The extent of the territory so acquired is regulated by established principles in the Law of a Tina the first of which gives the Rivers Anda heir tributaries to those civilized nations who have discovered Tfir Mouths and the second gives title half Way to the settlement of the nearest civilized Power. Either of these principles will carry our line As far As 49 degrees. The Possession of the Mouth of the Columbia i i considered a fast importance in commercial Point of View �9 it would secure an immense fur Trade and would open a direct Commerce with California China Japan and the Sandwich and Oriental islands generally. T he importance of this settlement is strikingly illustrated by the fact that the United states have $13,000,000 Worth of pro arty afloat on the Pacific connected with the whale fisheries by which 8,000 seamen Are supported and that it is necessary to have some port at which the ves a May refit after Long voyages.

Great resources of the country and the variety of ways in Wlinich its Possession would be of value to us but we must decline proceeding fur Ihei with matters which however interesting on the score of information Are too extended ill their character to warrant in at present in devoting to them As much of our columns As they would require. Tin duty of giving honest vote. By Obville Dewey. I have dwelt longer than i intended upon this first and fundamental principle of our political morality a that which requires every legally qualified Citi zen to give his Voto at the elections. There is another duty coincident with this which is too obvious to Call Forni Uch argument and yet too often violated to be passed Over in silence and that is the duty of giving an honest vote. Every citizen in to primary act that gives its being and character to the government is to express his honest conviction. The vote demands the contribution of his mind of his avid gent of Fttie Rotum and Fidelity to Iho common weal. Tho Iii zen Tho real governor. And if the elected ruler is forbidden by every just principle to swerve from an honest towards the Public go Ltd so is the ruling elector. And he who surrenders his judgment or conscience to private interest or the Mere dictation of a party to who accepts a bribe or offers one he who in Tho ballot smothers his own conviction or attempts to coerce Ano hers is perjured in the holiest rites which he swears upon his country a altar. Tho Farni parity with which certain transactions at the polls Are spoken of yes palpable infractions of the Luw with regard to the age residence and where a property qualification is required Tho property of voters Tho of Teedon with which parties Cha be these practices upon each other after an election Are facts of evil Omen. And the common defence set up for them is. If possible worse than Tho things themselves. The country we Are constantly told is in danger every nerve must be strained every Means used to carry certain measures the opposite party leave no Means however a Lucilious and Des Hirale untried and we must meet them on their own ground and must fight them with their own weapons. Admirable doctrine goes around the whole circuit of parties and lends a handle to cach one wherewith to push on the cumulative argument for dishonesty and intrigue the county in danger and to be by Corrus it lion by bribery false swearing and the violated Low Tho nation sick and prostrate by Tho tampering of some ignorant administrator and How to be cured by the canker and the Ganger up that Are gating out its very vitals away with such altering and paltry arguments for the expedient against the right if it must be so i had rather my country wore destroyed by truth than saved by fals Hood. I would rather it were ruined by virtue than redeemed by corruption. But do not the very terms of this statement show that it is not so no Quot honesty is tile Best policy Quot for Man or nation for individual or party nut if honesty is any where to be demanded or expected in is in the first act thai gives its character to the government the elections. Admit any false principles Here und what in consistency can you look for but u corrupt government will you x i son the Fountain head and Chi it act the Stream to be pure i insist then that the a Lector shall be honest. Lie should no More dare to to false to his mind false to his conscience in giving his Vole than he would in giving his word. His Voto is his word and the Only Woid perhaps that he can speak in Tho great ear of the nation. If that word is a lie he sacrifices As far As in him is. The right of government and rectitude of Tho country. The unknown Painter. One Beautiful summer morning about the year 1820, several youths of Serulle approached the dwelling of the celebrated Painter Murillo where they arrived nearly at the same time. Al or the usual salutation they entered the studio. Murillo was not yet there and each of the pupils walked up quickly this easel to exam Nice if tie paint had dried. Mendes with a careless air approached Bis easel when to exclamation of astonishment a soaped Ilia and he gazed in mute Surprise on his of Anima on which was roughly sketch a nut Beauty in head of the Virgin but the extra Auto was to Admi Nible Ihu Liusea so Clear the contour so re Cefulu that compared with the figures by which it was encircled it seemed at if some Beav Eniy visitant had descended among then a a what is the matter said a rough voice. The pupils turned at the sound and All made a re a a Coful obeisance to Tho great master. Look Sotor my Quot Illo look exclaimed the youths As they pointed to the easel of Mendez. Who has painted this who has painted this head Gen Lennen asked Murillo eagerly. Speak Tell me. He who has sketched the Virg in will one Day be the master of us All. Murillo wishes he had Lone a touch what delicacy what skill Mendez my dear Pupil was it you no Senor replies Mendez in a sorrowful tone. A was in you then Isturiz or Ferdinand or car Loe but they All gave the same reply a Mendez. It could not however come Here without hands said Turillo impatiently. This is certainly a curious Aluir gentle Nen Obs ived Murillo but we shall soon know who is a hit nightly visitant. Sebastian he continued addressing a mulatto boy about fourteen years old who appeared at his Call did i not desire you to it Leep Here every night yes master said the boy with timidity. And have you done so yes master a speak then who was Here last night and this morning before these gentlemen came Seak slave or i la Mahe you