    RBLSHAZZAR'S FEAST.
It is Belshazzar's festival !
A thousand lights are in the hall,
The king appears in regal ttate,
A thousand lords before him waif,
And alt the beauty of the East,
Is theieto grace the royal feast.
Inspiring wine, the festive crowd
From many a brimful goblet quaff;
The revelry is growing loud,
Willi fearless jest and spreading laugh.
High flushed then bade the impious king,
His menials to the banquet bring
The golden cups, the temple-plate,
AV hich to Jehovah consecrate,
Did long his solemn worship grace,
'Till war had swept his ho'y place.
He filled them each with foaming wine,
The king, the prince, the concubine
Their cups deep pledged, and in their mir.h,
Reviled the God of heaven and earth,
And praised in many a drunken strain,
The god of every pagan fane.
That giddy hour a human band,
Before the king, in sight of all,
: In silence cam by God's command,
And wrote upon the wall.
The king beheld and pale he grew,
His face assumed a death-like hue ;
' Bi ins in, be cried w ith troubled look ,
And as lie spoke his body shook
' Bring in the men of magic-lore,
Astrologers, the wise atid o!d,
And let them read this writing o'er ;
And he by whom its meaning's told,
A scarlet robe, a chain of gold,
A scat the second from my throne,
Shall make his rank and station known.
The wise men came, but tried in vain
The mystic writing to explain.
They gazed but baffling all their skill,
Thoee characters unravelled still,
Stood frowning from the lamp -lit wall,
And terror shot throughout that hall.
A captive Jew was brought at last,
A prophet of the King of kings ;
His looks betokened years long past;
A heart absorbed in heavenly things.
'Art thou the captive Daniel ?' said
Bclbazzar; trembling still;
'When thou these characters hast read,
And by prophetic skill,
Hast ail their hidden meaning told,
A scarlet robe, a chain of o!d,
A seat the second from my thione,
Shall make thy rank and station known.'
'Thy gifts be to thyself, eh kiug!
Thine honors take who please,
'Yet W.II I read that awful thing,
The Lord in wrath decrees.
The God most high, the father ave
A realm whose greatness grew,
'Till whom he would his power could save,
And whom he would he slew.
But while the wo: Id before him bowed,
His heart had haughty grown,
'Till He who can abase the proud,
Deposed hint from his throne.
'Nor raised him 'till an humble mind
His provider.ee adored,
And fell that kingdoms and mankind
All hung upon his word.
'And though his son, thou knewest thi J,
And heard the curse on pride,
Thy heart more arrogant than his,
The Lord ofhraven defied.
'These cups thy riot and excess,
Thy sacrilege proclaim,
The idol-gods thy songs address,
Shall leave thee to thy shame.
'And now that God who gives thee breath,
To whom thou owest all,
Those tidings sent ofspeedy death,
And wroto them on the wall.
AJKNE, MENEHo hath numbered,
Doomed for aye and sealed thy fate, ;
TEKEL In His righteous balance
Thou art wanting found in weight,
This night r pentance comes loo late.
FERES Lo! thy kingdom's sundeied
By the Persian at thy gate.'
The prophit ended e're the light
On Babel's lofty turn ts shone,
The fo luii turned Euphrates' tide.
The gates of brass were open wide,
The noise of battle woke the night,
That ball had many a b'oody stain,
Bclshazzar was among the slain,
The conqueror had seized his throne.

(VuaIlficatioii3 of a Statesman.
Before I commence the graver part of my
remaiks on this subject, 1 would recommcud
every man who is a candidate for a seat in
the Legislature, to read a certain conversation
which once took place between Socrates and
a young Athenian. This conversation may
be found translated into English somewhere
in Rolliu's Ancient history, as I presume
so.ne of our candidates would prefer the En
glish to the original Greek. Those who do
not know what part of the history to refer to
for this dialogue, will do well to commence
ut the first page and read until they come to it
lhey will be certain to recognize it as soon
as they reach it, for it was intended for tho
special benefit of candidates. Indeed I
think it would be well if some men I have
seen aspiring to distinction in the political
world, were to devote a portion of their time
every day in readiug this history ; for I am
confident 1 have known capdidates in my
lime, who have never read it, and perhaps are

candidates base claims to popular favor.
"Alas, the times ! alas, the customs!" and

lows, if they were asked, could not tell you
the difference between a high tariff and a
Giraffe: and ihev are orettv ceitain, from

