THE OLD OAK.

Shske, shake thy lirad in the wind,
And rustle and wail. Old Tree,
And nen, when they think of thy glories gone,
Will feel for thy fall with mo.
But they never can feel for thee,
Old Oak, as a Poet can ;
For he hath the heart to break
And they have the heart of man
The cold and stony heart,
And the earthy soul within
That owna no (Jod savo tho Idol Self
No priest, save the priest of sin.
Now, tho Poet's heart is warm
And spurneth the clayey clod
Is warm with the love of the Rood of Life,
, And fresh from the hand of Uod.
And ho will say, Old Oak.
That, though so old and grey,
Thy branches sung a gleesomu son;
In tho merry month of May
Thnt, in tho hot July.
They made a pleasant shade
For tho way-worn wanderer, as he strode
Along the sweltering glade
That August saw the cattle sleep
Uciicath. thy branches green,
Whsro the warbling wood-bird fed its young
In the depth of their emerald sheen.
And ho will sing, Old Oak,
Of a thousand things like these,
And spread thy fame on the wings of song,
Away o'er an hundred seas
And ho will lovo thee will,
And n Poet's love is worlh
The richest gems and the reddest gold
Of tho senseless churls of earth.
8o, shake thy head in the wind,
And rustle and whistle, old tree,
To the withering blast n.i it surges by,
A note of thy olden glee.
T1BB LAND OF WASHING TO.
I glory in the sages,
Who, in the days of y ore,
In combat met the focman,
And drove them from our shore ;
Who flung our banner's starry field,
In triunip t the hreozn,
And spread broad maps of cities where,
Once waved the forest trees.
Hurrah
I glory in the spirit
Which goaded thorn to rise,
And found a mighty nation
beneath the western skies.
No clime so bright and beautiful
As that where sets the sun ;
No land so fertile, fuir and freo
As that of Washington.
Hurrah o. r.
ADDRESS.
. Of the Committee appointed by the iMing of the
' . Citizens of Philadelphia in Ifie District Court
Room, Philadelphia, the 28.'A day if Scptemlirr,
t - 1313, to the Americana residing in Oregon Ter
ritory.
. Friends and Fellow-Citizens : Al
t' though you are removed to a great dis
tance, you are not forgotten. Many hun
dreds of miles separate us, but in feelings
we are one and indivisible. Your brothers
' -' on this side of the Rocky Mountains have
heard of your wrongs, and tliey sympathize
in your sufferings. They have listened,
in sorrow and with indignation, to the de-
" ' tails of the impositions that have been
N practised upon you upon American citi
zens, upon American ground by our
foreign rival and their chartered agents ;
practised (hitherto) with impunity. We
exhort you, fellow citizens, to bear up
f amidst these manifold privations and griev
V ances. Remember the l ist words of the
" brave and faithful Lawrence "Dont give
" ' up the Ship." We would disdain to ask
you to crouch to your oppressors, that
' would be unworthy of Americans, but
we earnestly counsel you to forbear, as
long as possible, to make forcible resis
tance in the hope -no, not in the hope
in the certainty, that your country will
como to the rescue ; and that the dav of
retribution is not far distant. We have
heard of your petition to bo taken under
tho protection of Congress ; ami wo have
participated in your surprise and sorrow
that your prayer has not been granted.
