The crews of the packet ships running be- tween America and Liverpool, have the reputa- tion of being a little the hardest" set of men who live in the forecastle, and of all others those who have sailed in the Black Ball (so 'called from the ship carrying a black ball on a white ground for a burgee.) are noted as being the most audacious thieves on the ocean. I know not how far this prejudice is correct, but it is certain that if a mat) on board any ship is detected in stealing from his shipmates, it is at once decided that he is a Blnck-bflller." and thus the name has come now to mean simply a thic-f S >me years ago I was second mate of a barque bound from Boston to New Orleans. When the crow cnme on board, and just before we bnuled out-! noaeed-. them tough looking" cus omers but after we got to sea they appeared to be orJutly, well-behaved nun. and good stamen, and I had almost for- gotten my fitst unfavorable impression of them, when a comp'laint made to me, by one of the crew, ot numerous thefts which had liecn com- mitted in the forecastle, revived my suspicions, and I at once sinpltd out the three or four men btfore mentioned ns ihe puiltv panics. I did not. however, tell the man whnt I thought, but bid him keep his eyes open, and if lie got any clue to let me know, promising tttf assistance to put to such doings. Without appear- ing to do so, 1 k- pt n clove watch upon the sus- pected ones, especially one of them, a villanotis looking Portuguese, who answered to the nnme of Jose, but without finding anything wrong. The complaints k'pt coming from the forecas- tle, thai various articles were frequently ab- Itracied from tho sailors' chests. Clothing, especially the long kept to go ashore in, money, knives, and worst of all, the sailor's solace and companion, tobacco, were adroitly taken" and as skillfully disposed of. It was a mystery to me nil these things could be I cxploied every accessible part of the vessel. The barque was in ballast, and one rainy day I look several men, in whom I could place confidence, and. under pretence of clearing up some loose boards and firewood in the hold, made a thorough from s'em to stern, but without success, and ihen concluded to seek for a c'ue in another direction, and waited far a fa- votablf opportunity. Soon afterwards a heavy squall came up suddenly, about 10 o'clock at night, and nil hands were called to shorten sail. Afur the men were all out. I sent Thompson, one of the sufferers, and on honest, good fellow, into the forecastle to search in every bunk, and tell -me whnt .he found. He did so, and returned just in time to jump aloft with the rest of us to reef the main topsail. My station course, at the weather ard nrm. and Thompson pressed ahead of ihe others atid placed himself next to me on the yard. After the earring had been made fast, I found a chance to whisper to him. and ask if he had found anything. Yes. be replied I did not flnd any of the stolen property, but in the Portuguese's bunk T discovered a canvas bag. containing a bunch of pick-locks, a carpenter's chisel, and a kind of iron claw, such as store-keepers use to open boxes." Very well said that is M much ight on the subjict; and now, Thompson, keep shady about this, as I may want your assistance again, for I am bound to ciicifmvent the vil- lains, and make them restore what they have taken to the rightful owners. Did you put the bag back in the Yes, sir; I left natUrs stood, and together we ritched upon a method by which to catch the thieves, m the y act. It was this: there an unnccu- h the of which the wen used as kind of store- room for their superfluous bedding, ond as we thought it likely that the rogues would choose the middle watch of the night as the best time for their depredations, we agreed to hide in this bunk, and watch between the hours of twelve and four even night until we could get hold Of uomething tangible, the mate taking his torn whtn it was my watch on deck and I the nest night. We knew that we could both get sleep enough in the day time, and as this was the best plan .we could think of, we began the nelt night. For nearly a week we watched thoa alternately, but without the least success, and we were getting tired of the part we had taken upon ourselves; but we determined to hold out a little longer. One night, after I had kept the first watch, I cajted the mate, usual, a little btfore eight and stowed roys atisfied that Joe had now enlarged-and quickened by study; it moat acquire habta attentive meditfctjocr, frweh can alone give it the capability of thinking on any nuhject. or on any occasion.

