A SI.NCULAR LOVE AI'FAIR. The Ueluware Gazette toiis a good story of two |)ersoiis saved from the wreck ofthe I'ulu.ski, which we will endeavor to repoat ij a lew words:
Among the passengers was .VIr. Jlidge, a young niun of wealth and standing from New Orleans, who, bt.'ing a stranger to all on board, and feeling quite as much interest in his own safety as in that ol'aiiy other pcison, was in the midst ofthe confusion which followed the dreadful catastrophe, about helping himself to a place in one ofthe bouts, when a young lady who had freqij(Mi'ly elicited his ad-iiiiruti(<n during tlie voyi.j;'. liiit with whom Ik; was toially iiiicictjuaiiiUiJ, a ladod his attemiuii, and he immediately stepped forward tootler hisser-vitx's, and to assist her on board the boat; but in his ^eiierous attempt not only ¡om sight of the young lady, but also lost his place in the boat. Afierwaid when he discovered that the part ofthe wreck on which he (loaled woiild t>oon go down, he cast al)out tor the means uf prc-servaUMii, un i lashing together a couple of seltces an J an cm; cask he sprang on iii'^uiihoi WinioiV havej launched liiniself upon ilio wide ocean.

tiic kluieus, groans, and deuih >.l.u^gles which wore every w here uttered aioiiml liim, he l)egan to feel that his lut was fortunate, and was consoling binisclf upon his escape, siieli as it was, when a )icrson struggling in the wa\es sery near him, caught his eye. It was a wciuaa —und without taking the second thought he ¡)liiuged into the water and brougiit her safely to his liiile i ift, which was hiiidly bullieicnt to keep both their heads and shoulders above the water. She was the same young lady lor whom he had los: his chance in the boai, and for a w hi!e he felt pleased at ha\ ing eifecicd her rescue, but a moniCnt'H lefieoiion convinced him that her rescue was no rescue, and that unless he could lir.d soiiiC more subs'aii'.idl \ossel both must pel ish.
Under these eircuiustanecs he proposed making on eflbrt to get his conipanioii in one of the Imais which was still hovcimg near ihe w reek, but the proposition olfercil so liitiechance o s lecess that she declined,oxpicssmg herwi Ln^jnes- a t le siuieiiino to take her chuuce with him eitlior I'm liliu-or death.

FIRST PERMANFXT Sì:r rMvMlCM' OF
The discussion in your paper respecting the lirs j)ermaneni settlement of Kentucivy, will, I triisi ■xcite some mteie.st in the public mind, which sha. lead to valuable le.sults. It must not bi; coneeale that the people of Kenincky, wiili all theirnndoub ed patrioiism and military ardor, have .shown hi. little interest in literary matters, in festivals, o other inemorals, commcmoiate ofthe bold deeds o their ancestors. 'I'he ilemands id' [ibjaical iiii l>rovement have too much engaged thi'ir legaids lo the neglect of higher and more enduring inieiesi.-riie deep, the eieri;al foundation ofthe peojileV glory, arc their moral and inielleciual triimiphs These shall live when the toils of agrieulture may t)e a waste, and the more exquisite works of aichi-tecture and sculpture exhibit but a crumblini! ruin.
In regard to the immediate object of this eom-munication—to establish place and lime of the first permanent setilement of Kentucky; the facts, as they have come down to us, are loose and desultoi v . i'et, perhaps, are precise enough to determine ihis point of antiqiiorian, rather than historical value. But, in the tir*t place, what constitutes a seitlemeiii ? Is permanency essential to the fact of settlement? i'he term, settlement, is converitble into colony, whether the colony has been pennancni or not. The colony on Roanoke island, upon the coast of iNorth Carolina, was a settlement; and is con.^itanily so lepresemeli, as much as the more favored one u: Jamestown. Vet tl^ one entirely peii^hed, and the uihcr has been the germ of all southeiii and vvoatcrn population in ihe I'liited States. Seiile-nie'inv aithougb implying some tixcdiiess .ind »lability of pui [>oaes, is noi necessarily a pennanent oc-cupaiion. It is something more than a visit, a discovery, or a very temporary occupation. Thus, ilàC judgments of tlic commissioners, under the land law ol \ iigmia, appointed tor Kentucky,deterniined that llie "raising a crop of corn;"' as in the instance of governor Shelby's claim lo h's residence at Knob Lick; "the building ul a cabin;" making corn; each constituted prool of a legal setilement; and entilli;d ihe person, ihus settling, lo the .settlement of 400 aeiea, and pre empiion ol 1000 more. I'oniinous, uumterrupied lesidence, 1 never uudorslood, was required 10 I'orlily lhc.se evidences of leuq.orary setilement.
M.eiit o iho great land company, as thfey were^inff <• build the fortof Boonshorough, were attack^ by 'he Indinns; on the 1st of April the fort was IjeguD and hni.liod on ihe I4th of June following. Thisis a laiihli.l a.ooiait o.»- tin- .•settlement ofthe town of Hoonsl„;r.|^^|il,. .Not a claim of «ettlement, ifofvis-n hrjarrnu ahand.-mwenl since.

Hnrrorl was a member ofthe •onv.Milioti thit assembled at Boonsbo.-ough, May ¿3d 1774; eh,< ted from JJoiling Spring settlement, ow Fountain [iliie, near Jlanodsburg, settled by Isaac an I Abraham llite. (See record of conven-iion, Huiler\s Kentucky, 2d edition, p. 506.) Now >vhat chasm i> there in the set'lement of Harrods-'iii'g, from the building of Harrod's cabin, in 1774? \'one but the |)ossibloone between the battle of Point l'leasHnt,Ooi. 1774, and the May of 1775. In every piobahiliiy./^^/yrc Hoone struck his first blow on the f(jrt at lioi iisborough, but certainly before llie till I w as iiiiivhed.

Wo have heard of love in a cottage—love in the dttcp green woods- nay even of love on the wild imfurrowed praiiie, but love upon a plank in the mid:.t of old ocean wilh a dozen fright lui deaths in view, is something still more uncommon. And yei il would seem that love thus born upon the bosom of the deep—cradled by the ocean wavt—and relined under the fierce boainsofan almost vertical sun—is, alter all, tho very thing. There la about il the Iru« spice of romimoe—the doubis, the hopes, ihe difliculties—ayo and the deaths too, to say nothing ofthe sighs and leara.
