By this time the vessel had struck on the outer Breakers and her foremast and main Topmast had gone Over her sides.

These improvements thus counteract the hazards of our expanding population. They solve the great problem of free institutions How to create a Central Power at Poiure not too Strong for Freedom yet Strong enough to Rte Ditc vigorously to the extremities i hey have in fact revealed at least that deep political secret that we May Widen without weakening our Empire. This meeting recall. A singular illustration of that truth. When the present Union of the states was adopted its dissolution was confidently predicted from the want of cohesion in its extended parts which would Render the habitual assemblage of Coli Gryss utterly impracticable. Quot Arhat Quot said one of the most distinguished writers of England in 1788, Quot what but some extraordinary emergency Captain Solomon Juniji it or from Havre bound to new York and that major Downing was on Board a passenger. You May readily conceive that this announcement furnished the Quot wrecker s daughter Quot a full cargo Back to the wreck for nearly every Man on the Beach insisted on going off to lend a hand in saving the most valuable articles on Board. After two or three trips the Captain Crew mrs. Passengers were safely landed and immediately conducted to the Pavilion where every Comfort was furnished to them. The major on Landing introduced capt. Jumper to the Crew and capt. Jumper in turn introduced major Downing to such As had not before seen him and Sulci a shaking of hands and Huz Zainat was Niver seen or heard of the grand lower times. I am Happy to inform you that the major is in perfect health and Tho he landed As wet As a Dock rat is As Happy As a Bird.

Quot the hand that wiped the tear of want the heart that melted at another s woe. Were his and followed David Avent Ortii had the kindest of hearts. There was neither mete nor Bond to his Benevolence except inability. And Happy were any men who had a tithe of the prayers that were Oil ered up for the a Elfare of my Friend by the Una Orlu Nule and wretch ii whom his hand had relieved i speak of prayers for it was the Only Reward he sought Ami of course the Only Reward he obtained i mean Here but i forgot. David was paying till cations to an excellent Young lady of his native was wealthy Beautiful and accomplished and Conse gently had Many suitors a id among them there were Richer and a in traction i mean and Han Sonier men than Duvid but n Importe there was a kind of i rank hearted Streight forwardness about my Friend that could not fail to carry him some vat re near the heart of his discerning mistress even if an emperor had been his rival. The Young lady in question hit upon a project to jut the character of her lovers to the test. She had come across a poor widow with a family of distress in one it f her benevolent excursions and the idea struck her that it would be a Good Oppio Quot Unity to ascertain the stuff her lovers were made of. Letters were Ibert with indicated setting Forth the Good woman s Lale Antl forwarded ii the Dio Erent Gen Lemon in tie Wal us. D name requesting an answer a my assistance.

This was i rom one Olio had great Raj Uta Ion for beige Vuletich who had taken a Leat Littig Uirt in charitable associations and whose Pharisaic Al liberality had been blazoned in the Gazette. The lady thought that interested As he was in the Success of these institutions he displayed a very commendable reluctance about taking the Buoi Ziess out of their hands. A tii ird from a Good Hailei Quot generous kind of a fellow enclosed her a five Dollar Bill with his compliments. Several look no notice of the Good widow s a let Ilion. Buttliere was another ans or which i the l Idy it a with far Dipiet ent feelings. It was from David from Oslo a year and 1 need m t say like himself kind and consoling. It spoke of like writer s narrow Means Ami also of the a principle he had adopted of never giving in los persuaded of the worthiness of the object and concluded by requesting an interview. Quot if said he i find myself otherwise unable to Wilbrd the assistance you require i Trust 1 May be of service in Iii Giesting others in your Bel Ralf. Nor was this Meic profession. For it was but a i new weeks before the Willow found herself comfortably located and in a thriving Little business Comuni minced ii the recommendation and carried on by the Aid of my Friend. And All this was done in genuine scripture style. There was no sounding of trumpets and the right hand knew not the doings of the left. But his lady love was a silent observer of his con Luct and he received Many a Kiihul Glaive in this Quarter of of which i he Little Susji cycled the cause. She began to think that the Thomaj c of a spirit Ike his was not to be do spite and she i he something very much like a palpitating heart As she questioned herself respecting his intentions. Such was the train of thou Dit which was one evening As is often the Case interrupted by a Call from the very a Jurson Olio had been its cause. Hour Afier hour passed by that night and still David lingered lie could not tear himself a Way. She is a fascinating creature thought he and Good As she is Beautiful. Can she Ever be Miner a Cloud came Over his Fine features As he set for a moment in silence i his suspense must be ended he at length thought. He started As the clock tolled eleven. Y of certainly think me tedious said he Vith a i aint smile but i have been so pleasantly engaged As to Lake no note of time. And the sin of this trespass upon the rules of Good Breeding must lie at your door. Besides Quot have Lens heed this visit he continued after speculation a fact. A Day or two since a Friend of ours a merchant in this City was hailed in the Street by a tall rough looking fellow very plainly attired in Linsey Woolsey cowhide boots and Slou Cheil hat who accosted him with hallo there mister i say Airit your name a that is my name sir replied the merchant.
