A WIKK WANTED.
Ye fair ones attend, I'.e on offer to make you?
In Hynien'a suit bonds I am anxious to livo.
For bt tier, lor worse, a companion I'll take you,
Provided you'll till the deseription I give.
I neither expect nor can hope for perfection,
p >r that o'-ver yet was a bachelor's lot.
But chMtiuj! n wife, I'd make a selection
YVhici. :mny in my situation would not.
I'd have, let me sec-I'd not have a beauty,
For neautitul women are apt to he vain ;
Yet, with a small thare, 1 would think it a duty,
To take her, be thankful, and never complain.
Her form must be good, without art to constrain it,
And rather above than btlow middle size.
A something it puzzles my brain to explain it,
Like eloquent language must flow from her eye*.
She mmt be well bred, or I cannot rcspect her,
Qood natured and modest, but not very coy ;
Her mind well Infotrn'd?'tis the principal nectar
That sweetens the cup of hymeneal joy.
Her home she must love and domestic employment,
Have practical knowledge of household affairs,
And make it a part of her highest enjoyment
To soften my troubles and lighten my cares.
Her age I would have it at least to bo twenty,
But not to exceed twenty five at the most;
And the girls of that age being every where plenty,
I hope to get one of that numerous host.
Not fortune I ask?I have no predilections
For glitter or show, or the pomp of high life;
1 wish to be bound by the cares of affliction:
And now 1 have drawn you the sketch of a wifa.

FEMALE RESOLUTION.
No ! I will nevrr see him more,
Since thu9 he likes toroain.
And when liis cab stops at the door,
John, say?I'm not at home !
He smiled last night when Julia smiled,
(They must ha?e met belore;)
If thut< by her he is beguiled,
I'll never see htm more!
I'll sing no more the songs he loved.
Nor play the waltzes o'er;
Nor wear the colors he approved,
I'll never please him more!
I'll conquer soon love's foolish flame,
As thousands have before,
Look strange whene'er I hear his natns,
And ne'er pronounce it more !
The plait of hnir I must resign,
That next my heart I wore;
He, too, must yield that trass of mine
He stole when truth he swore!
The miniature I used to trace,
And fell romantic o'er,
I'll tear from its morocco caso,
And?never kiss it more!
This ring-his gilt?1 must return
fit makes my finger sore;)
Then there's his letters?those I'll burn,
And trample on the floor!
His sonnet, that my album graced,
(My tears thus blot it o'er.)
The leaves together thus I'll paste,
And ne'er behold it more !
I'll waltz and flirt with Eusign G 1
(Thou?h voted olt a bore!)
In short, I'll show my heart i6 free,
And 6igh for him no more!
If we should mest, his eye shall shrink,
My scornful glance before;
Gods that's his knock ! here, John ! I think
I'll see him juit?once more !

The President ol the Senate laid belore the body a com
munication from the PostrnaMer General in relation to tlu
contract for carrvicg the mails from Vera Cruz to Sun Fr<iu

' Several petitions were presented, when the Senate re
sumed the consideration of the resolution heretofore sub
mitted by Mr. Clayton, calling upou the President of the U.
States for copies of certain papers relating to the Clayton
and Bulwer treaty.
Mr. Mason replied to the remarks of Mr. Clayton, contro
verting the declaration of (tie Nst named gentleman, that
the Balize is in Mexico, in the Siate ol Yucatan, and insist
Ing that the British settlements are in Central America. He
further said, towards thu conclusion of his remarks, that
British aggressions on this continent have gone far enough.
Mr. Clayton replied, saying thai Honduras itself does not
claim the Balize; aud lurther defended his course in making
the Clayton Bulwer treaty.
Without concluding, he gave way fur a motion to go into

