We deem a suitable notice of bis life and death both
useful and proper. It will deter others from jumping from
the same heights that Sam did: and in these times ot po
litical excitement, why may not politicians derive a useful
moral from the same, and learn to jump with moderation?
They should be cautious of the cheerings and shootings
of the warm partizar.s, for verily, in politics, as in perpen
dicular heights, there are some jumps which are fata!.
BIOGRAPHY OF SAM PATCH.
Pawtucket is a famous place,
Where cotton cloth is made,
And hundreds think it no disgrace
To labor at the trade.
Among the spinners there was one,
Whose name was Samuel Patch;
He moped about and did his rtint—
Folks thought him no great scratch.
But still a maggot in bis head,
Told Sam he was a ninny,
To spend bis life in twirling thread,
fust like a spinning Jenny.
And if he would become renown’d,
And live in song or story,
’Twas tim» he should be looking round
For deeds of fame and glory.
“What shall I do?”quoth honest Sam,
“There is no war abretving;
“And duels are but dirty things,
“Scarce worth a body’s doing.
“And if I should be President,
“1 see I’m up a tree;
“For neither priests nor Congress-men
“Have nominated me.”
But still that maggot in his head
Told Sam he was a gump,
For if he could do nothing else,
Most surely he could jump!
“Ay, right,” quoth Sam, and out be went,
And on the bridge he stood,
And down he jumped full twenty feet,
And plung’d into the Hood. *
And when he safely swam to land,
He stood there like a stump,
And all the gaping crowd cried out,
“O what a glorious jump!”
New light now shone in Samuel’s eyes,
His heart went pit a pat,
“Go bring a ladder here,” ho cries;
“I’ll jump you more than that.”
The longest ladder in the town
Against tbe factory was rear’d,
And Sam chimb up, and then jump’d down,
And loud and long the gapers cheer’d.
Be.«i !es Uic maggot in bis head,
Sam’s ear now felt a flea:
“I’ll raise some greater breezes yet:
“What’s this dull town to me?”
And off he went on foot full trot,
His hopes ol fame his bosom fired,
At Paterson in Jersey state,
lie stopt awhile, for Sam was tired.
And there he mounted fur a jump,
And crowds came round to view it,
And all began to gape and stare,
And cry, “How dare you do it?”
But Sam ne’er heeded what they said,
His nerves warnt made to quiver,
And down be jump’d some fifty feet,
And plash’d into the l iver.
“Hoo-rah,’themnb cried out amain,
‘Hoo-rah,’ from every threat was pouring,
And echo eried liGo-rah again,
Like a housami lions roaring.
Sam’s fame now spread both far and w ide,
And brighter grew from day to day,
And wheresoe’er a crowd convened,
Patch w as the lion of the play.
From ship mast he would jump in sport,
Apd spring from highest factory walla;
Anu proclamation soon was made
That lie would leap Niagara Falls.
“What for?” inquired an honest Hodge;
“Why scare to death our wives and mothers?”
“To show’ that that some things can be done,”
Quoth Sam, “as well as others.”
Ten thousand people thronged the shores,
And stood there all agog,
While Sam approach’d these awful falls,
And leapt them like a frng.
And when they saw his neck was safe,
Apd he once more stood on his feet,
They set up such a deafening cheer,
Niagara’s roar was fairly beat.
Patch being but a scurvy name,
They solemnly did there enact,
That he hcnceforwaid should be called
“Squire Samuel CP Cdlaracl."
And here our hero should have stopt,
And husbanded hia brilliant fame;
But, ah, he took one leap too much,
And ’most all heroes do the same.
Napoleon’s last great battle prov’d
His dreadful overthrow,
And Sam’s last jump was a fearful one,
And in death it hid him low.
That at the fall of Gennesee,
He jumped down six score feet and five,
And in tbe waters deep he sunk,
And never rose again alive.
The crowds with fingers in their mouths,
Turn’d homewards one by one,
And nft with sheepish looks they said,
“Poor Sam’s last job is done.”

