CONTINUE to make Insurances un Lives on the most
favorable terms; receive and execute Trusts, and
receive Deposits on Interest.
The Capital being paid up and Invested, together with
accumulated premium fund, affords a perfect security to
the insured. The premium may be paid in yearly, half
yearly, or quarterly pat ments.
The Company add a BONUS at slated periods to the
insurances for life. This plan of insurance is the most
approved of, and is more generally in use than any other
in Great Britain, (where the subject is best understood by
the people, and where they have had the longest experi
ence,) as appears from the fact that out of 117 Life Insu
rance Companies there, of all kinds, S7 are on this plan.
The first BONUS was appropriated in December, 1841,
amounting to 10 per cent, on the sum insured under the
oldest policies; to 8f per rent., 71 per cent. &c., on
others, in proportion to the time of standing, making an
addition of $100; $87.60; #75, &i\, Sec., to every #IOOO,
originally insured, which is an average of more than 60
per cent, on the premiums paid, and without increasing
the annual payment to the company.
The operation of the Bonus will be seen by the follow

Company, thus :

There is a habit which boys teach each other at the

few of those who indulge in this pernicious practice are

When fortune beams around you,
When hearts with pleasure leap ;
And hopes and joys surround you—
Forget not those who weep!
When friendship's smile invites you—
To bless and to be blest;
When every charm delights you—
Oh, think of the distrest!
When golden gales betide you,
As if by Heaven decreed,
And plenty stands beside you—
Forget not those who need?
When pleasure's cup seems endless,
Oh prove it without end ;
By being to the friendless
In every hour a friend !
A Desperate Negro.
Some years since a gentleman residing in An
derson county in this State, sold a negro man to
a citizen of Middle Tennessee. The negro was
removed to the home of his new master, but in
a short time ran away and returned to Anderson
county, and secreted himself for a year or more,
in the neighborhood of his wife, but was finally dis
covered and apprehended, and again taken to
Middle Tennessee. He remained the second
time until a favorable opportunity was present
ed and again absconded. This was six or sev
en years since. A large reward was offered for
his apprehension. Diligent search was for a
long time made, but no traces of him being dis
covered, his running away had passed entirely
out of the minds of all but his owners. A few
days since, however, two men, residing in An
derson county, by the name of Diggs and Low,
were out with their rifles hunting game. Being
fatigued and thirsty, for the purpose of refresh
ing themselves, they concluded to go to a fina
spring not far off. This they did, and up to the
cabin, where there were several white women
living. Diggs took his seat upon a bed, whilo
his companion, Low, remained in the yard.—
One of the women was in the cabin, and so soon
as Diggs entered, she commenced a sprightly
conversation with him, during which she ap-
f >roached the bedside and let fall on the floor a
arge butcher knife, at which, as soon as it struck
the floor, the hand of a negro caught from under
the bed. Diggs' suspicion being thus awakened
he with great presence of mind, kicked the
knife beyond the reach of the hand, and instant
ly a huge negro sprang out, drew up an axe
with both hands, and was swinging it over so as
to cleave the skull of Diggs, when fortunately
the force of the blow was so far checked by the
axe striking 'the loft,' that all the injury Diggs
sustained was a slight gash in his forehead, of
four or five inches in length. Diggs cocked
his gun, presented it at the negro's breast and
fired , but the negro observed the precise posi
tion of the muzzle, and placed the broad side of
the axe before it, so that the bullet must neces
sarily strike it, as it did. Diggs sprang upon
the negro and grappled, but did not succeed in
throwing him until the negro had struck him
another severe blow above the eye with the axe.
The report of his gun brought Low into the
cabin just as Diggs threw the negro upon the
bed. Low ran up immediately and with his
butcher knife stabbed the negro three times in
the side, sticking the knife each time as deep as
he could. Finding that this did not vanquish
the negro, who still struggled with Diggs, he
placed his gun at the negro's side and discharged
the entire load into his body. This overcame
the negro, and he yielded, bleeding from every
wound very profusely. Diggs and Low suppos
ing that he must necessarily die, went out in
search of neighbors, who, when they came in,
discovered the negro still alive, and knew him
to be the same negro so long 'in the woods.'
The negro was removed to the Clinton jail,
where he is now confined to await a trial for the
assault upon Diggs life, the punishment for
which, if he be convicted, is death ; though we
learn there is no probability that he will recov
er.—KnoxtiUc ( Tain.) Register.
There's many a 'hook and crook' in the af
fairs of life ; but the latest hooking process we
have witnessed was a ehap on Monroe street the
other day fishing for some rats ! Seated upon
the pavement, he would drop his line and hook,
baited with meat, into a cellar below, and in a
few minutes up he would haul Mr. Rat, dan
gling and squealing in the air. He does a fine
business, catching ten rats in a few hours.—

A DESPERATE LOVER.—A few days ago as a
young lady was returning from a camp meeting,
near Lancaster, accompanied by a gentleman,
she was attacked by a rejected lover, who knock
ed the gentleman down, hit his lady a blow in
the breast, and then attempted to throttle her !
The furious lover was subsequently arrested.
He would have made a pretty husband, had his
suit been accepted !
THE MOUEL WIFE.— A lady in Albany the
other day, washed the whole week's washing,
hung the clothes out to dry, cooked three meals,
made a pair of pants for her youngest boy, darn
ed ber husbands stockings, had the cholera and
cured herself, then dyed four dresses, all be
tween the hours of 6 A. M. and 8 P. M.—
Where is their another such a woman? Bring
her along.
Anguish of mind has driven thousands to sui
cide—anguish of body few. This proves that
the health of the mind is of far more importance
than the health of the body, although both are
deserving of much more attention than either
of them receive.
"The little darling—he didn't strike Miss
Smith's baby a purpuss, did he? It was a mere
accident, wasn't it, dear?" "Yes mar, to be
sure it was, and if he don't behave himself I'll
crack him agin."
MAKING MISCHIEF.— A long ladder leaning
against a house, a negro at the top and a hog
rubbing himself against the foot of it—"g'way,

Laziness grows on people ; it begins in cob
webs, and ends in iron chains. The more bus
iness a man has, the more he is able to accon
plish, for he learns to economise his time.
The less notice we take of the unfrindness ard
injuries that are done us, the more we consult
the quiet of our minds.
