No. 48. Printed and published by n. Jolton amp. To. Livingston Indianapolis. It must be extremely Gratifying to those of our citizens who became residents of Indiana at a time when it was the abode of Quot half naked Savages and illiterate foods Quot Lovi Ilie in inuit or ref lenient and the Lapid improvement in science and the arts now eyes of the admiring beholder. Who that in years gone by greeted the a of Spearance of the Quot Gazette Quot which bore the name of one of the distinguished gentlemen the prints of who eject May now he seen occasionally in the columns of the Hebdo Madal which elicits the present review As it came Forth from the press loaded with the old fashioned doctrines of Eherson and Edison and weekly Corn fiend Atkins of the iniquity Quot principles of Clay and ample denunciations of Fie second father of country the Quot greatest and it Quot a Loes not rejoice that men change with Fortune manners change with climes tenets with Bool and principles with Quot who we say. Of the patriarchs of our Village does not rejoice that the Star of refinement has deigned to cast its benign rays upon this land that instead of the maxims and opinions of statesmen Only suited to the old fashioned Era of 76, we Are now furnished with the patriotic views and the True Republican sentiments of a Benton a hair a Kendall a Cain a Johnson not he of the dictionary and that sine qua non of a Candle whose name though not now recollected will certainly never be extinguished. Who is not gratified that a Sheet whose editorials evinced hat their author Chi a Dently favored the principles of Lindley Murray and the sterner principles of truth has Given place to a weakly paper in which the first is set at utter Defiance and the latter yields not to Convent Nee or malice but to that Happy invention of the human brain called fiction Slappy for Indiana the time has arrived when the crude notions of Murray and Kirkham meet with no favor in the eyes of the literary prodigies of the present Day and Genius a not retarded in her flight nor confined to the narrow limits proscribed by her whose name is a Quot by word and reproach Quot with the enlightened editors of the paper of which we speak. Imong the eff cts of this Happy change we May notice the frequent democratic allusions made to individuals who unfortunately possess the esteem and Confidence of Many and Are therefore certainly fit objects of envy and to Banks Bank officers amp a. Certainly no one could have been so illiberal As to suppose that aught which has recently appeared in the columns of the Democrat in relation to these matters and which apparently bore the impress of falsehood originated in envy or was brought Forth in the malice of the editors. No gentle Reader if you have been thus deluded rely upon it you have none of that literary taste that Happy discernment so necessary to coins Fehrend the meaning of the Lea Neil editors of the Dot Nio crat. You have applied the harsh term of falsehood to that which was intended Only As literary embed Lis lenient. J heir Genius is not to be cramped into the rigid limits of veracity and when you discover aught which seems strange statements bearing the appearance of slander in reference to those whose you have enjoyed or years and whose character is without reproach attribute them not we Pray you to any of Liose ignoble passions which sometimes in the human breast for be a"�8ured that the bosom of Iho Junior is As pure and undefined As is the person of the senior and they who have had the pleasure of observing tiie latter will Bear me out in the assertion that nothing filthy or unclean Ever a Manait Ironi that source. Let not the principles which your Mother instilled into your bosom prevent Vou from extending the credit which is duo to the weakly Elf Ona of the impair nation of the remarkable labourers in the paths of literature the editors of the Indiana Democrat. But we have become lost in the rapture which the subject affords. Instead of speaking of the general c Iai Acter of the paper we had intended to confine ourselves to a Brief review of the number noticed in the com Ine Cement. File regret in the language of a distinguished writer in reference to another sul Jet How Over to iat the limits of paper will not enable us to do twice �0 a Hebdo Madal a Vichich is really an Lionor to the country and to american literature we must confine ourselves to the remarks of the editors of the Democrat in their review of a new historical drama recently published. Not that we can enter into detail for it would require columns to Point out All the beauties and merits of the article to which we allude. As n review Liberal and enlightened it easts the american and London quarterlies in the Shade and the Host of magazines and monthlies will fall forever before the Gigantic literary effect of the review of Pocahontas. Hoffman alas thy Fame is eclipsed Frazer thy glory 18 obviated. But our object is merely to introduce the views of the Democrat in assigning n cause for the fact Quot that perhaps no stale in he Union Baa had a worse Library reputation than Indiana Quot after