In every condition of life, the person who will deliberately utter falsehoods, is very properly, considered worthless. Lying is a vice, so utterly degrading, that' in, all ages aid in allstates of society. universal contempt and odium has been the portion of him: whb.practices it-not only because of the, miehief and injury resulting from its practice, but because it is the meanest and most cowardly of all the vices to which poor: human nature. is subject. Truth, consequently, has ever been considered the first.-requisite in the character of a gentleman ; and there is no instance on record of an officer of the Army or Nary being convicted of falsehood, who was permitted to remain in service. - :The law of the land declares., that an officer guilty of conduct unbecoming a gentleman, shall be cashiered ; and by universal consent, a falsehood is considered a erime within the meaning of the.law, and punished. both in the British and American service, by deg radation. So utterly disgraceful has false hood 'been considered in all ages, that since the introduction of duelling, the charge of falsehood has ever been deemed abundaat cause for a resort to an appeal to arms, because if true, the party accused ceases to be considered worthy the asso eiation . of gentlemen. And the same spirit is apparent in the fact that, among boys of every class, and rowdies of every color, the lie is- always considered good cause for a fight. "If, then, by universal consent, false hood in a private individual is considered so disgraceful and degrading,-how much more unpardonable is it in the conductor of a public press-who not only disgraces himself, but seeks, by falsehood, to do in jury to a third party and mislead the pub lic ?" - From the Boston Star. "COURrING" vs. -ATTENTION." This subject which, always important, is daily becoming peculiarly so, and we design to call the attention of the young people occasionally, in the hope of arrest ing the progress of an alarming and de structive evil. Young ladies are bound to fall in love as soon as possible, and bound to be bound to a.partner for life, as soon as the necessary preliminaries can bo made-such as get tingea lover, -fascinatig hiti thoroughly. being courted, having the question p.tpped, sin; :the- woddia : *riiients io=irray. iarried ' Thie youffg man '1s hound to be aallant and police. and to admire withont stint, all 'the pretty gifts known and un knownto'cdoff the beaver, offer the arm, invite to the ride, the theatre.' and the pleasant saunter-ill short, to do all the subdres deded to. bow his deotion anl glWttiut oWrd t.: sex unt" sonie en chaffto hrow.her spellgroupil him, anvi"--h$inks"iibilued; into a' common placeindilerent, careless Bealict. Now. out of these things' grow diflicul ties. A. young man admires a pretty girl and'iust manifest it ; he can't help doing so'fdr the life of him. The young Ildy has 'a tender heart, reaching out like vein tendrils for something to cling to, she sees the admiration; is flattered, begins soon to love, expects some tender avowal. and gets so far as -to decide'she will choose a white satin under, a thin gause, &c., at the very moment that the gallant she half loves, is popping the question to another damsel ten miles off. Now tie difficulty lies iii not precisely understanding the difference between polite attention and the tender manifestations of sighing love. Admiring a beautiful girl, and wishing to make a wife of her are not the sama thing, and therefore it is necessary that a datnsel should be upon The alert to discover to which class the attentions paid her by handsome and fashionable young gentle men belong. It is hard to drawv the exact line of separation, between polile atten tions and downwvright courting, hut our great age and extensive experience havo enabled us to observe enough to aid the young and artless maiden, in deciding upon tis matter.

