U'UNION.^j [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 8 April 1817
U'UNION.^j The author of this article is among those who believe that a little temperate discussion on the subject of the pending election for congress in this disctrict, will produce the most desirable of all results, a union. His vanity does not amount to the notion that he is qualified much less that he has the right to dictate to his fellow citizens; but he is under the strongest conviction that the important, the essential grounds of difference in opinions, between the two candidates, on political matters, have been lost sight of in frivolous objections which nave been' urged against each. : The respectability of the two gentle-1 men, considered in relation to their pri-| vate characters, seems to be universally I admitted; and the most odious, the most unpleasant task, that of depicting the in* firmitics and imperfections of human nature, is fortunately unnecessary The author of these remarks has had the hon* or of a long and intimate acquaintance with both the candidates, one...

At one operation it delivers the wheat. clean enough for market, and there can be run through, out of the chaff, from sixty to eighty bushels in one hour. In our presence it cleaned, out of the chaff, twenty two and a half bushels in twenty minutes. and there was in the chaff and grain an unusual quantity of short and tangled straw, which made it very unfavorable for fast cleaning In attending this fan, no person has to be exposed to the dust, as is necessary in attending the common fan. It is easy to turn, and runs light; and feeds itself in such a way that a great mixture of short and tangled straw...

THE ME CESS. fUOM TBS MIDDLESEX GAZETTE. [We insert the following little poem with double pleasure, as it is from the pen of a Boston bard, and a brother printer, who has recently laid before the public several neat poetic productions] FAME, WEALTH, BEAUTY AND RELIGION. Victor! what avails the wreath That erst entwin’d thy brow? Alas! those flowers no longer breathe, For death hath laid thee low; And what avails the storied urn That blazons forth thy fame? That sculptur’d vase to dust shall turn— Oblivion blot thy name. What too avads those scars so deep, Receiv'd in battle fray? "They're fir oof a of valor?"— Time shall sweep Thy valor’s proofs away:— And what avails the poet’s song, That sounds thy praises forth? The poet’s head shall rest ere long, Upon its mother earth. Av’rice! what avails thy dreams Of happiness and gold? The fun’ral torch already gleams, Thy days on earth are told; What now avails thy hoarded wealth? Is it with thee inurn’d? Na—“Naked from the earth you came....

WHAT IS RELIGION? It is not a blind attachment to sectari ah principles; it is not an overheated zea&lt; to p opagate the peculiar tenets of i,uther or Calvin; it is not going to meeting, building churches, and paying wed the priest; not keeping the sabbath strirth and violating the laws of God and ma l all the rest of the w ek thus straining at a gna 1 and swallowing a camel but it is a tine rational belief in the power wisdom love and good ness of God. man ife »ed in the works of creation and re demption, a contempt of the pleasuies which the world follow—a hope in futu rity—&lt;ove of God and man—doing as we woultl he done by—m short, it is exactly who St. James savs— Pure religion and undefiled before God and tne Father is this; to visit the widow and fatherless and to keep ourselves unspotted f-orn the world. ’ Purity of heart and benevolence of conduct. »
