Mounting the steps of the hotel, he cried, “Here’s the hand that lifted Jenny Lind out of the coach. . Gentlemen, you can have the pleasure of kissing It for five dollars—chil dren half price.” Georgia Rail Road.—We are pleased to learn that the miscreants who attempted to throw the engine and cars of the upwnrd passenger train from the track on the night of the 29th ult,, by moving one of the iron rails near Madison, causing the accident no ticed in our paper of the 30th ult., have been caught and confined in jail in Madison.

The men nnd boys, without n known exception, met in the streets the same even ing and erected a liberty pole. That very night it was cut down Suspicion fastened upon one of tho principal and proudest men in the town, who was known to hold Tory sentiments. The indignant people re-assem bled, erected a new pole, seized upon the suspected man, made him confess his treason and his accomplice, anointed his forehead with tar, and crowned him with feathers, and then, having formed a double line, com pelled him to pass between the files and ask ili turn tho pardon of every man and boy in town. The humbler individual, who had been hired to fell the liberty polo, was then mounted bnre-bneked upon a raw-boned horse, and sq parnded through the vilage, 'stopping in front of every house to entreat forgiveness for his share in the offence.” The reciter of this, distinctly recollects when the Tory asked his pardon, being then a boy of nine years. Out Of.—A writer in the New Haven Chronicle says the words out of, are the worst in the language, when one is out of patience and out of money. He says his wife tells him she is out of sugnr one day; out of coffee the next; out of tea the next; out of flour the next ; nnd finally out of spirits. The words we think are very good words, and docidedly the best in the lan guage, when one is out of debt; out of trou ble, nnd out of Jail. If a man has a smokey house and .a scolding wife, out of doors is no bad place. The Cow Tree.—On the parched side of a rock in Venezuela grows u tree with dry and leathery foliage, its large woody roots scarcely penetrating into the. ground. For several months in the year the leavos aj moistened by a shower: its branches loo! ‘ if they were dead and withered; but ,w trunk is bored,'a bland ana nours:' flows from it. It is nt sunrise that [table fountain flows freely. At t; the blacks nnd nntives.nre seen com all parts, provided witli^Wylg to ,the milk which grows j~lo' s surface. Some empty- spot, while others can- One imagine* d who is, How wo nre led liy (he Nose. On a calm summer morning a peacock stood spreading his feathers in tho sun. Near him n lake lay slooping-in: motionless trans parency. He walked towards it with con scious pride, and bending himself over the brink, sometimes gazed at his gorgeous plumage in the mirror, and sometimes turned back his eyes, to oxamine the play of green nnd gold upon his back. The simplo inhab itants of a neighbouring farm-yard stood oil at a respectful distance, awe-struck with his grandeur. The hens cackled to each other; the geese huddled together, poked out their long necks, and hissed; and even chanticleer, although generally on capital terms with himself, rather lowered his crest, and lifted his yellow (eet with less of lordly majesty as he marched among his companions, who no longer p'aid him there accustomed attentibn. At this oxtorted acknowledgement of his superior splendour, heavens I how the pear- cock swelled! “Certainly,” said he, “I am without an equal. Hqw mean these poor wretched creatures appear by iny side. How mag nificently beautiful I am. What golden tinges chase each other across my feathers How superbly my tail reflects the light. It is full of eyes which absolutely rival the sun himself. When! look around, what is there to compare with me ?” A rose, which was blooming near, over- heard this arrogant soliloquy, and addressed him : “Pray, Mr. Peacock, do not be offended, but I think I can show you a bird, not only your equal, but so far your, superior, that before man would allow one of the race to be destroyed, he would behold you nnd all your vain flaunting relations exterminated.’’ “I always thought, madam Rose,” replied the peacock, “that you were a decent sort of person, and had one or two tolerable colours in you—that is, for a mere rose ; but I can not giye you credit for much wisdom. And so sure am I of being considered of more value than any which you can possibly bring, that I fearlessly challenge you and all the world to produce my rival.” “This afternoon,” said the rose, “and be fore the assembled creatures of the earth and air; they shall pronounce upon your respec tive merits.” “I will come nn hour before sunset,” re plied the peacock, spreading his superb tail and tossing his bead aflectediy. “I appear to more advantage, the greater the light; good morning, madam Rose. What a fool is this ridiculous red flower,” ho continued in a low er voice, as he strutted away, “and so con ceited, too. Bah! how I hate conceited people 1” The hour for trial is come. The setting sun filled the woods with golden light; lengthened shadows lay on the soft green meadows. The beo hummed lazily along the drooping flowers, ns if tiled of their day’s wanderings the crows went winging their way over the tree lops to their nests ; the fish hawk had made ids last plunge in the lake, nnd was bearing his prey toward the high dry tree—every thing told of the closing day. Tho peacock spread his tai^ nnd entered the arena where ho was to await tho expec ted rival. He found nil tho beasts, poultry, etc., of the neighbourhood assembled. Tho geesq enme in singlo tile, headocl by n jingo old fellow, a kind of philosopher, who led the procession with grave dignity. The bens brought their dear little chickens, with their wee bit voices; the duck waddled to their places, and quacked “how do you do r” to their neighbours, the geese. The horses, who had been let loose in the adjoining field, cantered up, tossing their he ids in nir, kicking out their heels, and neighing cheer fully to their friends and fellow-citizens. The ass shook his ears With much self-com placency, nnd trotted alter. An old black sheep sprang over a fence, and was immedi ately followed by about a hundred others, who leaped over in the same place. Tho cows walked out of the pond and took their stations, lashing themselves with their tails, and chewed the cud; no animal like your cow for gravity and patience. A great filthy hog, whd had been wallowing in the mire, came in grunting, and thrusting himself into company where he was not wanted: but he got a good seat, because cveybody feared to come in contact with him. The swallows skimmed down from their nests under the eaves of the barn, and seated themselves in a row on tho rail fence. The turkeys camo in lute, grumbling nnd gobbling. They thought tho whole concern rather ridiculous—they were as good as the peacock, any day “some people make such i fuss about no thing.” A beautiful robin came hopping along, and flew up into a branch of the cherry-tree, with a sweet and plaintive cry ; whilo a fierce little bantam rooster pushed his way in among the horses, squared ofl to a turkey seven times as largo as himsolf, and at length reached an excellent place, where he sat with the nir of one who thinks him self as good as most people. When thq company were seated, the rose, who bad called the meeting, m a brief and graceful address, explained the wagor which had been laid betw veil the peacock and her self. “My friend sairl the peacock, in a scream ing, discordant voice, which made the robin flutter to a more distant seat, “1 am nenrly overcome with diffidence at appearing thus ‘“‘“liilic. Nothing but duty and self-rc- mld have driven mo to such an ex hut ns the representative of a large jciety, I feo! bound to assert our mr attention. Look nt me, my line thosejealhers, the rainbow Itlo: higher, gnvo u gentle bray of npprobali id continued to listen will, Unpcrturnlilo gravity)*—“the rose has proffered to bring bo- fore you a bird more valuable than myself. I appeal to my person, and challenge com petition.” The peacock then walked around in a cir cle. “What a stately gait!” said tho goose. “And what a sweet voice said tho ass. “i shall now produce your rival, Master Peacock,” said the rose, in a sweet voice, nnd with something of a deepor shndo of crimson passing over hor soft face. She nodded her head, and a strange bird, who bad not before been at all observed among tho crowd, stepped forth, nnd stood in silence by the rose-bush. His plain appearance ex cited so|ne whispering—there was a good' deal'bf cackling and simpering among the old hens, at the idea of such a small, insig nificant-looking creature daring to present himself on such nn occasion. The most in fluential goose gave a downright hiss, where upon all the other geese stretched out their sngacious heads ana hissed also ; while the guinea-heu uttered a peevish, discontented cry. Nothing, however, could exceed the irrepressible mirth of the rooster, who gave a right hearty crow of derision, unless it wns the wise demeanour of ass, who first looked down contemptuously on tho little aspirant, then laughed aloud, mid concluded by nod- ding Liu hoad and lung ours to his