The thong that bound my wrist was cut, -leaving

I shut my eyes—waiting for the pull. It was
but a moment, but it seemed a - life time. Theta
was a dead silence—a stillness like that which pre

my feet touching the branches above, and throwing

trappings never came up after that plunge. ,
During all this time, shots were ringing over me.
I could hear the shouts and cheering of men, the
trampling of heavy hoofs and the clashing of Fa;
brei; I knew that a skirmish was going on above
me ; btit I could see nothing. I was below the
level of the cliff..
I lay in terrible suspense, listening, \I dare not
change my postnre. I dared not move. The
weight of the iaroctio's body had hitherto held my
feet secured in the notch ; 'but that wa. gone, and
my ankles were pith ned A Inlmer.t, and my
legs may fall otT the limb, and drag me downward.
I was faint too, horn the protracted struggle for life
and death, wild I hogged the tree, and held on like
a wou tied squirrel.
The shots seemed leSs frequent ; the shouts ap•

cheer, an Anglo-Saxon cheer, an American cheer—

I looked around upon my deliverers. Lincoln
was dancing like a lunatic, urtering his wild half
Indian yells. A dozen men, in the dark green uni
form of the " mountain rides," stood looking on
and laughing at this grotesque exhibition. Close
by, another party were guarding some prisoneis ;
while a hundred others were seen in scattering

ErrEcvs OF trite CLIMATE —ln the trophical see
r_.,tioti , the !tower of file in nature is carded to its
highest degree; thus with the tropical man, the
lite of the body over-masters that of the soul; the
physical instincts of our nature eclipse those of the
higher faculties ; passion predominates over Intel
teat and reason ; the passive faculties Aeiature
too rich, too prodigal of her gifts, does not compel
man to wrest from her his daily bread by his daily
toil. A regular climate, and the absenceof a dor
mant season, render forethought of little use to hint.
Nothing incites him to that straggle of intelligence
against nature which raises the power Orman .to
;heir highest pi•ch. Thus he never dreams of re.
sisting physical nature.; he is conquered by her.;
he submits to the yoke, and becomes again the an- ,
imal man, in proportion as he abandons himself to,
external influences, forgetful of his high moral des-i.
tination. In the temperate climates, all is. activity
and movements. The alterations of heat and-more
embracing air, incite man to a constant struggle to
forethought, and to the vigorous employment of all
his &citifies. A mare economical - nature yields
nothing, except to the sweat of his brow y; every
gift on his part is a recompense for . effort of his.—.
Natbre here, even while chalinping man to the
conflict, gives him the hope of victory; and if she
does not show herself prodigal, she grants, to his
active and intelligent labor more than hia necessi
ties require ; while she calls out his energy, she
thus gives him ease and leisure, which permit Writ
to cultivate all the lofty faculties of his higher tie=
tore. Here, physical nature is not a tyrant, but a
useful helper ; the active faculties ; the otulerstsml
ing, and.the reason, rule over the instincts and the
.passtce faculties ; the soul over the body ; man
over tia•nre.—Guyof s-Earth and Man.

