congregated in oq^place, it would seem to be the common rendezvous of the whole neighborhood. But no position, however secluded wr difficult of access, can secure them from the attack of the artful and vigilant hunter, who, when they are all quietly perched for the night, takes a stand previously chosen by daylight; and, when the rising moon enables him to take sure aim, shoots them down at lei- public or private worship, whose taste is grateful, and ever will be so, till Nature herself shall change—no tint of words can spot thy snowy mantle, or chymic power turn thy sceptre into iron—with thee to smile upon him as he eats his crust, the swain is happier than the monarch, from whose court thou art exiled.—Gracious Heaven! cried I, kneeling down upon the last step but one in my ascent—grant tbe health, thou great Bestower of it, aud give me but this fair goddess as my com panion—and shower down thy mitres, as it seems good unto tby divine providence, upon those heads which are aching for VOL. 2.

Extract from a notice of Bonaparte’s Ornithology, conlaiti£( : in the 54th number of the isortk A- mcrican Review. The author dwells nt much lemrtIi on tVd inscription of (he Wild Turkey, wliich ; s accompanied with n beautiful drawing. He asserts manfully the original claim of America to this bird. The first certain account of it, he says, was written in 1525, bv Oviedo, in his History of the West liidies. It was sent from Mexico to Spain, j In the early part of the sixteenth century, ' and thence to England about 1 lie year 1524,—By degrees it spiead over Europe, and within a century was introduced in Asia, Africa, and the European -olonics. The origin of the English name, Turkey, as applied to this bird, is a little singular, j It was first brought to England at a time ! when it was customary to denote articles j cf luxury from foreign countries by this appellation, and as the bird was a delica cy of novel and rare occurrence, it took the same name. This error was perpelu- ! uted from the circumstance of its being i supposed to have come,through Spain, from Asia or Africa. Some naturalists repre sented it as having been known to the ancients, hut thev confounded it with the Guinea Fowl. The Turkey is in fact in digenous in America, and was a stranger to 1 he old world till after the discoveries of Columbus. Mr. Bpnaparte has given a list of twenty seven names, by which it has been called among different tribes of Indians. From the author’s full discrip- tion of this bird, we shall select two or three paragraphs, in which arc exhibited some of its habits. When about t r > cross a river, they select the highest eminences, that their flight may he the more certain ; and here they some times remain fur a day or more, as ii fur. the purpose ofconsultation, or In be duly prepared for so hazardous a voyage. Du ring this time the males gobble obstreper ously, and strut with extraordinary impor tance, as if they would animate their corn ea artful are a stand and, wli to take sure aim, shoots them sure, and, by carefully singling out those oh the low branches first, he may secure nearly the whole flock, neither the pre sence of the hunter, nor the report of his gun intimidating the turkeys, although the appearance of a single owl would bo suf ficient to alarm the whole troop; the drop ping of their companions from their sides excites nothing but a buzzing uoisem^iich seems more expressive of suprisdphan fright. This fancied secuiitv, or hecd- lessness of danger, while at roost, is cha racteristic of all the gallinaceous birds of North America.”—pp. 82—91. upon .them! The bird in his cage pursued me into my room ; I sat down close to my table, and leaning, my' head upon my hand, I be gan to figure to myself the miseries of confinement: I was in a right frame for it, and so I gave full scope to my imagina tion. I was going to begin with the millions of mv fellow-creatures born In connexion with these characteristics i to no inheritance but slavery ; but finding of the turkey, and the description of the i however affecting the picture was, that I bald eagle above quoted, it may he no could not bring it near me, and that the it!*pro;>cr Franklin’ ('unions, and ins ibo tl»»n» wltii iIn• hihhh.; ■- e ol- hardihood; “>« fem:.lc*s am jegree ol hardihood ; i»« “ 11(i | young also assume much of ’he pompous j air of the males, ihe former spread.ug tails, and moving silently around. At j length the assembled multitude mount the tops of the highest trees, whence, at., s.g- ssal note from a leader, the whole toge'L- cr wing their way towards the opposite, shore. All the old and fat ones cross with- j out difficult, even whe^j the river exceeds j a mile in width: but tfin young, meagre, 1 and weak, frequently fall short ot the de sired landing, and are forced to swim lor their lives. This they do dexterously enough, spreading their tails tor a suppoi t, closing their wings to the body, stretching their neck forwards, and striking oat quick ly and forcibly with their legs. If i” thus endeavoring to gain the land, they ap proach an elevated or inaccessible bank, their exertions are remitted, they resign themselves to the stream for a short lime, in order to gain strength aud tlien with one violent effort escape from the water. But in this attempt all arc not successful; some of the weaker, as they cannot rise sufficiently high in the air to clear the bank, fall again and again into the watqr, and thus miserably perish. Immediately after these birds hav • succeeded in crossing a river, they fnr some time ramble about without any apparent unanimity of pur pose, and a great many arc destroyed by the hunters, although they.are then least valuable.* ‘These birds are guardians of each other, and the first who sees a hawk or eagle gives a note of alarm, on which all within hearing lie close to the ground.—■ As they usually roost in flocks, perched on the naked branches of trees, they are easily discovered by the largest owls, and when attacked by th<*sO prowling birds, often escape by a somewhat remarkable manoeuvre. The owl sails around illc spot to select his prey ; but uotwithstand- ig the almosi inaudible action of his pm- 5ns, the quick ear of one of the slumber- | rs perceives the danger, which is imrne- j [iateiv announced to the whole party by a iftucfc; thus alarmed, they rise on their |gs, and watch the motions ol the owl, idle, darting like, an arrow, would iuevi- ibly secure the:, individual at which lie limed, did not the latter suddenly drop ns head, squat, and spread his tail over lis back? the owl they glances over with- rnt inflicting any injury, at the very in fant that the turkey suffers himself to fall ieadlong towards the earth, where he is eeure from his dreaded enemy. ‘Wild .Torkies are very tenacious ot heir feeding grounds, as well as of the rees on which they have ouce roosted.