A few years siuce, tlierc appeared anon
ymously a short pocui, uiouruing in moat
pathetic but vivid language the downfall
of political character of oua uf moat migh

'So fallen ! so lost ! the light withdrawn
Which once he wore.
The dory from his gray hairs gone
For ever more !
'All el.--c is gone from those great eyes
The soul hath tie J,
When Truth is lost, when Honor d;es,
The man is dead !"
No name was mentioned, but every in
telligent p-.rson exclaimed, witb a sigh,
"That's 'tnsTKit, painted ly Whittier '."
Every liuc pointed out Lis tLen recent de

A gentleman bands us tbe following
lines not so sombre in hue by a consid

we leave our readers to guess tcho they

The pathetic lamentations of a "A'urMfrtt man

O how I longed to see
That bless'd "fraternal"' sight,
Two States, one slave, one tree.
One darkness and one light
Together, side ly side,
Into the Union come.
And there in love abide.
Like children in their home!
But hang the churlish North !
They want buth to be free ;
And what is freedom worth
To poor old Buck or me 1
When Slavery's reign is o'er,
And every man is free.
The South will need no more
To use old Buck or me.
When locomotives run
Along new rail-road tracks.
Of course we lose the fun
Of donkeys and their packs.
And when the slave-power dies,
Alas! and die it must.
Then each poor doughface lies
Dishonored in the du !
For the Lewisbur- Chronicle.
A correspondent who has on several occa
sions, heard the word profile, pronounced as
ifspeeled projeel, begins to fear that in this
progressive age, we shall soon be obliged to
call a woodpile, a tvoodjieel. Wheeling Intel
ligeneer. And why not? And why slop at a
awoodpeel? Let us "go ahead." Let
the blacksmith call his file a feel; and tbe
mother call her infant's smile, a smixl;
and let stile, bo called s'eel ; and go on,
and instead of reptile, futile, servile, tex
tile, crocodile, imbecile, infantile, defile,
&c., let us say rcpteel, futeel, serveel, t ex
tec, crocodcel, imbeceel, iufanteel, defcel,
&c.! And why not "progress," with sat
urnine, feminine, opine, Buperfine, confide,
backslide, decide, itc., and say saturncen,
fcniiueen, opecn, supcrfecn, confeed, baek
sleed, deceed, &e. How sweet !
These enquiries of a funny fiiend at
oar elbow, we leave with soma of our in
genious correspondents to answer. Th.
arbitraryness and irregularity of the modes
of spelling and pronouncing words, is a
great evil in the English language. Every
word should be spelled as pronounced (or
pronounced as spelled) a great reform,
which few if any of us will ever see.

Oerrofipondence of the LewUburg ChronU-le 1
1'uilaoa., April 20, 1858.
The very interesting series of public
religious meetings, which began in Jayne's
Hall, many weeks ago, and were afterward
removed to Sansom St. Baptist Church,
Lave been again removed to the Hall, and
the attendance is as large as ever, and the
intcrc.t quite as great. For a week past,
it has been greatly increased by the death
of Rev. Dudley A. Tyng, who was ono of
the prominent men at those meetings; who
was indeed a prominent man everywhere
in all that related to staunch piety and the
supremacy of his Master's kingdom. The
dispensation which bas carried him off is
one of those wonderful providences which
all taunt bow to as an act of a wise and
overruling God, but which our shortened
vision can not fathom.
Mr. Tjtg, who is represented by all who
knew him as a man of sterling quality,
ww first brought prominently before the
roblic because he dared to preach againt I
national sins and include slavery in the
category; knowing at the samo time that
he had iu his congregation many whoso
interests were closely connected with tbe
South, and indeed whoso whole estates lay
in a region uufit for themselves to inhabit,
but which they were in duty bound to up
hold even at the expense of the peace,
unity aud purity of the church. Mr. Tyng
was ou that occasion requested to leave on
the pica that the church of Epiphany had
nothing to do with national sins, and a
gentleman from the "infected district"
i .:.!. ... iqata Mmuon in his

