To be kind and loving towards aa t, i to return, in some small! - -- -yens ,r ived I a ,ely Few.chi!drea can ever have an opportauity to repay half the tender care and watchful anxiety which a kind mother bestowed on them when in infancy. I. is true that they were unconscious of it all, and it as verydifllicult to persuade them that such constant attention to their little wants and dangers was necessary. But when they see what other infants require, they can readily uaderstand what had to be done for them when they were themselves the same little helpless cretares. There is prehaps no way in which filial love is shown more pleasingly, than in caring for a sick mother. It seems to he returning the same sort ofeare which has been received in in fancy ; for the feeble patient is vesy much like the helpless infant. An Inanous Law xw DELAWAnn.-It is an. moieed in the Wilmington papers that Consta bis Moody, ofthat place, will ell Jeremiah Rob. iaoa and Alfred Caldwell, to the highest bid. der, for a term nat exceeding seven years, in oeder to raishe edlitution money and costs imposed on them by the Mayor's Court.

J. PowEiLL--who has been from his youth a mem. her of the Democratic party, voted for OLD ZAcK last Novemnber. The Locos have tried to coax him back into their ranks by promising to nominate him for public office. The follow ing is his manly and sensible reply :-N. O. S DONALDSONAILLE, Sept. 12th 1 49. To the Editor of the Vigilant, SiR-Having been informed that rumors are in circulation that my name would be submitted to the Democratic Convention, shortly to assem. ble, for the purpose of nominating a candidate as Representative to the Legislature : I would respectfully request the use of your columns to state, to such as may receive such an impres-. sion, that such is far from my intention. Having given Gee. Taylor my support to the Presiden. cy, in November last, and having no cause to regret the course I then pursued, I do not now wish . reramp his 4norts to carry out his views, by voting with those who are opposed to the sucess of his measures. A. J. POWELL. Marsc.-The Whigs have gained two Sena. tors in Cumberland county, and one in Wash ington. They have likewise gained several members of the House. It is yet possible that Locofocoism may be in the Legislature. A LEAsA.Tr WAY TO TAK IT.-The New York Evening Post, (Free Soil Democrat) in speaking of the late election in Vermont, says: "Returns have been received from 172 towns in Vermont. They are not of the slightest interest, since it has been known for several days that the enemy swept the field of all that was worth taking or keeping. There is no thing less pleasant to the vanquished than the details of a victory. It has been noticed that in France no history of the battle of Waterloo has obtained any considerable popularity. Our friends in Rhode Island and Vermont are taking a great deal of pains to show how it was that our! candidates were beaten, when the simple fact that they .il not get votes enough is an equally conclusive and unsatisfactory explanation of the whole matter. Iox USTEAD ExtumoX.-A western papert presents the following arguments in favor ot; exemlping a marfs homestead from liability for o debt: There are two leading reasons which ought a to have great weight. 'The flrst is, that the di.1 rect tendelncy of exempting the "homestead" Irom debt is to preserve the integrity of the fim. i y, both in society and property. It will keep the family together by keeping them horne- taterom all the storms of adtersy. lb tt it will greatly tend to prevent the ilya from coming o the public for support. Now, the State which legislates has a deep interest in maintaining the umity and prosperity of the fam. ly. The whole is made up of its parts. Soci. ly is founded in the family. f1 no family is driven out to seek a precarious support, the will have eo paupers to maintain. In e-. cry state of society, so matter what the laws, I the solvent mat maintain the insolvent. Is beth the Natal and Christian state of society, I it is the duty of the members ofa family to do this to one another. If, thelrthe family can be kept united, and have a home to rally upon, it is almost certain they will be able to do it. There is another reason almost equally strong and which concers the political health. There is no independence strictly speaking to be relied upon among people who have neither a home stead, nor the means of getting one. Many of our laborers do get homesteads, saved from the proats of their labor. This should be encour. aged-the whole comunity thould be made in dependent, ifpossible.-Homestead Josrnal.

