A Parody,
On Lines supposed to be ivritlen by Alex. Selkirk.
I am monarch of nought I survey,
My wrongs there are none to dispute,
My master conveys me away
His whims or caprices to suit.
0 slavery, where ure the charms
That 'patriarchs' have seen in thy face?
1 dwell in the midst of alarms,
And serve in a horrible place.
I am out of humanity's rearh,
And must finish my life with a groan:
Never hear the sweet music of speech
That tells me my body's my own.
Society, friendship, and love.
Divinely bestowed upon some,
Are blessings I never can prove,
If slavery's my portion to come.
Religion! what treasures untold
Reside in that heavenly word!
More precious than silver or gold,
Or all that this earth can afford.
But I am excluded the light
That leads to this heavenly grace;
The Bible is clos'd to my sight,
Its beauties I never can trace.
Y.e winds,, that have made me your sport,
Convey to this sorrowful land
Some cordial, endearing report,
Of freedom from tyranny's hand.
My friends, do they not often send
A wish or n thought after me?
0, tell me I yet have a friend,
A friend I am anxious to see.
How fleet is a glance of the mind !
Compared with the speed of its flight,
The tempest itself lags behind,
And the swift-winged arrows of light.
When I think of Victoria's domain,
In a moment I seem. Jo be there,
But the fear of being taken again
Soon hurries me back to despair.
The wood-fowl has gone to her nest,
The beast has laid down in his lair;
To me there's no season of rest,
Though I to my quarter repair.
If mercy, 0 Lord, is in store
For those who in slavery pine,
Grant that when life's troubles are o'er,
I may be accepted as thine.

B. has lived out of his family, and though perhaps
not originally disposed to do injustice to his wife,
he has failed to cherish and make her the partner
of his counsels. Her trials have not secured bis
vmpathy, and have therefore, oppressed her with
their undivided power. He has, moreover, ex
pected too much from her, and in his disapoint
nient upbraided her imagined neglect, and wound
ed if not broken her spirit.
A. has always been careful to provide tor tne
wants of his family. This he has regarded as his
duty. Having engaged to cherish and support
his wife, lie is ever nssiduous to relieve ner ironi
embarrassment. In his zeal to get rich, he does
not, like too many, forget the wants in detail of his
family. He goes out from his fireside as the cen
tre of the world to him, and returns to it be lore
he can rest. To defend, rear, educate, and render
his family hannv. is the first earthly duty recog
nized bv him in his diarv of " things not to be

docs not permit the familiar terms on wnicn tney
live to superseds the ceremonies of an exact po

personal respect. His attentions are uniformly
rendered. The same regard and preference which
separated him from others, to ask her hand, ap
propriates him to her through lite. ne is nevei
left to suffer the pang of suspicion by any wanton
act nracticed on her sensibilities. If anxiety set-
ties on her brow, he, too, is anxious until it is re
moved. He has no malignity of heart which will
allow him to sport with those sensibilities, or lace
rate them, lie inspires her confidence by his own
generous and unwavering confidence extended to
her. and bv avoiding whatever can give her pain.
In family government, whether in the discipline of
servants or cnnuren, sne receives ins uunii.ii sup
port. If in his opinion, she has erred in this de
partment of dutv, be does not upbraid her before
her family, and thereby weaken her authority, but
advises her in private, that the evil may be pre
vented rather than aggravated. He is ever ready
to give a liberal construction to her conduct, and
thereby prepare her to extend a generous and con
fiding interpretation to his.
If we could look into the heart of a young girl
when she first begins to love, we should find the
nearest resemblance to what Poetry has described
as the state of our parents when in Paradise which
this lite ever presents. All is then coioreu witn
an atmosphere ot beauty and light; or, it a passing
cloud sails across tho azure sky, reflecting a tran
sitory shadow on the scene below, it is but to be
swept away by the next balmy gale, which leaves
the picture more lovely for this momentary inter-
minion oi its stillness anu repose, uuc mat which
constitutes the essential oliann of a first attach
ment, is its perfect disinterestedness. She who
entertains this sentiment, in its profoundest char
acter, lives no longer for herself. In all her aspi
rations, her hopes, her energies in all her noble
daring, her confidence, her enthusiasm, her forti
tude, her own interest is absorbed by the interests
of another. For herself, and in her own charac
ter alone, she is, at the same time, retiring, meek
and humble content to be neglected by the whole
world despised, forgotten or contemned so that
to one being only, she may be all in all. And is
this love to be slightly spoken of, or harshly dealt
with? Oh, no! but it has many a rough plast to
encounter vet. and an insidious enemy to cope
with, before it can be stamped with the seal of
faithfulness; and, until then, who can distinguish
the ideal from the true! Mrs. Eltii.
Gen. Washington's Farm.
The farm of Gen. Washington, at Mount Ver
non, contained 10,000 acres of land in one body
equal to about 15 square miles. It was divided
into farms of convenient size, at the distance of 2,
3, 4 and 5 miles from his "mansion house. These
farms he visited every day in pleasant weather, &,
was constantly engaged in making experiments for
the improvement of agriculture. Some idea of the
extent of bis farming operations may be formed
from the following tacts: In 1 787, he had obU a
cres in grass sowed GOO bushels of oats 700 acres
with wheat, and as much more in corn, barley, po
tatoes, beans, peas, &e., and 150 with turnips.
His stock consisted of 140 horses, 112 cows, 235
working oxen, heifers and steers, aud 500 sheep.
He constantly employed 250 hands, and kept 24
plows going (luring the whole year, when the
earth and the state of the weather would permit.
In 1786, he slaughtered 150 hogs for the use of his
family and provisions for his negroes, for whose
comfort he had great regard.
" What is morally wrong can never he political
ly right," is a noble sentiment, full of force and
meaning, and worthy of the statesman who utter
ed it. It is a plain declaration of common sense,
and carries conviction to the " feeblest indiv idual's
feeblest conscience."

