CHAPTER II. I lie wang-doodlo was placed upou the hew before we go further let us take a glance ft,,- political stato of America at the date , n slow opens. We were involved in a war ivith Mexico, and General Scott was carrying U ur victorious flag through the halls of the Muute-Ioosers. General Washington, com maiding the home army, had fomed a con nation with Christopher Columbus at Nau ,. o ami defeated the combined forces of Eng l imi France and Ilindoostau in a sanguinary retreat on Bugtown heights. Joliu C. Fre ulon t. President of the United States had ap pointed James Buchanan Governor of Cape {'n,); and Xapoleon Bonapart, as Mayor of Bunker Hill, assisted by Lieutenant General Harney O’Twigger of Ireland was preparing ■ | 0r a descent upon the tories, at Cerro Cordo, whilst Dr. Jane, U.

Under these tremendous circumstances no wonder the men and women of the 19th cen tury were highly intellectual, and generally ..raking, horn when they were very young, i urn we again to our story. CHAPTER III. Hu: wang-doodle was placed upon the hew ■r*g. Dismay and terror sat upon the coun tenances of the uobility. Lord Dc Mozo in voluntary elutched l'rince Blowhnsky’s coat tail, and the Countess of fizfum disappeared , historically within her hoops, whilst the bold Count dc Scratch hitherto the bravest of the brave, threw himself at the foot of the throne and elevated one foot as a signal of distress But the mighty Gengulphus was unmoved Drawing a golden wired safety fuse from his bosom lie was in the act of attaching one end of it t„ the wnog doodle when—Oh! horror of horrors!

Ho foamed, raved, ripped and tore—stamped, rol led. kicked and roared. At last seizing abat- teiiug ram by the horns, ho made a furious rush at the guilty pair. CHAPTER V. • Die!’ shrieked Gongulpbus, as he whirled die fearful instrument above their bends—but alas! in its swift descent it came in contact with Baron de Boosey’s pipe, and glancing at right angles clove asunder the massive doors leading to the lloyal Menagerie! ‘Brimstone aud Torpedoes!’ thundered Gengulphus—but be was too late. Ere he could again raise the Luge weapon a fierce demoniacal howl rang through the rooms, and the next moment an infuriated grizzly Cod-fish rushed madly forth from the demolished door and buried its dead ly fangs in tho seat of the mighty Gengulphus’ inexpressibles! He uttered a sharp cry of |oiu—made one desperate effort to shake of the monster—aud then fell to the fioor as dead as a Jane hug ia January. CHAPTER VI. lint little more remains to be told. Salleb, »oon alter the death of Gengulphus, stabbed herself with the bed wrench, aud her paramour, Fe-ti-le-Swash, boeomiug stricken with re morse, buried himself in a pot of porter—heels up.

