THE ROBBER’S WIFE.
This drama is a tale of crinfie, sorrow, and re
morse—the hero and heroine, the once gay
Mark Redland, now Murdock the robber ; Rose
Briarlv, erst the pride of the village, the Rob
ber’s Wife. Alas! how changed their appear
nnce and condition —their complexions stained,
their hair dyed ; —the miserable tenants of a
wretched hovel, bearing the Semblance of :m
inn, to lure the unwary traveller to plunder and
ou'rage. The first critne of Rose was disobe
dience: her father, to retrieve a ruined fortune,
had journeyed to a for conn'ry, leaving his
daughter in the care of an old friend, who had
promised her protection during his absence. In
defiance of duty she married his bitterest foe—
the man who had robbed him, and who (though
then she knew it not) was an outlaw and a fel
lon. Poverty and mutual reproach followed
this act ofdisobedience ; and Rose, without hav
ing lifted the dagger against the defenceless
stranger, was Still the passive agent.of her hus
band’s crimes, the sharer of his confidence and
guilt. Murdock is the chief of a gang of coin
ers, among whom is sawney Mac/Tle, whose vo
cation is that of a guide to decoy travellers to
the Fox and Goose. This rogue, by virte of a
golden ingot, has brought considerable wealth
to the common stock —Ins plan is to pretend ig
norance of its real value, and offer it for sale to
some gull, whos 'cupidity cannot Withstand the :
temptation of taking advantage of a clown who 1
sells it as brass : and in truth Sawney keeps 1
his word, for while the bargain is being struck,
he dexterously contrives to substitute in its place
a similar-looking wedge of the baser metal,
which the purchaser unsuspectingly receives ;
and thus the golden ingot is a continual mine of
Wealth to the gang. Travellers are on the
road ; and under the sure guidance of Sawney
Macfile, they reach the too o:ninous sign of the
Fox an 1 Goose. The one, a 'stranger, return
ing to his native village after a long absence ;
the other, his attorney, to bear witness (when
every body thinks him dead and buried) that his
client is not his own ghost, A portmanteau —
Murdock volunteers his services to take charge
of it, which the stranger declines— pistols! —
they must be disposed of, or tint booty is doubt
ful. Seated “in the worst inn’s worst room,”
surrounded with dilapidated finery, the stronger
begins the oft repeated tale of his woes ; but
the lawyer, whose throat is as dry as a barris
ter’s brief, and whose stomach is as empty as the
courts in a long vacation, threatens to enter an
action against the larder —and so wretched are
its contents, that the attorney, baffled in every
attempt to eat, contents himself with grumbling ;
and his weary client, seeing there is no other
method of allaying it, resolves to s ! cep away
his appetite. Sawney Macfile, watching his op
portunity, plays off his old trick of the ingot ;
and Lawyer Pen fuddle is very pleasantly cheat
edout of five guineas in the hope of gain iutr fif
ty. At this moment Rose appears on the gallery
passage, and descending into the room, encoun
ters the attorney. She fixes her eyes up.
on him as if she would search infolds very—
pocket. Ho retires from her keerr glance to
look after his steed, and leaves her alone with
the sleeping stranger. She cautiously ap
proaches to remove the pistols and sees the port,
manteau. Gracious heaven ! can it be ? —She
drops on her knees to examine it—the buckles
the straps —and yet so many years have pass
ed, the recollection may not bo trusted. She
turns her eyes on the stranger —his face is cov
ered —the suspense is horrible —with a trem
bling hand she draws away the handkerchief —
she shrieks aloud —the stranger starts from his
slumber, and, seizing his pistols, demand the
cause of the outcry. She resumes her pre
sence of mind—she remembered him in bis na
tive village, and from his long absence, thought
him dead. She entreats him once more to com
pose himself to sleep ; she will sit at the thresh
old of his door, nor again disturb him, though
’ her brain be on fire. He regards her with sym
pnthy — once, indeed, there was a gentle crea
ture 'who proffered all these kind attentions—he
had a daughter ; but she had neglected and for
got him, and gone he knew not whither. Lose
now relates her oten unhappy story, between
which and the stranger’s there is a remarkable
coincidence. She had been a disobedient child,
and her father—if he still lived —lived but to
curse her. Impossible a father curse his child ?
No, no!—The stranger rushes towards her
prizes intensely, and parts the hair on her fore
head —alas', ’twas a trick of fancy—the dark
coun'enance and raven locks are not those of
his child. One question more —if his daughter
had married his enemv, would—would he for
give her? Never! —Her heart is smote, and
she fell senseless into his arms.
Among the many dupes of Sawnev Macfile’s
ingot, is Larry O’Gig, an Irish adventurer, who
in travelling through these parts, had paid the
accustomed tribute to Sawney’s ingenuity for
teaching the difference betwixt gold and brass !
Determined to hunt out the impostor, he had
commenced a search with two officers of jus-
tice, and the first party he meets is Mr. Penfud
die, who, from the singular communicativeness
of O’Gig, discovers that he has also been play
ed the like trick. The scene is enlivened with
