G., in reply to a letter of his to Mrs. Francis D. Gage, inquiring of her what she thinks of the Fugitive Slave Law, received the following poetical answer, which not only has the spirit of true poetry, but breaths senti ments that should be chearished in the hearts of all true friends of liberty. Ed Frek'x. From the Ohio Repository. "If yonr heart has burned with as deepen indig nation as mine has, since the passage of that r u gitive Law," it must be pretty well charred. But siill, lam pioud of our country for I know and feel thttt it is not the mauv, Ihe goon aud the true that have done that evil thing. Oh that I had the in spirution of a Sliukepp-are, h Bvron, or even a Ile- nmns or an Osgood, while I answer your question Blame me not if my song is tame my spirit is not, Dn you ask whnt I think? Do yon ask what I feel? Ciiuie my thoughts from iUejU? Is my heart made til sift I? Does the tninb skip and play, when he hears the wolf hnttl? Dos tils' NiL'htingnle sing in the vhtw of (he owl? Do the deer oer the green hiis,go bounding no more? Has the e;ile forgot oil pioud pinou to soar: H;t e justice and mercy deserted the e;rl..; Love, kindness and feeling the home & the hearth; Could you think that aught else from my spirit would flow. But a dirge for my Country of sorrow and woe? A 'irge for my Country of guilt aud of wrong, A dirge for the weak, broken down by ihe strong, A dirge for the glory that's passing hwhv, A dirge for our Fillmore, our Webster, our Clay? Woe, woe to the few, who have sullied our stars. Who've forgotten ourheroes, their toils &. their scars; The curse of ihe victim shall b'ackeii each name, The scorn of the line men shall hand it to fame As a blot, a pollution where'er it is trused, A word to be hated, dishonored, disgraced. Oh Northmen! O Northmen! beware of the honr When you sell yourselves out to the Slave holding power. When you barter your soul for a five dollar fee; i beware how you take up the shackles, to bind The limbs that have left a harsh master behind. Beware how yon stand in the way of the brave Who has ma ohood to feel he will not be a slave. Beware, if vou covet such bloodshed and strife. How you trifle with what is far dearer than life; fr or hands strong and willing, Tom hill top oc plain, Will dare you to fasten the 'fugitive's chum.' Oh! who were your sires! Came they not f.om that band Who snurn'd the oppressor with heart & with hand, Who with sword of Rebellion bouud firm on their thigh. Went forth with a strong will to be freeman or die? Signed iteir hands not that great declaration that we o boast; that all men are born equal and tree. And now will you sully the name of those sires. Wilt you pull down home altars and put out home hres7 Will you break the bruised heart tor the tinge. of the skin. And smother the Godlike that's burning within! Oh Northmen! Oi. Northmen! beware of the day When vou place yourselves thus in hostile array Uainst the seeker ot t reedum, wnntrrer nt nueg Though his skin may be sab e, his soul may be true. Is Ihe Negro a man? Hath his voice not atone, A language, a music, that answ ers your own! Hath he not the same hopes; hath he not ths same fears! Feels he not the same joys; weeps he not the same tears! Do not the same love s make his pulse wildly start, Are not wile mother sister, as dear to his heart. Bears he not the same sorrow; the same chastening rod; Has he not the same Savior; hashcnotiliesjm. God? Oh Northmen! Oh Northmen! will vou be the knave That wilt turn out to fetter the Fugitive Slave, And hind like a beast for a master's cmirol. The man to whom God gave n reasoning soul, And help bear him b:.ck lo Slitvedom again. To toil out his years 'uealh the lash and the chain? A curse to the land where his sweat drops shall fall, A curse to thn counirv that holds htm in thrall. Far better thou wert cast in the depth of the sea. Than that one in Gail's image should cease to be free 11 s c 1 1 1 a n c o u s . Primers. A true republican looks with sympathetic interest upon nil classes of men who earn their bread by the sweat of the brow ; but of course there must be vocations for which one has a particular regard, and we confess we know of none mure important, nor a class more gener ally useful, than that of printers. From a long flailv mid i-oiiMtanl association with them, wo j li.ive !e li ned to lok upon them as one large fiiiiiiy nervous. jnvial, thoughtful, witty, bilious, i poor proud, willing-, talkative in relation to whom we stand ms a sm t of half-brother, or ! socond-cousin on a luntr visit to them. There i they stand at their cases breathing machines, magical aut'imatta daugt-rreotyping, as it ' were, the pasiiii; scenes of life's changeful panorama. Sending forth into the world the ! world's history of itself, with such a generally I accurate minuteness, such order nnd punctu ! a:iity, that Ihe unadvised world conceive, if ! they think anything about their benefactors, ! that the toil is not only easy but amusing the printer has such a fine chance lo get the first news. Favored race! the average duration of a printer's life is estimated at twenty-eight years! Agreeable and healthy must be the occupation that has such an effect upon the system. A printer is litte rally a galley slave, though he is nominally paid for his labors. What amount of wages will compensate him for the loss of proper exercise, pure nir and reasonable sleep ? How much gold will purge the lead from his system ? What ecstatic en joyment is there in his employment which, in the round of hisabreviated years will compen sate him for the years he is deprived of? He looks upon the fair vista of a "happy old age" as Moses viewed the land of promise a vision of beauty not his fortune to realize. Vte really think that if there is anything which an age of intelligence like this has to re proach itself with, it is neglect of the printers, in view of their scanty rewards and their hope less, refugeless, unhealthy drudgery. Emty praises may be bestowed upon them by some artful, political demagogue, and they may be toasted at festivals, in a conscending way, but words will not reward them, nor build an asy lum for the consumptive, nor put bread into the mouths of the printer and his family, when temporarily or permanently thrown out of work by dull business, or of the sickness re sulting from his vocation. Hard life and ill rewarded. (Boston Waverly Mag. o Two carrier pigeons, let loose by Sir James Ross, one of the seekers for Sir John Franklin, have arrived at Ayr, Scotland, and made their way to their formor dovecote. One bore the mutilated nnd illegible remains of a letter; it had apparently been shot at, having lost its legs. It is supposed that they had flown about two thousand miles. Sir James took five such pigeons with him, "It is a curious fact," says some entomolog ists, "that it is only the female musquito that terments us." A bachelor friend says it is not at all "curious." A Farmer's Life. I The TTon. .Tospnli R Williams hna rpcpntli' d0iver(,d an ,1(drt,ss before the Micliigan State A,r,icultial Society, at Ann Arbor, which is distinguished by the soundness of its views no less than by the perspicuity with which they are advanced. We sincerely wish that we could attora room, consistently with our engagements, for the whole of this sterling production ; but bsing unable to do so, we pre sent to our readers an extract from it, devoted to a consideration of the farmer's calling. It is as follows: "The best faculties of men must be devoted to the farmer's pursuits; the best intellect must be engaged in it; and the farmer's life must bo field wide and attractive enough for the engrossment and developement of every human faculty, or error.or ignorance and thrift lessness, will not be explored, nnd the calling will not secure the elevated position it deserves Happily a rapid change is perceptible. The realative position of professional, mercantile, and farming pursuits are changing day by day, the hrst are no longer sougnt with such avid ity, the last no longer shunned. A wise man should never encourage his children to as sume the duties, vexations, and hazards of pre carious and unhealthy pursuits, no matter how dazzling the prospect, how brilliant the prize. There is a higher object than wealth to be gained sound sleep and sound health; higher object than personal distinction a com posed conscience. In limes past there seems to have been a kind of infatuation among the farming communitv in regard to evasion of their honorable calling. Thirty years ago a father was prons to act with his children as though he himself followed a degraded call ing. He seemed to deem professional or mer cantile life the only road to high respectabili ty, or social or official distinction. Ihe Web sters, the Wrights, and the Fillmores, were not retained to ennoble their own, but crowd ed off to illustrate and adorn some other profes sion. Jt has somewhat mended of late. It bids fair to become perfectly sound. It cer tainly will, if men will speak the truth, and hear the truth, and practice on its precepts. i he world will never regard the farmer's call ing as the most honorable till it is so cherished by himself. In public estimation a pursuit is appreciated at the value placed upon it by those who follow it. Turn back, then, the tide of public sentiment among the agricultural population. 