Kducation in this country, though general, is not
iso liberal as might be supposed. 1 aere are not many
of them who intend to pursue any of the learned pro
iessions that are educated in a /ianiter to fit litem
i >r high excellence in those professions. An iinper
iect acquaintance with classiral literature; n little
/.atin and lest (ireck are considered hy most parents
us all that may be necessary t? prepare youth for the
Ptudy, and qualify him for the practice of law, divin
ity or medicine. It is true that this deficiency is not
always a barrier to the attainment of distinction and
lame m these professions ; because genius will over
( come every impediment, and surmouut every difficul
ty ; hut when such slender attainments are consid
ered as sufficient, it ?ill follow that thousands will en
deavor to reach the rank they confer who might not
otherwise have dreamt of pursuing them, and who,
had they received a more finished and liberal educa
t; in, would probably have become eminent and use
ful. 1 must not be understood, htwever, as intending
to write any censure on the propensity prevalent
pin ing the people in this country to extend the bless.
rigs of education to their offspring. No ambition can
be more laudable or virtuous. It is perhaps the best
legacy a parent can beowath to his child, in the
language of one of no lit tie celebrity " it is a com
panion which no misfortune can depress, no crime
destroy, no enemy can alienate, no despotism enslave;
a' home a friend, abroad an introduction ; in solitude
ti solace, and in society an ornament. It chastens
v ee ; it guides virtue, it gives at once grace and go
vemm, mi to genius. Without it what is man? A
splendid slave, a reasoning savage." An education,
however, culculntod toconfer, those advantages and
blessings cannot be enjoyed by those whose circum
stances arc not easy or affluent, a " little learning,"
may be more dangerous than none at nil. The tinie
devoted to the attainment of general knowlcde would
be so much abstracted from and therefore prevent the
acquisition of a trade or of skill in any of the ordinary
occupations of life, and all cannot be scholars, or nf
.tQ lead a life of leisure. It is particularly under a
republic, that no man can anticipate the future desti
ny of his child, an*! therefore, it may be iucumbent
upon him to exert every effort to give him a liberal
education ; bat if all were thus educated, the useful
arts would be neglected, or if resorted to, would be
pursued with reluctance and mortification. Not one
in a hundred oi those whs havebocn liberally instruct
ed, at great expense perhaps, and with many priva
tions on the part of their parents, will be able to suc
ceed in the profession which he has chosen. He
knows nothing else, is too proud to work, and either
seeks lor office, or becom-9 a drone ia society. This
is perhaps, more observable in the middle and south
ern states, where the degraded condition of slaves
renders labor discreditable and where it seems to be
thought ungenteel, it not dishonorable to work. Hav
ing nothing to do, and still depending on their pa
rents, if they are living, when they should he striving
to maintain themselves by their own industry, they
acquire habit? of idleness and dissipation, and become
a burden to sici ty. In the northern and eastern
States, however, they are brought up differently, and
are more capable, as they are more willing to rcssrt to
any honest vocation by which they can maintain
themselves and their families whoso labor they make
useful to them. You must not infer from what I have
written, thnt I am an enemy to instruction or that I
believe that ignorance is beneficial to any communi
ty. On the contrary, I am decidedly of opinion that
no free govern-n mt can long exist, where the people
arc not enlightened.

t The American Ill-public ia an experiment in the
? science of government. No system precisely anala
gousto It :.a* ever existed, and its effect upon soci
ety is th reforo worthy of investigation. One of its
most obvious consequences is an nmbit on in the pa
rent eithvr to elevate himself or cause come part of
liis family to bo elevated to stations o: political emi
nence. This of rsursc leads to the evil of which I
have spoken, in educating to? many for the learned
professions, nod others disqualifying them or produ
cing a dislike for the mechanical or useful arts. When
urwnccesiful in their professions they either apply for
public employment, or, if they have talent and capa
city, become the conductors of politiral or literary
journals, or r< sort to the business of instruction for a
livelihood. Tliosa journals and schools Hve become
very numerous throughout the U. S. and yet, though
it may appear paradoxical, there is a gr,-at wnnt of
correct information among the people of this country,
espcc.ally on political subjects in which they take a
very deep interest. This it app:ars to ine may be ac
coutred for, from the existence of that v.olent party
feeling which never fails to take deep root among the
citizens of a tr e country, and which here tends to
confine newspaper readers to the support and exclu
sive perusal ot the journals dovoted to their own party.
Such is often iho intensity and operation of this feel
ing that scarcely any thing, except what is absolutely
official in its character will be credited, and but few
are so unprejudiced as to take or even read a paper
which supports the uien and measures of n different
party. The periodical press has therefore, become
rather an injury than a benefit, by exciting a feeling
of animosity and hatredarnong brethren of the same
family and citizens of the same country. 1 huve been
astonished in my intercourse with the people of the
U. S. to discover the rancour and hostility which an
imate those who belong to the different political par
* ti?s, that nsw exist in this country, and which I fear