An old man stood by the window on a new-year's
night, and gazed upward, with a look of pensive
despair, at the immoveable ever glowing heavens,
and upon the still, pure, white earth, upon which
no one was so friendless and so sleepless as him
self. For his grave lay hard by him; it was cov
ered only with the snow of age, and not with the
Bishop Holies and the N. Y. Herald.
Extract from Bishop Hughes to the Mayor of N.
York Lily.
'It has been a matter of speculation among ma
ny in this city to solve the motive for the constant
and unvarying malignity of Mr. Bennett against
Bishop Hughes. Sonic have supposed he was
kept in bribe for the purpose others have ascn

I be in slavish subjection to avarice in that man's
! breast. But of all whose opinion has reached me
, upon the subject, there is not one who believes it
to be gratuitous. 1 express no opinion on the sub
ject myself. I shall enter into no abuse or this un
fortunate man; but as those who are inclined to
believe that he is actuated bv revenge, have told

" I love to see one of these huge creatures, with
sinews of brass and muscles of iron, strut forth
from his smoky stable, and saluting the long train
of cars with a dozen sonorous pufl.t from his iron
nostrils, fall gently back into his harness. I here
he stands, champing and foaming upon the iron
track, bis great heart a furnace of glowing coals;
his lymphatic blood is boiling in his veins; the
strength of a thousand horses is nerving his sin
ewshe pants to be gone. He would 'snake' St.
Peter's aoross the desert of Sahara, if he could be
fairly bitched to it, but there is a little sober-eyed,
tobacco-chewing man in the saddle, who h.ilds him
in with one finger, and can take away his breath
in a moment, should he grow restive and vicious.
I am always deeply interested in this man, for be
grimmed as he may be with coal diluted in oil und
steam, I regard him as the geniusof the whole ma
chinery, as the physical mind of that huge steam-horse."

ADVICE TO PARENTS. The manner in
which commands and prohibitions are given is of
the utmost importance. The following principles
should be carefully observed. Lot there bo tin low
commands and laws as possible; but what has
once been proscribed ought to be irrevocable.
If altered circumstances should require the abro
gation of anv rule that has been given, it should

he as formally abrogated as it was enjoined, no
rule should be permitted to become an obsolete
statute, for which nobody has any lurther respect.
Hence it will be necessary to reflect maturely be-
bie any rule of conduct is prescribed; and no or
der should be given, to enforce which the will or
the ability is wanting. By neglecting these sever
al principles, great and extensive mischief is done
by many who undertake the business of education.
Rules for tho conduct of children should be giv
en in as few words aud as much distinctness as
possible; and no flattery, or any other mixed mo
tives which could derogate from the rules, should
be employed.
Rheumatic Liniment :
This may be used in all cases of lameness, coughs,
colds, erysipelas, throat distemper, burns, flesh wounds,
and in all cased where ihcie ia iiifluuiuiioii unending. It
is also a specific remedy for dysentery, and should be ta
ken in all cases of pain. Most cases of toothache may be
cured by holding in the mouth enough to run around the
teeth; half a lea spoonful is a dose in common cases; this
may be repeated once ir. fifieen minutes till it gives relief
in obstinate cases. It serves to warm up the system, and
also lo remove all morbid heat. All pulmonary cases
arise from colds, and may bf flung off in this way. To

Jamaica. The moral improvement recently
brought about in this island is truly cheering to
the philanthropist. In the different congregations
formed by the Scotch missionaries, there are now
2,400 communicants and 1,600 scholars. A due
regard to the marriage relation is observed, where
a few years since concubinage was almost universal.
The Husband.
A good husband ! how honored and how honor
able the term! xet how rare! There ure very
few, it is to be feared, who come up to the gospel
rule in all the offices of lovei fidelity, and peison-
nl attentions, which the responsibilities oi this re
lation involve..
Instructive lessons are furnished in the opposite
histories of two families, which share my deep
sympathies bv a very tender relation. A has a
wife irritable, proud, and naturally violent. Yet
he lives in domestic harmony, and there dwells
happiness. True, her natural temper may be said
to be under the restraints of religious principle.
But the considerate husband brings that principle

mother of my children. She was mild and gentle
she wa3 meek and charitable. She was loved ami
respected by friend and foe. My bitterest enemies
would have spared me, if they could not reach me
without hurting the lamb that slept in my bosom.
The only attack that was ever made on Mrs. O'
Counell came from your side of tho water, and
from your city, in a paper called the JNew ioik

the paper. It reached ine just after Mrs. O'Con
nell's death. OI course the poisoned arrow miss-
d the gentle heart for which it was intended, but
it reached and rested in mine! Mr. Bennett was
not married when he wrote this attack on the a-
miable wife and mother; but those who are hus
bands and fathers can best judge whether Mr. O'
Connell's reception of him at the corn exchange
was merited or not. Whether O'Connell's heart is
the only heart that has been wounded by the poi
soned arrow' aimed at the domestic peace of man
kind, from the same quarter, if is unnecessary tor
me to say. But, at all events, I think this will
most fully satisfy Bennett that I, at least, had
nothing to do with the kind of reception he met
him with in Dublin. What the motive, then, of
hostility towards me is, I am still, ot course, at a
loss to comprenenil; but in truth it has given me
very little uneasiness. In the hypothesis that he
has been bribed to abuse me, I presume that a
counter-bribo would at once double his profits
diminish his labor and secure his silence, but I
cannot afford it, and oven if I could, it should nut
be given..'
Passing the Butter. "Willy," said a doting
parent at tho breakfast table, to an abridged edi

class at the High School; " Willy, my dear, will