At the apartment of MacGrawler, Paul one
morning encountered Mr. Augustus Tomlin
son, a young man of great promise, who pur-
sued the peaceful occupation of making for a
lending news paper, ‘Horrid Murders,’ Enor
mous Melons,’ and ‘Remarkable Circumstan
ces.’ This gentleman having the advantage
of some years’ seniority over Paul, was slow
in unbending his dignity*, but observing at
last the eager and respectful attention with
which the stripling listened to a most veracious
detail of five men being inhumanly murdered
in Canterbury Cathedral by the Rev. Zede-
kiah Fooks Barnacle, he was touched by the
impression he had created, and snaking Paul
graciously by the hand, he told him, there
wus a deal of natural shrewdness in his coun*
ternanc: and that Mr. Augustus Tomlinson
did not doubt that he (Paul) might have lhe
honor to be murdered himself one of these
days. ‘You understand me! continued Mr
Augustus,—I mean murdered in effigy,—assas-
inatedin type,-while you yourself, uncoo-
-Clous of the circumstance, are quietly eojoy-
.ng IVhat you imagine to be jour existence.
We never kill common persons; to pnj the
truth, our chief spite is against th^ Cfaufeh;—
we destroy bishops by whole sale. Sninetimes
indeed we knock over a leading barrister or so;
k express the anguish of the junior counsel at a
loss so destructive to their intereds. But that
is only a stray hit, and the slain barrister often
lives to become Attorney General, renounces
whig principles, and prosecutes the very press
that destroyed him. Bishops are our proper
food, we send them to heaven on a sort of fly
ing griffin, of which the back is an appoplexy,
and the wings are puff*. The Bishop of-
whom we dispatched in this mannnr the other
day, being rather a facetious personage, wrote
to remonstrate with u» thereon; observing, that
though heaven was a very good translation for
a bishop, yet that, in such cases, he preferred
‘the original to ihe translation.’ As we mur-
j der Bishops, so is there another class of per
sons whom we only afflict with letiferous drs-
easDs. This latter tribe consists ofbis Majes- j
and his Majesty’s Ministers. Whenerer
we cannot abuse their measures, we always
fill foul on their health. Doe® the King nass
any popular law,—we immediately itsinuate
that hss constitution is on its last legs Doe?
(ho minister act like a man of sense—we in
stantly observe, with great regret, that his
complexion is remarkably pale. There is one
manifest advantage in diseasing the people ;
instead of absolutely destroying them Tbe
pnbUc may ftutiv contradict us in on* case,
but it never can in the other:—it is rasy to
prove that a man i3 alive* but utterly impossi
ble to prove that he is in health. What if
some opposing newspaper take up the cudgels
in his behalf, and assert that the victim of all
Pandora’s complaint?, whom*’we sem^tottering
to the grave, passes one half the day in knock*
ing up a distinguished company’ at a shooting
party, and the other in outdoing the samp ‘dis
tinguished company’ after dinner'? What if
the afflicted individual himself write us word
that he never was better in his life.—we have
only misteriouslv to shake our heads, and ob
serve, that to contradict is not to prove.—that
it is little likely that our authority should have
been mistaken, and (and we are verv fond of
an historical comparison)—beg our readers to
remember, that when Cardinal Richelieu was
dying, nothing enraged him so much as hint
ing that he was ill.
‘Why, sir. you would not believe it; but 1

of Sardinia in our yesterdays paper. Nothing
is too arduous for genius. Fag hard my bov\

