Weep not for her!

Weep not for her BOUNDARY OF OBEDIENCE. Much of the unhappincss of domestic life is tho consequence of tho very mis- taken idea that implicit obedience is tho j duty of women. This idea gives man such a high idea ci'his own prerogatives, I thai u woman, unless siiu be vory i'oitun.- ,ate in her connections, is forced either openly to rebel or else lo cringe and fawn for the sake of peace. It is the duty of servants to obey their employers, as well as wives lo obey their buslituids; but the obedience of both those classes is quite subordinate to their other moral duties, and is, in the lowest of them all and why Simply for the vory good reason that all their other mora! ave sanctioned by lhat inward monitor which cannot direct them wrong; where- as this is embodied in the commands of a mortal always weak and often erring: ofcoursc, then, whenever thoy unfortun- ately come in contact the latter must nnd ought to give Hugo Reid's Plea for Woman.

Us ofa Military Life. AN ELEPHANT'S PULSE. There; chanced to be a female elephant and her calf stationed not far from my tent. 1 carried the j'oung one a large basin of sweet tea after breakfast one morning, into which ho dipped his trunk, and drained the contents in an instant; and perceiving his mamma looking on wistfully, I procured her one also, which i she drank with much gusto. Soon aficr this introduction we became great friends and the mother and her son wjru regular pensioners of my tea-pot; the lady per- mitting me to take many liberties with her parson, such as toying with her deli- cate car, scratching her neck, or brush- ing away with a green bough tho flics lhat annoyed her, and giving mo now and then a hug about the waist with her trunk, which in no instance exceeded ihe reasonable warmth of a friendly embrace. One morning, when she was particularly affectionate, I took a fancy to feel her pulse; and when handling her grop- ed for an artery at the base, nnd noted the number of pulsations in a This was twenty fourjand J need scarce- ly add that there was nothing feeble in frankness and magnanimity hull lio (bund that one bill ofono j ilollnrs had been overlooked. His laTchord, know tho d thought it a but if it. was col- lectable at a.11. a Yankee, then dunning a lodger in another part of Ihe room wojlcl 'armtiy if out of the man.' Calling linn up. therefore, he inlrovluced, Inn-. I who showed him thoaccount. 1 Wai, 'Sri nre, taint nvicli use 1 gu'css. 1 knur that critter. Vou as well try to squeeze lie out of The Liunksr Hill monumfiil, as to c'lecl a dob; o' But any how, whal'll you give I do sir, the bill is one hundred dollars. Til give I'll give you half, if yui; collect it.' (irued replied the collector; 'there's nn liarm in Iryir.' any ways.' Some weeks after, the creditor clnnced to be in Boston, and in walking up Tremonl street, encountered his enterprising friend. 1 Liok'e here paid.he, 1 had consider- able luck with thut bill of your'n. You see I stuck to him like a dog to a root, but for the first week or so twant no a bill If he wasn't at homo, he was short; if In: was at home, I could get no Uv and by, says I after going sixteen tunes, I'll fix you; so I sot doivn on the door step, and sat all day and part of the evenin'; and begun airly next day but about ten o'clock lie gin in. He paid me my half and I gin him up the note.' NATIONAL EQUALITY. We hope, then, it will be plain, that by- asserting the natural equality of all reas- onable .hiurnan beings, we do not at all mean to'advocate any irrational system of levelling, such as that the poor have a right to share equally the property of the rich. We should as soon think of in- sisting that the plain-looking, or the sick- ly had an equal right lo beauty and health with the handsome and the strong; yet such is the meaning attached to equality. Neither do we mean to assert that man and women are strictly the same in their nature or character of mind; but, simply, that in the grand characteristics of their nature thoy are the same, and they differ, it is in the minor features; that they resemble far more than they differ from each other. And by equality we moan equal civil and legal rights such an equality as will prevent tho rich or wise man from having more power over his fellow-creatures than his riches or wisdom naturally give him. And from this rule we can soc no reason whatever for excluding tho female half of the human race. The weaker they are ihe greater is their need of equal rights, tha't they may not fall under Ihc tyran- ny of the stronger portion of their race. Besides all their natural disadvantages, they have at present .a heavy artificial weight to keep them clown in tho scale of society. It that weight wera taken off. they would .only rise to their natural level in society, not one inch above Hugo Reid's Plea for Women. If a look comes from the heart, it will contrive-to reach ihe heart- EXTRAVAGANCE IN OLD a price current published at Philadelphia in 1720 BOIIEA TEA is quoted at fifty shil- lings a pound and WHEAT at only three shillings a it would require nearly seventeen bnshcls of wheat to purchosc one pound of tea.

