Sweet Songstress of Stockholm, Welcome,' thrice" welcome to the f Homes" of America and. to the hearts' of thine 'American sisters. Though : in thisr far-off Hesperia we have not looked upon thy face nor heard the music - of thy voice, yet our .spirits have often" traversed the trackless billows between us, and have caught the impressions of thine, and we have , learned to love thee. Thy name, sweet jenny, has become to us "familiar as a household word, even from the fashionable emporiums of the east to the numblest settle ment of our Pacific frontiers. Not an ice-girt hamlet of the north but has heard of thy fame; not a palace of the luxurious and sunny south but longs to bid thee welcome ! ' ' We have traced thy history from the moment when thy infantine voice first broke upon the ear of ap preciating intelligence, and awoke sympathy in the true votaries of music We have read of thy induc tion to thaf'inner temple, where the cilted of heaven alone resort have learned the resolute smugglings which burst the fetters of difficulty, and know that ".hxcelsior" has been the watchword of each dav. We know that crowned heads and titled nobility, philosophy and science, poetry and art, and even religion herself, have wreathed thy brow with their laurels and laid their treasures at thv feet. And we know. also, that all these have failed to cor- rupt thy maiden spirit, and that Jen ny Lind greets her sisters of repub lican America as lovingly as in the days of seclusion and endurance. Sweet vestal of a heaven-born art! thy teet stand upon the mount of inspiration, and as the silver-lined clouds float around thee, thy spirit listens to harmony celestial, and catches from their strains "unwrit ten music;" and the munificence of heaven tunes thy hps to convey its expressions to a listening world. 1 nine eye has glanced at the innu merable company of spiritual har pers with their distant "voice of many waters," and thv whole beine became baptized in' the Tduntain of humility and love. And thou wilt stoop to no degrading strains. I The whole "dignity of music" shall in thee be sweetly, sublimely personi fied. Come to us, then, sweet sister of the north, and, though our hearts beat quicker, and we hush the breath ol our lips, and the fountains of soul overflow at our eyes, we will listen, admire, and love. And those pure strains of thine, Heaven's own free gift, that voice immaculate, they are not free to all. We of the western vale, secluded in our rustic villages and cottage homes, to us thy coming is vain. Fain would we look upon thee, sweet Jenny Lind, and listen to thy inspi ring notes; but, alas! the privilege is not ours, and the pride of man ex cludes us. And yet we hope; lor Rumor, with her thousand tongues, has told us of the warm gushings of thy benevolence and the truthfulness of thy simplicity. O, then, wilt thou not leave, for a while, the palaces of pride and luxury, and the halls of j heartless, capricious fashion, and, obeying the pure impulse of nature, repose thyself within the calm pre cincts of this western paradise? Tistrue we can not tender thee mil lions of gold; but, from the bounties of our common father, we can im part a goodly portion. " We can welcome, thee to our homes and hearts, can provido sweet couches on which thou canst rest, and pure food for thy refreshment. We can lead thee to groves delightful as those of the father-la ndr and bills loft v as Sweden's own. Illimitable forests are rearing their sable tops to meet the skies, and oceans of waving green spread out their vast expanse. Grottos and ' vales' are here, where the foot of man but seldom intrudes. We can- lead thee to mighty reser voirs, whose rushing breaks upon the ear sublimely; even as the splrit- lones wnicn guide my own soat breathing strains. ! Come,' then, and treeiy roam beside our silver-tooted streams and -crvstat takes. :and.'ln the quiet of our Eden groves, sing to us the: isongs of home, of love, and heaven J Uur fathers and our broth ers shall ' protect you; our mothers shall be your nurses Mn sickness, our sisters vshaU lead vou forth in tha pure' air, our children shall cull the sweetest of "flowers Vas the- votive offering cf innocence, and the aspi rations of all shall bring you the hlessmesof heaven.'