'Justice (fellow-citizens) has iron hauls :
but she has leaden feel!" If Congress
fail to take you under her protection, the
People (they who made Congress) will
not fail to do so. Fear not, it is not in
tho nature of things in this enlightened
age, that an independent nation, like the
United States, should allow her sovereign
ly to be invaded, her flag trampled upon
and her citizens maltreated. When the
British Parliament passed a law, authori
zing the members of the Hudson Bay
Company to arrest Americans, within their
own territory, to be sent to Canada, to be
4 itried upon British ground, before British
. , . Judges and by British laws, they laid the
foundation stone of their own ejection
-.;jrom Oregon. When the same Parlia
ment granted to the Hudson Bay Compa
ny. our land in Oregon,, which they (the
' IIudson.Bay Company) are now parcel-
I T Logout to; their adherents, they might

V : "ted. .Had Great Britain been a little
' j irriore modest a little more moderate the
tfnited States ever averse to war, might
June allowed their just title to Oregon to
liaye slumbered a little longer; ; but the ar-
jfoganco nd orerbearance of the Lion has
jrouped the Eaglo." Great Britain lias awa
,a ktrfcd the people' of this republic, and for
' , C(d them to look into the claims to that
Perritory, and with that examination every
one has been perlectly sali-slieJ. J lie
North, and South, the East and the West,
are now thoroughly convinced that Eng
land has not the shadow of claim to anv
portion of that country ; but that it be
longs, of right, to us. This first step was
a wise one ; for unless wo have rigit up
on our side, the United States should lav
no claim to Oregon. We complain of the
rcssions of other nations; we ought
therefore, to stand up before tliu world,
with clean hands. But once satisfied that
our title is just, wc can afford to take high
ground.
" Thrice is he armed who has his quarrel just."
Tor this reason, all that England's ablest
advocates had said upon this important
subject was maturely considered, the let
ter of 'a distinguished member of Parlia
ment,' and tho statements of the British
Plenipotentiaries, have been published.
Both sides have been fully heard. Equal
justice has been administered. The argu
ments, for and against, have all been
weighed in the same balance, end those
of our adversaries have been found wan
ting. Their claims and pretensions are
contradictory their assertions are unfoun
ded in fact, and reasoning is unsound.
They have displayed at every step errors
and discrepancies, easily detected by the
unbiassed, but which, we regret to say,
there are men of high standing among
them who cither do not, or who affect not
to notice. They appear to be utterly
blind-folded, and rush headlong to the
possession of the country in dispute, con
trary to reason and the law of nations.
But these errors and discrepancies will not
be lost sight of before the great tribunals
of public opinion of other nations ; and
we even hope that the wise and tho good
of their own country, the recent pointing
of them out, will not be entirtly unavail
ing.
On the other hand, the title of tho Uni
ted Slates to Oregon is plain, simple, and
conclusive ; any one tho least accustomed
to matters of this character cannot fail to
understand it.
Having established the right of the Uni
ted Stales to this Territory, Americans
were not tardy in finding out that it was
of vast importance to every portion of the
people of the Union to possess, unmoles
ted, those broad lands in this delightful re
gion of country.
It was not a mere desire to possess
more ample territory. No indeed ; we
have ground enough, without Oregon, to
gratify the most ambitious. It was to
give to us and to our posterity a shorter
and easier route to the East Indies ; to
furnish us with a direct and safe transit to
China and the rich Isles adjacent; and
to tin J us a market for our lead, our lum
ber, our peltries, and our manufactures of
various kinds. It was to insure to the
numerous citizens concerned in our valua
ble whale fisheries, a safe and commodi
ous harbor for their vessels; and, above
all, it was to keep at a distance insidious,
grasping and dangerous neighbors, who
are surrounding us with a cordon of forts ;
who are standing between us and our nat
ural western boundary, the Pacific Ocean.
There arc many oilier cogent reasons,
which will be obvious to you, who arc re
siding in Oregon, to urge upon us to in
sist upon our just right to that Territory.
What is to be done ? make anolhei treaty
with Ureal Britain ? We want no treaty.
Wc might as well make a treaty about
Philadelphia! Makowar! We desire no
war; but when war comes we must meet
it, as we must all other evils, like men
like freemen. c wish to ncllle the coun
try. Let 30,000 Americans, cacli man
with a stout heart in his bosom and a good
ri:4c iii his hand, emigrate to Oregon, and
we shrill have no war. The Hudson Bay
Company amounts to less than a thousand
souis, all told, and would, in a very few
years be lost amidst the population from
the Atlantic States. The Hudson Bay
Company are a lFur Company,' and as
soon as the Territory shall be settled by
the agriculturist from the States, and the
fur bearing animals become extinct, or
even sensibly diminished, the Hudson
Bay Company will seek in California, or
the more northern regions of America,
now claimed by Russia, countries more
adapted to their pursuits. Should any of
them turn agriculturalists, and wish to re
main in Oregon, let them do so ; provided
they will conform to the just and equal
laws of the United States.