A Woman’s Perversity. i .. }. * 1C Allowing story has been published uiiierent forms, but in none as good as the original: Sir Hugo had reached his fiftieth year un molested by passion, save an ardent one for l !lowing goblet. Instead of love passages, his delight was in tournaments, whence he alway ic-turned victorious. At length he xvas flun from trie saddle of his indifference by lii beardless tilter—love! He saw Angelica the fairest maiden of the land—forgot his gray iiamB, and, unmindful of the incongruity of a union between May and December, led her to the nuptial altar. Fortunately, Angelica was as modest as she was fair, and her firm virtue repulsed the numerous butterflies that swarmed round the opening flowers of her beauty. Sir Hugo knew the tried virtue of ms consort, and therefore she was to him dear and precious as the apple of his eye. One morning he rode to pay a visit to neighboring baron in arms, his honest squire, Conrade, trotting after him. Scarcely had they proceeded half way when the knight sud denly stopped, and cried— “Come here, Conrade, a most tormenting thought has just occurcd to me. This is the very day that Father Nicholas comes to the castle to say mass for my dear wife aud ray self, aud I am not inclined to have him in my abode during my absence; so gallop hack, and desire your lady, in my name not to admit the priest.” Conrade paused aud shook his head as if in doubt, and replied, “Excuse me, uiy noble sir, hut perhaps the lady Angelica, if left fo her own discretion, will do what you wish.” “A enrse on your perhaps!” exclaimed the knight; “I make all sure by giving the order.’’ “Do you think so ?” replied the squire “now I, in my simplicity, believe exactly the contrary. Take the advice of your faithful servant for once in your life; let things take their course, and give no order upon so deli cate a point.” “A fig for your delicacy,” cried Sir Hugo angrily; “what absurd fancies you have got into your head to-day! Do you think an hour’s ride a task so very tedious I" ‘.‘Oh! if it comes to that, sir,” rejoined Con rade, "I have no more to say.” He put spurs to his horse, and rode back to the castle. Angelica saw him galloping up, aud cried interrorfrom tliewindow, “What has brought you back iu such haste ? Has any accident happened to my Lord ?" “None, whatever, gracious lady,” answer ed Conrade; “but the noble knight was ap prehensive that some accident might happen ou, if by any chance you took a fancy to ride ultan.” “I ride—ride the large greyhound!” ex claimed Angelica in utter astonishment. “I believe you are drunk or mad. It is impossi ble that yonr master can have sent us so ri diculous a message.” Aye, but he did though,” pursued the squire “and my noble master said at the time that he knew Sultan would bite terribly, not being accustomed to he made a pony of; and he therefore begs that you will not attempt to divert yourself iu that xvay.” Having said this, he again mounted his horse and galloped off to rejoin his master. Ami awake, or do I dream ?” ejaculated Angelica. “The folly of Sir Hugo is so strange that I am almost tempted to believe it all a wild dream. What does he mean ? Is it not enough that I have hitherto tried to read his every will and wish, and, when known, obey ed them implicitly; and do I deserve that he should stretch his power so far, and play the capricious, haughty tyrant ? Now I see that to be too submissive, too softly compliant, is not the way to treat him; the worm that crawls in the dust is trampled upon. But no, Sir Ivnight, it is not gone quite so far with us yet, in spite of you I will ride Sultan ; and you may tbauk yourself, as but for your message, such a thought would never have entered my head.” Her soliloquy was here intercepted by the entrance of a servant, who informed her that Father Nicholas had arrived, and was in the antechamber. “I cannot receive his visit to day,” said the consort of Sir Hugo, “for my lord is ab sent. Give this ns my excuse to the rever end father, and beg of him to return to mor- In mute astonishment the knight hurried to seek an explanation from his squire, who had clipped away wlu-u Angelica began her com- plaint. “W lint message did you bring your lady ?” demanded he. Conrade now confessed the truth. " cr ® these the orders I gave you, you scoundrel 1” said the enraged Sir Hugo. “Certainly not,” replied the squire; “but you will own that I have made my point good. A. ou may now sec how it would have been had I given your order about the young priest. My noble lady is a model for her sex, aDd al most an angeJ, but still she is a daughter of Eve, who meant to have bequeathed to all her lineal female descendants her own spirit of perverseness. And we have only to remem ber the Lady Angelica’s pleasant ride upou out tan, to he convinced that it had lost none of its vigor in the descent.” From the Charleston Merc-ary. Tlie Slaver—her Crew and Cargo. The real name of the captured brig is the Geu. Putnam. These letters are partially e- rased and covered by those of the assumed name Echo, and would doubtless have been re stored, had success crowned the enterprise in which she was engaged when taken. She is of Baltimore build, say 280 tons harden, and, it is believed, was formerly a packet in the cof fee trade between that port and Rio. On the titli March last she cleared from New Orleans with a captain, two mates, eight seamen, a cook, steward and one passenger. On the 5th July she shipped a cargo of -155 slaves on the west coast of Africa, at Kabendn, situated in latitude 5.30 south, longitude 12.20east. It is in Lower Guinea, in the southern part of the District of Loango, and not far from the river Congo or Zaire. These slaves were purchased in a circuit of500 miles, and assembled at a barracoon near the point of shipment. The brig set sail with them, and in forty-seven days made the trip, reaching the point of destination on the morn ing of the 21st inst. In this space of time one hundred and forty one negroes had died, leav ing but three hundred and fourteen alive. A bay on “Cay Verde,” one of the keys on the north coast of Cuba, latitude 23.30, longi tude 80.20, was the landing place, where the Echo was detected by the Dolphin. The offi cers of the Dolphin left the harbor of Sagua la Grande the day before, and xvhile cruising west ward in search of slaves, perceived the Echo at daylight in the distance, bearing the British flag, ana running down the coast ahead of the Dolphin in the same direction. No suspicion was excited. The brig entered a bay. The Dolphin run on her course, and in good time came in view of the bay and the Echo. The captain of the slaver now lost his presence of mind, supposing he was suspected and pursued, and suddenly hauled off from the coast. It was then observed that a number of launches near shore had their sails set to the brig. This veri fied the suspicion excited by her strange move ment, and the Dolphin gave chase to the flying vessel, still bearing the British flag. Blank cartridges were fired, aud it became evident that the pursuer gained. The slaver spread all her canvas in vain, and finding herself about to fall into the clutches of the cruiser, thought to be British, hauled down that flag and run up the Stars aud Stripes. The Dolphin followed suit, displaying her placed in the midst of circles of eight or ten each, and well guarded to prevent the strong negroes from taking more than their, share, al though all are liberally allowed. A pint of water is given to each, morning and evening. Most of them sleep on deck, being placed in eloseorder, spoon-fashion,on their sides,and not permitted to turn or move during the night At day light they are dashed with buckets of water to wash them off. They sing songs, clappiug their hands and rocking their bodies in time, and these songs have a great resem blance to some of our negro spirituals. Several of the negro fellows exercise authority very much after the manner of our drivers, with airs of authority and ridiculous gesticulation and grimaces. Others were cooking the “big pot” like good fellows, and with old breeches on too, obtained from the sailors. The captain of the hold understands their lingo, and says they are very averse to going hack to Africa, as the United States’ law requires. Onr coast resembles that they come from, and the group of pines opposite the city on the south, looks to them like cocoanut trees of their native Af rica. Yesterday, under the direction of the Uni ted States civil officers, the negros, 30G in number, were taken by the steamer Gen. Clinch aud conveyed to Castle Pinckney, in our harbor, where they will be guarded by a detachment from the'garrison at Fort Moultrie. As they passed the plank to gain the steamer’s deck, they presented a strange and affecting sight, many, of them being reduced to mere skeletons by the suffering and deprivations of the voyage. Several were in a dying condi tion—a few dropsical, and a goodly number apparently in health. They were visited on Saturday by Mayor Macbeth and several Al dermen.

