STROME, * Adin'rs. A,,g,,t 1, - 2. - From the Hamburg Republican. HAMBJRG-HER PROSPECTS, &c. For some dime past it hans been our1lot to hear our Town traduced by some. and seemingly famented over by others. It has from some cause. as 'baseless as a vision" heen asserted by those whosg wish was perhaps farther to the thought. that Hamburg was going down hill, and was destined, at no disdant day; to relinquish fpoissession to the original propriitors. the "Bull frog"-but we opine that as Duick energy rousted the original croakers there will lie found enough of the same ingre.di, eot to thwart the designs of those who now hypocritically mourn at the rare that qtey seem to imagIne awaits the Town. We notice that the Aiken correspondent of the Charleston Ntws. in a long and veFy interesing commtrnutnicaRtion. speakinig of hlamburg and its ruiler, makes the to1 lowing remarks "iBt alas, Hamburg does not promise to fulfil the hope or follow up rhe energy and despartc.h which presided at her birth. The Augusta Canal has al ready dirawn off a considerable" portion of her cotton trade, and the Columbia Rail roads to Greenville and Charlotte will in a Few years, perhaps, place her anong tte enterprises that were but are not." Now we have no disposition to attribute unkina moti.-es to the writer of the Necs, but that lie is laboring under the same kind of ma nomonia that. pervades many others, is quaite apparent. We therefore, froi the best of motives, take this matter in hand, and intend trying to put right all whom it may eoncern, by glancing very concisely at the prospects of our Town. It is true, .the business rea tures of I lamburg presents no very e.ciling views, but that she-is in a more healthy, an- her Merchants in a inore prosperous condition than they have been for years, we believe true. The an unal receipts of country produce is such as to show to every business- man that our assertion cannot be controverted. What other town in this Union can make such a 'howing with the same population-the entire numtrber.. white and black, being about 1200. Our receipts of Cotton is f'rom sixty five ta seventy thousands bales per anutim ; Flour, twelve to fifteei hurt. died barrels; Bacon, one hunidred andi seventy five to two hundred uhouqand pounds, wilth a large amount of Lard. Beeswax. Tillow, ,eathers, andl many otler articles of minor importance. The ainont of rerchandise sold corresponds to these heavy receipts - of . .i ~-dr5tT takerenera11isness-i6 town ihat ptght to support a population of four or live thousand iistead of twelve hundred. The fart is, we want more mercharts, [to. sittes;s men with capital, and otur totvn is ho'od to increase in population and wealth. As fur the Auensta Catal it has taken from us perhatps some ten thousard hales of Cotton, but that is only tempora, rv, tir we lonok frtward to an apipropriation at rite next session rif our Legislature that nill eruatie i to clear ott the River be tween ftur whnrves and tine head of this canal. so ;as to bring back all tlhiq Cotton: and as for the Greenville and Charlotte Railiourds the doaeer. there is more in in. azinraiion than reality. The advantangs, we possess from rttr location, pats it quite out of the power of Croluibia to compete with us in the prices of heavy goods or in the rates pai-l for produce. This our 'lanters generally know, and those who do not have only t6 took at the extreme low rates of freight on the River to lie con. vitteed. It is no, uncomnion thing for heavy goods to be laid down from Boston or New York to Hamburg for less fieight than they woild co'rt from Charleston to Columbia- There is no delay here in the shipment of prodaic. as the Railroad and BRoats are always in cotmipetitiotn, and the rate of freight kept dmwn tri a point that is never dreamend of in Cukiai~r or other points wh'lere comtrpetiiiont does' not exist. It i.t only necess,ary for those iterested to rake these 'things into conrsirderation to per celie ihat Habrt huhin asdo a i-ock, stands nil abigo thse ond G'orld,~ where her water adivantages will always protect her fromt~ pettj Canals or Railroads on the tho~ufitaints.

