Oh! the while tea gull, the wild sea gull
A joyful bird ia ho, '4
As lioliei like a cradled thing at rest
Iu the orm of a tunny tea!
The littlo waves rock to and fro,
A nd f ia white cull lies asleep. '
Ai tho fisher's bark, with breczo ami tide,
Goes merrily over the deep.
The ship, with her fair sails set, goes by,
And her people stand to note,
How the seagull sits 011 tho rocking waves '
As still an anchored boai.
The sea it fresh, the sea is fair,
And the sky aim overheard,
And tlio BCH gull lies on the deep, deep sea.
Like a king in his to) al bed !
Dli! tho white sea-gull, tho b;JJ seagull, .'
A joyful bint ia lie,
Sitting, like a king, in calm repose
On the breast of the heaving sea!
The waves leap up, tho wild wind blows,
And the glfds together rrowd, .
And wheel about, and madly screnm
To tho sea that is roaring loud ;-
And let ihf sea roar ever so hind,
And tho winds pipe ever so high,
With a wilder joy ihe bold seagull
Scndeth forth a wilder cry.
For the sea-gull ho is a daring bird,
And he lovea with the storm to snil ;
To ride io the strengtli of the billow y sea ;
And to brenst tho driving gale!
The little boat she is tossed about,
Like a sea-weed to and fro ;
Tho tall ship reels like a drunken man,
As tho eustv tempests blow.
'But thosen-gull laughs, at tho pride of man,
Like a foam cloud culm and white,
Tko waves may rage, the wuuls may roar,
But he fears not wreck nor nect',
For ho rides the sea in its stormy strength,
As a strong man rides his steud.
Oh! the white sea-gall, the btld sea gull,
He makes on the shore his nct
And he tries wht the inland fields may he;
Hut lie lovcuiti.c sen ine nest,
And away from land a thousand leagues
lie coos mid lurciM foam; 1
AVIfat matter to him is land or shore,
And away lo the north Wg he-rocks fcr,
To a sent dial is lone nnd desolate,
Will the wanton sea-gull go.
For hocarolh not for the winter wild,
Nor those dcsert-reirions chid :
. O . " I
In the midst of the cold ue'joti rahn, blue pen,
Tho sea-nnll tmth his will
And the!deud whale lies on tho northern
And ihe sal and the aa-hore grim.
And ihe death oflhegreatsea-cri-auiremake!
A full, merry fuaet for him.
Oh ! tho wild cn-gul!, the bold sea-Riill
As he screams in his wheeling flight:
As ho sit on ihe waves in storm or calm,
All cometh to him nright!
All cometh to him as ha liketh best,
Nor any his will cainsav s
And ho rides on the waves hko a bold onnt
That was crowned but ves'erdav!
Tho ;n, isns.

My name is fcamucl talker. 1 was
born in the cily of New York in the year
XBia; my parents were ricn ana won to
do in tho world. I was educated for a
lawyer, but did not choose to finish my
'education, sol ran a way horn home, in
tho year 1821, and came to tho western
pountry, where my principal theatre of nc-
i tion was laid. .Nothing of importance
occurred tome till 1 reached Cincinnati,
where I became acquainted with a great
V.many river characters-boys like myself
vkho porsuaded mo to go on the liver with
'then?, I did so.and immediately went as
cabin'J)oy,on, the old steamboat Calado-
, , nin, confimandcd by John Hussell. In this
manner, though not tho most respectable
occupation in the world, I made my living
for come six or eight months, getting a
salaryof six, seven and eight dollars per
monVb.--Being what is called a pretty
smart boy, 1 thought that was too Iittlo for
m to have, and so I came to the conclu-
feion to bo better paid, by helping myself
iromiuQ passemjers pocKtns, wnen tney
were asieep. i no ursi unnrr i aid 0j tins
kind, was robbing a gentleman of his
pocket book on board the old Feliciana,
' wharf; to which bont I th-sn bolongcd.
This circumstance I supposj the public
ho never beforo known.
The next thing I had a hand in, was in
robbing a flat boatmen of about seven or
viguiuuuuicuuviiaisduu u Krciuiimniny
, of Jewelry. - This was done on the Love
in new vnudiis suuruy aner i icit me
Feliciana. A short time after the robbery
I went to Natchez, where I robbed seve
ral persons.' 1 then left there and wennfair. hr
lit : ! ...I t.-LI. -J H '
to Memphis, where I lobbed a passenger
on the old Uncle Sam. 1 then left M?r"
phis and went to Louisville whoiti
for, very near three year? ' withor
any thing but rob hula I'JIrcr
money when, they had been r
--,V rants. ; 'V'" 4 :'f.-
Duringthe stay in this place,"'
acquainted with Geo. Lovet;,
Hoover and Thompson, wha L
since been hung, and commit
them, at different times, the folio L
, predations, viz: In the first place v .
shipped On board a flat boat, bound kr
New Orleans, for. which we were to get
entyfive dollars a piece. All things
went tolerably well on board of her, till
, , tre got between Paducah and the mouthj
. , ol tho Unto between wmcn places, we
killed the owner of the boat uVtd his broth-
er. ' Wc threw thorn loth tJTcrb&rd, run
tlto bout to Memphis where wo frold our
cargo and bout, for which we got $1,374
which we divided among tour of us xu:
Lovett, Jones and Thompson and myself
so each having $1,003,60 cents a piece
we concluded lo go 10 New Orleans so
we got on board the old Cinciiinutiati and
went to New Orleans. -At this place we
tituid nearly nil winter, arfd all wo done
was kill ono man, back ormothcr Gor
don's big house, on Girurd street, and al
so buried him there. This was in the
year 1830; I being 18 ycnis of nge, and
having; committed so many depredation?, 1
was highly ; honored by tho honorable
boasd ol common scoundrels, rouben and
murderers. They all snid I was a smart
hoy, a great mar ami that if ever 1 was
their pro
fession. S), with all of theso inducements
I continued in their profession. '
1 ho ncftl thing I did, wa3to kill a man
over tho river opposite New Orleans, mid
robbed htm of $1 1,01)0, in United States
Louisiana and Vjw York money. 1 Ins
was in tho month of March, 1831. After
this, 1 got on tluj old steamer Farmer, and
weritt Lnnsville; and from thenco to
Whoclini;, V n., where! robiie 1 a man of a
horse, and $500, and mile back to Mariet
ta, where 1 sold rny horse for $7o. I
then got oti tho steamer Statesman, Capt.
torsyth, and robbed tho clerks drawer of
11 gontlemVs luxik of $120, and
""other of his pi.sto3 and trunk, and then
went ashore at Oallipolis. I rom there,
I siolu another Iiur3' from a Mr. Here

