FLING out the nation's stripes and stars The glorious standard of the Iree , The banner borne through Freedom's wars, The hallowe'd gem of Liberty ; On mountain top, in valley deep, Wherever dwell the free and brave, Wherever Freedom's martyr's sleep, Columbia's flag must freely wave. Raise high the bright, auspicious flag, From every height and lonely glen; In forest dell, on jutting srag, Afar among the haunts of men. That sparkling banner, wildly flung, Shall-freely wave o'er land and sea; And Freedom's anthem,sneetly sung, Shall swell our country's jubilee. 0 ! let the world that flag behold That emblem of the brave and free; The brightest crown of streaming gold, That decks the goddess Liberty. Spread out its folds till heaven's dome Reverberates the holy sound, That all oppress'd have fond a home On Freedom's consecrated ground. Unfurl that spangled flag of war3, And let it floatulong the skies, Until a freetnan's bleeding scars Shall bid ag. angry.naionrise,. - Then let its tints, its gorgeous folds, Bedazzle hosts'in battle driven, Till victory's eagle proudly holds The glittering ensign up to heaven. Fling out our country's banner wide, Our emblematic, starry gem; Our Union never shall divide While floats that silken diadem. Year after year its brilliant stars Shall indicate the strength of all; Let all beware of civil wars, That curse of monarchs-Freedom's fall. To a Flower; Child of the spring! fair opening flower! I love thine early bloom; To snatch thee from you shelt'ring bower - Let no-rude hand presume. Yet, protected from the blast, Thy leaves in beauty blow; - Ah!-soon thy halcyon days are past, Stern winter lays thee low. But when revolves the varying year, And-sleeps the wasting storm, Returning life again shall cheer Thy renovated form. When-natut e's rougher skies arc fled, Then clothed in loveliest line. Again thou'lt lift thy gentle head, And drink the vernal dew. ANTrOL~OGT. How -rO Dr5isAN ENst.-lt is said - that bees-and- wap will not sting a per son whose skin is imbued with honey. Hencethose who are much exposed to the venom ofghese little creatures, when they have occasion to hive bees, or to take a nest of wvasps.. smear their faces and hands with honey,. which is found to be the best preservative; when we are arugmyed with insult and persecution, from perverse aind malignant men, the best defence against their venom is to have the spirit bathed ini honey. Let every part be saturated with meekness, gentleness, forbearance, and patience; and the most spiteful enemy will be disappointed in his endeavors to infiet a sting. We shall remain uninjured, while his venom returns to corrodo his own malignant bosom;. or what is far bet ter. the houey with which he comes in com:.ct will neutralize his gall; the coals of forgiving love will dissolve his hatred, '~and the good returned for evil, will over comes evil with goodi. In one of the counties of Kentucky, some of the voters have uaddressed a series of questions to one of their caididates for the legislature, among which are the follow ing: * Are you in favor of the next var? Do you believe the Irish came over ini the same boat wit hi Noah ? Do you believe that Eve's eating the * forbidden fruit caused- the knot in-a mn's neck cal-led 'Adanr's apple?' Are you an gradual imaginationist ?' * Do you 'lignor ?' CUBA AND ITS RESOURCES. This Island, one of the earliest discove ries of the great admiral, has been known to Europe sinco 1892, and borne succes sively the names of Juana, Fernandina. Santiago, and Ave Maria, and has found refuge from this confusion of titles in the aboriginal appellation. The most wester ly of the Autilles, it equals in area that of all the other West Indies together, and is one of the large islands which approaches nearest the North American continent, one hendred and thirty miles, from which, an eminent Cuban naturalist maintains, by some great convulsion of nature, at no ve ry remote day, it has been separated. The length of the island, which extends east and west, from the 74 deg. to 85 cleg. west of Greenwich, is about six hundred miles, and its average breadth is about one hundred-between the 20th and 25th par. allels of north latitude. It is blessed with the prodigal fertility of tropical climates, whilsthe clevation of its mountains per mits tl.e productions of colder climates to thrive. This lofty range of mountains, extending from Cape San Antonio to the Punta de .Alaysi. divides the island into two equal portions, and on its declivities and in its valleys are regions as fertile and as healthful as any in the world. Rising to the height of 8,500 feet, i: contains the sources of various streams which abound with peculiar and delicious