TO 3IY FATHER.
In childhood, dear father, I saw thee,
In the beauty and bloom of life.
Full able to struggle with care
And triumph in every strife.
Thou werthealthful,and stalwart.and strong
No sorrow upon thy brow ;
Not wrinkled and bowed in thy form.
Dear father, as thou seemest now.
And then, mid the trials of '.ife,
Thou ever wert tender to me,
And watched o'er my youthful years
As the mar iuer ocans the sea.
And now. when the winter oL life
Has fallen upon thy head,
And thou art so palsied and frail
Perhaps cn thy dying bed
It is meet that I should, in turn,
Watch over thy fading years.
And soothe, in some measure, thy pains,
And Eolace thy dying fears.

Dear Frceman-It is now eviileut to every
one who observes passing events, and who
reflects upon the new opinion which is arising
throughout the various States, that -some
great change, either for good or for evil, is
about to take place in fact, that a momen
tous crisis is at hand. Be it our task to dis
cern the fcigas of thj times, to wa'ch the pro
gress of tl.is crisis and direct it for good in
stead of evil, for good and evil in a pre-eminent
degree are cow before the country, m.d
r e ple should no longer defer making a choice
as to whether they thall adopt general mea
sures to attiki the former or ensure a contin
uance and increase of the latter.
The time is immediately before us when
either reason or physical violence of the
worst character must attain the mastery in
the future direction of the government which
is now deemed most civilised. This is the
important issue now before u. Calm reflec
tion, devoid of prejudice in favor of old er
rors, will convince every one, even our great
est Radical time-servers, that the re;d. sub
stantial, permanent inteiestsof mankind will
be prom tni by sub.-titwing reason for our
guide and director instead of mystery, fraud
Our most rabid Radical friends are now
commencing to see that all their hypocrisy
win oa unmasKeu, anil that Veritas vnicel
omnia. Many leading spirits among them
are coming to a sense of the right. The Press
no longer dwells on the topics of the day.
It is wavering. Col. Forney should return
from his perigrinatious and infuse, if possible,
new energy into its columns. The New York
lribune is also clearing the course and devo
ting its editorial pages almost exclusively to j
p .-c rr.. X " j .a. it. 'i' ! i
come over at once to the Democratic side ?
There is nothing more disgraceful or culpable
than tor persons to perMst in what they know
to be wrong.
If you had marked the many Radical
meetings which have lately been held in this
city you would agree with me in saying that
there are figns and tokens in the political
sky that give glimpses of a change that must
be lor the better. Hear or read of the au
thors of those insufferable calamities which
now afflict the people speaking at public
meetirjgs without having thought, or with
out having been trained from infancy to
think, correctly, in my opinion, on any sub
ject exciting the feelings and passions of
others by the fervor and copiousness of their
long harangues, in the midst cf which, if
there was a right or a lire, many would run
to witness it rather than iave their ears bored
by tl read-bar j)6li(icians engaged in deuour
cing certain public individuals and lauding
others to the skies, and when the speeches
are concluded the proper number of cheers
aud grrans are given, and the patience of
the audience, a large portion of whom, tho'
they hold up their hands iu support of res
olutions, cannot hear what those resolutions
are, being exhausted, all retire perfectly
satisfied with themselves, cordially detesting
their partisans, and anxiously looking for a
repoit of the speeches and resolutions in the
next day's papers, in perusing which you
will see that opposing seutiments have been
cheered by the same people. Thin, you fee,
Radical politicians are making meal and
mi k of thiDgs hero.
Then comes the morning press, rising in
the greatness of its strength, mighty to stim
ulate and prompt to cater, which seems to
guiilo public opinion because it follows it,
and under whose strong and exhaustive ap
peals the weak minds of the Radical multi
tude bend like standing corn bends when a
powerful TTlua sweeps over the t'eM.
