xne nger. From the American Museum. nandsome stra AN OLD UKNTLKMAN S STORY. BY MRS. EMMA C EMBURY. It was on a fine spring morning, some years since, that 1 found myself in one of those nuisances which , lor the convenience ol the patient public, so longplied between New Yoik and Long Island: 1 mean an old Brooklyn steam boat—now thanks to the enterprise of a few individuals, replaced by commodious and neat ferry-boats. As it is my disposition to seek always for the hidden good in every apparent evil, and from the most uncomfortable situation to extract, at least, amusement, I turned my attention to the study of human face divine as exhibited in the dirty, crowded cabin. In such an assemblage as is usuall y found in such places, there must be, ol necessity, a large proportion of insignificant, inexpressive, and disagreeable countenances, but the eye that seeks for the beautiful and the good can seldom roam through a crowded circle without finding , at least, one brow on wh...

MELANCHOLY SUICIDE. A tragic event occuired yestesday morning, [says the Pennsylvania Inquirer of April 1 ] about 8 o'clock, on Noble street wharf. A middle aged man named Mr. T.J. Pascotare, walked to a part of the wharf near the water's edge, and taking a razor from his pocket, cut his throat in so dreadful a manner, that he nearly severed his head from his body. He expired almost immediately. Several persons hastened from the fatal spot to James Gregory, Esq Coroner, who promptly convened a jury; and from the evidence deposed before them, it appeared that Mr. Pascotare was about 52 years of age, had formerl y been in good circumstances, but ol late had suffered much from the diffi. culty he experienced in obtaining a livelihood. Two letters were found upon him one directed to Mr. Clemens, and the oths er to Mr. Shafler, in both of which he stated, that when those gentlemen had read them, the writer . would have quitted the world. They were writtenin in a friendly spirit, ...

The Mails. Y\ hat in creation has got wrong with Amos' mail bags? We have often felt dis - posed to join with the general out-cry against the in- egularity of the mail.!, " but, long since, wc have seen the folly of complaint. But, in order tha t our readers may know, that when the papc r is not re" ceived, that it is nol always our fault. On one day last week, wc received a letter post marked at Mill creeek, 6 miles below this town, which had been seven days on the rout. This kind of expedition is only equalled, by that of the man who "ran 14 miles in 15 days, and never looked behind him." We may as well laugh as cry.atthc negligence of these Su" Treasurers—all we rcgiet, is, that they cannot send their letters as rapidly as they can run themselves; although, it is not res corded, whether the worth y whose speed is recorded above was a Svt or not. On Thursday, of last week, we received the U. S. Gazette of March 23d, which had been ten days on its passage; and, what makes i...

WOMAN. "What is man's love? His vows are broke E'en while the parting kiss is warm; But woman's love all change wil 1 work And like the ivy round the oak, Cling closest in the storm." Who is there that, has not marked and admired the firm and devoted aflection of woman? Who that has felt and known the fond and endearing attention of a sister, or has enjoyed the ardent <$• sclflor-Setting fondness ot a mother? Who that has seen or lived in the eternal sunshine of a wile's love, will not join with us in the sentiments of the poet. If there be aught in this world of toil and care, that was created solel y to cull the thorns Irom the rugged pathway o f life, and to strew flowers in their stead, and to render more bouyant the spirits of man—that being is woman. From his cradle to his grave, the Utile of joy and happiness man can know, or earth can give, seem to be all concentrated in one feeling—affection for her so justl y called, "heaven's last, best gill." Wc have seen ...

Our Town. Ah! favored, happy, distinguished town this Huntingdon. At this present moment, we have a Governor! a real live governor! What do you think of that, little towns, a live Governor, just think of it. "Vat a werry hextraordinary ewent," as the loafer said when he found a fip. Who Mould believe it? How strange: yet not less strange than true. Reader, let us introduce you-to him. Do you see that man standing like Tom Benton's ball, solitary and alone, his hands most gracefully laid across his hips, under his coat tail; a little inclination in his figure, his eyes bent on the ground, and his brows brooding over them, as if to keep out the gaze ofaplebian world, or of lion, est men. 7"hat's him, a real live Governor. But watch him a moment, see how noislessly he glides into yon little crowd of men. Hear him "how de do"—"how are you"—"How do you do," how friend ly. They were disappointed, he must keep them friends still. But here comes one , he is rejoiced to sec—he is a w...

"Anti masonic Vigilance again" It is reall y laughable, to see the holy zeal of some one of the writers in fhe Stan" ilard, in trying to show how wickedl y negligent the Anti-masonic Sheriff had been, in not having a reward ef perhaps hundreds put on the rc-capttiring ol young Taylor- At first he fumes, and works like a barrel ol" bcer .because our Anti-inasonic Sheriff is the tenant of an old jail that would hardl y hold sheep unless watched, and because a cunning knave has been cunning enough to leave the old walls for more extensive quarters; and again lis cracks his whi p because the sher iff did not advertise him sooner than Iff teen days. We almost think, that the article was dictated by a spirit of remorse at having lost an Atlomcifs fee for prosecuting the poor devil. (The first article was from Huntingdon) but, be that as it may, we perfectly agree with the writer, that villians Lav*, escaped punishment in this county, but not exposure. If they have escaped justice,...

ine late eminent A Beautiful Seniituent- junge Mr Allen Park once said at a public meeting in the city. "We live in the midst of blessings, till we are utterly insensible of their greatness, and of the source Irom whence they flow. Wc speak of our civilization, [our art, our freedoms; our laws, ^and forget entirely how large a share of all is due to Christianity.—Blot Christianity out of the page ol man's history, and what would his laws have been—what his civilization? -Christianity is mixed up with our very being and our daily life; there is not a familiar object around us which does not wear a mark, not a being or thing which does not wear a different aspect, because the light of Christian hopes are on it, not a law, which does not owe its truth and gentleness to Christianity, not a custom which cannot be traced in all its holy and healthy parts to the Gospel." Messrs. Swartwout and Price were fctill in Paris at the last dates. Origin of the term Shinplastern — It may...
