They, to be sure, will fight; for a brother jockey , whether he is right or wrong ; jet they expect him to fight for them on the int similar occasion ; but this kind-hearted nhmleould anticipate no such reciprocity.

' VALLEY OF THE MISSISSIPPI. -.The balance of political power in this country, will soon become firmly fixed west of the Alleghany mountains. The influx of population is so rapid, and the ex. tent and fertility of the soil so great, that the destinies of this country will shortly be determined by the voice of the people of the Vallev of the Mississippi. This stupend. ous jcgion is pronounced by an erudite for eigner, the most magnificent dwelling place prepared bynhe Almightyforman's aboder Yet even at the present day, comparatively speaking, it is a mighty desert, only a stu. pendous moral waste. The geographical extent of this Valley u vast, and the num ber and size of the rivers which irrigate its soil, almost exceed computation. The mo ral culture which should be diffused there, is importanat in a ratio proportioned to its boundless necessities. But few persons are a wureartM.MExtenriifTie- Mississippi Valley exceeds that otSPrance more than six times, embracing a u does over a mill ion and a half sauare miles. Its resources and dimensions fit it for sustaining a pqpt I lation of much beyond the present number of people who Inhabit burope. jThe rivers which fertilize ' its bosoms are scacelv equalled in the old worlds Tlio Mississip. pi alone traverses a section ol country 2500 miles in length, while 500 miles from its mouth, ahins of great burden float Upon its bosotnv Fifty .seven long streams act as tributaries, and help to swell the waters the Father of Rivers. The Missouri ex. ceeds 2000 miles in length, the Arkansas 300, and the Red River 1000. All the va ricties of soil and vegetable productions and temperature of Europe, are found io this almost boundless valley, while fertility and sterility are diffused alike with a pro. dignl hand. The epread of education, and of moral and religious culture in this vast region, is important in proportion to the stupendous influence which its inhabitants are destined to wield in the Union. The tone of society there roust be regulated by tho education which its people receive. while the virtue which chastens, while it elevates the man , must be determintsf by the exertions made by the friends of reli gious aud moral cultb re. The school mas. ter, tho philanthropist, and , ihe-Christian, should look upon this vast field of enter. prwe with eyes of peculiar favor. It pos sesses all- the original elements of vice and virtue which, as they predominate, will di rectly retard or elevate the character of this country.

The following story is from the English Monthly Magazine, and may be depended upon as accurate. . A party of a ship's crew bemg sent ashore on a part of tho coast of India, or the purpose of cutting wood for the ship, one of tho men.havio gstrayed from the rest, was greatly frightened by the appearance of a large lioness, Who made towards him ; she laid down at his feet and looked very earnestly, first at him and then at a tree a littleistanceonvAlterTBpBatingher ooks several times, she arose and proceed. ed on towards the tree, looking back seve. ral times, seemingly wishing the man to follow her; which he did ; And Upon com- ing up to the tree, he looked up and per. ceived a huge baboon with two young cubs in her arms, which he supposed were . the ioness s, as she crouched down like a cat, and seemed to eye them very steadfastly j upon which, the man being afraid to as cend the tree, bethoght himself to cut the tree down ; and having his axe with him, he set to work, when the lioness seemed more attentive to what he was doing, upon the falling of the tree, she sprang forward on the baboon, and tore him in pieces, she then licked the cubs over and over again ; , after which she returned to the man, who waspreatlv frightened, at seeing her in such a rage with the baboon, bu she came and fawned round him, rubbing her head against him in great fondness : and which seemed to show her gratitude for the ser. vice which he had done her ; she went to the cubs, and taking one of them up in her mouth, went away with it,- and returning soon afterwards for the ; other, she went away with that also ( the man made the best of his wayoflTto the shore, where he was taken aboard and did not get rid of his fright foi some time after.

A, OF THE NORTH. , , TEMPERANCE CELEBRATION. According to announcement, the great New York Temperance Mass Jubilee took place yesterday. The weather, like the cause, was, from dawn to sunset, full of heaven sown joyousness and serenity; and the great moral exhibition of thousands of our fellow citizens, as they passed through the principal' Streets and Avenues of our J (Jity, in the brotherhood of peace and the vindication of mind in its consciousness of nobility, was such as has never before been among us, one which has undoubtedly shed a gleam of hope around many a hither des- olate fire side. The-deputarions from- abroad - wero ou- mcrous and respectable, and the banners bore some beautiful illustrations of their de cision and principles of action.. Baltimore was most happily represented; and her champions in the cause added much to the encct; as missionaries i rromttar fnigtst be fairly termed the Parent Society. Boston deputed her " Pilgrims" to tho Mecca of Temperance among the most energetic of the Droud confederacy: .and Newark , urook lin and Williamsburg sent living "assuran ces of their perfect though youthful maturi ty in the causo. liiii the addresses were the grand clima. teric of the day s enjoyments ; that of the Orator of the day, T.