enumerating in the most glowing manner the various blessings which Indiana possesses modest however inducing to omit the name of the Democrat the Junior thus Speaks a the miserable reputation which state has had for elegance for refinement and for literary taste is attributable to the gothic Rule of the Jan o. Composed As this body is of men without education with Oul a taste for literature and the Fine arts and without Man nature it is not at All to be wondered at that Indiana should still be regarded As Tho abode of illiterate boors and half naked Savages. The very appearance of the Junio in Broadway and Che Sostand Washington is sufficient to impress any intelligent Man with the he Lief that Indiana is in a state of comparative ignorance and barbarism. We would ask what would the freq enters of Wall Street think of the intelligence of the people of this site should the nov error elect appear at the merchants Exchange and it should there be made known that he was the governor and yet such men have placed Indiana at the very foot of the Hill of science. The character of a people Are judged of from their Public men. If enlightened tie it impress that character abroad upon the people if ignorant such a character will the people have. The engrossing passion of this Junto is lucrative office. Their gothic invasion into the Sanctuary of Genius has put vestige of sentiment and refinement. The Young and talented Are proscribed the honest Are Laid by As useless lumber and those Only who will court their smiles and do their bidding receive any notice and encouragement. Let any one read the effusions of the Junto to the journal for proof of what we have said. The sight of a Quot Bentonia Quot a five Dollar Bill or even a zip would wring expression o admiration from this Junto greater far greater than the sight of the most Beautiful and Sublime creation of nature and Tivey would receive More real satisfaction from the Possession of a Quot bit Quot than they would from the perusal of the most finished production of the now who can deny that the very causes named by the Junior have had the effect which he states and who does not Admire that discernment which has enabled to detect these causes after which All the other literary men of Indiana have been seeking for years. But perhaps some who Are strangers May not be Able to comprehend the allusion of Tho Learned editor when he Speaks of the Junto. Permit us then to say that the Junior has recently become a convert to the theory of animal magnetism and being himself an animal Jeardon us for omitting the name As it will readily suggest itself he has recently undergone an operation by which he has been made Able to disc Overall that exists especially in the politics of the present Day whatever May have been the Effort to conceal As Well As Many things which do not exist. By this operation he has discovered the political Junto of which he Speaks whether among the existing or non existing is not material for our present purposes. But the extreme modesty of the Junior has forbade filling up the picture commenced by of the appearance of the Junto in Washington Philadelphia and new York. But it is our duty Soto do. What then would be the admiration and rapture of the beholders at the Quot appearance in Chesnut Street Quot of the Democrat s next door neighbor behold symmetry fair proportions. Surely no one supposes from complacent smile or unassuming gait that he regards himself As the owner Quot of the Gable end of the City Quot or that Quot is engrossing passion is Lucre and and surely no one would discover in any striking resemblance of that unfortunate Man Olio was doomed to Wear a Mark upon forehead. But he Speaks and As the enraptured multitude listen to specimens of and syntax they Are reminded that he who appears in their presence is the translator of certain Quot French and latin phrases Quot of old and involuntarily exclaim in the language of the Learned Junior Quot no state in the Union furnishes better material for literary Effort Quot but behold who is the Quot keeper of the Seal Quot of state pro menacing among the aristocratic crowd in Broadway How remarkable is the contrast. There lie stands a specimen of Quot nature s Handi work Quot und a living moving evidenced tie falsity of Tho assertion that first Quot her Prentice Han she tried on Man. And then she made the Lasse Quot but he Bov a and Chesterfield stands Back. Witness the Graceful movement of the nether limbs and that delightful contortion of Tho Mouth which the vulgar multitude would Call a grind und As they think upon the a a history and customs of the aborigines listen to their exclamations in the eloquent language of the Junior Quot with All these advantages it is i indeed surprising that Indiana should have the reputation of so Little Tasie and but we must not withhold a scene still More delightful. Behold the pretty Little Junior of the Democrat the image not of gods but of goddesses with delicate Gold headed Rattan a Chain of Gold ? encircling neck and falling in Graceful festoons to an aperture in the Vest iii Quot hard listed Quot