Being Lost?Rough Roads? Fording a Eiver by
Night, &c.
Lost '?Wh,, has not been lost? Probably not
one man of country growth in a hundred has es?
caped the experience: and of all the feeiings to
which unfortunate humanity is liable, few I ima?
gine arts le-s to be envied. The Sun has strayed
to the wrong side of the heavens?the river runs
up-stream. The fence is the wrong side of the
road?the road itself has capped head for tail?
the very tree, are wrong-all as if the man had
Slept awhile and waked up in the wrong world.
Manv a time in such case, among the sunny hills
of New-England, have I suspected that I myself
had been swapped away for some other urchin by
mistake, and been fain to prick myself with a pin
to test the question of identity. But in New
England, such mistakes soon had their end. The
road followed solved the mystery; or some field,
or house, or known token, brought the wanderer
to some, place and dispelled the hallucination.?
Not in the wild West; there the lost wanderer
runs into perils of which the uninitiated little
dream The traveler rides up to the settler with
??How far to the next settlement?" 'Twelve
miles.' ''Direct mad?" 'Yes.1 "No turning
off?" ' No?keep straight ahead.' Cheered by
the point and precision of the direction, he pushes
on. Tiie road is evident, arid nothing can be
plainer than thai the man who directed him w a
man of intelligence?one who knows what he is
about. In the midst;of the eulogy, thus pouring
forth on the heart of the squatter, the road forks;
and not a mile from the jdace of inquiry. Wrath
and perplexity lake a round of fisticuffs in his bo?
om, and then he concludes to go on: for. after
all, thev way come together again. Soon a field
suddenly meets birn.nnd the road grows gradually
dimmer as he courses along the fence, in the hope
of roming on to the old track again. He follows
the fence a mile or so, and then meets what must
be the road. The direction is right; it leaves
mm field for the prairie, and besides there is none
oth< r. With a good heart he puts forward, and
riot until he has traveled some three or four miles,
fat from man or his dwelling, does lie perceive
that his road is actually leaving him. Dimmer
and dimmer it grows. Here part of it runs
round a slough; nor does it all seem to come back
again. Then tt new track has been made to avoid
-omo impediment, and it threatens always to he -
now track?every now and then a part (if his road
runs "ill" across the prairie, till all at once th<
whole road has actually left him. Some few
tracks seem to keep on, but nothing like a road,
ft; the mean time night comes on, and happy i;
he if it be not a cold or stormy one; and though h<
puts forward with what speed he can muster, ii
what he judges to be the proper direction, yf
Night settles down, and finds him trackless am
guideless in the great ocean of land. Hills ris?
out of the plain in every direction; and grove;
cloaked in shadows almost reveal themselves til
obscurity has swallowed till the universe but tin
stars, and he alone lives t<> gaze at them. !
But where will he go ? Let any man start with j
out any object to guide him, in the doterniinatio |
to proceed in a straight line, and he will com j
around upon Iiis own track in a short time,
have made some experiments, and never knew th
man who could proceed in a direct line without .
guide, for the distance of six rods. Where, thoi
should a man on a prairie, in a cloudv nigh:
without road, wander? After a sufficient numbe :
of (gyrations, and sufficient fatigue, the travclr >
concludes to tie up to a bush, if he ran find one ?
and if he has a match, to kindle a fire of prairi '
.Truss, if nothing else offers, for the sake of com
puny?or, in want of both, to hold his horse h I
the bridle, and catch a little broken, cold, dew j
??loop, in the intervals of the wolves' howling, am j
wait the light fin- further wanderings; and at a'
sufficiently rational intervals to curse the stupidit
of tin* man who could so badly direct him. 1.

has never yet received iL-? share of attention,

whereas it should be subjected to rules, and taugh. |
hoys as regularly as catechisms, with diagrarm ?
Most people direct, a stranger as if they suppose, i

