ID" Our readers will recollect that we published, sometime ago, a piece of poetry, commencing: Don't you Remember Sweet Alice, Ben Bolt." Well, here is Ben Bolt's reply, and all will agree with us, thnt the lines are very pretty. . We find them in the Louisville Journal: Alt! Yes, I Remember. Ah: yea, I remember that name with delight, Sweet Alice, ao cherished aud dear; I seek her loue grave in the pale hour of night. And moisten the turf with a tear; And there, when the heart is o'er burdennd with ' woce, 1 wander and muse all alone. And long for the time when my heart thall repose, Where "sweet Alice lies under the atone." I roam through the woods where so joyeus we strayed. And recline on the green sunny hill: All things are as bright in that beautiful glade, . But my heart ia alt lonely end chill. The hand that ao fondly 1 pressed then in mine, And the lips that were meeting wilh love . Are cold in the grave, and I'm left to repine, - 'Till 1 meet with sweet Alice above. Ah! well i remember the school-honae and brook, "And Ihe master so kind and so true," The witd-blnoming Rowers in the cool shady nook. So fragrant with incenae and dew. But 1 weep not for these, tho' so dear to my heart. Nor the friends that have left us alone The bosom will heave, and the tear-drop willsiart, For "sweet Alice lies under the stone.

Twenty miles West of Indcpendance, ) April 29th, 1852. J Dkar Parents: After a long and tiresome delay, in yoking unruly oxen, and saddling vicious mules, we bade farewell to Mr. Wil son's family, quite proud of our respectable train, consisting of 14 wagons, CO men, 50 head of loose cattle, and as many horses and mules. To-night we are encamped about 12 miles from our starting place, all in good spir its. I retired to rest wilh a violent headache, not however without helping to prepare a sup per of biscuit, coffee, and fried bacon for our mess, consisting of five, including my husbrnd and myself. ' April 30th. Arose this morning after en joying a night of quiet sleep in our wagon our first camping out The day has been cold and windy, blowing clouds of dust :n our eyes. Charles rode Mr. Park's horse, while he rode itt oar wagon a good part of the after noon. Traveled 15 miles to-day, and camped near the Zone Elm; after camping to-night, baked two nice loaves of gingerbread.and some biscuit, for to-morrow's dinner. Crossed the big Blue river this afternoon, and overtook two trains, which we passed. May 1st. Crossed the line this morning, at which place there is a store and grocery. Travelled 16 miles to-day, and really enjoyed it, as the wind blew just enough not to raise the dust. Received a call from Frank Parks this afternoon, while Charles rode his pony. Passed a train of 10 wagons bound for -Oregon. Found a spring of excellent water this afternoon, near . an Indian cabin, of which both men and , women drank freely. Camped about three o'clock, P. M., on the vast prairie, where three rattle-snakes were killed soon after the tents were set Partook of an excellent supper of coffee, bacon, pan cakes, and mnple molasses. Every thing very plesant, except cooking in the wind. May 2d. Crossed the Sweet Water (Hon ey-creek) this morning, and the Walkerousha this afternoon ; the latter, the prettiest stream I ever saw, near which we encamped about 3 o'clock, P. M. To-night I baked biscuit, gin gerbread, and stewed apples, while Mr. Lilsby browned some coffee. May 3d. Arose early this morning, and started about 8 o'clock, all well, except Mr. Barlow, who is quite sick with the measles. Rode on horse back to-day, a distance of 15 miles, over some of the most lovely country in the world ; found a running stream six miles after starting. Ascended a very high emi nence about 10 A. M where we had a de lightful view of the country; also of the two rivers above mentioned. Charles, Mr. Parks and myself, have come on in advance of the company, to find a good camping ground, which we have succeeded in doing, w there is abundance of water and plenty of grass. Our horses are feeding near by, and we are seated on the ground, in the tun, but with a good breeze it is quite comfortable. Travelled 20 miles to-day, and camped 5 miles from Kansas, or Can river, near a good stream of water. Rode Wm. D. Hay's mule to-day, which is as pretty a riding animal as I ever was on and inch ears! Found a nest of 15 prairie hen's eggs. The wind has blown the dust in our faces terribly to-day, but after washing in a cool stream of water, feel very well except my eyes. The wagons are just coming in and forming tt'Coral' in this way. The wagons are all driven round, forming a half circle, with the tongue of each wagon placed on the hub of the hind wheel, of the one in advance of it; here they drive in the oxen every morning to yoke them. To-night I hae cooked some beans, and with so many to help me, there does not seem to be much to do, but still it is quite tiresome, as it is all done on the ground. And yet I never enjoy ed any thing in my life, so much as the jour ney thus far. It is now raining very hard, about 9 o'clock in the evening. Our wagon does not leak at all, neither do the tents, 'though it bas rained bard for three nights past Do not be the least uneasy about us, for we are getting along finely, and I cannot tell you how glad I would have been, to have had Father with us, for 100 miles since we started. I know he would have been in rap tures half of the time at least Charles is get ting quite fleshy, and laughs all the time! We have a little iron lamp hanging up in our tent, which makes it look quite cheerful. They are playing the violin in the adjoining tent May 5th. Traveled 18 miles to-day, over the worst of roads, the first we have seen, and camped in the rain ; took supper in my room, consisti ng of crackers and milk. . 