Pattersonville, le 5 Mai, 1853. \n\n .Frem.the Spirit Qt the Times.. Coleridge's Works.--The sixth vol ume of thitsingularly interesting work is out, and the first article, "On the Constitution of the Church and State," is well calculated to rouse the most se rious attention of thousands in this country; but the "Table Talk," from which we make a few extracts, must amuse everybody, at the same time that it goes far to show the peculiar genius of this celebrated man: Othello most not be conceived as a negro, but a high and chivalrous Moorish chief. Shakspeare learned the spirit of the character from the Spanish poetry, which was prevalent in England in his time. Jealousy does not strike me as the point in his pas sion; I take it to be rather an agony that the creature whom he had be lieved angelio, with whom he had gar nered up his heart, and whom he could not help still loving, should be proved impure and worthless. It was the struggle not to love her. It was a mora indignation and regret that vir tue shoald so fall: " But yet the pity of it, Iago O, lago ! the pity of it, lago !" In addition to this his honor was con cerned: lago would not have succeeded but by hinting that his honor was com promised. There is- no ferocity in Othello; his mind is majestic and com posed. He deliberately determines to die; and speaks his last speech with a view of showing his attachment to the Venetian state, though it had super .sdad him Schiller has the material sublime; to produce an effect he sets you a whole town on fire, and throws infants with their mothers into the flames, or locks up a father in an old tower. But 4aakspeare drops a handkerchief, and tli same or greater effect follows. Lear is the thost tremendous effort of Shaks peare as a poet; Hamlet as a philoso pher or mediator; and Othello is the union of the two. There is something gigantic and unformed in the former two; and the whole mature powers of his mind are displayed in admirable equilibrium. I always had a great liking-I may say a sort of nondescript reverence for John Kemble. What a quaint crea ture he was! I remember a party, in which he was discoursing in his mea sured manner after dinner when the servant annodnced his carriage. He noddid, and ~i'ent on. The announce ident took place twice afterwards ; Kem ble each tithd dodding his head a little pmore impatiently. but still going on. At last, and for the fourth time, the ser +4nt entered, and said-" Mrs. Kedible says, ilr, she has the rheumatise, and 6annot sta4." " Add ism !" dropped John, in a parenthesis, and ptoceeded qnietl' in his hdrangue. kemble would correct any tire, and in ink place. Dear Charles Mathews -a true genius in his line, in my judg ment--told me he was once performing privately belore the King. The King was much pleased with the imitation of Kemb!e, and said-" I liked Remble very much. He was one of my earliest friends. I remember once he was talk ing, and found himself out of snuff. I offered him my box. He declined taking any-' he, a poor actor, iaould not put his fingers into a royal box." I said, ' take some, pray; you will obleege me." Upon which Kemble re plied-It would become your royal month better to say, oblige me;' and took a pinch." A rogue is a roundabout fool; stsdtus circumbendibus. You may depend upon it. that a slight contrast of character is very ma terial to happiness in marriage. I had one just flogging. When I was about thirteen, I went to a shoemaker, and bagged him to take me as his ap pteatiee. He, being an honest man. immediately took me to Bowyer, who got lhto a great rage, knocked dint down. and even pushed Crispin rmely out of the room. Bowyer asked i.e why I had made ,self such a fool? td Which I aeswer..that I had a great desire tb bot shoemaker, and that I hatdd the itetlkht of being a clergy. lai.: "Why so t said he. "Because, to till you the truthi sir," said I, " I am an nfidel !" For this, without more add, Bowyer ftetgl me-wisely, as I thi#-tled , is I know. Any iviti or Wd ing would have rU my tiltdi, £td confirmed me it A absardl.t; as it was, I was lagis ls at, atd g eieartily ashamed eb ether de3 I f it0at you would eldtPusl.dbj j iew.

