Our attention is now; attracted to a ray of
light that glittora on llie apea of a bold and
nobIo"hcd7 located1- on thorteft of the
Speaker chair. It proceeds from that
wonderful nnn, who in his person combines
the agitatorVpoct, philosopher, statesman,
critic and oratorioHN Q. Adams. Wbo
that has seen him sitting beneath the cupo
la of the Hall, with tho rays of Tight gather
ins and glanrinz about his singularly po
lished head, but his likened him to ona of
the luminaries of tne age, shining and glit.
teringin the firmament of the Uoon. -There
he sits, hour after hour, and day af.
ter day, with untiring pationce, never nb
sent from his seat, nevervoting for an
adjournment, vigilant as the most zealous
member of the House, his ear ever on the
alert, himself always prepared to go at once
into the prnfundest questions of State, or
the minutest points of order. " What must
be his thoughts as he ponders upon the past,
in which he has played a part so coospicu
ous ? We look at him and mark his cold
and Uarful eye, nis stern and abstracted
gate, and. conjure up phantoms of other
scenes. We see him amid his festive and
splendid ha!U, . ycars.back, standing stiff
and awkward, and shaking a tall military
man by the hand, in whose honor the fete
was given, to commemorate the most splen.
did of America's victories. We see him
nflor wards the bitter foe of the same 1 mili
tary chieftain and the competitor with him
fur the highest office in the gift of a free
people. - We look upon a more than King,
who has filled every department of honor
in his native lani, still at Siis post ; ho who
was the President of millions now tho Ke.

House, with an Abolition petition in his
trembling hand, and anon lording it over the
wildest state of mhusiasm, by his indig

spoken to, unconNulted, never consulting
with others, be sits apart, wrapped fo reve
ries; and with his finger resting on his
nose, he permits his mind to' move like a
pendulum, stirring the hours of the pnst ,and
disturbing those of tho hidden ' future 5 or
probably he is writing, -his almost perpe

occasionally, on board our ships of war and

friendly relaUons between this country and
France upwards of 40 years ago. . Many
instances might beed illustrative of the

being twice takjn and retaken, and one
hundred and twqJayaat sea. I left Liver.
pool the 3d of , A touat, and on tho 13th of
Sept. being. IoDg.36, and lat 29. 1 was tak.
en by French sloop of-war and jn jmy
people taken out except Harry, one man,
and, a Doy of twelve years of age. an an.
prentice of minoi and manned 'with ten
Frenchmen and ordered for Cayenne. ' I
being determined to retake my ship, on first
uiauuvenug mesioop 01 war 10 oe f rencn,
loaded my pistols and hid them in a crate
of ware, which had I not done, I should
have lost them, for no less than three differ,
ent times were my trunks searched for
them, as waa tho cabin and all parts of the
ship, which they could come at j they found
my ammunition, but my pistols were sc.
cure: and such was their extreme caution.
that they would not allow any man to bo off
deck ; eat, drank and slept on deck. ' ' .
Finding that I could not obtain any ad.
vantage of them by getting them below, I
determined to attack) them openly, '""by day
light. . Therefore at about 4 o'clock, on the
fourth day after being taken, I secured my
pistols in my waistband, having previously
told Harry and my mnn my determination,
and directed them to have a couple of hand,
spikes where they could clap their hands
upon thenv jn an instant,- and when they
saw me begin, to some to my assistande.
The prize-master wna now asleep on the
weather hen coop, his mate at the wheel,
and the crew on different parts of the main
dock. Under these circumstances, I made
the attempt by first knocking down the
mate at the wheel ; tho rraster started bo
quick, that I could get but a very slight
stroke at him; upon which he drew his
dirk upon me, but I closedin with him, eal-
lied him out of the quarter rail, and threw
him overboard. But he caught by tho main
chalos and so escaped going into the water.
By this time, I had the remaining eight
upon me, t wo of whom Lknocked -backward
off the quarter deck, and Harry and
roy . man. coming, aft at Ibis time with hand
spikes, played their part among them, and
I soon got relieved. I then drew a pistol
and shot a black fello in the head, who
was coming at me with a broad.nxe ; tho
ball only cut him to the bone, and then
glanced, but it had an excellent effect, by
letting the rest know that I had pistols, of
which they had no idea. - By this time, the
mate, whom I first knocked down, had re
covered, nnd run down to his trunk, and
got a pistol, which ho fired at my man's
face, but tho. ball missed him.
The prize-masler, whom I hove over the
quarter, got in again and stabbed Harry in
the ide, but not so bad as to oblige him to
give up till we had conquered. In this situ
ation we had it pell-mell for about n quarter
of an hour, when we got them running,
and followed them on, knocking down the
hindmost,, two or three times around the
deck, when a part of them escaped below,
and the rest begged for mercy which we
granted on their delivering up their wea.
pons, which consisted of a discharged pis
hand-saw, dec. Wo then marched them
alt into the cabin, and brought them up,
one at a time, after strictly searching them,
and confined them down forward.'
Ten days after this daring action, Capt.
Whitney waa again captured by a priva
tcer schooner, from Gaudaloupe, who plun.
dered his ship of 8 or 10,000 sterling,