6th. -- Rained hard all night, and it is very muddy They are now yoking the cattle, and have quite a time, while I am writing in the wagon. It has cleared off quite pleasant, and we have to ferry across a river this morning. We have plenty of milk. Charles bought a cow yesterday of some Indians for $16, which will be worth $150 if we get her through. Our cooking utensils are sheet iron and tin of which we have quite an assortment I wish I had brought gome yeast cakes, to make a change in our bread. Affectionately, LUCIA. An Irishman's Ticws. At nn immense meeting, held in Cincinnati on Tuesday evening, a young Irishman by the name of Gibbons, was called out The Times of that city gives the following synopsis of his speech l , . "He said it was unnecessary for him to ask who is Gen. Scott ? His countrvmeu knew him, France knew him, the world knew him. But not so with Pierce, taken as he was from obscurity ; people are expected to vote for him, without knowing whether he is qualified or not. As A.nerican Republicans, the people of this land are vested with the greatest of all blessings self rrovernment; and can they abuse tnatsa cred right by voting for a man for the high est office in the gift ot the people wno is un known even to his countrymen a man un tried in the cabinet or on the field? And elect him. too. in Dreferanee to the nation's oride?" ' ' "He knew that the Locofocos, from Maine to Georuia, had issued forth vile abuse upon . - . r. . r- f 1 . r, . the head ot tne urent Letenuer ot ms country. Thev had stated that he was a native Ameri can, and an enemy to the speaker and his race. As an Irishman, he hurled back the vile slan der into their teeth. (Cheer.) He reminded his countrymen, of the Queenstown affair, and asked them if they would not support the man who had always supported their countrymen. (Cries of 'yes, yes.') His father had fought on der Scott and he intended to fight for liira. rC'heers.1 He never could forget the magnani mous actions of the conqueror of Mexico, who secured to a vanquished people all the rights and privileges of free andunrestricled worship? Cheers. One word about Pierce, his experi ence in America had convinced him that the Locofocos thought they could nominate whom they pleased, and the people would vote for them. If they would nominate Bnrt McKay of Cincinnati, for President they would expect the people to be dupes, and asses enough to support him. He asked if the declaration of Independence the Constitution of the United States did not declare him to be a man, and does not the Con stitution of New Hampshire declare him, and all his religious faith, to be no more than brutes or serfs? (Cries of Yes.) He asked if Irishmen who had left their homes, and the graves of their fathers, to escape oppression and tyrannr would be found sustaining that same system of oppression in this land of liberty. If they cast their votes for Pierce they certainly would be dome it and if he was successful they would soon witness the same scenes of oppression, cruelty and distress here, which drove them from their lonely Erin. (Heven save the Re public.) Would they vote for Lord Lynhurst cries of no,' or Lord Clarendon, cries of no or Lord Stanley, (cries of no.) or Uen. fierce, the type of Lord Stanley! (Loud cries of "no." All knew Scott and supported him because be supported his country his country his name, his high qualifications induced his nomina tion." in "Astonished Man." Gen. Pierce has been an "astonished man' once in his life, before hearing of his nomina tion for the Presidency. The occasion of his astonishment is related somewhat in this way. It was while John Atwood was on the anxious seat, Gen. Pierce used to labor with him night and day to convince him that he wns a fool to quit the Democracy and join the Abolitionists. He laid him over the hot coals, turned him over, basted him but all to no purpose. While the revernad gentleman was undergo- ing one of these skinning alive processes, he begged for mercy, meekly declaring in n whi ning tone, don't hurt me "Gin'ral, I have been a cunseientious Democrat for 20 years past" Ihis was too much. . The general could not stand it He was an astonished man. Eyeing his victim with a smile of con tempt, and shaking his dexter at him, he ex claimed "Why, you d- old fool you, you been a Democrat twenty years, and now talk about conscience" The way It Works. While our opponents are busy in gathering and parading in their columns the names of a few gentlemen in the commercial cities who were desirous of the nomination of a different Presidential candidate, and who have been foolish enough to evince their dissatisfaction through the newspapers, facts like the follow ing may not be unworthy of attention. A friend of ours, and a glorious Whig and Scott man, who employs some hundred hands about his mills in Saginaw County being on a visit there at the time of the reception of the nom ination, took the sense of the meeting at his saw mill, and out of 80 men present, three fourths of whom were Democrats, 65 freelv and openly declared their determination to vote for Winfield Scott. I Detroit Ad Gen. Scott's Letter of Acceptance. ' : Washington, June 34, 1852. Sir: I have had the honor to receive from your hands the official notice of my unanimous nomination as the Whig candidate for the of fice of President of the United States, togeth er with a copy of the resolutions passed by the convention, expressing their opinions up on some of the most prominent questions of ot iNaliona. policy. ". lbe great distinction conferred by a nu merous, intelligent and patriotic body, repre senting millions of my