The scenery around the village of Har- i per's Ferry ; on the Virginia Shore of 1 the Potomac River, is among the most < wild and grand we have- ever seen ; not t excepting the Niagara Falls. The great i cataract is not there, but all; the other ele- s ments of stupendous and terrific grandeur i present themselves on every- baud. Mr. t Jefferson thought it was worth a voyage e from Europe to view this scenery. Geol- I ogists number this place among the many c in our country where an -immense lake t has broken through its mountain barrier, I and found an outlet to the ocean.. The great Blue Ridge, in which the gap has been made for the passage of the waters. t corresponds in its geolgical formation on ( the opposite shores 4Whe Potomac. The t rock is the same, and the jagget projee. tions, from the base to the summit, indi cate the violence of the disruption by c which they have been separated. The altitude of the peaks also correspond, t though the ascent is more precipitous on t the Virginia than the Maryland side. < The actual height of the mountain, met sured from the river, we do iot know; but it makes one's head dizzy to look up to the top of its brow on the Virginia side, I from the "p.oint of rocks" on the other I side of the Potomac ; through which a t passage has been cut, or rather blown, for i the 'Baltimore and Ohio Railroad," and I the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, which c run side by side at this place, until they reach a point nearly opposite the village of Harper's Ferry, where the railway I crosses the river, and pursues its tray through Virginia until within a few mdtes I of Cumberland. its present eastern termi nus, it crosses the stream again, into Ma ryland, Hlarper's Ferry is a thriving place. not only from its situation on the canal and railway, but from the immense armory which the General -Government hajIes tablished there long bfore'either of tlicse great enterprises had been thought of. The watei power is-immense' and unfail ing, and the manufacturing of arms-is: car oa'o in at ai y'extent ed. a are not' aware that any cannon are cast at,tbis filice; tlidgh our stay was too short to allow ainy particular obscrvations. On one occsion 'we were kindly conducted throigh ibe various an I mig'ity esta'ilisht ments. but rer'ollect no foundery for cas ting those engines of slaughter, which have become, in modern tunes, the prin cipal reliance of armies. The Shenandoah River, having erle: ted irs tribute from the innumerable streamis by which the pine country on the western side of the Ilte Ridge, In Virgin ia, is drained, disembogues its waters into the Potomac at Harper's Frry ; but neit her the principal nor tributary stream is navigable, except for rafts in time of freshets. Both rivers have a rapid decent from their sources in the mountains, and moreover flow over rocky beds. But a fine canal, from tidewater at Georgetown, and Alexandria in 'ie District of olum bin, has nearly reached Cuntirland, at the foot ofthe Alleghany Mountains, and will soon be completed to that place ; to which town the railway has already reached, and has also .a stem stretching away to the town of Winchester in Wes tern-Virginia. and another to Frederick City in Maryland. Both canal au-I rail way are designed ultimately to connect the A tlantic Ocean with the waters of the "Greast West." The great Cumberland Valley. .vhich stretches itself out from the~ Potomac Rivetr, northward throuigh tihe states of Maryland and Pennsylvania, and south ward through the state or Virginia. and lying between :he Blue Ridge and the Alleghany Mountains, commences at the junction of the Shenandoah anid the Poto mac. It abounds with. limestone, and fortms one of the most fertile regiouts of our country. It is, undoubtedly, exceeded in depth of soilyby some districts west of the Alleghanies, but no part of the United States produces larger crop. of wheat, or, in aomne part of it. of Indian corn, and grass. Wheat, however, is the great sta ple, and the average product, per acre, is not, perhaps, equaled in any potion of t. Western States. ..The great labor and' apense of traindiforfation to .rn'ariet fot; merly lessoned the value of fands in the Virginian portion ofthis-valley, but now a branch of the B'altimo're and Ohio Rilly way o'ere a ready conveyance ror: aif its ich' productions to the MonumentaT Oiij, or. to the canal,- by which it .issent to Georgtowvn and Alexandris ; while the immense mines' of iron a'n~I eal in the' mouniain's near Cumberlaind already be gin to pour their treasures into these cities by the same conveyances. The o-e is rich, and the bituminous coai is saidl to eqfial the finest specimeus in Eogland. .From gae .New Orleans Picayane.

Mr. Dorrill was a refugeefrom.. th British army, under Gen. Burgoise, an was, 1797, the leader of a ffnatical sect who pretended to. be possessed :of.super natural powers and armedjwith the power of the Deity, and that it was not in th, power of man to hurt them. Dorrill ani his followers abstained from., eating. Ies) made use,of neither foud nor clothing tha was procured at the expense of life. Any Dorrill assured his followers iftney hai full faith in him they would never die They put of their leather shoes and hay others made of cloth or wood, and lives upon milk and vegetables. One was blacksmith, ant! he procured and used a pai of cloth bellows They discarded. all revelations, excep what Dorrill received, set at dofan:e 'all th laws of man. and were governed in all thei conduct, as he expressed it, -by the light c nature.' Meetings were held once a weel at which their worship principally cousiste in eating, drinking, singing, Fiddling an dancing and hearing lectures from Dorril who was well qualified for that purpost They had a covenant, by which they place a farge share of tlieir,property itt -commo stock, and thme .blacksmith became thei treasurer. Ini a short time Dor rill collecte a large society, amotng whom' mere sgm very respectable families in the iowns< Leyden and Bernardstnn, Massaphtusetti people went from all the neighborintg towm to hear and see all the mnarvellous doings< .Dorr'ill and his associ~ttes.

When Dorrill camne to his doc trine of' mysterious powers, he had sooner uttered the words 'no arm eau hui iny flesh,' than- Fosterarose, indignant his blasphemy, and knocked Dorrill dows with his fst. .Dorrill, aff'righted,and almot senseless, attempted to rise, when he 're dived a second' blow, at which he' e-ie for mercy.
