with th

over tho obdurate and ungrateful inhabi

What can be moro exquisite than the
simile used by Goldsmith, to portray tho
excellencies of "'Tho Village Treacher,"
'And as a bird e:cli fund endearment tries

That fplondid dreamer, John Itunyan,
makes the singing of birds one of the do
liLdits of that 1; nd which lies "beyond the
Valley of tho Shadow of Death." And
the magnificent old Isaac Walton, in
speaking of "the musicians of tho air, that
warble forth their curious ditties," and es
pecially tho nightingale, that breathes
such sweet loud music out of hir little
throat, exclaims with emotion, "Lord,
what music hast thou provided for tho
saints in heaven, when thou aflbrdest bad
mgn suc'.i music on earth ?"
Daniel Webster so loved to hear tho
songs of birds, that ho never permitted
one to bo killed o:i any of his property;
and it may be remembered when the
great statesman had just been woundod
in tho house of his friends, how beautiful
ly, "in spita of sorrow," he alluded to tho
lark when, no doubt, he felt at heart,
"As tlio struck eale stretched upon the plain.
No more through rolling clouds to soar aguin,
Viewed his own feather on the fatal dart,
And wing'd tlio shaft lHatquivor'd in his heart;
Keen were his pangs, but keener far to fool
He nur.itd the pinion which impelled the steel;
While thesniue plumage that bad wanu'd hisnott

When tho final scene of his great and

by his dying bed, heard him repeating !

From tho fact that all who have paid
special attention to the study of ornithol
ogy have become exceedingly devoted to
it, we may conclude there is much in the
science calculated both to delight and in
struct. Wilson made many perilous jour.,
neys through the wilds of America, to ob
tain an intimate and accurate knowledzo
of tho birds of its mountains and forests.
Without assistance and without money ne
pcrsovered in his course until his merits
were ap2recialed by the mcst distinguish
ed men and societies of the country.
When his friends remonstrated with him
for his arduous and unremitting labors, his
reply was, "Lile is short, and nothing cf.n
be done without exertion," IHs love for
the feathered race was his ruling passion
in lite, and it was strong in death. A
short time before that event, he repeated-
ly expressed the wisu to a triend that ho
might bo buried where tho birds might
sing over ins grave.
N ol less remarkable wire the life and
labors of Audubon Ity patient toil and
lortituuo, lie achieved lor himself a repu
tation as magnificent in its character as it
was world-wide in Us extent. Perhaps
there never was a person whose inmost
soul responded more deeply to the maies
tic sentiments expressed by Lord 1'y ion,
tnan Audubon s,
"Thero is a ploasuro in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is focioty whoro none- intrudes,
I'.y the deep sea, and music in its roar."
In his own case this was all true. For
years he had been accustomed to roam
tho pathless woods had been bo highly
delighted to see the objects of his atlec
tionate interest flit and nestle among the
green boughs of the f'orest.or soar through
tliii "upper deep towards the blue cano
py above him, and hear their sweet mu
sic echoed back from its sounding-board,
or watch their flights, or trace their foot
steps by tho obCoeean's side, that such
scenes and melody seemed necessary for
his very existence; for when, on account
of his advauced age, his friends induced
him to give up the idea of his last projec
ted erpedition, l:ke the caged eagle, he
began to droop, and not long after died.
la conclusion, it may be remarked that
the derree and kind of interest manifest
ed for beasds, and birds and (lower, aflord
no insignificant or uncertain indications
as to character; and therefore it may
bo well to adopt on this, and certain
ly on a far more important occasion, the
language and sentiments of the "Ancient
' Farewell, farewell ! but this I tell
To thee, thou WtcUing-guert:
He p-ayeth well who lovoth will
Loth man, and bird and bead."
Parental I sdi'loence. No children are
ever so happy as those who havo been
early taught implicit and immediate obe
dience to their parents' wishes, or will, or
commands. Would that parents more
universally felt this ! When they sutler
tlieir children to disobey them they are
absolutely teaching them to sin against
God, breaking one of his commandments,
and one to which the proniiso of long life
is given. No wonder if God in just dis
pleasure, remove the child from such tui
tion. Heruember w hat a solemn and in
structive lesson the Holy Ghost has given
in the history of Eli. There is much dan
cer. lrom an amiahio wish to cratity a
child.or counterorderinj' your own orders.
If you once direct a chiU to do a thing,
however unpleasant it may be to yourself
or the child, insist with hrmness upon
immediate and full obedience. There
should be no demur nor delay. Prompt
obedience is as lovely in child, as its en
forcements aro dignified in a parent. The
firm and gentle constraint of parental au
thority commands respect, and oven in-
i.n;rrr(,vrinw nr,,i iv in tho el.ild tr.
wards tho parent. Thus, then, if you de.
sire vour childien should crow upcherish-
imr for vou profound esteem and aflection.
insist upon the filial dutv thedutvof inl
plicit obedience -and commenco early.