Being at Milwnkic the frost season, and havin;
boon nicely shaken and chururd on the way ou'
1 made special inquiry for a smoother passag?
back- On this subject I had the care to secur<
the opinions of' some dozen people that had bee:
out t>> the centre of Wolworth County, who, to a
man, represented that as a prime road, and oven
way worthy to be traveled. Cheered bv such as?
surances, I -ot forward. Mile after mile, as wc
? lodged stumps and stones with even' now and i
then a whirl in a hole, well nigh deep enough to
upset us, did 1 wonder when' the good road was,
bur. concluded it must be after emerging upon the I
prairie. Accordingly of the first man 1 met I asked
tho distance out. of the woods. "Eight miles."!
?vii- the consoling reply. While 1 was meditating
upon the interminable length of eight miles, the
-horses gave a snort and came to a dead stand.?
I here lava -lough, wide, black, and deep as a
little Acheron. On the opposite side there bris?
tled a row of slumps, of such remarkable ferocity
of appearance, a, to bid defiance apparently to
<-xit. there was-nn dodging?trees and hushes. I
and deeper mires ,m each sui,. [cf, no alternative.
After suitable coaxing, the team plunged in.?
Whether or no it found any bottom, I ncverascer
tained; but tun inclined to suppose it was passed, i

An?i swims, or sinks, or wades or creeps or riles."
At any rate, they came out as nicely plastered
with mud as you will see a swine on a summer's
day. Nor had I time to congratulate myself ?,, j
my escape, bet?r?- another presented, as like us a
bean to its brother. But the prairie was finally
passed; not so hurriedly the end of the bad road.
1 kept no 'count of the -loughs we passed; ot all
sizes; nor of the mites of marsh and stubborn
mud we dragged through; but this 1 will say, that
for superlative meanness, of all the roads I ever
passed, none can for a moment compete with tho
road from Milwakie to the centre of Woolworth;
always excepting the corduroy opening from De?
troit to xpsilunti ot former daw-. The evening
found us at Spring i'raiie; u little, rolling dry
spot of earth, of exquisite beauty?sprinkled all
-?ver w ith dwellings, and full of luxuriant grain ;
which, with the "grass m the greenness of Jane,
waving in the breath of evening, and gilded with
the long rays of the setting sun, presented . spot
that seemed indeed of another planet-a little
stray islet of a better world! 'Happy people,
d#se Spring pmirie folks,' thought I. Having
had much luxuriant experience in mud navigation,
niv first care was to address myself to a group of
men and inquire the road for the future. With a
lu-rubrious shake of the head one of them told me
:hat fi?r seven miles to come there was now and
hen a drv spot sticking; out of the marsh, hut that
i worse road there hardly could be. The rest
?himed in, and one told how he got sloughed, with
10 load ; and others of narrow escapes, till my mind
ivas fairly made up for the worst. As we passed
?Ii, and crossed now and then a wet spot of little