. But how, and by whom, is this emigra
tion and settlement to be effected! If
Congress will do two things the emigra
tion to Oregon and the settlement thereof
will follow, as naturally, aye, and as irre
sistibly, as water (lows down an inclined
plane.
1st. Let Congress make a military road
from the Missouri river, near the mouth
of the Platte, to tho mouth of the North
fork of that river, and thence by that fork
to the South pass of tho Rocky Moun
tains; and through the same,' to Lewis'
river, and by Lewis' river to the Colum
bia river, and it will be thronged with em
igrants from tho Atlantic Slates, always
ready to seek new abodes in the West.
At the distance of each day's journey,
along this road, let block houses be erec
ted, where the Star Spangled Banner,
floating in the air, shall proclaim, that the
weary wanderer may thcre'rest in perfect
security. Let Congress cause to be laid
out, on both Rides of this military road,
for a mile in depth, plantations of moder
ate size, to be awarded to those who shall
aid, for a given number of year, to make
this road and keep it in repair, and the
present generation may yet live to see the
prairies and the (so called) dcserl smiling
with grain fields, and supporting an in
dustrious and happy population of free
men.
2d. Let Congress pass a law taking all
Americans, who settle in Oregon, under
their protection, and providing good laws
for tho Government of the Territory, and
our countrymen, having no longer any
thing to fear from foreign oppression, will
flock there will cultivate the fine valleys
of the Columbin river, and introduce into
the whole territory the blessings of relig
ion, industry and peace.
Americans in Oregon yo pioneers of
the larthest W est cast your minds, eyes,
for one moment, into the future. Behold
the waters of thelalte and those of the
Lewis made navigable a Railroad of a
few miles connecting the head blanches
of these streams, thus, by the mighty
power of steam, uniting the two portions
of this great continent.
Imagine tho woods, which now echo
only the yell of the Indian, giving place
to farms, harmonious with the whistle of
the plough-boy, or the rherful song of the
husbandman as he garners his abundant
harvest.
See arising from tho ruins of Astoria, a
magnificent city an emporium of trade
a seat of manufactures and the arts a
patron for the sciences.
Behold the felonious Black feet, the
frightful Flathead s, and iho indomitable
Cumanches, casting away their bloody
tomahawks and entering-, together, the
house of God, and bending their knees, in
company with the white man, before the
throne of our holy Redeemer !
In a few years all these, which are to
us and yon so many dreams, will bo to
our children and our children's children
so many realities ; and then, as the future
people of Oregon arc assembled around
the festive board, celebrating the birth-day
of their independence, the first toast will
bo "the Congress of 1813- t , who
the foundation of all our happiness."
Ian!
From the Cincinnati Sun.
The Ainrrirmi !iiuic.
We hold a lofty place among the na
tions. Our star of empire has reached a
high place in the arch of fame, and if we
forget not the motto of those who laid the
corner stone of our temple, wc may and
shall soon shine in the empyrean of na
tional greatness. To become aware of our
true position among the powers that bo,
we have only to notice the manner in
which we arc regarded by them. Great
Britain looks on us with a jealous eye.
The American name produces a sensation
in England above that of any oilier pow
er. They 'affect to treat us, it is true, as
in every way their inferiors, but their
conduct proves that they fed their nation
al glory faiding in the increasing light of
the Star of the est.
The British Ensign is known through
out the whole earth ; the isles of the sea
know and fear it the Orientals know and
detest it ay, and one of the wings . that
supports the verv throne, now virbrates
ominously beneath tho cross of St.
George. But tho American name is
sounded with the voice of wonder, of ad
miration and respect on the tongues of
the Orientals, and by thoso who dwell on
the isles of the oceans. The Barbarians
lovo our flag the Algerine looks on it,
and remembers who taught him tho prin
ciples of justice and humanity, the Cel
estials look on it, and remember who
taught them tho folly of distrust and
treachery. Every where the American
name is known the lovely form of Free
dom is recognized. The millions who
bewail themselves the conquest of the
lied Dragon, begin now to awake. The
awakened eye beholds fetters that were
invisible, n certain steady glancing up
wards betokens a new conviction. Lib
erty ! liberty 1 shall it not yet fly with
the American name from cl'uno to clime,
till the whole earth shall be redeemed from
tho thrawl of dark brooding despotism!
