For the Freeman:
To Correspondents: However!
To those of inv suiters, ho, wishing of late.
To unite with M. E. in that most happy atato
Of enjoyment, awarded to such as so love
As to merit the favor of Heaven above,
I have one word of caution ere ever 1 can
With safety reolv to a love-sick voung man:
If you closely observe it, the language of eyes
Kesembles the twinkling el stars in tne sxies.
But the former is caused by electrical tire;
And aa that is the case, why neglect the great wire.
By which liirhtniuir conveya to a II parte of the laud.
The news in an install! ? The time is at hand, '
When "the man at helm," at a Telegraph station, '
Without doubt, will become confidant nf the nation.
1 think it ia better to trust there, at once:
Besides, who can help calling anyone "dunce"
That will pass by an office, where one man will know,
To another, where many Will not be too slow
In pubushitig,-openty. through ev'ry street
The name of an author, to all that they meet!
True, editors must be privileged class;
For with them and their helo-inates, I find aa a mass,
Though they seetn lu theirtusiness so cautious and snug,
Tbt they lean to one side like a- one-handled jug
Which ot.n will keel over, if moved the right way.
In fine, to all whom it cosc'icRNs, I will say;
That it will not be prudent lo -nake "charge d'affairs,"
Any one who is troubled with family cares.
For J am not divested of preconceived notions
Of "ihe Telegraph office," despite pHls end potions;
And.lhf refore, all orders intended for M. E ,
Must be sent to that ptnee: I am done. L-t me see
No. I don't want a fellow wrapped up in a "sack," .
Conveying, snail-like, all his wealth on his back.
With nought in his wallet, and "ditto" in head:
If nuitrd with such, I always should dread -Cold

He ou d lake all the hlniikels, and leave me to freeze.
Now any, especting lo gain my esteem,
Mnxt faithfully follow some calling. I deem
Of importai ce: (see, catalogue published by M. E. )
The rest will be slighted. So Mr. J. C.
Your verdure, Sir, don't lalk" bont;
Your letter proves yiu "keen,"
But when a woman luncies you,
. Look out Tor something green.
You say you are a bachelor;
.A cotqueall too, 1 trn;
If you should ever visit me,
just START When BID TO GO.
I soon would an intruder drive
Out of my house or room;
Or pin the dish-rag to his back;
Perhaps, lake up the broom!
As yon have lived three two-score years,
A single, useless life.
How can you even hope to get
A young and charming wile?
Then such cuinpariu'liR as yours,
Might mitke a Stoic laugh;
For flowers from the "milky-way,"
Would fat an unweaued calf.
If M. E. you want to pilot yon
Through calms and storms forever,
I'll pack you in a shaving-box
And launch you on the river.
You surely have not courage yet
To leave your homealoue(?)
Your mother, ceitainly, would fret
To think that you were gone!
So no" a-hem ! don't take it hard
To find your suit rejected;
It is uo more ihan what you might,
. In reason have expected.
To U. S. 1 mnst now reply:
I Iske the niildiiepa of your eye.
But, never knew that this term, "beaut-,"
Could be applied to men. In duty -Your
candor binds me to express
What I would fain conceal, unless
In private. W(h )igs are now in fashion.
(Hope Taylor friends will not get in a passion.) -
Tobacco lips I ne'er cou'd kiss;
The odor poisons all the bliss;
Which else might be enjoyed, the candle'
I cannot personate, the handle
With such a poor, old, rusty blade.
Would soon be thrown into the shade;
For even now you are complaining.
That "rheuinatia' " is your quicker pace restraining.
This had comp'aint, I do suppose.
No "Doctor" can remove. Your nose,
Yon say, is perfect, and your whisker,
Is elegant; 'twill make a frisker,
If kept till summer, when the flies
Molest the ladies noses, eyes.
And ears: yon tnav, by their permission.
Then "fun the flies:" but there is one coudition
Which never does look well; for when
The chin is covered o'er, and then
The month is puckered like a rabbit's,
The man is given to stingy habits.
