BUCHANAN READ Mow and aloof, Over the tool, How the tempests swell and roar! Though no foot is astir, Though the cat and the cur Eie dozing along the kitchen floor, There arc feet ol air On every stair! Through every hall Through each gutty door, There's a jostle and bustle, Willi a silken rustic, -Like the meeting of guests at a festival . Alow and aloof, Over the roof, How the stormy tempests swell ! And make the vane On the spire complain They heave at the steeple with might and main; And burst and sweep Into the bcllrey OB the bell 1 . They smite it so hard, and they. mile it so well, That the sexton tosses his arms in sleep And dreams he is ringing a funeral knell. MISCELLANEOUS. Farmer snug and Farmer slack—the Contrast. I have lately made some observations upon Ike difference between farmers, which, with yom leave. I should like to lay before your - ''in"'..; first place, let us examine the pre- of a wod farmer. His burns and out-, n,,a, , are a Perfect model of neatness, buildings a e a ?

Ask him to tuke an agricultural paper and mark his answer ninety-nine cases out of one hundred him or his prototype will tell you no I want nore of your liook-farmituj. He is contented to go on in the suinc routine of life his father did before him. To such I WOtlld say, of the two, give me the book farnic-, for thut is the kind of fanning for mc. Moreover, I would nsk what is it that makes the difference between the two farms I have represented. One lakes an agricul tural journal and studies his p-ofession, while the other dees not. The contrast is drawn from facts which have lately come under my observation, and are not exaggerated. AUGUSTUS. Woman's Ru;hts. We hear much doleful croaking from the ill-favored and ill-conditioned portion of the "fair sex" of the rights and wrongs of women. Antiquated spinsters, and unhappy wives of husbaiMtawho are the "weaker vessels," with a few Editorial "old women in breeches," fill the ears and the newspapers of the world with a constant clamor of their woes and wants. In no country in the world are women so well and tenderly treated as in the United States. Morally, socially, and intellectually, they are the acknowledged equals of men. In politics only are they regarded as ciphers in the States. And yet these noisy champions of "woman's rights" arc insisting upon the monstrous absurdity of enacting laws to make female voters, and .of revolutionizing public opinion toa point that shall make seacaptuins nnd military generals of the "strongminjed women" of the nation. The day that woman draggles her petticoats in the mire of politics, and mingles with the rowdy influences of the bullot-box, the in stitution of marriage will be at an end, and society will rapidly relapse into barbarism. Woman has her rights, as well as her duties; but they do not lie in this direction. She has a right to be beautiful; a right to be pro tected; a right to exercise her conjugal af fections and her maternal instincts; n right to reign in our hearts, but not on our thrones. Her duties are, to nurse and to nurture, to mould and to educate; to love and bless and adorn the world. She was not made to lead armies, to sway sceptres, to command ships. Her true "sphere" is purely a domestic one;1 her true home is by our hearths and in our ; hearts; and we boldly assert that there never has been, since the pleasant morning when Eve first bloomed in Eden, a well-formed, harmoniously developed woman w ho has i sighed or sought for any other "sphere" in i which to move or reign. There does not' exist on the earth to-day a woman who is beautiful and healthy, loving and beloved, happy, and imparting happiness, that is notj entirely contented to leave politics to men, and the wrongs of women to be mitigated tt righted by the softening and elevating in fluences of education and religion. Ar. Y. Mirror. Frozen Potatoes. The Rural New Yorker says that a potato, if frozen, and immediately put into cold wa ter, does not recover, but is totally changed, and becomes a flaccid sack of unsavory, gum my matter, of a very disagreeable odor its original properties entirely changed or lost; but if, while in a frozen state, they are thrown one by one into the water constantly boiling, they are no way affected, and are as edible as when first taken from the earth. This is an anomaly to the action of the cold, which may be true when applied to othervegetahles, of which we are unadvised, but it is a fact worth knowing, as it may on some occasion meet the necessities of almost every family, especially in those countries where cellars are difficult of construction. Tolerance of l'rokslant Clergymen in l'ar i$. Hev. Dr. Cook, Wesleyan preacher in l'aris, was sometime since threatened by the commissary of police with a prosecution it his meeting was not closed. He addressed a let ter to the prefect, in which he said, "I had the honor of replying to Mr. Commissary that I could not give up the ministry, and that I should that same evening preside at the public worship which takes place at our chap el." No further steps have been taken a gainst him, though whether the prosecution has been