Philadelphia, July 2J, 1m53.
Messrs. Editors This city of bro:herly love
is not the busy, noisy, rattling place that iVw
York is: but much more auiet. derinune huH
quakerly. No slreet, nor hotel is thron-ul wi'h
vast multitudes of strangers from every clime
visiting for pleasure or business, as are those of
New York; no houses actually open and buv
every minute of the day and night; but all
things seem to go on smoothly and pleasantly.
Nor Jo the Phiiadelphiaits wear the euer, unea
sy, restless look of the New Yorkers; nor do
they walk or run all the time, as if a goad were
behind, or a penny just ahead. For those w ho
seek pleasure, unruffled and unostentatious
without glare or hustle, this is the place. It's
not so brilliant or splendid here, nor is it sodark
and gloomy, not the extreme contrast of mighty
wealth, and weak and tottering poverty a kind
und durcd mediocritas Statistics show that
with thousands fewer inhabitants there are
thousands more houses; the palpable inference
Irom which, is, that the poorer and working
classes of Philadelphia have more and better
roofs beneath which to rest. In ope house in
New York, then; are sixty-four families or up
watjs, containing seven hundred persons, or
more, and there are many o'diers, w ith proper
donate number. Here also, in most of the city,
the inches of ground are not counted, but porte
coes and gardens surround the dwellings. In
New York, a space on Broadway ot 35 feet front,
and 150 back, will sell for 8150 OftO ; and some
of the lots for $300,000. And this may well be,
for some houses rent tor G0,lX)0, und, that easi
ly, w hen divided into office. Of course, such
is not the case in this city of thee und thou,''
where greedy avarice has not as yet a permanent
abode. Indeed, every thing here, is better suited
to give quiet and unassuming enjoyment ; and to
satisfy a moderate ambition or a laudable desire
forweslih. Every thing, though a little sober
looking, and every body . though a little too saint
like, wear the pleasing aspect of peace, plenty,
prosperity and happiness. The Paiks in the
heart ot the city, are beaut iful, with their carpets
of green grass, and w ith large and stalely trees,
over which may be seen hundreds of gray and
white squirrels, sporting in conscious securiiy,
peering with timid eye at '.he promenaders, fear
less of the bold and steady stare of man. There
arc in these Parks or square.1: fountains dash
ing up their Slight waters ; an I seats for thoe
who, tire I of walking, desire rest. 'Tisa lovelv
spectacle, an 1 so novel and unexpected M to
strike the strang-r with an agwaMe and Jeii0ht
ful surprise. The are called " i!c b igc .4 the
city," and promote its health by purifying the
air, inducing healthful and frequent exert i.-e. A
lore! v promenade lor lovers, a place " to wooed
be um," when' many gen'le tale of kindly affec
tion has bevii whispered ; where many a tender
heart has yielded its swetest lucense. How i
dew w:sh I had some lovely creetur with
some two kind- i;s. and some two kinder eyes
and some one kinder heart, just to icaik with in
that place. 1 wonder if oue on ye wont say.
imeu" "or SO mote it be." Aud there are
nandsome women here, wim trie rose
of health blushing on their cheeks, heal
strong an t vigorous, and apparently never need
ing the " pills, powders or liquids' of th re
noimed physicians, wdio live here. Yet, neither
here nor elsewhere in the north, have they the
elastic stept, delicate, yet perfect simmeiry ot
form. Whew! These we like a heap; but
those we love, oh sich a sight. I will trespass
no longer, but bid you a good night &c.
From the Mbi!e Tribune.
" WHAT WILL THEY SAY ?"
BY JULIA MILDRED HARKIsS.
" What will they say7"' They will say what
they please. If you do wrong, some will say you
do right, and if you do right, some will say you
do wrong. Truth to one is not truth to all, for
every one sees through the spectacles of a partic
ular prejudice. Do not be a weak rush wavering
between breees. Be a strong rock to turn aside
the striking winds. We scorn the loitering
coward who yawns at each corner, bows o every
"yes," dodges every "no," od whines "what
will they say?" I know whaWiey ought to say
that your grandmamafeused you with the
frogs, and nod among the mushronms when you
are tired. We respect the man who stands proud
and firm, as though he was contemplating the
sun the man whose step seems a command
the man who has martial metal in him.
'What will they say?" Let ihem say what they
plase. Show them that you are on an equilibrum
that the world and nothing in it can unbal
ance you. Give them an equal answer and they
w ill soon be oblique. We do not like an elastic
mark : it shifts the shaft back into our own
bosoms. " What will they say ?" they will say
what they please; but remember that slander
slips in her own slime, and that virtue is always
virtue. Virtue that cannot stand on temptation
and not totter is a sham. Gold is not proved
until it is purged.