grown up children spread themselves "at
once to their new dimensions, and after a
preliminary flourish at home, the whole
family embarked for foreign travel. - They
remained buta fortnight in bngland, money
in that land walking often invisible. Ger
many seemed to the ship-chandler a " rub.
bishy"country, and Italy ' very small beer"
and after a short residence in Paris, that
gay capitol was pronounced the Paradise of
money s worth, and there tho Gogginsos
took up their abode. To the apprehension
of most of their acquaintance, Mr. Goggins
was in a speedy and fair way to return to
his blocks and his oakum, poorer for his
fortune. No stint seemed put upon the ex.
travagance of sons or daughters, and in
dress and equipage their separate displays
and establishments became the marvel of
Pari. In Goggins himself there was for a
while "no great chance" of exterior."' His
constitutional hardness of character seemed J
in no way disturbed or embelished by the
splendors he controlled. He gave way to
usages and.etiquette with patient facility,
bowed through the receptions at his first
parties with imperturbable propriety,' and
was voted stoliJ and wooden by the gay
world flaunting at bis expense, r

ing, then, the intermediate offices of larsc
agents and hommus d'affaires, he advertised

prices paid by millionaires. ; He advertised
in the same way for proposals to furnish
his house in the most sumptuous scale and
in the prevailing fashion, and by. dint of
sitting quietly at bis office, and compelling
every thing to reach him through the mcdi-
um of Loglish manuscript, he created a
palace fit lor an Emperor, by a fair , com
petition among the tradesmen and uphol.
sters, and at a cost by no means ruinous.
He advertised in the same way for a com.
potent man of taste to oversee tho embol.

tiling of its kind in Paris, and was looked
upon as the " folly" of tho ruined lessee.
With this ground work for display. Air.
Goggins turned his attention to the ways
and means of bulls and dinners, concerts
and breakfasts, and having acquired a name
for Urge expenditure, he profited consider,
ably by the emulation of cooks and purvey
ors for tho materiel, and privately made use
of the savor faire of a reduced count or two
who for a trifling consideration, willincly
undertook the manner of the entertainments.
He applied the same sagacious system of
commissariat to the supplying of tho mulli. j
la nous wants of his children, economising
at the same time that he enhanced tho luxu
ry of their Indigencies, and the Gogginses
soon began to excite other feelings , than
contempt. Their equipages, (the produc
tion of tho united taste of ruined spend
thrifts,) outshone the most sumptuous of
the embassies 5 their balls were of uncSi
more recherche than profuse. How they
should come by their elegance was a myste.
ry that did not lessen their consequence,
and the Goggins mounted to the difficult
eminence of Parisian the plain business
tact of a ship chandlor their mysterious
stepping stone. - - - - "
f erlmps wo should give more credit to
this faculty in Goggins. It is possible not
far removed from the genius of the great
financier or eminent State treasurer. It is
the power of coming directly at values and
ridding them of their V riders of gotting
for less, what others, for want of penctm.
lion, gel for more. I am inclined to think
that Goggins would have been quite as sue
ccssful in any other field of calculation, nnd

