THE PIOUS DWARF.
This remarkable character is now liv-
lug in Culpepper county. Remarkable
indeed she is, on account of her size, her
sunenngs, her intelligence,and her piety.
She weighs only 30 pounds, 37 vears
old, is 3 1-2 feet high, and has not walked
for 26 years. She enjoyed common
health till eleveu years of age, she was
then affected with rheumatic pains. Her
hands audfeet are drawn into deformity;
she is not able to bring her hands to her
mouth. With all liquid food she is fed
as a child; solid lood she eats with
long fork. She uses a little stick, about
twelve inches in lenght, with a comb at
tached to the end, in dressing heir hair,
with which she also uses her handker
chief. Besides her suffering from rheu
matic pains, she is much aril iced by
other diseases. Her physicians say
they have never known a human
being suffer so much, aud yet live.
She told me, that when she found herself
cutoff from all the amusemnets and pleas
ures of children, she was led to turn her
attention to religion, and seek for hap
pmess in its holy consolation. She
ight not in vain as gone ever did.
She is almost entirely self-taught.
Though her hands are closed affliction,
she writes fast and well, of which she
is very fond, and writes much. In con
versation, she is lluentand eloquent.
She sings well, her voice is both
strong aud musical. In this hcavenlv

Viety is of no ordinary character.
She seems to bask in the smiles
and presence of her her adored God
nd Saviour. 1 had the pleasure and
profit of visting her three times last
month, preaching each time in her room.
have never seen aiw person enjoy
the gospel so much. She appeared in
raptures of holy love and heavly jov.
She followed mv sermon, each time.
with such exhortations as to move the
learts of all who heard her.
She takes great delight in prayer.
No professor who visits her, is permitted
to depaniwitb her
in addressing the marc v seat. Som
who never prayed in pulic, have com
menced, for the first time, in her room
No unconverted person visits her,
without receiving the most solemn and
pathetic warning to flee from the wrath
to come, and take shelter in the atone
ment and righteousness of the Lord
Jesus Christ. Some seem afraid to
venture near her. A number date
their first serious impressions from
her exortations. I have never heard
any person express so deep and tender
concern for ost and dying sinners as
I have heard from her. Her common
expression is "my soul is in agony fo?
Door ruined sinners." After continu
ingone night in her, room, till 12 o'clok
when wc were about to retire, she said
to me, had I vour health and strength, I
would not sleep to-night, but would go
from house to house to warn sinners to
flee from the wrath to come. From
the periodicals of the day, she has made
herself acquainted with the states of the
heathen, and feels a deep interest inmis-
lons andevrey ueneveolentinstintion oi
the' acre. The success of missions is
much, in her conversation and pray
ers. Ohc addresses monitrv notes
and letters throughout her neighbour
hood, admonishing Christaians to duty,
and warning others.
The Saviour seem to dwell under her
roof. It is noticed by many that meet
ings are more livlclv and solemn there
than in any other place. During eight
days, in the neighborhood, I delivered
22 sermons, 3 of which were m the
rooms, and I must sav, the Lord our
Saviour, was sweetly and powerfully
present in each meeting, lhe entire
amilv, a widowd mother abrother, and
three sisters, all seem to have imbibed
larg measure of her heavenly zeal
and joy. They all excel in singing; and
in being with" them, one cannot help
eeling, he is in a family, that will com
pose apart of heavn. How blessed is
every family where Jesus design to
dwell! Nothing but ."fyNove, isworthy
no name to nappinessai
I have never heard 4 one lament
he deep depravity ofoufc nature more
han she does, or male more frequent
kah'humi!ating confessions of being
the chief of sinners. Her views ot the
wav of acceptance with a just, holy.
and offended Creator, appear to be
clear; relying wholly on the blood and
righteousness of the bon ot bod
received by faith, produced by the
operations of the spirit of God attending lout ot'its ranks tud men, and the Whigs

