Fremont, April 28, 1849. IP at tr-g, Froin the Home Journal. THE INDIAN SUMMER. There is a time, just ere the frost Prepares to pave old winter's way, When autumn, in a revery lost, . The mellow day-time dreams away. When summer comes, in musing mind, To gaze once more on hill and dell. To mark how many sheaves they bind, And see if all is ripened well. With balmy breath she whispers low, The dying flowers look up and give Their sweetest insense ere they go, For her who made their beauties live. She enters 'neath the woodland shade,, Her rephyrs lift the lingring leaf, : And bear it gently where are laid . The loved and lost ones of its grief She seeks the shore, old ocean heaves, In gladness huge his mighty breast; Prisons his wild winds in their caves, And basking in her smiles, is blest At last old Autumn, rousing, takes Again his sceptre and his throne, With boistrous hand the tree he shakes, Intent on gathering all his own. Sweet Summer, sighing, flies the plain. And waiting Winter gaunt and grim, Sees miser Autumn hoard his grain, . And smiles to think it's all for him. Uli e c 1 1 1 a n o n s . THE FIiIIiT. From Eliza Cook's Journal. "Rt wants style! I should be bored by such a man. . - "But he has sense ; and that is a thing that wears better and longer than style. 'fshaw! look at htm drawling there, with his hands fumbling about his breeches pock ets, lhat is always a mark of a man s breed ing; when he does not know what to do with his hands, depend upon it he is ' Well what? . " 'Why, little better than a booby. I could never get on with such a man.' 'And yet you have accepted him.' . 'Oh ! just because no other is in the way at present' 'Then you are trifling with that good crea ture's heart' 'There, again good creature! Whoever heard of your good ereature being any thing but a ninny ?' Well, it is not my business; but I cannot help thinking that you are in a fair way of achieving a very unenviable reputation as a 'Say the word a coquette!'" 'No, not a coquette something worsen a flirt' 'And pray, most sweet coz, tell me the de ference.' ,..--;..-! i 'A coquette is a natural being full of heart -eager to be beloved; and she plays off her pretty graces in older that she may attract, and win a lover; a coquette is rather rustic perhaps, but I have known such in a ball-room like this. But a flirt! ' 'Ah ! do tell us now what a flirt is.' 'Very well; though you must excuse the severity of my definition. A flirt is an artifi cial being, very deficient in heart She has gay manners, clever repartee, ready sarcasm, and an unbounded love of admiration from the other sex. As she gets tired of one lover, she throws him off as she would a pair of old gloves, and tries on another and another.' ' 'What! so many? 'In this course she grows reckless, is often unfeeling, and generally short-sighted ; for she becomes fade, and then lovers fail to come at her bidding; and she is surprised in her ad vanced womanhood to find that, while she has made many victims, the greatest of all is her self. In short -' 'Well, really, I must cut you short myself. Who ever heard such rubbish ? But here comes Tom Dubbin to relieve me and think of us losing such delicious music- the Strauss ! Well, Tom?' ! ' ' ; 'You'll take a turn, of course ? ' I know you never resist 'La fascination!' ' ' And with her head upon his shoulder, his hand in hers, his arm encircling her beautiful person, away the couple went round the ball room to the strains of one' of Strauss' Waltzes. A pair of eyes followed them sorrowfully in their gyrations. William Benson was certainly out of place in that gay assembly, thottgh'Jjis heart was there. He loved this girl, and had been facinated by her; for she was intelligent as well as beautiful. But she was .altogether wanting in heart ;. it had been fritted away, or hardened, or closed up, that the most beauti ful quality of woman's nature had disappeared. Benson had been already rebuffed by her that night; she thought he had danced clumsily; and certainly the art of moving his limbs about gracefully, after the most approved style of dancing masters, bad not been cultivated by him. He was proud and would not conde scend to fawn upon her; though he loved, and had offered himself, and been accepted, be would not presume upon that standing, but would rather leave her still free to take her own course. He tho't she studiously avoided him, for she had hurried away from him across the room to her cousin, with whom we have just found her conversing. She was certainly a beautiful girl. Tall ta per, and lithe nothing could be more charm ing than the round and oval outlines of her figure as she glided along the floor. Her dark brown hair enhanced the purity of her completion, and