[Frnm the Temperance Atlvoci te.J
The distinguished William Wirt, within six
or eight months after his first marriage, became
addicted to intemperance, the effect of which
operated strongly upon the mind and health of
Ins wile, and in a few months more she was
numbered with the dead. Her death led him
to leave the country where lie resided, and
move to Richmond, where bo soon rose to dis
tinction. But bis habits hung about him, and
occasionally he was found in jolly and frolic
some spirits in bachanalian revelry. His true
friend expostulated with him, to convince him
of the injury be was doing himself. But he still
persisted. His practice began to fall off, and
tnany looked upon him as on the sure road to
ruin. He was advised to get married, with a
view of correcting his habits. This bo consent
ed to do, if the right person offered. Ho accord
ingly paid his addresses to a Miss Gamble.—
After some months' attentions, be asked her
hand in marriage. She replied:
"Mr. Wirt, 1 have been well aware of your
intentions for some time back, and should have
given you to understand that your visits and
attentions were riot acceptable, had I not reci
procated the affection which you evinced for
me. But I cannot yield my assent until you
make a pledge never to taste, touch or handle
any intoxicating drinks."
This reply to Mr. Wirt was as unexpected
as it was novel. His ruply was, that he regard
ed the paoposition as a bar to all further con
sideration on tho subject, and left her. Her
course to him was the same as ever—his, re
sentment and neglect. In the course of a few
weeks, he went again, and again solicited her
hand. But her reply was, her mind was made
up. He became indignant and regarded the
terms proposed as insulting to his honor, and
avowed it should be the last meeting tliey
should ever have. Ho took to drinking worse
and worse, and seemed to run headlong to
One day, while lying in the outskirts of the
city, near a little grocery or grog-shop, dead
drunk, a young lady, who it i 9 not necessary to
name, in passing that way to her home, not far
oil', beheld him with his facu upturned to the
rays of a scorching sun. She took her hand
kerchief, with her own name marked upon it,
and placed it over his face. After ho had re
mained in that way for some hours, he was a
wakened, and his thirst being so great, be went
into the little grocery or grog-shop to get a
drink, when ho discovered tho handkerchief,
which he looked at, and the name that was on
it. After pausing a few minutes, ho exclaim
"Great God! who loft this with mo? Who
placed it on my face?" No one knew. He
dropped his glass, exclaiming:
"Enough! enough!"
Ho retired instantly from the grocery, for
getting his thirst, hut not the debauch, tire
handkerchief or the lady—vowing, il'God gave
him strength, never to touch, taste or handle
intoxicating drinks.
To meet Miss G. was the hardest effort of
his life. If he met her in her carriage or on
foot, he would dodge tiie nearest corner. She
at last addressed him a note under her own
band, inviting him to the house, which lie fi
nally gathered courage enough to accept, lie
told her if she still bore affection for him, he
would agree to her own terms. Her reply
"My conditions now are what they ever have
"Then," said the disenthralled Wirt, "I ac
cept thern."
They were soon married, and from that day
he kept Iris word, and his affairs brightened,
while honors and glory gathered thick upon
his brow. His name has been enrolled high in
the tcmplo of fame, while his deeds, the patri
otism and renown, live after him with imperish
able lustre. How many noble minds might the
young ladies save, if they would follow the ex
ample of the heroine-hearted Miss G , the friend
of humanity, of her country, and the relative
( of La Fayette.
THINK OF THAT LADIES. A person who has
been travelling in the Western States says,
there is not a lady west of tho Alleghaniesover

"spoken for."