foreign . 'olicy of the Government and the new administra
tion?Senator AJ a nan's speech on the Centra! Americar.
(,{usstion
Tne discussion of the foreign policy of this Government,
and ?specially in ielation to rtie British interference in Cen
tral American aiiaiie, was tei'twetl in the Senate to-day, by
Mr. Mason. The position which lie holds in the body, u?
Chairman of the Committee of Foreign Affairs, gives i<> hi*
views, at this time, the utmost importance. It will1? as
sumed, that whstever he cays, will expreas the views of the
new administration.
The responsibilities of power tend generally to a cautious
policy, but it cannot be doubted tlvit the present administra
tion have assumed and will rnait.iuiti a much higher tone in
regard to foreign aflairs than has !?? c?i heietolore done. They
are particuliirly pledged to redeem the country, without de
lay. from the aliegtd dishonor resulting trom the timorous
ness of the late administration.
The speech o. Mr Mason to-day was chiefly confined to a
reply to Mr. Clayton, upon the single point heretofore made
by Mr. Mason, tliat 'he Bulize is within the jurisdiction 01
Guatemala. If so, B(iti.?t> Honduras is in Central America,
over which Great Britain has by her treaty abandoned any
jurisdiction. Btstdes, the extensions of her pretension Irotn
that of a transient and limited to a permanent jurisdiction,
is of recent da if; am! is an aggression upon the rights ol
Centra! America, aud inconsistent with the Monroe doctrine
and our future peace and safety.
Tho possession of the Bay Islands !s also another act of
open aggression, and we haveju9t received advice of a fresh
aggreBUion in the fame quarter. Mr. Mason closed his
speech with a solemn declaration that England had gone as
far as she could bo allowed to go in her aggressions upon
Central America, and ill it this continent, and the whole
continent, must be tnude k?e from British aggression. He
alluded to and accepted the alternative of war in preference
to any policy that would jeopardize national safety aud na
tional honor.
Thus we are drawing nearer to an issue, deprecated by
?>orae, but desired >>y many, betweeu young America and old
England.

VVEDXESIUY, MORSISC. MARCH I ti. 18.1.1.
THE NEW MO l'Oll.
In the excursion of iho Virginia Senate to the caloric ship.
Capt. Ericcson cxpltinod minutely, and at great length, the
mechanical peculiarities of the new motor?und then pre
sented the following statements:
??Oncol the great advantages of this invention, and, in
point of humanity, the greatest, is, that there, can be no r.r
plosion ur.der any circumstances. By its adoption we will
near ol no mote Ueart-rendiiig accidents, which now so f.e
qucntly occur. [Long continued applause.] And, in a com
mercial point of view, its advantages cannot be sufiicient y
estimated. This ship under your feet will carry coal enough
to circumnavigate the globe. Five hundred and lilty tons
will be suflkicnt for this purpose. 1 ou ?;un go to Uilna
and back w:r,out taking In coals there ! 'k ou can fio from
the United Slates to Australia, and thence to England with
out coaling in Australia! [Applause.J This vessel con
Mimed tour tons and a quarter only in twenty-lour hours du
her late trip. This, gentlemen, is not theory itprac
tice I Applause.] Anthracite is the be.t fuel for this en
vine because ?'u oisly rt quire a slow, radiating heal: nodi
firndict that when this new motive power b.iall have
been introduced, England will come hither for her coal. Brit
-h vessels will coal on this side, instead of on the other side
..f the Atlantic. [Renewed applause, and long continued.]
Our mouni.iinsol anthracite coal are inexhaustible. The
whole world r.iay coine here for their fu*l. Under our pre
Kent steam system, we cannot carry coal enough to cross
the Pacific without intermediate coal stations.
Fast steaintrs cannot exist on their own earnings, so
great ii the expense of the present system. Not only have ,
they to pay Lr the coal, but also for handling it; and alto- j
gether nearly sixty men are employed in one of these large !
"team vessels in connection with the machinery. In a ves- !
sel upon this principle not more than twelve rricn certainly !
would be requisite. [Applause.] A single fireman on duty I
hero at a lime sufiices, whereas in the ocean s'eamer a heavy j
gang of men are necessary. I view this machine as of great j
importance, in connection with the great internal improve- |
ments of your Slate, which you urc now engaged in carry- !
ing out. You have only to complete your railway commu- J
nidations, in connection with the West, and continue the
same to the entrance ol Chesapeake Bay to Norfolk, where j
you have un excellent harbor, to get a vent for your great j
agricultural produce, aod send it to the countries on the I
other side of the Atlantic. _ I say, complete your internal j
communications, and Virginia, with her immense mineral j
and agricultural resources, will necome the great, if not the i
greatest, State of the Union. [Excessive applause, and long I
continued.]
Steam line*, if constructed at once, would notpav, where- |
as caloric :<hips would yield immediate profits, although the I
trade is nor so great as it will be. I must again call upon '
you to look at this new motive power in connection with i
your internal improvements, and you will find that it has an
important bearing upon them." [Applause]
Captain Ericcson now said that he would be very happy i
to reply to any questions in relation to this new motive pow- I
er. Several interrogatories were then propounded by honor- '
able members, and he answered thern with exceeding clear
ness and distinctness. He said, among o'her things, that
the maximum pres-ureis twelve pounds to the square inch,
and that the temperature nocessary to be added to the air, in
order to produce this pressure is only three hundred and
eighty-four degrees. The amount of heat lost by the process
of transfer amounts to .->nly one-eighth of the whole. The
saving could be carried still further; but it would not great
ly enhance the value of the machinc; as we can only carry
fuel enough to circumnavigate the glob", and that is suifi
cient. [Lor.i; continued applause.] As to speed, in con
structing this ship, nine miles only was contemplated. as
that was sufficient to render the enterprise commercially
profitable. A year ago, he was ridiculed for undertaking to
m*ke a cylinder fourteen feet in diameter; and now 'here are
houses in New York ready to cist aid bore cylinders twenty
feet in diameter, at their own risk! Such are the improve
ments in the arts, we have here at one bound produced a
cylinder of three time? the area of those ol Collins's sieam
eas; while, firmerly, by adding an Inch or two, w?? thought
we did area! things. [Laughter.] With reference to loco
motive engine, Capt. Ericcson said lie could now build one
fast enough i"r freighting purpose*; but in ->no yt>,ir hence
he could construct one to run with the fastest. [Apj l.su-- t
Allu.lintl<-crtl 'ric ship, he slated that she could cairv j
three mm-- much fr? I; lit as the fast Atlantic steamer.", ?h
she h; s an crrtire freight deck, on which no tval is carried; j
theeo-li- in ii.!* vessel being stowed below the freight d?i-k
in bunkers, alongside the engine. Tip; cost, including ih"
patent charges, is the same as that of an ordinary ocean
steamer; tio that the employer will have the kisctit <?i the
advantages ot the new motive power without udJiii mel
pay. hi relation to stationary engines, he said tint they
would not lie so cheap as high-pressure engine*, but ab >ui
the same as those of low-pressure.
"Getult.men," he said, '1 riow want you to join rue in
drinking the health of a gsmlem in to whom the country i?
indebted, to whom the urorld is indebted, for having ibis new
motive powi r ic-reil on such a magnificent scale as not to

