TO MISS M. E.
Mr. Editor : '
: For M. E's ic formation state
That I'm in want of a mate
One in love's witchcraft an adept,
To make me life's ills forget. V
If such an one this Miss M. E. be,
I'll take her as pilot to eternity.
Her portrait's just the thing,
Her praises I'll ever sing;
Her "curtain lectures" I'll not mind.
Provided, they're not of the "Caudle" kind:
If she'll but with her whole soul love!
I'll take her for one from above!
I care not whether she's comely or fair,
Or what may be the color of her hair;
Though ugly she must not be
For ugliness I would not see;
There must a beauty blend her acts
A beauty founded on facts.
In statue she may be tall or short
. Provided she never gives a "tall" retort:
Her soul most always beam from her eyes,
For which 1 will pay her with the gentleatof sighs;
And when she smiles her "ivorys" must gleam
From the losebuds that they're between.
I sadly want a little wife
One who can love with her life;
For such an one, from life's "milky way,"
I'd cull the flowerts for a bouquet
Whose fragrance doth of life make a dream
As we pass swiltly down Time's stream.
I think I'll suit you "charming" Miss
Can waft you to a heaven of bliss:
My nose is not a pug, nor my eyes green.
Though verdant to others I may often seem;
About medium is my height,
And in bulk I'm not very light.
My age is not exactly "twenty,"
Tbouffh of years I've seen plenty.
In order to cnSHe my eelibic station,
I seek with you, "dearest," in explanation.
If you've any desire to happy be.
Address, at this office, Mr. i. C.
If you see fit to favor my suit
We'll immediately the fact about bruit;
The trumpet must sound, the drum beat.
As we at Hymen's altar meet:
And we'll bid unto the marriage snpper
That joyless being, poor Old Bachelor.
Tbe Dying Words of an Old Editor, 1780.
My son, I shall soon be srone, and you will have
the management of the concern. Never expect to
sustain your paper upon any other foundation than
its merits. - lie prudent, temperate, and upright
Work hard. Be civil to every body, and particu
larly to your customers. . If they call themsaves
your patrons, I wouldn't mind it, Billy ; let them
call themselves nabobs, it they please, so long as
they pay for the paper ; never exhibit that aristoc
racy which is a part of the original sin that is in us
all, in any such way, for it will do you no good, my
Above all things, never put it in the power of
any man to say, "that is our paper," we subscribed
twenty dollars to keep it up ; " for sure as you live,
Billy, sooner or later, something will be printed that
somebody won't like; and then somebody will drop
nia suoscnpuon to get your paper down. - Une man
will withdraw, or become a, little water-rrruellv to
wards you, because you are too severe upon sin
and another because you are not half severe enough.
Another will give you that, half-way support that is
more injurious than no support at all ; and if your
paper is heartily praised by some old fashioned,
honest lieartcd man, he will reply in prudent and
well balanced phraseology, that he does not know
but it is so, and he does not know as it is so it is so.
Every morning read the fable of the Old Man Jack
ass, and Little Boy. Never omit it, Billy, as long
as you live. You will have many things to en
counter that are not very am-eeable. Anonymous
letters of an impudent character burn at once ;
never mention them to any body, not even to your
wife. Where a customer drops the paper do not
betray your displeasure, by an extraordinary ap
pearance when yoa meet again. Never run about
to pith up crumbs of comfort, nor ask any man
what he thinks of this, that or the other article in
your paper, which you wrote yourself, Billy. Be
cautious in putting in your advertisements. 1 lost
a good advertising customer by placing another
man's advertisment of melasses before bis own.
With your good common sense you will do well
enough. The public respect you for your inde
pendence; but you must remember that there is
the same difference between real and affected in
dependence, as between real nutmegs and the arti-
ble manufactured at home. In a word, fear God,
and shame the DeviL -
Predictions fob the present Year. A Ger
man newspaper has recently published a prophecy
by a Benedictine monk, who died in 1846, the pur
port ot ot which is that the present year, 1850,
will be one of unusual prospepity. The different
sects of cbristianty will this year accord. The Sul
tan will be poisoned, (Aboul Medjil had best take
care) and his empire will become christian. Rus
sia will suffer much from a warlike nation of the
cast. A German Prince will found an eastern em
pire. Grain, fruit, lentils, and other vegetables
will be so plentiful that the barns will be unable to
contain them. The disease of the potato will everv

Indian Council. V
The Syracuse Journal says that a series of Indi
an councils have been held daily at the Onondaga
Castle for the past fortnight. The writer says, "on
Friday last was celebrated the important rite of
sacrificing the White Dog ! The customary victim
was immolated on a flaming altar, with all the for
mality and circumstance of ancient usage among
the Iroquois, in presence of a pagan portion of the
nation, and numerous white persons,- spectators.
