WHAT I LIVE FOR.
I live for those who love me,
Whose hearts are kiml and true ;
For the heaven that smiles above me,
And awaits my spirit too ;
For human ties that bind me.
For the task by God assigned me;
For the bright hopes left behiud me.
And the good that I can do.
I live to learn their story
Who've suffered for my sake;
To emulate their glory,
And to follow in their wake:
Bards, patriots, martyrs, sages,
The noble of all ages.
Whose deeds crowd History's pages.
And Time's great volume make.
I livAtnhnid communion.
With all that is divine;
To feel there is a union
'Twist Nature's heart and mine:
To profit by affliction.
Reap truths from fields of fictiou,
Grow wiser from conviction,
And fulfill each grand design.
I live to hail that season
By gifted minds foretold,
When men shall rule by reason,
And not alone by gold;
When man to man united,
And every wrong thing righted,
The whole world shall be lighted
As Eden was of old.
I live for those who love me;
For those who know me true;
For the heaven that smiles above me,
Aud awaits my spirit too:
For the cause that lacks assistance;
For the wrong that needs resistauce;
For the.future in the distance ;
And the good that I can do.

THE DUTCHMAN WHO HAD THE
SMALL POX.
The writer sat alongside of the driver one
morning, just at break of day, as the stage
drove out of Blackberry, he was a through
passenger to Squash Point. It was a very
cold morning. In order to break the ice
for a conversation, he praised the fine points
of the off horse; the driver thawed.
Yaas, she's a ?ood hoss, and I knows
how to trive him v
It was evidently a case of mixed breed.
'Where is Wood, who used to drive this
stage ?'
'He be's laid up mit ter rumatiz, since
ycster week, and I trives for him. So"
1 went on reading a newspaper. A
fellow passenger, on a back seat, not having
the fear of murdered English on his
hands, coaxed the Dutch driver into a long
conversation, much to the delight of a very
pretty Jersey-blue belle, who laughed so
merrily that it was contagious; and in a few
minutes, from being like unto a conventicle,
wc were as wide awake as one of Christy's
audiences. By sunrise we were in excellent
spirit, up to all sorts of fun, and when,
a little latter, our stage stopped at the first
watering place, the driver found himself in
the centre of a group of trcaters to the distilled
juice of apples.

the third house on the left hand side
after you get into Jericho. What do you
charge ?' asked a man who seemed to know
the driver.
'Pout a lefty," answered he. Receiving
the silver, he gathered up the reins, and put
the square package in the stage-box. Just
as he started the horses, he leaned his head
out of the stage, and looked back to the man
who gave him the bundle, shouting out the
question, 'The find|house on ter left hand
out of Yeriko ?'
The man didn't hear him, but the driver
was satisfied. On we went at a very good
rate, considering how heavy the roads were.
Another tavern, more v/atering, more apple
jack. Another long stretch of sand, and we
were nearing Jericho.
'Anny poddy know der Miss Seutler
house ?' asked the driver, braciug his feet
on the mail bag, which lay in front of him,
and screwing his head round so as to face
in. There seemed to be a consultation going
on inside the stage.
'I don't know nobody o' that name in Jericho
; do you, Lishe ?' asked a weather beaten
looking man, who evidently 'went by water,'
of another who appcarently weut the |
ame way.
'There was old Squire Gow's da'ter, she i
married a Scudder, and moved up here some |
two years back. Come to think on't, guess
she lives nigher to Glass-house,' answered
Lishe.
The driver, finding he could get no light j
of the passengers, seeing a tall raw-boned j
woman washing some clothes in front of a j
house, and who flew out of sight as the stage J
flew in, handing uie the reins as he jumped :
from his seat, and chased the fugitive, hallooing,

ed into the open door of the house. Hut in ;
a minute re-appeared, followed by a broom 1
with an enraged woman aunexed, and a loud
voice shouted out:
'You git out o' this ! clear yourself quicker.
I aint sroing to have you diseasing honest
folks, if you have got the small pox !"
'1 dellsyoo I'fe got der small pox. Ton'I

shouted it out in capital letter.-.
'Clear out! I'll call the men folks, if you

to her that it was a box he had for her. The I
affair was soon settled, as regarded delivery;
but not as regarded the laughter and shouts '
of the occupants of the old stage coach, as 1
we rolled away from Jericho. The driver '

