"HANAH BINDING SHOES."
The following remarkable poem, written by
Lucy LowcoM, of the Bay State, is certainly very
beautiful and cannot fail to win the admiration of
Poor lone Hannah,
Sitting at the window, binding shoes.
Sitting, stitching, in a mournful muse.
Bright-eyed beauty once was she,
When the bloom was on the tree:
Spring and winter
Hannah's at the window, binding-shoes.
Not a neighbor
Passing nod or answer will refuse
To her whisper
"Is there from the fishers any news'T"
Oh, her heart's adrift, with one
On an endless voyage gone!
Night and morning
Hannah's at the winduw, binding shoes.
Fair young Hannah,
Ben, the sun-burt fisher, gayly woos.
Tall and clever,
For a willing heart and hanl he sues.
May-day skies are all ngltlw,
And the waves are langhing so!
For her wedding
Hannah leaves her window, and her shoes.
May is passing;
'Mong the appie-boughs a phteon coos.
For the wild southwester mischief brews.
Round the rocks of Marblehead,
Outward bound, a schooner spcd.
11annah's at the window, binding shices.
Now r.o tear her wa-ted check belews,
Not a sail returning will she lose,
Wispering, hoarsely, " Fishermen,
Ilave you, have you heard of Bein "
Old with watching,
Haanali's at the window, binding Alces.
Bleach and tear the rn:ged shore she views.
Never one has brought her any news.
Still her dim eyes silently
Chase the white sails o'er the -:ea.
Hannah's at the window, bindina slocs.

MARRIAGE A DUTY.
T EX T.
Don% tell me vou - liave'r' t gut thie.

There's not the leist season or ryme
In the wise.st excuse you caa nitiicn;
Don't te!l me about " other tih."
Your duty is dine wlhen you inev 'em,
A nil vou never will relish the eidi,
Urik s vou've a wonan to "'fry em."
My iI~'wrs--- have no doubt that after y'ou
have hear'd my discourse, you wtill ask in your.
own minds whether your preacher has taken
unto himself a wife, and is now luxuriating in
the tall clover of connubial bliss, that he pr'each
eth thius. Therefore [ "'nswer beforetimec. N;
hut I have measured for one, and expect to con-'
jugate as soon as my somewhait diverged rays of
affection can lbe brought a little mxore to a focu
through the burning lens of lov-e. 1 deem it thec
duty of all to get married-once in their life
time at least. It is but yielding obedienCe to
the wise commnands of nature. Every gander
has his goose, and the birds all mnate at a pr'oper'
season. Whoever heard of an old gander going
down to the grave gosling-le", unless lie was
prevented fromni fulltilling his destiny by the arb'i
trary customs of society ? It is God that tell.s
the'brute creation to multiply and replemiah
without the fuas and flummer'y of a long and
tedious courtship; they implicitly obe;y, eveni to
the wood-louse. Thie same God uls' tells, you
to marry. atnd do the bet yon cim to be h'uitt'ul;
but y'tt 'don't lwvays do it. You frame soe
paltry excuse (or other--such as "I have other
fish to fry," "too' b'usv to think of it now,"
" circum1aces~ will not ahnit at pr-eent," "I'll
think of it hy anl hy." &c.; :mde soe you trudge
on t hrou'gh the wide world alo'ne. fioni thej

the fifth wheel of a coac'h, a mnoon in the dayv

Young man ! if you have a'rrived at the righit
paint in life for it, let every otier con,'derationi
give way to that of getting mnarriedl. IDonrt
think of' any thinig el-n. Keep poking about
among the rubbish of thme woirldl till yonu have
stirred up a gem worth posessinig, ini the shape
of awf. eerthink of delayingr the ma.'m - etter ;
for youi know delay. a-; well as wild boars. are
udangrou['. A gooid wife is the imo-t e-matanit
and'faithmfuil co'impanion you can possibly have by
your sidle while perlbrmin~g the journey of life
a1 dog isn't a touchi to hetr. She can ".. iot h