showed conclusively, that slavery was tho

Mr. Tyng, who was an active Christian,
at onco organized a new congregation in
a public hall, where he has been gaining
strength aud adding to his influence ever
since. When the present remarkable re
vival took place, he was among the first of
its supporter.", and while he was spared
battled uiaufully, and fell in the harness ;
for he was deeply interested to the last in
the great work.
1'erhaps, since the first organization
of tho l'.tformed Church, there has not
been such a socue enacted as that at Mr.
Tyng's funeral obsequies, and on one or
two occasions at the hall of prayer. The
millennium seemed for the moment to have
just begun, and all iM promised peace to
have descended to tbe earth. The church
for tho moment duffed her mitre and took
her seat iu happy communion with Uur-""'
and Presbyterian, and Dutch Reformed
and Covcuauter her old and deadliest foe
and Methodist aud any other " dissen

1 have just returned from one of tho
Jayne's llall meetings, and such a scene
is worth a visit to the city from a greater
distance than Lewisburg. Mingled in one
brotherhood on the spacious stand were
ministers of almost every denomination.
From a grand chorus of not less than two
thousand voices, was going up, at the mo
ment I entered, the touching hymn,
"Come Holy Sj-liit, Heavenly dove,"
and tbe effect you can possibly imagine, I
But if tbe exercises were interesting and
highly Christian, the audience was certain
Iv interesting and curious. The merobant
from the great thoroughfares of mammon
leaving his countinghouse (for the hour)
and bis cares behind him, was there, deeply
attentive and apparently deeply concerned.
His clerk and his porter were there also,
mingling for once in worship with their
employer, where no door plates and locks
bar intruders from cushioned pews, and
send strangers and poor folks to the gal
lery. The policeman's star was also visi
ble among the crowd, and the man about
town, "bearded like the pard" and whose
presence was never seen in a church,
seemed among the most attentive of lis
teners. Tbe prayers possessed all the fervor of
feeling, earnestness of appeal, belonging to
: warm hearted, true piety, without any of
tbe enthusiasm and excitement generally
consequent on revival seasons, and tbe
addresses, short and to the point, were of
tbe same class, and seemed to tell on the
Rut this state of affairs is Dot at all
confined to cne spot. In all the churches,
there are many enquiring "the way." The
Sabbath Schools aro sending out their
young recruits by hundreds, and the poor,
destitute wanderers, are forgetting their
sorrows and crowding to the cross, like the
pilgrims to the ford of Jordan.
Tbe writer has been employed in a Mis
sion Sabbath School for ten years past,
and only now is he, with bis fellow teach
ers, beginning to reap the fruits of their
labors, which, many a time and oft forget
ting tho promises, they bad looked upon
as thrown away. It would do you good
to see a few of us packed into a little stif
ling, and almost unfurnished room,in some
one of the houses of our people, surround
ed by a crowd of most unsavory sinners
who arc just beginning to feel that they
have souls, and that we have really been
in earnest all these long years, when wc
have tried to tell them and their children
that we loved them, and were laboring for
their good. Their gratitude is a reward
for any amount of labor.
There are districts in our city, as much
in want of faithful missionary effort3,as in
China or Hindoostan, and as legitimate a
field. They aro reached only by the Sab
bath school teacher, and then only through
the medium of their children. I myself
have assisted and lectured at evening con
versational meetings, when we had to em
ploy a police force, both inside and out of
tbe building to preserve the peace, and
protect ourselves. It is changed, now,
and when we walk the district, every one
is ambitious of a recognition, save tbe poor
blinded Romanist, and even some of these
wink at the fact of their children attending
our Sabbath 6chool.
But I have written too much on a sub
ject which though very dear to me. is bat
a local one,and may not iuterest generally

