COMMUNICATIONS addressed to the Publishers—Post
BY RH- S. S. ANDROS.
Here will I worship— hero where sky and sod
Unite their offspring whrrc sight and sound
Bring their glad tribute, and the smile of God
Bathes all in light around.
No hollow form is here the breathing flower
Exhales its perfume, and the summer gale
Comes, with sweet incense, from still forest-bower,
And solitary vale.
Unseen the wild bird chants her quiet lay;
The green leaves answer, and the hidden stream
Makes dream like music, while above its way
Bright wings in sunlight gleam.
No hollow form is here; but teachings deep,
And lessons, such as man may not impart,
And truths, untaught in human temples, sweep
Like rivers o’er the heart.
For hare God speaketh. In the summer wind
His voice is heard ; and in the calm blue sky,
And starry flower, ’mid whispering leaves enshrined,
Man meets him eye to eye.
Not, then, to temple reared by human art,
And decked by human pride, will i repair;
Mine be ihe shrine, where Nature’s mighty heart
Sends up eternal prayer.
LOVERS AND HUSBANDS.
A THOUGHT BT GARRICK.
Ye fair married dames, who so often deplore
That a lover once blest is a lover no more,
Attend to my counsel, nor blush to be taught
That prudence must cherish what beauty has caught.
Use the man whom you wed like your fav’rite guitar; j
Though there’s music in both, they’re both apt to jar.
How tuneful and soft from a delicate touch I
Not played on too roughly, nor handled too much.
The linnet and sparrow that feed from your hand
Grow fond by your kindness, and come at command
Exert with your husband the same happy skill,
For hearts, like your birds, may be tamed at your will.
Be gay and good-humored, complying any kind;
Turn the chief of your care from your face to your
’Tis there that the wife may her conquest improve,
And Hymen will rivet the tetters of love.
THE BACHELOR'S SOLILOQUY.
Yes, yes! I’ll lead a single life,
For married men are lost;
And the ‘dearer’ that a wife may be,
The more that wife will cost!
Match-making meddlers! ye may try
To wheedle me, ’tis true;
But though I’ll never match your choice,
I’ll be a match for you !
.REMEMBER THE POOR.
O yel who sunlt in beds of down,
Feel not a want but what yourselves create,
Think for a moment on his wretched fate,
Whom friends and fortune quite disown I
111-satisfied keen Nature’s clamorous call,
Stretched on bis straw, he lays himself to sleep,
While through the ragged roof and cbinky wall
Chill o’er his slumbers piles the dirty heap !
Deep is the lover’s voice,
When, like a muffled bell
As to the otqect of his choice,
His tale of love doth tell.
Deep is the black-bird’s song,
And deeper still the sparrow’s ditty;
But none of these —(ah Ido not say I’m wrong,)
Equal in depth the -and ahwttf the city.

From the New York IferftM.
Commercial Treaties—Mr. Webster’s Policy
--Conversion ot tlie “(llobe,” nail the “.N.
Y- Courier. ”
Nothing is more strongly indicative of
the importance of the great project for
uniting the United States and Great Brit
ain, on terms equitable and advantageous
to both, and for restoring the prosperity
of the country, than the keen and anima
ted discussions which it has excited,
amongst till men of all parties from one
end of the Union to the other. No other
subject of public interest has for years
excited such close and universal attention.
The ultries of both parties arc exceed
ingly alarmed. They cannot conceal
their fears. It would be strange, indeed,
if they did not discover considerable ap
prehension. This movement of Mr.
Webster will have one great and benefi
cial tendency. It will eventually sepa
rate entirely the bankrupt, spoil-hunting
politicians from the solvent and industri
ous members of the community. It will
effectually neutralize the evil influence
of the rabid and unprincipled traders in
the prosperity and best interests of the na
tion —the men who have been sacrificing
every thing in their pursuit of oflice and
Os course, then, the new policy will
meet with furious opposition from the
corrupt money-changers, whom it is about
to expel from the temple. The bankrupt
brokers and speculators, who have been
perpetually distracting the country with
their clamors about banks and the regu
lation of the currency, and the distribu
tion of the land revenues, will use every
effort to oppose the new measures, which
promise to restore peace and quiet to the
country’, and place the national prosper
ity on the sure basis of the just laws of
equitable trade, which are always the
laws of common sense. But into the
minds of the great mass of the commun
ity will gradually sink, a full conviction
of the wisdom and necessity of adopting
some such great, comprehensive course of
national policy, ns has been shadowed
forth by Mr. Webster. The people have
become heartily tired of witnessing the
mere hack politicians floundering from
one expedient to another, leaviug the af
fairs of the country, at every step, in a
still more precarious state than ever. It
has been rather too expensive an amuse
ment and he must have small powers ol
observation, indeed, who cannot perceive
that the people are unwilling to lie fooled
any longer by if.