— ’locks have been known tb resort to oue |K)t for a succession.of years, and lo re am after a distant emigration in search f food. Their roosting place is mostly n a point of land jutting into a river, diere there are large trees. When they iave collected at the signal of*a repeated obbling, they silently proceed towards heir, nocturnal abodes, and perch near Whether ; from tljc numbers sometimes place here to introduce Dr. humorous remarks, as contain ed in one of his letters, concerning the bird, wliich was chosen for the emblem of our nation. ‘“Others object to the Bald Eagle,” says he, “as looking too much like'a Dindm, or Turkey. For my part, I wish the Bald Eagle had not been chosen as the representative of our country ; he is a bird of a bad moral character ; lie docs not get his living honestly ; you may have seen him perched on some dead tree, where, too lazy to lisli for himself, he watches the labor of the fishing hawk; and and when that diligent bird has at length taken a fish, and is bearing it to its nest for the support of his mate and young ones, the bald eagle- pursues him, and takes it from him. With all this injus tice lie is never in good case; but like those among men, who live by sharping and robbing, lie is generally poor, and of ten very lousy. Besides, lie is a rank coward ; the little kingbird, not bigger than a sparrow, attacks him boldly, and drives him out of’the district. He is, therefore, by no means a proper emblem for the brave and honest Cincinnati of America, who have driven all the king birds from our country ; though exactly fir for that order of Knights, which the French call. Chevaliers d'Industrie. I am on this account not displeased that the figure is not known as a bald eagle, bin looks- more like a turkey. For in truth the turkey is, in comparison, a much more respectable bird, aud withal a true origin- fdnrirlTfTaTfcountries, bin llTe turkey was peculiar to ours. He is besides (though a little vain and silly ’tis true, but not the the worse emblem for that) a bird of enuif- age, and would not hesitate to attack a grenadier of the British guards, who should presume to invade his farm-yard with a red coat on.’”—p. 95. THE STARLING. -Beslirew the sombre pencil! said I, vauntingly—for 1 eijvy not it’s powers, which paints the evils of life with so hard and deadly a colouring. The mind sits terrified at the objects she has herself mag nified and blackened: reduce them to their proper size and hue, she overlooks them.—’Tis true, said I, correcting the proposition—the Castile is not an evil to be despised—but strip it of it’s towers— fill up the fosse—unbarracade the doors —call it simply a confinement, and sup pose his some tyrant of a distemper—and not of a man—which holds you in it—the evil vanishes, and you hear the other half without complaint. 1 was interrupt ed in the hey-day of this soliloquy, with a voice which I took to be that of a child, which complained, “ it could not get oni.” —I looked up and down tlie passage, and seeing neither man, woman, or child, I went out without further attention. In my return back through the passage, I heard the same w'-rds repeated twice over.; and looking up, I saw it was a Starling hung in a little cage.—“ I can’t get out— I can’t get out,” said the Starling. I stood looking at the bird ; and to every person who came through the passage, it ran fluttering to the side which they ap proached with the same lamentation (fit’s captivity—“I can’t get out,” said the Starling,—God help thee! said I, but I will let thee out, cost wlliit it will; so I turned about the cage to get to the door : it was twisted and double twisted so fast with wire, there was no getting it open without pulling the cage t” pieces—I took both hands to it. The bird flety to the place where I was attempting his deliverance, and thrusting his head through the trellis, pressed his breast against it, as if impatient.—I fear poor creature ! said I, I cannot set thee at liberty.—“ No,” said the Starling--“ I can’t get out-I can’t get out,” said the Starling. I vow I never had my affections more tenderly awakeued ; nor do I remember an inci dent in my life, where the dissipated spir its, to which my leason bad been a bub ble, were so suddenly called home. Me chanical as the notes were, yet so true in tune to nature were they chanted, that in one moment they overthrew all iny sys tematic reasonings on the Bastile; and I heavily walked up sta'irs, unsaying every word I had said in going down them. Disguise tby-self as thou wilt, still, slave ry l said I—still thou art a bitter draught' and though thousands in all ages have been made to drink of thee, thou art not less bitter on that amount. ’Tis thou multitude of sad groupes in it did but dis tract me— —I took a single cap tive, and having first shut him up in his dungeon, 1 then looked through tlie iwi* light'of his grated door to lake his pic ture. J beheld his body half was ted away with long expectation and con finement, and fell what kind,of sickness of the heart it was which arises from hope deferred. On looking nearer, I saw him pale and feverish : in thirty years the wes tern breeze had not once fanned his blood —lie had seen no snn, no moon, in all that time—-nor had the voice of friend or kinsman breathed through his lattice—his children— —But here my heart began to bleed, and I was forced to go on with another pfirt of the port! ait. He was sitting upon the ground upon a little straw, in the farthest corner of his dun geon, winch was alternately his chair and bed ; a little calendar of small sticks were laid at the head, notched all over with the dismal days and nights he had passed there—he had one of these little sticks in his hand, and with a rusty nail ho was etching another day of misery toadd to the heap. As I darkened the little light he had, he lifted up a hopeless bye towards the door, then cast it down—-shook his head, and went on with his work of afflic tion, I heard his chains upon h’s legs, as he turned his body to lay Ins little stick upon the bundle. * He gave a deep sigh.- I saw the iron outer into his soul. I burst into tears—rI could not sustain the picture'ofconfinement which my imagina tion had drawn.