robbed tho Exchange Hotel drawer of
seventy-three dollars. G it on my horse

I shall give an neconr.l bow wo worlttiJ

men, from captain to the meanest st uion
on u steam boat, may learn to shun all
bad piactices and also I hope it may put
owners on theirguard in tho first place
to inquire- into tho character of every
commander fn steamboat, with the strin
test scrutiny; also to commanders ot steam
boats, 1 woulJ say, bo careful who yon
hire for any situation whatever even to a
fireman; for if I choose todiscloso their
names, peoplo who are now highly Imn-
ored and respected by all who know the

this is not gomgk on with what concerns
mc, for 1 know that my time in this world
is hut short so to goon with my story. ,
Directlv after tho Galenian left Louis
Jville, I was watching nil the passengers to
see who had money and who had not.
Amongst tho rest I observed an aged gen-
tleman, with about $000 in his trunk;
he came to mo nnd said steward, if von
will put rny trunk iu my stato room 1 will
give von a dollar; certainly says 1, und
immediately did so. After wo rot in the
state room, from amongst the passengers
1 inquired ofhim whero he wentushore nt.
lie told mo that he got out at Smithland;
sol was determined that ho should not
carry his trunk ashore with nil that mo-
mey in it, nor; yetnnyof it. So knowing
that we would reach Smithland bv da,
light in the morning, I intended $o, take it
that night when he was asleep; and about
12 oVlock, I went into the door nnd there
I found Cant. Dix robbincr ihft' inmh
Says, I hold on captain, that's y game--
and I see plainly ut is yours; so lets di

bed where the old man Inyjl saw tho blood
gushing from his heart, a'nd a dagger ly.
if you.aremy friend, and ihig is your game
only stick with mo and I will make your

this old son of a b ch in tho river. So
opened the window I cot ou the out-

A short time after, he c'ntno lack to
Louisville, und 1 think, he bur not been
away from it since, lie still boarded ut
Mrs Carroll's, till last summer; whet! he
removed to tho Gull liotiso to board. 1
was boarding, (under another name,which
I shall not disclose, for rouson's that I
have within my breast concerning n young
lady nt the Lauisvilla 7otel,) ohd lived
nn honest life, till last fall when he came
to mo one day, and told me ho was out of
money, and in debt greatly for instance,
tho last ten days ho had received thrco
letters from his wife, nnd that he wanted
to go home, nnd sco her. But, says he,
I'll blow my brains to the devil, before I
will go there without plimty of money. 1
have a plan laid to get somo considerable
quuntity, if you will assist mc in it. Says
I, certainly I will and accordingly, the
fdlo.vmg plan was laid: lie told me that
I was to eorno to the 'Galt houso at 12
o'clock, tho day 3Ir. t'arker was murdered
by him: Accordingly 1 did so. Now
says he, I nnvnequuiuted nnd slightly re
lated with Parker, tha clerk of tho Me
chanic' Savings Institution, and can get
admission ut any time. Now says he,
give mc your u i r It . 1 told mm 1 had i
weapen with me, never wore them. Says
he, I have got a pistol' that will do the
business for him; so ho went away and
got one. Ho then came buck, and just as
he did a young man whom ho called Ju
lius or Julian, went from the bunk, him
and 1 standing together at the lamp post
oi'Lvnch'd Garden he left mc, and went
to toe window o the Hank, us 1 came
from it. Julian sai I to him, lire you pot
going to dinner IN o says hoi do pot
feel like eating. Julian went on and he
came back to me, and said that 1 must
wait till I saw Julian come ba-k and
then come by the door und whistle Yan
kee Doodle. Ue then went to tho bank
door, nnd I crossed tho street to tho cor
nor of l'eaii street, and so down as far as
Maxwell's bookstore. 1 then saw Julian
returning to the bank walking fast; got
uhend ofhim, nnd went past the door and
i ;i i i- . . i
wnisucu according to promise; nnu so
passed on to tho corner, nnd kept skulking
h boii t nil thealarm was raised by Julian.
I then left the spot immediately, nnd
went to tho liver, where 1 staid till 1
heard that Dix had killed himself, nnd
then wont homo and changed mv clothes
pvt on false whiskers, and went along te-
tho brink, and in the crowd 1 robbed anion
of his hankercbiefand pocket book, con
taining $1500 in Kentucky money. This
was n young man who had on tin old grea
sy white hat, broad brim, Kentucky Jeans
coat, striped cassinet pantaloons, and
check short. The pocket book was all
tore in a Ft rait piece, nnd had G. E. II.
of New York, written in it. The reason
why 1 so minutely describe him is because
hi- money lays buried near Mill creek
bridge, under n little house cell first and
last retreat in Cincinnati.
My lift is now nt an end; and P have
but u few moments to live; therefore, my
young companions,! would Bsk of you