' Heary Clay. Greelv; of the N. Y. Tribune, closes a notice of Henry Clay thus: f-Mr.' Clay," we suppose, is des tined never, to be President a des tiny which men as good as be have encountered without murmuring. So with him. . . Yet it is bard to think in regard to one so quilified, that he has been excluded from that lofty station, not by his undeniable faults, but by his virtues. Had he, in con nection with his great qualities', been cat-paced and plausible' had he been careful to trim his sails to the popu lar breeze and never speak till he was sure that what he purposed to say would be well received had he served his country less and flattered his countrymen more he, too, might have placed his name on the roll of the Presidents of the United States. Yet it is better as Providence has ordered it.' The missing statue : of Brutus was, more remarked than, the present statues ol others equally il lustrious. No special, stamp of pop ular approval is needed to diffuse and perpetuate the lame ot iienry Clay. While Liberty shall have a resting-place among the crags of the Andes or Greece rekindle on her rocky coasts one gleam of her ancient glory while Labor shall find in wide diversity of pursuits a. fuller recompense, a steadier market and a broader path to independence while steamboats shall plow one tributary ol the Father of Waters or cars traverse on iron tracks the rugged hills of the East or the yield ding prairies of the West so lonar must the great champion ol Liberty in. other lands and genuine Inde pendence In our own of a' Varied and reciprocating Home Industry and of Internal Improvements - to facilitate the exchange of its pro ducts be gratefully remembered; and when at last he shall be gathered to his fathers this epitaph may fitly be inscribed above his dust: r : - "Here lies THE NOBLEST AMERICAN, . To whom hit countrymen persistently refused their highest honors. Because, while ever eager to serve, he was too . sincere, too manly to cajole them. Fatriot Header! Contrast hit lofty, enduring fame with the deepening obscurity of a Trier or a Folk, : . And be inspired to imitate bis , . glorious example." , is An English Opinion of Geo. Thompson. . We quote from the New York Al bion, the well-known English organ in this country, and edited by an Englishman, the following 7 upon George Thompson: ' - "The deliberate violation of a solemn and self imposed trust, justly draws down upon the offending par ty the anger and contempt ol his fel lows; and Mr. George Thompson, an unworthy member of the Bri tish Parliament, stands unquestiona bly in this predicament. . That Par liament is now in. session, and this recreant to his duties is three thou sand miles away, stirring up strife ia a foreign country, periling the great cause of liberty of speech, bringing the name of his countrymen into disrepute and playing such fantastic tricks before the American public as stamp him a political mountebank.- The Iowa of Springfield,' Mass., has been the theatre in which he exhibit ed, himself early in the past week, forcing himself upon an, unwilling populace, and recklessly endanger ing the . peace of the town. The man who faces danger, unpopularity and' prejudice, at the call of dutv, deserves our highest esteem; but the charlatan who betrays his constitu ents, turn a deaf ear to the cries ol suffering' humanity at his door, and intrudes nis spurious., philanthropy where it is offensive and useless resolute though he may be and gifted with abmty we pronounce such a man to he a public nuisance, and we honestly believe that ninety-nine'ont of a hundred Englishmen on this Continent will join in the verdict."

Fortune," they say, is a fickle dame tuil ol her freaks and capriceaj who bhndlv distributes her . favors wnh out the slightest discrimination. ' So inconstant, so wavering is she repre sented, tnat her most laiiniuj vota ries can place -no reliance on her promises. Disappointment, they tell us, is the lot of those who macs of ferings at herthrine. Now,!! this, we think, is a vile slander upon the dear, blind fady. We are firmly per suaded; ' however seemingly 4upri eious she may be, that all who court her favors In the proper manner are almost sure of being rewarded with ner smiles. , ' " Although' wealth often appears the result of mere accident, or- a fortunate 'concurrence of favorable circumstances without any exertion ot skill or foresight, vet we think that every man of sound health and unimpaired mind, may become the architect of his own fortune. I Wealth may be considered as ao effect flow ing from natural causes. INow, that which contemplative philosophy corresponds with thecause.m practi cal science becomes the rule.md.as ig norance of the cause defeats the ef- feet, we must, in order to produce given result ascertain ita causes. What then, are the conditions upon which a fortune can be acquired? A: correct answer to this .question will constitute the art of money-get ting, which -we now proceed to un- ...y .,. ; i . .,, ,. u ...: Foremost in the list of requisites, are honest, and strict integrity every transaction of life.1, Let man have the reputation of being lair and upright in his dealings, an he will possess the confidence of all who know him. Without these qualities every other merit will prove unavailing, ask concerning a man, is he active and capable?" Yes. ndustrious, temperate and regular in his habits? ' Oh, yes. v li he hon est? is he trust-worthy? -""Why, as to that, I am sorry to iay he is not to be trusted; he wants watch- ng: he'is a little trickv, and will take an undue advantage, if he can. Then,' I . will have nothing to do with him;" will be the invariable re ply. Why, then, Is honesty the best policy? because, without it vou will get a bad name and every body will shun you. r A character for knavery will prove an insurmountable obstacle to suc cess in almost every undertaking. t will be found that the straight line in business, as in geometry, the shortest. In a word, it is almost mpossible for a dishonest mau to ac- uire wealth by a regular processol business; because he is shunned as a depredator upon society. Needy -men are apt to- deviate from the rule of integrity, under the plea that necessity knows no law; they misht as well add. that it knows shame.- Ihe course is suicidal, and by destroying all confidence, ever keeps them immured in poverty, al though thev mar possess every oth quality for success in the world. " Tunctua itv. which is said , to be e soul of business, is another im portant element in the art of money- cettinir. The man known to he scrupulously , exact in the fulfilment his engagements, gains, the confi dence of all.and may command all the means he can use to . advantage; hereas, a man careless and regard less o his piomises in money mat ters, will '.have every purse closed gainst him. , Therefore be prompt your payments. . , , . , , . i , We will next consider the ad van. tages of a cautious circumspection our intercourse wita the world. Slowness of belief, and a i proper dis trust are essential to success. , The credulous and 7 confiding arejever the dupes of knaves and impostors. Ask those who have lost their prop, erty bow it happened, and you will find in the most -cases it has been owing; , to ; misplaced confidence. One has lost by endorsing; another crediting; another by false repre sentations; all.ef which a little more foresight,:: and a little more distrust would have prevented. . .

