Jtr- mi i i i M"1 From tbe Daily (tluff.lo) Star. SOLILOQUY OF THE GENIUS OF MOD. . ERN WHIGGERY. As on a rock 'midst Erie's desert waste' In graceless guise, a h. ggnrd Sybil stood, With rueful countenance and mien unchaste, Sho thus soliloqu iscd in peevish mood. " Well, what I could, I've done yot what avail? The savage democrats do foil me still ! When Money, Slander, Fraud and Panics fall. How next a't ick them T This will test my skill, A mammoth bank I'll havo, what e'er it cost Ono hundred millions c tpital, at least, To back me; then, if victory be lost, . I'll doff divinity and don the beast 1 To compass this, I have deputed forth My t ill eft minions through this whole domain. I've fed my scribblers all revived their oath Of faulty, and mad j their duty-plain. Now let us see what next O fie ! O shame ! Wn're ten times christened, yet without a name, Save Whig ! Ill choxen by our dear.lought fool, That roaring, b blowing, bloated Wall-st. bull J A royalist am I erst conjured forth From A Ibion's famed Isle by Noble North ; 'Gainst , 'ankee Whigs to urge bw battle strong, And wreak his vengeance on the rebel throng. I took my station 'midst tho battle's rage ; Cheered on Burgoyne, and nerved the arm of Gigi. When Warren fill, I aimod the fatal blow ; And sped ths ball that liid Mantgomcry low. I bade tho red man go, with bow and darts, And taVe sure uim ut democratic hearts! Nor ever sufi'cr, from his vengeful knife, . Sex, Ace, or Infancy to ransom life ! I taught the loyalist tho sword to wield, And spill his brother's blood in battle fluid ! In Arnold's car I breathed of Gold, of Courts, Of Royal favors, equipage and sports Then did ho Liberty and Country curse, And put his patriotism in his purse Thus did I fight with unrelenting hate, Nor ought relaxed 'till overcomo by fate! But still I'm Whig ! So christened by a calf! 0 what a Whig ! Hah, ha! That makes me laugh ! Immortal Pluto ! bear my deeds in mind Think how I've labored how I've groaned and pined Full three score years I've toiled on earth for thee, And yet received but one small stats in fee ! 1ibtcaJ of hate, wcro I inspired with love, 'Twer j better thrift to serve the Gods above ! Well, since one state must all my labors pay, I'm glad that one is 'M issachusetts Bay.' Tiiiro can I rest me there soino solace Hi d There raise mo statesmen fashioned to my mind. Once did that stte incur my withering frown There did I mow whole ranks of rebols down ! But that's tang syne that race havo disap peared : The prisent are by my own culture reared. I've purged that vineyard, and I know it's clean ; There's nothing left of Democratic mien. (Save 'mongst our ' Simple.mon' it's understood We never reckon these, or bad or good.) Wh n in tint stale I first took resiuenco, 1 sot to work to make some presidents. The first I finished off in style most rare, (Tho', soino would have it, ha disgraced the chair) Nor worse tho other one small loft except, Wherein wus literary lumber' kept. Ti.e. e were the firtt and last I over made ; . And nearly had I sworn to quit tho trade ; lccausc,though finished well, the stuff being bad, T: ey last'd, each, but ono Olympiad ! Uut.haJ I sworn, the oath I now should break, Fur here I swear, another will I mako. This oath I shall fulfil; and here's my man My Noble Dusk or Dostum Uoduke Dan t And nu'er, save once, since Noah's wondrous flood. Was such divinity in flesh and blood ! A prodigy he is a man complete, In whom all virtues and all graces meet! Had he his due and meed of merit, now A rekal diadem would grace his brow ! lie's wiso as Solomon, and eko as fair As royal Absalom with nil his hair As patriotic too ; and I'll foretell, Y ill bang as graceful when hung as well. When Mars, (the prompt cashier of royal George,) Last visited theso shores, I e had in charge Metallic currency' from Vulcan's mint To pay these democrats the full ext nt Of the r demand for Ships, and Stores, and men, Which they h id growled about since uod Knows when. A new rilcllion inhtan'ly ensued ! O matcl.hss baseness ! Black ingratitude ! Glowing with ire, anon with one accord I hey flew to arms against their Soverign Lord ; Jrims'ning their rob d steel in battle furious ; Alleging, merely, that tho coin was spurious ! 'Twas thin my Daniel's loy j tongu i snd heart Cine we I in I ly, and wmU ho pluycJ his part. Not P. ckingham, nor Cockburu t yes, nor Brock, Nor all tho British hosts that stood the bhock Of rcbjl fury, did so much annoy Those ruthless democrats as did my boy. It was his constant aim and greatest pleasure To thwart, if pouibh, each warlike measure, by vote and argument ; prevent supplies By cvory inc isure his gonius could devise : Thereby procure defeat in every case, And bring their arms to merited disgrace. All this my D iniel did, as records tell And every thing he doos, is done as well ! but ot his virtues, now, no more I'll prate I'll mako him president in spite of fate. And now give ere, all ye attending sprites, Keccive instructions, then commence your flights. My small fry editors must have their coo ; Tnis is the tusk I shall assign to you. Go speed your way, there's two below tn:s lane Of pop gun calibre ; that course you'll take. Tell tl e n, thore editors more learned and wise, Must do the CJin ngof all current hcs. No other duty will they have to do But give them currency and swear they're truo. Receive what slanders daily come to hand And send them swiftly throughout all the land. Never attempt to use my Daniel's nunn In their own language, or they'll blast his fime. So toll them all ; and mind you conic this way Just ton days hence, and tell mo whit they say. 1 can no more protractod vigils keep Tiie god invites mo ond I faiu would sleep. Here in the bosom of this pretty lake. Upon this rock, a ten day's nap I'll tako. Yes, hero I'll rast me whuro young wavelets pranco; Where zephyrs play and sprightly moon-bmms dance. I shall awake with sure cuccoss in view t Tucn cheerfully my labors I'll renew." Thus spoke the hag then low to bomnus bowed, Embraced tho rugged rock, ana snoreu aloud. 'I've got somo tho litt'.o tho greatest ac, 1 spect, as was never Known in all these parts, said a Connecticut Jor.at inn pulling forth from his capacious pocket a roll rescmblinff a Dicco of green cowhide. .MIt como from uway down east, where tho sun don t rise till afternoon, ana ioiks go to bud in tho morniti. it's mado out'n tho eves of the , sea serpent, mixed with a little of essence of thunder, ana stirred up witli a streak of lightning and it's warnt'd to euro any thing largcr'n a muskcter wto." : Tall Walking. "Did you run away from Texas ?" Said a man to his friend who returned from that country jn some thing of a hurry shortly after Fanning' massacre. . "No oh, no ; I did not run away exactly but I eavo somo of cm a specimen of, al. mighty tall walking.!" The Pickwick papers are very clever. The following is from the twelfth number of them.

