THE EARLY DEAD. ...by florcs u. elyuptox.
They grow not old, the loved who perish 3'oung;
They are for ever beautiful; the years,
The blight of sorrow, and the waste of grief,
The canker of afllic' ion, and the cares
That creep on our decrepitude, ma' wreak
On us their ravages, until, o'erspent,
The weary frame drops stiffened to the du&!;
But they who, in the blossom of their years,
Depart in their glory, and go down
Jn the full flush of beauty to the grave,
Gan never know the slow decline of age:
Jthaih no power upon them; but, afar,
Transplanted to the Paradise of Faith,
And made immortal in their innocence,
Their purity and loveliness, the bloom,
Rare as the fruits of famed Hespcrid,
Beyond the changes and the wrath of Time.
They grow not old, the loved who perish young:
Though in the valleys green where lie their forms
At sleep among the daisies, the heaped mound
Sink level with the surface of the plain.
And the while stone, the kindred memorial
Of mourning love for a departed love,
Gather upon its face the mould of years;
E'en their resting place the trackless vind3
May seek, but vainly; and the plough-boy turn
With the bright share the turf above their rest,
Unconscious, as' he sings his roundelay,
Of forms than his more fair that sleep below
Still, in our hearts they hold remembrance,
And in our dreams do they rerisit us;
And through the golden glory of the Past,
Like pictures mellowed by the glaze of age,
The patterns of their beauty still appear
More precious as they seem to gather grace,
More beautiful as wc decaj-; as we grow old,
More dearly loved for memories Ihey bring.
I nowbethinkmcofagentle oue,
So puic she might be canonized a Saint,
Who came to us as an exceeding joy,
"Who left us in a most exceeding grief.
She was our lily; and the angels loved it,
"Who did divide with us a tender charge
Until it budded; and we hoped to see
The beauty of its blosson. But, one day
In the deep glory of a flowering May,
The brighter immortals from the Hills of Bliss
Came down into the garden of our love;
And so did they prefer that perfect bud,
And so enamored were they of iU grace,
And so they valued it above all others.
That they did breathe upon it, and our lily
Became, henceforth, immortal in its bloom.

SPECIAL COBKESI'OXOEXCE OF TUE NEW YORK HERALD.
"Wasiiixgtox, April 2G. To-morrow, it is under
stood, is to be devoted by tiie cabinet to the consid
eration of the foreign appointments. The applicants
have waited with commendable patience, and al-.
though sufficiently numerous to form a considera
ble army, no emeule has taken place. It is right,
therefore, that their good conduct should be re
warded by a speedy adjustment of their claims. As
to who will be appointed it is impossible to do more
than guess, for no inkling has yet been given by
any nuthoritive source. It is, however, known
that, as a general rule, if not indeed a universal one,
Mr. Marcy s choice will be respected. Applicants
have, for the most part, been referred to him by
the President; and when, in one instance, the ap
plicant remarked he was not on good terms with
Mr. Marcy, he was comforted with the significant
. ply, "That's unfortunate."
Instead of the number of office-seekers diminish
ing they appear to be on the increase. On Friday
the halls and staircase of the White House were
crowded with them. To-day the President threw
the door of his office open, and admitted the crowd
all at once. It was a motly assemblage, from aspi
rants to full missions down to messengerships, while
some looked as if they would be content with a
suit of old clothes.
The Republic and Union are discussing General
Pierce's foreign policy, and inflating the now really
unimportant question as to British pretensions in
Central America. There can be no doubt but what
the President, as I stated several weeks ago, re
gards the right of England, or any European pow
er, to join us in any treaty or arrangemcut with
any government on this Continent, utterly inad
missible, and that he will never sanction, under his
administrat'on, the absurd if not dangerous princi
ple contained in the Clayton-Bulwer treaty. At
the same time, he perfectly understands that Eng
land has abandoned all intention of continuing the
odious Mosquito protectorate, not only because of
the feeling it createa in this country, but because of
its unprofitableness. England, however, will en
deavor to make the subject a matter of negotiation
if possible, because it is good material to trade up
on, and if managed with ability it may yet obtain
her elsewhere substantial advantages for its empty
concession. Her wily and sagacious d:plomatists
in this way humbugged the last adrainistration
but the game is over now.
The papers are laboring under a mistake as to
the treaty lately confirmed by the Senate with one
of the Central American States. Mr. Squier made
two treaties one with the btate of .Nicaragua,
which related to the construction of a canal open
to all nations the other with the btate of San Sal
vador, which was purely of a commercial charac

