Quot in All thing s that have Beauty there is nothing to Man More comely than . When the dance of the shadows at Daybreak is Dowie. And the Cheeks of the pruning Are read with the Sunj a when he sinks in his glory at eve from the View. And Calls up the planet to Blaze in the Blue there is Beauty. But where is the Beauty to see. More proud than the sight of a nation when free when the Beautiful Bend of the Bow is above like a Collar of Light on the be Quot Quot when the in Quot is floating of Feig Quot Quot Quot like a Banner of Silver Hung out in the sky there is Beauty. But Earth hath no Beauty to see More proud than the front of a nation when free. In the depth of the darkness a varied in Hue when the shadows Are veiling the breast of the Blue when the voice of the tempest at Midnight is still and the spirit of Solitude sobs on the Hill there is Beauty. But where is the Beauty to see. Like the Broad beaming brow of a nation when free in the breath of the morning when nature s awake and Calls up the chorus to chant of the break in the voice of the Echo unbound in the Woods in the warbling of streams and the foaming of floods there is Beauty. But where is the Beauty to see. Like the thrice Hallow d sight of a nation that s free when the striving of surges is mad on the main like the charge of a column of plumes on the Plain when the Thunder is up from the Cloud cradled sleep and the tempest is treading the path of the deep there is Beauty. But where is the Beauty to see like the Sun Brilliant brow of a nation when free a night by the Pocono. The Road leading from Wyoming Valley on the Susquehanna to the East on the Delaware crosses one of the most wild rugged and gloomy mountains in Pennsylvania and is called Pocono. There is even at this Day few inhabitants upon it and they live a life of Solitude Hunting and trapping form their principal occupations. Wild and ferocious beasts of nature Roa n Iho Forest and fix their habitations in the huge rocks and caves with which the Mountain abounds. For thirty or forty Miles along the Turnpike Road the traveller s Eye is greeted by two or three dwellings which have the appearance of human habitations. It was in the autumn of 1820, that i was passing Over this dreary Mountain alone and on horse backs the Road at that time being almost impassible for carriages. The Sun had just peeped Over the tall Pines of the Susquehanna As i found myself at the Bottom of the Pocono on the Way to Philadelphia intending to reach a House kept by William Fox where travellers sometimes found accommodations. I Rode All Day without falling in with any company and endeavoured to Chase away the feelings of Solitude which were occasionally creeping Over me by talking to my horse whistling or singing some favorite tune of bygone Days. The curtains of night began to fall around me and Niy horse appeared restive and impatient to attain the end of his journey. Now and then the Distant howl of the Wolf fell harshly on my ear amp caused my horse to prick up his ears snort and press Forward with renewed vigor. All at once i fancied i heard a human voice i looked around and listened but All was silent. Again a Low plaintive Wail like that of a person in distress would reach my listening ears. Could it be a human voice a or was it the counterfeit of the Panther to allure the traveller jaws. It must be that robbers infest these thickets and assume the cry of distress for the purpose of decoding the unsuspecting Ana giving the whole gang an Opportunity to it surely is a human voice. Such were the thoughts that suggested themselves to my imagination As i Rode along catching at every sound. Now a cry half hoarse half gurgling like some one strangling then another slow and suppliant and pitiful would Rise upon the Breeze and fall upon my anxious ear and so tantalize me that i was unable to form any opinion whatever. At length i resolved to diam unt cd i Thicket which stood a few Hundred paces from the Road. I tied my horse to a tree and commenced the task at one time the sound appeared at an immense distance and i almost despaired of finding out from whence it proceeded. Then again it would seem so near me and so like a human voice that i pushed Forward and soon arrived in the Centre of the thick clump of saplings where there was a Small open space. Here i halted and listening to catch the sound Aguin when a Sharp piercing yell issued from a thick copse of Wood some farther on. I now Felt sure it was a Panther and being decoded into great danger turned to retrace my Steps As fast As possible. Just at that moment i Felt something pull me by the pantaloons Quot a is it you a is calling you yonder Why dont you come Quot to Stop and pick up the Little fellow a boy about four years old was but tie work of an instant and just As i left the spot another howl or scream burst upon my ears. I was fully convinced of our danger and pressed Tho Little boy still closer to my bosom. That Ain t a said he after a death like pause amp Clung close to my neck. I did not Stop to ask How he came there or where to lived but pressed Forward to the Road As fast As fear and anxiety could urge me on. I found the horse pawing and neighing so furiously that the sweat rolled from his sides in great drops and he trembled like an Aspen Leaf. He too was conscious of his him and placing the boy before me on Frith my feet firmly fixed in the stir my horse a Loose rein and he darted Indianapolis Satur a april 29, 1837.no. 777. Off with the rapidity of the wind. He had taken but a few leaps when i heard the dry Brush crack but a Short distance behind me and a scream such a one As i never wish to hear again came ringing in my ears and caused my hair to raise my hat Clear off my head. The Panther was in full Pursuit