acquainted with my Dun Ieon said Murillo angrily to the boy who Contin de to twist the band of his browsers without reply Iii. A you Don t choose to answer said Mure hopi lying his ear. No one master no one replied the trembling Sebastian with eagerness. That is false Murillo. No one but me i swear to you master cried the mulatto throwing himself on his Knees in Tho mid lie of the studio and holding out his Little hands in supplication before his master. Listen to me pursued Murillo. I wish to know who has sketched this head of the Virgin and All the figures which my pupils find every morning Here on coming to the studio. This night in Pince of going to bed you shall keep watch and if by to Morrow you do not discover who the culprit is you shall have Twenty five strokes from the lash. You heart i have said it now go and grind the colors and you gentlemen to work. It was night and the studio of Murillo the most celebrated Painter in Seville his studio which during the Day was so cheerful and animated was now silent us the grave. A single lamp burned upon a Marble table Aud a Young boy Whoso Sable Hue harmonised with the surrounding darkness but whose eyes sparkled like diamonds at Midnight Lent against an easel. Twenty five lashes to Morrow it i do not Tell who sketched these figures Ond Pehlps More if i do. Of my god come to my Aid und the ii la mulatto threw himself upon the mat which served him for a bed where he Lori feel Fai t a sleep. Sebastian awoke at Daybreak it was Only Tine o clock any other boy would probably have gone to sleep again not so Sebastian who Hud but Jil Iree hours he could Call his own. Courage courage Sebastian he exclaimed As he Shook himself awake three hours arc thine Only three hours then Tiofil by them the rest belong to thy master slave. I of me us least be my own master for three hours. To begin these figures must be effaced and seizing a Brush he approached the Virgin which viewed by the Bonfi Light of the morning Dawn appeared More Beautiful Liun Ever. Efface this he exclaimed a Flack this no i will die first. Efface this they dare not neither dare i. Not that head she breathes she Speaks it Steij if her blood would flow if i should offer to Effa of and that i should be her murderer no no rather let me finish it scarcely had he uttered these words when seizing a palette he seated himself at the easel and was totally absorbed in his occupation. Hour after hour passed unheeded by Sebastian who was too much engrossed by the Beautiful creature of his ten cil which seemed bursting into life to Mark the flight of time. Another touch he exclaimed a soft Shade Here now the , there it opens those eyes they Pierce me through a what a forehead a what delicacy of my Beautiful and Sebastian forgot the hour forgot he was a Slavo forgot his dreaded punishment All All was obliterated from the Soui of the Youthful artist who thought of nothing saw nothing but his Beautiful picture. But who can describe the horror and Consten it lion of the unhappy slave when on suddenly turning round he beheld the whole of the pupils with his master at their head standing beside him Sebastian never Onoe dreamt of justifying himself and with his palette in one hand and his brushes in the other he Hung Down his head awaiting in silence the punishment he believed he justly a merited. For some moments a dead silence prevailed for if Sebastian was confounded at being caught in the commission of such a flagrant crime Murillo and his pupils were not less astonished at the discovery they had made. Murillo having with a gesture of the hand impost silence on his pupils who could hardly restrain themselves from iving Way to their admiration approached Sebastian and Coo dealing his emotion said in a old and severe tone while he looked alternate la from the Beautiful head of the Virgin to the verified slave who stood like a statue before him. Who is your Staater Sebastian a you replied the boy in a voice scarcely audible. 1 mean your drawing master said Murillo. You Tenor again replied the trembling Slavo. A it cannot be i never gave you lessons said the Auto Nahed Painter. A but Vou g�i4 Toai Berh and i listened to them rejoined the boy Mebold edited by the Kindne a of Bis master. A Aud have done better than listen you Hawe pro fitted by them exclaim aged Murillo unable Lonj a to conceal Hie admiration. Cie Allemen does Ihm boy Merit Putin Mentor r�w�ik4t no at Tho word punishment Sibins Tialii a heart but Quick the word Reward gave him a Little Job rage but fearing that his ears deceived hint Ite looked with timid and imploring eyes towards Hia maa Terv a Reward Senor cried Tho pupils in a area thu that is Well but what shall it be Sebastian big ii to breathe. A ten ducats at least a Sawl mend i. Quot fifteen Quot cried Ferdinand. A no said Goi Zahs a Beautiful new dress for the next speak Sebastian said Murillo looking at his slave whom Nono of Toliese rewards seemed to move Are these things not to your taste Tell me what you Wiah for Antn so much pleased with your Beautiful compose Ion that i will Grant you ony request you May make. Speak Don t be afraid a of master if i dared and Sebastian clasp Ioa his bands fell in the feet of his Nuster. It Wae easy to read in the half of ening lips of the boy and his sparkling , some devouring thought within which timidity prevented him from uttering. Voith the View fat of encouraging hint each of the pupils Sun fester sumo fifi Vor for him to demand. Conne take courage said Murrillo gaily. The master is so kind to Day said Ferdinand half aloud t Wouri risk something ask your free Dom Sebastian at these words Sebastian uttered Aery of an a Guise and raising his eyes 10 Hii master be exclaimed in a voice choked with sobs a the Freedom of Ivy Fott smrt a and thine Ulso said Murillo who no longer a ble to conceal his emotion threw his Arma around Sebastian and pressed him to his breast. A your Pencil he continued shows that you have Talent your request proves that you have a heart the artist is this Day Coo Aidar yourself not Only As my Pupil but As my Eon. Happy Murillo 1 have done More than paint i Hava made a Painter. Murillo kept his word and Sebastian Gomez letter known under the Namu of the mulatto of Murillo became one of Tho most celebrated Pat Otera in Spain. There May yet a seen in the Chu Rebea of Seville the celebrated picture which he had bean found painting by his master also at St. Anoe admirably done a holy Joseph which is extremely Beautiful and others of the highest Merit.
