IIOSEST ABfD HAPPY.
There's much in the world that is iloubiful,
There's much wc shall ncTer understand
Why Virtue should live in a roor-hcuse,
And Vice on the fat of the land.
For those w!:o arefreiful and peevish,
This duty remains to fulfil;
But try to bo honent and happy, s
And let the world do as it will
The poor wretch who walks upon crutches.
May often be envied far more ,
Than he who in splendid apparel
Can shut on the beggar his iloor ;
He caies not for claret and sherry ;
Of venison he has r.ot his fill
JTct dares to be honest and fiappy,
And lets the world do as it will.
lie toasteth no lordly possessions,
Mo livery at fable to wait; .
He maketh no hollow professions
To cheat his friend, coeiier or late :
Ho ruins no hard-woiking trades-man,
Who gets but a curse fur his bill;
But tiics to be honest and happy,
- And lets the world do a3 it will.
He jiiins not the bowl or the wassail,
lie seeks not the gambler or sot;
Contentment and health are the blessings
That daiiy recur to his lot; .
And while in the midst of his childien
Good precepts he strives to instil,
He shows that he's honest and happy,
And let's tho world do as il will.
Oh ! who w ould then grumble at fortune,
Though sorrow and toiling betide 1
The man who with iceullh is aviltian
Alight be virtuous wrie it denied !
Too much may o'erbuiden and sink you,
Too little oil keep you from iii;
Then try to be honest and happy,
And let the world do as il will.
The man who whhplentg s honed, '
k alh little to ask tor his name;
But he who though humble is upiighf,
Shall hve in the annals ol Fame
The, vicious may mock at his mem'iy,
But ages will think on hnu still;
.Then strive to be honest a;iu happy, '
Ami let the world do as it vi ill.

C unt Dif uoi ,'i.te .jmed at iane,
and it is u cui ous iilUMrati.ni ul' our it
marks ttiat this hero oi htorv was (i:ly in
in 7-"iu car. In one sense it mav be sa-d
hw was the Iwnneroi's right hand, for Na
o;o.in won ln bat'ies b) his guard ai d ins
arnlien , and D.ouot was the general of the
artillery of u.e uaid. Phis was the ter
rific weapon so tremendously vieid-d bv
Drouot, ol which ihe Hashes portended the
late of empires and the fall of kingdoms far
more tru -y ;hau ever did tho fiery tad ol a
comet. In single minded honesty, staunci.
t'idejity, and unimpeachable virtue, the
Count had no superior, and hut verv lew e- j
q i.iis, in all tint band ol heroes who raised
tl.e E.npcror to his throne of glory. I:,
ins personal habits ho was most singular.
H a Frenchman and a soldier, in the
midst of the imperial slafl, and under .the!
reign ofiTapoieon was actually a religious !
character, and did not scruple to avow the j
fact. He even carried about with him a
small Bible the only one, probably, that !
was ever to bo found in tho baggags of the j
grand army, except that placed by Napo- J
Icon in the mythological class of his travel- j
ling libiarv and this it wa one of his chief
delights to read. When ordered to the
front, it was usually at the most critical
point of the flold, and at the most hazardous
moment of ihe day ; and on these occasions
he is said to have always dressed himself
m a certain o d coat, dismounted and ad
vanced on foot in the midst of his guns, and
il did Intppcntha'. throughout all his perils,
he never received a wound.
Few readers wiil require to be reminded
how often he and his cannoniers decided
the fate of a well-fought field. Those 50
or GO guns, described by eye witnesses as
seeming to be actually discharged as they
gallopped along, swept away the just relics
of Russian obstinacy or Austrian chivalry,
and terminated the carnage of the day. In
the manipulation and direction of his pieces
Drouot was unrivalled. Once, at the pas.
sr-ge of the Elbe, in 1813, the Emperor,
observing the enemy on the oposite bank
called out hastily for " a hundred pieces of
cannon !' The general was at his side in
a moment, with the guns in position, but
so impatient was the Emperor for success;
that on the effect of tho fire not being so
immediate as he expected, he jumped off
! his horve, look hold rf Drcu'H'g car?, and
shook him sfund'y. The general bore the
peratiori w ith ureal patience, and then d -tid
the Emperor to place the gun better
a challenge which Napoleon waived wi:h
ihe laugh of a pacilied child. When re
verses at length ca.:e, and the creatures ol
the Emperors bounty fell off. from him on
tvery side. Drouot still slood by his master,
md abandoned him not. Etti omnes, ego