Wot'll be a trial?' inquired Sam. To see you married, Sammy, to see you a diludid wictim, and thinkin' in your innocence that it's all werry capital,' replied Mr. Weller. It's a dreadful tri al to a father's feelin's that 'ere, Sammy.' Nonsense,' said Sam, 'I ain't agoin' to get married, don't you fret yourself about that ; I know your a judge of theso things. Urder in your pipe, and 1 11 read you the letter there.' We cannot distinctly sa whether it was tho prospect of the pipe, or tho consolatory rcuccuon mat a iuiai disposition to get married ran in the family and could'nt be helped, which Mr. Wellcr's feelings had caused his grief to subside. We should be rather disposed to say that tho result was attained by combining the two sources of consolation, for ho repeated the second in a low tone, very frequently ; ringing the bell meanwhile to order the first. He then divested himself of his upper coat : and liirhtinar tho nino and niacins' himself in front of the fire with his back towards it. so that ho could feel its full heat, and re- cline against the mantlepicco at the same time turned towards Sam, and with a countenance greatly mollified by the soft. ning influence of tobacco, requested him to hre away.' Sam dipped his pen into the ink to be ready for any corrections, and began with a very theatrical air- Lovely Stop,' said Mr. Weller, ringing the bell. A double glass of tho inwariable. my dear.' Very well, sir,' replied the girl, who with great quickness appeared, vanished, return, ed, and disappeared. 1 hey seem to know your ways here, observed Sam.

Werry glad to hear it,' said Mr. Weller, Poetry's unuat'ral ; no man ever talked poetry cept a beadlo on boxing day, or W arrin 8 blackin, or Rowland s oil or some o'them low fellows; never let yourself to talk poetry, my boy. Begin again Sam. my.' Mr. Weller resumed his pipo with criti cal solemnity, and Sam once more com. menecu and read as follows : 4Lovcly crccturc, I feel myself damned That ain't proper,' said Mr. Weller, tak ing n's pipe from his mouth.

