The foHoiring sweet song was sung at the
late Burns Festival in 2sTcw York :
Take back the ring, dear Jamie,

And a the vows you made yestreen
Beneath the birkin tree ; V
Rut gic we back my heart again

I canna leave my mainmic, - ,
She's been sae kind to me,
Sin e'er I was a bainoe,
A wee thing on her knee ; -
2no mair she'll catnc iny gowden Jtair,
Nor busk me sinwul and bniw,
She's auld and frail,. her e'en are dim,
And sune will close ou a'.

To watch her steps in helpless age,
As 9 in youth watched mine.
c The Shn'ati; of thk United States. The person
al and political notices of the United Statos Sena
tors, now in session at Washington, which we gave
in the Herald of 3'esterday, will doubtless attract
mticli attention. The first point of observation with
regard to this body is, the amount of talent existing
among the members, compared with the Senate of
other days. It may be safely asserted, wetlnnk,
that the character of the Senate is not deteriorating.
If there are none to be found in the present Senate
to supply the places of Webster, Clay, Calhoun, and
Benton, it will be found that the average amount
of talent is kept up in the whole number, and that
Ihe proportion of really inferior men is small among
the Senators. On running over the personal no
tices which we have given, it is curious to observe
the course of political training most of the Senators
have undergone, in their respective States, by pub
lic services of various kinds, before they have been
considered qualified for election to the Senate.
These services have been executive, legislative, ju
dicial, or military, according to circumstances.
The leading men as debaters in the Senate, as at
present organized, leaving the free soilcrs out of the
question, will doubtless he Cass, Hunter, Mason,
Soule, Atherton, Butler, Douglas, Busk and Hous
ton, on the democratic side with Clayton, Everett,
Pearee, Dixon, Jones, Badger, Truman"Smith and
Geyer, on that of the whig. Gen. Cass and Gen.
Dodge sire the two oldest men in the Senate, being
over seventy years of age. Most of the others have
been born during the present century, and the aver
age ages of the forty-live Senators whose years are
known is about fifty.
With regard to nativity, the old Slates still pre
serve the preponderance in furnishing national le
gislators, no less than thirty-nine out of forty-nine
Senators whose birthplaces arc known having been
born in the old thirtetn Stales, viz: In the New
England States 14, in New York 4, Pennsylvania
2, Maryland 4, Delaware 2, Virginia 5, North Caro
lina 2, South Carolina 4 and Georgia 2. Of the
others, there were born in Tennessee 2. Indiana 2,
Ohio 1, Missouri 1, Ireland 1, France 1, West In
dies 2. Ethuologically considered, the fifty-six Sen
ators, (there being six vacaticics.) may be classed
as follows : Of Anglo-Saxon origin 39, Scotch 5,
"Welsh G, Irish 1, French 3, Spanish 1, German 1
Total 50.
One of the most striking points in the list of Sen
ators, is the vast preponderance of gentlemen of
the legal profession. A foreigner, in looking at the
occupations in private life of the executive and le
gislative branches of our government, might well
suppose that the constitution provided that lawyers
should always have the prel erence, on the same
principle that the charter of the Mechanics' Bank,
of this city, provides that a majority of the Board of
Directors shall be mechanics. No less than forty
one of the United Slates Senators are, or have been
lawyers, leaving fifteen for all other occupations.
Of these last, the medical profession have two; the
mechanics, two; the military, the planters, and re
tired gentlemen, the remainder the merchants not
having one of their own number to represent them.
Truly, the legal profession is the favored class with
the people of this country X. Y. Herald.
Sinculak Phenomenon. A severe snow storm
accompanied by lightning occurred in a part of
Maine ou the 13th tilt A correspondent of the
Gardiner (Ma) Fountain, writing from Bass Har
bor, Mt. Desert, describes the storm, as it appeared
there, as awful and sublime. A thunder cloud
passed over the place, which, for terrific appear
ance, exceeded anything ever witncscdHherc.
The correspondent adds:
The lightning was of a purple color, and some
times appeared like b.dls of fire, coming in through
windows and doors, and down the chimneys, while
the houses trembled and shook to their very found
ations. Mrs. E. llolden was near a window, winding up
a clock; a ball of fire came in through the window
and struck her hand, which benumbed her hand
and aim. She theu,.with all in the house, retreat
ed into the entry. Another flash succeeded, and,
in the room from which they had retired, resem
bled a volume of fire, whirling round and produ
cing a crackling noise. A similar appearance of
iire was seen, and crackling noises were heard in a
large number of the houses. Some who heard the
noise say that it sounded like breaking glass.
Capt. Maurice Rich had his light extinguished,
and his wife was injured, lie got his wife on to a
bed, and found a match; at that instant another
flash came and ignited the match, and threw him
several feet backwards. John L. Manin received
so severe a shock that he could not speak for a long
A great many persons were slightly injured.
Some were struck in the feet, some in the eye;
"while others were electrized, some powerfully and
some lightly. But what was very singular, not a
person was killed or seriously injured, or a building
damaged; but a cluster of trees, within a few rods
of two dwelling houses, were not thus fortunate.

