From Mies’ Register. REVOLUTIONARY SPEECHES, ORATIONS, &amp;c.

Saturday, Jan. 18. —The bill was taken up for establishing a public library—according to its provisions the fund for the purchase of the. same was to come out of the public fund. After some discussion. the provisions were left blank) and the bill laid on the table. The speaker then called up the order of the day, when Mr. Tucker gave notice that he should call up the convention - refiort on Monday; among other reasons, to obviate an impression which he understood existed, that this question was kept back to await the fate of another measure now before the senate. Mr. Mercer hoped they might go into committee on that question to day, as he was aware of such an idea being afloat, though there was no connexion at all between the two measures. He intimated, that his mind was already made up, as to the convention—and that he was prepared to vote for the report of the select committee. The house then went into committee of the whole—when the usur...

LITERARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Genius of Liberty — 4 February 1817
LITERARY. K new work is announced to the public, entitled the MRS OF PALESTINE, t poem, by John Pierpont, esq. We have lot yet seen this work, but from the high encomiums heaped upon it by the editor of the National Register, and from a personal acquaintance with the author, we are induced to believe that it is a work of intrinsic merit. The poem is purely religious says the National Regis* ter; but as the author avoids all common points of controversy, and inculcates sentiments of the most liberal Warm-heart-ed charity, we venture to say. that any Christian—any good man, may read it without finding matter of offence The theme is sacred music; and as he remarks in the dedication, “most of the topics have been taken from that great fountain of religion, poetry and music the bible.” We heartily wish it every success to which it may be justly entitled.

THE BATCHELOR'S tVLSH, /’ Hi- H EVES S. Let other's praise a beauteous face, The features oi the fair; I look for spirit in her eyes And meaning in her air. What though she seem quite sweet and mild, With colour fresh astrorn; An innocent and harmless child As ever yet was born. This will not kindle my desire, Nor make me wish to wed; Lest ignorance should quench the fire, Which wisdom would have fed. What though her shape be faultless too, And carriage alamode, Her manner pleasing to the view Whene’er she walks abroad. The charming puppet may pass by, Or gently fall and rise; It will not hurt my peace, for I Have ears as well as eyes. I want to know the inward state And temper of her minds If she will pout, or rage, or fret, Be gentle, or unkind If her discourse be calm and staid, And judgment rule for life: Nonsense may charm us in a maid. But never in a wife, 1 love to see a female friend, Who looks as if she thought: Who to her household will attend, And do wliate’cr she ought. ...
