THl U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
A MAfllC SKETCH. uWhit m mui of represntatives there are here! . aaya the Knickerbocker tyagazine. 'What singular (???Im of o?r Tast country! Here sits a Tennes#ea , there ? Mtasourian, educated among Buffaloes, an nurtured in the forest?as inmate with the P?sse? 0 Ike Rocky mountains as the cit is with Broadway who lires with hunters and trappers, have vexe } hill, and who cares no more for a P*wnee than p fessed beau for a bright-plumed belle. Here from the prairies, and there another from i P and morasses whose blood the musqu'toes h^e ntter y stolen away. There is a sallow face ro n. grounds, and here the flushed cheek from tains, and by his side a man from the pino groun ^ land of tar and turpentine. What a people we are What a country is this of ours! |Iow wide i? exten ?how rich in production?how vaQous in beauty. 1 have asked, in my travels, for thd west, in the stree s of the queen of the we*t?a fait city, which but as yesterday was a wilderness. The)f smiled at my in quirv, and said it was among the "(hoosiers ot In li ana or the 'suckers' of Illinois. Then I journeyed along. I crossed great rivers and broad prairies, and again I asked for the west. They said it was in Mis souri. I arrived at the capital. They complained that they were "too far down east." 'But go', they said, 4if you would see the west, days and days, and hundreds and hundreds of miles up the Missouri?far ther than from us to New England, and beyond the Rocky mountains, and among the Snake Indians of the Oregon, and you may find it.' It was the work of a dozen years to find the west, and I turned about in despair. Indeed, I have found no bojjnds to my country. I have searched for them for months, in al most every clime?under the torrid sun of Louisiana, the land of the orange and the olive, and beneath the cold sky of Maine. I have seen the rice-planter gath ering rich treasures from a bountiful soil, and the. fish erman anchoring his little bark on the rocky Island, dropping his hook as carefully as if the ocean were full of pearls, and not of?mackerel. I have seen the millman sawing wood in all variety of forms, on the farthest 6oil of New England; and I have beheld the same wood floating down the Susquehanah, or the beau tiful Alabama, in the strangest metamorphoses: it may be, in a clock, regularly ticking off the time, or in a pail; perchance in a button, and, for aught I know, in a tasteless ham, or an unfragrant nutmeg! I have never been of the soil of my own country; and yet 1 have seen the snn go down, a ball of fire, without a mo ment's notice, twilight flinging over rich, alluvial lands, blooming with magnolias and orange trees?a robe of gold; :<nd again I have stood upon the bare rocks of cold climes, and when the trees were pinched by the early frost, I'have marked the same vanishing rays reflected from the leaves, as if a thousand biids of paradise were resting in the branches; and when the clouds, streaming with red, ar.d purple, and blue, tinged and tipped with the pencil of beauty, were floating afar, like rainbows in motion, as if broken from their confinement?now mingling and interlacing their dyes, and glittering arches, and anon sprink'ed over, and mollowing the whole heaven?then I have fancied thaj. I was indeed in a fairy land, where the very forests danced in golden robes, responding to the setting sun. as the statue of fabled memnon gave forth its welcoming notes as the rny of the morning played upon its summit. I have been where the dog-star ratres, scattering pestilence in its train?where the long moss hangs from the trees?where tbe pale faces and sad countenances give admoniiion that ihi3 is a region of death*? I have stood by the wide prairie, and be held the green billows rise and fall, and the undula tions, chequered with sun light and shadow, chasing one after the other, afar over the wide expanse. And 1 have gone amid the storms of winter, over the high hill, upon the loud-cracking crust, amid the music of Ihe merry sleigh bells. And here are the representa tives from all these regions?here iu one grand coun cil all speakiug one language?all impelled by one law! Oh, my country, my country! If our destiny he always linked as one?if the same flag, with its glorious stars and 6tripes, is always the flag of our union never unfurled or defended but by freemen? then poetry and prophecy, stretching to their utmost, cannot pre-announce that destiny!" WESTERN MOUNDS. The Fort Gibson, (Mis sissippi Sentinel, contains an article with respect to these singular remains. A person by the name of Powell, phrenologist, has opened some of the mounds, and upon examination of some of the skulls found in tli6m, comcs to the conclusion that the celebrated Natchez tribe of Indians and those who erected the mounds, were the same people.?The following he gives as his reasons: "on the \ azoo river, fourteen miles from Vickshurg. are eight mounds, six of them so arranged as to form a circle?the others are some distance removed, and contain crania of the same fornr At this place the French built a fort and church?and *. . "vt-ui *l.A T? rannU vara ma nan* obtained'the'samefornTof skulLalsoin several mounds in Virginia. These people were from Peru. I have seen a female skull taken from the templei of the sun, near Lima, which must have been deposited there about three hundred years since. I have a cast of the same K<?ad This skull resembles the lemale