Why don't the girls propose; O say?
I wish they would begin! .

And sent them n.ati;' a rose

Catacombs of Palmkiio. From a letter in
tho Nalionnl IiiU'iligenfSer, we extract the fol
lowing graphic desct iplioh of a portion of these
catacombs: -
The young-, the gay; the beautiful, were all
bere, laid lowly in the relentless embrace of
death, decked out in sikeri dresses; lace, and
jewelry, as in mockery of the past. Each
corpse had its sad history. 1 saw a young
br'de who was stricken down in a few brief
months after her marriage. She was dressed
in her bridal costume: the bonnet and veil
still on, the white gloves drawn over her skel
eton finger; a few withered flowers laid upon
her breast, by the mourning one she had left
behind.- . Through the thin veil could be seen
a blanched, grinnining, bonny fiice sunken
sockets marked around with the dark lines of
decay, and Iter long hair was draw n in luxuri
ant masses over lief withered bosom.- Anoth
er held in her arms a skeleton babe. ' Some
were habited in walking dresses; others in all
the finery of ball room costume, with gay silk
slippers, silk stockings, and ' tawdry lace. It
was a ghastly sight to look tinder the bonnets
and gaze upon the sunken kfcby features deck
ed around with artificial flowers and trace in
those withered lineaments ho lingering line of
beauty, no flickering array of Hie mortal spirit
but a dieary history of mortal agony decay and
corruption. I et here the luisbahd comes to
hold communion with the beloved soul that
once dwelt in that corpse; to look upon those
blanched features, that were once animated
with life'and affection; to kiss the cold lip
and leel no returning warmm; yinu nere
too,-the fa'.her, brother, sister, and wife conies
lo g:ize upon the dead; and here the mother
comes to weep over the withered corpse ot
tile babe. Once a Year, as 1 learnt troth the
old monk, the relatives of the deceased come
to pray for the salvation of their souls, and
duck their bodies wish flowers.
- A loss with God. Alone with God, How
solemn, how sublime the idea 1 How tranquil
izingl how comforting I how fraught with im
pregnable security, with indefatigable strength
Vet how awful! "Jacob was afraid, and said,
how dreadful is this place!" And Peter was
bewildered aud awe struck, while he exclaim
ed, "It is good for us to be here!'!
Alone with God ! Such is the attitude of
the Christain in prayer. "Then when thou
hast shut thy door, pray." "There are," says
Stilling, "heart sorrows and plagues which the
Chiistain could not bear to tel! to bis most in
timate friends." lhereare tears wlncli we
dare not whisper into any mortal ear. There
are hopes and joys too vast and glorious to be
imparted. Hut lien the Christain has his face
in the bosom of his Father, he can bteathe forth
all for when words fail, he resorts to the lan
guage of sighs and groans for "He knoweth
our thoughts afar off' "He that searehest the
heart knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit.
He maketh intercession for the saints according
to the will of God. These are the the work
ings of the interceding Spirit in the heart. The
Infinite Spirit prompts, the Infinite can alone
understand themi Here there is no fear of
betrayal, of contempt, of lack of appreciation
and sympathy. For we converse with an infi
nite Spirit, whose name is Love, and who had
told us to "pour out our hearts before him."
Wonderous privilege ! Does then this low
ly, mortal, sinful, and suffering state admit of
such intercourse with God! Yes! "dur com
munion is with the Father." Thou mayest at
any moment, even at this, in the name of Jesus,
enter the palace of the Universal Majesty dnd
unquestioned by the brlgbl guard that sur
rounds him, penetrate to the recess of his glo
rious and awful abode, and stand in the very
presence of the "King, eternal, immortal, and
invisible," and then 'make thy requests known
unto God," sure, yes, absolutely sure of a
gracious hearing and ready nnswer. For he
hath said, 'Call Upon me and I will atlSwer
the.' 'Draw nigh to God and he will draw
nigh to thee."