"HONOR AND SHAME FHOM NO CONDI- TION H. Specie the governor elect of Now Hampshire, was born in North Carolina, and was a carriage ma- ker by trade. He emigrated to N. H., and was distinguished for his mechanical ingenuity, and sot in motion the first pow- er looms in the town of Peterboro. He is a man of sound intellect and honest principles, and his present elevation is a high compliment to his character and at- tainments. following is deci- dedly the best joke of the season: A lady entered a dry good store the other day, inquiring for a variety of ar- ticles, she requested tho clerk to show her some cambric ofa hay color. The clerk inquired, with somo surprise what she meant by that color. replied the lady, 'cambric tho color of your drawers.' 'You are mistaken, said the clerk, 'I don't wear any.' It was some time before the lady could make him understand that she alluded to some store fixtures. nor that it more than intimates that tho support of Mr. Clay requires allack upon and injus- tice towards Mr. V. R., and that it will CNCUSC none of its partisans lhat pursue any other course. These are its tactics. Unjust assault upnn a political opponent, not magnanimity" nor justice, is ils moito. [From the N. Y. Com Atlvcriiscr, March H POLITICAL northern mail brings us ibo following loiter of in- quiry, to which we shall reply with all the frankness and sincerity demanded by the occasion. AVON, Livingston Co., Feb. 21, 184-1. W. L. Stone, Esq pose of settling a subject of debate among some friends, who agreed to refer the matlar to you, allow me to enquire, what ircre the opinions and conduct of Martin Van Duren in early singes of war On what grounds did lie support DC Witt Clinton for the Presidency in opposition to Mr. Madison? And what wtrr. Mr. Clinton's views in relation lo war and continuance? We believe Mr. Clinton to have "been the peace party candidate, nnd lhat Mr- Van Burcn supported him on that ground. Will you have the kindness to set us right, cither by answering it in tho Com- mercial Advertiser, or by letter If by letter, we will not regard it as in- tended for publication. Your answer to the above will much oblige many whig WHIG Washington correspondent of ihe True Sun says that tharoisno cordiality between Webster and Clay, that the former is determined to do all in his power to defeat the election of the latter, and that his letter denounc- ing the annexation of Texas was design- ed to havs that effect. We are sorry il this be so, for we foar that Mr. Cla) wjl be used up before we can get a. chance to beat him. What a musical ihmg this whig harmony is 'ricncls. tbe early slaycs of the war, wu have; reas- on to know lhat they were not exactly in harmony with the majority of the people: of the slate, even of his own parly, at ihe time; for it must hero bo borne in-mind, lhat a very decided majority of the repre- sentatives in Congress from this stale of New York with Obadiah German in the Senate at their head, vot'-d against the declaration of war. Not, however, that it was conceived that he would prosecute ihc impending contest with groalcr vigor, and bring it to a more speedy and hon- orable clot-c than could bo dune by Mr. Madison. This was the ground upon which he was nominated, and upon which he was supported by Mr. Van Quren and such I of (he old republican party as adhered to him through the contest, As tothcopin- ions anil conduct of Mr. V.Uurcti and his held the contest lo be they believed the country wholly unprc- pared for war at the conscquunt- ly that ihe declaration was inexpedient. I Such, probably, were the original views of Mr. Van certainly were i the views of Mr. Clinton, i But the war having been declared, it i is due to Mr. Van Huron to say that no public man in the state supported il More thoroughly, heartily, zealously, through- he did. Such, we know, is nol the received opinion iu many parts of the in the distant sialrs, wo frequently see attempts making 'in the press opposed to him, to render him unpropulur by charging him with opposition to the war itsulf, as well as to Mr. Madison. BUT THE CHARGE IS UNTRUE. Many of our political friends will scowl upon us, we know, for our frank- ness on this occasion. Rut we care- not for lhat. JUSTICE TO ALL .MAX, is our maxim, and not to boatevcn Mr. Van Huron by falsehood. TO THE UNIVERSAL WHIG PAR- TY. ORLEANS, March 3, 1844, To Levi D. Slainn, Esq., Editor of the Plebeian.

He thefe joined in prayer with the cler- gyman farewell lo his ac- quaintances, nnd at half past one, was launched inlo eternity. He embrnced his falc with the utmost composure and fortitude. Neither before nor after he was upon the scaffold was a single mur- mur of regret heard to escape was there, at any time, tlie slightest visi- ble change in his countenance. Within less than an hour before his execution, he smoked a cigar, seemingly will) grcal plcnsuic. His personal vanity musl have been very great. When summoned to the gal- iows, he called for water, washed his face, combed his hair, und, wilh evident satisfaction, surveyed himself in a Aiid, strange as it seems, he was highly pleased wilh his shroud and pantaloons, which were made of fine with black silk ribbon.
