Oh, then, sweet minstrel! why shoud'stthou Wear gloom and sorrow on thy brow Why wake thy lyre to sorrowing themes, Since life is filled with pleasant dreams, And friends, and love and hope are thine, Aad holy lights around thee shine? Yet will I not upbraid the view Tboj tak'st of life, though dark its I will not chide—I too have felt My heart, when ncrv'd most sternly, melt I know that tears may dim the eye, Aad mihtswill sometimes veil the sky,**—. Yet Faith's sweet star, forever urighl, Will tinge the darkest cloud with light." HINTS ON MATRIMONY.—The follow ing very sensible remarks we tind among our clippings without credit attached, tho' the author is well deserving of credit for having penned them, lie lakes a matter of fact commuiiscnse, view of ihe subject, and tells a great deal of truth in fvw words. Listen to him No woman will be likely lo dispute us, when we assert that marriage is her destiny. A man may possibly fill up some sort of an existence without loving but a woman with noth ing to love, cherish, care for, and minister to, is an anomaly in the universe, an exis tence without an object. It is as natural for a woman to have some onu lo cling to for advice and assistence as to breath.— Without it no woman ever was or ever can be happy. It is the want of her na ture, and nothing can satisfy hit li^art wilh such a void unfilled. Now, with the exception of some occa sional irregularities in the relative propor tions of the fexes, produced by circum stance?, such as the settlement of new countries, there is r.o reason why every inan'should not have a wife, and every woman a husband and this would be ea sily brought about bj the exercise of com mon sense, and lees ambition. Each sex is looking up for some above ils own spere. The son of an industrious and sue ccssful mechanic must be "a professional man or merchant, iuvtead of following in his lather's footiteps& this is folly the first When lie looks around for a wife, the neat, industrious daughter of a mechanic like his father, is not good enough for him he must make love to some fine lady, who is one generation in advance, that is her grandfather was a mechanic, in stead of her father, a very atrocious dis tinction. On the other hand, the girl who works for her living earning it by her hon est labors, would not design to encourage the address of a laboi ing man she would set her cap for a gentleman forsooth! The mechanic's daughter, educated on her father's hard earning to be a fine lady, en courages the attentions of A set of fops and dangler.-*, who drive sensible and honest men away from her in disgust, and she becomes the victim of some jsharper or some shallow fool. Now this is all wrong, deplorably, wretched wrong. Girls should know that men, superior to themselves in education and position, do not always associate with them for any good. Men should know that by marrying girls educated in habits of life abo\e their fortunes, they are not likely to have good wives A little sound sense will enable any man to see that it is better to have a wife grate ful for more than aire expected, than grumbling at less. It is delightful going op the hill of fortune, but horrible, jo'ting, aggravating worti, lo come down. Fur a man lo say he cannot afford to marry is absolute nonsense, if he is not afraid to work. It takes less to support two together than to support two separate !y. Union creates energy. Married men can earn more money than single ones, and expends less. For comparative hap piness of married life, we appeal to the experience of those who have tried both and to the observation of the unmarried. Mr. E. Brooks, of the New York Express, in one of his letters from Sweden, thus speaks of the soldiers of that country No where have 1 seen better or braver men, so far as one can form an opinion from appear ance. The soldiers of Sweeden com pure fa vorably with the picked men of the most mili tary of the European governments. I hey have great muscular strength, a good stature, and every way a fine appearance. The gov ernment is essentially military, and the dis cipline of the army most complete. A mtliia „ry king, who figured conspicuously for a time as next to Napoleon, is commander inchief of the troops. The Crown Prin«e has also a conspicuous command, and the sons of the Crown Prince all have military rank, and are educated to thiok the military eeivice ihe first and the best in the kingdom. 4 4 JJYO. jr. RVBBB L, AT TWO V O V it.i MS £JC AirjtVM TAKING THE CENSUS. ASCIKK IX ALABAMA. FAHT II, Our next adventure was decidedly a dan gerous one. Fording the Tallapoosa river where its bed is extremely uneven, being formed of masses of rock full of fissures, and covered with slimy green moss when about two thirds of the way across, we were hailed by Sol Todd from the bank we were approaching. We stopped to hear him more distinctly. Hellow little fefguire, yw a chicken hunting to-day We followed Sol's directions to the let ter, and plunging into the smooth water, we found it to be a basin surrounded with steep ledges of rock and deep enough to swim the horse we rode. Round and round the poor old black toiled without finding any place at which he could effect a landing, so precipitous were the sides. Sol occasionally asked us »if tjte bottom wa'nt first-rate,' but did nothing to help tis. At length we scrambled out, wet and chilled to the bone—for it was a sharp September morning—ami continued our journey not a little annoyed by the bois terous, roaring laughter of the said Solo mon, al our picturesque appearance. We had not more than got out of Sol's catchinatory explosions, before we met one of his neighbors who gave us to un derstand that the ducking w e had just re ceived, was but the fulfilment of a threat of Sol's, to make the chicken-man' take a 'swim in the 4 Sol, old fellow,' said we, that was a most unfortunate lunge I made in that hole in the river—I've