A RICH SERMON.
Where is the man with his harp of a thousand
strings?
The following rich extract from a sermon
will be recognised at a glance by some of
our readers here at home. It loses much
of its humor, because we cannot put in
print the sing song style and appropriate
gestures that accompany it:
My frieuds, sin makes the purtiest young
man or ooman in the world ugly-ah. And
I'll tell you how I know-ah; as I was coming
up to church to-day-ah, I saw some
young men in the road-ah. And I thought
one of them the purtiest young man I ever
saw in my life-ah. And as I drew nigh unto
them I discovered that they were playing
uv marvels, and they all drew nigh unto a
place what they called the taw-ah, and they
marveled, he jumped up and flapped his
hauds like a rooster does his wings, and says
he, "I wish I may be d?d if I haintfat-ah.'
And, oh my friends, then I thought that he
was the ugliest young man I ever saw in my
life-ah. And I opened my mouth and spake
unto him thus-ah, says I, "young man, this
is not the way to salvation." And says he,
"Old horse, if you had been salivated as bad
as I have, you wouldn't want to hear talk
iif sal vnfinn
And now my friends, when that ar young
man said he was fat he told a lie-ah, for he
was'as lean as that hungry-looking sister
over thar that's always a praying so pious
while the hat is a being passed around-ah.
And my friends, if that young man hadn't
been blinded by sin, he never could a mistuk
me for an old korse-ah.
AN EXTRAORDINARY GENIUS.
A tall slab-sided specimen of a Jersey-man,
who hailed from some benighted region of
the sandy State, came to the city on Friday,
says the Philadelphia Sunday Dispatch, and
by perseveringly going around tasting specimens,
he managed to get himself pretty-well
spirit-logged. Jersey finally got on such a
head of steam that he collapsed, and fetched
up ingloriou3ly, shortly after night, upon a
cellar door. After reposing upon his ligneous
bed for a brief season, and giving occasion
meanwhile for much speculation among
the boys, who are usually on hand on such
occasions, a "star" passed along that way and
carried the prostrate votary of bad whiskey
off to the station house. The nest morning,
Jersey had become sufficiently sobered to
have a hearing, and he was taken before au
alderman, who enjoys a reputation for official
dignity, importance, pomposity, and highfalutiness
generally.
The prisoner was as taciturn as his judge
was wordy, and an amusing dialogue took

had got through with his evidence, in which
the fact of drunkeness was very clearly set
forth, the alderman commenced:
"Ahem ! Well, sir, and so you have been
getting intoxicated, sir, and forgetting the
decencies of life and your social obligations!
Ilavc you no appreciation of the social obligation
of good citizens?"
"Nary 'preciation !" responded the defendant,
sententiously.
"If you have no respect for your obligations
to society, sir, have you no knowledge
of the requirement of the law ?"
"Nary knowledge!" responded Jersey,
stolidly.
"Don't *you know, sir, that there is a
straining law in Pennsylvania ? Do you never
sec a newspaper in your part of the world,
sir?"
"Nary newspaper ?"
"Well, ignorance of the law excuscth no
man," continued the magistrate, becoming
somewhat railed at the offender.
"Have you ever made that discovery ?"
"Nary discovery !" replied Jersey, in the
usual tone.
The Squire was getting his back up.
"Do you know anything but your eternal
(nari/,' sir ?"
"Nary anything !" quietly replied the man
of few words.
"Have you money to pay your fine ?" thundered
the alderman.
"Nary red!" responded Jersey.
"Take him below growled the man of law,
"the fellow has neither money nor wit."
"Nary!" was the remark, as the officer
started to escort his charge Moyamensingward.
The last heard of the genius was a reply
he made to the knight of the billy.
"Look-a-herc, stranger," said the latter,
"as a general thing, do you contiue your rei
marks to one word? Don't you know, any
thing but mtry ?"
"Navy !" was the reply.