abandoned or only postponed, is left to conjecture. fj7"jAn Ingenione trick lias been twice practiced upon the famous and fushionable liouse of the Stewarts in New York. About a year since, a well-dressed lady called in and selected u shawl, the price of which was ijjSfiOO. She handed out n thousand dollar bill, which i the clerk questioned. She took it back, and . appeared to he indignant, when on reflection she handed over another and genuine bill on : the same bank, and requested that it betaken to a bank. This was done, and the bill pro ' nouueed to be genuine. The lady then put it In her purse, shaking her pretty head omi nously at' thrj clerk who had dared to insinuate that her money was not god. She started to go out, the poor clerks making all sorts of , apologies. But on reflection, she returned the shawl pleased her it was so very beauti ful sho would not permit her excited 'cellngl to deprive her of an article that pleased her bo well. She would have the shawl put up. The smiling clerk had it ready in a jiffy. She handed out u thousand dollar bill on the same . bank--tlie clerk thought it was the same. , They gve her tjj)400 change and the fair one left withhe shawl and the change. On muk . ing a deposHjn the afternoon, however, they , founiJ that tlierrHLwas a straight ouLuiimrr feit. The lady had sTTillHtl lllft'good and bad to suit her own purposes, coolly leaving the , bad one in the hands of the Stewarts carry I ing oil' their $100 of good money and their rich shawl. A few weeks since we are in , formed, the same fine trick was again played ,on the same house, the only difference being , that the beautiful ludy on this occasion took 1 two 8700 shuwla, left two ono thousand counterfeit notes, and received back 100 in good cash in change. Hartford Times. Excitement in Wellsville. We learn from the Wellsviile Patriot that quite an excitement prevails in that town, caused by the premature death of two citizens from intemperance. This together with an attack by delirium tremens of some two or three, so outraged the feelings of the citizens that they turned out in htrn numbers on Friday evening last and marched down to L S. Cope's grocery, where, it was thought, the inhabitants obtain ed their principal supplies of whiskey. So great was the exritement, and so great the out-burst of popular indignation, that many feared the Mob Law, with all its horrors, wt,s about to reign, lietter counsels however pre vailed, and tho crowd separated nfter putting an injunction upon Cope not to sell any more Whiskey. On Saturday night the crown a gain assembled and visited all the doggeries, giving the owners notice that (hoy must quit the liquor tnific, or abide the consequences. The citizensof Wcllsvillehave been moved to this course by the titter lameness and in cotnpatacity of their State Laws. If the laws will not help them to expel the grog shops, they are determined to do it themselves. Pitts. Gazette. John G. Saxe, says many witty things in rylime, and not always Without a moral. Here is one of his 'drives' at Proud Flesh: Because you flourish In worldly ufl'airs, Don't be haughty and put on airs With Insolent pride of station! Dori'l be proud, and turn up your n:tso At poorer people, in plainer clothes, But learn lor the s ike ofyonr Blinds repose. That Wealth's a babble that comes and goes! Anil that all Proud Flesh, whatever il grows, Is subject to irritation. BvoqT.

The prospects for a speedj tenaijaifon of this great enterprise are no i TTsTlattering as tho most sanguine can desire This is owing in a great measure to thi activity of the officers and employers of thi company. Its President, James Means. Esq. has Bhown himself equal to the arduous duties his office imposes upon him. Hi management has been wise, and his energy untiring. He has given an importan impetus to the work by his great experience I und tact. In J. lllickcnderfer, Esq.

The services of, our townsman, Mr. Frazor, who was among, if not the first, who originated the enterprise u ho has devoted his time, mind ami vlgtf to the successful completion of the road, cannot be forgotten, He has rendered important Hold services, and performed, we believe, with Mt is far lion to tho company, the very Important services entrusted him. In fact the whole corps of engineers and officers employed, j together with the board of Directors, deserve the highest commendation of all interested in this work. Herald. RAILWAY MATTERS. j The rail is now down on the Indianapolis road to Union, connecting the line from this city by Dayton and Greenville. Daily trains are advertised to run regularly from Lafayette and Terra Haute by Indianapolis to Cincin nati, in one day, commencing n the 1st of February.

Herald. Some of the Cincinnatians are strongly in ; favor of abandoning the WMWater canal ' and building a railway in its stead. This, We thiol;, would be a gootl change, provided ; they could secure it ugainst floods, which ! have always been the ruintion,of the canal. The Ohio and Mississippi Railway begins ' to make quite show in the tray of an embank inent through the bottom, between the Miami river and this place.

