with , e, the Picayune gives the fol
lowing beautiful sketch of the lament of
in Irish mother, over the grate of her son:
'We witnessed one scene which pene
etraled to our very heart's core, as we pass
ed through the cemetery at a very late
hour in the afternoon. Beside a grave,
in an obscure corner of the cemetery, a
woman who had passed the meridian of
fife, and apparently belonged to the hum
bler class of society, was on her knees.
Her eyes were lit up with devotion, and
she prayed audibly that God might have
mercy on him for whom she sent forth her
oribins. The grave was unad•ened with
flowers; no sculptured stone told of its ten
ons, and hut one solitary candle burned be
fore it, by the light of which we could
lead on the plastering, in an inferior style

The devotee wore a black b met, made
without any regard to the prevailite! fash

the most impassioned piety, for the soul's
repose of her son—for such he seemed to
have been, over whose grave she bent—
the burst out in the folio /ving Nailing la

try. The dew seemed to fa I f,t-ter as she
wept, as if her sorrowing tones made the
atmosphere weep with pity. Thus went
she on:—.
Micheal, avic eta chree!
Why did ye lave me?
Why did you lave yer poor oilier

Thus went on the poor woman with her
elegy, in tones that were mournfully i
tive. The merits of her departed son, Mi

ing the burthen of her lamentations. Few
who had not heard her could conceive how

breaks in the English manufacturing dis
tricts have hi most instances been unjustly
severe. The following is a specimen:—On
the morning of the 15th of August, a large
mob of persons assembled at Congletort for
the purpose of pro ceding to Leek to stop
the factories. Oo their way eight of their
mob called at the house of a gentleman, and
asked for fund, which was given to them
from fear. They, however, did not enter
the house, the food being hande I to them
outside. For thus asking for food, they
were sentenced by Judge Creswell to
transportation for ten rears! What gives
additional point to the disproportion of tlies
sentences is the fact that the same Justice
Creswell had but a little while before seri

U. S. Bank.—The Spitit of the Times
says that it is rumored that James Ray
mond, the principto proprietor of the
splendid collection of animals, &c. now
exhibiting at the clrner of Broad and
Spruce street, is endeavoring to obtain of
the Trustees of the U. S. Bank, a lease of
that building for a GRAND MENAGERIE.
He says that theonly thing that would puz
zle him would be the location of the beasts,
&c.. in the different looms. In the Pres
dent's room, he put poses we understand,
to put the Hyena, because, as he says,
"the Hyena will swallow any thing and
every thing, little and big, clean and un
clean, without hesita'ion, and never dis
gorges." The monkeys he would put in
the Director's room, because they are such
adepts at appropriation and (abstraction.
The "plucked pigeons," he might place in
an) spot where the monkeys could get at
The Mary C. Rogers Mystery not Explain-
On Tuesday we published an article
from the N. Y. Tribune, purporting to be
an explanation of the mysterious disap.
pearance of Mary C Rogers, The substance
of it was that Mrs. Loss, who kept the lit
tle house so often mentioned as near the
spot of the supposed murder, being near
her death, sent the other day for a mag
istrate, and confessed that Miss. Rogers
came to her house with a young physician,
for certain purposes—that her death en•
sued —that her body was sunk in the river,
and her cl.ithes scattered through the
woods by Mrs. L's son, &c. &c.
The revelations were said to have leen
made to Justice Merritt, but in the Enqui .
rer of the 19th he published a note deny_
ing that any such confession had been
made to him, and states that it would be im
possible to obtain any information from
Mrs: Loss at the time mentioned, on ac
count of the deranged state of her mind.
On Saturday last, the sons of Mrs. Loss
and a number of other persons were exam•
ined on oath, but nothing was elicited
tending in the least to throw any light on
the death of Mary C. Rogers. The "great
secret" which the boys said would come
out on the death of Mrs. Loss, turned out
to be a secret cure for the rheumatism!
So that humsug is over.
A Texß , ..l tuage,
We cannot but admlire the followingwhich promp
Judge, on a man couv . c.cd of trrirder. It dis
plays a spirit of kiridness and humanity but sel
dom found in those whose duty it is to condemn
to death the unfortunate. He speaks as f Mows
to Mr. John Jones, the convict:—"The fact is,
Junes, that the court did not intend to order you
to bo executed before next spring, but the weath
er is very cold—our jail, unfortunately, is in a
very bad condition—much of the glass in the win
dows is broken—the chimneys are in such a di
lapidated state that no fire can be made to render
your apartments comfortable; besides, owing to
the great number or prisoners not more thun ono
blanket con be allowed to each; —to sleep soundly
aml comfortably, therefore, will be out of tie
question. In consideration of these circumstan
ces, and wis'iing to lessen your sufferings as much
as possible, the Coutt in the exercise of its hii
inanity and compassion, do hereby ordPr you to
be executed to-morrow morning, as soon after
breakfast as may be convenient to the Sheriff and
agreeable to you."
Washi ngion's Sword.
IL has been ascertained that the sword of Gen.
Washington, which was ruppnscd to have been
I st at sea, is now in the poss:lssion of Mr, Samu
el Washington, a grand,nepliew of the General,
I;ving in Kanawha county, Va. The sword was
given to his father by Gen. Washington, and also
a crab•tree cane, b queathed by Dr. Franklin to
Gen. Washington in the following words, which is
extracted from his will:
"My fine crabtree walking stick, with a gold
"! e IA curiously wrought in the:form of the cap o
liberty, I give to my friend, and the friend u
'mankind, General Washington. If it were a
"sceptre, he has merited it. and would become it."
It is said that both sword and cane will be pla
ced in the Nationel Institute at Washington.