Why Satan Nrvkr Disti uuk a Wo-1
man.?Mohammedans relate (lie following;;
;
story as an authentic ami veritable piece of ;
tradition, illustrative of the fact that the i
Devil himself has duties to perform in the j
world, and that all things would go wong if ,
he were idle and neglected them:
In the days of Mohammed there was an \
Arab who had a very pretty wife. Toe Devil ;
formed himself into so exact and accurate
likeness of her husband that she could not ;
for the life of her tell which of the two was
her husband. Both claimed her, that is, the j
real husband and the Devil in his Jikencss.
The case excited much interest in tJie neighborhood,
but no solution of the difficulty

couiu DC ODtaineu. ivi icngin imj case was ,
brought before bis majesty the prophet.? j
Mohammed, after a little reflect! on, held up
a certain carthcrn pot in his hand, with a
spout like a teapot, and said to them both,
"Now, which ever is the real "husband will
enter this vessel by the spout .'ind thus establish
his claim to the woman J' The Devil,
as having more capacity in." that way than
the sturdy Arab of real fle jh and bones, entered
into the pot as suggested. The moment
he entered Moham med closed the top
of the spout and kept h:un shut in. By the
time Mohammed had k ept him shut up for
a few days, it was ascci lained that worl,d was
getting wrong in all its machinery. Mohammed
was thereto" cc constrained to let'thc
Devil out of his con'nncment to take his necessary
place in th e management of the affairs
of the world. But before restoring him
to Ins liberty agr rin Mohammed extorted a
solemn promise f) ,*om him that he would never
trouble the "to ar sex" any more, but con
fine himself to what he could do among the j'
"male sex." M

Aiivaxtaok of using Tobacco.?The 11
following was communicated to Com. Wilkes, j t
of the Exploring Expedition, by a savage of j t
the Fecjec Islands. lie stated that a ves- 1
sel, the bulk of which was still lying on the i
beach, had come ashore in a storm, that all c
the crew had fallen into the hands of the t
Islanders. t
"What did you do with them?" inquir- c
ed Wilkes. j
"Killed 'cm all," answered the savage. 1
"What did you do Willi tncm ancr you
hail killed tlieni ?"
"Eat 'em?good," returned the cannibal.
"Did you eat them all'{" asked the halfsick
Commodore.
"Yes, we oat all but one."
"And why did you\sparc one?"
"Because he tasted too much like tobacco.
Could't eat him no how !"
If the tobacco, chewcr should happen to
fall into the hands of Xew Zealand savages, t
or get shipwrecked somewhere in the Fccjce .
group, he will have the consolation of knowing
that he will not be cut into steaks, and
buried in the unconsccratcd stomach of a
cannibal.
- A
Remarkable Executioner.?We <
have observed several stories of late respect- *
iug the skill of the Chinese executioners, 1
who it is said can strike off the head of their ]
victims so skilfully that the poor fellows
themselves never discover their loss until a 1
moment or two after they are dead. We re- 1
call to mind, however, the story of a Gcr- '
man executioner, who far surpassed the Chi- (
nese in dexterity. Upon one occasion it '
happened that a criminal, who was condemn- (
ed to death, had a singular itching to play 1
at ninepins; and he implored permission to 1
play once more at his favorite game before 5
he died. Then he said he would submit to J
his fate withouta murmur. The judge, think- 1
ing there could be no harm in humoring '
him, granted his last prayer; and upon arri- 1
ving at the place of execution, he found ev- J
crything prepared for the game?the pins 1
being set up and the bowls all ready. I
Fie commenced his favorite sport with en- '
thusiasm. After a while, the sheriff obser- '
ving that he showed no inc'.iuation to desist, 1
made a sign to the executioner to strike the 1
fatal blow while he stooped for a bowl. The ^
executioner did so, but with such exquisite '
dexterity that the culprit did not notice or *
feel it. lie thought, indeed, that a cold L
breath of air was blowing upon the neck, and (
drawing himself back with a shrug, his head 1
dropped forward into his hands. lie natu- 5
rally supposed that it was a bowl which he (
had grasped, and seizing it firmly, rolled it '
at the pins. All of them fell; and the head J
was heard to exclaim as it rebounded from 1
the farther wall, "Hurrah! I've won the '
game!"?Portfolio. '