I've heard thit some men have a knack
Of cutting open ev'ry sack,"
And 'laying by;" the heap increases.
Till they, despairing, sell on tick the pieces. "
I am not from "Nee Jersey," to wear what to you.
It seems, is disgusting; for stockings of blue
I never put on; so your anger don't vent:
I'm a native-born Buckeye, of German descent
Your failings are many, good qualities few;
I regret. Sir, there is not the least hope for you.
There is one thing besides so uncouth an expression
I cannot endure; that is your profession.
What, a pedagogue? Mercy! How have yon flie face
To make the avowal? I would not disgrace
AH my friends, bv uniting wilb oiie of a set.
Thai are acknowledged impostors; tiny, further, I yet.
Why a man of tour calling should seek fora wife
With no other pursuit, cannot tell for my life.
A pedagogue, eh ! you, no doubt, a long story, Jj
Cnn tell of the arts: are perhaps in your glory, -
Like a quack in his office, surrounded by roots,"
Intent on "extracting;" or lawyer with suits.
Quite unable to settle the "Sasl" now in hand:
Never talking to profit, but keeping the stand.
You cannot win ME by such means, yon must know;
Law may be your principal object; if sv.
Yon may teach, as, no doubt, miny other have tried; ,
Just carry your book to the schcct4l"W hide

Fhkmobt, February, 1850. M. E.
There has been a custotj prevalent throughout
Pent and Chili.which to strangers is quite imposing.
It is this at nine o'clock in the evening, the great
bell of the cathedral is tolled for one minute ; dur
ing this time all business is suspended, every
one takes off his hat, is expected to kneel, cross
himself, say his his prayers, and the more devout
to kiss the pavement. In the streets shops pri
vate dwellings and hotels, all business, all mo
tion, all conversation, is suspended, until the great
bell ceases to toll ; the bugles at the palace gates
and the convent bells sound merrily, and busi
ness and conversation are resumed at the point
where they were dropped,
J8T Beware of slippery side-walks and painted
women. They are as treacherous as strong drink
of an old enerov reconciled.
ill i 0 c 1 1 a n e o u 3
Be thou my star in reason's night.
Be thou my rock in danger's fright,
Be thongh my guide mid passion's way.
My moon by night my aua by day.
The highest eulogy we can prouounce upon this
book of all books, is, to take it for the man of our
counsels, and the polar star of our lives not mere
ly to admit and land its superior excellency, and
let it remain on the shelf, until Anathema Maran
atba, can be written in the dust upon its lids, and
criminally neglect to aid in giving it to million!:, who
are groping in papal and heathen darkness. Divine
in its origin, written by the pen of inspiration, dip
ped in the burning indignation of God against the
wicked, on the one band; and the melting fountain
of his love for the good, on the other; the sublimity
of its language caps the climax of Rhetoric. As a
History of that grand epoch, when God said, ''Let
there be light; and there was light," it stands
alone clothed in the majesty of Divinity. As a
moral image of Deity, of his ruinous fall, and of his
subsequent mad career, it must remain unrivalled.
As a Chart of human nature, and of human rights
and wrongs, and of the character of the great Je
hovah, its delineations, in precision, fulness, and
force of description ; far exceed the boldest strokes
and finest touches, of the master spirits of every
age and clime. As a system of Morals and Reli
gion, every effort of man, to add to its transcen
dent beauty, or omnipotent strength, is presump
tion, and as vain, as an attempt to bind the wind,
or imprison the ocean. As a book of poetry and
eloquence, it stands, in lofty grandeur, towering
above the noblest productions ot the most brilliant
talents, that have illuminated and enraptured the
the classic world. Aa a book of Revelation, it shed
a flood of light upon the wilderness of mind, that
added fresh lusture and refulgence, that had guid
ed mankind to that auspicious, glorious era, when
it burst upon the astonished world. As a book of
Counsel, it wisdom is profound, boundless, infinite.
