lire,tiK bread! bread for the dying:
The fainting, the gasping and sighing,
The heart of poor Ireland is crying
For bread!
Bread! bread lor the weak mail,
80 stalwart before,
tVlio ghastly anil gluist like
Now crawls from bis door;
.Anil bread for that Maiden,*
Who fainting ere while!
Was waked into life—
Willi a lunatic smile!
Bread! bread for the Mothers,
80 sleepless and pale:
Whose offspring cling round them
Willi a sorrowing wail!
Hear ye not a shriek?
How it pierces tin air,
The voice or the famish'<l
The cry of despair!
O give something for HIM,
Who lias hless'd here our store,
And who looks with deep love
On the friends of the poor
Bread! bread! bread for the dying!
Tin fainting, and gasping and sighing,
The heart of poor Ireland is crying
For bread!

[From the N, V. Spirit of the Times.]
Among the members of thn liar, was young
11., whose round, smooth face, soft skin, and
clear complexion, gave him a inther feminine
cabt of countenance. And the mode in which
he dressed his hair, heightened the effect of his
peculiar physiognomy. In childhood he had re
ceived an injuiy on lus head froru a scald,
which ever alter prevented the growth of any
hair on the scalded spot. On every other part
of his head his hair was of a most luxuriant
growth. This blemish he was always very
careful to conceal, by combing his hair over
the naked place, and fn tcning it with a lady's
But it must not. be inferred that 11. was femi
nine in disposition; lor a more manly, generous
hearted, good not ureal fellow, never lived, lie
was always full of fun, and always ready to en
ter into any joke that was going.
The landlady at one of our usual stopping
places on the circuit, was a very precise, fur
► mal widow, considerably past the prime ol'hfe,
who valued herself very much for her strict
propriety of deportment, and the respectubilty
of her house. To do .M;s L justice, it must
be admitted that her house was the most order
ly, and the neatest in its arrangements of any
in the circuit.
But some of us thought that her extreme
nicely of demeanor bordered rather 011 prude
ry; and tho great pains she always took to
provide for the comfort of the Judge, who was
a formal old bachelor, manifested a preference
not altogether to the taste of some of the incm-
bers of tho bar, who thought themselves equal
ly as well entitled as the Judge, to tho kind
considorati.ii. of tho landlady. Some of them,
therefore, determined to indulge themselves in
a joke, at the first convenient opportunity, at
the expense of the J >dgo and our hostess.
The appearance of 14- on our circuit suggest
ed a convoniont opportunity for play ing off tho
long contemplated prank. As if. never had
been 'victimized 1 on <>ur circuit, no scruples
were entertained on his account.
We had been riding during the greater part
of a cold, uncomfortable day, over an extensive
prairie, exposed tea sharp cutting wind, when
we approached within a few miles of tho lieu-e
of Mrs. L , whom we intended honoring with
our company for that night.
F. and 11. suggested that it would he better
to ride ahead and give .Mrs. L. timely warning
of our approach, in order that she might have
ample tune to prepare the supper and make the
necessaty arrangements for stowing us away
for the night.
This was at once acceded to by all, and F.,
B , and myself, offered ourselves as the 'ad
vance guard.'
Mounted on fine horses, ami going at a ra
pid pace, we soon arrived at the house.
Our landlady received us in liar ual stiff,
formal manner, and soon commenced making
inquiries about the Judge, of whose health and
speedy arrival wc gave satisfactory assntan
We found, as usual, that the best bod in the
house, and the best stall in the stablo, were re
served for the comfort of the Judge and his
"Mrs. L ," observed F., in a very serious
manner, "how long have you been acquainted
with Judge T ?"
"Ever since be has been in this circuit," re
plied our hostess.
"Mrs. L." continued F.,"1 have known you
for several years, and have always entertained
a respect for you, and I deem it my duty to
apprise you of a circumstance that may deeply
affect your character, and the standing of your
"My character, and the standing of my
house! why, what do you mean, Mr. F,? Who
has dared say anything against my character,
or the standing of my house?"
"No one that I know of,"answeied F., "but
1 want to put you on your guard. Mrs. L., 1
have my doubts whether Judge T is the
man you take liirn to be. To come to the
point, he is now travelling the circuit in com
pany with a young woman, dressed in man's
clothes, whom he is passing off for a young
lawyer. Ho calls her Mr. H , and they
will be here in a few moments."
"Is it possible, can it be, Mr. F? What?
Judgo T guilty of such conduct! Why, 1
have always regarded him as one of the most
correct men I ever knew. It cannot be,
Mr. F."
"You will soon see, Madame, to your satis
faction. I could not believe it myself, when I
first heard of the affair."
"Mr. F.," remarked the widow with great
earnestness of manner, "will Judge T
have the presumption to enter my house with
such company?"
"Doubtless he will, Madame,"answered F.,
for tliey have been travelling together for the
past three weeks. But a short time ago 1
heard him remark to this young woman, that
he would take great pleasure in introducing
her to yon."
"He will, will he! i will let him know,ex
claimed the widow, with virtuous indigo; lion,
"that if lie ha* no rcgird far his own character
1 have some for mine, ("hoy shall net slay in
my house."
F. had succeeded in workingon the old lady
to the right pitch, when tho Judge, in compa*
