When Are we happiest when the Light of morn wakes the Young roses from their Crimson rest when cheerful sounds upon the fresh wind borne till Man resumes his work with Blither zest while the Bright Waters leap from Rock to Glen Are we the happiest then alas those roses they will fade away and Thunder tempests will deform the sky and summer heats bid the Spring buds decay and the Cleir sparkling Fountain May be dry and nothing Beautiful adorn the scene. To Tell what it hath been. When Are we happiest in the crowded Hall. When Fortune smiles and flatterers Bend the knee How soon How very soon such pleasures pall How fast must falsehood s Rainbow colouring flee its Poison flow rets Brave the sting of care. We Are not Happy there. A Are we the happiest when the evening Hearth is circled with its Crown of living Flowers when goeth round the laugh of artless mirth and when affection from her Bright urn showers her richest Balm on the dilating heart Bliss is it there thou Art of no not there. It would be happiness almost like heaven s if it might always be those brows without one shading of distress and wanting nothing but eternity but they Are things of each and pass away they must they must decay those voices must grow tremulous with years those smiling brows must Wear a tinge of gloom those sparkling eyes be quenched in bitter . And at the last close darkly in the Tomb if happiness depends on Thern alone. How quickly is it gone when Are we happiest then of when resigned to or our cup of life May brim when we can know ourselves but weak and Blind creatures of Earth and Trust alone in him who liveth in his mercy Joy or pain of we Are happiest then. From the new York Star. When Samuel Humphreys Esq. The architect of the ship Pennsylvania saw the proud Monument of his skill the Waters of the Delaware it is said he exclaimed As he wiped the perspiration from his brow Quot they have her Quot the anecdote suggested the following Hasty lines. Quot they have they have Hei the Waves Over which she will ride the boast of our country our glory and Pride she has kiss d the Broad Waters Success to her prow. The Queen of the sea s in her element now. They have her when tempests shall angrily Rise and the storm spirit hang its Black pall o or the skies when the winds loudly whistle through the rigging and sail May the Good ship triumphantly ride on the Gale. They have her should War Brave his Arm for the fight god Speed the Brave ship which for Justice and right shall Awe with her thunders the foes of the free who dispute her proud course o or the limitless sea. They have her of Long May that Banner of stars the glory of freemen their soldiers and tars wave in Beauty and peace at her Mast head on High As its azure Gem d folds seem to blend with the sky. Firmly upon the Earth began to chant the death song of tie Warrior. A moment after the Piasa Rose in the air and Swift As the Thunderbolt darted Down upon the chief. Scarcely had he reached his victim when every Bow was sprung and every Arrow was sent to the Feather into his body. The Piasa uttered a wild fearful scream that sounded far Over the opposite Side of the River and expired. Oua Toga was Safe. Not an Arrow nor even the talons of the Bird had touched him. The master of life in admiration of the generous deed of Oua Toga had held Over him an invisible shield. In memory of this event the image of the Piasa was engraved on the such is the Indian tradition. Of course i do not vouch for its truth. This much however is certain the figure of a Bird Cut into tiie solid Rock is still there and at a height that is perfectly in accessible. How and for what purpose it was made i leave for others to determine even at this Day an Indian never passes that spot in his Canoe without firing his gun at the figure of the Bird. The Marks of balls Are almost innumerable. Near the close of March of the present year i was induced to visit the Bluffs below the Mouth of the Illinois and above that of tie . My curiosity was principally directed to the examination of a Cave connected with tie above tradition As one of those to which the Bird carried its human victims. Preceded by an intelligent guide who carried a Spade i set out on my excursion. The Cave was extremely difficult of Access that at one Point of our Progress i stood at an Elevation of More than one Hundred and fifty feet on the face of the Bluff with barely room to sustain one foot. The unbroken Wall towered above me while below wag the River. After a Long and perilous clambering we reached the Cave Wlinich was about fifty feet above the surface of the River. Whatever extent men of Genius have been Aristo sciatic they have been so in spite of their Genius not in consistency with it. The instances Are so few and their deviations from the democratic principle so Small that men of Genius must be considered As included in the democratic class. G enuf being rare and its claims but tardily allowed by those who attained greatness by other Means it seems As if the weight of influence possessed by the aristocratic parly by that parly which generally speaking includes the wealth learning and talents of the county a must overpower All opposition. If this is found not to be the Case if it be found that the democratic party has achieved every thing that has been achieved since the United states Constitution began to work it is no wonder that there is panic in Many hearts and that i heard from so Many tongues of the desolation of the Quot levelling spirit Quot and the approaching Viii of political institutions. classes May be distinguished in another Way. The def Cristion which Jefferson gave of the Federal and Republican parties of 1799 applies to the federalist and democratic parties of this Day and to the aristocratic and democratic parties of every Lime and country. Quot one Quot says Jeffer Eon Quot fears most the ignorance of the people the others the selfishness of Gulcis Independent of there is much reason in both these fears. The unreasonableness of parly lies in entertaining one fear and not the other. No argument is necessary to prove that rulers Are prone to selfishness and narrowness of views and no one can have witnessed the injuries that the poor suffer in old countries Llie education of hardship and insult that them with their Only knowledge of the highest classes not so much of books As of Liberty and Law. In old countries the question remains open Wilether Llie Many should on by the Aid of a Long pole placed on the project account of their ignorance be kept still in a Slat ing Rock and the upper end touching the Mouth of the Cave we succeeded in entering it.

