rived at New York on Saturday morning
1 The- Steam Ship Panama, xjrpm San
Francisco April 15th, arrived at Panama
on the 2d of May, bringing 81,00.0,000 in
gold dust, and 250 passengers.
The Steam Ship Isthmus left San Fran
cisco in company with the Panama, hav
ing on board about 81.000,000 in gold dust,
and about 300 passengers.
The U. S. sloop ot war Vincennes was
at Panama May 3d ; all well.
ThexSteam Ship Gold Hunter was at
Acapulco, taking in passengers for Pana
ma on 23d April.
The LI Dorado saw a steam ship going
into Chagres the day she came but. The
gold dust and mails were left oh the Isth
mus by the El Dorado, after having wait
ed two days for them at Chagres.
There has been more lynching at the
mines, in which there is a lamentable
state of affairs.
We do not find any thing of much inter

How to Treat a WrpK,' First, get a wife ;
secondly, be patentr Yoti may; have great
trials and perplexities in your business with the
world ; but do no! therelore carry to your home
a clouded or contracted brow. Your wife may
save many trials,; which, though of less magni
tude, may have been as hard to bear. A kind
conciliating word, a tender look, will do ivon
ders in chasing from her brow all clouds o
glow. You encqunter your difficulties in the
open air, fanned by heaven s coot breezes ; but
your wife is often shut in from these healthful
influences, and her health fails, and her spirits
lose their elasticity. But oh ! bear with her ;
she has trials and sorrow to which you are a
stranger, but which your tenderness can deprive
of all their anguish. Notice kindly her little at
tentions andyefforts to promote your comfort.
Do not take them all as a matter of course, and
pass them by, at the same time being very,
sure to observe any omission of what you may
consider duty to iou. , Do not treat her with in
difference, if you would not sear and palsy her
heart, which, watered by kindness, would, io the
latest day of your existence, ihrob with, sincere
and constant affection. Sometimes yield your
wishes to hers. She has preferences a! strong
as you, and iumay be as trying to yield her
choice as to you, Do you find it hardlo-yield
sometimes? Think you it is not difficult for
her fo give up always ? If you never yield lo
her wishes, there is danger that she will thmk
you are selfish, and care only for yourself; and
with such feelings she cannot love as she might.
Again, show yourself manly, so that your wife
can look up to you, and feel that you will act
nobly, and that she can cot. fide in your judg
ment. Weekly Dispatch. ;
There would seem after all to be a deal of