But, independently of the wealth, influence, and greatness, industry gains for w, it writs along with it another great advantage--it is conductive to the preservation of health- As everything in nttare preserred ia proper condition, by constant exertion, the mental and bodily faculties of nian. when, in constant exercise, are preserved and but, when unemployed, become dull and hefcvy, as if they had contracted rust By industry alone, then, do we preserve our health and per- fect our natures. The Marquis, of iJpraola once asked Sir Horace Vere" of what Ins brother died He died, sir." replied Sir of having nothing to do." Alas, said Spinola, that is enough to kill any.generil of us all."

I had no doubt but that the tools which Thompson had found were the ones used in opening the sailors' chests but I did not be- lieve that Jose was the only guilty one. and I wished to get abundant evidence before I charged the crime upon any one. Finding it necessary to let my brother officer the mate know of my designs I loM him exactly how viously taken but he only sulkily answered that he knew nothing nbout.it. denying that he had any associates or that he had ever stolen anything before. threatened him. and we tried to persuade him to betray his companions but threats and pel suasions were alike unavail- ing, and we "concluded to let him go for the time, and try some other means to make him speak. We wished particularly to find out who the other thieves were, in to put an effectual stop to their tricks, and also to restore to the sailors what they had lost, as they much needed the clothing. The mate ordered Jose to shoulder a hand- spike, and walk up and down the quarterdeck for the ren.ainder of the watch, and then pro pnscd to me a plan for frightening him into a confession, which I considered a very good one. As it was too late that night to do anything about it, we concluded to wait till the next, and I went below. The next night the port watch, to which, fortunately. Jose and all the other marked men belonged, had the middle watch below, and as soon as they had turned in. I set my mtn at work. The barque carried a very large long-boat, which was stowed amidships was placed right side up. and was full of spare blocks and such stuff, but we soon removed them, and commenced filling the botrt with water. I formed the men into lines, as is sometimes done at a fire, and while four stout hands drew up the water in large canvas draw-buckets, the others passed it along to the boat. It was a slow job, and we worked as fast as we could for nearly two hours before it was completed. We next rigged up a tempo- rary platform by 'he side of the boat; and some four feet above the gunwale, by placing the carpenter's bench on four barrels, and boxes on top of that. This done, I called the mate, as had been agreed upon, and he and I went into the forecastle! We found Jose asleep, and the mate forced his mouth opon, and I wedged it in that posi- tion with a piece of wood whittled for the pur- pose, to prevent his making an outcry. We then blindfolded him, bound his hands and feet, and taking him out ot his bonk, carried him several1 times around the deck, to confuse him, and then laid him on his back upon our We then mounted the bench and told the truth, we carried him back to his bunk and left him. still bound while we has- toncrl t-r everything to its former condition. The next rooming the captain called the three men above mentioned into his cabin, and told them that they had been detected. He assured them that they should be closely watched from that time, and if thfy again transgressed the laws of property, he would put them in irons until the ship arrived at New Or- leans, when he would deliver them to the pro- per authorities. On the other hand, he pro- mised them that if they would not repeat the offence, what had aheady passed should be for- gotten. The men were not entirely lost to a sense, of right, and touched by the captain's kindness, they promised to do better in future. This promise they fulfilled to the letter. They remained in the ship for several voyages, and no better seamen, or better behaved men, ever trod ihe planks. As for Jose, from that event- ful night when he was thrown overboard.be, too, became an altered Lint-of- Battte-Ship. Industry and Perseverance. Napoleon Bonaparte worked so hard that he xhausted the energies of four or five secreta- ries at a time. The same industry character- ised Charles XII. he frequently tired out all his officers. Milton is said from his boyhood. 