of the reasoning powers would go tofavor

Bcntlcy ' . Miscellany.- for' September,
contains among other things the following:
Anecdotal reminiscence of an English
missionary named Clark, who went out to
convert tho natives of India to Christianity,
but tailing 10 ins ctiorts, rcturuod in despair
to Calcutta. We give tho" rest of the an
ecdote in the writer's own- words :
One day our missionary learned, to his
great joy, that a Brahmin of the very first
rank had arrived in the metropolis. De.
tcrmined tj bring matters to an issue.
Clarke wrote to him and bwcd him to
meet him on n certain day, when he under,
took to convinco him (the Hindoo priest)
of the errors of his faith. To this die
Brahmin consented, and at the time op.
pointed tho heathen nnd the Christian
champion met to discuss, in the presence
of several wi mosses, the merits of their
respective creeds. '
As is usual in polemical discussions, the
comaoversy was opened Ty sevoral incon.
sequential queries and answers. For half
an bourneiiltf r party had put forth a starti
ling proposition; 'ha wily Indian taking
care to conhno Iiimsclt to the defensive.
Tired at length by this scene Clarke sud.
dcnly and abruptly nsked him,
4 Aro you forbidden to eat any thing in
which animal life exists 7'
4 1 am.'
4 Have you ever broken through this
; 4 Never.' " ' ' '
4 May you not unconciously have been
led into this crime ?' "
4 Will you sweaj to it ?'
-i Moat r.fa.moly J do.. - ' ' - -
Do you ever eat pomegranates f
4 Bring me somo of that fruit, then,' re.
joined Clarke, turning to a servant. - His
order was complied with ; the pomegran
ates were brought.
VUioose one,' The Brahmin did so
4 Cut it in two.' With direction he com-
plied. - 4 Place it here,5 and Clarke assisted
him to put it beneath a microscope. 4 Now
look nt it.' -
The Brahman did so ; hut no sooner did
he npply his eye, than ho started back with
affright. The fruit was perfectly nlive with
animalculic. Tho puzzled Hindoo drew out
the pomegranate, which, perhaps, my read
ers are not aware is more closely filled with
insects than any other fruit, looked at it,
examined if , reploced it, and again beheld
the myriads or living creatures with which
it was rifo. He felt -it with his hand, to
convince himself that there wns no trick in
in the affair. Then suddenly drawing him-
self up, he slowly uttered, 4 Bus such-liV
enough it is i rue.
4 You acknowledge, then, that you have
sinned-tinconscionsl yl That e verfr thinir
being filled with nnimalcukc invisible to the
naked eye, vou can neither cat nor drink
without committing a crime?'
ino noasnea tiinaoo Dowea.
4 Shall I show you how full of similar
insects every drop of water is!'
4 No ! 1 have seen chough.'
. 4 Do you desire further proof ?'
4 1 have a favour to ask.'. ' ;
What isTTt if I Tan; I TvitTg rahTlf
4 Give mo your microscope. I cannot
buy it"; give it me. .
Clarke paused for a moment, for ho had
tliat morning paid ten guineas for it ; and,
being a poor man, he co-iId ill afford to part
with it. - But as tho'Indlan was Urgent at
mdst to entreaty, he at length consented
especially as he thought the other-would
afford him in return some curiosity equal
vaiucj and presented it to him.
Tiio Brahmin took it, gave one look of
triumph round the hall, and suddenly rais
ing his arm, dashed it into a thousand atoms
on the marble floor.
4 What do you mean by this ?' exclaimed
Clarke, in undisguised astonishment.
4 It means, Sir Christian,' replied the
Hindoo, in a cold, grave tone, 4 it means
that I was, a happy, a good, a proud man.
By means' of yonder instrument, you have
robbed me of all future happiness. You
have condemned me to descend to my grave
wretched and miserable !'
With these words the unfortunate Brah
min quitted the halt and soon alter retired
up the country.
