'he project ut the Mittiiry proposes to strip the colony of'ail its con stituiuiajl tight., and subject it to arbitra I) authority lot five years, as the correc tive W1 it coniuuiacy. i tie matter as closely scanned, it will be seen that Great Britain, has tiund it iupossiule to liberate the blacks without enisavtug the whites. It is fouid that the severny necessarily exerted by the public authorities to keep the slaves in suburdau ation, sice the immediate supervision 0l masters is withdrawn, is greater than be lure, anti that punishments since the seve rance ofr the community of interest and sy mpathy growing out of the old relations existing between the whites and blacks, are much more fatal. Froni the statements which we give bi-low front an English pa per, it will be seen that the wh"I scheme of British policy, in regard tr , c inl Jamaica, must resolve itself : - ... gle between the races for e.. will end in the exterminati't -. 1 - T.hte period is looked to % , ':. e of suffrage conceded to the free .! ..:: . put the whip of legislation in the ha:i inat numerically preponderating race; and then, it not belore, Jamaica, in its domes tie Government, will he as much a black Government as St Domingo. It will be observed that the British journal from which we quote, looks to the ultimate as cendancy of the negroes in the Assembly of the island, and very naturally antici pates that the onlygqnestion will be "black or n hite," or which race shall govern. The result of such atn issue can hardly be doubtful, when it is stated, on the author ity of the Ministry, that "'There were in Jamaica about 5,000 whites, 28,000 persons of color and blacks, who had been some time free, and 350,000 negroes lately emancipated. The con stituent body had been represented by Sir Lionel Smith as between 1500 and 1600: but the number was perhaps, about 2,000, and neither the colored population nor the blacks had at present any vote in the e lection of the 45 members of the House of Assembly. Fifteen months must elapse before the 350.00) blacks and persons ol color would have any influence on the eore'sentation." When the 350.000 blacks become con stituents of the Assembly, it is not diffi cult to foresee that the colony will ne longer be a white, but a negro colony. That it may be a more qtuiet dependancy andt a mtore valuable possession to the Crown, is quite possible. The negroes may submit more stupidly to the arbitra, ry authority of the mother country thani at intelligent assembly of white men, whe know sotmethinag of political rights; aml this mtay serve to explin that philanthro phy which has beena at wvork, undle the color of emancipating one race, te enslave both. THE MILFORD BARD.-The Delawari Gazette copies the lines of' our poetica. coarresponidetnt "Benedict." uponi the in carceration of the Milford Bard, and in dulges in the following prefatory remarks Baltimore Transcript. We regret to learn from the following lines, of the Baltimore Transcript, thai our old highly esteemed friend, the "ill ford Bard,'' has agaitn fallen into bad hah its, and' become a volutary inmate ea the Baltimore jail, in order to cut'e him. self of his inttetmperate habits cont ractedl as he says, by i complaint ofthe heart ii other days. No poet of this or any othei age has depicted in strongeror more glow ing colors, the thousand evils that are tc be foutnd in the wine cup-no one, per haps, has more frequently atnd sensibl3 felt the poisonous fangs of the "worm a the still," than "the Milford Bard." Th~ most powerful aptpeals to shun the danger thait lie hiddent in the bowl, that we havy ever read, were from his pen-and yet hi thbat has sung so sweetly and written er powerfully against thig most datigeron enemy to mankind; and has drunk its bit ters to the very dregs, is still the slave ts the denmoti of disaipntiotn. We pity him lHe is a tan of the finest tale'nt, and hu for this single fault miriht nanoni nn be very heavy and must be paid in cash-but how can we meet them, if those upon whom we depend, di.sapipoint us? The money we pay for paper, and rent, and wages. counts up bsy the hundred and the thousand. while our claim upon our pa rons count up by threes and tens-the former in the expressive language of the poet, "ehbb out by oceans," while the latter "comes in by drops." In a recent interview with a young clergyman, settled in a country village, who has several small children, he declar ed, that after a deep consideration of the subject, after an examination of all those arguments by which men so often flatter themselves, that they have done their du !y, whn they have only subserved their interest or consulted their convenience, he had come to the conclusion, that it was his duty to send his children to the common district school of the village. "Il" said he "I am really one of my church and of my people, then the school which I assist in providing for their children, is as good for mine as fir them. I shall not be so likely to watch over the school, to exert myself for its advancement, to look after the manners or the children, to cultivate their good affections, to preserve themn from bad habits, front the vices of lying, prrofanity, & obscenity, if my own children are not a mong thetn. Snch is human nature, that I dlare not trust my own ability to per form my duty. ifi set my own interest in opposition to theirs, or sever the connex ion between them," Valuaile Invention.