Among the sentiments of'ered at the recent Masonic Festival in Hartford, was the following : "Our guests from the North, the South, the East and the West of our beloved Union. We have met you on the level, and we will part upon the aguare! We meet upon the level and part upon the square What words of precious meaning those words Masonic are! Come, let us contemplate them-they are worthy of a thought, With the highest and the lowest and the rarest they are fraught. We meet upon the level, though from every sta tion come, The king from out his palace, the poor man from his home, For one must leave his diadem outside the Nla son's door, Aid the other finds his true respect upon the checkered floor. We part upon the square,-the whole world must have its due, We mingle with its multitude, a cold, unfriendly crew; But the influence of our gathering in memory is green, And we long upon the *level to renew the happy scene. There's a world where all are equal; we are hur rying towards it fast, We shall mieet upon the level there, when the gates of death are past, We shall stand before the Orient, and our Master will be there To try the blocks we offer with his own unerring square. We shall meet upon the level there, but never hence depart; There's a muansion-'tis all ready for each trusting faithful heart, There's a 'Mansion, and a welcome. and a multi tude is there, Who have met upon the level and been tried - upon the square. Let us meet upon the level then, while laboring patient here, Let us meet and let us labor, though labor be se vere; Already in the Western sky the signs bid us pre pare To gather up our working tools and be tried upon the squaie. Hands round, ye faithful Masons all, the brig'ht I fraternal eliiin; We part upon the square below to meet.in heaven again; Oh ! what words of precioits meaning tho.'e words Masonic are "We meet upon the level and we pait upon the square!" Fromn the Waverly Magazine. CHIARLEY BEEN. BY LOArs r. C.YD:. Charicy Ieen is a bachelor yet-ani why has his heart never beaten with love ? ha1, he never felt as though heaven beanedl upon hint when gazing in some face ? lIas he never ,eenl a pair of fund eyes raised trustingly it, his ? has he never felt a love pressure of the hand . or listened in blessed happiness to a loving answer to his vows? Alh ! yes, lhe has seen and felt and heard all this. vet Charley Reen is a b~achelor still. IHis is a strange stoty, yet true, of blighted - hopes andI a withered heart, and a woman's in constatncy. When C'harley first grew to man's estaiteand stepped out in t'he cold, wide worl. to fight his way through life, lhe found himself a penntyless youth with nmeither friends nor advikers. li s I'ather, a poor' old mian, still lived only to lhe a burden to him. vet Charley loved his father de votedly--loved hinm with all that intensity that only tihose hearts feel which htave but one to love. And many a time did Cimrtey deny him self the actual n'eeessarnies of life, that his father might have its luxuries. But industry ever meets a ireward, andi Char ley sought his way in the heartless world. omt frotm the ~cld sh'rlow of wvant into tlse sunshmne of plenty. And still, as his riches camne. lie he stowedi themt with am liberal hand uiltm his ol and crippled fither. l1e feared.,t wisild pain * the old mana to feel like a mtere dependtent, and so, when that baeaumtiful cottage, wI-ere often I have seen him, was bought to be his home. he~ presented it all to his fath!er; aind t e old man grew rich. and Charley still was pioor. Charlev loved his fathier dearly ; b~ut soon lhe begani to'leel there was another who had thcund a place in his heart-.- fair young girl. wvhos-e bldeecves hieamied with seeming~ pityt :tmd trt-tth. and viho 'e noble theie appleared so swee-t ami'I at. gelie tI-it who eeer saw it. was fbrieled I lve it. And .\da Cary pilihtedl lhr truth to iin~. :awil placing her hand ini his. iad fix~ig those soft blue eves on his, she toll hinm ini .-imp~li :mnd earnne.