The poor man urged that he possessed nothing but a cow, which barely afforded sustenance to himself and family. Instead of pursuing the usual method when a fellah declares himself unable to pay the tax demanded of him, which is to give him a severe bastinading, the Nazir, (or govern or, ia this case, sent an officer to bring the poorVnan's cow, and desired some of the fellaheen to buy it.

He then toia mm todiviue u m- to sixty pieces, ine uuitner asseu iui nw pay, and was given the head of the cow. The' owner of the animal went weeping and complaining to the late Mahammed Dey, Defturdar. ""My master," said he, "I am op pressed and in misery: I had no property but one cow, a milch cow; and I and my fami Iv lived upon her milk; and she ploughed for me and threshed my corn; and my whole subsistence was derived fiom her: the Nasir has taken her and killed her and cut her up into sixty pieces, and sold the pieces to my neighbors, to each a piece for one ryal, so that he obtained but sixty ryals for the whole, while die value of the cow was a hun dred and twenty rials, or more. I am op pressed and in misery, and a stranger in the place, for I come from another village; but tlie Nasir had no pity on me, I and my fami Iv are beggars, and have nothing left. Have mercy on me and give me justice: I implore it by the harem." The Defturdar having caused the Nasir to be brought before him, asked him, Wheie is the cow of this fellah?' I have sold it." said the Nasir. 'For how much?' 'For sixty rials.' Why did you kill it and sell it?' 'He owed sixty rials for land; so I took the cow and killed it, and sold it for the a mounL Where is the butcher that killed it?' 'In Menoof.' The butcher was sent for. The Deftur dar said to him, Whv did you kill this man's cow?' The Nazir desired me, he answered,' and I could not oppose him. If 1 had attempted to do so, he would have beaten me and de stroyed my house: I killed it, and the Nazir cave me the head as mv rewaro.' Man,' said the Defturdar, 'do you know ilie persons who bought the meat?' The butcher replied that he did. The Defturdar snt for lha C.lnclee. of Me ctuof. and said to Jum. O, Ckadee, here is a man opposed by the jazir, whoTlas taken his cov and killed it, and sold its flesh for sixty rials. What is chy judgment? The Ckadee replied, 4He is a cruel tyrant who oppresses every one under his author ity, is not a cow worth a hundred and twenty rials, or more? And he has sold this for sixty. This is tyranny toward the own-, cr.' " Tiie Defturdar t!ea said to some of the soldiera, 'Take the Nazir and strip him and bind liim. Butcher, dost thou not fear God? Thou hast killed the cow unjustly. The butcher again urged that he was ob liged to obey the Nazir. "'Then,' sa'id tlte Defturdar, 'if I order thee to do a thing wilt thou do it?' I will do it,' taid the butcher. Kill the Nazir!' said the Defturdar. Immediately several of the soldiers pre sent seized the Nazir, and threw him down, nrt the hntrlipr wit his throat in the regular orthodox manner of killing animals for food. Now cut him up,' said the Defturdar, 'in to sixty pieces. This wat Ann the neoole concerned in the affair, and many others, looking on; but none daring to speak. The sixty peasants who had bought the meat of the cow were then called forward, one after another, and each was made to lake a piece of the flesh of the Nazii, and to pay for it two rials; so that a hundred and twenty rials were obtained from them. They wertthen dismissed; but the butcher remained. The Ckadee was asked what should be the reward of the butcher? and answered that lie should be paid as he had been paid by the-Nazir. The Defturdar, therefore, ordered that the head of the Nazir should be given to htm; and the butcher went away with this worse than valueless burden, thanking god that he had not been more unfortunate, and scarcely be lieving himself so easily to have escaped, until he had arrived at his village. The money paid for the flesh of the Nazir was given to the owner of the cow. COFFEE.

