Ad muliorrm quam amo bptime. I know here a youthful maiden so fair she well might prove, . A Queen to grace a nation's throne the idol of its love ) A creature all too beautiful to dwell with care-worn . tilllltrs, A wandering spirit from the skies, an angel, bad she wings ! She hntli a broad and open brow, most delicately fair, And o'er it strays iu shining curls, hur ruveu color ed hair, And from hor (yea, her radiant eyes, thore flows such liquid beams, That nature stylos them fountains, of intellectual stream. There playa a smile about her lips, 1 sweet seraphic smile, The signet of a youthful heart, untouched by grief or guile ; , And when she speaks you lend your ear to listen to a . voice Whose slightest tones l.avu ever said unto the heart ' rejoice! '. There's music in its cadences, but chiefly when she sings, . - When forth her heart's wild melody in bird-like ca rrots rings, , You wonder whero she caught the strain, so strange ly sweet it seems, : And think soma angel's voice must have whispered , it ia dreauuk And i pearl of ah, within this casket fair, thero is worth. : Like the dew-drop in the lily-bell, hs free from taini 1 of earth ; There is a , whose rays shine through, and gild her features fair. With a portion of that blessed light colcatial beings wear. And wero this earth but peopled o'er with beings such as she. Then sin and piin would aeon take flight, and every sorrow nee; . Anal leave it all a paradise as it to man was given, ..... Where saints would ponder long methiuks, to tor. ter t fur lleueea '. Then where she wanders may she find contentment peace and enxo, And flowery paths to travel iu, that Manor fail to ' lilease. Where bright angels hover over," and smile away all . gloom. . Thorn wailing till hor spirit' 'freed from earth, to bear it home: Where all the pure in heart do dwell, forever West and free, And gutlier sweet ambrosial fruits from life's peren nial tree ; There in iuunarial youth to hloom, in uncranted lijlit , Where time nun insulted both his wiuga, and skies are ever bright ! And I will strive to meet her there, with more than Christian teal. Encouraged by her cheerful smile, and by the love I feel; For one that is so -beautiful, and has so pure a heart, Tit glory here to meet with her, there glartf ne'er to part. J.

The amy which now became supremo in the State, was an army very different from any that has since been seen among ns. At present, the pay of the common soldier !s not such us to seduce any but the humblest class of Knglish laborers from their culling. A barrier nlmost impassable separates In in from the commissioned effioer. The great mijnnty of those who rise high m the ser vice rise by purchase. So numerous and exten sive are the remote dependencies of England, that every man who enlists in the line must expect to pass many years in exile, and some years in a climate unfavorable to the health and vigor of the European race. The army of the Ing Parlia ment was raised for some service. The pay ol the private soldier was much alwve the wages earned by the great body of the people; ami, if ho distinguished himself by intelligence and courage, he might hopo to attain high commands. The ranks were accordingly composed of persons su perior in station and education to the multitude. These persons, sober, moral, diligent and accus tomed to reflect, had been induced to take up arms, not by the pressure of want, not by tlia love of no velty and license, not by the arts of recruiting of ficers, but by religious and political zeal, mingled with the desire of distinction and promotion. The boast of the soldiers, as we find it recorded in their solemn resolutions, was, that tliey had not been forced into the service, nor had enlisted for the sake of lucre, that they were not Janissaries, but free-born Englishmen, who had, of their own ac cord, put their lives in jeopardy for the liberties and religion of England, and whose right and du ty it was to watch over the welfare of the nation which they had saved. A force thus composed, might without injury to its efficiency, be indulged in some liberties, which, if allowed to any other troops, would have proved subversive of all discipline. In general, soldiers who should form thomsclvcs in political clubs, elect delegates and pass resolutions on high questions of state, would soon break loose from all control, would cuaa tu form an army, and would become the worst and most degraded of mobs. Nor would it bo safe in our time, to tolerate in any regiment, religious meetings, at which a corporal versed in scripture should lead the devotions of his less gift ed Colonel, and acknowledged aback-sliding Ma jor. Cut audi was the intelligence, the gravity and self-command of the warriors, which Crom well had trained, that in their camp a political or ganization and a religious organiiation could ex ist without destroying military organization. The same men who, off duty, were noted ns demagog ues and field preachers, were distinguished by steadiness, by the spirit, and by prompt obedieucc on watch, on drill, and on the field of battle. In war, this strange force was irresistible The stubborn courage characteristic of tho English people, was, by the system of Cromwell, at once regulated and btimuluted. Other loaders havo maintained