BY MRS. SIGOURNEY.
Drink, friends, drink deep—the noon is nigh ;
Drink, and forget your care—
The sultry summer suns are high—
Drink, and your strength repair :
The deer, that Horn the hunter flies,
The warrior, red with slaughter,
The camel, ’neath the burning skies,
Quaff deep the crystal water !
Our father, Sun, the example giver,
Our mother, Earth, also ;
He, jocund, drinks above the clouds,
She, blushing, drinks below,
Pledge high, pledge long, the friends you love,
To absent wife and daughter
Or blooming maid who rules your heart,
Drink deep—but only u atcr!
' [N. Y. Mirror.
When pleasure lags at music’s strain,
And mirth assails the heart in vain :
To pensive thoughts the bosom bends,
And finds a theme in Absent Friends.
Remembrance then unfolds its store ;
Affection's tales oR told before,
And fancy magic vision lends,
To catch a view of Absent Friends.
Pale apprehension starts with fear,
Some sad vicissitude to hear;
And hope with causeless terror blends,
For fate unknown of Absent friends.
The parent fond, the duteous child.
The feeling heart by love beguil'd,
Each to kind heaven a boon commends,
That heaven be kind to Absent friends.
Constrain’d thro’ distant climes to roam,
Far from the sympathies of home ;
My soul its fervent wishes sends,
And circles round its Absent Friends
Rut joy shall spread a brighter train,
And mirth indulge its freest strain,
The happy day which absence ends,
And gives me back, my much lured Friends.

