BEAUTY OK TIIL! JEWESS. liY CHATEAUBRIAND, Fontaine asked me one day, why the women of the Jewish race were so much handsomer than the men. I gave htm a reason at once poetical and Christian. The Jewesses, 1 replied, have escaped the curse which has alighted upon their fathers, husbands and sons. Nit a Jewess was to be seen among the crowd of priests and rabble who insulted the son of man, scourging him, crowned him with thorns, subjected him to ignominy and the cross, l'lie woman of i/udea believed in the Saviour—they loved, they followed him, they soothed him under afflictions. A woman in Bethany poured on his head the precious ointment which she kept in n vase of alabaster; the sinner annointed his feet with a perfumed oil, and wiped them with her hair. Cluist on his part, extended his grace and mercy to the Jewesses: he raised from the dead the son of tlie widow of Nain, and Martha's brother, Lazarus; he cured Simon's mothcr-imlaw, and the woman who touched the hem of hi...

EDITORIAL SUMMARY. "Befcvveti Slvtitle»• EXCELLENT There is a law in existence in Mississippi, which declares, that any candidate for office, who during lUe time of canvass, bestows liquor upon any of the voters, is guilty of bribery, and subject to the penalties for that crime. There exists a severe famine in some parts of Newfoundland. Hundreds of families are said to be without an ounce of any food, and who .are obliged to subsist upon one meal a day, and that of the most nauseating kind, I I'M see it staled that theU. S. Troops arc concentrated from all sections of the union, at Trenton N. J., and will be regularly encamped during the summer months lo the number of several thousand. One of "honest Amos '" agents, a Post Master in Arkansas, it is said cannot read. In distributing the mail he measures it, tending to the large offices three pecks—to tlie next in grade a half bushel—and so in down. If he is like some of the rest of the leg bail chaps, ho will ere long sele...

THE WINE CUP. The Wine-cup! touch it not! Youth, take thy hand away! Poverty fills it up, With ruin and decay. Oh, youngster, heed thee well. Ere thou hast quaffed a drop—The seeds of death, are there, Whose woik thou canst not stop! That wine-cup, spurn it hence—Though it may sparkle well—The ugh it be oid and red. And suit thy palate well. Oft 'tis the fatal goal Whence leads the drunkard's path; Then heed it, youngster, well—Shun the woes a drunkard hath! When, in the festive hall, Thou mect'st a jovial band, When merry goes the hour, Where voices are sweet and bland! Should there the wine-cup come, Creating higher joy, Oh, spurn the wine-cup then, Tis dangerous, my boy. When in the wide world, youth, fhou hold'st thy d;\ious way, If from the path ot truth, Temptations lead astray—If urged to drain the glass, With thoughtlcs*, heedless men, Oh, as thou lov'st thyself, Touch not the wine-cup then. Should hours of darkness come, And thy heart's purpose fail, Should life to ...

THE LOAFER TO HIS LOVc. My sweet, my werry lovely dame, I cannot vol conscal The love vieffin my bosom burns, And rich my looks reveal. 1 valks the city up and down, And loaf, and sigh, and drink, But still thy image fills my soul, In every thought I think. With hands stuck in my holey pants, With eyes vich wed the ground, I valk along unquietly, Unknowin where I'm bound. My tendarc, bleeding hart is thine; Here in the tender flour of youth, I pledge myself to thee alone, And aware I speak the truth. O cum my dear to thy fond swanc, The queen of loafers be; If I don't luv thee, brake my neck, Or pitch me in the sea. Thou shan't have nothing hard to do, No work shall trubbul thee, But free from care, from cash, from pain How happy you vil be! I've got a pretty little house, Vith jist vuu little room, The Vorkus is my grand hotel, And there thy charms shall bloom. How nise our time vil glide along, I'll love thee till I die; I'll steel for thee all food vol's good, From mutton...

Adams County. On Friday last, the special election was held in this county to fill the vacancy occasioned by ihe tyranical outrage committed by the creatures of the Do;- A' onpers—The Hopkins Mouse. The Loco Focus we believe, calculated upon debating Mr. Stevens, who was again a vol unteer befoie the people, avowing big wish to meet the usurpers in the Hall, and tell them of their shame and villiany. He sought no party nomination, but prcsen. • ed himself as the candidate of un injured peop l e. We have just learned, thai they sustained him -nobl y and triumphantly Mistained him, and he goes back to thiit Hall, to tell them of their violations of law. They dreaded—they feared his presence. His till mts—'us integrity, and ¦vithall his boldness and zeal, made them tear s ich an exposure as tliey knew hL . would give them. But he is with them vet: and the mistrahle things of circumstance—the miserable n.etes of power vm were engendered in the hot bed of oriuption and knavery, w...

