Take, take me to my father-land, ' My native hills among: To theo I lift my trembling hand; Why art th ju deaf o long ! I pine to sec its sylvian bowers. To gathcj unco again its lowers, And hear the mock-birds son. This wildwood may fcciii f.iir to thee Alas, it hath no charm for me Hound with the captive's thong. I cannot linger here, nway From my sweet childhood's home ; Oil ! bid me not, red chief, to stay With time these wilds to roam. Theso rugged rocks nre dear, I ween ; Compar'd lo ours, bright with the beam That gilds my laud alone ! Ah ! shall I never sec it more, Or gamble on its silver shore, And hear the laku's soft moan ! Viutiov'd the haughty warrior Mood Hegardless of the prayer, And seem'd amid that solitude Like beast within his lair! His eyes now scowl'd like darkest night IS'ow lit they up w'tli fierce delight And shone with savage glare! Then, foolish maiden, die! for stay Thou shalt from thy young home away ; Exclaiin'd tho chief in sneer ! Oh! harder than the flinty rock Was that red warrior's heart ; Rude to the maiden's breast the shock That tore life's Mrinccs opart. The bosom's restless heave was there The settled feelings of despair; The wild convulsive start : Intelligence had fled its throne She stood ns doth the imaged stone Carv'd by the hand of art ! And now that form that once was fair, Those eves that once were blight, Have lost amid a soul's despair The magic of their light. Springs swectes flower's bloom in vain,. Sad Autumn smiles upon the plain, Affl paints the sky 'ere night : Still, still their beauties arc unseen 13y the poor Indian maid, I ween She perished with a blight. 1). From the North American Review. The Oregon Territory. Fort Vancouver is situated on the north side of the Columbia, live miles above the mouth of the Multnomah, in a handsome prairie, and upon a second bank, about three quarters of a mile from the river. This is the fort, as it stood . -I T fcl - ' .1. - I ,1 I wuen iir. t?mun arnveu mere ; out a large one, 300 feet square, about three quarters of a mile lower down, and within two hundred yards of the river, was com inenccd the spring he came away. Twelve poimJcrs were the heaviest can non which ho saw. The crop of lB'.'S was seven hundred bushels of wheat, the grain full and plump, and making good Hour ; fourteen acres of corn ; the same number of acre3 in peas ; eight acres of oats ; four or five acres of barley ; a fine garden ; some small apple-trees and grape vines. The ensuing spring, eighty bush els of seed-wheat were sown. About two hundred head of cattle ; fifty horses and breeding mares ; three hundred head of hogs; fourteen goats; end the usual do mestic fowls. They have mechanics of various kinds, to wit, blacksmiths, gun smiths, carpenters, coopers ; tinner, and baker ; a good sawmill, live miles above, on the bank of the river; a grist-mill, worked by hand, but intended to work by water. They have built two coasting vessels, one ot which was then on a vov a to the Sandwich Islands. No Eng lish or white woman was at the fort ; but a great number of mixedblood Indian extraction, such as belong to tho British fur-trading establishments, who were trea ted as wives, and the families of children taken care of accordingly, So that every thing seemed to combine to prove, that this fort was to be a permanent establish ment. At Tort Vancouver, the goods of tho Indian trade are imported from Lon don, and enter the territories of the United States paying no duties; and, from the same point, the furs taken on the other side of the mountains arc shipped. The annual quantity of these furs could not be exactly ascertained ; but Mr. !'mith was informed, indirectly, that they amounted lo thirty thousand beaver skins, besides otter skins and small furs. The beaver skins alone, at the New York price would be worth about SW30,0(K. To ob tain these furs, both trapping and trading are resorted to. Various parties, provid ed with traps, spread over the country south of the Columbia, to the neighbor hood of the Mexican territory ; and in 182 1-f), they crossed the liocky Moun tains, and tripped on the waters of tho Missouri river. They do not trap north of latitude 3'.), but confine that business to the territory of the United States. Thus, this territory, being trapped by both parties, is nearly exhausted of I lea vers ; and, unless the British can be stop ped, will soon be entirely exhausted, and no place left within the United States, where beaver fur, in any quantity, can be obtained. The inequality of the convention with (Jreat Britain, in 1818. is most glaring and apparent, and its continuance is a great and manifest injury to the United Slates. The privileges granted by it have enabled the