Things are evidently changing for the
better. The Radicals are battling among
themselves, and we are assured that "the
house which is divided against, itself cannot
stand." So pitch in, men of Pennsylvania.
Embrace the opportunity take the advan
tage. Follow the noble example set you by
California, Maine, Connecticut, &c.
Now, at least, might we exclaim (in con
sideration of the change in the times, if not
from an intuitive conviction that the truth
fhall at last triumph,) with the wise Em
peror, Raon-Tasso, "The monarch depends
upon the nation at large, and the nation de
pends upon the laboring classes. To ex
tort from the people in order to present to
the monarch is like cutting the flesh from
one's body to fill the stomach. Tho fetom
ach may be filled, but the body will die
the monarch may be enriched but the coun
try will perish.'
This is an example for the radicals, who
are causing the people to be heavily tax-ridden
by keepiug a tremendous army In the
field ind filling their own stomachs by the
command thereof. " T. N. S.
In the year 1825, a young man 'who
was serving an apprenticeship in London
to a mastcr-sail-maker, got leave to visit
his mother to ppend the Cpiristma holi
days. She lived a few-miles beyond Deal
in Kent. lie walked theWirncy, and on
Lis arrival at Deal in the evening, being
much fatigued and also troubled--' with the
bowel complaint,' he applied to the land
lady of a public house, who was unac
quainted with his mother, for a night's
lodging. Her house was full and e'wery
bed occupied ; but f-ho told ' him that if
he would sleep with her uncle who had
lately come ashore, and was boatswain of
an Indiaman, h thjulubc we'eome. lie
was glad to accept the offer, and after
spending the evening with Lis new com
rade they retired to rest.
In the middle of the night he was at
tacked with his old complaint, nnd waking
his bedfellow, he asked him the way to
the garden. Tho boatswain told him to
go through the kitchen : but as lie would
find it difficult to open the door into the
ard, the latch beincr out of order, lie Ac.
- j j
sired him to take a Lnife out of his pocket
with which he could raise the latch. The
young man did as he was directed, nod
alter remaining nearly half an hour in the
yarn, lie returned to his bed, but was
much surprised to find that his old com
panion had risen and gone. Deing impa
tient to visit his mother and friend?, he
also arose before day and pursued his
journey, and arrived at home nt nn(,i
The landlady, who had been told of Lis
intention to depait early, wa3 not sur
prised; but not feeing her uncle in the
morning, she went to call him. She was
drtadiully shocked to find the bed stained
with blood ; and every inquiry after her
uncle was in vain.
The alarm now became general, and on
further examination, marks of blood were
traced from the bedroom into the street,
and at intervals down to the edge of the
pier head. Humor was immediately busv,
and Euspicion fell of course upon the young
man who had slept with him, that he had
committed the murder and thrown the
body over the pier into tli3 sea. A war
rant was isFued for LU arrest and he was
taken, that evening, at his iivi bet's Lous':
On his being examined and searched,
marks of blood were discovered on his
shirt and trouscr?, and in his pocket was
a knife and remarkable silver coin, both
of which the landlady swore positively
were her uncle's property, and that she
saw them in his possession on the evening
he retired to rest with the young man. On
these circumstances the youth was found
waiting ; a few minutes brought them on
board the frigate then under weigh for
the East Indies ; and he omitted ever wri
ting home to account for Ida disappear
ance. 11,03 were the chief circumstances
explained by the two friends strangely me'.
The silver coin being in the possession of
the young man could only be explained
by the co'njecture that when he took the
knife from the pocket of the boatswain, it
stuck between the blades and in this man
ner became the strongest proof aainat
On their rcf urn to England, this won
derful explanation was told tli ;,i
jury who tried the case, and it is nrobable
u,ey never alter convicted a man on cir
cumstantial evidence. It also mad
great noise in Kent at the time.