thorn out bv the
earth, and throwing all in every direction. Some
were left hanging by their roots from the tops of
the adjacent trees, roots up and tops down.
The lightning, after entering the cartli to the
depth of several feet, and for a space some eiht or
ten feet in diameter, divided iuto four different di
rections. One course which it took led through
" -J w A iJlUUCO (U1U
the open land, making a chasm to the depth of sev
eral feet, and continued its march unobstructed by
the solid frozen ground, or any other substance to
the distance of 370 feet; lifting, overturning, and
throwing out. junks of frozen earth, some of which
were 10 or 11 feet long, by 4 feet wide, and hurl
ing at a distance rocks, stones, and roots. The pow
er here displayed was truly awful, and had it fal
len on a building, it would have thrown it, with its
inmates, into ten thousand fragments.

Northeast Harbor (in this island) several vessels

Boston, March 9. The New England Baptist
convention assembled to-day. The Rev. A. C.
Caswell, of Rhode Island, was chosen President
and Hon. Isaac Davis, of Massachusetts, Vice Pres

A report was received from each of the New
England States respecting the condition of the
Baptist Colleges and Academies. -
TnE "Wholesale Tkade. The facilities opening
up for communication with Nashville from the sur
rounding country, are beginning to make this place
the great point of travel and trade. Already does
the wholesale trade begin to assume an importance
as to almost rival in amount of business done Louis
ville, Cincinnati and some cities on the seaboard.
Within two vears this department of trade has in
creased fifty per cent, andis steadily and rapidly ad
vancing. ' This is not strange nor improbable. Our
merchants make direct importations from Europe
and the American manufactories. Their house rents
and clerk's hire, together -with the accommodations
afforded tliem for the cheap transportation of their
heavy stooks of "oods through the various avenues
J of transit, enable them to compete successfully with
oar more northern neighbors. In purchasing from
this market the country merchant saves time, in
surance on his goods, and the various annoyances
incident to getting his goods to market. Besides
these advantages the dealer from the country gets
his articles much cheaper, and by encouraging
home trade helps to build up a department of com
merce which .will be eventually to his advantage.
The more our jobbers are patronized the more will
it be in their power to sell goods at a less profit.
Our trade is now large and prosperous. Prices
ruling comparatively low in consequence ot our
most extensive dealers having made their selections
in advance of the eastern jobbers, and in view to
the large advance in prices of dry goods. About
1st of January we learn that returning retail dealers
from the Atlantic cities reserved a portion of
their purchases to be made in Nashville having
been unable to do any better in those markets than
can be done here. So long as our extensive and en
terprising jobbing houses continue to demonstrate
their capacity to compete with the eastern jobbers
in styles, quantity and prices, this will be an attrac
tive market We advise merchants to give this
market an examination before going elsewhere ' to
make their purchases.
Territory of Washington. A new territory
with this designation was created, and provisions
made for its organization, by an act of Congress ap
proved on the 2nd instant It comprises that part
of Oregon which lies north of the middle of the
main channel of Columbia river, to where itcrosses
the forty-sixth degree of latitude, and thence along
said degree of latitude, to the top of the Rocky
Mountains. The land occupied by missionary sta
tions, not exceeding six hundred and forty acres to
each, together with the improvements, is expressly
reserved and confirmed to the missionary societies
respectively which established the same. Stations
that were so occupied prior to the passage of the
act organizing the territory of Oregon are also con
firmed to the societies which established them, even
though they have since been abandoned.
Henderson and Nashville Railroad. There
can now be no doubt, says the Henderson (Ivy.)
Banner, of the early commencement of this great
work. We are grcally pleased to see that the ar
duous labors of the able President of the Company,
Col. E. II. IIorKiNS, have not been fruitless. In
the week .past he has been speaking and laboring
in Henderson, and considerable additional stock
has been subscribed, which fact gives us hopes that
Henderson will not long remain behind her sister
counties in the cnterprizc.