-t truth, when lhe first unfeobled the buren ing thoughts of his heart to her. that, she loved him. 0, how proud lhe wa< of hik beaut:iful love of her' wilvery voice. atnd her witnng w;ays. atnd her l- ving t:~-mst in himit. And so ( h:uley lleent was hetroithed. A little while after his engamgemtent. l.* lpre v'alled ott Ada lto auccompanyit hint to ha fither's.I that the old tman miight tblecom iacqutita itedl withI her. Charlev hwi de-cribted lier int glowinig terms to his iat her, and~ 'dwel t -io long :cwil Ilov . ingly oni her beeeuiy anmi her virtue. andI fth many things which had enwlearte. her I.o himi. that the ol man hade bewohme enrap'tttred wit Ih the description, andi couldl not re-t itn peace till he had seen her. Old Mr. lleen lived mniles away fromtt .\da. so one br-ight niorning C'harley (rew upl :t thIeri door in'oneac of tho~e sweet carrmia;;es thnt. leover-s so mutch ahnire, flor it se-ems to leave tem alone with themiselves. Thlat was a happy ridle and int a jovoust mtood Charley antd his y'outfli love alighted at thle dloor of htis ftJ her's ho use. The oldl mnan gave them a lhearty welcotmte ande greeted thte young creatutre, whot was soont, he thought, to becomte his daughter, wi th a de-l"lht andI pleasure thtat mtadle Chlairley's heart hett with happiness. And all the day theo 'l I mttan petted round Ada, caressitng hter., and list en-intg with the most intense rapture to all htemr remtarks. When dinner was over Chtarley batde Inhtt adieu for a little while atnd hurried 'away. for he was not one even to neglect his duty, 'anI hutsinets demanded his attetioun in a neighiboritng village. SAs lhe left he kissed his hand gaily to Ada, and promnvised her he would soon return-in a few hours at most. Wihen Charley was out of sight old Mr. Rear led her out on tie shady lawn before the lovely cottage, and pointed out to her the beautiful scenery. "Is this not a delightful cottage, Ada ?" hte asked. "Ieautiful," she answered, in a half dreaimiy reverie. "Would you not like to live here?" lie que ried, bendin~g down his heat, and looking inqui ringly into her eyes. Charlcy has told me he would live lere,', she answered, with a sweet blush. " Charley !" exclaimed the old man, " why, what has he to do with this cottage ?" Why, does it not belong to him ?i inquired Ada, inl surprise. " No indeed, not a bit of it-Charley is as poor as a church mouse. This is all miine-all," said the old man, drawing himself up. Irndeed," said Ada, thoughtfully. " Ada." said old Ir. leen, bending down to her. and speRking ahnost in a whisper, " if you live here you must give up Charley." " What do you mrcanr " I ani an old man-past fifty, and disease has inade me a cripple; but my heart is young. Do you understand me ?" " No," said she, facing him suddenly, and looking him steadily in the face." " This cottage anrd all these fields are mine," lie continued, "and hould I ever narry, in a few short months iny widow would possess them. I shall live but a little longer." Well," said Ada, inquiringly. " Do you not recollect, Ada, the old saying that 1 it is better to be an old man's darlinrg th'tn a young mIanl's slave ?" " Yes. "And it is true, is it not ?" "Perhaps. Do you think of marrying ?" "If You will. Ada." "11f.1 will ?" " Yes, you. Look, you are about to bcome the wife of a poor young man. with nothing to look orwaird to beyond your life with him. A rich old man offers you his hand-you will he his darling, and when life leaves him, will he the sole mistress of all these beautiful fiele." "I understand now," said Ida, slowly, you wish me to break Charley's heart ind iarry you." No, no-lie is young-a few days will cure iimn of his love-but mrarry ne. Think, think, Ida. vou can live at case I ere." "'What are you thinking of," continued the old imran, after'n pause of a few minutes. during which Ada h:ad reun rined perfectly silent, witi her eves fixed steadfastly on the ground "I was thinking." said she. hlif hlettingly. " what words I could find to express to you how heartilh I detest you anud your oiler. What !" cried ie, " will you not accept ?; " No," replied sire (uietl. " Think, Ada, think.

