Whose father Cyrus has been supplied by an egyptian King with a wife. This latter commodity not having proved a purely Merchantable article Cambyses to revenge the indignity uttered by his father s memory and to punish the egyptians for the former act of their Sovereign who was now dead overrun their country pillaged their temples killed their god. Apis destroyed kingdoms sacrificed a million of lives enveloped the known world in the flames of War and at length most gloriously vindicated his father s Honor by digging up the Bones of tie offender and causing them to be Burnt with All the degrading a ceremonials of an expunging process.

Then Monsieur Lepi crier said the King by the eternal Well go to War with but it is needless to a multiply instances from history those from the archives of fiction will apply quite As happily to a Matt i of this pro pm ster our sort and at a future Opportunity we propose to draw upon this source in further illustration of the subject. Meantime we present the following traditional narrative handed us by a worthy Friend which if not so accurate As though it had been penned at the time of its occurrence cannot but be instructive since it conveys a pretty full picture of the depository naturally inherent in Man. Neil al Bor. Conceiving so great i treasure too Ucli for one Monarch and strongly coveting a one of the beasts sent a special embassy with a proposal to Purchase at any i ice however extravagant. The King of Siam not being Short of Cash declined Selling. His majesty of pegu considered the refusal an affront and demanded an explanation. He of Siam protested he would give no reasons upon compulsion he d sooner break his porcelain pipe than make any thing like the Shadow of an apology. Whereupon a vast army was raised by the King of pegu who deemed his dignity most infamously Maure ated. He invaded the siamese kingdom and waged Battle with the immense forces of the refractory elephant owner. After a tremendous struggle wherein five Hundred thousand men fell on both sides the assailant succeeded in capturing one of the elephants and thereby heroically retrieving his Honor. Not Many Ages since there dwelt in the City of Hamburg a profound theologian named Krumhultz who started among the polemical doctors a dispute which involved the whole of that great Metropolis in the bitterest Contention. It was upon the sublimely philological question whether quot our father quot or quot father our quot should constitute the phraseology at the commencement of the lord s prayer and before the controversy terminated it raged to such a degree that the City itself came Well nigh being destroyed in the conflict. The first Duke of Buckingham Villiers contrived to bring about a furious War Between England and two amp of the greatest nations in Europe by reason of his personal Honor having been touched. He had taken infamous liberties with two foreign ladies at the English court had been indignantly repulsed and the Only remedy for so Gross a wound upon his Grace s dignity consisted in a resort to arms whereby his Honor might be established thro unmeasured Slaughter and rapine. Goldsmith in his 17th letter of the quot citizen of the world quot treating of the then existing War Between France and England growing it he i of the dispute on the Canada question re me irks Asifo rows a quot the English and French present engaged in a very destructive War having already a piled much blood Are excessively imitated and a upon account o one Side s desiring to Wear greater quantities to other. Sterne in his Trist Kimii Shandy relates an g4ote of Francis the fit which though put act and pact fable is in Point. His majesty had offered to Switzerland the privilege of naming one of his children not doubting a us edict some Uch agreeable a of Omni As Fraucis or. I Feiry or Louis. But Cesideo announced the Grasshopper after tie settlement of North Carolina the Enir Lish settlers were informed by to e natives that bloody conflict had. Recently raged among thenis distinguished by the appellation of the quot Grasshopper War quot the occasion and Issue o a hich As they related were As follows a the male inhabitants of an Indian Village in the Interior of the Colony went out one Day on Hunting excursion. During their absence two children were amusing themselves in the in closure of one of their parents Hunting Grasshoppers and the child of the neighbor having caught one of these insects the other instantly claimed it As his rightful property on the ground of his father s ownership of the soil the captor forthwith ran Home with his prize and related the facts to his Mother. She a once espoused quot Lier child s cause and applauded his spirit while his Little antagonist proceeded to inform his Mother that his immunities had been infringed upon and a corresponding sentiment touching Mem and Lum was likewise awakened in her bosom. Both mothers grew outrageous each being full persuaded that the respective children hic been grossly wronged. The Mother of the claimant being determined in the ardor ofic rage to obtain recompense called on her neigh Bor and demanded instant restitution but the quot Attar fully prepared for the interview utterly refused to make any amends and insisted fur Lerr Nore on an acknowledgement for the indignity comm tied on her son in the attempt Rob him of his natural and lawful acquisitions. The women presently became fired with Zeal to Settle the dispute by single com at but some of the neighbors interfered and advised a suspension of hostilities until the return of their husbands. This was acceded to ind when the men arrived each was duly made acquainted with the matter whereupon the two fathers met and in the most Savage my vindictive temper fell u on each other vict or raise reason having lost All control and re eng usurped its place. This affray aroused the attention of the Village who immediately took sides and became parties in the combat. The entire Community thus found itself involved in a state of War and bloodshed. While Victory hesitated Between the combatants each party called to its assistance