And really', upon getting out of bed, where the cramp most frequently oc curred, pressing the sole of thg foot on the cold doqr, and then repeating this charm with theacts configurative there upon prescribed, I can safely affirm, that I do not remember an instance in which the cramp did not go away in a few seconds. I should not wonder if it were equally good for a stitch in ihe side, but I cannot say that I ever tried it for that. The Crystal Palace. tur latest New York dates announce that the ceremonies of inauguration wetie fixed for the 14th inst., (Thursday lasi; the day previous to throwing open the exhibition) on which occasion it was expected that the President of the United States, together with sorhe of his Cabinet, wuiild be present. The precise order of arrangement had pot been matde known, but it was said that a brilliant musical soiree would fomh a prominent feature, for which there was no lack of materiail, either with regard to instruments or performers. The sea. son tickets are fixed at $10. We copy the following description of a glance at the interior from the New York Tribune - it is the most cormprehei sive one we have seen: We had the opportunity yesterday of taking a glance at the inside arrange ments of the Crystal Palace, brid were gratified at observing the life and ac tivity manifested in every direction, which certainly gives promising indi cations that the work will be promptly completed within the two weeks which remain before the time fixed for the opening of the Exhibition. Many of the articles have already arrived and have been delivered at the building, but still lie mostly packed up in boxes, crates, &c., awaiting the completion of the counters, show-cases, and other necessary fixtures. Some, however, have already been unpacked, and have assumed the place assigned them for exhibition. Among these are a fevof the more celebrated works of art, which we have heretofore noticed. Maro chetti's "Washington," a colossal and very imposing cast in plaster, stands complete upon its lofty pedestal, in mediately under the dome of the Palace. Carew's " Webster" was minus the right hand, (which doubtless has been supplied by this time) and had not yet been elevated upon its pedestal. Workmen were busily en gaged in polishing up the magnificent bronze statue of the "Amazon on Horse back," to which we have heretofore alluded, and 'hich stands in one of the naves a little to the south-east of the center. Thor.ialdsen's magnifi cent statuary had alf assumed their ap propriate places, except the principal figure, which lay in disjointed frag ments, ready, however, to assume its proper shape and position. The ap pearanice of this group is very striking -.-it seems instinct with life, and one is silmost startled at first glance at the quiet grandeur a~id solemnity of the scene. Each figure is unique in its kind and perfectly characteristic. The features of Paul are stem fid resolute; Peter holds in his blands the keys; the doubting Thomas stands with' his finger pressed against his temple in an atti tude of medi'tatilom; the mild and fem inine feature~ of John: the youngest, and, as Gibbon calts him, ".the mgot sublime of "' be Evangelists,' are half turned to Heaven with an qfpression of angelic sweerfn'es and calm repose. A kneeling female figure, hofding in her hamtd a baptisnrda urn, i's to stand immediately in fronf 6r the figure of the Savior, which will eom let' the group. These casts, we understand, are the originals by Thorwal'dsen, and are now the property of E. Bgck, Esq., the Danish Consul in this qity; who has placed them for exhibition ir9 the Crystal Palace. Besides this group by Thorwaldsen, there will be some other very fine works by the same great ar tist, some of which are entered in the list of Italian contributions. Among them may be noticed "The Shepherd," "A Mercury," a group of" Ganymede," and many other works of art. We may here remark that in works of art the Exhibition promises to be very fine. England, Germany, France and onrown country contribute very lib erally to this department; but perhaps, on the whole, the finest collection will be from Italy. Mention has hereto fore been made of some of the princi pal of these works, and it is not neces smuy again to allude to them. They include imens of painting and scdlpture bv some of the best genius in Italy, among which it is only neces sary to mention such names as those of Rkphael and Canova. They include also origimls bly, as well as copies from, the old masters. The Italian collection, however, is dfot entirely composed of w'orks of art Mfany articles of indus tiial skl1l illbe sent from variog. parts of Italy.