Pretty Rapid.?An old man and his son,
neither of them very well informed as to rail- t
roads and their use, chanced one day to be <
at work in a field near a railroad track.? j
Railroads were a novel 'institution,' to them, t
and when a train of cars shot by, a thought
was suggested to the lad, who said to his 1
parent:
'Dad why don't you take a ride in the
cars, some day?'
'Take a ride in the cars? Why, I liaint
got time, my son.'
'Got time? Thunder! Ye can go anywhere
in the cars quicker than ye can stay
at home!' c

ADMISSION OF SLAVE STATES.
We regret to find the doctrine becoming
current that a territory, with the requisite
amount of population, that adopts a republican
form of government, has a rir/ht upon
application to be admitted into the Union.
There is at present no practical objection to
such doctrine, hut practical objections may
arise. An Indian territory thus applying,
would and should he denied admission. So "
a territory composed chiefly of free-negroes,
or of Chinese idolators, or a newly conquered
territory, whose people are neither assim- s
ilated or attached to us or our institutions, a
In the last case, to grant the light of ndmis- i
sion, would he to deny the right of conquest f
?for the State coming in to-day, might se- c
cede to-morrow, and set up for itself. c
Again, when, by fraud or force, the pco. a
pie of any oue State or section have seized c
upon a territory, excluded, in any way, the a
people of other States, and purpose, by their t
constitution, to continue such exclusion, the o
Federal Covernnicnt, the connnou agent of u
all the States, that holds the territories as a
common trust- fund, should indignantly refuse
such application. After a State is admitted
into the I'nion, she has a right to ex- I
elude the manufacturers of Now England, 'i
the merchandize of New Yorlc, the hogs of u
Ohio, the mules of Kentucky, or the slaves
of the South; hut surely a territory has no ?
such right, nor has she any right to be ad- c
milled as an equal .member of the I'nion, c
when her petition is accompanied with a L
constitution which destroys such equality, ji
and injures and insults a portion of those j y
to whom her petition is preferred. [ a
State Equality, is all the South asks.? j a
Conservatives at the North will see no ag-! (
gression, 110 insult, 110 injustice to the North ; t
in this. Candor obliges us to say that the
South has to recover lost ground. The priu- e
eiplc of the Missouri Compromise was inju- s
lions and insulting to the South. It was 1:
gross aggression on the part of the North ? 0
Too many good, but sensitive people at the a
North, think that the South, in attempting I
to recover lost ground, in rectifying the s
wrong that has been done her, is aggressing ;i
| on the North. The utmost the South asks, j
| and less she will not take from the Federal s
(iovcrnmcnt, is, that her institutions, her t
I social forms, her property, and her people, 1
| shall be protected at home, and protected in a
! extending themselves into the common tcr-! i
ritories of the Union, just as arc the institu-1 j
tions, the social forms, the property and the ! t
people of the North. 1
It is well that we should understand one i
and another, for on this issue the next Pres- ^
| ident is to be elected, and the Union is to
' be preserved or dissolved. The Northern t
j conservatives. To Northern conservatives, 1
1 we take this occasion to explain and justify s
I our course for u year past. All human in- t
stitutions are attended with evils. We can 1
only ascertain which arc' best by exposing
and balancing their comparative evils. We 1
can defend one set of institutions only by J
exposing the greater evils of opposite insti- tutions.
It was our right and duty to de- i
fend the South. We could only do so by j
'showing up" the evils of Northern Society. |
iVe had been long assailed, borne the assaults j
jatiently, and at length, in self defence, j
lave returned blow for blow. Will not Nor- ;
hern conservatives thank us for teaching I
I
he fanatics that they have evils enough at j
ionic to remedy, without intermeddling with ;
is and endangering the Union ? We do not
ixpcct to made converts to our doctrines at
he North; but we do hope we have shown
hat the question, as to which of our forms
>f society is best, is open and undecided.?
Vll we ask is equality in the eyes and at the
lands of the General Government. Let
lie people of the North love, boast of, aud
:herish their institutions. Let the people of
lie South do the same. The conservatives
>f the North must see that the Black Remblicans
are Socialists, and equally the arowcd
and open enemies of Northern and
southern institutions. If the North values
ts present social forms, it can ouly preserve
hem by alliance with the South, for the
south is all conservative, and wishes to disurb
110 existing institutions.?Richmond

