there. For several days at times he was

treaty is word for word as follows
The United States or America and her Majesty
the Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain
and Ireland, deeming it to be desirable for the future
welfare of both countries that the state of doubt
and uncertainty which has hitherto prevailed re
specting the sovreignty and government of the ter•
ritory on the northwest coast of America, lying
westward of the Rocky or Stony mountains, should
be finally terminated by an amicable compromise
of the rights mutually asserted by the two parties
over the said territory, have respectively named
plenipotentiaries to treat and agree concerning the
terms of such settlement —that is to eey : the Pres
ident of the United States of America has, on his
part, furnished with full powers James Buchanan,
Secretary of State of the United Slates, and her
Majesty, the Queen of the United Kingdon of Great
Britain and Ireland has, on her part, appointed the
right honorable Richard Pakenham, a member of
her Majesty's most honorable privy council, and
her Majesty's envoy extraordinary and minister
plenipotentiary to the United States; who after
having communicated to each other their respective
full powers, found in good and due form, have
agreed upon and concluded the following articles:
From tho point on the forty-ninth parallel of
north latitude, where the boundary laid down in en
kting treaties and conventions between the United
States and Great Britain terminates, the line of
boundary between the territories of the United
States and those of her Britanic Majesty shall be
continued westward along the said forty-ninth par
allel of north latitude to the middle of the channel
which separates the continent from Vancouver's
Island ; and thence southerly through the middle of
the said channel, and of Fuca's straits to the Pacific
Ocean: PROVIDED, itowEvErt, That the navigation
of the whole of the said channel and straits south
of the forty-ninth parallel of north latitude remain
free and open to both parties.
From the point at which the forty-ninth parallel
of north latitude shall be found to intersect the
great northern branch of the Columbia river, the
navigation of the said branch shall be free and
open to the Hudson Bay Company and to all Brit
ish subjects trading with the same, to the point
where the said branch meets the main stream of the
Columbia, and thence down the said main stream
to the ocean, with free access into and through the
said river or rivers, it being understood that all the
usual portages along the line thus described shall in
like manner be free and open. In navigating the
said river or rivers, British subjects, with their goods
and produce, shall be treated on the same footing as
citizens of the United States; it being, however,
always understood that nothing in this article shall
be construed as preventing, or intended to prevent
the government of the United States from making
any regulations respecting the navigation of the
said river or rivers not inconsistent with the present
In the future appropriation of the territory south
of the forty-ninth parallel of north latitude, as pro
vided in the first article of this treaty, the posses
sory rights of the Hudson Bay Company, and of
all British subjects who may be already in the oc
cupation of land or other property lawfully acqui
red within the said territory, shall be respected.
The farms, lands, and other property of every
dem iption belonging to the Puget's Sound Agri
cultural Company on the north side of the Colum
bia river, shall be confirmed to the said company.—
In case, however, the situation of those farms and
lends should be considered by the United States to
be of public and political importance, and the Uni
ted Slates government should signify a desire to ob
tain possession of the whole, or of any part thereof,
the property so required shall be transferred to the
said government, at is proper valuation to be agreed
upon by the parties.
The present treaty shall be retitled by the Presi

and consent of the Senate thereof, end by her Brit

changed at London, at the expiration of six months
from the date thereof, or maser, if possible.