skulls which 1 have obtained from these mounds. For it must be remarked that the female heads of the Natchez and monumental Indians were not deformed by artificial .?nmnression. These female crania are unlike the fe 3 ?an?a of the present tribes. The Peruvians built mounds, so did these people. The Peruvians worshipped the sun,'so did these people, according to the French hrstory. These people were agricultural. All their remains were found on the most fertile soil. Thev were not military. No warlike implements are found with them or about their habitations, and besides if there had been they would not all have been de There are several mounds in and around Kalamazoo, ,nme of them of large dimensions. One or two have been opened, and a quantity of human bones, suppos ed to be those of the Indians, found in them; also ar row heads, made of flint stone, and earthenware have been dugout of them. FRENCH POLITENESS. In consequence of its havinc been made known to the French chamber of deouties that a rule existed in the house of represen tatives of the United States, giving the privilege of ?eats on the floor within the hall, during the sittings of congress, to members of foreign legislatures, they were resolved to manifest the sime civility to members of the American congress. The difficulty was how the affair should he managed to place Mr. V\ hlte, ot Florida, on a footing with their members at Washing ton ns there were no privileged seats within the hall ofthe palaces in which the deputies sit. It was propos ed to give a place in the tribune, reserved for the min uter and those invited by them, and, finally to mani fest the enprit du enrpt of national legislators, they have furnished Mr. W. with a medal of a member of the chamber, which gives the entre to all the palaces, reviews, and other public establishments which a dep uty has. Russian literature, at the present day, produces many female authors, principally romance writers. Some of them are very popular. Amongst them are named the Countess R Mesdames Teploff. I arnoff.and Ischmoff, whose productions in prose and verse have excited a lively interest. n HI. I?

It it the parent of about a* many crimes aa any other rice; for such I held it to be, at least one deacription of it. Where it ia a weakness it is much to be pitied, and generally leada to impro priety. How many honest men hare been made scoun drels by this false pride, of a foolish wife and extrava gant family. It is a compound of ignorance, decep tion and envy, and the world is full of it. So long as it operates upon individuals alone, it is a mailer of trifling consideration; but strange as it may appear, its influence strikes at the very root of a virtuous and flourishing community. Like intemperance it is assu ming the shape of a national calamity, and merits the severe reflection of every reformer. Thousands who have gone forth as armed knights, upon a crusade against manifest evils, have in themselves, been slaves to this insidiuous enemy! Self-love may prompt a man to do a good action, but falso pride has never; it is in compatible with his nature. In our own country, its chief mischief consists in making labor a degradation, thus striking at the foundation of our prosperous con dition as a people. There never was an age, perhaps, where so much scheming was resorted to, to avoid hard work; no peiiod that could exhibit ho many Jerry Did dlers above stairs and below, or manifest such a wild spirit of speculation, as the present. The rich man ol today, is the I.azarus of tomorrow! Fortunes are slaked upon the rise and fall of stocks, as upon the cast of a die. Cities are created by fraudulence! In the morning all eyes are cast upon the master spirit of enterprise, and the evening finds him a disgraced man within the walls of a prison. Ingenuity itself is thun derstruck at the countless methods adopted to obtain soft hands. Why does this disposition so extensively prevail? Certainly not for the security of happiness, for it is fruitful wiih poignant anxiety?not for health, for it frequently enervates and destroys. Sir Walter Scott, I think, says no man ought to want in this coun try, w ho can by a hatchet and fella tree: consequently, the remark being true, it cannot be from necessity. False pride whispers "it is not genteel to work." How banefully is this illustrated! Does the successful merchant make his son a me chanic? very seldom. Does the professional man make his son a mechanic? more seldom still. But does not the more unfortunate mechanic, make his son the guardian of cloths and calicoes? Why is this? is the yaid-stick more honorable than the jack plane? the goose quill more dignified than the type? Look back twenty or fifty years, and behold the barefooted adventurer, at the present time rolling in wealth! or spending his annual income of some three thousand dollars per annum, in manufacturing ladies of his daughters! Does he teach them the usual rudiments of housewifery? Very rarely. Is it because the healthful exercise of the domestic duties is disgraceful' Oh no! False pride says, "It would be ungenteel for ladies to work"?as if it would tarnish the fair and delicate fingers that bring such sweet sounds from the piano, to dust the gorgeous instrument itself. II oiv supremely ridiculous is this illegitimate pride! Thousands of daughters whose mothers have been raised in a kitchen, and their fathers, iri a horse stable ?would feel insulted, if asked if they had ever made a lo?f of bread, or washed out a pocket handkerchief! They would more likely prate "about good society," "mixed company," and the dignity of their ancestors! A few years more roll round, and the thrifty but im prudent parent dies, and then comes the scramble for some tenor twelve divisions of his hard earned estate. How small does a large fortune appear when apportion ed to numerous heirs! The daughters must of course marry gentlemen, must of course squander their patri mony. And what has the parent bequeathed to socie ty and his country? Children raised in idleness; with out the stimulant to add one io ta to the general, sub stantial prosperity of the community.?Butt. Monmt. AMERICAN SERVANTS.? 