This stringent law is the natural and {unavoidable fruit
of th? duci 1 inrs preached by the abolitionists. The alma
houses uf Illinois, well saye the P.oeton Courier, "have for
long tiir.e bun crowded with blacks-wtio, under lhe en
couragement of AbolitionietB, have run away from their mas
ters in the neighboring elave States. Having got thsir
liberty without any preparation or means for supporting
themselves, they become, to a man, vagabonds and paupers;
for your genuine Abolitionists if he can only du what he is
pleased to call "breaking the fetters of the slave," cares
nothing at all for the beggary, starvation and crime which
ure su sure to follow: "Let the whole African race perish!
he cries, "rather than give up un iota ot our principle"?
which principle consists in shutting the eyes to the practical
effects of every thing. Now, the people of Illinois are no:
slaveholders, and have no liking for slavery, but they have
had quite enough of Abolitionism. 1 hey have been taxed hea
vily long enough to support runaway negroes, and are reason
ably alarmed to see their territory overrun >ilth vagabonds,
and they have rceorted to this anti-negro law lor a remedy
for the growing evil. It is a savers one sursly, but the
blacks and mulattoes have to thank tlieirjpaler friends, the
Abolition and Free Soil fanatics, for this act of Injustice
and cruelly. Let the guilt lie where it Jbclongs?those men
cannot evade It."
But, contend the Freesoll papers in Illinois, the law will
be repealed or treated as void by the people. As to tho first
point, we would cite the fact that tho Indiana law, to the
same purport, is evidently p jpuhr among the people of that
State, and, although it has been some tirae in operation, no
attempt has been made to repeal it. A resort has been pro- j
posed by some fanatics to the higher law of rebellion, to ,
nullify this act. But, with the New-Vork Journal of Com
merce, w-e do not look for such factious proceedings on the
part of any intelligent people. Some recent instances of
" succosrful recistance to the laws have encourngeed trans
gressors to think they can rebel with Impunity ; but we
think they will find themselves mistaken in the end, for the
people will soon perceive that they must either have law or
anarchy, and that if one law may bo trampled under foot
with impunity, eo may another; and so may all others. 1 he
principle is the same in each case; and it is one which, it
carried out, would resolve society into its original elements,
and deluge the nation with blood. As to the moaning and
force of the law, the Free Press says -'It prohibits the en
trance of free colurod persons into the Slate, under the pcnal
ty of being sold into slavery, ana authorizes the admission of
slaves if brought in or sent by their masters.' Or, more cor
rectly, it authorizes the iransit of slaves through the State,
on their way, for instance, from Kentucky to Missouri;
a permission which the geogrjphical position of Illinois ren