It meets ever case in time, and is the golden chain
that reaches from Earth to Heaven, It teaches
us our native dignity the design of our crea
tion, the duties we owe to our children, and our
fellow men. It teaches us how to live and how to
die. It points the finally impenitent to their awful
doom it arms the Christian in panoply complete
snatches from death its poisoned sting, from the
grave its boasted victory, and points the soul to its
crowning glory a blissful immortality beyond the
skies. Ihe .rrobe.
To generous minds,
The heaviest debt is that of gratitude,
When 'tis not iu our power to repay it.
Gratitude is a painful pleasure, felt and expres
sed by none but noble souls. Such are pained,
because mislortune places them under the stern
necessity of receiving favors from the benevolent,
who are, as the world would say under no obliga
tion to bestow them free-will offerings, made by
generous hearts,to smooth, the rough path, and wipe
away the tears of a fellow being. They derive a
pleasure trom the enjoyment ot benefits bestowed,
which is rendered more exquisite, by the reflection,
that there are those in the world, who can feel
and appreciate the woes of others, and lend a wil
ling hand to help them out of the ditch those who
are Hot rapped up in the cocoon ofselhsh avarice,
who live only for themselves and die for the devil.
This pleasure is farther refined, by a knowledge
of the happiness enjoyed by the person whose
benevolence dictated the relief, in the contemplation
of a duty performed, imposed by angelic philan
throphy, guided by motives pure as heaven. The
worthy recipient feels deeply the obligations under
which he is placed no time can obliterate them
from his memory, no Statute of Limitation bars
the payment; the moment means and opportunity
are within his power, the debt is joyfully liquidated,
and this very act gives a fresh vigor to his long
Nothing tenders the heart and opens the gush
ing fountain of love, more than the exercise of gra
titude. Like the showers of spring, that cause
flowers to rise from seeds that have long lain dor
mant, tears of gratitude awaken pleasurable sen
sations, unknown to those who have never been
forced from the sunshine of prosperity into the cold
shade of adversity where no warmth is felt, but
that of benevolence no light enjoyed, but of char
ity ; unless it shall be the warmth and light commu
nicated from Heaven to the sincerely pious, who
alone are prepared to meet with calm submission,
the keen and chilling winds of misfortune, and
who, above nil other?, exercise the virtue of grati
tude irr the full perfection Crfits native beauty.
Duration of Eternity.
Various illustrations have been suggested to con
vey to the mind some idea of illimitabe duration. It
has been said, suppose one drop of the ocean should
be dried up every thousand years, how long would
it be before the last drop would disappear, and the
ocean's bed be left dry and dusty? Far onward
as that would be in coming ages, eterntty would
but have commenced. It would still be in its ear
liest hours of infancy.
It has been said, suppose this vast globe upon
which we tread were composed of particles of the
finest sand, and that one particle should disappear
at the termination of each million of years, oh, how
inconceivable immense must be the period which
would elapse before the last particle would be
gone ! And yet eternity would then be in its
morning twilight ; the immortal spirit would than
have just entered on its interminable career.
It has been said, suppose some little insect so
small as to be imperceptible to the human eye,
were to carry this world by its tiny mouthfuls, to
the most distant star the hand of God has placed in
the heavens. Hundreds of millions of years are
required for the performance of a single journey.
The insect commences upon the leaf of a tree, and
takes its little load, so small that even the micros
cope cannot discover that it is gone, and sets out
upon its almost endless journey. After millions
and millions of years have rolled away, it arrives
back again to take its second load. Oh, what in
terminable ages must pass before the one leaf would
be removed ! In what period of coming time would
the whole tree be borne away ? when would the
forest be gone? And when would the insect take
the last particle of this globe, and bear it away in
its long, long journey? Even, then, eternity would
but have commenced ! Pitts Gaz.

COUNTY, MARCH 2, 1850.
Scenes of Civil War in Hungary.
