As die the eml'ers on liie hearili.
Ami o'er ihe fl.inr ihe shl" fall.
And creeps ihe chirping cricket forth.
And licks the death watch on the wall
I see a f"nn on yunJer chair.
That srows beneath the waning light
There are the wan, sad features there
Tne pallid brow, and locks of white !
My father ! when they laid thee down.
And heaped the clay upon thy breast,
And left thee sleeping all alone,
L'pon thy narrow couch of rest,
I know not why 1 could not wepp
The s.Miiliinj drops refused to roll j
And oh! that ericf is wild and deep
Which settles tearless on the soul!
But when I saw thy vacant chair
Thine idle hat upon the wall
Thv book the penciled passage, where
Thine eves had rested, last of all ;
The trees beneaih whose friendly shade
Thy trembling feet had wandered forth
The very prints those feet had made.
When last they feebly trod the earth
And thought, while countless ages fled.
Thy vacant seat would vacant stand,
Unworn thy hat, thy book unread,
Kflaced thy footsteps from the sand.
And widowed, in this cheerless world.
The heart that srave its love to Ihee
Torn, like a vine, wli"se tendrils curled
More closely 'round the falling tree !
Oh ! father, then for her and thee.
Gushed madly fonh the scorching tears,
And oft, and long, and bitterly.
Those tears have gushed in later years ;
For, as the world grows cold around.
And things take on their real hue,
'Tis sad to learn that love is found
Alone above the stars with you.

A meeting was recently held in Phila
delphia, by those interested to revive tb
old exploded system " "protection" a
means of supporting the government by a
tax upon the working classes, which at
the same time pays a bounty to capital
and a number of politicians rehashed the
old speeches on that subject with as much
apparent interest as. though they were: ut
tering something new. "Hard times"
always occasion schemes of detpe.rate epec
vlation aud public robbery. Hut a scheme
that can be backed up with so much mo
ney is always dangerous. If the half
starved pnpulation ff Massachusetts can
not live upon rpiuning cotton and aboli
tion homilies, let them emigrate to the
West, or to Ireland, and go to work and
raise grain, or potatoes. That is the true
remedy for "hard times," and the best
"protection" that can he afforded. j
The above is from the Clinton A mo- I
ctat of the 2")th June a paper owned by
Mr Dicficubacli, Dp. Sec. of the Com
monwealth, and edited by Mr. Orth, re
cently appointed Notary Public at Lock
Haven by Gov. Packer. They indicate no
relaxing of the policy which has enriched
the manufacturers and capitalists of the
Old World, and given employment there
for laborers, while it has robbed thousands
of our manufacturers and capitalists and
driven tens of thousands of our laborers
out of employment. What shall the end
of this controversy be ?