TWENTY-THOUSAND REPEALERS IN TIIE PARK! The Mass Repeal meeting assembled in the Park last evening was one of the most numer ous, and by far the most enthusiastic of any meeting we ever attended in this city. It seem ed by that meeting that every New Yorker understood properly the points of the contro versy now pending on the other side of the water. Each present seemed to feel that the union between England and Ireland, had been the cause of unparr alelled misery to fho latter country; that it had made her a mere depen dent colony, parahzi ng her commerce, destroy ing her manufactures, and making paupers of her people. All knew that Ireland, oppressed JrclamJ, lias Uy the laws or nature and justice, the right to covern herself, and to contend for that prerogative as did our fathers in '7(5. The expression of sympathy was deep and heartfelt, and what lover of liberty and human rights can fail to express and make capable that sympathy? When we consider that for 700 years Ireland and her people have been more or less the victims of English tyranny, and that since 1800, when Pitt and Castlereigh by bold and villa nous bribery, most corrupt profligacy, and cruel mercenary force consummated the unholy and unnatural union, and when we know that that union has entailed upon Ireland misery and distress beyond endurance, it i but natural that the patriotic sympathy of the whole American nation should be awakened in her cause. As a native born American we feel proud at the demonstration made yesterday. It told that the spirit of our Revolutionary fathers still burns in the boson9 of their sobs. There was one fact connected with the meeting which it mav not be amiss to record. Every officer of the meeting was a native born citizen every speaker, save one (and he the gallani old Frenchman, Major Davezac, who by the by was baotised an American in fire and blood at New Orleans,) was native and to the manor born. .We state this only to show that the Re peal excitement is deep rooted among every class of our people. Aj Mr. Carr remarked In his exceedingly able and eloquent speech, it shows "our feeling for Ireland and Liberty, our implacable hatred to British institutions and British empire." The meeting was called ! to order by the Hon. John McKeon, uponj whose motion the Hon. Minthome Tompkins, the son of the Vice President of the United States, Daniel D. Tompkins, acted as Presi-i dent. On motion of B. Connor, Esq. the fol lowing gentlemen were appointed Vice Presi dents: ' Hon. M G Leonard, Hon. D fef Jones. Hon. Charles P Daly. Hon. Eli Moore, Hon. James Lynch, Aid. Elijah F Purdy, Aid. A B Davis, Aid. John B Scoles, Henry Nicoll, Robt I Dil lon, John Lecount, John Forte, Bartlett Smith, Gerardus Boyce. Levi D Slamm, George S. Mann, Samuel Osgood, Daniel Briggs, Alfred Colvil, Wm B xMaclay. On motion of James Bergen, Esq. the follow ing gentlemen were selected as Secretaries: Bart'w O'Connor, Thos. N-Carr, Wm. C. Betts, Florence McCarthy, Emanuel B. Hart. EdmundS. Derry.Esq. then arose and said, as one claiming the city of New York as his birth place, he stood up to offer resolutions for their consideration. He felt proud to occupy the position which had been assigned him by the executive committee, and, in accordance with their wishes, he would proceed to read them. The following are the resolutions: Whereas, the Tory Ministry of Great Brit ain have promulgated a solemn declaration that justice shall never be accorded to treianc, jina threaten that if Irishmen persist in praying for it. thev shall be silenced by the bayonet. Resolved, That the friends of Ireland in N. York regard such declaration and threat with mingled feelings of indignation and horror. Rp.snlvpd. That as the love of justice is a natural and irrepressible instinct in the bosom of every Irishman, we see in this language of the Ministry no alternative but carnage and des nlatinn. unlftss that Ministry relent, or are ihftir DurDOse: for 8,000,000 of Irishmen, cheered on by the friends of liberty, justice fnd humanity throughout the civilized world, cannot still be under, misrule and oppres sion, and like a horde" of imbecile eastern ir lJ n HOLL V SPRINGS slaves, studiously forbear from molesting th eir tyrants even by a remonstrance. liesolved, That the Government of G re.it Britain has ever evinced, both in its domestic and foreign policy, a rapaciou3 and cruel disre gard ot the rights and interests of the people; that it is a political monster useful only to a class of comparatively insignificant numbers, cover ed with the plunder and stained with the blood of unoffending nations; and that, however great our indignation, we feel no surprise at it3 threa- tened course towards Ireland. And whereas, although nothing can be honed from the moral sense of such a government; yet, inasmuch as the English people, if proper ly awakened to the necessity of reforming it, have the power to do so; and inasmuch as that people are brave, liberal and just," there fore, Resolved, As the sense of this meeting, that the sympathy of nations, J properly expressed for Ireland is well calculated to arouse this dormant powerj and atfords the best an 1 most effectual meansj of averting the calamities of civil war, and ultimately obtaining for Ireland the restoration of her own legislature. Resolved, That untkr these circumstances, we deem it a moral' duty in every inhabitant of the United States of Irish birth, or Irish de scent, and highly praiseworthy and becoming in every citizen thereof, to contribute his voice. influence and pecuniary aid, to strengthen the hands of that band of Irish patriots who, with O'Connell at their head, are now strusalinrr to re-establish on Irish soil, the rights and liber ties of Irishmen. Resolved, That it is a sacred and most esti mable right of every citizen of the States, to