it for a species ot the royal tiger.
Now, U is lor this class ot men, who set
themselves up as candidates for office, and
whose ambition so far exceeds their under
standings, that my remarks are chiefly inten
ded. Iu the Hist place, (hen, a Candidate for
a seat in the Legislature ought to be a states
man, and a statesman should bi a man of
;ood general education. He should not only
understand the rudiments of all the sciences,
(for it U not to be expected that any man can
be profound in them all,) but he should be
irellreadin history, and not unacquainted with
literature in general. He should by all means
make himself perfectly acquainted with the
science of government and political ecouomy.
A knowledge ot mis is, in tact, tne sine qua
non of a .statesman's education ; or iu plaiu
English, cue cannot be a statesman without
this knowledge. It would be just as reason
able to say that a man can be a good Carpen
ter, without having learned his trade, or a
good Surgeon, without havingstud.ied anatomy
as to say he can be an able statesman, with
out understanding the science of government
and of political economy. He ought to un
derstand the law of nations, the common law
of England, and the laws of his own country.
I do not mean that he should be an able and
profound jurist an advocate at the bar, or a
judge on the bench but that he should have
a good general knowledge ol law, and espe
cially of the laws of his own country.
Is it not an absurdity to set a man to mak
ing laws, who does not understand the nature
of law? Would it not be equally as rational,
to put a man to constructing a watch? No
one, I believe, has ever been guilty of such
folly as to attempt the latter, yet we are con
stantly practising the lormer
Another very important item among the
requisites of a statesman, is common sense,
which is the great regulator of all other qualin
cations and accomplishments. I regret to
say that this is a desideratum among many of
our finely educated gentlemen, l hey have
learned eveiythiog iu theory, alone, and have
entirely neglected to notice the practical re
sults, which always widely differ from the
theoretical, in every species of experiment.
In the physical world, for instance, in calculat
ing the multiplied power ol the pulley or the
lever, we must always make some allowance
tor friction. Just so in the moral or politi
cal world, we must always allow something
for friction, if I may so express myself. Aud
last, though not least, honesty should be re
garded as an indispensable quality ot a states
man, or any other public character. Without
this, the highest faculties and endowments, in
all probability, will bo perverted to tho worst
of purposes. Learning, wit, and genius,
without honesty, are a curse, rather than a
blessing, to the country in which they flour
ish :
"A wit's a feather, and a chief's a rod ;
An honest man's the uoblest work of God."
There are, too, a species of men among us,
whom we may term political weathercocks ;
men who shift with each popular gale, for the
purpose of retaining their station, or of rising
still higher, and ot fostering a misguided
ambition, rather than from any depravity of
character, or want of honest feelings. They
lack the proper fortitude, to brave the storm of
opposition the proper degree of moral cour
age, to maintain ihe principles which they
believe, and often know to be correct.
"They see the right, and ihey approve it too;
Condemn the wrong, & yet the wrong pursue."
Such prostitution of talents and abilities is
much to be regretfed ; aud if those who yield
to it, could see a little deeper into human
nature, they would soou discover; that such a
course will more frequently prove their ruin
tnsn tneir fortune. It is always better to
"pursue the rugged path of duty,' however
great the opposition we may have to encoun
ter, man knowingly to depart from if, what
ever may bo ihe temptations, rewards, and
emoluments of such un warrantable conduct.
It is not only morally wrong, but the worst of
policy, for a man to suffer himself to be swept
away by the current ol popular prejudice, when
his better reason dictates a different course.
But so it is, we loo often find ourselves un
able to resist the temptations which surround
us ; as well those which attack our religion
as our politics. At best we are but a frail,
hckle, and inconstant race: of
mere creatures of circumstances
more phases than the moon herself, and as
many lints and varieties of color and aspect
as tho enamel ion
in favor of no class of men, except those of
true and genuine merit. A blacksmith would

Professions without practice are like wells
without water. They show open mouths,
which are but the avenues to baser hearts.
Economy, not less than humanity, requires
you to keep all your farming stock in thriving
condition; for a working animal in good
order, will do much more work and eat less
than a poor one ; while the rest of your stock,
well kept, wilt yield more of every thing, than
double their number, if half starved, as such
mmals often are.
To "save at the spigot, and let out at the
bung," will soon empty Ihe biggest hogshead;
so will economy in small matters and waste
in large ones, speedily squander the largest
estate.
In all your farming operations, never for
get that time, like money, if once lost or mis
spent, is forever past recovery.
Constantly arrange beforehand, the daily
work of your farms. Then none of your la
borers need never be idle in waiting to be
told what he has to do.
Provide a place for every thing 9nd mis
place nothing. No time then will ever be
spent in searcbiug for what you want.
Keep double sets of such plantation imple
ments as are most used, and most exposed
to wear and tear. The whole cost of extra
sets will be amply repaid by saving the whole
time lost iu waiting for repairs, where only
single sets are kept.
Tlever resort to what are called "make
shifts," when it is possible to avoid it ; for
they, encourge carelessness and sloth, of
which they are almost sure signs.