WEDNESDAY MORNING, 3IAY 4, 1853.
TRIBUTE TO THE FRIEND OF THE PEOPLE.
. .Hon. Joseph K. Chandler, whig member of Con
gress from Pennsylvania, in a speech upon, the
Jlomestead. in April, 1S52, paid the following elo
quent tribute to the labors of Andrew Johnson in
behalf of the Homestead system :
"Sir, other men may wear the civic wreath which
the nation weaves for those who serve their coun
try in lofty position, or they may be graced with'
the laurels prepared for those who defend her in
the hour of peril, and their names maybe inscribed
upon the imperishable record of national glory;
while no crown shall bo woven, nor column be
reared to the humble working legislator, who pre
pared or presented the homestead bill. A con
sciousness of duty performed must be his present
remuneration, and his reward in the' future juust
be the lowly inscription ot his name with' -those
who loved the people."
The name of Andrew Johnson 13 already- in
scribed ''with those who loved the people." His
"whole public'life has been a series of labors in their
behalf. He has felt with them and acted for them.
We proudly point to his record to show what he
has done. With abilities of the first order, he has
combined untiring industry and unbending, will,
and devoted them all to the service of his country
men. Men who care little for the people who
know little of their wants and have no sympathy
with their sufferings sometimes call Andrew
JonNSON a demagogue. They do not like the whole
souled way in which he labors for the good of the
toiling masses. Such patriotism and devotion
"stink in the nostrils" of these gentlemen. They
belong to "all the decency and gentility" party,
and are ever ready to cry out "demagogue" when
areal friend of the people makes his appearance.
These men raised this cry against Andrew Jouxson
.long years ago, but it was as "the idle wind which
he regarded not." They raised it in Congress, but
could not silence his eloquent voice, or drive him
from his patriotic labors. He stood bravely against
it as the friend of the people, and the enemy of all
partial, improvident, and extravagant legislation.
He had the moral courage to defy it and do his du
ty in despite of it. It is now the people's turn to
honor him for such conduct.
By reference to the proceedings, it will be
seen that Dr. Samuel B. Moore has beeil nominated