Do not be a coward and hide yourselt away
under the shadows of fear, because "they will
say." Pooh arise! soar up, aud, alike the ea
gle, strengthen with the storm. Would light-
ning-winged-Genus leap proud Pacnassus, if he
paused to ask, "what will they say?" Would
a lost world be redeemed if Jesus had said " my
disciples what will the people say ?"
Let them say What '.hey please ; their empty
words will fall as aimless as paper balls, if you
do this. Twine love around your heart : clap
charity to jour bosom : centre your eye on eter
nal truth : go by conscience, and let conscience
go by God.

CiiiLur.K.v and Bachelors. The local man of
the Albanv Knickerbtcker soliloquizes as follows
about childhood and bachelorhood :
" Oh that we were a boy again !" Bless their
tear little hearts, how we love children. We
ilways let them have fWir own way, unless they
pull tVe cat's tail an I torture dumb creatures,
su"h as pulling the legs and w ings off of flies,
-ealiu roafeottoaary, and poking straws in
heir m uhe-"s ear when she is stealing a nap.
vVe naves cold them for making mud pies or not
keeping their uoses clean, for we recollect when
we were a child our's used to have its own way.

happy mo men is passed in earlv manhood, but

An dd bachelor is a poor, forsaken, unprovi
ded tor creature. No voung vines sprout at its
roots, and no grapesare gathered from its branch
's H ' ut;s. toils and sweats for himself alone
nd nobody else. He returns a,t eve to his soli
tary abode and no smiling angel says: " My dear,
where have you staid so long?" No lisping
children climb his knee, and with cherub tones
beseei h daddy for them thugarkitheth." He
oleeps cold in winter for want of a comforter
nnd his sumuiers.are ripe with false blossoms ol
hope. He is paying his addresses to solitary wo
through lite, finally to be wedded with the cold
sods of the valley. Poor, miserable bachelor.
Happy married man, with an angel for a wife
and a dozen of little cherubs.
Happily Krroasn. We learn from a reliable
source, that as a married couple were traveling
on a steamboat, bound from New Orleans to an
up stream port, the man sickeued and died.
When the boat touched at this point, the bereav
ed and distressed widow landed here with the
corpse, an undertaker was sent for, who came
ami took the measure for a coffin. The coffin
was prepared, the body deposited therein, and
all was in readiness to take the mortal remains
of that dear husband to its last, final resting
place. The lady, with all the fond affectiou and
deep love ol a wife, begged the privilege of ta
king one more look, a last parting kiss, on him
who was more dear to her than all others upon
earth. The lid was taken off, and as she laid
upon that cold, icy brow, bathing it in tears,
and smothering those cold icy lip6 with warm
kisses, a sort of consciousness and sympions of
life became apparent, the body was taken from
the coffin, and a physician sent for. Our tale is
soon told. The man soon became convalescent,
and but a few days since the happy couple took
passage from here on an up stream boat, nnd are
now en route for their place of destination.
But for that fond, loving wife, the husband
might now be lying in a cold, damp grave.
Gapes m Chickens. A correspondent of the
Plow, the Loom, and the Anvil, furnishes the
following communication for a late number of
"I propose from thirty years' experience to
give the cause and prevention of gapes. The
cause is found in the habit of keeping male chick
ens from year to year in the same flock of hens.
Theii successors are selected from the same flock
until the chickens become feeble, and 6ne of the
sad effects is ihe gapes. To effectually prevent
their occurrence, select males from a flock from
which there have not been erosses. Having re
moved all of your own, repeat this every year,
and my word for it you will not need a cute fox
gapes. The same is true of turkeys."
From the ('harleston Mercury.
The Pacific Railroad.
Among the most interesting indications of the
policy of the Administration which have been
disclosed during the tour to Nsw York, we place
the remarks of the Secretary of War end the
Secretary of the Treasury at I he reception in
Philadelphia. The Philadelphia American, wIiom
editor took part in the entertainment, in an arti
cle on the subject of a railroad to the Pacific says :
" The Government, through two of its princi
pal Secretaries, has declared in lavor of the un
dertaking as a work of national necessity, and it
has declared loo. in favor of Its being construc
ted, as a Government work, by the Government.
