| Frances Wright has returned to the
l;'U. States from her Hayti expedition, and!
' will doubtless soon be perigrinating
Ifthrmngh the country, to repair the mis-
Ichicfto her cause, which has been done
by her flat disciple, Master Jonnings.—-;-
Her beautiful social system is dcvclop-*f
ing itself'in New-York. A new papcr!'
is announced there, by some of her fol-
Jowers, to be entitled “The Friend of"
Equal Rights.” These equal rights mean,
r that the lazy and profligate shall have a
right to scize upon the earnings of the
industrious and virtuous part of the com-|
‘;munity, and make a grand divison of'
property,a new division to be resorted to
whenever the most worthless have dissi
‘patcd their sharc of the plunder. The!
motto of the paper is, “All chilaren have
equal rights to maintenance and educa
tion—all mankind, at the age of matu
ity, to equal property.” |
| The New-York Evening Post givcs’
Jthe following apt illustration of the bene-|
its that result from this splendid common
‘stock scheme. It is taken from the
I“Talcs of the North-West,. or Sketches
'of Indian Life and Character :»’ I
i “Among the Indians, the indolent
share the provision made by the indus
trious ; and a refusal to give food or
clothes is a thing unheard of. This very
‘genecrosity is a great bar to their improve
‘ment. Where the “Social System” pro-,?
‘vails to its fullest extent, as with the Da
'cotahs, it is not to be expected that uny!|
;individuul will exert himsell more than is"
Inecessary to meet the wants of the hour.
Ilt is no benefit to a squaw to plant a corn
field, for the harvest must be reaped by
;han(ls that did not sow. It is useless for
‘@ hunter to kill more venison than is need
'ed for the immediate consumption of his
:fumily,us th(': greater part will be eaten hle
Ethose who have been smoking by thc(
fire-side while he has been freezing nnd'
I'wuurying his limbs in the chase. ']'hel
iohstuclcs to the civilization of the lndinm-lJ
‘are indeed many ; but in the opinion of
‘one who has had many opportunitics for,
lobservmion, this is the greatest.”
l This is the paradise on earth, which
‘Miss Wright and her followers are labor-
Eing to create. A still more vivid picture
‘of this delightful social system, which is
‘offered us as a substitute for the morality
‘ofthe Bible, and the tyranny of matrimo-
I nial laws, so pathetically deplored by the’
Ipcriputetic infidel, Miss Wright, is drawn
‘iby a French traveller, who gives an ac
‘count of a Gipsey tribe, established on the
}complcte New Harmony system, in Wal
lachia The Evening Post thustranslates
this revolting detail. We present it, inall
;its disgusting particulars, for the benefit
‘of those disposed to seek a substitute for
‘the present organization of society, found
‘ed on the precepts of christian morality.
‘Here we see the practical results of the
community of property and all other rela
:‘ “I soon arrived at the camp of the
Gypsies. It was composed of smucl
“wretched tents of goats’ hair, the door{
‘of which was on the side opposite to the|
village from which I came. 1 arrived|
without being percewved. 1 applied myl
eye to one of the numerous rents in the
covering of a tent, and I saw—never didf
the eye of a civilized man behold such :lf
spectacle—l saw, around a vast fire kin
dled before the door, human creatures of’
‘wlmm I could hardly distinguish the I'urm,;
piled upon each other in disorder in the,
midst of numerous quadrupeds mingled
~with them. The sole mark of superiortty
which the human bipeds could claim was
that of being placed nearer the fire for the
purpose, without doubt, of superintending |
‘more conveniently the important affair of
supper, which was cooking inan immonsc!
chauldron, Naked children hanging tn:
the bosoms of their mothers, bare and
swarthy like themselves, formed with the
rest, hideous groupes of poverty and filth.l
I said their mothers: I am mistaken, for
‘every thing being common in the rcpub-,
lic, wives as well as children, there are’
as many mothers as wives. T'he mother’
gives her milk to the child whom she finds!
by her side; it may be her own, perhaps,’
“but she knows nothing of the matter; the
pig drains the udder of the ass, the puppyH
of the cat, every thing is pellmell, every,
thing is confounded. The demarkations
of races, the relations of family, exist no’
longer in this horrible anarchy, in this
chaos of nature, where man has no other
superiority than that of force, no other
ties than those of chance.” I‘
From the Boston Cowerier.