The Broad Mississippi Lay before us Calm and smooth As a Lake. The landscape presented the same Wildas Eclas it did before been seen by the Eye of the White Man. The roof of the Cavern was vaulted the lop of which was hardly less than Twenty feel in height. The shape of the Cave was irregular but so far As i could judge the Bottom would average Twenty by thirty feel. The floor of this Cave throughout its whole extent was of Huaian Bona. Skulls and other Huaian boxes were mingled together in the utmost confusion.

No part of the United Stales not even the picturesque Highlands of the Hudson can vie inthe Quot wild romantic with the Bluffs of Illinois. On one Ide of the River often at the water s Edge a perpendicular Wall of rocks rises to in height of some Hundred feet. Generally on the opposite Shore is a level Bottom or Prairie of several Miles in Width extending to a Sio Iuar Bluff that runs parallel with the River. One of the ranges commences at Alton and sex lends with few intervals for Many Miles along the left Bank of the Illinois. In descending the River to Alton the traveller will observe Between that town and the Mouth of the Illinois a narrow Ravine through which a Small Stream discharges its Waters into the Mississippi. The Stream is the Piasa. Its name is Indian and signifies in the language of the Illinois Quot the Bird that devours near the Mouth of that Stream on the smooth and perpendicular Bluff at an Elevation which no human Art can reach is Cut the figure of an enormous Bird and the Bird which the represents was called by the indians the Piasa and from this is derived the name of the Stream. The tradition of the Piasa is still current among All the tribes of the upper Mississippi and those who have inhabited the Valley of the Illinois and is briefly this Many thousand Moons before the arrival of the Pale faces when tie great Mega Onyx and Mastodon whose Bones Are now dug up was still living in this land of Green Prairies there existed a Bird of such dimensions that he could easily carry in his talons a full grown Deer. Having obtained a taste of human flesh from that time he would prey upon nothing else. He was As artful As he was powerful would Dart suddenly and unexpectedly upon an Indian Bear him of into one of the caves of the Bluff and devour of warriors atle pled for years to destroy him but Vithous Success. Whole villages were nearly depopulated and consternation spread throughout All the tribes of the Illinois. At length Oua Toga a chief whose Fame As a Warrior extended even beyond the great lakes separated himself from the rest of his tribe fasted in Solitude for the space of a whole Moon and prayed to the great spirit the master of life that be would protect his children from the Piasa. On the last night of his fasting the great spirit appeared to Oua Toga in a dream and directed hint to select Twenty of his warriors each armed with a Bow and poisoned Arrow and conceal them in a disguised spot. Near the place of their concealment another Warrior was to stand in open View As a victim for the Piasa which they must shoot the instant he pounced upon his prey. When the chief awoke in the morning he thanked the great spirit and returning to his tribe told them Hia dream. The warriors were quickly selected and placed in ambush As directed. Oua Toga offered himself As the victim. He was willing to die of Bis tribe. Facing himself in open View of the Bluff he soon saw the Piasa perched on Tho Cli Drew up Bis Manly Corr to its utmost height and planting he feet the distinctive principles Par j ies. From miss Marlitte axes society in America in the United Stales As elsewhere there Are and always have been two parties in politics whom it is difficult to distinguish on paper by a statement of their principles but whose course of action May in any Given Case be pretty confidently anticipated. It is remarkable How nearly their positive statements of political agree while they differ in almost every possible application of their common principles. Close and continued observation of their agreements and differences is necessary before the British traveller can fully comi resend their Mutual relation. In England the differences of parties Are so Broad Between those who would have the people governed for the convenience of rulers those who would have the Many governed for their Good by the will of the few and those who would have the people govern themselves that it is for some time difficult to comprehend How there should be party differences As wide in a country where the first principles of government is that the people Are to govern themselves. The Case however becomes Clear in time and amidst a half a Century of Quot crises Quot the same order and sequence become discernible which ran through the whole course of human affairs. As Long As men continue As differently organized As they now Are there will be two parties under every government. Even if their outward fortunes could be absolutely equalized there would be from individual Constitution alone democracy in every