’the Irishman’s brogue, the lawyer’s vexation,
and a ruse performed by Sawney in person,
which places Penfuddle in custody of the civil
power, as a ring-dropper and rogue.
The stranger having determined to sot forth
on his journey, it is debated between Murdock
and a brother ruffian how he is to be disposed
of. Rose, driven to desperation by the im; end
ing danger, declares to her husband that, if he
or his confederates give the old man one evil
eye, or one ruffian thought, he shall die the
death of the dog. Mutual recriminations and
defiances pass between them ; and Murdock,
excited to a pitch of fury, swears, thatpf her
father were alive again, he would dare a thou
sand deaths to enjoy measure of revenge! He
whispers the ruffian his instructions—in ten nu
tates the deed shall be done.
When Rose drew the handkerchief from the
face of the sleeping s'ranger, she discovered with
horror and amazement the features of her father!
Hence the start of terror —the shriek —the over
whelming remorse, that convulsed her frame,
and laid her (though he knew it not) a penitent
at his feet. Not a moment is to be lost—she
informs him of the design against his life, and
concerts means to save it. Murdock and Ro
dov now enter —she feigns sleep—is this the
way to keep watch ? They examine the pistols
which are harmless, for the charges arc drawn.
She is commanded to leave the room—resist
ance is vain—she, however contrives to dart
behind the window-curtain, and watch their
movements. The robbers break open the port
manteau. in which they discover a purse and
some letters; during this, Rose gently turns the
table round upon its centre, which reverses the
situation of the unloaded pistols, and those of
Iter husband —she makes a sign, and the strang
er, having the hitler within his reach, seizes
them. Murdock now proceeds to examine the
letters —can it he ?—Briarl v still living ]—Then
rs ho within his grasp ! The stranger rushed
forth at the exclamation —Murdock snaps the
unloaded pistol at him—he is foiled —the gang
enter —when Larry O’Gig appears most oppor
tunely with his huge shilelah, and Murdock
finding till is lost, dashes through the window, j
followed bv the Irishman. Shots are fired from :
without —a pause of terror and anxiety ensues
—O’Gig returns, triumphantly bearing Rose in
bis arms —the grateful father once more embra
ces his penitent child—the robber has fallen.
A Clerical Factotum. —Under this head a
correspondent of the London Spectator has ex
hibited some of the many abuses which exist in
the government of Upper Canada. The expo
sition is intended to unmask the avaricious con
duct of the stipendiaries of the 4 /Established
Church,’ in the American colonies. The wri
ter commences with the 4 honorable and venera
ble Archdeacon Stuacuax,’ rtf York, who bolus
the following offices, and receives their emolu
ments. Ist. He is perpetual President of the
Board of Education, which entitles him to a sa
lary from government. 2d. He is a Legisla
tive Counsellor, and one of the most active to
ry politicians in America- 3d. He is Rector
and Parish Priest of tiic Church of England at;
York, for which, in addition to his salary, ho
has obtained several grants, which he has leas
ed out at an immense profit. 4 : h. He is an ac-.
t!ve member of the Executive Council of the
Province and receives a compensation as such.
sth. He is a missionary of the society for pro
moting Christian knowledge, and in this capaci
ty receives £278, a year by vo‘e of the Imperi
al Parliament. 6'h. Me is one of the principal
stockholders of the Bank of Upper Canada,
holding several hundred shares in that institu
tion. In connexion with his other offices, he
sits at the board, as a director of tlie bank, re
gulating its discounts ! 7th. He is a member of
the clergy corporation for regulating the pro
ceeds of a seventh of all the lands of Upper
Canada hitherto applied to the use of the 4 Es
tablished Church.’ 6th. He is a Justice of the
Peace, empowered to act as such in every coun
tv in the province, and paid by fees. 9th. He
is President for life of the University of King’s
College. The manner in which the affairs of
this institution have been managed has given so
great dissatisfaction to the inhabitants of the
Province, that three successive Parliaments have
unanimously petitioned to the King for redress
—but without success. 1 Oth. He is a member
of the College Council. 11th. He is a mem
ber of the Colonial Land Council. 12th. He
is Senior member of eleven Boards of Educa
tion, situated in each district of the Colony.
13th. He is a member of the board of Commis
sioners for settling titles to estates, and ns such
paid by foes. 14th. He is Acrhdeacon of York
in the bishoprick of Quebec, and diocese of
Canterbury—receiving therefore £3OO a year.
He is also aD. D. 15th. He is a Trustee of'
the Royal Institution. Lastly, he is a first rate
land jobber and speculator annually clearing
many thousand dollars that wav.
The open bribery practised at elections in
England has often been spoken of. It seems
not to have been less freely resorted to in choos
ing Vnembers fora Reformed House of Commons
than before. The Bristol Mercury gives a print
ofa 4 a bribery box” that has been freely resort
ed toon the occasion of the late election there,
and adds the following note :
Al a house, Xo. 8, in King street, the parlor