for you-ruftle, perhaps your shiit hiosomi, lbut
n.ot your temper; and, in-teadl of sowinig the
seedsof sor-row in yocu- path, she will sew bu:t
tonls ci your shirts, and plant happiness insteadi
ofharoir-teeth in youir bsin. Yes--amnd if
you art too confoundedly lazy or- too proud to do
such we'k your-self, she will carry swill to th~e
hogs, cIhp w~ood, an'! dig potatoes for dinnei
for her ov-e for her imishiand is such that shie
w1ill do aything to please him--excepit receive
comnpanyin her every day clothes. Wheni a
woman lues, shec loves with a doubjk-dhistilled
devotedner ; and when she hiates,. she hates on
the high-pissure principle. 1ier love iS as dleepi
as the occa.- as strong as a hempien halter, and~i
as itamutab. as the rock of' at.ea. She wion't
change it, ecept it is inl a vecry strong fit of
jealousy ; ame'ven thlen it lingers, a~s if' loth to
part, like evting twilight at the wimdoiws oif
the west. Gemai i'i by all miean~s. All the
escuses you ct fish up caain..t " d, ineg the
deed " ain't woh a spoionfucl of' pigeon's iik.
Mark this-if, hat with healith anid employ
ifient; you are it able to support a wife', de
pend upon it, y0o're not capable of supporting
...rw1L Thare. -o -..ch more need of an..
nexation; for in union, as well as in onion, there
is strength. Get married, I repeat, young man!
Concentrate your affections upon one object.
and not distribute them, crumb by crumb,
among a host of Susans, Sarahs, Marys, Elizas,
Betseys, Peggys and Dorothys-allowing each
scarcely enough to nibble at. Get married,and
have somneb-dy to chcer you up as you journey
through this "lowly vale of tears"-somcbody
to scour up your dull, melancholy moments, and
keep your whole life, and whatever linen you
possess, in some sort of a Sunday-go-to-meeting
Young woman! I need not tell you to look
out for a husband, for I know that you are fix
ing contrivances to catch one, and are as natu
rally on the watch as a cat is for a mouse. But I
one word in your ear, if you please. Don't bait
your hook with an artificial fly of beauty; if
you do, the chances are ten to one that you will
catch a gudgeon-soine silly fool of a fish that I
isn't worth his weight in sawdust. Array the t
inner lady with the beautiful garments of vir
tue, modesty, truth, morality, wisdom, and un
sophisticated love, and you will dispose of your
self quicker, and to much better advantage, than t
you would if you displayed all *the gewgaw, I
flipperings, fol-de-rols, and fiddle-de-dees in the
universe. Remember, it is an awful thing to
live and die a self-manufactured old maid !
My hearers--divide off into couples, sexually,
as soon as possible, if you would add considera
ble to your own happiness, and a little to pos
terity. Your days upon earth are but short at
the longest, and they should be passed as right
cously and pleasantly as the weather and cii
custances will permit. Get married while you
are young; and then, when the frost of age
shall fall and wither the flowers of youthful af
lection, the leaves of connubial love will still be
een; ain, perchance, a joyous offsprinr will I
surround and grace the parent tree, like ivy I
entwiniig ai adorning the time scathed oak.
So mote it be!

An alarmist is one who is more industrious in
yinting out the defects of the Government,
han in giving it credi t for the excellencies which
t really possesses. It is my wish to avoid this
inenviable position in the eyes of the thoughtful.

person of this character, that, could I, consi

ant desire which has scized the minds of a large

xtenit-an extent which thiratens to absorb
very other speCies of school-that even T, in

aise from the depths of obscuiity, my feeble
eice against this suicidil policy. There is no

tate pride-who plories more in the military
chievemncits oif our little State, than I do.
onc who would do more to ,tustain the loftv
ioition which Ale has won in the fl14 ; none
rho reveres with more veneration the trophies
otten in battle. It with all my military ar
or and state pride, I am loth to see the citizens
f South Carolina willinglv resign all claims to
re-eminence as an agricultural and literary
tople. The civic laurels won by our statesmen
n Senatorial strife, and worn so gracefully by our
Ivm:, CA :unors, r:.i-n and other, are no

But Africa continues to be the source whence
the colonies first drew their laboring population.
It is convenient to our American possessions.
Its inhabitants are gentle, robust, sociable, and
inclined to agricultural pursuits. Then, in ad
dition to this, they are oppre'sed and subject to
the horrors of perpetual anarchy in their own
Are not these reasons sufficient to induce us
to look to Africa for laborers for our colonies?
And our planters, authorised by a government
ctreful of their interest<, have turned their at
tention to that quarter. African emigration has
commenced; it is pursued with energy, and we
hope it will continue until our colonies revive.
Duk it is a great scandal to the superannuated
society which was accustomed for twenty-five
years to behold the world bow before its decrees
in matters of philanthropy. What! lay hands
on Africa, the holy ark which has been guarded
wtlI such an extreme jealousy, and defended
still more by the prestige which ithas acquired?
Yet the Tines thinks the present opportunity
firtunate for seizing it again ; and, tbanks to its
proceedings, Parliament already resounds with
the declaration of grievances, the mest grievous
of which is that they cannot have laborers from
Africa except they purcha.4e them again. It is
a natural result of the social state of that conn
try. Slavery is the general condition of its
working population. As it is not among the
merchants, the nechanics, nor the lauded pro
prietors that we find emigrant laborers here, so
inl Africa we do not seek among the free, who
enjoy a certain degree of conhbrt anl authority,
for laborers willing to expatriate thenelves to
a fregn climate. African emigration would be
reduced to the smiallest proportion if it were re
stricted to those only who are free; but it be
comes serious wh -n it falls on those who have
beeft redeemed from slavery.
But, say the English, when you buy slaves
from the African chief you encourage those
hiefs to procure others by teans of incursions,
and thus perpetuate intestine wars in that un
happy couitry. Unfortunately, the barbarism
which reigns in that continent is exercised in
dependently of al! outside pressure. When an
African chief does not sell his slaves he kills
To deprive Africa of contact with civilization,

byiw thik tlone they prove themselves savages.
