The Vesperus will interfere with no Sectarian or Political matter, nor will any thing o'' an immoral tendency ever find a place in its columns. It will be connected with no other American Publication; will contain no advertisements, but on the con trsry be filled with the choicest original & selected matter. The National tnsle has become so re filled that nothing of an inferior can en sure patronage ; and in order, therefore, to compass so desirable an object as the publication of n book chiefly devoted to light and humorous reading, at the same time a high moral tone throughout, the proprietor hns embarked on a hazardous undertaking, solely relying on the superi or character of the work for an extensive sale which alone can renumerate him r r the pecuniary risk. It is estimated that upwards of $1500 will be expended on the work in. one ear for Engravings alone. TERMS- The Vpsperus will be printed on fine white paper, with beautiful nw type, in the quarto form expressly for binding.

While dir.er cruiaren were happy in the smiles of their par ents, her sweet little Mary would climb upon her knee and with ac cents that rend a mother's heart, ask if her father would not return But month alter month wasted awav sea son alter season rolled on, until four- teen years had been added to the con gregated centuries of the past, yet no tidings of captain P., no, not even a probable cojecture concerning the dark misteries of his fate. Time, that changes all things, had worn away the acuteness of Mrs. Pot- ter's grief, which was farmore intense than it would have been had she wept at his grave, and known that the last moments of her husband had been soothed by aflection. As the last voy- age of the captain seemed to be to the unknown coast, she was called the widow Potter. Having a splendid mansion and a eountry seat of great -value, her hand was sought by many, and as often rejected, until a bachelor: who had resisted the charmes of wo-, men kind for A quarter of a fcenturyi -was smif Jen with the JovJiness of the worthy matron, or with the comeli ness of her possessions. She at length consented that her name should be changed to Morane. The bridal day was appointed; the arrangements were made to greet the coming peri od with due festivity. Late in the afternoon of a cold stor my day in November, a penniless beg gar called at a neighboring house, and enquired if the widow Potter liw cd in this part of the city. His up- " pearance denoted extreme poverty; his emaciated form was reduced to . skeleton ; his cheeks were deeply fur' rowed, and his tottering frame seemed to be stiffened in every joint, by dis ease and hardships ; yet there was something in his eye that told he was born to a better fortune. 4 Yes' says his informant, 'at the very nevt door, and to-nignt she is to be married.' ' 'Is to be married ?' says the beggar; how long has her husband beendead?' 'These many long years ; he went off to sea and has not been heaxdrDf B'mce.' ! j 'How has she sustained herself since her husband's death?' ' 'She has an unblemished character 'Has she any children?' ' 'One daughter, who has become a fine young lady.' , pet?. I must see her before she is mar ried; 1 have some communication of importance to make.' . So saying, he hurried as fast as his (From the Charleston Observer.) THE SEA CAPTAIN'S RETURN Captain Potter, of Nevvnort Rhode Island, was a wealthy and amiable ! feDle limbs would carry him to the . - r. i iii n i rrt gentleman, whose family consisted of a wife, who was the pa tern of virtue, and one daughter, who, though very young, exhibited the polished beauty of her mother, and the vivacity of her father. As he was much experienc ed in the business of a sea captain, he was offered the command of a vessel, which promised great advantage, and with great reluctance he left his ami able wife and child once more. The voyage once completed, cap tain P. determined to renounce the faithless deep forever, for the quiet of hi own fireside. Previous to his de partue.he took a gold ring from the , splendid dwelling of the widow. The maid in attendance being summoned, and steing a beggar before h r, was about to close the door against him; but the stranger interrupted her by saying: 5 'Madam, may ft begr.ar be permit ted to see the widow Potter?' We expect company to-night, an swered the girl, 'and therefore yoti must leave immediately.' 'The widow Potter,! I roust see,' rejoined the beggar, interrupting her. The maid, who would have been glad to dismiss her unsightly: guest at this jucnture, began to be somewhat.
