Come, tell me, little noisy friend, That knockest at my pane, Whence is thy being? where doet end, Thou tiny drop of rain? RAINDEOP. I come from the deep, Where blue waves sleep, And their far-off vigils the sea nymphs keep: I go to the brow Of the mountain snow, And trickle again to the depths below. RHYMER. But, wanderer, bow did'et win thy way From cavern of the sea? Suro ocean's slaughters said thee nay, How earnest, then, to mc? RAINDROP. With far darting flame, The king•of day came And bore me away in a cloudy frame, I sailed in the air Till the zephyrs bare Mr : . ither, to hear thy minstrel prayer. RHYMER. But why dost change thy crystel form, Heaven-shaped and undefiled; A snow flake in the winter storm, And now a summer child? IiAINDItOP. The breaSh from above Of Him who is love In the snow and the rain storm wills me to rove, Lest the young budding earth Be destroyed in the birth, And famine exult over plenty and mirth. RHYMER. And wilt thou, gentle one bestow Thy minstrel's high request; And come when thoughts of earth below Crowd on his aching breast? RAINDROP. 'Tis the minstrel's own To kneel at the throne Of Him who reigns in the heavens alone: 'rho grief of the soul 'Tis His to control, Who bids in the azure the planets to roll. 1111YMEli. His couch when balmy slumber fibs In watches of the night, Till still, sweet voices close his eyes; And pet sad thoughts to flight. RAINDROP. Ah! I cannot come From my sea-deep horns Whon'er I list on the earth to roam: , Whom rides on the form Of tho ocean storm Rie will must the Raindrop too perform. RHYMER. Thy whispering prattle at the pane, Bids timorous fancy smile; Still let me hoar the soothing strain: Now charmer stay awhile. RAINDROP. I cannot delay, Must quickly away Where rills in the valley my coming stay: I haste to the dell, Where the wild flowers dwell; "To the minstrel be peace," is the Raindrop's farewell. Time to me this Truth has Taught. BY CHARLES MAIN. Time to me this truth has taught, ('Tie a truth that's worth revealing,) More offend from want of thought Than from want of feeling— If advice we would convey, There's a time we should convoy it, If we've but a word to say, There's a time in which to say it. Oft unknowingly the tongue Touches on a cord so aching, That a word or accent wrong Paine the heart almost to breaking. Many a tear of wounded pride, Many a fault of human blindness, Has been soothed or tamed aside By a quiet voice of kindness. Many a beauteous flower decays Though we tend it o'er so much— Something secret on it preys, Which no human aid can touch; So in many a lovely breast Lies some canker-grief concealed That if touched is more oppressed— Left unto itself, is healed. Time to me this truth has taught, ('Tie a troth that's worth revealing,) More offend from want of thought Than from want of feeling. Modern Catechism. Question.—What is the chief end of woman? Answer.—To eat oysters, drink Champagne, attend the opera, play cards, and dance the polka. Question—What is the chief end of man? Answer—To foot the bills and sometimes the beaux. 'The late enow storm in Alabama gave great offence to the disunionists. It was regarded as another "nnrtbern aggression." Governor Johnston's Speech at Philadelphia. We promised last week to lay before our read ers the speech delivered at Philadelphia by Gover nor Johnston. We now do so, feeling assured that none can read it without being deeply im pressed with its sterling good sense and lofty pat riotism. It is a masterly vindication of his course. After being loudly called for by the vast assem blage the Governor advanced to the front of the rostrum and spoke as follows: His excellency said that he felt sensible of the kindness and support be bad received from the people of Philadelphia, and more particularly from those of Spring Garden and the Northern Liber ties ; and he took occasion to renew Isis sincere ac knowledgments to his fellow-citizens of those dis tricts. He was a believer in the doctrine which teaches that no public man can sustain himself in any honorable position without the confidence and support of Isis fellow-citizens. Ile believed that under no form of government could a public servant long be sustained unless be has the sym pathy and support of his fellow men in the coun try or region where he holds office. He believed that there is nothing in mercenary guards or cas tellated fortresses, nor all the attributes and ar maments of power equal in security to that which is conferred by the support of the masses of honest and upright men. He believed further, that in this country them is a peculiar propriety in the public servant at all times casting himself before his fellow-citizens, to declare his position and opinions; and if he does not receive their support, Its will retire from his post disgraced. The Gov ernor said he made the remarks