order as strict. Olhor leaders have inspired their followers with a zeal as ardent. Hut in hit camp alone, the most rigid discipline was fouud, in company with tho fiercest enthusi asm. His troops moved to victory with the preci sion of machines, while burning with the fiercest enthusiasm. From tho lime wlien the army was remodeled, to the time when it was disbanded, it never found on the Urilish Islands or on the Con tinent, -an enemy which conld stand it onset. In England, Scotland, Ireland, Flanders, the Puritan warriors, oftru surrounded by difficulties, some times contending against three-fold odds, not only never failed to conquer, but never failed to destroy and break in pieces, whatever forco was opposed ; iMhem. - They at length dime to regard tho day of battle a a day of certain triumph, and marched against tho mo4 renowned battalions of Europe, with disdainful confidence. Turrenno was star lied by the shout of ctcrn exultation with which his English allies advanced to the combat, nnd ex pressed the delight of a true sol Jier, when he lea rn ed that it was ever tho fashion of Cromwell's pike men to rejoice when they saw the enemy ; and the banUhed cavaliers felt nn emotiotr of national pride, when they saw the brigade of their country men, outnumbered by foes and abandoned by al lies, drive before it a headlong rout, the finest in Cir.try of Swin. and force a passage into a coiin- bTscarp, which had just been pronounced impreg nable by the ablest marshals of France. But that which chiefly distinguished tho army of Cromwell from other armies, was tho austero morality and the fear of God which pervaded all ranks. . It is acknowledged by the most tealous royalists, that, in that singular camp, no oath was heard, no drunkenness or gambling was seen, and that during tho long dominion of the soldiery, the property of the peaceable citizen, and honor of wo men were held sacred. If outrages were commit ted, I liny were outrages of a different kind from those rtt' which a victorious army is generally guil ty. Nil servant girl complained of the rough gal l.mtry of the r.'d coats. Not an ounce was taken from the shops of (lie gold smiths. Ilnta Pelagian sermon, it a wii,.'ow on which tho Virgin Child was nainteil, produced in the Puritan ranks an ex invading by main forcn the pulpits of ministers i whose discourses, to use the language of that time, were not savory ; nnd too many of our ca thedrals still bear the marks of the hatud with which those stern spirits regartle 1 every vestigo of Popery ."MeCanfri's History of England ' I AM EXTRDIIXY GI.A1) TO SKI YOU !" There are more lies contained in these few words than in all the written speeches in a lawyer's of fice : and still the expression is on the tip of every one's tongue. Imagine yourself seated in your sanctum sanctorum, wrapped up in the study ol somo favorite author, or communing with the hal- ! lowed nine when lo ! in pops a creditor, audi throws a bucket of ice-water upon your burning j thoughts ! " Ah ! my dear friend, l'iri extremely glad to see you," There's a thumper for you to answer for. " Miss is preparing for a party, the carriage is waiting at the door and still she lingers before tho mirror, adjusting her rich tresses, when in comps a dear friend ; biting her lips with vexation, at the same time forcing a smile, she exclaims " ah, I'm really glad to see you," There's another Hi timncrv f Madam' has pieklcs or sausages to make, and is up to her ears in pots a'nd kettles, when Mrs. Somebody enters with her six little ones all dressed as neat as if they had just been, from six months imprisonment, in a band-box. " Bless me! I'm extremely glad to see you." It's a thumper; it's a down right lie : in tier heart, she wished her and all her brood to the I'd liked to said it. When I hear a person say " do call again and see me," it sounds very much like " John, show tho gentleman out." There is no such thing as sincere politeness; to be what the fashionable world polite, we must necessarily be hypocritical. The character'! body of his friends, and congratulating himself POLITICAL. STANLY OX SIIEPARD. The North State Whig contains the following re ply of Mr. .Stanly to the Card of Mr. Shcpanl, heretofore published : In Mr. Shojianrs card, he says lie was " surpri. sed very much " nt the tone and character of this speech, because, he says, it was evidently' intended solely as an attack upon him, for " having voted a gainst Mr. Badge for Senator." . Mr. S. is greatly mistaken. I commented on his speech, bocaii.se he "-."attacked " Mr. Badgers courst on the compromise bill, and because he en dorsed and .advocated" in the Senate, resolutions which I thought, ridiculous, which I opposed, and for opposing them, I had been attacked. If it was of such vast 'importance to North . Carolina that these resolutions 'should hp adopted, then hereafter the weight of Mr. Shepard'sname would be brought' to bear against, those who opposed them. These consideration's justified me in commenting on Mr. bhepard s peech, in what hs calls one of my "characteristic .speeches." Mr. P. says of this speech, in rather ii cavalier tone, that though'" he heard before io left Raleigh ho had not been sp;ir ed, he still felt so little, interest in the matter, that he would probably