A at of1at or noymintance em h ` aim chistesnmk a the heart:" p. Delahtussayc and the Contenlion. h An error exists in the minds of some of our 1 citizens in regard to who is, in strict justice, the t nominee of the whig party in this parish lor the t. office of sheriff. With no ill feelings towards ti Mr. Delahoussaye, but with an object to correct a gross error which has crept into the minds of i] some of our citizens, we shall propound some F respectful and civil questions to him, and we'S will freely give him as much space in our! columns as he may desire between this time and' the election, to answer those questions in. If! dr. Delahoussaye is correct in his position, he I will not shun investigation; and in justice to him. self, his friends and the whig party he should be n willing to vindicate the justice of his cause. 1I We then say to Mr. Delahoussaye-Did you lc go into the Whig Convention held in this parish I on the 14th of last April, pledged to abide by the r decision of that Convention ? u Was any rule adopted in that convention, re. , versing the usual custom of conventions, and pro. viding that a plurality, not a -in'ority ot the votes should decide who were to be the nominees of - the party? a Did Judge Baker declare to the Convention t' that it was underst,nod that a plurality, not a ma. il jority of all the votes was to decide who was to t' ibe the nominee ? Did the first balloting in'the Convention standl (as follows; Allen 73-Deelahounsaye!2-Stcr- t ling 57 ? t Did you after that balloting, in open Con. I' rentim, in the presencc of 177 wrhigs, declare s that you tould again submit your name to the ' Con entuon, and abide by its decision! t Did you and your friends then make rigor. ous efort to obtain for yourself as large a vote t as possible ? Did the vote then stand, Allen 70-Delahou. I ssaye 57-Sterling 50 ? Did the Convention then vote to drop the lowest Candidate and ballot again ? Did you and your friends then make another strong efort to obtain for yourself a large vote t Did the vote then thrown stand, Allen 99 ' Delahoussaye 72-giving Allen 27 majority? r Did you say to M r. G. L. Fuselier, previous t to the Convention, that you dad not expect there [ would hp a choice ofcandidates at the first bal. I loting, &d that you wished him to vote for you at the second balloting in the Convention 7 We will here add that we freely offer the 1use ofone column in our paper each week from 'this time till the election, to Mr. Delahoessaye, r or to any one that thinks that Mr. Delahoussaye tcan justly claim to be the candidate ofthe party, with the privilege of defending his claims on ; the party for support, provided the language used be respectful as we presume it would be, and provided alsothat no effort be made to cre aP e discord in the party.

BEWARE OF D.EIlGNLING .DVEETISR .Tra. -Our city readers may not all be aware that advertisements not unfrequenty find their way to a portion of the daily press, designed to mis. lead the unwary, and whose authors dre actua ted by the basest motives. An occurrence has just been narrated to us of by a worthy widowed mother, who desires it no. 01 ticed as a warning to others. She has an at. G tractive little family of daughters, and being in I feeble health, and left dependent on personal ei. tl ertion, has very proper instilled upon the minds V of her household the !importance of each doing 0 their part towards meeting their common wants. t One of the eldest children, a girl of fifteen, in looking over the daily sin, observed an adver. tisement saying that apprentices were'wanted at No.-' Canal street, to learn the business of ar. tificial flower making, and that small wages would be given at,rst, and increased according j to competence, &c. * .The daughter supposing that an opening was thus presented of which she might avail herseldl to begin to be useful, took it to her mother to ask permission to apply for the work in question. As no evil was suspected, her wish was approv.15 ed. She went to the place designated, and a ringing the bel', was met by a gentleman wh assured her she would be wanted, and directed her togo to their place of business a long distance s down town She did as desired, and on arriving at the place, found an elegant residence, with nothing to indicate its being a phlace ofbusaness. For a moment she besitated about entering; but finally ascended the steps nad was about to ri the bell, when a person on the walk, who bad observed her attentively, inquired her errand. !She gave it readily, and he at ance admonished 1 her mnt to emser the door, saying it was known I to b disepuable house and ould she go i she might at so soomgo .again.
