Our Nolile Scott.
AIR" Our Native Land:'
Our noble Scott ; our gallant Scott;
Oh, tell me where, in North or South,
Can that great name be e're forgot,
From Maine to Mississippi's mouth!
Though other men our praises claim,
As well beloved in hall and cot
We find no fault, we will not blame,
But yet, oh yet they're not our Scott.
The warrior brave the partriot just
The bitter foe to tyrant's plot
The noble soul we all can trust,
'Tis him we love Our Noble Scott.
He knows no South he knows no Norlh-
But loves his country as a whole,
Then let the ringing words go forth,
From sea to sea, from pole to pole,
Proclaiming loud, how well we know,
With hearts sincere, with visions keen,
The debt of gratitude wc owe
To him who our Defender's been.
Then chout it forth We love our land
We love the men who for it fought;
True Whigs, united, hand to hand,
We all revere our gallant Scott.
Yes, while the lamp holds out to burn,
While mem'ry lasts, while reason's left,
While, like our sires, we tyrants spurn,
And are of freedom not berefit
When'er we hear his glorious name,
Who lived but for his country's fame,
Our souls will burn our spirits yearn
True to the land we love and claim.
The high, the low in weal or wo
By whom our Union's not forgot
Will find their hearts with pleasure glow
At mention of our noble Scott.

Woman A Comparison.
The National Intelligencer is publishing
a series of letters from a citizen of Wash
ington, who is travelling in the Old World.
In his last letter he thus compares the
women there with those of his own coun
try. In my rambles about the village of
Baalbek, I was struck with the beauty of
the children, and the extreme youthful
ness of some of the Arab mothers. I saw
several young females, not more than
twelve or fourteen years of age, with ba
bies in their arms, evidently their own ;
and I was told that this is quite common
throughout Syria. Many of the women
are very beautiful much more so, I think,
than either the Circassian or the Turkish
women. It was quite enchanting to see
their fine .complexions, dark eyebrows,
and flashing eyes; and for regularity and
delicacy of features, I have seldom seen
them equalled, except in other parts of
Syria. In Nazareth I saw some of the
best formed and most beautiful women I
have ever seen in any country I believe
it is noted as much for the beauty of its
female population, among tourists, as for
its historical interest. But at no place
did I see what I really thought approach-
ed the pertection ot beauty m so high a
degree as in Bethlehe m. The women of I

and eyebrows, and such delicate little
hands and feet. Not that I mean to say

General Scott 38 Years Ago.
In looking over the pages of the jthia
lectic Magazine, published in 1814, we
there found a short biographical sketch of
Winfield Scott, and thought it might not
be uninteresting to extract from it at this
time, as the claims of Gen. Scott arc now
being set forth by his friends for the Pres
idency. From the description of the battle of
Bridgewater, we make the following ex
tract; and as we quote from history, this
account of the noble daring of Scott in
the cause of his country will at least have
the merit of truth, and cannot be called
in question as a spurious political coinage
to aid his election to the Presidency:
'About the time at which Gen. Brown
says he saw Scott for the last time, Gen.
Scott had, at the head of his column,
twice charged the enemy. He had,
through the whole action, exposed his per
son in the most dauntless manner. He
was finnally disabled by a musket ball'
thro' his right shoulder, which he receiv
ed about half-past ten, just before the
final close of the action. He had been
wounded two hours before, in the left side,
had lost two horses, killed under him, and
his aid, Lieut. Worth, and his brigade
major, Smith, had been wounded by his
side. The total loss of his brigade was
490 in killed and wounded out of 620,in
cluding in this number more than thirty
officers. Dunnp: this engagement the

such as to render this complfment appro
priate. A gentleman from Virginia, to
whom he was personally known, replied,
(as is the fact) that beside possessing the
( general information of a well educated
man, he was remarkable for his accurate

literature. The proposal was instantly

It is unnecessary to add that tho build

timed, was worthy of a college which can
boast of numbering in the long list of her
sons many of the most brilliant and dis

walk of public life.
T.Uiii- it Coolly
The Detroit Advertiser tells a capital
story of an easy, good natured old Ver
mont farmer, who never suffered troubles
to perplex or worry him, and found a
" silver lining in the darkest clouds."
The anecdote is quite refreshing in this
hot weather, and so commending its phi
losophy to all who are plagued with world
ly vexations, we copy it :
One day, while the black tongue pre
vailed in that State, one of his men came,
in, bringing the news that one of his oxen
was dead.
" Is he ?" said the old man, " well, he
always was a cuss. Take his hide off,
and carry it down to Fletcher's, it will
bring the cash."
An hour or so afterwards, the man
came back with the news that "Liueback"
and his mate were both dead.
" Are they?" said the old man, "v,-.-" I
took them ofB to save a bau debt
that I never expected to get. It's lucky
it an't the brindles. Take the hides
down to Fletcher's ; they will bring the
cash."
After the lapse of another hour, the
man came back to tell him that the nigh
brindle was dead.
" Is he ?" said the old man ; " well, ho
was a very old ox. Take his hide off and
take it down to Fletcher's: it's worth cash
and will bring more than any two of the
others."
Hereupon, his wife, who was a very
pious soul, taking upon herself the office
of Eliphaz, reprimanded her husband ve
ry severely, and asked him if he was not
aware that his loss was a judgment of
heaven for his wickedness.
" Is it V said the old fellow. Well, if
tfiey xcill take the judgment in cattle, it is
ilie easiest xoay to pay it."
Kecipe for z Sores.
A writer in the last number of the Gen
esee Farmer, who signs himself "E. R."
ana dates at Centre Lisle, New-York,
gives us the following recipe for curing
sores:
Take two and a half drachms of blue
vitriol, four draohms of alum, and six
drachms of loaf sugar; or, we willsay,bluo
vitriol the size of a walnut, alum a size
larger, and sus;ar the size of a hen's egg.
Pulverize and turn into a glass bottle.
Add one pint of good vinegar, and one
table-spoonful of honey. Cork, and shake
the mixture three or four times a day;
and when dissolved, it is fit for use.
This wash will remove film from the
horses's eyes; will cure king's evil and
most kinds of fever sores; will destory
proud flesh, and cause the sore to heal.
It is great for hoof-rot, in sheep, and may
be applied to any sore with safety. Tho
sore should be kept clean, and washed

A Model Wife.
There is a woman in Indiana on the
Wabash river, who takes it into her hoad
and sometimes practices, (while her old
man has gone to town,) plowing, nursing
and fishing, all at once. She first yokes
an ox and her cow to the plow then puts
her twin babies into the corn basket and
suspends it on a tree then takes the bell
of the cow and attaching it to the end of
her fishing pole, which is stuck in the
ground at the water's edge; she then com
mences her plowing around the field, at
every revolution sho gives the aarial cradle
a send, which lasts until she gets round
again, at the same time keeping her ears
open, so that when any rash member Qf

cear of it, for under her arranguments the
calamity is announced by tho ringing of
the bell.