diised. and discovered that all these people were

?tie; while the others lived on a smooth prairie,

But I am to record an adventure that did not
row out of misdirection, the details of which if
jr?t interesting to readers, irere certainly so to the
larties concerned. Years agor.e, when Indians
.vere plenty, and white women were not, in these
?arts, my friend Ralph and I had been out in the
egions of Sugar River for a hunt. After wander
tig sufficiently, and shooting sufficiently, and <ee
ng merrv deer which we dkl not shoot at, we started
or home. Jt was late in October, and tin- (Lay.
hurt at. best, threatened to be -honor still for us.
['he clouds, which had been growing dark and de
ermined, liegan tu pour down rain in heavy, sleety'
'rops; and before we could reach Rock River,
vhich we had to cross, night had fairly set in.?
Vc gave ourselves no great uneasiness, however,
s we had left our canoe snugly tied by the bank.
.1 the morning. But oh reaching the spot, what
vas our consternation to perceive it gone ! W e
rawled through the bushes, up and down the
tream, and felt for it, for seeing wes well out of
he question, but ill vain. Gone it was, and some
?d-hide had got it, down whose throat we did not
brget to wish it. But wlmt was to be done??
.'mss we must?then: was 110 shelter near us, ex
ept the skies, and they seemed at this juncture
I ?articitlarly leaky and cullender-dike?and as to
i idling for a canoe it wus mere expense. There
vas a ford near, where teams had crossed in the
iimtner; but the water was rather high, and pos
ibly cold. It was our only resource, however, and
o it we took ?urselves. By this time the rain was
tulting its merriest. The wind blew a stiff tune,
uid us to seeing, the best that could be done at. it
vas to look on shadows, and rather dark ones too.
j I'he riv er was about forty rods wide, and ran as Rock
.liver always does, as though in a luirry. We. found
j he road, however, and began to shape our course.
I Vny one who has looked long and steadily for an
j 'bject, and just as he is about to discover it has a
' ihn come over his wye, can guess how long it took
I o see any object by wIhcIi to shape our course
! (.cross the river; tuid inasmuch as the ford was a
ittle crooked, some such guide seemed convenient.
I Vt last a whitish spot seemed to appear, which
j night be the road on the other side. We started
, ti, hut the fog- was thicker near the surface of the
1 water than on the bank, or I had been deceived ;
or I could no where discern any thing but the
larknesrt. The water too was getting surprisingly
leep, and nil at once wo were getting up to our
inns. " How deep did you call this ford ?*' said
italph. ' About three feet,' said I. " Then they
nust be India Rubber ones," said he. " We are
oo far up-stream," said my friend. ' Wo are loo
ow.' said I. " Certainly too low for this depth of
vater," said Ralph, ' But what can be done ??
To swim with a gun and bag of game is not so
asv. in so swift and cold n stream. Let us try it
ligher up,' said I. But to walk up-stream in four
did a half feet water with all Rock River crowd
tig you down stream, with no foot-hold but loose
'ravel stones, is easier thought than done. So we
timed back, and regained a shoaler spot; and
laving traveled up a piece tried it again. " We
ire too high up, I t-ll yon," said Ralph, as he
dunged again into water to his chin. In short,
we tried it up-stream and we tried it down
-tream; til! neither of us had any very clear con
?option of our whereabout*. Ralph declared the
river was running the wrong way. ? Lot us call a
?ouucil of war," said 1. " Present, captain and
j irst lieutenant,7' said my friend. Now fur once.
dear reader, imagine yourself ;? jj,^ rnids>t of a
j river of an uncertain depth, in tin Ortolie,- night :
! the wind howling and the rain pelting as though
the holes in the clouds were the size of hens'eggs,
with no very definite ideas of your lotus in quo.?
" Let us go back and take a new start."' said
Ralph. 'But which shore an* you going for V I
inqtiin'd. " The one we came from.'' said he.?
' Doubtful," said I- "I am certain," said he. Now
we stumbled ssver rough gravel, then plunged into
holes. .Now the river ran like a mill race, and
then held up as if for n fresh start, while Ralph
whistled and sung alternately, as he had nwrr or
less bn*ath to spare. At last we were among the
bushes, and in a few moments had struggled by
dint of crawling and pulling through the long1
grass, upon the bank, and with no little ado found.
the mad that crossed the ford. " Her* is at it
again/' said Ralph, as he dashed into the stream
once more, ' But 1 think we are on the right bank
already.' said 1. Nothing would however convince
him: and not until 1 absolutely refused to follow,
j would in- consent to give it up and take the road,
which soon brought us to our divor. Nor would
Ralph yield the point that night, that the cabiu
had either lavn moved to tiie. wrong side of the
river, or that the river itself had turned to running
up-stream. J. A. W.

Calvin's Person,.. Am;a.range.?A letter
pn*served in the Archa-ological collections ofGrenus;
gives us u graphic picture of Calvin's personal ap?
pearance :?" He resembles an old hermit of the <
Thebald, emaciated by vigils and fasting, his cheeks
colorless as those of a corpse, 'out Iris brilliant eves
glow with an unearthly tkt*. Hi-s figure j? slightly