nj with 11., entered the house,
" rs. L ob-crved the Judge, with much
cordiality of manner, "I am indeed vciy glad
to seo you looking so well. How have you
been this Fall Allow rnc to intioduco to you
my young friend, Mr. 11., who intends to pi ac
tio*; in our circuit.
The old lad,- drew herself up to her full
height, and with a countenance expressing the
utmost indignation, replied: "Judge T ,
you are the last person from whom 1 should
have expected such treatment. Yen might, at
least, have spared mo this insult in my pwn
"Insult, Mrs. L." said the Judge, with the
greatest astonishment. "What is the mean
ing of all this? lam entirely unconscious ol
having done anything to injure your feelings
in the least."
"You are, indeed!" replied our hostess. "!):>
you not regard it as an insult ton lady, to in
troduce to her such a worthless creature as
that!" pointing to II , who stood by the side of
the Judge, cup in hand, and lost in utter
amazement at this unexpected attack upon Ins
"Why, Mrs. L ," continued the Judge,"this
is Mr. H , one of the most respectable young
gentleman in our country. You certainly must
"Respectable indeed"' interrupted our land
lady ina scornful and indignant manner. A j
worthless huzziy dressed in man's clothes.— ;
Arid you, judge T , to be travelling in
company with such a creature. I never would j
have believed it, iiad I not boheld it with my j
own eyes.
"My dear Madame," said H., stepping for- I
ward, "you are mistaken—soine one must have'
been imposing on you."
"Don't dear tnadamc, mo—you brazen faced
trollop," exclaimed the old lady. "How rtarel
you come into my house? Out of my house
this moment—you impudent jade ."
"Surely, Mrs. L "said the Judge, endeavor-1
iug to stop this torrent of Hbusu, "there is some
strange mistake about all this. 1 assure you
that you are entirely mistaken in your surmise. |
This young gentleman is well known to all the
members ot our bar. Mr. F. you arc well ac- !
quauited wjth Mr. II r Where is Mr F.?
Tlie Judge looked around, but all had dis
appeared save the actors of this ludicrous - eene. j
As soon as we saw that matters were coining
to a crisis, ive all left the room, and going round I
the house placed ourselves in a position where I
we could hear all that was going on within, j
without any danger of being discoveied.
In the meantime, Mrs. L , insisted that the
Judge and IT, should both leave the house.
Not being abie to find any one to aid tlieni |
in their extremity, and despairing of convinc
ing her ol the mistake she was laboring under, j
they mounted their horses and rude to the next
As soon as they had departed we returned to
the house, and complimented the old lady on
the resolution and spirit she hud shown on this 1
trying occasion.
As she had now successfully repelled this as
sault 011 her dignity and the character of lier
house, bv driving out the invaders, she soon !
became restored to her usual equanimity. She
repeatedly declared during the evening, that,
nothing but her own eyes would convince her,
such had been her esteem for the character of
Judge T She declared that under the
same circumstances she would have driven
from her house the President of the United
States. |
That night F. slept in the bed reserved fori
the Judge, and regaled himself with many lit-;
tie delicacies set apart tor the special use ol' his
In truth, we who remained, were treated with
unusual attention. The Judge, who soon un
ravelled the mystery, was for a short time very
indignant; but being very sensitive tu ridicule,
he pinmishcd forgiveness upon condition that
we would not tell the story on the circuit.
H , however, said it was too good to keep,
although lie was the principal sufferer.
Our hostess was for a long time unappeasa
ble, hut eventually was reconciled to us through
the mediation of a handsome silk dress.
COLLISION AT SEA— Probable Loss oj Life. —
Capt. Dixon, ol'tlio brig Savannah, arrived at
Savannah on the 24th inst. from New York,
makes the following report:
On the 11th inst., he experienced a very
heavy gale from S. E. At 4A. M. while lay"-!
ing too, came in contact with the schr. Laura.
Jane, of Mattapoisetle, Capt. Delano, from N.
York, bound to Cape Florida, with a cargo of
brick, stone and other material for building a
light house. In the collision the Savannah had
her main channels carried away and some of
her chain bolls broken, and received other dam
age. Capt. Delano arid three of the orew of
the schooner, jumped on board tho Savannah.
Fears are entertained that tho schooner went
down in a short time, as she could not be seen
at day light. There were twelve passengers
and two of the crew left on board the schooner.
Capt. Delano furnishes the names of some of
the passengers, viz: Messrs. Briggs and T. C.
Hammond, of Mattapoiseite; Captain Pease,
Messrs. Bourne, Dow, and Boyle of Now Bed-!
ford, The wind continued to blow a gale from
the Westward for throe days.
AN INGENIOUS TRICK. One of tho prison
ers at Sing Sing escaped on Wednesday list by
an ingenious expedient. The keepers at night
ascertain that each prisoner is in his cell by the
hand, which is thrust through the bars. The
prisoner manufactured a hand, and employed
OHO of his follow prisoners to stick it in the bars
of his coll, while he himself remained in the
workshops, from which he easily escaped. He
had carved the hand in his call, carrying out
the shavings every morning to the workshop.
A FAMILV MEETING. In New York, last
Christmas, there was a family meeting of eight
children, a brother and seven sisters, whose
united ages are five hundred and fourteen years,