(Jalveston Bay, Nov. 29th, 1837. \
To Jambs Cordon Bennett, K*o.?Sir: In the
New Km of Feb. 25th, which we received hy the In
vincible, I s uva letter written from New Orleans by
one of the volunteers who sailed in the Brutus from
New York
Tie statements that the writer of that letter makes
as far at regards the vessel, commander and officers,
are in every particular as false as the author of them
is in every principle of honesty or truth.
In the first place their going out ns passengers.
It was an express understanding between 'aptain
Hurd and Captain Hitchcock that they wers to act as
marines, which not one of them was required to do ex
cept assisting the armearer in cleaning the arms, arid
three or four days sufficed for that. The writer speaks
of our cruiHing along the W. India islands and ot last
landing them on one of the most desdno of the
mouths of the .Mississippi. I should flunk he scare* ?
ly knows wh re the W. India islands nr.", by his ma
king such an assertion, without he styles the Florida
Tcvs such. The Balixe contains some 300 inhabitants
and hundreds of vessels are continually pursing and
repassing, which does not appear as though it was
wnfreq ient?d or desolate, although the low boats. I
acknowledge, seldom go there except in the summer
} time.
1* is true they were landed, but it was at their own
Tcepest, an ? it was optional with thsrn whether to re
ni',tJ or not, an I I assure you it was a gn at relief to
ua all on board thai they were landed, for with some
three exceptions, a greater peek of scoundrels never
existed, and ihose three now remain on hoard.
As to the character of (.'apt. Hurd, it is I bchvo, a
bove the reach of such a inan as the writer of thnt ar
ticle must be. Capt. Hurd is not only the command
er of the Brutus now at this tune, as well as then, hut
ran remain and have a higher station than the one he
now h ilds should he feel disposed to accept it.
He speaks of the mouldy stores of the Brutus being
substituted for theirs. The stores of the Brutus had
been on board but a short time before those for the
Volunteers canic, and were as good in every respect
ns theirs. Flour, lea, and coffee, not a partisle of
which they had, were gratuitously furnished by the
vessel; also a n an to rook their provis.ons, although it
was a condit t" at if we furnished a cook, Hitch
cock wsuld ? ?h a seaman in his plsre, which con
dition wss - implied with, and Capt. Hard used
daily to bcii ' i his own table provisions for rhe
pick volimu ? even the gallant Hitchcuck wss in
volume ii. no. 337. NEW YORK, TUESDAY, MAY 2,1837. *
vitcd by G'apt. Hurd iHto bis cabin and two of the vol
unteers were invited by t!i? Ward Room officers to
share their fare. He also speaks of "begging at the
cannon's mouth such articl.s as lie confc.-s -s were
needed." It appears rather a singular expression, beg
ging at the cannon's mouth, but I suppose the writer
knows no better. We board. H some vessels and from
one obtained some paint, from another a topmast,
(having carried away ours a few days before) all of
which were promptly paid for by the agent in New
Orleans, and not a gun was fired except in exercising
or firing at a target, which was frequently done.?
'I here was no occasion to fire guns to bring vessels
to, for every one we saw we could easily overhaul.
As to Commodore Hawkins appointing another
commander to tin Brutus, that is a most infamous lie.
He had no authority or orders for any thing of the
kind, nor any disposition to do so even if lie had.
In every net of Copt. Hurd's, that of going to New
i ork, <Xu\ lie has been justified by his government, to
whom only he is amenable. I know not, nor do I
care, how far they may have been humbugged by
('apt. Hitchcock, but it is not reasonable to suppose
Capt. Ilurd would allow a parcel of grog shop bullies
to overturn the discipline ol his vessel.
By publishing this letter and making what remarks
you may think proper, you will much oblige
Respectfully, your obd't serv't.
1st Lieut. Schr. Brutus.
Ithica, April 23, 1837.
We clodhoppers of the country, although we regret
the misfortunes of our fellow citizt us on the sea
board, arc often amused by the reasons assigned as
the cause of the present distress, by your knowing
ones of the editorial corps, and others. In England it
is ascribed to the long credits given to our merchants,
in New Orleans to rash .'.peculation?in Alabama, to
the imprudence of the planters in purchasing too ma
ny negroes?and by some ?f your learned editors, to
the removal of the deposites and the specie circular.
We cool and considerate people *f the country be
lieve it is to he attributed to various causes?to a re
dundancy and contraction of the circulating medium
?to excessive importation?to rash, nay, insane,
speculations in real estate, and in our staple commo
dities?to the increase of luxury, and to the unexam
pled extravagance in dress and in the style of living,
now common throughout the country. When n beau
tiful lady cannot be "r.gged" with less than a couple
of thousand dollars suitably for a promenade in
Broadway?and a merchant of yesterday must emu
late a prince in his style of living, and for that pur
pose expend fifteen or tw -nty thousand dollars annu
ally?and when with a capital of twenty thousand
dollars he must do a business to the amount of n mil
lion, numerous failures must occur, and much distress
he experienced. |
Luxury, sir, is hurrying the nation to tne brink of
ruin, and unless we are arrested in our thoughtless,
foolish and pernicious career, general corruption and
depravation or morals must be the inevitable conse
quence. If, therefore, the present distress shall prove
the means of awakening the people from their delu
sion, and shall restore them to their senses, and
cause them to live and act as becomes republicans, it
will prove the greatest of blessings instead of an evil.
The reform, to he general, must commence in our
cities, and it must begin with your ladies. I know
many of them?they nre 11 ?t only beautiful hut have
excellent hearts, and low of country sufficiently ar
dent to make any reasonable sacrifice on the altar of
patriot.sm. Will they not then consent to take the
bad in the glorious work?
If they will, they will receive the ad 111 ration and
obtain the lasting gratitudw of their countrymen, and
prevent the speedy downfall of one of the most splen
did republics the wor d h?s produced. They will?I
know they will, if they can only be brought to reflect
seriously on the dreadful consequences of our present
mad career?and let them remember their " beauty
when unadorned is adorned the inovt," and throw
aside the trappings of the harem, and the decorations
of slaves, as beneath the dignity and notice of the
daughters of fret-men. Agsicola.

