Go, when the morning shineth,
Go, wlen ti le moon is bright,
Go, whllen the eve declineth,
Go, in the hush of night;
Go, with pure mind and feeling,
Fling earthly thought away,
A nd, in thy chamber kneeling,
Do thou in secret pray.
Remember all who love thee,
All who are loved by thee,
Pray fir those who hate thee.
If any such I here he;
Then for tIhyself in meekness,
A blessing humbly claim,
And link with each petition,
Thy great ledecmer's name.
Or, if 'fis cer denied theo
In solitude to pray,
Should holy thoughts come o'er thee,
When friends are rouid thy way,
E'et then the- silent breathing
Of thy spirit raised above,
Will reach His throne of glory.
Who 's Mercy, Truth, and Love.
Oh! not a joy or blessing,
With this can we compare,
The power that iIe hath given us
To pour our souls in prayer.
Whene'er thou pin'st in sadness,
Before his thotttool fall,
And retuember itn thy gladness,
Ilis Grace, who gave thee all.

10. lie has discoveredl that the needle,
when on the magetiec eitmntor, always lies

II Lie has discovered that what is cal

drawn itn the latest and best nautical charts,
but a great circle of the earth, or 11IMgnetii:

12. If a series of imagnetie ineridians he

pusses at the distance ofGd. 28m. frenti the
poles of the earth. ,

variation, like the magnetic poles, is not
stationary, but revolves round the earth in
6G years, and 32. -6s. in one year.

Iesther represents that the variation
of the tieedle canuot.be taken by any other
!methoa without a celestial observaionl; that
it caniot be taken atsea, even in fair weatlh
e., with accuracy, in consequence of the
imotion'of the vessel; that on land, and in
fmei weather, it is rarely taken with accura
cy; that no observation or the latitme can
tie taken at sea, or on land, withott. fair
weather; aud that great mistakes are ust
ally mle at sea, in calculatin,_, it; that fair
weather is eqally necessary fir taking the
longitude, whether by the chronmeter or
any other instrument; tih:,t attempts to deter
mine it at sea are known to lie generally
fruitless; and that great errors very fi'eitsent
ly occur, in attempts to determine it on land
that for three centuries it has been the grand
desideratuti of the commercial world to
discover a certain method of determining the
longitude; that for many years the Board of
Longitude, in London, ofl'red a reward of
X20,000sterling for this discovery, without
success: that hoard paid to the artist who
made the best chronometer carried ont by
Captain Parry, 1: 10,000 sterling. and since
then has oil'ered ?8,000 sterling to the per
son who should devise a method by which
the chronometer could be used at sea with
entire a-:curacy in discovering the longitide;
and that board gave Cap.ain Ross A5.000
sterling for approaching so near the north
ttagnete-pole, as 70d. 6m. north latitude.
and 90d. west longitude, an error of3d, 3-m.
of latitude, and of from 3d, to 4d. of* longi
tude; that owing to the impossibility of fix
ing a ship's exact place at sea, hundreds of
American vessels are amiually lost; that in
1836 as repoited in the public prints, more
than eight hundred were thus lost most of