neigh bours, and winking his left eyo with a know ing look, ns much os to say, “stnnd by, now nnd we shall have some fun ” After (be peacock had remained silent for a moment, swelling and strutting, and exhi biting himself to his admirers, like a militia colonel on parade, be asked the rose, with a sneer, if she intended to “ insult the nudi- once by such a miserable jest ?” The rose was going to reply, when the ass, who always puts himsolf forward on these occasions, and attempts to lead the rest of the meeting, rose and made a short address., “ My friends,” he said, “ I can no longor suppress my feelings of indignation at the in sult oflored to the excellent, tenderhearted and nminhlo peacock, by this brnzen-faeed rose. Lot me ask you, gentlemen, who and what is this rose ? What has she done ? What use is she of ? Whoover heard her voice in the wood, ns mine is heard, nnd the peacock’s, animating nature, and soothing ail that have ears to hoar, and hearts to feel ? The rose is a stupid and senseless flower, so conscious of her own insignificance, that she dares notshow herself in the pathway where we tread. Look at the blush of shame which even now rises to her cheeks—look nt hor feehloness, her uselessness, her idleness ; for my part, 1 always haled her, and preferred the noble sunflower, which lifts its yellow head in yonder field. Now, let me nsk the rose how she dure collect us (whose time is important) togotlier, for the purposo of judg ing between .tho merits of yon small, paltry brown bird, that ivc should never think of looking at twice, and this gay and splendid creature, which is the admiration of myself mid all other cognoscenti, indeed, of the known world.” “ I must remind the learned gentlemen,” said the rorona^n low hut touching tone, “ that tlu^^^Bhcr moans of gaining fame besides That tho dross Striking, nnd gaudy " thnt of the nlglitifigalo, 1 willin S tu Allow; but dress dues i,Ot make the man.— The nigluingule rests ilis hope of your ap probation upon higher'.qualitics. Nature has given him a most extraordinary power of touching the soul; and, I think, this must rank him higher in the scale of creation than the peacock.” “ Oh, ho !’’ said the ass, “ you mean his singing. I have bcon often disturbed by his voice in the night, although I never before had tho honor of seeing the vocalist. What!” he continued, “ this is tho fellow, is it, thnt keeps us uwnko ? Well, hark ye, my little chap,give us a touch of your quality; and be short, do you hear ? for our time is precious, ana important to the commonwealth.” The nightingale was about to commcnco, when tho peacock broke in : “ 1 also,” said he, “ have cultivated my voice, nnd aspire to some skill in melody” Right,” said the ass, “ and the nightin gale is nothing to you ” The little bumtam, who had perched upon the top of an old chestnut rail, came out with a sudden laugh, and slapped his sides with his wings, at this assertion; but the ass, re garding him with a grave, rebuking expres sion said : “ I would have you to know, sir, that if there is any thing on which I really pique myself, it is being a correct judge of music, In that I’ll yield to nobody. Rut hush ! that divine creature is going to sing.”. The peacock favored them with ft song, than which nothing could be more harsh, discordant, und altogether execrable. Very fine-—delicious !” said the ass, nod ding his head; “ now, let the nightingale heat .that if he.con,” ' • j An old lien, who had been scratching gra vel at a little distance, declared ‘.lint she “ never know wliat music was before.” Ail innocent little lamb, who loved the nightingale, cried “ hah !” hut the ass pricked up his ears and shouted, “ turn him out !’’ in sucli a stentorian voice, that the poor young tiling was frightened half to death. “ Order, order,” said the cow. Order being obtained, a gdsh of melody hurst from the throat of/the nightingale, which instantly hushed every other sound Sometimes it melted iutti plaintive sweet ness, und sometimes hurst forth like an ini- ulso of love ; hut tho pervading chnrnctor - tenAfirness and melancholy, so inoxpres- toucliing/lhat after it had sitynho hung over the o were waiting nn.d betoro ha iroUcA on’, shook his e wiso look, nnd observed : villi a “ It is really astonishing how the public allow themselves to be lednwny.” Gcihsuiuiuic. Lieut, Lynch of tho United States Ex ploring expedition to tho river Jourdan and the Dond Sen in 1849, visited tho garden of Gotlisemane about tho middle of May. He says:— “The clover upon thoground wns in bloom, nnd altogether, 'he garden, in ifs aspect and associations, wns hotter calculated than any place I know