The Viligs and the - Adopted Citizeits.,
" Tharkhe liberal principles imbodied by Jefferson
is the Declaration of Indepencicuce, and sanctioned
in the constitution, which" inatcei once' the land of
liberty and the asylnui of the-oppressed of every na
tion, have ever been cardinal principles• in' the de
mocratic faith; and every attempt to abridge the
privilege of becoming citizens and the owners of
soil among us ought to be resisted with the same
spirit which swept the alien and sedition laws limn
our statute-books."
This is the language of four Democratic Nation.
al Conventions against the schemes of native Ame
ricana. it Was adopted by the great convention
which nominated Gen. Pierce. It stands out a.sthe.
boldest defiance of the foes of the adapted.citizens
that ever has been made. 111 the lace-of prejudice
and passion—in the lace of the violent and bloody
persecution of the foreigners—it has been readopt
ed and adhered to: and it has titian carried out
with the same heroic firmness from the begining to
the present day. No such declaration has has ey. 4:
er proceeded from the whig party, bkrinse the wbi
party has relied upon and received the votes of the
native-Americans. In 1844 and 1848, the whole
body of the native•Anteficans voted against the
democratic•paity; and the cowardly silence of the
whigs in their last convention, so consistent with
their policy before, was intended to prepare the
way for another nativist demonstration in favor of
the whig party at the coming election. As if to
make the intention of that convention more clear
and decided, a strong resolroion 'was arlopten, in
%Olen the cause of the snuggling nations against
the nespcis of EU! 3i)O was delthera•ely distouraged
Is it not, then, a manifestation of extraordinary ef
frontery in this party now to pretend to favor the •
cause of the adopted citizen after being recently and
doubly committed against it? It would. be .the
ma-t unaccountable infatuation it thisdrnputlent and
disgusting preteece had influence over the single
vote of a single adopted eititten. It requires the
most reckless,disregard of consistency and of truth
in any whig to. attempt to argue, in the teeth of
such acourse of ennduct - ns has been adopted ay the
the whig party, that the whips are in favor of liber
al naturalization laws ; but tilts task, degrading and
difficult as it is, is cheettully undertakeu by prufli•
gate presses like the New York Tribune, and by
abandoned mercenaries like IV. E Robinson, of the
same city.
In 1843, after the riots in Pennsylvania, the
Whigs obtained the vote of every' political native
American for Mr. Clay. This is hibtory. The ad
opted citizens, terrified 'at the erusaileagainst them,
and alairneil for their lives and the-ir propeity—lor
it is well known that two riots followed each other
in rapid and in startling succession—SOUGHT FIIEL.
"Fne:c :hey were safe. That great party,composed
of men ot-atl creeds and of all persua-iinns, was
united upon that high principle only loss sacred thn3
reli:4ion itself—the principle of religious toleration
and beedom of conscience. It welcomed the per
secured to its arms. It defends them against their
foes, becoming a rampart around them, and beating
back the combinations headed them by some men who
falsely professed to be in floor cif the cause of the adopt
ed citizens. While the L C. Levitt; and the SV. S.
Archers, and the J. W. Ashmeads, and the J. Wat
son %Vebbs, opposed and assailed them, the Frank
lin Pierces and the %Villiam 'R
Kings stood by
tliern and advocated their just rights. Ail this is
But what more? The adopted citizens in 1114 I
voted for Mr. Pots : and atter the election in which
he triumphed by their aid, the whig leadets and
the wing press for Scott, °ccN.l.v ADVOCATED THE
a:A poured out the vials of their wrath upon the
foreigners and upon the adopted citizens. There
were then no Robinsons, as there are now, to stand t
up and charge the democracy with being false to
.hose whom it has always defended, because that
infamous accusation was nbt , then nertessary to
whig designs. This, too, is history.
Whet followed the election of General Taylor in
1848? The appointment of hundreds of native-
Americans to office. He was the native-American, long before he became the whig condi- I
date, and he rewarded his friends. Contemporam.l
eons with his election was the trinmph of all the
native-Americans 'and Whig candidates in PhilaJel- 1
phia—the scene of the Philetlalphia riots—and ilia I

upon their banners: ' And this, also, is history.
There is etre great fact which remains to be re
called to national recollection ;-, and That ia.the posir

build the hope of being able to rally ilte Catholics
anti e adopted citizens to the standard borne by
W. H. Seward, who declared - to Governor Smithy
in the executive chamber of Virginia, that he would
exchange cargoes of southern free negroes for as ma
ny cargoes of while emigrants from Ireland and
Germany; and that society, and New York especi
ally, would profit by the exchange., But ignorant
as the whip leader* believe the people, including
;he atlop:ed citizens, to he, there is quite enough po•
pular intelligence to denounce, to expose, and to
exercrate the shametel and shameleis efforts made
those same leaders to consolidate the opted citi
zens upon Gen Scott.
The adopted citizens have hearts to feel. and
memories to retain, the historical devotion of the
democratic party to their past rights in she face of a
host of foes ; and the expectation, therefore, that
they will desert this party is not only an insult, but
it is unnatural and abhorrent. There is not a patri
ot that Ireland.ever venerated—there is not a hero
that Germany eve; adored—there has not been a
martyr to Inman freedom on any spot of God's
globe—who, if alisie now, would not point to the

and firmest advocate n 1 the tights of the oppressed.

tour. He has been before the country for three

has been no indication of that popular enthusiasm,