He farther represents that repeaed andi
direct attempts have been made, by sever
al foreigners in the city of New York, to
possess themsives of the entire secret of his
invention and discoveries, in order, as lie
cannot doubt, it) seeire to themselves, if
possilie, patents in Europe, and. if not, to
gai a high reward from tle Britili Parla
tament, as well as any honor whieb might
accrue front the invention and discovery;
that Godfrey, a native ofr Philadelphia,
after .having invented t lie giadranit. explaiti
ed the invention it anl Englishman, of' the
name of Iladley, and disclosed to him his
design ol' taking ontt ta paient flr it in Etng
land; that ladley anticipaeil him in the pt
tent and the reward. gave Ihis ime to the
imst,umneut, claimed the ivntinii as his
own, land tr1anlsAmrel the lonirs of it, in) the
view of the world, froi A merica to Ellg
land; that, as the discoveries and the inmveti
tion, of wvich lie has spokea, are wholly
his own, he alone is eutiled to any profit
which may accrue from them; and that,
should they be thought to conimer any hon
or, it is dueI only to himt anid to the'land of
his birth.
lie further states that lie has had the
htonor of' explatining these dliscoveries, atind
of extihiimg the geotmester to a conisiderabhle
number of the mteihmers of both I lou~ses of
Congress, as lie trusts to their satishemtin
atnd that lhe hopes to have thte pleasturo of'
doimng the same to the (other' members of' the
two Houses durimng the present week.
le f'urthter represents that lie has comii
menced the pubtliication* of a volumte, itt
quarto, to exptlaimn the discoveries int mans
nietism, as wefh as tIhe mnature and muse of the
geomeuter, to lbe aiccomtpanmied with nunmr
ons plates, anid ttended with great expemise,
that the manumfacture of the iustruntmnt, ini
order to imtrodumce it into general us~e, will
requtire a large outlay, timuch larger thani heo
is able to meet, with nto itmmediate retturnts,
and thaut it is his purpose, if'enabsled sc) to
(d0, to proceed to Enaglanid and l,'ranice, to
secure what lie conceives to lie a in1st re
ward for the labors of a life so snec'sessfulfly
devoted to the wvelfuire of' his coumntr'y anid of'
lie therefore most respectfullyI petitiotis
both flouses of Contgress to give the premni
sea (hue contsidlerationt; andti if the iniventtion
and discoveries wvhich he has recited shall
appear to them of high imnpor'tance atid vath
ne to the p)eonle of' the Untited Stattes, thten
to enable him by their friienidly atssistnce,
to proceed wvithiout delay, to the ac'otm
pilishmenit of thet objects, lie hats specifid,
as well as to feel that, in prosecuting thenm
thus far, he has not jeoparded thme ultimate
welfare of hitmself amnd oif a family depien
dant on his daIly exertions f'or their support;
he giving an express pledge that, for the
imstrtumentts purchasied for the tnatiomnal ships
and for thec service of the United States,
110thing all ever he demanded for the pa
tent. Anl, as he may find in Enrope that
the instrunmenits may he made with greater
accuracy and on beter torms, and that the
work proposed with the plates, may also
be better executed there than here, he also
reqests that lie iay be atahorized to import
both the noks fand the instruments as both
sare, mr an important sense, a national con
cern, duyfree.
Vah this miatement of facts, le cheerful
ly commits hitiself to ohe justice and honor
of Congress and his country.

A Goon Cow.--The value of a good cow can
scarcely be overestimated. A good cow is one
of the greatest benefactions ever bestowed upos
the humian fiintmly in the form of a qnadrnpcrl;
and every friend to true respectability and nmerit,
will be mnore than half inclined to take off hi,4
hat to tuelh a noble aiini; for she certuibly does
!ore good im her way thine inost of the noliv pol
iticians im the coitry in any way. We 'havo

than the milk oW one goodl Cow.
We say we have kimown somie sieh cows; ait
we deein themnt very worthy acfinaiitance. If
it is not an honor, it is certiinly a pleasure to
have known them; and we are not surprised at
the suspersiition of the poor Ilindoos, who iade
the cow an otbject of idolatrons worship- With
ippetites not depraved by luxury, they sat clown

be seen with their basins at night gathering
around this their daily betiefactor with the same
gatetidl pleasure with which tho Israelites came

Respect and ionor the cow; treat her well; be
grudge her no kindness: 'here is no animal that
will iore fully compen-.snte your liberality; and
when we hear farmers say, as we ollen- do, in a
boasting wny, how intch Gutter and milk they get
from their cows. and then add, "but they go in a
very poor pasture and we give them nothiug,and
in winter keep theit upon nothing better tan
fresh meadow hay," we are halfdisposed to say
that such owners deserve nothing, and oughtt t
o i the same pasture with their cows. As wo
.ve said on a former occasion, it is flse and
of native stock, and raised by her present owner.
It adds to the imany proofs which are constantly
presenting themselves, to) establish the great po
sition that our present dairy stock requires only
carefutl selection and good keeping to furnish as
valitable race of inilkimg aniinals as we can ex.