but hi* step is steady and his tread firm."
Dr- Noah Wibswr.?It is sad to see that vete?
ran in leitet s, the venerable Dr. Webster, compelled,
on the wintrv verge of the autumn of life, to turn
literary constable, and endeavor, almost single
banded, to drivr? the multitudinous herd of poach?
ers from his ancient and rightful province in litera?
ture. And it is sad, too. that he who is truly and
great I v a benefactor to his race, must leave it for
posterity to adjust his reputation to hi- character,
and award to his name, when he no longer remain
to enjov it. that honor which is due to his merit,
and which is so covetously withheld from him while
living. Of the millions who have been indebted to
Noah Webster for the liest means of rudiments]
education in the English language, ever enjoyed by
human beings, scarcely a thousand, perhaps, have
had anv more consciousness of thar indebtedness,
than thev have of their indebtedness tc God fnr the
air they breathe; and scarcely ten. if. indeed, five
have dulv appreciated the merits of their benefac?
tor. Iti truth, few are competent to form a just es?
timate of the value of such labors as Dr. Webster?;
for few have anv conception of what these Jailor
have been, and what ha- been their effect in this
Country, and even in ihr- Mother Country. Bur
the truth i-. thnt no man has done better sendee for
the English Language than Noah Webster.
Dr. Johnson was, in hi* dav, a literary mammoth,
and perhaps had a richer fancy and more varied ac?
complishments as a literary man. than Dr. Webster,
but a? a philologist and lexicographer, he was less
erudite atid less accurate. And in our time-. Or
Webster stands, alone. There is nothing to com?
pare with him. Richardson has done for Home
Tooke what Dunlap has tor West tilled np the out?
lines of the master, and for the litr rarv antiquary
Richardson's Dictionary is a very valuable work,
but as an English Dictionary for the even- day use
of those who are" not indebted to letters, it is of
little value, and will soon bp found only on the
shelves of the curious and critical in literature,
while Dr. Webster's Dictionary will continue to he
come more and more the standard work, not only
throughout thi? Country, but wherever the English
Language is spoken.
But Dr. Webster has probably done less for the
English language in our country by his dictionary
than by his spelling-book. But for the all-prevail?
ing presence of this bonk throughout our wide ex?
tended country, nothing could have saved us from
as great a diversity of dialects as there is in Eng?
land. Wc have some few phrases peculiar to dif?
ferent sections of our country, yet as n general fact
the whole land has hut one tongue, one dialect.?
And this is principally owing to the fact that near?
ly everv one who has learned to read, has acquired
his rudiments from Webster's spelling-book, nr
some other upellihg-book compile*! from Webster's;
and only so far excellent as it was a compilation
from his. For it vt a truth not to be denied nor
concealed, that, of the numerous books of tins kind,
which, during the last quarter of u century, have
been introduced into our schools as improvements
on Webster's, if nil that thev owe to the labors of
Webster were taken from them, scarcely one ol
them woidd have merit enough left to render if
worthy of being preserved from the flames. Be?
sides, it is probably true that Dr. Webster is the
only man in our country who ever made a spelling
book with the paramount purpose of benefiting
the language and the people. Musi, if not all
others, who moke books of this kind, make them,
not from an honest and intelligent conviction thnt
the public, good demandsthem, but becausetliey hope
to make them the means of pecuniary emolument.
Actuated by a spirit, of tins kind, multitudes of lite?
rary loafers and bookmakers' bucks havti been em?
ployed in?manufacturing ''school books." very
greatly to the injury of the cause of education. J
do not mean to imply that Dr. Webster has labor?
ed for fifty years without any regard to it pecunia?
ry, recompense; but I mean to say that the para?
mount motive which has led him through half a
century of severe literary toil, has been of a far
higher, and nobler; and more philanthropic charac?
ter. And he may rest assured that though poach?
ers and pirates may infest the borders of his em?
pire and enrich themselves with the spoils which
lie can spare without impoverishmeMt, yet it will
hi; long pre the sceptre of his dominion will part
from him. [Hampshire Gazette.
Tracing a I'kdigrek.?A Shah ot Persia had
u superb war-horse brought to him for sale, and
called his officers round him in front of his palace;
to judge of the animal's value ; a gang of slaves,
with their task-masters, crossed the court at the
same time, and one of them, a ('reek, paused to
look at tho horse. " And what do you think of
the purchase?" said the Shah, rather contemptu?
ously. " The horse is a good one, Sire." replied
the Greek; "bin I will pawn my life?which for
a slave is not much?that he was suckled by nn
ass." Suckled by an ass! It was impossible!?
But the ravner of the steed being sent for, confirmed
the statement. The mare who foaled him had
died, and a she ass, who was jn milk, had been his
foster mother. " By the hump of the holy camel,"
exclaimed the Shah. " the Christian dog has brains:
give him half a loaf a day at the expense of the
public." The Greek's penetration disturbed the
mind of the descendant, of Ah' ; he thought inces?
santly of asses. Shortly oftervyards, among his
treasures, he discovered a cosily jasper. ?"' Inshal
Iah ! 1 will have this carved juto a spacious cup,''
said he, " from which I will quaff sherbet to the
honor of our prophet; and that Greek, he of the
ass, shall do the work.'' " Light of the Sun !"
said the Greek, his task being proposed to him.
" this stone, contains an animal." Allah Kerim !
This was too much,' Bot the stone was sawed in
two. and a lizard was found in the middje. " There
is but one God !" said the Shah. " By the beard
of the Prophet upon which be eternal oil of roses.
Give him a whole loaf a day, ut tin" public ex?
pense," said the Shah; Some time after this his
highness the Shah was seized with a doubt as to
his own legitimacy. It was & nice point for a king
to inquire;into; but yet he had misgiving- thru
Ali Mohammed had not at all points been Iiis pro?
The Greek was this tima privately sent for.
'* You," said the Shah, moodily, '?you. who
rule the stars, tell me, I commune! you. what was
my father?" " I have no control over the stars,"
replied the Greek. " or I should scarcely have re?
mained so long a prisoner: but as far as I can
judge from observation. 1 should take your High
ness's father to have been a baker." On this the
Shah pondered more than ever. At times ho deep?
ly blamed his mother. Once he thought of re?
signing the i i own At length he once more or?
dered the Greek to be brotjght before him. " Tell
me. 0 Christian, most accursed!" -aid the Shah.
?? sinec I am tin* son of a bakrr, (may the eternal
ovens be his portion!) tell me the particular mani?
pulator of flour to whom I owe my being."?
?? Your Highness's command." returned the Greek,
" passes my" capacity to obey, I have no newer
over Genii, but derive my knowledge, little rts it is.
from close observation and comparison of proba-!
bilities." " But how., indes? by magic ar'." asked
the kimr. ??could you know thar my horse had been
nursed by an ass .'" ?? It was because such foster?
ing ih my country, Sire, is not uncommon; and
that horses so nursed actptire frum imitation a pe?
culiar rnnde. of carrying their ears." ?? Bismil
lah! but how did yoi;discover,"returned the Shah.
?? thnt there was a lizard within ;hr jewel ?" " It
was, your Highness, that I have before, in my
travel-, seen such prodigies: and that a certain
opacity about tiw gentre of the stone in question,
made me suppose the fact in this narticuiar case.
'? But. whisker of the Prophet's cat.'-' exclaimed
the puzzled Prince. ?? what could lead von to sus?
pect that I am the -on <d" a baker.'" " Pardon
me.sire,but it was a circumstance m your HighnessV
own conduct.'' " In my own conduct, <la%*e ? Teil
it. or, son of a dog. this moment is your last.''?
'" When I first told your highness that tho horse
veu had bought had been nursed bv an ass, your
Highness commended rriy knowledge and ordered
half a loaf of bread to Ik* given io mi; " I
did. ' rejoined the Shah. ?' When a second rime; <
I discovered to your Highness that the globe of jas- j
per contained an animal .your Highness set my wis-!
dom above that of ytwr whole Court, and ordered I
that I should receive a whole loaf of bread." I j
did; but what of all this?" cried the impatient j
Shah. " On this, sire, I pondered ; and I said j
within myself, if The sous of Kings pay good ser?
vices with treasures, and with honors, with thanks
and with jewels, with high offices, and with sums
of gold. He whose farthest conception of large?
ness is giving a loal"of bread, can be no other than
the -on r>f a baker.*' Thi.- hint afforded the Shah
a good opportunity of proving his legitimacy, and.
o* course, succeeded.

Hi re he paused, and while )!?? was replenishing
his tumbler with his favorite brandy and water, a
person, who I afterward found was nn intruder,
like myself, asked Mr. Paine if ever he was in
Scotland ??The answer was yes. So have I boon,
continues the speaker; and the Scotch are the
greatest bigots with the Bible 1 ? ver ?ir i
their school book : their houses and their churches
are furnished with Bible-, and if they travel but a
few miles from home, their Bible is always their
companion; jet. continues the speaker, in no coun?

so comfortable and happy; their poor, are noi in
such abject poverty as I have seen mother coun?
tries:; by their bigoted system of going to Church
on Sundays, they savo the wage- which they cam
through the week, which in other countries that I
have visited, is generally spent by mechanics and
other young men in taverns and frolics on Sunday.-:
and of all the foreigners who land <>u our shores
none are so much sought after for sen-ants, and to
till place-where trust is reposed, as the Scotch:
you rarclv find them in taverns, the watch-house,
alms-house, bridewell, or State Prison. Now, -ays
he. if the Bible i- so bad a book, those who use it
must must he the worst nfpeopl-buttht reverse
is the case. This was a sort of argument Paine
was hot prepared to answer, and an historical fact
which could not !?? denied?so without saying a
word, he lifted u candle front the table, and walked
up stairs: his disciplcs.slipped out one by-one, and
left the speaker and myself to enjoy the scene.
