CITY OP BVAWSVILLD:- -
FRIDAY MORNING,.-? :::APRIL 8.
Our nails.
The public have heretofore had little cause
t- complain of mail irregularities, tince the
. establishment of the full line of boats be
tween Louisville and St. Louts, until qu ts
recently. Within the 'ast two weeks three
Eastern mtils hare been carried past this
place, and from the best information we can
obtain, the failures hare been owing to. gross
negligence on the part of mail agents. It is
not to be expected that our business men,
'who are in daily correspondence with almost
erery Eastern city, from Louisville to Boston,
will remain'quiet under such vexatious mail
delinquencies. There is a fault somewhere,
and a criminal dereliction of duty, at the ex
pense ot the public, who receive their mail
accommodations at the Eransville office.'
N piiir elitiri tin sYtra thY incon
Tcnience of these failures, perhsps to a
greater extent than any other class, yet we
hive kept our equilibrium, until complaints
of mail failures became so frequent, that we
feel it to be ' i ur duty as 'journalist s to call
attention to those matters. '
The boats of which complaints are made,
are the Clifton, Telegraph and Gen.' Pike.
The latter boat passe 1 here yesterday morn
ing at the usual time. Our postmaster was
at the wharf in wailing to receive the mail,
but no mail bag or. agent appeared. ' The
agent was reported to hare been closely
wrapped in the arms of Morpheus, and of
course had forirotten the oath he . had taken
to deliver the mails properly at this place.
If there are any Whig agents yet in office, or
bogus Democrats who are so grossly negli
gent of their duties, we hope they will be
speedily removed. We want our mails reyu
lar, and according to the new arrangement
we are entitled to them, and we shall con
tinue to exercise the privilege to complain
on behalf of ourselves and the public, when
we don't get them, always ready to hear and
publish any excuse or extenuating circum
stance which oar mail agents may offer.

The fine steamer A. L. Shotwell pissed
this city night before last from Ne w Orleans,
and we regret to learn from a gentleman swho
arrived on her that she was making a very
unprofitable trip," and bad but little freight
and few passengers. The Eclipse. Marv
Hunt, and R. J. Ward, we are al.o crediuly
informed, made from one to three thousand
dollars each, osrr the left, on. their last trips.
This has been a bad year for fine steamboats,
owing to the exceeding low price of freights,
particularly down freights, and the enormous
expenses ttendingthe running of that class
of boats. The above named crafts have been
built at great expense, and no pains have
been spared to mike them comfortable to the
traveler; they are also owned and command;
ed by first-rate gentlemen who deserve to
succeed, which we hope they will in "the
good time coming."

sections had at work nearly an equal number
of men, one composed mostly of Irish, the
other principally of German laborers. The
cause of the fiht originated on St. Patrick's
day, in consequence of the German overseers
refusing to allow some of their Irish hbcrers
to celebrate the day. The result of the me

dulled noses, and a few' broken limbs; two

there, since the State has been thrown into

railway monopoly, which has rested, like an
incubus, on the prosperity of the State for so
many years:
We are of opinion that very few members
of the Legislature from any quarter were

THE DEATH WHESTLC.
A deadly feud subsisted, almost from time
immorial. between the families of Zl'Pherson,
of Bendearg, and Grant, of Cairo, and was
banded down "unimpaired" even to tne ciose
a a - t .a 1
of the Isst cenUry. In earlier time the war"
like chiefs of these names found frequent op
portunities of testifying their mutual anion
ity; and few inheritors of that fatal- quarrel
left the - world without having raotsteired if
with the blood of their hereditary enemies.
But in our own day the progress of civiliza
tion, which had reached even these wild
countries the heart of the North Highland
ersalthough it could not extinguish entirely
the transmitted spirit of revenge t least kept
it within safe bouuds, and the feuds of Mc
Phersoa and Grant threatened, in the course
of another generation, to die entirely away,
or, at least, to exist only in some vexatious
ldw suit; fostered by the petty jealousies of
two men of hostile tempers and contiguous
property.
It was not, however, without some ebulli
tions of ancient fierceness that the flame
which had burned for so many centuries
seemed about to expire. Cnce at a. meettng
of the country gentlemen, a question f privi
lege arising, Bendearg took occasisn to throw
öuts ome taunts aimed at his hereditary foe,1
which the firery Grant immediately received
as the signal of defiance, and a challenge
was the consequence. The sheriff of the
countVi however, having received .intimation
of th affair, placed both patties under ar-
rest; till at! length, by the persuasion of