to bear upon the heart of the blind and
dead sinner. Reflections such as the
following engaged my heart and mind
while present with the little and afflcted
heir of glory. How great is the goodness
of God. How blessed the religion of
Jesus. ' How happy those who rightly
enjoy the divine presence. How far
are most Christians living below their
privileges. How certanly true is the
gospel. I should think an infidel must
be clad in full armor of steel and be
influenced by the verv devil himself,
if he could see and hear the pious and
intelligent little dwarf speaking of her
joys and talking of her Saviour, without
feeling liis unbelief give way, and his
guilty soul to tremble. 1 must think
it impossible for any one to visit her
without singular benefit. It has been
good for me, that I was permitted
to form on acquaintance with one so
ripe for glory. This brief and imperfect
sketch, has been given to the public
with her consent. She at lirst host
tated a little, from delicacy of being
known through lhe press; but said if vou
think you can say any thing about me
that will do any good you are at liberty
to do so."
VM. Y. HITER.
From Oregon. Elijah White, who
went out as U. S. Agent to Oregon and
took with him a large party of erne-
grants, writes under date of August 17,
that his party increased to 118 altho
ugh they had lost two, one bv sickness
and the other bv an accident. Ihey
started with 19 wagons, and their jour
ney had been slow ; and. tedious; but
thev had passed twothirds of the way,
and were in excellent health and good
spirits. A favorable ' opportunity for
emegation will occure in April through
the aid of Mr. Fitzpatrick, at Independ
ence, lie oilers to pilot a party over
he mountains from that place. Mr.
White advises those who intend to go,
to Dreoare isht. strong wagons, and to
misfortune to lose oil the fruits of the
great blossoming ot 1840, by a biting
frost of deadly treachery. But how
should this persude rational men that a
National Bank, if fairly tried, will not
give us a better currency ! . How should
this pesuade men that the Whig finan
cial policy, by which they firmly believe
a restoration of the former prosperity
of the country my be had, if fairly
stated, is all wrong? Let it not be for
gotton that that policy has not been
tried since 1840 that it has been de
feated by the extraordinary alliance of
adverse factions whoar now upbraiding
Whigs for their ill-fortunes and all
ihat the Whigs ask is a fair trial of their
proposed public measure. Measures
which have indeed been amply tasted
in fortv years of fair trial prior to 18.16.
and which secured, to the country for
the time, a steam engine force of on
ward increase and prosperty.

Communicated
Weare now realizing the better con
sequences of "Democratic financiering,'
from 1833 to 1837. An unbroken chain
of disasters, from the close of that period
to the present time, has continued to
scourge a sunennir people. J I the
Whigs are guilty of any sin it is the sin
ot omission, rather than commissin of
not relieving the country from the
scourges inflicted by locoloco misrule
prior to 1840, and which have continued
to this day. But in this, even, they
have not given "relief," but whv! and
witn wnai grace can their opponents
upbraid them for it. Thev promised
relief, with a Whig President, and with
Whig measures in operation. Thev
did all in their power to secure these
results, but were defeated. They did
not promise relief with locofoco measu
i . I t" r
res, anu with a worse than locoioc
President in power. These cirruimt
auces havo been forced upon them by
accidents unforeseen and unparalleled
in the historv of the country. Jt is not
the fault of Whig principles that their
chosen President died it is not the
ault of Whig principles that the ccci
dental President has turned upon hi:
own friends and de fated their prominent
measures it is not the fault of Whig
principles that an extraordinatv and
unlooked for alliance has been ; formed
between one into whos hands the Whigs
unfortunately confided their strength.
and their old opponents who have al
ways warred upon them opcnlv: winch
alliance has signalled itself in a system
atic defeat of Whig measures it is not
he fault of Whig principles that through
such means that great financial policy
bv which thev pledged themselves re-
iei wouia oe given to me country, iias
been utterly barred from the operation
Of a fair trial. No these things do not
argue a fault in Whig principles, for by
hem Whig principles have been set
aside, and locofocoism has been still left
to fester in the heart of the:ountrv.
Such extraordinary and unforeseen
circumstances have never before over
taken any political party in the world.
The Whigs have been 'as powerless to
prevent them as was Gen. Washington
o prevent the treachery of Arnold.
The purest party on earth cannot keep
fairs arc mightlv deranged.
"flie ice in the Mississippi gave way ,.
last Wednesday night, and is still runnig .
very thick. The river has risen about
four feet, and is still rising."
The Boonville (Mo.) Register of the
24th ult., says: During the past week
there has been an extraordinary rise in
the Missouri. Those who have lived
on its banks upwards of twenty-five '
years, say they have never before" seen
such a tremendous flood in January.
On last Thursday night and Friday :
morning, it rose upwards of 3 feet, and
is quite as high as it was during the last v
year, To all appearance, therefore,
navigation on the Missouri is open for
the coming year.. K N. O. Tropic,
enlistment of A liens. A Marine
named Thos. Kimbcrlin, a native of
England, was brought up on a writ of
habeas corpus, in New York, a day or
two since, and his discharge from the
Marine corps demanded, on the ground
of his being an alien. The ground
being established, he was accordingly
discharged. The recruiting officers ut
our military and naval rendezvous will
have to be more cautious in future who
they enlist. It will save trouble, and "
