VIRTUOUS ' POVERTY—THE POOR SEAM
Much has been said and written 014 the blessings at,
tenths/non virtue in distress, honesty in want, and in
tegrity amidst suffering and temptation, but it is an ea
sy matter for those who - are in affluence, surrounded by
comforts, and supplied with all thatcan minister to . the
wants and desires of our physical nature to philoso
phise, and specuLate en these topics.
Many has been the dull, drowsy homily, many the
labored hypothetical, panegyric and eulogy pronoun
ced upon virtuous poverty.
It is indeed the cant of the day to laud virtue in
rags, and praise honesty, when contemplated in the
debtor's prison! The epicure surfeited with indul
gence; the successful adventurer who has attained the
height of his ambition: the statesman in the plenitude ;
of his power, and the millionaire in his luxurious villa,
. will descant glowingly on the glorious and animating'
spectacle afforded by the poor but virtuous man. But
the struggle. the effort, the agony to hold fast, firmly,
and unflinching, integrity when oppressed by want and
poverty—to retain principle when beset by temptation:
to abstain from sin, when its temporary and partial
Commission would at once relieve from the pangs of'
privation, hunger and want. All! the intensity of this
trial, (as it has well been said by one who knew, and
who wrote feelingly on the subject,) can only be appre-j
ciated and comprehended by those, whose fearful doom
it has been to brave it!!! What we ask is the reward
of virtue? When Adam and Eye were placed in the
garden of Eden, they were in the first place supplied
with every thing that could gratify the senses, or con
tribute to the fruition of their desires. The eye, the
ear, the fancy, the whole organization, physical and
mental power provided fur, before---a law was given. ,
Let our readers rernember---that no law was reveal e d
until all else was provided for.
Ask the ever toiling seamstress, what she gets for I I
her unspotted, unblemished life, purity of morals,
chaste and rigid conduct. She lives in 0 hack room,
in a confined obscure street, in the third or fourth stars,
has not by the never cea-ing exertiens of her needle,
the means to obtain even the absolute necessaries of
life—her room is scantily furnished. her wardrobe is
small, often she has but one meal a day—she is ill
treated, sometimes insulted by her heartless and bru.
tal employers, she lives in solitude. and she is banished
by the "respectable part of the corn:nullity," and social
exclusion is her irrevocable sentence, because she is
poor! The happiness and blessings, the joys and corn.'
hots of the starving poor, are themes for the Caney phil
`eisopher, and the ideal poot. but who can tell, who can
portry, who can graphically and truthfully delineate,
the miseries, the privations, the sorrows, and the soul's
pangs, which the virtuous poor realize, and. from day to
day, week to week, patiently and uncomplainingly en
dure? God help the poor! N. Y. Ch,ron

COMNISS lON:MS.—The Beaver Argus is out
in a furious article against JA3IES CLAXICE I one of
the democratic candidates for Canal Commissioner,
and while a: ailing Mr. Clarke, has the unblushing
impudence to attempt a defence of the infamous con
duct of the Ritnet Board. during the election cam
paign of 1838. The corruptions practised by Dickey
and Stevens during dila mimmable contest, is still
fresh in the minds of the people, and cannot be forgot
ten as long as they feel an abhorrence for political
fraud and villany. IVho can forget the hordeb of pimps
and slanderers that were fed from the patronage of the
public wcrks, and who were on all occasions ready to
swear to all the falsehoods that were concocted and pub
lished against the democratic party and its prominent
men? Does nut every nue remember the manner in
which the legal voters of some of the districts in Hun
tingdon and Adams county were overwhelmed by the
mercenary bends of the Canal Commissionars,and paid
for committing these outrages from the public Treasu
It is well known that the money expended during
that year by the Canal Cornmissiosers in theiretrorts to
carry the election against the people, was made the
subj'ct of legislative investigation, and that it was dis
covered that hundreds of thousands have been burrowed
on the credit of the State, and squandered by the Canal
officers without the slightest legal authority fur doing
so. If we have time, we will refer to the "documents"
and give the conduct of the whip Comnaissioners in
1838 a more special notice hereafter.

the last Legislature, but who for some local cause was
not renominated, has come oat as a volunteer. W e are
sorry to see this, as Mr. Long cannot hope to do more
than to defeat the democratic candidate, and thus do
more for our political opponents than they could ever
effect by their own exertions. Such conduct is not
characteristic of a good democrat; those who regard the
principles and success of the party more than the
emoluments of office, will never permit their names to
be used for distracting the party, or for defeating the
ticket placed in nomination by those with whom they
profess to act.

In the United States labor is better paid than in any
other country in the world, nominally. But by the nu
merous devices which have been resorted to by the con
sumers, the wages ollabar have not been what they ap
peared on their face. Among one of the most success
ful devices has been the resort of the manufacture of a
currency from paper through legal sanction, and thus
being able to pay for labor in that which actually cost
them malting. This among other device's has caused
the relative condition of the producer and consumer in
this country, to present the same aspect as in the old
world. It has not, indeed, assurne.l am great a dispar
ity, but the wealth of the country is certainly not in the
hands of those who produced it from labor, but has ag
ereertted in the hinds of those who are cog tzeci in
Itraffic—the capitalist, and all those other classes that

In illustration of the fiact mentioned in one of the recent

in the province of Kiang-Nan, built entirely of
cast iron, eovered with bas-reliefs and inscriptions,
whose dates and style of character refer back to the ep-

N ODD STORY.—There is a Letter on the Exchange

' way with the anchor of the brig Rowena in Laguayra
Road the 2:11 of last August, taking vessel and all off
with him! The letter says—
The wtather perfectly calm, I discovered the vessel
moving slowly about among the shipping—l could not
concieve what could be the matter--I ordered to heave
in and see if the anchor was gone,but it was not—but to
my surprise, I found a tremendous monster entangled
fast to the buoy rope, and moving the anchor slowly a
-1 long the bottom; I then had the fish towed ashore--it
was of a flatish shape, something like a Devil Fish, but
very curious shape, being wider than it was long, and
having two tusks, one each side of the mouth, and a
very small tail in proportion to the fish, and exactly like
a boat's tail. The tail can be seen on board the brig
Rowena. The dimensions of the fish was as follows:
length from end of the tail to end of the tusk 18 feet—
from wing to wing 90 feet—the month 4 feet wide, and
its weight 3,5000:v.
