4Well, Johnny, said Mr. Smith, ']
must sayyou have told your adventure
well and intelligibly; but you must not
suppose now that jackals live always
upon children: It is not often that
they venture into the habitation of mar
to seize a living infant. A jackal is a
great coward, and generally prowls
about at night. Solitary 'ackals are
constantly seen; but in the dark nights
as you know, they go in packs, and
their cry is dismal. Much as we dis
like these animals, they have their uses
in creation. The jackal and the vul
ture may be reckoned the chief scaveng
ers of our Indian clime; but for their vo
racious and unfastidious appetite, many
a dead carcase would remain, giving
out unwholesome evaporations, an
make this land of fever and cholera
more unhealthy than it already is.

low on the thick branches and trunks c

jackal has frequently an opportunity c
ateahing a jack, or rather of- sharing

Season o aamity.
Providence, for wise canses, afflicts us s
a nation and apeople. We doznot see its aim,
but its object is to chasten us, to subdue pride,
to promote humility, to teach us our depend.
-ance on Him whose all seeing eve takes ii
every thing at a glance. Great calamities
have afflicted us of late : St. Louis has been
seriously injured by a large fire, which in ita
devastating course has laid in ruins the buui.
ness portion of that rizing city. A raging firn
has destroyed the towns of Melwaukie and
of Watertown, (in the State of New York;)
scenes of riot and bloodshed mark the pecu.
liar institutions of the North; a noble steamei
plying on the majestic Hudson, from the me.
tropolis of the union, the Empire, haW sunk,
destroying many lives; the mighty Missisaip.
pi has overflowed its borders and threaten
to entirely submerge the city of New Orleans;
drought succeeds drought, where rain is re.
quired and rain follows rain where sun-shine
is needed, and "the pestilence that walketti
in darkness"-the cholera, spreads itself it
every direction. These are admonitions
which should induce us to reflect upon oui
dependence on Him, who "killeth and. mak,
eth alive," that we should look to the inwar
monitor for consolation, that we should feel
what poor creatures we are, that we should
pray for grateful and contrite hearts, and fi
that divine hope and protection which car
carry us through every calamity harmless.
As a nation, too, we have our troubles; we
are not, it is true, at war with any foreig
power, but our own institutions are in d.ngei
-political intrigue and dark fanaticism an
aiming their shafts against the very existenct
of our union and arraying one section of the
counry against another. Our own national
family begining to be divided, and, like fami.
ly quarrels, bitterness and defiance visit oui
social hearths. These are the calamitiei
which should awaken reason and, rouse the
r energies of the good against the machinaton
of the wicked. Let us hope still for good re.
suits; let us pray for them, let us keep united
as a people be tolerant towards each othei
and be ever submissive to the will of that
divine providence which has hitherto blessec
f and sustained us as a free and happy nation

on0l to favor the project. It has. been
urgd by sucathernand western presses that
to be independent of the North and to put an
end the conlitued assaults on the-South, it
wiuld 'e wirest to establ'h a general non
intercourso between the Norih and the South
and, in tiis mode, peaceably resent tho con
tinued injuries, which the South is sufiering
frogn the*:..irterference. On reflection we
should regret tosee such a plan either advo.
cated or adopted--it would be in efiect a
seperation of the Union, whereas we, of. the
South, are also citizens of the North, although
our rights are frequently disputed and viola
ted by our fellow.citizens of thiat section of
the Republic. But we would rejoice to see
the South no longer'tributary to any section
of the. union, but, thriving ourselves on our
own resources, shaking of the apathy, indo.
lence and indifference, for which some choose
to call us remarkable, use the elements of
wealth, which we possess in abundance, as
the means of independence, In all objects of
domestic consumption and productive labor,
not direct against the North, but in sustain.
ing, fostering, and protecting our own resour
ces, and, if in the result, the North shall feel
that they have lost a profitable customer,
we shall have found one. While we con
tinue to be dependent on North for every
thing, and the North believes we cannot ex:
ist without her, we become her slaves and
submissive followers; they gives us the law
and tell us how far we shall goin sustaining
our own rights. Let us shake off this indo
lence, tis aversionto labor-to the mechanic
arts-let our factories, of.every nature, shew
our. determination to be independent; our
rail roads, our plank roads, our canals, uniting
one section of the South with another. Let
steam, water, and other motive power,
the mill, the adze, the saw, the ship-yard,
the tan-pit, the forge, the hammer and the an
vil, be heard and seen in every direction.
The policy of not confining capital to agricul
tural pursuits, but diffusing it among other
useful and profitable objects, cannot be doub.
ed. It is hazardous to be entirely depend
ent upon one branch of industry-for if there
is a blight, a drought, a depressed market or
any single calamity, wE are the sufferers, for
we have nothing else to fall back upon.
