HOLLY SPRINGS: :::::::::::::APR1L SO. ADVICE TO YOUNG LADIES. Some of you wiil, perhaps, smile at our i.r.oct rr,nfftt(,n . that we feel a certain de- fti.lSllV"J ww.."-. w gree of embarrassment in approaching you You may think it would be more appropri ate for one of your own sex to address you; but it is well for you to know the opinions of men with regard to your character and conduct. You were created to complete the happiness of man, and he surely must be the best judge of what pleases him mostly Men do not like in women the rough stern qualities which distinguish their own sex Ihey do the opposite. It is almost needless to say, that a gentle, kind and affectionate manner is most attractive. This has been often known to win when beauty and wit have failed. Beauty is indeed delightful, but it reaches only t-He eye it touches not the heart. Witt powerful, but dangerous; it oftener produces fear than love. We may admire a witty, sarcastic, talented lady, but we seldom love her. Plain common sense, improved by an education calculated for use rather than show, a moderate share of beau ty, not enough to produce vanity or excite envy, habitual good nature, a manner sim pie and unaffected, warm a:' I affectionate, avoiding the extremes of offensive familiar ity and repulsive dignity, with uniform sin cerity and candor these are the characteris tics which soonest attract at.d secure the love and devotion of man. They are most desi rable in a young lady, they are all important in a wife. You should be affable and obliging to all; but it is not expected, nor is it proper, that you should be as cordial and familiar to strangers es to your old acquaintance and intimate friends. Some ladies, by attempting to be universal ly popular, acquire the regard and love of none. The devoted love of one warm, pure and generous heart, is worth all the general admiration that a reigning belle com mands. To so conduct yourself towards ev ery gentleman a3 to make him believe that you have a particular partiality for him, is coquetry. This course will so&e rervier you contemptible in the estimation of all. You will have the respect and confidence of no one. If gentlemen coquet with you.it is no reason why you should with them. One wrong is no justification for another. By a proper course of behaviour, you can soon make the male coquet ashamed of himself. He is a despicable character truly. You should never imitate him. For your own peace of mind, for your happiness in after life, never practice so deceitful and perni cious a course, as it will at last wholly unfit you for the entertainment of a pure, genu ine , ardent attachment, without which you must be miserable and wretched as a wife. Let your dress, however costly, be plain, neat and well fitted. Gaudy colours and an abundance of finery are very bad taste. A lady should always be sufficiently well dress ed to see her friends whenever they may happen to call;. to keep them waiting a long time, indicates that you, in your usual attire, are not fit to be seen, and have to make pre paration forthe interview, or that you feel a repugnance for it. "Either of these will les sen you in the opinion of the well bred gen tleman. We know a ladv who made herself extremely popular by meeting her friends at the door with a smile and an extended hand That girl knew something of human nature. Do not attempt to improve the complexion which nature has given you by art. The plainest natural face ever seen looks better than a painted one. Pare water is the best application you can make; it is superior to all the cosmetics. Divide your time between your books and your work, neglecting nei ther for gossip and slander. And lastly, should the editor of the Guard become lone some and weary of his present state of sin gle blessedness, and summon up sufficient courage (for he is said to be a vary bashful man,) to ask some one of you, whom he may think the kindest, the gentlest, the loveliest the mo3t constant of all, to become his wife ly, Yes.w Texas.

IT ROBEBT JOSSELYN. My mother! thinkest thou of thy poor boy, The wayward offspring of thy older years? Is not thy heart a stranger to all joy, Thy bosom filled with anxious doubts and fears? Dost thou not often vainly seek repose, When night approacheth and thy work is done? And, if, perchance, thy wearied eyelids close,, Do not mysterious, awful visions come, Until thou startest up from troubled sleep, To ponder on the past and for thy loved one weep? My mother! thou hast ever been to me, Since first, with laughing eye and rosy chceK, I sat in playful mood upon thy knee, And learned some fond and foolish Words to speak, All that the tenderest and best should be; From the dark'prospects of a world like this, My nobler, holier thoughts are turned to thee, To that lost season of un equaled bliss, When care was not and life and hope were young, And flowers fresh and bright around my path way hung. My mother! there is music in that name! The warmest friendships of our youth decay, But thou hast been, wilt ever be the same A mother's love can never pass away! In wealth and honor, poverty and shame, It changeth not unless more pure to glow, Dear as her own she holds her offspring's fame, Will share his pleasures, mitigate his wo, And when friends, fortune.character, are gone, And all but her revile, the mother still loves on! My own dear mothei! do not weep, thy child Hath tasted of a bitter cup, but now 'Tis vain to talk of passions strong and wild, When light hath flashed upon the clouded brow, And hope hath raised her drooping head and smiled. Mid fertile fields with fragrant verdure clad, Refreshed by southern breezes soft and mild, O, if he would, ho cannot well be sad! Tho' far his homo and kindred, one is near, Who will protect thy child my mother, canst thou fear? Variety. BANKS IN MASSACHUSETTS.

