Our Father Land who names the name
Of Father Land Without a tear ?
The voice of love,:the voice of fame, •
The voice of all Istti hold tnost dear—
Tell us to Rico our Father Land !
The aspiring hills - that look on Heaven,
The streams that ivander to the sea,
The song of birds it morn and oven.
The forest's ehoralininstrelsy,
Tell unto love our Father Land 1
Tie-legends that we loved to hear
Of haunted grove and wizard: glen,
Taking us backjoidap most dear,
Ah, never to math] again,
Tell us to lore our Faiber Land !
Where is the heart that will not boat
More proudly on the ocean wave ;
Nor feel his life-blood back retreat -
Into that mystic crimson cave,
When he thinks,of his Father Land?
Our Father Land who names the name
Of Father Lend without a tear?
The voice of hive, ihe voice of fame; -
Tho voice of all we hold most dear;
Tell unto love our Father Land !
.lenny, I'd press you to my heart,
Bat till such preseime you decry—
There's too much cotton, whalebone, lace,
'Tween you and I !
I'd only muss the dry goods up,
And make you blubber, pont and frown ;
I3esides, I might (Obi-sad mischance !)
Break whalebones down !
Barescell ". I'll pray when next we meet,
And meet we may, if fashions change,
At least, that we may come within
Good talking range !
• '3lv Pretty Cousin;
OR,. THE ' COQUETTE CAUGHT IN HER
My pretty cousin is not like other
cousins. -She is the queen of cousins,
being at once the most ,agreeable, cruel
and unmanageable-of all ; the prettiest
and most dangerous; liveliest and most'
witty ; and is, besides, such a conceited
little prude as never lived before, whose
fanciful mischief loving dispositiorrhas
intimiddted and subdded the country
beaux for.miles around.: She is-more ,
over, a ca - pricious tyrant, wilful and ob
stinate, and sways the sceptre of her
power with an, unsparing hand. Her
admirers, slaves =I ;would say—though,
their ribs have ached and smarted with
the thumps of. more than one of cupid's
shafts, though - theirAtearte bristling with
his barbed arrows, pierced 'and riddled
in every direction, still flutter round the
light that scorches them attracted, en
chanted by eyes that- melt with gazing
and fire you with their fire.
See, how fond the saucy elf is of teaz
ing, with such mellow lips, that hung
like-golden fruit, to be plucked by ,the
first bold hand ; pointing to you tempt.
ingly ; wooing, inviting; and when you
would haste tcrpress them to your own,
they arrest you with such an offended
delicacy, that you dare go no further, ,
lest the Puritan box your ears.
Alt cousins are not-so, While -they
hang their heads in delicious:confusion,
and suffer one to do what he will with
their lips, she will be tugging at your
whiskers, or what-is more to be dread
ed, will, with one fell swoop, smash the
spotless, unwrinkled bosom, that - is so
snugly arrayed behind the vest that
gives it protection, -None -of that de
voted train yet had sufficient audacity
to steal a kiss. Poor souls! Was it that
they feared they might disarrange the
hair that they had spent so much time
in brushing and torturing into sleekness?
Or were they content to plod along in
the same every day employment of sigh

We will not say What image was ever

because the reader already knows,—
Neither do we love to speculate upon
the state of Harry's heart. We don't
know much about this city cousin yet,
farther than it appears that he is very
fond of talking about her, and that is
not proof positive that he is in love
with her. People do not talk most of
those they love. My pretty cousin's

he was pleased with her lively humor
and wit; he felt the influence of her
eyes; but he was determined to curb
that proud spirit that marred all her
better qualities, and exterminate her
petty passion forcoquetry.
She had failed once in her long, ca..

a signal defeat. Was it her fault?—
Was she growing old ? The thought
paled her cheek. She flew to the glass:

So, too in Connecticut. We refer
more particularly to the legislation of
this State, because it was not only a
mong the first to put an end to slavery
within its one territnry,but was the firal
1 0 fix a mark of reprobation upon the
African slave fade. The law last men
tinned was passed in October, 1788, a
bout nine months after the State had
ratified and adopted the present caliti.
;nion of•the United States; and by that
law it prohibited its own citizens,under
severe penalties, from engaging in the
trade, and declared all policies of insu
ranee on the vessel or cargo made in
the State to be null and void. But, up
to the time of the adoption of the con
stitution, there is nothing in the legis.
lation of the State indicatingany change
of opinion as to the relative rights and
position• of the white and the black
races in this country, or indicating that
it meant to place the latter, when free,
upon a level with its citizens; and cer•
tainty nothing which would have led the
slavekolding States to suppose that Con
necticut designed to claim for them,un
der the new constitution, the equal
rights and privileges and rank of citi
zens in every other State.
The first step taken by Connecticut
upon this subject was as early as 1774,
when it passed an act forbidding the
future importation of slaves into the
State. But the section containing the
probibition.is introduced by the fol•
"And whereas the increase of slaves
in this,State is injurious to the poor,
and iucon vonient."
This recital would appear to have
been carefully introduced, in order to
prevent any misunderstanding of the
motive which induced the legislature to
pass the law, and places it dietinetly
upon the interest and convenience of
the white population—excluding the
inference that it might have been in
tended in any degree for the benefit of
And in the act of 1784, by which the
issue of slaves, born after the time there
in mentioned, were to be free at a cer
tain age, the section is again introduc
ed by a preamble assigning a similar
motive for the ant, It is in these words;
"Whereas, sound policy requires that
the abolition of slavery should he ef•
fected as soon as may be consistent with
the rights of individuals and the public
safety and welfare"—showing that the
right of property in the master was to
be protected, and the measure was one
of policy, and to prevent the injury and
inconvenience, to, the whites, of a slave
population in the State.
And still further pursuing its legisla
tion, we find that in the same statute,
passed in 1774, which prohibited the
further importation of slaves into the
State, there is also a provision by which
any negro, Indian, mulatto servant, who
WAS found wandering out of the town or
place to which he belonged, without a
written pass such as is therein deacrib.
ed, was made liable to be seized by any
one, and taken before the next authori
ty to be examined and delivered up to
his master, who was required to pay the
chatge which had accrued thereby.—
And a subsequent section of the same
law provides diet if any free negro Isbell
travel without such pass, and shall be
stopped, seized, or taken up, he shall
pay all charges arising thereby; and
this law was in full operation when the
constitution of the United States was
adopted, and was not repealed till 1797.
So that up to that time free negroes and
mulatoes were associated with servant*
and slaves in the police regulations es.
tablished by the laws of the State.
Arid again in 1533 Connecticut pass
ed another law which made it penal to
set lip or establish any school in that
State for the instroetion of persona of
the African race riot inhabitants of the
State, or to instruct or teach in any such
school or institution, or beard or harbor
for that purpose, any such person, with•
out the previous consent in writing of
the civil authority of the town in which.
such school or institution might be.
And it appears by the case of Cran.
dal! vs. The State, reported in 10 Conn.
Rep., 340, that upon any information
filed against Prudence Crandall for a
violation of this law, one of the points
raised in the defence was, that the law
was a violation of the constitution of
the United States; arid that thepereons
inatruct2d, although of the African race,
were citizens of other States, therefore
entitled to the rights and privileges of
citizens in the State of Connecticut.--
But Chief Justice Dagget, before whom
the case was tried, held that persona of
that description were not citizens of a
State, within the meaning of the word
citizen in the constitution of the United;
States, and -were not, therefore ,. entitled
to the privileges and immunities of cit.
I i zenain other States.
