Wo understand that on last Sunday four rafts ere "sfoveil" at what is known as the "Big Fitch," which ia the roughest piece of wafer in the mountains. It seems that one which -ifr. Samuel Schaffher was running got out of the course and awnng straight across. Anoth er, ia the care of Mr. Daniel Ogden, one of the best pilots on the river, was so close that he was compelled to strike the first one about the middle, which broke it in two. Mr. Og den's raft passed safely through the nperture, tmt a couple sticks of the broken raft getting under Lis, rendered it unmanageable, and it ran with such force against tLe rocks on the right hand shore that it was torn to pieces, no two sticks remaining together. Mr. Ogden had previously warned the other hands of their danger, and when the raft struck they suc ceeded in jumping on the shore, rocks, with the exception of Mr. James Flanagan, a citi xen of this place, wh...

When my nnclouded spirit beamed With hopes as bright as morning's car. In youth's fond dreams, I bailed the beams Of love's sun glimmering from afar. I met thee, and in thy pure heart, I deemed my hopes and faith might dwell, With as firm trust as in that power That o'er my childhood breathed its spell ; And hopes of fame. Linked wi'.h thy name ; I loved the chain, I fear, too well. It passed I scarce know how or why ; And from my mind I strove to blot All thoughts and memories of thee. And deemed, at last, thou wert forgot. In the cold world. By passion hurled, I pleasure sought, but found it not. That unrelenting pride, which once, By thee aroused, subdued love's flame, Still in my boom fiercely burns, A tenderer passion cannot tame. Too late, I fear.

The peculiarities of this great, "universal Yankee nation" of ours, have been a prolific theme, and the conclusion invariably arrived at is, that we are decidedly and unmistakcably a fast people that the "go ahead" principle predominates, let it be directed as it may, ei ther for good or fer evil. The term "fast" ex presses, perhaps, better than any other word, or any combination of words, the prevailing sentiment and condition of affairs. Our coun try, within comparatively a few years, from a dependent colony has advanced to the first po sition among the nations of the earth. A re cital of its progress seems more like the rela tion of a dream or incredible fairy tale, than a truthful narrative. The Age is, beyond all doubt, a progressive one not only in the arts, sciences, manufactures, agriculture, educa tion, religion, &c, bu...

Whenever Locofocoism finds itself short of reasonable objections to a candidate opposed to it, the leaders and journals of that party im mediately call Liu an "Abolitionist," and the time was when there was potency in this cry, and doubtless influenced mauy persons, who may have been favorably inclined towards a candidate, to cast their rotes against him. But that period, we think, has gone by.