"Excelsior." The "Gipsy" bonnets are all the
rage in Philadelphia among the fashionables.
respondent of the Charleston Mercury, writing
from New York, gives some incidents of this
terrible disaster which we have not elsewhere
seen in print, lie says:
1 have seen several of those who were on
board at the time of the accident, two of whom
were taken out of the water in an unconscious
state. Ono of them was preserved by climbing
up the post that supports the upper deck, where
he held on to the rim of the deck, begging
those who were above to take hold uf ono of
his wrists, as he could not get over the edge; the
greater number passed him unheeded, but one
j man told him "that lie was dying of cold if not
| by drowning, and that if the young man below
| would procure a cloak which lie pointed out,
] be would help him up."
The young man got the cloak with consid
j erahle difficulty and handed it up. The man
| snatched it and walked ofl'l The boat contin
ued to settle until he could scarcely keep his
| head above water. While in that.situation, lie
; heard the lamentations of a child probably
| about three years old. It was suffering from
I cold. Ho tried to encourage its mother with
the hope of speedy relief, hut in the mean
■ lime the voice of tlio child grew fainter and
| fainter, and finally ended. The mother said it
was asleep, und then her own voice gradually
waxed fainter until it ceased, arid no answer
was returned to his questions, and she probably
( loosened her bold and sank into the water. A
; feeling of torpor overcame him, and when re
stored ho found himself in Athens.
1 Tlio other gentleman, being a good swim
mer, attempted to swiin ashore with a bag of
I gold on bis arin which bad been entrusted to
him by a young lady, and her sole property.—
The exceeding coldness of the water affected
him very soon, and he dropped the bag; after
ward his coat becoming saturated with water
he attomptcd to pull it off, and succeeded, all
but one sleeve, which resisted all his efforts
from the swelling of the under coat. Ho linal
! ly wrenched it open with bis teeth, but the ef
fort was so exhausting that lie lost all con
sciousness until he found himself in a room at
Hudson, having been picked up by a small
; boat.
A clergyman told me that to him the most
shocking part of the accident was the dreadful
selfishness exhibited by all hut some two or
An old Quaker saved six or seven persons at
the peril of his own life, while a strong mail
stood by without raising a finger, cursing and
swearing at the children for making a noise.—
Another even left his wife and childien to seek
his trunk! and they in the meantime were swept
away by the water.
! inquest was held in New York on Saturday,
| over the body of William Lennon, an Irish
man, 40 years of ago, who committed suicide
iby blowing out his brains with a pistol. The
I 'lerald says:
From the testimony of Mary Rogers, and
another female, it appeared that the deceased
was a shoemaker, and occupied a back room
on tho first tloor as a sleeping apartment; Lhat
he was of a discontented disposition, and many
tirses declared that he was tired of life, and
wished to die. The last that was seen of him
was on Tuesday or Wednesday last, and the
witnesses did not know whether he was in the
house or not. This morning, according to
tiieir testimony, the landlord informed one of
the witnesses that he had let Lennon's room,
and desired her to go and see if ho intended to
move out. The witness and Mary Rogeis,
finding the door locked, got a key fiom some
other part of tho house and opened tho door,
and there discovered tho deceased lying upon
the bed, his head mangled and bloody, with a
pistol in his right hand. Upon the table were
two half sheets of paper, on one of which the
following letter was written to Mr. McGarry,
the landlord:—
Mr. James JWcGamj:
Sir—As 1 have this day taken a hath, and
carefully washed my body, at the fool of Des
brosses street, i shall not. bo stripped, but bu
ried as lam dressed. My tilings here and at
Mr. Young's you will dispose of as you think
proper. Yours, &c. &e. &c.
This note was written in a very legible hand,
and spelled correctly. Upon the other paper
tiie following poetical extract was written:—
Tliouuli lone of winds and storms die sport,
Condemned in wretchedness to roam,
Soon iliou Shalt reach a sheltering P >rt,
yry- "A quiet home.''
I long to lay my weary head
And aching heait henenth the anil,
To slunihci in thai dreamless lied,
"from all my toil."
Tiie coroner was unable to ascertain whether
the deceased was a man of family, or whether
he had any relatives. He was said to have
been temperate and industrious. The jury
found that he came to his death by shooting
himself with a pistol.
tist Home Mission Society have decided upon
separation, the North from tho South, and a
committee has been appointed to report a pro
per plan. At the adjourned meeting of the so
ciety on Thursday, the question recurring on
l)r. Welch's resolution against employing
slaveholders as missionaries—
Rev. Dr. Maginnis of Now York proposed an
amendment, 110 slated that a division had al
ready taken place between the South and
North, and must he recognized. Delegates
present from the North say, that if the execu
tive board shall appoint slaveholders to be inis
sionaiies, they cannot sustain the society—
Members in and from the South say, that
unless such appointments are made, they
will not sustain the society. It is not well
to adopt any measure, which shall seem
to any to violently repel us from a por