L. f,ok hands .nd each nledireV honor to for
eet at least never again to remember in

family. This occurence at the time was the
object of much interest in the "country-side,"

tne prophecies, of which many a highland fam
i!v has an ample stock in its traditionary
chronicles, and which expressly predicted
that enmity of Cairn and Bendearg should
only be quenched in blood; and on thisseem-
inr?lr t crcss-erained cirturottance' f ome of
the youn men who had beun to be tainted
with the heresies of the lowlands, were seen
to shake their heads as they reflected on the
tales and the faith of their ancestors; but the
grey-l aired seers shook theirs still more wise
ly, and answered, with the motto of a noble
"I bide mvtimfe."
There is a narrow pass between two moun
tains in the neighborhood of Bendearg, well
known to the travelers who adventure into
these wilds n quest of the savage sublimities
of nature . At a little distance it has the ap
pearance of an immense artificial bridge
thrown over a wide chasm; but on a nearer
approach, is seen to be a wall of nature's

.A a a ..a a
One day, shortly alter the incident above
mentioned, a highlander was walking fear
lessly down the pass, sometimes bending
over to watch the flight of the wild birds that
built below, and sometimes detatching a frag
ment from the top to see it dash against the
uneven bides, anu bounding from rock to rock
its sound echoing the while like a human
voice, and dying in faint and hollow murmurs
at the bottom. When the highlander bad
gained the loftiest, part of the arch, he ob
served another person coming leisurely from
the opposite side, and being himsi If of the pat-
riciai? order, called out to him to lie down;
the individual, however, disregarded the com
mand, and the highlanders met face to face
on the summit. Tney were Cairn and Ben
dearg; the two hereditary enemies, who would
have gloried to have met in mortal strife on a
hill side turned deadly pale at this fatal ren
contre. ,
I was first at the top," said Bendearg, "and
called out; .lie down, that I may pass over in
peace."
When the Grant prostrates himself before
M'Pherson," answered the other, "it must be
with a sword driven through bis body.'
"Turn back, then," aaid Bendearg, "and
repass as you came." "
"Go back yourself if you like it; I will not
be the hrst to turn before a M Pherson."
This was their short conference, and the
result exactly as such had anticipated. They
then threw their bonnets over the precipice,
and advanced with a slow and cautious pace
towards each other, they were both unarmed.
stretching their limbs like men preparing
for a desperate struggle, they planted their

classed with the male or female sex. His best
qualities are those which he possesses in com
mon with certain kind of dogs to fetch and

the fool, may not object to the attentions of
the servant, and so out of sheer commiseration
allow him to carry a fan, or escort-them to the

not accessible. The ladie's man is sufficient
ly rewarded for attending them through ä

only drop a smile into the poor fellow's hat at
parting. With this substantial blessing he is
encouraged to future exertion in this wide
field of masculine ambition.
If a man's duty to a lady consisted in pick
ing up dropped pocket-handkerchiefs and fans
or twihng her round, to the point of giddiness
and exhaustion, in the waltz, we shoul I, per
haps, envy the accomplishments of the mere
ladies' man; but, believing, as we do, that tre
delightful and liveable drpendance of woman
upon the sterner sex demands the exercise of
more manly qual ties for the effeminate ac
complishments of the other.
To treat a woman like a doll only to pre
sent to her mind the gaseous eructations of
false sentiment,' or the frothy nonsense of

CjWe like to give our readers all the
light v?e have on the "Flying Ship," aud
with that view we copy the following ac
counts of its first trial from the Washington
papers:'
The Flyiko Ship. The inventor of the
acroport, Mr. Rufus Porter, gave two even
ings last week (Friday and Saturday) to a
public exhibition of his plan for aerial loco
motion, illustrating it by a model or minis
ture float, or ma n supporter, of 23 feet long,
and 7 or 8 feet through the middle section.
and a suspended car containing a diminutive
but successfully working steam "engine,
whose duty it is to furnish power for the gut
dance of the machine. The total weight of
the matter of the model is fi'teeu pounds.
The machine sailed aroutid tne room, evi
dentiy guided by th propellers of the sus
pended car. ' Whether it would be possible
to maintain a course not immediately be
fore the wind In the open air is. a question
we think fairly open, as is also the fitness of
the shape of the float to encounter the ide
pressure of an untoward breeze.. The exhi
bition will be repeated under more favorable
circumstances this week.
The iEroport was again exhibited by Mr.