The “Washington Globe” has made a
show of discussing Mr. Webster's policy,
in a series of elaborate articles. The
“Globe” has attacked the project of the
negotiation of a commercial treaty with
England, chiefly on the ground of inex
pediency. It does not condemn the pol
icy itself, in round set terms. Not at all.
But it acts a good deal like one of those
people who go about creating distrust
and jealousy among friends, not by open
and direct assertion or accusation, but by
skulkinginsinuation,and knowing shrugs
of the shoulder and shakes of the head.
And at the last it fairly lets the cat out of
the bag. It dislikes the new movement
because Daniel Webster is at its head !
Thus does the “Globe” reveal the secret
of its opposition
“ It is a great and noble object, worthy
of the brightest minds and purest hearts;
but it is not the offspring of Mr. Web
ster’s genius or principles. Free trade is
one of the great fundamental doctrines of
Democracy, so far as regards the policy of
protection ; and if ever the great triumph
of humanity and policy is consummated,
it will be, not by Mr. Webster and bis
friends, but by the arguments and exer
tions of the Democracy of the United
Slates. We, therefore, do not see why
that gentleman should now exhibit the
rare modesty of placing himself at the
head of the great impulse, and affect to
direct the current he has for so many
years opposed we will do him the jus
tice to say, with much ability. Why
should he become the Itero, and usurp
the honors of a victory, which, so far
from assisting to gain, he opposed with
all his might f And why, most emphat
ically, should he be the agent, or the
prompter of the agent, selected to accom
plish or defeat the great object contempla
ted ? We say defeat, with a precise and
definite meaning, and its it is not our cus
tom to deal out itmendoes or insinuations,
we shall proceed to explain ourselves
frankly. We are not attacking Mr. Web
ster, but discussing a sudject with which
he is seeking to become identified, by
placing himself at its head.”
We have hardly any comments to make
on this frank and amusing revelation. It
furnishes the most conclusive evidence
in the world of the soundness of Mr.
Webster’s views the sagacity which has
chosen the most favorable moment for
thei,r promulgation—and affords satis
factory foresight of future extended pop
ularity with tlie great masses of the JX3O
- The “Globe” impugns the motives
of Mr. Webster. He is an ambitious
man, it says. Well, we suppose no one
imagines Mr. Webster to be devoid of
that ambition which animates most pub
lic men. But what lias ambition or love
of power to do with tlie accuracy of his
views, and the prosperity of his policy ?
A great deal in the opinion of the “Globe”
and the hacks of tlie party nothing in
the opinion of the intelligent masses
whose interests are at stake.
But one of the most remarkable inci
dents in the discussion now going on, on
this great subject, is the sudden conver
sion of the ‘New York Courier.’ Light
lias at length been given to the blind, and
the “Courier.” now manfully and boldly
comes out in favor of Mr. Webster’s pol
icy. The most violent partizan press in
the interest of Mr. Clay lias thus broken
ground in favor of the mighty movement
which will ultimately send all the cor
rupt, bankrupt, unprincipled, office-seek
ing politicians, reeling to oblivion ! Look
out for more signs in the heavens. The
end has not yet come.
Extracts from a letter from the Editor of the Globe
written from the Hermitage , A/ay 14, 1943.
I reached this place yesterday, having
had a most pleasant voyage from Saiut
Louis to Nashville. The weather was
fine ; and the shores of the Cumberland,
in their wildness of verdure, and the joy
ousness of the wild birds, which enchant
ed ine with the woods when I was a
young hunter, made me happy in the
scene, which contrasted so beautifully
with the turbid strength of the Missis
sippi, its drowned bottoms, and naked
hills. I did not read a page on the Cum
berland, and scarcely did any thing else
on the Mississippi.
