A fierce bor der irar is evidently to be the only protection nd hope of the Southern States. - "The people on the southern border will take down the guns with which their fathers slaughtered the Indians who stole tl eir cattle, and shoot the Yankees who steal their negroes. A foray into Pecnsylvania or Ohio, with buruinj to the ground, a few inch to tens as Harrisburg, and the hanging of a fere ct judge at this criminal tliief named Person, would soon teach tho amalgamating inhabi . tants of Pennsylvaniajatid Ohio, that the stcal ing'of their thickliped relations and superiors inthe South is not that delightful amusement they take it to be. It is thus that all the border people of civilized countries have been frared to virotect themselves. It was by ju dicious and decisive incursions only, by bloody fight and bloody seiges, by laying waste tlie land, and burninff the towns of the fierce and WW.

'"' The Providence joker, who paid $650 for Jenny Lind ticket it is said, wears boots made sharp at the toes with square heels. He built a house recently, had all the doors constructed to run on pulleys, like a window, not mounted upon hinges as usual, the nouse was built to receive a bride, who is reported to b very beauti&il. On the occasion of his marriage, instead of the usual tour, he sent his wife to Boston, and went himself to New York. Heis a ticket seller to the Railroad, and part of his duty consists of carrying the mail from the depot to the P. O. His horses and carriage are both curious affairs, well suit ed to so odd a genius. As a man he is pop ular good natared and though affording much mirth to his friends, is universally respected. The recent nccounts from Nicaragua which tato that a British naval force holds possession f the fort of San Juan, and that British auth ority is in ful exercise in that part of the State .f Nicaragua, arc fully confirmed by a letter from Mr. Chatficld to the Minister of Foreign Relations of Nicaragua. J t has been univer sally understood in this country that the treaty negotiated at Washington by Messrs. Clar- t-n and Buhvcr stipulated expressly for the withdrawal by Great Britain of all her claims to any prohctorate or oilier form of authority over any portion of the Musquito coast or any territorry pertaining to the States of Central , America. This understanding, we say, prt- vailed universally in ihe Uniled Sla es, and it; was deemed a matter of congratulation that Hwo great nations at the head of the commer cial world, could harmoniously unite in encour aging the great undertaking of connecting the two oceans by n ship canal for the bene fit of ad nations, with a mutual forbearance all attempts at securing exclusive advantages. Hutu seems that bngiaml is disposed to hold in her possession the A llanliu m the canal which is at the mouth of the San I Juan : and, so for as we can understand th ground of her resumption in this verv , impor- lanl particular, it would scene that, abondon- i ing tne secondary agency oi a i, fOiectoratc . l r over the Mosquito country, she constitute her self the legattee of that defunct system, and claims sovereignty now in her own right. It is impossible," says Mr. Chatficld, "that Nicaragua should be ignorant of her Britanic Majesty's relation to the Mosquito question, as it has before it the letter of Viscount Palmer- ston. of the date of the 15th of April last in which he declares in the most clear and direct terms the utter impnssihlity of acceding to the pretensions of Nicaragua. On the other hand the treaty of Messis Clayton and Bulwer about which we have so mnch to say, and in which vou express so much contltlonce ex- press!' reconize the Musnvilo Kinadom mid, sets aside the rights whirh you pretend jVica raona has on that coast" Whether the British governments resorts lo the quible of having given up her Protec torate over the Musquito coast, and taken sovereign possession in ils own name by virtue of a transfes from the ridiculous ape of a king, whom it had set up and crowned whether it will urge that it had thus acquired actual sovereignty over the coast in question before the treaty of Washington was negotiated, and that therefore the population of the treaty do not apply to territory in Central America al ready British whether this poor plea is to be put forward ns a means of escape from the plain and well understood obligations of the treaty compact, v.e may have opportunity to see hereafter, when inquiries from our govern ment ou the snbiect shall have duly answered. Baltimore American, i o Best Joke of the Season. About the time of the exitement in the vil lage of