His tallow serves to mike us light,
( fine assistant to the sight,)
His meat is rare, it's what we choose;
His hide is always guod for shoes.
His horns we use to make us combs:
Oil is extracted from his bones.
The ox we view with great delight,
And love to taste his tender tripei
His liver, too.it is cnnfessM,
Is excellent, if rightly dress'd.
His hair, when mix'd well with lime,
It plasters well on oak or pine,
His gall is used for a sprain,

And if applied, you'il find it so:
'Twill help the crippled man to go.
His paunch, the country woman, please;
It's often used to fetch their cheese,

It's not inferior to the calf.)
The tongue, that often roll'd the cud,
Combed his hair and lick'd the mud,
(We can't reproach it for a lie,)
It makes a most delicious pie.
The foot that wore the iron shoe,
Affords a juice that's good for glue:
The cabinet-makers like it well,
They glue the ir work to make it sell.

He knows his master and his crib;

Until his sweated body smoke.

TO THE PEOPLE OF THE U. S.
The undersigned proposes, as a future oc
cupation, to publish, semi-monthly, a bcap
newspaper, to be called
Should the Administration be sustained
in the present conllict, as his faith in the
people persuades him to believe, theie is
still much to be done to secure the advance
ment and perpetuity of pure principles in
our Government; and if perchance it shall
be defeated, there will be more occasion
for all honest efforts to prevent the mis
chiefs apprehended from the men who
may come into power.
To these objects the undersigned has
determined to devote the remnant of his
life; and he can think of no means thro'
which he can act so efficiently, as a news
paper cheap enough to be within the reach
of every man who is able to read. Raised
to labor on a larm, he has never ceased to
cheiish the interests of those who work
for a living; and, knowing them to be the
most virtuous and deserving portion of so
ciety, one ol the most cherished desires of
his heart is to see them aroused to the im
portance of giving more of their reading.
their thoughts, and ineir time, to the ai
fairs of Government. Yet, not to them
exclusively, but also to all other men, who
do not seek to obtain, through the laws,
advantages over their fellow men, he will
address himself in the proposed publica
tion. The main objects noticed in this pa
per will be as follows, viz:
1. Suffrage is the basis of free govern
ment, lie that cheats at elections is guilty
of the worst kind of treason, & should be
punished as a traitor. He who gives utter
ance to a falsehood, for the purpose ol
influencing a voter, is but' little better.
To denounce cheating, bribery, & false
hood, when detected, and suggest effective
preventatives, will be a leading object ol
the proposed paper. In this the under
signed does not intend to be any respectei
of parties; fpr the man who resorts to such
means for the accomplishment of political
ends, whatever he may call himself, is no
Democrat, and & an enemy to the people.
2. Abuses of nrivilee-e and rorrnntioni
have made much progress in the le - iIa -
o - 1 I
tivodeptrtmentof our Government, and
have occasionally shown themselves in
other departments. These, as. far as
known, will be denounced, by whatever
party they may be practised. In every
abuse of privilege, or undue exercise of
power, the individual committing it strikes
a blow at public virtue, the only lasting
basis of free institutions.
3. Principles of modern banking, & the
manner in which banks and public debts
operate upon the labor, trade, and property
of the community, are not well understood.
One of the chief objects of this paper will

cuss the proposed remedies for existing!
evils. Tins will involve an exposition o!
the nature and uses of money, together
with a history of the origin, progress and
euecis oi paper money in Europe and A-
To these will beadded;a notice of new
discoveries & inventions which promise to
be useful to mankind, as also of facts, ex
periments, & improvements which may be
instructive to the farmer & mechanic; a
summary of news, foreign &. domestic,
carefully compiled, constituting an accu
rate history of passing events; abstracts of
important public documents and miscel
laneous matter, selected &. original, in
structive and entertaining. In fine, the
!bj. ct is to furnish a newspaper which will
present to the farmer, planter, mechanic,
merchant, &. all other readers, the true in
terests of those who live by the cultivation
of the soil & other laborious occupations
involving the interests of all useful trades,
&: incite them always to regard those in
terests, in voting for public agents, to in
culcate that honesty and truth should be
the guide of every man in public as well as
private life; that a sacred regard for the
rights of property, as well as personal
rights, is essential to the happiness of man
in a slate of society; that it is only thro' a
fair ballot that we should look for the cor
rection of existing evils, & the prevention
of those we fear; &. that a true Democrat
should never think of revolution by force
until he finds himself deprived of the right
of suffrage, or the voice of the majority is
perseveringly stifled by fraud or force at
Though thoroughly Democratic in prin
ciple, this paper will not be made the ve
hicle of ordinary electioneering matter,
nor will it engage in or admit mere per
sonal controversies. It will not conceal
its preferences for men or parties; but will
seek to influence results only by appeals to
reason, and through the instrumentality of
fact and argument.
That a ttue Democrat ought never to
despair, is the first article in the under
signed's political creed. Man is capable
ol indefinite improvement in knowledge
& virtue. These are the basis of Democ
racy. If we know that he cannot reach
peifection, we know also that he may be
come belter than he is. Hope and faith
arc the motives of the Christian teacher.
They should be the stay and stimulus of
the Democrat. witn mm tney are
strengthened by knowledge; for he sees &
knows that man is advancing, and may be
made to advance more rapidly, in all those
acquirements which enable him to govern
himself. I f arrested by force or fraud to
day, he will resume his onward march to
morrow. Dy degress, the great mass of
men are becoming familiar with their
rights and conscious of their power; they
may become so well informed that none
will attempt to deceive them, and so deter
mined, that none will dare to assail them
bv force. To aid in the improvement of
man is the highest remaining ambition of
the undersigned. He has seen much of
the world, has had some experience in
public affairs, has witnessed much human
depravity, suffered some wrong, and met
with much to discourage exertions for the
good of his country and his race; but nev
er for a moment has he lost his faith in
man's high destiny, or relaxed his deter
mination to contribute to his advancement
under all discouragements. If he shall
reap no personal advantage from this
course, beyond a consciousness of doing
his duty, his children's children, and
myriads of human beings hereafter to live,
mav by his example and labors, however
humble and feeble, be made more intelli
gent and more happy. At any rate, in
ibis glorious hope he intends to labor,
live, and die. m
Who will aid him in this undertaking?

