FOR THE NORTH CAROLINA. STANDARD.
A TALE OF ROMANCE.
'Founded on Facts.
It was some time in the beautif'il month of

!.-,,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. To a

which rendered him not an

of air Adeline's hand.

It was on a loveiy evcninsr, ana Aueiine nus
bordering on her seventeenth year, when she im-i
parted to her parents the intelligence, that her
hand was sought in wedlock by young Melville,
in whom she recognized, all the qualities that
make a good husband. 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

..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

house, but sir,. I am no loafer ; no mob-maker;

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.

States law of 1813 and IS19, as captured

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. The ground of decision in regard to

as a matter of diplomacy between that Govern
ment and ours. 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

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.

THE IWDIAW ELIXIR
. 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.
