The waters rushing past, The thin cloud scudding overhead, And rain gathering fast. The mortal-freighted boat sweeps on, Full farther from the shore; The iron wheel, the graceful prow. Will track the deep no more. Still on she rides, a noble boat, Queen mistress of the lakes, When suddenly a sheet of flame From wheel and gangway breaks. The groan, the cry, the piercing shriek, Ring o'er the heaving lake, And, echoing from the distant shore In mournful murmurs break. The flame ascends; the brightened fire Sends fort its lurid glare, And casts its melancholy light On men in wild despair. The mother, to the father clings, The husband to the wife, And, bowing to the fire king's throne, Plead earnestly for life. But see, on yonder deck, a boy. Who cries, with accents wild, To one who struggles in the sea, "Oh, father, save your child!" The father hears not, answers not That tender pleading tone; That father finds a watery grave, The orphan weeps alone. Call now on Rod, my gentle boy, All mortal hope is gone; Thy dearest earth'y friend is dead, . And thou art left alone. The poor bov bears, and answers not And still the flames roll on; Be thinks of Him who came to make Each friendless chi'd his own. Calm is that brow, serene that heart. So late with anguish riven; For Hod has whispered to that child Of happiness and heaven. Again is heard the orphan prayer. But now in accents mild; The little sufferer turns to God . "O Father, save thy child!" The morning comes, and on the shore, Is stretched one little form, Whose face is hallowed with a smile, Defiant of the storm. Great loss op Life. A British transport steamer, the Birkenhead, ith a portion of the 91st regiment on board, when near Cape Town, on the South coast of Africa, struck a rock, and io fifteen minutes went to pieces and 446 persons perished. The women and children were got into a boat before it broke ap, and were saved, and a part of the crew and troop got to the shore, but the great mass of then, perished. Such a loss of life seldom occurs. A Beats Maic. A man named Smith, who lives in Milton, la., was one of the passengers who was blown op bv the explosion of the Redstone. Escaping uninjured, the Banner, at Madison, says he swam ashore and procured some kind of water craft, with which he boarded the burning wreck three limes, res cuing from fire and water five females ana threfl males; after which he re turned the fourth time, but found no- ooay on board. -. Governor Jones in New York. The following is an extract from the speech of Hon. James C. Jokes, United States Senator from Tennes see, at a Whig gathering in New York city, a short time since: The Whig party is a sound, na tional, conservative party. The other is a progressive, aggressive, wild, utilitarian, agrarian party. One takes up every ism in the land. The other' holds to an inflexible devo tion to the constitution and the laws of the land. So thinking.it is not wonderful that I ardently desire the success of this party. I should be false to myself and to principles. My devotion is not of the head only, but of the heart. I believe and love them, and will always maintain them. If these are essential to our institutions, how solemn the respon- sibility that rests upon us! Who will not sacrifice everything to main tain them? Who will not lav down all personal and selfish feeling in the cause? We have had many fierce conflicts sometimes we have tri umphed and sometimes the other side; and now, with these principles be fore us, shall we surrender to the enemy and abandon the field? No, never! Then how are we to man- tain them? I am a plain man, gen tlemen, and I shall plainly speak; and if I shall injure any man's feel ing', let him not ascribe it to any un worty motive. New York has been always generous and gracious tome. Yet I would not conceal one opinion of mine to get the approval of every man, woman and child in New York. How are we to sustain these principles? We are on the verge of another great conflict. In a few months we shall be drawn up in battle array; and we must go with a leader. Don't be alarmed, gentle men; we must look at this question. Now who is to lead the Whig party? Tell me what sort of a fight would you make if you went into the fight in this way some shouting Scott, some Webster, some fiiimorer Why it's the very thine I've come to talk about, otherwise I shouldn't be here. In the name of liberty, I ask you if you are willing to sacrifice everything by these personal differ ences? Let me tell you a truth we must unite or we cannot conquer. The Democrats may quarrel now, but they will unite. They always quarrel, but they do it oil before the nomination; then they shoulder arms, and march into line. Mian we do otherwise? Is it not the sole secret of success? It is right you should have your preferences. I have had them, per haps too strongly. I have honored one man to such a degree mat i fancied if I could not follow his nod ding plume to success, I could lie down disheartened. In 1S40, as this friend will testify, when I heard that Henry Clay was defeated, I was ready to (old my arms and declare I Duld fight no more; but I asked myself, do you not owe your coun try an effort to repair the wrong? I saw my folly 1 fought for General Harrison. I found this same feeling here. You feel as if you must have your own friend or you cannot fight. But for me, I will fight for any Whig against anv Democrat. 