Ill THE*YOUNG MOTHER.
_ ® She stands amidst the glittering crowd, jfpi ^ vr|ien at grst her sweet cheek glowed, H§ Even in this very place. i| The same bright tresses bind her brow, 1® The same rich pearls her hair, SI Her lip is just as roseate now, fH Her hands as soft and fair. b *^| n| As when we saw her first, fil When in her flash of happiest pride Eg Upon our eyes she burst; Bl| And even now she leans, as then, III Yes^-’tis the very same again, ■ > With every faultless charm. Yet there’s a change-her eyes are still P Most beautiful and bright; ^ ^ ^ I Her^voiced sweet, and rich, and low, fl But ’tis grown more, like a river's flow, H Then a fountain’s laughing fall. H If Still, still she smiles as radiantly, || When friends are speaking near: jj| But in her smile there’s less of glee, And more oi Diiss sincere. >Tis not tlie brilliant scene around That her quiet heart beguiles; In her pure spirit may be found The fountain of her smiles. Now, ever and anon, her eye Is fixed on vacancy, And she seems to listen earnestly; For, ’midst the revelry, In fancy comes an infant’s wail, Or its murmuring in its sleep; And the splendid hall seems cold and pale, When such visions o’er her Greep. And though the scene is very fair, She wearies for her home, And thinks the hour to take her there Will never, never come! She, who once watched the time in pain. That would too quickly flow,— Oh, sure she might be gayer then, But she is happier now! LATEST FROM ENGLAND. By the British ship Frances, Capt. Leslie, at Savannah, from Liverpool, London papers to the 27th of November and Liverpool to the 2Sth, are received. Marshal Jourdan died in Paris on the 23d of November, at the age of 71. The London Gazette of November 26th, says: The Indicateur de Bordeaux states that St. Se bastian has been declared a free port, and that provisions are abundant in that town, brought there by French vessels. Accounts from Madrid state that Bourmont passed through Merida to embark, and that Don Carlos was still at Castello Dranco, or in the environs. Several arrests have taken place at Madrid amongst the Clergy. The Foreign market was in the same state as that of the British; prices nominal as on the 25th of November. j Letters trom Home state that the rumored in tention of Austria to sanction or create an Ita lian Confederation, had so alarmed the French Cabinet as to elicit from it a notification to the Holy See, that in such an event the French Go vernment would deem it expedient to increase, the number of its troops in Ancona, and occu py Civita Vecchia. Great Britain, it is also stat ed has acquiesced in the policy of this menaced proceeding. Liverpool, Nov. 28.—We annex our circular of 23d inst. to which we beg reference—since that date we have had more demand for cotton with a little feeling in the market, and prices ad vanced a l-4d per lb. from the extreme depres sion of the previous week. The enquiry yesterday was, however, more limited, and a greater de sire to sell was manifested, in consequence of which the market was again rather languid and the above advance cannot be considered as ful ly maintained. The business in the last few days is estimated at 14.000 bales. New Uplands 8 l-2d a S 3 4d. 100 DOLLARS REWARD. ON Tuesday morning, between Fredericks burg and my plantation, in the upper end of Stafford, a NEGRO MAN, and the'MARE on which he was riding, both belonging to me, were stolen by a man who seems to have been a stranger in this part of the country. When seen in possession of the Slave and of the Mare, he was inquiring Ins way to Stafford Court House. He is described to me as a person be tween fifty and sixty years of age, with re markably white hair; his stature stout and well set. He wore a brownish colored stuff cloak The ne«£ro is between twenty-five and thirty years of age, as well as is remembered; stout in his person, and about five feet ten or eleven tn - ches high; has a drawling manner of talking, and appears to be much less sagacious than he really is. His name is Jack. His dress was a blue cloth cap, a grey great coat, and his under clothing drab cloth. The Mare is a fine large sorrel, without any spot of white about her, unless perhaps there may be some few white hairs in the centre of the forehead, not covering more than the size of a four-pence-hulfpenny. She is, as well as is : recollected, going on seven years of age; is re- j markabiy long in her body; has along tail, and it is remarkable where it joins the rump. There may be discerned in the film of one of her eyes an incision which was made a year or two ago j to cure the hooks. One Hundred Dollars Reward will be given for therecovery of the above Slave and Mare, or in ! the ptoportion of four and two for the recovery of eiliierJ . , v JN0- TAYLOE LOMAX.

