When the prospect of forming a large manufacturing town on the Morrimac River was in contemplation, some of the persons concerned sent up Mr. B-a young  gentleman skillful aa an engineer, and who was also fond of sporting, to view the water privileges carefully, and to make inquiry as to the prices of land in the vicinity, lie went with liia dog. gun and lishing tackel, and obtained hoard in a' funnel's house, a Mr. F.; and spent his time in viewing the fulls, and the canal, and the river, and grounds, with occasional fowling and fishing. After speudingiome time there, in talking with the farmel, one evening he told him, "that he liked the place very well, and thought he should be pleased to come and lire there." The man said "lie should be pleased to have him."  "Well, Mr. I"., what will you take fur your farm'?"  Why. 1 don't want to sell it, Mr. B.; nor would I, unless I can get twice what it is worth, as I am satisfied here, and don't want to move."  "Well F?"  "Why, it is worth $1,500, and-I won't sell i: for less than 83,000."  'That is much,'says B ; 'I can't give that.'  'Very well you need not.' Here the conversation ended. Mr, B. continued his sporting, and having received his instructions, in the course of a few days renewed his task with Mr. F., 'I have made up my mind that I should like to live here very well, and if though you ask much, I wiil take up with your oner, and give you 83,-000.'  'Why, as to that, Mr. B., you did not take my farm when I offered it to you, and I am not willing tosell it for anything less than 86,000.'  You are joking, Mr. F.'  The Indian StlWlSfr.

B. finding he was iletermined, went off for instructions, and the next day told Mr. F. he would give him 86,000. The purchase was made, deed passed, and money paid. Some time afterwards, Mr. B. asked the farmer what reason he had in the course of a few days to double the price for his farm and to insist up it. 'Why, Mr., I will tell you ; a day or two after I offered you the farm for 83,000 I saw two men on the opposite side of the Merrimac River, sitting on a rock, and talking for some time ; then they got up, and one went up the river, and the other down, and after some time they returned, and seemed in earnest conversation for half an hour or more, when they arose and went away.— I did not know what it meant, but I suspected something was in the wind, and I was determined, if you asked me again to sell my farm, I would demand double price.

An I'rkct Position.—A writer m Health very justly condemns the habit of lounging, which a large number of persons indulge, as injurious to he.'thh. lie »nys:  "An erect bodily attitude i.s of v.islly more iinporlnnre to health Ih.-tn people generally imagine. Crooked bodily position?», maintained lor any length el time are always injurious, whether in the sitting, standing or lying position; whether »Imping or waking. To tit with the body leaning forward on the «tomach or to one side, with the heels elevated to a level with tbe head, is not only in bad taste, but exceedingly detrimental to health. It crsrnps the stomach, pr«sses tbe vital orggiis, interrupts the free motions of ihe chest, and enfeebles the muscles of the abdominal and thoratic organ and, in f;ict, unbalances the whole muscular system.— Many children become sightly humpbacked or severely routul-shouldered, bv sleeping with the head raised on a high pillow. When any pernon fiuda it e,a*ier to sit or stand.or walk, or sleep in a crooked posilion than a straight one, such person may be sure his muscular systi in is badly deranged, and the more carelul he is to preserve a straight or upright position, and get back to nature ogain, the better.

" sve honor tbe manliness jof Mr. Archer" (a whig senator) for ad-. vocating tbe doctrine of extending the term | of probation to 21 years for foreigners before llley can become naturalized.'' The Newburg 0;:zette, Nov. 20, 184 4—"Now, the whigs are in favor ol' the repeal of the naturalization laws, the restriction of political power to American hands. Ah we staled before tbe election, this principle will henceforward be inscribed on tlie whig banner. Is it not a whig principle, a principle to be maintained and battled for by whigs as such. We need not desert otir llag to dcfen l it, for it is inscribed in letters of light upon that flag, nnd the f?ct lhat we are whigs pledges us to ils defence and unfaltering support." The Kingston (N. Y.) Journal (whig) say«, '• It is proposed that the probationary term be extended to 21 years before the immigrant is permitted to take part in our elections, and further, lhat no one of foreign birth be eligible to office. We go for these principles without hesitation or abatement." Brooks, of the New York Express, said— ' The victory of the Loc< foeos is the triumph of Irishmen and Gernens over Americans. There must be fewer privileges to foreigners, and more to Americans. In a word, there must he an American pirty to rule America." Clark, the late Whig Mayor of New York, said,  all naturalization laws should be rcpeal-j ed."

The following letter from the Raman Catholic Archbishop of New York, isln reply to Mr. 1. T. Semmes of Louisiana, who had asked tlie Aichbish-op's advice about the duty of the Roman Catholics in the coming election. The answer is discreet and dignified :  Nkw York, Septeniper 17, 1852.  Dv.irSir: I hsre read thmugh, and carefully, the letter which yffn addressed to me, under date of the 11th inst., fii regard to the impending election of President of the United States, aud the part which yon think the Catholic citizens of the republic ought to take in It. The two candidates presented are General Scott and General Pierce. The entire American people appear to be nearly equally divided in opinion as to which of these two will make tha belter chief msgislrate. TM< fact seemes to intimate a general opinion that the country will be safe under the four year's Presidency nf either. As to the Catholics, Ihey have ne»T been consulted as the limited choice between these two. The probability is, that, like their fellow citizens of olhnr denominations, they will be divided —some voting for one candidate, and soino for the other. Like others, they are liable to err ill tliuir choice.  But under all the circumstances, I shotfld prefer voting honestly, each, according to his own  that,  judgement, they should err with the'ininorKy, or (what is equally possible) with the majority of their fellow citizens of all denominations, rather than i-ee them guarded against such danger of erring in their choice of Piesiden.t by any ecclesiastical iutlaenee.  lam sure that with your enlightened mind aud large Catholic education,you uppreclaie the reasons on which this my humble opinion is fonnded, whether oruot you will agree with msin regard to its justice and expediency. In any event, however, I beg leav.i to subscribe myself your sincere and devoted servant In Xt  fJOHN, Archbishop of New York. Thomas J. SEEMES, Ksq.  Geo.
