Oh I may I not as happy dwell Within my unillumined cell ! Mar I not leap and sing and play, And turn my constant night to day ? 1 nerer saw the sky, the sea, ' The earth was nerer green to me. Then why, oh ! why should I repine, For blessings that were never mine ? , Think not that blindness makes me sad, My thoughts, like yours, are often glad.

PEACE DEPARTMENT. LwfmlmM mt War tor CfcrUtlM Rxam But some say, if these pacific principles - i . prevail, our ii Denies ana civu rignts win Dt. torn from us; and we shall become a prey to every , inrader. Surely not, un fess the Lord hath forsaken the earth, and .forgotten his people ; for the Psalmist de clares whoso putteth his trust in the Lord ahall bo safe." But, from whence ariseth the dread of being destroyed by our enemies, if we do not go to war with them? Does it not indicate a disbelief in the superintendence of divine Providence? And that we place greater confidence in man for protection, than in the Supreme Almighty Governor, in, whose hands are the issues of life and death t Whence com eth distrust of his providential care over us, but from a consciousness of disobedi ence, and consequent guilt ? For God's promisee Tare all yea and amen forever ; and lie has promised, M If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, 1 will gire you peace in your land, and ye shall lie-down, and none shall make you afraid." , The Savior's language is equal ly encouraging, " not a sparrow, is forgot ten before God,-but eren the very hairs of your heads are all numbered; fear not, therefore; ye arc of more value than many sparrows. . The apostle Peter's doctrine is similar, The eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayers. And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good) But, and if ye suffer for righte ousness sake, happy are you : be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled, but sanctify the Lord God in your hearts." .Will uot a firm belief in these express 5romiscs,.do away all distrust of Provi ential protection? Were the minds of mankind "brought into a true christian state, the protection of divine Providence would humbly and safely be relied upon : "but while' they suffer avarice, ambition, and revenge, to influence them, they will always find a pretext for war : and in these dispositions, they cannot trust divine 1'roviaence ; and, inaeea, tney nave no right to expect his protection. - A remarkable instance of the protecting ; fi r r " care oi mo &,ca rcscTTeroi racu, we are furnished with" in the injunction and prom ise to the Jews : "Thrice in the year shall tour males appear before the Lord," (at Jerusalem.) M Neither shall any man de- ire your land, wnen ye snail go opto ap pear before the Lord your God thrice in j the year." I Which promise, Jotephusthe Jewish historian' informs, was so punctu ally fulfilled, that though their enemies kiiWthcso stated timet, end that their cis i ies were defenceless, yet at these seasons, they were never invaded : 'The terror of the Lord being upon the cities Tound a- bout them. A recent account pf the effects of reli ance on Providential protection, instead of the arm of flesh, we have in the settlement of Pennsylvania. Its first European in habitants, were principled against fight ing. They accordingly did not provide themselves with any weapons of defence, though surrounded by nations of warlike Indians, among whom they lived m har mony, during the time they had the reins of government in their hands, which was about 70 years while the other provinces were involved in almost continual warfare with the natives. The reply of John the Baptist to the soldiers, ' do violence to no man, and be content with your wages," is sometimes advanced in support of war : but let all soldiers take thi3 advice ; " do violence to no man," and there will bean end of wars. And should it be granted (which we have no grounds for) that John tolerated war ; yet this is not the point, as he was under the dispensation of the law, when to love enemies had not been taught mankind. To be continued. William Penn, although made proprietor of Pennsylvania by a grant from king Charles the 2d, did not consider this a sufficient title, while the land was in possession of its native inhabitanas. He therefore, consistently with the christian's law, of" doing unto all men, as we would they should do unto us," purchased ot them their right : and as he I wished to extend his settlements, he contin ued to make purchases, and thus obtained their confidence, and sustained peace. From the New-York Spectator. ADVICE TO INVALIDS. The Danish island of St. Croix has become the most popular, as it has proved the most healthy location in the West Indies, for those invalids of the Northern States who are suffering from pulmonary