Years rolled on; the sp; ing appeared fTr.tdii.iHir bright, the birds rooicid cn eve ry bou'TIi. all nature smiled to welcome the blithe Uoudtjs cispnng. iou had found new ties to bind him to ths earth; the houseless wanderer was now a daughter to him ; his interest in her was too strong a bond to be eajily broken. It was hard to leave the world now as in the cold and drea ry winter; age seemed but to strengthen the love of life, although youth was wither-, edand nature dying, yet -lire only, was his desire" Sprint passed, and summer with its mild and balmy air, visited the earth; --je maid en smiltd in gladness of heart, and the old remind in her haoniness, for she threw joy and bliss around, her happy laugh rung upon his far in wild merry peals as she n-t,.tw! th flight of ths cav butterfly, and her sweet sorgs rose upon the air as she tended her birds and watched the opening nfrsrhhiidtotne li-ht.

It was no time to die. Anftimn v It h it numle rrrace. and dow.- ny peach and pleasant nutting time, took the nlace of summer, and brought with it lightness and joyousness oi cool air ana dora of the oppressive heat, the liule maid en tripped through the dry leaves, and cha sed the fqiirrel with almost its o vn $wift ness : then throwing bick her sunny curls, she bounded to the sid,- of the old man, as he sat under the vines at his door, making glad his eyes with her bright ard happy fac and his heart grew joung again in her lightsoue joyous rnirth; both little thought of Death. Ths r&rth had cloihtd hetslf in a lobe of brown and dry leaves, and hid her self Irom the eye of -nan he seemed not lo wish for human company ia this her time of change. Winter arrain returned; again we see the old man sitting in his e?isy chair before the bright and glowing fire, but he is not the solitary being he was before, fo.- beside him is one in the firs: blush of youth and grace; she is no longer the gay and noisy child she 13 no leas happy ; but a deeper thought steals over her face, and a heavenly radianre sits upon her features, as she bends over the book from which, in accents of deep reve rence, she reads the word of God to the old man. What think they now of death? The faces of both look more restrained ; the Ho ly Spirit sheds its light upon the way which lead eth to the grave ; it no longer seems dark and lonely. The old man received the heavenly guest into a heart which had always been the residence ol kindness and charity. The maided now drooled daily, but he no longer thought it hard to give up life; and when the coid blast swept over the earth, and the robs ot snow envel oped it, with robes no less white, she was receiv ed into it bosm. Then I aked the old man, 'When is the time to die" "A holy calm was on his brow. An 1 peaceful was his breath ; And sweetly o'er his features stole A smile, a look divine; lie spoke the language ol his soul Wly Master's time is Mint!" . A WORD TO COTTON PLANTERS. The following sensible remarks, are ta ken from the New Orleans Bulletin. Without indulging in curious and inge nious speculations, to discover the cause which has so unfavorably afftcted the value of cotton, it must be apparent to any one w ho carefully reflects, that its present deteo riation is owing to the disproportion of the production to the demand. For several years the stocks have been accumulating, and they have now reached nearly one mii ion and a half of bales beyond the consump iii - i . i . i. . . Hon. 1 ne principal r oi cue slri'lis stock is of American growth, and notw iths standing this disparity between the supply and consumption, it is estimate! tnut the crocf the United States this year w ill ex ceed that cfihe preceding by at least 200 000 (two hundred thousand) biles As the world cannot make us of th quintity raistd.it requires no prophet to predict the result which must follow the continuance of the present too widely extended cuhiva iion of the article; yet the still worse eonse- qutneesofa greater increase of production are to be feared, unuss real measures are ii dopted to arrest it by convincing the plan ters cf the certain ruin which awaits them, should they not pause in their suicidal ca reer. There can be no doubt that tho true in terest of all concerned in tho traffic of Cot ton, will be promoted by guirding against the fluctuations which have so ol en proved disastrous and ruinous to the planter, the merchant and the manufactuier, as well as to the bold and enterprising speculator. Ef foits should be made to ensure a leady mar ket at steady and permanent prices. This can t usily be efivctcd if ihe planters will u nite heartily and honestly in reducing the cultivation to the right stindard or quantum for consumption, if the supply were regu. lattd so as not to exceed the wants of the manufacturers; thy would then beccmpell td to purchase the crops at a jast and la'.r value. The planters Leirg no longer at the mercy of chance would then calculate with accuracy the value e.f their crops, and eiOpt the ur.ee t iit;ly that has hitherto oc ,-.iioned jo mucn inconvenience1. In diminishing the quantity the planters -;il nnt ieduce their iucorr.es On the con trarythe-V vvill be able lo lay by, as an ac tual profit, more than thtir present gross income. To illustrate this a few facts will suffice: At the present prices cf cotton goods they will afford a handsome profit to the manu- .4irA OY'Ln chilli d h n.iv an average oi 0 cents per pound for the raw material, and to insure this price? n is oniy neces&aiy cur'ail the planting as before stated, so as to exceed the demand. 11 tnis oe uoue. the value will never fall sh. rt of the estima ted price. At 9 cents, the planters win re- alize nearly IUU per cent more iuu in current rates of the present season; or in other words, a crop ot 10U bales oi 4u ids each, at the price of 'this season (5 Mtj) it -. SV I fill IHI would amount u vvThi!t a cron of fiftv bales, at 9 cents, would yield "10.00 Thor won !d thus be a difference of only $210 00 between the value of 100 bales, at nr.cplt nrices. and what could be obtained for Afl.fthat quantity, ty a proper reduction Itivntinn. But it must be borne m mind, that in dis . . .1 . .... mnra nttrntinn rould mmisning me qu uiiiv , 1 nues of the planters. By :his method nearly one-half cf the labor 0 the soil would be left unemployed, at the c'isposa! of the planters, to be applied to other branches of agriculture, and other pursu'ts This would richly reward them. They could plant corn, to make their own pork, raise their own piovisions and grass es, rear sheep, cattle, &c. They might de vote some attention to the production of wool. They could establish simple and suitable looms, at which, in bid weather, the ne groes might vork, and manufacture their own clothing. In short, by such a system, the pi inters could defray the expenses of thtir planta. tions, and that nearly the whole proceeds of their CMton (amounting to more than their present income) might bo laid up as net p rofit. From the above plain statement a few re flections are naturally suggested viz : The present low price of Cotton is ruin ous to the planter, the factor, and the manu facturer, for the lasting prosperity of all three is closely and inseparably linked to gether. The profit of the manufactory at the expense of the planter can only be transitory. The cause of the diminution in the rate at which Cotton is sold, is the surplus pro duction over the demand. If the cultivation continues to increase, the price must fall still lower until the plan ters eventually become bankrupts. The remedy can be found only in an hon est and determined concert on the part of the planters to diminish the cultivation until the crop of cotton shall be reduced to the standard of consumption thus insuring a ready markttand a steady price of at least 9 cents. In growing less Cotton, the planter could improve its quality, and with the additional soil and force left at his disposal he could produce other articles. His income from the aiticle ot Cotton would lemam about the same, while he would be enabled to cre ate new revenue from oihei sources. It seems unnecessary to multiply words to impress all with the importance of bring ing about a concerted action, tending to the practical adoption of the measures necessary to realize the remedy proposed for rescuing the Cotton market from its present disas trous condition. In a future communica tion a few suggestions will be thrown out in relation to a mode cf operation, by which the desired results may be brought about at once. CINCINNATUS.