1 am quite convinced that American servants work harder and quicker than even the English, and that from their greater intelli gence, the}' are on the whole more useful. An Ameri can gentleman has seldom more than one man servant who is at once porter, footman, butler, and, if neces sary, coachman to the family. He cleans the boots, brushes the clothes, washes the windows, cleans the house, waits at table, goes to market, keeps the reck oning, and is, in one word, the factotum of the house hold. He is always at home, always busy, and hard ly ever spending his leisure hours at a public house.? Grond,s Americans. ABSENCE OF MIND.?Rouelle, the celebrated French chemist, was remarkable for an extraordinary absence of mind. One day, in the absence of his as sistant, being left to perform his experiments before a large class alone, he said: "Gentlemen, you see this cauldron upon the brazier. Well, if 1 were to cease stirring for a single moment, an explosion would ensue, which would blow us all into the air." This was no sooner said than he forgot to stir, and his prediction was accomplished; the explosion took place with a horrible crash, all the windows of the labratory were smashed to pieces, and two hundred auditors whirled away into the garden; fortunately, no serious injury was received, the greatest violence of the explosion being directed to the chimney. The forgetful stirrer himself escaped with the loss of his wig only. NEWSPAPERS.?The first number of a Persian newspaper was issued at Terheran, March 29. Its title is Akhbar Vakai, News and Events, and it has two pages closely written and lithographed, one de voted to oriental, and the other to foreign intelligence. Its conductor is a Meerza who was formerly an envov to London. Thus is demonstrated the advantages of commetceand national communication. PLOUGHING BY STEAM.?An English paper describes an experiment of ploughing by steam, which took place at Red Moss, near Iiorwich, in the early part of June; it is said to have been quite successful. We will first show the construction of the machine, and then the result of the experiment. It is described as an engine that is not locomotive but remains sta tionary while the plough is at work, and the plough is set in motion by means of two long flexible belts of iron, revolving round two wheels attached to the en gine, and round another wheel in a frame firmly fixed on the moss; at such a distance from the engine as may be proposed to make the fuirow. The end of these l>elts aie fixed to the two ends of the plough, and pull it to and fro, for it does not turn in working, but cuts a furrow both when it recedes from, and returns to the >ngine. This operation is described as most satisfactory, the plough turning a furrow IB inches broad, 9 inches thick, rind more thnn 300 yards long in less than four mil utes, and that with a precision which no common plough Gould equal. The moss, when thus turned, is harrowed, manured with charred peats, reduced to powder, and being sown with grass seeds, or clover, produces ex cellent crops as was very satisfactorily proved by those luxuriantly growing on the spot. As pea's also serve idmirably for fuel for the engine, the moss itself sup plies all the requisites for its own improvement. The ingenious projector, Mr. Parkes, was indefatigable in f-xplaining the particulars of his plan to the gentlemen who had assembled to inspect it, and who expressed themselves highly "ratified, as well as impressed with a favorable opinion of its great utility. CAOUTCHOUC 1IOSE. An interesting experi ment took plaee on board the powerful floating engine belonging to the London assurance corporation, the other day, in presence of the directors, to ascertain the strength of a newly invented hose made of caoutchouc, or Indian rubber. A length of leather hose and one of Indian rubber were attached to the engine, each furnished with a branch tightly corked. On working the engine for a short lime the leather hose, unable any longer to resist the accumulated pressure burst in the solid part of the leather, while the Indian rubber hose remained firm and uninjured, and the engine it self became disabled by the breaking of one of its cranks, without producing any effect upon the elastic material of which the new hose is constructed. INVITATION CARDS.?At a Police Court in London, on an inquiry into a charge of assault in a quarrel which arose at a dancing party, the following card of invitation was produced: "Your presence will be wanted at Widow Mahoney's next Sunday night, July 2d, to the dance. Admittance same as usual. Fiddler, Peter Carroll." The bill for abolishing punishment for debt in Great Britain, passed through the comrnitte of the Honse of commons. TREATY WITH THE KING OF SUM.

