j Autobiography of a rag.
I was born at the New York mills. My
earliest recollection is ot being made into a
garment for a beautiful' joung lad I was
men new and fresh. I nave no time to re-
ate the various vicissitudes of my life from
that time to the present. After going through
a great man bard rubs from which I al
ways came nt cleaner ' and whiter than I
went in I was at last ungratefully thrown
aside, as all worn out things are, from friends
to overshoes. . Huddled up with a large
number of fellow rags, we were ingloriousl
crammed into a foul smelling bag, by the
chambermaid a young lad, who wore ear
rings and a pink merino polka, and who al
ways made-, up the beds in full toilet. She
gave me to the cook, who sold us to a rag
man for 15 cents, with which she bought two
yards and a half of red ribbon to wear at the
Grand Annual ball.. ' '
But now the most remarkable portion of
my singular career is coming. Just two
weeks from the day we were thrown into a
heap In one corner of a paper warehouse, I
and my companions fodnd ourselves ground
up, transmuted, and brought before the world
in a new and fresher form than ever we
were made into paper upon which the Tran
script was printed! . Yes! In one fortnight
rom the, time I was ungratefully thrown
aside by my mistress, I was again brought to
her in my new shape, and for ah hour held
her in breathless attention, while . she read
the beautiful : thoughts and fancies stamped
upon m snowy surface. This was revenge
enough, and honor enough for the poor de
spised rag. Albany Transcript.

. iCPThe following are the concluding
paragraphs of a speech delivered by ' the
Hon. Edward Everett, late Secretary ' of
State of the United States, at ' the Pilgrim
Celebration on the 1st of August. This was
the anniversary of the embarkation of the
, 0 t
Pilgrim Fathers at Delft Haven, io 1620
There are two Master ideas greatest of
the spiritual images enthroned in the mind of
man, the only ones comparatively speamng
which deserve a name among men, springs o
all the grand beneficent movements of modern
limes, bv whose influence the settlement of
New England may be rationally explained.
You have anticipated me, descendants of the
Pilgrims. ; these great Ideas are Goo ane
Liberty. It was these that inspired our
Fathers, hv these that their weakness was
clothed with power, that their simplicity was
transmuted to wisdom; by these that the great
miracle of their enterprise was wrought
: I am aware that to' ascribe such a result,
even in oart. to the influence of religion, wil
sound like weakness and superstition in this
material age; an age at once supremely
skentical and supremely credulous, "which is
ready to believe in everything spiritual rather
than God. and admits all marvels, but the in-
teroosition of his providence; an age which
supposes it a thing of every day's occurrence
to evoke irom meir awiui rest tne spimo ui
the great and good, and believes that master
intellects, which while they lived obstructed
with these organs of sense ravished the ears
with " the tongues of men
and hare now
cast off" this nnrddr Testara of decay,
gone'w&re they speafc wifl truest of
wniftta. r.an( Vef find no medium of conrmtf-
nication from the eternal wotld but wretchedi
inarticulate rappings and clatterings, which
pot-house clowns would be ashamed to use in
their intercourse with each other as if our
matchless Choate, lor instance, who has just
electrified the land with a burst of eloquence
not easily paralleled in the line of time, if
sent with a message from a higher stage of
being, would come skulking and rapping be
hind the wainscot, instead of coming in robes
of light, with a voice like the music of the
spheres; an age, I say, that believes all this
and yet doubts and sneers at. the wonder
working fervor of earnest men, swayed by

It believes, yes, in the middle of the nine

the attraction of gravitation, which holds the
universe together, suspended by a showman

round the room by an act of volition, (forget
ful ot the fact, that if the law of gravitation
were suspended for the twinkling of an eye,
by any other rower than that which ordained
it, every planet that walks the firmament, yea
all the starry suns centres of the countless
systems, unseen of mortal eyes, which nil