sympathyse with the oppressed of oilier dimes, in their struggles lor liberty; and, that having exercised that right without murmur, or re proach in favor of the Poles, the Greeks and the South Americans; strangers to us in blood. language, and every tie of sympathy, save the great bond of common humanity, we shall con tinue to disregard as the offspring of ignorance, or causes more discreditable, the censures ol those, who would deny us this privilege in the present instance, where the oppressed are a people, united by" consanguinity, to a vast por tion ot our own, who contributed more than a ny other, to erect and maintain the proa J tem ple of our own national independence; and the oppressor is that nation, from which, our coun try, and its people, have suffered lhe greatest wrongs. Resolved, That the friends of Irel and in A- merica possess the power, by steady, perma nent and united action, to render effectual assis tance to Daniel O Connell and his compatriots, in their virtuous efforts to restore to Ireland an independent legislature, and that proper means ought to be adopted to that end; and therefore, Resolved, If the other Repeal Associations concur, that Annual Conventions of Delegates, from the several associations, be henceforth held successively in the different cities of the Union. Itesolved, That the first Convention be held in this city on the 25th day of July, 1S43, and that the places of holding future Conventions, the manner of convening the same, and the proper measures to be adopted, for the organization of the friends of Ireland in America into one united body of efficient sympathisers, with the repealers of Ireland be considered and determined upon, by that Uonvention. Resolved, That John Caldwell, Esq. th Treasurer of this Association, a patriot of 98, be, and he, hereby is directed to remit to the Treasurer of the Repeal Fund the bal atice of monies in his hands. - The Farmer. No one can possibly have a more exalted opinion than we profess to enjoy ol the great importance of life of i true Farmer. His condition appears to pos sess more of true independence, combinet with the real, substantial enjoyments of life than any othtr, and we long for the happy period in our existence, when, forsaking the busy, bustling, dusty streets of the city, we can realize th3 picture in Blackwood's Mag azine, which represents the Farmer as a ben efactor who, by the prudent and skilful out lay of his time and money, shall make a sin- flat.

The generous character of a sailor is nro verbial, but seldom has U fallen to our hapov ot to record an act mora trulv noble than the following, which took nlace a" fetv das ara in this city. A noor woman who nrr?iuipd twn rooms in the lower part' of commercial street. since the death of her husbanJ,sonv3 six months ago, has been compelled to earn a living for iierself and family of young children by la ving in washing; and, with all her industry and economy, her quarter rent became due before she could scrape together enouch to' discharge Oil v-' O t. Lho sole business of the landlord, from whom the poor widow hired the room, was to collect his rents, and all his recreation seemed to be to distress the virtuous. She begged him to srant her timn. IIh mva her two davs: she asked more, and he refused, stating that un- ess her rent was paid before 12 o'clock on the following iay, ecry stick of her furniture should be put out of doors. The time arrived, when, agreeably to promise, his lackeys were sent down, and the treat was begun to bo put into execution. The poor woman prayed the unfeeling landlord to desist in his purpose, but ler prayers were in vain. At length, giving back entirely to despair and wounded pride, she seated herself upon her forlorn bed, with her children'crying around. At this moment, two jolly American tars happened by, and, espying the work going on. the door opened and the wretched mother and children weeping, imme diately stopped their course, and began to re connoitre. 'I say, shipmate,'' cried one, there is some foul play going on in these waters let' over haul the craft !" "Ay, ay, Jack replied the other, "the young 'oman by the bed has hoisted signals of dis tress; lets give her a long null, The tars called the woman to them, and from her soon learned the. whole of the story. "well, now, shipmate, that land pirate ought to be lathered with hot tar, scraped with a rus ty hoop , and then keel-hauled, for laying his grappling iron on her few loose spars which are scattered about this wreck. .Never mind my good 'omen keep your spirit up, and we 11 set you in the right course, with plenty of ballast and provision. I say, you land lubbers, just belay upon them things, and we II be res ponsible for the damage. "How much do you owe this land shark?"' The woman toll him the amount, when Jack took from his wallet the same in hard currency, and paid the bill, made the woman a present of a handful of silver, while his shipmate in the mean time went to a butcher's shop near by, and brought back a laige joint of meat for the dinner . of herself and children. They left, after receiving the poor woman's blessings and wishes for their prosperity, and went whistling through the streets as though nothing had hap pened.

Ln obedi ence to law, the Governor, Secretary of State, the President and Directors of the Bank of the Slate of Alabama, have been occupied during the past week, and are still occupied, in de stroying the notes of the Branch Banks that have been withdrawn from circulation. The amount of notes ot the Mobile branch destroy ed is about SSGO,000, and that of the Montgom ery branch S950.000. Tho.e of the Decatur and Huntsville branches, as well as of the oth ers, thus destroyed, will be. officially stated next weeek. The labor of registering the notes, as they are burnt, is considerable.