THE BRIDAL EVE.
A TALE OF 803T0.V IN Till’ OLDEN TIMES.
In a retired avenue in the rear of
Washington st. and near the ever to he
remembered “Old South,” stands a ven
erable pile, surmounted by the uncouth
figure of a grim son ol’the forest,yet known
as the Province house. This building i
was once the gay head quarters of the
commander in chief of England’s colo
nial troops. Yes, that antique relic of a 1
departed age where now the busy and
important “cit” resorts to enjoy his
“Havana,” and recruit his temporal man
with life’s luxuries, was in olden times,
the proud court of a king's military am
Some six months after the incidents
preceding, were seated round a table in
this mansion a few gav young oilicers of
the English army. Mirth and hilarity
seemed to reign triumphant. Among the
number not the least conspicious, sat
Lord B ; and if the “human face
divine” be an index to the heart, he would
have been pronounced the happiest one
of the group.
“My Lord of B said young
Col. G., a conceited and good humored j
officer, “what a lucky dog are you ! And!
then the mortification and envy you have
caused a score of others by your good
fortune. Pon honor, 1 was just on the
point of attempting an assault on her my
self A lovely wife—and, what is better,
a plum by the way of settlement on your
marriage—a fine prospect for a king’s of
ficer in this cursed Yankee land. 1 wish
to heaven there was another wealthy and
beautiful loyal nymph hereabouts. 1
would make her happy, as 1 live, for we
have nothing else to lay siege to at pres
ent.” A shout of merriment followed the
colonel’s confident speech.
“My gallant colonel,” said a more
grave major, “I fear you will never suc
ceed in your feminine sieges—You al
ways set the lucre foremost in the articles
of war. Believe me you will never gain
a damsel’s heart by courting her daddy’s
“Do'ut be too hard, my good major :
my mind wanders to that which is most
needful. These Yankee sharpers can
drain British purses, even though they
excel m nothing. But let us drop this,
and drink to the health of the fair Miss
H., and our good Lord Arthur, not for
getting the approaching festivity, which,
thank heaven, will be one bright *pot in
-our dark career.” n,
We leave this merry company, and re
turn to the quarters of Lord B .
Seated on a couch in this apartment is
the youthful messenger, Eugene. Rgit
how changed since the eventful 'night of
his arrival. A few months of deep corrod
ing anguish hadmadc a fearful contrast in
his fair form. The jolly and short cur
ling hair is thrown aside, and from the
fair brow flow luxuriant locks of beauti
fully tinged auburn. The flashing, fear
ful eyes, the flushed cheeks, the firmly
lips, and heaving bosom, reveal to
Bthe reader the ardent, devoted Lady Julia.
* Near at hand stands, regarding her with
respectful look, the valet Ralph. After a
x>ng and agonizing indulgence in her
„ *ro«, the lady raised her head and spoke.
| “For this painful confirmation of my sus
picions I thank thee, my kind Ralph.
1 Now that his falsehood is truly unmasked
—now that I feel he has filled i«*y cup of
! bitterness to the brim — 1 will witness
| with my own eyes’ these blasting events
jto my young hopes. O, Ralph, what
! have I not sacrificed for this man ?—this
! base hearted monster! Have 1 not suf
-1 sered exile from my native land, and pas
sed even the bounds of my sex to behold
bis smile—to breathe the same air that is
charmed by his presence ? Have I not
sacrificed home, friends, comfort, perhaps
my own proud name, for this false
» “True, madam. But cannot your
feigned report of loss of fortune, and
your great distance—the long period since
his leaving England—be some atonement
for master’s untruth?”
“No Ralph, this will not atone for
wrongs like mine. It was but a foolish
romantic whim of mine, to witness its
efleet on him: for this I bore to him ;ny
own letters, —and oh ! the love and devo
tion he showered on my thirsty spirit on
that night of our meeting. Little knew lie
who listened and feasted on every word.
Had the fond delusion of that night exis
ted unbroken for one short week, how
gladly would I have thrown off all dis
guise, and surrendered myself, my fortune,
and my whole soul to him ! But to be
thus cast off, slighted and forgotten !
Shall the last of my proud, and ancient
line be thrown aside by him who once
thought, lived, and breathed but in my
presence ; and all this for an acquaintance
of an hour!—No, Ralph, I have fed upon
bis bounty like a dog, and of late, bis very
brute lias had more smiles and kind
looks than the neglected and despised
I Eugene. But 1 have passed the bound
'of maiden honor—from shame and an j
insulted spirit there is no retreat. There I
yet remains revenge ! Revenge, such as !
woman’s heart can only dream! My
kind Ralph, you have been faithful to me:
he silent yet, and leave.”
Another Hood of scalding tears burst j
from her wild and flashing eyes, and site ,
bent her aching head upon the couch in
Bright and joyous was the festal on the
night destined for the marriage of Lord
Arthur B and the lovely Miss If .
Her father’s mansion was filled with fair 1
ladies and gay officers of the king, and'
the “bright l;iinps*s!ionc o'er bright wo
men and brave men.” Sweet music fill
ed flic ball, and proud figures, clad in
scarlet undjrold, blended with those of
virgin whiteness, flitted through the ma
zy figures of the giddy dance. All pres
ent appeared joyful and light hearted save
one. In the deep recess of a w indow
stood a pale boy. An unnatural bright
ness beamed from his dark eves, and he|
seemed not to note the gaiety before him.
The gushing melody that floated through
the brilliant apartment and the ringing
laugh of youth, fell not in gladness on his
ear. There was no room for the joys
•within the bursting heart of that lone
The hour for the ceremony drew near,
but where are the happy beings for whom
i this festive circle is gathered ? In a se
cluded arbor of the garden sat a youthful
| couple, conversing in a low and conliden
j tiul tone ; and how many blissful dreams
jof the future, and w hat high and happy
; hopes urged their delusive visions on the
minds of that young pair. They are
waited lor at the alter.—The aged father
of the young bride approaches the pale
Eugene. “Tell thy master that the hour
is at hand.” The hoy started like one
awakened from a dream—he looked a
rotuid with a wild amazement, then an
swered in a voice of hoarse, unearthlv
tone, “1 will.”
The agony expressed in those brief
words rang strangely on the happy group
around. The boy had vanished.
Suddenly a shriek rang through the
mansion that blanched the blood from
many a lovely cheek. All rushed to the
arbor. The young nobleman lay stretch
ed upon the earth —the life’s blood gush
ing from his heart, tinged with yet deep
!er shade his crimson attire. Sinking bv
his side was the slight figure of a youth ;
his open garment revealing the white ho
st) m of a female, with the undrawn dag
ger yet flashing within its faintly throbbing
heart. With the last exertion of fleeting
life she exclaimed, “Thisis my Revenge!
( This the fearful price of a blighted name
of woman’s wrongs!”
The bodies ol these victims of broken
truth were borne to their far distant native
land. The fair Emma II has long
since been laid in the family vault of an
cient “Copp’s.” All lias since changed
save the certainty that mankind are prone
to falsehood, and that vows, like bubbles,
are as easily broken as made.
A Tyrant’s Pastime. —King Louis
the Eleventh of France, ordered the Ab
bot of Baigne, a man of great wit, and
uvho had the knack of inventing new mu
sical instruments, to get him a concert of
j swine’s voices, thinking it impossible.
I The Abbot accordingly mustered up a
J number of hogs of several ages, and pla
-1 ced them under a pavillion covered with
velvet—before which he had a sound board
painted with a certain number of keys,—
thus making an organ : and as he played
on the keys with littlespikcs, whichprick
jed the hogs, lie made them cry in such a
tune and concert, as highly delighted the
| King and Court.