I have noticed several communications in your valuable paper extolling the merits of various Southern watering places ; but have seen no notice of this place, which certainly merits a high rank as a place of resort for those in pursuit of either health or recreation. Montvale Springs arc situated in Blount Coun ty, Tenn., about twenty-six miles from Lon don and the same distance from Knoxville— both stations on the East Tennessee and Geor gia Rail Road, and from both of which points daily lines of stages convey nassengers to the Springs, over good roads, affording travelers many fine views of mountain scenery; Tho distance from Charleston by Railroad is about 500 miles, and after leaving Augusta, Ga., is through a country whose diversified scene ry, when contrasted with the monotonous char acter of the country along the seaboard, de lights the eye of the traveler, and causes him to forget much of the fatigues and tediousness of Rail Road travel. Among other objects of interest, a good view of Stone Mountain is had from the cars, and the whole route is through a fine healthy country, a large portion of which is under cultivation. As for the springs themselves, the waters are known to be a certain remedy for many of the ills that flesh is heir to, and rarely fails to restore the invalid to his won ted state of health.

Now if my pony were hut here. He must have an easy gait, and his teeth I do not fear; he is as quiet as a lamb. Oh! how shall I delight in this two fold pleasure of showing the surly old fellow that I care neither for him nor his orders, and of trying a pastime that is at least a novel one-’ Through every comer of the house resoun ded now her cry of “Sultan.” “Here, boy, Sultan, Sultan!” The immense'but docile auimal sprang from a hone upon which he was feasting, and was at her side in an instant. Caressing him the she got him into a room, the door of wliich sill shut, “Now, friend Sultan,” cried his fair mis tress* “no growl, uo bite, aud all is safe.” With her snow-white hand she continued stro king and patting his huge hack for some min utes. and then, in the hope that, if only through gratitude, lie would comply with her fancy, she mounted her new steed. He showed his teeth a little, in some doubt what all that meant, but she soothed him again into a good humor and patient endurance of the novel bur then ; but he thought this quite enough, and did not stir from one spot-. Angelica wa3 nat urally not much pleased with being thus sta tionary; she therefore gently goaded him with her leg, but no trot would Sultan condescend— he remained motionless as before, while some thing very like a growl escaped from his im mense and fear inspiring jaws. Out of pa tience, she now exclaimed: “Yon shall feel the spur, then, you lazy brute,” and drove her heel into his 6ide. He now growled audibly, but stirred not an inch ; she repeated the blow. This was too much for canine patience—he made a spring, and as she fell full length upon the floor, he turned and bit her hand. The dismounted rider be dewed the floor with her tears, and then sprang up to turn out of tlio room tho uncourteous brute who had thus rudely shown how little ho understood play. Towards evening Sir Hugo returned and in quired with suspicious haste whether Father Nicholas had not been there. “Oh, lie was here,” answered Angelica, but I ventured to refuse his admittance. The knight cast a triumphant glance at his squire, and whispered to him, “Now, old Wis dom, do you see the use of my orders ?” Conrade, who, as may be supposed, had said nothing of the alteration he made iu the substance of his embassy,_ shrugged his shoul ders with a smile unperceived by his master, who had turned again to his consort, and first perceived that she wore a bandage upon her oft hand!