1 protest, solemnly, in the name of the found ers and the integrity and hopes of this country and of the Whig party in the name ol liberty ana our common hopes, I protest against this division in the party. It must needs result in defeat. Now don t shout when I mention names. I am trying to talk Tennessee. If you nominate Mr, Fillmore, why do you do it? Because of his integrity and ability. But do you wish to expose him to de feat? No. Then if he is nominated you want to elect him. Well, can you elect hitn without the friends of Gen. Scott and Mr. Webster? Is not this the case with the others? You must have the friends of all to elect one; Yes, yes. Well, gentle men, then you have decided the ques tion here to-night. You have pro claimed the need of union. Use every effort for your own favorite, but if you lail, then join hands with the rest for the election of whomso ever is named by ine party, i say that I am in favor of the Whig nomi nee, with one reservation. I would not support any man for President, be who he may, who was not utterly devoted to the constitution of my country. Any man who does honor that constitution I would vote lor, if he were nominated, even though I did not like him personal v. I am not behind any man here in love of friends. I cling to them forever, and in fighting, I fight to the last. unui Heaven has decreed defeat, and then, like the coon to Cant. Scott, I come down. I The crystal palace bill has passed the New York legislature. Storm and Flood East. At Bos ton, on the 19th, the storm had continued for 36 hours, and was still prevailing violently. It was severe all along the Atlantic coast. The Potomac was very high on the 20th, higher than known for many years. The long bridge at Washington City was swept away. At Harper's Ferry much damage was done by the flood to houses, barns and bridges. Many cattle swept away. The Winchester Railway was inundated for several miles, and considerably damaged. The water rose within two feet of the high water mark ol she great flood of 1S47. Several serious breaches are reported in the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal. The freshet in the Susquehannah inun dated portions of Columbia and Wrightsville. Cleveland Herald. Well Said. From the Knicker bocker," now lying before us, we take the following passage from the "Editor's Table." Clarke, writing from Wash ington, says: Passing the National lintel, at two o'clock on this bright and cloudless warm Sunday, we saw a tnll figure clad in a blue cloak, attended only by a lady and child, enter a coach before the door. It was He.nrt Clat. That eagle eye was not dimmed, though the great states man's natural force was abated. We raised our hat, and bowed our reverence and admiration; our salutation was gracefully returned, and the carriage was driven away. As we walked on to keep an engagement to dine, we thought of the late words of that eminent pa triot 'If the days of my usefulness, as I have too much reason to fear, be in deed passed, 1 desire not to linger an impotent spectator of the oft-scanned field of lifo. I have never looked upon old age, deprived of the faculty of enjoy ment, of intellectual perceptions and en ergies, with any sympathy, and for such 1 think the day of fate cannot arrive too soon.' One can hsrdly choose but drop a tsar over such a remark from such a man." I IO3 The flood in the little Kana wha river has been productive of very serious damage to property in three or four counties through which that stream runs. The average depth of water on the bottoms was ten feet. Corn cribs and hay stacks, fences, out houses, and in some in stances the soil on the plowed fields was swept away, producing a perfect desolation. Affidavit Ao Aires Kossctii. The Jackson (Miss.) Star says that while Kossuth was in that city on a visit to Governor Foote, a distinguished citizen of an adjoining county made an affidavit agains him, charging him with a violation of the neutrality act of ISIS, and praying for a war rant for his arrest. The application was refused. From the Baltimore Patriot. WASHINGTON April 22nd. The Whig Caucus, as your renders are aware, was not perfectly har monious, but it has fixed on the time and place of holding the Convention at Baltimore on June