Mr.; President, this, may sound like phi-
osophy, but it is the philosophy of the Sad-
ducee. It quenches the brightest glory of
our nature. Ihe Pilgrims were actuated by
that principle, which (as I have just said) has
given the first impulse to all the great move
ments of the modern world I, mean profound
religious faith. . 1 hey had the frailties of hu
manity.' Tli is exalted principle itself was
combined with human weakness. It was
mingled with the - prejudices and errors of
age, and country, and sect; it was habitually
gloomy; it was sometimes intolerant; but it
was reverent, sincere, all controlling. - It
did not influence, it possessed the soul.- It
steeled the heart to the delights of life: it
raised the frame above bodily weakness; it
enabled the humble to brave the frowns of!
power; it triumphed over cold and hunger,
the prison and the scaffold; it taught unedu
cated men to speak with persuasive fervor; it
gave manly strength and courage to tender
and delicate women. In the admirable letter
of Robinson and Brewster whom I call
great men," Mri fresident written to Sn
Edwyn Sandys in 1CI7, whom, they patheti
ically say,- under uod above all persons
and things, in the .world we rely upon,
among the suggestions which they make to
encourage him to further their undertaking is
We do verily believe and trust that the
Lord is with us, unto whom and whose ser
vice we have given ourselves in many trials,
and that he will graciously prosper our en
deavors, according to the s mplicity of our
hearts.' : ! '
The men who can otter these words with
sincerity, and who have embarked in a just
cause, have already succeeded, ibey may
not gather the fruit, but they have planted
the seed; others .may build, but they have
laid the foundation. . This is the spirit which
in all ages has wrought the moral miracles of
humanity; which rebuked and overturned the
elegant corruption of the classical polytheism,
as it did the darker and fiercer rites of Thor
and '' Woden: which drove back the false
and licentious crescent into Asia, and held
Europe together through the night of. the
middle ages; which .limited neither to coun
try. ' communion or sex, despite1 of human
weakness and errors, in the missions ol 1 ara

faith and love. - '
But, sir, our fathers embraced that second
grand idea of Civic Liberty, with not less
fervor than the first, it was a kindred fruit
of the same stock. : They cherished with a
zeal . not less intense and resolute. This is a
topic for a column, rather than for the closing
sentence of a speech at the. dinner table. 1
will only say that the highest authorities in
English history Hume, tlallam, Macaulay
neither of them influenced by sympathy
with the Puritans' concur in the opinion that
England was indebted to them for the pre
servation of her liberties in that, most critical
period of her national existence, when the
question between prerogative and law, abso
lute authority and constitutional government,
was decided forevr. J - ''' ! '
In coming to this country, our fathers most
certainly contemplated not merely a safe re
treat beyond the sea, where they could worship
. . . . , . . i
God according to ine aiciaies ;oi meirown
conscience, but a local government found
ed on popular choice. .That their foresight
stretched onward through the successive
staes'of colonial and provincial government
which resulted in the . establishment' o f a
great republican confederacy, it would be ex
travagant to pretend, but from the ' primi
tive and venerable compact signed on board
the Mavflower. while she . yet nestled in the
mhracV nf Provincetown- harbor.' after her
desolate voyage like a weary child at evening
in its mother's arms, through every docu
ment and manifesto which bears on the ques
tion, there is a distinct indication of a pur
pose to establish civil government on the ba-
lean ennalifv and nopO'lar choice.
In a word, Mr. President; their political
code united religion and liberty, morals and
Uw: and it differed from the wild license
which breaks away from these restraints, as

mechanical life, conducted by a bold but skif-
ful and prudent hand, ana propeiiea lnsaieiy

its shrieking train into the jaws destruction.

"In the town of Plymouth, this State, there
is. a hotel which has long been kept without
any medicine.' ' During the tip-going travel
to the White Mountains last summer, a gen
tleman stopped at this hotel, one who was
not going up altogether for a look at nature'
grandest scenes, or a draught of cold water
from the mighty alembics of Argenecook.
He sent from his rooms for a bottle of tiar-
dolph'o 'best wine,' to which summons the
landlord replied that he kept no wine. The
answer brought the gentleman himself down."

Don t keep liquors! How in the name

ellers without it? I want some, and I bad a
right to expect that you kept it.' I shall tell