M. jan 24 1 congressional. /n Senate, Monday, January 27. Mr FRELINGHUYSEN presented a pet1' tioa from a number of citizens of Newark', New Tprsev praying that the deposites of the public moneys may be restored to the Bank of the United States.' . , _ On presenting this memorial, Mr. Freling huysen said:* I have before me, to offer for the consideration of the Senate, a memorial of the citizens of Newark, New Jersey, on the subject of the present agitation of the country. ■ This document is signed by thirteen hundred and for ty-one of the citizens of that town, and com bines the great mass, at least four-fifths, of its business population. They deplore the lemoval of the public deposites from the Bank of the United States, and the consequent breach upon the credit and derangement of the currency of the country. r . This memorial knows no distinction of party: I find among its numbers many of the hardy sons of honest labor, who feel this blow most deeply in the reduced demand and wages of their industry. For, however visionary specu latists may reason, a plain man knows that the value of his indu*try is depreciated by every act that alarms the credit and confidence in the money market. There is not a political econo mist on earth, in the use of his intellectual per ceptions, but must admit that such a sudden and violent measure, as the order of the Secretary, and proceeding from the hand of the Govein ment, must inflict injury—it is inevitable. Why, sir, consider, for a moment, the time: w hen a prosperity prevailed in all the branches of com merce and trade, without a parallel in this or any other country—when all the channels of confidence were full—when enterprise and trade were strained to their highest pressure—then, to strike a sudden blow at the great moneyed re presentative of capital, could not but produce a crash. The confidence of the country is smit ten. Men do not know where they stand, or what may be the coming crisfs. It is most marvellous, Mr. President, that it should never have occurred to the Executive, that his remedy does not and cannot reach the V <il _A-J aL.. i 13 . iaU l r, fi .*1 <1 n evil. juei U UC glCllllCU mat UlC aaun « ...... gerous agent, and that the President ami Di rectors deserve all the suspicions and denun ciations that have so liberally assailed them— that they are now engaged in meditating all man ner of terrible designs—“ gorgons, hydras, and chimeras dire”? Why, sir, do you not see that the removal of the deposites does not touch the transgressors? There sits the President of the Bank~ with his Board of Directors, around the exchequer .table, as calm, I doubt not, as a sum mers morning: his salary goes on; his official functions are uninterrupted; and the Bank itself, the only object which the general panic has left, without a concussion or even excitement. The Executive dreads and condemns the Bank; and punishes by distracting the country and distressing his friends. Yes, sir, I have said that this memorial had no party character istics about it. 1 wish sincerely that I could so persuade the Administration and its friends. It ranges above party—far above it. It assails the business and the firesides of those, many of whose names are here, who have stood by the President in good and evfi report. What mo tive can they have, or what inducement is there for any man, to decry his administration, or embarrass, without good and strong cau-e. his policy? Sir, they would far rather persuade him to add another laurel to his well-earned wreath—not by military victories, but by a no bler triumph, the self conquest that would pre vail with him to retrace a step that is so calam itous to the country. Mr. President, I know that I shall have the sympathies of the Senate, when 1 recal to them the instructions lately transmitted by the Legis lature of the State which I, in part, have the hon or to represent. This is a great national ques tion, of common concern to us all: for these in structions are multiplying, and call, -certainly from me, sir, for distinct and respectful notice. The import of these instructions, I admit, sir, cannot be mistaken. The terms are unequivocal, and plain to any apprehension. They instruct us to sustain, by our votes and influence, the p/mrsp of the Secretary of the Treasury in the removal of the deposites. What are the nature and claims of Legislative instructions? That a Legislature has the inherent right, legislatively and detached from their constituents, to direct the political conduct ofa Senator in Congress, 1 can never subscribe to. Sir, where has such a right been delegated by the People? A Legis lature of the State instruct or direct the Senate of the United States! Why, Mr. President, we had better change places at once. But where the resolutions of Legislature can be satisfacto rily regarded as the clear indication of public sentiment, deliberate and abiding, I am bound to hold them, as 1 do hold them, in most respect ful consideration. And on such an occasion, where that opinion interfered with my own judgment and conscience, 1 should promptly surrender a trust that could no longer be held in harmony with my constituents. But here, sir, my embarrassment commences. 1 am not satisfied that these resolutions are the sure in dex of decided public sentiment. Sir, you know, that, for the lu*t five years,.pur political atmos phere has been very much given to change.