At a time when tho profession of a Barber occupied a much higher station than it now does and when the Leech the Shaver of the town or Village were often Turand United in the same person there lived in the free and impartial City of Ulm an excellent Tonsor named Nicholas Botie Stetten. But notwithstanding the manifold merits of the accomplished Nicholas the world with its usual blindness overlooked at the same time his talents and his shop and no Barber in Ulm mowed to few chins As Meinheit Botie Stetten. It happened that upon the evening of a More than usually unsuccessful Day Nicholas was seated in a pensive attitude before his fire and with Bis empty soap Box in one hand and a venerable razor to the other thus Soliloquy sized our disconsolate Barber. Quot surely never Fortune persecuted Barber As she has Dune me a miserable Man that i am i have Liis Day Only shaved an old knife grinder and a wretched water Carrier. Of Fate Fate had i but soap enough and an Opportunity of using it i would show abilities that would astonish the but Quot full Many a Flower is born to Bash unseen Quot Aud there was no Prospect of Nicholas having an Opportunity of displaying those talents which had As yet Only been exercised upon vulgar and illiterate water carriers. Lie continued to lament in the same Strain tor some time and finally settled into an attitude which had Al least the appearance of deep meditation. It May be proper to observe that the fire gradually waxed less Clear to the optics of the meditative Barber. Alter the lapse of sometime Nicholas was aware of the presence of another person in the room and a gentleman of tall and rather singular figure advanced towards him with a smile which was Means to be very repossessing. Nicholas however did not think so but put himself in an Altitude of defence brandish aug his Rusty razor in a truly terrific manner. The stranger notwithstanding Nicholas s warlike appearance advanced quite coolly even to the very Edge of the threatening weapon and addressed the ferocious Barber in a voice of the utmost Savity. Quot Eriend Nicholas Quot said he Quot you perfectly misunderstand my intentions i am come to bestow a very great favor upon at this Nicholas elevated Nis ears and lowered his weapon begging the gentleman s Pardon for his inhospitable reception. I he stranger requested him not to disco pose himself about it and Nicholas making a Low Bow asked the gentleman if he wished to be shaved but thai , with a slight smile said that there would be shaving enough by and by adding Quot in fact this is the very business i have come about. 1 think you said or Lou a which is just the same that if you had enough of soap and chins to operate upon you would be a Happy Man. Is this your opinion Quot after some hesitation Nicholas said that it was. Upon which the stranger desired him to Rise and follow. This our Barber prepared to do and was in the act of pulling his soap Box in his pocket when like stranger desired him to leave it saying there was soap enough where they were going. Nicholas took the Liberty of asking where that might Rny has always done cheer up your broken spirits dear acid excellent lady Isabella already More cheerful at the idea of seeing the Baroi eos who had been the companion of her Youtie smiled almost archly i in her son Liesad, Quot but what of the fair i Fillippa you do kit Serin to include tier in the promised pleasure How is tins Montressor Quot i he of the almost Hazel Cheek of the Young of her husband Tell perfectly willing to withdraw Man was heightened excessively and looking Down to these shades with her Parent no j bran saying with great emotion.

He began not exactly to like this new acquaintance but recollecting that he could not be worse than he was at present he announced himself in readiness to set out. Lie followed the stranger for some time in silence through the streets till at length they arrived at a Bridge which spans tie Danube. Micholas ventured to ask How much farther they were to go Quot follow Quot said the stranger but the Barber had no mind to do so any farther and he attempted to Stop with All this might but this he found to his sorrow he was utterly unable to do for he fell himself dragged Forward As if some invisible hand was pulling him by the Collar. He held Back most manfully but was constantly hauled on like an unwilling dog in a string. He now began to suspect the nature of the company he had got into and some vague ideas of spirits and running streams crossed his mind but his conductor strode on in perfect composure crying out at every step. Quot follow follow Quot on on they went till Nicholas lost All manner of sense and began to Roar and Bellow most furiously but when his terror was at its height and his Tongue performing its office in a masterly manner suddenly he was stopped in his lamentation by going Bead Foremost into a deep pit which he discovered to his infinite consternation was full of soap suds.

