THE SENSIBLE WISH.
VV hen a nympth at her toilet has spent the
Array’d in her lute strings and feathers
Her rival, the Butterfly, vain to excess,
May be ju-tly more proud, if there’s in*, rit
The pu> pie and gold in his plumage dis
Than velvet’s more soft, and more gav
But, ot all this advantage of dress, you
That the Butterfly still is less lov’d than
For the Bee, though he shines \yith no
purple and gold,
V et, provides a good lodging to fence from
For his honey we love him, in spile of his
And despise the gay insects that flutter
From hence the coquettes this plain lesson
That lh** useful alone are the lov’d of
Let the foolish and vain at the toilet still
In a fruitless endeavor to rival a fly;
V’ hen, if they succeed, like > fl y lor a day.

But let ME, like the IV e, ev'ry moment
And merit affection no time can remove.

“The Shark is there and the Shark's prey,
The Spendthrift and the Le. ch
That sucks him.” COWPER.
I will, according to your desire,
g’veyou a description of one of the
most destructive res >rts that ever was
devised by the malignant genius of
Satan. 1 The Saloon of “R'.gue et
N ir,” is one of the most fatuous a
m- og the numberless gambling shops
of fire West Indies. On entering the
apartment, the imagination is stunned
b> tin* horror which bursts upon the
eye—the terriftic laugh of the wins
n rs, the hellish shrieks of the utilor
t tin i te, and the half suppressed moan
ings of the utterly desperate, give me
Bit idea of an assembl-gc ot demons
celebrating some dreadful triumph
over human misery. There isobserv
ed a Spanish Don, whiskered and
mustachioed like ‘ancient Pistol,’and
exhibiting the picture of avarice, re
'cage, arid every wi< ked passion fer
metiting in his bosom—near him is
some stranger, Heceed of his last
tl-mblooii, and tortured with the pangs
of unavailing’ repentance. A third
group is formed of the lookers-on,
who have formed most manful resolu
ti .ns to resist the golden temptations
around them, but who gradually yield
td the irresistible fascinations of the
pi.es of geld, so splendidly spread out
on the long green tables. A marble
covered sideboard is set off with a
variety of dell mus liquors, whose
stimul tting qualities are enhan ed by
some m diemal preparation, which
* fires the young blood,’ and hurries
the deluded vis till! to destruction.
A few evenings ago, 1 was pacing
through the saloon with a friend, who
was an ail. pt in all the mysteries of
the gaming establishment; we bad
walked round the t ircuit tables, when
our attention was arrested by the
moans of some figure, stretched out on
a sofa in a dark corner. The lurid
gleam which now and then llasned
from a lamp on the features ol this
unfortunate, presented one ot the
most awful pictures of despair that
ever convulsed the human counte
nance. The ghastly paleness of his
face was fearlessly contrasted by the
jetty blackness of his locks, which
were clustered about his brow. The
sight was appalling—but we were fix
ed to the spot by the interest which
the hapless victim excited. We, at
length overcome by our feelings,
walked away, and as we were turn
ing down the dark steps which led to
a Solitary lane, we observed an object
gliding by us in the greatest agitation.
It was the wretched man whom we
had just been contemplating. He
stopt short, and exclaimed—‘young
gentlemen, if you will be ruled by my
dreadful experience, never again tn
ter that infernal door—l have tins
night lost the last particle of an im
inetice fortune, and nothing now re
mains for me but death*—There was
something peculiarly impressive in
the tones of his voice—
‘Whose sound though I should linger out
Than wretch e’er told can never leave my
He rushed into the darkest part ol
Hie long avenue, and soon afterwards
Hie explosion of a pistol told us idcfi
mile of lus tragic tale.