Who is there that hath not experienced the soft blandishments of sweet music steal ing o'er his soul, and moving it to holy as pirations? The veriest villain upon earth cannot withstand its influence. Many a time and oft has the hardened, reckless crim inal been seen to brush away a tear from his rough cheek when listening to its soft and melting strains. We are lulled to sleep in our infant days by the melodies of the par ent's voice; for full well the mother knows the gentle and soothing influence of music and sweet sounds upon her tender offspring. In riper years, its power still moves us, ever awakening the tender sensibilities of the heart. In the house of God, when , old age and tender youth bend the knee side by side! in humble adoration to the great Parentof all, how thrill the organ's notes upon the I heart, seeming the very tongue of Heaven speaking in deep and touching strains to earth's offspring. There is a close alliance between music and religion. What were poetry without music? it is the medium through which poetry has ever wrought its chief effects they are insepa rable. How many emotions are here in digenous to the human breast that can only find vent in song! Man could never have been without it, else he would not have possessed the soul capable of such emotions.

B. S. Detn. CAUGHT A TARTAR. Every ono who has passed any length of time in New York, must have noticed the flish auction rooms that abound in Chatham street, and even in Broadway. The object of these establishments is to deceive any stranger that may drop into one of them, by oflcjrmg him one kind of goods at pale, but which, when it is bid oft", is exchanged, under the counter, for a poorer article; or else, after bidding for a part of the goods exposed for sale, the unsus pecting visitor is made to take the lot, being toldjihat he has purchased them or that what le ottered for the whole of the goods was meant as the price for each separate article. These plans are carried out by having some 1 lalt a dozen sturdy fellows in the auction room; apparently purchasers who, if necessary,; threaten personal violence, and execute it, too. It seems thai a day or two since a clergy man from Illinois, hearing the bids in one of these mock auction establishments, stent in and bid on a small card of cheap jewelry, which was knocked off to him, he being re quested to step into the back shop and settle lor the same. With this intent he proceeded to the rear of the sale room where he had a bill presented to him amounting to 690, and parcel of worthless jewelry offered him which he had not before seen. He saw their game and brushed all the articles away ex cept 'those he had bought, some of which, in cluding a watch, he put into his pocket, and the whole company thronged between him and the door, thrust their fists under his nose, and in -threatening tones demanded their S90. Be ing a man of a powerful fiame, with the sweep of each hand he scattered them hither and thither, and walked out with a genuine West ern stride, shaking them off with perfect ease I hey followed and had a parley in the front room. But he soon turned from them, telling them that the watcli would about pay him for the trouble he had been at. Ihey again op posed him but he threw them across the room with perfect nonchalance, and marched into the street. He went about his business, re maining master of the watch, as well as of the satisfaction of having triumphed over a gang of 6coundrels. lhe villains will probably be more cautious who they practice their game upon m future, h. b. Democrat. From the Mississippian TO THE TEOPLE OF MISSISSIPPI. The humble individual who addresses you, is not a cidWale.,"iibrtIoes he expect ever to be a candidate, for any office under heaven; but he is impelled by a disinterested I and sincere devotion to your welfare, to pro pose to you a plan for settling the impor tant and distracting questions, about thele gality and payment of the bonds made in the name of the Planters' Bank and Union Bank of Mississippi. The contrariety and conflict of opinions which exist on those questions;.the ability and zeal with which they are advocated by those who entertain them, and the harsh epithets and violent de nunciations, which some of the disputants are in lhe habit ol using towards each other will produce nothing but angry passions and bad feelings between individuals, agitate and excite theiublic mind and feeling, de grade the democratic party and insure its defeat, as long as those questions remain un settled. For the purpose then of - prevent ing such a defeat of the great and blessed principles of democracy, and to bring those questions and Iheir discussion to a certain, speedy and final close, I propose to place them before you and to call on you as the highest tribunal in such cases, io decide them in this way. At our next general elec tions. let there be two columns for each bank at the head of one column for each bank write these words: for paying the bonds; and at the head of the other column for each bank write the words: against the bonds. And let each voter be called on to vote for or.against paying the bonds of each of those banks, and let it be distincly understood by and between the people and the candidates for the office of Governor and for the State Legislature, that the vote of the majority of each county shall be considered, and acted on as the opinion, the will and the instruc tions of the county to its delegation in the legislature, and that a majority of the voters of the whole State, shall be considered and supported by the Governor elect, as the o-. pinion and will of the State. Let the leg islature