British to lake posses sion of the Columbia river, and spread over the country south of it ; while no Americans have ever gone, or can venture to go, on the British side. The interest of the United States and her citizens cn gagod in tho fur tr:ido recjuirco, that the convention of 1818 should be terminated, and each nation be confined to its own territories. Besides this commercial in terest there are other considerations re quiring the same result. These arc, tho influence which the British have already acquired over the Indians in that quarter, and the prospect of a British colony, and a military and naval station on tho Colum bia. Their influence over the Indians is now decisive. Of this the Americans have constant and striking proofs, in the preference which they give to the British in every particular. Fort Vancouver, the principal drjtol of the Hudson's Bay Company west of the Rocky Mountains, stands on a gentle acclivity, four hundred yards from tiie shore, on the earth bank of the Columbia, or Oregon river, about one hundred miles from its month. The piincipal buildings are enclosed by a picket, forming an area of 751) by 150 feet. Within the picket, there are thirty-four buildings of all des criptions, including officers' dwelling houses, workshops for carpenters, black smiths, wheelwrights, coopers, tinners, tfcc, all of wood, except the magazine for powder, which is of brick. Outside and very near the fort there arc forty-nine cabins for laborers and mechanics, a large and commodious barn and seven buildings attached thereto ; a hospital and large boat house on the shore, six miles above the fort. On the north bank, the Hudson's Bay Company have erected a saw-mill on a never-failing stream of water, that falls into the Columbia; cuts J,UUU to '2, 100 feet of lumber daily ; employs twenty eight men, chiefly Sandwich Inlanders, and ten yoke of oxen ; depth of water, four fathoms, at the mill, where the ships of the company take in their cargoes for the Sandwich Islands market. The farm at Vancouver contains, at this time, about three thousand acres of land, fenced and under cultivation, em ploying generally ono hundred nnm, chief ly Canadians and half-breed Iroquois ; the mechanics are Europeans. Thee, with the f ictors, trailers, clerks, and do mestics, 'may be estimated at thirty. The laborers and mechanics live outside the fort, in good log cabins, two or three families generally under one roof; and, as nearly every man has a wife, or lives with an Indian or half-breed woman, and as each family has from two to five slaves, the whole number of persons about Vancouver may bo estimated at seven hundred and fifty to eight hundred souls. The police ot the establishment is as strict as in the best regulated military garrison. ' t . , , . Tho farm at Vancouver has produced this year, (1837.) 8,000 bushels of wheat, 5,500 bushels of barley, 0,001) ...ushcls of oats, U,000 bushels of peas, 1 1,000 bush els of potatoes, besides large quantities of turnips (rutabaga,) pumpkins, vc. About COO bushels of wheat, of the old crop, remain on hand this year. Stock consists of about 1,000 head of neat cattle, 700 hogs, 200 sheep, -150 to 500 horses, and 40 voke of working oxen. There is a large threshing machine, dis tillery (not at present in operation), am a grist-mill. In short, the farm is aluiud antly supplied with all the requisite uteiv sils for a much larger establishment ; and it win tie inucn increased the ensuing year. A thriving orchard is also planted ; the apple, quince, pear, and the grape grow well. J'rtitc, iVc. A large ship arrives annu ally from London, and discharges at Van couver; cargo, chiefly coarse woollens cloths, baizes, and blankets; hardware, cutlery, calicoes, cottons, ami cotton handkerchiefs ; tea, sugar, cofl'ee, and cocoa; uinncco, soap, !e:uis, gun", pow der, lead, rum, playing cards, boot:-, shoes, ready-made clothing, eve., cc; besides every description of sea Mores, canvas, cordage, paints, oils, chains and chain cable, anchors, tc, to refit the compa ny 's ships, that remain on the coast. These are the ship Ncreide, the brig Lla ma, tho schooner Cadlorouh, and sloop Bronghton ; the steamboat Be: v r, of one hundred and fifty tons, two engines of thirty horse power, built in Loudon last year. These vessels are well armed and manned ; the crews arc engaged in Eng land, to serve five years, at ' pei month for seamen. The London ship, with the annual supply, usually arrives in the Co lumbia in early spring, discharges, and takes a cargo of lumber to the Sandwich Islands; returns in August to receive the furs that are brought lo the depot (fort ancouver) once a year, from the interior, iv the l,uluniuia river, lrom the Snake