HACON, GA., F ORMERLY' knownastho Macon House, V- on First street, opposite Patten, Col- = , . . , ,, r Iins A Co., has been recently fitted up with jiLUH. It is estimated that these mines, at- j a J ar ,r e addition, for the accommodation of Boarders I N all tho heaviest Cotton regions of tho great South West, the INGERSOLL HOOP LOCK, with the common ICoop Iror- Unit:!, has superse ded every other method of securing the Cotton Bale. Time and space would fail us to give the numerous certificates of Cotton Planters Brokers, Warehouse men, Insurers, Compressors and Shippers, showing beyond a doubt, that the days of Rope binding are numbered, and the immense advantages of the Sloop 3. orL and Iron Tie. Their economy wherever tried, has been conceded in these points: 1. Tlicy »Jtvo twenty to thirty dollars cost in baling material on every oue hundred Bags. 2. The fastening is much more expeditiously ap plied, and much more convenient for the compress. 3. It is a perfect safeguard against loss of Cotton from the bale. 4. Itis mi almost absolute security against Fire. Fire applied to bales thus bound, as shown by actual experiment, will smoulder without flame, twenty hours without spreading, and allowing plenty of time for easy extinguishment. 5 ltis ait absolutely secure fastening. In actual experiments made in Montgomery, bales thus bourn’., were pitched down forty feet perpendicular from a house-top, upon a brick pavement, without perceptible effect. 6. It is perfectly simple,and requires no machinery at all in the application. Any common hoop-iron of proper width and thickness, (whicli is about £ inch wide, and a scant sixteenth of one inch thick,) and of any requisite length to suit the bale, is taken in the hand, one end passed through the opening, from the under side, of one end of the uuder part of the lock to the length of about one inch, and th bent over the end of the lock. The other end of the hoop is then passed round the halo and drawn through a loop or opening in the opposite end of the lock, and tnen bent in the same manner as the other. The button is then turned back to its placo over them, and the hoop is fast on the bale, and the bale may be moved if desired. 7. It bolds the package in one-fourth smaller com pass than rope—thereby rendering it easier to han dle, and cheapening freight. These facts and advantages are certified to by leading Warehouse men, Planters, Shippers and Bro kers in testimonials too numerous to be cited or spec ified in this advertisement. In Montgomery, the leading Brokers nnd Buyers, after the most satisfac tory experience and tests, unite in the following a- greement, which will leave no doubt on these points .- We, tlie uudersigued, Cotton Brokers and Buyers, of Montgomery, Ala., agree and give notice that we will pay full prices for Iron Bound Cotton, if fasten ed with the l.VGUBsifl.I, 53 00 8* BOCK, al though we are aware that it trill weigh l£ lbs. more per bale tiian Rope-tied Cotton.

Because of its great success in most of the European Sta-.s. its introduction into the United States was intended more especially for those of our father!and scattered here and there over the face of this mighty country. Meeting with great success among them, I now offer it to the American public, knowing that its truly wonderful medicinal virtues must be acknowledged. It is particularly recommended to those persons whose constitutions may have been impaired by the continuous uso of ardent spirits, or other forms of dissipation. Generally instantaneous iu effect, it finds its way directly to the seat of life, thrilling and quickening every nerve, raising up the drooping spirit, and, in fact, infusing new health and vigor in the system.