THE COTTON PLANT.
All the readers of The Examiner arc more
ir less interested in our gaeat staple. We
lave before us, in the National Intelligencer,
he report of a paper read before the Na.ional
Institute, by Dr. Charles T. Jackson,
ivhich we think of sufficient interest to re
iublish:
The Corresponding Secretary read a paier
by Dr. Chaff." T. Jackson, of Boston, en.itled
"Chemical Researches on the seed of
he Cotton Plant." Ilaving become interred
in the cultivation of the cotton crop,
Dr. J. also turned his attention to the uses of
rntton seed, the great mass of which is thrown
jut from the gin-house and allowed to rot
'or manure. His researches show that the
seed may be'profitably employed in the proluction
of oil, whilst the refuse fibre adherng
to the hulls may be used in the manufacture
of paper. The oil-cake may serve
,o feed animals or as manure. Dr. Jackson
s aware that cotton-seed oil is manufactured
n New Orleans, but is informed that the
^ield of oil is very small from seeds that
lave been hulled. The analysis was confined I
w
;o the seed after being deprived of the hull
:>y Mr. Messer's patent machine. The
imount of oil in these seeds was determined
)y extraction with ether, after the seed had
men pulverized and dried at 212 deg. F.
3ne experiment gave 39,7 per cent, of oil
md another 40. The specific gravity of this
)il is 0,923, (water being unity,) the same
is purified whale oil. Cotton-seed oil is
stated by Dr. Wood to be drying oil; but the
)il obtained by Dr. J. did not dry. It there'ore
serves well for the lubrication of majhincry
as well as for illumination and makng
soap. It may also be used as a substi;ute
for olive oil in many cases, and may
jc eaten on salad, as it has no disagreeable
)dor to taste.
The oil-cake amounts to GO per cent, of
,hc seed, which was found to contain 11 per
:ent. of grape sugar and 3,5 per cent, of
;um, which latter is soluble in boiling waerand
precipitable by alcohol.
Repeated analysis of the oil-cake gave the
bllowing:
Carbon : : : : 37.740
Oxygen : : : : 39.993
Nitrogen : : : : 7.753
Hydrogen : : : : 5.8G9
Salts (inorganic): : : 8.9G0
From 300 grains of oil-cake 1G.5 grains
if ashes were obtained, which upon analysis
rave the following results, when calculated
n hundredths of the dried seed :
Alkaline salts soluble in water : 0.13
Phosphate of lime : : 3.04
Potash : : : : : 0.4G
Soda : : : : : 0.53
Phosphoric acid, with traces of
sulphuric acid and chlorine : 0.81
Silica and oxide of iron and of
manganese : : : : 0.18
Loss : : : : : 0.35
5.50
The whole amount of phosphoric acid preont
was 2 450, and lime! .340.
These results explain the value of cotton
eed as manure for Iudian corn, which draws

o largely on son ior pnospnaies. ic win
Iso be seen that the oil-cake contains nitogen
and hydrogen sufficient to afford ten
>er cent, of ammonia, which is a solvent,
wrier, and stimulant to vegetation. The
arbon and oxygen will form carbonic acid,
nofher active fertilizer. (Some remaining
arbon will form vegetable mould, which the
lkalies will in part dissolve and carry into
he circulation of growing plants. Indeed,
very element of cotton-seed cake acts as
uitrimcnt to vegetation.

