    The Grand Prairie.
A letter in the Cincinnati Gazette from
Illinois, dated -July ist thus speaks of the
great Prairies:
- "The prairies of this season afford the fi•
lent view imaginable; they :esemble vast
with bead-land and penensulas .on
*tight hand and on the left, jotting out
%kr t sea of grass and flowers; while in the
- 21ietance, in various directions are seen
roves of timber, like small Islands imbed
ded in an ocean of green. The bays and
severe formed by the projecting headlands
tip being converted into cultivated farms.
• There is a constant succession of flowers
from early May to the frosts of October.—
the spring, pink and white prevail, du
ring the summer, scarlet and crimson; and
'owards autumn, yellow predominates, in
terspersed with other colors. At this time,
'strawberries of large size and fine flavor
Abound. All we have to do in order to
enjoy them to perfection is, an hour before
sea time to send two or three bairns, from
twenty to fifty rods from the house, and
they will return with from three to six and
eight quarts of ae fine fruit as one could
Atisire. There is a slight drawback, how
ewer, even in picking strawberries in the
prairies: you occasionally meet with an ug•l

The Disposition to commit Suicide.—
For some period before the individual
manifests a morbid propensity to sacrifice
his own !if., the mind may have dwelt
upon the idea of self destruction. In some
cases the impulse is apparantly--effddeu in
its develop/idol; but
_will_.2.onsalkily be
found, upon inquiry, that - the notion of sui.
ride batbeen haunting the imagination for
a considerable time before the act is per
petrated'or attempted. When the mind has
been directed or engaged in a particular
train of morbid conte rplation for any
bitrigrh of time, the face assumes a peculiar
cast, which is present in no other state of
mental feeling. The practitioner who has
had any experience in these case's can ea
sily detect the existence' of the suicidal
propensity. With a view to the preven
tion of self-murder, how important is it
that the physician should make himself
practically acquainted with this indication!
Petiman relates that Lord M having re
evinced Stuart, a distinguished artist in
London, to paint a portrait of his brother,
* captain in the army. he did so with
great accuracy. When Lord M. saw the
portrait, he exclaimed, 'This is not the
portrait of my brother,—it is the portrait
sof a madman.' The painter requested
another sitting;his Lordship saw the paint.

appears more mad than before.' Three
weeks after the captain blew out his brains!

FRIDAY, JULY 27, 1843
The Gazette of Wednesday evening
contained a spasmodic effort to "rouse the
blue noses from their lethargy," and to
make the more creddlotts believe that there
is still hope for their cause. It contained
a vast amount of froth and Flummery about
the purity and patriotism of antimasonry,
but so bunglingly put together, that the
most inexperienced can see that it is the
desperate struggle of the most forlorn of
forlorn hopes. To talk to the people of
Allegheny about the honesty and purity of
antimas inry, after the fifteen years' exper
ience they have hadof its corruption, and
its impudent disregard of the leading prin
ciple of the party,evinces a reliance on the
power of humbug that would be highly
commendable in a cause less worthless.
i Does the editor of the Gazette suppose
that the people do not remember that dur ,
ing the fifteen. years' pretended war against
masonry, it has annually formed alliances
with the "blood stained order." Don't
they know that year after year, the anti,
masons of the country have been persuade

In 1842, N. B. Craig, a man who has
preached more autimasonry,since he found
it would be profitable, than any other man
in the state, was elected to the legislature,
and then it was expected that the lodge
would be demolished. Mr. Craig was at
length in a position where he could give
masonry a deathblow, sad froth his, long
professions of hatred for the lodge, every
one supposed that immediately after tak
ing his seat, he would make a dernonstra•
Lion against the masons, and continne the
war throughout the session. But Mr.
Craig did not act as foolishly as some ex
pected he would; he adopted the course
that/tad been pursued by every other anti ,
mason when they got into office; he took
his seat, drew his three dollars per day;

Such is the manner in which the prin.

