miserable looking set. Capt. Morin. for

his son, were among the number. I"13

About two o'clock, some twenty prson
crs were marched into town from Lacinue,
escorted by a party of the Lachine cavihy.
They were taken in arms at Chateaugy
And were secured with ropes as usual; but
as there were soma distinguished characters
among them, the respective ranks they held j
in the patriot army, were conspicuousiyev
hibited by placards on their backs. Dr.
Newcomb, his son, and several whose ap
pearance denoted them to be sympathi'.
were among this lot. Both the Doctor and
his son are high in rank in the patriot army.
About 4 o'clock. His Excellency r
John Colborne and Staff landed from tL
Princess Victoria. He was enthusiastic; l'y
cheered by the crowds assembled on tl
wharves. One prisoner was brought o r
at the same time, an old inhabitant, said U
be the murdererof the late Mr. Walker.
Several American muskets and bayonets
were in possession of the soldiers attached'
to Sir John Colborne staff. They arc ntr.

Mason's and Dixon's Line. This
Dounciary is so termed trom the name of
Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon
the two gentlemen who were appointed to
run unfinished lines in 17C1, between
Pennsylvania and Maryland, on the ter
ritories subjected to the heirs of Perm and
Lord Baltimore. A temporary line had
been run in 1739, but had not given sat
isfaction to the disputing parties, although
it resulted from an agreement in 1739 be
tween themselves. A decrco had been
made in 1618, byrKing James, delinea
ting the boundaries between the lands
given by charter to the first Lord Balti
more, and those adjudged to his majesty
(afterwards to William Penn) which divi
ded the tract of land between Delaware
Bay and the Eastern sea on one side, and
the Chesapeake Bay on the other, by a
line equally intersecting it, drawn from
Cape Henlopen, to the 4th decree of
North latitude. A decree in chancery
rendered tho K ng's decree imperative.
But the situation of Henlopen became long
a subject of serious, protracted, and ex
pensive litigation, particularly after the
a tho f Pen n, in 1718 and of Lord Balti
vvto in 1714; till John , and Richard and
'l'r nnas Penn, (who had become the sole
j tvpnetors of the American possession of
t n ir tamer miiiam; and Cecclius, Lord
1 . timorc, grandson of Charles, and great
i'v: idson ofCecilius, theoriginal patentee,
( iMorcd into an agreement on the 10th
M :y, 1727. To i his agreement a chart
appended, which ascertained the site
( " Cape Henlopen, and delineated a divis
i -si by an East and West line, running
..--tward from that Cape, to the exact
toddle of the peninsula. Lord Baltimore
i.ecame dissatisfied with this agreement
and endeavored to invalidate it. Chancery
suits, kingly decrees and proprietary ar
rangements followed, which eventually
produced the appointment of commission
ers to run the temporary line. This was
effected in 1739. But the cause in chan
cery being decided in 1739 new commis
sioners were appointed, who could not,

atllallfux, stole a sail and some rigging

beng subsequently at Boston, the captain
of he American schooner procured a search

bo;rJ of John Bull, at the same lime ar
reting the suspected sailors, and bringing
thea up for examination. The counsel
for he defence contended that an Ameri
can court bad no jurisdiction over an of

just.ee committed the sailors for trial. The
Boson Post says:

Others think that the prosecution should
have been brought in the U. S. district
court and another grave set are of opinion
that tie prisoners should have been sent
back a Halifax for trial. All fudge! The
C;lptan of the American vessel can take
possesion of the property that was stolen
from him, but he can do nothing with the
thieves till ho catches them in Halifax, and
there Ts no power by which they can be
sent hihk there, except kidnapping the

coast of Africa was seen, a few days prior

the Braze Head Breakers, where she
would hav?been dashed to pieces, and all

of the Breakers, and with great exertions
succeeded in towinjr her to sea."