NO GLOOM AT HOME.
Mrs. Dcnison, in one of her brief contrilUtions
to the Olirc Brunch, gives a new
deal home picture, that many eyes will look
ipon with pleasure:
?Above all things, there should be no
loom at home. The shadows of dark disonteut
and wasting fretfulncss should never

lack shapes like funeral palls over the hap- 1
y young spirits gathered there. If you will, j

ANECDOTE OF GEN. JACKSON. i
The Western Advocate records the follow- "
ing interesting anecdote of Jackson. The
scene of it was in the Tennessee Annual Conference
held at Nashville, and to which he n
had been invited by a vote of the brethren, '
that they might have the pleasure of an introduction
to him: ii
"The committee was appointed; they ''
waited on General J., and he and the Com- n
inittee fixed the time for 9 o'clock, on Mon- e
day morning to visit the Conference. 1 lie 1
Conference room being too small to accom- J1
modate the hundreds who wished to witness
the introduction, one of the churches was 1
substituted, and an hour before the time, jj
filled to overflowing. Front seats were re- i
served for the members of the Conference, s
which was called to order by the Bishop, j
seated in a large chair in the altar, just he- j,
fore the pulpit. After prayers, the commit- t
tec retired; and a minute afterwards enter- P
cd, conducting the man whom all delighted ^
to honor. They led him to the Bishop's n
chair, which was made vacant for him, the i
Bishop meanwhile occupying auother place
within the altar.
"The secretary was directed to call the v
names of the members of Conference, which 1
he did in alphabetical order, each coming "
forward and receiving from the Bishop a
personal introduction to the ex-President, i
and immediately retiring to give place to J
the next. The ceremony had nearly been j!
completed, when the secretary read the name
of Rev. James T . An elderly gentleman ^
with a weather-beaten face, clad in a suit of A
jeaus, arose and came forward. Few seemed ^
to know him. He had always been on circuit,
on the frontier; and though always at 1]
Conference, he never troubled it with long f
*11
speeches, but kept his seat, and said but lit- i ^
tie?that little, however, was always to the jj
purpose. Mr. T. came forward, and was in- f
troduced to General Jackson. lie turned Jj
his face towards the General, who said, 'It
seems to me that we have met before.' The C
preacher, apparently embarrassed, said: 'I Jj
was with you through the Creek campaign ^
?one of your body guard at the battle of C
Horse Shoe?and fought under your com- C
mand at New Orleans.' The General arose ^
slowly from his seat, and throwing his long, E
withered, bony arms around the preacher's 1
neck, exclaimed : 'We'll soon meet where t
there's no w;ir?where the smoke of battle
never rolls up its sulphurous incense !'
'Never before or since, have I seen so ?
many tears shed as then flowed forth from
the eyes of that vast assembly. Every eye C
was moist with weeping.
"Eleven years have passed away since
that day. The old hero has been more than
ten in his silent and narrow home. The
voice that cheered the drooping fight, and
thundered in the rear of routed armies is
silent forever. The old preacher, too, has
fought his last battle, laid his armour by,
and gone home to his eternal rest."
VALUE OF PUBLICITY.
Notoriety or publicity is an indispensable
element of success in the merchant, mechanic
or manufacturer, who would give a speedy
and wide distribution to the commodities and
productions which lie seeks to exchange for
money. He may have capital, skill, conve
nicnt position, punctuality, industry and
honesty?every possible fitness for his business?and
all is nothing if he have not sufficient
notoriety. This notoriety, let it cost
more or less, lie must purchase or provide
for as carefully as he purchases or manufactures
his stock of goods. And it must in extent
bear a certain relation to the business ^
he would do. He must be most positive and
comparative. People must not only know
him and his business, because otherwise they \
will not find him, but they must know him,
because otherwise they will find and trade
with those who are better known. Customers,
like sheep, are gregarious, and flock
where they see others flocking. If nobody
else were engaged in the same business, it
would be important for our dealers to advertise
in the newspapers, because people are
tempted to buy what they read of. It is like d
a salesman with several thousands of voices,
speaking politely of our wares to tens of
thousands of people, perhaps at the same
moment, never offending, never obtrusive, ^
never tired?such a salesman might be worth
one, two, three, or five thousand dollars a a
year to you, according to the uumber of his 0
voices. n
J5ut if others are engaged in the same bu- e
siness, even if thry do not advertise, it be- f
comes the more important for our dealers to "
do so, and if they do advertise, it is doubly j.'
important. It is, in fact, ruin not to be 1 c
known as extensively as our rivals. v

