FOR THE NORTH CAROLINA. STANDARD.
A TALE OF ROMANCE. 'Founded on Facts. It was some time in the beautif'il month of . . i . . !.-,,r -.vhen the hero ol tnis snort narrative j finally concluded to make love to a fair young -damsel,' who Was much admired, and conse quently courted, by most all the young men of her acquaintance. To attempt here to paint, in true colors, the beauty, amiablensss and loveli ness of Adeline, vho is the heroine of this short story, would be a task for which I readily admit my incompetency: but I will, nevertheless ob serve, that I never saw united in the character of: any one lady, to such a degree, all of those amiable qualities which exalt the sex to the highest summit of honorable distinction.

The parents of Adeline troubled at the will manifested by their daugh ter of marrying a man, who, though possessing great comeliness of person, was, they considered, wofully deficient in some other more substantial points, remonstrated with regard to'what they considered the fatal course which she was about to pursue. However much Adeline might have wished to regard the advice of her parent?, (uhomit roust not be denied she loved dearly) yet it is certain she did engage herself to MtlviIle,Mvho because of the inferiority of his wealth compar ed with that of Adeline, was considered by her parents, unworthy of uniting himself in wedlock with their daughter, of whom they expected greater things. But when once the current of j love has got its full sweep, it is hard to turn, yea, ; it is quite impossible. . j Adeline's feelings being deeply wounded at! the indifference with which now to regard her, since her parents seemed ' i j i a u ! liuviii" ucnaicu iiri determination to marry .,, . ajeiviiie, ner ciciicaiei ..constitution would have certainly given way un - der the heavy loads of grief and sorrow, but for j the consolation she received in freauentlv re- ceiving letters from herdevoted Melville, "a copy of one of which I give below: " DearestjAdeline: Having been" so exceed ingly fortunate as to gain your approbation to unite vour destiny with that of mine, rest as sured, that he who now pens this hasty note is Teady and willing, at any time, to sacrifice his life itf the attempt to rescue yoa from the tyrani cal grasp of those who would fain deprire him of a jewel which he values more than his own Jife. Your devoted lover till death. Melville." It is here proper to observe that the parents of Adeline even went to such extremes as to con fine her in a room which they kept fast locked; hoping thereby to wean her affections from Mel- ville. But it was in vain. Whilst confined the room, in which the severity of her parents j had thrown her, Adeline by some means con trived to send a note to Melville, to let him know that her affection for him was not at all less ar dent. Here follows a'copy of the note: My ever dear Melville: Having made known to my parents my intention of accepting your uarni, is lue irue cause or my cruel connne- ment in this room ; even here I think I could be happy with your presence. I rightly appreci ate your wish and intention, to extricate me from the hands and power of those from whom I have received, of late, nothing but tyranny ! But, ah, I fear you cannot ! ! My heart is yours forever, Adeline." From the tenor of these billets the reader will quickly perceive, that the pure stream of love flowed reciprocally.- Melville, having in vain exerted every effort to peaceably rescue Adeline from the hands of her cruel father, finally re solved to have recourse to some other more ef fectual means. Prompted by this determination, Melville set off one morning, to the house of Adeline's par ents. It is unnecessary to observe that he en tered on this journey with mingled feelings of sorrow, hope and joy of sorrow because such a painful alternative was left him ; of hope, be cause he was sanguine of success ; of joy, in the anticipation of a speedy union with his Dul cinea. Melville finally arriving at the end of his jour ney, his heart pulsated strong and loud, as he tapped the door for entrance. Presently came in an old servant who ushered him in the sitting room, to await further ordersjone could scarcely imagine Melville's feelings. Soon appeared the old gentleman of the house, (Adeline's father) who, recognizing Melville at the first glance, accosted him thus: By what authority, sir, do you enter my house which is not a receptacle for villains and loafers. Insidious wretch ! how dare you to make any pretensions to my daugh ter Adeline, who was raised and brought up in all the splendor and luxury of opulence, but whom, it appears, you are desirous to bring to a level with yourself. I will not I can not see my daughter wedded to any common fellow. In that closet where she now is, shall she remain until she arrives to years of better discretion. You wretch, depart from my. house; into Jtvhich I warn you never again to enteratabe peril of your life, which I do assure you I value very little" Melville uttered not a 'word, until the old gen- S man had got through with his abuse; wnen he proceeded in mis 'strum: -louruaugmcr Adeline whom I inter.d to marry, you say, is locked up in that room. I then demand of you th L-nv thftt unlocks that door. . I have no. dis position to intrude upon the sanctity of your house, but sir,. I am no loafer ; no mob-maker; nn Invr nf fnrr.uhs: but. sir.