Thk volume is a translation of the correspond
ence of an Austrian officer, who seems to have had
rather a roving than a regular commisson, with a
German newspaper. The descriptions are racy, and
throw a good deal of light "Upon what the Austri
ans suffered and inflicted during the suicidal war
carried on against Hungarian independence; but
very litttle, or rather none at all, upon the great
question at issue, or the actual plans and designs
of the leaders on either side. The testimonies to
the bravery of the Hungarians are numerous thro'
out the volume, and not unfrequently is the chiv
alrous character of their undertaking acknowledg
ed. A romantic passage is introduced which we
may extract The party under the writer's com
mand takes up its quarters in a castle :
"At the tramp of horses and the clank of swords,
the porch-door opened, and an old man, a kind of
steward, followed by servants with great lanterns,
came towards us, asking who we were, and what
was our errand. 1 replied that I wad an officer
the Emperor and King, belonging to the army of
the can ; anc requested in the nrst place to be con
ducted to the master of the mansion. The man
obeyed, though with some reluctance, and led me
into a spacious hall, which by the dim light of a
lamp appeared to be a sort of ancestral hall. Large
pictures were hung upon the walls, and between
them swords, muskets, old armor, and arms of all
"Here ihe castellan bade me wait while he went
to announce me; and I availed myself of this mo
ment to take off my cloak, to set my hair to rigts a
little, to fasten my dolman close about me, to tie my
sash properly ; in short to make myself as smart as
I could. The old man presently came back, con
ducted me along a corridor, and then opened the
folding doors of an apartment, whence issued the
brilliant light of tapers.
"Somewhat dazzled, I entered the apartment,
which was most elegantly fitted up, where a tall,
handsome lady received me with a polite but
proud obeisance. I was just going to introduce
myself, and to apologize for my unbidden visit, when
she extended her hand to me with the loud excla
mation of joy, 'Ah, Baron W !'
"I now recognized her. It was the Countess
St , the Milan beauty, the wife of my old com
rade St , who once saved my life in Bologna,
and who, after his marriage with the fair Marchess
B. , had obtained leave to resign, and retired
to his lordship in Hungary ; and I now found my
self, without having supected it, in his mansion.
"Being called by his wife, he made his appear
ance immediately, and cordial was our embrace.
He was still, as he ever had been, Magyar with body
and soul ; and told me frankly that he should long
since gone to Kossuth, had he not been restrained
by the odious idea of being obliged to fight against
his former comrades; but be assured me that he
would yet do eo. V
I advised that we should not talk of political mat
ters, but rather .think of old times; and his wife
approved the suggestion. By and by came bis sis
ter, the young Countess Helena, the most beauti
ful Hungarian female I hadver seen; and that is
saying a great deal.
"St gave me his word of honor that we were
perfectly safe from any surprise by the enemy, and
my men were abundantly supplied with wine and
meat;and, while they made themselves comfortable
outside, I found myself in Paradise, between two
beautiful and amiable females, opposite to a friend
whom I had not seen for a long time and before a
glass of exquisite tokay. All weariness vanished,
and we joked and laughed half the night, forget
ting the war, and Kossuth, and national hatred.
"Two days I rested in St 's mansion, as a lit
tle respite was highly desirable for both men and
horses. The eyes of the Countess Helena began
to be dangerous for me ; but upon earth the soldier
has no abiding quarters. On the third morning
with a tear in my eye, I pressed St to my
breast, kissed the cheek of his wife and sister, the
latter plucked a rose bud for me as a keepsake,
my trumpeter sounded to horse, and away we
When next they meet it is under different cir
"We had as we so often have had a serious
engagement with the Magyars, in which there were,
on both sides, at least ten or twelve thousand men
in the fire. On this occassion the enemy ao-ain
had numerous and excellent light cavalry, and had
the skill to employ it on ground favorable for him
self, so that our infantry was repeatedly exposed
to the most violent attacks, and had the greatest
dfficulties to ward them off.
"Two snuauro-i ,n particular, of very well organ-
'iCu and equipped Honvods, distinguished them
selves by their furious charges on Crotian infantry
buttallions, and could at last not be compelled to
retreat but by several discharges of grape, which
made dreadful havoc in their ranks.