affections. Last winter and spring we were favored with a series of descriptive letters from that island, which attracted much attention. The conse quence has been, that both the gifted wri ter and ourselves, have been repeatedly applied to for information upon various matters connected with health anJ com fort, by those who are desirous of exchang ing the rigors of a northern winter for the balmy breezes of " the sweet south." In consequence of these applications, the writer of the communications referred to has prepared the following article, in the hope that it may be generally published, for the benefit of those whom it may con cern : ST. CROIX. Messrs. Editors : I have had repeated enquiries addressed to me, in relation to the beautiful island of Sl Croix, where 1 passed the last winter, and from which some letters of mine were published in your valuable paper; and it has been suggested to me, that I might render a useful service by sending you another let ter, giving such information as invalids, about proceeding to it for health, would generally wish to obtain. It gives me pleasure to comply with the suggestion, although I have many cares, which for bid me to give so much time to the mat ter, as might be desirable. I passed a de lightful winter in St. Croix, and I beheve few spots on the face of the earth, so easi ly accessible, offer so many solid advan tages and comforts to the invalid. The temperature is very uniform there are no stormy days during the winter months. and I believe there will not ordinarily oc cur three days from November to May, the time when invalids usually take their departure in which the most delicate per son would be prevented by the weather from taking free exercise in the open air. And then the roads, we know nothing like them in this country so smooth so firm. It is luxury to roll over them. They are all macadamized, and in the towns, are kept with the utmost neatness, as in fact they are all ovf-r the island. But I need not repeat what I wrote to you last winter: suffice it to say, that what I then wrote, is plain matter of fact. The balmy air, the rides, most agreeable from fine roads and fine scenery, and the excel lent fruits, &c. of the island, make a win ter's residence there delicious much too Eleasant in the recollection to one, who as the near prospect before him of a north ern-winter. Passports. I should recommend to persons going there to take passports from the Secretary of State's office. It is not absolutely necessary ; but if one wishes to visit St. Thomas, or go to any other stand, it will save some expense and the trouble of taking a new passport from the police office. At West tnd the very obliging Judge Andresen, master of the -ii t , l- j ii j j puuee, win ia ice nis aouar ana enaorse an American passport for any person who is leaving the island. If one has no American passcon. he must take out a Danish one, and ray two and ahalfdol- ars to go to bt. 1 nomas, and on leaving the island for a foreign port, about ten. At liass ,nd (Bassin,) there is not quite so much respect for the powers at Wash ington,. Frequently persons are. inclined torisit other islands, either to the windward, by the steamers from St. Thomas, or the Spanish islands of Porto Rico and Cuba. on the way home. Passports may then become matters of more urgent necessity. Money. Letters of credit will enable HEALTH DEPARTMENT. persons t0 provide themselves ; with cashier as to the raising. In regard tort. at St Croix. Blot in the trade with St. Croix our merchants are obliged to make the greater part of their purchases with cash ; and bills on New-York - are at a considerable discount last spring not much less than ten per cent. American half dollars are perfectly current there, as j are all the silver coins in use among us, as large as a quarter. Clothing. The weather at St. Croix is uniform, and as warm as our ordinary summer weather ; and a person in health may wear such clothes as he does here in summer ; but the continued warmth opens the pores to use a common way of speaking and in the open West India houses it is somewhat difficult to avoid draughts. Thin flannels should there fore be worn next the skin, and the upper garments, while they should not be so thick and heavy as to heat a person, should afford a pretty good defence against sudden changes. Gentlemen on the isl and wear very commonly thin pantaloons, but almost always cloth coats. A linen jacket is, however, sometimes comforta ble, and a frock coat of thin cassimere or merino, would be a very suitable garment for common use. Hair stocks are the most proper covering for the neck. Gen tlemen are sometimes advised there to wear flannel about the neck, especially if they have bronchitis, in order to prevent sudden chills of the parts. The