LINES : tTBITTEN ON THE DEATH OF A— K— . BY CLARA Jl'USTOS. They have laid thee in "the grave, Addic, The cold and silent tomb; Thy soul has fled from earth, Addic, To thy eternal home. / - Wo miss thy joyous laugh, Addie, And thy steps so light and free, ! As if home on zephyrs soft and cool, From the distant, rolling sea. But thou hast found thy rest at last, Life's cares shall vex no more—Thou hast left behind thee sorrowing hearts, Whose grief is deep and sore—We followed thee to the grave, Addie, We saw the cold, damp sod Placed on. thy breast so joyous once, '. .. And gave thee up to God. * 'Twas a bitter, bitter pang, Addie, ,i To rend true hearts in twain, To close those dark deep eyes, which will Ne'er beam on us again. Beneath the earth that fell, Addie, Upon thy silent tomb, The hopes that we had cherished oft Forever were supprest. - The love we felt for thee, Addie, Remains as true and pure, As though we had not left thee now To see thee nevermore!

THE HEART'S SACRIFICE, OK, IXCIDENTATTHE BATTLE OFGER3IAXTOW5 Wistovitnl Sfcetcfj BY LAWRENCE LABRE. We have heard the story of a young roan who lived through the perilous times of our country. He was ardent and patriotic, and thirsted to be a sharer in the "glories which our brave armies plucked from the bristling bayonets of the enemy ; yet he had been withheld! from joining the ranks by aged and infirm parents, whose only support and comfort he was. As he looked upon the feebleness of their old. age, and thought of the perils they would beesposed to, with no defender to their helplessness, he would sigh for the destinies of his country, and resign himself to the duties of the small farm that was their support. He could not desert them and leave them to the mercy of the vagabond stragglers from the enemy's camp, and worse, traitors of his own country. Instances-were too fresh in his memory, of reverend heads and hoary locks having been crushed to the dust by midnight plu...

Item oi Revolutionary History. From the Lewishtrg Chronicle. ^ Major James Rees died at Geneva, N. Y., March 24, 1851, aged 85 years. He was born in Philadelphia, of a Welch family, and was in early life the confidential clerk of Robert Morris the illustrious Financier of the Revolution. Mr. Rees held the office of Quartermaster General under General Washington in the time of the Whiskey Insurrection, in 1794, also under Generals Wilkinson and Izard, in the war of 1814, was land agent and cashier of the bank of Geneva, and lastly, postmaster under General Harrison—all of which stations he filled with advantage to all concerned, and retired with unspotted honor. With the best opportunities forjjecoming rich, he preferred a moderate but sure competency. The following incident related by Major Rees—illustrative of the real hardships and privations of the statesmen and soldiers who won our 'Nation's Libertv—was communicated to the New York Literary Worlds: " It was in the year...

Nathaniel Ela, or " Uucle Nat," as he was generally called, was "the corpulent, rubicond and jolly old landlord of the best hotel in the fiou'rishing village of Dover, at the head of the Piscataque, and was excessively fond of a bit of fun withal. He was also the owner of a large farm ii@i!ew Durham, -about twenty miles distant, the overseer of which- was one Caleb Ricker, or " Boss Kale," as termed by the numerous hands under his control, and sufficiently waggish for all practical purposes of fun and frolic. Caleb, like a wise and prudent man, had a wife; and so had " Uncle Nat," who was accustomed to visit his^arm every month or two, to see how matters went on. O...

Chief Justice Gibson. it is a question ot doubt wuethcr Unlet Justice Gibson will receive a nomination from either party for the post which he now holds with so much honor, credjt and ability. We do not know whether thc Judge is a Whig or a Locofoco, nor do \ve care; but arc satisfied that no man in the Stale of Pennsylvania will ever again fill the post with the same amount of Jegal intelligence that1 it is now done. He is a man of towering intellect, great legafknowledgc, and is considered by the soundest lawyers in thc Union, a truly master spirit It would.be good policy for both parties to nominate him under the circumstances, in order that thc place may be ably filled. The Reading Journal copies an article from the Germantown Telegraph, which nominates him for the Bench, and adds—" So far as wc can learn thc bar and community here heartily approve-of the suggestion. Judge Gibson has been an ornament to the legal profession of the country, and has added to thc dignity of a...

South Carolina. The threatened outbreak and nullification move, roents in South Carolina, have generally been regarded by tho people of the North, as mere schemes for effect, and no one at all supposed the sincerity attached to the same; but matters have lately assumed suclr an aspect as to convince us that there really is determination among the leading spirits in this rebellious State, to make at least an attempt at nullification and seceesjon from the Union. The convention which was assembled at Charleston a few weeks since, adjourned by declaring the State ready for unconditional secession, and recommended to the next Legislature to carry out this design, by declaring South Carolina no longer a member of the Unifed States. The object of JJk^se miserable traitors is to set up the independent Republic of South Carolina, where they can rule, act and lord it, as they think, to their hearts' desire. However, these things are more; easily threatened than accomplished. They wil...

ui to President and Associate Judges. an me oujeers be chosen at the next election, says the State Journal, wc regard the Judges as the most important to the community. Wlicther wc consider the long term of their office, their elevated and responsible station, or thc vast range and effect of their duties, the subject is one of deep and vital interest They are to sit in judgment upon life, liberty, and property, arid we hold that the utmost care is requisite«m their selection. A President Judge should be learned in the law, familiar with the Reports, decided, not doubling and timid, beyond tho suspicion of fear, favor or affection, of unquestioned integrity, and of recognized sobriety. He should also be kind to those subordinate to him, not self-willed or dictatorial, elegant, rather than rude in his manners. Ability without good moral character in public stations of trust and importance, is but a curse to all whoso interests are involved. The Associates should be equally men...

more Free Trade. Mr. Gonder, Contractor for tho Hanover Branch Railroad, has contracted for the rails for thc road, with a firm in Liverpool, England. They arc the T rail, and to be manufactured in Wales. They will bo dplivcrad in Baltimore in September next, for $40,000. Tho Hanover Spectator remarks: It. may be asked .by those who are not well .posted in our national affairs, why the iron is purchased in a. foreign country ? This is owing to the humiliating fact that iron can be purchased, brought and delivered "in this country, at the doors of our own Pennsylvania Iron Works, for less than it is even manufactured here. Tho cause is.the want of a Tariff sufficiently protective to our best State interests. So far from our Iron works in this country being able to sustain themselves against this foreign competition, the Sheriff, and with him ruin and bankruptcy, are closing nearly every one in the State! It is the want of a proper Tariff. Wc hope the party who dearly cherishes ...

Farmers Emigrating to Virginia. Some of the best farmers in Western New York have purchased lands in Viginia, and will soon become cultivators of the soil in that State. In a letter to the editor of the Gennessee Farmejrf of a recent date, from Proctor's creek, Chesterfield county, Virginia, the writer Says : I am anxious for a company of Northern farmers, say from one hundred to one hundred and fifty, to purchase a tract from twenty to forty thousand acres, within twenty or thirty miles of.the principal cities and tide water, at or near a railroad or water-navigation. It will be but thirty hours travel by railroad from New York and forty-eight hours bv steamer. Some of these lands are well improved and have fair buildings ; and their average may be four dollars per acre. The climate is salubrious nrfti admirably adnpted to fruit culture. The following prices are common fqr the crops named: Wheat SI.05 and $1 per bushel; corn, 70 to 75 cts.; rye, 65 to 70 cts.; buckwheat, Si...

View Costume—How it Takes. The Keposha (Wis,) Telegraph says: There is" no reform which is correct in theory, which cannot find some indepen. dent spirit in Kenosha, to reduce to practice. On Wednesday afternoon two of the wives of our most respectable citizens appeared in short dresses and pants. The fashion on the whole is appropriate, and has some show of common sense to back it. If anything, the frocks are a little too long, and the pants a little too full. We admire the independence of the ladies who dare do ns they please—what business is it to the carping and barking crowd, if the ladies of this city ate tired of using their dresses to sweep tho crossing and sidewalks? The ladies oT Milwaukie, Racine, and Eagleville, can now get rAeir dresses made and come here and wear them, till they get used to them, and our ladies will return with you, and assist in breaking up the mock modesty of your hen-hussied villages. The fact is, "its a go," and it will not be long, before th...

The Wailing of a Panther, and Weeping of a Crocodile.. It is an old and well-known belief among American backwoodsmen, (and they are as good authority as Oliver Goldsmith,) that when a panther, is hungry and feels disposed towards cannibalism, and prefers the lender flesh of a man to that of cattle, he utters mournful and wild cries, similar to the lamentations of a child, or the shrieks of a woman in distress. Some brave and good natured traveller wandering along the road thro' the wilderness, hears the cries, hurries to the spot, intending, to protect at the expense of his life-blood, a child, or a woman in -danger or distress, and, perhaps too late, discovers by the glare of the eyeballs that he is within the leap of a beast of prey. So, we are told, that when a crocodile wishes' to allure a stranger to his jaws, the interesting, and amiable beast, like the Hebrew Patriarch '' lifts up his voice and weeps." Who does not remember tho professions of the opposition of particul...

The Michigan Conspiracy. I The Detroit Tribune of April 26th gives the I following chapter from the history of the late conspiracy of desperadoes in that State. The story seems almost incredible. Is not some one practising upon public credulity for some sinister purpose? The schemes concocted, and the system under which the gang of ruffians, recently^ arrested-along the line of the Central Rail- j road, were drilled, and the depths to which j they, were ready to sink themselves in j crime and depravity, may be partly infer-1 red from the following leaf in the history of their conspiracy. At one of the regular meetings, which they were in the habit of Jiolding periodi cally at their place of rendezvous, for the purpose of consultation as to future movements, and the division of plunder, it was reported by some, in the order of business, that one of their sworn number, whose name was stated, had been detected in revealing some of the secrets that should have been known only to...

Tins will not be the first „me fhat these gentlemen have been in competition for popu- ' lar favor ; and the auspices, we may trulv say, are altogether in favor of.the former But Gov. Johnston at this time has not to depend upon the hopes and anticipation of his friends as when he first came before fto people. His reputation as a statesman, was not then established as it now is. Though known to be eloquent and popular, and to possess a sound, discriminating judgment, and talents of a high order, he had not distinguished himself as a Statesman, in the discharge of high trusts. But the case is now very different. He has for the last three years been placed in that trying position of Governor of this great Commonwe...
