in 'mid Nature's solitudes sublime
a, or ramble thro' the hawthorn grove,
in boyhood's bliss, in olden time,
tow'J to beauty and the God of Love,
ory's mirror I behold thee there,
y as in life's morning hour thou wert;
rrow pieced my soul, and withering care
ilanted many a ping in m tnlt ind's heart,
trs had o'er me pass'd when fust I swept
oun ling lyre to thee, thou worshippM one;
le did I dream, when thus I slept,
uld awake from bliss to be undone!
■ miners then li id only fan'd thy brow,
giv'n to thy fair form all Grecian grace;
ee as I saw thee then, ev'n now,
oses budding on thy fairy face,
e with many a transport pass'd away,
woman's witching graces with thee grew;
I, amid her halld) 'neath Science' sway,
seeking laurels and alone fir you.
idious years did'st thou, with solemn voice,
je thy fond faith to wait for my return,
ue unto tliy trust, tlto i did'st rejoice,
I alas! was doorn'J for thee to mourn,
vas in my E len, thou my Eve,
h! a deadly serpent nestled there;
ung me to the heart, and dared to weave
ill of darkness round ine ant despair,
k on life's dark tide the damning bowl,
own my desperate anguish, then I sought:
the heart and sorrow of tke goul!
t agony for me hast tnou not wrought!
d I served tuy Gtd with half the truth*
I hive worshiped wotnin's heavenly charms,

y distracted frone thy angel arms!
s nothing now for me save 'lis alone
e the slave of passion, long since fled;
k on blissful hours forever gone,
many a tear of fond regret to shed. I

Ie intelligence from Europe by the steamer
t Britain, is singularly uninteresting, and
irises nothing worth copying beyond what
tublished on Saturday, if we except the
wing article on the passage of the Oregon
ie by Congress, and its reception in Eng-
[From tlie London Times, May 8 ]
le resolutions authorizing the President of i
Jnited States to give notice for the termi- j
in of the Oregon Convention of 1627, have [
, as we announcod yesterday, received the
tion of the Senato by a majority of 40 to 14
s. Nino weeks of continuous debate may i
upposed to have oxhausted the most sturdy
ers of Parliamentary endurance; and, from
Senators of MassachussotU to the newly ar-1
i representative of the State of Texas, not
ember of the sedate assembly seems to have '
his important topic pass in silence. The 1
>ts and the difficulties which are commonly
ined to a Cabinet on questions of this ua
have here been extended to a species of
ular assembly, and aggravated by publicity :
party spirit. But the result has been the !
e as if the resolutions had been introduced j
Vlr. Pclk; and public opinion throughout the
on has been informed and invigorated by
debate. In spite of the length of timo du
which we have contemplated the approach
lis notice—the clear certainty of the result
le discussion; the unanimity which we may
aid to have arrived at in both countries as
he expediency and necessity of putting an
to the doubtful condition of the question—
the impatience with which we desired that
preliminary step should be taken, in order
t the definitive negotiation might bc.prompt
esumed, it cannot be.doubted that the sol
l act of the American Government, which
bout to aseign a term to one of the most im
tant territorial conventions existing between
sat Britain and the United States, must be
siderable, and may become a momentous
nt. In America the debates on this subject
e almost exclusively monopolized the time
he Legislature and the attention of the pub
since the commencement of the session of
agrees. In this country Parliament and the
ion have been content to wait the course of
ints, and to leave untouched by premature
itroversy one of the most important functions
the Executive Government, and one of tho
'best prerogatives of the Crown. But, in
te of the exclusive discussion to which the
egon territory has given rise on tho other
e of the Atlan'ic, and the extreme reserve
licli has hitherto been maintained on this,
ire is at bottom the same deep and earnest
pe in both countries that this question will be
licably settled, and we trust there is an equal
solution in tho Governments of both countries
make every exertien, consistent with their
le interests and honor to terminate the con
iversy. It is in this spirit that we are willing
receive the notice for the termination of the
isting convention.
