A Scoundrel at JLarcc.
A man calling himself Lynian Sturges,
was employed by me some three months
ago, as an assistant farmer. He contin
ued in my employ until Saturday, the
22nd ult. On the succeeding night he
took his departure for parts unknown,
taking with him all his moveables, consist
ing of a wife, four children and some
household goods of very little-value. On
it i i i . . t
ascertaining tnat ne naa started on
a journey, that must necessarily be at
tended with considerable expense,I could
not imagine how he would contrive to pay
his way, knowing as I did, that he was in
very destitute circumstances. In less
than twenty-four hours after he left, the
mystery was solved. It then came out
that he had been making preparations for
this trip, for several days. During the
last week that he was in my employ he
was several times in the village of Hack
ettstown, and at three several times called
on three diffeicnt individuals in the place
and from two of them borrowed five dol
lars, and from the third two dollars
twelve dollars from the three men. This
money he obtained by telling the lender

or two after he obtained four dollars more
from two other individuals in the same
place, by representing to them that I had
sent him to that place with a heavy load
ed wagon, that the wagon had broken
down, and if they would lend him a few
dollars to pay for repairs that I would re
pay it at the first opportunity. By stories
of this kind he obtained sixteen dollars,
and then made his exit as above stated,
taking with him one of my grain sacks,
kich, as we shall see, answered him an
excellent purpose. When he got to Do
ver he went to an acquaintance of mine,
tflio resides there, and stated to him that

'Syria has been ceded to M. Rothschild
for five hundred millions of francos. It
is not yet known whether he asumes the
title of King or Pacha; it is certain that
he proposes to rebuild Jerusalem and the
Temple of Solomon; there are to be chapels
for all religion, a line of steamers from
Beyrout to Marseilles, and a railway from
Alexandria to Constantinople. The new
States of M. Rothschild abound in iron
ore and forests of valuable timber. It is
said that M. Rothschild will appeal to his
co-religionists to return to the land of their
fathers, to possess the tents of Abraham
Tiif Crops. The last few weeks of
very fine growing weather, says the Dela

new guise on the whole face of nature.
Indeed, even from the most unfavored
portions of our own State, as well as those
of other States, the word comes, that the
crops of grain, grass and fruit, have won

this brief period. So auspicious, on the

that the hopes of the husbandman, so

Extracts of letters from Judge Story, Chan-

Cammudge, April 24, 18-14
I have read the prospectus with great pleas
ure: and entirely approve the plan II it can
only obtain the public patronage long enough,
and large enough, and securely enougn, to
attain its true ends, it will contribute in an
eminent degree to give a healthy tone, not
only to our literature, but to public opinion.
It will enable us to possess, in a moderate
compass, a select libraty of the best produc-.
lions ol the age. It will do more: it will re
deem our peiiodical literature from the re
proach of being devoted to light and super
ficial reading, lo transitory speculations, to
sickly and ephemeral sentimentalities, and
false and extravagant sketches of life and
character, JOSEPH STORY.
New York, 7th May, 1814.
1 approve very much of the plan of the
" Living Age;" and if it be conducted with
the intelligence, spirit and taste that the
prospectus indicates, (of which I have no
reason to doubt,) it will be one of the most
instructive and popular periodicals of the
day. JAMES KENT.
Washington, 27 Dec. 1815.
In all the I'eriodcal Journals devoted to
literature and science which abound in Eu
rope and in this country, this has appeared
! tlie nvnosition onlv of the current literature
to ma the most usetul. it contains indeed
.. , . J ..... ?.
of the English language, but this by its im
mense extent and comprehension, includes a
portraiture of the human mind in the utmost
expansion of the present age.
This work is conducted in the spirit of
Lutel's Museum of r oreign Literature,(which
was favorably received by the public for
twenty years,) but as it is twice as large, and
: appears so often, we not only give spirit and
lreshness to it by many tniiins winch were
excluded by a month's dolay.but while thus
extending our scope and gathering a greater
and more attractive variety, are able so to
increase the solid and substantial part of our
literary, historical, and politcal harvest, as
fully to satisfy the wants of the American
The elaborate and stately Essays oflhe
Edinburg Quarterly, and other Reviews; and
Blackwood's noble criticisms on Poetry, his
keen political Commentaries, highly wrought
Tales, and vivid descriptions of rural and
mountain scenery; and the contributions to
Literature, History, and Common Life, by
the sagacious Spoctator, the sparkling Ex
aminer, the Judicious Athenesnum, the busy
and industrious Literary Gazcelte, the sensi
ble and comprehensive Britannia, the sober
and respectable Christian Observer; these
are intermixed with the Military and Naval
reminiscences oflhe United Service, and with
the best articles of the Dublin University,
New Monthly, Eraser's, TaWs, AinsworMs
Hood's, & Sporting Magazines, and of Cham
bers'1 admirable Journal. We do not consid
er it beneath our dignity to borrow wit and
wisdom from Punch ; and, when we think it
good enough, make use of the thunder of The
Times. We shall increase our variety by im
portations from the continent of Europe, and
from the new growth of the Britisn colonies.
The steamship has brought Europe, Asia,
and Africa into our neighborhood and will
greatly multiply our connections, as Mer
chants, Travellers, and Politicians, with all
parts ol the world so that much more than
erer it now becomes every intelligem Amer
ican to ue inlormed of the condition and
changes of foreign countries. And this not
only because of their nearer connection with
ourselvestbut because the nations seem to be
hastening, through a rapid process of change,
to some new state of things, which the merely
political prophet cannot compute 01 forsee.
Geographical Discoveries, the progress of
colonization, jwmcn is extending over the
whole world,) and Yoyages and Travels, will
bo favorite matter for our selections; and, in
general, we shall systematically and very
Jully acquaint our readers with the great de
partment of Foreign affairs, without entirely
neglecting our own.
While we aspire to make the Living Age
desirable to all wbo wish to keep themselves
informed of the rapid progress oC the
mento Statesmen, Divines, Lawyers, and
Physicians to men of businhss and men of
leisure it is still a stronger object to make
it attractive and useful to their Wives and
Children. We believe that we can thus do
some good in our day and generation ; and
hope to make the work indispensable in ev
ery well-informed family. We say indispen
sable, because in this day of cheap literature
it is not possible to guard against the influx
of what is bad taste and vicious in morals,
in any other way than by furnishing a suffi
cient supply ol" a healthy character Tho
mental and moral appetite must be gratified.
We hope that, by 'winnowinsr the wheat
from the chaff,' by providing abundantly for
me immagination, anu oy a large collection
of Biography, Yoyages, Travels, History,
and more solid matter, we may produce a
work which shall be popular, while at tho
asme time it will aspire to raise the stand
ard of public taste.