her eyebrows arched over a pair of dark, blue eyes, which glittered with life, as she turned her delicate little head from side to side like a bird, showing the alabaster curve of her stately throat. Her mouth was the sweetest of mouths, deliciously formed, full of fascination when she smiled ; though sometimes there lurked upon her lips a polish ed curl, which made you fear that her smile did not quite express the real feeling of the moment No wonder that ouryouth followed with aching eyes, and with a sad heart, the movements of this beautiful creature. She felt his eyes were upon her, and she was the more bent upon piquing him. Asid uously avoiding his gaze, she devoted herself to her partner, whose nature was very conge nial to her own a dashing, and rather imper tinent youth. 'Oh, by the way,' said he, as he led her panting to her seat, 'when does your affair with Benson come off?' 'Impudence ! how dare you ? ' was her an swer, flapping her perfumed handkerchief in his face. He adroitly caught it in her hand. 'Shall I, your most faithful slave, carry the Don't you see him i 'No! I see nobody that answers your de scription. What can you mean ?' 'Why, Benson, to be sure. You know you are going to be married to him everybody knows that. 'Well I don't What do you think of that?' 'Ah! that's all nonsense. But here he comes himself. And now I resign my charm ing charge. Well, Benson, you are an envia ble fellow, to be sure. Au revoir ?' ; And Dobbing whisked off, and -was soon whirling round with a new partner. 'You enjoy yourselt mucb, liiope, dear Ju ha,' observed the youth. 'Well, why not? Of course we are all here for that purpose.' 'Surely. And yet do you know, I' rarely feel more oppressed than at one of these gay parties? -. s 'The more fool you !' she muttered. But he seemed not to hear her remark. 'I always contrast the glare and glitter, and noise music though it be, as I confess of such places, with the charming quiet and con verse of one's own fireside ' 'With a dowdy wife and a pair of dip can dles for companions. 'Dowdy ! Who would ever have dreamed of such a thing ? You dowdy ! 'Ob, excuse me, I could not be the person you were thinking ot "Why ? Who else could grace my house, and make mv hrestde happy ; 'Oh, I fear, with your serious tastes, you will require for a Grace, some heavy person, to make you happy some such individual as Miss Murdison, for instance; see how the floor shakes under her ponderous tread.' And here she gave one of her silver-ringing laughs not a very hearty or cheerful laugh was a little bit studied; and she rather prided herself upon it, since some incognito poet had, in certain verses he had sent her, styled it 'Julia s silver-music laugh.' Benson was rather nettled both at the re mark and the mirth she expressed, at the ex hibition of one less graciously dealt with by nature than lierselt. lie bad betore noted this unfavorable feature in Julia's character. 'It is scarcely charitable,' he quietly observ ed, to make fun pf the infirmities of others.' 'Infirmity do you call it? Miss Murdisen infirm ? why look at her! she has the strength ot a giant, and the dimensions ot ' 'Stop, Julia, stop t'is realh' too bad !' 'And who asked you for your wise opinion, Mr. Benson, as to whether it is either good or bad? Who cares? And here her blue eyes flashed with hre. 'I ask your pardon, Miss Julia, for I see have offended you again.' 'To tell you the truth, you bore me.' 'Ah, Julia (for I will still call you so once more,) 1 fear your heart turns from me. have discerned it before, but shut my eyes to the tact.' 'Well, if they are now open to the fact keep them so Dobbing, come here ! you dance the Schottische, don't you ?' Ah, charming Julia with you any thing. And away they went again. 'Benson looks ratber dumpish." 'Pshaw ! the brute's got his quietus, I think.' ibe rooms were Juu. A wbtst party occu pied one drawing room, and gay music re sounded from the other. I hate whist at those crowded evening parties; for there you cannot give yourself thoroughly up to "the quiet rig or of the game," as Mrs. Battle termed it; and so I soon found myself among the more bril liant and juvenile portion of the assembly. A young lady young you might certainly style her, though it was obvious, from her finished manner, that she bad seen many sea sons sat at the piano and sung, with admira ble execution, Spohr's recherche song of "A bird sat on an Alder Bough." The notes trilled through her beautiful throat, clear and glittering as diamonds. Thera was no reserve, no blushing insipidity, like- the lark, as she springs, exultingly, from her nest in the sky, and pours a flood ot melody-ou the listeners ravished ear. Murmurs of applause followed the lady, as