at its next session pass an act for or against the payment of these bonds, accor ding to the vote of the people. Let that act if it should be in favor of paying both or ei ther of those bonds be then published and voted on by tha people, according to the requisitions of the constitution, in article 7lh, section 9, prescribing the mode -of ren dering the State liable for the payment of redemption of any loan or debt; and let the succeeding legislature by a constitutional majority, pass or reject the act according to the vote of the people. By adopting and carrying out this plan, it will be useless to enquire whether your candidates for Gover nor or the Legislature, are for or against paying the bonds of those banks or either of them; if elected, each will be bound by the vote of his constituents, and regardless of his own opinion. He must speak their voice and vote their will or resign hif statitid. All that you need to ask or enquire of about a candidate will be, is he capable, is he honest and is he a friend to a free and equal govern ment. The subject of the Unioa Bank bonds has been discussed by some with a degree of in tolerance and violence, that it was distress ing of humanity, derogatory to the rights of freevmen, degrading and humiliating to the dignity of man.- The disputants have been in the habit of calling each other fool, knave and thief. I have read, and listened with attention and respect, to every argu ment I have net with I have reflected long seriously arfd anxiously on the subject,- and have always thought that I could clearly conceive a process of reasoning on the ques tion by which be mind of ,the -most most sensible and honest m.m might be brought t- either conclusion or opinion, I never could find it in my bead or my heart to reconcile it with my notions or principles of true democracy, io think, feel or speak with such harshness of any one who differed with me on tne subject; and although 1 long since lormed my opinion on the question of the Union Bank bonds, and luve always ex pressed that opinion fieely fully and fearless ly in private conversation, yet I do not deem that opinion of any importance to the public, and were I to proclaim it, I might be charged with a self importance I do not feel. All that I desire, and my only object in ad dressing you, is lo ofler these suggestions. with the hope that they may allay the agi tation and avoid tbe evil consequences, with which the State is most seriously threat ened from those exciting and distracting questions; and I know of no other power than the people, by which those questions can be finally decided as regards themselves. And when they shall have fairly and fully ecided them, it seems to me that every good citizen of the community, for the sak3 ol the first great principles of our govern ment, and for the sake ol quiet and peace i i ,i " among ourselves, snouiu acquiesce in ana support that decision. And I will say and- pledge myself, that should you decide eitner orall of those question contrary to my o- ninion, I will notonlv acquieice, but contri bute my humble mile Jo support that decis ion against all the world.

OUR CANDIDATES, We this morntng atirtwwnee-tmTcatwlitJates-for the distinguished offices of President of these States and Governor of Georgia. In doing so, it is only necessary to State that while we would, in Convention, have de posited our vote for Martin Van Buren.who we believe, is a pure and enlightened states man and entitled to the full confidence of the Republican Party whose principles he has so ably sustained, we now, as we would had we been in Convention, yield to the ex pressed will of the majority of our party, and unfurl the standard of Democracy with the name of John C. Calhoun inscribed on its field. We must take a more convenient oppor tunity lo dwelt uponfthe distinguished ser vices of the late Senator of South Carolina and his ardent support of the principles iden tified with lhe faith we cheerish. We hence forth support him for the Presidency, will ing, however, to return to our first love, should the ialional Convention, in May next, decree that Mr. Van Buren, or any other gentleman entitled to their nomina tion, shall be the Republican candidate in IS44. In denouncing our determination io rally around the person of Mr. Calhoun, as the standard bearer of our dherished principles we khould say, while the ex-President was our first choice for the confest at hand, Mr. Calhoun was our second, and consequently we anticipated the period when if in life, we should, in 1S4S, support him as the suc cessor of Mr. Van Buren. The lieople of Georgia through their Democratic delegttei have decided otherwise. Harmony of ac tion being essential to the vindication and triumphant success of sacred principles we accord with that decision and with a firm re liance on the justice of our case proclaim to the Republicans of the Union, our confi dence in John C. Calhoun. We have reserved but a brief space id speak of our Gubernatorial candidate. lu council and in the field, Major Cooper hi been a faithful representative d galLint soldier. Can we say less than that one su pure in patriotism, and so sterling in the re quisiles which should entitle a citizen to the confidence of his felldwnien, will receive our cordial support.

Foot has come out in the Mississippian declining to run for U- S. Sen ator. He wished it distinctly understood that he declines in favor of the Hon. Roger Barton. Gen. Foot would have done honor to the Stale, in the U. S. Senate, but we are perfectly satisfied that Maj- Barton, if elect ed to that. station, would prove ;a trump jtt his place, inaugusl body. Lotc.