fish, and bring down no inconsiderable portion of gold lust, once esteemed of importance, but which now is neglected because the labor necessary to collect it, if expended in the ultivation of the soil, would yield thrice he return. The mountains also abound n other mineral wealth, among which are .opper, iron and the magnetic stone. Sil ver is also found. The most valuable of hese mines, however, are those of copper, wvhich, since tlip completion of a portion >f an elaborate system of railroads, one hundred and ninety-ave miles of which are now in operation, have proved most profi tatile invest ments. Principally in the hands >f foreign capitalists, they employ many thousand miners, the wants of whom pro vide, for the small planters, that greatest of all protections and encoumagcmonts, a home market. Marble and coal are also known to ew ist in inexhaustible quantities, and the value.of the latter is daily becoming more apparent, from the rapid consumption of wood by the immense c:ucarias or sugar estates of the Island. This coal, exceed ingly bituminotks, is-gyiLeay ~" - f thgeati asphaltum' beds' ' more than one of-the Antilles, evince them selves in the lakes of mineral tar. It is now employed in the gas works of the city of Havana, and has been found of great purity and good quality. The Island abounds in magnificent har bors, one of which, that of Haana named, tradition says, from an Indian god less, a statue of whom is placed over more than one of the gates of the city, is probably the best in the worl.!h With a narrow en;rance, expanding into a magni ficent bay, it is capable of enclosing the navy of the worlid, and from the earliest day has been so carefully fortified as to be considered impregnable. Neither history nor scrutiny susta'n this idea, for, in the middle of the eighteenth century, an ex pedition, under the orders of the British Admiral Vernon, composed of a small force t f royal marines and a few regiments of colonial troops, lauded a few miles be low the city, all the defences of which, including the Moro. it carried without unu sual difficulty. The new artof war, with its immense betteries, steam and rockets, would certainly reduce the place to neces sity in a very short time. Matanzas, Trini dad, Sant lago, Cientuegos, and Puerto Escondtdo, are also excellent harbors, with great nttuttral facilities for improvements and fortifications. The climuate is, when we consider the latitude, salubrio~us, the year being divided into a dry and a wet seatson. The warm est portioti of the 3year is July and August, when the mean temperaturo of each day is about 840 Fahrenheit. The coldest is in Decembet, w~heni thte mercuiry ranges at about 500, except wvhen the wind, known as el nortc, blo~s, during wvhich the instru ment shows a rapid declension., So fertile a soil is not known to exist in any other portion of the globe. It has beetn knownu to produce three crops a year, and in ordinary seasons two mnay be relied on. Tho profusion of its flora, the variety of its forests, are unsurpassed; while the multitude of its climbing shrubs give alux - urious richness to its scenery, which con tributes to tmake it one of the most fascina Lting countries in the wvorld. Nowhere is life so easily supported, and is mart so deli cately nut-tured. In addition to the plan tain,. the yuca, of t wo varietiest the potato, yam. Indian corn, rice, melans, chesnut, ncoanut, pineapple, amana or custard apple, nmdlar, hamnamna. orange, letnon, shadlock, and'linme, abound. The growth of the forests comptrise the mahogany tree, cedar, ligntumnvitte, various kintds of ebony, thie nojble painm tree, and numerous woods ror builditig. On this islatnd, capable of supporting in ipulence a population equal to that of Spain, are strewn less than a million and a half of men, of which six or sevan lhun Jred thousand are whlite, two hutndred housamnd free negrues, munlattoes and zam tea, while thte rest are slaves. It is sup nosed thtat but two-fifths of the island is :tiltivated, the rest being wilderness, uniii wabited and despoiled, by ruthless Spantish avarice, of the glmtinus fot esm mirees, which struc!. the end'y navigatotr w ith so itotch amtlZemetotlt. *Thc eli~fhir rics of t lhe island result front its exports, which consist of sugar, coffee, tobacco, wax, cocoa, molasses, honey. rum, maize, &c. The first of these is infinitely the most important, and is probably the only one which is regularly increasing, in spite of the changeable seasons, hurt icanes, and the immense direct and indirect taxa tion to which the planters are subjected. The great increase may he estimated from the fact in 1842, 617.648 boxes were ex ported, and in 1847, 1.274.811. The ex ports for