Tlic Old Man.
My Grandire is an old, old man,
Tile's wheels move dull and alow,
His cheeks arv wan and wrinkled deep,
Mi hair is white as snow;
Hi eye is dimmed ef all its fire,
His heart of all its glee,
And nought does hn the live lony day,
But moan most piteou-ly.
Thoy say, he's in his dotage now,
But I rcmemliet well,
When helo cousin Tom and me
Would pleasant stories toll :
And as we clambered up hi knee,
He'd lay his pipe awuv,
And, by the hour, live o cr again
Scenes of hi caily day.
One story, 'twas our youthful pride,
We begged he'd Ml it still;
How he with Putnam, side by side,
Fought stout at Bunker's Hdl ;
The wound he got, the blow he gave.
The cartridge boi and can,
Relics still hang ng by the wall
And how the lir.tinh ran.
Grave was his ftce, but oftentiine
No fun hi features lacked,
His social glaet. he dearly loved,
And pteasent j..kee he cracked ;
He held the fashion of his time,
Three conier'd bat and queu,
BUck breeches faster, ed at the knee.
And buckles on hi shoe.
When sabbath brought it heavenly eslm,
Wi'h ettiJ and s.ili mn air,
Leaning upon hit oik n stair,
He .ought the house of prayer;"
Among the elders there he asto,
All holy reverend mi-n,
Devout he listened lo the word,
Devoutly said. amen.
'Ti said, life's de dings ever tend
To petrify the heart,
As dew-drops from the Hparry cave
New prox-rt e imparl :
But strength was in thst o'd man's soul,
Which chHiige could ne'er repress,
And const ncy which soared above
Tbe chill of time's caress.
The wicked ho aye etem!y chid,
But to th- suffering poor
Gave kindly word, and liberal aid,
When crowding at his door :
His deeds were like the dew ol life,
Which blest bo'h old and young,
Hi love, a precious talisman
To heart wi h anguish wrung.
But days have gano and years have flew,
Come hat thitt old man't night,
His eye lack lustre in their gl-nm,
Hi .-cntte.ed locks are white ;
Bo let it be; he aouglit no trust,
No honors placed him high.
Unknown he ever prayed to his,
And unrcmembtretl die.

but Ihe great modern dem.icrary, never had a more
faithful or more distinguished rcprecntntie than
Jefferson. A warm friend ot numanny, iiorrij,
and science; trusting in their goodness as well as
their rights; deeply touched by the injustice with
which the mas of mankind have been treaieo, ani
the suffering th. y endure, and incessantly eugnged,
with an admirable discntcrestedness, in remedying
ihem or meventing their recurrence; acceplins
power as a dsngciou. necessity, alm. st as one evil
opposed to another, and exerting himself not merv

play, all personal splendor, as a tendency to esur
petion; of a temper open, kind, indulgunt, though
ready to take up prejudices agninst, aud feel irrita

"Washington did well to withdraw fr. public
business. He had entered upon it at one of tute
momenta, at once difficult and favorable, when ns-
tiona, euirounded by perils, summon all their virtu
and all their widoaa to surmount thi ro. He wss
admirably suited to this losition. He held tho
sentiment and opinious of his age without nlavUh-

interests, it unnners, insiired him with neither
hatred nor regret His thoughts ad bis ambition
did not impatiently reach forward into tho future.
The society, in the midst of which he lived, suiied
his tastee and hi judgment. He had confid. nee
in ita principle sud its deliny ; but a confidence
enlightened and quuliCed by un accurate instiuclive
perception of the eternal principles of social order,
He served it with bcarlinee an J indejrendencc.
with that eombinHtien of faith aud foar which ia

Gud. On this areounl, esecislly, be was qualified
to gotrn it; for democracy requires two things for
iU tranquility aud its success; it must feel ilstlf to
be truled and yet restriiined. and mustbrtieoe alike
in the genuine devotidnes and the moral supeno-
rity of it leaders. On these condition alone can
it govern itself while in a process of developement,
and hope to lake a place among the durable and
glorious form of human society. It is the honor
of the American people lo have, at this period, un
der-lood and accepted these condition-. It i the
glory of Washington to have been their interpreter
and instrument.
-He did the two greatest thing which, in poli
tics, man can have the privilege af attempting. He
maintained by peace, that ind"penience of his
counlry, which he had acquired by war. He found
ed a fri-e government, in the name of the prmci-
state. Tt was here that hi talent showed most
conspicuous. Beset by frea without, and enemies
within, the country presented to the eye of the pa
triot a most gloomy prospect. Unaided or but par
tially aided by the General Government, we were
called upon lo provide the mean to lopel the in

Tompkins was then at the head of this state; and

Tho Tragedy in the WildcrncM.

ter, of the melancholy catastrophe that ended the
mortal caieer of Mr. 8impson, of the Hudson's Bay
Company, on hi return from hi Arctic journey of

it must be entirely dispelled by the subjoined st3t
ment which wa received yesterday by the presi

from one of tho agents of th it company at St. Louis,
ind which may be considered olticial.

The fullowing sketches of the characters of
Washington, Hamilton and Jeff rson, are ftom the
fien of M. Gtibot. a French author of great cele
brity, and one of the mo.t eminent statesmen of
the age. The characters of JeflVrstm and Hamil

fedt ral parties, are briefly but cy iistinctly deli
neated. We have copied the extract from the
Democratic Review," an able periodical publish
monthly at Washington, in which tho editor re

in the Revolution of the United States of Ante

men, who have bet uudiotood the vital principles