The subjoined narative, relating to the death
of the Baron Do Kalb, was furnished from the
late Rev Mr. Hunter who was taken prisoner
by the British, and witnessed the iucidents
which he describes It has not before been
published, and may be read with some interest.
“The action was nearly at a close wheB 1
was taken prisoner. A few minutes after, Bar
on De Kalb without suit or aid, and without
manifesting any design or object, came post
ing along. He was soon descried by the sol
diers, who clapping thm’r hands on their shoul
ders (referring to his epauletts.) cried out ‘A
General! a rebel General!’ Immediately a man
on horse back (not Tarlton) met him and de
manded his sword The Baron very reluct
antly presented the handle towards him saying
— Qu’il vous etes un officier, Monsieur?’—
(You are an officer, sir?) His antagonist
with an oath, more peremptorily demanded his
surrender. Tbe Baron then with all possible
speed moved up the way The cry ‘A rebel
General,’ sounded before him. He fell from his
horse mortally wounded, his.body being perfor
ated with seven bullets. Immediately after
his fall he was divested of his hat and neck
cloth, coat and waistcoat; he was then raised
to his feet and placed against a pine po9t—his
shirt, drenched with blood, lay close to his
body. At every respiration, a copious flow of
blood was evident from almost every wound.-
He died that evning. His retpains were car
ried to Camden and there interred with the
honors of war. This tragedy was acted im
mediately under my eye' where to mistake could
occur; & never let it be said a^ain to the honor
of Tarlton, that he, by his p*rsonal prowess,
wounded and made prisoner ihe hrave, but
unfortunate De Kalb.—Western Chronicle.
Liberty Hall.—Old Hey wcode tells a story
of a woman that “had a husband, who custo-
mably came drunke home, aid shrinking from
his stoole or chaire, would often fall on the
floore, and there lie along; and still when she
called him to bed he would answer her, ‘Let
me alone, the tenement is mine owne and I
may lye where I list, so long as I pay rent for
the house.’ Some few nights after, coming
home in the like tune, and sitting asleepee in
a chaire before the chimney, his wife having
gone to bed, prescntlie the man falls into the
fire. The maid cries out to her misstresse,
Oh! mistress, my master is falne and lyes in
the fire, even in the midst of all the fire.’—
She lav still, and turning on the other side,
sayd, “so long as hee paye9 rent for the house
he may lye where lie Iisteth.”
An American drnnimer having strolled from
the camp, approached the English lines, and
before he was aware, was seized by the piquet,
and carried before the commander on suspi
cion of being a spy, disguised in a drummers
uniform- On being questioned he honestly
told the truth, and declared who and what he
was. This not gaining credit, ax drum was
sent for, and he was desired to beat a couple
of marches, which he readily pertormed and
thus removed the commander’s suspicion of
his assuming a fictitious character. “But my
lad,, said he, let me now hear yon beat a re
treat.” “A retreat!" replied the drummer^
“there is no such beat in our service.”
Pi.—The United States Gazette gives the
following pleasant account of a sorrowful acci
dent, by which pi—neither the Greek charac
ter, nor the well savoured article constructed
out of floor and pumpkins by our pilgrim fa
thers, but Printer’s pi.—was manufactured in
a summary manner
We were sent for yesterday morning to visit
the press room of our office, where a form of
the paper had fallen into pi. We gazed with
mournful visage at the ‘ w*reck. of matter” and
sighed to think how evanescent were the caus
es of felicitation. But a few moments before
and the form lay before us “a map of busy
life. There was Greece and the story of her
mutations, and in delightful juxta-position was
Turkey; to the left, Spain and Portugal were
remembered; our own country had its locations
and its events were recorded with a glowing
pen. The scenery was enriched with fleet?
of ships sailing in “columns” and here and
there a bouse dotted the landscape, the bard
was heard from Parnasus, and hymen lighted
hi? torch with glee. But how changed! What
a revolution—a convulsion. The packets and
steam boats lay bottom upwards on the “Al
leghany Portages,” ‘‘real estate in Chesnut-
street” had fallen indeed; and an “extract
from Dr. Channing’s sermon” was found in the
midst of one our correspondent’s “moral es
says” repoits of public sales” and recent ap
poiqtments” were huddled together; “Greece”
was mingled* with the concerns of the allied
powers;” “marriages” were all in confusion;
and an enumeration of the leading politicians
of the times, had fallen among articles “for
While we stood in the midst of the broken
form, like Marius among the ruins of Carthage
we were called from onr contemplation by the
philosophy of our devil, who, with his compos
ing stick in hand had set himself down to the
work of reform, quoting from Pope the admi
rably adanted line.
“All Jorms that perish, other forms supply.”
If the intellectual superiority of a couniry
is indicated by the number of its public Jour
nals, the United States of America i? the
most intellectual people in the world. For a
population of 11,000,000 and a half, it pro
vides 850 journals, being in proportion of 1
journal to every 13,600 individuals. England
with a population of 23,000,000 has only 483
journals, making the proportion as 1 to 48 *
500 But there are many gradations of the
scale between both. Saxony has 54 journals,
and her population is only 1,000,000 and a
half, being in proportion of 1 to 26,000. Den
mark, with a population of 2,000,000 and a
half, publishes 80 journals, being 1 to 31,000.
The Netherlands, containing 6,000.000, has
151 journals, being 1 to 41,000 Prussia,
whose population is 12,000,000 and a half, has
228 journals, or a proportion of 1 to 54.000 :
&. the German Confederation, a population of
12,000.000, issues 305 journals, being as 1
to 44,500 As we descend, we find Swe
den, France, Switzerl and. British Amer
ica, Hanovor. Bavaria, Portugal, Tuscany, Aus*