And on ats..... ay the crinnled old man., who had brought all this sorrow upon the head of his de voted son, also received a letter, and it read thus: " I ai yours-come to ine. Ada." And thc next day Ada was the old man's wife. Yes, Ada was the old man's wife, and Charley, all unconscious or the great wrong that had be'en done him, wended his way, with a heavy heart, to his father's house. Uannounced he went through the doorway, and into the parlor; and as he passed over the threshold he encountered Ada. "A da," he exclaimed, in mingledsurprise and delight, -is it possible this is you?" and lie quickly stepped forward to greet her, but with I a haughty gesture she reitulsed hii, and ans wered, very coldly, a, Yest3,. Reen. it is Possible." Why, .Ada," Charley stammered, as the blood rushed to his face. " what call this iean ? why do you speak so coldly to me? have I of fended you?" - "JDeceit is always an offience, sir." " Deceit. ! have I ever deceived you ?" "Ask yourself, not me." " My conscience is clear ; I do not think I have ever knowingly deceived von in any thing,." answered he, proudly. ' Your conscience is not delicate tien. and does not stop at trilles. Ilowever, it is a iatter of indiflerence to me." she ans.wered, with an air of assumed carelessnesz. Charley was wounded, but stilling lhis feeling-s he thougit to clear up what lie believed to be a mere misunderstnding, and again place Ada and hinself on the saine footing they had been but a little while before. " Ada," lie began, in a sorrowful tone, " you wrong me; I have loved you truly-1 could never stoop to deceive an eneny less still one so dear to me as vou." "Look about you, sir," interrupted Ada. see this cottage and fields-they are your father's-it has been shown to nme, yet you strove to forward your suit with tie by lire tending to be masier of these, while you knew Vou olwn(d nolic of theim.

" Cannot." repeated Charley, in sullrprise. "No, you cannut ;" -he replied, with cold em phasis: after all that has paIrsed between us, 1 do not clioose to have you living in tie house where I ami iistress." " ou are mistress ?" repeated he, in a be wildered inciner. , e answerel, pet ulantly, where I ain iisi:tre-l aIinn idarried. !"da ! exclaimed Charh' "You look startled ; do't a thing for a girl like me to Surely, surely, you ar.

At the municipal elecion of St. Louis-whii was held on the 6th insL.-the question of wh is called in Missouri tbkgradual emancipatic of the slaves was the kne which divided tl parties. The result wq ' a majority in favor IM. Wirner (emancipati ,nist) for mayor, ov Pratt, democrat. The, ote cast for Wimer w only about a hundred l-ss than that cast f both the denocratic an Ame:ican candidat A large number of the mericans, it is state voted for him. This is the way the natter is stated in tl telegraph dispatches. A few days prior to t) election, however, what-are called the "reul. democrats" met in St. Iuis'and passed resoli tions which are as tolloid. They are necessa to an understanding of The condition of partii within that city, if not within the state of Mi souri: Whereas, The pro-slavery party of this Stat calling themselves natioM-1 democrats, by the course in the last session of the legislature, r newed the agitation of the slavery questio: and forced the emancipation question upon tI people; and whereas, the democracy of th city deem this a fit oppodunity to declare the sentiments in regard to tis question; therefor be it Resolved, That we heaftily endorse the court of our delegates in the legislature. Resolved, that the gi. lual emancipation slavery in the State of' Missouri, in the opinic of the convention, is an open question, and or of vital importance to th people of this Stat< that we disapprove of the resolutions on th sulject, introduced by Mr. Carr, in the legis ture, during its last session, as an attempt I gag the free expression of opinion upon ti freedom of speech and of the press. IResoived, That the contitution of this Stal provides that slaves may be emancipated by ti consent of the owner. bygtaking compensatic fur the same; and that gradual emancipatioi uion the terms provided in the constitution, neither impracticable. unwise or unjust, if shall appear to be for the' best interests of ti people of this State; anfthe.only mode of a certaining this important fact is by full and frc discussion of the entire system. It is in evidence here that within the chi city of' Missouri there is an abolition party for "emancipation" is only -a word used to avoi the odium which attaches to the woid " abol ton"-and this party by.aid from the othc parts uf the State haid .sufficient force withi the recent Missouri legislature to propose il measures, and be tolerated in the discussion themn.

