The Poet’s master theme is beauty, With sprightly wit and modest a i r ; And each, as if it were his duty. Makes out the lady very fair. With eyes of hazel’s softest hue. With pearly teeth and ruby lips. And pure as pearly drops of dew, The modest flower so gently sips. But mine shall be no fictions lay. No love-sick melody be mine ; But truth as pure as dew in May, Shall these imperfect lines combine. In childhood’s days I roamed the wood, ^nd culled the flowers so gay. And found, although both sweet and good. They withered in a day. Thus have I sought for friendship true. That fadeth not with time : Say, Phebej have I found in you, A friend to claim as mine ? Or have you, like some persons gay. That I’ve in Memory’s view. Banished each thought, now ybu’re away, And^hanged to some one new ? But no ! I will not^hink it’s so ; I’ll dream you won’t forget. And though to other scenes you go. You’ll think that we have met. And sometimes, when you are alone. With nothing else to do, Then think of time that now has flown. And vanished from your view. Recall each pleasant hour that’s past. When Pleasure flew on rosy wing, ' And though it was not long to last. I t may a source of comfort bring. Your view of happiness is bright. Your future skMS clear, .A.nd there is n o u ^ t that tells of bb'ght. Or bida youlF llSart to fear. No disappointment’s withering blight Has been thy lot to bear, Thus shrouding all thy hopes in night. And hiding all that’s fair. And may you ever thus be borne O’er Life's tempestuous sea. And never have a cause to mourn. That you have met with me. But may our friendship brightly burn. Fanned by Religion’s breeze, Until we reach jtiie mouldering urn. Where droop the willow trees. And on the Resurrection morn. May we in light appear, With our young friendships newly born. And banished every tear. M. S. S. Salisbury, Conn., Sept., 1S4S. 8 ^ AOENT8 WANTED, to solicit cu ^ r ip t io a f far ••Tcml valuabl^^blieattoB*. A Might with a Duelist. A duebvas fought near the city of Wesh ington, under circumstances of peculiar atrocity. A distinguished indiviual challeilged his relative, who was once his friend. The challenged party having the choice of weapons, named muskets, to be loaded with buckshot and slugs, and the distance ten paces ; avowing at the same time his intention and desire that both paities should be destroyed. They fought. The challenger was killed on the spot ; the murderer escaped unhurt!—Years afterwards, a gentleman was spending the winter in Charleston, South Carolina, and lodged at the same house with this unhappy man. He was requested by the duelist, one evening, to sleep in the same room with, him, but he declined, as he was very well accommodated in his own. On his persisting in declining the duelist confessed to him that he was af/aid to sleep alone ; and as a friend who usually occupied the room was absent, he would esteem it a great favor if |he gentleman would pass the night with him. His kindness being thus demanded, he consented, and retired to rest in the room of this man of fashion and honor, who some years before had stainediiis hands in the blooH of a kinsman. After long tossing on his unquiet pillow, and repeated half stifled groans, that revealed the inward pangs of a murderer, he sank into slumber ; and as he rolled from side to side, the name of his victim was often uttered, with broken words that discovered the keen remorse that reyed like fire on his conscience. Suddenly e would start up in his bed with the terrible impression that the avenger of blood was pursuing him ; or hide himself under the covering as if he would escape the burning ey® of an angry God, that gleatned in the darkness over him like lightning from a thunder cloud! For him there was “ no rest day or night.” Conscience, armed with terrors, lashed him unceasingly, and who could sleep ? And this was not the restlessness of disease, the raving of a d ^rder-ed intellect, nor the angaish of amaniae struggling in chains I It was a man of intelligence, education, health, and influence giving up to himself—not delivered over to the avenger of blood, to be tormented before his time ; but left to the power of his own conscience, suffering only what every one may suffer who is abandoned of God ! A JVcrd to Apprentices —Apprenticeship is the most important stage of life through which a mechanic i^ called to pass ; it is emphatically the spring season of his days, the time when he is sowing the seed, the fruits of which he is to reap in after years. If he spare no labor in ifs proper culture, he is sure of obtaining an abundant harvest, but, if, in the cultuj:^ of the mental soil, he follow the example of many in tilling the earth, and carelessly and negligently does his work, like them he will find the seeding time past, and his, ground bringing forth onij' weeds and briers. Let the young ap prentice bear in" mind, when he commences any business, that all hopes of sucess in the future are domed to fade away like the morning mist, unless he improve the season Let him bear in mind that he can become master of his business, only through the closest application and the most persevering intdustry ; and that unless he does master it, he may bid farewell to all visions offuture prospect and sucess. The apprentice is the foundation of the great mechanical edifice, and