FROM THE MACDONoVGH JACKS0K1AN.
Some of our neighbors tell us that the re*

every Troup man in the State. It is true we
spoke of the Troup party generally. There
were no verbal exceptions in our remarks—
But we are willing now as we always have
been, to believe that there are those of that
party, to whom oUr late remarks are inapplica

admission is conceding enough. We Would

a little wonderful that, some well meaning
men can see violence only on one side—-only
in certain news papers! Is there no violence
in having began seven years ago to distribute
offi ces to men of a certain faith, excluding all
others? And in pursuing that course to this
day? It is true that among other wise dis-
dispensalions cfDivme Providence, there was
an interruption, a suspension of the deadly blast

Clark party, having a majority made use of it,

their more wise opponents, and. their convic

by tbe Georgia Journal to assemble in every
county to concert plans for the election of
Troupers cmly—to doom to perpetual privacy

pure his private character, or patriotic his pub
lic services, who happens to vole for another
individual instead of Governor Troup-Our op

who even yet have some feeling which ought
not to be trampled—natives of the same State

GENERAL JACKSON’S PRINCIPLES.
Among the charges now brought against General Jack-
son, it is said that he imposed upon ihe electors bj induc
ing a belief that he was in favor of Mr. Clay's system of
Internal Improvement. Gen. Jackson has approved the
appropriation for the Cumberland Road. We do not
know of any appropriation similar to that for tbe Mays-
vitle and Rockville Turnpike Companies that has, at any
previous time received the sanction of. Congress. The
question as to them is therefore new, and is to be tested
upon its awn merits. None of his opponents have re
viewed General Jackson’s argument upon that subject.
Until that be satisfactorily refuted all invective is out of or
der. Bat to show that he has been consistent, that his
views were fairly and fully before the public, we republish
his letter to Mr. Dickson, written in 18Q1, and republish
ed during the canvas in this and almost every republican
press in 1828. It is as .follows:
Knoxville, Sept. 1st. 1601.
Dear Sir:—Through life I have held it a sacred duty
I owed to my country and myself, never to give my suf
frage to a. candidate for a scat in the Congress of the U-
nited States, unless I was convinced that his political sen
timents wtre congenial with those he represented, and that
he would speak and do the will of his constituents; and
being now informed that you are a candidate for the honor
of representing, the citizens of the State of Tennessee in
the representative branch ol the Federal Legislature—be
lieving as I do, that any citizen'who does obtain the suf
frage of the freemen of Tennessee, must be a character,
the composition of which is virtue, talents, and the true
whig principles of seventy-six; in short, Sir,.that he must
be a Republican, and in politics, tike CCesar's wife, not
only chaste but unsuspected.
The first two component parts of this character I know
you to possess; the latter as to myself 1 have ever thought
you did.- But, Sir, the public mind has been lately led to