she was led from her seat at the instrument, to make room for another perfor mer; and then it was that 1 noticed the ex quisite grace, the full, round beauty, the fas cinating manner, of this beantiful woman. Many admirers seemed to Dover round ner; but there was one, in especial, whom I had no difficulty in setting down, in my own mind, as the "favored one." He paid all those lit tle attentions which are so charming in a drawing-room, or, indeed, anywhere, indica ting polish and manners; and though some French cpnic has very cruelly styled these ".the hypocricy of society," they are very charming, nevertheless, in their place. Taking advantage of a vacant seat near to the accomplished singer, I soon became an unconscious listener to a conversation going on between her and a beautiful and fair girl who sat by her side. 'I think I could love him myself,' said the fair girl. 'Then, why don't you propose?' 'Julia, how cutting you always are. You know I only jest' 'There's much truth in a jest love. But I can spare him there are many more as good as he.' 'What are you refusing still?' 'My love, no woman of spirit dreams of fling ing herself away upon the first that offers.' The first?' - 'No, not quite the first, I confess.' 'Pray, do confess a little more ? What is the number of the slain '?' 'Pshaw ! not worth talking about' 'Well, there was Benson, you know.' 'Oh, the horrid bore ? 'But what a good, kind husband he makes, and what a charming wife he has got at last' 'Dowdyish.isn't she ; but a good kitchen wo man, I dare say.' 'Oh, she's good in all ways, and 1 think Ben son very happy.' 'And very stupid.' Then theie was Dubbing.' Ab, do stop Caroline. Dubbing was all heels; plenty of brass in his face, but none in bis pocket I hate your poor lovers.' 'Then there was' 'I really wont hear another word; let me turn the fire upon yourself. Tell me what of your affairs with Charles?' 'Hush! not a word.' 'Hasn't he spoken yet?' 'I can't tell.' 'Now, Caroline, you don't mean to tell me that he has been dangling on so long, without explaining himself? You love him ?' 'Oh, yes.' 'But what if he loves you not?' 'He does ! he does ?' gage d 'amour to the sighing youth ? Theo h'i has explained.' That is my secret" 'Ah! but if he changes?' 'I never dream of such a thing. I should love him still, because I could not help it' 'Don't make a fool of yourself, Carry. I fear you are a going to make a silly business of it He has no position.' 'He will make one; he is so clever.' 'Bah 1 all the world is clever now-a-days'. 'But he is affectionate, pure and noble mind ed.' "Why, child, you are talking of a thing which never existed. You are in the clouds." 'I am happy, though, and am satisfied to believe, and love, and hope on.' 'Poor siilv Carry.' Supper was announced and the conversa tion was interrupted. I kept near to the pair ot charming girls, and took eare to make my self aggreeable. . Being a Benedict,! was sus pected by neither. I was no "match," so the majestic flirt could be at her ease with me. 1 found her clever, almost too clever,' at repar tee ; brilliant in conversation ; and full of sa tire and wit She astonished, but did not warm you. I found the charminsr Caroline by far the more pleasing of the two a woman whom one could live and be hapny with. Julia's beauty dazzled and attracted the most, until you felt a touch of the thorns, which made you feel danger and shun it The young gentleman, her favored admirer, fluttered about her for a time, but shortly dis appeared to give place to another, like bim to disappear and vanish into domesticity else where. Poor Julia! I watched her grow old. I saw her beauty becoming more stately and rigid, her wit becoming more savage, her temper more soured. Lovers fell away, and she ceased to be the observed of all observers. She was no longer the charming, fascinating Julia: she was the wit of a party still, but had ceased to be its belle. Pretty nothings were no longer poured into her ears; polite attentions ceased to be lavished on her ; other and younger beauties were asked to sing; and she sat apart, a lone woman. - Alas, the Flirt leads an unhappy life, and makes a sorry ending. She has stifled her heart-longings, and sealed up the fountains of her nature from which the truse happiness flows. If she looks back, it is upon triumphs which have left only regrets behind. She has drawn forth the feelings of others, but not to avail herself of them. Like a butterfly she has flown from flower to flower and sipped the sweets, but gathered no honey, for the evening, of her life ; and when her brief beau ty has fled, she leaves the world neither bet ter nor happier than she found it Sometimes the flirt marries, and then, instead of one