V. li.,I n, as h.r w a ( ii'o\ ill'.', as l.i.  nobly espoused oease with ihis. Scarce had he succeed, aide by side with Washington, in impelling the clouds of war from the Anwrican coast, when we find htm burning with patriotic impatience to secure to his native land the same inestimable blessings which he had beenso deeply instrumental in securring to'us. France had awokje, like some vast giantess from the sleep of ages, and called on her sons to rid her of her chains. At such a call it was impossible for Lafayette to hesitate, and accordingly, with a heart glowing with all those noble sentiments which the nociety and converse of'76'troumt have naturally inspired, wc see him hastening to aid his imploring country, and to bleod with his already blushing honors a .lew and brighter laurel. Soon, through his instrumentally, the secret^ fires, which had so long been smouldering unregarded, burst upon the air with an earthquake shock—tho thrones of her tyrants totter in ruins to the dust— her chains scatter in broken fragments to the winds —and France, lowering in unshackled majesty a-hove the tombs of her fallen oppre.ssors, waves the flag of liberty in triumph, and proclaims to an astonished world her freedom.  But alasPa people without intelligence, and^des-tilute of virtuous principles, are unlit for such a heavenly boon. Who could describe the anguish which wrung the p»>triol'8 heart, when he saw the beacon ho had lit lo guide his country to happiness and glory, changed into a maddening and destroying flame, which swept before it all that was sacred, and all that was of good report in the bonds which nnite society, and transformed his once happy and peaceful country into a wide waste of, desolation and horror, from which a <leinon"'might recoil with sh.:iine! Vet even in the darkest hour of that fearful and portentous period, the uncorrupted soul of Lafayette stood unshaken. Even adinidst those awful sceucs of contusion and havoc, "when" in the words of By ron, ''France got drunk on blood to vomit crime," we still see hi.« firm and majestic form, calm and unruflled amid surroundmg war, pointing, with the same unblenching integrity, his bleeding country to the port of safety, and abandoning her to her dark and hapless fate, only when she turned with an ungratelul hand, and sought the blood of her dearest benefactor.  In endeavoring to detract from the glory which this illustrious individual has reaped, his enemies have attributed his cxcrlion.s in the cause of liberty to an earnest desire of celebrity and fame. But such an accusation I take to bo ilie highest encomium which coultJ be pronounced upon its 'character. That the love of glory was a prominent motive with Lafayette, no one, perhaps, acquainted with his his-tory, will deny. But the glory for which he aspired was the highest and purest which may crown a mortal life. The spark which fired his ardent soul to action, was ;hat iiu(>ianted by the almighty dispenser of tilings in the breast of his noblest ciea-tuies. It is ever the inseparable companion of a great and wel4-regu!ated mind. It is that I'onu-  der choir lift up the anthem ol adoration us it utters its thanks to him whose ever-burning eyo watches over the destinies of nrian, for the ap()earaii< e of the illustrious Lafayette, to break the chain.s of tyran ny and aid in unrolling »he banner <d' liliorty. Let us muse on his virtues, and model our hopes amJ aspirations on the Godlike scale which he tlnough life so successfully adopted.  AM.MAL .MAGNETIS.M.  We had during the evening of Monday, of tli present week, an opportunity, for the first lime, to witness the ctfee.ts of what is termed Animal Magnetism. The iMagnetizer, Mr. Danid Greene, ol Pawtucket, Rhode Ishand. AU.ut half pa.si 8 o'clock, the Magnetizor commencod the operation in pro*-ence of a niimljer ofgentlemeu mi l ludius, i.f |iui-ting to sleep No. 1. She for a few moments .seem ed to resist the influence, but in thecouise of,an hou she became pcrfecUy subject to ihe mystei ious isi fluence—lost all a|)pareiu use of her limbs, and continued in a i)erfectly helpless state for mice thai an hour and a half. While in this state, sh(i appeared the h appiest of tho happv, motionless an. speechless, e.xcept a readiness t.» answer question: which answers indicated a know ledge ot all 'ha was passing around her. Khe. however, having re ceived a few more mannipulaiions that she inigli not have so familiar use with the t.m^ne, as Indic.-aro want to have in geneial, refu>eJ to ansvvei questions, or gave her answers in a (iianner thai indicated an unwillingness and elToit.— WIk-ii a~k ed to raise her hand, she replied, she (;ould not—t. Open her eyes, she had not the jiower. W h..n ha\-ing been sullbred to remain in this state a proni^. length of time, the Magnetizer moved his hund-about her as a wand ofmagie,and in less ilian (jni minute she retumeilto hernatuial stale—Iniglii and wakeful.  No. 2, was magnetized in a slioi t lenp,:h of time. She disbelieved in the |)owerofany body to put hei to sleep—she was streanuous in her lulici—alia humbug. But in about thirty niimites, >he was a second 'sleeping beauty' that adorned the room. Her unbelief was lost in vision. i->lie did not appear to be in so ha()py a staie as .\o. 1; a|ipaientl\ at times being in uisiiess. !She, however, ga\e indications ol'a good subject for e.xp. i iin.'iiting iijion /Vfter having iiiHgnetism throvvn oil'.vh aiuu-e I, much to her wonder and extraordinary suriu i-.e, she had been imgnedzcd. She walked acioss tiro loom. and seating her.-elf, the Mngnniizer t<x)k a seat by her, and taking lier by tbe h.ind, he willed her to go to sleep—and it was su\ 'J"he second time she w as brought to herself again, the en<iuiry was mailt;—i^ there any thing in animal magnetism? Her unbelief had iled.  No. 3, was commenced upon—she cvinced inucli uticasiness, with pain in her arms— her dre:,s, ami p.abably fi ip;ht being rather intense, she cuniplain-i d nn;ch of la;r stiunge feelings and weakness— she wassutil'ied tf) remain under ihi; inliiience bni  .KO. 35.  So saying, she lirnid a cover, and lo! the shoulders of the cod nicely boib d, wor»» neatly deposited in a dish; a sight of which would have maile an epicure rej nee, but which ouly added to the ilinature of hi'r husband.  'A pretty disluthi?.! cxcliiimed he.—'Boiled fish! chips an i porridge! Ifyou had not been one ofthe most stnpi.J of w<jinankind, you would have made it i 1 o a c'lowder!  His patient wife, with a smile, immediately placed a tuiccn before him containing an excellent eliowder,  '.My dear,' said she, M was resolved to please you. riieie is your favorite dish.'  'I'^ivorite d'sh, in.ked.' grumbled the discomfit-ted husband, '1 dare say it is nn nnpniatable wishy washy mess. 1 would la her have a ^boiled frog han the vv hole of it.'  'I'his was a common oxi)rei.sion of hii;, and had l)t!en anlicipnted by his wife, who, as^ noon_ a< the .Jieferenco was expresse.l, uncovered a large di«h lear iier hiisband, and there was a large BtJtX nOG, if parlentf)us a.!pcct, stretched out at full length!-Zachariah sjo ang from his chair not a little fiight-ened at the unexpected ajqiarition.