fection for the impetuous little curly pate
that made her so many steps and nearly
distracted her with his boisterous mirth.
Now the is the "old woman," but she
did not think then that it would come to
that. She looked on through the future
years and saw her boy to manhood grown;
and he stcol transfigured in the light of
her own beautiful love. Never was there
a more noble son than he honored of the
world, and the staff of her declining years.
Aye, he was her support even then, but

lie related all the above particulars in
his defence; but as he could not account
for the blood on his person, uuless he got
them when he retired to bud, nor for the
silver coin being in his possession, his I
atory was not credited. 'I lie certainty of j
the boatswain's disappearance, and the i
uioou ai me pier, traced lrom his bedroom,
were supposed to be too evident signs that
he was murdered ; and even the judge
was so convinced of his guilt that he or
dered his execution to take place in lhre3
days. At the fatal tree the youth de
clared his innocence, and persisted in it
with such affecting aseverations that many
pitied him, though none doubted the jus
tice of his sentence.
The executioners of those days were
not so expert at their trade as 'modern
ones, nor were drops or platforms invent
ed. The young man was very tall. Ilia
feet sometimes touched the ground ; and
some of his friends who surrounded the
gallows, contrived to give the body some
support as it was suspended. After being
cut down those friends bore it speedily
away in a coffin, and in a few minutes
animation was restored and the innocent
saved. When he was able to move his
friends insisted on his leaving the country
and never returning. He accordingly
traveled by night to Portsmouth, where
he entered on board a man of war on the
point of sailing to a distant pa:t of the
world ; and as he changed his name, and
disguised his person, his melancholy story
was never discovered. After a few years
of service, during which Lis exemplary
conduct was the cause of his promotion
through the lower grade?, he was at Inst
made a master's mate ; and the ship being
paid off in the West Indies, he and a few
more of the crew were transferred to an
other man-of-war which had just arrived,
short of hands, from a distant station.
What were his feelings of astonishment,
and then delight and ccstacy, when almost
the first person he saw on board was the
identical boatswain, for whose murder he
had been tried, convicted and executed
five years before ! Nor was the surprise
of the olel boatswain less when he heard
An explanation of all the mysterious
circumstances then took place. It appear
ed that the boatswain had been bled for
a pain in the side, by a barber, unknown
to his neice, on the same day of the young
man's arrival at D.; that when the young
man awakened him, and retired to tho
yard, he found the bandage had come off
his arm during the night, and the blood
was flowing afresh. lJeing alarmed, he
rose to go to the baibor, who lived across
the street, but a press gang laid hold of
him just as he" left the house. They hur
ried him to the pier where their boat was
Painful, A correspondent furnishes
the following: "Our district school was
kept at one time by a young man named
Paine. Among the girls attending school
was Patience M , a lively, good-natured
Miss of eighteen. It soon became
evident that fhe was the favorite of the
teacher, as nearly all his leisure time was
spent in her companj-, and their smiles
and love glances dm ing school hours could
not be passed unnoticed. One day W
- , one of the boys, and a general favor
ite of the whole school, burst out in a fit
of laughter, and being asked by the teach
er for Lis reasons for so doing, he declined
to answer. The teacher, however, in
sisted, and threatened to punish him, not
only for laughing, but for refusing to an
swer. W said he would answer the
question, if the teacher would promise not
to punish him. After some hesitation the
tjacher gave the required promise.
"I wa3 thinking," said W , "of the
following line of Dr. Watts:
" 'See gentle Patience smile cn rain.' "
The effect upon the school can be better
imagined than described. Patience 31
did not attend school after that day,
and soon after its close was married to
the teacher, and, for aught I know, con
tinues to smile on Paine.
Tin: I5n:i of the Toli-ino Hell.
Among the .highest woods and deepest
glens of Brazil a sound is sometimes heard,
so singular that the noise seems quite un
natural ; it is like the distant and solemn
tolling of a church bell, struck at intervals.
This extraordinary noise proceeds frot
the arawanda. The bird sits on the top
of the highest trees in the tleepcst forests,
and though constantly heard in the most
desert places, it is very rarely seen. It is
impossible to conceive nnything of more
solitary character than the profound s;1?rc.
of the wojds, broken only by the meta'ic
and almost supernatural sound of this in

seeming to follow wherever you go. The

A Natukal Curiosity. In a cave in
the Virtud, in the Southern part of the
department of Choluteca, Honduras, there
is a natural curiosity, called the "Fountain
of IJlood." This fountain consists of a
stream of fluid resembling blood, which
drops steadily from the roof of the cave
upon the floor beneath. It forms pools
of coagulated matter upon the floor, and
imparls its color to a email brook which
llows lrom the cave.
satisfactory analysis has been made cf it
and vaiious theories have been advanced ! of danciu
ah the eloquence and ine;:j it y" of hi-t
counsel were required to make any im
pression in Lis favor upon a jury, which,
however impartial it might desire to be in
the consciousness of sworn duty, couH'not
but see the waves of popular prejudice sur
ging i.i upon it.
T! c case was ab'y argued. The coun
sel for the defence made most vigorous and
irnparsionate appe Is. The casj was sub
mitted to the jury ; and they retiie l to
make nj th-ir verdict. Time passed, and
as the setting sun warned all of the ap
proaching night, the large throng in at
tendance, the judge, counsel, etc., retired,
all anxious, the accused not the least so,
to learn the verdict of the jury, and some
wondering that the jury he.-itated for one
moment to bring in a verdict of guilty.
In the meantime the jury had come to a
point beyond which they could progress
no further. The appeals of the counsel
for the defence Lad not been without their
influence, and the jury stenxl unchangea
ble, six lor conviction and six for acquit
tal. Something had to be done. In those
days twelve good fellows could not be
got together for a night, and sleep. Cards
appeared mysteriously f.om the depths of
sundry large pockets, and exercises in
seven-up and poker were zealously com
menced. About midnight one of their number,
Ceil. P., proposed that they should play a
game of seven-up, the result to decide the
verdict. The proposition was heartily
and unanimously agreed to, in all serious

to play the game on which was staked a

The game proceeded with very equal
fortune, till both parties stood at six and

TriiNF.n Jack! The prisoner was ac
quitted, and every man of the jury raised
a shout which startled the whore village,
even the revelers in the "grocery." Next
morning the jury went into court, and
gave to the astonishment of many, the
verdict of "not guilty." The juryman
who played an unsuccessful game for hu
man life, still lives, a much respected citi

Memphis bar, and the accused ha?, we
believe, gone to a higher court ; but rc'.thor
