I marked him as he stood
fcerene and high, of dauntless bioxlt
And genius in his eye.
Bright did it beam With eagle glance,
Or, like the godlike child of France,
All Mitent to defy.
He stfKj! alone amid his peers
Without his hopes, without his fears,
IJut not without his sway.
I'or many looked upon him there
An 1 yielded what they would not dare
In malice take away.
Alone amid a dauntless band
Of palmy knight from Southern land.
He held entire control,
For weil they deemed that he could save
Their country from an early grave,
They knew his lotty soul.
As.de the robe of power he threw,
And as he trampled it, he drew
His faulchion from his rijjht.
His bearing made the fiercest cower
And bend beneath this magic power
And yield to him in fight.
Breathe not against the Patriot's name,
Ye cannot stop his march to fame,
Ye cannot dim his light !

HOW THE DEVIL A1TEAKED TWICK TO
ZEliUliAUEL RISK, A LOTTERY BROKER.
During one of those dreadfully rainy evenings last
montii a tall gentleman called at a lottery otiice in
Broadway. He had a Iarre, dark, piercing eye ; a pro
di'JTN'Us long and hooked nose ; a coal-black beard, a lit
tle ssn .red at the edges; and two rows of double teeth
all urou.iJ. The cut of his garments was not material
ly d liferent from that of otiier gentlemen of modern
times. As his whole dress was black, the lottery dea
ler at first took hirn to be a preacher, who had como to
reprove him for his wickedness and disregard of the
laws, in persisting to sell tickets contrary to the statue
in such cases made and prov ided ; and he began, in great
perturbation, to huddle hid contraband wares out of
tight as as possible.
"Never mind, my friend," said the man in black, at
the same time opening his mouth just far enough to dis
play th eotiro on tor row F Jubio tootl - "norcr
urmtd, my mend you and 1 are old acquaintances
... 1- - I. . .1 up
we've dealt together before now.
"I've no recollection of that," said the lottery man,
who now began to be somewhat reassured "perhaps
we have and perhaps we ha'nt. I don't recollect your
fiee now thou jh the truth is, I deal with so many res
pectable people of all sorts, that really 1 can't recollect
the half of them."
" But vou'll recollect my name, when I mention it?"
" Perhaps so that is to" say if or but what shall I
call vour name, if I m ly be so lol I !"
" I'm the Devil," said the stranger, bluntly.
"The devil you are!" said the lottery man, starting
back ten or eleven feet, turning pale, and nearly gnsp
i:iiT for breath ; while the stranger seemed greatly to
enjoy his si.rpiisi. At length, however, recovering
himself a little, the seller of chances said, in a kind of
deprecation tone, " I I I hope, sir, you're not about
to that is, that you are not in haste to "
Pshaw !" eotite nptuously ejaculated the man in
black, "what a white-livered tol you are, Zerubabel
Risk! Ilav'nt we dealt together for many a year on
friendly terms ?"
You are pleased to be merry, sir, in saying so but
however honorable the intercourse with a gentleman of
your distinguiseil reputation might be, I must say I ne
ver, to my recoIl'Tt.on, fiad the honor ot your company
or conversation before; and as for any dealings with
" Well, we won't quarrel alout that, Zerubabel. I
came here up n urgent business, as you may well sup
jose, by seeing me here, so far from home this dreadful
"Urgent business, say you T Urn! umph! -our pre
sent scenic in the .Maryland State Littery is peculiarly
rich." So saying, Mr. Risk again placed the tickets on
tho counter, which he had jut before huddled away.
"Here is something worth trying a man's fortune upon.
Bat are you really the devil or did you merely say so
to frighten me V
"If you have any doubts on the subject," said the
Ktranger, opening his mouth this time so as to display
hi- second row of teeth, " here are my horns, which I
ha.e hitherto kept concealed under my hat, which, be
ing fashion ibly high-rrowned, is very convenient for
th it purpo-e ; and here, too," turning his hack to the
broker, and holding up the skirts of his coat "here is
my tail, which I keep coiled up in this nimner, when
ever I visit the earth, out of regard to the prejudices of
the people ; and then, to satisty you s-till further that I
am really and truly myself, here is my cloven foot,
which at present I have encased in a fashionable hoot,
which I purchased a little; way back, at I forget the

