Linden, i c Linen.
In Fayette when the nvas low
The street lamps t-hone with ruddy glow,
And not so gentle was the flow
Of the creek which poured its turbid waters over the
old Eccles mill dam very rapidly.
But Fayette saw another sight
When the storm howled at dead of night,
And put out every public light
So that the town guard who had retreated to the
market to keep out of the rain, which was a very natu
ral proceeding aud one greatly conductive to health
and comfort, could'nt see anybody prowling about
under heaven's drippiug canopy.
By wind a d tempes rain dismay 1
Each guarusman "neaih the shelter staid,
While turious" blasts around them played
And the chances for the detection of auy prowling
burglars or other troublesome individuals, of which
there is a considerable f a pretty smart sprinkling
hereabouts, were rathar slim than otherwise probable.
Then crept some thieves, to plunder given,
By lu-t for fancy dry goods driven,
And while the rain poured down from heaven
They very coolly proceeded to Mr Jones' store and
removed therefrom more than a thousaud dollars worth
of liueu, calico and a variety of other articles, which
they couveyed to parts aukuowu: whereupon the neat
morning the Mayor's brow grew dark with indirnatioi
and he offered a mighty reward of cb'tisiderabtc 6Ver a
dollar and a half for the defection 6f the robbers,
which was doing the thing up right handsomely Con--sidering
the value of the goods.
And blacker yet that brow phall gfow,-
Wheri day by day shall fait to show
The goods, the thieves, the place whereto
The articles were conveyed, and also the policy of
sticking to the motto, ' Put none but Americans on
guard." which is a very deceitful motto so "ar as safe
ty to dry poods iscoreerned. nd is always productixe
of annoyance to rood citizens, loss of property, doors
disfigured with black clcth hearts after elections, and
divors other violations of law and good order, of which
our citizens are becoming particularly tired.
Tis morn; but scarce yon lurid sun
Car. p'erce the gray fog's rolling dun,
Wbil" business men have just begun
Thir daily avocations, when a great caterwauling
take place, and it is d'scovcred that either there, must
have been a number of burglars engaged in the robbery
or el.e the thief must have carted off his spoils under
the very noses of the watchful guardians of the public
weal either of wlpch is a very refreshing reflection to
the other merchants who dont know when tbey them,
selves may be similarly victimized.
The interest deepens. On. ye brave
Who rnsh those fancy goods to save!
Rave, Famtny, all ye nat'ves rave
And make a great parade of doing something for the
discovery of these depredators, who if they ever are
discovered, which is wholly improbable, will turn out
to be full blooded natives to the manor born; neither
catholics ndr foreigners, and in all probability third
degree know nothings.
Ah! Jones, while moons shall wax and wane
Those goods you'll never see again,
While every ui;ht of storm and rain,
When none but Americans are put on guard, will
subject some other merchant to the same ordeal, until
the time comes when the public interest shall demand
a reversal of the present acting mottto and the unani.
mous watchword of our citizens will be, Put no "Amer
icans"' on guard to night! For which blessed consum
mation will ever pray. CHIPS.
THE JACKSOK GOLD SM FF BOX.
The people of New York city have had a
merry and excited time pending the presenta
tion of the gold snuff box, willed by Gen. Jack
son to that patriot "most valiant in defence
of his country, and our country's rights."
Maj. Dyckman, it was believed, would re
deive the present, but Col. Burnett was also a
contestant for the gift. In view of these rival
claims, Mr Jackson determined to present the
box to neither. The following letter from Mr
Jackson, wil explain the reasons for his re
fusal: Metropolitan IIotei, Sept 14, lSSt.
Peter Monegan. Esq., Chairman of the Spe
cial Committee My Dear Sir: I am here with
the gold snuff box left in trust with me Uy my
venerable father, to be presented to that pat
riot "most valiant in defence of his country
and our country's right's, to be adjudged by
his countrymen." I regret, under the deep
feelings and conflicting opinions which I find
to exist, that I cannot, satisfactory to my own
sense of propriety and deference to the witl of
my father, now venture to deliver this relic.
Nothing will afford me hiirher satisfaction
:!ian the execution of this trust, whenever the
public opinion of the people of he State shall
concentrate upon some honored son, distin
guished above all others, to receive this pre
cious token, "in strict compliance with the re
quest of the donor." TJntit I can thu execute
tiie trust of the great and good man whom I
represent, I must, under a sense of affection
and duty, decline to act. I can but regret the
division of sentiment and the excited feelings
which seem to exist here. I have, therefore.
determined to ret urn to the Iler.nitoge wit!
tins sacred memento ot my tatner, wiicse wish
es I desire strictly to fulfil, and whenever the
public judgment of the people of t.ie State of
j New York shall settle the claim between indi
viduals, it shall be mv olensure at onee to dis-
L.M!.rjre the duty resting upon me bv virtue of
this "delicate and responsible trust. Until I
jean satisfy myself, I cannot hope to satisfy iu-
OiviUuals, or the public, but prompt action
fhali follow a clearly expressed public opionion.
In conclusion, I will add, that I knew of no
j contest, and expected none, under the first an-
pi, cation for the gold box but anxious to do
my duty, I have derided at present to make no
delivery of the box, nor undertake to decide
between the brave and gallant jrentlemen
whose respective claims are so warmly and ar
dently urged by their friends.
I havf the honor to be, respectfully, your
Andrew Jackson, Jr.
P. S, It is due to His Honor the Mayor
to add, that I have decided tin this course with
out liaving seen him, or having had any con
versation with hini, in consequence of his ab
sence from tlie city, aud hence, without hnow
ing what his views were upOu the subject.
A. Jackson, Jk.
We had hoped that the terrible blow of Inst
week had been so conGned in its extent, that
no great damage had been done beyond our
immediate iieighbornood. But in this it wouhl
appear that wc nad been Woefully mistaken.
Slowly the news of disaster comes in, but
with terrible certainty, and the last account
that of the Central America, is in every sense
of the word the most awful that has occurred
on our coasts for years, alike in the destruc
tion of life and property. Her Commander,
the gallant Herndon, the explorer of the Am
azon, is in biinself, a host to be lost to the
country, and there is every reason to believe
that fully five hundred persons have sunk
with hiiu to a watery graue. The accounts by
the Empire ci'.y place the number of passen
gers on board the lost steamer at seven hun
dred, of whom o dy 149 are known to be sav
ed. Her crew, including sailors, firemen, en
gineers and servants, could not have been less
than one hundred. Just think of it a num
ber of people greater than the whole popula
tion of the town of Clinton all gone down.
The loss of property nanst also be i niuense
not under two millions. - The Steam r is said
to have had over a million and a l.alf of spe
cie on board as freight, exclusive of that in
the hands of passengers, with all their bag
gage aud other property The vessel could
not have been wo th less than two hundred
thousaud dollars. The specie is said to have
been insured in England, the vessel in New
York. But insured or not, the property is
lost equally in one case as in tlie other.
What other horrors are yet to be added to
the details of disaster by the late stonri, we
cannot tell, llatteras is a terrible Cape, and
marked by disasters which justly make it the
ter-or of the mariner who sails aloug our coast.