One of the best stories we have lately read, iv
entitled "Tus Cousms,— A Country
It is from the chaste pen of Miss Mitford,lan Nnglish
authoress of considerable reputation. The whole
Is too long for ono paper; and it is a story which
it will not do to divide. The first half of the story,
like the bigger portion of the first volume of some
of Scott's novels, is merely introductory to what
follows. So we will sum up the prefatory part in
a few words, and then give the denouement in Miss
Milford's own beautiful language.
Lawyer Molesworth was a rich landlord of Cran
ley, the native town of Miss Milford. He had two
daughters, to whom his pleasant house owed its
chief attraction. Agnes was a beautiful woman;
Jessy was a pretty girl. The fond father intended
that Jessy should marry a poor relation, one Charles
Woodford. Charles had been brought up by his
uncle's kindness, and had recently returned into
the family from a great office in London. Charles
was to be the immediate partner and eventful suc
cessor to the great and flourishing business of his
benefactor, whose regard seemed fully justified by
the excellent conduct and remarkable talents of the
orphan nephew. Agnes, who secretly entertained
en affection for Charles, was destined by her father
for a young baronet who had lately been much at
But in the affairs of love, as of all others, (says
Miss Milford) man is born to disappointments.—
" L'homme propose, et Dieu dispose," is never
truer than in the great matter of matrimony. So
found poor Mr. Molesworth, who—Jessy having ar
rived at the age of eighteen, and Charles at that of
two and twenty—offered his pretty daughter, and
the lucrative partnership to his penniless relation,
and was petrified with astonishment and indigna
tion to find the connection very respectfully, but
very firmly, declined. The young man was very
much distressed and agitated ; he had the highest
respect for Miss Jessy, but he could not marry her
—he loved another ! And then he poured forth a
confidence as unexpected as it was undesired by
his incensed patron, who left him in uniiminished
wrath and increased perplexity.
This interview had taken place immediately after
breakfast; and when the conference was ended, the
provoked father sought his daughters, who happily
unconscious of all that occurred, wore amusing
themselves in their splendid conservatory—a scene
always beco.ning as it is agreeable to youth and
beauty. Jessy was flitting about like a butterfly
among the fragrant orange trees and bright geran
iums; Agnes was standing under a superb fuschia
that hung over a large marble basin—her form and
attitude, her white dress, and the classical arrange
ment of her dark hair, giving her the look of some
nymph or naiad, a rare relic of the Grecian art.—
Jessy was prattling gaily, as she wandered about,
of a concert they had attended the evening before
at the county town.
I hate concerts, said the pretty little flirt. ‘. To
sit bolt upright on a hard bends for four hours, be
tween the same four people, without the possibility
of moving or speaking to any body, or any body's
getting near enough to speak to you! 011, how
tiresome it is!
I saw Sir Edmund trying to slide through the
crowd to reach you, said Agnes, a little archly ;
his presence would perhaps, have mitigated the
evil. But the barricade was too complete; he was
forced to retreat, without accomplishing his object.
Yea, I assure you, he thought it very tiresome;
he told me so when we were coming out. And
then the music ! pursued Jessy ; the noise that they
called music ! Sir Edmund says that he likes no
music except my guitar, or a flute on the water;
and' I like none except your playing on the organ,
and singing Handel on a Sunday evening, or
Charles Woodford's reading Milton and bits of
Do you call that music? asked Agnes, laughing.
And yet, continued she, it is most truly so, with his
rich Pasta like voice, and his fine sense of sound
and to you, who do not greatly love poetry for its
own sake, it is, doubtless, a pleasure much resem
bling in kind that of hearing the most thrilling
melodies on the noblest of instruments. I myself
have felt such a gratification in hearing that voice
recite the verses of Homer or Sophocles in the orig•
inol Greek. Charles Woodford's reading is music.
It is music which neither of you are likely to
hear again, interrupted Mr. Molesvvorth, advancing
suddenly towards them; for he has been ungrate
ful, and I have discarded him.
Agnes stood we if petrified. Ungrateful! oh,
You can't have discarded him, to be cure, papa,
said Jassy, always good natured ; poor Charles !
what can he have done ?
Refused your hand, my child, said the angry
parent; refused to be my partner and son-in-law,
and fallen in love with another lady ! What have
you to ray to him now ?
Why, Ally, papa, replied Jesay, I am much
more obliged to him for refusing my hand, than to
you for offering it. I like Charles well for a cousin,
but I should not like such a husband at all : so if
this refusal be the worst that has happened, there
is no great harm done. And off the gipsy ran ;
declat ing that she must put on her hel:it, for she
had promised to ride with Sir Edmur.d end his
sister, and expected them every minute.
The father and his favorite daughter remained in
That heart is untouched, however, said Mr.
111olestvorth, looking after her with a smile.
Untouched by Charles Woodford, nndoubtedly,
replied Agnes; but has he really refused my

And does he love another
He says so, and I believe him.
Is ho loved again ?
That he did not say.
Did ho tell you the name of the lady?
Do you know her?
Is she worthy of him ?
Has lie any hope of gaining her affections? Oh!
ha must! he must! What woman could refuse
"He is determined not to try. The lady whom
he loves is above him in every way; and much as
he has counteracted my wishes, it is an honorable
part of Charles Woodford's conduct, that he intends
to leave his affection unsuspected by his object.
Hero ensued a short pause in the dialogue, du
ring which Agnes appeared trying to occupy her
self with collecting the blossoms of a cope jessa
mine and watering a favorite geranium ; but it
would not do. The subject was at her heart, and
she could not force her mind to indifferent occupa ,
tions. She returned to her father, who had been
anxiously watching her motions, and the varying
expressions of her countenance, and resumed the
"Father ! perhaps it is hardly maidenly to avow
so much, but although you have never in set words
told mo your intentions, I have yet seen and know,
I cannot tell how, all that your too kind partiality
towards me, has designed for your children. You
have mistaken me, dearest father, doubly mistaken
me; first in thinking me flit to fill a splendid place
in society; next in imagining that I desired such
splendor. You mean to give Joey and the lucra
tive partnership to Charles Woodford, and designed
me and your large possessions to our wealthy and
titled neighbor. And with little change of person
these arrangements may still for the most part hold
good. Sir Edmund may still be your son-in-law
and your heir, fur he loves Jassy, and Jassy loves
him. Charles Woodford may still bo your part
ner and adopted son, fur nothing has chanced that
need diminish your affection or his merit. Marry
him to the woman he loves. She must be ambitious
indeed, if she be not centent with such a destiny.
And let me live on with you, dear father! single
and unwedded, with no thong ht but to contribute
to your comfort, and to cheer and brighten your de