In this spirit and with an express reeommen
.tion to that effect, the resolutions have been
imed and carried through in both houses of
ingress; and in the same spirit we do not
>ubt that the negotiation will bo foithwith
newed. The alternate is now distinctly in
cated. The utmost term to which the peace
'the world can be prolonged is one twelve
onth, if indeed circumstances do not bring a
>pt a much earlier rupture, unless the parti
on of the Oregon territory be finally settled
ith that period. Never was a heavier res
onsibility incurred by public men; never was
graver question poised in the balance
* Providence. The provisional agreement
nder which our pacific relations with the
fnited States have subsisted for 30 years,
is to be superseded by a final definition of our
respective rights upon the north-wostern coast
of America; or to be succeeded by war. The
vessel is already loosened from the moorings at
which she lay in peace. The convention of
joint occupancy is virtually ended; and the des
tinies of these two great nations—if, indeed,
they can be called twain, which have so great
a name, a language, and a freedom in common
with each other—are exposed to the fluctua
tions ofadverse and conflicting claims. The
emergency is, doubtless, a most serious one;
but happily for the honor of this country, it is
accompanied by none of those feelings of ex
citement amongst ourselves which have so of
ten perploxed the affairs of the world, and it
will bo met with the deliberate energy of men
as conscious of our duties as of our strength.
The form in which the resolution has been
ultimately adopted by the Senate of the Uni
ted Stales is extremely dignified and becoming,
and in this respect it may be regarded as a
triumph oftho moderate party over the violent
and excessive pretensions of the gentlemen who
act with Mr. Allen. In the final division
which look place, 22 votes out of 40 belonged
to the whig party; whilst only two whigs vot
ed with the extreme party against the form in
which it was proposed that the notice should
be given. So that, although the division had
nothing of a party character, the adhesion of
the whigs secured that moderation of language
for which it is remarkable. It seems, that ac
cording to the forms of Congress, the House of
Representatives must concur in the resolution
as amended by the Senate, and for this pur
pose it will undergo some further debate in the
lower house. As the notice stands in Mr.
Crittenden's motion, there is not an expression
in the preamble with which wo do not cordial
ly concur; and it forms a striking contrast to
the peremptory and unqualified expressions
used by Mr. Polk in his official communica
tions. In fact, when the Senate oftho United
States speaks [of the "evil consequences of the
divided allegiance of an American and British
population, and of the confusion and conflict of
national jurisdiction" in Oregon, they substan
tially recognize that principle of division which
Mr. Polk has hitherto denied, and they impose
upon him the prosecution of a negotiation
which he has endeavored to render impossible.
Thus far, then, and in more respects than
one, the American notice materially improves
the prospect of a speedy settlement. It recog
nizes, in general terms, the basis upon which
alone such a settlement can be attempted, and,
by putting an end to the period of joint occu
pancy, it prepares us to maintain to the fullest
extent the rights we derive from the present
occupation. Whatever be the fate of the pro
visional treaties, we presume that no one will
contest that the rights and interests which have
grown up by their protection and authority are
sacred, both under the letter of those treaties,
and under the original rights to which we now
revert in all 4 their force. Our position as claim
ants upon an equal footing with the United
States for the portion of the whole territory in
dispute is rather strengthened than weakened
by the abrogation of the treaty, and we cannot
doubt that the ministers of the crown will be
ready, upon the receipt of the notice, firmly
and explicitly to declare to the Cabinet of
Washington what those rights are which they
have long been "resolved and prepared to ntain
j main." Every incident which has occurred in
; the course of those discussions has more and
! more fully convinced us that whilst a compro
mise is necessary, and, indeed, our ownstate
i ment of our claims suggests a division, no sur
j render of those claims can be attempted. We
are not conscious of having advanced any ar
gument, or made any assertion, which is not
j greatly within the strictest limits to which Bri
j tish rights might have been carried; and below
the line which has been traced for the policy
' of this country lies nothing but insecurity and
i disgrace. To that position we therefore ad
' here; we have no doubt that the Ministers of
the Crown will adhere to it no less firmly, con
| fident that in the maintenance of just rights, aR
I well as in securing peace, they are supported
j by the unanimous resolution of the people of
j England.
[From the New York-Globe.]
This ofticer is one of those rare spirits which
a state of war will bring out from our citiron
soldiers. Mis late unequalled conflict with the
Mexicans, in which he lost nearly every man
under liis command, and his daring heroism in
cutting his way to Gen. Taylor's camp, have
excited in the public mind a strong desire to
know more of him. He is the same gentleman
so frequently and honorably spoken of in Gen.
Green's joural of the Mier expedition. He it
a native of Washington City, from whence he
wont into the Florida war, where in several
campaigns he distinguished himself by his in
trepid bravery. In 1842, he went -to Texas,
and during tlio invasion of that Republic, by
Gen. Woll, he was marked for his bold and
daring conduct. After the Mexican General
had retreated from San Antenia, and when he
lay upon the Rio Hondo, Walker and Capt.