On Tuesday last, this crowning festival of the Indi
an year, after a continuance of nine days, was clos
ed with the exciting and wonderful ceremony of the
War Dance. These observances are continued in
the midst of a christian community with' all the
reverence, solemnity and zeal of ancient times with
a punctuality and devotion which shows the regard
these people have for the institutions of their fa
thers, and with what tenacity they still cling to
their ancient customs.'
FREMONT, SANDUSKY COUNTY, FEBRUARY 9, 1850.
Follow Him Home.
A simple minded old country-woman who was
one day congratulated on the apparent good qual
ities and disposition of her husband, replied in the
vernacular of her native district, "Ah l ye should
Follow him home ! The phrase, though unpre
tending, admits of an explanation both wide and
significant What a different social state should
we have had the world been always accustomed to
follow men, things and ideas home. How much
that is vague and mysterious, would now be clear
and explicable ; how much that is contemned would
rise into honor. And we may perhaps, without be
ing over-ventursome, affirm, that the moral and
physical world would not have been just as it is,
had following home been an immemorial practice.
The proposition may be supported by discuss
ing a few salient facts in history. Had the priests
of ancient Egypt been followed home, the pyra
mids might never have been built Could Mahom
et's disciples have followed him home, one hundred
millions of people would not. now be votaries cf the
cresent Had Ceesar followed home the spare and
abstemious Brutus, on the advent of the Martian
Ides, he might not have died tinder traitorous dag
gers in the capital. Had the monk Schttaftt been
followed home by a cardinal's hat or bishop's mitre,
would he have invented giinpotvder! Had the
Romish churchmen followed Luther home; and
searched the secret of his 'heresy,' what Wars,
persecutions and miseries Would ha-e been spared
to humanity. Could papal nuncios have been fol
lowed home, people would not have been silly
enough to endure the horrors of an interdict
Had the Danes followed home the minstrel, whose
harp-strings charmed their camp, England might
have waited a little longer for hundreds, tythings,
and trial by jury. Had Columbus riot followed
home the Castilian sovereigns again and arain,
would he have discovered America ? The queen
of Scots might have saved her Jiesid had Elizabeth
but once followed her home to her private cham
ber at Fotheringay. If instead of shutting tip Sol
omon de Caus as a lunatic, sortie kind patron had
followed him home, James Watt might have found
much of his work already done to his hand. Had
Charles the I followed Hamden home on his first
refusal to pay ship-money Whitehall might never
have witnessed a royal execution. Had the Bed
ford magistrates followed Bunyan home, instead of
incarcerating his body.whero would be the pilgrim's
progress ? Could one or two of prince Charlie's
chieftains have followed the London Bank Direc
tors home on that memorable "black Friday" in
1 745, there might have been farewell to George
I, and the Hanoverian dynasty. Could Napoleon's
soldiers have followed him home, how brief would
have been the catalogue of his victories. Had
Robespierre followed Collot d' Herbois home on
the eve of the ninth Thermidor, the Curmagnole
miget never have been danced and sung round his
headless trunk. Had Fox followed Pitt horae.there
would have been an end to their rivalry. Had
Walpole followed Chatterton home, instead of de
ceiving him with vain promises, a poet the more
wuuiu nave leu immortal tnoughts tor posterity.
When the hostile Philadelphia printer followed
Franklin home, and saw the remains of a loaf on
which the unconoious hero had dined, his hope of
crushing his sturdy compeittor vanished. Were
slaves followed home manumission, would not be
long delayed ; arid if impatient turbulence could fol
low legislators home, it would nut less faith in ma
levolence. Endless would be our catalogue if pur-
sueu ; ana cnequrea wun tne lights and shades of
hope and fear, success and disannointrrtent iov anrt
sorrow. Were we keen in the investigation of ex
amples, we should find them resolvable into two
great classes; those who da and those who do not
follow home their thought The latter comprise
what Wordsworth calls "the dreary waste of man's
life," among the former appear the world's heroes
whether stood or bad. Homers and Neros, Rieh
zis and Shakspeares, Machiavellis and Newtons.
Beneficent or Malignant is not now the question ;'
was their thought followed home ? Glance for a
moment at the world of politics; what changes
have been wrought by following a subject home.
A A C A At- . -x , , . . J
ai iirsi, me pursuit 01 it is laugned at. as an awk
ward mistake ; by-and-by statesmen discover that
there is something in it, and "get up" its elementa
ry principle. At last a voice gives utterance to
the ripened and multitudinous thought of a people
and the matter is settled, whether it be food-
emancipation, or forest abolition.
