TheXew I'uglaud Diadem givesits rea
ders the following beautiful stanzas, which
were feus;estel hy hearing read an extract
of n letter from Captain Cliase, giving an
account of the sickness and death of hi
brother-in-law, Air. lirown Owen, who
died on his passage to California. We
have hut seldom met any thing so painfully
interesting in every line, and it will he
read with "tearveves" by many w ho have
lost brothers, fathers, husbands or vons ou
their way to, or after having reached, the
laud of gold and of graves.
Lay up nearer, brother, nearer,
For my limbs are grow ing cold,
And thy presence scenicth dearer,
When thy arms around me fold;
I am dying, brother, dying,
Soon ye'll miss nie in your berth,
For my form will noon be lying,
Weath the ocean's briny surf.
tlearken to me, brother, hearken,
I have something I wotdd say,
Kre the veil my vision darken.
And 1 go from hence away;
1 am going, surely going,
Jlut my hopes in (Jod is strong,
I am w illing, brother, knowing
That he doeth nothing wrong.
Tell my father w hen you greet him,
That in death I prayed for him,
Frayed that I may one day meet him,
In a world that's free from sin !
Tell my mother, ((.Jod assist her t
Now that she is grow ing old.)
Tell her child would glad have kissed her,
When his lips grew pale and cold.
Listen, brother, catch each whisper,
'Tis my wife I'd speak of now,
Tell, oh tell her, how 1 missed her,
When the fever burned my brow,
Tell her, brother, closely listen,
Don't forget a single word,
That in death my eyes did glisten,
With the tears her memory stirred.
Tell her she must kiss my children,
Like the kiss I last impressed;
Hold them as when last 1 held them,
Folded closely to my breast;
('ive them early to their Maker,
Putting all their trust in (Jod,
And He never will forsake her,
For He's said so in His Word.
() my children! Heaven bless thein!
They were ail my life to me;
Would I could once more caress them,
Fre I sink beneath the sea;
'Tw as for tl.em I crossed the ocean,
What my hopes wen I'll not tell,
Jlut 1 have gained an orphan's portion,
Vet He doeth all things w ell.
Tell my sisters I remember,
Fvery kindly parting word,
And my heart has been kept tender,
lly the thoughts their mem'ry stirred;
Tell them I ne'er reached the haven
Where I sought the "precious dust."
Jlut I have gained a port called Heaven,
Where the gold w ill never rust.
Frgc them to secure 'in entrance,
For they'll find their brother there;
Faith in Jesus, and repentance
Will secure for each a share
Hark! I hear my favour speaking,
'Tis, 1 know his voice so well,
When I am gone, Oh don't be weeping,
Urother, here's my last farewell.
"To Joe Slansbury Sir, I send you the
baby, which you will please to take good
care ofaud bring up right, so that it may
turn out to be a better man than his daddy.
Oh Jogeph! what a tdy old rake you are!
wIki would think that such a steady, so
ber old spindle shanks could be such a tar-riug-dowu
sinner? The child is yours.
You may swear to that. You deceived me
shamefully, Joseph letting on to be a wid

some kind of a story about the baby.

Mr. P tail sbiirysras In vhc basement kitch
en quietly eating his supper, and little im
agining what a' storm was brewing over
his head. The door of the kitchen was
violently thrown open, and Mrs. S.'s voice
called out "Stansbury, come up here, you
villain here's a mess for you !" The as
tonished Staushury hastily wiped his mouth
and obeyed the summons. "Don't you
want to see .Nancy? the heart-broken IS all
ey !" cried Mrs Statisbury, when her guilty
husband hobbled up into the room. "Nan
cy! what Nancy's that ?" said the sly old
rogue in well feigned perplexity. "Why
Nancy, the mother of this baby that's been
hung up at yourdoor, Mr. .Stanshury. Oh,
you look mighty innocent; hutjust read that
letter, and then look in that basket. Don't
be afraid, it won't bite, it's got no teeth,
poor thing! you'll know it for, as your
hussy says, it is just like you all over.

And in less than five niinutetJ, Airs Stans

half the inhabitants of the court, to witness
the proccrs of unwrapping the baby. Anx
ious expectation sat on every countenance,
as thejealons lady tore aw ay rag after rag
from the body of the foundling, the vigorous
movements of which astonished everybody.
"It is full of the devil already," said Airs. ,S.,
"that shows it is his you'll soon see that
it is like him in everything." At last, all
the swaddling clothes being removed, out
jumhed the baby and made its escape
through the open door.

she felt something alive and kieking, but so
enveloped iu rags that no discovery could
be made without unw rapping the object.
A piece of paper, folded like a letter lay by
the side of the animated bundle. Airs.

the billet. It was addressed to her hus

The use of tar and feathers, in the pun
ishment of crime, is one of great antiquity.
Richard L, in his voyage to the holy land,
ordained thus: If any one is cotmrtcd of
theft, let his head be shaved, like Cham
pion's: let melted pitch he poured upon it,
aud feathers shaken over it, that he may be
known: aud let him be put ashore at the
first land to which the ship approaches.

The above Table was furnished to the Iltldgh Register, by Col. (;;o. Little, the
U. Marshal for Xorth Carolina; it is, therefore, correct, and we would advise our
friends to preserve it for future reference. The F ree and Slave Xegro population, it
may be of some interest to know, hut, at the same time, w c w ould admonish the hum
bugs w ho w ish to "change the basis," that as the Western part of the .State progresses

harped on by such humbugs Y.uccy county sends, may prove troublesome in the end. ,

We detest the "Raleigh clique" as much as "old Remus" detested the Legislature
for not making another Judiciary District aud him Judge, but we also disdain the low,
and unprincipled means which some men will use to obtain notoriety. The Democratic
party have lost much by their asceudaucy iu tha last Legislature; had that body been
composed of the right stuff, all might have boen well but, aud wc think, that should
end the chapter.
A Vulgarism. One of the most popular vulgarisms of the day is embodied in the
word "patronage." Wc have always been at a loss to understand this term as incor
porated with the language of the times. 11 a man buys a pair of boots, getting the full
value of his money, Iu calls himself the "patron" of tne manufacturer. 1'lie purchaser
of six cent's worth of tobacco, or a pennyworth of tape, is a "patron," and looks upon
those ou whom he lavished this " patronage " with a condescending eye, as if he led,
clothed, and sheltered them One s patron, regarding the term iu iis true light, is a per
son who gives oue alms, l'atrouage, iu short, is charitable protection. It is no patron
age to give money for its full value. The term, as now most generally employed, is
one of a most servile sycophautic character, aud it should be expunged Irom the mod
77ioy"7f.-To think is the proper use of mind, and it is a-jtouishiug to find how little
this tritc'trufh is recognised. To think, however, is neither common nor to unhabitu
ated rniii Is ?asy. The cfi'ort is to many painful, aud the habit one of slow growth.
Neither is it so swift a process as seems to be g uerally supposed. . glauce of the
mind may be swift, if it be measured geographically, by thy rapidity with which the
imagining powers of the mind may go 'from the remotest point lo auother equally re
mote; hut the processes of thought are slow. Newton stood for hours wi:h the prism
i:i his hand, w hen his theory of colors first germinated in his mind; and Kepler u as
manv years in working out his great discovery of the principle which governs the n:o