-A powerful hear ing trumpet has lately been invented; it is s0 ('onstruacted as to stand upon a table, and receive the voices of persons in the roomia, which it magnifies to an extraordin ary degree. The power of the instrument is thus described by the inventor; I placed the soniferon at the end of a room sixty feet in length, at the other extremity of which two persons were in low conversa tion. As long as I continued to hold the tube to my ear, I could hear every word they said to each other; but the moment I removed it. I was otly sensible of a mur mur of voices, without distinguishing a srliable. On an experimenter not deaf. the effects ol the instrument are by no means comfortahle as every word -falls with the force or a blacksmith's hammer: and, in addition thereto, it makes the ear ring with noises that no other person per ceives. Help to Vision.-An English paper states that Mr. West, of London. has in vented an instrument called the Standope lens, which for power; distinctness, and the ease with which it can he used.surpas ses every previous attempt. It may be worn like an eye glass. and the prices - 'v from five shillings to twenty. accor it is mounted in gold, -silver, or . perceiving objects invisibe -mites in cheese, cells in ater-its poner is .' : .,., :- lUse will af se m s,'- - e insitue general use. Cold Water for Cn.. '. we know it does from a ph.a' ing in this citv, we have no hesw - publishing the annexed coinmnticatio. -- N. Y. Com. Adr. "During the prevalence of this hot weather there is nothing so grateful to in rants as cold water; these little creatures sufferequally with adults from thirst, es pecially at night: yet. strange to say. the mother either neglects or fears to offer mid water. In my practice, in several in stances, I have been called to see children laboringutnder fever from the effects of thirst, and, upfoni giving cold water, have had the pleasure oif seeing them recover in a very short time, a free perspirariont fol lowing the use of tis natural remed. Real tnirst cantnot bte allayed by any thing as well as by water. When a child is feverish at night, ii will, in a majo-rity of eases, be cured by freely sponging its face and limbts with tepid water, and allowintg it to drink cold water. Let parents who have sickly.children (of any age) follow this p~lan if it does no good, it will produce no evil; but I aml certain, it will arrest much suffering by a very simple and grateful remedy." Mary Bacon's BaconSatved.-T heMaine Legislature has granted a divorce to Col. Ehenezer Cobb and his wife Mary Bacon. Tlhe Colonel is on the wrong side of 50, while the bride hasjust passed the right side of 20. For this divorce, the only course That wisely could be taken, Fair Mary sued-the case was proved, And thus she saved her Bacon! Can any blame the youthful dame, Who gave the court a job? When all the corn is shelled and gone; Say-who would keep the Cobb? Holland.-The draining of the celebra tedl Lake of H arlem, so long contem plated, has at laut been decided upon by the States General of Holland The expense is esti mated at eight millions of guilders. (about three mnillioras of dollars.) It is like add ing a new provice to the country. To preserve a Horse against Bots. Take of bee% w'ax. mutton tallow, and sugar each 8 ounces, put it into one quart o~f wart" milk, andI heat it until it all melts and mixes, then put the whole into a bot tle, and just befotre the wax, &c. begins to bar-. detn, give it to the horse. Two or three tta giterwahls'iVe him physl. come one of the most useful members of society; yet the mouster has long since so fastened his fangs upon him, that he is a burilien to himself, and a source of grief and pain to his friends. Well do we remember having a few years since, visitei the bard, in his "gar ret" at Milford. In one corner of the room was his couch, on which he was lying with a scorching fever upon him brought on by too free indulgence in spirituous li quor. Shelves were erected around the walls which from the ceiling to the floor were covered with books that had been presented to him by his numerou friends, and newspapers, most of which were our own, containing articles from his pen. A number of oil paintings frot his own pencil were hanging around, and oua a chair beside his bed, were several musi cal instruments on which he occasionally am.used himself, when not engaged in his studies. Amiong other things we noticed a bust of himself, prepared by his. own hand and an astronomical instrument of his own construction. composed of a great number of brass and wooden cog wheels and other machinerv made with a simple penknife, and on vhich lie had spent many a toilsome hour. in endeavor ing to explain the regular motions of the planets around the earth. All of these however, were partially 4iished; and whether oir not they were ever com pleted, we have never learied. A num ber of his poetical etiusions were likewise scattered about in diflerent parts of the room. And here in this lonely retreat, for it was but seldom he admitted any one into his study, he appeared cheerful and happy; at least as happy as could be ex pecte Of one in his situation. He is now in a land of strangers; and although he has voluntarily become an inmate of a loathsome prison, he cannot find that repose which he experienced in his lonely garret at Milford, and we trust that measures may lie speedily taken to procure his return to his friends and home where lie will be more likely to find a balm to his broken spirits than can he ex pected in the situation in which he is now, we fear, unfortunately placed. From the Chronide 8r Sentinel. "Money, the sweet allurer of our hopes, Ebbs out by oceais, and comes in by drops." We are not sufficiently acquainted with the history o' the bard. upon whom we have drawn for the above couplet, to de : 'he question whether or not he ever .. -cted nith a newspaper office, - n-%perience has taught us, ---.iki . t -P is no business of life ta .: more applica M.T'.-...'...-.. ...ting office are a -m 2 . ;- -. - ..