PT0TK. [As the United States have negociated the above treaty of commerce, with the kingdom of Siam, a short sketch of that interesting country of the East, may be in place in this number of our paper. Among) other "productions, " it may be recollected, that it is the land ot the Nativity of those 41 distinguished char-l acters" the Siamese Twins.] Siam is bounded N. by Thibet and China, E. by a range of mountains, which separate it from Cochin I China and Cambodia, S. by the gulf of Siam and the! peninsula of Malacca, and W. by the Birman empiie. I It extends 700 or 800 miles in length from N. to S.J and, like Egypt, is a wide vale, lying on both sides' of the river Menam, enclosed by ridges of mountains. The Menam, like the Nile, overflows itsbanks, and renders the land in its vicinity very fertile. A large part of the country is mountainous, abounding in wiTd animals, and unproductive. The grounds on the Me-| nam yield great crops of lice. Fruits are abundant, and of excellent quality; the durio, mangosteen, pine apple, tamarind, banana, areka, betel, sugar cane, co coa nut, <fec. The winters are dry and mild; the sum mers hot, moist, and unhealthy. The European trade with Siam is not great. The articles of export are tin, tutenague,, elephant's teeth ' 'ead, saffron wood, betel, birds' nests, diamonds, pep per, salt, rattans, wax, &c. Siam is not populous. It has been estimated to contain from 2, to 4,000,000 inhabitants, and about 130,000 sq. m. The inhabitants are of dark complexion, and resemble the Birmans in their manners and customs. They have made more progress in the arts of sciences, than the inhabitants of most of (he neighboring countries. Their religion is that of Budha, or Godama; their government des potic. The capital of Siam, on the river Menam, about GO miles above its mouth. I.on. 100 52. E.fL. 14. 18. N. Pop. stated by Ha3sel at 119,000. It is surrounded, by a brick wall, which is partially decayed. It is in tersected by several large canols; along the3e tho streets run, so that ships from the river may enter the town, and land their cargoes near the principal houses. Some of thn streets are tolerably large, but most of them are narrow and very dirty. The houses on firm ground are generally built of bamboos, planks, and mats; those on the banks of the rivers stand on posts about six feet high, that the water may pass freely under them. The city contains 3 royals palaces, and some magnificent pagodas, in the principal of which is an idol, 45 feet high, composed wholly of gold. i YANKEE ENTERPRISE IN CALCUTTA. ? The American Ice Company have commenced build ing a new and much larger establishment, in conse quence of the great increase in their business. A gorwl part, if not all of the ice taken from America to Calcutta, was from Massachusetts. Population of the Dritixh Empire.?The territorial extent of the British colonies is estimated at 1,914,500 square miles, the population at 114,000,000; making, with that of England, Ireland, and Scotland, one hun dred and 30 millions of souls under the British sceptrc. NATIVE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION. Prmmbk amd Constitution of the Washington City American Society. Whereas, it U an admitted feet that all Governments mm not only capable, but bound by all the principles of national preservation, to govern their affair3 by the agency of their own citizens; and we believe the re publican form of our Government to be an object of faar and dislike to the advocates of monarchy in Eu rope, and for that reason, if for none other, in order to preserve our institutions pure and unpolluted, we are imperatively called upon to administer our peculiar system free of all foreign influence and interference. My admitting the strsnger indisciiminately to the ex ercise of thoee high attributes which constitute the rights of the native born American citizen, we weaken the aitnrhment of the native, and gain naught but the sordid allegiance of the foreigner. The rights of the American, which he holds under the Constitution of Um Revolution, and exercised by him as the glorious prerogative of his birth, are calculated to stimulate to action, condense to strength, and cement in sentiment and patriotic sympathy. Busing, then, the right and duty to confederate on these high truths, we profess no other object than the promotion of our native country in all the walks of private honor, public credit, and national independ ence, and therefore we maintain the right, in its most extended form, of the native born American, and he only, to exercise the vaiious duties incident to the ramifications of the laws, executive, legislative, or ministerial, from the highest to the lowest post of the Government; and to obtain this great end, w? shall advocate the entire repeal of the naturalization law by Congiess. Aware thst the Constitution forbids, and ?ven if it did not. *v* have no wish to establish, ex\ p?