Ave Maria ! ble-eed le tbe hour,
The time, the clime, the spot, wiiere I ao oft
Have felt th tt moment in ita fullral powei
Sink o'er tlie earth, ao beautiful ami soft."
Not ih fair Qreecc, that blight and favored dime,
Where rose Olympus home of Gode sublime ;
Where Sol hia golden aplrndor richly gave.
To duck the earth, and gilJ the ..Ear an wave;
Where all of grandeur, glory, and of art,
Mingled, their richest beauties to impart;
Could softer tint, more gorgcoua huea be given,
Than glow in ihia fair acene, and yon bright heaven 1
What though no classic lore haa hsllow'd here
Thia Western land, ao beautiful, and dear ;
Nor modern banl, inimnrtal numbers mng,
Nor o'er each spot such deep enchantment flung,
Ita native tpkmhirs, thrill the inmost aout.
And oVr the spirit shid their sweet control.
Oh ! fr a ray of g nius from above !
To speak ihe ruptures, in the soul thai move,
While gazing fr -m this eminence I view
The atnkiag aun, the mountain's purple hue,
The broail and noble 8uquchann's tide,
Now rolling silv'ry through ihe valley wide;
The rich au umnal tints, that clothe each bill,
That rents in meetly, ao culm, ao still,
While d.ep'ning twilight inks upon the earth,
And in the vault l Heavn, the stars come forth
'T II fioui yon testcrn height, the moon, fair queen,
Casts tu t pule mantle o'er the magic acene.
And filling glories, sadly, sweetly te.l,
That eve has come, and day lia add farewell.
tt It-at tceues ot Nature, in this holy hour,
Ye come upon the heart, with thrilling power.
And lift the soul beyond the glowing sky,
To bold communion with its God on high.

ORIGIN OF THE WHITE, RED AND
, A Seminole Tradition.
When the Florid as were erected inlo a territory
of the United Stale, one of Ihe earliest carve of the
Governor, William P. Dutai, a directed to
the intrucion and civiliaitton of the native. For
thia purpose he called a meeting of the chiefs, in
which he informed them of the wish of their Great
Father at Washington that they should have
schools and teacher Among them, and lint their
children should be instructed like the chi dren of
white men. The chiefs listened with their custom
ary silence and decoium to a long speech setting
foith the advantage that would accrue to them
from Ihi measure, and, when he had concluded,
begged ihe interval of a day to deliberate on it.
On ihe following day, a eolemn convocat on waa
held, at which one of the chiefs addressed the gov
ernor in the nam of all the rest : M My brother,"
said he, we have been thinking ov.r the prop ai
tion of ourcat Father at Washington, to send
tenchera and set up schools among us. We are
very thankful for the inter, at he takea in our wel
fare; hut after much deliberation, have concluded
to decline hia t.ffor. What will do voiy well for
white men, will not do for red men. I know you
white men aay we all come from the same father
and mother, but you are mist ken. W.e have a
li edition birld doVn from our forefathers, and we
believe it, that the Great Spir t, when he Undertook
to make men, made the black man ; it waa hia first
attempt, and pretty well for beginning but he
aoon aaw he had bungled ; n he determined to try
hia hand again. He did a, and ma le the red man.
He liked him much better than the black man, but
stilt he was not eiactly what he wanted. Then
he tried once more, and made the white man; and
then he waa satisfied. You aee, therefore, that you
were made last, and that i tbe reason I call you
my youngest biother. .
M When the Great Spirit had made the three men
he called them together and showed them three
boie. Tbe first waa filled wt'h hooks, and maps,
and pspers; the second with bows and arrowa.
knives and toraibawks; the third with spades, axes,
hoe and hammer. These, my Bon. sai 1- he,
are the means by which you are to live ; choose
among them accordine to your fancy.'
'The white min, being the favorite, had the first
choice. He passed bv the box of working loots
without notire ; but when he came to the weapons
for war and hunting, he slopied and looked hard
at them. T he red man trrmMcJ. fur he had set hia
heart upon that boi. The w'dte nan, however,
after looking upon it for a moment, paaed oh, and
choose the box of books and paper. The ted man's
turn rame next ; and yoa may l e aure he aeixed
with joy upon the bows and arrowa, and loms-
hnwks. As lo the black man, he had no choice
left, bul to put Up with ihe box of tools.
" From thia it is clear that the Great 8ptiit in
tended that the while man should leam lo re id and
write; t undera and all about the moon and alara
and to make every thing, even ruin nd whiskey.