That he is an ardent Mason, we have had ample proof, that he is a perfict gentleman, we have the common constnt of the world Southron. Until then, ray private wbhes and feelings must bend to what may b? conceived will promote the public good. "The view yon have taken of the conduct pur sued by our government, relative to South A rnerica, in my opinion has been both just and proper, and will be approved ot by nine-tenths ot the nation. It is true it has been attempted to b? wiilJed by certain demagogues to the injury of the cdruinistration ; bjt, like all other base at tempts, has recoiled on its authors; and I am clearly cf your opinion that for the present, we ought to be content with the Flcridas fortify them, concentrate our population, confine our frontier to proper limits until our couniry, to those limits, is filled with a dense population ; it is the denseness of our population th?tgives strength and security to our frontier.

"J. Moni.oe, President United States." AN EXTRAORDINARY DOCU MENT The Foreign Poor in our Alms Houses, and the Foreign Criminals in our 2 enilenliiries -We hasten to lay befoieour readers, a highly interesting documet from a committee cf the Board of Aldermen, upon the subject of bonding alien passengers in New York. From the document; it appears, that the bonds of nine firms in this city cx hibit the enormous liabilities ol S I G.000.000 that of G02 children supported by the city, at the Farms School, 457 ate the chil dren (many, if not most of them, illegitimate) of foreign parents, that of the latest born in fants at nurse, at the city's expense, 3 2 are foreign, and only 2 American, and "that the whole number of children C2G have foreign parentage, and 193 American, ex hibitmg the average of more than three for eigners to one native, end an alarming in crease of the latio of foreigners in the m ore . receui uncos The whole nnmber of inmates in our Penitentiary is 13 10, shewing an increase of 400 since July last, cf these 333 are Americans, and 193 foreigners. The num ber of prisoners and paupers to support, we all pay taxes,.is 4314, thawing an increase since July last ot nearly 1000. In view of thtse alarming facts, and re membering that CO 000 emigrants were commuted and bonded here the last yea r, the Committee make some forcible appeals to the country, which cannot be n-iihout their fuel. The enormous taxation to which we are subject in order to support foreign pau pers and criminals is a great and grow ing evil, which presses heavily upon industry as well as upon the character, mor-ilj and politics r hoped, for a vtoment, ia get a mcjorily cf the rotes cf this St He, hxd nr.t his claims been based upon the assurance that he tea friendly to the cerlinvance cf the present tariff laics substantially as they stand.'' Here we have the most unequivocal dem ocratic testimony that Pennsylvania is em piratically for the TarilTas it is; and that Mr. Polk could not have hoped to receive her vote without the assurance that he was friendly lo its continuance. He did rrceiva her. vote, and :he inference is a fair cne that the necessary "assurance" was giveu (rem those who succeeded ia obtaining belief. Thosa who know the bitter hostility mani fested heretofore by Mr. Polk and his fiier.ds in the South against the Tariff, may well ask. was such a course candid rind honest ?