members enveloped in True Republican style in White kid gloves to preserve them from the scorching rays of the Sun with Little body laced in a Corset and Little soul in something smaller but mor3 elastic with Nice sleek Sling legs extending to the Gro Bifid Una Leei designing to touch the soil pro menacing the streets of Washington. The stripes of Black and Blue sphere with nasal or an was surrounded occasioned by the it memorable Battle w herein i feat so much excited the Rympa Ihie of our Community have vanished and Given place to Wihera of another Quot Aue and lit to Quot there he stands one of Quot the a d listed yeomanry of the look at those crowded a windows a Tiivi Job user Vapories filled with anxious admirers leaning Forward to catch one last Long look of the perfection of human Beauty. See the throne Ltd streets and listen to the exclamations of the Lair Admire is of the Beautieu charming Little being. Hut he is met by that proverb of politeness the president who Lii using himself cast in the Shade Quot passes by on the other Side Here is Beauty which arrests imagination in its highest flight Ami 1 Sublimity which would cause fancy to Linae a and dwell and make its abiding is a sight of one of the most Beautiful and Sublime creations of but we have not time further to extend the picture or Urther to extract irom that Learned production the review of Pocahontas. In the language of one whose literary Fame dwindles into insignificance when compared with that of the Junior of the Deino crat we might say Quot Vivere i not that its title proclaims the Democrat to be edited by a citizen of the West we should pm claim its impossibility. Lor the style of Wii Tibig and the Mariner not Only Savours nothing of the. Luxuriance of language prevalent in the West but it has More of the i waste Ness and strictness the present new England school Quot and much of that literary tas e which characterizes the productions of Irving the Light and agreeable flow of Willis and the still More delightful style and manner of Munchausen. In conclusion lot us say Junior Isa a a citizen but 7iot a native of Indiana which is most to be regretted o. P. Q. Life that Prince Marrou a received the orders of the Ard High to be present with All the Force he could Muster at the Royal Camp within a stated time. At the moment when tie Royal order arrived sir Downing o Hartigan was seated at the table of the Prince. He immediately arose and requested permission to return to own Home in order to Muster All the Force he could command and to bid Adieu to wife and family for it was foreseen that Many a Warrior would leave now to consult it by read Jiining from the Field of Clontarf Perless upon the Heights of far Moyle and Over of oks the wide and Barren Flat where once Lough Ennel basked and tumbled in the Sun. It is True that the time of Possession specified in the statute of limitations Ijabo Long since expired but there Are Points in this Case which Render it a Peculiar j Oliy suggest cams that he turned Back at length one and i have no doubt that a chancery in uric and a is about to depart in considerable Wrath. Time for the approaching contest who might be judged. Tion might readily be obtain died to prevent any inter meddling with the Fisli until the Case should have been fairly Hoard in equity and finally Adver again return. The Prince gave permission to depart after requesting to be p in Cut Al As to the Day of joining them with Force. Night had fallen before sir Downing reached the dreary wilds of Burrin in which House was situated. The sky was dark and Stormy and the Knight commanded foot boy or dal tin whose duty it ordinarily was to run by master s Side holding the Stirrup to mount on Crupper and to keep seat As Well As he might behind . Thus doubly freighted it was matter of wonder to master and Squire with How much life and vigor the Little Hobby continued its journey. It was interrupted however in rather a singular manner. At a gloomy turn in the Road the Hobbie stopped Short with so much suddenness that the two riders were it not for sir Bowling s Superior horsemanship would by the impetus of their own motion have continued their journey homeward in the air for at least a Yard or two beyond the hobble s head. Still As a Stone statue stood the animal see icing neither to Here the voice of the Knight nor to feel the still More cogent remonstrances which were applied with profusion Buth to rib and flank. Quot you might As Well let alone sir Downing Quot said the Daltin. Quot Why do you think so dutch Quot Quot because Ireland would it make her stir nov. There s something near us master that s not foolish being said the Knight descend and see what is the matter me me get Down exr claimed dutch i had rather face a whole Cath of the Loch i Rannoch a name Given the Northern pirates a master Asthore get Down yourself since you Arnt in dread of them sir Downing complied compassion Ting the weakness of attendant and giving the reigns to the Awe struck Daltin. Advancing a few paces he beheld by the faint Light which the Stormy sky of lorded the figure of a woman in a