The greatest curse to me;
Forever and forever,

And sirengtboo me was given • --

Tye broke 114 chain that bound me
To infamy and vice;
That sorroisf brought around me.
And turned my heart twice .

From my affections tar,
And made me peace surrender
Beneath vile Bacchus' car.
Of every hope and pleasure
The glass has been the tomb,
And anguish, , wititont measure,
Brought to my wretched home.
Were earth a t7,oloen palace.
And could I call it mine,
I would not touch the chalice
Where flows the tempting Wine
Where flows the wine is-sorrow
That cannot be espresse‘l
There is an bright to•morrow
To cheer the lib° , ing breast.
The-hope that loth attend

Here leaves a,sting to re I us.
And murder us forsooth.
But I hare p'.*xlge3 forever,

at a distanie, eutrappeals mae to ever y' low ap
petite, every depraved feeling, while the head and
heart were debauched, to prevail over principleand
honor. These profligate courses, on all hands, have
for the most part neutralized each other, and result
ed in the different combinations uniting under the
junta of the South, which, holding the balance of
power in the convention and in the country, could
promise:tomake its nominee r an available candi

people have never had a presidential- candidate
they expected. So far as the nation is concerned,
the President begotten of the convention has Ursa.
riably proved an abortion, but always a creature
easily licked into shape to suit the purposes of the
brooding faction to which it owed its existence.
A primary election for a presidential candidate
may be as easily concerted and held by the volun
tary action of the people, as the the final one, an
thorbted by law. This mode of ascertaining the
public wit!, and concentrating its vote on the moat
popular candidate, has been already tried, with the
best success, in several cities and counties; and
what is thus done in a portion of a state, observing
all the forms & safeguards of a regular election, may
be done throughout a state and all the statesekeive
to a nomination the highest sanction. The princi•
ple of a plurality governing is so universally adopt
ed in legitimate elections, that it would doub.lesa
be more readily acquiesced in than the dictation of
the spurious delegations in convention, with its two
thirds rule, giving one-third power over its pro
ceeding!. In 'every emergency of the coin:art,.
the untrammelled public suffrage is the surest
deliverance. When that emergency is produc

• If ever there were an occasion for summoning
the sovereign power to break the fetters imposed
on it by the arts of Lilliputian politicians, it exists
now. We see a solemn compact entered into be
tween the South and the North, and sanctioned by
30 years' unquestioned approval, nellified by an
act of Congress got up in cantos, and passed wi h
haste, without consulting the wishes or opinions of
either of the parties to it. This pretence for this
flagrant breach 01 plighted faith, so long held invi
olable, is, in every sense, Lase, and an insult to
the understanding. lie assumption on the parrot
those violating, the rights of their northern constitu
ents, by voting the repeal of the alksouri Cot:tyro•
liaise, is, that it will give the right of introducing or
exc:nding slavery to the people. The sou.hern con
federates of ihc betrayers of the North say, ou the
contrary, that the Missouri compact was annulled
because it was unconstitutional, in excluding sla
very, and that the people of the territory cannot
exclude it ; and they ail united in rejecting an
amendment to the bill declaring the authority of the
people, through their legislanne, to exclude sia
veiy. The act, as passed, makes this right (denied

OT grist mill. The weevil exhibits: in swarms
around the barn the female laying her eggs upon
the graio, and the grub's, as soon u batched, work
into the kernel, consuming all bat the bran, and,
without breaking that so as to show that all is rot
tenness within. The ravages of this insect •are so
destructive at the South, that it is difficult to keep
wheat and corn. The latter is generally put up
with the shocks on, which is damp or else heavily
salted. Wheat is kept in close casks or tight bins.
It may be kept by covering with flower of lime an
inch deep over the surface.
The insect that. has destroyed so much grain, the
present season, is a yellow fly, (with blue wings,)
about one tenth of an inch in length; it deposits its
egg while the wheat is in blossom, within the chaffy
scales of the flower during the evening twilight
and dark stormy days, in number from two to forty,
which hatch in ten days and completely destroys
the germ of the berry. The maggot is reddish yel
low, about one-sixteeteli of an inch long, or per
haps an eight when full grown It leaves the head
and winters in the ground. That is the time to kill
them. Salt is undoubtedly the remedy. The fly
is hardly ever seen ; they never fly in the sun
shine. The weevil fill the air like mnsketoes in a
swamp. This insect hides on the stem. and
leaves, shaded from the heat of the sun. This is a
northern insect: the weevil is a southern one.
This insect was first seen in America about the
year 1828, in the northern part of Vermont and the
borders of Lower Canada. It first made its appear
ance in Northern Ohio in the year 1943, and its
ravages have rapidly increased from year to 3 ,smr.
Dr. Harris recommends brimstone fumigation of
the plants. That would be impossible, almost, in
vrl i ole counties Flower of lime sown on wet

any grain upon it next year might eradicate the

Asrcrerre or Dorroa EMMCINII.—The doctor, it
is said, was no great lover of sweet sounds ; and re•
ligionsly excluded from his !netting house at: ir-
Strumental music, except a hide mahogany-trolli
ed wooden pitch-pipe of the size of an " eighteen
mo" book. A member of hts choir who had learn •
ed to plsethe bass-vtol, auxions to exhibit
eady one Sunday morning most unadvised intro
duced his big fiddle, into the singing gallery.—
After the first prayer was ended, and the doctor
began to handle his " Watts," the base violet lifted
up his profanation, and trying his strings, instantly
attracted the doctor's attention He
down his hymn book, took his sermon from the
cushion, and proceeded with his discourse, as if
singing was co part of public worship, and tinatt3
dismissed the congr%ration without note or com
ment. The whole choir was indignant. They
stayed abet meeting, and all the girls and young
men resolved nor to go into the "singing seam" at
all in the afternoon, and the elders wto did go
there, bore the visages of men whose minds were
made up. Service began as usual in the af:ernoon.
The doctor took his book in his hand, looked over
his spectacles at the gallery, and saw Daly a few
there but nothing daunted, read a psalm and sat
down. No $03n1.1 followed, no one stirred ; and the
leader looked up in utter unconsciousness. Ater
a long and most =easy silence, the good man, his
face somewhat over-dashed, his manner rather
teem, read the Naha again, paused, then re-read
the first Terse, and pushing up his spertacke, look
ed interrogatively at diegalleq. The leader could
bear i: no imager, and half rising said decidedly :
There won't be may singing here thisattemoon."

Vent Tercrtma—Rene is a to=hing description
of a moonlight a-tene. Aker whiiling for some
time in the ecstatic mazes of a deli,ghttni waltz,
Cornelia and myself stepped out unobserved on to
the balcony, to ploy a few of those 'momtnts of
solitude so precious to lovers. It was a glorious
night—the air was cool and refreshing As I gazed
on the beautiful being at my side, I thu4o I never
saw her look so lovely ; the full moon cast her
bright rays over her whole person. giving her an
almost angelic appearance, and imparting to her
flowing earls a still more rider' one. One of her ,
soft, fair hands rested in mine, and ever and . 1 114 n
she met my antentgaze with one of pore, confid.„
ing love. Suddenly a thange came over her-soft
features, her full, red rip trembled as with suppMs
tied emotions a tear-Jtop rested on her long, droop•
ing lashes, the muscles amend her fa.uhlesa moue'
became convulsed, she gasped for breath-Land,
matching her hand from the warm pressure of my
own, she tamed suddenly, away, bustled hei Lice
is her fine cambric handkerchief, and—sucezed!
