A youth came a wooing a maiden so fair.
As gentle ami true as a dove : ,
To his words of ailecliou slic’d always reply

He kissed her and bade her good night,
She kissed in return and thought it no harm;
But ma said she’d not acted right.
“ Tell me why, then, dear ma, have you said
This doctrine is holy and true:
To do unto all men, in every respect.
As you would they should do uulo you. ’
“But if of my favors "too lavish I’vejbeen,’'
She said in half petulant sorrow,
“ I’m sore that my love will with pleasure return
My kiss back again on the morrow.’
" You know that my Bible, with profit I’ve read,
And its doctrines I firm!}- believe,
And there it is written in characters plain,
“ ’Tis more blessod to give than receive.’ ”

The HuUnuauu Correspondence.
The following rcsnmt of Secretary Marcy’s
letter to the Chevalier Hulsemann, in relation to
the Koszla affair, is from the New York corres
pondence of the Alta California:
The Chevalier Hulsemaua has run against a
snag, and is “ used up.” Austria is unfortunate
in her encounters with our statesmen, and the
•• Austriches,” as good dame Partington calls
them, have got a “ cud to chew,” which will
prove quite as difficult of digestion as sword
blades, grape-shot, or rusty nails. The admin
istration is out with its reply to the Austrian de
mand for “ satisfactory apology and disavowal,”
and “ severe rebuke” of our agents in the Koszla
affair. The topic of the day is Secretary Marcy’s
letter to the Chevalier, and the sense of the
country at large : Whigs, Democrats, and neu
trals. with regard to the document, may be char
acterized by one huge note of admiration !
Henceforth be Marcy’s political peccadilloes
forgotten. Even the “breeches patch” is for
evercovered and blotted out by the whole cloth
of this paper, and it will go far towards supply
ing him with an entire new pair, wherewithal
some day to take Ills seat as a Democratic Pre
sident of this Republic.
Although his weapon has not the trenchant
keenness of the Massachusetts Warrior, “ Black
Dan’s” feather-edged cimetar, AJarcy neverthe
less deals bis blows “from the shoulder,” and
Hiilsemnnn is again annihilated. He has “ taken
nothing by his motion” of waiting Webster’s
decease Before be returned to this country. The
Secretary’s letter is an able paper, cogent, logi
cal, and clear. lie opens with a succinct,
straightforward recapitulation of all the circum
stances of the Koszta affair ; and then, taking up
Austria’s demand, reviews step by step the
whole matter, unqualifiedly sustaining the action
of Capt. Ingraham and our diplomatic agents
He shows that the affair is to be judged entirely
by the principles of the Law ol Nations, and not
by municipal or local codes: that Koszta’s alle
giance to Austria was dissolved by the Empe
ror’s own act, in having, by the presence of an
agent at the departure of the refugees from Tur
key, practically sanctioned a sentence of banish
ment, accepting the same as n substitute for Koszta’s
surrender, which had previously been demanded;
and in having, under the charge of rebellion,
escheated his property, and forfeited him of his
civil rights. Austria could, therefore, under no
circumstances, claim him as her subject. That
Koszta had, by a residence here of nearly two
years, and by bis solemn declaration of intended
citizenship, “acquired a domicil,” and been
“clothed with the nationality” of the United
States, and that, therefore, both by right and
usage, although ho was not yet endowed with
all the rights of a citizen of the United States, it
was optional with them to extend to him their
protection while abroad on temporary business,
as was the case on bis visit to Turkey. That
such protection had been properly extended by
our Minister at Constantinople, and our Consul
at Smyrna, under sanction of the Turkish laws.
That Capt. Ingraham's “ war-making” course
must be judged w i lt the animus which governed,
and the circumstances which induced it ; that, so
Judged, it was not au act of hostility per se, nor
it declaration of war de facto . hut a simple act ol
humanity iu defence of one entitled to the safe
guard of his flag, and standing, through the vio
lence of others. in pressing need of prompt and
peremptory aid. That, therefore, by the Law
of Nations, Capt. Ingraham’s course was justifi
able, and is hilly justified and endorsed by bis
Austria’s arraignment of the United States for
“ violating the sovereignity of the Ottoman ter
ritory” is summarily dealt with. She is cooly
told, that even admitting the charge, we admit
no such right of arraignment on her part. But
the charge is not admitted. That Turkey is the
judge on this point; when she complains, we
will afford her every satisfaction and ajiology.
But she does not complain. On the contrary,
the Sultan acquits us, and arraigns Austria her
self as guilty of the very violation which she
presumes to throw iu our teeth. In reply to
ilulsemanu’s averment, that Austria had the
ri"ht to enforce the jurisdiction she attempted,
by “tieily stipulation” with Turkey, Alarcy
savs, “ Why not name the treaty granting such
powers ?” and then shows that the question has
before arisen, and that no such treaty exists. In
conclusion he states, that "the President does
not see sufficient cause for disavowing the acts
of the American agents, which has been com
plained of by Austria. Her claim for satisfac
tion on that account has been carefully examined
and is respectfully declined.” “ The President
also declines to give bis consent to his (Kotza’s)
delivery to the Consul General of Austria at
Smyrna, and communicates bis “ confident ex
pectation that the Emperor of Austria will take
tlu; proper measures to cause Martin Koszta to
be restored to the same condition he was iu be
fore he was seized iu the streets of Smyrna on
the 21sXof June last. The document is care
fully worded, so »s to avoid all cause of offence
by its manner. Its matter is alone sufficient to
humble the pride of the “House nl Hapsburg.”
It remains to he seen how Marcy’s document
will be received by Austria, Will she follow
Nicholas’ advice, to settle with us as quietly as
possible, and avoid all reason for our interfe
rence iu European affairs ? Will she endeavor
to Napoleou to order ilia Consul
General to surrender Kotza to thw Austrian Con
sul? Or will she refuse, point-blank, to verify
the “confident expectation ” of the President,
and seek still further to possess herself of Kosz- 1
la by force 1 In such an event, the ‘ Koszta af
fair’ may cost a trifle more thon she anticipates.
The United States are committed. Uncle Sam’s
“ back is up,” and his “word” is uttered. If,
that fail, his “ blow ” must follow, or he loses
The Vienna correspondent of the London
Timet, under date Sept. 11th, writes:—"lt is
fully expected that the Washington Cabinet will
consent to Martin Koszta’s being delivered up
to the Austrian authorities at Smyrna, that it is
not advisable even to hint that such may not be
the case.” 1 trust the Austrian Government are
busily employed in wishing that they may gel
Ex-Gov Exxon Lane ok New Mexico.—Hut
few persons knew at the time of the appoint
ment of Governor Lane, by President Fillmore,
to the gubernatorial chair of New Mexico, who
the gentleman was: and, at the present time,
when he has so faithfully discharged his duties,
especially in the Mesilla Valley affair, little is
known concerning him previous to his accept
ance of a public position.
Ex-Governor Lane has been for 30 or -10 years
a practising physician in the city of St. Louis,
where he has always enjoyed the confidence
of the community aud a large practise in his
profession. He was the first Mayor of that city,
and did mach to further its inteiests. Under
his administration the first street was macadam
ized, and, on account of this act, he, in common
with his assistants, brought upon himself the ha
tred of the old French inhabitants, who were
the first settlers ol St. Louis while it was yet an
Indian trading post. They objected to the lay
ing of stones in the street on account of the
wear and tear that would ensue to their wood
en wagon wheels, iron ties not being known
amongst them in those days.
In person, Wm. Carr Lane, M. D., is tall and
robust, resembling very much the full length
portraits of Gen. Washington. His hair is sil
very white. He is a man of line colloquial
powers, aud has read and observed a great deal
in the course of his long life—a practical man
possessing sound judgment and firm decision of
He is at this time the American candidate for
Delegate to Congress from New Mexico, in op
position to Padre Gallegos, a suspended priest,
whose only recommendaiions are bis fine figure
aud graceful dancing. The probability seems
to be, that Wm. C. Line will be beaten by the
Padre, on account of the animosity existing
among the Mexican population to anything
American. It is to be hoped that Ex. Gov.
Lane, who so well understands the wants ot
New Mexico, and who is so well qualified to
discharge the duties of a Representative, is not
to be laid on the shelf for so pitiful a being us
the greaser Ex priest Father Gallegru. who, al
though elected to the Territorial House of Rep
resentatives last year, neglected alibis duties in
not attending its sessions.

