Tt was a favorite maxim of Lord Dyron, taken from one of the classics, that "Whom the Ooda love die young." I cannot be a favorite with the Gods, for I had a 1 fair chance of being killed on Friday afternoon last, while riding with Mr. Dowdcn, a gentleman who reside in Washington city. The horse was frigh tenened, ran, and came in Market fctreet flying "like a etreak of lightening." Mr. tWden jumped out, and left me to run the race of the famoua John Qdpin alone, and I did run it in most exquisite style. I ahall now aing the race which I ran with Denth, and the gentle reader will perceive that I got ahead of Otto Motty, and outgcnerclled even Death himself. John Gilpin, Junior. Good citizen of Baltimore, Pray liaten to my ditty ; I aing the race John Gilpin run, Just inside of the city. Musing along the rugged road. Did John in silence ride ; Whrn lo ! he did look out and aaw Death trotting by hia aide. Halloo ! my friend, let me get in, Death aaid with language civil. His finger on hia nose, John aigli'J I'd see you lo the devil. You've tried to suck me in before, At many a time and place ; I date you now with me to run, And dare you to your face. Death, on hia pale horse, shook hi bone, And gave a ghastly grin; I'll run a race wilh you, he cried, And thought he'd suck John in. If in this matter I should lose. And you should win, I say, I ho, sir, a a gentleman. You'll take me for the pay. John put bis finger to hi nose, Hia mouth with quids well crsoi'd, You cannot take me in, he cried, If you do, I'll bed n'd. Away went Gilpin down the hill, Mo race was e'er ao hard ; Away, on hie pale horse, went death, '1 he buggy aud the Hard. Away hia hat Sew out behind, His papers aM wne gone ; Says Death, I'll catch you if you fill, I tkauk you, sir, eaid luhn. The people alt ran out to see, For toon ttie news waa spread ; And every ene cried out hurrah t For Grtptu was ahead.

A creditor, upon the road, Held out hi hand for pay ; 8aid John I'm aony I can't atop To talk with you to day. A lady from her window waved Her 'kerchief m hia view ; I'm sorry you can't call, she cried, Said John 1'rn sorry loo. Still onward in the race he went, The horse like lightning flew, The dogs howl'd out a wild hurrah I Cows low'd, and cat did mew. When at the end his steed did stop, Twa in a woful plight; The buggy broke, and In ! he look'd, And death was out of sight. Well, well, said death, you necd'nt fear In lite, a single evil ; I don't slid, John, for I can beat Death, doctor, and the devil. Good citizens, when next be ride, I'll let you know the place ; That you may all go out to see John Gilpin run a race. Miltobd Bias. tVeilira Gculua.

"It l a I'.wtghtful evening, and the last, too, tbl'i 1 ebu'.i spend in your pleasant village for the present, ao let u enjoy it." She made no reply, but placing her hand in mine permitted me to seat her in the boat. A few strokes of the oar and we gained the centre of the river. The dwelling of the Miese H waa situated a short distance below, and yielding our. selves to the current, we floated slowly down. Report had assigned to Mary W the un enviable reputation of a heartier coquette. The gossip would recount her almost numberless con qests, especially among the student of the neigh boring College. Many fascinated undergradu ate had thought mote of her than of his studies, and received for hi trouble a coquette's smiles and bis tutor's frowns. Mary was indeed beautiful, and full of that graceful light-heartedness, which more than even beauty bewitches one, but which ia so of ten, alas ! found united with heartless coquettery. At first I wasted to believe that what seemed the general opinion was true. But I soon thought o therwiae. I could not but believe that a form so lovely enshrined a heart a heart, too, susceptiblo of the purest and holieet pasaions that mortals know. My claaamate however, only smiled and ahook their head at what they called my infatuation But I had noted her action for oine time close ly, and in a measure unobserved. The moic I saw the more I wa convinced that Mary had yet to love, and that when she did, it would be with a fervor of which few are capable. Meantime our slight ac quaintance gradually became intimacy, and it waa said by the village gossips that I would soon be ad ded to the catalogue oi her victims. Thus the time parsed by until the period for my departure had arrived, and on leaving my room on the last evening of my atay, I determined to know if she waa the hearlleas being so generally considered, or if she waa capable of loving and being loved. For once her usual vivacity had deserted her, and our walk on thia evening was, unlike the many which preceeded it, alinoat a silent one. "We return by tile bridge, do we 1" ahe enqui red, as we left the Miaacs H ." "If you prefer it. The distance is conddable, however; perhaps h will I too fatiguing.