The Canal. Wis have now been four years on this division of the Pennsylvania cana1 , and we cuii safely say that at no one lime during thatpeiiod, has there been such culpable neglect and tardy operations by the Slate officers. Not hardly a week, we might almost say a day passes that there is not a break in the canal. Some twe week:; since a huge break occurred below Lewistowu, which was not repaired for ten days, although onehalf that time was considered sufficiently long to have had it finished. Before this break was passed we believe by all the boats, another occurred about 15 miles below this place, and was occasioned by the most consummate carelessness, if we have been ri ghtly informed. On Ihursday, a very severe rain tell, and raised the small springs &c which empty into the canal, and the lock keeper, the foremen and all, were somewhere where they should not be, and never discovered it until the level was full to overflowing, and the breach already made in th...

Canoe Creek I'ost Office. tor some cause or other the people who reside about this i'ost Office, have fallen under the displeasure of .Amos, or some of his paltry " pimps, panders, and parasites," who infest every section of the country, and whose match of mind gen. erally marches out of the country with some uf uncle's treasure in their pockct--generally known as leg treasurers. But so it is lor some cause not yet asceitaintfd tlie people of this district of our count/ can have no Post Office; and the only cause that can possibly be imagined is that there is no Loco Foco knaea there to take charge of it. For a number of years this 'Post Offico has been located, and now for the firs t tune it has been take.i away, and the citizens are obliged to climb over a mountain five miles either way, to learn whether they have any thing in the office.

AWFUL THUNDER STORM. A MOTHER STRUCK DEAU IN THE MIDST OF HEIt INFANTS. From ihe correspondence of the Toronto Patriot, we learn that early on the morning ot the 28th March, a " dreadful storm of thunder and lightning visited river St. Clair, and that "soon after daylight the inhabitants wcie made acquainted with thc following meluncholly and heart-rendering accident:—- 1/r. Henry Agar, residing an the river bank, about a mile above this place, who, with 3 others had been out all night, doing duty, as volunteers, about daylight returned home with the intention of taking rest. On his near approach to the house, he discovered the ridge boards somewhat out of older, and on approaching still nearer he discovered fragments of wood, broken glass, etc., which impressed his mind thnt the house must have been injured by the alarming storm. He opened the uoor, when he found oiv. of his little daughters, six years old, and another three years, taking care of thc infant of nine months n...

From Ihe Nantucket Inquirer. SEA MONSTER. Hearing yesterday afternoon, that a whale had been caught at (he Sooth Shore, .ve look a horse-cart ride of four miles thither, with the view uf paragraphing the monster according to its deserts. It was a journey of much tribulation in one respect. Though the day was fine, the atmosphere was literall y crowded with horse-mnchetos— a sort of varment six times the size of an ordinary gallinippcr, though entirely harmless, save by the annoyance caused b y spreading their sprawl ing legs and wings over one's nose and ears, and eyes. They were so compact!* thronged, during the whole distance across the commons, that they actually iiiicommoded each other; and the attempt to look ahead, was like peeping li rough a shower of feathers, Apropos of vermin— wc believe the season has been extraordinary favorable to the production and growth of every species ot insect with which the vegetable kingdom has ever been infested. Possibly the coinpariti...

THE WHIRL WIND'S WRATH." A letter to the editor of the Crawford "talesman, published at iUeadville Pa. thus describes the course and effects of a very heavy tempest of wind and rain, which passed through Cussewa^o township, in th t vicinity, on the 27th ultimo, about 6o'clock in the evening: 'It commenced on the farm of M'Far-I land & Co., by tearing up several large apple tn-es, and, passing along, levelled to the ground about an acre of sturdy beach and maple trees; then coming in contact with a new house, raized it to the very dust, and shattered it to atoms — Pieces of it were thrown in every direction;—beams and plates were cast liom two to six rods—rafters, sixty—and the roof was carried about one hundred. A s'.o.e,supposed to wei gh about 500 lbs., ¦ vus hurled about six rods, and broken to pees,and the windows were found three or lour miles distant.

vtSore .Vt'tc Officers. We see by the papeis that Mr. Joseph Rlter has been appointed superintendent upon the Juniata division of the Pennsylvania canal. Here, then, is another creation, for the purpose of plundering ihe St.ite Treasury. We lay for that pur-H'Se, because it is impossible to im. nagine any o'.her cause. Turee years ago, and du ring thc whole administration of Joseph Ritner, the Loco Foco press teemed with denunciations agiinst it for increasing State officers. They were horror stricken! Wo then showed b y figures that, even the iucrcas ed number of officers received less money for thei.- services than the old ones, Lecause their sallanes hatl been decreased. Yet notwithstanding nil this, their howls were incegHiint even up to the lust election, their papers complained uf the "hordes of officers sent upon them." This sounded well enough: it answered to gull the unsuspecting; and they succeeded: Now mark the issue. Where four supervisors performed the duties—un...
