Bamsn EXPERIME.-"Mny;years since an
enterprising Englishman--Dr. Turabull-be
coming impressed with the -valueg,and pro
ductiveness of the swamp lands of Florida,
purclhased a large body, and brought out, from
the Mediterranean, a -colony of about seven
hundred Greeks, and Minoteans, ap 1borers,
with the view tothe making -f sugar, and
other products. Those people were engaged
upon a principle sinilar to that which the
British are now-employing the coolies in Ja
maica-the apprentice system. They ere
stil6d "red motioners,' because of their being
bZund seven-years to- redeem, by their Ijbor
the expense of.the voyage, and the cost
provisions, &c., necessary to the support of
themg,and their families. At the end bf the
seven years, they were to receive stipulated
wages. Things went on prosperously, foi'
short time; buildings wre erected, extensive
canals, and ditches wr dug, and the lands
.were gradually being brought under !eutivT
tion. But at length the energies of the abo
ers began to,flag; their empfoyer became im
-patient; their task-masters became morel ur
gent ; blows and stripes were resorted to, witg
a view of inducing them to tsore active. work;
till,. at length, the Minorcans t.ookto running
away. Three of these fugitives-arrived af St.
Augustine, where thei'r tale bf,suffering, - and
wrong.excited the sympathy of the spaniafds,
;who, pursuing their old game tqwards.theEn

and,iRa* sbot tite, there was a corplete

WHY WiP~Ar.We db not pray to in
form God of our wants, but- to express our!
sense-of the wants- which He already knows.J
As He has not so much madelHis proimnises t
our necessities as to our-requests, it is reason
able that our retiests should be miade beforef
we can hope that our necessities will be re-)
lieved.- God does not prongse to those who
want that they shall have, biut to those who
ask ; or to those who need "that they shall
find, but to those who seek.-Hannak lore.

In the debates on the Oregon bill, in 1848,
Daniel Webster saia: "I understand that one half
the people who settled,in Illinois are people, or
descendants of people,, who came from the South
en States. And T suppose that on-third of the
people of Ohio are those, or descendants of those,
who emigrated from the South." We dare say
that a large proportion of the. people of other
North western States. are, in like mannor, South
ern citidens, or men of Southetn descent.