If followed home, how much pass'od off as leina
would be detected as nothing more than seemina :
ostensible reality would stand confessed a mockery
1 I T a .a -
anq a snam. now much that has been regarded
with awe, would prove to be "pillared rotteness."
We should get at the tru materials for writing
insiory. A-any secrets would come to light; and
the reason why, for many a struggle, be laid bare.
All the world is kin ; and we should not unfreo ueni-
ly find that had the victor followed the vanquish
ed home, he would have seen cause to lament his
victory. Links of union wonld present themselves;
where nothing was looked for but points of repul
sion. How much of modest worth would be
brought to the day, and made exemplary, if follow
ed home, which is now obscured beneath incxper
ience, or grinding necessity. Shyness and awk
wardness in public would, when" followed home,
be found manifested in heroic endurance, or effus
Pretence and plausibility, whether clad in rass or
attended by laced footmen, would hardly survive
the following home. Track yon whining, coatless,
and shoeless beggar to his laii ; the shiver and
whine have given place to a bold tone and rude
bearing, as equipped with coat and shoes, he sits
down to a recherche supper. Softness of speech,
and suavity of demeanor would no longer be a
cloak for nefariousness ; nor sanctimoniousness for
sincereity. Take that man at the dinner party; he
is the life and soul of the company. His observa
tions are received with respect, and his witticisms
with applause. Over wine and walnuts he has
descanted on all that js noblest in public virtues.
He has demonstrated what a public man had
ought to be, aad sketched a character whose per-
r ; i.i -i ii i - . . ,
icuuuiia ivuuua reuuncne an accordances; but tol
low him home! As his knock sounds at the door,
his little children1 shrink away and hide themselves
in corners; his servant obeys tfie summons doubt
ingly, and his wife trembles ; for too well she knows
that the public moralist is a private tyrant Po
litical theorizing brings no domesic amenities; so
easy is self-deception when not followed home.
Man is said to be a social animal ; but perhaps
for social we ought td write gregarious. There is
a going in a common direction ; a union for warmth,
protection, and procuring of food, as with the quad
ruped herda But where is the ministering spirit,
the genuine, active sympathy that promts to follow
home. How much crime, generated by ignorance
and error, might be mitigated and prevented if fol
lowed home ; how much virtue, trembling in the
balance, be preserved intact Who has not at
some time or other, been followed home by a
strange dog? How beseechingly the animal looks
up when you reach your door; confiding in his in
stinct, yet doubting his reception. What has led
him to single out you among all others ? Friend
less, be seeks a friend to be to him instead of his
lost master. The poor may not follow the rich to
his house, yet how many heart-stricken mourners
come forth every day into the streets of our towns
and cities impelled by a desperate hope that some
touch of sympathy would reach them at last For
years that faint and flickering gleam of hope is all
that has kept them alive. Brightest and most fair
in the morning it wanes at noon, and at night when
they retrace their weary steps home wards is spent
dead; only to be resuscitated by the blessed un
conciousness of sleep, or by a following home.
And it is consolitory to reflect that misery is oftimes
followed home ; that oil is poured into smarting
wounds, and whispers of hope into folorn and dreary
minds; Btit the sisters of charity are comparative
ly few ; and the sympathies of the time are for a
following home that shall ameliorate rather than
. On the whole we may conclude that the prac
tice of following home would, in many ways, be
productive of good. The philosopher who wished
for a window in every breast might have found
this ho unworthy substitute. But here, theory
and practice are hardly to be reconciled. It is not
likely that communities would submit to the social
espoinage involved in a general system of following
home. The possibility of such a system, however,
might not unprofitably be kept in mind ; and each
one, on arriving at his own door might ask himself
tne question how should I act if followed home ?

Tii r key.
Kossuth's Doost-The last mail from Constan
tinople brought us the news that the question re
garding the Hungarian refugees was finally settled
between Russia and Turkey. The Times exulting
ly assured us that the terms proposed by the Porte
had been accepted by the Czar; and the Ambas
sador of England and France having expressed
their satisfaction with these terms the question
was settled. What are these terms? We thought
that the point in question was the inviolability of
the hospitality of Turkey ; the refusal to allow the
Emporer of Russia to interfere with the Turkish
reception of fugitives that were no subjects of his.
That to assert this right the Sultan defied the
threats of Russia, and that England and France
avowed to defend Turkey in its honorable resolve.