land. The fearful by nature would compose an aristocracy the hopeful by nature a democracy were All it bar causes of divergence done away. When to these constitutional differences Are added All those outward circumstances which go to increase the fear and the Hope the Mutual misunderstandings of parties Are no longer to be wondered at. Men who have gained wealth whose Hope is fulfilled and who fear loss by change Are naturally of Llie aristocratic class. So Are men of learning who unconsciously identifying learning and Wisdom fear the Elevation of the ignorant to a station like their own. So Are men of Talent who have gained the Power which is the fit recompense of achievement Oread the having to yield it to numbers instead of desert. So Are Many More who feel the almost Universal fear of having to part with occasional prejudices with doctrines with which honoured teachers nourished the Pride of youth Atul repossessions interwoven with All that has been to Vliem most pure lofty and Graceful. Out of these a la be aristocratic class must every where be formed. O it of the hopeful the rising not the risen the aspiring not the satisfied must a still larger class be every where formed. It will include All who have a nost to gain and least to lose and most of those who in the present state of Edural Ron have gained their knowledge from actual life., rather than or As Well As from books. It will include moreover an accession Small in numbers but inestimable in Power the men of Genius. It is characteristic of Genius to be hopeful and a Piring. It is characteristic of Genius to break up the artificial arrangements of conventional ism and to View Mankind in True pm a spec Tive in their Gra inherent rather than of adventitious a Orth. Quot Genius is therefor essentially democratic and has always been s p Ali Tever titles its i id ones Navy Nave worn or on whatever subject they May have exec in a a their to their condition and by being educated in schools or whether As yet other maintain the exercise of political rights and duties be not the Only possible political education. In the new world no such question remains to be debated. It has no Large degraded dangerous while class who can afford the slightest pretence fora panic cry about Agrari Anim. Throughout the prodigious expanse of that country i a no poor men except a few intemperate ones. I saw no very poor women but god and Man knows that the time Bias not come for women to make their injuries even heard of. I saw no beggars but two professional ones who Are making their Foru Irnes in the streets of Wash Inton. I saw no tables spread in the lowest order of houses that had no meat and bread on Dom. 3ry factory child carries it acid pig Drivers Wear spectacles. With tie exception of the foreign paupers on the sea Board and those who Are steeped in sensual vice neither which classes can be politically Dnn Cerous there Are none who have not the same interest in the Security of property As the richest merchant of Salem or planter of Louisiana. Whether the less wealth ii class will not be the first to draw out from reason and experience the True philos pity of property is another question. All we Hunt to do with now is their equal interest with their Richer neighbors in the Security of properly in the present state of society. Law and order Are As important to the Man who holds lands for the subsistence of his family or who earns wages that he May have land of his own to die upon Aslo any member of the president s Cabinet. Nor is there much More to fear cram the ignorance of the bulk of most of the people in the u. Stales than from their poverty. It is too True that there is much ignorance so much so As to be an Ever present As a whole the nation is probably belter informed than any other entire nation it cannot be denied that their knowledge is far inferior to what their virtue require. But a those ignorance is it and ignorance of what if the professors of colleges have Book knowledge which the owner of a log House has not the owner of a log House has very often As 1 can testify a knowledge of natural Law political rights and economical facts which the College professor has not. I often longed to confront some of each class to see whether there was any common ground on which they could meet. If not the Otie might bring the charge As justly As the other. If a com non ground could be discovered it would have been in their equal relation to the government under which they live in which Case the natural conclusion would be that each understood his own interest Best and neither could assume superiority Over the other. The particular ignorance of the countryman May expose him to ice flattered and cheated by an oratorical office seeker or a dishonest newspaper but on the other hand the professor s want of knowledge of the actual affairs of the Many and his educational biases Are just As Likely to cause him to Vole contrary to the Public interest. No one who has observed society in America will question the existence of the evil of such ignorance there