tion of the soeiety. The separation propos
ed can be made. The present society shall
continue, the charter and the name being trans
ferred to Southern members, and they transfer
ring to a new society in the North, whatever
claims or property the North may pos-ess: or
the charter shall bo retained by the North, and
all the rights of the South bo duly regarded
and allowed This arrangement can easily and
satisfactorily to all parties bo made.
A few remarks followed from difl'erent mem
bers, when the question on the amendment was
put, and by a considerable majority, Mr. Ma
gimiis's amendment was adopted
severe, hurricane visited the Mississippi river,
from Cape Girardeau to St. Genevieve, on the
24th ult.
We learn from tiie St Louis New Era, that
llie steamer Dr. Franklin was overtaken by the
hurricane a few miles above St. Genevieve, as
siie was going up. Ibe force of tiie wind tore
off her larboard railing, itwninf, &c., atta ied
to the ladies' cabin, burstoil open several of tho
state room doors, and literally tore to pieces
live or six berths. The cabin panelling und in
side work was also much injured by being split,
as well as fho hurricane roof, which was parted
from the cabin in several places. The storm
was so scveie that for several moments all was
given up as lost, and great consternation and
confusion prevailed amongst the passengers on
board; but fortunately no one was injured. At
the time of tlio severest blow, supper was being
served in the main cabin, and nearly all the
passengers were at the table; to this fortunate
circumstance may be attributed the lucky es
cape of all. The hurricane is thought to have
swept all before it onshore, as a number of
trees were blown into the river. The Alexan
der Scott lay to under the bluffs above where
the storm crossed the river and was untouched
by it. The steamer West Wind was caught
in the storm near the Cape; she lost the pilot's
sleeping house overboard. The Quoen of tlio
West, was driven on a bar at Devil's Island,
arid it is supposed lost all the empty barrels on
her decks overboard; it is believed that she af
terwards succeeded in getting off the bar. The
Plymouth was also in the hurricane, but weath
ered the storm in tlio middle of tlio river, being
unable to land without damage. The Alexan
der Scott passed down without leeeiving any
material injury.
WAY ROBBERY. We learn from the Ports
mouth Mercury, that a most daring attempt
was made by three ruffians to murder and rob
Mr. Daniel Goodwin, of York, Maine, in a
piece of woods, on Tuesday evening the 29th
ult., when on bis way homo from South lier
wich, whither lie bad been to collect a sum of
money. Three men assaulted him with elubs
as he was coining through a woods; be luckily,
however, felled one of llietn to the earth with
a stick that he seized from one of their hands,
and finally beat oil' the other two, but not un
til they had .severely wounded him on the head.
He undoubtedly owes his preservation to Ins
physical strength, he being, as we learn, a very
athletic man. We are gratified to learn that
two of the villains have been apprehended and
lodged in jail.
A GOOD JOKE. Tito Bjotisboro' Odd Fel
j low tells a good joke on one of tlio newly ap
pointed magistrates in that neighborhood:
It appears that lie stepped into the office of
j an acquaintance, and alter conversing a little
I observed that lie saw George W. Smith, of
i llagerstown, was re-appointed a Justice of the
Peace by Gov. Pratt. The otbei person told
j hint he must bo mistaken—he, however, insist-
I ed.that it was true, and added that lie saw the
I announcement in a paper, and that it was an
J extra appointment, it not having cotne with tho
| regular list of appointments. The way the
i Odd Fellow's friend was led to err was, thro'
j an adve't'sement of Mr. Smith in the Hagers
! town papers, in which lie styled himself an Kc
j Magistrate, lie taking it for granted from this
; circumstance that Mr. Smith was an extra
i Magistrate.
I now implement of warfare of terrible efficacy
j has just been devised in England bv Professor
j Rronsen. It consists of a liquid similar to al

senic. It ignites the moment it is exposed to
the air. if any vessel filled with it, like a glass
j or iron globe, should he thrown upon the decks

j filled with clouds of white arsenic, hy which a
deadly poison is evolved and inhaled. Jlcing
1 heavier than, and insoluble in water, it could
not bo extinguished, and of course, it becomes
i liital to all within its infiucnce. A dreadful
j implement in the art of war.
THE DROUGHT. Tlfe severe drought expe
rienced last Summer in the Island of Cub t
(says the Savannah Republican) seems to have
been transferred to this section of country.—
There has been no rain of consequence in litis
vicinity for three or four months past, and the
same may be said of all the counties South of
this. The crops are suffering to an extent ne
ver before known at this season of tho year.
Those planters who have been so fortunate as
to get their crops up, will most of them have
to replant, as it is almost entirely cut off. The
season is now so far advanced that we fear an
almost total failure of the cotton and corn crops
in this section of the country at least, unless
rain should soon set in.

says:—"Ono of the wealthiest women in this
country died in Leonard-st. the other day, but
liar wealth was accumulated at fearful cost. It
is said she was formerly keeper of a splendid
house of prostitution in Baltimore, but when
another celebrated courtesan retired from her