because he had so little desire fur public office, that if he thought the people of Pennsylvania had lost their confidence' in his integrity, and ability to fill the office be hold, ho would retire from the field and leave it to other men. He also made these remarks because he had introduced into this State, in its Guber natorial elections, else practice of the candi date appearing before the people,—not because he wished to solicit at their hands, but because he felt it to be the duty of a candidate to meet his fellow-citizens and declare to them, face to face, his sentiments. His opponents bad said in the last campaign that he had sought office publicly upon the rostrum. Ho appealed to the people then present to know whether, in his adresses to them here in Philadelphia, Ise had begged office. (Loud responses—" No ! No !" He looked upon a public man as a simple agent of the people in carrying out the measures which they favor and desire ; and believing that he was correct its the position he had assumed, and would be sustained in a practice which was now common in other states, he determined, in 1848, to address his fellow-citizen throughout the State. He had said then, that he desired to represent no man whose opinions differed from his own upon the topics concerning which he had addressed the peo ple. He said so now. He said that be neither deserved nor desired any such support. Since then a change has come over the state of things, and no man will ever be elected to that high office who has not the honesty to come for ward and declare his sentiments freely. The time has gone by when a cabal can get together in some secret place and make up the opinions of the Governor. The people have learned to despise and defy dictation. The Governor said that it was the fortune of public men to be misrepresent ed .d it might be esteemed fortunate that it wns so sometimes, since, if a public man were not as sailed thus, he might never have nn opportunity to explain those points in his public course which might bo esteemed and valued by all his con stituents. [At this stage of the Governor's remarks h very large delegation arrived from Kensington, head ed by a splendid brass hand, and bearing a large banner, with the inscription " Kensington is coin ing to protect the Tariff." The new camel's were greeted with three hearty cheers, and they re sponded in a loud tone that Kensington is good for 300 majority. The Governor resumed his re marks. The great founder of Pennsylvania was himself the subject of misrepresentation and abuse all his life; and even to this day his memory has been pursued with calumny and misrepresentation.— That great man did much in defence of human rights, suffering imprisonment and every wrong thnt could be dvised. He was punished for his ef forts to establish the great principles of trial by jury, vote by ballot, religious liberty, and other great privileges. Yes, lie, the first Governor of Pennsylvania, advocated those principles with a degree of firmness which many in this day would shrink from ; and yet he has been calumniated even now, and from these calumnies has sprung up a vindication which has demonstrated what he did for posterity, and attests in a striking manner the truth—extraordinary as it may seem --that it is fortunate to bo traduced sometimes.— Men will occasionally do things as partizans which they would lament as individuals : and in this connection he adverted to the charges which had been made by his opponents, that he hail broken all the pledges he had made in the last can vass. In reply to the accusations thus made by the Williamsport Convention, the Governor said that he submitted to the people every pledge he had uttered, and appealed to them to know whether he had violated one of them. (" No, no," was the response from all sides of the assem blage.) He had said in that canvass that he was in favor of the protection of American industry— not mere protection for the interests of the em ploying manufacturer, but protection that would furnish work to the laboring man, and afford him HUNTINGDON, PA., THURSDAY, JUNE 5, 1851. sufficient remuneration for his labor. This, he said, is the only true ground, simply because a government which expeCts a citizen to exercise his political rights, must furnish him with the means of obtaining information to qualify him for their exercise. He said that is the best gov ernment and the most truly democratic which se cures the greatest good to the greatest number; and if men were placed in the national councils opposed to these priciples, they were given but a barren sceptre. In his first annual message to the Legislature he bad presented this subject in as strong and com plete a light as he could; and he then showed that Washington, Jefferson and Jackson had fovea protection, and urged it upon the favorable con