the last fiscal year, ending with November. were 1,210,917. Of other ar ticles during the same time. were exported 708,9 11 arrobas (25 lbs.) of coffee, 205,559 hogsheads of molasses, 11,909 pipes of rum, 4;647,737 pounds of tobacco, 141.239 boxes (thousinds) of segars, and 561,826 quintals of copper ore. The cultivation of coffee has., nearly been destroyed. Nothing shows the great decline of the trade more than the fact that, in 1537, 2,133,567 arrobas were exported, while in 1848 there were only 708,491. The consequence is, that a great portion of the cafetal are now abandoned, and the land appropriated to grazing, sugar es iates, or rice plantations. The tobacco crop rapidly increases, and will as long as the passion for Havana and Principe se gars shall last. The plant is peculiarly different from our own, and the soil is able always to bring two crops per an numa. In 1842 the crop was 5.942,833 lbs.; in 1847 it rose to more than 9,000,000. That of 1848 was somewhat diminished by a season unusually unpropitions, and by hurricanes. The number of arrivals during 18.17, at its ports. was 3740, and -he number of clearances 3346. The amount of Ameri can tonnage employed in trade with it is 17G.773 tons. Such are the resources of Cuba, and from them it is customary to conclude that the Island has enjoyed a paternal govern inent, and enlightened care from the crown of Spain. Such is not, however, the case; for, of all countries in the world, it is prob. ably the most and worst governed. All power in the hands of two officers, the Captain General, civil anl military gov ernor, and the Intendente, responsible di reetly to the Spanish crown, who has charge of the fiscal nfitirs and of commerce -crowds of greedy Spaniards in every employment; an army of 20.00 men quar tered on a population of 1,500,000; vexa pious taxes, infringements on natural right, monopolies of everything inblushing bri bery, flagronorrr Ito i n ge,an ta sytm beinod' that of England in the times of the Tu dors, are its principal features. Rigid censorship of the press, a want of all pro vision for education, and a degraded and worthless nobility, arrest the attention of every strenger, and make him wonder how any race, intel igerit as the Cuban Creoles. can remain quiet and see their beautiful island doing nothing for itself, and wasting its treasures upon a people which prize it only as a means of support ing sloth and want of energy. This wretched state of affairs points to a reac tion, but when it comes, Cuba. with her population of 1,500.000, and her immense, res'iurces, must witger own freedom, or, if she do nor, will deserve to be enslaved. A VALUABLE INVENTION. CoTToNs-TALK CUTTER. From the Eutaw (Ala.) Whig, we take the subjoined notice of a new and vala ble invention, to which we would call the attention of our planters: If the merits of the machine be not exaggerated, it will in leed entitle the inventot to the gratitude of the Agricultural community. The Eutaw paper says: The Rev. Fields Bradshaw, of Clinton, Alabama, has invented a machine for cut tfng cotton stalks. WVe have been showtn ihe model, atnd doi not doubt of the prae tical success. It Itas or will sootn be for. warded to WVashingtson for the purpose of obtaining a patent. It cantuot fail. (if it answers the design uf the inventor, and of thtat we have no doubt,)to be of incalculable advatttage to he Southern planter, in preparing his lands, not only for the cultivation of that staple, but fitretmall grain. TIhis machine wvill be found by the planter, when tride, to be a great labor-saver. May our re verend frientd reap a rich harvest from thtis production of his intventivo genius. And may his success stimulate Southern men to new inventions, that will lie applicable Inolhe pursuits of their particular section of our vast and advancing nation. This machine wilt do the work of twelve bands or more, and the work will be in~ ice as well done; one machitne therefore with ane hand to mnge it, and one or two mules or horses to drtaw it, will be worth nnit than twenty-four hands. Also this mtachinte will cut down the cotton stalks whtilst green, andt as it cuts them off at he ground or near to it the cotton fields may lhe prepared fort sowing smnall. grain in thte t all or winter months, and the stalkt will be out of the wauy, in reaping the same. Otne of the greatest advantages of this machine, consists in its cutting the stalks anid limbs intosall piieces, pteparing them to be ploughied in. and thuts rnot oinly be tint of the wa5, but also enrich the land. 'lTtis machine htas been so far- tried as to place its success beyond doubt. Its con struction its simple. and the cost vecry lit ito compared to-its yaluc.

THE BA K-ANOTHER FALLACY But scgher fallacy which led to the es stlishm of this institution was, that as imes wer? hrard and money scarce, a Bank must he ceated to furnish a circulating medium. - ,The crdtion of the Bank may have afforded sane relief to many persons di rectly. andzItidirectly to many more. But the notionha necessity for increasing the eirculatin .-melium is entirely erroneous. Under a cot dition of things, the circulation in every community will bear a certain iatural relation to the business to be trans 'cted; andili passess legislative sagacity to iotermino;tbat relation: and it has invaria bly been..ound that, when governments have undettaken to prescribe that relation, mischief hiasensued. Inflation in all bran uhes of lisiness is the uniform result. High nomnpil prices for every thing, that for a time llelude all parties with the sem blance-of rosperity only to make them reel with greater poignancy the bitterness of disappoiattmeht-a condition of things very advantageous to those who have time and Opportunity and sag~tcity enough to profit brihe blunders of others, but die sstrous to~The community at large. The fect is thathle amount of circulating medi um requirid by each community will be regulated by the laws of trade; laws more potent thean -any legislative enactments. Legiilative enactments can onlyalfect the nominal 'amnount; they cannot determine she real value of the currency. And it would he doe as sensible to try to regu late the-aggregate value of the corn, wine, titd oil topb used, as to fix that of the :itculating.'medium. The whole notion )elongs to the economy of the sixteenth :entury, and is quite unworthy the- con idcrationof grown men of the nineteeth. It is o part of the duty of government to urnish a circulat-ing medium; it does all hat it calegitimately do when it coins money and regulate the value thereof, ust as it determines upon the weights and neasureeby which articles may be sold. It fixes thus the standard for exchanges, nd thus promotes convenience and equity n commdreial transactions. It mayseem puerile at this time of day :o be making these statements which be ong to tho.hirn book of economical sci mnce; hutss their truth is practically de aied by, thbfriends of the recharter.at the ,resent dai. asiit'*as .by the advdcatetof ;io-elt 'tot an'yea fitgod4ei~i be indulged in a repetition of the A, B, C. This idea of its being a pat t of the duty yf the State Government to furnish a cur rency is of a piece with the notion so much nsisted on eight or ten years ago, that it wvas indispensable to the commerce of the States that the Government of the States should furnish a means of efTcting ex 2hanges; and the friends of the United States Bank rang the changes upon it with such perseverance, that even the most sceptical on the other side were almost in clined to believe that there must be some hing in it. Thanks to the triumph of the Democratic principles, evet the Whigs the decided, if no' the ultra) must begin to see that there is nothing in it. In the United States Bank controversy the true position was taken by the people )f this State. It was in substance that the United States Government was the agent of the States for certain purposes only. That as it could not of right he a thip owner, (excepting ships for defence,) r merchant, or agriculturist, or manufac urer, or engage in any of the industrial pursuits of the people, so it conld not of right bank or engage in the business of xchanges; that when it had "coined nou =y and regulated the value thereof and of oreign coin," it had performed all the rinctionis required of it by the Constitu ion in this relation ; that doing tnore than ithis was acting without lawful warrant, aind necessarily tended to swverve from their path of dutty the servatnts of the people-; that it inevitably led to a violatint of. that cardinal rule of the Constitution whiich it enoncees commercial preferences 1o one section (port) over another. For rnanifustly, according to all just rules of in~. ierpretation, the Government cannot con. citutionally do that indirectly whbich it is rorbidden to do directly. This sanme piositton we tatke against the Bank of the State. If it was a strong po siti against the Bank of the U. States, 1: is stronger against the Bank of the State. Z.

