must lead to the extinguishment of the flame; and that
his first move must be a move to destruction. It is, in
deed, a pity to say any thing to disturb so agreeable a
delusion. But a delusion it is as all wise men know.
The fire of repeal is a flame that will not go out of it
self, and wo to those who would trample it out and vi
olently extinguish it. The torrent of Irish repeal is a

Whose icy current and compulsive course
Neer feels retiring ebb, but keeps due on

The time for arresting its course has paused. The
time for reralling a confidence and a reverence that
have been so shamelessly abused, has long since gone
by. Only one course is left us—thst.of quietly and de
cently disposing ourselves to make terms with the in
evitable, and taking counsel how we may beat adjust .
the method and the conditions of repeal. . It is a sad
thing to come to this necessity with our eyes open, but
it is far.aadder to be clutched be necessity neaware.

They are about to hang a very pretty girl named
Rosanna Keen at Salem, New Jersey. She is charged
with putting ratsbane in the porridge of Enos Seeley,
causing Ins death. We think she ought to be banged,
if guilty; and yet it looks liken pity to spoil such an el
egant piece of nature's workmanship. Could not her
punishment be commuted to kissing death instead of
strangulation, and our neighbot Du Salle would prob
ably volunteer as the executioner.—Pki/a. Mere.

Tax GIRARD COLLEGE.—.The Democratic Com
mittee of Superintendence of Philadelphia has prepa
red and published a brief statement showing the scan
dalous and shameful misapplication of the Girard Col
lege Fund, by the Whig Councils, aided by the advice
of Nicholas Biddle.
The fund originally consisted of two millions. Ac
cording to the first estimate, the college and its out
buildings were to cost 900,000, and were to be finished
in Ir years. It was confidently supposed that the annu
al income of the fund (102,000) would in that time pay
for erecting the College. Ten year have passed—two
of the out buildings are not even commenced, the prin
cipal building is not two-thirds finished, and the fund
is dwindled from two millions to $336,277 60. Of
course tae buildings can never be finished. on the plan
they have been commenced, and if they were, nothing
would remain to maintain 300 orphans, which number,
it Was the intention of the benevolent testator, should
always find refuge, support and instruction Within the
walls of the edifice be directed to be built. From pre
sent appearances the remainder of the fund will be
swallowed up in lawsuits, or lost by some sort of ras
cality. One thing is certain, the wishes of Girard will
never be carried out. The orphans who ho desired
might yearly go forth upon the sea of life, blessing his
memory, and made rich in learning by his bounty and
benevolence, will never realize the blessings he design
ed for th,m. We quostionif a m3re monstrous outrage
Was ever before committed in a county where laws aro
at all respected.

IGen. WM. H. Mettatorr has been nominated

they will do ;co we have not the shadow of a doubt.—

it would have brought ridicule on them both. Tam

I been managed, and he thought the watch well lost,

Wiritevir Tam's ideas were on the subject, Jenny
' felt conscious that it wa: her duty to replace the watch.
Accordiagly, next time she met her lover, she allowed
no time to elapse before she thus addressed him:
"Now, Tam, ye ken very well how I have demolish

We have only time to announce that the democrats
of Allegheny have achieved a glorious victory. Our
majority! The result is as we have all along predic

votes of the wbigs and antimasons, and some of the
whig candidates leave the poor blue noses far in the
fog. This is glory enough for one campaign. We
will give particulars hereafter. Where Is the antima

r We extract the following item, which will be
very interesting to wine-bibbere, from the Phila.
"Nearly all the winos drank in this country are base
counterfeits. Wine is now manufactured in Europe of
everything nasty, expressly for this market. Old boots
make a very "spicy" wine particularly. Vegetables of
various kinds are also employed, and it is said that in
Jersey2oobbls per annum are made without a particle
of grape juice. Defunct horses and cows are said to
work up into this sort of drink very easily! To alter
Phillips' verses, we may indeed say—
Hail mighty wine! and by this general name
We call each species, Sherry, Port, Madeira—
The names are various, but th' effect 'a the same

The Wiscasset Republican states that a strange fish
was discovered near Saguia on Tuesday of last week,
by Capt. Mclntire, of the schooner Adeline, of Yhips •
burgh. The fish is described as about thirty-five feet
long, his body was.tho size of a six ton bo it, and stri
ped like a tiger, his head was flat like a snake, his fin
like a boat's sail, his tail flat like a sail boat running
to a point.
Capt. Mclntire says ho sailed along side and pricked
the fish with a harpoon, and that he shoved his body
up against the vessel, and made her tremble as though
she had struck a rock. Not having sufficient gear, did
not harpoon him. When first discovered, he was a
mile and a hal fdistant, and thinking it was a boat made
for it.