So I am lookin' at it,' replied Sam, but here's another blot hero's a 'cy and a !, and a 'r.' ' Circumwented. n'rans.' sucreestcd Mr. Weller. - : No it ain't that?' said Sam, circumscnb. ed,' that's it. That aint as good a word as circum. wented, Sammy, said Mr. Weller rathei gravely. .... Think not,' said Sam. m Nothing like it, replied tho father. , But dont you think it means more ?' in nuircd Sam.

That's a worry pretty sentiment,' said the elder Mr. Weller, removing his pipe to mako room for the remark. Yes, I think it's raythcr good,' observed Sam, highly flattered. Wot I liko in that 'ere style o'wrilin', said the cider Mr. Weller, Ms, that there ain't no calling names in it no Wenuses. nor nothin' o'that sort ; wot's thogooJ o' couin a young ooman a weuusTjr angel, Sammy ?' Ah what ineeed?' replied Sam You might just as will call her a griffin or a unicorn, or a king's arms at once, which is werry well known to be a col. lection of fabulous animals,' added Mr. Weller. J ust as well, replied Sam. Sam complied wilh tho request, and pro. ceeded as follows : his father continuing to smoke with a mixed expression of wisdom and complacency, which was particularly edifying. A fore I see you, I thought all women was alike." So they are,' replied the elder Mr. Wol. ler, parenthetically. But now,' continued Sam, 4now I find what a reg'Iar soft headed, inkred'lous tur. nip I must ha' been, for there ain't nobody like you better than nothin'at all.' I thought it best to unko that rayther strong,' said Sam, looking up. Mr. Wciier noJJed approvingly and Sam resumed.

I am afeerd that that werges on the poetical, Sammy,' said Mr. Weller dabi- ously. ! No it does nt replied Sam, reading on quickly to avoid contesting the point. Lxccpt of me, Mary my dear, as your wallentinc, and think over what I've said. May dear Mary now I conclude.' That's all,' said Sam. That's rather a sudden pull up, ain't it, Sammy ?' inquired Mr. Weller. Not a bit on V sad Sam : she 11 vish there was more, and that's tho great art o' letter writinV Veil,' said Mr. Weller, 'there's some- thin' in that, aud I wish your mother-in. law 'ud conduct her conwersation on the same genteel principle. Aint you goin' to sign it?' Hint s the difficulty, said Sam '1 don t know what to sign it.' Sign it Veller,' said tho oldest surviv. ing proprietor of that name. Won t do,' said Sam. Never sign a wal lentinc with your own name. Sign it 'Pickwick' then, said Mr. Wel ler ; 'it is a worry good name, and a easy one to spell.' L ho werry thing ! said Sam. 'Uould end witli a worse ; what do you think ?' 1 don t l;ko it Sam, rejoined Mr. Wei- ler. ! never know'd a respectable coach man as wrote poetry, 'cept one, as mado an eficctin' copy o'werses, the night i fire ho wos hung lor a highway robbery ; and ho wos only a Cambcrvcll man, so even that's no rule.' But Sam was not to bo dissuaded from tho poetical idea that had occurred to him, so he signed the letter Your lovesick Pickwick.'

