The following lines were suggested to the writer
by seeing another ol our young and promising
•net conveyed prematurely to the grave:
Who is it rests beoeath the pall
Ye are bearing to slowly awav?
Upon whose.brow did the death-stroke fall?
Wbat loved one did be slay?
Is it the aged eye that sleeps
Beneath that shadowy veil,
W here death his ailent vigil keeps
O’er the brow so cold and pale?
Is it the form that slow decay
Hath withered in Ha youth?
Did sorrow on its fond hopes prey ,
And blight its dreams of truth?
No—no; Mis one whose hopes were high;
Whose bosom joys were bright.
Oh! Death! why did thine arrow fly
This opening flower to blight?
His youthful heart was dreaming
Of many a future day.
His joyoui eye was beaming,
And health did round it play.
And now he has past to the spirits’ rest,
As the rainbow fades from the skies.
He has gone, we trust, to the land of the
blest,
As evening’s ro«e light dies.
They have borne him to his silent grave,
And autumn winds sweep o’er him,
Spring breezes oft the grass shall wave -
Au'd hearts will still deplore him.
Thou vouthful one, at evening hour,
Go where his ashes sleep,
Pluck from his grave the first Spring flowci
And o’er the emblem weep.
Oh! gem the garland with thy tears
That one so young hath died,—
Blest with easn hope that life endears:
A mother’s joy, a father’s pride.
And when you mark the flowret’s bloom,
How fast it fades awav,
Oh! let the emblem teach thy doom:
For soon thou must decay.

A gentleman just returned to Albany from the
west, states that on Thursday last be travelled
on runners from Oswego to Aoburn, and that the
enow was from eight to ten inches deep. In
some places on the route, apples were not gather
ed and potatoes were still in the ground. A
gentleman from Herkimer county informs us that
there has been considerable snow in that county.
On the 1st inst., the ice at Cincinnati, Ohio, was

Charles F. Afcrecr.—Thi* energetic friend of
Internal Improvement seem* to have retained hit
popularity in deapite of the petty malice of
Jackaon and Eaton, and the aervile roeanneaa
of the stockholder! who lately removed him
from the Presidency of the Chesapeake ana j
Ohio Canal Company, to gratify the wishes of i
the Dictator at Washington, and hi* Kitchen
Cabinet. Throughout the Union, the Public
Presa not in the pay of the Administration, has
but one sentiment in regard to the disgraceful
transaction. The people of every State, the
members of everv party, unite in denouncing it
a« it deserve*. Mr. Mercer has men in the es
timation of all.—while hi* successor seems,
even io hi* own State, to have sunk deeper and
deeper in the slough.
In testimony of their high respect, for bis
private worth and public services, the citizens
of Charleston, Kanawha County, Va., and its
neighborhood, lately invited Geo. Mercer to
partake of a public dinner. We chanced, like
Mr. M. to be in Kanawha, and was present at
the entertainment. The company, both for num
ber* and character, wai highly respectable, and
the evening passed off to the entire satisfaction
of all. The dinner was not considered a politi
cal one; and men of all parties freely united in
hunoring one, whom the iron hoof of Power had
endeavored to crush from the vilest of motives,
and by the worst means. We for one, must
ever be opposed to the political principles and
conduct of Mr. Mercer. Of these we have
spoken with freedom, and will continue to de
nounce while we can wield a pen. Our war
against them allows of no armistice—we are at
opposite poles in the political world. But stil
he is an open enemi. and we know where to find
him He is not of the school of Joab, which
stabs whilst it salutes. Such hypocrisy is ex
clusively monopolized by Van Buren and "that
ilk'*
We have not time to dwell on the speech ol
Mr. Mercer. It is enough to say that it was
• X _ itIAVO UP
concise,—nappy »u ■*- —-J .
were particularly pleased with the unaffected
manner in which he transferred the compliments
contained in the guest toast, to Chief Justice
•Marshall. The speech together with the pro
ceedings at the dinner, will be found in our pa
per ot to day. .
We cannot dismiss the subject without speak
jng in terms uf merited praise of the polite and
gentlemanly character of the sentiments offered
on the occasion. Though the company included
men of every party, from the Nullifier to the An
ti secessionist, yet not a single toast was offered
calculated in the slightest degree to wound the
feelings of anv. or mar the general harmony.—
The fact itself speaks volumes in favor of ths
civility, correct feelings, and good sense of thi
citizens of Charleston and if* vicinity.