J "Dear Sis: I returned from my tour to the South and Southwest on the evening of the I8:h inst when I received your very friendly and in teresting letter of the 23d of May last, which I have read with great interest and attention. On its perusal and consideration, I have determined to remain in service until the situation of Eu rope fully developes itself, and oui affairs with Spain are brought to a final close. "Although retirement has been, anc. still is, the first object of my wishes, yet so long as it is believed that my military service may conduce to the benefit of my country, in any way, my ex ertions belongs to her. I Lave hitherto made, and it is still my duty as a patriot to make, my private interest and views subservient lo my country's good. I have, therefore, upon due consideration and reflection on the subject mat ter of your interesting letter, resolved not to re tire from service so long as my continuing may promote the welfare, safety, and happiness of ourcounlrv. I am well aware, as won as you believe the situation of our affairs will permit of PENNSYLVANIA AND THE TAR. IFF. The L islature of Pennsylvania (now in session,) has parsed by a unanimous vote ihe following preamble and resolution: " WiiEREAS.capitalists have been induced to make investments under the act of Con gress on the subject ofthe Tariff.in full con fidence and faith that the said law would not he altered : Then fore Resolved, That our Senators in Congress be instructed, and our Repres entatives requested, to oppose the passage of any bill w hich miy have for us object any reduction whatever, in the present TarifT.as established by the provisions of the act of Congress, passed the day of August, one thousand eight hundred and forty-two. resolution was attached, instructing the Governor to forwaid the same to the Senators and Representatives in Congress TVis re3 !uil n was adopted, yeas99,eays not one, by a Legislature, a majority cf whom voted for James K. Polk for Presi' dent, a m in who has denounced this same Tariffas highly oppressive and unjust, and that it ought to be repealed ! Has Mr. Polk changed his position on the Tariff, or was Pennsylvania humbugged ? But this is not all. Gov. Porter of Pennsylvania, a real locofoco and out-ar.dout supporter of Mr. Poik. in his recent Messagetothe Leg islature, advocates the ex stitig Tariff. He says: Before I conclude this communication, I will call your attention to a subject in which I believe the State of Pennsylvania has a deeper - stake than iu any other now pending, or likely to be biought, either be fore her own Legislature or the Union. I refer to the maintenance, in all substantial points, of the existing revenue las of the Union, more generally known as the tariff laws. 9 I advert lo this matter now, not so mti:h to justify, as to prove, whatever has been al leged to the contrary, that there is but one parly on this question in Pennsylvania, and that party is nearly the mass of her citizens , . - .

In thu middle and southern States three crops can thus ba turned under in one season. It is believed that no system cf manuring or ren ovation except the heaviest application of stab!a manure, can compare with this plan in its results. If the land be very poor the first crop will be very light, but light as it may b, it will add a very consilerable por tion ofthe elements of vegetable nutriment to the soil, and thus the second crop will be greater improved, and the third will bti all that can be desired. It is believed that in this four times as much improvement will be effected in cne season cs can by means ofclover in thiee or four years. For this purpose, farmers in the North should use the tall kinds ofsouthern corn, as being of more rapid growth, and furnishing vast ly more matter for the sou. Cultivator. Cob Meal. Messrs. Editors I nos ticed sometime since; an article in your pa per. (editorial I think,) in which it was ur ged upon farmers lo grind their cobs, as the meal was valuable for many purposes on the farm particularly for poultry, hogs, and strck. On the strength of this suggestion I acted, and I can now assure you, so well satisfied am I with the result, lhat my cobs will nev er, as heretofore, be uselessly thrown away. As I grind my cobs with the corn, I cannot speak definitely as ta the value of cob meal I used in its unmixed state, tut I am sat isfird that there is a very important saving attained by grinding ihe cobs. I have, du ring ihe last three months, fed corn and cob meal to my horses, cattle, hogs and calves, and as I have a large stock this w inter, the saving to me from ihis simple suggestion has. I assure you been of no small valua as regards the purse. Maine Cult.