Kalamazoo, about the sudden death of eight or nine of those who took tea at the ex change, of that place, a family of Hollanders arrived in town. As a matter of course the excitement ran high; the authorities of the town mustered together a thousand feet of lumber and erected a pest house in a seclud ed spot in the forest into which they hustled the Hollanders with as little delay as possible notwithstanding the postestation of one of them who appeared to be a leader, who asserted that he had money enough to stay in any place. They were kept there for about tnree weeks, and on being released from their tem porary prison, one of them commenced the operation of purchasing property. He began upon Ex-Governor Ransom, and bought him out at $12,000. , He then bought out the Judge of the Court, (Hczekiah (i. Wells,) at $3,000. Henry Edwards was subsequently bought out, and at last accounts, his lordship of the pest house, was after Gen. Humphrey, Hon. Charles E, Stuari. Gen Maffat, Col. Van De Walker, and various others of the promi nent dignities of that region. To wind up with, he informed the gentlemen that there were a few more coming shortly who would lake the balance of the toicn. Del. Free Press. EngJis'i and our Girls. We wish the following might be copied upon the blank leaf of the book most seen, in every family: "The English girl spends more than one half her waking hours in physical amusements, which tend to devolop and invigorate aud ri pen the bodily poweis. She rides, walks, drives, rows upon the water, runs, dances, plays, sings, jumps the rope, throws the ball, hurls the quait, draws the I ow, keeps up the shuttlecock, and all this without having it forever pressed on her mind that she is there by wasting her time. She does this every day, until it becomes a habit which she will follow up through life. Her frame, as a natu ral consequence, is larger, her muscular sys tem better developed, her nervous system in better subordination, her strength more endu ring, and the whole tone of mine healthier. She may not know as much as the age of nine teen as the American girl ; as a general thing she does not; but the growth of her intellect has not been stimulated by hot house culture, and, though maturity comes later, it wiil pro portionably last longer. Eight hours of men tal application each day for girls between ten and nineteen years, or ten hours each day, as is sometimes required at school, with two hours for mals, one for religious duties, the remainder for physical exercises, are enough to break down the strongest constitution." Tbc Wy andois. The minutes of the late yearly meeting of Friends, held at Baltimore say: "We have been informed from the Indian Riii'onii nl V:iliiiiirfin lluit tlie Wi'jirirlf I n " . 1 tribe of Indians, to whom some assistance was formerly extended by this meeting, and who subsequently removed from their residence at bandusky, in the btate ot Unlo, into the coun try between the Missouri and the Ivanzas rirers,had concluded to relinquish their nation ality, and to hold their property hereafter in severality, and furthermcre had requested to be admitted as citizens of the United btates. "The commitee appointed to treat with them on the occasion represented, "That the Wyan dot people have so far advance in civilization as to be capable, generally', of managing their own affairs, and are qualified and calculated to become useful citizens a large portion of them being already engaged in agricultural pursuits. "In accordance with these views, their sev eral requests were acceded to by the Govern ment and these Indians have been accepted as citizen of the United Slates. 'Maybe smoking is offensive to some of you.' said an inveterate smoker, as he entared one of the ferry hoats. "Yes, yes," immediately responded a dozen voices. "Well," said the inquirer, immediately plac ing his cigar between his lips, and puffing away at it for dear life, "'tis to some folks." Trutli rn ronvcrKatioii. The love of truth is the stimulus to all noble conversation. The tree which springs from it way have a thousand branches, but they will all bear a golden and generous fruitage. It is the loftiest impulse to inquire willing te re ceive contemptuous of pretty curiositity, but passionate for glorious knowledge. Speech without it is but babble. Rhetoric more noisy but less useful than the tinman's trade. When the love of truth fires up the passions, put its lightning in the brain, then men may know that a prophet is among them. This is the sprint; of all heroism, and clothes the martyr that kill martvr with a flame that outshines the flame s him.