This venerable representative of a
former generation, now in the nincty-!
third year of his age, and which he has
almost completed, is in the full enjoyment
of most of the faculties which appertain’
to the meridian of life. During a recent |
journey to the south, the editor was for
tunate enough to fall into the company of
a respectable merchant at Baltimore, a'
particular friend of Mr. Carroll, by
whom he was inttoduced to the “time-/
henored” patriot. As we entered his’
patlor, Mr. Carroll rose to salute us with!
the customary compliments, and offered |
chairs with almost as mucli ease and firm-f
ness as a man of fifty. Mis appearance
indicated a high degree of health, which![
he affirmed he enjoyed without intcrrup-'
tion, Ilis under dress was of brown|
broadcloth—his waist-coat of the I'ushiunl
of the last century. He wore no coat, |
but a gown of the same material as th('l
waist-coat and small clothes, His huir‘
was of a silver whiteness; his teeth ap-|
parently perfect; his eye animated :md'l
sparkling, though, us he stated, it had be-|
come too dim to enable him to n:ud.—‘
His sense of hearing did not seen to be!
in the Jeast degree impaired. He spoke
with case, articulated with uncommonl
distinctness, and his voice possessed all
the clearness of vigorous manhood. He
seemed to be pleased with his friend for
having introduced a stranger, and to be
delighted in answering all our interrog
atories respecting the incidents and lhc-‘
individuals to which he had sustained an
interesting relation in the earlier part
of hislife. He spoke often of Jeflerson,
Hancock, the Adamses, and other mem
bers of the congress of seventy-six; but
he scemed to take especial delight
in talking of Dr. Franklin, whom he de
scribed as one of the most pleasant and
fascinating men he had ever known.—
He remarked that he and Franklin were
commissioners to visit Canada, and en
deavored to induce the inhabitants ol that
province to join the other colonies in de
claring themselves independent of the
mother country ; and that the journey,
though beset with difficultics and over
bad roads and sometimes through forests
where there was no road, was rendered
comparatively pleasant and agreecable
by the wit and good humor of Dr. Frank
He related many anecdotes of the!
Doctor, illustrating these distingnish(-dl
traits in his character, and which made|
him a welcome and even a favorite cum-!
panion in the politest circles of Paris.—
There was nothing in Mr. Carroll’s man
ner or conversation that indicated the
existence of that species of egotism,
which is usually the besetting imirmity]
of old age; and though he related in half’
an hour more anecdotes than we cunhl!
write down in half'a day, he was in no
‘lnstan(-n, that we recollect, the hero of'
his own story. His reminiscences were
of the mighty dead and his commenda
tions were bestow od with unlimited gen
crosity on his cotemporaries who had
gone before him to reccive the “recom
pense of reward,” and left himy as it
were, to speak their epitaph. ‘
Mr. Carroll appeared to feel alively in
terest in the ordinary topics of conversa
tion—made several inquiries of his friend
respecting political aflairs, the prospect
of business, and the progress of the Bal-|
timore and Ohio rail-road; and asked of
the editor many questions respecting
Boston, its population, improvements,
&e. He spoke more than once of the
great inventions in machinery for suving-'
lubor, of the improvements in the modc’
of travelling, and expressed a regret that
the family of Robert Fulton had not boen‘
fortunate enough to obtain a grontcr'
share of the benefits resulting from his,
improvements in the application of steam
tonavigation. He alluded several times
1o his own great age—attributed that as,
well as his health to the regularity and
temperance he had always observed in
his mode of living; said that some peo
ple thought he could live to be an hun
dred years old ; but added with a smile,
that it was not his desire to live so long,
unless his mental and physical faculties
could be retained,which he could not ex
pect to retain much longer. When we
rose to leave him, Mr, Carroll walked
down the stairs with nearly as much
'elasticity of limb and firmness of step as
either of his visiters. « |
The time we spent with this delightful
rold gentleman was short of an hour, but’
it was worth more than the fortnight we|
’hnd then just wasted in the metropolis of |
the United States, where the lives of !
modern great men exhibit but few traits
of character that entitle them to admi
ration,and their actions present but feeble
claims to the gratitude of their country
men. In the halls of Congress or in the
mansions of those who are elevated by
the partiality of the people to places of
power and dignity, one sees but little that
can be remembered with real satisfac
tion, and is not unfrequently disgusted
with much that he could take pleasure in
forgetting. The patriotism of the pres
ent day—at least that sort of patriotism
which is of the most approved stamp
and which passes current at the capitol;
seems to consist altogether in personal
attachment to men in office, and to have
no higher aim than the attainment of a
place; its “dirty assiduities are all lcvel—’
led at the” treasury. But he who visits
Charles Carroll, will perceive inthe snlci
survivor of those who signed our declar
ation of independence, a patriot of an
opposite character, and many look back
on such an interview, asto one of the
brightest spots on the tablet of memory.