sideration of Congress. For some reason or other, that recommendation was treated as if it had never been made. Here the Governor dilated, in an elo quent and fervid style, on the great natural re sources of Pennsylvania, and the inducement thus held out to her to be in favor of protection. The Legislature then failed to do its duty on the sub ject. The subsequent year his recommendation again fell without effect. Not willing to abandon the purpose, on a third occasion lie told the Le gislature that the delinquency of Pennsylvania had lost the measure of protection. Again the warning was unheeded. The spirit of party had produced these bad results. The Governor asked if he was to be charged with breaking pledges thus fulfilled, and whether there were not other men who should hide their heads in shame. He had said further, during the former canvass, that he was "in favor of universal education ;" and he had it now to say that there is no such thing as a non accepting school district in the State. Ile institu ted a contrast between the condition of the State one hundred and fifty years ago and its present prosperity in respect to public education. At the olden date which he alluded to, the first school house was established very near the place on which he was then standing, by Enoch Flowers, with a class of some fifteen or sixteen scholars. He founded the principle of public instruction among us; and now, instead of one shool house and fifteen or six teen scholars, you have fifty or sixty thousand scholars here in this city, and schools are scatter ed all over the broad domains of Pennsylvania.— He did not speak of these beneficial results as flow ing from any measures of his own, hut be did it because he had placed himself on that platform, regardless of all considerations of personal pepu l i - larity; and now he gloried that the system was triumphant throughout the State. In the former canvass he had said that he was opposed to the abuse of the veto power, and he held the same opinion yet; but he also held that the Constitution of the State must be preserved intact, and its pro visions fulfilled, even if principles were sacrificed. He did not believe that he bad sacrificed any principles he had avowed, nor did he believe that if the Whig principles were rightly understood the Constitution need ever be sect Wed. He appeal ed to his fellow-citizens to know if he had abused the veto power. (Cries of " No," "No.") The Legislature had passed measures which did not tneet his approbation, but he had not set up his individual will in opposition to that of many others. He explained that he could not sign the apportionment bill first passed, becaus it was not formed in fairness and justice, and was framed in total disregard of the proper principles of repre sentation, and he said that had there been time be-. fore the close of the session, he could have presen ted reasons which would have satisfied any reason ing man that the bill which was finally successful was neither fair nor just. Another bill he had not signed was one rela ting to the courts in this county, and conferring upon the judges the power over tavern licenses.— He had not approved it because he was in favor of the highest integrity in the judicial tribunals, and because lie believed it important that the Court should not only be pure, but also bo above re proach. The bill in question was ono calculated to give the judges a power which would render them liable to suspicion; and besides it was one merely to restore potters which had been taken away front the judges by former legislation. The Governor also referred to his refusal to sanction a bill which prevented all persons ex cept lawyers front being judges. Ho said that he could not assent to any such construction of the Constitution, more particularly now that the people aro to choose their own judiciary. Dur ing his term of office he felt called upon to exer cise the veto power four or five times; and if this action could he justly regarded as a violation of his pledges, he was obnoxious, but he would do so again under similar circumstances. He said that these misrepresentations were made against him self personally, in order to level, througlt him, the great party which had elected him; and it now rested with the people—whose rights and interests he had endeavored to protect—to say whether the attempt should be successful. Among other as persions, some had referred to his attachment and fidelity to the great American confederacy. In reply, he felt it only necessary to say that if he was not faithful to the Union as it now stands, he asked no man to give him his support. Frankly he would say that ho held the opinion that this government could never be dissolved, and could not be endangered while there was loyalty in the American heart. These were his opinions, and ho gave them for what they were worth. He had never met a citi zen of Pennsylvania who could conscientiously say he had been in fear of the safety of this glorious Union. He did not care why or for what purpose the cry of danger to the Union had been raised. It was wrong for any public or private citizen to en tertain even the apprehension. The Governor re peated the injunction of Washington to discoun- tenance any movement or opinion calculted to ef fect a dissolution of the Union. Ho did not care who was put in or out of office, it was a dangerous opinion that you can dissolve this Union at any time, or under any possible circumstances.