THE PRAYING SALIO BOY. The Cornelia was a good ship, (said one of the West India chaplains of the American Seaman's Friend Society) bui at one time we reared that she was on he: last voyage. We were but a few days out fron New-York, when a severe storm of five day's continuance over took us. I must tell you of a feat of a Connecti. cut sailor boy'at the heighth of the storm. He was literally a boy, and far better fit. ted for thumbing Webstet's Spelling Book than furling a sail in a storm. But his mother wasa widow. and where could the boy cearn a living for himself and mother better than at sea?! The ship was rolling fearfully.- Some of the rigging got foul at the main-mass head, and it was ne cessary that some one should go up and rectify it. It was a perilous job. I was standing near the mate and heared him order that boy to do it ! He lifted his cap and glanced at the swinging mast, the boiling, wrathful seas, and at the steady determined countenance of the mate. He hesitated in silence a moment, then rush. ing across the deck, he pitched 'down into the forecastle. Perhaps he was gone two minutes, when he returned, laid his hands on the ratlins, and went up with a will. My eyes followed him till my head was dizzy, when I turned and re, nonstrated with the mate for sending the boy aloft. He coild not come down alive! "Why did you send ? "I did it," replied the mate, "to save life. We've sometimes lost men over-board, but never a boy... See how he holds like a squirrel. He is more careful; he'll come down safe I h-o-p-e." Again I looked till a tear dimmed my eye, and I was compelled to turn away, expecting'every moment to catch a glimpse of his last fall. In about fifteen or twenty minutes'he came down and straightened himself up with the conscious pride of having per. formed a manly act, he walked aft with a smile on his countenance. In the course of the day, I took occa sion to speak to him, and asked him why he hesitated when ordered aloft? "I went sir." said the boy, to pray.' "'Do you play?" "Yes sir; I thought. that I may not come down alive and I went to cotn mit my soul to God." "Where did- you learn to pray ?" "At home; my riother wanted me to go to the Sabath School, and my teacher urged- me to pray to God to keep me; .d Ido.' 'What wat that testament, which my teacher gave me.- I thoughI if I did perish. I would have the word of God close to my heart." RASso0s OR LEARNcTNG' TO Stro." The celebrated Wm. Byrd, anthor el "Non nohis Domine," gave the following very forcible reasons for learning to sing, in a scarce work, published in 1598, en titled, "Psalms, Sonnets, and Songs of Sadness and Pietie:" First, It is a knowledge easitle taught and quickly learned where there is a good master and apt scholar. Secondly. The exercise of singing is de' tful to nature, and good to preserve the health of man. Thirdly. It doth strengthen all parts of the heart, and doth open the pipes. Fourthly. It is a singular good remedie for a stuttering and' stammering in the speech. Fifthly. It is-the best means to preserve a perfect pronunciation, and to make a good orator. Sixthly. It is the only way to know "hen nat uro hath bestowed' a ;oot voice, which gift is so rare that there is not one amongst a thousand that hath it; and ir maty that excellent gift is lost because they want an art to express nature. Seventhly. There is not an~y music ol instruments whatsover, compar'able to' thai which is made of men's voices, wvhcn tha1 voices are good, and that same well sorted antl ordered. Eightly. The better the voice, is, the tmeeter it is to htonor and serve God there with; and the voice of man is chicily to be employed to that end." TnE PATENT DECEPTIVE IIEN's N~sTv -This is one the most in~genioos contri vanccs of the age, and is the invention ol a regular down east Yankee. The desigri is to deceive poultry ittto the speedy and liberal laying of eggs, and which is ac, complished by a pecnliar construction al te tmachine.