countrymen sinks Jeep into my heart; and remembering the very eminent names which were before the' Convention in amicable competition with my own.I am made to feel oppressively the weight of responsibility belonging to my new position. JXot having written a word to procure this distinction, I lost not a moment after it had been conferred in addressing a letter to one of your members, to signify what would be, at the proper time, the substance of my reply Io the Convention ; and I now have the honor to repeat in a more formal manner, as the oc casion justly demands, that I accept.the nom ination with the resolutions annexed. The political principles and measures laid down in the resolutions are so broad, that there is little left for roe to add. I therefore barely suggest in this place, that should I, by the partiality of my countrymen, be elevated to the Chief Magistracy of the Union, I shall be ready, in ennnection with Congress, to rec ommend or approve of measures in regard to management of the public domain, so as to secure an early settlement or the same, favor ably to actual settlers, but consistent, never theless, with due regard to the equal rights ot the whole American people in that vast na tional inberitence; and also to recommend or approve of a single alteration in our Naturaliza tion !aws,suggested by my military experience. viz: giving all foreigners the right of citizenship wno shall faithfully serve, in time of war, one year on board of our public .ships or in our land forces regular or volunteer on their receiving an honorable discharge from the service. In regard to the general policy of the ad ministration, ii elected, 1 should, of course, look among those who may approve that pol icy for the agents to carry it into execution ; and I should seek to cultivate harmony and fraternal sentiments throughout the whole Whig party, without atttempting to reduce its members by proscription, to exact uniformity to my views. iSut 1 should at the same time be rigorous in regard to qualifications for of fice, retaining and appointing no one either de ficient in capacity or integrity, or in devotion kj .Liioerty. tothe Constitution and the Union. Convinced that harmony or good will between the different quarters of . our broad country is essential to the present and future interests of the Republic, and with a devotion that can know no South and no Xorth, I should nei ther countenance nor tolerate any sedition, disorder, faction or resistance to the law of the Union, on any pretext in any part of the land, and I should carry into the civil admin istration this one principle of military conduct obedience to the legislative ana judicial de partments of Government, each in its condi tional sphere, saving only in respect to the Legislature, the possible resort to the veto power, always to be most cautiously exercis ed, and under the strictest restraints and ne cessities. Finally, for my strict adherence to the prin ciplcs of the Whig party, as expressed in the resolutions of the Convention, and herein sug gested, with a sincere and earnest pnrposn.to advance the greatness and happiness of the Republic, and thus to cherish and nrourage the cause of constitutional liberty throughout the world, avoiding every act and thought that might involve our country in an unjust and unnecessary war, or impair the fniih of treaties, and discountenancing ali political ag itation injurious to the interests of society, and dangerous to the Union, I can offer no other pledge or guaranty than the known incidents of a long public life, now undergoing the se verpst examination. Feeling mvself highly fortunate in ray asso ciate on the ticket and with lively sense of my obligation to the Convention, and to your personal courtesies, I have the honor to remain, sir, with great esteem, your obedient servant " WINFIELD S.COTT. To the Hon. J. G. Chapman, President of the Whig relational Convention. Mr. Graham's Lettor of Acceptance. Washington, June 24, 1852. Sir: I am gratified to acknowledge the receipt of the communication which you did me the honor to deliver in person on yester day, announcing my unanimous nomination as the Whig candidate for the office of the Vice President of the United btatf-s by the Julian tional Convention which recently assembled in Baltimore, accompanied by a copy of the res olutions of the Convention upon questions of national principle and policy. I cordially approve the declarations made by these resolutions. On matters of the most recent practical interest they do but portray the conduct of an administration of the Gnv ernmentof which for near two years I have been a member. On all others they but re iterate the doctrines and recommendations held by its chief magistrate in important pub lic communications. Should the people of the United States give their sanction to the nominations of your Convention, so far as I shall be invested with authority, a faithful adherence to these doc trines may be expected. I therefore accept the distinction so honor ably tendered, wilh a grateful heart, but with unaffected diffidence. It is a satisfaction how ever, to know that the place to which I have been nominated is but secondary, and that for the first office the Convention has proposed a citizen of tried patriotism and virtue, long and familiarly acquainted with public affairs and public men a safe and sagacious cousellor, who has well fulfilled every trust heretofore committed to his hands and who has illustra ted our history by eminent public services. With my thanks for the courtesy with which you have honored me, in the execution of your office, and with the highest personal respect. I am your obebient servant, WILLIAM A. GRAHAM. Hon. J. G.
