The editor of the . Tropic ihe Colonel kicks up a considerable fuss generally about the difficulties that encompass him, such as having been deserted temporarily by hi? associates, having the influenza, a hole in the elbow of his coat,' and laboring under unpleasant political . reminiscences. Man is a dissatisfied, discontented animal, " that's sure as shootin';" and what man is In the aggregate, the Colonel is in the individual. Why, bis position is to ours as Elysium Zion Paradise itself is to purga-tory-j-or, if you ill, a still warmer place. We are solitary and alone. One of our editors has gone North whether to prepare a work for the pres.", or to prepare for matrimony , we are not certain ; another of them is over the lake, stu-dying Walton on piscation and Scott on mili tary manoeuvring ; the third is used down with the iufluenza, and we, our individual self, are almost used up with the same disagreeable dis temper. - We are so deaf that we cannot hear the compositors call for copy but through an ear-trumpet, so hoarse that we cannot call for paste, and. so bad with the rheumatism that we cannot use the scissors. We are so annoyed by a concatination of evils that we have got no ideas of our own, and we are yet so conscientious that we forbear to "appropriate" those of Others. We are so "hot arid feverish, that if we go nigh the thermometer it immediately rises ten or fifteen degrees, and so agueish that we can vill a flute-player of the most mediocre musical ability to perform a succession of scientific shakes which would throw Ole Bull in the shade.

If the decead wasvoung the color of the ensign of mourning is wjite-if old, it i black. Passing through Royal frflt 'veflterday we observed a white crape hung out from a house, the doors and windows of which were all closed, it's appearance drew us into a train of reflection ; had it been black ifwould not, in all probability, have su perinduced a thought.' To die is the lot of all; and when the aged pasB away the pang of pity is less . severe the snocK wnicn nature re ceives is less violent. When we see the black crape hung out we think if we reflect on the matter at all that it is well, perhaps, death has been a visitant there. Tbe deceased may have been a father having ungrateful 6ons a mother having unkind daughters. Ho sup posing him to have been of tho male sex may have found deceit where he sought friendship- detraction where he looked for praise injus tice where equity was due him. He may have been 'compelled to partake , of persecution and to drink deep of adversity. Whatever may have been his lot he was old, or at least " old ish j" if he had been happy, to live longer might be to outlive his happiness ; his demise, therefore, view it as we will, leaves little room for regret. . It is not so when the white crape signals the death of tbe vouner and the beautiful. 1 When sweet spirits are snatched from life, on whose soul sin had not left its imprint nor vice its withering trace, we regret that they should be so prematurely takeu away from a scene which their purity illumined by rays of reflected light : we think they take with them a propor tionate share of that goodness which nature with so niggardly a band endows mortals; we liken them to a flower blasted by an untimely frost a green and tender plant rudely uprooted by the storm. We flatter ourselves that as they had never known passion, envy or un- charitableness, they never would know them, but would go on as they had gone on, blessing and to be blessed. Never do we see a white crape hung out at a door, but thoughts such as these stir within us. ' Saratoga Springs. The number of visit ers at the Springs at present is represented to be full one thousand an unusually large nam ber at this early stage of the season. What lot of hairy faces and brainless heads must be there. . . Storm. A severe storm swept the whole northern seaboard from Charleston to Canada on the evening of the 2d instant. At Charles ton, the turret of St. Paul's Church waa struck and much injured by lightning. At New York there was, after a day of intense heat, a hurricane of wind and dust in the eve' ning which swept the Bay, and prostrated trees on the Battery, shed, &c. &c. At Danville, Penn., there was a thundergust, with bail, by which some nine thousand panes of glass were broken. Large trees were up rooted, and part of the bridge swept away. At 3 o'clock the thermometer stood as high as 103 and at 4 o'clock had fallen to 63. At Quebec there was a violent thunderstorm in the afternoon. Houses and barns were blown down and much other damage done, in the neighborhood and the lightning struck the church of St. Rock while the people were at vespers causing great alarm, but no loss of life. The iron steamship constructed at Pittsburg is now being taken apart, with a view to its conveyance to Lake Erie, by way of Beaver River and the 'Pennsylvania and Ohio Cross-Cut Canal. ft A bail storm was experienced at Brad ford, Vermont, on the 2d inst., which broke thousands of panes of glass. One hail stone was found which, the Bradford Protector says, weighed over a quarter of a pound, and mea sured eight inches io circumference.

The Bulletin, in copying a paragraph from the New York Her ald, stating that the Harlem Railroad Company received, on the Fourth of July, $1,200 as passenger fare, though their charge was no more man tweiye ana a nan cents tor each person, and tbe nde is seven miles, refers to the exor bitant charge extorted by the Pontchartrain Railroad Company thirty-seven and a half cents for four miles of travel and asks why the discrepency 1 It may well put the interro gatory, and we and the public reiterate it why is a price so much above adequate compensa tion charged by the Pontchartrain Railroad Company ? If it is done with the view of patting money in their purse, then it strikes us they defeat what they desire to accomplish. It is an erroneous dogma of political economy, even where no apparent competition exists, that high prices increase profits. This is now generally understood and conceded. The smallest possible profit in individual . cases makes the greatest aggregate gain. The revenue resulting from the English post-office, for instance, is greater now, when a letter is conveyed through the kingdom for a penny, than when the cost of its transportation was sixpence. " Oh, but," say the Pontchartrain Railroad Company, " we have no opposition, no competition there is no other railroad running to Lake Pontchartrain we can charge what we like." - In reasoning such as this lies the great mistake he injustice and inconvenience to the public, and the actual loss to the company. True, there runs no other railroad to tbe lake, and most persons .baring business there are compelled to Bumbit to the exorbitant charge of the company; bat when persons are about to leave the city, for pleasure or amusement, a different question suggests itself.. The party asks himself whe ther be would not do better by paying a nicay une for crossing over tbe river, to Dinneford's weii-iaid-out garden, which, by-the-way, is the most pleasant place to visit that we know of in the vicinity of the city ; or, whether be woold not better consult his finances and his feelings oy taxing we railroad to Carrollton, some seven miles, tor two bilts; or whether, in fact, il would not be better to stay at home altogether than to pay tliree birts for sl ride of four miles on the Pontchartrain railroad. If the companv consult their Own interest, urespectively of that of the public, they will reduce their fare to somethins like an equitable standard. I Thx Whit Craj.

