ODE TO CHESAPEAKE BAY
Thou Ocean Day!
Though now with sails unfurl'd,
Collecting from the mighty deep,
Over thy curling waters sweep
The fleets of half the world—
There was a day,
Nor distant far the time,
When in thy solitude sublime,
Save light canoe by artless savage plied,
No sail was ever seen to skim thy billowy tide
Though now thy shores are crown'd
With grassy lawns and fields of grain,
That smile, and cheer the laboring swain,
And songs go blithely round,
That well bespeak
How pleasant joys may Row—
Yet three short centuries ago
No human voice was here save savage yell,
And dark upon thy waves the forest shadows
Mother of waters!
Thy noble streams did glide
Beneath a woody canopy
Through countless years, and still they be
All lovely by thy side
As beauteous daughters,
And lift their voice on high,
And clap their hands as they go by
Proud Baltimor's rich monuments and domes,
Columbia's palace halls, and Richmond's pa
BLONDIN AND THE PRINCE OF WAL9.—
A despatch to the Herald of Tuesday
thus describes how Blondin crossed over
the Niagara Falls on Saturday before
the Prince of Wales :
When the Prince arrived Blondin
bowed to the Prince and started off, the
Prince watching him attentively through
a telescope. The Fringe had a seat in
a rustic pavilion, the Duke of Newcastle
and suite sitting in the rear, with M . ajor
Teesdale and others sitting crosslegged
in front, with no regard to dress.
Some Americans will be surprised to
see that the Prince and suite dress in
clothes very plain and neat, and which
would give a Broadway dandy the hor
Blondin crossed and returned, and the
Prince complimented him by clapping
his hands in applause ; and then Blondin
prepared to carry a man over. To this
the Prince objected, and only after re
peated assurances would he allow Sion
din to start with Coloord, his agent, on
his back, pausing only to have a photo
graph taken. The Prince watched with
breathless interest, commenting much
on the performance.
Macy people were disappointed, as
they thought that Blondin would carry
the Prince on the rope. We state this
in all seriousness, as the affiiir was freely
talked about by the spectators.
For the first time Blondin, returned on
stiilts, the Prince also having put in a
protest against this performance. It was
a most arduous and masterly feat, but
did not please the Prince, who thought
When Blondin reached the shore, the
Prince and suite had a long conversa
tion with him in French, complimenting
him, and asking about the stilts, and his
feelings while on the rope. As the
Prince left, he said, "Thank God, it's all
over." Observed Farini's rope, farther
up the river, he asked what it was. "A
path for another fool," answered Dr.
Kerwin. The Prince laughed aloud,
and nodded his assent to this epigram
matic reply. The sensation on seeing
Blondin, is like witnessing the execution
of a man by hanging.
THE DAMSEL AT THE PLOUGH.-A rather
unusual circumstance occurred at a
ploughing match which took place at
Vaugueray (Rhone), a young woman,
about nineteen, driving a pair of oxen,
presenting herself as one of the compe
titors. At first, some objections were
raised to her admission, but, under the
circumstances of the case, they were set
aside. Marie (Thirst, the young girl in
question, had the misfortune to lose her
father about ten months ago. He had a
lease of a farm at a rent of two thousand
francs a year, and when he died left a
widow, a little boy,' and Marie. The
daughter, feeling that to quit the farm in
the middle of the lease, would be the
ruin of the family, told her mother not
to be cast down, for she would under
take to work the land. She applied
herself strenuously to the work, and was
soon pronounced to be the best conduc
tor of a plough in the commune. That
opinion was confirmed at the public
competition, as the principal prize was
awarded to her. She returned home in
triumph to her mother, accompanied by
a party of female friends, who presented
her with a large bouquet. This incident
produced a deep impression among the
go' The' King of Naples has fled to
Lost' His Sunday dr two
since, at Grace Chttrch ; says the Home
Journal, a young gentleman pat his hat
under the seat, and shortly afterward
two prepossessing young ladies sat next
him. At the conclusion of the service
the ladies left the church first, and the
gentleman stopped in search of his hat,
and, to to his surprise, found it gone.—
He called the sexton and applied to that
worthy functionary for advice. Mr.
Brown suggested that it might have
been caught in the ladies' crinoline ; and
entangled in the crinoline sure enough
it was. After bobbing against one of
the young ladies' ankles for a distance of
about twenty yards, the hat dropped out,
much to, the astonishment and surprise
of those following.
WHO is A VAGRANT 7—Judge Suther
land, of the New York Supreme Court,
has given a decision upon the question of
what constitutes vagrancy, which is very
important, and will, no doubt, be hereaft
er employed both for good and for evil.
The decision completely ignores the gen
eral opinion that prostitution is of itself
vagrancy. The Judge decides that the
vagrant laws do not class prostitution as
a crime—that it is not a crime, legally,
excepting where it leads to such acts as
are burthensome to the public ; such as
pauperism, &c., and that, if a prostitute
can prove that she has visible means of
support, she is entitled to her liberty and
must not be molested under the vagrant
SALE OP ALDERNEY Cows.—Ten fine
Alderney cows, recently imported by,
Mr. Thomas Richardson, were sold on
the ith inst., at the Camden and Amboy
Pier, No. 1 North River. There was
rather a small attendance at the sale,
yet the animals brought very good prices.
The highest price paid was $2lO, and
from that down to $llO, which was paid
for a fins bull calf. The whole lot were
sold to persons who reside in this imme
diate vicinity, with the exception of two
heifers, which went to Philadelphia.—
.Arew York Life Illustrated.
ECCENTRIC SUICIDR.—An instance of
extraordinary eccentricity occurred late
ly at Lecure, near Havre. A cap
seen in the water, with a string of corks
around it, used as a label, upon which
was written, "pull the string, I am at
the end of it." The string was pulled,
and sure enough there was the late wri
ter of the label, with a paper detailing
the cause of his haying made away with
himself, carefully corked up in a bottle
in his, pocket, with his name.and address
"Francois Foliot, onrandrimare."
SRARCII POR L LOST CHILD.—A party
okhildren, chincapin hunting, near Ox
ford, N. C., last Friday, were driven
home by a storm, and one of them, a lit
tle boy three years old, son of Daniel
Shearin, was left in the woods. On Sat
urday nearly two hundred persons turned
out in search, and on Sunday a religious
meeting adjourned to assist in the humane
work, making the number nearly five
hundred. The little footsteps of the
lost one - were discovered near a creek,
and its body was found in'the water a
short distance below.
QUEER CUSTOMERS.-A. correspondent
of the Charleston Courier, writing from
Conwayboro', S. C., says :' "I know an
old gentleman aged 73 years, having five
sons, and all have families. Not one of
them have ever owed one dollar, ever
took a drink of . spirituous liquors, ever
used a cup of coffee, ever used prOfane
language, ever was 100 , miles from home,
ever wanted for anything, ever lost his
vote in an election ; are all -Methodists
and Breckinridge Democrats, and hate
snakes and tobacco."
IMPORTANT TO MILLERS.-By a decision
of Judge Pearson, President Judge of
the Court of Common Pleas of Lebanon
county, millers need not pay any license
for their business. They can haul out
their flour, meal, &c., to their customers,
or ship it to Commission merchants at
other places, without taking out a license
for so doing. The decision was made on
Monday a week.
The Coolie trade to Cuba, for the
last year shows that the number landed
was nearly 6,000, and that the whole
number since 1847 is 48,070. The Cool

