We passed the i Rison where the victim was confined and Lamondie pointed out to me thu grated window of his apartment through which he was listening to from the Baltimore american.

Shortly we reached the ground where his Fate was to he enacted. We took our stand on the top of the Lime rocks whilst the troops one thousand in number formed Tiree Fourt lis of a Square on the Plain beneath. At last from the prison Gale came Forth a com any their Drums milled with Crape and the victim in the Centre on foot followed by tiie hor get and cart which were to carry Back his dead body. He was quite unchained and Iliad no priest with him. At first they beat a slow Noarch l it we saw him wave his hand to the a runners and understood that it was a signal for them to beat Quick time which they did whilst i dare Sav More hearts than mine quickened their pulsation. When they halted on the fatal spot the commanding officer pulled out a paper a Liili was the sentence of deals and he read with a loud and Stern voice. Every syllable he uttered was audible Trio i h we stroj a considerable distance. Meanwhile the Uli re took his station with Las Back to the ionic rocks twelve musketeers Olio Ucic to i his executioners in front of Lipini.

You will not wonder that my tears at this crisis blinded me. When dried them 1 could not see the victim. I said to , where is he look there he said pointing with his Finger quot Don t you see a red Stripe on the ground quot and sure enough 1 saw it his red pantaloons made one part of the Stripe and his bleeding head and body made the other. All the troops then defiled around him. We came Down to the spot but before we had reached it the body had been removed in a cart and nothing remained but some blood and brains and a portion of his Skull.

We copy the following from Paulding s life of Washington just published by the harpers it is impossible to read the speeches and letters of Washington and follow his whole course of life without receiving the conviction of his steady rational and exalted piety. Every where he places his chief Reliance in the Difini cult amp almost hopeless circumstances in which he was so often involved on the Justice of that great being who holds the Fate of men and of nations in tie hollow of his hand. His Hopes for his country Are Dwa s founded on his of its cause and the Blessing of heaven. His was the belief of reason and revelation and that belief was illustrated and exemplified in All its actions. No Parade accompanied his exercise no declamation exhibition for it was his opinion that a Man who is always boasting of his religion is like one who continually proclaims his honesty he would Trust neither one or the other. He was not accustomed to a gue on Points of Faith i it on one occasion in reply to a gentleman who expressed doubts on tie subject thus gave his sentiments a quot it is impossible to account for the creation of the universe without the Agency of a supreme being. Quot it is impossible to govern the universe without the Aid of a supreme being. Quot it is impossible to reason without arriving at a supreme being. Religion is As Newessa to reason As reason is to religion. The one cannot exist without the other. A reasoning i eing would lose his reason in attempting to account for the great Phenomena of nature and he not a supreme being to refer to and Well has it been said that if there had been no god Mankind would have been obliged to in Timber. The right time to fell Timber for rails buildings and agricultural uses generally is when the sap is in full flow when the bark ceases to Peel freely the Felling should be stopped. In Stippert of this opinion it is alleged that the operation is performed at the time when Timber Sarll season the soonest becomes harder and firmer in consequence of Quick seasoning the pores being then full of sap the or ingot which leaves behind something of a Gluey kind having somewhat the Benefit of Oil paint a being harder and firmer than if felled in the Winter the worm is longer deterred from commencing its depredations which is the main cause of the der a of All timbers. To fell Timber when the bark does not Peel freely is of a time of the year which takes a longer period to season in consequence of which and the absence of the sap it never becomes so hard and solid hence the m orm the great destroyer of Timber commences earlier its operations. In most of the newly settled timbered countries it w As the general practice to leave valuable Timber Trees standing in the Fields which were Gir led or Deaden a this operation being performed when the bark did not Peel the tree would stand up several years longer than if done when it did and hence arose the opinion that the Winter was the right time to fell Timber to insure durability. If girdled when the sap is in full flow the sudden stoppage leaves the trunk full of sap a fermentation or sourness takes place the bark prevents the escape of the moisture the Wood becomes soft and the worm soon commences not so if the operation is done in the Winter. A Large Beech tree May be girdled in the month of february and one of the same character in every respect in the following May the latter will rot two years sooner than the former and so it would be of two Trees felled at the Hume periods and left with the bark on but if into rails the bark taken off or for other purposes the latter would be much the most Farmer. 1775 1775 1776 1776 1776 i77g 1777 1777 1777 1777 1777 1777 1778 1779 1780 1781 1781 1781 1781 1781 of Hundred thousand dollars of specie passed through Albany on tuesday morning on its Way to this is no doubt intended says the evening journal to give to some of the purchasers of the Public lands the Means of complying with the recent order of the government natural curiosity. In the great Valley Between the North and South mountains in Pennsylvania commonly called the Eastern ridges a Well was dug some years since in Franklin and another in Cumberland county thirty or Lorty Miles from the for fit it or which led to a discovery affording a Subj it for inheres King speculation. Alter proceeding in cach instance to the depth of about thirty six feet the Bottom of these Wells suddenly gave Way but fortunately when the Avo men had retired and a torrent of water Gyhl a up. A Lead was sunk with fifty fathoms of line without finding the least Obs True tion they remain at Liis time untouched and of unknown depth the presumption is that there is a subterranean Lake in that Quarter and How far it extends under the base of the vast j primitive mountains situated Between the Susquehanna and Pittsburg will never be ascertained unless by some terrible convulsion of nature they should be precipitated in the tremendous Magazine. Agine one. Character. Among the happiest and proudest possessions of Man is his character. It is a wealth it is a rank of itself. It usually procures him the honors and rarely the jealousies of Fame. The Wise Man therefore despises not the opinion of the world he estimates it at its full value he does not Rush from vanity alone against the received opinions of others he does not Hazard his costly jewel with unworthy combatants and for a Petty stake. He respects the legislation of decorum. If he be benevolent As Well As Wise it will enable him the better to forgive the erring and to shelter the assailed. But that Cliar Acter is built upon a and hollow basis which is formed not from the dictates of our breast but solely from fear of censure. What is the essence and life of character principle ingenuity Independence. The is not infrequent that a wife mourns Over the alienated affections of her husband when she has made no Effort herself to strengthen and increase his attachment. She thinks that because he once loved that he ought always to love her and she neglects those attentions which at first engaged his heart. Many a wife is thus the cause of her own neglect and sorrow. That woman deserves not a husband s Gene Rous love who will not Greet him with smiles As he returns from the labors of the Day who will not try to Chain him to Bis Home by the Sweet enchantment of a cheerful heart. There is not one in a thousand so unfeeling As to withstand such an influence and break a Way from such a Home. Upon a certain time an orator who wished to advocate the construction of a new Turnpike through a Section in Virginia made the following Sublime speech As we learn from the Marshall Sentinel quot May it please your worships while Europe is convulsed in Civi discord and her empires tremble with internal commotions and while her astronomers mount the wings of their imagination and soar course through the ethereal world pursuing their course from system to system until they have explored the vast eternity of space let us direct our attention to a Road More immediately in our the Indian land in Florida. No wonder the Semins les Are loth to give up their title to the Florida lands if capt. Barr s description of the soil and climate is Correct and who should know better than one who has been on the ground the River with Coo Chie is very Beautiful and for the West part deep and navigable there is some excellent land on the Banks and plenty of tiie live Oak Pine Pickon and cabbage Trees Are numerous. The climate is mild and the most part healthy. Corn will grow both in Winter and summer in fact itis but a perpetual summer. Itis said to be a perfect even. The Woods abound with game the Rivers with fish and the soil produces almost spontaneously tiie few articles of food needed by the indians. The new York transcript says quot a Friend of ours has invented a Patent umbrella.