and the yell just uttered was that of disappointment. My horse needed no urging indeed it seemed As though we were Riding on a Chain of lightning so fast did we Fly Over the ground. At length i heard a faint half uttered cry which assured me our enemy had Given by Chase and just at that moment i discovered a simmering Light through the Trees a Short distance from us. As soon m my Little Friend saw it he exclaimed was evidently very ii Ungry and almost despaired of Relief. But Good god what a supper the Panther had made had i not heard the Little sufferer s cries. We neared the Light and my horse dashed into the door of the House before he dared to Stop. His sudden appearance greatly alarmed the inmates at first but As they recognized the boy a number of voices cried Little George a George has come tears and prayers flowed from their eyes and lips As the children gathered around me and the Mother clasped the Little truant to her bosom so choked with grief that she could not utter a word and tears chased one another Down her Cheeks in rapid succession. When she became a Little More composed she informed me that George had followed the larger children into the Field to pick berries and wandered from the others and got lost. The family were in search for him fearing lest he should be devoured by wild basis. The Horn was immediately blown and they soon returned to the House when i informed them of the circumstance that led to his Rescue. The Joy and gratitude i cannot describe. My horse was amply repaid for his fright and services and never did i offer More sincere thanks to the almighty for being an instrument in his hands to Rescue a Little innocent from the jaws of a ferocious animal. Years have passed away since that time but i never looked upon a Bright Little boy without remembering the night of the Pocono. From the Louisville by journal. Look out were infinitely amused with a Story that was told us the other Day a Story unquestionably True. All our readers know with what extreme readiness and with How Little examination the legislature granted divorces during its late session. Certain wags at Frankfort it appears took advantage of this easy disposition of the general Assembly and played off a practical joke upon that honorable body. They handed in an application for the divorce of a certain couple and the Bill As usual was passed without particular enquiry. Some Days after wards a gentleman in a Distant part of the state having read the columns of the Frankfort Commonwealth closed the paper in sur prize and hurried of Quot to his neighbor a venerable old citizen and exclaimed Why neighbor i am astonished i never heard of any quarrel Between you and wife i am lost in amazement Quot Quot a quarrel Between me and my wife Quot ejaculated the old Many Quot what do you mean Quot Quot i mean no offence sir Quot replied the first Quot but i read your divorce in my paper and was puzzled to account for it. I supposed of course that you and aunt Betsy had Quot hark be sir responded the old Man Quot i am seventy years old and my wife is sixty eight we have lived together forty nine years and raised thirteen children and there has never been the first ill natured word Between us in All our lives. Divorce divorce i divorced from my old to mail Why what the Devil has sent you Here with such a Story Quot the neighbor made no reply but coolly took the paper from his hat and handed it to the old Man who with the Aid of his spectacles then and there read to his utter dismay Anoncial statement of j the actual dissolution of the matrimonial Bonds of himself and his wife by the Sovereign authority of the state. The agonies of the poor couple at finding themselves two can readily be imagined. That night they wept on separate pillows but Early on the following Day the Good old souls trudged off for a marriage License paid the fee went before the nearest magistrate and were duly joined a second time to Geilier each fervently praying that the legislature would never again interfere with their con nubian ties. Horrible adventure. Ii asst of a letter from Korkee near Poona july 1836. The writer having been out shoo Ting a to rest under a tree when suddenly he was aroused by the furious baying of his dogs. On ii Niue round i beheld a Snake of the Corradi Ca Lla species directing its course to a Point tha Muld proximate very close upon my position in affix slant i was on my feet. The moment the rept amp became aware of my presence in nautical Phoa logy it boldly brought to with expanded Bead a sparkling and neck beautifully arched the i fed i amp ised nearly three feet from the ground and of Cill Png from Side to Side indicative of a resentful flt a. I seized the nearest weapon a Short Bambi of Eft by one of the bearers and hurled it a head i was fortunate enough to Replie immediately Fil and Lay apparently lifeless. Without a moment s reflection i seized it a Little below the head hauled it beneath the shelter of the tree and very cooly sat Down to examine the Mouth for the poisonous fangs of which naturalists speak so much. While in the act of forcing the Mutli open with a stalk i Felt the head sliding through my hand and to my utter astonishment became aware that i now had to contend against the most deadly of reptiles in its full strength and vigor. Indeed i was in a moment convinced of it Fri As i tightened my hold of the Throat its body became wreathed round my neck and Arm. If the Reader is a Ware of the Universal dread in which the Corba i Capella is held throughout India and the almost instant death which invariably follows its bite he will in some degree be Able to imagine Liat my feelings were at the moment a faint disgusting sickness pervaded my whole Frame As i Felt the Clammy fold of the reptile