— There is no interest, either civil or religious, that would not be lamentably affected by a dissolution of the Union. And here the Governor adverted to the fact, that while this cry of dissolution was being raised, State upon State was busily engaged in making arrangements for mutual lines of public improvements to convey an interchange of produc tions. You cannot, said lie, dissolve this Uunion, because you can never get a majority of the people tro favor the proposition; and he asked why, then, should he be expected to isolate himself from the great mass of intelligent, and virtuous, and patriot in opinion 4 The Governor spoke further, in an impressive style, and was listened to With pro. found'attention throughout. At the close many and loud cheers were given for him as he retired. TUE NEXT GOVERNOR.—In obedience to the senttments of tho'Whige of Montour county, as expressed at their county meeting, on Monday the 19th inst., we take pride in placing. the name of': our worthy Governor, Wm. F. JomtsxoN, at the mast head of the Democrat this week, as our first and only choice for the Governorship next fall, confident that "in this sign we shall conquer."— The indications now are, that Gov. Johnston will not only be nominated unanimously on the first ballot by the Whig State Convention, but also triumphantly re-elected. Pennsylvania never had a better Governor. The welfare of the peo ple has been his only aim, and the honor and cred it of the State have been restored and advanced under the enlightened and beneficial policy of his Administration. It is therefore, natural, that the people desire to retain so valuable a man in the Executive Chair. Our political opponents know full well, that it is an up hill business for them to enter any name in their ranks on the course for the Gubernatorial race, with any reasonable pros pect of success against Johnston—hence their fears of his nomination, and their bitter and ma lignant attacks upon his Administration. But all this will avail nought, if the Whigs throughout the State will but do their duty. Let every friend of the present Administration go to the polls in October next, and a majority of Ten Thousand at least will re-instate Mr. Johnston into the Chair of State, which he has filled with such signal sue- Dentocrat. The Animal Speared. A gentleman nt the American Hotel, in this city, has a fish that is part bull-head, part eel, a little shark, and a touch of the blue fish. Its head is that of the catfish, under the chin is a "goatee," part of the body is that of an eel, and a part bull frog! It is colored of a dirty brown streaked with blue, and it is nearly two feet long. It has but one eye! This nondescript was speared in the Agaw•an river, near Springfield.—Hur(ford Times. If that fish Is'nt the Federal Locofoco party, says the Bedford Gazette, then we give it up. We have often heard of the "embodiment"—at Hartford.— "0 flesh, flesh, how art thou fishified 2" The bull stands for the proverbial obstinacy of the Locofo cos in doing wrong; the eel part for their slipperi ness, the shark their love of foreign monopolies; & the blue fish the blue lights with which they used to make signals to the British in the war of 1812, with Woodbury, Taney, Buchanan; Wilkins, &e. as their leaders. The catfish is emblematic of the "devilish sly" disposition of the party; the "goatee" represents the "nice young men" of that party who go about in French boots and British coats, prating of the '•beauties of Free Trade," and in favor of the "pauper labor of Europe," and the reduction of the wages of our laborers to the European standard of "ten cents a day," and the bull frog is the personification of Locofoco croaking. The dirty brown, streaked with blue, is the Abolition that the Locofocos love so welt, as witnessed in their union in Ohio in the election of an Abolition U. S. Senator, in their union in New York, in their union in Massachu setts, by which Summer the Abolition U. S. Sena tor was elected, and of their union wherever they can gain any political advantage. The ono eye represents the one sided view the Locofocos are in the habit of taking of things; end the spear with which the "odd fish" was slain is a Whig victory The