"A cousin of mine, and a pretty one too. "You correspond with her!" "Ye, and I hope to aee her eoon." "She is a lovely creature ; snch an one Aa poet love In dream of, artist paint," We had now reached tho grounds enclosing her father'a residence. Instead of taking the path di reel to the bouse, we had, unobaerved by me, taken one leading to a small arbor, where we had fie quently an hour in idle converse, or in reading some favorite author. "I am fatigued, let us reat a while," said Mary, as we reached it, We enterod. I observed on the seat a volume of Taaao'a Jerusalem which I had giv. en her. I took it up. Her glove was lying be tween the leaves opening to a particular passage a favorite of mine. Apparently without noticing it, I rfcired to the pages which I haJ been reading that day and then spoke if some publications which I had just receiveJ, offering to tend them to her for perusal during my abaence in vacation. "But you will call again before you leave! "I think not. My uncle's carriage will arrive in the moining, and we shall leave aa soon aa the cum mencement isovei. Bui you can call for a moment at least." "Do you wiab it!" She looked up reproachfully. A tear stood trem hling in her eye. My arm encircled her waist and gently diew her to me. Our li met ; the firat long kise of love waa given, and her bead sunk u- and piivate. pon my bosom. We breathed no vow, but that moment has long been lo me the holiest one in ine niory. I hear my wife's step approaching the library. "You are jut in time, Mary. Read thia . Have aketrbed it correctly V Yea but " "But what!" John Randolph of Roanoke. The following description of this remarkable per son we find In the National Intelligencer: His long thin legs, about as thick as a strong walking cane, and of much such ahape, were en cased in a pair of light small clothe.', o tight that they seemed part and parcel of the wearer. II md some while Blockings were fastened with great lidinoas at the knee by a email gold buckle, and o ver them, coming about half way up the calf, were a pair of what, I believe, are called hose, coarse and country knit. He wore shoe ; they were old fashioned, and fastened also with buckle huge ones, lie trod like an inuian, witnoui turning nia loea out, but plunking them down straight ahead. It waa the fashion in those day a to wear a fan-tailed coat, with a small collar, and bultona Tar apart lie hind, and few on the breaat. Mr. Randolph' were the reverse of all this, and, instead of hi coat being fan-tailed it waa what we believe the knight of the needle call swallow-tailed ; the collar was immensely large, the button behind were in kiss ing proximity, and they sat together as close on the breast of the garment as the feaater at a crowded public festival. His waist was remarkably elender ; ao slender, that, a be stood wilh his arms akimbo, he could eatily, aa I thought, with his long bony fingers, have spanned it. Around him hi coal, which waa very tight, wa held together by one button, and, in consequence, an inch or more of 1aie, to which it wa attached, waa perceptible where it waa pulled through the eloth. About hi neck he wore a large white cravat, in which hia chin wa occasionally buried as he moved his head in conversation ; no shirt collar was perceptible ; every other person seemed to pride himaelf on the aizo of his, a they were then worn large. Mr. Randolph's complexion waa precisely that of a mummy, withered, saffron, dry and blood- lens ; yet you could not have placed a pin' point on hi face without you would have touched a wrin kle ; hia lip were thin, compresaed and colorless ; (he chin, beVdlea as a boy', was broad for the sze of his face, which was aruall ; his nose was strait, with nothing rematkablo in it, except perhaps il wa too short. He wore a fur cap, which he took off, standing a few momenta uncovered. I observed that his head wa quite mall, a characteristic hieh is said to have matked many men of talent, Byron and Chief Justice Mar.ha'.l for inatance Judge Burnet of Cincinnati, who has been alike distinguished at the bar, on the bench, and in tho United State Senate, and whom I have heard no less a judge and possecsor of talent than Mr. Ham mond of the Gaze'te, say, was the clearest and most impressive speaker he ever heard, hat also a very small head. Mr. Randolph'a hair wa rem irka bly Cue fine as an infant's, and thin. It was very long, and wa parted with great care on the top of kis hesd, and waa lied behind with a hit of blaik ribband about three inche fiom his neck ; the whole of it formed a queue not thicker than the lit tle finger of a delicate gi 1. His forehead was low, but no bumpology about it ; but hi eye, though sunken, waa moat brilliant and startling in its glance. It waa not an eye of profound, but impassioned thought, wilh an expresion at 'limea such asphy iciana describe to be that of insanity, but an in sanity which acemed to quicken, not to destroy in tellectuul Biuteneia. I never beheld an eye that struck roe more : it poseaaed a species of fuciiia lion auch as would make you wondor over the character of il poaaeaaor, without finding any clue in your wonderment to diacover it, except ttwt he wa paaiiioiiate, wayward and fearleea. He lifted hia long bony finger impietaively aa he conversed. and gesticulated wilh it in a peculiar manner Ilia whole appearance (truck me, and I could ea sily imagine how, with his great command of Ian guage, so appropriate and full, so brilliant and claaai cal, joined to the vast information that hia diacur aive oratory enabled him lo exhibit in its fullest ex tent, from the storehouse of which the vividness of bia imagination waa always pointing out a hap py analogy or bitter sarcisin, that alar. led the more from the fact that hia hearers diJ not perceive it un til the look, lone and linger brought it down wit the suddenness of lightning, and with il effect, upon the head ol hia adversary ; taking all this in to consideration, I could eaaily Imagine buw, when almost a boy, he won ao much fame, pieaerved it so long and wilh ao vast an influence, notwithtta.idin the eccentricity and inconsistency of hi life, public Brady's Adventure.