(Kcr the Baltimore Clipper ]
An immense improvement has taken place, in
lighting our city, since 1 l.ad the pleasure of
addressing a few remarks upon that sul.j set
through the medium of \ our valuable indepen
dent journal. It far exceeds my roost san
guine expectations—my hopes, and even my
My object was that our citizens as well as
strangers, should realize the advantages of
lamp light, to guide their stops, he for etlre rising
of the moon, and after that, orb had ddflpeudud
the horizon in llio West, for obvious reasons,
staled in my communication. If I have been
instrumental in effecting the recent improve
ments, my designs have been manifestly mis
iindeistoud; and instead of benefitting either
citizens or strangers, it lias not only proved
nugatory; but imposed upon our Watchmen
great additional labor, and a largo viasto of oil,
the cost ol which, of course, will be found
charged to the tax payeis of the city.
I will give you a few facts, which I hope
may attract the atlcntion of the proper au
thorities, us well as the fathers of the city, who
will soon assemble to regulate matters and
things in general, for the ensuing y ear.
On Thursday evening last, although, al sun
down, the nearly hull orbed moon was at meri
dian, the whole of the lamps throughout the
city were fully lighted; by whose orders it is
not my province to enquire: I merely state the
fact end vouch for its truth
On Friday night, with a clear and cloudless
atmosphere, the moon shone brilliantly, as
though she also was revelling, in holiduy at
tire, at the event a Christian were cele
brating that day. So it was with our city
lumps— they were rrj licing throughout the
whole extent ot our city, as tur us it was prac
ticable for their light to peer thro' smoky,
dingy, unwashud glass—until about ten o'clock,
when the industry aud labor of the Watchmen
was, a second time, called into rt rpi sition )( /ur
that niglit, suddenly to extinguish them. It
had been discovered that the moon had risen!
On Saturday night 1 had occasion to visit the
lower portion of the city} and to my surprise
and astonishment, found tho southern limits,
from Light street, (including one side ofßilti
more St.,) to Hat ford run, thence along Wilk
st. and thu line of tin; Basin to the place ul'be
ginning—with the exception of an occasional
patch— luxuriating in moon tight and lump light.
As lew persons, perhaps, specially noted i/
fact, and QS I am particularly hostile, HS an
old fashioned democrat, to monopolies of any
kind, 1 avail my self ol your kindness solemnly
to protest against sin li proceedings, and invite
the co opi ration ot ail who are interested in
footing bills for such oxtravugiuiz is, to aid in
correcting the procedure.
Yours, respectfully, VI.VTOU.
P. S. I had almost forgotten to stale, that,
in traversing the lamp lighted district, the lurid
glare of tho lamps actually cast a perceptible
shadow of my /irrson upon the pavement! and
that we had nothing but moon light on jjhuiday
night' V.

clerk in tho post office al Dayton, Ohio, was
I last spring charged with purloining §2OO from
a letter which Messrs. Chambers &. Harns, of
that city, deposited in tho office to be sent to
Springfield, but which never came to hand.—
The charge against Howuid almost drove him
to despair. He immediately resigned and vol
unteered for Mexico, where, being of a feeble
constitution, he fella prey to disease and died
on the march from Matamoras to Camargo.—
Last week the letter with the monoy, was re
turned from the dead letter office at Washing

We, the undersigned, having visited Mr. Isaac
Rrn*l<q, Jr at the ortice ot Messrs. Ucwnnd St Wal

case the most remarkable one we have evr witness
Hor heard of. His tisease was HCROFULA, and
teirible must have been Ins twilve years' conflict
with the destroyer!
F!is Palate, the Entire Roof of his Mouth, his
Nosh. Upper Lip, and lower lid of the RIGHT EYB
have hern Octroyed, his Face neon I, f eaten up, and
part of the JA W HONK carried away. And yet we
can give no description of Ins case.
Mr. U. if!l< ri:i9 us that in January last, the whole
interior of his mouth, as well as most of his face,
was a miss of deep and painful u'ecrs!
On the I *lth it January last, he commenced taking
which checkt d the diioasi in .1 ft wda ye, and from
that time the cure has progressed without inn 1 mis
N'w fls|i has supplied the place of the d p ulcers,
and though 1 adly disfigured, hi- face is round, ami
his general health is restored.