'CAREY’S LIBRARY OF CHOICE
TO say that this is a reading age, implies a
desire for instruction, and the means to
j gratify that desire, on the first point, all are a
! greed ; on the second, there is diversity both
of opinion and practice. We have newspa- !
I pers, magazines, reviews, in fine, pamphlets ot
■ all sizes, on nearly all subjects, which have j
I severally their classes of readers and support
' ers. And yet copious as axe these means ol j
intellectual supply, more are still needed. In
j addition to the reviews of the day and passing j
| notices of books, the peopje in large numbers,
j in all parts of our great republic crave the pos
j session of the books themselves, and details,
j beyond mere passing allusion, of the progress
jof discovery in art and science. Rut though it
! be easy to ascertain and express their wants, it
Jis not so easy to gratify them. Expense, dis
i tanee from the emporium of literature, engross !
! ing occupations which prevent personal appli
j cation of even messages to libraries and book j
j sellers, are so many causes to keep people a |
j way from the feast of reason and the enjoyment j
!of the covered literary aliment It is the oh j
I ject of the publishers of the l ibrary to obviate i
| these difficulties, and to enable every individ j
j ual, at a small cost and without any personal
! effort, to obtain for bis own use and that of his
iavored friends or family, valuable works, com- i
! plete, on all the branches of useful and popular i
i literature, and that in a form adapted to the
j comfort of the reader.
The charm of variety, as far as it is Compati
ble with morality and good taste, will be held
j constantly in view in conducting the Library, j
j to fill the pages of which the current literature
j of Great Britain, in all its various departments
of biography, history’, travels, novels and poe- !
■ try, shall be freely put under contribution. — j
I With perchance occasional exceptions, it is in
i tended to give entire the work which shall be j
j selected for publication. When circumstances
s authorize the measure, recourse will be had to
1 tin’ literary stores of Continental Europe, and :
| translations made from French, Italian or Ger
| man, as the case may be.
Whilst the body of the work will be a reprint,
j or at times a translation of entire volumes, the
j cover will exhibit the miscellaneous character
j of a magazine, and consist of sketches of men
and things, and notices of novelties in literature
: and the arts throughout the civilized world.— 1
j A full and regular supply of the literary, month- j
I ly and hebdomadal journals of Great Britain
( and Ireland, in addition to home periodicals of
a similar character, cannot fail to provide am- j
pie materials for this part of our work.
The resources and extensive correspondence
of the publishers are the best guarantee for the
continuance of the onterprize in which they ;
are about to embark, as well as for the abun- I
dance of the materials to give it value in the
eyes of the public. As far as judicious selec- 1
lion and arrangement are concerned, readers j
will it is hoped, have re ason to lie fully satisii >
ed, as the editor of the Library is not a stran
ger to them, but has more than once obtained ,
their favorable sul’rages for his past literary
The work will be published in weekly mini
hers, in sliteficd covers, each number contain
ing twenty imperial octavo panes, with double !
columns, making two volumes annually, ol
more than 520 octavo pages, each volume; and
<it the expiration of every six months, subscri
bers will be furnished with a handsome title
page and table of contents. The whole amount
of matter furnished in a single year, will he e
<|ual to more than forty volumes of the com- j
mou sized English duodecimo books. The pa i
per upon which the Library will be printed,
will be of the finest quality used for book work, I
and of a size admirable adapted for binding.— <
As the type will be entirely new, and of u neat 1
appearance, each volume when bound, will |
furnish a handsome as well as valuable, anil j
not cumbrous, addition to the libraries of those
who patronize the work.
The price of the Library will be Five Dollars
[a r annum, payable ill advance.
A commission of 20 per cent, will be allowed
to agents; and any agent or postmaster, fur
nishing five subscribers, and remitting the a
! mount of subscription, shall be entitled to the
commission of 20 per cent, or a copv of the
i work for one year.
Editors of newspapers, to whom this pros
| pectus is forwarded, will please insert the a
hove as often as convenient, and send a copy
of their paper containing the advertisement
marked, and entitle themselves to a free ex
change for one year. Address

IT cannot be denied that the present state ol
our country demands peculiar and well di
reefed activity on the part of the press to make
, known tile features of the various topics which
are now agitating the enrolls purlieus of the
national confederacy. To supply, at a low
price, the inland towns with information, at R
■ little delay only, after it has been received in
the Atlantic cities, is praiseworthy. and should
in the end reward such persons as exert their
ability lor the sileoessUtl furtherance of this ob
The Elinors and Proprietors of the Boston
Daily lie raid, convinced of the importance ol
a carefully conducted press to disseminate in
formation throughout the country, same weeks
since issued the first number of the Semi
WriKi.v Herald on Star. w hit’ll they have
found to be suitable to the wants of the inland
community, as it furnishes over one hundred
newspapers in a year, at the very low price ol
two dollars. This paper is made up from the
Daily Herald with such additional matter,,in
the shape of stories, legends, poetry, statements
of the markets, and such information respecting
sales as may be deemed advantageous to the
! yeomanry of the land.
The peculiarity of the Herald and Star will
be found to be in the fact that while it is not
engaged ill party politics, it reserves to itsell
the liberty’of speaking boldly and openly oil
every subject which concerns the weal of the
whole country—and summons to aid, besides
the constant supervision of the Editors, valua
ble assistants, who are industriously and hour
lv exerting themselves to give strength and a
bility to their various departments.
The Herald and Star is published every Tubs
day and Friday morning, and mailed on the
night previous in order to ensure its speedy
transmission by the mails.
The price is Two Dollars a year payable in
,j advance ; $2,25 in three months; <gtg,so in six

TERMS THREE DOLLARS A YEAR.
TII E LADIES COMPANION, a month
ly periodical, commenced on the broad
grounds of diffusing general information, far
and wide—at a price, which is within the reach
of all classes of the community. The plan has
succeeded beyond the most sanguine anticipa
tions of the proprietor. The first number was
issued to the public, with only seventeen names
of subscribers, and at this day it boasts of a cir
culation nearly double that of any monthly
Magazine in America; and is daily increasing,
at an average of twenty subscribers. In the
pages of the Ladies Companion, every class of
readers will find that which will tend to their
enjoyment; tales, of every nature, pathetic and I
humorous; choice essays and sketches by the
best writers of the day ; literary and scientific
intelligence; copious extracts from American
and Annuals; strictures on the drama
and fine arts; notices of all the new publications
as 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
fine wood cuts and patterns of embroidery ol
every description, independent of an immense
variety of miscellaneous articles on every sub- '
ject of the least interest to the most casual j
reader, embracing passing events ; biographi
cal sketches of noted individuals; discoveries
in the arts and sciences, &c. &e. Ac.; accounts
of colleges and American institutions; sketches
from scenery of our own country ; public as
semblies, painting, popular lectures, speakers
and authors; view of olden times of the city of
gotliam; Broadway Analyzed; comments on
Good Society, &c. &e. Embellished monthly
with a splendid Steel Engraving; popular mu
sic—original and selected ; and Embroidery for
the working of lace patterns. In short nothing
required to insure interest, amusement, or tilt
improvement of the mind in the pages of the
Ladies Companion, xvill be wanting on the
part of the proprietor, and it will be—
“With sweetest flowers enrich’d,
From various gardens cull'd with care.”
Articles from the pens of the first authors in
either Europe or America have appeared in the
pages of the Ladies Companion, during the two
last volumes, without reference to expense, too
numerous to name, which stamps it the cheap

It has ever been the aim of the proprietor to
inculcate and promote the cause ol morality.—
It cannot be denied that the periodical press
exercise a decided influence upon the moral
and intellectual character; and where that
press is untrammelled by mercenary consider
ations or vicious principles, it:: ellect must be
eli vating and refining to a community, like
that of America. With these views, everything
operating injuriously to morals or religion have
been studiously avoided and not allowed a place
in the Magazine; for, we bold those men as
traitors to their country, who would seek to de
stroy the pure doctrines of virtue and religion,
either by open opposition or secret intrigue,
hi sustaining the literary character of tiie La
dies Companion, the proprietor will not coniine
himself to the mere task of pleasing, without
imparting vigor to the mind ; but will endeavor
to present both, that which will be attractive
to superficial readers, us well us that which
will lurnish subjects for reflection to the stu
dent. No work in America presents its sub
| scribers with such a melengc of invaluable
reading as the Ladies Companion, for its ex
treinely low price (three dollars a year;) and
! letters are continually being received from Eu
; rope, inquiring how it is possible for a periodi
-1 cal to be issued at such a small rate, which j
proves its undeniable claims to the support ol :
the American people, particularly those of the ,
i state ol New York and adjacent ones,
i It is not generally known to the public that \
each number ot the Ladies Companion con
tains more reading than any other Magazine in ;
America ; and its suliscript.nn price is two dol
lars less than those issued in New York. A
| single page contains more than two pages of
the other Magazines, and some of them three,

! than one year. It is published on the 15th of

HAVING received a number of communi
cations from individuals, making enquir
ies respecting my Brick Machine, invented by
Calvin Waterman, and now in successful ope
ration in this place, 1 take Ibis method of an
swering them—l invite all who feel disposed
to purchase rights, to coir.e and see the opera
tion of the machine, and if there be any one
who says he is disappointed in his expectations,
I bind myself to pay the expenses of his trip
I dp not expect to sell a right to any one with
out their first having seen the machine ; but in
order to afford an idea of its value, I annex the
following certificates, one of them signed by
two of the most experienced brick masons in
the Southern States. In my absence from
Macon, the editors of the Messenger will act
as my authorized agents.
T. L. SMITH.
We having witnessed the performance of Mr
T. L. Smith's new Brick Machine, invented by
Calvin Waterman, now in operation in this
place, take pleasure in recommending it to the
public. The fact of its performance is its best
recommendation. We timed it, and find that
with new moulds and inexperienced hands, it
made at the rate of two thousand three hund
red and sixty-eight brick per hour. By mould
ing ten hours in a day, it would therefore turn
out twenty-three thousand six hundred per day.
It requires six boys to bear oft’, and four to sand
the moulds, &c.—together with four grown
men. Thus fourteen hands are sufficient to
make the above named quantity of the most
beautiful brick per day.
DAVID F. WILSON.
Macon, April 14, 1837.
I have witnessed the performance of Mr T.
L. Smith’s new Brick-making Machine, just
put into operation in this place : and have no
hesitation in pronouncing it a great and useful
improvement on any other method of brick
making I have ever seen, both as to the quality
of the brick and expedition in making. By re
quest I timed the machine for half an hour;
the result of that trial shows that with 14 hands
the machine will turn out of beautiful and well
tempered brick, 2,368 in one hour, or about. 4U

OWING to the intended removal of one of
the Editors and the wish of the other to
devote himselfmore exclusively to the duties
of his profession, the undersigned offer for sale
the establishment of the North Carolina Jour
nal Office. The office is well found in Job,
newspaper and ornamental type, the list of sub
scribers is tolerably large, and they doubt not
might lie greatly augmented by a little exertion.
To any person desirous of embarking in the
business it offers inducements not inferior to
any in the State, but to a practical printer they
know of no investment lie could make of Ins
money that would yield him a more profitable
return. HYBART & STRANGE.

with the Press and consequent knowledge of
its peculiar requisitions and benefits from such
si 11 Agency, and his extensive personal acquain
