ThoTollowincr sons is capital.
Let it po the-
rounds of the Whig press.
From the Albany Evening Journal,
Hurrah for ihe father of all the green West,
r or ine uucKoye who ioiiows me piougu :
Thefoeman in terror his valor confest,
Ahd we'll honor the conqueror now.
His country assailed in the darkest of days,
' To her rescue impatient he flew ;
The war whoop's fell blast, and the rifle's red blaze,
But awaken'd Old Tippecanoe.
.OerMnumee's dark waters,along with brave Wayne
Green laurels he gleaned with his sword ;
But when peace on the country came smiling again,
His steel to the scabbard restored.
But wise in the Council, as brave in the Feld,
His country still asked for his aid ;
And the Birth of Young Empires his wisdom re
vealed, The Sage and the Statesman displayed.
But the red torch of war, the tomahawk's gleam,
To the battle again called the true ;
And there where the stars and the stripes brightly
Rushed the Hero of Tippecanoe.
Now hark! from the far frozen wilds .of the North,
What battle shouts burthen the gale ,-.:
The hosts of Old England ride gallantly forth,
And Captive und Conquered bewail.
His"country recalls the bold Chieftain she-loves,
The sword of " Old Tip" she leclaims ;
And victory heralds wherever he moves,
The path of the Hero of Thames !
Hurrah for the Hero of Tippecanoe .
' The Parmer who ploughs at North Bend !
?A Soldier so brave and a Patriot so true.
Will find in each freeman a friend.
Huna for the Log Cabin Chief of our choice !
For the Old Indian Fighter, hurra !
Hurra ! and from mountain to valley the voice
-Of the People re-echoes hurra !
Then come to the ballot box boys, come along,
He never lost battle for you ;
-Let us down with oppression and tyranny's throng,
And up with Old Tippecanoe. S. J. B.
Birds, Caaker Worms.
I see it stated in your paper of Fri
daj', that the probable reason why the
canker worm commits small ravages
in Floh,is found in the care withw-hich
the birds are protected. I was re-minded
of a remark in Peabody's Life of
" He enters into a deliberate cal
culation of the exact value of the ser
vices of the red-winged black-bird,
which certainly bears no good repu
tation on the farm, showing that- al
lowing a single bird fifty insects a
day, which wouldbe a short allowance,
a single pair Would consume 12.000
in four months, and if there are a mil
lion pairs of these birds in the United
States.the amount of insects islessby
twelve thousand millions, than if the
red-wing- were terminated." Let anv
person during the brooding season of
roooins or omer Dims, rise oy oreaK
of day and count the number of times
the old ones return in one hour, with
-worms and insects, or, if he can, let
him count through the dav. and the
number wiliTe found to be almost in-!
credible. The practice of killing birds
for mere amusement is not merely in
dicative of cruelty and want of feeling,
but is exceedingly detrimental fo' the
interests of the community.
And, now that I am upon the sub
ject of insects and worms, let me add
that there is a very unreasonable pre
judice against toads, They are ex
ceedingly valuable in gardens and
otherplaces, inconsequence of the ex
terminating warfare they are constant
ly wasmg ajjainst bugrs and worms.
Any person who has them in his gar
den has a treasure there ; and if he
will watch them closely, he .will find
them accomplishing more in. the way
of preserving his. squash anjd cucum- i
ber. vines and other vegetables" than5
he 'does with all his troughs of liquid.
A stir-up. A gentleman in a neigh
boring town,remarkable for his shrewd
. ness. had made repeated requests to
the selectmen, that a very bad place
in the road near his house might be
repaired, of which, however, they took
no notice. One winter evening it
happened that as two of -the selectmen
were passing, their carriage broke
through the ice. The gentleman
came to the door, and,- observed the
men up to their knees, in snow and
water,, endeavoring to extricate their
carriage, thus accosted Them " Ah !