surely if the foundation of a structure be not firm, the structure itself crumbles and falls to the earth. Then, young friends, persevere; be studious and attentive; study well all the branches of your business, both practical and theoretical—and you will not fail, when you shall come to take an active part in life, to be of use not only in your own particular buisness, but to society. [Let every apprentice attentively follow the above advice, and when his time is out, he will virtually possess the value of $1000 to begin business on his own account.] Turnips and Phrenology, W e find the subjoined rich anecdote in the “ Phrenological and PhysioWical Almanac for 1849,”' published by Fowler Wells, New York, and sold by Merill & Young in this city : “ In April, 1821, a medical gentleman in Edinburgh, aided by a landscape painter, fashioned a turnip into the nra^ett tet-ern-hlance to a human skull, which their combined skill and ingenuity could produce.— They had a case made for it, and sent it to Mr. G. Combe, requesting his observations on the mental talents and disposition &c., &c., which it indicated ; adding that it was a cast from the skull of a person of uncommon character. Mr. C. instantly detected the trick, and returned the cast, with the following parody of “ The Man of Thessaly,” pasted on the coronal surface : There was a man in Edinburgh, And he was wond’rous wise ; He went into a turnip field, And cast about his eyes. And when he cast his eyes about, He saw the turnips fine ; “ How many heads are there,” said he, “ That likeness bear to mine ? “ So very like they are, indeed. No sage. I’m sure, could know This turnip-head that I have on. From those that there do grow.” He pulled a turnip from the ground ; A cast from it was thrown : He sent it to a Spurzheimite, And passed it for his own. And so, indeed, it truly was His own in every sense ; For CAST and j o k e alike were made All at his own expense. The medical gentlemen called on Mr. Combe next day, and assured him that he meant no ofience, and intended only a joke. Mr. C. replied that he treated the matter as such ; an I that if the author was satisfied with iiis shAe of the w'it, no feeling of uneasiness remained on the other side.” ----- ---- ^ ^ .Swindling on a large scale.—We have reason to believe, ^says the St. Louis Republican,) that a splendid scheme of swindling, in the counterfeiting of soldier’s land claims, is on foot. If our suspicions are correct,*the plan is to get blank claims, with the accompanying letter of John L. Edwards, printed in the same kind of type, and upon the same paper as those at Washington, and then to fill tlieni up in strict accordance with the original and genuine certificates. Potqto^s.—From observation and pretty extensive inquiries, we are convinced that the'potatoe disease has been much Jess destructive this year than last. In but few localities thftt we have heard injured , while in general little or no harm has been done, the yield is said to be less than in former years, but it is not certain that this fact, if it be one, has any connection with the disease.— Jour, of Com, Cando'.—The shortest and surest way to live with honor in the world is to be in reality what tve would appear to be.— Sooratea, JJolititol. Besolutions, Passed at the late Democratic State Convention, held in Hartford, September m h , 1848. In accordance with the wishes of many of our subscribers who reside out of town, we have finally concluded to publish the Resolutions of the late Hartford Convention, Resolved, That this !^epnblic has advanced in power and prosperity, under the guidance of Democratic Administrations, and Democratic principles, and that a review of its history but strengthens our determination to adhere to that great party, which has sustained the honor of our beloved country in peace and war. Resolved, That the people of this Union are indebted to the Democratic party for the defeat of a corrupt whig Bank ; of an unconstitutional and proffligate Distribution scheme ; of a wicked Bankrupt Law.; of an unjust and oppressive Tariff \ c t ; and of other schemes devised by the Federal party, in violation of the rights of the people, and subversive of their interests. Resolved, That the silence of the whigs in regard to these their darling schemes, prove that they are conscious of their unpopularity ; and Whig measures having thus been put down by the people, it only remains to them in the coming campaign to award to the known friends of these measures, the same fate. Resolved, That we rejoice in the accession of Territory recently acquired from Mexico ; that it is the deliberate opinion of this Convention, that this Territory being free, must so remain, in the absence of any positive law to the contrary; that the jyas-ent action of a certain sectional party is as uncalled for, as it is dangerous in its tendency, and that we will leave this question as we find it, fully satisfied that the people of the Territory will call for and acquiesce in such laws as are in accordance with that fundamental law of the land, the Constitution of the United States. Resolved, That as members of the great Democratic party, as lovers of the Union, earnestly desiring the maintenance of our free institutions, and the upholding of our constitution and its compromises, we indignantly frown upon