EDITORIAL CONVENTION.-The Baton Rouge Comet of the 5th contains the following account of the proceedings of this Convention. We had hoped to be present on the interesting occasion, ! Sbut unfortunately we were doomed to pass the glorious "Fourth " on one ofI the bars of the bhio: At .12 o'clock on Monday, the 4th inst., this body assembled in the Judi ciary Committee Room at the Capitol, and organized by electing Geo. A. Pike. Chairman, and Jas. F. Blackman, Secretary. The Chairman briefly stated.the ob ject of the meeting-to establish a union of the press in Louisiana, to en courage good fellowship, and to unite the craft into an association for mutial protection and benefit. To accomplith this object, it was, on motion of W. R. Adams, Esq Resolved, "That this Association be called the Louisiana Press Union, with annual meet ings, to take place on the 22d of February at the State Capitol. " ,A permanent organization was deem ed necessary, and George A. Pike was elected President, J. F. Blackman and P.,&.I Hatch were elected Correspond ig Secretaries, and A. P. Converse Treasurer. On motion of Mr. Black man, it was Resolved, That the editorial corps of East and West Baton Rouge constitute ajomnt committee to prepare an address to the editors and printers in the State of Louisiana, on the subject of the PREss UNION, and also to prepare resolutions to be submitted in circular form, for the approval of the brethren, which resolutions, if sanctioned by a majority of the editors and printers in the State, shallgovern the fraternity until the next annmal meeting. Cn motion of T. B. R. Hatch, the meeting adjourned GEO. A PIKE, President. J. F. BLACKMAN, Secretary. With respectto the annual convoca tions, Friend Bradburn, of the Plaque mine Sentinel, suggests that they be held at 1ew Orleans, instead of Baton Rouge, as being most convenient to the fraternity. We think so, too; but will agret to anything, for the sake of peace in the family. Apples.-The Columbian (Texas) Democrat of the 5th inst. says : We were shown yesteiday by Col. c Thatcher, of Wharton county, some a very fine apple ,grown on his place. a He has about one hundred trees that are doing finely and nearly all bearing. He says they grow alike thriftily, whether grafted on trees grown from the seed or on the haw. They are in loamy soil, and the ground about the roots is kept light and loose by surface ploughing. He will raise thii year several bushels, quite enough to prove the practicability of raising apples in Texas. Married in Jail.-Joshua Anderson, in prison at Washington, on the charge of killing a slave belonging to Mr. Spriggs, of Williamsport, and now awaiting the requisition of the Go vernor of Maryland, the Republic says, was married in jail by the Rev. John Scrivener, of the Methodist church. The bride was desirous of having a bridesmaid, and the groom a gentle man; but on being assured that such arrangements were -not actually re quired in such delicate matters, the knot was tied in the presence of two of the jail police. Post Office Literature.-A copy of the Repub - lican directed to an Ohio Post Office, has been returned, with the following announcement on the wrapper;- " Dear Sir these does not belong in this place thare is no call for them may be they belong to - this is 4 that has sent yours P M have them properle direct" We'll find out where "these does belong" forthwith, and have them " properle direct." In the mean time, we are gratified at being able to announce to our nnknown friend, that Governor Slade will go West with a large number of School teachers sometime in August.

Certifiate pf Joseph Benson, Painter. I have used the Bridgewater Paint for the past five months on brick and plastered buildingr, and on tin, shingle and canvass. roofs, and in every instance it has given the fullest. satisfac, tion. From tests and experiments made under my immediate direction, I can testify to its being proof against effects of sparks and cinders, anda protection against leaks. I consider it far supe rior to any mineral paint I have ever seen, and invaluable for all out-door purposes-possessing qualities that particularly recommend it for use in a southern climate. JOSEPH BENSON. New Orleans, Feb. 6, 1852. Certqifcate of John F. Miller, of Attakapos. In July last I was induced to apply the Bridge water mineral Paint to my Sugar-House, and in every respect it has exceeded my expectations, and the representations made by the Agents, Messrs. G. C.

I cheerfully add my testimony to the numerous ones embraced in the Agent's circular, and recommend the same to planters and others, as the best fire and water protector I have ever known. Where I have applied it, it has been exposed to the sun since last July, and has neither blistered nor. cracked, and has formed a solid metalic surface, which has proved entirely impervious. Jo.....