have remained in. ignorance of the harm done him, if his attention had not been accidentally called to the published speech." Were I disposed to " attack" Mr. Shepard, I could pro bably cause him to wish this accident had not hap pened ; I might excite his approbation of the verse, " Where ignorance is bliss 'tis folly to be wise." But I have no wish to attack Mr. S., and howev er much I may disapprove his conduct as a Whig, I cannot exactly comprehend, how fa.' es.i-rmii. J Ti, ,t if t we have nod..nl.t will !a what ho never entertained, yet I suppose he means . ' e case) the route a ia 1 bescl. c ed wl ich is above to ueny mat lie is unlnendly to .Mr. JJadger. But Mr. Shepard will pardon me fur saying, if I was in error, in supposing ho was inflSenced by unkind feelings-lo Mr. Badger; in opposing his c lection to tho Senate, I can with justice blame Mr: Shepar.J for the error.. ; At the early part of the session, Mr. Shepard at tended two (four party meetings. I was glad to see him, and hoped to have the benefit of his lal e: 's and experience. But when wo met to noaii nata a Senator, Mr. Shepard was not present. There were eight or nine absentees. We agreed by resolution to vote for that gentleman, who should receive by ballot a 'majority of all the votes. Several committees were iippointcl to wait on the absentees, and desire them to state whether they would concur in this resolution.' Mr. ttay ner and myself were appointed as Eastern men to inform Mr. Shepard. We waited on him sepa rately. In our interview, I am at liberty to say this much, Mr. S. did not complain of Mr. Badger personally, but said nothing to ine about the Com promise, bill, lie did -not say he would'not vote for Mr. Badger, but said, as he did afterwards Setr ral times, he " hoped to bo able to act with his friends." Mr. R iyner also conversed with him, and at our next meeting, after the appointment of the committees, ho reported that Mr. Shepard had not said whether ho would or would not vote for Mr. Badger, but had given rather an indefinite an swer. ' .'-..; Had ho communicated to Mr. Rayner, that he (Mr. S.) objected to Mr, Badger because of his vote on the Compromise bill, can any doubt that wever much I may censure his condiictas a par- Mr. Rayner would have informed him of his own ty mas, in standing aloof from almost the entire opinions? Was it not due to Mr. Shepard's friends of sincerity is lihintness, and a sincere man will never have the back-iche. A NEW SPECIMEN OF ADVERTISING. A watchmaker in Memphis, named Merriman and a merry fellow he seeuW to be, too- thus advertises his business: . . . "Ticked Ui" Somo of my German friends linf gTefll i ma rP m,r litori;mnnl Jt,a with this sentence" Any kind of work Unit you can get nobody else to do, just take it to Merri man's." A respectable Dutch gentleman brought a favorite dog to me a few days since ; " he wash not been satisfied wid his tail, he liksch for me to give him a twist to, vat you call, curl him." I gently referred him to de barber's. " He wash try that he is not like other men, that he alone of all the Whigs in the Legislature -was so true to the " great Southern institution " that ho was not to be influenced by any consideration to vote fur Mr. Badger, because of his opinion of the compromise bill : however much I may think his conduct in the last General Assembly resembled that of the juror who complained that thero wore eleven most obsti " (hp ji,n, ,,n dirl'ered in .oninmn tillv him still I do not wish to "attack" Mr. Shep ard. There was another election, pending in which Mr. S. acted so strangely that he himself thought it proper to make an explanation in the Senate, in which he sjioke of calumnious reports of which I never heard until Mr. Shepard contradicted them. As to this election his conduct was open to attack ; the barber and several peoples ; iney ue no aoiu u j forbftirif ,is constituents are sutulied, I tlx hun : I vas h been said in ier papers, l cin nx any ding most as vas, so he been come here." I told him I never interfered with the works of na ture, but if he had a watch out of order, I should be happy to fix it in the best possible manner, and n the shortest possible time. He vash not migh ty well oandersdand, but he supposed he .might dry some odor place." Mrrimaii, Watch Maker. GGLD FEVER IN NORTH CAROLINA. We observe a letter published in tho Boston At las, dated at Chapel Hill, which state that, on the 10th instant, "a sludont of the University, wlulo kneel the and have no right to complain. But Mr. Shepard says" at the lime ol his vote for Mr. Rayner for Sinat ir, he was ignorant that Mr. 11. entertained the same opinions as those of Mr. Badger upon the Compromise bill." I must be pardoned for expressing surprise at this. Mr Rayner, though a younger man, has occupied as prominent a position in tho eastern part of the State as Mr. Shepard. He was E leclor in that district, and avowed, without any concealment, his opinions. I did not believe it probable that one so well informed as Mr. Shep- ! -..I nf ti... 11 ...i.il.iii ntitjirln moil in liia sni-tinn ftf ingatabrooktodrink.dUphccdartonewitl. 1M n v r v. u i . , . . . . . .1 lite country, tum uu sn win anaic v jh. wu- weight if winch Ins attention was arrvstcd ; . n . - I nnrVnnillinna nil.