— The wheel is turning now, and, unless I mis read the language of events that are passing,im pulses are given to its motions, that will bring them to a whirl. Now, sir, will it be right to surrender private convictkms of duty to an in fluence from this giddy seat of power? I think not. I am quite conscious of the delicacy of my position, but I trust that 1 meet it without fear. 1 will further say, sir, that even where the opinions /if a State may be well known, occa sions may arise to a Representative of the Peo ple, rare I grant—when the emergency is of that deeply eventful nature—when lie must go alone, so to speak, in the purity of his own pur poses, and cast himself, with all his fame and all the confidence ofhis country, into the crisis, and sink ctr rise, as success shall crown his intrepid conduct. I do not pretend that this question of fers any parallel, or even analogy—nor would I presume to be equal to its claims. Sir, we have recently been witnesses, on this floor, to a most illustrious example of such a noble daring, of w hich I may not say more, but hand it over to fill one of the brightest pages in the future history of these eventful times. But, Mr. President, the difficulties of my situa tion are not diminished by the arrival of this me morial. Here, sir, 1 hold in one hand the voice of the State Representatives, and in the other, in louder, deeper tones, the voice of the People —and, they are antagonists to each other—they begin to diverge from the very starting point— what shall we do? Sir, 1 believe I may speak for my friend and colleague, when I answer, we will go for the People. There, after all, springs our power and our responsibilities. We will meet them there. I have no other course: I must follow’the lead of my own conscience, with the consolation that my conduct will be subject ed to the sober judgment and impartial scrutiny of a generous People. Sir, I cannot afford to • lose the confidence of my fellow citizens. It is a plant of slow growth, and when smitten, sel dom thrives again. I have not the desperate resoluteness to forfeit what I hold so valuable. Vote to justify the rash and ill-considered order of the Secretary! Sir, I should fear to meet the disappointed countenance of a grieved an in jured community—-and worse than all, I should lose that which no earthly distinction, no voice ! of human praise can repair or supply the re spect of my own mind. I will cherish that, and should I fall, it will be with consolations ol which power cannot deprive me. At some proper time, Mr. President, I will ask the indulgence of the Senate, to state briefly the reasons of my dissent from the opinions of the Secretary of the Treasury. At present, I will not interrupt the regular debate, but only ask, sir, that the memorial may be read and referred to the Committee on Finance. RIOTS ON THE LINE OF THE CANAL. We regret to have to inform our readers that the account of the pacification of the riot among the laborers upon the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, above and below Williamsport (in Washington county, Md.) turns out to be pre mature. Since the return of the Hagerstown volunteers, with a number of the men under ar rest, fresh and fatal hostilities have broke out, in the course of which, as appears by the fol lowing account, a number of lives have been lost:—Nat. Jnt. Williamsport, (Md.) January IS. Since the foregoing event, great commotion has existed among the hands. Very little work lias been done, and a state of alarm and war like preparation has taken place. On Thurs day Iasi, we are informed, a party ofCorkonians comitted excesses along the line above this place, yesterday morning a small party were seen approaching this place from above, and were met on the Aqueduct and driven back by - •__ _4 . - . f . an uPJJUM 11^ |J<1J \.y vm 111^11 C/UUim j men 111 uirj town. In tins affray one man was very serious ly beaten and wounded. The citizens of the town, with commendable alacrity, soon put themselves in military ol der, under arms for the balance of the day, and the greater part of the night. This scene was soon followed by another which resulted in a disastrous battle and seve ral deaths. A party of Fardouns or Langfords, consisting of about three hundred men, headed by intrepid leaders, were announced as ap proaching from below. Their design, they stated to be, to pass up the line of the canal to the upper dam, for the purpose of exhibiting their strength, and not to commit a breach oi the peace, unless attacked. They were armed in part with guns, but principally with helves, duos, &c. They passed up quietly over the aque duct and on their way, as we learn, three or lour hundred more of the same party fell in to their ranks. At the upper dam, in a field on tlse other side of MiddlekautPs, they met the enemy in battle array, drawn up on the top of a hill, about three hundred in number, and arm ed. in part, with military weapons. The information we have is, that the attack or at least a challenge to the combat, was made by the latter party. Volleys of shot were ex changed; some men were seen to fall, and the party above began to fall back and disperse before the superior forces of their enemy. A pursuit ensued through the woods, where fre quent firing was heard, and no doubt many lives were taken. Persons who traversed the field after the battle was over, observed Jive men in the agonies <J death, who had been shot through the head; several dead bodies were seen in the woods, and a number wounded in every direction. Those who observed the battle described it as one of the greatest rage and most deadly violence. All the deaths and wounded aie reported to have been of the Corkonians. About ten o’clock la^t night the victorious par ty returned, and passed quietly through this place, halting a few moments in one of the public streets, to their respective sections and shan i i-i ,i . rv * ___ ^A /V.U ices Ut'lUW U1C IU YY II.