If a distant subscriber stops our paper without paying his arrearages, the most we can do is to write him a letter enclosing hiq account, andi then depend upon his honor for the payment. There is no man in our free country, where industry is not only unfei tered by taxms, but whets it can always command honorable and profitable em ployment, who cannot pay at some period of the year, the small amount of a sub scription to a newspaper. And yet how dilferent is our experience as to the facts. How many hundreds are there, who with ample means. will take a newspaper for years, and then move away to some dis tant section or State, and got only tnt pay up for it, bitt not even not notify the proprietor of their intention to remove, and leave to the Postmaster, the unpileas ant task of notifyinig him that the paper is not taken fromt the offte, and that the stub scriber has left the country? In some in stances it is the result of forgetfulness, and we who lose our labor thus, are apt to feel that it is criminal forgetfulness. In other castes it ia the result of dishonesty; the sutbscribter feeling that the distance he tween himself and his ptihlisher is a safe guarud again~t being harrassed by duns, in person, or coerced by law, hardens his heart againsit the stings of conscience and the denmanids of honor and right. There are indeed some who appear to think they contfer a great favor upon alt editor by sub scritbing for his paper; never think of pay iiig; become off'ended when we employ an Agent, at great expense, to go 'to their houses to collect that which should have been paid at our office, and perhap. dis mises him at last without pay, and with a curse upon his head and haif a dozen upon ours. Matty act thus, without proper re Ffli-etion upon the nature of our rights and their own just and honest obligations. To our distant subscribers and adverti sing patrons we say, once for all, we d~e pend upon your honor to pay us-we nev er expect to resort to the courts of justice to enforce our small demands. While thus recounting, however, our troubles and hopes, we feel it a duty incumbent upoin fus to say, that we have very many pa trons, who honorably and regularly pay up their sutbscriptions once every year with nut failure; antd with many expressions of satisfaction for ihe ample betnefirs they re ceive from our labors. If all would do so, our p~ath of dutty wvould he made agreeable and our time, by being uinocnpied in run > ing and sendliu;: after those who fail to follow that good example, would be wholly cldevoed so the improvement oif our paper. - 1Jbar the lsetefit '3f allh der emaen ate MAIRTTRs OF THE PREIs.-On the 18th of September, 1797, the French directory issued the following proclamation; "Or ders are hereby given to the executors o the man lates of justice to arrest and con duct to the prison of La-Force, the editors and printers of-here the papers are named 29 in number)-all guilty of having com spired against the internal repose of the Republic." All the presidents of the Na tional Convention were. with one or two exceptions,journalists. Of the sixty-three % ho attained that honor. eighteen were guillotined, three committed suicide, ei;ht were transported, six imprisoned for hfe, four became mad and died at Bicetre, twenly-two were declared outlaws, and there were only two who escaped without eastigation of some kind. If we extend this synoptical tableau to the entire press. we shall find its proportions pretty exact. There perished from 1789 till 1797 at least one-half of the political writers of Paris. "If we cannot alter things, Why then we'll change their names six." In the days of yore when drinking flip was a fashionable mode of dissipation, a worthy old gentleman came near losing his life by its excessive use. While dan ger thus stared him in the face he uttered a most solemn vow that if he recovered he never would taste another drop of lip. Health was restored, and with it his former appetite returned. Self-denial could not long main tain the eupremacy. "Cuff," said he one day to a favorite and favored slave, 'bring me a mug of beer.' 'Yes massa.' 'Pt in a little old Jamaica, Cuff.' "Yes mash Sa." "Now drop in some sugar." "Yes Iassa." -Cuff, set it down on the hearth: and stick the hot end of the andiron in it." Cuff paused a little. "Massa,me thought you swear you drink no more flip. "This is not flip, Cuff; you may call it warm. -weetened beer with a little rum in it." "Yes massa, me berry tickled to-but but-" "But what, you black rascal'?"