*t ftuto laws, the action we seek with regard to the laws of naturalization is intended to act in a prospec tive character. We shall advocate equal liberty to all who were ham equally frttt to be so horn, constitutes, when connected with moral qualities, in our minds, the aristocracy of human nature. Acting under these generic ptinciples, we further hoH that, to he a per- 1 rnanent people, we must be a united one, bound to gether by sympathies the result of a common political origin; and to he national, we must cherish the na tive American sentiment, to the entire and radical exclusion of foreign opinions and doctrines introduced by foreign paupers and European political adventur ers. Kroni Kings our gallant forefathers won their liberties?the slaves of Kings shall not win them I back again. Religiously entertaining these sentiments, we as solemnly believe that the day has arrived when the Americans should unite as brothers to sustain the strength and purity of th?ir political institutions. We I have reached that critical period foreseen and prophe sied by some of the clear-sighted apostles of freedom, when danger threatens from every ship that floats on the ocean to our shores, when every will') that I blows wafts the ragged paupers to our cities, hearing I in their own persons and characters the elements of I degradation and disorder. To prevent these evils, we are now called upon to unite our energies. To fight over thifi urent moral revolution, the shadow of our I first revolt of glory, will be the duty of the sons of those wars, and we must go into the combat determin- I ed to abide by our country; to preserve her honor free from contagion, and her character as a separate peo- I pie high and above the engraftment of monarchical despotisms. ARTICLES or THK CONSTITUTION. First. We bind ourselves toco-opetate, by all law ful means, with our fellow native citizens in the United States to procure a repeal of the naturalization Second. We will use all proper and reasonable ex ertions to exclude foreigners from enjoying the emolu ments or honors of office, whether under the General or State Governments. Third, That we will not hf ld him guiltless of his country's wrong who, having the power, shall place a foreigner in office while there is a competent native willing to accept. Fourth. That we will not, in any form or manner, connect ourselves with the general or local politics of I the country, nor aid, nor he the means of aiding, the I cause of any politician or party whatsoever, but will excliiHively advncalfi, stand to, find be a separate and I independent party of native Americans, for the cause of the country, and upon the principles as set forth in the above "preamble and these articles. Fifth. That we will not, in any manner whatever, connect ourselves, or ho connected with any religious sect or denomination, leaving every creed to its own strength, and every .man untrammelled in his own laith, adhering for ourselves to the sole cause of the I natives, the establishment of a national character, and I the perpetuity of our institutions, through the means of 1 our own countrymen. Sixth. That this Association shall be connected with and form a part of such other societies throughout the United States as may now or heteafter be estab lished on the principles of our political creed. Mr. B. K. MorselI moved to amend the foregoing by ] adding other articles, which, in like manner, after some amendments, were adopted. 1st. That this Association shall he styled the 44 Na tive American Association 6f the United States." 2d. That the officers shall consist of a President, Vice President, Council of Three, Corresponding Secretary, Recording Secretary, a Committee on Ad dresses to consist of three members, a Treasurer, and such others ns nny be required under any by-laws hereafter adopted, and duties whose shall he therein defined. 3d.-That all the foregoing officers shall be elected by this meeting, to serve for one year, except the Committee on Addresses, which shall be appointed by the President. 4th. That the President, or, in his absence, the Vice President, or, in the absence of both, the Corres ponding or Recording Secretary, is authoiised to con vene a meeting of this Association whenever it may be deemed necessary. PROSPECTUS OF THE NATIVE AMERICAN. Under the auspices of the 44 Native American As sociation of the United Slates," the subscriber pro poses to publish a paper with the above title in this city. i r l I The object of this paper will he the repeal of the Naturalization Law, tlm re-eatmhlishment of the de clining cliaiacter of the Native American, and to sssert those rights guaranteed to us by the charter of the I Revolution, and ro-secured by the brilliant victories of the late war. 4 'nI In stating the objects of this publication, we imply I the existence of a party adverse to those interests so established; and thn history of latter days, warrants the belief, that such a party is in existenco, but it is one which wo must meet and combat on the thresh- I hold of our country. The political revolution which we witness in England, and which is extending itself I gradually but surely over the continent of Europe, is one indicative of the restless and daring spirit of the sge A contest between the aristocratic and democratic principles, in which