, A Visit to an English Cottage I entered a third cabin. Here the green earth smiled again, as did the modest furze and glossy holly, that felt not the approach of winter. The floor was much like the first. Near the middle sat the mother "peeling potatoes, which she threw into a pot at her side half filled with 'water. * I introduced myself oh" every occasion ^ by saying, that I came from beyond the seas,, and wished to inform my countrymen how the laborers lived in England. Sixpence, brought forth willing answers to iitterogatortes, which I put without stint. '" •'-¦ . " How many children have you ?"—'"' Eight." " What did they feed upon this morning?" '. " Potatoes." "What wi(l you give them for dinner?" ''These potatoes you see me peeling." "Nor thing else?" «' No; nothing else."

The Presidency. 1 ' The question of selecting a candidate for the Presidency, to be supported by the democratic party of the nation, seems finally to be settled. Martin Van Buren, oPNewYork, is the chosen standard-bearer of the Republican party in the great conflict which is to come off in 1844. We have been the early and sincere friend of Richard M. Johnson for the Presidency, anxiously hoping that he might be the man who should lead the 'Republican forces to" the onset. Our confidence in the talents, patriotism and sound republican principles of Col. Johnson is unchanged. Out respect for his great and illustrious services is unaltered. . But the question is no longer an open one. [ State, after state has declared for Mr. Van Buren, and he already iu fact stands before the American democracy as their regular candidate for the Presidency. What then is our duty to the country—to the democratic party ? - Shall we • make a factious opposition to the ack nowledged candidate of...

Witbdrairal of Mr. Gaihonn. The Charleston Mercury contains a letter of considerable length from the Hon.,John C. Calhoun, withdrawing his name from the list of candidates for the Presidency, its length precludes the possibility of its admission entire into our columns; but we will give a synopsis of his reasons (or declining.— Mr. C. says that be has ever left it to his friends, to conduct the canvass as they saw best, hot waiving the right to determine on his individual responsibility ; that he had agreed with them as to the manner of appointing delegates to the Convention,'that he cannot now permit his name to go before the proposed Convention consistently with the principles which' have ever guided his public conduct. That.as it is;at present constituted it is repugnant, in his opinion, to all the principles on which such a Convention should be formed. He then enters fully into the present mode of forming a Convention, which he considers calculated to annihilate contro...

jsevra from all Nations. The office of the Episcopal Recorder, in Philadelphia, was entirely consumed by fire on the evening of the 2d inst. "' '• .'-;i-.'-v Dickens is in pecuniary difficulty and unable to pay his debts. Friday next is the day appointed by the Executive warrant ft>r| the execution - of the Dotans. The gallows is already erected and other necessary preparations already made by Sheriff Weston.' The extreme privacy of the execution, and utter impossibility of viewing it will have the effect, we hope, of causing ""persons, who are generally attracted by such scenes of horror^ to remain at home. A young woman named Scott, was terribly burned at Stonington, Conn., by her clothes taking fire. She is not expected to recover. It is again rumored that the Hon. Rufus Choate is about to resign his seat in the U. S. Senate.. A steamboat 265 feet in length and 1200 tons burden, is being built at Cleaveland for lake navigation.