auxiliaries com the be ignoring tribes and they in turn Drew reinforcements from their More Remote i ends so that the whole territory for leagues round about became Entingh d in a murderous and destructive War which did not subside until More than two thousand victims had perished for glory to wit the exhibition of an explanation or the restitution of a grass hop hints for to season. The foundation of virtue and knowledge Are Laid in our youth if at any other time the Structure must be insecure and imperfect. He that will not. Bear the admonition of a Viend deserves to feel the correction of an enemy. A warm heart requires a Cool head. Fancy without judgment is All sail and no ballast. Try to love labor if you do not want it for food you May for physic. He who spends most of his time in Mere sports and recreations is like him whose garments is made together of fringe and whose diet is nothing Birt sauce. Liberty unseasonably obtained is Apt to be temperate by us a Indus Rio Wisdom often a prevents what Lazy Folly thinks inevitable. The death which prevents dotage comes More opportunely than that which ends it. No Trees Bear fruit in autumn unless they los som in Spring. Happy is the Man who can be acquitted by himself in private and by others in Public. There is an excellent contagion in goodness we my be kindled like Green Wood by neighbouring flame. W e May be kept from doing ill As Well by from the Washington Globe. Dread of our enemies As deference for our friends. Temperance in youth is the Assurance of vigorous old age. Excess not Only brings Gray hairs but Green years with sorrow to the grave. Let us not judge of a Jook by the author but of the author by the Book. Without Reading the Best natural parts become dry and Barren. Religion is the Best Armor but the worst cloak. He who Speaks against religion May be suspected of being fretted by it in his conscience. From the Lexington intelligencer. Most melancholy. It is with the most painful emotions that we record the particulars of a most painful Accident that occurred on the Lexington and Ohio rail Road on wednesday morning. The particulars As far As we have Learned Are As follows the locomotive with a train of passenger and freight cars started from the depot at six o clock in the morning and about nine o clock when crossing one of the highest embankments two Miles this Side of i Vani Iford from per it is reported that the pork House of Bush Rod Smith at the Narrows of sugar Creek was entirely destroyed by fire last wednesday night. The House contained at the time upwards of fifty thousand pounds of pork none of which was is the third heavy misfortune that has befallen or. Smith at this place in Little More than six months. In the first a clerk run off with a handsome sum of Money in the second he had about $150,00. Stolen his present loss must be much More heavy than both the others. The fire is supposed to be the work of an incendiary. Rockville Iniel Goncer. Harry Erskine of facetious memory was retained by a client named tickle against whom an action had been brought. On the trial he his. Address to the court thus quot tickle my client the defendant my lord i the audience amused with the oddity of the speech were almost driven into hysterics by the judge replying quot tickle her yourself Harry you Are As Able to do it Asl quot some cause not yet accounted for the engine was thrown from the rail and precipitated to the Bottom of the embankment. The immense Power and weight of the engine exerted instantaneously together with the suspension of its Progress Forward upset the passenger and baggage cars and threw them Over the embankment on the opposite Side with All the passengers. The embankment is Twenty or Lirty feet in height and so sleep that the cars oiled to the Bottom instantly and were dashed to atoms. But one passenger we learn out of fifteen or Twenty escaped unhurt. One was dulled instantly one died in a Short time and when the mail car of wednesday left the scene of disaster two More were supposed to be dying. Others though bruised and injured were not thought to be dangerously. The individuals dead were a in Wilson of Madison Indiana and a or. Tinder Woodford county. The two persons suppose to be so dangerously injured As to Render recovery hopeless Are Archibald Goodloe Esq. Of Madison county and mrs. Hull of this City an aged lady. Those badly injured but not considered in a dangerous situation Are or. H. J. Easton of Paris and j. M. Estill of Madison. Among the passengers who Are bruised in a Slighter degree Are or. Woods of Lexington mrs. Wilson of Madison mentioned above and two of her children. The names of the other passengers on Board of the car at the Lime of the Accident so far As we have Learned them arc or. J. Hull or. Van Pelt and or. Kinnaird of Lexington. Messes. Pierce Scott and Jackson residence not known to us. Or. Kinkead one of the engineers was seriously injured and Jackson the other Engineer was slightly bruised. Two children of or. Tutt were bruised one having its leg broken has since died. , be More on Cepl his than these females my dear Jack said Lover to our Friend. A a except the Mats quot quoth Jack. Washingto Indiana. We published a few Days since an extract from a letter the passage through the legislature of Indiana of a Bill authorizing a loan on the credit of the state of 010,000,000, for the purpose of internal improvements and specifying the works in the construction of Wlinich the Money is to be expended. We now learn that this Bill has received the signature of the governor and becomes a Law. It is truly astonishing when we witness and reflect upon the rapid and Gigantic strides which this and the other Young states of the West have made and arc daily making in Prosperity and Power. Twenty years have not yet elapsed a Nee Indiana was admitted into the Union and Little More than a Quarter of a Century ago her territory which now contains a population estimated at 600,000 souls portions of it already densely populated and thriving villages springing up As is by magic in every direction was an almost uninhabited