Editor. S?a?urflty, December 23, I8U5. Constitutional Amendments Suffrage Eobert Sale Owen. Jut now the rage seems to be for amendments to the constitution. Some of these are proposed as aids to get out of present difficulties, others look to a prevention of future evils like the ones we are now passing through. On our first page there will be found one proposed by Robert Dale Owen worthy of consideration, Mr. Owen is a clime thinker and a strons wrifer. But while we approve his spirit and the majority of his argument, we think, nevertheless, that his positions are open to criticism in some respects.

The Greeks had a pastime called hippas, which, we are told, was one person riding upon the shoulders of another, as npon a horse; a sport of this kind was in practice with us at the commencement of the four teenth century, and is still occasion ally seeu in some parts of the coun try; it is performed by two compel iters, who struggle one with the oili er, and ne wno pulls his opponent irom me snouiaers or his carrier is the victor. A soft piece of turf is usually chosee for this sport. ANNITVERSTAN. There was once an honest Ger man who wanted to see a little of the Northern world, and so left the little village of Tottlingen, and set out on foot for Amsterdam, the great and rich capital of Holland. He knew not a word of Dutch, and quite forgot that the people do not speak German, but quite a different language. When he arrived at Am sterdam he wandered through the fine s...

Pet was silting there in one of her thoughtful moods; I. could see thio' the side window, though the luxuri ant grape-vines hid me completely from view. At first sight the boy startled mc.

Instead, a smile broke over her face like a burst of sunshine. Pet made us often tremble, often 'sigh her father and me. Not that she was preternaturally good or giv en to extraordinary speeches; but there was a strange attractiveness about her an unearthliness tho' we never would say the word to each olhsr.