Croup--how to prevent it. A CORRESPONDENT of the flew- York Mirror, medical practitioner, in an article on this subject, says:— "Premonitory symptoms of croup is a shrill, sonorous cough. The patient is not sick—has no fever, as often in a common cold—is lively, per haps gayer than usual—his hands aro cold, his face not flushed, possibly a shade paler than usual. This solitary symptom may last for days with no matterial increase or abatement, and without at tracting any notice; suddenly, however, the disease, hitherto latent, burst forth in all its fatal fury, and too often continuos its ravages unchecked, to tho dreadful consummation. The remedies for this first symptom of croup are simple, and in most in stances perfectly efficient. They are, a mustard poultice, or a strip of flannel dipped in oil of tur pentine or spirits of hartshorn, applied to the throat and nauseating doses of Ilive-Syrup, to be continued as long as the cough remains. By the timely employment of these mild agents, I unhesi tatingly assort that a multitude of lives might lie saved every week, that are now lost through negli gence and delay." It was the custom of the higher order of the Germans to drink mead, and beverage made with honey, for thirty days after every wedding. From this custom comes the expression, to "spend the honey-moon." ronrroil (.7. Origin of the American Flag. SPECULATIONS have often been indulged in about the origin—that is, from whence came the idea of the stars and stripes composing our nation al flag. Whoever has an opportunity of examin ifig the ilhistraled pedigree of the Washington family, lately published by that accomplished ar tist, T. W. Gwilt Maplcson, Esq., of New-Ha ven, Ct., will be struck with the idea in a moment that the coat of arms of Washington furnished the flag of the country, which his generalship made independent of the flag of St, George and entitled to wear one of her own. The pedigree of General Washington, traced and iflatninated by Mr. Gwilt Mapleson, curries back his descent to William de Hertburn, Lord of the Manor of Washington, in the County of Dur ham, England. From him descended John Washington, of Whitefleld, in the time of Richard III.; and ninth in descent from the said John, was George, the first President of the United ' States. The mother of John Washington, who emigrated to Virginia in 1657, and who was great grandmother to the General, was Eleanor Hast ings, grand-daughter to Francis, second Earl of Huntington. She was the descendant, through Lady Huntington, of George, Duke of Clarence, brother of King Edward IV., and King Richard 111., by Isabel Nevi], daughter and heiress of Richard, Earl of Warwick, the King-maker. Washington, therefore, as well as all the de-, scendants of that marriage, are entitled to quarter the arms of Hastings—Pole, Earl of Salisbury, Plantagenet, Scotland, Mortimer, Earl of March, Nevi!, Montagu, Beauchamp, and Devereux. ' The pedigree, which is full and accurate in re gard to dates, gives, as it were, an epitome of the history of the family. It is surrounded by a bor der ornamented by the shields of arms, implanted by different ancestors in right of their wives as well as some of the quarterings borne by their descendants. The engravings in colors is in the very best style, and perhaps the most highly (finished work ever done by Sinclair, of Philadelphia; who is ac knowledegd to be without a rival in his art. The coat of arms of the first John Washington was composed of three stars and three stripes, which form a part of all heraldic bearings of the family ever since. George Washington was entitled to use Isis en sign upon a ling in the army which he command ed ; and in all probability the first one ever made in America was composed of three stars and three stripes, which those who were versed in heraldry would at once recognize as the proper colors of the Commander-in-Chief of the Revolutionary army —the flag of Washington. In time ten other stars were added, and the flag of Washington became the flag of the thirteen United Colonies. While individuals still live who might have seen the first Washington standard unfurled, or who helped to swell the shout that went up to Heaven when the thirteen stars first spread to the breeze over the thirteen United States—behold ! the fig ures are transposed—thirteen has changed to thir ty-one—a tenfold multiplicity from the original number of stars, has hidden the origin of the flag; and few are aware, as they uncover the head to honor the name of Washington, and send up shout alter shout as the stars and stripes are unfolded to the breeze, that the flag they adore is the flag of the name they would honor—the stars and stripes of the arms and standard of Washington. Let us send up one more shout of gratulation, that " Our flag is (still) there," and the namo of its founder is still here, in our hearts—in the hearts of all the people of the thir ty-one United States, over whom, until the name is forgotten, may no other flag ever wave than the stars and stripes of Washington.—Er. paper. cir THE Blade says, that the toothache may be cured by holding in the right hand a certain root—the root of the aching tooth: DEFINING AN APPETITE.-An old gentleman, who has a peculiar relish now and then for a glass of the ardent, not long since, after taking a horn of good Santa Cruz, thus expressed himself:—"l row.