The leader of the corps, a man of tall, elegant fig
ure, in the rich dress of a magnate, mounted on a
superb, spirited, gray stallion, which he managed
with great dexterity, was indefatigable in rallying
his men, and leading them back against our infan
try. He galloped to and fro with. as much uncon
cern as if the balls whizing around him were but
snow, flourishing his glistening blade.
'The figure of the rider seemed to be well known
to me ; but I could not distinguish his features, as
we were drawn up in the rear of our column of in
fantry, at the distance of some hundred paces from
"Twice he had escaped unhurt the fire of our in
fantry ; when, as I have already mentioned, some
guns, which had in the meanwhile come up, began
to fire with grape. He seemed not to heed the
first discharge, for I saw him still brisk and anima
ted as ever, galloping about at the head of his men.
The second must have been directed better; for,
when the smoke cleared off, I could perceive horse
and rider on the ground,
"At the same moment we received the signal
for charging. The ranks of our infantry sudden'
ly opened to let us pass through.and we advanced
at full gallop upon the enemy's horse. These at
once retired precipitately, to get beyond the range
of our cannon, then rallied, and drove us back ; we
did the same by them ; and so we went on, till at
length, as it is usual in Hungary, the whole dis
solved into single combats, in which man is engaged
hand in hand with man,
"It was nearly dark when, with my troop, some
of whom were killed, others severely wounded, I
reached the main body. Scarcely had We unsad
dleed, and, tired to death, I was about to stretch
myself by the watch-fire, fed with tbc ruins of
houses which had been pulled down, when
an infantry soldier, appointed to hospital duty, came
to inform me that an officer of the insurgents,
dangerously wounded, and taken prisoner, having
heard my name, wished to speak to me.
"In spite of weariness, I immediately followed
my guide to the hurdle-shed, which was fitted up
for a hospital. Dismal was the appearance of this
dark, low place, scantily lighted by the band-lanterns
of the surgeons and attendants, who, with
their blood-striped sleeves tucked up high, and
with aprons equally bloody, were busily engaged.
The wounded lay close to one another, upon dirty
straw, which in places was quite wet and slippery
from the blood upon it. Loud and gentle sighs,
moans, groans, gnashing of teeth, mingled at times
with curses in the Bohemian, Polish, Hungarian,
German and Crotian languages. I waa obliged to
rally my courage, lest I should be scared back.
"In the furthest corner of the long building, on
a bed of straw, lav the wounded Drisoner who wish-
of Led to speak to me. How was I shocked when the
light ot that attendants lantern fell upon ins face,
and I recognized Count St !
"On our march through Crotia to Vienna, I had'
passed two days at his mansion ; had seen him in
the society of two charming women his wife and
sister in the full enjoyment of happiness ; and now,
in what a state was I doomed to find bim! St
, a Magyar to the inmost fibre of. his heart,
had indeed told me he should take up arms for
Kossuth ; but thus to meet him again I was not at
all prepared, ' ' ? ' , T
"Keeling by the side of my pale friend, whose
noble countenance bore the evident impress of
speedy death, I grasped his cold hand, and asked
in what way I could be serviceable to him. 'Thank
you for coming,' he replied, in a voice scarcely au
dible, and this effort manifestly caused him great
pain; I heard that you were here, and I sent for
you. I am dying: my chest is shattered. When
I am dead, take the pocket book out of my uniform
and send it to my wife, who lives at K ; it Con
tains my will and other papers.'
"Here he made a long pause, during which I
strove to cheer him.
" 'Don't talk thus 'tis of no use we part as
friends I have fought for my country jou are
faithful to your colors."
"I pressed his hand in silence.
"'Where is your sister Helene?' I at length
" 'With the army,' he answered ; 'she is fighting
"It was now a considerable time before St-
could utter a word. He moaned gently : and a
regimental surgeon, who came, to us, significantly
made the sign of the cross with his finger.
"At length, after a full hour, he suddenly raised
himself and said, 'So now 'tis all over; salute Ma
rie (the name of his wife) Marie ! and with that
be stretched himself out, his eye-strings broke, and
his spirit fled."