Memorial of James W. Wall, Esq , to

To tht & mte an l llouu of Assembly rf the

Your memorialist represents to your

That the said Marshal, being called upon

that be would bold the Secretary respon-!
sible, and all who presumed to act under
his authority ; that this official had over-! i
stepped the hmitsof his ofhcial authority,
and having usurped powers not delegated
to him by the Constitution, or by some
law made in pursuance thereof, he had
put himself beyend the pale of the i pro'-
tectionof his office, and was liable like
any private citizen, with this distinction,
that having used his official position to
effect this gross injustice and oppression,
it was i i groat aggravation of his guilt, and
would beconsideied 60 in a criminal pros -
ecution, or in asking for exemplary dam-
ages in a civil action.
lo this protest and warning of your
memorialist, the Marshal made the follow-
ingmost extraordinary reply: "That he
knew nothing of the cause and nature of
the accusations, or of any affidavit or allir.
niation upon which the warrant was based;
that he had received the order through
the post office, nnd was bound to execute
it at all hazards, and if any resistance was
made, he would resort to the armed force
then surrounding the house." ,
Upon your memorialist requesting time
for preparation, and to have an interview
with his family, it was peremptorily refus-
ed by the Marshal, who further declared
"that he had rtrdrts to tulc hour memoriaHxt at

In this Government fortress ho was con
fined for nearly two week", his correspon
donee subjected to the most impudent
upvailonnn ani hi rterSOIl to flll those in
dignities and petty annoyances which a
- v ' , ,
militnrv despotism understand so well how
to inflict. He was finally released lrom
confinement upon taking what was called
an oath of allegiance, an extrajudicial
oath, but unobjectionable to V"ur memo-
rialist-, inasmuch as it pledged mm io pro
tect and defend the Conttimtinn ayninrt all its
enemies," thus imposing, if it were possiblo
to do po, additional obligations upon him
to resist the unconstitutional acts of this
high official, and punish his gross viola
tionsof the personal liberty of the subject.
There can bo no greater enemy to the
Constitution than that man, who, beneath
the cloak of powr, conceals the stiletto
with which he thrusts at its vitals.
Since his release your memorialist lias
applied again and again to the Secretary
of War, for the cause and nature of the
accusations against him ; but thus frr all
his applications havo received not tho
slightest notice. This persistent silence
of tho Secretary of War raises the pre
sumption that the unconstitutional war
rant by which he dared to deprive a citb
zen of New Jersey of h'.s liberties, baa not
ven the bald pretence of a written accu
sation to give it the flimsiest shadow of a
decent formality.
Your memorialist, by reason of this
cruel, unmanly silence of the War Depart
ment, has been compelled to submit to
have his aoodnamc and fame, called in question,
hit lovaltvto the Constitution dcuhted, and the
most unijrounded and vnjvst prejudices engender
ed aaainst him. It is the grossest injustice
fn rilace an individual in such a position
violate all th rights, privileges and im
munities that belong to nim as a citizen
punish him as if be were tho vilost crim
inal, and then cruelly withhold from him
the nature and cause of the accusation
against him.
Your memorialist therefore makes this
appeal to the legislature of bis native
State, tbat it will, through our Senators
and Representatives in Con gres, demand
of the War Department the nature and
charges on fllo in said Department, upon
which such warrant was issued, or, if no
Puch charges ere upon record, that then

hour of the nation's peril, came fourth

the reign of lilizabeth thero was a notion
that a kind of paramount sovereignty ex

to the abstract nature of sovereignty, and
arising out of its primary ollice of preserv-