Conger as members of Congress, is a national result, and one in which the entire Whig party North and South are interested. It is all lol.y and fatuity upon the part ot our opponents to attempt lo stigmatize either of these gentlemen as sectional men, or in favor of disorganization these nre not such ; but are purely national, sound and patriotic in their views. In every issue which can arrive, in which the vitality or safety of the Union can by possibility be involved, these two men will be found faithful and true, and not less to be relied upon than many of those of our oppo nents, whose bo ists have been more loud, and whose cries for the Union's safety have been more urgent ane vociferous than have theirs. Detroit Adv. Occupation fou Childrkn. The habits of children prove that occupation is a matter of necesssity with most ot them. I hey love to be busy even about nothing, still more to be usefully employed. With some children it i3 a strongly developed physical necessity, and.if not turned lo good account, will be productive of positive evil; thus verifying the old adage, that "Idleness is tho mother of mischief." Children should be encouraged; or, if indo lently disinclined to do it, should be disciplined in to performing for themselves every little of fice relative to the toilet, which they are ca pable af performing. They should also keep their own clothes and other possessions in neat order, and fetch for themselves whatever they want; in short tlu-y should learn to be as in dependent of the services of others as possible, tilting the alike to make a good use of pros perity and to meet with fortitude anv reverse of fortune that may befall them. We know of no rank, however exalted, in which such a system would not prove beneficial. Blue Laws of Virginia. Virginia is famous for many things, but in nothinir more than her laws, if the following be a specimen, A Washington carrespon dent of the Columbus Standard, deserves cre dit for bringingitto the light of day, while he copies from "Hemmings Statute at large." Me prefaces it thus: At a Grand Assembly held at James' Gittie in the year 1601, were passed many acts 'to the glorie of Almighty God, and the publique good of this his majeslie's colonic of Virginia,' among which is: act. y. Women causing scandulovs suits, to be ducked. WiiEiiEAS, Oftentimes many babbling wo men often slander and scandalize their neigh bors, for which their poor husbands nre often brouoht into chargeable and vexation suits and cost in great damages: lie it therefore enacted by the authority aforesaid, 1 hat in actions, of slander occassion cd by the wife, as aforesaid, after judgement passed for the damages, the woman shall be punished by ducking; and if the slander be so enormous as to be ndjudged at a greater dam age than five hundred pounds oftobacco, then the woman to suffer a ducking for each five hundred pounds oftobacco so adjudged against her husband, if he refuse to pay the tobacco. Census of Nkw Ohleans By returns al ready made, it is estimated that the popula tion of New Orleans will amount lo 145,000 In 1840 it was 102,193. It is mentioned as a remaikahle fact, that nearly or quite the whole of this increase occurs in the Second Municipality, which by the census of 1840, contained only about zl.COO, and will,, by the present census, have about 62,000 thus near ly trebling is number of inhabitants in ten years. 1 here has been a proportionate in crease in the adjoining city of Lafayette. Tlie Gambler's Wife. Night after night tho poor wife sits alone, waiiini; the rtturn of her truant husband. Each knock at the door each jar or jingle of the bell alarms her, until she becomes nerv ous from solitude and watchfulness. The chirping of the cricket on the hearth, or the moaning of the wind through the casement, serve only to make night hideous. The mid night bell tolls, and still he comes not. The hour of two strikes sometimes it is three in the morning ere his step is heard; and then he enters, pale, hagard, tormented with pas sion and despair, wild with disappointment, without a kind word, a soft look, or an en dearing caress for her whose love be should prize above all earthly jewels. For every pang thus wantonly infloted on a tender wife and mother, a whole life of penance can scarce ly atone. THE FREEMAN: FREMONT, OHIO. J. S. FOIKE, Editor. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1850. I)eatb of Hon. A. E. Wood. It is our painful duty to announce to the readers of the Freeman, the death of Hon. A. E. Wood. He died on Tuesday last, the 19th inst., at Fort Wayne, la., of eryrasipelns, where he h i I g me to place his daughter in the femmale seminary, in that town. Mr. Wood, himself elected (o Ell the vacan cy occasioned by the death of Hon. Rodol phus Dickinson, in this Congressional district, has thus passed away, with his term of office yet unexpired, which will have to be filled by a new election. Appologies of an editor for the unin teresting appearance of his paper, is general ly cold comfort for his readers; we shall make none for the lack of attention paid the Freeman this week. Tbc Great Holiday Pictorial. Brother Jonathan for the Christmas Holi days, and New Years, 1851, has been sent to us by Wilson & Co., the New York publishers. It would be almost impossible to overate the splendid collection of engravings which ap pear in this magnificent sheet The fine large spirited picture of "the Country Girl in New York," is a masterpiece of American fine arts; and either that or the group of spirited por traits at President Taplor's Death bed, is alone worth double the cost of the whole paper. Another gem is the "Dream of Love and Pleasure," a large picture occupying the first page. We have not room to enumerate a lithe of tho beautiful engravings and popular reading which go to make up this stupendous sheet. Of one thing we are certain. It is by far the best and handsomest pictorial paper ever issued in America or anywhere else. The price is 12 cents per copy, or ten for one dollar. TIio Western liitcrary Magazine, and Journal of Education, Science, Arts and Morals," is the title of a new monthly publU cation; published by George Brewster, Col umbus, Ohio, at one dollar per year.