HOST APPOSITE COHPARISON.
The new U. S. Senator from Wiscon
sin, Judge Dooi.itti.e, made a most tell
ing speech against the juggle by which it
is hoped to entrap Kansas into voting for
a Slave Constitution, iu tbe course of
which the following apt parallel was
The point we aro now considering, is
simply whether tho proposition of the
committee of conference docs of itself
present any improper inducement to bring
Kansas into the Confederacy under the
Lccompton constitution ; and if she refu
ses to noma in, doe it impose upon, her
any improper penalties anything by way
of punishment 1 Is Kansas left perfectly
free to make her own choice in this mat
ter ? Sir, it is very easy to illustrate this
by resuming onco moro the analogy. Im
agine the case of a parent with large pos
sessions,having a large family of highly ed
ucated and accomplished daughters. As
they grow up and arrive at the age of ma
turity and marriage ability, one after an
other they are settled and established in
life, and a portion of bis vast inheritance
is set off to them. A younger daughter,
not yet arrived at the age of perfect matu
rity, hardly marriageable as yet, at that
tender and interesting period when the
etrtleoanttss of ktULooft arida tn tkn hartna
of womanhood, is sought in marriago by
two rival suitors ; the parent's consent is
asked. One presents himself, an intelli
gent, frank, honest, noble youth, who has
wrought out his own fortunes by bis own
strong hands; and he has sought, receiv
ed, and secured her affections. Another
presents himself who claims to be of noble
blood to belong to the firat families of
the land, too proud to labor himself, but
ever willing to live upon tbe labors of oth
ers like too many, greedy of other's
goods and prodigal of bis own and he
seeks her hand in marriage also. He
plies every art, attempting sometimes by
force and sometimes by fraud to obtain
her consent. She rejects his suit again
and again. Her elder sisters takes a deep
interest and an active part in tho contro
versy, are about equally divided, and tho
result even threatens to sunder their fam
ily relations. She comes to her parent
for adviee. She fully avows her affection
for the one, and her detestation for tho
other; and what does ho propose? He
says to her, "my daughtor, if you will
marry this man of family and pretensions
I will give you houses and lands ; I will
endow you with a largo and independent
fortune, as I have all your sisters that
have settled beforo you ; I will establish
you at once in a high rank in society ; you
shall have all tbe deference and consider
ation which grow out of that establish
ment, on a footing of perfect equality
witb your elder sisters ; but if you refuso
to marry him, you shall not marry at all,
so long as I live, or at all events so long
as I keep you under my coutrol; and un
til you arrive at the full age of majority
you shall not marry any other; and
though you do not choose to marry him,
you shall continue to associate with bim
and receive his attentions."
Mr. President, is that leaving bcr per
fectly free to follow the dictates of her
own heart, to make her own selection, or
is that what you call parental intervention?
Is it leaving her perfectly free, or is it
endeavoring to force her choice, to say to
her in plain English, "if you will marry
this suitor, you are old enough to marry
now ; but if you desire to marry anybody
else, you are not old enough to marry at
all ; if you will marry this ono, you shall
have houses and land ; you shall bo en
dowed richly, as all your sisters have
been endowed beforo you ; but if you will
not marry him, you shall marry no other
for an indefinite length of time, and you
may have to pass that certain age which
no female desires to pass unmarried ; and
whether vou liko him or dislike him, you
shall continue to associate with him T"
I ask you if this is leaving her per fee t
Iv free in her choice to chooso her own
domestic institutions, and to form and reg-
ulato tbem in her own way 7 or is it pa
rental intervention to overcome her free
will, to tempt her, to smother and crucify
her nft-ctions, and to j'Mn in alliance witb
cb? wb.53, of loving, eIio deleeta .
A Bull-Backing Adventure.
George W. Harris, a Tennessee Ex
Editor and l'ost Master, is publishing a
series of humorous sketches, in tho name
of "Sut Lovengood" a pure type of the
loafing, iguoraut, drinking, chewing, hunt
ing, lary, yet shrewd "poor white trash" of
that region. These sketches are very
coarse, and many of them would be pro
nounced unfit for print in the North, hut
they seem to be well adapted to the South
ern taste. Iu truth, judging from those
most popular Southern authors David
Crocket, "Georgia Scenes," Major Jones
of I'inevillc, aud our "Sut" chaste aud
delicate humor are not among the "do
mestic institutions" or native literature in
that quarter, while broad, practical, rough
fuu" cau havo no restraints upon it, and
the more gross tbe better. The annexed
specimen is the most readable, truth-like,
and laugablo of the "yarns" retailed by
"Sut" to his friend "George."
I bad cot about a fox squirrill skin full

