She was•-very impatient to meet Julia
-Mfrs-^e, the onlyperson in The world. per
whose privation or eense approaches
in any 6gree to hers; ad about whom it
• seems much had - hem told her;
. •• At last.Jutia was brought &wit, and the
- two met, and felt of each other! But what
a differenee between the two ! Julia is a
woman ecowe, and unprepossessing in her
appearance,' because she is without „anima
' thm, without vivaeity r Without any expres
-sinn of face. She was made to understand,
by placing her fingers on Lthra's eyes and.
on. her ears, that eke was - blind and deaf
like herself, hut . her countenance . .changed
. not; she manifested little interest, and in a
monent er two began to withdraw from
tho child, who clung to her, put around her
neck a chain of her own braiding, dnil
kisied her ! Vain impulse of affectioc !
Julia coolly put into her pocket the present
.which'Laura had brought Iter,>and was
making off from the child, whose distress
now became evident, and who eagerly
asked. the Miters, ." Why -dues she push
me, Why does- she not•love me!"
IVhat a contrast . in 'their' charactere I— 1
Lava wanted her affection and sympathy,
and would not besatislied. without them.;
Julia; having got her present, was
desirous of terminating the interview, and
carrying* off her possession !
uch,, is the effect of education; such the
consequence of evolving the moral and so
cial !mime, as. has been done in the ease of
Laura ;' or. of exercising only the lower
propensities, and allowing -human be

and for himself alone
. The kthil and good'Peeple who have the

they ,ctin do . ; but this, is little, for they have
no - mints of communicating with her. I

I request your aceeptance, and that of the
gentlemen by whom it is offered, of my
cordial thanks for a .present, so congenial
with my most agreeable occupation, and
indicative of the best and -the most inno
cent pursuit of man. It is a magnificent
specimen . of the
,kind, and Uglily credita
ble to the skill and taste of Mr. Miming
"ton, who made it. If our law-makers
would worleas well , and as. true, as I am
sure this plough will, their laws would be
as good.As the crops which I am persuaded.
it may be made to produce.
I am, 'gentlemen, inexpressibly thankful
and grateful for the confidence you have
so kindly conveyed in my public career.=
It is perfectly true that it has. beerfone full*
of difficulties ; resulting sometimes from
political opponents, and-redently from both
-profesied friends and open foes.. Whether
proceeding, hoWevei, from . one or the oth
er, or from both, my rule of 'coquet - has

to.discharge my duty, firmly - And faithfully,
regardless of all personal consequencee..=

A singular and fatal circumstance is re
corded by the Marshall (Va.) Beacon. It
appears that a Mrs. Anne Pettinger, daugh
ter of Robert Milk, of Jefferson county,
Ohio, whilst riding on horseback on the
26th ult., was seized With an epileptic fit,
which caused her. immediate death. Mrs.
'. had only been married the day previous,
in Mr. N. Pettinger of Brooke county, Va..
and the bride and groom, in company with
'nutritier of their Mende, when this die
tressing event occurred, were returning to
the home . of My. P. in the height of hilar
ity and merriment. In the spring time f
life, the flowers that adorned the path of the
bride; were gathered to strew upon her un
timely grave, and the gay bridal vesture en
cases her cold form as the , sad and mourn
ful winding sheet. Who can calculate the
chances of existence?
In the Stale of Illinois the newspapers
are discussing the proprietrof amending

Many persons seem at a loss to know
why Mr. Botts dubbed the President "Cap.
tain' Tyler." Some suppose 'that it was
in derision---others that it merely referred
. to hinkes a leadef.. The Charlestown Free

falls precisely on those who• ought to bear
it, since it was the excess of loans, which
was the cause 'of the suspension." Two

their own fault; . and .it ie fir . better that
some of them should, if: necessary, wind
up their business; rather than those which
are sound and prepared, should continue to
suspend their payments, ind.that the gene
ral interest should still be sacrificed for the
benefit of the few. The interest of diose
borrowers who oppose, a resumption may
be combined with that ofsome of the bankr,
either on account of their own embarrass- 1
mend as was the United. States Bank of
Pennsylvania, or because' they make larger
profits, so long as they are not compelled
to curtail their disiounts. In either case,
plausible pretences for further delay are
never wanted; And of this we' hail sufficient