And so it was settled. And a very few months
proved that love had contrived better for Mr. Moles
worth than he had done for himself. Jessy with
her prettiness, and her title, arid her fopperies, was
the very thing to 120 vain of—the vary thing to visit

Counsel to Younng Men.
DY THE REV. DR. NORT.
Truth and justice are immutable and
eternal principles—always sacred and al
ways applicable. In no circumstance
however urgent, no crisis, however awful,
can there be an aberration from the one,
or a dereliction of the other, without sin.
With respect to every thing else, be ac
commodating; but here be unyielding and
invincible. Rather carry your integrity ,
to the dungeon or the scaffold, than re
ceive in exchange for it liberty and life.—
Should you ever be called upon to make
your election between these extremes, do
not hesitate. It is better prematurely to
be sent to heaven in honor, than, having
lingered on the earth, at last to sink to
ruin and infamy. In every situation a
dishonest man is detestable, and a liar is
much more so.
Truth is one of the fairest attributes of
the Deity. It is the boundary which sep
erates vice front virtue; the line which
divides heaven from hell. It is the chain
which binds the man of integrity to the
throne of God ; and like the rind to
whoseithrone it binds him till thin chain is
dissolved his word 'nay be relied on.—
Suspended on this your reputation, your
life's sate. But against the malice of a
liar there is no security. He can be bound
by nothing. His soul is already repulsed
to an immeasurable distance from that
Deity, a sense of whose presence is the se•
entity of virtue. lle has sundered the
last of those moral ligaments which bind a
mortal to his duty. And having done so,
through the extended reason of fraud and
falsehood, without a bond to check or a
limit to confine him, he ranges—the dread.
ed enemy of innocence—whose lips pol
lute even truth itself as it passes through
them, and whose breath blasts and soils,
and poisons as it touches.
The following just sentiment was utter
ed by Daniel Webster in a late speech in
the Senate of the United States. It
should be had in everlasting remembrance.
"Sir, I say it is employment that makes
the people happy. Sir this great truth
ought never to be forgotten: it ought to
be placed upon the title-page of every
book on political economy intended for
America, and such countries as America.
It ought to be placed in every farmer's al
manac. It ought to head the colonies of
every farmet's magazine and mechanic's
magazine. It should be proclaimed every
where, notwithstanding what we hear of
the usefulness—and I admit the high use
fulness—of cheap loud—notwithstanding
that, the great truth should be proclaimed
every where, should be made into a pro
verb, if it could--that witEltF. THERE Is
WORK FOR THE HANDS AND THE MEN
THERE WILL BE 0000 FOIE THEIR TEETH.
Where there is employmemnt, there will
be bread. And in a country like our own,
above all others, will this truth hold
good—a country like ours, where with a
great deal of spirit and activity among the
masses, if they can lied employment,
there is always great willingness for la
bor. If they can obtain fair compensation
for their labor, they will have good houses
—good clothing—good food, and the means
of educating their families; and if they
have good houses, and good clothing, and
good food, and means of educating their
children, from their labor, that labor will
be diem fill, and they will be a contented,
and a happy people."

Dr. Scoresby, of Ireland, whose admi

far system through the magnificent instru
ment of Lord Bosse, rental ks, in a recent
lecture, that, with regard to the lunar orb,
every object on the muou's surface is now
distinctly to be seen ; and lie had no doubt
that under very favorable circumstances it
would be so with objects sixty feet in
height On its surface were craters of ex •
tinct volcanoes, rocks, and masses of stone
almost inumerable. Ile had no doubt what
ever that if such a building as he was then
ill were upon the surface of the moon, it
would be rendered distinctly visible by
these instruments. But there were no
signs of habitations such as ours; no ves
tiges of architectural remains, in show
that the moon is, or ever was, inhabited
by a race of 'mortals similar to ourselves.
It presented no appearances ohich could
lead to the supposition that it contained
any thing like the green fields viol lovely

there was no water visible ; not a sea, or

o'clock a testate servant of Mrs. Buyer,

was the first to push the store door open,
which had been nearly closed. She found
Mr. Barncastle in a setting position with
his hands tied under his legs, and a piece of
stick in his mouth, which appeared to have
acted as a gag. Ile was insensible, hut

was stooping down to unbutton the strap of
the pants of his customer, the men caught
hold of him, and a scuffle ensuing, he was
beaten and left in a state of insensibility.
He discovered subsequently that he had
been robbed of about 8400. The gag was
a piece of stick about eit inches in length,

could eject it with out difficulty from be