The excitement in consequence had been immense. The College is deserted, and everybody is digging gold as if his life depended upon it. Pro fessor Mitchell gives it as his opinion that a vein tf a rich mine in the Western part of the State has been struck." We may as well add, that Chapel Hill being on ly 28 miles from Raleigh.it is curious that our first news of this ponderous discovery should reach us via "Bosting." It may bo all true nevertheless, for aught we know to the contrary. LOWELL.

Strange, that the " opinion entertained in that section of the country " that -r. Badger's vote and speech constii uted a great objection to his re-election, and that " accidentally " Mr. Shep ard's constituent never expressed any opinion of Mr. Rayner's agreeing in opinion with Mr. Bad ger I ! .', And Mr. Rayner too made known his -opinions in the House of Commons, during this last Ses sion, and if I mistake not for I have not the jour nal votrd in accordance with his opinions, and yet Mr. Shepard " accidentally " novcr heard of " Tore I to invtat-j tlio temper " of Mr. Shep ard's card, I should say this is rather ar" charac teristic" explanation. Mr. Shepard says " Previously to my leaving home for the. Legislature, the opinion entertained in this section of country, so fur as I beard any o piuiuti expresied, was that Mr. Badger's voto and speech upon tho Compromise bill, constant; d a great objection to his re-election to the U. S. Sen ate: this opinion I heard reiterated very general ly in Raleigh, and by at least two Whig members of Congress." j And yet Mr. Badger received the voto of every Whig from Mr, Shepard's '' section of tho coun try "-intelligent Wiiigs and patriotic gentlemen and nlso of every other Whig -nber, excepting two who voted for Mr. Clingman, and those two did not rioiind their opootition upon the fact of Mr. Badger's course on the Compromise bill. Is it ui a fair inference, that Mr. bhopard nnd the two Whig member of Congress gi their information " accidentally !" Or liow doe it happen th.it the members of tho Legislature were in. ignoratrceof the opinions of their constituents ? . : : But II r. Shertird dnie that his p)siil'nin to Mr. Badger proceeded from personal hostility." lie says in ft " characteristic" manner " 1 enter 'tain now, and never have entertained any feelings of hostility towarJs Mr. Badger." And although if not to the Whig party, that he should have made known the ground of his objection to Mr. Badger? Mr, Shepard does not seem to relish his having been referred to as " Mr., Senatorial." I did not use the word with any design of giving hitn of fence, but I had heard from on? of his friends that he would accept the office, if eli cted to tho Sen ate, and I had satisfactory reason for believipf, that his friend spoke by authority ; and I used the lu,tnM nnlll , aIa Am U I...I 1w on ruled by some of our Speakers pro tern, that it was out of order to refer to Senators by name. Mr. Shepard says, if he was disposed " to imi tate the temper of Mr. Stanly's speech, &c. Alc, "that he too might use an epithet, and call mo Mr. would-be-Foreign Minister" and then he docs me the honor to add, that he " signed his recommenda tion to tho President, Gen. Taylor, for a foreign mission with the greatest p'eisure ; miaml dis posed to impeach his motives because he aspires to an office to which he is fairly entitled, by his talents and his services." But for this statement, I should not havo felt board to give any answer to Mr. Shepard's ctrd ; and the civil manner in which he speaks of mo, would disarm resentment, if I felt any towards hinl.