merous friends here will be gratified to learn :
lNDiANOLAr April 19, 1853.
Dear Mahlino : In order to fulfil my long un
redeemed promise of giving you "sketches" of my
new home, I find myself seated, armed with Lord
Byron's ponderous weapon, and feeling somewhat
inspired by being in the vicinity of the consecrated
field of the Alamo, and enthused with the glowing
accounts of tiie discovery df-rich'oZcZ mines within
five days easy travel of our beautiful little Coast
City. I know of no more Jitten time or circumstan
ces to give you an account of this country, its future
prospects, destiny, &c. First As you will per
ceive, I am located in Indianola. situated ou Lavaca
Bay or rather Matagorda Bay Lavaca being on
ly an arm of that Bay. This is the entrepot for emi
grants to western Texas, being the only point at
which there' is sufficient water for steam ships to
land. Our city, although but a few years old, num
bers a population of between 1.500 and 2,000, and
is. increasing in wealth and population beyond the
most extravagant conception of the plodding deni
zens of the Stales, as we say out here in speaking of
any other of Uncle Sam's little provinces. We are
situated on a beautiful shell beach, overlooking the
Bay one side and a boundless prairie on the other,
the Bay furnishing an abundance of excellent fish,
including almost every variety: the Mackerel, the
Ponepour, Sheep's Head, Mullet, Trout, lied Fish,
Ivroker, Flounder, and the finest Oysters in the
world, all to be had for the trouble or fun of getting
them. Our prairies aflbrd an evergreen pasturage,
and cows grow spontaneous. Speaking of cows, re
minds me of an anecdote I lately heard. A fellow
who had been iu the country a year or two, con
eluded to sell out and to return to the States. On
his return he was discanting on the beauties and
advantages of the country, spoke of its being a great
stock country, his success iu stock raising, &c, said
"that he had been engaged ia- the business but a
year and had sold over two hundred head, stating
however, that his neighbors said it would have
looked better if he had have had some cows to start
upon." Joking aside though, this is certainly
a great country. We have a charter for a railroad
from this Bay to San Antonio. Stock taken and
the whole road put under contract at 27,000 per
mile, and it will be undoubtedly built in three years.
The contract is taken by a wealthy New York
company, the same who built the Erie railroad. It
is perfectly astonishing to witness the immense tide
of emigration that is pouring into this country. We
have from three to four large steam ship3 arriving
here every twenty days, with from two to four hun
dred passengers each. And now tha it is ascer
tained, almost beyond a doubt, that the gold mines
of this country are equal to those of Australia or
California, I confidently expect in a short time to
see at least a thousand persons arriving and landing
on our shores a week.
We have the greatest excitement imaginable pre
vailing here in regard to the recent gold discoveries
on the upper Colorado, the Concho, and other points
iu a few hundred miles of us. . A great many have
gone to the mines, and otheraare getting ready .as
fast as they can to go. I have seen some very rich
specimens myself, and Col. Skyles, who is just down
from San Antonio, reports that he has just seen a
returned miner with a specimen of pure virgin gold
weighing oue ounce. He also reports that there
are from two to five hundred persons in the mines
averaging from ?8 to $10 per day.
I had intended to say something about myself,
-but finding my sheet nearly lull I must abandon it
till my next. Suffice it to say, I am practicing law,
and though I say it myself, I am the third lawyer
here, there being but two others in the place.
Tours truly, W. H. Woodward.

Washington, April 25, 1853.
The Union announces an improvement in the
President's health. If there has been any improve
ment in it since his inauguration, it has taken place
within a few days. Long continued oxcitement,
grief occasioned by his sad domestic afflictions, and
severe labor, have disordered General Pierce's ner
vous system, and impaiied the vigor of his frame to
an extent which has excited the concern and alarm
of his friends. The countrjr will receive with pleas
ure the Union's assurance that he has recovered
from the indisposition under which he was laboring
ten days since.
We have another invasion of Hards and Softs
from the North, the Softs largely preponderating.
The patriotism of New York is yet perturbed on
account of the distribution of the spoils. Prince
John Van BureD, Gov. Seymour, Collector Bran
son, and many others arc or havebeen here to warn
the President of the necessities and expectations of
the party. Mr. Van Buren and young America, as
Mr. Saunders, of the Democratic Review, is called,
dined with the President on Friday, and explana
tions were given and received. The best way to
settle the New York difficulties and discontents
would be to abolish the offices which create them.
New York has four times the patronage of any State
in the Union.