The character of this revered patriot we
shall not attempt to portray; its sublime
simplicity we feel our incompetency to
describe. Nor is it in the compass of
our ability to express the emotions we
felt when our hands were cordially press
ed in that, which, more than half a cen
tury ago, set its signature to an instru
ment that certified the birth of a nation,
and placed on the declaration of our
freedom the seal of eternity.
) INTERMENT AT SrA.—One of the most
solemn and gloomy sounds that arrest the
;'(-nr of a man of war,s man, is the voice
of the boatswain and his mates calling
‘all hands to bury the dead.” It has re
ally a sense appalling sound. Immedi
ately all the crew are seen hastening on
deck,and assembling in the lee gangway.
~ The body of the deceased mariner
‘nmy be there seen, covered with the na
tional jack, extended on a plank, the
ends of which rest on two short boxes, on
alevel with the gangway. Should there
be a chaplain, (and if not, some proper
person is appointed to read the burial
service) upon his approach, the jack is
removed, and all heads uncovered, The
body is then seen, merely sewed close up
in a hammock; the poor fellow’s chief
possession when living, his only comfort
when turned in after a stormy and tem
pestuous watch, and his winding sheet|
when dead. In the foot of it are enclos-|
ed two 321 b. shot. I
Upon coming to that part ofthe scrvich
‘we therefore commit his body to the
deep,” the plank istilted, and the suc
ceeding splash soon warns us, that the
relic of mortality has entered its future el
ement, never more to be disturbed by hu
man means, It always had a remarka
ble sound to me, that splash! And I was
foolish enough the first time I was pres
ent, to stretch my neck out, to see if' 1
could discover the body after it had
reached the water. But the wave had
settled ealmly over it, and from hu
man eye it was forever shrouded. ‘Pipe
down, sir,” is the word given to the boat
swain, and in fifteen minutes all recollec
tion of what had just occurred, is com
pletely absorbed in the routine of’ ship’s
duty.—Recollections of a cruise in the Pa

Sivaivg Covpvaive to HeEavTn.—
Many parents in encouraging the devel
opement of musical talent in their chil
dren, have no other view than to add to
the number of their fashionable accom
plishments and afford them ® means of
‘innocent solace and amusement. It was
the opinion of Dr. Rush, however, that
singing is to young ladies, who by the
‘customs of society are debarred from
Ema.ny other kinds of salubrious exercise,
not only to be cultivated as an accom
plishment but as a means of preserving
health. He particularly insists that vo
‘cal music should never be neglected in
the education of a young lady; and states
that besides its salutary operation in en
‘abling her to soothe the cares of domestic
} life, and quiet sorrow by the united as
“sistance of the sound and sentiment of a
properly chosen song, it has a still more
direct and important effect. I here in
troduce a fact,” remarks Dr. Rush,
“‘ which has been suggested to me by
my profession, and that is, that the exer-
Icise of the organs of the breast by sing
ling, contributes very much to defend
‘them from those diseases to which the cli
‘mate exposes them; & those afflicted with
,conumption;nor have I ever known butone
(instance of spitting blood among them.—
'This,l believe isin part occasioned by the
strength which their lungs acquire by
onercising them frequently in vocal mu
sic, for this constitutes the essential
branch of their education. The music
‘master of our academy has furnished me
with an observation still more in favor of
this opinion. He informed me that he
had known several instances of persons
who were strongly disposed to consump
tion, who were restored to health by the
exercise of their lungs in singing.

‘What is the object of Education? To form
the character. How is this tobe done ? Not
by lessons, but principally thro’ the influ
‘ence of example, and circumstances and
l gituation. How soon is the child expos
ed to these influences? From the moment
it opens its eyes and feels the pressure of
its mother’s bosom—from that moment it
becomes capable of noticin‘g what passes
‘around it,& knowing the difference of one
‘thing from another. So powerful are the
gradual & unnoticed influences of these
i'carly months, that the infant, if indulged
or humored, may grow into a petty tyrant
‘at ten months old, and tottle about in two
I years, a selfish, discontented, irritable
ithing, that every one but the mother turns
from him in disgust. During this period,
‘every human being is making its first
‘observations,and acquiring its first expe
rience; passes his early judgments; forms
opinions, acquires habits. They may be
_ingrained into their characters for life.
Some right and some wrong notions may
take with firm hold, and some impres
sions, good or bad, may sink so deep as
to be scarcely by any force eradicated.
i'l‘hcre is no doubt that many of these incu
rable crookednesses of disposition which
'we attribute to nature; would be found,
if they could be traced, to have origina
ted in the early circumstances of life; just
‘as a deformed or stunted tree, not from
‘any natural perversity of seed, from
‘which it sprung, but from the circumstan
'ces of the soil and situation under which
it grew.—Jowrnal of Education.