1 he sturdy sense ot many a stur dy farmer pierces the gauze delusions thrown around the fanciful and frivolous life of the townsman. In the expression of his judgment sonnd, be yet practically may have sought all his lite to makf. his children the very butter flies he detests. If he would have his occu pation take rank as the most respected and most dignified among me,., he must not him self act as though he regarded itasa dull and stupid exercise of human powers. I know not so small a fni m, so limited a garden, that may not engross all a man s (acuities and con sume all his leisure. The time may be dis tant when each farmer may be a geologist, a naturalist, a chemist.but the time has arrived when the application of science to agriculture is producing a peaceful, certain, and gigantic revelation, elevating the calling, multiplying its results, increasing its comforts, and promot ing a higher civilization of the race. "A farmer should not consider it presump tion, but a duty, to gladden his home with all true, and genial, and intrinsically valuable comlorls, that shed a glow and attractiveness around the private home of the citizen. He can make it more inviting. There are few comforts and appliances about the home of a townsman which a countryman cannot enjoy. There are a thousand pleasures around a coun try residence which all the capital of a city cannot buy. A farmer surveys from his win dow with unalloyed delight the held now 'groaning by superior cultivation, under twice the crop of previous years. While he gains it, the world gains it It is so much added to production. But multiplied and dubious are the ways in which a townsman makes his gains. Sometimes 'tis the pound of flesh. Sometimes 'tis extortion. Some times n doub le value is given to the raw material, but of tener his gain is loss to another. To say the least, the townsman is sumetimes exposed to the inevitable necessities of expediency and dishonor. From such necessities the farmer can, if he will, always be free. God made the country, man made the city.' Just so superior as God's works are to man's works just so far are the studies of the coun try to the studies of the town. If you look upon the rich and gorgeous developement of nature from spring to fall, from the tiny germ to the abundant crop, with no more delight than on piles of stone, and brick, and mortar, then your life anywhere will be dusiltory, hard, and dulL When he gazed upon the miracle of his own frame, in awe admiration, David exclaimed : 'I am fearfully and wonderfully made.' Yet each plant and spire of grass, each tree and fruit, each creature, every form of vegetable and animal life, is a growing and living miracle, no less wonderful than the frame of man. If he studies them all as living illus trations of scientific truths, and he delights at each new discovery of the capacity and prop erties of a plant or an animal, and each new insight into the laws which regulate its propa gation and perfect growth, then indeed will a uirmer become a philosopher and a man of science, and his lite will be a ceaseless round of triumphant experiment and success. From the most trifling act, to the performance of the highest duty of a noble calling, his life will be full of dulightful satisfaction. The favorite domestic animal, which he has watched and and fed from a nursling, seems to lick his hand in gratitude, and almost eagei to contribute to his support. Look along that avenue of state ly trees, groaning beneath an abundance of de licious fruit, or throwing a refreshing shade over the weary traveler. But yesterday it was a bundle of mere twigs, which he providently brought home, grasped perhaps in a single hand. It may be that wide fields around him have been transformed from the wilderness by his energy, and now blossom like the rose. No groans nor tears, no sinks of misery and crime, no squalid povert)', nre witnessed in his daily walks, and in the performance of his dai ly duty. His mind need not be tortured with intense anxiety because struggling on the verge of commercial ruin. He runs less haz ard of having his body racked with every dis ease to which muscle and nerve, head and stomach, are liable. But I fear I am straying wide from my subject. I wished to show that the pursuits of a farmer may be rendered the most intensely interesting, the most noble, and the most engrossing of all the faculties, of both body and mind, of human occupations. As soon as it is made so, it will become the most profitable and thrifty also. What a farmer wills his life and profession to be, that will it prove." Official Vote of Ohio.