VIRGINIA AND HER BANKS. The Legislature of Virginia has at length passed an act concerning the Banks in that Commonwealth, which requires them to re sume specie payments on the first dav oi November next, until which time issuspen X 1 ded the operation of the law that subjects them to a penalty of ten per. cent, damages and fifteen per cent, interest for the non payment in specie, on demand, of all their notes, bills, or checks. The act also autho rizes the banks to continue the issue of notes of the denomination of one and two dollars until the first day of January next the said notes in all cases to be payable in snecie on demand, and the amount in cir- g culation at no time to exceed six per cent of the entire capital of the bank or branch issuing them. Another provision of this act repeals so much of the law of 1637, estab lishms ceneral regulations for the mcorpo ration of banks, as provides thai the bonu? of one-fourth percentum paid out ol each semi-annual dividend upon the stock of the several banks of the Co nmon wealth shall be Daid bv creating additional stock to that a monat in the name of the Commonwealth for the benefit of the fund for internal im Drovement, and directs the said bonus, in r.ludinrr the bonus on . the stock, to be paid semi-annually by the banks into the State Treasury, to be applied in payment oi inter pst on the public debt created for interna improvement The act goes into effect from the time of its passage.

HOLLY SPRINGS, They irill never be tried.'!! the United States Bank conspirators that is our solemn belief a belief based not only upon those public facts which their apparent prosecution so far ha3 elicited, but also upon a few pri vate ones, which it would not be polite for us to disclose at the present moment. In truth, we have been put in possession of a scheme of fraud, villainy and corruption, too astounding for belief; a scheme which has been and is being systematically carried out, by these bank conspirators, their agents, in struments and tools a scheme which has thus far enabled them to plunder the commu nity, enrich themselves, beggar our commu nity, transgress our laws, defy our courts of justice, and trample with perfect and arro gant impunity, upon every symbol of good government, moral or conventional, human or divine. In good time, we shall disclose all we know on the subject. At present, we are only desirous of impressing upon the minds of our readers the serious truth, that our laws in practice, really do recognize a distinction between the rich and the poor that 3essrs. Biddle, Cowperthwaitc, An drews & Co., after having been bound over by the Recorder of our city for a "conspira cy to defraud," will never be tried for that offence and that a state of things, so de moralizing in its effects, so destructive of every principle of civil rights, in a land pro fessing to be one of equality as well as lib erty, demands immediate attention and cor rection at the hands of every patriotic citi zen. The writs of habeas corpus in the case of these conspirators, where are they? They have been removed from the Court of Com mon pleas to the Court of Criminal Sessions. Well, the court has appointed Monday next to hear the argument in favor of listening to the writs separately. It may be weeks be fore the arguments on all the writs can be heard and a decision given. By next Mon day, the present grand jury will be no more, and the next may be one just suited to the wants of the conspirators. Thus no bill of indictment will be found against these indi viduals; and notwithstanding all the exer tions of their victims and the honest conduct of Recorder Vaux, (whom the bank conspi rators are now moving heaven and earth to crush for his incorruptible independence,) Messrs. Biddle, Co wperthwaite, Andrews & Co. will be able to snap their fingers at the puhlic and over their champagne and regalias, jangh at the folly of those who, for once, imagined that a rich man, with all his influ ence and means, could be tried at the bar of justice, like a poor half-starved mechanic, or a contemptible, loaf-of-bread-stealing, srhall-polatoo rogue.

