From the Baltimore Ocean.
Tt was a favorite maxim of Lord Dyron, taken
from one of the classics, that
"Whom the Ooda love die young."
I cannot be a favorite with the Gods, for I had a 1
fair chance of being killed on Friday afternoon last,
while riding with Mr. Dowdcn, a gentleman who
reside in Washington city. The horse was frigh
tenened, ran, and came in Market fctreet flying "like
a etreak of lightening." Mr. tWden jumped out,
and left me to run the race of the famoua John
Qdpin alone, and I did run it in most exquisite
style. I ahall now aing the race which I ran with
Denth, and the gentle reader will perceive that I got
ahead of Otto Motty, and outgcnerclled even Death
John Gilpin, Junior.
Good citizen of Baltimore,
Pray liaten to my ditty ;
I aing the race John Gilpin run,
Just inside of the city.
Musing along the rugged road.
Did John in silence ride ;
Whrn lo ! he did look out and aaw
Death trotting by hia aide.
Halloo ! my friend, let me get in,
Death aaid with language civil.
His finger on hia nose, John aigli'J
I'd see you lo the devil.
You've tried to suck me in before,
At many a time and place ;
I date you now with me to run,
And dare you to your face.
Death, on hia pale horse, shook hi bone,
And gave a ghastly grin;
I'll run a race wilh you, he cried,
And thought he'd suck John in.
If in this matter I should lose.
And you should win, I say,
I ho, sir, a a gentleman.
You'll take me for the pay.
John put bis finger to hi nose,
Hia mouth with quids well crsoi'd,
You cannot take me in, he cried,
If you do, I'll bed n'd.
Away went Gilpin down the hill,
Mo race was e'er ao hard ;
Away, on hie pale horse, went death,
'1 he buggy aud the Hard.
Away hia hat Sew out behind,
His papers aM wne gone ;
Says Death, I'll catch you if you fill,
I tkauk you, sir, eaid luhn.
The people alt ran out to see,
For toon ttie news waa spread ;
And every ene cried out hurrah t
For Grtptu was ahead.
How far, ir, do you rule to day 1
"lVy one and all did cry ;
Joha chew'd hia quid, and calmly said
You know a well aa I.
The women they pult'd off their caps,
The ragged children ran,
And acream'd a loud aa they cauld bawl,
To aee ao strange a man.
Away, away went Gilpin, still,
As swiftly as the wind :
And tho' Dealt) whip'd and rpur'd hishoriie,
lie lett nun far bemud.
A creditor, upon the road,
Held out hi hand for pay ;
8aid John I'm aony I can't atop
To talk with you to day.
A lady from her window waved
Her 'kerchief m hia view ;
I'm sorry you can't call, she cried,
Said John 1'rn sorry loo.
Still onward in the race he went,
The horse like lightning flew,
The dogs howl'd out a wild hurrah I
Cows low'd, and cat did mew.
When at the end his steed did stop,
Twa in a woful plight;
The buggy broke, and In ! he look'd,
And death was out of sight.
Well, well, said death, you necd'nt fear
In lite, a single evil ;
I don't slid, John, for I can beat
Death, doctor, and the devil.
Good citizens, when next be ride,
I'll let you know the place ;
That you may all go out to see
John Gilpin run a race.
A Hoosier lover of fourteen vents bis "diap

Farewell, dear girl, farewell, farewell,
I never ahall love another ;
In peace and comfort yon may dwell,
And I'll go home to mother.

aaid I. "It l a I'.wtghtful evening, and the last, too,

She made no reply, but placing her hand in mine
permitted me to seat her in the boat. A few
strokes of the oar and we gained the centre of the
river. The dwelling of the Miese H waa
situated a short distance below, and yielding our.
selves to the current, we floated slowly down.
Report had assigned to Mary W the un
enviable reputation of a heartier coquette. The
gossip would recount her almost numberless con
qests, especially among the student of the neigh
boring College. Many fascinated undergradu
ate had thought mote of her than of his studies, and
received for hi trouble a coquette's smiles and bis
tutor's frowns. Mary was indeed beautiful, and
full of that graceful light-heartedness, which more
than even beauty bewitches one, but which ia so of
ten, alas ! found united with heartless coquettery.
At first I wasted to believe that what seemed the
general opinion was true. But I soon thought o
therwiae. I could not but believe that a form so
lovely enshrined a heart a heart, too, susceptiblo
of the purest and holieet pasaions that mortals
know. My claaamate however, only smiled and
ahook their head at what they called my infatuation
But I had noted her action for oine time close
ly, and in a measure unobserved. The moic I saw
the more I wa convinced that Mary had yet to love,
and that when she did, it would be with a fervor of
which few are capable. Meantime our slight ac
quaintance gradually became intimacy, and it waa
said by the village gossips that I would soon be ad
ded to the catalogue oi her victims. Thus the
time parsed by until the period for my departure
had arrived, and on leaving my room on the last
evening of my atay, I determined to know if she
waa the hearlleas being so generally considered, or
if she waa capable of loving and being loved.
For once her usual vivacity had deserted her, and
our walk on thia evening was, unlike the many
which preceeded it, alinoat a silent one.

her home, when ahe hesitatingly inquired
"May I atk you a question 1"
"Yes, two if you wish," I replied, aomewhat

"A cousin of mine, and a pretty one too.

