And as you are so anxious ta kr.ow the cause. I will now make you ac- Viti.!-d with the whole surj-'Ct, by giving ) -a the history of th l ross bush. Yo a are yo nig, and know but little of f t:r p,ii. history, yet you may recollect some ci the circumstances I am about to narrate. That ros-i bush was planted by your fath er on oar bridal diy. Your grandfither w' th n living. Yu remember when he J -J. and was burri-d in the ground b ick of ihio'd church. I resided at home, and we ere all happy. Your father was a young mechanic, industrious, intelligent, and come 'y. He wis cs he now is, a house carpen- fr, ar.J bffire we were married, his hands fcii reared this little cottage, which was new and every way pleasant Your -hr was then thought to be one of the ttt l.kely young men in town; und when we we re married, we were pronounced the Oit happy and promising couple that had ?fa joined ky the parish minister for a fc'Jber of years. Ve were married in the spring of 1830. turteprt years ago last spring. On the rnir.r of our weeding day, your father pliritpj that rose bush, and called it "our bridal rose bash!" The house and yard Wer all then in repair, and ready for our Tpl on ; and though we were not rich, t we were happy. This house, and the JnJ cn which it stands, was all that your owned beside his tools. I had receiv J"nU2h from my father's resources to fur- oar little cottage, and make us comfor Those were bright days, for we ,;e'e.not'on,y nappy in our present condi--ar, hoP P'omised higely for time to -; oor did we dream that davs of dark- wereonsar. Your father ctltiiatfd the rcse bnshiwith th( greatest care, and for three sucefssive seasons it bloomed, and transcended in beau ty all the rose bushes in the neighborhood Other flowers were scattered around our humble, yet happy dwelling. Each spring pased with rich and beautiful treasures, and with j ys and songs. But dark at;d cloudy seasons were at hand ! Your fither, I have said, was a smart and active mechanic, and it was customary in those days to furnish spirit for mechanics, and an impression prevailed that tlm more freely they were served with spirit, the more labor they would perform. It was thought no harm to diiuk moderately, and f-Vf-n rhiirrh mornhprs ivmilj hat K nnrl drink, and sometimes ministers ivould take a jlas. i remember to have heard our old rninistt-r say, when asked to sin the temperance pledge, that he had no occasion for thai, as he thought himself in no danger of becoming a drunkard, and he did not f-el himself bound to refrain from an occasion, al glass wht n it was beneficial to him, be cause some others made a bad use of it You micrhtas well, said he, require me to sign a pledge not to use money, for some mike as hid use of money aj they do of spirit. Your f ither at this time had ac q-iiredan nppc'ite fir sirong drink ; b it hav. ingj l-t wi'ness'd the f -arfu! death of a fel low workman from drunkenness. I think he would have signed the pledge under the in fluence of a powerful address, delivered in the place, had they not calltd on the minis ter fits', who replied as rbove. This ar-j giimeni e.t tne minister settiea nts mina ; lor though he loved spirit, and Mt that it did him gooJ, he had not the least idra that he wa in u uiger of becoming a drunkard! From this time he would not listen to a word about signing ihe temperance pledge, and his habit of drinkiug very rapidly grew upon him. He soon became negligent in his business, and when circumstances threw him out of his iegu!ar bus nes lor a diy. instea-J 0 ne w instead of impro.iug it at home, as former- ould spend it in a neighboring bar room. I he tavern was then kept by Mr. Jones, with whom your fuher became very intimate; insomuch that he spent most of his leisure hours in his society. I b-rame alarmed, and did all I could to reclaim him from what I considered his errors. Hopf would cling to my heait, and I could not really believe that he would become a drun katd. yet I coul I see that rapi t change was passing upon him. His temper was sour ; his habit, in the morning, was f verish jnd irritable: ; at night, he often appeared dull anil incommunicable ; and it was pi. tin that the rose that flourihti in the yard, being neglected, beoan to flourish, with unna'nrnl stimulus, on his cheeks. Still I had never seen him drunk, but my apprehensions were dreadful I Sometimes hope would seem to die within me, and 1 won id fancy myself the wifo of a drunkard, and see all the wretchedness that drunkenness brings with it ; but again hope won d revive, and 