T‘u»t in God.
One beautiful evening in summer a
carriage drove up to a village inn. A
stranger stepped out and directed the
landlord to ieed his horse. The last rats
of the setting sun were visible onthe fleecy
cl mils, and . n the vane ot an antiquated
church which stood onthe opposite side
o', the wuy. The stranger looked about
him -tor a few moments, and then di
rected (vs steps to the church, that he
might meditate while the landlord was
ful filing his directions.
He entered the gale which opened in
fo the graveyard, and walking around he
viewed the grassy beds beneath which the
sons of other years lay silently resting
from w ant, and toil, and pain. While he
was reading the various insciiptions on
th" tomb-stones, his attention was drawn
to u corner of the chureh-yard by the
snhaofa little child. He went immedi
ately to the spot, where two ragged chi 1
dieu sal weeping upon a new ly made
grave. A piece ot hard bread w as be
tween them, 'i he sir mger being sensible
to ihc sorrows ol others, sat down upon
the grave and inquired into the cause ot
their distress. The littlj bov, whose
name wa- Henry, began to tell bun that
his sister Mary was naughty, ru.1 would
not eat the piece of bread he had begged
for her. She interupted her brother
here, an i told the man that she had eaten
some l>r -ad yesterday, hut her brother
bad eaten none since the day belorc, and
she wanted him to rut this.
The boy thru proceeded to tell the
stranger, that about a year ago his father
li ft the village and went to sen, and in a
•term he was drowned. "And poor mo

we nave come to her grave to see if wi

The stranger li-tcn d to the tale of
strrow until Ids eyes wnefilled with tears
and. 1 e »di moved with c in passion for
the wam.e ers. He exclaim d as he ros
from the grave. "Come v. ith me. my chil

A Thklat.—A co’respondent, who
signs himself “Old Hickory,” writes to
that eminent Whig paper, the Boston
Courier, that he must have Mr. Buchan
an nominated at C iiicinnati. and that
nine-tenths of the Northern, Middle and
Western States, with one-: aIf the South
ern States, demand the nomination.” —
We do not know the basis of this calcu
lation, but w e do know, that even before
the publication of the Slidell letter, Mr.
B. had no popularity worth mentioning,
either at the North or South: and what
was very little before, h is become still
less since that unfortunate publication
There has never been anything in Bu

siasm ; he has always been properly and
generally estimated as a trimming, cold
blooded. calculating self-seeker. We can
verv well undcrst.nd why such a man
w uld be acceptable to the class of poli
ticians who write to the Courier ; his
course upon the Nebraska question has
resembled theirs ; i.k^ them, lie has be
come a recent convert to Douglas ortho

Democrat. They may rest assured that
he will not be nominated ; and if they
must form an alliance with pseudo Demo

Virginia or Texan slaveholder.
As for the threat of -Old Hickory.’’
that “if Buchanan i> not the choice of
the delegates, the people will meet in
convention, and do their own work, and.
at least, send him to the House for
choice,’* we can only regard it as one of
those supremely ridiculous remarks which
people make without thought, and never
think of again Nobody would take so
much, trouble f r Mr. Buchan m ; and in
the House what chanc - of a “choice*
would he have? [Pos'on Atlas.
The Strength of Slavery.
‘One part of Mr. Baker’s speech at the
recent American State Council is worthy
of especial consideration. He said :
The administrations of Polk and Pierce
have built up the slave-power. It was
the Irish vote of New York which elec
ted Polk : it was the foreign vote bought
up in the country that put Pierce in the
chair. As an a avery n an 1 declare
the param »unt question to he American
ism. By cutting short foreign influence
we strike a blow at the great tool of the
slave power, the Democratic party.
As to the paramount question, we can
not place freedom second to anything,
but we think M-. Baker idiuws too that
Americanism should be united with it.—
Those who attempt to weigh the relative
value of the two, with a view of entirely
disregarding one of them, arc in our opin
ion short-sighted and suicidal. The two
vila re united, and an efficient opposi
tion to one involv m a hostility to the
other. [_Lotrcl citizen.

