A LESSON FOR COQUETTES. "We have a visitor to-day," said Lord Pallister to his niece, the lovch' Elizabeth Pallister, who was on a visit lor a week to her right Hon. uncle. "Who. is it," said the lady, "a lady or gentleman?" "A gentleman—Mr. Jones." "And who is Mr. Jones—is it Bumper Squire Jones, or the renowned Tom?" But we will sa\ e his lordshi p the trouble of describing who Mr. Jones was. He was simply Mr. Jones, of Pierccficld in the county of Suffolk. Now this discription is very short but it is quile sufficient to describe Mr. Jones. It is evident he was not of very ancient gentility—had he been so, he would have been Mr. Jones of Piercelield Hall, or Pierccfield Manor; he was not a retired merchant, or he would have been Mr. Jones of Pierceficld House; neither could behave been a retired shop, keeper, or his house would have been dignified with the cuphonius name of Rofe Villa, or Bellevuc Cottage, or Piercefield Lodge.

Dreadful atate of the times in JfliHsissipi. The tumors we have had of the extreme pressure and pecuniary embarrassment among the planters ol this rich State, are, we regret to say, full y confirmed. A number of the Banks have suspended specie payments, and we', observe in the JSenton Banner of March 16, no less than 15 or 16 columsof the paper exclusively occupied whith Sheriff's Sales! such is the alarm crcated,that meetings have been held there, and at Yazoo city, to devise means to avoid the sacrifice of property under these executions. A state more «ta'oie and opulent in pecuniary resources, derived from her great staple (cotton,) does not exist in the Union; vet, from some defective arrangement in the banking system, o- from the malign experiments Van Buren, Benton, Kendall & Co. upon the currency of the country, the machinery of the circulation has received a blow from which it cannot recover. It is to be ht.ped that the revival of the hard currency ccr. - .mc...

FROM THE FRONTIER. Things are in a said state in the North. Hardly a night passes, without a burning on one side or the other. On Friday of last week, a barn and a shed owned by Charles Miller, of St Armand, was burned down, together with their contents, consisting of eight horses, ten cows, two oxen; five calves and a quntity of hay, the Missiskoui Standard says, tha " l the perpetrators of this a<-t were traced several miles in the direction of Swantotl, but that suspicion does not rest upon any person in particular. As a matter of course this led to retaliation, and on thefollowing night two barns were burned on this side, one of which, we believe, was owned by John llarr, Esq of Hlghgate. Two companies of the Highgate miii'ia were under aims on Monday, and a gentleman who came through on Tuesday informed us that excitement was at its highest pitch. We further learn that the incendiaries on this side were in one instance recognized as belonging to the volunteers. T...

The Slanderer. "He who steals my purse s'.ca's trash, But he who filches from me my good name, llobs me of that which not enriches him, But makes me poori.ideed."—SIIAKSPEARE. All that is damnable in the black catalogue ot g'.iilt, all that is foul and corrupt in the store-house of human iniquity, all the demon-like traits of moral deformity, and the blighting mildew of detraction and defamation, are treasured up in the bane and cowardly heart of the malicious slanderer. The individual who aitr.s a pistol at my breast, with the threat that "death's leaden messenger" shall cut the "brittle thread of life," or tells me his sword shail smother its vengeance in my bosom, gives me at le.isi the privilege of defending myself against his atrocious assaults, but he. who, from the dark recess of his perjured soul, pours forth the venom of the asp to poisur. my reputation, whose breath is like the sirocco, and tongue the "destroying angel," who can sport with my ''good name" as a "tri...

The murderer taken and the Murder Confessed. From the Lancaster Intelligence r. We presume that our readers have a!l heard that Kobler and Wilman, the two men upon whom suspicion rested of having participated in the murder of Lazarus Zellerbaeh, were arrested on Wednesday last, in the city of Baltimore. We have since learned that a letter has been received in Philadelphia in which it is stated that they had confessed their guilt' We have this from authority, and are assured of its entire correctness. There is no occurrence, which has (rati * p ired tor a long time, in which the public mind has been more interested than in this atrocious murder. The excitement prevailed not in a mere locality; itaHected, in a manner, the whole country, and occasioned the profoundest sympathy for the unfoitunate deceased, and the most earnest hope that the murderers would be taken. We are pleased to have it »o announce, therefore, that such has been ilie case not only, but that ths deed is a...
