WHIMSICAL MARRIAGE. merchant, originally come from Paris, haying acquired a great fortune in one of the French West India Islands, concluded with'himself he could not be happy in the enjdyment of it, unless he shared it With a worhaft of merit ; and knowing none to his fancy, he resolved to write to a worthy cor-, respondent of his at Paris. He knew no other style'than that he used in his trade ; therefore, treating of affairs of love as he did his business, after giving his friend in a letter several commissions, and reserving this for the last, he went on thus : “ Item —Seeing that I have taken a reso lution to marry, and that Jdo not find a suitable match for me here, do not fail to send, by next ship, bound hither, a young woman of the qualifications and form fol lowing. As for a portion, I demand none. Let her be of an honest family, between 20 and 25 years of age, of a middle stature, . and well proportioned, her face agreeable, her temper mild, her character blameless, her health good, and her constitution strong enough to bear the change of the cli mate, that there may be no occasion to look ojjt for a second, through lack of the first soon after she hand, which must be provided much as possible, considering the great distance and danger of tlre f 'iea. If she arrives here, conditioned as above said, with the present letter en dorsed by you, or at least an attested copy thereof, that there may be no mistake or imposition, I hereby oblige-and engage to satisfy the said letter by marrying the bear er at fifteen days sight. In witness there of, L subscribe this, &c. Parisian correspondent read over and over this odd article, which put the fu ture spouse on the same footing with the bales of goods he was to send to his friend; and, after admiring the prudent exactness of the merchant, and his laconic style in e numerating the qualifications which he in sisted on, he endeavored to serve him to* his mind ; and after many inquiries, he judg ed he had found a lady fit for his purpose, in a young person of reputable family, but no fortune, of good humor and of a polite education, well-shaped and more than tol erably handsome. He made (he proposal toher as his friend had diyected ; and the young gentlewoman, who had no substaqce but from a cross old aunt, who gave her a great deal of uneasiness, accepted it. A ship bound for that island was then fitting for. Rochelle ; the gentlewoman went on board the same, together with the bales of goods, being well provided with all neces saries, and particularly with a certificate in due form endorsed by the correspondent. She was also included in the. invoice, the last article of which runs thus : Jtem —A young gentlewoman of twenty five years of age, of the quality and shape and conditioned as per order, as appears by the affidavits and certificates she has to produce.” The writings which were thought neces sary for so exact a man as her future hus band, were, an extract of the parish regis ter ; a certifidate of her character, signed by the curate ; an attestation of her neigh bors, setting forth that she had for the space of three years lived with an old aunt who was intolerably peevish, and had not dur ing all that time given her said aunt the least occasion of complaint ; and lastly, the goodness of her constitution was certifi ed, after the consultation by four noted physicians. Before the gentlewoman’s de parture, the Parisian correspondent sent several letters of advice by other ships to his friend, whereby he informed him that per such a ship he should send a young woman, of such an age, character, and condition, &c., in a word, such as he desir ed to marry; The letters of advice, the bales, and the gentlewoman came safe to port ; and our merchant, who happened to be one of the foremost on the pier, at the lady’s landing, was charmed to see a hand some person, who, having heard him called by his name, told him— “ Sir, I have a bill of exchange for you, and you know that it is not usual for peo ple to carry a great deal of money about thpm in such a long voyage as I have now made. I beg the favor you will be pleased to pay it.” At the same time she gave him his cor respondent’s letter, on the back of which was written : “ The bearer of this is the spouse you ordered me to send you.” “ Ah, madam !” said the merchant, “ I never yet suffered my bills to be protested ; and I assure you, this shall not be the first. I shall reckon myself the most for tunate of all men, if you allow r me to dis charge it.” “ Yes, sir,” replied she, “ and the more willingly since I am apprised of your char acter. VVe had several persons of honor on board, who knew you very well, and who, during my passage, answered all the ques tions I asked concerning you, in so advan tageous a manner, that it has raised in me a perfect esteem for you.” The first interview was in a few days af ter followed by the nuptials, which were very