O, though oft depressed and lonely,4 All my fears arc laid aside, If I but remember only, Such as thee have lived artfldte'd! The Head and the Heart• FROM THE GERMAN. The head and the heart are things wliirh ilie world more frequently talks a hout than knows—two precious jewel?, which iln-y who possess them speak little of just as every sensible rich man avoids ?peiking of liis riches. If we consider the head and the heart attentivyly, we *hnll be led to wew the former as a man, and the latter as a woman. The head, like si man, is domineering and iiiipntieni the heart, like a woman, is lender and kind. When two heads an me into 'con tact, a violent concussion generally ensues immediately when, however, two hearts meet, in a minnie they may be seen whis pering together with female confidence. The Head is a man, and therefore cal» dilates the course of exchange asd the motions of the planets—peeps into^ com mittees and cabinets, unfolds financial op erations, and plans battles the heart weaves love-knots, and lays the founda tion of inatriajoiiial alliances, for is a Masculine indulgence sometime® grants the head its hours of rest rite heart on the contrary, is continually in disquiet, for il is a woman. The head, like a man, seeks its happi ncas in possessing the heart, like a wo man, is happy only when if t$tn iffomftiu* nicate wliai it possesses. Hl, Man, the head, endeavors to meditate on God. Mid halls in his presumptuous efforts woman, ihe heart,feels God, and this feeling gives her peace and happi ness. When a head gets into company with heads of inferior rank, if i*- be'very cour teous, it will, with true manly condesen sion, lower itself lo ihem, and the offend ed heads, therefore, secretly hate it the female lender heart, on ihe contrary, rais es inferior hearts to itself, and for this kindliness reaps gratitude and love. The head condemns, the heart excuses the head revenges, the heart forgives the head is ingenious, ihe heart is felling the head wounds, the heart feels the head conquers, the heart captivates ihe head therefore is a man, and the heart a wo* man. We would carry this comparison •till farther, and say, head and h^art are husband and wife, for head and heart, as we have just seen, are always of different opinions. The head, like my lord hus band, blusters and commands the heart lets it speak, like my lady wife. My. lord head makes his approach with a graeeful bow my lady Heart storms us with sweet glances and tender words. The head, according to the custom of reckless husbands, has recourse to the heart only when the world has sowered and sickened it, and rushes again into the inmult of life, tingreaifu! as a husbanjl, as soon as the heart has tenderly wpoothetf the furrows which chagrin had plowed on his brow. When head and heart happen to dis pute. tue heart as the wife, has common* ly the last word, and on such occasions the head displays a gallantry which other husbands are deficient of—it i* silent when the heart becomes clamerous. If Mr. Bead tfrthlmvl Mrt. HewVil makes but an unhappy union i but the inost miserable household of all this*. \vhen Mr. Head is ment. under petticoat govern u If Mr. Head become bankrupt, tea to one but it is Mrs. Heart's /ault. But too often head aod heart live to gether like fashionable pair of the pres ent day—where the one is too be found, we may be almost certain not lo find the other. The head, as husband, is the first to •hold hist ongue when he is right the heart, as wile, cries the loudest when she is most in the wrong. Hut 1 begin to perceive that I have be frayed a number of the secrets of my lord head and my lady heart and who linows but 1 had done better to save my celf the trouble, for I am convinced, that independently of this, neither are strange ieither to my male or female readers. From the Pittsburgh Chronicle. THE RIVALS "t'w Or, the Ucacrler no Mieaerter• Jwnes Clarkeand George Moore in their youth were surrounded by similar advan tages, being blest with kind aud indulgent parents, who spared neither time nor mon ey to prepare their children for happiness imd usefulness. James grew up to be an amiable and inielligeni young man, poss essing the esteem of all who knew hiin, Avhile George Moore was quite the re verse, proud and ambitious iu hid disposi tion. James Clarke had jtist entered hit 22d jVear when he became acquainted with the ^beautiful Lucy Wilton. Their attachment, which commenced in friendship, ended in ^Clarke making an avowal of love, and the ^offi of hi* hand, which was accepted.— Their nuptials were to lake phce in three months, on Lucy's eighteenth birth day. Previous lo this period. George Moore had become a frequent visitor at Air. Wilton's jfiud being aware of Clarke's atten'.i»ns to Lucy, endeavored to supplant hiin in her "affection!? failing in this he smothered his feelings, but cherished a 6ecret enmity to his rival. The discovery of Arnold's treason, a bout this time, induced Clarke to start im medi ilely for the American camp, with letter of recommendation to Major Lee, who was so pleased with his noble ap pearance, that in a short lime he present ed htm with a sergeant's commission.