He made ample provis ion for his wife, giving her three large store houses and a lot, and more than a hundred shares of bank stock, and six or eight slaves in Louisville, Reetucky. To his sou Richard he p-ave his plantations in Mississippi and j Louisiana, and twenty thousand dollars. 1 Mrs. Bliss and Mrs. Wood he gave thousand dollars each, and to the former then unmarii- cd. several negro women. It was h;s wisl that the plantation should not be divided fur ten years, and from the proeecds of the crops he directected that his daughters should re ceive twentv thousand dollars each in ndditinn to the sum before mentioned. Judge McGhee of Mississippi was made his executor. He made provisions for the payment of a security debt of $1,000; he owed "nothing on his own aceount. He desired that his servants should be moderately worked and kindly treated the old ones to be taken care of and made j comfortable. The editor of the Layfayctte Courier, in speaking of a venison dinner given by a land lord in that city, says, "The press and other distinguished citizens were invited." How modest. Does said editor go out often ? Dr. Johnson once proposed that all matches should be made by the Lord Chancellor, af- firminr that the result would be quite as great an amount of domestic happiness as is produced by the actual system. The late Sir Henry Bate Dudley, when editor of the London Morning Post, was the first person who introduced the names of la- dies of the fashionable world into the columns j of a newspaper. Farewell of the Sou J to tbe Body. Compttnion dear the hnnrsdraw nig-h, The sentence cpeedslo die, lo die; So long in mystic union held. So close in strong embrace compelled, Hoiv canst thou bar Ihe dread decree. Thai strikes thyclisping nerves from me? To Him, who, on this mortal shore. The name encircling vestment wore, I'o Him I look, to him I hend. To Him thy shuddering frame commend. If I have ever caosed thee pain. The throbbing brest. the burning br.iin, With earns and vigils turned thee pale. Or scorned thee when thy str-iigth did fail, Forgive! forgive! thy task doth ceasp, Friend! Lover! let us part in race. That thou didpt sometimes clog mr course, Or with thy trifling check my force. Or lure from heaven my wavering trust, Or bow my drooping wing to dual, I blame the not; our strife is done: I knew thou wert the wenker on: The vase of earth the trembtingclod, Constrained to hold the breath of God. Well hath thon in my service wrought: Thy brow hath mirrored forth mv thought, To wear my smile thy lips have glowed, Thy tear to speak my sorrow flowed; Thine ear hath brought me rich supplies Of varying tinctured inlodies; Thy hands my pronited dfeds hnve done, Thy feel have on my errands run; Yes, thou hast marked my hidHing well, Faithful and true Farewell!