PUBLIC DISTRESS. The land u gives signs of woe”! It is with pain, indeed, that we give the follow ing facts, collected from the papers received by yesterday’s mail, descriptive of the dreadful dis tress that prevails .throughout the country — What are we coming to? What is to become of the country? To Congress must the cry be raised. Will they, can they, disregard the ap, peal of suffering industry—of paralyzed enter prize? We learn that nearly three hundred hands were discharged by four manufacturers on Sa turday, in consequence of the existing state of things; and we need scarcely predict that every day will but add to the number of those depriv ed of the means of support.—N. Y. Courier. As some evidence of the present distress among business men, and consequent suffering of the poorer classes, we-state, upon undoubted authority, that four wholesale clothing establish ments have, within a few days, discharged from their employ nearly one thousand persons.— There are in this city, employed by the various clothing establishments, ten thousand persons, almost all of whom will be out of employ in a few days, if this state of things continues. N. Y. Mercantile. One hundred workmen were discharged last week from an extensive iron foundry. It is com puted that two thousand laborers were discharg ed by their employers on Saturday, and that ten thousand have been thrown out of employ within the last fortnight.—N. Y. Com. Saturday was a fearful day for all who had payments to make or wages to receive. The distress is becoming universal, and all classes, save only political hacks or leaders, are taking measures in earnest to make their voice heard by Congress.—N. Y. American.

It would seem that the sources of our prosperity are, for the present, completely dammed up. Public confi dence is wholly destroyed* industry labors al most without incentive or reward; and enter prise finds, neither in the present or future, that which will justify adventure. The distress ap pears to have reached the interior. We learn that the Country Banks are unable to afford their usual favors; the farmers find it difficult to effect sales of their produce at a fair rate; and many of them, alarmed at the state of! things, are changing their notes into specie, and withdrawing their deposites to hoard them at home.—Philadelphia Intelligencer. Extract of a letter dated Columbus, (Geo.) Jan. 10, 1834. Dear Sirs: We have suffered your note to be protested. The only apology we have to offer you is, that, with ample means to pay all our debts, we could not command the amount of your claim. Such is the press for money, that, • to raise it. many have to submit to five per cent, a month. This we could not stand, &c. , Extract of a letter dated New Orleans, Dec. 27, 1833. There is nothing doing here. Money is so scarce no one dare buy scarcely, except from - hand to mouth. We are afraid to sell to a pur chaser in the upper country, not because he is not good, and perfectly able to meet his engage ments, but because we cannot negociate his pa per. The United States Branch will not pay any new paper on the west, though it is willing 1 to help the merchants out with their old. What we are to do, God only knows. 1 These extracts will be sufficient to show the nature and reality of the distress. ] Under such circumstances, we wish we could ( see land! from the sea of debate in both houses of Congress. But we do not. There are said j :o be several Senators who aie yet to make set ^ speeches; and at the conclusion of Mr. Hunting- ^ :on’s speech in the House on Tuesday, no less ^ ;han four gentlemen at once endeavored to ob- . ain the floor—Mr. Gorham, Mr. Vanderpoel, | r Mr. Wise, and Mr. Archer—when it was given j )y the Chair to Mr. Archer!! ~ c We say there has been enough of speaking; * t is time for action! ^ We understand that Virginia paper is now at a i discount in this place of one per cent.; in • f Washington, one and a quarter; in Baltimore, t me and a half; and further north, from three to t ive per cent. , r , - - ; V Some misapprehension appears to prevail re_ t ative to some remarks made by Mr. Forsyth in j, iis speech on Monday. We understand that c hat gentleman proposed no plan of relief for p he community. We hear that he admitted that, i p ad he been one of the President’s counsellors* ! v e would not have advised the removal of the a )eposites. o Instant, prompt and decided, measures ought tl i be taken to put a slop to the scenes now act- h ig along the line of the Chesapeake and Ohio a ‘anal. The men engaged in this business ought ) be taught, at once, that here the law is su reme. u Honest/” George Kremer is in Washington -in consultation, it is said, with Mr. Van Bu- ( en! ___ n Mr. Jno. Janney, of Loudoun, may consider ^ imself fortunate, in so far, at least, as having 11 een made the object of the abuse of the Globe. 0 ’hat precious print—the “ Official Government 11 aper’5!!