FRIDAY MORXIXG DECEMBER 7 1835
Mc. Wjse ad the PaEsiDSXCY. Mr. Wise
has written a letter to a friend in Virginia, in
the course of which he says:
The idea of the presidency, has' not been al
lowed to enter my bead. .Theirtm has not pier
ced my heart. I know how ft impairs a public
man'a usefulness to make such an imputation
upon his aspirations. Did the Sentinel so in
tend! It looks very mui;h hk as if its feara
were father to its thoughts. I can say on that
subject, that I mean to keep the even tenor of
my 'Way, without fear, favor or affection. If the
Democracy would be guided by me, I can find
nnndred m:n whom I preter lor tne presi
de nyself. I can find two, at least in
VirwL.,. f - '-w of very well. But if
the Demofv
cirain unite Uw eiter Tr-mw.-
they will unitef on mi, I can only suy that I
will a la mode Jackson f rvchtly and l efTccWal
ly ru'e Black Repubticanism; I will rule them!
But the idea of ruling them or not rulin ? them
sha!l not turn me a hair's bredth from my own
convictions 'as tV 'what my- duty as a 'patriot re
quhvs. ' I will write, speak, a:t as I think right
and leave the consequences ' to-' God and -tlie
countrj,' wi hout thinking of the PresHlency."

part in.ihty memorable recurrences of the strug
jf'e fur American Independence. Her huiband
l Glib rt Martin WaS a eergea'at in the army', of

-Mrs.-Martin represents tlieistrugglo as most
terrific. v She says that towards evening, when
Bufgoyne maddened by tho consciousness that
h's splendid schemes were abf-ut to be defeated
directed his whole reserye and cavalry force up
on the feeble army of the patriots, the contest-
ants stood within half musket
range
of each
other, and pored in their deadly volleys, while
whole files on either side fell in their tracks,
and neither gave one inch. '-: V:

the shou'der, and while h'n wife was in the act
of affixing aband.tg2.' she herself was wounded
in the hind; she says "Gilbert- sprung like an

Of such ma.erial were the men and women
of ihe R volution.
We can readily imagine that the field of Sar

Express heard narrated by the R vMr. Shaw,
a missionary recently from Santa Fe. He sta
ted that a child of a poor 'woman was refused
burial for four days because she could not . pay
the fees the priert demanded : for the perform
ance of the funeral ceremonies. , She appeaLd
to the United States officer in command at the
station, fcho informed the Bishop that if the child !
was not buried in twenty-four hours he wodld
break downjhe wa'ls of the cemetery and per-
form the ceremony himself; and on the Bishop s j
refusing to comply with his demand, he fal511ed
his word, by giving ihe chi'd Christian as well
as military burial. No marriage certificate could
be issued formerly unless a heavy gum was paid; ;
and in many instancts applicants had to submit ;
to the degradation of voluntary becoming peons
slaves -ifcit a spectfied p tiod, in order to ac-"j
q ire. the money to purchase the right to marry.
Our missionaries there are doing go?d work
iu making that people acquainted with their truj
rights and privileges under the laws of the Uni-
