Jonathan's visit to Boston.
Did you ever go down to old Boston?
I'll be darn'd but you ought to be there -For
of all the up and down places
This out does the whole, I declare.
The market's the first thing that I see,
Why lis longer than grandaddy's barn;
As neat by the powers of Moll Kelly
Not a bit of dirt round the consarn.
I found myself next in State-street,
There's houses as bir as the hills,
And money, by jingoes, what bags on'f,
And long coaters going to kill.
The Post Office next was the curer,
I sniggers, what up and down stone,
There's lawyers and brokers and jawers,
And shavers in plenty, by gum.
I peeps my nose up round the corner,
My eyes were as big as you please,
JUy head was completely capsizzled
At the sight of the new fashioned sleeves.
All strange apprehensions being summonM,
By zounds! it will thunder now soon,
See the clouds of big sleeves arising,
I'll be darn'd if it aint dark at noon.
I swaggers, this place is a buster,
In the middle of streets you must go,
For if they can't have the whole side-walk,
They look kind of sour, by Joe.
And now hurra for the country,
By George, 'twont do to stop here.
If they'll just disaIluviate the fashions,
Til not fail to see them next year. Jonathan.
To a little short Lady.
When any thing abounds, we find
That nobody will have it:
But when there's little of the kind,
Dont all the people crave it?
If wives are evils, as tis known
And wofully confess'd,
The man who's wise will surely own
A little one is best.
The god of love's a little wight,
And beautiful as thought;
Thou too art II I lie, fair as light;
And every thing in short.
0, happy girl, I -think thee so,
For mark the poet's song
"iMan wants but little here below,
Nor wants that little lon"
(CPThe following direction was on a letter
received at the Boston Post Office:
?uW l VirSinia wenJ your way,
With special care make no delay,
1o French Creek P. 0. there vou stay
in Lewis county.
And Uncle Sam shall have his pay,
(The postage bounty.)
So speed your flight, swift as the wind;
Lorenzo Bunten there you'll find,
At least, lor one, I am inclin'd
To think you will
B not, he's out some hills behind,
At Union Mill."
Distressing Case. A female, who
gave hor name Mary Cloz, was recently
brought up before the Mayor of Philadel
phia by a watch
' 7 " UIMIV-U 1 11(11 1U
had arrested her tho previous night near
the theatre, for her disorderly conduct
and blasphemous language. She had
just come out of the theatre, in company
vntii a young man, with whom she was
arm-in-arm, and, upon some unknown
provocation, a quarrel ensued between
them, she being in liquor, which ended
in her capture by the watch. When ar
rested, she was splendidly attired, her
dress of the most cosily and fashionable
order,-literally hung with golden chains,
and sparkling with jewels, and the finders
of cither hand thickly studded with rinrs.
After arriving at the watch house, a dis
guise was brought her by the youri" man
with whom she first appeared, and a
friend or two. The change consisted of
a blue calash, and fine brown cloth cloak
After the hearing before his honor, she
was fined, and security required for her
future good behavior, at which her para
mour gave his name. Upon enquiry, it
was ascertained that she arrived in that
city a few weeks since, from the cast in
company with ao affectionate husband
the connexions of both being of the first
respectability He being obliged to tra
vel to the south, upon business, chose ra
ther to enjoy the company of his beauti
ful anil seeming amiable and virtuous
wife, on his journey, than leave her be
hind. Upon arriving in Philadelphia,
she became fascinated with its appear
ance, and, though the young and favored
wife of an affectionate and indulgent hus
band, expressed a desire to remain in
the city, until his return from Baltimore,
t he place of his destination. Unused to
thwart her wishes, he acquiesced, and
securing a home for her tit the place they
lodged, a hotel of the first respectability,
and, trusting to her fidelity, took passage
for Baltimore, and left her. Since when
her fair fame has changed to one of foul
and black dishonor, and she is now on
the high road to infamy and ruin. She
left Philadelphia for New York, to avoid
a meeting with her injured partner.
OThe Hartford (Mil.) Republican
mentions a recent suit, brought by Eliza
Ward against Lee Magness, for a breach
of marriage promise, in which the plain
tiff recovered the amount of $1425, for
Emigrants. The New York Gazette
says: Up to the 1st of August a fraction
over 33,000 emigrants arrived at this port
from Europe this season by this time,
the number is increased to above 40,000!!
Rather more than this number had reach
ed, this season, Quebec and iMontreal,
many of whom find their way into the U.
States. If we add to the above the emi
grants that have arrived at Baltimore and
Philadelphia, and those which will yot ar
rive before the winter season, it will be
found that not much less than 200,000
persons have been added to our popula
tion the present season.
From the Hartford (Ct.) Times.
We have received the first number of
"the Evening and the Morning Star,"
published at Independence, Missouri.
It is edited by W. W. Phelps, and devo
ted to the cause of Monnonism. The
Star is published within 12 miles from
the western line of Missouri, 230 west of
the city of St. Louis, and about 1400
miles from Hartford. In that far region
of the west, near the base of the Rockv
Mountains, this community of religionists
have located themselves, in the deluded,
but we doubt not honest belief of the
truth of the tenets inculcated in the Book
of Mormon. Of that book and its doc
trines we are not sufficiently informed to
give the peculiarities. The following
extract from the Star may assist to en
lighten those wiser than ourselves. It is
all darkness to us.
" The Boole of Mormon. There are not a few
honest enquiring persons, who wish to learn the
truth of the Hook of Mormon. To put them in
possession of such testimony as may lead to truth
is our duty, and, after stating that this book con
tains a record of that branch of the tribe of Jo
seph which was separated from his brethren, ac
cording to the 49th chapter of Genesis, we say
read the 37th chapter of Ezekiel, and if the Stick
of Kpl iraim therein mentioned does not mean
the Book of Mormon, what does it mean? Isaiah
has information which, if lightly understood,
ought to wake the world; the Lord says he will
proceed to do a marvellous work amon- this
people, and who dare dispute the Lord?
Independent of Bible proof on the subject be
fore us, we have the remains of towns, ritipe.
forts, &c. which silently declare to the beholder:
We were built by a civilized people.
As man cannot trust in mat), we request all
that wish the truth on this great subject, to en
quire of the Lord who will always answer the
pure in heart.
From the Crawford (Pa.) Messenger.
Married, on Tuesday last, by T. At
kinson, Esq. Mr. Jesse Glancij, of Sads
bury, to Mrs. Dolly Trace, of Vernon.
The parties in this case, a hale hearty widow,
er, and a still sprightly, good looking widow,
politely called at our residence, for the benefit of
our official ser.vices. The hy menial knot; for
better for worse, being tied in our best way. we
took the freedom to ask "Pray, madam, how
many children had you by your first husband."
"Sixteen, Sir, thirteen of whom are still living "
"Very good!" -Well, Mr. G. how many had
you by your first wife?" "Fifteen, Sirfour
teen living." Admirable! Sparla would have
