All appeals to the prince were in vain. He stood too much in nccd rsuppoTters to his usurped throne, to vcn lurc a rupture with the possessor of tho Al man manors.

The return of Richard spread universal joy among,his pcople. The flight of prince Jphn was follojTCd by that ofhis chicf fa- ! voriles, who juslly dreaded the wrath oTthe monarch to whom thcy had provcd traitors. Clara'a unworthy cousin, hearing at the same time of the return of his monarch and of the carl, did not wait for the appearance of tho latter, but fook ship immediatcry for Franco.

COMjMUNICATION. For lhe Peopla's Freaa. No. II. Mn Editok, In my last. I endenvored by a few remarks, to diroct the nttcntion of the village to its true condition, wilh rcgard to the facilitics it possesscs, for cducating tho mass of its youihful populalion. Pre suming that I havc the attcnlion, let us pro ceed furthwith to the facts." These, by universal consent, speak louder than words or argumenls Thc village, it is supposed, cmbraces within its limits niorc than 2000 inhabitants. Tliis populalion is divided into what is tcrm ed two " sclnol districts." Eachof these dislricts is nrovided with a school buildins. ne it te nnr? Kn tvltfit nrn I cnlinla in cach, a portion of the yrar. It appears from the rccords, that cach district continued school during about eighi monlhs of last year. This it would seem is about un average, in rcspect to time for several past ycars. The expense of district schools, to both districts for cach year, is probably about 8400. Tho number of scholar; in both districts, which draw public money, is about G00. During aboul four monlhs in winter, tlicrc aro pro vided somclimes, two malc and ihree female teachers afTording cach teacher, if all that diaw public money attcnted, moro than 120 scliol.irs. In summer, during the same lenglh of time, threo femalo teachers giv ing to ench moro than 200 scholars. In winter when ilic grcatest numbor of leach. ers are cmploycd, one district afiords about ninely and thc other about cighly. making in all about 170 scholars. In summer, about JoTty in one district and sixly ia lhe other, making about 100 scholars. Iho buildings erecied for thc accommadalion of lhe two districts might possibly be improved so as to nccommodatc 200, about one third of the whole number. At prcscnt they will not prnperly acrommodale ihat number.

Instcad of cach gencralion becora ing wiser, according to tho "old adago." I think the adnge will soon be rettrsed ; and not only reverted, but also at a rapid rale, and its influcnce will bc felt too in all ofyour dcarcst iuterests Instcad of the ncat quiel village, notcd for its intejlfgence, refinement and religion, the deliglitfufhome of thc studcnt and thc man of scionce and leltcri, wc shall see a place charactcrizcd for slrcet brawls and riots, the haunt of loaf er3, blucklcgs, and a borde of illilerate drones, from which industry, Literature and Sciencc, will fleo as from thc wilds of a how ling wildcrness. And it requires no eye of a prophct to forcsee this rcsult, provided that ihings are allowed to go on at the same rato and in thc same dircction, as they have dono for a few vcars past. Let lhis bo the caso and Ichabod will soon bc wrilten upon lhe whole. A populalion, hostile to the I it erary Institutions ol the place, will be in pos session of the business and ictallh of lhe village ; nnn these Institutions in that evcnt, must sooner or later close their doors forev er. But says onc this "in fact" is not a fair view of the picture. We havo select schools, an Academy and Scminary. True; but as thcy can n ol butslighlly affcct the mass. how long do you think thoy could exist, wherc ignorance reigns tnumphant, and no desire cxists in the minds ofthe inhabitants to have it olherwise 1 Lct us look at the matlcr moro closely and view the picture from an other position. We have the Seminary, Academy and sometimes four select schools. These do not average, of scholars from lhe iwo districts above specifird, more than twcnty each. These schools would contain then in all 125 scholars. Suppose then, that all the schools abovo metilioncd were in succeisful operation at tho same time (which is seldom the caso and cerlainly not oftener than onco ayear) and you will have in a'l lhe schools about 290 scholars, some less ihan oae halfof lhe whole that draw public money. This must be acceedod to be the best view of the picture. Now I ask what must be tho appearance ofthe picture in its most common and espitially in its most uufavoTable aspect. Can we mako it appcar in any oiher light, than that there is a large mass of youthful population growing up in your village, that do not atlend school at all ; and are thus far growing up barba. rians 1 And that there is still a larger class which atlend but little I And that only a few belonging to the wealthiest families havo even decent advantages J The advan tages' are only decent for the most wealthy portion ofcommunity and nothing at all, for lhe poorer class, because they havo not the mcans of attcnding any except the district jchools, aud the potreet class are dmost compelled, however worlhy or virtuous, lo see thetr families grow up in ignorance. Notwithstanding this slale of things, the people of the village and vicinity seem to be intoxicated with the idea, that because thcy had an Academy, Seminary and College tho people as a matter of course would become educated. They have been accustomed to consider, that their advantages were ofa su. pcrior order, and that they lived in an cdu cated atmosphero, and must of ncccsity in- imio us properltes. let it is ioo irue to ad mit of a denial, that the advantages to the common pcople oflhe village have been meagre indced. Till quite rceently ihere has not been an opportunity for either Gen tlemen or Ladies ofyour village to wiiness any expcriments illustrating the scienccs, or to atlend lectures on any branch of learn. ing, of any value, unless they were tn some ay conncctcd with the Collcge- Notwith standing this, money has becn paid out thou sands of dollars for cducation, and yct lhe people of tho plaoe as a body aro nono tho qetler for it.