It is not irrevalent to add, that this was the first Temperance Mass Jubilee we have had. May the Universe hail its centenary recurrence JV. Y. Tribune A FRAGMENT THE CONTRAST. Death was abroad in the land. He sought tho dwelling of rank and station, and laid his icy hand upon the lord of the mansion. A burning fever was on his brow a wasting disease was at his heart. His beloved wife was at bis bedside to bathe his aching bead, and share his grief and sorrow bis mother called back ber watchful care, and the fountains of mutual tenderness were again broken up. Broth, era and sisters watching over- him with anxious tear neighbors and friends gath. ered round to anticipate every want .. The Minister was there to speak of eternal things, and open to lira Cm brighlTglories of another' world. Christians were listen, ing to the dying accents of his lips, yea, they travelled with hisdeparting spirit even down to the gates of death J nor did they leave him here.' They would honor the cold clay with every attention all were anxious to aid the last sad ceremony huma. nity claim. Twaswcll. But death entered a humble dwelling the abode of poverty. A female form was suffering pain and disease which was soon to close her earthly career. , There was no mother to wipe away her tears, or give her consolation ; no brother or sister to sympathise in her pains and sorrows J no kind friend to supply her wants. aTlre Min. biter came not to teach her benighted soul the way to eternal life, though her Divine Master preached the Gospel to the poor ' Christians came not to pray with the dy. ing sinner, and talk of tho love of Christ, the example of their Saviour who " went about doing good." Woman tender heart ed woman regarded her s a frail sister, beyond the pale of sympathy, forgetting the kindness of that blessed Lord, whose compassion would not condemn, but said umo the gully, ' go thy way and sin no more.' She had not even a Bible to shed a ray of light on that dark hour of her existence but in the silence of midnight, when- left to meditate on her own wretchedness elte prayed. Yes she felt that she was a sinner, and looked to God Tor aid, for truly she felt that " the help of man was vain. She died. The rich and the great came not to her burial ; but the poor of the world bore her to the grave, and there, without a tear, committed " dust unto dust," and no stone will ever tell her resting place. BE SOMETHING. Tt is the duty of everyone to take some part as actor on the stage of life. Some seem to think' they can vegetate, as it were without being any thing in particular. Man was not made to rust out his life. It is ex peeled that he should " act well his part1' He must be something. He has a work to perform, which it is his duty to attend to. We arc not placed here to grow up, pass through tho various stages of life, and then die, without having done any thing for the benefit of the human race. It is a princi ple in the creed of the Muhammetnns that every one' should havp a Jrade. Isa man to be brought up in idleness 'Is he to live upon the wealth which hia ancesters have acquired by hard laboi and frugal industry T Is he placed here to pass through life like an automaton? flas lie nothing to penormas a citizen ol the world T JJoes he owe nothing to his country as an inha. bitantf A mao who does nothing is a mere cipher. He docs not fulfil the obligation for which he was sent into the world, and when he dies he has not finished the work given him to do. He is a tncre blank in creation. Some are born with riches and honors upon their heads. But does h follow that tbey nave nothing to do in their earcer-th rough UieJ Thej-ereertain duties forevery one to perform. He tome- thing. Don't live like a hermit, and die like u hermit. See that young man, no matter what are his engagements, if he has no particular bu siness" to pursue he" will" never accompluh much. Perhaps ho ho 8 a futher abundant ly able to support him. Perhaps that fath ernas labored hard to obtain a compe. tence which is sufficient for his sons to live inidTcm'ssr world with any degree of self-complacency squandering away the money which their' father hai earned by hard labor? No! No one who has the proper feeling of a citizen, who wishes to bo ranked among the useful members of society, would live such a life. Be something don't be a drone. You may rely upon your present possessions, or on your future prospects, but those riches may fly away, or other hopes may be blighted, and if you have no place of your own, in such a case, ten tOone yOa find your path beset with thorns. Want may come upon you ere you are aware of it -anil ImvliifT nn nrnff't.-siiVn' vnu fifirl vmir. nc-if To any thingbut aFenvmuie situation: It is therefore imiiortant that you should be something. Don't depend upon fortune, for site is a he kle support, wmeli eft when you lean upon her with the greatest contiocQcc. A rust . to. your own exer i rr tions. Be something, - Pursue thaHroeation for which you ore fitted by nature ; pursue it faithfully and dillgemlyYbu1iave a part to act', and the honor in performing that part depends upon yourself. It is sicken ing to one to see a parcel of idle boys hang ing round a fathei, spending tho money which he has earned by his industry, with. out attempting to do any thing for them. selves. Be somellung, should bo their mot. to. Even' one is capable of learning some art, trade, or mystery," nnd can earn a competency for himself, lie should be something, and not bring down the gray hairs of hi father with sorrow to die grave. He should learn to depend upon himself. Idle boys living upon a parent, without anv profession, or. without any employment, are illy qualified for good members of society. And we regret to say it is too often the case that it is the parent's fault that tbev are thus Drougnt up. , They should be ta tight to be something, to know how to .pro vide for themselves" in case of necessity, to act well their part.'and they wili Jeap the honor which therein lies. , . , i ' ' Thankfulness keeps the mercy which ingratitude forrcits.'

Be virtuous; govern your passions; restrain your appetite. Avoid excess and high seasoned food, eat slowly, and chew your food well that it may do you good service Do not eat to satiety. Break, fhst betimes : it is not wholesome to go out fasting. You never take a horse out unlit (.nature is satisfied : so should it be with thyself. Make a hearty meal about noon, and cat plain meat only ; avoid salt and tainted meats those who eat them often have pale complexions and. slow pulse, and are full of corrupted humors. Sup betimes and sparingly ; let your meat be neither too much nor too little cooked. Sleep not untit two hours after eating. Begin your meals with a little tea, and wash your mouth with a cup of it afterwards. .Be very moderate in ;h nf all plonanrga W arngfl ; for alt excess weakens the spirits. Walk not too long at once ; stand not for hours in one posture, nor lie longer than necessary. In winter keep not yourself too hot, nor in summer too cold. Immediately after you awake, rub your breast where the heart lies with tho palm of your hand. Avoid a stream or draughtof wind as you would as arrow ! Coining out of a warm bath or after'hard labor, do not expose your body to cold. If in the spring there should be two or three hot days, do not be in haste to put off your winter clothes. It is unwhole some to fan yourself during perspiration.' Wash your mouth with lukewarm water before you go to rest, and rub the soles of your feet warm.