As there is some degree of prejudice exist

as any that might be chosen from any other

revised ny inemxeives. It is pru.t' d in the same
form as the Congressional Globe, and usually make
annul ine same ntimitrr ot pases, f. her are not
so many numbers published the ft" t weeks of a
es.-ion, as Ih re are numbers of the Congressional
GloSe: b cause the memlters f s'ow wrilinif out
i heir speeches. But towards the cloe of a session
h numbers are published more frequently than the
Congressional Globe.'
Each rflhess works iscomp'ete in itse'f: but it
is necessary l.vr every sub-c !et who desires a full
knowledge of the procrrding of Congress, to have
both; because, then, if there should ht nnr ambi
guity in tho synops s of Ihe speech, or any denial of
s correctness, as published in Ihe Goo, ressional
Globe, tho rearh r may turn to the Appendix to sec
tnespeeen at lei-gin. corrected by the member hitn-
S'lf.
Iow, there is no other source but the ConsrcA-
sional Globe and Appendix, from which a pero:i
can obtain a full history of the proeecdini s of Cou-
er-ss. Gales and Seaton's Ke-ister of Debate.
which contained a hisiorv, was 'suspended irr4ho
year IS37, and has not sinco been resumed. It
cost about five times as much for a session as tho
Congressional Globe and Appendix, and did not -cor;
tarn an equal amount ol matter, a sreat portion
ot ine current proceedings neing omitted. 1 ho
speeches of both parlies are published in the Daily
Globe, and in the Congressional Globe and Ap
pendix: other papers publish their otci tide only.
We are enabled to print the Congressional Globe
and Appendix at ihe low rate now proposed, by hav
ing a larze quantity of tpe, and keeping the Con
gressional matter that we set up for the Daily and
Semi-weekly Globe standing for the Congression
al Globe and Appendix.
Complete indexes to both the Congressional
Globe and Ihe Appendix are printed at the close of
each session, and sent to all subscribers for them.
The reports ot the Congressional Globe and Ap
pendix are not in the leaft degree affected ' by the
party bias of the Editors. They are given precisely
as written out by the Reporters and the members
themselves. And the whole are subject" to the re
vision and correction of the speakers, as they pass
in review in ourdady sheet, in case any misunder
standing or misrepresentation in their remaiks
should occur. We make a daily analysis of tho
doings in Congress, and give our opinions in it
freely; but this ;s published -only in ihe Daily,
Semi-wcekfy, and Weekly Globes. The Daily
Globe is $10, the Semi-weekly Globe $5, and the.
Weekly Globe $2 rer annum, in advance. The?
Weekly Olone i. printed in the same ioroa aa the
Oongrrsional Globe and Appendix, and a com-,
plcie index made to it at the end o! each year.
Both Houses of Congress take the Congressional
Globe and Appendix for ihvir committee rooms,
and for the libraries of Congress. So confident ar
we that all w ho may subscribe for these works will
be pleased wilh them, that wc hereby pledge our-'
selves to take them back and refund the money to
all who shall be dissatisfied. If any persons shall
have any of the previous volumes on hand, and shall
wish to dispose of them, if they will send them to
up, we will send to them the like number of the fu
ture volumes. Tho Whig members of Congress,
who did not subscribe for these works at first, are
now almost compelled to have the back numbers,.
to enable them to understand the previous legisla
tion of Congress. Wo have hack numbers on
hand ; but we can aispose of thein, and all that may
be returned to us.
TERMS.
For tho Congressional Globe, SI per copy.
For the Appendix, $1 per copy.
Six copies of either of the above will be sent for"
&.r ; twelve copies for $10; and so on in proportion'
for a greater number.
Payments may be transmitted by mail, pottage
paid, at our risk. By a rule of the Poet Office De
partment, postmasteis are permitted to frank letters
written by themselves, containing money for suS
seriptions. The notes of any bank, current where a subscri
bcr resides, willie received by us at par.
To insure all the numbers, the subscriptions
should be in Washington by the 10th of December
next at farthest.
f rCP'-V'o attention will be paid to any order unlets