# * * # # #
Judge Catron and his kind lady were
obliging enough to bring me to the Her
mitage in their carriage. We found the
venerable patriot in much better health
than 1 expected. He was out on a little
excursion in his carriage, on our arrival;
and when he returned he <jnve a welcome
as affectiouate as he could have given a
long absent son. To-day we went to
church together, where the sacrament
was administered. He was the first to
lead the way to the table, to which he
was followed by a multitude of young
men and women. 1 did not see a single
gray head at the communion but his own
venerable, bleached, and lxnved one. * *
On our return from the church, I asked
him if the house was built before the
death of Mrs. Jackson? He replied that
the church was built by her, and was
her church; that the last time she ever
attended it was a sacramental occasion ;
that she was extremely solicitous that he
should unite himself with the society,
WA.k U. 1 HOMrSON PUBLISHERS. I NO. 5.
and that he was strongly inclined to do
so ; but that his attitude then before the
public would have subjected him to die
charge of acting hypocritically, which
he could not bear, as he detested hypoc
risy more than any other baseness. But
he added that he assured Mrs. Jackson,
when he had left the political scene, and
his motives were no longer liable to
misconstruction, he would comply with
her inclinations and his own, and join the
church. In the mean time, he would
serve his God without associating him
self with any religious society.
At the close of the sermon, the preach
er gave notice that there would be at 3
o’clock, a funeral sermon over a young
lady of twenty, whose corpse would be
brought to the church at that hour. He
invited the young particularly to attend.
The general told me, on our way to the
Hermitage,that he was too much exhaust
ed to attend tlie funeral service at the
church. When he had got out of the
carriage, he told the driver that lie must
have the carriage at the door in half an
hour. He told me he had, upon reflec
tion resolved to go to the house of the
mother whose daughter had died, and ac
company the remains to the church.—
He said the mother was a widow, who
had sustained a great calamity in the loss
of an excellent husband; that sbe had
been badly treated by those to whom she
had a right to look for kindness in her
distress ; and that attention to her, under
her present affliction, was a duty ho
would attempt to perform, however fee
ble his effort might be. As soon as he
had made a slight repast, taking one of
the ladies of his family with him, he set
out. and is now out in the performance
of this sad office, although from weak
ness and shortness of breath, he is not
able to walk a hundred yards without
requring a sent.
Every thing at the Hermitage bears
the impress of the general’s character —
all is on a large scale, and of a useful
and magnanimous caste. The tract con
sists of 1200 most exuberant acres, near
ly one half in fine cultivation, and fenced
with a strong, old fashioned fence, a por
tion of it with cedar rails. The house
is a noble country mansion—on two
sides the massive columns covering the
fronts, the other two being adorned with
wings, containing the dining-room, kit
chen, nursery, Ac. The centre has two
rooms on each side of a very large hall,
in which ascends a broad winding stair
case. The parlors are twenty-one feet
square each, and thrown into a parallel
ogram by two folding doors. The bed
rooms above are of the same size with
the parlors. The grounds immediately
around the house are shaded by locusts,
catalpas, sugar trees, Ac., interspersed
with cedars and shrubbery, and at this
moment are as fragrant with flowers as
the groves of the orange or the coffee
plantations of Cuba. On one side of
the lawn leading to the house is the gar
den which embosoms the monument
which covers the grave of Mrs. Jackson,
and that prepared for himself—a dome
raised on marble pillars, the foundation
of which is ascended by a circle of steps,
which make the elevation. On the oth
er side of the lawn is the orchard ; and
in front is a large woodland, (whose
extent cannot be seen) for the most part
of the tall tulip poplars, and left almost
in a state of native wildness. In the
rear, on a smooth velvet pasture, rolls
out a spring, or rather a flood of lucid
cool waters, which give a peculiar dark
ness to the green of the foliage by which
the fountain and stream are overshadow
Every thing at the Hermitage looks
perennial—perpetual; and the old man,
from the very marks of age which glori
fy his person, appears immortal. Noth
ing here bears the stamp of ostentation
and fastidious taste. There is an easy
elegance which impresses the feeling that
nature had done every thing, and art no
thing; and that all the comforts and all
the beauties that abound were scattered
by the profuse hand of the same benev
olent Power which created paradise a
wilderness of spontaneous bounty and
beauty. The general complains himself
that he has not cultivated a taste for ru
ral elegance. Every thing about him
shows that he lias not studied the art of
landscape gardening; but his farming is
like his fighting—for, although not done
by rule it turns out well.
Persons, worn and hackneyed in the
ways of men, whose imaginations are
grown callous, and have lost all those
delicate sentiments which are natural to
minds that are innocent and undepraved,
ridicule every thing as romantic that
comes in competition with their present
interest; and treat those persons as vis
ionaries, who dare stand up, in a corrupt
age, for what has not the immediate re
ward joined to it.
The time was when industry was fash
ionable, and none were ashamed to prac
tice it. But they have changed—fashion
rules the world, and labor has gone out
of fashion with those who can live with
out it; and until a reform is had, we may
bid farewell to many a comfort we might
1 otherwise enjoy.