sitting posture on the right hand Side of the Road with the Hood of her cloak and her arms clasped in an attitude of profound affliction. Who s there exclaimed sir Downing in a peremptory tone. There was no reply. Speak said the Knight if you be in sorrow Tell your sorrow if not retire and let my Hobbie pass the Road still neither sound nor motion on the part of the hooded figure gave sign of attention or of compliance and it was not until the Knight had added menace to words that he was Able to procure an answer. You re like the rest of the world said the woman slowly revealing in the faint Light her worn and wrinkled features that never knows its friends is that Nora asked sir Downing in astonishment. It is. A sir Downing i m in trouble upon what account Nora asked the Knight. I la Tell you then. Do you know that Lake you used to be so fond of fishing in when you used to go visit your relations in the county Gal Way from the new York Mirror. Sir Dowling o Hartigan. A legend. Everybody who knows any thing of Irish history must have heard of Brian Boru this we assume As a postulate without which we can proceed no further. It is equally notorious that in the course of reign he met with no Little annoyance from those unruly neighbors called the Danes who had now for More than three centuries exercised a barbarous tyranny Over the original inhabitants of the Isle sometimes suffering severely in the efforts made by the latter to rid themselves of their unfeeling assailants. A Mong the most distinguished of those warriors who endeavoured to Aid the Ard High or Arch King Brian in Battles against the Lawless scandinavian was the Knight whose name we have adopted As the title of our legend. None wielded the Lann or the Battle axe with a More fatal skill none stood More firm in the fight and none appeared so indifferent tothe reputation which deeds had won As sir Downing o Hartigan. He fought not for Fame nor Power Quot nor for any selfish end but purely for duty a duty to Prince to country and to heaven r Tia despising death not from animal temperament alone or the greediness of ambition but on the principle of right reason valor was As constant and steadfast As it was heroic. It was a few Days before the famous Battle of but this continued old Nora is not tie Only nor the principal cause of my trouble. I had rather All the lakes in Galway were in West death than to hear what i heard to nigh Ami to know what i know what did you hear inquired sir Dowlingf. No. 804 and the Shoals of Kerne distinguished by the hanging Cap the ready Skene at the Girdle and sir Downing however would by no Means the javelin in the hand were arrayed Between the hasten to her dishonourable though Friendly solicit Royal tents and the rebel Force. Among these la Lions. He became so impatient of those Unwor last the Island costume was shamefully mingled with the Chain Armor of the invaders 4�d the Irish poll axe advanced in Tho Sam cause with the ponderous Northern Sparlie which had so of Quot stay sir Downing exclaimed the Witch although i cannot Clinge the nature of the prophecy i will do my utmost to prolong your life. Take this cloak it has the Power of rendering thu be who Wear it invisible to the eyes of others. If it cannot Avert the Fate that threatens you it May at least retard the term of its apr Roach. But above All things i warn you let. Ii Olaiti Ever induce you to resign the cloak until the fight is at i it a end Ify Nti do you Are so a i heard thousands of Irish wives and Moi Liers ing and flinging the filed upon she hobbled Clontarf in which the venerable Monarch gave one ennobling feeling which adorns and signifies he enemies a final overthrow and lost own do you mean Lough Ennel the very same i do indeed replied the Knight. A Many a pleasant Day and Moonlight night have i spent upon the Banks or on its Waters. It was a Fine Lake for . Well you la never spend another there except you go to the county of West Neath for it to the county of Westmeath exclaimed sir Downing in Asu Nish mint. To the county of Westmeath. Tis there Loch Ennel is new and there it will remain i m very much in dread nonsense said the Knight did i not see it with my own eyes the inst Triue i was in Galway and Ilid it i Send the Prince a Basket of the finest Trout he Ever tasted that i took in the very Middle of it with my one nonsense said the Knight How could it be in the county of Westmeath a of then through nothing in the world Only Folly said the old woman that could it but go lend it to an old neighbor of mine a decent woman As i thought her that lives in those parts and now she wont return it Well Nora said sir Dowling i m surprised at you. Is it possible a woman of your sense to go lend such a Lake As thai a and sure you ought to know that Leinster people before now How hard it is to get any thing from them. There s hardly an Ard High we had this length of time but was heart broken with them trying to get their you d have More sense Nora of then says the old woman who d Ever think that she d serve such a trick last summer Twelvemonth she sent Over to me with her compliments and she d