magnificent. The new married cou ple were extremely W'ell satisfied with their happy- union made by a bill of ex change, which was the most fortunate that had happened in that island for many years. From the Albany Cultivator. MAKING AUGER HOLES WITH A GIMBLET. “,.My boy what are you doing there with thqt gimblet ?” said I the other morning to a flaxen headed urchin, who was laboring away with all his might at a piece of board before him. “ Trying to make an augur hole !” was his reply, without raising his eyes or suspending his operations. “ Precisely the-business of at least two thirds of the world, in this blessed year of our. Lord 1840, is this making augur holes with a gimblet;” I said to myself, as I waked musingly onward. Here is young A., who has just escaped from the clerk s desk behind the counter. He sports his mustaches; wears his hair long ; has acquiring power of being shaved, carries a ratan ; drinks champaign when he can oommand an X to purchase a bottle and treat a friend to a dinner ; talks large of the price current all of western stocks and profits of banking-; stands in his boots two inches higher than Astor or Appleton ; and speaks of foreign exchanges as would Rothschild or Biddle. He thinks he is a great man, when all others know he is on ly making augur holes with a gimblet. Mr. B. is a rabid politician. He has labored hard at caucuses, at ward and town meetings, has talked of the dear peo ple till the words flow parrot like from his lips, and has done a full share of the dirty work of party for years. Office has been the lure held out to lead him onw-ards, and which has made him neglect his business, spend his time in hunting up recruits, dril ling the refractory, and qualifying himself for bar-room argument and stump oratory. He can settle the affairs of the nation in a trice; diplomacy has no intricacies for him ; he has shaken hands with the Presi dent, and is a great man. He will soon be used up, and cast aside ; and will then see, as others now do, that he is chasing a jack o’lantem, that he is making auger holes with a gimblet. There is Miss C., who is really a pretty girl, and who might become a woman a man of sense would be proud of. Now she apes the ton in all things; reads exciting novels ; goes to the opera, admires Celes te’s dancing, has nearly ceased to blush at the most indecent nudity, lounges on sofas, glories in her idleness, keeps her bed till noon, coquets with male animals as femi nine as herself, imagines she is a belle, for gets that her father was a cooper, lisps of high life, and plcbian presumption, and is in a fair way to ruin herself. All this cwr.es of her belief that an augur hole can y made by a gimblet. /£ Mr. D., whom I have just passed, may be put down as a distinguished professor of the gimblet. He was a farmer. His lather left him a fine farm free of incumbrance ; but speculation became rife, fortunes were made in a twinkling, and D. fancied “one thing could be done as well as another.”— So he sold his farm, and bought wild lands in the prairies, and corner lots in lithogra phed cities ; and began to dream of wealth worthy of “golden Ind.” Work he could not; it had suddenly become degrading.— Who could think of tilling or being content ed with a acres of land, when thousands of acres in the broad west were waiting for occupants or owner. D. was not the man to do it, and he operated to the extent of his means. At last the land bubble broke; lithographed cities were discovered to be mere bogs, and prairie farms, though the basis ofexhaustless weath, worthless unless rendered productive by labor. But D.’s beautiful farm is gone, and as he is now preparing on compulsion to become a pio neer in the west, he feels that it is difficult to make augur holes with a gimblet. Mr. E. is the representative of quite a class. He had his attention awakened to the subject of religion, and obtained new views of its importance and his own obliga tions. Believing what cannot be disputed, that love to God and good will to man, is the only true source ofhappiness and feel ing, as every benevolent mind must, a de sire for the welfare of his race ho fancied himself called to declare these truths to the world ; and forsaking his lapstone, his an vil, or his plough, became without delay an expounder of the scripture, a self-delega ted instructor of mankind. He forgot that the age of miracles had ceased ; and that the ability to teach must now be acquired by the slow but necessary process of hu man learning. lie begins to have misgiv ings that he has mistaken his call ; and will probably discover, when too late to rectify the error, that he has spent the best half of his life in trying to make auger holes with a gimblet. NEWS AND GAZETTE. PRINCIPLES ami MEN. , WASHINGTON, GA. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1840. Savannah Republican. Since this paper has come into the hands of Messrs. Locke and Davis, we notice a very striking improvement in its appear ance, and editorial management. It is en larged and beautifully printed, and well merits the patronage of those who desire the commercial news from our principal sea port. It is particularly worthy of the sup port of the Whigs, as being one of the first (if not the first) paper in the State that de clared itself for Harrison. New York Election Frauds. Our exchange papers from all directions are filled with accounts of the investiga tions which have lately taken place in New’ York, relative to the election frauds alleged to have taken place in 1838. Se veral of the most influential and respect able Whig citizens of New York are ac cused by one J. D. Stevenson of having been largely engaged through the agency J. B. Glentworth, in importing illegal vo ters into the city, from Philadelphia. The deposition of Stevenson is contradicted by those of Glentworth and others; and the only conclusion we can come to, after wad ing Airough the mass of testimony, is that one party or the other has sworn to a false hood, and perhaps both—for both parties in New York, may defy the world to beat them in political rascality. The Whig papers assert, with agood deal of plausibility, the whole matter is a hum bug—the “last card” of the Van Buren party ; and the circumstance that for two years the affair has been permitted to lie dormant, and was brought up lately upon the eve of the Presidential election seems to favor the assertion. We do not think it of sufficient importance to the people of this section to justify filling our paper with the tedious details of the investigation, especi ally as it it is one of those things that will interest nobody now that the elections are over. 0.K.! Presidential Election. GEORGIA. In 80 counties the Harrison majority is 8,323, a gain since the Oct >ber Election of 4,2ss—Hurrah lor us. PENNSYLVANIA, Has probably gone for Harrison by a very small -majority. The Whig papers claim a majority of from 400 to 600. The Van Buren papers express confidence that the State will give its Electoral votes to their Candidate. They are whistling to keep their spirits up. Nothing can be known with certainty until the Official Returns as received, which will be by our next week’s paper. If this State has gone for Harrison, it has done better than we expected. NEW-YORK. In New-Yoi‘k city the Locofocos have 1 succeeded by 1,110 majority. Few of the counties heard from. The Stutc is consid ered safe for Harrison by about 15,000 majority. NEW-JERSEY. The Whigs have carried this State, the returns which have been received, show a gain on the October Election of 779. VIRGINIA. Out of one hundred and twenty-one counties in the State, sixty-seven have been heard from, giving Harrison a majority of 1,021. OHIO, Has of course given her Electoral vote to Harrison—majority about 20,000. CONNECTICUT, Has thrown her vote for Harrison.— Majority, 6,385 —all the towns heard from but five. MAINE. The returns from Maine, so far as re ceived, are favorable, to the Whigs. Their vote has largely increased since the Elec tion for Governor. Horrid Tragedy. We learn, (says the Southern Chronicle,) by letters from Edgefield Court House, that that village was, on Friday last, the thea tre of a bloody and disgraceful outrage, which resulted in the death of an amiable and promising young man named Byrd ! The facts which led to this dreadful result, we understand, are the following : It appears that a difficulty has existed for some time between Colonel Lewis Wig fall and Preston Brooks, Esq., of Edgefield, which had been partially healed by the mediation of mutual friends, but that an imprudent publication opened again the fountains of bitterness. During a tempo rary absence ofPreston Brooks, his father, Colonel Whitfield Brooks, answered the publication of Wigfall. The consequence was, a challenge from Wigfall, which was declined by Colonel Brooks, for cause as signed. Wigfall, on receiving his answer, sent a note to Colonel Brooks, stating, that he should post him as a scoundrel and cow ard at four o’clock that evening. Colonel Carrol and Thomas Bird volunteered to call on Wigfall and. request him to defer the posting till Preston Brooks came home, as he was the proper person to protect his father ; but by the time they arrived at the Court House, Wigfall had put up the pa per, and stood on the Court House steps to defend it, armed with a pair ofduelling pis tols. Bird intimating his intention of tear ing it down, when pistols were drawn by both him and Wigfall, and both fired with out effect. Bird drew a second pistol, and fired without effect again. Wigfall then returned his fire, and his ball entered the right shoulder of ‘Bird, taking a direction over the upper part of the chest, cutting his wind-pipe, and lodging in his left breast. He lingered until Sunday morning, in great agony, when his spirit took its flight.
