Coleridge said there was something in Undine even .
beyond Scott : that Scott's best characters and concep
tions were "composed." " Bailie Nicol Jarvie, for in
stance, was made of old particulars, and received its in
dividuality from the author's puler of fusion; being in
the result an adrnirabfe product—as Corinthian braes
was said to be the conflux of a city." But Undine--he
said—was one and single in projection, and presented to
his imagination, what Scott's had never dune, an ab. so
.lutely new idea,,
A 'LITLAARY GlLlL—Several of OurcoteMpOrlrill of
the wits, hare tulopted u a motto those admirable ex
pressions—.. He who will not reason is • bigot ;"
We were for • long time quite et twit in regard to the
paternity of these words, which faker' with their context,
form according to our apprehension, one of the finest
passages in the English language.
They occur in the concluding sentence of Sir William
Drummond's preface to his " Academical Questions."—
He'says: "Prejudice may he trusted to guard the out
works for a short space of time, while Reason slumbers
in the citadel: but if the latter sink into a lethargy, the
former will quickly erect a Mandell for lutraelf.
sophy, Wisdom and Religion support each other: be
who - will not reason is a bigot;-he who cannot is a fool ;
—and he who dares not is a Wave."
In one of the Countess Breuington's " conversations
with Lord Byron"—the latter spoke of Bir William as
"certainly one of the most 'erudite men end admirable
philosophers now living." It is strange his works are
not extensively known. His Odin "which is really a
fine poem—has some passages that are beautiful; and
yet it is so little read, that it may be said to have drop
ped still-horn from the press. His translation of "Per
seus," is not only very literal, bat preserves much of the
spirit of the original.

the report of the "Farmer's Club" in the city of New
York, given by the New York Express—reference is
made teems:ls experiments in this country, in regard to
Electricity as a useful agent in cultivation. At a late
meeting of the Club, some potatoes were exhibited by a
Mr. Rosawhich were cultivated in this form. These pota
toes were much larger than any raised the natural way.
The probable amount of the crop could not now be sta

the teller was not all affected. The Causal of this be

There can be--at bast, theie ought to 1;--but one
niia l son atni one feeling as to the departure from demo.
erode principles and democratMusages, in the election to
the gaited State* Senate of Gen. Simon Cameron, over
George W.. Woodward, in Match last. We pause not
to discuss partici:lsra now : we enter upon none of the
personal reasons and " private griefs", which have been
referred to in various quarters, as instil) ing individual
actors in the drama. It is enough in our view, that
George W. Woodwani"was duly anminated as the de
mocratic candidate. Icor is it any palliation to say
that the caucus was not attended by all of the de
-mar...rade members;—on the contrary, the dereliction be
comes the more glaring. A nomination by caucus was
as necessary and expedient on that occasion, as ever it
was, in any exigency of the patty. Then 'and there
should er. Ty Democratic =inter have Rut ndvd, even if
it bad been to advocate the selc'Ttion of-Gen. Cameron.
Had be been the. nominee—honestly preeenteir—he
should gave been sustained. The rule would have been
as unbending in his favor, as We now conceive it to be
against him and against the'course of his friends.
George W. Woodward then, was defeated by a viola
tion of usage—amounting to a departure front principle.
His qualifications for the past of Senator were of the
most desitable description. His power and eloquence in
debate, and his undoubted devotion to Democratic prin
ciples, rendered him peculiarly fitted to be the successor
of Pennsylvenia's favorite son James Buchanan, in that
responsible and elevated station: We look upon theob
jectien which has been furbished up against him, on the
score of hostility to the present principles of naturaliza
tion—as an after-thought, and unworthy of regard.
The doctrines of the Address, as we have intimated,
we concur in; and we look upon the desire of the niem
berm who united in it, to appeal to their constituents. as
both natural and proper, under the circumstances. We
feel too, the most profound respect for the gentleman who
is said to have written it. His code of political morality
is of the purest and most elevated character—censuring
not only every shade of political corruption, but even the
slightest laxity in doctrine or usage. Being a participa
tor in the scenes of the late election, it could scarcely be
otherwiiie, than that his sensibilities should be keenlyex.
cited at the result. It is not alone on this octasion, that
Benjamin Champneys has exhibited himself in a light,
which, if no unfortunate shadows intervene, will some
day place him more prominently before the people of
Nothwithstanding all this = : we repeat our regret Lithe
publication of the Address at this late period. If:should
have appeared—if at all—on the instant; and the recu
sant members been promptly consigned to the judgment
of their respective constituents, where the subject should
have been left. To what end shall we convulse the party
anew, Bulge late hour, in regard to s question, not
naturally or necessarily so extended in its immediate
bearings? We feel assured that George W. Woodward
himself, must deprecate this continued agitation and in
creasing bitterness. It can do him no good ;—on the con
trary, it may tend to build up a permanent hostility
against him, in the minds of many who would gladly re ,
trace their steps, and bury in oblivion &proceeding which
too late they have discovered was fraught with the most
As for General Cameron—let him also be left to the
judgment of the future, after a suitable exhibition of his
political turpitude, as connected with this election. Time
was, when he battled ably and firmly in the democratic .
Tanks. He has . qualities, which challenge respect, even
in spite of our feelings of reprobation, at his"course in the
ease before us;.—and which give him na inconsiderable
prominence in the public mind. To very respectable
powers of intellect, and indomitable perseverance and en
ergy—he unites• en agreeable personat,addrau, and a
warm and benevolent heart. If, by • steady adherence
to Democratic principles for the fatnre, is the station to
which he has reached—he should invoke forbearance and
forgetfulness as to the past—we demand what pomade
advantage can result to the party in a continued warfare!
There is another feature in this publication, which
claims a passing remark. It seems that letters were ad.
dressed to Vice President Dallas and Secretary Buchan
an, in order to obtain an expression of their views in re
latian to " the unnatural and unexpected result" of the
Senatorial election: Now to us—(and we cannot per
suade ourselves. that we are so entirely untaught in politi
cal etiquette)—the propriety, of seeking in this mode to
drew out and publish the opinions of two of the highest
'dignitaries of the General Government, upon a subject
so obvionsly personal and local in all its bearings—is not
perfectly apparent. Replies however, were obtained, and
are published with the address. That of Mr. Buchanan,
betrays the amiable prompting; of his own excellent heart.
While it censures the violation of party usage in the
most positive terms, it breathes also • spirit of forbear
ance and conciliation al once natural to him, and not
unsuited to his present elevated position. But it seems
to have fallen all too coldly on the ear of some of those
whose feelings had almost become morbid on this sub
ject, during the exciting scenes of the Senatorial cul
-1 *an. They probably, without any allowance for the
"propriety of place," which the Secretary was bound to
I vegard—looked for something more ardent in lane—More
I,denuatietory in spirit.
That Kr. Buchanan should have failed to please a CE7-