Jl Disgusting Ceremony. The Phila
delphia North American says, the follow
ing is a singular ceremony--tbc bdtcr
word would have been disgusting: "A
singular ceremony was performed the day
before yesterday at the Cemetery of Mont
martre, on occasion of the funeral of a
workman of one of the corporations called
the Compagnons du Devoir; when the
coffin was placed in the grave, one of the
mourners, who were ail compagnons,
went into it with a bottle of wine and two
glasses, and the hammer of the deceased,
with which the neck of the bottle was to
'be broken, it being against the rules of the
society to draw the cork. i he grave was
then covered with the pall. A few mo
menis afterward, one of ihe compagnons
struck the coffin three times with his cane,
and the man in the grave uttered plaintive
cries, which was responded to by those
round the grave. 1 his was the last adieu.
The pall feeing removed, the man who had
gone into the grave returned to his com
panions with the bottle with the neck
broken off, and two novices were invited
to drink with him, this being their draught
of initiation. The remainder of the wine
was then poured into the grave, which
was immediately closed up with earth in
the usual manner."
ivhite man sold. The South Caroli
na papers give the particulars of public sale
ofa white man named Keuben Brad bey,
which recently took place at Camden, in
conformity to a law of that State. It was
a case of bastardy, and he was not able to
enter into recognizance for the support of
the child. His wife bid him off for one
dollar, and, it was thought she got very
,badly cheated at that.
Newspaper Jokes- There is but too
much truth in the following paragraph,
cut from the Philadelphia Ledger:
"One of the standing jokes of the news

Sometimes there is too much truth in this
to make a jest of it we know, for instance,
an editor who published a paper to support
a certain cause and who was suppoiled
himself by the voluntary contributions of
those whose intersts he was laboring to
uphold. This unhappy person cuti.pLii.ed,
in one number of h:s paper, that be and
his wife had subsisted two weeks on bread
and molasses, and earnestly entreated his
friends to 'pony up,' or he should be
obliged to reduce his diet; and that, (he
suggested) might impair the vigor of his
intellect, and disable him from discharging
his duties in an energetic manner.

Jl Taluable Dog. The Baltimore

Street Theatre, while passing along the
street the other day, accidentally dropped
his pocket book, containing S50. When
he had proceeded some distance, he dis

his steps to search for it, when he met his

From Florida. We have been favored
with the perusal ofa letter from the head
quarters of the army in Florida, which
holds out the most encouraging prospects
for a termination of the Florida war.
The fii st conference of the Indians with
Gen. Armisted led to the terms which he
had to propose to them, to all off which
they assented, and which are to be pre
sented to the Government at Washington
by a deputation of chiefs. This depu
taiion are to come on this month. The
chiefs who have had interviews with
General Armisted appear to be anxious
for the settlement of the vexed question.
They want to retain a portion of the coun
try in Florida, but say, if the Government
orders otherwise, they will submit. Should
the present renewed prospects of peace,
under the auspices of General Armisted
and the brave officers and soldiers under
his command end in the fulfilment of our
wishes, we shall be rejoiced. Gen. A.
has been indefatigable in his exertions
since he took command of the Florida
army, and, if he succeed in terminating
the w ar, his country will not be ungrate
Egypt. MehemetAli has now a regu
lar army of 130,000 troops, commanded
mostly by Christian officers. Solyman
Pasha, whose name so often appears in the
papers, is a Frenchman, once an aid-decamp
of Marshal Ney. He has been of
great service to Mehemet by training
officers for his army. Mehemet has also
sent some young men to Paris, Vienna and
Loudon to be educated for artillery offi
cers. The effects of this effort to intro
duce into the Egyptian army the milhary
discipline and tactics of Christian Europe
have been very happy. Besides the re
sults, which Mehemet contemplated and
designed, viz. the greater unity and
strength of his government, the restoration
of order and law to Egypt, which previous
ly had been in a state of anarchy, and the
elevation of the Arab population to self
confidence, which is necessary to an inde
pendent people, are others which are still
more important. Mohammedan pride has
been humbled by the necessity under
which Mehemet found himself, of appoint
ing Christians to the highest offices in the
army, and employing them as master in
structors in all that belongs to an accom
plished soldier. They were thus taught
to respect and obey the very men, whom
they were accustomed to despise as infidel
dogs. The organization of the army has
also brought with it the sciences and the
arts; barracks must be created: clothing,
food, and medicine for the sick must be
provided. Accordingly, arsenals, work
shops, schools, &.c. have already sprung
into existence; and soon hospitals and all
that belongs to European civilization must
ftT'The New York Sun says that about
six o' clock yesterday morning, while it
was raining with considerable violence,
officer Taylor discovered lying on a stoop
at the corner of Chatham and Mulberry
streets, a bundle, which upon inspection
be found to consist of a piece of old quilt,
in w hich was wrapped a fine female infant,
a few hours old, and which appeared to
be perfectly well to do, except that it was
chilled by wet exposure. Mr. Taylor
took the child to the police office where it
was warmed, warm and dry clothing put
upon it, and nourishment given it, and was
finally removed to the alms house, wr.ere
it was properly disposed of and bids fair to
prosper despite the heartless attempts of
its monster mother to destroy it.