and on its being raised sufficiently high to admit

A Quaker named Pease has been returned to

° A member of the Society of Friends, by name
Joseph Pease, has been placed at the head of the

county of Durham. He is a man of consider

of the county, as this election proves —there be

Mr. Joseph Pease, however, has some appre
hensions as to his reception in the House ot
Commons. He may not court, but he obviously
anticipate* martyrdom.—He told the electors
that 44 he was well aware that he must go
through much persecution tn their cause, and that
he should not be surprized if the Sergeant at
Arms be ordered to take him into custody.”
These fears take their rise in Mr. Joseph
Pease’s honest and conscientious repugnance to
take the necessary oaths. He declares that he
cannot take an oath—that the taking of oaths
is unlawful —and that he is resolved to contest
their expediency with the Speaker, at the haz
ard of being removed from the House by the
Sergeant rt Arms.— N. Y. American.

TO THE PUBLIC.
THE controversy between the City, and the T trus
tees pf the Academy, having become one of some
interest to the citizens, the City Council have deemed it
advisable togive this ?hort notice to the public, of their,
reasons for the above Ordinance, and the necessity which
called for it.
The City Council have been advised and believhd,
that when Augusta was laid out and planned by the pro
prieto’y government, the common was defined and ap
pended to the town, for the common benefit of the let
holders, and citizens, as the word “ town common,” itself
seems to import. ,
That being thus appropriated<*.o the public, or com-,
mon use of the citizens, this right has never been taken
from them by the legislature, or abandoned by them
selves. Nor has any act been passed interfering with
the rigf-t.of common in the citizens, except at their own
request, or for their supposed benefit.
That the power to lease given to the trustees, war to
lease for seven years, and has long since expired, and,
being then given to promote the health ot the city, at the
request of the citifeens, should not now i be exercised,
when experience has shewn that the enclosure would
most probably be injurious to the health cf the city, and
is therefore opposed to the wishes of the citizens.
That the City Council, have not abandoned the rights
of the citizens by paying for a few years for their'own
property, in ignorance or neglect of the rights of the
citizens, which they failed until recently to investigate.
That this neglect is less extraordinary than the un
warrantable assumption of a fee simple title in the trus
tees, when m fact they never were appointed any thing
more than the mere agents of the state to lease.
That the trusteesare themselves conscious that they
have no legal title to the common, is sufficiently man
itested by the desperate step recently taken by them, of
causing the common to be run out as vacant Land, under
the law securing head rights.
The City Council acting only as the guardians of the
rights of the citizens, expect their reasonable co-opera
tion in the mairttainance of their rights.