IN conformity with an ancient Christian custom of the people of the States composing this Union, and in conformity with the obliga tions Inch all people nre under to the Great Ruler of the Universe for the daily blessings they are receiving at His hands, the General Assembly of the State of Ohio did, at its last session, rasolve That the Governor be re quested to issue within the year his proclama tion recommending to the people of the State the observance of a day of thanksgiving and prayer to Almighty God for His'blessings to us as a people. Now, therefore I, Seabury Ford, Govern or of the State of Ohio, in compliance with and in obedience to recognized duty, do ap point and set apart Thursday, the 28th day of November next, to be observed as a day of thanksgiving and prayer throughout the State. And I hereby recommend to all the people that, abstaining from all secular employments, they repair to their usual places of worships and feeling their entire dependence upon that God to whom belongeth "the earth and the fulness Ihereofj" they render to him thanks and praise for peace in our borders, for gener al health for abundant harvests, for the spread of knowledge and for all his temporal bless ings; but especially for the Christian religion, and the inestimable blessing flowing to us from the prevalence of the piineiples of the "Jiverlasling Cjospel," and that relying in faith upon the promises ot that liospel, they earn estly supplicate a perpetual continuance of these blessings to all the people of this State and this nation.

The telegraph gives the official majorities, as follows: Governor Hunt, Whig, 24'! Lieut. Gov. Church, Loco, 6,400 Canal Commissioner Mathers, Loco, 278 l'he rest of the Loco State ticket elected. The Whigs have both branches of the Leg islature, by forty majority of Congressmen. Indiana Constitution. The Constitutional Convention has agreed upon the following language, in regard to the taking of private property for public uses: "No man's particular services shall be de manded without just compensation. No man's property shall be taken by law without just compensation ; nor except in case of the otate, without such compensation jirst assess ed and tendered to the owner.' How to treat Lard. The frying of lard is an important branch of economy, requiring a little care and some direct information. Wa ter, be it remembered, should never be made use of in this process, as it cooks the fat and makes it liable to become speedily rancid. Put a lump of fat into a pot, and then sland it alone side of the fire ; gathering around it a few embers: let a little of the fat fry out af ter which put the fat over the fire ; with such precaution there is no danger of the lard's scorching, and no need of water, but the lard when it is cold will be found quite firm and solid ; which will not be the case if water is made use of in frying out Locofoco Policy, As it is now evident that there will be de ficiency in the revenues of the country, it be comes us to inquire what means jhe Locofoco Congress will take to meet this deficiency, and keep the machinery of government in motion. The answer to this is already furnished in the November of the Democratic Review, in the following laconic style: "The principles of political economy nre now well settled, and they show that direct taxes upon accumulated property, are those only which should be levied in a free country." There it is,flatfooted. There is on mistaking the meaning of that. So prepare for the tax gatherer, and you farmers. Your property cannot be concealed, and you will have to foot the bill. At present, you buy few dutiable goods, and feel not the weight of tho General Government. That is now borne by the cap italist, whose wives and daughters buy their thousands yearly of revenue-paying goods. But under the proposed system, their money will be impalpable to taxation, and their share of the government expenses will be borne by those whose misfortune it will be to hold pro perty that cannot be concealed by fraud nnd false representations. There is a good time coming, if we ever live to see it. The Whig Party and the Union. We regard the Whig party ns the real Uni on party. The Whi g of the South have al ways been on the side of the Union, wherev er it has been assailed. They are at this mo ment fighting the disunionists in Georgia nnd elsewhere. The whig party is the conserva tive party, and to preserve the integrity of the Union, is the highest, as it is the holiest con servatism. The whig party has