Knvy’s the worst of fiend.s, procurer of sad events. And only good when she herself torments. Plutarch compares envious persons to cuppinj; glasses, which ever draw the worst humours of the body to them. Like flies, they resort only to the raw and corrupt parts of the body ; or if they lijrht on a sound part, never leave blowing upon it till they have disposed it to putrefaction. When Momus could find no fault with the face in tlie picturc of Venus, he picked a quarrel with her slippers. And so malevolent persons, when they cannot blame the substance, will yet represent tiic circumstance of men’s best actions with prejudice. The black shadow is still observed to wait upon those who have been the most il lustrious for virtue, or remarkable for some perfection ; and to exult in either has been an unpardonable crime. The man who envies, must behold with pain Another’s joys, and sicken at his gain. The man unable to control his ire. Shall wish undone what hate and wrath inspire. Anger’s a short frenzy ; then subdue Your pasoions, er your passions conquer jou; Unlesb your reason holds the guiding reins, And bends the tyrant in coercive chains, talents to devote their time to the pur suits of iitr-rature—to reprint in a hand some manner, all the standard English works—to have an extensive establish ment, at which all the work of the asso ciation shall be performed, and all this work to be disposed of to booksellers on ly, so that the society will in,no way in terfere with the trade. Other ol)jects of the plan are to engage and encoiirage Atnerican Artists, in prepurint.^ the em bellishments of the works to be printed— to ensure the utmost correctness in the publications of the society, and to reduce the price of standard Aitierican anil for eign works to a moderate rate. It is re marked that a person desirous of formin|j a library in this country, at the present moment, must, in most instances^ pur chase, at high j)rices, Eiujlish editions^ of some of the best works in the language, | because the .\mericun editions are both 1 slovenly, and, in many instances, incur-; rect. Thus foreign labor and skill rc-i ceive that I’cwartl which might have! been dispensed at home, yielding ut once j support to labor, and encouragement to j imi»rovement. Tlie Typo^^raphical So-1 ciety have in view to obviate-this condi-{ tion of things—and every friend of A- merican literature must wish success to the design. Nat. Inielli^'cncer.

Judge , of Lu/.erne, a very strong man on thd Democratic side, writes most encourag ingly that all the Northern and North western counties are for the Adniinistra^ tration—to these add as certain Bucks, Ingram’s county—Montgomery, Jona than Roberts’ county—Chester, (.’harles Mercer’s county—the city and county ot* Philaflelphia—Delaware—Miffliri—Cen tre—Lebanon—Adams—Beaver and Al legany. 'I'his may be relied upon—and the changes in favor of the Administra tion are every day more and more appa rent. The great leading policy of tlio Administration is the policy of Pennsy]- vaiiia. W( are for home industry, roads, canals, agriculture, maTiufacturcs and commerce, £% have n" constitutional sciui pies, real or affected, about the promotion anrl encouragement of Internal Improve ment. The policy avowed by the Op* position we are averse to as repugnant to our feelings and interest, and will in no way be sanctioned by this state. We arc for principles not men. And I cati assure you that the determination as de# dared and thus far acted up to, to put down the present Administration, “right or wrong,” is taking deep root in th® minds of all serious and disinterested people who have only their country’s good at heart, and they arc determined to rise up and resist such an alarming; doctrine. That Mr. Adams will be re elected is as certain in my mind as any event can be that has not already takeii place. Mr. W. W. Seaton, one of the editoifli of the National Intelligencer, has pub lished, in the Washington Telegraph, th^ following account of a casual dialogue be tween him and Colonel Richard M. John- son. Senator in Congress, from Kentuc ky. “Some time in the session of 1S25-/J as I was passing through the Setiato chamber to the secretary’s table, after th» Senate had adjourned, I was hailed by Col. Johnson (sitting near one of the firo places under the gallery, with one otiict* member standing or walking near him) who, in his familiar manner of speaking, said, “ How goes it, old friend : Well, when are you coming out.'” “ AVt/or—On what subject, Colonel.^ “Co/.
