lam tlie happiest of fathers! my son
Simon has commenced poet! 1 have often told
him he should inherit the reputation of his fa
ther. Only imagine, then, my pleasure this
morning, when he came to me with his first es
say in poetry—Here, said he, are a few lines I
think as pithy as any of Pope’s Dunciad. The
hint I took from the Frenchman who sold brick
dust to kill fleas ! the amplification, is all my
own.” My son’s modesty pleased me as much
as his fines. All of our family, said I, have had
genius, and von fortunate child, are more fa
vored than all your ancestors! ‘Stop—said my
wife Abigail, I think a mother may claim a share
in a son’s genius—were not the Vantitantick-
Jer’s great men too ?’ Yes wife, I allow they
were. ‘ You have a mother’s blessing’ said site
to Simon, and a father’s too said I. This must
have cost you a great deal of labor ? no, said lie
only two days ! Bless me—these in two days!
YVhat may you not do in forty years!!!—and
Such perfection the first effort!!! Orthogra
phy, etymology,syntax, and prosody—in short,
you have attended to all the laws of versifica
tion. Simon has fears, that someone who may
haye wrote long before his time, has stolen some
of his best ideas—but I tell him not to be dis
cotiragcvjVne misfortune has happened
celebrated autho'nr I hate to be tedi
ous, or 1 should say mure in\he praise of Simon.
Here ore the lines, they w?HJ speak nice tor
Id’M, than I can. I know, hovneveriLy.iu will be
delighted: V ”
Anew method for killing Fleas.

Here’s moon-grease for, you!
Thank ye, thank ye, mr Quint,
Pray, how d’y e use it l
Why, catch p flee asleep,
Tickle him till he laughs,
Then put it in his mouth-**

We understand that a K tter lias been receiv j

ing information that the U. S troops in the vi
cinity of that post and St Mary’s, had been j
forthwith ordered to Fort Scott It is conjee

Capt. Hamilton, of the brig Alabama, ar
rived here yesterday, in 17 days from Ha

healthy, and no apprehension of war with
the United States, nor any preparations
making to send troops to Florida—the
troops which had arrived from Spain, had
been very sickly, about one third had died
the governor had began to quarter them in
the city, one regiment was already station

planters were apprehensive that the Brit
ish wished to possess themselves of the
Island of Cuba, and were extremely oppo

respectable members of the chamber of
commerce, that nothing was more distant
from the thoughts of the king, his master,
than ceding Cuba to Great Britain,

Latest from Europe.
By the ship Jane, capt. Gumming, arrived here
yesterday in 44 days from Greenock, we have a |
regular file of Scotch papers to the Kith Novem
ber ; some extracts from which will be found in
this day’s Courier.
The spirit of the Radicals continues to display
i itself in England, and is extending its influence
into Scotland. A meeting was held at Glasgow
on the Ist Nov. which was attended by the Re
formers of that city and its vicinity ; the crowd
was immense, and among them many females.—
They separated at 5 o’clock without disturbance.
A similar meeting of the Renfrewshire Reform
ers took place the same day near Paisley. The
| multitude assembled here did not proceed to any
excesses, but the precautions taken by the ma
’ gistracy are alone supposed to have prevented it.
, Many of the Reformers, it is asserted, were pro
vided with pikes, daggers, and other weapons of
defence. A meeting was held at Kilsyth on the
j same day, where the assemblage was very great.
Loyal and constitutional meetings have also
! been held in many places in Scotland, forthe pur
j pose of addressing the Prince Regent, and ten
dering him their aid in the present disturbed
state of the country.
j Details of these Radical and Loyal meetings
’ occupy nearly the whole of the papers we have
Commercial letters by the Jane are to the 11th

GLASGOW, Nov. 4.
The meeting of the radical reformers at
London, on Monday last, dr. Watson in
the chair, passed over quietly ; it was far
from being numerously attended. A se
ries of resoultions, of the usual tenor,
were unanimously agreed to ; as also, an
address to the prince regent. The ad
dress was of great length, it took nearly
an hour to read it. ,

The Yeomanry cavalrv in the midland
and northern counties , of England, have,
, by letters from the Secretary of the home
department,been called upon to hold them
selves in readiness to assist the civil au
thorities in case of necessity.
At a meeting of the county of North
umberland on Saturday last, called by his
grace the lord lieutenant and custos rotu

sjtatin. that trade was much brisker last
wVek tit has been for a considerable

mannVactures, but colonial commodities
have riqen in price, and the transac l '’ “*
have been rfFstich afl extent as to effect
some improvement in the foreign exchan
ges. This gratifying t e*ul tis chiefly ow
ing to the yjYacity of the last Leipsic fair,
where all tlii British goods offered for sale
met with purchasers.—There is no doubt
that our manofactures will long continue
to be wanted in large quantities ; and, if
the supply could be judiciously regulated,
they would ot course yield fair profits. It
is however to bp regretted that for some
years the supply has overgrown the de
mand, and the great overplus of weavers
makes it but too probable that the same
distressing circumstance will continue to
impair the general trade. It is otherwise
with those branches which depend upon
the fashions; in which the difficulty of
procuring information obviates the danger
jot an over-stock. It meiit^lspecial re
mark that these manufacturer |who have
brought forward goods for home consump
tion or fora foreign market whose fluctua
tions were properly attended to, have gen
erally prospered. Every prudent person
will consider the circumstances of the con
sumption, and not embark his fortune in
making goods about which he can tell
nothing but that they were in demand a
month or two ago by exporters in London.
Stocks are recovering though slowly,
from their late fall. On Saturday Consols

LONDON, Nov. j.
Our correspondent at North Shields,
says—“ The duke of Northumberland, fol
lowing the footsteps of his gallant father,
has sent notice to all his late volunteer
tenantry, infantry and cafalry, that their
sei vices and those of other patriotic defen
ders of the crown and constitution of the
country, will be accepted, and means ta
ken to lit them for service forthwith. There
needs but the sound of a bugle horn and
the regimental bagpipes, to rouse Northum
bria to join the standard of the illustrious
Percy in support of king Geo. 111. and the
constitution as by law established.”