the late attempts of certain designing and disaffected politicians, to organize upon geographical distinctions a sectional party, which strikes at the very existence of our goverment, and menaces the integrity of the Union ; that the Democracy of Connecticut have no sympathy with this dangerous movement, and say to their brethren throughout the Union, in the words of the illustrious Jackson, “ Rest assured, fellow-citizens, that the men found busy in this work of discord, are not w’orthy of your confidence, and deserve your strongest reprobation. Res'^hei, That whije we are proud of the military reputation of General Taylor, and of his eminent services in the just war with Mexico, which has recently terminated. we feel bound to oppose in every honorable manner this candidate of the Native American ^and Whig parties, because he is totally inexperienced in civil affairs: because he knows no other life than that of the camp ; because he has not yet formed his opinions on certain political topics of interest, and because he declares that he has laid it down as a '‘‘principle." to keep the people ignorant of such political opinions as he does happen to entertain. Resolvtd, That the long civil experience, the eminent services, the acknowledged ability, the well known demoratic opinions, and the lofty American feeling exhibited by the Hon. Lewis Cass, entitle him as the nominee of the Democratic Convention to our united support, and the Democratic party of Connecticut will rally enthusiastically in favor of their cause and their candidate, agains^ijjle broken and dispirited cohorts of whiggery, and the motley array of fanatical abolitionists supported by their new allies and converts. Res"lved, That the nomiiwtion of Hon. William O. Butler as Democratic candidate for the Vice Presidency, receives our unanimous approbation, and that in voting for Cass and B utler, we shall be proud to sustain two illustrious American Democrats who have always defended the honor of their country, and have supported her rights on the battle field and in the Natioa-al councils. Resitlved, That we unanimously recommend to the people of the State, the following named gentlemen as candidates for Electors for the offices of President and Vice President of the United States: [See Ticket for Presidential Electors, under the editorial head of this paper,] As an evidence of the manner in which Van Buren abolitionism flourishes among the democracy of Ohio, we may mention that the “ Cincinnati Signal,” J. W. Taylor’s paper, is 1ss dead as a ddor-nail, that paper and the “ Herald,” having been merged recently in the sickly Cincinnati Globe. This is«the ” second death,” the Signal has experienced. We copy from the Times a sketch of Col. Seymour’s speech. The convention appointed a committee to wait upon .him.— On entering, he was received with enthusiastic applause—the convention giving “ three hearty cheers for the Hero of Che-pultepec.” Col. Seymour said he felt grateful for the manifestation of regard that had been this day extended to him by his Democratic friends. He had not expected it, and he could hardly give utterance to the feelings that burst upon him, as he realized the kindness, and the favors of his political friends, and the manner in which he was received back among his former associates, from his duties in a foreign land. Gentlemen, you have confided in my political integrity, and I accept the favor you have tendered ip me. Your confidence shall not be abused. More than one year ago, I left with the New England Regiment for Mexico, and was politically one of your number. 1 have not changed my sentiments, amid all the trials aud changes which have fallen to my lot to pass through ; but, gentlemen, I have seen good 9ause for holding more firmly than ever, to the principles of our Democratic fathers. My faith in the principles of the Democratic party has been strengthened during my absence, from what I have seen and heard. He rejoiced to find on his return, the ranks of the Democratic party unbroken. He had been nurtured in the ranks of the Democracy, and had never seen cause to regret his political principles. Col. S. then alluded to the Presidential candidates, speaking iu high terms of L ew is C a ss, commending him as a true Democrat, an eminent Statesman, a talented, honest man worthy of the support of every Democrat. Our opponents have nominated a strictly military man as their candidate—one who has ha^^no experience in civil life. Col S. did not'approve of any such policy. He H'ould not support any man for the Presidency on the ground of his military glory alone. When such policy is established, if ever it should be, we shall have “ military pronunciamentos” to govern us in lieu of the ballot boxes. He would render to Gen. Taylor the credit to which he is entitled on account of his military services.— But he would not place him in an improper position—one which he would not be well fitted to fill with honor. Our votes, fellow-freemen, belong to the man who is capable of filling the high trust of the Presidential oflice in a manner that shall promote our honor and preserve our interests—one who has had experience enough in National affairs, to make his decisions safe. We ought not, injustice to ourselves and in view of our solemn oaths as freemen, to vote for any man who is not well fitted by experience in civil affairs, and by natural talent to fill that responsiple post of President. Now, sir, continued Col. S., the old soldier Gen. Taylor, frankly admits his inexperience, his incompetency. He says that he has never even voted in his lifetime ! His practical education has been in the field alone, it j s not enough—not equal to the re.