FOR ENLARGING AND IMPROVING THE
A Papet now published Weekly in Athens, Geo.
npHE rafid increase of population, wealth and Intel
PL ligence of Western Georgia, have prompted the
Editors, of tie “ Southern Banner,” in Jrder to keep
pace with tie improvement of the times —to lay before
their friend; and patrons, the,folio wing proposals :
They intuid abent the first of February next, to publish
the “ Banntf” on a large imperial sheet—not inferior in
size or style of execution, to any now published in the
State —foTthe accomplishment of which purpose, they
have ordered from New-York an entire .Hew set of mate,
The Editors deem it unnecessary at this late day, to
enter into a minute detail of their political creed—they
would deem it bat a work of supererogation. Suffice, it
to say, their best efforts will always be directed (by dis
seminating correct principles, religious, moral and
political) to the advancement of the interest, honor and
happiness of the people—particularly that portion of
them comprising the Western and North Western sec
tion of the State; and to whom they mainly look for pat
ronr.ge and support.
The patronage of the Banner is now respectable, but
not sufficient to meet the increase of expenditure that
must necessarily occur, in effecting the improvements
contemplated. They are sanguine, however, in the
hope, that a liberal public will yield to their efforts, that
support and encouragement, upon which they alone
must rely, for the successful accomplishment of an un
dertaking so responsible.
The price of subscription will be the same as.here
tofore—viz : $3,00 per annum in advance, or $4,00 if
payment is delayed until after the year expires.
As an inducement to cur friends to exert themselves
for us, we offer to give a copy of the Banner for every
ten responsible names forwarded by any one individual.
Letters, post paid, addressed to the Editors, or to
Albon Chase, Publisher, will receive prompt attention.

ment of each month. This, it is believed, will be found
of general advantage to subscribers.
The February number of the Lady’s Book contains
the usual variety of interesting literary matter, includ
ing several original articles ot great merit. 'lhe em
bellishments have been adopted and prepared with at
tentive care, and it is believed will give universal satis,
faction. The frontispiece, representing the Queen ot
Belgium, is, at this juncture, peculiarly appropriate,
and has much merit as a picture. The whole-length ol
Napoleon is one of the best specimens of that stylo ol
engraving, which lias ever been presented to the public,
and reflects high credit on the artist, Mr. Lubhren. The
Mermaid of Martin Meer, though of a different kind,
is no less excellent. Lord Byron’s heautitul stanzas
“ There is none of beauty’s Daughters,” set to music
by an eminent composer, will be found in this ntmber.
L. A. Godev &. Co. take this opportunity of request

this section of the country eminently abounds, as will 1

FOR PUBLISHING, BY SUBSCRIPTION,

A weekly Newspaper to be entitled the
TO HE COSIHTTED BY HOWELL COBB.
ON presenting to the people this prospectus, the Edi
tor (ieems it superfluous to sax on« word with re
gard to the utility of newspapers. Therefore, went,
particularly at this time, other duties thut ra not be
avoided so easily. In entering the political arena, wq
may r.ot conceal our sentiments ; for we conceive it our
duty, to oar friends and opponents, friendly to avow
them. The State Rights’ Doctrines as contended for
by the best expounders of the Constitution are tho#*
we avew ; we hold that each state has reserved to bar
self, afi and every right, not surrendered up and mun
crated in the Cdiishiution of the United States ; th*t
they may, nay should, and have reserved for the very
purpose, those rights, that whenever occasion require*]
they may be exercised ; but the states should be care
ful, in the exercise of what are called and supposed t*
be reserved rights, those surrendered up are not viol*,
ted : for they are no more the rights of the states than H
\ they had never been exercised by them. The General
• Government too, must move within its legitimate sphere 1 ,
carefully observing what powers it may exercise—what
are reserved to the respective sovereignties and what
have hot been granted. While Fare, we retnark that
w.e are uncompromising Union men, and fed and consider
ourselves identified with all those that noW rally under
the standard of the twenty.four states, whatever minor
distinctions may, heretofore, have separated us. * v
As respects the parties in Georgia, too, we have A
word to say.—We havejacted with perfect satisfaction
to ourieives, with the Republican- party* The spirit
of that party will be carried into our labours ; but wo
wish it understood that we have not, and cannot
now consent, to advance our party views and pros
pects by contending against those of our opponents.]
we oifier to our opponents the free use of our columns,
if they are properly used. ...
It is useless td say any thing of the interesting couiw
try in which the Intelligencer will be located—the
farmer is invited there by its fertile lands—the un.
healthy, by its waters and air—the chymist by tho
valuable treasure found in its bosom.
The earliest attention and notice will be given of all
new discoveries of gold mines or other valuable curiosi
The Editor will practice Law in the counties of Che