Hisses. In Sydney Smith's "5ke.tc.hes of
Moral Philosophy," that somewhat celebrated
individual says: A hiss is either fonlisli; or
tremendous, or Sublime. The hissing of a
pancake is absurd, the Krst faint hiss that a
rises from the extremity of the pit, on the eve
ning of anew play, sinks the soul of the author
within him , and makes him curse himself
and his Thalia; the hissing of a cobra dicapello
it sublime it is the whisptr of death;
From the Ohio Stale Journal,
To the Honorable General Assembly
of the state of Obiot
GentlemeS I am about to address you
through the medium of the public press, be
cause I well know your multiplied culls pre
vent you from giving due heed to all re
quests that cumber your tables: and because
I am about to detail to you matters of truth
ful history, which are known only to myself
and to him who is omniscient and knoweth
all things; and yet, true as these things are,
respect for the feelings of the living, and for
the memory of the dead, prevents me from
subscribing my own name thereto. My heart
bleeds when I think how many thousands
and hundreds of thousands of similar cases
of accursed wrong, caused by and accursed
system of vending poison and death, lie bu
ried in the grave, or in hearts deeper than
the grave, and which will never be told till
that day when God shall judge both quick
and dead, and the secrets of all hearts shall
be k-evealed.
I am one of lhce whose names are already
upon your tables, petitioning for the passage
of law prohibiting the manufacture and sale
of intoxicating liquors as a beverage. I have
done more than this: I have laid aside, for a
time, n women's instinbtive dread Of encoun
tering the gase, the ridicule and the rebuffs
of those who appreciate not her motives, and
I have traversed Weary disltihceS, hh'd entered
dark abodes of sin, entreating for names to j
that humble petition which prays for your
aid in accomplishing a work which would
cause more joy on earth, and in Heaven also 1
than any Other even!, save one, that this gib-1
rioussun of ours ever shone upon. In these
walks, I have found the sick and destitute j
wives and widows of those who are daily Sink- j
ing, or have iieiidy sunk into the drunkard's
grave; I have seen the tear joy of leap from
haggard eyes because their owners had the
poor privilege of subscribing their names to
such a petition ; and I have departed; bearing
with me blessings of those ready lo perish;
and followed by the prayers of those who have
audience in Heaven, if not on earth.
Oh! could you. ye honorable legislators of
this gTeat and glorious State could you be
hold, with unbec!ouded vision, how many
from the hovels of misery ; how many from
the mansions of the rich ; how many from the
pallets of straw and coiiches of down are sen
ding lip petitions to Heaven's high throne,
for blessings upon your deliberations, and
invoking for you the guidance of infinite wis
dom; and could you know with what trem
bling anxiety these praying mothers, sisters,
and daughters watch your movements, and
wait with excited hopes the tidings of your
doings in this behalf, you would not you
could not turn an indifferent ear to our sup
plications. I know it is said by some that women have
no right to petition, or, at least, ought not to
be heard on so grave a question as Shis.
They Say that we are not fit lo judge of the
consequences and relative bearihgs of such
ix law : that we are Swayed by feeling and
sympathy, and hence that our views ashould
have little weighiin the decision of legisla
tors, when interests of such magnitude are
at stske. It may be so; but hear my tale and
judge if it be true.
In cany lite 1 married a man wno moved in
the first circles of no mean city. He was a
descendant of Puritan stock arid his venera
ble father's silvery locks yd command wide
respect amidst those who linger on Pilgri.n
ground. He was a worthy son of a worthy
sire a riian amongst men. In the commer.
cial world he stodd fair among the fairest
Abundance blessed our board. If we had
not wealth In hoarded profusion, we had
enough for all our wants and even the rich
might have envied us our hapiness. But
when. I dreamed of no danger, the' foe, with
serpentine disenabling. Wound his boils around
my loved and cherished one, and blighted my
every earthly hope. Oh, never! never
shall I forget the agony of that hour, when
fiirst the full conviction flashed upon my mind
that the father of my children my own lov
ed and cherished husband was a drunkard
Oh, ve who revel in the wealth wrung from
widows' tears, and hoard up gold coined from
orphans' groans, were I a demon damned, and
wished to heap upon your devoted heads the
coals of unquenchable fire, I could not wish
you worse than you might drink of that bit
ter cup, which llien vou forced to my unwill
ing lips, and compelled me to drink, even to
the deepmost dregs.