practice of so closely covering the throat is now condemned by our best physicians, and a common stock and flannel subject the neck to profuse perspiration render the parts tender, and expose to colds. It is safer to discard the flannel, and leave the neck as free as may be. In a climate so uniformly warm, a northerner is liable to get into a profuse perspiration and violent heats, upon using any vigorous exercise, and these are unsafe. They will lead to colds, if they are not followed by more se rious consequences. He will be frequent ly admonished, as I often was, while walk ing at my ordinary rate, not to walk too fast. These observations may serve in some manner to guide the invalid, and 1 am induced to touch upon this topic, be cause I received quite wrong impressions of what I should want, from some who had lived there in sound health. Under this topic let me just add, that colored spectacles green or grey will be quite uselul to defend the eyes against the excessive whiteness of the streets at the west end of the island. 'Medical Advice. It will of course be interesting to the invalid to know, that he can have excellent medical advice. There are many physicians there, who have pass ed through the schools of Edinburgh and Copenhagen, and are well worthy of con fidence. I cannot foi bear mentioning one who is remarkable, though not for that only, as being the oldest physician in the West Indies. I refer to Dr. Stedman of West-End. He has practised in the isl and more than fifty years, and still pos sesses uncommon vigor and vivacity, both intellectual and physical. We were in debted to him for much good professional advice, and for enlivening many of our eve nings with his brilliant conversation, and curious anecdotes of the olden times, both of his native country, Scotland, and his adopted one, St. Croix. He was the pu pil of Cullen, and the fellow student at Edinburgh with Mcintosh, the late Dr. Mitchell, of your city, and many others, whose names nave since been well known. Society. The inhabitants are very hos pitable, and are disposed to be attentive to strangers. Since the island has become so much a place of resort, it is obvious that they cannot each be attentive to every body, and letters of introduction are more necessary to insure their acquaintance and attention, than formei ly. Proper in troductions will secure the kindest atten tions sometimes almost more than one, who has much delicacy on such points, feeling that he probably will never be able to repay, will be willing to receive. But this feeling is often greatly relieved by ihe very generous pleasure too apparent to be mistaken, with which they are rendered. It is proper to remark here, that his excellen cy the governor general is disposed to treat strangers with great courtesy, and that he is gratified by an early call. Strangers may be introduced to him at the govern ment house, by gentlemen of the island. Letters from Home. Intercourse with New-York direct, and by the way of St. Thomas, is very frequent. Letters mav be sent and received as often as once in ten days or a fortnight often more fre quently ; and the merchants of the island, and of Sl. Thomas, are verv obliffin? in receiving and forwarding letters and pack acres. x uenee, messrs. manors, mat tiie nr t- i". , above remarks contain answers to the most important inquiries which valetudin arians going to the West Indies would wish to make. I will add, however, that the language spoken is English; and that there is "at each end of the island an English church. I use my former signature for the last time, and hope not much longer to be Vale tl din arius. AGRICULTURAL, From the Maine Firmer. RAISING AMD FLOURING WHEAT. Mr. Holmes: I find your correspon dents are reviewing the wheat raising topic, and I am pleased to find them awake on the subject. 1 should be glad if I could make any observations which would be beneficia'l to the public as it respects the culture of this grain, possibly I can. In regard to grinding or flooring I have no doubt my remarks, though perhaps not new to all will be useful to every one, who will adopt the T ehU l r er or sward land for a crop, I find that it ought to 'have some manure turned in as well as a small top dressing to ensure a good crop, such as ashes or plaster. The slow growth of wheat on such land owing to the gradual rotting of 'the sod. prevents much danger from blight or blast The same may be said of the crop after peas. Pasture land will produce an ex cellent crop, if turned over with a top dressing of ashes, say five or six bushels to the acre, even if no manure is turned in, and perhaps may be the most sure method of raising wheat in this part of the coun try. I find by my own experience, strengthened by the observations of Dr. Bates, that