Bank Charters.—The Si irrt of the
Times says there is not a doubt but the
charter of the Moyamensing Bank is for
tirins- reestab—

its return to an hlitest course, there is not a
hope. You might wit't equal propriety
attempt the resuscitation of a dead negro, as
to adduce any argument in juslification of
this,bank being placed on its legs again, in
order that it may stalk abroad to immolate
fresh victims! The tlesper Ile game has
been finished, and we hope soon to have the
satisfaction of being made acquainted with
the determination of the stock-holders to
"risk their all" in bringing about an honest
settlement of its affairs.
./2 Mistake.— We observe that some of
our exchanges state that Geo. Parkin, edi
tor of the Advocate of this city has recover
ed one hundred and fifty dollars damages
from", N. B. Craig, in a suit recently
tried in the District Court in this ci•
ty. This is a mistake, it was Craig that
had his wounded feelings plastered over
with the magnificent sum of $l5O damages.
The suit was Craig vs Parkin, and not
Parkin vs. Craig.
We du not wonder, however, that the
paper sabroi'd should suppose that in any li
bel suit in which N. B. Craig was interest
ed, his proper place would be that -of de
fendant, for no editor ever dealt , so exten•
sively in wholesale slander and 2mitupera
tion as he did while the Gazette eras under
his control. It was therefore a fiery natu

he was the culprit in the .proseautiha

Col. Webb in Limbo.
The N. Y. Herald of Sunday says tha
on Saturday last Colonel Webb :was ar
r-aigned on the recent indictment found I
against him "for leaving this State with
the intent to give or receive a challenge to
fight a duel," emanating from his meeting
with Thomas F. Marshall in Delaware.
When arraigned Webb pled "guilty," and
referred to the justification he had offered
on the previous trial. The District Attot ,
ney moved that Webb'. be committed to
prison. The Recordertlomrnitted him for
sentence. The reprater'of the Herald says:
"Webb was then placed in the charge of
one of the officers of the Court, and wilt
be confined in the room at the north end
adjoining the witness room of the Grand
Jury. This is the quarters usually devo
ted to the safe keeping of those members of
the community who are considered too
respectable and genteel to be sent into the
cells of the prison.
"We stopped the gentleman of color, with
the inquiry of "What have you got there?"
and he replied "0, Lard bless you, Massa;
a back had of nice things f.r Col. Webb,
with a little bit of something to make him
comfortable in this e7e nasty prison."
"As we descended the steps, op came an
other porter with another basket filled with
tumblers, decanters, and numerous other et
ceteras, showing that the now gallant Colo
nel does not intend to starve either himself
or his friends in his new place of abode for
a few short days.
"As we were leaving the court room, we
spied a stout, sturdy buck negro, wending
his way in that vicinity, and staggering un•

Metallic Test of itt-! soundness of Demo
erotic Princlples•
We think Federalism. since its degeneracy first
into Whigery, and finally into -Connery, will be
compelled to surrender one of the most effective
means of attack employed for many years with
much euecess against the Democracy. The pop
ular party of' this country was always represented
by Federalism as harboring Jacobinical designs—
seeking to destroy the rights of' property, and to
introduce agrarianism—t 3 defeat the obligation c f
contracts, and set the laws at defi ince—to render
Got ernment unstable, and life itself unsafe. These
suggestions have ever been in st sueceQsfully ad
dressed to moneyed men, and men of property,
who, having made provision for the ease and
comfort of old age, and for that of their ri-ing
family, are always sensitive, to the last degree, to
whatever endangers their acquisitions, however
remotely. The wealthy, therefore, when threat
ened in party struggles, like pursued deer, have
the quickest ear and eye, an l the most sensitive
nostril, to indicate the approach of an enemy. The
rapid rise in the State stock of New York, is the
most decisive expression of opinino ever given by
the holders of property most easily affected by the
acts of Government, that they coeas'der safe, stae
ble, honest legislation and administration in ire
certainly to he anticipated from the Democracy
than Irons Federalism. This opinion has been
gradually maturing ever since Federalism reached
pOwer in the General Government. The destruc
tion of the obligations of enn'raets by the bank
rupt law—the countenance given to the frauls and
suspensions of the banks by the Federal party
in Congress and in state Legislatures—the propo
sition to assume the State debts, and pay them by
fraudulent issue of paper money by the General
Government—the p'rversion of the land fund
from the purposes to which it is consecrated by
the Con , tittrion—and all this followed up by ex
travagance in the State expenditures, fed to by
loans, without any support by taxes--has thor•
ooghly discredited Federalism in the eyes of all
having a stake in property, and has enny;need
them that the party which his always lahored to
secure to the poorest of the people their political
rights is, after all, the safest depository of the
rights of property.
The following extract from the money cuticle of
the N. Y. Herald speaks to the purpose:
