THE NOBLE SAILOR
The occurrence here related took place dur
ing the great conflagration in New York. Dec.
It was a foarftil night,
The strong flaine fiercely sped,
From street to street, from spire to spire,
And on their treasures fed ;
Hark! ’tis a mother’s cry,
High o’er the tumult wide,
As rushing toward her flame-wrapt home
She shriek d—My child ! my child'
1 A wanderer from the sea,
A stranger mark'd tier woe,
And in his generous bosom woke
The sympathetic glow.
Swift «p the burning stairs
With darting feet lie flew,
While sable clouds of stifling smoke
Conceal’d him from the view.
Fast fell the blazing beams
Across his dangerous road,
Till the far chamber where iio grop'd
Like fiery furnace glow'd.
But what a pealing shout!
When from the wreck he cainc,
And in his arms a smiling babe
Still toying with the flame
The mother's ruptur’d tears
Forth like a torrent sped,
Yet ere the throng could learn his name,
That noble tar had fled.
Not for the praise of man
Did lie this deed of love,
But on a bright unHiding page
'Tis register'll above.

COMPARISON OF TIIE CUM ATE OF

It is almost a matter of course to de
cry the climate of England. The Eng
lish writers themselves talk of the suit i
dal months, and it is the only country
where a part of the livery of a mounted
groom is his master’s great coat strapped
about his waist.—lt is certainly a damp
climate, and the sun shines Jess in Eng
land than in most other countries. Rut
to persons of full habit, this moisture in
the air is extremely agreeable ; and the
high condition of animals in England,
from inan downwards, proves its health-1
fulness. ' A stranger who has been aeons- j
tomed to a brighter sky. will at first, find !
a gloom in the gray light so character
istic of an English atmosphere, luit this
soon wears oft'and he limis a compensa
tion as far as the eye is concerned, in
the exquisite softness of the verdure, and
the deep and enduring brightness of the
foliage. The effect of this moisture on
the skin is singularly grateful. The pores
become accustomed to a healthy action, i
which is unknown in other countries;!
and the bloom by which the English com
plexion is known all over the world, is j
the iudex of an activity in this important
part of the system, which, when first ex- j
perienced, is almost alike anew sensa
tion. The transition to a dry climate,!
such as ours, deteriorates the condition j
and quality of the skin, and produces a!
feeling, it 1 may so express it, like that of j
being glazed. It is a remark in England,
that an officer's wife and daughters follow
his regiment to Canada at the expense of
their complexions : and it is a well know n
fact that the bloom of beauty is, in our
country, painfully evanescent.
The climate of America is, in many j
points very different front that of Franco!
and Great Britain. 111 tlio middle and |
notheru dates it is a drv, invigorating,
bracing climate, in wliieli a strung man
may do more work than in almost any )
other, anil which makes continual exer- •
rises, or occupation, of some sort, abso
lutely necessary. With the exception of
tlie “Indian Summer,” and here and there
a day scattered through the spring and
the hot months there is no weather tem
pered so finelv that one would think of
passing the dav in merely enjoying it,
and life is passed by those who have the
misfortune to he idle, in continual and
active dread of the elements. Tlie cold
is «o acid, and the heat so sultry, and the
changes from one to tlie other ate so sod
den and violent, that no enjoyment can
he depended upon out of doors, and no
system of clothing or protection is good
for a day together. lie who has foil oc
cupation for lt°:td and hand, (as by far
lliogreStest majority of our countrymen
have,) mav live as long in America as in
any portion of the globe—vide the bills
of mortality. He whose spirits lean up
on the temperature of the I, or whose
nerves require, a genial and constant at
mosphere, may find more favorable cli
mates ; and tlie habits and delicate con
stitutions of scholars arid pr pin of m>-
dentat '."pursuitsgcnerall. in the U. Slab -q
prove the truth of observations.
The habit of regtilaV'exercise in tire o
pen air which is found to be so salutary
in England, is scarcely possible in Airier- 1
ica. It is said, and said truly, of the first,
that there is 110 day in the year when a
-• 1 !y may not ride comfortably on horse*
■ bacV, but with us, the extremes of heat
and coin, and the tempestuous character
ot our -nows atyd rain, totally forbid to a
d‘ icatt ji'-ryoi), any thinglike regularity
fri e.v m-' I’te* consequence i« tiiat the
j habit rarely exists, and the high glowing
. health so common in England, and con-
I sequent no doubt upon the equable char
acter of the climate in some measure, is
| with us sufficiently rare to excite remarks.
“Very English looking,” is a common
phrase, and means wry healthy looking.
Still our people fast — and though 1 should
j define the English climate as the one in
'which the human frame is in the highest
J condition, 1 should say of America, that
Jit is the one in which you can get the
most work out of it.
Atmosphere in England and America,
is the first of the necessaries of life. In
Italy it is the first of its luxuries. We
j breathe and w alk abroad, without think
ing of these common acts but as means
iof arriving at happiness. In Italy, to
j breath and w alk abroad are themselves
happiness. Day after day—week after
week—month after month—you wake
with the breath of flowers coining in at
your open window, and a sky of serene
and unfathomable blue, and mornings and
evenings of tranquil, assured, heavenly
purity and beauty. The few weeks of
the rainy seasons are forgotten in these
long halcyon months of sunshine. No
one can have lived in Italy a year, who
remembers any thing but the sapphire sky
and the kindling and ever seen stars. You
grow insensibly to associate the sunshine
and moonlight only with the fountain you
have lived near, or the columns of the
i temple you have seen from \oiir window,
for no objects in other lands have you'
seen their light so constant.
R apidity or Comhixk: \tio\. —We
have been permitted to make extracts
from the official logbook kept at the Liver
pool Telegraph-office, and by it. we are
in possession of instances of extraordi
nary rapidity of communication exactly
at tint* o’clock, through the whole line
from Liverpool to llolvhead, in order
that the different signal-men may regu
late their time-pieces ; this is done by a
I peculiar signal made exactly as the clock
| strikes one, which notifies the time, and
; ask the question, “Is (here any thing to re- 1
; port !” An acknowledgment or answer
I to this is returned, either “ Yes” or “No,” j
las the case may he. The distance from
j Liverpool to Holyhead, from station to
; station, is 7"2 miles, hence there and hack,
144 miles, and this signal arid answer is
considered unusually long if it occupies!
one minute. Wc find from the extract
I above-mentioned, that the month of Sep
tember, in which, by the by, weliavelndi
j much stormy and bad weather, this sig
nal has been seen on IS different days ; j
tin: distance (lie signal must have passed
in those Its times must lie miles,!
which has been done m the incredibly'
short space ol Hi minutes and ,7 seconds, 1
being an au rago of Hi miles per minute
In 17 of the days mentioned, the distance
"**>4-1W miles, the time occupied was 1 !
minutes, .7 seconds, a\erago 17.7 miles
per minute. In I I of the shortest peri
ods, the distance was 1,554 miles, time,
occupied 7 minutes, .7 seconds, \!'Js miles
In taking (lie five quickest communica
tions during the month we liml the dis
tance to have been 7“i> miles, the time
occupied ‘2 minutes HI) seconds, being an
average ot '230 miles per minute. The
shortest time during the month was on
the Kith, when the signal passed, and the
answer was returned in '2-7 seconds. When
it is considered that there are 1 1 different
telegaaph stations, and only one man at
each station, this will appear the more
extraordinary, and speaks favorably ot
the management of Lieutenant Watson,
under whose superintendence the tele
graph was first established, and still con

Good Examples. We occasionally hear
of a simpering doable refined young lady
boasting that she never labored, and could
not for the fife of her make a pudding, as
though ignorance of these matters was a
mark of gentility, and a leaning towards
European nobility. There can lie no
greater proof of silly arrogance than such
remarks ; for the especial benefit of such
we would kindly inform them that Mad
ame de Heidis supported the family of
, the Duke de Orleans (and among them
is the present reigning monarch of France)
in Loudon, by the sale of her drawings,
one of the Duchesses of the same court
maintained herself and husband at Rath
by teaching a music school,and the Queen
herself kept her family by plaiting bonnets.
These examples we hope, will have their
influence, where examples, of our own
good country women would be spurned as
v ulgar republican morals.

“Tvi.kino Turkey.” The exact sig- '
1 nilication of this phrase has recently been
discussed by some of our cotemporaries,
and has been finally settled by the Oneida
Democrat, which gives an account ot its
origin. An Indian and a white man!
went a shooting in partnership, and a wild
turkey and a crow were all the result of
the day’s toil. The white man, in the!
usual style of making a bargain with the
Indian, proposed a division of the spoils
in this way : “Now, Wampum, you may!
have choice, you take the crow and I'll
take the turkey, or if you’d rather I’ll take
the turkey and you take the crow.”—
\\ ampmu reflected a moment on the gen
erous alternative thus offered, and replied |
—T'gli! you no talk turkey to me a Lit.’
Latin' vs. Lvw. An English divine,
in the year ISKiI, brought a suit against
Ids parishioners for amount of expenses
incurred by paving the road leading to)
liis church, and recovered the full amount
by compiling in the following classical
manner, with a requisition of the court,
that ho would prove the legality of his j
claim from the holy scriptures. “/V

of God, which lie translated thus: “they

CARET’S LIBRARY OF CHOICE
r 110 say that this is a reading age, implies a
A desire for instruction, and the means to
gratify that desire, on the first point, all are a
, greed ; ou the second, there is diversity both
'of opinion and practice. We have newspa
pers, magazines, reviews, in fine, pamphlets ot
all sizes, on nearly all subjects, which have
severally their classes of readers and support
ers. And yet copious as are these means of
intellectual supply, more are still needed. In
addition to the review., of the day and passing
notices of books, the people in large numbers,
in all parts of our great republic crave the pos
session of tlie books themselves, anti details,
ile yond mere passing allusion, of the progress
of discovery in art and science. But though it
be easy to ascertain and express their wants, it
is not so easy to gratify them. Expense, dis
tance from the emporium of literature, engross
ing occupations which prevent personal appli
cation ofeven messages to libraries and book
sellers, are so many causes to keep people a
v. ay from the feast of reason and the enjoyment
<d’the covered literary aliment It is the ob
ject of the publishers of the Library to obviate
these difficulties, and to enable every individ
ual. at a small cost and without any personal
effort, to obtain for his own use and that of his
lavored friends or family, valuable works, com
plete, on all the branches of useful wild popular
literature, and that in a form adapted to the
coinfort of the reader.
The charm of variety, as far as it is compati
‘ hie with morality and good taste, will be held
constantly in view in conducting the Library,
1 to iill the pages of which the current literature
of Groat Britain, in all its various departments
• of biography, history, travels, novels and poe
try, shall be freely put under contribution.—
With perchance occasional exceptions, it is in
tended to give entire the work which shall be
selected for publication. When circumstances
authorize the measure, recourse will be had to
i the literary stores of Continental Europe, and
1 translations made from French, Italian or Ger
man, ns the case may be.
Whilst the body of the work will be a reprint,
i or at times a translation of entire volumes, the
cover will exhibit the miscellaneous character
of a magazine, and consist of sketches of men
! and tilings, and notices of novelties in literature
| and the arts throughout the civilized ivorld.—
! A full and regular supply of the literary, month

The resources and extensive correspondence
; of the publishers are the best guarantee for the
continuance of the enterprize in which they
are about to embark, as well as for the abun
dance of the materials to give it value in the
eyes of the public. As far as judicious selec
tion ami arrangement arc concerned, readers

TERMS THREE HOLLARS A YEAR.
THE LADIES COMPANION, a month
ly periodical, commenced on the broad
grounds of diffusing general information, far
j and wide—at a price, which is within the reach
jof all classes of the community. The plan has
: succeeded beyond the most sanguine anticipa
! tioiis of the proprietor. The first number was
j issued to the public, with only seventeen names
of subscribers, and at this day it boasts of a cir
■ dilation nearly double that of any monthly
Magazine in America; and is daily increasing,
at an average of twenty subscribers. In tlie
pages of the Ladies Companion, every class of
readers will find that w nich will tend' to their
enjoyment; tales, of every nature,pathetic and
humorous; choice essays and sketches by the
best writers of the day ; literary and scientific
intelligence; copious extracts from American
and English Annuals; strictures on the drama
I and fine arts ; notices of all the new publications
las they issue from the press; translations from
the French, Spanish, Greek, German, Italian
and Hebrew languages; original and selected
poetry; original music and Engravings, with
tine wood cuts and patterns of embroidery ol
1 every description, independent of r.n immense
variety of miscellaneous articles on every sub
ject of the least interest to the most casual
reader, embracing passing events ; biographi
j cal sketches of noted individuals ; discoveries
‘in the arts and sciences, tVc. &e. Ac.; accounts
, of colleges and American institutions ; sketches
i from scenery of our own country ; public as
semblies, painting, popular lectures, speakers
, and authors ; view of olden times of tlie city of

I Good Society, «Xe. «!kc. Embellished monthly
i with a splendid Steel Engraving ; popular mu
! sic—original and selected ; and Embroidery for
j the working of lace patterns. In short nothing
! required to insure interest, amusement, or the
J improvement of the mind in the pages of the
! Ladies Companion, will be wanting on the
! part of the proprietor, and it will be—
i “With sweetest flowers enrich’d,
From various gardens cull’d with care.”

pages of the Ladies Companion, during the two
