Now we are not op- posed to neutness of tho person, for ho who is careless in dross is very npt to bo carclcss in othcr "rospccts ; but it is to the cxccss of dandy ism that wo object. We object.lo tho lavish'ex penditure of so much moncy on tho porsons of our young mon.

THE WEST. The following is nn oxtract ofa letter of a trav cllcr in tho west to the New Fork Express, dntcd Milwaukie, Wisconsin Territory, July 1837. This town, liko Chicago, and many othcr western towns, is fast rising in importanco. It is now but thrco years sinco it wns purchnsed from tho Indians, and thc land for fifty milos back of it was ohly surveyed last ycnr, and nono of it has been ofTored for sale by tho govcrnmont cx ccpt about tvvo miles squaro on which tho town is now built ; but it is "heing" squatted upon daily by thoso who had rather livo on lands belonging to tho government, tlian livc on thoso that thoy uro obliged to pay for.

Tlio making and sclling clnims has been a grcnt busincss during the last ycar in this soction of tho conntryjgA young man from tho Eastern Statcs, wiUPjuIt tnoney enough to g:t horo, would, on Insarnval, go to work for a mouth, nnd cnrn twcnty or thiriy dollars ; by tho timo his mouth was out, ho would' havo lcnrnt tho art of mnkiugn claiin, (squating on tho pub lic lands;) hp would go into tho woods, and with nn axo cut down a fow trces, and girdlo a few more, and throw togcthcr a fow logs in the form ofa country cow-pcn, and como back to town and oflbr hiselnini for stile say for ono or two hundrcd dollars which amotini ho would not unfrcquently obtnin. llo would then havo sufiicientcniiital to hiro somo one to make othcr clainis for him, whilc Jin hinisolf would takc board at ono of tho prineipal hotels and pass for a gentleman speculator, constnntly making claims through his ngent, nnd ngain sclling them for what ho could get. In this way somo havo kcpt up this now modo of living. But tho great re- vulsion which hns justshaken our wholo country to itstoundntion, has broughtup theso mushrootn speoulators all standing, as thoro isno longerany purchasera of claims, and not a boat that luaves the port, but what takes them off iu largo num bers.

Titlcs thcro,. conic from land. -Hcncc, agriculturo is tho work of scicncc and of art, aud as much knowledge and art aro demandcd to ctiltivate, and Iny out tho park, to adorn it with trees nnd with fountains, as to fill the gallery, or tho studio, or tho uicho of thc pnlin'p.J Ilow happens it thcn, thut in our parl of our country it is not so in tho south that ngricul turo is nvoided as much as it can wcll bc that tbo son flies off from tho fields to tho countcr, tho daughtcr to tho city or the factory all pant ing to cxchango tho frce, glorious nir of heaven, for tho dusty, noisy, crowdcd thoroughfaro, say of Wall-street, Pearl-st.or tho Bowcry ?

There is a beliof in our country it oxists no wbcro elsc that agriculturo is a v.ilgnr oecnpa tion, demanding no tasto, no genius, and nothiug but tho turning of tho sod, and cho lcvelling of tho trces. Ilow falsc is this ! W hy, tho Vatican in its way, is not moro boautiful with tho choicc works of oncicnt aud modern art in it a Belvi dere Apollo here, nnd a Itaphnel fresco there than an English pnrk in its way whero a land scapo is workcd out as a picturo has been a trco slinpcd to fit this viow, and hedge designed to aid that now pcrhaps a fountaiti or a watcrfall, anon a herd of dcer it may bo a lull crcatcd by industry, or a little rivcr, with the gods and god desscs presiding over, fitted to run in tho lino that hcnuty is demanding and nll harmonizing with Nature, ns tasto and gonius and scienco huvo aided in adorning it. Even the cottage of tho laboring Englishtnan with hi frontdoorso ni-ut, me roses, aud ivy, nnd woodbino creepingj pver and adorning it, nnd thc well trimmed hedgo I. ua irour, is a jewei upon tlio tuco ot tlio eartn, and tastc has made it so, for naturo has dono but littlo for her fathor-land. We know not why it is, but so it is, thero is in tho Northern Statcs a most unconq'.icrablo avcr sion to agriculture, and tho conseque'nco is, with New England in particular, that a furtuinK peo- plo nro fed from nhroad, by tbo agriculturo of oiucr atates, or ot torcign nations. Thc multi tndo seem more to lovc tho throiig the city: thc tinkling of money in tho shop of tho broker, or tho rustlo of silk nnd calico in tho shon of tho dealer, than tho notes of tho swect songstcr of ino woocts, tlio rich beauty n the trees, or tlio inviting verduro of spring and summcr. Ono reason is, that wo huvo no farmcrs, such as the farmers of England, of Holland, or of Lombardy, who cmbollish nature, and mako their homcs more delightful thnn tho lofiicsl palaces of tbo town.

If they cry out for Tex as, wo shall cry out for Canada; if they are rc solved upon a war with Mexico, wc must havo a war with GnnAT Britain! JjCI us see how theso mattcrs will operntc.

Such n wnr mny bc very a grccablo to them; but wo know that our North ern cnmmcrco will be plunderod and ruincd by privatcers of nll nations, under the Mexican flag; and wo know furthcr, that thc north, without a pnrticlo of intcrcst in tlio quarrel, or advantage to bo oxpcctcd from it, will bo callcd upon to foot almost tho cntiro bill ofexpenses. Of theso ex penscs no trifling Bharo will fall upon New Eng land, which has always borno tho htirdcn, though it hns not always sbarod tho glory of thc fight. Now it is no moro than rcasonablo thnt wc should have somo sort ofoflsct for all thcso nd vnntagcs. A war with ftlexico might bc sporl to Southcrn friends, but bc death to us. Now n war with Great Britnin for thc nnncxntion of Canadn, would afford us oxnctly tho ncccssary compcnsation, no doubt such n war would bo very trouhlcsomc and oxpensive; but its prinei pal cvils would not light upon tho north. Brit ish nrmics havo scldotn shown much disposition to land upon the iron bound const of Now Eng land; nor havo thoy ovor bccn able to pcuetrato for many miles into our densoly populatcd ter ritory. They cbnfine thcmsclvcs for tho most part, to invasionsof tho Southcrn States, nnd to the cnpturc, plunder and dcstruction of Soiuh orn citics.

A terriblo calumity this would bo, but h!vvould light wholly on thc south. Mcanwhile jtho north, cspecially tlio manufacturing Statcs, would find consolntion for tho cxpenscs nnd ch Inmilics of tho wnr, in tho monopoly of mnnu litoturing supply which it would confer upon them; and howover much tho south might suf fer during the continuatinn of thc cdntcst, it would tcrminnte at least, in tho oxpulsion of the invaders, and tho nnuexntion of Canadn; thcreby opening a most wido und valuablc fiold for the cxtension of our Northern cornmerco, and the exclusivo introductiou of Northern mnnufacturcs. Tho pecuniary intcrcst of tho Northern Statcs, in tho anncxntion of Canada is obvious, nor nre thc political advautagcstobccxpected from such a union lcss worthy of considerntiou.