JL HE Ladies' Companion, established in Mi,
1834 a popular and highly esteemed magazine of
General Literature and the Fine Arts; einbuh.3h
with gorgeous and costly engravings on steel, a.id.
the Quarterly fashions ; and also with Fashiona
ble and popular Music, arranged for the Piano
Forte, and Guitar.
Since the publication of the number fCr'-Novem-ber,
the demand for the Ladies' Companion tins,
been unprecedented and beyond the most sanguine
anticipations. At the commencement of the vol
ume an additional number of copies wer printed,,
which was considered at the time adequate to sa
tisfy all the orders which might'b'e received, and
leave a considerable number on hand for subse
quent calls. The publisher is more than gratified
m stating that the whole of an edition of six thou
sandfive hundred copies, was completely exhaus
ted before the issuing of the third number of the
volume; and, consequently, he was compelled to
reprint a second edition of two thousand copies,
making the circulation of the Ladies' Companio r.
eight thousand five hundred, at the termination of
the tenth volume. In consequence of this nre;.t
and unparalleled increase of new subscribers, he
has determined to commence the new volume for
the ensuing year with thirteen thousand: horing
that he will thus be enabled to supply all the de
mands for the Ladies' Companion, as well as those
disappointed in commencing with the tenth vol
ume. Ihe proprietor .-.els grateiul tvr that en
couragement which has keen so lavishly bestowed
upon his magazine, and at the same time he begs
to assure the readers of the Ladies' Companion,
that it is determinedresolution to meet it with a
correspondinfir liberality to merit its continuance.
The work appears in beautiful new type, printed
on the finest paper ; smoothly pressed, and neatly
stitched in a handsome cover,
The Ladies' Companion contains a lareer quan
tity of reading than any other magazine issuC ifc
in this country, and its subscription juice is onTy"
three dollars a year, while the great ccmbinatu n
of talent secured for the ccming year will render
it unequalled by any other periodical.
Svlenaid Steel .n ravines, prepared bv Mr. A.
Dick, ornament the work one of which accompa
nies each number. These plates arc entirely new,
and are engraved at a heavy expense by one ol the
best arstists in America, expressly for the maga
zine. The designs are selected with a view of in
teresting the general reader, and enhancing the
value of the work, for, its superior juctoral embel-
hments. It 13 with pnde the proprietor announ
ces that the Ladies' Companion is the onlj' maga

plates appear regularly. lhose accompanyitig

mentioned, a correct plate of the Quarterly Fash
ions ior Ladies, will appear in the June, .Septem
ber, December, and March numbers, independent
of the usual embellishment. It is the detennina- -tion
of the . proprietor, that these fashion plate

The Musical Department of the LadiesCona
nion has ever commanded a large sharefbf atten
tion, and has been looked upon with no little in
terest by its readers, and more especially' the La
dies, whom the publisher is anxious to please. . It
will continue to be a subject of more than.usrual
care to him, and to the Professor under whose - su
pervision it is placed, to make that portion of-the
magazine deserving of the countenance of every
lover of music.
Tae Work in General. Of every department art
equally careful supervision will be strictly exer
cised by the Editors, and all appropriate expandi
tures will be liberally bestowed, as it is the- de
sign of the publisher, with the aid of his contribu
tors and the advice of his friends to make tho-La-dies
Companion distinguished for the beauty and
accuracy of its typography, the variety and .high
tone of its literary articles, the quality and value
of its music, and the unequal splendorof its pic
toral embellishments, and the accuracy of its quar
terly fashions. The proprietor pledges himse'lf to
use all honorable means to maintain the superiori
ty which the Ladies Companion has obtained.
For five years he has steadily pursued a course or
improvement, and he flatters himself that his pre
sent facilities are such as to give the work eminent
advantages over aU'other publications.
From the foregoing it will be perceived that xha
Ladies' Companion embraces every department
within the rango of Belles-Lettres and tha-Fino
Arts : and no exertions or expense will be deemed
too great to render the work equal to any other
extant. The flattering and general testimonials
nf nearly every contemporary journal in the United
States, and in fact, many on the other side- of the
Atlantic, have strongly asserted the undeniablo
claims of the Ladies' Companion to the support of
the public generally. There is no work tht gives
its readers such a great return for their money.
