afterall, it'a ouly ajoke.'" I rusbcd fonvard,

thc treasure in the bam.
Thc ncxt morning, I arosc at au early hour,
for nosound slccp had visitcd my pillow that
night. Aftcr breakfast, my mother tied up
the ealibles she had prepared for me, in a
nice white bag, and kissing my cheek, bade
me bc a good boy. I ran out thc front door,
and then stolc into tbe bam. There lay thc
melon. Uaslily did I sltivc to thrust it into
thc bag, and lothwasit to go,sosmalltbc bag,
so large thc melon. Succccding at last, I
slung thc bng upon my shouldcr and hastcn

but a heavier load was on my hcart. Tug-
ging to the placc of rendczvous, bcforc balf
there, in a little cross strcer, I sat down upon
a log, hot aud tveary.
"I cannot carry this melon," said I, opcn
ing tbe bag and lookiug in with a rcmorsful
ipirit. "I cannot carry this poor melon.'
Out camc thc melon; aud, tossingit over the
feucc, I scampcrcd off with all the specd I
was mastcr of.
Tbe day passed of wearilycnough to me.
Bill l'arsons cnllcd me acoward, when he
behcld no melon, and his bittcr taunts ran

What wonder, what rcsrcts, atlendcd tbe
"Tliat beatitilul melon stolen!" cxclaimcd
Eben. rcfusing to belicve itpossible.

"You will have another soon, Eben,' said
"But it will uot be like that, mother. I did
nursc it so carcfully."
Poor bbcn! 1 cannot descnbe the mis

As to Wool, wc would ch:erfully stakc
thc result of the Presidential Elcction on
thejudgment of the IFool-growers as to
which of the two Tarifls is preicrable
the present, or the substitute proposed by
Gcn. McKay and supported by the mass of
the Locofocos last winter. JPc sce no
use of repeating what we have statcd, we
do not wish to add any thing to it. Brief
ly, wc stand on these impregnable
1. That the present Tariff does aflord
cilicient Protection to all kinds of Amen
can Wool, selhnc for 30 a 32 ccnts a
pound, which it would not commandif
foreign TVboI costing Iess than nine cents
liere, duty paid were equal to or in any
manncr competcd with it :
2. That the proposition of thc Frec
Tradcrs to raise the duty on this coarse
Foreign IVbol to 15 or 20 per cent. (that
is, seven mills to one cent a pound) de-
ceptive and fraudulent, because at the
same time they proposed to rcduce the
duty on coarse Woolen Ulankcts Irom hl-
teen to ten per ct. thus ensUrintr the intro-
duction of coarse Woolens instead of
Wool, and deprivinfj the Farmer not
merely of any markct for such Wool, but
lor the provisions, J? uel, fcc. Sic. hc now
sclls to the manufacturers ol these laurics,
from whatever Wool.
That the inient of ihe present Tariff is
to shut out such Foreign Wool, (unless
imported at a high duty; as comes in
competition with any American Wool ;
and we bclieve this is the efect of it. But
if it shall appear at any time that this re

The Washington Globe has iust been dc-
tectcd in one of those tricks so illustiative or
Loco Focoism. Its prospectus, now circu
lating all over the Union, is filled with the
most intemperate denunciations or Whig
principles and Whig policy. But certain
passagcs are suppressed or inserttd according
to tbe meridian to which its appcal Tor party
support is addressed. Thus tbe copy circu
lating iu North Caroliuia contains the fol
lowing philippic agaipst the Whig TarifT:

circulating in Pennsylvania. In other re
spects the two copies are prccisely alike, but
whilc that for North Caroliuadcnounccs thc

this subterfuge is obvious enough. In North

Letter from James G. Birney.
New-York, Oct. 8, 1841.
To the Editor of the Tribune:
Your paper of this morning coutains a
statcmcnt which I wish to corrcct. It is,
that, on my passagc from Dctroit to BuQalo,
I "did not hesitate to atow uy prefertncc for
Jlr. Polk and the Loeo Foco mlicv gtner
all;,." 1 b
On the occasion referred to, I gavo no
opinion on tho general policy of thc Demo
cratic party; nordidlspeak of any prefer
cnco that I had, as bctwcen Mr. Clay and
Mr. Polk; butlspoke ofthcm both, as I
always have done, as utter objcctionablc.
In remarking on thcdangcr of Anncxation,
I cxpressed the opiniou that I now ropeat
that I bad but little fcar of it.shoulil Mr.I'olk

to the National IntcIIigencer has dcprived its

All tho perverse ingenuity or Mr. Birney and
bis supporters for tbe Prcsidcncy can no
more barin Mr. Clay on that subject.
As to Mr. Birney's nomiuation for tho

we arc not justified in our conviclion that
there is a well undcrstood coalilion bctween

