THE RECESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 3 March 1818
THE RECESS. FROM m PITTtBURG GAZETTE. SLEIGHING. ,A parody “Ye Marinert of England." Ye Gentlemen and Ladies, Who scorch in southern climes, Ah, little do you think upon The joy of tleighing timet. Give ear unto a Pittsburgh man, And he will plainlyshow, All the joys and the fears, When we ride upon the snow.. When snow and frosty weather Turn nature's visage white, We get the girl’s together, All wrapped up warm and tight. Right merrily their little longues Do rattle as we go, While away, in the sleigh, We ride upon the snow. At night our weight of metal, You easily may tell For seldom do we venture out, Unless se have a Belle. And belle have always clappers, And rattle as we go, While in spite of the night, We ride upon the snow. If dancing is the fashion, Tho’ “’tis wicked” says the parson, We scamper to a village inn, And carry there the farce on, While merrily the fiddle goes, The girls they shake a toe, At noodle doozy we get boszy. And come home upon the snow. Orlando.
Rulet from Ptolomy'e Golden Table. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 3 March 1818
Rulet from Ptolomy'e Golden Table. I never exalted the proud rich man, nor hated the poor just man. I never denied justice to the poor for poverty, nor pardoned the wealthy for his riches. 1 never gave reward for affection, nor punishment upon passion. I never suffered evil to escape unpunished, nor goodness unrewarded. 1 never denied justice (o him that asked it, nor mercy to him that deserved it. I never punished in anger, nor promised in mirth. I never did evil upon malice, nor good for covet* ousness. I always sought to be loved by the good and feared by,the wicked. I always favored the poor that were able to do. little and God who is able todo much favored me.

As apposite to the occasion* the following article is copied* published pome ''time since in the Lynchburg Press.] * The following is an extract of a letter written by -our lamented friend Major John Reid, after an excursion in company with Gen.

WONDERS OF THE MICROSCOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 10 March 1818
WONDERS OF THE MICROSCOPE. ■Upon examining the edge of a very keen razor by the tnieroscope, it appears as bread as the back patt of a very thick oiifej though uneven; full of knotches uid furrows and so' far any thing ike sharpness, that an' instrument so blunt as this seemed to be, would not serve even to cleave wood. An exceeding small needle being also examined, the point thereof appeared abovea quarter of an inclxin breadth; not round nor flat, but irregular and unequal, and the surface, though extremely smooth and bright to the naked eye* seemed futy of ruggedness, holes and scratches. In short; it resembled ant* 1 ton bar out of a smith’s forge. But the sting of a bee, viewed through the same instrument, shows every where a polish amazingly beautiful, "without the least flaw, blemish or inequality; and ended in a point too fine to be discerned. A small piece of exceeding fine lawn appeared, from the large distances or holes between its thrc&amp;ds somewhat like a bund...