We had now reached tho grounds enclosing her
father'a residence. Instead of taking the path di
reel to the bouse, we had, unobaerved by me, taken
one leading to a small arbor, where we had fie

I rfcired to the pages which I haJ been reading

John Randolph of Roanoke.
The following description of this remarkable per
son we find In the National Intelligencer:
His long thin legs, about as thick as a strong
walking cane, and of much such ahape, were en
cased in a pair of light small clothe.', o tight that
they seemed part and parcel of the wearer. II md
some while Blockings were fastened with great
lidinoas at the knee by a email gold buckle, and o
ver them, coming about half way up the calf, were
a pair of what, I believe, are called hose, coarse
and country knit. He wore shoe ; they were old
fashioned, and fastened also with buckle huge
ones, lie trod like an inuian, witnoui turning nia
loea out, but plunking them down straight ahead.
It waa the fashion in those day a to wear a fan-tailed
coat, with a small collar, and bultona Tar apart lie
hind, and few on the breaat. Mr. Randolph'
were the reverse of all this, and, instead of hi coat
being fan-tailed it waa what we believe the knight
of the needle call swallow-tailed ; the collar was
immensely large, the button behind were in kiss
ing proximity, and they sat together as close on the
breast of the garment as the feaater at a crowded
public festival. His waist was remarkably elender ;
ao slender, that, a be stood wilh his arms akimbo,
he could eatily, aa I thought, with his long bony
fingers, have spanned it. Around him hi coal,
which waa very tight, wa held together by one
button, and, in consequence, an inch or more of
1aie, to which it wa attached, waa perceptible
where it waa pulled through the eloth.
About hi neck he wore a large white cravat, in
which hia chin wa occasionally buried as he
moved his head in conversation ; no shirt collar
was perceptible ; every other person seemed to pride
himaelf on the aizo of his, a they were then worn
large. Mr. Randolph's complexion waa precisely
that of a mummy, withered, saffron, dry and blood-
lens ; yet you could not have placed a pin' point
on hi face without you would have touched a wrin
kle ; hia lip were thin, compresaed and colorless ;
(he chin, beVdlea as a boy', was broad for the
sze of his face, which was aruall ; his nose was
strait, with nothing rematkablo in it, except perhaps
il wa too short. He wore a fur cap, which he took
off, standing a few momenta uncovered. I observed
that his head wa quite mall, a characteristic
hieh is said to have matked many men of talent,
Byron and Chief Justice Mar.ha'.l for inatance

distinguished at the bar, on the bench, and in tho
United State Senate, and whom I have heard no
less a judge and possecsor of talent than Mr. Ham
mond of the Gaze'te, say, was the clearest and
most impressive speaker he ever heard, hat also a
very small head. Mr. Randolph'a hair wa rem irka
bly Cue fine as an infant's, and thin. It was very
long, and wa parted with great care on the top of
kis hesd, and waa lied behind with a hit of blaik
ribband about three inche fiom his neck ; the
whole of it formed a queue not thicker than the lit
tle finger of a delicate gi 1. His forehead was low,
but no bumpology about it ; but hi eye, though
sunken, waa moat brilliant and startling in its

The editor of the Frederick MJ. Examiner, al
luding lo the subject of the great number of barna
struck by lightning thia season, Bays "the great
number of barns that are Cied by lightning after
every harvest, should admonish farmer of the ex
pediency of having conductors attached 10 their
barn. The fermentation produced in both hay
and grain after being stored, senda up a column of
steam, which furniahe an excvlb-nt conductor ofe
leetricity, and for the want of a suitable conductor
to carry it harmlessly into the ground we have eve
ry jaar some half doirn cases to record of the burn
ing of barns, with all the pioJuet of the previous

cure information that could only be ob

its importance. 1 lis own danger was
of inferior consideration. The appoint

the Indian. He stepped behind the root
of a tree, and wailed until he could
shoot the Indian without danger to the

The effect of lime in decomposing
vegetable matter is weil known.
Near the last of "fhe 8th month, (Au
gust,) fifty bushels of lime to the acre
were spread over a clover Field almost
run out, trom which a tirst crop ol grass
had been taken at the usual time. The
second crop grew tolerable well, atxl
was ploughed down with the lime, pre
paratory to seeding with winter grain.
M the interval ot lour or hv'e vficka
the ground was crossed ploughed, and
the vegetable mass of grass, weeds and
roots, found to be almost pulverized,
and incorporated with the soil.
Tt is customary with many farmers
in this vicinity, to apply a handful of
ground plaster to each hill of Indian
corn, after it appears a few inches a
bove ground. A small portion of tho
corn field thus treated, was last spring
reserved lor an 'experiment, with the
same quantity of powdered or fine lime,
applied in like manner.
The result has been in favor of tho
lime, both the stock and ear of the corn,
being much superior to the average
production oT the field. Farmer't

A Terrible Deed
In illustrating the desperate condition
to w hich the lower classes in England
arc reduced through grinding poverty,
the London correspondent of the Bos
ton Post relates tho following occur
rence, the bare perusal of which makes
the blood run cold ; he snys, however,
that it is too well authenticated to be
"It appears that there arc "Philan-
thropic Burial Societies, in many towns
in England, which pay certain sums
to members fir the funeral expenses of
a deceased child. One of the rules of
"The Stockport Burial Society" is that
each member shall pay a penny per
week, and at the end of seventeen
weeks' subscription become full mem
bers. If a child after that period dies.
the parents are entitled to the sum of
three pounds and twelve shillings ; and
deducting one shilling and sixpence for
the collector's fee, and two shillings
" or liquor," the sum of three pounds

neral expenses of the child. At the
Chester Assizes, two married couples,
whose average ages were only twenty
six, were indicted. Their names wero
Sandys and one couple were charged
with having ndminstered arsenic to the
child, by which they murdered it, and
the others were charged w ith being ac
cessories to the crimo boforo and
after the fact. The deceased, with
whose murder they were accused, was
thus awfully killed for the diabolical
purpose t.f obtaining the sum of throa
itoiinds t:ight and sixpence from thu