The tragedy concludes with the fate of the love
ly sister of his host, who, like any a Polish victim
of the fair sex, had braved danger in her country's
"Satisfied on this point, I set out, with my two
attendants, on my return to the watch-fire, the tall
flame of which flared upcheeringly before us, when
the moon shining tolerably bright, we perceived a
human figure lying at the foot of a tree.
"We went nearer it was a woman, dressed as
a man, in the costnme of a Hungarian magnate;
the long hair which fell over her shoulders betray
ed her sex. My serassans turned her around; and
by the pale moonbeams I recognized Helene, the
lovely sister of my friend St . Inexpressible
anguish thrilled meat that moment, and I was well
nigh throwing myself upon tho corpse.
"Forcibly mustering my spirits, I ordered my
men to carry the body to the fire. There we ex
amined it more closely, and with extreme anxiety
I sought to ascertain whether there was any hope
of reviving her. Vain hope ! it was several hours
since her spirit had departed ; the ball of one of
our riflemen had gone through her heart From
the small red wound the blood was still oozing in
single drops, which I carefully caught in my hand
kercheif, to be preserved as a relic.
"My only consolation was that the deceased could
not have suffered long; that she must have expired
the very moment that she was struck. 1 hose pure
noble still wondeous beautiful features on her
brow dwelt peace and composure, and the lips al
most smiled : I here she lav as if in tranquil slum
ber; and yet those eyes were never more to open
those ;p8 uevcr more to utter noble sentiments
or words of kindness.
"My hussars were visibly affected, and thought
it a pity that one so young and so bautiful should
die so early. Many of them who had been with
me on our hrst march through Hungary, lor two
days together at St 's mansion, instantly recog
nized Helene, and doubly lamented her death, be
cause she had shown such kindness to them.
"We thawed by a fire the ground not far from
a maple tree, and were employed nearly the whole
night in digging a large deep grave with our hand
bills and swords. By the time the first rays of
dawn appeared, we had finished: a huzzar, who
could do carpenter's work, having meanwhile made
a simple cross out of the Sterns of two young white
"The corpse, in full uniform- the kolpack, with
plume of glistening heron's feathers, on the head,
the light turfcish sabre by her sidewas then care
fully wrapped in a clean, large blanket, which we
had with us, and so deposited in the grave, which
we filled up again with earth. Then, regardless
of caution, I had a full salute fired with pistols
over the grave. I have preserved a small gold
ring apd a lock of her hair for a memorial When
our melancholy business was finished, we moved
off after the enemy, who retreated rather hastily.

dole, which is only designed perhaps to illustrate
the striking characteristics of Fanny Ellsier, but
the details of which are worth relating:
On board a vessel which was making sai for
Germany, the illustrous dancer recognized under
the garb of a sailor, a gentleman otherwise, fasti
dious about his person, who during the season had
pierced her with his looks, overwhelmed her with
his sighs. .
Thus discovered the gallant .threw himself at
the feet of the inimitable dancer and prayed her,
in the name of love, to pardon the tv4e which his
wild passjprr Jd suggested to him. He war in
spired, tender, eloquent, and Fanny,-in taking leave
of him, cursed probably in her heart,- this barbarous
virtue, which is the torture of woman in general
and of dancers in particular.
Having entered into her cabin, she was begin- ,
ninjj to sleep to the pitching of the vessel, when
suddenly she felt a burning breath glide over her
brow. At the same moment, words of love escap--ing
from his lips seemed to inflame the atmosphere
then, a rash hand insinuated itself under the pillow
of the dancer and searched for a little bronzed bo,
in which she usually stored her diamonds1, her gcid
and her bank notes.
Enlightened as to the veritable intentions of the
unknown, the intrepid Fanny by a sublime move
ment of immodesty, cast off the coverlid, piit forth
energetically from the bed her divine leg, and
treated the hidividal to vigorous kick in the Stom
ach, Which leveled him with the floor, and brought
the blood gushing, from his mouth.