In some of the country part; of Scotland, a custom
prevails of young men giving their watches in trust to
young women for whom they have declared their at
tachment. The watch is kept and carried in the boscm
of the fair one until the anxious couple are united in
the bonds of wedlock, when, as a matter of course, the
pledge of sincerity is given up to its original owner.—
This is imagined by the country lasses to be an infinite
ly better plan for securing the fidelity of sweethearts
than that of breaking a sixpence. A watch is a valua
ble and highly-prized article. It is worth at least a
couple of pounds, and the loss of that sum by an indi
vidual in an humble condition of life is a very serious
matter. Still, we believe there are cases in which the
proposed match is broken off, and the watch abandon
ed forever; though, doubtless, this is only in cases of
great fickleness, or when weighty reasons for desertion
The following laughable incident regarding a watch,
so intrusted, occurred a few years ago:
Jenny Symington, a well-favored, sprightly girl, in a
certain farm-house in Galloway, had been intrusted
with the watch of her sweetheart, Tarn Halliday, (a
neighboring shepherd,) which she carried, with the
most scrupulous car', in herhasom; but even the most
carefully-kept articles will sometimes disappear in
spite of all the precautions considered necessary to pre
serve them. Jenny, be it known, was esteemed a first
rate hand at preparing potatoes for the family supper;
none could excel her at serving them up, beaten and
mashed id the most tempting style. On one occasion,
in harvest, when the kitchen was crowded with a num
ber of shearers waiting for their evening meal, and
while Jenny was busy beating a 1112.1 s of potatoes.
what did the unlucky watch do but drop front her bo
som—chain, seals and all—into the pot among the po
tatoes! Jenny's head being turned away at the mo
ment, she knew nothing of the disaster, and therefore
continued t. beat on at her task. She certainly felt a
little surprised when she felt there was still a hard
tato to beat, notwithsta.oling her previous diligence;
but, thinking nothing of it, she continued to beat, occa
sionally giving the hard potato (alias the watch) a hard
thump with the end of the beetle. At length, she .ho't
she had fairly completed the business; and no, infusing
, a large jar of sweet milk into the mess, she stirred hall
up together, and then placed the vessel ready fhr the
attack of hungry lookers-on.
Behold, then, the pat— t round gaw so tripod, plant
ed in the middle of the floor. A circle was formed
round it in a trice. and hera f.ar horn the shearers be
gan to stretch and sttive. Many mouthfuls had not
been taken before certain queer looks were manifested.
"Dlel's in the tatties,' says one, "I think they've got
bane; in them."
"Bane;!" says another, "they're the canniest banes
ever I saw; they'rem tde o' broken glass and pieces o' I
brass; I'll sup nae mair o' them."
With that, another produced a silver watch-case,
all battered and useless, from hi; capacious horn spoon;
and a universal strike among the suppers ensued.—
It was clear that a watch had been beaten up with the
pat hoes; so the good wife had nothing for it but to or
der the disgraced pot out of the way, and place abasket
of oatmealcakus andmilk in its place.
What was poor Jenny's feelings during the strange
denouement ! On the first appearance of the frog=
meets of the watch, she siippedher hand toiler I sent,
and soon found how matters stood. She had the for
titude, however, to show no symptom; of surprise; and, '
although every one was wondering where the brokeit
watch had come from, she did not disclose her knowl—
edge of how it finind its WrtV in the pot. As it had het°.
nged to no one in their use, them aerials were not idea-
"My dear, Jenny." said the young man, takinm b her
kindly by the hand, "I beg you will say nothing about
this ridiculous affair. Ido not care a farthing fur the
loss of the watch, mair by token; I have gotten a rise
in my wages free the new laird, for I maun tell ye I'm
now appointed chief herd in the Ca's Hope. Howev
er, to take any payment from you, to rob you of your
hard-woo penny fee would be disgraceful. No, no, I
will take none of your waTes; but there is one thing I
will take, if you are willing, and which I hope will
make us both happy fur life."
"And what may that b?, Tam, now that ye're turned
grand head shepherd?"
"I will take," said he, "yourself; bet. mind, I do not
ask you as a recompense for a paltry watch. No; in
my eyes your worth is beyond all estimation. If you
will agreelo be mine, let it be done freely; but whether
you are willing to marry me or not, from this time
henceforth the watch is never more to bespoken of."
What followed may easily be imagined. Tam and
Jenny were married us soon as the plenishing for the
cottage at the Ca's Hope could be prepared; and at
the wedding the story oldie watch and the potato pot
was made the topic of much merry mirth arnlog the as
sembled company,.
The last time we visited Jenny's mAtage, we remind
ed her of the transaction. "Houts," said she, "that's
an old story now. The laird has been sae well pleased
w i' this gudeman, that he has gi'en him a present o'
that eight-day clock there. It cost eight pounds in
Jane Dockie's at theeast part o' Dumfries; and there's
no the like in all the parish."
MACREADY, the great actor, is 50 years of age!—
But then what are years?—the mere progress of
Time—wrinkle-forging, gray-hair enveloping, teeth-ex
tracting Time? Events, not years. mark ° the age of
man. Some men live a century in a score of years,
and some a month only in a century. A French phi
losopher once asserted that life consisted of butso ma
ny pulsations of the heart. He who revelled in excite
ment lived faster and died earliest, he who lived a
tranquil and quiet life, clung to earth the longest, acd
died late. There is math abstract truth in this fanci
ful theory. Either way Macreadv has lived almost an
eternity; but genius, like the fable Mexican spring,
still renders young and buoyant the spirit that care
and years have set their wrinkling palm upon in vain.