Tlie Micheaimas Goose. For the following titbit we have been in debted lo that admirable artist in the literary Cuisine, Mr. WTilliam HowitL W'e find it in Year Book of the Country. which our read ers may find in a very neat Harperain,volume at Taylor and Maury's "There have been merry times a Michael mas who would believe itJ? i'et there have been merry limes a Michaelmas. Mayors and aldermen were then elected, and made tliei bows to each other; and be sure there were mere doings when mayors and aldermen, were in the case. Stubble geese like the alderman, were now in prime condition; but being the weak, according to the proverb, went to the wall, and thence to the kitchen and twirled np the spit It was a jolly day in old mother Church : she ordered every body that could get it to eat a goose in honor of St Michael and all tbe angels; we may sup pose because they were not such geese as to quarrel with their comforts in heaven at tne suggestion of Lucifer. So in church and cor poration, in abbey and town hall, in farm and cottage, there was a universal eating of fat geese; and nobody that 1 ever heard ot com plained of the injunction. Queen Elizabeth was eating her goose at the time that the news of the defeat of the Spanish Armada was brought to her, and no doubt she thought the Spaniards great and very green geese for having come there, and that they would be nctich greater if they ever came again. "Jiver after, Queen Kess most nssidously ale her gosse on Michaelmas, and, probably, with Spanish chestnuts, as people on the Continent do now; or, if she did not, she would not have repented it if she had, for it is a princely addition. Queen isess ate her goose nil the more nssidouslv because it was an old saying, that if vou ate your goose at Michael mas, you would have plenty of money all the year round a prescription so pleasant, that if its efficacy were at all proportioned to its agreeabless, people would be geese.indeed, not to comply with. How indeed, could any one desire a .pleasanter way of replenishing a pur pose? Queen Bess was always dreadfully in want of money, however; and as this come to be seen, and not the less to be felt by those who had the taxes to pay, and as no more armadas came to be defeated, people lost all faith that Robert Southey had, when he addressed one in a sonnet, and asking the goose where it could have been so bravely fed nnd received no answer, added of himself: But this I know, that thou art very fine Seasoned with sage, with onions, and port wine. "Jolly limes, then, it is clear there have been at Michalmas. Into these, except in the city of London, there has been made a dread ful inroad by the Municipal Corporation re form act, which forbade all eating of Michael mas goose in a corporate capacity. Driven out of convents and corporations, yet I imagine roast goose at Jlichaelmashnds a welcome re ception in many a farm, gentleman's, nnd other private house. Roast pigs no longer run about with oranges in their mouths, crying "Come eat me I" but stubble geese really do seem to meet you at every turn, and cackle out invitingly that pathetic request. At markets and poulterers they crowd upon you; in lanes and upon commons they nibble at your heels, and hiss to inform you that thoy are fat and foolish, and bog you to introduce them to a sage. They stand m flocks fit stubblefield gates, aud look imploringly; every where yon are called on to note that they are no longer rxreen, but have grown grey and : corpulent, and have but one earthly desire H, ami tnat is to oe aone Drown, inere !' no resisting this.

A dispatch from Kanesville, Missouri, states lat a tremendous conflagration has occurred !'n that region, caused by the Omaha Indians, j who set on lire the dry grass ou the prarie. I The wind was very strong nt the time and i!e H 'mcs spread with such rapidity that n j reat many of the fences, outstanding crops j -md some buildings fur miles around, were envei..pv;i in one sneet m nre. The Indians just previous to the conflagration were discov ered in the act of setting lire to the prane in a number places. The Omahos inhabit a portion of Missouri, territory some sixty miles above Fort Leaven worth. They are deseribed as one of the most dangerous and treareherous of the In dian tribes, and will be likelv to cause th pioneer farmers of the backi vads a great deal ' I of trouble.