McCullough crawled through his camp one
night and spied out his position, and the next
day with the gallant Hays, led the attack up
on his rear-guard. He then joined the cele
brated expedition against Mier, and on the mor
ning of that sanguinary battlo, he, with three
others—boing the advancod scout of the Tex
ans—was taken prisoner, and carried with his
hands tied behind him to the head quarters of
Gen. Ampudia. The Mexican General ques
tioned liiin as to the Texan forces, and when
Walker informed hiin that the Texans had on
ly throe hundred men, Ampudia pompously re
plied; "Does that audacious handful of men
presume to follow me into this strong place
and attack roe?" "Yes," says Walker, "make
yourself content upon that subject,General,they
will follow you into hell and attack you there."
He was, with his comrados, then marched a
prisoner to the city of Mexico.
At Salado, with the lamented Capt. Camer
on and Dr. Brennen, he led the attack upon the
guards, overpowered them, and marched for
Texas when, after eating up all their horses and
mules, surrendered to the Mexican Generals,
Mercer and Ortago. He was again marched
to Salado, where with his comrades, he was
made to draw in the celebrated black bean lot
tery, and evory tenth man was shot. Those
that remained of the Texians were marched to
the Castle of Peroto and the city of Mexico.—
Here, while working on the streets in that city,
ho was struck by a Mexican corporal for not
working faster, when with his spade heknockod
down the guards who boat him nearly to death.
His life was a long time despaired of, and
upon his recovery, he with two companies sca
led the walls of his prison after nightfall, and
made his way to Texas, over a distance of moro
than a thousand miles. Before, however, they
got out of the country, they were twice more
imprisoned, and each time effected their escape.
When he had reached Texas again, ho joined
Capt. Hays, who, with fifteen others, armed
with Colt's repeating pistols, fought 96 Caman
ches, and defeated them, leaving 36 killed upon
the ground. Here Walker was run through
the body with a Camanche spear, and his life a
gain despaired of. Wo now hear ofhim, with
70 Texans, attacking 1400 Mexicans, and all
perishing in battle but himself and six others;
and then to crown his wonderful life of daring,
he cut his way, single-handed, into Gen. Tay
lor's camp from Point Isabel.
LAND. The following address to the Ladies of
Philadelphia, and oftho United States general
ly, from sixteen hundred ladies of the city of
Exeter, in England, has particular reference to
the Oregon dispute:
Beloved Friends and Sisters—The suggest-i
ion of friendly international addresses, in order
to deprecate war and creato a pacific spirit hav
ing been extensively approved and its adoption
pressed upon all classes, we trust it will not be
deemed unseemly in women to seek, by the
same means, to influence their American sis
ters in the cause of religion and peace.
It may not be within our province to judge
of the merits of the question now at issue be
tween our respective governments, but we must
feel how greatly to be dreaded would be a re
sort to arms on any subject.
Lot us then, beloved sisters, unite together,
though separated by the mighty deep, in using
the influence we possess, which is not power
less, though exerted chiefly around the domes
tic hearth: let us seek to infuse into the minds
of our husbands, our fathers, our sons, and our
brothers, and of all around us, spirited amity
and concord, whispering peace wherever the
sounds of discord are heard: and let us, as mo
thers, watch over the opening minds of our
tender offsping, and point out to them that the
way to true honor is not through fields of bat
tle, but through the enlightened straight-for
ward course of justice and equity, prescribed
by the Gospel, of'peace on earth and good will
towards men.'
You and we have a common ancestry, and
are bound together by innumerable ties of con
sanguinity and mutual interest; sorely, then,
we ought to be united in the bonds of christian
love. How shall those whoso interests require
the maintenance of closest friendship, and who
ought to love as brethren, meet on the field of
battle to destroy each other.
Above all, let us unite in prayers to tha
Great Lord oftho Universe, who turneth the
hearts of the children of men, that He will dis
pose the Rulers of both countries to a pacific
adjustment of their national differences, that so
the reciprocal benefits of friendly intercourse
may still be maintained, and that, under the
benign influence ot peace, the cause of religion
and virtue may prosper, and these two great
nations perform their part in promoting the
advance of that blissful period, foretold by tho
prophet, 'when nation shall not lift, up the
sword against nation, and the people shall
learn war no moro.'
