir cattle,
and shoot the Yankees who steal their negroes.
A foray into Pecnsylvania or Ohio, with
buruinj to the ground, a few inch to tens as
Harrisburg, and the hanging of a fere ct
judge at this criminal tliief named Person,
would soon teach tho amalgamating inhabi
. tants of Pennsylvaniajatid Ohio, that the stcal
ing'of their thickliped relations and superiors
inthe South is not that delightful amusement
they take it to be. It is thus that all the
border people of civilized countries have been
frared to virotect themselves. It was by ju
dicious and decisive incursions only, by bloody
fight and bloody seiges, by laying waste tlie
land, and burninff the towns of the fierce and
WW. Moors of SDain. that the Christians
of Castile and Arragan could secure their lives

with the Indians of the frontier, that Western

a hundred fold return of the scalping-koife and

quiet for tho plough-share and scythe. That
ume is returning. We venerate the brave
men that in those early days thus made a law
which would not be mistaken, and which could
not be evaded. In all these couutries, their

"The Man of Boss."
'"' The Providence joker, who paid $650 for
Jenny Lind ticket it is said, wears boots made
sharp at the toes with square heels.
He built a house recently, had all the doors
constructed to run on pulleys, like a window,
not mounted upon hinges as usual, the nouse
was built to receive a bride, who is reported
to b very beauti&il. On the occasion of his
marriage, instead of the usual tour, he sent
his wife to Boston, and went himself to New
York. Heis a ticket seller to the Railroad,
and part of his duty consists of carrying the
mail from the depot to the P. O. His horses
and carriage are both curious affairs, well suit
ed to so odd a genius. As a man he is pop
ular good natared and though affording much
mirth to his friends, is universally respected.
The recent nccounts from Nicaragua which
tato that a British naval force holds possession
f the fort of San Juan, and that British auth
ority is in ful exercise in that part of the State
.f Nicaragua, arc fully confirmed by a letter
from Mr. Chatficld to the Minister of Foreign
Relations of Nicaragua. J t has been univer
sally understood in this country that the treaty
negotiated at Washington by Messrs. Clar-
t-n and Buhvcr stipulated expressly for the
withdrawal by Great Britain of all her claims
to any prohctorate or oilier form of authority
over any portion of the Musquito coast or any
territorry pertaining to the States of Central ,
America. This understanding, we say, prt-
vailed universally in ihe Uniled Sla es, and it;
was deemed a matter of congratulation that
Hwo great nations at the head of the commer
cial world, could harmoniously unite in encour
aging the great undertaking of connecting
the two oceans by n ship canal for the bene
fit of ad nations, with a mutual forbearance
all attempts at securing exclusive advantages.
Hutu seems that bngiaml is disposed to
hold in her possession the A llanliu m
the canal which is at the mouth of the San I
Juan : and, so for as we can understand th
ground of her resumption in this verv
lanl particular, it would scene that, abondon- i
ing tne secondary agency oi a i, fOiectoratc
. l r
over the Mosquito country, she constitute her
self the legattee of that defunct system, and
claims sovereignty now in her own right. It
is impossible," says Mr. Chatficld, "that
Nicaragua should be ignorant of her Britanic
Majesty's relation to the Mosquito question, as
it has before it the letter of Viscount Palmer-
ston. of the date of the 15th of April last in
which he declares in the most clear and direct
terms the utter impnssihlity of acceding to
the pretensions of Nicaragua. On the other
hand the treaty of Messis Clayton and Bulwer
about which we have so mnch to say, and in
which vou express so much contltlonce ex-
press!' reconize the Musnvilo Kinadom
sets aside the rights whirh you pretend jVica
raona has on that coast"
Whether the British governments resorts
lo the quible of having given up her Protec
torate over the Musquito coast, and taken
sovereign possession in ils own name by virtue
of a transfes from the ridiculous ape of a king,
whom it had set up and crowned whether
it will urge that it had thus acquired actual
sovereignty over the coast in question before
the treaty of Washington was negotiated, and
that therefore the population of the treaty do
not apply to territory in Central America al
ready British whether this poor plea is to be
put forward ns a means of escape from the
plain and well understood obligations of the
treaty compact, v.e may have opportunity to
see hereafter, when inquiries from our govern
ment ou the snbiect shall have duly answered.