No constitutional difficulties are apprehended to
be in the way, no constitutional scruples appear
to be entertained ; the clause is designated con
ferring the power under which it can be nude ;
the surplus funds in the Treasury are pointed at
as available for the purpose, and as capable of
being apj.lie 1 more beneficially in this mode tlian
in ny other ; and, accordingly, we are juatined
in believing hatGen. Pierce has determined to
place the building of the Pacific railroad at the
head of the measures which are to constitute his
policy, and that he means lo aacure for his Ad
ministration the glory of commencing tha grand
est, as it is destined to prove the most btnefi
cent work of internal improvement ever atleip
icu oy numan nanus, it was in ms presence, aut
therefore assuredly, with his previous knowledge,
arid full concurrence, that Col. Davis and Mr.
Guthrie gave utterance to words on the subject
which, we are sure, will be read with one senti
ment of pleasure throughout the entire length
and breadth of the United States."
The plan here indicated, (continues the Mercury,)
it is well know to our readers, is the one which
this paper has always advocated from the com
mencement of the discussion in the Senate last
winter. We advocated the measure as one of
plain necessity to the protection of the Pacific
region, and its construction by the Government
as the constitutional and proper mode of reali
zing the object. We rejoice to see that the Ad
ministration has taken this view of a question
likely to have so great a place in the practical
politics of the next four years. Col. Davis
views are so exactly our own. so well expressed ,
and so significant of a settled policy, that we
quote them atome length.
The PaiDESt without a Shilling. The
Washington Star is responsible for the following:
Not long since, the President in an afternoon
ride w i th his estimable lady and a female friend,
was brought up by the gate upon the Columbia
Turnpike, on the opposite side of the Potomac.
His coachman searched his pocket3 in vain for
the requisite shilling. The President searched
his. But, alas, not a solitary shilling had they
among them ! The toll gatherer, who is at times
annoyed by the pranks of the " fast" folks pass
ing bis gate on their way to the trotting course ,
w ithout " holding up" to pay toll, began to
think of closing the bar upon the carriage, when
the driver informed him that the gentleman in
side was the Presi.lent of the IJni ted States, and
the Gentleman inside made it all right by prom
ising to pay the shilling when next he should
venture to ride on the Virginia side.
Budding or Inoculating
As the time for opeiation will soon be here.
we insert the following, which we copy from
Hendricks Work on Orcharding," and com
mend it to the attentiou of all desiring informa
tion on the subject, as about the best directions
that can be given, and if properly followed, will
result in uniform success. In cases of failure
the operator must blame himself, and not the
the directions :
"Inoculating is the operation of transferrin;;
any desirable variety of tree upon the stock of
an inferior w ild variety. The operation is prin
cipally practiced on small trees, and only during
the time the sap flows freely, and chiefly during
the months of August and September. Select
for the buds the ripest young twigs of the pres:
ent year, and cut off the leaves, leaving the
footstalk entire. Having selected ssmooth place
in the stock, make a perpendicular slit down
ward, quite through the bark, an inch or a little
more in length. Make a cross cut at the top of
this slit quite through to the wood, a little slant
ing downward; next, with the ivory haft of the
budding knife, raise the bark on both sides from
top to bottom, being very careful not to injure
in the least the cambium or sap wood. Next,
and with expedition, proceed to take off a bud.
This is effected by entering the knife a little
more than half an inch below the bud or eye,
quite through the bark, and separating the bark
from the wood to the same distance above the
eye, always leaving a Very thin slip of wood of
about one-third of the length of the bud ; this
thin slip of wood occupies the middle section of
its length. The bud is to be inserted in the
stock to the bottom of the slit, and between the
berk and Wood; and the top of the bud being
squared even with the cross cut, every part ex
cept the eye is firmly bound, and covered w ith
strong wet bass stnng or matting.''
(CjF Dan Russell the, self-nominated Can
didate. Anecdote-Dan, while amusing the "gov
ereigus" hare on Tuesday last, told a pretty story
inproof of his wondrous independence of C
ventions. The tale ran thus: Dsn locked him
self up in the Auditor's office at night, closed the
ponderous shutters, adjusted bars and drew bolts,
and being in the dark lit a candle. Dan theu
formed a convention, elected himself chairman,
nominated himself, and it was unanimously
agreed to! A huge laugh followed this ingeni
ous fiction ; but it came from those who did not
know that this same Hon. Dan. R. Russell was
regularly nominated in the Whig convention at
Jackson, as the candidate nj that party for And
itor oj Pvblic Accounts! ! and is now running,
and is advocated by the federal press as the whig
candidate. Let Democrats everywhere under
stand this fact, and not be cajoled by the clever
buffoonery of Mr. Russell from the support of
that estimable roan and 6tsrllng Democrat, Mad
ison McAfee, the republican candidate for Aud
itor. Eastern Carilon.