country, and from the American rendez vous west ot the Uoeky .Mountains, and lrom as far south as St. r raneisco, in California. Whilst one of the compa ny's vessels brings in the collections of furs and peltries made at the different de pots along the coast at the north, the steamboat is now being employed in navi- nting tboac mngriilict-iit straits from Juan de Euc:t to Stickern. Immense quantities of furs, sea otter, beaver, martin, and sa ble, can be collected along the shores of these bays and inlets. The chief traders it Xarquallah, in 17 30 Fort Laanglay, m V.y i)0 , 1 ort .McLaughlin, in 52 I(i Fort Simpson, in 51 -10v north, purchase all the furs and peltries from the fndians in their vicinity and as far as New Cale donia, in the interior, and supply ihein with guns, powder, lead, tobacco, beads, Sec, all of which supplies are taken from the principal depot at Fort Vancouver. An express, as it is called, goes out in March, annually, from Vancouver, and ascends the Columbia nine hundred miles in bateaux. One of the chief factors, or chief traders, takes charge of the property, and conveys to Vork factory, on Hud son's) Day, tho annual returns of llio busi ness conducted by the Hudson's Bay company west of the Kocky Mountains, in the Columbia district. This party likewise conveys to the different foils ilong the route, goods suitable to the In dian trade ; other parties take up supplies, as thry may be required, lo WallawalLth, two hundred and fifty mil' s above Van couver; to i oivitie, six iiuiidrcd miles above ; to the fort at the junction of Lewis's river, seven hundred miles above ; and to the south to the Fort McKovs, on thn river Umpqua, in latitude 1'C 50' north ; and, last year (18:0, ) chief trader McLeod took up to the American rendez vous, in about latitude KC north, a large supply of British manufactures. This assemblage of American trappers and hunters takes place annually on the west ern fide of the Uoeky .Mountains, gener ally in the month of July, and amounts to from four hundred and fifty to live hund red men, who bring the result of their year's labor to sell to the American fur traders. These persons purchase their supplies for the trappers at St. Louis; though, after being subject lo the duli"s on tnesi; arucics, teliiclly ol llnf li man ufacture.) they transport their goods about one thousand four humliYd miles by land, to sell to citizens of tin: l.'nited Stales within our acknowledged lines of territo ry. Last year, they met a powerful op ponent, in the agent of this foreign mon opoly, chief trader , McLeod, who could well alford to undersell the American fur trader on hi vim irr:nnj, first, by having the advantage of water communi cation on the Columbia and Lewis's riv ers for a distance of seven or eight hund red miles; and, secondly, by introducing thn goods free of duly, which is equal to at least twenty-five to thirty per centum ; but a greater evil than this caisls in the influence the Hudson's Bay company exercises over the Indians by supplying tlivui witlt arms and nihmiinilion, which may prove, at some future period, highly dangerous to our frontier settlements Besides this, the policy of this company is calculated to perpetuate the institution of slavery, w hich now exists, and is en couraged, among all the Indian tribej west of the Uoeky Mountains. I shall refer to this more particularly hereafter. From what 1 have seen, I feel perfectly satisfied, that no individual en terprise can compete with this immense foreign monopoly established in our own waters. AVoiiicii .Miii'ltrt in Turkey. An l.'ugli-.!i traveler in Turkey gives t!ic fol lowing account of the ki!c and purchase of fc ma'ci ; But a market where horrid idea ! women are sold like beasts. (Jod forbid that I should defend it! At the same time, the pretty creatures sccin so con tent that I cannot pity them. Perhaps I should follow the example of most wri ters, who, whenever they touch by chance on such a subject, give vent to a deal of sen'.inie ntalism ami vapouring about wee ping innocence, and dishevelled locks, and torn garments, and beaten breasts. Such exists only in imagination, and 1 helteve at many w ho describe the slave markets, m such moving terms, ncer saw one. Occasional heart-rending scenes occur, in case of captives of war, or victims of re volt, wrenched suddenly lrom nil that is dear; but these are rave occurrences. The Circassians and (Jeorgians, who form the trade supply, are only victims of custom, willing vistuns ; being brought up by their mercenary parents for the merchants. II bora Mehoinnu'ilan, tlicy remain so; if born Christians, they arc educated in no faith, in order that they may conform, when purchased, to the Musseluian