Tho sun had just passed his meridional altitude, and was blazing in bis full glory, in one of those clear cerulean skies which I have never seen equaled, oxcept in boiiio other portions of tho North American con tinent. The native forests, which bound cd on two sides the farm of Lundy's Lane, lay lonely and motionless ; and save for the noiso caused by the rapid motion of the wing of some beautiful little humming bird, fluttering occasionally from flower to flower, in the foliage of tho majestic and blossoming tulip tree, or tho hum of the la borious bco among the sweet bud and blossoms of the sugar maple, all was life less and still as tho grave. Tho roar of the ' mighty Niagara disturbed not the repose of the mid-day lassitudo that seem, cd everywhere to reign, for its thunder be camo softened and subdued throu...

I have purposely nmittcd to say any thing of the abilities of Mr Alien, his qualifica tions, or political course. Ho has been too long before the public to need any evidence of other than his conduct. Tlio district know him. and duly appreciate his worth. His friends may point to his conduct with a degree of exultation, and his political op ponents will bear testimony that he is a de cided whig. No committee will be sent to him to learn of what political faith he is at this particular time. The unanmity with which he was renominated by the Cam bridge convention wa& as flattering to him as it was creditable to them, while the tone of good feeling and manly determina tion evinced by them, is an almost certain indication of the deep and steady current that is setting through the district.

COMMUNICATIONS. want a now word or plirazo by which (o designate a class of men who havo be come quite common among us, I mean thoso who at particular times arc seized with sudden convictions of tho truth of great and leading measures, which they have long opposed and on particular occasions go over to tho opposite party nnd receive a particu lar roword. Time has been when any sudden change in tho political courso of a public man would have excited surprizo and unless good reasons were offered, public condemnation would have followod. But these changes arc now bo common that they aro not even a nine days wonder. The exercise of tho political franchise should be a matter of conscience, and the importance of a religious observance of it cannot be too often nor too strongly cn forced. It is tho ark of our safety, and the man that trifles with it is an enemy to his country, and in the eight of Heaven a per jured wretch. What hold havo wo upon the man that can trifle with duty ?

Stacv: In looking over the arti clcs in your paper on !he subject of the election, one is struck by (ho feverish anxi cty that is occasionally manifested. It is quite natural that our elections should be regarded with interest, it is proper that it should be so- The election is the combined will of a free people on the momentous subject of their own government, putting into practice those principles which bear on our prosperity. While therefore, il should be regarded with interest, there is no occasion for that restlessness so often displayed. The power is where it should be, in the hands of the public, in the hands of a people intelligent, virtuous and free. Where then is the ground of apprehension ? Th...

tional prosperity and national wealth arc I not synonymous terms. The aggregate amount of wealth may be increased while the number of prosperous individuals may bo diminished. Tho prosperity of the many should bo the chief object of gov ernment; nnd because credit Is not ben cficlnl to the many, it should not bo en couraged. There is a fallacy in the idea that credit is beneficial to the many; and on examina tion the convcrso of the proposition will be found true. Credit is generally given by the wealthy, und it is given in the expecta tion that they gain something by it : but it by no moans lollows that lliey who nt-k credit ore benefitted by it. Thoso who buy to sell again may bo benefitted, but the consumer who buys on credit always loses. It is well known that purchases for cash are made on better terms than when made on credit, the difference being about 12J cts on the dollar. This is a direct lax on the purchaser on credit, and it tends to make the rich richer and the poor poo...
