ors?. By-tile-way, there's a letter on the ta
ble from one of yoUr neighbors, who writes
the very instant he learns that you are off-Icsr
-Washington. He thinks if your claim is good
.his must pass too. I am speaking of Mr.
'But, sir,' remarked Wylvernon, deferen -
(jelly, 'is there not a material difference be
tween his case and my mother's?' and Ire .
prodeeded to explain.
'lt is a just distinction, I own,' replied the
representative, 'but •then 'tis an exceedingly
fine one—everybody,Aps not eye's to see it.
As what's-his•name remarked the other day,
in the committee, we must have broad, nat
ural-bouridaries in the region of claims,_ as•
well as on the surface of the-muddy - earth.—
We must have high mountains and Rio
Grandes, and even then, f reckon, some of
you claimants will manage to-locale on the

and was about to be off in haste.- I'll an
swer for it, his 'cheek reddened too, and
sparks shot born his eye, for he is- not th•
calmest person in the world.
-----The-mercher- added, 'Don't-take offence,
sir; really think your claim sufficiently just
in itself, but it is the pack
. of others which
will be corning in Mitt I'm afraid of. Young,,,;
man, you don't know whata bother we have,
to manage the best way we can. I am
sorry on your account, arid your mother's
but it can't be helped. We must stop some.
where, or else pass every claim that comes ;
the best plan would be a great sight easier,
you understand, but then, duty's duty, and
must be stuck to'
In fact, Wylvernon found that the case
was a hopeless one.' And ivhat was worse,
not only much time had been hist, but the
small rearm of IgeLtrititlior's property were
entirely consumed. Left thus destitute in ar
expensive city, with a mother and severs .1
sisters dependent upon him, his situatio n
was by no meantyan enviable one. Y•et
though necessarily anzious.and troubled, lie
had never seemed so completely depresse d
as thatmorning.W hen he had been preset l
ied With an office in one of the Exeoutiv e
I laughed at him; and as he•continued si -
lent, inquired, 'Haw much a year is it P
'A thousand dollars,' came (rot:zeds lips,
bnt his mind was still absent.
.That is net a great deal, indeed,' said 1. ;
'but as the family is not large, it will suffice
•to support you.'
'Yes, that's the.evil ; it will just support
lee,' he answered gloonily.
'And in a few years, if not turned out, you
will probably rise to a better one.'
'Oh! there's no hope of being turr.ed out;
I'll grow old in it, I'll be bound.' .
A light broke upon me. I no longer won
dered at his sadness. It was very pleasant
for a yonng . man, with talents and educa
tion fitting him for an active part in life, to
look ferviard to the unending torpidity of an
office. And, lot my own part, I could then
more easily have wept, than have repeated
that'merry laugh. He saw that I understood
his feelings, and I thought Was not unwilling
to throw open the gates of his heart yet wi
'Could you not manage to save up a little
every year i'
'Out of a thousand dollars? how can I?=
Who, in 'Washington with a family, can save
trorri two thousand ?' •
My benevolent scheme had tumbled &owl
ere it was fairly built, and . 1 knew not boy r
to make another attempt to comfort. . A.i
length I suggested, 'Might not your mothet r
and sisters board in the country at less ex -
pause thaniiere v and_m_that_way_enable yot-i
to lay by something?'
His face brightened up a little: '1 have )
thought al tliat, too, but what 'a mere trill(
could possibly be put aside!'
, ‘Ah ! tot,' I answered; chow a little
time counts op in the end. I have always
heard that's the way to get rich. Suppost 3

AANECDOTES' , OP - GENt TAYLOR.
IVE had the pleasure of conversing, last
week, with a shrewd and intelligent gentle:
man from the South-West,,4ho has had op
portunities o! knowo.l Zatiiiary Taylor—of
observing him closely—witetravelled with
linn some distance very recently—lies visi
ted his plantations and partaken of his hos
pitality. In respectSohis impressions
of the new President differ• slightly from
those generally prevailingA , but as tb the
main features of the ;zero's character
abundantly confirmed. the popular opinion.
Of his generosity, disintereinedness and ben.
evolence he spoke in high terms—described'
the old fashioned hospitality which prevail
ed at Baton Rouge arid equally So at hie
plantations—the overseers of the latter ha
ving caught the spirit of Preeidelittaylor in
Ibis respect but expressed some disappoint
ment at the general management of the
plantations, consequent,.n, probably, upon the
prolonged absence :of the owner , in the ser
vice of his country.
He described President TaitiOrls populari
ty as unbounded, and 488E610Am sponta
neous wherever the old .Heratmoves. He
appears -te possess latuitive
Sympathy : with his fellows Winch distinguish
es Henry Clay, somewhat less refined - in its
charadter, butlulky as stronginAts affinities.
There appears to be mot% of frank, careless
_mess, familiar conversation on the part of
. r than we had supposed, without
anything o rusqueness or rudeness. A
c. ireful study oft old man's character, had
it.iduced the conviction , that 'Zachary Taylor

ii able energy and courage he has manifested

As we thought over the conversation allu
ded to, we confesi to increased confidence
and hope for 'the future of our beloved coun
try. The elevation of such a man to the
chief magistraoy of the republic, at such a
juncture as the present, seems to us most op
portune and providential; and we use the
latter word advisedly. That the strange and
apparently unfortunate events which have
dielinguished'the career of the present Ex
ecutive have evolved such a result. as, the,
substitution of General Taylor for. Mr. Polk

the case, and serve out half or even quarter
rations, if it should become necessary. -On.
arriving at Micanopy, having failed to get
-any - forage - either at this or any of the posts
we had passed, I found it indispensable to
curtail the forage one-half. During thi's day,
Gen. Taylor's servant came as usual io draw

that the staff horses, being i geherrally the best

Setting forth how the true Poet bath a deeply
rooted'affeetion for all tldnge.
Upon a lake I love to hear
The waterggently dashing;
And like low music on my ear,
Disci the oar's light flashing.
And Ina book I love tg read
About the sword's deep slashing;
Andlniw tho Warrior's fight and.bloed,
And die with fierce teeth gnashing.
It mire me up'to think about
The rage and blood and gashing;
The struggling, and the deafening shout,
And the loud cannon's crashing.
But better . far I love to see •
Bliss Julia's bright eyes flashing,
And whenthetr splendor lights on me,
I feel ray heart-strings smashing.
It makes my inmost soul rejoice
To hear her sweet tongue clashing;
Arid when shelifts her melting voice
Beware of a tongue-lashing.
But, bet\lf love, my Uncle Bill
With ter r quite abashing;
And I can scarcely wait until
Ile dies, to make hie 0.0311 rings

gentleman with a mulberry face, a brown

his nag, and after beaming that ` I was bound
-for-Cambridge, politely invited me to take
seat beside him in a litile sort of tax cart he
was driving. Nothing loth, I consented, and
we were soon en route. The mare he drove
was a very Peculiar animal. She had afew
good points to the eye, being heavy bodied,
hemmer headed, thin in the shoulders, bald
laced and rejoicing in a little stump of a tail •
which was almost entirely innocent of hair'

'Rar. away ! A child could hold her. Oh!

gentlemen, looking full in my face with a
quizzical expression, and putting the • fore
finger of his right hand on the right side of
his party colored proboscis.