committee on resolutions reported on the following
points, which were adopted in detail by the. con
vention :
1. AH words in the body of the message should

The El Dorado, from Asninwall. arrived at Ha

The Providence bark Corsair arrived from Mo- "'
zambique, bringing Uaptown papers of Jan. 4th.
The mail of the 4th contains an account of a se
vere fight, in which six thousand Basu tor horsemen
were routed by about one thousand British.
The chief, Morbest, had agreed to deliver ten
thousand head of cattle and one thousand horses as
a fine for depredations he had committed. He fail
ed to comply with the engagements, and the gov
ernor advanced into his territory to seize the cattle.
Basu tors defended their property, and, although the
British at one time captured thirty thousand, the
Basutor horsemen were overthrown, and the next
day the chief sued for peace. The conflict lasted
from morning until night The British los3 was 38
killed and 15 wounded. The loss on the other side
was much greater.
3 Cincinnati is becoming one of the most dis
orderly places in the Union. Last Sunday seems
to have been a general festival of fisticuffs, free
fights, firemen's riots and all manner of ungodliness.
The following account from the 2vonparid of Tues
day, is a specimen :
Another Riot. Sunday afternoon, as several of
No. 8 Fire Company were drinking in a coffee
house on the corner of Twelfth and Vine streets
they were attacked by a party of No. 5 Fire Com
pany. Stones and clubs flew thick and fast, striking
and injuring several on each side. Those of the
Eights then drew their revolvers and commenced
firing upon the Fives, shooting two of the company
one a boy, in the arm, aud the other in tha side.
The Eights then retreated down Twelfth street to
Western Row, chased by the Fives, both compa
nies firing pistols and hurling stones and clubs at
every step. The arrival of a posse of police under
the direction of Capt Couch and Marshal Uufiin
dispersed the rioters. Several balls entered the
dwelling houses on Twelfth street, but fortunately
no one was injured.

It is remarkable that the snowstorm -which com

England. AVe have already mentioned
Cuba to
the fact
that the British ship of the line Cumberland recently
visited Havana, with a formal demand upon Gen
1 Canedo for satisfaction and apology lor the outrages
committed lately upon the persons pf British sub
jects in the Island ot Cuba, and for the insults to the
British Government in the persons of H. B. M.
Consul General, and the commander of,the ship-of-war
Vestal; and also for the late connivance on the
part of the Spanish officers in the slave-trading
operations in Cuba. The Xew Orleans Picuyune
Gen. Canedo assured the British commander that
it had never been his intention to insnltthe officers
of the British Government, or to reflect upon their
conduct in any way; and that immediate examina
tion should be made into the claims of British sub
jects, and ample reparation should be made Jbr any
injury that might have resulted to them through
unjust proceedings.
The Picuyune also states it was rumored in Ha
vana that a British Commissioner was on his way
there to demand the immediate manumission of
every African that had been imported into that
island since 1S21, in contravention of the terms of
the treaty with 1'lnglaud. This rumor was causing
great consternation in Havana, as it was supposed
it would manumit three-fourths of the slaves in, the
. The British Admiral had sent orders to Bermuda
for so. ne more English ships-of-war to proceed to
Havana, and the permanent English naval force
there was to be largely increased. An effort is to
be made to stop the slave trade by direct intimida
tion of the principal authorities of the Island.

his talents, esteem him for his virtues, and love him
for his social qualities. He is a public man with

The address of Gen. Pierce to-day, is the subject of
conversation among all parties at the hotels to
night. Every body is delighted with it except the
Barnburners. Even the whigs praise it. Gen.
Cass says . it i3 a good old fogy speech, and Judge
Douglass says it is of the Young America school.
It would seem that Gen. Pierce's observations on
foreign relations are not only not an empty flourish,
but have a deep import. He recently received a
telegraph message, from a reliable source, in refer
ence to the Black Warrior affair. So you need not
be surprised to hear soon that he will take an im
portant step, in reference to the Cuban affairs. The
President intends to manage the foreign reiations
It is curious that Fillmore and Pierce not only
changed places to da3 in a political sense, but ex
changed quarters Mr. Fillmore taking the rooms
LhatjUen. Pierce left at Willard's.
It is considered a courteous act on the part of
Mr. Fillmore to have written Gen. Pierce to try
to accompany him in the procession to the capitol.