Her national debt now tasks the powers of arithmetic to calculate its magnitude, and every article, from the most splendid pal ace down to the smallest tack on the lid of a coffin is taxed to pav the. interest. Perhaps all the wit of the kingdom could not discover another item for taxation so minute has been the search; and yet though the nation ab solutely staggers under the weight of the assessment now levied it is ascertained that there is every year a deficit in the re ve- nue. ine excess mis year iuus up iu Jjr 000,000- This must be met by new loans or bv increasing the rate of taxation. Can this be done? How long will human nature tol erate such exactions? Taxation is the mother of revolution. Free Trader. rjQIt seems that Texas is a party to the treaty lately made by England with certain Powers, for the suppression of the slave trade, and which fully concedes the right of search. This as the New Orleans Courier observes, is certainly incompatible with the supposi tion, that England is prompting the inva sion of Texas and supplying means to Mexi co. But will not the people of the young Rprmblie. the planters and slaveholders, re volt against such a treaty with England? Can they permit their government to sign what, in effect, will be a bond of maratime vassalage? It is said also that an English gentleman appointed Texian Consul at London.has made a contract to settle 1.500 families upon the upper Colorado, and has gone to England to procure the emigrants.

I ar ticled fifty acres ot lani, built me a log house and cleared and fenced 25 acres of it with my own hands. This has required six long years of incessant hard labor, in which my constitution has suilered much. 1 have ire quentlv worked on my fallow until eight and 9 o'clock in the evening leaving my wife and little boys to milk the cows, fead the pigs, and do other work about the house. NTot having fully paid up for my jlahd and the landholder wanting his pay, 1 con cluded to sell out my improvement and move to Wisconsin, and there enter govern ment land at ten shilling an ncre. Oa the 2Sth dav of last month I sold out my im provement for $300, my two cows, and some other personal property lor $yj. l re ceived in payment $134 in Granville bills, $1S6 in Urbana, and the balance, $72, in Wooster,St. Clair, Cleveland, bandusky and Massillion bills. Learning that the Granville and Uubana had failed, I imediately went to Cleveland and sold the seventy-three dollars for sixty three dollars eignty-seven and a half cents w nr 11 a i r- in specie. 1 was onerea tnree shillings lor Granville, and two shillings for Unrbana, in goods. The result is, I have received sixty thre dollars eighty-seven and a nail cts, tor 6vears hard toil, a little over $10 a vear and the bankers have got the rest of it. But blame myself m part. I have always been inenaiy to oanKs, and have excused their conduct for the last five years, and voted for those men to go to the Legislature who have there voted against making the private property of bank owners liable to i, and against laws other wise securing the rjublic nrrainstloss bv the banks, and finally last fall, for Mr. Bliss, who has this winter voted against obliging a broken bank to receive its own bills in payment for debts due it. But I shall do so no more. I shall now quit a partv whose course of policy has brought such ruin upon me and the whole country. I am now convinced that "of all the contrivances to fertilize the rich man's field with the sweat of the poor man's brow," banking is the most effectual. February 10. 1S42. . J. S. Rhods Island. A pair of Constitutions. It is known to every one that the people of this.

Attempts have been made by the masses of tha people at different times to have a convention called and frame a constitution, which would operate more equally by extending the right of suffrage.

Permit me to call the attention of farmers to the cultivation of mustard sed. 1 believe it is not generally known how large a quan tity of this peed is annually consumed. It is imported from Holland and the more southern parts of Europe, and fold in our athmtic markets at from three to fur dollars per bushel. It is also ra?ed in England nnd manufactured for the table, in which state it is exported to litis country in lare quanti ties. I believe that farmers who have soils suited to the growth of this seed will find it much more, pr.-table than any other crop. It requires a rich, ch'an, moist soil; should be sowed about the time of other spring grains. Four quarts of brown sr ed will stock an aero rrondcast. It is sometimes ?ow d in drills, anil hoed. It usually -ripens quite uneven, and should be cut when it is sufficiently green fo prevent waste by shelling, and stack ed upon canvass, the top being thatched with straw to protect it from the weather. It should remain in this situation till it is thor oughly cored. By tips treatment, the un ripe seeds will be" sufficiently pnurished by the stalk to render them plump and sound. It should be threshed upon canvass, as there would be considerab waste by removing it to the threshing floor. Particular pains should be taln in cleaning seed. It will or dinarily yield from ten to twenty bushels per acre. Several individuals in the town of ' . i Kt.i, ,.;urt,j . I ' . . r ' -Z? n : " ine rate oi iwentv uuMieia-iici iiuiu. iuiwu , . . . , .