TEXT.-- Fret not thy giziard." My -learers:-Fortitude, patience, an perseverance, are the only teamiorses ca pable of dragging the lurnbering car c man's hopes through the marsh of misful tune. Fretting. flinchiag, cuising, swearing can no more extricate one fror difficul:y than a silly shad can ,release il self from the fisherman's net by flappin and flot'ndering. When a man finds him self in the midst of thlorns and briars . trouble, the onlj way for him is to stel dautiously and feel his road through theri with the tomost care ; but if he fret, fruste and bluster, ho is sure to effect nothin; more than larcrate his bosom and tear hi trousers. When lie perceives that hi feelings are beginning'to ferment, throettl irritation, he ought to keep a smal! air hole open to his heart. not only to adini the pure oxygen of reason, but also to al low the gas of excitement to escape h; degrees-else he might burst his barrel o forbearance, and lose in a motnent sot of the sweetest and best of life's cider. My friends-when your cobweb fabrics of anticipation are swept away by th storms of ill fortune, there is no more usc in fretting your gizzards, about it that there is in a young female victim of seduc tion trying to stick the fragments of virtue together with tears of repentance. To fre and chafe about trifles, like a tenderschno boy when'first initiated into the mysteries of a flannel shirt, is as nonsensical as it is useless. Maintain your ground manfully against the assaults of petty ills, nod it) due time you will not heed them half as muclh as the buzz of an October musquitto ' oth. erwise you will proba'ly learn by experi. ence that there is such thing as rubbing a pimple till you produce an ulcer, Itn the hour of adversity, for assistance call upon Fortitude-hat hold nymph of the rock, whose dauntless spirit hears the heat ing stortn and bitter winds that howl around her-whose breast braves the burst. ing waves and who bears the dred thunder with a soul as unshaken as a carpet in a la wyer's office. Yes. my friends, jnstead offretting your gizz:ards when a boding cloud' s iris tle horizon of your hopes. you ought to have philosophy about you suffi. cienti to know that, although the coming shower may wei your jackets, it renders the earth fruitful, and bountifully contri i -mhs ei Ptayhfn-%Neas ItC earout ot nea vet into tle regions of darkness and wo, was too much of a man to whine and fret at his fa'te. He bore it like a hero, and consoled himself with tho teflection that it were "tetter to reign in hell than to serve ir heaven." Exercise patience, and the thick masts of misf ortune that bedim your future prnspects will disperse the sobner; push ahead with perseverance. unmindful of tri fling antioyntiCes, and every bud in your bosoms that threatets to disclose a thistle. will bloom a rose; but this worrying and fretting when circumstances clash with one's fond desires, is like brushing a heavet againtt the nap-the more you attempt to smooth it the rougher it grows. Mv dear friends-1 am almost induced to believe that some people. instead of being supplied with hearts, have nothing but gzizards filled with grit and gravel. They appear to have just dined upon pebbles and irdn fillings, and alvays lao. ring under the infl'nence of indigestion. Nothing goes right with them-everything is wrong. The tilk of mercy souts upo1 their stomaches-they turn up their noses at the sweets or salvation-they spit in the tand of charity-spurn friendly solicitude -and care no more for soft soap and sym. pathy than a dog does for a dollar. Al they wish is to be allowed thme privilege o fretting. ttndisturbed by friend or foe-un checked by fear, unawayed by favor They fret for fear the mtorrow may not be brighter that) goldet to.-day ; they fret be cause others are cheerful and contented with their lots;, and -they oftentimes fre merely becaise they can find nothintg o itnportance to fret atbout. Let therri gc on fretting till they have arrifed at the ema of life's journey, atnd I am inclined tthinii thtey will eveutually fitnd that they havi fretted to rro purpFlose There is tno daubi but they would lIasd fault writh tlie arrange ments of heaven,. were they allowed t< ctnter.-and thus go on fret ting from ever lastinag to everlas'ting. As for me, I puit ni with the beatings antd tumbligs of this mor tal existetnce as quietly as a feather-bed attd I trust that most of you tmy, wvorthj hea'rers, are blest, with the same happ3 d isposit ion..

DissuL1o1to IT0 THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.--T Baltimore Republican says: The Whig press 19 re-publishiog, with great gusto.. ome or the wild and amuiaing sketches of Jhn Van Buren, in which rhe ' foresaid sta' 'and sober genman proclaims the dissolutid of the Demorratic p::rty. Now. as it )s admitted by all honest men r that the Wh a party was dissolved by an act of feo de e.- perpetrated in cald blood at the Phil elphia Slaughier House,.if Mr. John Vj' Buren and his endorsers are to be hel Ved, there is noparly exis ting in the .

