When Fortune beams around you,
When hearts with pleasure leap;
And hopes and joys surrohnd you--
Forget not those who weep !
When friendship's smile invites you
To bless and to be blest;
And every charm delights you—
Oh, think of-the distreft!
When golden gales betide you
As if by Heaven decreed ;
And plenty stands beside you—
Forget not tbose who need!
When pleasures, cup seems endless,
Oh, prove it without end ;

!From Abe RiChmond Rein&liesn
The Dead Sea Faleditiea.
The September number of the Southern Literary
Messenger contains an article of profound interest
on the subject from the pen of Lieut. M. F. Maury.
Lieut,Matiry gives a hinniry of this expedition,
brief but lucid, and which:increases the public
mind to see the report of tient Maury, who has
made a successful surrey, and who, we are glad
to Imm; is expected to return soon to this country.
We learn from Lieut Maury's article that this
expedition was planned by Lieut. Lynch. and zu
thotized by Secretary Mason. In the spring of
1 2 .17 Lieut Lynch first addressed the Secretary on
the suliect.• recommending a circumnavigation and
exploration of the Dead Sea and its entire coast;
stattna that the expertse would be triAine, as our
hips frequently touched at Acre. in Syria, forty
notes from Lake Tiberius or Seaof Galilee, from
which the rivet Jordon runs and debouches into the
tirst named sea that the frame of a boat, with crew
and provisions, could' be transported on :camels
torn Acre to Tiberius, and there put together again.
truly one traveller; Mr. COrti,gan, had ever eircum
, navigated the 'Dead Sea, and he had died lithe
termination of Ins voyage, - without leaving any
reirnal or notes behind. It was contended also,
• that independent of caner curiosity pi all Christen
dom in ree, to this mysterieus lake this expedi
tion is of%value to the interests of navigation.
"The Secretary of the Navy received favorably
the proposition of Lient Lynch, and an opportunity
. soon occurred by which it could 'be conveniently
carried into effect. It was necessary to send a store
ship to the Mediterranean squadron, and as, afire
her arrival, she would have no employment for
.• Months, the Secretary determined to send Limn
Lynch and his party hater ; so that, after meeting
the wants of squadron, she could proceed up the
Levant. and land Lieut. Lynch and his companions.
The. was done. The storesliip "Supply - wt pro
sided With two metallic boats, one of copper, the
other iron . the former named " Fanny Mason,"
and the latter Fanny Skinner." On their arrival
at their destination their troubles b eg an, and io their
march to lake Tiberius, their boats had to be
transported over the most formidable mountain gor
es and heights, and to be lowered down precipi
ces with ropes- But these drffieuhies were sur
mounted with true sailor skill and perseverance,
nod on the Bth of April the tworannies, each with
the American ensign flying. were afloat u, on the
beautiful blue waters of the sea of Galilee. "Em
blematic of its Master, it alone of all things around
them remained the same. Jtert as the Apostles
saw it when our Saviour said to it, " Peace be
stilt." this little band of rovers now beheld it.'
The navigation of the Jordon was forind to be
moo difficult and dangerous, from its frequent and
tearful rapids. Lieut. Lynch solves the secret of
the depression between Lake Tiberias and the Dead
Sea by the tortuous coarse of the Jordon, which, in
a. distance of silty miles winds through a course of
we hundred miles, Within this distance Lieuten
ant L y nch and his pity plunged down no less than threatening rapids, besides many
others of less descent. The difference of level be- .

Atter the survey of the sea, the party proceeded
to determine the height of mountains on its shores.
and to run a level thence via Jertendem to the
Mediterranean. They found the summit of the
west bank of the Dead Sea more than 1000 feet
above its surface, and very nearly on a level with
the Mediterranean,
It is a curious fact," saps Lieu t. Maury, that
the distance from the top to the bottom of the Dead
Sea should measure the heighth of its banks, the
elevaticin of the Mediterranean, and the difference
of level between the bottom of the two seas, and
that the depth of the Dead Sea should be also in
exact multiple of the height of Jerusalem above
it." •
Another not less singular filet, in the opinion of
Lieut Lynch, " is that the bottom of the Dead Sea
forms tr-o submerged plains, an elevated and a de
pressed one. The first, its southern part, of slimy
mod covered by a shallow bay ; the last, its north
em and largest portion, of mud and inemstaticms
and rectangular crystals of salt-at a great depth
with a narrow ravine running through it, corres
ponding with the bed of the river Jordon at one ex
tremity, and the Wady •' el Jeib," or wady within
a wady at the other."
" The she" ooze," says Lieut. Maury, " upon
that plain at the bottom of the Dead Sea will not
fail to remind the meted historian of the " slime
pita" in the vale, where were joined in battle the
four kings with tire.'"
The advice of friends and my own judgment
have at length prevailed over my reluctance to in-
truce myself upon the public, and induced me to
address a wind of explanation to those with whom
i have so long acted and with whom I so entirely
I sympathise.

men--acartomed to obey his slightest wisher—:
the appeal was unanswerable. However painfully
mortifying, his friends, myself among the number,
were constrained to abandon ear wpm, and that
noble old atandard which had been thrown to the

From that moment the Whig party had ceased