Vre 'are now to consider a' very important principle in the business of money-getting, namely, indus try persevering, indefatigable at tention to business. Persevering dil igence is the philosopher's stone, which turns every . thing to gold. Constant, regular, habitual and sys. tnmatic application to business must, time, if properly directed, pro duce great results. - It must lead to wealth with the same certainty that poverty follows m the tram of idle ness and inattention. - It has been truly remarked, that he who-fol lowshis'-amusements instead of his business, W(I1 in a short lime have no business to follow. . The art of money-saving is an 1m portaat part of the art of money getting.' Without frugality no one can become rich; with it few would poor., ihose who, consume-as fast as they produce, are on the road to ruin.' As most of the pov erty we meet with, grows out of idleness and extravagance, so most large fortunes have been the result habitual industry and frugality. The practice of economy is as neces sary in the expenditure of .time as of money,. 1 hey say . that if "we take care ot the pence the pounds will take care of themselves.". ; So, we take care of the .minutes, , the days will take care of themselves, The acquisition of wealth demands much - self-denial and as many sacrifices of present gratification, as the practice of virtue itself. Vice and poverty proceed, in some degree, Irom the same sources, namely the disposition to sacrifice the future to present; the inability to forego a small present pleasure for great fu ture advantages. Men fail, of for tune in this world, as they fail of happiness in the world to come; sim because thev are unwilling to deny themselves momentary enjoy ments (or the sake of permanent hap piness.:, i ! : ---.-j : j i Every large city is filled with persons, who,in order to support appearance of wealth, constant ly . live beyond their income, and make up the deficiency by contracting debts which are never paid.

"the , city ,upon the" Lake shore," and arrived here af ter stopping two days in Columbus, or Wednesday Jast. , The Cleveland and Columbus, Railroad is a fine im provement and wifl add greatly to the improvement of the part of our State through which it passes, but there has been .'an oversight in its structure that must be repaired soon, or it willsoon be classed among our poorest roads. In the hurrvof buil ding the superstructure, and laying down- the rails they have put the cross-planks upon the bare ground, wita nothing under, like sub-sills or ballast,' to keep the track firm, hence in some places where the frost was in the ground when the planks were put down, the track is as uneven as it can well be, the ground having, as the frost disappeared, slightly settled away from the track; causing an up and down motion of the cars as they pass over these places, that is any. thing but pleasant or comfortable. t reminded me of a rapid ride I once took in a lumber wagon over an old fashioned corduroy road in this part of the State; but noth withstanding this, the road is bound to become one of the most important to the commercial and travelling community of any in the State. I was surprised to sea so much dense and swampy woodland on this route between Columbus and allion. I had supposed that part of the interior cf the State was set. tied and improveJ. At Gallion we crossed the Pennsylvania and Belle fontain road, the grade of which is begun and I shoulJ judge in a good state of forwardness, but I am of opinion that we are cutting up the State too much by Railroads, and I don't believe the stockholders in that road will ever in their lives realize one farthing of profit from the stock. I go for internal improvements and 1 would foster them to a judi cious extent by legislative encourage ment; but as the Railroad mania is now raging, I fear that there will be a vast amount of capital invested and tied up in unprofitable roads, that would be better for the country if it were turned into other channels. In somet sections we need Railroads even if they don't or would not pay; say from your place on ihe river into the interior to Chillicothe, or from Marietta to penetrate the into rior; such roads are public necessities and should be built with all due des patch, but there are many roads cros- singand recrossingin the interior and other parts ol this State, projected, or in progress of construction, that will be to their builders, projectors and creditors, what a bad speculation is to many a young merchant, and our people should think ot this n time to save themselves from a vast amount of debt, and also a vast amount of worthless stock. Ihe Railroad from here to Pittsburgh will be opened publicly to Ravenna, 40 miles east of this, on Tuesday next. This road is built in a very substan tial manner, and will be when com pleted one ol the firmest and best roads in the Union. Indeed when the Cleveland and Erie road, and the one to Pittsburgh are finished, 1 know of no place in the whole coun try that will be located so advan tageously and possess such vast fa cilities for intercommunication and commercial connection as Cleveland. The "Forest City" must soon rival in importance any other town on the lakes, and excepting Buffalo, sur pass them all in population and wealth, as she does in beauty, activity and enterprise. .. . of in a are by by it A the and , The new Constitution as a whole well received hern by all classes of politicians and citizens, and I think that Northern Ohio will give a large majoritv, and a hearty one in favor its adoption, and I like it far bet ter than any one I have ever seen. and shall go for it with a hearty good will. .
