It is related by some worthy historian that
“once upon a time” an almost interminable
number of folios were written, anil many
heads turned,in vain attempts to solve the ques
tion, “ Does the hook catch the fish, or the
lisii catch the hook.” There is another ques
tion of more local interest which has much
perplexed one head, if not more, in vain at
tempts to answer it satisfactorily. It is this—
“Hoes the patriot catch the partisan or the
partizun catch the patriot?” Alter 41 im
partial investigation,” “mature deliberation,’*
and “candid consideration” we are disposed
to decide in the negative; that is, that the
love of country originates in the love of par*
tv, and not as is vulgarly supposed exactly
the reverse; for tins most weighty reason,
viz: Not one short twelve-month since the
whole land echoed and re-echoed with the
j-1 n <11 n if of bells, and the roaring of cannon.”
Danners floated in the breeze, and the air was
*ent with the shouts of freemen !
“The Heavens, the earth, the very air
V, ^re 'Dl with patriots nle, \
roetsand akers every where
Seemed bur-C”? ^e . ’
Dm now, alas, ho'v changed ! No longer
does The “spacious Hail of Liberty groan
under tiie pressureol the niultiiuJed dense
masses” obstruct the public thorough-fa rc •—
Hie day is past—the Hall is deserted—the
lm.ltitude departed—the orators done.
Hot with the cessation of the crackling
blaze of party thorns, is the fire of patriotism
extinguished ? We trust not, although it
would indeed appear so. Not two weeks will
have elapsed ere the Recurrence of our na
tional anniversary, and .vet neither word noi
deed gives “note of preparation.’’ Suiely we
'ought once a year at least to lorget the dis
tinctions of Wing and Tory, Federalist and
I>emocrat, and lay ing aside ail parly or local
prejudices come up to the celebration of our
National birth-day, with the highter feelings
o: tiie American Citizen.

Cooper,of the British brig Emily, from Africa,
who has furnished the following intel
ligence. He left Sierra Leone on the 11th of
of May. When he left it was very sickly at
that place. A number of deaths had occurred,
among them was Sir John Jeremie. i he Gover
nor General, lie had been but a few months
in the country.
While Captain Cooper tv as at Sierra Leone,
two vessels came up from Monrovia, with pas
sengers bound to New York—the brigs Rudolph
Owning, and Mentor. They had some twen
ty passengers, among whom were the Rev. j
John Seys, the superintendent of the Metno
dist Mission in Africa, Mr. Jayne, late printer
of the Luminary, and Mr. and Mrs. Dupees.

Tippecanoe Mon cm r;\i—The peo;.:e cf
Indiana are discussing tne propriety ol erect
ing a monument to the memory of the Hero
who led on, and the men who fell on, trie held
ofTippecanoe. Against the propriety and jus
tice of such a move, the Michigan Gazette
thinks no argument can now he ollered. The
hero ol that bloody strife lias gone to his final 1
re>iing place, and U could not be charged iliat
the erection tf a monument was intended to
laud the living. Spencer, Warwick, Davies,
Owen, and a ho-t ofot. ers, sleep on that me
morable ground. Let tlie people of Indiana,
therefore, commemorate such an era in their
history, by the rearing ol’a pile that may p but
after ages to the worth and virtue o! tne il
lustrious dead._ _