An Unfortunate Traveler.?A Mr. 1j
Watson, of St. Louis, commenced an unfor- t]
lunate career of railroad travel last summer, |
at the time of the Gasconade disaster, at!11
which he nearly lost his life. Scarcely had ' sl
he recovered from the injuries then received, ! k
when lie again narrowly escaped death, i01
from an accident which occurred to the train i
while he was coming East. lie was laid up '
for some months at the Girard House, in j 1
Philadelphia, on account of the injuries re- j ?
ccivod. As soon as SLhciently recovered, | c
he took passage for Pittsburgh. Some gen- j ii
tlemcn who intended to go in the same di-1 ?
l ection, purposely'dclayed their departure, in 1"
order to avoid participating in his apprehend- ! b
cd misfortunes. But as it singularly occur- ; 11
red, Mr. Watson's train met with an accident
after proceeding a few miles, slight indeed, v
but sufficient to detain thp train for several ?
hours; and before arriving at Harrisburg a : lf
second accident occured, with a detention of I
24 hours, In the meantime, the cautious a
gentlemen before alluded to, pursuing their
journey, overtook Mr. W., and unwittingly
got on the same train for Pittsburgh. Be- fore
reaching its destination, however, the 1
fated train was thrown entirely from the
track by the breaking of a wheel. The passengers
alighted, and, greately to their consternation,
found that Mr. W. (Jonah) was j
on board. Thereupon the whole company ?
became greaty exasperated, and respectfully
informed the conductor that it would be _
utterly impossible to proceed in his company, J
Our informant states that Mr. W. has succeeded
in reaching Pittsburgh, and is re
overingfrom his confusions, at the Monon- j
ahela House. Mr. W. declares that once i
noro at home, he will remain there. j ?<
A Wife's Repartee.?"My dear Polly,
atn surprised at your taste in wearing an- I
ther woman's hair on your head," said Mr. j
Smith to his wife. j u
'My dear Joe, I am equally astonished |s
hat your persist in wearing aunihrr shrrjt'n ^
root on your back." o
Poor Smith sneaked out. a