of Canton, Macao, Swaow, and `Amoy;

upon which the fact is founded is„Ave

The Sail Francisco correspondent
of the New 'York Times relates the fol=
owing theatrical incident ± 'The same
evening, in fact ah hour previous, Sena
tor Egerton, botiog on a bit of a 'tear,'
dropped in at the theatre, and became
highly interested in the play, 'The Oc
toroon.' Iti the scene where the ace
tioneer sells Zoe, and knocks her down
to McClosky at 05,000, and the bystand ,
ers are indignant, he says i 'I can't help
it, he (McClosky) has the law on his side
and must have her,' Egerton, who flat in
the front seat of the dress circle, sung
out, 'd—m the law, $30,000 for her.'—
The Zoe in this case being exceedingly
pretty, the sympathies of the audience
were with the last bidder, and they
shouted, 'the bid is regular, let him have
her.' It took ten minutes to quiet the

Flospital, on the 26th of August, John
O'Brien Shenandoah, a half breed Indi

father, John O'Brien, an Irishman, em

and soon after married a young squaw of
the Stockbridge tribe of Indians, of
whom was born Job n O'Brien Shenan.
doah, in the year 1751. The father be
ing a man of means sent his son to Prance
to obtain a good classical education.—
Remaining there until he had finished
his studies, he returned to . the United
States in the same vessel that bore Amer.
ica's true friend, La Fayette. Young
O'Brien, Shenandoah , was presentt and
took an active part in most of the •battles
which were fought between the Ameri
cans and Hnglish.
II rWe have a telegram from Heston,
saying that, before referees, a suit has
been brought by F. 0. J. Smith against
Professor Norse, to recover five-six
teenths of the amount of money received
by Professor Morse from the different
Governments of Europe for the inven
tion of the.telegraph. The partiesthave
been connected together in the telegraph
business for some, twenty years, and some
time since a settlement was had between
them, when Mr. Smith received $500,000,
and here matters in dispute were left
open for suit or reference, of,which this
is one. The hearing is not finished.
The referees are Judges . Sprague and
Upham and George S. Hilliard,
Arne Norfolk Herald says:
Roger A. Pryor, in his -Ashland Hall
speech, while commenting on the reply
of Mr. Douglas to the secession question
pronounced to him in Norfolk, wound up
with the startling declaration that if a
President of the United States should
have the temerity to use force to prerent
the secession of a Southern- State, or
States, from the- Union, and no effort
from any other quarter should be put
forth to resist the exercise of Federal
power, he, the Hon. Roger A., solitary
and alone, would be the Brutus to plant
a dagger in his heart."
Cr The father of the venerable Jowl
Quincy was named Josiah. His oldest
son is also named Josiah. The oldest
son of Josiah Quincy, Jr., is named Jo

four Josiahs, lineally descended from the
father of President Quincy, are stilt liv

who has filled several prominent offices,
and is the leading lawyer in that State,
belongs to the same stock.
