NICARAGUA- The following description of Nicara- gua, jrill, at the present time, be inter- esting : On the West it is washed by^tffe Pa- cific Ocean, and partly on tbeTSast by , the waters on the Caribbean Sea. the Mosquito Territory forming a large sha*e of its eastern boundary. Hondu- ras borden it on the North, and Costa Rie* upon the South. Its area is about forty-nine thousand square miles, and the population is estimated at two hun- dred and forty seven thousand. The fe- males are said to greatly exceed the males in number. Not more than twen- ty thousand of the people are whites, the rest being negroes, Indians and mixed races: Most of the population live in towns, many of them going several miles daily to labor in the fields. The plan tations are scattered pretty equally over the country, and are reached by paths •o obscure as to almost escape the no- tice of travellers, who are thus liable to fall into the error of supposing that the country is almost uninhabited.

i American. 9 th 1855. ,IN 1955. |pkj First, let ús look at Samaritanism at it* present itege. It may be compared <9 beautifal, and very rare rose, that has sprung up in « desdrt land, fer away from any of its kindled, with many ene- mies to contend with. It is never greet- ed by a cool refreshing shower; no fair hand to prune it, or revivo its leaves with a single drop of water; nOone, who will guard it with watchftd care, and ad- mire and smile upon its first bright buds at the opening of spring. Yet it flour- ishes and grows, and at each returning season is laden with blushing flowers— blooming there unseen, in timid modesty. There is an invisible, ever watchful spir- it, that nightly looks down from its ce- lestial home and feeds it with silver dew, weeping, Hlptrkling emeralds upon its ihifsty bosom. f íet Us suppose many years to have passed away, and we hare paid that rose- • bush a visit. We scareely know it to so much changed it is; It and spreading, and as large ble for...

A lawyer <£ decided abilities, he stood deservedly very high in the estimation of his fellow citizens ; in fact, he was a tiptop specimen of up- per tengpm, a generous, free hearted, good fellow; a bon vivant, and not averse to the idea that Paul's injunction to Timothy," to take a little wine for the stomach's sake," was good gospel—very applicable and pleasant, even at this mod- Crifdthe Col. had a fault, he couldn't help it, it was constitutional inability to take a Utile wine This appetite fairly aroused knew no oheck, he couldn't stop at the propet time; the idiosyncracy of his volatile nature forbade it.
