THE BIRCHEN CANOE.
' BT H. B. SCHOOLCRAFT. In therigion of lakes, where the blue water sleep, My teutiful fabrio was built; Light Cedars supported its weight on the deep, And its sides with the sunbeamawere gilt. The bright leafy bark of the betula tree, A flexible sheathing provides, And the fir's thready roots drew ;he parts to agree, And bound down its high swelling sides. No compass or gravel was used on the bark, No art but the simplest degree, But the structure was finished and trim to remark, And as light as a sylph ere could be. Its rim is with tender young roots woven round, Like a pattern of wicker-work rare, And it glides o'er the waves with as lightsome a bound, Aa a basket suspended in air. The heavens in brightness and glory below, Were reflected quite plain to the view, And it moved like swan, with as lightsome a show, My bsautilul birchen canoe! The trees on the shore as I glided along, Seemed moving a contiary way, And my voyagers lightened their toil with a song, That caused every heart to be gay. And still as I floated by rock and by shell, My bark raised a murmur aloud. And it danced on the waves as they rose and they fell, - Like a fay on a bright summer cloud. I thought, as I passed o'er the liquid expanse, With landscape in smiling array, How blest I should be, if my life could advance Thus tranquil and sweetly away. The skies were serene not a cloud woe in sight, Not an angry surge beat on the shore. And I gazed on the waters and then on the light, Till my vision could bear it nt more. Oh, long shall I think of those silver-bright lakes, And the scenes they reveald to my view, My friends,andthe wishes I formed for their sokes, And my blight yellow birchen canoe! '" The World's Estimation op a VVohtiiy Man. He has never committed any excess never gambled or incurred debt or fallen into the warm errors most common with his sex. He was a good husband a careful father an agreeable neighbor rather cliai itable than otherwise to the poor. He was honest and methodical in dealing, and had been known to behave handsomely in dif ferent relations of life. Mr. Robert Beau fort, endeed, always meant to do what was right in the eyes of the world! He had 110 other rule ot action than mat which the world supplied: his religion was decorum his sense of honor was regard to opinion. His heart was dial to which the world was a sun: when tho great eye of the public fell on it, it answered every purpose that a heart could answer; but when that eye was invisi bl, the dial was mute a piece of brass, and nothing more. (7- At a recent meeting of the French Academy, one of the members read an inter esting memoir of Bailly tho famous astrono mer and a conspicuous personage 111 the French Revolution. In the course ol the memoir the author related the first interview of Bailly and Franklin, as follows: " The illustrious delegate from Pennsyl vania entertained, on his arrival in France, the idea that our countrymen love inordinate ly to hear themselves talk; and would infi nitely rather speak tnan listen. When the philosopher and the astronomer met for the first time, the latter kept silence, expecting a question from the illustrious stranger. Franklin, on his side, did not open his mouth; at the end of half an hour, neither having yet uttered any thing, Bailly took out his snuff box and offered a pinch to the other mute. Franklin motioned that he did not use snuff; anither half hour elapsed in the same way, after which, Bailly having risen to depart, Franklin seized his hand, saying: Very well. Mr. Bailly very well, indeed!"' Nations without fiiie. It is said that fire was entirely unknown to many nations of antiquity, and even at the present day it is unknown in some parts of Africa. The in habitants of the Marian Islands, which were discovered in 1551, had no idea of fire, and expressed the greatest astonishment on first beholding it believing it to be some kind of living animal which fed on wood. The in habitants of the Philippine and Canary Isl ands wei formerly equally ignorant. "Dean Swift very plausibly traces the 'opposition to kingly government in England' directly to the influence ot those rrotestants, driven abroad by the persecutions under Queen Mary, who, for a time, "resided at Ue neva, which is a commonwealth governed without a king, where the religion contrived by Calvin is without the order of Bishops.' " It is not known where he that invented the plough was born, nor where he died; yet he has effected more for the happiness of the world, than the whole race of heroes and conquerors who have drenched it with tears and manured it with blood, and whose birth, parentage and education have been handed down to us with a precision proportionate to the mischief they have done. fj- A man killing hogs, became vexed, and venting his spleen, wished they were in h 11. "Oh, dear me, mother, what can he mean?" exclaimed his little daughter. "Mean? I suppose the awful wretch wants Yiia rtrnvialnna flAllr nn hpfnrahnnH " " Attention the Whole." A major of militia, in Pennsylvania, who had recently been elected, and who was not overburthened with brains, took it into his head on the morning of parade, to go out and exercise a little by himself. The " field" selected for this purpose was his own stoop. Placing himself in a military attitude, with his sword trrawn,he exclaimed (t Attention the whole I Rear rank, three paces march!" and he tumb led down tho cellar. His wife hearing the noise occasioned in falling, came running out, and asked, " My dear have you killed yourself?" " Go into the house, woman," Slid the' major " what do you know about wart" A man has been sentenced 09 years to the Missouri State Prison; for murder! Prospectus of (he Ohio Statesman.' THE undersigned, respectfully announce to the Democracy of Ohio, that they have purchased of Col. Samuel Medary, all his interest in the Ohio Statesman newspaper, from and ufter the 1st of July, 1815. The paper will, as heretofore, advocate, unflin chingly, Democratic Principles and measures, and give the strongest support to the regu larly nominated candidates of the Democratic Party, that it Will be in the power of the un dersigned to afford. To firmly support the National Administration to maintain the right of this country to the territory of Oregon to uphold tho great doctrine of the sove-. reign 1 y of the people, as contended for by the patriot Dorr to contend for the adjust ment of the tariff in such a manner as shall do justice to the great Agricultural interest of the West to labor for the settlement of the National Finance question in a way that shall pvevent the public moneys from becom ing the means of individual aggrandizement and to strenuously support any measure calculated to make the laws of Ohio embodi ments of the principles of Liberty and Equa lity, and to give to tho State a sound cur rency; these are the objects which the un dersigned propose to iheinselves in the new and arduous position which they have as sumed. Their success must depend upon the amount and the character of the support which they shall receive at tho hands of the Democracy of the great Empire Slate of the West, whose voice in the National Councils is so important, and whose example, in the managementof their internal affiirs, is destin ed to exert a vast influence upon all quar ters of the Union, and particularly to givo a character to the legislation of the new com munities which are constantly arising, and demanding to be admitted to the rights and privileges enjoyed by the members of the confederacy. The undersigned have invested ti largo amountof capital in their present undertaking. They have brought to its support, whatever of talent and enterprise they possess. Their interest is identical with that of the West; and there is no incentive to exertion no motive which can incite .men to a f lithful discharge of important duties which is not moving them to labor for tho good of that portiou of the confederacy into whose hands the physical and moral powers of the nation are rapidly passing. Under these circum stances, they feel that they are privileged to ask for that support and to look for that con fidence from the Democracy of Ohio, without which all their labors must be worse than performed in vain. The undersigned propose making some mechanical improvements in the paper, which will render it more worthy tho support of the public. A fiir proportion of the pnper will be devoted to miscellaneous reading and news matter.
