Christine rolled in the lap of luxury, she
was serene and contented. OneHay while
roaming about the house, for lack of some
thing better to do, she espied in an up
per and long-ago disused chamber, a clos
et, which was locked. Curiosity is na
tural to thesex, and being a strong woman,
he soon forced it open, and, despite the
dust and rubbish, commenced what in
bousekecDintr parlance is termed a good
rummage. Her exertions were rewarded
by finding a bundle, which, she orougni
to light, and opened. It contained a
coat and a pair of trousers, and a box,
which -she no sooner saw than she turn
ed pale as death, and sunk half fainting to
the floor, liut Christine wfis not naiurany
timid, and she soon recovered. Tbe box
was identified as one belonging to her late
husband, and. she did not ifloubt, contain

sers looked much like those worn. by her
present one, and as she turned them over
a letter dropped out, which, on reading

THE NORTH AND THE SOUTH.
. The Baltimore American, in reply to
the sneers of Some Northern journals at
movements to advance Southern commer
cial interests, says t :--
What is the North to do without lhat
assailed, vituperated, agitated, convulsed
South T Nay what ran it do without it J
What is the basis of its commerce T What
is the basis of its industry T What is the
basis of its exchange ? What is tbe basis
of its manufactures? What feeds the
looms of England and France? What
builds and freights its ships ? Hard as it
may be for lhat region to acknowledge
the fact, the only reply is: The South and
its Labor !
In 1850. The Labor of the South gave
those elements, without which American
commerce at the North could not exist a
moment, in the following enormous quan
titles:
Rice. 215.312.710 pounds.
Tobacco, 199.752,610 pounds.
Cotton, 2,270,000 bales.
Cane Sugar. 247.581.000 pounds.
Maple M 32.309 880 pounds.
Molasses, 12,700,000 gallons.
Alt this vast production ol national sta-
nleihe substantial basis of Northern
manufket tires and commerce is the re--
suit of Southern labor, independently of
mmense quantities, of provisions, hemp.
flax, cattle, and various other articles
grown in Middle and Western States,

years since Mr. Webster started off from
Marshfield on a trouting expedition to
Sandwich, neighboring town on Cape
Cod. On approaching a fine stream he
alighted from his wagon, and just then
be met the owner of the farm, whose
stream run tbrougb it. Good morning,
says Webster, 'is there any trout here ?'
'Well, says the farmer, 'some people fish
here, but I don't know whaMhey do get.,
i'll throw my line in, says Webster, 'and
see what is. Webster walked the banks
of the stream trying his luck, and the old
farmer followed bim. Soon Webster re
marked 'You have some bog on your farm.'
'Yes,' says the farmer.'that ain't the worst
of it.' -Fishing still further along Webster
says, 'You seem to have plenty ot mosqi
toes here.' 'Yes,' he replied. 'that ain't the
ferst of it.' Webster still kept throwing
his line ipto the deep pools, and (hen said,
You have plenty of briars here.' 'Yes,'
says the farmer, 'and that ain't the werst
ofit: Mr. Webster getting sorricwhaldis
couraged in a hot August day, bitten by
mosquitoes, scratched by briars, and not
raising a single fish, dropped his rod and
aaid.'he didn't believe there was any trout
here.' 'And that ain't the worst of it.'
says the farmer. 'Well,' says Mr. Web
ster.'l would like to know what the worst
of it is!' 'There never was any here P
says the farmer. Mr. Webster enjoyed
the joke, and often told 7t to his particular

With regard 10 the acquisition of Cuba,
Mr. Everett says:
The President does not covet the acqui
sition or Cuba Tor the United States. At
the same time he considerflthe condition
of Cuba" as mainly an American ques
tion. The proposed Convention proceeds
on a different principle. It assumes that
the United States has no oilier or
greater interest in tho question Tthan
France or England ; whereas it is news
sary only to cast one's eye on the map to
see how remote are the relations of Europe
and how intimate those of the United
States with this Island."
The Island of Cuba lies at our doors;
it commands the approach toGulfof Mex
ico, washes the shores of five of our States;
it bars the entrance to that great river
tvhieh drains half the North American
Continent, and with its tributaries, forms
the largest system of internal water com
munication in the world ; 11 Keeps which
at the doorway ol our intercourse with
California bv the Isthmus route. If an Is
land like Cuba belonging to the Spanish
Crown guarded the entrance lo the
Thames or the Seine.and the United States
should propose a Convention like tbis to
France and England, these powers would
assuredly feel that the disability assumed
by ourselves was far less serious than that
which we asked them to assume.
Mr. Everett goes on to speak of the
proof tbe President has given of bis sin-
1 il . -. 1 a! t MM -tf
cerity in not ocsiring too a4uiuH v.
Cuba, and introduces the Crescent City
Affair:
No embarrasement caused by the indis

Cuba ''Ti'avirmovdnurt'rfdm'ine pain or
duty. In this respect the Captain General
of that Island, an officer apparently of up
wright and conciliatory, character, but
probably more used to military command
than the management of ci vil affairs, has,
in a puflfctilio, in .jr.eierect.j'ihamr:

been entirely innocent of the matters laid
to his charge, refused to allow passengers
and the malls of the United. States to be
landed Irom a vessel having him on hoard.
This certainly is a very extraordinary
mode of animadverting upon a supposed

interruption of commercial Intercourse,
which would result in war, and a delay
of weeks and months necessary for a ne.
gotiation with Mdrid.with all the chances
of the most deplorable occurrences in the
interval, and for atriflelhat ouhto
have: admitted of a settlement by n ex
chanfee of notes between Washington and
the Havana. The President has, howev
er, patiently submitted to these evils, and
has continued faithfully to give to Cuba
the advantages of those principles of the
public law under which she has departed
in this case from the comity nations. But
the incidents to which I allude, and which
are still in train, are among many others
which point decisively to the expediency
of some change in the relation ot Cuba,
and the President thinks that the influence
of France and England with Spain would
h-weU emnloved ia inducing her-so to ,
modify the administration of the Govern
menr of Cuba as to afford. the, tneani of
some prompt remedy for the evils of the
kind alluded to, which have done much to
increase the spirit of unlawful enterprise
against that Island. "
Mr. Everett next proceeds to show:
Th at a convention, such as is proposed,
would be a transitory arrangement, sure
to be swept away by the irrestible tide
of affairs in a new country, as the project
rests upon principles, applicable, if at all,
to Europe, where international relations
are. in their basis of great antiquity, slowly
modified for the most part in the progress
of time and events, and not applicable to
America, which but lately a waste, is fill
ing up with intense rapidity and adjusting
on natural principles, its territorial rela
tions.
Then a graphic sketch of the history of
the Continents of America and this Repub
tic is given and I Mr. Everett says: ,
No person surveying these event with
the eye of comprehensive statesmanship,
can fail to trace in the main result the .
undoubted pperatiort of the law of our po
litical -existence. The consequences are
