FOR THE JOURNAL Mr. Editor Wilh your permission, I pro pose to occupy a few columns in your paper as my leisure may permit, in the investigation of the Independent Treasury Bill, as it has passed the Senate of the U. S. i am fully persuaded that there has been no ques tion proposed to the people since the lirst or ganization of the government, that has been the object of such wholesale denunciaton and unfounded misrepresentation, on the part of its opponents, and I lear I may say that is so imperfectly understood by those who approve of it, as what is familiarly known as the Sub-Treasury scheme. The great object of those in opposition to the present admin istration has been to mystify and obscure an institution, which tor simplicity ot design and practacability of execution, has never been surpassed, and which in fact, is now, and has been since the adoption of the con stitution in practical operation in every state and county of the confederacy while the novelty ot the measure, and...

The Census. More than two months ago, we called attention to the act of Congress, which prescribes the manner of taking the census of 1840. We conceived it impor tant that the people should be advised thus early of its requisitions; because among the multifarious enquiries to be made by the mar shals, many of them were of such a nature as could not be properly answered without considerable reflection. These enquires are directed towards subjects of great general wieresu xucy areuesigusa u utsciose our national resources to an extent and with a minuteness never before attempted. Such being the fact, we were desirous that the an swer should be both full and accurate; and thus truly satisfy the intentions of the law. But, the public journals have taken so little notice of the subject, we are fearful that neo- ple generally have but a very imperfect idea of its requirements; and will in many cases be unable to render the desired information, with the piomptitude necessary to a season ab...

POETRY. From the Casket and Philadelphia Month! Magaxioe. CONSUMPTION. BT HISS T.. II. STOCKTON. All through the dreary winter months We nursed her lovely form, And Uembled at the slightest gale Or threatening of a storm. How solemnly we guarded her, How tearfully caressed And oh! with what an anxious gaze We watched her troubled rest! And when the searching winds of March, Swept by with moaning sound, How still became our hearts with fear, How pale each face around. And eagerly yet half afraid, We marked the slightest change, And fancied in her tones of love A cadence sadly strange. We could not bear to see her fade To note her tailing voice, E'en though its murmured melody Still faltered out rejoice! Her eyes looked larger than of yore, Hei brow more purely white; And oh! we shuddered when she held Her hand against the light. That hand was tremulous and thin, Yet oft, when tears were shed, She pressed it tenderly in turn Upon each drooping head! O she was lovelie-every hour, And d...

Diary and . Chastelar. The following beautiful passage we copy from the North American Magazine; it is from an article entitled Passages on the life of Mary Stuart.' It is one of thrilling inter est. Chastelar, all must premsie, had ma le a confession of his passion for Mary, who had, with proper dignity repelled him; the relation then continues: An hour had scarcely elapsed, before the lights were extinguished throughout the vaulted halls of Holyrood; the guards were posted for the night, the officers had gone their rounds, the ladies of the royal circle were dismissed, and all was darkness nnd silence. In Mary's chamber a single lamp was burning in a small recess, before a beautifully executed painting of the vir gin, but the light was not sufficient to pene trate the obscurity which reigned in the many angles and alcoves of that irregular apartment although the moonbeams were admitted through the open casement. Her garb of ceremony laid aside, her love ly shape scantily veiled by...

POETRY. From the Missouri and Illinois Temperance Herald. ., THE GREAT MOUTH. Come fathers, mothers, daughters, sons; The high, the great, nnd little ones; Come, bold your peace, to me give ear, I'll tell you tilings a little queer. The object of my little poem. You'll surely find not far from home, He lives in tow n and country too. His name you'll guess, and that'll do. He's sure a beast in human shape, Yet not at all like Jackanape. From east to west, from north to south. There's none that's got so large a mouth, He eats his meat just like us all. But takes for drink, things great and small; Hear what they arc, and oh my eyes! He swallows things of awful size: A farm he had, a, home most dear, But bartered both for rum and beer, Not only home, but homestead things, Such as would comfort Queens and Kings. At first he drinks his cash all down, And then he goes "on tick" in town; Next down he drinks his spades and hoes, Then ploughs nnd mattocks down he throws; JNowsiieep and cattle...

From the Ohio Democrat. BOYS, DO YOU HEAR THAT!" Twenty sis years ago last Autumn, (said a gentleman to'us the o:her day), I was a boy tending school in a log cabin, with no other windows than the light afforded through the space of two logs, by the re movalof a piece of the third, with greasy bits of paper pasted on as a substitute, for glass. This cabindedicated to learning was situated in the out-skirts of a now popu lous town in Pennsylvania. No state in the Union furnished more, or tetter sol diers for the defence and protection of the Northern frontier of Ohio, during the late war. than did Pennsylvania; not a lew of her sons were in the army surrendered by Hull, besides numbers of her "brave follow ers were massacred and scalped at Winches ters and Dudley s deleft; still the alter cail of Gen. Harrison for more soldiers, was an swered by large numbers of Pennsylvani ms, including several from our village. The deoarture of these brave fellows from thru families and friends was...

POETRY. Spring. The sweet South wind so long Sleeping in other climes, on sunny sea's Or dallying with the orange-trees In the bright land of song, Wak js unto us and laughingly sweeps by like i glad spirit of the sunlit sky. The laborer at his toil Feels on his cheek its dewy kiss, and lifts His open brow to catch its fragrant gifts The aromatic spoil Borne from the blossoming garden of the South, While its faint sweetness lingers round his mouth. The bursting buds look up The cheer the sun-light, while it lingers yet On the warm hill side and the violet Ouen its azure cup Meekly, and countless wild-flowers wake to fling Their earliest incense on the gales of spring. The reptile, that hath lain Tomid sa lone within his wintry tomb, iPiexces the mould, ascending from its gloom . - ' ' Up to the light again And the lithe snake crawls forth from caverns chill . -To bask as erst upon the sunny hill Continual songs arise From Universal Nature birds and streams Mingle their voices, and t...

THE INDEPENDENT TREASURY B1LC Mi: Editor: la the view which I shall take of the subject under discussion, I slial una it necessary to my purpose to pass in review before my readers the expediency and necessity of a National B.ink.

From the Palmyra Courier. 1 OBITUARY. DIED, on Saturday evening the 16th inst-,atthe residence of her father in this town, Miss Ellxn Wright, in the 16th year of her age. Gone! in youth's delightful morning, ' While the scenes of life were bright; ! And the skies, with gay adorning, Sheds around a glorious light! . Gone! while Hope's delightful measure, Gladden with its wildening strain And the fairy hand of pleasure Wove with fldwers her silken chain'! She has passed away, the garlands of life nave been sundered, and the beautiful spirit has soared to its far home in the heavens. We can scarcely realise that this gentle young lady has departed. But a short time since she was one of the brightest ornaments of society beloved, almost worshiped by a numerous circle of friends of an age when the heart has not been chilled by grief or the mind darkened by sorrow; and yet Death has flapped his "funeral wing" over her, and she dwells in the peaceful mansions of the de parted. It is an awf...

We recently publish ed an article on this subject trom the New York Evangelist, a religions paper, which earnestly remonstrated against the political drinking frolics of the day; and we now sub join a few sensible remarks upon the same topic, made a few days ngo at the annual temperence convention of the State of Con necticut, held at New Haven.