gies are getting all the best places. Their expe

' - THE SUB-TREASURY.
t has been openly cha-ged in the public prints
upon the officers of the Government that thejr have
violated the Independent Treasury Law by illegal
transfers of the public money out of their control.
This is a very grave charge, amounting under the
law to felony. It has been stated in explanation,
that of the $6,500,000 of five per cent, stock which
fall due in July, 1853, the Department has been
making purchases as far as it could obtain the stock
and paying for it out of the accumulated balances;
that, in order to do this without exciting the mar
ket by aiming openly i-ito it, the Department has
advanced or loaned mon3y to a leading broker who
purchased in his own name; that for this purpose
the specie was withdi awn from' the Government
vaults and placed in a bank to the credit of an in
dividual, where it remained for a length of time, to
the extent of $500,000, without interest, and was
finally returnel to ' the Treasury vault on the ap
proaching change of administration, on the plea
that the stock could not be obtained. The facts in
the case seem to be these. By an arrrangement be
tween Thomas Corwin, Secretary of the Treasury,
and Simeon Draper, Esq., broker, of Wall street,
the latter deposited at Washington a quantity of
stocks, mostly Southern and western railroad secu
rities, and qn these stocks the Secretary drew war
rants on the "Sub-Treasury here to the extent of
$500,000, in favor of Mr. Draper. On the change
of administration, Mr. Draper paid back one-half
the amount, and retains the other until the time for
which he borrowed expires probably next July.
It is stated that he obtained the face of his secu
rities from the Treasury, and that he,payso per
cent, interest. In addition to this transaction, it is
stated that John J. Palmer, Esq., .obtained a simi
lar amount in two warrants, one of $300,000 from,
the New York Sub-Treasury, and "one of 200,000
from the Boston Sub-Treasury; that on the request
of the Department, after the change in Govern
ment, he returned these,sums. It will be observed
that money both here and at Boston was paid out
by the officers, on regular warrants drawn in favor
of the payee, and they had no knowledge of the
nature of the draft. The whole matter seems to
rest entirely with Thomas Corwin, Esq. If Mr.
Draper pays 5 per cent, say $25,000 per annum iu
terest, who got the money? The 16th section of
the Sut-Trcasury provides as follows:
"If any one of the said ofliccrs, or of those connected with
the Post'Oflice Department, shall conven to his own use, in
any wnv whatever, or shall use by way ofinvestmeut in any
kind of"property or merchandize, or shall loan with or with
out interest, or shall devosit in anv bank, or shall exchange
for other funds, except as allowed by this act, any portion of
the public moneys entrusted to him for safe keeping, dis
bursement, transfer, or for any oiher purpose, every such act
shall be deemed and adjudged to be uu embezzlement of so
much of tiie said moneys as shall be thus taken, converted,
invested, used, loaned, deposited or exciiauged which is
hereby declared to be a felony"
The act specifics exactly how disbursements of
the public money shall be made, and the Secretary
of the Treasury has no more t ight to vary the mode
of payment than the lowest clerk iu the Depart
ment The Secretary has a rignt to transfer the
public money only as the law directs iz: :Sec.
' 20. To transfer moneys in the hands of any one
depository constituted by this act to any other de
pository constituted by tiie same."
For the purpose of making payments, the Treas
urer ' may draw upon any one of the depositories,
as he may think most conducive to the public in
terest, or to the convenience of the public creditors,
or both." But "no exchange of funds shall be made
by any disbursing officer or agents of the govern
ment, of any grade or denomination whatsoever, or
connected with any branch of the public service."
Now it is averred that Mr. Thomas Corwin dil
exchange drafts upon the New York Sub-Treasury,
with Mr. Draper, for fancy railroad securities at
their lace. If this be so, he clearly stands within
the penalty of the law, which inflicts five years
imprisonment for its infraction. The recipients or
borrowers of the money are not- made liable. If Mr.
Draper made a good bargain, he was not bound to
give legal advice to the counsel in the Gardiner
case in respect to money transactions. The whole
of the matter is not yet transpired.
All the Assistant Treasurers are to give bonds,
and it is the duty of the Secretary to renew and
extend these bonds from time to time, as the accu
mulation of funds may require. Now, it is charged
that in the face of all these stringent provisions,
sums of $500,000 and upwards, in gold, have been
absolutely taken out of the government vaults of a
'pet bank," and then returned to the government
- It is obvious that, in a time of pressure like that
which we have passed through, "a pet bank" would
derive immense advantages from having large sums
in specie placed at its control; and moreover, that
while the necessity for it to retain that specie lasted,
the obstacles to applying it to the purchase of
stock would be insurmountable. The possibility of
such transactjons-as these is suggestive of many and
great impending evils, and calls for the most search
ing investigation. New York Economist.