A call of the Senate for information lately brought to light from the Executive archives a brief correspondence in ISiO between Sir H. L. Rulwer, British Embassador, and Hon. I John H. Clayton, then Secretary of State, i I wherein It 'WSI agreed that the Nicaragua! Treaty, just before negotiated between them, did not affect cither w ay the rights of the British to the Ualize territory called by them ' British Honduras, Hereupon Mr Clayton &.i . the Whigs in power were vehemently assail-j I ed by certain Democratic leaders in the, Senate os having betrayed Ameriran in-! terests, truckled to Great Britain, and privately signed away ull thut the Nicaragua Treaty , I intended to secure and all that secured their . assent to the Treaty, , Thus r ' assailed, Mr. Clayton submit-j ted to the ; c a brief correspondence he ! had, In July, 1850, on this very subject, with : Hon. Wm R. King, then Chairman of the ; Senate's Committee of Foreign Affairs,! wherein Mr. King fully and unequivocally affirmed that the Nicaragua Treaty wob dis- linctly understood by the Senate not to af-j ! feet in any manner the British title or claim (whatever it may be) to that they cail Briii.h Honduras. j The vindication did not stop' here. Gov. Seward followed up Mr. Clayton! stagpring blow by showing that Cien. Taylor, had, just ; before his death, sent a Message to the Senate, , officially apprising them that the Nicaragua j j Treaty did not affect nor contemplate the: British claims to the Baliie, and that The National Intelligencer, when publishing the I Treaty, gave a semi-official exposition of it, asserting the same thing. There was more i I testimony to the same point but what need of it! " j Since tnen, Messrs. Cass, Sou'e, ccc. have , been anxiously seeking some escape from the dilemma in w hich they bed recklessly Involv ed themselves, by persevering attempts to in-' volve the question in the smoke of false! j issues. That the 'Bay slsnds,' offllonduras, which Great Britain has recently assumed to ' j make a Colony ol, are no part of the Balizet I territory that the rights of Groat Britain at , j the Balize i:re iliusury or Untitled or only possessory and temporary that her ter ' oto' uJ. pH!teu-i"ii- io that quarter have been I unwarrantably extended that fhe has not in ! I other respects complied with her stipulations , in the Nicaragua Treaty that she ought ere j this to have w ithdrawn from the Mosquito I territory, dtc, &C. have all beu asserted I and talked about, with the obvious intent of I ' breaking the force of Mr. King's letter and, the testimony as to the cotemporaneous e.x-j ' position of the Nicaragua Treaty embodied j in Gov. Seward's Speech. Gentlemen! it won't do! You have made j an unwarrantable onslaught on Mr. Clayton j and the Administration of which he forni 'd a; ' part, and have been singally discomfited. Voul I have not a leg left to stand on. And you will i not be able to draw the Whigs into the posi-j 1 tion of apologists for any actual Infringement! of the N icaragua Treaty vvirch Great Britain ; I has been guilty of. All the complaints you now make are founded on the provisions of I that very Nicaragua Treaty yon now proclaim ; j so worthless, unless it includes the Balize. f j Great Britain has violated the Treaty, hold ! her to a strict responsibility! You have already both branches, and will soon have the Executive also. Hake her justify or retract her alleged seizure of the Bay islands, her failure to abandon her Mosquito protege, ' &c, &.C., but do not seek to cover your retreat from the Clayton foray by any sham fight with her. And do not further reiterate the : falsehood that Mr. Clayton has conceded the , British supremacy at the Balize. Whatever rights Great Britain muy have had before the Nicaragua Treaty she still pussesses, and nothing more. If she had none then, she I I has noi:o now; if she had only a temporary right to cut logwood belore, she has no more ' since. Settle one question at a time, and all will bo clear; but don't go dodging under every log and root, like a fish with a hook in , his tlirout. A'. Y. Tribune. I Monongalia Iron Works. We are grat 1 ified to learn that these works, with the lands I and appurtenances thereunto attached, were sold a lew days since, by M. Gay, Esq., to I Messrs. Samuel McKelvey & Frederick I). Kay, of Pittsburgh, for the neat sum of $35, i 000 which is a clever advance on the last preceding purchase, and yet much below the . intrinsic value of the property, i The present owners are said to bo gen'le- men of large capital and to posess an amount , 1 of energy and enterprise, that will ensure the I successful prosecution of the important branch , of industry to which they have turned their . attention. They have already taken posaes I sion, and are preparing to make Iron on an I : extensive scale. The Spring-Hill Furnace is in full blast I running day and night, and turning out a large quantity of metal. We hear it rumored that somebody has I been looking at Clinton Furnace, on Booth's - Creek, with a view to its resuscitation; and . that there is a talk of putting Rock Forge in - motion at early day.