"Bit you're mistaken," said the chvi1. aliout my
having plenty of money. I'm poor, fit vresuf, as a
church mouse. I had some dealings down bdow, late
ly, with a rascally Steim-brinito!i -Mariuiartur!ii2 ;

one year; and having got their pay six months in ad
vance, decamped with the money, and n-arly rumu-l

"None of your palaver, Zerubabel. Do you think
I'm such a fool as to go upon uncertainties J You must
warrant me the fifty thousand dollar prize."
"I don't know which it is that is to say, I don't
know which ticket will draw it. But as you are the
devil, and know every thing, you can tell just which
numbers to choose."
"Ah, hive you got me there, old fox !" So saying,
the devil cnuckled marvellously at the broker's compli
ment to ins knowledge. He then looked over the tick
ets, and presently told him the right one was not there;
ami that .r 11 A) would be the fortune one.
" Perhaps I can get it tor you," said Mr. Risk. "But

" Fifteen per cent," growled the devil.
"That I'm entitled to by the law," returned the bro
ker; "but how much more will you give 1"
"Two per cent," said the devil, "and that will pay
von well for your trouble."
"(me me five," said Uik, "and I'll see what I can
do fa- von."
" Done!" said the devil, "and here's my hand upon it."
"Oh my! fiow dreadful hot y our hand is! you've
burnt my "fingers to the very bone."
" I always like to give my friends a warm reception.

"don't forget the numbers. 1 would go and get

as long as I live. But I must be going now. Remem
ber, friend Risk, f 11 4!) those are all odd numbers,
and they'll be lucky. So good night to you."
The devil went away. But he was not acquainted
with all the cunning of the lottery dealer. The latter,
as it happened, had the very ticket laid aside for his
own private use, which the devil had chanced to hit
upon. But he held his tongue on that point, in order
to get the better bargain out of Old Nick.
In a day or two the lottery drew, and, sure enough,
5 11 49 came up the fifty thousand dollar prize. "Well,"
fcaid Risk to himself, "here's a glorious chance now fur
speculation. Stip;ose I keep the whole prize myself,
instead of taking up with the paltry commission of live
per cent, amounting to let me see only about two
thousand dollars and what's that compared to the
whole! I'll do it by the holy sjx)n ! I'll do it, if it
costs me my life. But there's no danger of that. I'll
tell the devil, when he comes, I couldn't possibly pro
cure the ticket he wanted, and there'll be an end of the
In a very short time the devil came for his prize
"111 take that small sum of money now," said he,
"I'm sorry to imform yon," replied the latter, "that
I couldn t M)ssibly procure your favorite numbers, and
of course "
"1 am sorry for it too, Mr. Risk, as well on your ac
count as my own. I ve made two long tourneys, now,
from my place down below, and I don't like to be dis-
apxiinted : besides, I was in hopes of putting a couple
of thousand dollars in your pocket, by the bargain."
"I was in hopes o, too; but unfortun itely
"Oh, you infernal lying scoundrel!" said the devil,
(who had latterly been improving his diction by reading1
certain newspapers,) "do you think to come paddy over
me in this manner I I know your rascally trick. But
you must go with me."
At this the broker turned pale and fell upon his knees.
But it did no good. The devil twisted his tail alxmt
him in a twinkling, and whisked him away before he
could recollect a single prayer. A loud thunder-clap
was heard at the tune, and there was a strong smell of
brimstone; while of the broker nothing was afterwards
found not even a greau bpot, a lottery ticket, or a dol
lar of rag money.

The Doctor, who once resided in this place, but
now lives in Raleigh, has, after a long and exten
sive practice, been enabled to compound a most va
luable remedy for the chronic diseases of the di
gestive organs, so common in Southern climates,
especially with those who lead sedentary lives.
It would be an easy matter to make out certifi
cates to prove that these Pills are a "sovereign re
medy" for "all the ills that flesh is heir to;" but
it is not pretended that they are an universal anti
dote. Certificates of tho most respectable Physi
cians and other gentlemen can be shown to sub
stantiate their etlicacy in the particular class of
diseases above spoken of: and the Editor of this
paper can testify that he has derived speedy and
permanent relief, m the use of them, from a most
distressing and long-continued head-ache. Soino
of his friends tried them, at his suggestion, and ex.
penVnced the same beneficial effects.