We believe she suliered pu rest spii its in their heavenly ministrations a-round the throne itself of (Jod. It is that'gcncrous and noble emulation which |>ants for c.xcclleiuo in (Jodlike and glo.'ious actions.  This desire of Liiiiiyet'e for a e.xtended and virtuous fume was crow ned bc^y ond its'utmost^'wish. His name has become, throughout ihc world, ihe dearest watchword, of liberty. And long as there is an altar remaining to her worship—long as there throbs a heart with her sacred fire—so long shall that name be considered holy, and its menlion u-rouse feelings of gratitude and reverence too pure and fervid lor e.xpresision, and too deeply engraved upon the soul to be transient or brief. No splendid mausoleum is needed to mark the spot where his ashes are laid—no lofiy monument need pierce the heavens to tell of his deeds or his^virtues. I'llgrmis from every eliine wili come, till ihe remotest centuries, to pay thiMr oi isions around his sepulchre, even should it be unmarked by a single stone;—and in the stU|>cndous fabric of Aiiiericun institutions, there is a monument orecieJ to his memory more lasting than brass or marble—a monument vvhich will perpetuate his name until Nature herself shall expire, and the rock-ribbed and ttcrnal nionutuin-i be scttilered in dusl lo the winds.  Thus far, fellow-citi/.ens, you have seen the character of this extraordinary man as he stood in h boldest relief. Vou have seen him the ardent and enthusiastic follower of liljei ty, and have seen him the distinguished friend and coadjutor ol Wa-hing-ton, leading a giunt arm to your assistance in your hour of darkest liial. 'I his, imlei'd, is sullicient to entitle him to your admiration, and gratitude; but It is nol so to do his memory justice.

Throughout all the vicissitudes of his long and eventful lilio, we never find him deviating 111 the slightest degree from the Strictest lino of rectitude, und never in the least com-promiaing thai stern and unbending integrity which must ever maik the hero. Uhetheras the tenant of the prison, or the lord of the palace—whether ■» the eloquent leader uf a unate, or the boll ofthe battle in whatever situation he may have been placed, we shall ever find him bearing alike misfortune and pios|>ority with a calm and unrepining fortitude, and regulatiug his ootnducl in tbe inosl rying crisis by the purest principle's of virtu«. But if, in Ihe collected grandeur of auoh a character, there was any one point of view in which he shone brighter than another, that point was in the ca|)acity of an individual and a iiwn.

One day asZacariah Hodgson was going to hii daily avocations after breakfast he |>urclia.'ed a lin. large codfish, and sent it liome v\ iih directions to lii-> wife to have it cooked lt>r dinner. As no partictilai mode of cooking it was presciiberl, the good woman well knew that whether she boiled it or made it in to n chowder, her husband would scold her when lie came home. But she resolved to please him once, if possible, and thercfoie cooked portions of it in several ways. She also, with somn little difli-culty, procured an amphibious animal from a brook back ofthe house,and plumiicd it into the pot. In due time hei husband came home—somo covered dishea were placed on the table, and with u fruwii-ing faultfindiag look, the moody man commenced the oonvaraaiion.