1 would think that 1 should scape the dread ful calamity. Tims rolled on. Your father more and more neglected his business, began to be out late at night, and even leant b gin to s'are me in the fce. Many a 1 nely even ing did I spend over a fevv slumbering em bers, until ten or eleven, and even twelve oVlock, wailing for yoor !aher's return. On- night, when it was dark and stormy in November your father had been out : ever since morning, l in eaten me last morsel for dinner, but h.p.' far a supply, as your father had gone to collect a small demand with which he deiignd to purchase provisions iMght approacneu, ana he came not; the shadows of a dark and cold ! November evening closed around me, des titute of a supper, and with but a few small sticks of wood. You was then about f U' years o d, and a hard time I had to make you satisfied with a suppar consisting of nothing but a small dish of milk. But soon you forgot your troubles in sleep. Not so with me. I sat up alone to deplore my condition, and to weep over it. I thought in the fore part of the evening I would go to some of the neighbors ; and then aain to do this without giving the reason of my vis it, would appear str; nge, and my hea t was yet too proud to make my condition known. Hour af:er hour passed slowly away. I started at the sound of every passing footstep but to my mortification they all p issed by. The town clock had just struck eleven my wood was consumed, and 1 was stung with the deepst anguish, as I found myself thus deserted and destitute. Suddenly I heard a noise at the door, and my heart leaped with in me! I hastened to open it, when tshali never forget the f.-elings of that moment vour father fell his full length upon the floor, covered with mud, his face b!oody,and spec h less. I will not attempt to describe my alarm, I might say my fright, I soon found, however that the blood was from a very slight injury of the face, caused by fil ling; and the mud you can account for. when I tell you he was helplessly druukl J -I I was unable to remove him to the bed ; and I hence, I placed a pillow under his head and covered him up where he was. To me it was a sleepless night. He slept upon the floor till daylight. The facts in the case were, he had collected the debt he went af ter, and called at the tavern mingled in company with bar-room friends got drunk lost all the money with which he was to SATURDAY, MARCH 9, 1844. procured some provision, and about eleven o'clock was turned out into the storm to get home as he could or perish : end after per forming, I know not how many sorr.mersets, he reached home as above described.

Time passed on one drunkard after an other went to a dishonored grave; but your fither still lived, and I failed nottooflV.r dai ly prayer to God with tears, that I might once more embrace him sober and in his right mind. bout three years ago, a Washingtonian temperance lecturer came into the place, and many went to hear htm. Amonr the rest I went. The bouse was full, and he commenced his lecture by stating that he hadbena drunkard, one of the most de graded sort of drunkards, that he had been given upas a hopeless case, by Dot only all his friends but by himself by his oft a busd yet ever patient and affectionate wife; and woman's hope, said he, is last to fail; and at that word i felt a ray of light dartja cross my own dark and almost desponding soul He stated that the cases of confirmed diunkards had been considered hopeless, but that under the new temperance dispen sation of Wa-hingtonianism, it had been proved that the worst of drunkards could be savtd. At this I Aa started at the sound of my own voice, as I said, not knowing what ldid,"0 that James Hanson was heie to hear that," and I put my hand upon my breast in vain attempt to silence my heart, which appeared as though it vvi uld leap from its confinement. The lecturer pro ceeded, and gave an account of his degrada tion and that of his family, and how he re covered himself through the influence of some Washingtonian friends; how health, peace, pi- nty and happiness had returned to himselfand family. Dming this drscrip tion f himself, of his fall, and of his reform ation, I endured a dreadful conflict of feel- I ing; it was with difficulty that I could re-j ! fiain from weeping aloud, and more than j once l was on the point of repeating the ",jh Tames Hanson could hoar that. as something was said which I itiought would touch his case; hut caution came to my relief, so that 1 believe I did not speak a second time so as to be heard. The