There is a rumor in circulation, entitled to wi
do not know what credit, that the Secretary o
the Treasury has apprised the President that hi
finds he cannot get along with his admimstratioi
of the Finances, now that the Treasury is depn
ved ol the services of the Bank of the Unite!
States. It 14 even rumored that already the fol
i ly of the change in the Government deposiles ha
I become so apparent, that they are to be restored
Our readers will not understand us as vouchinj
. wwwrtwroirp floon another M'eEPel‘^
e them, we shall plainly fetT them so. For thi
| present, we doubt whether the Treasury has ye
had a taste of the quality of its new financial a
gents; it happening very fortunately for the Gov
eroment that there are funds still in the Bank o
the United States tu be drawn upon. When thi
; time qpmes for draw ing on the pet banks, we shal
I see how they will bear it, and how the Secretary
• of the Treasury will get along with them.

') Rumors of rather ao unpleasant nature, havi
reached this city respecting the condition of thi
, money market in Philadelphia. The local banki
find it difficult to pay the balances due the Banl
. of the United States. And even one of the nee
. favorites of “the Government”—notwithsiand
, ing that it has been constituted one of the keep
ers or the public treasure, round it tnconvemen
to pay its debts a day or two since, and the go
vernment itself was obliged to step forward to iti
relief. The circumstances were these: Tht
Girard Bank owed the U. S. Bank a balance ol
two hundred thousand dollars, for which pay
, mcnt was requested The Girard Bank prayed
for delay, but the U. S Bank thought the debt
had been long enough due, and declined the re
quest. In this dilemma, oot being able to meet
its engagements, the local Bank had recourse tc
a draft from the Treasury Department, of 500,
000 dollars— which it seems had been prepared
and procured for the emergency.—of course leav
ing a balance in its own favor of three hundred
thousand dollars—which the Mother Bank paid.
The fact hen* to he noted is this: By an illegal
removal of the deposites, “ the government” al
ready finds itself compelled to resort to another
( illegal act to sustain the credit of its new depoa
ite banks. So.that the public money is now
being” used-not for the legitimate purposes
of the government—not in payment of appropri
• ations by Congress—but to enable the favorite
;ilGcal Banks to meat their engagements! Con
Igress will have ‘*a searching operation” to per

Hon. James Barbour.—An interesting Me
moir of the Life of this distinguished Virginian,
i may be found in the Alexandria Gazette, of the
1 6th inSt. The article is chastely and forcibly
■ ! written, and is chdfricterised throughout by a
1 strict regard to facts, and to the life and charac
ter of Mr- Barbour. It has been our fortune to
stand opposed to Mr. Barbour. He had select
ed one citizen as his choice for the Presidency—
we another. , He was honest in his preference—
and so were we in ours. These were in times,
however, when such difference was permitted—
and when the spirit of the Constitution, and of
Liberty, allowed citizens to differ, and yet not
hate one aoother. Hence we were never else
than friends. There has been no alteration, at
least, by statute, either in the Constitution, or in
those legible lines which characterise Liberty—
but only in men's practise under them.
We subscribe to all that the Memoir sets forth
in honor of Mr. Barbour. He is. indeed, an or
nament to the Country, and an honor to his spe
cies. It may be asked, what have we to do with
Mr. Barbour? It is for the purpose of remark*
ving upon (hit vary question,that wa hate spoken
of him at all. • ... .
We are too apt to make alieoa of tae best ci
tizeos. We permit our feelings, in regard to
men, to become circumscribed. If a citizan
shall not happen to belong to our State, (we
speak not of Pennsylvania only; the feeling is
common to all,) no matter how elevate e may
be in character, or how useful to the Country,
we are too apt to think of, and feel towards him,
as a stranger! We think this feeling ought to
be corrected. That other feeling ahould be cul
tivated which leads to the contemplation of any
gif»ed and virtuous citizen, as the property oj
the nation—and as reflecting no less honor by
his acts, upon other States, than the one in
which he may happen to have been born.
Nothing is so fatal to our happiness as one
oreat family, to the harmony ol its individual
members, and to Liberty, as is that spirit which
would set metes and bounds to our admiration of
the great and good. .. .
We are not of Virginia—but would not think
ourselves dishonored in hailing from it, unless,
indeed, we were allied to all ihe contradictions
and somersets of the Richmond Euquirer. But
though not of, or from N irginia, if we know our
selves we feel as proud of her Washingtons, und
Jeffersons, and Madisons, and Monroes, and
Barbours, as though we hail drawn our urst
breath, and lived all our days, in that State.
It is in this view of the subject, knowing Mr.
Barbour, as well as we do, that we rejoice to see
sketches of his life and character placed before
the public. All such sketches, when they relate
to goodness and virtue, are useful—and they add
to the stock of renown to which our great men
have so largely contributed, to make our country
glorious.
We go for the American principle—not that
which is sectional. •*/ am an American citizen,
is the -proudest annunciation that an American
can make—not I am a Virginian, or a Pennsylva
nian, &c. tic.-rhil Com Her.

