sofilv silent as falls the snow-flake, seem

across the vision, like the tliouglit of a

i the sight of their joyous felicity brought no

i cold upon the heart—it seemed but bittei

JOSEPHINE AND MARIA LOUISA.
“ As a domestic occurrence, . nothing
could more contribute to Buonaparte’s
Happiness than his union with Maria Lou
isa. He was wont to compare her widi
Josephine, by giving the latter all the ad
vantages of art and grace ; the former the
charms of simple modesty and innocence.
His former Empress used every art to sup
port or enhance her personal charms: but
with so much prudence and mystery, that
the secret cares of her toilette could ne
ver be traced her successor trusted for the
power of pleasing to youtli and nature.—
Josephine mismanaged her revenue, and
incurred debt without scruple. Maria Lou
isa lived within her income, or if she desi
red any indulgence beyond it, which was
rarely the case, she asked it as a favor of
Napoleon. Josephine, accustomed to po
litical intrigues, loved to manage, to influ
ence, and to guide ’her husband ; Maria
Louisa desired only to please and to obey
him. Both were excellent women, of great
sweetness of tempe v , and fondly attached
to Napoleon. In the difference between
these distinguished persons, we can easily
discriminate the leading features of the
Parisian, and of the simple German beau
ty. but it is certainly singular that the arti
ficial character should have belonged to
the daughter of the West India Planter :
that marked by nature aid simplicity, to
a Princess of the proudest court in Europe.
Buonaparte, whose domestic conduct was
generally praise worthy, behaved with the
utmost kindness to this princely bride.—
He observed, however, the strictest eti
quette, and required it from the Empress.
If it happened, for example, as was often
the case, that lie was prevented from at
tending at the hour when dinner was pla
ced on the table, he was displeased if, in
interim of iiisabssnce which he often pro
longed, she cither took a book, or had re
course to any female occupation—if, in
short he did- not find her in the attitude of
waiting for the signal to taka her place at
The. Acropolis of Athens is a hill 250
feet high, situated near the centre of the
ancient city. It was strongly fortified
and magnificently ornamented with tem
ples, the chief of which was the splendid
temple of Minerva, the glory of Grecian
art. The Persians under Xerxes took
the citadel, put the garrison to the sword,
and set fire to the fortress, and the temple
of Minerva, The temple was rebuilt by
Pericles with great additional splendor.
Within was the statue of Minerva by Phi
dias, the masterpiece of the art ofstatuary.
It was of ivory, 39 feet in height, and
covered with pure gold to the value of
$530, 000. In the year 1687, the Vene
tians attempted to make themselves mas
ters of Athens; in the seige,the T urks hav
ing converted the temple of Minerva in
to a powder magazine, a bomb fell into
it, and blew up the whole roof of that fa
mous edifice. The Turks afterwards
converted the inside into a mosque' This
edifice mutilated as it is, retains still an air
of inexpressible grandeur, and excites the
admiration of every beholder. “For these
forty years,” said the French Consul to
Pouqueville, “ do I behold this matchless
structure and every day do I discover
new beauties iu it.” The Turks fortified
the Acropolis and built a large irregular
wall around it. In the year 1S21, soon
after the commencement of the revolution
in Greece, this fortress was unsuccessfully
besciged by the Greeks. The Turks who
had with them about 5C of the prin
cipal Greeks,daily cut off the heads of sev
eral, and rolled them down the wall of
the citadel,:—The next year it surrender

T HIS Medicine lias acquired a very extend
ed and established celebrity both in Hos
pital and Priv ate practice, which its efficacy alone
has supported for these seven years past. ■ .
As a spring or fall purifier it has given new-
constitutions to thousands, it is by its operation
on the Blood that such surprising cures have been
performed in numerous diseases.
The effect of this medicine is such as not to in
terrupt either business or pleasure, and requires
only the common restraint of moderation in diet.
It is conveyed by the circulating fluids, and cor
rects their tendencies to all those diseases which
originate in vitiated blood, diseased liver, or de
praved appetite. It is a safe medicine, and re
moves all those evils which an unsuccessful use
of mercury so often occasions. No one, how
ever is advised to take it without first fully con

Liverpool, (eng.) Sept. 1823.
The Vegetable Syrup, called Swaim’s Pana
cea, prepared by* Mr. Swaim, of Philadelphia,
has’recently been introduced here by Dr. Price,
from the United States of America, where it is
now extensively used in the treatment of a varie
ty of Chronic Diseases.
Of the efficacy of this preparation Dr-Price
has had abundant and most satisfactory evidence,
during a course of experiments made under his
detection, whilst Surgeon of the Pennsylvania
Hospital; and sinde his arrival in England, he
has had the good fortune of witnessing many ad
ditional instances of its successful administration.
The diseases in which this Medicine has been
paiticularly useful, are those arising from con
stitutional causes—as in the various forms of
Scrofula, whether affecting the bones, joints, or
soft parts; and in cases, where a disposition to
this disease is manifested by debility only, it
operates as a preventive to the local disease by
its beneficial effects on tbe constitution. It is
equally efficacious in mercurial disease, and in
the secondary forms of Sypilis, and has lately
been gi-'en with marked success in chrenic dis
eases of the Liver, which had resisted the careful
exhibition of mercury. It has, likewise, very re
cently been administered with decided advant
age by one of the most distinguished Surgeons in
London, in a case which had entirely destroyed
the right eye of the patient, and a great portion
of the side of the face. WM. PRICE, M. D.

HE want of a work to which our planter
_ C ould refer for information, relative to the

has long been felt, and has long been submitted
to as a necessary evil for which no remedy was
at hand. With a sufficiency of talents and of en
terprise, to conduct experiments to draw infer
ences and,to detail them, yet have we presented
to the world, the spectacle of a high minded and
enterprising agricultural community, destitute of
original agricultural works, and depending sole
ly on original communications, or Foreign publi
cations for all our know ledge on these subjects.-
Whilst others have carefully collected and recor
ded the experience of their practical Farmers,
we have permitted the hard earned knowledge
of our farmers topeiish with them. Whilst others
have been straining every nerve in ie cause, we
have been mere lookers on, wh 1st they have
advanced rapidly, we have been stationary, or
at best have progressed but slowly. From wha:
cause has arisen the vast superiority of the North

the latter are brought immediately iuto notice by
their periodical publications, those of‘the former
are known but to few for want of a proper vehi-

their improvements have been more rapid than
i our's. and that we are at this day deficient in this
branch of know ledge. Such being the case, doe?