I6th. Why the 16th was assigned instead of the 17th, the anniveisary of the Battle of Bunker Hill, I am at a loss to de termine. The 17th had been named, and it was favorably received. But the die is cast, and every body is disposed to acquiesce. Notwith standing the secession of certain "anti-secession" Southern Whigs, the Scott stock has considerably ad vanced, since the Caucus. Infact.it seems to be generally conceded here just now, that the General is to be the nominee of the convention. The politicians seems to be making their arrangements in accordance with this foregone conclusion. We shall see what we shall see if the wires are in order on the 16th ol June, and if the "wire pullers" hold out. In the mean time let it be borne in mind, that there is many a slip between the cup and the lip." think, as at present advised, that the Democrats begin to take it for granted, that this result is inevitable, and that they' will endeavor to place in the field a candidate, who will be most likely to beat the tall plume. Who shall he ue? Gen. Cass, or "Young America," or some third resort? It will be settled in less than six weeks, and then for the stump. We may expect one of the toughest fights ever recorded in American a LEON. The Suffolk Bank Defalcation It is now officially announced that the Suffolk Bank loss bv Brewer and Rand, will be $214,515 25, and yet the bank will pay a dividend of 5 per cent for the past six months, and have a surplus left of their reserved lund or $140,000. , The sum has been abstracted within the past year, and sunk in stock speculations.' be th Boston Atlas. The New Tax Lew. The township assessors will bear in mind that, under the new Locofoco tax law, they are obliged to require each citizen to return To. taxation all the personal property which he may posess the law says "every thing tangible, being the subject of owner ship, whether animate or inanimate" from which may then be deducted $200. In making his return, the tax payer is required, and this should be borne in mind by every assessor to give in all his crops of. whatever kind on hand, and all his grain growing in his Jields; all his horses, cults, cattle, calves, sheep, lambs, hogs, pigs, chickens, ducks, geese, and all other animals having a property value, without regard to age; all his bees, hives, guns, looms, side and other saddles, harness, and gears; all his household and kitchen furniture, in cluding all kinds of stoves, dishes, pots, kettle, cups, mugs, &f,; all his cord wood, lumber, wool, flix, straw and hay; all his wagons, carts pi ws. harrows, hoes, rnkes, and all other farming utensils; all his carriages. buggies, ileighs, jumpers, and wheel barrows; all his family pictures, bibles, hymn books, school books. and other books in short everything in his possession containing n proper ty value, and "being the subject of ownership. In his interpretation of the law, issued before the law was passed, the Auditor ol Slate savs: "The necessary wearing appearel, and all articles of food, provided lor the current use and support of nn individual or family, are not to be - r-AoA ne Ytr c f fa vtt rr " V'll UV.U us V ' tr J VULJ 'l iuuwn( This is not so. The law itself, says, sec. 2 : "The term personal property, wherever used in this act, shall be held to mean and i.ncltde every tangible thihq, the subject of owner ship, WIIBTER ANIMATE OF INANIM ATE, other than money, and nof lorming any part of any parcel of real prop ertyas hereinhefr re defined." Food and clothing are things tangi ble, and are therelore subjects ol ownership and ol taxation, including the food, fixtures, toys and tackel ol "the baby," as well as of the adult. The law makes no exceptations, and of course the Auditor can make none. Everything is intended' to be em braced. Under this sweeping definition, not a thing, the subject of ownership, and of one single cent's value, can be omitted in making out a statement of property. No matter what may be its character, or the form in which it may exist, or how comparatively valuless or unprofitable, if it posses ses a money value ol a single stiver, it must be returned for taxation. Let those who swear to their state ments, remember these facts. "I was walking with Mr. Web ster, down this walk," said a friend of ours, as we descended into Ptnnr sylvania avenue from the Capitol, "soon after Haynehad concluded his famous speech; and I said to Mr. Webster, "I am afraid. Sir, that that speech is unanswerable." "We shall see Sir, replied Mr Webster, taking ofThis hit, and passing h'n hand two or three times over his forehead; "we shall see, S i r to-morrow; we shall see to monoxrr' And they did see, and so, since, has the world seen. Would that we COUld hare ta- I ken the hand of the great "De'ender of the Constitution" in the very the ater of his renown! Schools iji Virginia.