^pon-sible place for which he is nominated.— Daniel Webster admits all this. Such is not the case with Lewis Cass. His long services in the cabinet, in the Senate chamber, in the halls of legislation, as Governor of the territo ^ of Michigan and as minister to one of the first nations of Europe, have eminently fitted him to fill any station in our government to which the people may call him. He is sound in principle and a high order of talents to discharge the duties of President to the satisfaction of the American people. Gentleman, the Democratic party is strong in its princples. If a few have fallen off’, it will incite the masses to rally with greater energy. “ Their loss shall be our gain,” Gentlemen, what party is it that has made our country greater, happier, better 9 We all know it is the Democratic party.— Would any of you give up Louisiana ?— Florida ? Texas ? No, gentlemen, you would not. Would you surrender the territory of California and New Mexico, recently acquired ? Certainly not. These acquisit-ons would never have been made, but for the Democracy. You recollect,, Mr. President, when you held a seat in Congress, you voted for Texas. Your heart was’ in it. I recollect your reply to some timid men who told you that to vote for Texas would ruin you. It was this—“ I must do my duty and trust to results. „ I shall vote for Texas.” Look at Texas now sir, with her schools, churches and improvements. • Look at the blessings that have followed annexation. Will they ruin you, or any man ? the Sabine to the Rio Grande every foot of land is under good government. Col. S. said he came unprepared to speak —but his heart was in the cause, and he would labor to promote it from this day to' the election. (Loud cheering.) Tau Buren’s Dream. B 7 lB £ N R r SCHXI.. On his pillow, one evening, at Liiidenwidd ileep-in?, Lay false Martin Van Buren, in stillneM done ; When there suddenly up to hit bedside cadwereep- •ng. A Patriot, whose glory in majesty sITone«^ In his hand was the chart that made heoie iode* pendent, And made sacred by toil, and the red stNun of life! Lo ! he spoke! >twas our JxyrxBSON’s TOice that had sounded, When emotions of fear the deceiver betrayed ; “ Ah btehold !” said the Patriot, “ thy dreaou are confounded. Thy repose is disturbed, and thy splril’i afraid ! Well, well thou dcservest the curse of the nation, For attempting to sever this charter in twain ; I despise thee, Apostate ! and thy degradation. Hence shall brand thee more deeply and darkly than Cain!” The Apostle of Liberty then disappearing, riie perfidious dreamer his horror allayed ; When before him another great sUtesman rearing ' A bright scroll, which his wisdom and geniu^bad made! ’Twas America’s bulwark—a free Constitution, By vast myriads cherished—by patriots blest; The broad shield that protects against all ditsolct. tion— The rich tints on our banner—the star on ita crest. There he stood ! but no sound yet the stillness bad broken— His contempt, was to great, too find utteranca then ; But there lurked in the sleeper a tongue that bad ' spoken, For the Demon of Guilt, broke his slmnbera again! Blackest hatred so tainted bis HXAXT with dia> union, Hot revenge so* bedinumd all his honor and feme— That the spirit of Madisoit, spuming cemmtt* nion, Soared in haste from a couch, overshadowai with shame! The Boston Post has this : Who says that military qualification is not' sufficient title for the presidency ? Ans. Henry Clay! Quest. Who says Taylor has no other qualification ? Am. Daniel Webster! But again was a third lofty figure seen standing, • Upon whose whitened locks was the finger of age— From whose eye came a sternness bold, pier^iof, commanding, That s.amped him a hero, a patriot and silgel By his side hung the ajvord of his country’s pro* tection— * On his brow were the laurels that fnemeD entwined ; From his bosom peered gratitude’s holy reflection— In his breast, pure devotion to country, lay shrined I There he was ! and no champion of glory stood greater, In that lone, darkened chamber, where treach^p ry slept; - From the awe-spreading scenes of which Arnold the traitor. Away naighl ^pfre shrunk, and in solitude weptj But the iron-nerved J a c k so n , met treason as fu r . less, And as bold a i he did all his stmggTn in war, But tfte eye of the ingrate no longer was tearless, For he saw in his dreams the old Hero once more. “ Yea, indeed, may’st thou weep !” said the Hermitage spirit, “ For thy tears have their flow, from a conscience that’s rung; Hadst thou faithful remain^, the fresh garland* «f merit • Soon thy countrymen over thy name would faav* flung 1 But dissenr.b!ing invited their just malediction. And now odium sequels thy history’s page ( So with these, the rewards of thy vile derileetion, I will leave thee, and loathe thee, thou curae of the age I" Thus concluding this glorious oM soldier departed For his lovely abod«t^with the honest and brave^ Upon whom wild ambition ne’er burst poison-hearted.