The appoint ment was accepted, and selecting a few soldiers and four Chickasaw Indians as guides, he crossed the Allegheny river, and was at once in the enemy s coun- trv. It was May, 1780, that he commen ced his march : the season was uncom monly wet. Every considerable stream was swollen; neither road, bridge, nor house, facilitated their march, nor shiel ded their repose. Part of their provi sions were picked up by the way, as they crept rather than marched through the wilderness by night, and lay con cealed in its brambles by day.

Brady was ver sed in all the wiles of Indian 'stratagic,' and dressed in the full war dress of an Indian warrior, and well acquainted with their languages, he led his band in safety near to the Sandusky towns, without seeing a hostile Indian The night before ho reached Sandus ky, he saw a fire, approached it, and fou.id two squaws reposing before it He passed on without molesting them.

After going a short distance, the path made a bend, and he saw belore him a large Indian on horseback, with a child be fore and its mother behind him on the horse, and a number of warriors march ing in the rear. His first impulse was to shoot the Indian on horseback, but as he raised the rifle, he observed the child's head roll with the motion of the horse. It was fast asleep, and tied to the Indian. He stepped behind the root of a tree, and wailed until he could shoot the Indian without danger to the child or its mother. When he considered the chance cer tain, he shot the Indian, who fell from the horse, and the child and its mother fell with him. Brady called to his men with a voice that made the forest ring, to surround the Indians and give them a general fire. Ho sprung to the fallen Indian's powder horn, but could not pull it off.

The effect of lime in decomposing vegetable matter is weil known. Near the last of "fhe 8th month, (Au gust,) fifty bushels of lime to the acre were spread over a clover Field almost run out, trom which a tirst crop ol grass had been taken at the usual time. The second crop grew tolerable well, atxl was ploughed down with the lime, pre paratory to seeding with winter grain. M the interval ot lour or hv'e vficka the ground was crossed ploughed, and the vegetable mass of grass, weeds and roots, found to be almost pulverized, and incorporated with the soil. Tt is customary with many farmers in this vicinity, to apply a handful of ground plaster to each hill of Indian corn, after it appears a few inches a bove ground. A small portion of tho corn field thus treated, was last spring reserved lor an 'experiment, with the same quantity of powdered or fine lime, applied in like manner. The result has been in favor of tho lime, both the stock and ear of the corn, being much superior to the average production oT the field. Farmer't Cabinet. A Olu Sraeaa.

A Terrible Deed In illustrating the desperate condition to w hich the lower classes in England arc reduced through grinding poverty, the London correspondent of the Bos ton Post relates tho following occur rence, the bare perusal of which makes the blood run cold ; he snys, however, that it is too well authenticated to be doubted: "It appears that there arc "Philan- thropic Burial Societies, in many towns in England, which pay certain sums to members fir the funeral expenses of a deceased child. One of the rules of "The Stockport Burial Society" is that each member shall pay a penny per week, and at the end of seventeen weeks' subscription become full mem bers. If a child after that period dies. the parents are entitled to the sum of three pounds and twelve shillings ; and deducting one shilling and sixpence for the collector's fee, and two shillings " or liquor," the sum of three pounds eight and sixpence remains for the fu neral expenses of the child. At the Chester Assizes, two married couples, whose average ages were only twenty six, were indicted. Their names wero Sandys and one couple were charged with having ndminstered arsenic to the child, by which they murdered it, and the others were charged w ith being ac cessories to the crimo boforo and after the fact. The deceased, with whose murder they were accused, was thus awfully killed for the diabolical purpose t.f obtaining the sum of throa itoiinds t:ight and sixpence from thu j Stockist Buriul Society !"