The New Orleans Courier well retnarks that since the commencement of our national exis tene. there has been no perind of twelve months in which so imany wonderful events transpired as we have witnessed in the year 1849. Only one half of it has elaps ed. atid those events are of a deeply calamitous nature. The cholera apread over the country from the Rio Grande to the Hudson; the inotdation at Neiv Orleans; the tremendous riots at New York; the conflagration at St. Louis; the uuttstual unmber of murder and crimes of every description. These are some of the chief misfortunes which ias befallen the Americen people itt the- lapse of the last six tmonths. What is to come next is* known.otly to Him who ruleth the destiny of nations. Ari AFFTLCTFD FAMtLY.-The family or Dr. Leke Hassert, Grand Scribe of the Sons of Temperance, residling in Hudson street, have suffered mosiseverely from the unrelenting pastilence. On Tuesday night, his daughter. a little girl between two and three years of age, was the first victim. Mrs H assert, who was in appar ently good health, wvas attakced soon after the death of het dlaughter, and died at 11, o'clock on Wednesday moraine. His nepha ., a younr man 15 years old, died last night. At 9 o'clock this morning his only son, 10 years of age dieil. The re mains of the first three were takeni to Hackensack this morning for interment, wthere the funeral of the soit will take place this aftern'otiAN. Y. Tribune, Atug. 2. P'oLAs.-The London Quarterly Re view fur January, in an article Ott Anstria and Germany, has the follo wing allusion to the activity and energy of the country man of Kosciuske in the -late revolution ary movement in Europe! "The Pote, have playedl a leading party in all the insurrections in the capitals of IEurope. They have, in fas't, become the Free Corps of Democracy, the Knights Errant of Rievolutionf., and like the companies of adventure inT the fourteenth century. they proffer their assistance in: every quaar ter where there is a prospect of success ful insurrection agains: monarchical au thority." flow, jr.'-says:--l believe the simple honesty..the naked truth, pure virture, anid a straight op ati down way of dealing with the world, have as much adyanmage overwvied. trick. and stralagem, iinthe..long run, as a gotid square trotting horse has over. pacing pottey, or a racer that goes a mile or two like mischief, and is done for the rest ofl'the jhurney."

