But a great many said that it was more owing to liia having unwisely made a testy old lady, cbief overseer of all his plan tations. She had grown up astonish ingly in hisiificctiona principally owing to her having perfortni-d some opera lions in blood-letting a few years ago, about New Orleans, and was very much given to experiments; and had so cap tivated the people about Ids Boston Plantation, that they made her Doctor. This new title so pleased her fancy, that she wt.nted to doctor every body She soon declared Uncle Sam unsound irr body and mind that he had been making mistakes all his life, and the would 'take the responsibility" of set ting him right that she would retrench and reform hi family expenditures that hii clerks should work all day at half priee that the would kick out all his faithful old stewards and overseers and put men there that would live on two-prnce worth of water-gruel an:l Hominy per day tiht would leave them without time or propensity to ste;il.

She placed all his sold and ti vcr out to keep among all sorts of scamps, vagabonds and pickpockets, and declared it to be a wonderful ex periment. During this time mane difficulties grew up in hi family once she turr. ed all t.is crtnks out of doors, because they looked saspitiously at one offfcie female scullions, and at other times be cause I hey could not think just as he did. The Mack Hawks caught his chickens, and the Bears broke into hU Florida Sugar plantation and run off his workmen, and have baffled his hunters ever since; .and put him to a great deal of eipenseftr ammunition and scare' crows - and his best old hunters have returned in disgust and despair. They also broke into his Creek Plantation and killed his stock and eat his toft corn. But ha showed hia soldiership and hia wit thie time, for he sent such Sly hunters there that they could not' find a place to hide themselves, except those who walked over t his Florida plantation.

Drmginz home, De pe more despatch or at cheaper rates.- This beiug conceded, as from the obvi ous nature of the proposition it urSNt be, the questiou arises whether it is the interest and policy of the State to fos ter and encourage a direct foreign im port tra'de. Pursuinz this inquiry, it i. in the first place, to be remat ked that Virginia has a large export tra Je, large when compared with the aggregate export of all the States. Her exports for three year ending with December, 183r, averaged 35,265,461. This, ol course, gave her that amount of foreign rapi tal, ready to be employed in whatso ever mode that was profitable. Vet, whilst she had it in her power, through the medium of her exports, to obtain ,tiirtv ami at a oil.iro.l rnst !. directly foreign productions d emandrd by her se of trade hither- consumption, the course to hasbcen to-b.ain those productions ' in northern .cities, thereby receiv.ne them through a circuitous channel anil at an enhanced cost. The average import for the period just referred to, has been less tltsn one seventh of her exports; and assuming that the differ ence between those two amounts has been expended in procuring at the north thuse foreign supplies, which her exports would have enabled her to pro cure directly from abroad, and assuming further that the augmented cost of the former operation is equal tu fifteen per centum, and we detect an annual loss .1 n.AA wtrt I . of about R700.000 incurred by -the State from her neglect if the" import trade. Hut that sum is far below the actual annual loss for fifteen per cent um is an under estimate of the addi tion to. the charges nrtnn the foreign supplies coming through (he indirect channel referred to, and the sum assum ed to be inveited in those supplies, is below the actual amount. The loss to the consumer of foreign supplies, so obtained, is equal at least to fifteen per cent, upon the amount of his purchases. Now if any thing be needed to rouse the citizens of our State from the su pineness which could overlook so enor mous a tax upon its industry snd re sources, or reconcile them to it, it would seem to be the consideration that it is with their own sterling money the importation is made, which they submit to receive at second hand at an ruinous a sacrifice.