But even then 1 knew not the power of my
deadly foe. Hope, that angel of mercy,
sprung up from the depths of despair, and
with the frantic energy of the fire-surrounded
victim of the prairie flames,! strove to release
him from the grasp of the fell cestroyer. I
strove ! oh God, thou knowest how hard I
Strove, to conceul from myself and others the
truth. With my husband the struggle was
equally severe( if not as ardent. He saw riot
at first his danger' but for my sake and his
children's sake, he resolved that he would
be free Like Sampson he rose in all the
concious strength of manhood's prime ; but
likfe him; who dallied with tin enemy, ha too.
soon found out he was shorn of his strength,
and yielded in aject submission tb his deadli
est foe. He was in the anaconda's folds,
arid as well might he escape from the paw of
the lion; aS he from his eternal tormentor.
Thrice, before God and man, he took . the
Solemn pledge that he would no more yield to
the tempter, and thrice he fell but to taste in
all its i-enewed horrors, a drunkard's hell.
Oh yes, many, many times, when no eye but
God's and my own witnessed his struggle,
and when lie knew riot of iriy vigils.I have
seeti him prostra'te and weeping as though
his once manly heart would break, as he re
viewed the past, and looked forward to the
future. "Twas then he realized his helpless,
irretrievable bondage! And he Was not a
gutter drunkard, lie seldo.'n reeled in the
street; h was never a public, degraded sot.
Hut he was in a Demon's power, and demon
like, he would in the ten thousand ways which
shall forever remain nameless, harrow ifp rry
very soul, and render life a burden. Prop
erly vanished ; friends grew cold; the proud
despised it's, and tongues of malice were dip
ped in gail. All this he saw- with blurred
vision, and sometimes keenly felt that he had
brought, it all upon those whom he loved
dearer than life. Dav and night I toiled ;
night, rind day I watched and prayed; yea
weeks and months and years I struggled, and
by the free uW of hands not ashamed to work,
but heretofore all unused to toil, I, unaided
by mortal arm, fed, clothed, and sheltered

gave up to sacred duty my choicest years of;

Ciscisnati, February 2lih,V
Eighteen hundred and fifty-two:
To my honored Uncle, Major Jack Down
ing, of Douninfsiiile, away down .East iti
the State of Maine. -.'., .' . r ;.XJ
Dear Usclb Jack- : When I writ my last
letter I wasgointo rite another straight off,
but every body's bin in sich n ttirmilo about
the Great Maggar; t ain't had iio time. -AHk
Judy and Uncle Zeke Have been a run-
riin hither and yoni ftlst tti the, Hurigdriilh .eo-
sation, then tu see the great Hungarian him
self; till eenamost thought the town waS p'tir-
ty nigh sot oh end; and this ' babies eetinjia
starved out, the way the mothers run bout
spinnin street yam; and gittin subscriptions
and selin tickets tu git "Material Aid - tu
fight the Austrains. . ..i
You'd thought he was President of the U.
States, instead of the exile Governor of Hon
garv, if you'd a seen the stir the people were
in. Some of the old folks said "there warn't
so rriuch htibub when Lafayette cuni years
ago; folks in them nays vn so clean taken
up with every new idee that cum "along, as
they are now-a-days.
Ant Judy, Cuzzin Faith arid trie, went tu
the nieetin of the Ladies' Hungarian Aid
Sosation. The meetin was held in the Bur
net House tavern. I've heered tell about
the Aster house tavern in York, biit this
beats it all tu smash, its eenamost big enuf
te hold all the folks in Downingsville. - Wi
went into a great big room, with the floor all
kivered over with carpet that looked jist like
velvet.and tu soil tew tread on. jt was
crowded chuck full of Wimin, jammed in as
tight as the sheep in Square White's pen.
. 1'urty soon Kossuth cum In with a nice
clever locking man, who introduced- him tu
the company : as soon ns lie sed hit name, the
wimin stompt and clapped tneir uands, some
on em sqiieaked but the couldn't see him so
they brought a table in, and they asked him
to git on it, which made him look a good deal
flusterfied; but bme-by he sed " lis d better
be on it than under it," so he stepped up:
and they were all so tickled they streamed
right out . ' . .