on all sandy soils with gravel as a subsoil, or clay if it is five feet deep ; steeped or leached ashes and clay as a manure, will ensure the crop of wheat. Second, as to the flouring or grinding of wheat. When we have raised the wheat, we ought to be able to make the best of the article it is capable of, and I hope your readers will pardon me if I re late a few facts and give some reasons why this business should be better attended to, if we wish to compete with other wheat growing countries. It seems to be neces sary to keep the mill-stones apn.rt by the hardest corn, in order to get either fine flour or the greatest quantity. I once carried to the mill in Winthrop, one and a half bushels, and paid the miller, Mr. Stanley, for grinding it, instead of giving him the toll as usual. After the wheat had passed through the cleanser, I scattered in three quarters of corn, as evenly as I could, and weighed the flonr it made. It was allowed by all to be finer and lighter than that made from the same wheat without the corn. It yielded 40 1-3 lbs. to the bushel. Four bushels would have made 196 lbs. of flour and a fraction over, which would of course make a fraction over a barrel. Mr. Sanborn of Wales stood by. He had brought some very good wheat to mill, and he put in two quarts of corn to the bushel which he raised year before last. He afterwards told me that he obtained 54 lis. to the bushel. Try it brother Farmers, and my word for it, you will never grind, or rather flat out wheat, as you have done, and give the residue to the hogs, calling it wheat bran, when there is atleaslten pounds of flour in it. I am told that at the South, it is always done, and may we not exptct '.hat one fourth at least of corn is put in, and then it is re ally better than when none at all is put in. I had in my bushel and a half, nine pounds and three fourths of coarse or second sort, so that in fact I had more than fifty pounds of eatable flour. My wheat was very dry, if it had for a shoit time been placed over some steam, so as to moisten it a little, the hull would have been less cut by the mill, and the flour would have been better. This 1 am also told is sometimes prac tised at some flour mills. Will any far mer longer neglect to raise wheat and grind it in the best manner, and pay away all his money for flour and be in conse quence as poor as a church mouse? Or will you take care of yourselves. It re mains with you to say. Without econo my no one can expect to have much, but with it, and a little industry, every thing. If you neglect to raise your bread, or if you do raise a little, and" give one fifth to the hogs under the name of wheat bran, at the same time extol Southern flour and prefer it to your own, merely because it is ground better and finer, you must ex pect yourselves and the State to lag be hind the others in wealth and improve ments. Our mills I believe are good, and I have ever found the milleis accommo dating. Look to yourselves, brother Farmers! Elijah Wood. Winthrop, Aug. 1836. MISCELLANEOUS. NATIONAL PECl'LI AKITIES. " 1 was sitting by my English compan ion on a sledge in front of the hotel, en joying the sunshine, when the Diligence drove up, and six or eight young men a lighted. One of them, walking up and down the road, to get the cramp of a con fined seat out of his legs, addressed a re mark to us in English.

Texas and Red River are placed in the back ground, when presen ted in comparison with this region. It is really delightful to ride over the level country east and north of this, and view the splendid plantations now whitening with the opening crop. We have heard various estimates of the quantity of cotton which will be shipped down the Yazoo this season, and the lowest estimate made by the best judges exceed 65,000 bales, upward? of 30,000 of which go directly from this place without including the plan tations on the river near this. Five years from now the Yazoo will give employ ment to fifty steamboats and export 2,000 bales of cotton. About 1,000 bales of the new crop have been received at this place up to the present time. Yazoo Whig and Reg. Meteor. A brilliant meteor was seen at Greenfield, Mass. on Sunday eve ping, the 23d ult., between seven and eight o'clock. It crossed the horizon in a direction from north-west, and disappear ed in the south-west. It had the appear ance of a ball of fire nearly as large as the sun, and left a luminous train behind it. Two or three minutes after it disap peared, a loud explosion was heard, which shook the buildings in the village. About 1 i o'clock the same night there was an other similar appearance and explosion. A meteor whs also seen the same evening at Albany, which is represented to have appeared as large as the moon, and made a noise resembling distant thunder.