Grand Imprest meat in Iron Munvfuc:
lure The last Railroad Journal says
Tin m.tcnii ery ol m. st of the fu ri:a-es f
reeled within the year pist is operated by
waser power; but by the recent mimduc
t:oti of certain icnporunents, in which steam
power has a decided advantageous thought
it wiil generally be adopted i:i preferenence.
At Jicl;on's furnacp, at Westp.it, Mas,
steam power is employed, and, the advan
tages thereof together uiih those ol ihe im
provements referred m, are such that the
cost of manufacture has been reduced near
ly 40 per cent.
A flu d is placed within the furnace
chimney or funnel, and extends neatly to
lite lop ; and by this flue the hoi gas and
Miioke is returned ami brought down to
the md ! the steam boiier faruaee, where
ii pr.sj.es .through a perforated iron p atf
whin il comes in contact with aiuinspt-nc

iuee, and drives a null besides.
Another improvement has been project
ed by a gentleman connected with the iron
business in Massachusetts, bv which this
hot gas Iro n tne furnace is first passed
through a series of chambers, enclosed
ovens liiled with .d which is thereby
perleeliy charred, the gas being afterward'
parsed to the engine luniac; mixed with
air and ignited, produces an intense flame.
The wood is thus converted o charcoal
without expense, and the pyiuligenous acid
pjodnced in process, is ordinarily sullicient
to pay tiie entire first cost of ihe wood;
thus furnishing charcoal for the Iron fur
nace free of expense.
Wouldn't csiarry a Mechanic.
A joung man ct.mmenced visiting a
young woman, & she appeared well plfased.
! One evening he c-lled when it was quit
late, which ltd the girl to enquire where
he had been.
4 1 had to work to-night,' he replied
'Do you work for a living?' enquired
the astonished girl.
Cert liuly, replied the young rr.an ;
' I'm a mechanic
My brother does'nt work, and I dislike
j the name ol a mucanic, and she turned up
her pretty nose.
That was tho last time the mechanic vi
sited the young woman. He is now h weal
ihy man, and has one of the best ol women
for his wife. The young lady who dis
I ked the name of a mechanic, is now the
wife of a miserable tool a regular vagrant
about grorgshops and she, poor and mis
erable girl, is obliged to take in washing
in order to support herself and children.
Ye who dislike the name of a mechanic,
whosa brothers do nothing but loaf and
dress beware how you treat young men
who work-for a living. Far belter discard
a well fed pauper, with all his rings, jew
elry, br?zn faccdness, and pomposity, and
take to your affections the calous handed
intelligent and iudustrious mechanic.
Thousands have bitterly regretted the fol
ly, who have turned their backs on honest
,ndustry. A few years of bitter experi
ence taught them a severe lesson. In this
country, no man or woman shoufd be res
pected, in our way of thinking, who will
not work bodily or mentally, and who curl
their hps with scorn when introduced to a
hard working man.
From the Xew Oileeans Picayune. June 25.
Later from the Army of Gen.
The steamship Palmetto, Capt Sinnh,
arrived last rveniuj from Vera Cruz, hav
in sailled thenre on thp 18h inst. She
touched Tampteo on the 20lh and Brazos
Santiago on the 21 inst.
Although we are rot in possession of let
ters from Mr Kendall, we have adviee9 up
on which we place every reliance as to the
movements of Ge?i Scott. An express
from Pucbla, by the route of Cordova, had
atrited at Vera Cruz, announcing that
General Scott commenced his march upon
the cny of Mexico on the 10h inst.
We hear not a word more in regard to
the overtures for peace aaid to have been
made to Gen Seoi. That he marched on
the lCili wc have no doubt.
Another express bad anived at VeraCruz
fnon JuLipa, which announce that all the
sick had 'eft there on the 15th inst. for
Perote, under a small escort. -Col. Cht'ds
was to leave on the following day with
all the garrison. Gen Shields would ac
company him. The road between Ja'apa
and Puehla 19 represented as free !iou
guerilla panics of any kind.
About one thousand troop left Vera
Cn.z on the 17ih instant. unCer the com
mand of Maj Gen Pillow, to join the army
of (Jen Scott.
The Spanish renegade named Li Vega,
who lately repaired to V ru Cruz'tn com
pany with the verncmu Col Maia fiim
this cny, is represented to us as already in
command ol a strong guerrilla pany.
Sar. la Annaatili remains in power. Hi
resignation we pc sume wast withdrawn;
for ii is 111.1ma.ed that a mjruy of Con
gres was anxious to rcepl it. His vdmm
istration, in coasquence of Hi? feeling in
Congrtss. has entirely changed its policy
and thrown us elf into the arms of tne pir
ros. On great section i the puros. Low