Icads us first to ask what arc Mr. Polk's sen
This is casily ansncred. It is notoriou?,
that whcn Mr. Polk was uominatrd, it was on
accouutorhisdircct hostility lo thc Tarilf or
1842. 1 had supposcd that thcrc was not a
man in thc Union not a man who could rcad
a newspaper, or was posscsscd orordinary in
tclligeuce, who did not understaud it who
did uot know who was not morally ccrtain
tnat iur. roiK was putjortli as a stroung un-
compromising Auti-Tarifl man a warin
friend and advocalc of Frcc Trade! Aud
that he was put fbrth by his party on tbose
vcry grounds to run against Mr. Clay! The
thing was notdiscussed with us. All his ad-
hcrcuts iu Mnssachusctts, New Hampshirc
and Mainc avowcd that be was a strong Anti
TarifTmau, and dcclarcd that on that vcry
ground Ihey would go Tor him. But in coursc
oftinie his rriends found ihathisdoctrincwas
uot popular in some parls or the Union, and
thcy therefore rcsolvcd that hc should comc
to us not in bistruc, but in an assumcd garb.
And that hc, who was thc stcady, rcgular,
origiual cncmy to protection, should bcdrcss
cd aud undrcsscd, and undrcsscd and drcsscd
again, and exhibited in bis new garmcnls as a
protcctiouist. (Shouls oriaugbtcr, in which
thc ladies joincd.) I do not belicve tbat Mr.
Polk aftcr uudcrgoing such a changc I do
not think hc would posscss aftcr doiining his
new and lor him cxtranrdiiiary garmcnts I
think that he would not have that continnity
oridcas which pnilosopht-rs say coustitutcs
"pcrsonal identity." (Sbouts or Iaugbtcr.)
Aud indecd as far as I know anything orMr
Polk, I don't bclieve tbatbe'd conscnt to sub
scribcr to any such dcsradation I do not be-
licvelhat hc would Tor a momcnt lcnd himself
to the perpctration ofeucli a deccption! I bc
lieve hc'd scom it! And il hc wcrc hcrc to
day, and thc qucstion were to bc put to him
to bc sure hc'd Iook eolcr; and hc would
not like to make any answcr but ir hc was
put to it,to speak or not, undcr thc pcnalty
of forfeiting the good opiuion or all mcn, hc
would say directly aud boncslly, " I am op
posed to protection I camc into public lifc
opposed to it all my votes, spceclics, anu
public acts have bccn iu direct hostility to it
my scntimcnts have undcrgone no changc
up to this hour in regarn lo it anil l cxpcct
to icmatn an uncompromising cncmy lo i
till thc day I die." (Cheers aud lanhtcr.)
This is strong language but it is not stron
cer than Mr. Polk uscd in statinc his vir.ws
last year, in the rencral discussion and con-
troversy with Mr. Jones, in Teuncssee, wbcn
they wcrc rival candidates for thc office of
that state; she hau lollowed closely tlie lead
or South Carolina on this snbjcct. But the
scntiments or thc people had undergone a
changc; sevcral of the most cminent mcn in
the State thought that ibetnrifTopcratedben
eficially cvcn to Tcnnesce,and were satisfled
tbat it immcnsely bencfittcd the whole coun
try, and with truc patnotism abandoncd all
sectional prcjudices Tor tbe general wclfare.
Mr. Polk reinaiucd on the old attti-lariff
ground. He proposed to Mr. Jones that thcy
should wnte letters to the people cxpiaimnp:
thcir respcctive opinions, and fully dbcuss
the great qucstion in their approaching con
test; and it is notonous tnat mc contest was
strictlv larifT and anti-tanh"; and in which Mr.
Polk came off second best. (Lxughter aud

he was not much of a pro-slavcry man, nor
much of an anti-slavcry man, nor much or a

Compromisc Act to 20 per cent. on cvery

And bis friends bere say, "Polk and the Ta