The subject of Canada Thistles is often spokes of, and the modes of eradicating them suggested. But some who have succeeded in destroying them once, do not seem confident that the some mode will always be equally efficacious. Now a word on this subject. I have been greatly annoyed with thistles—have supposed it impossible to ex tirpate them—have mowed them in all times of the moon—have salted them—and have ploughed them two or three times in the summer—and still tlly have been the victors. And they will con tinue to be the victors, wherever the ground is tilled, unless the design and determination is to till them to death. If ploughing is the mode re sorted to, it will he absolutely effectual in a sin gle season, if repented so often that the shoots cannot come to the surface and there enjoy the light and heat. But if ploughed only once, or twice, or even thrice, inn season, and the shoots be permitted fo come to the light, and grow two' or three inches it amounts to nothing more than a transplanting of the roots. A broken piece of root only three or four incites in length, will send upa shoot almosi, equal in size to the roof ifself lam confident that in breaking the roots in ploughing our summer follows and other grain fields, and scattering the pieces by the harrow, the plant is spread more than by the scattering of the seeds on the wings of the wind. In hoed crops they can be entirely destroyed in a single season, by going through the field as they appear, and with the hoe cutting them off a little below the surface. But then, the inch of the root thus cut off must be turned up so as to wilt and dry, or it will continue grow. In small patches, as in gardens, and ornamental grounds around the mansion, I have entirely destroyed them in a sin gle season by cutting them below the surface with a weeding trowel, ns often as.they appeared. The process of repeated ploughing, as stated herein, when the patch is extensive, or the use of the hoe or trowel, as suggested above, can be confliently relied upon as entirely effectual.— Gencsee Far mer. Repairing Scythe Suatip. Mr. Daniel S. Curtis, of Canaan Centre, New York, recommends the following method of re pairing scythe snatbs, which he has practised ma ny years, and which may benefit some of our sub scribers,— "When the craw hole, (socket to receive did' scythe) fails, which is very common, I flat the end of the snaths abmit six inches from the end; and get a blacksmith to fit an iron to it about one eighth of an inch thick, with a hole punched in it suitable for the craw of the scythe, which makes the snath far more durable than when new. I find, on examining my snaths, that I have none but what have been repaired in this way, and that I have saved 'the expense of buying any for see- , oral years." Experiment with Corn. The ground on which the experiment was made was as nem- alike, and' prepared as near alike, as could be. The corn wits planted the 4tb. of May, three by five feet. That which was ploughed, was ploughed the widest way only. Four rows were ploughed exclusively with the coulter, from eight to ten inches deep. Plough ing repeated four times at suitable intervals. The next four rows were cultivated entirely with the hoe. The balance was ploughed as is usual here;' first throwing the earth from, and then to the corn, and sloughing , four times. All was kept clean throughout the season. Two rows of that cultivated as usual, when gathered, weighed 42' pounds. The next two, hoed corn, weighed 43i, pounds. The two other rows of hoed corn weigh ed 43 pounds. Two rows of coultered corn, side by side with the preceding, and having the same number of hills and ears of corn, weighed 461 pounds. The hoed corn was nearly prostrated twice by wind and rain. I had to set up the greater part of it, just before and just after it tas seled. The coultered emu suffered hardly half so much as the hoed. The residue suffered compar atively little. These are the facts. Deductions are for you and your renders. The quantity rais ed on the ground is of no consequence. I connected various other experiments with corn but do not deem them of sufficient interest to burden your columns nor bore your readers with them. These little things are interesting to me, however, and I always have some such under headway.—. American Agriculturist.
