, If I was a lawyer, I would not charge a
poor man five dollars for a few words of ad

conscience to charge as much as they do for
feeling the pulse, extracting a tooth, taking a

If I was" merchant," I would havean'es

If I was a mechanic,' I would apply my

of ray family, refrain from visiting taverns

to. have his woik done by a certain time, I
would endeavor to be punctual.

The London porter is celebrated by all ad
mirers of malt liquor. The brewers all use
the waters of the Thames, which is thus de
scribed by Or. Budd, in a dissertation read
before the Medical Society of South Carolina
44 The Thames' water taken up at London,
is a composition of . all kinds ol filth that the
human, mind can conceive. S;inking meat
and fish, with the blood and. garbage from the
butchers' slaughter houses, kept till they are
full of vermine, the carcases of every species
of dead animals, the. dressings, and disa
greeable matter from the hospitals, contain
ing five or six thousand consumptive patients.

man beings, and perhaps twice that number of
other animals, are discharged by a numbered
sewers that run through the city into the
I names, ana lorm tms oase composition,
which permit me to call the essence ot Porter.
Perhaps there may be soine propriety in the
name, as it is this filthy collection which gives
the London porter the particular flavor that
makes it so much admired, bv the lovers of
that liquor. Is it unreasonable to suppose
that use can make such liquor agreeable, when

and was purchased from that lady, in 1792,
by the Margrave of Anspach, for 85,000.
His serene highness married Elizabeth, dow
ager Jady Craven, and sister of the late earl
ol Berkley. Under the direction of the Mar
gravine, considerable improvements were
made, both in the house and grounds. The
latter were bid out with peculiar taste ; and
rrom their proximity to the river, Of which a
view is commanded from many points, they
form a delightful lounge.
1 he mansion still maintains some of its an
cient splendor, and from the magnificence of
many of the rooms, is every way calculated
for a royal residence.. The decorations of the
interior are extremely elegant, and the apart
ments large and commodious. The drawing
room, especially, is 38 by 23 feet, and 30 feet
in height. The ceiling of the room was pain
ted by lord Malcombr, by whom also a very
costly chimney-piece, representing in white
marble the marriage of the Thames and Isis,
was put up. Near the water side is a small
Theatre, where the Margravine entertained
hcrfrirnds with dramatic exhibitions, in which
she herself occasionally performed. The
theatre is connected with the dwelling-house
by a conservatory, of .150l feet in length. - It
is of a curvilinear form, and occupies the sit:
of a colonnade. This, however, bears the
mark of neglect ; workmen are, however, now
busily engaged in preparing the place for her
majesty s reception, and in putting up such
furniture as may be necessary for the tem
porary accommodation of her establishment.

Add as many new states as we please to the A
mcrican confederacy, yet, if it is for the interest
of individuals composing those states, to barter
and exchange their productions: if self interest,
interest the strongest of all ties, predominates :
if, in other words, an internal commerce may be
carried on to advantage, by the making of roads
and canals, there is, there can be, no fear of our
political separation. Every new road, every new
canal, facilitates such intercourse ; and it may in
some sort be regarded as a prodigy, that here
both patriotism and self-interest pull one way.