to sooth a troubled spirit. Eight venerable trees, isolated from thostnalier and less imposing ones which skirt (lie pass of the Mount of Olives, form a consecrated grove. High above, cn either hand, towers a lofty mountain, with a deop yawning chasm of Jolioslinphut between them. Crowning ono of them ns Jerusalem, n living city ; on the slope of the other is tho groat Jewish cemetry, a city of tho dead. Each tree in this grove, ennkored and gnarled and furrow ed by age, nnd yet beautiful and impressive in its decay, is n living monument of the nf- fccting scenes that have taken place beneath and around it. The olive perpetuates itself, and from the root of tho dying pnront stem, the young treo springs into omstonco. f These nre accounted one thousand years old.' Un der those of the preceding’growth, therefore, the Saviour was wont to rest; nnd one of tho present may. mark tho very spot whore he knelt and prayed and wept; No caviling doubt can find entrance hero. Tho geograph ical boundaries are loo distinct and clear for nn instant’s liositntion. Hero the Christian, forgetful of the present, and absorbed in the past can resign himsolf to snd yet soothing meditation. The few purple nnd crimson flowers, growing about tho roots of the treos, will give him nmplo food for contemplation ; for they toll of tho suffering and ensauguined death of the Redeemer.” The ; Partino of Life.—A correspondent eff the New York Evening Post says : “There are not many more beautiful lines in the English language, there are certainly none so beautiful in tho writings of tho au thor, ns thoso of Mrs. Bnrbnuld, which tho poet Rogers is fond of repeating to his friends, in his lino, deliberate manner, with just enough of treinulousnoss in that grave voice of his, to give his recitation the effect of deep “ Life 1 we’ve been loan toj-other, Through pleasant and ilirauith cloudy weather, ’Tialmrdto part when frii-mls ure deur, lVrlmps ’twill cost u einxlu tear, Then steal away, give little warning, Choose thine own time, Say nut gntul night, bui-ln amua happier clime. Hid ine good morning. “It makes the thought of Death cheerful to represent it thus, as life looking in upon you with glad greeting, amidst fresh airs nnd glorious light. The lines, I infer, were written by Mrs. Barbnuld in her late old age, and I do not wonder that the aged poet, who some years sinoe entered on the fifth score of his years should find them haunting his memory.” A Point of Anxious Enquiry, Not a littlo anxiety lias been manifested to know wlint is “tho (lag of Mississippi,” about which Governor Quitman tried bo hard to rant the other day. and which ho promis ed should never ho dishonored in Ilia hands. \Yo all know wlmt the flag of the Union is- “Wlio-e stars lmve lit the welkin dome, Ar.d all whose hues were born in Heuven.” We can fancy loo the Banner of Disunion, waving over a field wet with brothers bloodl- “lllnc!; as night, tierce as ten furies, Teriiblo as Hell,” emitting not a single ray of light, to cl;eer tho gloom ! But wliul is tho (lug of Mississippi? The Govertioi- talked of it as if it wero now with in his grasp, if so, let us have a descrip tion. But if It is something that is not yet it, being, modesty should dictate some slight delay oil tho part of the Governor. Por- hnps the pooplo might prefor that flag to ho carried by other hands. His own political friends, two years sinco, preferred IVm. O, Butler lobe a standard hearer for tho Uni ted States over John A. Quitman, arid they unquestionably acted wisely 1 Perhaps the people might do the same as regards the “flag of Mississippi.” But what is the flu; —Natchez Courier. lion Jas. Brooks tins been unanimously nominated lor re-election in the SixthCon- gressional District of New York. His dis trict is the largest in population in iho Un ited Status, nnd not a single vote of the no minating convention wasgiven against him. The prompt and decided stand which Mr Brooks look in Congress in support of the seties of measures for smiling the slavery questions is,well known to the couqlty, and the crnuluilic approval of his course which ho has now received from his constitution is as honorable to their intelligence as it is to the loyally of their Representatives, find as it must he gratifying to the friends of peace and the Union every where. Il is a pleasing evidence that the clamors of the Northern tanalies however noisy and yio- lent, do not express the sentiments of tin- great body ol the Northern penjilu.—Nut ^ n l. To the Ladies.