A Vrytng bliame. A western paper asserts "that there are in the citv of New York, seventy thousand unmarried females." faurely the matrimonial Bank has not bro ken, and refused to take up its notes? Perhaps tho fault rests with tho clergymen, who Drobab v insist on having specie lor their Services. If this be tho case, they had better take what they can get, rather than sulTor so many thousand maidens to stand with tears in their eyes, sighing for their spouses. Such a state of tilings can. not exist long, unvernmem must spvvuny adopt somo remedy, or their will be an in. surrection. One half of t! e girls are al ready pouting their pretty lips, and looking treason, and a bieath would quickly fan the sparks into a flame. Congress will, if required, undoubtedly pass tho following till, which would set matters at rest. MA bill providing for tho relief of 70,000 spinistcrs of the city of New York, and other purposes. Be it enacted, fyc. That on and after tho dato of the passage of this bill, all clcr. gymen arc hereby required to marry, nua dulv faste j in the bonds of Hymen, with. out fee or charge, any maiden or maidens ofsaidcit, who make application there for, &c. &c. No representative would bo base enough to oppose its passage, as if the bill should bo lost what would these seventy thousand maidens do. Hcigho. Missouri River. It will be seen, by tho following articlo from the St. Louis Ucpub. licanoftho 11th, that extensivo damage has been done by the flo J in that qaiar- ter. The River. Since Sunday evening tho river has been on a stand. Many co;rpo. tent persons express the belief, ilmtrho ol umo of water now in the rivar is equal to that of any former flood, but, that owing to the increased width of the bed of tho stream, opposite here, tho waters hive not risen to tho same height as heretofore. Of tho justness of theso opinions, wo aro unablo to form a correct conclusion, but wo are as. surcd that the water is within two and three feet of tho greatest height that his ever been IfriAwn Jn this ritv. ' The rise has been chiefly confined to tho MivirL We aro fold that so rapi l and so great was the swell from the Missouri, that t!io waters of the Mississippi and Illinois' were dammed back for several miles above tho mouth. Wo expect to hear of much distress and a grcnt loss of property in the Missouri "bottom. All the point between the Missouri and Mississippi, in St. Charles' county, is said to be overflowed, and all communication direct between this and St. Charles has been cut ofT, since Friday last by the water on the bottom opposite St. Charles. Large quantities of cord wood have been swept away, many of the cattle) drowned, and most of the corn in tho bot. torn destroyed. A boat which arrived at tho wharf yesterday reports that she left a. nother rise at Independence. . Report says, that the lower apartment of all the stores on Water street, in Alton,' and in the lower part of the town, are sub-, merged. Many contradictory reports are prevailing, of tho loss of the merchants occasioned by the rise, but nothing cer tain. The crops. When, ever, had any pco pie greater, cause for rejoicing with ref erence to tho harvest, than that with which Western New York is now blessed? Im. imagination could not fancy any condition of weather more favorabln than that which has been realized during tho last ten weeks. Tho rains falling often enough and not too heavily at once the temperature just right for wheat, potatoes and almost every thing in tho farm.ng lino, excepting corn, for which there is chanco enough yet in the warm weather of August all combined to bestow upon the country a most luxuriant vegetation. Tho weather has been excel lent for haying; and the crop of that article promises full supplies at fair prices to those who may have cattle to fodder through tho next winter storms. Roclicster Adver User. Monstrous Fraud. We learn from the Philadelphia and New York papers, that tho United States bank is about making ar-. rangements to resume specie payments on all :ts bills of tho new emission, leaving the old bills, in which tho United States Gov ernment is a partner, without any provis sion for redemption. Tho Government of the U. States is thus kept as a kind of stan ding indorscr for tho bank, and that institu. tion is realizing an immense profit by traf ficking in the paper of a partnership row dissolved, and which the government will bo eventually bound in honor to redeem.

The Humlug ? The efforts of the pres. ent and preceding administration to im prove tho currency of our country, by bringing gold and silver into circulation in place of small bills, are well entitled to and do rcccivo throught the union, tho warmest commendation, and the unreserved support of thi friendj of true democratic principles and the best interests of the com munity. Tho opposition of such as stig. matizc those efforts with tho ap.iellation of ' humbug," is, at least, no proof of their un. wiso attachment to the present means, of manufacturing "pressure." A man popping his head through a tailor's shop window, exclaimed What o'clock is it by your lapboard ?" upon which the tailor lifted up his lapboard and struck him a blow on the head, answering, "It has just struck one." Prosp xts of our Country. Rothschild is reported to havo recently said ! will not lend a dollar to such a country as Ameri ca, which has to import its own wheat." The insinuation was that our people, with all their beatitiful country, wcro not inclin ed to industry, and sought abroad for that which shoulJ have been raised in abundant quantities at home. Rothschild was wrong. There is no want of industry in our coun try, no moro than there is of enterprise. The scarcity of wheat in the United States for tho last year or two can be readily ac counted for. Too much land was laid out in "city lots," and remained waste and un occupied when it could have been profita bly employed in agricultural purposes ; and too many persons became interested in im peding rather than advancing the supply of provisions for our maikct. But tho er ror of such a course has been seen. Men havo ngain got their jackets off and thejr sons and daughters profitably employed in tilling thn ground, or making butter and cheese, where they have been lately "show ing off" to advantago in tho largo cities. Pmvidenco smiles unon his labors. Sun- s line and rain alternately descend and moisten and w; r n the earih. Tho ripen, ing corn nnd the golden grain now smile in rich luxuriance where last year was but a waste, and our country win again puvu herself tho richest on tho globe. What is there that the limits of tho U. States cannot produce that tho people of America can not accomplish. Rothschild may cast a slur at our having imported foreign grain, but one thing is certain, we shall bo com polled to pay it back again and that in kind (as tlioso from whom we obtained it could ill spare it) and wo shall bo ablo and cer tainly willing to do so. Tho farmer has seldom had n better prospect than that which i beforo him. The crops never looked moro promising, and hope and happiness again spread their wings to cheer and in vigorato tho desponding heart. 2v. 1. Times, . . ; Wlvg Yi I ry.