NEW BOOKS OF TRAVEL IN THE EAST.
W. T. BERRY & CO. have this day-received :
YUSEF;OR, THE JOURNEY OF THE FRANGL A
Crusade in the East. By J. Ross Beown. Author of "Etch
ings of a Whaling Cruise" and "Crusoe Life," in Harper's
Magazine. With Illustrations.
"So racy and brilliant a book of Eastern travel has not ap
peared for a long time. Mr. Brown made his debut as an
author some years ago, when he had scarcely passed his
majority, in his "Etchings of a Whaling Cruise, which we
recollect of noticing in terms of high commendation. His
recent "Crusoe Life," in Harper's Magazine, gave promise
of powers of observation and description which is amply
confirmed in "Yusef." His style is marked by -uncommon
liveliness, often rising to rare vigor and eloquence." New
York Courier & Enquirer.

PlTFSBURJir, PEXNSYL VAN I A.
THE subscribe being desirous of giving his whole atten
tion to his Iron Works at New Castle, Pa., wishes to
dispose of tha llore Cotton- Factory.
This establishment enjoys an unrivaled reputation, and
the Hope Yarns ::lvays find a market; in preference to any
others not luanufactutcd at Pittsburgh. The- Milt contains
a little over SuOO spindles. The macninery is all iu perfect
order, and now in acti ve operation, having all the latest im
provements for making 1'nrna of the best quality at the
Tne property is bounded by tne Allegheny Kiver and
1 am prepared to sell on the most fnborable term?, requir
ing but little cash, and giving very long time, and easy
payments, on tlto balance.
To persons who contemplate engaging in the Cotton busi
ness in the West or South, this oilor an opportunity seldom
to be met with. The same amount of machinery could not
now be supplied by manufacturers, in less than twelve
months, whilst thi could be removed and put into operation
at once, with a reputation and line of custom already estab
lished, Torth thousands to a Cotton Mill, and which" it takes
years to acquire.
I would subscibe a large amount of the purchase money
as stock, in a Company that would conduct the business
here without requiring my persona! attention.
The property, from its couveniencu for procuring materi
als, is admirably situated for the manufacture of Machinery,
Locomotive Engines, Ac. To a Company formed for tins
purpose, I would give the most liberal terms, and if desired,
would also subscribe a large amonntas stock.
For further particulars.iiiquire of myself, or Mr. Mowusotf

say, from our own knowledge, that no medicine ever discov
ered has performed the same wonderful cures that it has,
hot iu man and Le.ist,:.nd it is equally good tor both, which
makes it so truly valuable. It is, therefore, nailed by the
suffering as the greatest blessing of tho age, and no one
would ever allow himself to be without this vereign balm,
who had once witnessed its magic power over disease, and
its wonderful potency in ielieving pain, however severe, in
a few minutes' time. We can cstly desiic you to call upon
the agent, who will funiih you, free of charge, a small book
containing, besides other valuable Information, ulai go list

cures effected by this celebrated medicine, which surely
are enough to convince the most scepticle of its transcend

The public are cautioned against another counterfeit,
which has lately made its appearance, called W. B. Farrell's
Arabian Liniment, the most dangerous of all the counter
feits, because his having the name of Farrcll, many will buy
it in good faith, without the knowledge that a counterfeit ex
ists, aiid they will perhaps only discover their error when
tho spurious mixture has wrought its evil effects.
The genuine article is manufactured only by II. G. Farrell,
sole inventor and proprietor, and whoksale druggist, Nr!
17 Main street, Peoria, Illinois, to whom all applications fi.r