Presuming.Messrs. Editors, that the American public must

overlooks the picturetquc Valley of itic Vumuri, nd Is r?
cognised us the most healthy place on the Island; and a*

Immediately upon she arrival of Col. King at Havana, Mr.
Jenckes, (who is from Rhode Island, of the blood ol its for

and natmal lo him, on hearing thai the physician was desi
rous thai he should irhalo the fumes of boiling sugar, prof
fered him and his family one ol his estates, and estate
on I lie Cutnbre was chosen, as combining everything
desiiabh; and the Vice-President, with his two
interesting nieces, sailed hence, in the Pulton, on
the 6th, arriving ui SlfUmuan ihe same d.iy; from whence
they proceeded to the Cumbre, whete he may be <i-en every

It was most opportune, as he was reading in the London

Mrs. Slowe's lying publication, of the treatment of our .-lave

to quote the same back to England for the instruc'ioii and
humiliation, and shame, ol our impudent calumniators in
that vaunting country. We should, indeed, ln?e more than
good cause to be ashamed of our country, an I t" dread (li

any portion of our population to he treated, (and treated uith

j Frightful Condition of the Indian Liborerf (Coolie*) in tU*
hi and of Trinidad (EnglUh Wat India.) Letter written
lu Martinique in June, 18-13.
" I;," writes a c d mist of Martinique, wh > had just made
a visit to the Island of Trinidad, " 1 eould fully describe to
you the evils and sufferings endured by ths Indian immi
grants [Coolies] in that horribly gorerned colony, I should
rend the heart of the Christian world by a recital ol enor
mities, unknown in the w >rit periods of coloni il slavery.
" Borrowing the language of the prophet, 1 can truly say.
' The wiiole head is sick, and tho waole heart is sad j from
Ihe. sole of the foot to the top of the head, nothing is sound ;
wounds, sores, swollen ulcers, which are neither bandaged, ;
nor soothed, nor rubbed with oil.'
"My soul has been deeply afflicted by all that I Invo seen :
How many human beings lo?t! So fir a? I can judge, in j

JO THK LEGISLATURE OF Villi; IN I A.
A resident oi the South Side ot James uvcr and one op
posite it? the can.il now used, would respectfully c-ll u;c
attention ol ihe Legislature to the following facte: At the
time it was proposed to undertake the construction oi the
canal it was foreseen tliat there would be a serious otjee
tion to it, on account of the disadvantage the people would
tie under, on the opposite side oi the river from the canal, in
ironing tln'ir produce, across I lit: river to and from the
tanal This objection was so tr-at, that there can't be a
doubt that it would have prevented subscriptions to, ami
vter in favor of, the canal on the South Side, and so the
-cheine would h't*<? been defeated; but the o'.-jection wa.
protnp'l/ met UI,d ad tn it ted, and ussurancis and pledges

diiiidv.tntaLCS lh<7 would he under shoul.l be removed, by
'rstablis ag connections, for the accommodation ol the
1 Soutli Side^by dams or bridges, so that they shoul 1 have .rce
i to the canal, lor the delivery of produce and the
I rei-t ? f the iiriicies shipped up the canal. Since it appear." 'hat
, this work. which wab for so inanv years the peculiar favorite
1 --f the Legislature, is now repudiated and to be cast
I nil. mav the people of the South-Side be permitted to state

i t mplicd with, in giving access to the canal at proper and
convenient points! ,\i I or wrongs, it needs no argument to
I shew that, it wus admitted by the assurance 'hat there
| should be connections. They have not been ni i ie. Then as
' 'o tiie c.vt< nt, ii is now stated that for a distance of from 4;J
' tu about 70 miles from Richmond, the people on the South
! Side pay lor catting grain to Richmond, nsarle or ab iut

n is believed the people on the North-Side,about within above
i tlHUr.ces i t boatage, pay from about three to four cents per
i bush' I On the South-Stele it is in about double these prices,
; including carrying the a/ticles in small boats across the river

i who in n iked justice is bound to give rebel?
I he writer c;.n see but one answer? the Legislature. T lie
! right to the use of the river was n natural rtyht ; it was an
I ii,d-feasible riiiht witliout compensation. It could not
have been allowed to h-ve been taken without compensation.
II is there :ti any way been compensation 1 Ii 'here his, i;