Then they called for Mrs. Kossuth, and
when she cum he helped her up on. tu the
table; she looked very good natured and smil
ed, and then sot down agin.
After a while they got still, and then he
thanked em for the money the'd gin him, he
hoped theyd gin him sum more, talked about
intervention and, sofl-soddered em about wim
min's inlluenee, he sed "Congress would in
terfere if the Ladies wou'il only say So,"
just as if the toimiii were lords of creation, .
When we got home Unkle Zeke was tvaitin
for his dinner, while wo were eating he asked
Ant Jddy "how she lilted Kossuth." she sed,
"she didn't think the show was worth the
dollar.
Unkle Zeke fired up and sed. "it wasn't n
show. Kossuth was a hero ami onlv wanted
money, and Congress tn giv him half a chance
and he'd he President
heM a great deal rather
of Hungary, which
he'd be ih in Presi
dent of the United States n ynu talked about
in your letter, jist as if. wo hadn't native born
Yankees enough for President, without bring
ing wu'n over from the old kedr.try."
Yes, sea cuzzin Zeph, "if Congress would
only tell Ituehia she shouldn't interfere, nnd
we'd only giv him plenty- of money, and go
fight for him, and make him President of Hun
gary artefevery'lhin' was air fixed rip nice
it would be jist (he thing. "' ' ' " V"' ' '' ";
'" This made Unkle Zeke Bwful rile'd, sVzlie5,
if that's all ybu bin tu College ' for afl ' winter,
you'd a heep-sight better staid to ' htirt he
don't want money, heohlyaskB for "Material
Aid; guess when 'we fought the revolution
Franklin went to Europe beggih Tor'Vi's, and
Lafayette cum oyer tu help us, and didn't we
light but; pwn battled arter all;"'
But sez cuzzin Zeph;-wRen Franklin went
tu Europe he ' hnd 4 bis-credentials from the
Continental Congress, and he didn't take
more than firesecrelnrie,-nd -a doctor for
fear he should din, and twenty more people
to wail on him and drink wine, and smoke
segars enuf tu keep a regiment of soldiers in
rations, He only asks them, tti acknowledge
our independence and let us alone tu du the
fightin. Now if Kossuth only hnd his creden
tials from the Congress of. Hungary, twould
be something like folks." " "' '"' " ' " I "''
Sez Unkle Zefce, "you college boys Ihint
you know a sight, but aint'seen so much of
the world as 1 have, if you can't? learn better
manners than to cflntradict your dad, youd
better stay tu hum till you can learn sum." "'
Well sez Zeph, "whats he going to do whh
the money when he gits it? suppose the gov
ernment shouldn't acknowledge his- bonds
how will he git out of ' that scrape? And
hows "he goin tu git back' tu Hungar wht'H
hes an exiie ? Cordiri to my notion he'd bet
ter not live quite so high, cause' if he " wants
the rhoriey so bad he'd a know he'd git more
in his pocket, if it d!do:t oost SofflUch tu keep
him.". , ,-: r'i i - - ' . -
Unkle Zeke'' looked' ' allfired wrathy ' arid
jumped up f.-bnri the table sayin' Kossuth
might as "well nave the money as Barnum,
he didn't see any difference, always aometbin
a goin on that took morieyH " . '
Cuzzin Faith sed she visht7,eph-could cum
hum without quarreliri ' with ' par sAnt Judy
sed we migh t all go tu the depot lu. hear :Kos-
SuthS windin up Speech;' but she " wasn't a
goin shed had enuf of the show. "- "-.'
So day aforfc yesterday Unkle' Zeke took
us in ' the, boruSli.?' While e were"goin,
Unkle Zeke sed theae'd be the ''biggist erdwd
we ever' seed; but he -was' awfully disappoin
ted, for itwasn't half full.
1 Kossuth looked triad tu think there f irarnt
no more cum; but it warn't no rise to g-t mad
folks will dit as they're amind to, anyhow.