For this Franoe and England advance their fleets
to the Dardanelles; there is a big and blustering
air assumed by the Three Powers; there is a great
offence manifested by Russia, immense dudgeon by
its Ambassador, a prodigous running to and from
ofEffendis and Envoys, and so eventually the
thing is arranged. But how arranged ? Arranged,
says the Ttme quite to the satisfaction of all par
ties. Dembinsky and the rest of the Poles are to
be expelled from Turkey Kossuth and his fellows
are to be imprisoned for life in some fortified town
in Central Asia !
Is that the arrangement so satisfactory to all par
ties ? To Turkey, to England and to France ?
Was it for that that there was" so much mouthinfr
and frowning, so much blustering and menacing of
war : vv ny, wnat would Jttussia or Austria desire
more, except the actual delievery of the refugees
to the tender mercies of their gibbets? So far aS
the honor of Turkey, France and England are con
cerned, the question is fairly conceded to the insol
ent and overbearing Czar. After all the pretence
of defiance, the .three Powers have cowed and
given up thre affair. So far as the honor of Turkey
was concerned, it fay in preseving tbe inviolability
of hospitality given to the refugees. But is ex
pulsion from .the kingdom, at the dictum of
haughty Kussian; such mviolabity ? The sentence
pronounced 6ri ftie' Poles; however li bearable.
They can r'encfove" themselves froiri the .fero
cious demands, of the Russian, and ihe feeble
swagger of Turkey; but for Kossuth and hiscom-p'ahions-what
doom, short of that of the scaffold
or the gallows,coufd Russia desire more. They are
not to be allowed to remove themselves to a more
secure arid hospitable region: They are to be kept
safe safe from proceeding to England, where the
very presence of Kossuth would stamp sentiments
of disgust and contempt for Russian barbarian's
brutal lorce, already so unequivocally pronounced.
The Sultan has, in fact, after all his bravado,
consented to become the jailor of Nicholas, and
has' converted the boasted hospitality of the Mus
sulman into the creeping treachery of a terrified
And England, we are told, has" consented to
tnisrris pertectiy satisfied with the arrangement
What! was it for this that enthusiastic public. meet
ings were held all over the country the audacious
demands of Russia denounced the spirit of Tur
key applaused and our Government called upon
to protest, most decidedly against everv concession
to a demand so insolent and so disgraceful ? If
that were all, we are altogether mistaken in the
views and feelings of the people of England. It
never could be the intention of the public to
oe contented with the imprisonment of the Hun
garian refugees for life, by way of Turkish hosoita
lity. It never could be for any such end that our
iiovernment, acting under the impulse of public
feeling, ordered the british fleet to the Dardanelles,
and announced support to Turkey. Support in its
becoming turnkey to the Czar ? Support in the
perpetual imprisonment of Hungarian chiefs at the
demand of Russia ? Tbe British public regarded
Kossuth and his companions as men who had been
heroically and rightfully defending their Constitu
tion and their country.- They regarded the inter
ference of Russia, in the attempt to put down the
liberties of Independent Hungary, with undisguis
ed and unmitigated resentment They still regard
Kossuth and his companion's as no subject of Rus
siaas ameriabfe to' rid demands from it as the
guests, and not the prisoners of of the Porte ; arid,
consequently, as at liberty to depart arid take up
their abode where they will. But, says the Times,
the conduct of Kossuth, and his companions is
now most ungrateful. England and r ranee have
saved them from the clutches of Bussia and the
gallows, and now they are most indignant at the
idea of being held as perpetual prisoners 1
It is plain that Kossuth and his comrades re
garded the assurances of Turkey, and the Droiects
of England and France, precisely as the people -of
mis country regarded tne bona Jiae expression
of resistance to all demands of Russia concerning
the fate and the liberties of the refugees. We
shall be greatly mistaken if the English public rest
satisfied in the present extraordinary arrangement
We cannot believe that it can have meant nothing
more than a hectoring defiance to Russia, and
then a quiet submission to its will. We are aware
that a courier has reached this country in all speed
from Kossuth, and we trust that the public will
not suffer Lord Palmers ton to want its aid and
countenance in demanding from Turkey an actual
and not a sham resistance to the Russian assump
tion. The Times says, with a chuckle Cobden
boasted that he would crumple up the Russian pow
er ime a pit oi paper, ana mat xtussia immediately
laid Hungary at its feet that Cobden denounced
tbe Austrian loan, and it was immediately raised.
