Prince George’9 County (Md.) Whig
Nomination.—At an adjourned meeting
of the delegates appointed to meet in
convention at Upper Marlborough, to
nominate candidates to represent this
county in the next Legislature, held on
the 8th instant, the convention proceeded
to make a selection of candidates, and
on counting the ballots, it appeared that
Henry L. Coombs, Robert Ghiselin, "Wil
liam H. Tuck, and Robert Bowie, Esqrs.
had received the highest number of votes,
and were thereupon recommended to the
voters of Prince George’s county for
their suffrage at the next Oct. election.
On motion by Benj. E. Gantt, Esq.
Resolved, That a convention ol dele
gates selected by the People in their pri
mary assemblages for the purposes of no
minating suitable candidates for their suf
frages, is in strict conformity to the prac
tice of our party, and eminently calcu
lated to produce that unity and concert
of action which can alone ensure the ulti
mate success of the principles of the
W higs—the only true principles on which
this Government should be administered.
Resolved, That in recommending to
Whigs of Prince Georue’s countv, Ro
bert Bowie, William H. Tuck, Robert
Ghiselin, and Henry L. Coombs, Esqrs.,
as suitable persons to represent this
county in the next General Assembly,
we have disregarded every personal or
local cosideration, and acted with a sin
gle eye to the advancement of those
; great principles which every true-heart
ed Whig values above every ouiei con
sideration.
On motion, Resolved, That the chair
man re assemble tins convention, after
due notice, in the event of a vacancy oc
curring in the above ticket.
Benj. L. Gantt, Chairman.
William G. Carter, Secretary.

| We regret to state that an accident oc
j curred last evening in the Northern Li
berties. As Mrs. Dallas (the mother ol
' trie Hon. George M. Dallas) and her
'daughter, Mrs. Campbell, were riding,
! the horses became alarmed and over.-et
i the carriage. Both the ladies were dread
fully injured — Mrs. Dallas so much s >
that she expired in a short time. Mrs. D.
was advanced in lile, and was much h« -
! loved and respected in this community.

Lengthy.—Many good writers still use
this word, for which a new degree of
! comparison should be invented. 11 f<>r
; instance a minister preaches a lengthy
! sermon, it seems necessary that he
j should have strength y lungs, and a
; bread thy subject. It will thus be seen
that there is a class of words that could
be tidy arranged under a degree which
! is unknown in any of the existing gram
mars. The necessity of such a degree,
therefore, ceils for a revision of our Ety
mology.— Charleston Observer.
! Courage.—It is not the daringness ol
• kick ing a waiter at the tavern; it is not the
| strutting with a cockade, dressed in scar
let; it is not uttering oaths and imnreca
caiions at every wold, which tor ins the
I characteristics of true courage. That j
man only is brave who tears nothing sol
much ii«> committing a mean action; and
undauntedly iultiiis his duty, whatever
! m.iv be the dangers that depend on his
! way.__
Ex km flaky.—The brig Rising Stales j
1 owned, ty a company of colored men in j

! sailed irom this port on a whaling voy
age about a week ago. She is owned'
ffued out, commanded, and manned!

j M*a was an example worth following. Ge*!
nerally, tor two or three days previous j
to going to sea, our ships are anchored ;
off in tne stream, and the greatest dii*
ticulty is experienced in getting the
men on board—some are intoxicated,
I some are hid away—-and others are bro’t
, down from the jail by the sheriff and
carried off to the ship. Masters and own
ers are seriously troubled in this way.— j
| But such was not the case with the Ris-1
ir.g Stales. The hour*for sailing arrived .
and every man went peaceably and so- j
beriy on'board of the brigw she lay at the i
u hai f The pilot stepped on the deck— j
the canvass was spread—the hawsers cast,

THE MARRIAGE FESTIVAL.
BY MRS. ABDY.
“Festivities are fit for what is happily
concluded; at the commencement they
hut waste the force and zeal which should
inspire us. Of all festivities the marriage
festival appears the most unsuitable;
calmness, humility and silent hope, befit
no ceremony more than this.”— Gotthe.
Lady, thy merry marriage bells are ring
ing.
And all around thee specks of festal
mirth,
The loss of one so good and fair is bring
ing
Methinks strange gladness for her fa
ther’s hearth;
Yet th'*u amid the throng art pensive sit
ting,
And well I know’ these revels cloud thy
bliss,
And that thou, deemest such triumph un
befit’ing
A solemn and important rite like this.
These flowery wreaths, these sounds of
exultation,
Some victor’s glorious deeds might ce
lebrate,
But thou canst claim no proud congratu
lation,
Untried, uncertain is thy future fate;
Nor would true friends a brilliant spell
cast o’er thee,
Giving to girlhood’s dreams delusive
scope,
But rather bid thee view the scene before
thee
With calm humility and silent hope.
Thine is a path by snares and toils attend
ed,
Yet, lady, in thy prudence I confide,
Thou art not by mere mortal aid befriend
ed,
Prayer is thy stay, and Providence thy
guide:
And should thy coming years with ills be
laden,
Thou safely may’st abide the storms
of- life.
If the meek virtues of the Christian mai
den
Shine f >rtb as brightly in the Christian
wife. .

perty of Mrs. Margaret Marshall, at the

Allhough Jimmy had been long in this
: country, it seems that not the first princi
: pies of the C!n iMian religion could be en
grafted on his mind. To his dying day
he believed, that after death, he would
return to the land of his fathers. But
Jimmy was an honest man and a faithful
servant and sentinel, for Mrs Marshall
felt that all was safe when she left home if
the key was in possession of Jimmv: nut
to white or black would he have de
livered it hut v ith the loss of his life.
A Card -—The undersigned, having, in
the last six years advanced from his own
private resources, about thirty thousand
dollars to sustain an independent press 1
1 at the seat of the national government, is
| no longer able to continue so great a sac
rifice. Hoping to obtain a local mercan
tile patronage, which would meet this
' extra expenditure, the publication of tin*
paper was transfered to i’aitimore,arid ins
anticipations would have be fully realized,
but for the derangement ol the currency,
which has not only arrested commeiciai
j operations, but prevented Iris southern j
1 and western subscribers from making
■ their usual remittances: the consequence
i <*f which has been, that the receipts have
fallen so far below Ins expectations, that
he feels himseif compelled to inaku a per
isonal appeal to the public forth.it ; id,
| which, under the circumstances, he be
lieves will be given. For this purpose,
lie has entered upon a tour of the South
ern and VVestei n States, and takes the
liberty of inviting .such of the citizens of
Fredericksburg and the vicinity, as may
be inclined to do so, to meet Dim at the
Court house this evening, at 5 1*. M..