be obliged to me for the loan of a Lake for a Little while Westmeath being an Inland place where it was very hard to get fish and she knew that i could it miss it much As Connaught was bordering on the sea coast and she d return it faithfully on the first monday of the month. Well i did t like to refuse her for she has greater Power than i have and might do me some mischief so i took Lough Ennel and rolled it up in an apron and sent it off Quot to her with my compliments and that i was Happy to have it in my Power to accommodate her. She kept the Lake and the first monday of the month came and the first monday after and she never sent it Home and Little thanks she gave me when i sent Lor it neither. T waited As Long As i had patience to wait but not a sight of Lough Ennel did i see from that Day to this and Are you going to look after it now said sir Downing i m going now to look after it replied the Witch but indeed i m afraid it is Little Good for me. This is my thanks for being obliging we May remark that old Nora was right in her apprehensions As May be ascertained by a reference to Shaw Mason s Topography or the Colle Tanea for there lies Lough Ennel to this Jay in the Middle of the county Westmeath whose inhabitants continue to enjoy the fruits or rather the fishes of the old woman s dishonesty while the poo in Galway Mountaineer stands often sup lamenting Over the slain and wounded in the Battle of Clontarf you heard them lamenting said the Knight for a Caiani Ity which has not yet taken place Bui it is certain said the woman when the Oak shall be levelled by the storm what will become of the Underwood you know not what this Means now but you will if you should live another week explain yourself plainly said sir Downing. Whatever be the Issue it is better i should be prepared for it. I am to join the Standard of Prince Murrough at the Battle and i am nov returning to Lake leave of my family and friends the woman remained silent for some moment and then suddenly said return and collect your Force and meet me Here to Morrow an hour before Midnight alone and be sure you do not fail with these words she disappeared and sir o Hartigan in much per a laxity continued journey. He arrived at Castle arranged temporal Afi airs and made the necessary preparation becoming one who was about to encounter imminent danger. On the following Day having Bidden Adieu to those among friends who were to remain behind he set Forward at the head of a Strong party of horse and foot with whom he encamped after Nightfall within a Short distance of the appointed place of meeting. About an hour before Midnight. Sir Downing throwing War cloak around advanced to the rendezvous where he found old Nora already expecting with an air of deeper anxiety and apprehensions than she had shown the night before Are you resolved. Sir Downing she said to join the Standard of o Brien at Clontarf is my Prince to be there said sir Downing and shall i not be there beware of what i passed the Field last evening and the color of death was upon the Sod the men of the cold Hills Mother shall make that vision Good beware said the old woman again elevating her Finger with a warning look deals reaps Harvest without regard to the Quality of the Grain the Weed and the wheat ear together full beneath sickle. He is a blast that blows its Poison indiscriminately upon All that is fair and All that is hideous on the Eai lha the tender flowered of the Spring that faints and shrinks and facts beneath a wind too chill and the Marble Rock that accumulates its bulk for Ages and when its Date is reached rots atom after atom in to the embrace of the grim destroyer Are both a like victims. I lie ape that fibbers on the Bough and the Sage that meditates beneath the Shade the Cov Vaid that skulls behind the Fence and the Warrior Hal braves in the Daylight the Eagle in the Plains of air and the Wren upon the Stumer Spray the lion in the bosom of the oods and the hair that glides in the Moonlight a the Leviathan within the caves of the Ocean and the Star wish stangling the Waves upon its surface nay even the very elements Hal feed those million shades and Rich varieties of life Are All a subjected to and must at some time feel Power. To the deepest shades in tie heart of the densest substances there is no escaping that pervading principle of ruin. Mis wings overshadow the universe and breath penetrates to the Centre. The tears of lie forlorn and Tho bereaved the sigh of the widow and the orphan move not he has no of Relenyi iii a to the Loch Lannoch and the children of the dal Gais Are alike whatever be my Fate said sir Downing 1 will never leave a tarnished reputation after me a the War cry of the Strong hand Sigall never find sir Downing slow to second it. But Tell me if those fatal in plications which look on you from the future Point directly at my life or at that of my Irinee i can Only answer for your own said the hag and 1 cannot even guess at your Fate without your own assistance. Go to the top of yonder Hill and Tell me what you see sir Downing obeyed and in a Short Lime returned to the place where