...v l rbe London Morning Chronicle of 19th September,
aeries from the Welshman the following amusing illua
triation of the strange condition of IVales:.---"At 1 o'clock
lett Monday morning (it was beautiful moonlight mid
t) about ei g hty ßebeccaite reformers of the law
rode up to the farm-house of his worship the Mayor or
ex-mayor of Kildweldy, who, like Sheridan and rase
great men, had attracted to his house a brace of those
barons of the law, conventionally known as bum-bailiffs.
These gentlemen were the honored guests of Mr. May
or, and ft was 'intended by the Sherif t h at lifer the
pleasures of the table and a good night's rest they
should further enjoy themselves by distraialog es itis
worship's live cattle, &c.—a species of sport which is
considered equal to shooting, and which beats '9)01-
' fighting hollow. Becca, however, spoiled the antici
pated sport, protested to the Mayor that they were
poachers, and insisted upon his turning them ont. The
Mayor thus addressed, thrust his head out of the win
dow and begged the Beccaites to be quiet. No; they
wouldn't. The Mayor remonstrated . , implored,the
'ruthless reformers at least to respect t he rights of "hos
pitality. Guests, he said, were in his house. 'Are
they welcome ones?' bawled Becca at the top of her
voice—'Are they welcome guests?" chornseed the noble
army of law reformers. The Mayor is a religious man
(a resident at Kidwelly, he had not learned the art of
lying from any cantinghypocrite at Llanelly,) nor could
not deny that the burn-bailiffs were rather unwelcome
guests; so be was silent. Becca immediately foreed
the outposts of the Mayor's castle, an entrance effect
ed, the dormitory was easily gained, and the barns
were in double quick time bundled out of bed. 'Down
upon your marrow-bones you beggardly bums,' author
itatively exclaimed Becca—instantly down went the
poor devils on their knees. 'Swear,' said Rebecca,
assuming a solemn air, 'swear that you will never again
'attempt to execute another distress warrant.' 'We
swear,' said the bums. 'Rise, then,' said Beets; 'come
down into the yard, mount this mare dog-horse-des
tined for the kennel, worth perhaps a pound) both of
ye, and be off.' The bailiffs of course did not require
to be told twice, and urged the skeleton hereciuto a
walk by blows and kicks, they moved of thanking God
for their providential escape." When we reflect upon
the dangers the incident exhibits, our laugh at the pranks
of Rebecca will speedily be displaced by the most se
rious considerations. The miserable condition of the
Welsh people has not been called into existence by re
cent occnrrences: it is the effect of long operating mu
ses, mis-government, absenteeism, partial legislation
and grievous monopolies: hence thepr and the
magnitude of the popular defiance of law. owe On the
15th September, a very large meeting of forme - Try - flirts
laboret s, co ll iers, and others, was h eld at Bryn-llyu
llech-Owen, on Mynyde Mawr, or the great mountain,
about 15 miles from Carmarthen. The morning was
wet and miserable, yet there could not have been less
than between 2000 and 3000 present, most of whom
were respectable farmers. The utmost harmony and
good feeling prevailed. They adopted an address to
the Queen, stating theirgrievauces and begging her to
redress them by the interposition of regal authority.—
Our readers have undoubtedly been astonished very of
ten to hear with what facility the English government
have been able to suppress popular combinations. The
veil has been lifted, however, by a gentleman of talent,