Woman's h<>art when pure and unsophisticated?
when unpractised m the mazy windings of man's
heart, is unsuspecting and confiding, it yields itself
unhesitatingly in all its fervor and purity to the do
minion of that usurping ami engrossing passion?love,

that it is yielding itself a victim to man's passion and
perfidy. Strength of mind, strength of principle,
arc no safeguards against the progressive and beguil

And eh, what sorrow on ?*nrth can equal 111 intensity
that which bursts on the heart of woman, when she
finds herself li -trayed, an out? ast from her destroyers
heart, and the object of his foul suspicion and con
tempt. Alas! s?ch has too often been the fate of the
wisest, tho fairest and the host. In the course of my
travels m a beautiful part of Virginia, I became ac
quainted with a lovely, intellectual and virtuous fe
male whose sedate and quiet mariners, were occasion
ed by her mental sufferings, for the fear of her lov.r*
inconstancy and desertion hnd taken fast possession
of her soul, and almost undermined the seat of rea
son. I loved her nnd was interested in her welfare,
for Jaha was an object worthy of the pureat must
devoted love of the human heart. One evening, ever
sacred to remembrance, while taking my customary,
though solitary rnrnhle, and indulging in one of my
absorbing reveries, I discovered, Julia and her lover
Edmund (* n, seated side by sida, engaged in ap
parently distressing conversation, for the tears, the
bitter tears of agony, were c oursing *n her agon
ized and pallid fat e. I stood near, o .?<gn nn perceived,
and heard her say in broken accents, which bespoke
a broke n heart. Edmund, oh, how cruel to deceive
me thus, and will you, ran you lie so base, as to abas
don me now, and leave me alone to endure the ago
nizing consciousness of in y own shame, ami the scoffs,
and the sneers of the iinpitymg world. Oh, is there a
spark of humanity unextinguished in your bos mi,
have you 110 pity for the wretched being, wh un you
have loved, betray, d nnrl condemned to irretrievable
rum and misery. He turned from her with a satirical
and triumphant smile. She continued, ungrateful,
unfeeling rnnn, to you I have resigned psaee, honor,
and happiness, hear me. I have mode a resolution
and no power on .*arth can make me sever from it.
Too long have I endured these agonies, these tor
tures,?too long your contempt and Heglrcb I
should never have survived your love. No Edmund

small stilletto, and waved it triumphantly in the air.
Kesolation imparted a ste-n vivanty to her unload
ing eye, as she gazed upon the instrument which was
to acrid her suffering sp-rii, unbidden and unpardoned
mm that viewless, boundless eternity, "whence no tra
veller ever returns."
We simultaneously rushed forward, but alas! we
were too late, the fatal steel had entered her heart, and
as we caught h< r, she gazed in Edmund's fare'ami
murmured in broken nnd almost inaudahlc accents,
' Edmund dearest, a last kiss." A melancholy proof
?hat the predominent passion was strong even in
death. As we withdrew the dagger from her heart,
whither it had been burned to the hilt, the life-blood
flowed in cnrasin streams, and her sweet spirit fled,
whence? alas none ran tell. Kdmnnd fled, for he