at 5110,000, and was bid off at 8121,800
to the Woonsockct Company. The prin

Worthy Editors. As your valuable
paper has a large eirculatioo and influence,
permit me through its columns to respond
to a criticism upon Union Seminary by
the editor of the Selinsgrove Journal Jt
We happened to have extended to us a
very cordial iuvitation to attend the exer
cises of the late commencement. It was
accepted, and we lift the ground well
pleased. But our critic noticed a "fea
ture" or two that be could not digest. In
the first placo, there was not enough of
diversification ; there was a lacking of va
riety, in the performances. We would
ask, could there have been more? A wi
der range of thought and contemplation
could hardly be given in the same space
and time, as a reference to the topics
treated, copied iu last week's Chronicle,
will fully demonstrate.
The Journal says the "samcnes"of the
whole ufTair was a noticeable and censura
ble feature. It seemed a little curious to
our friend that the addresses were through
out "titiittul by the same peculiarities."
Ah, indeed ! Well, we hold a different
opinion, and so, we think, do all sound
reasoning minds. We think this "same
ness" indicates a good condition of affairs.
It shows that tbe Institution has made
and lift itt mark upon the minds of those
who have attended it as studcuts. Is it
uuatural that those who sip from the same
fount should partake of the same crystal
waters ? Even as great and famous men I
have left their impressions on an age and
the people who lived eotflmpnrancoua with
ihm, bo the Union has stamped her seal
upon the minds of the noble youth and
maidens who belong to, or at any time
attended the Institution.
As regards what the Journal styles tbe
''Yankee Doodle" nature of all tbe essays
and addresses their religious character
we forbear to say much, as our remarks
might conflict with tbe well known pro
clivities of the critic. Nevertheless, we
must say it is a gladdening sight to be
hold so good a Christian spirit manifested
by the rising generation. It speaks well
for education, for good moral training,and
for tbe continuance of republicanism and
The Journal seems to be dissatisfied
with the references to Bonaparte, Lord
Byron, Voltaire, and many others. But
why should the Editor manifest his entire
disapprobation of such action ? Why
should he vent bis sarcasm at an cduca-
I tional institution, because young men
' thereof, who have therein studied history
! and historical characters, in the course of
! a few houest, commonplace remarks.should
! happen to bold up, not "to public execra-
; tion," but to public scrutiny, the heroes i
i of earlier days than our own ? If the j
youth of our country deduce not their
ideas of government, both social and poll
tical,from the facts of by -gone days,wbence
shall they bo derived ? and if these facts
are referred to, is it not natural that the
character of the principal actors should be
taken into consideration, so as rightfully
to draw conclusions ? Nothing more nat-
t ural. Tbis, again, shows the valuable
' services rendered by this noble institution.
i It shows that tbe young are there taught
i to build their principles on tbe teachings
of mother experience, and experience is
' always the best instructor. This is happy
: knowledge. It is gladdening, soul-cheer-
j ing, to know that the vicious are held up
to public observation, as well as the good,
great, and virtuous. It comports with
the natural inclinations of man, which,
expressed in a few words, prompt to "11 car
all sides, then decide." We feel proud
aud glad that it is so. May it ever re
A few words more. There were cer
tain individuals present at tbe late com
mencement, who, it seemed, were unaware
that political braggadocia was "out of or
der," and inappropriate, to say the least.
We hopo this will be borne iu mind in
future. A word to the wise is sufficient.
Union Seminary stands on a firm foot
ing. We hope it may continue to flourish
and spread its salutary influence on the
minds of the youth of our country.

Lewiiburg... Northumberland. ..Dr.Priettty.
The completion of the connection of the
Ilarrisburg and Baltimore Railroad with
Sunbury, and thus with the Sunbury &
Erie road, is an event of no small impor
tance to the commercial interests of the
country, opening up as it docs to our State
a new route of railroad travel from Harris
burg to Western New York, aud indeed
to the whole of the West, as far as Iowa.
But it is not so much in its commercial
rotations, that we desigu now to speak of
it, as in regard to the facilities it affords
for a new route of recreative summer tra

' tourist, the poet, or the philosopher ; for

It would be a new and most delightful
summer trip to most of our readers, that
to Xorthumberland, and the grave of the
philosopher to Lewulury, with its hand

U. Walker, and with but few rivals as a
University building in the United States.
Thence the traveler might pursue his way
by Williamsport and Eltuira to Niagara,
or anywhere be pleased.

&c, is all it wants. Tbe band of the

AN EARLY VENTURE IN WHEAT FLOUR.
The following citrac', taken from an
account written by tbe Rev. James Mil
ler, and quoted by the author of "Old
Redstone," will give the reader some idea
of the pecuniary embarrassments of early
ministers ami of the general state of the
country, and also of tbe remarkable inter- j large punw and poured upon the table a
position of Divine Providence for the re- j larger pile of gold, than most of the spec
lief of one of those miuisters. tators had ever seen before. The young
"Our story," says Mr. Miller, "will men were each paid one hundred dollars,
carry the reader back to the period when Father Smiley was asked bis charge. He
all north of the Ohio river was almost an
unbroken wildorness tbe mysterious red
man's home. On the other side, a bold
hardy band from beyond tbe mountains
bad built their log cabins, and were trying
to subdue the wilderness. To them every
hour was full of peril. The Indians
would often cross tbe river, steal their
children and horses, kill, and scalp any
victim that came in their way. They
worked iu tbe field with weapons at their
side, and on Sabbath met in a grove or
rude log eburch to hear the word of God,
with their rifles in their hands. To preach
to these settlers, .Mr. Joseph smith, a
Presbyterian minister, bad left bis pater
nal borne, east of the mountains, lie, it I
was said, was tbe second miuister who bad j
crossed tbe Monongahela. He settled in
Washington county, Pennsylvania, and
became the pastor of Cross Creek and Up
per Buffalo congregations, dividing his j
time octwecn theru. lie louod tuem a
willing aud united people, but still unable
to pay bitn a salary which would support
bis family. He, in common with all the
rly ministers, must cultivate a farm.
He purchased one on credit, promising to
pay for it with tbe salary pledged to him
by his people. Years passed away. Tbe
pastor was unpaid. Little or no money
was in circulation. Wheat was abundant,
but there was no market. It could not j
be sold for more than twelve and a half
cents, in cash. Even their salt, which
bad to be brought across tbe mouutaios
on pack-horses, was worth eight dollars per
bushel, and twenty-one bushels of wheat
bad often to be given for one of salt.
1 be time came when the payment must!

