The great scarcity of public funds, under which this pro- vince is suffering, and the urgent necessities at this time' felt by its representative bodies, has compelled the Baron de Bastrop, sixth member of the most excellent deputation, to undertake the fatiguing journey to that place, to collect as much as possible of fees belonging to the nation, agreeably to the fee bill, which I left with you, on the lands granted to those inhabitants, and also for the purpose of issuing titles to them, as the commissioner of this government, in union with yourself.

,5S2? -pe?-' & t- From the American Monthly Magazine for February. THE LOVER TO THE STAR LYRA. "We agreed at our parting, that wherever vc might be, every night, at a certain hour, our eyes should be fixed on a particular star (the first in the constellation Lyra;) and thus we might be sure that the thoughts of each were dwelling on the other." Diary of an Enthusiast. Bright stab! whose soft and pencilled ray Falls trembling over earth and sea, Far dearer than the flush of day, Is thy pale beam to me; For more than lettered sage can tell, May in that quivering glimmer dwell. Perchance upon this lovely eve, Another's glance is on thee bent, And tracks thy beams until they leave Her own far firmament; Then turning sadly from the view, She whispers "Is he gazing too? "He promised (when he left me weeping, To count the weary widowed days,) Still, when the earth in dew lay sleeping, On that pale star to gaze, 3 And that its changeless gleam should be A type of his true constancy.

Gentlemen of the Senate and House of Representatives: With peculiar pleasure I greet your return to the Capitol. At the adjournment of the last session, the country was under the apprehension of an invasion from our enemy, which crea- ted much solicitude, and had an unkind influence on our foreign relations. It was temporary in its effects, as was manifested in the recognition of our independence by the Government of the United States of America. We now occupy the proud at- titude of a sovereign and independent Republic; which will impose upon us the obligation of evincing to the world, that we are worthy to be free. This will only be accomplished by wise legislation, the maintainance of our integrity, and the ...

Their means have aided us in the darkest hours of our pro- bation, and recently have aided in dispelling our embarrassments. Such men deserve the gratitude, as well as the justice of our country.

fc lt selves nabobs if they please- so long as they pay for the paper; never exhibit that aristocracy, which is a part of the original sin that is in us all, in any such way, for it will do no good, my son. Above all things, never put it in the power of any man to say, " that is our paper," we subscribe twenty dollars a piece to keep it up ; for as sure as you live, sooner or later something will be printed that somebody won't like, and then somebody will drop his subscription to get your paper down. One man will withdraw, or become a little water-gruelly towards you because you are too severe upon sinners and upon sin j and another because you are not half severe enough. Another will give you that half way sup- port that is more injurious than no support at all, and if your paper is praised by some old fashioned, honest hearted man, he will reply, in pru dent and well balanced phraseology, that he does not know but it is so, and he docs not know as it is so.

0 AMERICA AND ENGLAND. The following beautiful sentiment Is qnoted in Blackwood, aB com- isSg from "one of Coleridge's SybiKine Leaves." "Though ages long have past Since our fathers left their home, Their pilot in the blast, O'er untravelled seas to roam; Yet lives the blood of England in our veins; And shall we not proclaim That blood of honest fame, . Which no tyranny can tame - - By its chains? ? v While the language free and bold Which the bard of Avon sung, In which our Milton told Ilow the vault of Heaven rung When Satan, blasted, fell, with all his ho3t; While these with reverence moot, Ten thousand echoes greet, And from rock to rock repeat.

b 0. But suppose the principle, for which the gentleman contends, was car- ried out, and we were to have another invasion, and should be driven east of the Trinity, and could not return before October, what would be the result? According to the gentleman's doctrine, the counties west of the Trinity :ould not be represented in the next congress: as a matter "of course, there would be no quorum; and thereby the legislative arm of government would be paralyzed. A calamity, a national calamity, far greater than any I anticipate at the hands of our enemies. I trust that gentlemen will reflect, ere they, without cause, without reason, und without.juslice, precipitate their government into such perilous straits.

Rest assured Mr. Speak- er, take my word for it,v if evils do really threaten us from this source, instead of looking to rogues for amelioration, it is best to - place confidence in and rely upon our honest and virtuous citi- i zens: Away then with this absurd vulgarism, this -loathsome and abhorrent proposition, abhorrent alike to every dictate of reason, and every principle of Tirtue. In regard to the charter already granted, I would remark in behalf of congress, that it was not obtained through ignorance, or granted as a matter of right or favoritism, but solely as a mat- ter of policy. In reply to those who have asked, how can we who granted the other charter, refuse this, I reply, triumphantly reply, that the other was granted as a matter of policy;. that hav- ing already granted banking privileges to an amount adequate to the wants of the people, that therefore the pol...
