"We returned home; my lover up- brailed I retorted we had a shocking quarrel, and ho left the house to write me In a week he was on India; in a twelve-month he had married an Indian lady, as rich as an idol, and thirty Caroline Lillvwhite, spinster."

Now Angflina pretty creature with more goodness m htr than she dreampt as we have indica- ted, this weakness; she must fain and carrying out this will, as a first principle, she had duly fainted through the whole round of the'holidays.

The first and most important step to- wards the accomplishment ot so happy a result, is to make the appropriated lands, in the great region o{ country referred to free ie those who wish to cultivate them. Oould the emigrants, who ar- rived to this country last, year bare found a home in this region, what an Accession to the value of the annual labor of tha country would have been the result; and how much pauperism, crime and misery would have been prevented. If the Peo- ple would refuse to support for Congress every man who is not an avowed friend of the measure of making the Public Lands Free, it would soon find a place on the statute book of the nation. If northern men would manifest half tho devotin to the great cause of Free Land that they do to the question of free ne- groes, they would do more for the sacred cause human Liberty. Freedom of the Public domain is a measure that far weighs the importance of the question of African slavery. It is one upon which the happiness of the white man in a great measuro depends. Wealth concentra- ted is growing more and more oppressive in the densely populated portions of.tbo Union. It seeks to perpetuate its power and influence by legislation, and in ev- ery other imaginable manner. It disre- gards human rights, and looks with cold indifference on the deprivations incident to poverty. It is void of conscience, and is unxious to postpone or disregard im- portant questions of humanity, if their consideration does not enlarge their divi- dends. It compels thousands to yield up their convictions of duty, and gives a portion of its gain to restrain the pen and tongue of those who would willingly la- bor in behaif of tha miserable.

Angelina was very much deeply hurt that Miss Lillywhite should for a" moment associate her own past af- fectation with the real existing weakness then and there before her.

Every occupation, every trade is fill led to repletion, and the spec- ire of want, which sits pre-eminent in all the populous departments of labor, tells us that it would be beUer to raise a fund of half a million of dollars per annum, to send all who wish to go, into the in- terior, on the wild lands of the People, than to expend twice that amount to sup- port them in our alms-houses. A British Statrsman remarked, "let us kill pauperism by sending it out of the country." We need not send it out of the country to kiil it, but simply aid it in getting on the extensive public domain. Take the surplus labor of the United States anl Europe, and plant it on tha rich soil between the and Pacific Ocean, the frozen lakes of the North, and the tepid waters of the Gulf of Mexico. In this region, thus embrac- ed, will be found every soil, every cli- .mate, and almost every variety produc- tion known to the earth. On this almost boundless tract is room enough for the People of Great Britain and Ireland, Gen many, Holland, Italy, and Spain, and the suplus population at the r portions of our country for ages to come.
