From the Newbwryjport Herald. TO GREECE. Home of the beautiful and brave; Proud mistress of the sea and strand, Thy bold bark breasted many a stranger wave, Thy banner flaunted many a conquered land. Haunt of the oppressor and the oppressed; In iron bondage, listless sleeping: By outrage crushed, by ceaseless sorrows pressed, Nor watch of past, nor hope of future keeping. Soil of the daring, dauntless host; To foes, awoke in evil hour; No more to anciont virtue, recreant, lost; The crescent droops upon Byzantium’s tower. Such has been, was, and is thy state, Strange monument of wayward fate ! But once aroused, let not the tide Of dark misfortune, rolling wide, O’erthrow the strength, or quench the (ire Of holy freedom’s fond desire. One moment stand on Marathon; If daring then to yield: For you, the Athenian won In vain the laurelled field. Did not your fathers scorn to flee, In battle’s moodiest day } Go look on old Thermopylae, And Salamis* bay. Of centuries, bethink ye too, Of Ottoman misrule; Full well may ye, the lesssons rue, Of despotism’s school. Rush then to fight nor risque the dastard’s name, High on the arch of time inscribe vour fa me. Let Argivc vengeance light on Turkish fraud, And valor reap her loftiest reward. Already ’neath your blows, so gallant given, Full many a haughty, turbanned head is riven. Nerve then,- for old renown, for later woe, Bid boldly hurl defiance to your foe. Then shall bright freedom’s sons, in every th me, Hail the glad hour, and consecrate the time ; When disenthralled, you stretch your eagle flight, To regions, blest with liberty and fight. ~~ MISCELLANY._ From the New-York Albion. MR. BROUGHAM. Brougham rises amidst the deep si* lence of the house, and the muttered curses of the Reporters, whose pens must now be worn down to the stumps. His air and his manner, at first, put you very much in mind of those of a field preacher! He is tall, and bent, and pliant in his appearance; and tho’ his tones be. full a..d melodious, he he sitates, as if he were either at a loss what to say, or ashamed to say it. He stand* crouched together, pulls up his shoulders, hangs his head, and there is a tremulous motion in his up per lip and nostril; which makes you fancy that he is trembling through fear.—His first sentences, for an open ing sentence with him is a ten minutes matter at least, come forth cold hesi tating and ambiguous, so that for the soul of you, you connot perceive the drift of them. Each is indeed, aclear satisfactory proposition in itself, but the whole seem bent in one direction by a moving force, which is yet view less as the wind. When however, a sufficient number of these have been drawn out in a line, the whole march solemnly and steadily to one conclu sion, and the position meant to be car ried, is carried as completely and as irresistably as by a bayonet charge of the most powerful British troops. One point being thus won, the orator arises upon it, both in body and mind, and wins a second by a more bold and brief attack. Then he vaults upon the subdued basis, rises in figure and in tone till he overtops the staring mem bers and shakes the astonished house: and when he has gained what you im agint to be the very summit of power ful speaking and has kept beating time upon a table and looking towards every comer of the House, as if to see and sneer at the admiration which he has called forth, his voice and his figure < sink again to dimensions lower than ever. You would imagine that he was ter rified at the echo of his own voice, but no such thing: it is like the bending of the wrestler in order that he may twist his antagonist in his grasp, or like the drawing back of the tiger, in order that he may spring the more terribly on his prey.—Woe be to the man . upon whom his eye glares from that terri ble concealment.—Woe be to the wight, to whom those half whispered words are a prelude is the storm which is on the wing. You are of course a stran ger, and know not what is to happen; you merely see a man putting on an air of incomprehensible mildness and sim plicity, and near a man speaking in subdued whispers which astonish you by being audible to the very smallest syllable. The words which were at first cold and congealing, become hur ried and hot, and while the speaker ab solutely drowns the cheering of his own party, and binds the whole “Col lective” in a fetter which they dare not break, he is peeling some poor devil to the bone, and tossing his mangled limbs into all the positions of mental agony through the whole figures of rhetorick; nor is it till his own body has been vanquished and beaten down by the energy of his own mind that he drops upon his seat giving the House time to cheer and leaving you utterly confounded. We have known little of what may be denominated the interior character of the Indians—that is, their peculiar customs, habits, superstitions, and tra ditionary legends. Mr. Schoolcraft has, in his travels, gone far to illumi nate this daik part of the red man’s history. Of this kind of intelligence the following may serve . as a sample The Chippewas, after the interment of a person, preserve a fire for four nights upon the grave. This is foun ded on a romantic tale, that a warrior being once, as it was believed, mortally wounded, was placed against a tree. When his party returned victorious, this man followed the party, k though he saw them, could not himself be seen and though he hears them speak could not himself he heard. He had an in terview with his wife in his predica ment, and still not being able to con vince her that he was present, resolved to return and see if his body was in re ality sitting by the side of a tree. He accordingly went, and was obstructed by fire, which he finally passed through and on his return awakened fro/n a trance in which he had remained for eight days and returned home with The fire is preserved hy the Chippe was upon the grave for four nights from the intelligence imparted by this man, that the spirit had four days journey to make before he could arrive at the land of souls, and that he visited his grave every night to warm himself while on his nasage. Thick Skulls.