V- ' Henderson, Feb. 1st, 1840.. . . - Case of the Africans of the Amistad. This perplexing ca'se, which has elicited so much newspaper and lawyer talking, it will be Sspen by the following from the Nmv Haven I Herald, has bren decided bv Judge Judso.v, in favor of the Afi icans he deciding them to be captured slaves. Lieut. Gedne',"of the United States brig Washington, has been allowed sal vage on the vessel and cargo. On the opening of the Court this morning Judge-Judson delivered his decision on this im portant case. After reviewing all the evi dence and the nature of the various claims interposed in rbehi!f of the several claimants, his Honor decided that the 'claim, of Lt. Ged nfyaridthe ofiirers of the UuitedStnies brig Washington, for salvage on the vessel,, the A mistad and cargo, was legal and valid, Lt. G. havinsr declined any interest in the slaves, as properly. 1 he claims of Messrs. ureen and Fordham, of Lonjr Island, was dismissed. ,,,, . . , , . - . . iii::ioi uie A.ficans, iti meir own behalf, was Clicln:.i 0j the Judge most fully decidod jihat they came properly within the United States law of 1813 and IS19, as captured s and as sucfi remanded to tne possession and protection of the United States Government, to be returned to their native country, except ing Antonio, the Slave of the' Captain, of the Am istad who was retored to the heirs of his mas ter as being legally held under the laws of i Spain.

All other claims were preter mitted.. The amount of salvage awarded to Lt. Ged ney and crew is one third of the vessel & cargo, under appraisement. , His Honor the judge occupied about two hours in the delivery of his review and decision of the case, which was done in a very lucid and im pressive manner. It meets the approbation of all we have heard speak of it & we believe will honor to his legal acumen and humanity as a man. It is said, that once, on an occasion when "a distinguised citizens of North Carolina was dis gusted by the laste of some beverage or other which 'vas placed before him at a public table to nnSWPT th( n1nff nf n nfTn rr tart hn uril-iim. ed, 'boy! if this is tea brin" me coffee, and if it is conee Drtng me tea.' Be Civil. Many persons imagine that unless they behave with rudeness towards their superi ors they cannot command respect. The homage done to such individuals may appear like respect, but the inward feeling in every instance is that of contempt. One's conduct should always be civil, and politeness alone can disarm the malice of pride, and form a guard against the venom of the vulgar. NOTICE. , . e ?r..

A CURE FOR Cough 's, Asthma, Inflammation of the Lungs, Is a vegetable extract, of an agreeable taste, and cer tain in its happy results. The s-ecret of making this pleasant elixir was communicated by an Indian chie, or mediciner as he was called, to an English physician attached to the command of Gen. Wolfe, after the ca pitulation of Quebec, as. an act of gratitude for some favor he had received during the progress of that affair. Shortly after this transaction the professional gentle man was recalled, (by the decease of some wealthy con nexions at home,) to the possession of an ample for tune. Although the doctor abandoned bis former pur suits, he never relinquished the -practice of the "Indian Elixir," which he prescribed to a very great extent with out receiving any compensation whatever, except the reward which attends the performance of a good action. After the death of the doctor, from the same humane motives, his descendants continued the use of the re ceipt for a long time, as our numerous testimonals will show, till the increasing demand made it necessary that they should form some such arrangement as should de liver Ihem from the trouble, and yet not diminish its usefulness. The heir, therefore, finally willed to do the business entirely by agency; making only so mod erate a charge, as merely to defray the expenses ol pre paring the' medicine. With a view to this object, the executors have appointed C. E- HOIT the sole agent for North America and the West India Islands ; who will reside in New-York, and appoint such sub.aeenls as, in his judgment, necessity may require. Certifi cates and letters of lecommendaiion may be had of the agents, where many of the originals may be examined, which would satisfy the most fastidious. As the article is not sold with a desire to make the profit an object, the folly of a false represention must appear obvious to every reasonable person. Price $1 per bottle.