— The aspiring and ambitious disposition of Moore led him to enlist at nearly the same period with Clarke our rivals by this means were again brought together* Early one evening Clarke was sent for by Lee, who informed him lint Washing ton, in order to save Andre, was desirous of arresting Arnold. He then communi cated ihe plan for ihe accomplishment of this object, tlie whole of which was to re» main a secret fur the present. Clarke was to de?-ert, to escape lo New York lo watch the movements of Arnold, and up on some fit opportunity, with the assist ance of one whom he could trust lo seize and conduct him 10 a certain place on the IJUU9U(at UtIU a UUtll I U U K I W«. ness lo bear thein away. Clarke despi sing in his heart any thing like decepiiin, at first objected, but was at length over ruled by Lee, who urged the necessity of such a course, and promised to secure his honor, whatever might be the re*ult of ihe adventure. Clarke desired ihe execution of ihe plan lo be postponed for several days lo make preparations but Lee being urgent and fearful of delay lie prepared for the undertaking immediately. At mid night Lee was aroused by Captain Carnes who stated that a horseman had been seen to leave the camp apparently in great haste. Lee affected to treat the matter lightly, and said il should be looked to in the morning. The Captain suspecting something wrong, ordered outhis cori on examination, Clarke was found to be ab sent sending o party in persuit, of which Moore was one, he returned and informed Lee of the fad. begging the Major's writ ten orders. After making as much delay as he possibly could, Lee gave orders to lake Clarke alive that he might suffer in the presence of his fellow soldiers, or if he resisted and attempted to escape to kill him. During the night the pursuing dragoons were often delayed by the necessary halts to examine the roads but when day-light appered, the impressions of ihe horse's shoes, which were of a petuliar kind, were so plain that they pushed forward with rapidity. Clarke was within a few miles of New York, ascending hill on the opposite side of ihe Hudson when he was descried by his pursuers fortunately lie discovered th*m ai ihe same time. Sus pecting their purpose, he put spurs lo horse taking a different road, hoping there by to elude the pursuit, but on approach ing the river he was again descried. The dragoons were within a short distance of Clarke when he sprang from his horse and plunged into the river calling upon some British galleys lhat were near, for help.— A boat instantly despatched to his assist ance, and a fire commenced upon the pur suers, who were compeHed lo return, dis appointed and chagrined at their ill sac- *.?W 1 »r* tjw^vr|r BLOOMINGTON, IOWA, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 1844. WHOLE NO. 201. George Moore although disappointed in the capture of Clarke determined to profit by his flight. Having obtained Ipave of absence for a weeWie repaired lo Mr. Wilton's and informed them of C.'s desertion. Lucy turned pale at the intel ligence. and retiring to her chariaber burst into a flood of tears, Ah me cripd she, forsaken by the only one whom I could love. Can it be possible lhat he could he so cruel as to crush my young heart's warmest affection by such baseness. Oh no he could not prove unworthy of the confidence I placed in him.1, Mr. Wilton was astonished and confounded at the con duct of Clarke, and regretted it deeply hut more especially on account of his daughter the bloom having left her cheek sinci ihe flight of her lover. We now return lo Clarke, who being taktn on board the boat despatched to his ass/stance, was soon sent .to New York, uiili a letter from the captain of the gaU ley stating all he knew with respect to his case. After being examined bv Sir Hen ry Clinton he was recommended to Ar nold, under whose command he was en rolled. Clarke failed in the abduction of Arnold in consequence of his removal lo another part of tlie town and being himself ship ped on board a liritish vesse', was unable to make his escape until after the junction of Arnold with Lord Cornwallis ia Vir ginii. At ihe expiration of ten days from the time Clarke had deserted, Lucy recived ihe following anonymous letter. Dear -, I regret ihe unhappiness ©y conduct has occasioned you. If it were safe 1 would now explain, but I dare not. My attachment remains unshaken. Forget-me not. Yours. Tongue cannot express the thrill ef joy that rushed through ihe heart of Lucy, when she read the above, of Clarke's in nocense, site was fully satisfied. The letter, though short was full of meaning it gave comfort to her heart and restore the bloom lo her cheek but in a short time she was made to drink of the cup of bitterness lo ihe very dregs. One evening Lucy was sitting on ihe piazza contemplating the beauty of the surrounding scenery, when George Moore roJe up, dismounted, and without further ceremony seated himself, directly inform in£ her that a peison had been arrested three days before for desertion and shot from the description he believed Clarke to