per son, two are made miserable. She becomes fade and desperate, accepts buriedly, and is married, blie seeks an establishment per haps; tbe husband discovers that the showy woman be has selected for his wife has a small store of affection reserved for him. His ad miration ceases; but tbe flirt cannot exist without it, and she seeks for it elsewhere. The quiet duties of home are neglected and the curtain drops over scenes of domestic un happiness, if not worse. ibere are male flirts, too, in numbers men who have grown grey in heartless trifling with tbe tenderest feelings of the other sex. Spoilt puppies at an early age, they grow up with an increasing appetite tor admiration, which at length becomes the end and aim of their existence. Of all the abortions of men, we have no hesitation in pronouncing as the most miserable of all, the exhausted, padded, bewigged, and whisker-dyed Male thrt "Settin' on a Rail." An old farmer, a good deal of a wag, by the way, who lives in Logan county, had sev eral of bis sheep killed by the locomotive on the Mad River Railroad. ' He knew that it wat difficult to avoid such accidents, but, never theless took occasion to mention this loss to the conductor of the train by which the mis chief was done. The excuse was always given that the locomotive could not be stopped in time, tie determined to ascertain it there was as much difficulty in stopping as was pretended. ' Accordingly one day, about the time the morning train usually passed his farm he seated himself on one of the links of the rail with his back to the north. In a few minutes he heard the train, then the wistle of the Locomotive. But he didn't stir a peg! Again there was a prolonged whistle still he kept his seat, not even turned to "face the music Ibe Engineer knew that something was wrong with the man ; he was drunk or crazy, sure. He shut on the steam in a hurry the "wheel" in m front of the forward car was "screwed down" as a green horn remarked, and the train came to a dead halt A deputa tion, consisting of the conductor and several passengers, was soon on its way to wait upon the obstruction ahead. The farmer tarried till the committee came up, and then quietly- rose and speaking very pleasantly to the con ductor, remarked a3 he started toward home: I see you can slop when you try right hard," and went on his way rejoicing. It didn't take the committee many minutes to reach the cars, and the wistle fairly yelled as the locomotive passed the farmer's dwelling. ltic The Railroad to Spring The iron is laid on the track to jrfield. Springfield about 12 miles from this place. All the rails delivered here by canal are now down, audi the remainder for the upper division has been or is to be brought from Springfield. It is now stated that the Koad will completed to Springfield so as to have the cars running by Christmas. The work at a deep cut is pro gressing finely.

Mrs. Swisshelm says it is marvelously strange how a woman can think herself con tamined by the slightest intercourse with the victim of a seducer, but cover her face all over with smiles to receive the seducer himself. Mrs. Swisshelm, talks like a woman of good sense. A Pennsylvania whig paper thus announces the result of the election in that State. HO - THE MITTEJi. BY ONE OF THE CHAPS WHO GOT IT. ' - I knew a little girl, Bill, rl With bright and curling hair, , The prettiest in the world, Bill, And saucy as she's fair. Her eyes are like bright rubies, rare .,- . Her voice like music sweet But oh! with what shall I compare Her tiny, fairy feet With love my heart was smitten, Bill, Her hand I fondly sought, Nor thought I of the mitten, Bill But. oh! I should have thought! For though I swore to keep jiy vow, . As true as line or plummet She placed her hand upon her nose, , And said, 'you can't quite come it!' With grief my heart was riven, Bill, I humbly knelt again, - --'.-'. And plead as if for heaven. Bill, But oh! I plead in vain ! For while the same bright smile was seen, As at my first impulse, She said that I was rather green, . And wasn't nothing else! marriage Ceremonies. Amongst the Tartar tribes the ceremonies of marriage are somewhat remarkable. It is usual to settle some kind of dower upon the bride. A marriage ring is in use; but it is not as with us, placed on she bride's finger by tbe bridegroom, but is sent to her with con siderable form, and presents are interchanged between the families. Among all ranks the bridegroom appears on his wedding day in the ncnesi autre ana ornaments be can possibly obtain ; as was also the custom among the He brews, whence the significance of the beautiful figure in which the Psalmist compares the ris ing sun 'to a bridegroom coming forth from his chamber on the morning of his marriage day ; bence too, the prophet describes, not on ly the bride as adorning herself with her jew els, but the bridegroom also as decking him self with ornaments. On his marriage day the bridegroom receives the most obsequies attention lrom all around him; and he is treat ed with all the consideration and deference which inferiors pay to superiors of high rank. All who come to his presence sit below him; offerings are brought to him by his relations, and these are received by bis fnends with much ceremony, who on thnt day act aa his servants. 