who corresponds with the Weekly Register. This eor
repondence attracted the attention of Mr. O'Connell,
at the Usual meeting of the Repeal Association on Mon
day, the 4th ult., when the liberator proceeded toread
the following extract from the letter of "one who has
himself whistled at the plough:"
"I saw something on Tara-hill which at first I was
trowillinz to believe, and which I did not wish to pub
'ish until I had inquired into it through letters to En
land. I now find that the parties whom I saw thet h,
. and whose conduct attracted my attention, users redlly
what I rhapected them to be. Two or three of thee??
were Irishmen, known in London, the others women
glish. lam not at liberty to say much more, at leest
until next week; but I would warn you, and the Irish
people through you, to be cautious beyond all fanner
caution. That some hundreds of men, cr may bC their
sands, did not get drunk, did not fall out and fight; and
cause general riot on Tara-hill, to which the military
and armed police would soon have beet shrnmoued,
was nut the fault of the persons allticleci to, nor the
fault of those who paid them to come =who hair also
paid the same men and some others to follow Mr. Cob
den from town to town in England, from Norwich
London, from Loudon to Nlaidstone, from Maidstone
to Winchester, and sevevral other places, to get up a
riot, and upset his anti-corn law meetings."
Mr. O'Connell said he believed the writer incapiblii
of stating that which was untrue—
He says that he knows these persons were hired.--:
By whom? We know froai this gentleman who the
people are who hired , Can it be supposed diey
were hired by the British Ministry, or by seine one in
the confidence of the police? Could there be any thing
m fr.? horrible than to think that any go :erirmant should
get up a riot fur the sake of massacre and glitighter?
Now, people can sae how reform has been Stopped in
England by the Llhartists, the bulk of that party having
been used by other politicians for thd purpose of re
pressing public opinion. If this system were to be
perniitted=if they were to. have ciss - assins sent ov e r
her, from England for the puilaise of producing rio t,
and bringing about Massacre laud murder, there would
scion be an end to all liberty in Ireland. The man who
could fl sigma! act of that kind is a wretch that ought
to be (1171.W11 to the scaffold. (Cheers.) If this tort
duct were traced to the enemies ache Irish people, rind
their undoubted right to ask for legal privileges, was
put down by the strong arm of power, it would be their
duty to consider what C.J.JititUtl3:lll resources were
still left to them.
svlvanian has the following report of the state of the
Philadelphia market:—
"Cotton is firm and fuir sales have been realized
since our last report. Coffee has declined a shade;
sales moderate and market well supplied. Flour seems
to be rather on the advance; the sales this week have
not decreased the stock, in the least. The stock on
hand at present is heavy. In Glair) the prices appear
to be very tinsel tied. There seems to be a large amount
of very inferior southern grain in the market. Molas
ses is dull, and prices seem to be rather declining.—
Lead is in so demand, and the price remains steady.
Sugars are not in much demand, the prices have gone
down about quarter of a cent fur New Orleans and
Trinidad. Wood and Coal remain at steady prices;
the retail demand is increasing. The stock of coal on
hand at present, though not heavy, is ample enough for
a much heavier demand than is manifested at present.