Do not the sgns of promise speak great
things for the world through our example
and our influence ? Listen, a voice from
tho South Sea from tho Society Isles,
Tomare looks towards the North, and says
'Tho Americans 1 their Government
will endure, for it is good.' ' ,
- Hark I Thcro is music and fasting and
rejoicing in the East. The descendants
of the Gauls, the Huns, and the degene
rated countrymen of Demosthenes, cele
brate, with a few of our native born, the
birth of whom? Ah ! when his name is
spoken, shall it be said that the children
of Kings ever are blind to the glorious
principles of Liberty and Equality that
dwell in tho soul of tho Father of our
Country ? Washington's birlh-day has
been celebrated in Europe ; Princes have
honored it. Yes, the Genius of Liberty
bears the memory of Washington as a
shield before him, and tho fame of the
scourgor of tyrants shall never dio ; and
we if we cherish as we should the mem
ory of him who sleeps in the humble
tomb of Mount Vernon, shall live as a
nation, when kingdoms and thrones shall
have become as emty sounds, and when
the noble in soul shall be the only no
hility. Tho subjects shall have ceased
to beg for bredd in the midst of diamond
laden princes, and the nod of one mortal
shall no longer drench another land with
blood. It remains with us yet to say,
whether tho American name shall reach
a point of influence above that which
Rome in her proudest days could boast.
If we ever do our duty at home, with a
steadfast eye on the lesson and guiding
lamp which our fathers left us, an Ameri
can has but to say, when in a foreign
land, 'I am an American,' and he will be
greeted as a brother. Are these idle as
sertions, prompted by national pride
Glance back on our history, and reason
from what has been what may be. Wore
the prophetic words of one of our states
men, on the memorable day of 1770, idle
assertions ? '1 am for this Declaration,'
said he; "wo have but to streach fort I
our right hands and we may bo freemen,
and give to our posterity a day which
they shall hail as a day of jubilee, with
firing oP cannon, with illuminations, and
rejoicing.' We are that posterity and
what are wc now ? That day in the year
177G was a new era; a new burst of
light on the dark path of time.
Ambition was personified in Alexander,
in Ctrsar. in Napoleon, cruelty found a
temple in Sylla, in Nero j and philan
thropy in a Howard. But Freedom was
first represented by .the band that on the
Fourth of July, 1770, pledged life and
fortune and honor in her service. It was
then that the people of America were
christened the Independent J It was then
our namo began to excite pity in the
hearts of those of foreign powers, whose
eyes wrro open to the light of jsiiiice !
How different are llic feelings now inspir
ed within those who now contemplate our
position. It is no longer sympathy for
our wrongs. No. It is admiration !
Wo have attained a prerogative to say,
we will stand, even though the worid
pull us down, and destroy the ma
jesty of the Americon name. Wc need
fear no foes without. Countrymen, if we
arc not devided against ourselves, the
namo American may for ever stand against
the world.
nrlluu Kl.i,
I do not know when I have been more
affected by any narrative than by one I
have lately read, entitled "The Parting
Kiss." 'I was but five years old when
my mother died ; but her image is as dis
tinct to my recollection, now that twelve
years have elapsed, as it was at the time
of death. I remember her as a pale,
beautiful, gentle being, with a sweet
smile, and a voice that was soft and cheer
ful when she praised me; and when I
cried, for I was a wild thoughtless child,
there was a trembling mildness about it
that always went to my little heart. And
then she was so kind, so patient, methinks
I ran now seo her large blue eyes moist
with sorrow, becausoof my childish way
wardness, and hear her repeat: My
child how can you grievo me so ?" I re
collect she had for n long time been pale
and feeble, and that sometimes there
would come a bright spot upon her cheek
which made her look so lovely, that I
thought sbo must be well. But fhe
sometimes spoke of dying, and pressed
mo to her bosom, and told mo to be good
when she was gone, and to lovo my fa
ther a great deal, and be kind to him, for
he would have none ehc to love. I re
collect she was sick all day, and my little
hobby horse and whip lay aside, and I
tried to be very quiet. I did not see her
for the whole day, and it seemed very
long. At night they told me mother was
too sick to kiss me, as she always used
to before I went to bed, and I must go
without it. But I could not. , 1 stole into
tho room, and laying my lips close to
her's whispered 'mother mother won't
you kiss me ?' Her lips were very cold ;
and when slv put her arms around me,
laid my head upon her bosom, and one
hand upon my check. I felt a cold shud
dering creep over' me ; my father carried
mo from the room, but ho could not speak.