This is but a slight sketch of antimasoniy,

manner in which the great body of that
party, has been deceived and humbugged
by its leaders.

nominated it was for the Congress of 1893
& 44, and had an election taken place last
fall and he been elected he could not have
taken his seat till December, 1843, conse
quently his nomination stands good to all
intents and purposes. It is true if the
democrats are disposed to act in bad faith

Something Novel
Messrs. Editors—An article under the above
head, signed A Countryman, appeared in yo it
paper of Tuesday,whiela is an indirect attack on
the Temperance movement, and a reflection upon
conduct of the Judges of oar Court. The writer
commences with stating "that the Treasurer of
Allegheny county is smd to have reported in a
yes tic manner, that within the Net week, he has
refunded about aixteen hundred dollar.s to persons
who had epplied f,r Lioenau at the last term ut
the Court, but whoao petitions were vetoed un the
grounds of Temperance pr.nciples." "Oh tempe
r*, oh moses"—what an awful calamity. The
wicked Judges to veto out of the counties' pock
et, sixteen hundred dollars. If true, Messrs. Edi
tors, which I have not yet hal an opportunity of
learning, 1 think it would be a very easy matter
to prove, that it will be a saving to the country
of double that amount—but I em extremely doubt+
ful of the truth of the statement. Mr. Country
man then goes on and says —"Tbe discretion sup-
posed to ter vested in the Judges in this respect,
has beer' most imprudently exercised; that'the best
men, the most suitable persons to control (he did
not say keep) taverns, have been disregarded by
the Judge, (which Judge?) on whom rests the re
sponsibility of the selections devoted to censure."
—Judge, take care, this - Countryman has got you
ire a fix—"the selections devoted to consu•e, which
yea are responsible fur,Anay bring down upon you
the execrations of the innocent grog 'sellers arid
the rum suckers, acid sponges, who still hang a
bout the doggcrica.
What supposed discretion have the Judges in
the matter of granting licenses? Does a Couns
tryman suppose that Ju Igee have the discretion
to violate acts of assembly, or decisions of the Sue ,
preme Court? If so, they aro above all law—Mr
Countryman says "every person applying for li
as required by law, is entitled to it. Oh
ho, Jenny Piper's nowe is something novel, very.
Why don't Mr, Countryman cite a case in which
the individual applying for license, had all the re
quirements of the law'', and was refused tone by the
hard heurtod Judges? He can't de it, Messrs.
E liters; I'll engage` to make up the lose to the

Mr. Countryman's communication had a three
fold object—to injure the temperance cause, threat
ce the court and please the doggery keepers. Ins
telligent temperance men don't remonstrate a
gerund houses that have the revirements of the
law. They know what they arc doing, arc sober,
& in their right mind. They occupy broad ground
and strong ground, built uponiiter, morals and
christianity. Mr. Countryman did certainly not
consider well, or be would not hose penned his
article against fetich odds. I think, upon reflec
tion, he will surely be sorry for h;s something no
eel, and back out of the company. If not, I'll
vouch for it, the temperance men will be pleased
to discuss the subject or anything connected with
the glorious cause, either though the medium of
a newcepappr, or on the stump. To say the least
of a Couotryman's eirticle. it shows quite green,
and smells strongly of a certain pettifogger or
groggery keeper. I will stop; for the present, by

referred to, should he not do it, let hem hide his

Bicknell's Reporter gives the following as to
the present condition of things in Philadelphia:
"Philadelphia is in a sounder, stronger condi
tion than she has been in fur some time. Most of
her business men who were crippled, and were
living from day to day on protracted credit, have
gone by the board, and thus with the weak and
withered branches lopped off, the great body of her
commercial dealers are sound in means and is
character. Our banks, too, are in better condi
tion than they have been for some time. Their
Means are ample, the public have confidence in
them, they are creditors to the monied institutions
of New York, and we believe that most of them
pursue a legitimate c•'urse of business. They all
pay specie freely and promptly, with the excep
lion of one or two that decline paying it on their '
Relief notes, and the people who some months
back looked upon them with distrust and suspi
cion, now tako their notes readi'y cud freely and
without the slightest alarm. Surely, then, affairs
hove changed for the belt •r. Phdtdelphia, which
has been so much scoffed at, mocked and derided,
has passed through a fiery ordeal, and although
she has suffered, there is no city in the world, the
great body of whose merchants are more honest
and upright in their dealings."
