When rntsts are gathering cm the lull!
No sound is heard rave mountain rill!
Then hear ihe echo whispering near,
In sos es: accents to thine car-
I love thee, dearest brother !
When silence reigns through earth and sea—
When g ows the star of Memory—
When Music wakes her tlirill-ng tone,
And Autumn winds around thee moan—
Their accents hear, and oh rejoice 1
For hark! there c mes ft-.vel-known voice—

And L ivo’s enchan-m-nt too i? high—
When calm blue wa'ers round ihee flow ;
Then hear thy sister breathing low—
I love thee, dearest brother!
Should Disappoin’men'** withering breath
Consign thy brightest hopes to dea ii—
Should Friendship’.'-trust in boyhood made,
In afier years prove faith betrayed ;
Then to thy sister yet return :
For oh, her heart will fondly burn
To elasp her dearest brother!
Should Sorrow cloud thy coming years,
And bathe ihv prospects all in tears,
Remember that the rainbow’s hue

Remember, though w< ’re doomed to part,
There lives one find and faithful heart

“ Tne women of France, considered gener

are angular, meagre, and and; their skin of
greenish hi own, or olive hue; their hair of an
opaque duty looking black, and excessively
coarse; their forehead low, the general con

Count Stendhal, like that of the monkey; ilteir

When the brave Admiral Kemperfeldt, un
happily lost in the Royal George, was coin
ing into port to have his ship paid off, a sai
lor eyed a gold-laced velvet waistcoat, which
his commander wove, with great earnestness,
and in his best sea fashion, begged to know
who made it. The Admiral perceiving his
drift, gave him the necessary information, and
Jack went on shore. He forthwith applied
to the Admiral’s tailor, who, knowing the hu
mors of his customers, asked vvliai lie would
have the back made of? “ Made of,” said
Jack, “ the same as the front, to be sure.”
The tailor remonstrated, but in vain ; so the
waistcoat was made, and put on with an old
greasy jacket over it. Shortly after, tfie Ad
miral met his man in this curious dress, which
occasioned him to laugh heartily ; and this
merry fit was not a little increased when
Jack, corning tip to him, lifted ihe hind part
of his jacket, showed his gold-laced back, and
exclaimed, “ See here, no false colors ; stem

th adust. In hides the demand continues strong
and some tough stories are told of recent ope
rations; ihete has been much puling and
hauling. Indigo looks rather blue. Iron goes
off very hard. Lead continues heavy, hut
goes off in small quantities very rapid. Hole
leather is very much pressed down. 0.l goes

REGULATION OF LXUIANG.' ; i.
There lias never occurred tu our political
itslory, a circumstance that deserves lo Ire
•mre deeply weighed by the Demon a lie par*
y, than ihepresin posit.on of the commer
cial exchanges. No event ever displayed, in
i manner so palpable and glaring, the reck
a’ss and false assertions winch arellie favor
te weapons of Federalism against Democrat
c principles, measures and men. Six months
•go, and every stock-matkel bulletin fiom
W ail streeet and Chestnut street was teeming
with “ the derangt incut of tbreign and dontes
i:c Exchanges.” Exchange un Etigland was
fiiieen or twenty pet cent! Exchange on New
Orleans, Mobile, Charleston, Naichez, and
other places, was ten, fifteen, tvven’v percent.
All the operations of comnietce were at a
stand; credit was destroyed, and enterprise
was annihilated. For ail this, there was one
cause, and one tentedv. The cause was the
war of “'the Government” on the banks and
the merchants; the specie citcnlar; the gold
humbug; the exclusive metallic currency;
the cursed spit it of Loco Foc.oism; tire lega
cy ol Jacksonism; the vile principles of Jef
fersonian Democracy. The remedy—the
sole remedy—was, to defi nt the administra
tion; melinite- a national hank, if possible;,
if not, to uphold ti e exploded deposits sys
tem; to put an end to all “experiments,;”
in a word, to succumb to the credit system.
When Congiess assembled in September, the
President ventured to ex press the opinion that
none ol these things was either the cause or
the remedy; that the derangement of ex
change and the embarrassment of trade arose
liotn txcessive speculaun and over-trading,
the natural consequence of excessive issues of
paper money; and that tire remedy would
not I'e found in adding anew stimulus to
these causes, hut in avoiding all interference
by the Government; in leaving the sound
sense ol the American people to retrieve their
embarrassments in their own way; in waiting
for the results ol that economy and reduction
of put chases and imports which were already
commenced ; and, above all, m looking for the
pawn -m of our debts to the teal pioductions
of our industry, the c;ops of our tarmers and
planieis— not to firsti tsst.ts ol paper money,
or new supplies of hank iiicthties.
And liow were these suggestions of a sound
patriotism received? Tiiey were scarcely
made, belbre they were denounced with “all
the and Cette \ * ol Federalism. Tl e.e was “no
system lor leguiatiug t xchanges there was
“no lemedy lor the ilistitss;” there was “no
aid from the Government;” the sutieiings of
the country were healed vvilli litat lies* indif
ference; Nero sat tidkng while liome vva3
hiirn.ng ! This trash, or something worse,
was echoed and re-echoed ft• >lll the Capitol to
Wall street —from the caucus to the stock
exchange. It was despatched by the Express
mails, “ from our coi ie.sp>hdeuts at V\ asiiing
to be hashed up 111 theFedeta! gazettes
of Boston, New Yo.k, Pmladelpiiia, New Or
leans and even in these brilliant foreign ad
juncts of Federalism, the bankers* newspa
peis in London and Paris. All, however,
Vvas in vain. Congress was tnexotahie; none
of the “ remedies’ were hied ; nay mote, llm
te-tslablishment of a national hank was voted
down; the restoration of the deposite system
was voted down; and the representatives of
the people went home,alter giving time to the
metehaiits and the banka tor 1 lie payment ot
their debts, hut without adopting a singleone
of tlie indispensable nostrums which Federal
ism had demanded.
Hut what, m the meanwhile, had the quiet
and mighty mass of the American people been
doing? \\ hat was (he course of hie Jiaidy
and industrious yumianrv of the land ? Was
the wagoner calling on lieirules lo help him
I’tont the mite? Was the planter of Carolina
or Mississippi, with his fields white with abun
dant cotton; or the farmer of Pennsylvania
or Illinois, with his harvest of teeming grain,
tarrying for “ the aid of Government ?” Was
the thnity mechanic, the unspeculative mer
chant, or the prudent tradesman, waiting un
til Congress should “ regulate exchanges r”—
No: such was not their course. They were
curtailing their expenditures, they were re
fraining from speculations, they were import
ing less liom abroad, they were living mere
frugally, they were sending round their crops
to pay what they owed, they were meeting
the emergency with the bounteous resources
which their own industry, and the blessings of
Providence on their country, had placed stall
times within their control.
And what is the result? Without the least
change in the conduct and policy of the Ad
ministration ; while every one oi’ the causes
that have been assigned, remains in full ope
ration; without the adoption of a singlerem-
edy proposed bv Federalist or Conservative,
the Exchanges have regulated themselves !