paddling its way' in any direction by steam
power, according to the dictates of its own
helm, tend to strengthen the hope that the
untirin projector of this means of atrial navi
gation may succeed in bringing it to a prac
tical result. Mr. Porter seems to be san
guine that a machine on thispr.ncjple can be
constructed, capable of making two trips to
California and back in the course of a week,
carrying two hundred passengers, thus, at one

A Eutoarr
A humorous friend of ours from the South
(whose "favors we respectfully solicit) men
tioned the other day a funeral sermon which
he heard in North Carolina not long since,
that set even our associate Owl a-winking.
Parson S , a rather eccentric character
was called upon to "preach the funeral" of a
bard case named Rann, which he did in the
following style- "My belored brethren and
sistern if our departed brother would a-wan-ted
somebody to tell lies about him, and make
him out a better man than he was, he
would'nt a-chosen me to preach his funeral.
No, my brethren, he w at: ted to - be held up
as a burnin'. and shinin' light to warn yoa
from tho error of your ways. He kept hor
ses' and he run'd era; he kept chickens, and
hefou'tem; he kept women, and there sits
his widow.who can prore it, . The widow
sat directly in front of the pulpit, and here
gave an affirmatory nod. Our dear departed
brother had many warnins brethren. - i oe
rst warnin' was when he broke his leg, but
hetill went on in the error of bis ways.
The second wamin was when his son Pete
ung himself in jail; and the last and great
est warnin' of ull was when he died himself.
The preacher then enlarged on these topics
until he had sunk Rann so low that hi hear
ers began to doubt whether he would ever
get him up again, and, as is usual in "funer
als," land him safely in Abraham's boson.
Thiswas the object of the second part of
he sermon, started off thus: My brethren,
there'll be great mericals, grtat mericals, in
ieaven. And the hrst mencal will be, that
many of you expect to find there you won't
see there. The people that go round with
ong faces, roakin' long prayers, won't be
there; and the second meracle will be that
many you don't expect to find there, as some
peh ps won't expect to find our dear depar
ted Rann, you'll find there; and the last and
greatest meracle will be to find yourselves
there." M There is not one single word of ex
aggeration," said the narrator, "in it." It
is a literal transcript. KnicJierbocker.
Secretary Csrwin'i Advice to an Ap
plicant for Office.
The Washington correspondent of the
Philadelphia North American says that about
three years ago a young man presented him
self to Mr. Corwin for a clerkship. Thrice
was he refused, and still he made a fourth ef
fort. His perseverance and spirit of deter
mination awskened a friendly interest in his
welfare, and the Secretary advised him, in the
strongest possible terms, to abandon his pur
pose and go to the West, if he could do no
better outside , the Department. "My young
friend," said be, "goto the Northwest, buy
160 acres government land or if you have
not the money to purchase squat on it; get
you an axe and a mattock; put up a log cabin
tor you habitation; and raise a little corn and
potatoes; keep your conscience clear, and
live like a freeman; your own master, with no
one to give you orders, and without depen
dence upon any body. Do that, and you will
become honored, respected, influential, and
rich. .Bn accept a clerkship here, and you
ink at once all independence; your energies
become relaxed, and you are unfitted in a
few years for any other and more independent
position. 1 may give you a place to-day, and
lean kick you out again, to-morrow; and
there's another man over there at the White
House who ran kick tne out, and the people
by-and-by can kick him out: and so we so.
uui ii you own an acre ot land, it is your
kingdom; and your cabin is your castle y?u
are a sovereign, and you will feel it in every
throbbing ol your pulse, and every diy of your
life will assure me of your thanks for having
thus advised you."
The Lakcuage of Jot a d Sorrow. We
seem to be better acquainted with the mis
eries than with the happiness of life. This
is ehadowed forth by the fact, that in at least
the English language the words to express
what is good and pleasureable are fewer by
a great deal than these for the bad and pain
ful. We hive colors to paint every stage
of woe; let the crime be the blackest, we
can tell of the very les. But to tell of the
varying lights ot piea.-ure, and an the win
ning way of goodness, we are wholly at i
loss; and the most we can say of the great
est goodness is, that there is an unknown,
indiscribab'.e charm about it: the most we
can say of : the highest bliss, that it is un
utterable. Dallas's Poetics.