—The following extract from Dr. Crichton’s Inquiry into Men tal Derangement, proves that the re proach is anatomically correct w'hen applied to those who labor under a de lect of intellect:— “It is very remarkable that the skulls of the greater number of such patients are commonly very thick; nay, some have been found of a most extraordina ry degree^ of thickness. Among two hundred and sixteen patients of this description, whose bodies were inspec ted after death, there were found 167 whose skulls were unusually thick, and only 38 thin ones; among which last number there w'as one which was much thicker on the right side than on the left. But in particular it was observ ed, that among 100 raving madmen, 78 had very thick skulls and 20 very thin ones; among which skulls there was one quite soft. Among 26 epileptic raving madmen, there were nineteen found with very thick skulls, and four very thin. Among 16 epileptic idiots, there were 14, and among 20 epileptic patients 16, who had very thick skulls; among whom there was one discover ed, one side of whose skull was thick, and the other thin. Among 24 me lancholly patients, there were 18 with very thin skulls; and lastly, among 30 idiots 22 with very thick, 6 with very thin skulls. AH the others had skulls of a natural thickness,” The moral tendency and importance of the doctrines of religion, may be il* lustrated by an application to men in every station of life^—Neither rank nor condition, age nor sex, should neglect its salutary precepts—above all the poor and unfortnnate classes of man kind should cling to it as their last and only hope. Religion diffuses the same lustre through the moral, as the sun through the natural world. It cheers the children of adversity, when misfor tunes assail and disappointments afflict them; wipes the tear from the eyes of the orphan, and conducts the devout and humble Christian, whose life has been a series of toil, pain and trouble from the cradle to the grave, to regions where the weary are at rest, and sorrows are no more. “The most valuable productions in the class of descriptive poetry, are those which intermingle with their scenery sentiment of a religious, mor al, or pathetic cast; without such an in termixture, indeed, the delineation of Nature would lose half its charms, and nearly all its propriety and utility. We are naturally led from the considera tions of the beauteous world around us to the contemplation of the Deity, and to reflections on the duties and pur suit of our fellow creatures; and in pro portion as these are skillfully and ap positely introduced, will be the suc cess of the poet, and the interest excit ILLUSTRATION OF LYING. It has pleased Mrs. Ofie, since she has turned Quakeress, to read a lecture to the world, in two volumes, under the title of Illustration* of Lying. The world has been notoriously given to this vice; and, like a true lover of truth, she does not flatter it, but tells man kind pretty roundly that they are a generation of liars, Sir W.. Scott, the romancer, Tom Cribb, the fibber, Major Longbow, and all other con scious dealers in falsehood, will plead guilty to her charges; but it will shock a great many very worthy neopie be sides, to discover that they have been in a daily habit of lying without know ing it. They have never indulged, per haps, in the lie of flattery, and bestow ed high praises on a young friend’s poetry; nor in the lie of convenience, and denied themselves to Mrs. Bever ley; nor even in the lie of benevolence, and given a tender character of a dis charged coachman. But let them just take a glance at the mirror which Mrs. Opie holds up to them in her chapter on lies practical. These are the lies not uttered but acted, and are Satan’s own stumbling blocks, no doubt, for the deaf and dumb; such are “wearing paste for diamonds, pur chasing broaches, pins, and rings of mock jewels;” and “ passing off goose berry wine, at dinner, for champaigne.” The man that “hides baldness by glu ing a piece of false hair to his head,” is a practical liar; and so is the lady with an artificial front A wig if it be tvell made, is a lie; the Devil is the father of lies, and so is an old match. How many pious, and otherwise moral, old gentlemen are walking into eternity with their lies upon their heads! But their case is not desperate,—for Mrs. Opie says—“If the false hair be so worn that no one can fancy it natu ral, if the bloom on the cheek is such that it cannot be mistaken for nature, then is the deception annihilated,” Let the woman of sin prefer rouge, but the lover of truth will use ruddle; let the man of fashion and the world still glue' on his false coxcomb, the consciencious will betake himself to a Welsh wig; and the gallant Marquis, who has a make-believe leg, will walk about, if he is ingenious, with a cork screw in his calf! • [London Globe and Traveller Practical Blander of an Irtsh Foot rad —During a journey of the Bishop of Salisbury (thecelebrated Gilford Bur net) from his See to London, he had a sudden occasion to stop the carriage, which he desired might proceed at a slow pace, as he expected shortly to overtake it. Very few minutes had elapsed before his Lordship was at tacked by a robber, who, in the Irish brogue, demanded his watch and mo* ney —Remonstrances under such cir cumstances being unavailing, he com plied with the best grace in his pow er, expecting no further molestation. The coat, however, of the Bishop, hap pening to take the fancy of the thief, he insisted on its being exchanged for his own thread-bare jerkin, in which the clerical dignitary was suffered to depart. During this transaction (he Bishop’s coach had proceeded a con siderable distance, and Mrs. Burnet becoming uneasy at her husband’s de lay, put her head out of the window & saw him running towards her with all possible speed, in his new disguise, with the meaning of which she was soon made acquainted, The Bishop, a short time afterwards, on putting his hand into one of the pockets or the jerkin had the unexpected good fortune to find his own watch and in the other, not only his own purse, but also ano ther,containing upwards of fifty gold en Jacobuses. advice. Let us never permit ourselves to be idle while there is any thing, that is not criminal, to be done. At the first ap proach of evil thoughts, let us force ourselves to toil, and however reluctant the mind may be, still bind it down to its task, and we shall escape every temptation.