On throwing tab tea ovkhboahp in Ho ton iiar
non.?John VVyetb, one of the individuals concerned
in the transaction, gives the following account ot it.
I labored, as a journeyman blacksmith with West
ern & Grid ley, blacksmiths by trade, and Baptists by
profession? Western, at the time, was neutral, but
afterwards became a Tory. Our numbers were be
tween 28 and 30. Of my associates, ? only remem
ber the names of Frolhingham, Mead, Martin, and
(?rant. We were met together one evening, talking
over the tyranny of th British government, sutdi as
the heavy duties, shutting up the port of Boston, the
murdering of Mr. Gray's family, sending people to
England for trial, and sundiy other acts ot oppres
I 1 f
Our indignation was increased by having; heard of
the arrival of tea-ships at the time. We agreed, that
if the tea vvas landed, the people could not stand the
temptation, and would certainly buy it. V\o came to
a sadden determination, to make sure work of it, by
throwing it all overboard. We lirst talked ol firing
the ships, but we feared, the fire would communicate
to the town. We then proposed .sinking them, but
wcdropped this project, through f ar that we should
alarm the town, before wo could get through with it
We had observed, that very few persons remained on
board the ships, and we finally concluded that we
could take possession of them, and discharge the tea
into the harbor, without danger or opposition.
The greatest object on to our plan was, that it would
take such u length of time to carry it through and
render us more liable to detection. Weagreed one
and all, that we would go on. at the risk of our lives.
We proceeded to contrive the mode of accomplishing
our business. One of the ships laid at Hancock s
wharf, and the others a few paces out in the stream,
with their warps made fast to the same wharf. A bri
gade of British soldiers was encamped on the com
mon, less than a mile from the wharf. We agreed
in order as much as we nught, to wear ragged clothes,
and disfigure ourselves as much as possible.
We concluded to meet at an old building at the head
of the wharf and to fall in one after another, as it by
accident, so as not to excite suspicion. Alter having
pledged our honor, that we would not reveal our se
cret, we separated.
At the appointed time, we all met according to a
grecment. We were dressed to resemble Indians, as
much as possib'e. We had smeared our faces with
grease, and soot or lamp-black. We should not have
known each other except by our voices, and we sure
lv resembled devils from the bottomless pit, rather
than men. We placed one sentry at the head of the
wharf, one in the middle, and one *n the brow of each
ship, as we took possession. We then proceeded
rapidly to business. We boarded the ship which was
moored by the wharf, nnd the leader ot our company
in a stern and resolute manor ordered the captain and
crew to open the hatchw ays, and hand us the hoisting
tackle and repes.
r* The captain asked us what we intended to do 7 'I he
leader told him that w were going tonnUud the ships
of the tea, and ordered him and the crew below, as
suring him, that if they obeyed, no harm wasintend
ed them. They instantly obeyed, without murmurs
or threats. Some of our number jumped into the
hold, and passed the chests to the tackle. As they
were hoisted on deck, others knocked them open with
axes, and others raised them to the railing, and dis
charging their contents overboard. All that were not
needed for discharging the tea from this ship, went
on board the others, and wrapt tlieni into the wharf,
where the same ceremonies were repeated, as at the
first ship.
Wo stirred briskly in the business, from the mo
ment we left our dressing room. We were merry in
an under lone, at the idea of making so largr a cup of
tea for the fn-lies, but were as still as the ease would
admit. No more wards were used, than what w re
absolutely necessary.
Our moat intimate acquaintances among the spec
tators, had not the least knowledge pf ua. 1 never
labored harder in my life ; and w* were so expedi
tious, that tbough it was late in the evening, when
w e began, we had discharged the whole three cargoes
before morning dawn.
While we were unloading, the people collected in
great nunVbors about the wharf, t- sec what was go
ing on. They crowded about us, so as to be much in
our way. Wo paid no attention to them, nor did they
say any thing to us. They evidently wished us suc
cess; for none of them cave any information against
us. Our sentries, were not armed, and could not stop
any who insisted on passing. If wehad been able, it
would not have been good policy ; for, in that case
they might have complained of us to the civil author
ities. 1 believe our object in stationing the sentries,
was to communicate information, in case we were i
likely to be detected by the civil or military power.
They wcrepatrieularly chnrged to give us net ice, in
case uny known Tory came down to the wharf. But
?ur main depends nee was on tho general good will
of the people.
It muy be supposed thai there was much tnlk about
this business tne next morning. The twrivs, civil,
military, and spies, made a great fuss, and sailed the
business divers hard names. Proclamations and re
wards, to procure detection were all to no purpose.?
We pretended to be as *e?lous, to find out the perpe
trators, as the rest. We often talked with the tones
about it. We were nil so close and loyal, that the
whole affair remained in Egyptian darkness. We
used sometimes afterwards to meet and talk the affair
over, never failing to end by drinking?"The hearty

"Oh, Lord ! it's all gone!"

"send that fellow out of the room!" Let. within the

Andy was expelled the.tallea m murcr in disgrace, and