ever been op posed to the extension of our boundary limits, from which extension has arisen much of this excitement about slavery. The hig party is for River and Harbor improvements, nnd for encouraging and protecting the labor of this country, and giving it employment nnd adequate reward. Every man, therefore, who is for union, and makes that question para mount to all others, should at once array him self on the side of the Great conservative Whig party, Boston Atlas. Fire in the Penitentiary. A fire broke out this forenoon in a dry house attached to the west or rather north end of the west work-shop building. No great dam age was done as the firemen were early on the ground. It would-ba just as well it strikes us, if the dry house hereafter was detached from the other buildings, or placed outside of the walls. We learn since writing the above, that Mr. Pinney's loss in articles in the building will amount to from one to two thousand dollars. No loss to the State. Statesman. From Smxta Fe and the Salt Lake, mails have reached Independence, Missouri. An occasional skirmish, between the troops and the maurading Indians, took place in Santa Fe. The Indians on the plains were friendly. Ev ery thing was very high. From an Apache prisoner it was learned that Flourny's party, were murdered by the Indians. He stated that the party fought desperately, killing a great many Indihns; and, when overpowered, they broke their guns and pistols over the wagon-wheels, and poured their powder in the sand, rather than let them fall into the hands of the Indians. The emigrants and traders were getting along well. o The Philadelphia Bulletin, in an article en titled, "The True View of Womanhood," thus discourses : "Thre is no inferiority, as a whole in either's sax. Each differs from its opposite, man from woman, as woman from man : but in this very difference consists, when they are in marriage the harmony of existence. As the deep bass of the one joined to the birdlike treble of the other, constitutes the highest kind of music, so man and woman, by sweet est concert move on in a heavenly harmony, when both arc true to themselves and the real duties of life." India War in Arkansas. The Choctaw Intelligencer says war has broken out be tween the Tonkeway and Wichetaws. The Tonkeways are cannibals and have roasted and eaten one of their antagonists. A battle occured on the 29th Semptember on or near a small streem called Rush Creek, on the road from Washita to Fort Arbuckle. A Caddo Chief, states that the Wichetaws had killed a Tonkeway Indian, which was the occassion of the light. I he lonkeways lost hve men beside their wounded. That militia officers are not the proudest men in the word, we have always believed and the following anecdote goes far to prove, that humanity is occasionally imitated as well in in its perceptive sense: "Cuff!" said one of these dignitaries to a negro at his side as he prepared to swallow his fifth invoice of "hard-ware." "Cuff you're an honest fellow, and I like to compliment a man what s lived an honest hfe.if he is black you shall take a glass of something to drink with me you shall, eh?" "Well, capting," he replied wiping his lips with the nether end of his shining coat-sleeves. "I'so bery dry, so wont be be ugly about it Sum niggers is too proud to drink wid a mur lishy ossfur. But I think when a murlishy ossfur is sober he's j is us good as a nigger spechuly if de nigger's dry.' A copper mine has recently been discover ed in the county of Carroll, in Virginia, of a very rich quality. The examination as far as they have been made, indicate an inexhausti ble supply of ore. A gentleman, speaking yesterday of a cer tain morose attrabilous character, not overbur dened with wealth, remarked that what he lacked in ready money, he possessed in acri money. Happiness results from the occupation of time usefully or agreeably, When persons are actively engaged in their several callings and professions, lime is usefully employed, conducing to respectability, honor or profit never failing sources of self-satisfaction. They who have no regular business or profession, resort to the expedient of beguiling their hours by some pursuit or amusement that shall sup ply the place of business. Their endeavors is io fill up time agreeably. Thus the country gentleman devotes himself to the sports of the field, making dogs and horses his principle oc cupation, while the town man of fortune fills up his evening hours in frequenting theatres, card parties, rouls and masquerades.