Willis) thus sketches Mde. Casteuan : I should take Madame CaBtellan to be about twenty-two. She is a plump little Jewess, "with an advantage not common to. piumptuude a very uppish and, thorough-bred neck, charmingly set on. A nortrait of her dimpled shoul ders and the back of her head would have been a fit subiect for Titian. Her countenance ex presses an indolent sweetness, with none of the wide-awakity so common to her tribe, indeed, the description of the Persian beauty, by Hafiz, occurred to me on looking at her : " Her heart is full of passion, and her eyes are full of sleep:" , A most amiable person I am sure she is ; but. unless I am much mistaken, there is none of Malibran s intellectual volcano in the " cray- ther." and the molten lava is what is wanting to make her equal or comparable to that won derful woman. 1 certainly do not think we have heard a voice in this country, not even Malibran s, of more astonishing compass than Castellan's. There is not a chamber in her throat where a cobweb could remain unswept for a moment. Her contralto tones are far be yond the plummet of ordinary " soundings," and as rich and eborlless as the gurgle ot a riug-dove, while her soprano notes go up with the buoyancy of a lark, and rais3 on tip-toe all of the audience who am not lortunate enough to obtain seats, still, in ascending and de scending this angel's ladder, she misses a round now and then. There are transitions which catch, somehow. She wants fusion. In her trills, more particularly, the balance is one sided, and there is a nerve in the listener's be- Moin which is not reached by her warble. Give ber more practice, however, and more pasBion-ateness or stimulus, and she would melt over these trifling flaws without a doubt. So near perfection as she is, it seems almost impertinent to criticise her. Wallace's CoNCERT.-'-Wallace'B concert at Baltimore was attended by from eight hun dred to one thousand persons.

The Tariff of Brazil.

He recommends an in crease of duty on all articles of luxury, to be put in force at the expiration of the treaty with England in November, 1844 ; also a duty of 60 percent, on all coarse cotton goods, and 40 or 50 per cent, on finer descriptions, with the view of protecting industry, and finding a home mar ket for the raw material grown in the country.

Jour, of Commerce and other northern papers, last winter, charging certain Catholic Priests in the north-eastern portion of the State of New York (Champlain) with having been guilty of the secrilegiouB act of burning a quantity of Catholic Bibles.' The affair, at the instance of Bishop Hughes, has been fully investigated by a committee of Protestant and Catholic gentle men, and their report, which we give below, is published in the Plattsburg Republican. The editor precedes it with some remarks, and savs As the friend of justice, we freely give place io mo report in question, ti places me wnoie .1 . W - I .

The emigration to this coun try from' the port of Havre this year, is very extensive, During three days in the early part of June, two thousand quitted that port. One peculiarity, until now unexplained, says a Havre paper, distinguishes this new flood of pioneers ; they are no longer only the peasants of Alsace, Switzerland, and the poor States, situated at the north of France, who expatri ate themselves to run after prosperity, but our quays are covered wtth a different emigrating population, whose picturesque costumes, and strange physiognomy excite the curiosity of pas sengers and cause them to stop in their course. These are the inhabitants of the depths of Norway, who have come by the economical method of navigation ; and who after having passed over from north to south, eleven degrees of latitude, have come to Havre to embark, and sail for more favored climates. Several companies, numbering more than six nunareu men, women and children, have already passed by our city, and almost all the Norwegian vessels, this season, bring us some of theseLemi-grants. , An Old Fool.

Much has been said about a State Convention much about the necessity for calling one much about the policy of call ing it much about its powers when called much about the limit or extent of its duties-much about its bearing on the interests and well-being of the State much about it in every form and phase. A writer, however, in the Democratic Advocate, published at Baton Rouge, has set discussion on the subject for ever at rest, by defining its nature, pointing out its powers, developing its dulies,and illustrating its aim and end.

The Bible, the whole Bible, and nothing but the Bible. T HE establishment of a weekly newspaper in the city of New Orleans, devoted o the promotion of Temperance, Education and Religion, is an object of sucb importance and so imperatively called for by tbe peculiar moral and religious circumstances of the great South-West, that it cannot fail it it believed, to secure the approbation of an intelligent and patriotic public. While every other section of tbe U mon abounds in such periodicals, we have not a single paper throughout the entire South-West devoted to the promotion of these great objects. Why should noV the great Emporium of the South and West have i'" Temperance, Literary and Religious pipers, as welt sustain a number of such- periodicals, New Orleans and the whole South-West surely can and will sustain one. And the time has arrived, it is believed, when an attempt to establish such a paper ought to be made , -The public are therefore respectfully informed that It . is the purpose of a few of their fellow-citizens, sliould . a (uthcient numler of subscribers be obtained, to- establish such a paper early in the ensuing autumn ; and tbe public are moreover assured that every effort will be made io give to the New Orleans Star a high-, moral and intellectual character, and to render it m every way an interesting family paper, adapted espe., oially to the moral and religious condition ot the Soutb-West.