PROPOSALS
FOR TIIF. PUBLICATION OF
IMS I TIE SEW TESTAMENT,"
IIV REV. WM. c. LA VIS.
rlllS work is to be printed on good paper, in
plain type, well-bound in sheep, in lour vol
mes supcr-royai octavo?each volume containing
ix or seven hundred pages; ami will be furnished
a subscribers at TWO DOLLARS per volume, to
e paid to the Publisher's Agent on the delivery
f the work. The publication will be put to press
s soon as fifteen hundred copies are taken. Proosals
have been printed, and placed in the hands
f Agents, who will proceed to canvass for the
rork.
Inasmuch as application for patronage will be
aade to the reading portion of the community in
his and the adjoining Districts, justice alike to the J
uterprise and to those who are asked to favor it, '
lemands that some account be given of its chancer.
It is the work of a Divine of acknowledged taint
and scholarship, of piety and success in the
ilinistry; of one who devoted himself to the stilly
of the Scriptures, and the preaching of the
lospel for upwards of forty years, with anassiduty
so intense, as to preclude him almost entirely
rom the secular cares and pursuits, common to
nany in the sacred office. The voluminous proluctions
of his pan thatnow lie in manuscript, heIdes
his Lectures on the New Testament, bear
estimony to the zeal and industry with which he
irosecutcd his Theological researches, until witlin
a few years of his death. In the Lectures
rhich we here recommend to the favorable regard
if the publicLthe reader is presented with a hnr
nony of tlie Four Gospels, a clear and consistent
xposition of the Sacred Text, and a large num>er
of Critical Notes and observations on obscure
,nd difficult passages, and on important points in
loctrinal Divinity. The grand design of the auhor
evidently is, to assist his reader to acquire J
. sound and accurate understanding of the Mind J
if the Spirit, imparted in the Sacred Oracles, v
vhatever sacrifice of his own prepossessions, or
he prejudices of others, it may have cost him.
The style of the work is purely didactic?simile
and inornate?seeking rather to instruct, than
;o please the taste. Much, however, will be found
n the perusal of the Commentary, to delight the
lamest student of the Scriptures; but that pleaslrc
will result, chiefly, from the unexpected and
vonderful manifestations which are furnished, of
he perfect harmony of all the parts in the grand
chcmcof salvation; their indissoluble connection,
md their iutimate dependency upon each other,
rom the eternal foundation, to the topmost stone
n the imperishable edifice. The writer of this
irief notice has given some portion of his time to
he study of the Bible, and to the perusal of Coraaenlaries
and writings on Divinity, and he is contrained
to acknowledge, that he feels much inlebted,
under Qcd, to these Lectures, for the comort
and satisfaction with which he is enabled to
ead the New Testament Scriptures, especially the
Ipistolarv portions of them. Persuaded that
thcrs may be equally profited, be takes pleasure
11 recommending the work to the favorable notice
f his fellow Christians every where, and pnrticularf
to that of Ministers of the Gospel, and Students
i Divinity. While the plain and humble lover of
lie Bible will be furnished with a safe and familir
assistant to a correct knowledge of the rtre
ious part of Divine Revelation, on which these
.cctures arc written, and will find himself instrucjd,
encouraged, and comforted in Christ, the
'ublic Teacher of religious Truth will find in these
olumes a treasure, ffcom which he may draw largey,
to the increase of his own spiritual wealth, the
dification of the Church, and the salvation of
ouls.

fHE WASHINGTON SPECTATOR.
rHE SPECTATOR IS PRINTED IN TIIE
Quarto form, on a double royal sheet of supeior
paper; and is devoted to belles lettres, and
cientific and miscellaneous intelligence. Tinim
of the publisher is to make it a welcome visior
to ever household, where sound knowledge and
orrcct moral sentiment can be appreciated.?
Vith this view he eschews all the senseless twadlle,
under the name ofliterature, which serves ony
to beguile idle moments; and strives to confine
lie matter of the SPECTATOR, to that which will
rave useful impressions on the minds of its readrs.
Besides a large weekly amount of matter apropriate
to papers purely literary the SPECTA'OR
contains summaries of government doings in
longress and the Executive Departments; the
mportant news of the day. foreign and domestic;
cviews of finance and markets; notices of new
ooks, new discoveries in art and science; new
aventions, including a weekly list cf patents isued
from the Patent Office; articles on education;
n agriculture, business and domestic economy;
nd candid essays upon the leading topics of the
ay.
Though entertaining for themselves decided
iews on questions of political economy nnd religrius
belief, the editors do not purpose to give to (
he paper a partizan or a sectarian character ?
'he discussion of these subjects they leave for paicrs
established for such purpose. At the same
iine they reserve to theraselve the right to expose
ypocrisy, and to oppose bigotry and fanaticism
11 all forms; and of offering, whet, they deem ocasion
to require it, their opinions and reasons
lierefor on seperate questions involving the intecsts
and vested rights of the people among whom
re are located, without thereby subjecting themclvcs
to a charge of violating any pledge.
One of the editors (Mr. Hayne,) will remain for