but neither will question that such real knowledge As they have is pretty fairly shared Ornong them. Sons though not always to Square my conduct by them. The first is to distrust the correctness of my own opinions upon every thing prospective and conjectural a the second never to flatter myself that Ray opinions will have any influence upon the action of any other human being. Thus in the present condition of our country i have very decided opinions of the past a differing perhaps considerably from yours a certainly differing from those Ofa Large majority of the people of the United slates. And As our views of the expedient action of the future might in a great degree depend upon Llie conclusion log which we have co Cupon the past it is impossible that the measures which i should deem the the Only effective remedies for our complaints should be acceptable to the ruling Power of the country. I am and during a great part of my Lile have been in a minority. It is the business of the majority to propose and accomplish measures. It is too much the practice of minorities to expend All their energies upon devices to be feat the measures of the majority. The question of Rio it and wrong so far As my experience goes is of use to either party Only for the purpose of making professions. Ave Are now in the midst of a National bankruptcy occasioned by the insolvency of the multitudes of individuals. We Are now told Itiat All the Banks in ii United Stales have suspended specie payments and what is the suspension of specie payments but setting the Laws of properly at Defiance if the president and directors of a Bank have issued a million of Bills promising to pay five dollars to the Holder of each and every one of Iceni the suspension of specie payments is by one act the breach of one million of promises. What is this but fraud upon every Holder of their Bills and what difference is there Between the president amp directors of such Bank and the skillful artist who engraved a Bank Bill a fac simile of the Bill signed by the president and directors and save them the trouble of signing it by doing it for them the Only difference that i can see in the two operations is thai the artist gives evidence of Superior skill and Superior modesty. Ii requires More Talent to sign another Man s name than one s own and the counterfeiter does at least his work in the dark while the suspenders of specie payments Brazen it in the face of Day and laugh at the victims and dupes who have put Faith in their promises. You ask what is to be the remedy for jigs state of things there Are two remedies Bolli of which May be practicable. One is that the Congress of tie United states should exercise ils to regulate the currency but they must do this which i they will not with soul consulting Banks their presidents and directors. The legislature of new York and Virginia have already Hovyn a it hot the president Ami Dirc Ciora of Hanks will advise. And i a proposal of the president of a broken Bank in Charleston s. Carolina to begin with an amendment to the Constitution granting Powers to Congress which have already been granted to them and which they have exercised to the great Benefit of the nation is an insult once to our understanding and upon our Nistor tunes. As Little do i relish his other proposal of a general convention of broken Bank presidents and directors to enlighten Congress with their advice a a convention of bankrupts to teach Congress reverence for the of ligation of contracts and How to make nothing but Gold and Silver a tender for the payment of debts a of All remedies for existing evils tie last i would resort to would be a spurious Coin from the mint of nullification. The other remedy which i believe practicable is that of Solon a sponge upon the account of debtor and creditors wipe out All old scores and begin again. This is the hard Money system of the present administration it is to detach the government from All banking and Deal in nothing but the precious metals. Of or. Van Buren is made of stuff logo through with this operation i wish him Well out of it but he will want other co operators than the legislature of new York and Virginia and other advisers than presidents or directors of broken Banks or land jobbers upon Loans from Deposit Banks. I think of this As i thought of the dry Dock gunboat restrictive anti Navy system of or. Jefferson. It Cost the nation a terrible War to be delivered of that but the nation was effectually cured of its hydrophobia. Tho Wai was a drastic purge but intellectually worked its cure. T fear that our present bankruptcy will need a still More violent course of Altema lives but the cure will come when the people Are prepared to receive it. They Are certainly not so now they will most probably not be so during the remnant of my term of life. I Hope you will live to witness and enjoy the convalescence. Forgive the Freedom with which i have answered your letter and believe me to be wit ii great respect your Friend and servant. J. Q. Adams. From the Cincinnati Gaz cite. John q.