ments upon it, and bis hopes of remain-'

The people were called to '
gcthcr, and the case laid before them, and
tbey were greatly moved ; counsel from '
on high was sought ; plan after plan was
proposed and abandoned; the congregation I
were unable to pay a tithe of their debts,
and no money could be borrowed. In des
pair, they adjourned to meet the following
week. In tbe meantime, it was ascertain
ed that a Mr. Moore, who owned tbe only
mill in the county, would grind for them
wheat on reasonable terms. At the next
meeting, it was resolved to carry their
spare wheat to Mr. Moore's mill ; some
gave fifty bushels, some more. This was
carried from fifteen to twenty miles on
horses to mill. In a month, word came
tbat the flour was ready to go to market.
Again the people were called together.
After an earnest prayer the question was
asked, "Who will run the flour to New
Orleans 1" This was a startliog question.
Tbe work was perilous in the extreme ;
months must pass before the adventurer
could hope to return, eveu though bis
journey should be fortunate ; nearly all
tbe way was a wilderness, and gloomy
talcs were told of tbe treacherous Indians.
More than one boat's crew had gone on
that journey and bad come back no more.
"Who, then, could endure tbe toil, and
brave the danger f " None volunteered ;
the young shrunk baek, and the middle
aged had their excuse. At length a boa
ry headed man, an elder iu the church,
sixty-four years of age, rose-, and to the
astonishment of the assembly, said, "Here
lam; send me." The deepest feeling at
once pervaded tbe whole assembly. To
see their venerated elder thus devote him
self for their good, melted them to tears.
Tbey gathered around father Smiley to
learn tbat his resolution was taken ; tbat,
rather than lose their pastor, he would
brave danger, toil, and even death. Af
ter some delay and trouble, two young
men were induced, by hope of a large re
ward, to go as bis assistants. A day was
appointed for starting. The young and
old, from far and near, from love to fath
er Smiley, and deep interest in the object
of bis mission, gathered together, and
with their pastor at their head came down
from the eburch, fifteen miles away, to
tbe bank of tbe river to bid the old man
farewell. Then a prayer was offered up
by their pastor, and a parting hymn was
sung. Inen said the old Scotchman,
"Untie tbe cable, and let us see what tbe
Lord will do for us." Tbis was done,
and tbe boat floated slowly away. More
than nine months passed, and no word
came back from father Smiley. Many a
prayer had been breathed for him, but
what was bis fate was unknown. Anoth
er cabbatb came ; tne people came to
gether for worship, and there, on his rude
bench, before the preacher, composed and
devout, sat father Smiley. After service,
the pcoplo were retjuested to meet early
in the week to hear the report. All camo
again. After thanks had been returned
to Gad fur bis safe return, father Smiley
rose aud told his story : that the Lord
had prospered bis mission ; that he had
sold bis flour for twenty-seven dollars a
barrel, got safely back. He then drew a
j meekly replied, that be thought be ought
J to have ths same as one of the young
men, though be had not done quite as
It was immediately propos-
ed to pay
him three hundred dollars,
! This he refused, till the pastor was paid.
' Upon counting tbe money, it was found
; there was enough to pay what was due
Mr. Smith, to advance his salarv for the
year to come, to reward father Smiley
with three hundred dollars, and then
leave a dividend for each contributor.
Thus their debts were paid, their pastor
relieved, and, while lifd lasted, he broke
for them the bread of life. The bones of
both pastor and elder repose in tbe same
churchyard ; but a grateful posterity still
tells this pleasing story of the past."

His fondness for petty details makes him

aptitude for mathematics makes him ser
viceable for tbe subordiuato duties of
fighting and fortification. In the New
Republic, be will rank tbe laDkee in tbe
scale of slavery, and keep him iu subjec

Frenchman unfit for slavery. All nations
incapable of self-government are fit for
nothing else. Tbe Spaniards are lazy,
but it will not do to exterminate them.
Tbe Spaniard's skill in tbe arts of assas
sination and cigar-making, can be turned
to good account. Let bim retaiu tbe lat

channel of the butchery of domestic ani
mals. The Spanish slave will make a
better butcher than the British slave.
He will also bo of use to the young gen

shared by Italian slaves.