Best Joke of the Season.
About the time of the exitement in the vil
lage of Kalamazoo, about the sudden death of
eight or nine of those who took tea at the ex
change, of that place, a family of Hollanders
arrived in town. As a matter of course the
excitement ran high; the authorities of the
town mustered together a thousand feet of
lumber and erected a pest house in a seclud
ed spot in the forest into which they hustled
the Hollanders with as little delay as possible
notwithstanding the postestation of one of them
who appeared to be a leader, who asserted
that he had money enough to stay in any
place. They were kept there for about tnree
weeks, and on being released from their tem
porary prison, one of them commenced the
operation of purchasing property. He began
upon Ex-Governor Ransom, and bought him
out at $12,000. , He then bought out the
Judge of the Court, (Hczekiah (i. Wells,) at
$3,000. Henry Edwards was subsequently
bought out, and at last accounts, his lordship
of the pest house, was after Gen. Humphrey,
Hon. Charles E, Stuari. Gen Maffat, Col. Van
De Walker, and various others of the promi
nent dignities of that region. To wind up
with, he informed the gentlemen that there
were a few more coming shortly who would
lake the balance of the toicn.

EngJis'i and our Girls.
We wish the following might be copied
upon the blank leaf of the book most seen, in
"The English girl spends more than one
half her waking hours in physical amusements,
which tend to devolop and invigorate aud ri
pen the bodily poweis. She rides, walks,
drives, rows upon the water, runs, dances,
plays, sings, jumps the rope, throws the ball,
hurls the quait, draws the I ow, keeps up the
shuttlecock, and all this without having it
forever pressed on her mind that she is there
by wasting her time. She does this every
day, until it becomes a habit which she will
follow up through life. Her frame, as a natu
ral consequence, is larger, her muscular sys
tem better developed, her nervous system in
better subordination, her strength more endu
ring, and the whole tone of mine healthier.
She may not know as much as the age of nine
teen as the American girl ; as a general thing
she does not; but the growth of her intellect
has not been stimulated by hot house culture,
and, though maturity comes later, it wiil pro
portionably last longer. Eight hours of men
tal application each day for girls between ten
and nineteen years, or ten hours each day, as
is sometimes required at school, with two
hours for mals, one for religious duties, the
remainder for physical exercises, are enough
to break down the strongest constitution."

"The commitee appointed to treat with them
on the occasion represented, "That the Wyan

as to be capable, generally', of managing their
own affairs, and are qualified and calculated
to become useful citizens a large portion of
them being already engaged in agricultural

ment and these Indians have been accepted
as citizen of the United Slates.

The love of truth is the stimulus to all noble
conversation. The tree which springs from it
way have a thousand branches, but they will
all bear a golden and generous fruitage. It
is the loftiest impulse to inquire willing te re
ceive contemptuous of pretty curiositity, but
passionate for glorious knowledge. Speech
without it is but babble. Rhetoric more noisy
but less useful than the tinman's trade.
When the love of truth fires up the passions,
put its lightning in the brain, then men may
know that a prophet is among them. This
is the sprint; of all heroism, and clothes the
martvr with a flame that outshines the flame

Occupation fou Childrkn. The habits of
children prove that occupation is a matter of
necesssity with most ot them. I hey love to
be busy even about nothing, still more to be
usefully employed. With some children it i3
a strongly developed physical necessity, and.if
not turned lo good account, will be productive
of positive evil; thus verifying the old adage,
that "Idleness is tho mother of mischief."
Children should be encouraged; or, if indo
lently disinclined to do it, should be disciplined
in to performing for themselves every little of
fice relative to the toilet, which they are ca
pable af performing. They should also keep
their own clothes and other possessions in neat
order, and fetch for themselves whatever they
want; in short tlu-y should learn to be as in
dependent of the services of others as possible,
tilting the alike to make a good use of pros
perity and to meet with fortitude anv reverse
of fortune that may befall them. We know
of no rank, however exalted, in which such a
system would not prove beneficial.

Virginia is famous for many things, but in

At a Grand Assembly held at James' Gittie

among which is:

In 1840 it was 102,193. It is mentioned as

Each knock at the door each jar or jingle of

moaning of the wind through the casement,
serve only to make night hideous. The mid

hour of two strikes sometimes it is three in
the morning ere his step is heard; and then
he enters, pale, hagard, tormented with pas

without a kind word, a soft look, or an en

prize above all earthly jewels. For every
pang thus wantonly infloted on a tender wife

Tbc Great Holiday Pictorial.
Brother Jonathan for the Christmas Holi
days, and New Years, 1851, has been sent to
us by Wilson & Co., the New York publishers.
It would be almost impossible to overate the
splendid collection of engravings which ap

spirited picture of "the Country Girl in New

and either that or the group of spirited por

worth double the cost of the whole paper.
Another gem is the "Dream of Love and
Pleasure," a large picture occupying the first
page. We have not room to enumerate a
lithe of tho beautiful engravings and popular
reading which go to make up this stupendous
sheet. Of one thing we are certain. It is by
far the best and handsomest pictorial paper
ever issued in America or anywhere else.

Of the Governor for a day of Thanksgiving.
IN conformity with an ancient Christian
custom of the people of the States composing
this Union, and in conformity with the obliga
tions Inch all people nre under to the Great
Ruler of the Universe for the daily blessings
they are receiving at His hands, the General
Assembly of the State of Ohio did, at its last
session, rasolve That the Governor be re
quested to issue within the year his proclama
tion recommending to the people of the State
the observance of a day of thanksgiving and
prayer to Almighty God for His'blessings to
us as a people.
Now, therefore I, Seabury Ford, Govern
or of the State of Ohio, in compliance with
and in obedience to recognized duty, do ap
point and set apart Thursday, the 28th day of
November next, to be observed as a day of
thanksgiving and prayer throughout the State.
And I hereby recommend to all the people
that, abstaining from all secular employments,
they repair to their usual places of worships
and feeling their entire dependence upon that
God to whom belongeth "the earth and the
fulness Ihereofj" they render to him thanks
and praise for peace in our borders, for gener
al health for abundant harvests, for the spread
of knowledge and for all his temporal bless
ings; but especially for the Christian religion,
and the inestimable blessing flowing to us
from the prevalence of the piineiples of the
"Jiverlasling Cjospel," and that relying in faith
upon the promises ot that liospel, they earn
estly supplicate a perpetual continuance of
these blessings to all the people of this State
and this nation.

The Constitutional Convention has agreed
upon the following language, in regard to the
taking of private property for public uses:

man's property shall be taken by law without
just compensation ; nor except in case of the
otate, without such compensation jirst assess

How to treat Lard. The frying of lard
is an important branch of economy, requiring
a little care and some direct information. Wa
ter, be it remembered, should never be made
use of in this process, as it cooks the fat and
makes it liable to become speedily rancid.
Put a lump of fat into a pot, and then sland
it alone side of the fire ; gathering around it
a few embers: let a little of the fat fry out af
ter which put the fat over the fire ; with such
precaution there is no danger of the lard's
scorching, and no need of water, but the lard
when it is cold will be found quite firm and
solid ; which will not be the case if water is
made use of in frying out
As it is now evident that there will be de
ficiency in the revenues of the country, it be
comes us to inquire what means jhe Locofoco
Congress will take to meet this deficiency, and
keep the machinery of government in motion.
The answer to this is already furnished in the
November of the Democratic Review, in the
following laconic style:
"The principles of political economy nre
now well settled, and they show that direct
taxes upon accumulated property, are those
only which should be levied in a free country."
There it is,flatfooted. There is on mistaking
the meaning of that. So prepare for the tax
gatherer, and you farmers. Your property
cannot be concealed, and you will have to foot
the bill. At present, you buy few dutiable
goods, and feel not the weight of tho General
Government. That is now borne by the cap
italist, whose wives and daughters buy their
thousands yearly of revenue-paying goods.
But under the proposed system, their money
will be impalpable to taxation, and their share
of the government expenses will be borne by
those whose misfortune it will be to hold pro
perty that cannot be concealed by fraud nnd
false representations. There is a good time
coming, if we ever live to see it.
The Whig Party and the Union.
We regard the Whig party ns the real Uni
on party. The Whi g of the South have al
ways been on the side of the Union, wherev
er it has been assailed. They are at this mo
ment fighting the disunionists in Georgia nnd
elsewhere. The whig party is the conserva
tive party, and to preserve the integrity of the
Union, is the highest, as it is the holiest con
servatism. The whig party has ever been op
posed to the extension of our boundary limits,
from which extension has arisen much of this
excitement about slavery. The hig party
is for River and Harbor improvements, nnd
for encouraging and protecting the labor of
this country, and giving it employment nnd
adequate reward. Every man, therefore, who
is for union, and makes that question para
mount to all others, should at once array him
self on the side of the Great conservative
Whig party, Boston Atlas.

From Smxta Fe and the Salt Lake, mails
have reached Independence, Missouri. An
occasional skirmish, between the troops and
the maurading Indians, took place in Santa Fe.
The Indians on the plains were friendly. Ev
ery thing was very high. From an Apache
prisoner it was learned that Flourny's party,
were murdered by the Indians. He stated
that the party fought desperately, killing a
great many Indihns; and, when overpowered,
they broke their guns and pistols over the wagon-wheels,
and poured their powder in the
sand, rather than let them fall into the hands
of the Indians. The emigrants and traders
were getting along well.
The Philadelphia Bulletin, in an article en
titled, "The True View of Womanhood," thus
discourses : "Thre is no inferiority, as a whole
in either's sax. Each differs from its opposite,
man from woman, as woman from man : but
in this very difference consists, when they are
in marriage the harmony of existence. As the
deep bass of the one joined to the birdlike
treble of the other, constitutes the highest
kind of music, so man and woman, by sweet
est concert move on in a heavenly harmony,
when both arc true to themselves and the real
duties of life."
India War in Arkansas. The Choctaw
Intelligencer says war has broken out be
tween the Tonkeway and Wichetaws. The
Tonkeways are cannibals and have roasted
and eaten one of their antagonists. A battle
occured on the 29th Semptember on or near
a small streem called Rush Creek, on the road
from Washita to Fort Arbuckle. A Caddo
Chief, states that the Wichetaws had killed a
Tonkeway Indian, which was the occassion of

A gentleman, speaking yesterday of a cer
tain morose attrabilous character, not overbur
dened with wealth, remarked that what he
lacked in ready money, he possessed in acri
money. Happiness results from the occupation of
time usefully or agreeably, When persons
are actively engaged in their several callings
and professions, lime is usefully employed,
conducing to respectability, honor or profit
never failing sources of self-satisfaction. They
who have no regular business or profession,
resort to the expedient of beguiling their hours
by some pursuit or amusement that shall sup
ply the place of business. Their endeavors is
io fill up time agreeably. Thus the country
gentleman devotes himself to the sports of the
field, making dogs and horses his principle oc
cupation, while the town man of fortune fills
up his evening hours in frequenting theatres,
card parties, rouls and masquerades. These
modes however, of employing time are by no
means the most eligible ; they are not produc
tive of that genuine self satisfaction which re
sults from pursuits of a more tranquil descrip
tion; such as reading music, music, painting

Mr. Heplevin, whose aerial career has been

a description of the suffeiings of the three wo

How much divine teaching does the soul
need, before it can look on the trials of life in
their true light! God can be the giver of
nought but good : for those events which
cause us suffering, and what we misname ad
versities, are blessings as they come from Him.
We pervert them, make them adversities,
when we do not use them rightly. But take
a still deeper view : faith in the justice ns well
as the love of God, tells he would never place
his children in any circumstances for which
they might not have been prepared, had they
been faithful to the previous teachings of His
Providence. Thus regarded, prosperity is a
preparation for adversity, nnd adversity for
prosperity ; health for sicknes, and sickness
for health ; and all arc. blessings to the chris
tian. Mr. Jenkins has discovered that the bill
which recently passed Congress in regard to
Oregon provides that all white male citizens
of the United States, or persons who shall

ins, desires to know if Mr. Barnum's negro,

Character. We, may judge-of a mnn's
character by what he ' loves what pleases
him. If a person manifest delight in low and
sordid objects the vulgar songs nnd debas
ing language in the misfortune of his fellows
or cruelty to animals, we may at once deter
mine the complexion of hjs character. On
the contrary, if be loves purity, modesty, truth
if virtuous pursuits engage his heart and
draw out his affections we are satisfied that
he is an upright man.