That paper pursues its steady course, maligning
the defeated Hungarians and Italians, in every
possible manner blackening the character of the
most distinguished of the ladies and it may now
add to its demoniac triumphs the taunt that the
English people protested against the audacity of
Russia. Ana mat audacity was immediately
crowned by tbe quailing of the Turk, and the ig
nominous acquiescence of England's own Embas
sador in the infamous submission. We wait for
further indications of the public mind on this sin
gular subject j ,
Indian Jngglers.'; : j
One of the men, taking a large earthern vessel,
with a capacious mouth, tilled it with water, and
turned it upside down, when all the water flowed
out: but the moment it was placed, with the mouth
upwards it became full. ' He than emptied it al
lowing any one to inspect it who chose. This being
done, he desired that one of the party would fill
it ; his request was obeyed ; still, when he reversed
the jar, not a drop of water flowed and upon
turning it, to our astonishment, it was empty. I ex
amined tne jar caremiiy when empty, but detected
nothing which could lead to a discovery of the
mystery. I was allowed to retain and fill it my
self; still, upon taking it up, all was void within,
yet the ground around it was perfectly dry, so that
how the water had disappeared, and where it had
been conveyed, were problems which none of us
were able to expound. Ihe vessel employed by
the jugglers on this oecassion was the common
earthenware of the country, very roughly made ;
auu, luuiucr tu uuiituiue iw mat it naa not oecn
especially constructed for the purpose of aiding bis
clever deceptions, he permitted it to be broken
in our presence ; the fragements were then handed
round for the inspection of his highness and the
party present with him. The next thing that en
gaged our attention, was a feat of dexterity alto
gether astonishing. A woman, the upper part of
whose body was entirely uncovered, presented her
self to our notice, and taking a bamboo, twenty feet
nign, piacea h uprignt on a nat stone, and then,
without any support, climbed to1 the top of it with'
surprising activity. Having done this she stood
upon one leg on tbe point of the bamboo, balancing
-it on nie wuue. iwunu ner waist sne naa a girdle,
to which was fixed an iron socket: springing from
her upright position on the bamboo; she threw her
self horizontally forward with such exact precision
that the top of the pole entered the socket of the
iron zone, and in this position she spun - herself
round with a velocity that made me giddy to look
at tne bamboo an the white appearing as u it
were supported by some Supernatural agency.
She turned her legs backwards, till the heels touch
ed the shoulders, and grasping the ankles in her
hands, continued her rotations so rapidly, that the
outline of her body was entirely lost to the eye,
and she looked like a revolving ball. Having per
formed several other feats equally extraordinary,
she slid down the elastic shaft, and raising it in the
air, balanced it upon her chin, then upon her nose.
and finally projected it a distance from her, -with;
out tne application oi ner hands, She was an
elderly woman, and by no' means pTposessing in
her person; which; I conclude; was the reason that
the rajah, though he applauded her dexterity, did
not. give ner a prooi oi nis iioeranty. we, how
ever, threw her a few rupees, with which she ap
peared perfectly satisfied.

The Working Men of Paris.
The condition of the working mani in Paris, who
has occupation, is by no means such as to make
him fretful with his lot, if he has not the misfor
tune to be weak enough to listen to' the language
of exitement" The ldwest Cages' paid to working
man 2t 50c per day. This is the mere laboring
man, the Komme de peine. The mason the carpen
ter, the smith, &c, earns from from 3f to Si per
day. Let us, howerer, take the very lowest rate of
wages, and see how the laboring man who' nt single
can live. - His room will cost him, if he has not
furniture of his own, at the rate of 5 sous per day.
He will require two pounds of the best bread, (in
Paris the workmen w ill' not eat bread of the second
quality ; this will cost six sous. For his" breakfast
he can have at the milk shops which supply work
men, a large basin of cafe an lait, sweetened, for
four sous, or a basin of soup, with a ' good sized
piece of boiled beef for six sous. At dinner in
the eatirig houses', where workmen congregate, he
can have a good plate of ragout, in which of course
the vegetables prevail, or even a rosbif aux legumes
for four sous, and a cinquieme (a large ruriimcr full)
of wine for two sous. At each of these meals he
finds his own bread, and in the evening he has
enough left, with another cinquieme of wine for two
sous, to make a good supper. Thus be will expend
for food and lodging either seventeen of nineteen
sous, say the latter and thirty -one sous will remain
for clothing washing, fec. If the workman has a
wife and family, the case ?s, of c'cnirse different;
but tbe wife may be able to earn something, and
the children, if sufficiently old,- can add to' tire earn
ings of the father. A boy ten or twelve; if he be
intelligent arid honest, can earn from seven t&' ten
francs a week, as an en-arid boy: I fyive spoken
here only of the (east well paid of Working cfasses.
The mechanic who has fotir ffaftcs; ot eveft three
francs per day, after paying the expense of a fami
ly; for; as the French live, a good housewife . will
make twenty-five sous' per day pay for the food of