1 bey pretend to receive bis com mands as those of a monarch to seize one per son, to fine another, to flog a third. The joys in the house of the bride are of a more quiet character. She is bathed, perfumed, and ar rayed in the richest garments the family crn afford. She also sits in state, and, before she leaves her house, or tent, receives presents lrom many ot ber mends. V ben this cere mony is over, she is enveloped in a scarlet veil or wrapper; and is then mounted on horse back, and conveyed to the dwelling of her hus band, who receives her on the threshold.- On the morning that the bride is to be taken to her husband, her friends assemble at the tent of her father. If be be aehiefor elder of a tribe he is accompanied by all the horse men whose attendance he can command. The party then proceeds, accompanied by mu sic and dancing; and if the place of her desti nation be near, a circuitous route is taken that the enjoyment of this part of the ceremony may be prolonged. When they appear in the distance the bridegroom mounts bis horse, and attended by his friends, proceeds to meet the eavalcade. He holds in his hand an apple or an orange, and when be is sufficiently near to be certain of bis aim, he throws it at the bride with considerable force.. The bridegroom has ho sooner discharge the fruit than he wheels his horse around and rides off at full speed to his own tent, pursued with great ardor by all the horemen of the bride's party, emulous to seize the fugitive bridegroom before he attains the goal; and he who succeeds in this object becomes entitled to his horse, saddle, and his olothes. -This, however, is only exacted when the party is wealthy ; for among the poorer classes a lew pieces ot silver are paid, as a fine, to the successful pursuer. But the bride groom is very seldom taken ; for as it is a point ot honor tor him to escape, he is mounted on the fleetest horse the tribe can furnish, and his firiends do all they can to favor his retreat Another curious scene takes place when the bride reaches the tent which is to be her fu ture home; the women who have accompani ed her then gather round her, and implore her not to alight; while the husband's relatives also crowd about and beg that she w ill de scend. This is the moment of her power. , Every male of the family into which she is about to enter brings her presents, according to their ability, or their regard for her hus band. They ulso solicit her to give up part of the dower that had been agreed upon ; and it not seldom happens that their solicitations on this subject are afterwards repeated by the husband himself.

Myers was sentenced for five years instead of three, aa was before pub lished. The Doctor requested a bill of excep tions.

She weighs only 470 pounds. :,..! .... 'Com Bustle, Bustle!'. . A Miss Davis told the 'woman's rights ooa vention' that 'woman wanted aa equal chance to unfold her great, capacities.' We never heard the article called by that name before Miss Lucretia McTabb we beg pardon, Miss. Lucretia Mott told this same convention thai she didn't. want. any, milk and waterr-r policy of action ;'.an announcement which we regard as a slap at babydom quite worthy of an old maid. A third - female fanatic 'thought that Jenny Lind, in her public sing ing for the amusement of the tyrants over her sex, was vitiating female delicacy.' ,-. Anothet lady, Mrs. Ernestine . Rose, told startling fact She said, 'we have tongues;' no 004 ventured to contradict her. Mrs. Abby Kel ly Foster made one of her usual .mild sugt gestions.