Report of the Investigating Committee
The Committee sppornted by the meet
ing of the citizens of Ellsworth to inves
tigate into the crigin of the late fires in
our village, ami if possible to find out,
, and bring to punishment the incendiaries,
ask leave to report :
i hat they have taken pain; to acquaint
themselves with the facts and circum
stances connected w th those fires, and
are satisfied that the steam mill of Gen
ii S. Jones was burnt down from the
carelessness of sonic hoys, -who had made
use of the mill the day before, and several
previous Subbaths, a kind of a play
house or place of recreation. But not
so in relation to the burning of the Cath
olic Chapel, and the tenantlcss dwelling
house. These fires your committee be
lieve, were the work of an Incendiary.
What causes led to these malicious out
rages. and what motives instigated these
' accursed deeds, it is very difficult to de
t umine, but your committee are of opin
ion that some deluded inebriate rankling
under uUl grudges, or burning bom the
lash of recent difficulties, and fired with
1 the intoxicating draft, set fire to the
; ( atholic ( Impel, and that the sam • or
,ume other equally deluded and depraved
wretch, determined to bnrn np the village
by setting lire to a dwelling house in the
j heart of it.
This reckless destruction of property,
I and total disregard of all the sacred ob
; ligations of society, and the duties which
| should bind man to his fellow man. with
lull t hr* dire consequences which naturally
i flow from such acts, is greatly to be de
! plorcd. tind your committee are confident
1 in the assertion that it is deplored by the
inhabitants of Kllsworth. Ola lly inde d
tvoulu they have prevented these di o -
I ieal deeds, and very gladly toa would
■ tlicv now expose the fiendish wretches to
that severe punishment which their blac k
!crimes richly deserve. It is mortilying
I in the extreme that we have such bad
! men amongst us: and deeply to be re.
gritted that they cannot be found out at
once, and punished. Yet come it will,
and the day is not far distant, when ‘he
guilty ones, if not proved to be such in
a court of law, will at least be well
understood by the community, and
punished by their neglect, scorn and in
dignation. And your committee would
respectfully recommend to the good
people of Kllsworth, to turn their faces
like a flint against all disorderly aril un
1 iwful conduct, and acts of violence : and
to treat those who are engaged in them
as enemies of our town and society; ol
our Country and the Christian religion.
Much has been said and written against
the people of Ellsworth on account of
their lawlessness, riotous, and tumultu
ous condect, and the inhabitants of the
town have been indiscriminately, and
severely censured abroad for the lawless
acts of a few persons, who had for th ■
most part, been educated in the schools
of vice in other places. The innocent
have thereby been made to suffer for the
acts-of the guilty, and our own towns
p-ople condemned for the had conduct
of those who but yesterday came amongst
us. It is not to be denied, nor w ill your
committee attempt to disguise the fact,
that in common with all extensive lum
bering places, Ellsworth has some citizens
of intemperate, lawless, riotous, and ins
tructive characters ; who when under the
influence of liquors, are ready to do al
most any thing that is had, wholly re
gardless of the consequences. But by
far the greatest number of this class of;
persons, whose acts have so much injured
the character of Kllsworth, properly be
long to other places, and h id been taught
their lessons of vice, not in this, but other
towns. This was imphatically the case
in f V n ti • • »•> unr r\f 1 vl irVrn 111 n'vooro r*1*

the four winds of heaven, hketbe 1 icusts
of Egypt, into thi-* devoted pla;c. They
came here temporarily fur employment.
They tilled our mills, our ship yards, and
every department of labor, and every
gang of loafers by day, and every noisy,
and disturbing assembly by night.
These intemperate, and vicious char
acters were not under the restraints which
onntroll men at home, but were ready to
engage in any acts of violence and out
rage which might be recommended by
wicked, and designing men.
The p-oplo of Ellsworth have good
reason to rejoice that most of this horde
has left, and retururd to their appropriate
Your committee have done what they
could consistently, to detect the persons
who set these tires, but have not been
able to obtain any evidence which would
fairly implicate any person or persons, as
guilty of the offence ; but they hope that
the liberal reward which has been offered
by the town of Ellsworth for the detec
tion of the gnilty, will be tho means of
ultimately bringing them to the bar of
In conclusion your Com. would express
tho^^bep and earnest convictions that
heflMm-e sufficient notice has not been
taken of the outrages and violations of
law which has occurred in our village—
that we do not as citizens sufficiently

order and
not con*
dcmn and frown upon the rowdyism,
recklessness and malicious mischief so
frequently witnessed among us.
It is from overlooking these small of
fences that iv* have acquired our unen
viable notoriety. These hive been the
seed from whence have originated, the
reckless rows, the midnight attacks on
persona and property, and the liiccndi
arie's torch, and all combined have made
the name of Ellsworth abroad, a hyeword
and a reproach.
We would then respectfully but
earnestly recommend to our fellow citi
zens, and particularly to mill owners, and
property holders generally to regard the
moral characters of their men. and also
for masters and merchants to sec to it
that their apprentices and clerks are < o>,
or do not become abandoned and de
praved ; and if so. when their reform is
hopeless, to discharge them.
Let us then awake to our duties, as
~ood citizens, brfo'e more serious evils
and outrages disgrace our town and be
fore some dire and awful scene, which
mar be already impending over our de
voted heads, miv -tattle ami terrify, and
too late csitse us to lament our inaction

Let us now adopt those measures (or

The sunset beam is cast !
So sweet the memory lett behind.
When loved ones breathe their last
And lo J above the dews of night
The vesper star appears1
So faith light* up the niQurner* heart. E

Night falls, but soon the morning light