Messrs. Bacon and DeLyon, who

signed received during, their late visit to
Boston, at the hands of the good people
of that city, so much marked kindness,
attention, courtesy and aid, that they feel
it to be their duty to make some formal
and public acknowledgment of it. .
We went to Boston in the pufsuit of a
fugitive,slave,as entire strangers, with one
or two letters of introduction; and possess
ing no claim whatever on the people of
that city. Under these circumstances we
were most honorably received, and sur
rounded during our stay there by hundreds
of gentlemen, Who aided us by every
means inheir power. The merchants of
the City in particular were conspicuous in
their efforts to serve us. It would give us
pleasure to enumerate some of these in
dividuals, but the numbers were so great
that it would be wrong to particularize.
To marshal Tukey, officer O. A. Butman
and the Boston police generally, we are
indebted for the most efficient service and
friendly advice. Indeed our reception
could not wll have beei. more kind and
encouraging. From letters which can be
seen, now in our possession, coming from
merchants of high standing, we have no
doubt that we could have obtained secu
rity (had it been required) to the amount
of millions of dollars. Every thing we
saw and heard in Boston has left on our
mind the strong and enduring impression
Scriptural Plan of Benerolence.
(BY HEV. SAM'L HARRIS.)
Thoughtful readers cannot but observe the
importance ascribed in the Bible to acts of cha
rity; the boldness with which the inquirer for
salvation is commanded, "Sell all that thou hast,
and give to the poor;" the pre eminence in
deadliness assigned to the love of money as
4Mhe root of all evil ;" the earnestness and (re
quency with which men are warned of its pe.
rils, and of the absolute incompatibility of serv.
ing God and mammon ; the elevation given to
the standard of benevolence, " Let this mind
be in you,, which was also in Christ Jesus ;"
and the vital connection everywhere implied be.
tween alms giving and the highest attainments
of piety, of spiritual power, and spiritual joy.
They cannot but be startled, sometimes, with
the apprehension that there is a strange con
trast here between the Bible and the church ;
that the faithful applying of scriptual truth on
this point, might make many a professed disci
ple go away, like the young ruler, sorrowful, or
cry, as they did of old when Christ had been
preaching on this very subject, " Who then can
be saved ?" And they cannot but be justified
in inferring that this very contrast hetween the
designed for all nations and ages, could not
with equity fix the precise proportion. And it
fits the entire character of the gospel free
grace from God, free love from man to leave
the decision of this point to the unconstrained
love of those who have freely given all to
Christ; for "God loveth a cheerful giver."
But the principle by which the proportion to be
given is determined, is most explicitly stated.
"Let every one lay by him in store, as God
hath prospered him" Nothing can satisfy
God's claim less than a consecration to bertev.
olence of an amount proportioned to the pros
perity God has given. Do you think yourself
benevolent becauseyou give something much?
If you give less than according as God hath
prospered you," yours is but the benevolence of
Ananias and Sophira.
This principle of proportionate benevolence
is repeated in various forms in the Bible. . " If
any man minister, let him do it as of the abil
ity that God giveth." " As every man hath re
ceived the gift, even 60 minister the same one to
another, as good stewards of the manifold grace
of God." " As we have opportunity, let us do
good unto all men." " I am debtor" to put
forth benevolent efforts " as much as in me is."
" Honor the Lord with the first fruits of all thine
increase. 1 here are three noints in this re.
lecting it, he sets at naught the authority and
the wisdom of God. Men may deride it ; and
so it is written of one of our Lord's minjdis.
courses on the right use xi property, The
Pbarasees, who were covetous, beard these
things, and they derided him."

On Monday last Abram Weaver from For

and James White, of Guilford, committed for
stealing Lewis, a slave of Isaac G. Smith, Esq,
of Anson, were brought before his Honor Judge
Dick in the court house in this place, on a writ
of habeas corpus. John A. Gilmer and James
R. McLean, Esqrs., appeared as counsel for
the State ; Robert P. Dick, I). H. Starbuck
and Samuel P. Hill, Esqrs., appeared for the
prisoner. Numerous witnesses were examin
ed and the whole case heard. Weaver was
remanded to Forsyth jail. In the case against
Dean, Brown and White, the counsel for the
State, by leave of the Judge, released White
and examined him and others against Dean and
Brown. Brown was discharged and Dean
was remanded lo Guilford jail. Ve are glad

Charity. Nigbt had kissed the young
that the critjer vos rose and it bent softly to sleep. Stars
pots, vitch yos dis- shone, and pure dew drops hung upon its
by prayer and deliberation, according lo the
rules of the Bible, in the fear of God, and the
spirit of consecration to him. In carrying into
effect the plan thus deliberately adopted, char
itable appropriations will enter into the calcu
lations as much as the necessary expenditures
on the person, the family, or the business ; they
will be managed with a systematic exactness
as any branch of business ; they may with ad
vantage be as regularly booked. A line writ
ten on a memorandum of his charities, kept by
a systematic giver and found after his death,
suggests an important reason for keeping such
a record : " I keep this memorandum lest I
should think I give more than I do."
They who obey the scriptural rule of benev
otence, do not wait to be solicited. Like the
impoverished but liberal .Macedonians, they
are " willinn of themselves." If a way of
conveying their gifts is not at hand, they seek
one out, as Paul describes the Macedonians:
