Perchance in that pure holy cloud,

And sadly look on earth's dull breast,
Mourning that thou elill must stay
A prisoner in thy houso of clay

Prcvioua to the death of Ferdinand VII, the lute
King, there existed a law, to the effect, that female
heirs of the royal family should be debarred the
right of inheritance to the throne, Much law, the
Irx Htlica, waa introduced s.ime centuries back from
France, hy the then reigning monarch, with the ap
probation of the Cortci. Prcvioua to if -asage,
Spanish chivalry had bowed to hma'e authority
from the throne. The lite King, having no issue
by hia first wife, but a girl by hia second, was of
rj)ton that the same authority which had fiM ad
.initM and then debarred to females the right to the
4hronr,,could again he judiciously invoked lo re
plum the la.Uea in their rank, as Queens, and thus
secure the sovereign power lo his daughter, the
tiicaeut O.ueoti UM JI. Without the paa age of
such law, his Irotbec, Doit Cblx, would auccced

Christina. The present rebellion, however ha a

repent stinging the friend which warmed il into

a republican tone, in 1 637, by aecuring to the itt

A few dnys sinco we visited the miguilicent An

of the staka. In fn-l, nothing seems lo be wauling

of this kind, that can be found in this or probably

and are located at the eastern end of that portion of
Ihe D.inville and Pnttaville railroad, leading from
IShamokin to Nunhury. These furnace are a'ao
of the lurgest class, and will lie put in operation
next Spring. A valuable bed of iron ore has been
discov, rod underlying the c mI stinti. Thus these
furiiuccs can be supplied with cord and iron ore
from the pi's mouth. These are important advan

The Keystone in enumerating the democratic

'i'he great m, ral refo in winch is now, and has
lieen for some years in p. ogress in the? row, as
well as the old world, his nr eslcd tinirersol at ten-
I on. Ti e subject has Ik-coiiic one of increased ev-
i itement in our town, fr Ihe r. eent presence of
the Rev. Mr. Hunf, the c Icbrved lecturer on tern
m ranee, among our uoy eiiiien. Their y m
utbi.ahave beeu wrought opto the highest pitch
of moral exci emcni.aud the. r zeal in the c.ue ex
hibited in ihe formation of a large Temperance No
ddy, composed of fciml.a, ns will as ol those of
Ihe rougher sex. All this is very well, but the
friends of the cause ought to be careful not lo at
Umt to promote it by intemjsfrate ineana. Intern
ierance, in our nomenclature, ia not confined to Ihe
intemperate use of ardent spirirs, but is proierly ap
plied to excess in any thing. Thus the excitement
aud ardent tflort of the friends of temperance may
be vary intemperate, and when earned to extremes
may degcneiate into folly and extravagance. J
I have leen led to these remark by an incident
which lately occurred in my domestic circle. I am
a firm believer in the truth of the old feudal max
im, that every man's house ia hi cas le; that in it
he is lord aramnunt, nnd neither the public, nor
any part of it, forming a cicty, have any r'ght to
enter, or interfere with hi dome s:ic arrangement.

in a moat devout tins, " I have j lined the 'i'enipe
ranee ft.n i ty and I dain't use brandy or they wnu'd
turn me out of tho Society." " What I" I exclaimed,
"make mince-pia without brandy! Who evor

of the virtues of the forbidden fruit would not how

pointment wilh the pnticnro and good-humor of a
cheated and half fc;.s:cd man.
This circumstance has presented to mind sere nl
gr.ivr question, upon the decision of which greatly
depend the futuie gnstronomical enjoyment of cor
niverous m irinli and the pence and barmonv of
our homes. la it true thai the success of tho t( m
pemnre leformation dep. ndi upon such inflexible
pr.ncip'es and rigid rub s a lo interfere with the cu
linary department of ihe kitchen and entirely over
turn the long established and most approved art of
cookery 1 Ai d is the obligation which the society
imposes upon it members superior to thu obliga

Ca .not tho gian.l reform be acco'iipli hed with
out an exterminating war upon ihe well approved
and old-f ishione.l mince-pie t These, I repent, are
serious questions, and fu'l of interest. I disi.e lo
direct puldic attention to them, and I trust that the
Teniierance Society, duly impressed with their im
portance, will rive them it calm and deliberate
consideration at ita next meeting, and let ua know
whether christian charily or brotherly love sanc
tions any interference with the social relations of
life, which may eventually turn the festive circle
into a scene of dome-tic strife and contention.
I rejoice at the successful progress of the great
reformation, but I deprecate Ihe trifling spirit of in
novation, s rife at the present day, which, in tho
ardor of undue zeal, a. t down harmless and inno
cent enjoyment in the ca'alogue of fo bidden sins.