| Curability of the Insane.—The Sprinfield Ga
r zette states that 133 patients have bet-n receive*
at the Worcester Hospital during the nine month
since its establishment, and that eighteen of thesi
have been discharged ccred The vast impor
tance of institutions like this, well managed, anc
! the still greater importance of their being availee
! of promptly by the community in new cases o
1 insanity, cannot possibly be overrated. Then
1 are probably from 12,000 to 15,000 insane per
sons in the twenty four States. There were es
' donated to be 1,000 in Connecticut alone in the
pear 18IS; and according to the census of 1835

York, which was considered by physicians mud
1 below the average. In this Commonwealth i
; has been reported to the Legislature, during th<
current year, that in 68 towns, containing mud
less than half the whole population, there wen
279 lunatics and ideots confined in jails, alms
houses and houses of correction, or about-one o
this class of the insane to every 1000 inhabitants
There are 14 000 insane in England to a popu
lation of twelve or thirteen millions, and it is be
‘ tieved that our proportion is greater than theirs.
We speak of prompt application to the Hospi
tal as of the utmost importance. As Dr. Brig
ham, in his appendix to Spurzheim, observes, ai
eminent physician, in his evidence before the
Committee of Paaliament, in 1789, averred that
nine out of ten cases of insanity recovered, if pla
ced under his care within three months from the
attack. Dr. Burrows stated in 1830, that of re
cent casps under his care, 91 in 100 recovered;
and in 1828 he adds, that the subsequent annual
reports of various lunatic institutions, a nd his
own wider field of observation confirm the above
statement. In La Salpetiere at Paris, the pro
portion of cures of recent cases was in 1806-7,
according to Div Carter, almost as high as that
of l)r. Willis, and according to Dr. Veitch*s offi
cial statement to Parliament, nearly two of three
of the recent cases were discharged cured, while
i only five out of 152 old cases recovered. Very
j similar results have occurred at that excellent es
; tablishment, the Bloomingdale Asylum in New.
York, and at the Connecticut “ Retreat” duriog
the first five years, of ninety-seven recent cases,
eighty-six were cured. Prompt attention and
prompt application, (at least for advice,) then,
we repeat, are of the first moment. Mere con
finement, or indiscreet management, and especi
ally punishment of any kind, perhaps does more
than any other cause to con^rm or create the evil
it aims to relieve or remove.— Boston Mer. Jour.
Boston, Nov. 8—In the Lectures which are
: now in course before the Massachusetts Histori
cal Society at the Athenseom Hall, at seven o’
clock every Monday evening; Mr. Sparks deliv
| ered a lecture last Monday evening on the trea
son of Benedict Arnold. This event in our his
tory, has always been regarded as one of promi
nent interest, and is generally known as one of
the revolutionary war. 'The unaccountable depra
it* of Arnold, and the fate of the gallant Andre,
•re remembered by every one who know* »nything
of history. But from the common history ot the
country, one learns very little of the real causes,
and motives, either of Arnold’s or of Andre s
conduct. Mr. Sparks, having sought information
from all sources, has been enabled to present tbie
remarkable story, in lights entirely new, an<*
give to the whole series of events, the charm tnat
one some times finds in works of brilliaRt imagi
nation, tho’ adhering closely to historical truth.
He developed the whole plan, and even exhibited
life very papers which were concealed on Andre s
person, at the moment of his capture; and among
them, the original past in Arnold’s handwriting.
Henry Clay.—It is now upwards of thirty
years since Henry Clay, then a friendless and ,
orphan boy, commenced his bright career of
greatness and of glory. Since that perio
! find his honored name associated with all «• j
elevated and noble in our national annals. His
fame has penetrated to remotest parts, and wher
ever civilization Iia9 extended or a friend of free-1
dom d wells, there the name of Clay is known and
reverenced. The great wish of his heart has ev
er been that the liberties of the people might be
immortal. VVho can forget the flood of light that
his capacious mind has shed opon all the momen
tous questions that have agitated our country for
more than a quarter of a century? Who can be
hold the generous msn who has twice stepped
forward, in the darkest hours, when the integrity
of the Union hung upon a cast, and rescued her,
without admiration? Who can look upon those
great undertakings which have placed our coun
try in her present prominent position amongst
nations, and which continue to promote her hap
piness, prosperity and glory, without a deep and
abiding sense of gratitude towards their noble
hearted author and supporter? Henry Clay be
gan the world friendless and alone, without a
patrimony, without any of those advantages which
fall to the lot of a majority of youth; but by his
talents, his genius, and his eloquence he has won
for himself an exalted rank amongst the brightest
and roost valued ornaments of our wide spread
land. He has literally carved out hi* own for
tune, ana reared iur imnseii » p*"— «■

faithful representative, the unrivalled speaker,
the dignified senator, the accomplished diploma
list, the skilful secretary, the unsurpassed ora
tor, the eminent politician, the incorruptible pa
triot, the dauntless advocate of South American
independence, the ardent friend of liberty, and
the saviour of the Union, he has been successive