—(Heaven save the mark!) being now scognized as the legitimate reviler of almost jr very thing good in the country, its denuneia- y on may be considered prima facie evidence of c Ir. Janney’s merit. ^ We can, for the satisfaction of the Globe owever, inform that paper, and doubtless it fc ill be a source of much satisfaction,—so pecu- lc arly amiable is it in all its course,—that Mr. w mney is not “ an inveterate bank cockade fe- tv eralist.” g Having told the Globe what Mr. Janney is not, di re will now tell what he is. He is, then, a true ^ .epublican—a self-taught man: elevated by the 2 >rce of his own talents and character. With no recommendations but his own industry, per. severance, integrity and knowledge, he has se cured to himself the respect and esteem of eve. ry one who knows him, and the full and entire confidence of the large and intelligent coun tv which he represents in the Legislature. If there was any such thing as shame in the composition of the Globe conductors, their faces ought to burn when they think of their constant abuse of virtue and patriotism. The New Jersey Democrat lately gave an ac count of the conversion of Capt. Stockton from Jacksonism. The Trenton Emporium denies the statement and says that Capt. Stockton has not been converted. Which of these papers are we to believe? The Regents of the University of the State of New York, at a meeting held on the 22d in stant, conferred the degree of Doctor of Laws on the Hon. Benjamin Franklin Butler. Attor ney General of the United States. Mr. Flint, late editor of the Knickerbocker consequence of the state of his health, which obliges him to pass the present winter in a mild er climate, has withdrawn from the charge of that Magazine. Abner Kneeland, to whose name the title of Rev. has been sometimes absurdly prefixed has been convicted at Boston of blasphemy, af ter a trial of three days. On Saturday morning the Court proceeded to pronounce sentence, which was, that the de fendant be imprisoned three months in the com mon jail, and enter into a recognizance in the sum of S500 with sufficient surety in a like sum to keep the peace and be of good behavior for two years. The defendant appealed to the Supreme Court. Great Verdict.—In the case of John Rundel Junior, against the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal Company, (which has been under trial for several weeks in the State of Delaware.) the jury, after four days spent in their chamber, came into Court last Saturday afternoon, the 25th inst., awarding to the plaintiff the large sum of tiro hundred and twenty-six thousand three hundred and eighty flee dollars damages. An army of Woodcutters.—It is computed that 6000 persons are employed at this time in cut ting timber in the woods of the State of Maine [communicated.] The hint of *'* Senex,” in the Gazette of this morning, to “ the Friends of the Bible,” is sea sonable and kind; for it is certain that the friend* 3.' the Bible must always be the friends of the poor. We have many such among us; and whensoever we will, we may do them good. It 3iir benevolent young men, who have provided wood for the poor, and propose opening a Soup House for their benefit, need more funds, they have only to ask for them: and if they needed my thing to stimulate them to persevere, beside? :he blessing of the widow, the respect of their fellow-citizens, and the approbation of their own minds, they should have the public and private :hanks of every Friend of the Bible. Let them %o forward. Their conduct is honorable to :hemselves, to the community, and to the Bible May the blessing of those who are ready to pe *ish, and the blessing of the widow’s God, be up in them all. But does “ Senex” mean to intimate that the joor need only wood and soup? Shall we sup* >ose that we have done all that Charity demands vhen we have provided for their temporal or emporary wants? Shall we feed, and clothe, md warm their bodies, and neglect their im* aortal souls? The Bible instructs us to care for M roth. And while millions of our fellow-men are destitute of that Holy Book, whose inspired ruths, alone, can give the knowledge of salva ion, and awaken the soul to its true interests nd its high and solemn responsibilities, “ the nends of the Bible*’ cannot think they have done 0 others as they would that others should do into them, until they offered a Bible to every fa' lily, and, if possible, to every individual, of the ride earth. This, with the blessing of God, hey are determined to do. It is a great work: ; is a good work: it i* a noble work. It has en ountered, and will encounter, opposition: but will be done. And if, while we are encaged 1 this toil, we should ever forget the sufferings rhich are around us, be “ Senex” our Mentor md if, again, he, while pleading a remembrance I f the poor, would feed the body, and neglect le mind, we shall turn to our Bibles, and read im this lesson: “ These ought yc to have done, nd not to leave the other undone.” Jan. 29.