wilderness. It is Only within the last ten years indeed that the whole of the Northern part of the stale including As we Are informed the greater portion of the Beautiful Fertile and extensive Valley of the Wabash was first settled. In this Region several towns containing populations of from 1 to 2000 inhabitants already grown up which have increased within the last two or three years we Are told with wonderful rapidity and their still More rapid increase for the future is confidently predicted since the adoption by the state of a general system of internal improvements. Under the census of 1820, Indiana had but three representatives in Congress. Under that of 1830, she now has seven. And it is said by those Well acquainted with the rapid increase now going on in her population that in 1840, she will be entitled to at least four Een or fifteen representatives and probably graphical curiosity. The in Erial Library of Viena is contained in a splendid edifice of 242 feet in length and comprises about 350,000 printed books. From 15 to 20,000 manuscripts and 700 volumes of rare and unique works which were printed As Early As the 15th Century. In this Library is preserved an extraordinary specimen of Chir Graphy y a jew on a single Page eight inches Long by six and a half Broad Are written without abbreviations and very legible to the naked Eye the Peni Teuch and Book of Ruth in German Ecclesiastes in hebrew canticles in latin Esther in syriac and Duler Onomy in last line consists of 305 letters. More of it ranch s Law we scarcely know How to notice a to mfr action which occurred at Fayette in this county on saturday night last. Our read ii will Recollet t that some time since we noticed the murder of or. Mcgowan by a Man Nav spite nay that he was arrested and i6ded to jail 10 await his trial. It came on at the Lait term of the circuit but owing to 8om# info Mality in the indictment the True cause of Jill these difficulties he was remanded to pri6n to appear at the session to the court. Instead of awaiting the time allotted for his second Trinaud giving him once More the Uncertain chances of the Law for his condemnation a number of the citizens of Fayette and Neil boyhood. Went Camasse after Havi tee a refused by the keeper the keys of the jail and broke open the doors with Sledge Ham Mersy seized the unfortunate wretch la and Hung him i Stanter. The cause we it iii a quot stand of this summary proceeding arose out of the fact that Spinney had been beaded tif assert Itiat if an Opportunity was Given Hinh he would with undying revenge follow up All who had been instrumental in his convict lion. None we presume will pretend to condemn the punishment which this hardened villain has r Cei Ved but we must say that the Mai ner and method of bringing such men to Jusi Tico As is now pursued will ultimately Lead to consequences the extent of which we cannot calculate. The innocent will suffer with the guilty our towns will be Laid waste by the Toich of the incendiary and our lives Endaz gered to the revengeful murderer . Tel. Death of general Frazer. It is Well known to the readers of american history that the British general Frazer was slain in the Battle of Bemis s Heights in the year 77. The particular manner of his death is thus related in professor Silliman s was the soul of the British army and was just changing the disposition of a part of the troops to repel a Strong impression which the americans bed made aard were still making on the British Rig lit when info gait called together two or three of his Best Ftp tires men and pointing to Frazer said quot do Notisee that Gallant officer that is Gen. Frazer. I respect and Honor him but it is necessary he should this was enough Frazer immediately received his mortal wound and was carried off the Field. The Mississippi legislature adjourned on the 2t�ti uu., having been in session 55 Days. About two Hundred acts were passed among which were an act to increase the salaries of Public officer so an act to establish a Penitentiary an act to extend the jurisdiction and Laws Over the Chickasaw territory and to Lay off the same into 12 new counties and ii cts incorporating certain rail Road companies and establishing certain Banks. The banking capital Clair tired during the session amounts to about Nineteen millions of dollars. Toads. Or. Knight the Nursery Man keeps a Large number of toads in his stoves As he finds them beneficial in destroying Wood lice which injure his plants. The heat in some of the stoves on the 1st of August was 130 degrees showing How capable toads Are of enduring great heat As Well As extreme cold and yet the toads did not appear at All effected by it. If an insect was put five or six inches from one of them it seized it with m much rapacity that it was difficult to perceived How ita disappear de. On. One occasion a Large Toad ate four Good seized beetles one after the other they were taken up in its fore feet and when he got them Bendwise to his Mouth they were swallowed in succession. Toads Are harmless animals. And of infinite use in a Garden consuming great hugs Usu insects. Cultivation of Rice. The Farmers this country Are perhaps in apprised of the fact that a very Good article of Rice May be raised Here with but Little rouble in sufficient abundance to give every quot Amily an ample Supply. The greatest Obj a tion made by those who tried it is the diff icel a in hulling it. This would soon be obviated fit were cultivated in sufficient abundance to induce our country Millers to establish a machine for the purpose. Ave have conversed with several Good practical Farmers who have made the Experiment and Are of the opinion that this article might be cultivated with great advantage to the country. If the Farmer will procure the seed we pledge ourselves to procure the necessary information on the method of cultivating it. And Lay it before them. Is it not Worth trying a Rock int. An English Earl at a Ball in Portsmouth was struck with the appearance of a lady was introduced and enchanted in a breath made love during the country dance and an offer during supper.