Affairs is Accapui.co.—Among the passen
gers who came down on the Steamer Panama.
was Dr. Billing, ad interim Consul of the United
States at Accapulco.
From Dr. Billings we learn that the difficulty
between Capt Givens of the schooner B. A. Al
len. the particulars of whose arrest and impris
onment at Accapulco has been partially settled
by the release of Captain G., and the delivery
to him of bis vessel, with a thousand supplica
tions for pardon on the part of the officials.
This was not brought about, however, from any
conviction of error or maltreatment upon then
part. but because the new Minister of the Uni
ted States at Mexico, Col. Gadsen, as soon as
the matter was repor'ed to bin. gave notice at
once to the Supreme Government that he would
stand no humbuggery whatever in the matter;
that Capt, Givens snd bis vessel must be instant
ly released, and reparation made to him by
Mexico for damages of imprisonment and de
tention of vessel. The order for the release of
both the captain and vessel came to Accapulco
by Government express from the city of Mexico.
Panama Star.
CoMMonoRE Vanderbilt and the Pope.—
Commodore Vanderbilt, by a somewhat singu
lar coincidence, arrived in his yacht, the I\orth
Star, at Civita Veechia, just as the discovery of
a supposed Mazziui conspiracy had thrown the
papal government ipto a state of terror. The
police of Civita Veechia, staggered by the im
posing size of the steamer, alid the number of
persons on board, immediately concluded that it
was an American sympaibysing expedition, and
refused the Commodore permission to haul. Af
ter two or three days useless negotiation, the
North Star proceeded to Naples, where —at least
so the newspapers say —she was also an object
of suspicion, and had eventually to seek refuge
at Malta. On the 23d ult., the yacht arrived at
the Bosphorus.
Honest. —A few weeks since a well known
"entleman of this cilv. who is somewhat addic
ted to the use of the ' anient,” was brought be
fore his Honor, the Recorder, upon the charge
of being drunk and disorderly, and making loud
and unusual noises. He answered that it was
true he was drunk, very drunk, but that he
made unusual noises, he could prove to be un
true bv a host of friends who beard him make
the same a hundred limes. He was discharged,
of course.

The combined fiecu of England and France