Yankee Ingenuity —Some weeks ago, we
spoke of a Yankee ‘corn-grinder lately Invented
. which increased the corn in quantity as well as
t in nutritive power,—* statement which aroused
> the criticism and amusement of our friends, among
. whom was the editor of the I ranscript, —but it
i is true nevertheless,—as many witnesses are rea
r dv to vouch. Now we have another Yankee in
vention to speak of. We saw on Saturday at a
. chaise manufactory in this town, a piece ot a
> board, or rather a slice of bass wood, which was
5 sawed oft* by a saw lately invented by Mr. Job
White, an ingenious mechanic in Belfast,—which
> machine, as we are informed, is so constructed
i a log in one piece, a9 a piece of cloth. The
• saw works horizontally—and th^ board it'rolled
. oft* on a cylinder. Its chief utility, we suppose
i to be in the ability to make a wide board out of a
small log. The Pannels, See are thus sold much
cheaper. The boards, >»e presume, can be of
. any thickness.— Portland Adv.
I -
i Interesting case of Somnambulism.—The fol
. lowing facts were communicated to us by a phy
sician of (his place, in relation to a case to which
| he has been called professionally, and of which
| he has been an eye witness:
f A female about nineteen years of age, living
| in a family in this town, is frequently known to
! rise fiom her bed during the night, while asleep,
dress herself, and go about her daily employ
ments. In several instances she has got up and
set the table for breakfast, with as much regu
ioniy ns sue urn's wnen a wane, selecting merignt
i articles, ami placing them upon the table exactly
; as they should be. In one instance ahe went in
i to the buttery, which was perfectly dark, skim
med the cream from the milk, and poured it in
i to one bowl, and the milk into another, without
spilling any at all She frequently goes to the
r‘ drawers where her clothes are kept, changes the
position of (he articles, or takes them out, and in
some cases has placed (hem where the could not
find them when awake. In one instance she took
i out her needle book, and it has not been found
1 since; but at a subsequent paroxysm, she was
i found sewing, in the dark, a ring upon a curtain,
with a needle and thread, which it was supposed,
from several circumstances, she could have ob
I tained from no other source but the lost needle
, book.
I This fact, together with other facts in the case,
seem to show some connexion between the se
j veral paroxysms, in regard to the trains of
I thought; and also an analogy between this and
! some cases of insanity, where lucid intervals
! intervene. In all these instances she moves
; about the house with as much ease and self poi.
session as if every thing was going on as usual,
I avoiding persons and objects which are in her
' way, although her eyes are often shut.
When in one of these paroxysms, she usually
talks a great deal, and with much more fluency
and vivacity than in her waking hours, and oc
casionally upon religious subjects, so that the
case may, in this respect, be somewhat anala
gous to the sleeping preacher at Saybrook. One
striking feature of this case it, that she is.gov
erned in her language and actions by her dream
ing thoughts or i magi nations, and all her impres
sions from external objects are made to accord
perfectly with these imaginations. For instance,
ahe frequently supposes herself in some other
place, usually her native place, and calls the
Krsons around her by the names of persons who
e in that place, and speaks with much interest
of scenes and objects which ahe has seen there.
If inquired of about persona and things in Spring
field, particularly the family in which she lives,
she knows nothing shout them. Nothing which
can be said or done to her aeema to have the
slightest influence in changing the current of her
thoughts. All attempts to awaken her generally
prove unsuccessful.
At one time cold water was thrown upon, her,
bat it had no effect, except to produce the exeU
mation, “ why do yon want to drown rne?”—*n(j
immediately ahe went to her chamber, changed
her clothea, and came down again to her work.
An emetic was given her (which ahe took, at the
said, because the physician, whom she called
her father, wished it) bot though it relieved her
headache, it did not awaken her.
It left to herself, she after awhile voluntarily
goes to bed, and composes herself to sleep, bat
remembers in the morning nothing which has
transpired.
When in the paroxysms, ahe usually suffers
much pain in one aide of the head, her face is
flushed, and her breathing so laborious and loud
at to be heard in a distant room. She sometimes
complains of the pain in har head; and in one in
stance wished to have it opened to ascertain the
cause. Her appearance usually indicates per
fan health; but her general health is not good;
and ahe is not the most subject to these parox
ysms when she is more unwell than usual. She
has been subject to there more or less for several
years.—Springfield Gaz.