That the red man should he a first rate hunter and
a toighly warrior, but he waa not lo learn anything
from hooka, aa the Great .pint ha I not given htm
any : nor aa he to make rum and whiskey, lest be
should kill himseif with drinking. Aa to the I lack
mm, as he had nothing but working tools, M waa
clear he waa to work for the white and red man,
which he ha continued to do.
We must go according to tbe wiahea of lha
Great Spirit, or we shall gel inlo trouble. To know
how to read and wiite, is very good for while men,
hut very bad for red men. It makes white men
better, but red men worse ; aome of the Creeks and
Cbefokrea learnt lo read and write, and they are the
greatest ratcils among all the Indiana. They went
on to Wabington, and said they weie gjing lo see
their Great Father, to talk about tbe good of the na
tion. And when they got there, they all wrote
upon a little piece of paper, without the nation at
home knowing anything about it And the first
thing the nation at home knew of the mailer, tl.ey
were called together by Ihe Indian agent who
showed them a little piece of paper, which he lo'd
them waa a treaty, which their brethren had made
in their name, with theii Ore it Father at Washing
ton. And aa they kni w not what a treaty waa, be
held up the little piece of paper, and they looked
under it, and lo! it covered a great extent of coun
try, and ihey found that iheii brethren, by knowing
how lo read and write, had sold their house, and
their lands, and lha grave of their father ; and
that the white man, by knowing how to trad end
write, bad gained ihsm 'IVB our Great Fa her at
Wahingion, therefore, that we are very orry we
cannot receive leacbera among us j for reaarmg and
writing, though very good tot white men, ia very
bad for Indians."

PicCiiiiLLt, July 17th, 1840.
Mr Dim Siat I had not returned from the
country at the time your meeting was held, to which
you were so kind as to invite me. Thi will ac
count for my silence, and I am sorry that the presa
of affiira on ma at this moment, should interfere
wiih my contributing my mite for the African race,
in case I houkI not meet you before leaving Lon
don. I shall commit the following facts to paper.
all of which are from my own obseivation relative
to the American Colony of Liberia, in which you
are ao much intmated, and justly ao. My opin
ion, though not of much value, is, thai it promise
to be the only successful institution of the sort on
ihe coeet of Africa, keeping in mind ita objects,
namely, that of raising the African alave into a freo
man, preparing Tor the exercise of civil liberty in its
vsrious branches from the Governor to the laborer,
the extinction of the slave trade, and last, though
not least, the teligioua and moral improvement of
Africa at large. First, then, from the carriage and
conversation of the emancipated slave, you perceive
that at once he feels himself a free man. They one
and all told me, they were men now, which they
never were before, and had a prospect foi their chit.
dren, not in Ihe least regretting their departure from
America, on the contrary, desirous ofgotting their
relations over to j' in them. 2. The affairs of the
col n.y are conducted, with tbe exception of the
Governor, entirely by colored men, chiefly by liber
ated alivca; and Mr. Buchanan, a moat able and
xcalous friend of the African, sssuird me that tbeii
judicial administration would do credit to any elate
in America, nd that Ihey were moat reasonable in
a'l their propositions and d bates in their House of
Assembly. They are all quite aware that nothing
but industry can conduce to their wealth and com.
fort, and practice it. Even the Africana captured
and watched by the American Government, have
followed tbe example set by the eolonUU, for when
I vi.iled them about 3 P. M., the hottaart pail of tha
day, I found them all at work on their farms. 3
No one in the remotest degree connected with the
sieve trade ia allowed ever to communicate with Li
berie, muuch less trade, and fioin a little affair wiib
myself and occular proofs, ihey are alwaya ready to
join in any expedition for the destruction of al.v
factories. 4. They are preparing Missionaries from
amongat themselves, and have attempted it on a
small scale, but with what success I am not ready
to say, not haing had an opportunity of personal
inspection, but their schools do them credit, more tt
peeially when their means are considered.
The colonists, with low exceptions, are all mem
here of churches, and I can most safely testify tha
a more orderly, sober set of people I never met with
I did not hrai an improper or profane espiesMon
during my vikit. Spiiila are excluded in moat
not all the settlements. They have formed them-
-Ivea into varioua societies, such as agricultural,
b 'tanical, mechanical, for promoting christian know
ledge, also a Ladies' aoriety for clothing the poor,
tfc. The aurrounding Africana are aware of the
nature of the colony, t .king refuge when persecu
led by ihe few neighboring slave traders. Th
remnants of s tribe have lately fled and aettled in
the colony on lands granted ibem. Between my
two visits, a lapse of only a few days, four or five
alavca Bought refuge from their master, who Waa
about, or had sold them to lbs only factory on that
part of ihe coast. The native chief in ihe neigh
borhood have that respect for tha colonists, that
they bate made treaties for the abolition of tbe
alave trade, aa also constituted the Governor Judge
iu the diaputea smongbt themaelvea, and a rsmarka.