spea ker closed by saying that it was the simple pledge of totil abstinence that had saved him, and then called upon all, and drunk- j ards in paiticular, to come forward and sign the pledge which had done so much for him. One after another came forward and pla ced his name upon ihe paper, some of whom were among the most sober in town, while others were drunkards. I saw several whom I knew to be among the com .'anions of your flther in drunkenn. s?, and l' felt as though I would have given the world, had I possessed it, to have had your fither thee. It appeared to me, that had he been present. his heart hard as it was, vould have melted j and that he would have been redeemed that night. Some little confusion was caused in the congregation, by so many coining forward from their seats to sign the pledge, and a number wpre standing ahout the table, so that I had been unable for some minutes, to see who came forward. The people be came excited, and began to clap when any considerable drunkard came forward, pro nouncing his name aloud. I had almost forgotten myself, my mind had wandered frnm the scene before me, and was occupied with thoughts of other days, of both joys and sorrows, the intensity of my feelings had passed away, and I had settled down into that melancholly stale which made me feel as though I were the only person in the world, even amid the shouts and clapping with which I was sur rounded, when suddenly I was electrifi-d and brought upon ray feet as by a galvanic battery, at the cry of "Hanson! Hanson!" which was shouted at the top of a dozen voi ces Owinjz to the press of people between me and the table, it was not until your fath- lerhad placed his naraeon the paper, mat i ... .

There were not wanting other friends to mingle in the joy. But I must close my story.

If you, dear Susan, had passed throngh the scenes that I have, you would not won der that the mention of the roses upon that bush should cause a tear. 1 hope you will never forget this story, and as you grow older, shun the company of those who make the most moderate use of intoxicatingdrinks, as you would shun your own ruin. From ihe New York Tribane. PRICES UNDER THE PRESENT TARIFF. Hon Andrew Kennedy, M C. from la. Sir: You recollect that on the 20th ult I was in attendance on a meeting of the Post Office Committee of the House of which you are a member, and that ynn therein re marked mat "the present Tariff was a great injury to the West than even ihe South, as it reduced the price of every thing the Wtst had to sell, and increased that of every thing that section had to buy." As this assertion appeared to me monstrously incon sistent with the truth, I ventured to ask j'nu what articles bought by the West had been so enhanced in price by the laiui. Y ou promptly answered 'Every thing? 1 stiil . ... demurred that my own previous inform ation had been strongly adverse to this statement. and therefore begged you to namesojne one article whioh h thus been made di aiei. You hesitated a moment, and remaiked that Salt had bem enhanced in cost to the West one hundred per cent, since the Tariff pass ed." As you were in your own official room, and I only t ere ou sufference, I felt that I could not courteously persist in disputing the . j ,.- - ; O correctness of your information; so I let the matter drop. As soon, however, as I bad returned next day to New York, I addiess ed a iettei to a most reliable and intelligent Indianian, a citizen of South Bend, St Jo seph's County, but spending the L-gislative Session at Indianapolis, stating to him the substance of this conversation, and asking him to furnish me, as soon and as full as possible, a statement of the prices, in the mar ket of Indiana of all the staple articles im ported by that State, on which a Protective Duty had been imposed by the Tariff of 1842 , ascertaining the price of each on the lstof January, 1842, and the same date of 1 844, respectively. His reply, just received, is as follows : Indianapolis, Jan. 30th, 1844. Dear Sir : Herewith you will find the items you wish at three different points, which I hone will prove satisfactory. I am . . l r , , . honor for their truth : and if vou wish the prices at V incens and if vou wish the prices at Vincens and j New Albany, which, conversation wiih their Senators convinces me would be of a similar tenor with ihe others, I can obtain them for you by writing thereto. ..i ii. f ..,, s,fff. l At INDIANAPOLIS, te j I have the following given me by Alfred Harrison, the leading merchant in this city: Jan 1842.