THE SUREME COURT AND BLACK REPUBLI CANISM, h The Legislatures of all the Free Soil Statei t which have taken .any action whatever on thi n subjcct, as well as public meetings, have unitedl, te denounced the decision of the Supreme Cour - and declared their purpose not to obey it. Al r of them concur in the declaration that any per is son attempting to hold another as a slave, direct >r ly or indirectly, in their jurisdiction, shall bi 5. fined and imprisoned. That if any person shal 1, seize or arrest a fugitive from service, he shal be punished with fine and imprisonment. Tha ie any attempt to arrest with intent to carry therr ie out of the State, to enslave them, shall be pun r ished with imprisonment in the Penitentiary They denounce the opinion of the Suprem< y Court, as extra-judicial, contradictory to well s 1 known facts in hisory, repugnant to the plair provisions of the Constitution, and subversive o the rights of freemen antI free States. The) D, de'clare it as their opinion that every free persor ir born within the lii itts of any State i. this Unior >- is a citizen thereof, and that to deny it, is a pal 1, pable and unwarrantable violation of the Con .o stitution. They denounce the doctrine held by is the Snpreme Court, that the Federal Constitu ir tion regards slaes us were properI/, and which , asserts and protects the claims of masters to slaves to the same extent and in the same man. e ner as the rights of owners in property, within the limits of free States, during temporary visits f or for purposes of transit, as a doctrine to whie n no free State will submit! e They also declare that the doctrine announced ; by the Supreme Court, that there exists no pow s er in the General Government to exclude slavery L. from the Territories of the United States, is a o doctrine subversive of the express provisions of e the Constitution, that it annuls the just authori. ty of the people of the United Statos over their e own territories, and contradicts the whole prac. c tice of the Government under every Administra. tion, from Gen. Washington to that of Mr. Polk. - They then direct their artillery against the constitution of the Supreme Court, and denounce t it as securing the aseendary of the Slave power, e secured bv the arrangenient of the Circuits which gives to the Slave States with less than one-third of the free population of the Uniou, five out of nine judges, leaving to the free States ,f with more than two.thirds of the free population, only f/bur. They accordingly proclaim ain Un compromising war against the Court as now con stituted, and declare that they will never be sat r isfied until they obtain the ascendancy in that tribunal. We see,'too, that several of the Free State l Legislatures have made apprapriations from the public treasury, in aid of the emigrants they have sent to make Kansas a free State. Ohio e and Massachusetts, we believe, have each appro e ,riated one hundred thousand dollarsl How, is it possible, for us of, the South to live in harmony in the- same Union, wvit hou anyi innteni." ...........--- - -- --- ma1:1.11-s f0h 'th- enrrenit year, Our fIornr esti muatv., of a falling odf in the Cotton product, of V.50,000 bah-S. a- coinpared with last Year, still h.,lds measurably getn, the dierease was, per a h ,lakcel at too low a tigure.

In a recent number of the New Orleans Cre ole, we find a very interesting description of an establishment in that city for the manufacture of oil from cotton seed. After describing the process, the Creole says: Cotton seed has heretofore been regarded as useful only for the purpose of manure. It has added nothing to the value of Southern produc tions; but it is now shown to be little inferior in intrinsic. value to the silky fibre in which it is enclosed. The establishment, to which we allude, pro duces five hundred barrels of oil per day, from the dry cotton seed. A novel and beautiful piece of machinery hulls it with the utmost pre cision and the greatest rapidity, leaving the oily meat free from every foreign substance. Ex posed to a considerable heat, and subjected to pressure, oil is produced, which, by a new chemi Cal process of clarification, becomes fit for every purpose for which olive, lard, or sperm oil is adapted To-day, it is used on the tables of many of our citizens, as olive oil. It burns in the solar and astral lamps in our parlors. It is used on machinery as a lubricator, and answers everyv other purpose for which fine native or foreign oil is needed. The establishment is self-sustaining. The re fuse hulls furnish the fuel to drive the engines. Not a single stick of wood has been purchased since the machinery was first put in motion. As an experiment, a portion of the accumulation of the waste has been shipped to the North to be worked up into bookbinders' boards, for which purpose this material is believed to be admirably adapted. Six months have not yet elapsed since the machinery was set in motion, and now the oil is finding its way into the coun try in preference to lard or sperm oil, and is for sale in many establishments of this city. The sale is quite equil to the possibility of produc tion. The effect of this favorable experiment with cotton seed upon our domestic economy, is like ly to be most favorable. For years the price of pork has steadily advanced. 