Revenge. "When I wa3 a small boy," says Dr. Southey/'there was a black boy in the neighborhood, by th» name of Jira Dick. Myself and a number of my playfellows were one evening collected together at our usual sports, and began tormenting the poor colored boy, by calling him "blackamoor," "nigger," and other degraded epithets. The poor fellow appeared to . be excessively -grieved at our conduct, anil soon left us.—- We soon after made an appointment to go skating iu the neighborhood, and on the day of the appointment I had the misfortune to to break my skates and! could not go without borrowing a pair of Jim Dick- I went to him and asked him for them. Ob/yes, John, you inuy havo them and Wellcome,* was thewnswer. When I went to return them, I found Jim silting by the fire in the kitchen reading the Bible. I told him I returned his skates,and was under great obligation to him for his kindness. He looked at me ai he took the skates, and with tears in his eyes said to me, 'John, don't...

N am c's The origin of names is traceable hot only to the trade or profession of the famil y's founders, bnt also to their bodil y pdtuliarrties, qualities, accomplishments o ' r'defects, and the degree of respectability ih 'which they were held remarkable incidents which have happened to particular persons, arealso frequently recorded in their surnames.— But from the earliest times it Was necessary to-distinguish one front another, which could only he done by pointing out personal qualities, or place of residence. Thus, Mr. Lightfoot, Mr. Ciolighlly, Mr. Swift, Mr. Hopper, Mr. Ambler, and Mr. Jumper drew their names from tho bodily agility of the first hearers; and Messrs. Ileavysidtrs, Saunter, Onslow, and WnUdell, from the contrary quality. The Pains, the Aikiuheads, the Aikinsides, the Anguishes and Hsadakes, owe their appellations to the dolorous sensations of their ancestors—whilst tho Wilds, Sanguines., the Joys the Merrysand the Bucks, announce their descent from a set of ...

Our Eduoational Wants- The principal obstruction that educalion has to meet with in this district of country, is the circumstance of theGerman language being so prevalent in a region which is surrounded by people speaking only the English; for it prevents that interest working in the English population, from formenling also in our own neighborhood. We Germans are in a measure isolated from the rest of the world ; our ideas and actions are in some degree peculiar to our-Belves; and we are as exclusive , that is, moving only in our own prescribed orbit, as any aristocratic circle that shrinks from the contact of the vulgar. As long as this peculiarity of language exists, there will never bo that uniformity of feeling and action which ought to exist. But if this distinction in language must exist, let us seize the opportunity to make the moBt of il. The German is a very noble lan guage ; il is with respect to modern languages, what the Greek is to the dead—. the most vigorous, ...

Cause and Cure for the Potato Rot- As every suggestion likely lo he of service on a subject of so much importance, is worthy of attention, we insert from the-Morris Jersey man" the following: "One of our farmers, a few days since, while in conversation on that subject, said he planted his potatoes earlier this season than usual, and that he dug and put in his cellar some thirty or forty bushels before the rain came on. These arc still perfectly sound, while those which remained in the ground during the recent heavy rains are utterly worthless. To Ihe autumn rains many persons have attributed the rot, and consequently they put their crops in very early, to enable them to arrive al .maturity before the heavy rain commenced. The experiment menlioned below may be considered of some consequence, aswe have seen it sufficiently tried. A lady from Mississi ppi spent the past-season with her friends in our town. The all-engrossing subject of the potato was on the tapis, when she observ...

For the Iiehtglt Regta 'ter. Letter from a California Emigrant 24th inst. after a pleasant, though not remarkaably short voyage of twenty four days. We passed in sig ht of Havana on the 15th; the captain of the vessel going in as close to Ihe shore" as he safely could, to.allow us a good view of it. Any description of a p lace in a letter I vote down as a decided bore, so I refuse to say anything more of it. We experienced a gale iu the gulf which very nigh blew us on shore, having made laud just before it came on, and kept us oul two days longer. Of all the inconsistences in the world 1 believe this gulf to be the most; at least 1 imagine so; we were laying in a dead calm, no ripp le disturbing the water, and in five minutes alter it was blowing great "guns, " as tin* sailors say, with the waves rolling mountain high, and our little craft rolling and pitching like an unbroken coll. For one hour I thought I had bid goodbye forever, lo friends at home. The shore was hot livn tl...

Insanity. Of all the afflictions with which Providence visits man, says'lhe Pennsylvania Telegraph; there is none so horrible as the loss of reason. Every other misfortune sinks into insignifficanc.e compared wilh this. Fortune may be fickle, friends prove false , health may fail, poverty may sink a man almost to the depths of despair, yet there is still room for hope, that with a sound mind all these difficulties' may be overcome. But when reason ' is gone, when the intellect has ceased to be able to perform its legitimate functions, and the ravings of the insane man only seem to show the wreck of the noblest faculty of our nature , it is then the heart grows sick and the philanthropist shudders at the contemplation of the work of the destroyer. Of late years it has become a question of no little importance , what constitutes insanity / Monomania, ' or craziness upon some one point , has been sufficient in more than one case to exculpate a man from the blame attached to the...

Interesting from Canada. .Mo.vtkk*i, April 26, 1849.

On leaving the Parliament Mouse he wns pelted b y a mob— mostl y Orangemen—and forced lt> retire to his residence in the country. Last nigl.t while the Assembl y was engaged on the judiciary bill, loud shouls gave evidence that a riot was fomenting outside, and before a moment elapsed a number of stones were thrown through the windows. The members rushed behind the Speaker' s chair while stones continued lo be thrown incessantly. The benches were promptly desertecf, as well as the strangers' galleries, and members were seen fl ying up stnirs to the library. The only member visiblu was Mr. sjtevenioti, who had pluced himself on one of the benches between the windows, and eyed the havoc with the spirit of one deter* mined not to flinch. The stones for some time were thr...

Houses in Allentown-Allentown was nfeverin a more tlouiishing condition than at prssent, if we are to judge ol tho rapid improvement in real estate within a year past. The burnt district has with a few exceptions been built up again, besides many other buildings in different parts of the town and yet there was a scarcity of houses this spring and rents continue enormously high. We have nO doubt that one hundred more modeiate sized and convenient houses mig ht hare been readily rented this spring to good advantage.— Though this is a condition of things that we all have reason to rejoice at, as an evidence of the rapid, though healthy growth of oar town, yet it is not without its draw backs. Like the fable of the frogs, though it is sport to some, it is death-to others. Those who have houses to rejit' may be satisfied, bat to those who have fo reut them, it is quite another thing.