Farmer N., of Newbury, was a miserly old codger, Sometimes, in his eagerness to grasp the dimes, he would run rather close to tha boundary line which seperates honesty from dishonesty ; and he has been known to go so far as even to step upon the line. I will not say he ever got fairly over, but he came o near doing it 'twas hardly worth a dispute He was deaf as a haddock as a very post and when ocassion required, he was more deaf than both of thse similes but together. He once sold ft load of hay to his neighbor who, contrary to N.'s expectations, after see ing it weighed, stayed So see it unloaded. But a few forkfuls were pitched off, when bouncing big rock rolled from off the load then another and then a third, came "bangl" upon the barn floor. "Whtt's this?" queried the buyer in a loud voice. "Most nil herd' grass, this year," replied the deaf man. - But see here!" continued the other, pointing t the boulders which lay arrayed In judg ment against the dishonest Layman, what does all this mean?" "Shan't cut nigh o much hay this year as I did last,", replied the dealer in herd's grass. Just as he had finished the last sentence, down thunder ed a rousing junk of granite making a deep indentation in the barn floor with one of iu sharp angles. "I say, neighbor N," scream ed forth the purchaser of fodder; "I want to know what in h are these ?" pointing to the boulders and big lump of granite. Old N. took a mighty forkful of the herd' grass, gave it a toss into the hayloft, then, leaning upon his fork, ejected Lis huge quid of tobacco and replaced it with a fresh one, took a view of the fragments of stone wall that lay before him, and with one af the blandest smil es replied, "Them 'ere is rocks!" . ' i to . Extraordinary Unman Curiosities. A. Mr. 8. B. Knox has bronght to Boston a boy and a girl, of the Kaanas, a tribe of an almost extinct race. I hey are described in the papers of that city as most singular' look ing creatures. The boy is thirty-two inches in height, and weighs sixteen pounds, and about ten years of age. The girl is twenty eight inches in height, weighs fourteen pounds and is supposed to be about 14 rears of age. Their heads are not larger than a new born infant's, and they are almost destitute of fore heads, while their noses are finely developed straight and long, and project at a well de fined angle. Their eyes are full dark and lus trous. Their heads are covered with strong dark hair, which descends forward nearly to the eyebrows. The face is very sharp, tha upper lip projecting, and tbe chin receding in a corresponding - degree. Notwithstanding the almost entire absenceof forehead, there ia . not in the profile view the least resemblance to the Simia tribe. They are said to belong (o the surviving remnant of an ancient order of priesthood, called Kaanas, which by con stant intermarriage with its own cast bas dwindled down to a few individuals, diminu tive in stature, and imbecile in intellect. Tbeir headi and faces resemble exactly tha hgures on the bas-reliefs in the temple rains described in Stephen's Central America. They are orphans, and at the close of a wat between two of the Aztec tribes, fell into the hands af a traveller named Hammond. They are lively, playful, and affectionate, but' all attempts to teach them a word of English have thus far proved unsuccessful; they occassios- ally utter a few gibberish sounds. . ,' Crazy People. . It is generally considered a terrible calam ity for a person to go crazy ! There are very few persons who are not wild infatuated, or, m plain terms, mad, unpon some subject or oth ther. Some are crazy about politics, and some about religion some are crazy after money, and some after wine and women some are crazy about unity, and some about trinity some are crazy about banks, and some about railroads; some are crazy about law, and some about physic; some are crazy about (heir own existence.and some about the existence of their neighbors. In fact, when a man thinks con. stantly and intently on a favorite theme, his mind is apt to run into vagaries and be will become, to all intents and purposes, crazy about that which most interests him, while at the same time perfectly sound and reasona ble on all other topics. When these vagaries are indulged and courted by nervous irritable persons, the mind becomes diseased, and delir ium finally ensues. Cin. NonparieL 1 The Tnrkls& Empire, A very interesting article appears ia the dnily Advertiser, on the the present condition of the Turkish Empire, showing the ameliora tion which it has undergone during the reign of its present sovereign, and that of his im mediate predecessor. The article is presumed to be from the pen of Mr. Brown, who accom panied the Turkish Ambassador. He says that standing army of the feultan is composed of about 120,000 men, divided in to six corps, composed and commanded wholly by Musselmen. Another corps is now being formed near Danube, on the Hungarian fron- ler. Christians are exempted from military duty by the payment of a tax. The Sultan's navy is composed of from eighty to ninety vessels of two three-deckers, 11 seventy- finirs fifteen frigates, eight corvettes, twenty nine brigs and schooners, six steameres, of from 400 to 450 horse power, and fourteen tliers of various powers. Some of the best of these ships were built by Americans of iSew York, tho late li. it- .ct;ord, and . Rhodes. The Editor of tn Boston Post perpetrates the following: "I A Lady's Jest.

At least one-half of the company didn't see the force ofthe comment; but it was very just one for all that.