the adherents of Gomez Farias and Gen.
Almoute still continue their opposition to
the Admiiiisiraliof. Senor Rejon, the for
mer friend of Farias, is said 10 be ihe
main support of Sania Anna's Administra
tion, although he holds no public oflice
(le is denounced as a man without princi
ple, a irucklet, &c.
It 19 lepresented that opinons were ne
ver more divided in the capital than at pre
sent. No parly seems to have decided
upon what course to lake. At one time
the puros 3nd lite moderados appear in
clined to unite upon a dissolution of Con
gress, and leave every thing in the hands
oi an'.a Anna; and then again ihe puros
talk of recalling the absent members of
their party, and of having a w orking ma
joriiy to catry their mcasuies. In the
mean lime a quorum of Congress cannot
often be collected. If we can give no in
telligible account of the designs of parties
and the Government, it it because such con
fusion and anarchy never before existed in
the city of Mexico, by the admis ton of all.
An important financial measures of A
naya's administration has been summarily
abrogated by Santa Anna, in deference, as
he says, to public opinion. 'Phis has led
to the resignation of Senor Baranda. who
was not consulted as to the repeal of the
measure. Senor Lafragua was then norm
nated in his place as a head ot the Slate
Depaitment, but this appointment gave dis.
satisfaction to the puros,. remonstrated a
gainst it. The result was not known.
Gen Almonte was sull in prison, nor
are we able 10 learn any thing more defi
nite as to the nature of offence, his trial
not having yet come on.
The Slate of Chihuahua voted unani
mously .'or Geo Santa Anna for President.
This is the only additional Stale tue vote
if which is given in the paper before us
The votes were to be opened on the 15tn
of the present month. Our impression is
that Congress will have to make ctioics be
'ween the two highest candidates, as no
one will probably receive a majority of all
the votes. On various occasions Con
grest has displayed great respect, for Gen.
Herrera, which' leads to the opinion that
he will be chosen.
Vie find no mention made of the meas
ures taken for the defence of the capital.
The papers say that Gen. Scott pretended
to his troops thai they would march into
Mexico 15 U instant, but that this -was a .
mere boast in order to keep up the spirit!"
of his men; thai he was in no condition to
mote, lacking reinforcements.
Letters from Pucbla to tt.e capital repre
sent Gens Scott and Worth as saying that
if Santa Anna has chtrge of ihe defence of
the city of Mexico, they will be able to
tfke it with the loss of 2 or 3 hundred
men only; but that if Bravo or Valencia
command, ti will cost ihem more dearly.-
The RepubUcano derides this gossip, though
it sounds very natural to us.
The Government is urged by letters
from Puebla and its vicinity 10 fall upon
Scott, now he is weak, and crush htm.
They say he has really but a little over
5000 men though he pretends to have 7
000 They seem 'o dread lesi Gen Tay
lor should proceed to join Gen Scoit.
We find in ihe Jiepublicnno of the 7tU
inst. 1 long tiespttch Irom o e Secretary of
ar 10 Gn Scott, dated the 30ih of April.
It nforu s hi m hat that by the end of June
the President suppose GenScott will nave
twenty, ana Geu Taylor ten thousand men
under their respective commanus. It asks
(or the veiws of Geu Scott on various ques
tions suggested and gives him directions

Siates. Tne liepu licano regards this 1st

Bragging. Heir is about as cote a
specimm of bragging, which resulted in
the nonplus of one of the parties, as vte
have beard of late:
'I understood, Mr Jones, that you can
turn any thing neater than any man in this
town. , -
Yes, Mr Smith, said so."
"Well, Mr J01.es, 1 dont like to brag,
but there is no live man on earth that can
turrv a thing as well as 1 can whittle it."
Poh. nonsense, Mr Smith, talk about
your whiihngjwhatcan you whittle as well
as 1 turn it?"
"Anything, anything. Mr Jonet-. Just
name the article that 1 can't whittle belter
than you can turn, and I will give you a
V if I don't do 11 to ihe satisfaction of all
these gentleman present. "
"Well. Mr Smith, suppose we take two
grind stones, just for trial; you may whittle
and 1 will turn."
Mr Smith slid.
