The priest gazed wildly for a moment and then rushing into the chapel, in the anguish ofiiis soul, threw h'mseif upon the floor before the altar. Others watched the movements of the child, and when she reached the braves, a shout was heard from that wild baud that shook the chapel walls. A mowent after all their arms and torches were thrown down, and the chief advancing, took her by the hand, and led her back, attended by his braves. The priest had risen from the floor, and as he saw the child returning, raised his voice in gratitude to heaven.

There is a great deal said recently about “ ab stractions.” The word is flippantly used by hun dreds, who understand its meaning just about as well as the do the hieroglyphics on the ruiped temples of Coppu and Palenque. It has become the ruling word among the politicians who go for expediency without regard to principles. When they meet one who refuses to join them in promoting: measures From iho Richmond Enquirer. THE HUMBUG COMPROMISE! The candid portion of the Whig press confesses, that Mr. Clay’s compromise is all a humbug. We have several proofs of this, before us—which we will submit to our readers, in confirmation of the views we have hitherto expressed. And first we call into court, the Whig Editor of the Boston Courier. He is upon the stand. Hear him! “ J he reinarkes from the New York Commercial Advertiser of Saturday, embrace ja proposition, on which, in substance, we made a remark or two on Saturday, and against which weagain feel bound to pro test. It is the pretence that the amendment which has been introduced into the Bank Bill, respecting the “branching power,” is a “COMPROMISE.” W r hat do party men, and partizan editors mean by thus attempt ing to impose upon the understanding of the people ? Do they imagine that all are as completely stultified in devotion to party, or as firmly chained to the car of a political leader, as members of Congress, who crouched and drivel in the presence of their leaders? who change their votes, day after day, as they are hidden, or skulked away into some hidden passage or alcove of the capitol, to escape the responsibility of a vote upon an important question? (Mr. Henderson will in all probability deprive the country of the op portunity of knowing w hether Mr. Tyler would reject the Senate’s hill or net. If the compromise is adopt ed, and it receive his signature in that shape, I cannot but think it would have done so in the other.—But if the President would sign the one and veto the other, Correspondence of the Courier. Washington, Angust 9. 1 lie w hole city is in a state of doubt and anxiety, in respect to the fate of the Bank bill. The Whigs have not entirely lost their confidence in the opinion uniformly expressed by them, that would it is almost a pity that it should be denied the chancel sign the bill. Some prominent members of the of magnifying to the eyes of the people the difference between tweedledum and tweedledee to so momentous a consequence, as to form the basis of a solemn inter diction upon the legislation of the country. W hat possible objection in A constitutional point of view can be urged against the use of a power, when the power itself is acknowledged, cannot be divined by me. In the present instance, the assertion of the power without its use, is to render the bill obnoxious to all the con stitutional objections urged against the power, with out rendering it as perfect and efficient as the exercise of that pow er would do. It is in effect sacrificing the most important and beneficial feature of a National Bank, to an absurdity in logic, and a practical ineffi ciency.” It is indeed tweedledum and tweedledee. A “Vir ginia Metaphysician” abjures and disclaims such hair breadth distinctions. It is the part of a Kentucky Metaphysician to split hairs between the North and of Miss.! come lo'the bar, and hold up your hand, and I Northwest side—and by such petty tricks to attempt say “guilty .or not guilty?”) We have called the I to “ catch lll,e conscience” of;a “Virginia ahstraction- ‘ameudineiit” a “pretended compromise," and if it be tst.” The lasso, however, may he thrown iu vain, any thing more, we repeat the expression of our hope I T y' er must see the triek which is playing off upon that those who voted for it, (we mean those whose con- I ,l,m ’ a " d l,e must scorn although it may be true, stitutional scruples in regard to the branching power of the the distine atre nev Cabinet, were of that opinion, as late as Friday, as 1 know; and even on Saturday, some distinguished functionaries here, scouted the idea of his vetoing it. I confess I don’t know what to think of these asser tions, for I have supposed that the President would veto the bill, I still think that he will, unless he should yield his judgment and inclination to the pressing cir cumstances of the case. One thing is certain, that he Ins not yet signed the hill. If he was perfectly free from scruples on the subject, one would suppose that he would have signed the hill at once, well knowing, as lie does, the anxiety of the public. Obi Senator DlXON carried the bib to him,'and proposed to him, drily, to sign it, while lie waited. .The President re plied that the hill was rather long, and he must look over it, and he would be sorry to detain Mr. Dixoo till lie signed it. Should he sign it, I think he will certainly do it to-day, and quiet the public apprehensions. So, if vve do not receive a message announcing that he lias approved and signed it, to-day, we may expect the veto message towards the end of the week.

Careless ol tiie fame or honor which the world can give, lie was content to bury in the solitude of an uu- broken wilderness his name and virtues, unknown and unregarded by the vast majority of men. His Jite was devoted solely to country-men with whom lie dwelt; it was his aim to Christianize and thus reclaim the native tribes around. He made himself familiar with the Indian language, visited the red man iu his cabin, and conveyed to him the principles of what he deemed a sure and saving faith. At his bidding chapels were erected iu the midst of the native villages; and while he ministered before the altar, the unlettered children of the wilderness assembled round him, as the ancient shepherds of Thessaly tire said have gath ered about Apollo, when banished from the skies. Among the people of liis charge was a young or phan girl, whose parents died soon after their arrival in the land of their adoption. This young orphan was the object of his special care. He took upon himself alone the trust of her support and education. Aor were the gushing sympathies of his warm heart misplaced. Gratitude to iter protector, deep and ear nest gratitude, became with her the all-absorbing mo tive of existence. When he was near, she watched his countenance to learn his wishes and anticipate his wants. When he was absent, all the burden of her anxious heart was hut to do his w ill, and win a kind, approving smile on his return. Her prompt attention to the lessons he assigned her, and her rapid progress through the various grades of learning, of ten drew from him expressions of admiring joy, till his attachment to the true and docile child ex ceeded, if it could be, even a parent’s love. Eittle did he think so soon to have the strength of his af fection tried. An Indian and a Frenchman had been out in com pany to hunt, and when the chase was over, some dis pute arose about the game. Both became excited, and the Frenchman, in an evil moment, yielded to the impulse of his anger, shot the Indian through the heart. Well knowing that the natives would demand t"r this rash act the forfeit of his life, the offender has tily made his escape. The melancholy tidings soon were heralded abroad, and all Cahokia at once assum ed the sadness of despair.—Man gazed with anxious and misgiving eye upon his fellow men—the ma tron clasped the uncoricions infant to her heart, in breathless terror, and even the fresh, ruddy cheek of thoughtless youth grew pale. All knew the certainty ol savage vengeance, hut could rely upon no resource to avert it. On first receiving news of the affray, the pious Father had returned, bowed himself in prayer eforc the altar of his God. Beside him knelt the tender object of his love and care, and fervently iin- p ured the arm ol heaven to protect the hamlet for •is.sake. While thus engaged, a crowd broke in on t ieir devotions, and with shrieks exclaimed—“They C °m! t!,c y tome —go, meet them, holy Father, go!” j Se veml brokers and business men from Phhiladel- From the Boston Morning Post 0 f An?. 2. !

Until my mind is illuminated upon this abstruse point of metaphysical polemics by some ol the wise Pundits of the tide water school, I must adhere to the belief that the President would sign one bill as soon as the other.