'We are burning up so. many hogs, in the shape of oil, that the price of meat, unless a new source of. oil had been discovered, must have proved a seriou in convenience. Let however, the cotton seed, which now rot in millions of tons on our plan tations, be pressed into oil, and the South will be independent of northern fishermen, and in stead of being consumers, will soon become ex porters of oils that are superior to and cheaper than any other now used. The cotton fields will prove richer mines of wealth than the most pro ductive gold-bearing States of California. Pork, no longer wasted for light, or manufactured into table oil, or into perfumery for the toilet, can again be furnished for five or ten dollars per barrel. "I wonder if lie will pay that note." Think everybody means to cheat you. Closely exam ine every bill you take, and doubt its being genuine, till you have put the owner to a great deal of trouble. Believe every shilling passed to you is but a sixpence crossed, and express your doubts about getting rid of it, if you should take it. Put confidence in nobody, and111 believe every man you trade with to be a rogue. Never accontnodatU, if you can possibly help it. Never visit tl sick or aiheted, and never give a Lfarthing to the poor. Buy as cheap as you can. and screw down to the lowest mill. Griid the faces and the hearts of the unfortun ate. Brood over your misfortunes-your lack ofr talent-, and believe at no distant day you w.ll come to want. Let the workhouse be ever in your mind, with all the horrors of pov ert~r. Then von will bte miserable to y-our heamrt's content~, (if we may so speak,) sick at he-art and at v-ariamnce with all the world. Noth ing will cheer or entcourage you ; nothing wvill throw a gleam of sunshine or a ray of warmth into your heart. All will be as dark and cheer Ie-s as the grave. A F-rNw. Trornarr.-" I would not [said one who wais not himSelf pious] tmarry anywoa ni ho wazs not a Christian. I should feel it such an honor to share a heart in which God dwelt." It wvas a line thought, and deserves to be spe ciamlly remenmbered. You want a friend in whom von can have en tire anid unihmnited confidence ; one who can lie vourm counsellor in all circumstances of difficulty 'or trial ; one who is to lie identified with you through life, in hope and fear, in joy and sorrow. She is to be a sort of preidhing divinity at thy family boar-d, and her countenance the mnirror in which must lhe rellected the faithful imtage of thy dhomestic b~liss or woe ; one who will be dis cret afhetionate, amid [irm in governing her children ; in short, wvho will love you for your own sake, be happy with you in a cabin, and who will cleave the closer to you when tho stornm ofr adversity or persecution shall have swept away or withurod overy vestige of earthly comn liort fromt abiout you. Now bear all these things in minid; and then to your praiyers and the ex ercise of a becoumig prudence, and you w~ill not be likely to fail.--Bi.'hop A n/rc r. HI a- -ro Pi..-ri:as.-It is to be feared that inh. pcresentm high prlicOs of -otton may h-adl thme plnesof the South into a great error, viz: the dirctiocn of all their energies, thme present y-ear, to the production of thme staple, to the neglect of the breuadstutl' crops. They forget, or are apt to do so, that a failure in the latter causes the success of thme former toQ turn to ashes" in their pockets. Cotton is high, but may be readily broughit down hv over.production, and when that is done in time 'of scarcity iu' articles of food, the distress is wide-spread and d'sastrous. if cotton commands a good price, so does corn, wheat, and indeed grain of all sorts, together with heef, pork, mutton and other meats, into which they are converted. Let planiters recol lect this, and not be led astray by the temipora rv inflation of prices. We are candid to state our belief that cotton will continue to command a good pirice, but not high enough to justify peo-~ Ile in running wild in its production-a state of things that is sure to brintg about the revolution in value wIch they so much depirecate.--Saran nah Republican. in aii.-r.John Case, of Kensington, N.1., was leading a horse into the stable, when the dloor swung to, leaving the animal on the outside aind she within, the halter tied round hetr thumb in such a way that when the horse started, her thiumb was torn fronm her hand, and the cords were drawn from her arm to her elbow.

Verry respectfully, PATRICK HENRY. A few weeks ago an old gentleman and his asdy were coming down from Iowa City to Da renport, wheu the ears wer crowded.