After they put nii in bed, I lay a long
time thinking I feared my mother would
die, for her cheeks felt so cold as my lit'
tie sister's did when she died, and they
laid her in the ground. But the impres
sions of mortality are always indistinct
in childhood, and 1 soon fell asleep.
In tho morning I hastened to my mo
ther's room. A while napkin covered her
face. I removed it it was just as I fear
ed. Her eves were (dosed her cheeks
were cold and hard, and only the lovely
expression, Hhat rested upon her lips, re
mained. In an instant all the little faults
for which fiho had ofien reproved me.
rushed upon my mind. I longed to tell
her how good I would always be, if she
would remain with me.
She was hurried, but my remember
anco of the funeral is indistinct : I only
retain the impressions which her precepts
and examples left upon my mind. I was
a passionate, headstrong boy t but I never
yielded to this turn of my disposition,
without fancying I saw her mild and tear
ful eye fixed upon me, just as she used
to do in life. And then, when I succeed
in overcoming it, her sweet smile of ap
probation beamed upon me and I was
happy. My whole character underwent
a change, even from the moment of her
death. Her spirit was forever with me
strengthening my good resolutions, and
weakening my propensity to evil I felt
that it would grieve tho gentle spirit, to
sec mo err, and I could not would not
do it. I was the child of her affection ;
I knew she had prayed and wept over
me, and that even on tho threshold of
eternity her affection for me had caused
her to linger, that she might pray for me
once more. I resolved to become all that
she could desire. The resolution I have
never forgotten it helped mc to subdue
the waywardness of childhood, protected
ni3 from the temptations of youth, and
will comfort and support mo through the
business of manhood. What ever there
is that is estimable in my character, t
owe to the impressions of goodness, made
upon my infant mind, by the exemplary
conduct and faithful instructions of my
excellent mother."
Dear children never forget this story.
Love your mothers. Be careful to do
nothing while the aro alive to (ill your
hearts with bitterness afier they are dead.
IJlllo NouU.
We abhor men of littlo souls. Every
thing they do is performed in a sneaking
manner. If you trade with thsin, the
trouble they cause you is worlh double
your profit. They will stand an hour,
and contrive a dozen of ways to sponge
you out of half a cent ; and if ihey cannot
accomplish it, they will go off as mad as
a meet-axe, muttering to themselves about
our hard world, depravity, tfce. If such
men have bills to collect of you, they
will give no peacn as long as they are un
paid. Thi?y track your steps wherever
you go, and haunt you day and night, till
the debt is cancelled. If they lose a far
thing by you in trade, they nevrr forget
it, but will treasure the supposed wrong
you have done them to the dose of life ;
ami when your namo is mentioned in
llieir presence, they will throw out sus
picions and insinuations, to destroy your
reputation. V ilh all this meanness,
what is very singular, such characters are
not aware of their conduct, and deem
themselves beloved and respected, when
every one who knows, dccpiscs them.
They walk the streets, talk by tho way
side, and drive into any thing they please,
with as little regard for another, as if they
were created to bargain and make money,
while you were in duty bound to look on,
and encourage and exert yourself in their
behalf. Bound up in self, men of such
principles cannot sec the right of others
when they como in competition with
their interests. So long as they herd up
treasures, and the winds and waves arc
favorable to them, they arc contented
no mailer bow deleterious to others. Ii
would not move them a bare to see the
whole property of a neighbor sunk in the
sea, provided it would cause a demand
for an article of w hich they had a quanti
ty on hand. Such men live, move and
act in our minds for what purpose ex
cept to hord up riches, and to distress the
poor, we cannot tell. Certainly they are
no benefit to mankind. They have a
kind word and smile for none, nnd they
never make a heart to rejoice, except
when thpy die, and the devoted preacher
gives out to bo sung at their funcrl, the
appropriate hymn of Watts, commencing-
"Believlnt; we rej"iee
To see the course removed."