ble instance had occuned only a ft days previous
to my visit. One chief submitted lo the arbitration
of Mr Buchan n, though contrary lo hia own iJei
of right and justice, and paid ihe fine imposed upon
i coulJ aay much more, but my lime Joes not ad
mit, and I must conclude this rambling and bur
ri d account of my visit to Liberia, with thia obser
vation, that I went there unbiassed, and left it with
a conviction, that colonies on the principle of Libe
ria ought to be established aa aoon as possible, i
we wuh lo aavs Afiica, and lbs materia,! for such
colonies, ( think, can only be procured fom alavea
in the United States. I am not disposed, from
what I have seen and known of our Imlia blacks,
to select thttin for the great work, if for no other
icaeon, lha Amu lean black apeak pure English.
Excuse thia hasty production with its faults, bul
rather than break my word, I aend you this, and

Antltraclte Iron. ,
't'he nronrittlnra nf lha Crnlon work in New
Jetsey, have receutly discovered the mode of t- fin-1
ing Iron with Anthracite Coal, and have made an
experiment wiih several tons pig mcUl, obtained at
the Crane works, in which the whole process from .
the or to the bar, haa been effected with Anthra
cite Coal, to the refining procem, th result a
aaving of about 30 per cent., notwithstanding th
coat of the eeal war about $1 26 par Ion. The
loaa of weight in the firat proceer w.is Rout two
tliiida, and in the aecond about three-fourtha kt$
than in the ordinary mode with charcoal. Thia
fact, with the exce'lent quality of the Imn, proves
the superiority of tbe fuel, snd xlso establishes the
fact, that the coal region ia Ihe place wheie the
smelling and refining can be catried on to the grea
test advantage. To miirb the ore, cost sboul $1
per lon, snd the coal, in Borne l.caliohak would not
exceed 75 cent. But the proprietor of the Dan
ville woika, having made . the discovery, they have
determined upon constructing their rcfineiy in the j
&e! region, and from the abundance of ore that is
found alongside of the coal, it will not be long lc
fore the entire istablishments for smelting and re
fining, will be found st tbe mouth of the mines.
All coriect. The coal rcgina where the ore and
coal is found lying contiguous, is tbe only proper
plais foi the l.cati,,n of extensive iron wo ka. Af
ter the ore ia converteJ into pig metal, there ia no
more ore required in manufacturing iron but it
will rrquiro at least three tone of coal to convert pig
metal into a ton of good bar iron. Here the Fur
nace, Refinery, Rolling Mill, and Factory for work
ing up the m tal into ell the various purposes for
which ilia required, can be located at ihe mouth of
a drift, fiom which the ore and coal can be tun
into the tunnel head of th Furnace, refined and
mmufacturrd on the spot, without any transporta
tion, except transporting the manufactured article
to a market, which can be done throughout the
wh le year by means of the Canal or Rail Road.

A Shark Story.
Aa an offt to the ship news given a few ka
since, fiom the bow la of John 8hark,lhe New Or
leans Picayune tells the following story :
Once upon a time, when the packet ship Corio
lanua waa returning from Liverpool to New Voik,
the carpenter, a very worthy man, wss taken sick,
snd after a brief illness, expired on shipboard. He
had an intoreating son, whn waa hia assistant as
ship carpenter, and the boy loved his fa'hor with
the moat tender and filial afTection, The poor
youth's heart was almost broken at the lots of hia
parent, and no persuasion coulJ induce him to
leave the body.
The usual preparations for a funeral at aea were
mado ; the poor carpenter waa mwoJ up in hia
winding sheet, and wiih htm waa put an old grind
atone, hatchet and chisel, to carry him down to I.U
long rest in the ocean. The poor boy grew Irantic
when hia father waa about to bj committed to the
waves, and was obliged lo b. held off by lha Bailors.
At lenglh, just aa the fatal lurch of the ve;el waa
taking place, thoboy with the a length of a maniac,
broke from the sailors and dashed himself upon the
body at the very moment it Waa si ding over the
ship's side. Il waa too late lo save b in. vnd ding
ing wildly to the dead body of his father, Ihe hap.
les boy was seen to make one swill plunge, and
disappear forever down, down into the eternal ca
verns of the mighty ocean.