Mrrrantown Mirror. From the Ohio State Journal. OHIO LOCOFOCOISM ABROAD. The New York Herald has a correspond ent in this city, who gives the following graphic sketch of the Eighth of January Con vention. We trust, every Loco!oco in Ohio will read it. It is rich: Cott7BO,OhtO, Jan. 10, 1C3. BcTamblt for Qtice Th Parties mj their Lei t'en I'clit ioi I Episode. I would tba' you could have been here on the 8th, to hat e w ItMssssJ one of the richest and most exciting political Bcenes which had transpired in many a day. The "Buckeye" democracy were out in their urengtb. "Old Hunkero" in abundance were here for days before the convention, bowing and scraping, and tottering around Ihe "young 'iins," drop ping the promises of crumbs into their open mouths w ith great liberality. It is said that every office in this State in liie gift of the in coming Administration has been promised dOBe Us of times to d.zms srf applicants. In fact, the contest, th.-u.'ii local in form, has been national in its character. Ostensibly, it WSJ for nominating a candidate for gover nor, and other Stale officers; but in fact it has turned on the question, which brunch of the democracy shall have the ear of the Presi dent elect. The first branch is headed by the Hon. Wil liam Allen, of whom you have heard, or might have heard, at any time when he was in the Senate, within five miles of Washington Ci ty; he is generally known by the name of "Bill Allen" here, but sometimes is ca'led ' Earth quake Allen," and Sometimes, "Colonel Al len," by those who want office and have vet to learn of his pobticaljfaM. : He''is the same renowned Senator who was killed bt Critten den, und who gave up his place ns Chairman of the committee on Foreign Relation--. I suppose you know by this time w hom I mean. Well, he heads one branch of the democraf'o party o! Ohio, and around him gathered all the "old fagiee" who want offi;e under Pierce's administration, such as Sawver. sometimes known as "Sausage Sawver," Wilson Shannon, w ho, you know, went on. .; tO California, and others of u similar cast, whom the peopie had DlOOtly forgot, until they now creep out from their dens, in which they have laid in a torpid state for some t ears, hoping that President Pierce w ill sm:le npon them, and warm them into existence. These all rallied round Medlll as their candidate fur Governor. The other branch are the kiting, breathing, soul-stirring.'-go-ahead" younj Democrats of Ohio. These are headed by Hon. G. W. Ma ny penny, who wii their candidate for Goer nor. He is an acting, working, honest man, fit for any place in the government w here ho nesty, Intelligence and labor are needed. He has the heart of the masses '.hey all but worship him. These men cam? in contact at the State Convention last year, when delegates were appointed to the National Con.en ion. Prob ably you never heard of it in New York, but here, in Ohio, it was known that Allen was a candidate for President, because he told uz so himself. Well, at this convention Bfany penny carried off the laurels, Alien had r.j Votes f'-r President. Alter this he was "dead er" than ever; but, as I am saying, he came forth again from the cavern with other "old fogies," to warm himself in the liht of Pierce's countenance. By rallying the can didates for Marshal, Colleotorships, Post Offi ces, &.C., he collected a formidable band n gainst the hard-listed yeomanry, to whom he promised offices with the Utmost assurance, declaring, to I'.se his own strong and nervous language, -I know General Pierce, Sir, I know every fibre of his heart; my promises will be fulfilled." The contest was very doubtiul for several days. At length Gover nor Wo. id, (whose term of holding office will soon expire in Ohio, and stay expired, and whose eyes are therefore turned Washington ward, feeling sure of success, whatever may be the character of Pierce's administration, having been on one siJo of the Fugitive bill in his inaugural, and on the other side in his message) I say, at length he threw his in fluence in with the other old fogies, and they succeeded by a majority of two votes in no:n mating Mcdill, although ail the other candi dates nominated were Uaneypenny'e friends, and the men of his choice. You should have seen ihe tall Senator then nuking his strides for the telegrapli office, and. on "lightning's .t ings," went the news to Washington und Concord of his victory. But, ulas! the joy was too great to long endure. The commit tee on Resolutions reported; the Baltimore platform was given the "go by." The object of this was quickly apprehended by Col. Manypenny and his friends. The principles ot the national democracy were to be sacrificed, to render sure the success of the Allen ticket, by conciliating the freesoil ers. This was not to be endured. The President of the Convention, a wa-m friend of Col. Manypenny, and of the principles of the Baltimore platform, which had carried Pierce so successfully through the campaign, and others who felt like maintaining the na tionality of the party, had u resolution intro duced endorsing that platform. The resolution was drawn up and introduced by Mr. Jewelt chairman of tho Muskingum delegation Manypenny 's own county. Such a fluttering you never saw; if adopted, the vision of de. feat, through anti-slavery influence, rose be fore Allen and his party in great terror; if no adopted, the fear of lost Influence at Wash ington made their knees quake un I tremble. So, like all men who lack nerve and princi pie, they struck for a middle course, ued lu it the Baltimore platform upon the table; am there it lies, bleeding beneath the stabs o these i. u n, who ure promising offices in tin name of Pierce, and upon the ground that the; "know every fibre uf his hear!;" and in thi place of this platform they inserted the cele brated Ohio anti-slavery resolutions, whicl at all points aro at war uith tho Ualtlmor MtolntioM. It is yet to be seen whether this coursowlll receive the approbation of the I powers thst ere soon to be. a : emsrksble coincidence in this case exists in the fact jthst the vote by which the Baltimore platform was laid upon the table varies only two in number from that by w Sich Medill 'was nom mated. , In all this Itrofg).