The gcnilemaip whom she addressed had studiously refrained, during the even'ing, from drinking any of the costly wine, pre. paied fnr the guests. But finding himself the object of geteral aitenion-for when I the bride spoke every eye was upon him -he colored. starnredi a few indistinct woirds, totkk the glass, and bo*ing grace fully drank long life and happiness to the biide. *1- told you I hould succeed." said the young and happy creature, her e3'es spark ling with triumph, as shie retired into the circle of bridesimaids, 1I knew Col. War, ren would not 'refuse tme. What a pity he has got such puritanical notions in his head.- He used to lse-loremost with a hap py allusion or eloquent sentiment when the r.ine circulated." No one was inere to contradict this joy. ons hot thouhtiless creature, or to tell her that Colonel Warrqn's indulgence in wine nearly proved his ruin. He had been ab sent frost hIs nativerity for siime years, during nhich period he had formed a reso lution not to drink, in .conseqjuence of a convictioti of his own Weakness. On his return, his old associates in vnin persuaded hin to alter his deterr'ination. Oa vari ous feseivo ocensions tltpy had endeavored to induce him to join them in pledging each other, but his answer Isid..alvays been the satne. This was the first time. since his reurn. th;rt wine had been intro duced'in the presence of ladies. It was resolved to try- whether the inflornce of the sex would not break a resolution which more than one ft in. be a reproach on hitnself, How the scheme. succeede4 we have seen. No pentt can nilequately describe ihe emo tions of Col.. Warren .duri g, the moment e hesifated before trki-ig the proffered Mlss from the bride. He was chivalrous to a ftuit in'his demeantor to the sex, and had never been known to refusd a favor asked by a womat. The bride was the daughter of his early friend, a cherished treasure, whoren ie had many a time dan dl.ed on his knee, and whom he had never done any thing to slight or pain. lie stood as'we have, irresolute for a moment, hesi taIing between fears for the result,. and a didike to disoblige his favoritedao --,her Little did the young bride think of the dreadful issue tf her fempting words and antiles. Litile did site (ireain that the han kering love for wine which had once redt. ced her victim to the virge of confirmed inebriacy. would awake again at the taste of that glass and rage with more violence than ever. Young, happy and thought lees. she looked only at the present triumph without cnosiderina the restilt. How then was she surprised to hear, a few months after her marringe, that Col. Warrep had become ;tn inebiate-that he rarely retired to bied unless in a stite of intoxication. and that in conseqience his fine person was beconsing divfigured, and his large fortune wasitig away. Site shddered, but s:ill did not tItink of. her own agency in the matter, and. when uext she met him, with the privilege of youtih and beauty, ventured to plead with him on the subject. 'Madai,"said, he in reply, aid the tmelancholy and somewhat sierri tone in which he spoke never lefi her memory, "it is too late! I was once as I atm now-I rallied, took a resolption never to drink again-L broke rhat resolution, you know how, and when; and now I om a hopeless inebriate." Hie turned attd left her presettee. Her eyes were, opened, . Oh. bitterly did, shQ reproach herself foar having spioletn those fatal words. Fur nights she could cot sleep. She mought again anti again to see her victim, hut lie shtutnned her~ presense. They never tmet again but once. .Reader! wvould yotn know hoiw'! Sotme years after, on a cold, btleak morn ing in January.-a travelling sleigh, drawn by t wo splendid hnorses, nwas tlishing along the turnpike het seen Norrissowns attd Phil adelphtia. TI'iere had beetn a sntow storm dttring the night,' and flbtkes lay piled ngainst the fences andl banaks, where they had been driven by the ice 'vinds whi'ch swept down frinm the hills bevon'd the Schtiylkill. Th'e sky was still overcast the win.l yet rageid vitlently, and it was intensecly coiil. Few scenes cani be mtoru de~nlate. H'ouses, barnes. trees, and hay ricks, wvere covered wvith snow,- and the cattle cowerin~g in the shed's,seetmed every wvhere to hteseech the-sky in vain. As the sleight, withs its merry bells, whirled down the long hill thist leads to Manayung turn pike, the horses suddenly shield., nearly precipitating the vehicle .itnto an O'ppodite snow ban~k. A ladly slightly screamredl ands loo~ked oti ii ,alarm from the furs that enveloped her ;. hut seeitng no qanise' for danger, s'he was about to or~ler the driver inoproceed, whetn her little tiny,. pointing to the ohject whtich hadl startled- the horses, said,-1othser, n'hrat can that' be in the. roadl l surely it is a main's hat ?

"Graciou' hteavsea !" she exclaimed. "cean it bf that' sopip p)ontt wret ch. asfro zen to death hiere ? James," and she turned to thie footman, "go ad see."

The specia tors brearthienly awaited while the ice eakcA were being removed from the -faceg ,for he. laily, was within a short distance of her home, aid thought that perhaps sho might recig-tize ite being. She steppe.4 out of the sleigh and approached he corpse. -Colonel Warret !" she said, ecoming ghasly pale, an d staegering; -Colonet \Varren dying thus. a common drunkard! Olh ! just Heaven this is too mvch." Aid thus the victim and his destroje' met for the last time. It was the once thoughtless bride who now stood above tb6 or'pse. AltFUL ScENE AT AN EXECUTION.

"On arriving at the. gallows, a dartc colud which ind previously arose in the west, over-spread the entire firmanent with its murkey folds, and caused conster nation around. Every.. thing was new i confusion. As tihe thick masses of clouds gathered their folds deeper and deepet overhead; the cowd below partook of thei character ofthe diescriptiv. elqments above.

The women fell into swoons, and. Ahe. men trambled upon them as they hurried to and. fro, frighiened out of their wits. All was con-. fugion and uproar! Tres. faWling.. qp every side-the thunder roaring .over-head, and the li2tlinig. i.n their faces-caused in the crowd a panic never before witnessbd. rhose that were on horses rushed from the place as if Old Nick was after.them.

He thought ovft evety thing he had ever learned even to. 'Thirty days hath Septeqbei,.. April, June nrid.Novenber,' blut all in vain, he could not recollect noth ing that suited the occasion. A suppress. ed titter all over the room admonished him. that he must prnceed with something, and in the agony of desparation he began Know all men by these presens, that l-here hue paused, and looked up to the ceiling 14hile an audible voice in a corner of the room was heard to say: lie is drawing a deed to i tract of and. and .they al. laughea..