Af ter a general acquaintance had been cslab lished among the cabin passengers, lo past away the time more agrccably, it was pro- posed to have a gamo of cards, in which one oflhe number proposod lo invite Mr. Clay lojoin. When lhe invitation wasgiven, he enquired what game was proposed. The rcply was " Brag." The sudden compres- sion ot his lips, and the change trom easy politeness to lhe dignified deportment of one emitled lo givc advice, cvinced at once a determination not lo engnge in tho game. " Excuse me, gcntleman," said ho, " I have not played a game of any kind nf hazard for tho last twelro years ; and I lake occasion to warn you all to nvoid a practice destruc tivo ofa good oame, and drawing aflcr it cril consequcnces of great magnitude.

It breathes a sptnt of modest difhdcncc which is characteristic of its accomplishcd and cxcellent author, whose elevation is one among the instances (alas ! too few) which show that merit, even though veiled under the guise of unobtrusive modesty, will sometimes command admiration, and that impudence is not an invariable rcqui site to success.

I ngain cxprcsscd my (ipiriinn, in reply to a letter vhich I received trom a fellow-citizen of Philadelphia, rLquesting mo to slate the principles of thc Whig prtr ty. A statemcnt of them, as underlond by mc, was accordingly made, nnd it is now conspicuously publishcd nt tho head ofmn. ny newspapers. Thc lnst exprcssion if my opinion, is conlnined in a Jellcr whirb I rceently addresscd to Nashville, nnd of which I now transmit you n copy. If you had scen thcso vnriou.4 c.tprossions of tho opinions uhich I hold on the subjccl ofyour letter, I presume you would not havc ileem cd nccessnry to nddr&is mc. The sum and subslance of which I con ccivc to bo tho true policy of the limltil States, in rcspect to a Tariff, may bu bricf ly slated. In conformity with Ihc princi plc announccd in tbe compromiae nct. I think, that whatevcr rcvcnuo is nccessnry to nn ccononiicnl and honcstadiriiniatraliim of the General Governmcnt ought to bo cfc prived from dutics, iuipnscd on Forcign im ports. And I behcvo thal.in I'stabliuhing u Turiffof thaje dutics, such n d scriminalion ought to be made, as will inc;dcnlnlly af ford rcasonablc protecliun to our OHtiuiial Inlerfcsts.