- Said Abby j ; , - -, ;-:; j ; 'Sauce for the goose is sance for the gao der. - We have the right to revolt, as did our fathers against King George the Third th right to rise up and cut the tyrants' throats. On this subject I scorn to talk like a womaq We must give them truth, and not twaddle; we mnst not be mealy-mouthed with, pur ,iyf rants in broadcloth and tight. breeches.. a Then rose up a be thing, named Charles Burleigh, with long hair like a woman's.. Ha did not exactly agree with Abby that the sex es should be dispensed with in the reorgani-r Zation of society: : He thought 'the two sexes , were different, and that man and woman were) sexes in soul as well as in body.' Mr, Chant ning made a queer suggestion 'that the sexes should be mingled together in schools and academies. Tbey must stimulate and improve each other,' - be said. . Miss . Lucretia Molt spoke again, under some excitement not from drink, but choler and said that w 'paid too much devotion to priestcraft, and ovt much attention to the bible.' -The bible, it should be remembered, teaches . woman her proper place and duties. Miss M. was humaix, enough to think that the right of woman to cut throats,' (memorandum to hide our only razor) 'in resisting despotism, was a debater able question, because many -contend for the doctrine of moral suasion'. But in deman ding woman's rights, she wanted no twaddle, -no milk and water but the plain and . naked, truth.' , Ah! Mr. Wendell Phillips, told " the. convention that the cobwebs and the saber-, stilions of tbe bible ought to be swept. awayw and that he wanted 'women to be mingled up in society, in the trial by jury, in represenla-s tion and in suffrage for. self-defence:' and, then he said that public opinion was the 'silliest thing in the world.' - There Mr. Phillips md a slight mistake he may find a much sillier; thing by consulting his mirror, Mr. Rosef again rose throughout the meeting and, after; telling the world that everybody talked of our; 'pilgrim fathers,' she demanded to know 'but who tells us of our. pilgrim mothers ?,' ' Who, tells us of our pilgrim grandmothers, pilgrim aunts, pilgrim wives, and pilgrim babies I . Mr. Wendell Phillips seemed to thmk .that,, the woman were great fools for promising -in . the marriage ceremony to love, honor, obey, . but Miss Mott, in reply, said it was the priest who used these objectionable works, and that; the Woman did nothing but respond "yes. Soy it' is evident lhat Miss Mott regards tbifr part, of the marriage ceremony as. snare fudge. We are glad that. 2we are already married. j 'Sometime ago,' said Misa Mott, if . a woman could make a shirt, turn a pancake, and write- . her name at her marriage, she was, educated.? So she was, for the wife of the best - man jrr the land. Now let us tell you Miss Mott; that the woman who can turn a pancake; scientifically can do a great many other things, well. We have tossed pancakes ourselves ; and tossed thenr into the fire- .;,. s ; Miss Harriet K. Hunt, of Boston, thought: women onght to practice physic, and Mrs. Ball of Worceter, (Mass) that the Scriptures ought; to be harmonized with tbe principles and ob jects of this movement, in order to secure the co-operation of tbe women ot our country.. We read in tbe Bible that God said unto Eve,. 'Thy desire shall be unto thy .husband, and, he shall rule over thee.'- Mrs. Ball evidently? labored under the impression that this wa abominable:; (We marvel if any of these to men we mean, of course, those of thera that are married are mothers,) Miss Brown" followed Mrs. Ball, and argued that what was said to Eve was not 'given as a law of- God,, as a predictipn of what would befal her in the state of sin and death to which she . and " her-' husband Adam, bad fallen.': -'Mis Brown quo-; ted the language of Paul, -'Wives submit? yourselves to your husbands,' and she show-; ed that this was an injunctiou to 'submit to a; necessary evil.' Which it is. Air. JBur-, leigb, the Miss with the long hair and panjs said. that the husband ought to share the care 4 of the children with tbe wife. , Mrs. Rose said; woman were inventive. -.' ; - : - ' . Sojourn Truth, a colored woman, and once a slave, 'expressed great reverence for God.j (This is gravely-repeated in the Tribune,; as 1 it were a compliment to the Supreme Being 1 bah!) Fred Douglas, the impudent nigger; shouted a speech, in which he said he advised the woman to go and dp likewise. Mr. Win., Loyd Garrison "felt that the spirit pf God had: brooded over that assembly," sso doubt ot it' in disgust at its .blasphemy,' impiety and, muck of every kind. Mrs. oarab lynd a wi-, dow, puffed herself as the prayer of ber hus- band's debts, and said that she exposed her-1 self there 'for the 'encouragement of her sisters (widows m general) from a sense of duty. This was the only woman that seems to hav done any good ui of the many that attended , this lunatic meeting. She had visited broth-1 els, and induced three . hundred -of, then? , wretched inmates to return to the pathpfytr-r tue. Miss Lucy Stone didn't want to have , written on her grave that she was the 'relict : of any body. Miss Lucretia Mott thought." that St Paul had never been married, thflt he ; was a miserable bache.or, and ignorant of the rights of women; and she inferred therefore;! that his teachings were not . good for mucb.