faith, and, therefore, they suf fer no sacrifice on that score. They live' i secluded life, harshly treated by their relations, never seeing a strangers face, and, therefore, form no ties of friendship or love, preserve no pleasing recollections of home, to make them regret their coun try. Their destination is constantly be fore their eyes, painted in glow ing colors ; and so far from dreading it, they look for the moment of going to Anapa, or Poti, w hence they are shipped for Slanihoul, w ith as much eagerness as a pailor-boaid-er of a French or Italian convent for her emancipation. In the market they arc lodged in separate apartments, carefully secluded, where, in the hours i f business between 0 and l'J they may be v isi ted by aspirants for such delicate ware. I need not draw a veil over what follows. Decorum prevails. The would-be pur chaser may fix bis eyes on the lady's face, and his hands may ri'icive evidence of her bust. The waltz allows nearly as much liberty before hundreds of eyes. Of course, the merchant gives his war rants, on which, and th" preceding data, the bargain is closed. The common price for a tolerable good looking maid is about .CI 00. Some fetch hundreds, the value depending as much on accomplish ments a.-; on beauty ; but such are gene rally singled out by the busier Aga. A coarser article from Nubia and Abyssinia is exposed publicly on platforms, beneath verandahs, before the ciibs of the white china.

A few days since, a large yellowish panther, was discovered near the house ol Mr. I in-lead, lil'ieen or fixtccn miles west of Prairie du Chien, in Clayton couuly, Iowa I erntory, by .Messrs. Could, Paul, and Umstead. Viewing him as rather a dangerous neighbor, lliev deemed it the most politic course to pre vent ilcnicilatious bv destroying linn at once. Accordingly, pursuit was made with one gun and two dogs. The enemy - i was soon driven into lus den or cave, some lit teen icet occ , m tlic suns ol a perpendicular rock. The dogs were then scut in, in hopes of ousting him : but he handled them so roughly that one soon came hack with his nose and sides se verely torn. The other in battle had got over the panther and was in his rear in th" cave. This was not pleasant to the owner, as it was a valuable animal, and to induce the animal to come out the men retired to a distance, within rillo shot to await tho event. The plan succeeded ; the panther noon came out, and the other do shot by him and came to his master. The panther's qucik eye discovered his enemies as soon as he emerged from bis den, and whuelcd and returned, passing the retiring dog at the instant: allot' which was done too quick for the marksmen to shoot. As tin: dog was out and the pan ther in the den, the mouth was walled up with stone to prevent his escape, as night was fast approaching. In this condition he remained four days before another attempt w as mrule to get him out, in hopes that in the meantime he would starve or suffo cate. On opening the cave it was soon found that the panther was alive and ready to give fight if further oppressed. But 1 'in stead, unwilling to give up bis prey, took a candle and entered his cave, in which were several small angles and narrow passages, barely allowing a man to creep. On turning one of these angles, and at the narrowest part of the cave, I instead came so near the animal that it spit in his face, I .! t ... eai-iiue ; at tins tic retreated a little ami kindled a lire the others passing him in dry wood, and filled the space entirely with cumbustiblo substance. He then built a stone wall outside of the fire, and another at the mouth of the den. Having thus beseiged and secured their enemy, the men awaited the r.-snlt. They soon found the work of death in a rapid stage of progress. The panther grow led and made a plunge into the lire, but the wall preventing his escape, was obliged to retire, and he then groaned and expired. But to make the work sure, and gio time for the fire to extinguish, so that they could pass the place of its action, two or three days more expired before the den was re-opened ; when the panther was found back ol the place of the lire, still and cold. When got out, he measured upwards of six feet from the lip of the nose lo the end of the tail, and was so heavy that it requiicd two men lo carry him a short distance to the house. Some half dozen of these animals have been killed within two years past, between Turkey river and this place, on the west side of the Mississippi, but this is the first and only one bearded and burnt in his den. Nrolcli lluii J nun. Never, perhaps, since the time of Lord Byron, has a handsomer face been seen than that of Sir ( 'barb s Watcrforl. His full dark eyes, his