be the person. The agony of Lucy at tliis information cannot be desbribed she was thrown upon a bed of sickness, and for three weeks her life was despaired of, hut at the end of that time she began to receiver. None appeared more happy and delighted at the convalescence of Lucy than Moore. He declared that it was the happiest period of his whole life. His conduct was such during her illness that she lell less inclined to treat hiin with coldness than formerly. The cloud which overspread the mind of Lucy, and, threatened to denrive her of at ilie intelligence of Clarke s death, wa9 gradually dispelled, through the recollection of his disgraceful end, of ten occasioned her moments of bitterness. As Mr. Willon and his family were a boui miring to rest one night, a sudden and loud knocking at ihe door startled them on opening it, in rushed James Clarke bleeding and almost breathless.-— Lucy was so taken by surprise, that for a moment she remained motionless, then springing to his side was instantly clasped in his embrace. What, what means this,' said Mr. Willon, 'what means all this,' looking sternly at Clarke, how dare you come here Have patience,' cried Lucy, anil all will be explained, he was no deserter.' 4 41 No,' replied Clarke, was, in truth, no deserter.' Mr. Wil ton's feelings being somewhat calmed by this avowal, he proceeded lo examine Clarke's wound, when it was found that a pistol ball had passed through the fleshy part of the left arm, grazing his cheek in its course. Having studied surgery in his youth, Mr. Willon was enabled lo dress the wounds of Clarke, who had recovered sufficiently by ihis lime to relate his ad venture. As he was passing through a piece of dark woods about five miles dis tant, hearing a slight noise, he t'rew a pis tol, when a man sprang from behind a iree and fired at him Clarke's fiistol explo ding at the same instant, the in stagger ed and fell, but in the acl of falling fired again wotindig Clarke's horse which start ed off at full speed and soon catried him beyond the reach of further harm* In the morning Clarke gave a detailed account of his apparent desertion, the ob ject of it, his ill success and finally his es cape from the British. At this moment a hustle at the door directed their attention thither, when in stepped a rough looking farmer and demanded if Mr. Wi ton lived there, being answered in Ihe affirmative, he said, Well I guess you'd better be in a hurry, for lie's most dead.' Who is 'most dead,' said Mr. Wilton with alarm and surprise. *_Why the soldier I picked ap in the road a considerable distance from this I guess.* Mr. Wilton and Claike i* *i rAvVCE&jpo vm rum «f rx*£ ri ji. huriied to the door, and to their astonish ment, beheld in the farmer's wagon Geo. Moore, bloody and apparently in the ago nies of death he motioned for Clarke to approach. I he. have not long 4 but before to I live,' said die, tell me that I have your forgiveness.* He theft confessed his love for Lucy—how he had endeavored to supplant Clarke in her affections—and lasiely the effort he had made lo take his life. Moore, had scarcely finished his confession when, wiih one convulsive shudder, he attempted to rise and fell back a ghastly corpse. It appeared from Moore's confession,that he had learned in conversation with Lu*y. that she believed Clarke to be innocent, notwithstanding appearances were agaiusi him and so long as she entertained this opinion, he thought there would be little hope of gaining her love. He therefore fabricated the tale of a soldier answering ihe description of Clarke, being laken and shot for desertion, hoping by lhat means to remove the great barrier to a successful termination of his suit. The unexpected arrival of Clarke in the American camp ihe explanation made by Lee in regard to his conduct—the applause heaped upon him by his fellow soldiers, and the iho'is of losing Lucy, all combined drove him almost to madness. He therefore came to the determination to take the life of his rival. Disguising his real feelings, he ask ed Clarke with an air of friendship when he intended to visit his old friend Mr Wilton. Clarke replied that he was re solved to see them lhat night. This infor mation revived the hopes of Moore, he knew ilia' darkness \yould overtake Clarke thereby affording him a good opportunity to carry his bloody design inio execution without being delected. Obtaining leave of absence, as he said to go and see a dy ing sis'.er he, by taking a cross road, got in the advance of Clarke, and when within a few miles of \!r. Wilton's, the trees by the roail side being very dense he conceal ed himself and waited impatiently for the approach of his intended victim. With the result of the rencontre ihe reader is alrea dy acquainted. We pass over a period of two months, during which lime James Clarke entirely recovered of his wound, and got an honor able discharge from the Commander-in chief, who was fearful lhat he would fall into ihe hands of the enemy and be treat ed as a spy. James Clarke and Lucy Wilton were soon after unity, and lived happily in each others society, until death severed the tie