COURTSHIP. DY THOMAS MOOBE. Oh! Laura!!—will nothing T bring thee E'er soften those looks of disdain? Are the songs of affection I sing thee • All dooni'd to be sung thee in vain? 1 offer thee fairest and dearest, A treasure, the richest I'm worth; I offer the, love, the sincercst, The warmest e'er glowed upon earth? But the maiden, a haughty look flinging, Said, 'cease my compassion to move: For I'm not very partial to singing, And they're poor whose sole treasure is love.' My name will be sounded in story—I offer thee, dearest, my name, I have fought, in the proud held of glory! Oh Laura come share in my fame! 1 bring thee a. soul that adorcth thee, And loves thee wherever thou art, Which thrills as its tributes it brings thee Of tenderness fresh from the heart.' But the maid said, 'cease to importune; Give Cupid the use of his wings; Ah, fame's but a pitiful fortune—And hearts arc such rainless things!' 'Oh Laura, forgive, iflv'e spoken Too boldly—nay turn not away—For my h...

Murder of John XV. Moore. From the Louisville Journal. A gentleman direct from Alexandria, La., has handed us the Red River Whig of the 6th instant, which appears in deep mourning. It records the murder of John W. Moore, its able and chivalrous editor, so long and well known in this city, as the zealous, the noble, and the eloquent advocate of fl hig principles. For the want of room, wo must limit ourselves to a brief history of the events, that led to the perpetration of this most ruffianly and bloody deed. After the establishment of Mr. Moore's paper at Alexandria, the friends of the administration in that vicinity soon perceived, that, by the rapid, vigorous, and powetful productions of his pen, he was fast breaking down their cause throughout the State. In the startling results of the first elections in and around Alexandria, they saw all their gloomy fears confirmed. They saw, that there were no hope lor them but in silencing the eloquent voice of the Whig champion, ani...

Delegate *r County Meetings. By a reference to another part of our paper, it will be scene that the county com mittce have called the annual meetings , for the election of Delegates to attend the county convention. Upon each annual return of these meetings we have endeavored to direct tho at tention of the people to the great necessity of energetic action lat these primary meetings. If these meetings in every township, 'were generally attended, and a fair and candid interchange of sentiment had, thcn'would the delegntes'comc into the convention, confident that they could perform tho task allotted to them, with perfect satisfaction to the people. But, as it is too often the lease, butjfew assemble at the places of meeting, and not unfrequent ly those few are such as feel alono interested in the personal sucess ol some one individual. The consequence is, that the voice of the people is not heard. We dislike this state of things. We go for the supremacy of the peoples' voice in...

The Investigation* The citizens of our county havo undoubtedly, heard much of tho operations of the Inquisitor General, Dr. Espy. Lest however thero may be some who are not wholly acquainted with him, and his operations, we must give a short account of the causes which sent him upon us. At, or immediately after the meeting of the Legislature last winter, a joint committee of both houses, were appointed, in connection with the auditor General, to examine, and pass sentence upon the vouchers of Jas. Steel Esq. as disbursing officer on the Break. This it was found would not answer their purpose. They desired something that was calculated to de more good to the party, than an honest examination of the accounts. Conse quently the committee of the house being Loco Focos, neglected to act with this joint committee, and of course nothing was done. This was just what they wanted. Just before the adjournment they refered the whole matter into the hands of Dr. Espy, Porter's auditor Ge...

It was manufactured by Mr. Wilbank of Philadelphia.

The "Distinguished Individ w«i7' We learned In the "Advocate," that David R. Porter "the distinguished individual" had arrived in our town, and was ready to shake hands with any dirty-shirt democrat that might present himself. This was kind and consideratejof this 'distinguished individual.' Of all pieces of paltry toad-eating, fulsome ^ sycophancy, that we ever read, the article alluded to cxcells. It talks of his 'true greatness,' because the 'flatteries of the multitude'—'the blandishment of office' has left him the same 'unostentatious, plain practical comruonscuse |man' that they found him. He'takes the laborer or mechanic by the hand' with the same cordiality that he would a man with a clean shirt. Well that is geod! Laborers and mechanics don't wear clean shirts, and governor Porter and his office holding scribe have found it out, yet, with all this against them, this 'distinguished indiwidooaV will take them b y the,hand. Is not all this a little remarkable? 'This di...

Tell the Truth! That "distinguished individual" who fills the chair oi otate, in a certain message dated the 2Gth January, 1839, to which was attached his name, discoursed after this wise, (or somebody for hiin:) Those acquainted with the farts can imag ine the kind of man he is that will thus sport with truth. You will observe this is no here say, the personal examination of this "distinguished individual" is authority for what he says; and the result has proven that he was very much mistaken >in judgement—or much mistaken in representing the facts; some maybe disposed to say, "either knave or fool." There is no occasion for us to say so, for it is general known that wc esteem him both. Butdontlctus forget our story: so to the message. It says : "I will .-.'.so state on this subject, that at the solicitation of a number oi gentleman deepl y interested in the transporting busi nets on our public improvements, I was induced a short time ago, to make a personal examinat...

TERRIFIC TORNADO. A tornado passed through a part of Connecticut on Wednesday altcrnoon, which was terrific in its operation. The first account wc liava of it is from New Haveu, whereat about noon, it destroyed several buildings, part of them brick.— The African church was among the buildings thrown down. At North Haven several houses were destroyed. Then it passed over the rail road track, cutting a channel foritself through every thing above the earth's serface, about sixty rods wide. As it left the direct line of travle at this point, we have beard nothing of its ravages until it arrived at East Windsor, where it was at 4 P, M. with unabated fury, tearing al | before it. Forest and fruit treos were scattered in all directions,and buildings torn down, and some of them of strong construct on. A gentleman who was in the stage at the time, passing from Ellington to East Windsor, says he never saw such a torrent of rain as poured down.—Several persons where whirled into the ai...
