That same spirit which animated the
mothers of. New England, prior to the con

foreign ag,areSsion.although at the expense
of domestic immolation. And as son after

participate n the danger and glory of the
great struggle for republican liberty, that
mother forgot the natural yearnings for
her offspring in her deep seated love for
the land of her adoption. She knew not,
at that early period, the reward that was
in store for her, favored and favorite child.
Her imagination had not pictured a new
empire springing into existence, which

theftources of, his power. And she
could not see in the youthful Carolinian
the SUCCCUfiII General, or the popular Pres
ident of a new republic, predestinated to
'revolutionize the workings of the social
system. But if it is permitted to those
called hence to witness from their lofty
sphere the changes and chances of this life,
to partake of our joys and our sorrows,
with - what maternal exultation must she
have pursued his brilliant career, and gazed
with fondness upou its happy termination.
Education, 'profound or polite,.was not
to be acquired during the stirring scenes of
the Revolutionary war. The schoelinas
ter was there, but his superiority was su
perseded by a higher authO'rity. -Even the
sanctity - of the "meeting house," where the
Rev..Mr. - Hurnpliries instructed Jackson in
the .dead languages, was. invaded, and the
pedagogue and his pupils were placed upon
an equality in rreparing for the common
defence. Books were turned into. wadding;
the fefule was supplanted by the sword,
and the foolscap by the helmet; the hunt
ing shirt took the place of the roundabout,
and the rifle and the powder horn that of
the satchel. The juvenile ramparts, thrown
up at mid-day, were deserted, and protec
don was sought for in the forts and block
houses of the early pioneer.
In the midst of all this excitement, Jack
son acquired the rudiments of en education
which, - riveted upon his strong faculties,
-enabled him to surmount difficulties in' his
subsequent acqusitions of knowledge, and
which were illustrated in the military and
intellectual achievements of his maturer

"But man and steel, the soldier and his sword;'
many a young man wandered there, to test
the strength of his constitution, and to
carve his way to glory and to fame.
Thence went Andrew Jackson! The
incursions and depredations of the savages
soon afforded him an opportunity to display
those military qualities which subsequently
raised him to posts of the highest distinc
tion. His bravery exacted fear froin his
enemies, and commanded their highest ad
miration.—The red warrior, who fired the
cabin and scalped the unprotected mother
and her children, received his recompense

of the Indian; yet assailed the ear of the
people, they assembled la solemn council
to form a Constitution for their mutual goy
ernment and safety.
To that Convention Jackson was elected
a delegate, and he there-Exhibited the same
skill an I disecrinnent in laying the foun
dationsof a State, that he exhibited in other
great enterprizes, civic and military. Stout
hearts and strong minds were prmnt at
that convocation, and among , .them,; pre

subject of this eulogy. They modelled a

Altho gh he was neither "the cunning
nor the eloquent-orator," he was
gifted b Heaven with those masculine
powers Of mind, which rendered him a val

whom he was surrounded. The principal

during his legislative career was the repeal

Anxious for the retirement so often
sought for, and so seldom attained by the
eminent and the good, he abandoned the
stage of political - collision, before the ex

took up his abode on the sunny banks of

pistrustful of his legal attainments, and
his ability to spread the broad platform on

exercised the duties of- his high vocation
only for a limited period.
Clear and.discriminating he looked more
to the ess - nee than to - the bodily form of

right prevailed over mere legal technical

'FLova .a..civ'iqz.e.r..--Tbe news received from
Europe, at, the close of last. week, by'the steamers
Great Western and Hibernia, produced quite an ex-,
citement in the flour market, and had the effect of
advancing prices from sd to 75 centS, per barrel,
and.on MuKay heavy transactions were made at
from $4 .. ,12f to $.1,25, principally for shipment
Eastward ; pricds ranging at. Baltimore, Philadel
phia, New York and Boston, for export, from $5,00
to $0,25. Owing to the unusually large receipt at
this place, since the advance, it begins to show a
downward tendency. and, yesterday sellers .were
shy, and appeared unwilling to buy at $l,OO, anti.
cipatiag a still further decline, one,of our heaviest
dealers did effect a few light transactions, at-$3,S7i
osl. The receipt is double that it has ever before
been at such a low atage . orwater as there is at pres
ent in our rivers, and the sto_c_k on hand, waiting for a
rise in the water, to be brought forward s is unusual
ly large. The amount of Corn ; meal at present in
market is but trifling.
Ga.i.xx—.Since our last review Wheat has un
dergone a still further advance, and was in good
demand yesterday. at 70 cts. per bliih.—the last
accounts from the east notice an advance. Oats
continue in active demand at 10020, at whi l ch
rates we notice the sale of a number of large lots.
Rye remains firm at 33, with -la good demand.—
The amount. of cOrn• on hand is not largesales
were made from store yesterday at 33. Barley is
selling from 30 to 40, owing to quality altogether.