he had left the Voltl woman. I have seen said he a woman clothed in Saffron and with Golden ornaments upon her neck and shoulders the Rio a is fatal said t a old woman shaking her head go again and go to lire other Side of the Hill again he went and again he returned. I have seen sail he a woman clothed in while and wearing Silver ornaments oif with Oil wailing for thanks and took the Way towards Westmeath to recover her lost Lake and Harangue the Borrower about her want of punctuality. It might be pardoned she muttered to herself As she moved along if there were no other Lake in the county West meal but the one although even then the Best that could be said of them is that they came by it shabbily enough but when they have Lough Iron and Lough Othel and Lough Deve Rerah and Lough Lane and a Good piece of Lough ree a it is scandalous and in neighbourly and i will not submit to it. I m sure that it is we Hal ought to be borrowing lakes out of West meal and not they out of Galway sir Downing in the meantime returned. Desirous to ascertain whether old Nora s cloak did in reality possess the wonderful virtue which she ascribed to it he paused at a Little distance from the first sentinels and fastened it about neck. To astonishment he passed All the guards successively without receiving a single Challenge and reached own quarters unobserved. Here he found Duat a lying half asleep by the watch fire which had been lighted up for sir Dowling s use. Knowing Daltin to be one of those persons who Are sensible scarcely of any fear except that which is referred to a supernatural of inject he determined to put the Power of the cloak to a still surer test. Dutch exclaimed the Knight dutch awake the Daltin started up and gazed around. Dutch continued the Knight Here take my cloak and Lann and watch while i lie Down and take a few hour s sleep mercy on tue exclaimed the Daltin trembling. Do you hear me Sirrah have you lost your wits tis the master s voice said dutch rubbing eyes and looking around on. All sides but where in the earthly universe is he. Where am a Rogie do you not see me standing close to you Well cried Duah 1 never was in trouble till now at these work s. Sir Downing struck iii pretty smartly Over the shoulders with sheathed sword. If you do not see me you shall feel me sir ten drunk the blood of the helpless and resist i iii in their towns and villages. Mindful of Quot old Noia s warning. Sir Downing 0 Hartigon committed men to the command of an inferior officer and fastening the cloak around big neck passed unobserved to that Pari of the Field where Prince Murrough o Brien was in the act of persuading Liis aged stricken Parent the Vene Fible i Liam of the Day to retire from a scene in which he could no longer afford assistance and to await in tent the Issue of the combat. To lib Monarch at length complied and bidding an after Tio Nale fare Tell to children of two generations who were Airout to risk All for Crown and people slowly Milired from the Field and it the same instant sir Downing had the mortification to hear the Prince give utterance to an exclamation of disappointment and Surprise at non a fear Ance. Quot it is the first time Quot said Prince Murrough Quot that i Ever knew sir Downing of Hartigan untrue to the Knight had much difficulty in restraining himself from flinging away the cloak and remove. Ing the uneasiness of Prince but the warning of Nora and the fear that in eagerness to Manifest loyally he might lose the Power of manifesting it in a More effectual Way enabled to control inclinations. The Battle commenced and sir Downing taking position near the Prince wrought Prodi Gies of valor in defence. The Prince and immediate attendants beheld with astonishment. Dane after Dane and traitor after traitor fall mortally wounded to the ground yet none could say by whose weapon Llie blow was struck. More than once the Prince As if on strength were so Gigantic that the Mere intention of a blow on pan were destructive than the practical exertions of another saw enemies fall prostrate at Liis feet when he had by lifted sword into the air above them. At length a Nordman of prodigious size came bearing Down upon the Prince hewing All to i orcs before and breaking the Royal ranks with the strength of a Rhinoceros. At the very instant when he had arrived within a sword s length of Murrough o Brian and while the latter a in the act of lifting shield in order to resist Onset to the astonishment of All and doubtless to own the head of the Gigantic Nordman rolled upon the grass. The Prince started Back amazed. Quot these must be sir Dowling s blows Quot he exclaimed Quot and yet i do not see the Man Quot. Quot and u hat hand Quot cried sir Downing flinging aside the cloak in a transport of deals defying Zeal Quot what hand has a better right than sir Quot Dowling s to do its utmost for the son of Brien Quot he had scarcely Given utterance to the words when the Sparlie of a Loch Lannoch Yho stood Rah said the a i i.

At the same Lime he unit a like lie which Dinatle the Mantle fast about own Nick and stood visibly before to e astonished Daltin.