which bound thein together. ln M. W. J. I^lie happiest silly fellow ever Mtnew, was of ihe number of those good natured creatures lhat are said to do no harm to any but themselves. Whenever he fell into any misery, he usually called it seeing life. If his fiead wa* broke by a chair man, or his pocket picked by a sharper, he comforted himself by imitating the Hi bernian dialect of the one, or the more fashionable cant of the oilier. Nothing came am"* him. His inattention lo matters had incensed his father to such a degree, that all the intercession of friends in his favor was fruitless. The old gentleman was on his death bed. The whole family, and Dick among the num ber, gathered round him. 4 I leave my second son Andrew,' said the expiring miser rny whole estate, and desire hiin to be frugal,' Andrew in a sorrowing tone, as is usual on lliese occasions, prayed Heaven to prolong his life and health to enjoy it himself. 4 1 tecommend Simon, my third son, to the care of his elder bro ther, and leave hiin besides four thousand pounds.' 4 Ah father,' cried Simon, in great affliction to be sure, 4 may Heaven give you life and health to enjoy it you* self!' At last turning to poor Dick, As for you, you have always been a sad dog you'll never come to good you'll never be rich I'll leave you a shilling to buy a halter.' Ah father,' cries Dick, with out any emotion, 4 may Heaven give you health lo enjoy it yourself!' 'fhisjyas all the trouble the loss of fortune gave this thoughtless, imprudent creature. How ever, the lendernesn of an uncle recom pensed ihe neglect of a father and my friend is now not only excessively good humored, but competently rich.

DEAB Sin: It becomes my duty to IN? form you lhat on Saturday evening I was sent for by Sleepy-Eyes, a Dacotah chief, whose camp is now at Swan Lake, about twenty miles distant from this place, to see an American who had come to them in very distressed circumstances. I found the young man reduced to the shadow ofc a man by famine, and brought him home with me this morning. His mame, ha says, is Notley Bennett. Some eight w?eks, or more, sinc.e, he says, he and two other young men, started with a Mr. Ttiriwr, of Olnc^our, Miwattti, to Msis|^^ in bringing a drove of 104 cattle to thf garrison, of which you have ihe commaud. He says they crossed the St. Peters river, between this and Dettit Rochelle, think* ing it to be Turkey river, and pursued a north-west course until thirteen days ago, when tney were met by a party of Daco~ tah Indians, who, it seems, were out on a War expedition, from Lake Traverse.— The result of this meeting was, that they look from ihem their horses, guns, money and clothing, to shirts and drawers, vest and hat killed one and beat the remain* der. They killed also a number of cattle —Bennett thinks nine—the remainder were scattered abroad-Indians then mount ed the horses of iheir prisoners and slain, and taking one of the young men, wen* to briug back the c%lile, but they did not succeed—the young man being permitted lo make his escape. They then sent the said Bennett and Turner, on horseback* after the cattle, who soon left their horses as unable to travell, and made their es» cape by the way which they had gone.—• Bennett says he traveled with Turner days* when they met at a stream whick was too deep to wade they were then both weak, having eat nothing for three days Turner could not swim—Bennett attempted to swim with him on his back, but cuuld not succeed, and Turner, the owner pf the caule was drowned— Bennett came out alive. Two evening)*, before this, he had seen the cattle not faij^ from ihe trail made when going, evident ly coming this way. This was two daypf after iliey had made their escape from thjik Indians. Turner was drowned four dayi| after that event. Alter he left Turned Bennett traveled five or six days, and ihe|| came in sight of the Indian lodges of Sle^f. py-eyes and others. He hesitatrd wheiltfc er to go to them ot not, but concluded $t was ouly death if he went not—he ityy(Pl shortly die of famine and if he went hMV supposed they would kill him. Hechost ihe latier. But they received and treated him after the manner of the good Samaria lan of the great teacher. They did onljt what wasMheir duty to do but gold met!' als have been, latterly, given by the Quee$, of England, in circumstances, where ihey were not more deserved than in the pref ent. But what will the United States Gov ernment do with Indians who commit such outrages They say they thougltl ihey were Red river people. But thetjp could not have had any conviction of iliU kind. Bennett says ihey were with their probably as much as three hours befoip they killed ihe man. In the mean t:m|# they were lold by signs, and a map of tlie country, where ihey were from and where ihey had wished to go. It seems lo me that the Garrison, which is kept up at no small hxpence to the gov ernment, ought to be able to do some thing ill this case, which will have a ten dency to protect lives and property in fu ture. As it respects the cattle, your coi^ nexion with ihem is only a pecuniary afl fair, and perhaps, none at all.