expansive forehead, and his small and gentlemanly hand, distin guished bim among all the ladies in this tart of the country. Nothing was fo langenius to their peace of mind as his conversation, and nothing so seductive jis lis little llalleries. In short, he turned all ih'.ir heads. But Sir Charles had a ruinous vice, which blighted every thing. He was a gambler. Ho bad espoused rieh :;iid noiiie ladies, whose dowcries should have made him a rich man, for he i:ui feir wives, who were all dead, and slept forever in the i-amo tetnb. To- lay Sir Charles Walcrfort appeared be fore a jury, in company with a Dr. Black, charged with having attempted the death of his wife, Lady Betsy Uai, by starva tion. At the coinmeni-enient of the pre sent year this lady, contrary to the wishes of her family, married Sir Charles, illicit ly four times a widower. She bad long loved him, and it was in vain that her lamuy remonstrated with ner, and pointed out the mysterious fate of the four deceas ed wives. The marriage was celebrat ed, and Lady Betsy in due lime pre sented the worthy Baronet w ith an heir to lis title. Her Ladyship one day feeling slightly indisposed, Dr. Black was called in. He felt the pulse of his patient, exa mined the tongue, 'and prescribed a die!. The diet was continued until the unfortu nate lady was almost mad. Nothing but liquids was ullow t d hi r, not a particle of iread must enter her hps. In alit of delirium s,h.!f..i-ilc!ie.lni her infant, and seemed in the very act of do- vourittg it to satisfy the cruings of na- Hire, when the u ri lug em es i f the child 1 brought the father into the room, win could not bear the thoughts of losing tin child, although he had planned the dc stri ction of its mothi r. To .ic the child he or b-red f o I to be given to the parent ; and linn to a sort of paternal iu stiet, aain-t which the hardened heart ol Sir Charles vv;;-s not quite proof, her lady ship owed her iv"er a'ioii.

The noble prosecutrix simply staled the fact of her having been starveiL as above stated, but aid she had nothing more to say against the prisoners. Twenty-one witnesses were examined in proof of the fjcU of the case, consisting of the servants and tenantry of the accused Baronet. Both prisoners were found guilty, and sen- tenccu to twenty years transportation. :Molhcr be CbrrrfaL ' Not in studies above their years, or ill irksome tasks, should children be employ cd.

It them learn to draw happiness from all surrounding objects since there must be sonic mixture of happiness in every thing but sin. It was once said of a beautiful woman, that from her childhood she had ever spoken smiling, as if the heart poured joy from the lips, and they turned it into lirauty. May 1 be forgiven for so repeatedly pressing on mothers to wear the linia incnls of cheerfulness ? "To be good and disagreeable, is high treason against tin; rovalitv of virtue," said a correct moralist. How much is it to be depreca ted, when piety, the t.nly found.nion of true happiness, fails of making that joy visible to the eye ! lis happiness is mc lody of soul, the concord of our feelings with the circumstances of our lot, the" harmony id" the whole being with the will ol our Creator, how dcsiiable that this melody should produce the response of sweet tones and a Finding countenance, that even slight observers may be won by the charms of its external symbols.

Shall I ever forgt t him, and his capital blunders, that kept me laughing the whole, time I spent in Ireland ? I was in the Jiouse when he concluded a panegyric upon a fiicnd, by calling him 'the father of the poor, and uncle to Lord Donoughmore.' " tf'He was the only man who could ren der by a bull what it was impossible to convey more correctly," said Power "you have heard of his duel with Harry 'J oolcr ?" 'Never. Lei's hear it." "It was a bull from beginning-to end. Boyle took it into his head that Harrv was a person with whom he had a serious row in Cork. Harry, on the other hand, mistook Boyle for old Cnplcs, whom lie ' had been pursuring w ith horse-whipping intentions for sonic months ; they met in Kildare street Club, and some little collo quy satisfied them that they were right in their conjectures': each 'party being so eagerly ready to meet the views of the other.''' "It never was a diflicult matter to find a friend in Publin; and, to do them justice, Irish seconds, generally speaking, are perfectly free from any imputation upon the score of good breeding. No men have less impertinent curiosity r.s to the cause ;f ihe quarrel; wisely supposing that the principals know their own affairs best, they cautiously abstain from indul ging any prying spirit, but proceed to dischaige their functions as best they may.