the ciumbling but still gigantic power of hereditaiy right, is vainly opposing itself to the right of the people, to be heard in the Legislative I Councils, in proportion to their numbers: out of these two great parties, the Whigs and Conservatives or Tories, has sprung another powerful body, called Radicals, equally obnoxious to both of the two chief I contending parties. The conseivatives fear it with a shuddering and overwhelming fear; and the whigs who go for liberal, but not destructive reform, dread this third estate in the realm, because it is composed of tho violent elements of society, and disposed to go to the lengths of a revolution or a civil war; conse quently, it is the object with both whigs arid lories, to | rid the country of this dangerous intermediate pirty, and no other surei means is offered than to ship them to our shores: Hence the overwhelming arrival of emigrants. It is nonsense to talk of their innate love ol the " democratic principle}" they are nothing more nor less than the materials with which factious leaders in England had determined to uproot society; over throw peace and government; track the land with their bloody footsteps, and pollute every consecrated avenue, leading to the edifice of the British laws. In future numbeiH of this paper, it will be the duty of its conductor to substantiate these charges by proof* de rived from English writers, and explain the anomaly of a civilized country deluging a land with which it is at peace, by treaty and interest, with the most terri ble means of legal and political destruction. Leaving their own land trembling with the electric elements of a great political storm, branded by the good and patriotic, destitute of principle, anxious for power as the means of wealth, regardless of the ties of civil restraint, reared in the Lazarhouses of over taxed and discontented parishes, hated and detest ed from their youth to their maturity, these vast hordes of modern Huns, place their feet upon our soil, ignprant of our customs?regardless of our laws, and careless of those great uniting qualities that bind us together a united and happy people. To counteract evil influence arising from whatever cause, the public press has been found at all times, since the glorious era of its discovery, an efficient agent. Its influence goes forth upon the four winds of heaven, and its high voice is heard in the four quar ters of the earth. Its eloquence rings in the congre gated councils of nations, and it speaks as a Prophet and a Preacher, to the oppressed of all climes. Its influence is felt in proportion to the cause, it advo cates. All times have tested its power?all causes have acknowledged its aid, and it is now proposed, that the cause of our country and our countrymen, should be supported and made manifest through this great organ. The times are rife for our purpose. The system with England to flood this country, has proved of ad vantage to her taxed landholders?her impoverished parishes?to her government?her aristocracy, and hei king. Her ministry have determined to eradicate an evil, not by the enactment of a salutary law, but by the perpetration cf an outrage and an injury. The other nations of Europe and the Eastern World, will, and are following her example. India and China will doubtless take the epidemic of emigration, and to se cure themselves against the chances of a plague, the filthy victims of the wrath of heaven, will be shipped to our hospitable shores. To help to stay this desecrating tide, will be our high and chiefest aim, and we appeal to the well judg ing of all parties, to aid us in the undertaking. In this cause we recognise no minor creed. We look not at the mansion of our President, with en ambition to place any particular individual there; but our eyes will be kept steadfast to the rock of American princi ples. We will see nothing but the banner of our na tive land, streaming over the extreme confines of cur country, and to our ears will come no other prayer, than the true American worship, around the altar of American liberty. The minor objects of the paper will be the advance ment of our own indigenous literature; and while we are willing and ready to pay the highest tribute of merited respect to the literature of other lands, wo will not do it at the expense of a native, whose works are not read, because he has not the stamp of a Mur ray on his title page, or the approbation of a Black wood on the outside cover of his volume. We will not carry the war of our principles against the shrines of genius?they are sacred, most peculiarly so to our heart, ami are above the changing phases of the po litical dramas. Domestic and current intelligence shall be regular ly given, in a short and agreeable manner. The proceedings of Congress will be condensed, and sketches of speeches and speakers given during the session, with lively outline of events as they trans pire at the Seat of Government. In no instance will party politics be allowed to bias the editorial pen, but men will be treated with impartiality, and opinion with the utmost and most delicate respect. HENRY J. BRENT. JOSEPH L.
