Wouldst make the wife of thy bosom. A wife what a sacred name what a responsible office she must be the unspoiled Sanctuary to which wearied men flee from crimes of the world and feel that no sin dare enter there. A wife she must be As pure spirits around the everlasting throne that Man May Kneel to her even in adoration and feel no abasement. A wife she must be the guardian Angel of his footsteps on Earth and guide them to heaven so firm in virtue that should he for a moment waver she can yield him support and replace him upon its firm foundation so Happy in conscious innocence that when from the perplexities of the world he turns to his Home he May never find a frown where he sought a smile.

Dear sir the announcement of your name by the Harrisburg convention As a candidate for the presidency has naturally led us to inquire what ouf political sentiments Are. We have thus been indeed to trouble you with a few interrogatories which we would be gratified that you would answer to oar satisfaction 1. What Are your views with regard to a United states Bank 1 2. Your views with regard to internal improvements by the general government a 3. Your views with regard to the admission of Florida into the Union 1 4. Whether you believe that Congress possessed the constitutional Power to abolish slavery in the District of Columbia a 5. If you Ever proposed that the surplus Revenue should be appropriated to Purchase the slave population and emancipate them ? 6. Whether you Ever directly advocated the passage of a Law having for its object the Sale of insolvent debtors 1 an Early answer to the above questions would gratify your obedient Sev to. J. L. Terry s. W. Cole. E. Sinclair. W. H. Harrison Esq. These have been replied to by the confidential committee with a slight Dise rence in the first paragraph a literal copy of their letter to the Oswego cd association and signed by Rufus Hodges for David Gwynne who had perhaps been in a dose and by the same for himself John c. A right s name not being signed to it. Harrison s reply. Cincinnati feb. 1s40.-Messrs. Terry Cole Sinclair a gentlemen your letter of the 2sth, december addressed to general Harrison has been delayed thus Long in consequence of the almost innumerable Calls of a similar kind and from All sections of the United states. These have. At last so multiplied As to Render it imm practicable absolutely for the general to respond in person. The duty Tolj Refore devolves upon the undersigned members of his Cor responding and we May add confidential committee and if the policy hereafter observed should not meet your entire approbation you will we Trust attribute the error rather to ourselves than general Harrison. That policy is that the general make no further declaration of principle for the Public Eye whilst occupying his present position. Such course has been recommended and adopted not for the purpose of concealment nor to avoid All proper responsibility but under the impression that the general s views in regard to All the important and exciting questions of the Day have been heretofore Given to the Public fully and explicitly and that those views whether connected with constitutional or other questions of general interest have undergone neither change nor modification. The committee Are now embodying in pamphlet those former expressed opinions which shall be forwarded to you at the earliest moment and which we be-., Lieve will prove satisfactory. They Are strengthened in regard to the propriety of the policy that general Harrison make no new Issue to the Public from the consideration that the National convention deemed it impolitic at the then crisis and the times Are certainly unaltered to publish anything like a general manifesto of the views of the great whig party. In the mean time we cannot help expressing the Hope that our friends in the South will receive the nomination of general Harrison with something like generous Confidence. When they Southern friends reflect on the distinguished intelligence and character of the convention which placed him in nomination How ably All interests and especially those of their particular Section were represented in that body they certainly have a High guarantee that should general Harrison be the successful candidate for the presidency that office will be happily administered and under the guidance of the same principles which directed our Vwashington Jef Terson and Vlad son. Hoping you will concur with us in the propriety of the policy herein adopted we have pleasure itt subscribing ourselves your friends d. Gwynne by r. Hodges. O. M. Spencer. Rufus Hodges. H. E.

A both Moleti Lake in Sussex county w. in the Troy morning mail gives the following notice of a remarkable Pond in Sussex county new Jersey White Lake is situated about one mile West of the Paulis kill in the town of Stillwater. It is nearly circular and about one third of a mile in diameter. It has no visible Inlet but its outlet is a never failing Stream of considerable magnitude. The name is derived from its appearance. Viewed from a Little distance it seems of a Milky whiteness except a few rods in the Centre which by the contrast appears perfectly Black. The appearance itself is singular enough but the cause is still More remarkable. From the Centre or dark portion of the Lake at stated seasons innumerable quantities of shells Are thrown up of various sizes and forms but All perfectly White. These float to the Shore and Are thrown out upon the Beach or sink into shallow water. Hundreds of bushels might be gathered from the Shore Ader one of these periodical uprisings and the whole soil for several rods on every Side of tie Lake is composed entirely of these shells broken or decomposed by the action of the weather. In the Centre of the Lake Bottom has never been found air though it has been sounded to the depth of neral Hundred feet.

Quot a remarkable instance of the political amalgamations of our Days recently occurred. It is Well known that the Loco focus reproach their adversaries with being the English party and that they Call them generally bluish whigs. On Friday last the whigs of new York celebrated the anniversary of the Victory of fort Meigs gained by general Harrison Over the British forces. To the amazement of every body the English ships which were lying in the Harbour were All dressed and Dee rated with flags in Honor of the occasion sacrificing thus their National Pride to the interest which they Lake As it appears in the whig cause.