10 have applied himself to letters, with such indefatigable industry, that he was rarely pre- vailed with' to quit his studies before midnight, which occasioned the weakness in his eyes that terminated in a total privation of sight. New- ton and Lock, also, pursued their studies with unparalleled assiduity. Pope spent his whole life in a studious retirement, which made him frequently subject to severe pains in the head. The industry of Sir Walter Scott is evident, in the number of volumes he a matter itself of unaffected amazement. Byron was in the habit of reading even at his meals. Pliny, the elder, had conveniences for making extracts or memoranda while he was travelling. Seneca said there was not a day in which he did not either write something, or read and epitomize some good author. Petrarch never felt he had passed a happy day unless, during it, he bad either read or written, or done both. The same industry marked the career of Canova tho chisel was almost always in his Martin Luther had the same rigid system of doing something. Not a day passed but he translated at least a verse from the Bible, which soon brought him to the close of a very perfect translation of the whole Bible, a matter of astonishment to all Europe, when the activity and multiplicity of his labors, and tho time he spent in travelling, were considered. By form- ingt he habit of being decidedly industrious every day, many a man has acquired ft great reputa- The Ocean- Although the surface of the ocean is iessj rich in living forms than that of continents, it is not improbable that, on a further investigation of its depths, its interior may be found to possess a greater richness of organic life than any other portion of onr planet. Charles Darwin, in tte agreeable narrative of his extensive voyages, justly remarks that our forests do not conceal w many animals aa low woody regions of tbo shoals, and the severed branches of fuci, tooseft- ed by the force of the waves and currents', and swimming free, unfold their delicate foliage, upborne by air-cells. The application of ttte microscope increases, in the most striking ner. onr impression of the ricB InxuriMifcC rf aniinal life in the ocean, reveals to the tonished senses.a consciousness of the univer- sality of life. In the oce'tmic depths far ing the height of our loftiest mountain chtihs, every stratum of water is animated with poly- gastric sea-worms, Cycltdice, and Ophrydinft. The Inrniniferous animalcules. Mamaria (of the order of AcalepoeJ Crustacea, Peridinia, and circling Noreides, which, when attracted to the surface by peculiar meteorogicil cnditions, convert every wave into a foaming band of flashing light. The abundance of these marine animalcukf. and the animal matter yielded by their rapid decomposition, are sa vast that the sea water itself becomes a nutrient fluid to many of the larger animals. However much this richness in animated forms, and this mnltitnde of the most various and highly-developed microscopic organimn may agreebly excite the fancy, the imagination is even more seriouslyi t might say more solemnly moved by the impres- sion of boundlessness and imeasnrability, which are presented to the mind by every sea voyage- All who possess an ordinaty degree, of tneBWl activity, and delight to create lo themselves nfr inner world of thought, roust be with the sublime image of the infinite when gaxing around them on the vast and boundless sea, when involuntarily the glai ce is attracted to the distant horizon, where air and water blend together, and the stars continually riie and set before the eyes of tho mariner. Thnl contemplation of the eternal play of the ete- mentsis clouded, like every human joy, by touch of sadness and of longing. scaffolding. sto-d beside him, while the men gathered around to witness the sport. Now. sai'l tho mate, in a very tone, we have made up our minds to throw yon overboard, ui.lc-s you answer nil mr qucs- tion. and done wonders. Many, also, by throwing away those odd moments, those little vacancies which occur in the duties of us all, have acquired a knowledge that has made them truly wise, and even done things that have gained them celebrity. Why, then, with such examples before him, should any one, under the impression that he is a genius, throw away his time in indolence To become truly-great. it is not enough that the mind is highly gifted. It mwt bo refined by :t mint AN ARGUMENT FOR MABEUGK the sculptor, writing to a friend of what people call the folly of marrying without the means to sup- port a family, expresses frankly his own fears when he found himself in this very position but he adds with characteristic To tell the truth, however, family and poverty done more to support me than I have to support them. They have compelled me to exer- tions that I hardly thought myself capable of: and often, when on the eve of despairing, they have forced me, like a coward in a comer, to fight like a hero, not for myself, but for my wife and little ones. I have now as much work to do as I can execute, unless I can find some assistance in the marble, and I have a prospect of further commissions." The truth here ex- pressed by the gifted sculptor is like a similar remark we heard not long since, by a man from Boston, who tried matrimony in the same way. and found afterwards that the loose change in his pockets, which he had before squandered in foolish men's whims, as he called enough to sup- port a prudent wife, who, by well economy, has proved a fortune in herself, and- had saved a snug sum of money for her once careless husband. A wife to direct a roan to- wrads a proper ambition and to a general econo- he said, was like timely succor at to save him from destruction on a perilous voy- age." a THE POPE from Washing- ton inform us that letters hare been received there from high sources, announcing the preval- ence of rumors in that the pope may obligen to fly for refuge to this country. Our roinutt-rs at Rome and Naples are said to r- of this contingency as highly Biiflttin. NEWSPAPER!
