Is it.the merchant, who daily pledges his word that the 'calico has fast colors, and. the sugar free from sand and the broadcloths were bought low, and are offered at. a small' .dvance on first cost? Isit the minister, who vows -at the altar his.compliance with.ibe creed and usages of his church?' Is it the mechanic, who-promises to get his work doneby'Sa turday night, and to have it well done ? Is it the farmer, who owes a balance for his land, and has pledged house and fields to pay it ? is it the physician or the law yer, who severally pledge the best servi ces of their heads and hands-to their em ployers? Where is the man that opposes ple,] ges? Ten to one he is a politician, who will tell you in an instant what party he belongs to, and who is his candidate for President ; and lie will not only let you know that he is in for his party without limit, but will beset you to commit your self with equal positiveness. If be is a married man, he has pledged his hand and heart in a holy vow to love, hodor, and cherish the partner of his life, till death should part them. If he is a bach elor, and rails against pledges, alas! he will stay a bachelor; that blessedness which consists in singleness is all that earth has for him he could not think of pledging himself for life. As to the ladies: we cannot believe any of them of are seriously opposed to pledges; for if they are matrons, they surely hare tried the experiment of a solemn vow, and generally are quite willing to main tain it; and if they are young ladies,, and go against pledges, it must be owing to some new fashion to which eye have not yet been introduced. The young lady, if one could be found. who abhors pledges, must have given up all hopes of matrimo ny and sought to replace the charming witcheries which nature gave her, with the frenzies- of the weird sisters; and those who keep an eye on her, may ex pect, to see her some morning . mounting. her broom, and sailing away through-the keyhole, a witch in good earnest.-Utica Washingtonian. General Causes of Diseases.-Many people injure their health. by drinking. who seldom get drunk. The continued habit of soaking, as it is called, though its effects be not less pernicious. When the vessels are kept constantly full and upon the stretch. the different digestions can neither be duly performed, nor the humours properly prepared. Hence, most people of this character, are afflicted with Gout, Gravel, &c. If these disorders' do not appear, they are seized with low spir its, hypocondriacal affections, and other symptoms of indigestion. The habit of drinking proceeds frequent ly from misfortunes in life. The misera ble, fly to it for relief. It affords them in deed a temporary relief. But alas ! this solace is short lived, and when it is over, the spirits sink as much below their usual tone as they had before been raised above it.-Hence a repetiton, of the dose be comes necessary, and every fresh dose makes way for another, till the unhappy person becomes a slave to the bottle, and at length falls a sacrifice to what at first was taken only as a medicine. No man is so dejected as the drunkard, when - his debauch has goqe off; hence it is, that those who have the greatest flow of spit its, while the glass circulates freely, are of all others the most melancholy when sobei, and often put an end to their own exis tence in a fit of spleen or ill humor. Drunkenness not only proves destruc tive to health, but likewise to the facul ties of the mind. .it is strange that crea-. tures whe value themselves on account of a superior degree of reases to thatrof the brutes, should take pleasere in sinking so far belowv them. Were such voluntai-ily de prive themselves of the use of reason,to con tinue ever after in that condition,-it would seem but a just punishment. Though this be not the consequence of one act of in toxIcation, it seldom fails to succeed a course of it. By a habit of drinking, the grea test gentas ts ol'ten reduced to a mere idiot. Intoxication is peculiarly hurtful to young persons. It heats their blood, im pairs their strength, and obstructs their groweth ; it is not only in itself an abom inable vice, but is an inducement to ma ny others There is hardly any crime so horrtd, that the drunkard will not perpe trate it for the love of liquor. ~We *have known them sell thejr clothes, and even food, to obtain the accursed draught. Or-acle of Health. Sfone Jug.-This is a very common name for a prison, and owres its origin to the following circumstance: "A king in India once had a great jug made, and used the trunk of a large tree for a cork. Into this jug he was in the habit of putting all his prisoners of war. On one occasion hej had abouit one hun dred men iin his jug, whben i e undertook to stand oti the top of the s opple, -and mnake a speech to his warriors; but the air insidd became very dense, and' the stop ple bmrsted out, carrying the king up into the air." . The Scolchma~n's Prayer.-Keep my purse from the lawyer, and my body from the Doctor, and .my soul from the evil. A . Composing. Maie.-Thie Neyw York Express says:-"We- haveti . since heard of newly invented magbiuegg", both in this country and Europe,7liiset= ring type; none of which, we believi har,hve - have come into practical use. We have never, until yesterday, had a- -opportunity of seeing any of these invondionifwhich are so intimately connected withor vo cat ion. M r.yohu V. Ford, of Troy, ex hibited to us yesterday a model ofoaehe has invented, and which is now anints way to the Patent Office at Washington. J. is truly a wonderful apiece of.ingenuily and skill, and can~ be plaged uponapre cisely similar toba piano forte.. Alady, or child, after-it becomes familiar wiIh the letters, can use the keys with the rapidity' almost of thought, and as the finger.otr ches the key,' the typo fall precse. to their place into line. Mr. Ford baibee engaged a long time in brign ti chine to its present perfection, andbel s he has mastered every difficul. has, he has made one of the a s~mp r tant discoveries since printing wa first invented. The machine will, made perfect elfectually knock all type-settni into pi. We will also add tiat a'machine accompanies the above for distribution, by which type are placed in diferen hoS es, by the same amusing 9 eratin o playing on the eyfs." Receipt for Curing Han been handed the followingrecemprf rcu. ring hams by oneofthe mostemnenrprac titioners in this;city., the saleraius sda least new to us, add.ie-therefore pub it, although it maynotbea new-ingredien in the receipt to others. In Cictnati where large quantities ofhams are annual,";' I cured, pepper, allspice,.cloves, nutmeg :tnnamon, and other little ingredients are - usually added, but to the receipt.

Scald' and -scun tn when cold pour the brine into the'cakunt til the hams are completely covered -. k hams should remain in this pickle atMleasr three months, and a little longer tiiiie would do them no harm.-American Farmer. K '" Squas/us.-It has been asserted. s the result of an accidential experiment; that squashes sown in the fall will eurtive the frosts of winter and spring, and will ripen much earlier than any which can be raised - by sowing in the spring. Those sown itr the spring and those sown in the fall,;Wgre in the case alluded to, exposed to a'severe frost ; the former . were killed, while ti latter survived. It may be worth a m - satisfactory experiment. Th'earliesrsal lads we know, are grown in this way. The same has been said of a speciesbf beans, and even of potatoes. To preserve good squashes in perfection great care is necessary to-keep them from the neighborhood of. others.of an inTferior kind, and especially of pumpkins.*. If" grown together, the good deteriorate,uend - the best squashes become bastard pump kins. However mysterious this fact mad appear, it is unquestionable; and it is prob ably to be explained on the same principles - with a fact no less unquestionable, that the different species of corn and or grais always mix when they grow in the neigh borhood of each other.-Selected. Observatories.-,There are two, ebserva tories now in course of erection iin the Dis trict of Columbiia. On one of these, oti Camp Hill, in Washington, is being erec ted under the provissions of an Act of Con gress, and is to be the home of the Nation al Observatory.

Esq.,of Baltimore. They consist of a large collce. tion of- ancient and modern medals and coins-dGrecian. Asiatic, Euroopean and Amorican. The late R~ev. M1r.