.71 Inch of 'Flint, "Millions of money
for an inch of time," cried Elizabeth the
gifted, but vain and ambitious Queen of
England, upon her dying bed. Unhappy
woman ! reclining upon n royal couch,
with ten thousand dresses in her ward
robe! a kingdom upon which tho "sun
never sets" at her feet', all now are valuc-
ess, and she shrieks in anguish and
shrieks in vain, fnrasingle "inch of lime."
She enjoyed three score and ten years.
Like too many among us. (die had so de
voted them to wealth, to pleasure, to pride, ,
and ambition, that her whole preparation '
for eternity was crowded into herjast mo1
menis, and hence she who had wasted
more than half a century, would now bar
ter millions for an viuoh of time."

Its oljecl why it thuidd be successful.
What is the object ol Democracy!
What docs it propose to the people? The
object of democracy is the maintenance of
human rights ; and it proposes the eleva
tion, cultivation, expansion, and freedom
of the humaix.mind. It farther proposes
that this ennobling of humanity shall ex- '
tend throughout the ramification of socie
ty, in every situation, and on every sub
ject, civil and religious as well as politi
cal. It in short promises the emancipa
tion of the human mind from all the bonds
with which it had been shackled, and its
elevation to that high state of refinement,
enjoyment, and greatness, for which it
wai created.
Call us leveller?, then if you will ; (of
we desire uncompromising hostility to
every thing that has f.ir iis object or its
effect the depression of man. But observe,
our levelling system raiher seeks to draw
suffering humanity up to a higher stand'
dard, than to depress the faculties i.f any.
Wealth is not the great object for which
man must live ; neither does its acciden
tal possessions place ils possessor above
his fellow in the great elements of human
ity. We therefore oppose allowing it iin-
lue influence, or permitting it to crush.
overwhelm, swallow up and destroy or
to tyranizc over the less favored and
fortunate.
Democracy must and will triumph.
The world will one day own its sway.
And it is only surprising that nt this day
it has not progressed further, and is not
ofiener victorious. lis exertions are infa-
vor of the people, and i( principles are
carried out by the people. It appears to
man to make himself happy.
These are high ends wc occupy high
grounds, and aim at raiul results. But
they arc not in opposition to the intentions
of Providence. All men however humble.
poor and wretched, yet possess souls,
spirits, disabilities, hopes, fears, pas
sions, aspirations and intelligence, like
ourselves; and the tyranny that would
prevent the exercise of those faculties, is
w hat we oppose.
How much wretchedness, squalor, dis
tress ami suffering, do we find among
mankind? How many persons there nro
whose labor fcaice tufficcs to procure tho
necessaries of life, and these of the most
course nnd meagre kind. How many of
our citizens are trammelled in mind, and
forbidden to think for themselves, but
obliged to submit to tho tyrannical dog
mas of a master or employer, in order to
secure the contiuuence of the meagre fare
they now possess.
Legislation is too f.cqucntly directed
towards the Fropcr'y Holders the poor
aro allowed to take care of themselves J
but legislation should extend to nil alike.
As tho poor are weak and powerlees,
they rcquiro a fostering hand. Labor
does not one any injury, so that he is
well fed and will clothed ; but these
should be well secured to him, with
out being subject to tho caprice of any
one.
Our cry is down with oppression in
every shape. Let the mind be free to
act. We will give no support to mono
polies, privileged institutions, or partic
uhir interest. Favor, support, sustain,
encourage and protect all alike. Level
the w hole human race but level them to
an elevated point. The state can do this
chiefly. Let our legislation have this
tendency :
1. To secure a comfortable existence
to the poorest people. . .
2. To promote the interests of all class
es, without injuring any. . '-
3. To unite the interests of the Gov
ernment and people.
1, To prevent the concentration of
wealth either by corporation or other
vvie.
Gipsics. It is genortdly known that