Th e following striking passages arerom
the "Journal of the late Mrs. Sophia Man
ning Phillips," a charming writer and poet
ess, who died several months
since, in
Louisville. Kv
"Home beloved and early home I bid
thee hail again ! Changed as thou art from
constant cheerfulness to the shadow of sor
row; lost, blessed scene! as is thy sound of
blithe voices, and laughter, and music, and
harmless, kindly mirth, my very heart is
glad glad, (hough the tear is in my eye
to return again among thy still and dear fa
miliar things. God' how they rise up, and
speak to me, as with a voice! I hear the
echo of my childhood's laughter! I seethe
gleaming face3 of my childhood's mates! I
hail anew the wonder of the waters ! I chase
the startled wings of fleeing butterflies.
Dear, holy home! might I but die within
thy well known sight! But if I am toleav
thee, I will tear from my bosom, for the
sake of him that lovcth me, all wild and
haunting memories. Not once hereafter
will 1 seek the dark corner, to gather up
thy vanished blessedness, to court thy hoard
ed hours of merry times and fresh to see
thee as thou wert, my home, and weep !
"1 know not wherefore, but this Sunday
afternoon reminds me r.iore strongly and
strangely than common, of olden wordsand
days jThe warm air is abroad, mocking
the reign of dismal February; the snow pat
ters fiou the leaves in twinkling drops; the
sun just like sunsof other days! is on
my heud; I think of thee, my lost and
sainted ! of the heavens spread out
in peacepnd love above mine eyes; of the
earth, wijh all its vanished or forth-ccming
beauties or ties, or trials, stretching beside
and beyond me. So the winter is rolling
onward aid avyay. The Spring! Perchance
she even pow sceketh her buds to awaken
their slubber and her breezes to attune
them to njelody . She looketh, perchance,
to her ski4, that their tint be forever un
matched ! b her lloda, that they bound un
delaying, Ore long at her call ! There shall
be spread iver the sweet pathway of green
ness, and te that live on its bosom, shall
watch a!onf its valleys for feet which come
not, and lien among its pleasant sounds
for vcices which arise not. And this is the
cup which te must all drink, and in our
turn be moyned for a day, and missed for
a day, and p down to the dust and grave!
Who will wpand pray for me, when my
hourcomelht. Perhaps none. This is a
bitter and sa( thought now, were I dwell
upon it, butwhen the time indeed is at
hand, when tie breath is goinj awav, and
the eyes can io more lift up themselves to
earth or hea'en, and the memories or
scenes of the fife that is leaving us are blot
ted and unrecognized, it matters little, I
ween , whoseiand is on onr head, or whose
yet glowing lp.is. pressed to ours the fa
ding and the fold '. It matters not !
" 'Thy last beam descending; sun,
Falls to my page from yonder heaven;
I crave I yearn 'tis vainly Jofe!
Nor sound nor signal thence is given,
The suuls cf those we lose and love,
May spread their holy wings around
Earth's whi?pers but above,
Beck'netb no finger, breaks no sound!
I see the summoned stars ulons,
Gutherin-r in silence round the throne,"
Reasons why Ladies do not Waltz.
Because the delicacy thereof is not unques
tionable. ;
Because many men who waltz, declare
that they should not be willing to see their
wives and sisters do so.
Because ladiesj who waltz, often ns.i
"do vou think thefe is any harm in walk
ing?" j
Because after nifew turn, the lady wait
ing, breathes haro her face and neck are
flushed, her hanlkerchief crosses her foie
head, all of which; i3 sadly , unbecoming.
Because the it-pose made in waltzingis

Quarterly Review thus explains thooigin
of this popular name for hi3 Satanicma-
icstv: "In the transformation ot me
elves and fairies of our toreiatners into
devils, by the monkish legends, the n-mes
were sometimes retained and curkusly
applied. Old Nick is one of this class.
The Nickers held a conspicuous p!ae in
German Romance and story. They jerc
water-faries, and dwelt in lakes and ri'ers,
as well as in the sea. As late as t fif
teenth century, a manuscript dictionary,
in English and Latin, explains Nickej by

porting every effort of a liberal, usoful,
and laudiblc tendency in the community,
we enter into 'the undertaking with
confident hope of success.
Wcfwill commence our career on lha
great ocean of politics .with no promises
of occupying a neutral position our prin
ciples are purely democratic, and wo wil
give a firm and fearless support to tho
measures of the present Administration of"
the General Government, believing them
to be in the highest degreo conducive to
the future welfare and permanent interei
of the South, and in accordance with th
true meaning and spirit of tho Constitu
tion. Being a strict constructionist oftho
Constitution wc? shall oppose the estab
lishment of a National Bank as an unau
thorized and dangerous grant of power,
such as was never contemplated by it
fiamcrs. We shall also oppose a National
Bank, believing it totally inexpedient and
dangerous in the highest degreo to lha
liberties of the people.
Wo shall ever be found opposed to tha
misuse or the assumption of powor,
whether in the Federal Executive head,,
legislative body, or judiciary of tho coun
try. It will be our purpose to laud virtue
though clad in the habiliments of poverty,
and denounce vice whether in high or
low places. In doing this, we shall speak
of men and measures as we find them,,
and with firm grasp attempt to tear tho
veil under which political deformity hm
sought shelter in these evil days of polit
ical apostacy.
In the discharge of our duty as the eon
ductor of a political press, we shall scru
pulously avoid wounding individual and
private feelings. "Our banner is now to
tho battlo and the breeze." Wo hav
planted our feet upon the ramparts of tha
Constitution, and call upon the people to
come to the rescue. The constitutional
banner waves over us in this contest for
free principles, and if we fall let its sacred
folds be wrapped around us.