He talked likehei'd put all the Speeches he
ever made and worked it'all over, jist " like
grandfather Joshua's blue coat with shiny but
tons, that grandmarm turned, and dyed, rind
made up on the, right side .agairi. ' r ": -
He explained Qineral Washington's policy.
jist as if we didn't know ' what that was.-"
GueSs we was brought tip under it." - He asi-
-ed the folks tu git up a petition " tti ' Congress
til interfere. . Bine by he finished preachtn,
and yesterday he started off on the steamboat
for Ingtana." .V"'" ';---ita:
' Whert we "got " hum -'Ant" Judy ' sed she
hoped there be parties. " entif bine ' by for
everybody tb be suited; she thought the
wimin's rights convention the last thing, bnt
the Ladies Hungarian Sosations went a head
of it. ' She guessed the wimin might as well
wear the trowserS aS any way. . - '
Tween you and me, Unkle Jack, it -don't
look over and above 'right for-a poor1 exile tu
be goin about from Dan' to "Besheba ' livin ori
the public," and beggin, tew without even io
much as pologizin for the trouble he s ma kin.
I don't see how Unkle Zeke can favor him
when he's a Whig and Kossuth Belong tu
the Democrats.; But t gtiess; arter all, Unkle
Zeke has a kinder hanltarin at Old Hicory's
policy, though he don I liae to own if. - -
'I'd like tu write1 sum more, but I'm tired
and I'll have to stop and rest I ain't a goin tu
read this tti cuzzin Faith, cause she mad fun
of the last, and I guess the Yankees know as
much as the folks out West; case if th y hadn't
bin any lankees there - wotudn t a bin any

ft Ant Judy arid the rest on erri are - al! well.

Old Fogies and lofing America. .-
At the conclusion of Gov. jorie's spescti on
intervention, iast week, in the U. S. Senate,
Mr. Cass made a few sharp remarks and took
occasioh to' allude to .'Turing America' and
'old fogyism.' The' General has evidently
been hit,-and feels" it hTs duty to exhibit hi
power of squirrhing. " ' Near him sat Judge
Douglass and Mr. Marshall of California, the
former being Young America incarnate. , "J.
S. P.,". of the New York .Tribune,' thus writes
of the matter, in particular and in General:
He (Mr. Cass) acknowledged himself to be
an old fogie, just such an one as was Wash
ington and Jefferson. The rest of his observa
tions which were quite telling, amounted to
about this, thatyoung' folks think old ones fools
but old folks know young ones to be so. The
The internecine strife between the old fogies
and llie Young America of LocofocoTsm is
thus glowing interesting." It is already a pret
ty quarrel as it stands. ' Gen. Cas? says; in
private, that he presumes 'Young America is
to be the peculiar' sadhrique't of gentlemen
who wear long hair all over their faces' ila
Marshall.) The General is nettled; Mr. Bti.ch-.
anan is nettled, all the old fogies Bro nettled,
at, ihe t-ecent impertinent demonstrations of
'Young America. Bu assured the Old Guard
will not be shot down without pouring back a
deadly fire. The fate of both wings of the
farly is thus in imminent peril. The spectac
e Is tod painfilt trf be contemplated with com
posure, but we hope to' meet the final denoue
ment with' resignation."
Catching a Tartar. Thc origin of the ex
pression, "I've cavtght si Tartar," rts' nearly m
we can remember, is somewhat as follows: -
In (he days when the soldiers of chriseni
dom were doing battle against the 'Tartar
hords, who were enlisted on the side of the
Turks, ri Dutchman, fighting ralicntly on the
on the side (if the Crass against the Cresent'i
and more ditmguihed for honesty than cun
ning, espied a Tartar mounted oil n horse,
whom he thought it would Ve a valuable tropin-
to capture and bring into camp. To this
end the Dutchman, seizing a favorable oppor
tunity sprang upon the horse behind thd Tar
tar, and clasped him tightly around the waist.
The latter, as may be supposed, clapped spurs
to his horse, and made off to jiin his tro ips;
nnd the last that was known of the unfortunate
Dutchman by his comrades, he was going at a
furious pnee towards the Turkish army behind
his intended captive, and singing out nt the
top of his voice," "Pee cavg'it a Tartar"