Honolulu, May 19, 1S53. $
Mr. Editor. I will here give yon an a"c- "
count of the loss of the ship Susan of Nan
tucket, in the ice, off Company's island, the'
particulars of which are as follows: ;
Tuesday, April 26, commenced with brisk
breezes at S., course N., at 1 a. m. scatter
ing pieces of ice, shortened sail and steered
to avoid coming in contact. . At 3 a. m. sur
rounded by ice. A heavy squall from south.
At 4 a. if. cleared the ice and steered so asr
to avoid it as much ' as possible. 10 a. m.
calm, with fog and rain; ranch to my sur
prise I now saw the land bearing N. W.,
distant, 25 miles. At Z r. M., the wind si
south, blowing fresh, with thick weather and
rain, lice in all directions which gave us con
stant employment at working ship to avoid.
6 r. m. the wind at south, having increased
to a moderate gale with a very heavy swell;
the land now in sight bearing north, 15 miles
distant, the wind, swells, rod ice fast forcing
us towards the shore. Steered east, under
short sail 2 hours, when the ice closed on alt
sides, leaving no chance to escape, and soon
after the ship was wedged firmly; the : wind
had now increased to a heavy gale, with a
swell so heavy as to cause; the ship to roll1
nearly plankshire under; the ice being Irom
8 to 9 feet in height above the water, handed
al! sail. At before II r. m. a heavy body
of ice struck under the 'starboard quarter
with such force as to crush the plank and
timbers, strewing the cabin with the wreck i
No water being at this time visible from the'
deck. Called all hands to the ' pumps, the
ship fast filling with water. Set the fore and
main top and top gallant sail, hoping to force
the ship before the gale and sea into clear
water before she should become unmanage
able. ,. . . ,
Wednesday, April 27. At 4 a. m. the ship'
forcing her way through the ice slowly, un-'
derthe presure of sail then set; pumps con
stantly in ' motion.' Hove overboard what
ever came to hand. Water nearlynp to the'
lower deck. At 5 a. m. water 2 feet between?
decks. ' Left the pumps and made prepara
tions for leaving the wreck. . There now be',
ing a small space of open sea, the gala hav
ing abated and changed to west, lowered, the
boats from tbe cranes, three in number; the'
ice however soon took them from us, and six
men by which, they . were manned, one was
drowned, the others succeeded in getting ori
the ice. Tbe ship being now nearly full of
water, cut away the main and mizen masts,
to prevent her capsizing.' - The foremast we'
hoped to be able to save for farther ose, a
there remained one more barrier of ice be
tween us and the open sea. In thiat we were;
mistaken, as she soon gave signs' not easily
misunderstood that the foremast must share'
the fate of the others; it was soon cut away
and fell into . the sea, in doing which, one'
more boat was lost,- which now left bnt fwtf.
At 5 a. m launched one boat over the raifirf
which 6 men barely escaped being crashed
with tbe ice. : Preparations were now made
to launch the only remaining boat, ra which1
were placed 2 chronometers, some clothing
and other necessary articles; but unfbrto'
nately the boat got stove in several place,
and the articles in her all lost. Sbe was then
hauled in and repaired, as wefl as possible,
under existing circumstances, i' When the'
other boat was launched, or very soon after,
the ice closed on all sides of the wreck, to
as to prevent tbe boat from coming nearer
than 100 yards, and so continued till I r. M.,
when tbe stoven boat nai beer repaired,
another attempt was made to get her clear of
the wreck, in doing" which, she was again
stove, sunk and capsised. Sbe was then
hooked to the larboard davit tackles, bailed
out, hoisted up and again repaired; and
finally cleared the wreck at 2 r.
. We were now 21 men m two boats, with
the clothes in which we sf ood, ' smd a-few
blankets; 140 lbs. salt meat, 2 nigs of 50 lbs.
each, one of which we lost,) 12 fbs of bread
(well saturated with sail water,) 25 lbs of
flour and about 20 cans . preserved meats,"
with 2 gate, wine and 4 of water: Tb
land distant 40' miles, not in sight, ttterta
west by north 6 miles, along the ice barrier,
when we saw one of. the men' Tost at 5 a.
with the boats taken away byjfec ice took
him oo board. After half an kesr saw three?
more, who reported that one tiJ ed oo the
ice. 1 We were numbered in all 25 men, with?
the articles heretofore nYenf toned, rtf two
boats, one of which kept three men constant
ly bailing; the wind now light at south, teer
ing west by north. Unfortunately we' had
lost our sails in' the boats in the morning;
therefore conld not take advantage of the?
favorable breeze. We continued oar Course
till 0 f. X. when the land wasseerl ti'.iliihrg
from west south' west td esfst irotCt efst, dis
tant 25 miles; steered tfettlr west till dark,
wh'eri Bfeetrn hh rmfefrtee, lay by till day
light. ' ' . 7