But no time was left for consideration again the All powerful Quot follow Quot burst from the lips of the stranger and Nicholas again began his journey. At length Tivey came to abroad and seemingly impassable morass but tho stranger tripped lightly Over it and the unfortunate Nicholas sinking to the Middle at every step reached the other Side breathless and drenched. Quot now Quot said the stranger Quot prepare Quot and clapped Bis hand upon Nicholas eyes. On removing it the Barber found himself in a spacious Hall in which sat a multitude of venerable and Long bearded men and an immense River of lather rolled at their feet Quot a shave Quot cried the Strai a. &Quot.shave,&Quot echoed the old men Nicholas in horrible fright yelled out at this moment the stranger put into his hand an enormous rarer and shaving Brush. To work he set but the Beard of the first he tried was so Long and matted that the razor had no effect upon it. Quot of fora pair of scissors Quot cried Nicholas. Quot shave Quot cried the stranger Quot a shave to All eternity Quot cried the old men. Nicholas could stand no Mure but bolted out of the Hall straight Forward when he Felt some one seize him by the Chin. He looked up and found himself to his great amazement still sitting before his fire with the razor in hand and one of the officers of the University standing beside Hira. Quot i m condemned Quot said Nicholas. Quot to Whatt said the officer. Quot to shave to All in great trepidation he leaned his face upon his bands and sighed most deeply. He was roused from his lamentations by the officer telling him to get up and come with him to shave the erudite doctor Pflanzl whenner who was about to set out to examine some unknown Plant just discovered in a ditch on the Borders of Bavaria. We Are to say that Nicholas acquitted himself so much to the Learned doctor s satisfaction that Ever after he was the favorite Barber of the University of Ulm.

To the i hem being called Quot suddenly Home to attend my sick family i have Quot but a moment to answer a few of the calumnies Quot which Are in circulation concerning me. Quot i am accused of being Friendly to slavery. From Quot my earliest youth to the present moment i have Quot been an ardent Friend of human Liberty. At the Quot age of 18 i became a member of an Quot abolition society established at Rich Quot Anund the object of which was to ameliorate the Quot condition of slaves and procure their Freedom by Quot every Legal Means. My venerable Friend judge Quot Gatch of Clermont county was also a member of Quot this society and has lately Given me a certificate Quot thai i was one. The obligation which i i then come Quot under i have faithfully performed. We. H. a Roma Kable Swan reaches a very great age. One of these Birds known by the name of old Jack died last summer at 15t. James s Park having reached the exact age of three Acore and ten. The following account is Given of him Quot old Jack was batched sometime about the year 1770, on a piece of water attached to old Buckingham House and for Many years basked in the Sun Shine of Royal favor Queen Charlotte being extremely partial to Bim and frequently condescending to Farad him herself. When the pleasure Gardena in St. James s Park were Laid out. Jack was removed. His immense size sociable disposition and undaunted courage have often excited the admiration of the Public. Jack s strength and courage were indeed astonishing frequently has he seized an unlucky dog who chanced to approach the Edge Bis watery Domain by the neck and drowned him and on one occasion be seized a boy about twelve Yeara of age who bad been teasing him by the leg of Bis trousers and dragged Hin into the water up to big Knees. Jack however never acted on the off Asive but always on the defensive and if not Anni de was exceedingly tractable. But the March of modern improve Meiu affected poor Jack As i pub a it Haa Dona thousands of More pretending biped.

As he goes against this particular species of corruption in Van Buren men against whom no charge of the kind has Ever been we wait to see what he will say to this. These articles show that the franking privilege can be abused by those who cry loudest against others. And in addition to this a whig senator of Illinois has lately been detected in Frankie i own private Leklert under the wrappers of Public document franked to him by members of Congress. We allude to senator Ross of Pike county. Can you offset them Friend Maclure ? the articles referred to above were published in in our last. The new York Gazette a whig paper in alluding to the controversy about Gen. Harrison s income from his clerkship of the county court where he resides says Quot Gen. Harrison holds we believe a rather profitable office from which he obtains a handsome salary by rendering the appropriate services and while on the one band it is not True that he is receiving a Large salary for no equivalent labor it is quite As false on tie other hand that be is living in a log Cabin and Geta his living by daily labor at the plow and Post new Post office has been established at Burton a Rke co., ind.