Washington, March 15,1819. ; RAIL ROAD MBBTlNa. . ; i'ursuaut to p.tbl'c notice, a respo.'table meeting of the citizens of Orango, was held at the Court House in HilUboro', on Thursday, the 15th iust., to take into consideration the subject of the North Carolina Rail Road, and to adopt such measures in relation thereto, as may seem to be proper among a people, who are likely to be so immediately beue fiitod by the work. - On motion of Gov. Graham, the meeting was or-, ganized by calling Dr. Edmund Strudwick to the Chair, anJ on motion of Giles Mebine, Esq., Den nis Hearlt and Tlrwa B. Biiley, were appointed Secretaries. ', , t Gov. Graham then offered the following Resolu tions, which he said iie had prepared at li-e request of some friends : V . , - ,...i; J . r ., . unmau-u, mc nieiiiuers ot tins iiieetinir will use theiPbcst exertions to raise a sufficient subscrip tion to pnde the Road, so far as it may pass thro' the territory of this County. ... . . f.l'Tthfr' '"'fn'-ritesbeappnin- ed by the Chairman of this meeting to utlmid a Convention on the subject of this Hail Road, pro posed to be held in the 'lown of Sahsbury, in the month ol June next. The Resolutions having been read, tho Governor addressed the meeting at some length, upon the " subjects embraced in them. He spoko of thone cessily of wotks of improvement iu North Carolini to enable our citizens to compete, with any hope , pi" success, with the citizens of other States ; and of the importance of this work as a link in the great chain ot communication between the Lakes on the North, and the Gulf of ; Mexico on tho South, lit e.Xircised it as his opinion, that the best location for the Road, would be through the Counties or Orango and Guilford, thence ty thu M ay of Lexington and Salisbury lo Charlotte. He said it was too late in the day to discuss the bene fits of such improvements ; wo had but to look at Georgia and other States, to see the life and ener gy and prosperity that they impart to Hie citizens, by facilitating and cheapening traiHportatU.n.- A:id how is tl Road to be built ? He did not know whether to iuvite capital rromabroador not- . his opinion was, that we need not rely much upou capitalists in other States, nor upon tha few at heme. It must be done by the bone and sinew of s x country, oy inose who will take a small amount of stock, and pay for it by the sweat of their brow. It roust be engaged in a a work to improve tho condition of the State, and to enhance the value ; of the land, and not as a scheme of speculation on the money invested, though the stock may and prc bably will yield something When the books were opened for subscription, lie hoped all who could aflord to contribute any thing, whether littlo or much, would come forward and take stock ; not enough to injure them, if the stock should not ho profitable, but as much as they would be willing to pay fur the advantages which such an improver m 'nt wonld afford them. We have attempted only to give a slight sketch of a few of the subjects upon which the Govomor UtWli, ttllu tv id,ull I IX. b V . V .. im. . n w have not been able to do h im jastice. Giles Mobane, Esq. followed Governor Graham, with a few plain but impressive remarks, in which he set forth some of the reasons which induced him, as a member of the Legislature, to favor tho North Carolina Railroad. He stated that hitherto, when a project of this kind was brought forward, it was immediately christened as a Whig or Dem ocratic measure, and as such had arrayed against it a strong opposition. But en this measure, libe ral and intelligent men of both political pirtios were brought together; and under such circum stances he felt assured that it must and will be ac complished. The Whigs by themselves can do much, and tho Democrats by themselves can do much ; but What cannot be accomplished when both are united in their cflorts ? Mr. Mebane an swered very satisfactorily one of the objections fre quently urged against a Railrjad, viz. that it will break down the business of wagoning ; and wo would be glad to give the argument just as he pre sented it ; but this we cannot attempt When hn spoke of the loss of time, the expanse of keeping ex tra horses, the exposure of health, and even the sa crifice of life in the business, we heard a farmer audibly and feelingly assent to the truth of hi statement. He concluded this part of his argument by stating that our farmers might be employed in much more profitable business than wagoning, if we had a Railroad completed so as to relieve them from the necessity of carrying their produce tq great a distance to( find a market. , They might spend the time in rooting out the sassafras from their fields, in repairing their fences, in providing', rui.u'o, in clearing up anil ditching lliejt JinJ, &c. thus adding greatly to the value of their plan tations, and multiplying the amount of production which would find a market almost at their very door. One thing he represented a certain ; un less something was done to improve the conJitioit of the people of North Curoliua, the enterprising portion of thorn would emigrate, and. seek some State where bet'.er facilities for getting to market were not denied them. He wished it to b known that he Was in favor of tho Railroad. ' Some had, aaid that his course in this matter would be upo piilr. He did net believe it, . He bad yet lo leant that the people would not sustain one who bad hon estly and fuitbfuily endeavored to promote llieir iu tercets. He concluded by saying that WHid-wi.rk; was easily performed ; but he. would be gUil to ten; when the lima for subscriptions and grading corner D, ...;..,!