There he s'amis! The mouth of
the drunkard, you may observe, on
tracts a singularly sensitive appear
ance—seemingly red and rawish; and
lie. is perpetually li king or smacking
Ins lips, as if his palate were dry and
adust. His is a thirst that water
will not quench. He might as well
drink air. His whole being burns
for a drain. The whole world is
contrasted into a calker. What a
snout he turns up to the morning air,
inflamed, pimpled, snubby, and dirty,
and with a nob at the end on’t, like
one carved out of a stii k by the kmte
of a school boy—rough and hot to the
very eye, a nose which rather than
pull, you would submit even to be in
some degree insulted. A perpetual
cough harasses and exhausts him, and
a perpetual expectoration flow his
hand trembles! It is an effort even to
sign his name; one of his sides is cer
tainly not by any means as sound as
the other; there has been a touch of
palsy there; and the next hint will
draw down his chin to his collar bone, I
and convert him, a month before dis
solution, into a slavering idiot. A j
dram-drinker—faugh! faugh! Look
over—lean over that stile where a pig
lies wallowing in mire.—and a voice,
faint, and feeble, and far off, as if it
came from some dim and remote
world within your lost soul, will cry.
that of the two beasts, that bristly
one, a grunter in sensual sleep, with
its snout snoring across the husk-1
trough, is as a physical, moral ami
intellectual being, superior to you,
late, Major in his Majesty’s regi
ment of foot, now dram drinker,
drunkard, ami dotard, and self-doom
ed to a disgraceful aud disgusting
death ere you shall have completed
your thirtieth year. What a chang
ed thing since that day when you car
ried the colours, and were found, the
bravest of the brave, and the most
beautiful, with the glorious tatters
wrapped round your body all drench
ed iu blood! Your father and your
mother saw your name in the ‘Great
Lor(IV desp uh; and it was as much
as he could do to keep her from ful
ling to thi’ floor, for ‘her j ty was like
a de* psi igh !’ Both are dead now;
and better so, for Hie sight of that
blotched face and those gLzed eyes,
now and then glittering in ti tul tren
zc, would have killed them both, uor,
r-fter such a spectacle, could their old
bones have rested io the grave.
J 1 TRUE FISH STORY.
A grand b:\tile was fought last
week in Harps well river, Maine, be
twe* n a shoal offish, some ot them 30
or 40 fi-et long, and 70 or 80 inhabi
tants, armed wi'li muskets, harpoons
and hatchets, and many other kinds
of weapons. The fish were driven in
to a shallow cove, and 76 were killed
and taken. Many laughable inci
dents grew nut of Hie contest. A Mr.
Curtiss singled out one of the largest
of the fish, and made a regular as
sault. upon him. Armed with a broau
a\e he threw himself from his boat
astride a monster 22 feet in length
and rode him a number of rods (..il
the while cutting in him with tin
greatest industry) before he despatch
ed him. Classic story tells us of Avi
on who was carried ashore on the
back of a porpoise —but Harpswell is a
true story & will long boast of their
Representative, who rode ashore on
the bark of a Grampus.
This reminds us of an incident
somewhat similar, winch occurred
several years since, in our own Con
iiecticut. Formerly great numbers
of sturgeon, and many of them oi
monstrous size, were‘taken at our
sli.-td fisheries along the river. A few |
miles below this city, at a fishing!
place of considerable celebrity* an
immense number of suad were ericios
ed at a draft of the seine, and among,
them were observed several sturgeon
of great size. As they appro.* hed
the shore, an honest Put, one of the
fishermen was directed to go without
the net, and endeavor to prevent the I
sturgeon from breaking out. The:
fish were now so near the shore that
each sturgeon was pi vinly tone distin
guished. Pat picked out the largest
among them, and throwing himself
astride him, plat ed Ins hands within
his gdls. and attempted to urge him to
dry land. But this was t.iking a
liberty whi ti lus fish ship could not
tolerate. He closed his gills firmly
upon Pat’s flippers, and shaping lus
course in a different direction burst
through the seine and carried his iu
voluritary rider, sometimes above the |
surface of tiie water, and sometimes
beneath, about thirty rods. After lie;
had reached the shore which he waV
able to do through the assistance of a
boat, one of the fishermen asked him
how he was pleased with his jaunt.
‘•O h!*’ replied the submarine na
vigator, * what, a divil of a horse lit is
for a fish—by the blessed Saint Pat- j
ri< k, if it wan‘t for the name of riding
I should rather go a-fut.
! ALL persons indented to toe estate o
John M‘or mick. late of Warren count)-,
deceased, are desired to make immediate
payment; and those having demands a
gainst said estate, are reouented to pre