Seville's soft luiurious clime
Yields the orange and the lime.
And the cool retreshing shade
By the clustering branches made
Seems to hold the perfumed air
Asa willing captive there.
Ceylon, isle of spire and halm.
Boasts her groves of stately palm ;
W here the sunbeams lingering rest.
As they loved that land the besij
W here ihe birds amid ihe bowers
Are like gorgeous winged flowers.
In thy vales, fair, sunny France.
1'easants love the vintage dance;
W hen the vines their clusiers yield,
Sonis are heard from every field;
All the land in festal dress,
Overllows wilh happiness.
But of all the precious stores
Nature's bounteous hand outpours
O'er each hill, and vale, and plain,
Fluwer, fruit, or waving grain,
Deatest to the Northern born
Stands the graceful Indian Corn.
When it springs the verdant leaf.
Bursts the seed's enclosing sheaih,
Or, in Summer's glowing light.
The feathery tassel precis thesight,
firace and beauty still adorn
Every change ol Indian Corn.
When the autumn's gorgeous dyes
Hcflect ihejiues of sunset skies
O'er the glowing harvest plain,
There the eais of clustered grain.
In the yellow sheath enrolled,
Seem tike topaz set in gold.
Progress of the Nullifiers.
Incidents in the life of Col. Bknto.n,
now brought prominently to mind by the
death of that venerable statesman, reveal
so pointedly certain political changes in
, the country as to deserve a passing now.
j Col. Bcuton was all bis life a national
1 man, and opposed to eeotionalu-m, cither
at the North or South. He was the main-
j of Van Buren in 1843, be was the leader
of the Democrats, and Calhoun of a fac -
! tion. But that was the turning point;

Dress and Health.
Tbe glowing color and freshness of En
glish female beauty has always excited tbo
gratifying comments of Americans who
have visited tbe Albion isle. Tbe striking
contrast between the organization of Amer
ican women and that of their trans Atlan
tic cousins is entirely due to tbe relative
care or neglect of physical training, tho
indifference or inattention to physical edu
cation, which b so universal a deficiency
in personal strength and beauty. With
all our republican defiance of restraint and
formality, we practically ignore, as a na
tion, the very advantages which should
enure to us from our independent position.
If we were actually bcyonJ the opinion cf
the world, public sentiment would never
tolerate the rearing of females to remain
all their lives animal hot-house plants.
The active in-door exercise, the constant
riding and walking in tbe open air, and
in all weathers, and above all, the robust
style of costume which English girls culti
vate, tend to make a totally different race
of beings from what we see here. Tho
end of female education appears to be, at
least in our large cities, the making of
dolls and playthings, rather than active,
stirring, energetio women, such as formed1
tbe womanly element of tbe Puritan
! times and the fighting days of the Revo
The old home-spnn clothes and home
dressed shoes bavo given way to crinolina
aud gaiters. Even in ordinary traveling
and every day promenade, our American
ladies affect a luxury of costume which the
Queen of England would not assume out
side of her palaco drawing-room. English
women take life practically, as a life to
work and enjoy, and they utterly discard
fashion where personal health or comfort
, is concerned. Many of our fashionable
j ladies here dress as if they were never to
go out except to ireaa on carpets oi veivei.