lost $25 in specie out of my coat pocket, and I'm certain it's in that hole, for I felt my pocket get light while I was scuffling about in there. The money was tied up light in a buckskin pouch, and I mutt get you to help me to get it.' This, of course, was a age.' It took, however, pretty well, and Sol concluded, as it was a pretty cold spell of weather tor the season and the water was almost like ice, that half the contents of the buckskin pouch would be just about faiF for recovering it. After some chaffer ing we agreed that Sol should dive for the money, 4 BLOOMINGTON, IOWA, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1843. on shares,'and we went down with him to the river, to pointoutthe pre cise spot at which our pocket' grew light' We diil so with anxious exactness, anil Sol soon denuded himself and went under the water in the Buck Hole, like a shuff ler duck with his wing broke. Puff! puff! as he arose to the sutface. 4 as can be!' 4 4 y Being answered affirmatively, he con tinued—1 You better mind the holes in them ere rocks if your horse's foot gits ketched in 'em you'll nevet git it out. You see thai big black rock down to your righl Well, there's good bottom down below that. Strike down thar, outside that little riffle—and now cut right into that smooth water and come across.' 4 Buck Hole.' He had heard of our stopping on the opposite side of tire river, the night previous, and learn ing our intention to ford just where we did, fixed himself on ihe bank to ensure our finding the way into the Buck Hole. This information brought our nap right up, and requesting Bill Splawn lo slay where he was till we returned, we gallop ed back to Sol's, and found that worthy, rod on shoulder, ready to leave on a fishing excursion. 4 4 regular old-fash- ioned lie, as we had not teen the amount of cash mentioned as lost, in 4 a coon's 4 Got it Sol No, dang it, here goes again'—and Sol disappeared a second litne. Puff! puff! and considerable rattle of the teeth as Sol once more arose into upper air. 4 What luck old norse •By jings, 1 felt it that time, but some how it slid o'tl of my Au gers.' Down went Sol again, and up he came after the lapse of a minute, still with out the pouch. Are you right sure, Squire, that you lost it in this hole,' said Sol, gettfrtg out upon a large rock, while the chattering of his teeth divided his words into ralher more than their legiti mate number of syllables. 4 Oh perfectly certain Sol, perfectly certain. You know 825 in hard dollars weigh a pound or two. I did not mention the circumstance when I first came out of the river, because I was so scared and confused th&t 1 didn't re member it—Bull know just as well when the pouch broke through my coat pocket, Thus re-assured, Sol took the water a gain, and as we were in a hurry, we re* quested him to bring the pouch and half the money to Dadevilie, if his diving should prove successful. To be sure I will,' said he—aad his blue lips quivered with cold, and his whole frame shook from the same causc. The river age*' made Sol shake worse than that, that fall! But we left him diving for the pouch industriously, and no doubt he would have got it, if it had been there Once as we Were about to leave a house at which we had put up the night previous one of the girls a buxom lass of twenty followed us to the fence, and the follow rag tete-a-lcle ensued: Now squire they yoo know/and 4 /vV I want you to tell me, ef you please— 4rhat will chickens be worili tbia fall?' How many have you V 4 The rise of seventy, and three hens a sett in Well now Miss Betsy,' said we, 4 you know how much I set by the old man, your daddy—and the old lady, you know she and me always got along—and Jim and Dave you know we was always like brothers—and yourself, Miss Betsy. I con sider my particular friend—and as its you, I'll tell you Do squite, ef you please they say Van Buren's going to feed his big army on fowls and some folks say he is going to take 'em without payin' for 'em, and some say he aint—and I thought in course ef he did pay for 'em, iho price would rise.' Well, the fact is—but don't say noths ing about it—the army is to be fed on fowls the roosters will be given to the officers to make 'em brave, and the hens to the common soldiery because you see they aint as good.' 4 In course!' 4 So you see, the hens will be worth about three bits, and roosters half a dollar, and ready sale at that.' She was perfectly delighted, and we do not hesitate lo say, would have rewarded us with a kiss, if we had asked it but in those days modesty was the bright trait in otir character. As it was, she only insis ted on our taking a bit of something cold* in our saddle bags, in case we should reach town too late for dinner. Our next encounter was with an old la dy notorious in her neighborhood, for her garrulity and simple-mindedness. Her loquacity knew no bounds it was con slant, unremitting, interminable, and some times laughably silly. She was interest ed in quite a large Chancery suit which had been 4 dragging its slow length along' for several years, and furnished her with a conversational fund which she drew up on extensively, under the idea that its merits could never be sufficiently discuss ed. Having been warned of her propen sity, and being somewhat hurried when we called upon her, we were disposed to get through business as soon as possible, and without hearing her enumeration of the stjong points of her law case.

It's a mighty hard case, and ihe will ougtn't never to a been broke but————' Here we interposed and told the old la dy that our time was precious, and that we wished to lake down the number of her family, and the produce raised by her last year, and be off. Afier a good deal of trouble we got through with the des ciiptions of the members of her family, and the statistical table as far as the article cloih.' 4 How many yards of cotton cloth did you weave in 1840, ma'am?'
