Oh, shame, Sec.
No, no, I'll hold my vote
As a treasure and a trust,
My dishonor none shall quote
While I'm mingled with the dust;
And my children, when I'm gone.

To be bought, boys, bought!

A Novel Adventure. On ihe
complaint of a shipmaster from
Norfolk, 'Va. two yellow girls,
named Elizabeth George and Bet
sy Ben, were last night arrested
by Sparks, Homan and Mcrritt,
and this morning examined on the
charge of the shipmaster, who ac
cused them with robbing him of
379 in cash, and his coat, vest
and pantaloons. Elizabeth, on
Tier examination, stated that on
Saturday evening last, she was
accosted by the complainant in
Orange street, and he accompani
ed her home, where he took lodg
ings for the night, putting his
clothes under his pillow. He had
not been in bed long before Betsy
Ben and a girl named Francis,
came into the room, and insisted
that the lodger should hang his
clothes on the line. This he re
fused to do, whereupon Betsy blew
mit the light, snatched the clothes,
in one of the pockets of winch the
money was deposited, and ran
down stairs with the booty. The
lodger followed on after her, and
cried for the watch, but the thief
escaped out of the house. Eliza
beth denied any further knowl
edge of the money, and Betsy
denied any knowledge whatever
of the transaction; but the latter
wa fully committed for trial on
the charge, and the former was
discharged. The ' officers above
named succeeded in recovering
the clothing, and in finding the
money behind a coal box at a
neighboring corner.

course is necrssiry. I J imr.w
of mo belter mode of giving the
proper notice or caution than to
lay before the reader a few pa-sage
in the last week of my bio
gr.iphy. The facts are, that on the eve
ning of Friday last I found my
self suddenly "in the custody of an
officer by virtue of warrant, which
set forth" and alleged among other
things that 1 had in June last cul
tivated too intimate an acquaint
ance with one Martha M. B. Wes
tern, a young ami vagrant spins
ter. This young woman had
visited a cousin of her at my
house, once in March and once
in October; between which times
I had not seen her. On the fol
lowing morning I was ordered
by a magistrate to find security
to the amount of 300, or to mar
ry the damsel or go to jail. Now
for n man with a house full of ba
bies to convey away the bulk ol
his property, was in my view a
serious matter, and the jail is no
joke, and to marry a woman a
body dislikes is the least amusing
of all I was in much perplexity,
and instead of advising as I ought
to have done with eleuer heads
than mine, and getting a writhe
vent insp. 1 did as Cato and
' 1 .iird llrmri:im liuvc flnni1 heforp
me I drank and forgot my
sorrow. What passed in the lat
ter part of Saturday 1 cannot from
my own recollections clearly
state. But I learn from others
that my opinion of matrimony
seemed to grow brighter with
every ghis; and that the justice
and const.ible having exhausted
their patience in waiting for mv
decision, I stood up before the
presiding magistrate and held
Miss Weston's hand w hile the jus
tice attempted to marry us, and
while both the ladv and myself
were uttering sentiments any thing
but conjugal.
On Sunday I found myself ra
tional; I sought an interview
with the lady and heard her full
confession of what I knew from
the beginning, that she hud com
mittal perjury. She further ad
mitted that her pressing calamities
had all been feigned: that she had
proceeded in her plot till frighten
ed by its very success, she deter
mined to tell the truth, a medical
gentleman was able to confirm
her confession, and w hat I had
asserted in vain to the civil autho
rity and all my other friends, was
now clear as preaching, namely,
that they had the wrong pig by
the ear or rather that thev had
no occasion to meddle with the
ear of any pig at all.
INow what 1 wish to have un
derstood is this, that I maintain I
am a single man. I have already
been dunned for some of this
wretched woman's debts, but 1
have not paid them, and 1 will not
pay them. Lgt no one trust her
on my account for she is not my
wife. I will fight this question
withnv last ninepence.

"Advertisement Extraordinary,"
as it was headed, from the Brattle

their Honors the Court of Chan

still as I think, a widower or a

rather limited, and the support of

confined myself to the shades of
private life. My present appear

OWe have recorded a number
of instances latel y of extreme old
age in the south, but we believe
the follow ing goes ahead of all.

age of one hundred and thirty,
retaining her bodily and mental
faculties. A. Y. Star.
From the Pacific Ocean.
The editors of the New York
Gazelle learn by the arrival ol the
Vermont. Lieut. Davis, that the
new constitution of Peru had been
read and sworn to throughout the
several Stales of the Republic and
that the country was quiet. Gen.
Gamarra had fled to Bolivia.
Chili was tranquil, but an erup
tion was feared at the close of the
present administration The
French Minister on account of
some difficulty with the Govern
ment had left Santiago and would
hold no further intercourse with
the authorities. The civil war
continued to rage at Guayaquil
in August, with little prospect of
a reconciliation between the two
parties. The city had been afflic
ted with a sort of plague, which
had carried off about 3,000 inhab
itants.
New Locomotive Engine.
We learn that an experiment is
making in England, to ascertain
the character of a new locomotive
power on land and water, which
gives great promise of success.
The Engine is moved by some
gaseous agent connected with, or
produced by Mercury, exposed
to heat.
A steamboat has actually been
propelled by this new power with
great velocity. We will endeav
or to furnish our readers with
the earliest information on tin
subject.
And by the way, if certain ex
periments succeed, now making
by one of our own citizens, with
steam power applied directly lo
arms upon a shaft carrving a wa
ter wheel, and which is said to
have been fully tried at Syracuse,
the present form of Steam En

will be shortly abandoned. Jt is