lightning round my neck i still held the to croat but to hold it much longer would be impossible. Immediately under my grasp there was an inward working and creeping in the skin which seemed to be assisted by the very firmness with which i held it my hand was gloved. Finding in Defiance of my efforts that my hand was each instant forced closer to my face an idea struck me that were it in my Power to trans fix the Mouth with some Sharp instrument it would prevent the reptile from using its fangs should it escape my hold. My gun Lay at my feet the ramrod seemed the very thing required which with some difficulty i succeeded in drawing out having Only one hand disengaged. My right Arm was now trem Bing from Over exertion and my hold becoming less when i happily succeeded in passing the Rod through the lower jaw up to the Centre. It was not without considerable hesitation that i let go my hold of the Throat and seized the Rod in both hands at the same time by bringing them Over my head with a sudden Jerk i disengaged the fold from my neck which had lately become almost tight enough to produce strangulation. There was then Little difficulty in freeing my right Arm and ultimately to throw the reptile Fri me to the Earth where it continued to twist into a thousand a contortions of rage a Gony. To run to the Neil Libring Stream to Lave my , hands ind face in its Cooling Waters was my first act after despatching my form Hable enemy. This concludes a True though a plainly told tale. As a moral it May prove thai when a Man is possessed of determination coolness and Energy combined with reason he a ill generally come off triumphant though he May have to circumvent the subtlety of the Snake or combat the Fei City of the Tiger.

We Are indebted to a highly respectable gentleman for the subjoined correspondence from Mexico. It is highly interesting and important Mexico March 8, 1837. My dear sir knowing your anxiety for any thing in the shape of news from this capital i a gain wait on you with the principal events since my last respects. By the last arrival of the English packet the French minister received instructions from his government to. Demand immediate restitution from this government of the a mount taken from the French citizens under the decree of the Force loan and an adjustment of All other Matt is in controversy. He has not yet Isom a Liia ,.________ thelris gorse Jav minister i am inf it lined Itelia a similar instructions. On the night of the 4th instant the message of the presiden Fifthe United states was received by this government by express Frt m Vera Cruz via new Orleans. It produced a greater sensation in this capital than any circumstance for a Long time. Congress was convened the next Day in secret session. As far As i can learn their action was any thing but favourable to an amicable adjustment Between the two countries. I also hear that the Chambers were discussing the propriety of issuing Privateer licenses and sending them up the Mediterranean by an agent for Sale. The government and people seem to treat the message with the utmost contempt. I am anxiously looking for information from Washington City. Our citizens with capital consider their situation at this crisis critical and dangerous. A commotion has been spoken of in the City for these two or three nights in consequence of the depreciation of the Copper currency which is i was told to Day fifty per cent discount and there was no doubt of this circumstance alone producing a convulsion in this distracted country and our citizens fear a Saqueo if not loss of life. Gen. Bustamente s secret departure for the Northern army is indefinitely postponed. Gen. Santa Anna still remains at his Hacienda do Manga de Clavo waiting the result of events and tie movement of Sua Amigos. The tide of Public feeling 1 understand is making in his favor in every Quarter in the mean time the portals arc flooded with handbills for and against him and against and robberies Are things of nightly and daily occurrences As usual.

My dear sir i had the pleasure of addressing you on the 8th instant via Tampico. On the morning of the 9th there was Manifest distrust through the capital about 10 o clock the government published a Bando relative to the Copper Coin reducing its nominal value to fifty per cent discount. About 11 o clock the whole City manifested Strong symptoms of commotion collecting near the Palace and Market place the dense mass of poor miserable leprosy moving about like the Waves of a troubled sea driven to desperation by the depreciation of the millions of valueless Copper currency the government have issued. In a few minutes after 11 there was a general Rush through the streets and All doors were instantly closed and barricaded expecting a Saqueo. In the mean time the troops made their appearance and Cannon were drawn out in the Plaza de Pala Cio and about 12 o clock the military succeeded in restoring Tranquillity and the government issued threatening handbills through the City against any persons who should refuse Copper at the fixed value and the governor of the City another ordering All doors opened under a Fine of 8200 to those who did not. A regular patrol was established through the City and kept up until this morning. All is quiet but by no Means settled Down so. Saturday Lith 12 o clock it walked out to the portals met a mexican gentleman who told me the country was on the eve of a bloody , and that not i could aver wretched policy of the present has one should enter an office a Church or a Mill a brought the country to this lamentable condition. Without first knocking. The next thing to be done when he is in is to talk awhile to each compositor. Then he must by All Means read All the Man Usaj it which is in the of lice.

I aided my Friend with his and passed out the Back Way passed through the turbulent to the Plaza de Palacio before which opposite to the president s apartment were several thousand leprosy crying out that they could get nothing to eat with the Copper. I passed on to my office from the window i observed the Market place one mass of people. In a few moments the troops charged and fired on Themi the scene that followed was thrilling a men women and children were seen flying and screaming in All directions. In the mean time thousands were collected near the Cathedral in the Plaza and about two o clock Tho populace commenced throwing stones at the stores at the North Corner of the Portal by the parian and broke in All Tho windows of 20 or 30 stores French English anti americans. Having no instruments to Force the Massy doors of the stores or courts the military suffered this with impunity pleased that their attention could be turned from the Mise of their misery the government to the foreigners against whom they cried out with every opprobrious epithet. All is apparently quiet again Strong patrols cavalry and foot Parade through the City but can it last the poor ragged wretches have had nothing to eat to Day All shops Are closed it is now 7 p. And there is no Prospect of any thing further if a dreadful Saqueo does not take place it will be by interposition of a merciful Providence. If it does take place the foreigners will be the Prin Cipal victims. A a general Santa Anna is still at his Hacienda. Congress have been in secret session Ever since the message of the president of the 6th ult. 6 p. stage has just arrived from Puebla that City was yesterday in the revolutionary condition of the capital. There they have a More degraded population if possible than Mexico. You May Well sympathize few your countrymen now in this unhappy country. A Max icon March 15, 1837. Dear sir i had this pleasure on saturday Niht sunday morning we had another revolutionary movement. Foreigners houses were attacked by the populace and All their windows broken. In some houses in the port is they were not dispersed until some were killed by the soldiers. On saturday Many were shot and lanced. Tho much excitement pervaded the whole capital on sunday they were kept Down by the troops. On saturday disaffection manifested itself a Mong the latter As the government were in Are rears to them they succeeded in procuring funds from the merchants and paid them off. Otherwise they would in All probability have joined the myriads of robbers and murderers which compose about three fourths of the population and the City would have fallen a prey to a dreadful and merciless Saqueo there is not such a licentious population in the world As in this place and Puebla and their prejudice and hatred against is Tangeros is daily encouraged by the padres. On monday night it was understood that the troops were to proclaim general Bustamente die Tator and beside the regular patrol in All the streets extra guards were at the Corners of the streets. No person was allowed to pass without being overhauled at 11 at night the officers wailed on the general for his assent but he would not yield to their views. They have demanded the resignation of or. Corro the president and interim and i hear that he sent it to Congress yesterday but they could not form a quorum and i have not heard whether Congress acted on it to Day or not. It is said Thep will not accept it As his fanatic principles suit tie party who have a majority in Congress. General Moran was spoken of As his successor but he is too Liberal. Alaman also but he will not suit the troops. Texas and the United states matters Are All swallowed up and France in the bargain in our Domestic affairs which Are daily growing worse. Yours truly amp a. A from ivies came advertiser. Gear Jackson and the floridian. We of come tins go Gazsi Isi be of the Letl Iii. Of our Washington correspondent an account of general Jackson s vehement denunciations of the Floridi aaa to the Hon. Jos. White who Visi to o Teu him at the Ann against another draft being made upon the people of Middle Florida for More troops. Ave give below a letter from or. White himself upon Tho subject addressed to the editor of the Florida general no doubt was almost As passionate As were messes. Wise and Peyton in the committee room. But then they had no right to swear the president had a Light they could do wrong the president could do no i wrong a seriously it would not have looked Well for any other president than Gen. Jackson to have used such language to an honorable representative in Congress in relation to his constituents. Washington feb., 1837. Dear sir having written three letters to the Secretary of War on the subject i called to Day in person to see the president to protest against any further draft on Middle Florida and to suggest that they would have enough to do to protect their own frontiers. He declared he did not believe that Jesup had made any draft or a Call for one wanted evidence of the fact denied that Florida had Ever had a brigadier general s command in the Field and then becoming excited he said Quot let the i fined cowards defend their country Quot that he could take fifty women and whip every Indian that had Ever crossed the Suwanee and that the people of Florida had done less to put Down the Wai or to defend themselves than any other people in the United states. He said they ought to have crushed it at once if they had been men of spirit and character.