With sontiments of sincere good-will,
We remain your Friends and Sisters."
nati Times of Tuesday contains the following
account of the doings of "the people" in that
city the previous day:
"A certain cheesemonger named Butler, who
cuts cheese as a huckster in our markets, and
who is an Englishman by birth, and in all his
feelings and sympathies, made some foul and
insulting observations about the Americans and
the Star Spangled Banner, yesterday, whilo a
recruiting party was passing, for which he was
pelted out of market with eggs, and run off
out of sight. Last evening, he again brought
his wagon into market, which so incensed sun
dry and divers citizens, that a rally was made
last night, and his wagon and stock in trade
broken up and burned in the market space;
from thenco the company proceeded to Butler's
house, which they completely gutted of a hea
vy stoek of cheese, bacon, &c., scattering the
fragments for squares around. Diligent search
was made for Butler, as it was intended to give
him a suit of clothes not made by a tailor; but
the bird had flown without waiting for tlio tar
and feathers. The Mayor and City Marshal
were on the ground soon after the damage was
done, and made some arrests; but the prisoners
were rescued, and we regret to learn that the
Marshal was seriously injured."
WAR WITH THE INDIANS— The Cherokees in
Arms! The New Orloans papers of the 23d
ult. contain reports that the Cherokee Indians on
the frontier of Texas, havo assumed a warlike
attitude against the Americans. We trust the
report may prove to be unfounded. The fol
lowing article in relation to the rumor, is from
the Delta :
We had a conversation with Gen. Morse, of
Natchitoches, last evening. Ho left that town
on the 20th inst., with the volunteers who ar
rived here yesterday on tho steamboat Cora.—
Previously to the starting of the boat, a Mr.
Gardner, from the town of Sabine, in Texas,
arrived there. He stated that before he left
Sabine, an express arrived from the northern
frontior with a call from the authorities on the
county of Sabine to raise forthwith a company
of mounted men, and send them on to defend
tho frontier of the Indian country against the
Cherokees, who were up in arms, or from
whom at least, hostilities were anticipated. The
express rider informed Mr. Gardner that he left
a similar order—an order for another company
of mounted men—with the authorities of the
town of St. Augustine as lie passed there.—
There was great excitement along the Indian
frontier. Mr. Morse says that ho himsolf con
versed with Mr. Gardner, and has implicit con
fidence in his veracity.
It appears that a party of the Chorokee In
dians some years ago bought from a New York
land company, a tract of land in tho fat north
ern part of Texas, for which they paid $30,-
000. It appears that the government of Texas
was always opposed to their settling them, and
that a full and unreserved friendship was never
established between the parties. On the break-
ing out of hostilities at the Rio Grande, tho
Cherokees—or that portion of them on lite
northern frontier of Texas—offered their ser
vices to Governor Henderson; not having full
confidence in their fealty, he 'refused to accept
their services: and now, it is believed that they
take advantage of tho existing state of things—
whether the Mexicans have intrigued and tam
pered with them is not known —to assume to
wards tho people of Texas a hostile attitude.

Of this distressing disease,
result of 'he above mentioned secret lia ltl, but a very
brief description for many reasons, can be given here.
The complaint comes on gradually. It begins by a
too hasty discharge of semen in copulative and pas
sionate dreams. Such emissions being too hasty,
have aopower, while the erections are feeble, imper
fect and soon over. As the disorder grows worse,
the discharges or emissions become more easily ex
cited and frequent, often brought on by lascivious
ideas, or by merely touching the part. In this deplo
rable case, the emissions take place without any
pleasure and without erection, and in this debilitated
and sensitive state of the organs the direful effects of
pollution so ruinous to Isealth, lake place day and
uight. Pale, emaciated, and weak, the unhappy vic
tim of artificial gratification complains of pain in the
head and hack, has a languid look, dimness of sight,
flushing of the face when spoken to, lewnessof spi
rits, and a vague dread of something, often starting
with terror at a sudden sight or sound. He also
loalhs society, from an innate sense of shame, and
feels a dislike to all bodily and mental exertion.—
Distressed, and his mind fixed upon his miseries, he
slyly searches every source that promises relief.
Ashamed to make known his situation to lus friends,
or those who by education, study,arid practical know
ledge, are able to relieve him, he applies to the igno
rant and designing, who filch him of his pecuniar
substance,ami instead of restoring bim to heatlth,
leave him to sigh over his galling disappointment; the
last scene of the drama winds up with mania, cata
lepsy, epilepsy or some terrible disease or the nerves,
and death drops the curtain, hurrying the unhapp
patient to an untimely tomb, where his friends tr
totally ignorant of the real cause.