—A curious fact is thus told in one of our exchange papers : “Take a string that will reach twice around ll-c neck of a young lady—let nor hold the ends in her teeth, and then if the noose will slip over hor head to Hie back of her neck, it is n certain indication that slio is mnrried, or wants to bo.” Try it, yuung’uns. Belgium.—The Belgians Inive liceu hralittg, recently, the nmiicersurj JuitUo liei'i'ien’a lt|ieac!i, We wore not at tlio Court house on Thurs day evening last, but learn from thoso who wcro.present, trial Judgo Berrien throw any quantity of wfl blanf-etsovcr the l-'ire Eaters. In the first part of his speech, he repeated some of his well known fallacies in regard to the admission ofCnlifornia. His remarks wore of course most rapturously applauded. When became to speak of the Texan Boun dary Bill nnd Eugitivo -Slave Bill, the enthusi asm somewhat subsided; hut when lie touch ed upon the remedies—and declared liimsctt opposed to disunion, secession, or non-intcr- coorse, the catastrophe seemed to be com plete, and the consternation of the fire-eaters^ boyond description. Judge Berrien told, them that disunion wns no remedyatall;- that it was 1/ie worst of all evils, lie said that aoeosaion wns synonymous with disunion,, and non-intercourse was unconstitutional. The only course left for the South then, to- f iursuc, was to foster and cherish her own ndustry, and to develope her own resources. 1 his could he done in various ways. Texas could ho levied upon Northern manufactures^ Northern importations, and the products of Northern industry in such a way, os tor virtually exclude them from Southern mar kets. This he thought might be adopted aa a romedy with success. 'Tlio speech os lor as we have been abla te ascertain its correct import, from Ilia con flicting statements of tiiose present, was calia und dispassionate, but. nuv Mich us to givo great satisfaction to any party. Indeed the orator distinctly stated that there were tliraa parties in tho State, and from what we aa learn, his great etlhrt was to vindicate hia own conduct dining the last session of Con gress, and to croct u platform for a Berrien party in Georgia. A wag, who listened with groat patience- to the speech, remarked that the Honorable Senator reminded him of an adroit equestrian performing upon three horses in the circua. lie was first upon one horse, then upon another, then apparently upon all three, and finally down among the tato dust! We hnvo no doubt the Judge will ultimately dia- cover that there is “more truth than poetry’ 1 in tho comparison. Wo nroglad to hear that he is no disunion- ist; nnd yet if he is really convinced »s he laboured to convince others, that the “South lm9 suffered wrongs; serious, grievioua wrongs,” we think that he arrives at “a lame and impotent conclusion” in regard to hia remedy—For ourselves, if we could believe that tho admission of Califoniu was a viola tion of the constitution, ns he argued it to be, we would join the “coffin parly” instanter. It is becuuso we do not behove these thing*, that we are ntiil rosolv.ed to stnnd by the old flag stall' from whose summit floats the “stars and stripes.”—Jour. If Mcs. Another Anecdote.—It gives us pleas ure to stale anothor anecdote about the President, for which we vouch, us we had it Irotn two gentlemen from the West, with whom tho President had just been h con versation yesterday morning. They ware applying to him lor the appointment of • gentleman as attorney for the United Staten in ono of the western States. After discus sing tho qualification of the cundidate, Mr. FilTmoro lomarkod that thcro was another thing which ha deemed■ indispensable. He said ho was determined to execute faith fully tho fugitive-slave law, and would ap point no man to oifico, who might be called upon to assist in tho administration of that law who would not zealously co-operate ie its qxceution. On another occasion, ive understand, from good authority, that the President de clared the law should ho executed at every hazard, even at the risk of blood. This is the spirit alone in which the Union can be preserved.— Wash nylon Union. Keep il before (ho People, Thnt theDisunionists, if possible will keep People in tlio dark as to what they intend to do in the coming election But let them, ('the people) he not deceived by them. Tho issue, if not in the election, will he in tho Convention, Union or Disunion. Ther* are no other alternatives. One of the two is certain to prevail. Keep it before the People, That it ti tho policy of tho fire eaters to waive the subject when asked for what policy or measure they go in for. They will not openly declare their principles before the election, but intend to deceve the sovereignly by holding ou % false pretense to them. THE SYNOD OF PITTSBURG*.
